Rob Kardashian, Blac Chyna are shopping a wedding special
While they've encountered a few bumps in their relationship, all is well, romance-wise, for Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna. In fact, TMZ reports the couple hopes to take a trip down the aisle next year — ideally, for the benefit of TV cameras. While no wedding special deals have been made, TMZ reports Rob and Chyna want to say "I do" in a TV-friendly venue. They wouldn't mind taking home a healthy paycheck for sharing their milestone, either. A special about the birth of their daughter, Dream, reportedly paid the pair hundreds of thousands of dollars and is set to air later this month.

Why Tom Hardy has to get a ridiculous tattoo
There's a new tattoo heading toward Tom Hardy's already well-tatted bod — and the actor's not exactly looking forward to it. "I haven't got it yet," he says in the new Esquire, "because it sucks." Turns out after Tom shot "The Revenant" with Leonardo DiCaprio, Leo bet Tom he'd get an Oscar nomination for his supporting role. Confident in his lack of Oscar prospects, Tom accepted the bet — including the term that said if he did get a nomination, he'd get the tattoo of Leo's choosing. Woops. Guess who got nominated? Explaining how the bet went down and what tattoo he's slated to get was, he continued, "[Leo] wrote, in this really sh—- handwriting: 'Leo knows everything.' Ha! I was like, 'OK, I'll get it done, but you have to write it properly.'"
Taylor Lautner caught smooching his 'Scream Queens' costar Billie Lourd
Looks like "Scream Queens" is doing big things for Taylor Lautner's love life as well as his resume. On Sunday, Dec. 4, the "Twilight" alum was spotted making out with his costar, Billie Lourd, at The Nice Guy in Los Angeles. Their "Scream Queens" colleague Keke Palmer was apparently as surprised as anyone by the hookup and documented a kiss between the two on Snapchat with the caption, "Omg omg omg." Billie and Taylor spent most of the night together, staring into one another's eyes and touching each other, a clubgoer later told E! News. It's not the first time Taylor's been involved with someone he's worked with; the actor dated Marie Avgeropoulos after they met on the set of "Tracers." A few years earlier, a romance blossomed between Taylor and his "Valentine's Day" co-star Taylor Swift.
Mariah Carey, Bryan Tanaka looked extra smitten at viewing party
Mariah Carey and her backup dancer Bryan Tanaka definitely aren't hiding their affection for one another these days. The pair showed up at a New York viewing party for Mimi's new reality show over the weekend and the New York Post reports they couldn't stop smiling at one another and looking generally "smitten." The 33-year-old dancer and choreographer, who was spotted making out with Mariah on a beach in Hawaii last week, has apparently had a thing for the singer for some time. In a trailer for the show, members of Mimi's team can be heard saying they don't know what to do about the huge crush Bryan has on the star, whose split from her fiance, James Packer, has reportedly been bitter.
Is Taylor Swift getting Tom Hiddleston's approval on new music?
Since she first arrived on the pop charts, Taylor Swift's released one new album every two years. October marked the two-year anniversary of the release of "1989," sparking widespread speculation that she's planning to drop a new recording any day now. And while it's fair to assume the next album will feature some references to the singer's recent relationships with Calvin Harris and Tom Hiddleston, OK reports one of those exes has had the chance to approve the music their relationship inspired. A source reportedly told the tabloid Taylor's kept Tom abreast of just how he'll appear in whatever song or songs she may have written about him. "Taylor sends him drafts and loops him in on how the process is going, and nothing will be recorded without Tom's consent," the source is quoted as saying. The insider also claimed Taylor and Tom's brief yet apparently intense affair was all for show — and that the album post-op was part of the plan all along. "This was their deal right from the start of their fauxmance," said the source. "It's a contractual situation and the result is to make them look good." GossipCop, however, insists the tale is untrue. A source close to the actor says there is no "deal" and that the OK! report is "completely false."
Reese Witherspoon's kids aren't fans of her Katy Perry covers
When Reese Witherspoon was preparing for her new animated film "Sing" — in which she handles voice-over duties for a crooning pig named Rosita — she found herself bringing work home from the proverbial office, much to the chagrin of her kids, Ava, 17, Deacon, 13, and Tennessee, 4. "I definitely was singing "Firework" [by Katy Perry] too much," Reese admitted to E! News over the weekend. "I definitely got like, 'Mom, stop singing 'Firework' and 'Shake It Off' all the time." Despite her family's protests, though, the actress had a blast working on the movie. "It was just great! It's fun pop songs too, and getting to sing Taylor Swift and getting to sing Katy Perry was challenging," she said. "I saw both of them while I was shooting and I was like, 'I have a new appreciation for how hard you work.'"
