Gordon Ramsay and wife welcome 5th child

Gordon Ramsay and his wife have cooked up a fifth child.

On Thursday, the "Hell's Kitchen" chef announced he and Tana Ramsay welcomed a son.

"After 3 baftas and one Emmy… finally we have won an Oscar, please welcome Oscar James Ramsay, who touched down at 12:58 today for some lunch !" Gordon captioned a series of photos of their newborn.

The couple already shares Megan, 21, twins Holly and Jack, 19, and Matilda, 17.

After Gordon's announcement, several fellow chefs and "Hell's Kitchen" alums offered their congratulations.

The Ramsays' first announced that they were expecting a fifth child on New Year's Day.

"We've got another one coming," the famed chef can be heard saying in a video. "Oh my lord!"

Oscar's birth is extra special for the couple, as Tana suffered a miscarriage in 2016.

"Hi guys, Tana and I want to thank you so much for your support over the past couple weeks," Gordon said on his Facebok page at the time. "We had a devastating weekend as Tana sadly miscarried our son at five months," he stated on his page."

Last year, in an interview with the Daily Mail, the restauranteur said his wife almost left him because of his weight, stating that he hit 250 pounds at one point.

"Tana was not impressed with the way I was," he said. "I look at the pictures and think, 'How did Tana stay around?' Because Tana has got better-looking and more gorgeous."

Gordon said that he used to eat poorly because of his job, which required him to often work late.

A vacation with David and Victoria Beckham was also eye-opening.

"I didn't have a figure," he said. "I didn't feel that good."

Finally his wife told him to shape up or she was going to leave him.

"It was painful," he said, adding that it was a "big wake-up call."

Tara Reid adds confusion to her Instagram pitch to Nicole Kidman

Tara Reid seems to have a bit of Instagram amnesia.

Earlier this week, Tara went viral after pitching a job to Nicole Kidman in the comments section of "The Undoing" star's Instagram. Now, the "Sharknado" star seems to have forgotten all about it, even claiming that perhaps someone else with access to her Instagram account left the comment.

"I don't think I did," Tara said when asked about the pitch during an interview with FUBAR Radio's Access All Areas. "Because I think I'm not the only one who controls my Instagram. So, there's a couple of people that do it. Do you know what I mean?"

Recent screen grabs show Tara getting detailed in her social media job offer.  

"You are truly amazing in everything you do," Tara began. "I've b en [sic] a huge fan forever. Hopefully one day we can work together soon."

She added, "I'm producing a movie Masha's Mushroom it starring Vivica Fox, Billy Zane, Beverly Deangelo, myself Tara Reid, Sade and others it truly an amazing script. I would love for you to read it."

When asked if Nicole had responded, Tara said, "I haven't read anything yet on private messages. So, I don't think so. So who knows."

Love lost

Ex Bachelorette jokes about 'ring graveyard' after two failed engagements

Becca Kufrin is putting together quite the jewelry collection… one that she doesn't want.

Following her breakup earlier this year with Garrett Yrigoyen, the former "Bachelorette" star now has two failed engagements.

On Kaitlyn Bristowe's "Off the Vine" podcast this week, Becca joked about her broken engagements.

"Let's be honest, I was engaged two times already — like, I don't want to keep racking up the rings," she said. "As much as I love ["Bachelor" jeweler] Neil Lane, I don't want to have a ring graveyard."

Both of the reality TV star's splits were rather ugly. Becca, 30, first got engaged at the end of "The Bachelor" when Arie Luyendyk Jr. proposed. However, just weeks after his on-camera proposal, Arie had a change of heart and broke up with Becca, which was also on camera. He then began a relationship with "Bachelor" runner-up Lauren, who he's now married to. With Garrett, Becca confirmed the split on the Sept. 1 episode of her "Bachelor Happy Hour" podcast with Rachel Lindsay. Becca and Garrett had well-documented differences in their political beliefs and had opposing viewpoints about the Black Lives Matter protests, all of which sparked break-up rumors. In June, during the height of the protests, she was asked about the status of her and Garrett's relationship after they publicly shared competing stances about BLM. "I don't know," she said.

Asked where she keeps the ring she got from Garrett, who proposed on the finale of her season of "The Bachelorette," Becca said, "It's not even in a lockbox, it's just sitting on my dresser. I don't know what to do with it. I'm never going to wear it again. I don't want to reuse the diamonds for anything, like, for myself — I don't want that juju."

Garrett has since moved on and is now dating yoga instructor Alex Farrar. Becca, meanwhile, is single and recently announced that she was in the process of freezing her eggs. 

Tiger attack

Tiger attacks staffer at Carole Baskin's 'Big Cat Rescue'

A volunteer staffer at Big Cat Animal Rescue in Tampa nearly lost an arm after being attacked by a tiger on Thursday morning.

Early on Dec. 3, medics responded to the Florida sanctuary, which is owned by reality TV star Carole Baskin, after a woman suffered a severe bite to her arm and hand.

While describing the situation to TMZ, Carole and her husband, Howard Baskin, said a longtime volunteer named Candy Couser stuck her hand into the tiger's enclosure in order to open the door to feed it. Just then, the tiger, named Kimba, bit down on Candy's hand and "started thrashing."

Kimba only let go of Candy's arm after other staffers came running to help. During the incident, the woman's arm was nearly torn off. While waiting for medics to arrive, staffers reportedly applied a tourniquet and pressure to the wounds.

After the incident, the Baskins noted that Kimba's enclosure has two guillotine-style tunnel doors. Candy, they say, opened the first and found that the second door was clipped shut.

"This is our universal signal NOT to open a gate without the coordinator coming to assist, but Candy said she just wasn't thinking when she reached in to un clip it," the couple says. "It is against our protocols for anyone to stick any part of their body into a cage with a cat in it."

The incident was described on Big Cat's Instagram, as well.

"Carole reminded everyone that this sort of tragedy can happen in the blink of an eye and that we cannot relax our guard for a second around these dangerous cats," the Instagram caption said.

The couple maintains that Kimba was just acting normally considering food was present. Further, they say Candy was conscious in the ambulance and is expected to survive. She was also supposedly adamant that the tiger remained unharmed.

Kimba will be quarantined for the next 30 days as a precaution.

Carole, of course, rose to fame earlier this year after being prominently featured in Netflix's smash "The Tiger King." She is rather controversial. While many see her as a rescuer of animals, just as many others view her as a villain. Many critics continue to allege that she had a hand in her first husband's disappearance more than 23 years ago. 

This fall, ABC capitalized on Carole's notoriety and cast her in "Dancing With The Stars." She was eliminated from the competition after just two weeks.

'Housewives' star shares pic with girlfriend after coming out

Just hours after publicly coming out, Braunwyn Windham-Burke is giving her social media followers a peek into her new love life.

On her Instagram Story, the "Real Housewives of Orange County" star shared a photo with her girlfriend. Braunwyn didn't comment on the image, but she added a rainbow flag emoji and two heart emojis.

Instagram

People magazine reported that Braunwyn's partner's name is Kris.

In publicly coming out on Dec. 2, Braunwyn, 43, became the first openly gay "Housewives" star.

"I'm finally comfortable enough to say I like women. I'm gay," she revealed during an interview with GLAAD. "I'm a member of the LGBTQ+ community. I'm a lesbian. It has taken me 42 years to say that but I am so proud of where I am right now. I'm so happy where I am. To be able to be comfortable in my own skin after so long is just so nice."

Despite her sexuality and her reveal that she currently has a girlfriend, Braunwyn plans to stay married to Sean Burke, her husband of 20 years and father of their seven children. Braunwyn notes that she and Sean sleep in separate bedrooms, and he has met Kris.

Not long after her reveal, Sean took to social media to publicly support his wife.

"I love you. I'm proud of you. And I support you. Always," he captioned a photo with Braunwyn.

While there is no romance between Braunwyn and Sean, there is love and respect.

"I love Sean. I love him dearly, he is my person, he is my family. But I'm not attracted to men and I never have been," Braunwyn said in her GLAAD interview, adding that her attraction to women "became something that I didn't want to hide anymore and I didn't want to keep secret anymore."

She added, "I want to be able to go out to dinner with whoever I want without judgment."

Outbreak

Half the Beverly Hills 'Housewives' test positive for COVID-19: Report

There's been a severe COVID-19 outbreak among the cast and crew of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills."

According to TMZ, Kyle Richards, Kathy Hilton and Dorit Kemsley have all tested positive for COVID-19. The positive tests come just a week after production was shut down due to a crew member's positive test.

The report claims that none of the three women have "serious symptoms" and all are recovering at home. It's believed that they are nearing the end of their COVID-19 battles.

Sources quickly added that the women contracted the virus from hanging out together and not from filming the hugely popular Bravo show.

"Housewives" filming began filming its newest season five weeks ago. Multiple reports over the past month have indicated that safety protocols such as testing and temperature checks are in place to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

Sexuality reveal

'Housewives' star Braunwyn Windham-Burke comes out as gay

"The Real Housewives of Orange County" star Braunwyn Windham-Burke has come out about her sexuality: She's gay.

The reality TV star made the reveal during an interview with GLAAD on Dec. 2. 

"I'm finally comfortable enough to say I like women. I'm gay," she announced at the beginning of the on-camera interview. "I'm a member of the LGBTQ+ community. I'm a lesbian. It has taken me 42 years to say that but I am so proud of where I am right now. I'm so happy where I am. To be able to be comfortable in my own skin after so long is just so nice."

Braunwyn said she's left some proverbial breadcrumbs over the past year, including a much-discussed make-out scene with Tamra Judge. 

"When we were getting ready for the reunion I was talking to a producer that I trust a lot, his name was James, and he said, 'How do you feel about this? Was it a drunken mistake or is this a part of who you are?' And I said, 'This is who I am,'" she said. "When I went to the reunion last year I kind of started baby-stepping into, 'This is who I am. I like women.' I was testing the waters with my friends, my cast, my family."

Despite her sexuality and her reveal that she currently has a girlfriend, Braunwyn plans to stay married to Sean Burke, her husband of 20 years and father of their seven children. Braunwyn notes that she and Sean sleep in separate bedrooms, and he has met the "Housewives" star's new love interest.

"I love Sean. I love him dearly, he is my person, he is my family. But I'm not attracted to men and I never have been," she said. 

Her attraction to women, she said, "became something that I didn't want to hide anymore and I didn't want to keep secret anymore. I want to be able to go out to dinner with whoever I want without judgment."

Braunwyn further mentioned that her sobriety helped her become her authentic self.

"I know there's a correlation between the two," she said. "I know when you get sober and you start doing the work that goes into that, you start realizing a lot of the reasons you drank had to do with who you were on the inside."

Asked how she feels now that she's publicly come out, Braunwyn said, "I'm still getting used to it."

After her interview, the TV star took to Instagram to thank GLAAD for the support.

"It feels so good to finally be living my truth. I am a lesbian. At 43 years old, I've finally been able to accept this part of myself and I've realized there are no rules about when someone should come out," she wrote. "This is my time."

wild allegations

Firm calls Erika Jayne's divorce a 'sham' to steal from plane crash victims

A Chicago law firm is claiming that Erika Jayne and Tom Girardi's divorce is nothing more than "a sham" with the purpose of embezzling money from the families of victims of a deadly plane crash.

In a class action lawsuit last year, Edelson PC represented the family's of the victims of Lion Air Flight 610, which crashed in 2018 during a flight from Jakarta, Indonesia, to Pangkal Pinang, Indonesia, killing all 189 people aboard. Tom's law firm, Girardi Keese, was also involved in the lawsuit against Boeing, as the fateful plane was a Boeing 737 Max 8.

In early 2020, Boeing quietly reached individual settlements with the families of the crash victims. Now, Edelson claims that Tom has been embezzling money from the settlements to support his and "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star's lifestyle.

The lawsuit, filed in court on Dec. 2 and obtained by the Chicago Sun-Times, claims Tom and his law firm "are on the verge of financial collapse and locked in a downward spiral of mounting debts and dwindling funds."

The sudden divorce, the lawsuit alleges, was done so that Tom, 81, and Erika, 49, can "project a public image of obscene wealth at all times, and at whatever the cost."

"While Erika publicly filed for divorce this month, on information and belief, that 'divorce' is simply a sham attempt to fraudulently protect Tom's and Erika's money from those that seek to collect on debts owed by Tom and his law firm GK," the lawsuit continued.

AKM-GSI

Erika filed for divorce from Tom on Nov. 3, citing irreconcilable differences. The couple had no prenuptial agreement, but she's asked for spousal support.

Edelson alleges that Tom and Erika "route the money to friends and family and satisfy other outstanding debts." The court filing also brings up Erika's comments in multiple interviews in which she acknowledges that she spends $40,000 a month for her look. It also brings up Tom's daily standing reservation at Morton's The Steakhouse in Los Angeles.

Edelson claims it became aware of potential issues after the firm contacted Tom to check on the status of the Boeing settlements being paid to the families. Tom, the firm says, was less than forthcoming.

"We're doing good on this thing, getting things squared away and sh—," Tom allegedly said in a voicemail attached to the court filing. "Don't be mean to me, be nice to me. I'm doing good. It was because of me that we got this by the way. … I'll be in touch, don't worry about everything, we're friends, things are going to work out good."

In another, Tom allegedly said, "We screwed up here a little bit. … We had three different air crashes and they got a little screwed up. I'll get everything worked out by Thursday. I'm so sorry, this never happened before, anyway, everything will be smoothed over on Thursday."

According to Page Six, the lawsuit asks a judge to create a trust to first benefit Lion Air clients before paying money owed to Edelson.

Health battle

Trista Sutter's husband addresses mystery illness

Ryan Sutter is opening up about his five-month health battle with a mystery illness that has left him "paralyzed" with fatigue.

The "Bachelorette" star's wife, Trista Sutter, first brought Ryan's internal war to light earlier in the week, indicating they know he's not battling cancer, but they don't know what he's actually suffering from.

In a series of Instagram posts, Ryan detailed his private fight, explaining that he began working as a firefighter again earlier this year.

"I completed the academy and believed/hoped I would begin to recover and feel better.  It's been five months now and, if anything, I feel worse," he said. "Though I am functional and continue to work my regular fire schedule, I am experiencing a battery of symptoms which include:  fatigue – sometimes almost paralyzing, deep body and muscle aches, fevers, night sweats, full body itching with no rash, headaches, neck and throat swelling, congestion, light headedness, nausea, and just general all around not feeling good."

Ryan has tested negative for COVID-19 several times and he's tested negative for Lupus, so those illnesses have been essentially ruled out. He's also taken several blood tests, but nothing has been conclusive.

"I am not taking any medications, maintain a healthy diet and am doing my best to get rest.  Most days I feel about 70%.  Somedays I feel a bit better and somedays I can barely get out of bed," he said. "I don't believe I have anything contagious as no one else in my family has been sick nor has anyone I have worked with or associated with been sick."

Since coming forward with his unknown illness, Ryan has heard from many others with similar stories. 

"The struggle to find answers in the medical world and support through the insurance industry is frustrating and lacking.  One must truly and persistently advocate for himself/herself if they hope to find answers or, at the very least, rule out possibilities," he said. "I am concerned that we are bearing witness to the effects of our lifestyles and the relative lack of understanding as to how we live on a daily basis influences our health and well being and the health and well being of others?  In the pursuit of answers to my personal situation, I hope I might be of some help to all those suffering in similar ways as I am now acutely sympathetic."

Regardless of the unknown, Ryan is prepared to fight this battle.

"I have a strong support group and the best wife in the world.  Please don't worry about me.  I will be fine.  If you must worry, worry about each other.  Support each other.  Be there for each other," he said. "The outpouring of support I have received has been humbling and therapeutic.  I could not be more grateful.  I can not imagine the healing power that amount of love and caring would have on the world should we all choose to apply it?  Maybe let's find out…"

Tara Reid offered Nicole Kidman a job over Instagram

Shoot your shot, Tara Reid.

Over the weekend, the "American Pie" actress made a pitch to Nicole Kidman in hope of casting "The Undoing" star in an upcoming film. Normally this would't be noteworthy, but what made this particular pitch so unconventional is that it happened in the comments section of Nicole's Instagram.

The "Official Sean Penn Instagram" account (not the Sean Penn) captured a screen shot of Tara's grammatically incorrect comment, which came after Nicole posted a photo overlooking New York City.

"You are truly amazing in everything you do," Tara began. "I've b en [sic] a huge fan forever. Hopefully one day we can work together soon."

She added, "I'm producing a movie Masha's Mushroom it starring Vivica Fox, Billy Zane, Beverly Deangelo, myself Tara Reid, Sade and others it truly an amazing script."

"I would love for you to read it. Shoreline and Universal are doing it. It's a franchise of 5 films," she said. "If you can follow me so I can tell you more. Kindly, Tara."

It's unknown if Nicole responded or following Tara back.
