Kendall Jenner cheers on Blake Griffin in Los Angeles
The Los Angeles Clippers beat the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday, Oct. 19, 108 – 92, and one of the NBA's most fashionable fans was seated courtside, cheering on her man. Dressed casually in a taupe jacket, jeans and white crop top, Kendall Jenner hung out with a male friend and enjoyed some snacks during the game as she watched Blake Griffin slam a dunk and land a three-point shot. Blake and Kendall have been spending an increasing amount of time together since the summer, when her rumored non-exclusive fling with A$AP Rocky appeared to start fizzling.

Is Harvey Weinstein taking sex addiction rehab seriously?
In the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, the world is waking up to the role sexual harassment and assault have played in Hollywood for decades. But is Harvey himself awake? The New York Post claims the former producer has been sleeping during group therapy and yapping on a banned cell phone in his treatment for sex addiction. "In one group therapy session, Harvey arrived 15 minutes late. Then, when it was his turn to speak, he launched into a speech about how this is all a conspiracy against him," an insider told the tab. When others in the group shared their stories, the source said, "Harvey fell asleep in his chair. He was only woken up by the ringing of his smuggled mobile phone [which is banned at the facility] . . . Harvey jolted awake, jumped up, immediately took the call and then ran out of the room."
Courtney Love and Frances Bean Cobain fight request to publish Kurt Cobain death photos
Courtney Love and Frances Bean Cobain went to court this week to fight a request from a conspiracy theorist, Robert Lee, who wants to publish photos of the late musician taken shortly after he died. The images reportedly show "Kurt Cobain's body as it lay in the family residence after he was shot in the head." In court documents excerpted by The Blast, Courtney and Frances' lawyers say the photos' release "would not only exacerbate the posttraumatic stress Frances Bean Cobain has suffered since childhood but physically endanger her and her mother by encouraging more disturbed stalkers and fanatical threats." The images would cause "substantial and irreparable damage" if they were made public, the documents say. Robert has been investigating Kurt's death for more than 20 years and believes the government was involved.

Gerard Butler shares his bee venom mishap
It's probably fair to say bee-keeping is out as a career option option for Gerard Butler. The actor stopped by "Lorraine" this week and told the audience how he suffered swelling and pain as a result of the space suit he wore for weeks while shooting "Geostorm." Having been told of a potential cure, he sought it out — and ended up in the hospital. "I had heard of this guy that injected bee venom,' because apparently it has many anti-inflammatory compounds," he recalled (via the Daily Mail). "So he gives me a shot and I go, 'That's interesting.' Then he gives me 10 shots, then I have the worst reaction and I kind of enter this anaphylactic shock! It was terrible; creepy crawlies all over me, swelled up, heart's going to explode," he said, holding his neck. "He game me 10 times too much!" It turned out he was supposed to have been given 10 shots over a period of 10 weeks, not all at once. That didn't stop him from trying some more, though. "Four days later I decided to do it again because I think maybe I just took too much," he said. He didn't have any more luck and ended up in the hospital again. Not to be confused with his recent bike wreck, which also landed him in the hospital with a partially broken foot and a torn meniscus. Take it, easy, dude.
How Carrie Fisher's brother will mark her birthday
Carrie Fisher would have turned 61 on Saturday, Oct. 21, and the milestone gives her brother, Todd Fisher, reason to think about his late sister even more. "You can be sure that Billie and I will have a moment in reflection on Carrie's day," Todd told E! News this week. "I remember all the great things that she said and the example that she set for so many other women. I see people almost every day that come up to me and hug me and tell me what an amazing inspiration that she was, as a survivor and a woman who stood up for what she believes in. It's amazing how many people recognized her for that." he went on to call her "a great survivor, a great woman who stood up for what she believed in and spoke out clearly and so articulately like nobody I ever saw," adding that she was able to articulate her struggles in a unique way. "Was her life perfect?" he asked. "No. But whose is? It's not about that, it's about the example, it's about helping other people and with that in mind I think she did amazing things and accomplished as much as anybody."
Rose McGowan cancels all appearances following Weinstein scandal
Rose McGowan is laying low due to her involvement in allegations Harvey Weinstein harassed and assaulted dozens of women. The actress was bound not to discuss her own claim against him as part of a settlement agreement. She recently spoke anyway and argued with other members of the Hollywood elite in their role in supporting the producer. According to Celebitchy, Rose has since ditched plans to attend a ceremony honoring her at the Tallgrass Film Festival in Wichita, Kansas. The festival's spokespeople said in a statement that Rose canceled "all upcoming public appearances due to compounding factors surrounding recent revelations in the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment case." The organizers added: "While we're disappointed that Rose cannot be here with us in person, we understand that her well being is the priority. We support her and our thoughts are with her. We'll seize this opportunity to amplify her message and celebrate all the women filmmakers with works here at the 15th annual festival."

Add Mariah Carey to the growing list of celebs whose houses have been burglarized this year.

Mariah was in New York City at the time. Jason Derulo, Alanis Morissette, David Spade, Emmy Rossum and Scott Disick have also had their homes broken into this year.
Melanie Griffith opens up about how her divorce affected her epilepsy
Single life is good for the brain. That's the takeaway we're getting from Melanie Griffith's recent admission that filing for divorce from Antonio Banderas, her husband of 18 years, helped her stop having seizures. "It was an anomaly they didn't know what it was — I had these seizures," Griffith said, explaining how she learned she had epilepsy , according to the New York Post. "I never knew why it happened or what it meant or what it was going to do to me … nobody explained anything. … then the last two that I had — I was in a boat outside of Cannes, on a big yacht, and I was extremely stressed out … every seizure that I had was at a point where I was extremely stressed and I had two seizures … one they took me off the boat. I had this major grand mal seizure they took me to the hospital in Cannes, then brought me back to the boat and I had another seizure." Finally, she said, doctors in France saw a pattern. "… They started to look at it seriously … I was in France, that's where I got care, not here. And then when I came back, I was diagnosed with epilepsy, which no one had said to me over a period of 20 years … no one paid enough attention to diagnose me," she said. Eventually, she was given the right drug to stop the symptoms. "I haven't had a seizure, which is amazing," she said, "but I also got divorced, which I think is the real healer for me." At that, the whole room burst out in laughter. "I mean it!" Melanie said. "I am not stressed anymore!"

Sean said, according to the Daily Mail. "And what I had said to the press was that I was harassed.That I was sexually harassed by Warren Beatty. And she told me she thought that was disgusting."
