CHRISTINA ANSTEAD ADMITS SHE DIDN'T PLAN FOR THIS: Christina Anstead is getting real after sharing the news that she is getting a second divorce, this time from Ant Anstead after welcoming a baby boy named Hudson with him a year ago. In a selfie on IG, she wrote: "I never thought about being on TV. I wanted to be a sports agent like Jerry Maguire. But I always loved looking at houses with my parents especially model homes and I always wanted to be my own boss. So in college when I was called (intuitively) to get my real estate license at a local community college I followed my intuition. I got started in real estate at 21 which led to selling houses which led to flipping houses which led to TV." She continued: "I never thought I would have one divorce let alone two. I never thought I would have 2 baby daddies – but sometimes life throws us curve balls. Instead of getting stuck in these ‘setbacks', I choose to look at these challenges as opportunities to grow. So while some may judge me and throw around rumors about me, most of you support me. And that says a lot about this world and where we are headed. I'm messy, I'm real and I'm working on healing. I'm surrounded by extremely powerful women who help me cope, build me up and push me to be better."

KIT HARINGTON AND ROSE LESLIE EXPECTING FIRST CHILD: Kit Harington and Rose Leslie are expecting their first child. The Game of Thrones star shared the good news in the lastest episode of Make Magazine. The 33-year-old reflected on the Tudor manor house she and Harington moved into in East Anglia: "It's incredibly old. We have a thatched roof, which currently has an enormous hornet's nest in it. I do love to think about the house and all the people who have lived there. Were they happy, how did they live? All the families passing under those ancient beams. What a glorious thing to be able to run to the countryside and recoup. It's a great privilege to be surrounded by greenery, birdsong and hedgerows, and our delightful neighbors. It's so peaceful."

GIGI HADID WELCOMES BABY ON FARM? Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik welcomed their baby girl on her farm in rural Pennsylvania, insiders tell Page Six. The trio have been isolating there since May; their baby arrived September 19th. In recent months, the pair have also been splitting their time between Pennsylvania and Manhattan.

DID MEGHAN AND HARRY VIOLATE MEGXIT AGREEMENT? Prince Harry and Meghan Markle violated their royal exit deal, according to a report in The Sunday Times. The pair called on American voters last week "reject hate speech, misinformation and online negativity" in "the most important election of our lifetime." Now, "the royal family are all wringing their hands, thinking: where is this going and does this abide by the deal to uphold the values of the Queen?" a royal aide told the outlet. "The feeling is it's a violation of the agreement."

DREW BARRYMORE REUNITES WITH TOM GREEN: Drew Barrymore reunited with her ex-husband Tom Green, after not speaking with him since their 2002 divorce. The 49-year-old comedian joined Barrymore on her eponymous talk show Friday. The 45-year-old host said she felt "safety" and "contentedness" during her relationship with him. "When you say 20 years, sometimes it's the blink of an eye and sometimes you're like, ‘Oh my God. We've lived so much in these last 20 years,'" she said. "You've had a whole life and I've had a whole life, and it's just really nice to come together and check in and talk about it. It thrills me to no end. I think the world of you and I celebrate you and I always have and I always will." He said: "It's been too long, it's nice to reconnect. We really did not talk for about 15 years, I guess, and this is really the first time we've looked at each other face to face in 15 years."


Ben Affleck has moved into the $20 million home he purchased after his official split from Jennifer Garner in 2018. He plans to have his "fiancée-in-waiting" Ana de Armas join him there as well, sources tell The Sun.

The 13,453 square foot spread in the Pacific Palisades has been set up with a children's playground, with swings, a pool with a built-in slide, a trampoline, a pro-ping pong table and an outdoor BBQ area. He shares daughters Violet, 14, and Seraphina, 11, and Samuel, 8, with Garner.

"This house has become Ben's sanctuary, and it's been the ideal place for him to make a totally fresh start," the source told the Sun. "The kids spend a ton of time there and Ben has decked it out to incorporate his clean lifestyle plus offer them features to make it lots of fun when they come over."

All told, there are seven bedrooms, seven full baths, two half baths, an indoor spa, a screening room and other amenities.

"There's a lot of talk that Ben and Ana will make things official soon, and that this will serve as their main LA home," the source told The Sun. "They spend a ton of time here at the moment, although Ana has still kept her place in Venice Beach. But they're head over heels in love and in this for the long term, so their mutual friends are convinced it's just a matter of timing before they're engaged."


Dwayne Johnson, long thought to have presidential ambitions of his own, announced his choice for president and vice president on Sunday. He announced his decision on social media, in a video that documented his decision making process, and a virtual conversation with the candidates.

Johnson introduced the conversation, saying: "I'm going to be pushing this political conversation just a little bit more. Look, I've got friends in all parties, but the one thing we can always agree on is the conversation and the dialogue, and where that conversation lands is always the most critical part. Now, this is something that I've certainly not done in the past, so I'm going to go big. You guys know me, if I go, I go big! So guys I had the opportunity to sit down with Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Kamala Harris to talk about a number of important issues we're facing as a country. I thought it was a great and extremely productive conversation. As a registered Independent for years now with centrist ideologies, I do feel that Vice President Biden and Sen. Harris are the best choice to lead our country, and I am endorsing them to become president and vice president of our United States."

Johnson moved onto what he sees as their strengths and qualifications. "You've led, in my opinion, with great compassion and heart and drive, but also soul," he said of Biden.

To Harris, Johnson said: "You've been an attorney, a district attorney, a state attorney, a U.S. senator, smart, tough – I've seen you in those hearings – and, in my opinion, you are a certified bada--."

He asked them: "Joe, you and I have talked about the relationship that you had with your father. This idea of respect and earning respect that our parents have taught us. My dad always said, 'Respect is given when it is earned.' How will the both of you earn the respect of all the American people once you're in the White House?"

Biden said: "By doing what we say we're going to do. By keeping our word. By leveling with the American people. By taking responsibility. When we fail, acknowledge it. We're not going to be perfect, but take responsibility. Say, 'This is what I'm going to do, this is what I believe and tell the truth.' That sounds so basic, but the American people are strong, they're tough, they can take anything if you level with them, and tell the truth," he said. "And one of the ways we're going to do it is to demonstrate we mean what we say. Our administration, DJ, is going to look like America. It's going to be representative of all of America."

Harris echoed Biden's theme of honesty, telling Johnson: "As we know, the nature of trust is that, like Joe was saying and as you've said, it's a reciprocal relationship. You give and you receive trust. And one of the foundations of trust is truth. You must speak truth but here's the reality: truth can sometimes be really difficult to hear and for that reason sometimes people don't speak it. But you cannot have trust if you don't speak truth. You know that as a parent, we know that as parents, you have to speak truth. And as long as there is an understanding that it is being spoken not to confront, not to hurt, but to deal with things, the way they must be handled. That has to be part of the core of what we do as we go forward because to your point, we're facing as a country so many challenges and people are grieving. I mean, people are grieving the loss of life, the loss of jobs, the loss of certainty, the loss of normalcy and to heal and get through this we're gonna have to be honest about what healing will require. That's one of the things that Joe and I really do have in common, which is we're motivated by healing, but we know to do that, we have to be honest about what it's going to take."

Several celebrities, including Stephen Curry, Eva Longoria, Kerry Washington and Julia Louis-Dreyfus, have endorsed Biden, and even made appearances at the virtual Democratic convention in August.

On Tuesday, Biden and Trump will hold their first presidential debate. Fox News' Chris Wallace will moderate.



After 16 years of sobriety, Dax Shepard relapsed. The Parenthood actor said on his Armchair Expert podcast: "So eight years into sobriety, I have not done a single shady thing. There was nothing gray."

But then his dad got sick, and he got into a motorcycle accident. He said: "I immediately called my sponsor and I said, ‘I'm in a ton of pain and I got to work all day, and we have friends that have Vicodin.' And he said, ‘Okay, you can take a couple Vicodin to get through the day at work but you have to go to the doctor, and you have to get a prescription and you have to have Kristen Bell dole out the prescription.'"

At first it was fine, but then he became responsible for making sure his dad got his meds. And he brought his own stash as his wife Bell couldn't join him.

"So I give him a bunch of Percocet and then I go, I have a prescription for this, and I was in a motorcycle accident, and I'm gonna take some too," Shepard recounted, noting that he "probably took twice of what my other prescription was."

When he saw Bell the next day, he was honest about what happened, and she told him to call AA.

"She's like, ‘You clearly need to call someone in AA, but I would say you're f— up from this accident, you got high with your dad, keep it moving. You don't need to redefine it. you didn't lose eight years, which was so comforting," he said.

"So that was eight years ago," he explained. "And now I have this experience where I did that, I felt bad, but there wasn't really any fallout from it."

"Then I get hurt again," Shepard continued, noting that while he was never self-administering his prescribed medication, he began altering when he would take the the pills. "Maybe I don't want to take them at night because I can't sleep when I take them, so when I get my two at night I don't actually eat them and I keep them for tomorrow morning so I can make it the dose I want to be."

This year, after breaking his hand in an ATV accident and getting hammered in a motorcycle accident, he said he began getting "shadier and shadier," purchasing his own pills.

The "worst moment of his life," he said, was celebrating his 16th year of sobriety this year while high.

Shepard shared that while he's still "very proud" of his 16 years of sobriety from alcohol and cocaine, he has "not been sober in the way I would like to be sober, where you don't have secrets and you're not afraid to tell people about the grey area you're going through."

He apologized for going public with it. "Kristen doesn't deserve for the next six months for every f— interview she does to be, 'Oh, Dax relapsed,'" he continued. "It doesn't feel fair to anyone — it's not. I'm sorry and embarrassed that I've put other people in this situation."


Baby makes four for Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel. After months of rumors, Timberlake's fellow NSYNC group member Lance Bass confirmed that the pair welcomed a second child earlier this year.

"The baby is cute of course, it's Justin and Jessica!" Bass told ET's Katie Krause on Friday while chatting about his podcast, The Daily Popcast. While Bass wouldn't go into detail about Timberlake and Biel's second child, he did share that the *NSYNC members knew before everyone else and their group chat is now all about babies and the newborn.

He LOL'd when asked what the name was. "That's a good question," adding, "Justin would kill me!"

In July, reports emerged that Biel gave birth to their second child, a boy, but the private couple has not confirmed the reports. The 39-year-old singer and 38-year-old already share the 5-year-old Silas. In November, Timberlake made headlines for all the wrong reasons when he was photographed snuggling up late night with his Palmer co-star Alisha Wainwright at a bar in New Orleans. He later apologized publicly to Biel on social media: "A few weeks ago I displayed a strong lapse in judgment -- but let me be clear -- nothing happened between me and my costar. I drank way too much that night and I regret my behavior."

A few months later, the pair appeared to have patched over any issues, posting sweet shots to each other on social media.


Jordyn Woods has opened up about her 2019 scandal with Tristan Thompson, saying that in the aftermath, she was in a dark place. In an interview with Now With Natalie, she said, "I had my family to talk to, I had you to talk to, but I just felt like I had no one." She continued, "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?' 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."

Woods also revealed that she isolated herself after the incident saying, "I deleted everything off of my 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."

Woods continued, "It's easy to beat yourself up over things that you could have done differently. But 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."

Woods also revealed that she has some regrets after the incident, saying, "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 something bad to anyone I love. I wouldn't say I'm happy something like that happened, but I'm happy I was able to become who I am today."


The Robert Pattinson-toplined Tenet is topping the box office again, but these days, that's nothing to brag about. It's fourth weekend out saw $3.4 million in sales, bringing its 25-day haul to $41.2 million domestically, making it the lowest-chart-topping total for any film in almost 32 years.

As of now, about 75% of theaters are open, but some of the largest markets—including NYC and LA—remain shuttered. About 85% of Tenet's total $242M take comes from overseas.

AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS RESTARTS: The David Tennant-toplined production of the Jules Verne classic is restarting shoots in Romania and South Africa, Variety reports. "We are over the moon to be re-commencing filming on Around the World in 80 Days," said Crawford Collins, who is executive producing. "This project is such a challenging and ambitious series to put together, so it has required a huge amount of support on all fronts to pull it off. We couldn't have achieved it without our wonderful production team, our stellar cast, our super supportive broadcasters and financiers, the inventiveness of our directors, and the ingenuity of our wonderful writing team led by Ashley Pharoah," said Collins.

FAMILY GUY CASTS NEW CLEVELAND: YouTuber Arif Zahir will take over the role of Cleveland Brown for Fox's Family Guy in its 19th season. This comes amid a call for non-white actors to voice characters of color on animated series. Mike Henry said in June that he was stepping down from the role. "Firstly, I'm eternally grateful to have received this once in a lifetime opportunity," said Zahir. "When I heard that Mike Henry was stepping down from the role of Cleveland Brown — my favorite cartoon character of all time — I was shocked and saddened, assuming we'd never see him again. When I learned I would get to take over the role? Overabundant gratitude. To Mike, you created something truly special and I promise I will do my absolute best to honor your legacy. To Rich Appel, Alec Sulkin and Seth MacFarlane, thank you for this incredible gift. And to the millions of fans who love this show, I promise not to let you down."

THE SIMPSONS DIVERSIFIES: Following up on its pledge to bring in non-white actors to voice characters of color, The Simpsons is bringing in Alex Désert to voice Carl Carlson, Homer's (Dan Castellaneta) nuclear plant co-worker, in Sunday's season premiere on Fox. Hank Azaria previously played the part.
