Set Up For Life

Hef ensured wife Crystal would be taken care of

Soon after tying the knot with his 3rd wife, Crystal Harris, on New Year's Eve 2012, Playboy founder Hugh Hefner, set up a plan that would make certain that she would be taken care of after his passing.


TMZ has obtained the deed to the Hollywood Hills home that is included in a trust that is controlled by 2009 Playmate Harris, 31, which details a 5,900 square foot home, which was purchased back in 2013.

And, a TMZ source familiar with the 91-year old global icon's estate plan, says that Hef also left Harris $5 million, all part of a prenuptial agreement that the two signed prior to their marriage.


The lavish home reportedly boasts four bedrooms, five baths and an infinity pool!

The magazine mogul forever known for his signature pipe and smoking jacket, died peacefully in his Los Angeles residence on Wednesday, September 27.


'Dynasty' star Catherine Oxenberg responds to Keith Raniere's sentencing

Former "Dynasty" star Catherine Oxenberg is applauding United States attorneys and a federal judge after slapping NXIVM founder Keith Raniere with a 120-year sentence for sex crimes.


"U saved my daughter India and countless others, I am forever grateful. TY for putting this predator behind bars," Catherine tweeted to the US Attorney's Office in New York on Oct. 27.

For years, the soap star has been on a crusade against Keith and NXIVM, as her daughter, India, was in the group. Catherine pleaded with media to shine a light on the group that claimed to be a self-help organization. She argued that it was actually a sex cult that starved women and was being led by Keith. 

Many of the women, including Catherine's daughter, were branded with Keith's initials.

India, who currently stars in a docu-series about the organization called "Seduced," read an impact statement before the court, claiming Keith starved her to look "like a 12-year-old girl." She said he also rubbed his fingers across the brand like cattle.

"MY precious daughter… so courageous. MY heart breaks," Catherine tweeted shortly after India spoke to the court.

Before the judge's sentence, Keith reportedly professed his innocence and claimed the victims were lying in their statements. He added that he was "deeply remorseful."

"Only a  monster would discredit his victims.. remorseful for what? himself? Typical sociopath," Catherine tweeted.

While appearing on HBO's "The Vow" and Starz's "Seduced: Inside the NXIVM Cult," Catherine said she always felt a sense of guilt because she's the one who introduced India to NXIVM (back when she thought it was a self-help group). Many other celebrities were also a part of the group, including "Smallville" star Allison Mack, who last year pleaded guilty to racketeering for her key role in NXIVM. 

After the sentencing, many of NXIVM's former members celebrated Keith's fate.

"I'm in a total state of shock right now," whistleblower and voice actress Sarah Edmondson said on Whitney Cummings' Instagram Live. "120 years. How many lives is that? I don't even know what that means."

Sarah, who was the former head of NXIVM's Vancouver office, added, "We did it."

Filmmaker Mark Vicente, who was among the top brass of the group before turning whistleblower, tweeted, "120 years!"

Getting real

Kathy Hilton joins 'RHOBH' as a 'friend'

Welcome to the show, Kathy Hilton.

After months of rumors, it's being reported that Kathy Hilton is officially joining "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," but she won't be holding a diamond. Instead, Paris and Nicky Hilton's mom will be cast as "a friend of the show," TMZ said.


According to the report, Kathy and Bravo finalized the deal last week, paving the way for her to make regular appearances, but not be saddled with the responsibilities of a full-time cast member, such as attending the reunion shows.

Kathy, the sister of current reality star Kyle Richards and former star Kim Richards, has appeared briefly on "RHOBH" several times before.

Speculation about Kathy's potential involvement in the show is nothing new. In fact, last year rumors circulated that she could become a full-time member of the show.

"I would be happy if my sister joined," Kyle said on "Watch What Happens Live" as rumors surfaced. "I've had one sister on, why not have another sister on."

Kyle added that Kathy is "one of the funniest people there is."

"She's a practical joker and she's very, very funny," Kyle said, "so I think she'd be an amazing Housewife actually."


Kathy's news sparks a busy week for the 90210 franchise. On Oct. 26, it was announced that Crystal Kung Minkoff, the founder of Real Coco and wife of filmmaker Rob Minkoff, was joining the cast of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills." The mother of two will be the first Asian-American Housewife on "RHOBH." In fact, Kathy even commented on an Instagram photo that Crystal posted.

Kathy replied, "Oh yes you do!!! Looking like a boss Mama."

Election diss

Kanye reacts to Aniston's plea to not vote for him

Kanye West seems to be brushing off a jab that Jennifer Aniston threw his way last week while voting in the 2020 election.

On Oct. 23, the "Friends" star said she voted for Joe Biden.

"This whole thing isn't about one candidate or one single issue," she said. "It's about the future of this country and of the world. Vote for equal human rights, for love, and for decency."

In her parting shot, she added, "PS – It's not funny to vote for Kanye. I don't know how else to say it. Please be responsible."

Kanye clearly caught wind of the shade. In a since-deleted Instagram post, the rapper shared a screenshot of an article titled, "Jennifer Aniston Endorses Joe Biden, Tells Fans 'It's Not Funny to Vote for Kanye.'" E! News said Kanye wrote alongside the screenshot, "Wow 😳 that Rogan interview got em shook Let's gooooooooo."

The "Rogan interview" that Kanye is likely referring to is his recent chat on Joe Rogan's podcast. In that chat, he urged people to write his name in, as he's only on the ballot in a few states, making it essentially impossible to win 270 electoral votes.

"There couldn't be a better time to put a visionary in the captain's chair. I'm not here to down [Donald] Trump or down [Joe] Biden, I'm just here to express why God has called me to take this position," he said. "I'm a great leader because I listen and I'm empathetic. I do believe in world peace."


Since his decision to run for President, there's been much talk that the bid is nothing more than a ploy to get President Trump reelected, as most political experts believe Kanye's candidacy would siphon votes away from Joe Biden. When Forbes asked him about the theory that he's in the race to be a spoiler on behalf of Trump, Kanye said, "I'm not going to argue with you."

New set

Simon Cowell gets $112k set of veneers after e-bike crash

Simon Cowell is sinking his teeth into his recovery.

The "America's Got Talent" host received a new set of veneers this week after visiting Beverly Hills-based cosmetic dentist Dr. Apa. 

"it official. i'm going to hollywood!! actually DUBAI THIS WEEKEND," the doc wrote on Instagram on Oct. 26 alongside a picture of a smiling Simon. In the image, Simon holds up an "American Idol" card, despite having left the show in 2010.

"it truly is amazing working with amazing people," Dr. Apa added. "thank you @simoncowell for putting your trust in us."

Apa previously hinted that he was working on Simon's mouth, having posted a photo to Instagram with the TV judge on Oct. 21.

"anyone else curious to see? arguably one of THE most talked about smiles in the industry," he captioned the photo that showed Simon wearing a face mask.

Page Six previously reported that Simon already had veneers that were done by a different dentist, but he wanted a new set that was "less bulky."

The recent procedure took place over two three-hour appointments and included 28 teeth, Page Six reported, noting that Apa typically charges $4,000 per tooth. If that's the case, the cost of Simon's veneer job ran around $112,000.

Simon has been on the mend after a horrific e-bike crash in August that nearly left him paralyzed. According to witnesses, speed was a factor in the accident, as Simon was allegedly thrown in the air after the bike did a "giant wheelie."

"He did a turn in his courtyard, changed gear, and then the bike went into a wheelie and threw him off the back," a source told Page Six shortly after the accident. "Simon was in complete agony and was stretchered out of his home and taken in an ambulance to hospital."

"Friends at the scene quickly checked that he could move fingers and toes… When he fell off the bike, he landed right on his back, which broke in a number of places," the source continued. "He had to have a metal rod inserted into his back."

Doctors said he narrowly missed severing his spinal cord, Page Six reported.

Gym injury

The Rock needs stitches on face after gym injury

No pain, no gain!

On Oct. 26, Dwayne Johnson took to Instagram to record a video that showed him bleeding from the side of his eyebrow. The injury, he said, came while he was working out in the gym, a place he affectionately calls "the iron paradise."

"We ain't playin' tiddlywinks and we ain't reciting nursery rhymes – it's called the #ironparadise for a reason and things get extremely intense," he wrote alongside the video. "Threw around my 50lb chains for a drop set – I got lumped up and need stitches."

While somewhat breathless, the actor ran his finger through the blood rolling down his face and tasted it at one point.

"Taste your blood, keep training and stitch up later – rules of the house," he said, adding that his blood tastes "real good."

"I can confirm my blood tastes like [his tequila] Teremana, calluses and BlaMoan (black and samoan) Hot Sauce," he said.


Before continuing on with his bloody workout, he sent a note of encouragement to his followers. 

"Have a productive week, my friends – keep it light and a lil' fun, but get after it like a MF," he wrote. 

Body blow

Kate Beckinsale claps back at online body shamer

Words have consequences — at least that's what one Instagram user found out when criticizing Kate Beckinsale.


Recently, the actress posted a video to social media that showed her in bed talking to her cat. One of her followers found very little redeeming about the video or her, for that matter.

"You're dreadfully thin," the person wrote. 

Kate wasn't about to take the mean spirited comment laying down (although she was laying down), and she fired back at the troll.

"You're wearing speedo goggles — it might be hard for you to be entirely confident about what you're seeing — much less comment about it," she clapped back, according to a screenshot captured on the Comments by Celebs Instagram page.

Sweet dreams 💕

A post shared by Kate Beckinsale (@katebeckinsale) on

Kate is well known for coming back hard at her haters. Last year someone called her "too old" to be sharing bikini pictures and "looking for attention." She replied, "I can't imagine how unhappy you must feel to leave comments like this. People have all sorts of things going on that they put a brave face on and you'd never know. Sending love and the real hope you receive this message in the spirit that it's meant. I know you have more to offer than leaving mean comments that illuminate far more about you than they do about the people you choose to comment on."

Actor David Spade was also on the receiving end of a Kate clap back last after he attempted to troll her for her short romance with Pete Davidson.

"You like them young!" David wrote, alluding to Kate and Pete's 20-year age gap. He added, "(Now don't fight back and roast me just quietly stew and take the hit)." 

She wrote back, "@Davidspade never gonna happen grandpa." 

At the same time, another commenter said they were "disappointed" in Kate's "dating choices." She replied, "Fairly let down by your wonky beard but thought possibly rude to say."


Sarah Silverman warns against cancel culture

Sarah Silverman is bemoaning the lasting effects of cancel culture, believing that people should have a "path to redemption" and not be permanently judged for past actions.


The comedian, a proud progressive, acknowledges that progressives are the ones largely pushing cancel culture, but believes people can change. 

"Without a path to redemption, when you take someone, you found a tweet they wrote seven years ago or a thing that they said, and you expose it and you say, this person should be no more, banish them forever," she said on The Sarah Silverman Podcast,.

People, by nature, "go towards love," she said, but that isn't necessarily always a good thing. On the podcast, she spoke of a friend who joined a neo-Nazi group in his youth after someone from the hate group expressed concern about him smoking at a young age.

"If we don't give these people a path to redemption, then they're going to go where they are accepted, which is the… dark side," she said. 

That same friend now works to get people out of extreme hate groups.

Without that offramp to forgiveness, Sarah said those who've been "canceled" are "going to find someplace where they are accepted and it's not going to be with progressives, which ironically means to be changed, progress."

"I think there should be some kind of path. Do we want people to be changed? Or do we want them to stay the same to freeze in a moment we found on internet from 12 years ago?" she said.

Sarah knows all about being in the bullseye of cancel culture. In 2007 she participated in a sketch for the Comedy Central series The Sarah Silverman Program wherein she wore blackface. The footage reemerged more than a decade later and cost Sarah a film role, she's previously said.

Sarah has previously spoken about the dangers of cancel culture. Last year she told the New Yorker that she's apologized often for her blackface scandal. Still, she added that critics "should take into account the nuance of things and the people's intentions and their room for growth and if they have changed or if they have not — there's a big difference."

Behavior concerns

Wendy Williams addresses comments about her erratic behavior

Wendy Williams is thanking her fans for continuing to watch her eponymous talk show, despite recent bizarre behavior and insinuations from her former DJ that she's not sober and needs professional help.

"I always say I love you for watching 'cause I really, really do. I come here every day and I try to do the best that I can for you," Wendy said during her show on Monday. "I appreciate you watching, but even after all of these years, it's still work. An effort put in for the hour I'm out here, you know? I guess every day is not perfect, but I'm not a perfectionist. I'm not perfect."

"I do appreciate you putting in the effort to watch us, and I love entertaining you. You know?" she continued. "It's not easy. It is not easy, you're a tough crowd."

The comments came following her Oct. 23 show in which she seemed slow, took long pauses, slurred her words and appeared to have dilated pupils. Further, fans also noticed that DJ Boof, the show's longtime DJ, had been replaced. Wendy, 56, made no mention of the DJ change. 

Over the weekend a "Wendy Williams Show" viewer theorized that her camp is "watching" her "spiral" and implored her to "seriously get help." Another fan wondered if the perceived erratic behavior was a reason for DJ Boof's abrupt exit.

"Yup exactly and it will all come out.." he replied. "Y'all have no idea what's really going on and everyone there is afraid to speak up because they don't wanna lose their jobs.. this is going to play out bad.. I feel sorry for the workers and victims."


Wendy has previously acknowledged her struggles with addiction. In March 2019, she revealed that she'd been living in a sober house for addiction-related issues for what she said was "some time now."

"You know, I've had a struggle with cocaine in my past and I never went to a place to get the treatment," she said at the time. "I don't know how, except God was sitting on my shoulder and I just stopped."

love lines

Uma Thurman reportedly 'madly in love' with architect beau

Uma Thurman has a case of puppy love.


The actress is reportedly dating architect Peter Sabbeth, and the romance all started because of her dog. 

Page Six reported that Uma and Peter met on the beach in the Hamptons in New York over the summer.

"Peter had no idea who Uma was at the time. She was walking on the beach, known locally as Long Beach, near him, so he asked her to watch his dog while he took a swim," a source said. "Uma said OK, watched his dog while he swam, and now, a few months later, they are madly in love and looking to buy a home together in the Hamptons."

The source said Uma was photographed that particular day walking her Italian greyhound rescue pup and a smaller pug.

Peter, 50, is a principal at Oza Sabbeth architects, Page Six says.


The "Pulp Fiction" star's love life has been well-chronicled over the years, as she was famously married to Ethan Hawke from 1998 to 2005. The duo share two children together. Uma also has another child with French financier Arpad Busson.

In 2005, Uma spoke about being suddenly single while playing an unattached woman in the film "Prime."

"I know what it's like to wake up a decade later and be single again and alone again and thinking you had a plan," she said at the time, "and the plan got derailed."
