Silent no more. Megan Fox plans to expose men's "secrets" and "sins" in her upcoming book of poems. She's set to release "Pretty Boys Are Poisonous," which features more than 70 poems written by the actress, in November. "These poems were written in an attempt to excise the illness that had taken root in me because of my silence," she announced on Instagram. "I've spent my entire life keeping the secrets of men, my body aches from carrying the weight of their sins." The cover of the poem book features a mouth with a pierced lip biting a snake. "My freedom lives in these pages and I hope that my words can inspire others to take back their happiness and their identity by using their voice to illuminate what's been buried, but not forgotten, in the darkness," the "Transformer" actress added. She did not say specify exactly whose "secrets" she plans to expose or whether she'll name names.

Amy Robach and T. J. Holmes are thinking about forever nearly a year after they were fired from "Good Morning America" over a consensual workplace romance. "They're in a good place," a source told Us Weekly. "They're moving on from all the negative around the affair and looking toward the future together." The couple has continued to lean on each other in the scandal's wake. Amy and T.J. — who both divorced their previous spouses in the months since their romance went public — "are very happy and laying low," the source said, adding that "now the plan is they do want to move in together and get engaged."
While their personal lives are going well, they are hoping to return to TV soon. "They are still getting paid severance by ABC," a source explained. "So, they're in no rush to get another show. But they're still pitching shows and would like to work together."
Country singer Austin Burke and his pregnant wife, Lexy Burke, are safe after their Nashville, Tennessee, home was inexplicably targeted by a gunman. The up-and-coming singer detailed the scary experience on Instagram on Aug. 7, saying the "entire house rattled" when shots rang out. "Initially, I thought Lexy had fallen and she thought the same about me," he wrote. "Once we realized that we were both physically okay, we looked at our cameras and heard someone load, cock and shoot at our house." Police soon arrived and noticed a bullet hole in the roof line of the home, which was particularly frightening because Lexy, who's somewhat famous on TIkTok, was upstairs and near the roof line at the time of the shooting. TMZ published footage from the couple's video doorbell. Although the gunfire can be heard, the video does not show the shooter. "I wouldn't wish this kind of uneasiness on anyone," the "Crazy, Crazy" singer wrote. Lexy, who gathered a large social media following in 2020 for being a "serial tipper" at restaurants, said they are "still trying to understand what happened."
Chris Noth's life and career imploded a year and a half ago when multiple women accused him of rape and sexual assault. Although he continues to maintain his innocence, he is now fessing up to at least some bad behavior: He cheated on his wife. "I strayed on my wife, and it's devastating to her and not a very pretty picture. What it isn't is a crime," he told USA Today. (The "Sex and the City" alum previously called the assault allegations "categorically false.") He went on to explain why he strayed from the marriage: "You're not hurting anybody. No one's going to know about this, and sex is just enjoyable. Suddenly, a lot of people want to have sex with you. It's like, 'Well, I'm not going to get this chance again,'" he reasoned.
Chris lost several acting and sponsorship gigs and was "iced out" by friends after the allegations against him first made headlines. He wasn't able to defend himself, he said, so he stayed mostly quiet on the matter: "There's no criminal court. There's no criminal trial," he said. "There's nothing for me to get on the stand about and get my story out, get witnesses. And there's even more absurd add-ons that are completely ridiculous, that have absolutely no basis in fact."
Now that the drama has died down, he's attempting a comeback: "I'm not going to lay down and just say it's over. It's a salacious story, but it's just not a true one. And I can't just say 'Well, OK, that's it for me' because of that," he said.
After she was criticized for her weight as a teen, Raven-Symone decided to take matters into her own hands: The "That's So Raven" actress had liposuction and two breast reduction surgeries before she turned 18. "My dad suggested strongly that I should get my breasts reduced," she revealed on a recent episode of her podcast, "The Best Podcast Ever with Raven and Miranda" Recalled the former child star, "He was like, 'So you don't feel bad, is there anything that you want?' I was like, 'Yeah, if I get lipo, will people stop calling me fat?' So I got a twofer. It was just a mess, just being that young and ugh, the pain of it all."
Things didn't go smoothly: Raven had a seizure after the first procedure. She then had "to go back" for a second breast reduction surgery because her breasts were "still too big" after she "gained weight." All these years later, Raven, who's now 37, said she doesn't "regret" the procedures because she fears how large her breasts would be if she hadn't gone under the knife.
Russell Brand is reflecting on his "chaotic" life during his yearlong marriage to Katy Perry. "Aside from my, like, sort of feelings of affection for Katy, it's a time that I remember as being a little bit chaotic and a bit, for me, I'll speak for myself, a little disconnected," the comedian said during his appearance on "Running Wild With Bear Grylls: The Challenge." At the time, Russell's career was booming after he landed major roles in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" and "Get Him to the Greek." "Some aspects of it were, like, amazing," he said. "She's an amazing person, and it was kind of incredible to live for a moment in that 'eye of the cyclone' type aspect of fame." Russell and Katy married in October 2010 and split in late 2011.
