  • Robert De Niro's Massive Manhattan Penthouse Hits the Market for $39.8 Million

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 49 mins ago

    We spend a lot of time focused on ways in which stars are just like us: They go grocery shopping, get married, have cellulite. But every now and then, something happens that highlights just how different their worlds are, like when one of their homes goes on sale for tens of millions of dollars — like Robert De Niro's, right now, for example. (Full disclosure: De Niro doesn't own this pricey piece of property, but he rented it for nearly two years.) But if you do happen to have a cool $39.8 million burning a hole in your pocket, this slice of De Niro-approved heaven can be all yours.

    According to reports, De Niro and his wife, Grace Hightower, moved into the downtown residence after lint buildup in a dryer caused a devastating fire that pretty much destroyed their Upper West Side apartment — as well as a few of their neighbors' places (oops!) — back in June 2012. The couple was forced to begin a massive gut renovation on the pad, which seems to be still in progress. No word on how their neighbors are making out.

  • Lorde and Lawrence Is the New Lorde and Taylor

    How was your weekend? Did you hang out with your girlfriends and have a craaaazy time, downing shots into the wee hours of the night? Lorde and Jennifer Lawrence had a pretty great weekend, too — minus the crazy drunken antics — as the two of them hung out together on Sunday. Add that pairing to your list of favorite celebrity pals.

    The two hung out in the NYC neighborhood NoHo (not too far from Lorde's pal Taylor Swift's pad in Tribeca), where perhaps they were dishing to each other about their respective outfits for the Met Gala. (Maybe that explains J.Law's new hair extensions.)

    When a fan asked the songstress on Twitter how J.Law reacted to her presence on set, Lorde wrote:

  • Sofia Vergara Dismisses Embryo Drama With Her Ex

    A keen observer would note that Sofia Vergara's ex-fiancé's New York Times op-ed — where he argued for his right to bring two embryos the couple froze while they were still together to term — was perfectly timed to Vergara's press tour for Hot Pursuit . Coincidence? Maybe. (It's not.) Anyway, she was going to have to address it at some point, which she did Monday with — who else? — Howard Stern.

    "There is a contract and he can't do anything," Vergara said of her legal dispute with ex-fiancé Nick Loeb. "We wrote what we wanted at the time and it's not like a contract that they give you right there at the moment that they're going to take my eggs out. You see it, you review it, and not only that, we did it two times. ... Two times and suddenly you want to change your mind?"

    Meanwhile, Vergara seems to be moving full steam ahead with Joe Manganiello, to whom she's now engaged.

  • The Royal Baby Is Such a Charlotte

    Robert Kessler at Yahoo Celebrity 6 hrs ago

    Several years from now, Britain's newest princess won't have to think too hard when the inevitable question comes up: "Which character from Sex and the City are you?" She's literally a Charlotte.

    The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to announce that they have named their daughter Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.

    Kensington Palace has confirmed that the daughter of William and Kate, born Saturday, is named Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Or if we're being formal, and what two-day-old baby doesn't prefer formalities, her full title is Her Royal Highness Charlotte Elizabeth Diana of Cambridge. And what did you get, three names on your birth certificate, like some pauper?

    Diana is, of course, in honor of the baby's late grandmother, Princess Diana, who was killed in a car crash in Paris in 1997.

  • Melissa Rivers Reflects on Joan Rivers's Final Hours

    "I didn't have to tell her I loved her, she knew. She didn't have to tell me she loved me, I knew," says Melissa Rivers of the morning her mother, Joan Rivers, passed away, after one week in a medically induced coma.

    Eight months to the day later, Melissa opened up on the Today show about her mother's tragic death and the legacy she left behind. In a previously released clip from the interview, Rivers called her mother's death "100 percent preventable." Monday morning, she got more specific.

    Rivers checked into Yorkville Endoscopy in New York City the morning of August 28, 2014; she was there to receive a routine endoscopy. During the procedure, Rivers stopped breathing and would never do so on her own again. Allegations of malpractice and ineptitude have dogged the clinic since Joan Rivers's death.

    That story comes from a report by the Health Department which found that one of the doctors in the operating room did take a photo during the procedure.

  • 5 Most Bizarre Celeb Moments at Mayweather-Pacquiao Fight

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 1 day ago

    Did everyone have a nice nap last night? Since the "fight of the century" was essentially just Floyd Mayweather dancing around for $180 million, we couldn't help but lose focus and become more interested in the star-studded crowd.

    Here are five celeb moments that got our attention:

    1. Justin Bieber is Officially No Longer the Oddest Member of Floyd Mayweather's Entourage 2015 has been the year of mature Bieber (or so we're led to believe) and that translated to the "Confident" crooner's wardrobe choice for last night. The 21-year-old singer nicely combed his freshly cut hair and opted for a slick gray suit to escort The Champ to the ring. While the Biebs blended in with the grown up, A-List crowd, it was the Burger King who stood out. No, really, Floyd chose to be accompanied by the fast-food chain's mascot as he made his way to the ring. Wonder how much BK dished out for that? Money Mayweather indeed.

    He has also been a trending topic on Twitter, but for all the wrong reasons.

  • It's a Girl for the Royal Family!

    Kate Middleton gave birth to a baby girl at 8:34 a.m. local time on May 2. The little lady weighed in at 8 lbs., 3 oz.

    Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a daughter at 8.34am.

    The baby weighs 8lbs 3oz. The Duke of Cambridge was present for the birth.

    The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales & The Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Harry & members of both families have been informed

    Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well.

    This is the second child for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Their son, Prince George, was born in July 2013. Prince William and Kate's little girl is fourth in line to the throne, pushing Prince Harry to fifth.

    Middleton, 33, had to announce her pregnancy sooner than expected — at around 12 weeks — because she was forced to cancel an appearance due to Hyperemesis Gravidarum, or acute morning sickness.

    With Kate's first pregnancy, she was so ill with the same condition that she had to be hospitalized. However, during the second time around she was able to be treated by doctors at her residence in Kensington Palace.

    Prince William, 32, stepped in for his wife at the planned engagement in Oxford.

  • LeAnn Rimes Sets Off Fire Alarm in Airplane Bathroom

    Oops! Singer LeAnn Rimes did not go unnoticed on a Friday flight into L.A.

    Leave it up to me to set off the fire alarm in the airplane bathroom w/ @theDrybar dry shampoo #purecomedy #firsttimeforeverything

    The culprit was an aerosol hair product, which the TSA allows in limited quantities. Mrs. Eddie Cibrian must have known the paparazzi would be waiting for her when she landed at Los Angeles International Airport, so she wanted to look good!

    Sure enough, TMZ cameras were there to greet a well-coiffed Rimes when she landed.

    "It was pretty funny," she told them with a laugh.

    Not really, said all the other passengers.



  • Khloé Kardashian: Fashionable North West 'Already Knows What She Wants'

    Before you know it, North West will be posting her own (fashionable) selfies.

    Aunt and godmother Khloé Kardashian has confirmed that little Nori already has strong opinions about what she wears. While comparing her sister Kim's 23-month-old daughter to Penelope Disick, the 2-and-a-half-year-old offspring of sister Kourtney, the reality star revealed that the little girls are quite different... when it comes to style.

    "[Penelope and North] go to ballet class together all the time, and P's always really girly, while North is normally in an all-black outfit," Khloé told Refinery29 in an interview . "Kim recently put North in an all pink leotard and tutu, and she texted me and was like, 'Look, I put North in pink just for you!' North didn't like it — North wanted a black tutu.

    Clearly, North has adopted the fashion sensibilities of her parents, Kim and Kanye West, who often step out clad in black.

    North had better stay on her fashion game, because some other Hollywood juniors are hot on the heels we assume she'll be wearing soon.

  • Idina Menzel Is Insulted People Thought She Went Blond Because of 'Frozen'

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 3 days ago

    The 43-year-old actress — who voiced Elsa in the hit Disney film — switched up her hair color back in March, and naturally comparisons were drawn between her and her popular character. While the remarks seemed to be rather innocuous , Menzel took offense.

    "They say I did it because I was inspired by my Elsa character, which I found very insulting," Menzel said on Friday on Good Day L.A. "That I would wake up one day and want to be blond, so I could look like an animated character... I just never, ever do anything with my hair and I finished my Broadway show. Eight shows a week, same thing."

    Idina then pointed to a video of Elsa and sarcastically said, "I look just like her! Oh Elsa, thank you so much. We're exactly the same aren't we? Those skinny balletic arms and that tiny waist."
