Lori Loughlin is reportedly 'freaking out' about jail prospect
In today's college admissions scandal news … People reports former "Fuller House" star Lori Loughlin is starting to realize she's probably going to jail and she's less than pleased by that prospect. "Lori is finally realizing just how serious this is," an insider says of the conspiracy to commit mail fraud, honest services fraud and money laundering charges she and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli face for allegedly paying out bribes to get their daughters into U.S.C. "She is seeing the light that she will do jail time," the source adds, "and is freaking out." It seems Lori and Mossimo hadn't considered the possibility they could end up behind bars when they rejected their first plea deal offer. Lori also perhaps didn't consider that it looked a bit off for her to sign autographs outside the courtroom, which she did this week. "She was obviously extremely nervous and the actress side of Lori came out," said E!'s source. "She doesn't know how else to be in public. Her natural reaction was to just smile and try to be lighthearted. She's always been so well loved and charming, that's the part she knows how to play in public." Like a dozen other parents implicated in the scandal, Lori's actress peer, Felicity Huffman, took full responsibility for her crimes and agreed to a plea deal. Lori and Mossimo could reportedly face between 2 and 20 years behind bars. According to Page Six, the couple is now "engaged in strategy talks" with crisis manager Hunter Frederick, who has previous worked with stars like Lindsay Lohan and Gwyneth Paltrow when they were facing nasty image problems.
Blake Lively flirts with her Pokemon hubby, Ryan Reynolds, on Twitter
Whether Blake Lively's taunting her husband, Ryan Reynolds, about the size of his … truck … or Ryan's demanding Blake confess about the ghosts she's known intimately, the couple definitely brings their A-game when it's time to play, Let's Troll Our Significant Other. This week, Ryan, who voiced the lead character in the new, "Pokémon: Detective Pikachu," shared a clip from the movie, joking that it was his "actual audition" tape in a nod to an equally jokey video he and Blake shot in which he describes having gone full-on method in his preparation for his transformation into a small, yellow video game monster (" I lived it, I breathed it, I became the character. I lived the entire year as Detective Pikachu"). Blake must have been feeling a little more flirty or less sarcastic when she noticed the post, because rather than use the post as a launch pad for some new, hilarious dig, she simply pointed at his monster character and asked, "is it wrong to say i'd tap that?" The answer, it seems, was no. "This is easily the best fan-fiction I've ever read," Ryan replied (via the Daily Mail). At the end of that method Pokemon acting video, by the way, Ryan riffs on the ongoing joke by saying that one time he didn't pick up the daughters he shares with Blake from school because he wasn't Ryan, he had literally become his character. "The point is, my daughters, they may never their dad again, but you can be damn sure that they'll be looking up at that screen this summer and they'll be seeing 'Detective Pikachu," he tells the camera. In the clip, Blake just laughs and says, "We're not going."

Anderson Cooper wants to take Andy Cohen's 'judgy' new baby on tour
Among the many celebrities Andy Cohen's son, Benjamin, is likely to grow up knowing, his "uncle" Anderson Cooper is one of the closest to the family. Anderson reminded fans of that fact earlier this week when he shared a sweet shot of himself cradling Benjamin while standing beside the proud — if currently un-dateable — new dad . "If you look closely at Benjamin's face in that picture, he's got amazing side eye," Anderson joked on "The Late Show With Steven Colbert" on Wednesday, April 10 (via ET). "He's got this side eye look, he's very judgy. In general, I think babies are very judgy, but he's particularly judgmental." Anderson added that he wants "to take the kid on" the road with him and Andy when they continue their AC2 tour "because I think the kid has been freeloading long enough. It's been, like, two months. It's time to monetize him. …It's about time he contributed." When Stephen commended him for "thinking show business," Anderson quipped, "Yes! Push that kid out! It never hurt, like, Liza Minnelli. She did it, she was out there. …It's good for them."

Jennifer Lopez reveals the name Alex Rodriguez had for her in his phone at first
We learned a lot of new details about Jennifer Lopez during her appearance on "The Breakfast Club" this week, such as the fact she doesn't regret doing that controversial Motown tribute at the Grammys and she's not worried about those A-Rod cheating cheating rumors ("I know what the truth is," she said of her fiance). Two smaller but equally interesting tidbits surfaced in the interview, as well — and they both involve Jenny From the Block's Boogie Down Bronx roots. In her new movie, "Hustlers." Jennifer and Cardi B play strippers in the Big Apple who steal from their male clients (sound familiar, Bardi fans?). Turns out Jennifer totally identifies with Cardi. "We're both from the Bronx, we're both Latina, we both had to find our way" she explained, according to Jezebel. "I started as a dancer, she started as a dancer, maybe in different ways. I used to watch her on Instagram before she had music out and she was just like how the girls I grew up with talked," she added. The other fun fact? For a while there, J.Lo's former Yankees star, who hails from New York City's Washington Heights neighborhood, just south of where his soon-to-be wife was raised, had her in his phone as simply, "The Bronx." Now that's what you call a real NYC love story.
Chrissy Teigen wants more women to tell people off with a certain four-letter word
Way back when, Chrissy Teigen came out swinging in her social media war with Donald Trump. Since then, she's only grown bolder — and in many cases, more entertaining. That may be part of the reason she and her husband, John Legend, who's also been vocal about his dislike for the current administration, appeared onstage at the House Democrats Issues Conference this week. "[Chrissy] knew well before a lot of America did that [Trump] was a joke and a con man and a clown," John said at one point from the stage while seated next to his wife, according to The Hill. "And she was prescient long before he ever thought about running for president. She was on point with that." Chrissy shared some thoughts during the talk as well. When the moderator, political commentator Melissa Harris-Perry, noted that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has successfully learned to say "no" to the president, she followed the comment up by asking Chrissy for one word she'd like to see women use more often. "F— you," Chrissy offered. Technically, that's two, but … sure.
North West is psyched to get a new little brother so Saint can leave her alone
Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West's fourth child is due via surrogate in "very early May," according to Us Weekly. So how are the new addition's older siblings-to-be taking the news? Speaking to Vogue in a video posted this week, Kim explained that while 3-year-old Saint is "excited" about having a little brother, her eldest, North — who was not always so happy about Saint joining the family — is handling the baby news better this time around, though it doesn't sound like she's eased up too much on Saint.. "I think North is [excited] too," Kim said, "because Saint will have someone to play with instead of her." Kim and Kanye are also parents to 14-month-old Chicago West. Guess she's not up to snuff, buddy-wise, yet, for her big brother.
Nipsey Hussle's 'inner circle' said 'goodbye' at a private viewing
The massive outpouring of love Nipsey Hussle was shown at his Celebration of Life at the Staples Center on Thursday, April 11, wasn't the only memorial event held this week for the rapper, who was shot on march 31 outside his Marathon Clothing store in the South Los Angeles neighborhood where he'd been trying to make streets more peaceful. On Wednesday, friends and family said their "goodbyes" in a private viewing at Angelus Funeral Home on Crenshaw Boulevard, according to TMZ. Like the Staples Center event, the viewing was reportedly run under tight security with a very small, "inner circle" invitee list, to protect mourners. By then, some 21,000 free tickets to the Staples Center event had already been snapped up within minutes, the website reports.
Olivia Munn claps back at troll after celebrating Katie Bouman's black hole algorithm
Like folks all around the world, Olivia Munn couldn't contain her enthusiasm about the groundbreaking scientific advancement that allowed us to see a black hole for the first time in history this week. She was so excited, in fact, that when an Instagram user challenged the wording of her post about the news, she quickly turned the tables, pointing out the user's basic error and suggesting he climb inside the expanse of nothingness. "We got the first-ever image of a black hole because of an amazing team led by MIT grad student Katie Bouman, who helped create the algorithm that made the image possible," Olivia wrote on Instagram on Tuesday, April 10. "The algorithm stitches together a network of eight linked telescopes that form the Event Horizon Telescope. Congratulations and THANK YOU, Katie! You're an inspiration to so many people." While many comments on the post were of the "yeah, science!" variety, some shouted out the fact that "a woman did that," since science and math have long been notoriously male-dominated fields, some users griped that Katie's gender was even being mentioned. "Is everything gender or race related," sniped @junior.willz (via the Daily Mail). "@junior.willz Wow. I didn't say anything about her race or gender," Olivia replied. "But clearly that's all you see. I'm gonna take a wild guess that you're a f—ing idiot. Am I right?" Another user chimed in: "He's saying she wouldn't have said anything if a man had done this. It would have just been another day for science," and Olivia had a reply for him, too. "@j_frost93 you have no way of saying what I would do. Like right now I'm going to tell you to go f— yourself. Bet you didn't predict that." The banter finally settled down when one of Olivia's fans praised her responses. "@oliviamunn I knew ! I knew you wouldn't let this ass get away with his ignorant comment!!! Maybe he belongs in a black hole and should stay there perhaps? Asking for a friend," the fan commented." "@geniawalter Yup," Olivia replied. "Put him in the black hole. Answering for a friend."
Kit Harington wants to be a dad
Now that his life as Jon Snow is behind him, Kit Harington is thinking about a different kind of role. "The most important job I'll ever have is about to finish … ," he says at one point in a new interview with InStyle. He then cuts himself off. "Well, not the most," he says. "Hopefully, I'll be a father." Kit married actress Rose Leslie, who played Jon Snow's love, Ygritte, on the show, in Scotland last year. Asked about the experience of working with someone he had real-life feelings for, he shared this bit of high praise for his lady: "I think almost the worst thing about falling in love with Rose and marrying her is that it's going to be very hard to work with her again," Kit said. "Working opposite her was one of the highlights of my life and career. I don't know when, if ever, I'm going to get to do that again, because we're married now, and it's hard to work opposite your wife." Truth.
Milla Jovovich and her husband still sleep in the same bed with their kids
Between the two of them, Milla Jovovich and her husband, director Paul W.S. Anderson are good for about $60, according to CelebrityNetWorth.com. That should be enough for the couple to afford a house with separate bedrooms for themselves and their 11 and 4-year-old daughters. Yet when nighttime falls at Milla's house, everybody climbs into bed together. Milla, who once said in an interview that "co-sleeping … [has] helped us so much to stay connected as a family," On the Wednesday, April 11, edition of "The Wendy Williams Show," the subject came up again. "The 11 year old… keeps sort of threatening to go to her own room at some point, but she's like, 'I know how lonely you'd get without me, so …," the "Hellboy" star explained, according to Jezebel. Wendy being Wendy then asked, "Now, is that what they do… where you're from?" in reference to Milla's Ukrainian background. Instead of answering that one, Milla dove into the sleeping setup. "We have a king size and a double, like pushed together," she said, adding that her man sleeps in "the crack" between the beds. "For us it worked, because my husband and I, especially when we make movies together, we're working 15 hours a day, we get to see the kids at lunch, but we don't get that time to connect so sometimes nighttime is the only time to reconnect with the family," she continued before adding that once a week, she and Paul head to a hotel — because "obviously when you share a bed, you gotta get creative about how you're gonna make the next baby."
