Kaley Cuoco says she doesn't 'need Karl [Cook] for anything'
One of the best things about Kaley Cuoco and Karl Cook's marriage, at least for Kaley, is the independence she maintains in the relationship. As she explains in the November edition of Women's Health, Kaley and Karl, who married over the summer, share similar perspectives on the world — including the belief that a person needs to be able to support themselves regardless of their relationship status. "We bonded a lot of having the same kind of outlooks on life, insecurities, dating. He comes from a very well-to-do family, so there's all these [preconceived ideas] of being spoiled, and blah, blah, blah. And he's just the opposite," she says. Adding that Karl appreciated her love of horses — and never "kissed my a–" because she happens to be on a hit show — Kaley says she also feels more secure about things at home because she'll never have to lean on Karl for his bank account or earning potential. "I like knowing that I'm [financially] set, because I've taken it upon myself to do that," she explains. "I like to tell my friends, 'Always make sure you have your life going, and that you're number one, so that anyone who comes into it – husband, or boyfriend, or girlfriend, however you roll – that's just an added bonus to whatever you're creating.' I don't need Karl for anything. If Karl left me tomorrow, I'd be fine. And he knows that, and he would be fine too."

Engagement rumors hit Rosie O'Donnell and Elizabeth Rooney
Is Rosie O'Donnell engaged? A new report from Radar claims the 56-year-old star proposed to her girlfriend, 33-year-old Elizabeth Rooney, over the summer, noting that the couple chose not to go public with the news because it might interfere with Elizabeth's police work in Worcester, Mass. "Elizabeth is in the police force so she tries to keep a lot of those details on the low," a source told the website. The Daily Mail reports that those close to Rosie and her family believe the couple is "very much in love," while Rosie's rep would confirm only that Elizabeth and Rosie "are together." If Rosie did propose, it would be somewhat of a surprise, given remarks she made about marriage to Howard Stern last year, telling him she "will not ever" wed again after her marriage to Michelle Rounds ended in a bitter divorce. (Michelle later committed suicide.) Rosie was previously married to Kelli Carpenter-O'Donnell. This would be Elizabeth's first trip down the aisle.

Will Kanye West join Taylor Swift onstage for 'I Did Something Bad' at the AMA's?
When Taylor Swift takes the stage at the 2018 American Music Awards on Tuesday, Oct. 9, to perform "I Did Something Bad," she's unlikely to have a cameo from the man who's rumored to have inspired the song. That's according to Us Weekly, which reports Kanye West — whom fans believe was the "narcissist" Taylor references in her song — is "not going" to the awards show despite whispers he might team up with Taylor to either rehash or put an end to their years-long feud. "[Kanye] would not come out with Taylor even if he were" attending the show, says an Us source. Taylor and Kanye have famously traded barbs on multiple occasions, beginning in 2009 when he interrupted her MTV Video Music Awards acceptance speech. More recently, Kanye called her a "b—-" in his track "Famous" and took credit for her success. He also secretly recorded a phone conversation in which they discussed the song but, according to People, not the nasty lyric about her. Kanye's wife, Kim Kardashian West, later went after her on social media, sparking some to suspect she was talking about Kim and/or Kanye when she told her "Reputation" audience in May, "If someone uses name-calling to bully you on social media, and even if a lot of people jump on board with it, that doesn't have to defeat you, it can strengthen you instead."
Sophia Hutchins says Caitlyn Jenner did not vote for Donald Trump
After Caitlyn Jenner's rumored partner, Sophia Hutchins, appeared on Jim Breslo's "Hidden Truth" podcast, there was so much buzz about her description of the relationship she has with Caitlyn that an interesting detail about Caitlyn's politics was largely overlooked. The former Olympian was widely criticized for siding with Donald Trump during the election. She defended herself on the issue in conversations with Diane Sawyer and Seth Meyers, but Sophia said on the podcast that in fact, Caitlyn did not vote for Trump, according to TMZ. Though Sophia didn't explain the seeming contradiction, she did say the transgender community has treated Caitlyn poorly, thanks in part to what certain trans rights leaders and advocates have said about the former Olympian. Sophia also said she was frustrated by the media's portrayal of Caitlyn, whom Sophia believes is often shunned as a result of her wealth and apparent privilege despite the trans advocacy work she does through her foundation.
Duchess Meghan's nephew lands a reality TV gig with 'The Royal World'
Oh, boy. The relatives on Duchess Meghan's father's side are at it again. Page Six reports Tyler Dooley, Meghan's nephew via her half brother, Thomas Markle Jr., is set to appear on MTV International's "Real World"-esque "The Royal World," which airs Nov. 7. According to Page Six, Tyler calls Meghan "his favorite royal because he doesn't know any of the others." Ahem. The 25-year-old currently lives in Oregon, where he sells a strain of weed called "Markle Sparkle" and operates a legal marijuana company called Royally Grown. Tyler's dad, you may recall, was the Markle who slammed Meghan for failing to invite him to the royal wedding, called her "phony" and said she had become "a different person" since launching her TV career. We'll forgive Queen Elizabeth if she finds she needs a few new strands of pearls to clutch ahead of the show's premiere.
Amber Rose is dating Tyga's BFF
Looks like there's a new man in Amber Rose's life — and his friendship with Tyga could make for some awkward interactions between Tyga and Amber's close friend, Blac Chyna.

Insiders tell TMZ the two have been dating for a couple weeks, although they reportedly met back when Tyga and Chyna were an item.

Jonah Hill teases Adidas collaboration
Is Jonah Hill Hollywood's next celeb-turned-designer? On Sunday, Oct. 7, the "Maniac" star teased a new project on Instagram, telling his followers, "Something fun coming from me and Adidas? 😊" before adding the jokey hashtags, "#fullkardashian #sellingout? #fulldisick." He has yet to share any real details about the collaboration, but Page Six points out Jonahs been getting more and more praise for his sense of style lately. Last month, Vanity Fair included him in the magazine's Best Dressed List for 2018, gushing that his "commitment to [his] look is as deep as the pockets on his Prada coat." GQ, meanwhile, went as far as to label the actor "our new style savior." As for the Adidas collaboration, Page Six suspects there could be a '90s theme, given Jonah's seeming affection for looks from that decade and his directorial debut with the new film, "Mid90s."
