Portia de Rossi thanks fans for support amid Ellen DeGeneres controversy

While Ellen DeGeneres continues to fight off allegations of demeaning behavior toward staff and even guests, Portia is publicly coming to her aid.

On Monday, the "Arrested Development" actress posted an Instagram that read, "I STAND BY ELLEN." 

"To all our fans….we see you. Thank you for your support. #stopbotattacks," Portia captioned the post, adding a slew of hashtags, including "I Stand With Ellen DeGeneres," "I Stand By Ellen," "I Stand By Ellen DeGeneres" and Ellen's catchphrase "Be Kind to One Another."

The catchphrase has essentially been ridiculed for months as staff and former guests have said Ellen is anything but "kind" behind the scenes. Since March, a barrage of less-than-flattering stories have been shared about the host of the "The Ellen DeGeneres Show."

The backlash and allegations of workplace hostility have become so severe that WarnerMedia had launched an internal investigation into conditions at Ellen's eponymous talk show.

WarnerMedia, which owns Warner Bros. Television, the distributor of Ellen's show, sent a memo to staffers indicating that current and former employees would be asked about their experiences on set, Variety reported. The interviews will be conducted by WarnerMedia's employee relations group and a third party firm.

On July 30, just hours before BuzzFeed News published a story claiming the talk show is rife with sexual harassment and misconduct by top executive producers, Ellen issued an apology for unspecified transgressions and promised to "correct the issues."

In the letter, which was obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, Ellen explained that she's now realized the show hadn't been "a place of happiness" for some staffers. 

"As we've grown exponentially, I've not been able to stay on top of everything and relied on others to do their jobs as they knew I'd want them done. Clearly some didn't. That will now change and I'm committed to ensuring this does not happen again," she wrote.

After referencing the struggles she faced after coming out as a gay woman in the '90s, she said, "It's been way too long, but we're finally having conversations about fairness and justice. We all have to be more mindful about the way our words and actions affect others, and I'm glad the issues at our show were brought to my attention. I promise to do my part in continuing to push myself and everyone around me to learn and grow. It's important to me and to Warner Bros. that everyone who has something to say can speak up and feels safe doing so."

Kim Kardashian's BFF claims he was robbed at gunpoint

Jonathan Cheban, a fixture on "Keeping Up With The Kardashians," claims that he was robbed at gunpoint over the weekend in New Jersey.

TMZ said that Kim Kardashian's BFF told authorities that he was hanging out in the driveway of a friend's home with his mom on Sunday night when a man approached and asked for the time. The man quickly pulled out a gun and pointed it at Jonathan, his mother and his friend.

Jonathan told police that the man moved the trio between cars to trap them while the gun was squarely pointed at his mother's head. After pleading with the gunman to release them, Jonathan gave the man his Richard Mille watch, which is reportedly worth about $250,000.

A second gunman was also reportedly on scene as a lookout. 

The incident ended after neighbors heard the commotion and began investigating. The men, neither of whom were apparently wearing masks, quickly ran off on foot, TMZ report says.

Jonathan is expected to meet with police to come up with a sketch of the crooks.

According to his Instagram Story, Jonathan was shopping with his mother earlier in the day.

Brian Austin Green dishes on post-marriage love life: 'It sucks'

While Megan Fox quickly found love after her split from Brian Austin Green, his dating life hasn't been quite as successful.

"It sucks," the "90210" star said of his suddenly public love life, while speaking to the Hollywood Raw with Dax Holt and Adam Glyn podcast. "What people normally do when they get out of something is they date. They talk to multiple people at once, some people use dating apps, they talk to multiple people, they go on multiple dates, they spend time with people until you feel a connection with somebody then something builds from there."

"What's unfortunate for me in this situation is I'll literally go on one date with someone, not even a date, just out to lunch with somebody and it's written, 'his new fling, he's playing two women at the same time,'" he said. "No. I literally spent one time with each of these women. I'm not playing anybody. My life is just much more under a microscope than somebody else's."

After splitting with Megan (who has gone on to date Machine Gun Kelly), Brian has been seen with Courtney Stodden and model Tina Louise, both of whom he says he met on Instagram.

"I remember when I hung out with Courtney getting a call from somebody afterward saying, 'There are pictures of you and Courtney Stodden,' and I was like 'How do you know her name?' I had no idea who she was or any of the past anything," he said. "I had done no research at all. It wasn't until I was told, 'This is the past, this is who this person is, this is what you might have to experience.'"

Brian now says he's wishes he was aware of Courtney's past before the date.

"Courtney was a really nice person though, I don't want to bad mouth her, she may have done some of the things she's done, been the person she's been, is the person she is but when I spent time with her, super kind, super polite," he continued.

The actor did acknowledge that he felt "betrayed" by her when she posted a video of them from a hot tub, a video he says was posted "out of context."

The video had an adverse effect on his short-lived romance with Tina, as well.

"So, Tina is really cool. Tina is really an intelligent woman. She is the one who approached me and she said to me, 'With the craziness going around you and Megan and the whole situation, I think what would be best for you is to take some time with just your kids and yourself and really work on just being alone and healing yourself. And going through that,'" he said. "That was cool coming from her. She didn't need to say something like that, she didn't have to say something that would exclude so much from my life."

He added, "I've been single this whole time. Dating, I guess. I'm open to meeting somebody but my focus is on myself and healing with all of this and my kids and them experiencing it the best way that they can," he explained. "I can't really put a label on what I'm doing, it's different. What I'm doing compared to how it's been portrayed are two completely different things."

Gisele Bundchen pens birthday love note to 'best friend' Tom Brady

Gisele Bundchen is throwing a lot of birthday love to her husband Tom Brady, who was celebrating his 43rd birthday. 

On Monday, the supermodel took to Instagram to gush about the NFL stud, sharing one image of the quarterback relaxing outdoors, and another photo with their two children, Benjamin, 10, and Vivian, 7.

"Happy birthday love of my life!" Gisele captioned the photo. "You are the best dad , the best partner and the best friend. We are so lucky to have you in our lives and we are looking forward to all the adventures ahead. We love you so much!"

Seeing the tribute, Tom replied, "I love my family and thanks for always taking care of us! We are so blessed!"

Along with several heart emojis, he added, "Can't wait to have you home."

"Home" for the time being is Florida, following the two-year, $50 million contract Tom signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers earlier this year. While waiting for the 2020 football season to start, TB12 rented Derek Jeter's 30,000-square-foot mansion.

Year of the mobile quarterback…

A post shared by Tom Brady (@tombrady) on

While Monday was a day of celebration and love, Tom was gently ribbed on social media just days before for one of his accessories.

On Saturday, Tom shared a photo from inside his car to indicate the 99-degree temperature. Many fans overlooked the temperature and the Michael Jackson song he was listening to after noticing that Tom still uses an iPhone 6+, which came out six years ago.

"Tom Brady, the most successful athlete in football, still only has an iPhone 6+???" one person said. Another added, "Tom Brady has all the money in the world and he still has an iPhone 6+.. the ones that malfunction and die if it's under or over 70 degrees."

There is a theory that Tom knows exactly what he's doing, and the "6+" is a nod to his Super Bowl rings.

'Uphill battle'

Kim Kardashian, Kanye West trying to save marriage with family vacation: Report

Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West are working to save their six-year marriage, a new report claims. But it's a "massive uphill battle," TMZ reports.

Matt Baron/Shutterstock

In July — amid reports that he and Kim were having problems and that he was in the midst of a bipolar episode — the rapper-designer tweeted and deleted that he'd been "trying to get divorced" for months.

Then Kanye — who on July 19 shocked fans when he revealed during his first presidential campaign rally that he and Kim had initially planned to abort their eldest child, 7-year-old daughter North West — publicly apologized to the reality TV star and beauty brand mogul. He tweeted on July 25, "I would like to apologize to my wife Kim for going public with something that was a private matter. I did not cover her like she has covered me. To Kim I want to say I know I hurt you. Please forgive me. Thank you for always being there for me."

After days of reportedly being ghosted by her husband, Kim flew to see Kanye in Cody, Wyoming — where he's been living on his $14 million ranch — and was photographed in the midst of what appeared to be a heated discussion with the music star on July 27. Photos of Kim in the car with Kanye show her crying.

On Aug. 2, photos emerged showing Kanye and son Saint boarding a private plane in Wyoming and hours later, TMZ — citing sources close to the West family — reported that Kim and Kanye are taking "a private family vacation to try and work things out." According to TMZ, the vacation is something the couple talked about when Kim was in Wyoming days earlier.

Aside from this family getaway, TMZ writes, "Kim and Kanye hadn't spent much time together outside family birthdays and holidays." The couple — who reunited in Wyoming for North's birthday in June — have not, TMZ explains, "seen each other much at all for months" as Kanye's been at his ranch and Kim's been based in California with their four children.

According to TMZ, this vacation "will be a time for [Kanye] to prove … he's willing to change for his family."

Twin Deliveries!

Nikki Bella welcomed her son one day before twin sister Brie Bella gave birth

Talk about twinning! Following Sunday's news Brie Bella and Daniel Bryan welcomed a baby boy on Saturday, Brie's twin sister Nikki Bella announced she and her fiance, Artem Chigvintsev, became parents to a son of their own just one day prior.

"7/31/2020 … Our baby boy is here and we couldn't be HAPPIER and more in LOVE!" Nikki, 36, wrote on Instagram Sunday, posting a shot of her own hand entwined with those of Artem, 38, and their little one. The picture mirrored the one Brie had shared less than two hours earlier.

"Everyone is safe and healthy," Nikki added.

The "Total Bellas" stars revealed in January that they were due within two weeks of one another.

"Knowing us our babies will come the same day too lol!!!" Brie joked to Nikki on Instagram after their pregnancy announcements.

Brie, who also shares a 3-year-old daughter, Birdie, with her husband Daniel, acknowledged to People earlier this year that some fans would probably assume their joint stork news was "planned." She said it was not and that the subs were "shocked" to find out they'd be welcoming kids at almost the same time.

The sisters have spent much of the past nine months sharing twin-updates on social media with their fans. Nikki, who is a first-time mom, has especially seemed to relish the experience of being pregnant at the same time as her sister.

While Brie and Daniel chose not to learn their baby's gender ahead of time, Nikki and Artem found out they were having a boy in June.

Congrats all around!

Teresa Giudice's daughters cancel plans to visit Joe in Italy

With the coronavirus pandemic still raging across the U.S., it's unlikely Joe Giudice will see his four daughters anytime soon.

Curtis Means/Ace Pictures/REX/Shutterstock

According to Hollywood Life, Gia Giudice, 19, Gabriella Giudice, 16, Milania Giudice, 15 and Audriana Giudice, 11, were supposed to travel to Italy next week to see their dad, who's been living there while appealing a 2018 deportation order.

RELATED: Teresa Giudice reunites with Caroline Manzo after long feud

Thanks to a maze of pandemic-related travel restrictions on Americans and their mom, Teresa Giudice's concern for their health, however, the girls' trip appears to have been canceled.

"Teresa's daughters are really disappointed they can't go to Italy to see Joe in August," a source close to the family tells the outlet. The insider adds that, "Teresa's biggest concern is obviously COVID and the kids."

RELATED: Stars we've lost to the coronavirus

Last week, the European Union extended its ban on the entry of travelers from the United States. And while some loopholes allow family members to visit relatives, the girls don't appear to qualify, based on current restrictions.

Prior to Joe's relocation, he served 41 months in prison on fraud charges. Although he'd spent his life since age 1 in the U.S., he was born in Italy and never technically acquired American citizenship. The felonies on his record made him subject to deportation — and he has so far lost three appeals in his fight to return home.

The "Real Housewives of New Jersey" stars are still reportedly optimistic they'll be able to reunite with Joe in October, though.

That's when he's slated to participate in a celebrity boxing match against Ojani Noa (Jennifer Lopez's ex-husband) in the Bahamas. Teresa, who joined her kids on a trip to see Joe in November, is expected to go, as well.

A Bahamas trip seems slightly more feasible than Italy, but it's not without complications. After previously barring Americans from entering the country, the Bahamas recently announced it will allow travelers from the U.S. to visit as long as they apply for a health visa, test negative for COVID-19 within 10 days of their trip and quarantine for two weeks upon arrival, according to USA Today.

"It's all still up in the air and that's really upsetting for the girls," says HL's source. "They haven't seen their dad in months and this is really, really hard for them."

In the meantime, they're making the best of a rough summer, courtesy of some family time on the New Jersey coast.

Brie Bella and Daniel Bryan welcome their second child

The Bella family keeps on growing!

"Total Bellas" star Brie Bella, 36, and her husband, Daniel Bryan, 39, announced on Instagram Sunday that their second child was born over the weekend.

"It's a BOY!!! 💙 8-1-2020," the former WWE wrestler posted, sharing a photo of the little one as she held him in her arms. In the sweet photo, she also holds hands with Daniel as their baby clutches on to his mama's fingers.

"We are overwhelmed with joy and everyone is healthy!!!" she added.

Less than two hours after Brie's announcement, her twin sister and "Total Bellas" costar, Nikki Bella, revealed she had some baby news, too. Turns out Nikki and her fiance, "Dancing With the Stars" pro Artem Chigvintsev, welcomed their first child together on Friday.

Brie and Daniel's new baby boy joins 3-year-old big sister, Birdie Joe.

Speaking to Nikki on the twins' podcast last year, Brie revealed she'd struggled with postpartum depression after giving birth to Birdie. "I didn't want to lose the old Brie and I really didn't want to lose my identity," she said at the time.

Eventually, the depression passed and she and Daniel decided they wanted to have another child.

As Brie would later recount to People, she and Daniel tried to conceive for the better part of a year with no luck. Brie said she'd she'd started to believe a sibling for Birdie was simply not in the cards — then, in 2019, she found out she was pregnant.

In a joint announcement in January, Brie and Nikki revealed that both twins were expecting — and due within two weeks of one another.

"This life just wants you and I to be twinning at everything we do," Nikki joked to Brie on Instagram after their baby news reveal.

All Apologies

Terry Crews apologizes to Gabrielle Union again for lack of 'AGT' support

Terry Crews wonders if three will be the magic number of apologies needed to win Gabrielle Union's forgiveness.

AFF-USA/Shutterstock

On Saturday, Crews responded to the latest comments Union made about his failure to support her when she came forward with "America's Got Talent" discrimination claims prior to her firing from the show.

"This will be my 3rd public apology to Gabrielle Union," he tweeted. "If a 4th is needed, I will continue to apologize and push for reconciliation between the world, and more importantly, the culture I grew up in. I'm sorry, @itsgabrielleu #reconciliation."

Crews' apology comes after Union criticized him on last week's edition of Jemele Hill's podcast, saying that he has not been an "ally" in the fight for equality within their industry — a fight Union took on when she spoke out about the racism and misogyny she experienced on the set of "AGT."

Rather than back her claims about the work environment at the NBC series, Crews went so far as to essentially deny them, saying the toxicity Union described on set was "never" his experience. Rather, he called "AGT" the "most diverse place I have ever been in my 20 years of entertainment."

RELATED: ICYMI: The biggest TV news for July 2020

Union, who has previously slammed Crews for his response to her allegations, implied again on Hill's podcast that Crews was protecting his career rather than considering the larger issues at hand.

"People hit me all day long and are like, what's happening? And the only thing I know for sure is that Terry Crews gets three checks from NBC. So, I don't know if being worried about job stability — which listen, we all know that if you speak up about racism and white supremacy, you absolutely can be shown the door," Union told Hill, according to ET.

Based on his recent actions, do you really think Terry Crews was an ally, was helpful, was a sounding board?" she asked.

"I think Terry Crews is showing us who he is and what he does during times of adversity and it's not solidarity."

Union also sounded frustrated that Crews wouldn't support her after she stood by him when alleged he was sexually assaulted in 2017.

Seemingly referencing a tweet he posted in January that read, "Just 'cuz you gave me eggs — don't mean I owe you bacon," she told Hill, "Not to say if I offer you solidarity I expect you to be the getaway driver during a bank robbery — that's what he made it sound like in one of those series of tweets."

Though Crews initially defended himself on social media, he has since acknowledged he could have handled the situation better and apologized directly to Union.

In June, he told ET it was hard for him to see that she and he could have had different experiences on the same show.

"I had to understand that I'm looking at this thing from a lens of male privilege, where men and women are treated differently on sets," he said at the time.

AFF-USA/Shutterstock

Crews' recent mea culpas don't seem to have changed Union's mind about him, though.

"If you saw something, say something," the actress told Hill last week.

"If you didn't have my experience … you also have an option to say, 'I believe Gab, I just had a different experience.' End of story. You don't have to do a press tour where your sole objective is to discredit and malign me. You know, I've been in Hollywood a very long time. There's very little that surprises me, but that was very disappointing for sure."
