Kendall Jenner gets a restraining order against a new alleged stalker
Add Thomas Hummel to the growing list of men required by law to stay away from Kendall Jenner. TMZ reports the model and reality star was granted a restraining order against the California man this week after she received multiple letters attacking her and her mother, Kris Jenner. The mostly unprintable contents of the letters took aim at Kendall's rumored boyfriend A$AP Rocky and included stories about Thomas seeing "and falling in love with" Kendall at a post office in 2008 and a Costco in 1998. (Fun fact: She was 3 in 1998.) A judge has ordered Thomas to stop contacting Kendall and stay 100 feet away from her.
Jennifer Aniston and Chelsea Handler's alleged feud has their famous friends taking sides: report
Are these two calling it quits as pals? Radar claims they are — and that friends in their circle are taking Jen's side. "Jennifer found out that Chelsea was spilling secrets about her marriage, and talking behind her back," an insider told Radar last week. According to the website Jen's "staunchly loyal friends," including Courteney Cox, Jason Bateman and Ellen DeGeneres "are not interested in hanging with Chelsea" either because of her alleged falling out with Jen. "Chelsea's trying to organize a huge Halloween party right now, even though it's over three months away," the source dished. "She's sent out tentative invites asking people to hold the dates, but the silence has been deafening, and a few have gone so far as to coldly decline."

Heidi Klum's kids can't show their faces on social media
Look for Heidi Klum and Seal's kids on social media and you'll only see the backs of their heads — or Emojis covering their faces. As Heidi explained on "Live!" this week, that's because she doesn't let Leni, Lou, Johan and Henry show their faces on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. Admitting she's "definitely" over-protective, Heidi told Ryan Seacrest and Kelly Ripa (via People), "My oldest daughter [Leni] is 13 and she wants to post her face and I always say, 'No, you're not allowed to.' Whenever she's in it, it has to be from the back or [having her face concealed]. It's different when we do it — I feel like we're grown-ups — but I want to try and keep them children as long as possible."
Emilia Clarke was psyched about her sex scene with Michael Huisman
With her second-to-last season as Daenerys Targaryen ready to air this weekend, Emilia Clarke is stressed out about nailing her final episodes as the mother of dragons. 'Oh God, I get sleepless nights over it," she recently told Elle when asked about shooting the eight season. "'Oh, you're gonna mess it up. It's the last season, and it's going to go wrong.' My mates are like, 'It's you—you [and Daenerys] are one and the same now. You need to trust your instincts!' And I'm like, ' No, I've got to do more research!' The higher everyone places the mantle, the bigger the fall. That sounds really awful, but it's true! I don't want to disappoint anyone." One thing the British star is less stressed out about? That time her character slept with Michael Huisman's Daario onscreen. "It's brilliant. I actually went up to [GOT co-creators David Benioff and Dan Weiss] and thanked them," she said. "I was like, 'That's a scene I've been waiting for!' Because I get a lot of crap for having done nudes scenes and sex scenes. That, in itself, is so antifeminist. Women hating on other women is just the problem. That's upsetting, so it's kind of wonderful to have a scene where I was like, 'There you go!'"
Christopher Nolan explains why Harry Styles isn't really in 'Dunkirk' trailers
Why isn't Harry Styles at the center of every trailer for his first feature film, "Dunkirk," you ask? Because director Christopher Nolan doesn't want you going all fangirl or boy and missing the point of the movie. "We're not trying to oversell Harry in the movie for the specific reason that it's an ensemble," Nolan recently told EW. "We don't want people who are huge fans of his being disappointed that he's not in it enough." He added: "I think what Harry does is extremely subtle because it's very real. It's not cartoonish. It's not obvious. He really taps into the reality of the situation. It's a subtle performance. It almost risks being missed because what it's actually doing. I think it's a great character for him, and I think he did an incredible job." The World War II-era film hits theaters July 20.
Karrueche Tran hit with pregnancy rumors
"Baby's hungry." That's all Karrueche Tran wrote in the caption to an Instagram photo of her at the beach eating a burger this week, but it was enough to launch a rumor among her Instagram followers that she's pregnant. "Quavo's baby …?" asked one user. Others teased the actress and former model with comments like, "someone's pregnant." Karrueche, who got a restraining order against her ex Chris Brown earlier this year after he allegedly beat her and threatened her repeatedly, is reportedly dating Quavo, although she denied the rumor and said she was single in June.
Miley Cyrus feels 'far away' from the person she was a few years ago
Miley Cyrus recently said her twerking, tongue-out phase was a reaction to being a child star without the kind of healthy outlets regular kids get for weird behavior. In the new issue of Harper's Bazaar, she says she barely relates to that version of herself. "I feel really kind of far away from that person. I just want people to see that this is who I am right now. I'm not saying I've never been myself. Who I was on the last record was really who I am. It's just myself has been a lot of different people because I change a lot," she says. "People get told that it's a bad thing to change. Like, people will say, 'You've changed.' And that's supposed to be derogatory. But you are supposed to change all the time." Her current transformation has been taking place amid what she describes as a "media blackout," which has given her a chance to reflect on her past. "There's so much I don't remember about being a child entertainer because it was so much to keep in my brain. It's like anything when you are in it. I didn't realize how much pressure I was under and how that shaped me until, like, this year," she says. As for the twerking and pasties phase? "People were so shocked by some of the things that I did. It should be more shocking that when I was 11 or 12, I was put in full hair and makeup, a wig, and told what to wear by a group of mostly older men. I didn't want to become any sort of man hater because I love all humans; I am a humanitarian,. Beyoncé said, 'Girls run the world,' and that was an important thing to say because I think subconsciously we are beaten down to believe that it isn't true our whole lives. It's no wonder that a lot of people lose their way and lose who they really are because they always have people telling them who to be."
Britney Spears won't play the Super Bowl in 2018

The head of sports marketing for PepsiCo announced on a panel at the Venues Now Conference in Los Angeles on Wednesday, July 12, implied a performer has already been picked. "I can tell you it's not Britney [Spears]," Justin Toman said, according to Variety. We'll reveal in due time." He added that "rumors" about the performer "always start around this time."
