Julian Sands' death remains a mystery… at least to the authorities. The San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department revealed that the county's coroner has ruled his cause of death is "undetermined." Julian's remains were found in June, six months after the British actor — who most notably appeared in "Leaving Las Vegas" and "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" — disappeared while hiking around Mount Baldy in Southern California during a snow storm. (He never returned to his car.) Severe weather previously hampered search efforts at the time of his disappearance — his snow-covered car was found in California's San Gabriel Mountains a few days after he last made contact. Hikers eventually came across his remains on June 24 after snow in the area finally melted. While it's known where he died, a police spokesman said the official manner of death is "undetermined due to the condition of the body," which is "common when dealing with cases of this type."

Daymond John was granted a permanent restraining order against three former "Shark Tank" contestants following a disagreement over a business deal. On a 2014 episode of "Shark Tank," former NFL defensive end Al "Bubba" Baker, wife Sabrina and daughter Brittani struck an investment deal with Daymond for their Bubba's Q Boneless Baby Back Ribs. The family later alleged that Daymond changed the deal once cameras stopped rolling, attempted to take over the company and deprived them of profits. They soon aired out their grievances on social media and lambasted the businessman in the process — which prompted Daymond to go the legal route.
A judge recently sided with the FUBU CEO and ordered the family to clear "disparaging" social media posts, Deadline reported. "All the Bakers' posts are negative, disparaging, or both and certainly could impact DFV's and John's reputation, goodwill, and credibility," US District Judge Robert Kugler said, referring to the DF Ventures entity Daymond set up to do business with the family. "These posts clearly caused reputational harm that John will now have to deal with and counter."
After the judge's ruling, Daymond issued a statement: "Today's decision against the Bakers, their company, and their false statements is a moment of vindication," he said. "The actual facts, the record, and the federal Judge's opinion have confirmed that I did not — and could not have — committed any wrongdoing. I have always upheld transparency and honesty throughout my journey as an entrepreneur. I am grateful for the support that I've received during this time and will continue defending my reputation with the same passion I bring to empowering fellow entrepreneurs."
Her side of the story
Back in 2021, Common claimed that his breakup from Tiffany Haddish was amicable. She's now sharing her side of the story, claiming the breakup wasn't exactly a mutual decision. "It was more him saying, 'I think this relationship has run its course,'" she told The Washington Post. "And I was like, 'OK. Like, you gonna be a 50-year-old single man. OK?'" The comedian — who dated Common in 2020 and 2021 — said the writing was on the wall when he stopped inviting her to events… including his birthday celebration. He ended up dumping her over the phone.
Tiffany also told The Washington Post that she recently experienced her eighth pregnancy loss. She went on to explain why she keeps her health struggles close to the vest: "I don't want people saying: 'Are you okay? Are you all right?' Like a wounded animal, I just rather go in a cave by myself. Lick my wounds," the actress said.
John Stamos revealed that he tried to quit "Full House" because he was jealous of his 5-year-old co-star. The show, he said, also turned out much differently that he initially expected. "I hated that show but grew to love it. It was pitched to me as a 'Bosom Buddies' [type show] … with, you know, a couple of kids in the background," he said on a recent episode of "Hot Ones," adding that when he did an early table read, he "was the star."
He also wondered why such strong emphasis was being put on casting the kids, whom he thought would be glorified extras. "We sit down and we started reading, and Jodie Sweetin, who plays Stephanie, reads her lines, and people are dying laughing. I mean screaming. I was like, 'What's happening here?'" he recalled. "They couldn't even hear my lines, they were laughing so hard at her."
The actor immediately wanted off the show, but Bob Saget calmed him down. "I fought it for a long time. I finally said, 'What am I doing?' It's a beautiful show we built with sweetness and kindness," John said. "There was no central character on that show is what I realized. The central character was love and we were the best representation of a loving family, not a 'normal' family. And it was the new normal, now an unconventional family."
Ethan Slater's estranged wife, singer Lilly Jay, is reportedly "devastated" by the news that he is now dating his "Wicked" co-star Ariana Grande. "This is not the future she had in mind," said an "Entertainment Tonight" source. "She's doing her best to get back on her feet. She's incredibly smart and driven… She is truly the best mother."
Ethan and Lilly married in 2018 and welcomed a son last year. Earlier this month, it was confirmed that Ariana and her husband of two years, Dalton Gomez, are divorcing. Days later, the news broke that Ariana and Ethan are now an item, and Ethan promptly made his social media accounts private.
In November 2022, the actor publicly gushed over his wife on Instagram in honor of their anniversary. "My best friend. 4 years married, 10 years together. And this is easily the best (and most *bizarre*) year yet," he wrote. Ariana liked the post.
Kim Zolciak and Kroy Biermann's marriage is allegedly on the rocks again after they heard comments they made about each other in police body cam footage. Back in May, authorities showed up to the duo's home following a verbal argument. Police video shows Kroy call Kim a "narcissist" as he argued that she was using their fight as a "manipulation" tactic. The former NFL star also said that the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" alum is a "compulsive behavior addict." Kim, meanwhile, claimed Kroy locked her out of their home and said he was acting "f****** crazy." "Something's wrong with his mind. Something's not right," she told police, adding that she couldn't "keep doing this all [her] life."
On the heels of their divorce announcement, things got incredibly messy between Kim and Kroy. However, they called off their divorce earlier this month and reconciled. The body cam footage has thrown a wrench in their happy reconciliation, friends say.
