Brad Pitt's love life is not as busy as the tabs would have us believe. Over the last few days, rumors the actor is dating MIT professor Neri Oxman and/or jewelry designer and holistic healer Sat Hari, have both been put to rest, courtesy of the New York Times and Gossip Cop. Neri, who was linked to Brad in the spring, recently spoke to the New York Times, telling the paper she is dating hedge funder William A. Ackman — not Brad, though she did heap praise on the star, calling him "the last of the Mohicans in post-Netflix Hollywood," and applauding his ability to bring "together the timely and the timeless … which is what cinema is all about." Gossip Cop, meanwhile, broke down the Sat Hari rumors, which surfaced after the jeweler attended a benefit event for the Silverlake Conservatory of Music last weekend. The website reports that Sat and Brad are both simply friends with the Red Hot Chili Peppers' drummer, Flea, who, along with the Chili Peppers, founded the the event.

Other stars at the polo match included Olivia Wilde, Garcelle Beauvais, Rumor Willis and cast members from Mandy's show, "This Is Us," according to E! News.

Billy Bush questions why Donald Trump hasn't been held accountable for leaked tapes remarks
Billy Bush is thinking about the events that triggered his career downfall. "Two years ago today, my life went from order to chaos in a dramatic instant," he posted on Instagram this week, according to Page Six. "I accounted for my small part, while the President and my employer walked away and still haven't accounted for their actions," he continued, referring to the leak of tapes that featured Donald Trump saying he grabbed women by their privates and got away with it because he's "a star." "These past couple years have been character building to say the least – anxiety attacks, fits of rage, feelings of betrayal and abandonment – and I have concluded that I am NOT extraordinary. Terrible things can happen at any moment to ANYONE. On the positive side, I feel grateful to know adversity as intimately as I do, and to have developed more empathy, humility and resilience. And to know you can laugh even in the darkest hour is a blessing. Especially at yourself." He ended his post with this thought: "I have an idea. Let's stop tolerating this escalating war on flaws and the obliteration of people for things we all do," he continued. "It's fueled by an activist media and (anti) social media and it's barbaric. We are humans and thus fallible. Let's take better care of each other."
