Allison Holker is still trying to pick up the pieces of her family following the heartbreaking death of her husband, Stephen "tWitch" Boss, last December. "This has been a difficult process for Allison, but she's confident it will all work out in the end and that the kids will be taken care of," a source told Us Weekly. Twitch, the longtime sidekick of Ellen DeGeneres, died without a will, which forced the "Dancing With The Stars" pro to legally file for his half of their estate. Allison and Twitch shared son Maddox, 6, and daughter Zaia, 3. Allison also has a teenage daughter from a previous relationship, whom Stephen adopted. "Anyone who knew Stephen would tell you his wife and kids were his No. 1 priority," the insider added, noting that he "absolutely … would have wanted" Allison to obtain access to the property. "There's every confidence the courts will agree to do the right thing and give her half his estate," the source said.
Paris Hilton's baby announcement last month wasn't just a surprise to her fans but also to her family. In speaking with Harper's Bazaar for its March 2023 issue, the "Simple Life" alum said she kept news of the surrogacy totally secret. She even created a ruse, telling everyone in her and husband Carter Reum's orbit that their house was being painted, which kept family and friends away for a few days. Paris also wore a brunette wig to the hospital. "My entire life has been so public," she said. "I've never had anything for myself. We decided that we wanted to have this whole experience to ourselves." Paris's family found out about the baby boy just moments before the heiress spoke about him on social media.
Healthy living was not something "Pitch Perfect" producers wanted Rebel Wilson to be participating in, the actress claims. On Alex Cooper's Call Her Daddy podcast, the actress said she couldn't fluctuate in weight from 2012 to 2017, which is when "Pitch Perfect" and its two sequels were in the pipeline. "I couldn't lose a massive amount of weight, because I was in the contracts for that movie," she said. "You can't lose I think it's not more than 10 lbs. or gain more than 10 lbs. You have to kind of stay at the weight that's in your contract." Since those films wrapped, Rebel has become a fitness fanatic and has dropped a significant amount of weight, something she'd wanted to do for years. In referring to her roles "Bridesmaids"and "How to Be Single," she said, "I had been thinking for awhile that I want to get healthier and I was stereotyped in playing that fat, funny friend. I love doing those roles, I love those characters, but then I did want to do more things. But then I felt like being the bigger girl, you're just more pigeonholed."
Producers of "Live" have been prepping for the next iteration of the daytime show for a while, and they began speaking to Kelly Ripa's husband, Mark Consuelos, about permanently taking over for Ryan Seacrest a year ago. On Thursday, Feb. 16, Ryan announced that he was leaving "Live With Kelly and Ryan" this spring after six years of the show. Unlike when Michael Strahan left the show, Ryan's exit is amicable and hasn't left producers scrambling to find Kelly a co-host. Over the years, Mark has co-hosted the morning staple with his wife over 100 times, so the ABC head honchos have been privately viewing the "Riverdale" star as a "built-in host," Page Six reported. Ryan said his decision to leave "Live" is "bittersweet." "It was a tough, tough decision … Last year, we spoke and I made the decision to make this my last season as co-host with Kel here … which is bittersweet," he said. TMZ reported that Ryan only planned to host the show alongside Kelly for three years, so he went well beyond his initial line of thinking.
"Yellowstone" star Wes Bentley is already picturing life without John Dutton. In early February it was reported that Kevin Costner, who plays ranch owner John Dutton on the Paramount show, might step away due to scheduling conflicts. Wes, who plays John's adopted son Jamie, has been envisioning John's death for years. "I thought about this in season 1 — because it's always a possibility in TV, right? We're always ready to die… [And John] really has got this hypnotic pull on Jamie," he told TVLine. Jamie's feelings toward his father changed in recent seasons. "After John ran for governor and became the thing he said he hated, Jamie started to have a change of perspective," Wes said. "Maybe John is not this tough guy he says he is. Maybe John doesn't have ideas. Maybe he's just another guy like the rest of them." Jamie no longer places John on a "pedestal" and says the "deity is gone." "I think that's why Jamie's choosing to try to have him killed," Wes said of his character. "[He realizes that his] life would be much better without him, which is a big change for Jamie."
"Ex"-tra warm wishes. Tarek El Moussa and his wife, Heather Rae El Moussa, welcomed a son on Jan. 31, and they couple got nothing but warm wishes from his ex-wife, Christina Hall. "Christina congratulated us, of course, and she's very happy for us," Tarek told Us Weekly. "When it comes to gifts, we got so many gifts. I was actually surprised … It was really, really nice." On Feb. 15, the reality TV stars announced their baby boy's name and shared a first photo of his face with Us Weekly. "Tristan Jay El Moussa," Heather told Us, explaining, "Tarek was supposed to be named Tristan, and his parents ended up naming him Tarek. And then my dad's middle name is Jay. So it's four generations of the middle name Jay."
