Supermodel Gigi Hadid was among the 120 potential jurors who showed up yesterday for Harvey Weinstein’s trial in Manhattan. While Gigi admitted that she had met Harvey before, she also told Judge James Burke that she could be fair and impartial. After hearing a list of potential witnesses, she also admitted that she had met Salma Hayek. Still, she was among the 35 potential jurors who were asked to fill out a jury questionnaire and come back on Thursday, according to CNN.

It looks like Kaia Gerber and Pete Davidson are taking a little time away from each other. We told you before that things were heating up as Pete met Kaia’s parents. Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber, but now, there’s word that the romance is “cooling off." Part of the reason? The “SNL” star is kicking off 2020 on a health kick. A source tells “E! News” that Pete is “taking a break to work on his mental health,” which has put his relationship with Kaia on the back-burner. In fact, Pete himself had joked on “Saturday Night Live” about going on insurance-covered “vacation,” coincidentally just days after he met Kaia’s parents. Since then, Kaia and Pete haven’t been spotted together again.

A few months after his very public split from Miley Cyrus, Liam Hemsworth is off the market again. The actor is kicking off 2020 with a new girl, model Gabriella Brooks, according to New Idea. After reportedly spending New Year’s Eve together, the two have everything but officially confirmed they’re a thing. This week, they were spotted kissing each other at Byron Beach in Australia, and Liam was caught in pics getting a little handsy, too. Sources say the two are getting a little serious. A few weeks back, Daily Mail shared photos of Gabriella meeting Liam’s parents in Australia.

Sia and Diplo have a good working relationship, having collaborated on their side project LSD. But in a new GQ article about Diplo, Sia revealed that she really would love their relationship to become something more. Sia admitted, “Much of our relationship is just being spent trying not to have sex so that we wouldn’t ruin our business relationship because he’s super- hot. This year I wrote him a text, and I said, ‘Hey, listen, you’re like one of five people that I’m sexually attracted to, and now that I’ve decided to be single for the rest of my life and I just adopted a son, I don’t have time for a relationship .… If you’re interested in some no-strings sex, then hit me up.’” There’s no word on whether or not they ended up swinging from the chandelier.

Amid the Meghan and Harry drama, the Queen has finally responded in a statement; "My family and I are entirely supportive of Harry and Meghan's desire to create a new life as a young family. Although we would have preferred them to remain full-time working members of the Royal Family, we respect and understand their wish to live a more independent life as a family while remaining a valued part of my family." She added, "Harry and Meghan have made clear that they do not want to be reliant on public funds in their new lives. It has therefore been agreed that there will be a period of transition, in which the Sussexes will spend time in Canada and the U.K. These are complex matters for my family to resolve, and there is some more work to be done, but I have asked for final decisions to be reached in the coming days." It's safe to say she probably hasn't been too happy with the couple for a while now since, during the Queen‘s annual Christmas address broadcast, fans were able to see photos of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s family and Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles in frames on her desk, but none of Harry and Meghan. This was shortly after the couple announced they would not be spending the holidays with the royals, and would instead be going on a six-week vacation to Canada with Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland.

Abby Huntsman is leaving “The View” after two-and-a-half years. ABC News has confirmed that she’s exiting the talk show to help work on her father Jon Huntsman’s campaign for governor of Utah. So far, it’s unclear when her final episodes will be." Of course, many are wondering if Meghan McCain is partly the reason Abby is leaving. From what we hear, none of the other co-hosts are talking to Meghan, including Abby, who is the only other conservative voice on the show. Sources say Abby and Meghan hit a rough patch, basically over their political upbringings. According to a sources, “They aren’t speaking to each other, it’s been about a month. None of the ladies talk to Meghan now.”

"Jar of Hearts" singer Christina Perri shared some sad news on Instagram this weekend. The singer announced that she suffered a miscarriage in her 11th week of pregnancy. She wrote, “Today I had a miscarriage. We are shocked & completely heartbroken. We were only 1 week away from sharing the news so I feel like it's also important to share this news too. I want to continue to help change the story & stigma around miscarriage, secrecy and shame." Christina and husband Paul Constabile are already parents to one-year-old daughter Carmella. We wish them the best as they start the healing process.

After Jillian Michaels got blasted for fat-shaming Lizzo last week, Bob Harper knew better than to try go there. The host of the reboot of “The Biggest Loser” on USA Network didn't take the bait when Lizzo was brought up. He said that since he had never met Lizzo, “I can't comment on her health. All I know is that I love her, and I love her music, and she can play a mean flute.”

Now for the snubs…
- First and foremost, women were totally snubbed in the Best Director category for the second year in a row, despite great movies like “Little Women” and “The Farewell” coming out last year, and Deadline reports that the percentage of female Oscar nominees is actually higher than ever. While announcing the Best Director nominations, Issa Rae threw in a little shade to the Academy by saying, “Congratulations to these men.”
- Jennifer Lopez didn’t get a nod for best supporting actress in “Hustlers,” even after scoring Screen Actors Guild, Critics’ Choice, and Golden Globes nominations.
- Lupita Nyong’o played two different characters in Jordan Peele’s horror movie “Us”... and didn’t get nominated for either of them.
- Nicole Kidman for playing Gretchen Carlson in the Fox News drama “Bombshell." Meanwhile, her co-star Charlize Theron was nominated for her lead role as Megyn Kelly, and Margot Robbie got a nod for supporting actress for her original character.
- Robert De Niro didn’t score an acting nod for Scorsese’s “The Irishman”... but his co-stars Joe Pesci and Al Pacino did.
- Eddie Murphy for his role as real-life movie legend Rudy Ray Moore in “Dolemite Is My Name.”
- “Frozen II” didn't get a Best Animated Movie but the movie’s hit song “Into The Unknown” did score a nod for Best Song.
- Awkwafina made Golden Globes history as the first Asian actress to win Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy thanks to her role in “The Farewell” but she didn’t have the same luck with the Oscars.
- Taron Egerton took home a Golden Globe for Best Actor after portraying Elton John in “Rocketman,” but unlike Rami Malek’s success as Freddie Mercury in “Bohemian Rhapsody,” Taron hasn’t been nominated for an Oscar.
- Adam Sandler for his almost unrecognizable in his hyped-up role in “Uncut Gems” but no nod for him. What's nice is he still congratulated his former "Waterboy" co-star Kathy Bates on her surprise nomination. He wrote, "Congrats to all my friends who got nominated, especially Mama." She responded with, “I love you my Bobby Boucher!!! You was robbed!! But Mama loves you!!! I learned a new urban slang word for you! You da GOAT!! Not the one we eat at home, Son."

We've got more details from the Palace on Meghan and Harry's departure from the responsibilities of the royal family. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s decision to quit the royal family was in order to protect their son, Archie, according to RadarOnline.com. Meghan didn't want Archie to grow up in the royal spotlight. According to a source, “Meghan has already made a name for herself since marrying into the royal family, but she didn’t realize how big of a responsibility it would be. She realized that this is not the life she wants to live forever, and especially with Archie, it’s not the life she wants him to have.” And while the couple says they don't want to rely on public funds, it's worth noting that, according to one security professional, Canada will be obligated to cover the cost of a security detail to the family, due to Harry’s status as a Prince and Duke. Canada is a commonwealth country, so Harry can't decline security because of the country’s ties to the monarchy, according to Page Six, and that could cost Canada millions per year.

Former "Beverly Hills, 90210" star Tori Spelling's 11-year-old daughter has a broken ankle. Tori posted a pic on Instagram of her daughter Stella's pink cast and wrote, "@stellamcdermott has a broken ankle again." Again? Apparently, her daughter broke her ankle once before in 2013.

"Teen Mom OG" stars Mackenzie Edwards and Ryan Edwards are parents again. Mackenzie posted on Instagram, “Welcome to the world sweet Stella! Stella Rhea Edwards came on her own time and surprised us New Years (sic) Day! What a way to start our year! We are so in love with her already." The baby was due sometime after Ryan’s birthday on January 3, but she surprised them a couple of days early. We know they weren't prepared for the quick arrival since MTV cameras missed it completely, according to The Sun.
