"Glee" star Dot-Marie Jones (Shannon Beiste) is lucky to be alive. She is recovering from a recent heart attack after being misdiagnosed twice. Dot-Marie shared photos of her heart x-ray that showed a 99% blockage in her artery and how it looked after getting a stent. But, doctors didn't know what was wrong with her at first. Apparently, an internist thought that the burning sensation she felt across her chest was bronchio spasms. When it got worse, they thought it was asthma. Dot-Marie’s wife, Bridgett Casteen, rushed Dot to the hospital, where the same cardiologist who treated and saved Bridgett's life in 2017 following a stroke discovered Dot-Marie had what's called a widowmaker heart attack, meaning it's almost always fatal. Dot thanked Bridgett for pushing her to go before insisting that women advocate for their heart health. She said, “Keep asking questions and anything around the heart area or anything you’re not sure of!! Women have different symptoms than men and not all the same!”

The force is no longer with Facebook. Mark Hamill, best known as Luke Skywalker in the "Star Wars" film franchise, announced on Sunday that he decided to delete his Facebook account because he disagrees with Mark Zuckerberg's decision against policing political ads for misinformation, according to AceShowbiz . Mark tweeted, "So disappointed that #MarkZuckerberg values profit more than truthfulness that I've decided to delete my @Facebook account." He added, "I know this is a big 'Who Cares?' for the world at large, but I'll sleep better at night."

Harry Hains, best known for his roles on FX’s “American Horror Story” and Netflix’s “The OA,” has died at the age of 27.

His mother, Jane Badler, is best known for her role as Diana, the villain on "V."

Are Jessie J and Channing Tatum back together? We can’t say for sure, but they were spotted shopping in Santa Monica with his daughter, Everly. The two, who split after a year of dating, were spotted at Restoration Hardware, according to InTouch Weekly. A source said, “They looked like a really cute family. It was really sweet." While it looks like there aren’t any obstacles for a Jessie and Channing reconciliation, an insider said it's not likely and that their relationship just ran its course, explaining, “At the end of the day, it just wasn’t in the cards for them to stay together. They totally respect each other and have parted ways as friends.” Yeah, me and my friends like to hit up hardware stores too.

Scarlett Johansson made history on Monday after becoming only the 12th actor in history to score two Oscar nominations for acting in the same year, according to Entertainment Weekly. Scarlett was nominated for Best Actress in “Marriage Story” and Best Supporting Actress in “Jojo Rabbit.” Others who have had double nominations in the same year include;

New England Patriots star Tom Brady is going to need a new driver's license since he has reportedly left Massachusetts. Tom, who lived with his wife, supermodel Gisele Bündchen, and their kids in Brookline, are said to have moved into a new home in Greenwich, Connecticut. The Boston home was put on the market for $35 million in August. Tom's move to Connecticut happens to be timed out to Tom's eligibility for free agency in March, meaning he still has two months before he can decide to sign freely with any NFL franchise in the 2020 season. As for the chances of him leaving the Pats, Tom said, “I love the Patriots. They have the greatest organization. Playing for Mr. Kraft all these years and Coach Belichick, there’s nobody who has had a better career than me, just being with them. I’m very blessed. I don’t know what the future looks like, so I’m not going to predict it.” And it sounds like they want him back too - Robert Kraft, Chief Executive Officer of the New England Patriots, said he’s happy to see Tom become a free agent, telling NBC Sports that Tom deserves it, but he hopes to see Tom back on his team for the next season.

Stephen King is taking heat from the Twitterverse over his recent comments on the Oscars. As we previously reported, this year’s predominantly Caucasian male nominations sparked outrage for the lack of diversity. Stephen, who gets to nominate in three Oscar categories, says diversity isn’t part of the discussion. In fact, he doesn’t think it should be. He tweeted, “I would never consider diversity in matters of art. Only quality. It seems to me that to do otherwise would be wrong." The comment immediately sparked outrage online, with critics calling the horror writer privileged and even calling for him to be canceled. King has tried to clarify himself since, saying that “everyone” deserves a “fair shot,” regardless of sex, color or orientation.”

Legendary “Jeopardy!” champ Ken Jennings has now been crowned Greatest of All Time on the quiz show. As you might recall, Ken won “Jeopardy!” more than any other contestant, 74 games in 2004. But last night, he won “Jeopardy's Greatest of All Time” tournament, beating the other two top money winners, James Holzhauer and Brad Ritter. Including the $1 million Ken takes home for being “Jeopardy’s” GOAT, Ken's total winnings stands at $4,370,700, according to Entertainment Weekly. And FYI, if you start Googling "is Ken Jennings...," the first autofill that comes up is "married," and the answer is yes, so if you had any hopes of scoring a date with a smart, rich man, the answer to that is "What is 'no'?"

This could be the funniest thing that has ever happened on "The Bachelor." There was a little showdown between Kelsey and Hannah-Ann when Kelsey accused Hannah-Ann of jacking her date. Kelsey had set up a romantic moment for her and Pete, but Hannah-Ann found herself enjoying it instead. Hannah-Ann claimed it was an honest mistake, saying the crew had set up a romantic moment with champagne for her as well. Kelsey ended up throwing a fit over it and took Pete with her over to the other romantic set-up where they popped open the other bottle. Kelsey seemed to have calmed down at that point. Pete asked her if she wanted the champagne in a glass or straight from the bottle. Kelsey opted for straight from the bottle because “I’m not a classy b**** all the time.” And that's where things got hysterical. However she opted to chug it, the whole bottle fizzed up and exploded foamy champagne all over her face. Talk about a bad ending to an already bad night. We don't know if Kelsey is going to win Pete's love, but one thing's for sure - no one is ever going to forget this moment, which will live on the internet forever.

The drama with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle isn't over yet, but this time, it's grief from the other side. As Harry negotiates his and Meghan’s freedom and exitfrom royal duties, her estranged father, Thomas Markle, is reportedly ready to testify against Meghan. According to Daily Mail, he’s being called as a key witness for the defense in Meghan’s legal battle against the British tabloids. From what we hear, Thomas will turn over unseen text messages sent leading up to Meghan and Harry’s wedding.

Is Jennifer Lopez leaving us? She admits she fantasizes about leading a "more simple" life away from the United States. When Vanity Fair magazine asked her about what could be left on her bucket list, she said, "I would love to live somewhere other than the United States, in a small town in Italy, or on the other side of the world, in Bali." And she makes it sound so good! Jennifer added,"Find another life where it's a little bit more simple and organic and where I get to ride a bike, and buy bread, and put it in my basket, and then go home and put jelly on it, and just eat and paint. Or sit in a rocking chair where there was a beautiful view of an olive tree or an oak tree and I could just smell. I have fantasies like that." But don't worry, JLo isn't going anywhere. She has one more career accomplishment to reach on her list - directing. But the way she makes Italy sound, I'm about ready to go home and pack my bags!

Reader’s Digest named Tom Hanks the most trusted man in America back in 2013, but apparently, over the years, the country’s faith in Tom Hanks has dwindled. According to a new poll, America trusts Google and Amazon more now. They top the “Morning Consult” list of the most-trusted brands in the country, right under “your primary doctor” and “the military.” Amazon and Google are trusted by just about 39% of people, while only 34% trust Tom Hanks. But it gets more interesting when you look at who people trust less than Tom Hanks. That includes Oprah, “scientific studies,” “labels on food packaging,” and President Donald Trump. The least trusted? Hollywood, Wall Street, and the US Government, to name a few, according to Mashable. In the meantime, Greece has given Tom Hanks and his family honorary citizenship after they offered help to victims of a deadly wildfire near Athens in the summer of 2018. Maybe you want to rethink how much you trust Tom Hanks now?
