Wendy Williams has had a rough couple of weeks, and all of it seems to be self-inflicted. Last week, the talk show host was forced to apologize after telling gay men to "stop wearing our skirts and heels." Then on Feb. 17, she caught flack after making a joke about the Feb. 15 murder of "The Price Is Right" host Drew Carey's former fiancé. While discussing the death of marriage and family therapist Amie Harwick — who was killed after, police allege, an obsessed ex-boyfriend pushed her off a third-floor balcony — Wendy said, "come on down," crudely referencing to the game show's signature phrase. After this latest controversy, Wendy's longest running fan page said it was taking a social media hiatus.
Al Pacino and Meital Dohan, his girlfriend of a year and a half, are over… and a lot of it has to do with him being an older man who rarely opened his wallet. In a new interview with Israel's LaIsha magazine, the Israeli actress dished on the split, indicating that their age gap became too much (he's 79, she's 43). "It's hard to be with a man so old, even Al Pacino," she said. "The age gap is difficult, yes. I tried to deny it, but now he is already an elderly man, to be honest. So even with all my love, it didn't last." The magazine asked her if she had any wonderful gifts to remember their romance by, and she apparently laughed off the idea. "He only bought me flowers," she said. "How can I say politely that he didn't like to spend money?"
Did John Cena put a ring on it?

In an interview with The New York Times, he called his divorce from Jennifer Garner the "biggest regret in my life." His divorce and struggle to stay sober went hand in hand. "I drank relatively normally for a long time," he said. "What happened was that I started drinking more and more when my marriage was falling apart. This was 2015, 2016. My drinking, of course, created more marital problems." In a sit-down with Diane Sawyer, which aired on Feb. 20, Ben explained, "I never thought that I was gonna get divorced. I didn't want to get divorced. I didn't want to be a divorced person. I really didn't want to be a split family with my children," he said. "And it upset me because it meant I wasn't who I thought I was. And that was so painful and so disappointing in myself." He added, "Divorce is very painful and alcoholism is very painful. They just are." Ben also publicly thanked Jen. "What I want to say publicly and privately is, 'Thank you,'" Diane shared, reading a note from Ben about his ex, "'thank you for being thoughtful, considerate, responsible and a great mom and person.'"
