Kelly Ripa leans on her daughter Lola for hair and wardrobe help
The pandemic has come for Kelly Ripa's wardrobe options. Kelly, 49, and Ryan Seacrest, 45, are now filming "Live with Kelly and Ryan" from their respective homes. And as Ryan pointed out on Tuesday, April 14, no contact with anyone outside the household sadly means no contact with stylists — or access to ABC's wardrobe department. The subject came up when Ryan told Kelly he's now "running out of things to wear," adding that his sweatshirt was so fresh off a recent online order that it still had the tag on it, according to People. Kelly, clad in a slim-fitting white blazer and white top, admitted, "I'm now in my daughter's clothes. It's gone there." The 49-year-old has been in quarantine with her family, including the source of her Tuesday on-air look, 18-year-old Lola Consuelos. Lola's not just behind her mom's outfits these days, either. Kelly also announced the teen just learned how to create beachy waves "using the tie of your bathrobe" by watching a TikTok glam video. "And my daughter did my hair!" she boasted. Kelly, who joked on Instagram last month about being on "Root Watch, Week 1," is doing her own color, though — with root touch-up spray "At this point, it's all spray because my hair is all gray," Kelly joked.

Gwyneth Paltrow's teenage daughter trolls her with Goop to-do list
Gwyneth Paltrow's at-home family quarantine has yielded some sweet moments, like the one Gwyneth showcased in a recent "WFH with moral support" selfie where she was flanked by her teenagers, Apple, 15, and Moses, 14. It's also yielded some sarcasm, courtesy of the Goop founder's eldest "#quaranteen." On Tuesday, April 14, Gwyneth posted a photo of some scrawled handwriting in a notebook. It read, "make more vagina eggs and candles," beneath which was a note about "finite only barely enough" and "scarcity model." "Apple's interpretation of my to-do list #quaranteen," Gwyneth wrote in the caption. Apple, of course, was making fun of her mom for the infamous jade eggs her website promoted using, er, intra-anatomically, shall we say? The "candles" mention was a nod to another questionable Goop-hawked product — the "This Smells Like My Vagina" candle. As InStyle reminds us, Gwyneth told Seth Myers the candles "sort of started with a joke" after she "smelled this beautiful thing and I said 'this smells like my vagina'!" She added: "I was kidding, obviously. And we were on mushrooms – no, we weren't, we weren't – but it became a thing that was really funny to us, but also a little bit punk rock. I think women, a lot of us, have grown up feeling certain degrees of shame around our bodies or whatever. So this is a little bit of a subversive candle for all of us out there."

Bruce Willis' decision to self-isolate with his ex Demi Moore and their three adult daughters rather than with his wife, Emma Heming, and their two young daughters, is no indication of marital problems for the action star. A source tells People that while the arrangement — which has popped up on social media, with Bruce, Demi and Emma all chatting and saying they miss and love one another — may surprise some, it's just the product of strong relationships all around. "Demi and Emma are close, and all three get on great as a big blended family. There are no issues at all. Emma needed to stay in L.A. with the young kids," a source close to the family tells the outlet. "Demi and Bruce have been best friends for years," adds the insider. "They are very close." Bruce shares Rumer, 31, Scout, 28, and Tallulah, 26, with Demi. He and Emma have two little girls, Mabel, 8, and Evelyn, 5.
Kanye West says he's voting for Donald Trump
Five years after he threatened to run for president himself — and just weeks after he told WSJ magazine he's not registered to vote and doesn't follow politics — Kanye West says he'll vote for Donald Trump in the 2020 election. The rapper and designer's affection for the president has made headlines for years. But April polls indicate Trump's lost fans recently due to his handling of the pandemic in the U.S., which now has both the highest COVID-19-related death toll in the world and the most expensive health care system in the world. Kanye, however, remains pro-Trump. Asked if he'd be "less vocal" about politics leading up to Nov. 4, Kanye recently told GQ: "No, I'm definitely voting this time. And we know who I'm voting on. And I'm not going to be told by the people around me and the people that have their agenda that my career is going to be over. Because guess what: I'm still here!" He went on to challenge critics who came after him for supporting Trump in the past. "I was told my career would end if I wasn't with [Hillary Clinton]. What kind of campaign is that, anyway? That's like if Obama's campaign was 'I'm with black.' What's the point of being a celebrity if you can't have an opinion? Everybody make their own opinion!" he said, adding, "I buy real estate. It's better now than when Obama was in office." Kanye's comments come less than 24 hours after the IMF announced the global economy is now in the worst "slump" since the Great Depression, according to CNN.
Cameron Diaz on being a new mom in quarantine and staying in the present
It's only been a few months since Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden welcomed their daughter Raddix, so for Cameron, there haven't been too many schedule changes due to the pandemic. "I love being a mother. It's the best, best, best part of my life," the 47-year-old told her fiend Katherine Power on Instagram Live (via People). "I'm so, so grateful and so happy and it's the best thing ever and I'm so lucky to get to do it with Benji and we're just having the best time," she gushed. "I've kinda been living a quarantine life anyhow because I have a three-month-old — or a three-and-a-half-month old. So my life has been completely quiet and still for the last few months. But I was able to have my friends over all the time. And now I just don't see anybody," she continued. "But it's nice, and I love a bubble, I love being in the womb of my home with my husband and cooking. But at the same time, it's crazy that you can't go out to the world right now." Cameron went on to say the family's days end with baby bath time, after which she pours herself "a nice glass of red wine" and makes dinner. "Benji puts her to bed, he's so good," she enthused. "He's such an amazing father. I'm so lucky he's my baby's daddy. He's so incredible. He puts her down and I go into the kitchen and I start dinner and I pour myself a nice glass of red wine. I start my cooking, I put on my show, whatever it is." Asked how she's coping with the scarier aspects of the pandemic, Cameron said she avoids thinking beyond the next two weeks. "The way I'm making it through this time is by staying in the present," she said. "I stay in the here and now."
Elizabeth McGovern says she once 'snogged' Brad Pitt
If Brad Pitt is an amazing kisser, he owes it all to Elizabeth McGovern — according to Elizabeth McGovern. The actress appeared on Kelly Clarkson's talk show this week with the rest of the "Downtown Abbey" cast and when the singer had them play "Sip It and Spill It," a game she likened to "Never Have I Ever," where whoever has done the activity in question, drinks — tea, because "Downtown Abbey." When Hugh Bonneville announced, "Sip it and spill it if you've ever snogged Brad Pitt," Kelly clarified that to snog is to make out with. Then Elizabeth drank. "What? What's that story?" Kelly asked (via People). "Somebody had to," Elizabeth deadpanned. According to Elizabeth, the snog they shared was actually "a paid job because we were on a set," before joking, "There are worse ways to earn a living, so I was not complaining. But yes, he cut his teeth with me, I think." Asked if Elizabeth was Brad's snogging teacher, Elizebeth quipped, "I made him the man that he is. He's learned everything from me!" She starred opposite Brad in 1994's "The Favor."
Alison Brie opens up about battling depression and BDD
For many of the characters on "GLOW," getting strong enough to throw another human around turned out to be good for the psyche as well as the bod. That was also the case for Alison Brie, who plays one of the '80s-era TV wrestlers on the show. "It helped with my relationship to my body times a million," she says in the new issue of Women's Health. "Before, I always felt at odds with it; I wanted it to be something it wasn't. But I didn't have the tools to do that in a healthy way." Since childhood, Alison has struggled with body dysmorphic disorder or BDD, an anxiety disorder in which people don't see their bodies as they look to others. "I go back to red carpet photos where I thought I looked so horrible, and there are some where I now think, God, I looked beautiful," she recalls. "And I'll remember: An hour before that I was in tears; I thought I was so disgusting. I think it's something I'll probably be working through my whole life. And depression too." For Alison, 37, depression "comes out of nowhere and really blindsides me." When it's really "serious," she says she tries to drag herself to a yoga class, "… even if I don't want to be around people, tears streaming down my face. But, Get in class, get out of your head, get blood flowing. It ends up helping eventually." The actress also reveals her maternal grandmother suffered from schizophrenia and was sometimes homeless, a situation that she says caused "trickle-down effects of trauma" usually depression, among other family members. Ultimately, though, she says she gets through those times largely because of her husband. Dave Franco, telling the magazine: "I'm so lucky I'm married to a really wonderful, open person. We have great lines of communication, and I can talk often about my feelings."
Nicki Minaj has not split from husband Kenneth Petty, despite name changes
Ever since Nicki Minaj rekindled her high school romance with Kenneth Petty, her fans have made it clear they're wary of his background, which includes convictions for the attempted rape of a minor and first-degree manslaughter. So when Nicki's social media handles suddenly changed from "Mrs. Petty," the name she took after the couple married in October, to "Barbie (on Instagram) and "YIKES" (on Twitter), some of those fans interpreted the update as meaning she'd split with her husband. According to Page Six, that's not the case. "Nicki Minaj is still with her man," one of multiple sources confirmed to the outlet. "It's just business as usual for her highness as she prepares to release new music."
John Legend urges NY governor to release inmates in the interest of healthier communities, state-wide
John Legend is urging New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to free inmates from prisons across the state in the interest of flattening the coronavirus curves there. The singer posted a video on Twitter this week in which he pointed out that allowing the virus to spread in jails and prisons "threatens the health and safety of" the rest of the state's citizens. "When someone is incarcerated, there is no such thing as social distancing, and ensuring good hygiene is not an option," he said, according to the New York Post. "Leaders must do everything possible to prevent incarcerated people, and those who work in prisons, from becoming ill and spending the virus." Asserting that it's "time for action," John asked the governor to take advantage of his ability to grant clemency "to people who are close to their release date, incarcerated for parole violations or especially vulnerable because of their age or underlying health conditions," in the interest of making communities across the state healthier.
