Kourtney Kardashian celebrated her 35th birthday on Friday with a surprise trip to Mexico, arranged by longtime love Scott Disick.
James Franco is only interested in positive reviews, thank you very much.
The Oscar-nominated actor is starring on Broadway's "Of Mice and Men," with Franco playing George opposite Chris O'Dowd's Lennie.
The show opened on Wednesday night, and while many of the reviews have been glowing, New York Times theater critic Ben Brantley's feedback wasn't entirely positive.
"Though he sports a Yosemite Sam accent, Mr. Franco is often understated to the point of near invisibility," writes Brantley. "It’s a tight, internal performance begging for a camera’s close-up. And only in the play’s second scene — in a bunkhouse, where Lennie retells George about the dream farm they’ll someday own together — did I sense a warming current of affection between the characters."
However, Brantley went on to compliment Franco's talent and, all in all, it was hardly a scathing review.
Still, the actor was not amused.
In a since-deleted Instagram post, Franco shared a link to Variety's positive article, while also taking the time to rant about Brantley.
There's a baby on board for Chelsea Clinton.
Clinton, 34, daughter of former president Bill Clinton and former secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton, announced she was pregnant on Thursday.
“I just hope that I will be as good a mom to my child and hopefully children as my mom was to me,” the former first daughter said while speaking at an event for the Clinton Foundation’s No Ceilings: The Full Participation Project, which seeks to empower women globally. "I certainly feel all the better whether it's a girl or a boy that she or he will grow up in world filled with so many strong female leaders."
Hillary Clinton, who was in attendance, added that she is "really excited" to welcome her first grandchild. Bill Clinton tweeted his excitement as well.
Excited to add a new line to my Twitter bio...grandfather-to-be! @hillaryclinton and I are so happy for Chelsea and Marc!
According to reports, Clinton's husband, Marc Mezvinsky, watched from the back of the room during the reveal.
Tom Cruise is dating Laura Prepon. Unless he's not.
The actor's love life has always been shrouded in mystery, and the "Orange Is the New Black" star is rumored to be the latest addition to Cruise's little black book.
A new report from the New York Post's Page Six on Thursday claims that the two Scientologists have been secretly seeing each other. "It's the buzz on the set of her show," an insider alleged. "They are being extremely careful to keep it secret."
But is it so secret because it's really non-existent? We're not quite ready to buy into this coupling just yet and we have our reasons.
For example, when has Tom Cruise ever wanted to keep a relationship a secret? The Katie Holmes couch-jumping incident wasn't exactly subtle.
Cruise, 51, and Prepon, 34, were first linked back in November when they were supposedly spotted enjoying a cozy dinner at the Manor Hotel in Los Angeles. Reps for the actors denied a romance at the time.
Now, a rep for the action star is once again denying the dating report.

On Thursday morning, she tweeted: "can't quit crying. i wanna go back on tour. im meant to be onstage performing for ya'll... not laying in a hospital bed."
E! reports Cyrus's allergic reaction could last anywhere from 5-27 days.
The show will not go on for Miley Cyrus… tonight in St. Louis, that is.
The "We Can't Stop" singer is still hospitalized in Kansas, which has forced her to cancel the latest stop on her Bangerz tour.
Yesterday, Cyrus was forced to cancel her show at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Missouri.
"Miley continues to be hospitalized due to a severe allergic reaction to antibiotics," Cyrus's rep said in a statement. As of now, her Nashville show is still scheduled to go on as planned on Friday; however, Cyrus remains on "medical rest" per her doctor's recommendation.
The 21-year-old has kept fans updated about her condition on Twitter.

It's a match made in '90s heaven!
Jenny McCarthy revealed on "The View" on Wednesday morning that she is engaged to her boyfriend of eight months, Donnie Wahlberg.
"It's a yellow sapphire," the host explained while unveiling her hidden hand from behind the desk.
McCarthy cried as she talked about the proposal and how her 11-year-old son, Evan, helped with the surprise.
"This weekend I was sitting with Donnie... and he went into the other room and out came Evan with a card that said 'Will,'" an emotional McCarthy revealed. "And then Evan ran away, then [he] came back with a card that said 'You,' and I knew what was happening and I just started crying. And then [he] came out with a card that said 'Marry,' but it was spelled wrong, 'Mary,' and the last time Donnie came out with Evan and Donnie's shirt said 'Me?' and he was holding the ring."
