Kaley Cuoco jokes with Karl Cook about divorce rumors after troll-worthy candid pic reveal
And you thought this was a face only a mother could love. Kaley Cuoco's husband Karl Cook had some fun at his wife's expense over the weekend, sharing what just might be the least flattering photo of the star that's ever graced our screens. "In my just over year of marriage I have many times found myself gazing over at my wife in awe of her beauty and grace. This is not one of those times, this time makes me wonder, '@kaleycuoco where's your neck?'" he joked in the caption (via Today). "Omg I love you so much honey!!!" Kaley did not return the love sentiment. Instead, the actress leaned a rumor that surfaced earlier this month after she told E! News she and Karl don't live together. "I read somewhere that we are divorcing and living separate lives," she said in the comments. It's worth mentioning." If her response was meant as a threat, she got over it pretty quickly. One day after Karl's not-so-purdy post, she shared a photo of the couple embracing on her own Instagram feed. That post inspired her ex and former "Big Bang Theory" costar Johnny Galecki to continue stoking the divorce rumors. "This is totally cropped," he wrote in the comments, calling the photo "fake." "Karl was laughing with me on a small island off Turkish Keys. No one will believe this, (Kaley) #solame." The split chatter began after Kaley described her marriage as " very unconventional " to E!, telling the site they're in "different locations a lot." She continued: "You know, we're not together every single day and I think, personally, it's important, it works well for us. If we want to Instagram shame each other, (we) Instagram shame each other. It just makes life really fun." For the record, the separate living situation is neither for the purposes of Instagram shaming. Said Kaley: "We're building our dream house. We're eventually going to be under the same roof forever." Kaley and Karl got engaged in 2017 and wed the following summer.
Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez 'haven't planned' their wedding yet
Nearly six months into their engagement, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez have yet to nail much down as far as their wedding. Speaking to "Extra" over the weekend alongside her "Hustlers" costars, J.Lo explained that 2019 is already too packed to add any serious wedding planning to the mix. "We haven't really planned it yet," she said. "You know, the rest of this year, I have another movie, I have a TV show, I have kids, I have an album, I have a lot of things … Alex has baseball for the rest of the year." She did add that the two "are talking about" the wedding, but it sounds like her work projects — including "World of Dance" and the forthcoming "Bye Bye Birdie Live" — will take priority for now. In the meantime, Jennifer's ex-Yankee fiance remains super involved and supportive of her work. "He loves being at every show that he can be at. I go to all his baseball games," she recently told Variety for the magazine's latest cover story. "There were times in my life when my career was going great, and my personal life was going OK. And there were times my personal life was stable, but my career was not great. This is the first time where I have a really beautiful alignment between the two. I think Alex brought that for me. I love it. We have a beautiful life."

Kim Kardashian West attends Kanye's special Sunday Service in Dayton with North and Saint
Kanye West and his family have spent most Sundays this year at the rapper's musical Sunday Services in Los Angeles. This past weekend, they headed to Dayton, Ohio, instead, where they staged a special memorial version of the weekly gospel-focused event in honor of the victims of the mass shooting there earlier this month. According to the Daily Mail, the event — widely rumored to be Dayton-bound by Friday of last week — took place under a tent at RiverScape Metro Park prior to Dave Chappelle's massive Gem City Shine concert and fundraiser for Dayton residents affected by the tragedy. During the service, which an all-white clad Kim Kardashian West attended with her kids Saint West and North West, Kanye reportedly performed hits like "Jesus Walks" and "Ultralight Beam" with the choir. "We've come to love you," he told the crowd, "and we've come to share the love of Jesus Christ with you all today." Dave, who lives in Yellow Springs, Ohio, outside Dayton, attended the service as well and spoke to the crowd from the stage, assuring them, "We're still here and we're still strong." He added: "And the only way, but not the only way, but the best way that we can honor our fallen is by getting up better than we were before." The concert later that day featured performances from Stevie Wonder, Chance the Rapper, Teyana Taylor, Talib Kweli and more artists. It drew a reported 20,000 out for the cause.
Khloe Kardashian calls ex Lamar Odom 'courageous' for his candor about addiction
A couple years back, Caitlyn Jenner's memoir, "The Secrets of My Life," irked members of her family, including Khloe Kardashian, whose relationship with her former stepfather was strained as a result. Khloe feels differently about her ex-husband, Lamar Odom's memoir, though. In "Darkness to Light," and in interviews promoting it, the NBA alum detailed some his addiction struggles leading up to his near-fatal overdose at a brothel in Las Vegas while he was married to Khloe. "So, if he feels like talking about it — and if this is a form of his healing and therapy — then I actually think it's really courageous to talk about the amount of addiction that he's had. Like, the depths of it," Khloé says in a preview clip for the new season of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" excerpted by Page Six. "It doesn't bother me," she explains. Khloe goes on to tell Kim Kardashian West that her appearance in the book makes sense to her. "I'm fine. It's his truth, like, he's allowed to tell his version," she says. "Him and I each played a significant role in each other's lives, so I think it's natural." Khloe and Lamar married in 2009. The reality star continued to help her ex as he recovered from the OD before their divorce was finalized in 2016.
Taylor Swift reveals the diary entry she wrote in 2009 after Kanye West's MTV VMAs dis
It's been one whole decade since Kanye West forced himself onstage at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards after Taylor Swift's Female Video of the Year win, grabbing her mic to declare Beyonce's "Single Ladies" was one of the best videos ever made. Turns out Taylor was as shocked by the moment as anyone (slash everyone) else who witnessed it. Among the extras Taylor included in the deluxe version of her new album, "Lover," is a glimpse into her world courtesy of personal diary entries. "I've written about pretty much everything that's happened to me. I've written my original lyrics in those diaries, just feelings," she told Instagram followers of the booklets that accompany the music (via People). "It's everything from pictures drawn, photos of that time in my life, I used to like tape stuff in my diaries." One of those pages features her take on Kanye's behavior, written five days after the awards show. "Ahh… the things that can change in a week," she writes. "Let's just say, if you had told me that one of the biggest stars in music was going to jump on stage and announce that he thought I shouldn't have won on live television, I would've said, 'That stuff doesn't really happen in real life.' Well… apparently…. It does." Though they've since resumed their beef, Kanye did apologize to Taylor on his blog, prompting her write the song, "Innocent" as an "open letter" to Kanye, whom she said she'd forgiven in the liner notes to the album, Speak Now."

Angelina Jolie launches YouTube channel about her humanitarian work
Vlogger-to-be? Angelina Jolie recently created her own YouTube channel as an online home for videos about her humanitarian work, according to W. So far, she's posted two clips. The first is a 15-minute video of her keynote address at the United Nations' General Assembly Ministerial Meeting in which she urges leaders to be more proactive in protecting female refugees in war zones. "Women and girls are still the majority of the victims of war," she tells the audience. "They are over half of all refugees, and the vast majority of the victims of rape and other sexual and gender-based violence." The second post came on Sunday, Aug. 25. It's a video of her keynote from The Hollywood Reporter's 2017 Women in Entertainment breakfast that shows the 44-year-old actress and director urging Hollywood's power players to take full advantage of their artistic freedom at a time when so many women in the world don't have that luxury. A bio on the channel's landing page describes Angelina's "years of dedicated service to UNHCR (United Nations High Commission For Refugees) and the cause of refugees" as well as her current work as Special Envoy to High Commissioner Antonio Guterres. "In her expanded role, Jolie focuses on major crises that result in mass population displacements, undertaking advocacy and representing UNHCR and the High Commissioner at the diplomatic level," the bio reads. "She also engages with decision-makers on global displacement issues. Through this work, she has helped contribute to the vital process of finding solutions for people forced to flee their homes."
