A-list bedroom tales
Teddi Mellencamp is kissing and telling — well, her friends are. The former "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star revealed that she had a one-night encounter with Matt Damon two decades ago when both were single. Teddi, while being egged on by pal Tamra Judge, said she met the actor at a bar while she was 20 years old and using a fake ID. "I only slept with him one night. He didn't get my number," she said on Jeff Lewis' Sirius show. Although Teddi squirmed during the conversation, Tamra reveled in it, noting she's happy to tell anyone about her friend's one-night stand. "I've already been coined a liar," Teddi good-naturedly said. "I don't need these kinds of things to be out and about."
Kelly Clarkson's 8-year-old daughter, River Rose, is being "bullied" in school because she suffers from a common learning disability. While speaking to Henry Winkler on her eponymous talk show, the singer praised the "Barry" actor for his prolific career as a children's book author. "I was driving my daughter to school yesterday, and she's dyslexic," Kelly shared. "And you have told me that you're dyslexic as well. I find that amazing, to tell my daughter that you've written like 40 books and you're dyslexic." River, Kelly said, is "getting bullied at school for not being able to read like all the other kids." Henry quickly pointed out that 1 in 5 children are diagnosed with dyslexia. "She's part of the tribe!" Henry happily said before turning directly to the camera, saying, "River! How you learn has nothing to do with how brilliant you are." We're not crying, you're crying!
Leaving for sanity
At the height of her career, Rachel McAdams temporarily said goodbye to acting. The reason, she now says, was to stay "sane." "I felt guilty for not capitalizing on the opportunity that I was being given because I knew I was in such a lucky spot," she told Bustle in a new interview. "But I also knew it wasn't quite jiving with my personality and what I needed to stay sane." Following the success of "The Notebook" and "Mean Girls," Rachel fled Hollywood and moved home to Toronto. During that time away from the spotlight, the Canada native passed on major roles in "The Devil Wears Prada," "Casino Royale," "Mission: Impossible III," "Iron Man" and "Get Smart." "There were definitely some anxious moments of wondering if I was just throwing it all away, and why was I doing that?" she confessed. "It's taken years to understand what I intuitively was doing." The hiatus, however, left her feeling "empowered." "I guess I always had a sense that it would be OK; either it's going to work out or it's not," she said. "It helped me feel like I was taking back some control. And I think it sort of allowed me to come in from a different doorway."
Aaron Carter's ex isn't buying what the autopsy report is selling. On Tuesday, April 18, the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner revealed that Aaron drown in his bathtub in November 2022 after taking prescription pills and huffing compressed air. Per TMZ, the report says the singer became "incapacitated while in the bathtub due to the effects" of the drugs and the huffing. Ultimately, Aaron slipped under the water and drowned. Aaron's death is officially ruled accidental. Still, Melanie Martin, with whom Aaron shares a child with, claimed the report only sparked more questions. "The results of the autopsy are not closure for me. It claims death is by drowning but also adds he was wearing a t-shirt and necklace in the bathtub which doesn't make sense, why would he be in a bathtub with clothes on? I am still in shock and still miss Aaron every day," she told the webloid. "I don't understand the chain of events and this report only has us asking more questions."
Ghosted… but worse
Even the "Sexiest Man Alive" has suffered relationship woes. Chris Evans, People magazine's reigning Sexiest Man Alive, recalled being ghosted by a potential suitor — or as he says, it was much worse. "I feel I've experienced something much worse [than ghosting]," he told People. "I think I'd prefer being ghosted because you can make up any story you want. I've had the slow decline in text responses, and you just know the person is pushing you aside casually." Chris didn't reveal the identity of the person who continually put him on the back burner. Asked how he coped with the jilting, he said, "You tell yourself a story, whatever you have to do to get by."
Although Shanna Moakler claims she wishes the best for her ex Travis Barker and his wife Kourtney Kardashian, she hints that there's still tension. On Instagram, a Shanna fan took issue with Travis and Kourtney's Hulu wedding special. "I hope that you get a huge apology some day for what was said on that exploitative, money grabbing, circus. 'He's been through Hell' 'Kourtney has filled a void for me.' #parentalalienationawareness," the person wrote. Shanna "liked" the comments. Another person cringed that Kourtney identified herself on Twitter as a "mom of 6." Shanna commented, "She post[s] more of my kids then [SIC] her own lol." There seems to be some ill will there still.
