Matt Damon won't advise George Clooney when it comes to his twins
Speaking of the "bro code" … New dad George Clooney and father of four Matt Damon have been pals for years, so when Matt stopped by "Ellen" this week, the show host couldn't resist asking how his buddy — and "Suburbicon" director — was handling his new life with 4-month-olds Alexander and Ella. "It took him until his 50's but I think he grew up finally. He's loving it, he's great and he's a lot calmer than I thought he would be with twins," Matt said (via JustJared). "He did confide in me that they went onto solid foods last week and so he's trying to get off of diaper duty now. That's a whole other level. He was like 'diapers are easy,' and I was like, 'wait for it.'" Not that Matt bothered trying to tell George what to do when faced with such situations, given that Matt's girls are all different ages. "People ask if I give him advice and I'm like, 'no'," Matt deadpanned. "… Two babies at once, that's horrific.'"

Are tensions flaring between Drake and The Weeknd over Bella Hadid?
Two years ago, The Weeknd sounded like he had mixed feelings about his fellow Toronto musician, Drake, who helped push his music into the spotlight by using a number of his songs on a 2011 album. He was "grateful" and felt Drizzy was his "closest friend in the industry" at the time, he said, but he also admitted "it was hard" to give up so much music he hoped to use on his own album. A new report from the New York Post suggests those not-so-positive vibes between the two are back. But this time, they're allegedly pegged to The Weeknd's ex, Bella Hadid, whom Drake is rumored to be dating. The Weeknd and Drake "both hang in the same Toronto crew and now [friends are] having to pick sides," a source told the Post. "The Weeknd performed and people on Drake's side were like, 'I can't show up to that … Got to have allegiance.' They aren't getting along right now …" The insider added, "The groups are beefing because [Drake] broke the bro code. They 100 percent hooked up." Drake reportedly threw Bella a 21st birthday party in New York City. Bella's mom, Yolanda Hadid, has only confirmed that the two "are friends." (Feeling a sudden sense of deja vu? That's probably because Bella unfollowed her once close friend Selena Gomez from social media after Selena started dating Bella's ex, The Weeknd. It's a small world, after all … )

David Duchovny steps out with much younger gal pal
Is something brewing between David Duchovny, 57, and a 24-year-old female friend? That's what the National Enquirer is asking after David stepped out multiple times with a woman the tabloid identified as Monique Pendleberry. Monique reportedly once worked at David's go-to Malibu juice bar, SunLife Organics, which is owned by a friend of the actor's. The Enquirer (via the Daily Mail) quotes Monique's uncle Dirk Drew as saying his niece met David the juice bar and they have since traveled "together to New York, Canada and Malibu," though he added, "they're not dating, they're just friends." A spy also reported the pair recently visited the Vancouver area, where they spent time together "alone" at a restaurant/bar. David, who returns to "The X Files" in January, finalized his divorce from Tea Leoni in 2014 after at least one post-split reconciliation following his treatment for sex addiction.

Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus aren't moving in together just yet
When Lindsay Shookus was spotted house-hunting with her boyfriend Ben Affleck in Los Angeles this week, early buzz suggested they could be planning to move in together. According to TMZ's sources, the two are getting increasingly serious, but Lindsay was merely accompanying Ben as he checked out multiple homes on the city's west side. (One source did note they're not planning to share a home "yet.") Ben reportedly wants to continue living near the kids he shares with Jennifer Garner, although a recent report that his inner circle is urging him to go back to a longer inpatient treatment program for alcohol dependency could affect his relocation plans. Lindsay, a producer for "Saturday Night Live," has lived in New York City for years. Ben has been visiting her there regularly since they started dating.
Lionel Richie wants to trademark 'Here Comes Da Judge'
Lionel Richie seems to have a creative plan for keeping up with Katy Perry's rumored $25 million "American Idol" salary: merch!

According to the website, Lionel is asking for permission to trademark both "Here Comes Da Judge" and "Here Comes Da Judge Lionel Richie." (Our apologies if your brain, like ours, is now permanently seared with the image of a thong that reads "Here Comes Da Judge Lionel Richie.")
Kourtney Kardashian got her sisters' 'stamp of approval' on new collection
Yowzah. A stunning Kourtney Kardashian turned plenty of heads when she launched her new collection, PrettyLittleThing by Kourtney Kardashian at Poppy in Los Angeles on Wednesday, Oct. 25. Decked out in a skin-tight, super short LBD, the 38-year-old said her siblings weighed in on the finished product as she was developing it. "I see my sisters almost every single day, so while I was designing the collection, if I was going over fabric swatches and they were sitting next to me, I would ask their opinion, like confirming, 'This is really a good dress, right?' to just kind of get their stamp of approval," Kourtney said, according to People. The design process wasn't the first time Kourtney found herself creating new looks for others, either. "I used to sew my friends clothes on the weekend if we were going out and they wanted something, just for fun," she said. "My love of clothes since I was so young — playing in my mom's closet and even my passion for interior design — has helped with this."
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's surrogate is due sooner than expected
This family of four is expected to be a family of five — with a new address — before the end of the year. An insider tells Us Weekly Kim Kardashian's surrogate is due to deliver their second daughter "before Christmas," and that Kim, Kanye West, North and Saint will be moving into their new, $20 million home home in the Hidden Hills section of Los Angeles "very soon." Kim and Kanye have been renovating the house for the past three years, redoing the entire bottom floor and fixing up a vineyard the property came with so they can start making wine at home. "The home is done in terms of the renovation but it's finishing up the smaller things," a source told Us in August. "They don't want to move in with any construction still happening." Kim and Kanye decided to use a surrogate because of medical issues that prevent Kim from safely carrying another child to term.

Anna Wintour reveals Met Gala persona non grata No. 1
Does this mean self-professed Met Gala hater Gwyneth Paltrow gets to stay on the invite list? Anna Wintour appeared on the Wednesday, Oct. 25, edition of "The Late Late Show" and one of the juiciest questions James Corden asked her was which guest of Met Galas past will Anna never again include? The question arrived during a round of "Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts," which, as E! News reminds us, requires guests to eat something nasty if they choose not to answer any given question. Anna opted to skip the pickled pig's feet before her and instead shared her top pick for persona non grata at the annual bash. "Donald Trump," she declared of the president, who has attended the event multiple times over the years. James also inquired about a rumor that Anna once hooked up with Bob Marley — by asking about the reggae legend's boudoir skills. "Fake news! I've never actually met Bob Marley," she assured James. "Had you met him, would you have slept with him?" he asked. Said Anna: "Absolutely."
Harvey Weinstein could be targeted in a second Ronan Farrow expose
In the wake of his game-changing expose on Harvey Weinstein's allegedly rampant sexual misconduct, Ronan Farrow is said to be hard at work reporting a follow-up story that sources tell the New York Post could focus on how the Weinstein Company's culture made it possible for the producer to get away with assaulting and harassing women in the industry for decades. "[Ronan] is hot right now and he wants to capitalize on the momentum of the first article. He seems impatient to get another piece out ASAP," an insider tells the paper. "He's speaking to former Weinstein employees and telling them he's on 'a tight deadline.'" The New Yorker, which published the initial story, declined to comment. According to TMZ, Harvey is expected to remain in treatment for his alleged behavior in Arizona for another month.
Corey Feldman launches campaign to fund documentary about pedophilia in Hollywood
Women aren't the only ones speaking out about sexual impropriety in Hollywood this month. Corey Feldman recently launched a crowdfunding campaign with the goal of raising $10 million to make a movie what he describes in the campaign video as "a pedophile ring that I have been aware of since I was a child." He plans to name names, he says, including one "still very powerful" member of the Hollywood elite. He also says his story "connects pedophilia to one of the major studios." Last year, Corey told The Hollywood Reporter he and Corey Haim were molested repeatedly as children. He made the same allegations in 2013 to Barbara Walters but pointed out the statute of limitations in California made it impossible to prosecute the people involved, whom he said passed the young actors "back and forth" when they were young. Explaining why he needs $10 million to protect himself, legally and physically, from those he says are involved in the ring, Corey acknowledges in his video that his mission is not a safe one. "As most victims have, I've been made to feel awkward, misunderstood, and I've been degraded at great levels," he says, "…all because they fear what I know is the truth," Feldman says. "And I'm not alone."
