Mindy Kaling 'learned a lot' from keeping her second pregnancy secret

Mindy Kaling 'learned a lot'

Mindy Kaling "learned a lot" from keeping her pregnancy a secret during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Late Night star is mother to three-year-old daughter Katherine and six-month-old son Spencer, and didn't reveal she was expecting her second child until after his birth.

But as she appeared at the #WOW2021 event on Thursday (13May21), Mindy told Dr. Robin Berman, UCLA associate professor of psychiatry, that the experience was one she'll never forget.

"It has been wonderful," she said of motherhood, adding: "I don't know if I recommend everyone having a secret pregnancy during a worldwide pandemic, but I will say I learned a lot from it. Definitely like a once in a lifetime type of thing."

She also opened up about what inspires her parenting style, admitting she wants to be a parent who "doesn't scream" at their kids.

"To me, people who do not blow their top and also can stay on a consistent message. That to me - I'm the most impressed by those people," she smiled.

Mindy has never revealed the identity of her children's father, and calls herself a single mother. She has the help of a nanny, however, and her retired father, and added that becoming a mother herself has allowed her to "tap into" her youth.

"I feel my life is so rich," she concluded. "If anything, (parenthood) has given me this flooding of memories of my childhood, I feel like I'm able to write even more. ... That has been one of the most unexpected pleasures of having children, is being able to tap back into my own youth."

Lindsay Lohan's mother urges Chrissy Teigen to 'learn and grow' amid Twitter scandal

Lohan's mom urges Teigen

Lindsay Lohan's mother has urged Chrissy Teigen to "continue to learn and grow" after penning an offensive tweet mocking the Mean Girls star's mental health struggles.

Chrissy has found herself in hot water recently after resurfaced tweets backed Courtney Stodden's claims that she'd been cyber bullying them for years.

While Chrissy issued an apology, many social media users delved into her Twitter history to see if there were any other offensive messages there, with one person finding one from January 2011 about Lindsay.

"Lindsay adds a few more slits to her wrists when she sees emma stone," the tweet reads.

Responding to the tweet, Lindsay's mom Dina said she has no intention of slamming Chrissy, but is keen to see how she grows following the scandal.

"As a single mother of four children I have raised them to be kind, humble and non-judgmental," she told Fox News. "That being said, I will not judge her words towards others but I stand firm in one looking into oneself and continue to learn and grow #ownyou."

Despite Chrissy's apology, Courtney refused to accept her words, insisting it felt more like a bid to fix her damaged reputation.

Tiger King battling cancer

Tiger King's Joe Exotic has cancer.

The former zoo owner - who is currently incarcerated after being found guilty of plotting to have animal rights activist Carole Baskin murdered - has taken to Twitter to share his prostate cancer diagnosis.

He wrote: "John Phillips (Joe's lawyer) has received my medical records from FMC Fort Worth and my PSA count came back very high for prostate cancer.

"The prison has approved testing to verify what stage it is in. My body is tired, I have lost a tremendous amount of weight, the mouth sores are out of control, I throw up more than I eat.

"I don't want anyone's pity, what I need is when John Phillips gets the evidence he is working on, I need the world to help him get President Biden, VP Harris and the Attorney General to listen to the evidence and see that it's not just city cops out of control with corruption, but his very own Department of Justice and make this right and sign that pardon that Trump left behind so I can go home and get proper medical care and proper food.

"Thank you for all the love and support from all over the world. I love you all. Wish me luck"#JusticeForJoeExotic #TigerKing #JoeExotic @JohnPhillips. (sic)"

Joe recently praised John for working "tirelessly" to get him freed from jail, with the lawyer insisting they had made "real progress" in their case.

Joe's health woes come after he and his husband Dillon Passage reconciled their relationship after the latter announced in March (21) they were to divorce.

However, the following month Joe told Entertainment Tonight the pair have "decided to stay married" and try to make things work.

Robert De Niro suffers leg injury during break from shooting

De Niro suffers leg injury

Robert De Niro has injured his leg.

The 77-year-old actor has been in Oklahoma, where he's been shooting Martin Scorsese's film Killers of the Flower Moon. And it was while he was on a break from the shoot that he suffered the injury, although the nature of how it occurred, and the extent of the injury itself, has yet to be confirmed.

According to reports, De Niro is now flying back to New York, where he will see a doctor today.

A representative for the actor confirmed the injury to Fox News.

It was reported that De Niro's injury may affect production of Killers of the Flower Moon, which also stars Leonardo DiCaprio. However, a source told TMZ.com that the shoot is "moving ahead as scheduled."

"They'd already shot the scenes they needed to get done at this point with Robert, so there won't be any delays," the set insider added. "It's unclear if he'll be back to shoot more after he's healed."



Miranda Lambert and Maren Morris lead CMT Music Awards nominations

Miranda, Maren lead noms

Miranda Lambert and Maren Morris will lead the way at the 2021 CMT Music Awards after snagging four nominations apiece.

The singers will each have a double shot of winning Video of the Year - Lambert will compete with Settling Down, as well as her Elle King duet Drunk (And I Don't Wanna Go Home), while Morris is recognized for her solo track Better Than We Found It, and Chasing After You, her collaboration with her husband, Ryan Hurd.

The leading ladies will also go head-to-head for Female Video of the Year and Collaborative Video of the Year.

Ceremony hosts Kane Brown and Kelsea Ballerini are triple nominees for the June 9 prizegiving, as are Little Big Town and Mickey Guyton, who picks up her first ever CMT Music Awards nods.

Noticeably missing from the contenders is disgraced country singer Morgan Wallen, whose music was pulled from radio and TV stations following his N-word controversy, which was leaked online in early February.

CMT bosses decided to exclude Wallen from the nominations process in the wake of the scandal, just as he was nixed from the Academy of Country Music Awards shortlist, which was revealed last month.

In a statement, network officials told Variety, "After removing Morgan Wallen from our platforms earlier this year, his videos were deemed ineligible for the 2021 CMT Music Awards."

The winners of the CMT Music awards will be decided by fans, who will help to narrow down the contenders in the top Video of the Year category in the lead up to the big show.



Police investigating intruder at Ben Affleck's Los Angeles home

Intruder at Affleck's home

Ben Affleck has the paparazzi to thank for calling the police after spotting a man scaling the wall of his Los Angeles home on Tuesday morning.

Photographers stationed outside the Argo star's property, hoping for a glimpse of Jennifer Lopez, reported the incident to police after noticing an intruder dressed in dark clothing and a jacket bearing the word "Security" climbing over the gate outside the actor's Pacific Palisades mansion.

Photo and video footage of the suspect captured him trespassing on the property, before walking away from the estate and making his getaway on a bicycle, reports the New York Post's Page Six.

He was gone by the time cops arrived to investigate, and authorities have yet to identify the suspect or make an arrest.

Affleck's representative has not commented on the security scare, which took place a day after it was revealed he and his former fiancee J.Lo had recently returned from a break in Montana amid speculation suggesting they are close to rekindling their romance, 17 years after calling off their wedding.

Lopez has since been spotted back at work in Miami, Florida, where she lives with her twins from her third marriage to Marc Anthony.



Ellen DeGeneres: 'I'm not quitting over toxic workplace allegations'

Ellen on decision to quit

Ellen DeGeneres has insisted she's not ending her show over allegations she presided over a toxic work environment.

The daytime host spoke to Today's Savannah Guthrie about her decision to leave the show after 19 years, explaining she's not ending it due to the criticism she faced last year.

However, Ellen did reveal she "really did think about not coming back because it was devastating."

DeGeneres previously addressed the toxic workplace allegations on the air in her season 18 premiere, telling viewers: "I learned that things happen here that never should have happened. I take that very seriously. And I want to say I am so sorry to the people who were affected."

And during the chat she continued to insist she had no knowledge about an allegedly toxic work environment, stating she couldn't have known.

"I don't know how I could have known when there's 255 employees here and there are a lot of different buildings, unless I literally stay here until the last person goes home at night," Ellen said. "It is my name on the show, so clearly it affects me and I have to be the one to stand up and say, 'This can't be tolerated.' But I do wish someone would have come to me and said, 'Hey, something's going on that you should know about.'"

When Guthrie asked the 63-year-old if she felt she was being "cancelled," the host responded she felt the criticism was "orchestrated."

"I really didn't understand it. I still don't understand it," she questioned. "It was too orchestrated. It was too coordinated. People get picked on, but for four months straight?"

She later added that as a woman, she found the negative coverage "very misogynistic" and it "took a toll" on her.



John Mulaney bounces back from divorce news with Olivia Munn

Mulaney dates Olivia Munn

Comedian John Mulaney has reportedly found his rebound romance days after announcing plans to divorce his wife of six years - he's dating actress Olivia Munn.

Multiple reports suggest the new couple met at church in Los Angeles.

Munn previously tweeted her support for the comic back in December when he entered rehab to conquer an alcohol and drug abuse issue, writing: "Sending SO MUCH love and support to John Mulaney. You got this."

Mulaney recently revealed he asked his wife, Anna Marie Tendler, for a divorce three months ago, and she responded by confessing his decision blindsided her.

"I am heartbroken that John has decided to end our marriage," she said through a spokesperson. "I wish him support and success as he continues his recovery."

Munn has previously dated sportsman Aaron Rodgers and she has been linked to Chris Pine, Justin Timberlake, Matthew Morrison, and Joel Kinnaman.



Paul McCartney follows eye yoga routine to help his vision

McCartney does 'eye yoga'

Paul McCartney has credited eye yoga for helping to improve his vision.

The Beatles singer learned from a yoga instructor in India to give his eyes a workout too and has been regularly doing so, something which he thinks has aided his vision.

Speaking to Jessie Ware on her Table Manners podcast, she said: "I learned off some yogi in India. He explained that your eyes are muscles. Your ears aren't, so you can't exercise your ears.

"But your eyes, you can. So head still. And then you look up as far as you can, one, two, three, go back to the middle, then down, back to the middle. You do three lots of that then go to the left and the right. Now you've got a cross, up and down, and sideways, now you do the diagonals."

Paul has a "very definite routine" when it comes to working out.

"I get on the mat, and I do a bunch of stuff there. Then, I move over to a cross-trainer (or) do a bit of running. It's not a huge workout, but it's good. I like it," the 78-year-old smiled.

Paul also regularly impresses other gym goers by doing headstands.

"If I'm in a gym and all the big guys have got big weights and they're doing all the big stuff, at the end I do a headstand. And they come over to me (and say), 'That's pretty impressive man,'" he grinned.



Sophie Turner 'disgusted' by paparazzi photos of her baby daughter

'Disgusted' by paparazzi

Sophie Turner has urged the media to stop printing photos of her baby daughter after paparazzi shots of the actress with Willa appeared online without the new mom's consent.

The former Game of Thrones star ventured out with her baby on Tuesday and she was stunned when photos of the tot started making the rounds hours later.

"I guess yesterday some paparazzi managed to get a picture of my daughter and I and I just want to say that the reason that I am not posting pictures of my daughter and making sure that we can avoid paparazzi at all costs is because I explicitly do not want those photos out there," Sophie, who is married to Joe Jonas, said in a video she posted on Instagram on Wednesday.

"She is my daughter. She did not ask for this life, to be photographed. It's f***ing creepy that grown old men taking pictures of a baby without their permission. I'm sickened, I'm disgusted and I'm respectfully asking everyone to stop following us around and stop trying to take pictures of our daughter and especially printing them... It's disgusting and you do not have my permission."



Prince Harry thought about quitting royal life in his 20s

Prince Harry's life a 'zoo'

Prince Harry compared his royal experience to being on “The Truman Show” and “living in a zoo.”

The Duke of Sussex said during a Thursday episode of the “Armchair Expert” podcast that he contemplated quitting royal life on several occasions while in his 20s. He spoke candidly with host Dax Shepard about keeping his relationship with Meghan a secret and dealing with the U.K. media scrutiny.

Harry thought his life was like the 1998 Jim Carrey film “The Truman Show.” The film tells a story about Truman Burbank’s life being televised through hidden cameras while encountering people who were hired actors.

Harry said it was a heavy burden and he struggled to deal with being a member of the royal family. He feared that his pregnant wife and son, Archie, would have to deal with the spotlight the same way his late mother, Princess Diana, had to deal with the enormous attention.

In 1997, Diana died in a car crash at the age of 36 in Paris while being pursued by paparazzi.

“I don’t want this job, I don’t want to be here, I don’t want to be doing this. Look what it did to my mum,” the 36-year-old Harry said.

In a previous interview, Harry said the royal family cut him off financially at the start of 2020 after he announced plans to step back from his roles. But he was able to afford security for his family because of the money his mother left behind.

Harry and Meghan’s departure from royal duties began last year over what they described as the British media's intrusions and racist attitudes toward the duchess. He criticized some American media outlets but said they are an improvement over the ones in the U.K.

He feels more liberated after he and his family moved to California.

“Living here now I can actually lift my head and actually feel different,” said Harry, who added he’s able to take Archie for bicycle rides. “You can walk around feeling a little bit more free.”



Rock legend Alice Cooper to auction off Andy Warhol artwork

Cooper to auction Warhol

An Andy Warhol canvas found years ago in the garage of rocker Alice Cooper could become the highest selling artwork ever in Arizona.

The music legend, who has a home in metro Phoenix, announced Thursday that he would auction off “Little Electric Chair.”

It will be up for bidding on Oct. 23 at an auction organized by the Larsen Gallery in Scottsdale. The gallery estimates it could fetch anywhere from $2.5 million to $4.5 million.

The red acrylic and silkscreen on canvas was part of Warhol's “Death and Disaster” series between 1964 and 1965. The pop artist often collected images from newspapers and magazines to use as inspiration for his work. Among them were images of the electric chair.

According to Cooper, the artwork was a birthday gift in the '70s from a girlfriend who was friends with Warhol.

Cooper also plans to make the canvas available for public viewing.

The gallery owners say they will donate part of any commission to Cooper’s nonprofit, Solid Rock, which works to bring music, dance and other forms of art to teens.

Cooper is known for outrageous makeup and performances and such hits as “School’s Out."
