ell, we know what two of Hollywood’s hottest couples did this winter to keep warm. As spring flowers are starting to bloom, so are the bellies of Eva Mendes and Blake Lively, who are both expecting their second bundles of joy! Former Gossip Girl star Blake, who welcomed daughter James with husband Ryan Reynolds in December 2014, tried to hide her stomach on the beach in Malibu while filming her shark thriller The Shallows on April 12. “She’s just begun her second trimester, and she’s definitely starting to show — she and Ryan are so excited,” tattles a friend. “They’d planned to start trying toward the end of filming, but it happened right away. They want a big family, so this definitely won’t be her last pregnancy.” Blake, 28, has admitted to a baby “addiction.” “I can’t imagine ever not having a baby,” she gushed. “I’d be an 80-year-old woman with a baby if I could.” And it seems fellow starlet Eva has caught baby fever, too.

There were a lot of dishy personal details on The Real Housewives of Potomac — but nothing about Katie’s 2009 quickie marriage in Arizona (below) to a longtime boy boyfriend.

EXCLUSIVE

HE first season of The Real Housewives of Potomac, Bravo’s latest addition to their flagship reality series franchise, has been a rousing success, with the lovely ladies of this wealthy Maryland suburb, in the shadow of Washington, D.C., engaging in their fair share of catfighting and mud-slinging. It seems, however, that the producers overlooked (or were unaware of) a stunning secret from star Kathryn “Katie” Rost’s past that might top any plot twist from any of the Housewives series. Gorgeous fashion model Katie, 36, is divorced from Dr. James Orsini, the father of her three young children, whom she married in 2011. He’s described on the show as her “first husband,” but that doesn’t appear to be the case: A source claims Katie previously had secretly wed an onand-off boyfriend named Xavier Eccleston — and Star has exclusively discovered a record of their September 2009 marriage in Arizona (see box, above). The source claims that Katie eventually got an annulment, and adds that Eccleston, now 38, is “bad news.” That’s quite the understatement. According to Maryland court records and news reports, Eccleston was arrested and charged with attempted murder, assault and burglary after shooting an acquaintance — who was left paralyzed and died seven years later — and stealing a large sum of money and marijuana during an Oct. 2001 home invasion. Eccleston eventually pled guilty to felony assault and weapons charges and served part of a 10-year prison term. Eccleston was later convicted on a charge of “conspiring to distribute powder and crack cocaine,” and was sentenced in Jan. 2013 to 17 years in prison; he’s currently incarcerated at Maryland’s Cumberland Federal Correctional Institution. A rep for Katie Rost declined to comment when contacted by Star. H


MILEY’S

SWEET GESTURE

THEY WANT IT THAT WAY!

HEART OF GOLD

BACKSTREETA BAD BET? Backstreet’s back, all right! Wile fans are a e freaking fre king over the Boys’ nine-show concert series in Las Vegas, bookers Live Nation aren’t so sure they want to extend that run into a full-blown residency. “Nick Carter and A.J. McLean ran their image into the ground, and they could be a huge liability,” says a source close to the music company. Only two weeks ago, Star reported A.J.’s humiliating affair with a 24-year-old fan, and earlier this year, a supposedly sober Nick was arrested after a drunken bar brawl in Key West, Fla. “There’s no way A.J.’s wife will let him hang out with fans, and that means no photo ops or meet-and-greets, which will hurt ticket sales. The rest of the guys are praying these two get their act together,” explains the industry insider. “If they wantt a shot at Vegas — and all the cash that comes with it — they better be on their best behavior.” H

BOYS BEHAVING BADLY!

HARRY THE HORRIBLE? BLE? Nobody’s gonna drag him down. One Direction hottie Harry Styles may be adept at charming his screaming fans, but he seems to have a little trouble minding his manners with non-Directioners. During a recent lunch in Los Angeles with friends, a witness saw the he 22-year-old ream a valet who failed to address him as “sir” — and he only got more boorish once seated at a table. “He was condescending to the waitress and went out of his way to make her uncomfortable by referring to her as ‘babe’ and ‘hun,’ ” tattled a fellow diner. “Overall, he was obnoxious. He chewed with his mouth open and banged his fists so hard on the table when he laughed that he spilled glasses, and then cackled hysterically. It was miserable sitting next to him.” H

Miley Cyrus may seem like she’s one bong hit away from total insanity, but the wacky star has quietly devoted herself to caring for her longtime Pilates instructor, Mari Winsor, 65, who was diagnosed with ALS, Lou Gehrig’s Disease, in 2014. “Miley has been so touched by Mari’s strength and dignity in dealing with the disease that she’s been helping Mari pay for her medical bills, to the tune of about $25,000 a month,” says a friend. “It’s Miley’s way of paying Mari back for her service and friendship.” The ailing fitness guru has whipped stars like Drew Barrymore, Emma Stone and Dakota Johnson into shape, but has played a special role in Miley’s life. “Miley will sit for hours with Mari, reading to her and watching movies,” explains the insider. “Mari is like a second mom to her.” H M AY 2 , 2 0 1 6

URNS out you can’t lilive ive a jet-set life on zero dollars a year — just ask LeAnn Rimes, who’s hoping a comeback tour will get her finances back in the black. And if it doesn’t, insiders believe it won’t just break the bank, but also her marriage to actor Eddie Cibrian! “LeAnn knows she’s neglected her career for too long,” admits a friend. “At this point she’s known more for her affair with Eddie than for being a singer.” Leanne’s last album, 2013’s Spitfire, was a flop, and Eddie’s last major job was a three-episode stint on the cable series Baby Daddy. “They’ve coasted off LeAnn’s savings since they got together five years ago, but they live large with a huge mansion and lots of trips,” adds the insider. “Plus, she helps support his two sons.” Now LeAnn is ready to hit the road for a big concert tour… but judging by the

chiilly reception she got at famed T chilly Texas honky-tonk Billy Bob’s on April 8, fans may not be lining up as she hopes. Not only was her concert sparsely attended, Texas radio personality Billy Mack complained that Rimes was arrogant toward the crowd, which included his father — who wrote LeAnn’s breakout hit, “Blue”! “Don’t crawl back to Texas with a Kardashian attitude, expecting Texas-size applause,” fumed the DJ in a Facebook post. “No need to wonder why she is a hasbeen in this industry.” With only two small shows scheduled this year, friends wonder if her dire financial straits will shatter her marriage to the 42-year-old Cibrian, who has grown accustomed to the A-list lifestyle, fueled by his wife’s nest egg. “Eddie married a rich girl on purpose,” says the pal.“So what happens when that’s no longer the case?” H

Nicholson is hitting the roof over her X-rated ambition. “T.J. is sickened by the idea,” admits the friend. “And when she suggested he be her costar, he just walked out.

A FIRST LOVE, A FAMILY ART While Peter Thomas Roth clinical skin care, hair care and beauty have been my passion and my grandparents’ history, fine jewelry has been my best-kept secret. After all, I practically grew up in my parents’ jewelry workshop in Manhattan. Since 1939, my father, and later my mother, brought to life the designs of many of the renowned artists, celebrities and impresarios who would call on them. I learned by watching them firsthand, and throughout my life their inspiration and expertise have remained steadfast with me.

Classic and elegant, it adorned a selection of the greatest masterpieces and objets d’arts as well as the details of some of the grandest rooms. For me it felt symbolic of luxury, power, romance and authority. Years later, I drew on its inspiration to create my timeless jewelry collection.

Megan & Brian’s

BREAKU BREAKUP UP

BABY Y

Which will the couple sign first: a birth certificate or the divorce papers?

S

URPRISE! Megan Fox revealed she’s pregnant with her third child while promoting her new movie, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, on April 11 at CinemaCon in Las Vegas. The only problem? Last August, Megan and Brian Austin Green announced they were splitting after five years of marriage. While friends and fans alike questioned who the father might be, the 29-year-old actress found humor in her predicament, captioning a collage of her former costars — Shia LaBeouf, Will Arnett and Jake Johnson — with “#NotTheFather.” Which leaves only one man: her soon-to-be ex-husband. “Of course Brian is the father,” dishes an insider close to the couple, who are already parents to sons Noah, 3 and Bodhi, 2. “Megan looks to be about four to five months along, and although she and Brian were separated, she was still living with him.” Court docs state the divorce is still pending, but could this unexpected blessing fix their broken family? “Breaking up wasn’t Brian’s idea in the first place,” reveals the insider. “He’s holding out hope that Megan will change

her mind and give their marriage another shot.” But, sources say, she isn’t budging. “Apart from the bonus night in question, Megan and Brian are more like roommates than husband and wife, and it’s been like that for a while,” says a source. Even when they were together, she liked to joke that Brian “[didn’t] get any intimacy” whatsoever. “Megan thinks Brian is a terrific hands-on father, but she doesn’t think they belong together,” says the source. “And I don’t think this baby is going to change that. As far as Megan is concerned, the divorce is 100 percent happening.” H Megan and Brian have remained amicable, even renting a house together in Bel-Air for their boys.

Miranda & Anderson

OUT OF TUNE

“Heartbreak is good fuel for country songs. And cheating,” Miranda Lambert has said. “Falling in love is awesome, but I’m never drawn to [writing] happy songs.” Still, a long weekend in the country spent penning sad songs about the breakdown of her marriage to Blake Shelton isn’t exactly what Miranda’s boyfriend, Anderson East, had in mind when he signed on as her writing partner. “Nobody does heartache quite like Miranda. Breakup ballads? Those are her bread and butter and exactly what country music fans are looking forward to decoding when her next album drops,” spills an industry insider close to the “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” singer, 32, who was none too pleased when Gwen Stefani stole her shtick on This Is What the Truth Feels Like. Nevertheless, Anderson, 27, is starting to wonder if Miranda really is over Blake. “He thought they’d record a few love songs, maybe even a duet,” says the source, “but she’d rather open up old scars about Blake instead.” H

It’s the end of the road for Kirsten Dunst and Garrett Hedlund. After four years of dating, datin the couple have gone their separate ways, although that won’t come as a surprise to Star readers, who learned of Kirsten’s secret meetups with Colin Farrell last week. wee “Everyone’s under the impression that Kirsten Kirst and Garrett simply wanted different things out ou of life,” says a source close to the actress, who’s hinted hin about wanting to start a family with her beau, 31, sooner rather than later. “They knew Garrett was dragging his heels, but if they found out how Colin figured into all this, they’d flip.” As of now, Kirsten, 33, has kept mum. “She refuses to talk about it,” says the pal. “I don’t think she wants anyone knowing about her and Colin — especially not Garrett.” A little late for that, though!

OURTNEY KARDASHIAN just can’t help herself. After hooking up with Justin Bieber in early December, sources say the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 36, has picked up right where she left off with the singer, 22. “There’s definitely an age gap there, but they have a lot of chemistry. Kourtney says Justin is the best lover ever,” says a source close to the cougar, who was last seen sneaking off with her cub at his Purpose afterparty at Warwick nightclub in Los Angeles on March 23. “Being around Justin makes Kourtney feel young. It’s refreshing when she spends all day chasing after a bunch of rambunctious kids.” Kourtney, of course, has three children — Mason, 6, Penelope, 3, and Reign, 1 — with ex Scott Disick. “Justin’s been over to Kourtney’s, but they do their best not to flaunt their fling in front of them,” dishes the pal. “She’s joked that Justin is great with her kids, certainly more playful and fun with them than Scott ever was.” Whatever do you mean!

Hollywood can’t seem to get enough of the Brits at the moment, and Jennifer Garner is no different. So when Ben Affleck asked the actress, 44, to move to England with their three children — Violet, 10, Seraphina, 7, and Samuel, 4 — while he films Justice League: Part One, it wasn’t as big of an ask as her ex might’ve expected. “Jen agreed to the arrangement for their kids’ sake of course, but she’s also excited to take her search for Mr. Right overseas,” reveals a pal, adding that the Alias alum has no plans to reconcile with Big Ben while abroad. “Jen’s a sucker for a British accent.” (Hey, what girl isn’t?) “She definitely likes tall, well-spoken and very handsome. Think Tom Hiddleston or Theo James, if he wasn’t already taken,” says the source. “That said, he doesn’t need to be famous.” Blimey! H

As Star previously reported, he had no problem flirting with a few gorgeous guests aat the couple’s annual White Party in 2008 — all al while Kyle was in the next room. “My heart breaks for her,” says the spy. “After everything Mauricio’s put Kyle through, he’s still not acting like a married man.” H

A SURPRISE PREGNANCY — AT AGE 48! — MAY HAVE SAVED JULIA ROBERTS AND DANNY MODER FROM THE BRINK OF DIVORCE. 34 Star M AY

2, 2016


I

T seemed like their marriage was a lost cause. Julia Roberts and Danny Moder hadn’t been seen together in months when they bought a second house across the street from their Malibu mansion. Rumors flew that the new property was for Danny to live in, so he could be close to their three children while separated from their mother. But against all odds, the couple’s relationship has made a complete 180-degree turn — thanks to a possible surprise pregnancy! Yes, according to sources close to the 48-year-old actress, Julia may be expecting a baby with her husband of 13 years, and the happy development has renewed their commitment to one another. “The buzz is that she’s about two months along at this point; it’s still very early,” says an insider. “Julia never in her wildest dreams would have imagined being pregnant at 48. She and Danny must be taking it as a sign that they were meant to save their marriage.” FROM BREAKUP TO MAKE UP As Star has previously reported, tensions between Julia and Danny, 47 — who already have three children, twins Hazel and Phinnaeus, 11, and Henry, 8 — have been building for years. Her nasty temper and his laissez-faire attitude sparked regular fights in their household, driving a wedge between the couple that seemed insurmountable. “For a long time, they were struggling to hold their family together,” the source says. “Honestly, many of their loved ones didn’t think they would make it.” Things got worse for the couple after Julia suffered a pair of family tragedies: She lost her half-sister, Nancy Motes, to suicide in Feb. 2014, and her beloved mother, Betty Lou Bredemus, to lung cancer a year later. On the day that Betty Lou passed away, Julia’s friends rallied around the grieving actress; Danny, meanwhile, appeared carefree as he was photographed surfing in Malibu the next day. And he didn’t accompany his wife to her mom’s May 2015 memorial, either. “The past two years have been really rough for Julia, and she didn’t think Danny gave her the support

THE ECOFRIENDLY FAMILY MANSION

Whispers intensified that the couple might be separating when Julia and Danny tried to buy the house across the street from their Malibu mansion in 2015. “They were sleeping in different bedrooms anyway, so when that other property became available, they tried to scoop it up for Danny to live in,” a source claims. But by the time the deal closed, in February 2016, Julia and Danny were on better terms — and now he has no intention of moving out. she needed,” the insider says. “Actually, he was very sympathetic and tried to help her, but Julia kept pushing him away. She was in so much pain she was lashing out, and unfortunately Danny was on the receiving end of it.” Eventually, the

source says, Danny started staying out of Julia’s way — “which only made her more angry. She must have felt like he’d abandoned her.” Things deteriorated rapidly after that — to the point where Julia allegedly kicked Danny out of their house during a blowout fight. “I heard she told him she wanted a divorce, and he said she’d never find anyone else who’d put up with her impossible mood swings,” the insider claims. “It got really ugly, and if Julia hadn’t kicked Danny out, he probably would have left on his own anyway. It really seemed like the beginning of the end for them both.” Though they kept their marital crisis quiet, friends and fans began to suspect something was wrong. The superstar actress and her cinematographer husband weren’t seen together in public at the end of 2015, and in February, Julia took the kids to Disneyland — without their dad. “The cracks in their marriage were evident at that point,” the source says. “But I heard they’d been to therapy and started trying to reconcile sometime after New Year’s.” Indeed, friends say that Julia and Danny made a last-ditch attempt to save their marriage in February — and that’s when insiders believe she got pregnant!

how she contributed to their issues,” says the insider. “She can be extremely difficult to live with: She loses her temper easily and lashes out when she’s hurt. She’s also incredibly jealous, thanks to her low self-esteem. Now that she’s focusing on the future again, Julia is trying to not be so hard on Danny and constantly take out her anger on him.”

Tensions between the couple were apparent last year, when Julia lost her mother, Betty Lou, to cancer. While her friends comforted her, Danny went surfing — and later skipped the funeral. “It says a lot about the state of their marriage,” an insider said at the time. “He should have been there for her.” Danny, too, has been doing his part to make sure his wife feels appreciated. “He’s been waiting on Julia hand and foot,” the insider reveals. “You wouldn’t

believe this is the same couple they were even two months ago!” And they’re making a concerted effort to keep their relationship running smoothly for the foreseeable future. “They’re both seeing a therapist to help them communicate more effectively, and it’s made a world of difference,” the source says. “Now, when Julia gets angry, she takes a moment to calm down before expressing her feelings. Their house is so much more relaxed because of it. I’m sure even the children have noticed a change in their parents; everyone seems much happier these days.” As for Julia — whose next movie is called, appropriately enough, Mother’s Day — friends say she’s focused on staying healthy and stress-free for the sake of her growing family. “I’m sure she must be nervous about having a baby at her age, and she’s been careful to do everything her doctor tells her,” the insider notes. “It’s taken a separation and this new baby to make Julia understand what a good father and husband Danny really is,” the source adds. “She’s throwing herself wholeheartedly into their relationship now. It may have come as a complete surprise to them, but this baby could save their marriage!” H

Anna & Ch r i s BUSY BOY CHRIS PRATT IS LEAVING WIFE ANNA FARIS HOME ALONE A LOT — WITH LITTLE TO DO BUT FRET OVER HIS BOND WITH COSTAR JENNIFER LAWRENCE. Starved For Attention?

“Anna has gotten into great shape in her attempt to be the perfect A-lister’s wife,” says an insider, “but it’s clear she’s lonely.”

“Anna won’t admit how threatened she is by Chris’ costars.” — a friend tells Star 38 Star M AY

HRIS PRATT beamed beside costar Jennifer Lawrence while the pair hyped their upcoming movie, Passengers, on April 12. And the Las Vegas promo op was just one of several recent events Chris has attended without wife Anna Faris. Whether it’s for awards shows or important holidays, Anna and Chris are rarely in the same town, much less the same room, these days — and loved ones fear the worst. “Things have become really tense between Chris and Anna,” an insider tells Star. “They’re barely communicating.” With Chris’ popularity soaring and Anna’s fading, the gulf is only expected to grow. And his bond with his sexy, single costar isn’t making things any better.

ALWAYS APART Chris, 36, had a hectic schedule this month, including a stop in L.A. on April 10 to accept the MTV Movie Award for Best Action performance — without Anna, 39. Though he mentioned her briefly in his acceptance speech, the tacked-on “And of course, my wife, Anna Faris” seemed strange to those who know the couple. “Normally Chris is super lovey-dovey and can’t gush about Anna enough,” notes the source. “His offhand thanks was just plain weird.” Even weirder, over Easter, Anna was in Hawaii with her family and the couple’s 3-year-old son, Jack, while Chris celebrated by erecting a giant cross thousands of miles away on the mainland. “Chris and Anna are pretty religious, so to be apart on a major holiday was a huge red flag to their friends and family,” the insider says. DIFFERENT DESIRES Anna and Chris, who met in 2007, aren’t the same people they were when they wed in 2009. She was hot property, appearing in a slew of popular comedies, but now, aside from the sitcom Mom, Anna’s not doing much. Chris, meanwhile, has two blockbusters out


ATE LIVES E this year and two more about to start, including the Jurassic World sequel. “Throughout much of their relationship she was the more famous, successful one, but suddenly he’s an international A-lister,” says the source. “Their roles have reversed, he’s working nonstop and it’s taking a toll on their marriage.” Chris has gone on record about his passion for acting, saying, “I am doing what I love. I’m having fun.” Yet Anna recently revealed that she yearns for a large family and would “love to” have more kids. So she can’t be pleased by her husband’s frequent absences — or his chemistry with costar Jennifer, 25. After Star first reported that Chris and Jennifer had hit if off while working on Passengers, Anna admitted that she was “stung” by the rumors that the costars were getting close. And although reps for the couple deny they’re having problems, the insider says Anna is worried indeed. “She feels so threatened, she told Chris she wants him to stay in a different hotel from Jen when they do the Passengers press tour,” the source claims. Sadly, Anna’s fears are beginning to show. “She hardly eats and de-stresses with wine. Chris is increasingly frustrated with her emotional state, and the whole thing is a mess!” H

OYAL couple the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, better known to us commoners as Will and Kate, embarked on a visit to India and the isolated Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan on April 10. Their week-long whistle-stop tour took them from the fabulous Taj Mahal to the impoverished sections of Mumbai. It enabled them to see the most stunning sights, get up close and personal with wildlife and join in on local activities. Of course, they hobnobbed with bigwigs too, such as Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Bhutan’s Dragon King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck.

WARDROBE WHIRLWIND Though Kensington Palace billed it as an official visit focusing on “young people, sport, entrepreneurship, Indian efforts to relieve urban poverty, the creative arts and rural life,” it was more like a second honeymoon for the diplomatic duo. And the world fell in love with Kate’s new look! Her numerous costume changes included everything from her favorite designer, Alexander McQueen, to Mumbai-based designer Anita Dongre to a $71 dress by Glamorous U.K. The trip gave Kate a chance to swap the dull duds that have earned her the nickname “Duchess of Drab” and wear comfier, colorful, more casual clothes — while still looking regal and ravishing. Star brings you some of their most memorable moments. H

t u O Tag WWE superstars Nikki and Brie Bella have left the ring to body-slam the next stages of their careers with Twin Magic!

N

IKKI and Brie Bella are twin sisters who changed the face — and body — of pro wrestling. Throughout their 10-year career in the WWE, the superfly Bella Twins were the most successful female tandem in pro-wrestling history. That’s thanks to the brunette beauties’ highflying athletic skills, sexy bikini bods and tough-yet-fun-loving personalities. It also made them breakout stars in E!’s hit reality series Total Divas. So when Brie officially retired at WrestleMania in Dallas last month, the 103,000 screaming fans in attendance and millions more at home were shocked. But, it turns out, things are just getting started for the twins.

THE END OF AN ERA Brie hung up her two-piece to start a family, something she wants desperately. “I have insane baby fever. It’s no joke!” Brie tells Star. “I feel like now my husband [retired wrestler Bryan Danielson a.k.a. Daniel Bryan] and I can both enjoy the next chapter of our life together. We’re on cloud nine!” Nikki joined Brie in the ring for her sister’s goodbye but couldn’t do much wrestling as she’s rehabbing her neck, which she broke last year. 56 Star M AY

Total Bellas

Premiering on E! this fall.

Years of “wear and tear” on her body forced Nikki to undergo surgery in January: “I basically have a broken neck, a pretty bad herniated disk.”


“Leave it to me to walk down the ramp in a neck brace,” laughs Nikki. “I’m not a crier, but when I realized I was never going to share this ring with my sister again, I just lost it.” Despite being at a career crossroads at only 32, the twins are thrilled about how they’ve impacted pro wrestling. “I wanted to pave the way for women and what we’ve done to accomplish that makes me feel so happy,” says Nikki. “Now female wrestlers are called ‘Superstars’ instead of ‘Divas’, and the women are equal to the men. It makes it all worth it.” But it’s not like the sisters will be suplexing into the sunset. They’re both WWE ambassadors, and Nikki is determined to return to the ring, at least part-time, when her neck heals. And not only will they continue to star in Total Divas, they’ll be front and center in their own new spin-off premiering in October: Total Bellas.

As for Brie, she thinks the fans deserve to follow the next stage of her life. “My fans watched when Bryan and I started dating, when he proposed and when we got married,” she says. “I feel in my heart that they deserve to see my road to motherhood and what kind of mom I’ll become. The Bella army deserves it!”

RINGS OUTSIDE THE RING? Viewers will also get a peek into the twins’ new business venture, an underwear company they’re launching with fashion mogul Daymond John called Birdiebee. “It’s panties with a purpose, a pay-it-forward brand showcasing women around the world who are empowering other women,” says Brie. “We are so excited about it finally launching because we really feel like it will help unify women around the world.” And while Brie and Bryan try to add a baby to their brood, Nikki is inching SHOW & TELL down the aisle with her boyfriend “We filmed up until WrestleMania.You’ll since 2012, WWE superstar and actor see my surgery, a time when my whole John Cena. “John had a tough time family stayed at our house and when my committing to marriage but he’s opened mom, Kathy, who we all call Mamma up to the thought of it, and even said Bella, married our old boss, WWE’s he wants to get married, which is a Johnny Ace [John Laurinaitis],” Nikki big deal,” says Nikki. “He still hasn’t tells Star. “It’s crazy. It’s a show about proposed, but I’m a hopeful girl. He’s how this wacky family has become like put a diamond around my neck, I’m just wrestling royalty.” waiting for it around my finger!” H

HITS & MISSUS: Nikki has been vocal about her desire to marry beau John Cena, but the hunky wrestler has yet to get down on one knee.

BABY TIME! Brie says she and her ex-wrestler hubby are ready to start a team of their own.

REVIEWS BY M

The Meddler

Stars Susan Sarandon, Rose Byrne, J.K. Simmons Story Sarandon plays Marnie, a recent widow who moves from New Jersey to be near her daughter, Lori (Byrne), a TV writer in Los Angeles. Without meaning to — and with no one else to focus on — Marnie winds up smothering the single Lori with attention even as Lori struggles to finish writing a new pilot. With Lori too busy with work to have much time for Marnie, Marnie shifts her attention to Lori’s friends, using them as surrogates and, in turn, becoming a surrogate mom. She also, reluctantly, begins a dalliance with a man her own age (Oscar winner Simmons). It’s a heartfelt comedy about social awkwardness (especially as created by those with boundary issues) that’s built around the warm, sometimes jangled performance by Sarandon. She’s touching as a woman who fills her time with the lives of others to put off dealing with her own situation. It’s smart, funny and surprisingly moving. Verdict Parents and their adult children will identify — and laugh.

OVIES M OV A Hologram for the King Elvis & Nixon

Stars Michael Shannon, Kevin Spacey Story If you’ve never seen the famous image upon which this film is based, first Google “Elvis and Nixon” — take a good look at the photo and then watch this wonderfully weird and entertaining movie. Shannon plays Elvis Presley who, in 1970, shows up at the White House unannounced, asking to see President Richard Nixon (Spacey). Presley’s goal: to be named a “federal agent at large” so he can infiltrate the drug culture — which he seriously believes he can do. Shannon has an oddly light touch as the mannerly Elvis, bringing an unpredictable physicality to surprising moments. Spacey is dead-on as Nixon: alternately frustrated and fascinated by the king of rock ’n’ roll. While the film stumbles in a couple moments, it’s a witty imagining of how a famous — and famously incongruous — photograph came to be. Verdict A bizarrely engaging bit of historical speculation.

58 Star M AY

2, 2016

Stars Tom Hanks, Sarita Choudhury Story This brisk but lightweight film is based on a novel by Dave Eggers. Hanks plays Alan Clay, a struggling American marketing executive who travels to Saudi Arabia to pitch a new holographic conferencing system to a sheik. Despite the presence of ever-likable Hanks, the film never gains momentum. It’s more of a tale about a man figuring out how to live the rest of his life than a culture-clash comedy. Hanks has nice chemistry with Choudhury (as a doctor who helps him), but the whole thing feels a little pale and underdeveloped. Verdict Hanks, but no thanks.

12 Monkeys Premieres Monday, April 18, at 9PM on Syfy It’s season 2 of the series based on the 1995 Bruce Willis film. But it’s difficult to understand why it was renewed, as it’s even harder this time around to imagine anyone following the many plot threads. Essentially, James Cole (Aaron Stanford) has been sent from the future back to the present to stop a radical group from unleashing a virus that will wipe out 90 percent of the population. As the second season starts, he’s tracked down a source of the future plague, but he’s also dealing with other time travelers who have different agendas. There’s so much bouncing back and forth in time that, like the characters, you rapidly lose track and stop caring. Time travel is a great concept, but you have to make more of it than this mishmash of uncompelling plots. Verdict Even if you watched the whole first season, you’ll be unlikely to stick around for the second.

Veep Premieres Sunday, April 24, at 10:30PM on HBO As the fifth season kicks off, President Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) is trapped in limbo: Her campaign for a full term results in a tie in the Electoral College. Then Nevada proves so close that an automatic recall could be triggered — it’s time to bring out the brass knuckles to secure a clean win. This hilariously raunchy, even meanspirited comedy has the sharpest political edge on TV, mocking the self-importance and sheer cynicism of political insiders. Louis-Dreyfus has the comic flexibility to be both a mean girl and the target of nasty jokes (her problems with a zit in the season’s first episode will have you howling). Emmy winner Tony Hale, as her “body” man, Gary, steals his share of scenes with comic underplaying. Verdict Four more years!

Paint A Picture

H The goal is to use every number from 1 to 9 without repeating that number in any column across, row down or within any 3x3 block.

Answer all seven questions — and use the circled letters to unscramble the Super-7 Challenge solution. Answers below.

1. What piece of jewelry do you wear most often? (a) Elegant watch (b) Chain with charm or many. 2. Your favorite kind of art? (a) Still lives – modern or old masters (b) Lithographs in muted and bold colors. 3. When buying luggage, you choose: (a) Copy of famous designers (b) Leather in your favorite color. 4. Choice for a night out with friends? (a) Classy restaurant (b) A fave diner followed by bowling or karaoke. 5. Car colors that appeal to you are: (a) Brown or beige (b) Black or white. 6. How do you usually relax when watching T.V. or reading? (a) A plush recliner (b) On the couch or bed. 7. Where do you like shopping for food? (a) Specialty shops (b) Supermarkets. SCORING MOSTLY A’s: You’re concerned about top quality rather than quantity. You can spot a trend (clothes or foods) before most people notice. You have a good eye for home decor and for choosing styles that complement. You know what stands out and is admired. MOSTLY B’s: You like simplicity and ways to make life easier. You don’t take yourself seriously and that uninhibited attitude is revealed in your personal tastes. You never feel overwhelmed by things that you need to get done. Your motto could be, “It is what it is” because you just don’t sweat the small stuff!

Find the words from the puzzle list. They can be read up, down, backwards, across or diagonally.

Questions

“Well, I found Katy Perry and I found her videos and... if it’s all right to say, I wasn’t happy with any of it,” says Sister Rita Callana. “I thought, is that a way to make money?”

Is Katy moving into a convent? By the Grace of God! Two members of the Sisters of the Most Holy and Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary went to court last May to stop Katy Perry from purchasing a former convent in the Los Feliz neighborhood of L.A. The sisters claimed that Archbishop Jose H. Gomez had no right to sell the eight-acre estate to the singer, when they had already accepted an offer from restaurateur Dana Hollister. And after a year of counting rosary beads, the five remaining nuns, ranging in age from 77 to 88, have finally received a ruling. On April 13, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Stephanie Bowick ruled against them, which means Katy can now purchase the property for $14.5 million... as long as she can obtain approval from the Vatican. Heaven only knows that’s going to be a hard sell! H

FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE!

Are Egor and Lindsay really engaged? Rumors began to circulate that Lindsay Lohan was engaged to Russian business heir Egor Tarabasov after the actress was photographed sporting a 5-carat oval emerald ring at the Duran Duran concert, where she was joined by her parents, Michael and Dina, and her sister Ali, at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on April 12. “This story is untrue and holds no merit,” revealed Lindsay’s rep, and Star’s own sources confirm his statement. “The large emerald ring was just a gift,” explains an insider. “Lindsay is the kind of girl who’s going to want a huge diamond, so until you see a rock to rival Elizabeth Taylor’s on that finger, don’t believe the hype.” H 70 Star M AY

Los Angeles, April 13

The Weeknd & Bella Hadid

The shot clock has run out on Kobe Bryant’s storied career. The legendary Los Angeles Laker took to the court one last time in front of a sold-out Staples Center to play his final game as a professional basketball player — and all of Tinseltown came out to say goodbye (see sidebar). “Man, I can’t believe how fast 20 years went by,” Kobe told the crowd after a 101–96 victory against the Utah Jazz.“You can’t write something better than this. I appreciate the journey we have been on. There have been a few ups and downs, but the most important part is that we all stayed together. I can’t believe it has come to an end. What can I say? Mamba out.”
