  • Zelda Williams: 'No Point' Asking Why Robin Williams Took His Own Life

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 13 hrs ago

    Six months after Robin Williams took his own life, his daughter Zelda is opening up about what hers is like now that he's gone. And while she's certainly still recovering from the tragedy, she isn't dwelling on the past or trying to figure out what drove him to it.

    "I don't think there's a point. It's not important to ask," she told Kate Snow on the Today show on Thursday morning. Looking put-together, but understandably somber, Zelda contined on. "There's no point questioning it and no point blaming anyone for it and there's no point blaming yourself or the world or whatever the case may be because it happened and you have to continue to move and you have to continue to live and manage." That task hasn't been easy for the 25-year-old actress, but she remains optimistic that she will find peace and joy again with time.

    She's also keeping Robin's memory alive by continuing his charitable work.

  • 'America's Next Top Model' Contestant Killed in Triple Homicide

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 1 day ago

    Mirjana Puhar, a contestant from America's Next Top Model 's most recent cycle, was killed Tuesday in a triple homicide in Charlotte, North Carolina. She was 19.

    The Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said that the aspiring model was slain alongside Jonathan Cosme Alvarado, 23, and Jusmar Isiah Gonzaga-Garcia, 21, in the home they shared. Emmanuel Jesus Rangel, 19, was charged with three counts of first-degree murder.

    Investigators say that preliminary signs suggest the murders were drug-related and that the suspect knew the three victims. There have been unconfirmed news reports claiming that Avaredo was Puhar's boyfriend and Gonzaga-Garcia's best friend, and that the three had been roommates in the house where they were killed. Puhar reportedly only recently moved in with the two men and had only been dating Avaredo for a few months.

    After being tipped off by a source, officers arrived at the Norris Avenue residence around 5 p.m. Tuesday, where they discovered the grisly scene. Though authorities have not confirmed how the victims died, there were multiple reports of gunshots being fired.

    Details from this tragedy are still unfolding.

  • Clint Eastwood Brings Girlfriend Christina Sandera to the Oscars

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 4 days ago

    The 87th Annual Academy Awards was a big night for Clint Eastwood. Not only was his film, American Sniper, up for six Oscars, but, more importantly for the celebrity-obsessed, he made his first red carpet appearance with his new girlfriend, Christina Sandera. Rumors first sparked last June when the 84-year-old iconic director was photographed at a Los Angeles Whole Foods grocery shopping with Sandera by his side; however, the pair hasn't been snapped together at any official events until Oscar night.

    Sandera reportedly works (or worked, depending on how things are going) as a hostess at Eastwood's Mission Ranch Hotel in Carmel, California. Whether she's still punching the clock or not, she certainly fit in with the stars on Sunday.

  • Dakota Johnson's Fifty Shades of Awkward Oscars Interviews

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 4 days ago

    It can be tough to do something new — especially when that new thing is dealing with all the attention that comes with the Academy Awards. Tonight, Dakota Johnson had to tackle the world's most-watched red carpet, and she seemed as uncomfortable giving the interviews as we felt watching them.

    In hindsight, Dakota having her mom play sidekick while chatting with ABC's Lara Spencer may not have been the best idea. Things started fine with Melanie Griffith praising her little girl, who is having a big moment as the star of Fifty Shades of Grey . "I don't want to say I'm so proud. I've said it so many times, it seems like it's not enough, but I am, so proud," the Hollywood vet began.

    "I don't need to see that to know how good she is," Melanie declared, prompting Dakota to snap.

    "It may be too late," Ryan noted. We'd have to agree with him there.

     

  • Kanye West's 'Breakfast Club' Interview: 6 Gems on Amber Rose, Beck, and More

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 6 days ago

    If there's one thing we know about Kanye West, it's that he drops wisdom like Boston drops snow. The self-proclaimed creative genius recently stopped by Power 105's Breakfast Club morning show Friday to help us all better understand the world — and by the world, we mean whether posing nude for a magazine is acceptable, the power of personal hygiene, a fresh perspective on May-December relationships, and a few other gems.

    1. Amber Rose wouldn't exist without him.

    "She's just soaking in the moment. If Kim had dated me when I wanted, there would be no Amber Rose," he declared, referring to the crush he had on the reality star long before they got together. Good to know, Yeezy.

  • Kendall Jenner vs. Gigi Hadid: Who Won Fashion Week?

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 7 days ago

    New York Fashion Week is like the Super Bowl of… well… fashion. Designers, celebrities, and aficionados flock from all corners of the globe to see and be seen. And since fashion week is the Super Bowl, it's only logical that someone has to win. But how do you possibly pick the shiniest star from a sea full of stiletto-heeled pretty young things? First, you have to narrow the field down to two possible MVPs. We've selected celebrity offspring Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid. Then you keep a record of points and penalties (there are penalties in football, right?) and see who comes out on top. Let the fashion games begin!

    Score: Gigi, 8, Kendall, 14

  • Romance Rumor Round-Up: From Nick Cannon and Nicole Murphy to Niall Horan and Melissa Whitelaw

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 8 days ago

    Valentine's Day is behind us (insert sigh of relief here), but it appears love may still be in the air for a whole slew of new celeb maybe-couples. Here's a breakdown of all the rumored romances currently making waves in Tinseltown.

    Nick Cannon and Nicole Murphy

    Rumors flew after the pair of recently-single stars stepped out for dinner for Valentine's Day in New York City. Mariah Carey's ex-husband and Michael Strahan's ex-fiancée (who was once married to Eddie Murphy) spent the holiday at the iconic Tavern on the Green at the edge of Central Park. According to People, "Clearly they were on a date. They held hands, were very nice to everyone," and shared a hefty meal consisting of oysters, mushroom soup, filet mignon, and pasta carbonara. And while Cannon stuck to soda, Murphy washed her dinner down with wine. Though neither has commented publicly on the status of the relationship, a quiet Valentine's Day outing is hard to read as anything other than romance.

    Niall Horan and Melissa Whitelaw

    Alexa Chung and Alexander Skarsgard

  • Phil Hartman's Daughter Attends 'Saturday Night Live' 40th Anniversary in Her Father's Honor

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 9 days ago

    It's been nearly 17 years since Saturday Night Live player Phil Hartman's tragic death, but last Sunday, the comedy legend's daughter, Birgen, joined an army of A-listers to celebrate the show's milestone anniversary and honor her dad.

    Accompanying the 23-year-old for the special evening was her fiancé, and they certainly made the most of the night out.

    "#SNL40 was unreal.... A huge thank you to everyone who made the night so special for us!" she gushed next to an Instagram shot of herself alongside her future husband.

    Though the engaged beauty has kept a rather low profile compared to her famous father, it does appear that she inherited some of his innate humor. The night before the big event, Birgen shared a gorgeous preview of the dress she planned to wear. "Ready to blind America with my paleness tomorrow night #SNL40," she jokingly captioned the snap.

  • Liv Tyler Welcomes Her Second Child

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 14 days ago

    Liv Tyler has plenty to smile about these days, because on Feb. 11, the 37-year-old actress gave birth to her second child, a baby boy with boyfriend Dave Gardner.

    "He's healthy and everyone is very happy," Tyler's rep confirmed to People.

    A source explained to the magazine that the baby boy was born early by six-and-a-half weeks and will remain hospitalized for the time being.

    The new addition joins 10-year-old Milo William Langdon, whom Tyler shares with her ex-husband, British musician Royston Langdon. (The couple separated in 2008 after five years of marriage.) Gardner, who is David Beckham's best friend, has a son of his own, 7-year-old Gray, from his previous marriage to English actress Davinia Taylor.

    No official word yet on how Milo feels about his new sibling, but something tells us he's going to make one excellent big brother.

  • Danny Masterson: 'Everything in Scientology Is Based on Logic'

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 14 days ago

    Scientology is sort of like the reality TV star of religions: People love to hate it, but they can't seem to stop talking about it. Those who actually consider themselves Scientologists, however, tend to be rather tight-lipped about their belief system and what it means for their daily lives, which is why it's so striking that second-generation Scientologist Danny Masterson has given such a candid (albeit expletive-filled) interview to Paper magazineon the topic. We have to admit, he sounds pretty reasonable, if a bit… ahem… opinionated.

    But the doc was hardly the only discussion topic to be written off by the actor. "You will not find a Scientologist who does not f--king hate psychiatrists," he stated. "Because their solution for mental and spiritual problems is drugs. So let's talk about putting a Band-Aid on something that's just going to get worse and worse and worse."
