Ex fight

Tarek El Moussa and Christina Haack have behind-the-scenes blowout

Tarek El Moussa and his ex-wife, Christina Haack, had a nasty fight on the set of "Flip or Flop" this week… a fight so bad that the duo had to film their scenes separately.

TMZ said the fight began with Christina signaling to her ex that she was ready to begin filming. Tarek supposedly lost it and began ripping Christina, claiming that she's a "washed-up loser."

During the tirade, Tarek began comparing Christina to his fiancee, Heather Rae Young, claiming the latter is "hotter and richer than Christina," TMZ said. Tarek even supposedly claimed that he "made" Christina.

"Look at me, look at me, look at me. It's called winning," he reportedly said. "The world knows you're crazy!"

A source told the webloid that Tarek's been incredibly angry with his ex ever since she recently admitted to smoking toad venom before meeting her new boyfriend Joshua Hall. Tarek believes Christina's decision was reckless, considering they have two children.

The behind-the-scenes blowout isn't new. In fact, sources say this has happened before. As result of the latest fight, production stopped filming Tarek and Christina together for the rest of the day.

Although the fight was volatile, it's also much ado about nothing, given that Tarek and Christina are both executives of "Flip or Flop."

"There's going to be tension from time to time," the report says.

Familiar date

Kristin Cavallari reveals she and Jay Cutler secretly dated after divorce

Despite labeling their marriage "toxic," Kristin Cavallari said things still weren't totally over with ex Jay Cutler after filing for divorce in April 2020. In fact, the "Laguna Beach" star admitted that the duo secretly went on a few dates after splitting.

"I have to say, it's been such a rollercoaster, but it's been the brightest and the saddest, the whole experience," she told Kaitlyn Bristowe on her "Off the Vine" podcast. "Jay and I actually went on a couple dates, like, months and months and months ago, but we did." 

On those dates, she realized the connection "wasn't there anymore."

"The thing with Jay and I is we aren't getting a divorce because of love lost, which made it really challenging because we were crazy about each other," the reality star said. "And so I just decided I didn't want to be in a toxic relationship anymore and I had to break it off. But that's made it hard and made me sit here and question it for a few months. But then going back and dating him a little bit made me reaffirm, like, 'No, I know that I'm doing the right decision.'"

"I come from divorced parents and I was like, 'I don't want my kids growing up thinking that this is a good relationship,'" she continued. "Because I got to see my mom remarry and be in a good relationship so that I knew what one was. I mean, I wanted my kids to see me happy. I just did. And they're better off. And they've adjusted really well, not that there's ever a perfect age for it, but they were at good ages. And so, I'm glad that it happened when it did."

At this rate, it's hard to tell if Kristin and Jay, who share three children, are even friends. 

"This is what I said to my friends," she said. "I'm like, 'If I didn't have kids with Jay, I would never talk to him ever again. But now, I have to talk to him a lot.'"

Home sweet home

Courteney Cox returns to 'Friends' apartment in hilarious skit

Courteney Cox doesn't want anyone invading her space!

On Oct. 20, the actress took to Instagram to share a hilarious video set outside the iconic New York City apartment building that served as the facade of Monica Geller's home on "Friends." (The interior apartment scenes were actually filmed in Los Angeles.) The video begins with Courteney's "Scream 5" co-star Melissa Barrera walking toward the building, which is located at 90 Bedford St., as the "Friends" intro and outro music plays. 

"Melissa! How are you? Where are you going?" Courteney asks Melissa, who replies, "I'm just going home."

Melissa then gestures toward the building as if she lives there.

"Oh, you're going home. That's weird. I don't think that's your home," Courteney tells Melissa. "I'm happy you joined the 'Scream' cast, but this is not OK. This is off limits."

Melissa sweetly implies that it's all for fun.

"No, Melissa, there's only so much," Courteney says before referencing Lin-Manuel Miranda's "In the Heights," in which Melissa starred. "Go on, go back to the Heights," she says.

As Melissa walks away, she shouts Monica's catchphrase: "I know!"

The women clearly recorded the video in jest to promote "Scream 5." Fans loved it: It racked up hundreds of thousands of likes. Followers quoted lines and dubbed it the "best content."

Melissa also commented while still maintaining character. 

"But… I'll be there for you," she wrote. She also posted the video to her Instagram Story, writing, "I tried."

Scathing accusations

Ruby Rose accuses 'Batwoman' execs of harassment, abuse

Ruby Rose is blasting "Batwoman" executives and accusing them of abuse and harassment in a series of scathing posts on her Instagram Story. 

In her fiery social media posts on Oct. 19 and Oct. 20, Ruby claimed former CW President Peter Roth "forced" her to work 10 days after having neck surgery from an injury on set. The "Orange Is The New Black" star also shared a video in which a doctor calls her injuries "abnormal."

Detailing why she went back to the show too quickly, Ruby claimed, "[If I didn't] the whole crew and cast would be fired, and I'd let everyone down, because Peter Roth said he wouldn't recast and I just lost the studio millions (by getting injured on his set). [And] that I'd be the one who cost so many people their jobs."

In addition, she accused the then-CW President of sexual impropriety.

"Not sure if you left after getting promoted to the highest position because you just couldn't stop making young women steam your pants, around your crotch while you were still wearing said pants or if you left after putting a private investigator on me who you fired as soon as the report didn't fit your narrative, either way," she wrote on her Instagram Story. "When it comes to you, there's already an army waiting for u." 

Ruby, 35, also alleged that her co-star Dougray Scott was "abusing women."

"Dougray hurt a female stunt double, he yelled like a little b— at women and was a nightmare," she said. "He left when he wanted and arrived when he wanted. He abused women and in turn as a lead of a show I sent an email asking for a no yelling policy, they declined."

Ruby went after producers by name, claiming they refused to take cast and crew safety into account, and she said the showrunner was only on set a few times a year.

Back in May 2020, Ruby announced she stepped away from the show, but she now insists that wasn't the truth. 

"To my dear, dear fans still asking if I will return to that awful show, I wouldn't return for any amount of money nor if a gun were to my head … NOR DID I QUIT. I DID NOT QUIT, they ruined Kate Kane and they destroyed Batwoman, not me," she wrote. "I followed orders, and if I wanted to stay I was going to have to sign my rights away. Any threats, any bullying tactics or blackmail would not make me stand down."

After the posts, CW and Warner Bros. responded and confirmed that Ruby was fired.

"Despite the revisionist history that Ruby Rose is now sharing online aimed at the producers, the cast and crew, the network, and the Studio, the truth is that Warner Bros. Television had decided not to exercise its option to engage Ruby for season two of 'Batwoman' based on multiple complaints about workplace behavior that were extensively reviewed and handled privately out of respect for all concerned," a statement read.

Body shaming clapback

Gordon Ramsay's teen daughter rips radio host who called her 'chubby'

Gordon Ramsay's daughter is skewering a radio host who body shamed her on the air, claiming she's been eating too much of her "dad's cooking."

On Oct. 20, Matilda Ramsay, who's often referred to as Tilly, posted a clip of Steve Allen's mean-spirited comments from the U.K. program "LBC."

"Tilly Ramsay is on 'Celebrity MasterChef Australia,' is she? Well she can't blooming well dance, I'm bored with her already," Steve said, referring to her appearance on "Strictly Come Dancing." He then added, "She's a chubby little thing, isn't she? Have you noticed? Probably her dad's cooking, I should imagine."

Tilly, 19, responded to the unkind words on Instagram, making it clear that the host went too far. 

"I try not to read and listen to comments and negativity however recently being called out on a national radio station by a 67-year-old man is a step too far," she wrote. "Steve please feel free [to] voice your opinions however I draw the line at commenting on my appearance. It's such a shame that someone is trying to make such a positive experience negative."

"This isn't the first and definitely won't be the last comment made about my appearance and I accept that," she continued. "But please remember that words can hurt and at the end of the day I am only 19."

Tilly realizes that people will share their unsolicited opinions about her but hopes that a lesson can be learned from critiquing people at such impressionable ages.

"I'm so grateful for all the amazing opportunities I have been able to take part in and I understand that being in the public eye obviously comes with it's own repercussions and I've been aware of this from a young age," she said. "However I won't tolerate people that think its okay to publicly comment and scrutinise [sic] anyone's weight and appearance."

Tilly — who captioned the post with the hashtag "be kind" — was soon flooded with support. Another famous celebrity offspring — Elizabeth Hurley's son Damian Hurley — was among her supporters.

"What a total wanker. Bloody uncalled for," Damian commented. "Can't wait for you to have the last laugh and keep winning. Sending you love." 

Bitter split

Dr. Dre served divorce documents at cemetery

Dr. Dre's vitriolic divorce is getting more and more personal. 

According to a new report, a process server for Nicole Young, Dre's ex-wife, attempted to serve the rapper with legal documents at the cemetery this week. He was there burying his grandmother, who helped raise him.

TMZ reports that the bitterness between the former couple is so bad that they can't even agree on where Dre was confronted by the process server on Monday. Dre and his team allege that he was served at the burial site as he stood by his grandmother's casket. Nicole's team claims the music mogul was served in the cemetery's parking lot after the burial.

The exes also can't agree on what happened next, as Dre sources said he didn't take the documents in hand, prompting the server to leave the documents by the graveside. Sources close to Nicole said the server left the documents in the parking lot. 

The report alleges that the paperwork being served involved attorney's fees. In the midst of the couple's legal back-and-forth over the past 16 months, a judge signed an order declaring that Dre (real name: Andre Young) owes Nicole $1,550,000 in attorney's fees. Dre, however, felt that was an error and paid $325,433. The legal docs served to Dre on Oct. 18 demand the difference of $1,224,567.

Dre and Nicole's split has been acrimonious at best. In late June 2020, she filed divorce paperwork, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split. In her divorce filing, Nicole, a lawyer, didn't mention that a prenuptial agreement existed. However, Dre legally responded to the filing a few weeks later, contending that division of property should be governed by their prenup. Nicole argued that she "unwillingly" signed the prenup in 1996 and said it wasn't valid because Dre "ripped it up" a few years later. 

While all this played out, Nicole requested $2M a month in spousal support, but a judge rebuffed that request, declaring Dre pay her $293,306 per month. Throughout the course of the split, Nicole has also accused him of abuse and insisted that she co-owned some of Dre's most valuable trademarks, including his stage name. He accused her of embezzlement.

Social media silence

Shanna Moakler takes Instagram hiatus after Travis-Kourtney engagement

Shanna Moakler is going silent in the wake of her ex-husband's engagement to Kourtney Kardashian

The model announced her intention to take a break from Instagram. 

"Temporarily closed for spiritual maintenance," she posted on her Instagram Story, according to People magazine. She also reportedly added a quote attributed to late rapper Tupac Shakur, which read, "Before you ask why someone hates you, ask yourself why you give a f—."

Back in February, not long after Kourtney and Travis Barker, Shanna's ex, went public, the former beauty queen was supportive of the romance.

"He's my friend and co-parent, and I want him to be happy," she told a paparazzo, "and if being with her makes him happy, and she's happy, I'm happy for both of them honestly."

She quickly added, "He can handle that Kardashian drama."

In late spring, though, she changed her tune and accused Kourtney of "destroying" her family. "My family's broken because of this family, and now my kids are alienated from each other because of another sister in this family," she told TMZ.

Travis and Kourtney's romance appeared destined for an engagement early on, as the two were essential inseparable, and she even got him flying again

Over the weekend, the Blink-182 drummer popped the question to the "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" star at the Rosewood Miramar in Montecito, California. The proposal was reportedly filmed for the Kardashian's upcoming reality show on Hulu.

"It was a complete surprise for Kourtney. Travis told her family that he planned to propose, but everyone was great at keeping it secret," a source told People. "The Rosewood is their favorite for short weekend getaways. They often stay at the hotel. This is why Travis proposed there. It's a very special place to them, but it was also easier to keep everything a secret by proposing there."

"Kourtney is of course ecstatic," the source added. "She can't wait to marry Travis. She would also love to have a baby with him."

This will be Travis' second marriage, as he was married to Shanna from 2004 to 2008. They share children, Landon, 17, and Alabama, 15. Kourtney and Travis' romance also put the spotlight on Shanna's relationship with Landon and Alabama, especially after her daughter dubbed Shanna an absentee parent over the summer. Prior to that, Landon said on social media, "… Our mom has never been in our lives and isn't in our lives like our dad is."

While addressing the mother-children drama in June, Shanna told Page Six, "Sadly right now at this moment there's still some distance. I'm just trying to give everybody some space." The self-imposed "space" was needed, she said, "so we can heal and come back together again."

Things appeared to get better after that, as Shanna and Alabama made a TikTok video together. Shanna also recently posted a photo from a sushi date with her son. After the engagement, though, Buzzfeed reported that Shanna had mysteriously removed several images of her kids from her Instagram. 

Legal move

Tori Spelling seemingly visits lawyer about 'assets, support, custody' amid divorce chatter

Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott have been dogged with divorce rumors for years, but it seems like there may be some credence to the speculation.

On Oct. 18, the "Beverly Hills, 90210" alum was photographed outside an attorney's office in Los Angeles carrying a notepad. Zoomed in photos show 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. 

Photographers claimed the "Messyness" co-host — who was not wearing her wedding ring — spent about an hour with an attorney. Dean, Tori's husband of 15 years, did not appear to be present.

Although Tori hasn't publicly confirmed that divorce is on the table, she has openly admitted to having marital strife. Back in June the actress acknowledged that the couple slept in separate bedrooms. Then, on the Sept. 15 episode of the "Feminine Warrior" podcast, Dean addressed the split speculation… sort of. 

"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." 

Broadimage/REX/Shutterstock

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. 

Dean and Tori share five children: Liam, 14, Stella, 13, Hattie, 10, Finn, 9, and Beau, 4.

The couple's romance got off to an inauspicious start as they were both married to other people when they began an affair on the set of a Lifetime movie. Then, in 2014, Dean admitted to cheating on Tori and their ups and downs were broadcast on the reality TV show "True Tori."

Andy Cohen airs some BTS 'Housewives' dirty laundry and names names

Andy Cohen is coming clean about some of the more contentious behind-the-scenes "Housewives" exits, including one couple who "went for blood" after they were let go from "The Real Housewives of New York."

In the new book "Not All Diamonds and Rosé: The Inside Story of the Real Housewives from the People Who Lived It," the Bravo scion said Alex McCord and her husband, Simon van Kempen, took their firing so hard that they essentially tried to undermine the show.

"[They] went for blood after we didn't pick them up. They became incredible thorns in our side," Andy said in the book, which is authored by Dave Quinn. "Simon left his job and started a website called BravoRatings.com, where he analyzed our ratings. He would live-tweet 'Watch What Happens Live' and troll my guests."

Oddly, Andy kind of admired the dedication of Alex and Simon, who were on the show for the first four seasons. 

"It was a brilliant — albeit seemingly time-consuming and not at all profitable — way to try to get under our skin," he said, via the New York Post. "Then Alex starts a vlog where she would critique episodes of 'New York Housewives' and talk about areas where she thought that production had gotten involved. It was unprecedented. I've never seen anything like it since."

Andy, an executive producer of the "Housewives," also touched on Carole Radziwill's unceremonious exit.

The journalist was on the show for six seasons, ending her run in 2018. When Carole left, she posted a cryptic message to Instagram about being forced to do things that were against her "value system." While she didn't name the reality show, it seemed obvious that she was referring to "RHONY."

"Carole's post basically implied that she was leaving a really toxic situation," Andy said in the book. "It really rubbed me the wrong way because I really felt like I had changed her life."

Carole was quoted in the book, too, and she claims "Andy went ballistic" over her social media move, adding that she told him to never contact her again. 

For his part, Andy noted, "She is not the person I used to know."

Young love

Fans are loving Tom Holland's smitten Instagram post about Zendaya

Tom Holland only has eyes — heart eyes, actually — for Zendaya.

The "Spider-Man" star couldn't help himself after he saw a photo of his lady love on the red carpet at the London premiere of her new movie "Dune." 

"Dune," he captioned a stunning black-and-white snap of Zendaya. He added a heart-eyes emoji. Zendaya, in turn, commented on Tom's post with a teary-eyed face. 

The actress's response was so adorable that more 2,000 people reacted to her comment alone. Heck, Tom's swooning post got more than eight million likes, proving fans can't get enough of the picture-perfect couple.

Tom and Zendaya were first linked in 2017 after starring in "Spider-Man: Homecoming" together, but they dodged romance rumors for years. They seemed to have split up somewhere along the way, as she was seen cuddling up with "Euphoria" castmate Jacob Elordi in early 2020, and he was spotted holding hands with Olivia Bolton in the summer of 2019. 

The duo clearly reconciled, as they were photographed kissing in July. The following month, Tomdaya, as they're affectionally known, finally went public with their relationship at pal Josh Florez's wedding.

She also gushed about Tom to InStyle, saying there are "many things, obviously, that I appreciate" about him. 

"In an actor way, I appreciate that he really loves being Spider-Man. It's a lot of pressure — you take on the role of a superhero wherever you go," she said. "To the little kid who walks by, you are Spider-Man. I think he handled that so well. And seeing him at work, even though he's not a Virgo, he is a perfectionist."

The Emmy winner added that her beau is "very charismatic" and "can make anybody feel comfortable and have a good laugh and a good chat."
