After strong scores last week, Olivia Jade & Val Chmerkovskiy told HL that they’re upping their game with a spicy trick called the ‘death drop’ in tonight’s performance!

Olivia Jade Giannulli and Val Chmerkovskiy are here to stay at the top of the scoreboard on Dancing With The Stars. After receiving straight 8s from the judges during Britney Week and joining competitors JoJo Siwa and Amanda Kloots at the top of the leaderboard, Olivia Jade is taking part in some tricks and lifts in this week’s Disney themed dances that will hopefully bring her one step closer to the Mirror Ball trophy. “We have something called the ‘death drop’ that we’re doing this week,” Olivia dished from her rehearsal in an EXCLUSIVE interview with HollywoodLife. “As you can tell by the title, it’s a little intense! It’s actually really fun… honestly, any tricks in general scare me because I don’t dance, and I just I’ve never had any experience like this in my life. But, the ‘death drop’ is working, so we will see!”

The social media creator admitted that she has “put a lot of pressure” on herself to “get better every week,” and is feeling it even more so this week after her strong scores. “The scores were awesome. I was super excited and I felt really grateful and happy when I saw the eights because we worked really hard on that dance. It really rewarding to have that recognition,” Olivia said. “But, it’s a new week. I think basically after those scores are out and Monday night comes to a close, you’ve got to move forward and focus on the new dance.”

This week, Olivia and the DWTS contestants have not one but two dances to learn for Disney Week’s Heroes and Villains nights, which will take place subsequently on Monday and Tuesday. “I love Tuesdays. They’re more fun and less pressure, I feel like, and so I think she’ll feel the same,” Val said of the two-show week. “I’m excited for Monday but then Tuesday hopefully will be the cherry on top of a great week.” The pair plan to tap into The Lion King for Heroes Night on Monday and will dance a samba.

“I think what was impressive about Olivia’s last performance was the movement the judges had not her do before and this week is going to be the same thing,” Val continued. “This week is going to be the same thing. This is a dance that’s really going to challenge her, but I think she will really impress me.”

Olivia added that she will be “a little more independent” in these dances, and “out of frame” from Val, where she is typically “most comfortable.” “These last two weeks we’ve had more structure in our dances, and these ones are a bit more free, so that’s actually something I’m really looking forward to,” she admitted and added, “I definitely do want to show a deeper side of myself and I think that’s a huge reason of why I really wanted to do the show besides just that I love to dance.”

Be sure to tune in to Dancing With The Stars, tonight, Monday Oct. 11, at 8 PM ET on ABC and tomorrow, Oct. 12 at 8 PM ET.

Tristan Thompson is expecting a baby with a Texas personal trainer, DailyMail.com reports.

The NBA star already has son Prince, 4, with ex-girlfriend and Instagram model Jordan Craig, and daughter True Thompson with ex-girlfriend and IG model Khloe Kardashian, 37.

DailyMail.com posted exclusive photos of heavily pregnant Maralee Nichols, 31, of Houston, Texas, who filed a paternity suit against Thompson.

Nichols is due to give birth to their son on December 3, according to the Mail.

In his response to the suit, the 30-year-old Sacramento Kings star insisted he and Nichols had sexual intercourse only twice in Texas, and he is demanding the case be moved to Texas instead of California.

According to Thompson, the baby was conceived in a Houston hotel room, and the case should be heard in the state, where judges are more conservative.

Thompson readily acknowledges he had sex with Nichols after they attended his 30th birthday bash in Houston in March.

He said she drove him to the event in her Maserati sportscar before returning to his hotel where she had “a special birthday surprise” for him — meaning sex.

Thompson claims that night was the only time he was intimate with Nichols. In court papers he suggested she entrapped him.

“When we got to my hotel room, we immediately had sexual intercourse. Petitioner [Nichols] initiated our sexual contact and never objected to our having sexual intercourse. She was very awake and conscious and did not exhibit any signs that she was other than a willing participant in our sexual activities.

“We did not drink at my hotel room and Petitioner was not drunk. After we had sexual intercourse, Petitioner specifically asked me if she could spend the night because it was my ‘special birthday’ as she called it.

“I told her I had to get up early in the morning but she said it would not be an issue for her. After we had sexual intercourse, we went to bed.”

He confessed they had sex again before the sun came up.

At the time, the Canadian basketball star was still dating ex-girlfriend Khloe, who believed he had changed his ways.

Adam Schulman & Anne Hathaway

Anne Hathaway & husband Adam Schulman looked simply stunning on Thursday as they stepped out for a date night at Soho House in New York City.

Anne Hathaway, 39, and her handsome hubby, Adam Schulman, 40, stepped out in NYC on Thursday evening, walking into Soho House in the Meatpacking District for a date night. The couple, who just celebrated their ninth wedding anniversary in September, held hands as they walked into the establishment, both looking stylish for the occasion at the members-only club.

While Adam wore a navy pea coat, black chinos, and black sneakers, Anne opted for a black turtleneck mini dress over sheer black tights, pairing the look with knee-high black leather boots, a black, quilted bag, and a herringbone-pattern gray mid-length coat. The pair, who share sons Jack, 1, and Jonathan, 5, seemed to have gotten a babysitter for their stylish night out, as Adam wore a face mask for the occasion while Anne went mask-free as she walked from the black SUV to the swanky locale.

The night out in NYC marks another this past week for the couple, who were also rumored to have taken their children to The Nutcracker ballet with pals Bradley Cooper, 46, Irina Shayk, 35, and their daughter, Lea, 4.

Anne and Adam seemed to be enjoying mom & dad’s night out, as both have remained busy this year after their second child was born right before the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic began. The pair were also spotted back in March out to dinner in Santa Monica, California, that time with their two adorable sons in tow.

Anne has also maintained a full schedule despite production complications from the pandemic, next starring in the seven-episode series Solos. And, in 2022, Anne will join Chance the Rapper and Bo Burnham in the Sesame Street film and has three other projects in production — Bum’s RushArmageddon Time, and The Lifeboat. In addition to those projects, the Oscar-winning actress has even more films in production, showing how much the pandemic can’t slow her down!
