Mama June's mug shot revealed
Authorities in Alabama have released the mug shot from "Mama June" Shannon's March 13 felony drug possession arrest — and it's kind of a doozy. In the photo, the "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" and "Mama June: From Not to Hot" star casts her eyes to the ground as she curls her lips into a snarl. June and her boyfriend Eugene Edward "Geno" Doak were arrested last week after police reportedly found June in possession of crack cocaine and drug paraphernalia, according to the Macon County District Attorney's Office (via People). Geno was also hit with drug and drug paraphernalia charges as well as a third-degree domestic violence charge. The couple were reportedly searched by police who'd responded to a call about a domestic dispute at a gas station. Though she looks decidedly displeased in her mug shot, the arrest didn't stop the 39-year-old reality star from live-tweeting the premiere of the third season of "Mama June: From Not to Hot." "Sorry I'm so late tweeting the show," she posted without mentioning the arrest, "but don't forget to watch the most outrageous moments right now. Let's get ready to start the season off good #mamajune." A rep for June had not yet replied to People's request for comment as of Tuesday, March 19.
Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin postpone wedding for fourth time
Six months after they legally wed at a New York City courthouse with the intention of having a larger, traditional wedding down the road, Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin have postponed their second wedding for the fourth time. Sources tell People the delay is due to Justin's depression and general mental health, which he told fans last week he's been working on for some time. "They will still have a wedding eventually, but this is not their focus right now," says the People source. "They haven't sent out any new save the dates. They will wait until Justin feels better and is excited about planning their wedding again. In the meantime, Justin, who's said he's been feeling "disconnected and weird," continues to work with mental health pros on both coasts. He's also been leaning on his faith — and his wife. "He is very, very focused on getting better. He wants to be in a great place for his own and Hailey's sake. He is still confident that he will get there," the insider says. Over the weekend, Justin and Hailey were spotted together twice in Los Angeles. "They seem happy about spending a few days in L.A.," says the source. "Hailey isn't putting any pressure on him at all. She only wants him to focus on his mental health." A second source added that Hailey is her husband's "biggest supporter" right now. "There are so many people who love and care for him and are helping him deal with what he needs to deal with," the insider says. "Hailey is definitely one of those people. She is there for him in a way that you wouldn't expect from a newlywed. She understands him deeply, and is 100 percent ready to help him. He realizes how blessed he is to have her."

How quickly they forget! Orlando Bloom proposed to Katy Perry on Valentine's Day, slipping a massive ring on her all-important finger when she said "yes." But as the singer live tweeted "American Idol" on Sunday, March 17, she seemed to be so excited about the show she demoted her man to boyfriend, according to the Daily Mail, which picked up on the tweet.

I never tell him hahahahahahahahahahaha," she posted.She son found herself being corrected by a bevvy of fans who did little to hide their empathy for poor Orlando.

Michael Keaton reveals why he quit stand-up despite being 'so in love with comedy'
In December, shortly before the release of her Netflix comedy special, "Relatable," Ellen DeGeneres surprised her fans when she told the New York Times she was considering leaving daytime television to focus on her first love, stand-up. Her guest on the Tuesday, March 19, edition of "Ellen," understands that impulse. Michael Keaton stopped by the show to promote his new movie, Tim Burton's "Dumbo," but he also spent some time opening up to Ellen about his early work in comedy — and why he quit. "I really wanted to be an actor but I was so in love with comedy and I started to write a little bit and I started doing stand up in New York, actually," Michael, 67, explained, according to People. "And [then] I went to acting class and started getting more roles. But I really, really only want to be great at something, so I threw the focus kind of into acting as opposed to stand up." He still recalls the feeling of doing great stand-up, though. "The thing about it is, when it works, and I mean when it's really working right at that point where you want it, there's nothing close to it, I don't think," he said. "Dumbo" hits theaters March 29.
Lupita Nyong'o scared an audience member in the ladies' room at the 'Us' Premiere
One advantage of appearing in a horror movie is an actor's ability to continue scaring folks for fun in real life — and "Us" star, Lupita Nyong'o, is definitely taking advantage of that. The actress — who plays both the "good" and "evil" versions of a woman whose family vacation turns hellish when a family of evil clones shows up — wore a pair of admittedly spooky gold contacts when she stopped by "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" on Monday, March 18. After giving Stephen a little scare, she admitted she'd recently scared a complete stranger by accident when she was attending the SXSW premiere of the new Jordan Peele horror flick. "At one point I went to the bathroom while the movie was going on and another lady came out of the stall to wash her hands and I emerged from my stall," Lupita said (via JustJared). "And she near had a heart attack. I knew it wasn't because she was starstruck, she was mortified to see me there. She was like, 'I just didn't expect to see you there'." Eesh. Lupita and her spooky doppleganger comes to a theater near you on Friday, March 22.
Kristin Cavallari wishes she could 'hug' her late brother and 'say goodbye'
Kristin Cavallari still struggles to come to terms with the death of her older brother, Michael in 2015. As she says in a preview for the next episode of "Very Cavallari" (via E! News), he "had a very sweet soul," but that didn't ultimately protect him from the mental health issues he was battling with when he died in Utah. "We got a phone call the Friday after Thanksgiving that his car was found," she says in the clip. "So, he ended up crashing his car. He got out and he got lost, essentially. And he ended up dying of hypothermia." Kristin goes on to call the situation a "really tough moment" in particular because she found about his death just a few days after welcoming her daughter, Saylor James Cutler. As the clip ends, Kristin says she wishes she could "just hug him one more time and just say goodbye."
Andrew Rannells details sexual assault by a priest as a teen
Andrew Rannells is among the growing list of people who allegedly suffered sexual assault and abuse within the Catholic Church system. The "Girls" alum opens up about what happened in his new memoir, "Too Much is Not Enough," explaining how his "star altar boy" role as a little boy in Omaha, Nebraska, sparked him to become close with priests when he began a Jesuit high school. "My retirement from the altar came just as my interest in it disappeared, but my relationship to priests was just about to kick into high gear," the actor writes in an excerpt published by Vulture. He describes coming to terms with his homosexuality and getting involved with a much older man. The confusion that ensued caused him to isolate himself as his grades fell. Teachers soon encouraged him to talk about what was going on with someone named Father Dominic at confession. "I sat across from him in a dark corner, our knees touching. He grabbed my neck, as expected, and I started to talk. I started to try to explain what was happening with me, but I couldn't make the words come out right," Andrew writes (via Page Six). "Instead, I started to cry. I was so embarrassed. Father Dominic squeezed my neck harder, and he grabbed both my hands with his free hand. His hands were like baseball mitts. We just sat there while I cried." He continues: "He finally said, 'It's okay. You've done nothing wrong.' It wasn't exactly what I was looking for, but it still felt nice. He stood up and pulled me up with him. He hugged me tightly. I felt safe and heard and understood. Then, with unexpected force, he kissed me. On the lips. He muscled his tongue into my mouth and held the back of my head still. Then he released me and made the sign of the cross on my forehead. He smiled." Though he tried to dodge the priest for the rest of high school, his mother ended up inviting him to his graduation party. "At some point, Father Dominic needed to leave, and he asked if I could show him out. I knew what was coming, but at this point, I didn't care," Andrew writes. "I had performed and received numerous sex acts with a man I didn't care about, and I just walked around feeling damaged. … We stood at my parents' front door and said our good-byes for the final time, and then he grabbed me by the back of the neck and forced his tongue in my mouth. I just stood there and let him. I didn't kiss back, but I also didn't move. He smiled at me and walked to his car." Finally, Andrew recalls that at 18, he was determined to get out of Nebraska — and the church — for good.
