"Vogue" Legend Andre Leon Talley Has Passed At 73 - Andre Leon Talley has died. According to a source with direct knowledge, the 73-year-old passed away yesterday at a hospital in White Plains, New York. At this point, no cause of death was disclosed.  Mr. Talley was a towering figure – both literally and figuratively – in the world of fashion. The six-foot-six icon wrote about fashion at a number of publications – including “Women’s Wear Daily,” “W,” and “The New York Times.” But “Vogue” was where he solidified his reputation as a force of style. He served as the publication’s news director, creative director, and editor-at-large, working closely with the notorious editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour.  Andre was instrumental in getting more models and fashion designers of color on the runway and in the magazines. At one point, he even served as a stylist for President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama and a judge on “America’s Next Top Model.”  Source: TMZ


Jesse Williams' Divorce Getting Uglier As Ex Moves To Kill Joint Custody - Jesse Williams and Aryn Drake-Lee’s custody battle has taken a turn for the worse. She’s filed paperwork to strip him of joint custody.  According to the paperwork, Aryn says that the former “Greys Anatomy” star fails to follow the schedule that’s currently in place. She says that their current situation –which is significantly different from the original agreement they had – has resulted in increased inconsistency, longer absences, regular last-minute cancelations, and other issues which are incredibly disruptive to the children’s lives.  Aryn is requesting primary custody where Jesse would have visitation on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th weekends of each month. In addition, she wants him to turn over detailed future filming project schedules to allow her time to plan. So far, he hasn’t responded to her petition.  Source: Radar Online


Criss Angel Announces His Son Is In Remission! - Criss Angel shared the happy news that his seven-year-old song Johnny Crisstopher is in remission from cancer! Johnny was diagnosed with cancer back in 2015. A note to viewers said that Johnny Crisstopher in 2015 was diagnosed with cancer. Criss shared the news on both YouTube and Instagram, along with a short movie that documents Johnny's journey.  Criss first posted writing,  "This is the most important post I have ever made - PLEASE share this with everyone. TODAY OUR SON JOHNNY CRISSTOPHER WILL FINALLY RING THE BELL SYMBOLIZING HIS REMISSION AND THE END OF HIS TREATMENT!  NO NETWORK OR STREAMING PLATFORM WILL AIR THE SHORT FILM WE MADE DOCUMENTING HIS JOURNEY - “1095” - because of the subject matter… but this is real life!"  He then asked his followers to share the link to "1095" on social media to help raise awareness and funds to help other children. The film is 13-minutes long and is filled with images from hospital stays, Criss and Shaunyl Benson getting emotional while talking about all the chemo Johnny went through, and even Johnny's doctor talking about the scope of childhood cancer. The name "1095" comes from the 1,095 chemotherapy sessions Johnny underwent to treat his type of B-Cell A.L.L. Leukemia.


Jessica Chastain Says Rough Upbringing Made Her Stronger - Jessica Chastain is opening up about her childhood, and how it made her stronger today. She grew up with a single mom and four siblings. Jessica was a child of a teenage pregnancy. Her family had financial hardships often, too. She had to work at a performing arts school because "there was no way my family could afford" the classes otherwise.  Jessica shares, “There were people that saw I was struggling as a kid, and they helped me. And that’s why I ended up where I am now.” She also is grateful to "Planned Parenthood" and birth control for giving her options she may not have otherwise had. “I’m the first person in my family to not be pregnant when I was 17. It had a great impact on my life because it gave me choice."  She added, “It makes me sick to even say this, but I never think in terms of ‘How do I get more things in this industry?’ I have a rebellious streak because I grew up with a lot of resentment, because we didn’t have things, like even food... I don’t talk about it much, but it was really, it was not what you would expect."  Jessica also shared that she doesn't want others to go through what she went through. "So because I come from that place, I know what it’s like. And it makes me angry. And I don’t [want] anyone else to be denied anything. In terms of a voice, being seen, being acknowledged and valued.”


Louis Anderson Battling Cancer - Louie Anderson is battling cancer. He’s currently in a Las Vegas hospital being treated for diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, the most common type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma.  According to the comedian’s spokesperson, while the cancer is aggressive, it’s potentially curable. He’s resting comfortably in his hospital bed as he is being treated.  We’re wishing him a speedy recovery.


Sources: Jason Momoa/Lisa Bonet Split A Case Of Distance - While Lisa Bonet and Jason Momoa’s split came as a surprise to all of us, it was apparently a long time coming. According to a source close to her, the two, who were together for almost 17 years –including five years of marriage – were “amazing for years until they no longer were.”   Jason and Lisa reportedly grew apart because of different focuses. Since he was out of work for a number of years, he wants to take advantage of his current success and keep working. Meanwhile, she has no interest in joining him on every location. And while Lisa enjoys her life in Los Angeles, the toll of being apart broke their marriage apart.  And don’t expect a messy divorce from the Momoas. “They are both very spiritual and believe in a higher power,” the source said. Plus, Jason and Lisa are mature and will keep peace for the sake of their children, 14-year-old Lola and 13-year-old Nakoa-Wolf.


Lego Sued Over Leather Jacket On "Queer Eye" Toy Of Antoni Porowski - A new lawsuit is claiming that Lego has copied "Queer Eye's" Antoni Prowski's one-of-a-kind leather jacket. In the complaint, artist James Concannon says that Lego "intentionally" and "painstakingly" copied the jacket he created just for Antoni. He also alleges that he didn't get any notice or compensation from Lego.  The suit also says that Lego supposedly offered him “a free Fab 5 Loft set – which retails for $99.99 – for [his] 6-year-old son to play with" to make amends, "only to later revoke that offer, telling [him] that Lego does not give away its products for free." James is now suing Lego for copyright infringement.  The court docs show that Antoni has worn a lot of his pieces and Netflix got clearance from James for all of them except one... this leather jacket for Antoni to wear during the season of filming four. James "figured this was simply an oversight on Netflix's part" at the time, but now, he's claiming that it's not a coincidence.  He's admitting he didn't make Netflix get a license to display the jacket, but that he's “certainly never agreed to allow Lego — the largest toy company in the world, with over $5 billion in annual revenue — to commercially exploit his artwork for free." James wants an unspecified amount for “all damages [he] suffered and for any profits or gain by [Lego] that is attributable to” their infringement.

Adele Earning Big Bucks For Las Vegas Residency, Which Opens Friday - Adele’s Las Vegas residency, “Weekends With Adele,” kicks off Friday at the Colosseum at Caesar's Palace, and we can certainly understand why she agreed to do it.  According to a report in “The Sun” the singer is said to be earning almost $680,000 per show, making her one of the highest paid female performers in Las Vegas. She will also get a cut of sales, as well as merchandise.  And Adele is also getting tons of perks from Caesar’s, where the show is taking place. She’ll be put up in a $40,000-a-night private suite at the hotel, which includes a butler, executive assistant, chauffeur and security. Plus, Adele and her guests will eat and drink for free at any Caesar’s resort.  “Adele is the hottest ticket in Las Vegas right now and she’s raking in a pretty penny from it,” a source shares. “Caesars has rolled out the red carpet to ensure she’s treated like the superstar she is.”

Meanwhile, a lot of fans were left out in the cold when tickets to the residency sold out fast, but it turns out there still are lots of seats available…if you’ve got a lot of money to spare. Right now there are plenty of tickets for the pricier seats available on the resale site Via Gogo. In fact, there are over 100 orchestra seats available, although they cost $600 each. This could be good news for fans who were lucky enough to get cheaper seats. If the expensive seats don’t sell, it’s possible Caesars may offer upgrades to keep the front of the house from looking empty.

Who does that?” he asked.

It's a tricky one."  Rupert also shared that the Harry Potter movies are so ingrained in him that he measures his life in them. "I can't believe it started 20 years ago.

It is hard to keep connections with those in my life I love and it is also hard to put in an honest day's work."  He then continued, saying, "I think just because you might be good at something, for me, it is not a strong enough reason to do that. You have to have passion for it. You have to have a fuel for it. It's like saying to someone 'you are pretty good with your hands, you would be a good carpenter.' But if I want to be an actor, I'll be an actor."
