Yep, it turns out Zachary is still married to Mia Quittman, the mother of his two kids, and while he's said they are separated, that's not the same information Mia's giving to the press. "We're not even legally separated," Mia tells Life&Style, adding that Paula and Zachary's claim that they got together after he and his wife had called it quits is untrue. "Everything that he, that they, are saying is false," she says, "[We] were not separated. His stuff is still in my house!"

Kylie Jenner reveals how she chose the name Stormi
After months of uber-privacy around her pregnancy and the birth of her daughter, Stormi, Kylie Jenner is starting to let fans peek back in at her world. As she tells her sister, Kim Kardashian West, in the new issue of ES magazine, that world is pretty different now that she's a mother. Asked how she's persevering with the challenging early days motherhood, Kylie tells Kim she's mostly focused on being totally in love with her little girl. "I feel like it's just been so amazing, and so much fun," she says (via E! News). "I'm learning so much more about myself and life, and it's been such a great experience. Of course there's hard times and stuff … even in the beginning, just not sleeping, the nights, like, baby blues … and all the ups and downs. And also even when I'm here it was so hard to leave this morning. I'm like, 'I'll be right back, I'm so sorry, I have to leave!' and she doesn't even know what's going on. I think about her all the time, anywhere I am. I would rather be with her or wish she can come everywhere. I can't wait till she can come everywhere with me, because right when she's old enough I'll bring her everywhere." Kylie also reveals how she and Travis Scott decided to name their firstborn Stormi — kind of. "I really don't know how we thought of Storm. Her dad insisted it was him, but I feel like it was me. And that kind of just stuck with us," Kylie says. "And then I didn't really like just Storm — I didn't feel like that was her name. So then it became Stormi. And it just stuck. I feel like there were a lot of other names that I might have even liked better to be honest, but I feel like Stormi picked her own name, like it was just her name." Finally, Kim asks her sib to describe the "kind of world" she would ideally like "Stormi to grow up in." Says Kylie: "She's going to have her own challenges. I just hope that she's strong and independent and confident."

Is Matt Lauer and Annette Roque's divorce announcement being stalled by money negotiations?
Split rumors hit Matt Lauer and his wife Annette Roque almost immediately in the wake of numerous allegations of sexual misconduct and the loss of his job at "Today." That was November, though, and there still has been no divorce announcement. According to InTouch, that's because the two are still trying to agree on how to split up their shared assets.

Custody of their two kids has reportedly not been determined yet and Matt is said to be worried about those negotiations as well.
