The Biebers have a 'date night' in their new house
Nothing says romance like a new mansion! Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber are feeling an extra dose of love for one another this week as they get settled in their new home in the Beverly Hills section of Los Angeles. The Daily Mail spotted the couple sharing a tender kiss in the car as they sat in traffic near their new pad on Thursday, March 28, shortly before Hailey posted photos from inside the pair's still somewhat empty new home. One pic showed a lounge area piled high with pillows before a giant Netflix screen. Another showed Justin, clad in a robe, at the kitchen island by a bag of takeout from Jon & Vinny's. "My favorite kinda date night :)," Hailey wrote alongside the pic of her man. According to the Mail, the new digs have been set up to afford as much privacy as possible to its owners, with "truck loads" of trees added to the backyard last week. As he recently told fans on social media, Justin remains set on staying away from the studio while he works to deal with "some of the deep rooted issues that I have as most of us have, so that I don't fall apart, so that I can sustain my marriage and be the father I want to be." The two have reportedly decided to wait until Justin feels more stable emotionally to have their larger, more traditional wedding, as well.
Alec Baldwin talks anger management, Trump and Pete Davidson's exercise tips on Howard Stern's show
If Alec Baldwin looks a little more muscular these days, it's less because of his yoga instructor-wife, Hilaria Baldwin, than because of something one of his costars on "Saturday Night Live" suggested that Alec took to heart. "Pete Davidson said, 'Do 100 push-ups a day, every day," Alec told Howard Stern on the Wednesday, March 27, edition of his SiriusXM radio show. "And I do it now, I do more. I do like 125, 150. You build up." Before you get concerned about Alec's combination of bigger biceps with his well documented temper issues, he also addressed the parking dispute he recently faced a judge over. "Unfortunately for him, there were cameras everywhere that showed that nobody punched anybody," Alec said of the other driver. As Alec told it to Howard, the other driver, a neighbor, had parked his car quickly and "aggressively" in front of Alec's home, where Hilaria was standing on the curb with one of their children. "I just felt that what he did was impolite, bordering on dangerous," he explained. He pleaded guilty to harassing the neighbor and was ordered to attend a one-day anger management class, something he's done before. "When you go to anger management you realize you're not that angry," he joked before sharing a memory of someone else in the class he once attended getting out of control over the fact that he got a fork instead of chopsticks at an Asian restaurant. Finally, he revealed his popular Donald Trump impression has gotten him threats galore from Trump supporters including Cesar Sayoc, who pleaded guilty to sending pipe bombs to anti-Trumpers. He said his name showed up on Sayoc's computer, sparking the FBI to contact him; he now needs to security to enter and exit the "SNL" studios. Asked what he'd do if his "SNL" tenure came to a close should Trump lose the 2020 election, Alec laughed. "I'd be in bed asleep by 10 o'clock like I want to be," he said.
How Pete Davidson accidentally bought dinner for Kanye West and Tomethee Chalamet
Recent events in Pete Davidson's personal life have clued us in to the strong possibility that he's charming, talented and funny beyond his 25 years. There are some aspects of maturity, however, that come only from experience. Money matters in social settings is one such arena, as evidenced by a revelation Pete made during a recent Vanity Fair Lie Detector Test he sat for with his pal, Machine Gun Kelly. During the segment, Pete recalled going to a birthday dinner for another friend, Kid Cudi, at Nobu Malibu — a joint where, as Bravo's bloggers point out, a steak will run you about $92. Photos surfaced on social media after said dinner that showed Pete chilling with Cudi as well as Kanye West and Timothee Chalamet at the table. (Kim Kardashian was at the dinner, too, though she'd later tell Jimmy Fallon she hadn't been told it was going to be "like, a guys' dinner"). Welp. Turns out Pete left in a less-than-celebratory state of mind. "What'd ya eat?" asked Machine Gun Kelly. "Buncha rich people stuff …," said Pete. After Machine Gun griped about not having been invited, he asked, "Who paid?" "I did," Pete said. Naturally, Machine Gun then wondered who ordered the most expensive rich people stuff. Pete's reply: "Kanye kept ordering the whole entire time and I didn't know he was coming and I already put my card down to pay because I thought it would be just me and Cudi," he said, his big smile never faltering. "Then, Chalamet showed up … and then Kanye showed up and I was like 'Oh, f—." After a pause, he added, "And then I had to book two more gigs in Ohio." Before the end of the dinner chat, Machine Gun asked if Kanye was "a dessert guy." According to Pete, 'Ye is more of an "order the f—ing everything because I can and then we all have one bite, maybe … because f— you … guy." To be fair, Kanye has also established himself as an "ask Facebook's CEO for $1 billion via Twitter guy." Next time, Pete, sneak off to the men's room before the entrees arrive and cancel that card.
Offset stands by Cardi B after she admitted she drugged and robbed men while working as a stripper
Cardi B is still defending herself for a years-old Instagram live post in which she admitted that while working as a stripper, she drugged and robbed men who believed they were going to sleep with her. Now, her husband Offset, is coming to her defense, as well. This week, he shared a photo of the two in the ocean by a beach on Instagram, captioning it: "Ride or die forever love you no matter whats going on I love you best mother and hustler I know." Cardi previously said of the video, "I never claim to be perfect or come from a perfect world with a perfect past I always speak my truth I always own my s—. I never even put those things in my music because I'm not proud of it and feel responsibility not to glorify it."
Andy Cohen weighs in on rumors Paris Hilton could join 'RHOBH' cast
Paris Hilton didn't end up walking down the aisle as planned to marry Chris Zylka, but that hasn't stopped the rumor mill from deciding she wants to join the cast of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills." Amid tabloid reports the heiress demanded $1 million for a spot on the series, Page Six enlisted "Fashion Queens" co-host Bevy Smith to ask Andy Cohen for a fact-check. According to Bevy, he said the story was "not a real thing on any level," in spite of the fact Paris' aunt, Kyle Richards is on the show — and her onetime babysitter, Bethenny Frankel, stars on the show's New York City version. Kyle, by the way, nixed the rumor a few days earlier, sharing a link to Radar's $1M payday for Paris story on Instagram and writing, "I would love this, but she never said this. Haha."
Ariana Grande thanks fans for 'being supportive of my random, impulsive and excessive music releases,' after teasing another new track
Ariana Grande announced on Thursday, March 28, she plans to release another new single on Friday, in keeping with her recent trend of sharing her music as she records it rather than waiting. In a post on her Instagram Story, she took a minute this week to thank her fans for their acceptance of her unorthodox release plan. "Just saying. Thanks for being supportive of my random, impulsive and excessive music releases," she posted (via the Daily Mail). "The first few years of this were really hard on my mental health and energy," she explained. "I was so tired from promo trips and was always losing my voice and never knew what city I was in when I woke up … It was so much. It was worth it and i am grateful for everything i learned and accomplished when I did things that way, of course. But I just feel so much more connected now and yeah… If I feel like I'm able to make special things with my incredible friends quickly, why not share them right away? It's a very dope feeling and has breathed so much air back into my lil lungs." When a fan tweeted that her approach to releasing new music was "the best decision," Ariana added: "It feels sm healthier & sm more authentic & rewarding. regardless of the outcome, i prefer this bc it's real & feels happy. no games … I love music. i love the ppl i make it w. these past few months made me fall in love w this job all over again. so thank u sm for being down." The new track is reportedly a collaboration with songwriter and producer Victoria Monet.
Nicole Kidman says she's 'astounded by the harsh way women are judged'
In "Destroyer," Nicole Kidman plays what the Guardian describes as "a good cop gone bad" — and she plays both the younger and older versions of her character. The older version is an unfamiliar Nicole with wrinkles and skin spots and a look of angry exhaustion. As the Guardian points out in its latest feature on Nicole and her most recent film role, critics have been using much less … kind … adjectives to describe her transformation than they have in describing, say, Christian Bale's puffed out Dick Cheney physique for "Vice." "A lot of times if you are going to be a female in an action film, they want you to look gorgeous, be bad-ass, be capable of firing guns and doing high kicks and still having lipstick and being svelte and being in a whole different class of action hero," Nicole says. "This is gritty and raw and totally authentic. It's very different to give screen time — and this amount of screen time — to a woman who looks like this, who behaves like this, who is riddled with shame and anger and fury and rage, yet is also a mother and not a good mother." Asked about writers' takes on her physical changes versus Christian's, she says, "I'm always astounded at the harsh way in which women are judged, and I shouldn't be. I should know that by now, but it is what it is." She then adds a hopeful thought: "Maybe in 20 years time, for the next generation of women, it will be different. … But by God, I want to be one of those women who's helping carve a path for the next generation, because I'm the recipient of those that have come before me to even be in this position. … We didn't get to work 25 years ago, women were pretty much cast out by now, and that's abominable. But that's in any work force, and those trends are changing, thank God, but we have to keep the conversation moving forward."
Carson Daly shares an emotional message about his late mother on her birthday
Carson Daly's mother died of a heart attack in September 2017 but it clearly feels like yesterday for the "Today" and "The Voice" host. "Mom would have been the big 75 today," he wrote on Instagram on Thursday, March 27, alongside a photo of his mom, Pattie Daly Caruso, with him and his sister, Quinn. The emotional message went on to reference a conversation he had with Quinn about how unreal Pattie's death still feels. "As I told my sister this morning, I'm still in total denial & plan on calling her later," he wrote. "We'll celebrate tonight w her classic fried chicken, tons of red vino & peanut butter cookies! And her grand babies of course. Love you mom! happy bday & Talk later ❤️🍷."

Cara Delevingne opens up accepting her sexuality — and the activity that's replaced clubbing
When it comes to love and sex, Cara Delevingne, 26, has become comfortable acknowledging she identifies as sexually fluid, having been with both men and women. She opened up about her experiences with love and sex to RuPaul for his podcast, "What's The Tee," this week, admitting that she initially struggled to accept she wasn't simply into guys. "Films and fantasy and books were so incredible to me and I learned so many lessons from that. That was why I never wanted to accept my sexuality. Disney princesses all love men and that's the way it is. And I'm not going to be a princess if I don't like men," she explained (via People). Cara's reportedly been dating Ashley Benson for more than a year, though she says she prefers to maintain privacy around her romantic relationships. She's less private about the activity that's replaced clubbing over the years, though. "I used to go to clubs," she said, "but I'd rather have sex than go out now."
