Rob talks Demi

Rob Lowe reacts to former co-star and lover Demi Moore's revelations in new book

In her bombshell-filled new memoir, "Inside Out," Demi Moore opens up — and doesn't hold back — about everything from childhood trauma to addiction issues to the ups and downs of her love life and three marriages.

One of the famous men she's written about, her "About Last Night" and "St. Elmo's Fire" co-star Rob Lowe, has now spoken out about Demi's revelations.

In her book, Demi wrote that she "vaguely" recalled having "one ill-advised late night together" with Rob before she soon moved on to future ex-fiancé Emilio Estevez.

Rob has previously declined to go into detail about what happened between them during their days as members of Hollywood's famed Brat Pack, explaining on "The View" back in March 2019 that "A gentleman never kisses and tells!"

But during a new visit to the daytime talk show on Sept. 30, Rob was happy to talk about Demi when asked about her addiction and sobriety journey, praising her for influencing him decades ago.

Demi revealed in her book that she was forced into rehab by producers before filming started on 1985's "St. Elmo's Fire" because she had a cocaine problem — she wrote that she was using an eighth of an ounce of the drug every two days — and they wanted her to get clean. She went to treatment for 15 days then had a counselor with her while shooting, TooFab reports.

"She was the first person I ever knew who got sober. She was a huge inspiration to me," Rob said on "The View." "It was the '80s, we were all doing our thing. I just remember thinking, 'Whoa, if that girl can get sober, anybody can.'"

He went to rehab in 1990 in the wake of a shocking sex tape scandal. "I've been sober 29 years, so everybody has that person in their life where they go, 'Oh, that's a great example,'" Rob said.

He went on to praise the experience. "I loved rehab. I loved it. Loved it," he explained, "because I knew I needed answers that I didn't have. I learned them there. I was always a pleasure to have in class anyway. It was like going to school to learn how to live your life with tools that nobody ever taught me."

One thing he learned, for example, was to "Never compare your insides to someone else's insides," he said on "The View." "I spent a lot of time thinking should I be doing this, that person's doing that. And also, it changed my life. I needed experts. It was great, it was fantastic."

Divorce chatter

Tori Spelling wants divorce, feels 'trapped' in marriage: Report

Tori Spelling is looking for a way out of her marriage, a new report claims, which all but echoes speculation that's been mounting for weeks.

The "Beverly Hills 90210" star  "wants a divorce" from Dean McDermott, "but she feels trapped right now," a source told Us Weekly

Although the couple's marriage has been rocky for a while — something Tori has confirmed — the relationship hit another snag after the duo recently had a fight. After that, Dean reportedly "went missing for two days," the report claims. Naturally, that sparked another fight.

When Dean returned after being MIA, he supposedly told the actress he planned to sue her for alimony and child support. Tori, though, reminded him they have a prenuptial agreement, which would keep her money in her pocket should they split. 

But, during all this, Tori learned that her husband of 15 years could still sue her for child support if they split," and "she went ballistic."

"Money is an issue and it's always been an issue," the source maintained.

On Oct. 18, the "Messyness" host was photographed outside an attorney's office in Los Angeles carrying a notepad. Zoomed in photos showed the words "custody," "support" and "assets" written on the paper, which all but detailed what was on the agenda with the lawyer. Further, paparazzi images published by Page Six showed Tori having an animated conversation on her cell phone. The report described Tori as "angrily shouting" into the phone. 

Tori is "miserable" in her marriage, Us' source said, but she stays "for the kids."

Recently Tori and Dean took their five children — Liam, 14, Stella, 13, Hattie, 9, Finn, 9, and Beau, 4 — to Disneyland.  The kids "have no idea what's going on," the insider claimed. Either was wearing their wedding bands. But, in an episode of the "Feminine Warrior" podcast, Dean spoke of the missing rings and, to an extent, the split speculation

"It's just like, 'OK, if that's what you want to think, then think it,'" he said, adding that the media makes it sound like "we're divorced because they got a picture of Tori without her ring at the farmers market." 

In explaining why Tori was seen without her ring at the time, he insisted, "She took it off because she washed her hands and forgot to put it back on."

That, of course, didn't explain why his ring had been missing for some time. Dean, though, claimed he lost his band and decided not to replace it because "everybody's in a titter" over its absence. "So I'm like, 'Forget it, I'm not going to replace it. Just let them think it,'" he said. 

Great gift

The incredible gift Keanu Reeves gave his stuntmen for 'John Wicks'

Keanu Reeves is thanking the men who make him look good.

It appears that the actor gifted his "John Wick" stuntmen with new Rolexes as a thank you for their work on the new film. According to reports, Keanu presented four men with brand-new 2020 Submariners after filming wrapped in Paris for "John Wick 4." Oh yeah, the watches seem to be personalized, too.

One of the stunt men on the film, Jeremy Marinas, posted a photo of his watch. The watches are all engraved with a message. Jeremy's watch, for instance, read "The John Wick Five. Jeremy, Thank You. Keanu JW4. 2021." The Rolex's were engraved with an individual number, too. 

"Best wrap gift ever," the stuntman captioned a photo of the watch. There's also an image of the four stuntmen and the actor wearing their new watches.

That particular Rolex retails for about $10,000 each. 

Bachelor split

'The Bachelorette' couple splits 2 months after TV engagement

Consider the bloom off the rose.

On Oct. 25 — just more than two months after their on-camera engagement on the finale of "The Bachelorette" — Katie Thurston and Blake Moynes announced in a joint statement that they've called it quits.

"It is with mutual love and respect that we have decided to go our separate ways. We are so grateful for the moments we shared together and the entire journey that has unfolded this year, but we ultimately have concluded that we are not compatible as life partners, and it is the most caring choice for both of us to move forward independently," they each wrote on Instagram. "We ask for kindness and privacy as we both navigate this transition. Both of us will forever want the best for one another and ask you to please support us in our decision."

Split speculation had been mounting: The twosome had not been seen together in more than a month, and Katie had taken to hiding her ring finger in various social media snaps.

Katie and Blake, who starred on season 17 of "The Bachelorette," got engaged on the season finale, which aired on Aug. 9. They later gushed about their romance. 

"I couldn't ask for a better partner. You are kind, patient, understanding, and your advocacy for the planet and animals is remarkable," Katie wrote on Instagram in honor of Blake's birthday in August. "I'm so lucky to call you my fiancé. My best friend. My confidant. We are just two weirdos laughing our way through life together. Cheers to the upcoming adventures!" 

In his own post, Blake wrote, "You're a rock. My rock. A mature, nurturing, supportive & loving partner who continues to impress me everyday. We have an adventure called life ahead of us and I hope you know I'll do everything I can to help, push and encourage you to make the most of every little bit of it!"

Another one bites the dust.

Cancel experience

Anne Heche says she was 'patient zero in cancel culture' after Ellen romance

It seems that a Hollywood celebrity gets "canceled" every month these days, but Anne Heche feels like she was unfortunately way ahead of that trend. 

Anne has previously spoken about how her highly-public relationship with Ellen DeGeneres from 1997 to 2000 essentially got her blacklisted from Hollywood for a while. In a new interview with Page Six, she calls herself "patient zero in cancel culture."

"This wasn't a long-term love affair," Anne said of the romance. "This was a moment in my life when I was given the glory of being able to stand up for what I believe in and have since I was a kid."

Anne's "cancel culture" moment came in 1997 when she invited Ellen to the premiere of her film "Volcano." The same-sex couple's arrival was highly scrutinized. Now, nearly 25 years later, Anne said Hollywood wasn't ready for an out-and-proud same sex couple.

"I didn't do a studio picture for ten years," she said. "I was fired from a $10 million picture deal and did not see the light of day in a studio picture."

In the chat, Anne revealed that she was in talks to star opposite Harrison Ford in "Six Days, Seven Nights." However, after the premiere, the studio implied that she was no longer being considered for the part. As this was happening, Harrison called her. 

"He said, 'Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn who you're sleeping with. We have a romantic comedy to make. Let's make it the best one that's ever happened,'" Anne remembered. "That is why Harrison Ford is my hero. To stand behind me at such a time when the force of what I was standing up for could have been toppled."

All these years later, Anne feels that she helped set the wheels in motion for how society now views sexuality. 

"Those repercussions that happened, are to me what has created a part of the change," she said. "I'm a part of it. It is a badge of honor."

On the Market

Erika Jayne is dating again amid legal troubles

Erika Jayne is putting herself on the market again. 

The "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star is dating again: She's been on a "handful" of dates in Los Angeles, TMZ reported on Oct. 25.

The realty TV star isn't using dating apps, though. Instead, she's letting trusted friends set her up on dates with single guys in L.A. So far, she's been out with a few guys in the entertainment industry and a few guys in other fields.

"Erika is seeing if there's a spark with a mix of men," TMZ reports. (The webloid also implies that Erika is only dating guys who live in the L.A. area.)

This is essentially uncharted water for the "Pretty Mess" singer, who last dated in the '90s before marrying Tom Girardi.

Not only has Erika's love life been flipped upside down, but so have her finances. 

In November 2020, Erika filed to divorce Tom. Weeks later, he was accused of embezzling money from the law firm where he worked. (Some of those funds were intended for families of those who died in the 2018 Lion Air Flight 610 crash in Indonesia.) 

The former top-notch lawyer was later sued by his business partners, resulting in a chapter 7 bankruptcy petition. The partners claim Tom used money he owed them for "personal gain" and to fund Erika's lavish lifestyle. Because of this, Erika's finances have been questioned as she allegedly refused to hand over her own bank records. There have also been accusations that the couple's divorce was a sham intended to keep money from those seeking to collect on debts owed by Tom. It's also alleged that Erika received more than $20 million from Tom's law firm.

Last month, Tom appeared to implicate Erika in his legal mess. On Sept. 22, Tom was leaving lunch in Los Angeles when a paparazzi cameraman asked him the burning question: Did Erika know anything? 

"I think she does," Tom stated as two friends tried to squash the impromptu and quick interview.

MediaPunch/REX/Shutterstock

Erika, though, has maintained her innocence, claiming Tom controlled her finances during their marriage. 

"I gave every paycheck to my husband," she told Andy Cohen during the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" season 11 reunion last week, adding, "I've handed every paycheck I've ever made over."

The New York Times reports that Erika makes about $600,000 a season from "Real Housewives."

Details emerging

Alec Baldwin accidental shooting: Latest details from 'Rust' director

Joel Souza, the director of "Rust," said cast and crew of the in-production Western film had been told that a gun being used by Alec Baldwin did not contain any live rounds, an affidavit reveals.

The New York Times obtained the affidavit, which also implies that necessary precautions weren't taken by on-set firearm safety experts before Alec — who was rehearsing a scene that involved cross drawing and pointing a firearm at the camera — fatally shot cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.

Joel, who was also injured during the Oct. 21 incident, spoke to investigators, indicating that everyone on set believed Alec was holding a "cold gun" — one that doesn't contain a live round — before the accidental shooting. 

In the most detailed account yet of what happened on the New Mexico set that day, Joel told investigators that prop guns were typically checked by the film's armorer, Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, and then checked again by Dave Halls, the assistant director, who would then hand them to the actors. There is almost always a precise sequence when handling guns on film sets, industry experts said, but an unnamed "Rust" producer alleged the handling sequence was eschewed as both Hannah and Dave handed guns to actors.

The affidavit reveals that the assistant director grabbed the revolver from a tray that had been set up by Hannah. Dave then handed the gun to Alec and shouted, "cold gun." After that, Alec started explaining how he was going to draw the gun. As he pulled it out from the holster, the firearm discharged, a cameraman told investigators, adding that the actor was "very careful" with the firearm. Still, tragedy struck.

"Joel stated there should never be live rounds whatsoever, near or around the scene," Santa Fe County Sheriff Detective Joel Cano writes in the affidavit.

Joel said the fatal incident occurred after the cast and crew returned from a lunch break and he was "not sure" if the firearms had been checked for live rounds as they prepared for the scene. Alec was simply rehearsing when Joel heard something that "sounded like a whip and then loud pop." He then looked at Halyna, who grabbed her midsection and stumbled backwards. She told crew members she couldn't feel her legs. (He also noticed he was bleeding from the shoulder.)

Halyna was later pronounced dead at the University of New Mexico Hospital in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The detective outlines in the affidavit that there had been a labor dispute between producers and crew members before the incident. On the day of the incident, Joel had been dealing with delays after roughly six members of the camera crew quit due to late pay and safety conditions, the affidavit says. Joel and producers scrambled and got a new crew together. Joel, though, told the detective that "everyone was getting along" and that there had been "no altercations" to his knowledge.

Because the crew was setting up for the scene and merely rehearsing, Joel said, the fatal incident was not filmed.

On Oct. 24, a candlelight vigil was held in Halyna's honor in Burbank, California.

Bad hair day

Social media reacts to Angelina Jolie's hair extension malfunction

Angelina Jolie's typically-flawless look was marred by a hair extension fail over the weekend, or so said social media.

Twitter users let it all fly on Oct. 25 after seeing images of the actress on the red carpet at the 16th Rome Film Festival. Angie donned a shimmering silver dress, but fans didn't seem to notice, as they couldn't take their eyes off her uneven hair.

Photos showed the "Maleficent" star's real brown hair and her extensions were left unblended and quite noticeable. 

"Who did Ms Jolie this dirty with those hair extensions," one person wrote. 

Another person accused Angelina's stylist of being "drunk."

"How do you let Angelina Jolie walk a red carpet with her hair extensions looking like this, somebody getting fired," another tweeted, as others encouraged the actress to give the stylist their walking papers. 

One person joked that something nefarious was at play, invoking Jennifer Aniston's name.

"Whoever did Angelina's hair extensions must be a friend of Jennifer's," one person commented, referring to the supposed feud the women have, which is tied to their marriages to Brad Pitt.

Another commented hilariously that Angie's hair consumed her daily life.

"Have been thinking about Angelina Jolie's hair extensions all day," they said. 

Just call it another social media blow out.

All the feels

How Joe Giudice really feels about Teresa Giudice's engagement

Joe Giudice seems to be surprised that his ex-wife, Teresa Giudice, is already heading down the aisle again. 

On Oct. 19, the "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star said "yes" after her boyfriend of a year, Luis "Louie" Ruelas, popped the question

"I'm happy for Teresa and Louie, I give them my blessings," Joe told Celebuzz on Friday, just a few days after the engagement. "I think they moved a bit quick into this romance, but I'm glad she found her true love and wish them all the best."

Luis was Teresa's first serious romance since divorcing Joe, her husband of 20 years, who was deported to Italy in October 2019 after serving 41 months in prison for fraud.

Luis proposed to the reality TV star while on a romantic vacation in Greece at the Amanzoe Resort in Porto Heli. The gorgeous proposal included sparklers, candles, roses, a violinist and a fireworks display. 

Former "RHONJ" co-star Dina Manzo and her husband, Dave Cantin, were also there for the big moment.

On Oct. 22, Luis posted several pictures from the evening. He also shared a video of the proposal, which showed him down on one knee in front of an illuminated "Marry Me" sign, all as fireworks lit up the night sky.

"I spent my entire life dreaming of you…everyday without even knowing who you were. From the moment our eyes locked and voices connected on Bay boulevard at the Jersey shore, we began our journey understanding each other's paths and learning to appreciate how we had to go thru everything we did in our lives just to get to this point," he wrote on Instagram. "These have been the most defining moments of my life and I am eternally grateful to share them with you. This is just the beginning of the rest of our lives."

He continued, "You are the LOVE of my life, my best friend, my soulmate. I promise to always love you every second of every day and always be there for you and your 4 beautiful daughters. I devote myself and my purpose in life to our goals and dreams. I am so grateful to walk this life with you not alone but together hand in hand until we are old."

On the prowl?

Scott Disick reportedly flirts with model, 23, after ex's engagement news

As his ex celebrates her engagement and her new "forever," Scott Disick is staying forever young.

The former "Flip It Like Disick" star was spotted out in West Hollywood on Thursday night, and paparazzi photos showed him getting flirtatious with 23-year-old Instagram model Elizabeth Grace Lindley.

According to DailyMail.com, the duo hung out into the early morning hours of Oct. 22, and they "left together in a chauffeured car."

Elizabeth donned a black minidress and matching knee-high boots for the occasion.

Over the years, Scott, 38, has shown that age isn't an issue when it comes to his love life. Since his years-long romance with Kourtney Kardashian ended, Scott has been linked to actress Bella Thorne, 24, and model Bella Banos, 25. He also dated 23-year-old Sofia Richie for nearly three years. His yearlong relationship with 20-year-old Amelia Gray Hamlin ended last month after he sent an ill-advised message to one of Kourtney's former lovers

The evening sighting comes just days after Kourtney, with whom Scott shares three children, got engaged to blink-182 drummer Travis Barker

"Forever," the "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star captioned a photo of the Oct. 17 proposal.

On Oct. 20, Kourtney shared more intimate images from the oceanside engagement.

After the proposal, a report claimed Scott hasn't been handling the news well

"Scott is going crazy" about Kourtney's engagement, a source told Page Six. "He's going to go off the deep end. It's really bad. It's about to get dark."

A source told People magazine that Scott never expected Kourtney and Travis to go the distance.  

"Scott hasn't really wanted to deal with Travis and Kourtney because he didn't feel like he'd have to," the insider explained. "At first, it seemed like it was just a casual relationship to him, nothing serious. So he pretty much put that on mute … thinking that eventually, they'd break up." 

The source claims Scott is "being forced to deal" with the reality that Kourtney wants a future with the drummer, "which is uncomfortable" for Scott. 

"If he's going to co-parent with Kourtney, which he has been, he has to process this and make his peace with it," said the source, adding that Scott is "distancing himself from the family" while taking "time to process this and deal with it on his own, without them."
