Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott fuel engagement buzz at jewelry store
Kylie Jenner showed off a bevy of lavish gifts after ringing in her 21st birthday over the weekend, including a pricey vintage Rolls Royce from her rapper beau, Travis Scott, 26. So, when the couple hit up a jewelry store in Calabasas on Monday, Aug. 15, they had us wondering if they were shopping for something other than another b-day present, like an engagement ring perhaps. Kylie and Travis spent about an hour inside of Polacheck's Jewelers before leaving hand-in-hand with, "a couple items," according to a source at E! News. But, don't jump to diamond-ring conclusions so quickly. Another insider claims that the parents to 6-month old daughter Stormi are not engaged at the moment, although they've have spoken about the billionaire makeup mogul's ring preferences. "Kylie and Travis have definitely discussed getting married and she has expressed what type of ring she would want Travis to buy her," the source said. "It would definitely be over the top." Travis even referred to Kylie as his "wifey" in a recent social media message. "Happy bday wifey I love u mommy u my heart rib toes and all," the "Goosebumps" singer said on Instagram. "May GOD continue to bless u and ur spirit. This mark in ur life is the start to more greatness." While it doesn't seem like the lovebirds left the jewelry store with an engagement rock, the source thinks that, "it's only a matter of time," before Travis pops the question.

Paris Hilton reportedly pushes back wedding for more time to plan
Don't fret! Paris Hilton, 37, and Chris Zylka, 33, are still planning on walking down the aisle, but the heiress just needs more time to get the big event together. A source at Page Six says that she's moved the wedding date to the spring of next year, 2019. "They were all set to get married in November," the insider revealed of the ceremony, which will reportedly be held in Los Angeles. "But they have pushed it to May. She wanted more time to plan." Last May, the couple was spotted leaving the Church of the Good Shepherd in Beverly Hills, where they met with the priest who will be officiating their wedding. At the time, Paris wouldn't give up the actual wedding date, claiming, "It's a surprise." Chris, who was most recently on HBO's series "The Leftovers," popped the question to Paris over New Year's in Aspen with a massive 20-carat diamond ring. The socialite reportedly hired 24-hour security to guard the $20 million sparkler. With such expensive taste, we can only imagine how lavish the actual wedding will be, especially now that she has extra time to coordinate.
Scott Disick shares bonding time with 'mini me' son Mason on Instagram
A lot's been going on for Kourtney Kardashian, 39, who had a blowout fight with her sisters on the recent premiere of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," and just split with her boyfriend, Younes Bendjima, 25. So, it's seems natural that her baby daddy, Scott Disick, 35, would be spending more time with their three kids. On Tuesday, Aug. 14, Scott shared footage from some bonding time with his eldest look-a-like son, Mason Disick, on Instagram. "Mini me you complete me," he captioned a selfie with his 8-year-old kiddo on a private jet. He also posted a series of cute videos in which he pretended to be a hair stylist doing Mason's hair. As he slicked it back with a comb, he joked, "silky smooth," and kept repeating, "disco, disco," in the funny clips. Scott and Kourtney have been successfully co-parenting Mason, their daughter Penelope, 6, and son Reign, 3, but don't expect them to jump back into a relationship now that she's single again after two years. A source at Us Weekly says that Scott's happy with his current girlfriend, Sofia Richie, 19, and that, "nothing with Scott is rumored or even remotely on the horizon at all, so while people will inevitably try to spin it and say he'll try and get back with her, they aren't going to." Still, he's apparently pretty thrilled they called it quits because he was never Younes' biggest fan, according to E! News.
Topher Grace gets threatening phone call over role in 'BlacKkKlansman'
We doubt that Topher Grace, 40, got much flack for his lovable teen character, Eric Foreman, on the hit TV series "That '70s Show." But, he's catching some major heat for his latest role as the head of the Klu Klux Klan, David Duke, in the movie "BlacKkKlansman." Topher had to go so far as to get the police involved after he recently received a threatening phone call from a mystery person unhappy about his portrayal. According to TMZ, the caller told the actor that, "the movie was going to ruin race relations in America." Topher, who has no clue how the suspect got a hold of his personal cell number, told law enforcement officers that the person sounded, "angry and aggressive," on the phone, and even threw out homophobic language. It's possible that a hate crime investigation could be opened regarding the incident. The film, directed by Spike Lee, was released on Aug. 10.
LuAnn de Lesseps was reportedly dumped before going back to rehab
LuAnn de Lesseps, 53, has had a pretty rough go around with men and her sobriety as of late. Page Six reports that the "Real Housewives of New York City" star's agent, Rich Super, broke up with her right before she checked into rehab for the second time in July. She first entered treatment for alcohol abuse on the heels her divorce from Tom D'Agostino, 51, following her arrest over New Year's for a drunken mishap at a hotel in Palm Beach, Florida. But, LuAnn had been dating Rich, who was her first serious boyfriend since her marriage to Tom ended, before her recent stay at Silver Hill Hospital in Connecticut. But, the reality star, who has since left rehab, is still on good terms with him following the break up. "Rich and LuAnn are great friends and he still serves as [her] agent," her rep said. She first linked up with the Hollywood hot shot when he signed on to represent her cabaret show called "Countess and Friends." But, things reportedly went south between them when she fell off the wagon. LuAnn sites a lawsuit from her first ex-husband, Count Alexandre de Lesseps, and their two kids as the insulting factor for her drinking again. On Wednesday, Aug. 15, she told Megyn Kelly on "Today," that she was "devastated" when she found out about the legal drama from her family, who claim that she didn't create a trust for the children as stipulated in their original divorce settlement.
Kirstie Alley could use her 'Big Brother' stint to promote Scientology
Kirstie Alley, 67, is confirmed as a celebrity participant in the upcoming season of the U.K. reality show, "Big Brother." As a devout member of the Church of Scientology, some critics think that Kirstie may use the show as a platform to promote the religion rather than to compete. Tony Ortega, who runs an anti-Scientology blog, told The Sun that she may even be getting first-hand direction from the church's leader. "I think it's quite possible that she will get some instruction from David Miscavige about what he'd like to see her say or do on the show," he said. "And, if she does try to recruit someone on the show, it will no doubt be a disaster, and perhaps a ratings coup." Tony thinks the "Cheers" star will stay mum if any of her co-stars dare to ask questions surrounding the church's many controversial allegations. "But chances are, Kirstie won't be asked those questions, and she won't volunteer any real details," he continued. In the past, Kirstie has been pretty vocal about Scientology and was quick to defend the church when "King of Queens" actress Leah Remini left and spoke out against the religion in 2013. "Big Brother," which premieres on Aug. 16, will be cast with housemates who have all been swept up in the middle of media scandals.
Sean Young returns laptops she was accused of stealing from set of 'Charlie Boy'
Finally, an end to the case of the stolen laptops! Page Six reports that on Tuesday, Aug. 14, Sean Young, 58, returned the two laptops that she was accused of stealing from the set of "Charlie Boy" after being fired from the film. Her lawyer dropped them off with the movie's co-writer, Greg Kritkos, who says that the charges against will be dropped. Director Timothy Hines called Sean out for lying when she claimed that she took the computers by accident. But, now that the "Blade Runner" actress has returned the goods, Greg says that they collectively decided not to take legal action. "I'm glad that we can put this behind us," he said. "I wish her all the best. Pray she gets the help she needs." Sean was caught on surveillance video lifting MacBooks with production software on them on Aug. 9. She later told People mag that she thought they were her computers: "I gathered what I believed to be my property but later discovered I was mistaken." Mystery solved.
72-year-old bodybuilder, Dr. Josefina Monasterio, challenges Will Smith to a push-up contest
Will Smith, 49, better start pumping some serious iron if he's going to accept 72-year-old Dr. Josefina Monasterio's push-up challenge. On Wednesday, Aug. 15, the shredded bodybuilder told TMZ that she's calling the "Fresh Prince of Bel Air" actor out for a competition with her in the gym. Will's wife, Jada Pinkett-Smith, 46, is actually the one responsible for connecting her man with the wellness coach. She re-posted one of Josefina's Instagram videos back in July with the caption, "Mama is 72 years young!!! Age ain't NOTHING but a number! You better live!!!!" On Aug. 13, Jada posted a video chat conversation that she had with the inspiring figure on Instagram. "I want you to know, after I saw your video, you got me into the gym hardcore," Jada told Josefina of the inspiring workout clips she shares on social media. The doctor has since exchanged phone numbers with Jada, so we doubt that Will can avoid her request. It's a good thing that he's been getting in shape anyways. "I turn 50 this year," he captioned an Instagram video in the gym on Aug. 8. "I'm about to get into the BEST SHAPE OF MY LIFE!! Don't believe me… Just Watch."
HGTV starts production on 'Brady Bunch' house redesign show
Say goodbye to the "Brady Bunch" house as we know it, because HGTV has officially started production on a new show chronicling a massive redesign of the famous North Hollywood digs. According to TMZ, filming notice papers were distributed to neighbors, who haven't been very receptive to the idea of crews and construction, and drones were seen capturing exterior footage outside of the house on Tuesday, Aug. 14. Guards were also posted in front of the pad throughout the day. The iconic home went up for sale when the owner recently passed away. HGTV ended up out-bidding former NSYNC band member Lance Bass to win the sale of the house for $3.5 million. The network's CEO, David Zaslav, says that they plan to, "restore the 'Brady Bunch' home to its 1970s glory as only HGTV can."
