Brad Pitt is probably used to hearing “cut," but probably not at a Los Angeles Board of Supervisors.

According to USA Today, Brad was making a proposal for improvements to the Los Angeles County Museum on Tuesday. Diane Keaton was also there and said her piece within her allotted time, but Brad didn’t. Board member Janie Hahn had to tell him wrap it up mid-speech. However serious, the moment got some laughs all around.

Brad said, “I see my time’s expired, I could go on for another hour." Hahn responded with, “It gives me great pain to say it, but wrap it up Mr. Pitt!” Brad responded by saying, “We actors suffer from verbosity.” 

Kate Hudson apparently loves being a mom and during her appearance on the “Rachael Ray” show, she said she wishes she could “have 100 kids.” 

She also said she loves seeing her kids grow up so fast. Her 15-year-old son Ryder is  almost six feet tall which she said is a day she says she used to “dream about.” “The other day, he gave me a hug and I almost burst into tears,” she noted. “I can’t wait to go to a bar with my kid...is that weird? He’s so much fun!”

She has three kids, but she said there’s room for more. “I would have 100 kids,” she added. “I love being pregnant.”

Teresa Giudice’s brother Joe Gorga is speaking out about how she’s doing as her husband Joe Giudice faces deportation. We told you before that Teresa’s lawyer claimed she’s not planning on divorcing Joe, but things still seem up in the air. Meanwhile, Gorga is just trying to be there for his sister.

Gorga tells Us Weekly that Joe is "miserable" and “in a really bad spot” in ICE custody. And while Teresa may be “putting up a good front,” Gorga says the couple is “struggling.” “Our relationship is very tight right now and I know she breaks down to me,” he adds.

For now, Teresa is waiting to see if her husband can come home. But if things don’t work out, her brother wants to help her get back “on the market.” 

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are breaking even more Royal traditions.  Royal mothers usually make a big exit from the hospital with their newborn in their arms for the world to see. Kate did it with all three of her children, but Meghan probably won’t.

Buckingham Palace released a statement announcing Meghan and Harry’s “personal” decision to “keep the plans around the arrival of their baby private.” “The duke and duchess look forward to sharing the exciting news with everyone once they have had an opportunity to celebrate privately as a new family,” the statement continues.

Depp filed a $50 million defamation lawsuit against his ex Amber Heard calling her abuse claims “an elaborate hoax.” The actress has responded by going all out with her allegations with details on multiple alleged incidents of “horrific” abuse by the actor throughout their marriage in documents obtained by Page Six. He claims he has evidence that she’s faked the attacks, but Amber has screenshots showing Depp calling himself a “savage” and apologizing for going “too far” with his “rage.”

She claims he repeatedly shoved her, hit her, ripped out her hair, choked her near suffocation, and even threatened to “kill” her on one occasion. One of the alleged attacks occurred on a private flight in 2014, when he was drunk and became jealous that she had just filmed a romantic scene with James Franco for a movie. Including that incident, he’d always apologize when he came to, so she hoped he “would get better” because she “loved” him.

Amber also says that substance abuse is party of the reason for his alleged behavior after she noticed him “abusing drugs and alcohol” a year after they started dating in early 2012. When he was using, she says “he would become a totally different person,” who they called “The Monster.” 

Elite Daily claims some of Meghan Markle's Royal staffers are not happy with her. A source tells the website,"Meghan gets up early, 5:00 in the morning oftentimes. She gets on the treadmill or whatever and starts texting her team members about things for that day. Probably in her mind she’s just kind of getting her day set up. But royal staff members were certainly not expecting or happy to start getting a barrage of text messaged instructions starting at 5:30 every morning and took great umbrage and offense at that."

Mel B has reportedly settled a defamation suit brought by her former nanny Lorraine Gilles. She had a tough divorce from Stephen Belafonte. While this was happening, Mel B made a bunch of accusations about the nanny, calling her a “prostitute,” saying Stephen got her pregnant and told her to get an abortion. Mel B also said that Lorraine was her secret lover, and was blackmailing her with sex tapes. 

Lorraine sued Mel B for defamation over the accusations, seeking $6.5 million, and now the Daily Mirror says that Mel B settled the case for $2.6 mil.

"Mel was just happy to clear this mess up once and for all," a source tells “Daily Mirror.” "Things were said in court papers in the heat of a divorce, which exploded into this lawsuit. But in recent weeks their frost has thawed, with them even meeting in the same room to work out their differences."

Cosmo magazine claims Lori Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo, are blaming each other for their college admissions bribery scandal. A source tells the magazine, "Lori and Mossimo are blaming each other and disagreeing on things. They are starting to turn on each other and there is incredible stress and tension. Olivia feels completely lost. Her and Lori are leaning on each other a lot for full support right now.''

The NY Post claims Lori and her husband may hire Lindsay Lohan's former publicist, Hunter Frederick, to be their crisis manager. A source tells the newspaper, “Lori hasn’t done herself any favors by trying to win over public opinion. From waiting far too long to make a statement about her mistake to signing autographs. It all looks bad. The public is 100% against her. She needs someone to tell her no and be willing to speak on her behalf even if she isn’t willing to do it herself. Lori is no different than any other high-profile individuals who enter into crisis. ‘I’m sorry’ goes a long way, if the person saying it really means it. We haven’t seen that from Lori yet.”

It’s finally over for Wendy Williams and Kevin Hunter. She filed for divorce after nearly 22 years of marriage after all the rumors that he’d fathered a child with his alleged mistress. 

The talk show host cited irreconcilable differences in the paperwork she filed in Essex County, New Jersey. She wants an “appropriate amount of child support” for their son, Kevin Jr., as well as “other further relief as the Court deems fair and equitable.” 

Wendy’s rep released a statement saying, “Thank you to everyone for respecting the family’s privacy during this time. Kevin is supportive of Wendy and they are working through this process together. No additional comment will be provided at this time.” 

The Daily Mail says Empire star Jussie Smollett is currently vacationing in Hawaii. He and his fam were spotted hanging at a beach and at a historical park. Jussie continues to deny he staged a fake hate crime against himself

And we told you it was going to happen, Yahoo News reported that the city of Chicago filed a lawsuit yesterday against Jussie in an attempt to recoup the $130,000 to cover the cost of the police overtime it took to investigate an allegedly bogus hate crime. 

This case could turn everything around for Jussie. He says he's innocent, so settling wouldn’t be a good look. If the case goes to trial, the sealed files in his criminal case could be made public. We'll see what happens


Last year Foster The People’s Mark Foster made some jokes about Imagine Dragons. He said his band gives songs that don’t make it on their albums to Imagine Dragons, but now Mark is apologizing to Imagine Dragon's frontman Dan Reynolds.

“I have been burdened by something I feel I need to amend,” Foster said on Twitter. “I would like to apologize to Dan Reynolds and his band Imagine Dragons. In a passing moment last year, I let some words come out of my mouth that don’t reflect who I am, or what I stand for.”

He then said about Dan, “I believe he’s one of the good guys. It takes a lot of courage to stand for something...nobody has ever erected a statue of a critic...Keep fighting the good fight, Dan. You have my pledge to work alongside you if you ever need a hand. Much respect to you and continued success in your music.”

Dan Reynolds responded online saying, “This means quite a lot to me,” although he admits, “I was probably being oversensitive to begin with.” He adds, “you didn’t have to put together something classy like this but it’s rad you did.”
