Bob Barker is resting at home following ER visit
Bob Barker has reportedly been released from Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles and is continuing to recuperate at home from the severe back pain that sent him to the emergency room over the weekend. According to TMZ, the longtime "Price is Right" star has been hospitalized twice in the past two months. Both situations were sparked by back problems. He's expected to have a long, slow recovery given that he's 94, but will attempt to do some daily movement to regain his strength. TMZ notes Bob also has family in town for Thanksgiving who will likely pay him a visit.
Demi Lovato unfollows Nick Jonas, Selena Gomez, Iggy Azeala
As Demi Lovato continues her recovery program after overdosing this summer, she's making some changes to her social media, weeding out folks she previously followed Instagram. Multiple outlets posted this week that the singer recently unfollowed her longtime pal and tour mate, Nick Jonas, Iggy Azalea and Selena Gomez. The Iggy unfollow doesn't come as much of a surprise, despite the fact that the two were so close Demi was slated to be in Iggy's wedding before it was called off. At one point, Demi posted on a fan account, "True friends don't do interviews about you when you OD," in reference to an interview in which Iggy talked about Demi's relapse before it was public information . Her decision not to see posts from Nick and Selena seemed surprising to some, but E! News points out Demi actually unfollowed Nick in June. Selena and Demi, meanwhile, seem to go back and forth with regard to their social media exchanges. Selena, who returned to a treatment center herself this fall, unfollowed Demi in January. When Demi unfollowed her former child star pal on Twitter in 2014, she told Andy Cohen of her relationship with the singer, "I think it's just one of those things where people change and people grow apart."

Kim Kardashian admits Kanye West isn't crazy about all her sexy selfie posts
In case you were wondering how Kim Kardashian West's husband feels about all those racy selfies the "Selfish" author posts on Instagram, the answer is … not always positive. Kim stopped by "Ellen" on Wednesday, Nov. 21, and when Ellen DeGeneres flashed (er, no pun intended) a photo of Kim baking in a bra panties and asked about Kanye West's reaction to shots like that, Kim revealed she sometimes gets in hot water with her man because of her posts. "That outfit I probably had on under the sweats, but sometimes you gotta do some things for the 'gram.' So we do little impromptu photo shoots just for Instagram. But I wasn't walking around baking like that," she admitted, according to CNN. "And you can get in trouble with your husband sometimes over too many photos like that." For Kanye, Kim added, "It's like half and half," explaining, "He always wants me to be me and feel confident and we're having fun, but it also bothers him." Now that she's 38 and has three kids, Kim says she "goes through waves" when it comes to what to post. "Sometimes I'm like 'OK, I'll be more conservative on my Instagram.' Sometimes I really have to get something out if I'm feeling good about myself or I've been working out really hard, and then I'll post something and he'll get upset. It's a cycle." Kim and Ellen didn't spend the whole time talking about the reality star's proclivity for sharing steamy selfies, though. According to TMZ, Kim also opened up about their evacuation from the deadly Woolsey Fire and how it inspired them to do what they could to help their less fortunate neighbors. The couple reportedly worked with Adidas and Kanye's Yeezy brand to raise relief money. Kim also presented a $200,000 check to the California Community Foundation's Wildfire Relief Fund, another $200,000 check to the California Fire Foundation and a $100,000 check to a firefighter and his wife who lost their home. The fireman, Michael Williams, continued fighting fires for his neighbors after his own house was destroyed in the blaze.

Kerry Washington reunites with former 'work husband' Tony Goldwyn on Broadway
Just a few weeks after "Scandal" alum Tony Goldwyn went to support his longtime Shondaland costar, Kerry Washington, on opening night of her Broadway play, "American Son," Kerry returned the favor, cheering for Tony from the audience as he performed in the new Broadway version of the classic 1976 film, "Network." Sharing a silly pair of selfies on Instagram after the show, Kerry gushed about her love for her Tony, captioning the post, "Former work husband. Current friend for life. I will always be one of his biggest fans." She also posed for a selfie with Tony and the play's star, Bryan Cranston, calling the production "bold," "innovative," "fun" and "inspiring."

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin take their kids to a Broadway show
"One big happy family." That's how Gwyneth Paltrow and her ex-husband, Chris Martin looked when the pals and co-parents took their kids, Apple, 14, and Moses, 12, to see "Waitress" on Broadway on Monday, Nov. 19. "Gwyneth and Chris looked happy together and their kids too," another theater-goer tells Us Weekly, adding that the group "seemed to love the show," which Apple and Moses "were singing along" to. Before the show began, the fam grabbed a moment to catch up with Tony Award winner, Ben Platt. "It looked like their kids were fans," said the spy.

They've remained on positive terms since then, as Gwyneth married TV producer Brad Falchuk back in September, while Chris has been getting increasingly serious with Dakota Johnson.

How Celine Dion's kids helped inspire new gender-neutral kids clothing line
"The highlight of my day is always being with my children." So says Celine Dion, who's currently juggling her mom duties to 8-year-old twins, Rene and Eddy and her 17-year-old son, René-Charles, 17, with a Caesars Palace residency and the launch of her gender-neutral capsule collection for kids, Celinununu. The 50-year-old singer tells People she's been asked to collaborate with other children's clothing companies, but working with Nununu was special to her because she believes in the importance of fostering kids' appreciation of their own unique spirits, something the brand is all about. "Even though my young sons are twins, they are so different," she says. "If one likes to wear a certain shirt, the other one wants something completely different. They're searching for their own individuality. It's important for their emotional growth. … My kids love the clothes and I love what the line is about: positive change and promoting individuality." The line features more than 70 styles for kids up to age 14 and uses colors like yellow, gray, black and white instead of the go-to pinks and blues that often end up promoting gender stereotypes. "We're offering other choices and letting parents know you don't have to follow stereotypes," Celine tells People. "It's great to have options. Every parent should do what they feel is right for them and for their children."

Viggo Mortensen on 'Green Book:' 'This is a particularly good time' for a movie like this
The way Viggo Mortensen sees it, "Green Book," his new film with Mahershala Ali, has perfect timing, given what's going on in the world today. On Tuesday, Nov. 20, the star opened up about the movie in a Q&A with SF Film in San Francisco (via Screen Daily), explaining why he hopes the story will hit home with viewers. "Audiences will go see it and something will permeate," Viggo said of the film, which riffs on "The Negro Motorist Green Book," a guide for African-Americans traveling in the U.S. during the era of Jim Crow and segregation. "Any time would be a good time for a movie like this to come out, but this is a particularly good time. It's the thing that's so hard to do — socially relevant and profound but it goes down smoothly and percolates into you," Viggo explained. "I think that the positive reactions to 'Green Book,' and to what Pete [Farrelly] has accomplished, are deserved and correct. That's my opinion. I think it's a special movie."
