Caitlyn Jenner, 68, celebrates her successful foundation fundraising with her rumored girlfriend, 21
After hosting a successful fundraiser for the Caitlyn Jenner Foundation this week, Caitlyn and her rumored girlfriend , 22-year-old Sophia Hutchins, were spotted winding down with a quiet dinner at Craig's in Los Angeles on Thursday, July 26. The night before, the pair gathered 50 friends and relatives together to help them support the mission of Cait's foundation, which, according to its website, was created to "promote equality and combat discrimination by providing grants to organizations that empower and improve the lives of transgender people, including youth, anti-bullying, suicide prevention, healthcare, housing, employment and related programs." Although Sophia later thanked "friends and family" for attending, it's unlikely there were any Kardashians on the guest list. Caitlyn remains at odds with her stepdaughters and ex-wife. Sophia, however, seems to have become extremely important to the former Olympian's. "Cait really sees herself spending the rest of her life with Sophia," a source previously told Heat magazine (via the Daily Mail). "She lost her support system when she fell out with her family and these days, it feels like Sophia's the only person she can count on." The two have generally maintained they are simply good friends — or played coy about the answer when asked directly if they're dating.
Will Beyonce be Anna Wintour's last Vogue cover star?
If Page Six's sources are right, Beyonce's Vogue covers are about to add to up to her favorite number. A new report claims Bey is slated to cover the magazine's September fashion bible issue, with Tyler Mitchell handling the photography. It would mark the singer's fourth cover for Vogue overall. Bey, who also covered the publication in 2015, 2013 and 2009, was not interviewed last time she appeared on the front of the magazine. The jury's still out on whether the September issue will be the last helmed by Anna Wintour. Although Conde Nast has denied the claim, WWD reported in June that "Numerous industry sources have insisted in recent weeks that Wintour is indeed set to leave her 30-year post as editor-in-chief of American Vogue, with the reveal of a soft exit thought to be coming after the all-important September issue." In April, insiders told Page Six something similar.

She added that she thinks Meghan's totally cut out for her new duties as a member of the royal family.

"I really feel like that's what she was born to do and I hope this gives her the opportunity do that."

Justin Theroux is DMing his way into the 'Queer Eye' inner circle
Slidin' into Instagram DMs doesn't have to be creepy, just ask Justin Theroux. While plenty of folks, celebs included, use the social media platform's private conversation platform to pick up dates, Justin recently used it to make some famous new friends. The "Leftovers" star recently told "Extra" he's become tight with "Queer Eye" cast members Antoni Porowski, Tan France, Karamo Brown, Bobby Berk, and Jonathan Van Ness. "It came about by literally just DMing Jonathan," he explained (via Refinery29). "I saw on his Insta Stories he was in New York and so I was like, 'Why don't you just come, you know, come over?' It was Easter and I was like, 'Come over and have some Easter with me,' and he came. He was like, 'I'm in Uber already and I'm coming right over,' and gradually we started getting some of the other guys to come over and it turned into this little clutch at my house." So far, lots of important tips are being exchanged, including but not limited to Tan trying (unsuccessfully) to impress upon Justin that he can wear colors besides black and white and Justin showing Antoni the right way to protect veggies when they're stored in the refrigerator. Not that Antoni needed the help — Justin told "Extra" his vegetable wisdom was not news to the gourmand.

Our initial goal is to help educate women and men of all ages, by creating a 24-hour crisis intervention line and emergency transitional shelter." Bobby established a non-profit, the Bobbi Kristina Serenity House, last year, with similar goals. Next week, the mayor of South Fulton, a district of Atlanta, along with the Fulton County Commissioner and a member of City Council plan to award Bobby and his wife, Alicia Etheredge-Brown, a proclamation honoring Bobby's plans to build the shelter, according to the paper. Bobbi Kristina died at age 22 after being rendered comatose for six months following what her family maintains was a "toxic cocktail" given to her by her reportedly abusive boyfriend, Nick Gordon.

Are Britney Spears and Sam Asghari chapel-bound? A source tells Us Weekly Brit and her boyfriend seem to be on track to make their love official in the very near future. "Sam will be with Britney for [her] entire tour and they are more in love than ever," the insider says. "Even though Sam is younger than Britney, he is extremely nature for his age. Don't be surprised if they get engaged in the next year." For his part, Sam sounded plenty ready to pop the question when he chatted about the singer with Men's Health earlier this month. "She motivates me more than anyone," the 24-year-old said of Britney, 36. "It's crazy who I can be humbled by a person like her. If I could be that humble when I'm that high in life, that would be the best thing.I grew up with three sisters and my personality is just to be a supportive person for my family and she's family. I'm always going to support her. She is another blessing that happened to me." Britney and Sam met on the set of her "Slumber Party" music video back in 2016.
Cardi B cancels Bruno Mars tour plans to be with her baby
When she was pregnant, it seemed Cardi B had every intention of proceeding with plans to join Bruno Mars for his "24K Magic" world tour. Now that she and Offset are parents to baby Kulture, however, things are looking a little different. "As of today I've decided I won't be joining Bruno on tour this Fall," the new mom said on Instagram this week. "I thought that after giving birth to my daughter that 6 weeks would be enough time for me to recover mentally and physically. I also thought that I'd be able to bring her with me on tour, but I think I underestimated this whole mommy thing," she continued. "Not only am I just not ready physically, I'm not ready to leave my baby behind since the doctors explained it's not healthy for her to be on the road. I hope you guys understand that this decision has been the hardest to make but I have to do what's best for myself and my baby!" She signed off by expressing her gratitude to her would-be tour partner, writing, "Thank you Bruno for being so supportive and understanding."
