Kelly Clarkson’s new talk show, “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” debuted yesterday, with a special introduction from Steve Carell, yelling out Kelly’s name “40-Year-Old Virgin” style. The show also featured Kelly’s full cover of Dolly Parton’s “9 to 5,” complete with real women firefighters, mechanics, utility workers, policewomen and more. She even had a lot of those real women in the audience, with many dressed in their uniforms. Kelly also took a moment out to hand out cakes to her neighbors on the Universal lot, including Chrissy Metz and Chris Sullivan of "This Is Us." Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson took Kevin Hart’s place as the first guest on “The Kelly Clarkson Show.” He gave an update on Kevin’s condition in the wake of his car crash and back surgery, referring to Kevin as his son.  He said Kevin is doing well, adding, “These things happen in life and thankfully he was strapped in nicely to his car seat.” He also said he spoke to Kevin’s “pediatrician.”


As we told you yesterday, “Desperate Housewives” star Felicity Huffman is currently awaiting sentencing for her part in the college admissions scandal. In the meantime, she wrote a letter to the judge, but just to be clear, it was not to justify her actions because she knew she was wrong. She said her daughter, Sophia, has always struggled with “sensory modulation issues.” Felicity said she cheated on Sophia’s SAT scores because she didn’t want her struggling grades and scores to hinder her acting auditions. Now, according to Entertainment Tonight, Sophia is upset that her mom didn’t believe in her. Interestingly, the school Sophia was going for didn’t even require SAT scores. Of course, when the scandal broke, they pulled her name from consideration. Felicity said that this whole ordeal has left her with “shame and regret” that she’ll carry for the rest of her life.


Dr. Mehmet Oz recently learned that his mother, Suna Oz, has Alzheimer’s, but he’s upset with himself because he says he “completely missed the signs.” He and his sister started to notice irregularities in their mom’s actions, late in the disease, when she struggling to find her words, while his sister thought she was dressing oddly. Dr. oz explained, “If the right word was, ‘You look beautiful today,’ [mom] would use, ‘You look pretty prettier today.’ I missed those clues.” He added, “Alzheimer’s is like a snake in the grass. You don’t see it. You only see the effects of it suddenly. And if there’s a wind blowing the grass, you don’t even notice the grass moving strangely. It sneaks up on you.” Dr. Oz’s father died in February, and that’s when they started to notice her behavior. Currently, his mom is living in her home country of Turkey where Dr. Oz’s sister is caring for her. In the meantime, Dr. Oz has also discovered that he carries one of the genes for Alzheimer’s, so he is taking preventative measures like watching his belly fat and keeping his mind sharp.

Pink’s daughter, Willow, got a new haircut. She got her head shaved on one side with a bob on her other side. Her dad wrote, “Loving my punk rock daughter. Remember everyone, fly your own flag. There is no box to be put in. Its better to be your own self. Own it, and love it. And if anyone has a problem with it, tell them (politely) to move on.” He then added to Willow, “Cant wait to see the woman you grow up to be. I have a feeling you are gonna be strong, fierce, companionate, and caring. I’m so proud of you, willow.” Punk rock, just like her mama!

Here’s your daily dose of “Real Housewives” gossip…

  • In case you haven’t heard, Camille Grammer is done with “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” and she blamed Kyle Richards as for why she wasn’t asked back.

I really don’t know what to say, I’m not the reason that Camille is not here right now.”

The Weeknd has always had a unique look about him, but that’s all changed. He tamed his hair and shaved his beard, sporting a shorter (but not too short) look and a mustache, as seen on aceshowbiz.com. Fans almost didn’t recognize him at on the red carpet at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival last night. People tweeted things like he “went from the weekend to Monday thru Friday 4:30 pm EST" and "You look like Lionel Richie and Pablo Escobar had a secret love child. Maybe he was just sick of not being able to feel his face.


Justin Bieber thinks he looks like the Sprouse twins. As seen on aceshowbiz.com,  Justin posted a side-by-side photo of him next to pictures of Dylan and Cole Sprouse when they were little and wrote, "Me and the Sprouse twins looked so similar as a baby. I coulda subbed in for them for big daddy. Comment yes or no down below!" While a lot of people agreed, some, including Dylan’s girlfriend, Barbara Palvin, disagreed. She said to Entertainment Tonight, "No one can be compared to the Sprouse twins. I don't agree." Now, it’s rumored that Justin and Barbara once dated, and it could be said Barbara resembles Selena Gomez a bit, another one of Justin’s exes. I guess everybody’s got a type.

The psychiatrist who has been responsible for Britney Spears’ care died late last month, leaving the question of her care up in the air. Dr. Timothy Benson, a board-certified psychiatrist, who made a name for himself working with NBA and NFL teams, died August 24th at the age of 48. While no official cause of death has been revealed, it is believed he died of an aneurysm. His death comes at a particularly crucial time in the battle over Britney’s conservatorship. TMZ reports that within the next 10 days the judge in the case is expected to receive results from a three-month investigation into whether or not Britney has been getting appropriate medical care. Sources say there have been a lot of questions around her care, especially when it comes to medications she has been prescribed for her mental health issues, with some questioning whether Dr. Benson was qualified to treat someone with serious issues like Britney. Meanwhile, a judge in California has temporarily relieved Britney's dad Jamie of his conservatorship duties. The move was one requested by Jamie, who cited "personal health reasons" as the motivation for his decision. He also requested Jodi Montgomery be appointed to take his place from yesterday until January 20, 2020. Another hearing is set for September 18th. Read more at TMZ.com.

There’s been a rumor that Ed Sheeran and his wife will hold a big celebration months after they initially married in a small church last December. At that time, they only had 40 friends and family, but this time, the A-listers will make the cut, like Jennifer Aniston, Taylor Swift and Sir Elton John. There’s a field used for the Latitude festival, and now, there is a large, red circus tent, which has had security and guard dog presence, which, according to The Sun, will be the location of the party. Earlier this year, a source revealed to The Sun, “Ed and Cherry are planning a festival-style party for a wider list to happen at the end of the summer. That will be all singing and dancing, and they’ll be able to invite Taylor [Swift] and those who work with the record company and royal friends.” We’ll have to wait and see….
