Tarek El Moussa spotted making out with a new love interest
Tarek El Moussa is moving from his ex-wife, Christina Anstead — with someone who bears more than a passing resemblance to her. The "Flip or Flop" star was recently spotted making out with Heather Rae Young in Redondo Beach, Calif., on a yacht. Photos published by TMZ show the new flame has long blonde hair and similar features to Christina, who's now married to Ant Anstead and expecting a child. The resemblance doesn't stop with Heather's looks, though. Like Christina (and Tarek), Heather works in real estate and appears on a reality show, though her focus is luxury building sales and she appears on the Netflix series, "Selling Sunset." Tarek and Christina split in 2016 and finalized their divorce last year.

How Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry handle their long distance love after getting engaged
For Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom, planning a wedding is about more than the logistics of picking the right venue, dress and guests for a magical day. It's about getting to a place where they feel 100 percent ready to say "I do" and mean it, particularly when they know their busy schedules will keep them physically apart more than some couples. Right now, for example, Orlando's filming his upcoming Amazon series, "Carnival Row," in the Czech Republic while Katy travels for a variety work reasons. "That's part of the job, right?" he told People at the TCA Press Tour over the weekend. "You have to do the groundwork together, create the feeling of trust and safety so that you can spend time apart and do everything that you need to do and still feel tethered to that person, so that you can go on a journey together." The way Orlando sees it, the two are in wedding planning mode — just, as he put it, "in the sense that we are doing all the work necessary to lay a really grounded foundation to our relationship." Orlando popped the question to Katy on Valentine's Day after the two dated on and off for three years.

Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon weigh in on the possibility of a third season for 'Big Little Lies'
At the outset, "Big Little Lies" was planned to run for just one season. Its ending seemed finite, too, in part because it was based on the novel by Liane Moriarty. But as Nicole Kidman told Entertainment Weekly in a recent interview alongside her co-star and co-executive producer, Reese Witherspoon, they felt there were still enough stories to be told about the characters that a second season was warranted. Whether a third season could work, too, remains to seen — and in their chat with EW, both Nicole and Reese made it clear they're open to bringing the so-called "Monterey 5" back. Asked about the open-ended aspects of the Season 2 finale, Nicole explained: "It's so important not to discuss all of the intricacies of this, because if we do a season 3, there's going to be things that will be explained. It's probably better to allow just a little mystery. I know the voracious appetite for knowledge and to leave no stone unturned. But I'm always going to fight for just a little bit…there can be a few mysteries and secrets held intact." Reese agreed. "If there are conversations still to be had, I think that's really what determines if we can tell a season 3," she said. "Is it as good as season 1 and 2? Does the audience still have questions? Do we have answers?" Ultimately, Nicole said the decision will be an all-hands on deck situation. "It's a collaboration. We work as a group," she said. "We are incredibly tight; we talk to each other, and we are on each other's side. So, we will decide as a group. We listen to the way in which people react because so much of TV is a very immediate medium. Every single person who has made this has said this show is bigger than any single one of us."
Jason Momoa leaves a hilarious comment on a photo of Zoe Kravitz's husband
Jason Momoa clearly approves of his stepdaughter, Zoe Kravitz's new husband, Karl Glusman, even if his Stepdad Stamp of Approval is a teensy bit, shall we say, non-traditional …? Over the weekend, Zoe, 30, shared a somewhat brooding, male model-ready photo of her man on Instagram, captioning the pic, "husband." Jason, 39, was apparently impressed with the pic, and opted to leave a comment. Mincing zero words, the "Game of Thrones" alum chimed in, "Sexy mother f—–." Hey, takes one to know one, as they say …
Cardi B slams pro-Trump trolls on Instagram
Cardi B wants every American with the power to influence young voters to post educational, positive information about Democratic presidential candidates, a suggestion she made in an impassioned video post on Instagram on Sunday, July 23, ahead of the next round of Democratic candidate debates. Her post wasn't exactly well received by Republican and pro-Donald Trump fans, though. After a slew of commenters slammed her for wading into politics and suggested she should "stick to rapping" instead, Cardi posted a second video in which she broke down her reasons for sharing what she had to say on the matter. According to The Blast, she later deleted the post-po vid, which opened by declaring "y'all were coming for me on my last video," and went on to explain that she's been "preaching about politics since I had crooked teeth," citing multiple examples of her interest in government, where, when and how she's spoken out about politics and her support of the left and the fact that she's "not doing this for clout," which given her current music sales level, she has plenty of.
Laverne Cox is disappointed no transgender stars from 'Pose' were nominated for Emmys
Back in 2014, "Orange Is the New Black" star Laverne Cox became the first transgender person to be nominated for an Emmy Award in an acting category. In 2019, she's up for her third Emmy — she's also more than ready to see other transgender stars get the kind of recognition she's earned, particularly given the critical acclaim "Pose" has earned. "I am obsessed with 'Pose,'" Laverne told Andy Cohen on the latest "Watch What Happens Live" (via E! News). "I love the show so much. I have so many friends on 'Pose' and I was overjoyed [to be nominated again]. I was disappointed, though, because at this point I am still the only transgender actor to ever be nominated for an acting Emmy." Though "Pose" is up fro Emmys in multiple categories, none of the show's transgender stars were nominated. "I'm so grateful for my third nomination…but there are so many trans actors on TV now who are killing it, which is brilliant, and so many on that show are killing it. I'm excited the show is excited, but I'm like, 'more!'" Laverne also shared her mixed feelings about the state of the world for the trans community, saying that while great strides have been made, having such a conservative president in Donald Trump has made things harder overall. "It's sort of the best and worst of times for trans people," she mused, "'cause, like, there's so much unprecedented representation on television and then in the world with this administration, there's, like, all these attacks on us …" Laverne is up for Best Guest Actress when the Emmys return Sept. 22, on FOX.
Jessie J shuts down Channing Tatum questions in new interview
Jessie J may be more open to acknowledging her relationship with Channing Tatum these days, but she's not letting her love life take precedence over conversations about her work. She made that clear in a recent interview with "This Morning," where she was asked to discuss her role as a judge on "The Voice Kids." At one point, according to JustJared, the interviewer asked about Jessie and Channing's visit to a performance of "Magic Mike Live." "You obviously got to see it with Mike himself," he said. She replied, "I did," but before the interviewer could continue, she cut him off, telling him, "… [That's] the opposite of 'The Voice Kids,' I think let's stay focused on 'The Voice Kids.'"
Strong police presence expected at Nipsey Hussle's store on his birthday
Nipsey Hussle would have turned 34 on Aug. 15, had he not been shot and killed in front of his Marathon clothing store in Los Angeles. As that milestone grows closer, police in the late rapper's hometown are already making arrangements to keep things safe for the thousands of fans they expect to come out to honor Nipsey in the neighborhood that day, just as they did back in April at his memorial and funeral procession. TMZ reports the LAPD currently expects to send "more than 100 officers" to the area, including plenty dressed in plainclothes so as not to appear "threatening." The region around the strip mall where Marathon is located has long been a hotbed of gang activity, in spite of Nipsey's devoted advocacy efforts in the realm of gang violence.
Celine Dion's inner circle concerned backup dancer is exerting too much influence over her
In the years since she lost her husband, Rene Angelil, Celine Dion's become close to backup dancer, Pepe Munoz, who now serves as her creative director. Though she's insisted their relationship is not romantic — Pepe, 34, is reportedly gay — members of her inner circle have allegedly expressed concern Pepe's exerting an unhealthy amount of influence on the singer. "Pepe is like her boy toy who is really trying to take over," one source tells Page Six. "He's isolating her and people are feeling it. She's in love with this guy and listens to everything he's saying. People go to him when they have questions. He's fully taken over. The only people around her now [are] Pepe, the hairdresser and the stylist." Other sources echoed that sentiment, with one telling the tab "people are freaked out by" the dynamic between Celine and Pepe and don't trust how limiting he's been for her. "He has this clique that he keeps very small. It's Céline, himself, a hair person and the stylist. That's the group — even management goes to him when they need something," the source says. Multiple people are also under the impression Pepe was behind the departure of members of Celine's senior team. But a source close to the singer has said claims of his influence being dangerous are baseless. "He's an amazing inspiration for her," that insider says. "He's inspiring her to take risks. It's not a bad thing. He's not managing her. People change their teams. She's smart and at the helm of her career. She's calling the shots now." With her long-running Las Vegas residency having come to an end, Celine is slated to hit the road on a new tour this fall. She also plans to release a new album later in the year.
