Marriage rumors encircled the 29-year-old "Arrested Development" star over weekend after he and his longtime girlfriend — known only as "Nadine" — were spotted wearing wedding bands in New York City.

The Daily Mail published grainy images that show the rings on their fingers. Other images show the couple embracing in the streets of Brooklyn.

According to reports, Michael and Nadine have been wearing the rings since January, but little else is known.

The "Superbad" star is hugely protective of his private life, rarely speaking about it. In fact, it's not known how long he and Nadine have been together, but he did write a song called "Oh Nadine (You Were In My Dream)" in 2014.

That same year, he told David Letterman that he had a "new girlfriend" who was German.

"She's fantastic," Michael said at the time.

Splitsville?

Ronnie Ortiz-Magro's fianceé hints at a split in social media post

There's growing speculation that Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and fiancée Saffire Matos have split up after a new social media image showed her without her engagement ring.

In a recent photo posted to her Instagram Story, the cosmetologist held up her golden doodle puppy for a selfie. The fact that she was sans ring raised eyebrows, but her caption seemed more telling. 

"Me and my one and only love," she captioned the photo. The picture is no longer available, but The Sun shared a screengrab on Jan. 24.

Further fueling the breakup rumors, Ronnie and Saffire are both fiercely active on social media, yet he last appeared on her Instagram in October 2021, whereas she was most recently on his page in early December 2021.

Saffire and "The Jersey Shore" star got engaged last June during a romantic beach picnic in Los Angeles.

The couple's romance hasn't exactly been a fairytale. In April 2021, the reality TV star was arrested after Saffire called 911 during an argument that turned physical. Once officers arrived, they noticed "visible marks on Saffire's body" and determined that Ronnie was the aggressor, a report said. However, she would go on to downplay the issue and the duo clearly worked through their differences (as evidenced by the engagement.)

Last fall, Ronnie caught a huge break in court when a judge not to toss him in jail. Ironically, the judge put a three-year protective order in place so he couldn't harass or intimidate Saffire.

The arrest could have easily spelled doom for Ronnie, as he is currently on probation for a different domestic violence incident in L.A. involving his ex Jen Harley, with whom he shares a 3-year-old daughter. Ronnie struck a plea deal in that 2019 case, which requires him to keep his nose clean through 2023.

Daddy dearest

Cooper Hefner defends late father amid wave of 'salacious' accusations

Cooper Hefner is making a preemptive strike to stick up for his famous father.

On Jan. 24, A&E will debut the docuseries, "Secrets of Playboy," which is expected to cast a very negative light on late Playboy founder Hugh Hefner and the inner workings of the Playboy Mansion.

Previews already show several of Hugh's former girlfriends, Playmates and members of the Mansion staff alleging that drugs, coercion and secret sexual recordings were a part of life in the famed home.

Just 24 hours before the first episode, Cooper, who Hugh shares with ex-wife Kimberley Conrad, tweeted, "Some may not approve of the life my Dad chose, but my father was not a liar. However unconventional, he was sincere in his approach and lived honestly. He was generous in nature and cared deeply for people."

Cooper, the former Chief Creative Officer at Playboy Enterprises, added, "These salacious stories are a case study of regret becoming revenge."

One of the voices in the series is Holly Madison, who dated the magazine magnate from 2001 to 2008. 

"The reason I think the mansion was very cult-like looking back on it is because we were all kind of gaslit and expected to think of Hef as like this really good guy," she says in the series, according to E! News. "And you started to feel like, 'Oh, he's not what they say in the media, he's just a nice man.'"

Holly, who's had issues with her ex over the years, believes she developed Stockholm Syndrome during those years living under the Playboy Mansion roof.

"I felt like I was in this cycle of gross things, and I didn't know what to do," she said. 

A wife's farewell

Meat Loaf's widow speaks out over 'gut-wrenching' grief

The entertainment world reacted with sadness when it lost rock legend Meat Loaf last week. The rocker's widow's heartache, however, is "beyond words."

In a statement to People magazine, Deborah Gillespie said, "The grief I feel over the loss of my husband is gut-wrenching. I was lying close to Michael when he took his last breath, and my sadness is beyond words."

Deborah always referred to the "I'd Do Anything for Love" singer by his given name, Michael Aday. 

"I didn't see him as 'Meat.' I feel much gratitude for the outpouring of love I have received from around the world," she said. "He meant so much to so many people, and it gave me joy to be able to share him with the world. As his wife, I also want everyone to know how much he meant to me as a husband."

Deborah further described their love story. 

"For me, it was always about him. From the day we met, he was my world and I loved him. There wasn't a day that went by that we didn't tell the other how much we loved them. Not a day that we didn't hug each other," she continued. "Some of my fondest memories will always be about how we so often laughed, and how we brought out the silliness and playfulness in each other. Michael was a hugger–such a physically affectionate and kind man, and I'm grateful that he brought out those traits in me."

While Meat Loaf's official cause of death isn't known, TMZ reported that the "Two Out of Three Ain't Bad" singer died of COVID-19 complications. He was 74.

Deborah, who married Meat Loaf in 2007, described their life together as an "adventure."

"I waited until later in life to get married because I was waiting for the right man," she said. "And oh boy, was he ever the right man for me! I realize how blessed I am to have shared my life with such an incredible person. He didn't hesitate to let me know how much I was appreciated, and often sweetly told me, 'You're a good wife.' I will miss hearing that."

Deborah added, "Our life together was an adventure. He was my best friend, my confidant, my lover and I miss him terribly already. As much as my heart is in pain right now, my heart is also so full of the love and glory we shared together. I will love you forever, Michael."

'Uncanny'

Elle Fanning wears forehead prosthetic to transform into convict Michelle Carter: Pics

Elle Fanning is the spitting image of Michelle Carter in the upcoming series "The Girl From Plainville," which chronicles the sensational trial of the Massachusetts woman convicted of pressuring her boyfriend to take his own life.

While much of the crew behind the series marveled at how similar Elle and the famous convict look, the actress still had to alter her appearance, which included using a forehead prosthetic. Showrunner Patrick Macmanus told Entertainment Weekly that it was important to not sensationalize the story and be as genuine as possible. 

In the end, Patrick said Elle used a wig, some light makeup, and a forehead prosthetic to move the actress' hairline back. The idea was to avoid anything from "distracting" from the real story.

Elle posted stills from the show on her Instagram, which prompted January Jones to comment how "uncanny" she looks to Michelle, who was eventually convicted of involuntary manslaughter.

Michelle's court case made headlines in 2017 as she was accused of convincing her boyfriend Conrad Roy III via text to take his own life three years earlier. Throughout the course of the trial, everything was scrutinized, including her appearance.

"The physicality that Elle found in playing Michelle — she studied all of the courtroom tapes, she studied the documentary [HBO's 'I Love You, Now Die'] — she really threw herself into making sure that the movement and the way she spoke was authentic, as well. So I think that in tandem with the change physically really brings it all together," co-showrunner Liz Hannah said.

'Skins' star Kathryn Prescott shares first post since being hit by cement truck

For the first time since her near-death experience in the middle of a New York City street, "Skins" star Kathryn Prescott is speaking out.

On Jan. 20, the actress posted a simple photo of a rock — a rock given to her after she was hit by a cement truck while crossing a New York City street last September. 

"An anonymous woman, whose face I never saw, put this rock into my hand as I was being lifted onto a stretcher. She whispered into my ear that it was for good luck," the 30-year-old wrote on Instagram. "When I finally got to the operating room and was being prepped for my first surgery, one of the assistants asked me what was in my fist. I realized I had been holding onto it since then without realizing. Thank you to that woman (if anyone knows who she is, please tell me.)"

Kathryn's incident was made public after United Kingdom-based twin sister, Megan Prescott, made a plea to get to New York. 

"I received the most terrifying phone call I've ever received in my life on Tuesday evening," Megan wrote on her Instagram last fall. "My twin sister Kathryn was hit by a cement truck while crossing a road in New York on the 7th September."

"After fighting through complex surgery some of Kathryn's injuries include: broken pelvis in two places, both of her legs, her foot and her left hand," Megan continued. "She is incredibly lucky to be alive. She narrowly avoided paralysis. The doctors are hopeful that she will make a full recovery but this will only be possible with the correct care right now."

Megan was desperate to get to the United States to be by her sister's side, and applied for an exemption from the COVID travel restrictions. Megan, though, was denied. 

"She is alone in New York with no family members. I need help getting to New York to support her recovery," Megan explained. "I will have to help her until she can start to walk again. I need to be there to help her with literally everything as she will be able to do incredibly little by herself. She will be in rehab for a very long time and will need 24/hr care even after she leaves the hospital."

Without being flippant, Megan is Kathryn's rock… and Megan eventually made it to New York.

"Thank you to my sister for moving heaven and earth to get to me during a global pandemic and travel ban. Thank you to all of my friends for being there, without hesitation, and for sending your mums, friends and sisters when you couldn't," the "A Dog's Journey" actress said. "Thank you to my hospital room mate for being who you are and for making me laugh, even when there wasn't much to laugh about. Thank you to everyone who has reached out and helped in every and any way they could. From the bottom of my heart, thank you."

Friends forever

John Mayer paid for private jet to transport Bob Saget's body to L.A.

John Mayer made sure his late pal got home in style.

A new report by Showbiz 411 says the singer footed the bill for a private plane to transport Bob Saget's body from Florida to California.

The "Full House" actor was found dead in an Orlando hotel room on Jan. 9 following a comedy show in Jacksonville. 

John's generosity didn't end with the airplane either. Last week, he and comedian Jeff Ross went on Instagram Live as they picked up Bob's car from Los Angeles International Airport. The duo reminisced about their pal during the drive. 

"I've never known a human being on this Earth who could give that much love," John said, "individually and completely, to that many people in a way that made each person feel like he was a main character in their life and they were a main character in his life."

After the gesture, Bob's wife, Kelly Rizzo, publicly thanked John and Jeff.

"No words for how much this meant to me," she said on her Instagram Story. "These two men have been holding me up and taking care of me (along with many other incredible people who loved my husband more than anything)."

John, who served as a pallbearer at the comedian's funeral, also helped design a hoodie with Bob's name on it. Proceeds from the sale of the clothing will go to the Scleroderma Research Foundation, which Bob worked tirelessly for. 

Over... again

Pamela Anderson reportedly divorcing for fifth time

Pamela Anderson is getting divorced… again.

Rolling Stone reported on Jan. 20 that the former "Baywatch" babe and Dan Hayhurst are splitting after a year of marriage.

A source close to the couple told the music publication that the actress is filing for divorce in her native Canada, where she and Dan had been living. 

"Pamela loves as authentically as she lives," said the source, who dubbed the brief union a "pandemic whirlwind" that petered out.

Pam and Dan tied the knot at her Vancouver Island home on Christmas Eve in 2020.

"I'm exactly where I need to be — in the arms of a man who truly loves me," she told DailyMailTV a month after they exchanged vows.

"I am in love. We were married Christmas Eve with both our families' blessing, everyone we know is happy for us," Pam said. "I was married on the property I bought from my grandparents 25 years ago, this is where my parents were married and they are still together. I feel like I've come full circle."

During a joint interview (from their bed!) with British talk show "Loose Women," she added, "This is like the magic place to live, I guess. He was working here, and I got stuck here during COVID, and we stuck together, and we're still stuck together."

"He's the kind of guy I probably would have met if I would have stayed home and not went around the world and got crazy," she added. "I mean, I came home in one piece. It's nice to be with, like, a real man who can actually change a light bulb."

Less than a year before she married Dan, Pam reportedly married businessman Jon Peters. They split after just 12 days, and she later claimed they were never legally married.

She was previously married to Mötley Crüe rocker Tommy Lee from 1995 to 1998. She married Kid Rock in 2006. And she married producer Rick Solomon twice: first in 2007 and then in late 2013 or early 2014. (Their first union was annulled.)

Breaking the law

'Twilight' director was nervous over Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart's 'illegal' kiss

"Twilight" director Catherine Hardwick admits there might have been too much chemistry between Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart in the 2008 film…. so much so that it was "illegal."

While on The Big Hit Show podcast, Catherine recalled the two young actors' steamy audition. At the time, Robert was 21, and Kristen was 17.

"I could tell they had a lot of chemistry, and I'm like, 'Oh my God.' I thought, Kristen was 17. I don't want to get in some illegal things," she said, noting the legal age of consent in California is 18 years old.

During the audition, which took place in California, the passion was so intense that the British actor fell off the bed while he and Kristen kissed. 

"So I remember I told Rob, 'By the way, Kristen is 17. In our country, it's illegal to have a sexual…' And he's like, 'Oh, OK, whatever,'" she said.

Promotional

Robert and Kristen ended up falling in love and were in a relationship for four years. Catherine, of course, saw the romance in its infancy, as the duo's audition took place at her house. 

"Rob and Kristen did the audition right here on the bed. They did the kissing scene and he fell off and landed right there on this floor," she said on the podcast. 

"He walked in and he had his hair was dyed black for some play, with these wacky bangs. He was a bit out of shape," she said of RPatz. "His shirt was just all messy, and I'm like, 'Oh, OK. OK, let's see how this goes.'"

Based on the box office returns, it clearly went well.

"Rob and Kristen auditioned on my bed, the kissing scene, Rob was so into it he fell off the bed. I'm like, 'Dude, calm down.' And I'm in there filming with my little video camera, whatever," Catherine said. "And at the end [of the audition] Kristen was like, 'It has to be Rob.'"

Bad memories

Former co-star says Jessica Alba was 'horrible' to work with

Jensen Ackles worked with Jessica Alba more than 20 years ago on James Cameron's 2000 sci-fi show "Dark Angel." The experience isn't one he remembers fondly.

On Michael Rosenbaum's "Inside of You" podcast, the former "Supernatural" star was asked if it was "cool to work with" Jessica back then. 

"No, she was horrible," he said, quickly noting that he was not joking. "I've told this to her face."

Pressed on the details of his less-than-stellar memories, Jensen said, "I love Jess, which kind of contradicts what I just said. She was under an immense amount of pressure on that show."

Jensen noted that the Honest Company founder was young and in a tumultuous relationship with co-star Michael Weatherly at the time, which caused "some undue stress on set."

"I was the new fresh face on the set," he said. "I was the new kid on the block and I got picked on by the lead… Like the worst kind of bickering a brother and sister could do. She had it out for me. It wasn't that she didn't like me. She was like, 'Oh here's the pretty boy the network brought in for more window dressing because that's what we need.'"

The bickering even happened in front of the crew, so Jensen decided to throw it back at her, which he said the crew "loved."

"It did build some mutual respect" between them, he said. "We bickered, we bickered like brother and sister."

The two, though, had touching moments, including the time Jensen's grandfather passed away during filming. 

"She literally walked into my trailer and just held me for half an hour," he said. "So it was that kind of relationship. If she walked in, it would be all hugs, but she didn't make it easy on me."
