Khloe Kardashian shares yet another cryptic post about love
Khloe Kardashian seems to be rehashing some painful memories. In a quote attributed only to "7:18 p.m." on Instagram on Tuesday, April 23, the single mom shared what sounded like a message aimed at her ex, Tristan Thompson, who got the heave-ho from Khloe after he allegedly cheated on her with Jordyn Woods in February. "The saddest thing about our story is that we could have made it work," she wrote (via Us Weekly). "If you cared about me like I cared about you, you would have fought for me. But you didn't. So it's clear, I was right every time that I told you that I loved you more. You always denied it and said you loved me more, but I guess now we know." Khloe and Tristan put their problems aside for the sake of their daughter, True's first birthday recently. But an insider tells Us that little has changed for the Cavaliers star now that he's a bachelor again. "Tristan has been continuing to go out and has been partying with friends," said the source. "He's been hooking up with other girls, and whenever he's out, he's had Instagram models … around him. That's just the lifestyle that he lives."

Gwyneth Paltrow jokes that she and RDJ are the 'grandparents' of the Marvel universe
Not bad for a "Marvel grandma!" After showing off her flawless complexion as she headed to the premiere for "Avengers: Endgame" this week, Gwyneth Paltrow, 46, hit the red carpet, where she reflected on playing Pepper Potts to Robert Downey, Jr.'s "Iron Man" for more than a decade. "I think when we did [the first] 'Iron Man,' Marvel had no idea what it would be, and this level of success it would have, and all the other movies that would come out of it, so it's pretty cool," she told ET. "I mean yeah, we kind of feel like the parents or grandparents at this point, but it's pretty awesome." Asked if that means she won't return should there be a follow-up feature, Gwyneth joked. "I thought we were done? Look, I would always [come back] if they needed me, but I think, you know, the movie is called 'Endgame.'" She added: "I feel like maybe we're off to other Marvel pastures, I don't really know, they don't tell me anything. And all the scripts are redacted and everything, so it's a very secret process." "Avengers: Endgame" hits theaters this Friday.
Nicole Kidman's parenting rules include no phones, Instagram
As the cast of "Big Little Lies" prepares for the second season's premiere on HBO on June 9, Nicole Kidman is reflecting on the not-so-red-carpet-focused side of her life: her family. In the new edition of Vanity Fair, Nicole, 51, explains that she and her husband Keith Urban try to enjoy a low-key life with their kids in Nashville as much as possible. She says she also has made some parenting choices that make her "unpopular" with her daughters, Sunday, 10, and Faith, 8. "They don't have a phone and I don't allow them to have an Instagram. I try to keep some sort of boundaries," Nicole explains. Meanwhile, Nicole, whose "Big Little Lies" character suffers abuse at the hands of her husband, says she's been carefully starting to show Sunday some aspects of the world in 2019 that may be hard to perceive. "I was talking to Sunday about there being little girls in different parts of this world who don't own their bodies. A man owns their body. Her eyes were like, 'What?'" she recalls. "We're trying to educate about those things. But it's giving the information gently, and then guiding."

"Everyone was drinking champagne and tequila and 'cheers'-ed Gigi with birthday shots after she blew out her candles on the cake. Gigi had a huge smile on her face and looked so excited to be celebrating," the insider recalled. The birthday girl's sister, Bella Hadid, was also on hand for the fun. Calling Gigi and Bella "the life of the party," the source added that the two even got a group dance in with their mom, Yolanda.

Gigi and Taylor also reportedly spent some time catching up after sharing what the source called "a huge, long hug."
Jack Osbourne spoke with Selma Blair about her MS diagnosis
In recent months, Selma Blair's been increasingly open when it comes to speaking publicly about multiple sclerosis, which she was diagnosed with last fall. So perhaps it's no surprise she also made time to discuss the disease with Jack Osbourne, who announced seven years ago that he suffers from MS. "I get a lot out of talking to people in kind of the same spot as me. I find it kind of comforting knowing you're not alone. That was really the crux of the conversation I had with Selma," Jack recently told People. He also said the two shared information about how they've dealt with complications and the physical setbacks. "MS is so different with everyone," Jack said. "I have the same disease she does but we are affected completely different by it. We spoke about what I do, my regimen. The things I've done in the past with it."

Blac Chyna shares an open letter about 'working to be [her] best' self
Three years after her relationship with Rob Kardashian shifted her status firmly into the "celebrity" category, for better or worse, Blac Chyna is looking to make a fresh start. She posted an open letter to fans this week, acknowledging some of her wrongdoing from the past, taking issue with how she's been treated in some cases and promising to make positive changes going forward. "Over the last couple of years, you guys have been given a perspective of who I am from the media and people closest to me. I've been Bullied, Humiliated, Manipulated, and Discredit as a mom!" Chyna said in the Instagram post. "Looking Back at A lot of my actions, I'm reflecting and realizing that confusion is a serious thing. Of course I'm not proud of some of the pain that I have caused, and I am working to be the best me," she continued. "Blac Chyna doesn't define Angela White as a person. At 30, I am overwhelmed with the blessings I have. Being A mother of two amazing children. I don't talk on things often, but I promise to give you guys more of me. Angela White Perspective." Before signing off, she thanked readers "for years of endless love," telling fans, "Your support for me is a blessing!" The letter comes on the heels of an apparent cease fire between Chyna and Rob, at least with regard to their daughter, whose custody they have agreed to share in the interest of being better co-parents. Though she's still duking it out in court with members of his family, it seems clear the former reality star is ready to turn over a new proverbial leaf. As she captioned the post: "Growth is painful. Change is painful. But, nothing is as painful as being where you do not belong! #newbeginnings"

Ed Sheeran ordered to remove massive, Cherry Seaborn-themed sign on his secret pub
Ed Sheeran has to rein the homage to his wife he has displayed on the grounds of their home in Suffolk, England. The Daily Mail reports planning officers paid the singer a visit recently and decided the 16-foot sign he has hanging from the historic barn he renovated into a secret pub was "unauthorized" in the original construction work approval. The sign bears the name of Ed's at-home pub, "The Lancaster Lock," named in honor of his wife, Cherry Lancaster Seaborn. It seems there's also a new sauna near Ed's "wildlife pond" that has to go. According to the Mail, the visit from authorities was sparked by neighbors who were worried the six-figure "pond" was being used for swimming, as it now features a jetty and two sets of steps. Officials said they found no evidence it was being used for reaction.
Jordyn Woods references Tristan Thompson scandal in festival panel discussion
Jordyn Woods is still in the spotlight in the wake of her relationship-ending blow-up with the Kardashians. According to JustJared, Kylie Jenner's former best pal is currently in Nigeria where she recently spoke on a panel about the experience of being attacked online, presumably for allegedly hooking up with Khloe Kardashian's now ex-boyfriend, Tristan Thompson. "My little sister was bullied in school and I wanted to show her that I was bullied by the world," Jordyn reportedly said at one point during the panel, referencing the Tristan incident for the first time since she appeared on "Red Table Talk." "I understood for the first time what it's like being a black woman," she continued, "… in a just society, how we can be so disrespected and nobody can really understand to that extent until you have to live it." Last month, The Blast reported last month that the beauty entrepreneur was headed to London and the Middle East to discuss potential business deals.
