Nikki Bella sparked rumors that she's reconciled with John Cena for the second time when she took to Instagram on Nov. 22 to share a photo of herself and her ex cuddling in a hot tub with a bottle of wine while admiring a stunning sunset. The pic appeared as the sixth of 10 photos in a slideshow depicting the things for which the brunette beauty is thankful. "Happy Thanksgiving! I'm so thankful for so many wonderful things in my life as well as so many incredible people in my life," Nikki wrote in the lengthy caption. She went on to express her gratitude for her friends and family, her WWE co-workers and female co-stars, her "Total Bellas" and "Total Divas" production team, crew and glam squad, her life coach, her partners at her Belle Radici wine label and Birdiebee clothing line and her fans, as well as members of the armed forces and first responders. Though she didn't call out John by name, she expressed gratitude for "all the sunsets I have enjoyed, all the lessons I have learned … the good and bad days." Despite the PDA-filled post, TMZ reported on Nov. 27 that Nikki is "still very much single" and "was simply reminiscing over the past year and thinking back on what she was thankful for … just some Thanksgiving reflection." According to the webloid, "She posted several pics of other people in her life — and John was a part of that."
Radar Online (which should be taken with a grain of salt) reported on Nov. 28 that Jamie Foxx and Katie Holmes are planning to tie the knot in Paris next year. "Paris is the city where they decided to go public with their romance after years of sneaking around," said a source. "Jamie's been a handful ever since they started secretly dating in 2013 — but Katie's convinced him to settle down, and they're ready to make it official. … Katie has waited a long time to marry Jamie, and she's now made it clear where she wants to get married and when. … She's desperate for a winter wedding in the City of Light." According to Radar insiders, the pair are already living together in a $56 million five-bedroom penthouse apartment in New York City. As for Katie's daughter with Tom Cruise: "Jamie will adopt Suri when the time is right, but not before they've said their vows," said the source. "They know it won't go down well with Tom, but it's what he and Katie want — and also what Suri wants. She barely knows who Tom is!" Later on the 28th, Gossip Cop checked in with reps for both Jamie and Katie, who denied the wedding report.
A rep for Kit Harington released a statement on his behalf denying Olga Vlaslova's claims that she had a month-long affair with the actor before and after he married Rose Leslie in June. The Russian model, who alleges that she met the "Game of Thrones" star in Luxembourg, released nude photos of a man she claims is him. "The allegations in this story are completely false," the rep told Us Weekly in a statement published on Nov. 24. "He's never even been to Luxembourg nor has he ever met Olga Vlaslova."
Shawn Mendes opened up about his relationship with Hailey Baldwin — and her whirlwind marriage to Justin Bieber — during an interview with Rolling Stone that hit the Internet on Nov. 26. After admitting that they were definitely more than friends, he described their relationship as "more of a zone of limbo" as opposed to a friend zone. "I don't even wanna put a title on it," he said. As for her marriage? "I texted Hailey, 'Congratulations,' and I really am happy for them. She's still one of the f—— coolest people ever — she's not just a beautiful person visually, but she's one of the most beautiful hearts I've ever met," he said. "I think I'm an idiot to not, you know… But you can't control your heart," he added, implying that he just wasn't that into the model. During the same interview, the singer copped to having "no game" with women — "Being good-looking doesn't make you have game," he said — and fessed up to feeling like his relevancy as an artist is connected to his relationship status. "I had this thought: 'I have to get paparazzied with someone. Who am I gonna get? I'm not relevant,'" he said. "I was like, 'Ugh, you f—— idiot. Why did you think that?'" Added Shawn of the attention to his personal life, "I'd like to say I don't care about it, but that's not true." As for the constant whispers that he's gay? "In the back of my heart, I feel like I need to go be seen with someone — like a girl — in public, to prove to people that I'm not gay," he said. "Even though in my heart I know that it's not a bad thing. There's still a piece of me that thinks that. And I hate that side of me. … I thought, 'You f—— guys are so lucky I'm not actually gay and terrified of coming out.' … That's something that kills people. That's how sensitive it is. Do you like the songs? Do you like me? Who cares if I'm gay?"
During an interview with The Cut that hit the Internet on Nov. 25, Lena Dunham revealed that she stopped talking to longtime friend Lorde in the wake of reports that the Kiwi singer-songwriter was dating her ex-boyfriend, Jack Antonoff, who produced Lorde's 2017 album "Melodrama." Said the "Girls" creator, "It was so embarrassing. … I don't think anything happened between them. I can never know someone else's life. I have never spoken to Ella [Lorde] about it. We haven't talked since Jack and I broke up. It was awful, and I couldn't do anything about it except trust that what he was saying to me was true." Lena also isn't thrilled about Jack's new relationship with model Carlotta Kohl: "I thought I was kind of proving weird girls can have love too. And now he's dating somebody who looks regular and normal and like girls are supposed to look." As for her own relationship with the accomplished musician, "Our relationship probably lasted longer than it should have," said Lena. "He's a very loyal person, so he was not going to bail when the going got tough." She went on to describe how Jack supported her as she faced a barrage of health issues in recent years. "But when you're sick, so much energy goes into making sure the other person is well that you're not even noticing maybe our schedules aren't compatible. Maybe we want different things out of our lives. Maybe we have different attitudes about what family means. Maybe these essential questions that people have to ask themselves all the time are not being asked, because we just want to make sure that I don't pass out at the grocery store." But all's not bad for the actress-writer-producer, who confirmed that there's a new man in her life: "For several months," she's "been very casually seeing an artist she met through mutual friends," The Cut reports. (Could he be the same mystery man from earlier this year?)
Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger spent their first Thanksgiving together with her family at the home of her mother, Maria Shriver, People magazine reported on Nov. 26. Katherine's brothers, Chris and Patrick Schwarzenegger, were also on hand for the Thanksgiving morning festivities, which included a football game for the brothers, which the A-lister and his girlfriend reportedly watched from the sidelines. "You can tell Chris knows Katherine's family really well," said a source. "Chris always seems very comfortable around her family. It's like he is part of the family. … Even in front of Maria, Chris and Katherine were very affectionate. They held hands, kissed and enjoyed their morning. … They later had Thanksgiving dinner together that Maria had organized."
Josephine Skriver took to Instagram on Nov. 26 to reveal that she and Alexander DeLeon, who's also known as Bohnes, got engaged three days earlier while vacationing in Finland. "I SAID HELL-FREAKIN'-YES!!!! I'M ENGAGED," the Victoria's Secret Angel captioned a slideshow of photos depicting the proposal. "It was a cold November night. Alex had us driven all the way to Finland to see the northern lights. It was my second bucket list number i was checking off in the same week after swimming with Orcas, my favorite animals, in their natural habitat! Little did i know it would soon be my third!

After 13 years of coupledom, Miguel and Nazanin Mandi — who've known each other since they were teenagers and got engaged during a trip to the Dominican Republic on New Year's Eve 2015 — finally tied the knot in an outdoor ceremony at Hummingbird Nest Ranch in the Santa Susana Mountains near Los Angeles on Nov. 24. Vogue.com published exclusive photos of the nuptials, for which the bride donned a long-sleeved Monique Lhuillier gown. She changed into a second look for the reception, during which guests including Vanessa Hudgens and boyfriend Austin Butler had the option of dining on In-N-Out Burger.
"The Walking Dead" star Tom Payne revealed on the Nov. 25 episode of "Talking Dead" that he and longtime love Jennifer Akerman, the younger sister of actress Malin Akerman, are now engaged. The English actor let the engagement news slip while sharing a brief spoiler-filled story that included a cameo from the model-singer: "I was texting my girlfriend, now fiancée," he said during the conversation, which covered a few major "TWD" plot points. The duo have been an item since 2013.
"Morning Joe" co-hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough tied the knot in front of the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights in the rotunda of the National Archives — which were closed to the public at the time — in Washington, D.C., on Nov. 24. U.S. Representative Elijah Cummings officiated the extremely intimate nuptials, which were attended by five guests, as well as Mika's two daughters from her first marriage and Joe's four kids from two previous marriages. According to Vanity Fair, the duo, who got engaged in 2017, didn't send out formal invitations but rather "made about 14 phone calls to their family members and close friends." It was the first time a wedding has ever been held in the National Archives.
Ross Mathews took to Instagram on Nov. 25 to announce that he and longtime love Salvador Camarena had called it quits. "After nearly ten years together, Salvador and I have decided that the time has come to part ways. This split is amicable and filled with kindness, compassion and a genuine love for one another. As we go forward, each of us feels as if he has a cheerleader in our corner — a family member for life. We are happy. Thank you all for your well wishes and love," the "RuPaul's Drag Race" judge captioned a photo of himself and his ex.
The Nov. 26 episode of "Teen Mom OG" revealed that Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra separated earlier this year. (It's unclear whether or not they've since reconciled.) "Tyler has been frustrated in our marriage for a while and has been seeing a therapist," said Catelynn in a voiceover. "He decided he wanted to try living separately for a month. I was devastated at first, but now that I've started my own therapy, I'm more comfortable with the idea." Later in the episode, the pregnant reality star elaborated on their way of thinking during a chat with her beau and an MTV producer: "Basically all I want to share with the cameras is that me and you learned that we've been together for so long that it's like, 'Who are you as a person by yourself?' … [But] am I jumping of joy for it? No." Tyler chimed in, "I don't think any of us are. You took it kind of hard. The intention is not to bring up your anxiety or to make you feel any of your core wounds." Replied Catelynn, "But in that moment it did trigger me. It did bring up wounds. It was scary, it was sad, it was hurtful. Things that I've been through, like when people say they want to separate, they want to leave, it seriously does feel like somebody died." Another scene showed the expectant mom talking to a producer about the trial separation: "I even texted him and asked him, 'Is there somebody else?' He was like, 'What the f—. Do you think that I would cheat on you?' And I'm like, in my heart of hearts, no, but I was just so blindsided," she said. "I feel like the separation thing for me is going to be hard, but it'll be good for me in a way. Then I have time to just focus on me and [my daughter] Nova. It's always been Cate and Ty, Cate and Ty, Cate and Ty. Just giving each of us room to grow on our own."

On Nov. 26, TMZ reported that the actress will pay her ex $12K in spousal support each month as long as he doesn't break a "cohabitation clause" — he'll no longer receive spousal support if he lives with someone for five months within a one-year period. The former couple, who announced in February that they were separating after 13 years of marriage, have agreed to joint legal and physical custody of their 7-year-old son, Bear Blu.
Leona Lewis took to Instagram on Nov. 28 to confirm August reports that she and longtime love Dennis Jauch are engaged.

Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell have a code word for sex, her son, Oliver Hudson, said during a Nov. 27 appearance on E!'s "Busy Tonight." Said the actor, "I grew up in a naked house. My family, we were all naked. We used to get calls on the intercom, like, from my mom: 'We're snuggling now.' Snuggling meaning we're like, ya know, 'bop, bop, bop.' … The problem is we were, like, six. They didn't have to do this. So now 'snuggling' became having sex. So now it's like, 'We're snuggling,' trying to sort of say, 'Don't come in our bedroom.' We knew what was happening." But Oliver and his own wife, actress Erinn Bartlett, haven't adopted the code word for their own family, which includes three kids. "We don't do that. We just go for it," he told host Busy Philipps. "It's tough, you know, when you're parents. … Quickies are really a thing because the kids are downstairs and you only have a couple of minutes. She's in her closet getting changed, and as a man, I'm like, 'Heeey.' Literally, I go from human being to some other creature just [from] seeing nudity."
During a Nov. 26 appearance on "Good Morning Britain," Mel B dished on her relationship with Eddie Murphy, with whom she shares 11-year-old daughter Angel. "He always will be," she said when asked if the actor, whom she dated for nine months in 2006, is the "great love" of her life. "It was like a love story that didn't have a perfect ending," she continued, adding that she's the one who actually broke things off with Eddie. "Well, I went for a dinner party at his house, and it was very intense that attraction, and I left actually because it was a bit too much," Mel said. "But he's such a lovely person, he's all about family and he's very respectful and very old school and we courted for quite some time before anybody knew." When asked if she and Eddie might ever reconcile, the Spice Girl took the high road — but didn't exactly rule out anything. "His lady's got her second baby that she's expecting in like a few weeks," said the singer. "So I'm not gonna say anything else about that."
Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are in it for the long haul, People magazine reported on Nov. 19. "They're still madly in love and beyond inseparable," said a source. "Blake has wanted to take his time with marriage, but he is absolutely committed to Gwen. They both feel they've found their true partner in life and plan to be together forever. … He still thinks he is so lucky that she wants to be with him and thinks she is the most beautiful woman in the world." The insider adds that the pair are "very supportive" of each other "both personally and professionally" and that "they just glow when they're together." A few days later, "Entertainment Tonight" asked Blake about some lyrics in his collaboration with Gwen, the holiday song "You Make It Feel Like Christmas," which they co-wrote: "I never thought I'd find a love like this / But I found forever in that very first kiss," she sings. So is that lyric about Blake? "I would like to think so, come on," said the country crooner. "This is romance around here, of course!"
Hugh Jackman knew "very early" that wife Deborra-lee Furness was the one, he said during an appearance on the "Aussies in Hollywood with Jenny Cooney" podcast, which hit the Internet on Nov. 27. "I knew before Deb knew. Even when she tried to break up with me, I knew," he said. "She kind of [broke up with me], a little bit. Early on, three weeks in. I managed to talk her out of it, thank God. I'm a very indecisive person, Deb really knows this about me. I can count on my hand the amount of times in my life anything has felt that clear to me, and when it happens it's such a relief for me. … I just knew 100 percent. I even knew when she was trying to work out reasons to break up with me." Explained the actress, "I had just made my New Year's resolution. I said, 'I am not dating any actors, and definitely not under 30.' … I then meet my husband." Hugh was just 27 when they tied the knot in April 1996 following less than a year of dating after meeting on the set of the Australian TV show "Corelli." Said the actor, "The best experience I ever had, working with another actor [was with Deborra]. … This was before we were romantically involved or had any idea that Deborra was interested. There was a chemistry … and every time we had a scene together, it was unbelievable. Professionally, I've never had anything quite like that again."
On the Nov. 27 episode of the "Today" show, Catherine Zeta-Jones opened up about her marriage of nearly two decades to Michael Douglas. "First of all, I'm so happy that we've made it to be 20 years together. It's been great, but I think it's just unfathomable to me that you would be with one person for 18 years and things are not rosy every day," she said. "They're just not. … Both Michael and I have a very open relationship. When you have kids that didn't ask to be born into a world where it's scrutinized or looked into, you've got to be open and honest and share things that probably people at the drugstore wouldn't share over the counter." The Oscar winner also dished on the early 2018 sexual misconduct allegations against her husband (stemming from incidents that allegedly occurred in the '80s) during an interview with the U.K.'s The Sunday Times that hit the Internet on Nov. 25: "My children and I were profoundly devastated by those allegations. And I was torn about where my absolute morals lie," she said. "This woman came out of nowhere and accused my husband. I had a very big conversation with him, with the kids in the room, and said, 'Do you understand if more comes out…'" But Michael assured her that "there is no story here and that time will tell," and ultimately, she agreed that "there was nothing to back [the allegations] up at all." Finally, the "Chicago" star said that although there have been "ups and downs" in her marriage, "I don't throw the towel in very quickly on anything."
Ryan Murphy opened up about producing partner Brad Falchuk and his new bride, Gwyneth Paltrow, during a Nov. 26 interview with People magazine. "They're happier than ever," said the "American Horror Story" creator, who hosted his pals' engagement party in April. "They're both so great. If you met them, you would root for their love story. It's quite a love story, and I'm close to both of them from different periods in my life." Ryan added that he has a "particular ownership in their love story" because he introduced the pair in 2010 when Gwyneth made a guest appearance on "Glee," which Brad co-executive produced. "I'm very proud of that," he said. As for what would surprise people about the couple, the super-producer had this to say: "How family-oriented they are. … Family matters first to them. They both have two children from other marriages and they've really done, I think, an exemplary job in melding their families, and their children always come first. … They're beautiful parents."
On the Nov. 25 episode of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," Kim Kardashian West claimed that she was on ecstasy when she married first husband Damon Thomas in 2000 and when she made her 2003 sex tape with then-boyfriend Ray J. "I got married on ecstasy the first time. I did ecstasy once and I got married," she said, adding, "I did it again. I made a sex tape. Like, everything bad would happen. … Like, my jaw was shaking the whole time." But sources close to the singer-actor told TMZ as part of a Nov. 27 report that the pre-fame starlet wasn't drinking or on drugs (aside from marijuana) when she got intimate with Ray J as cameras rolled — which is the only reason why "her lip was quivering" on the tape. They add that Ray is "offended that Kim would suggest she did the sex tape because she was in a significantly altered state," as TMZ puts it. Sources close to Kim, however, say that she stands by her claims: "[They say] she did in fact take the drug before the tape was shot," TMZ writes, "and she has nothing to gain from lying about it at this point in her life."
In August, it seemed as though Future had reconciled with off-and-on girlfriend Brittni Mealy (pictured), the mother of his 5-year-old son, Prince. But in late November, the former dancer confirmed on her Instagram Story that she parted ways with the rapper for good. "I appreciate y'all stop tagging me and associating me with my son's father and whatever he got going on," she wrote after fans started directing her to the social media posts of Joie Chavis, who's expecting a baby boy with the rapper. "Let me make things crystal clear, I am not with him in no way and never will be again. I did my best and always loved unconditionally and been the sweetest girl I could be, even when I knew he didn't deserve it. This whole world calls me dumb, stupid, whatever but who cares? I have a genuine, unconditional, loving, forgiving heart. I am not mad, bitter, none of that. I left and finally begin to realize my worth (long overdue). Since I'm clearing things I never been no gold digger none of that never! Anytime anyone seen us together it's because it's what he wanted and begged for! Good luck to anyone who thinks he is going to change. Let me live in peace and be happy with a man who deserves and appreciates me!" (Though the exact timeline is murky, there have been reports that Future and Brittni were back on when he got Joie pregnant.) Meanwhile, yet another beauty — Eliza Reign — took to Instagram to allege in a since-deleted post that she's been hooking up with Future for years and that she too is expecting a baby with the rapper — against his wishes. She also claims that he's threatened her with physical violence if she moves forward with the pregnancy.
On Nov. 26, Pogues singer Shane MacGowan married his love of 32 years, journalist Victoria Mary Clarke (pictured together in 2012), at Copenhagen City Hall in Denmark in front of an intimate group of friends and family including Johnny Depp, who reportedly played guitar during the ceremony.

The Blast reported on Nov. 28 that Nicolas Cage's son, Weston Cage, and his second wife, Danielle, have finally settled their divorce. According to the webloid, she's getting sole legal and primary physical custody of their two kids, while he's been allowed visitation. The rocker has reportedly been ordered to pay $8,000 a month — half of the $16K "monthly gift" given to him by his Oscar-winning father — in "family support," which goes toward car payments, rent and health insurance for his ex and their kids. Starting in January 2019, his family support payments will be replaced by monthly child support to come directly from the payment Weston gets from his dad, who is under no legal obligation to continue forking over cash to his trouble-prone offspring, who reportedly married third wife Hila Aronian in May.
