    After an exhausting awards season, Benedict Cumberbatch has found time to properly unwind with his new bride.

    The Imitation Game star, 38, and Sophie Hunter are on a 10-day honeymoon in Tahiti, according to E! News. The newlyweds are staying at a five-star resort in Bora Bora.

    "Benedict looked so excited to be there and was snapping pictures with his camera," an eyewitness says. "They were given pineapple-infused water and beautiful flower leis that they immediately put around their necks and smelled the fresh flowers."

    The Sherlock star and his pregnant wife, 36, are staying in a water bungalow which they have "rarely" left (naturally).

    The Cumberbatches also reportedly enjoyed massages in their room when it rained.

    Alicia Keys introduced her 2-month-old son, Genesis Ali Dean, to the world on Facebook on Friday. “Blessings and love!! #GenesisAliDean” the Grammy-winning singer captioned the pic. Keys, along with husband Swizz Beatz, their other son, Egypt, and Kasseem Jr. — Swizz's son from a previous relationship — all posed in black tie attire for the family portrait.

    Keys, 34, gave birth to her second child in December. She and Swizz, 36, are parents to Egypt, 4 while Swizz (real name Kasseem Dean) has three other children from earlier relationships. The hip-hop producer shared a sweet photo from the shoot of him with his boys: "Blessings #GenesisAliDean … #Deanboyz."

    Alicia and Swizz seem to have mastered the art of cute social media announcements. They revealed they were expecting their second child on Instagram in July.

    And many many more adorable pics.

  • Kelly Osbourne Quits 'Fashion Police' After Zendaya Controversy

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 2 days ago

    Sorry wasn't good enough for Kelly Osbourne.

    Following this week's Giuliana Rancic-Zendaya fiasco, Osbourne has quit Fashion Police .

    "Kelly Osbourne is departing E!s Fashion Police to pursue other opportunities, and we would like to thank her for her many contributions to the series over the past five years, during which time the show became a hit with viewers," the network says in a statement. "No decisions have been made on her replacement."

    Despite the shakeup, the network says its show will return as scheduled on March 30.

    On Monday's post-Oscars show, Rancic drew flak after critiquing Zendaya Coleman's Academy Awards hairstyle, saying the young actress probably smelled "like patchouli oil... and weed" because of her dreadlocks.

    you guys do realize that @Zendaya is my friend right?

    Apparently he was right.

  • Zendaya 'Over' Giuliana Rancic's Comments About Her hair

    Zendaya Coleman is putting the Giuliana-dreadlocks drama behind her.

    The 18-year-old actress looked carefree and happy while out in Hollywood with her father (who you'll notice has dreads) on Thursday night. This is the first time Zendaya has been spotted since Giuliana Rancic made controversial comments about the singer's Oscars hairstyle on E!'s Fashion Police .

    Coleman told paparazzi last night that she thinks the whole thing is "over" and to "let it go, let's make it positive."

    While Us Weekly claims Rancic could have avoided the whole fiasco if she listened to her co-star Kelly Osbourne and didn't say the joke (which was reportedly taped three times), Access Hollywood says that's not the case.

    Naturally, papa Osbourne caught wind of that.

  • Bill Cosby: 'I'm Far From Finished'

    The embattled 77-year-old entertainer issued a new statement ahead of his comedy show scheduled in Louisiana on Friday, which will go on as planned (many have not).

    “Dear Fans: For 53 years you have given me your love, support, respect and trust. Thank you! I can’t wait to see your smiling faces and warm your hearts with a wonderful gift — LAUGHTER. I’m ready!" the once beloved comedian said. “I thank you, the theatre staff, the event organizers and the Lafayette Community for your continued support and coming to experience family, fun entertainment. Hey, Hey, Hey — I’m far from finished. Sincerely, Bill Cosby.”

    The comedian has denied wrongdoing through his legal team, but has largely remained silent.

    Wonder if he will give the joke another go tomorrow.

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

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 4 days 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 4 days 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 5 days 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 5 days 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?
