Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello were photographed holding hands and cuddling during a coffee run in West Hollywood on July 7 — seemingly confirming rumors from late June that they're an item. (It wasn't the first PDA-packed sighting of the "Señorita" collaborators since they first sparked romance rumors: The pair were also caught canoodling in a booth at a West Hollywood restaurant in the wee hours of July 7, snapped holding hands in Los Angeles on July 6, photographed walking hand-in-hand outside Shawn's West Hollywood pad on July 5 and seen holding hands at a Fourth of July party in Malibu.) In spite of the fact that they've become essentially inseparable, the "Stitches" singer seemingly denied that they're a couple in a video posted by Pop Crave on Twitter on July 6: He shook his head "no" when a fan asked during a Q&A if he's dating the former Fifth Harmony member. However, TMZ reported on July 8 that they're the real deal. According to the webloid's sources, Shawn and Camila's relationship "is genuine and not a publicity stunt."

During an interview with Vogue that hit the Internet on July 9, Ariana Grande described her relationship with her ex-fiancé, Pete Davidson, as "an amazing distraction" from a difficult time in her life — specifically her breakup from the late Mac Miller, who died of an accidental overdose in September 2018. "It was frivolous and fun and insane and highly unrealistic, and I loved him, and I didn't know him," she said of the "Saturday Night Live" star.
David Foster and Katharine McPhee tied the knot at the Church of Saint Yeghiche in London on June 28. The bride donned a custom Zac Posen gown (the first of three) with the lyrics to "The Colour of My Love" — a song her hubby wrote for Celine Dion and René Angélil when they wed — sewn into the back. "Zac told me he wanted to incorporate our love of music somehow into the dress," Kat told Vogue of the special detail, explaining that David "always admired" Celine and René relationship, which he saw blossom from the very beginning.

Guests included Sophie's bestie and former "Game of Thrones" co-star Maisie Williams, model Ashley Graham and the groom's brothers, Nick Jonas and Kevin Jonas, as well as their wives, Priyanka Chopra and Danielle Jonas.

"This has been the best week of my entire life. The pure love I have been surrounded by these past few days is indescribable," she captioned a slideshow of photos. "Round 2 of wedding celebrations here in my hometown. We had every single member of my immediate family (22 of us) together for the first time in two years, the entire Chmerkovskiy family made the trip out to Utah, and all my neighbors and friends I grew with. I don't think I have stopped smiling from ear to ear. Get ready for me to blow up your feed with some of my favorite pics from this week and our reception!!"

Charlotte, who is the daughter of Princess Caroline of Hanover, donned a custom Giambattista Valli dress during her second wedding.
On the July 8 episode of her eponymous talk show, Wendy Williams confirmed she has a new boyfriend — but he's not 27-year-old fashion designer Marc Tomblin, to whom she was linked in June. "I'm not on the market anymore," she said. "I'm not in love. I don't know how I'm doing. I'm not in love, but there's somebody that I'm crazy about." Continued the hostess, "It's not who you think. OK? Mother doesn't deal with children, but it just so happens that I guess with my charm and wit, I attract people of all ages. … Twenty-seven-year-old boys, quite frankly, do find me very attractive. I get it. But when it comes time for the comfort of a man, I need somebody in his 50s too, and he's gotta work. It helps that he's a doctor. … He's been married. His kids are in their 20s, and, yes, he's black." She also explained how her relationship with Marc was taken out context, claiming that they were photographed holding hands as she showed him around New York City because he was steadying her as she dealt with her vertigo. "I'm a hand holder. If we go out, I'm holding your hand," she said.
People magazine reported on July 3 that according to a rep for La La Anthony, the actress and her husband, Carmelo Anthony, "have been living apart for quite some time," and the "Power" star is now "proceeding with legal discussions as the next step in their relationship." In late June, the duo stoked split speculation when La La celebrated her birthday with friends in New York City as the basketball star spent time with a swimsuit-clad mystery woman on a yacht off the coast of France. At the time, Melo denied that he and the beauty — whom he described as a married friend — were having an affair. La La, meanwhile, shrugged off her husband's absence from her birthday festivities, telling People she "was appreciative" of the "nice gifts" Carmelo sent, as well as the "really nice" birthday message he shared on Instagram. Page Six, however, reported on June 27 that La La was "a wreck" over her husband's perceived infidelity. "She has trust issues and does not trust him fully," said a source. (The off-and-on duo separated in early 2017 amid reports that he'd been unfaithful, then reconciled in the summer of 2018.) Contributing to La La's lack of trust? Multiple media outlets identified Melo's yacht companion as Swedish-Moroccan model Sara Smiri — and there have been conflicting reports about whether or not she's actually married.

The duo's "Vanderpump Rules" co-stars Scheana Shay, Ariana Madix, Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Lala Kent and Katie Maloney-Schwartz served as bridesmaids, while Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz served as the groom's two best men.
Dua Lipa and Anwar Hadid confirmed they're a couple by kissing and cuddling during British Summer Time Hyde Park in London on July 6, a day after they were photographed arriving together to the O2 Silver Clef Awards, which are also in London. According to TMZ, the pair connected through Anwar's sister, Gigig Hadid, who's pals with the "One Kiss" singer, and bonded over their "mutual appreciation of their respective musical talents." The model-DJ reportedly asked out Dua after he found out in June that she was back on the market after parting ways with longtime off-and-on love Isaac Carew. Things went well enough that Anwar invited the London-based singer to his 20th birthday party in Los Angeles, where, according to the webloid's spies, "it was obvious to everyone that something was going on between them, as they looked very much so like a romantic pair." TMZ adds that the globe-trotting duo "are committed to making it work … for now, anyway."
A few days before it became clear that Dua Lipa and Anwar Hadid are an item, the rumor mill was hard at work linking her to Chris Martin. The Sun reported on June 30 that the "One Kiss" singer and the Coldplay frontman kissed backstage at the Glastonbury Festival in the U.K. after she introduced him to her family. The British tabloid alleged that Chris was "really flirty" with the chart-topper, who's almost two decades his junior, and "didn't leave her side all night." Said an alleged witness, "There was clearly a lot of chemistry between them." But Chris wasn't having it with the false report. His rep released a statement to multiple media outlets denying the story: "Contrary to reports in some press today, we would like to confirm that Chris Martin and Dua Lipa did not kiss at Glastonbury and are just friends. They were both in the same area of the festival with a larger group of friends," said the rep.
On June 13, Joshua Jackson was photographed kissing a mystery woman at LAX Airport following a Los Angeles lunch date, seemingly signaling that his relationship with Jodie Turner-Smith had come to an end. (See the photos here.) The "Dawson's Creek" alum and the "Nightflyers" star were first linked in late 2018 and, according to Page Six, looked very much like a couple during a party in New York City on June 11. Whatever happened between Josh and the mystery woman, everything between him and Jodie had clearly been resolved by June 30, when they were caught on camera grocery shopping in Calabasas, California, with their arms wrapped around each other. The following day, Jodie took to Instagram to share a photo of herself in Rome, lying in bed naked while smiling and gazing at her phone. "i will always look at you this way," she wrote in the caption. Commented Josh, "Wherever whenever. I'll go there too." On July 10, the back-on pair were photographed kissing and walking hand-in-hand in Los Angeles.

On the June 27 episode of Reality Steve's podcast, Haley Stevens found out that Jed Wyatt — who's currently competing for Hannah Brown's heart on Season 15 of "The Bachelorette" — cheated on her before he left for the show. (The Sweet Leah singer revealed in mid-June that she and Jed were still together when he left for the reality series — she was under the impression that he was only going on the show to further his music career and that they'd pick up where they left off when he returned home, but instead, he completely ghosted her once he got back.) After Haley mentioned how many people have reached out to her on social media since she came forward with her story, Steve brought up the woman Jed slept with two weeks before he and Haley went to the Bahamas together in early 2019 … which was news to the singer. A crying Haley explained that although other women had confessed to her that Jed flirted with them, she wasn't award of the fact that he'd actually slept with anyone else. "I've seen the text messages. They are clear as day as to what happened," Steve told Us Weekly of the overlap between Haley and Jed's other woman. "I believe her story. She shared a lot. … he had no idea about Haley or the show. Jed never brought either of those things up."
According to an Us Weekly source, Teresa Giudice and Blake Schreck — the 26-year-old realtor to whom she was linked earlier this year — "looked very much like a couple on a date" during an outing in New York City on June 27. The duo reportedly hit up a rooftop cocktail bar, where they "were laughing a lot together, according to a spy. But the still-married reality star's attorney has denied (again) that the age-mismatched pair — who also happened to spend the Fourth of July in the same small Jersey Shore town, according to Radar Online — are a couple.

It's 100 percent strictly business," the attorney told Us Weekly.

According to People magazine, which published photos from the nuptials, the pair consider themselves to married "before God" and plan to make their union legal once the former star of "The Dukes of Hazzard" finalizes his divorce.

On the June 27 finale of MTV's "Double Shot at Love," Vinny Guadagnino chose to exclusively date Alysse Joyner. But after the episode aired, he revealed on Twitter that they're not together anymore: "Unfortunately, Alysse and I weren't allowed to see each other publicly after filming for 5 months until the finale aired to not spoil the ending. Very weird situation to be put in after the finale. I struggled to keep it alive through text. Still think she's amazing. Wish her the best," he tweeted. Vinny then doubled down on his claims during an interview with TheWrap, alleging that he felt like he couldn't text Alysse because he was worried their messages would spoil the reality show's ending if his phone got stolen. "The stakes were so high that we were told to keep the contact as minimal as possible," he said. But Alysse called bull on his comments, accusing the "Jersey Shore" star of simply ghosting her. "We did talk for a few weeks and it was great, and then it kind of faded away and he just stopped trying. It was real — that's why I was so hurt after," she said on the "Double Shot at Love" reunion special. Although Vinny told TheWrap that if Alysse "wants to continue to talk to me, maybe we'll see each other in the real world," she's not interested — especially not after several women reached out to her on Twitter to tell her that Vinny has been sliding into their DMs since the show debuted.

But we're not dating," she said.
Lala Kent took to Instagram on July 3 to explain why she recently deleted all traces of her fiancé, producer Randall Emmett, from her Instagram page — a move that sparked rumors that the pair were headed for a split. "I've been with this man 3 and half years. We've been through hell and back together. He is my soulmate, a part of who I am. The day I met him I knew I wanted to protect him forever. Sometimes things don't go exactly as I plan. People are hurtful. They create entertainment off of your pain. I get it, it's what I signed up for. I don't feel he did. In a moment of feeling protective, angry, and impulsive, I deleted every photo of him, including the moment we got engaged. I felt what people were saying was so unfair and I'm the one that put him out there like that. He is the love of my life. He is kind, and thoughtful, and everything you want when you're thinking of your future partner. It is a privilege to be around him. No matter what anyone will ever have to say, this is my boo. This is our life. Rand, I will always protect you. 4.18.2020 I'm locking you down for life," she captioned a photo of them kissing.
Meanwhile, Kristen Doute and Brian Carter prompted speculation that they'd rekindled their romantic relationship with their affectionate behavior during Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright's June 29 wedding, which Brian purportedly attended as Kristen's date.

On the most recent "Vanderpump Rules" reunion special, which aired on May 6 but was taped back in March, the reality star said that she and the photographer were on a break. After the episode aired, Kristen told E! News that she and Brian hadn't reconciled yet. But a lot can happen in two months!
In other "Vanderpump Rules" love news… On the June 30 episode of Stassi Schroeder's "Straight Up With Stassi" podcast, the "Vanderpump Rules" star and her boyfriend of more than a year, Beau Clark, revealed that they're talking marriage. The topic came up when the reality star mentioned the macabre details she'd like to include in her dream wedding — like "a haunted horror version of 'Here Comes the Bride'" and "dead people serving cocktails, like, dead-looking butlers." Said Stassi of potentially planning a wedding with Beau, "I feel like we're not gonna get along." After confirming that he's not game for Stassi's gothic-themed wedding plan, Beau — who joked that they "might as well get married on Halloween" — said that he hasn't "thought about a wedding theme" because he's "still thinking about the wedding ring." Stassi went on to say that when they do tie the knot, she's "gonna have, like, four dresses and they're all gonna be white." She also said that she wants a destination wedding, a Taco Bell food truck at the reception and no bridesmaids.

The duo have been dropping subtle hints about their relationship status on Instagram for months, though it was unclear at the time if they were a couple or just super-close colleagues. Janet dropped the biggest clue on May 25 when she posted a photo of herself wearing a bikini by the pool in Miami Beach.

(Sometime after their April breakup, he changed the video's caption to read, "We split but this was still a beautiful moment in my life.") Mod also told TooFab of his ex, with whom he publicly feuded in May, "I keep that girl in my prayers right now. I'm a little worried about what the mind goes through.

Later, during an interview with blogger Tasha K, Gabrielle alleged that Safaree planned to propose to her in late 2018 … and then used the ring he bought for her to propose to Erica just a month later. (Gabrielle claims she had no idea Safaree and Erica were an item.) The "Love & Hip Hop" star caught wind of Gabrielle's accusations, and though she initially defended Safaree, she ultimately deleted photos of him from her Instagram and took to her Story to share some cryptic photos and videos expressing her anger. Safaree then took to Twitter to apologize: "This is not a loss I would be able to handle.. I've lost a lot b4 and dealt with it.. but seriously I cannot lose you. I have never felt so complete in my life and that feeling will be gone if I lose you. You are my everything and I cant see my future without you. Please Erica," he tweeted on June 28. "I am sorry for any embarrassment I have brought to you from me being immature. I apologize from the depths of my soul & heart. You are the most important person to me in the world. I know this is a joke to some ppl but this is real life and I made a mistake. I'm sorry." By June 30, Erica had clearly forgiven Safaree: "Sorry to crush you guys in her DM's dreams but I'm still here," he captioned a photo of them together on Instagram on June 30. The back-on couple have been professing their love for each other on social media ever since.

The singer claims she's "only been with five people" in her life, though she called her former partners "a variety pack." She also dished on her first marriage to music exec Tommy Mottola, who's 20 years her senior: "You might want to picture a child bride," she said. "There was a conscious effort to keep me as this all-American, whatever that means, girl. It was very controlled. There was no freedom for me as a human being. It was almost like being a prisoner." (According to Cosmo, he's since called their marriage "wrong and inappropriate.")
Julianne Hough dished on her intimate relationship with her husband, Brooks Laich, on the July 7 episode of his "How Men Think" podcast. While revealing that she and her hubby once sought the advice of a sex therapist, the dancer said, "A lot of people don't know even what they want. … My curiosity has saved my life and honestly saved our relationship many times because we've been curious about like, 'Hey, something doesn't feel right. Instead of just accepting it for how it is, let's look into something.'" She went on to say that after they took a compatibility test, she realized "there were certain things that gave me connection and intimacy that were different than what gave Brooks connection and intimacy." Added the blonde beauty, "By almost learning each other's language, sort of like love languages, it was almost like a menu of how we could please each other sexually, but also intimately."
On the July 2 episode of Nick Viall's "Viall Files" podcast, "ET Online" host Lauren Zima revealed that she's the one who made the first move on her new boyfriend, Chris Harrison: She direct messaged him on Instagram after they ran into each other on set and the Bachelor Nation host, whom she's known professionally for years, suddenly gave her "a different vibe." Before that, their relationship had always been "incredibly professional," she said, adding that she never really looked at Chris to determine whether or not she "found him attractive." But then he "somehow brought up being single," said Lauren, calling his new single-guy vibe "fairly overt." Lauren "somehow communicated" to him that she was also single, and then after they went their separate ways, hit him up on Instagram. After "a little bit of messaging," he finally asked her out for drinks. "I sort of feel like I'm reaping the benefits of someone who's worked on ['The Bachelor'] and learned how to talk to women for so long," Lauren gushed of her beau. "He is so communicative. He's so thoughtful. He's so clear with his feelings and a good listener. … I don't expect 'Bachelor' dates from him, but I will tell you: He has taken me on a helicopter. … I have such a great time with him. I have so much fun, and I'm so happy with him if we're scanning through movies to find something to watch on TV or if we were in the helicopter."
Ashlee Simpson has been happily married to Evan Ross since 2014, but a decade before they tied the knot, the "Pieces of Me" singer dated her hubby's pal Ryan Cabrera. During an interview with TooFab that hit the Internet on July 5, Ryan revealed that Evan actually checked in with him to make sure everything was cool when he first started seeing Ashlee in 2013: Ryan already knew that Evan and Ashlee had been hanging out when Evan came over to his house to talk to him about it, he said. Ryan gave his pal the thumbs up to date his ex — but didn't get confirmation that they were an item until later, when he saw the news on TMZ. "We're great friends now. She ended up marrying one of my best friends," Ryan said of the current state of his relationship with his former flame. "Me and Ashlee were always really, really close. Our breakup was pretty smooth other than a couple of things, but we remained friends very shortly after we broke up and then remained friends from that point on. We were always cool. And then Evan … we've been friends for just as long of a time — like 15 years. Then eventually, obviously, there was something there with them." Continued the "On the Way Down" chart-topper, "People always think it's weird. I'm like, 'It's not weird! We dated 15 years ago.' I want her to be happy and I want him to be happy, and what better way, actually, than to have two people that you love and actually care about be together and be happy? To me, that rules. I think it's completely normal. … Just because we didn't work out doesn't mean I want you to do terrible. I want you to be happy."
On the June 24 episode of "The DL Hughley Show," Sherri Shepherd took some shots at her ex-husband, Lamar Sally. After DL said that he had a bad first impression of Sherri's ex, the actress replied, "Everybody said that. Steve Harvey said it. Everybody. Barbara Walters said it. Whoopi wouldn't come to my wedding. Everybody tried to tell me. The only person who showed up was Kym Whitley because she got a free iPad. She was my bridesmaid. We gave away free iPads." Sherri went on to say that she married Lamar despite her friends' warnings because she was lonely while shooting "The View" in New York City (her co-hosts all had their own families, she said) and fighting for custody of her son, Jeffrey, from her first marriage. "You can't do stuff out of fear and being lonely," she said. "At the time, I was in my 40s. I was scared. I was like, 'I'm getting older. Who's gonna wanna be in a relationship [with me]?'" Sherri, who also said she was eager to end a period of celibacy when she started dating Lamar, met her ex through her pal Niecy Nash — he was friends with the "Claws" star's husband, Jay Tucker. "And look, we never had sex," she said of Lamar, who caught wind of the interview and wrote a response to TMZ, which the webloid published on July 3. In the letter, Lamar accuses his former missus of lying about his character, trolling him on social media and dating websites, blocking him from getting television writing jobs and using him as fodder for her comedy acts. "I've forgiven you because I know if the trauma you suffered in your childhood but enough is enough," he wrote. "I will not have you lie that the only reason you married me and brought our son into the world was because you were lonely. … We had a good marriage and our son was conceived out of love from both parents." He ended by imploring Sherri to consider how her words might affect their son and encouraging her to "go back to therapy," "leave us alone" and "stop being so bitter." The duo welcomed a son, Lamar Jr., via surrogate in 2014. Sherri later accused her ex of manipulating her into having the child, whom she's disavowed, so that he could squeeze child support payments out of her.
Jennifer Lopez professes her love for Alex Rodriguez in the first volume of her "It's My Party Tour Diary" series, which she filmed in mid-June. The first half of the video, which hit YouTube on July 6, centers around the singer-actress's disappointment that an illness prevented her from delivering a perfect performance during her tour stop in Las Vegas. But Alex, who was on hand for the show, insists it was fantastic. "Alex said it was the best show he's ever seen," J.Lo says after a pep talk from her beau. "That's why I love him and I'm gonna marry him. Whether he wants to or not, we're getting married. We're getting married forever and ever."
During an interview with E! News that hit the Internet on July 1, Bachelor Nation couple Kaitlyn Bristowe and Jason Tartick — who recently adopted a dog and made the decision to move in together — said that when it comes to getting engagd, "the stars are aligning for sooner rather than later." After Jason said that he thinks Kaitlyn "has an expectation" that he'll pop the question "within a year," she chimed in, "I don't have an expectation. I don't expect anything. I just think on the path that we're on, it would make sense that this is the next step. And moving in, we have the confidence in our relationship. We just rescued a dog together so that just feels like the next step in our relationship." Jason confirmed that they're "on the same page" about what they "want out of this relationship." When the time does come for the pair to tie the knot, just don't expect them to say "I do" it in front of the cameras: "We want to share things with [fans] but I think I want it a little more private," said Kaitlyn.
Fox Nation host Tomi Lahren took to Instagram on June 30 to announce that she and her boyfriend of about a year and a half, former college football player Brandon Fricke, got engaged in New York City the previous evening. "I love you more and those are my Final Thoughts and you are my forever. 6/29/19 #Iloveyou #teamTomi #foreverandalways," the conservative talking head captioned a slideshow of photos of herself and her love showing off her new engagement bling.
Bethenny Frankel gushed about her relationship with Paul Bernon on the July 8 episode of "Live With Kelly and Ryan." Said the reality star, "I'm happy. I'm happy in a way that's different — not a high or a low, just a balance, which, if you know my personality at all, it's not often that balanced. But I feel just balanced and healthy." When Ryan asked if that balance has anything to do with her beau, she replied, "I think so. Yeah. My boyfriend's very calm and centered and, yeah, balancing. And I'm just settled. I came off a relationship that was the opposite. We've all been in that kind of relationship where you're up and down, in and out, and you're not ever sure of your footing. And because I'm older, I wasn't sure if it's just because I can't really have that sort of same relationship [now that] I have a career, I have a daughter, I've had a nasty divorce. So I wasn't sure that I could have just that normal, beautiful, loving relationship that you remember from high school or college or something. And that's what it feels like." It's unclear if Bethenny was referring to her late ex-boyfriend Dennis Shields or someone else when she mentioned the former relationship that was "the opposite."
Jill Duggar Dillard made headlines in late June when she took to Instagram to share a slideshow of photos showing how she and her husband, Derick Dillard, celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary. One shot showed a copy of "The Little Book of Kama Sutra: The Classic Guide to Lovemaking," which sent some members of the former "19 Kids and Counting" star's conservative fan base into a tiff. So Jill returned to Instagram to explain that she and her husband "are not recommending the Kama Sutra" because they "believe marriage is ordained by God and husbands and wives should filter everything they read and hear together through the lense of the Bible and not practice anything unbiblical." Wrote the reality star, "The little book pictured is a modern, smaller, cleaner, edited version that doesn't focus on spiritual aspects, homosexual, or other extramarital relationships, and again, we don't take everything in there either as the truth. It is always good to be aware and careful of what we allow into our minds, hearts and marriages. We've not read the actual Kama Sutra and only promote biblical marriage (i.e. between a man and woman who are married). We just wanted to clarify since there has been a lot of discussion after this post."

Here's to learning and growing together," she captioned a photo of herself resting her head on his shoulder while sitting together in the desert. On June 29, Justin also took to Instagram to share a sweet shot of himself and his missus in the desert. "These are the moments I live for.. alone time with you refreshes my soul.

During an interview for Luc Belaire's "Self Made Tastes Better" video series, Eve dished on falling for her husband, Maximillion Cooper, saying that she first noticed his "quiet confidence," which she called "refreshing." Added the rapper, "I'm not a romantic, but I remember meeting him and being like, 'I need to know what he does every day.' Like, I was more interested in him than I'd ever been in anyone, and that was nice." The "Let Me Blow Ya Mind" chart-topper, who said it's "a big pull" that Max doesn't work in the music business, went on to say that she's "never been with somebody more supportive" than her hubby. "I've never ever had this in my life — ever," she said. The duo weren't familiar with each other when they met on the red carpet at a 2011 event for the Gumball 3000 rally, which he founded. (She was performing that year.) "We've been together ever since," she said. "We looked at each other, and I remember just [thinking], like, 'Hm, he's cute.'"
