Former ‘Bachelorette’ Contestant Tyler Gwozdz Dead At 29 After Suspected Overdose

One of Hannah Brown’s former Bachelorette suitors had died.

According to reports, the body of Tyler Gwozdz (above) is at the Palm Beach County Medical Examiner’s Office. His date of death is listed as January 22, a week after the Boca Raton PD say they responded to a 911 call for a “medical overdose” involving Gwozdz on January 13.

The 29-year-old, who competed on Hannah B.’s season of the hit ABC reality show, was taken to a hospital and admitted to the ICU, where he stayed for a week and was listed in critical but stable condition. The department added the case is “an active and ongoing investigation,” but the cause of death is a suspected overdose, according to TMZ.

The outlet reports that during the 911 call, a woman told dispatchers the reality star might have taken heroin. The caller was frantically trying to get into a bathroom in which Tyler had locked himself; eventually, the woman broke through the door and turned him on his back before an ambulance arrived.

Tyler was briefly on season 15 of the dating competition — but was mysteriously sent home after three weeks and a one-on-one date with Hannah, after which he received a rose. The reason for his removal was never disclosed, with Brown only saying:

“Tyler G. had to leave, and that’s upsetting, because I really enjoyed my date with him.”

After his removal, Brown told ET the date was “really good” and applauded Gwozdz for being “calming and nurturing.”

However, a Reddit thread painted a much different picture of the aspiring psychologist. Right before filming began, an anonymous poster claimed to know two people who went to high school with Gwozdz and allegedly called him an “extreme misogynist,” with one claiming he once “spit on” a girlfriend during a breakup.

Fans believed these claims are what led production to remove Gwozdz from the show. Tyler later spoke out about the thread, however, and dismissed it as “totally unsubstantiated rumors.” He wrote in an email to Refinery29:

“I continue to have faith in my journey and in a purpose for everything that’s happened to me in my life. Above everything else, I am a son to my mother. She raised me to be better than these sort of baseless accusations. The rumors are so far out of the realm of my personality and values that it seems silly to waste time denying, but I suppose I will for the record. BUT I will be alright.”

He went on to explain the reason for his departure wasn’t aired in order to respect his privacy, and that he came to the decision to exit the show with producers, adding:

“[S]omething that I’ve come to realize… [it] is the best decision that could’ve been made.”

According to Cam Ayala, another rose-seeker on Brown’s season, producers told the contestants it was “in the best interest for Hannah and for Tyler for him to no longer be here.”

Bachelor Nation staple Colton Underwood also weighed in on Tyler’s exit, telling ET:

“I’ll say if there’s a guy that was removed because of production, it was probably something that they didn’t want out there.”

Our hearts go out to his loved ones.

Gwyneth Paltrow Explains The Infamous Vagina Candle!

You’ve probably heard of it… heck, you may even have smelled it by now! It’s Gwyneth Paltrow‘s vagina!

OK, technically it’s not called that. No, the new product flying off the shelves from GOOP is actually called “This Smells Like My Vagina.” But yes, it is a genital-scented candle. We assume a waxed one. *badum-psh!*

For real though, what the ever-lovin’ eff was Gwyneth thinking with this one?? Women spend millions on beauty products every year to cover up their natural odors, and the Avengers: Endgame star made one you can waft towards yourself.

Related: Gwyneth Jokes Her Sex Life With Husband Brad Falchuk Is Over

So how did this happen??

“It sort of started as a joke,” as she explained on Wednesday’s Late Night With Seth Meyers.

“I was with ‘The Nose’ Douglas Little for his brand “Heretic,” and we were kind of messing around. And I smelled this beautiful thing and I was like, ‘This smells like my vagina.’ And I was kidding, obviously. And we were on mushrooms… No! We weren’t on mushrooms!”

Man, she can’t stop kidding! LOLz!

But she wasn’t joking when she released the candle with that name printed on the label! Like many, let us say inside jokes, it just grew and grew. Gwyneth recounted:

“It actually became a really funny thing where it was, A: Really funny to us, but also a little bit punk rock.”

Punk rock? Well, “This Smells Like My Vagina” does sound like the title of a Vandals song we guess. But there was more to it. Gwyneth continued:

“And, you know, I think women, a lot of us have grown up feeling certain degrees of shame around or body, or whatever. So this is just a little bit of a, you know, subversive candle for all of us out there.”

But does it really smell like her vajayjay? She certainly isn’t opening up about that aspect if it does. We have to imagine half the people buying this thing are doing so out of sheer morbid curiosity, and if she admitted it was really just a mix of lavender and passionfruit that would definitely ruin the, er, feminine mystique of it all.

We think maybe Gwyneth intends the candle to be a feminist statement sort of taking back the idea of the natural smell of a woman in general, not her specifically. After all, if the candle Goop was selling was called Gwyneth’s Vagina that would be the most narcissistic thing anyone has ever done, and… Well… OK, we guess it’s possible. LOLz!

Team Aidan Or Team Big?? Sarah Jessica Parker Answers The Ultimate ‘Sex And The City’ Question!

There’s only two types of people in this world: Team Aidan or Team Big. OK, that’s not true, you could be Team Berger, but if so, we sincerely hope you have a good support system in place to get you the help you need.

For real though, Sex and the City fans have long fallen into two warring camps about which on-again, off-again suitor Carrie Bradshaw should have ended up with. There are those who believe she should have locked it down with the tall, kind, relaxed, dog-loving, wood-working, sexy Aidan, and then there are the wrong ones. LOLz!

No, Mr. Big has his fans, too, people who like the arrogant, rich, old-fashioned, cigar-smoking man’s man who is only vaguely aware of your feelings. As Annie Lennox taught us, some actually want to be abused.

OK, sorry, we’ve obviously chosen a side here. But we’re not here to convince you, we’re letting you know where the woman herself falls! Yes, Sarah Jessica Parker has made her choice once and for all.

Related: Which Celeb Guest Star Got Inappropriate With Sarah??

On Wednesday’s very special episode of The Bradshaw Boys, a podcast in which three men rewatch and weigh in on the entire series, SJP actually called in for an interview — and they asked her the big question. Or the Big question we suppose. And she actually answered!

You can find her entire answer at about the 20:40 mark (above), but here’s what she said:

“As you can imagine, this puts me in a terrible position.”

BUT??

“There is a very quick and simple answer. You have to be Team Big, or Team John (Big’s real name) I guess, only because you can’t tell a story that long and not in the most conventional way kind of root for that ending.”

You can if you want your main character to grow and learn lessons. Sorry, continue:

“And I love Chris Noth so much, and it felt wonderfully and skillfully written by Michael Patrick [King].”

See, that’s sweet, but it’s also more of a meta answer. She’s too close to it; Carrie did end up with Big, and Sarah can’t exactly disagree with her showrunner without causing problems for herself! However, she does say:

“But I love John Corbett so much and I loved Aidan. I loved his Aidan. The best of both worlds is in fact having your cake and eating it too. So I feel like I got both teams. Ultimately, Carrie should have ended up with Big, but it was a delight to mess around before she arrived at that.”

You know, we hadn’t really thought about it before, but maybe Carrie should have ended up with Big. Because she doesn’t deserve Aidan!

In a way, she’s actually kind of Aidan’s Berger…

See, now we too need to rewatch the entire series to figure all this out. But where do YOU stand, SATC stans?? Team Aidan or Team Big? Let us know in the comments (below)!

Jennifer Aniston Is ‘Happy’ To Have Brad Pitt Back In Her Life… As A ‘Friend’!

Jennifer Aniston loved reconnecting with her friends at the SAG Awards on Sunday — that includes her ex-husband, Brad Pitt!

As we reported, the former spouses broke the internet over the weekend when they were photographed greeting each other backstage at the awards show after each had one a Screen Actors Guild Award; Pitt for Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood and Jen for her Apple TV+ series The Morning Show

On the heels of the historic moment, a source told People that the pair are genuinely “happy” for each other and excited to be back in the other’s life… as friends!

The insider dished:

“Jen was happy for Brad. They congratulated each other and that was it.”

The source added the 50-year-old actress “is not dating Brad” and was merely just enjoying the “emotional night,” noting:

“They are friends and happy for each other. They want nothing but happiness for each other. She is happy to have Brad back in her life as a friend, but that’s it.”

Jen certainly seemed happy during and after Sunday’s ceremony.

An Us Weekly source previously spoke on the Friends icon’s emotional wave throughout the show, sharing:

“She was so happy, thrilled and surprised while explaining how she felt excited and overwhelmed. She was also making jokes with reporters during the interview.”

Another insider shared to In Touch about Jen’s undeniable glee:

“Reporters were commenting that this was the happiest they’ve ever seen her, the best mood they ever witnessed from the typically press-shy, more closed off Jen.”

Clearly, making peace with Brad agrees with her!

The industry vet even referenced her 56-year-old ex while speaking to the press following her big win for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series. She said:

“We’ve all grown up together, we really have. And it just feels like a really fun night to celebrate and cheer each other on and keep working. It’s dark hours–they’re not dark hours, but, you know, you don’t really have that much of a life, so it’s nice to come out and put a pretty dress on and sort of celebrate your friends and their work, and inspire each other to keep going — and like [Brad] said, it’s back to work tomorrow.”

Sounds like Jen gets by with a little help from her… well, you know.

Prince Harry Wants To Put A ‘Stop’ To ‘The Crown’ Before They Cover His Life!

Netflix is rumored to be courting Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for potential collaborations, but that doesn’t mean the pair doesn’t have an issue with THAT series.

The Crown has received acclaim over the past three seasons for its drama-filled portrayal of the royal family. The first season of the series starts by taking place in 1947, five years before Queen Elizabeth II‘s reign began, and season 3 ends in 1977. Currently, season 4 is in production and will likely cover about 10 years.

But if Harry has anything to do with it, we may never get to see any parts of his life!

Related: Claire Foy Was Paid Less Per Episode Than Matt Smith For ‘The Crown’

In a new interview with BBC Breakfast, biographer Angela Levin, who previously interviewed the Duke of Sussex for her 2018 book, Harry: Conversations With the Prince, said he brought up the series during their first meeting.

Levin shared:

“Harry, when I went to interview him in the Palace, the first thing he said to me when he shook my hand was, ‘Are you watching The Crown?’ And I hadn’t been at the time, I felt very embarrassed and I got it and he said, ‘I’m going to make sure I stop it before they get to me.’”

Inneresting!!

Following the current structure of about ten years per season, season 8 would cover 2007-2017, and season 9 would be 2017-2027. From what the 35-year-old reportedly said, it’s unclear if he meant his present-day life as a husband and father or any parts at all.

In case you need a refresher on royal history, Princess Diana and Prince Charles wed in 1981, Prince William was born in 1982, followed by Harry’s birth in 1984. So, if the timing is right, we should be seeing the birth of both boys in season 4 which is set to drop in late 2020.

Many have wondered how the Windsors feel about their portrayals on the series, and we’ve heard conflicting reports so far! Royal expert Katie Nicholl previously revealed to ET that the Sussexes did watch the series during the early days of their relationship. Maybe because it was a good way for Meg to brush up on her future husband’s family??

Nicholl shared with the outlet:

“But what was so lovely was that they just had a very normal courtship. It was all behind the closed doors of the palace or Meghan’s Toronto apartment. But when she came over and stayed with Prince Harry at Notting Cottage, I was told that they loved nothing more than cooking some nice food, catching up on Netflix and watching The Crown, which they apparently watch together.”

Meanwhile, we’ve heard William is NOT a fan. In an interview on The Graham Norton Show in November, Olivia Colman (who stars as Her Majesty in seasons 3 and 4) discussed her uncomfortable interaction with the future monarch:

“It didn’t go very well. I met Prince William at a dinner, and he asked what I was doing at the moment before he quickly added, ‘Actually, I know what you’re doing.’ I was so excited and asked, ‘Have you watched it?’ His answer was a firm, ‘No.’ But he was very charming and very lovely.”

Thoughts on all this, Perezcious TV experts?? Most of what’s gone down in the past few months would make for a great binge watch! Sound OFF (below) in the comments and let us know!!

Watch The Jonas Brothers Get DRUNK & Write A FILTHY Song!

This may be the most raucous edition of “Day Drinking” Seth Meyers has ever done! Must be all the testosterone…

On Tuesday’s Late Night, the Jonas Brothers dropped by and drank and played games and drank and sang and DRANK.

So as not to be outnumbered, Seth enlisted the help of his hot brother Josh Meyers and 30 Rock star Jack McBrayer, who isn’t related at all but whose name almost rhymes with theirs if you’re really drunk.

In addition to some very stupid drinking games, the bros also took on the challenge of writing and performing a song in just five minutes given only a pre-written title drawn from a bucket. The Jonas Brothers got In Bed By 9 which they managed to turn into an impressively filthy song using the number 69. Bet you never thought you’d see this back in the purity ring days!

‘Arrow’ Actor Stephen Amell Gets Real About Mental Health After Suffering A Panic Attack Mid-Interview

Stephen Amell is opening up about mental health struggles after a recent interview about his hit show Arrow took a turn for the worse.

During a December appearance on Michael Rosenbaum‘s Inside of You podcast just now making the rounds, the 38-year-old star was discussing the CW drama’s 8th and final season when he began to have a scary panic attack!

Related: See ‘The Hills’ OG Cast Members Sweet Mini-Reunion! 

The taped conversation began on an emotional high note as Amell got real about being at his wits’ end and being completely burnt out mentally, physically, and emotionally following his 8-year tenure with Arrow. After this, Stephen started to have an anxiety attack.

“Is it hot in here or am I just sweating?” said the actor before sharing that he might be sick and needed to cut the interview short. He explained:

“I’m not feeling well at all. I think I just got to go. I just kind of want to walk. I just need fresh air.”

The episode’s synopsis explains he left the show in “an unprecedented manner,” but later returned “with enough bravery to re-address his current mental health.”

When the interview picks back up two weeks later, the Canadian-born star was in much better spirits and admitted he “should’ve canceled” the scheduled interview. He went on to explain he hadn’t fully processed the show’s ending nor the physical and mental stress he endured on set playing the superhero Green Arrow all of these years.

Despite a long run playing the beloved character, Amell was more than ready to move on with his life:

“I just feel like I’ve been trying to do things for people for the past eight years, and I just need a f***ing break.”

The actor said he used the time between recordings to focus on self-care, which included working out, talking to his wife, and meditating. He also received medical treatment, too:

“I went home, I laid on the couch, I had an IV service come to the house, and they just pumped me full of fluid and vitamins.”

Glad to hear he’s doing better!

A panic attack isn’t an easy thing to go through, but we absolutely commend both parties for shining light on such a sensitive topic. They could’ve certainly omitted the part where things went south, but hearing it all go down will definitely have an impact on listeners.

Amell also explained the situation again on Twitter, promoting the episode while telling fans:

“I did Rosey’s podcast after Arrow ended. We had to cut it short because I had a full on panic attack. It wasn’t pretty. I came back a few weeks ago to chat about it. I was in a really bad spot and I’m happy to report that I’m doing much better. Listen please :)”

Here’s Why Kelly Ripa Quit Drinking!

Kelly Ripa is living her best life all because she’s finally been able to embrace having a co-host that she loves: Ryan Seacrest. And it sounds like their great relationship on-air is doing amazing things for the 49-year-old woman’s personal life and overall health, too!

Related: Seacrest Fell Out Of His Chair On Live TV And We Can’t Stop Watching It!

This all came about on Monday’s episode of Live! With Kelly and Ryan, where the pair was opining about how there’d been a recent drop in wine sales across America. Shocked by the news, Ripa delivered a perfect self-deprecating quip about the dip, saying (below):

“I believe this is because I quit drinking, that I caused this dip.”

Ha!!!

Interesting that Kelly would open up about giving up alcohol. Seacrest himself picked up on it, and added a comment into the mix, noting his arrival on the daytime TV mainstay:

“I started the show [in 2017] and she quit drinking, what does that tell you? I don’t know. Is that good or bad?”

“It’s amazing,” Ripa replied, nearly before he could even get the line out.

Love it!!!

Great Chemistry Since Day One

Back in 2017 when Seacrest first joined Live!, it was pretty clear things were going to work almost immediately. The two hosts had chemistry with each other, getting along great on-air and off, and they both said wonderful things about each other at the time if you’ll recall.

Speaking to ET way back then about his initial impression of Kelly, Seacrest noted things had already progressed quickly with their rapport, saying:

“I’m actually, genuinely excited to see [Kelly] every morning. I know in the past, sometimes you didn’t say hi before you go on the air… I like to say hi before we go on the air. We don’t talk about too much, but I still give you a little more than hi.”

Well then!

Related: What’s Up With Seacrest’s Dating Life Right Now?!

And the daytime TV mainstay doubled down with her own take on the pairing, speaking glowingly of Ryan as a person both on-camera and behind the scenes, too:

“Ryan is exactly who he is, off-camera and on — sincere and genuine and authentic with every person.”

That’s really about all you can ask for, isn’t it?!

So happy these two on-air hosts found each other to be so perfect in a professional setting like this… and even more happy that it’s apparently turned into better health and happy days for Kelly as she gets through her big-time job every morning! So great!

Jerry O’Connell Reveals Which ‘Real Housewives’ Couple He & Rebecca Romijn Role-Play As!

No one finds the Bravo-verse more exciting than Jerry O’Connell!

The 45-year-old actor spilled some very intimate tea about his and wife Rebecca Romijn’s bedroom activities on Monday’s episode of Watch What Happens Live when a caller asked if they had ever role-played as a Bravo couple.

Related: Which ‘Real Housewives’ Star Was ‘Rude’ To Rebecca & Jerry?!

What started out as a very subtle answer turned into a full-on, passionate monologue from the Stand By Me star as a certain Real Housewives personality. He said:

“I don’t want to name any names. I don’t want to put anybody on blast. But let’s just say I like to play a husband who’s maybe been deported and comes back—maybe just for a quick…visit. You know, what I’m talking about, Tre? We only got a couple of minutes before ICE is in here. Come on, let’s do this. That’s what I like to do.”

Haaaa!

If you couldn’t tell, Jerry was referring to Joe Giudice and Teresa Giudice. Fans know the RHONJ alum is awaiting the final decision in his deportation case in Italy.

Joe Giudice will reportedly be released from prison on Thursday.

Sadly, the distance recently caused Tre and Joe to end their marriage of over 20 years. But Juicy Joe seems to be very understanding about the whole thing. He wrote on Instagram following their breakup announcement:

“Life is too short to be angry. Life is too short to be resentful. Life is too short to hold on to the past. Life is too short not to love. Life is too short not to be happy. Life is too short not to forgive. Life is too short not to live our lives the way we want it. Love life. Appreciate the people in it. Enjoy the present. Seize the moment. Life is worth living for, so let’s LIVE!”

Teresa seems to be doing just that — and it sounds like there’s no hard feelings between her and Joe. Case in point, she publicly LOL’ed at Jerry’s role-playing admission, writing underneath an Instagram post about the late-night interview:

“I am dying lol.”

It is important to note, however, that Rebecca might have a crush on a different Bravolebrity altogether. Elsewhere in the interview with Andy Cohen, Jerry said the 47-year-old actress is a big fan of Below Deck Mediterranean‘s João Franco.

He confessed:

“She’s mostly a João guy. She really talks a lot about him. She was very excited when at the end of last season he got promoted to captain. She was like, ‘He’s really moving up in the world.’”

Hey, whatever floats their boats! LOLz!

Fans of The Hills can rejoice once more!

MTV treated viewers to a blast from the past last year when they green lit The Hills: New Beginnings and put some of our favorite former reality TV stars back on our screens once more, including OG cast members Audrina Patridge and Heidi Montag.

Kristin Cavallari was one of the few who opted out of the televised reboot — but she and her aforementioned co-stars had a mini reunion of their own when they all crossed paths in Nashville, Tennessee on Monday. We are so here for it!

It all went down when Patridge and Montag stopped by the Uncommon James jewelry store, founded by Cavallari. See the sweet shot of all three ladies together (below):

Awww, nice! This pic feels so nostalgic and we low-key wonder if Lauren Conrad feels any sort of way about it. You know, since she’s made such a point to distance herself from the cast over the years?

We all know LC and Heidi buried their friendship in the ground ages ago. and no one can forget about Lauren and Kristin’s longtime feud. But how epic would it have been to see all of them standing side-by-side again after so much time has passed? Either way, it won’t matter much since the trio already has big plans to continue their reunion on-camera for us all to see!

In the caption of her post, Kristin revealed Audrina and Spencer Pratt‘s wife will be featured on an upcoming episode of her show. She wrote:

“WHEN THE HILLS AND VERY CAVALLARI COLLIDE! Today with these 2 pretty ladies who will be on an upcoming episode of @verycavallari in a few weeks! @audrinapatridge @heidimontag”

Very Cavallari began airing in 2018 and follows the 33-year-old entrepreneur as she juggles family, friends, her marriage to Jay Cutler, and her growing personal business ventures.

It’s unclear at this point what the two former stars of The Hills will be doing when they make an appearance. It could be something along the lines of talking business together — a potential partnership with Pratt Daddy crystals, perhaps?

Selfishly, we’re hoping they just spill tea about their time on the show, ha!

Nevertheless, the sight of all three women together has got fans losing it!

“My 14-year-old self is screaming,” said one enthusiastic IG commenter. “You all look amazing! Glad you are all still friends and look happy,” wrote another. Ditto!

So, tell us, Perezcious readers! How are YOU feeling about all of this? Sound OFF with your reactions in the comments (below).

Twitter Points Out Anna Paquin Had More Lines In SAG Awards Speech Than She Did In ‘The Irishman’!

Twitter did not stay silent during Anna Paquin’s SAG Awards speech!

During Sunday’s ceremony, the 37-year-old joined her The Irishman co-stars Ray Romano and Harvey Keitel to present the Netflix crime drama as one of the nominees for outstanding performance by a cast in a motion picture. Viewers couldn’t help but notice that Paquin had a lot to say on stage — at least when compared to her nearly-silent role in Martin Scorsese‘s film.

As Twitics pointed out, the Oscar winner spoke more during her brief speech at the awards show than she did in the three-and-a-half-hour film, which saw her character utter a total of seven lines of dialogue.

Paquin’s small role in the mob epic already sparked backlash when the film was released late last year, with some viewers blasting her mostly muted character in a film full of very talkative men.

The actress responded to the outrage back in November, explaining to upset viewers that silence was a key component of her character, Peggy Sheeran, the daughter of mafia hitman Frank Sheeran, played by Robert De Niro. She wrote on Twitter at the time:

“Nope, nobody was doing any ‘ordering’. I auditioned for the privilege of joining the incredible cast of @TheIrishmanFilm and I’m incredibly proud to get to be a part of this film.”

De Niro also defended Paquin’s role last month, telling USA Today that her performance was “very powerful.” He said:

“She was very powerful and that’s what it was. Maybe in other scenes there could’ve been some interaction between Frank and her possibly, but that’s how it was done. She’s terrific and it resonates.”

Well, it appears some fans are still bitter about it: on Sunday night, more than a few Twitter users used the actress’ speech to revisit her not-so-chatty character in the film.

VOTE: Who Was Best Dressed At The SAG Awards??

The following was tweeted:

“Anna Paquin finally gets to speak for The Irishman. #SAGAwards.”

“Anna Paquin with more words presenting “The Irishman” than she had in the movie. #SAGAwards”

“Anna Paquin just spoke more words presenting The Irishman than she did in the movie. #SAGAwards”

“Similar to The Irishman, the intro for The Irishman at @SAGawards was Anna Paquin being pushed into the background in favor of aging white men. #SAGAwards #Annoying.”

Few remained tight lipped — yet not everyone subscribed to Twitter’s mob mentality. Many fans sided with De Niro and Paquin about the character and the role Peggy played in the story, with one tweeting:

“I think Anna Paquin’s silence in the movie speaks volumes.”

What do U think, Perezcious readers? Are these upset fans onto something, or should they take a note from Peggy Sheeran and pipe down?

Netflix Expresses Interest In Working With Meghan Markle & Prince Harry Post-Megxit

Could Meghan Markle and Prince Harry‘s next move be coming to a streaming service near you?!

Apparently, Netflix is just one of the many global companies eyeing up the Sussexes as they prepare to enter their new “financially independent” phase.

Related: Oprah Winfrey Denies Counseling Meghan Markle Over Megxit Strategy

Ted Sarandos, the streaming giant’s chief content officer shared with The Guardian on Saturday:

“Who wouldn’t be interested? Yes, sure.”

We already know the couple is currently working on a mental health-focused docuseries in collaboration with Oprah Winfrey for Apple TV+ launching this year, so we’re definitely intrigued to see what they could work on with Netflix!

As we previously reported, an insider revealed to ET the pair is drawing major inspiration from fellow famous couples such as Barack and Michelle Obama, and Bill and Hillary Clinton, who have each established successful foundations of their own.

Ideally, a “model like the Clintons or Obamas” will allow them to create “meaningful work while making a living.” We’re so here for it!! The confidant explained:

“They need to find a balance where they raise money for their new foundation and have money-making ventures to support themselves.”

ICYMI, a charitable foundation — Sussex Royal, The Foundation of the D&D of Sussex — is rumored to already be underway after Meg made headway during the holiday season in El Lay. A confidant shared with DailyMailTV in December:

“Even in her younger years in Hollywood, she wanted to work towards creating an international charity changing lives. Now that she has the platform and profile of being a British royal she can truly build this plan. She sees this foundation as one of the key factors in creating a legacy as a new royal and Harry is right behind her. She is plowing much of her time and energy into getting every aspect of the charity ready.”

It seems the Suits alum is making the rounds with many of the major companies! She has reportedly already signed a deal with Disney (there’s some video evidence to back this up) to do voiceover work on a future unnamed project in exchange for a donation to Elephants Without Borders on her behalf instead of taking a paycheck.

What do U think the pair would work on in collaboration with Netflix, Perezcious readers?! We want to hear your thoughts!! Share ’em (below) in the comments!!

Brad Pitt & Jennifer Aniston Connecting Backstage At The SAG Awards Is EVERYTHING!

Talk about a memorable moment!

Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston reunited backstage at the SAG Awards on Sunday night, giving fans and viewers SO much to talk about on social media and setting off a press firestorm! The whole thing was captured on camera, too, making it even better for us! LOLz!

Related: Brad Pitt Says Bradley Cooper Helped Him Get Sober!

It all started when Pitt gave an acceptance speech for his Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role for his work in Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood. During the moment, as you can see below, he quipped about playing a guy who “doesn’t get on with his wife,” when the cameras cut to the former sitcom actress, showcasing her reaction:

And so, the stage was set, and the Seven actor quickly retreated backstage post-speech. Then, this pic was snapped by THR while he stopped everything he was doing to watch the former Friends star’s win an award and give her own acceptance speech during the Sunday special:

Awww! Supportive exes… Love it! After the 50-year-old finished her speech — she won for her performance in The Morning Show, BTW — she, too, popped backstage to make the media rounds. And that’s when worlds collided! The 56-year-old Fight Club actor and his ex-wife had a joyous, emotional reunion of sorts that was caught on camera for the world to see, and we seriously can’t stop thinking about it now.

To steal a line from one of Aniston’s long-time co-stars… could these two BE any cuter?! LOLz!!!

Social media erupts!

Not surprisingly, EVERYBODY had something to say about Pitt and Aniston’s momentous reunion. These two haven’t been together for 15 years now, but to see their faces backstage — and to hear all the highly-opinionated reactions to the moment — you’d think they were the only celeb couple alive! Ha!

“Brad,” one responder wrote in adoration, “when u win the Oscar, propose to Jen live—I swear it will reverse climate change. Fingers crossed. Love, a regular person in love with my soul mate💓”

That’s cute!

“Jennifer Aniston is awesome,” wrote another Twitter user, showing slightly, umm, less adoration for Pitt. “Most forgiving person on the planet. Still wish she was with [Justin Theroux], though.” Yikes! Still, others were divided on the entire thing, with fans writing things like this:

“Brad knows Jen is good people and deserves good things, and he is just genuinely happy for her. That’s all.”

And more:

“Is it just me or are Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston becoming the Ross and Rachel of this awards season? #WillTheyOrWontThey”

Ha! But others were more pessimistic about the meeting — and more specifically, about Pitt himself, for seemingly returning to his ex again knowing the state he initially left Aniston in after so many years with Angelina Jolie. One cutting tweet read:

“Let’s see him get together with his children. He gets adulation for growing hair and smiling. Angie’s herding kids daily. Give her an award.”

And another user added:

“15 years ago, they broke up because fell for another woman with whom he ended up having 6 kids. Move on.”

There was more:

“I would infinitely prefer Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston to get together than see either of them ever get back with Brad Pitt”

…and more:

“Have we forgotten that Brad cheated on Jennifer and then went on to publicly humiliate her? Or are we doing that thing where we blame the other woman, Angelina, and try and make it seem like she’s some witch that cast a spell on him? Please. He needs to leave Jennifer alone.”

and more:

“Borderline hysterical people, mostly women, forgetting that Brad Pitt HAD Jennifer Aniston, chose to have an affair, chose to leave her, divorce her and marry the other woman. It’s nice that they are civil but personally, that’s not something I’m rushing back to with open arms 🤷‍♀️”

Yeah. You get the idea.

What do YOU think, though, Perezcious readers?! Are you loving Brad and Jen’s latest mini-reunion, or does it feel dirty to you based on Pitt’s past behavior and track record??

Heidi Klum Clarifies Her Comments About Gabrielle Union & ‘AGT’ Controversy: ‘My Experience May Not Be The Same’

Heidi Klum has Gabrielle Union‘s back — even if they’ve had seriously different experiences on America’s Got Talent.

The supermodel spoke this week at the Television Critics Association‘s winter press tour, and sought to clarify her earlier comments about Union, and the controversy that enveloped the reality competition show for the last few months.

Related: Julianne Hough Praises Gabrielle Union Amid ‘AGT’ Exit Controversy

As you may recall, Klum initially had said she did not have the same experience as Union did while judging on the show, and her time there had largely been a ‘positive’ experience. But while that may have been the case for the 46-year-old superstar, she wanted to clarify openly that just because she had a good experience with the show, it doesn’t mean she intended to negate the former Bring It On star’s story of her own bad experience.

In a statement to People, Klum opened up about the controversy, saying (below):

“Recently, a reporter asked me to share my thoughts about Gabrielle Union’s experiences while working as a judge on America’s Got Talent. I told the reporter that I had not experienced similar issues while I was a judge on the show — my experience was a positive one. I can only speak of my own truth, and by no means is that meant to negate or question Gabrielle’s truth.”

And she continued on, adding more about her own experiences with race, including having previously been married to Seal (below):

“I am aware that my experience may not be the same as Gabrielle’s. What I can tell you is that I am a fierce advocate for all people, no matter their race, age, religion, gender or sexuality. Everyone should be treated equally and with utmost respect. Personally, I have experienced very hurtful things while being married to a man of color and having three beautiful children with him. While everyone’s challenges are different, I want nothing more than for a just world and for people to be kinder to one another.”

Well then!

Klum judged AGT for six seasons, right up until May 2019, when she left and was eventually replaced by Union and Julianne Hough. News broke in late November, then, that Union and  Hough would not be returning for the show’s 15th season, and from there, all hell broke loose after Union reportedly expressed concerns over alleged racial insensitivity on set.

Clearly, Klum wants to make it known that she doesn’t condone any of that, whatsoever.

Mama June Is Now Pawning Personal Items For Cash As Her Bizarre Road Trip Continues…

Mama June Shannon may once again be in dire financial straits, at least if her recent actions are to be believed…

According to reports from Stockbridge, Georgia — where she was alongside boyfriend Geno Doak on Thursday morning — the former reality TV star and Honey Boo Boo‘s estranged mom was seen by witnesses pawning a diamond ring. Worse yet, she apparently took a VERY low-ball offer! Oh, no!

Related: Cops Called After Mama June Allegedly Trashes Georgia Hotel Room!

Per TMZ, eyewitnesses on the scene apparently noticed that Mama June was unloading a nice diamond ring which “resembled a wedding or engagement ring.” And although it doesn’t appear as though she gave much of a reason why she wanted to sell off the ring, employees of the Cash America pawn shop in that town weren’t exactly into asking questions about it, either.

Witnesses on scene say Mama June took the first low-ball offer the pawn store workers gave, accepting $1,500 for the ring after a cursory examination of it by the store’s staff. She must’ve had somewhere to be with all that cash all of a sudden on hand, because according to the media outlet, the embattled reality TV star “accepted, took her cash and bolted in a pickup truck.” Well then!

What ring was it?!

So, there are a couple options here as to what the pawned ring could’ve been. For one, it may be a ring her BF gave her back in March 2019 on her most recent TV series, Mama June: From Not to Hot. Old clips from that show seem to suggest a similar diamond ring as the one that was reportedly pawned in the Stockbridge shop this week.

Hmmm…

Mama June got arrested!

Another option for the pawned ring could be the one from her ex-husband, Sugar Bear. He gave Mama June a diamond ring when he popped the question waaaaaay back in July 2013 on the fam’s OG series Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. As you’ll recall if you’ve seen that show, Sugar Bear loudly bragged about how he bought the ring for less than $400 with cash he got from selling a turkey fryer — so, if that’s true, then maybe Mama June made off with a nice little profit with the ring this time around, ya know?!

Regardless, it’s impossible to know for sure if the ring was one of those two, or another one entirely. All we do know without question is Mama June’s bizarre Georgia road trip odyssey still hasn’t come to an end, and we honestly don’t even know how to feel about it.

Here’s to Honey Boo Boo and the fam who stayed behind — and, yes, here’s to Mama June one day figuring out her s**t and hopefully coming home for good. It’s getting weird out there, y’all.

Meghan Markle’s Estranged Dad Slams #Megxit: ‘Both Of Them Are Turning Into Lost Souls’

Meghan Markle‘s estranged father has a LOT to say about his daughter’s planned step back from the royal family alongside husband Prince Harry.

The 75-year-old man made his most recent controversial comments here as part of a documentary filmed for the UK’s Channel 5, during which he spoke out about the couple’s big move away from the royal fam. Early on Sunday, the outlet released a teaser excerpt showing some of Thomas’ comments, too, and let’s just say he didn’t exactly hold back… yeah…

Related: The Royal Fam Will Review The Couple’s Exit In Exactly One Year…

Speaking about his 38-year-old daughter’s abrupt decision to walk away from the royal family, the embattled old man sounds bitter and disappointed as can be. At one point during the excerpt from the documentary teased early online, he says (below):

“It’s disappointing because she actually got every girl’s dream. Every young girl wanted to become a princess and she got that and now she’s tossing that away, for, it looks like she’s tossing that away for money … I think both of them are turning into lost souls at this point. I don’t know what they’re looking for.”

Yikes!!!!

The septuagenarian is on the war path with this one, isn’t he?!

Thomas was far from done there, though, and he only further doubled down on his views beyond that, slamming both Meghan and Harry for their role in “cheapening” and “destroying” the royal family’s good name.

The elder, estranged Markle added (below):

“It’s kind of embarrassing to me. When they got married, they took on an obligation and the obligation is to be part of the royals and to represent the royals and it would be foolish for them not to. This is like one of the greatest, long-living institutions ever. They are destroying it. They are cheapening it. They’re making it shabby. They are turning it into a Walmart with a crown of it now. It is something that is ridiculous. They shouldn’t be doing this.”

Holy smokes!!!!

BTW, you can watch his teaser comments in the doc excerpt right HERE.

But anyways… this isn’t the first time an estranged Markle family member has come after Meghan over her decision earlier this month. At least she’s getting some support from close family, but still. What a tough time to have to navigate all this stuff!
