  • Kylie Jenner Just Got a Lot of Decorating Money Thanks to $100 Million Deal

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 1 hr ago

    Already have a lot of feelings about 17-year-old Kylie Jenner throwing down $2.7 million for her first house? Just wait until you hear the kind of money she is going to have to decorate it with.

    Kris Jenner just got her girls, Kim, Khloé, Kourtney, Kendall, and Kylie a new four-year, $100 million deal at the E! network, sources close to the family tell Yahoo. That means you get at least four more seasons of Keeping Up With the Kardashians and their spinoff shows. Get excited! (E! has declined to confirm the financials of the deal and is downplaying the $100 million figure.)

    That nice chunk of change will come in handy for the youngest Jenner, Kylie, who just purchased a new five bedroom party pad in The Oaks, the same gated community in Calabasas, California, where Kourtney and Khloé live.

    So how might she put that cash to use? Kris talked to E! Newsabout how Kylie plans to decorate.

  • Elizabeth Taylor's $8 Million Diamond Drama

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 5 hrs ago

    The estate of Elizabeth Taylor is in a dispute with Christie's auction house over the actress's heart-shaped "Taj Mahal" diamond, which is set inside a ruby border of a pendant given to Taylor by then-husband Richard Burton in 1972 for her 40th birthday.

    In 2011, the New York auction house sold the 17th century piece of jewelry for $8.8 million to an anonymous buyer following Taylor's death. The original owner of the diamond was believed to be Shah Jahan, from the Mughal Empire, who built the Taj in memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal.

    The Los Angeles Times reports the buyer demanded the sale be canceled months later based on his or her belief that the stone was not from the Mughal period.

    Per the lawsuit filed by trustees of Taylor's estate, Christie's canceled the sale even though the auction house never guaranteed the age of the diamond, only describing it as being of Indian origin.

    An attorney representing the estate of Elizabeth Taylor declined to comment.

    The Brown family is asking for prayers.

    On Wednesday, doctors treating Bobbi Kristina Brown attempted to rouse her from a medically induced coma, but, according to CNN and People, she began having seizures when taken off the medications, and she was put back into the coma.

    "Bobby [Brown] is beside himself," a source tells People of the latest development.

    Bobbi Kristina, the 21-year-old daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, had remained in a medically induced coma since she was found unresponsive in a bathtub on Jan. 31. Last week, doctors removed her breathing tube, allowing Brown to be ventilated through a hole in her throat.

  • The Celebrity Social Media Guide to Pregnancy Announcements

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 1 day ago

    If you're pregnant in Hollywood and you don't announce it on Twitter or Instagram, are you even pregnant at all?

    Celebs are all about finding cute and (sometimes) creative ways on social media to let their fans know a little one is on the way. Case in point: Naya Rivera, who made her happy proclamation yesterday. " We’re having a baby! Ryan and I feel so blessed and can’t wait to welcome the newest member of our family," the Glee actress, 28, shared along with the above photo.

    For you future expectant moms in Hollywood, these seem to be the five trendiest ways to share your news.

    1. You can't go wrong with a bun pun : Naya wasn't the first celeb to pun and post. Last year, Stacy Keibler got a little more literal with her pregnancy announcement by sharing a picture of an actual bun in her oven. " Look what we've got cooking! A Bun'dle of love!"

    But don't be discouraged if you don't already have a cute little kid to photograph. Carrie Underwood did just fine with her pups: " In honor of "Labor" Day...Ace & Penny would like to make an announcement. Their parents couldn't be happier!"



  • The Coolest Oscars Celebration You Missed

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 1 day ago

    Table for three Best Actress winners, please.

    While most celebrities were making a mad dash from the Dolby Theater to Vanity Fair 's post-Oscars bash, a few of Hollywood's elite decided to take a breather and (finally) eat.

    Cate Blanchett, along with Meryl Streep and Nicole Kidman, joined Neil Patrick Harris for dinner at The Palm restaurant. So we guess they were fans of his hosting duties, then? A few of the stars' better halves — Keith Urban, Don Gummer, and David Burtka — were also on hand to celebrate.

    So what were they all talking about? No, not how Julianne Moore definitely gets the invite next time. Instead, they were buzzing about NPH's prediction box magic trick.

    That we believe. Don't forget, one of Neil's "predictions" was, "During Patricia Arquette's 'Norma Rae' moment, Meryl Streep will suddenly realize she's underpaid."

    If anyone could get NPH to spill his secrets, it's obviously Meryl, right?

  • Kylie Jenner Dropping $2.7 Million on Party Pad

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 1 day ago

    Kylie is in the process of dropping $2.7 million for a house in The Oaks community in Calabasas, California, Yahoo confirms. That's the same gated neighborhood where sisters Kourtney and Khloé live.

    BTW, the 17-year-old reality star is paying for it herself (what, you were just studying at that age?). Considering her various Kardashian-related ventures, that isn't too surprising; however, Kris Jenner has been handling the logistics, according to E!.

    Kylie's move will apparently happen in August, which is when she turns 18. Guess she and Tyga, 25, will finally be legally free to keep doing whatever it is they may or may not be doing in the privacy of her own home.

    Check out more pics of her new digs below.

  • Elvis Presley's Granddaughter Shares More Wedding Details: Dakota Johnson and Kristen Stewart Had Big Parts

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 2 days ago

    It was certainly a wedding fit for the granddaughter of rock 'n' roll. Riley Keough, the daughter of Lisa Marie Presley and musician Danny Keough , is sharing more details from her intimate wedding, which took place in a wine cave at Calistoga Ranch in Napa, California on Feb. 4.

    The 25-year-old actress wore a long-sleeved vintage French lace Delphine Manivet gown down the candlelit aisle where 80 family members and friends — including John Travolta and Kelly Preston, Kristen Stewart, Cara Delevingne, and Zoe Kravitz — watched her say "I do" to Ben Smith-Petersen.

    “I wanted the dress to be simple and long sleeved and made of lace,” Riley told U.K.'s Hello! magazine. "Delphine made exactly what I wanted. I’m not very flashy, I wanted it to be very simple.”

    Except maybe one thing… Riley's French bulldog Grubs couldn’t be a part of the wedding after blowing his chance the day before.

  • Oscars 2015: 5 Things You Didn't See on TV

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 3 days ago

    One billion people supposedly watch the Oscars on TV. Only about 3,000 lucky souls — yours truly, included — actually get tickets inside. And there's more to the show than the show.

    Here are some of the unguarded moments, backstage conversations, and surprising observations from my sky-high perch in the balcony of the Dolby Theater and the side bar, one of the stars' secret retreats.

    1. Oscar's Cutest Couple

    Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux's grand entrance caused the most commotion in the bar area; even Hollywood power players freaked out. The betrothed duo arrived arm in arm and clenched each other tight as they were swarmed by friends and fans seeking selfies. Theroux kept his hands on Aniston's back, protecting her from the hubbub and navigating her through the masses. They remained adorably attached to each other, whispering, nuzzling, kissing — looking as happy and as solid a couple as ever.

    2. Other Backstage MVPs

    Ansel Elgort patiently posed for photos with a clutch of fans pre-telecast. "I'm feeling good. Really excited about tonight," he told me.

    3. Bar Talk

    Goldblum: Who's gonna win Best Actor?

    Brody: Eddie Redmayne.

    Brody: Yes...


  • Julia Roberts's Mother Dies After Battle With Lung Cancer

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 7 days ago

    Heartbreak has hit the Roberts family again.

    Julia Roberts's mother — and grandmother of American Horror Story star Emma Roberts — Betty Lou Bredemus has passed away from lung cancer. She was 80.

    The sad news comes nearly one year after Julia's half-sister Nancy Motes committed suicide. Bredemus was the mother of four children: Eric Roberts, 58, Lisa Gillan, 49, Julia, 47, and Motes, who died last February at age 37.

    "It's hour by hour some days, but you just keep looking ahead," Roberts later told WSJ magazine following her sibling's death. "You don't want anything bad to happen to anyone, but there are so many tragic, painful, inexplicable things in the world."

    She added, "But [as with] any situation of challenge and despair, we must find a way, as a family… It's so hard to formulate a sentence about it outside the weepy huddle of my family."

  • Jaime King Is Pregnant With Baby No. 2

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 7 days ago

    The Hart of Dixie star — with a little help from her son — announced the happy news on Instagram on Monday: "So excited to announce THE SEQUEL Coming later this year!! ... #BabyTown2 - Created by @kyle_newman and @jaime_king. Also starring #JamesKnight."

    King, 35, and her husband Kyle Newman, 38, welcomed James in October 2013 after a four-year battle to conceive.

    "For all the struggling women & moms out there that think they are alone – This is the truth about conceiving my son and struggles after. 8 yrs of pain and undiagnosed PCOS & Endometriosis," she said in a Facebook post.

    King recently spoke with People about her decision to open up about her very personal struggle. "I was hiding what I was going through for so long, and I hear about so many women going through what I went through. If I’m open about it, hopefully it won’t be so taboo to talk about it," she told the magazine last month.

    This will be the second child for Jaime and Kyle who wed in 2007.
