Arnold Schwarzenegger is bodybuilding icon, and Gold's Gym in Venice, California, is a bodybuilding mecca. It's also been Arnold's gym for years… until now. According to TMZ, the "Terminator" star went to the gym for a morning workout on June 16, one of the first days that gyms were able to reopen amid the coronavirus pandemic. As Arnold entered, he noticed that several people in the middle of their workouts were not wearing masks. Front desk staff informed him that members were required to wear masks when they entered and when they were in certain common areas, but that the state doesn't require masks to be worn when people are actually working out. Arnold quickly left. The former California governor "will stay clear of Gold's until people start wearing masks on the floor — or when there's a vaccine," TMZ reported. On June 18, Gold's responded, explaining that it wouldn't change its policy but completely supported Arnold's decision.
How's this for an ex story. Just a few days after Jennifer Aniston made a $1 million donation to Color of Change, an anti-racism organization, ex-husband Brad Pitt reportedly matched it. Color of Change is aimed at helping advance the causes of black communities and "ending the injustices black people face," according to its website. "Brad is really involved with the charity because of Jen and said he would match her donation," a source told The Mirror. "He went to the protests this week and was at her home the day after. They are both very passionate and want to help as much as they can."

Hollywood reacted with glee on on June 15 after the Supreme Court ruled that LGBTQ+ workers are protected from job discrimination by federal law. "WE WON!!!!! A 6,3 decision at the Supreme Court today saying it is sex discrimination to fire someone #LGBTQI+ from their job for being who they are," Laverne Cox happily tweeted. Ellen DeGeneres called it "historic." Mandy Moore called it "a bright spot in a dark time." Charlize Theron called it "a necessary & overdue step for LGBTQ+ rights." Perhaps the most interesting part of the ruling was that President Trump appointee Neil Gorsuch penned the majority opinion after siding with the court's more liberal judges. (In his 38 months on the high court's bench, the justice had mostly sided with the more conservative members of the court.)

She might have been fired from her reality TV show, but Stassi Schroeder is about to take on a more important role: mother. On June 15, the former "Vanderpump Rules" star's rep confirmed reports that Stassi and fiancé Beau Clark are expecting. "Stassi and Beau will be welcoming their first child the first week in January and are grateful and eager to begin the next chapter of their lives as parents," her rep said in a statement. The pregnancy announcement came just days after Stassi and three others were fired from "Vanderpump Rules" for past racist actions.
Danny Masterson was charged with "forcibly raping three women" between 2001 and 2003, the Los Angeles County district attorney announced on June 17. According to the Los Angeles Times, the former "That '70s Show" star is accused of raping a 23-year-old woman between January and December 2001, a 28-year-old woman in April 2003 and a 23-year-old woman between October and December 2003. The alleged crimes occurred in Danny's Hollywood Hills home, but few other details were released. An arraignment is scheduled for September. The actor has previously denied any wrongdoing. Last August, four women filed a lawsuit against the actor, accusing him of sexual assault and claiming that he, his religion — the Church of Scientology — and the faith's leader, David Miscavige, engaged in a campaign of stalking and intimidation after they came forward with rape claims. Leah Remini, a former Scientologist and now critic of the church, responded to his arrest on twitter, warning, "This is just the beginning."
Raven-Symone is a married woman. On June 18, the former "Cheetah Girls" star announced on Instagram that she'd tied the knot with Miranda Pearman-Maday. "I got married to a woman who understands me from trigger to joy, from breakfast to midnight snack, from stage to home. I love you Mrs. Pearman-Maday!" the actress captioned a photo with her new wife. It appeared that the duo wed in their backyard. "Thank you to all those who helped and for those who understand why it was small during this time," Raven added, referring to the coronavirus pandemic. Miranda posted a photo of herself kissing her bride. "8PM ~ my wife for life," she said on Instagram. The couple hadn't publicly revealed their relationship until they both shared the wedding photos on June 18.
"The View" co-host Sunny Hostin opened up about insulting comments that were allegedly levied at her by an an ABC executive. Last weekend, The Huffington Post published a report about Barbara Fedida, the ABC News senior vice president of talent and business affairs, which detailed a history of racist behavior toward black on-air talent and staffers. One of those people Barbara allegedly zeroed in on was Sunny. "It was a tough weekend for me," Sunny said on her show on June 15, holding back tears. "And I was really disappointed and saddened and hurt when I learned about the racist comments that were made, allegedly, about me, my colleagues and my dear friends." Those alleged comments, Sunny said, "tells me that systemic racism touches everything and everyone in our society, regardless of social stature. No one is immune."
It seems that Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green have moved on. On June 16, pictures surfaced showing Brian — who in May confirmed that he and the actress had quietly separated in late 2019 — grabbing takeout with reality star Courtney Stodden, although reports have claimed they're just friends. That same day, Megan's new beau, Machine Gun Kelly, gushed about her on Instagram — in fact, he even dropped the L word. While sharing a video of them having a romantic picnic on his Instagram Story, he wrote, "in love." On June 15, photos showed Megan and MGK holding hands too.
Past comments return
On the heels of Bravo firing four "Vanderpump Rules" stars after their past racist acts were publicly revisited, a former "The Real Housewives of Orange County" star revealed that she thinks a current star on the show should also get the ax over racially charged comments she's made in the past. In a June 16 Instagram Q&A, Tamra Judge said that Kelly Dodd should be booted from the Bravo show after a 2016 video in which she said she doesn't "like black guys" resurfaced. Kelly, who appeared to be inebriated in the video, also added, "I don't even know any black guys." Asked about the video, Tamra called it "disgusting" and cited the recent "Vanderpump Rules" firings. "Bravo shouldn't just single certain people out like Stassi [Schroeder] & Kristen [Doute]. There should be zero tolerance at this point," Tamra said. Kelly had some thoughts of her own and took a shot at the former "RHOC" star. "She's just thirsty and mad she got the bullet," Kelly responded, referencing Tamra's exit from the reality series earlier this year. "Grasping for straws poor thing .. I hope she finds happiness."
Jamie Foxx called out Tyrese Gibson this week after the "Fast & Furious" star shared a racially-charged four-picture montage to Instagram that included an image of white people in chains. Tyrese claimed reverse racism was happening in South Africa. The Instagram post, which he later deleted, didn't sit well with many people, including several prominent South African celebrities. Tyrese then posted a video that seemed to show Black celebrities claiming systemic racism doesn't exist, although the video was extremely edited. He later deleted the video, but not before Jamie let him have it and questioned the reason for the posts. "Race doesn't matter???!! Look at what we goin threw right now… what does this post mean?? Who is this for??" Jamie commented. "Again I say! What is this post for??? During this horrific time for us? Why are we even talking about what these guys are saying from the comfort of a press junket?? Cmon man we can't be this comfortable. Think about the pain these families are going threw Because of the color of their skin.." In response, Tyrese posted a 30-minute video trying to explain himself — although he didn't necessarily issue a meaningful apology, which many, many South Africans continued to demand in the comment section. "Dear South Africa," he captioned the video, "This is my response to what has now become controversial- Love and light always! [shout to team short attention span] Ha!" The video was widely panned… and, like the other posts, Tyrese deleted it from Instagram.
