Khloe Kardashian hints she has yet to name her 2-month-old son
It looks like Khloe Kardashian may not have named her 2-month-old son yet. Over the weekend, "The Kardashians" star used her Instagram Stories to share a handful of cute photos and videos from the family's arts and crafts-focused "Cousin Halloween party" her 4-year-old daughter, True, attended. One video showed True adorably rocking out to "The Addams Family" theme-song beside a gingerbread haunted house. One side of the spooky sweet treat featured Khloe's name, True's name and the word "Baby," leading some fans to wonder if Khloe's still unsettled on what to call the baby boy, whom she welcomed with ex Tristan Thompson via surrogate earlier this year. "Thank you so much auntie @kourtneykardash and uncle @travisbarker," she captioned the video, according to Entertainment Tonight. "Memories to last a lifetime for the kiddos." Khloe's previously said she wants to pick a name that starts with T for her son, so it matches True's name. But that's as much info as she's given up about the little guy's moniker. (In "The Kardashians" episode that covered her bringing her baby boy home from the hospital, she joked about calling him "no-name Johnson.") Khloe's not the only one in her family who's apparently taking her time with the baby name deliberation process, either. Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott welcomed a baby boy on Feb. 2. After announcing his name was Wolf, Kylie said on social media that Wolf didn't suit him and they were considering other options. She has yet to reveal what, if anything, the couple eventually settled on.

Kanye West to buy social media platform Parler amid backlash over antisemitic tweet
Kanye West is on track to acquire Parler, an alt-right social media platform popular among Donald Trump loyalists, QAnon supporters and right-wing groups involved in the Jan. 6 riots, the site's parent company announced on Monday (Oct. 17). "In a world where conservative opinions are considered to be controversial we have to make sure we have the right to freely express ourselves," said the rapper and Yeezy designer in a press release via Parler, which calls itself an "uncancelable free speech platform," according to the New York Times. The release said Kanye (now legally "Ye"), "will never have to fear being removed from social media again" after the rapper's Twitter and Instagram accounts were temporarily restricted last week over antisemitic comments. Kanye's controversial remarks haven't been limited to social media this month, though. He's also come under fire for wearing a shirt emblazoned with the words "White Lives Matter," a phrase adopted by white supremacists in response to the Black Lives Matter movement, while hanging out with conservative commentator Candace Owens, who was also wearing the shirt. (Fun fact: Candace is married to Parler CEO, George Farmer.) The "White Lives Matter" tee turned out to be part of Kanye's new Yeezy line and was modeled at his runway show at Paris Fashion Week. Parler's parent company, Parlement Technologies, has not disclosed the terms of the deal, but said it should be finalized by the end of the year.
Drew Barrymore says sex isn't a priority right now
Drew Barrymore is clarifying her recent comments about having abstained from sex "for years." In a blog post published over the weekend, the actor-turned-talk-show host revealed a stranger recently said she thought Drew "hates sex," seemingly because of the star's admission on her show. Drew — who shares daughters Frankie and Olive with ex Will Kopelman — explained on her blog that she's simply been more focused on loving her kids and herself since the 2016 split. "I have very different feelings about intimacy than I did growing up," writes the former child star. "I did not have role model parents and I engaged with people in grown up ways since a tender age! I was looking for companionship! Validation! Excitement! Pleasure! Hedonism! Fun! And adventures!! … I lived a very rich, full life. However, after two kids and a separation from their father that has made me cautious, I have had the pleasure of shifting my focus when it comes to love for myself and my two daughters," she continues. Recalling how her therapist helped her understand that "sex is not love," it's "the expression of love," Drew writes: "And since entering life as a single mom, I have not been able to have an intimate relationship. I have had the honor and a pleasure to actually work on myself and learn what parenting is, again something I was not exactly clear on growing up …" Today, Drew says she's raising her girls to be "empowered and to love themselves and to realize that we live in an age where the images and messages … contradict what I have come to believe intimacy is," which she defines as, "something that makes you feel good about yourself!" Drew concludes that she's "just in a completely different place in my life and maybe in the near future I will get into a relationship… but it simply hasn't been my priority." Celibacy has also made sense for Drew while she mourns "the loss of a nuclear family that I swore I would have for my daughters" and figures out "our new normal of a blended family," she writes. In the end, Drew says her "wish" is that people can "find out what makes them feel good about themselves and seek that," while also learning "what makes them feel bad about themselves" so they can "abstain from inviting in emotions that do not lead to self respect."
Solange Knowles likes tweet alleging Bill Murray put his hands in her hair
It seems Solange Knowles may have experienced Bill Murray's alleged penchant for inappropriate behavior firsthand, like Seth Green, Geena Davis and others who've worked with the comic. TV writer and producer Judnick Mayard recently tweeted that after Solange performed her hit, "Don't Touch My Hair" on "Saturday Night Live" on Nov. 5, 2016, he saw Bill, who made an appearance on the episode, "put both his hands into Solange's scalp after asking her three times if her hair was a wig or not." He added, "She had just finished performing that song on SNL when he did it. that's the audacity of whiteness." Screenshots captured by ET show Solange liked the tweet over the weekend, seemingly confirming Judnick's story. The allegation is one of many similar claims made about Bill, 72, in recent weeks. In an appearance on Youtube's "Good Mythical Morning," last week, Seth Green said that when he was 9 and Bill was 31, the older actor dangled him by the ankles over a trash can while telling him "trash goes in the trash" before dumping him in the cannister in the "SNL" green room. Seth's story surfaced shortly after Geena Davis described having been bullied by Bill and forced to massage him on the set of a film in the '90s. And earlier this month, Puck reported Bill paid a $100,000 settlement to a much younger coworker who claimed he straddled her and forcefully kissed her without her consent on the set of "Being Mortal."
Andy Cohen says he wants Anderson Cooper to join Tinder with him
Andy Cohen's wading back into the dating pool and he wants to enlist Anderson Cooper as a co-pilot. The Bravo star opened up about his love life to Hoda Kotb, Savannah Guthrie and fans at BravoCon 2022 over the weekend when he was asked if he's "seeing anybody," according to People. "I'm not, but Daddy needs help," joked the father of two. "Now I'm looking. I'm on Raya, I'm on Tinder, now I'm ready to go," he said, adding, "I want Anderson to join Tinder, too." Andy and his longtime pal Anderson have bonded over becoming dads since Andy welcomed his son Benjamin three years ago and Anderson announced the birth of his first son, Wyatt, in 2020. Andy now also has a 5-month-old daughter, Lucy, while Anderson shares 8-month-old Sebastian with his ex, Benjamin Maisiani. Speaking to People back in July, Andy admitted that while he's gone on some dates, being a single dad was "taking up noise in my mind" since he now has to consider when and how to introduce a new beau to his kids.
Jamie Oliver details lifelong dyslexia struggle
Jamie Oliver has written more than 20 books about cooking — without ever having "physically written a word" because of his dyslexia, he shared on Instagram over the weekend. The celebrity chef opened up about his learning order in a lengthy post that detailed his "constant battle … with words and reading" and shared some of the ways he's overcome the challenge. "In the old days at school it made me very frustrated and resentful about school as an institution and over the years i've come to terms with not learning the same way as most people not as a failure but an opportunity. An opportunity to look at things very differently …," Jamie wrote. He went on to say he now appreciates the value of learning through "failures" after struggling through school, where he hated "words and reading with a passion." Now 46, Jamie said he's written 26 books and is "apparently one of the most published authors on the planet," though he's "never ever physically written a word." Instead, he said he used dictaphones to write cookbooks, and, later, editors. "It's more complicated than that because i'm easily distracted and my working day has to be structured in a way that i'm kept invigorated," added Jamie, who also struggles with ADHD. "But that's within our gift to try and manage our time best for us to thrive and find what ever balance we are looking for right ?!" He closed by returning to the idea of "the currency of failure," writing, "if our relationship around failure is managed properly, it is the key to a much happier, healthier future." Added the chef: "If you personally struggle with anything, maybe look at it differently and take a different approach. … Everyone struggles, everyone has a story that can be used to propel them forward or pull them back and i believe it's how you choose to look at it that defines which path you take."
Hailey Bieber hugs Selena Gomez at gala after saying there's no bad blood between them
After denying rumors of a feud with Selena Gomez on the "Call Her Daddy" podcast, Hailey Bieber doubled down on her remarks at the Academy Museum Gala in Los Angeles on Saturday (Oct. 15), by hanging out with the singer. Photographer Tyrell Hampton snapped and shared photos of the stars at the bash, including one in which the two can be seen smiling and hugging. On her podcast appearance, Hailey was asked about the much-debated timeline of her relationship with her now-husband, Justin Bieber, and Selena's previous romance with Justin. According to Hailey, her relationship with Justin became romantic again in 2018 after he and Selena "closed a chapter" on their years-long romance. "[I] period, point blank … was never in a relationship with him when he was with anybody," Hailey said on the show. "The perpetuation, comes from the misperception, 'Oh, you stole him,'" she said. "It comes from the fact that they wished he had ended up with someone else and that's fine. You can wish that all you want but that's just not the case … If we have moved on, why can't you?"
