Drew Barrymore, Reese Witherspoon and Cameron Diaz managed to escape the chaos of Hollywood for a girls’ getaway in Napa Valley on Wednesday where they checked into the Culinary Institute of America for a two-day crash course in pasta making. Witherspoon captioned a pic of her view from the airplane window on Instagram with the caption, “On our way! #girlstrip2014.” The gal pals have been posting a flurry of pics from their vacay. Witherspoon shared a snapshot that showcases the whole gang posing in their chef apparel with the caption, "Love learning with these ladies!” And Diaz shared a pic of the crew surrounding a table in their aprons writing, “What an amazingly delicious, educational, and ridiculously FUN time I had with these awesome ladies!!!” The A-list trio have vacationed together before. In March 2013, they attended a fitness retreat, Bikini Boot Camp at the Amansala Resort in Tulum, Mexico, and were photographed frolicking on the beach. Diaz and Barrymore have been friends for years. In fact, in January 2013, Barrymore dished about when she first met Diaz, saying, “She was actually 16 and I was 14 when we became friends” She added, “We were both LA kids, you know. I worked in a coffee house, she was a model and I served her coffee and we had mutual friends.” Later the two co-starred in “Charlie’s Angels" and reignited their friendship. And Witherspoon opened up to Red magazine about their tight-knit threesome saying, "They’re just as charismatic and fun as you would imagine, It’s nice to hang with Drew because we both just had babies and we can support each other. And Cameron is such a funny, bright gal.” The “Mud” star added, “She’s an incredibly sharp business-minded woman, but she disguises that side of herself. It’s her secret alter ego. It’s important to nurture your friendships and have fun because you can’t be a good mom unless you’re taking care of yourself."

Holy déjà vu! Aaron Carter is trying to win back his ex-girlfriend from way back when, Hilary Duff. On Wednesday, he retweeted a photo of the 26-year-old blond beauty -- who recently announced her separation from Mike Comrie, her husband of three years. The pic was captioned, "hilary duff is flawless." He later followed up with a tweet of his own that read, “Don't be that stupid d--—e that loses the love of your life forever.. Like me…" Hmm… Moments later Aaron continued his heartfelt confession writing, "I'll spend the rest of my life trying to better myself to get back to her. I don't care what ANY of you think." The public admission must have overwhelmed him because he immediately added, "That tweet just gave me an anxiety attack." More than a decade ago, Hilary and Aaron were a match made in teen idol heaven. They flaunted their love on red carpets and he even guest-starred on her hit Disney show, "Lizzie McGuire." But the puppy love ended after Aaron famously left America’s little darling for another teen actress, Lindsay Lohan. In 2005, Aaron opened up on "The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch" about what really went down between the two. "I started dating Hilary [Duff] on my 13th birthday," he confessed. "I was dating her for like a year-and-a-half and then I just got a little bored so I went and I started getting to know Lindsay, dating Lindsay." Aaron’s recent string of tweets isn’t the first time he’s spoken publicly about his remorse. Back in 2012, he spoke candidly about Hilary’s marriage, her pregnancy news, and his regret. "I’m really happy for her that she’s in a successful relationship and that she’s going to have a baby," he told Fox News. "Sometimes I think to myself, maybe that could have been me but it is what it is." Do you think these two should get back together?

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend tied the knot at Italy's Lake Como last September in what was a fairy-tale wedding, but the Sports Illustrated model does have one regret about the special day. "The Insider" caught up with the 28-year-old at the London Fog Collaboration event Tuesday, and she filled us in on the wedding tradition she wishes she hadn't skipped over. "I do have one regret," she revealed. "And that's not having a first dance. I refused to have a first dance 'cause I can't dance. So I don't like dancing in front of people. But everything else was just perfect." And while the day might have been perfect, the nuptials didn't go off without a hitch. Chrissy and John grace the cover of the spring 2014 issue of Martha Stewart Weddings, and the brunette beauty revealed in the mag that storms in Ohio delayed the flights of the groom's family, which in turn, pushed the festivities back a few hours. "They had cocktails for four hours," Chrissy joked about how guests passed the time. The "All of Me" singer's wife also dished to "The Insider" about how the rest of the day went by in the blink of an eye. "When we were still engaged, everyone, all of our married friends, had told us, you know, the most important thing is that you remember every moment of this, and it's gonna fly by. And I thought that the entire wedding. I was like, 'OK, it's going to fly by. Like, be happy every moment. Remember every moment.' And still it's hard," she revealed. "It really does fly by. It's hard to remember."

Today's weather is cloudy with a chance of… Katy Perry? The “Dark Horse” singer, currently in Australia promoting her upcoming Prismatic tour, stopped by the local morning show, "Sunrise," on Tuesday and took a stab at being the meteorologist. While the 29-year-old does her best to report the weather, hilarity ensues as she attempts to pronounce regions of Australia while reading from a teleprompter. She even jokingly mispronounces Hobart, calling it Hogwarts, as in Harry Potter’s alma mater. The brunette beauty isn’t the only star to attempt to be a meteorologist for the day. Steve Carell hosted the weather back in Nov. 2013 while visiting the U.K. to promote “Anchorman 2” and teasingly called the gig, “the hardest job in the world.” And in 2011, Bret Michaels made his debut on The Weather Channel as a guest correspondent reporting on the different climates he encountered while on tour in Middle America.

Get ready for some serious cuteness! Jessica Simpson’s 21-month-old daughter, Maxwell, appears to be following in her mama’s footsteps in more ways than one.
The mommy/daughter duo played dress up on Wednesday and the 33-year-old singer took to Instagram to show off the lookalike shots. In the adorable pics, Jess and Maxwell don some matching oversized shades and strike the same poses.
This isn't the first time we’ve seen the itty-bitty cutie copy her mama’s style. Back in January, Jessica posted a pic of Maxwell sporting a side braid as the fashion mogul leaned in for a kiss. The hairstyle is one that Jess has been known to rock repeatedly in the past.
And the toddler’s gorgeous blond locks aren’t the only thing she inherited from her mom. Last year the mother of two posted a pic to Twitter with the caption, “Maxwell has her momma's pout down pat.” In the image, Jess holds onto her baby girl on the streets of L.A. as the tiny tot shows off her plump pucker.

The 42-year-old actor took to Instagram to share an adorable screenshot of himself FaceTiming with his mother, Constance, showing her too-cute-for-words expression when he, along with his brother Shannon, asked her to be his date to the Oscars.
“My mothers face when @shannonleto and I told her she was coming to the #Oscars with us! :),” Jared captioned the pic. Shannon, who is next to Jared in the shot, will also accompany them to the big show on Sunday.
Constance seemed thrilled by the invite, rocking a huge, open-mouth smile. And while Shannon looked unfazed by the convo, Jared flashed a cheeky and silly expression back at his mama.
