Wilmer Valderama is one of Demi Lovato's main supports
As Demi Lovato navigates her recovery after overdosing this summer, there's one person she continues to keep very close — and that's her ex, Wilmer Valderrama. TMZ reports the two are in extremely close contact in the wake of Demi's stints in the hospital and in rehab. Wilmer reportedly visited her in both of those locations and the two continue to see each other frequently now that Demi's living part-time at a sober house and part-time at a private residence in Los Angeles. Through it all, Wilmer's reportedly been "a constant presence" in Demi's life — and an essential component of the support system her sobriety requires.
Is Blue Ivy Carter bound for a career in showbiz?
From scolding her grandma for not obeying camera rules at a Parisian theater to hilariously shushing her parents, Beyonce and JAY-Z, during a presentation at the Grammys, Blue Ivy Carter has already proven she respects the art of performance. That could be because she's quite the performer herself. In the new issue of Us Weekly, Bey's mom, Tina Knowles Lawson reveals her 6-year-old granddaughter definitely has the family stage presence DNA. Telling the mag, Blue's been performing "since birth, Tina notes that Blue "has decided yet" if she wants to become an entertainer like her mom, dad and aunt, Solange Knowles. "But whatever she wants to do," says Tina, "she will definitely be able to do it because she's good at a lot of things." After that pink Prince homage Blue wore to the Grammys in 2017, we're putting our money on a future in fashion …
John Mayer says he hasn't 'been a d— in many years' as Halsey shuts down dating rumors
John Mayer would like the world to stop living in the past when it comes to his reputation. The singer appears on the cover of the latest edition of Billboard, where he opens up about the new singles he's focusing on as well as what the magazine describes as "how he got a grip on fame." Part of that has to do with what the public thought about him at a time we have to assume was circa his "Jessica Simpson sexual napalm" comments of yore. (OK, yore was 2010.) "Some people still say, 'That guy's a d—.' And I go, 'Well, any of that data you're working off of is really old.' I mean, I can tell you for sure that I haven't been a d— in many years," he says. "That's a really outdated take … I probably had a run in my life where I wasn't aware that there was anything I couldn't have. And it made a monster out of me. And there's something very freeing about you can't." The cover story comes after John's pal, Halsey, shut down rumors the two may be dating with this sarcastic but right-on-target tweet: "I just had a ground breaking idea.," she wrote. "What if…we let female artists…have friends…without assuming that they are sleeping together?" she wrote. "I know I know. It's like, completely ambitious but like, imagine if we like, tried?"
Teresa Giudice has 'been counting' the days since she last had sex
Despite whispers that have come and gone suggesting Teresa Giudice's found other men to keep her company while her husband, Joe Giudice, completes his prison sentence for fraud, the "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star told Andy Cohen this week that she's been sex-free for quite while. "There have always been rumors that you and Joe were going to get divorced, and now he's been away and my poor girl has not had sex in a long time 'cause there's no conjugal visits," Andy commiserated with Teresa on "Watch What Happens Live" this week. "Two years and seven months," she replied, according to Us Weekly. "I'm counting." She also said she keeps the kissing on the DL when she visits her man in jail. "I just don't like doing that in front of other people," she said. "I don't like going there. I really don't like it. I don't like the room. I don't like all the people around me. I just don't like that." She may want to start getting more comfortable with it, though. Joe's slated to stay behind bars until March 2019 and if the court gets its way, he'll be deported back to Italy soon after his release.
Why haven't we seen or heard more about Jennifer Garner's new boyfriend?
Here's a valid question from the celeb news blog, Celebitchy: If Jennifer Garner is so "head over heels in love" with her new tech CEO boyfriend, John Miller, why hasn't she been seen in public with him and where is he on her social media posts? Jen's divorce with Ben Affleck was just finalized this week, but they settled the terms of the split back in August, and she and Ben have been on good terms for a year or so, with Jen even driving Ben to rehab and the pair getting together regularly to take their kids to church. From that perspective — not to mention, the fact that Ben's been openly and happily wading back into the dating pool — it seems logical that we would have heard more about Jen and John than we have since the end of October, when Us Weekly first reported on their relationship. As Celebitchy reminds us, the initial Us story breathlessly proclaimed things were moving quickly for Jen and John; could be that one or both members of the couple weren't feelin' the tabloid spectacle situation and they cooled things off. Speaking to "CBS Sunday Morning" in July, the "Peppermint" star admitted being in the spotlight can take a serious toll on a person's private life. "What I think I've learned is that the scrutiny in your private life puts a pressure to make something happen," she said at the time. "You feel a pressure to hurry up and get married, 'cause you think that'll end the — 'Are they engaged? Are they not?' And that's true in the reverse, as well. If you are — if you know, if there is any inkling of trouble, or if the tabloids decide there's trouble, it can create trouble."
Michael Douglas gets emotional about his family at Walk of Fame ceremony
Michael Douglas received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Tuesday, Nov. 6, and the honor sparked some serious emotion for the actor, who spent much of his acceptance speech talking about his dad, Kirk Douglas, his wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones and his son, Cameron Douglas. "Let's face it, this is a great honor and I'm not getting any younger. I'm going to enjoy it with my wife and my son and my caretakers and my great-great-grandkids," said Michael, 74 (via PopSugar). Turning to Catherine, he added: "I'm grateful for your support and your love and your patience," before proudly announcing, "By the way, in another week we are celebrating our 18th anniversary, so thank you for the best 18 years of my life, sweetheart!" He also shouted out his father. "My dad is here. In a month, Kirk will be 102 years old!" he marveled. "It means so much to me, Dad, that you're here today. Thank you for your advice, inspiration, and I'll say it simply and with all my heart: I'm so proud to be your son."
John Legend and Chrissy Teigen dish on their first parent-teacher conference at Luna's pre-school
"First parent/teacher conference!" That's how an excited Chrissy Teigen captioned a recent photo on Twitter that showed her husband, John Legend, sitting in a tiny chair in the waiting area of their daughter, Luna Stephens' school. Asked how the conference went a few days later at the WSJ Magazine Innovator Awards, he told ET his experience was no different than that of any parent in a similar situation. "It's the same as anybody else," the singer said. "We just sit there and talk about kids' stuff … But pre-school teachers have a lot of experience with that age-range so they can give you good advice." Chrissy, who was also at the event where her husband was later honored with the Entertainer Innovator award, agreed. "It's like anybody else… and we know her teachers well and we love them," she gushed. "You just go in and we have the same gripes as anybody else, like, 'How do we deal with a new baby and her?' And it's kind of like a little therapy session because at two-and-a-half, there's not a lot to tell us." Chrissy and John are also parents to a son, Miles, whose birth they announced in mid-May.

Nearly 11 years after its debut on AMC, "Breaking Bad" is poised to make a comeback on the big screen.

Tyga faces a new round of six-figure money woes
Tyga's long history of financial problems and lawsuits is becoming increasingly international. After being sued earlier this year by concert promoters in Abu Dhabi for allegedly blowing off a handful of scheduled gigs in the Middle East, the rapper is now also facing legal action from a marketing company based in Canada. The Blast reports Providr is trying to get a $145, 070 default judgment recognized in California so they can collect money a court agreed Tyga owed them after he allegedly failed to give them full access to all his social media accounts. The company had reportedly signed a contract with Tyga in which they paid him for the rights to use online activity stemming from his Facebook account as a means of getting clicks for Provdr's clients and the products they're helping them promote. The company claims it gave Tyga a $200,000 cash advance on the deal but he never gave them the access they required to fulfill his end of the contract.
Lindsay Lohan's rep puts out a Facebook call for endorsement opportunities for Lindsay
Lindsay Lohan may want to reconsider her team's tactics. According to Page Six, a rep for Lindsay hit up members on a Facebook group for publicists and marketing execs on Tuesday, Nov. 7, looking for brand "endorsement opportunities" for Lindsay. "… Acceptable brands include: fashion, beauty, car, lifestyle, CPG, fitness/lifestyle, food/drinks, entertainment/media, tech," the rep wrote, adding, "Must have a substantial budget." Among the replies were questions about the definition of "a substantial budget." Lindsay's largely stayed away from Hollywood in the last few years, opting instead to focus on opening Lohan Nightclub in Athens, Greece, and Lohan Beach House in Mykonos. The latter served as the location for an MTV docuseries about Lindsay and the club. More recently, there was an incident involving some vigilante-style attempt to block a family from trafficking its children, which they assured her they were not doing shortly before the mother decked Lindsay for trying to take her son.
