Jessica Biel posts on Instagram for the first time since Justin's hand-holding contro
Jessica Biel has continued to remain mum about photos that surfaced late last month showing her husband Justin Timberlake holding hands with his "Palmer" costar Alisha Wainwright at a bar in New Orleans where they're shooting. But after Justin's recent public apology for his "strong lapse in judgment," his assurances "nothing happened" beyond the hand-holding and multiple reports that the couple will stay "united," the actress was back on social media this week for the first time since Nov. 21. Smiling for the camera, she shared video of herself posing with some folks in what E! News reports is a sponsored post for Gaiam, a yoga and wellness company, on Instagram. "When the team turns it ON for the @gaiam camera. ❤️," she captioned the clip. Justin was among those who liked and commented below, praising his lady and her "squad."
'No tension' between Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston as the exes head into awards season
Nothing to see here! (OK, unless you count some seriously '90s haircuts …) Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt, who were married from 2000 until 2005, are both up for Golden Globes and SAG Awards as they head into awards season. Things between the exes are reportedly pretty mellow, though. "There won't be any issues, no tension," an insider recently told Page Six. "Brad and Jen are still friends. They speak once in a while, and even though there are these fools who say they're getting back together, of course they're not. But they will always be fond of each other." The two reportedly got in touch after both Brad's split from Angelina Jolie and Jen's split from Justin Theroux. Brad also attended Jen's 50th birthday party earlier this year.
Ryan Reynolds avoids sharing new daughter's name in the most hilarious way
Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively recently welcomed their third daughter and as was the case with their first two, Inez, 3, and James, 4, they're trying to keep her name on the DL for as long as possible, as Ryan indicated when stopped by the "Today" show this week to promote his new film "6 Underground." After joking that having a household made up almost entirely of women is just his way of "doing my part to wipe men off the face of the earth," he adorably dodged the subject of the new addition's name. "We haven't [named her] yet," he quipped, according to ET. "… All the letters in her name are silent. I want to give her something to push against in life."

Juice WRLD's mother breaks her silence on rapper's death
In the wake of rapper Juice WRLD's unexpected death on Sunday, Dec. 8, law enforcement sources told TMZ the 21-year-old appeared to have swallowed a number of Percocet pills that may have triggered his medical emergency and death. Now, his mother is speaking out for the first time, telling the website that while her family is grieving the death of her son, born Jarad Anthony Higgins, they hope his untimely passing will inspire others to get help with the prescription drug issues he struggled with. "We loved Jarad with all of our hearts and cannot believe our time with him has been cut short. As he often addressed in his music and to his fans, Jarad battled with prescription drug dependency. Addiction knows no boundaries and its impact goes way beyond the person fighting it," Carmella Wallace told TMZ. "Jarad was a son, brother, grandson, friend and so much more to so many people who wanted more than anything to see him defeat addiction," she continued. "We hope the conversations he started in his music and his legacy will help others win their battles as that is what he wanted more than anything."
Reese Witherspoon recalls being typecast, told to 'dress sexy' and worse in her 20s
In its new issue, The Hollywood Reporter looks back at "The Rise of Reese," tracing Reese Witherspoon's path to the Oscar-winning actress and game-changing producer she's become at 43. As she tells THR, it wasn't easy — particularly when it came to shaking some of the stereotypes she played in her first big roles. After playing what People aptly describes as "a self-assured overachiever" in "Election," the casting director thought she was "a shrew" and didn't see her as a solid Elle Woods for "Legally Blonde." Of course, she nailed the part and the film was a huge success. But she initially was losing roles because of "Election." "My manager finally called and said: 'You've got to go meet with the studio head because he will not approve you. He thinks you really are your character from 'Election' and that you're repellent.' And then I was told to dress 'sexy,'" she recalled. She was 23, she continued, and was trying to make money to raise her baby, so she trusted that the pros were telling her things that made sense. "I remember a room full of men who were asking me questions about being a coed and being in a sorority, even though I had dropped out of college four years earlier and I have never been inside a sorority house," she recalled. "It's funny to think of all the things we were told to do back then because now you're thinking, 'Oh God, if somebody told my daughter to do that, she'd be like, I really hope you're joking.'" Reese added that she has no intention of standing on the sidelines when it comes to that kind of bias, "… and I certainly don't want to leave this business the same way that I found it."

Erin and Sara Foster get candid about their early relationship with their father, David Foster
Sara Foster and her sister, Erin Foster, are not sugar-coating things when it comes to their feelings about their dad, David Foster, from childhood. "Our dad was raising other children. He wasn't raising us. He was raising Brandon [Jenner] and Brody [Jenner]," Sara revealed on Kate Hudson and Oliver Hudson's "Sibling Revelry" podcast this week, according to Us Weekly. "So, for Erin, what weighed so heavily on her, was me. I was, like, dealing with my whole own emotional turmoil, which was watching my father raise other children. That was the thing that kept me up at night." David married the Jenners' mom, Linda Thompson after splitting from Sara and Erin's mom, Rebecca Dyer, when the girls were young, they explained. "We never lived with our dad, right, after our parents broke up. So, from the ages of 3 and 5 we were living with our mom, and our dad was living in this $20 million house with Brandon and Brody. It had the trolley, it had the pool and this thing," said Erin, 37. "They had a very different life. But, out in the world, people would be like, 'You guys are spoiled brats and you guys have it all and you're rich kids.' And we would be like, 'I mean, yeah, but we don't live there. We don't have the gate code. We don't have a room there. We're not really a part of that world.'" Erin added that she and her sister would "get all the backlash for" their father's lifestyle without getting "the benefits."
