Behati Prinsloo and Adam Levine buy Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner's house for $32M
Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo are the proud new owners of a massive, 3.1 acre compound in the Los Angeles neighborhood, Pacific Palisades — and they're not the first high-profile couple to takeover the sprawling pad. TMZ reports the pair bought the place for $32 million from Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, who lived there with their three kids for years after Jen and Ben split. A closer look at the logistics of the home shows why that living situation probably worked pretty comfortably for everyone. Ben lived in what the Daily Mail described as an "extensive subterranean guesthouse right after their split, while Jen and the kids stayed in some other combination of the 16,000 square feet of living space afforded by the three buildings on the property. Adam, Behati and their two daughters will likely opt for the 8,800 square foot main residence, which features one large level with with five bedrooms and eight bathrooms. Other amenities include a pool, basketball court, gym, screening room and art studio, according to the Mail. The two bedroom, three-bath guest house Ben stayed in, meanwhile, has its own screening room. The Mail reports the sale was nailed down between reps for the two couples. Previous owners have included producer Brian Grazer, who sold the digs to Ben and Jen for $17.55 million, and Gregory Peck.
Kim Kardashian West and Kourtney Kardashian slammed for promoting weight loss shakes
The Kardashian-Jenner family racks up plenty of cash from "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" and their various beauty, fashion and other businesses, but they also still flex their collective social media muscles by doing the occasional paid promotion post on Instagram. The ads don't always go over well, though. This week was a case in point, as Kourtney Kardashian followed up her sister, Kim Kardashian West's Flat Tummy Co. shakes promo post with a similar post for the same company. In spite of the sibs' admittedly flat tummies, the posts had similarly not-so-positive responses, according the Daily Mail. Kim shared the first promotion for the shakes on Wednesday, Jan. 2. It wasn't long before she was accused by commenters of "[preying] on the insecurities of millions of girls and young women." When Kourtney posted a photo of herself holding a shake while wearing Calvin Klein lingerie the next day, the reaction wasn't much better. "Back from Aspen and back on the @flattummyco meal replacement shakes…they're exactly what I need right now," she wrote in the caption. "Day 3 on the program and I'm already feeling good again. I'm starting to see my tummy toning up nicely. Chocolate is my favorite, but they've got 20% OFF all their flavors right now so you guys should check them out!" One user commented, "Considering you're all about living the organic life you seem to enjoy promoting toxic crap to young girls. I hope P doesn't get influenced by this," referring to Kourtney's daughter, Penelope, while another posted, "This is just a lie. You ladies (Kardashians) are thin because you eat salads only and little to no carbs. You also work out. You're not thin because of this tea." Kim and other reality stars were also criticized in May for promoting the company.
Blac Chyna says she'll reimburse Rob Kardashian for the TV she broke; won't confess further allegations
In the latest legal twist between Rob Kardashian and his ex, Blac Chyna, Chyna has agreed to pay for a TV of Rob's she allegedly damaged on Dec. 14, 2016, after consuming what Rob and his lawyers are calling "a significant amount of drugs and alcohol." Court documents excerpted by The Blast show Chyna denies the other claims Rob made in a suit against Chyna –including that she also "destroyed" his iPhone, damaged a wall, broke down a door and smashed a gingerbread house. The docs suggest that while Chyna's willing to reimburse Rob for the television, she intends to fight the other allegations. Rob has also claimed she "lunged towards [him] with an iPhone charging cable and attempted to strangle Rob with the cord around his neck." The docs assert that Chyna plans to prove the gingerbread house "was a gift to her from Kris Jenner and that Rob consented to the damage done to his t-shirt," which she's decided was worth $250, making the damages she's wiling to pay be about 495,000. "A selfie video of Rob that he posted on Snapchat within one to two days shows no marks, cuts, or bruises on his face," Chyhna's lawyerspoint out. "Without injury, Rob cannot claim general damages for pain and suffering." Chyna has said she nothing wrong that wasn't in "was reasonable and necessary for Defendant's self-defense and defense of others."
Mariah Carey gets flirty with Bryan Tanaka in St. Barts
Like a slew of her celebrity peers, Mariah Carey has spent her first week of 2019 splashing around St. Barts. Joined oby her boyfriend, dancer Bryan Tanaka, and the twins she shares with Nick Cannon, Monroe and Moroccan Cannon, Mimi's sun-filled getaway came on the heels of her usual Christmas-time trip to Aspen. On Thursday, Jan. 3, the wetsuit-clad singer was spotted flirting in the water — which The Blast notes was over 80 degrees that day — with Bryan and the kids. The whole group also paddled on a glass-bottomed kayak around a cove while taking plenty of selfies. Mimi's due back out on tour next month, kicking things off with a few weeks at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas before she hits the road again.
Why fans think Taylor Swift's NYE costume was a hint about her next album
After a long stint out of the public eye and largely off social media, Taylor Swift returned to her old-school ways on New Year's Eve when she hosted a childhood heroes-themed costume party. Now, some fans think there may have been an Easter egg hidden in Taylor's costume choice, which she showed off in a group pic from the bash captioned, "Mary Poppins, Audrey, Ariel, Ms. Frizzle, Cinderella, Gwen, Mr. Toad, Avril, Nancy Drew, Posh Spice, Rizzo, Frida Kahlo, Steve Irwin, Dorothy.. This new year we decided to dress up as our childhood heroes. Sending you all love and hope going into 2019 💗." Taylor was dressed as Ariel from "The Little Mermaid" and fans have apparently been going crazy trying to prove her next project will have something to do with mermaids. In comments captured by Glamour, commenters point out the singer wore mermaid-inspired looks regularly on her "Reputation Tour" and that "The Little Mermaid" came out in 29189, the year Taylor was born — and the name of one of her hit albums. She even wears a shirt with mermaids on it at the end of her new "Reputation" movie, which came out this week. If the mermaid situation is a hint of some sort, though, Swifties may have a long wait before any new music surfaces. Between the release of "Bad Blood" and "Reputation," the singer spent a good, long while underground — or should we say, underwater (ahem) …
Jim Parsons explains why it was time to end 'The Big Bang Theory'
While Kaley Cuoco's been vocal about wanting to continue shooting "The Big Bang Theory," now in its last season, her co-star, Jim Parsons feels positive about arriving at the end of the road with the long-running series. In a new interview with EW, the 45-year-old, four-time Emmy winner explains why. "It's both as complex and as simple as just feeling innately that it was time," he says (via Us Weekly). "It speaks to a lot of things, none of them bad. There is no negative reason to stop doing 'Big Bang.' It felt like we have been able to do this for so many years now, it doesn't feel like there is anything left on the table. Not that we couldn't keep doing it, but it feels like we've chewed all the meat off this bone." He adds that it was also the "right time" his life to try something new, even though he says there's nothing "specific" he's hoping to do instead. "I'm firmly in my middle age now. I don't know how much longer I can wear [the T-shirts] without looking really long in the tooth," Jim jokes. "In a way, it's exciting. What is this next chapter of life? What is this next chapter for all of us?" the star wonders. "It will be very, very sad when it does end, even knowing [I am] OK with it. People are OK when they graduate but there are frequently tears at graduation. It's hard to say goodbye to people that you have worked with for so long."

New year, newly healed vocal cords!

In an Instagram video (via ET), Justin tells fans, "First of all, Happy New Year. Hope everybody had a good holiday. Second of all, D.C. we here. We're back. Can't wait. Excited, ya'll ready?!" The singer postponed his remaining 2018 concerts at the beginning of last month after learning he'd bruised his vocal cords.

Justin plays the Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C., on Friday, Jan. 4.
Lea Michele and her fiance, Zandy Reich, double-date with Brad Goreski and Gary Janetti at Craig's
Smiling husband and wife-to-be, Lea Michele and Zandy Reich joined Lea's close pal, celeb stylist Brad Goreski and his husband, Gary Janetti for a double-date at Craig's in Los Angeles' West Hollywood section on Thursday, Jan. 3, according to JustJared. Lea and Zandy got engaged last spring after more than a year of dating when Zandy popped the question, slipping a 4-carat, radiant cut sparkler on his lady's finger. As 2018 came to a close, the pair seemed more than ready to say "I do," having celebrated their engagement with family and friends. Lea's mom also feted her with a bridal shower shortly before the holidays. As for their date night with Brad and Gary, it seems unlikely Brad was there to offer wedding fashion advice. As the "Glee" alum told People back in August, she's already in good shape, wedding gown-wise. "I saw a photo, it was the first one I tried on and it was the one that I picked," she said at the time. "I'm a very decisive person so they said I was one of the easiest brides that they have ever dealt with."
