Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna asked for $100k worth of free nursery items
It seems Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna weren't taking notes when Rob's sisters snagged all those luxe AirBnB vacation getaways for free. Kylie Jenner, Kim Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian were all careful to promote their homes away from home. But a source tells InTouch Rob and Chyna wanted various companies to help them set up a "top of the line nursery" in exchange for nothing. "They asked for things like a $15,000 closet from Lisa Adams' LA Closet Design, a $5,000 Nursery Works crib, a $4,000 rocker, a $2,500 Romina dresser, at least $3,000 in bedding and much more," says the insider. The companies reportedly asked the couple to show off the products that had been given to them and get the nursery on their show, "Rob & Chyna," but they declined. "… The companies told them to get lost," said the source. Instead, they opted to reuse hand-me-downs from Kourtney's nursery.

Ryan Reynolds: Blake Lively kept me sane during 'Deadpool'
Ryan Reynolds' Variety interview is giving us a bit of Blake Lively-related deja-vu. At his Walk of Fame ceremony last month, the Golden Globes Best Actor nominee credited his wife with much of the success that got him there. He shared a similar sentiment in Variety's February issue, explaining how his lifelong battle with anxiety affected his ability to enjoy the public anticipation of "Deadpool." "By the time we were in [post-production], we'd been to Comic-Con, and people went crazy for it. The expectations were eating me alive," he said (via E! News). "Blake helped me through that. I'm lucky to have her around just to keep me sane." Later in the interview, he admits his issues were likely inspired by his situation at home. "I have three older brothers. Our father was tough. He wasn't easy on anyone. And he wasn't easy on himself," the actor explained. "I think the anxiety might have started there, trying to find ways to control others by trying to control myself. At the time, I never recognized that. I was just a twitchy kid."
January Jones opens up about single parenthood
Families come in all shapes and sizes these days and for women like January Jones, they still work just fine. The "Mad Men" alum welcomed her son Xander in 2001 and has refrained from sharing with the world who Xander's dad is. Is raising him alone come with its challenges? Sure, she explains in the February edition of of Red magazine. But those challenges don't necessarily have to do with January's decision to remain single. "Xander has a lot of bro time with the neighbor dads and my dad, who is super young. It's good to have strong women around a man to teach him to respect women. He doesn't have a male person saying 'don't cry' or 'you throw like a girl.' All those s–tty things that dads accidentally do," she says (via People). "I just don't feel I need a partner. Do I want one? Maybe. But I don't feel unhappy or lonely. It would have to be someone so amazing that I would want to make room. Someone who would contribute to my happiness and not take away from it." She also realizes she needs to play two roles at certain points, though. "I don't want to be bad cop, but to have his respect, I have to be both. I'm an emotionally immature person—I'm an actor for God's sake. I see myself behaving like a child all the time. This morning, I made Xander eggs, toast, a smoothie. He spat out his blueberries, threw the eggs into the sink, was playing with his toast, and I just lost my s—. And I took the plate and threw it in the garbage, in tears. Someone needs to be the mature one here, but I had a full tantrum," she recalls. "Maybe I should get a manny."
