Teresa Giudice is 'dodging' Joe Giudice's calls: Report
When Teresa Giudice was serving her sentence in prison for fraud, she was careful about how she presented herself and her situation to her husband, Joe Giudice. Now that he's serving his own term, however, he's not exactly returning the favor of keeping things positive. That's according to In Touch, which reports Joe is getting increasingly nasty with her when they talk — to the point she's trying to avoid him. "Joe has been more and more verbally abusive to Teresa over the phone. He's been angrily calling Teresa at home, but she's been dodging his calls," says an insider. "She has said, 'Enough is enough. I don't need to put up with this,' He's making her feel awful. All Joe ever does is bring Teresa down and complain about how miserable he is in prison." The source goes on to point out that the way he's handling his incarceration in general isn't sitting well with her. "If she had lost her s— on Joe at any point while she was in prison, she knew there would be a risk that he would go off the rails and stop taking her calls. So she had to remain positive and upbeat the entire time," the insider says. "Joe was so controlling," a source adds. "Teresa feels free with him in prison." It's not the first report suggesting Joe's having trouble behind bars. Other insiders said he was "falling into a depression" last fall. More recently, Teresa admitted she and her daughters are now only visiting their dad once a month. "Will I still be married to Joe in 40 years? I have no idea," she mused in September. "You don't know what life will bring."

Prince Harry reflects on Princess Diana's leadership at Obama Foundation summit
Like his mother before him, Prince Harry seems committed to using his royal status to make the world a better place. On the heels of his latest Invictus Games, the prince joined Barack Obama and Michelle Obama at the couple's first-ever Obama Foundation leadership summit in Chicago, where he spoke with Mellody Hobson, the president of Ariel Investments, LLC, about why Princess Diana became known as "the people's princess" and about the power he believes young people have to solve the world's greatest challenges. Describing his late mother, Harry reflected on Diana's determination to remain engaged with others. "I think she had a lot in common with everybody but also she certainly listened in a very, very short space of time. In society we suffer from this illusion or this reality where some problems get so big that nobody wants to get involved. She was the one that changed that," he said, according to E! News. "I will always look up to her as being my ideal role model." Asked what inspires him, the prince spoke in glowing terms about the young people of the world. "The younger generation of the world has turned me into an optimist … they have the solutions to some of the world's biggest problems," he said. "We have to listen to the younger generation because they are the cure to some of the world's biggest problems — they are the cure of many communities as well."

Kesha accuses Dr. Luke of trying to use publicists and a birthday card against her in court
Kesha's court battle with producer Dr. Luke wages on — and now, she's concerned he's taking tips on how to deal with sexual harassment claims from the likes of Bill O'Reilly. "Consistent with Bill O'Reilly's recent strategy of releasing Megyn Kelly's old thank-you notes to rebut her sexual-harassment complaints, Dr. Luke attached to his complaint a birthday card signed 'Ke$ha' thanking Dr. Luke for 'making my wildest dreams come true,'" Kesha's legal team says in a new court filing, according to the New York Post. Dr. Luke has reportedly attempted to obtain documents from her public relations staff, a move Kesha is fighting. According to the Post, the new documents also suggest Kesha's refusal to back down on her claim Dr. Luke sexually assaulted her ultimately nixed any movement toward a settlement between the two.

Chris Hemsworth says 'Ghostbusters' helped inspire 'Thor'
Fans of the rebooted version of "Ghostbusters" might find they like "Thor: Ragnarok" for similar reasons. "It was a bit of encouragement for this film and what we could do, and experiment — a lot more with improvisation. I credit 'Ghostbusters,' 'Saturday Night Live,' 'Vacation' as sort of a lead-up to this film," Chris Hemsworth told the New York Post this week. "We're shooting [the next] 'Avengers' [movie] at the moment, and we did a scene the other day with Robert Downey Jr., Jeremy Renner, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo — and all of us were sitting there, going, 'Who knows if we're ever going to get a chance to do this again, and what a ride it's been.' Hopefully that's a friendship that will carry for a long, long time. I'm very lucky." "Thor" is due out Friday, Nov. 3.
