Did the 'Fuller House' cast reference Lori Loughlin's scandal in their Kids' Choice Awards speech?
A thinly veiled reference to Lori Loughlin's role in the college admissions scandal may have been lurking in the acceptance speech given by "Fuller House" cast members, Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber, at the Kids' Choice Awards over the weekend. "You have been laughing alongside our family for four seasons and this family has a lot of heart," Andrea began after the series was named Favorite Funny TV Show, according to Page Six. Bure then chimed in: "And where there's a lot of heart, there's a lot of love. And a loving family sticks together no matter what. They stick together through the hard times, they support each other, they encourage one another, they pray for each other and they stand by their side no matter how tough it gets. And a loving family that also sticks together also celebrates the really good times." Sweetin then took over, wrapping things up with, "You've stuck with us for 30 years and we love you all so much. We promise the fifth and final season is gonna be amazing." The move may have been driven by concern for ratings ahead of the last season, which will reportedly have Lori — who's played Aunt Becky in both the original and rebooted versions of the show — written out. She and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, are due in federal court next month to face charges they paid $500,000 to get their daughters into U.S.C. as athletes — in sports they have no experience with. Their daughter, Olivia Jade, who lost a slew of promotional deals after the scandal went public, reportedly blames her parents for destroying her career
Paul Rudd reveals his anti-aging secret
From the adorable selfies to Alicia Silverstone's admission that her "Clueless" heartthrob, Paul Rudd, still knows how to make her "swoon," there were plenty of things to love about the movie's cast reunion that took place at the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo that took place over the weekend. One of our favorite takeaways, however, was the chatter around Paul's seemingly ageless looks. The star turns 50 next month, sparking his younger costars to rib him a bit during their panel ("they had to knock on Paul's trailer an hour early because he had to finish sucking the lifeblood out of babies," joked Breckin Meyer, who played Travis). Turns out Breckin wasn't too far off-base on the devlish tip. "I'm 80 years old on the inside," Paul quipped, according to the Chicago Tribune. "In here, pure darkness — and a little moisturizer."

Justin Bieber has been sleeping in a hyperbaric oxygen chamber
As he continues taking a break from music, Justin Bieber remains focused on his health — and according to The Blast, he's getting an assist from a Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. The singer's wife, Hailey Bieber, recently shared a video that showed Justin breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized tube in what looks like the couple's suite at the Montage hotel in the Los Angeles area. According to the Mayo Clinic, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is approved to treat a wide variety of ailments ranging from depression, which Justin's been battling, to cancer, diabetes and injury-related issues, by allowing the lungs to take in more oxygen than usual. The extra oxygen then gets used by the blood to promote healing. The Blast cites a base cost of at least $10,000 for one of the tubes.

Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Jen Harley reunite to take their daughter to a baby shower
Nearly three months after "Jersey Shore" star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro filed a police report for battery against his then-girlfriend, Jen Harley, the former couple seems to be putting their differences aside for the sake of their 11-month-old daughter, Ariana. On Sunday, March 24, Jen shared a video on her Instagram Stories showing her with Ronnie and their daughter at what looks like a baby shower, according to Page Six. It was unclear from the posts if the two are officially back together or were just making good on their promise to co-parent Ariana, but the tab described both Jen and Ronnie "laughing and smiling" while playing with the little girl. The post comes on the heels of Ronnie's admission that he recently went to rehab for help with his alcohol abuse and depression. "I wanted to be a better person, a better father for my daughter," he explained at the time.
Sandra Bullock lists her sprawling Georgia estate for $6.5M
Sandra Bullock has put her massive Tybee Island estate on the market for $6.5 million via Sotheby's. TMZ reports the star has been rooted with her kids on the West Coast in recent years and isn't likely to spend enough time in Georgia for it to make sense to hold onto the pad. Situated on a three-acre patch of oceanfront property with gorgeous views, the 3,360 square-foot main house boasts private beach access, a pool, basketball court and a home gym. The guest house, meanwhile, clocks in at 2,848 square feet and comes complete with a game room. In addition to her Southern California real estate, Sandra also reportedly owns homes in and around New York City, Austin, New Orleans and Jackson Hole, Wyoming — where she spent New Year's Eve rocking out on a dance floor with Jennifer Aniston, who happened to be in town at the same time.
Mel B claims she hooked up with her Spice Girls bandmate way back when
Turns out Scary Spice and Ginger Spice were, at least briefly, more than just good pals. Speaking to Piers Morgan for one of his "Life Stories" episodes, Mel B was pressed about whether she'd ever slept with her Spice Girls bandmate, Geri Halliwell. Eventually, she capitulated and said she had. "We were best friends. It just happened," she told Piers, according to the Daily Mail. "She is going to hate me for this because she is all posh in her country house and her husband, but it's a fact. It just happened and we just giggled at it and that was it. She had great boobs," Mel added. It wasn't long before she realized she'd opened a potential can of worms, saying both Geri and her husband, Christian Horner "are going to kill me," before acknowledging Geri would likely be hit with questions about the claim. "Hopefully when Geri gets asked that, which hopefully she will after this, she won't deny it, because it was just a thing, a fun thing," Mel said. Though it's worth taking most news from British tab The Sun with a large grain of salt, the outlet later reported Mel called Geri to make sure they could remain on good terms given their reunion tour plans. "The tour is just two months away they don't want anything jeopardizing it, but there were real fears this would upset Geri's husband and cause serious issues," a source is quoted as having told the tab. Their tour kicks off in May.
Lil Wayne's handwritten lyric book from 1999 hits the market for $250k
Attention, old school-Lil Wayne fans: TMZ reports a new piece of Weezy history is up for sale through the autograph and memorabilia dealer, Moments In Time. Seems someone who worked at a car dealership that came into possession of a car previously owned by Cash Money Records dug up a notebook full of Lil Wayne's handwritten lyrics circa 1999. He was 17 and a member of the New Orleans rap group Hot Boys at the time, though he was already starting to prove his star was on the rise, making an early name for himself in the local hip-hop community. The book was discovered in the car before Hurricane Katrina hit the Big Easy in 2005 and, according to the website, the seller had stored it in his garage prior to evacuating. When he returned, most of his belongings had been destroyed but the notebook survived, having only been damaged marginally by water. The book, which includes lyrics for songs like "We On Fire" and "I Feel," is going for $250,000.
Josiah Duggar's wife, Lauren, thanks fans for support after miscarriage
Josiah Duggar's wife, Lauren, is still thinking about the miscarriage she suffered in October shortly after tying the knot. She's also still grateful for the feedback she and Josiah have had about their loss over the past few months. In an Instagram post that showed a photo from their wedding sitting on a piano, Lauren, 19, sent a note to her friends and followers to let them know how they'd helped the couple get through the situation. "I just want to thank each and everyone of you for your prayers, support, and for all you Mama's out there for sharing your angel baby stories," she wrote on Sunday, March 24. "It's easy to share those happy times in our lives, but sharing something hard, like losing a baby can be like putting salt to a wound. I know by y'all sharing your stories it has not only helped me, but many other women who have gone through the same trials," she continued. "'He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds,'" she added, quoting the Bible (via Us Weekly). The couple got candid about their experience last month in a video Josiah said they shared because "nobody really talks about" miscarriage" and "we just wanted to let y'all know that you're not alone." Josiah, 22, and Lauren got engaged last spring; they married in June.
