Caitlyn Jenner, Khloe Kardashian don't seem to have made amends
Caitlyn Jenner hit a major milestone on Monday, Oct. 28 — she turned 70. And while happy birthday wishes streamed in on social media from family and friends, including her daughters, one daughter's voice was noticeably not among them. Rather than add to the love, Khloe Kardashian, whose relationship with her father has reportedly been strained since the debut of Cailtyn's memoir, instead shared cryptic messages about the importance of having "purpose" in one's life and shedding anything and anyone that is not contributing to that purpose. It would appear things are strained on both sides of the relationship, too. According to Us Weekly, Caitlyn even bailed on a scheduled appearance at the opening of Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida, last week after learning Khloe and Scott Disick would be there. Earlier this year, it sounded as if Caitlyn and her daughters had moved beyond the feud regarding what Caitlyn wrote about Kris Jenner in her memoir. It's unclear when Caitlyn and Khloe spoke last, but at one point, it had been a couple of years.

Olivia Wilde says her 'heart is broken' after airline edited out lesbian kiss scenes from 'Booksmart'
Olivia Wilde and the stars of her directorial debut, "Booksmart," Kaitlyn Dever and Beanie Feldstein are working this week to "get to the bottom of" how and why an airline censored out the lesbian love scene before showing it on a flight. According to NBC.com, the airline — reportedly Delta, although Wilde has not called out which one it was — removed a scene in which Devers and Feldstein's characters share a kiss but left in multiple kisses between heterosexual couples. The airline also reportedly edited out a scene that showed a more involved makeout session. "I don't understand it," Wilde told Variety at the Academy's Governors Awards on Sunday, Oct. 27. "There's censorship, airline to airline, of films, which there must be some kind of governing board to determine. We rate it a certain way. If it's not X-rated, surely it's acceptable on an airplane." The movie is rated R, but Olivia notes that violent scenes remain in movies shown on planes regularly. "There's insane violence of bodies being smashed in half and yet a love scene between two women is censored from the film," she said. "It's such an integral part of this character's journey. I don't understand it. My heart just broke. I'm trying to get to the bottom of it; I want people to experience the entire film." Feldstein also chimed in, saying the three women are on the case to get this rectified." She added: "Our movie is a beautiful representation of the queer experience as young people. I'm a queer person. So we're getting to the bottom of it, don't worry. If you can watch me and Skyler [Gisondo] kiss, you can watch Diana [Silvers] and Kaitlyn kiss."

Camila Cabello hands out relationship advice to fans on Twitter
Camila Cabello might want to consider moonlighting as a therapist. Over the weekend, the singer asked her Twitter followers what was "going" in their lives and got thousands of replies, many of which involved relationship issues. Rather than ignore them, Camila responded to tweets with specific advice, telling one follower she'd "never know" if the person she likes feels that way too unless she asks. "He might feel the same way but be hiding it cause he doesn't think you do – and if not, then you don't waste your time and u can know how he feels," she posted. Another fan sounded sad about possibly giving up the idea of finding the right love. "Oooooothat's not true! You just haven't met anyone you like yet, just keep hanging out and putting yourself out there, you'll meet someone and then you'll be like WHOAH EARTH IS SHAKING ," Camila replied. Others said they were having problems finding ways to express their feelings or ask questions about relationships and Camila dished similar advice. Finally, when a user named Jessica excitedly wrote that it was the one-month anniversary of her romance with her girlfriend, Camila posted a slew of Emoji hearts and a big "congrats."

Once again, 'Ye positioned himself on the conservative side of the spectrum, slamming Democrats and abortion and seemingly confusing the procedure with the contraceptive Plan B, taken the day after sex to reduce the chances of pregnancy.

"We're brainwashed out here, bro," Kanye began. "Come on, man. This is a free man talking. Democrats had us voting [for] Democrats with food stamps for years. What are you talking about? Guns in the 80s, taking the fathers out the home, Plan B, lowering our votes, making us abort our children … Thou shall not kill."It wasn't long before anti-abortion groups shared the video widely alongside messages about Kanye having moved over to the ideological "good side."

LuAnn de Lesseps minced no words regarding Bethenny Frankel's exit from "The Real Housewives of New York City" this week in an interview with Jenny McCarthy for her SiriusXM radio show. Asked about Bethenny's sudden announcement she wouldn't return for Season 12, LuAnn said she was "shocked" but also got that Bethenny wouldn't want to feature her relationship with Paul Bernon on the show, according to People. "Bethenny is, I always say, she's a lot of fun, she can be really nasty … she's very funny. Those are the people you kind of get up for in the morning 'cause they challenge you," she continued, admitting she would not miss "walking on eggshells" in Bethenny's presence now that someone new is taking over that role.

Because a lot was Bethenny coming in and kind of stealing the show. … But guess what? … She can't steal our show." Though she couldn't say much about the new housewife, she did praise her as "a great addition to the cast," who is "interesting … smart … [and] successful" in addition, it seems to having a juicy "backstory."
