Speaking out post-accident
Kevin Hart is finally speaking out about his near-fatal car accident: He shared a video of his recovery on Instagram on Oct. 29. "Basically what you realize is that you're not in control. No matter how much you think you're in control, you're not in control," he says over the video as it opens. "At the end of the day, it can all be over, man." The words, "My world was changed forever" showed up on the screen. Kevin has said next to nothing publicly about the Sept. 1 car accident that left him with a fractured spine, other comments wishing the other people in the car well in their recoveries. The video shows him in a hospital bed, presumably right after the accident. It also shows him doing physical therapy. "When God talks, you gotta listen." he said. "I swear, life is funny. Because some of the craziest things that happen to you end up being the thing that you needed most. And in this case, I honestly feel like God basically told me to sit down." Kevin, who reportedly has no plans to sue the driver, said he sees life in a different way now.

The future for Joe Giudice and Teresa Giudice is very much up in the air. During their much-hyped intercontinental interview with Andy Cohen, which aired on Bravo Oct. 27, the couple said divorce is possibility, especially if Joe is permanently deported to Italy, where he's been living for the last few weeks following his release from Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody. "I want the best for him. I want him to be happy and I want him to be successful," Teresa said. "But I don't know if we could stay together, him living across the [world]." During the conversation, they both said they believe the other was not faithful during their marriage. Asked about staying together, Joe said, "If we stay together, we stay together, if we don't, we don't. It's a conversation, we'll see. … As long as she's happy, that's all that really matters. I'm not going to tell her what to do. If she doesn't feel like she wants to be with me anymore, then that's the thing to do." Teresa and their four kids have no plans to call Italy home. "The kids don't want to go there," Teresa said from New York City. "It's like, they've been through enough."
