secret marriage

Seann William Scott's secret wife revealed…

The mystery is solved. Last Friday, news broke that "American Pie" star Seann William Scott had secretly tied the knot. Now, his bride is being revealed.

On Wednesday, Page Six reported that Seann, 42, married Los Angeles-based interior designer Olivia Korenberg. Neither Seann nor Olivia, 31, have confirmed that story, but the actor's rep did confirm to Us Weekly that he is indeed married.

The new report indicates that Olivia is the co-founder and former principal designer at TwoFold LA, a boutique design firm specializing in residential and commercial interior design, event design, styling and consultant services. However, according to the company's Instagram account, Olivia left the company recently.

"Over the course of the past near 8 years, I've had the privilege of creating memorable experiences and environments for Clients who have put their trust and faith in me," she wrote. "Its taken me to Reims, France where I designed and produced my very first wedding and has culminated here in Los Angeles completing a recent wedding for a couple I've known since high school. At 23 years old I had no idea the extent to which running a business would stretch and challenge me both professionally and personally. I am so proud of what has been accomplished in this past near decade and am excited to see where Jenn Pablo takes Twofold LA in this next phase. I am looking forward to seeing what the future holds."

Interestingly, just a few weeks before the marriage news was confirmed, Seann told Us Weekly that he was "dating somebody."

"She's a great girl," he said, adding that he is a "pretty private" person but "super happy."

Just hours after publicly coming out, Braunwyn Windham-Burke is giving her social media followers a peek into her new love life.

People magazine reported that Braunwyn's partner's name is Kris.

In publicly coming out on Dec. 2, Braunwyn, 43, became the first openly gay "Housewives" star.

"I'm finally comfortable enough to say I like women. I'm gay," she revealed during an interview with GLAAD. "I'm a member of the LGBTQ+ community. I'm a lesbian. It has taken me 42 years to say that but I am so proud of where I am right now. I'm so happy where I am. To be able to be comfortable in my own skin after so long is just so nice."

Despite her sexuality and her reveal that she currently has a girlfriend, Braunwyn plans to stay married to Sean Burke, her husband of 20 years and father of their seven children. Braunwyn notes that she and Sean sleep in separate bedrooms, and he has met Kris.

Not long after her reveal, Sean took to social media to publicly support his wife.

"I love you. I'm proud of you. And I support you. Always," he captioned a photo with Braunwyn.

While there is no romance between Braunwyn and Sean, there is love and respect.

"I love Sean. I love him dearly, he is my person, he is my family. But I'm not attracted to men and I never have been," Braunwyn said in her GLAAD interview, adding that her attraction to women "became something that I didn't want to hide anymore and I didn't want to keep secret anymore."

She added, "I want to be able to go out to dinner with whoever I want without judgment."

Outbreak

According to TMZ, Kyle Richards, Kathy Hilton and Dorit Kemsley have all tested positive for COVID-19. The positive tests come just a week after production was shut down due to a crew member's positive test.

The report claims that none of the three women have "serious symptoms" and all are recovering at home. It's believed that they are nearing the end of their COVID-19 battles.

Sources quickly added that the women contracted the virus from hanging out together and not from filming the hugely popular Bravo show.

"Housewives" filming began filming its newest season five weeks ago. Multiple reports over the past month have indicated that safety protocols such as testing and temperature checks are in place to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

Sexuality reveal

'Housewives' star Braunwyn Windham-Burke comes out as gay

"The Real Housewives of Orange County" star Braunwyn Windham-Burke has come out about her sexuality: She's gay.

The reality TV star made the reveal during an interview with GLAAD on Dec. 2. 

"I'm finally comfortable enough to say I like women. I'm gay," she announced at the beginning of the on-camera interview. "I'm a member of the LGBTQ+ community. I'm a lesbian. It has taken me 42 years to say that but I am so proud of where I am right now. I'm so happy where I am. To be able to be comfortable in my own skin after so long is just so nice."

Braunwyn said she's left some proverbial breadcrumbs over the past year, including a much-discussed make-out scene with Tamra Judge. 

"When we were getting ready for the reunion I was talking to a producer that I trust a lot, his name was James, and he said, 'How do you feel about this? Was it a drunken mistake or is this a part of who you are?' And I said, 'This is who I am,'" she said. "When I went to the reunion last year I kind of started baby-stepping into, 'This is who I am. I like women.' I was testing the waters with my friends, my cast, my family."

Despite her sexuality and her reveal that she currently has a girlfriend, Braunwyn plans to stay married to Sean Burke, her husband of 20 years and father of their seven children. Braunwyn notes that she and Sean sleep in separate bedrooms, and he has met the "Housewives" star's new love interest.

"I love Sean. I love him dearly, he is my person, he is my family. But I'm not attracted to men and I never have been," she said. 

Her attraction to women, she said, "became something that I didn't want to hide anymore and I didn't want to keep secret anymore. I want to be able to go out to dinner with whoever I want without judgment."

Braunwyn further mentioned that her sobriety helped her become her authentic self.

"I know there's a correlation between the two," she said. "I know when you get sober and you start doing the work that goes into that, you start realizing a lot of the reasons you drank had to do with who you were on the inside."

Asked how she feels now that she's publicly come out, Braunwyn said, "I'm still getting used to it."

After her interview, the TV star took to Instagram to thank GLAAD for the support.

"It feels so good to finally be living my truth. I am a lesbian. At 43 years old, I've finally been able to accept this part of myself and I've realized there are no rules about when someone should come out," she wrote. "This is my time."

wild allegations

Firm calls Erika Jayne's divorce a 'sham' to steal from plane crash victims

A Chicago law firm is claiming that Erika Jayne and Tom Girardi's divorce is nothing more than "a sham" with the purpose of embezzling money from the families of victims of a deadly plane crash.

In a class action lawsuit last year, Edelson PC represented the family's of the victims of Lion Air Flight 610, which crashed in 2018 during a flight from Jakarta, Indonesia, to Pangkal Pinang, Indonesia, killing all 189 people aboard. Tom's law firm, Girardi Keese, was also involved in the lawsuit against Boeing, as the fateful plane was a Boeing 737 Max 8.

In early 2020, Boeing quietly reached individual settlements with the families of the crash victims. Now, Edelson claims that Tom has been embezzling money from the settlements to support his and "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star's lifestyle.

The lawsuit, filed in court on Dec. 2 and obtained by the Chicago Sun-Times, claims Tom and his law firm "are on the verge of financial collapse and locked in a downward spiral of mounting debts and dwindling funds."

The sudden divorce, the lawsuit alleges, was done so that Tom, 81, and Erika, 49, can "project a public image of obscene wealth at all times, and at whatever the cost."

"While Erika publicly filed for divorce this month, on information and belief, that 'divorce' is simply a sham attempt to fraudulently protect Tom's and Erika's money from those that seek to collect on debts owed by Tom and his law firm GK," the lawsuit continued.

AKM-GSI

Erika filed for divorce from Tom on Nov. 3, citing irreconcilable differences. The couple had no prenuptial agreement, but she's asked for spousal support.

Edelson alleges that Tom and Erika "route the money to friends and family and satisfy other outstanding debts." The court filing also brings up Erika's comments in multiple interviews in which she acknowledges that she spends $40,000 a month for her look. It also brings up Tom's daily standing reservation at Morton's The Steakhouse in Los Angeles.

Edelson claims it became aware of potential issues after the firm contacted Tom to check on the status of the Boeing settlements being paid to the families. Tom, the firm says, was less than forthcoming.

"We're doing good on this thing, getting things squared away and sh—," Tom allegedly said in a voicemail attached to the court filing. "Don't be mean to me, be nice to me. I'm doing good. It was because of me that we got this by the way. … I'll be in touch, don't worry about everything, we're friends, things are going to work out good."

In another, Tom allegedly said, "We screwed up here a little bit. … We had three different air crashes and they got a little screwed up. I'll get everything worked out by Thursday. I'm so sorry, this never happened before, anyway, everything will be smoothed over on Thursday."

According to Page Six, the lawsuit asks a judge to create a trust to first benefit Lion Air clients before paying money owed to Edelson.

Health battle

Trista Sutter's husband addresses mystery illness

Ryan Sutter is opening up about his five-month health battle with a mystery illness that has left him "paralyzed" with fatigue.

The "Bachelorette" star's wife, Trista Sutter, first brought Ryan's internal war to light earlier in the week, indicating they know he's not battling cancer, but they don't know what he's actually suffering from.

In a series of Instagram posts, Ryan detailed his private fight, explaining that he began working as a firefighter again earlier this year.

"I completed the academy and believed/hoped I would begin to recover and feel better.  It's been five months now and, if anything, I feel worse," he said. "Though I am functional and continue to work my regular fire schedule, I am experiencing a battery of symptoms which include:  fatigue – sometimes almost paralyzing, deep body and muscle aches, fevers, night sweats, full body itching with no rash, headaches, neck and throat swelling, congestion, light headedness, nausea, and just general all around not feeling good."

Ryan has tested negative for COVID-19 several times and he's tested negative for Lupus, so those illnesses have been essentially ruled out. He's also taken several blood tests, but nothing has been conclusive.

"I am not taking any medications, maintain a healthy diet and am doing my best to get rest.  Most days I feel about 70%.  Somedays I feel a bit better and somedays I can barely get out of bed," he said. "I don't believe I have anything contagious as no one else in my family has been sick nor has anyone I have worked with or associated with been sick."

Since coming forward with his unknown illness, Ryan has heard from many others with similar stories. 

"The struggle to find answers in the medical world and support through the insurance industry is frustrating and lacking.  One must truly and persistently advocate for himself/herself if they hope to find answers or, at the very least, rule out possibilities," he said. "I am concerned that we are bearing witness to the effects of our lifestyles and the relative lack of understanding as to how we live on a daily basis influences our health and well being and the health and well being of others?  In the pursuit of answers to my personal situation, I hope I might be of some help to all those suffering in similar ways as I am now acutely sympathetic."

Regardless of the unknown, Ryan is prepared to fight this battle.

"I have a strong support group and the best wife in the world.  Please don't worry about me.  I will be fine.  If you must worry, worry about each other.  Support each other.  Be there for each other," he said. "The outpouring of support I have received has been humbling and therapeutic.  I could not be more grateful.  I can not imagine the healing power that amount of love and caring would have on the world should we all choose to apply it?  Maybe let's find out…"

Job offer

Tara Reid offered Nicole Kidman a job over Instagram

Shoot your shot, Tara Reid.

Over the weekend, the "American Pie" actress made a pitch to Nicole Kidman in hope of casting "The Undoing" star in an upcoming film. Normally this would't be noteworthy, but what made this particular pitch so unconventional is that it happened in the comments section of Nicole's Instagram.

The "Official Sean Penn Instagram" account (not the Sean Penn) captured a screen shot of Tara's grammatically incorrect comment, which came after Nicole posted a photo overlooking New York City.

"You are truly amazing in everything you do," Tara began. "I've b en [sic] a huge fan forever. Hopefully one day we can work together soon."

She added, "I'm producing a movie Masha's Mushroom it starring Vivica Fox, Billy Zane, Beverly Deangelo, myself Tara Reid, Sade and others it truly an amazing script."

"I would love for you to read it. Shoreline and Universal are doing it. It's a franchise of 5 films," she said. "If you can follow me so I can tell you more. Kindly, Tara."

It's unknown if Nicole responded or following Tara back. 

BTS Bill

South Korean government lets BTS delay mandatory military service

South Korean lawmakers are allowing BTS members to delay their required national military service due to the K-pop group's international popularity.

As part of the Military Service Act, all able-bodied South Korean men must serve at least 20 months in the national military before they turn 28. On Dec. 1, legislators overwhelmingly passed a bill — unofficially dubbed the "BTS bill" — which allows top K-pop artists to defer military service for two years. This is especially meaningful to BTS member, Kim Seok-jin, who turns 28 this week.

The bill is expected to be signed into law by President Moon Jae-in.

Under the law, deferment waivers would be granted to pop musicians who have won awards and bring cultural and economic prosperity to the country. One lawmaker noted that the band's first No. 1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 brought an estimated $1.5 billion into South Korea's economy. With BTS' success only rising, the Asian nation doesn't want to mess with the group's mojo and the financial boon it brings to the country right now. 

There are exceptions to the mandatory military service rule. Professional athletes are except, as are award-winning musicians from non-pop genres.

Squashed

Dwayne Johnson and Tyrese finally squash their three-year feud

Things are less contentious between feuding "Fast & Furious" stars Dwayne Johnson and Tyrese Gibson.

The two actors' public spat first went public in 2017 when Tyrese publicly criticized The Rock for signing on to do the "Hobbs & Shaw" movie — a spinoff of the "Fast & Furious" franchise. At the time, Tyrese called Dwayne "selfish" for agreeing to do the spinoff, while also accusing him of making decisions based on "his own self interests."

Around the same time, Tyrese also said The Rock wouldn't respond to his text messages despite the two being friends and having starred in four "Fast & Furious" films together.

The following year, Dwayne said the public disagreement was "pretty disappointing." 

"I always feel like a beef requires two people to actually jump in it, and it was really one-sided, and he had voiced his opinion a lot on social media," Dwayne said. "Apparently, he was going through some stuff too in his personal life. We haven't talked and I don't see where we would, and to me, there's no need to have a conversation."

Last year, Tyrese slammed The Rock after the "Hobbs & Shaw" opening

Now, though, things have apparently simmered. 

"We talked," Tyrese told Comedy Central's Stir Crazy with Josh Horowitz this week. "We talked for at least four hours. It was great."

"What's interesting about 'The Fast and The Furious' is it's not about any of us individually," he continued, speaking specifically about the franchise's spinoffs. "We're like the UN at this point. Everyone gets to go to the theater and say, 'He and she looks like me.' If I did it with [Ludacris's Tej], then who are we going to play off of? I could not just make it about me. I just could not."

Splitsville

Meghan King and boyfriend split after six months

E! News broke the split news on Nov. 30, reporting that Christian, a Utah-based businessman, didn't like the publicity that came with the romance. However, he told Page Six that's not the case.

"I've never had any problem with any form of publicity," he said. "We lead very different lives and knew that when we met. Sometimes this happens. I wish nothing but the best for Meghan and the kids and we're on good terms."

Fans suspected a split occurred when the former "The Real Housewives of Orange County" star recently gave a tour of her home on Instagram Live. She made no mention of Christian but did give her three kids and dog a shoutout.

"No one is moving in this home except for me, Girly Girl, Aspen, Hart and Hayes," she said. "That's it. That is everyone who will be living in this house."

Meghan and Christian first met on a dating app earlier this year — several months after her contentious split from her ex-husband, former baseball player Jim Edmonds. The duo went "Instagram official" in May. At the beginning of their romance, some critics assumed Christian was only dating Meghan for notoriety.

"I found that pretty funny because if fame was what I was after, I've had dozens of opportunities in my life to do something for fame," he said. "I don't think moving from Los Angeles to Park City is something that somebody who's fame-hungry [would do]. I'm a dude that's been pretty career-focused, and has been trying to meet the right person."
