Sisterly Love

Riley Keough explains 'maternal' feelings for twin 9-year-old half-sisters

Riley Keough stars as a mysterious actress named Misty who plops into the intense drama between her boyfriend (Caleb Landry Jones's Ethan) and his estranged sister (Abbey Lee's Alice) in the poetic thriller "Welcome the Stranger," which is now available to stream online.

Family drama may be nothing new to the 28-year-old beauty, the daughter of Lisa Marie Presley and granddaughter of Elvis and Priscilla Presley. But unlike the characters at the center of "Welcome the Stranger," there's no estrangement between Riley and her siblings, even though her twin half-sisters, who turn 10 in October, are nearly two decades younger.

"We're really close," Lisa Marie's daughter with first husband Danny Keough told Wonderwall.com. "It's a funny relationship because it feels more like I'm their aunt or something because I'm so much older. They feel like my sisters, of course, but I have a brother who's closer to my age and we grew up together, so that's kind of what I associate as a sibling: someone you grow up with."

"But they're like my little babies," Riley continued of Harper Vivienne Ann and Finley Aaron Love, whom Lisa Marie welcomed in 2008 with then-husband Michael Lockwood.

(The former couple temporarily lost custody of their daughters during their bitter divorce battle. The girls spent nearly a year between mid-2016 and early 2017 living with their grandmother after Lisa Marie alleged that she found "inappropriate photos" on Michael's computer — and then went to rehab.)

"They're my nieces," Riley joked of Harper and Finley. "No, they're definitely my sisters, and we're very, very, very close, but it's a funny one because I'm more maternal to them whereas my brother and I are sort of more equal. I was a grownup for their whole lives, so it's more of, like, a caretaker relationship as opposed to an equals kind of thing being a similar age."

"I love watching movies with them," she said of the girls. "Actually, that's one of my favorite things to do. They love movies. I love watching movies with them and playing with them. I just like talking to them."

"I like hanging out with kids," continued the actress. "I prefer hanging out with kids to adults."

So far, the kiddos have only watched two of their big sister's movies: "Logan Lucky," which Riley called "the most PG thing I've ever done," and "Mad Max: Fury Road."

"We had to fast-forward some parts," she said of the 2015 action flick, in which she portrayed one of the five enslaved wives of the villainous Immortan Joe. "It's very feminist, so it was an interesting conversation, but basically I just said, 'There's a mean man who's enslaving [the women],' which they understood. … It's funny — they always wanna watch my movies, but they can't watch any of them."

My movie dates 😇😇

A post shared by Riley Keough (@rileykeough) on

Add "Welcome to the Stranger," which Riley also produced, to the list of films in which she's starred that are off-limits to little ones!

The Golden Globe nominee came to the moody drama, which she describes as "open for interpretation," through her manager, who also manages director Justin Kelly. She knew she wanted to work with the filmmaker after watching his feature-film directorial debut, the 2015 festival darling "I Am Michael."

Explained Riley, "[Our manager] put us on the phone and said, 'Why doesn't Justin come up with something and we can just go shoot it while you both have the time?' It was sort of a last-minute thing, honestly. We shot it in upstate New York. … Justin's really quick, so we worked together quickly. It was a couple months — he threw it together and we went up there and started hanging out and making the film."

The star of Season 1 of "The Girlfriend Experience" enlisted her "Mad Max: Fury Road" co-star and BFF Abbey Lee to take on the role of Alice, "So it was kind of a little family project," she told us.

The decision to produce "Welcome the Stranger" came naturally to the actress, who launched production company Felix Culpa with Gina Gammell in the summer of 2017.

"It's a big passion of mine — being able to put things together and development are really what I enjoy the most," Riley told Wonderwall. "We did this film, actually, before our company sort of started, and it was just a natural thing because ['Welcome the Stranger'] was a collaborative thing that we sort of put together. It was just kind of the way this one went from conception, I think."

As for why she's drawn to development, "I like working a lot," said the actress-producer. "I like calendars. I like figuring things out. I like movies — that's important! I've also got employees and co-workers and people who are able to help me because I do have an acting career as well."

"I am juggling, but I guess I like doing things and am in a better headspace when I'm working," she continued. "So I do work often. Movies are kind of my life."

"I have a personal life," she added. "But movies are my personal life too! I don't really need a balance. I like movies better than sitting at home and watching TV and hanging out. So I really enjoy my job."

Carmen Electra, 50, makes a big social media move

Carmen Electra is going social for her fans. 

The still-stunning '90s sex symbol has joined OnlyFans, the subscription-based social media site known primarily for its racy content.

"It was like a no-brainer" to join the site, she told People magazine. "I just felt like, 'Yeah, I need to do this.' I, for once, have this opportunity to be my own boss and have my own creative vision to share with my fans without someone standing over me, telling me, 'Don't do this, don't do that. Cover up this.'"

The former "Singled Out" host plans to post fun, harmless content to the site, but she won't shy away from "more sexy, classy pictures and videos." OnlyFans, she says, allows her to be "a little bit more intimate" with her fans than other social media sites. 

"People are going to do what they want to do anyway with your photos, you might as well be in control of them and follow what you feel like doing inside," she said, noting that she won't censor herself if she doesn't want to.

Just last month, Carmen sent the Internet ablaze after sharing a a sultry snap in a tangerine two-bikini on her 50th birthday. Fans immediately commented with awe, calling Carmen a "queen," "beauty" and "tangerine dream." 

Concert situation

Halsey stops concert to scold fans: 'Act like people!'

Halsey stopped a Florida concert in mid-song to scold fans for their behavior.

Video shows that Halsey was about 30 minutes into her set, singing "You Should Be Sad," when she told her band to stop. The crowd initially screamed but was soon confused about the abrupt, unexplained stoppage.

After a moment without explanation, Halsey looked out into the crowd at iThink Financial Ampitheater in West Palm Beach and launched into a bit of a tirade.

"I didn't think I was going to have to do that until a couple days into the tour, dammit," she said, without giving context to her rant. 

She then implied that something was happening in the crowd that she didn't care for. 

"While I have you I just want to make a statement … make a reminder, you know.  I know we've been locked inside for a long time and forgot how to act like f****** people," she said in the video obtained by TMZ. "But, everybody is here because they love the same thing you do so treat them with compassion, community."

She added, "All of us are here because we love the same thing, hate the same thing. Because your girlfriend dragged you here, that's fine too. You love your girlfriend. I love your girlfriend. Let's talk about that later in the set. Let's try that one more time."

Halsey then began the song from the beginning. 

Mouth mayhem

Selma Blair used to bite celebrities — one even punched her for it!

In her new memoir, Selma Blair really sinks her teeth into her past. 

The actress revealed she used to bite celebrities because she was nervous. In fact, the "Cruel Intentions" actress recounted a mouthy meeting with "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane at a Las Vegas nightclub in 2004.

"I was starstruck," she wrote in Mean Baby: A Memoir of Growing Up. "What do I do in public situations where I admire someone, but feel as if I don't bring anything to the party? I bit him on the hand. 'Whoa!' he yelled. 'That really hurt.' It wasn't a disaster; I didn't break skin. But I soon hated myself."

A similar situation happened two years later when Selma introduced herself to Sienna Miller at a Los Angeles hotel.

"I couldn't begrudge her for any part she was winning over me," she wrote. "So, I grabbed her arm and bit it, playfully, as if it were an apple. Even as I held her forearm in my mouth I was aghast at myself. I thought, What have I gotten myself into? Or her? This is horrible behavior."

Sienna took the moment in stride, screaming, "Opa." However confused, the actress-model had to confirm that it happened, telling Selma, "You bit me, didn't you? You really did."

Still, the "Live By Night" star didn't "shame" Selma over the incident 

"For this, in my book, she will forever be the belle of the ball," Selma wrote. 

Selma's chompers also got her into trouble with Kate Moss, who didn't exactly like being bitten. Selma said the two women were pleasantly hanging out in a hotel suite in London and even took Polaroids together. It was then that Selma decided to revert to her old ways, and she bit the supermodel's finger.

"And because she laughed, I did it again," Selma wrote. "The second time, she did not laugh and exclaimed, 'That really f–king hurt!'" Taking matters into her own hands, Kate then punched Selma in the back, grabbed the "Legally Blonde" star's thumb "and crunched right into it."

"This was the first time I had any inkling of how much I might hurt people when I bit them," Selma confessed. "Immediately, I transformed into a shamed nursery school kid. 'Oh my gosh,' I whispered, 'I am so sorry.'"

Dog drama

Cybill Shepherd desperate to help daughter find dognapped pup

Cybill Shepherd is reaching out to her Instagram followers in hopes of finding her daughter's dog who was taken by a dog sitter in Los Angeles.

The actress' daughter, Clementine Ford, recently left town to head to a wedding, but hired a sitter from the popular "Rover" app to watch her dog, Winnie. Clementine says she attempted to check on the dog several times while she was away, but the dogsitter stopped responding. When she got home, both Winnie and the sitter were gone without a trace. 

The dog, is a golden mix with a stub tail and floppy ear. 

On Monday and Tuesday, Cybill began reposting Clementine's pictures and messages, one that says she just wants the dog back with "no questions" asked. Cybil and her daughter also posted a picture of the woman they suspect of taking the pooch.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CdmtfZnO1ns/

"Please help us. This woman was meant to be boarding our dog. Instead she threw her collar in the trash and disappeared. Please spread far and wide," Clementine wrote alongside her accusation.

Sarah Paulson, who is close with Clementine, is also using her social media to bring awareness to the stolen pup. 

"Help. Spread the word. This woman stole my friend's dog. Share far and wide. I'm begging you," Sarah wrote.

Digital dating

Andy Cohen admits he's on 'a lot' of dating apps

When it comes to dating, it's all just a game for Andy Cohen.

The handsome Bravo scion is revealing that he's on "a lot of dating sites," but it's more about looking at the menu, rather than ordering from it.

In a chat with Page Six, Andy said he's doesn't really use dating apps with an expectation of finding love.

"I really use them more as video games," he said. "I use them more as I'm home killing time. Like, 'This is fun to look at.' It's more fun than playing Scrabble online, let me say that."

While he likes to browse, Andy probably hasn't had as much time to hang out on the apps since the recent arrival of his daughter, Lucy

"The baby's great, so cute. She looks just like Ben, which is exciting," he said, referencing his 3-year-old son. "I'm not getting a ton of sleep, as you can probably see. I have help, of course, but that doesn't mean anything. My son wakes me up earlier and earlier every day, so it's chaotic."

Andy, of course, has to sometimes deal with childlike behavior in his day job as producer of the "Real Housewives" franchise, as the women don't always play nice or play the rules.

"That's the challenge of producing the show in 2022," he told us. "Listen, every woman on those shows is cast because they're outspoken and dramatic and they're fun to watch and you see what happens. That's the ride we're all on."

Court matter

Gordon Ramsay wins $4.5M from ex associate after judge rules accuser 'fabricated evidence'

Gordon Ramsay won $4.5 million in court after a judge ruled in his favor against a former business partner.

The judge in the case deemed Rowen Seibel, who opened a now-shuttered restaurant with the chef in Los Angeles in 2012, "not a credible witness," Page Six reported, citing court documents.

Rowen sued the "Hell's Kitchen" star in 2014 after their The Fat Cow restaurant closed. In his lawsuit, Rowen said Gordon "deliberately mishandled a trademark problem" for the restaurant. He also said Gordon "formed a new company with new partners and then secretly negotiated a deal with his Los Angeles landlord" to create a new restaurant in The Fat Cow's space.

He sued for $10.8 million.

At the time, the famed chef said Rowen orchestrated a "fraudulent scheme to freeload upon the renown and acumen of celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay." He also called his former business partner "inept," "incompetent and dishonest."

On May 16, Page Six reported Judge Melissa Crane sided with the "Next Level Chef" host and ordered that Rowen pay $1.6 million as well as 50 to 70 percent of Ramsay's attorneys' fees, which totaled $5 million. The total payout comes to approximately $4.5 million. In disregarding Rowen's testimony, the judge ruled that he "fabricated evidence" and stated, "If a witness will lie to the court, it is possible he would lie about everything."

The court also believed that Rowen took kickbacks from suppliers.

A spokesman for Gordon said, "The judge believed Seibel was 'not credible,' that it 'appeared he fabricated evidence,' that he received 'kickbacks' and siphoned money and was 'incompetent in managing' the restaurant. Mr. Ramsay was earnest in his efforts to sever all business dealings as these problems with Seibel were discovered, and we're pleased but in no way surprised by the ruling."

A source close to the chef said, "It's been an emotional and stressful eight years, but Gordon feels vindicated by the judge's decision and can finally put this all behind him."

Fan behavior

Justin Bieber chides fans for screaming during moment of silence for Buffalo victims

Justin Bieber lambasted several of his fans for screaming during an in-concert moment of silence dedicated to the victims of the weekend's horrific mass shooting in Buffalo, New York. 

The concert was also in Buffalo.

Shortly after taking the stage on May 14, the "Sorry" singer addressed the crowd.

"As we know, there's been tragedy in the city, but what we're going to do tonight is we're going to honor those people," he said before encouraging the sold out arena to observe a moment of silence.

While the vast majority of fans went mum, several people screamed and hollered. Afterward, Justin posted the video and questioned the fans.

"To the people who couldn't stay silent to honor the lives that were so tragically lost, I urge you to ask yourself why," he captioned the video.

Just hours before the concert, an 18-year-old man opened fire at a Buffalo grocery store located in a predominantly Black neighborhood. Ten people were killed and more were injured.

Clearly affected by the racially-motivated murders, Justin posted that he was "praying for Buffalo" and included the city in a pre-show prayer, saying he wanted to "bring joy" to the city for a few hours. 

In an all capitalized message, he also wrote, "RACISM WILL NOT PREVAIL GOD DOES. WE STAND WITH YOU BUFFALO AND STAND AGAINST THIS RACIST ACT OF TERROR."

Kylie Jenner's super glam driver's license picture has social media buzzing

The "V" in DMV stands for "va-va-voom!"

Kylie Jenner sent social media into a frenzy over the weekend after posting a new driver's license photo, which shows her looking incredibly glamorous, especially by DMV standards. 

Instagram

In the image, the reality TV star looks fully ready — her hair is perfectly styled, her makeup is on point and the lips fully plumped. This is a far cry from your typical driver's license photo. 

Even Kylie's signature looks flawless. 

After sharing the snap, pal Anastasia Karanikolaou called it "hot." Kardashian-family superfan Johnny Cyrus wrote, "I wish my ID was this perfect."

Other fans used a host of words for the DL picture, including "iconic," "glam" and "stunning."

"Why can't all my id photos look like this," one verified follower commented. Another follower joked, "If only my driver's license looking this good… I'd be offering to show it wherever I go."

Just hours after posting the image, Kylie, 24, and daughter Stormi headed to Las Vegas to support Travis Scott at the Billboard Music Awards. It was Travis's first televised performance since the Astroworld tragedy last November.

Kylie, by the way, flew private to Las Vegas for the evening, so the glammed up ID wasn't needed.

Miranda Kerr and her billionaire husband, Snapchat co-founder Evan Spiegel, paid off the entire student debt for recent graduates at an art school in Los Angeles, reports indicate.

The Los Angeles Times reported that Charles Hirschhorn, the president of the Otis College of Art and Design, announced the news at the Class of 2022's graduation ceremony on Sunday, May 15. Evan, who once took summer classes at the college, and his model wife were on hand when graduates learned the superstar couple were taking care of the tab.

"We have one more gift for the class of 2022. We know that for most of you, and your families, the shared burden of student debt is a heavy price that you paid for an exceptional Otis college education," President Hirschhorn said. "We understand that this debt can compromise your future and limit your creative ambitions. We do not want to see this happen. We want to empower your imagination, your creativity, and innovation. As Evan mentioned in his remarks, you have the support of the entire Otis community – as well as Miranda and Evan."

He continued, "So we are pleased to announce today, that Evan and Miranda, through their Spiegel family fund, have made the largest single gift in the history of Otis college. Their gift will enable you to repay your student loans."

The donation — which is worth about $10 million — is reportedly the largest in the college's history.

As expected, students erupted in cheers upon hearing the news, and many of them cried. 

Evan is reportedly worth $13.8 billion, and Miranda's net worth is estimated to be about $60 million.

After students learned the news, the Hollywood couple praised Otis in a statement, calling it "an extraordinary institution that encourages young creatives to find their artistic voices and thrive in a variety of industries and careers."

"It is a privilege for our family to give back and support the Class of 2022, and we hope this gift will empower graduates to pursue their passions, contribute to the world, and inspire humanity for years to come," the statement said.
