Baby's here! Khloe Kardashian welcomes a girl

Welcome to motherhood, Khloe Kardashian.

The "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" star welcomed a girl on April 12 in Cleveland, according to TMZ.

It's the first child for Khloe, 33, and the second for NBA star Tristan Thompson, 27, who has a 1-year-old son, Prince, with an ex-girlfriend. The birth comes just days after video surfaced of Tristan cheating on Khloe with multiple women — the most recent of which was on April 7.

TMZ said the birth came around 4 AM on Thursday, April 12, just a few hours after Tristan wrapped up a basketball game in Cleveland. The NBA star was reportedly on hand for the birth. The site said her sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Kim Kardashian West were there during the birth, as was her mom Kris Jenner and her BFF Malika Haqq.

No other details, including the name of the newborn, are known.

Khloe revealed the child's gender on the March 4 episode of her family's reality show. She later said on Twitter, "I am now so excited my daughter will have forever best friends with [my sister Kim's daughter] Chicago and [my sister Kylie's daughter] Stormi!! God is great!!! Thank you Lord for our princess."

Khloe's pregnancy was first reported in September 2017. She confirmed the news late last year on Instagram, sharing a black-and-white image of her and Tristan, who plays for the Cleveland Cavaliers, holding her belly.

"My greatest dream realized! We are having a baby! I had been waiting and wondering but God had a plan all along," she captioned the image. "He knew what He was doing. I simply had to trust in Him and be patient. I still at times can't believe that our love created life!

She then praised Tristan, unaware of the cheating videos that would surface while she was nine months pregnant.

"Tristan, thank you for loving me the way that you do! Thank you for treating me like a Queen! Thank you for making me feel beautiful at all stages! Tristan, most of all, Thank you for making me a MOMMY!!!," she wrote. "You have made this experience even more magical than I could have envisioned! I will never forget how wonderful you've been to me during this time! Thank you for making me so happy my love!"

Prior to the cheating scandal, marriage seemed to be in the cards for these two. While speaking to Ellen DeGeneres earlier this year, Khloe said she "hopes" she and Tristan will marry, but added that they were "not in any rush for that."

"As you know I've rushed quite a few things before," she said, referring to her 2009 wedding to Lamar Odom, whom she'd met just a month before they got married. "Right now, I'm so loving the place I'm in and very happy with how things are going. We talk about it for sure. What's meant to be will be."

Rob Kardashian unexpectedly snags rare Tom Brady card worth $250k

Rob Kardashian scored a massive win this week after purchasing a case of football cards that contained an incredibly rare Tom Brady card that's valued at upwards of $250,000.

The Tom Brady MVP Nebula parallel card is the only one like it in the world. It's one of one. And no, Rob, who's a huge sports card collector, didn't know that his purchase contained that valuable card until after the packages were opened.

According to TMZ, Rob purchased a case of 2020 Panini Mosaic Choice (hobby) cards from The Bullpen in Los Angeles. A case, which typically costs around $10,000, comes with 20 boxes.

While Rob phoned in the order, he allowed the guys at the store to open the packages of cards on his behalf. The guys even live-streamed it on Instagram, and they were beside themselves with glee when the Tom Brady card showed up.

"That's one of the biggest cards I've pulled in my life," one man screamed.

The card, according to experts, is worth anywhere from $50,000 to $250,000, depending on the quality. Since the card was pulled directly from the packages and immediately placed into a protective case, it's expected to be valued on the high end of that spectrum.

Rob's haul also included other highly collectable cards worth several thousand dollars each. 

"Rob crushed it," one expert told TMZ. 

It's unclear if Rob plans to sell the cards or keep them as a part of his collection.

Pamela Anderson 'feeling puffy' after quarantine weight gain

Pamela Anderson said she's been struggling with "the epidemic of loneliness" after fleeing the United States for her native Canada in the early days of the coronavirus pandemic.

The former "Baywatch" star also lamented her current apathy toward working out, despite having a gym at her family ranch.

"I have a gym that I look at every so often. I feel a little puffy but winter is coming so I won't feel cold," she said on "Loose Women."

Pam, though, thinks her body looks better when it's curvy.

"I try to keep on a bit of weight – I think it's better on me," she once claimed.

Still, while in Canada, Pam is also carrying the weight of being a mother to two adults sons, one of whom she hasn't seen in seven months. 

"I miss my sons terribly and there are times I want to get into my car and just drive to them, there are frantic moments where I just want to see them," she said of Brandon, 24, and Dylan, 22. "There is an epidemic of loneliness, a lack of intimacy with technology, we have to embrace what's happening now instead of the past, human contact is very important and we need to keep in touch."

She added, "They're in L.A. and I'm here. If you come to Canada you have to quarantine for a couple of weeks. I went to L.A. I have seen Brandon but I haven't seen Dylan for seven months. We FaceTime but it's not great. I need more. I want to hug them."

While the pandemic was certainly one of Pam's biggest reasons for hightailing it to Canada earlier this year, the upcoming election also played into her mind.

"I don't think I want to be in L.A .during the election… oh yes, mail-in ballot… oh boy, the government is ridiculous," she said. "I don't know what to say but you have to vote or you can't complain about it."

'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.

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."

Warning

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."
