While I have been asking myself “how many naps is too many naps?”, Hollywood has been busy.
Kacey Musgraves has filed for divorce
Grammy winning singer-songwriter Kacey Musgraves filed for divorce from husband Ruston Kelly on July 2. Despite sharing with Instagram that they have “a soul connection that can never be erased” – which is exactly how I describe my relationship with cheesecake – the singer stated “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for divorce. The couple wed in October 2017 and their marriage served as inspiration for her album of the year Grammy win, Golden Hour.
I’m having a MAJOR CLOSET SALE TONIGHT @stagetocloset 💜 Sooo many of my everyday clothes, shoes, accessories, and performance looks you’ve seen (like this vintage 2 piece set I’m wearing here) are up for grabs. Proceeds originally were going toward Tennessee Forest Preservation but one light of the tragic events that unfolded earlier this week I will now be donating proceeds to the victims of the awful tornado that just destroyed Nashville and surrounding areas. Head to @stagetocloset for all the deets and send them a DM for a chance to purchase. They’ll get back to you when they can. There’s been an overwhelming response to the sale so please stay patient and know I’m so thankful for your help! New items could possibly be added too so check back often.
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith open up about their relationship
Singer-songwriter August Alsina did an interview talking about his former relationship with Jada, claiming Will Smith gave him his blessing to be with his wife. Jada and Will took to her Facebook show, Red Table Talk, to address the interview and discuss their complicated relationship. In summary, Will and Jada briefly separated, Jada had a relationship with August, and then Will and Jada got back together. It’s widely been speculated that they have an open marriage or one that includes a lot of infidelity. They concluded the episode with a Bad Boys quote, “We ride together, we die together. Bad marriage for life.” Goals?
Naya Rivera presumed drowned
On July 8, Glee actor Naya Rivera and her four-year-old son, Josey, rented a boat at Lake Piru. According to her son, they went swimming and his mother never got back on the boat. He was found sleeping on the boat alone when they didn’t return after the scheduled three-hour rental. Reuters has reported a body was found near where the actor went missing.
Morgan Stewart and Jordan McGraw
E! News host Morgan Stewart and musician Jordan McGraw (son of Dr. Phil), got engaged on July 4. Dr. Phil and his wife, Robin, shared celebratory messages on the couple’s Instagram photos and gifted their son a $10-million mansion for the duo to live in. And here I thought monogrammed dish towels were a nice engagement gift.
Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Justin Mikita welcome first child together
Modern Family actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson and lawyer husband Justin Mikita are new parents to baby boy Beckett Mercer. Beckett was born on July 7 in Vegas and Justin shared the birth announcement on his Instagram to a warm reception by celebs and us mere mortals.
It’s Beckett, Bitch! Thanks to the incredible team at Summerlin hospital - especially Collette. Thanks for taking care of us. Welcome to the world, Beckett Mercer. We love you more than I could’ve ever dreamed of. Thanks for all the messages and congratulations. We are over the moon. 👶🏻 ❤️
Kim Kardashian West sells stake in company
Kim sold 20 per cent stake in her company KKW Beauty to Coty for $200 million. According to Forbes, the deal makes Kim Kardashian West worth approximately $900 million. It is very similar to the deal I struck with my husband where he picks up 100 per cent of our dog’s poop and I hold the leash. Except that deal is priceless.
With many businesses still closed and the pandemic still very much present in our lives, following the news of celebrities is a much-needed activity right now.
