Spencer Pratt 'mind blown' after seeing new 'Hills' footage

Spencer Pratt has seen footage from "The Hills: New Beginnings," and he's incredibly impressed.

"So, spoiler alert, I saw the first ep — oh — I saw some content of the show and there's social media used in the show that creates like an energy of like, you're filming this, so it kinda creates draw," he told Page Six. "It's so meta. It's like, pfft, mind-blown."

Spencer is a bit of a social media guru, as he's very active on both Instagram and Snapchat. In a recent interview, he didn't specify what social media platform is used in the anticipated MTV reboot.

"Well it's really fun filming yourself, and now it's such a blessing to have MTV's beautiful cameras on tripods," the former reality TV villain said. "Like, you know my thumb feels better, like, ah, it's relaxed, like, it's great."

While the "Hills" reboot features some OGs, such and Spencer, his wife Heidi Pratt, Audrina Patridge and Brody Jenner, it will also features some fresh faces, including Mischa Barton and Pamela Anderson's son, Brandon Lee. Pam is even featured briefly in the show.

"The show is very Brody Jenner-centric," an insider told Page Six last fall. "The cast is circling around him and his friends."

"The Hills: New Beginnings" premieres on MTV on June 24.

Ring issue

Psychic wants apology from Kyle Richards for stolen ring story

Round and round we go! The fortune teller who supposedly has a ring that was stolen from Kyle Richards is "demanding an apology" while claiming she's owned the jewelry for years. 

The long-nailed psychic is set to speak to "Inside Edition" about the fiasco.

"Watch @InsideEdition TODAY as we reveal the lady behind the ring…and those nails!," journalist Lisa Guerrero tweeted on Sept. 28. "She's demanding an apology: That's no 'stolen ring'. She's had it for decades and has the evidence to prove it!"

Last week, Kyle claimed on "Secrets Revealed" that a ring stolen from her home in a 2018 burglary turned up on Diane Keaton's Instagram in 2019

"I was looking on Instagram and I saw Diane Keaton — she posted a picture of a psychic's hands on the 3rd Street Promenade and they had my ring on her hand… It was the craziest, craziest story," the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star said.

At the time, Kyle briefly tried tracking down the psychic, but to no avail.

"I want to know if she bought that from someone at a pawn shop, even if I have to buy it back from her, I'm happy to do that," she said last week.

The plot thickened on Sept. 25 when a TikTok user claimed that woman in the picture was her grandmother. The girl was adamant that her grandma had owned the bauble forever.

Grandma, the girl said, "has been working in a pharmacy for over 50 years [and] has had those rings for decades." The girl purportedly attached a photo from her 5th grade graduation to the TikTok post that appeared to show grandma with the ring.

Since Naya passed away after drowning in California's Lake Piru in July, Ryan seems to have grown quite close with Nickayla, Naya's sister, as the two have been seen grieving together. 

The Daily Mail reports that Ryan and Nickayla have rented a three-bedroom home together in Southern California so that they can care for 5-year-old Josey together.

A witness saw the duo at Target after he moved in.

"They seem really comfortable together and are obviously helping each other through a very difficult period in both their lives," the source said. "They were fooling around and chatting the whole time. They're obviously helping lift each other's spirits."

Ryan, the Mail says, moved into the home during the first week of September. The home has a pool and costs supposedly rents for $5,000-a-month, the report says.

Always bringing the 🌞

A post shared by Naya Rivera (@nayarivera) on

Naya went missing on July 8 while swimming with Josey at Lake Piru. While Josey was found unharmed by himself in a boat, Naya was not found. Her body was discovered a few days later.

"There's not enough words to express the hole left in everyone's hearts," Dorsey wrote in an Instagram tribute to Rivera after her death. "Life is all about good times and bad times but with Josey it makes the bad a little less so because a part of you will always be with us. He'll never forget where he came from. We miss you. We will always love you."

Naya and Ryan married in July 2014, but split in 2018. They, however, remained committed parenting Josey.


Jordyn Woods reflects on Tristan Thompson scandal

A year and a half after the Jordyn Woods and Tristan Thompson scandal sent shockwaves throughout pop culture, the model is opening up about the fallout that occurred afterward and how she felt like it was her against the world.

"I remember just sitting in a very dark place. I had my family to talk to, I had you to talk to, but I just felt like I had no one," Jordyn said in an interview with Natalie Manuel Lee. "You take everything you think you know for a whole decade, the people you think you know, the life you think you know, everything that you've grown up doing and take it all away from someone. I didn't even know how to feel."

Jordyn has long maintained that Tristan, Khloe Kardashian's boyfriend, kissed her at a party on February 2019, but she says she never returned the kiss. Nonetheless, she was essentially blackballed from the Kardashian inner circle and she was essentially forced to move out of longtime BFF Kylie Jenner's house.

Amid the reports, many of them unkind to Jordyn, she said it wasn't difficult to avoid the rumors because she "deleted everything" off her phone. 

"I wouldn't respond to anyone. I responded to about two people. I pushed people away that probably shouldn't have been pushed away but I just couldn't trust anyone. Everything in my life changed," she said, according to TooFab. "It's easy to make it seem like the world is against you and in that case in that moment, I did feel like everything was against me. The only thing I really had to lean on was my faith and my family. At some point in time, you're going to go through something that feels like your world is falling apart."


The situation — and the collapse of the world around her — forced her to look inward.

"Looking at the situation, 'Okay what did I do, what role did I play in this, how was I responsible, how can I be held accountable, how can I take responsibility for what happened?'" she said she asked herself at the time. "Things happen and that's what makes us human. But just acceptance and accountability and responsibility. I feel like people in this generation lack accountability and when you can't accept what you've done or you can't accept that, then you can't heal from it."

"It's easy to beat yourself up over things that you could have done differently," she continued. "You can't hold on to what you could have or should have done, you just have to accept what actually happened and then you can let it go. It might take you a month to let it go, it might take you a year to let it go but you have to start praying to be able to let it go."

Jordyn has since found happiness, as she's rumored to be dating NBA star Karl-Anthony Towns. However, she scandal was one of the more traumatic experiences of her life. 

"A lot can happen in one year, a lot. A lot can happen in one day. A lot did happen to me in one day," she said. "Over months, and losing everything I thought I knew and gaining so much knowledge, you just can only be happy. The amount of strength I've gained in this year alone, nothing else could have shaped me to the person I am today."

When asked if she was happy that that scandal happened because of the strength gained, Jordyn said, "I'm not happy that people were hurt and people had to go through what they went through. It was a lot for everyone, my family, other families, friends and not in a million years have I had a negative intention to do anything bad to anyone that I love. I wouldn't say that I'm happy something like that happened, but I'm happy that I was able to become who I am today."

Covid violations

Salt Bae's Boston restaurant shut down over alleged Covid violations

Boston officials are feeling salty toward viral chef Nusret Gokce for allegedly violating COVID-19 restrictions at his popular restaurant.

Nusret, better known as Salt Bae, was forced to shut down the doors of his signature steakhouse after city officials found the restaurant packed with little social distancing and very few people wearing masks.

Recently, Massachusetts began allowing dine-in service and allowed patrons to convene at the bar in groups of 10 or less. The steakhouse appears to have not enforced those restrictions.

Why officials even looked into alleged violations in the first place could have to do with social media. On Sept. 18, the restaurant's own Instagram showed a sea of people inside and outside the establishment. Further, a TikTok video went viral recently showing a woman twerking in the lobby of the restaurant while Salt Bae filmed her. 

TMZ reported that the restaurant will have several hearings this week to respond to the alleged violations.

Housewives rumors

Kathy Hilton not interested in full-time 'Housewives' role: Report

Kathy Hilton is happy being a full-time wife … not a full-time "Real Housewife."

Amid rumors that Paris Hilton's mom was being offered a gig on the "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," Page Six reported that Kathy is interested in joining the show, but only as a "friend," meaning she'd only have to show up occasionally on the Bravo show.


The source said Kathy feels that it's simply "easier" to be an associate of the main cast, as opposed to actually being in the main cast.

"For one thing, part-timers don't have to take part in the grueling postseason reunion specials, which take several long days to produce," Page Six reported on Sept. 28.

Andy Cohen, the executive producer of the "Housewives" franchise, has been tasked with filling the void left by Denise Richards' recent departure. 

Kathy is no stranger to the show, as she is the half-sister of Kyle Richards and former "Housewives" star Kim Richards. The socialite has also appeared on the show several times over the years. 


Speculation about Kathy's potential involvement in the show is nothing new. In fact, last year rumors circulated that she could become a full-time member of the show.

"I would be happy if my sister joined," Kyle said on "Watch What Happens Live" as rumors surfaced. "I've had one sister on, why not have another sister on."

Kyle added that Paris and Nicky Hilton's mom is "one of the funniest people there is."

"She's a practical joker and she's very, very funny," Kyle said, "so I think she'd be an amazing Housewife actually."

Kathy wasn't the only high-profile name in the rumor mill. Following the Kardashian-Jenner family's announcement that it was ending "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after next season, many fans pleaded for Kris Jenner to join the "Housewives" cast. However, she shot down those fan's hopes on "Ellen" last week. 

"There's just too much going on in my life," she said, "and they do not need a Kris Jenner on that show. They are doing just fine."

Baby No. 1!

Frankie Muniz and Paige Price are expecting their first child

"Malcolm in the Middle" alum Frankie Muniz is going to be a dad!

The actor, 34, and his wife and longtime partner, Paige Price, announced they're expecting their first child together in a YouTube video on Saturday. The video also appears in a new section on the couple's website called "Baby Muniz."

"We were shocked and thrilled to hear the news that we're going to be parents," Frankie captioned the post, adding that the couple is "currently travelling through Jackson, Wyoming," so they "decided to make a little video" to share with fans and friends.

"Nothing compares to hearing your little one's heartbeat… the second I heard that heartbeat, reality set in. I was throwing out baby names and future career choices," Frankie jokes in the sweet clip, which shows the couple goofing off, dancing and rubbing Paige's belly.

The two go on to explain they'd been told chances of conceiving were slim, saying happily that they "beat the odds" and "are officially 15 weeks along and counting!"

(It's unclear if their chances of becoming parents were affected by the health issues Frankie's suffered in recent years, including two strokes that left him with memory loss and a racing crash that caused lasting physical impairments.)

The parents-to-be got married this past February in Phoenix. "Baby Muniz" is due in March. Congrats!

Album Cameo

Megan Fox makes a romantic cameo on Machine Gun Kelly's new album

The Megan Fox – Machine Gun Kelly lovefest now has a soundtrack.

Kristina Bumphrey/StarPix / Rob Latour/Shutterstock/Kristina Bumphrey/StarPix / Rob Latour/Shutterstock

On Friday, MGK released "Tickets To My Downfall," his fifth studio album, featuring the singer on vocals and guitar alongside Blink-182's Travis Barker on drums. The pop-punk excursion also features a number of guests, including Halsey, MGK's buddy Pete Davidson and — you guessed it — MGK's first and apparently only love, Megan.

Both Pete and Megan contribute voice work to "Kevin and Barracuda Interlude." But it's "Banyan Tree" track where the singer and his "twin flame" share a more personal peek into their hearts.

At one point, the interlude features Megan asking her love if he "remembers the stuff you do with me?" (via ET).

MGK then assures her, "Yes, of course I do. I cherish you."

She responds by saying, "It was just four months ago that we were right here and I met you. That's not possible."

Later, she tells him: "You just got my initials tattooed on you. I just got your nickname tattooed on me."


It's a good bet they really did get matching tats to commemorate their romance.

Megan, 34, and MGK, 30 met on the set of the film, "Midnight in the Switchgrass," and started dating after Megan and her husband Brian Austin Green called it quits (again).

Since then, they've been anything but subtle about their feelings for one another on social media and even in interviews.

Last week, during a chat with Howard Stern on his SiriusXM show, MGK revealed he'd fallen in love "for the first time" after having completed "a big chunk of the album."

He said he realized he "didn't know what [love] was" until he and Megan "made eye contact."

Things got serious fast after that.

"That was my first experience with being open to love and stuff like that. I definitely wasn't set up to believe that that's something that could ever exist," he said on the show.

Megan, who appears in MGK's "Bloody Valentine" video, has been similarly open about discussing the couple's relationship. Speaking to Lala Kent on her podcast in July, Megan recounted falling for MGK this way:

"I knew right away that he was what I call a twin flame. Instead of a soul mate, a twin flame is actually where a soul has like ascended into a high enough level that it can be split into two different bodies at the same time. So we're actually two halves of the same soul, I think."

"Tickets To My Downfall" also features appearances by Blackbear, Trippie Redd and Iann Dior.

Progress For Vogue

Lizzo's Vogue cover represents major 'progress,' says Andre Leon Talley

Former Vogue editor Andre Leon Talley is impressed — both with Vogue's October cover, which features Lizzo, and with what it says about Anna Wintour, as far as her recent vow to improve inclusivity at the magazine, which she admitted has a history of publishing "hurtful and intolerant" content and failing to "to elevate and give space to Black" content creators.

"Proud to see the very, very beautiful, stunningly elegant [Lizzo] on Vogue's current cover," Talley posted on Instagram Friday, sharing the Hype Williams-shot cover of Lizzo in a lightweight, flowing red Valentino dress. "Progress is advancing at full supersonic Concorde speed," he continued. "Dame Anna Wintour made a promise and she kept her word. Her public apology was right on. In the years I worked there, under her reign, this cover would have never been published, even if it were a trial."

Talley was referring to an apology letter Wintour reportedly sent Vogue employees in early June, as George Floyd's killing at the hands of white police sparked what would become a monumental national reckoning on systemic racism in America.

"I want to start by acknowledging your feelings and expressing my empathy towards what so many of you are going through: sadness, hurt, and anger too," Wintour wrote to staff at the time. "I want to say this especially to the Black members of our team — I can only imagine what these days have been like. But I also know that the hurt, and violence and injustice we're seeing and talking about have been around for a long time. Recognizing it and doing something about it is overdue."

Wintour, who's edited the magazine since 1988 and since 2013 has also served as the artistic director for Condé Nast, which publishes Vogue, continued: "I want to say plainly that I know Vogue has not found enough ways to elevate and give space to Black editors, writers, photographers, designers and other creators. We have made mistakes too, publishing images or stories that have been hurtful or intolerant. I take full responsibility for those mistakes."

She went on to encourage employees to give their "feedback" directly to her, writing, "I value your voices." Finally, she promised to be proactive about the changes many, including Talley, have long said were needed.

"This is a historic and heartbreaking moment for our country and it should be a time of listening, reflection and humility for those of us in positions of privilege and authority," she wrote. "It should also be a time of action and commitments."

Talley's relationship with Wintour has had notorious moments of ugliness through the years. As he said in his lengthy Instagram post about the October cover, "in the years I worked there, under [Wintour's] reign, this cover would have never been published, even if it were a trial," adding that the advertising departments would have shut down any attempts to go with a plus-sized Black woman as a cover star, despite the singer's massive popularity.

The cover story itself deals at the idea of body positivity, which Lizzo says needs to be extended beyond "the mainstream narrative" so that it can benefit "the people that this term was created for …girls who are in the 18-plus [size] club."

"I think it's lazy for me to just say I'm body positive at this point … It's easy," she explains in the piece, wihch features the singer looking utterly gorgeous in pieces by Valentino, Moschino Couture, Gucci and LaQuan Smith. "I would like to be body-normative. I want to normalize my body. And not just be like, 'Ooh, look at this cool movement. Being fat is body positive.' No, being fat is normal," Lizzo says in the piece.

In the piece, the singer also weighs in on racial justice, reflecting on how she lost hope after 12-year-old Tamir Rice was shot and killed, her response to Floyd's death in Minneapolis, where her career began, and the importance of voting as an act of protest.

Surprise Split?

Max Ehrich says he learned about Demi Lovato split 'through a tabloid;' Demi reportedly disagrees

Just two days after People confirmed Demi Lovato and Max Ehrich had called off their engagement, Max, 29, announced he only discovered the relationship was over when he saw the news in a "tabloid." A source close to Demi, however, disagrees.

"Imagine finding out to the status of your relationship through a tabloid… ," he wrote on his Instagram Story early in the morning on Saturday, Sept. 26, according to JustJared. "While your [sic] in the middle of filming a biopic movie about a Pastor in a Christian Church whose intention of the film is to help people."

He added "God bless" and signed off with a dove Emoji.

After Max's post grabbed headlines Saturday, an insider told People Max had already been informed of their revised "relationship status."

"Demi made Max aware that the relationship was over and it was going to come out in the press," the source said.

The former couple's seeming disagreement comes after a week of rumors suggesting Demi, 28, no longer trusted Max after screenshots surfaced earlier this month that appeared to show her fiance flirting with other pop stars.

One allegedly showed him calling Ariana Grande "my wife," while another claimed he told Selena Gomez to "MARRY ME NOW" during an Instagram Live. Demi said at the time the screenshots looked fake.

Then, after a week of rumors suggesting the couple was on the verge of a split, People cited a source "with knowledge of the situation" as having confirmed they were done.


"It was a tough decision, but Demi and Max have decided to go their separate ways to focus on their respective careers," the insider reportedly said. "They have respect and love for one another and will always cherish the time they spent together."

After the report was published, Demi posted a video of herself on her Instagram Story that showed her looking in a mirror without her ring on while wearing a shirt emblazoned with the phrase, "Dogs Over People."

If they have indeed called it quits just two months into their engagement, it would be on par with what's been a fast-moving relationship from the beginning. The pair just started dating in March but quickly became smitten with one another, judging from their frequent, PDA and love-filled social media posts.

Then, in Malibu on July 22, the former "Young and the Restles" star popped the question to Demi. She said "yes" and shared another moving tribute to Max on Instagram, announcing the engagement.

As of Saturday morning, posts featuring Max — including those with photos from the moment he proposed — were still on Demi's Instagram.

Max is currently filming "Southern Gospel" in and around Atlanta, according to imdb.
