Almost Divorced

Kendra Wilkinson settles divorce with Hank Baskett: Report

After years of tumult and scandal, Kendra Wilkinson is almost a single woman again.

The Blast reports a new filing in her divorce from Hank Baskett has settled all the custody, support and property issues remaining in their marriage of 11 years. According to documents excerpted by the outlet, the two are now just waiting for the judge handling their case to sign off on it before they can go their separate ways.

News of the filing comes two weeks after Kendra announced on Oct. 15 that she'd signed her "last divorce paper," a moment she called "brutal," given her efforts to make things work with the former NFL player.

"I gave it all I got. Truly did. I'm beyond proud of myself!! Fought to save til the last second," she wrote at the time, adding, "Oh well. Life goes on. Bye lol."

Negotiations in the divorce have seemed relatively calm since Kendra filed in April, citing irreconcilable differences.

Hank followed up her filing on the same day with the same claims as far as why they were calling it quits. They also both asked for joint legal and physical custody of their two kids, Hank, 8, and Mary, 4, according to The Blast.

Kendra's split announcement was similarly balanced.

"Today is the last day of my marriage to this beautiful man. I will forever love Hank and be open but for now we have chosen to go our own ways," she wrote in a social media post. "I'm beyond sad and heartbroken because I did believe in forever, that's why I said yes but unfortunately too much fear has gotten in the way. We are both amazing parents and our kids will be happy n never know the difference other than seeing mama smile."

Since then, the former Playboy model and longtime reality star has been "talking to a bunch of different guys and having fun" while "enjoying the dating scene," a source told People in September.

While many of Kendra and Hank's more loving and united moments were caught on camera for "Kendra on Top," there were also quite a few bumps along the way for the two, not the least of which was the scandal Hank was caught in when he was accused of cheating on a then very pregnant Kendra with a transgender model in June 2014. He later acknowledged having been in the same room as the model but said that's where their interaction ended.

When Kendra and Hank appeared on "Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars" the following year, it became clear they had some serious issues to work out.

As of their March divorce filings, they were "still talking" but "mostly for the [sake of] the kids," according to People.

Marriage v election

Kim Kardashian has 'begged' Kanye to end presidential run: Report

Kim Kardashian West is voting for her husband Kanye West to end his White House run.

Amid a report that Kim is working to save their six-year marriage, she is also said to be urging him to end his long-shot presidential bid for the sake of their family. Kanye, however, has gone the complete opposite direction.

"Kim begged Kanye to stop his presidential thing, to stop talking about their kids at rallies. But he ignored her and instead he went ahead and hired more people … and tried to register in more states," a source told Page Six, adding that Kanye "just won't stop" in his desire to become the next POTUS.

Kanye announced on Twitter on July 4 that he's running for President of the United States. At the time, Kim showed her support by re-tweeting his announcement with an American flag emoji. Now, she sees that presidential bid as a huge hinderance to the family, particularly after Kanye's emotional campaign rally in South Carolina in July — during which he revealed that he and Kim discussed aborting their first pregnancy.

He then tweeted that he has been eyeing a divorce from the "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star. He later deleted the tweet and apologized publicly to Kim, who's said he's in the midst of a bipolar episode.

Kim and Kanye have reportedly been living separate lives for a while now. According to reports, he's been in Los Angeles with their kids, while he's been living at their $14 million ranch in Wyoming. Multiple reports said he was ignoring Kim's calls for several days, but the duo reunited briefly in Wyoming last week. It didn't look like a happy reunion, though — photos showed her crying while they appeared to be involved in a heated discussion.

"This is a nightmare for Kim, she is looking for a way out. But she's also a nice person and wants to do the best for her kids," Page Six's source said.

On Aug. 2, photos emerged showing Kanye and son Saint boarding a private plane in Wyoming. Hours later, TMZ — citing sources close to the West family — reported that Kim and Kanye are taking "a private family vacation to try and work things out." The duo haven't "seen each other much at all for months," the webloid reported.

According to TMZ, the vacation is something the couple talked about while Kim was in Wyoming days earlier, and it "will be a time for [Kanye] to prove … he's willing to change for his family."

Portia de Rossi thanks fans for support amid Ellen DeGeneres controversy

While Ellen DeGeneres continues to fight off allegations of demeaning behavior toward staff and even guests on her eponymous talk show, Portia is publicly coming to her aid.

On Monday, the "Arrested Development" actress posted an Instagram that read, "I STAND BY ELLEN." 

"To all our fans….we see you. Thank you for your support. #stopbotattacks," Portia captioned the post, adding a slew of hashtags, including "I Stand With Ellen DeGeneres," "I Stand By Ellen," "I Stand By Ellen DeGeneres" and Ellen's catchphrase "be kind to one another."

The catchphrase has been essentially ridiculed for months as former staff members and guests have said Ellen is anything but "kind" behind the scenes. Since March, a barrage of less-than-flattering stories have been shared about the host of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show."

The allegations of workplace hostility have become so severe that WarnerMedia launched an internal investigation into conditions at Ellen's eponymous talk show.

WarnerMedia, which owns Warner Bros. Television, the distributor of Ellen's show, sent a memo to staffers indicating that current and former employees would be asked about their experiences on set, Variety reported. The interviews will be conducted by WarnerMedia's employee relations group and a third-party firm.

On July 30, just hours before BuzzFeed News published a story claiming the talk show is rife with sexual harassment and misconduct by top executive producers, Ellen issued an apology for unspecified transgressions and promised to "correct the issues."

In the letter, which was obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, Ellen explained that she's now realized the show hadn't been "a place of happiness" for some staffers. 

"As we've grown exponentially, I've not been able to stay on top of everything and relied on others to do their jobs as they knew I'd want them done. Clearly some didn't. That will now change and I'm committed to ensuring this does not happen again," she wrote.

After referencing the struggles she faced after coming out as a gay woman in the '90s, she said, "It's been way too long, but we're finally having conversations about fairness and justice. We all have to be more mindful about the way our words and actions affect others, and I'm glad the issues at our show were brought to my attention. I promise to do my part in continuing to push myself and everyone around me to learn and grow. It's important to me and to Warner Bros. that everyone who has something to say can speak up and feels safe doing so."

Kim Kardashian's BFF claims he was robbed at gunpoint

Jonathan Cheban, who's a fixture on "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," claims he was robbed at gunpoint over the weekend in New Jersey.

TMZ reports Kim Kardashian West's BFF told authorities he was hanging out in the driveway of a friend's home with his mom on Sunday night when a man approached and asked for the time. The man quickly pulled out a gun and pointed it at Jonathan, his mother and his friend.

Jonathan told police that the man moved the trio between cars to trap them while the gun was squarely pointed at his mother's head. After pleading with the gunman to release them, Jonathan gave the man his Richard Mille watch, which is reportedly worth about $250,000.

A second gunman was also reportedly on the scene as a lookout. 

The incident ended after neighbors heard the commotion and began investigating. The two men — neither of whom were apparently wearing masks — quickly ran off on foot, TMZ reports.

Jonathan is expected to meet with police to come up with a sketch of the crooks.

According to his Instagram Story, Jonathan was shopping with his mother earlier in the day.

Brian Austin Green dishes on post-marriage love life: 'It sucks'

While Megan Fox quickly found love after her split from Brian Austin Green, his attempts to get back out there haven't been quite so successful.

"It sucks," the former "Beverly Hills, 90210" star said of his suddenly public love life during an appearance on Dax Holt and Adam Glyn's "Hollywood Raw" podcast. "What people normally do when they get out of something is they date. They talk to multiple people at once. Some people use dating apps — they talk to multiple people, they go on multiple dates. They spend time with people until you feel a connection with somebody then something builds from there."

"What's unfortunate for me in this situation is I'll literally go on one date with someone — not even a date, just out to lunch with somebody — and it's written, 'His new fling — he's playing two women at the same time,'" he said. "No. I literally spent one time with each of these women. I'm not playing anybody. My life is just much more under a microscope than somebody else's."

After splitting from Megan (who has gone on to date Machine Gun Kelly), Brian has been seen with Courtney Stodden and model Tina Louise. He met both women on Instagram, he said.

"I remember when I hung out with Courtney getting a call from somebody afterward saying, 'There are pictures of you and Courtney Stodden,' and I was like, 'How do you know her name?' I had no idea who she was or any of the past anything," he said. "I had done no research at all. It wasn't until I was told, 'This is the past. This is who this person is. This is what you might have to experience.'"

Brian now says he wishes he was aware of Courtney's past before the date.

"Courtney was a really nice person, though. I don't want to bad-mouth her. She may have done some of the things she's done, been the person she's been, is the person she is, but when I spent time with her, [she was] super-kind, super-polite," he said.

The actor did acknowledge that he felt "betrayed" by her when she posted a video of them together in a hot tub. The video, he says, was posted "out of context."

The video also had an adverse effect on his short-lived romance with Tina.

"So, Tina is really cool. Tina is really an intelligent woman. She is the one who approached me and she said to me, 'With the craziness going around you and Megan and the whole situation, I think what would be best for you is to take some time with just your kids and yourself and really work on just being alone and healing yourself and going through that,'" he recalled. "That was cool coming from her. She didn't need to say something like that. She didn't have to say something that would exclude so much from my life."

He added, "I've been single this whole time. Dating, I guess. I'm open to meeting somebody, but my focus is on myself and healing with all of this and my kids and them experiencing it the best way that they can," he explained. "I can't really put a label on what I'm doing — it's different. What I'm doing compared to how it's been portrayed are two completely different things."

Gisele Bundchen pens birthday love note to 'best friend' Tom Brady

Gisele Bundchen is throwing a lot of birthday love to her husband Tom Brady, who turned 43 on Aug. 3. 

On Monday, the supermodel took to Instagram to gush about the NFL stud, sharing one image of the quarterback relaxing outdoors, and another photo with their two children, Benjamin, 10, and Vivian, 7.

"Happy birthday love of my life!" Gisele captioned the photo. "You are the best dad, the best partner and the best friend. We are so lucky to have you in our lives and we are looking forward to all the adventures ahead. We love you so much!"

Seeing the tribute, Tom replied, "I love my family and thanks for always taking care of us! We are so blessed!"

Along with several heart emojis, he added, "Can't wait to have you home."

"Home" for the time being is Florida — Tom signed a two-year $50 million contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers earlier this year. While waiting for the 2020 football season to start, TB12 rented Derek Jeter's 30,000-square-foot mansion.

Year of the mobile quarterback…

A post shared by Tom Brady (@tombrady) on

While Monday was a day of celebration and love, Tom was gently ribbed on social media just days before for one of his accessories.

On Saturday, Tom shared a photo from inside his car to indicate the 99-degree temperature. Many fans overlooked the temperature and the Michael Jackson song he was listening to after noticing that Tom still uses an iPhone 6+, which came out six years ago.

"Tom Brady, the most successful athlete in football, still only has an iPhone 6+???" one person wrote. Another added, "Tom Brady has all the money in the world and he still has an iPhone 6+.. the ones that malfunction and die if it's under or over 70 degrees."

There is a theory that Tom knows exactly what he's doing and the "6+" is a nod to his Super Bowl rings.

'Uphill battle'

Kim Kardashian, Kanye West trying to save marriage with family vacation: Report

Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West are working to save their six-year marriage, a new report claims. But it's a "massive uphill battle," TMZ reports.

Matt Baron/Shutterstock

In July — amid reports that he and Kim were having problems and that he was in the midst of a bipolar episode — the rapper-designer tweeted and deleted that he'd been "trying to get divorced" for months.

Then Kanye — who on July 19 shocked fans when he revealed during his first presidential campaign rally that he and Kim had initially planned to abort their eldest child, 7-year-old daughter North West — publicly apologized to the reality TV star and beauty brand mogul. He tweeted on July 25, "I would like to apologize to my wife Kim for going public with something that was a private matter. I did not cover her like she has covered me. To Kim I want to say I know I hurt you. Please forgive me. Thank you for always being there for me."

After days of reportedly being ghosted by her husband, Kim flew to see Kanye in Cody, Wyoming — where he's been living on his $14 million ranch — and was photographed in the midst of what appeared to be a heated discussion with the music star on July 27. Photos of Kim in the car with Kanye show her crying.

On Aug. 2, photos emerged showing Kanye and son Saint boarding a private plane in Wyoming and hours later, TMZ — citing sources close to the West family — reported that Kim and Kanye are taking "a private family vacation to try and work things out." According to TMZ, the vacation is something the couple talked about when Kim was in Wyoming days earlier.

Aside from this family getaway, TMZ writes, "Kim and Kanye hadn't spent much time together outside family birthdays and holidays." The couple — who reunited in Wyoming for North's birthday in June — have not, TMZ explains, "seen each other much at all for months" as Kanye's been at his ranch and Kim's been based in California with their four children.

According to TMZ, this vacation "will be a time for [Kanye] to prove … he's willing to change for his family."

Twin Deliveries!

Nikki Bella welcomed her son one day before twin sister Brie Bella gave birth

Talk about twinning! Following Sunday's news Brie Bella and Daniel Bryan welcomed a baby boy on Saturday, Brie's twin sister Nikki Bella announced she and her fiance, Artem Chigvintsev, became parents to a son of their own just one day prior.

Rob Latour/Shutterstock

"7/31/2020 … Our baby boy is here and we couldn't be HAPPIER and more in LOVE!" Nikki, 36, wrote on Instagram Sunday, posting a shot of her own hand entwined with those of Artem, 38, and their little one. The picture mirrored the one Brie had shared less than two hours earlier.

"Everyone is safe and healthy," Nikki added.

The "Total Bellas" stars revealed in January that they were due within two weeks of one another.

"Knowing us our babies will come the same day too lol!!!" Brie joked to Nikki on Instagram after their pregnancy announcements.

Brie, who also shares a 3-year-old daughter, Birdie, with her husband Daniel, acknowledged to People earlier this year that some fans would probably assume their joint stork news was "planned." She said it was not and that the subs were "shocked" to find out they'd be welcoming kids at almost the same time.

The sisters have spent much of the past nine months sharing twin-updates on social media with their fans. Nikki, who is a first-time mom, has especially seemed to relish the experience of being pregnant at the same time as her sister.

While Brie and Daniel chose not to learn their baby's gender ahead of time, Nikki and Artem found out they were having a boy in June.

Congrats all around!

Teresa Giudice's daughters cancel plans to visit Joe in Italy

With the coronavirus pandemic still raging across the U.S., it's unlikely Joe Giudice will see his four daughters anytime soon.

Curtis Means/Ace Pictures/REX/Shutterstock

According to Hollywood Life, Gia Giudice, 19, Gabriella Giudice, 16, Milania Giudice, 15 and Audriana Giudice, 11, were supposed to travel to Italy next week to see their dad, who's been living there while appealing a 2018 deportation order.

RELATED: Teresa Giudice reunites with Caroline Manzo after long feud

Thanks to a maze of pandemic-related travel restrictions on Americans and their mom, Teresa Giudice's concern for their health, however, the girls' trip appears to have been canceled.

"Teresa's daughters are really disappointed they can't go to Italy to see Joe in August," a source close to the family tells the outlet. The insider adds that, "Teresa's biggest concern is obviously COVID and the kids."

RELATED: Stars we've lost to the coronavirus

Last week, the European Union extended its ban on the entry of travelers from the United States. And while some loopholes allow family members to visit relatives, the girls don't appear to qualify, based on current restrictions.

Prior to Joe's relocation, he served 41 months in prison on fraud charges. Although he'd spent his life since age 1 in the U.S., he was born in Italy and never technically acquired American citizenship. The felonies on his record made him subject to deportation — and he has so far lost three appeals in his fight to return home.

The "Real Housewives of New Jersey" stars are still reportedly optimistic they'll be able to reunite with Joe in October, though.

That's when he's slated to participate in a celebrity boxing match against Ojani Noa (Jennifer Lopez's ex-husband) in the Bahamas. Teresa, who joined her kids on a trip to see Joe in November, is expected to go, as well.

A Bahamas trip seems slightly more feasible than Italy, but it's not without complications. After previously barring Americans from entering the country, the Bahamas recently announced it will allow travelers from the U.S. to visit as long as they apply for a health visa, test negative for COVID-19 within 10 days of their trip and quarantine for two weeks upon arrival, according to USA Today.

"It's all still up in the air and that's really upsetting for the girls," says HL's source. "They haven't seen their dad in months and this is really, really hard for them."

In the meantime, they're making the best of a rough summer, courtesy of some family time on the New Jersey coast.

Brie Bella and Daniel Bryan welcome their second child

The Bella family keeps on growing!

"Total Bellas" star Brie Bella, 36, and her husband, Daniel Bryan, 39, announced on Instagram Sunday that their second child was born over the weekend.

"It's a BOY!!! 💙 8-1-2020," the former WWE wrestler posted, sharing a photo of the little one as she held him in her arms. In the sweet photo, she also holds hands with Daniel as their baby clutches on to his mama's fingers.

"We are overwhelmed with joy and everyone is healthy!!!" she added.

Less than two hours after Brie's announcement, her twin sister and "Total Bellas" costar, Nikki Bella, revealed she had some baby news, too. Turns out Nikki and her fiance, "Dancing With the Stars" pro Artem Chigvintsev, welcomed their first child together on Friday.

Brie and Daniel's new baby boy joins 3-year-old big sister, Birdie Joe.

Speaking to Nikki on the twins' podcast last year, Brie revealed she'd struggled with postpartum depression after giving birth to Birdie. "I didn't want to lose the old Brie and I really didn't want to lose my identity," she said at the time.

Eventually, the depression passed and she and Daniel decided they wanted to have another child.

As Brie would later recount to People, she and Daniel tried to conceive for the better part of a year with no luck. Brie said she'd she'd started to believe a sibling for Birdie was simply not in the cards — then, in 2019, she found out she was pregnant.

In a joint announcement in January, Brie and Nikki revealed that both twins were expecting — and due within two weeks of one another.
