Blake Shelton loves having Gwen Stefani's kids in his life
From the hangout time at his ranch in Oklahoma to the birthday parties he helps his lady, Gwen Stefani, throw, Blake Shelton is all about the kids who've come to hold a central place in his life. The "Voice" coach stopped by the "Today" show this week, where he told Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford how much he loves spending time with Kingston, Apollo and Zuma Rossdale, the sons Gwen shares with her ex, Gavin Rossdale. The funny thing is, having kids around wasn't something he expected. "I never saw that coming. But it's so fun. They are [great kids]," he said (via Us Weekly). "At this point in my life, I kind of had put [having kids] as like, 'Well, that wasn't meant to be.' Then all of a sudden it happens — one way or another — and it's like, 'Wow, I really missed out on a lot.' And so having them around, is you know, I don't even know how to describe it. It's so much fun." Picking up on his gushing attitude, Hoda asked, "You love it, huh?" Blake admitted he does. "Oh my god, yeah," he said with a smile. So does that mean he and Gwen could have a baby of their own? Maybe. A source recently told Us, "their feeling is if it happens naturally, great," adding that "they've decided to not focus on it for the time being."

Elizabeth Olsen slams Empire magazine for Photoshopped 'Avengers' pic
The Photoshoppers strike again. Elizabeth Olsen and her "Avengers: Infinity War" costars appear on the cover of the new edition of Empire magazine and Elizabeth is clearly irked by the liberties that were taken by the art department prior to publication. "April 27th. Does this look like me? #scarletwitch #infinitywar #avengers," she captioned an image of the cover. It didn't take long for her followers to agree. "Unfortunately, no," one fan commented. "My first reaction was, 'who's this? there's a new character?" Said another: "I would like to know why they even thought about photoshopping such a beautiful woman to the point she is barely recognizable? You are a beautiful woman, and I don't understand why they did that. They made a mistake that can't be excused." After her post, the website Screenrant pointed out that given the PR machinery behind the movie, Marvel may have sent Empire the digitally enhanced art the studio wanted used. Either way, our condolences.

Khloe Kardashian is almost ready to give birth in Cleveland
Khloe Kardashian is only about two weeks away from becoming a mom — and she's working hard to prepare for her new arrival, with some help from her assistant and her mom, Kris Jenner. "It was a mad rush to get everything to Cleveland and ready," a source tells E! News. With her assistant at her side, Khloe is reportedly finding space to store things like diapers and setting up baby gear galore. "Been decorating the baby nursery all day! We are so close! Im getting more and more anxious and excited with everyday 🤰🏼👶🏽💕," she tweeted last week. Kris, meanwhile, has already plunked down about $8,000 worth of furniture for the nursery and clothes for the tot, having gone shopping in Los Angeles with Khloe earlier this month. According to E!, Kris will be present when Khloe gives birth in Cleveland, which Khloe's boyfriend, Cavaliers star Tristan Thompson, calls "home." Asked who else from the Kardashian-Jenner-West krewe would be present when "Baby Thompson" arrives, Kris joked to Jimmy Kimmel in January, "Whoever is going to be the calmest I can deal with."

Kim Kardashian on her beauty ritual schedule: 'Even my sisters think I'm crazy'
Say what you will about Kim Kardashian West, but the girl is dedicated to looking her best. Between her show, her makeup line, her fragrance line, her stores, her seemingly endless public appearances and interviews and her family of five, finding time for the self-looking entailed in looking good doesn't necessarily come without a serious commitment (and, let's admit, some serious dinero). Luckily for Kim, she seems to have plenty of both. In a new interview with Glamour, the 37-year-old admits she'll go to great lengths to schedule beauty treatments whenever she can cram them into her busy schedule. "Like last night at 10:00 P.M., I went to get a facial. I was like, OK, I've put all the kids to bed — I have to take care of myself. I really needed this facial, and I'll go to bed at midnight tonight," she explains. "Even my sisters think I'm crazy because I'll take the time to do that when most people won't, or I'll get up at 5 a.m. and workout before the kids get up. I try to do 'my' time on off-time — so that's really limiting. My schedule is really intense, but I feel like it's still a priority to me to pamper myself and take care of myself for my own sanity." Having dedicated helpers like doesn't hurt. "Sometimes I'll see a picture of myself that I don't like, so I'll screen-grab it and text it to [my esthetician], and go, 'Oh my God, my face is falling, we need a tightening facial.' Then she's just like 'OK, when do you want to come in?' I said, 'Honestly, could we do it ASAP?' And she said, 'OK, why don't we both put our kids to bed (she has four of them), and then meet up later?' Dream come true. Her name is Melissa, and she's at this little salon in West Hollywood called Skin Thesis. She's amazing." This week, Kim's set to release 16 new shades of concealer as part of her KKW Beauty Line — which she hopes will be similarly amazing for those of us who may not have Melissa at our beck and call. "Obviously I need more concealer because you have less sleep, so my eyes are more of a problem now," she said, referring to her 2-month-old daughter, Chicago. "When I do my own makeup, I don't take longer than 10 minutes. I don't have a lot of time, kids are running around, screaming, while I'm trying to get ready … Motherhood has helped me figure out how to consolidate and just get things done as quick as possible."
Why Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake are voluntarily freezing themselves in NYC
When Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are in New York City staying in JT's downtown penthouse, they make time "every other day" for a visit to Quick Cryo in Tribeca. That's according to the New York Post, which reports the couple have been regularly indulging in cryotherapy — a process in which folks submerge themselves in a subzero temperature-based tank for three minutes. The process is said to "eliminate cellulite, melt fat and lift and tighten skin, according to the company's website. It can also purportedly reduce inflammation, improve skin tone, burn calories and help fight stress and sleep problems. For Justin, who's reportedly rehearsing intensely for his New York City tour dates this week, it's apparently great for his muscle recovery process. Given the 12-18 inches of snow the Big Apple was expecting on Wednesday, March 21, perhaps they can save some cash and just stand outside before everything turns to slush.
Tori Spelling shares sweet post about her kids growing up in the wake of mental health scare
After a bit of a scare, things may be looking up for Tori Spelling. On Tuesday, March 20, she shared a sweet selfie with her son, Finn, on Instagram. "It's the 1st day of #spring … I can't believe my 4th 'bud' 🌷 Finn has blossomed into this strong beautiful funny and kind 5 year old flower 🌺," she captioned the shot. "I love watching all 5 of my babes blossom. I water them with love daily and empower them to grow to their fullest potential. #Liam #Stella #Hattie #Finn #Beau #WatchingMyGardenGrow," she added. A few weeks ago, police rushed to Tori and Dean McDermott's home to check on "a domestic disturbance" after she was said to have been having "a breakdown." She also called the police when she thought someone was breaking in, but it turned out to have been her husband instead. While it's unclear where things stand with Tori's mental health now, she and her family — which also includes Liam, 11, Stella, 9, and Hattie, 6 and Beau who was born last spring — appear to be happy, healthy and spending plenty of time together … at least on social media.
Taylor Swift sends Amber Rose's 5-year-old son a special gift
"Thank you @taylorswift! 🙏🏽❤️😍" So said Amber Rose on Instagram after she helped her son, Sebastian, open the surprise gift the singer had sent the 5-year-old. "I have a surprise for you! Ready? Look at that. Taylor Swift sent that to you," Amber said in the video post. "This is going to be so exciting! Oh my gosh, she sent me a letter," Sebastian adorably crooned. When he finally peeked inside, Amber revealed what else was in the package. "Guess what? She gave us tickets to go see her in concert. She gave us tickets to go see her show!" she exclaimed. It should come as no surprise to learn Taylor knew Amber's little man was a big fan. A video posted by his mom showed Sebastian singing every word to "Look What You Made Me Do." The clip got more than 1.5 million views, according to E! News — and that was before "Reputation" even came out. Taylor's tour kicks off in May. We can't wait to see video of Sebastian singing along to his hero as she performs live!
Jimmy Kimmel praises Aubrey O'Day for having 'hated' Donald Trump Jr. before anyone else
Way to find the bright side, there Jimmy Kimmel. As the Stormy Daniels – Donald Trump saga continues, news that Aubrey O'Day's song "DJT" was likely about an affair she allegedly had with Donald J. Trump, whom she's said to have had an affair with while he was married to his wife, Vanessa, is giving late-night hosts plenty of fuel. From Jimmy's perspective, Aubrey was onto something, given the negative tone of the song, which includes the lyric, "I hate me for loving you, hate you for letting our love die." "Today we are bombarded by stories that say Donald Trump Jr. had an affair with a contestant on 'Celebrity Apprentice,'" Jimmy said in his monologue on Tuesday, March 20 (via TooFab). "And I'll tell you something, when I saw the headline, my first thought was, 'Oh, please let it be Gary Busey.' But it wasn't Gary Busey. The celebrity apprentice little Donnie allegedly had sex with while his wife was pregnant is Aubrey O'Day. She was in the singing group that Diddy put together called Danity Kane," he continued. After joking that "the Trump men certainly do have a type," ahem, he pointed out, "You have to hand it to Aubrey O'Day, she hated him before everybody else did. How is it possible she released a song called 'DJT' and we are just finding out about it now. We need to do better people!" Finally, he noted that Aubrey's next choice of suitor after young Donald was "Jersey Shore" star Pauly D. Said Jimmy: "I guess she likes grease in her hair."
Hilary Swank gives a health update on her dad
It's been three years since Hilary Swank announced she was taking time off to care for her father following his lung transplant. On Tuesday, March 20, the actress stopped by the "Late Show" to check in with Stephen Colbert about her new show, "Trust," which premieres on FX on March 25, and about how her dad is doing. "He's great, thank you for asking. For those of you who don't know, my dad got a lung transplant. It's the hardest surgery a person can undergo and I thank all the people that make themselves a donor, it saves lives," she said (via ET). "They had given him a short time to live if he didn't get a lung transplant and thankfully he got one and he's alive and thriving and well." She later acknowledged that she wanted to "help him through that life journey," inspiring Stephen to comment that she's a great daughter. Said Hilary: "Well, what a lovely dad he is."
Ricki Lake: New doc is 'the best legacy' late husband could leave
Prior to his suicide last year, Ricki Lake's ex-husband found that marijuana helped alleviate the symptoms of his bipolar disorder. He co-produced a film with Ricki, "Weed the People," that deals with how cannabis oil can save lives — and why not it's not being made more accessible. The doc premiered recently at "SXSW." "The response has been amazing. It's a film that means so much to me," Ricki told People. "This is the best legacy he could leave. I'll miss him every day for the rest of my life, but I'm so proud he left this film behind." Christian was 45 when he died on Feb. 11, 2017.
