Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are reportedly 'staying at opposite ends of the house'
Self-isolating at home with four kids can be taxing on a marriage, and it seems to be taking a toll on the relationship between Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West. Tensions have mounted between the two lately, as Us Weekly reported back in April. Now, The Sun claims the two aren't even sharing the same space in their massive Los Angeles home. "She is frustrated with Kanye and thinks he's not pulling his weight in family responsibilities," a source tells the tab (via the Daily Mail). "They've been staying at opposite ends of the house to keep things civil." Speaking to Us last month, another insider had a similar take on the rift that's supposedly developed between them, saying Kim was "annoyed" with her husband. Hollywood Life, meanwhile, claims Kim simply needed some space. "[She] really needed a break and some alone time so Kanye took the kids away to give her one," said the outlet's source. "She loves the kids so much, but like any mom, she just needed time to herself. She needed a break from the kids and the screaming. The Hollywood Life source went on to say everything is A-OK between Kim and Kanye, calling their relationship "solid," and adding that they're "doing great as a couple."

Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez give up on Mets ownership bid
Looks like Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez won't be buying that ownership stake in the Mets after all. Multiple sources tell the New York Post the Bronx-rooted couple has backed off a sale that would have made them the largest stake-holding owners of the Queens-based ball club. Talk of their interest in buying in began in earnest late last month. Things apparently went south with the "money partner" A-Rod and J.Lo were working with, billionaire Wayne Rothbaum, who made his fortune in biotech, not sports, and is said to have expected too steep of a discount for the beleaguered team. He also reportedly wanted more control than the former Yankees star and singer were interested in sharing.

Why Courteney Cox isn't expecting a great Mother's Day gift from Coco Arquette this year
New moms across the country are gearing up to be honored, praised, feted and showered with gifts this weekend when their first Mother's Day arrives on Sunday. Before they get too crazy with those Mother's Day expectations, however, they may want to heed a word of caution from Courteney Cox, who has 15 years of parenting under her belt. The "Friends" alum told Jimmy Kimmel on his show Thursday that she's historically been disappointed in the gift department on Mother's Days past. The issue seems to be that her teenage daughter Coco Arquette doesn't exactly go for the sentimental gushy-type expression of her love for her mom. Or, as Courteney put it (via ET): "I'm just glad that Spencer's the store is not open because I seem to get a lot of stuff from Oz. Last year Coco got me a book, I think, 'The Sound of Farts?' Like, I love farts, I do. I love a fart joke. But I don't want that." So what does she want? "I want to have a nice handwritten letter, something talking about her feelings for me," Courteney said, seemingly unaware of how well teenagers respond to a good public shaming …

Andrew Scott reveals why he wanted the 'Hot Priest' role on 'Fleabag'
At this point, we've nearly drained our "what to watch while social distancing" streaming lists. If you're in the same boat and a "Fleabag" fan, you'll be happy to know Andrew Scott — aka "The Hot Priest" and love interest of Phoebe Waller-Bridge's character in her award-winning series — recently consented to re-watch with British GQ the now infamous love scene between Fleabag and the priest, while sharing his thoughts about it on camera.

Andrew Cuomo weighs in on Robert De Niro's comments about playing him in a movie
There may be a bromance in the making for Robert De Niro and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. The actor praised Cuomo on "The Late Show" this week for his strong handling of the pandemic in New York, telling Stephen Colbert the state's head honcho is "doing what any president should do," according to CNN. When the conversation turned to the inevitability of a movie being made about the COVID crisis, De Niro volunteered eagerly to play his political hero. On Thursday, Colbert welcomed Cuomo as a video chat guest on the show, where the governor quickly gave two thumbs-up to the idea of De Niro playing him. "He is just phenomenal. The breadth of his ability, I mean, just look at all the roles he's played," Cuomo said. "He can do anything, right?' Deer Hunter,' 'Cape Fear,' he can do comedy … how 'bout 'Taxi Driver'?" later, he considered taking a page from the star's "Taxi Driver" performance for his next press conference. "You talking to me?" Cuomo joked, reciting De Niro's famous line from the '70s classic. "Oh, boy, that'd be a treat," he mused. "I'm a big De Niro fan. He's a genius." Last month, Dr. Anthony Fauci shared similarly glowing remarks about Brad Pitt after the actor played him in an "SNL" bit.
