'A Christmas Story' Star Melinda Dillon Dead at Age 83

Forever remembered. After losing beloved stars including Barbara Walters, Kirstie Alley and Stephen “tWitch” Boss in the final days of 2022, the entertainment industry continued to deal with loss in 2023.

Lola “Gangsta Boo” Mitchell — a former member of hit-heavy hip-hop group Three 6 Mafia — was found dead in her home on New Year’s Day, the Associated Press reported. The “Where Dem Dollas At” rapper was 43.

“The Mitchell family would like to thank everyone for their condolences regarding the untimely death of Lola ‘Gangsta Boo’ Mitchell,” the “Mafia” artist’s family said in a statement. “The family is asking for your continued prayers and privacy as we process the loss of our loved one.”

That same day, Earth, Wind & Fire drummer Fred White’s brother announced the musician’s death.

“Dearest Family Friends and Fans….. Our family is saddened today With the loss of an amazing and talented family member, Our beloved brother Frederick Eugene ‘Freddie’ White. 🙏🏾🙏🏾💔💔🥁🥁,” Verdine White captioned a series of throwback photos via Instagram of the “September” artist drumming for and posing with the band. He called his sibling a “child protégé” and noted he was a “member of the EWF ORIGINAL 9, with gold records at the young age of 16 years old!” White was 67.

Alan Rankine — a founding member of the Scottish band The Associates — “died peacefully at home shortly after spending Christmas with his family,” his two sons announced via Facebook on January 2, noting that they would keep his social media accounts active because “the community meant a lot to our dad.” The ‘80s pop star was 64.

January 2 also marked the passing of rally driver and YouTuber Ken Block, who was killed in a snowmobile accident.

“Ken was a visionary, a pioneer and an icon. And most importantly, a father and husband,” his Hoonigan Racing team said in a statement at the time, per CNN. “He will be incredibly missed. Please respect the family’s privacy at this time while they grieve.”

The sports professional died after riding the vehicle down a slope in Utah. The snowmobile toppled over him and he was pronounced dead at the scene after succumbing to injuries sustained from the accident, CNN reported. “Mr. Block was riding with a group but was alone when the accident occurred,” the Wasatch County Sheriff’s Office’s said in a statement. Block was 55.

Read on to remember all the stars who have died in 2023:

Will Ashton Kutcher Return to ‘That ‘90s Show’ for Season 2? He Says …

He’s back, Wisconsin! Ashton Kutcher reprised his role as Michael Kelso on the That ’70s Show spinoff — but is he coming back for a season 2?

All the ‘That ‘70s Show’ Characters in ‘That ‘90s Show’ Read article

“I don’t know. Nobody’s even asked me,” Kutcher, 44, told E! News in an interview published on Friday, February 3. “I have no idea. I’m not in the weeds on that one.”

Kutcher initially starred on the FOX sitcom from 1998 to 2006 before heading to Point Place for a cameo on That ‘90s Show alongside real-life — and now on-screen — wife Mila Kunis, who also returned to her role as Jackie Burkhart. The Netflix spinoff follows Eric Forman (Topher Grace) and Donna Pinciotti’s (Laura Prepon) daughter Leia Forman (Callie Haverda) as she spends the summer at grandparents Kitty (Debra Jo Rupp) and Red’s (Kurtwood Smith) house. 

“It was so cool,” the Butterfly Effect star said of returning to his old stomping grounds. “Kurtwood and Debra Jo are so amazing. I was doing The Ranch on Netflix and both of them came and were on the show. I love them dearly. I love the whole cast of the show, everybody that we worked with. I grew up with that team. Being able to go back in there and re-experience it was super nostalgic and really fun.”

While Kelso and Jackie only made a brief appearance in the show’s pilot, fans were left hoping — now that season 2 has officially been greenlit — to see the twosome again, especially since their son, Jay Kelso (Mace Coronel), is a series regular. 

When asked how long he thinks the next generation should stick around, Kutcher revealed that he hopes they have an even longer run with the franchise than he did. “I hope those kids have 10 seasons of that show,” he gushed. 

Ashton Kutcher’s Ups and Downs Through the Years Read article

While plans for its sophomore season have yet to be revealed, season 1 of That 90’s Show featured almost every original cast member from its predecessor, with the exception of Danny Masterson, who is currently gearing up for his second trial for sexual assault charges. 

Last week, the Just Married star — who starred alongside Masterson, 46, on both ‘70s and Netflix’s The Ranch — opened up about the New York native’s controversy for the first time. 

“Ultimately, I can’t know. I’m not the judge. I’m not the jury. I’m not the DA. I’m not the victim. And I’m not the accused,” he told Esquire on January 31. “And so, in that case, I don’t have a space to comment. I just don’t know.”

Kutcher added that he hopes Masterson will “be found innocent of the charges brought against him, but “wholesale feel[s] for anybody who feels like they’ve been violated in any way.”

Kutcher, who is an advocate for victims of abuse — cofounding Thorn: Digital Defenders of Children, which aims to defend children from online sexual abuse, in 2012 — noted that he finds it hard to watch the legal battle play out. 

“Someday, his kid is going to read about this,” he explained to the outlet, in reference to Masterson’s daughter, Fianna, 8, whose he shares with wife Bijou Phillips.

Bensler! SVU’s Olivia Benson and Elliot Stabler’s Relationship Timeline 

#Bensler forever. There are many great TV partnerships, but nothing quite like the relationship between Law & Order’s Olivia Benson and Elliot Stabler.

The twosome, portrayed by Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni, were partners for over a decade on Law & Order: Special Victim’s Unit until Meloni’s departure from the series in season 13. While the pair had their ups and downs over the course of their tenure together, their dynamic flourished due to their opposing personalities. Benson’s empathy juxtaposed with Stabler’s blunt nature created two complex characters who worked well together — and caused fans to fall in love with their relationship.

While Meloni exited SVU in May 2011 before anything could romantically happen between the two characters, his return in Stabler’s spinoff, Law & Order: Organized Crime in April 2021, offered viewers a glimmer of hope that the duo would take their relationship to the next level.

“I think there’s a world [where they could get together],” the Man of Steel star told Today in January 2023 of Benson and Stabler. “I used to not, but I think we’re all trying to still figure out what the exact steps are and what that endgame is.”

Hargitay, meanwhile, confirmed in January 2022 that fans are not the only ones who feel the chemistry between the detectives.

“Olivia Benson is hurt! I mean, he left me in a lurch for 10 years. She’s frightened,” she explained on The Drew Barrymore Show at the time. “The energy’s there. Olivia’s been in love with him for many a year and I think that we are slowly finding our way back to it, but I want to give him the amount of time he needs to grieve [late ex-wife] Kathy Stabler.”

However, the Leaving Las Vegas star played coy later that year when asked about the longtime partners turning romantic when asked on the 2022 Emmys red carpet.

“You want the tea, baby? Sweetheart, get in line,” she joked to E! News at the time.

Despite not giving up any spoilers about the pair’s romantic future, both Meloni and Hargitay have gushed about working with each other over the years — and how they knew there was a special connection from the very beginning.

“I just knew that Mariska was going to be The One,” Meloni confessed in 2009’s The Law & Order: SVU Unofficial Companion book. “I was in the middle of telling her this story, this joke. So we got up on the stage and I’m like, ‘Hold on just a second, I’m going to finish telling this story.’ Not being disrespectful, but this is important too. This may change my life, but the story is that funny. And I think that put us at ease, and unconsciously there was a connection you could see: That she was now my partner.”

Hargitay echoed Meloni’s sentiments during an interview with TV Line in 2018. “From the second we met, bells went off. We knew we were going to be a huge force in each other’s lives. He was intense and mercurial but also fun,” she shared.

Madelyn Cline: How Chase Stokes and I Handled Filming 'OBX' After Split

Val and Vlad, ’til death do they part! While Chase Stokes and ex Madelyn Cline may have broken up off-screen, they’re still dedicated to working together on their hit show Outer Banks

Chase Stokes and Madelyn Cline’s Cutest Moments Read article

“Mads and I have been working together now for 30 episodes, and we made a promise to each other before we even started dating that the work was always going to come first,” Stokes, 30, told Entertainment Weekly in an interview published on Friday, February 3. “No matter what happens in our personal lives, and the ways that life sometimes takes you in different directions, that we’re always going to honor the work.”

Stokes and Cline, 25, who have starred as John B and Sarah Cameron, respectively, on the Netflix series since its premiere in April 2020, began dating just a few months after the show launched on the streaming service. While they ultimately called it quits in November 2021 — just a few months before they began filming season 3 — the twosome have worked hard at remaining professional on set. 

“We had a working relationship before we had a personal relationship, and our job from day one has always been to leave the show better than we found it,” Cline told the outlet on Friday, echoing her ex’s sentiment. “I’m really, really happy and I’m very proud of the work this season, and I’m incredibly grateful for my costars and their professionalism and just how talented each and every one of them are.”

The Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery star added that she and the Stranger Things actor have “always shown up for each other when it comes to work and this show” despite what was happening in their personal lives. 

Outer Banks’ Chase Stokes Say He and Ex Madelyn Cline Have ‘Always Shown Up’ for Each Other After Split -402Jackson Lee Davis/Netflix

Season 3 of Outer Banks, which premieres later this month, will meet back up with the Pogues as they figure out how to move on after being forced to flee North Carolina — a situation that won’t be easy for any of the characters to navigate. 

“Love isn’t supposed to be easy,” Stokes shared, adding that John B and Sarah’s romance will be “tested” once again. “It’s not supposed to be something that comes naturally. Part of me wants to continue down the road of peace for John B and Sarah, but if there’s anything we know about this show, it’s that it’s going to take you for a wild ride.”

While the duo work at maintaining their professional relationship off-screen, Stokes has seemingly moved on with a new love. The Maryland native and country crooner Kelsea Ballerini were spotted at the College Football National Championship Game in Los Angeles with a group of mutual friends in January 2022.

Later that month, Stokes posted a “lil recap” via Instagram that included a pic of himself and the “Heartfirst” singer, 29, from the game. In the snap, taken from behind, Ballerini and the Tell Me Your Secrets alum could be seen cozying up together in the stands. 

The pair have since exchanged several flirty social media messages back and forth and were spotted at Robert’s Western World bar in Nashville earlier this week. 

While the twosome have been coy about their relationship status, they’ve continued to fuel rumors of a romance — even packing on the PDA while flying out of LAX on January 28, per photos obtained by TMZ at the time. 

When asked about Ballerini in January, Stokes told TMZ, “She’s a sweet girl. We’re having a good time and that’s all I’ll say.”

‘Outer Banks’ Season 3: Everything to Know Read article

Cline, meanwhile, has been linked to Zack Bia following her split from the Beach House star. However, the DJ, 25, swiftly shut down dating rumors in January 2022. 

“We are not dating. We hang out all the time,” Bia said on the “BFFs with Dave Portnoy and Josh Richards” podcast. “I think as someone like herself who is extremely busy and is going to start traveling — she’s on set five months out of the year — she has such a busy schedule and I think I have such a busy schedule. It is one of those things where we really enjoy hanging out and enjoy going to dinner. … We’re not thinking about what it is.”

Try This Eyebrow Gel for Instant Fluffiness — And Fullness Over Time

Us Weekly has affiliate partnerships so we may receive compensation for some links to products and services.

Our eyebrows have seen many trends come and go over the years. We over-plucked them until they were super skinny, and years later we drew them in so they were thick with a concise shape. Lately, we’re in love with the more natural, feathery trend that’s taken over the beauty world.

A natural, fluffy brow look isn’t always as easy as it sounds though — especially if your eyebrows never fully grew back after the skinny brow trend of the ‘90s and early 2000s. You’ll need just the right product to fill things in and keep everything in place. What if it could even make your brows fuller in the long run? We have the recommendation for you!

Was $16On Sale: $15You Save 6% See it!

The Babe Brow Original Volumizing Brow Filler is so good, you’ll prefer the way your brows look with it over the way they look with a beauty filter. It’s a fiber-filled eyebrow gel with a spoolie brush applicator, and what makes it special is that it’s both makeup and brow care in one. Along with styling your brows for instant, long-lasting fluffiness, it’s made with peptides, panthenol and biotin so that with continued use, brows may become fuller and healthier over time!

If you’ve tried brow gels in the past that felt more like glue (and flaked like it too), then you’ll be refreshed by this Babe Brow pick. It’s formulated to gently hold brows in place without the stiff crunch. But it’s still smudge-resistant! You can grab it in numerous shades to match your natural color, or you can try the clear version. Clear is a nice choice if you either don’t need to fill in as much sparseness or if you prefer to use a brow pencil first!

To use this brow gel, which is both cruelty-free and vegan, you can simply use short strokes to brush your brows upward and outward. Want extra fullness? Try brushing against the direction of growth first, then take another coat and smooth the hairs back into place for your desired look.

What we love about a good brow gel like this is that while it helps complete a full face of makeup, it’s also the perfect tool for cleaning up your look even when you’re just wearing a little lip balm and concealer — or even no makeup at all. Our eyebrows can make a huge difference in our overall look, which is why we never want to be without this gel again!

Hallmark Channel Announces 5 New 2023 March Movies: Full Lineup

Bring on the movies! Hallmark Media unveiled its 2023 March lineup ahead of its annual “Spring Into Love” event at the end of the month.

The company announced on Tuesday, January 31, that five new movies will premiere on Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries in March. The final film, Picture of Her, will mark the beginning of “Spring Into Love,” which will bring even more fresh programming to the network.

“In the best of company :),” Tyler Hynes, who stars in Picture of Her, wrote via Instagram on January 31, referring to all his fellow Hallmark stars that are headlining the month’s features.

The 36-year-old actor sang his costar Rhiannon Fish’s praises, adding, “All the warmth and appreciation for the lovely and talented 👑 miss 🐟 @rhiannonmfish.” The pair’s movie airs on Hallmark Channel on Saturday, March 25.

Hynes also teased his pals Kimberley Sustad and Paul Campbell’s upcoming movies, calling them both “family.” Sustad, 35, will star alongside Brooks Darnell in Game of Love, which premieres on Saturday, March 11.

Campbell, 43, will be one of the leads in the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries film, The Cases of Mystery Lane, which airs on Sunday, March 19. His costar for the project is Aimee Garcia.

“Couldn’t be more excited for this. HUGE thank you to @hallmarkchannel and @hallmarkmovie for trusting me with this one,” the Wedding Every Weekend actor wrote via Instagram on January 21, teasing the mystery. “We’re cooking up something pretty extraordinary. Can’t wait for you to meet the Cases.”

The actor’s Three Wise Men and a Baby costar Andrew Walker hilariously trolled his friend in the comments, writing, “You wearing your elf costume while undercover?”

Campbell, Walker, 43, and Hynes all costarred in the 2022 holiday film in which they wore matching elf costumes to take a family photo while watching a baby. (Campbell also cowrote the movie with Sustad.)

“World ain’t ready ⚡🤍⚡,” Hynes replied to the Dating the Delaneys actor’s Instagram post.

The Cases of Mystery Lane is the latest mysteries franchise to come from Hallmark, which is known for series including the Aurora Teagarden Mysteries, Crossword Mysteries and Curious Caterer Mysteries, which stars Walker and Nikki DeLoach.

The Cases of Mystery Lane combines romance, humor and intrigue, reminiscent of some of my favorite stories of amateur sleuths, in over their heads,” Hallmark Media’s director of development, Laura Gaines, told Variety on January 31. “Aimee Garcia and Paul Campbell have undeniable on-screen chemistry and we know that viewers will be rooting for our newest crime-solving duo, Birdie and Alden Case.”

Vanessa Hudgens and Austin Butler's Quotes About Each Other Post-Split

A little less conversation? Not for Austin Butler and Vanessa Hudgens, who have continued to talk about each other following their 2020 breakup.

Though the Elvis star and the High School Musical actress didn’t waste time moving on — Butler has been dating Kaia Gerber since December 2021, while Us Weekly confirmed Hudgens’ engagement to Cole Tucker in January 2023 — the former pair have paid tribute to their past romance (and each other).

In September 2022 — two years after Us confirmed the pair had split — the Broadway alum called her relationship with Butler “life-changing.”

“The public only sees so much,” Hudgens told Nylon at the time, referring to her romances with Butler and Zac Efron. (Hudgens and Efron dated from 2006 to 2010.) “I’ve also been through two very long life-changing relationships, and no one really knows what happened except for me. When I write my memoir, it’ll be amazing.”

Included in that memoir could also be the story of how Butler was inspired to play the role of Elvis Presley, for which he won a 2023 Golden Globe. While declining to mention Hudgens by name, the Zoey 101 alum told the tale of how a “friend” encouraged him to portray the rock ’n roll icon in a nearly word-for-word retelling of the version Hudgens revealed in 2019.

“The month before I heard that Baz [Luhrmann] was making the movie, I was going to look at Christmas lights with a friend, and there was an Elvis Christmas song on the radio and I was singing along, and my friend looked over at me and goes, ‘You’ve got to play Elvis.’ I said, ‘Oh, that’s such a long shot,’” the Carrie Diaries alum revealed to The Hollywood Reporter‘s Actors Roundtable in January 2023. “A couple of weeks later, I was playing the piano. I never really sang for any of my friends or anything. That same friend was there and I was playing the piano. She said, ‘I’m serious. You gotta figure out how you can get the rights to a script.’ Then my agent called and said, ‘So, Baz Luhrmann is making an Elvis film.’”

Four years prior, while gushing about her then-boyfriend on Live With Kelly and Ryan, the Rent: Live star told the cohosts how she and Butler “were driving along and we were listening to Christmas music, and then an Elvis Presley Christmas song came on.”

Hudgens recalled: “He had just dyed his hair dark — he’s a natural blonde — and I was looking at him and he was singing along and I was like, ‘Babe, you need to play Elvis.’”

Butler, for his part, gave credit where credit was due in a later interview with the Los Angeles Times, referring to the “friend” he first mentioned as his “partner at the time.” He added: “We’d been together for so long and she had this sort of clairvoyant moment and so I really — I owe her a lot for believing in me.”

Everything Kelsea Ballerini and Morgan Evans Have Said About Their Divorce

While fans of Kelsea Ballerini and Morgan Evans may have been caught off guard by their split, the country singers had seen the writing on the wall.

“I think when there’s a big life decision like that, it’s not a sudden one,” the Tennessee native told CBS Mornings in October 2022 of what led to her divorce. “And there’s a lot that happens before that becomes public. So, I’m on my, like, active healing journey.”

Ballerini added: “It’s not, like, volatile [between us], it just didn’t work and that sometimes is, like, a difficult narrative to get your head around when you’re like, ‘Oh, my gosh. This is a good person. And I’m a good person. And this is just no longer good anymore.’”

The Grammy Award nominee and the Australia native — who wed in December 2017 — announced their decision to separate in August 2022.

“Friends, I’ve always tried my best to share my life with you in a real and vulnerable way, while also protecting layers of my personal life as they unfold,” Ballerini wrote via her Instagram Story at the time. “This is now public record so I wanted you to hear from me directly that I am going through a divorce. … This deeply difficult decision is the result of a journey of love, growth, and effort that ultimately has come to an end.”

The “Peter Pan” songstress officially filed for divorce hours before posting her social media statement, but a source exclusively told Us Weekly that the twosome’s connection had been on the rocks for years.

“They’ve been working on their marriage for many years and have even tried therapy,” the insider revealed at the time, noting that the pair had even “privately separated” briefly before calling it quits for good. “They ultimately decided that they had no choice but to officially separate.”

Us confirmed in November 2022 that Ballerini and Evans had reached a divorce settlement, shortly after the now-exes each released breakup songs about their experience.

“It’s been a rough few months in my life,” the “Day Drunk” crooner told Access Hollywood at the 2022 CMAs of the inspiration for his “Over for You” single. “Writing this song just really helped me sort through a lot of that.”

He noted: “One of the hardest parts [of going through a divorce] is how lonely it feels. It’s strangely comforting to realize that so many other people have been through it, which I didn’t.”

The Bachelorette's Rachel Recchia Speaks Out After Clayton Echard Reunion

Not what it looked like? Season 19 Bachelorette Rachel Recchia spoke out after she was spotted hanging out with ex-boyfriend Clayton Echard in a viral TikTok video.

Former ‘Bachelor’ and ‘Bachelorette’ Leads: Where Are They Now? Read article

“U guys have me dedd [sic] it’s all in good fun,” the pilot, 26, wrote via her Instagram Story on Friday, February 3. “Healing and forgiveness is a lesson I had trouble learning for a long time. I promise I’m not leaving this era quite yet.”

Her post was companied by a selfie that showed her sitting a car while flashing the peace sign and wearing headphones.

Earlier this week, Rachel shared a TikTok that showed her and the former football player, 29, sitting on a couch. The clip began with season 18 Bachelorette Michelle Young lip-synching over someone saying, “Are you gonna tell me what’s going on?”

The camera then cut to Rachel, who mouthed the words: “I would, but I think explaining it might give us both an aneurysm.” At that point, the camera pulled back to reveal the Chicago native sitting next to Clayton.

In a second clip shared by Michelle, 29, she and Rachel sat at a bar while lip-synching to audio about not wanting to “talk less s–t.” As the duo gesticulated with their wine glasses, Clayton walked through the background.

The videos immediately sparked speculation that the former couple had rekindled their romance after meeting on season 26 of The Bachelor, which premiered in January 2022. Rachel was one of Clayton’s three finalists, but she left the competition after the sales rep revealed that he told her and Gabby Windey that he was in love with both of them.

Clayton proposed to Susie Evans after Gabby, 32, also left, but the wedding photographer, 29, turned him down. During the After the Final Rose special, the Missouri native and Susie revealed that they rekindled their romance after filming, but they called it quits in September 2022.

Rachel, for her part, went on to lead season 19 of The Bachelorette with Gabby. She got engaged to Tino Franco in the season finale, but the pair broke up after filming ended.

After Clayton and Rachel’s cheeky videos, Susie raised eyebrows with a social media post of her own. “Walking on the side of the street with sun not shade >,” she wrote via Instagram on Wednesday, February 1.

Some fans wondered whether the message was a pointed response to another TikTok shared by Giannina Gibelli, who is dating Bachelorette alum Blake Horstmann. The Love Is Blind veteran, 29, and Blake, 33, appeared in a clip with Michelle, Clayton and Rachel with overlaid text reading, “When you get over your reality TV trauma.” In a caption, Giannina added, “But did we?”

Most Memorable TV Spinoffs Over the Years

Just the beginning! From The Vampire Diaries to The Bachelor, many TV shows have found a continuation for their stories in the form of a spinoff show.

For a hit show like Beverly Hills, 90210, the next chapter was a reboot that followed the original characters — but had a special twist. The original show aired for ten seasons from 1990 to 2000 and then continued with a new series, titled BH90210, that allowed the actors to play heightened versions of themselves.

“It’s like a big therapy session with our writers, Chris [Alberghini] and Mike [Chessler],” Tori Spelling exclusively told Us Weekly in August 2019. “We were, like, just telling them stories so they could get our voices and then make fictionalized versions of us, but also we would just tell, like, the craziest stories. It’s really fascinating to hear all of us together try to tell a story because everyone had different perceptions of how it happened, but we have definitely utilized all those little stories throughout the season, the first season. And some things are completely made up.”

While the cast couldn’t have been more excited to return to their old characters, the 2019 series was panned after just one season.

Spinoffs aren’t solely for scripted shows, however. The Hills, which was created as a spinoff of Laguna Beach, was brought back to life years after originally going off the air. The series ran from 2006 to 2010, only to return in 2019 with multiple members of the original cast — including Spencer Pratt, Stephanie Pratt, Heidi Pratt, Audrina Patridge, Whitney Port and Brody Jenner.

Stephanie revealed that the drama factor only increased with the new version of The Hills.

“I’m dying to watch it, and we haven’t seen anything. No one can even comprehend this series,” Stephanie told Us Weekly exclusively in June 2019 about her expectations for the revival, The Hills: New Beginnings. “If they thought the original Hills was, like, drama and the best show ever, this is just — it’s 2020 Hills, 2019/2020. It is just on fire.”

Stephanie added that not seeing one another in a while helped add to the conflict between the cast during filming. “I think everyone’s going to be shocked by how many falling outs, fights and story lines there are,” she told Us.

From reality to supernatural, Legacies proved what a beloved show could accomplish. After The Vampires Diaries found its success during its initial 2009 to 2017 run, it inspired The Originals, which aired from 2013 to 2018.

Danielle Rose Russell then reprised her role from The Originals on Legacies, and she found the transition easier because of the fans that joined her for the journey.

“Actually, it’s been easier than I’d have expected it to be. It wasn’t so drastic. I think because, doing The Originals, I had a very similar situation. I wasn’t just thrown into it. I had only ever done films that never had this huge fan base,” Russell said during a conversation with Collider in November 2018. “I acted just to act. And so, coming into The Originals and Legacies and that fandom for the first time, I didn’t know how to handle it at first, but I have a better grip on it now. I’m excited to do good in the world with it, instead of just letting it eat me alive.”

Morgan Evans Says He Can Only 'Control' Himself as Kelsea Ballerini Moves On
Morgan Evans Breaks Down What He Is 'Grateful' for After Kelsea Ballerini Divorce- 'Only Thing You Can Control Is You' -399AFF-USA/Shutterstock

Focusing on his future. Morgan Evans opened up about the lessons he learned following his divorce from Kelsea Ballerini.

“The only thing you can control is you and how you feel and what you’re doing,” Evans, 37, shared on an episode of The Bobby Bones Show, which aired on Wednesday, February 1. “Thankfully, I have good people around to keep reminding me of that and keep me grounded in that way and I’ll always be grateful for that.”

The songwriter credited his breakup track “Over for You” for helping him heal, adding, “After sharing it, seeing how that level of vulnerability and personal writing is actually the thing that most widely relates to people. And the amount of messages and comments I get on social media now, they’re so great.”

Evans noted that it has helped to perform music inspired by his life. “Having gone through a situation like that — seeing that it helps other people going through situations like that — yeah, it’s really a big deal,” he continued. “It felt good to do that and just be honest and not try to cover things up.”

Ballerini, 29, and Evans announced their split in August 2022. “Friends, I’ve always tried my best to share my life with you in a real and vulnerable way, while also protecting layers of my personal life as they unfold,” the “Hole in the Bottle” singer wrote via her Instagram Story at the time. “This is now public record so I wanted you to hear from me directly that I am going through a divorce.”

She added: “This deeply difficult decision is the result of a journey of love, growth, and effort that ultimately has come to an end. It’s hard to find the words here … but I feel extremely grateful for the years of marriage to Morgan and hopeful for the next seasons. With very active schedules coming up, please be mindful that we are both fragile, actively healing, and showing up the best we can.”

The Australia native, however, hinted that he wasn’t as on board to end their marriage. “I am very sad to confirm that after almost 5 years of marriage, Kelsea and I are parting ways,” he wrote via Instagram. “I wish it were otherwise but sadly it is not.”

Us Weekly confirmed that same month that Ballerini filed for divorce after nearly five years of marriage. Their divorce was finalized three months later.

“I think when there’s a big life decision like that, it’s not a sudden one,” the Tennessee native, who has since been spotted packing on the PDA with Chase Stokes, told CBS Mornings in October 2022. “And there’s a lot that happens before that becomes public. So, I’m on my, like, active healing journey. And a big part of that is showing up for this album and showing up for myself like I never have.”

Ballerini called the decision to pull the plug “rough” because there wasn’t a specific reason. “It’s not chaotic. It’s not, like, volatile, it just didn’t work,” she shared. “And that sometimes is like a difficult narrative to get your head around when you’re like, ‘Oh, my gosh. This is a good person. And I’m a good person. And this is just no longer good anymore.'”

Going Back to Normal? What Austin Butler Has Said About His ‘Elvis’ Voice

Can’t escape the King! Austin Butler went through in-depth training while preparing for his role in the 2022 Elvis Presley biopic — and his voice hasn’t been the same since.

In July 2019, it was announced that the Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood actor would be playing the legendary late musician in the Baz Luhrmann film. When shooting for the project began in early 2020, Luhrmann gushed about his leading man and his take on Elvis Presley.

“I always avoid getting in and heralding the work we’re doing before we do it, but during the testing process, his commitment, his transformative abilities from the young Elvis to beyond, he had been playing so very well,” the Moulin Rouge director said to Deadline in March 2020. “He was terrific. There was such great energy and excitement in the cast and company, about the show we were about to shoot.”

Ahead of filming, Butler studied the “Can’t Help Falling in Love With You” crooner’s mannerisms and his voice. In addition to playing the character, he also sang on the soundtrack. In June 2022, The Shannara Chronicles star opened up about all the training he did to master Elvis’ distinct sound.

“I sang every day [while preparing and filming] and would do my singing exercises first thing in the morning,” he said to Entertainment Weekly in June 2022. “It is really like a muscle. Through filming, I started noticing notes that I couldn’t hit in the beginning, suddenly, now I could hit those notes. I was widening my range. But it’s not just singing — you’re having to find vocal mannerisms. That could be a little tricky.”

After the movie premiered, Butler’s “Elvis voice” became a hot topic of discussion as he didn’t drop the act. When the Switched At Birth alum hosted Saturday Night Live in December 2022, he poked fun at himself and his “new voice.”

“There’s people out there that say ever since I played Elvis, my voice has changed,” Butler quipped in his monologue. “That it got deeper, more Elvis-y, but that’s not true. I’ve always sounded like this!”

That next month, Butler’s voice coach, Irene Bartlett, defended her client and praised all of the hard work he put into his portrayal — which ultimately earned him his first-ever Golden Globe award.

“What you saw in that [2023] Golden Globes speech, that’s him. It’s genuine, it’s not put on,” she shared, referring to Butler’s acceptance speech at the awards show. “I feel sorry people are saying that, you know, it’s still acting [but] he’s actually taken [the voice] on board. I don’t know how long that will last, or if it’s going to be there forever.”

In February 2023, the former Disney star revealed he was attempting to shed his Elvis dialect while appearing on BBC One’s The Graham Norton Show.

“I am getting rid of the accent, but I have probably damaged my vocal cords with all that singing,” he confessed. “One song took 40 takes.”

‘Curious Caterer’ Stars Nikki DeLoach and Andrew Walker Reveal Why They Continue to Team Up for Hallmark: ‘They’re Real Stories’Nikki DeLoach and Andrew Walker. Lindsay Siu/Hallmark Media

Keeping it real! Curious Caterer costars Nikki DeLoach and Andrew Walker are still team Hallmark after some of the network’s stars moved in 2021 and 2022 to Great American Media.

“Let’s start with the family that is Hallmark,” DeLoach, 43, exclusively told Us Weekly on Wednesday, February 1, while promoting her and Walker’s second mystery film together, Curious Caterer: Grilling Season. “I’ve been fortunate enough to work on a lot of different networks … this is the only network I’ve ever worked at in my 30-something years of being in this industry where you truly are family from the top all the way through.”

The Cranberry Christmas actress added: “I don’t know many networks where you can pick up the phone and call the head of the network or reach out to any and all executives.”

Hallmark Media made headlines in January 2020 when its former CEO Bill Abbott left the company following a controversial choice to pull a same-sex commercial from the network. He launched Great American Media — which includes Great American Family — one year later and many of Hallmark’s big stars followed him, including Candace Cameron Bure and Danica McKellar.

DeLoach, however, signed an exclusive, multi-picture overall deal with Hallmark Media in December 2022. Walker, meanwhile, announced his exclusive multi-picture contract with the network in April 2022.

“I think in this industry, you either evolve or you die or you just, like, get left behind. And I think that’s what Hallmark has been doing and they’re leaders in this [industry], especially with these incredible women that are now running this company,” the Three Wise Men and a Baby actor, 43, told Us on Wednesday. “There [are] some really interesting things that they’re taking on. We have same sex marriage [stories]. We have biracial relationships. It’s what our world [looks like].”

Walker noted that “these are real stories” being portrayed by equally as complex actors.

“I think that’s something that Hallmark has really put forward is that they want to tell real stories about real people with that same, like, heart and warmth and familiarity that you get in a Hallmark movie,” the Sabrina the Teenage Witch alum explained. “I think that’s the beauty of working for this network. It’s just in incredible what they’ve done so far. Feel honored.”

DeLoach agreed with her longtime friend — who she has starred alongside in four rom-coms in addition to the Curious Caterer franchise.

“There is this true family unit that exists inside of all of us. We’re such cheerleaders for the other people. We support each other’s movies. We want the best for everybody,” the Awkward alum told Us of the Hallmark Media brand. “We’re all friends. We hang out together. We do life together. We work together. We mourn together. I’ve never experienced that at any other network.”

She continued: “It feels like that old school, like, Hollywood studio system where they had their actors that just rotated in all the different movies that they made. I feel like that’s what Hallmark has created here.”

DeLoach, who has worked as a producer and writer on multiple Hallmark films, added that the fanbase for these feel-good movies is the cherry on top.

“Hallmark fans are unlike any other fans I’ve ever had the gift of interacting with. There’s so much heart. They are truly a reflection of the content that we create on this network,” the Taking the Reins actress said. “They are so loving and so supportive. I am so grateful to be able to be a part of this network. It has been a truly one of the greatest gifts in my life.”

Walker, on the other hand, pointed out how rare Hallmark Media’s success is in the entertainment industry — and how its longevity has helped him branch out into becoming a producer as well.

“It’s obviously something that we all talk about as the core actors on this network, the gift that we’ve been given to be able to work on a network that cares so much so deeply for their fans and the content they’re putting out there,” the 27-Hour Day actor told Us. “Everybody feels supported. There’s no competition amongst us.”

Curious Caterer: Grilling Season premieres on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Sunday, February 5, at 7 p.m. ET.

Paltrows! Levys! Kardashians! See Famous Celebrity Families’ Photos

It’s in their genes! The Kardashians, the Duggars and more famous families have made waves in Hollywood over the years.

Kris Jenner’s blended family starred on Keeping Up With the Kardashians from October 2007 to June 2021. The E! show followed the talent manager’s four children with late husband Robert Kardashian —  Kourtney Kardashian, Kim Kardashian, Khloé Kardashian and Rob Kardashian —  as well as her and Caitlyn Jenner‘s daughters, Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner.

The California native became a grandma in 2009 when Kourtney and Scott Disick’s eldest son, Mason, arrived, followed by Penelope and Reign in 2012 and 2014, respectively. Kris is also the grandmother of Kim’s four kids with Kanye WestNorth, Saint, Chicago and Psalm — as well as Khloé’s daughter, True, with Tristan Thompson, Kylie’s daughter, Stormi, with Travis Scott, and Rob’s daughter, Dream, with Blac Chyna.

The talent manager has wanted to have a big brood since she was “a little girl,” she told CR magazine in October 2019. “I used to sit when I was in high school and think, I can’t wait to have six kids — I specifically said the number six. Now when I see all of us and it’s Christmas Eve and we’re all cozy sitting around the tree sipping hot chocolate, I get so excited for my big, happy family.”

The In the Kitchen With Kris author has “surrendered” to her family members’ needs over the years, telling the outlet at the time: “Walking this path with them, I make sure they know that they’re loved unconditionally.”

As for Jim Bob Duggar and Michelle Duggar, the TLC personalities starred on 19 Kids and Counting with their family from 2008 to 2015. When their eldest children began having kids of their own, the Arkansas natives joined the cast of spinoff Counting On, which ended in September 2020 after 11 seasons.

Michelle turns on “grandma mode” while hanging with her more than 20 grandchildren, despite having preteens of her own. “It’s amazing because you get to enjoy the fun, but not all the responsibility of packing the diaper bag and remembering all the details that you need to do,” she gushed exclusively to Us Weekly in July 2020. “It’s wonderful. It really is. It’s the best thing ever. I love having grandkids.”

Double Take! Celebrity Mother-Daughter Lookalikes: Pics

Like mother, like daughter, indeed! Proving that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Hollywood daughters have long been taking fashion and beauty cues from their super stylish moms – and we don’t blame them.

From Kaia Gerber and Cindy Crawford’s ‘90s supermodel style to Reese Witherspoon and Ava Phillippe’s girl-next-door glam, we are all about mother-daughter #twinning that runs far deeper than a casual family resemblance.

“I don’t ask [my husband Jim Toth] too much. I usually ask my 17-year-old daughter [Ava], ‘Does this look good?’ and she’ll be honest with me,” Witherspoon told Today’s Jenna Bush Hager in October 2016. “She’ll be like, ‘No. You do not look good. You cannot wear that.’ So I depend on her brutal honesty.”

Ava, who is the daughter of Witherspoon and ex-husband Ryan Phillippe, has also turned to her mother for advice about appearances over the years.

“Pretty is as pretty does,” Ava told E! News’ Daily Pop in December 2021 of the Sweet Home Alabama star’s most “special” advice on the topic. “As pretty as you ever look on the outside, you’re only as pretty as you are on the inside and the way you treat other people. If that’s not a beauty tip, I don’t know what is.”

Crawford, for her part, revealed in June 2021 the one thing she’d steal from her daughter — and it’s not something in her closet.

“For me, it was like my hair finally caught up to my face. As a woman, you know you’re going to get wrinkles and your hair is going to turn gray, but no one really talks about the hair itself aging,” the supermodel told WSJ. Magazine at the time, noting that when she looks at her daughter’s hair she is jealous. “I’m like, ‘You have my old hair; give it back.’”

Kaia, who followed in her mother’s footsteps as a model, previously gushed about being compared to Crawford.

“Beyond her beauty and obvious appeal, she has always been my hero and my role model because of the way she treats people and the lens that she sees the world through,” Randy Gerber’s daughter wrote in an essay for Vogue’s November 2019 issue. “And that’s something for which I’m beyond grateful.

Super Bowl LVII: Everything to Know About the 2023 Football Game, Matchup

Grab your pom-poms and popcorn! Super Bowl LVII kicks off on Sunday, February 12, and sports fans near and far are already counting down the days until it starts.

The road to Super Bowl 2023 began with the NFL’s first Super Wild Card Weekend in January. Over the span of three days, 12 teams left it all out on the field to see which six teams would advance to the Divisional Round — and join the No. 1 seeds in the AFC and NFC — to make the final eight count.

The Kansas City Chiefs, who were the No. 1 seed in the AFC, remained triumphant over the Jacksonville Jaguars during their January 21 game. The NFC’s No. 1 seed The Philadelphia Eagles also remained victorious the same day in their matchup against the New York Giants.

Viewers had to watch two more games — between the Chiefs and the Cincinnati Bengals and the Eagles against the San Francisco 49ers — on Sunday, January 29, to learn who would be facing off in Super Bowl LVII.

When it came to the AFC Championship both the Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes and Bengals’ Joe Burrow have played in a Super Bowl — and Mahomes has won one Vince Lombardi trophy. On the NFC side, Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts and 49ers backup quarterback Brock Purdy are new to the Super Bowl conversation.

Ultimately, Mahomes’ squad triumphed over the Bengals and will face the Eagles for Super Bowl LVII.

In addition to watching the big game, FOX announced in January which performers would be entertaining the crowd in Arizona on February 12.

Though rumors swirled that Taylor Swift would be taking the stage at the 2023 Super Bowl Halftime Show, Rihanna was confirmed as the performer in September 2022. The decision left Rihanna fans desperate for a new album and psyched for her performance and potential new music.

The “Umbrella” songstress has been toying with her loyal followers since December 2018 when she teased that her next album was coming in 2019. The record, R9, has yet to drop, but Rihanna’s Super Bowl performance has many thinking the album is near.

“If @Rihanna starts the Superbowl [sic] with fresh songs off #R9, my soul will exit this dimension, I’ll be in a trance I swear,” one fan tweeted in fall 2022. Another superfan wrote via Twitter, “RIHANNA IS DOING THE SUPER BOWL HALFTIME SHOW #R9 COMING SUPER SOON.”

The “Love the Way You Lie” singer, for her part, poked fun at how long it’s been since her last record via a January 13 teaser for her halftime gig.

In the video, Rihanna — who released the Black Panther single in “Lift Me Up” in October 2022 — walks toward the camera in a bright fur coat as voices in the background say, “It’s been two thousand hundred ninety days,” referring to the six-year wait for new songs. Another soundbite adds, “Rihanna, we’ve waited for you,” while a third voice explains, “Rihanna is who everybody is waiting for.”

The Grammy winner cheekily puts her finger to her lips in a “shhhh” gesture to the camera as her 2016 song “Needed Me” plays in the background. “You need me,” she sings on the track.

A closet full of memories! Gwyneth Paltrow gave fans a tour of her “storage facility,” which houses a collection of archival clothing — including outfits she wore while dating Brad Pitt

A Timeline of Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Pitt’s Relationship: Everything They’ve Said Read article

In a video shared via Goop’s YouTube page on Thursday, February 2, the Shakespeare in Love star, 50, who launched the lifestyle brand in 2008, showed off a pair of Chanel and Prada slingback pumps before moving on to a timeless white shirt dress. “This is a ‘90s Calvin Klein dress,” Paltrow said of the garb as she held it up for the camera.  

“I think I wore it to a premiere or something when I was going out with Brad Pitt,” she continued as the clip transitioned to show a photo of the California native in the ensemble while walking hand in hand with the Fight Club actor, now 59. “Very ‘90s,” Paltrow said of the frock. “It’s like slouchy, it’s relaxed. It’s giving that very ‘90s I don’t give a f—k.” 

Paltrow and Pitt began dating in 1994 with the Ocean’s 11 star popping the question in 1996. The former pair, who met while filming Seven, called it quits in 1997.

The two have remained friends with Paltrow gushing over Pitt in an October 2022 interview with Entertainment Tonight. “When we first broke up, we weren’t friends for a while and then we sort of found our way back, probably about 18 or 19 years ago, something like that,” she said. “Then we just kind of stayed in touch over the years … I adore him.” (Pitt has even been featured in a Goop article.) 

Pitt moved on with Jennifer Aniston. The actors got married in 2000 and divorced in 2005. The Babylon star struck up a romance with his Mr. and Mrs. Smith costar Angelina Jolie after meeting on set. Following a two-year engagement, Pitt and Jolie tied the knot in 2014. The Wanted, 47, actress filed for divorce two years later. The exes share children Maddox, 21, Pax, 19, Zahara, 18, Shiloh, 16, and 14-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.  

Paltrow, for her part, married Chris Martin in 2003 and they went their separate ways in 2016, which launched the wellness guru’s famous phrase, “conscious uncoupling.” They share kids Apple, 18, and Moses, 16.

The friendly exes have remained on good terms even after they both moved on from the relationship. Martin, 45, began dating Dakota Johnson in 2017 and Paltrow married Brad Falchuk in 2018.

The Politician star opened up about her unwavering love for her ex and what she still loves about him in an essay for British Vogue in September 2022.

“It’s OK to stay in love with the parts of your ex that you were always in love with,” Paltrow said. “In fact, that’s what makes conscious uncoupling work. Love all of those wonderful parts of them.”
