Danielle Staub's wedding will be filmed for 'Housewives'

"The Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Danielle Staub will say "I do" with the world watching.

A source told Page Six on April 18 that Danielle's upcoming Bahamian wedding with Marty Caffrey will be filmed by a "Housewives" crew.

"They're getting married May 5 on Bimini Island," a source said said. "Bravo cameras will film it."

Danielle's daughters Christine and Jillian are expected to serve as bridesmaids for the nuptials. Radar Online claims that fellow "Housewives" star Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorfa and Margaret Josephs will all be on hand for the wedding, too.

Page Six said the couple initially planned to get married later in the summer, but a source noted Danielle may have moved it up "so she could demand a bigger paycheck next season."

Danielle knows all about putting her personal life on the small screen — she allowed camera crews to film her and Marty's engagement last year. According to Celebitchy, this is Danielle's 20th engagement.

Danielle was a main character on the first two seasons of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" before quitting the show. She returned in season 8 in a "friend" capacity.

A source told Radar, "Danielle wants to be a fulltime housewife so badly, and she's letting Bravo film the wedding, but this still won't get her back on equal footing with the rest of the ladies."

Danielle and Marty began dating in Spring 2016.

Mr. Big has his woman's back!

Amid the fanfare about the "Sex and the City" sequel "And Just Like That…," Chris Noth is weighing in on the absence of Kim Cattrall, who was one of the main characters on the long-running HBO franchise, but isn't participating in the new series. 

"I have to tell you, I have absolutely no idea what her thinking is, or her emotions. I do know that I'm very close with [Sarah Jessica Parker] and [Kim's] descriptions of her don't even come close," Chris told The Guardian. "I liked her, I thought she was marvelous in the show and some people move on for their own reasons. I don't know what hers were."

Kim and SJP have been at odds for years, but the feud seemed to ascend to a new level of vitriol after Sarah publicly offered condolences to Kim on social media when her brother passed away in 2018.

"I don't need your love or support at this tragic time @sarahjessicaparker," Kim wrote. "Let me make this VERY clear. (If I haven't already) You are not my family. You are not my friend. So I'm writing to tell you one last time to stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your 'nice girl' persona."

Chris bristles at the way the feud has played out. 

"I just wish that whole thing had never happened because it was sad and uncomfortable," he said. "I just don't like to see anyone talking down about SJ because she's a target and people can be nasty. I feel very protective of her and I was not happy about that. That's all I'll say about that."

Good deed

Pink helps dying fan complete bucket list with Zoom call

Pink has made a terminally ill fan's dream come true. 

Philadelphia native Diane Berberian, who has bone cancer and is in hospice care, had made it known that her dying wishes was to have a conversation with her hero, Pink. Through the power of social media, the "So What" singer heard of Diane's story and wanted to help her complete her bucket list.

Last month, Pink dialed up Diane and had a 30-minute Zoom conversation, some of which Diane posted to social media. 

"THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO TOOK THE TIME TO TRY AND MAKE CONNECTIONS… OUR DREAM CAME TRUE!!!!!" Diane captioned the video. "Pink sang 'We Are the Champions.' Will try to share later." 

During the video, Diane shared her admiration for Pink, telling the singer that her music and fierce mentality is inspirational. 

"You've made my day," Diane, a former marathon runner said. "I don't even know what's on my bucket list now, because you were so far at the top. All the other things started to happen so it's kinda like, 'Okay, I'll think of somethin' else!'" 

Pink replied, "You have a kind of bravery that I don't understand. You're bringing comfort to other people while you're walking through this." 

Diane also said she wakes up to Pink's music every day.  

"Most of my days start with the song of the day and it's a Pink song usually," she shared. "When I race, it's always a Pink song." 

Funnily enough, it was Diane who gave Pink advice at the end of the conversation. 

"Don't give up," she said, "don't stop doing what you're doing!" 

Pink replied, "Okay, I won't."

Michael Sheen to use all future career earnings to help homelessness, other social causes

Michael Sheen has dubbed himself a "not-for-profit actor," as he plans to dump all of his future earnings into social causes, including homelessness.

Proving his commitment, the "Frost/Nixon" actor reveals he even quietly sold two of his homes in 2019 to help fund the Homeless World Cup, which uses soccer to inspire the homeless to change their lives, according to the website. 

"I had committed to helping to organize [the Homeless World Cup] and then suddenly, with not long to go, there was no money," he told the Big Issue for their Letter to My Younger Self. "I had to make a decision – I could walk away from it, and it wouldn't happen. And all those people from all around the world who were banking on coming to have this extraordinary experience, maybe a life-changing experience, wouldn't have it. I thought, I'm not going to let that happen."

The Homeless World Cup's website cites that 94 percent of players claim the tournament positively impacted their lives.

With this in mind, Michael couldn't let the lack of funding end the organization.

"I put all my money into keeping it going," he said. "I had a house in America and a house here and I put those up and just did whatever it took."

At the time, the "Good Omens" star had no idea how that would financially affect him personally.

"It was scary and incredibly stressful. And I'll be paying for it for a long time," he said. "But when I came out the other side I realized I could do this kind of thing and, if I can keep earning money it's not going to ruin me. There was something quite liberating about going, alright, I'll put large amounts of money into this or that, because I'll be able to earn it back again. I've essentially turned myself into a social enterprise, a not-for-profit actor."

Another eye-opening moment for Michael came after filming 2011's "The Passion" in Port Talbot, a small town in Wales, United Kingdom, which happens to be his hometown.

"That project involved the entire town and it was a big awakening for me. I got to know people and organizations within my hometown that I didn't know existed. Little groups who were trying to help young carers, who had just enough funding to make a tiny difference to a kid's life by putting on one night a week where they could get out and go bowling or watch a film and just be a kid," he said. "I would come back to visit three or four months later, and find out that funding had gone and that organization didn't exist any more. That stuff doesn't make the news but it makes a massive difference to kids' lives."

He continued, "I realized the difference between that child's life being a little bit better or not was ultimately a small amount of funding. And I wanted to help those people. I didn't just want to be a patron or a supportive voice, I wanted to actually do more than that. That's when I thought, I need to go back and live in Wales again."

Michael has a reported net worth of $16 million.

"I've realized in the last few years that I want to be one of those people who help other people the way so many people helped me. I don't want to just be someone who enjoys the fruits of what other people have done and then pull the drawbridge up and go, well I'm alright Jack, I've had a nice time," he said. "I'm at the stage of my life and career where I have a window of opportunity that will probably never be this good again. I'm able to get people in a room, I can open doors. I don't want to look back and think, I could have done something with that platform. I could have done something with that money."

Court doc reveal...

Tristan Thompson allegedly urged mistress to get abortion

Tristan Thompson wanted a woman he allegedly got pregnant to have an abortion, court documents claim. 

On Dec. 3, DailyMail.com reported that a personal trainer named Maralee Nichols is expecting a child with the NBA player. The child is due on Dec. 3.

As part of a paternity lawsuit against the Sacramento Kings player, Maralee's lawyer filed a legal request to submit text messages purportedly sent between her and Tristan. Those messages reveal that Tristan allegedly urged Maralee to get an abortion. TMZ reported that Tristan also offered her $75,000 to stay quiet about the pregnancy and child.

Court docs obtained by Page Six read, "It is also apparent from the context and substance of these communications that they are from Tristan to Maralee, which reflects that Tristan is addressing the parties' relationship, and even with respect to her pregnancy insisting that she get an abortion and threatening that she will get next to nothing with lesser support requirements in Texas."

Maralee, who moved from Houston to Los Angeles, is suing for child support. An alleged text message from Tristan, posted to TMZ, shows him telling Maralee he "won't be involved" in the child's life.

The lawsuit reveals that Maralee and Tristan had sex on his 30th birthday in March, when he and Khloe Kardashian were still dating. Those same documents included a declaration from Tristan in which he admitted to having sex with Maralee several times at a hotel after the pair attended a party together.

He maintained the hookup was a one-time thing, but she says the relationship lasted months. 

Page Six noted that he filed a request in July for her to take a paternity test. It's not believed that she has, but Tristan said he will pay child support if the baby is his.

This would be Tristan's third child, as he shares 4-year-old son Prince Thompson with ex Jordan Craig and 3-year-old daughter True with Khloe. 

Mea culpa

50 Cent apologizes after criticizing Madonna's Instagram pics

50 Cent is issuing a mea culpa to Madonna after seemingly mocking one of her Instagram posts. 

AFF-USA/Shutterstock

Last week, Madge posted a series of provocative images, pictures that she claimed Instagram took down. 50 Cent saw the snaps and compared Madonna to the Wicked Witch of the East under a fallen house in "The Wizard of Oz."

Madonna didn't take too kindly to 50's words and ripped the rapper. 

"Here is 50 Cent pretending to be my friend. Now you have decided to talk smack about me!" she wrote alongside a red carpet picture with 50. "I guess your new career is getting attention by trying to humiliate others on social media. The least elevated choice you could make as an artist and an adult."

She added, "You are just jealous you won't look as good as me or have as much fun when you are my age."

Upon seeing this, 50 took to Twitter to apologize. 

"I must have hurt Madonna feelings, she went and dug up a old MTV photo from 03," he wrote. "Ok Im sorry i did not intend to hurt your feelings. I don't benefit from this in anyway i said what i thought when i saw the picture because of where i had seen it before i hope you accept my apology."

Madonna has not responded. 

Money matters

George Clooney once turned down $35 million for one day of work

George Clooney once turned down a life-changing amount of money for one day's work because the paycheck would come from a "questionable" country. 

The actor, 60, didn't say what country that was, but implied that his wife, Amal, a human rights attorney, dissuaded him from taking the job.

"I was offered $35 million for one day's work for an airline commercial, but I talked to Amal about it and we decided it's not worth it," he told The Guardian. "It was [associated with] a country that, although it's an ally, is questionable at times, and so I thought, 'Well, if it takes a minute's sleep away from me, it's not worth it.'"

George is reportedly worth $500 million, so he's certainly in a position to back away from a massive payday. Also, the two-time Oscar winner is said to rake in more than $30 million for his role as spokesman for Nespresso.

Proving that money isn't really a concern for George anymore, he further added that he's not acting as much as he used to because he wants to spend more time with his wife and children. Plus, he's very particular about his projects.

"In general, there just aren't that many great parts – and, look, I don't have to act. My wife and I had this conversation when I turned 60 this summer. I said, 'I can still bounce around pretty good, and we both love what we do. But we gotta make sure we don't book ourselves silly,'" he said. "So, part of it is just us making sure we live our lives."

Sober living

Demi Lovato ditches controversial 'California sober' lifestyle

Demi Lovato's lifestyle is changing.

The singer, who uses pronouns they/them, announced that they are no longer "California Sober." Instead, they are now legitimately sober.

On Dec. 2, the "Sorry Not Sorry" singer posted a message on Instagram, saying, "I no longer support my 'California sober' ways. Sober sober is the only way to be."

"California sober" was a lifestyle that allowed for alcohol and marijuana use in moderation. Why Demi decided to change their ways isn't known. 

For a while, Demi often praised the "California sober" lifestyle, and wasn't shy about their marijuana use. They even released a song called "California Sober."

The lifestyle is not without its detractors or people who just roll their eyes at the gray area of sobriety. 

Back in July, "Vanderpump Rules" alum Lala Kent, who's been sober since 2018, called the stance "super offensive."

"You know, there are people out there who work their a** off to never take themselves out of reality and to never place themselves in an altered state," she said on the Behind The Velvet Rope podcast. "You know, they don't even, when they have a cold, take DayQuil or NyQuil. So to say that you're, like, 'California sober' or this type of sober is extremely offensive, I think."

Demi's battle with substance abuse is well documented. In 2018, they survived a near-death overdose and went to rehab. 

In a March 2021, chat with CBS News, Demi said they "best identified" with "California sober." 

"I really don't feel comfortable explaining the parameters of my recovery to people, because I don't want anyone to look at my parameters of safety and think that's what works for them, because it might not," they said. "I am cautious to say that, just like I feel the complete abstinent method isn't a one-size-fits-all solution for everybody, I don't think that this journey of moderation is a one-size-fits-all solution for everybody."

Ink sisters

Dakota Johnson gave Olivia Coleman a tattoo with at-home kit

Olivia Colman has a permanent reminder of her "The Lost Daughter" co-star Dakota Johnson.

During a chat with Town & Country, Dakota spoke of the film's cast celebrating after a New York Film Festival screening in October. After a late night of revelry — "It was a lot of Talking Heads, the Cranberries," Dakota says — the cast went back to their hotel. 

It was then that Dakota pulled out a stick-and-poke tattoo kit and went to work on Olivia, giving the Oscar winner her first tattoo.

"Maybe it was me being completely seduced by this gorgeous person and wanting her to think I was cool," Olivia says. "Or maybe it was my midlife crisis."

Dakota seems to have a somewhat different take, believing it had more to do with a post-vaccine mentality.

"The thing is, people are not behaving normally. If you go to a party, you… rage," she said, alluding to the fact that people were quarantined for so long due to the pandemic.

Unlike Olivia, Dakota is no stranger to getting inked. Earlier this year she told James Corden she practiced stick-and-poke tattooing on herself, adding that she's a "big fan" of permanent ink.

"I'm not a tattoo fiend. I mean, I have like 11 or 12. I don't know," she said. 

Among Dakota's tattoos is a dying sunflower to represent climate change, the word "tender" on her arm and an infinity design, which she got with boyfriend Chris Martin.

The music icon made the announcement on Twitter on Dec. 1, but he didn't go into specifics.

The 74-year-old said he wanted to give "some clarity with some specificity to what's going on with [his] physicality."

"Last Saturday, I had an incident where I asked my wife to take me to the hospital because I had this thing happening in my chest. So when we went there we found out we needed to take care of it," he said in a video. "I'm going to be taking time out for a little bit to make sure I replenish and I rest and I catch up with my health, so when I play for you I play the way I'm used to and I give you 150 percent. I wouldn't show up unless I can do that."

The Twitter announcement dubbed the medical situation as an "unscheduled heart procedure."

The "Smooth" hitmaker was set for a series of concerts in Las Vegas as part of his residency show at House of Blues. He will return to the residency in 2022.
