GUARD DUTY “He likes to protect me, which I haven’t had before — someone looking out for me almost before himself,” Khloé, who was previously wed to fellow NBA star Lamar Odom, says of Tristan.
HLOÉ Kardashian is so head over heels for her boyfriend, Cleveland Cavaliers pro-basketball star Tristan Thompson, that she dropped a not-verysubtle hint to her lover in a high-profile magazine interview: Propose already! “[I’ve] never been in this type of love,” Khloé, 32, gushed to England’s ES Magazine, adding that as soon as they met on a blind date in August, “we both felt this strong energy. I was like, ‘Oh, this is such a nice, normal man’ — the normalcy is what I was craving.” And as to the all-important question of whether she’d accept an offer of marriage from her 26-year-old ballin’ beau, Khloé stated unequivocally: “Yes I would!” She breathlessly added: “I’m a Christian; he’s a believer in God and that’s important to me. Tristan’s morals and ethics are everything I’ve wanted and need in my life.” Given that last statement, says a source, “Hearing any Kardashian discuss morals and ethics is jarring, to say the least. And the fact that Tristan’s previous girlfriend was six months pregnant with their child [model Jordan Craig gave birth to their son in December] when he began dating Khloé is certainly interesting.” Should Tristan pop the question, Khloé also made it known what their next step would be. “I would love to have a family,” she admitted, unsurprisingly. “We’ve talked about it... I know for a fact that he would be an impeccable father.” H

THE TALE OF THE TAPES!
NEW DIVORCEE DRAMA
DOMESTIC BLITZ: Mel has also obtained a restraining order against her longtime nanny, Lorraine Gilles.
THE FORMER SPICE GIRL CLAIMS HER EX HUSBAND AND FORMER NANNY ARE TRYING TO BLACKMAIL HER.
HE domestic drama seems far from over for Mel B. After accusing her soon-to-be exhusband Stephen Belafonte of cheating and physical abuse, the Spice Girl has now obtained a restraining order against her former nanny, Lorraine Gilles, accusing both her and Stephen of extortion. Lorraine was once a sympathetic figure in this sad saga: Mel alleged in court documents that her violent ex forced Lorraine to have an abortion when she became pregnant after a threesome with Mel, one of many

group encounters he supposedly coerced his famous wife into, then secretly filmed to use as leverage against her. But now, the pop star says her servant and her spouse are in collusion. After Mel worked up the courage to fire Lorraine in early 2015, a livid Stephen threatened to release the sex tapes unless Mel rehired Lorraine — with a raise — and the two are still holding the videos ransom. Now, the fed-up mom of two is fighting back. After nabbing a court order, Mel and her lawyers — along
with a police escort — turned up at Public Storage in Los Angeles to gain access to Lorraine’s storage locker. Mel claimed that Lorraine has been hiding over a dozen boxes of Spice Girls memorabilia and a slew of X-rated tapes starring the “Wannabe” singer — but her search came up empty-handed. “Mel is determined to find and destroy those tapes; she’s not going to let Stephen or Lorraine intimidate her anymore,” shares a friend. “She’s found her strength and she’s taking her life back. She refuses to live in fear.” H
HOOCH & POOCH HABIT It’s 5 o’clock somewhere… and that somewhere is the street! Sources working with Jennifer Lawrence on the Budapest set of her new flick Red Sparrow tell Star that the actress unwinds each day with a drink and a long walk with her pup — at the same time. “Every evening she puts Pippi’s leash on and strolls over to the park with a glass of red wine,” chuckled a witness. “She’s just as friendly as can be, chatting up the locals while sipping away.” Enjoy those open container laws while you can, Jen!

THE ROCK REELING OVER SMUTTY JOKES
The stars of the upcoming Baywatch flick are worried that their big-budget remake will be dead in the water thanks to its tidal wave of dirty gags. “Zac [Efron] saw how raunchy the final version was and went into a tailspin,” says an insider. “He’s counting on this movie to be his comeback, but it’s so over-the-top that it could easily get banned in huge markets like China and Japan.” But producer Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is the one with the most to lose should the crass comedy sink like a stone. “Dwayne just inked a movie deal with Disney, and they won’t be thrilled that his new movie is two hours of crotch shots, bouncing boobs and crude jokes,” adds the source. “He was all for pushing the envelope, but now he’s frantically trying to scale it back in the editing room.” H
Transgender reality star Caitlyn Jenner has crowed that her beloved mother, Esther, was nothing but supportive when she ditched Bruce to become Cait, but the 90-year-old was actually the last to know that her beloved son had officially become her daughter. In fact, Star broke the news to the Jenner family matriarch that Caitlyn had undergone gender reassignment surgery in January. “I don’t know anything about what you are talking about,” said the baffled Mrs. Jenner. “I have no idea.” Sadly, journalists who previewed Caitlyn’s memoir learned of the dramatic procedures before her own mother did. “The surgery was a success, and I feel not only wonderful but liberated,” Caitlyn wrote in The Secrets of My Life, out April 25. “I wanted to have all the right parts.” Someone may want to double up on Mother’s Day bouquets!

Just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean it’s not there.
Although it’s more common in older women, ovarian cancer affects women of all ages, even in their 20s. There is no early detection test, and symptoms can be subtle. But while you can’t see it, you can take steps to get ahead of it by knowing your risk factors. Family history of cancer and presence of gene mutations like BRCA are risk factors, so talk to your family and your doctor. This information makes you less likely to ignore vague signs that could indicate disease. Meanwhile, promising collaborative research will continue to shed light on new advances in diagnosis and treatment of ovarian cancer.

BREAKS BRE FREE Jackson and her billionaire businessman were not “Unbreakable” after all.
Husband Wissam Al Mana
T’S Janet… Miss Jackson if you’re nasty! Three months after welcoming son Eissa in January, Janet Jackson and her husband, Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Mana, have quietly separated. “Janet felt so stifled and suffocated,” reveals a source, who suspects the couple’s cultural differences and co-parenting styles led to their sudden split. “She just couldn’t take it anymore.” Raised a Jehovah’s Witness, the pop star sex symbol, 50, reportedly converted to Islam to please Wissam, 42, after they wed in 2012. “Janet tried her best to be an obedient wife,” says the pal. “She covered up from head to toe and wore head scarves.” But her isolation only intensified once they moved to London. Thousands of miles away from her family, “Janet began to feel like a trophy who was to be seen but not heard,” says the source. “She wasn’t even allowed to go out in public alone during her pregnancy!” And yet, it was the birth of her son that empowered Janet to reclaim her independence. When her mom, Katherine, an alleged victim of elder abuse at the hands of her nephew Trent, arrived for a two-month visit in February, “Janet was shocked at how little Wissam seemed to care about her well-being, and she was also upset with herself,” says the pal. “Janet said this never would’ve happened if she had been in L.A.” A few weeks after Katherine’s March 30 departure, moving trucks were spotted outside the couple’s London home. Per reports, Janet and Wissam’s prenuptial agreement states that the singer would be entitled to $100 million if they stayed married for five years — which they did — and another $100 million if they had a child. “But it was never about the money,” the source insists. “Janet just wants her life back.” And she’s almost there. On April 12, the singer took her son for a spin in a London park. “Janet pointed out the squirrels and the birds in the trees to Eissa,” says a spy. “She looked so happy and at ease, strolling in the sunshine.” That’s the way love goes...

His pants were practically falling off of him, and you could see his bony shoulders poking through.” Even more dismaying: Just one week earlier, Brad had been photographed on
his way to an L.A. studio looking frighteningly gaunt, hollow-cheeked and frail. The reason for his disturbing deterioration? Sources say his friends fear that his bitter, ongoing divorce is taking a serious toll on both his physical and mental health. “It’s been incredibly wearying and destructive for him,” claims an insider. “First there was the abuse allegations, then the fights over visitation with the children and now a custody war with seemingly no end in sight.

I believe Brad is in a very bad place right now — and even more scary, it seems as if he’s refusing to reach out for help.” WEIGHTY ISSUES Sources claim that Brad, 53, is down to a mere 147 pounds — a drastic drop from his prime, when he once carried 185 pounds on his muscled, 5-foot-11 frame. Now his condition has led some friends to worry that he may even have developed an eating disorder due to the stress. “Brad started to lose weight right after the split, which was perfectly understandable, but in my opinion, he has only gotten worse as time goes by,” claims the insider. “This divorce seems to be killing him. Brad feels terrible, and it seems like he’s finding it hard even to eat normally. Everyone’s worried that subconsciously he’s trying to punish himself for failing at his marriage.” Indeed, New York–based therapist Dr. Gilda Carle (who has not treated
EVER SINCE ANGIE FILED FOR DIVORCE, BRAD SEEMS TO BE DISAPPEARING BEFORE OUR EYES.
Just two months after the split, he already appeared wan and haggard at a movie screening with pal Julia Roberts in L.A.
Though still surprisingly thin, Brad cleaned up nicely when he surprised fans by presenting at the Golden Globes in Beverly Hills.
Friends were totally taken aback when Brad, in a rare public sighting in L.A. on March 30, was so scarily skinny that he seemed skeletal.
A THAW SPOT FOR BRANGIE? A new report claims that Angelina has her eye on buying the fabulous, $25 million Cecil B. DeMille estate (left) — the historic home of the legendary film director — situated in a private community within L.A.’s Los Feliz neighborhood. Built in 1913, the home features six bedrooms and 10 bathrooms — perfect for Angie and her six kids. The house is also just a 20-minute drive from Brad’s Hollywood Hills home. On the heels of reports that Brad secretly visited Angelina and the children when they were in Cambodia in February, could it be that the divorcing duo are working on burying the hatchet?
SURPRISING SUPPORT Brad’s physical decline is so alarming, sources say, that even his estranged ex Angie has taken notice and is urging him to seek help. “She can’t be blind to the anguish Brad is going through, and I heard that she’s so concerned she even agreed to back down on her custody fight and try to work things out more amicably behind closed doors,” claims a source. Adds the insider: “They had a few brief conversations, and at first it was just about the kids, but then she recently started asking Brad about his health. I believe Angie fears he’s caught in a dangerous downward spiral, and she wants to do everything she can to get him to recognize that and start taking better care of himself. “As hurtful as her divorce filing and accusations against Brad have been, when all is said and done, Angie is the mother of their six kids and was his lover for 12 years. No matter what has gone on between them, Angie still cares deeply for Brad and she’s as concerned for his well-beingg as everyone y else.”H
Angie brought her brood (from left, Pax, Knox, Vivienne, Maddox, Zahara and Shiloh) to the premiere of her film First They Killed My Father in Cambodia in February. Brad) tells Star, “A very public divorce like this one can be so devastating that people stop eating, which could be what Brad’s experiencing right now. Everything in his world has been upended, and he’s dealing with a lot of loss. Developing an eating disorder would not be unusual, because losing the weight is a symbol for losing his family.” Adds Dr. Jenn Mann, an L.A.-based psychotherapist (who also hasn’t treated Brad): “I’m sure he’s struggling with some feelings of depression and anxiety, which often make people either overeat or not eat at all — it’s actually called ‘divorce weight.’” WIRED UP Making matters worse, “Brad’s not sleeping,” claims the insider. “He’s not getting the rest he needs to stay strong and focused in order to deal with the divorce and his day-to-day business.
He paces around and talks on the phone constantly — to his lawyers, his agent and people at his production company. It’s taking a toll on him; he’s not getting enough shut-eye, and it shows.” Such hyperactive behavior, adds Dr. Mann, can be a way to try to avoid painful feelings — and the insider agrees those could be exactly what Brad is trying to cope with. “I think being separated from the children and not being able to visit them as often as he’d like is the single hardest thing for Brad. He hasn’t even been seen with the kids since the split— and that was seven months ago! I would imagine that he must feel like they’ve just been torn away.”
B is one of the producers behind Brad tthe new adventure flick The Lost City of Z — and his recent canoodling with the film’s gorgeous star, Sienna Miller, produced a ton of whispers! While at a private party for the movie’s L.A. release, a source described “serious flirting” between Brad and Sienna, 35, adding: “They were talking to each other all night.” Rumors of a romantic connection between the duo first surfaced while the movie was being filmed in 2015 — with Sienna calling them “insane!”

Keanu Reeves LIFE OF LOSS
There’s real despair behind the Sad Keanu meme: The star has endured a litany of pain, starting when his dad, Samuel, abandoned the family when he was a toddler. (Keanu was 13 when he last saw Sam, who has been arrested for selling heroin.) In 1993, his best friend, River Phoenix, died of an overdose. Then, in 1999, the baby he was expecting with girlfriend Jennifer Syme was stillborn at 8 months. Two years later, Jen died in a car crash.

A DAD’S DESPERATE ACT
Who’d have guessed that Spider-Man’s father was a real-life bank robber! In the 1980s, Tobey Maguire’s dad, Vincent, found himself broke and with three mouths to feed, after his sister died and left him in charge of her two kids. So, the 38-year-old cook came up with a half-baked scheme: He’d rob the bank across the street from his house, in broad daylight and with no disguise. He was arrested within an hour. Luckily, because it was his first offense and he didn’t use a weapon, he only served two years behind bars.
After the robbery, Tobey reportedly “walked around like a zombie for days.”
All is forgiven: “Tobey knew his dad was a good man who made a big mistake,” says a source.
BORN BEHIND BARS
She shot to fame as spoiled prep schooler Blair Waldorf, but Leighton Meester’s real-life childhood was far from glamorous. The Gossip Girl star was born in a prison halfway house, where her mom, Connie, was serving time on drug-smuggling charges. Her father, grandfather and aunt, also part of the illegal operation, were serving federal prison sentences at the time as well. After Leighton’s birth, Connie spent another 16 months in jail before reuniting with her daughter and fellow family felons in Florida.

She became a country superstar, but back in 1987, Shania Twain put her rising career on hold to care for her three younger siblings after their parents were killed in a car crash. In 2009, she experienced a different type of loss when she discovered her husband of 14 years, Mutt Lange, was having an affair with her best friend. Since learning of his betrayal, Shania says she developed dysphonia, a physical and physiological ailment that doesn’t allow her to sing properly.
Kelsey Grammer HISTORY S OF HEARTACHE At 62 years old, Kelsey Grammer has experienced enough tragedy for several lifetimes. When he was 13, his father Frank was shot to death by a deranged man outside his home. Seven years later, in 1975, his younger sister Karen, 18 at the time, was abducted and raped by four men, with one of them, Freddie Lee Glenn, stabbing her to death; Kelsey had to identify her body. Incredibly, still more tragedy was yet to come: In 1980, his twin half-brothers died in a scuba-diving accident. M AY 1 , 2 0 1 7

Ashton Kutcher’s dating history has made plenty of headlines, but one that’s often forgotten is the murder of his former girlfriend, Ashley Ellerin. In 2001, the aspiring model was stabbed to death inside her home by serial killer Michael Gargiulo. When Ashton arrived to Ashley’s Hollywood bungalow that night, no one answered the door. Peering inside, the actor told detectives the next day, he saw what he believed to be spilled red wine. In fact, it was a pool of Ashley’s blood.

Ashley’s killer had been working as a local handyman. He stabbed the 22-yearold 35 times.
Matthew Broderick THE ROAD TO RUIN Just a year after starring in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Matthew Broderick was part of a tragedy that threatened to derail his career. On Aug. 5, 1987, the rising star, then 25, was vacationing in Northern Ireland with then-girlfriend Jennifer Grey when he inexplicably veered their car into the wrong lane. He slammed head-on into a Volvo, killing Margaret Doherty and her daughter Anna Gallagher instantly. Matthew, who had not been drinking, spent a month recovering in the hospital and was hit with a fine for reckless driving. He’s admitted he’s still haunted by the accident: “It was extremely difficult coming to grips with what happened.”

As a child, the star lived in abject poverty, staying with her parents and five siblings in a series of dilapidated condemned buildings, without heat or electricity. And although Davis “never for a moment” doubted her father Dan’s love, he was an alcoholic who beat her mother, Mae Alice.

MOM’S THE WORD
At 37 years old, Jack Nicholson was shocked to learn that the woman he grew up believing was his mother was actually his grandmother — and his “sister,” June, was his mom! The story was uncovered and relayed to him by Time magazine researchers, and Jack had to confirm the details with his aunt Lorraine (whom he’d thought all along to be his other sister), because his mom and grandmother had long since died. Seems June was just a teen when she gave birth to Jack in 1937, and her parents thought it would be best to raise him as their son. On finding out, Jack said it was “a pretty dramatic event, but it wasn’t what I’d call traumatizing... I was pretty well psychologically formed.”
Jack only found out his real family history in 1974.
BEREFT OVER BROTHER
“You never get over it, you just get used to it,” Mark Ruffalo has said of the loss of his little brother, Scott, a well-known hairdresser who was shot in the head inside his Beverly Hills home on Dec. 1, 2008. A key witness turned person of interest, Shaha Adham, was in the house at the time and initially claimed that Scott had shot himself in a game of Russian roulette. She later died of a drug overdose, and the case remains unsolved.
Mark said he took his role in 2010’s The Kids Are All Right because it reminded him of Scott.
Charlize Theron A SHOT IN THE DARK Charlize Theron has long been an advocate for gun control, a cause close to her heart. When she was just 15, the South African stunner witnessed her mother shoot her alcoholic father dead after he came home drunk, flashing his gun and threatening to kill the women. When he fired the weapon into Charlize’s room, her mother grabbed her own firearm, killing her husband. She was never charged with a crime. “I know what happened,” the actress has said of that fateful night. “If my daughter was in the same situation, I would do the same thing.”

Charles was reportedly hired by a drug dealer who didn’t want the judge presiding over his upcoming trial.

“Obviously, Jen will always have her father’s well-being at heart.” — a source tells Star
Da D Issu A
MONEY MATTERS Jen’s father, David (seen here recently near his home in the L.A. suburbs), has admitted to spending “hundreds of thousands” of dollars on Scientology courses. Now a source claims David doesn’t have the funds to continue.
S one of the biggest superstars in the world, Jennifer Lopez has enjoyed spectacular success as a singer, actress and dancer. Over the years, she has often praised her mother, Guadalupe, for encouraging and nurturing her showbiz ambitions from the start, describing her as “the light inside me.” By contrast, little is known about Jennifer’s father, David Lopez, who has remained largely in the shadows. But now, Star has learned that David is a longtime member of the controversial Church of Scientology. And in an exclusive interview, he finally opens up about his beliefs — while still staying on the down-low about daughter J.Lo and the state of their relationship.
PULLED IN David, 72, a Puerto Rican native who worked the night shift at an insurance ffirm in New York City before becomiing a computer technician, became iintrigued by Scientology 30 years ago aafter reading founder L. Ron Hubbard’s book Dianetics. “That was my stepping b stone,” he recalls. “I started taking little st ccourses and doing what I could to get up the ladder.” The religion holds that peoth ple have suppressed powers that can be p

CAUGHT IN THE MIDDLE

regained by “going clear,” or getting rid of bad behaviors — and at first, David found the doctrine “kind of scary… I had no knowledge of the processes [and] how you can go clear.” After a while, “the fear went away and curiosity set in,” he explains. “I just wanted to do it for myself, get more personal power. I achieved that condition of power. It took a long time.” But Scientology courses are notoriously numerous — and expensive. “It’s not easy to accumulate money for processing,” David admits. “You still have to live and have a family and stuff to support… I would say [I spent] hundreds of thousands. Oh, believe me, more than I care to mention.” A source claims that David, who moved to Los Angeles after his divorce from Jen’s mom, Guadalupe, eventually ran out of money and was forced to stop taking Scientology classes in 2012. He also had to downsize from his $1 million home to a cheaper house, where he now lives with his second wife, Carla. TAKING SIDES Jennifer, 47, spoke glowingly of her father in a 2007 interview (perhaps the only time she’s discussed his Scientologist beliefs), saying: “He’s the best man that I know in my life, and so, it’s weird to me that people
want to paint it in a negative way.” But four years ago, her close friend, King of Queens star Leah Remini, left the church and began her crusade as one of its fiercest and most outspoken critics. Because of that, claims a source, “I certainly wouldn’t be surprised if Jen’s continued support of Leah drove a wedge between her and her father.” When asked about Jen’s relationship with Leah and the actress’ very public antiScientology crusade, David replied,
“Leah, who? Oh, no, I don’t follow that. I don’t want to talk about that.” The source claims that while Jennifer is still close with David, privately, “I think she’s disappointed that he’s spent so much of his money on the church. It could be a tough situation, because Jen has always respected her dad’s wishes in the past. Ultimately, it’s what’s best for her father that will always be Jen’s greatest concern.” H
FINDING THEIR DIRECTION David and his ex-wife, Jen’s mom Guadalupe, raised the star (center) and her two sisters, Lynda (left) and Leslie, as Roman Catholics while the children were growing up in the Bronx. David reportedly became interested in Scientology in the late 1980s — just as Jen was beginning her showbiz career. M AY 1 , 2 0 1 7

O the residents of the h tiny town of Point Reyes Station, located 42 miles northwest of San Francisco in Marin County, Susan Deixler is a familiar figure. The matronly but spry 72-year-old is the care manager for a local senior-services organization and has long been involved in community activism and social causes. But there’s another, longago chapter in Susan’s life, one that would astonish her neighbors should they be unaware of her past. Susan was the girlfriend of iconic singer/songwriter Barry Manilow when they attended Eastern District High School in Brooklyn, N.Y. (those are their early-1960s yearbook photos, above) — and she briefly became the wife of the now openly gay superstar 52 years ago! “What happened between us, our relationship, is ancient history,” says Susan in an exclusive interview. “I have children, I have a life.

In passing, Barry also mentioned his romance with Susan, saying he was “in love” with her, but claiming their May 1965 marriage lasted less than a year because he “was too young.

She lated that the marriage relocated to Northern was annulled “for not California years ago. being consummated.” Susan denied her relative’s reported claim and has said little else about her marriage to Barry through the years.

support so you can gain information about a situation. Don’t agree to anything until you have the facts. Share your heart — not your secrets!
GEMINI MAY 21–JUNE 20
NOV. 22–DEC. 21
A creative project can open up. Be an opportunist and make it yours. Mars in your sign gets you motivated, but don’t stretch yourself thin. Make a to-do list and prioritize.
With Mars in your opposite sign, don’t try to rush a relationship. Let it take its natural course. As Mercury comes out of retrograde, plans can change, so try to keep your schedule flexible.
JUNE 21–JULY 22
DEC. 22–JAN. 19
As Mercury comes out of retrograde, there may be confusion at work, but be patient. It will clear up. A colleague can come through in a financial sense.
The energy from Mars forces you to get organized, but don’t try to do too much. Make a plan to stay on track and be productive. Don’t fill every moment with activity; you need downtime to recharge.
LEO JULY 23–AUG. 22
Doors will open for you at work; stay the course, even if there are delays. Push through now and get what you want. With love, be prepared to make an important commitment.
VIRGO AUG. 23–SEPT. 22
Mars in your career zone can cause you to take on more than you can handle — pace yourself! Make time for a loved one and tell someone special how you feel.
LIBRA SEPT. 23–OCT. 22
You can be there for others, but don’t neglect your own needs. In relationships, don’t expect people to read your mind. Speak from your heart to avoid painful miscommunications.
SCORPIO OCT. 23–NOV. 21
This is a time for passion and romance. The stars provide an opportunity to meet someone new. Be patient: It takes time to build a relationship!
AQUARIUS JAN. 20–FEB. 18
A money matter that relates to your home and family life can further develop now. Be prepared to have a difficult discussion and make sure everyone is clear with what they are accountable for. Don’t assume anything.
PISCES FEB. 19–MARCH 20
You can feel motivated to move forward with a creative opportunity; don’t worry if you start to experience delays. A setback can be temporary and give you time to think. Focus on love to gain clarity as to how you feel.
ARIES MARCH 21–APRIL 19
Mercury in your sign comes out of retrograde. Be careful with your communication and double-check the details to avoid mix-ups. Venus ignites the love vibe, so be open to spending quality time with someone special.

How does a lady make the first move? Look into his eyes while you softly put your hand in his hair. You don’t have to say anything — just make these moves and he’ll understand you’re interested in him.
When is it too soon to introduce someone new to your friends and family? It’s too soon for your friends if you’re not exclusive, and too soon for your family if you’re not sure you’re officially in a relationship.
How often should you visit each other in a long-distance relationship? As often as you can, whenever you can, wherever you like. Both should play host and then guest, and remember the old saying “Far from the eyes... far from the heart.”
What’s the best way to keep the spark alive? Hot couple alert! John Legend shows his love for wife Chrissy Teigen by writing songs about her.

THE HANDMAID’S TALE
Elisabeth Moss, Joseph Fiennes
Premieres Wednesday, April 26, on Hulu Based on Margaret Atwood’s award-winning dystopian novel, this timely adaptation takes place in the Republic of Gilead, a totalitarian regime in the former U.S. that has stripped women of all their rights. As one of the last remaining fertile females in a society facing plunging birth rates, Offred (Moss) — i.e., “Of Fred” — is snatched from her family and forced into sex slavery as a Handmaid in Commander Fred Waterford’s (Fiennes) household alongside her new sisters in red (Alexis Bledel and Samira Wiley). But what happens when objects start to object?

Quickly rising up the ranks, Mae agrees to test the company’s latest innovation, a livestreaming camera called SeeChange, eroding any notion of privacy and, ultimately, her freedom.
Briga Heelan, Andrea Martin Premieres Tuesday, April 25, at 9PM on NBC Executive produced by Tina Fey, this unamusing cable news comedy follows Katie (Heelan), a producer struggling to keep The Breakdown team from, well, breaking down when her overbearing mom (Martin) scores an internship at the station. John Michael Higgins plays an aging anchor who can’t tell if Snapchat is a Minion or a Pokémon — yawn — and Nicole Richie’s role as his vapid, selfietaking sidekick proves a real stretch.

Maximo (Derbez) has made a career of seducing rich older women, but when his 80-year-old wife leaves him for a younger man, the fading gigolo has no choice but to move in with his sister Sara (Hayek) and her son Hugo (Raphael Alejandro).

HERE COMES THE PRINCESS BRIDE!
Did Harry and Meghan elope? Wh What hat happens happens iin n Vegas stays in Vegas. That is, unless you happen to be Prince Harry! As the world waits with bated breath for the redheaded royal to propose to girlfriend Meghan Markle, these “wedding photos” help us all imagine what it might look like if the couple eloped to Sin City, using some very convincing look-alikes. While Prince William and Duchess Kate’s royal wedding was declared a public holiday, Harry and Meghan decided to skip the pomp and circumstance of Westminster Abbey for the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel, where Shia LaBeouf and Mia Goth reportedly exchanged vows. Although the royal family wasn’t in attendance this time around, a source tells Star the queen would happily welcome Meghan into the Firm: “Meghan has been the only one able to tame Harry.” H

Who will inherit Gordon’s fortune? No one is safe from Chef Gordon Ramsay’s wrath! Although he’s worth an estimated $188 million, the foulmouthed father of four won’t be leaving his children a single strip of the bacon he’s brought home. “It’s to not spoil them. They don’t [even] sit with us in first class!” Gordon said. “They haven’t worked anywhere near hard enough to afford that. I say to the stewardess, ‘Make sure those little f***ers don’t come anywhere near us; I want to sleep on this plane.’ ” If you can’t stand the heat, get a job in the kitchen! H 82 Star M AY
Vanessa Hudgens has a new lease on n life — and it costs about a month’s rent too! After gaining 20 lbs. to play a runaway teenager in Gimme Shelter,, the actress turned to SoulCycle and CorePower Yoga to lose the weight. “I looked in the mirror and was like, ‘Who am I?’” said Vanessa, who started taking indoorcycling classes twice a day. “It was definitely a journey back to myself,f, and yoga helped [too].” But the former Disney star wasn’t just dropping dress sizes! Two SoulCycle classes per day at least five days a week costs nearly $300 and CorePower Yoga classes run about $75/week, which meanss it costs Vanessa about $1,600 per month to look — and feel — this good. Gimme shelter, indeed! H
Pippa Middleton’s bum might have stolen the show at the royal wedding, but in these pics, Harry looks thrilled to get his hands on Meghan’s!
Who’s taking care of Blanket? Will you be there? Paris Jackson has reportedly “expressed concern” for her youngest brother, Blanket, after learning that the 15-year-old boy has been living alone — without a proper guardian — at his grandmother Katherine Jackson’s house in Calabasas, Calif., for months now. Katherine and her son TJ were named coguardians of the children after Michael’s death in 2009, but the Jackson matriarch has been staying with her daughter Rebbie in L.A. since returning from a two-month trip to London to testify against her nephew Trent in an elder abuse trial. Though reports claim Blanket is getting straight A’s at school, Paris wanna be startin’ somethin’ and won’t stop until she gets enough answers! H

Tom’s High-Wire Act Paris, April 10
Tom Cruise’s stunt double got the day off after the actor decided to perform his own death-defying stunts on the set of Mission: Impossible 6. In front of a crowd of stunned bystanders, Tom jumped from a flying motorcycle and dangled precariously upside-down on the streets of Paris without breaking a sweat! “It is absolutely unbelievable — he’s been training for a year,” says producer David Ellison. “What Tom is doing in this movie will top anything that’s come before!”
