Heather Locklear's family is reportedly supporting her engagement
After People confirmed Heather Locklear's engagement to her high school sweetheart, Chris Heisser, last week, the "Melrose Place" alum stepped out with some unmistakable new sparkle on her left ring finger on Saturday, June 20, and a mask with the words, "I'm smiling," on her face. According to ET, Heather's relatives were initially concerned about the pair's long-running, on-off relationship starting up again, but have since chosen to support her. "Heather's family went through a period where they were concerned about Heather and Chris' relationship," says a source. "When times were difficult they fought endlessly, but Chris has been Heather's rock throughout her recovery." The actress reportedly checked herself into a treatment center last August and remains sober. Says the source: "Her family is supportive of their recent engagement. They see how in love they are. Heather and Chris want to have an intimate wedding. They are in no rush but when it does happen they want their families and those closest to them to share their special day." A "close family friend" echoed similar sentiments about the family's support to People, saying Heather and Chris are "really happy together."

Pink giggles at how many FOX News 'reporters are mad at me' after she trolled Trump over his rally
Donald Trump staged his controversial rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, over the weekend, amid concerns it would be the next COVID-19 "super-spreader" event. Meanwhile, Pink, who contracted the virus along with her son this spring and has spoken out against the president repeatedly, watched with relief as what CNN called a "trickle" of Trump supporters failed to fill the 19,000-capacity BOK Center for the rally. "I think In sold that same place out in five minutes #donkeyshow," Pink tweeted, sharing a CNN clip. Multiple users confirmed that she had done just that and retweeted the post. Others were less accepting of her humor, not that it stopped her. "Here's my theory; don't hurt the people that love you," she wrote in another tweet. "I would never ask people to come to an arena right now. No good person would." Finally, as critics lashed out at Pink for bringing attention to the lower-than-expected attendance rate, the singer alerted fans she had a whole new group of users tweeting at her. "You guys there's so many fox news reporters that are mad at me right now it makes me giggle," she wrote. "For some reason trump supporters only have 3 arguments… 1. Shut up. 2. You're a man 3. You're irrelevant. Yet here they are on my page! Giggles all day thanks." On Monday, the Washington Post reported at least 118,000 people have died from COVID-19 in the U.S., which has currently reported the most cases of and deaths from the new coronavirus of any country in the world.

Michael Keaton in talks to reprise his 'Batman' role
He's Batman. At least he could be again soon. The Wrap reports Michael Keaton, who shook things up in 1989 with his low-key humorous portrayal of Bruce Wayne and his alter ego in Tim Burton's "Batman," is "in talks" to reprise his role for "The Flash." The outlet warns that negotiations are "in the very early stages" and "it is far from a sure thing," however. "The Flash" will reportedly tackle the DC Comics concept of "the multiverse." Keaton, 68, also starred in "Batman Returns" (1992). He ditched the role when Joel Schumacher took over for Burton on the third installment of the series. Schumaker, also known for his work "The Lost Boys" and "St. Elmo's Fire," died Monday at age 80.

Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper virtually introduce their sons on 'WWHL'
Father's Day 2020 was special for Anderson Cooper, who celebrated his first version of the holiday as a dad himself on Sunday. It took on another level of meaning, though, thanks to the CNN star's best pal Andy Cohen. Cohen invited both Cooper and his infant son Wyatt onto "Watch What Happens Live" over the weekend so Wyatt could virtually meet Cohen's son, 1-year-old Benjamin, for the first time. "I thought it would be fun if they met right now," Cohen said, according to CNN. Sporting the world's go-to longish-hair quarantine look, Andy pointed to Wyatt and said, "Look, that's going to be your good buddy Wyatt." He added: "We're going to travel together. And if you like him half as much as I like his daddy, you're going to be great friends." Both dads welcomed their sons via surrogate.
Khloe Kardashian shares a special Father's Day message to Caitlyn Jenner after rift rumors
Khloe Kardashian seems to be moving past any residual negative feelings about Caitlyn Jenner. On Father's Day, the "KUWTK" star shared a series of old pics featuring Caitlyn and members of the family including Khloe's father Robert Jenner on her Instagram Story, according to ET. She also included a "Happy Father's Day @CaitlynJenner" and what looked like a relatively recent selfie of her and Caitlyn, who said in November the two hadn't spoken in "five or six years." Khloe's rift with Caitlyn appeared to begin around the time of her transition from male to female, when she was working on a book about the family that included less than positive details about her marriage to Khloe's mom, Kris Jenner. TMZ later reported it had not been that long and that they were actually on much better terms.
Paris Jackson reflects on the 'pressure' of being MJ's daughter, especially as a musician
On June 30, Paris Jackson debuts her first Facebook Watch series, "Unfiltered: Paris Jackson and Gabriel Glenn." While its focus is mostly on the 22-year-old's musical relationship with her boyfriend in the indie-folk duo The Soundflowers, Paris also opens up about her father, Michael Jackson, in the show, which released its first trailer on Monday. Published on TooFab, the clip features old footage of a young Paris telling her King of Pop dad that she wants to "dance and sing" like him when she grows up. But that same attention that followed the "Thriller" star and his children because of his music career created problems for Paris. "You see a kid grow up in the public eye, you forget that I am a human," she says over more footage. "I was against letting the world in because it wasn't a choice. I wasn't ready then. I feel like I'm ready now." She also admits she's felt "pressure to follow in my dad's footsteps," while being "compared to him and scrutinized." As for working with Gabe, she says the music came quickly for the couple. "I feel like we're the same level of damaged. Gabe understands the pain I've gone through in my life and he's helped me realize this is what I was born to do," she says. The pair's new EP is due out Tuesday.
One of the more moving posts about Father's Day this year came from Destiny's Child alum Kelly Rowland, who opened up about reconnecting with her dad three decades after her parents divorced. "This was the day I met Christopher Lovett, My biological father," the singer shared alongside photos of their October 2018 meeting (via E! News). "This was honestly one of the most pivotal moments in my life! After 30 years of not seeing him, not speaking to him…what would THAT mean, for me, my family, my psyche?" She explained that she'd lovated him and arranged their get-together, but she was "petrified" as she went to see him. "I had a full on anxiety attack, in that moment I felt like the abandoned 8yr old," she admitted. Though she felt plagued with questions about whether he loved her and why he never came to find her, Rowland said she was speechless when she saw him. As she tried to listen to him, still nervous about the whole thing, she said she realized, "I already loved him." Rowland added that she's forgiven him — and they've "spoken every day" since then. "I have come to know SO much about myself, my family history, and even where my love of music & voice have come from," she said. "I Love you Daddy, and love being your little girl…even at 39! Lol P.S. we are making up for lost time, and when I tell you, him telling me how smart and beautiful I am….will never get old!" According to E! News, Lovett pushed for the two to reconnect back in 2013.
Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow cop to watching fan made 'Friends' blooper compilations
The much buzzed-about "Friends" reunion has been postponed in accordance with social distancing guidelines to slow the spread of COVID-19. But Jennifer Aniston and Lisa Kudrow still filmed reunion of their own recently, via Variety's "Actors on Actors" discussion series. At one point, Aniston shared how much she loves watching fan made blooper reels from the show online. "This one time I was with Courteney [Cox], and we were trying to find something to reference, an old 'Friends' thing. And then we stumbled on — there's bloopers online, like, 15 minutes of bloopers — and we sat there at the computer like two nerds watching these bloopers laughing at ourselves," she shared, speaking from her home. "I've done it too," Kudrow admitted. For Aniston and Cox, there was as much to love about the bloopers as what actually aired. "We just went down this wormhole of 'I don't even remember that! Who came up with that?'" she said. "Sometimes it was more entertaining than the show itself." No release date has been announced for the HBO Max reunion, but producer Kevin Bright said last month the hope is to shoot in front of a studio audience by Thanksgiving.
Justin Bieber denies sexual assault allegation as 'factually impossible'
On Sunday, Justin Bieber shared a long series of tweets that included receipts and other information he said showed there's no proof to claims he sexually assaulted a woman in 2014. "I don't normally address things as I have dealt with random accusations my entire career but after talking with my wife and team I have decided to speak up on an issue tonight," he posted (via EW). "Rumors are rumors but sexual abuse is something I don't take lightly. I wanted to speak out right away but out of respect to so many victims who deal with these issues daily I wanted to make sure I gathered the facts before I made any statement." The story in question came from a woman calling herself Danielle on Twitter. She posted that after the singer's SXSW show on March 9, 2014, he invited her to join him at the Four Seasons Hotel, where he allegedly assaulted her in a room. "As her story told I did surprise a crowd in Austin at Sxsw where I appeared on stage with my then assistant side stage and sang a few songs. What this person did not know was that I attended that show with my then gf Selena Gomez," Justin's tweets continued. He went on to share an Us Weekly item about his dedication of "My Baby" to Selena, plus emails and receipts he said showed he stayed at an Airbnb with Selena on March 9. "On March 10th, Selena left for work and I stayed at the Westin as the receipts clearly showed with my friends Nick and John before I left town," he wrote. Bieber also responded to his accuser's claim another user had seen him at the Four Seasons Hotel that night, citing a tweet in which the person who spotted him wrote, "I don't know what this is all about and why I'm being tagged, but I was at the Four Seasons RESTAURANT." He said he welcomes "all press to inquire" with hotel management if they should seek independent confirmation. "Every claim of sexual abuse should be taken very seriously and this is why my response was needed," Justin tweeted. "However this story is factually impossible and that is why I will be working with twitter and authorities to take legal action."
Camila Mendes defends 'Riverdale' costars amid sexual misconduct allegations
In the wake of sexual misconduct allegations made against "Riverdale" stars Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse, their co-star Camila Mendes is speaking out in support of the actors, who have both denied wrongdoing. "It's incredibly destructive to falsely accuse people of sexual assault," Camila said in an Instagram Story post this week, according to JustJared. "Whatever point this person was trying to make about how quickly people believe what they read, it was not worth damaging the integrity of the me too movement," she continued. "It's sickening and doesn't prove anything except that there are twisted people in this world who have no concern for the consequences of their harmful actions."
