'Til death do us part

Rocker Alice Cooper reveals death pact with wife of 43 years

To say that rock star Alice Cooper is devoted to his wife would be an understatement.

The Godfather of Shock Rock, 71, has revealed to Britain's Mirror that he and his wife of more than four decades, Sheryl Goddard, 61, are so in love with one another and so unwilling to be parted that they've entered into a death pact.

"We've made a pact — there is no way of surviving without each other," he said. "I couldn't live without her. We always said there will never be a time when one of us will be mourning the other. Whenever it does happen, we are going to go together."

The "School's Out" singer, who spoke to the Mirror to promote some upcoming tour dates in Britain as well as new music with his supergroup the Hollywood Vampires, gushed about his love in the interview. "I've been married 43 years to the greatest girl in the world. We have never cheated on each other," he said of his dancer wife, whom he met when she auditioned to join his band's stage show in 1975. (Sheryl reportedly filed for divorce in 1983 when Alice's drinking issues got out of control, but they reconciled when he got sober.)

"She dances better now than she did in 1975. You would think people would want to get away from the wives but she is my best friend," he added. "And there is no way of surviving without each other."

Hopefully, their pact won't be tested anytime soon. The "No More Mr. Nice Guy" singer has longevity in his family — his beloved mother, Ella Mae Furnier, is 96. "She's indestructible. It must be in the genes," Alice told the Mirror.


"I'm 71 and weigh the same I did when I was 30. I've got that body that doesn't get exhausted. I don't smoke. I haven't had a drink for 37 years. I'm the only one in the band that doesn't get sick. I cut out sugar and I drink a lot of Diet Cokes. Maybe they are keeping me well," he quipped. "And the two-hour stage show is your aerobic [activity]."

He also hasn't done cocaine since the '70s, he added. "I lived [in Los Angeles] during the great cocaine blizzard. I didn't know one person that didn't do cocaine. It was a period of your life that you got through and then never touched it again," he said.

Alice (real name: Vincent Damon Furnier) also stays young by chasing after his 4-year-old grandkids when he's not on the road. The boys, Riot and Falcon, belong to Alice and Sheryl's son, Dash, and his, wife Morgan. (Alice and Sheryl are also parents to daughters Calico Cooper and Sonora Rose).

The rock star said his grandsons understand that his onstage persona is very different from how he is at home. "I have twin grandsons," he explained. "They see Alice Cooper the character and they know it's the character I play. They say, 'You play a monster, but you are not really a monster, Grandad.'"

NYC return

SJP thinks COVID-fleeing New Yorkers should 'reinvest' in city

In the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, many rich New Yorkers fled the city to retreat to more secluded places. Sarah Jessica Parker wasn't one of them, and she thinks it's time for those people to return to the city and "reinvest."


While chatting with Town & Country, SJP said she had "hard conversations with friends" about the impact the mass exodus had on small businesses in the city.

"People who are wealthy—New Yorkers who made great success for themselves in New York City—I feel that they owe it to the city to reinvest, to come home to make a city that is now unfamiliar familiar again," she said. "Your favorite deli and restaurant—those businesses can't wait for you. They can't hold on to employees until you come home. They need to feel our presence, to have our financial support to remain open, or reopen."

She added, "In order for our city to look familiar and to function as you have come to expect, you have to come home."


The "Sex and the City" star knows about operating a business in New York City amid the pandemic. Over the summer, she opened her SJP store.

"We struggled through the lockdown, but we kept all our employees on their health insurance," she said. "Our staff is back on staggered schedules."

Sarah is often personally seen helping customers at the store, too.

"We've had great days; we've had days that were not so great," she said. "To be on the floor with customers is my favorite part of the business. I'm getting shoes for them and learning all about their lives. We do virtual shopping, and for deliveries south of 54th Street, I drop shoes off to the customers myself."

Despite the pandemic, she maintains that women are still dressing up, or at least getting ready for a post-COVID glam up.

"People are still buying heels every day—especially on e-commerce," she said. 


Vanessa Hudgens linked to MLB player

Ever since splitting with longtime boyfriend Austin Butler at the beginning of the year, Vanessa Hudgens has been having a ball in her dating life.

Over the summer, the actress was briefly linked to New York Yankees stud Giancarlo Stanton. Now, though, she's being beau'd up with another baseball player. 

On Nov. 22, Vanessa was photographed cuddling with Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Cole Tucker during a date in Los Angeles. Paparazzi photos show Vanessa, 31, and Cole, 24, holding hands and embracing following a romantic dinner.

After news of the date got out, Twitter had a heyday. 

"Cole Tucker going on a date with Vanessa Hudgens is the greatest accomplishment of any Pirates player in 20 years," one Twitter user wrote.

Another said, "Every boy growing up in the early 2000s had dreams of dating Vanessa Hudgens. Cole Tucker is at that age where he was probably the same way. He's actually living it out now. GOAT."

Many made similar jokes about Cole "winning the offseason" or "hitting a home run."

Cole was drafted 24th overall in the 2014 Major League Baseball draft. One of his claims to fame is that he hit a game-winning home run in his first ever career hit. Since then, his statistics have been fairly pedestrian, which fans keyed in on in the Twitter responses.

"Cole Tucker going 0-5 but leaving the ballpark with Vanessa Hudgens," one person captioned a meme of the man laughing and getting in a car.

Vanessa seemed to give a nod to Cole on Instagram on Nov. 21 without naming him. 

"Date night," she captioned a photo while holding a pink rose.

Surprisingly, just last week Vanessa said she wasn't looking for a relationship while speaking to Entertainment Tonight. 

"I just finished another movie yesterday and, you know, it's taken very seriously and to keep everyone safe there are precautions," she said. "And at times it feels extravagant, but it's what you have to do to keep everyone on the production safe, so yeah, definitely no dating for me."

Asked what she's looking for in a man, she said, "Your girl's open. I feel like at the end of the day, it's just about having similar fundamentals and wanting the same things. Like, I am not picky, really. Like, I know what I want and I'm like, if someone comes into the picture and can give me all those things, then great, it doesn't matter if they're in the public eye or not — if anything I prefer them not to be but we'll see, we'll see."

The big chop

Alicia Silverstone's son Bear cuts his long hair short: Watch

Going, going, gone!

On Nov. 22, Alicia Silverstone shared a video of 9-year-old son Bear Jarecki having his super-long hair cut off during a visit to the hairstylist.

"Yes, It's true. Bear cut his hair!! My baby's growing up 😭💔 I miss his hair!!!!! Was it his decision? Yes. Did I cry inside as I watched him get it cut? Maybe… but did I try to stop him? Not for one second," the actress began her post.

"The reason he chose to keep it for as long as he did was because he loved it so much!!! He just wanted to try something new. Although I have a feeling he'll find a way back to his long hair again in the future," she added. "No matter what though, I will always support my sweet, caring, and precious little boy in every decision he makes. ❤️🥰."

The vegan and noted animal rights activist first gave her Instagram followers a first peak at Bear's new look on Nov. 18 when she posted a video suggesting followers adopt a turkey (instead of eating one!) for Thanksgiving. "Choose Kind This Thanksgiving & Adopt a Turkey! This Thanksgiving, I'm choosing kindness. ❤️ Bear and I had so much fun making new friends at @FarmSanctuary. Check it out! #AdoptATurkey at AdoptATurkey.org. #TheKindLife #Thanksgiving," she captioned the video, in which Bear — whose dad is Alicia's ex-husband, musician Christopher Jarecki — can be seen lookin' good with his new short hairstyle.

Back in September, the "Clueless" star took to Instagram to share a photo slideshow including an image of her son's long hair up in a messy bun along with a story about how he was bullied because of its length. "One time my son was made fun of by other kids because of his hair on a bus ride to surf camp. After he had returned and told me, I thought he would want to cut it for a haircut appointment we had already scheduled the next day, but when we showed up, he said 'please give me a trim so I can grow it to my waist.' That's my boy!" Alicia wrote.

She added, "He knows who he is. He loves his hair and chooses to have it long. Mama and Papa aren't going to stop him from being him. He's beautiful and we love his hair! We would never impose any social ideas about what hair on a boy or girl should look like. We should all try to embrace our children and who they choose to be without any judgement! Plus there are so many very handsome men who have long hair Brad Pitt… Harry Styles…. Jason Momoa… even Jesus 😉… all long hair! Just sayin.. 😂❤️ #family #love."

Family feels

How Kourtney really feels about Scott's new relationship with teen

Two weeks ago, Scott Disick was spotted on a date with 19-year-old Amelia Gray Hamlin. Since then, the romance has continued and the new couple was even photographed last week looking loved up on the beach.

While many have bristled at the coupling, particularly given their 18-year age gap, Kourtney Kardashian isn't one of them. According to TMZ, the "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star likes when Scott, 37, is dating someone because he's most grounded that way. 

"She actually thinks [the relationship] is good for him and their kids," the website says. 


Kourtney's main concern is that the romance doesn't affect Scott's parenting, and it's not, the report says. In fact, Scott is supposedly more responsible as a parent when he's dating someone, even if he's dating a teenager who is about eight years older than Scott and Kourtney's oldest child, Mason, who turns 11 next month. 

"Kourtney and Scott are on the best terms they've been on in a long time, and she sees no need to get involved in his relationships — as long as he's happy, and there's no negative effect on their children," TMZ said.

Scott and Amelia, the daughter of Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin, were first linked following an Italian dinner in Los Angeles. Over the years, the father of three has shown that age doesn't exactly matter when it comes to his love life. Since his years-long romance with Kourtney Kardashian, Scott has been linked to actress Bella Thorne, 23, model Bella Banos, 24, and model Megan Blake Irwin, 28. He also dated 22-year-old Sofia Richie for nearly three years.  

The Kardashians said Scott was a great parent during the course of his relationship with Sofia, and they see nothing changing as he begins dating Amelia.


Tyler Perry gifts Thanksgiving dinner to 5,000 Atlanta families

Thousands of cars lined up on Sunday — some for almost 24 hours — to get their hands on Thanksgiving dinner being provided by Tyler Perry.

Earlier in the week, Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta announced that it was holding a food drive giveaway on Nov. 22 to the first 5,000 vehicles. The word certainly got out, as TMZ obtained videos showing thousands of cars lined up hoping to score a turkey and all the fixings. 

The drive thru food giveaway, in which Tyler and his team gave away non-perishable food items and gift cards to needy families, was so popular that cars began arriving one full day prior, and the crush of cars only grew larger as the day and evening progressed.

Tyler and his team took precautions, as the food handoff was made curbside and all employees were wearing head-to-toe personal protective equipment. Families receiving food were also asked to wear masks and were required to stay in their vehicles.

The movie mogul is well known for his generosity. Earlier this year, as the pandemic raged, he famously paid the tab for all shoppers and grocery stores in Atlanta and New Orleans.

T-day plans

Clare Crawley and Dale Moss to celebrate Thanksgiving together

Clare Crawley and Dale Moss are stuffing it to those cheating rumors. 

Less than a month after the "Bachelorette" couple officially went public with their engagement, TMZ reports that they are planning to spend Thanksgiving with each other's families on the West Coast.

Dale, the website says, has already flown from New York to Sacramento to be with Clare. The couple will then head down to San Diego to meet with family and friends on both sides.

The holiday comes amid allegations that Dale, a model, was seen kissing another woman at a New York City bar this week. Prior to the alleged kiss, Dale had worked a Hugo Boss event with several female models, including the woman he allegedly kissed.

TMZ reports Clare is putting no stock into the cheating allegations, which Dale has flatly denied. In fact, he says that of the two women he was with, one is married and the other has a serious boyfriend. Clare even met up with Dale in South Dakota after the alleged incident — all but proving she's not concerned. 

For the time being, the couple plan to split their time between Sacramento and New York City because of their careers.

The coast-to-coast romance is as unconventional as the origins of Clare and Dale's relationship. 

For months there had been speculation that Clare left "The Bachelorette" early after falling hard for Dale. In late October, ABC confirmed the rumors. Host Chris Harrison noted that the last straw came during the Oct. 27 episode when Clare refused to give the "group date rose" to anyone on the date — largely because Dale wasn't there. 

"That wasn't a great look, I will admit," the host said. "She was on the group date, had talked about Dale ad nauseam, and these guys just wanted a chance."

Eventually, producers stepped in.

"I just wanted [the potential suitors] to have a fair shot, and you can very clearly see on that date, they're not getting that shot anymore," Chris said.


Kenny Rogers estates sues longtime friend over unauthorized tour DVD

A longtime friend of the late Kenny Rogers is being sued by the singer's estate for allegedly producing an unauthorized DVD of The Gambler's farewell tour.

Per TMZ, the estate claims that Kelly Junkermann convinced Kenny to let him film the singer's final tour. Kenny supposedly agreed, but did so under the strict condition that the footage be for personal use only. The estate now claims that Kelly ignored that agreement and tried to release a DVD called "Kenny Rogers — The Gambler's Last Deal."

In fact, the lawsuit states that Kelly consistently asked for approval to use the content he'd gathered but was consistently denied. Despite the roadblocks, Kelly pushed forward and struck a deal to distribute the footage.

The DVD, the lawsuit states, is filled with "priceless and irreplaceable audio, video, photographic and audiovisual content that were compiled over the course of Kenny Rogers' decades-long career."


Among the reasons the estate wants Kelly's DVD blocked is that it has its own DVD of the final tour and doesn't want fans to be confused. Further, it claims that Kelly's DVD isn't up to Kenny's standards.

TMZ noted that the estate blocked the release of Kelly's DVD earlier this year, but it cost nearly $300,000 in legal fees to get it done. The estate is formally suing for damages and for an injunction blocking Kelly's DVD from ever coming out.

COVID Update

Jeremih's condition improves amid COVID-19 battle, singer leaves ICU

R&B singer Jeremih, 33, is now out of intensive care as he continues to battle COVID-19 while hospitalized.


In a statement published by ET on Saturday, Nov. 21, the Chicago-based Def Jam artist's family said, "Jeremih has been transferred out of ICU. He will spend the rest of his recovery time in a regular hospital room. The true healing begins. Thank you all for your prayers and wishes."

The positive update comes just days after Jeremih's rep confirmed he was on a ventilator in the ICU after contracting the coronavirus.

News of his condition sparked widespread concern in the music world last week, as artists including 50 Cent, Chance the Rapper, Big Sean and Toni Braxton posted prayers and words of support for the rising star musician.

Jeremih's relatives, meanwhile, urged fans to exercise extreme caution with regard to the disease, which continues to see record numbers of new cases across the country. As of this weekend, more than 254,000 people in the U.S. have died from COVID-19.

"His family would like to remind the world that COVID-19 is real and not to be taken lightly," Jeremih's rep said in a statement last week.


"Also, it's important for people infected to quarantine and let their families and friends know ASAP," the statement continued.

"There's no shame in contracting COVID-19, and people that have it need to be responsible and considerate of others. Everyone diagnosed with COVID-19 is affected differently, Unfortunately for Jeremih, COVID-19 viciously attacked his body."

Multi-Generational Snuggle

Chrissy Teigen's mom and daughter comfort her after 'the hardest 4 days' of her life

Nearly two months after her devastating pregnancy loss, Chrissy Teigen is seeking solace in the arms of her mother, Vilailuck, and daughter, Luna.

Sharing a photo of a cozy, multi-generational couch snuggle on Saturday, Nov. 21, Chrissy seemed to be addressing Luna, 4, when she wrote, "one day I will tell you the recent story of the hardest 4 days of my life. for now, here's me needing my mommy," on Instagram.

Since the day her pregnancy complications began in late September, the "Cravings" author has shared her experience on social media with unflinching candor — from her initial hospitalization to the many blood transfusions she endured to the severe grief she and her husband, John Legend, faced when it became clear their unborn son, Jack, would not survive because of a partial placenta abruption when Chrissy was about 20 weeks along.

The loss of a pregnancy has traditionally been something families keep hidden, putting the burden of grief on the mother to bear alone with the expectation she won't discuss it. Instead, Chrissy used her own experience to chip away at that stigma by sharing photos of herself, John and Vilailuck as they said "goodbye" to Jack from the hospital — a brave move that sparked widespread praise.

There were also critics who questioned her motives, though. Chrissy addressed those in a lengthy Medium post about what she was going through and why she needed pictures of the goodbye-moment.

"… these photos aren't for anyone but the people who have lived this or are curious enough to wonder what something like this is like," she wrote last month on Medium. "These photos are only for the people who need them."

Chrissy's Instagram post on Saturday indicated she's still wrestling with difficult emotions from what she called "the hardest 4 days" of her life, and judging from the hundreds of supportive comments, her fans appreciated the fact that she was continuing to be real about the pain of losing a baby.

She's also been open about the process of moving forward.

As she wrote in her Medium post, "People say an experience like this creates a hole in your heart. A hole was certainly made, but it was filled with the love of something I loved so much. "

Chrissy added, "It doesn't feel empty, this space. It feels full."
