Kourtney Kardashian trolled over Reign's hair
An innocent post about online holiday shopping in the warm, California sun, got Kourtney Kardashian a whole lot of negative feedback over the weekend. Sharing a photo of herself surfing the web by the pool with her 3-year-old son, Kourtney wrote, "Christmas shopping," seemingly in reference to the irony of wearing a bathing suit while buying Christmas presents. What commenters focused on, however, was not so much on Kourt's holiday shopping list as it was on her youngest's hair, which he's worn long for months, and the fact that he didn't have a towel after climbing out of the water. While some fans complimented the toddler's locks, plenty of others accused Kourtney of being negligent. "Cut his hair. So rediculous [sic]," one user wrote (via People). "And don't state that he wants it that long. Dear god, he is a child, he does not know any better. You did the same with Mason. What is your point?" Another demanded to know if the mother of three wasn't "gonna do something" about her son, saying he "looks freezing." As the comments from trolls continued to pile up, a few folks defended Kourtney and Reign, posing things like, "He's a little boy for goodness sake…long hair, short hair, no hair…does it really matter?" For her part, Kourtney let the nasty posts slide, staying mum on both the length of his hair and his body temperature — and perhaps with good reason. The high in Los Angeles on Saturday, Nov., 24, when she posted the shot, was in the upper '70s. Cue up those eye roll Emojis …
Shawn Mendes admits he and Hailey Baldwin were more than just friends
Sounds like there was more to Hailey Baldwin and Shawn Mendes' relationship, after all. The two attended the Met Gala together in May, fueling chatter about a possible romance despite Hailey's assertion there was nothing going on. A few months later, of course, she married Justin Bieber in a New York City courthouse, leaving fans a bit confused about the nature of her friendship with her Met Gala sidekick. Finally, Shawn was asked to explain the situation during an interview for Rolling Stone's new cover story. As the writer puts it, "he acknowledges they were more than friends, but he's still reluctant to call it a relationship." What Shawn did say was that he didn't want to "put a title on it." Calling it "more of a zone of limbo," he continued: "I get it, you know. I texted Hailey, 'Congratulations,' and I really am happy for [their marriage]. She's still one of the f—— coolest people ever — she's not just a beautiful person visually, but she's one of the most beautiful hearts I've ever met. I think I'm an idiot to not, you know …But you can't control your heart."

Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski tie the knot in Washington, D.C.
Introducing the new Mr. and Mrs. Scarborough! "Morning Joe" hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough said "I do" on Saturday, Nov. 24 in possibly the most a propos place possible — the National Archives, where the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights are housed in Washington, D.C. "We wanted it to be really small and simple and not what you expected from Mika and Joe," Mika told Vanity Fair. "Everything we do is exposed, and everything felt exposed every step of the way, so we want this to be private until it's over. We wanted to recognize it more quietly and have the people who are most important to us around us." The pair said they decided to marry at the National Archives after attending an event there and realizing how "blown away" they "felt seeing them," Mika said. Joe noted that their decision to get married involved a commitment to having "a low-key existence" so they could spend more time with their family inspite of their high-profile relationship. Democratic Maryland Congressman Elijah Cummings served as the officiant. "He's a representative of the movement forward," Mike explained, "of getting the country back." Vocal critics of Donald Trump's White House, Mika and Joe reportedly got engaged last year. Asked if she planned to change her name after the wedding, Mika told Vanity Fair, "Yup."

John Mayer posts another flirtatious comment on Halsey's Instagram feed
Nothing to see here, folks, just another flirty comment registered by John Mayer on Halsey's Instagram … A new video from Halsey shows her playing guitar. It's captioned, "This Is Your Brain on Writer's Block: everything I write today sounds like my Myspace song in 2008 or a poorly disguised Beatles rip-off. Someone send help." ET noticed it didn't take long for the singer's pal, John, to offer his services. "I can be over to break your heart in 20?" he asked in the comments. In recent weeks, John's habit of getting flirty with the newly single star sparked a wave of romance rumors. Halsey assured listeners on SiriusXM's "The Morning Mashup" that her relationship with John is platonic, but that hasn't quite turned off the rumor mill's buzz about the two. "The craziest thing was too, is I tweeted him and I was like, 'Imagine this, right: two people are just friends. That's crazy,'" she said at time. "We've been friends for a couple years and he's really funny and smart and he gave me a lot of really good advice about staying true to myself," she explained. "The thing about him is he's a musician. He's an instrumentalist. He's one of the greatest… probably the greatest guitar player my generation has to offer. He's a songwriter and he's so, so talented."
Fans rush the stage, causing 'chaos' as The Weeknd performs in Dubai with Bella Hadid watching from the wings
The Weeknd and Bella Hadid spent the holiday weekend visiting Dubai, where Bella has family and her "Starboy" beau had a gig at the Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. And while both stars posted on social media about their love for the city and the event, things were less rosy for some members of the audience, thanks to the "chaos" that reportedly took place at the venue when hundreds of would-be concert-goers began "breaking down barricades and storming toward the stage" after being blocked at the gates, according to the New York Post. "Scenes of chaos unfolded as the concert began with hundreds of fans still cordoned off outside the gates," Arabian Business reported. Explaining the situation, promoters for the show told the Post, "Due to a large number of fans arriving simultaneously to The Weeknd concert, the gates were closed as a safety measure." It seems the gates' closing triggered the crowd rush.
Victoria Beckham is launching her own vlog
Victoria Beckham may be avoiding the spotlight when it comes to the Spice Girls reunion tour, but she's doing quite the opposite these days in the world of fashion. After celebrating her eponymous line's 10-year anniversary and making her New York Fashion Week debut in 2018, the designer announced on Saturday, Nov. 24, she's launching her own vlog on Youtube. The channel, which Victoria described as "a new chapter" in her life, will feature "beauty tutorials, styling tips and lots of stuff from me," she told her followers on Instagram over the weekend. Produced in collaboration with fashion writer and editor Derek Blasberg, the first video was reportedly shot in September in New York City.
Catherine Zeta-Jones says she and her familey were 'devastated' by Michael Douglas sexual assault allegations
From Catherine Zeta-Jones' perspective, the #MeToo Movement suffers every time someone makes a false sexual harassment or assault allegation. In a new interview with the Times of London, the actress — who's been married to Michael Douglas for 18 years — opens up about how journalist Susan Braudy's claims Michael once masturbated in front of her during a meeting have affected her and her family. "My children and I were profoundly devastated by those allegations. And I was torn about where my absolute morals lie," she said (via Us Weekly). "This woman came out of nowhere and accused my husband. I had a very big conversation with him, with the kids in the room, and said, 'Do you understand if more comes out …'" After the allegation surfaced, Michael called it "a complete lie, fabrication, no truth to it whatsoever," according to the Wall Street Journal. Added Catherine: "There was nothing to back it up at all. For any accusation that comes out that isn't backed up, that knocks the movement back 20 years."
Kaley Cuoco and Karl Cook celebrate their second 'annual Disneyland adventure'
When Kaley Cuoco and her husband, Karl Cook, got engaged last year, they headed to the Most Magical Place on Earth to celebrate. Turns out, the two are committed to having what Kaley calls an "annual Disneyland adventure." This year's visit took place on Sunday, Nov. 25 — less than a week ahead of the "Big Bang Theory" star's 33rd birthday. According to TMZ, Kaley brought a slew of friends and family members along, too. A ride on Splash Mountain was reportedly among the group's Mickey Mouse-focused activities. Kaley and Karl, meanwhile, capped off the day of fun with a smooch, which she later posted on Instagram alongside the caption, "Same place, same pose, same love, a year later 🧚♂️ 🏰 ♥️🐴🎄 how has so much happened since then? Thanks for marrying me, @mrtankcook 💏 #annualdisneyadventure."
Cher got so emotional at musical about her life she had to leave her seat
A new Broadway show about Cher's life made the singer "too emotional" to continue watching when she attended a preview performance earlier this month. That's according to the New York Post, which cites multiple sources as having noticed Cher split in the middle of the musical. It seems she found "The Cher Show" at the Neil Simon Theatre to be too much to handle as wildfires were simultaneously threatening to destroy her home in Malibu, California. "Cher hadn't seen the show in a while because she'd been touring," said one insider. "She came to a Broadway preview earlier this month, and left her seat before the intermission. She was surprised by some of the changes they had made without her approval." A second insider said Cher told producers "what wasn't real and what changes she wanted" before the production's Dec. 3 opening. The second source added that Cher didn't actually leave the theater, she'd simply moved to the wings, where she could watch without anyone seeing her. "Her home was about to burn down, and there she was witnessing the most difficult moments of her life being played out," the insider said. In June, when Cher saw previews of the Chicago version of the musical, she told the Post: "Some parts of it are really fabulous … [but] it needs work .. I am actually pushing them to be more truthful about me … it would be silly for them to come up with a Mother Teresa." As for the New York City production, the first source says the singer "has calmed down and is giving notes to [director] Jason Moore, explaining. "Cher is a perfectionist. She is insisting on changes to the dialogue, music, costumes, even the makeup. She went back the other night and stayed for the full show." Cher's rep basically confirmed the sentiment, telling the Post the whole thing is "very emotional Cher" but that's she's "happy with the production" and is "working with [team] to fine tune it."
Nicki Minaj's mom served with papers in lingering lawsuit
A breach of contract lawsuit filed against Nicki Minaj in 2017 may move forward soon following a long period of being on hold. The Blast reports Cahuenga, Inc. filed a request to count the papers they served Nicki's mom with as being the same as serving Nicki herself. It seems the company — which wants more than $53,000 from Nicki for allegedly not fulfilling her end of a deal to appear at an NBA All-Star event in 2011 — has been trying to get their suit to proceed for months but has been stymied by being unable to serve Nicki directly. On Oct. 25, the company claims it managed to serve Nicki's mother, Carol Minaj, at a home Nicki owns in New York state. The company says that Nicki's "bodyguards and personal security" have prevented them from getting the papers to her, personally, adding that it "has been unable to identify a specific location that can be defined as Defendant's actual place of business." In the suit, Cahuenga, Inc. says it lost money on the All-star event because Nicki showed up an hour and a half later than she was scheduled to arrive, and stayed at the event for less than 30 minutes despite being contracted to stay for an hour. The company has asked a judge to order that service of the papers is now complete so that the suit can get underway. News of the filing comes on the heels of Nicki and Carol's good deed-filled Thanksgiving, when they passed out free turkeys in their hometown borough of Queens in New York City.
