John Mayer Wants Katy Perry Back!
My source tells me that John Mayer sent roses to Katy Perry after she and Orlando Bloom broke up. Apparently John is desperate to convince her he’s a changed man, but she’s not buying it. She got rid of the roses. She doesn’t believe he can change.
Speaking of Katy Perry, she has purchased a $19 million Beverly Hills home. It has 5 bedrooms, an infinity pool and it is surrounded by a eucalyptus forest. Neighbours include Adele, Ashton Kutcher, Cameron Diaz and Nicole Richie.
Mariah Carey sometime sings Happy Birthday to her friends instead of getting them a birthday gift. One alleged friend says, “Mariah called me on my birthday and sang happy birthday into my answering service. She sang the whole song and then hung up. It is the best present I have ever received and I will save that message for eternity. a custom private performance from the greatest singer ever– that is priceless.”
Former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards has revealed that she once dated President Donald Trump. "I heard a rumor you once dated Donald Trump," Real Housewives producer Andy Cohen declares in a teaser for next week's reunion episode. "Yes. I had a dinner with him. I had dinner with Donald," she confirms. Her co-star Lisa Vanderpump presses for details by asking, "Sex or not? Did you see him naked?" As the others begin laughing, Kim exclaims, "I don’t want to get into it! I don’t want to talk about the president."
Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx may be Hollywood's biggest are-they-or-aren't-they couple, but according to my source, the two are finally ready to take their relationship public. "Katie used to be super-worried about public attention...Katie is tired of playing the hiding game," says a source, while a second insider says, "To make it impossible to get photo evidence that they are together, they traveled in cars with tinted windows and took secret back elevators. They had it down to a science." The second source notes that after Katie and Jamie were photographed together by a fellow diner at a New York restaurant earlier this month, "they're going to go out to dinner more and are talking about a trip to Europe." Katie and Jamie allegedly first started dating in 2013, while Jamie co-starred with Katie’s ex-husband Tom Cruise in the 2002 film Collateral Damage.

Shania will make her debut on the Monday, April 24th episode.
Harry Styles shared some big news on Twitter Thursday about his upcoming debut solo album, revealing that the self-titled project officially comes out on May 12th. Harry also shared the album's 10-song track list and cover art, which shows the One Directioner posing topless in a pool of pink-colored water. Song titles on Harry Styles include one that's mysteriously called "Woman," plus songs called "Kiwi," "Meet Me in the Hallway," and "From the Dining Table." Harry, who will appear as the musical guest on this weekend's SNL, debuted the album's lead single "Sign of the Times" earlier this month.
Survivor host Jeff Probst and others strongly condemned the outing of contestant Zeke Smith as transgender in Wednesday night’s episode.
Jeff Varner outed him during a tribal council, which is bad enough, critics say, but the manner in which it was done was unforgivable.
Jeff Varner accused Zeke of being deceitful, asking him: “Why haven’t you told anyone that you’re transgender?” Fellow castaways were quick to come to Zeke’s defense, and Jeff was the one who left the Island.
Host, Jeff Probst says, “I cannot imagine anyone thinking what was done to Zeke was OK on any level, under any circumstances.”
Gay rights group GLAAD issued a statement that reads in part: “Zeke Smith, and transgender people like him, are not deceiving anyone by being their authentic selves, and it is dangerous and unacceptable to out a transgender person.”
Now that Brad Pitt is single, at least one of my sources tells me that several of his ex-girlfriends have been getting back in touch with him.
And let's deal with the elephant in the room first thing: Jennifer Aniston is NOT one of them. She is happily married . . . happily, as far as we know.
Some of Brad’s exes include, Juliette Lewis, Christina Applegate, Thandie Newton, and Gwyneth Paltrow.
Some of these go way back, like Christina. Brad was still pretty much an unknown when they went to the "MTV Movie Awards" together in 1989. And Christina later said she regretted leaving with someone else.
He dated Thandie briefly in 1994, after they did "Interview with the Vampire" together.
He dated Juliette from 1990 to '93. They did two movies together: "Too Young to Die?" and "Kalifornia".
And of course, he was with Gwyneth from 1994 to 1997, right before he hooked up with Jennifer Aniston.
Now Gwyneth is in a relationship, and Thandie and Christina are both married. Soooo… I guess that leaves Juliette?
If you're one of those people who've been rooting for Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner to get back together, I have bad news for you: It's over. They have officially filed for divorce. But they did it together, and my source says it was "super amicable," if that makes you feel any better.
They've agreed on joint legal and physical custody of their three kids, and they'll work out the division of property and spousal support later.
Ben and Jen were married for 10 years. They were married in June of 2005, and announced their split in June of 2015.
