Damian Hurley does his best Elizabeth Hurley modeling impression
Twinning much?! Elizabeth Hurley's 17-year-old son, Damian Hurley, proved his modeling skills are on par with those of his equally gorgeous mom this week when he shared an Instagram Story post of himself mimicking a pose his mom gave for a previous Instagram pic. "Another one," he wrote across the sultry image. According to The Sun, Damian was riffing on recent observations that he's started to look just like Liz — chatter that surfaced courtesy of his recent fashion nod to the iconic Versace safety pin dress his mom, 54, wore years ago. "I rather think I've simply been blessed with a child whose personality gels with mine," Liz once told You magazine. "Friends who have several children always admit, although they love them all equally, inevitably there's one whose personality mirrors their own and they 'get' each other better. It's definitely nature not nurture." Damian, who signed with the agency Tess Management last year, according to the Daily Mail, is also the son of Steve Bing.

The birthday girl, who turns 22 on Saturday, Aug. 10, has only upped the extravagance factor from there.

Why Taylor Swift's fans think she might be engaged …
With a forthcoming album called "Lover" in the midst of a nearly three-year-long relationship with actor Joe Alwyn, could Taylor Swift's next step be a visit to the altar? Some fans seem to think so. This week, Swifties started posting in earnest about the possibility their musical idol could be engaged. The theory popped up after Vogue previewed lyrics from the title track of the singer's new album. "My heart's been borrowed and yours has been blue / All's well that ends well to end up with you," Taylor sings. E!

Unfortunately for the wedding bell-clamoring Swiftie masses, E! has confirmed Taylor is not engaged. Instead, she's getting ready to go back in promo mode for "Lover," which drops Aug. 23.
Eva Longoria reveals which of her famous friends was her drunkest wedding guest
Just in time for the weekend, Eva Longoria has dished on the juicy details to a question we didn't know we needed the answer to: Who was the drunkest famous guest at her 2016 wedding to Jose Baston? It was, of course, Andy Cohen on "Watch What Happens Live" who asked the question. The answer? "It was a toss between Ricky Martin and Victoria [Beckham]!" Eva admitted, according to ET. Though she didn't give up much in the way of their drunken behavior, she did tell Hello magazine shortly after the wedding Victoria played a large part in the entire wedding weekend. "I asked Victoria to [design] my dress because I wanted it to be special and made with love, and I knew that Victoria would make it with love," she explained. "Victoria was one of my witnesses too — she signed the paper that says I was here — so it was a Victoria Beckham weekend! She was the best, sweetest person to have there on this day. She's one of my best friends so for her to be there was so special."
The Jonas Brothers talk touring with wives, kids: 'It's an army!'
From the day the Jonas Brothers kicked off their Happiness Begins tour in Miami on Wednesday, Aug. 8, it was clear this tour would be different from all the others they've embarked on over the course of the past 15 years. That's because this time, Joe Jonas, Nick Jonas and Kevin Jonas are all family guys now that Joe's married to "Game of Thrones" star Sophie Turner, Nick Jonas is married to "Quantico's" Priyanka Chopra and Kevin Jonas, who said "I do" to Danielle Jonas back in 2009, is now a father of two little girls, Alena, 5, and Valentina, 2. For their Miami date, all the wives and kids — plus more family members — were there to support the brothers. "It's an army," Kevin told ET. Nick added that their parents and brother, Frankie were also "in town" for the show, along with "extended family." "The VIP section is going to be pouring over," Joe admitted. While Sophie and Priyanka are clearly enjoying their new role as wives — they've taken to calling themselves the "J sisters" — Kevin's cheering section might be the most adorable of the group. "Yesterday my girls showed up for the first time seeing the backstage and getting some special stuff for the road and they were in the best mood I think they've ever been, so I am just beyond excited to have them see this for the first time tonight," said the proud dad. "It's different, but we're enjoying every single moment." The whole Jonas extended family was also on hand when the Jonas Brothers premiered their new documentary, "Chasing Happiness," in June. Their tour runs through Oct. 20.

Richard Gere delivers supplies by boat to ship full of stranded migrants
During a visit to Italy this week, Richard Gere learned a Spanish charity-operated ship carrying 121 migrants rescued their from war-torn native lands has been stuck in international waters for over a week because neither Italy nor Malta will allow it into their ports. According to the AP (via Page Six), Gere, who has a long history of human rights advocacy work, immediately called the charity, Open Arms, to find out how he could help. Within two days, he was loading food and other badly needed supplies onto a boat on the Italian island of Lampedusa. He then transported the supplies via boat to the Open Arms ship, where he unloaded it and spoke with shaken Libyan migrants. One of the people he spoke with, the AP reported, was a man and his baby. Like so many others in their situation, they had attempted to flee Libya on a smuggling boat that was not safe for sea travel. They were rescued by Open Arms, but now their future in uncertain again. Italy and Malta reportedly want other countries in Europe to take in more migrants to mitigate those countries' burdens. "The most important thing for these people here is to be able to get to a free port, to get off the boat, to get on land and start a new life," Gere told the AP. "Please support us here on Open Arms and help these people, our brothers and sisters," he added. Despite Open Arms' plea to Europe that a deal be reached so those aboard the ship may, as Gere put it, start their new lives, no agreement has been reached. The AP reports some 840 people have already died this year while trying to flee North Africa and settle in Europe, where they hope to build safer, better lives.
Kevin Costner doesn't think Meghan Markle will — or should — return to acting
When it comes to casting leading ladies in Hollywood going forward, Kevin Costner thinks producers would be wise to give up on the idea of an acting comeback for Duchess Meghan. Kevin stopped by the British show "Lorraine" on Friday, Aug. 9, where he explained why he doesn't see the "Suits" star rekindling her love affair with the silver screen now that she's married to Prince Harry. "Why? Because if you're Harry — he seems like a great guy — it's like … that's why I'm not married to an actress. I don't want to see my wife kissing somebody," he quipped, according to the Daily Mail. "I'm like, on Harry's side!" Kevin went on to suggest there's enough pressure on someone who's getting married, let alone marrying into the royal family, that it would dampen anyone's interest in the celebrity status that often comes with a successful Hollywood career. "I don't want to be a person that's ever limiting somebody, but there's so much thought that goes into taking on, No.1 being a wife, and then being in this circle that I don't even understand, royalty, it's a unique spot," he said. "I think we watch it from across an ocean and sometimes we don't understand exactly what's going on. She's had enough attention for a lifetime now in a year." "The Bodyguard" alum also confirmed Harry's mom, Princess Diana, was considered as a strong possible lead for the sequel to the Whitney Houston film back in the '90s.

pHoward Stern and his wife, Beth Stern, have added one more kitten to their ever-expanding litter — and according to Page Six, this one, "Helen Stern," is learning to become a therapy cat. Earlier this year, when Howard posed with kitten's for his "softer side" Rolling Stone cover, it was because of Beth, who spends much of her time fostering furry pals in the couple's sprawling New York home and raising funds for various pet adoption charities, including her own. Speaking to Rolling Stone, Beth admitted the two have fostered more than 900 cats. And Howard plays a role besides footing the bill. "He grooms them every morning. He talks to them," she said at the time. "They're our family members. We don't have children together. So they are literally our children."
