  • Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett Get Even More Mileage Out of His 'Cheating Scandal'

    Suzy Byrne at Yahoo Celebrity 2 hrs ago

    Sometimes the truth is stranger than fiction. Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett are finally speaking out about his "cheating scandal" — a transgender model claimed she had an affair with the former NFL player while Hugh Hefner's ex was eight months pregnant — and the story is pretty strange.

    Saying he "messed up," Baskett told People magazine that he was at the grocery store in April 2014 when he saw a couple smoking pot in the parking lot. So of course, he approached them in hopes that the random strangers would sell him some of the drug. They gave him a phone number to call, he did and was given an address, and then he showed up at the home.

    "I didn't engage in anything," he told the magazine. "It was like a bank robbery. You never know when you'll freeze. I don't know if it was a couple of seconds or 15 seconds, because all I was saying was get out, get out, get out." The magazine noted that he was "so humiliated and "distraught" by the incident, he couldn't tell Kendra about it.

    Just one day after marking their 10th wedding anniversary on June 29, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck announced they were divorcing. Breakup rumors had swirled around the pair for months, but we didn't want to believe the gossip was true. Alas, where there's smoke there's often fire.

    Ben, 42, and Jen, 43, met on the set of Pearl Harbor , but fell in love while co-starring in 2003's Daredevil . They began dating in August 2004 and married in June 2015. Ten years later, they are now parents to Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3.

  • How Director Kevin Smith Dropped 85 Pounds

    Raechal Leone Shewfelt at Yahoo Celebrity 20 hrs ago

    Kevin Smith would never be asked to buy two seats on an airplane now.

    The director and podcaster, 44, has lost 85 pounds after being inspired by the 2014 documentary Fed Up, which ties the country's sugar addiction to the obesity epidemic. "Left: me & my kid in 2008. Right: 2 weeks ago, 85 pounds later. I shan't wear pants and will never abort the shorts," Smith captioned a before-and-after snapshot of his transformation.

    Smith initially lost 65 pounds after he was booted from a Southwest Airlines flight back in 2010 for his size. The crew told him that for the safety of all passengers, he needed to buy more than one seat. However, he appeared to have put some weight back on by 2013. He started losing again after changing his lifestyle last year.

  • Geez, Who Isn't Selena Gomez 'Dating' This Summer?

    Suzy Byrne at Yahoo Celebrity 1 day ago

    According to the Internetz, Selena Gomez is having a summer of love.

    The "Good for You" singer whipped her fans into a frenzy on Monday when she posted a photo of herself on an ice cream date with a group of pals that included Cody Simpson.

    "These days are always the best days," the 22-year-old captioned the photo, which prompted comments from fans like, "CODY AND SELENA IN THE SAME PHOTO, I'M OFFICIALLY DEAD."

    Simpson is single (right, Gigi Hadid?) and has ties to Justin Bieber (they toured together), making for a perfect — in the dramatic sense — celebrity summer romance. Or maybe it was just ice cream, ya know?

    It seems that whoever Gomez is seen with, tweets or, @ tags is her new love interest. Let's look at some of the other fellas she's been linked to recently:

    The Biebs: They can't seem to quit each other — or stop singing about each other.

  • The Rock Opens Up About Longtime Girlfriend Lauren Hashian: 'You Gotta Get the Better Half in There'

    Robert Kessler at Yahoo Celebrity 1 day ago

    Increasingly, celebrities are drawing a hard line between their public and personal lives. But then again, the status quo has never worked for Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, whose personality is only matched in size by his deltoids.

    In a new Esquire Q&A, the American treasure makes the rare move of opening up about his longtime girlfriend, Lauren Hashian, and straight up demands that writer Scott Raab include it in his piece.

    "I've lived with my longtime girlfriend, Lauren Hashian, going on, like, eight, nine years now. She's a singer-songwriter," Johnson tells the magazine. "We spend a lot of time with my daughter in Florida, Simone, who's 13. We do these stories and we talk so much about the business end, the success end, but then Lauren isn't mentioned and my daughter isn't mentioned. I always like making sure we find the balance and my home life is in there and Lauren Hashian is in there and my daughter is in there."

    Asked whether he prefers movies over wrestling, the former WWE champion's answer may surprise you.

  • Apparently, Carrie Underwood Is 'Someone Famous'

    Breanne L. Heldman at Yahoo Celebrity 1 day ago

    THIS is "someone famous." You may have heard of her.

    Last we checked, she'd sold nearly 15 million albums and had seven Grammy Awards, 17 Billboard Music Awards, and 11 Academy of Country Music Awards to her name. Oh yeah, and she won Season 4 of American Idol .

    Also, she's this guy's wife.

    Carrie Underwood had a field day when a local TV station in Nashville reported that her husband, Nashville Predators hockey player Mike Fisher, signed a new two-year, $8.8 million contract and described in him as "married to someone famous." (Whether or not they were joking, we're guessing WSMV didn't refer to Carrie as "married to someone who's good with a puck" in November when she hosted the CMA Awards... IN NASHVILLE.)

    "First name: Someone. Last name: Famous," Carrie wrote on Instagram, reposting Mike's screenshot entry. "Had a good laugh at this!" he noted.

  • Harper Beckham Proves Her Minions Fandom With Dad's New Tattoo

    Robert Kessler at Yahoo Celebrity 1 day ago

    If the body is a temple, David Beckham's is now a place of worship for a specific type of toddler who's enthusiastic about the little yellow animated menaces known as Minions.

    On Instagram Tuesday, Victoria Beckham showed off her husband's newest ink, chosen by their daughter, Harper, who turns 4 on July 10.

    "Harper has just added to Daddie's tattoo collection," Victoria wrote.

    The tattoo, which is clearly temporary, appears to be on David's right hip bone, as evidenced by the foot in the upper lefthand corner of the photo, a piece of a tattoo Beckham has of Jesus on his side. The Minion characters initially appeared in Despicable Me , they have their own spinoff film,  Minions , opening in theaters next Friday.

  • Petty Girls? Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea Feud Over Flop

    Suzy Byrne at Yahoo Celebrity 1 day ago

    Sometimes famous, talented women get pitted against each other in the media for no reason. Other times, famous, talented women pit themselves against each another.

    We were excited to see Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea pair up for the auto-tune heavy track "Pretty Girls" earlier this month. We thought: Look, Brit has a new girlfriend in the biz. (It had been a long time.) Ditto for Iggy, who is often beefing with people. But there was apparently no love lost between the pair when their song didn't make a splash.

    Brit threw shade at Iggy on Monday night after the Australian rapper commented on Twitter about their song failing to be a chart topper.

    On Sunday, Iggy candidly responded to a fan's tweet about "Pretty Girls" not being a big hit, topping out at No. 29 on the Billboard Hot 100. Maybe too candidly.
