Denise Richards opens up about 'strained' relationship with teenage daughter
Five months after Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen's daughter Sami posted on TikTok that she'd moved out of her mother's "abusive household," there's still tension between the 17-year-old and her mom. "Honestly, I have a strained relationship with her," Denise said on SiriusXM's Jeff Lewis Live on Feb. 11, according to People. "It's very difficult. I know we'll get back to where we were eventually but right now, it is strained." Denise went on to say that while she'd like Sami to live with her still — she now lives with Charlie — it's "OK" that her environment isn't as strict. "Obviously I would love for her to live with me. She lived with me all these years," Denise said. "But I think it's very difficult raising teenagers now and especially in Los Angeles when there's access to everything. We didn't grow up with Postmates and Uber where you have everything that you want. There are certain rules and I enforce them. And [at Charlie's], there's different rules at that house and that's OK." Sami shared the allegations about her mom on TikTok in September. "1 year ago today: trapped in an abusive household, hated myself, would go days without eating or sleeping, insanely depressed, hated school, etc…" she wrote on a video of herself looking forlorn. A second video followed. "Now: finally moved out of the h*** house, had a spiritual awakening, own 2 cats, happy single, full of self love, and dropped out of high school :)," the text on the clip read. Speaking to Jeff this week, Denise added that she and Charlie "can agree to disagree" on their parenting approaches, but added that's she's "not a strict mom," she just has "rules and boundaries." Denise, 50, also shares Lola, 16, with Charlie. Her husband is currently in the process of adopting her third child, 10-year-old Eloise.

Adele shows off her pole-dancing moves in surprise club appearance
Adele must have been feeling pretty inspired by her chat with Graham Norton for the Feb. 11 edition of his show this week, because after the taping, she headed to London's Heaven nightclub — and showed off her stripper pole moves. Footage on social media also showed the singer dancing to "It's Raining Men" and watching contestants in a pole dance contest that was being judged by former "RuPaul's Drag race UK" star Cheryl Hole. According to ET, Adele eventually asked Cheryl if she could help with the judging duties. "Can I please have a say so into who wins?" she says in one clip. "Adele, you can have the final say. You're f****** Adele, I'm little old Cheryl," Cheryl jokes in response before Adele picks a winner, who proceeds to scream and jump up and down. During her appearance on "The Graham Norton Show," the Grammy-winner was asked about the massive bling she's been wearing on her all-important finger since the BRIT Awards. "If I was, would I ever tell anyone if I was or wasn't?" she teased, without confirming or denying her rumored engagement to beau Rich Paul. She also said she'd be back in Las Vegas to perform after canceling her residency, telling the late-night host, the postponed shows "[have] to happen this year because I've got plans for next year." She added, "Imagine if I have to cancel because I am having a baby!"
Kanye West takes another dig at Pete Davidson in new track
Once again, Kanye West appears to be using music to vent about Kim Kardashian's relationship with "Saturday Night Live" star Pete Davidson. In the wake of last month's release of "Easy," which featured the line "God saved me from that crash / just so I can beat Pete Davidson's a**" — Ye has surfaced on a new track from Fivio Foreign called "City of Gods." According to TMZ, his cameo includes the lyric, "This afternoon, a hundred goons pullin' up to 'SNL' … When I pull up, it's dead on arrival." Later, he raps, "And if I let 'em have my wife, n***** should thank me … With this Balenciaga and Balenci' boots and a new blue Yankee." Pete, meanwhile, is reportedly shrugging off Kanye's repeated public gripe sessions about the comic's new romance with the rapper's ex. "Pete is focusing on his relationship with Kim and making sure she feels supported," a source tells the outlet, "the rest is just noise." Ye's latest Pete dig comes after the rapper used social media to demand Billie Eilish "apologize to" Travis Scott "and to the families of the people who lost their lives" at Astroworld. He was referring to a performance earlier this week during which Billie stopped her show to help someone in the audience who was having trouble breathing. "I wait for people to be OK until I keep going," she told the audience before resuming. "NO ONE INTENDED THIS TO HAPPEN TRAV DIDN'T HAVE ANY IDEA OF WHAT WAS HAPPENING WHEN HE WAS ON STAGE AND WAS VERY HURT BY WHAT HAPPENED," Kanye wrote, adding an ultimatum that Billie had to apologize or he wouldn't perform at Coachella, where she's also reportedly headlining. Billie responded to Ye's post by commenting, "literally never said a thing about travis. was just helping a fan."

Anderson Cooper's son Wyatt now has a baby brother — and both little boys have two dads, Anderson and the CNN anchor's ex, Benjamin Maisani. Anderson announced the happy news on "Anderson Cooper 360″ on Feb. 10, telling viewers Sebastian arrived via surrogate. He also revealed Benjamin is formally adopting Wyatt, who turns 2 in April. "This is Sebastian Luke Maisani-Cooper," Anderson shared on the show. "He was 6.8 lbs. at birth and he was healthy and happy and even his occasional hiccups, are to me, adorable." He added, "Wyatt and Sebastian are being raised by my best friend and former partner, Benjamin Maisani. We're co-parents," he continued. "Wyatt calls me 'daddy' and Benjamin 'papa.' We're a family. Benjamin is also in the process of adopting Wyatt, who's last name will be changed to Maisani-Cooper as well." He also offered a touching tribute to his late mother, father and brother, saying, "These past 22 months, I felt them watching over us very strongly and I already feel their love for Sebastian. The family I was born into may be gone, but I feel them alive in the family we've created, new love, and new life." Anderson and Benjamin called it quits as a couple in 2018. "It's probably an unusual setup," Anderson told People last year of the co-parenting arrangement, "… but I knew he would be a great dad, and he is."
Reese Witherspoon celebrates Jennifer Aniston's 'endless positivity' in sweet birthday tribute
Jennifer Aniston turned 53 on Feb. 11, a milestone her co-star on "The Morning Show" marked with a sweet tribute on Instagram. "When I think of Jen and all the wonderful adventures we have had together, I just smile," Reese Witherspoon captioned a photo of the two joking around on the Apple TV+ series set.

Bob Saget's cause of death was accidental 'head trauma'
Comic Bob Saget's death on Jan. 9 was "the result of blunt head trauma," according to a medical examiner's report viewed by Page Six. The outlet reports the actor and comic had multiple fractures on his skull and abrasions on his scalp after he was found in his hotel room in Orlando, Florida, last month. "It is most probable that the decedent suffered an unwitnessed fall backwards and struck the posterior aspect of his head," the report said. The office ruled the death an "accident." Bob, 65, was also still showing a "COVID-positive" respiratory system, though it's not uncommon for people to continue testing positive for up to three months after they've recovered from a bout with COVID-19, according to the CDC. "They have concluded that he accidentally hit the back of his head on something, thought nothing of it and went to sleep," Bob's family said in a statement after receiving the autopsy results. "No drugs or alcohol were involved." Going forward, they asked fans "to remember the love and laughter that Bob brought to this world, and the lessons he taught us all: to be kind to everyone, to let the people you love know you love them, and to face difficult times with hugs and laughter."
Jamie Lynn Spears is reportedly launching a podcast
With her family-centric memoir on shelves and her name back in the headlines, Britney Spears' sister Jamie Lynn Spears is said to be planning "phase three" of her entertainment industry comeback. TMZ reports the former Nickelodeon star, 30, is gearing up to launch a podcast, where "no topics will be off-limits." While no title or release date has been reported, the contents of her book and what she's said in recent interviews suggest her famous big sister's name is likely to come up on the show, which aims to offer guests "a safe place to talk," according to TMZ. Judging from Brit's response to Jamie Lynn's book (the original title of which came from one of Britney's hit songs), we're also willing to guess the singer, 40, will share her feelings about whatever's said on the podcast with her Instagram followers. Britney, 40, has been feuding publicly with her younger sibling regularly in the months since her conservatorship was terminated and no longer follows Jamie Lynn on Instagram.
Channing Tatum on how he overcame his fear of being a single dad
Channing Tatum admits he was scared by the prospect of co-parenting his daughter Everly, now 8, after he split from Everly's mom, Jenna Dewan. But as he told his pal Jonah Hill for a new interview in V magazine's VMAN 48, he eventually figured out an important key to fatherhood. "I know that I liked to act and play make-believe and magical things, but I just didn't know if I was going to be able to meet her on her level, especially now that I'm a single dad. I was doubly afraid," explained Channing, 41. "Was I going to be able to do any of the stuff that a mother should do? That a mother, as a woman, can relate to her as? And then as that journey unfolded, I realized that all I really had to do was just go into her world and do whatever that is that she wanted to do." The "Dog" director also opened up about working with Sandra Bullock and Brad Pitt in "The Lost City," out next month. "There's no shocking thing at all to me when you meet Sandra. She's just exactly who you want her to be — the most wonderful, brilliant sweetheart," he gushed. "She produced the film and knows every single thing on the set and how much it cost, kind of person." He added, "Brad in this movie is hilarious. If we ever do 'Jump Street 3,' we have to — I'm telling you, he's comic gold if you put him with the right character."
