Mariah Carey rumored to have undergone gastric sleeve surgery
Has the "bleak" diet of Norwegian salmon and capers Mariah Carey forced herself to try last year been replaced with a new weight loss approach? A source tells the New York Post the singer had gastric sleeve surgery this fall after a combination of factors left her frustrated with her figure and the comments she was seeing about it online. "Mariah has always been proud of her curves, but this summer, as her Caesars Palace residency came to a close, and then she went on tour with Lionel Richie, she noticed it became harder to dance, and she was getting a lot more criticism online from body shamers," said the insider. "Mariah underwent the procedure about a month ago, and she is already seeing some good results, and she feels a lot better." Although Mariah's rep declined to comment, the singer has complained in the past about how online chatter about her figure makes her feel, telling the Sunday Times she's "a pretty insecure person" who struggles with her self-image.

The lovebirds, who split in September 2016 after two years ago before reuniting in August, hosted the Xbox One x VIP Event & Xbox Live Session in New York City on Monday, Nov. 6, looking happy and comfortable in photos.

Sophie Turner defends 'Stranger Things' stars' rights to privacy
Sophie Turner's lived her life in the spotlight since she landed the role of Sansa Stark on Game of Thrones" when she was 15. Now, at 21, she's concerned about other young actors and their relationships with the paparazzi. On Monday, Nov. 6, Sophie apparently saw photographers vying to get candid pictures of the young "Stranger Things" cast. The newly engaged star was appalled at the photographers' behavior and hopped on Twitter to assert the kids' privacy rights were being violated. "Damn… seeing fully grown adults wait outside the Stranger Things kids' hotels, etc, and then abuse them when they don't stop for them is super weird," she tweeted. "A — what adult in their right mind waits for a CHILD outside their hotel, and b — is then is offended when the CHILD doesn't stop?" In other tweets, she pointed out the stars should get to be "kids first," adding, "Give them the space they need in order to grow without feeling like they owe anyone anything for living their childhood dreams." She continued: "Imagine you, a parent, walking with your 13-year-old son/daughter and seeing a fully grown adult pointing their camera phone at your kid. You would do anything you could to delete that person's photograph, and remove your child from that situation as soon as you could. … It doesn't matter if that child happens to be an actor and consented to a professional film crew capturing their moves when in character. That does NOT mean that this child consented to being followed around with a camera in their face," the TV star added. "I don't care if it 'comes with the job,' it doesn't." Finally, she posted: "How dare you shun and demean that child when they don't pose for an adult stranger's photograph or walk over and talk to them when they take that NOT CONSENTED FOR photo. Doesn't that go against everything we teach our children anyway? Pshhhh. Some people man."

Jimmy Kimmel's son's surgery has been postponed
After taking a week off, Jimmy Kimmel was back on the air on Monday, Nov. 6, sharing an update about 6-month-old son's health. "Officially, I was off because my son Billy was supposed to have his next heart surgery," Jimmy explained (via Us Weekly). As he told his audience in May, Billy was born with a heart problem. Doctors were able to save him with the first of what will be multiple surgeries, but the experience has taken an understandably emotional toll on Jimmy and his wife, Molly McNearney, and the late-night host hasn't shied away from discussing the situation on the show. Jimmy went on to say the second surgery did not happen as planned because everyone in the family had colds. "But the truth is, I was waiting in line for the new iPhone all week," he cracked. "Anyway, my son is doing fine. I want to thank everyone who filled in for me. Shaquille O'Neal, who I would like to thank twice — because he's enormous," he continued, referencing the celebs who sat in for him last week while he was away. "It was good to have some time at home with the kids. But there is such a thing as too much time at home with the kids. And last night at abut 6 o'clock, I reached that time limit," he joked.
Adam Levine announces his baby-to-be's gender
In a couple of months, Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo expect to welcome their second child. And as he told Ellen DeGeneres in the Tuesday, Nov. 7, edition of "Ellen," it's another girl for the couple, whose first child, Dusty Rose, was born in September of last year. Asked how Behati is doing (via E! News), Adam said his wife is "just like a champion of the world … she's killing it." He added, "You wouldn't know she's almost seven months pregnant." Adam also teased Ellen about the fact that she picked out their first daughter's name. "Like it or not, you're going to be involved with this next one, too," he said. "It'll be a collaborative effort. We're already working on it." If Adam and Behati beat Ellen to a name for their next little one, the talk show host might still have more chances to name the couple's kids. "I want a lot [of kids]," he said. I thrive in chaos. I really genuinely enjoy it." As for Behati, Adam said she grew up as only child, which makes her want an even bigger family than Adam. "She wants like 100 babies," he joked, "but I don't know if I could do that."
