    Mallory Schlossberg at Yahoo Celebrity 41 mins ago

    Sometimes it takes a really unfortunate experience — you know, like the painful, slow burn of a public breakup — to make you suddenly feel like you're a whole new woman. Look no further than Paula Patton, who was all smiles while chatting with Meredith Vieira about her recent divorce from Robin Thicke for an episode of The Meredith Vieira Show airing on Tuesday.

    If you couldn't already tell by how the 39-year-old actress is legitimately glowing, she's doing A-OK post-divorce. "You know, I'm doing really well," she told Vieira. "It's been a long year and a lot of challenges, but I've grown quite a bit and [I'm] just getting used to change."

    Regarding her new life, she said that she just "[embraces] it" and that she's "thankful for everything that [she does] have," which probably includes her 4-year-old son, Julian. "I live in a place of gratitude," she added.


  • David Arquette Explains That Justin Bieber Fight

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 1 hr ago

    According to Page Six's initial report, the pop star wanted Arquette thrown out of his Vegas party after he caught wind that David was “talking about Bieber behind his back.”

    The source said: “Justin heard what David had been saying, and threw him out of his suite with the help of a friend, because they didn’t have security up there. Somehow David managed to get back in and rushed at Bieber to take him out. There was a confrontation, then other people got in the way to separate them. David was thrown out again, this time for good.”

    While speaking to Stern on Monday, Arquette insisted, "I didn't get in a fight and thrown out."

    What really went down was the Biebs had just thrown his birthday bash (following the taping of his Comedy Central roast in L.A.) at David's new club in Las Vegas, Heart of Omnia, at Caesars Palace. After the shindig, David got into an elevator thinking he was going to a friend's afterparty and when he got off, was asked to put his cell phone in a pillow case.

    Naturally, Howard responded to that by calling Bieber "a little prick."

  • Robin Williams's Family Will Try to Settle Their Dispute Out of Court

    Robert Kessler at Yahoo Celebrity 3 hrs ago

    The attorneys for Robin Williams's wife and children, Zachary, Zelda, and Cody, have decided to attempt to resolve a dispute over the late actor's will out of court. According to the Associated Press, the attorneys agreed Monday in court to meet informally before April 10 to settle the matter.

    The late actor's three children are from his first and second marriages; he married his third wife, Susan Williams, in 2011.

    The debate stems from Williams's will. According to the attorney for his children, his trust leaves them their father's clothing, jewelry, and personal photos taken before his marriage to Susan. According to Susan's lawyer Jim Wagstaffe, she wants to keep her wedding presents, the tuxedo Williams wore at their wedding, and photographs taken at his 60th birthday party in 2000, 11 years before they wed.

    Williams commited suicide last August after a recent Parkinson's disease diagnosis and lifelong battle with depression.

  • Mick Jagger's Romance With Ballerina Melanie Hamrick Heating Up

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 5 hrs ago

    Somebody, get these two a room — oh wait, they already took care of that themselves. Over the weekend, 71-year-old Mick Jagger was spotted leaving a fancy Manhattan building with 28-year-old Melanie Hamrick by his side. (Technically speaking, they weren't exactly side-by-side, as they seemed to make an effort to keep a bit of distance in between.) Despite their rather modest effort at discretion, however, the picture was pretty clear, especially considering that they were both assisted by the same chauffeur to get into the same black car.

    Probably most notable about Hamrick's appearance, however, wasn't what she wore or carried: It was her expression. Though, like Mick, she dutifully kept her head down as she made her way into the car, she couldn't keep a beaming smile off her face.

    But what else do we know about this dancing beauty besides the fact that she had a broken engagement and seems to have caught a rock legend's eye?

  • Mariah Carey and Brett Ratner Fuel Romance Rumors in the Caribbean

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 5 hrs ago

    Days after the Grammy-winning singer denied she was dating the Rush Hour director, the longtime pals were spotted strolling arm in arm — along with another female friend — in the Caribbean.

    Carey, who turned 45 on Friday, and Ratner, who turned 46 Saturday, threw a joint birthday celebration over the weekend in St. Barts. The lavish soiree took place on a yacht Sunday night.

    The above photo has fueled speculation that Mariah and Brett are more than friends. They have been spotted together more frequently since the "You're Mine" singer split with Nick Cannon last year.

    Earlier this month, Carey posted a shot of her and the filmmaker "hanging out in the girls room" together. A few weeks later, they were seen having dinner along with Courtney Love.

    Brett and Mariah do have a long history… of working together professionally, that is. They have been close friends since 1998 when he directed her "I Still Believe" music video. Ratner went on to direct seven more for the singer. Over the years, romance rumors have popped up, and repeatedly have been shot down.

    Talk about a confusing love boat.

  • Snooki Celebrates Her Daughter's Baptism

    Gone are the days when Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi was known for her weekends of debauchery on New Jersey's beaches. This past weekend, the Jersey Shore alum proved how far she's come since her reality TV days, as she celebrated her daughter Giovanna's baptism. And Giovanna looked super cute!

    Snooki Instagrammed a photo of herself and her pal, Stephanie Greiner, at the celebration on Sunday.

    "Baptized Giovanna today!" Snooki wrote. "Steph's a godmother @stephanie_b22."

    Newly-appointed godmother Greiner posted a photo of herself with her freshly baptized goddaughter, who was all dolled up in blue bows and ruffles for her big day.

    Snooki's BFF and Snooki & JWoww co-star, Jenni "JWoww" Farley, was also in attendance, along with her baby girl, Meilani. Snooki snapped a photo of her pal in full mama mode.

    " She's lovin that mom life @jwoww," wrote Snooki. 

  • Prince George Upstages Prince Charles in Earth Hour Address

    Robert Kessler at Yahoo Celebrity 7 hrs ago

    When it comes down to it, regardless of rank or station, we're all just human beings. And Prince Charles is no different than any other grandpa: he just wants to show off pictures of his grandson.

    It also probably doesn't hurt that everyone everywhere is always interested in any new picture of Prince George, future King of England. So if you're a royal looking to draw some attention to a cause you're supporting — like, say, Earth Hour — a nice strategy is to toss in a brand new picture of the youngest royal in the background. Which is exactly what Prince Charles did in a PSA released on Friday, encouraging people to participate in Earth Hour.

    Keen observers immediately noticed the new picture of Prince George.

    Talk about a direct message to the press: new photo of Charles holding George in WWF video

    Photo: Prince Charles and Prince George ♥

    Enough reading into Prince Charles having a picture of Prince George in the background. It was a photo. Quit stirring the pot already.

  • Easter Comes Early for North West

    Robert Kessler at Yahoo Celebrity 9 hrs ago

    Whether or not it's inappropriate to be envious of a 21-month-old child, North West continued her reign as World's Best Baby Sunday, embarking on a sun-soaked, Instagram-ready Easter egg hunt with her BFF Ryan.

    In accordance with her rules of social media, Kim Kardashian shared just three pictures from the hunt.

    In the first, future space explorer North West guides Ryan around the corn maze in search of eggs and the delicious candy inside.

    Ryan is the daughter of Tracy Nguyen and Ray Romulus, who works as a music producer under the name The Stereotypes. Tracy shared a couple pictures from the hunt as well.

    Here, future James Beard Award-winning chef North demonstrates to her sous chef Ryan the proper ratio of sand to sun in a sandbox torte.

    North and Ryan also got their faces painted at their one-week-early Easter extravaganza.

    It's so refreshing to see a young female celebrity focusing on supportive, female friendships.

  • What We Learned From Karrueche Tran's OWN Interview

    Tanya Edwards at Yahoo Celebrity 1 day ago

    Finally, we're getting to hear Karrueche Tran's side of the story.

    The 26-year-old model, who broke up with Chris Brown, 25, several weeks ago after learning that he had fathered a child with another woman, sat down for an exclusive interview with life coach Iyanla Vanzant, which aired on Saturday night. And it was seriously worth the wait. (#karruechespeaks wasn't trending on Twitter for nothing!)

    During the hour-long chat, the Fix My Life host encouraged Karrueche to speak her truth and many tears were shed. In case you missed it, here are the eight biggest moments you need to know about for talking around the water cooler on Monday.

    1. Karrueche Doesn't Want to Be Known as the Girl From TMZ

    When Iyanla asked why Tran wanted to do an interview now, she explained, "Now that I’ve chosen a career — acting and modeling — which [requires me to be] in the limelight, it’s very important. One time, I went to an audition and I stated my name, and the lady was like, 'Oh, that name sounds really familiar. I've seen you on TMZ.' Her first perception of me was what she had heard."

    2. She Met Breezy on a Shoot While Working as a Stylist

  • Angelina Jolie Turns Kids' Choice Awards Into Girls' Night Out With Daughters Shiloh and Zahara

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 1 day ago

    The mother of six spent her Saturday night at the Kids' Choice Awards at the Forum in Los Angeles with her daughters Zahara, 10, and Shiloh, 8, in tow. Jolie was nominated for Favorite Movie Actress as well as Favorite Villain (for her work in Maleficent ). Though her youngest daughter, Vivienne, acted opposite her mother as the young Aurora in the Disney flick, she didn't get to take part in the festivities. For what it'sworth, though, Shiloh and Zahara didn't seem all that concerned that their little sister wasn't there.

    Dressed casually for the event, Zahara and Shiloh were all smiles during the show. For her part, Angelina also appeared to be having a wonderful time, though she opted for a slinky black dress and sky-high stilettos — not that we'd expect anything less.
