Madonna, 61, has reportedly been dating 25-year-old backup dancer Ahlamalik Williams for more than a year
"Love has no age." So says Drue Williams, the father of Madonna's 25-year-old backup dancer, Ahlamalik Williams, who's been dating 61-year-old Queen of Pop a for more than a year, according to Drue. In a new interview with TMZ, Ahlamalik's dad said his son's relationship with Madonna has gotten serious in the year or so they've been together. In fact, Madonna's already met both of Ahlamalik's parents — they apparently got together after a show in September in New York City — and has told them she loves Ahlamalik "unconditionally and wants to take care of him." It seems Madge invited her beau's folks to watch her performance at Caesar'as Palace last month. After the show, they reportedly joined her in her suite for a dinner prepared by her personal chef. They're now planning a trip to see more shows in London and France in early 2020, according to Drue. The happy couple reportedly met in 2015 when Ahlamalik auditioned to join the Rebel Heart Tour. Dating younger guys is nothing new for the singer, of course. When she was 50, Madonna hooked up with 22-year-old model Jesus Luzafter meeting him at a photoshoot. The singer was also involved with dancer Brahim Zaibat, back in 2011 when she was 53 and he was 24. A couple of years after that, she dated 26-year-old dancer, Timor Steffens. "My son is livin' la Vida Loca," Drue told TMZ, "and I'm just happy for him."

Kristen Bell can barely keep it together as Dax Shepard explains middle fingers to their daughters
Ah, the weird joys of parenting … Kristen Bell shared a series of videos on her Instagram Story over the weekend that showed her reaction to her husband, Dax Shepard's attempt to teach their 6-year-old daughter Lincoln and 5-year-old daughter Delta what it means when someone holds up a certain finger or uses a certain "naughty" word. The clips — which feature very tiny, off-camera voices dropping "F"-bombs (because research) — came with a caption about how Kristen's "been waiting for this conversation since the day I got pregnant … the one where we talk about what fingers mean u hold em up." At one point one of their daughters tells her dad a boy in school "says this is 'f—. He says that every time in school. The teacher says that's a bad word." Dax confirms that the boy is "naughty" and the word is "not a nice" one before moving on to the finger part. "You know, that's a naughty finger and I never see you do that. It makes me so proud that you know that, yet you don't do it," he tells her as Kristen struggles not tor burst out laughing. "Well, you did it a couple of times when you were young, before you knew it was a naughty word," Dax adds. "I fidgeting because i am trying so hard not to laugh. Its excruciating. @daxshepard, u handled this brilliantly. (sic)," Kristen captioned one post. Her favorite part, though? "This was too funny," she wrote alongside another video. "But also the ending when she said 'and he laughs at everything I do' 💔💔😫."

Alex Trebek opens up about saying 'goodbye' to 'Jeopardy' when the time comes
As Alex Trebek continues fighting stage 4 pancreatic cancer, he intends to keep hosting "Jeopardy" as long as he can. "He has no plans to quit, and is absolutely not announcing his retirement [anytime soon]," a coworker recently told People. Alex had previously said he would "play it by ear" and as long as he could manage the side effects of chemotherapy, he'd continue going to work every day. That said, he has thought about how he'll leave the show when the time comes. In a special he recorded with his wife, Jean Currivan, set to air this week, Alex told Michael Strahan he knows saying goodbye will "be a significant moment for me," according to Newsweek. "But I've kind of, in my mind, rehearsed it already, and what I would do on that day is tell the director, 'Time the show down to leave me 30 seconds at the end. That's all I want,'" he said. "And I will say my goodbyes and I will tell people, 'Don't ask me who's going to replace me because I have no say whatsoever. But I'm sure that if you give them the same love and attention and respect that you have shown me, then they will be a success and the show will continue being a success. And until we meet again, God bless you and goodbye.'" "What Is Jeopardy? Alex Trebek and America's Most Popular Quiz Show," airs Thursday, Jan. 2, on ABC.
Vicki Gunlavson tells fans she's not homophobic because she has relatives, friends who are gay
Vicki Gunlavson has a message for her fans as "The Real Housewives of Orange County" look ahead to the new year and the next season. That message is that she's not homophobic. The longtime "RHOC" star recently shared a video on Instagram in which she addressed criticism she's been seeing on social media regarding her reaction to an on-camera kiss between her costars, Braunwyn Windham-Burke, the show's newest member, and Tamra Judge. The two shared an intense kiss on the Season 14 reunion, sparking a tirade from Vicki, who demanded they, "Do it off-camera!" and griped, "Fifteen years [ago], I started this show. We don't do that. Turn it down, Braunwyn. Turn it down!" A calmer Vicki appears in the video, where she says she's clearly "not homophobic" because she has "family members that are gay and lesbian," and knows "Bravo fans" and "personal friends" who are, too. "What I did say [is] I don't think it's appropriate for Braunwyn to be making out on TV. I don't care if it's with her husband or Tamra or anybody — I just think it's inappropriate," Vicki says. "If she wants to go do that, do that off-camera. I don't really think that we all need to see it. She adds that she's "sorry" if anything was construed "differently than what the truth is … that girl bugs me, so pretty much anything that she does would bug me." Vicki captioned the post, "My message as we end our season 14, and enter into 2020. Peace be with all of you. Here's to a healthy, happy New Year."

Caitlyn Jenner explains why her family did not greet her after 'I'm a Celebrity …'
When a contestant on "I'm a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here" gets eliminated, the person is usually greeted on-set by friends and family. That wasn't the case for Caitlyn Jenner, though, and the lack of representation from the Kardashian-Jenner krewe sparked criticism online. Caitlyn addressed the situation in a new interview with the Daily Mail, explaining that she returned home with her live-in friend Sophie Hutchins because her relatives' fame madeit all a different ball game. "My family are very well-known. I never asked any of them to come down or expected them to — they all have businesses and families," she told the outlet. "After the show was over, I texted or called all the kids to apologize," she added. Kim Kardashian West previously tweeted that no one in her family was contacted when Caitlyn was eliminated, according to People.
Sharon Osbourne faces backlash for firing Ozzy's assistant after making him run into a burning house
Sharon Osbourne is not making any new fans with her story about the end of a relationship with one of Ozzy Osbourne's assistants. During a recent appearance on the Britsh game show, "Would I Lie To You?," where contestants guess whether an anecdote is true, she said she once woke up to Ozzy screaming for her because his arm was on fire. "He had a sling on. And half his hair was all on fire," Sharon continued. "So then outside there was a fountain. I pushed Ozzy out and then the arm and his hair stopped. And then I think 'Right, where is that assistant?' So I go into the guest house and he's going, 'Everything Alright?' and I'm like 'No, house is on fire. Get out, help. Go in and get the paintings out.'" She had the assistant get the dogs out of the house as well, she said. "After this terrible night, he was not talking to me. And Ozzy and I were counting everything and we were laughing and laughing and he goes 'I don't see what's funny about any of this. I think I am going to have damaged lungs.'" Having determined the guy didn't see the humor in his near death, she told him, "You're fired." It turned out the story was true, according to People. That did not sit well with fans, who proceeded to call her names, unfollow her and suggest the assistant sue her family.
