A truce?

Wait, did Cardi B and Nicki Minaj actually just settle their feud?

Wait, did Cardi B and Nicki Minaj actually just settle their feud?

Cardi B and Nicki Minaj have been talking smack about one another since Cardi threw a red high-heeled shoe at the fellow rapper, claiming she'd criticized Cardi's parenting skills, during a New York Fashion Week party in September.

But now it appears the women have settled their beef — or at least agreed to stop the back-and-forth accusations they've been lobbing at one another for weeks via Nicki's "Queen Radio" Beats 1 show on Apple Music, in interviews and on social media.

Late on Oct. 29 after a day of trash talking one another — Nicki had gone after Cardi on her radio show; Cardi responded in a series of Instagram videos — the women seemingly called a truce.

"Ok you guys, let's focus on positive things only from here on out. We're all so blessed. I know this stuff is entertaining & funny to a lot of people but I won't be discussing this nonsense anymore," Nicki tweeted. "Thank you for the support & encouragement year after year. Love you."

Cardi then posted a photo of Nicki's tweet on Instagram and responded to Nicki directly, writing, "@Nickiminaj alright then! Let's keep it positive and keep it pushing!"

The truce came after Nicki made several allegations on her radio show. She claimed that Cardi's former "Love and Hip Hop" co-star Rah Ali had attacked Cardi at the September party and repeatedly punched her in the head (Cardi was photographed leaving with a huge knot near her eye). "For people who don't know, Rah Ali beat Cardi's a– really bad," Nicki said. "You went home and told people that security hit you. We told Rah not to say anything for legal reasons."

Nicki offered $100,000 to anyone with footage of the alleged beat-down. Nicki also called Cardi's sister, Hennessy Carolina, a liar for claiming Nicki leaked Cardi's phone number.

Cardi, who denied a fight with Rah, responded in a series of expletive-filled videos posted on Instagram. In one, she told Nicki, "You lie so much you can't keep up with your f—in' lies." She challenged Nicki — whom she also insisted she's always shown respect for despite NIcki's claims otherwise — to settle their beef once and for all, calling herself a "street b—-" and suggesting they either talk it out or physically fight. She also threatened to go after Nicki legally. "Since you wanna talk about suing, maybe I should sue you for defamation of character," Cardi said.

"Since you say you tired of talking about it, I'm tired of talking about it too!" Cardi said in yet another video. I'm tired of the f—ing whole incident s—. I'm tired of the interview s—. If you really want to talk about it, you know where to link me… we could always link up… we could settle it however you want to settle it," she continued. "We could talk about it or we could fight it out. I'm with whatever. But I'm sick and tired of that back-and-forth s—. I'm not doing it. I'm in a good space right now. Let me know what's up."

Nicki, it seems, agreed she's sick of talking about their drama too. Let's hope this truce sticks!

On the Market

Erika Jayne is dating again amid legal troubles

Erika Jayne is putting herself on the market again. 

The "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star is dating again: She's been on a "handful" of dates in Los Angeles, TMZ reported on Oct. 25.

The realty TV star isn't using dating apps, though. Instead, she's letting trusted friends set her up on dates with single guys in L.A. So far, she's been out with a few guys in the entertainment industry and a few guys in other fields.

"Erika is seeing if there's a spark with a mix of men," TMZ reports. (The webloid also implies that Erika is only dating guys who live in the L.A. area.)

This is essentially uncharted water for the "Pretty Mess" singer, who last dated in the '90s before marrying Tom Girardi.

Not only has Erika's love life been flipped upside down, but so have her finances. 

In November 2020, Erika filed to divorce Tom. Weeks later, he was accused of embezzling money from the law firm where he worked. (Some of those funds were intended for families of those who died in the 2018 Lion Air Flight 610 crash in Indonesia.) 

The former top-notch lawyer was later sued by his business partners, resulting in a chapter 7 bankruptcy petition. The partners claim Tom used money he owed them for "personal gain" and to fund Erika's lavish lifestyle. Because of this, Erika's finances have been questioned as she allegedly refused to hand over her own bank records. There have also been accusations that the couple's divorce was a sham intended to keep money from those seeking to collect on debts owed by Tom. It's also alleged that Erika received more than $20 million from Tom's law firm.

Last month, Tom appeared to implicate Erika in his legal mess. On Sept. 22, Tom was leaving lunch in Los Angeles when a paparazzi cameraman asked him the burning question: Did Erika know anything? 

"I think she does," Tom stated as two friends tried to squash the impromptu and quick interview.

Erika, though, has maintained her innocence, claiming Tom controlled her finances during their marriage. 

"I gave every paycheck to my husband," she told Andy Cohen during the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" season 11 reunion last week, adding, "I've handed every paycheck I've ever made over."

The New York Times reports that Erika makes about $600,000 a season from "Real Housewives."

Details emerging

Alec Baldwin accidental shooting: Latest details from 'Rust' director

Joel Souza, the director of "Rust," said cast and crew of the in-production Western film had been told that a gun being used by Alec Baldwin did not contain any live rounds, an affidavit reveals.

The New York Times obtained the affidavit, which also implies that necessary precautions weren't taken by on-set firearm safety experts before Alec — who was rehearsing a scene that involved cross drawing and pointing a firearm at the camera — fatally shot cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.

Joel, who was also injured during the Oct. 21 incident, spoke to investigators, indicating that everyone on set believed Alec was holding a "cold gun" — one that doesn't contain a live round — before the accidental shooting. 

In the most detailed account yet of what happened on the New Mexico set that day, Joel told investigators that prop guns were typically checked by the film's armorer, Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, and then checked again by Dave Halls, the assistant director, who would then hand them to the actors. There is almost always a precise sequence when handling guns on film sets, industry experts said, but an unnamed "Rust" producer alleged the handling sequence was eschewed as both Hannah and Dave handed guns to actors.

The affidavit reveals that the assistant director grabbed the revolver from a tray that had been set up by Hannah. Dave then handed the gun to Alec and shouted, "cold gun." After that, Alec started explaining how he was going to draw the gun. As he pulled it out from the holster, the firearm discharged, a cameraman told investigators, adding that the actor was "very careful" with the firearm. Still, tragedy struck.

"Joel stated there should never be live rounds whatsoever, near or around the scene," Santa Fe County Sheriff Detective Joel Cano writes in the affidavit.

Joel said the fatal incident occurred after the cast and crew returned from a lunch break and he was "not sure" if the firearms had been checked for live rounds as they prepared for the scene. Alec was simply rehearsing when Joel heard something that "sounded like a whip and then loud pop." He then looked at Halyna, who grabbed her midsection and stumbled backwards. She told crew members she couldn't feel her legs. (He also noticed he was bleeding from the shoulder.)

Halyna was later pronounced dead at the University of New Mexico Hospital in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The detective outlines in the affidavit that there had been a labor dispute between producers and crew members before the incident. On the day of the incident, Joel had been dealing with delays after roughly six members of the camera crew quit due to late pay and safety conditions, the affidavit says. Joel and producers scrambled and got a new crew together. Joel, though, told the detective that "everyone was getting along" and that there had been "no altercations" to his knowledge.

Because the crew was setting up for the scene and merely rehearsing, Joel said, the fatal incident was not filmed.

On Oct. 24, a candlelight vigil was held in Halyna's honor in Burbank, California.

Bad hair day

Social media reacts to Angelina Jolie's hair extension malfunction

Angelina Jolie's typically-flawless look was marred by a hair extension fail over the weekend, or so said social media.

Twitter users let it all fly on Oct. 25 after seeing images of the actress on the red carpet at the 16th Rome Film Festival. Angie donned a shimmering silver dress, but fans didn't seem to notice, as they couldn't take their eyes off her uneven hair.

Photos showed the "Maleficent" star's real brown hair and her extensions were left unblended and quite noticeable. 

"Who did Ms Jolie this dirty with those hair extensions," one person wrote. 

Another person accused Angelina's stylist of being "drunk."

"How do you let Angelina Jolie walk a red carpet with her hair extensions looking like this, somebody getting fired," another tweeted, as others encouraged the actress to give the stylist their walking papers. 

One person joked that something nefarious was at play, invoking Jennifer Aniston's name.

"Whoever did Angelina's hair extensions must be a friend of Jennifer's," one person commented, referring to the supposed feud the women have, which is tied to their marriages to Brad Pitt.

Another commented hilariously said Angie's hair consumer her daily life.

"Have been thinking about Angelina Jolie's hair extensions all day," they said. 

Just call it another social media blow out.

All the feels

How Joe Giudice really feels about Teresa Giudice's engagement

Joe Giudice seems to be surprised that his ex-wife, Teresa Giudice, is already heading down the aisle again. 

On Oct. 19, the "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star said "yes" after her boyfriend of a year, Luis "Louie" Ruelas, popped the question

"I'm happy for Teresa and Louie, I give them my blessings," Joe told Celebuzz on Friday, just a few days after the engagement. "I think they moved a bit quick into this romance, but I'm glad she found her true love and wish them all the best."

Luis was Teresa's first serious romance since divorcing Joe, her husband of 20 years, who was deported to Italy in October 2019 after serving 41 months in prison for fraud.

Luis proposed to the reality TV star while on a romantic vacation in Greece at the Amanzoe Resort in Porto Heli. The gorgeous proposal included sparklers, candles, roses, a violinist and a fireworks display. 

Former "RHONJ" co-star Dina Manzo and her husband, Dave Cantin, were also there for the big moment.

On Oct. 22, Luis posted several pictures from the evening. He also shared a video of the proposal, which showed him down on one knee in front of an illuminated "Marry Me" sign, all as fireworks lit up the night sky.

"I spent my entire life dreaming of you…everyday without even knowing who you were. From the moment our eyes locked and voices connected on Bay boulevard at the Jersey shore, we began our journey understanding each other's paths and learning to appreciate how we had to go thru everything we did in our lives just to get to this point," he wrote on Instagram. "These have been the most defining moments of my life and I am eternally grateful to share them with you. This is just the beginning of the rest of our lives."

He continued, "You are the LOVE of my life, my best friend, my soulmate. I promise to always love you every second of every day and always be there for you and your 4 beautiful daughters. I devote myself and my purpose in life to our goals and dreams. I am so grateful to walk this life with you not alone but together hand in hand until we are old."

On the prowl?

Scott Disick reportedly flirts with model, 23, after ex's engagement news

As his ex celebrates her engagement and her new "forever," Scott Disick is staying forever young.

The former "Flip It Like Disick" star was spotted out in West Hollywood on Thursday night, and paparazzi photos showed him getting flirtatious with 23-year-old Instagram model Elizabeth Grace Lindley.

According to DailyMail.com, the duo hung out into the early morning hours of Oct. 22, and they "left together in a chauffeured car."

Elizabeth donned a black minidress and matching knee-high boots for the occasion.

Over the years, Scott, 38, has shown that age isn't an issue when it comes to his love life. Since his years-long romance with Kourtney Kardashian ended, Scott has been linked to actress Bella Thorne, 24, and model Bella Banos, 25. He also dated 23-year-old Sofia Richie for nearly three years. His yearlong relationship with 20-year-old Amelia Gray Hamlin ended last month after he sent an ill-advised message to one of Kourtney's former lovers

The evening sighting comes just days after Kourtney, with whom Scott shares three children, got engaged to blink-182 drummer Travis Barker

"Forever," the "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star captioned a photo of the Oct. 17 proposal.

On Oct. 20, Kourtney shared more intimate images from the oceanside engagement.

After the proposal, a report claimed Scott hasn't been handling the news well

"Scott is going crazy" about Kourtney's engagement, a source told Page Six. "He's going to go off the deep end. It's really bad. It's about to get dark."

A source told People magazine that Scott never expected Kourtney and Travis to go the distance.  

"Scott hasn't really wanted to deal with Travis and Kourtney because he didn't feel like he'd have to," the insider explained. "At first, it seemed like it was just a casual relationship to him, nothing serious. So he pretty much put that on mute … thinking that eventually, they'd break up." 

The source claims Scott is "being forced to deal" with the reality that Kourtney wants a future with the drummer, "which is uncomfortable" for Scott. 

"If he's going to co-parent with Kourtney, which he has been, he has to process this and make his peace with it," said the source, adding that Scott is "distancing himself from the family" while taking "time to process this and deal with it on his own, without them."

Book accusations

Jamie Lynn Spears claims parents pushed for abortion during teen pregnancy

Jamie Lynn Spears claims in her upcoming book that her famous older sister wasn't the only one controlled by their parents. 

In "Things I Should Have Said," Jamie insists that her parents, Jamie Spears and Lynn Spears, pushed her to get an abortion in 2007 after she told them she was pregnant at 16 years old. She even says her phone was taken away so that she wouldn't have communication with anyone outside of select family members and her immediate circle.

Her team, which included her parents, wanted to keep her pregnancy hush hush, she said in excerpts of the book, which were obtained by TMZ.

Recalling one night, she said her team "… came to my room trying to convince me that having a baby at this point in my life was a terrible idea … 'It will kill your career. You are just too young. You don't know what you're doing. There are pills you can take. We can help you take care of this problem … I know a doctor.'" Added the singer-actress, "everyone around me just wanted to make this 'issue' disappear."

"Everyone was certain that termination would be the best course of action," she wrote. 

The family was so determined to keep the pregnancy news bottled up that Jamie Lynn wasn't even allowed to tell sister Britney Spears, the "Zoey 101" star claims.

"I needed her more than ever and she wasn't able to help me in my most vulnerable time. … To this day, the hurt of not being able to tell my sister myself still lingers," Jamie Lynn said. 

After welcoming baby Maddie, who's now 13, Jamie Lynn gave exclusive pictures to OK! Magazine. Before the magazine was published, Jamie Lynn and her mom headed to a cabin in Connecticut — where they even spent Thanksgiving — to hide out.

"Momma wore her disappointment like her favorite jacket," Jamie Lynn wrote. 

Engaged

Teresa Giudice and Luis Ruelas are engaged

Teresa Giudice is "altaring" her life. 

The "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star is engaged to Luis "Louie" Ruelas, People magazine reported. The mag also published photos from the beautiful engagement.

Luis, who's been dating the reality TV star for over a year, popped the question while on a romantic vacation in Greece at the Amanzoe Resort in Porto Heli on Oct. 19. The magical proposal included sparklers, candles, roses, a violinist and a fireworks display. Former "RHONJ" co-star Dina Manzo and her husband, Dave Cantin, were also there for the big moment.

"It was absolutely exquisite," a source told People. "The choreographed fireworks display illuminated a 'Marry Me' sign as Louie got down on one knee. Teresa was completely surprised."

While on Cloud 9 that evening, the foursome celebrated until 5 a.m. the next morning.

@teresagiudice/Instagram

The couple always seemed to be on a fast track to marriage, as they exchanged "I love you's" on social media often. In February, they bought a home together, but were supposedly using that as a rental property and investment purchase. Earlier this month, it was reported that they were moving in together into that very home they purchased together. 

Teresa began dating Luis in summer 2020, and sources said they were intentionally moving slowly. This was Teresa's first serious romance since spitting with Joe Giudice, her husband of 20 years, who was deported to Italy after serving 41 months in prison for fraud.

The newly engaged couple have six children between them. Teresa shares daughters Gia, 20, Gabriella, 17, Milania, 15, and Audriana, 12, with Joe, while Ruelas is dad to sons Louie Jr. and Nicholas.

Vacay request

Lori Loughlin, husband ask judge to let them jet off to Mexico

Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli are hoping to say adios to America… for a week. 

The ex-cons are have asked a judge to allow them to travel to San Jose del Cabo next month so they can attend a wedding. Because the couple is on supervised release, they must get permission from a judge in order to leave the country.

According to TMZ, the couple is hoping to go south of the border from Nov. 5 to Nov. 12. 

In arguing why they should be allowed to travel out of the United States, the duo says they've been compliant with the terms of their prison releases, as the "Fuller House" star indicated she's paid her $150,000 fine and noted she's completed her community service. Mossimo, meanwhile, says he's paid his $250,000 fine and is currently doing his community service. 

In May, the couple similarly petitioned a judge to let them go to Mexico for a weeklong family vacation, a request that was approved. Like last time, the couple claimed their probation officers are okay with the trip.

A judge has yet to approve the new request, but it's likely Lori and Mossimo will get the OK.

Lori and Mossismo both served time in prison for their roles in a college admissions scandal — she was released from prison on December 28, 2020, after a two-month sentence; he was released from prison in early April 2021 after spending nearly five months behind bars.

Last month it was announced that Lori would be returning to the air now that her legal trouble is essentially behind her. The actress will reprise her role as Abigail Stanton, from Hallmark's "When Calls the Heart," in the spin-off series "When Hope Calls."

What happened? Chris Noth shocks fans with picture of facial abrasions

Mr. Big is bruised up.

Chris Noth stunned his Instagram followers this week after sharing an image of himself with fairly severe facial abrasions. It appears, though, that it's all makeup for his role in "The Equalizer."

The actor looked like he had a black eye and a cut on his right cheek in the image. 

"Things are getting intense on The Equalizer," he captioned the image, giving no other context.

Fans were quick to believe that the cuts were actually just Hollywood magic and makeup, as they commented with laughter. To no surprise, many invoked the name of Carrie Bradshaw, Chris' love interest in "Sex and the City." 

"My god I was going to say did Carrie throw a Manolo at him?! Lol," one person said. Another added, "Are you sure Carrie didn't do that?!?!"

Chris is set to revive his Mr. Big character in the "Sex and the City" reboot, "And Just Like That…" The 66-year-old actor and Sarah Jessica Parker, who plays Carrie, were spotted filming in Paris recently. 

In August, he also posted a few snaps with SJP, one of which had them in bed together. 

"Just like the old days!," he captioned the Instagram photo.
