by

As she’s become arguably the world’s greatest gymnast of all time, Simone Biles has had the unwavering support and affection of her proud parents. Here’s everything to know about the Olympian’s mom and dad.

Simone Biles, 24, is known to the world as an exceptional, Olympic gold medal-winning gymnast, and she has her parents, Ronald and Nellie Biles to thank for their ongoing love and support in the process. Ronald and Nellie are actually Simone’s adoptive parents, but that doesn’t make them any less loving toward their all-star gymnast daughter.

“[A]ppreciation post for my sweet parents,” Simone captioned an Instagram post on June 29. “[T]hanks for making sacrifices since day 1 so I can live out my dream. [B]ut most importantly thanks for always being there for me through all the highs and lows. You guys are the absolute best. I love y’all.”

Ronald and Nellie are actually Simone’s adoptive parents, as her mother, Shannon Biles, was unable to care for she and her four other siblings, Adria, Ashley, and Tevin due to her struggles with alcohol and drugs. “I never had mom to run to. I do remember always being hungry and afraid,” Simone said during a TV appearance while on Dancing With the Stars in 2017. Nellie and and Ronald then stepped in, telling Simone and her sister Adria to call them “mom” and “dad,” which Simone said they gladly did. (Ashley and Tevin were taken in by Ronald’s sister.)

“I remember praying for that bonding,” Nellie once told Women’s Health of her experience as an adoptive parent.

Gavin Thomas is all grown up.

When fans first got to know the Minnesotan, he was only 2 years old and could barely form a full sentence. Now, eight years have passed and Gavin is a pre-teen, as evident in his latest photo.

On Tuesday, Oct. 26, Gavin’s mom, Kate, gave his more than 500,000 followers a glimpse of the new pic, bringing up warm memories of Gavin and his uncle Nick Mastodon’s Vine account.

One person responded, “Need wallet sized pics for the whole twitter fam. Proud of u nephew.” Another Twitter user asked the question on all of our minds: “how they grown so fast??”

Recently, Kate spoke to Know Your Meme about Gavin’s status as a bonafide meme star, revealing that she didn’t expect anything to come of those initial videos. She shared, “I would have never imagined that all of this would have happened. We were just taking cute videos and photos of Gavin.”

And though Gavin wasn’t old enough to understand fame just yet, he could tell the videos made people happy and that’s all that mattered to him.

“He was just having fun hanging out with his uncle Nick,” she remembered. “After a little while, he would go find Nick and ask him if they could ‘take a vine.’ He would always laugh at the photos and videos we were posting. Gavin has always loved making people laugh.”

Lala Kent appears to have made up her mind about the future of her relationship with ex-fiancé Randall Emmett, despite his best efforts to convince her otherwise.

Last week, E! News learned that the 31-year-old Vanderpump Rules mainstay had called off her three-year engagement to the 50-year-old film producer. Now, a source tells E! News exclusively that the former couple, who welcomed daughter Ocean in March, is not currently getting back together. 

“Randall has been trying to win her back over,” the insider shares. “He is doing anything to make her happy.”

According to the source, Lala has been at their house and has let Randall spend time with Ocean. “She isn’t going to take Ocean away from her dad,” the insider says. “Lala will continue to co-parent with Randall, but she is done with him romantically at this point.”

However, she is planning on moving out and has even been touring places, per the source.

A second source adds that the pair has indeed been “talking,” given that “Randall doesn’t want to lose Lala,” but this hasn’t yet changed her mind about moving on from the relationship. This source also confirms that Lala “has been apartment hunting” and intends to move out of their home soon.

Forget about pep talks, it’s time for an inspirational Papi talk! 

Terry Bradshaw made history as a NFL all-star, but now the father of three is in the coaching seat…at least when it comes to his family competing on Celebrity Family Feud

“Let’s leave it all on the field,” Terry tells daughters RachelErin and Lacey. While their family trip to Los Angeles has been filled with fun excursions, like a shopping spree at The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Sutton Stracke‘s store and a visit to Terry’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, now it’s time to get down to business. 

Terry has trained his loved ones for the big competition using life-size cutouts of competitor Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider and his family. Terry even told wife Tammy that he “eats guys like [Dee] for breakfast.”

Wendy Williams’ Ex-Husband Kevin Hunter Is Engaged To Sharina Hudson

by

Report

October 26, 2021 10:06PM EDT

Two years after his split from longtime wife Wendy Williams, TV producer Kevin Hunter is reportedly engaged to Sharina Hudson.

Wendy Williams’ ex-husband Kevin Hunter is engaged to Sharina Hudson, the woman he had a longtime affair with during the course of his marriage. According to Page Six, the TV producer bought an $80,000 engagement ring for Sharina as far back as April 2020, and she has been wearing it since then (as evidenced by her Instagram posts). The two share one daughter, Journey, 2, together. HollywoodLife has reached out to Kevin’s rep for comment.

Wendy filed for divorce from Kevin in 2019 after 22 years of marriage. While on Extra earlier this year in January, Wendy called her ex-husband a “serial cheater,” revealing that she has known about his infidelities — and even alluded to Sharina. “Kevin cheated on me while I was pregnant with my son,” she said, referencing their child together, Kevin Hunter Jr., 21. “I didn’t want him to leave me by myself.”

“Kevin was a serial cheater,” the talk show host continued. “Kevin had different mistresses. This last one was the one he had the longest term relationship with.” Her ex-husband seemingly touched on his affair in a 2019 statement issued following their split. “I am not proud of my recent actions and take full accountability and apologize to my wife, my family and her amazing fans,” he wrote, adding that he was “going through a time of self-reflection” and “trying to right some wrongs.”

‘Teen Mom: Young & Pregnant’: Kayla Sessler & Luke Davis’ Romance Hits A Rough Patch

by

Recap

October 26, 2021 10:00PM EDT

On the Oct. 26 episode of ‘Teen Mom: Young & Pregnant’, Kayla Sessler and Luke Davis discuss going to couples counseling after tensions rise over mistrust.

Kayla Sessler and Luke Davis‘ romance hit a rough patch during the Oct. 26 episode of Teen Mom: Young & Pregnant. Ever since she met up with her ex to discuss getting a DNA test for her son, Izaiah, Luke hasn’t been the same, according to Kayla. And when she went out with her girlfriends to celebrate her birthday — without Luke — Luke accused her of blocking him on Snapchat.

Kayla denied doing so, and later admitted that she and Luke keep tabs on each other on social media because they don’t trust each other. Then, upon her return home from Chicago, she and Luke got into an argument over the fact that he asked her to get him a Coca-Cola from the grocery store and she forgot. Things only escalated from there, and when she suggested that his anger towards her might be stemming from her meeting up with her ex, he tried ending the conversation. He refused to talk about the situation, but he did agree to go to couples counseling with her to see how they could get through some of their issues.

‘The Bachelorette’: 1 Man Lies To Michelle & The Other Guys Vow To ‘Expose’ Him

by

Michelle Young had an amazing one-on-one date with one man on ‘The Bachelorette,’ but later in the episode, that same guy told her lies about the other men in the house.

Michelle Young’s connection with Joe Coleman rubbed some of the men the wrong way on the Oct. 26 episode of The Bachelorette. Michelle and Joe both grew up playing basketball in Minnesota, and prior to coming on the show, they had even talked via direct message about basketball. However, Joe ghosted Michelle at the time, so when he came on The Bachelorette, she was unsure about whether or not he was there for the right reasons. She gave him the last rose at the first rose ceremony, and definitely didn’t seem to regret the decision on his group date this week.

The group date conveniently involved basketball, which gave Joe a chance to shine — especially in Michelle’s eyes. “He looked like he was at home and that’s something that’s very familiar to me,” Michelle gushed. “I think that’s why there’s kind of a certain level of comfort with Joe, just because basketball was such a huge part of my life. Going to the gym every single day for hours…that’s what I did. Life was basketball. Not only does he get that basketball life, he gets that Minnesota basketball life.”

Joe’s team lost the basketball group date, but Michelle named him MVP of the game, so he still got to attend the after-party with the winners. At the after-party, Michelle and Joe got to spend more one-on-one time together, and it solidified their connection even further in Michelle’s mind. “I’ve never had chemistry with somebody off the charts this quickly that I was so into getting to know and attracted to,” she admitted.

The Most Eye-Opening Bombshells From Katie Couric's New Book, Going There

by

Katie Couric “Loved” Getting Under Diane Sawyer’s Skin

Katie Couric‘s memoir just came out Tuesday, but it’s been causing raised eyebrows for a month.

From her revelations about competition among her fellow female network stars during her time on Today to her thoughts on her disgraced former co-anchor Matt Lauer, from what she didn’t reveal about Ruth Bader Ginsburg following a 2016 interview to what she was all too happy to share about Prince Harry, the tidbits that served as preview fodder didn’t just drum up anticipation for her 500-page book, Going There.

Rather, all that tea-spilling has had critics and fans alike wondering what sort of game the veteran journalist and TV personality has been playing at all along. 

“I couldn’t imagine writing something that wasn’t honest and radically transparent,” Couric told Today‘s Savannah Guthrie this month during the most personal stop on her press tour. “I didn’t want to do a victory lap or my greatest hits. I think I’ve had an extraordinary life. I’ve had incredible opportunities…. I’ve had huge successes. I’ve had some pretty public failures, too.”

Noting how she has always had a lot of perfect strangers telling her that they feel as if they know her personally thanks to her decades on television, Couric explained, “I wanted to share the messy parts, what real life was like.”

So, readers, she went there.

And we turned the pages at rapid speed to give you a rundown of the book’s most eye-opening bombshells, including a not-all-that-long-ago decision she made that kept her up at night:

Watch Macklemore Get Grilled by His 6-Year-Old Daughter, Who Prefers Taylor Swift and Adele

by

Nothing like your 6-year-old daughter to keep you humble! Macklemore’s daughter Sloane told her dad that his new music is “not your best,” but it would be “great” if you could add in Taylor Swift.

Taylor Swift Changes Album Release Date & Internet Freaks!

Sorry, Macklemore, but in this house we stan Taylor Swift

The 38-year-old rapper got a harsh reality check when he asked his 6-year-old daughter, Sloane, for her thoughts on his upcoming music. Let’s just say it didn’t go according to plan. 

In an adorable video shared to his Instagram, Macklemore revealed Sloane’s hilarious review of his new song “Next Year”—and she was not impressed. “I use [sic] to think I was my own worst critic…Then I had kids,” teased the singer, whose real name is Benjamin Hammond Haggerty.

Sloane can be seen wearing white headphones as she delivers her hot takes: “Not your best but I still love ya.” 

She goes on to ask, “Do you know Camila Cabello?” and “Did you ask Taylor Swift to get on this song?” 

Sloane, who is the oldest of three, takes a sip from a mug and continues with the interrogation. “Adele wasn’t feeling this?” she asks. “Adele and Taylor Swift would be great.” 

Just let her judge the Grammys already! 

She also questions whether “Next Year” is really dad’s best rapping and asks him, “Did Ryan produce this? He’s extra,” referring to Macklemore’s collaborator Ryan Lewis. (Fact check: He did indeed produce the track. She has good ears.) 

Sloane ends her review with one single crumb of positivity, telling him with a straight face,

Ryan Reynolds Is Basically Ted Lasso IRL at Soccer Match With Emily Blunt's Sister

by

Why Ryan Reynolds Is Ultimate Dad Goals!

Ryan Reynolds channeled his inner Ted Lasso at the Wrexham F.C. match, alongside co-owner Rob McElhenney.

Ryan and Rob bought the Welsh soccer team earlier this year, and finally saw their players in action on Tuesday, Oct. 26. The Deadpool and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia actors watched Wrexham go up against Maidenhead United at the York Road stadium, a moment that Ryan described on Instagram as “staggering, heartbreaking, gorgeous, tommy-gun of soul-deadening, evil and beauty.”

He added, “I’m never sleeping again ever ever.”

The actors were joined by Felicity Blunt (who is Emily Blunt‘s sister and Stanley Tucci‘s wife), along with actor Humphrey Ker. Not to mention an entire camera crew, which is documenting Rob and Ryan’s efforts to help the team rise in the rankings.

This marked the first time the Hollywood big shots personally attended a match, as they’ve previously been unable to visit due to filming and other commitments. 

However, Ryan recently shared on Instagram that he finished filming Spirited with Will Ferrell and is ready to devote himself to other projects. As he put it, it’s the “perfect time for a little sabbatical from movie making.” 

It seems the pair is sticking around Wales for some time, with Wrexham team manager Phil Parkinson telling the BBC that the players “look forward to meeting them later in the week.”

Phil is hoping to make a better impression on Ryan and Rob after the team lost the match to Maidenhead, saying, “I’m really disappointed for them that we haven’t been able to come away with at least a draw.
