A glimpse into their marriage
Tom Brady gave a rare glimpse into his relationship with supermodel Gisele Bundchen this week, admitting she "wasn't satisfied with our marriage" for a while. "A couple of years ago, she didn't feel like I was doing my part for the family," he told radio host Howard Stern on April 8. "She felt like I would play football all season and she would take care of the house, and then all of a sudden when the season ended, I'd be like, 'Great, let me get into all of my other business activities. Let me get into my football training.'" Soon, for the sake of his marriage, Tom was skipping voluntary football activities, something he never did in the past. "She's sitting there going, 'Well, when are you going to do things for the house? When are you going to take the kids to school and do that?' And that was a big part of our marriage. I had to, like, check myself. Because she's like, 'I have goals and dreams too.'" He noted that the couple attended marriage counseling after Gisele wrote him a letter about the status of their marriage. "She wasn't satisfied with our marriage," he said, "so I needed to make a change in that."

Absolutely," he said on Nick Viall's April 7 podcast. "We're not dating. Could I see that in the future? Yeah, of course. I'd be extremely lucky and very happy if that happened. Of anyone, I'm the last person that needs to rush into any kind of relationship. I just had an engagement that didn't work out. I just was trying to pursue things with another woman that didn't work out. That's why right now, I'm just taking it really, really slow."
Nothing like getting engaged in quarantine! "The Real" co-host Jeannie Mai and rapper Jeezy announced on April 6 that they were engaged.

We are praying love over everyone from here."
Same ol' "View"

"They're always talking about me leaving the show," Joy said on the show on April 9. "But I'm not leaving the show." She added, "Let me say that rumors of my retirement have been greatly exaggerated. You know, here's the thing, what am I going to do? This pandemic has changed the game. At one point you think, 'Gee, I could retire and take a cruise around the world.' I won't even watch reruns of 'Love Boat' at this point. So where am I gonna go?" Joy's contract is up 2022, but ABC has already said she'll always have a chair on "The View" if she wants it.
In the battle
Pink was opening up all week about the battle with coronavirus that she and her 3-year-old son, Jameson, endured. Unfortunately, the little guy had it worse that Pink, noting his 103 degree fever. "At one point when he started throwing up and saying he had chest pains and it hurt to breathe, that's the point where you just kind of like, 'OK, are we going to the hospital? What are we doing right now?' Because this is the scariest thing I've ever, ever been through in my whole life," she tearfully told Ellen DeGeneres on April 9, adding that doctors told her that there was nothing they could do. Their advice: stay home. The tyke and his mom are now feeling better and both are on the back end of the virus. During her battle, Pink never experienced a fever. "I woke up in the middle of the night and couldn't breathe and I needed to get to a nebulizer for the first time in 30 years," she says. "I have this inhaler that I use, this rescue inhaler, and I couldn't function without it, and that's when I started to get really scared."
