Lisa Rinna debuts a new look
After wearing her hair short, feathered and frosted brown for decades, Lisa Rinna debuted a blonde pixie look on Instagram on Friday, Nov. 30. "Just a little blonde moment last night," hair stylist Scott King captioned one shot of the "Real Housewives" star. Lisa seemed to be enjoying the new 'do, sharing pics of her newly flaxen locks on social media. But don't get too used to the new Lisa. After she shared a selfie from the car on Instagram Stories, someone apparently pointed out something was amiss. "Caught," Lisa wrote alongside one of the photos (via E! News). "Wig." It's not the first time the reality star's tried out something new, hair-wise, on a temporary basis. In January, she wore 14-inch long hair extensions during her appearance on "Watch What Happens Live." A few months later, she told fans on Instagram Stories she was trying to grow her hair out. Then this fall, Lisa appeared on the red carpet at the Rachel Zoe Spring/Summer 2019 runway show with a dark ponytail — which she also achieved via extensions.
Britney Spears packs on the PDA with Sam Asghari ahead of her birthday
"Guess whose birthday is coming up?" That's how a particularly chiseled-looking Sam Asghari captioned his latest PDA pic with Britney Spears on Instagram. Sam, who added the hashtag, "#princess" to the post, has been at Brit's side pretty much non-stop since the two started dating a few months after meeting on the set of her "Slumber Party" video. Though it wasn't love at first sight, Britney said in a 2017 radio interview that she ended up calling the personal trainer and model after finding his number in her bag. "I was like, 'He was really cute, this guy was really cute,' so I called him," she said at the time. "He's just a really fun, funny person." While engagement rumors have trailed the couple for some time, a wedding seems likely to take a back seat to the singer's upcoming residency at MGM Park in Las Vegas, which kicks off in February. Britney turns 37 on Sunday, Dec. 2.
Is Andrew Garfield dating Rita Ora?
Romance rumors have hit Rita Ora and Andrew Garfield in the wake of their appearance at the Evening Standard Theatre Awards this month and Rita's split from producer Andrew Watt in September. Though The Sun's unnamed tipsters warrant a raised eyebrow or two, the tab claims a source close to the singer says Rita told her friends about a "brewing romance" with the "Amazing Spider-Man" star "about a month ago." Since then, the insider says, "things have started to heat up" between the two. "It is still very early days but they like each other and are seeing what happens," says the source, adding that the pair "have a real connection" in spite of their complicated schedules. Andrew, who was linked to actress Susie Abromeit in September, dated Emma Stone for four years before they called it quits in 2015.

Nicki Minaj hired the sisters Cardi B brawled with for her music video
Surprise! Nicki Minaj and Cardi B don't appear to be done antagonizing each other quite yet. The latest development of the rappers' feud involves a New York Post report claiming Nicki's new video will feature the bartender-sisters who accused Cardi of starting the massive bar fight that got her arrested. (The fight was over her belief that one of them had slept with her husband, Offset, which both sisters denied.) Interestingly, the news arrives on the same day Meek Mill — Nicki's ex — released his new album, "Championships" — and a little gossip never hurts when it comes to album sales. Fun fact: Cardi makes a cameo on the album. Another fun fact: It's been almost exactly one month since the ladies drummed a new round of nastiness then suddenly said on social media that they were done feuding. Is it just us or is this whole thing starting to feel a bit orchestrated?
Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas are reportedly having two separate weddings
As Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra continue their pre-wedding festivities in Mumbai alongside friends and family including Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner, they reportedly have two sets of nuptials to look forward to this weekend, according to the New York Post. "This wedding is going to be grand … over-the-top," says one Page Six TV reporter. "There's going to be one that's a traditional American Christian wedding — where she's wearing a white dress — and then another traditional Indian wedding, so they're having two separate weddings on two separate weddings." That approach is actually not uncommon for an Indian bride marrying an American groom, but in this case, Nick's relatives seem to be jumping into the situation with both feet. "The whole Jonas family is so excited about this wedding. They're learning all the Indian traditions …. the dances," says the Page Six reporter." Joe Jonas' fiancee, Sophie Turner and Kevin Jonas' wife, Danielle Jonas, are both expected to play roles in one if not both ceremonies.
Tommy Lee accuses Travis Scott of ripping off his set design
Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee is furious after discovering that the stage for Travis Scott's Astroworld tour includes two roller coaster-esque 360-degree loops that look similar to the roller coasters Tommy's band used on its Final Tour. "Just found out this f–king idiot @travisscott or someone on his team ripped off the 360 AND The Crüecifly! WTF!! Get an original idea bro," Tommy posted on social media this week. "ANNNNND not one rip off but TWO. DOPE. I get copying is a form of flattery, but this is just straight ripping off my s–t. What do you guys think???" he asked. In 2011, Tommy was regularly strapped into his drum set and spun around the the 360-degree loop in question. A lawyer for Travis responded to the post via TMZ, telling the website: "Tommy didn't invent the concept of a roller coaster on stage and there's no legal basis for his accusatory outburst. The actual creator and owner of the system has granted Travis all rights to use that equipment to complement his original stage design." Tommy later posted that he and his production team "created the 360" for their tour and hired SGPS, a Las Vegas-based production company, to make it happen. "WELLLLL GUESS WHO'S DOING TRAVIS'S SET DESIGN????" Tommy asked his followers. yep. SGPS.
Will the Clooneys be named godparents to Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan's child?
With the royal family preparing to welcome a new addition courtesy of Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan, British tabs are working hard to predict the godparents of the baby-to-be. According to JustJared, reports are "strongly" pointing to George Clooney and Amal Clooney, given Meghan and Amal's long-standing friendship and the fact that George and Harry have become pals as a result. George also provided the royal lovebirds with tequila — and even his own bartending skills — when they tied the knot in May. Other insiders are looking to Jessica Mulroney, Meghan's best friend, and Ben Mulroney, Jessica's husband. The couple's kids were in Harry and Meghan's royal wedding; the Mulroneys also joined the Sussexes on their royal tour of Australia. A son of Prince Charles' friend, Hugh van Cutsem, who's close with Harry is reportedly on the list of possibilities, as well. Meghan's due this spring. If we got a vote (which, OK, we don't), we'd have to go with Amy Schumer if for no other reason than the sheer delight she's been giving us by trolling Meghan, one pregnant lady to another.
Amber Heard revisits open letter 'to silent sisters everywhere' about domestic abuse
From Nov. 25 through Dec. 10, the United Nations is campaigning to inspire action that will end violence against women and girls worldwide — and Amber Heard is including her voice in the effort. On Instagram this week, the actress, who has alleged Johnny Depp abused her when they were married, shared a video that showed her reading the open letter she wrote about the topic one month after she for divorce from Johnny in 2016. "Let's start with the truth — the cold, hard truth," she says in the clip (via the Daily Mail). "When a woman comes forward to speak out about injustice or her suffering, instead of aid, respect and support, she will be met with hostility, skepticism and shame. Her motives will be questioned, her truth ignored. No matter how terrible or terrifying surviving trauma maybe, unfortunately it can pale in comparison to what follows," she continues. "It's no wonder so many feel like they have to remain silent or risk their own safety in an effort to maintain our dignity by quietly enduring." She goes on to say that while the isolation that comes with such ostracism can be frightening, things are starting to change. "But our world is changing. Standing shoulder-to-shoulder as women, we comprise a vast army of voices, and we can no longer accept silence," Amber says. "I've met so many women who see themselves not as victims, but as survivors, as members of a growing class of women, daughters of a generation of equality." Addressed to her "silent sisters everywhere,"

Weeks after stars including Miley Cyrus, Robin Thicke and Neil Young lost their homes to wildfires in Southern California, the music community plans to come together on Sunday, Dec. 2, for the One Love Malibu festival at One Love Ranch.

Orlando Bloom and Pierce Brosnan are among the celebs helping to produce the event.
Snooki says she's been trying to get pregnant for almost year
Snooki's recent announcement that she and Jionni LaValle are expecting their third child was even more exciting for the "Jersey Shore" stars to make because they'd been trying to conceive for nearly year before Snooki finally got pregnant. "Me and Jionni have been trying to have a baby since July, and now it's finally happened," Snooki told fans in a YouTube video posted Thursday, Nov. 29 (via UsWeekly). "And I was getting a little worried because it wasn't happening as soon as I wanted it to. And everyone's like, 'Oh, you're older now.' B—-, I'm 30! Relax!" Snooki, who's actually 31 now, shares a 6-year-old son and a 4-year-old daughter with her husband, whom she married in 2014. "We've been wanting another baby since Giovanna turned 3. It just wasn't the right timing, you know?" she said in the clip. "Obviously I would want to have kids every year, but it's just not realistic. I wanted to be completely ready — and you're never really ready for a baby — but for your third, you can plan when you wanna be ready, and I just wasn't ready." Snooki, who's due in June, has said she plans to find out the baby's gender in advance.
