The royal rascal and his lovely ladyfriend have been spotted wearing matching bracelets — and Meghan is also sporting a necklace featuring a tiny “H” (above).

THE PRINCE AND HIS HONEY GOT BUSY BEHIND CLOSED DOORS IN TORONTO!

C

HRISTMAS came early for actress Meghan Markle, in the form of a visit from a handsome, redheaded Santa, otherwise known as her boyfriend, Prince Harry. On Dec. 4, despite a hectic travel schedule, England’s most eligible bachelor (but perhaps not for long) arrived at the sexy Suits star’s home in Toronto with a phalanx of security guards in tow. He then told them to hit the road as he and Meghan spent the next two evenings alone, up close and personal — and neighbors say the duo never left the house! Harry, 32, and Meghan, 35, a California native, met back in May at a charity

event in Toronto. They went public with their relationship in late October — but after the couple had to deal with the sudden glare of publicity, Harry had Kensington Palace issue a statement in November requesting respect for their privacy. The cooling off of the spotlight seems to have resulted in a heating up of their relationship, to the point where the couple is now wearing matching “his and hers” beaded bracelets, and Meghan has even been flaunting a slim, gold necklace from which a small letter “H” dangles. “Harry and Meghan seem to have a good handle on balancing their careers

K

ELLY Clarkson’s second child was a boon to her family but the bane of her waistline, as she struggles to lose the baby weight eight months after giving birth. The American Idol alum looked uncomfortable when she stopped by a radio show in NYC on Dec. 5 to promote her children’s book, River Rose and the Magical Lullaby, and a source says the 34-year-old is miserable with her figure. “Kelly is at her heaviest yet,” the insider says, estimating that the

5-foot-3 singer is pushing 200 pounds. “She’s a down-home Texas girl who loves comfort food, and it’s hard to stick to a diet when there are four kids in the house who are always hungry.” Kelly is mom to daughter River Rose, 2, and baby boy Remington Alexander, 8 months, with her husband, Brandon Blackstock, and she’s stepmom to his daughter Savannah, 14, and son Seth, 10, from a previous marriage. Kelly, who was recently nominated for several Grammys, has gone up and down on the scale since her big win

in 2002, but she knows that her Idol body is a distant memory. “Everybody calls me fat all the time... I’ve never been Gisele Bündchen, so ain’t nobody expecting that,” she said defiantly during her first pregnancy, but Star’s insider adds that her husband loves her just the way she is. “Brandon wants what she wants,” reveals the spy. “He knows she’s not happy being fat, so in 2017, they’re going to try to get fit together.” No gingerbread man tastes as good as a supportive husband feels!

JULIA HATEFUL OVER HATEFULOVER

‘EIGHT’!

CAN’T SIT WITH US!

Julia Roberts may have been the star of Ocean’s Eleven and Ocean’s Twelve, but the actress is feeling all washed up after failing to land a role in the all-female Ocean’s Eight. “She’s insulted to be passed up,” dishes a source, adding that while execs explained that her character Tess simply isn’t in the movie, Julia sees it as a sign that her star power is starting to fade. “She can’t believe that Rihanna got a part over her! This movie has hit written all over it and Julia wanted in.” Wanted and possibly needed. After her last movie, Mother’s Day, bombed at the box office, Julia was hoping that a role alongside Cate Blanchett and Sandra Bullock would put her back on top. “It’s been a long time since she had a successful movie,” adds the insider. “She can’t believe there’s not even room for her to do a cameo.” Pretty woman, time to walk on by this one! H

A BLANK SPACE?

TAYLOR’S

SQUAD OVERHAUL

Forget “Take up CrossFit” or “Learn to make sushi”— Taylor Swift has a much cattier New Year’s resolution: Get smarter friends! “Taylor’s tired of her old crew full of models. This year, she’s planning to build a squad that seems sharper in the brains department,” says a source, adding that she’s going to shake off professional pretty faces like Gigi Hadid and Cara Delevingne. “She wants to hang out more with Aziz Ansari, Blake Lively and Broadway star TodrickHall. People she considers more substantial.” But Taylor’s clique reconstruction has less to do with legit friendships than it does rebranding. “Taylor’s reputation took a beating this year, and she needs to reinvent herself,” explains the Swift source. “Certain people just aren’t a good fit for her anymore.” But there used to be mad love?

BIEBER

GETS BIBLICAL!

Holy moly, has Justin Bieber turned over a new (palm) leaf? Witnesses described the hotheaded singer as “calmer than ever” during a taping of The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “He kept saying ‘God bless’ and thanking Jesus,” recalls the source. “He was literally handing people Bibles like a preacher on the street.” While the evangelism was certainly unexpected, the Biebs’ tranquil demeanor was a welcome change from the volatility audiences have come to dread — even Ellen said that she’d never seen him look so healthy. “Nobody could believe how serene he was,” marveled the witness. “The Bible thing was definitely weird, but at least it’s a change for the better!” If it ain’t broke, thou shalt not fix it!

“Carpool Karaoke” king James Corden needs to pump the breaks on his oversize ego, say sources o behind the scenes at The Late Late b SShow. The affable British host has become a household name and will b be hosting the upcoming Grammys, but his friendly persona doesn’t sstretch to his employees — namely his wardrobe department. h “He’s always snapping his fingers and ordering people around, it’s awful,” complains a crew member. “I don’t know if he thinks he’s being funny or what, but styling him has become a nightmare.” The insider says that while James certainly isn’t hyper-concerned with his figure, he is “obsessed” with his clothes and will throw tantrums over an outfit that isn’t to his liking. “If he doesn’t like something he’ll wad it up and throw it on the floor and hiss ‘Terrible, get rid of it!’ ” H

HOT FOR HOUGH

Jennifer Lopez is ready to dance again — with hunk Derek Hough. Per a source, the Dancing With the Stars pro, 31, has swept the newly single cougar, 47, off her feet after signing on to her new reality competition, World of Dance. “Jennifer has had her eye on Derek for years. Her team was instructed to pay him whatever it took to lure him away from DWTS,” the insider reveals. “And it worked! Jennifer has arranged a few fancy dinners under the guise of ‘talking shop,’ but it’s really just an excuse to get him alone.” Derek isn’t the first paramour J.Lo’s poached from the payroll. She was cutting back-up dancer Casper Smart checks long before they dated. Adds the source: “Derek might be dating [dancer] Hayley Erbert at the moment, but there’s no denying he finds J.Lo smoking hot.” H

At one point, Karl got up to make a call — he was gone for ages!” Just last month, the actress, 31, announced that she was ready to remarry and soon, which may have spooked the equestrian, 26. “Kaley would lean over the table and make eyes at him, but Karl barely said a word,” says the spy. “He did pick up the check, but only after it sat there on the table for what felt like forever.” And they said chivalry was dead...

So much for living happily Everly after...

HIS could have been the merriest Christmas ever for Miranda Lambert. Her latest album, The Weight of These Wings, has been riding the top of the country music charts, and judging from her lyrics, it seemed like Miranda had healed after her devastating split from ex-hubby Blake Shelton and had found true love with her hunky boyfriend, R&B/country crooner Anderson East. “You already know me well,” she sings in “Pushin’ Time,” a tender duet with her beau about a lifelong romance. “If it has to end in tears, I hope it’s in 60 years.” But their love has turned out to be anything but enduring: Sources say that after just one year together, Anderson has suddenly called it quits with the country superstar! “He decided to leave Miranda because he feels

that she’s never really gotten over Blake, and he’s fed up,” an insider tells Star. “Now Miranda has been dumped again, just like she was when Blake filed for divorce. She couldn’t feel more alone and miserable.”

Gwen Gets the Last Laugh Blake, 40, and Gwen, 47, “are probably gloating over Miranda’s predicament,” claims the insider. “I’m not surprised I heard that Gwen said Miranda ‘got what she deserved!’ ”

ON THE FAST TRACK It was a shocking turn of events for Miranda, 33, who had fallen hard for Anderson, 28, a rowdy bad boy who had been busted for driving while high on pot as a teenager. Shortly after going public with their relationship last December, Miranda was claiming that they were already as close as a married couple: “It’s not about a piece of paper or a diamond [but] the way you feel... and the commitment in your heart.” By August — when she proudly wore her heart on her sleeve and her shirt, sporting the words “Anderson East!” during her concert in Irvine, Calif. — Miranda was DECEMBER 26, 2016

KICKING HER WHEN SHE’S DOWN

Even though it’s been almost a year and a half since Blake divorced Miranda, he can’t seem to stop digging the knife in by constantly complimenting lover Gwen Stefani. During a Dec. 2 appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Blake made a point of describing his “hot” gal pal as “the most normal person that I have ever met.” The insider tells Star: “That comment was clearly meant to be a low blow aimed at Miranda by comparison — and I’m sure it’s especially hurtful now.” even ready for a traditional ceremony, reportedly telling friends that she and Anderson had decided to tie the knot and that she couldn’t wait to start a family. Determined to put her painful past behind her, she put the Nashville-area mansion she once shared with Blake up for sale one month later. WARNING SIGNS But friends say the country queen never realized that Anderson had already developed reservations about their relationship. “He began to feel that Miranda was still hung up on Blake — and was still in love with him,” claims the insider. “He got angry and called her out on it. I even heard that she committed the ultimate sin — she accidentally called Anderson ‘Blake’ one night in bed! Unfortunately, I get the feeling Miranda will always be obsessed with Blake, to the point of it wreaking havoc on any other relationship.” And it isn’t just Blake who’s been holding Miranda’s interest — she also can’t stop fixating on his lover, The Voice judge Gwen Stefani, ever since they announced their romance just months after Blake divorced Miranda in July 2015. “She never puts her phone down because she’s constantly 34 Star D E C E M B E R

monitoring both their accounts on social media,” says the insider. “She even did it right in front of Anderson, which was a real slap in the face!” The insider also claims that “Miranda can be a wildcat when she gets her temper up and can really be a handful. I think Anderson got tired of dealing with her rages.” Finally, says the insider, Miranda unwittingly sabotaged any last chance

of keeping their romance alive when she put their earlier, tentative wedding plans on hold in November, telling Anderson she was too busy traveling and promoting her new album. The insider adds: “I believe that gave him time to think everything over — and he realized it was probably time to bail.” WHAT GOES AROUND... Miranda’s checkered romantic history with Blake may also have come back to haunt her. As Star has reported, she allegedly had affairs with at least five men during their nine-year relationship — including Blake’s friend, country star Jamey Johnson; a former tourmate, singer Chris Young; and pro baseball pitching star Josh Beckett. “It’s almost like karma for Miranda,” the insider says. “The thought of her cheating broke Blake’s heart, but now she’s the one who’s crushed.” However, there may be a silver lining for Miranda. While she’s nursing her wounds, friends are trying to convince her that the breakup, painful as it is, may be all for the better. “A lot of people think Anderson was just using her to get publicity for his career,” says the insider. “If that’s true, that alone would have made him a bad choice for Miranda to blindly get trapped with in a long relationship — let alone a husband! “Miranda’s friends are there to support her, and everyone is hoping that once she gets past her heartbreak, she’ll eventually realize that she’s better off having him out of her life.” H

WILD BY NATURE

HIS 2007 MUG SHOT

Anderson was on the road to stardom when he hooked up with Miranda a year ago, but before that he took a detour in 2007 at age 18, when he was pulled over by the Tennessee Highway Patrol in Chattanooga and arrested for DUI after he admitted he’d been smoking marijuana. He spent an hour in the county jail and was released after posting a $1,500 bond. “He clearly had a bit of the hellraiser in him — and I’ll bet he still does,” says the insider. “That’s something Miranda should have been thinking about.”

The affair destroyed their marriages to, respectively, Brandi Glanville and Dean Sheremet.

STAR ATTRACTION? Even though Jaina, 30, is happily married to writer/director Bradley Marques, “she’s gorgeous and vivacious, and Eddie

can’t wipe the smile from his face when he’s with her,” an insider tells Star. “There seems to be a real connection between them, so it’s no wonder LeAnn’s jealous. After all, if anyone knows about how on-set romances get started, it’s her — even though I think she’s way off base this time.” It hasn’t helped matters that Jaina has also been gushing about Eddie like a schoolgirl. “He’s amazing!” she told an interviewer last September. “He’s Cuban and adds so much of that spice and flavor... He’s so damn fine! Don’t tell my husband I said that, but he knows anyway.” The insider adds: “Jaina is obviously just having fun with the situation — but LeAnn doesn’t see it that way, and it’s driving her nuts.” Adding fuel to the fire? Jaina’s Instagram post of last month, showing her and castmates, including Eddie, celebrating her 30th birthday in Los Angeles — while LeAnn was 2,000 miles away, performing at a concert in Wetumpka, Alabama. COPYCAT BEHAVIOR Indeed, LeAnn seems to have reverted to a disturbing pattern from her past, when she had a compulsion to mimic Eddie’s ex,

ANIMAL INSTINCTS This summer, LeAnn posted a shot of herself with Max, the dog on Eddie’s series Rosewood (above), just hours after Jaina did the same.

Ironically, the two exes, Brandi and Dean, are cohosting My Kitchen Rules, a reality cooking show that premieres on Fox on Jan. 12. “Rosewood is a hit show, so Eddie and Jaina will only grow closer,” the insider says. “That’s bad news for LeAnn, because she would love it if Rosewood got canceled!” H

HE LEF LE DANCER BRYAN TANAKA’S RECENT EX IS SOMETHING THAT HIS NEW LOVE, SUPERSTAR DIVA MARIAH CAREY, WILL NEVER BE, SAYS A SOURCE: “NORMAL!”

Hey, Handsome! Dressed in her typical demure style, Mariah gazed adoringly at Bryan during the Dec. 4 premiere party for her new reality series in NYC.

Heart On Her Sleeve Bryan’s longtime girlfriend, dancer Jaimie Goodwin, made it crystal clear how she felt about her beau in this touching post to Instagram.


Boy Toy:

LOVER LOV

FT BEHIND

FOOTWORK AND FATE Jaimie’s own career has been noteworthy. A teacher/trainer as well as a dancer, the Virginia native was a top-10 finalist on season 3 of the Fox series So You Think You Can Dance, and has been a featured performer on everything from the Academy Awards and Emmys to Glee and Mad Men. And clearly, she was mad about Bryan. The duo met in a dance studio in 2009, then went on a date to the Cheesecake

Factory. “There was a lot of flirting; the seed was planted,” Bryan told the website Dancespirit.com in a 2014 interview. He then got tickets for Jaimie to see him perform at a Beyoncé concert in Washington, D.C. “I was hypnotized by [Bryan’s] good looks and charm,” she told the website, “and now here we are.” Jaimie added, “Our moral values and spiritual beliefs are very similar.” Bryan put an exclamation point on his feelings for Jaimie: “She’s continuously a reminder of what it is to be an awesome human being. She makes me want to step up and be a better man.” LOST TREASURE Now, says the source, it seems Bryan has forgotten the life lessons he learned from Jaimie. “I understand there’s no such thing as bad publicity, so you have to take everything that’s happened with Mariah’s TV series approaching with a grain of salt. But I can’t believe Bryan would allow his name to be attached to rumors about the reason for Mariah’s breakup with James Packer.” The source adds: “Honestly, after being with Jaimie, I can’t see Bryan having anything to do romantically with Mariah — a hard-partying, twice-married, total diva who seems like she would panic if she didn’t have 10 assistants around to help with a broken fingernail. On the other hand, besides being an awesome professional, Jaimie is beautiful, bright, sexy and most important, genuine. She even has an inspirational blog where she talks about how she’s had to overcome a devastating knee surgery to get back to dancing. “Basically, you couldn’t find two people more radically different than Mariah and Jaimie. And if Bryan has actually fallen for Mariah, then those ‘moral values’ of his that Jaimie loved so much must have flown out the window.” H

A TWOSOME TOTALLY IN STEP

Bryan and Jaimie packed a lot of love, fun and adventure into their long relationship — a fact she documented in countle ss Facebook posts: Celebrating the Christm as holidays together (1); sightseeing at Big Ben during a trip to London (2); Easter silliness at her family home in Virginia (3); and skydiving on his birthday (4). In fact, Brya n seems to have left his mark on Jaimie in other places besides her heart (5).

PECULATION as to the real nature of the supposed romance between Mariah Carey and her sexy backup dancer Bryan Tanaka had been swirling for weeks, ever since the superstar broke off her engagement to Australian billionaire James Packer in October — and whispers emerged that Mariah and Bryan had gotten too close for James’ comfort. The sultry songbird and the hunky hoofer then went public with their apparent affection, kissing and cavorting in the surf during a Thanksgiving weekend trip to Hawaii. So perhaps it didn’t come as a total surprise that in an interview after the Dec. 4 premiere of the new reality TV series Mariah’s World, Bryan, 33, professed his feelings for the 46-year-old star by stating: “I’ve always had a thing for Mariah. I love her so much!” He’s also claimed that he “turned into a man” during his long association with Mariah, which began in 2005. That may or may not come as a surprise to Bryan’s recent ex, dancer Jaimie Goodwin, 28. They were a couple for seven years — and were even living together in L.A. “Of course, Jaimie’s proud of what Bryan has accomplished, with Mariah and otherwise,” a source tells Star. “But Bryan admitting that he’s always had a thing for Mariah has got to be painful for Jaimie to hear.”

“I think Naomi owes it to Charlie’s memory to tell it like it really was!” — a friend tells Star

TEEN LOVERS “Charlie and Naomi had more of a relationship in high school than she’s ever admitted to,” a friend of Charlie Jordan — Wynonna Judd’s look-alike real father — tells Star. Charlie was a year ahead of Naomi (then known by her real first name of Diana) at Paul G. Blazer High School in Ashland, Ky. (right).

Putting Her Pain In Print Naomi’s new book (above) details her recent battle with severe depression.


Judd

THE COUNTRY STAR’S SECOND AUTOBIOGRAPHY HAS BEEN RELEASED — BUT SHE STILL CAN’T GET HER FACTS STRAIGHT ABOUT DAUGHTER WYNONNA’S REAL DAD.

RUTH ABOUT HER

PREGNANCY I N 1993, Naomi Judd — one-half of the Judds, her blockbuster mother/ daughter country duo with offspring Wynonna — wrote her autobiography, Love Can Build a Bridge, detailing what she claimed had been her hardscrabble upbringing in rural Kentucky, frightening encounters with child molesters and psycho boyfriends, and the miracle of beating her “terminal” diagnosis of Hepatitis C. At the time, some reviewers marveled over the seemingly endless number of “melodramatic” episodes in her life and pointed out that Naomi seemed to have a few different versions of her life story — it had previously been reported she’d been raised solidly middle-class on an estate near a country club! It turned out her book also played fast and loose with the facts surrounding Wynonna’s birth, with Naomi claiming the father was Michael Ciminella, a high school pal whom she later wed. But Star put that tale to rest in 1995 with the exclusive revelation that Naomi’s secret high school boyfriend, Charlie Jordan, was actually Wynonna’s dad. Now Naomi, 70, is out with her second autobiography, River of Time, centered on her recent battle with crippling depression. The book also revisits her early life — and as a friend of Jordan’s tells Star, “Naomi once again gives Wynonna’s dad short shrift!”

MORE THAN AN “ACQUAINTANCE” In River of Time, Naomi finally admits that she and Jordan conceived their daughter one night in the summer of 1963 at her parents’ house (she was 17 at the time). But she writes that she went through with the encounter to “distract” herself from other problems, saying she hoped

A retired railroad worker, Charlie passed away in 2000 — without ever having met or received a phone call from his daughter in the five years after Star’s story. “That hurt Charlie so badly,” says a friend. to “become [Charlie’s] girlfriend,” then harshly states that Jordan “had taken my virginity” because “I was caught up in his desire and beyond having reasonable judgement.” Naomi then claims Jordan “packed up and disappeared” after she told him she was pregnant — and that she later heard he was “working for the railroad.” Charlie Jordan gave his one and only interview after Star tracked him down in the remote Kentucky countryside in 1995. And while it was true that he eventually worked for (and retired from) the railroad, his memories of Naomi and their relationship were totally at odds with hers. He insisted they had already been “dating each other for a year” when they made love that one time — “I even took her to my senior prom,” he revealed. “There was something special between Naomi and me.” He added that far from “disappearing,” he left to attend Western Kentucky

University. Naomi later wrote him that she told Michael Ciminella he was the child’s father: “She asked me not to worry... and to burn the letter,” Charlie said. UNFULFILLED DREAM “Charlie vowed never to speak publicly again about his past with Naomi, and he kept that promise,” a friend tells Star. “He also refused to contact Wynonna — he told me, ‘It wouldn’t be right to suddenly intrude in her life’ — but he desperately hoped she would reach out to him after the truth became known. Sadly, she never did, and Charlie died of a heart attack in 2000. “Charlie Jordan was one of the most sincere, decent and down-to-earth people I ever knew — it’s a shame there wasn’t any storybook ending between him and his daughter. And I also think it’s a shame that Naomi can’t seem to come clean about their history.”H DECEMBER 26, 2016

Under Suspicion The weird circumstances surrounding Sherri’s abduction have cast a shadow on her and her husband, Keith — the parents of son Tyler (left), 4, and daughter Violet, 2.

The Sh Th Sherri Papini Case

WAS IT A

H HOAX? O X I T’S the criminal case that has gripped the nation. On Nov. 2, beautiful, blonde mom of two Sherri Papini vanished during a morning jog near her home in Redding, Calif. For three weeks, police chased hundreds of leads on the 34-year-old housewife; all of them seemed to be dead ends, and her family’s desperate pleas for her return went unanswered. Then, in the early morning hours of Nov. 24, Sherri was found on the side of a highway, her arms shackled with a chain, her nose broken and her body covered in bruises, her hair chopped off and a message branded on her skin. But she was alive, and soon back

with her family — her nightmare seemed to be over. In the weeks since, however, serious doubts have been cast on Sherri and her husband, Keith, and their account of her bizarre ordeal. Sherri claimed she was abducted at gunpoint by two Hispanic women in an SUV and repeatedly beaten for 22 days, until she was suddenly set free when her captors shoved her out of their vehicle; she later told police that her captors had kept their faces hidden. One investigator suggested afterwards that Sherri had been kidnapped by a sex trafficking ring. But a disturbing lack of evidence and motive, as well as Keith’s

behavior, have given rise to a number of strange theories about her alleged kidnapping — including suspicions that it may have been an elaborate hoax staged by the Papini family themselves! “As horrible as it may seem, that possibility has to be considered, and even police have not ruled it out,” a source says. “But who would stage a crime in which a wife is beaten and branded? It’s almost too upsetting to contemplate.” SUDDEN CRISIS Keith, 33, claimed he last saw Sherri as he left for his job at Best Buy at 7 a.m. on Nov. 2, and that after he came home and

Twenty-two days after Sherri disappeared, motorist Alison Sutton called 911 after catching a glimpse of the missing mom of two waving on the side of the road in the early morning darkness. Police later found Sherri on the interstate near Sacramento, 150 miles from her home.

He then called 911. Keith soon offered rewards of $50,000 and then $100,000, raised through a GoFundMe account, for Sherri’s safe return. He then hired a local private investigator, Cameron Gamble, who also offered (and later withdrew) rewards of $50,000 and $100,000, which has some wondering where all the money has gone. More eyebrows were raised when it was discovered that Gamble’s organization, Project TAKEN — which trains Christian mis-

In yet another strange twist to the Papini kidnapping, 16-year-old Redding resident Tera Smith, who attended Central Valley High School at the same time as Sherri, disappeared in 1998 while on the same jogging path that Sherri was on when her ordeal began. No trace of Tera was ever found. Eyebrows were raised when it was discovered that Sherri’s hubby, Keith, asked Tera’s parents’ opinion on whether he should get the FBI involved a couple of days after his wife went missing.

sionaries to “survive and escape hostile situations” — had earlier made a video that mirrored many of the specifics of Sherri’s abduction. After Sherri was found (see box, above), hubby Keith released a statement in which he seemed weirdly compelled to describe his wife’s horrific injuries: “My reaction was one of... overwhelming nausea as my eyes and hands scanned her body...” DISAPPEARING ACT? Keith volunteered to take — and passed — a lie detector test, but suspicions lingered. “I understand people want... proof that this was not some sort of hoax [or] plan to

gain money,” he later said. “I do not see a purpose in addressing each preposterous lie.” At press time, the Papinis had reportedly left Redding and gone into hiding — leaving unsettling questions in their wake. “This is one of the most unusual kidnapping stories ever — it even seems to mimic some hit movies,” says the source. “Did the husband arrange to have his wife kidnapped in order to get ransom money, like in Fargo? Or did the wife pretend to be kidnapped, like in Gone Girl? The truth will eventually come out — and it might yet be stranger than anything Hollywood could think up!”H DECEMBER 26, 2016

EMILY RATAJKOWSKI She’s Gone, Girl! The video vixen scored a role in the thriller, but since her next film, 2015’s We Are Your Friends, bombed, she’s been MIA from the big screen... but not your phone screen. She’s doing her best to stay relevant one topless selfie at a time — but maybe it’s time to nip her star status in the bud once and for all.

ROBERT PATTINSON The Twilight heartthrob hasn’t been twi— er, trying too hard to stay in the spotlight since his vampy franchise wrapped up in 2012.

World W ld Fossil Q Wander, $295, fossil.com

You’re in the campaign for the Fossil Q Wander watch — tell us about it. It’s the brand’s tech-savvy wearable that’s also fashionable. It links up to my iPhone, so I can check my Google Calendar, email, the weather and steps! I use the calendar the most — I’m running around to appointments and the reminders are really useful. I also love checking up on how many steps I’ve logged for the day.

EWOK’S (WATCH) FACE!

Have you had any creative input with the watch? I designed a custom watch face, featuring my dog, Ewok! It’s interactive — it shows his reactions when you check the weather, like wearing sunglasses when it’s sunny; when you check steps, it shows him walking. It’s really creative.


What items do you wear that give you the most confidence? A killer pair of heels, because they make me walk differently. I love anything by Sophia Webster, because all her shoes [right] are so fun. I’m also into the tall Stuart Weitzman Highland boots because they fit perfectly, are slimming and elongate my legs.

What holiday outfits are you looking forward to wearing?

We have a joke that I always get exasperated when he asks for help on what to wear: He already has great style, but he likes to walk through the options, especially when we’re packing for a trip.

Stuart Weitzman The Highland Boot, $798, stuartweitzman.com

What are your favorite red carpet moments? I adore the Giambattista Valli yellow chiffon strapless dress that I wore to the Sucker Punch premiere! It was so glam. More recently, the Vivienne Tam suede dress with a metallic mock top and burgundy boots during New York Fashion Week. It was semicasual but still dressy and interesting. I felt really confident in it.

What made you start your blog, What the Chung? What’s the best style tip you’ve ever gotten? To always keep two strips of double-sided adhesive tape in my bag for a fashion emergency. You never know if something is going to fall apart or if it’s exposing too much! I find it really useful. Hollywood Fashion Secrets Fashion Tape, $11, hollywoodfashionsecrets.com

I was in between film roles and had all this energy. It’s a great creative outlet — whenever I’m eating delicious food or traveling in a beautiful city, I want to share it! It has kept me sane at the slowest parts of my career.

How do you keep up with the latest looks? I utilize my closet and get creative. Plus, I’m always purging — if you see what you have, it’s much easier to put an outfit together. I like to have fun with clothes. If I see something on the street or the Internet that I like, or a combination of textures that look good, I’ll make a list of what to try next! DECEMBER 26, 2016

EDUCATION IS SWEETER. Six days a week, Jose toiled long hours in sugarcane fields, swinging a machete, working with heavy machinery, carrying heavy loads and applying fertilizers and pesticides. He got little schooling. n And he wasn’t alone in being exploited. In his country, as many as 200,000 children labor in sugarcane fields. But ChildFund International and its partners went to work – and got Jose, Raul and thousands more children out of the fields and into school. n In 30 countries, ChildFund is disrupting poverty and improving the lives of more than 17 million children.

Questions

If you want to start the New Year in some splashy new digs, and you’ve got the down payment burning a hunka-hunka hole in your pocket, you can purchase the Beverly Hills pad previously owned by Elvis and Priscilla Presley. The four-bedroom, five-bathroom home in the French Regency style was probably a convenient pied-à-terre for the King, who bought it during

the height of his movie-making period. While a mere shack compared to 23-room Graceland, the pricey property boasts floor-to-ceiling windows, multiple fireplaces and ample outdoor lounging and entertaining areas, plus city-to-ocean views to take your breath away. Elvis officially left the building in 1973, but the joint just went on the market. So grab it — it’s now or never! H

FEAR OF FLYING?

What’s Angie asking Brad for now? Angelina Jolie is insisting that she and estranged husband Brad Pitt attend joint sessions with a trauma specialist to “learn how to best support and interact with their children” — in addition to the family therapy they’re already undergoing. Apparently, Angie believes Brad’s behavior aboard that private jet on Sept. 14, which triggered her filing for divorce, was so bad that the kids could be scarred for life without this extra professional help. Here’s hoping the couch is comfy! H 82 Star D E C E M B E R

Is Amy too big to pplayy Barbie? When e news broke that Amy Schumer had been tapped to bring Barbie to life on screen, Twitter trolls went wild, fat-shaming the bawdy blonde comedian. So the Trainwreck star hit back on Dec. 6, posting a bathing suit shot of herself on Instagram and noting that Barbie is an “evolving icon.” True that! If the original 1959 Barbie was human sized, she’d have a 36-inch bust and an 18-inch waist, but the doll’s dimensions got a more realistic redesign in the 1990s. Amy’s lengthy caption said, in part, “I say if I’m beautiful. I say if I’m strong. You will not determine my story.” Atta girl! H


The recently remodeled home boasts tons of marble and hardwood, but the original gates still bear scribbled messages to Elvis.

100!

Happy wife, happy life! Kirk credits his better half Anne, 97, with keeping him healthy and happy.

A Golden Couple Los Angeles, Dec. 6

What’s Kirk Douglas’ secret to surviving a century? “I was lucky enough to find my soulmate [wife Anne] 63 years ago,” the Oscar-winning actor revealed just days before turning 100. “I believe our wonderful marriage and our nightly ‘golden hour’ chats have helped me survive all things.” To mark the milestone, Kirk and Anna will celebrate with 200 of their closest family and friends, including Steven Spielberg and Don Rickles, at a party hosted by son Michael and his wife, Catherine ZetaJones. “My only job is to stay well and rested so I can show up and be charming,” Kirk joked. “And, of course, give a little ‘extemporaneous’ speech.” Pure class!
