Miley Cyrus says public divorce from Liam Hemsworth "sucked"
Miley Cyrus is getting candid about her split from longtime love Liam Hemsworth. In a new interview on the "Joe Rogan Experience" podcast, Cyrus admitted that being in the public eye while divorcing Hemsworth, who she'd been with off and on since meeting on the set of "The Last Song" in 2009, was the worst part. "What really sucked about it wasn't the fact that me and someone that I loved realized that we don't love each other the way that we used to anymore," Cyrus admitted. "That's okay, I can accept that. I can't accept the villainizing and just all those stories." The couple, who married in December 2018, began divorce proceedings in August 2019. As news of their separation surfaced the singer also began a relationship with "The Hills" star Kaitlynn Carter. "It's just amazing to me that the public kind of thinks that there is no gap in time that they didn't see that could possibly be what led to this. Like, it's not, 'One day you were happy on the carpet, and the next you're making out with your friend in Italy,' what the f–k?" she said. "Well, there was a lot of time between that you didn't see." Carter and Cyrus parted ways shortly after and Cyrus has been dating Cody Simpson since. Hemsworth has also moved on and has been dating model Gabriella Brooks for nearly a year.

Chadwick Boseman's agent explains why he hid his cancer diagnosis
When Chadwick Boseman passed away on Aug. 28, 2020 from colon cancer, the world was shocked, as Boseman had never spoken publicly about his health struggles. Among those who knew about his diagnosis was his longtime agent, Michael Greene, who explained Boseman's desire for privacy with The Hollywood Reporter. "[Chadwick's mother Carolyn] always taught him not to have people fuss over him," explained Grenee. "He also felt in this business that people trip out about things, and he was a very, very private person." Boseman, who was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer in 2016, quietly struggled with the pain from his progressing cancer. In the upcoming Netflix film "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom," Greene says Boseman was "in hard-core pain." But for Boseman, being able to work with Denzel Washington, his co-star in the film, and to work with the playwright August Wilson at Netflix "was so exciting to him."

On Wednesday, Sept. 2, Alyssa Milano did a wellness check-in with her Instagram followers, asking them how they are doing and sharing her own health update. "I'm ok. I'm starting to physically feel better," she wrote. "I'm still taking an aspirin every 3 days to thin my blood, fish oil, vitamin D, C, zinc and a B complex. I still have occasional heart palpitations. I still forget my words (absolute worst part). But it's not nearly as bad as it was a few weeks ago. I feel better." Milano got COVID-19 in April and has been experiencing symptoms for months. Last month she referred to herself as a "long hauler" patient, after she shared that she was in the emergency room with a heavy chest. She has since had a CT scan of her lungs and a cardiac MRI, both which came back normal, she explained. "I get super scared sometimes, though. Not of getting sick again but of my loved ones getting sick. I don't ever want them to have this thing. It's a beast," she continued. "So I vacillate between being so grateful and so terrified. Grateful that it was me who got sick and terrified that friends or family will be sick."

Not only is IVF physically exhausting, the emotional toll is unparalleled. We were filled with hope and excitement only to be crushed."
