Everyone's been comparing the cases of Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin, specifically, how Felicity quickly accepted guilt and will face very little jail time, possibly less than a year, while Lori is now facing 40-years for not jumping at the plea deal Felicity did. Apparently, according to sources, she thought prosecutors were bluffing about the whole "behind bars" thing. Once source said, “She has been in complete denial and thought maybe she could skate by.” In the meantime, Lori's daughters are still enrolled at the University of Southern California. According to a statement from USC, they’ve “placed holds on the accounts of students who may be associated with the alleged admissions scheme.” That means that Isabella and Olivia can’t do anything – including withdrawing – until they agree to participate in the review of their case. 

Taylor Swift reached out to a fan who was seriously injured in a car crash. Lindsay Sizemore was in a car crash at the end of March which left her with a broken back and a collapsed lung. Since she was having such a difficult time, Taylor sent her flowers and a note to cheer her up in the hospital. Lindsay wrote, “i finally stopped crying long enough to post that taylor swift just sent me flowers and a handwritten note. im still in complete utter shock. @taylorswift13 @taylornation13 thank you so much. i love you endlessly, you have NO IDEA how much this meant to me.” Taylor's note read, “Hi buddy, I'm so sorry to hear about the accident. My heart aches knowing that such a wonderful person is having to go through this. I hope these flowers brighten your day. You're gonna rock that neck brace and soon we'll all be bopping at shows together again. Give hugs to your family for me. I'm so happy you're okay. Love, Taylor."

Jennifer Lopez has finally addressed Jose Conseco’s accusation that A-Rod cheated on her with Jose's ex-wife. She said, “It doesn't matter. I know what the truth is. I know who he is. He knows who I am. We're just happy. We're not going to let other people come out and tell us what our relationship is. We know what our relationship is." 

Ryan Murphy has unveiled a teaser for the next season of FX’s “American Horror Story.” The clip reveals the title of the upcoming season, “1984.” The teaser seems inspired by classic horror movies like “Friday The 13th,” “Halloween,” and “A Nightmare On Elm Street,” showing a woman running away from a masked man with a kitchen knife. As with every other AHS season, it looks like it's going to be scary enough to make the scrunchie fly right out of your hair when you jump.

Hailey Baldwin lets her husband,  Justin Bieber, use some of her beauty products, but not all of them, and there's good reason for it. As part of her Marie Claire interview, Hailey said, “My husband, Justin, and I actually share the same Unite shampoo in our shower. We definitely don’t share skincare, though. I moisturize with a cream by Dr. Barbara Sturm that’s formulated with my blood, so I don’t think he wants to put something that was made from my body on himself.”

Betsey Johnson is recovering after undergoing successful open-heart surgery last week. And, from what we hear, she’s doing “wonderfully” so far. Her rep said, “She is so grateful for the well wishes and looks forward to her upcoming projects so she can be back with her fans." And we are looking forward to those upcoming projects (as well as her getting better).

Another live-action "Cinderella" movie is in the works. Though there have been many made-for-TV movies, there was already a live-action silver screen version starring Lily James. Apparently, we just can't have enough magic in our lives since there's talk of yet another, this time starring Havana singer Camila Cabello as Cinderella-na-na-na. 

"Modern Family" star Ariel Winter is always dealing with body-shamers, usually they're telling her she's got too much weight on her. This time, they're slamming her for losing too much weight. She explained during an Instagram Q&A , "For years I had been on anti-depressants that caused me to gain weight that I couldn't lose no matter what I did. It was always frustrating for me because I wanted to get fit and feel like the work I was doing was paying off, but never felt that way." She added, "The change in medication instantly made me drop all of the weight I couldn't lose before by just giving me back a metabolism. That was very unexpected." But she did say that she'd like to gain "a few pounds back of muscle and get healthier. Also want my butt back..." She can have some of mine if she really needs it.

She's starred in "Avatar" "Star Trek" and "Guardians of the Galaxy," but  Zoe Saldana's own mother doesn't even know who is. Why? Zoe and Thandie Newton look so much alike that Zoe's mom gets easily confused. Even though Zoe told James Corden on "The Late Late Show,"“My mom still thinks that I’m in 'Westworld.' I’m like, ‘Years ago, you thought that I was in 'Traffic.‘' I’m like, ‘Mom, you did not give birth to Thandie Newton, and then again, she was like, ‘Your show is on HBO!’ And I was like, ‘Which one?’ She goes, ‘Westworld!' I was like, ‘When are you going to understand I am not Thandie Newton!'” Even other people confuse her with Thandie. Thandie once shared a story on "The Graham Norton Show" about the time she first met Victoria Beckham last year; “We were chatting away when she said, ‘It’s so great that you are here when you are pregnant.’ I said, ‘I actually had my baby a couple of months ago.’ We carried on chatting and it was obvious she thought I was someone else so I said, ‘Do you think I am Zoe Saldana?’ Victoria was absolutely mortified!” She added, "It was actually okay as Zoe is a rare beauty, but really? Up close? Come on! And — I am British!” 

DIY is done, thanks to Chip and Joanna Gaines’ new television network. The yet-to-be-titled channel, which will replace Discovery’s DIY Network, is coming in the summer of 2020. The channel will feature shows about gardening, food, wellness, design, home and community, as well as reruns of the Gaines’ HGTV shows. So thanks to the Gaines, it's bye-bye for DIY. 

“The Young & The Restless” is planning to pay tribute to Kristoff St. John, who played Neil Winters on “The Young & The Restless” for almost 28 years. Kristoff passed away on February 3rd at the age of 52.  His TV family will celebrate his life starting on April 23rd, with a special tribute episode airing on April 29th. Look for Shemar Moore, Victoria Rowell, and Mishael Morgan – Malcolm Winters, Drucilla Winters, and Hilary Curtis, respectively – to appear during his tribute episodes. 

Kim Kardashian is going to be a lawyer. She plans on taking the California bar exam in 2022. Kim, who helped secure the release of Alice Marie Johnson, the 63-year-old woman who served 21 years of a life sentence for a non-violent drug charge, said she has been thinking about becoming a lawyer for a long time, and then she finally decided to start a four-year apprenticeship with a law firm in San Francisco last summer. As for where she will be enrolling, Kim has no plans on going to school to study law, but in California, you don't have to actually go to law school in order to take the bar exam. Makes me glad I live in Mass.
