Cheryl Burke had an abortion at 18

Burke admits to abortion

Cheryl Burke had an abortion at the age of 18.

The 38-year-old dancer took to Instagram upon hearing the news that the landmark Roe v Wade ruling had been overturned and admitted that she was "saddened" by the decision to remove the constitutional right to abortion.

Speaking in the video, she said: "This is really hard for me to talk about. I am saddened by the news this morning and it weighs heavy in my heart because I had an abortion when I was 18 years old. If it wasn’t for places like Planned Parenthood, I would be a mother — and I wouldn’t have been a great mother and I definitely wouldn’t be sitting here today. I got an abortion while I was going through a really huge transition in my life."

The 'Dancing with the Stars' pro - who was previously married to 'Boy Meets World' actor Matthew Lawrence from 2019 until 2022 - added that while the whole process was "traumatic", she is still "happy" about her decision and has no regrets.

She added: "I was two weeks pregnant when I got an abortion. I remember rolling up to Planned Parenthood with picketers holding anti-abortion signs and that alone was traumatic. But on top of it all, the whole process is traumatic. … I’m happy that I made that decision. I have no regrets. There is no shame behind it.

"I think I made the right decision [because] I wouldn’t be sitting here [and] I wouldn’t be passionately doing what I love to do if it wasn’t for the right to have an abortion, and this has nothing to do with anybody else."

Entourage star elopes

Adrian Grenier has eloped with Jordan Roemmele.

The 45-year-old actor - who is best known for playing Vincent Chase on the comedy series 'Entourage' - tied the knot with long-term girlfriend, Jordan, 27 in a spur-of-the-moment ceremony while on vacation.

He said: "It wasn't planned! We eloped in the Atlas Mountains while on vacation with friends in Morocco. We embraced the serendipity of the moment and made the decision to tie the knot — literally, we didn't have rings so used string for rings."

The wedding was officiated by Adrian's friend and musician friend RY X - who used his phone to get ordained before the ceremony - and performed a song for the couple.

Adrian added: "Adrian - who shot to fame in the 1990s and appeared in a slew of classic comedies including 'Drive Me Crazy' alongside 'Sabrina, the Teenage Witch' star Melissa Joan Hart - also went on to pay tribute to his friends and family and noted that his guests all "embraced the spontaneity" as they helped to create a wedding "out of thin air."

He told PEOPLE: "My friend RY X even got ordained on his cell phone at dinner — good thing we had wifi — in order to officiate the wedding, and then sang beautifully after that. We were with a group of incredible friends, all of whom immediately rallied behind us and embraced the spontaneity of the moment. They put in so much love and effort to create a wedding from thin air! We couldn't have planned a better wedding if we tried!"

The pair tend to be private about their relationship but Adrian is thought to have been dating Jordan since 2017 and back in December 2020 remarked on Instagram that he was "at peace these days" with her.

The 'Goodfellas' actor passed away in his sleep back in May 2022 at the age of 67 and now his fiancee Jacy, 47, - whom he was engaged to from December 2020 until his death - has spoken out on social media to express her grief as she continues to deal with the "unexpected loss."

I miss him every second of every day."

She added: "Each day my hint of some light is being with our children- Dax, Karsen, Chazz, Jade and Joey. Through such deep pain I find so much love and laughter. Our lives right now are so fragile yet we are each holding each other up. It’s as if we are one big blended family that was predestined beyond our wildest imaginations."(sic)

Jacy's post comes just two weeks after Karsen took to Instagram herself to thank followers and fans of her dad for their support since his death.

She wrote: "Those who knew him, loved him. You are the best Dad anyone could ask for. I love you. Thank you for everything."

Denise Richards joins OnlyFans just days after daughter Sami

Richards joins OnlyFans

Denise Richards has joined OnlyFans.

The 51-year-old model - who has Sami, 18, and Lola, 17-with ex-husband Charlie Sheen, and is also mom to adopted 11-year-old daughter Eloise - has signed up to sell racy content on the adults-only platform just weeks after her eldest daughter also created a profile and alerted fans to her new venture on Instagram.

Her bio on her page reads: "Hi…. Me. Personally answering all your comments and question’s and very excited to interact with all of you."

News of the OnlyFans account comes just weeks after 'The Bold and the Beautiful' star Denise - who is charging fans $25 per month or $67.50 for a 3-month bundle to view her content - took to social media to social media to announce her support that her daughter was to start selling X-rated photographs.

Alongside a snap of herself in a bikini top, Sami wrote on Instagram: "Click the link in my bio if u wanna see more [kiss emoji] and Denise commented: "Sami I will always support you and always have your back. I love you [heart emoji](sic)"

However, former 'Two and a Half Men' star Charlie - who split from Denise back in 2005 after four years of marriage when she was pregnant with their second child - blasted the notion that his daughter had joined OnlyFans and noted it would "not have happened" if she was still living with him.

He told PageSix: "She is 18 years old now and living with her mother. This did not occur under my roof. I do not condone this, but since I’m unable to prevent it, I urged her to keep it classy, and creative, and not sacrifice her integrity."

Back in 2021, Sami alleged that she had moved back in with her father over a year ago and accused Denise - who is married to Aaron Phypers - of running an "abusive household."

In a TikTok post, she said: "1 year ago today: trapped in an abusive household, hated myself, would go days without eating or sleeping, insanely depressed, hated school, etc…"

However, a source claimed a few weeks ago that she had moved back in with her mother "within the last month."



Queen Elizabeth has been horse-riding again almost a year after she was forced to quit due to ill health.

Queen back in the saddle

Queen Elizabeth II has been horse-riding again.

The 96-year-old monarch - who has always taken a keen interest in equestrianism throughout her 70-year- reign - was told to quit horse riding back in October 2021 as she battled through a series of "mobility issues" but has now reportedly been away for a trip around Windsor on horseback once again.

A Windsor Castle source told The Sun: "The Queen has enjoyed being on her horse again. The Queen had missed her riding over these nine months. She had been able to whizz around the castle’s Quadrangle in her golf buggy to walk her corgis."

The insider went on to explain that the Queen taking up her favourite hobby once again is a "wonderful sign" after concerns that have surrounded her health in recent months had forced her to pull out of several engagements - including her beloved Royal Ascot horse racing event - and allowed her to make only two live appearances during the Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

The source added: "Riding again is a wonderful sign after all those worries we had about her health. To be able to do so at 96 is pretty remarkable."

Back in October 2021, a source alleged that the monarch was "disappointed" to have not been able to ride for over a month after having been in "quite a bit of discomfort."

The source said: "She was in quite a bit of discomfort. She adores riding and it has been part of her ritual for most of her life. She has been extremely disappointed not to go riding since the beginning of September."

Joe Exotic is dating ex again

The 'Tiger King' star - who is currently doing time after being found guilty of a murder-for-hire plot against rival Carole Baskin and is in the middle of divorce proceedings with ex-husband Dillon - who split from his fiance John Graham last Thursday (16.06.22) and is now said to have stuck up a relationship with former flame Seth.

Autumn Blackledge, the divorce attorney for the 59-year-old reality star said: "Joe is thankful that Seth is back in his life. They are both taking things slowly and just enjoying the time to reconnect."

Joe - whose real name is Joseph Maldonado-Passage - first met John while they were both behind bars in Fort Worth, Texas, in February 2021 - explained that while prison life is "tough", he believes that he and John were "in love" at one point and he intends to keep in touch with him in the future.

Joe's attorney told ETOnline: "Joe has shared with me that prison is a very tough place to be... you meet all kinds of people in prison and that most are really good. John Graham spent 10 years of his life in prison and Joe states that he would like to believe that they did fall in love.

Joe will continue to have a close relationship with his son and some members of John’s family. He has nothing bad to say about John Graham and wishes him well as he gets his life. "

Autumn added that Joe - who is currently serving 21 years in prison and dated Seth for a matter of months towards the end of 2021 - just wants to be "happy" and wants to "go home" as soon as possible.

She added: "Now that a very special man has come back, [Joe] just wants to be happy and, for God’s sake, to go home.



Elon Musk's daughter granted legal name, gender change

Musk disowned by daughter

A California judge has approved a request by Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s adult daughter to change her name and gender on her birth certificate.

Vivian Jenna Wilson filed the petition in Los Angeles County Superior Court the day after turning 18 in April.

She listed gender identity and an apparent dislike of her father, as the reason for the change.

“I no longer live with or wish to be related to my biological father in any way, shape or form,” she wrote on the petition.

Judge Rafael Ongkeko approved the petition Wednesday in the Santa Monica courthouse after no one objected to the change. A hearing that had been scheduled for Friday was canceled. The court order said a new birth certificate would be issued reflecting the change.

Vivian will now legally use the last name of her mother, Canadian author Justine Wilson, who was married to Musk from 2000 to 2008.

The couple had five children, the oldest of which died as an infant. Vivian has a twin brother.

Musk has been married three times, including twice to “Westworld” actress Talulah Riley. He has two young children with the singer Grimes.

On Father’s Day, Musk tweeted: “I love all my my kids so much.”

Musk, 50, who is currently trying to buy Twitter for $44 billion, has previously said he supports transgender people, though he was criticized for dismissing the use of different pronouns.

“I absolutely support trans, but all these pronouns are an esthetic nightmare,” he tweeted in December 2020.

In July 2020, he tweeted “Pronouns suck.”

The Associated Press attempted to reach Vivian Jenna Wilson for comment but phone calls were not answered and text messages were not immediately returned.



Natalie Portman ignores bad reviews

Portman ignores bad reviews

Natalie Portman doesn't pay attention to bad reviews.

The 41-year-old star's movie debut 'Leon: The Professional' and her role as Padme Amidala in the 'Star Wars' prequel trilogy were panned by the critics but the star suggested that the new-found appreciation for the films shows how things can change.

Explaining how she dealt with the poor reviews for 'Thor: The Dark World', Natalie told Variety: "I mean, I had it with 'The Professional' too.

"It was slaughtered critically, and now, despite having been in Marvel and 'Star Wars' movies, it's the main thing people come up to me about.

"That and 'Star Wars' are two examples of things that when they came out, I was like, 'Oh, my God, this is a disaster.' And then 20 years later - actually, 30 years later for 'The Professional' - its beloved."

Natalie returns to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) as Jane Foster/Mighty Thor in 'Thor: Love and Thunder' and director Taika Waititi wanted her alter ego to be more than just the love interest for Chris Hemsworth's titular superhero.

The filmmaker explained: "I've seen her play the scientist character in 'Thor' 1 and 2, and it just seemed pointless to do it again. That character just feels like a love interest. It's an Earthwoman who runs around being mortal and not really consequential throughout."

Natalie will now be playing a superhero in her own right and explained that she had to bulk up for the role.

She explained: "On 'Black Swan', I was asked to get as small as possible. Here, I was asked to get as big as possible. That's an amazing challenge - and also state of mind as a woman."



John Cena breaks Make A Wish Foundation record with 650 wishes granted

John Cena's 650 wishes

John Cena has become the first celebrity to grant 650 wishes for the Make-A-Wish-Foundation.

The WWE legend and Hollywood superstar has hit an incredible milestone for the charity and made more wishes than any other celebrity in its history.

No other star has ever made it past the 300 landmark, and Cena's achievement comes as WWE is celebrated 20 years since his debut for the company.

Speaking when he was honoured for granting 500 wishes, the 45-year-old star said: "I just drop everything.

"If I can offer a fantastic experience, I’ll be first in line to do my part.”

The 'Peacemaker' actor is the organisation's most requested celebrity.

The foundation itself helps fulfill the wishes of children between the ages of two and a half and eight, who are battling critical illnesses.

Earlier this year, Cena said: "The reason I love Make-A-Wish so much is because those are those families’ wishes.

"You can do anything you want, and Make-A-Wish’s list is enormous, they literally will do anything you want. ‘I want to kick it with John Cena and go see him wrestle.’ That is the coolest thing I have ever heard in my life."

Cena admitted it can be "difficult" when he gets correspondence from families whose children have passed since their meetings.

He added: "Those are always difficult to read. But at the same time, the strength of the parents in sending me a message about how much the time that I spent with their child meant to them, it’s very special.”

And Cena previously opened up on his very first Make-A-Wish - which he granted in 2002 - and his promise to always be there if the organisation had someone who wanted to meet him.

He said: “I said, ‘If you ever need me for this ever, I don’t care what I’m doing, I will drop what I’m doing and be involved because I think that’s the coolest thing.' "

Meanwhile, the wrestler will be back on 'WWE Raw' on Monday (27.06.22) as part of the company's 'Cena Month' celebrations.

Model and influencer dead

Niece Waidhofer has died.

The 31-year-old model-and-influencer's body was discovered some time last month after law enforcement officers called to her home in Houston, Texas, to carry out a welfare check, and her family have confirmed she has taken her own life after a "long battle" with mental health issues

Niece's family said in a statement given to TMZ: "Sadly, Niece took her own life after a long battle with mental health issue.

"She was very open with her followers about her struggles. Even wanting to help followers who also suffered."

But they are keen for Niece to be remembered for more than just her problems.

They added: "Niece was more than her struggles. She was beautiful and kind, sensitive and funny, creative and talented, generous and compassionate, thoughtful and challenging.

"While it is so very painful to say goodbye. We take comfort knowing she is reunited with her father, her three grandparents, her Uncle Rusty, and her beloved Puff; and that she is now free to be herself and, finally, at peace."

In memory of the model, her loved ones are planning to set up a non-profit organisation called 'Peace from Niece', which will focus on mental health awareness and providing grants to those working on mental illness research.

The confirmation of Niece's passing comes shortly after she concerned fans when she removed almost all of her posts from Instagram, leaving just three posts up.

The most recent was from March and was a selfie with the caption: "Mildly interesting: blonde is actually my natural color, I have been living a lies all these years.(sic)"

One of the other posts was her engagement announcement from 2015, and the other a short video clip of her dancing with her dog.



Brad Pitt: I felt safe at Alcoholics Anonymous

Brad Pitt felt safe at AA

Brad Pitt felt "safe" at Alcoholics Anonymous.

The 58-year-old actor decided to get sober after his split from Angelina Jolie in 2016, and Brad is glad that he found a "really private and selective" group of people who wouldn't betray his trust.

The Hollywood star - whose divorce was finalised in 2019 - shared: "I had a really cool men's group here that was really private and selective, so it was safe, because I'd seen things of other people, like Philip Seymour Hoffman, who had been recorded while they were spilling their guts, and that's just atrocious to me."

Brad remains on a mission to improve his health, after he managed to kick his smoking habit amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 'Moneyball' star initially tried to limit the amount he smoked - but he eventually decided to commit to his ambition wholeheartedly.

He told the July/August issue of British GQ magazine: "I don't have that ability to do just one or two a day. It's not in my make-up. I'm all in. And I'm going to drive into the ground. I've lost my privileges."

Brad has also grown closer to his friends and family in recent years.

The actor is now committed to forging more meaningful connections, having felt "very alone" for so much of his life.

Speaking at his home in the Hollywood Hills, Brad said: "I always felt very alone in my life, alone growing up as a kid, alone even out here, and it's really not till recently that I have had a greater embrace of my friends and family.

"What's that line, it was either Rilke or Einstein, believe it or not, but it was something about when you can walk with the paradox, when you carry real pain and real joy simultaneously, this is maturity, this is growth."

The July/August issue of British GQ is available via digital download and on newsstands on June 28.
