Jane Fonda is "fine" after having a cancerous growth removed from her lower lip. The acting legend addressed the news on Jan. 15 at an AOL Build Series taping while wearing a bandage on her face. "I just want to explain the bandage," she said. "I just had a cancer taken from my lip. I thought it was going to heal in time before I came before you, but it's fine. I just want to explain it. I don't normally go around like this." She then joked, "The world is falling apart. What's a lip?" On her way into the presentation, Jane covered her mouth as photographers snapped away. Reports speculated that Jane had basal-cell carcinoma, which is the most common form of skin cancer.

Bad date or worse?
Aziz Ansari found himself on the wrong side of the #MeToo movement this week, but many are standing by him. On Jan. 13, an anonymous woman calling herself "Grace" detailed a date she went on with Aziz in a story published by babe.net. The September 2017 date, she says, was great until they got back to his apartment, where they engaged in sexual activity. Though the woman, a Brooklyn photographer, admits she willingly participated, she maintained that the Emmy and Golden Globe winner was pushing her for more than she wanted to give. "I know I was physically giving off cues that I wasn't interested. I don't think that was noticed at all, or if it was, it was ignored," she said. She said she cried on the Uber ride home and texted him the next day to tell him she felt uncomfortable. Screenshots of the conversation show him telling the woman, "Clearly I misread things in the moment and I'm truly sorry." In a statement to the media, Aziz said, "It was true that everything did seem okay to me, so when I heard that it was not the case for her, I was surprised and concerned." As the story started making the rounds, many sided with Aziz. CNN's Ashleigh Banfield blasted the anonymous accuser for publicly crucifying Aziz after a "bad date," calling her out for staying at Aziz's place and continuing on with the sexual encounter. She said the woman is endangering a movement by blowing her story out of proportion. A female New York Times columnist said Aziz is only guilty of "not being a mind reader." The Washington Post said the woman's story was "a gift to anyone who wants to derail #MeToo."
Michelle Williams is ready to wed. The actress is engaged to New York financier Andrew Youmans, according to multiple reports. "She wants a good guy and a stable family life," a source told Us Weekly, which broke the news. The engagement rumors started to swirl when Michelle showed up at the Golden Globes on Jan. 7 with a heart-shaped diamond ring on her left-hand ring finger. At the time, she dismissed the accessory as "beautiful jewelry." News of the engagement came almost 10 years to the day of ex Heath Ledger's death.
"Jersey Shore" star Mike Sorrentino could be dealing with a real, well, situation… as in jail time. The reality TV star will plead guilty to charges of tax fraud, and as a result, he faces up to 15 years in prison. Mike's brother will also plead guilty. The Blast reported that Mike and his brother are accused of not paying all federal income tax owed on approximately $8.9 million that was earned between 2010 and 2012. Prosecutors also said the brothers inflated their business expenses for luxury cars and clothing. They also allegedly deposited cash in multiple accounts to avoid having to report it to the IRS.
Jamie-Lynn Sigler and her husband, Cutter Dykstra, welcomed a son this week. It's the couple's second child. The actress took to Instagram to announce the news on Jan. 16. "He's here," she captioned a photo of herself holding the newborn in her hospital bed. "Jack Adam Dykstra we will talk about your tardiness eventually, but for now we've got a lot of love to give. Thanks to my besties for helping me laugh and smile and to my husband for just being my rock." The couple are also parents to 4-year-old son Beau Kyle Dykstra.
The heir with no hair! Prince William met the shears this week, buzzing off what little hair he had left. The royal stepped out in London on Jan. 18 with a newly shaved head. The jokes about Will's hair — or lack thereof — have been going on for years. A good sport, he's even been in on the joke. Last year while chatting with a hairstylist, he said, "I don't have much hair. I can't give you much business." Hair today, gone tomorrow.
Seal vehemently denied allegations of sexual misconduct lodged against him by actress Tracey Birdsall. On Jan. 16, it was reported that the singer was under criminal investigation for alleged sexual battery stemming from a reported incident that took place at his home in November 2016. Tracey told TMZ that they were friends, but that one day he allegedly lunged at her, forced himself on her and attempted to kiss her as she shouted, "What are you doing?" She said he replied, "I'm kissing you!" She said he tried to grope her too. A rep for Seal said, "Seal vehemently denies the recent allegations made against him by a former neighbor for alleged misconduct more than a year ago. He intends to vigorously defend himself against these false allegations."
Tardy to work
ABC, we have a problem. According to a Jan. 18 report from TMZ, Katy Perry is frustrating producers of "American Idol" because she is habitually late to auditions. Her fellow judges, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan, however, don't seem to be annoyed. But the tardiness isn't the biggest issue. Not even close. TMZ claims that the real problem is that the judges all get along too well and there's no tension like there has been on past seasons. Tension is needed because "that's the kind of heat that makes a show a hit," the report says. Think about it: Simon Cowell vs. Paula Abdul, Mariah Carey vs. Nicki Minaj, or even the comedic jabs between Adam Levine and Blake Shelton on "The Voice." Can't we all just not get along?
Kim Cattrall is not going to be in the third installment of "Sex and the City"… if there ever is one, but that hasn't stopped one of the stars from dreaming. Of late, Sarah Jessica Parker joked that Stephen Colbert or Ellen DeGeneres should play the sexual Samantha. Now, Kim is weighing in on Twitter. "She's be fabulous," she tweeted about Ellen on Jan. 17. A few days later, she went more in depth in her casting choices. "I am partial to [Ellen] but @Oprah was always my 1st," she tweeted. "But then there are the goddess's @TiffanyHaddish or @SofiaVergara. So many fabulous actresses to choose from that will make Samantha their own!" So, the third installment isn't totally dead in the water?
