The homemaking legend took to Instagram on Tuesday to post a photo of her shorter hair and perfect makeup, and she looked somewhat different than the way we're accustomed to seeing her. She is, however, still sporting her signature short, blonde locks.

"Oh boy! What a great haircut can do!!!," she captioned a photo of her makeover, adding that she's "ready for a slew of holiday parties!!!!"

Her hairstylist, Eugene Toye, posted a photo of the cut, too, writing, "The beautiful @marthastewart48 came in for a fresh new haircut."

"New makeup is always fun," makeup artist Nicole Daisy Toye wrote, "thanks @marthastewart48 for letting me play with my new @cledepeaubeaute @armanibeauty @ctilburymakeup @nudestix."

Martha's new look seems to be getting the approval of her Instagram following, as many have voiced their glee.

"You look GORGEOUS," model Karlie Kloss commented. "Queer Eye" veteran Carson Kressley said she looked "HAWT."

Howard Stern drops Marvel bombshell in hot mic moment

Howard Stern is apparently joining the Marvel Universe, he accidentally revealed on his SiriusXM show.

While not realizing his microphone was still hot during a break in his show, the radio icon let it slip that he's a part of Marvel's "Doctor Doom" project, which has yet to be announced.

The bombshell occurred as Howard spoke with his show's producer about booking potential guests for the show. He then said his schedule was booked solid for the summer. 

"Are you working this summer?," co-host Robin Quivers asked Howard, to which he replied, "I told you, I'm going to do Doctor Doom."

While this would be a major role for many people, Howard admitted that he's not exactly enjoying the experience. "Believe me,  I'm f****** miserable about it," he said.

During the hot mic moment, which was obtained by TMZ, the "King of all Media" told his crew that he reached out to Robert Downey Jr. for some acting tips, and he also asked his producer if he had "Iron Man" director Jon Favreau's number.

Little is known about "Doctor Doom," including whether it will be a film or Disney+ series. There is also mystery surrounding what character Howard will play in the project. 

Release anniversary

On anniversary of prison release, new footage of Bill Cosby's ride home is released

It's been one year since Bill Cosby was sent home from prison, and new video from that day shows the disgraced comedian detailing how he found out about his release. 

During his ride home from SCI Phoenix, Cosby's publicist recorded their conversation. 

"It's starting to hit," Cosby told Andrew V. Wyatt in the newly released one-year-old video. "I was in the bed, in the cot, and they opened the door because it's one o'clock, and about four or five guys yelling, 'Bill, get up! You're going home!' And they put the shoes, my shower shoes on the wrong foot, and I said wait, and they said, 'No, you don't understand, you're free!' And I said, 'What is this, Juneteenth?' But man, when I left, murderers, rapists, bank robbers, wife beaters, all clapping."

On June 30, 2021, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court overturned the comedian's felony sexual assault conviction nearly three years into his three-to-10-year prison sentence. In 2018, he was found guilty of drugging and assaulting Andrea Constand, a Temple University employee, at his home in 2004.

According to the state's Supreme Court judges last year, Cosby should not have faced a criminal trial because a previous district attorney had years earlier agreed not to charge the man once known as America's Dad after he was deposed in a civil lawsuit that Andrea brought in 2005 in which he gave potentially incriminating testimony. 

The Supreme Court also disagreed with the trial judge's decision to let five other women testify to prove a pattern of abuse. In layman's terms, the high court said Cosby's rights were violated.

During the ride home, Cosby told his rep, "I'm a free man, you know." He later said he needed to "rest" because his heart was "heavy."

Prior to the lengthy video, Andrew had teased its release. He also posted a up-to-date photo of the man once known as Inmate NN7687, which "The Cosby Show" alum reposted. 

"After two years and 10 months fighting for my life and the truth – one year of freedom home with my family sure looks good on me (At least that's what my wife says)," Cosby captioned the  photo. 

The anniversary of the release comes just a week after a jury found Cosby liable in a civil case brought by Judy Huth, a woman who claimed he sexually assaulted her as a 17-year-old in the 1970. She was awarded $500,000 in damages.

The woman alleged that Cosby molested her in a bedroom at the Playboy Mansion.

"I was elated," Judy said of the verdict. "It has been so many years, so many tears."

Cosby's rep said the former actor was happy with the verdict. "What happened today wasn't a victory, because they didn't get the punitive damages," the spokesman said. 

Illness

Danny Bonaduce opens up about mystery illness than left him unable to speak, walk

Unable to walk or form sentences, Danny Bonaduce was a shell of himself after coming down with a mystery illness earlier this year. He's still at 100%.

The former "Partridge Family" star was first alerted to his health situation after his wife, Amy, noticed his strange speech pattern in May. From there, his symptoms only got worse.

"I couldn't walk at all," he told "Good Morning America" this week. "I couldn't do anything like that. She looked really nervous. And she said, 'You're not saying words, you're not speaking English,' which of course is preposterous to me."

"We call an ambulance and [it] took me to the hospital where I remained for the first five days and remember very little of it," he said.

After his health became more stable, the actor was determined to find out what was wrong with him, but doctors were flummoxed.

"I couldn't walk," he said. "I couldn't keep my balance. I slurred really badly. I was afraid of everything. I was afraid of my stairs for God's sake — I was hoping for a diagnosis but did not get one."

Doctors, however, were able to rule out a stroke. 

"There was nothing that said this was gonna happen," he added. "Take time to consider your health and what you're doing. Pay attention."

Although his health remains a mystery, Danny is well enough to return to his Seattle radio show, which he did on Monday, June 27. 

"My brain is still a little fuzzy but that's never stopped me — or the people who hire me," he joked on Instagram before returning to the airwaves.

Luke Combs: 'Having a kid messed with my head'

As his family size increases, Luke Combs is trying to get smaller.

The country superstar is opening up about his weight, indicating he's ready to slim down for the sake of his newborn son, who he and his wife welcomed this month.

"Having a kid has messed up my head on this thing in the best way," Luke told Zane Lowe on "Apple Music 1" on Tuesday, June 28. "I want to be around … I'm fine right now, my cholesterol and my blood pressure is fine 'cause I'm a younger guy, but by the time I'm 45, it's not going to be because of the shape that I'm in."

The "Beautiful Crazy" singer said his weight has always "bugged" him, but he's paying more attention to it now that he's a father. 

"Especially when you're younger, you're like, man I just got like a horrible genetic dice roll on this thing," he continued, adding that his diet is also to blame. "It's like, not that I don't pig out, 'cause I do pig out. I'm not trying to say it's not my fault because it is in a lot of ways [it is.]"

Luke likens losing weight to a day on the links.

"I know what to do and how to do it, and I hate to keep going back to golf, but when I go play golf I can hit a good golf shot, I've done it a bunch of times, I can't do it consistently, and my relationship with food has been the same thing," he said. "I know what to do and how to do it and why to do it and when to do it."

The CMA Entertainer of the Year said he's still "comfortable" in his own skin, but he's affected by how people look at him. 

"Sometimes I think, man I don't want people to think of me in this way where it's like, this guy doesn't care about himself," he said. 

Food issue

Acclaimed chef details what it's really like cooking for 'complicated' Victoria Beckham

Why'd you have to go and make things so complicated?

A very famous, highly-celebrated chef is opening up about his experience cooking for Victoria Beckham, claiming she didn't exactly want to spice up her dietary life.

Dani Garcia, a three Michelin star chef, recalled Victoria accompanying her husband, David Beckham, to the June 2019 wedding of Sergio Ramos and Pilar Rubio in Spain. Dani was hired to cook for the wedding.

"It was very strange. Victoria Beckham changed the whole menu," the chef said while on Spanish TV's popular "El Hormiguero" show. "It was very sad because when you make such an effort, not just me and my team but the bride and groom and everyone else to create a unique menu."

The former Spice Girl wasn't enthralled by the menu, it seems. 

"Hers was totally different and just based around vegetables. And then there were some odd things that I've never seen in my life," Dani said. "She had coconut water, all the time, a bowl of mints and then on the other side hydroalcoholic gel which is very famous now but back then wasn't because the Covid pandemic hadn't started."

He concluded, "It was complicated giving Victoria her menu that night."

Not long after the comments, a source close to the fashion icon came to her defense. 

"This makes a great story but isn't fair or accurate – the most Victoria would have done when asked about dietary requirements is ask for some plain fish and vegetables," the source said. 

Victoria's stringent diet is well known and hardly disputed. She once said her favorite meal is whole grain toast with salt.

David spoke about his wife's relationship with food just months ago on the River Che Table 4 podcast. 

"I get quite emotional about food and wine, when I'm eating something great I want everyone to try it," he said. "Unfortunately I'm married to someone that has eaten the same thing for the last 25 years. Since I met her she only eats grilled fish, steamed vegetables, she will very rarely deviate from that."

Kid comment

Chris Pratt finally reacts to all the backlash over his infamous 'healthy' kid comment

Chris Pratt admits he "cried" after the Internet turned on him over comments made last year about his "healthy" daughter. 

Last November, the "Guardians of the Galaxy" star took to Instagram to gush about his wife, Katherine Schwarzenegger. In chatting with Men's Health, he recalled, "I said something [on Instagram], like, 'Find someone who looks at you the way my wife looks at me.' And then I gave her some s*** in the thing and said, 'But I love you. I'm so thankful for my wife — she gave me a beautiful, healthy daughter.'"

Social media users unleashed, as many felt that Chris ignored the fact that he has a son, Jack, with ex-wife Anna Faris (Jack was born premature). Many of those people assumed the actor's message was also a dig at Anna. 

Of the criticism, Chris said, "That is [messed] up. My son's gonna read that one day. He's 9. And it's etched in digital stone. It really f***** bothered me, dude. I cried about it."

Chris now shares daughters Layla, 1, and Eloise, 1 month, with Katherine.

The "Jurassic World" star said he was able to move past the controversy because Twitter backlash is not "real." But, he says, Jack "doesn't know that yet."

After Jack was born in 2012, the little one spent seven weeks in the NICU. 

In a May 2021 interview with People magazine, Anna, who split with Chris in 2017, said, "The first years were filled with doctor's appointments, five surgeries, physical therapy, a lot of laughter. Jack was and is the most adorable cutest thing I could ever have imagined."

Book deal

Tiger Woods' mistress reportedly shopping tell-all book, will delve deeper into relationship

Tiger Woods' infamous mistress isn't done talking.

Rachel Uchitel is reportedly shopping a tell-all book that will focus on her entanglements with the golfer and "Bones" actor David Boreanaz, as well as her life leading up to those.

"Everyone thinks they know her story, but they really don't," a source told Page Six.

Much of Rachel's story — particularly her affair with the world's former No. 1 golfer — has been well-documented over the years, but the book will be more encompassing of her life and will detail her father's death from a drug overdose and her fiancé perishing in the 9/11 attacks. After The New York Post published a photo of her crying after the Twin Towers fell, she was known as "New York's Tragic Face" — this, of course, was all prior to her being linked to Tiger. 

Over the years, Rachel has also been open about her own addiction issues.

After more than a decade of silence, Rachel made her first public comments about the affair in January 2021 for HBO's "Tiger" documentary. 

"I have stayed quiet about this story, but at this point, I have nothing left to lose. My name hasn't lost the stigma at all," she said in the two-part documentary.

The golf legend famously crashed his car in 2009 after his then-wife, Elin Nordegren, found out that he'd been having a long-running affair with Rachel, a former nightclub hostess in New York City and Las Vegas.

Rachel is working with agent David Vigliano to shop the book. 

Money matters

Chadwick Boseman's estate will be evenly split between his widow and his parents, according to a new report. 

The "Black Panther" star left behind $2.3 million when he passed unexpectedly in 2020. Black Enterprise says Taylor Simone Ledward, 31, and her in-laws, Leroy and Carolyn, will each get $1.15 million from the estate.

Taylor, who has been with Chadwick since 2016, has been in charge of settling the estate, and she reportedly wanted it split evenly. 

Chadwick, who passed at the age of 43 after a private battle with progressing colon cancer, did not have a will. Prior to paying various funeral and legal fees, the estate was estimated to be worth nearly $3.9 million.

Chadwick and Taylor, 31, secretly married about a year prior to his death. The widow accepted her late husband's Golden Globe award in 2021. 

"He would thank God. He would thank his parents. He would thank his ancestors for their guidance and their sacrifices," she said. "He would say something beautiful, something inspiring, something that would amplify that little voice inside of all of us that tells you, 'You can,' that tells you to keep going, that calls you back to what you are meant to be doing at this moment in history."

Healthy reveal

Zachary Levi reveals he was sent to psych ward after mental breakdown

After struggling with mental health and having suicidal thoughts, Zachary Levi revealed he once had a "complete mental breakdown" that sent him to a psychiatric ward five years ago.

The actor candidly spoke about his three-week stay at the ward, telling Elizabeth Vargas on her "Heart of the Matter" podcast, "I've struggled with this stuff most of my life. I didn't realize that I was struggling with these things until I was 37, about five years ago, and I had a complete mental breakdown."

The "Shazam!" star, 41, said he had an imperfect upbringing, claiming there was vitriol" and "lots of yelling" in his household. He turned to "sex or drugs or booze" to distract himself. 

"The irony is that booze can give you this temporary relief, but then the next day amplifies that anxiety tenfold," he said in the interview obtained by the Hollywood Reporter. "So, then you're running back to get more, and it just becomes this vicious cycle."

Over time, his anxiety got worse, have he even have panic attacks over something as simple as where to eat.

"I'm sitting in my truck, and vividly, I remember I was holding onto the wheel, and I was just shaking back and forth, that like almost trying to shake myself out of what was going on, and I'm just weeping. I'm just crying. I'm like, 'God, help me,'" he recalled.

After having suicidal thoughts, he went to the emergency room, which led to the psych ward.

"The lies are whispering into my ear, and the failure that I felt that I was enough to be like, 'Zach, it doesn't feel like you're going to make it out of this,'" he said.

The psychiatric ward saved his life. 

"I think one of the most important things, at least for me, is taking my thoughts captive," he said. "Our minds are so powerful, but they are so easily, so easily hijacked if we don't really go, 'Oh, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. I'm doing it again. I'm starting to speak ill of myself again. I'm starting to be harsh or critical of myself. I'm starting to judge where I'm at in my life.'"
