Like mother, like daughter. Jada Pinkett Smith and her 20-year-old daughter Willow Smith considered undergoing Brazilian butt lift (BBL) surgeries.
In a teaser for Wednesday’s episode of Red Table Talk on Facebook, Jada, Willow, and Jada’s mother Adrienne Banfield-Norris discuss peer pressure to follow risky trends.
Jada, 50, said she once considered following the popular Brazilian butt lift trend after checking out her butt in the mirror.
“I’m glad we’re here talking about this today, the BBLs, because I was considering getting one,” she said.
“Me too!” said Willow. “I considered getting the tiniest little bit, but then I just got into the gym and got it anyway.”
“I told her. I said, ‘You want a butt? One thing your mother know how to do is build a butt.’ And you built it to the point that people thought you got surgery.”
Banfield-Norris, left, touched on the peer pressure that causes young women to risk their lives for inflated butts.
“I just feel like there’s always so much more pressure on women to look a certain way,” she said.
“You know it’s all about youth, so for somebody like me, the struggle has been extremely real. Like I’ve had botox, then you get to the point where how much you’re gonna do, but then it almost becomes addictive.”
The couple that color coordinates together, stays together. Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis twinned during a recent outing in Los Angeles.
Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis stepped out to run errands in color coordinated outfits. The former That ’70s Show co-stars both opted for comfortable gray ensembles while in Los Angeles on October 7, completing their looks with black surgical masks.
Ashton, 43, wore an ombré knit sweater and black slacks, while Mila, 38, opted for a two-piece sweater and sweat pants set. The actress was preoccupied with her phone while her husband of six years led the way to their next destination.
The outing comes a day after Ashton was spotted looking dapper on set of Your Place or Mine, his upcoming romantic comedy with Reese Witherspoon. The star was photographed in a navy blue suit on the streets of New York on October 7, while co-star Reese, 45, looked elegant in a black pencil dress and pointed heels.
Ashton and Reese lead the cast of the upcoming Netflix rom-com as two best friends who, on top of being polar opposites, live on opposite sides of the coast. When they swap homes and lives for a week, they “discover what they think they want might not be what they really need,” per Variety. Jesse Williams, Tig Notaro, Zoë Chao, Wesley Kimmel, and Steve Zahn also star in the film.
Ashton and Mila’s outing also comes amidst news that their 1998 series That ’70s Show will receive a spin-off series, That ’90s Show. Original stars Kurtwood Smith and Debra Jo Rupp will reprise their roles as Red and Kitty Forman and lead the series. Set in 1995 Wisconsin, the spin-off will follow Leia Forman, daughter of Eric (Topher Grace) and Donna (Laura Prepon), as she visits her grandparents and forges a friendship with a new generation of Point Place kids.
Deadline reported on Friday that there are currently no deals to bring back the other original cast members, but it’s expected that a number of them will reprise their roles through guest appearances, including Topher, Laura, and Ashton. The series has been picked up for 10 episodes. The original show had another short-lived spin-off That ’80s Show in 2002, but none of the original stars were attached.
For now, we’ll be manifesting a Kelso and Jackie reunion on the upcoming spin-off — ideally in color coordinated outfits.
Kim and Kanye were in talks of hitting the airwaves together as an ‘SNL’ duo this weekend, and a source tells HL EXCLUSIVELY what happened.
Kim Kardashian will make her Saturday Night Live debut tomorrow, and fans (and haters!) are gearing up to see what the 40-year-old has in store. Kim is is the first reality star to host the long-running program, and plenty of talk around the event has made headlines, including the rumor that her estranged husband, Kanye West, would join her for the show as a musical guest. So what happened?
“Weeks and weeks ago when they were getting Kim to do the show, they threw around the possibility of him to be the musical guest, those discussions didn’t make it very far,” a source EXCLUSIVELY revealed to HollywoodLife. “But writers like Michael Che have been throwing the idea around of him being in something. They don’t expect him to do anything, but they certainly asked.”
The source previously revealed to HL how much Kim was “very nervous” about doing the show and that she “wanted to knock it out of the park.” Although the SKIMS founder won’t have a familiar face in Kanye by her side, she may just be focused on having a successful performance herself without her ex around. “She wants to prove to herself and any haters that it was worth it for her to be asked to do the show,” the source added.
Ever since Kim filed for divorce from the “Off the Grid” rapper back in Feb. 2021, how “separate” the two have remained amid their separation has been up in the air. Kim famously appeared in Kanye’s DONDA album performance in Chicago on Aug. 30 in a wedding dress, which caused many to speculate that the two were reconsidering their divorce. As a source told HL at the time, the couple was “putting on a united front” and were “taking it day by day.” Ahead of the Chicago appearance, the couple were also spotted in Malibu on Aug. 19, having a kids-free lunch together.
Kanye West was spotted out and about in the Big Apple just a day ahead of estranged wife Kim Kardashian’s ‘SNL’ gig.
Kanye West, 44, is in New York City. The Yeezy rapper was spotted having coffee with Donald Trump‘s former lawyer Michael Cohen just a day before Kim Kardashian‘s Saturday Night Live debut — see the photos via Page Sixhere.
The Disloyal: A Memoir author, 55, has been under house arrest after being convicted for tax evasion and finance fraud. Cohen was disbarred by the New York Supreme Court Feb. 26, 2019, and later reported to Otisville, New York in May 2019. He was released in May 2020, which is when he began serving his house arrest.
The odd pairing were seen sitting at an outdoor table surrounded by trees at Sant Ambroeus. Two red to-go coffee cups could be seen on the table as they appeared to be in conversation. Kanye was casually dressed in a black hoodie and pants, while Cohen sported a long sleeved black t-shirt. After Cohen was also spotted out in May, his lawyer explained that his client had received “special permission from the BOP [Bureau of Prisons} and RRM [Residential Reentry Management] to eat out.”
The Chicago native actively supported Donald Trump throughout his presidency, even wearing a “Make America Great Again” cap on several occasions. In 2020, Kanye said he was “taking the hat off” as he surprisingly announced his own political ambitions, subsequently running against Trump and current President Joe Biden.
Kanye’s ex Kim has been actively rehearsing for SNL‘s Oct. 9 episode in New York City, which she’s set to host. While it was initially rumored that Kanye could appear as musical guest on the same date, it was later confirmed that Halsey, 27, would be taking the reigns for the fifth time.
Although the rapper isn’t scheduled to appear on the episode, it’s been reported that Kanye has been “quietly advising her on her performance, her opening monologue, even her costumes for the show,” per Page Six. In recent months, Kim has been wearing head-to-toe Balenciaga — a luxury label that Kanye is also closely related with due to his relationship with Demna Gvasalia.
Amid her promising legal battle, Britney Spears shared a sweet new video with fiancé Sam Asghari aboard a jet.
Britney Spears is living her best life amid her promising conservatorship battle. The pop star, 39, shared a video with fiancé Sam Asghari from a private jet on Instagram on October 8. The couple indulged in some miniature desserts as the singer ruminated on God “being in the little things.”
The “Stronger” singer held up her “baby dessert” and explained that it was sweeter than cornbread. “God is in the little things,” she said, describing her little dessert as the “tiniest piece of food I have ever seen in my life.” Her fiancé, 27, asked to taste the confection before they moved on to some chocolates.
Britney said they were “criminals” for indulging in the goods so early in the morning. “I can’t believe we are doing this in the morning,” she endearingly said. “We are criminals!” The pop star captioned the post with a cryptic message: “Ain’t it funny what the truth can do ????? Pssss although I’ve learned from the best about those beautiful white lies.”
The video comes after Britney scored a major victory during a court hearing on September 29. A judge suspended her estranged father Jamie from her conservatorship, appointing certified public accountant John Zabel in his place. It came after the star pleaded for her father to be removed as conservator — a role he has held since it was first implemented in 2008 — during previous summer court hearings.
A court date has been set for November 12 to possibly explore the termination of the conservatorship for good. Following the victory, a source told HollywoodLife that the pop star has been writing new music amid her legal battles, reiterating that Britney is not retired just yet. The star has been on a work hiatus since the end of her Vegas residency in 2017.
“Despite what is being put out there, Britney is not retired. It is actually quite the opposite,” the source told HL. “She has been writing music over the past couple of years because it would be impossible for her not to. Music is her passion and it is in her blood.” The source added that “top producers in the industry” have been reaching out: “Everyone is dying to work with her.”
‘No joke is off the table’ when it comes to Kim Kardashian making her ‘Saturday Night Live’ hosting debut on Oct.9, a source tells HollywoodLife has EXCLUSIVELY.
We are just one day away from Kim Kardashian, 40, making her debut on Saturday Night Live. The SKIMS founder makes history as the first-ever reality star to host the series — and HollywoodLife has EXCLUSIVELY learned that no jokes are off the table!
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star is used to the limelight, so one would think that hosting SNL would be a piece of cake — however, a source reveals that that may not be the case.“Kim is very nervous about doing SNL because she wants to really knock it out of the park. She wants to prove to herself and any haters that it was worth it for her to be asked to do the show,” a source reveals to HL.
Of course, Kim and her family have been the butt of jokes on SNL for years, and now, the reality star will get a chance to get in on the action herself, and perhaps share the moment with her beloved family. “One thing she has done and to put the cast at ease is that she has told them that any idea is a good idea, and they can absolutely present her anything and she is willing to make fun of herself and she has mentioned that nothing is off-limits. She wants the best idea to win, and she wants to really make it a fun show. If they want to make fun of her family and have some family members on the show, she is all for it.”
The KKW Beauty founder will be the first Kardashian-Jenner to host the comedy sketch show, which has been a dream of Kim’s, and all hands are on deck for the occasion. “All hands are on deck when it comes to Kim’s family to be a part of the show, [and] ideas have been thrown [around]. [Another] idea [that has] been [discussed] is a digital short and a Keeping Up spoof,” our source states. “Most of the show has been written. But like SNL always does, they always go down to the wire and continue to make changes and add new skits up until and after rehearsals. But her sisters and her mother have Kim’s back and are ready to help in any skit this weekend and Kim is all for it.”
However the show comes together, we know it’ll be a riot — especially after the hilarious promos that were released on Oct. 7. In one of the promos, Cecily Strong asks Kim if she’s “nervous” about doing sketch comedy for the first time. “Why? I don’t have to write sketches, do I?” Kim asks, to which Cecily responds, “No.” Then, Kim wonders, “[Do I have to] memorize lines?” and Halsey assures her, “No, they’re on cue cards.” The most important question of all, though, is: “Everyone won’t look as good as me, will they?” Cecily insists, “No, absolutely not!” and Kim is now certain that the job will be “so easy.”
The highly-anticipated episode will air on Oct. 9., and Halsey will be the musical guest. In addition to Kim, other celeb hosts for season 47 include Owen Wilson, Rami Malek, and Jason Sudeikis, which NBC revealed on Sept. 22.
‘Teen Mom OG’ stars Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra may have a big family at home, but they still find ways to keep their marriage exciting!
As the proud parents of daughters Novalee, 6, Vaeda, 2, and the newborn Rya Rose, Teen Mom OG stars Catelynn Lowell, 29,and Tyler Baltierra, 29, definitely face their share of challenges when trying to maintain an exciting marriage. Speaking EXCLUSIVELY with HollywoodLife, the couple detailed some of those challenges but also weren’t afraid to open up about how they keep things spicy!
“I feel like that’s one of the reasons I love working out,” Tyler laughed. “You gotta keep it looking good!” On a more sincere note, Catelynn shared that their marriage was “a lot of hard work” and that it wasn’t always easy to keep the ship afloat. Tyler added that the pair had “done a pretty good job” of establishing how to love one another since “no one can really teach you that. “It’s one of those things where we ask the other person, ‘Here’s my need. Can you provide it or not?’ And sometimes they can, sometimes they can’t so communication is huge, definitely.”
Catelynn continued, “I mean, I feel like we’re just also really good friends on top of being partners and parents to these children, and so yeah I think that also helps a lot too. And then honestly I truly do believe in soulmates. I believe that souls are meant to come together in life to really learn from each other and grow with each other.”
As for what’s to come for Teen Mom OG, the couple is eager for fans to see them navigating parenthood and continuing their relationship with Carly, 12, whom they first welcomed in high school in 2009 and subsequently gave up for adoption.
“[I’m excited for fans to see] us being able to see Carly and my grandma being able to come and see Carly for the first time since she left the hospital,” Catelynn shared. “And so I think that’s cool being able to like really continue to show the journey of like an adoption plan and how you navigate the ups and the downs and the good times and the bad times.”
Amid ongoing speculations of divorce, a source tells HollywoodLife exclusively that Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott’s relationship has seen better days.
Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott’s relationship has been rocky amid ongoing divorce rumors. The couple, who wed in 2006, has weathered many storms, including public admissions of infidelity. While Dean, 54, recently called the split speculations “weird,” a source has revealed exclusively to HollywoodLife that Tori, 48, and her husband “aren’t getting along” amid divorce rumors.
“Right now, Tori and Dean aren’t getting along,” a source close to the couple told HL. “They really haven’t for a long time. He’s wanted to leave Tori and the home, but he doesn’t want to leave the kids. That’s been really, really hard on him.” Tori is currently away from Los Angeles filming her upcoming project Bleeding Greed, and the source added that this brief separation has been “good” for the couple.
“Because she’s away filming, this break is something they needed,” the source continued. “Her doing this film is long overdue and this may give Tori the strength to do her own thing too. They’ve been having problems for a very long time and he has thought about moving out and has stayed with friends, but he wants to be with the children.”
“He doesn’t want to give that up,” the source concluded. “This break is a good thing for them.” The couple share five children together: Liam, 14, Stella, 13, Finn, 9, Hattie, 9, and Beau, 4. The rumors of a separation have largely been fueled by the fact that the two have been spotted without their wedding rings. Tori also previously revealed in June that she and her husband don’t sleep in the same bedroom.
She explained that the children began sleeping with her while Dean was away for six months filming at a different country. “Right now, my kids and dogs sleep in my bed,” Tori said. “Since he left — this is not good, you guys — but since he left [and] he was gone for six months filming in another country, they all stayed with me, so I currently still have four in the bedroom with me who have yet to go back to their rooms.”
With chatter of a rough patch abuzz, Dean addressed the rumors while on the “Feminine Warrior” podcast on September 15. “I don’t reply, you know, anymore. It’s just like, ‘OK, if that’s what you want to think, then think it,” he said. “It’s just weird that people need to know. ‘What’s going on with Tori and Dean? She’s not wearing her ring.’ Why do you need to know that? How is that going to affect your day?”
Jon Gosselin returned to the Pennsylvania home that made him a household name and he revealed EXCLUSIVELY to HL how it made him feel!
Jon Gosselin, 44, was wrapping up a day of work when he decided to pull over at the Pennsylvania home TLC viewers fell in love with when they first met him on Jon & Kate Plus 8 in 2007. The nostalgic moment brought back all the feels for the reality alum, which he opened up about. “I pass it on the highway 100 times with Amazon,” Jon told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY on Oct. 7, referencing his full-time job. “I travel that highway a lot. I was actually down one road that connects so I said, ‘I’m just going to stop. Why not?’ Who cares? I’m just a normal person now. I was working with my partner, the International DJ Casper and we were in the studio together working on some music and I was like, ‘You know what? I’m going to swing by my old stomping grounds and crib.”
The DJ and Amazon employee once lived in the home with his now ex-wife, Kate Gosselin, 46. The former couple split after 10 years of marriage in 2010. Their once famous show documented their lives as they raised twins Mady and Cara Gosselin, 20, and their adorable sextuplet siblings, Joel, Aiden, Collin, Hannah, Alexis and Leah, 17. Jon currently has custody of Collin and Hannah while their siblings live with their mother (Mady and Cara are now at college in New York City).
He even decided to knock and see if the new owners were willing to come to the door to say hello! “I actually rang their doorbell and nobody was home,” Jon revealed. “I don’t remember who bought the house or if it’s the second owner after me and no one was home and the neighbors were looking at me like, ‘My God!’ and then I just took a selfie and said, ‘Why not?!’ and it was funny.”
Although the house was empty, Jon took note of the new look. “They added an awning to the front of the house,” Jon said. “They changed the shutters. They put up a thing on the end of the fence and they have a dog. The tree in the front yard got really big! But it’s been 15 years since I lived there. It was interesting. That’s where it all started completely — Season 1.”
While Jon hopes to return for a future visit, it’s up to his kids if they want to go back and see it for themselves. “They can just drive there!” Jon added. “My kids are adults, pretty much. They’ll be 18. They can go whenever they want.”
Britney Spears has been ‘getting offers from some of the top producers in the industry’ who are ‘dying to work with her,’ a source tells HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY!
Britney Spears, 39, is almost free from the conservatorship that has governed her life for the past 13 years. And although the pop-princess — who has not worked since the end of her Las Vegas residency in 2017 — indicated that she was done for good, several sources close to Spears revealed that she is not ready to throw in the towel just yet!
“Despite what is being put out there, Britney is not retired. It is actually quite the opposite,” an industry insider spilled to HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. “She has been writing music over the past couple of years because it would be impossible for her not to. Music is her passion and it is in her blood.”
“Those close to Britney are all aware of this and she has been getting offers from some of the top producers in the industry. Everyone is dying to work with her,” the insider revealed.
So what kind of sounds can fans expect from the mother of sons’ Sean, 16, and Jayden, 15?
“The songs she has been writing are dark, for the most part. She is comparing her new music to her [2007 album] Blackout, which everyone absolutely loved.”
On Sept. 30, Britney scored a huge legal victory when a Los Angeles Court suspended her father, Jamie Spears, 69, as conservator of her estimated $60 million estate, designating a temporary replacement to oversee her finances.
“Britney deserves to wake up tomorrow without her father as her conservator,” attorney for the “Toxic” singer, Matthew Rosengart said at the time. “It is what my client wants, it what my client needs, it is what my client deserves.”
“Britney wants all of this behind her because she wants to be able to be the sole person behind any music she creates if she chooses to do so,” a separate source spilled EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife. “She loves music but she felt way too controlled to do it. She would love to go back to music and she has been writing.”
However, a family insider said that first and foremost is getting the conservatorship resolved stat!
“Britney has been on a work hiatus since postponing her MGM Park Vegas show. Nothing has been decided on further or work during this time, but the focus and goal is to have this conservatorship case resolved ASAP,” the family friend told HollywoodLife, adding, “the future is open at this point.”
As fans know, following the court’s decision to suspend Jamie from the conservatorship, Spears jetted away on a lavish vacation with fiancé Sam Asghari, 28, to the French Polynesia, where she has been sharing updates on social media about her newfound freedom.
In her posts, she shared photos and videos from inside the cockpit of a plane and revealed that she flew a plane for the first time. Following her flying lessons, she posted photos of herself wearing just flower emojis — leaving nothing to the imagination. “She’s happy doing nothing for the time being and just being with Sam. There’s really no interest in working at the moment,” the insider insisted.
For now, fans can only hope to hear new music from Spears, who hasn’t released an album since Glory in 2016.
From pro wrestler to actor to MC, The Rock just took on a whole new rapping gig with an all-star verse on Tech N9ne’s new track.
Is there anything Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson can’t do?! The 49-year-old showed off his rapping chops on the new Tech N9ne track “Face Off,” on Friday, Oct. 8, showing the world that he can wrestle, act, own businesses and be just as powerful on the mic. The track, off the Tech N9ne’s album ASIN9NE, also features Joey Cool and King Iso and has Dwayne rapping about things he’s most passionate about, including his cultural roots and hardcore workouts.
“Made my historic rap debut (thankfully I didn’t suck,” Dwayne joked on Twitter after sharing the song. “Huge shout to all the hip hop & music fans for your HYPE reactions that are straight f*cking fire[.]” Check out Dwayne’s verse on the track below!
Speaking with Variety, Dwayne shared more about his passion for the project, noting how much he appreciates the art form. “I love music. Anytime in my movies when I can implement some musical elements, I always love doing that,” he shared. The A-list actor noted that members of the hip hop community have approached him before, but when Tech N9ne DM-d him on Instagram, he finally went for a collaboration.
Tech N9ne also shared his feelings about the team-up with Variety, raving about how “the biggest star in the world” actually responded to his collaboration proposition. “I am hyped. We are all hyped!” the rapper raved to the outlet while on tour.
Dwayne and Tech N9ne had already been friendly on social media, but they finally met in person on the set of Ballers, the HBO series in which Dwayne stars. “When Tech texted me, I knew I would make this work. We’re aligned, just in terms of our work ethic and desire,” Dwayne went on. “When Tech and I first met years ago on the set of Ballers, we were talking about this idea about being the hardest worker in the room. He said something that I really appreciated: basically, ‘There could never be enough food in this room or on this set that could make me full because I always want to be hungry.’ I just love that.”
