Channing Tatum and Jessie J enjoy a rare public date night in Los Angeles
With their one-year anniversary just around the corner, Channing Tatum and Jessie J enjoyed a rare, public date night in Los Angeles on Saturday, Sept. 7, when they headed to the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles for a screening of "Blade Runner" with friends. A photo from the laid back night out shows the "Magic Mike" star and singer seated on a blanket on the ground looking cozy and warm while surrounded by friends (via People). In the pic, Channing rests one arm around the knee of his lady as she cuddles up against him, smiling, and loops the other around the male pal on the other side of him. Both stars seem to have become more comfortable letting the public in on their romance, which reportedly began last October. But as Jessie recently told The Times, dating in the spotlight hasn't been easy. "Chan and I got photographed before our relationship was even a thing and that created such pressure," she explained. "We've needed time to get to know each other. We've just had our first holiday together, which was wonderful, but that's all I'm saying…" She later acknowledged that she's "very happy" and that she finds Everly Tatum, the 6-year-old daughter Channing Tatum shares with his ex, Jenna Dewan, to be "absolutely lovely." According to The Sun, the couple now rents a mansion in Suffolk, about an hour and a half outside London, with Channing splitting his time between England and the U.S.
Wendy Williams on whether she'd get a prenup if she remarries: 'abso-effing-lutely!'
Wendy Williams has learned a thing or two about marriage since she split from her husband, Kevin Hunter, after 21 years of marriage. One of those lessons, she told Andy Cohen on the latest edition of "Watch What Happens Live," has to do with how she'll protect her finances in future relationships. Asked if she'd require a prenup should she marry one of the "many men" she said she's been seeing, Wendy laughed and told Andy, "abso-effing-lutely," according to Us Weekly. The TV host also pointed out that she skipped the prenup with Kevin because she didn't think the marriage would end in divorce. Since filing for divorce in April, though, Wendy said she has plenty to be about, not the least of which is embracing her post-Kevin identity. "I really like the new me," she said. " I don't know who I've become, but I like her. She's smart, she's strong, she makes good choices."

Nicole Kidman struggles to 'shed' the emotional weight of traumatic scenes
As Nicole Kidman promotes her new drama, "The Goldfinch,"at the Toronto International Film Festival, it's clear her experience producing and starring in "Big Little Lies" continues to inform her other work as well as her off-screen emotional state. "A lot of times when you're acting scenes that are very traumatic, your body doesn't know the difference," she told reporters at a press conference for the film over the weekend, according to the Daily Mail. "You take it on and you become that, and so much of it is then trying to shed that. It's something that I'm exploring, just as an actor with other actors right now, because how do you keep a lifetime of doing these sort of things because it's so important to be telling these stories." In "Big Little Lies," Nicole — who shares two daughters with her husband, Keith Urban — played a mother struggling with the effects of domestic abuse during and even after the death of her husband. She plays a surrogate mom, of sorts, to the main character in "The Goldfinch," taking emotional responsibility for him after his own mother is killed in a terrorist attack. As Nicole told press at TIFF, characters like these have made her think hard about how to "actually stay healthy yourself so you can keep giving."

In a video posted on her Instagram on Sunday, Sept. 8, Cardi told followers: "Let me tell you somethin', I don't like talkin' s— about a b—-'s body because I remember the struggle, baby." According to People, she later asked trolls if they were spewing negativity about people who have gone under the knife because they were jealous of the results. "'Cause it sounds like you hatin','" she said. Before signing off, she warned that she'll "only come at people about their body when they're talking" smack about her.
Billy Bush claims 'everyone' at NBC knew about the 'Access Hollywood' tape before it was leaked
When the so-called "Access Hollywood" tape of a conversation between Billy Bush and Donald Trump was leaked in 2016, the contents of the tape — in which Trump boasted he could"grab" women by their genitals — was no secret to those at the network. That's according to Bush, who appears in a new sit-down with Gayle King on the Tuesday, Sept. 10 edition of "CBS This Morning" (via Page Six). "You knew there was a tape," King says in a preview clip of the segment. "Everybody did … Oh, well everybody at the network. I was comfortable it wasn't going to be weaponized," says Bush, who worked at "Today" at the time. "I was told that, 'You're good. Don't worry about it. It's not you. You didn't say anything,'" Bush recalls. He was canned two days later. "Remember, it was — it was leaked on a Friday. And then Sunday morning, I walked out that door, right over there, with my bags to go back to work. And the driver said, 'I'm sorry, they've canceled the car.' I said, 'Oh, that must be a mistake,'" he recalls. "Called my lawyer and I said 'Uh are we OK?' 'Nope.'" Page Six reports that "multiple sources" confirmed the leak came from someone on the staff of "Today" who hoped to interfere with Trump's presidential campaign while scoring brownie points with Matt Lauer, who reportedly "didn't like." "The leaked tape served a dual purpose: It helped get Bush out of the way — Matt Lauer didn't like him and felt he was a liability — and NBC thought it would derail Trump," one insider is quoted as saying. "But all it did was crush Billy, and, ironically, his own network was behind it."
Victims' rights attorney reportedly offered to plant stories discrediting Rose McGowan amid Harvey Weinstein scandal
Among the many bombshells revealed in Jodi Kantor and Meghan Twohey's new book about the Harvey Weinstein scandal is an allegation that victims' rights attorney Lisa Bloom offered to discredit Rose McGowan's rape allegation against the producer by planting stories disparaging her character. Excerpts from the book, published by New York Times (via Page Six), show that in 2016, Bloom sent a memo to Weinstein offering her services to "help you against the Roses of the world, because I have represented so many of them." The memo went on to suggest Bloom "place an article re her becoming increasingly unglued … so that when someone Googles her this is what pops up and she's discredited." According to Kantor and Twohey, Bloom worked for Weinstein at $875 an hour to interfere with reporters' investigations into the various sexual misconduct allegations levied against him, including claims by McGowan and Ashley Judd, by making his accusers look unreliable. "The evil that was perpetrated on me and others was mind bending and illegal," McGowan tweeted after the Times posted excerpts from the book. Bloom responded as well, releasing a statement thanking the writers — who also wrote the Times' 2017 expose about Weinstein — for "forcing me to confront the colossal mistake I made in working for Weinstein two years ago." She added: "While painful, I learn so much more from my mistakes than my successes. To those who missed my 2017 apology, and especially to the women: I am sorry." The book is out Tuesday, Sept. 10.
Ouch! Kourtney Kardashian signs up for plasma injections to correct a bald spot
Seems Kim Kardashian West takes issues related to hair — or lack thereof — a wee bit ore seriously than her sister, Kourtney Kardashian. In a trailer ahead of this weekend's Season 17 premiere of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," Kim noticed a spot on Kourtney's scalp where she seemed to have lost hair — and responded as one might respond to a family member experiencing severe chest pains. "Kourtney, you have a really big spot on the top of your head," Kim announces in the clip (via People). "Look down, Kourtney. Oh my god, I'm afraid for your life," she (semi)-jokes. "Have you seen that?" Kourtney says she can "feel" it and thinks she knows what caused it. "It's a hole in my head. I swear it's from my ponytail, it was so tight that I had a bump on my head like this," she says. "Kourtney, your hair is gone. You're bald. You have to go to the hospital right now," Kim replies in an urgent tone. Seemingly exhausted with her sister, Kourtney says she's not going to the hospital. But she eventually takes Kim's advice about getting medical help, leading to a scene in the premiere where Kourtney consents to plasma injections in her scalp (a sentence that's causing us vicarious pain as we type it). "Today I'm getting PRP [platelet-rich plasma], which is where they take your blood and spin it and they use your plasma and they inject it in my head for my hair to grow back," Kourtney tells viewers of her visit with Dr. Jason Diamond, who advises a few visits' worth of the treatment. "I definitely think that we should get some injections in there," says the doctor. "I think you probably need two or three series, maybe once a month for the next three months and I think you'll be fine." Good news! Now Kim can rest easy …
Ashley Benson can't wait to meet Shay Mitchell's baby-to-be
Ashley Benson's former "Pretty Little Liars" castmates are in full baby mode these days and while she's not ready to welcome a little one of her own yet, Ashley couldn't be more excited for her friends. Speaking to People about her pal Shay Mitchell's pregnancy this week, the 25-year-old gushed that she "can't wait to see her with the baby," adding that she's "going to be an amazing mom." Ashley also shared how helpful it's been for Shay to have their other costar, Troian Bellisario, by her side given Troian's recent experience welcoming a child with her husband Patrick J. Adams last fall. "It's so fun that [Shay] and Troian had babies [around] the same time," Ashley explained. "I know Troian really helped her through this pregnancy by telling her what she went through. I'm just excited to have another little 'niece.' Now I get to enjoy both babies." Ashley, who recently confirmed her relationship with Cara Delevingne, went on to admit she's looking forward to having a huge family herself at some point. "I'm obsessed with babies," she said. "I want, like, 25 kids. Now they're going to help with mine whenever I get pregnant — not anytime soon — but it'll be fun." Shay is due next month.
Kyle Richards responds to Camille Grammer's claim she prevented Camille from returning to 'RHOBH'
Kyle Richards has denied Camille Grammer's allegation she "wasn't asked back" for Season 10 of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" because of Kyle. ET caught up with Kyle during New York Fashion Week and asked about Camille's tweets claiming "it was up to Kyle" whether she returned for the next season. "I mean, I don't know what goes through Camille's mind," Kyle said. "I really don't know what to say, but I'm not the reason that Camille is not here right now." Camille, meanwhile, is apparently OK with the change. "I'm really fine," her tweet about Kyle continued. "After the reunion, I didn't want to come back. It was an awful experience."
Marie Osmond on the death of her son: 'I don't think you're ever through it'
For Marie Osmond, the pain of losing her son Michael in 2010, still feels fresh. "You know, I don't think you're ever through it. I think God gives you respites, and then all of a sudden it'll hit you like the day it did," the new co-host of "The Talk" said on "CBS Sunday Morning" over the weekend. "The ripple effect is so huge, what you leave behind." One of her eight children, Marie's son Michael Blosil died at the age of 18 in 2010 after taking his own life. As she told Oprah Winfrey (via Page Six), she identified with some of what her son was dealing with before he died. "When I heard him say to me, 'I have no friends,' it brought back when I went through depression, because you really feel so alone," she said. "I'm not a depressed person, but I understand that place, that darkness … I told him, I said, 'Mike, I'm gonna be there Monday and it's gonna be OK.' But depression doesn't wait 'til Monday."
