Anna Faris and Michael Barrett appear to have confirmed their engagement
Did Anna Faris just confirm she and her boyfriend, Michael Barrett, are tying the knot? Over the weekend, TMZ caught up with the couple as they left a dinner party in Santa Monica and as they graciously smiled for photos, some of the photographers hollered "congratulations," assuming the rumors about their engagement are true. Anna politely said "thank you," telling another paparazzo that she and Michael aren't ready for the "big day" quite yet. She and Michael, a cinematographer, reportedly started dating in 2017 following Anna's split from Chris Pratt, with whom she shares a son, Jack. Asked how she and Michael were doing that evening in Santa Monica, the actress replied, "We're wonderful."

Kylie Jenner and Stormi both attended Travis Scott's Astroworld Festival
Despite Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott's decision to part ways, the two have spent plenty of time together since announcing their split in early October. So perhaps it was no surprise that when Travis staged his second Astroworld Festival over the weekend in his hometown of Houston, Kylie was front and center for at least one of the acts. The Houston Chronicle spotted Kylie rocking out alongside some friends during a performance by Spanish singer Rosalia on the smaller stage. According to the paper, Rosalia shouted-out to Kylie at one point and dedicated a song to the makeup guru. ET later noted Travis mentioned the former couple's daughter, Stormi, was at the festival, as well. "Kylie and Travis are in a really good place and are slowly hanging out with one another more and more. They aren't back together, but neither is seeing anyone else right now," an insider recently told ET. A source close to Kylie recently told the same outlet she's not thinking about dating anyone — including Drake, to whom she was linked earlier this fall — adding that she's still hoping she and Travis can "make things work."

Katie Holmes opens up about volunteering with Suri
Seems we're not the only ones who've noticed how great Katie Holmes' fashion choices seem to be lately. Speaking to Stellar for the magazine's new cover story, the actress says there's not much to her style approach, admitting, "I just pick what I like wearing. I don't have a lot of time to choose, but I go with classics and kind of throw it on and walk out." She's less casual when asked about her relationship with her 13-year-old daughter, Suri, who joined her mom earlier this year on a trip to Greece to volunteer at a Syrian refugee camp. "My daughter and I do a lot of volunteer work together," she said (via JustJared). "Children have a natural empathy towards others. I enjoy volunteering with my daughter and hearing her point of view and listening to her suggestions on how we can help. It's important to go and see for myself, and to be part of helping people in any way that I can."

Former "Bachelor" Nick Viall is putting an end to rumors he and Rachel Bilson are dating. Asked about his romantic life during an interview with Us Weekly on Saturday, Nov. 9, Nick said Rachel is a "friend."

Was Giuliana Rancic snubbed at the PCAs?
Hollywood doesn't seem ready to forgive Giuliana Rancic for her 2015 comments about Zendaya's dreadlocks. At least, that was Jezebel's take after watching multiple celebs dodge the E! host or cut short their interview with her on the People's Choice Awards red carpet. E! News even posted a clip showing Gwen Stefani prematurely end her talk with Giuliana in favor of oohing and ahhing about the adorableness of Pink's family as they passed. (A fair distraction, we might point out.) Zendaya also apparently avoided Giuliana. According to radar she wants nothing to do with the reporter ever since Giuliana suggested Zendaya's dreads probably "smelled "like patchouli oil, or maybe weed" on that fateful Oscars red carpet four years ago. Giuliana now lives in Chicago.
Drake booed offstage at Tyler, the Creator's festival
Also in the doghouse on Monday, Nov. 11 … is Drake, who was booed right off the stage at Tyler, the Creator's Camp Flog Gnaw festival over the weekend. Hollywood Life's sources say the audience was expecting Frank Ocean — and even chanted "we want Frank," as if to demand a change in lineup during Drake's set. They had no luck with the Frank pleas — but when Drake finally asked if the audience wanted him to "keep going," he got his answer: A round of boos. Ouch.
Kelly Ripa gets sentimental about her love for costar, Ryan Seacrest

This month, it was Kelly's turn to send Ryan some love, pegged to his induction into the Radio Hall of Fame on Friday, Nov. 8.

She went on to gush: "Kind, talented, smart, generous, funny, authentic. A total package. I'm honored to call you a friend for all these years." Jimmy Fallon handled inducting duties at the ceremony, according to People.
Lady Gaga pops up onstage with jazz trumpeter, surprising Vegas crowd
The front row at jazz trumpeter Brian Newman's show this past weekend at Las Vegas' NoMad got a surprise treat in the form of Lady Gaga, who appeared, unannounced, onstage with Brian to perform a few tunes. According to LasVegasRun.com, the singer's been popping up on other stages after her "Jazz & Piano" residency performance at the Park MGM, where NoMad is also located. Turns out Brian handled bandleading and arranging duties for Gaga's residency shows, among other collaborations. (He co-produced her "La Vie En Rose" for "A Star Is Born," as well, according to his website.) Decked out in a black and gold bodysuit with metallic leafing across the front and fishnets, the singer alternately crawled around the stage, cuddled up to The Doors' guitarist Robby Kreiger and belted out her vocal part while Grammy-winning trumpeter and acclaimed film score composer Terence Blanchard contributed his voice to what turned out to be a serious jam session. Her residency continues in December.
Prince William, Prince Harry, Duchess Meghan and Duchess Kate attend the same Remembrance Day events, but do so separately
In the wake of Prince Harry's acknowledgment of a rift between him and his brother, Prince William, both royals and their wives, Duchess Meghan and DuchessKate, were on hand to observe multiple events related to Remembrance Day on Saturday and Sunday. But as Forbes points out, the couples neither arrived together nor sat together — they didn't even pose for photos together or, apparently, speak to one another. The outlet also notes only a few public events mandate both couples attend, and their separate seating is reportedly per usual. Still, there used to be more in the way of "Fab Four" photo ops if, nothing else …
