So the big question on everyone's mind heading into this weekends 50th annual NAACP Image Awards was whether or not Jussie Smollett was going to show up and if he would win in the category she was nominated. Jussie was not there, and he did end up losing the award for best-supporting actor in a television drama to "Grey's Anatomy" star Jesse Williams.

As we previously told you, Spice Girls Mel B revealed in a recent interview that she had a saucy encounter with band mate Geri Halliwell during their Spice Girls heyday, and while she tried to play it off something that only happened “one night,” a new report claims it actually was much more than that. A source told The Daily Mail the relationship actually lasted at least a year, sharing, “It was in the very early days of the Spice Girls and their relationship lasted far longer than one night – it was at least 12 months. They deeply bought into the whole Girl Power phenomenon – they wanted to lead it. They felt what better way was there to do that than for girls to enjoy one another?” The insider described the relationship as “lust at first sight,” adding they were “absolutely inseparable…They were together in every sense of the word.” Meanwhile, according to the Daily Mail, the only real reason the Spice Girls are going back on tour again is to help Mel B financially, following her very costly divorce from husband Stephen Belafonte. The source said, “The view is that the others didn’t need to do the tour. Now Geri wonders why she bothered."

“Law & Order: SVU” has been renewed for a 21st season, which puts the NBC show on track to become the longest-running primetime live-action series in television history. The series premiered in 1999, and Mariska Hargitay has starred the whole time. It previously shared the 20-season record with the OG “Law & Order,” along with CBS’ “Gunsmoke.” Could it go on to beat “The Simpsons” for the overall longest-running show ranking? The only thing the Simpson's have for an advantage is that they never seem to age. 

We told you before that Nicolas Cage filed for an annulment four days after his marriage to girlfriend Erika Koike in Las Vegas. Now, Us Weekly has the court docs, where Nic basically says he was too drunk at the time to think about what he was doing. He claims that before getting the marriage license and walking down the Vegas aisle, he and Erika “were both drinking to the point of intoxication.” So much so, that he “lacked understanding of his actions in marrying [Koike] to the extent that he was incapable of agreeing to the marriage.” So when she suggested that they tie the knot, he just “reacted on impulse.” But there’s another side to the annulment. Nic also claims Erika didn’t disclose “the full nature and extent of her relationship with another person,” or “her criminal history” and “additional active criminal proceedings.” Yeah, there's that.  That'll do it.

RadarOnline.com claims that Jessica Simpson is so set on losing her baby weight, that she's getting her husband, Eric Johnson, to lose weight with her. According to a source, “Eric eats like a circus animal, and while he’s in charge of the grocery shopping and a lot of the cooking in the house, he’s anything but health conscious." He's got to make some changes though, because according to the source Eric “would keep indulging in junk food but Jessica is determined that they’ll both get into tip-top shape again.” 

While Kim Kardashian West is preparing for baby number four, she's getting some help from JoJo Siwa. The former "Dance Moms" star and current Nickelodeon sweetheart hosted a play date yesterday with Kim's daughter, North West. She titled her video "BABYSITTING NORTH WEST!!!"  North got to to ride down the JoJo's unicorn slide in her bedroom, and JoJo let her pick a bow from all her bow-bows. They also made a huge mess in the kitchen with glitter as they were trying to make glitter slime, which was North's favorite part of the day. JoJo even send North home with her a ticket to her upcoming concert. Now everyone's going to want JoJo to babysit!

When you put your life on the internet, someone always has something to say about it. Pink found that out the hard way. She posted a pic of her kids with her, looking at a pelican, and the first thing people noticed was that her son, Jameson, wasn't wearing any bottoms. She deleted the pic and reposted it with his privates scribbled out, but just to be sure they knew she was quite peeved about it, Pink wrote, "There's something seriously wrong with a lot of you out there. Going off about my baby's [privates]? About circumcision??? Are you for real? As any normal mother at the beach, I didn't even notice he took off his swim diaper." She added, "And now I'm turning off my comments and shaking my head at the state of social media and keyboard warriors. And the negativity that you bring to other people's lives. There is something seriously wrong with a lot of you out there. Smfh." She also wrote, "Here's a picture of the pelican we obviously caught and abused for hours before dangling baby [privates] in its face." Read more at AceShowbiz.com.

Spice Girl Mel B did an interview on Piers Morgan's "Life Stories," and she poured her heart out about how she's feeling about her fellow Spice Girl Victoria Beckham, aka Posh Spice. Mel called her a "bit of a b****", though she did say she's "gutted" Victoria won't be joining the rest of the Spice Girls on their reunion tour later this year. Mel said, "I am sad she is not going to be there, but she is busy with what she is doing with her fashion line and her family," adding, "I am gutted that she is not going to be with us, but I am still going to hold that candle and hope that she will." According to Victoria though, the girls shouldn't hold their breath. A source said, "Victoria has made it very clear she doesn't want to be part of the tour, and she just wants Mel to respect her wishes and stop banging on about it."

Former Victoria's Secret Angel Miranda Kerr is expecting her second child with husband Evan Spiegel, just ten months after giving birth to their first child. Miranda and Evan welcomed a baby boy named Hart, on May 7, 2018. Miranda is also mom to son Flynn, with her ex-husband, Orlando Bloom. 

Madonna probably isn’t all that used to hearing the word no, but it turns out that’s exactly what happened while she was trying to film a new video in Portugal. According to the New York Post, Madonna was filming a video for her new single “Indian Summer” in the Quinta Nova de Assunção palace near Sintra, and she wanted to shoot scenes of herself lying next to a horse in the atrium of the 19th century palace.  But, it turns out the Sintra Mayor Basilio Horta turned down her request, but for good reason. He said, "Under no condition could you let a horse enter the palace . . . Madonna is an artist, but the palace belongs to everyone and is not to be spoiled.” Explaining to the Lisbon paper “Expresso.” he said that “the wooden floors and beams are too weak to support the horse's weight" and added, “There are some things that money cannot buy,” While Madonna’s rep says the story isn’t true, the paper claims Madonna was furious at being told no, shooting back, “I have given so much to this country and when I ask for a simple favor, in fact to show Portugal to the world, the answer I get is negative.” But the comment was countered by Portuguese officials, who then listed off all they’ve done for her, including: expediting her residency, allowing her son to practice at the S.L. Benfica soccer club, and getting her daughters into a prestigious school even though there was a waiting list. If she's not careful, all her complaining is going to lead to an investigation, and she could end up being the next college admissions scandal story.
