Travis Barker inks Kourtney Kardashian's lips over Shanna Moakler tattoo
Travis Barker made his love for Kourtney Kardashian official when he slipped that blinding Lorraine Schwartz bling on her finger last weekend. This week, the tattoo-obsessed Blink-182 drummer went one step further, replacing a heart-encircled tat featuring the name of his ex-wife, Shanna Moakler, with some new ink — a giant black scorpion whose tail points to an impression of Kourt's black lipstick-coated lips. Aw. Page Six spotted an Instagram post from tattoo artist Scott Cambell, who showed off the Kourtney-inspired body art on Oct. 25. "Scorpio season," Scott captioned a pic of the tats, which now adorn Travis' inner arm. "On @travisbarker … Lips straight from the mouth of @kourtneykardash Congrats you two ✨🖤💍🖤✨." Travis, meanwhile, posted pics of the scorpion sketch and his fiancée's black lips blot. Travis also has Kourtney's first name inscribed in ink on his chest and two tats she etched on his bod herself — one reads, "I love you," the other says "you're so cool," according to his previous IG posts. The PDA-loving pair got engaged on Oct. 17 in Montecito, California.

Alec Baldwin's wife breaks silence on Halyna Hutchins shooting
As new details continue to emerge about Alec Baldwin's fatal shooting of Halyna Hutchins on the set of "Rust," Hilaria Baldwin broke her silence about the incident on Instagram on Oct. 25. "My heart is with Halyna," Hilaria wrote of the late cinematographer. "Her husband. Her son. Their family and loved ones. And my Alec." She continued, "It's said, 'there are no words because it's impossible to express shock and heartache of such a tragic accident. Heartbreak. Loss. Support." Her post garnered supportive responses from celebs including Katie Couric, Melanie Griffith and Rosie O'Donnell, all of whom echoed Hilaria's sentiments. Hilaria's post comes amid new information indicating safety conditions had been an issue for some crew members on the set prior to the shooting, which appears to have happened after Alec was handed a gun by assistant director Dave Halls, who reportedly yelled, "cold gun," meaning there were no live rounds in the firearm, according to an affidavit acquired by the New York Times. The gun, of course, turned out not to have been "cold" after all. "Rust" Director Joel Souza is still recovering from his injuries.

Paulina Porizkova opens up about 'shock of finding' husband Ric Ocasek dead, estate battle that followed
After a drawn-out battle with the estate of her late husband, Ric Ocasek, Paulina Porizkova revealed she's reached a settlement and will "be fine." Speaking to Andrew Goldman for the Oct. 24 edition of his Los Angeles Magazine podcast, "The Originals," the supermodel, 56, opened up about everything from the pair's split to her decision to continue living with Ric as they navigated divorce proceedings to her discovery that she'd been cut out of Ric's will weeks shortly his unexpected death in 2019. Though she declined to divulge a number, Paulina dismissed claims Ric was only worth $5 million at the time of his death but said, "I know exactly how much I'm owed under New York law, how much is due to me. And I am getting it. The estate is settling with me." (According to CelebrityNetWorth.com, Ric was worth closer to $40 million in 2019.) Asked point-blank "how much" money was involved in the settlement, Paulina said, "That I cannot tell you, [but] I am gonna be fine. … I settled last week with the estate. They were very fair." The model also spoke candidly about finding her husband dead at 75 in their New York City townhouse. "It completely sideswiped me, I had no idea. … I didn't know how to make heads or tails out of anything," she admitted. "The shock of finding him and the grief of him being dead and then 'Oh, guess what? You get no money. He didn't want you to have [any] money, and he disinherited his two oldest sons.' So, I was really messed up, and I won't ever have the answers." She added that his altered will may have been "cobbled together" quickly by lawyers before he went into surgery. In his updated will, Ric had specified that because of the divorce, "I have made no provision for my wife." He went on to say that if he were to die before the divorce was finalized, "Paulina is not entitled to any elective share … because she has abandoned me." Paulina explained on the podcast that she and Ric had been living together, with separate bedrooms, for about five years when he passed. "I felt really bad about leaving him in this big, old, empty house," she explained. "I knew he needed help. I loved him. I didn't want him to have a hard time." Paulina and Ric tied the knot in 1980, when the Czech beauty was 24.

Halfway through her birthday on Oct. 25, Katy Perry tweeted that she was already having a "productive 37," after guest-hosting "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," where the singer riffed on how her life has both changed and stayed the same since she and Orlando Bloom welcomed their daughter, Daisy, last year. "Now that I'm a mom, my life is actually kinda totally different. And yet I realized it's kinda similar to being a pop star," Katy explained, according to People. "You're up all night, usually holding a bottle of some kind, there's vomit on the floor — and your b**** are always out." (Badum-ching.)

Julianna Margulies responds to backlash over gay role on 'The Morning Show'
Julianna Margulies is once again defending her decision to play a gay character on "The Morning Show" despite being straight in real life. The former "Good Wife" star, 55, plays a journalist named Laura who develops a romance with Reese Witherspoon's Bradley character, an anchor on "TMS." Julianna addressed the backlash she's faced for taking the part during an appearance on the Oct. 25 edition of "CBS Mornings." Explaining that she sees where critics are coming from, she cautioned that detractors are "making assumptions as to who I am and what my past is and what all our pasts are." Julianna, who's been married to a man since 2007, went on to point out that actors, by trade, are required to transform into other people as part of their job, whether they have shared those people's experiences or not. "I understand 100 percent that I can't play a different race, but I am an actress and I am supposed to embody another character," she said, according to ET. "Whatever their sexuality is doesn't matter to me, the same way watching a gay person play a straight person [wouldn't]. Are you telling me that because I'm a mother, I can never play a woman who has never had a child? Or if you've never been married that you can never play a married woman?" Julianna concluded, "You have to be careful on where you're drawing the line there. We're actors. We're supposed to embody a character, regardless of their sexuality. When it comes to race and gender, that's a whole different story and I 100 percent agree with that. That's my stance on it."
