Alana Thompson officially introduced the world to her bae… until she didn't.

"spooky season," she captioned the pic of herself and her 20-year-old beau holding hands at a pumpkin patch.

The couple donned matching T-shirts featuring a mummy wrapped in toilet paper along with the words "That's How I Roll."

However, she deleted the snap less than a day later as fans criticized her over the four-year age gap.

"No ma'am. Nope nope. 4 years difference later on is no problem," one person said, "but a 16 year old and a 20 year old nope."

"Honey boo boo's new boyfriend is 20?? Girl is 16," another said. "Jail. Jail jail jail."

According to their social media pages, both Alana and Dralin live in Georgia, where the age of consent is 16.

The Instagram debut came less than a month after reports indicated the TLC reality TV star was dating the college student. 

"Dralin and Alana are attached at the hip and hang out together all the time," an insider told The Sun in August. "He was quiet at first, but he's like one of the family now. He's just as fun and crazy as the rest of them."

Judging from their Facebook profiles, Alana and Dralin have apparently been together for six months — on March 29, he changed his relationship status to "in a relationship." Alana also updated her status on her private Facebook page the same day, posting an image with Dralin. He commented "bae" with a heart emoji. 

Boating accident

'Top Chef' fan favorite severely injured, jaw wired shut following boating accident

"Top Chef" star Justin Sutherland was severely injured over the weekend after falling off a boat and into its propeller.

Justin, who stars on TruTV's "Fast Foodies," was boating with friends in Minnesota on Sunday, July 3, when he fell overboard while trying to retrieve his hat.

According to a GoFundMe Page set up to assist with medial bills, the former "Iron Chef America" winner was steering the boat when things went awry.

"While piloting his boat, Justin's hat blew off. He tried to grab it, hit a wave, and was knocked off the boat," friend Beth Gillies said on the fundraising page. "He fell into the water near the motor, and the propeller did a number on his head and left arm. His arm is broken, but his grip remains strong and there appears to be no nerve damage. His jaw is severely broken, but doctors are optimistic that with several more surgeries he will be grinning in no time."

Justin, who also broke several bones, will have to undergo plastic surgery to correct the many lacerations he received. 

The celebrity chef is expected to be okay in time.

"Justin is currently in the hospital and set to be there for some time, having had many surgeries so far and facing many more to come," the GoFundMe said. "While he would love to talk to everyone as he is recuperating, his jaw is currently wired shut, so don't take it personally if he can't call you back just yet."

Justin did not have health insurance at the time of the accident.

Likely due to the fact that he was a fan favorite during Season 16 "Top Chef," donations have poured in to the GoFundMe, with someone even anonymously donating $10,000 on July 6. Thus far, over $100,000 has been raised. 

Over the years, Justin has judged countless TV cooking shows on Food Network, and has cooked for a who's who of Hollywood.

Trist-Done

Khloe Kardashian 'happy' with mystery beau as Tristan Thompson tries again to 'win' her back

Khloe Kardashian is reportedly "done" romantically with Tristan Thompson, despite his best efforts to "win" her back.

Multiple reports claim Khloe has been quietly dating a private equity investor, who she met through sister Kim Kardashian.

"Khloé has moved on and is happy in her new relationship, which is still in its early stages," a source told Us Weekly. "Tristan would want nothing more than to be back with Khloé, so of course, there's jealousy there."

Over the past six years, Tristan and Khloe have split up several times, almost always due to his cheating. In the past, she's typically forgiven him and reconciled. The NBA star, who shares daughter True with the reality TV star, is apparently hoping for history to repeat itself, as Us' source said Tristan has "tried countless times to win [her] back."

"She is done with him for good romantically," the source said of Khloe, claiming she and Tristan are "strictly coparenting." "They are amicable and spend time together when it comes to True."

Over Fourth of July weekend, Tristan was photographed getting flirtatious with a woman in Las Vegas. That's par for the course.

Tristan, the source said, is "single and doing his thing" but "not dating anyone special." The insider added, "He just likes to party and flirty with girls, which is nothing new."

To say Khloe and Tristan's relationship has been rocky would be an understatement. 

Back in 2018, just two days before Khloe gave birth to daughter True, videos emerged of him cheating on the reality TV star with several women. In the following days, he was then linked to even more women.

Khloe stayed with him through all the allegations and videos.

Then, in 2019, he was again accused of cheating on Khloe, this time with Kylie Jenner's now-former BFF Jordyn Woods. In the fallout, Khloe split with her beau but blamed Jordyn, not Tristan, for the alleged hookup and family fracture. Fans, though, turned on Khloe and ripped her for backing Tristan. Soon after, she changed her tune. 

Almost immediately, Tristan tried winning Khloe back and he often left flirty comments on her Instagram. As time went on, a reconciliation seemed imminent. In 2020, the duo officially reconciled and Khloe tweeted that the entire Jordyn-Tristan incident was "hearsay."

Soon after, another woman — this time an Instagram model — said she was intimate with Tristan. Still, Khloe backed the father of her daughter. However, things took a turn in late 2021 when personal trainer Maralee Nichols said in court paperwork that she was pregnant with Tristan's child. The NBA player denied being the father, but admitted to the hook up, which again occurred while he and Khloe were exclusive. In January 2022, following a DNA test, he admitted to fathering the child.

Medical issue

Carlos Santana's wife gives health update following his onstage collapse

Carlos Santana is "doing well" after a scary incident onstage Tuesday night in which he collapsed. 

The music legend was several songs into his set at Pine Knob Music Theater, outside Detroit, Mich., on July 5, when the medical emergency occurred. Reports said he had begun singing "Joy" when he suddenly sat down in front of the drums. He then collapsed backward.

Emergency personnel and staffers rushed to his aid, and workers put up a black tarp to shield concertgoers from Carlos. Shortly after, the "Smooth" guitarist seemed better, waving at the crowd while being wheeled off.

On Wednesday, Carlos shared an Instagram from his wife, Cindy Blackman, which updated his condition.

"Hi Everyone! Carlos & I thank you so much for your prayers, love, care & concern for him! Please know that he's resting and doing very well!," she wrote. "He was diagnosed with heat exhaustion & dehydration."

Cindy, who serves as her husband's drummer, noted the conditions at the outdoor venue.  

"It was 100 degrees on stage and 114 under the lights so that coupled with not enough water is what caused the issue," she said. "He'll be as good as new soon! Thank you again and we love you! Cindy & Carlos."

Relapse?

Video appears to show Bam Margera partying after second rehab escape

Bam Margera appears to have relapsed after he escaped a Florida rehab center for the second time, disturbing new video appears to show.

On June 25, the former reality TV personality vanished from a rehab center and he seems to have met up with several men during the two days in which he was on the run. TMZ obtained a video — purported to be from that time — that Bam appears intoxicated in. The website said Bam met up with some people at a sports bar and had several alcoholic drinks.

During the 48 hours in which his family and police were desperately looking for him, the one-time MTV star went to the hospital for an injured wrist. Bam even told one of the men he was with to snap a photo of him in a hospital bed. 

After leaving the hospital, the prankster went to a strip club in Pompano Beach, Florida, the report says. There, he told his pals to keep the women away from him.

Eventually Bam ended up at a friend's house, where he appears to be unconscious in the video.

On June 27, Bam was located at a hotel in Deerfield Beach, Fla., where friends, family and police staged an intervention. Afterward, Bam agreed to go back to treatment. 

Bam's late June escape from rehab was his second of the month, as he was reported missing from his court-mandated rehab stay back on June 13. He was found hiding out in a Delray Beach, Fla., hotel room two days later. 

Recycled fashion

Melissa Joan Hart rewears 21-year-old dress to celebrate holiday

Melissa Joan Hart's wardrobe is stepping back in time. 

Over the weekend, the "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" actress shared an up-to-date image in which she donned a red eagle-emblazoned dress. It's the same dress she debuted on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" in 2001.

It's also the same dress she's worn nearly every year on the Fourth of July.

"The eagle dress has landed," she wrote alongside a series of images showing her in the dress, one from July 4 and others from over the years. 

In speaking about her dress, Melissa, 46, said she purchased it in 2000 in Melbourne, Australia. 

"I wore it on the #LateShow with #JayLeno in 2021 after 9/11 when I only wore red, white and blue for the better part of a year," she said, noting the clothing hangs in her vacation house in Lake Tahoe.

"It became a July 4th staple in my Tahoe closet in about 2008 and I have since worn it every year minus 2019 when I spent Independence Day on the east coast," she said. 

Melissa's Instagram post also showed her in the oft-recycled dress standing alongside Hilary Duff and Bryan Cranston — a photo, she said, that was "doctored."

"That never actually happened in my memory," she said. 

While the of-legal-drinking-age eagle outfit got all the attention, the actress began her holiday weekend in a green floral dress. She also shared an incredible video of a water rescue simulation exercise at Lake Tahoe.

The bird is the word for Melissa.

Props to you!

David Harbour reveals surprising fact about 'Stranger Things' prop

Prop it up! David Harbour has revealed that the sword he used in the "Stranger Things" season finale is the exact same weapon Arnold Schwarzenegger used in the "Conan" films.

"Nerd alert. The prop at the end of episode 9 is the Atlantean sword from the CONAN films," David revealed on Instagram, while sharing several scenes from the Netflix show. "A lovely fan found a still of when it was established in ep 7 and used by an unlucky inmate who met an untimely death near the cells at the side of our gladiatorial pit."

The sword is very consequential in the Conan movies.

In describing the "actual sword used in the filming of both CONAN films," David, 47, couldn't hide his excitement and gave a shout out to the "Stranger Things" props department.

"It was heavy as hell, and such a tremendous honor to wield," he said. In ending his gushing tribute, he tagged Arnold and said he was "ready to accept your notes on my technique."

Fans of the show were stunning at David's fun fact, as many noted that they loved "Stranger Things" even more now. 

"How's that for an Easter egg," one person happily commented.

Some fans claimed they knew the sword was iconic the second they saw it. 

"My husband called it immediately and I was like '……nah…they wouldn't really…' APPARENTLY THEY WOULD," one commented. Another user said, "I called it when my hubby and I were watching the episode! He looked at me like I was nuts at the time."

Interesting reveal

Joe Rogan reveals he's rejected multiple Trump interviews: 'I don't want to help him'

Joe Rogan is making it clear that he's not part of the MAGA universe.

On a recent episode of Lex Fridman's podcast, the host of the hugely popular "The Joe Rogan Experience" podcast said Donald Trump has wanted to be on his podcast several times, and Joe has turned him down "every time."

"The Trump era is also going to be one of the weirder times," Joe said. "When people look back historically about the division in this country, he's such a polarizing figure that so many people felt like they could abandon their own ethics and morals and principles just to attack him and anybody who supports him because he is an existential threat to democracy itself."

Rogan continued, "I'm not a Trump supporter in any way, shape or form. I've had the opportunity to have him on my show more than once — I've said no, every time. I don't want to help him. I'm not interested in helping him."

During the chat, Joe defended his decision to have others on his show whom he doesn't necessarily agree with politically, citing Kanye West specifically.

"Kanye's an artist," Joe said. "Kanye doing well or not doing well, doesn't change the course of our country."

According to polls, Trump is in a hypothetical dead heat with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for the 2024 republican nomination for president. Not long ago, Trump had a stranglehold on the nomination.

Joe, who has publicly supported Gov. DeSantis, doesn't want to throw the former president a lifeline. 

"I think you can revitalize and rehabilitate someone's image in a way that is pretty shocking," the comedian said.

Regardless of his support, the UFC commentator thinks either DeSantis or Trump will beat Joe Biden, who he dubbed "a dead man."

"Biden shakes hands with people that aren't even there when he gets off stage," the podcaster said. "I think he's seeing ghosts."

Tom Hanks doesn't 'understand' why Tim Allen isn't in 'Lightyear'

Tom Hanks is still confused about why Disney's new "Lightyear" film doesn't feature Tim Allen's voice, particularly given that the "Home Improvement" star voiced the beloved Buzz Lightyear action figure in all four of the "Toy Story" films. 

In an interview with CinemaBlend, Tom, who was the voice of Woody in "Toy Story," was asked about his new "Elvis" movie being in theaters at the same time as a Tim-less "Lightyear."

"How 'bout that? I actually wanted to go head-to-head with Tim Allen, and then they didn't let Tim Allen do it. I don't understand that," Tom said. 

The "Forrest Gump" actor said he just hopes that people return to the theaters to see movies. 

"Here's the thing: I want to go back in the theater with a bunch of strangers and leave with something in common," he said. "That's what I want to do. And going to see a movie with them, I'm looking forward to that."

Since announcing that Chris Evans was starring as the action hero, Disney has explained several times that "Lightyear" is the origin story of Tim Allen's action figure. Still, the explanation hasn't sat well. Even Tim shaded the movie, telling "Extra," "It's a wonderful story. It just doesn't seem to have any connection to the toy, and it's a little…I don't know. It just has no relationship to Buzz. It's just no connection. I wish there was a better connection."

There has been online speculation that Disney replaced Tim because of his conservative political views. Interestingly enough, Tim is currently filming an upcoming Disney series called "The Santa Clause."

Time to celebrate

Amanda Kloots has 'reframed' husband Nick Cordero's COVID death

Amanda Kloots remembers the heartbreak she felt when her husband, Nick Cordero, died of COVID complications on July 5, 2000. She's now "reframed" his death and even celebrates it. 

In a touching tribute to her late husband, "The Talk" host said she and 3-year-old son Elvis, think about Nick every day.

"Two years ago today Elvis and I said goodbye to Nick. It was the hardest day of my life. There hasn't been a day I haven't missed him. Nick was a presence. His smile and laugh lit up a room. He loved everyone and was a great friend to anyone that knew him," she wrote alongside a series of photos and videos of the Broadway star.

Amanda then retold a story of a dream her friend experienced involving Nick.

"Last year on this day my girlfriend told me about beautiful dream she had," she wrote. "We were all at a party and Nick was there looking happy and radiant. When she asked him why he was there he said, 'What do you mean? Today is my birthday. It's the one day I get to come back and celebrate with everyone I love.'"

The dream changed everything for Amanda and allowed her to think of July 5 differently. In her eyes, it's a day that should be celebrated.  

"Hearing this completely changed my mood. He's celebrating today? He's happy? Birth and death have so many similarities," Amanda said. "I can't possibly know what's on the other side but he was sending me a clear message. I quickly reframed this day. July 5th is Nicks 'new birth' day instead of his death day. This idea brought a positive light to a otherwise dark day. 

"I decided then that I will celebrate with him today and always on July 5th," she said. 

Amanda's post was set to Justin Bieber's "Ghost." In ending her heartwarming Instagram message she stole a line from the song.

"I love honey," she said. "I miss you more than life."
