    Naomi Campbell wants to create a platform for emerging designers

    (6/20/18) Supermodel Naomi Campbell wants to help young fashion designers to show off their work online.

    “I want to do a platform because not everyone can go to these big fashion weeks around the world and put money into showing their product,” she said at a Cannes Lions panel Wednesday, mentioning designers she’s seen in Africa. “So there has to be another way … building a platform for the young emerging designers that don’t have a way to show their work, and invite online stores to come in and see, and help them grow.”

    Campbell, who organizes Fashion for Relief shows to benefit Save the Children and other charities, added: “What matters in my legacy that I leave is that I’ve done enough for models of color and diversity. That’s what kept me here for so long is that I don’t feel — I haven’t felt — that it’s right … For years [diversity] has been this afterthought and it should just be a thought along with everything else.”

    Campbell’s concerned a current wave of diversity in fashion could be fleeting.

    “It can’t be a trend,” she said. “It can’t go backwards again. We have to stay and keep going forwards. That’s my worry.”

    She recalled a time in her career when she was rejected by French Vogue because it had never put a black woman on the cover. She said she went to Yves Saint Laurent, who threatened to pull ads, and she landed the cover in 1988.

    “My life has been a challenge, but I’ve loved that. I’ve used that to drive me,” she said. “I’ve never played a victim to any of this. It gives me energy to say ‘OK, that didn’t happen that way, I’ll find another way.'”

    She also tackled pay disparity in an unusual circumstance. “When I did Playboy they said, ‘She can’t get the same money as Cindy Crawford,'” Campbell recalled. “My lawyer said, ‘Why?’ And they said, ‘because Naomi’s t–s are smaller.’ I was like, ‘So what? I’m built differently.'”

    Linda Evangelista and fellow supermodels post their support for Congo park

    (4/15/18) It’s a super (model) cause. Linda Evangelista — who once said, “We don’t wake up for less than $10,000 a day” — is woke about the plight of African wildlife.

    Evangelista — in support of Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo — urged her Instagram followers to repost a video about five rangers who were ambushed and killed by poachers.

    The rangers were trying to protect the park’s elephants, gorillas and leopards, who are slaughtered for their body parts, which are smuggled to Asia and sold as miracle medicinal cures.

    Fellow supe Naomi Campbell replied, “This breaks my heart. Let’s hold them in memory and support the sacrifice they face and have made day in and out.”

    Covergirl Doutzen Kroes is also supporting the Elephant Crisis Fund and posed in a @knotonmyplanet T-shirt on Instagram.

    Model Janice Dickinson tells jury Bill Cosby raped her in 1982: 'I wanted to punch him in the face'

    (4/13/18) Model Janice Dickinson told a jury Thursday that Bill Cosby raped her in 1982 after giving her a pill he claimed would ease her menstrual cramps but instead left her immobilized and unable to stop an assault she called “gross.”

    Dickinson, the fourth accuser to take the witness stand at Cosby’s sex assault retrial, told jurors she was “rendered motionless” by the pill as Cosby got on top of her in his Lake Tahoe, California, hotel room. She said he smelled of cigars and espresso.

    “I didn’t consent to this. Here was ’America’s Dad,’ on top of me. A married man, father of five kids, on top of me,” Dickinson said. “I was thinking how wrong it was. How very wrong it was.”

    Dickinson, 27 at the time, testified she felt vaginal pain and, after waking up the next morning, noticed semen between her legs. She said Cosby looked at her “like I was crazy” when she confronted him about what had happened.

    “I wanted to hit him. I wanted to punch him in the face,” she said.

    Dickinson, the former model and TV personality who has called herself the “world’s first supermodel,” became one of the first women to go public with her allegations against Cosby when she told her story on “Entertainment Tonight” in 2014.

    During cross-examination, a defence attorney seized on discrepancies between Dickinson’s testimony and what she wrote about their encounter in her 2002 autobiography.

    She told jurors she wanted to include details about the assault, but Cosby and his lawyers pressured her to tell a highly sanitized version in which there was no sex at all, let alone a rape.

    Dickinson said she went along because she needed the money — and feared Cosby would ruin her career.

    “It’s all a fabrication there. It was written by ghostwriters. I wanted a paycheque,” she said.

    Dickinson is one of five additional accusers whom prosecutors are calling to the stand to show Cosby had a history of drugging and molesting women long before he was charged with violating Andrea Constand at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004.

    The 80-year-old comedian says his sexual encounter with Constand was consensual. His first trial ended in a hung jury.

    The defence has dismissed the other women’s testimony as “prosecution by distraction.”

    “These women proved that they were here to back up their sister — they got their sister’s back,” Cosby spokesman Andrew Wyatt said outside court Thursday.

    On the stand, Dickinson said she got to know Cosby after he called her agent and said he wanted to meet and possibly mentor her as she looked to expand her career into singing and acting. The first accuser to testify, Heidi Thomas, said she met Cosby the same way.

    She said Cosby invited her to Lake Tahoe after an initial meeting at his New York City townhouse, where he had given her an acting manual. Cosby tracked her down to Bali, where she was modeling for an oil company calendar, and asked her to Lake Tahoe “to further talk about my career.”

    In Tahoe, she tested out her vocal range with Cosby’s musical director, watched Cosby perform and then joined the two men for dinner at the hotel. She said that’s where she started to get cramps, and that’s when Cosby produced a little blue pill. She took it and soon became woozy and “slightly out of it.”

    Cosby’s musical director left, Dickinson said, and Cosby told her: “We’ll continue this conversation upstairs.”

    Dickinson had a Polaroid camera with her, she said, and snapped photos of Cosby in the room wearing a colorful robe and talking on the telephone. Then Cosby pounced.

    “Shortly after I took the pictures and he finished the conversation, he got on top of me,” Dickinson said. “His robe opened up. … I couldn’t move.

    “I didn’t fly to Tahoe to have sex with Mr. Cosby,” she said.

    Before her testimony, Cosby’s lawyers sought to raise doubts about the allegations of another accuser who testified the comedian knocked her out with pills and raped her during a 1982 encounter in Nevada — the year of the alleged assault on Dickinson.

    Janice Baker-Kinney returned to the witness stand Thursday after punctuating the first two hours of her testimony with a firm declaration: “I was raped.” She was a 24-year-old casino bartender in Reno when she says Cosby gave her pills she suspected to be quaaludes and had sex with her.

    During cross-examination, Cosby lawyer Tom Mesereau suggested that Baker-Kinney was motivated to distort the facts of a fun evening when she heard about a possible $100 million windfall from Cosby. She came forward in April 2015, a few months after lawyer Gloria Allred proposed that Cosby set aside a chunk of his fortune to compensate accusers. Cosby refused.

    Baker-Kinney told the jury she was motivated by a desire to help other accusers, and that she’s only relied on Allred as a media adviser and point of contact “to make sure I didn’t get tripped up.” She said she’s never paid Allred, hasn’t been paid by the lawyer and hasn’t been involved litigation against Cosby.

    Dickinson, Baker-Kinney and the other two accusers who have testified so far told jurors they wound up unconscious from the pills or alcohol Cosby gave them, unable to say no or resist as he had his way with them.

    Prosecutors hope their testimony will help bolster Constand, the former women’s basketball administrator at Cosby’s alma mater, Temple University. Constand, who will take the stand later in the trial, alleges Cosby gave her pills and molested her. The defence says she set him up to score a big payday. Cosby settled her civil suit for $3.4 million.

    The Associated Press does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission, which Constand and the other women have done.

    Tyra Banks admits she had a nose job

    (3/28/18) Tyra Banks had a nose job in the early days of her fashion career.

    The supermodel rose to fame in the early 1990s when she nabbed gigs for the likes of Chanel, Oscar de la Renta, Christian Dior, Michael Kors, among others, and has since gone on to break into the world of television as a host on shows such as America’s Next Top Model and America’s Got Talent.

    Tyra is now gearing up to release her memoir, titled Perfect Is Boring, and in an excerpt released to People, has divulged that she once had plastic surgery on her nose.

    “I had bones in my nose that were growing and itching,” she admitted. “I could breathe fine, but I added cosmetic surgery. I admit it! Fake hair, and I did my nose. I feel I have a responsibility to tell the truth.”

    Penned with her mother Carolyn London, the book reflects on Tyra’s journey from insecure teenager to famous supermodel, as well as her new career as an entrepreneur.

    She founded cosmetics brand Tyra Beauty in 2014 and doesn’t think there is anything wrong with wearing make-up to feel good.

    “We place a lot of emphasis on (natural beauty),” the 44-year-old sighed. “As a model, I needed make-up. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. It levelled my playing field.

    “If you like your natural self, don’t worry about it. But if you feel insecure about something … I have a magic bag of beauty tricks to make you who you want to be.”

    Tyra also explained that she does not judge people who experiment with temporary or permanent measures to alter their appearance, though clarified that she has not undergone any “age stuff” as yet.

    Perfect Is Boring: 10 Things My Crazy, Fierce Mama Taught Me About Beauty, Booty, and Being a Boss is due to hit shelves from April 3.

    ‘Ballers’: Joy Bryant Set To Recur In Season 4 Of HBO Series

    (2/28/18) Parenthood alum Joy Bryant is joining the upcoming fourth season of HBO’s Ballers in a recurring role.

    Bryant will play a successful public defender who is a single mom to a hotshot rising football star in high school.

    Created by Stephen Levinson (Boardwalk Empire), Dwayne Johnson-starring Ballers looks at the whirlwind lifestyles and real-life problems of former and current football players.

    Bryant, known for her role as Jasmine on all six seasons of NBC’s Parenthood, most recently appeared as a series regular on Amazon’s Good Girls Revolt. Her film credits include Screen Gems’ About Last Night opposite Kevin Hart and Regina Hall. Bryant is repped by by ICM Partners, Sanders Armstrong Caserta Management, and Shreck Rose Adams.

    Bella Hadid obtains restraining order against alleged stalker

    (2/13/18) The creep found lurking around stunner Bella Hadid’s Manhattan pad now has a restraining order against him, law enforcement sources said.

    Per the order, accused stalker Brian Perez, who was arrested Feb. 9, can no longer contact the model in person or online.

    Perez was busted after posting a photo of the bombshell’s Tribeca apartment, and sending her creepy messages over social media.

    “You want me to come? I’m going to come there now,” court documents claim the 37-year-old wrote Hadid on Instagram.

    The Fordham Manor man then perplexingly adds: “Please don’t make me come all the way down there.”

    The 21-year-old even saw the man outside her building at one point, the docs say.

    Perez, who stands charged with aggravated harassment and stalking, was released without bail following his Feb. 9 arraignment.

    He’s due back in court in March.

    Gigi Hadid lashes out at body shamers: 'Stop putting me in that box'

    (2/13/18) Gigi Hadid detailed her battle with Hashimoto’s disease in a bid to shut down body shamers who claim she’s too thin.

    Since embarking on her super successful modelling career in 2013, 22-year-old Gigi has noticeably slimmed down.

    After Gigi took to the New York Fashion Week runways over the weekend, fashion fans spoke out about her slender figure, which led to a furious Twitter outburst from the model.

    “For those of you so determined to come up w(ith) why my body has changed over the years, you may not know that when I started @ 17 I was not yet diagnosed w/Hashimoto’s disease; those of u who called me “too big for the industry” were seeing inflammation & water retention due to that (sic).

    “Over the last few years I’ve been properly medicated to help symptoms including those, as well as extreme fatigue, metabolism issues, body’s ability to retain heat, etc … I was also part of a holistic medical trial that helped my thyroid levels balance out.”

    Hashimoto’s is an autoimmune disease in which the thyroid gland is gradually destroyed. Zoe Saldana, Gina Rodriguez and Kim Cattrall also suffer with it.

    Gigi walked for the likes of Prabal Gurung, Brandon Maxwell and Jeremy Scott, among others, and no doubt has a jam-packed schedule when Fashion Week moves to Europe on Friday.

    She further blamed stress and travel for having an effect on her weight, but was keen to let her fans and critics know she feels healthier that ever.

    “Although stress & excessive travel can also affect the body, I have always eaten the same, my body just handles it differently now that my health is better. I may be “too skinny” for u, honestly this skinny isn’t what I want to be, but I feel healthier internally and (cont)am still learning and growing with my body everyday, as everyone is,” she opened up.

    “I will not further explain the way my body looks, just as anyone, with a body type that doesnt suit ur “beauty” expectation, shouldnt have to. Not to judge others, but drugs are not my thing, stop putting me in that box just because u dont understand the way my body has matured (sic).”

    Kate Upton explains topless tumble at SI photoshoot

    (2/13/18) An unexpected wave took Kate Upton down during her Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition shoot.

    “The next coming wave didn’t look that large from my point of view but it must have hit the rock just right,” the model, 25, said in a video on Sports Illustrated Swimsuit’s Instagram account posted Tuesday. “The skirt with all the tulle, whenever it’s wet is very heavy and dragged me down.”

    Upton, who was posing on top of a rock in Aruba for the sexy shoot in October, was wearing just a long, tiered, tulle skirt with her hands covering her breasts.

    “Everybody was very scared,” the model added, even though photos showed that Upton recovered quickly.

    The 2018 SI Swimsuit Edition, which also stars Aly Raisman and Ashley Graham, hits stands on Wednesday.

    Kate Moss lost her virginity at 14

    (2/8/18) Kate Moss has revealed she thought she was the “bee’s knees” after losing her virginity at the age of 14 – just days before she was scouted by a modeling agent.

    The British supermodel, now 44, was spotted at JFK airport in New York by Storm Models founder Sarah Doukas while smoking a cigarette in 1988.

    In an interview with Love Magazine, she said: “I was 14 and I’d just lost my virginity. So I thought I was the bee’s knees.

    “I was in the airport puffing away. I’d got on the plane and then Sarah’s brother came up to me and said ‘Have you ever thought about being a model?'”

    The mother-of-one admitted she had “never, never, never” considered a career in the industry due to her “skinny” appearance.

    She said: “I was short, I had bow legs and crooked teeth and nobody thought I was the prettiest girl in the school.”

    Kate also admitted that she feels she was too young when she signed up with the agency – adding that she wouldn’t let her daughter do it now.

    She also said in the interview how she didn’t believe she was good at modeling until recently.

    And despite being on the cover of over 100 fashion magazines, Kate added that she doesn’t like camera phones, describing them as a “love/hate thing.”

    A tell-all book published in 2014 claimed to reveal Kate had lost her virginity in her early teens, however, the Love Magazine interview is the first time she has publicly confirmed so.

    Champagne Supernovas by Maureen Callaghan also told of the model’s wild partying habits, including her large drug and alcohol consumption.

    In 2014, she ranked as the 91st wealthiest celebrity on Forbes’ rich list, with estimated earnings of over $9 million a year.

    Kate Upton details accusations against Paul Marciano

    (2/8/18) Kate Upton, who had previously Tweeted #MeToo in regard to Guess co-founder Paul Marciano, has detailed her allegations to Time, saying the fashion head assaulted and harassed her and called her a “fat pig.”

    Upton claims that Marciano asked to meet her while she was shooting a Guess Lingerie campaign in 2010. “Paul came straight up to me, forcibly grabbed my breasts and started feeling them — playing with them actually. After I pushed him away, he said, ‘I’m making sure they’re real.’ Despite doing everything I could physically do to avoid his touch throughout the meeting, he continued to touch me in a very dominating and aggressive way, grabbing my thighs, my arms to pull me closer, my shoulders to pull me closer, my neck, my breasts, and smelling me.”

    Upton says Marciano asked photographer Yu Tsai to leave but he stayed when she asked him to by text. “That did not stop Paul’s constant grabbing. I was extremely shaken, surprised and scared,” Upton says. “At one point he forcibly grabbed the back of my head so that I could not move and started kissing my face and my neck. I remember not wanting to say ‘Get off of me’ because I didn’t want to open my mouth to say anything because I didn’t want him to be able to put his tongue in my mouth.”

    On her next Guess shoot a month later, Upton alleged Marciano continued to call her room asking to come up, but she refused. “The next day, I learned that I had been fired from the shoot. Someone had called my agency to say I had gotten fat.”

    Upton says Marciano continued to text her after that and she came up with an agreement with photographer Yu Tsai that she would never be left alone with the Guess head. “Paul’s texting increased, telling me how excited he was to see me, that he wanted me to change in front of him so he could see my naked body getting into his clothes. He asked if I thought of him when I was posing sexy on set. All the language he used was extremely dominant and possessive. At one point, to avoid Paul coming to set, I told him my boyfriend was going to be there. He was absolutely furious at that. It was an emotional and non-stop battle of games, power struggles and creative avoidance tactics,” she says.

    Yu Tsai was fired and Ellen Von Unwerth was brought in. Marciano allegedly grabbed her arm and told her they were going to dinner. Von Unwerth stepped in and took her away. “After that he was extremely upset,” Upton recalls. “I had a final shoot [in May of 2011], and he was outwardly rude and degrading the entire time. He said I was ‘disgusting’ and started telling people how unprofessional I was by spreading rumors that I was drunk on set and partying every night, which of course I wasn’t. I was then told to leave because Paul had said, ‘Get that fat pig off my set.’”

    Upton also painfully outlines how the experience made her feel, saying she wanted to quit modeling. “I constantly blamed myself after it happened,” she says. “I started slumping my shoulders to hide my breast size, wearing baggy clothes, started despising my own body. … You chalk it up to, ‘This is how it is.’ And you go through this gut-wrenching struggle of, ‘How much of myself am I required to sacrifice?'”

    Upton is now defiant. “Paul used his power to make me feel insecure and powerless, but I’m not going to let him intimidate me anymore,” she says. “These men think they are untouchable, but times are changing.”

    Marciano has called the allegations “absolutely false” and “preposterous.” “I have never been alone with Kate Upton,” he told Time. “I have never touched her inappropriately. Nor would I ever refer to a Guess model in such a derogatory manner.”

    Christie Brinkley says Trump tried to woo her while married to Ivana

    (2/6/18) Christie Brinkley claims “smarmy” Donald Trump tried to woo her while he was married to Ivana.

    Brinkley revealed in an interview with Porter magazine that Trump asked her to join him on his private jet — but she turned him down because she suspected he was “chasing skirts.”

    She said, “My phone rings and this guy goes, ‘Hey, Christie, it’s The Donald.’ I say, ‘Hi, Billy,’ because I was dating Billy [Joel] at the time. But the voice goes, ‘No, no. It’s The Donald! … I hear you’re leaving for Aspen tomorrow. I am too. I’d like to give you a ride on my private jet.’”

    Brinkley continued, “So I reply, ‘Thank you, but I have already arranged my flights.’ I knew he was married, and there he was asking me to go on his plane. He was kind of flirty about it. He was out chasing skirts.”

    She added, “I’m done being discreet. I’ve had dinner with him. I’ve always found him smarmy, as in, ‘Watch out, part the waves, the rich people are coming, everything is gold, solid 24-carat gold, the best, the greatest, nobody else has more gold on anything in their house than me. Did you bring a brush? Let’s gold-leaf it!’ ”

    A White House official did not immediately respond.

    Kate Upton Accuses Guess Co-Founder Paul Marciano of 'Sexually, Emotionally Harassing Women'

    (2/1/18) Kate Upton has accused the man behind fashion giant Guess of harassing women.

    Once the face of Guess, the model called out the label’s co-founder and chief creative officer, Paul Marciano, 65, on social media Wednesday.

    While Upton, 25, did not detail a specific incident, she shared her concerns about Marciano referring to the #MeToo movement.

    “It’s disappointing that such an iconic women’s brand @GUESS is still empowering Paul Marciano as their creative director #metoo,” Upton tweeted.

    Minutes later, Upton shared the same tweet on Instagram with the caption, “He shouldn’t be allowed to use his power in the industry to sexually and emotionally harass women #metoo.”

    A rep for Guess and Marciano did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

    Her husband Justin Verlander, whom she wed in November, also retweeted the tweet.

    Upton first became a celebrity spokesmodel for the brand in 2011 following in the footsteps of Claudia Schiffer and Cindy Crawford. Most recent faces of Guess include Gigi Hadid, Hailey Baldwin, Camila Cabello and Jennifer Lopez.

    @KateUpton : It’s disappointing that such an iconic women’s brand @GUESS is still empowering Paul Marciano as their creative director #metoo

    Marciano co-founded Guess in 1981 and has served as its executive chairman and chief creative officer since August 2015.

    The hashtag #MeToo spread virally in October 2017 on social media to spread prevalence of sexual assault and harassment in the workplace after a wave of allegations was spurred by a slew of stories alleging sexual misconduct by Harvey Weinstein.

    Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell make surprise runway appearance

    (1/20/18) (Pic) It might be men’s fashion week in Paris, but women just won the runways.

    Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell, the most super of supermodel duos, made a surprise appearance on Louis Vuitton’s catwalk on Thursday. Both women wore logo-printed trenches styled with matching hiking boots — yet another point to monogram mania, which has recently resurged in the fashion world.

    Until Thursday, Moss hadn’t walked the runway since Louis Vuitton’s fall 2013 women’s show, back when Marc Jacobs was creative director. (That time, she wore a sheer gown, catapulting her ahead of the now-ubiquitous naked dress trend).

    Meanwhile, Campbell is continuing a haute streak on the runways: She closed Off-White’s Spring 2018 show in Paris in October, and appeared in the runway reunion heard ’round the world at Versace’s Spring 2018 show in September.

    The pair took a finale bow with menswear designer Kim Jones, who on Wednesday announced his departure from Louis Vuitton.

    With women’s fashion month just a few weeks away, it’s hard to imagine a moment more super than this.

    Chrissy Teigen offers to foot Mckayla Maroney's $100K fine if she speaks out about doctor

    (1/16/18) Chrissy Teigen has offered to pay gymnast Mckayla Maroney’s $100,000 fine if she speaks out about the abuse she experienced at the hands of U.S. team doctor Larry Nassar.

    The disgraced medic is in court for sentencing after he was accused of sexual assault by several top gymnasts, but one of the victims, Olympian Maroney, won’t be able to testify under the terms of a $1.25 million non-disclosure agreement (NDA) she signed in 2016.

    If she does speak out she faces a $100,000 fine.

    Teigen has taken to Twitter to defend the gymnast, urging her to speak out during Nassar’s sentencing hearing without needing to worry about a fine.

    “The entire principle of this should be fought – an NDA to stay quiet about this serial monster with over 140 accusers, but I would be absolutely honored to pay this fine for you, McKayla,” Teigen tweeted on Tuesday morning.

    During the hearing, multiple alleged victims are expected to give statements about experiences and encounters with the doctor. Over 100 people have come forward with sexual misconduct claims against Nassar.

    He was sentenced to 60 years in federal prison on possession of child pornography charges in July 2017.

    Nassar has also pleaded guilty to seven counts of criminal sexual assault in the first degree.

    Olympic gymnasts Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas and Simone Biles were among those who accused Nassar of molesting them.

    Why Ashley Graham was worried about working with Terry Richardson

    (1/9/18) (Video) Ashley Graham once took a job with Terry Richardson, even though she had heard he was bad news.

    “I got the call to do the job and, of course, you know the rumors, you’ve heard them from everyone,” the 30-year-old model told the ladies of “The View” on Tuesday of working with the photographer now accused of sexual assault.

    Graham, who was 17 or 18 at the time and without her mother by her side, acknowledged that in addition to the negative rumors, “people praise him” as a photographer, so she took the gig.

    “I said ‘yes’ to the job because you want to work with the best of the best, you want those images in your portfolio,” she explained.

    Still, she worried about her safety.

    “I thought, ‘Oh my God, I could be a victim,’ who knows,” she recalled. “Of course you had that feeling of, ‘Is he going to ask me to take my shirt off?’ You just don’t know because you hear so many rumors.”

    Fortunately, Graham said the shoot was “normal enough.”

    The controversial photographer — previously dubbed the “Sleaze King” — is under investigation by the NYPD after several women came forward accusing him of sexual misconduct. Richardson has denied the allegations.

    Lenny Kravitz dating Victoria's Secret model who's a year older than daughter

    (1/9/18) Rocker Lenny Kravitz has a new woman in his life — and she’s just one year older than his actress daughter.

    The Fly Away hitmaker is dating Victoria’s Secret model Barbara Fialho, and the new couple was photographed kissing and holding hands during an outing in Miami, Fla., on Sunday.

    The Brazilian beauty celebrated her 30th birthday last month, days after Zoe Kravitz turned 29. The X-Men: First Class star is Lenny’s child from his former marriage to actress Lisa Bonet, who he divorced in 1993.

    The news of the singer’s latest romance emerges weeks after Lenny admitted he wasn’t interested in dating unless it had the potential to lead to marriage.

    “I’ve been, like, really, really single for the last few months. I’m keeping it that way…,” he recently told fashion outlet Mr. Porter. “I’m waiting to meet that person. I’m waiting for the soul partner, the wife.”

    In addition to his relationship with Bonet, Lenny was also engaged to actress Nicole Kidman in the early 2000s.

    He has remained close to both exes, so he was happy to see Zoe working with Kidman last year on their hit TV drama Big Little Lies.

    “Nicole is amazing,” the 53-year-old shared. “Zoe and she hadn’t spent time together since she was younger, since Nicole and I were together, so that was great.”

    Back in June, Zoe also opened up about getting to share the small screen with her almost-stepmother.

    “I hadn’t seen her in a long time before Big Little Lies, but there was a point where we were all kind of living together,” Zoe told the The Edit. “I was about 13, and she would take me to see movies; she was so nice to me.”

    Chris Zylka proposed to Paris Hilton with a $2M ring

    (1/2/18) Chris Zylka reportedly proposed to Paris Hilton in Aspen, Colo., with a monster 20-carat diamond ring — a big chunk of ice even in the Rockies.

    We first reported Zylka popped the question just before New Year’s Eve.

    TMZ says that Zylka ordered the $2 million rock over the summer, and it took four months to cut. The diamond, surrounded by dozens of smaller ones, seemingly covers Hilton’s finger below the knuckle.

    Appropriately, considering the price, the diamond’s teardrop-shaped.

    Eva Marcille is engaged to longtime boyfriend

    (12/26/17) (Photo) Eva Marcille’s 2018 plans just grew tenfold.

    The model-turned-actress got engaged to her longtime boyfriend Michael Sterling over the Christmas holiday.

    “I said yes!!!” Marcille, 33, captioned a snap of her engagement ring on Christmas Day.

    Fan reactions and congratulations have been pouring in on her social media pages.

    In November, Marcille, who was spotted filming episodes of “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” announced she is expecting a baby boy with Sterling.

    “We’re expecting!!!! 5 months in and we couldn’t be more excited,” she wrote on social media.

    Marcille is already mother to 3-year-old Marley Rae from a previous relationship with Kevin McCall.

    It’s unclear when the couple of more than a year plans to tie the knot or if it will be captured for reality-TV cameras.

    Claudia Schiffer made over $200K for 60-second ‘Love Actually’ cameo

    (12/20/17) Claudia Schiffer got paid a whopping £200,000 (approximately $267,368) for her 60-second cameo in “Love Actually.”

    The supermodel plays the mum of one of Sam’s schoolmates, whose dad Daniel (Liam Neeson) meets and develops a crush on.

    Her fleeting scene as Carol sees her come face to face with Daniel in a school corridor and he mistakenly calls her Karen.

    He says: “Well, I hope we’ll meet again, Karen.”

    Despite his mistake, she replies: “I’ll make sure we do.”

    She also makes a very brief appearance in the airport at the end of the hugely popular 2003 movie.

    According to the book “How Much?!: The $1000 Omlette… and 1100 Other Astonishing Money Moments” by Andrew Holmes, the film’s director Richard Curtis splashed £200,000 on her show-stealing moment.

    The hefty pay packet is in stark contrast to Kris Marshall, who plays Colin in the film.

    The actor reportedly returned his pay check for the scenes in which he is undressed by three American women – which reportedly took 21 takes.

    Despite his iconic role in the film Kris wasn’t part of the Love Actually reunion for Comic Relief earlier this year.

    In the film, Colin moved to America in the hope of finding love thanks to his British accent.

    Speaking about not being part of it, he told the Mirror: “I did get a very, very sweet email from Richard.

    “Richard said, ‘Look, we’re making a charity, where-are-they-now movie of Love Actually, but I didn’t have the time or the budget to go and see where your character went’.”

    He added: “But with Emma Thompson and Martin Freeman also not in it, I’m in good company.”

    Adrianne Curry Spills 'The Truth' About 'America's Next Top Model' and Hearing 'Crickets' From Tyra Banks

    (12/12/17) Adrianne Curry smized her way to the crown on the first cycle of "America's Next Top Model," but in a lengthy blog post, the reality TV star called out the show for not supporting her after her victory.

    In a blog titled, "The Truth About Top Model," the now "older and wiser" brunette sheds "some light on what went down with me after that show," detailing the struggles she faced trying to make it in the industry following her "ANTM" win.

    "We were promised a Revlon contract on my season and a contract with Wilhelmina. They did voice overs on the actual aired show and changed what was being said to us while filming," she alleged. "When I met with Revlon, they informed me they never planned on using the winner, whoever she may be, for any ads. They hired me for $15k to model makeup in a room with 10 execs in it to honor said contract. I was crushed, but still very grateful. $15k is amazing!"

    Unfortunately, Curry said that $15,000 never came. According to her, Wilhelmina got ticked when "Top Model" decided to offer a contract with IMG Models for Cycle 2.

    "Wilhelmina claimed they were promised they'd be used again and again," said Curry. "Wilhelmina then informed me they didnt want me to be successful in any way to spite top model," she continued, saying the agency would push third place contestant Elyse more, again out of spite.

    "I reached out to Tyra and 'Top Model,' desperate to get out of my contract and get advice as I was not being given any castings, etc. by an agency that wanted me to fail," she continued. "CRICKETS. Phone calls ignored. Then, my $15k for Revlon? Suddenly, I wasn't being paid."

    "I had a big heart and I really looked to the show as my saviors and Tyra my angel," she added. "When I was desperate for help and being punished by my agency for being from the show after they dropped Wilhelmina ... I just wanted some guidance ... some ... something."

    Curry said her agency "suddenly" became interested in her again when she was offered a gig on VH1's "Surreal Life," but Curry said it was mainly because Banks and the "Top Model" producers did not want her to participate in the reality show.

    "51 minds, the producers of the 'Surreal Life' let me know that 'Top Model' has spoke to them and doesn't want me to go on. Suddenly, I exist again," she explained. "I saw Tyra and the show as angels that had saved me and gave me a new life. The realization that they didnt give a f-ck about me was crushing. I was so angry."

    She said she acted wild on "Surreal Life" -- where she'd meet her former husband Christopher Knight -- on purpose. "I took joy in knowing it would bother people. It was my ode to F-CK YOU. I took every opportunity to let press know I was never paid or given my prize. I'd talk shit about Tyra just to do it. Revenge was sweet. I talked mad shit that I wouldn't do now, I was a kid."

    Despite Curry's comments, she said she is "beyond grateful" to have won. "Every set back, every heart break I faced, I grew," she added. "It made me stronger. I was set on a path that led me where I am today."

    "I wish Tyra well in her life and have no hard feelings anymore. She is a woman looking out for herself in a world where no one else gives a shit about you," she added in closing. "Being cut throat and numb to others in that industry is the only way to get ahead."

    In one final jab towards Banks, she joked that she loved how her finale photo "didn't get hogged by Tyra," who took the photo instead of posing with them all. "She should have stuck to that, she takes great shots."

    "America's Next Top Model" returns for a new season with Banks on VH1 in January 2018.

    Adriana Lima needs a really good reason to get naked from now on

    (12/12/17) Is Adriana Lima hanging up her wings?

    The Victoria’s Secret Angel had what appeared to be a change of heart about lingerie and swimsuit modeling over the weekend.

    “I had received a call for the possibility of filming a sexy video of me to be posted and shared in social media. Even though I have done many of this type, something had changed in me,” Lima, 36, wrote on Instagram Saturday.

    “When a friend approached me to share that she was unhappy with her body, then it made me think…. that everyday in my life, I wake up thinking, how do I look? Was I going to be accepted in my job? And in that moment I realized that majority of [women] probably wake up every morning trying to fit in a stereotype that society/social media/fashion etc imposed,” she continued. “I thought that’s not a way of living and beyond that…. that’s not physically and mentally healthy, so I decided to make that change….. I will not take [off] my clothes anymore for a empty cause.”

    In the same post, she wrote, “I am tired of the impositions, we ‘as [women]’ can’t be continuing [to live] in a world with such superficial values, it’s not fair for us. It’s physically and mentally not healthy … I want to change it, in the name of my grandma, my mother, and all her ancestors that have been labeled, pressured, [and misunderstood]. I am next to you. And I will stand by you. Let’s f—king change the world. On behalf of my children, please allow me I am here.”

    In November, Lima, who shares two daughters with ex-husband Marko Jaric, told press that she didn’t want to retire from the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show for another two years, which would earn her 20 struts down the brand’s runway.

    It’s unclear exactly what prompted Lima’s change of heart, but it’s possible she was influenced by her latest love, Turkish writer Metin Hara, to whom she’s been linked since June.

    Hara reposted Lima’s missive, captioning the message, “Each soul on the path of awakening carries a great burden in his/her heart… The dream for a better world… For one, for all.”

    A rep for the stunner did not immediately return a request for comment.

    David Cassidy accused of groping by ex-model

    (12/10/17) A former model claims late “Partridge Family” star David Cassidy was a “first class creep” who groped her and tried to put his hand up her skirt when she was 19, according to a report.

    Samantha Fox claims Cassidy, who died earlier this month from liver failure, followed her into a public bathroom and got handsy in May 1985, she told The Daily Star.

    “When he grabbed me and pushed his tongue down my throat, I just kneed him in the b—ks,” the model-turned singer said.

    Fox, 51, claims she’d originally agreed previously to appear topless in a music video at the actor’s bequest for his single “Romance,” but became disgusted when she realized he had an erection.

    “Whenever he pressed himself against me, I could clearly feel his d–k,” she writes in her a soon-to-be released autobiography, “Forever.”

    “David seemed to be deliberately drawing out the photoshoot, which took an eternity, and he had an erection the entire time – something he did absolutely nothing to hide,” said Fox.

    Uncomfortable, she still agreed to accompany him to dinner later that evening, but had her father come along.

    “In the middle of dinner, I got up to go to the toilet, and as I was standing alone in the women’s toilets, washing my hands, the door flew open and David Cassidy came storming in,” The Star reports, citing an excerpt from the book.

    “Before I really had time to process what was happening, he had pushed me up against the wall and his hands were all over me. I shouted: ‘Get off me, David!’ in an attempt to stop him. But instead, he just stuck his tongue into my mouth and shoved a hand under my skirt, while the other kept a firm grip on one of my breasts,” she wrote.

    “I reacted quickly and instinctively by bringing my knee upwards, striking him right in the balls.”

    “David jerked back with an ‘Ouch!’ and grabbed his crotch with both hands. I took a deep breath and shouted, ‘Get away from me!'”

    She says she then elbowed him in the face, and returned to the table.

    “In that moment, the handsome, sweet guy from ‘The Partridge Family’ had transformed into a first-class creep,” said Fox.

    She added that, growing up, she “had a big poster of David Cassidy on my wall, and I used to kiss him every night before going to bed.”

    Bella Hadid: ‘I stand with Palestine’

    (12/8/17) Donald Trump’s recent remarks about Israel hits close to home for Bella Hadid.

    “Seeing the sadness of my father, cousins, and Palestinian family that are feeling for our Palestinian ancestors makes this even harder to write,” she wrote in a lengthy post on Instagram. “Jerusalem is home of all religions. For this to happen, I feel, makes us take 5 steps back making it harder to live in a world of peace.”

    The model, who is of Palestinian descent on her father Mohammed Hadid‘s side, was referring to Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel instead of Tel Aviv. The decision has sparked a “Day of Rage” in the Jewish state.

    “Watching the news and seeing the pain of the Palestinian people makes me cry for the many many generations of Palestine,” she continued. “The TREATMENT of the Palestinian people is unfair, one-sided and should not be tolerated. I stand with Palestine.”

    This isn’t the first time the 21-year-old beauty has been vocal about politics. In January, Bella and sister Gigi joined marchers in a protesting Trumps immigration ban.

    “There is no hate against anyone… There are no sides… All religions living side by side.. Now it is Just one man..it has always been a factor of trying to bring peace… Where is the hope..?” she concluded.

    Former SI cover girl: Sexual harassment was once ‘a compliment’

    (12/8/17) Model Paulina Porizkova — who was on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in ’84 and ’85 — says that, at the time, sexual harassment was such an ingrained part of the business, it was viewed as a “compliment.”

    “Here is the funny thing about sexual harassment with us as models: It was seen as a compliment,” she told us at the Bloomberg 50 gala at Gotham Hall.

    “As a matter of fact, you almost got offended if you did not get harassed. Like, if this photographer is known for hitting on [models] — or goes for all the brunettes — and you show up at the studio and you are a brunette and he does not hit on you .?.?. it is like, ‘What is wrong with me?’ So it is messed up. It makes you think that sexual harassment is what you need.”

    Eva Marcille Is Pregnant! Find Out the Sex of the Real Housewives of Atlanta Star's Second Child

    (11/21/17) Eva Marcille (ex-Tyra Hamilton, The Young & The Restless) keeps the exciting news coming!

    E! News can confirm the Real Housewives of Atlanta star is pregnant and expecting her second child—a baby boy! She's already a mama to her 3-year-old daughter, Marley Rae, with her ex Kevin McCall, but the baby will mark her first with boyfriend Michael Sterling.

    Marcille took to Instagram to share the exciting news alongside a photo of Marley and Michael, writing, "We're Expecting!!!!! 5 months in and we couldn't be more excited!!! @miketsterling gets a mini me and #Marley gets a sidekick."

    The America's Next Top Model Cycle 3 winner also spoke to People about the news.

    "I said, 'Marley, would you like to have a little brother or sister?' And she said, 'Yes, Mom, but you know what? Maybe a baby brother. Make it a brother,'" Marcille recalled of her daughter's comments. "I thought that was adorable, but at the time, I had no idea what I was having, so my fear [about] this extremely expressive and outgoing young girl [was] if this baby came out to be a little girl, that might not be a great situation for Marley."

    She continued, "However, I found out soon after that I was having a boy, and I felt like she willed it in her favor. I'm beyond elated to be having a boy."

    So exciting! Congratulations to the growing family.

    Harvey Weinstein gave model $1M in hush money after alleged groping

    (11/21/17) Harvey Weinstein pressured a young model into taking $1 million in hush money backed by a nondisclosure agreement that she barely understood, according to a new report.

    Weinstein paid the sum to Filipina-Italian model Ambra Battilana Gutierrez in 2015 so she wouldn’t talk about an incident in which he allegedly groped her breast and tried to reach up her skirt, The New Yorker reported on Tuesday.

    “I didn’t even understand almost what I was doing with all those papers. I was really disoriented. My English was very bad,” the model said. She realized the gravity of the situation when she saw Weinstein’s lawyer’s hands shaking, she said.

    “The moment I [signed] it, I really felt it was wrong,” she added.

    She accepted the deal after working with the NYPD to secretly record Weinstein admitting to groping her. As part of Weinstein’s payout, Gutierrez was also made to sign a statement — to be released if she ever broke the non-disclosure agreement — which stated that the behavior Weinstein to which admitted on tape never happened.

    An attorney familiar with the agreement called it “the most usurious one I have seen in decades of practice,” according to New Yorker writer Ronan Farrow, who did not name the lawyer.

    Farrow, among the first to report the Weinstein scandal, also laid out connections between the private-investigation firm K2, which Weinstein hired to dig up dirt on Gutierrez, and Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr., who declined to prosecute the producer.

    Some of the K2 investigators working the case were former employees of the DA, in what two unnamed PIs described to Farrow as a “revolving door” culture between Vance’s office and private investigators.

    The NYPD was so confused when Vance’s office declined to prosecute for lack of evidence that it reviewed 10 recent criminal complaints similar to Gutierrez’s in which arrest warrants were issued despite far less evidence than in the Weinstein case.

    “They didn’t have a quarter of the evidence we had,” a law-enforcement official told Farrow, referring to the 10 cases. “All of them resulted in arrests.”

    Farrow — the estranged son of Woody Allen and whose mom is Mia Farrow — also reported that Weinstein hit up brother Bob when he needed cash to silence accusers because he did not want a big withdrawal from his own accounts to raise red flags with his wife.

    Bob cut a roughly $600,000 check that was split between former Harvey assistant Zelda Perkins and her own assistant after Perkins filed a notice of impending legal action against Harvey. Bob told Farrow he did not know about the sex-assault allegations.

    Kendall Jenner beats out Gisele as highest-paid model

    (11/21/17) Gisele Bündchen hasn’t been keeping up with Kendall Jenner.

    The 37-year-old Brazilian beauty was knocked off her pedestal this year as the millennial model snagged the No. 1 spot on Forbes’ list of highest-paid models.

    Bündchen, who had held the title since 2002, brought in $17.5 million this year while the reality TV star-turned-supermodel brought in $22 million.

    Jenner’s big payday is thanks to her deals with Estée Lauder, La Perla and Adidas. She also has money coming in from “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” and her clothing line with sister Kylie Jenner (despite the drama surrounding their T-shirts depicting late rapper Tupac Shakur in July). The aftermath of her “tone-deaf” Pepsi commercial didn’t seem to have a negative effect on her bank account either.

    Bündchen, who is married to Tom Brady, posed for Carolina Herrera fragrance and Arezzo shoes and Brazilian company Vivara.

    Other stunners who made the list include Chrissy Teigen at No. 3 and the Hadid sisters: Gigi came in fifth and Bella ninth.

    Model claims Russell Simmons forced her into sex while Brett Ratner watched

    (11/19/17) A former model claims she was just 17 when hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons forced her into sex — and all while his pal, embattled moviemaker Brett Ratner, sat by and watched, according to a bombshell report on Sunday.

    Keri Claussen Khalighi said the scary casting-couch incident happened in 1991 when she and Ratner were at Simmons’ New York home to allegedly watch a music video the men had been doing, according to the Los Angeles Times.

    That’s when Simmons allegedly made aggressive sexual advances and removed her clothes, as Ratner sat nearby.

    “I looked over at Brett and said ‘help me’ and I’ll never forget the look on his face,” the then-Nebraska teenager recalled. “In that moment, the realization fell on me that they were in it together.”

    She continued: Ratner “just sat there and watched.”

    The Simmons, who is 60, would have been 33 or 34 at the time.

    “I fought it wildly,” said Khalighi, who claimed she was eventually coerced into performing oral sex. “I guess I just acquiesced.”

    Khalighi the experience was “disgusting” and she went to take a shower — where Simmons allegedly followed her and penetrated her.

    “It hurt so much,” she said.

    The famed music executive Simmons insisted his relations with Khalighi were also consensual.

    “I know Keri Claussen Khalighi and remember the weekend in 1991 that she has referenced,” Simmons said in a statement. “Everything that happened between us 26 years ago was completely consensual and with Keri’s full participation.”

    The Def Jam records co-founder Simmons insisted he’s on the right side of Hollywood’s burgeoning debate on sexual harassment.

    “Let me be crystal clear and very direct. Abusing women in any way shape or form violates the very core of my being,” he said.

    “I have always spoken out regarding my life experiences, women’s issues and the need to bring a faster and more decisive shift in the collective consciousness that will help bring about true women’s equality.”

    Ratner’s attorney Martin Singer told the LA Times that his client has “no recollection” of Khalighi asking for help against Simmons’ moves

    A half-dozen women, including Olivia Munn and Natasha Henstridge, recently accused Ratner of sexual misconduct.

    Ratner and Simmons were investigated for an alleged sexual battery in 2001 in Beverly Hills, California, but prosecutors declined to press charges, Variety reported earlier this month.

    The entertainment and political worlds have been rocked by accusations of sexual harassment and assault, following allegations against Tinseltown titan Harvey Weinstein.

    Since allegations — dozens, spread over decades — emerged against Weinstein, other powerful men such as actor Kevin Spacey, US Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) and Senate candidate Roy Moore (R-Ala.) have been confronted by accusers.

    Pam Anderson slams Naomi Campbell over long fur coat

    (11/15/17) Vegan Pam Anderson has a beef with Naomi Campbell.

    The supermodel wore a long coat made from the pelts of at least a dozen red foxes as she strolled into the Pirelli Calendar party at the Manhattan Center last week on the arm of Sean Combs, who wore a white mink stole.

    “So many animals were anally electrocuted for this coat and sometimes skinned alive. Naomi, I adore you. I wish you wouldn’t wear fur,” Anderson said in a message to Naomi that was then relayed to me.

    “People follow you. You are a fashion icon. This is heartbreaking,” Anderson said. “Please have a heart and lose the real fur.”

    Campbell was slammed by animal lovers when she posted a photo of herself in the fur coat on Instagram. But some defended her, including one fan who wrote: “Why stop wearing fur, when it looks so damn good!?”

    Harvey Weinstein hit on Paris Hilton in the ladies’ room

    (11/7/17) Harvey Weinstein tried to make a move on Paris Hilton in the women’s bathroom at the amfAR Gala near Cannes, France, in 2001, when she was just 20 years old.

    The disgraced movie mogul, whom the NYPD on Friday said it is working to arrest for allegedly raping “Boardwalk Empire” star Paz de la Huerta, “made a beeline for Paris” when she arrived at the gala hosted by Elizabeth Taylor and sponsored by Weinstein’s Miramax Films at the restaurant Le Moulin de Mougins.

    The theme was A Diamond Is Forever, and Hilton arrived in a dress with three-quarters of a million dollars of diamonds sewn onto it.

    An eyewitness told Page Six, “As soon as Paris arrived, Harvey made a beeline for her and was all over her. He even seemed to be salivating. He used his usual line, ‘Come to my office. I want to make movies with you. I can make you a star,’?” but Hilton seemed unimpressed, said the witness, who insists he or she strongly remembers the incident because Weinstein was so aggressive.

    During the cocktail hour, Hilton went to the ladies’ room, the witness continued, and Harvey followed her in. “He was pushing the door of the stall Paris was inside, demanding she open the door, saying he ‘needed to talk to her.’ She didn’t open the door. A male event worker had seen Harvey follow Paris into the ladies’ and alerted a security guard, who went into the bathroom and ordered Harvey to leave the women’s bathroom. At first he refused, saying, ‘I’m a friend, it’s OK.’ Finally, he was muscled out, and guards stood watch over Paris all night to protect her, partly because of her very valuable diamond dress and partly to keep Harvey at bay.”

    Other guests at the gala for AIDS research included Dame Shirley Bassey, who performed, Naomi Campbell, Rosanna Arquette, David Lynch, Stephen Baldwin, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Alan Cumming. Weinstein led the charity auction and even brazenly brought Hilton onstage despite his bathroom blunder.

    Reps for Weinstein didn’t get back to us when asked for comment. Hilton declined to comment.

    Kate Upton and Justin Verlander tie the knot

    (11/5/17) For pitcher, for poorer!

    On Saturday, less than a week after the Houston Astros became World Series champions, the team’s ace Justin Verlander walked down the aisle with his bride, actress Kate Upton.

    The smitten pair celebrated their nuptials with friends and family in Italy. Upton beamed at her MVP while she wore a flowing white wedding gown.

    Verlander, 34, and Upton, 25, began dating in 2014, and announced their engagement at the 2016 Met Gala — the starry event where Upton rocked a massive diamond ring by Anita Ko.

    The actress has been an enthusiastic supporter of the Astros, showing up frequently to her husband’s baseball games during the regular and post-season — even though, as The Post recently revealed, Upton is a Yankees fan at heart.

    Kate Upton and Justin Verlander are getting married this weekend

    (11/4/17) Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model Kate Upton and pitcher Justin Verlander, who just won the World Series with the Houston Astros, will tie the knot this weekend.

    According to People magazine, the pair will wed in Italy.

    The two were seen in a passionate postgame kiss when the Astros won the World Series.

    Their engagement was made public last year at the Met Gala after Upton showed up with a giant engagement ring and revealed they’d been keeping the news under wraps.

    They began dating in 2014.

    Christie Brinkley prefers dating men her age

    (11/3/17) Christie Brinkley may look several years younger than she is, but don’t expect her to date that young.

    “I prefer [men] around my age,” the 63-year-old supermodel told Wendy Williams on Thursday. “I think five to ten years younger would be OK.”

    But, Brinkley said, one trait that doesn’t come with age is confidence.

    “Unfortunately … all the guys that are confident are really young [because] they’re so young they don’t need something on their arm to make them feel better about themselves,” she explained. “That’s a little too young.”

    The mom of three — who has had a thing for rockers in the past, having been married to Billy Joel and dated John Mellencamp — told Williams, “I like to dabble, I prefer to keep it quiet,” when it comes to her current dating life.

    And as for her ex-husband’s newborn, Brinkley can’t wait to meet her, but then give her back.

    “I’m dying to get my hands on that little Remy, and give her a squeeze and then say, ‘OK, here ya go, I’m heading out to have fun!'”

    Jill Goodacre reveals five-year battle with breast cancer

    (10/25/17) Former Victoria’s Secret model Jill Goodacre has been quietly battling breast cancer for the last five years.

    “I was scared I was going to lose her, absolutely. I wasn’t going to let her see that, but I was,” her husband of 23 years, Harry Connick Jr., told People in an interview published Wednesday.

    In 2012, Goodacre had her annual mammogram. Although it came up clear, she was told she needed to get an ultrasound as well because of her “dense breasts.”

    Goodacre, now 53, was diagnosed with Stage 1 invasive ductal carcinoma, and immediately underwent a lumpectomy and radiation.

    “I took to my bed when I found out,” she said, adding that telling her three daughters was one of the hardest parts. “When the girls all got home from school, they came up to my room and climbed in bed with me, and I told them. And just watching their faces — it was so horrible as I saw the fear dawning on them and the confusion.”

    Although Goodacre didn’t have to undergo chemotherapy, her lumpectomy results didn’t come back with “clean margins,” which meant she was due for a second surgery.

    “Radiation absolutely wiped me out,” she said. Since then she’s been taking Tamoxifen, an estrogen modulator, that immediately forced her into menopause.

    Five years later, she’s getting ready to stop taking the drug and is ready to talk about what she went through.

    “I’d never heard about dense breasts,” she said. “And if I’d only had a mammogram and walked away for the next year, things could have turned out so differently for me.”

    ‘Creepy’ Dr. Doom chases after married model Paulina Porizkova

    (10/24/17) Famed economist Nouriel Roubini is aggressively wooing supermodel Paulina Porizkova, even though she has been married to Cars frontman Ric Ocasek for 28 years.

    Roubini — nicknamed “Dr. Doom” after predicting the 2008 financial crisis — spoke at Richard Hurowitz’s hedge fund conference last week at Sotheby’s New York, where he jovially announced his new moniker should be “Dr. Boom Boom,” due to the lavish surroundings.

    However, the name seems more appropriate following Page Six’s coverage of his wild hot-tub parties attended by scores of young women and models at what one outlet uncouthly called his “vagina-walled downtown loft.”

    Witnesses at Sotheby’s said that after Roubini spoke, he chatted up Czech-born Swedish model Porizkova, 52, who was in the audience. She shot to fame in the ’80s as a cover star of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and went on to star in ad campaigns for Chanel, Versace and Christian Dior, among many others. She wed Ocasek in 1989, and they have two sons and are still happily married, according to friends.

    But that apparently didn’t deter randy Roubini, 58, who is unmarried and an NYU professor. According to a source at the event, “Roubini was all over Paulina. He was very smart but really creepy, and she was a little freaked out by it. When he asked for her e-mail, she was too polite to say no, and now he’s been messaging her saying, ‘Come to one of my famous parties.’?” The source added, “Roubini seems sort of weird — it’s not a good look to be nearly 60 and bragging about your sexy hot-tub parties.”

    We’re told Porizkova did not respond to his invite to join one of his bacchanals, which often involve models jumping into his giant Jacuzzi on the roof of his party penthouse.

    Roubini once told New York magazine of the models who attend his bashes, “They love my beautiful mind,” and that what makes his soirees so special are, “Beautiful girls .?.?. I look for 10 girls to one guy.”

    Roubini didn’t respond to e-mails and reps for Porizkova didn’t get back to us.

    Brazilian model used broken glass to fend off Weinstein

    (10/22/17) Disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein used his fashion connections as a pipeline to vulnerable women – including one who had to fend him off with jagged glass, according to a report Sunday.

    The boorish Weinstein, who is married to designer Georgina Chapman and the onetime executive producer of TV’s “Project Runway,” routinely found ways to meet privately with models, often young and from outside the United States, nearly a dozen fashion industry sources told the Los Angeles Times.

    Brazilian model Julianna De Paula recalled a particularly pervy incident a decade ago when she allegedly ended up at Weinstein’’s New York loft – and was forced to kiss other women in front of him, the paper said.

    A naked Weinstein ended up chasing her through his apartment, forcing her to use a broken glass to keep him at bay, De Paula said.

    “He looked at me, and he started to laugh,” she said. “I was shocked. I was completely in disbelief.”

    And Weinstein wasn’t shy about his alleged lascivious ways.

    Model Samantha Panagrosso recalled meeting Weinstein at the Cannes Film Festival in 2003, when the movieman allegedly started touched her legs under the water in a hotel pool.

    When she objected, the portly perv simply pointed at another model nearby and boasted, she said.

    “’Look at her, I’m going to have her come to my room for a screen test,’” Panagrosso said, quoting Weinstein.

    Weinstein’s spokeswoman, Sallie Hofmeister, repeated to the paper that her boss has “unequivocally denied” allegations of nonconsensual sex.

    She said that in the case of Brock and Panagrosso, “Their recollection of events differs from that of Mr. Weinstein.”

    Bar Refaeli and husband welcome baby girl

    (10/22/17) Bar Refaeli has welcomed a new addition to her family.

    The Israeli model, 32, gave birth to a baby girl at 10 p.m. local time on Friday night at Tel Aviv Medical Center.

    “She is feeling great,” the hospital’s spokesman, Avi Shushan, told Page Six. He also confirmed that Refaeli and her husband, Adi Ezra, named their newborn daughter Elle. “She will probably leave the hospital on Monday.”

    The couple is also parents to 1-year-old daughter, Liv.

    Refaeli is sure to be flaunting her model bod again in no time. She was spotted rocking a bikini just three weeks after giving birth to her first child.

    Penny Lancaster reveals she was drugged and raped

    (10/20/17) Former model Penny Lancaster has revealed that, as a teenager, she was drugged and raped by a fashion industry executive.

    “I had a job with a fashion designer and they took me on for a particular job and then they offered me an opportunity to meet some other people at an event they were going to and would I like to go,” Lancaster, 46, shared on Thursday’s episode of ITV’s “Loose Women,” reports the UK’s Express.

    “I was like, ‘Oh, someone might me interested. I might me able to get some more work,’ and that’s what you were out there doing as a model,” she recalled. “He was like, ‘I have to stop at my apartment and pick something up,’ and we went up to the apartment.”

    From there, Lancaster — who is now married to Rod Stewart — says the man offered to pour her a drink from his home bar. But the details after that get shaky, as Lancaster says she doesn’t even remember drinking anything.

    “I found myself facedown on the bed with him on top of me,” Lancaster tearfully said. “I couldn’t tell my mum or dad because I thought they would say to me, ‘Why did you go back to his house?’ But, he was a client I had worked with and he promised to introduce me to other people.”

    Lancaster says she was “naive” and that she “trusted” the unidentified man.

    “I can’t remember much of what happened but he he was on top of me and enjoying the experience but I certainly wasn’t,” she added.

    She tearfully pleaded for other victims to come forward.

    “Mothers, if your daughter is able to come and talk to you about it, they have to know they won’t be told off, it’s not their fault they’re not guilty, the other person is,” she said.

    Model accuses David Blaine of rape

    (10/20/17) A former model claims David Blaine raped her at his London home in 2004 — and now the magician is under investigation by British authorities, according to a report.

    Natasha Prince, who now works as an art dealer, told The Daily Beast she was just 21 when Blaine invited her over to his Chelsea pad and asked her to join him in a bedroom after giving her a cocktail.

    “He spun around quite quickly and said, ‘Kiss me.’ I did kiss him. And then he said, ‘Finish your drink’ and took the glass from me and put it on the table, and that’s really the last thing I remember,” she told the publication.

    “At some point, I was on the bed, face-forward, and he was behind me. I think it woke me up a little bit, because I’d never had that [anal sex] done to me before. I remember moving around a lot. I was limp, and I was very floaty; I was in and out of a deep sleep.”

    Prince said she felt “stoned” when she woke up naked after the alleged rape.

    “He was shirtless at the end of the bed,” she said. “And when I looked at him, he said, ‘You have really nice t-ts.’”

    Prince said she’s suffered from anxiety and low self-esteem since the alleged incident — and finally came forward to police in Nov. 2016 after years of blaming herself.

    “In my head, rape was being sober—pull her in a bush, pull down her pants and just ditch her… So I blamed myself,” she said. “I did like him. I was interested in him. So I didn’t think about going to the police.”

    Authorities told Prince last month that they’d asked Blaine to travel to England with his lawyer for an “interview under caution,” according to The Daily Beast.

    “Officers from the Met’s Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command are investigating an allegation of rape,” Scotland Yard said in a statement.

    “The allegation was reported to police on 17 November 2016 by a woman who alleged she was raped at an address in Chelsea in June or July 2004 when she was aged 21. There have been no arrests at this stage and enquiries continue.”

    Blaine’s attorney, Marty Singer, denied the allegations.

    “My client vehemently denies that he raped or sexually assaulted any woman, ever, and he specifically denies raping a woman in 2004,” he said.

    “If, in fact, there is any police investigation, my client will fully cooperate because he has nothing to hide.”

    Model Amy Elmore Shares Harrowing Personal Abuse: “It’s Time To Talk About Sexual Predators In The Modeling Business”

    (10/20/17) Amy Elmore, a model for 29 years, has experienced and witnessed years of the sexual predatory nature of men in positions of power. She was raped at the age of 17 “by a famous musician” and then as a struggling model had to face the realities of the predatory nature of fashion photographers, only to come to Hollywood to find further systemic abuse. Elmore is one of the first models to come forward, following the sexual assault allegations against mogul Harvey Weinstein, to expose the modeling industry.

    Elmore, whose face has graced the covers of Seventeen Magazine, Modern Bride, Cosmopolitan, and Elle, was only 17 when she started her career in modeling and saw the abuse at the hand of fashion photographers and the agencies that sent young models to them. When she tried to transition to become an actress at the age of 26, she was once again faced with another problem, saying, “It almost felt like a prostitution ring.”

    Elmore dabbled in acting but is now an activist for mental health and women’s empowerment. She is speaking up not only about sexual harassment in modeling but also what her transition to acting was like as a model coming into Hollywood.

    Elmore is now 46 years old and speaks to organizations like the Boys and Girls Club of America about these issues. “I was at a talk at a high school, and one young girl raised her hand and asked, ‘what should I do if it happens to me?’ And at that moment, my heart broke because I knew it had happened to her,” said Elmore. “We need to let girls and boys know that it’s okay to speak up and talk about it and get help, and there is no shame in this.”

    Here, in her own words, is what she experienced both as a young model and a young actress. As she says, “It’s time to talk about sexual predators in the modeling business”:

    I was raped when I was modeling at 17 in Tokyo by a famous musician, and I didn’t tell anyone for 20 years because I thought it was my fault. I have been speaking to The Boys and Girls Clubs and talking to other girls to give them the confidence to speak up. I’m glad all these celebrities are speaking out because it gives younger girls that confidence to speak up.

    I won the 17 contest for the Seventeen Magazine cover. I was on the cover of Cosmo and on Elle. I did better in Europe so my agency [one of the top modeling agencies in the country] wanted to send me back to Europe. It was kinda understood in the modeling business that certain girls who were dating photographers would become stars. If you slept with photographers, you would become a star. It’s the way that it worked. Not everyone, but in general, a lot of people got their careers this way. It was just kind of known. And the photographers were constantly after you for that.

    So, I said to (one of the agents at my modeling agency), I won’t sleep with anyone if I have to go (back to Europe). They said, ‘Then don’t go.’

    I grew up in the South and have morals and values. I wanted a career. I wasn’t afraid to work hard. I just wanted to do my job. They said they wanted to send me back to make me more famous. That was like in 1993. But I knew what that meant.

    I had another photographer say to me, ‘I can make you look really good or make you look really bad.’ There was a general understanding of what that meant.

    I went to Hollywood in 1996. It almost felt like a prostitution ring in Hollywood. [An agent I knew] was like, ‘This actor wants you to come to his house for a drink. If you date this producer, he’ll send you flowers once a week.’ I didn’t want to “date” him. I didn’t buy into any of this stuff. It just never felt right. There are good people out there, but there are bad people out there, too.

    I’m still a model, but I think this story needs to be told.

    Christy Turlington: Model harassment is widely tolerated

    (10/18/17) Sexual harassment and mistreatment of models have always been widely known and tolerated in the fashion industry, Christy Turlington Burns said.

    “The industry is surrounded by predators who thrive on the constant rejection and loneliness so many of us have experienced at some point in our careers. I feel fortunate that I did not personally experience anything traumatic, but also know that is not the norm,” she told Women’s Wear Daily in an interview published Wednesday.

    The former supermodel, who is married to actor-director Ed Burns, said her mother was often by her side in the early days and once she grew successful, “I was handled with extra care.”

    In hindsight, Burns said she wondered whether she served as a “honeypot,” meaning she was used to make others feel protected.

    “There were no chaperones on sets to monitor the hours worked or appropriateness of the themes of shoots and behavior of the crews, no tutors required or penalties if standards were broken,” said Turlington Burns, who was at her height as a model in the 1980s and ’90s.

    She went on to earn her master’s degree in public health and has a nonprofit organization that trains midwives in Guatemala.

    Movie Night With Karlie Kloss

    (10/17/17) Movie Night With Karlie Kloss, a six-part series of short-form interviews and games, will premiere Thursday, Dec. 28 at 6:30 pm on Freeform. Guests include tennis champ Serena Williams, actresses Rachel Bilson (Nashville) and Victoria Justice (Victorious) and supermodel Kendall Jenner, among others.

    Heidi Klum Speaks Out Against Harvey Weinstein as He's Stripped of Executive Producer Credit on Project Runway

    (10/13/17) Heidi Klum is supporting the “brave women” who have spoken out against Harvey Weinstein, who is embroiled in an ongoing sexual harassment scandal.

    “I wish I could say that the horrible stories I read about Harvey Weinstein are a rare occurrence in our society, but that is simply not the case. We would be naive to think that this behavior only happens in Hollywood,” Klum, 44, tells PEOPLE exclusively.

    “This is one example of the more pervasive problem of the mistreatment of women around the world. I think it would be hard to find a woman – myself included – who have not had an experience where they have felt intimidated or threatened by a man using his power, position or his physical stature,” the Project Runway host and judge says.

    “I truly admire these brave women who are coming forward to share their stories because change cannot come unless there is a dialogue and people are held accountable,” she concludes.

    Klum’s statements come after Weinstein, 65, was stripped of his executive producer credit on the Lifetime reality show competition.

    Since Project Runway‘s premiere in 2012, the movie mogul’s former studio, The Weinstein Company, has been co-producing the show along with Bunim-Murray Productions.

    A source tells PEOPLE it’s unclear what will happen going forward as TWC owns a majority in Project Runway.

    Weinstein’s wife, Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman has often appeared on the show as a guest judge since 2012.

    “Production is already completed on the next season of Project Runway All Stars with Georgina,” a rep for the reality Lifetime series confirmed to PEOPLE Thursday. “We have yet to determine an airdate.”

    Ashley Judd and Multiple Women Accuse Movie Mogul Harvey Weinstein of Sexual Harassment as He Announces Leave of Absence

    Weinstein has since been fired from TWC and Chapman announced she’s leaving him.

    On Sunday, eight women — including actress Ashley Judd — spoke out against Weinstein in a New York Times report, accusing him of sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior. The paper also reported that Weinstein reached private settlements with eight women, including actress Rose McGowan.

    On Tuesday, Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie and several other women added their own accounts of alleged mistreatment, and more than two dozen women have now come forward.

    Also on Tuesday, Chapman revealed in a statement to PEOPLE that she had decided to leave Weinstein in the wake of the allegations: “My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions. I have chosen to leave my husband. Caring for my young children is my first priority and I ask the media for privacy at this time.”

    Following the NYT report about the allegations, Weinstein said in a statement that he was working with therapists and planned to “deal with this issue head-on.”

    “Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein,” a spokesperson for the movie mogul has said.

    On Thursday, PEOPLE reported that Weinstein checked into a luxury resort in Arizona after jetting out of Los Angeles on Wednesday. The source said the movie mogul was staying at the five-star hotel (which boasts a spa and golf course) because “he doesn’t want to go a place where he can’t use his cell phone.”

    “His team set him up at a secure place to get him the help he needs — he knows and wants help,” said another source close to the situation.

    Cara Delevingne Says Harvey Weinstein Attempted To Kiss Her, Blocked Door

    (10/11/17) Actress/model Cara Delevingne says Harvey Weinstein tried to kiss her, asked her to kiss another woman, and attempted to block her from leaving his hotel room. The Tulip Fever star also says Weinstein asked about her sexuality and warned her that being gay “in public” would doom her Hollywood career.

    In a lengthy Instagram post (read it below), Delevingne – who does not address her sexuality in the post – said her first contact with Weinstein came when the now-disgraced mogul called to ask if she “had slept” with women.

    “When I first started to work as an actress,” Delevingne writes, “I was working on a film and I received a call from? Harvey Weinstein asking if I had slept with any of the women I was seen out with in the media. It was a very odd and uncomfortable call….i answered none of his questions and hurried off the phone but before I hung up, he said to me that If I was gay or decided to be with a woman especially in public that I’d never get the role of a straight woman or make it as an actress in Hollywood.”

    She then recounts how a hotel room meeting with Weinstein quickly turned from professional to inappropriate.

    “He walked me to the door and stood in front of it and tried to kiss me on the lips. I stopped him and managed to get out of the room.”

    Here is the full message:

    When I first started to work as an actress, i was working on a film and I received a call from? Harvey Weinstein asking if I had slept with any of the women I was seen out with in the media. It was a very odd and uncomfortable call….i answered none of his questions and hurried off the phone but before I hung up, he said to me that If I was gay or decided to be with a woman especially in public that I’d never get the role of a straight woman or make it as an actress in Hollywood. A year or two later, I went to a meeting with him in the lobby of a hotel with a director about an upcoming film. The director left the meeting and Harvey asked me to stay and chat with him. As soon as we were alone he began to brag about all the actresses he had slept with and how he had made their careers and spoke about other inappropriate things of a sexual nature. He then invited me to his room. I quickly declined and asked his assistant if my car was outside. She said it wasn’t and wouldn’t be for a bit and I should go to his room. At that moment I felt very powerless and scared but didn’t want to act that way hoping that I was wrong about the situation. When I arrived I was relieved to find another woman in his room and thought immediately I was safe. He asked us to kiss and she began some sort of advances upon his direction. I swiftly got up and asked him if he knew that I could sing. And I began to sing….i thought it would make the situation better….more professional….like an audition….i was so nervous. After singing I said again that I had to leave. He walked me to the door and stood in front of it and tried to kiss me on the lips. I stopped him and managed to get out of the room. I still got the part for the film and always thought that he gave it to me because of what happened. Since then I felt awful that I did the movie. I felt like I didn’t deserve the part. I was so hesitant about speaking out….I didn’t want to hurt his family. I felt guilty as if I did something wrong. I was also terrified that this sort of thing had happened to so many women I know but no one had said anything because of fear.

    In a second Instagram post today, Delevingne said, “I want women and girls to know that being harassed or abused or raped is NEVER their fault and not talking about it will always cause more damage than speaking the truth. I am relieved to be able to share this….i actually feel better and I’m proud of the women who are brave enough to speak….this isn’t easy but there are strength in our numbers. As I said, this is only the beginning. In every industry and especially in Hollywood, men abuse their power using fear and get away with it. This must stop. The more we talk about it, the less power we give them. I urge you all to talk and to the people who defend these men, you are part of the problem”

    Eva Marcille Joins Real Housewives of Atlanta Cast for Season 10

    (9/30/17) It's the Real Housewives of Atlanta-America's Next Top Model crossover we never knew we needed.

    E! News can confirm Eva Marcille, who won cycle 3 of the Tyra Banks-hosted reality competition in 2004, is joining the Bravo series for season 10. Eva isn't an official housewife, though, and will be featured as a friend.

    "I'm so excited to join NeNe [Leakes] and the ladies for the 10th season of RHOA," the 32-year-old told Us Weekly. "Atlanta and America, get ready!"

    Bravo dropped the first trailer for the upcoming season just days ago, which focused on Nene's widely-anticipated return since she last signed up for a full-time season in 2015.

    E! News previously reported Phaedra Parks would not return to the reality series, though seasoned RHOA veterans Sheree Whitfield, Kandi Burruss, Porsha Williams, Kenya Moore and Cynthia Baileywill certainly bring the drama (and Georgia peaches!) as per usual.

    Kim Zolciak-Biermann is also expected to make a few guest appearances along the way, and things get intense between her and Kenya.

    So what is there to know about Eva? After being named America's Next Top Model, the light-eyed bombshell went on to star on The Young and the Restless as well as films including Crossover, I Think I Love My Wife and Sister Code.

    The Real Housewives of Atlanta returns November 5 at 9 p.m. on Bravo.

    Bella Hadid speaks her mind on immigration

    (9/27/17) Bella Hadid may only be 20 years old, but she’s proving to be wise beyond her years.

    The kid sister to Gigi Hadid and daughter of Yolanda Hadid has strong opinions when it comes to President Donald Trump’s stance on immigration.

    “My dad was a refugee,” Hadid tells Harper’s Bazaar Arabia of her billionaire father and architect Mohamed Hadid. “He came from Palestine to America when he was a baby.”

    “Thankfully, he was able to come, but it was very hard and now it’s probably 100 times harder,” she added. “It makes me sad that power is getting taken from a lot of people and they’re not able to make a new life for their children and their families. It’s crazy to me that one person can tell you whether or not you can have a better life.”

    It’s because of her strong sense of self and the world that enabled her to forgo security and join the No Ban, No Wall protest in New York City earlier this year. “I just wanted to stand up for what I felt was right and I really didn’t care if I was with 100,000 other people because, with or without security, I wanted to go and stand for something I believe in,” she said. “Nobody was even looking.”

    Now Hadid has confessed she’s seeing how superficial modeling can be. “It’s not very giving, being a model, it doesn’t warm your heart,” Hadid said. “It’s not as rewarding for the soul as most things.”

    Thus, she’s planning to use her growing platform to make a real difference in the world.

    “Since I was a kid I’ve loved helping people,” she said. “My mom always said that I would go on the street and hug somebody that was sitting on the corner. It was just because I genuinely loved people, and that’s something that I want to bring forward with me in my career. If I’m able to change something in the world for the better, then I’ll be ecstatic.”

    Hilary Rhoda and mom’s bitter legal battle heading to trial

    (9/26/17) Model Hilary Rhoda and her mother, Marianne, are headed to trial on Oct. 23 after a bitter legal dispute that’s dragged on for years.

    In 2014, Rhoda — who’s modeled for Valentino, Givenchy and Gucci — sued her mom, alleging she stole six figures while acting as her manager and “manipulated her familial role to improperly seize — and then abuse — enormous power over Hilary’s finances.”

    Marianne filed a countersuit demanding that Hilary fork over $2 million in benefits and savings that Marianne says were illegally withheld from her.

    She also slammed Hilary’s volatile former-hockey-player hubby Sean Avery’s employment as “sporadic.”

    Naomi, Cindy, Helena and more ‘90s supermodels reunite for Versace

    (9/23/17) (Photo) Supermodels of the 1990s fashion world reunited on the Versace runway for Milan Fashion Week to honor the late designer.

    Carla Bruni, 49, Claudia Schiffer, 47, Naomi Campbell, 47, Cindy Crawford, 51, and Helena Christensen, 48, all wore gold slip gowns that aligned with early looks of Gianni Versace, who was slain 20 years ago.

    They strutted their stuff to the soundtrack of George Michael’s “Freedom! ’90” — Campbell and Crawford both starred in the music video for the hit song.

    Before making their way down the runway with Donatella Versace, the women struck a pose at the front of the stage.

    “I can’t even describe the feelings I had today,” Crawford wrote on Instagram with a picture of her with her fellow models along with Donatella Versace. “Thank you @Donatella_Versace for allowing us to pay tribute to Gianni and #Versace. Such a moment!”

    Crawford’s daughter Kaia took the same runway shortly before her, continuing her Fashion Week takeover.

    Kylie Jenner is pregnant

    (9/23/17) Kylie Jenner is expecting her first child, a source confirms to Page Six. Her boyfriend is rapper Travis Scott.

    The 20-year-old makeup mogul and Scott, 25, have reportedly been dating since April, when they were seen holding hands at the Coachella music festival and walking arm in arm at Bentley University in Massachusetts, where Scott performed at the school’s Spring Day concert.

    A source tells us that she is expecting a baby girl. “She has been looking pregnant for about four months,” says the insider.

    The pair have already proved their permanent love for each other with ink. They Snapchatted new, matching butterfly tattoos on their ankles in June.

    In a 2016 clip of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” Kylie says 25 is a good age to have kids, with her father, Caitlyn, stating that 30 is a good age. “I feel like 30 is too late. Every psychic said that I’m only going to have two kids,” she responds.

    During a Q&A on Snapchat in October, the “Life of Kylie” star says, “I’m getting a lot of questions about kids. How many kids do I want? Do I want kids? And I do want kids, but not now.”

    A year later, Kylie is about to become a mother and is rumored to be due in February. Reportedly, Scott has been excitedly telling friends, but Jenner’s ex, rapper Tyga, posted and deleted a Snapchat of the news with the caption, “Hell nah that’s my kid,” along with a number of devil emojis.

    Jenner was dating Tyga — who fathered a child with Blac Chyna — for two years, splitting with him this past April.

    Sister Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, who are parents to daughter North, 4, and son Saint, 21 months, are also reportedly expecting via a surrogate. Their third child is said to be due in late January.

    Sounds like an excellent plotline for a TV show.

    Kourtney Kardashian has three children with Scott Disick: Mason, Penelope, and Reign. And brother Rob has reached an agreement for custody of his 10-month-old daughter with Chyna, Dream Kardashian.

    A request for comment was not immediately returned, although we hear the family is expected to confirm the news.

    Kate Moss has a passion for interior design

    Model Kate Moss has a new hustle — interior decorating.

    In the runway-themed September issue of Architectural Digest, Moss is pictured leaning seductively up against a wall of her London home that’s adorned with ornate wallpaper she designed with English decorators de Gournay.

    “I don’t want to say I’m a control freak,” Moss told the magazine. “But I’m a control freak.”

    The photos were shot by Moss’s on-again, off-again beau, Count Nikolai von Bismarck.

    Moss, 43, and von Bismarck, 30, have been dating for more than a year, kicking things off not long after Moss split with her rocker ex-husband, Jamie Hince.

    Nikolai’s great-great-grandfather, Otto von Bismarck, was the 19th-century German chancellor who unified the country.

    The UK Sun has reported that Nikolai’s parents, Debonnaire and Leopold, see Kate as a “bad influence” on their little count.

    Naomi Campbell calls out British Vogue for lack of diversity

    Naomi Campbell criticized British Vogue after it published a photo of its very white editorial staff in its September issue.

    “This is the staff photo .?.?. under the previous editor” Alexandra Schulman, Campbell captioned the pic on Instagram. “Looking forward to an inclusive and diverse staff now that [Edward Enninful] is the editor.”

    Campbell’s a contributing editor under Enninful, who started on Aug. 1. Changes included firing Vogue vet Lucinda Chambers, who wrote an essay slamming the mag.

    The Marines make Kate Upton work for it

    (Pic) The U.S. Marines put supermodel Kate Upton through her paces on Tuesday during a workout in Detroit to promote the upcoming Marine Week celebration in the city.

    Upton struggled a bit at the end, but was able to complete the training routine that involved a series of aerobic exercises and running as her fiancé, Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander, watched from afar. Upton joined several other Tigers players’ wives and significant others in the session at Wayne State University’s athletic complex that was led by Gunnery Sgt. Sara Pacheco, a Marine Corps fitness instructor.

    “It was (a) very hard workout,” Upton said following the exercise session, which she concluded by collapsing to the grass in an exhausted embrace with a fellow workout warrior. “I knew it was going to be hard. The Marines are very tough.”

    Verlander, a former American League most valuable player and winner of the Cy Young award as the league’s top pitcher, said afterward that he was proud of Upton for her efforts.

    “I think it’s easy to show your support with words. I think going out there and doing that workout I think really shows how much she supports (the military),” Verlander said. He is the founder of the Wins for Warriors charity that supports military service members and their families.

    Upton, a world-famous model who has appeared three times on the cover of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, was on hand to promote Marine Week, which runs Sept. 6-10, and is designed to provide the public with a better understanding of the Corps and its mission and the chance to connect with hundreds of Marines.

    Susan Lucci, Christie Brinkley, more to act out autobiography scenes in East Hampton

    (newsday.com) She may be best known for her role as Erica Kane on the daytime soap opera “All My Children,” but on Friday, Susan Lucci will portray a member of the first family — America’s and reality TV’s — in “Celebrity Autobiography” at Guild Hall in East Hampton.

    Lucci, Brooke Shields, Christie Brinkley and Mario Cantone are among the local talents who will act out passages from celebrity memoirs at the one-night-only event. Rounding out the comedic ensemble are Scott Adsit, Ali Wentworth, Alan Zweibel and the show’s creator, Eugene Pack, and co-developer, Dayle Reyfel.

    Now in its eighth year, the Off-Broadway show uses text from tell-all, self-help, fitness and even best-selling cook books for each of its 90-minute performances.

    “It’s so important to point out that this is not a mean-spirited show,” Pack says. “What it makes fun of is not a particular celebrity; it makes fun of the idea that everyone — if you’re famous — you write a book.”

    Pack had the idea for “Celebrity Autobiography” after he came across a used hardcover edition of “Vanna White Speaks” by the “Wheel of Fortune” letter turner.

    “I read a passage out loud to myself, this dramatic passage where she writes about how challenging it is to flip the panels on the ‘Wheel of Fortune’ and one day her belt broke on national television and she held on to that loop and she kept flipping those panels,” says Pack, who, along with Reyfel, selects excerpts for the mashups and duels in “Celebrity Autobiography.”

    Pack thought if read aloud, it would speak for itself and entertain national audiences because celebrity-written books often yield amusing nuggets.

    “You’re thinking, ‘Who wrote these, who were the editors, how did this get past step one?’ when you hear what people write about,” Pack says.

    Participants do not rehearse for “Celebrity Autobiography.” In most cases, the talent will practice on the same day of their performances. It’s this spontaneity that producers believe resonates in each reading.

    “Watching the performers on stage have such a great time, doing something so simple, is something that audiences love,” Pack says.

    Cindy Crawford would have been a teacher if not a model

    (Video) Cindy Crawford once planned to enrich young minds.

    Appearing on Vogue’s 73 Questions, the iconic supermodel revealed she would have been a teacher had her modeling career not taken off. But as her 15-year-old daughter Kaia Gerber continues to take the fashion industry by storm, she offered a few words of wisdom to emerging stars.

    “Be on time and stay off your phone,” she said.

    Crawford, 51, also briefly explained how she once accidentally shared a bed with George Clooney, her husband Rande Gerber’s business partner in Casamigos. As expected, the $1 billion tequila brand played a part.

    “Let’s just chalk that up to Casamigos,” Crawford said.

    Crawford previously spoke of the incident on “Conan” in December 2015.

    “George is very well-behaved now that he is married to the lovely Amal [Clooney], but there was a time before he met Amal that he and Rande had gone out, they did ask me if I wanted to come, but I stayed home, it was a Sunday night and I stayed home with the kids,” Crawford shared. “Sometimes if Rande goes out late, he’ll go to the guest room, because the kids will end up falling asleep with me in my room.”

    After getting up to check on her spouse of 19 years, she saw him face-down on the bed with his motorcycle boots still on.

    “So I go over and I’m like, ‘Hey babe,’ and he looks and it wasn’t Rande, it was George. And I don’t know who was more shocked, me or George.”

    Joan Smalls To Make Acting Debut In Netflix Film ‘Set It Up’

    Supermodel Joan Smalls is set for her first acting gig in the Netflix original feature Set It Up, with Claire Scanlon at the helm. She joins Zoey Deutch, Lucy Liu, Glen Powell, and Taye Diggs in the romantic comedy, which will be out next year.

    The pic centers on Harper (Deutch) and Charlie (Powell), two overworked and underpaid assistants who are wasting their youth working for superiors who treat them like dirt. The two concoct a plan to solve this problem by setting up their respective bosses with each other but things start to go awry as they discover that what started out as a harmless plan could lead to some unanticipated consequences. Smalls will play Charlie’s girlfriend Suze.

    Katie Silberman wrote the screenplay, which Justin Nappi and Juliet Berman of Treehouse Pictures are producing.

    Smalls is repped by Untitled Entertainment, WME, and IMG.

    Linda Evangelista’s advice for surviving Hollywood

    Linda Evangelista has warned her younger cousin Christine Evangelista, who stars on E!’s “The Arrangement,” to “be conscious about the people I surround myself with.”

    Christine tells Social Life Magazine, “I love how [New York] is removed from the Hollywood scene, especially because of the premise of my TV show, where everyone talks about glamour and power couples. I really just try and stay out of it.”

    She’ll host the mag’s polo match at the Southampton Polo Club on June 24.

    Petra Nemcova recalls memories of late fiancé

    Petra Nemcova — who lost her late fiancé Simon Atlee in the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami — told Page Six at her Happy Hearts Fund gala, “My favorite memory of Simon are his beautiful blue eyes and his big smile.”

    She founded the charity after surviving the natural disaster.

    “I think he was ‘the One’ for that moment, and I believe that sometimes you can have two soulmates and everybody comes into your life for a reason. I know he would want me to be happy,” said the supermodel, who’s single after dating former Haitian Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe.

    Elle Macpherson splits from billionaire husband

    Elle Macpherson and her billionaire husband, Jeff Soffer, have split, sources in Miami exclusively tell Page Six.

    “Elle and Jeff are definitely over,” a source said of the couple, who were married in 2013, after a notoriously on-again, off-again romance. “She has left their house at Indian Creek in Miami with her kids, and is looking for her own house in Miami. He has been linked to some other women, but insists they are just friends.”

    Macpherson has two teenage sons, Flynn and Aurelius Cy, from her relationship with hedge funder Arpad Busson. She was also previously married to fashion photographer Gilles Bensimon.

    The Australian supermodel — nicknamed “The Body” — and Soffer dated for two years and split for eight months before getting engaged in 2012. At the time, Page Six reported that Soffer — whose father, Donald, is also a real estate mogul — had a change of heart about the relationship after he cheated death in a chopper crash in which his best friend, Lance Valdez, died.

    They eloped in 2013, marrying in Fiji in what was described as an “intimate ceremony” with just a few family members and friends present.

    Reps for both Soffer and Macpherson declined to comment.

    Why Carol Alt can’t part with her Tribeca apartment

    Supermodel Carol Alt would like to sell her Tribeca apartment — but she’s forever tied to it because of a thoughtful gift from her late brother, Tony.

    “My brother — God rest his soul — gave me a housewarming gift of three closets.”

    At Petra Nemcova’s “Graduation Gala” for the Happy Hearts Fund at One World Observatory, Alt told us that Tony, who passed away in 2005, “did the entire closet so I have shoe cubbies, shoe archives, boot cubbies [and] wall hangings of bags.”

    She added, “Every time I go into that closet I think of him. When I thought about selling my apartment once I just realized that I can’t do it.”

    Miranda Kerr Marries Snapchat’s Evan Spiegel in Intimate Ceremony

    After a whirlwind romance, Miranda Kerr and Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel are officially husband and wife!

    The couple tied the knot in front of family and friends at their home in Brentwood, Calif., earlier today, E! News can confirm.

    E! News can also report that the wedding had less than 50 guests.

    "It was a small intimate wedding," says a source, who added that the bride looked regal and like a "natural princess."

    In addition to being an intimate affair it was also an emotional one. Both the bride and groom had tears in their eyes, according to the insider.

    "The vows were beautiful," said the wedding goer.

    As for the guest list for the exclusive event? Mostly high-profile attendees and some models, adds the source.

    According to another wedding guest, people arrived at 4 p.m. and were served cocktails in an open air tent. A pianist played "When You Wish Upon a Star," and was later joined by a string quartet. The ceremony began at 4:40 p.m. and lasted 20 minutes. At the end of the nuptials, the crowd cheered. The decor was rustic chic with farmhouse tables, white benches and chairs and light pink garden roses.

    "Everything was done elegantly," said the guest.

    In between the ceremony and reception, Miranda had her makeup touched up by makeup artist Lisa Storey.

    In June of last year, the Aussie model announced that she was engaged to the tech mogul after one year of dating one another.

    E! News caught up with the brunette beauty recently where she gushed about why she's completely head over heels in love with her now-husband.

    "He's just a really kind person and very genuine and very authentic and I really appreciate that about him," she explained before adding, "And also, he's very intelligent."

    This marks the second marriage for Kerr, who was previously married to Orlando Bloom for three years.

    They married in 2010 and subsequently split up in October of 2013. The two have one child together, a son named Flynn.

    For Spiegel, however, this marks his very first marriage.

    So after wedding bells comes…baby news, perhaps? Well, Kerr did admit that she's open to the idea of expanding her family with her new hubby.

    "I am very content with having just one [child], but I am definitely open to the possibility of having more. [Flynn] will often say, ‘My friends have brothers or sisters, will I have a brother or sister one day?' I say, ‘Maybe, honey.'"

    Only time will tell, but until then, we wish Mr. and Mrs. Spiegel all the best on their exciting wedding news.

    E! News has reached out to a rep for the model.

    Naomi Campbell celebrates birthday with ‘low-key’ yacht party

    Naomi Campbell celebrated her 47th birthday aboard a 282-foot yacht, Chakra, in Cannes on Monday.

    But unlike in years past, it was a smaller, more low-key affair.

    The supermodel was in town to host her Fashion for Relief fund-raising show, which took place on Sunday.

    Naomi’s birthday bashes have been known as over-the-top fêtes during the film festival — last year’s lavish celebration was at a chateau.

    This time, we’re told Naomi arrived late, and headed to a private room, which was sealed off by security.

    Billionaire Paul Allen also toned down his annual yacht party on the same night, bringing out his “small” boat, the 303-foot Tatoosh, rather than his usual 414-foot monster, Octopus.

    Unlike past parties, there was no theme, but starry guests included Salma Hayek, Pamela Anderson and Lindsay Lohan, and Allen did, per tradition, provide the entertainment by playing guitar with a band.

    Perhaps still confused from her Oscars flub, Faye Dunaway snapped at one guest who asked why she was in Cannes: “To learn about movies.”

    Kate Moss working on George Michael documentary

    George Michael‘s final years were shrouded in mystery as he became increasingly reclusive.

    Now fans of the late icon will find out how the troubled star really lived — and they’ve got his close mate Kate Moss to thank.

    Moss has been spotted at the property with a film crew for a documentary, titled “Freedom,” which will take cameras inside Michael’s north London home for the first time.

    The doc was conceived before his death but is now being re-shot to reflect his unexpected passing at Christmas.

    Producers hope it will provide the definitive tribute to Michael, whose death left a raft of unanswered questions about how he spent his life.

    A source revealed: “Kate was filming at the house on Monday and the documentary will also feature other major stars who were close to George. Kate and George were friends for years and knew each other really well. They lived just a few seconds walk away and Kate would hang out with him.”

    “She slipped into the house through the back door with the crew to avoid causing a scene as there are still fans who go there to pay tribute. Everything was kept very hushed. Filming at his home will give fans an insight like never before. Many of them have have never been able to go through the keyhole to see where he actually spent his time. Kate hardly ever does interviews, especially not on camera, but this is something she’s really passionate about. It’s being made by his best friend David Austin. It will be an incredible tribute to George’s life.”

    The documentary, which Sony Music is behind, will air later this year on UK Channel 4 – having been postponed because of his death.

    It also features footage of his final concert performance.

    With Moss involved and more stars still to get involved, it’s bound to be a fascinating watch.

    Life-Size Sequel, Starring Tyra Banks, Coming to Freeform as Holiday Event

    Freeform wants you to shine bright, shine far and be a star all over again.

    In advance of its upfront presentation on Wednesday, the network announced a sequel to Life-Size, the 2000 movie about a doll (played by Tyra Banks) that comes to life after a young girl (Lindsay Lohan) attempts to resurrect her mother via a magic spell.

    Along with serving as an executive producer, Banks will reprise her role as living-doll Eve in the movie — appropriately titled Life-Size 2 — which will air as part of Freeform’s “25 Days of Christmas” lineup in 2018. Here’s a quick synopsis of the holiday sequel:

    In the sequel, everyone’s favorite doll Eve has grown up. This time, she’s magically awoken to help a young woman learn to live and love again, and along the way, Eve herself will experience the ups and downs of real life in a fun, edgy, modern Christmas movie.

    Curiously, the synopsis doesn’t reveal the name of the young woman in question. (I know it’s a long shot, but I’m crossing my fingers that it’s a grown-up version of Lohan’s character, even if she isn’t played by Lohan herself.)

    Chrissy Teigen pays fan’s beauty school tuition

    Chrissy Teigen’s heart is as big as her wallet.

    On Saturday, the supermodel donated $5,605 toward a fan’s costs for beauty school.

    Mercedes Edney, from Charlotte, North Carolina, started a crowd-funding page in hopes of raising $5,995 to attend Academy of Nail Technology & Esthetics.

    “If you have followed me on social media or my business pages, you know what my goal is,” Edney stated in the description. “I wanted to further my skin care knowledge by getting my license in esthetics.”

    After several small donations, Teigen swooped in and paid the remaining costs to ease her worries.

    “I’ve seen this be your passion for such a long time now,” Teigen wrote along with her donation. “So excited to see you fulfill your dream!”

    Edney was moved to tears after learning Teigen covered her costs. “I have been crying all night and I cried in the office this morning as I paid my downpayment for esthetician school,” she wrote on Instagram. “I haven’t been this happy in a very long time. Thank you Chrissy and thank you to everyone else who voted or rtd my link or have supported me this entire time.”

    As of Sunday, she’s raised $6,410.

    Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk Give Birth to First Baby

    Bradley Cooper is now a dad, which clearly makes Irina Shayk a mom ... which means they've had their kid.

    The baby was born 2 weeks ago, but kept under wraps, this according to People.

    It's baby #1 for both Bradley and Irina, who have been dating for 2 years.

    No word on whether it's a boy or girl.

    Bella Hadid: ‘I am proud to be a Muslim’

    Donald Trump‘s “Muslim ban” didn’t sit well with Bella Hadid.

    “My dad was a refugee when he first came to America, so it’s actually very close to home for my sister and brother and me,” she said in the summer issue of Porter magazine.

    The 20-year-old model added, “He was always religious, and he always prayed with us. I am proud to be a Muslim.”

    Hadid’s father, Mohamed Hadid, 68, was born in Nazareth, Israel, and lived in Syria and Lebanon before his family came to America when he was 14 years old. The real estate mogul is now reportedly worth $200 million.

    Bella and her sister Gigi, 21, marched in a protest against the immigration ban in February.

    “I come from a really diverse background,” she told Elle after the march, “I’ve had incredible experiences all over the world … and I’ve learned that we’re all just people, and we all deserve respect and kindness. We shouldn’t treat people as if they don’t deserve kindness just because of their ethnicities. It’s just not right. And that message — to be compassionate whenever possible — that’s so important to me.”

    DUI case against Stephanie Seymour might be dismissed

    A Connecticut judge is set to decide whether to dismiss a drunken driving case against supermodel Stephanie Seymour.

    The 48-year-old former Victoria’s Secret and Sports Illustrated model is to appear Tuesday in Stamford Superior Court.

    The case could be dismissed if she has successfully completed alcohol abuse treatment, attended Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and met with victims of drunken driving accidents. The conditions are part of diversionary programs approved by a judge.

    Police say Seymour backed her sport utility vehicle into another car on a highway exit ramp in her hometown of Greenwich in January 2016. Officers say she refused sobriety tests, was unsteady, had bloodshot eyes and smelled of alcohol.

    Seymour also was charged with crashing into a utility pole and leaving the scene of another accident the same day.

    ‘ANTM’: Tyra Banks Does Away With The Contestant Age Limit

    Tyra Banks is doing without the contestant age limit for America’s Next Top Model’s 24th cycle and second on VH1. The model and producer announced the news via Twitter, saying in a video that they are removing the previous 27 years and younger age requirement.

    “There have been 23 cycles of America’s Next Top Model, and every single cycle we say you have to be 27 years old or younger,” Banks stated in the video. “You know what I hear all the time? ‘Tyra, come on! Why have an age limit?’ So, you know what? I’m taking that age limit off. You want to audition for America’s Next Top Model? I don’t care how old you are, honey. You just need to know how to smize and be open to learning how to work the runway like a supermodel."

    Banks, who hosted all 22 seasons of ANTM on UPN and the CW, is returning as host of the modeling competition show. She will also continue to executive produce alongside Ken Mok. Production for the new cycle will begin this summer.

    Additionally, Banks was also recently named the new host of America’s Got Talent, replacing Nick Cannon.

    Alessandra Ambrosio Returns For ‘Daddy’s Home’ Sequel

    Following a cameo in the 2015 comedy Daddy’s Home, supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio is set to return, this time in a more prominent role, in Paramount’s upcoming Daddy’s Home 2, which has Mark Wahlberg, Will Ferrell reprising their roles as well as new additions Mel Gibson and John Lithgow. In the sequel, father and stepfather, Dusty (Wahlberg) and Brad (Ferrell), are now working together to give their kids a perfect Christmas, however, upon the arrival of Dusty’s dad (Gibson) and Brad’s dad (Lithgow), their blended family conflicts rise to the surface. Sean Anders is directing a script he wrote with John Morris. Ferrell, Adam McKay, Chris Henchy and Kevin Messick are producing with Morris. Ambrosio, who appeared in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, is repped by WME and Stone Village Management.

    America's Next Top Model: Tyra Banks Returning as Host, Replacing Rita Ora

    Tyra Banks is now in the running to become America’s top host.

    Just days after NBC announced that Banks will replace Nick Cannon as the host of America’s Got Talent, VH1 on Thursday revealed that she will also return to her former perch, replacing Rita Ora as the host of America’s Next Top Model for its upcoming 24th cycle.

    “Tyra has always been the heart and soul of the franchise and her absence was deeply felt by our fiercely loyal fans who missed their Queen of the Smize,” executive producer Ken Mok says in a statement. “We’d like to thank Rita Ora for being a great partner and total pro. She infused this new iteration of ANTM with passion and creativity and we wish her nothing but the best in her future endeavors.”

    Banks hosted the first 22 cycles of Top Model, which aired on UPN from 2003 to 2006, then on The CW from 2006 to 2015. Ora was named the new host when the show was picked up for additional seasons on VH1 in 2016. New panelists will be announced at a later date.

    Cara Delevingne is writing a novel

    Get ready to see Cara Delevingne‘s name in an unexpected place: bookshelves.

    The model, 24, announced on Tuesday that she’s putting out her first novel, writing on Instagram, “Another pinch me moment!! Announcing my first novel Mirror, Mirror, coming out this October! SO EXCITED !!!”

    She described the plot as a “twisty coming-of-age story” about four 16-year-old friends “trying to figure out who they are and navigate the minefield of school and relationships. Until it all changes one day… (que scary music ??).”

    The book is currently available for pre-order on Amazon in the UK and France.

    She called the process of “putting this novel together” life-changing and “something I hold really close to my heart.”

    She also wants to start a virtual book club: “Cause I want us to talk about this time in life, self discovery, friendship, pain, triumph!! Being a teenager!! The experiences that shape YOU!”

    In recent years, the supermodel has also delved into acting in films such as “Suicide Squad” and “Paper Towns.”

    The book comes out on Oct. 5.

    Tyra Banks Replacing Nick Cannon as Host of America's Got Talent

    Instead of looking for America’s Next Top Model, Tyra Banks will now be on the lookout for America’s next big Talent.

    The former ANTM host has been tapped to succeed Nick Cannon as host of America’s Got Talent. The announcement was made on Sunday by judge Howie Mandel, who took to Twitter to welcome Banks to the AGT family.

    Departing host Cannon had been with AGT since 2009. He previously announced in a lengthy Facebook post on Feb. 13 that he had decided to part ways with NBC — and thus forfeit his hosting duties on AGT — after he allegedly received backlash from the network over a joke he made during a recent stand-up special on Showtime.

    “Sometimes I wish I could say the stuff I really want to say,” Cannon said during his special. “Y’all see my face on America’s Got Talent? Like, this next crazy motherf–er coming to the stage gonna be juggling blindfolded with knives and s–t, so n–as be careful! But I can’t say that. I can’t talk like that. That would mess up the white money.” (You can watch the full, uncensored joke here.)

    When Cannon received word that NBC was allegedly considering firing him as a result of his rant, he decided to pull his own plug.

    Banks, of course, has plenty of hosting experience. In addition to America’s Next Top Model, the former supermodel had an eponymous daytime talk show for five seasons, before ending the program in 2010. She also served as an executive producer and panelist on ABC’s one-and-done talker FABLife, and most recently served as an advisor on the Arnold Schwarzenegger-fronted season of Celebrity Apprentice.

    Filming on Season 12 of America’s Got Talent is set to commence this month, with the judging panel of Mandel, Mel B., Simon Cowell and Heidi Klum remaining intact.

    Have at it, AGT fans: Is Banks a good replacement for Cannon?

    Gigi Hadid Featured on First-Ever Vogue Arabia Cover

    (Cover) Gigi Hadid just took another big step in her modeling career—and this time, it has a very personal meaning.

    The supermodel covers Vogue Arabia's very first issue, celebrating her Palestinian roots while posing in a jewel-embroidered headscarf.

    "I think the beautiful thing about there being international Vogue's is that, as a fashion community, we are able to celebrate, and share with the world, different cultures," she wrote, sharing the publication's black and white cover. "Being half-Palestinian, it means the world to me to be on the first-ever cover(s) of @voguearabia, and I hope that this magazine will show another layer of the fashion industry's desire to continue to accept, celebrate, and incorporate all people & customs and make everyone feel like they have fashion images and moments they can relate to... & learn and grow in doing so."

    She continued, thanking those involved in helping with making the cover. "Thank you @deenathe1st for your vision and for having me on this cover... by the incredible @inezandvinoodh - so much love."

    For those of you who don't already know, Gigi is the daughter of Yolanda Hadid and the Palestinian real estate developer Mohamed Hadid.

    She's previously discussed her background in interviews and on social media.

    For example, in 2015, she shared photos of henna tattoos on her hands and stopped any critics it their footsteps.

    "Before you go all 'cultural appropriation' in my comments, check out the last name," she captioned the post. "Hadid. Half Palestinian & proud of it."

    Just last year, she also opened up to Gulf News about being Arab and visiting the Middle East.

    "I love it here and I love going to places that remind me of my dad's side of the family," she told the publication. "I especially love it when you meet other Arabs. There's such a sense of family regardless of whether you are blood related or not anywhere in the world. When someone comes up to me and they tell me, 'I'm Palestinian' and we make a connection, it's beautiful."

    Adriana Lima wanted to be a nun

    Before Adriana Lima was a Victoria’s Secret’s Angel, she wanted to be a nun.

    That could explain why the 35-year-old Brazilian-born model told Ocean Drive she always brings a Bible to read backstage before shows and goes to church “every day.” However, she’s not exactly talking about any chapel.

    “The church is in me — I always connect,” she said. “If you’re connected with the divine and always have pure intentions with everything you’re doing, you’re protected by the angels. I’m very spiritual. I believe in nature, I believe in energy, I believe in spirits.”

    Lima grew up as a devout Roman Catholic and went to church every Sunday before she found fame with the lingerie retailer. And despite her success, she hasn’t given up on her faith, especially when it comes to another form of other-worldly beings.

    “I don’t picture them as, like, coming to get me or abducting humans,” explained Lima on believing in aliens. “I imagine they maybe look like us but with a higher intelligence and connection to the universe.”

    Karlie Kloss and Natalia Vodianova co-host fundraiser

    Models Natalia Vodianova and Karlie Kloss hosted a charity “Fabulous Fund Fair” on Tuesday night at London’s Roundhouse to benefit Vodianova’s Naked Heart Foundation.

    Artist Camille Walala created a fair with games that featured models Doutzen Kroes, Lily Donaldson and Arizona Muse.

    Actress Kristin Scott Thomas gave tarot readings and told Lara Stone her fortune “in full Method-acting mode.”

    Model Erin O’Connor dove headfirst into a Guerlain ball pit for a prize.

    Why Naomi Campbell once threw eggs at George Michael’s van

    Naomi Campbell threw eggs at George Michael’s van back in the day, because she was a Boy George fan.

    But Michael ultimately won her over by convincing her to appear in his famed “Freedom ’90” video.

    At a Q&A with Town & Country’s Stellene Volandes, Campbell explained: “I knew [Michael] before the ‘Freedom [’90]’ video. I used to throw eggs at his van because I was a big Culture Club fan. I was in two Culture Club videos.”

    Years later, when Michael was casting his “Freedom ’90” video — which ultimately starred Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington and Cindy Crawford — Campbell recalled, “Michael came up to me at this club in LA and said, ‘The girls are holding out on me, and I heard you were the leader.’ I told him, ‘I want two Concorde tickets,’ and he said, ‘Is that it?’”

    Chrissy Teigen Unhurt After Being Involved in Hit and Run Accident

    Not even celebrities can escape an unfortunate car accident.

    E! News has learned that Chrissy Teigen was involved in a hit and run accident around 7:30 p.m. local time in Hollywood this Tuesday evening.

    Law enforcement sources tell E! News that the supermodel was the passenger of the vehicle that was hit. She ultimately sustained no injuries.

    An unnamed suspect was arrested by Hollywood division on misdemeanor hit and run.

    Earlier in the day, Chrissy appeared to be in great spirits on Snapchat where she shared a throwback photo of herself.

    "Tell me that doesn't look like Lu, Lu," she told her followers. "But that's me. That's mama."

    It's already been a big week for the supermodel who recently made it into the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue. It's one of her first major photo shoots since giving birth to her baby girl Luna.

    "It's been awhile since I've done anything swimsuit," the Lip Sync Battle star said. "I haven't shot since baby. But of course, you know that [editor] MJ [Day] and everyone at Sports Illustrated in general is going to embrace your body no matter what's happening and embrace the changes."

    Just a couple of days ago, Chrissy also joined John Legend in Houston to experience all the fun of Super Bowl 2017.

    Something tells us a minor accident won't stop this Hollywood star from living her best life.

    Kate Upton throws diva fit over Sports Illustrated cover

    Sports Illustrated is releasing its highly anticipated Swimsuit issue on Monday, and sources tell us that it’s likely they will have three covers starring tennis champ Serena Williams, 63-year-old model Christie Brinkley, and possibly Kate Upton.

    Last year, the magazine also used three covers, which featured curvy model Ashley Graham, Hailey Clauson and mixed martial arts champ Ronda Rousey in body paint.

    Sources tell us that an appearance by Upton — whose Rookie of the Year pictures in the mag in 2011 helped make her a star — is still up in the air because of her diva demands.

    “There was drama,” says the source. “Kate demanded that if she did the shoot, that she absolutely must get the cover. She also had a list of photographers and hair and makeup people she would only work with.”

    Upton appeared on the magazine’s cover twice, in 2012 and 2013, when she was photographed in Antarctica.

    The source continued of this time around, “She was being a big f?-?-?king diva. She’s thinks she’s better than everyone because she’s an actress.”

    Upton appeared in “The Other Woman” with Leslie Mann and Cameron Diaz in 2014, and the film was panned by critics. She has three films in post-production, including one directed by William H. Macy and another by James Franco.

    In 2015, Upton — who is engaged to MLB player Justin Verlander — was the subject of a New York Post article discussing whether her “ego is ‘ruining her career.’?” One modeling industry vet said that her “demands became ridiculous.”

    This year, Sports Illustrated has already released glam shots of new mom Chrissy Teigen, Nina Agdal and Lais Ribeiro, which means they are unlikely to be on the cover.

    Other sources said Brinkley also shot pics with her two daughters, Alexa Ray, 31, and Sailor, 18.

    A spokesperson for the mag huffed about the speculation, “It’s that time of year again. Who is in, who’s on the cover, what will they do next? Everyone has a guess, and that’s all this is.”

    Upton’s rep could not be reached.

    Bella and Gigi Hadid march in #NoBanNoWall protest

    Bella and Gigi Hadid took to the streets of New York over the weekend to protest President Donald Trump’s immigration ban.

    Fans snapped the stunning sisters holding a sign and marching in Battery Park.

    The supermodels’ father, real estate developer Mohamed Hadid, is Jordanian-American, Muslim and of Palestinian descent. Bella, 20, and Gigi, 21, consider themselves half-Palestinian. Mother Yolanda Hadid is a Dutch-American and Christian; Gigi’s boyfriend, singer Zayn Malik, is Muslim.

    It’s not the first time Gigi has made a political statement: She previously tweeted her support for the Women’s March, writing, “So inspired by the incredible & unique humans in this world everyday. Thank you for beautifully demonstrating how to put gender, race, religion aside & come TOGETHER for what is right.”

    Christy Turlington Shares Heartfelt Tribute About Her Family’s Immigrant Story After Trump Ban

    Christy Turlington Burns is opening up about her family history, and how it affects her reaction to the news of President Donald Trump‘s executive order to temporarily ban all refugees and limit immigrants from certain Muslim countries.

    On Sunday, the 48-year-old supermodel posted a black and white photo of her mother, uncle and grandfather and provided a long caption on Instagram.

    “My mother, Elizabeth, and uncle, Jaime, with their dad shortly after reuniting with him in Santa Monica, California after two years living apart. Can you even imagine that?” she said. “My grandfather Horacio Parker immigrated to Los Angeles from El Salvador in the ’40s, leaving behind my grandmother and their two children until he settled in and arranged for them to meet him there.”

    “My grandmother, Maria Infante Parker, had lost her third child, a little boy, before he left them. My mom tells a story about when they landed at LAX they didn’t recognize their father who came to collect them with a friend because it had been so long since she had seen him.”

    Trump’s order suspended entry of all refugees to the U.S. for 120 days, barred Syrian refugees indefinitely, and blocked entry into the U.S. for 90 days for nationals from seven predominantly Muslim countries: Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Yemen and Iran. For Turlington, this is a personal reminder of the painstaking journey her relatives made to enjoy a better life in the U.S.

    “My grandparents took risks and left their country with broken hearts, all to start over and make a good life here in the U.S.,” she said. “They worked hard and gave their children every opportunity they could afford to ensure their future success as free human beings. … Thank you Horacio, Maria, Elizabeth and Jaime, for doing the hard work to ensure your children would understand the sacrifices made to call this country theirs, to become American citizens, and empathize with countless others who have come to this country.”

    She ended her post with two hashtags: #iamanimmigrant #nobannowall. Turlington is one of countless celebrities who have shared their grievances about Trump’s new policy on social media.

    Soon after, she shared a photo of her husband Ed Burns wearing a “USA” baseball cap and smiling in front of the Statue of Liberty in New York City.

    Sharing a similar message, she wrote, “Happy Birthday to @edburns, proud New Yorker, lover of American history, descendant of ‘off the boat’ Irish, and Swedish, immigrants. These are the people who built bridges, not walls. ‘Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door.’- #EmmaLazarus #weareallimmigrants #nobannowall.”

    Padma Lakshmi and ex Adam Dell rekindle their romance

    Padma Lakshmi has quietly been spending time again with venture capitalist Adam Dell, her ex and the father of her daughter.

    The couple had a short-lived relationship, broke up in 2009, then went through a bitter custody battle — but settled amicably out of court several years ago.

    Sources, however, tell Page Six that the two have recently become close again.

    Through spending time as a family with their daughter, Krishna, 6, the two have become romantically involved.

    A friend of “Top Chef” host Lakshmi told us, “She’s taking it slow ... seeing how it goes. They both love that child so much, they’re putting the past behind them.”

    The source further said, “She just is being very cautious and private to protect Krishna, regardless of what happens. She’s forgiven the past and giving this a try.”

    A spokeswoman for Lakshmi had no comment.

    Lakshmi, who was previously married to acclaimed author Salman Rushdie, and Dell settled their custody dispute in 2012. Dell is brother of Dell Inc. founder Michael Dell.

    Attackers threatened to kill Naomi Campbell in Paris

    If anyone sympathizes with Kim Kardashian following her traumatic year, it’s friend Naomi Campbell.

    The legendary supermodel revealed Thursday that she, like her famous friend, also experienced a life-threatening encounter in Paris when attackers threatened to kill her.

    “I sympathize with her a lot because I kept mine on the down-low, but in 2012 I was attacked in Paris,” Campbell said on the “Wendy Williams Show.” “They followed me from the airport. They attacked me. They opened my car door and said, ‘Naomi Campbell, we’re going to kill you.'”

    From the moment she arrived in Paris for a quick trip to visit her dear fashion-designer “papa” Azzedine Alaïa, Campbell sensed something was amiss.

    “I went to the car and it wasn’t my normal driver, and it was weird ’cause he had the windows rolled down and the car smelled of this weird perfume. All the windows were rolled down it was November … I was like, ‘Wait a minute, this is weird,'” Campbell explained.

    Upon her arrival at Alaïa’s home, Campbell realized her next choice could decide her fate.

    “Thank God it was outside Azzedine Alaïa’s shop because that’s where you get the entrance to get into the house, because they came out and saved me, basically,” she said. “In the interim, you decide in a very split moment. I don’t know if I’d ever do this again in hindsight: ‘Am I going to let this guy take my bag with all my passports or am I going to fight for it?’ And my decision was, ‘I am not letting my bag go.'”

    Campbell said both her incident and Kardashian’s robbery are part of “a whole ring that’s been happening for a few years now,” and that, “The driver was in on it.”

    “I very much sympathize with her and I felt for her right away,” Campbell said.

    After being robbed at gunpoint in October, Kardashian, 36, stepped out of the spotlight. She ended her three-month absence from social media on Tuesday.

    Christy Turlington Reflects on the "Very Powerful" Lessons She Learned From George Michael

    There's no doubt about it—George Michael and Christy Turlington commanded the late 1980s into the early 1990s.

    The late pop performer, who died Saturday at the age of 53, tapped Turlington and a slew of other catwalk queens to co-star in his 1990 music video for "Freedom," which went on to become one of Michael's most popular hits. In a new interview with Rolling Stone, the supermodel recalls working with Michael on the project and what she admired most about him.

    "I remember him being kind of shy," she explained to the mag. "He was a person who was certainly in control; his aura. He came in with a baseball hat. He didn't have an entourage or anything like that. The whole production seemed pretty pared down, in retrospect."

    And despite the wild lifestyle that many perceived Michael to lead, Christy insisted it wasn't a "party atmosphere" on set without much "hanging around."

    "He was super focused on the production and getting it exactly as it seemed he had in his mind. He was super hands-on and looking through the camera oftentimes and just incredibly engaged in each shot. I've heard since that he micromanaged it quite a bit and I think he ultimately had the final cut, which I learned about only this year," she continued.

    Of the lessons she took from the British singer, Turlington offered, "It was about his vulnerability. Without knowing him very well, certainly there was a sense that he was a person who struggled a lot having a persona and trying to maintain some kind of private life publicly."

    "There are some people who do it better than others, clearly, and I thought he was just very open-hearted about what he was dealing with in the moment at any phase of his life and career. And I think that's something to respect. It's something to learn from," the 47-year-old reflected.

    She also commended George for his fearlessness in the face of adversity: "I was aware enough at the time that there was a struggle with the label and to think that an artist could have the ability to turn it around like that and to not silently lose control of your persona or your voice, but to be able to have the last word, was impressive."

    "He did and has. It feels very pointed and very powerful," she concluded.

    Chrissy Teigen blasts Trump: Celebs are people too

    Celebrities are “people” too, according to model Chrissy Teigen, who put President-elect Donald Trump on blast Friday for suggesting otherwise.

    “Hi – we are people. You are our president too. I don’t want you to be, but u are,” the foxy fashion plate tweeted in response to Trump’s comments about reports of celebs refusing to attend his Jan. 20 inauguration.

    “Also we ALL know you are dying without the approval, dear,” she added.

    On Thursday, Trump tweeted, “The so-called ‘A’ list celebrities are all wanting tixs to the inauguration, but look what they did for Hillary, NOTHING. I want the PEOPLE!”

    Teigen and her singer hubby John Legend backed Hillary Clinton‘s failed bid for president.

    “I think it’s really important to vote for the person who is not a sociopath,” Teigen told The Daily Mail in October.

    Christie Brinkley and David Foster spotted on a date

    Could the fifth time be the charm for Christie Brinkley and David Foster?

    The supermodel and the music hit-maker — who both are single after having been married four times — were spotted on a date at Ralph Lauren’s Polo Bar on Wednesday night.

    The burgeoning couple were such a hit that they even caught the attention of Hillary Clinton, who was dining nearby in an intimate powwow with Lauren.

    “Christie and David were on a date, and Hillary came over and greeted them. She gave Christie a warm hug,” a spy told us.

    Brinkley and Foster later hit up horn player Chris Botti’s show at the Blue Note Jazz Club, where another source described them as “looking cozy.”

    An onlooker told us that Botti pulled Brinkley onstage, where she sat behind the drums and impressively played along with the band.

    Foster just divorced former “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Yolanda Hadid, who’s mom to top models Gigi and Bella. Brinkley is Billy Joel’s ex-wife and recently broke things off with musician John Mellencamp, whom she dated for a year. She met Foster over the summer at Ronald Perelman’s annual Apollo in the Hamptons benefit, we’re told. But an insider insisted that their Polo Bar dinner was “just a date.”

    Meanwhile, we hear that Clinton and Lauren were in “deep conversation” about the election.

    “She was spilling the beans,” said a spy, who added that Clinton had a burger, fries and an ice-cream sundae. “She looked great — she looked back on form,” said a witness. Lauren is a longtime friend of Clinton’s and has designed several of her signature pantsuits.

    The source said, “Hillary was blocks away from Trump Tower. The streets were blocked off, the police are everywhere. She walked out the front entrance when she left.” Trump’s ex Ivana is often spotted dining at the restaurant with numerous Trump supporters.

    On Tuesday, Hillary and Bill Clinton were out at Rao’s with Harvey Weinstein, Georgina Chapman, and David and Mary Boies.

    Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk Expecting First Child

    Bradley Cooper‘s next big role? Dad.

    The actor’s girlfriend, Victoria’s Secret model Irina Shayk, is pregnant with their first child, a source tells PEOPLE. Reps for the couple have not confirmed the pregnancy or responded to requests for comment.

    Shayk, 30, and Cooper, 41, have been dating since spring 2015, not long after the former split from soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo and the latter from Suki Waterhouse.

    The happy couple aren’t shy about their romance, regularly stepping out together on exotic trips and at fun events.

    Just ahead of the baby news, Shayk walked in the 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, which was filmed in Paris on Wednesday and will air Monday on CBS.

    The mom-to-be, dressed in gray lingerie and thigh high black boots, let her baby bump peek through her trench coat as she stopped to pose for the crowd. Taking another turn down the runway, Shayk wore a red halter top bra and strappy stilettos, but kept her belly hidden with a matching fringed robe.

    E! News was the first to report the pregnancy.

    Supermodel Karolína Kurková gives makeover to army wife

    Supermodel Karolína Kurková — whose husband Archie Drury’s a military veteran — gave a makeover this week to Jenn Mullen, the 2016 Armed Forces Insurance Coast Guard Spouse of the Year.

    As part of a Veteran’s Day episode of Amazon’s “Style Code Live” Kurkova co-hosted the show with Rachel Smith and personally “conducted a hair, makeup and fashion” transformation for Mullen, who’s writing a children’s book for “Coastie Kids” to help them cope with their parents’ deployments.

    Maggie Rizer quits Trump Model Management

    Supermodel Maggie Rizer has quit Trump Model Management after eight years with the agency because she feels that after a heated election campaign between its founder, Donald Trump, and Hillary Clinton, she can’t be “the least bit related to the Trump brand.”

    In an Instagram post on Sunday, Rizer — who was one of the most sought-after models of the 1990s and signed with Trump Models in 2008 to make a comeback — wrote, “Today I had to do a hard thing parting ways with my agent at Trump Models. [Agency head Corinne Nicolas] is a great agent and a close friend who has guided and supported me as I transitioned to becoming a working mom.”

    But Rizer, who has three children with husband Alex Mehran, added, “as a woman, a mother, an American and a human being, I cannot wake up Wednesday morning being the least bit related to the Trump brand; win or lose. I owe it to myself and to my children to proudly stand up for what I believe in and that is a world where [Trump] has no voice for the future of our country.”

    Tyra Banks is still ‘very scared’ of Naomi Campbell

    (Video) Tyra Banks‘ runway days are long behind her, but her strained past with Naomi Campbell left a permanent mark.

    As Banks, 42, recalled on the Norwegian-Swedish series “Skavlan” Friday, she is still frightened of the British beauty.

    “I got to Paris and it was very difficult I did very well, very fast,” Banks explained. “But then the industry was saying, ‘Look out Naomi Campbell, here comes Tyra Banks, Naomi Campbell sit your butt down, this younger one is coming to take your place.”

    “It wasn’t fair to Naomi, but her response was … to this day I’m very scared of her,” she continued. “I don’t want to go too deep into the past, but it was very difficult, like some of the lowest times of my life dealing with that.”

    Though Banks didn’t elaborate on Campbell’s behavior, she understood the 46-year-old diva’s frustrations.

    “I don’t condone her actions and her response, but I understand where it comes from because the world is saying, ‘You’re not going to have your spot. We’re going to take your money, we’re going to take your fame. Go sit down, there’s somebody else.'”

    The rivals squashed their 14-year feud on Banks’ now-canceled talk show in 2014.

    “She kept saying it never happened and then there was a commercial break and then she came back and said, you know, ‘I’m sorry,'” Banks revealed. “And, oh my God, I just cried like a baby. To hear that after so many years of pain and dealing with it publicly … me having to leave agencies because of her … to hear that apology meant the world to me. She has no idea what that did for me.”

    Candice Swanepoel Gives Birth! Victoria's Secret Model Welcomes First Child With Fiancé Hermann Nicoli

    Candace Swanepoel is officially trading her angel wings for baby bottles!

    The Victoria's Secret model has given birth to a baby boy named Anacã, which is a Brazilian word for a specific type of bird, with fiancé Hermann Nicoli, E! News confirms. This is the couple's first child together.

    Photographer and friend Jerome Duran took to Instagram to share a gorgeous photo of Swanepoel's bare and pregnant body and to congratulate the new mom with the caption, "THE MOST BEAUTIFUL MAMA Congratulations!! @angelcandices @hermannicoli Welcome Anacã!!! Already sooo much LOVE for you and the new family!"

    Back in March, E! News exclusively learned about Candice's pregnancy, which as a source revealed to us, came as welcome news for the longtime lovebirds. "They are very happy," a source shared at the time, with a separate insider adding, "She's so excited."

    Just two months later, the 27-year-old South African stunner revealed she was expecting a son, exposing her growing baby bump in an artistic, nude photo on Instagram. "My Not so little boy," Candace captioned the gorgeous moment.

    Throughout her pregnancy, Swanepoel granted fans with an intimate glimpse into life as a mama-to-be, sharing a series of modelesque photos where she's posing with her spotlight-stealing bump. During the final countdown to welcoming her little guy, Swanepoel also hosted an adorable safari-themed baby shower.

    And now that she's officially on parenting duties, Candice can rest easy knowing she'll be able to lean on her closest confidant and fellow new mama, Behati Prinsloo.

    "Candice and Behati are best friends and they are not far apart from each other in pregnancy due dates," a source told us. "They both have been experiencing the first stages of being pregnant together and are happy to have each other who understand. They can't wait to be mommies!"

    Prinsloo welcomed her first kid, a daughter named Dusty Rose, with Adam Levinein late September. We can only imagine all the play dates to come!

    Congratulations to Candice and Hermann!

    Empire's Naomi Campbell to Recur on Lee Daniels' Midseason Fox Drama Star

    Onetime Empire pot-stirrer Naomi Campbell has landed a mother of a role on Star, Lee Daniels’ musically themed midseason Fox drama.

    Featuring a soundtrack of original music and music performances, Star follows three talented singers — Star (played by Jude Demorest), Alexandra (Ryan Destiny) and Simone (Brittany O’ Grady) — desperate for a new start and with ambitions of stardom, as they navigate the cut-throat music business on their road to success.

    Campbell will recur as Rose Spencer, Alexandra’s beautiful, wealthy and cultivated London-born mother.

    Star also stars Emmy winner Queen Latifah (as the girls’ surrogate mother), Benjamin Bratt (24: Live Another Day) and Amiyah Scott (Real Housewives of Atlanta), while Grammy winner Lenny Kravitz is among the guest stars.

    Elle Macpherson Reveals Why She Regrets Her Friends Arc

    Although the Friends cast is incredibly grateful for the 10 years they spent on the megahit show, Elle Macpherson has some regrets.

    The supermodel guest starred on the hit show as Joey Tribbiani's (Matt LeBlanc's) roommate-turned-romance, Janine LeCroix, for five episodes, but she told Australia's TV Week recently that she wouldn't have done it in hindsight. "If I'd known how important it was in the U.S., or how long it would be on TV, I may not have chosen to do it," the 52-year-old model admitted.

    "It was a lot of pressure if you look at it in the way that it will be around for 20 or 30 years."

    Macpherson also shared that the show invited her to film more episodes, but she had to decline the offer because she had been living in London at the time.

    Despite any feelings of regret she may have, Macpherson did confess that working with LeBlanc had its perks. "Great working partner," she noted. "Good kisser."

    Ooh la la!

    Although Macpherson may regret her time on Friends, LeBlanc does not. He has since gone on to star in five seasons of Showtime's Episodes, but the Friends alum told E! News' Jason Kennedy at the 2016 Emmys that it was his old hit sitcom that brought him back to multi-cam comedy in CBS' new show Man With a Plan.

    "I kind of missed a live audience show, you know, like Friends was, so we put this thing together and Liza Snyder plays my wife and Kevin Nealon plays my brother, and Jim Burroughs is directing, which is great. He started us off on Friends," he explained.

    Model Gigi Hadid manhandled in Milan

    Model Gigi Hadid was manhandled outside a Milan Fashion Week venue Thursday by a former Ukrainian television reporter who has pulled similar stunts in Paris, Los Angeles and Moscow.

    A video posted on website TMZ.com shows a man grabbing Hadid from behind and lifting her off the ground as she and her sister, Bella Hadid, exited the venue of the Max Mara runway show Thursday morning. Hadid reacted angrily, wriggling out of his grip, saying "Let go of me!" followed by expletives.

    A bodyguard took her arm as she began to go after the assailant and helped her into the car, where the model told someone "go find that guy."

    In an email to The Associated Press, Vitalii Sediuk confirmed that he had lifted Hadid off the ground, saying it was a form of protest against the use of celebrity models.

    "While I consider Gigi Hadid beautiful, she and her friend Kendall Jenner have nothing to do with high fashion," Sediuk said in the emailed statement. "By doing this I encourage fashion industry to put true talents on the runway and Vogue covers instead of well-connected cute girls from Instagram. You can call it a manifest or a protest."

    He said he also objected to having the Kardashians featured in Vogue magazine.

    Kim Kardashian has been a previous object of Sediuk's uninvited attention. He caused her to stumble briefly in Paris when he provoked a kerfuffle at a fashion week event two years ago. Sediuk previously spent two days in jail after jostling with Brad Pitt at a Los Angeles film premiere, and he crawled underneath America Ferrera's dress at a film premiere at the Cannes festival.

    Police in Milan could not immediately confirm whether any complaint had been filed in the incident.

    Hadid, several hours after the incident, appeared in perfect form on the Fendi runway.

    Christy Turlington Says "Never" to Plastic Surgery: "It Looks Freaky to Me"

    Supermodel Christy Turlington is leaving it all up to nature.

    The longtime catwalk pro has spent most of her adult life in the public eye, gracing the pages of virtually every magazine and the runways of every top designer. Now, at 47 years old, the avid runner, women's health advocate and mother of two looks virtually ageless, but it's not because of a little nip and tuck. Instead, Turlington says she would "never" get Botox or plastic surgery.

    "For years these things didn't even exist: collagen, fat cells, the crazy stuff people do I cannot imagine," she said in the 170th Anniversary Issue of Town & Country. "First of all, I have no time. Second of all, I don't think it looks good. Maybe I would think differently if I thought it looked good and it didn't hurt and it didn't send bad messages to young people. But I've never seen someone who I've been like, 'Oh, that's a good idea.' It looks freaky to me."

    While many famous faces in Hollywood opt for injectables or full-fledged surgery to turn back the clock, Turlington has no qualms about getting older.

    "I wasn't worried about aging at 16, and I'm not worried about it at 47. It's a fact of life, and it's good that people close to me see that I'm relaxed and okay about aging, not neurotic or worried about it," she explained.

    With a 12-year-old daughter and 10-year-old son under her wing, she wants her children to see her exactly as she is as she approaches 50 and beyond.

    "To my kids I'll be the mom who barely shaves her legs, who doesn't color her hair," she continued. "Being who you are, being your best self, has nothing to do with what you look like."

    Having come from an industry that is often blamed for perpetuating eating disorders and physical insecurity, Christy doesn't see magazines as a representation of reality—and she doesn't think you should either.

    "I don't think people get eating disorders by looking at magazines. I think there's a much deeper set of issues around a lack of power and control, or something happening in the family," Turlington said. "As an active model and a mother of a 12-year-old girl, I would not blame a magazine or fashion company for that. People have to get over the idea that realism is being projected here."

    In fact, Turlington has made large efforts to get away from her former fashion-fueled life, particularly the image painted by that infamous quote from her colleague, Linda Evangelista—"We don't wake up for less than $10,000 a day."

    "That's not me," Christy told the magazine of her life nearly three decades later. "I don't know what it is. I tried to do everything I could to distance myself from it. It doesn't come into play in my daily life at all."

    Instead, in between running marathons on behalf of women's global health, leading a non-profit and raising her two children, she is years away from her days packed with go-sees.

    "I have a one-day job threshold; two is too much," she told the magazine. "It's like, 'Oh good, at least I can get a manicure. I haven't had one in a year."

    The October issue of Town & Country hits newsstands Sept. 13.

    Amber Rose to Compete on Dancing With the Stars

    Amber Rose's hyphens keep multiplying. The model-actress-talks-show-host-author-activist-entrepreneur will soon add -dancer to the list. E! reports that Rose is joining the cast of Dancing With the Stars' upcoming 23rd season.

    Tyra Banks to teach business class at Stanford University

    Tyra Banks is trading the catwalk for the classroom.

    The former host of "America's Next Top Model" and "FABLife" will teach students at Stanford University next May. Banks will serve as a guest lecturer for two weeks for a class on creating and protecting a personal brand.

    The school says about 25 graduate students will receive instruction from the mogul and model on how to use media to showcase their business acumen and handle press exposure as a business leader.

    The class will culminate with the students sharing their personal brands to the public through video platforms.

    Banks launched a beauty line in 2014.

    Naomi Campbell to mentor designers during Fashion Week

    Naomi Campbell will mentor up-and-coming designers for VFiles’ annual runway show during New York Fashion Week, Page Six has exclusively learned.

    The supermodel will join rapper Young Thug, makeup guru Pat McGrath, Jerry Lorenzo and Rihanna stylist Mel Ottenberg to select and consult with designers.

    Past winners have dressed Madonna, Beyoncé, Kylie Jenner, Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry and have been nominated for the LVMH Prize and CFDA Fashion Awards.

    Bar Refaeli welcomes a baby girl

    Mazel Tov!

    Bar Refaeli and her husband Adi Ezra welcomed daughter, Liv, on Thursday in Tel Aviv, local Israeli media reported.

    The 31-year-old Israeli model gave birth to the 7-pound bundle of joy at Ichilov Hospital.

    This is the couple’s first child together.

    Last week, she posted a photo of herself — and her large baby bump — lounging in a pool. “You can come out now .. I’m ready. And heavy,” she captioned the black-and-white photo.

    Refaeli and Ezra wed in 2015.

    A spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    Christie Brinkley Stands Up for John Mellencamp Against ''Unfair'' and ''Convuluted'' Article About Their Split

    Christie Brinkley and John Mellencamp may have broken up earlier this week, but that's not stopping the actress from standing up for him.

    A report was published on Wednesday, claiming Brinkley split from Mellencamp due to his "hellbent political opinions and his redneck ways," quoting lyrics from two of his famous songs and saying he "sometimes sounds like a Donald Trump supporter."

    Brinkley couldn't stay quiet on the subject, taking to Instagram with a photo of the article and standing up for Mellencamp.

    "While much has been written over the years about me that I simply allow to roll off my back...I do stand up for my friends when things seem unfair and this is the case here," she captioned the photo. "On the heels of a mutual statement...which clearly explained that distance and work were all that stood in the way of our relationship...comes this convoluted article."

    She continued, "[It] cherry picks lyrics from a Mellencamp song, Peaceful World, (which was written right before we went to war w Iraq )...and another more obscure song, The West End , which is about Seymour Indiana and how big box stores have ruined the small towns..and somehow Richard Johnson extrapolates from these old lyrics that John is against progressive Democratic politics and somehow sounds like a Trump fan and that 'hell-bent political opinions and redneck ways' were the reasons we parted."

    However, Brinkley argues that she and Mellencamp are both supporters of Hillary Clinton and have been adamant about supporting the causes they believe in.

    "John and I are actually both patriotic Americans who do our fair share of working to bring Americans together John primarily thru his work with Farm Aid and thru his music , which by the way he just gave Hilary Clinton his song for her campaign 'Our Country.' I was a delegate from the 1st congressional district of NY for Al Gore and have been on the campaign trails speaking out on behalf of our environmental health and nuclear disarmament."

    She added, "We both believe that we stand a better chance of overcoming the problems America faces when Americans of every race religion ethnicity , gender, black lives, blue lives, come together in mutual respect and love and that's why we are both voting for Hillary."

    Finally, she concluded, "As to the problem JOHN and I faced it's just Mileage. Pure and simple. Not that exciting or salacious, sorry."

    Meanwhile, news of Brinkley and Mellencamp's split was announced on Tuesday in a joint statement.

    "Both the mileage between their homes and their heavy career demands interfered with their ability to maintain the relationship," the statement said, noting that both Brinkley and Mellencamp, who dated for one year prior to their split, have "vowed to remain best of friends."

    Christie Brinkley got sick of John Mellencamp’s ‘redneck ways’

    Christie Brinkley had to part with John Mellencamp because she couldn’t take his hellbent political opinions and his redneck ways, sources say.

    The supermodel is a fixture in the fancy social circles of the Hamptons and is a Hillary Clinton supporter, while Mellencamp still lives in southern Indiana and sometimes sounds like a Donald Trump fan, though he isn’t.

    “If you know John, you know he doesn’t do well at social gatherings and at tables filled with nice folks, particularly the Hamptons set,” one insider told me. “He shoots straight from the hip. She may have liked that he’s a cowboy, but in the end that’s what drove her away.”

    The chain-smoking Mellencamp is anti-war and pro-gay marriage. But in “Peaceful World” he sings, “People know this world is a wreck/We’re sick and tired of being politically correct.”

    In “The West End” he sings, “It sure has changed here/Since I was a kid/It’s worse now/Look what progress did.”

    A source close to the couple said, “Distance was the culprit. He doesn’t like the Hamptons. That is not his scene. So it fizzled out.”

    Christie Brinkley and John Mellencamp have broken up

    Life has gotten in the way of Christie Brinkley and John Mellencamp’s relationship, so they’re calling it quits.

    The celebrity couple has broken up after a year of going steady.

    “Both the mileage between their homes and their heavy career demands interfered with their ability to maintain the relationship,” a spokeswoman for the former couple told Page Six. “They vowed to remain best of friends.”

    Brinkley, 62, and Mellencamp, 64, hit it off after meeting at a party in the Hamptons last summer.

    The former Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue cover model has been busy promoting her own line of prosecco, Bellissima, while the musician is getting ready to hit the road again next month.

    Last month, when Page Six talked to Brinkley at the St. Barth Hamptons Gala, reporters were explicitly told not to ask her about dating or relationships, hinting that all was not well between the pair.

    People first reported news of the breakup.

    Scott Eastwood parties with Charlotte McKinney in Vegas

    Newly single Carl’s Jr. burger-and-bikini model Charlotte McKinney — who we exclusively reported split from Stephen Dorff, 43, in July — was spotted celebrating her 23rd birthday in Las Vegas with of-the-moment hunk Scott Eastwood.

    McKinney was with the “Suicide Squad” actor, 30, at Intrigue nightclub at the Wynn, “dancing on the club’s stage,” a source said. “They seemed to be vibing.”

    The pair were rumored to be dating last year, but a rep for McKinney insisted to us that they’re “just friends.”

    Let the Games Begin! Olympics Opening Ceremony Kicks Off in Rio

    (Pic) Let the games begin!

    Brazil's own Gisele Bündchen helped open the 2016 Summer Olympics with a bang, Friday, stunning as she strutted across the Macarana Stadium in the role of the famous "Girl from Ipanema."

    Bündchen showed off her infamous gams while she aided in showcasing Brazil's culture from her lengthy final catwalk while Daniel Jobim sang.

    During the starting moments of the show – which kicked off an hour before the U.S. broadcast on NBC – performers clad in silver and blue covered the LED floor of the arena as fireworks burst overhead. The elaborate dance routine played on the theme of "gambiarra," which was described as "the Brazilian talent for making the most out of nothing" by the official Rio Twitter account.

    Following the performance of the Brazilian National Anthem by singer-songwriter, and native Paulinho da Viola, dancers portrayed important parts of the country's history. The habitation of the rainforest scene was comprised of performers that are actual descendants of aborigines. Dancers created various pyramid and tree shapes with lighted strings.

    Another sequence featured psychedelic lights, and hip-hop and break dancers climbing and catapulting boxes while clad in all white.

    Dame Judi Dench lent her voice to a special, emotional poem about global warming, which was accompanied by video of the Brazilian rainforests.

    Grammy award-winning Brazilian musicians Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil also joined the other 4,800 performers and volunteers. Notably missing was Brazil's most famous athlete, soccer player Pele, 75, who said Friday that poor health kept him from taking part in the opening ceremony.

    There was also a giant dance-a-long, featuring Bündchen doing her best Taylor Swift-inspired moves.

    Later, during the parade of the nations, the Independent Olympic team – which is comprised mostly of refugees – received a standing ovation. The countries marched in alphabetical order, based on the Portuguese spelling of their names.

    Team U.S.A. arrived with flag bearer Michael Phelps proudly leading the way in his light-up jacket.

    There are actually two cauldrons present in Rio, both designed by American sculptor Anthony Howe: One, lit at the Maracana soccer stadium, the site of the opening ceremony, and the other in downtown Rio, which will be lit after the ceremony's close.

    "Smile is the approach the Brazilians have toward life," Marco Balich, the program's executive producer, told the Associated Press before the ceremony, saying the display would indicate that "we are who we are, with a lot of social problems, a lot of crises in the political system, etc."

    Those social problems were cause for protests outside of the luxurious Copacabana Palace, where athletes and some members of the press were staying for the games. Thousands of protesters decried the current Brazilian government and the thousands spent on the Olympics in place of basic infrastructure repairs.

    "It's a very important event," Vitor Guimaraes told NBC. "We hope the athletes have the best performance in their lives, but for us it's a very bad moment to receive the Olympic Games because in Brazil everything is not okay."

    Supermodel Gisele Bündchen Reveals All on Her Starring Role in Rio Opening Ceremony

    Supermodel Gisele Bündchen will make her return to the runway Friday as she takes part in the Opening Ceremony for the Summer Olympics, which are being held in her home country of Brazil – and she's a little nervous about it.

    "This is for sure the longest runway I have ever walked in my life and by far with the most amount of people watching, so it is a little nerve-wracking I must say," Bündchen told PEOPLE in an exclusive interview Friday. "This is a very special moment for my country and I am humbled that they invited me to be a part of such a special celebration."

    Bündchen, 36, was born in rural Horizontina, Brazil, and modeled in Sao Paolo before she relocated to N.Y.C. and became the world's highest-paid supermodel. But she's always maintained deep connections to her home country, running multiple businesses in Brazil, participating in Sao Paolo fashion week, visiting her family – including her five sisters – there regularly, and even raising her two children, Benjamin, 5, and Vivian, 3, with New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady to speak both English and Portuguese.

    "They are both fluent in Portuguese. Vivi has no accent and Benny has a little more," says Bündchen, who brought both children along with her to Rio de Janeiro. (Brady, 39, is stuck back home in Boston, where he's already in training for the Patriots' upcoming season.)

    "Definitely to see my family is the best thing I get to do when I am in Brazil," she says. "Most of my family will be here for the ceremony. We just love being together no matter what we are doing. My family loves talking and sharing since we don't get to do that very often. It's also so nice to have all the kids together and see how they are interacting."

    Despite much criticism over the seemingly chaotic lead-up to the Olympics, as the Zika virus ravaged Brazil and political unrest led to concerns about safety in Rio, Bündchen defended the city.

    "I feel that there will always be people judging and criticizing no mater what," she says. "I believe that there are different ways to look at things; I always chose to focus on the positive because I believe that so much of what we create comes from what we believe."

    She also showcased the beauty of the city on Instagram and Snapchat Friday morning.

    "It was an honor for me to be invited to take part of the opening ceremonies in my country. I always loved watching the opening ceremonies through the years and the Olympic games are one of my favorite sporting events to watch," adds Bündchen, who will walk the world's longest runway to an appropriate song, "The Girl from Ipanema."

    "It's a beautiful celebration of all the diversity in the world through sports," she says. "It's so nice to see the world come together at these times. To me, it feels like at this moment we can all be as one."

    Christie Brinkley doesn’t care what you think about her looks

    Christie Brinkley says she doesn’t care if people compare how she looks to when she was in her Sports Illustrated heyday.

    But she didn’t always feel like that: “Until I turned 50 .?.?. my weight kind of would go up and down with kids and having babies .?.?. then I would go to put on a bathing suit, and I’d go, ‘Oh gosh, I don’t look anything like my Sports Illustrated picture. People are going to go, oh see, I told you it’s all airbrushing.’”

    She continued, “When I turned 50 .?.?. I felt like I had a license to say, ‘Cut me some slack. It doesn’t really matter.’ Now, at 62, I just really want to be healthy. I want to feel good. I want to just not be so self-conscious .?.?. like if my legs are a little flabbier or my upper arms dangle a little bit .?.?. I’m doing the best I can.”

    The sassy supermodel, who looks just as good to us as she did at 20, said that after surviving a 1994 helicopter crash, she’s just happy to still be here. “I have a real appreciation for every single day.”

    She’ll do a good deed on Saturday, hosting the St. Barth Hamptons gala, which benefits the Bridgehampton Historical Society.

    Miranda Kerr engaged to Snapchat co-founder and CEO

    NBC has ordered new business competition series Funded (working title), a show built around an investment fund that gives entrepreneuers the opportunity to compete for $1 million cash.

    Estella Warren -- You Punched Me In The Face ... After I Decorated Your Boat!

    Estella Warren's jaw was crushed and she was knocked out cold after she was attacked by a man she repeatedly rejected ... according to the actress.

    The "Planet of the Apes" star got a temporary restraining order after she says a man whose boats she helped redecorate began harassing her ... first breaking into her apartment and threatening her life, shoving her and spitting at her before jumping off the balcony.

    Estella says a week later she was jogging near her home and spotted the man waiting for her outside. She says she shouted at him to stay away and called a neighbor for help.

    That's when the man started cussing her out, punched her from behind and knocked her out. Estella claims she was left with a concussion from the blow.

    Estella also says she was harassed with numerous voicemails ... plus 63 texts sent within an hour. The man ultimately was charged with misdemeanor assault and making annoying phone calls.

    He remains in custody.

    Charlotte McKinney breaks up with Stephen Dorff

    Blond bombshell Charlotte McKinney has split from her boyfriend, “Blade” actor Stephen Dorff.

    “He was fooling around with other women,” said a source, who added of the Carl’s Jr. model, “Charlotte has been dating Stephen for a while, but he carried on ­texting other women and inviting them over to his house on the beach in Malibu.”

    The May-December pair, who are 20 years apart, had been dating since April of last year.

    Our source added that Dorff can be a party guy.

    “July Fourth weekend .?.?. there were all these random people in his house. Charlotte has had enough of him,” the insider said.

    But another source close to the couple insisted that their breakup was not about other women, but rather McKinney’s busy schedule.

    Parting ways was “more from her end,” the source said, because “she has booked a couple of movies. It was nothing to do with partying or anything like that.”

    McKinney, who appeared in “Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser,” will star in the upcoming “Baywatch” movie with Zac Efron, and has a new Guess campaign out. (She has no new film projects beyond “Baywatch” announced as yet.)

    Dorff has several movies in the pipeline, including “Music, War and Love,” with Stellan Skarsgård.

    Reps for both Dorff and McKinney declined to comment.

    Derek Jeter and Hannah Davis Are Married

    Congratulations are in order for Mr. and Mrs. Derek Jeter!

    The retired New York Yankees star, 42, married model Hannah Davis, 26, on Saturday evening, E! News confirms. In front of close family and friends, the pair exchanged vows at the Meadowood Napa Valley Resort in St. Helena, Calif.

    According to Us Weekly, the bride walked down the aisle in a Vera Wang gown while the groom wore a handsome black suit. The ceremony began around 5 p.m. local time and lasted about 20 minutes.

    The private couple dated for three years before news of their engagement broke in October. "They are extremely excited and in love!" a source told E! News at the time. "They can't wait to spend their lives together."

    It's not just the two of them, though—Derek and Hannah are the proud parents of a 100-plus pound Italian Mastiff named Kane! In an interview with The Players' Tribune, Derek revealed the enormous dog "was a Christmas gift last year from my fiancée," and he's the first to admit he was a little unsure about his puppy present at the start.

    Although Hannah's "family had Mastiffs growing up," Derek had "never owned a pet" before," he explained. But with some training (for the dog and his new owner), Derek and Kane are getting along quite nicely.

    Family—fur and human—is very important to Derek and Hannah. "Trying to impress you with material things? I think that's lame," she told Maxim earlier this year. "I wanted someone whose family is a big, important part of their life."

    And that may eventually include kids. "I mean, I want to have a family," Derek told NBC News back in 2014. "Who knows when it's gonna be? But I look forward to it."

    As do we. Until then, though, congratulations to Derek and Hannah on their "I do's!"

    Ashley Graham: My abusive ex threw a couch on me

    Ashley Graham‘s past relationship was the epitome of a nightmare.

    “He was abusive in more than one way,” the supermodel explained in the August issue of Cosmopolitan. “He threw a couch on me. He came home drunk. I was sitting on it, and he flipped it upside down. I remember my elbow being jammed but thinking, ‘He didn’t hit me; he was just really angry, you know?’ You hear stories of women who say the exact same thing — I wasn’t showing up with bruises, he wasn’t beating me every day.”

    “Looking back, I should’ve left, but I was an insecure woman in a terrible relationship who did not know herself,” she continued.

    Though Graham, 28, found happiness in husband Justin Ervin, she’s grown tired of the hateful remarks about their interracial relationship.

    “One comment on Instagram was, ‘I knew a girl her size could only be with a black guy.’ I think that’s so ugly,” the Nebraska native recalled. “But we talk about the fact that I’m white and he’s black all the time. I’ve seen how racist America is. It’s opened my eyes to how ignorant I have been, how white privilege has taken over a lot of my thoughts and actions because it’s just something that I take for granted.”

    The haters haven’t stopped Graham from flaunting her love for her husband of six years. In February, she shared a snap of the couple enjoying date night with another power pair.

    If Kate Moss Gives Up Modeling, She's Got a Backup Plan: 'I Would Have Been Quite a Good Nurse!'

    Kate Moss, 42, has been modeling for 28 years — and she’s been lending her gorgeous face to Rimmel London for more than half that time. Believe it or not, this summer marks the British icon’s 15th year as the beauty brand’s muse. And to celebrate, the supermodel has created a limited-edition collection of lipsticks for the brand and is inviting you inside her house to get ready for a party with her. (Don’t lie: You’ve always wanted to do that.)

    “Rimmel London is one of the brands I have been working with the longest,” Moss tells PeopleStyle of being a part of the cosmetics company’s family. “We got to know each other really well over the years. They indulge me with a lot of creative freedom to work on my collections.”

    And as a veteran ambassador, Moss says that creative freedom lends itself to the shoots, where she really gets to experiment: “I would have to say though that the most fun parts are shooting the ads,” she says. “[Rimmel] has had me do the craziest things. It’s always been fun.”

    Speaking of fun: The model gave fans a glimpse into her London pad, where she answers every question you’ve been dying to ask her — from what she’d be doing if she didn’t fall into modeling (“I would have been quite a good nurse … I would have been taking care of soldiers!”) to the music icons who have influenced her signature rocker style over the years (“I quite like how men dressed in the ’70s, like Mick Jagger and Marc Bolan,” she says. “They’re quite feminine but still with a tomboy-ish look that I quite like”) — while she preps for a party.

    Our biggest (and surprising!) takeaway? She much prefers an evening in to a wild-and-crazy night out, believe it or not. “[Getting ready] is usually my favorite part of the whole evening,” she confesses. “Sometimes we don’t even make it out, we’re having too much fun!”

    She adds: “I like being at home to mingle and dance around and be silly.”

    Kate Moss Rimmel London anniversary

    Ready to pick up her line of lippies? The limited-edition collection, Lasting Finish By Kate, is filled with three statement red shades (Muse Red #51, Idol Red #52 and Retro Red #53) and three creamy nudes (Boho Nude #56, Rock N Roll Nude #54 and My Nude #55), each of which reflect the supermodel’s taste, right down to the sleek tubes in the supermodel’s favorite hue: rose gold. Nab one (or all!) for $5.79 each at drugstores.

    Christie Brinkley selling $30M Hamptons mansion

    Christie Brinkley is selling her Tower Hill estate in Bridgehampton, where she’s lived for 18 years.

    The 20-plus-acre property is on the market for $29.5 million and listed with Enzo Morabito of Douglas Elliman, The Post exclusively reports.

    Brinkley’s prepping for life as an empty nester and will move into one of her smaller properties in Sag Harbor, as her children, Jack and Sailor Brinkley-Cook, spend more time in Manhattan. (Her other daughter, Alexa Ray Joel, has lived in the city for years.)

    The Tower Hill estate was built in 1891 and has views from the Atlantic Ocean to the Connecticut shore. Besides a main house with a 50-foot observation tower, there’s a four-bedroom guest house with greenhouse conservatory, a separate barn/artist studio and a four-car heated garage.

    The former model’s known as a Hamptons real estate whiz: She sold a Sag Harbor home for $10 million in 2013 after her divorce from Peter Cook.

    Busy Brinkley’s also launching Bellissimo, a line of organic proseccos, along with other entrepreneurial efforts.

    Sophie Tweed-Simmons Says She Was Told She Wasn't 'Small Enough' to Model

    Sophie Tweed-Simmons has launched a successful modeling career – recently starring in a campaign for lingerie line Adore Me – but says the modeling industry wasn't always so accepting of her curvy figure.

    "When I was 14 and just trying modeling, they would flat out tell you, 'You're not small enough,' " Tweed-Simmons, 23, tells PEOPLE. "Or [agencies] will take you as a model, but then they won't send you out on any castings without telling you why."

    She hopes that her inclusion in mainstream modeling campaigns can help other young girls see a body role model they can relate to.

    "I just love that Adore Me is hiring [curvy models] because it's setting an example for the next generation of girls," she says. "I didn't have that, so I'm happy to be a part of it."

    And while she's obviously comfortable posing in just a bra and underwear nowadays, Tweed-Simmons says she wasn't always confident about her body.

    "When girls hit the age of 12 or 13, for some reason we all start hating ourselves, and it took me a long time to get over that, especially being a curvier woman and having a mom that's a model," says Tweed-Simmons, whose mother is Canadian model Shannon Tweed. "I just didn't have the same body type as her, and I really didn't have a body role model growing up. Her body wasn't something I could relate to."

    Tweed-Simmons says her mother spoke candidly to her about their different body types.

    "She sat me down at a very young age and said, 'You got your body shape from your dad [Gene Simmons]'s side of the family, and that's not the shape that I am, but that doesn't mean that your body is any less beautiful than mine,' " she recalls. "I think that's a conversation that parents don't seem to have with their kids, and I'm thankful that she did with me, because we really do compare ourselves to our parents."

    Supermodel Pat Cleveland spills on longtime lover Warren Beatty

    Supermodel Pat Cleveland was so attracted to longtime lover Warren Beatty that even when she went to break the news to him that she’d gotten married to another man, they ended up in bed.

    In Cleveland’s memoir “Walking With the Muses,” out Tuesday from 37 INK, Cleveland recalls meeting Beatty at a 1975 Marlborough Gallery exhibition of Richard Avedon portraits, where she was with Andy Warhol.

    “Warren was even more handsome in the flesh than on celluloid,” Cleveland, now 65, writes. “My insides were churning like mad, though I thought I was doing a pretty good job of keeping my cool.”

    But Warhol whispered to the model of Beatty, “You must have him,” and, “Get over there.”

    Later, Beatty wound up walking Cleveland home. “With each step, things between us began to feel more and more natural, though I still couldn’t believe that my lifelong crush was escorting me home,” she recalls.

    Beatty “took my hand and kissed my fingertips, then looked with his starry eyes directly into my face,” she writes. “I could have fainted on the spot, but I held my composure.”

    Beatty left with just a “quick kiss on the lips,” then sent a dozen red roses to her modeling agency the next day with a note: “Please call me. Warren.” “And so our romance began,” Cleveland writes. “We’d get together every time he came to New York City, and I would cherish every moment.”

    But in 1978, “just after I’d married my first husband [male model Martin Snaric] .?.?. I stopped answering Warren’s messages.”

    Finally deciding she owed the star an explanation, and “[w]ith the noblest of intentions, I went over to his place,” but, “[h]e was irresistible .?.?. I succumbed. We had sex — great sex — with him still ignorant of my altered marital status.” When Cleveland then blurted, “I got married,” Beatty replied, “You were supposed to marry me .?.?. Divorce him. Marry me!”

    But, “Walking away from Warren that day was one of the toughest things I’ve ever had to do.”

    Naomi Campbell is definitely in touch with her culinary side

    Supermodel Naomi Campbell says cooking is one of her favorite pastimes.

    “Everyone who knows me knows I love to cook,” Campbell said, adding that she often cooks for longtime pals Edward Enninful and Kate Moss when she isn’t working.

    “I cook or we play board games. We love TV,” she said.

    Campbell and Moss currently star in Enninful’s short film “The Seven Deadly Sins of Edward Enninful,” a collaboration with Beats by Dre that commemorates Enninful’s 25 years in fashion.

    Adriana Lima wants to be cast in a Tarantino film

    Supermodel Adriana Lima told Page Six she’s ready to act.

    “I’m just waiting for someone to see me. I’m like, ‘Hello, I’m here,’?” she said at the Fragrance Foundation Awards. “My dream role is with Quentin Tarantino, fingers crossed.” But, “I haven’t had a chance to tell him that directly.”

    Lima wouldn’t completely trade in her racy Victoria’s Secret shoots. “My plan is to be here as long as gravity lets me,” she cracked. She’s the face of Marc Jacobs’ new fragrance, which won several awards at the gala on Tuesday.

    Model Anne Vyalitsyna Is Engaged to Adam Cahan: See Her Stunning Engagement Ring

    (Pic) Someone is starting off the summer with a brand-new relationship status.

    Anne Vyalitsyna had big news to share on her social media over the weekend. As it turns out, the model is engaged to her longtime boyfriend Adam Cahan.

    "Yep this happened," she wrote on Twitter Sunday afternoon while flashing her brand-new piece of bling. "Luckiest girl in the world #ModernFamily."

    In her post, the 30-year-old also posed for a group shot with her fiancé and his two kids from a preview relationship. Anne also held onto the couple's baby they welcomed last June.

    Prior to her relationship with Adam, Anne was linked to Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine and New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey.

    And in a candid interview back in 2014, the Sports Illustrated model admitted to Ocean Drive magazine that dating in the public eye wasn't always the easiest task.

    "Honestly, it sucks, but it is what it is," she admitted to the publication. "People don't really realize that at the end of the day, we all want to be loved. We all want to have normal families and relationships and kids. No one wants to get divorced and have someone create stupid dramas and articles about your relationship."

    On the bright side, all signs point to a bright future ahead for Anne and Adam. One look at the model's Instagram and you'll sense a proud mom in love with her family.

    "Somehow, we'll find it. The balance between whom we wish to be. We simply have to be satisfied with who we are," she recently wrote online.

    Congratulations to the couple on their big news!

    Kate Moss spotted with ex following breakup rumors

    Kate Moss and younger beau Count Nikolai von Bismarck were back together again Wednesday night after a recent reported breakup.

    Moss, 42, reportedly kicked von Bismarck, 29, out of her house last month and ordered him to go rehab.

    They were photographed leaving the André Balazs-owned hotel together the next morning.

    Moss was said to look fragile in Cannes, France, after the split.

    Tyra Banks: Selling Fierce Bev Hills Pad For $6.5 MIllion

    Tyra Banks is slashing the price of her Beverly Hills home by a cool million after not being able to sell the place for months.

    The former "America's Next Top Model" host is selling her Spanish-style mansion for $6.5 million. It's been on the market since September, when she listed it for $7.75 mil. It's not a huge loss, considering she bought the pad for only $3 million.

    Tyra's expanded the family so maybe she's looking for a bigger pad -- although this one has 4 bedrooms and 7 baths.

    There's also a pool and one of those garages that's been converted into a gym, plus lots of outdoor nooks with fountains for entertaining. Surprisingly, no catwalk.

    Gisele Bundchen to fight illegal animal trafficking

    Gisele Bundchen is fighting for sea turtles.

    The United Nations said Wednesday that the Brazilian supermodel has been named a goodwill ambassador as part of an unprecedented global campaign to fight the illegal trafficking of wildlife entitled "Wild for Life."

    "Knowledge is power and now is the time to set our minds to ending all illegal wildlife trade before the choice is no longer in our hands. Today, I am giving my name to change the game for sea turtles," Bundchen said in a statement.

    Bundchen, who is married to New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, announced her support Wednesday morning with an Instagram post featuring a picture of sea turtle superimposed over her face.

    The campaign, which was launched at the second United Nations Environment Assembly in Nairobi, has named a number of celebrities as goodwill ambassadors with each representing a separate species threatened by the illegal trade.

    Manchester City soccer player Yaya Toure is backing elephants and actor Ian Somerhalder is pulling for pangolins.

    Celebrities from China, India, Indonesia, Lebanon and Vietnam battling are also on board working to conserve orangutans, tigers, rhinos and helmeted hornbills and calling for citizen support to end the demand that is driving the illegal trade which enriches criminal networks and threatens peace and security around the globe.

    John Kay of Steppenwolf donated the use of the hit "Born to Be Wild," to the campaign.

    The campaign also encourages people to go to its web site to find their own kindred species: https://wildfor.life/quiz.

    Kate Moss braves Cannes amid breakup

    Kate Moss is taking her breakup with Count Nikolai von Bismarck hard.

    The supermodel put on a long, red gown and a brave face for the Cannes Film Festival premiere of “Loving” — the true story of an interracial couple sentenced to prison in 1958 for breaking Virginia’s Racial Integrity Act.

    But a witness told me Moss looked fragile and visibly shaken while being led up the stairs by her blond male companion, who was not von Bismarck.

    Moss, 42, who separated from her husband, Jamie Hince, last July, reportedly kicked Bismarck, 29, out of her home last week and ordered him to go to rehab.

    Also at the premiere were Colin Firth, Mischa Barton and movie producer Jennifer Niejadlik.

    Meanwhile, Lady Victoria Hervey, the Paris Hilton of London, celebrated the publication of her first novel “Lady in Waiting: The Wristband Diaries” aboard a yacht with model Angela Lindvall.

    Cara Delevingne: I was obsessed with blood and death as a child

    Cara Delevingne steered clear of the fairy tales while growing up.

    “When I was a child, I was obsessed with blood and death,” the “Suicide Squad” star revealed in the June/July issue of W. “This sounds really dark, but my earliest memory is of cutting myself. I was pretending to shave like my dad.”

    As the 23-year-old recalled, she nearly slashed off a finger after getting hold of her father’s razor.

    “One time, I covered my face in shaving foam, and I got his razor and ran it along the bottom of my finger and nearly cut it off… [The scar] is barely visible now,” she said. “But I like knowing that it’s there.”

    Delevingne has been candid about her struggles in the past, particularly with her depression. Last month, she clarified comments made to the U.K.’s Times alleging her modeling career made her feel “hollow.”

    “I never said I was quitting modeling,” she wrote in a series of tweets. “I do not blame the fashion industry for anything. I suffer from depression and was a model during a particularly rough patch of self hatred.”

    “I am so lucky for the work I get to do, but I used to work to escape and just ended up completely exhausting myself,” Delevingne continued. “I am focusing on filming and trying to learn how to not pick apart my every flaw. I am really good at that.”

    Kate Moss Reveals Her Best Beauty Trick (and She Agrees It's 'Insane')

    Kate Moss is an expert in many things: modeling, street style dressing, being every designer’s muse … we could keep going. But when it comes to skincare, the supermodel says she’s not the best at dishing out advice, as her go-to beauty trick is a bit unconventional.

    In a recent interview with W magazine, Moss, 42, confessed her biggest skincare tip to achieving her best-looking complexion: dunking her face in ice water. (Yes, seriously.)

    So, inquiring minds want to know: Where did the supermodel vet pick up this rather extreme beauty trick?

    “No one! I just watched Mommie Dearest,” she exclaimed to W magazine. “That’s what she does, isn’t it? I first thought, that’s insane, then I was like ‘Hmmmm.’ Those old school tricks work! With slices of cucumber and you just put your face in it and you definitely wake up.”

    Moss says not even her mom could have taught this shocking trick for great skin to the supermodel, considering skin maintenance wasn’t a big beauty priority growing up in London.

    “…Back then, no one really did,” the supermodel said of the lack of skincare knowledge she received when she was younger. “I don’t think English people do, in general. It wasn’t a big thing. Now it’s getting big.”

    So big that Moss’ 13-year-old daughter, Lila Grace, has joined in on the fun and is a bonafide makeup maven.

    “Oh, she knows more than me now,” Moss said. “She’s into natural, organic. Now, she’s into mascara and beauty blogs and stuff.”

    But going back to the whole dunking your head in a tub of ice to tighten skin, Moss says she best prefers the freezing treatment in the early hours of the day to, you know, help wake her up.

    “When I’m at work and it’s an early morning and you’re still asleep, really, then I do it,” she said. “It’s so good. It definitely works, because all the blood comes to the surface.”

    For those feeling brave enough to dunk their own heads in a tub full of ice, good luck.

    Coco Rocha Confesses She's Addicted to Ketchup in the Latest 'What's in Your Salad?'

    Coco Rocha has some choice words for those who think model’s don’t eat. After a lifetime of being told to go get a hamburger, she has news for all the haters out there, “Guess what, I eat my hamburgers, in fact, I love my hamburgers.” And to prove it the model mom sat down with Danielle and Laura Kosann, the sisters behind The New Potato, for a round of Shake Shack, answering all of their most pressing foodie questions for the latest installment of their series, “What’s in Your Salad?”

    The first thing you should know about sharing a burger and fries with Coco? She’s a total ketchup hog, refusing to share her 3 containers with Danielle and Laura after having cultivated an obsession with the sauce from being denied it as a child due to all the sugar, a fact she totally schools The New Potato girls on.

    But the good news for those aspiring to be just like Coco, according to the supermodel all you need to do (besides develop an unhealthy love of ketchup of course) is cultivate an appreciation for a “mushy” burger and then you can go ahead and call yourself a muse, a term that in her opinion is “just a word now, like supermodels,” devoid of its original meaning. But just because you now share all her quirks, don’t expect to get an invite to Coco’s dream dinner party anytime soon as those spots are reserved for Bette Midler, Liza Minelli, Elizabeth Taylor, Glenn Close, and big bowl of spaghetti bolognese.

    As for the model’s exercise secret? She confesses it only came easily to her when she was pregnant because she felt as though she was doing it for someone else, making sure her baby was staying as healthy as possible. But has she worked out since giving birth? In the models words, “holding a baby that’s 20 pounds, that’s a workout in itself.”

    As for the weirdest thing she’s bought online lately, it’s also newborn-centric, naturally. The model purchased a “baby bouncy trampoline thing” that’s taken over her entire living space. But photos of little Ioni James Conran in this apparatus won’t be showing up on social media anytime soon, “she has to prefect her bouncing first,” the model joked, “and then she’ll post it on Instagram. She’ll tag you guys.” Considering Coco’s baby already has 50K followers, that’s one infant you definitely want as a follower.

    Naomi Campbell spotted at Whitney reception for Steve McQueen

    Naomi Campbell was spotted with W Magazine’s Edward Enninful at a Whitney Museum reception Tuesday night for Steve McQueen.

    The director-artist’s art show includes an expanded version of a 2012 piece, “End Credits,” with screens scrolling declassified FBI documents on Paul Robeson, the great singer, actor and civil rights activist.

    Part of the Whitney’s exhibition series “Open Plan,” which has also included work by Andrea Fraser and Michael Heizer, the “12 Years a Slave” director’s show runs through May 14.

    Kate Upton and Justin Verlander are engaged

    Kate Upton had quite the impressive accessory to go with her Met Gala look: an engagement ring from beau Justin Verlander.

    The 23-year-old model confirmed the couple’s impending nuptials to E! News during a brief stop on the red carpet. “He asked me right before the season started, so we’ve been keeping it on the down low for quite a while, so I’m excited to finally be able to share it with the world,” she said Monday night.

    Upton and the Detroit Tigers pitcher, 33, have been dating for three years.

    Her rep didn’t immediately return a request for comment.

    Cindy Crawford Wants You to Give Back by Shopping Your Favorite Beauty Products

    Supermodel vet Cindy Crawford is known for dedicating her celebrity to charity. That’s why she’s teaming up with QVC, along with her close friend and makeup artist Sonia Kashuk, for its annual Beauty with Benefits broadcast, which gives back in a major way.

    QVC is hosting its yearly two-hour beauty product-filled show, Beauty with Benefits, to raise money for Cosmetic Executive Women Foundation‘s Cancer and Careers organization, and the cause is close to Crawford’s heart.

    “I lost my brother to leukemia as a child, and part of my mother’s grieving process was to help raise money for the hospital where he received treatment,” Crawford, 50, told PeopleStyle. “It inspired me and set an example to give back and get involved.”

    She added: “Who knew we were going to be dealing with it again years later when my sister, Chris, was diagnosed with thyroid cancer? Cancer affects all of us, and Cancer and Careers is a great resource to get support. Beauty with Benefits champions Cancer and Careers, and I love the idea that beauty can give back.”

    So how is QVC giving back? Cosmetics giants, including Clinique, Julep, Bobbi Brown and more, will all have products featured in the two-hour sale, and 80 percent of the purchase price of the donated merchandise will go to the organization, Cancer and Careers.

    Some of our faves? BareMinerals’ On Multi-Tasking Highlighter With Brush, Laura Geller’s Laura’s Master Class Three-Piece Eye Collection and Givenchy’s Special Edition Eyeshadow Palette.

    Stock up on all your favorite products and give back by tuning in to QVC tonight from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. EST. Happy shopping!

    White House Correspondents’ Dinner Guests

    The final White House Correspondents’ Dinner of President Barack Obama’s administration takes place on Saturday but the star power of the guest list is only now truly coming together. Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith may not have attended the Oscars this year but they’re coming to the WHCD as guests of ABC, I’ve learned.

    And there will be a bit of a worldsavers throwback to the 1990s reunion as well – thanks to Fox News Channel.

    Today FNC once again held on to their title as the tables to watch with the news that Independence Day: Resurgence cast members like Jeff Goldblum will be their guests along with AMPAS President Cheryl Boone Isaacs. MPAA boss Chris Dodd will also be there breaking FNC bread on April 30 with megastar Megyn Kelly, Bret Baier and other big names from Roger Ailes’ team. The 90th annual WHCD marks the debut of Comedy Central’s Larry Wilmore as host. While 1996’s Independence Day was a breakout role for Smith, the star does not appear in the sequel, which is out June 24 from 20th Century Fox. Smith’s supervillain team-up pic Suicide Squad opens on August 5 from Warner Bros.

    Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton may be staying away this year to save their best lines for the marquee slot in 2017 but in typical DC manner of fact melding with fiction, Netflix’s political drama House of Cards and ABC’s Scandal are back in the room again. HoC’s Michael Kelly returns as a guest of Thomson Reuters at the nerd prom while Nerve Campbell is at one of TIME’s tables at the Washington Hilton.

    While it feels like the overall star power is dimmed from past years, ABC has stacked the Shonda Rhimes deck for April 30 with the TGIT EP a guest of the Disney-owned net. Powerhouse producer Rhimes is joined by repeat attendee Kerry Washington, Scandal’s POTUS Tony Goldwyn and co-star Scott Foley. Pushing their breakout FBI drama, NBC News has Blindspot star Jaimie Alexander coming as well as Morning Joe’s Mika Brzezinski and a lot of other talking heads. Priyanka Chopra, the star of ABC’s new FBI drama Quantico, is a guest of TIME in her WHCD debut.

    No doubt like the comedic remarks and audio visual gags expected from headliner Obama and host Wilmore, big media is still finessing who will be bringing their Hollywood to the ballroom. In the meantime, here is the Tinseltown guest list so far – we’ll add more as we get them

    Chrissy Teigen, John Legend welcome baby girl – find out the luminous name

    Singer John Legend and model Chrissy Teigen took to Twitter Sunday (April 17) to let the world know they welcomed their new bundle of joy into the world this past Thursday (April 14).

    “Our new love is here! Luna Simone Stephens, born on Thursday, the 14th. We couldn’t be happier!” tweets Legend. In case you’re wondering, the “Stephens” is from John’s real last name.

    Teigen adds on Instagram, “She’s here! Luna Simone Stephens, we are so in love with you! And sleepy. Very sleepy.” The photo Teigen posted revealed little Luna’s weight to be 6 lbs, 11 oz.

    This is Legend and Teigen’s first child together. They met on the set of his 2007 “Stereo” music video, became engaged in 2011 and married in September 2013.

    Victoria’s Secret model quits after being told to lose weight

    After being told she needed to lose weight, a model decided to walk away from her deal with Victoria’s Secret.

    For five years, blond bombshell Erin Heatherton regularly starred in the lingerie company’s fashion shows and catalogues.

    The former Angel has finally opened up about why she decided to stop modeling for Victoria’s Secret in 2013.

    In an interview with Time magazine, she said: “My last two Victoria’s Secret shows, I was told I had to lose weight.

    “I look back like, ‘Really?’”

    Erin exercised twice a day to prep for her last Victoria’s Secret show, but just couldn’t reach the weight which was specified.

    She remembers: “I was really depressed because I was working so hard and I felt like my body was resisting me.

    “And I got to a point where one night I got home from a workout and I remember staring at my food and thinking maybe I should just not eat.”

    Since deciding to give up her Victoria’s Secret contract, Erin has finally been able to accept herself.

    She said: “I stepped away from hiding behind a fabricated version of myself.

    “I no longer put actions behind my fears and insecurities.”

    Stephanie Seymour due back in court in drunken driving case

    A Connecticut judge is set to decide whether supermodel Stephanie Seymour can enter a program that could lead to the dismissal of a drunken driving charge.

    The former Victoria's Secret and Sports Illustrated model is due back in Stamford Superior Court on Monday.

    A judge is expected to rule on whether Seymour can enter the state's alcohol education program, which includes several weeks of classes or treatment and can lead to charges being dropped.

    Police say the 47-year-old Seymour backed her SUV into another car on a highway exit ramp in her hometown of Greenwich in January. She's also charged with crashing into a utility pole and leaving the scene in another accident the same day.

    Seymour's attorney has said he's confident Seymour wouldn't be charged with driving drunk again.

    Cara Delevingne went through a period of self-hatred

    Cara Delevingne is setting the record straight about her battle with depression — and her career in modeling.

    “I never said I was quitting modeling,” the 23-year-old wrote in a series of tweets on Friday. “I do not blame the fashion industry for anything. I suffer from depression and was a model during a particularly rough patch of self hatred.”

    She continued, “I am so lucky for the work I get to do but I used to work to try and escape and just ended up completely exhausting myself. I am focusing on filming and trying to learn how to not pick apart my every flaw. I am really good at that.”

    In August, Delevingne told the UK-based Times that she wasn’t doing fashion work anymore. Focusing more on acting, she explained that her modeling career left her feeling “hollow” inside.

    “It wasn’t a good time, I was, like, fight and flight for months,” she said. “Just constantly on edge. It is a mental thing as well because if you hate yourself and your body and the way you look, it just gets worse and worse.”

    Iman’s mother dies months after husband David Bowie

    Iman’s mother has died less than three months after her husband David Bowie’s shocking death.

    On Friday morning, the 60-year-old model broke the news via social media.

    “Saddened by the death of my mom Maryan Baadi,” she wrote on Instagram. “May Allah grant her the highest jennah. I beg that you respect my family’s privacy during our time of grief #ripmaryanbaadi.”

    Iman was very vocal about her parents’ activism in a 2014 interview with The Guardian. “My mother was an activist, so was my father,” she said. “They came from a generation of young Somalis who were actively involved in getting independence for Somalia in 1960.”

    “So I remember when I was 5 how busy our house was,” she continued. “People would come in the middle of the night, meetings after meetings, and protests and all that. I grew up in the midst of all of that. And she instilled that in me. The fact that nobody can take your self-worth unless you give your consent.”

    In January, Iman lost her husband of nearly 24 years after a secret battle with cancer. He was 69.

    Weeks later, Bowie’s longtime friend and hairstylist, Teddy Antolin, passed away.

    A request for comment wasn’t immediately returned.

    Naomi Campbell on Her Empire Acting Gig: 'I'm Quiet on Set'

    After a three-month hiatus, Empire is back – and so is Naomi Campbell's character Camilla!

    Though the exiled (and much older) lover of Empire scion Hakeem (Bryshere "Yazz" Gray) is set to take on a bigger role in upcoming episodes Campbell is coy when discussing Camilla's arc in the upcoming season, telling PEOPLE: "Camilla's taking her chance while she can."

    Admittedly, Campbell had no idea how big her role would become. "When Lee [Daniels] asked me to the do this show in the first season, no one knew what was going to happen," she says. "I believe in anything that he does and so of course I'm there and I believed it was going to be successful. But you never know what the writers are going to come up with, you just never know."

    "I think Camilla's quite consistent," Campbell says of her on-air persona. "She's got determination. And she's not going to let anyone get in the way of getting what she wants. She's very ambitious. But I think she's ambitious in a very quiet way. She's not loud about it, she does it sneakily and she surprises people. People don't see her coming. Maybe that's her reserved, English way."

    Like Camilla, Campbell says she lets her work speak for itself. "That's how I've always been. I never discuss [my work]. You see it when it comes out," she says. "For me, it's like an unlucky charm … until I see it I don't believe it."

    In fact, "I'm very quiet on set because, for me, it's a learning experience," she says. "I don't speak very much, I'm just focus on what I have to do and I'm very observant of key things. I'm taking in everything and I'm learning. That's what I'm like when I model. Even when I model today after doing it for almost 30 years, I still am quiet, even when I've known the photographer for 30 years."

    Campbell also reveals that the whole vibe on set is "very professional" and that she's benefited from the talent of her costars. "Terrence [Howard] is so generous to work with," she says. "It's such a blessing to work with him because he's such a great actor. The encouragement he gives me, when he tells me 'You can push a bit more' or 'You did good on that take," that, for me, is just like, 'Oh my God, Terrence Howard is saying that to me?' He's such a great actor, so respected."

    So she doesn't expect perfection as an actor just yet: "I'm not looking for fame," she explains. "I'm already known so it's really about me learning a new craft and trying to do the best I can. I'm learning each day."

    Empire returns Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET on Fox.

    Sean Avery had Hilary Rhoda’s mom fired as manager

    Hilary Rhoda’s mother, Marianne, wanted the model to sign a prenup before marrying retired New York Ranger Sean Avery last year.

    Instead, Marianne was fired as her daughter’s manager, and not invited to the October wedding in Watermill.

    “Hilary and her mother were so close before this guy came along,” a friend of Marianne’s told me.

    Avery — who worked briefly as an intern at Vogue — had tried acting, advertising and flipping houses without much success. Top model Rhoda is known for her work with Estée Lauder and is the current face of Via Spiga.

    “Marianne was trying to protect her daughter’s substantial assets,” said my source.

    Mother and daughter are now enmeshed in lawsuits and countersuits over Marianne’s management contract, which runs through 2016; her compensation; and her use of a company credit card.

    “Sean got Marianne fired, and now he’s in charge. He controls all the people working for Hilary,” Marianne’s friend said.

    Avery allegedly convinced Rhoda to invest with Adam Campbell, who played junior hockey with him and now has a company called Campbell Management Group.

    Marianne — who had Rhoda invest conservatively in real estate — is worried the marriage won’t last long, and that her daughter might suffer losses with riskier gambles.

    Rhoda’s lawyer John Rosenberg told me, “Someone of Hilary’s stature does not comment on personal or legal matters in the tabloids.”

    Avery’s spokesperson had no comment.

    If the marriage ends, Bravo’s Andy Cohen will be there to console his good friend Avery. The “Watch What Happens Live” host said before the wedding: “A gay guy and a straight guy should be able to be friends. Listen, I’d be happy if Sean and I were bangin’ .?.?. but it’s not [happening].”

    Supermodel Janice Dickinson Reveals Breast Cancer Diagnosis

    Former America's Next Top Model judge Janice Dickinson revealed that she has breast cancer in an emotional interview with the Daily Mail.

    The world's first supermodel said that her doctor felt a lump in her right breast during a routine exam earlier this month, and a subsequent biopsy led to the cancer diagnosis.

    Fortunately, doctors say that this form of cancer is generally non-life-threatening, and Dickinson is expected to make a full recovery. She will not have to have a mastectomy, but will require some surgery and radiation therapy.

    Dickinson, for her part, is keeping a positive mental attitude, saying, "I'm Janice Dickinson and I'm gonna stick around for a long, long time. You ain't getting rid of me yet."

    Best wishes to Dickinson for a full recovery!

    Hilary Rhoda’s mom demands $2M from her as legal battle rages on

    Top model Hilary Rhoda’s mother and former manager Marianne Rhoda is demanding that her daughter cough up nearly $2 million in benefits and savings she claims have been illegally withheld from her.

    According to papers filed this month by Marianne against Hilary in New York’s Southern District, she wants $1,352,246 from a benefit plan and $359,584.91 from her for the 401(k) plan.

    The move is just the latest in a bitter legal battle after Hilary first sued her mom in 2014, alleging Marianne stole six figures acting as her manager. Hilary informed her mom via text that she wanted to “take control” of her own career.

    Marianne filed a countersuit this year, claiming she worked as Hilary’s manager for 12 years and was vice president of Rhoda’s company.

    Marianne’s new motion claims she has been denied benefits since being let go from Hilary’s company, HRH Group Inc. Hilary’s side has said Marianne’s position was “insufficient,” that she appointed herself vice president “without Hilary’s consent” and didn’t maintain records of her hours.

    But Marianne’s lawyers claim: “Despite all of its trimmings, this case is merely an attempt by an employer .?.?. to deprive the former employee of pension benefits to which she is expressly entitled.”

    Hilary’s 2014 suit alleged her mother “manipulated her familial role to improperly seize — and then abuse — enormous power over Hilary’s finances,” and used a company credit card “for hundreds of thousands of dollars” in personal ­expenses.

    Marianne has denied the claims and said in court she was worried about her daughter’s financial future with her husband, former New York Ranger Sean Avery, whose work was “sporadic.”

    Marianne’s lawyer had no comment. Hilary’s lawyer, John Rosenberg , told us: “Hilary is fully confident that the proceedings will confirm that Marianne is not entitled to any of the pension funds and that Marianne established, controlled and structured the pension plans principally to benefit herself, and without Hilary’s knowledge funded the plans with Hilary’s money.”

    A-listers chow on McDonald’s at Chrissy Teigen’s baby shower

    Chrissy Teigen may be a best-selling cookbook author, but that doesn’t mean she can’t appreciate the more basic things in life.

    The expectant model served up hashbrowns, french fries, Sausage McMuffins at her baby shower in Los Angeles Saturday afternoon, which was attended by the Kardashian clan, Jenna Dewan-Tatum and other Hollywood elite.

    The entire event was well-documented by Teigen and the three eldest Kardashians on Snapchat, which created a special filter for Teigen’s shower.

    In the snaps, Kourtney Kardashian can be seen professing her love of McDonald’s hashbrowns while Khloe downs glass after glass of rose.

    They also speak in a bizarre British accent for several videos, after mistakenly calling Teigen’s husband — John Legend — John Lennon.

    Despite the low-bro fare, the event was beautifully decorated with a white rose centerpiece and a cake featuring John Legend’s baby photo (accented with a bow, as the baby is female).

    Victoria’s Secret model Candice Swanepoel expecting first child

    Looks like Behati Prinsloo isn’t the only Angel expecting a blessing.

    Victoria’s Secret model Candice Swanepoel ?is pregnant with her first child, E! News reports.

    The 27-year-old blond bombshell — who is engaged to model Hermann Nicoli — is said to be entering her second trimester, a source revealed to the website. And New Yorkers will be privy to baby bump sightings, as the couple plans to spend the summer in the Big Apple.

    A second source revealed that the South African is thrilled to be pregnant as the same time as fellow Angel Prinsloo.

    “Candice and Behati are best friends and they are not far apart from each other in pregnancy due dates. They both have been experiencing the first stages of being pregnant together and are happy to have each other who understand. They can’t wait to be mommies!”

    Swanepoel and Nicoli have been together for about 10 years, since meeting in Paris whens he was just 17. Nicoli hails from Brazil.

    Sports Illustrated model: I had an orgasm doing squats at gym

    Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Jessica White — who recently changed her name to Jypsy to start an acting career — says her trainer’s so good, she had an orgasm doing squats at the gym.

    “He’s the only trainer that’s gotten my ass out of the bed at like 7 a.m.,” White said of personal trainer Robert Brace in an interview with Bikini.com. “I was doing these squats one time, and I was like, ‘Oh my God, this is orgasmic.'” She figures, “Maybe I was squeezing, and doing my kegels? I don’t know what it was … but I had to go to the bathroom. That’s when I realized my body was bigger than me.”

    On her reported relationship with Mariah Carey‘s ex, Nick Cannon, the former former SI model was more guarded, saying they’re “friends” and “Nick and I will always be close no matter what. He has a beautiful heart — it’s not about his looks.”

    But she did reveal that when it comes to looking for a mate, “I greatly admire a man’s arms, but the shallow side of me admires a man’s package. It takes control of you. It shakes up your world in so many different ways … I don’t know.”

    The saucy supermodel also says of her fashion sense, “I’ve got a little nipple action showing. This is how I normally dress … it’s like Pocahontas meets Apollonia. I’m a very free-spirited person.”

    And taking a line from Kanye West‘s playbook, White says of any critics of her burgeoning singing career, “They’re not going to be able to judge me, because I’m [bleeping] great … I’m a [bleeping] artist, and the world has never seen that before.”

    Adriana Lima is divorced

    Adriana Lima is a free woman.

    The Brazilian supermodel has quietly finalized her divorce from Serbian basketball player Marko Jaric, nearly two years after they announced their separation.

    Terms of the settlement, filed Monday in Manhattan Supreme Court, are confidential, but it is believed the Victoria’s Secret Angel will retain primary custody of their two daughters, Valentina, 6, and Sienna, 3.

    Her lawyer Bill Beslow had no comment.

    One of the top-earning models in the world, Lima is said to be worth $65 million. Jaric, 37, who played seven seasons in the NBA, is retired from the sport.

    Lima, 35, a devout Catholic, was engaged to Lenny Kravitz in 2002, but broke it off less than a year later.

    In 2006, she told GQ she was a virgin. “Sex is for after marriage,” she said.

    Since breaking up with Jaric, she’s been photographed in Miami kissing a tattooed-but-unnamed hunk, and there were reports from Cannes that Justin Bieber was pursuing her.

    Jaric, meanwhile, has been linked to Lima look-alike Dusica Savic, a Serbian model more than 10 years Lima’s junior.

    Victoria's Secret Model Erin Heatherton Reveals Past Body Image Struggles

    She may strut down the Victoria's Secret runway in lingerie and pose in a bikini for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, but model Erin Heatherton struggled with her body image like so many others.

    Heatherton, 27, wrote candidly about the doubts she feels in the modeling industry in an Instagram post Thursday night.

    "I was struggling with my body image and the pressures to fulfill the demands of perfectionism upon me," Heatherton says. "I am not perfect."

    But she was able to move past it, and grow from there.

    "Through this struggle, however, I found the strength to love myself," Heatherton writes. "I stood in my power. I look back on that moment now, and I embrace it. This feeling I once perceived as 'failure' was, in truth, a powerful awakening for me to stand behind my purpose in life."

    Heatherton also revealed that she's adopted in another post, and says that colored how she approaches life.

    "Being adopted at a young age, life to me, and everything that came with it occurred to me as, 'lucky,' " she says. "This came with the awareness that not everyone was as luck as me. In my decade long effort to empower women out of poverty and into self-sufficiency via microfinance, I have not been the overnight success I thought I deserved to be."

    "Throughout this tenacious journey dotted by insecurity I always come back to the why I do what I do and think, 'Be who you were before all that stuff happened that dimmed your f-----g shine.' I turn insecurity into relentless drive."

    And now she wants other women to join her in support.

    "I made a choice to redirect my energy to be a catalyst for change," Heatherton says. "To create a channel for women to become the truest versions of themselves, along with me. In the end, if you aren’t being true to yourself, then what the f--- is the point."

    The model, who previously dated Leonardo DiCaprio, is also devoted to her Ballet Beautiful workouts to find her strength.

    “My body is very athletic, so the exercises that really help my body are things that are lengthening,” Heatherton previously told PEOPLE. “I’ve been doing Ballet Beautiful since 2013, and I’m still in the falling-in-love stage. It re-taught me how to stand, and a different way to hold my weight, so it helps me move as a model as well.”

    Heatherton works out almost every day for an hour-and-a-half, but she knows now to give her body time to heal after each intense sweat session.

    “Your ligaments can only heal through rest, and you have to rest if you want to see the results of all your hard work,” she said.

    Bullied for Her Skin Color, Padma Lakshmi Changed Her Name to Angelique in High School

    By all accounts, she's one of the most stunning women on television. But in her new memoir, Love, Loss, And What We Ate, Padma Lakshmi reveals there was a time she wasn't so comfortable in her own skin.

    When Lakshmi sat down with PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly editorial director Jess Cagle to talk about her new book, she said she was mocked for her appearance as a young girl.

    "I was this tall when I was 13 in eighth grade. I had a very long neck, I used to get called E.T., Skeletor, giraffe, you name it," she tells Cagle.

    Lakshmi writes about how, after coming to the U.S., she felt Americans would associate her skin color with third world slums, malaria and "the fragrant foods" of her culture.

    Because of that, she divided herself into two people: one who felt connected to her roots and one who wanted to look more American.

    To feel more similar to her classmates, Lakshmi temporarily changed her name from Padma to Angelique for her four years of high school.

    Watch more of The Jess Cagle Interview with Padma Lakshmi on People.com all week.

    "You can ask anybody who went to high school with me, they didn't call me Padma," she says.

    "I didn't feel any different, I didn't feel any less American, even though I ate rice and curry or even though my name was Padma or I spoke to my mother in a different language, I felt as American as anybody else in my classroom. But they didn't feel I was as American."

    Although her book encompasses her stories about her love for food and for the men in her life, she says it's also a powerful tale of her life as an immigrant.

    "I think you don't have to be Indian to identify with the immigrant experience," she explains. "I think everyone has experienced feeling like an outsider. And it's something that I've carried with me – it's like this invisible shadow that's there because I was always flitting between cultures, so I was never really at home in one, and never really an outsider in the other."

    Padma Lakshmi: I was sexually abused as a child

    Padma Lakshmi addresses being sexually abused at the age of 7 in her new book, “Love, Loss And What We Ate.”

    “Once you take a girl’s innocence, you can never get it back,” the “Top Chef” host told People about being molested by her stepfather’s friend while sharing a two-bedroom apartment in Queens, New York.

    “One night. I woke up to his hands in my underpants,” Lakshmi wrote. “He took my hand and placed it inside his briefs. I don’t know how many times it happened before, since I suspect I slept through some incidents.”

    While Lakshmi, 45, recalled sharing a bed with the man on occasion, describing her living quarters as “a state of affairs, to people like us, who were used to living far too many to an apartment in India, seemed relatively normal,” her mother eventually discovered that something had been troubling her daughter.

    “There was a space between my headboard, the bed and the wall where I’d occasionally toss pink pistachio shells,” she noted. “Once I peed in the space, defiling the place where I’d been defiled.”

    After coming clean to her mother, Lakshmi was sent to India a week later, which had lasting effects.

    “It’s not something I think about that much anymore, but it was the catalyst for a lot of things,” she said. “It was the catalyst for my mother’s divorce, for me going to India. It was the catalyst for me being different about my body and just less open in the world. It was a loss of innocence in a way. What happened to me was not even that bad compared to what happens to many young girls and boys. But it was something that happened. I didn’t want to dwell on it.”

    Lakshmi explained that she is speaking out now in hopes of helping others.

    “I wanted to talk about it because if women like me don’t talk about it, who will,” Lakshmi stated.

    “I think of all those girls who I pass on the street who are in elementary school. I think about my daughter’s classmates or my daughter. It happens more than we think.”

    'I Just Wanted My Own Identity': Padma Lakshmi Reveals Her Blossoming Career Added Strain to Marriage to Salman Rushdie

    When Padma Lakshmi initially began writing her new memoir Love, Loss And What We Ate she tells PEOPLE, "I just started writing a book on health and healthy eating. And the book was supposed to use my own life as an example."

    And so in the course of writing about food, she ended up writing a lot about love and heartbreak, from meeting and falling in love with Salman Rushdie to the painful collapse of their marriage, to falling in love again with billionaire Teddy Forstmann, who died in 2012, and to whom she dedicates the memoir.

    While her love life often made tabloid headlines, it's the first time she reveals the truth about the moment she found out she was pregnant with her daughter, Krishna, and didn't know if the father was Forstmann or Adam Dell, whom she was also dating at the time.

    "Nobody is responsible for my actions except me," says Lakshmi of her memoir's candor."There were a lot of difficult things I went through in a very short intense period under very public circumstances. It was something that affected my family who are very private and it affected people I love, who probably didn't deserve it. And so I needed to be honest and forthright about that."

    She's also honest about her romance with Rushdie. While their early years were full of passion (and a lot of great meals) he bristled as her career blossomed. "I just wanted my own identity," she says. "I was making the transition out of one stage of my life and into another. But in order to do that, it required that I wasn't everywhere that he needed me to be."

    Meanwhile, her severe endometriosis, which was still undiagnosed at that point, often left her in so much chronic pain that she was unable to have sex, leaving Rushdie feeling "rejected."

    "It's not that I didn't want to be there for him, but something was very deeply wrong," she says. "And I didn't understand it. And that caused a whole lot of misunderstanding."

    Their fights grew so intense that at one point he called her "a bad investment."

    Their divorce in 2007 left her heartbroken.

    Slowly, she found healing in cooking her family's home recipes and fulfillment in her work at Top Chef.

    When she met IMG CEO Teddy Forstmann later that year, she says, "It was like meeting Superman and the Tazmanian devil in a package that's more akin to Tony Bennett."

    Though smitten, she was still healing after her split and didn't want to be "tied down." And so when she met Adam Dell, brother of Dell Computer founder Michael Dell, she began dating both men simultaneously.

    "It was no secret to either of these men that the other one existed," she says. "And I was very clear that I didn't want a commitment."

    When she discovered she was pregnant in 2009, she didn't know who the father was.

    "It was tears mixed with worry, mixed with embarrassment, mixed with triumph because I did have a child," she recalls.

    She asked Forstmann to take a paternity test, which revealed he wasn't the father.

    Although she was terrified he might leave her, Forstmann stood by her side and was there in the hospital room when Krishna was born. "He was resolute in making sure I wasn't alone," she says. "This wasn't his child and he held my hand – and he held it very publicly."

    Rupert Murdoch and Jerry Hall are married

    Rupert Murdoch and Jerry Hall were married on Friday in London.

    Murdoch, 84, executive chairman of News Corp. and 21st Century Fox and chairman of the New York Post, and former supermodel Hall, 59, tied the knot in a civil ceremony at Spencer House, an 18th-century townhouse.

    The couple, who announced their engagement in January in the Times of London, will celebrate their marriage at a ceremony attended by their children at St. Bride’s Church on Saturday.

    The 1672 house of worship is known as “the Journalists’ Church” because of its presence on Fleet Street, the historic heart of the British newspaper industry, and is considered the “spiritual home” of those who work in media.

    Amazon Attracted To ‘Endorsed’ With Cindy Crawford

    Amazon has fast-tracked development of a new reality series, Endorsed. Nope, it’s not about the presidential election cycle — that storyline has become too improbable for reality TV. This show is a behind-the-scenes look at celebrity endorsements, and stars supermodel Cindy Crawford.

    Each episode will focus on pairing a celebrity looking for a brand attachment with a budding business. Crawford, who knows a thing or two about choosing such partnerships, lent her image to endorse products and brands and will meet with a team of leading business and branding moguls to evaluate each celebrity’s needs. They’ll narrow the field of options down to two businesses. Then begins the process of coming up with an ideal match.

    After the celebrity hears the team’s expert advice, he or she will visit each business, on site, and meet with the business’ leaders to discuss how an endorsement partnership could be realized. Each business will pitch the celeb not only their product and business model, but also how the company would use the celebrity’s image in an endorsement.

    Bill Cosby Drops Defamation Suit Against Supermodel Beverly Johnson

    Bill Cosby's attorneys are asking a judge to dismiss a defamation lawsuit the comic filed against model Beverly Johnson in December, citing their client's need to devote his full attention to his pending criminal case, TMZ reports.

    Cosby filed the suit against Johnson in December, saying that Johnson's accusations that he drugged and attempted to rape her back in the '80s are false and defamatory. His attorneys plan to refile the case after the criminal case is decided.

    He is currently tied up in litigation with a group of seven women where both parties are suing the other for defamation, as well as his pending criminal case on aggravated indecent assault charges.

    Johnson is one of more than 50 women to accuse Cosby of sexual assault. She has publicly forgiven Cosby for his alleged actions.

    Naomi Campbell Shares What It's Really Like to Work for Kanye West

    Kanye West may have his critics, but Naomi Campbell isn’t one of them. The supermodel gushed about West after starring in his recent fashion show, telling PeopleStyle he’s “great to work for.”

    “It was a great experience, and I had a lot of fun” Campbell shared at the Burberry fashion show in London’s Kensington Gardens on Monday, adding: “I’ve never done a fashion show where I’m sitting there in a concert hall!”

    The supermodel was the big star of the West’s highly anticipated Yeezy Season 3 fashion show during New York Fashion Week, in which the rapper-turned-designer showcased both his new album The Life of Pablo and his latest Yeezy collection to a celeb-packed audience.

    And Campbell didn’t hesitate taking the gig.

    “When they asked me I said, ‘Okay, I’ve been to Madison Square Gardens to see lots of concerts, but I’ve never actually worked at Madison Square Garden, and that’s a different thing! I said, ‘Yes, I want to do it, I want to be part of this experience!'”

    With a list of instructions, West was very specific as to how his models should behave (no smiling, no looking into the camera, they basically stood stationary for approximately one hour). “He knows exactly what he wants, what he’s saying, what he does, everything!” said the 45-year-old British model.

    Wearing a floor-length fur coat, Campbell appeared briefly on the stage and joining fellow model vets Alek Wek and Veronica Webb. But making it to the stage had been somewhat of a scramble. “I was in my dressing room and then suddenly it was like ‘He wants you now,’ so I had to be ready in a second, but it was fun!”

    Ski injury sidelines Kate Moss

    Supermodel Kate Moss has been injured in a ski accident. The British beauty apparently suffered torn ligaments after crashing in the Swiss Alps, Page Six has learned.

    Moss, who’s a regular in the posh resort town of Gstaad, says she took a tumble and tore ligaments in her knee on Thursday. Sources said she was due to return to London on Friday to be seen by her personal doctors. It is still unclear if she’ll need surgery.

    Moss was due to be the main attraction at the Monday opening of Saks Fifth Avenue in Toronto, the retailer’s first store in Canada, but had to pull out after her doctors banned her from taking a long-haul flight due to her injury.

    The model had been paid handsomely to appear as an ambassador for luxury skin-care line Decorté, and was due to attend a VIP cocktail reception at the store on Sunday, followed by an in-store meet and greet on Monday.

    Moss said in a statement to those expecting her at the event: “It is with great disappointment that I must postpone my trip to be a part of the ­Decorté and Saks Fifth Avenue launch celebration due to an injury whilst skiing [.?.?.] in Switzerland. I am currently under medical care which prohibits me to fly overseas for now.” She added, “[I] will make every effort to reschedule my visit to the fabulous city of Toronto as soon as I am able to travel.”

    A source at the event told us, “Of course it is extremely disappointing, as the whole event was based around her, but everyone is glad Kate is OK. It could have been a lot worse.”

    In July, Moss landed a multiyear deal with Japanese skin-care line Decorté and recently shot their campaign with Mario Testino.

    A rep for Moss — who reportedly has previously struggled to get a US visa due to her drug past — declined to comment on Saturday night.

    Moss isn’t the only legendary model battling an injury. This week, Naomi Campbell was spotted at JFK in a wheelchair, then walking with a cane. Her rep said she’s recovering from a “light foot injury” but declined to elaborate.

    Carol Alt is a supporter of Charlie Sheen’s alternative doctor

    Carol Alt is a fan of Samir “Sam” Chachoua, the alternative medicine practitioner who injected himself with Charlie Sheen’s blood while treating the wild star for HIV.

    Alt, who appears on the doc’s Web site’s testimonial page saying she saw him help patients with multiple sclerosis and breast cancer, told us at Dennis Basso’s runway show on Tuesday: “I saw [Chachoua] work with several people, and they had amazing results. I can’t deny that,” adding, “I don’t know what Charlie’s experience is, and I’m not negating what he went through.”

    Chachoua has claimed he has an HIV cure, but Sheen is back on traditional meds.

    “I don’t know what the doctor’s instructions to Charlie were,” Alt said. “And I don’t know what other health issues Charlie may have been suffering from that the doctor may have backed off and said, ‘Let’s fix this first.’ From the girls I saw who shared with me, they had results.”

    After Sheen was treated by Chachoua, HIV/AIDS activist Peter Staley angrily wrote of Chachoua that Sheen had gone “to Mexico to seek a miracle cure from a scam artist even Dr. Oz hasn’t heard of.”

    Cindy Crawford's Ex-Husband Richard Gere Is 'Like a Stranger' to Her: 'I Don't Know If We Were Ever Friends'

    Cindy Crawford is opening up about her past marriage to Richard Gere, admitting that 20 years after their divorce, the actor has become "like a stranger" to her.

    "I didn't think I was young, though, but I was young," she said during an appearance on Marc Maron's WTF podcast. "I was with Richard for, like, six years, but I was only married for two years."

    The supermodel was 26 when she tied the knot with the then 42-year-old Gere in 1991. The couple officially split four years later, in 1995.

    Asked if Crawford, now 49, is still on good terms with the Pretty Woman star, she replied, "We're friendly, but I think it's almost like he's gone back to being, like, 'Richard Gere' again, like a stranger, because we don't really see each other that much."

    She continued, "I think part of the problem in our relationship was that we were a lot of other things, but I don't know if we were ever friends – like peers, because I was young, and he was Richard Gere.

    "And then, as I started kind of growing up and growing into myself – it's hard to change the nature of a relationship once you're already in it."

    Back in 1995, the model told PEOPLE of her marriage to Gere: "We didn't spend enough time together. And we're equally responsible for that. We thought it would be okay if we just flew in from Paris to L.A. to get together for a night to see each other. It wasn't."

    Fortunately, Crawford says things are different with her current husband, Rande Gerber, whom she'll have been married to for 18 years in May.

    "I think why Rande and I really work is that we were friends first," she explained. "I never pretended to like baseball or meditation or whatever the version is."

    Gerber and Crawford have two children together: Presley, 16, and Kaia, 14. Gere, meanwhile, separated from actress Carey Lowell in 2013 after 11 years of marriage.

    Janice Dickinson’s defamation suit against Cosby thrown out

    A Los Angeles judge on Tuesday tossed a defamation lawsuit by Janice Dickinson against Bill Cosby and his lawyer — though the model’s underlying sexual assault complaint against the actor will go forward.

    Dickinson accused Cosby of raping her in 1982, which prompted the actor’s lawyer Marty Singer to brand her a “liar.”

    Dickinson amended her lawsuit to include a defamation claim against the men, which was tossed on Tuesday by LA County Superior Court Judge Debra Weintraub, according to Deadline Hollywood.

    “The primary focus of this case has always been against Bill Cosby and remains against Bill Cosby,” Dickinson’s lawyer Lisa Bloom said following the brief hearing. “We will continue to fight the case against Bill Cosby.”

    Cosby, Dickinson and Singer were not in court when Weintraub ruled from the bench. Weintraub ordered both sides back to court on Feb. 29.

    Stephanie Seymour Faces New Charges in Connection to January DUI Arrest

    Supermodel Stephanie Seymour is facing new charges in Connecticut related to her Jan. 15 arrest for allegedly driving while intoxicated.

    Seymour, 47, turned herself in to the Greenwich Police on Monday after a warrant was issued for her arrest.

    On Jan. 15, Seymour was involved in a car accident in Greenwich. While stopped at an intersection, Seymour allegedly put her Land Rover in reverse, colliding with a Mercedes-Benz.

    The accident caused Seymour's vehicle to roll onto its side, police say.

    The new charges allege Seymour struck a telephone pole in Greenwich prior to her accident with the Mercedes.

    Investigators had noticed some front-end damage to the vehicle last month and connected Seymour's vehicle to the mangled utility pole, police said.

    In addition to driving while intoxicated, Seymour now faces additional charges for evading responsibility and failure to drive in a proper lane.

    It was not clear Friday whether Seymour has an attorney. She is due to appear in court on Feb. 7 to answer to the charges against her.

    Why Amber Valletta Feels 'Safer' Working with Female Photographers

    Amber Valletta defined the model BFF squad decades before Kendall Jenner and Cara Delevingne. She was a reigning queen on the 1990s supermodel scene, posing alongside Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista and of course her bestie, Shalom Harlow. These days she’s switched her focus to acting, but still lands major fashion spreads. Her latest? The cover of Porter‘s all-women photography issue where she talks about why she prefers working with female photographers and how the industry has changed since she started at 15.

    Having worked with just about every fashion photographer throughout her modeling tenure, she explains why she’ll always prefer a female photographer over a male. “I always feel safe with a woman photographer. I feel that no matter how they interpret something, they understand all sides of it,” Valletta shares in Porter. “Because they are women, and women are complex creatures. Men can appreciate it, but women get it. We internalize everything.”

    But she does give the industry credit for embracing all types of different body shapes and ethnicities, more so than when she started.

    “Women are really coming into their own. When we look back on this time, we are going to see a real shift… in equality, in pay structure, in running companies, in coding,” she says, adding. “Maybe even in the presidency. Hopefully.”

    Valletta left home to model at 15, and she says looking back, she’s surprised her mom let her go.

    “I think she was really naïve. We were naïve, both of us. We were all naïve,” she says. “Everybody’s constantly growing. It’s just whether or not you’re observing it or not, you know? In your 20s you can learn a lot and you can be very smart and clever and savvy. Especially these kids today. They seem like they have it all together. But let’s talk to them again when they’re 40 years old and see really who they are. Is it who they thought they were at 25?”

    Now that her early career days are behind her, Valletta adds that turning 40 marked a major milestone in her life.

    “I feel so much more aware of who I am today as a woman since I turned 40,” she explains. “I don’t know, it’s kind of like the light bulb clicks on and you’re like, ‘Okay, who I used to be is sort of behind me. Who do I want to be and how do I want to live for the next 20 good years?'”

    Along with her interview, the star resurrects the ’90s slip dress she made so iconic (proof in the photo below) in a sultry spread saying, “What made it [the slip dress] stand out then was that it hadn’t been seen in a while. It was so minimalistic — more minimalistic than it is today, even. But fashion always references itself.”

    To see the full interview with Amber Valletta, pick up the all-women photography issue of Porter which hits stands Friday, Feb. 5.

    Shanina Shaik on Her Engagement to DJ Ruckus: 'It Was Quick, But It Feels Right'

    Shanina Shaik’s engagement to DJ Ruckus [a.k.a. Greg Andrews] was certainly a whirlwind, but the Victoria’s Secret model says that some things are just meant to be.

    “Yes, I was truly surprised,” Shaik confessed to Ocean Drive magazine in a recent interview. “I’ve been with Greg for about nine months now, so it was really quick, but it feels right. We’re best friends, and we’re obviously very much in love, and we have lots of fun with each other. We understand each other’s life and career, and I think that’s important as well. I was super happy and so excited that he asked me to marry him.”

    And now, just a month after DJ Ruckus popped the question, Shaik says she’s already in the midst of planning her big day, which, she says will most likely be a small ceremony in a tropical locale, much like where they got engaged (that would be Lenny Kravitz’s private island, of course).

    “I think every girl pretty much dreams about what she would like for her wedding day, but I’m also not very traditional,” she said. “I actually want a small wedding; I don’t want a big, poufy dress. I want to be on a beach. I think those things will definitely happen.”

    When she’s not busy brainstorming bridesmaid dresses and floral arrangements, the 24-year-old can most likely be found on set, working alongside fellow Victoria’s Secret models, including Adriana Lima, who, Shaik says, she was compared often compared to when she first entered the industry.

    “When I came to New York, the first week pretty much, [Victoria’s Secret] was interested in me. There was talk that I looked like Adriana Lima, and I couldn’t see that at all,” she told the mag. “At the age of 17, they were telling me I was so sexy, and I didn’t understand that — I was like, ‘I’m not doing anything, though…’ I was still so young, and at that time, they didn’t have Pink.”

    “When I was 20, I really came into myself as being more of a woman,” she added. “My body changed, elongated, stretched out; I got rid of my baby fat on my face, and I booked the show. For any model to book the Victoria’s Secret show, it changes their career. It’s always been a dream of mine.”

    And through it all, Shaik says Lima was the first supermodel to truly welcome her into the tight-knit family of Angels, and Shaik still looks to her as a role model.

    “When I did my first show, I didn’t know anybody else, I didn’t do any high-fashion work at that point, so I was really still kind of brand-new to the industry,” she told Ocean Drive. “I was sitting by myself, waiting to do rehearsals, and Adriana was the first person [who] came up to me and asked who I was, asked how I am, and complimented me. She’s really such a beautiful, down-to-earth girl.”

    Shaik also explained that her parents are conservative (she was raised Muslim until her parents divorced), but they’re still incredibly supportive of her endeavors. “My dad is super understanding; he loves his children. He says whatever makes me happy makes him happy. He knows I’m smart and have my head on straight,” she said. “I have goals with my career, and he knows that I’ll always respect myself.”

    She added that it helps her parents respect her No. 1 employer: “Victoria’s Secret is a brand that showcases a woman being fit, beautiful, healthy and having confidence, but is also respectful, too, so I’m not doing anything too over-the-top or raunchy. I think that would be doing an issue if that were the case."

    Cindy Crawford announces her retirement

    Say hello to Cindy Crawford at 50 — and now say goodbye.

    The fashion icon tells United Airlines’ Rhapsody magazine that she plans to retire from modeling this month after she celebrates her half-century birthday on Feb. 20.

    “I’m sure I’ll have my picture taken for 10 more years, but not as a model anymore,” Crawford says in the magazine’s February edition. “And that’s OK. I’ve done it. I’ve worked with all these incredible photographers.

    What else do I need to do? I can’t keep reinventing myself.

    I shouldn’t have to keep proving myself. I don’t want to.”

    David Bowie leaves Iman roughly half of his fortune

    David Bowie‘s will was filed in Manhattan court Friday — and the rock and roll legend’s dying wish was to have his ashes scattered on the island nation of Bali in accordance with Buddhist rituals.

    The singer also sprinkled his riches on his wife, model Iman, and two children, Duncan Jones and Lexi Zahra Jones.

    The pop-culture icon was worth around $100 million when he died earlier this month of cancer.

    Iman will receive roughly half of his fortune plus the couple’s home on Lafayette Street in Manhattan. His daughter gets his Ulster County home in upstate New York.

    His children will split whatever’s left of the money.

    Bowie also gave $2 million to his friend and personal assistant, Corinne Coco Schwab, and $1 million to his son Duncan’s former nanny, Marion Skene.

    Tyra Banks is Now a Mom

    Never mind any TV show woes, Tyra Banks has bigger things on her hands these days. Well, smaller things actually: lots of baby clothes! The model and entrepreneur is now a mom, after her surrogate gave birth to a boy named Yorks Banks Asla. Banks made the announcement on Instagram Wednesday.

    Banks, who has been candid about her fertility difficulties in the past, wrote on Instagram, "As we thank the angel of a woman that carried our miracle baby boy for us, we pray for everyone who struggles to reach this joyous milestone. York Banks Asla, welcome to the world."

    Yorks is the first child for 42-year-old Banks; his father is her boyfriend, photographer Erik Asla. Congratulations to the parents!

    ABC Orders 1970s Model Wars Drama Pilot Inspired By Eileen Ford Biography

    ABC has given a pilot order to Model Woman, a soapy period drama set in the fashion world.

    The project, from Sony TV’s TriStar Television, is a fictionalized family soap inspired by Robert Lacey’s book, Model Woman: Eileen Ford and the Business of Beauty, the recently published biography of the outspoken and controversial woman who started as a model and went on to co-found the famous Ford Modeling Agency with her husband Jerry.

    Written by Reality Bites scribe Helen Childress, the show is set in the late 1970’s during the notorious Model Wars and centers on Bertie Geiss – a tempestuous matriarch and uncompromising businesswoman at the helm of an internationally renowned modeling agency. Anonymous Content’s Rosalie Swedlin serves as executive producer alongside Childress and Lacey’s daughter Scarlett.

    This marks the first broadcast pilot for TriStar TV, which was relaunched last summer. Lacey’s book was originally optioned by Sony TV a year ago with a different writer, KJ Steinberg. I hear ABC earlier this development season pursued the project, and Childress was brought in on board to pen it.

    Ford’s keen eye for talent and her shrewd entrepreneurial instincts turned the business of modeling into one of the most glamorous and desired professions, and turned many of her stable of beauties — Suzy Parker, Lauren Hutton, Rene Russo, Christie Brinkley, Jerry Hall, Naomi Campbell — into millionaire superstars. Many of these women also became part of the Ford family household as Eileen took them into her New York brownstone when they were still teens and nurtured them alongside her own four children.

    TriStar TV’s first pilot, another female-centered period drama, Good Girls Revolt, went to series at Amazon. The company has two other pilots at the streaming service, The Last Tycoon starring Matt Bomer and The Interestings.

    Childress is repped by Original Artists and Bob Getman.

    Supermodel Stephanie Seymour arrested for DUI

    Supermodel Stephanie Seymour found herself on the wrong side of the law on Friday night.

    The 47-year-old former Estée Lauder cover girl was arrested for driving under the influence, in Greenwich, CT., reports TMZ.

    Seymour was at a stop sign at an off-ramp on I-95 when she put her 2015 Range Rover in reverse and hit the driver behind her.

    At the scene, the mother of four refused to take a field sobriety test and the arresting officer says she smelled of alcohol, was wobbly on her feet and had bloodshot eyes.

    Seymour has received treatment for substance abuse in the past. As cited in a New York Times article, in 2000 the catwalk queen was admitted into the Silver Hill Hospital, a luxury rehab facility in Connecticut, for Vicodin addiction.

    A request for comment from her team was not immediately returned.

    Adriana Lima is working to help Haiti

    Haiti is so poor, Brazilian beauty Adriana Lima has dedicated herself to helping out the earthquake-ravaged hellhole.

    Lima has visited Haiti twice in the past year, she told the crowd at the Garage on 11th Avenue, where fellow Brazilian Jayma Cardoso and designer Kenneth Cole were helping to raise money Thursday night to support a hospital there.

    Also on hand was Marek Paliwoda, a dermatology physician assistant who goes to Haiti three times a year to provide skin cancer screenings.

    Hilary Rhoda sues mom for stealing ‘six figures’ worth of money

    Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Hilary Rhoda is suing her own mom/former manager for allegedly stealing six figures from her, Page Six has exclusively learned.

    The mother-daughter legal war also reveals that Hilary’s mom disapproves of her new husband, Sean Avery, claiming in a countersuit this week that after leaving the NHL his work was “sporadic” and “prospects for employment were highly speculative.”

    In a case that has never before come to light, Hilary sued Marianne Rhoda in federal court in 2014, claiming her mom “manipulated her familial role to improperly seize — and then abuse — enormous power over Hilary’s finances.” The suit claims Marianne forged Hilary’s signature, diverted “substantial funds” for her retirement, refused to provide accounting records and used a company credit card “for hundreds of thousands of dollars” in personal expenses — including “divorce attorneys,” a “pool vendor” and shopping trips to Neiman Marcus, Barneys and someplace called Carpet Palace of Bethesda.

    The suit further claims Marianne used her daughter’s funds as a “personal piggy bank,” including a 2009 withdrawal of $1 million plus wire transfers of more than $1.9 million to Marianne’s personal account and “vendors .?.?. with no apparent association” to Hilary’s modeling work.

    The papers also allege that when Hilary became engaged to Avery, her mother began “a constant barrage of ad hominem attacks” on him and left Hilary “extremely exasperated.”

    But Marianne’s just-filed countersuit denied all the allegations and claimed breach of contract. She says that because of Avery, she was “concerned” for Hilary’s financial future, and “Avery prevailed upon [Hilary] to refrain from seeking a prenuptial agreement and embarked on a concerted effort to estrange” her mom.

    Marianne didn’t attend Hilary’s October wedding. Avery was arrested in Southampton Village, Long Island, days before the nuptials on criminal mischief charges and criminal possession of a controlled substance.

    Reps for Hilary and her mom had no comment.

    Media Mogul Rupert Murdoch and Retired Model Jerry Hall Are Engaged

    Rupert Murdoch, the 84-year-old multi-billionaire chairman of News Corp, and Jerry Hall, the 59-year-old former top model and ex-partner of Mick Jagger, announced their engagement in British newspaper The Times, which is owned by Murdoch, on Monday.

    Murdoch and Hall have been dating since late summer, and made their relationship public in October. They appeared together at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday, and had gotten engaged over the weekend.

    This will be Murdoch's fourth marriage, and first legal marriage for Hall (she was in a relationship with the Rolling Stones frontman from 1977 to 1999 and has four children with him, but their marriage was annulled). Murdoch has six children, including two teenage daughters with third wife Wendi Deng, whom he divorced in 2013.

    'I Still Fancy Him After All These Years': David Bowie and Iman's Romantic Love Story in Their Own Words

    They were together for 25 years and had a cosmic connection. Still, Iman once said she never fell in love with David Bowie.

    "I fell in love with David Jones," the Somali-American supermodel told the Guardian in 2014, referring to the given name of the English rock legend, who died Sunday at age 69.

    "Bowie is just a persona," she explained. "He's a singer, an entertainer. David Jones is a man I met."

    Indeed, they managed to live – and treasure – a normal life together, despite the megafame that came with being the ultimate global trailblazers in their respective fields.

    PEOPLE visited their New York City apartment in 2005, and found the family – with then-5-year-old daughter Lexi – to be the image of domesticity.

    "We are very normal," Iman said, explaining that she cooked dinner for her husband every night, that she took Lexi to music and dance lessons, and that Bowie and Lexi would play music together all the time.

    Of his entrepreneur wife, Bowie told PEOPLE at the time: "She's uncanny at keeping the business at her office and the woman at home. But she's a mom 24/7."

    Not that Iman – whose full name is Iman Mohamed Abdulmajid – was even looking for love when she first met her future husband in 1990. (They would marry – both for the second time – two years later in a private ceremony in Lausanne, Switzerland.)

    "I was not ready for a relationship," Iman told the Guardian. "Definitely I didn't want to get into a relationship with somebody like him."

    But the attraction was instant and undeniable. Weeks before their 1992 wedding, Bowie gushed to PEOPLE about the "overwhelming beauty" of his bride-to-be, describing her as "a smoky blend of Sophia Loren and Audrey Hepburn."

    Iman, too, was smitten. She had already honored her fiancé by having a Bowie knife tattooed on her right ankle. "My life is good," she told PEOPLE.

    Some two decades later, in 2010, Iman described their relationship to Harper's Bazaar as utterly complementary, and said their romance was as passionate as ever.

    "David doesn't fight," she said. "He is English, so he just stays quiet. I'm the screamer. Then he always makes me laugh. It's like cabaret. I keep him entertained, too. I still fancy him – totally! – after all these years."

    She added: "My father … taught me how to be a parent and gave me a positive connection with men because he is a gentleman. And that is what attracted me to David. He is a gentle soul."

    As as Bowie told PEOPLE in 2005, the couple had no problem keeping their romance alive. "Mouth-to-mouth resuscitation generally does the trick!" he said.

    Iman expressed heartache over Bowie on Twitter

    In the days before her husband died, David Bowie‘s supermodel wife took to Twitter to express her heartache — and hope.

    “Sometimes you will never know the true value of a moment until it becomes a memory,” Iman posted on Saturday.

    And hours before Bowie’s death was announced on his website Sunday, the 60-year-old wrote: “The struggle is real, but so is God.”

    Iman spent Friday retweeting birthday shout outs to her hubby, who had just turned 69.

    That same day she tweeted: “Life isn’t about avoiding the bruises. It’s about collecting the scars to prove we showed up for it.”

    Iman married Bowie in 1992 and had a daughter, Alexandria, with him eight years later.

    She is yet to make a statement about Bowie’s death, but a statement from his publicist said the singer was surrounded by his family when he passed “peacefully.”

    Supermodel Rachel Hunter feels pressure to keep up looks

    Even supermodels feel pressure to keep up their looks.

    Rachel Hunter confesses she has considered plastic surgery after feeling "horrified" seeing photos of herself. The 46-year-old former Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover model took to wearing scarves to hide her jowls.

    "In real life I was fairly happy with myself. In photos I was horrified," she said. "People were like, 'Why don't you get rid of those deep lines (around her mouth)?'"

    Hunter, who has two grown children with ex-husband Rod Stewart, changed her opinion once she began working on her new Ovation series "Rachel Hunter's Tour of Beauty." The 13-episode show debuting Jan. 17 takes viewers around the globe to discover indigenous beauty secrets and how beauty is defined in different cultures.

    "After going on this journey and seeing other cultures away went that superficial idea of beauty," she said. "Ideas of beauty are old and need to be shattered. We have no self-acceptance. If we don't enjoy who we are then how can you offer fully any sense of beauty or well-being or longevity?"

    Beverly Johnson Weighs in On Bill Cosby's Arraignment: 'Truth Is Simple'

    Beverly Johnson has weighed in on Bill Cosby's arraignment.

    The former model took to twitter to express her thoughts on Wednesday's court proceedings.

    "When it comes down to it, truth is simple," Johnson, 63, tweeted. "There is nothing that we give to others that does not come back to us in some shape of form."

    The comedian was charged earlier today for allegedly drugging and sexually assaulting former Temple University employee Andrea Constand at his Elkins Park, Pennsylvania mansion in January 2004.

    Cosby, 78, did not enter a plea, but has continuously denied all allegations. He later posted his $1 million bail and was ordered to surrender his passport.

    Constand's case are the first criminal charges to be brought against Cosby after more than 50 women accused him of sexual assault.

    Johnson is among the many accusers and even discussed the alleged incident in her memoir.

    Earlier this month, Cosby added Johnson to the list of seven other women who he is suing for defamation. The news came via a tweeted statement from his lawyer, saying that the suit was brought against Johnson "for her false, malicious, opportunistic and defamatory accusations that Mr. Cosby drugged her."

    The statement asked that the actress remove the chapter about Cosby from her memoir as well as publicly recanting her comments about Cosby.

    Johnson later responded to the suit in a statement to PEOPLE.

    "I am aware of the statements from Bill Cosby. In cases of rape and abuse, abusers will do whatever they can to intimidate and weaken their victims to force their victims to stop fighting," she said. "I ask for your support of all of the victims involved. Thank you."

    Supermodel Naomi Campbell Spotted in a Wheelchair After Injuring Her Foot

    (Pic) Looks like Naomi Campbell may need to take a break from the catwalk.

    The supermodel, 45, was spotted December 23 at Guaraulhos International Airport in Sao Paulo, Brazil being pushed in a wheelchair by a male companion. She also appears to be using a cane for assistance.

    In light of this sighting, a representative for Campbell tells PEOPLE that the model has not in fact been seriously injured. "Whilst it is a private matter, it is a light foot injury which Naomi sustained before her visit to London," says the rep. "She is out and about as usual. There is no scheduled surgery."

    Concerns about the iconic model's health started with reports from UK paper The Sun that she needed help walking following an appearance at the London premiere of The Danish Girl on December 8.

    On December 15, she was spotted at JFK airport with a splint on her left middle finger.

    Supermodel Bar Refaeli Arrested on Suspicion of Tax Evasion in Israel

    Supermodel Bar Refaeli, Maxim's hottest woman in the world of 2012, and her mother were arrested in Israel on Wednesday on charges of tax evasion, Agence France-Presse reports.

    Refaeli's home was raided and she was taken into custody on the orders of Israel's Tax Authority. She is suspected of failing to report the equivalent of millions of U.S. dollars in income earned outside of Israel. Israeli nonresident citizens are exempt from reporting income from outside the country, so she allegedly lied about her permanent residence, claiming she lived in another country when really she was living in Tel Aviv. Her mother Zipora was also arrested on suspicion of tax evasion.

    She's also charged with accepting gifts of luxury apartments and vehicles and not registering under her name.

    This is not the first time Leonardo DiCaprio's ex-girlfriend has been accused of evading something: She avoided mandatory military service by entering a brief alleged sham marriage in 2004.

    Adriana Lima Shuts Down Justin Bieber Dating Rumors, Says 'Anybody Below 6-Foot-7' Is Just a 'Friend'

    Adriana Lima is setting the record straight about Justin Bieber.

    The Victoria's Secret Angel appeared on Watch What Happens Live Thursday to chat about the lingerie company's Fashion Show, but instead the single supermodel had to address rumors she dated the pop star.

    "I read somewhere that you and Justin Bieber hung out. Did you two ever date?" host Andy Cohen asked.

    It appeared this was the first time Lima, 34, got wind of those rumors as she replied, "Where did you hear that?! Where?" She also gave a sassy eye roll!

    Speculations of a romance between the pair surfaced back in May 2014, just weeks after the mother of two separated from estranged husband Marko Jaric.

    Bieber and Lima were spotted partying together in the French Riviera during the 67th annual Cannes Film Festival, and reportedly even shared a quick hookup.

    But the Brazilian bombshell is very specific when it comes to her love life, and Bieber doesn't meet her strict height requirement. "Anybody below 6-foot-7, you know how I call them? Friends," she said. Unfortunately the 21-year-old singer is only 5-foot-9.

    Fellow guest Padma Lakshmi saw a plus side in favor of Bieber adding, "He would be right at [her] boobs. It would be perfect for him!"

    Tyra Banks ditches the ‘FABLife’ for makeup

    Well, that certainly didn’t take long. Tyra Banks has announced she’s leaving her new talk show “FABLife” after only two months.

    The reason for her exit? The “America’s Next Top Model” creator and star wants to focus on her line of cosmetics, TYRA Beauty. In a statement to the Hollywood Reporter, Banks says, “I will be devoting more time to my new, growing cosmetics company, TYRA Beauty, which is expanding faster than anticipated, as well as overseeing my company’s other entertainment ventures. I will however continue to support the growth and success of ‘FABLife’ and greatly admire my fellow co-hosts and the talented production team behind the show.”

    She calls the decision to leave “difficult, but necessary.”

    The show will continue on without her, though. Remaining co-hosts Chrissy Teigen, Joe Zee, Lauren Makk and Leah Ashley plan to remain with the series.

    “FABLife” was Banks’ first foray into talk shows after “The Tyra Banks Show” ended in 2010. Now with “America’s Next Top Model” wrapping up its final season in December, it’ll be the first time in over a decade that Banks hasn’t had a regular presence on TV.

    Karlie Kloss can’t help but love Justin Bieber’s new album

    Karlie Kloss doesn’t want to like Justin Bieber’s album, but has succumbed to the pop star’s tunes.

    Spies said the former Victoria’s Secret model was working out at SLT Soho on a contraption called a Megaformer and bopping to the Biebs.

    “She was stretching and rocking out when she turned to a fellow classmate and said [of Bieber’s new record], ‘I really don’t want to like it, but it’s just too good,’” a spy observed.

    Bieber’s in a war to beat One Direction on the charts after they released albums on the same day.

    Karolina Kurkova welcomes second child

    Karolina Kurkova is a second-time mom.

    The supermodel and husband Archie Drury have welcomed a baby boy, who joins 6-year-old brother Tobin, a rep for Kurkova confirmed to Page Six on Thursday.

    Page Six exclusively revealed in July that the couple was expecting their second child. Kurkova, 31, and Drury walked down the aisle in 2009.

    The former Victoria’s Secret stunner has shared pregnancy photos via social media along the way, and just last week posted a family snapshot with her enviable bikini body — and large baby bump — front and center on the beach.

    Karolina Kurkova: 'It Takes About a Whole Week to Rinse Off All the Sparkle' After a Victoria's Secret Show

    If you’ve seen every photo and read every word about last night’s Victoria’s Secret fashion show, you may wonder what the Angels are up to now. And we have a pretty good idea, thanks to Victoria’s Secret alumna Karolina Kurkova.

    “I think it’s funny that all of us are were there in our little underwear and outfits and we’re being layered up: a layer of lotion, a layer of bronzer. Every bit of your body is covered — it’s kind of hysterical,” Kurkova shares with PeopleStyle. “If a normal person looks in they would think it’s crazy. Every angle, every crease is oiled and bronzed, and it’s not something you do every day so it’s kind of funny.”

    And when she says every crease she’s not exaggerating. “Even in between every finger is glowing and sparkly, because those cameras are everywhere and you want your skin to look great,” she says. “So I think that’s always very funny to see all of these beautiful women and their beautiful body parts being greased up.”

    The not-so-funny part? De-Angelizing the next day. “It takes about a whole week to rinse off and get rid of all the sparkle and glow in all of these different places after the show’s over,” she shares.

    These days she keeps her beauty routine way more pared down (way more). She says she only keeps products that are “quick and easy” but still retain good quality in her makeup bag. “I’m not someone who has all that time, it’s not like I can spend two hours getting ready — and I don’t want to,” she says. “I have so many other things to do — I want to spend time with my family, with my son, make him dinner — so I can’t spend two hours putting on my mascara or foundation.”

    Molly Sims once thought she was ‘so heavy’ she walked 14 miles a day

    Being a Victoria’s Secret Angel is a career peak most models only dream of, but Molly Sims never got to enjoy her time in the role.

    “I would go to the ashram, I would walk 14 miles a day,” the model-turned-actress, 42, said about her struggle with body image while modeling during a recent appearance on HuffPost Live. “It was very difficult to stay the weight that you were supposed to stay. For me, I’m genetically blessed in certain ways, but in terms of having the weight be a certain size 0, it was very hard. I didn’t eat sometimes for a couple of days.”

    Even though she was fit enough to be a popular model, Sims still thought she could lose some weight.

    “It goes back to that whole picture thing,” she said. “You never think you look good in the moment. Then you see that picture five years later and you go, ‘Damn, girl, I look good.’ I look back at those pictures, and at that time I thought I was so heavy. Isn’t that crazy?”

    With her modeling days behind her, Sims has come to realize that there are things much more important than your dress size.

    “I think other things have become more important,” she said. “What I look like, it doesn’t have as much weight. And that sounds crazy, but now that I have a husband and a family and kids … I’m not consumed with trying to get into a size 2. Who gives a s–t if I’m a size 6?”

    Gisele: I flipped out when I learned Tom knocked up his ex

    Gisele Bundchen flipped out and wondered if she should “just run away” after learning that then-boyfriend Tom Brady had knocked up previous gal pal Bridget Moynahan.

    The supermodel opened up about her early days of Brady’s courtship and their experience with Deflategate — accusations that the New England Patriots quarterback cheating during a key playoff game last season.

    Bundchen said she was head over heels for Brady in 2007 but didn’t know what to do after she found out Moynahan was pregnant with the QB’s child.

    “It was a challenging thing because here I am, thinking I’m dating this guy, you know we met, we started dating and everything was great, and this happens,” she told “CBS This Morning” anchor Charlie Rose, in an interview that aired Tuesday.

    “I felt like I did not know what to do. It was one of those moments of like, do I just run away?”

    Bundchen, 35, said she’s glad she stuck it out and now has a good relationship with Moynahan and her young son Jack.

    “Now, eight years later, I couldn’t have asked for a sweeter bonus child,” Bundchen said.

    Brady, 38, is having another standout season for the defending world champion Pats who are 8-0.

    Over this past summer, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell suspended Brady for four games over his alleged role in deflating footballs before New England’s AFC title game against the Indianapolis Colts last season.

    “I think that’s when you know who are your friends and who loves you. My father always said the quality of your life depends on [the] quality of [your] relationships,” Bundchen said of the weeks leading up to Brady’s successful appeal of the four-game ban.

    “No matter how challenging it was, we [have] always been supportive of one another and I think that’s the most important you think you can have in life, you know, a support system and love.”

    Tyra Banks and Chrissy Teigen frustrated with sinking ‘FABLife’

    Things aren’t so fabulous behind the scenes of Tyra Banks and Chrissy Teigen’s “FABLife.”

    Insiders say supermodels Banks and Teigen have been “spending an inordinate amount of time commiserating about the misdirection of the show, both on and off set” and, “even the crew is taking notice .?.?. morale is low.”

    We hear Banks — whose “America’s Next Top Model” ran 12 years while another show, “Tyra,” won two Daytime Emmys — has been frustrated.

    “She’s smart and has pivoted her career numerous times,” a source said. “She wants the show to be innovative and different but it hasn’t been. It’s been super-frustrating for her and Chrissy. It’s not what she wants.”

    Busy Banks also has a makeup line, Tyra Beauty, while Teigen, who’s expecting a baby with John Legend, has been filming “Lip Sync Battle” on weekends and also has a pilot deal for an ABC program with “Black-ish” creator Kenya Barris.

    Coincidentally, Banks, who sources say has been meeting with her old guru Benny Medina, is filming a guest spot on Barris’ show this week.

    Sources have said “FABLife” might not make it to Season 2. But the show did see a 10 percent ratings bump the week of Oct. 19.

    The show’s rep said: “This utterly ridiculous story is .?.?. what happens when people traffic in unfounded gossip and rumor.”

    Model Katie Willcox: I Booked More Jobs at Size 14 than Size 6

    Katie Willcox started out as a plus-size model at the age of 17, and would soon realize that the industry was making her unhealthily obsessed with her weight.

    "I was always a bigger-framed person," she tells PEOPLE. "When I got scouted for modeling, they were like, 'Oh you'd be perfect for plus-size modeling.' That totally shattered my self-esteem. In high school, that's the last thing anyone wants to hear. It's like, I'm trying to like myself and you basically just called me fat."

    When Willcox, now 30, began working as a model, she was shocked at the eating habits of the straight-size models she encountered on sets.

    "When I saw models in real life, I was like, oh my God," she recalls. "I had no idea they had to be that small and that thin. When I would go on shoots, I would notice a lot of them don't eat lunch, or they have just lettuce, or very small amounts of food. And I was like, oh cookies? Awesome."

    Willcox actually began booking more jobs when she gained 25 lbs. as a freshman in college, bringing her weight up to 200 lbs.

    "When I went to my agency they were like, 'Oh you look great!,' because I was now a size 14, which is the sample size that works the most for plus-size modeling," she explains. "I started working well, but I still didn't like the way I felt. I felt really unhealthy and depressed. But I was getting rewarded for it."

    It wasn't until Willcox met her husband Bradford on the set of a photo shoot for Torrid that she decided to focus on getting healthy.

    "He helped me realize it doesn't matter what size I am for someone to think that I'm beautiful," she says. "Over time he helped me figure out how to be healthy, and that started to make me feel better on the inside."

    Willcox dropped down to a size 10/12 – a healthy size for her natural 5"9' frame – but this meant she was no longer considered big enough for plus-size modeling.

    "I was losing all my clients because everyone was saying, 'Oh, you're too small now, we want you fuller,' " she says. "I was shocked because I thought I looked great. I was like, why am I not valued when I look my best and I feel my best?"

    Determined to stay in the modeling industry, but not wanting to gain weight back, Willcox decided to drop to a size 6 to qualify for the "women's" category of modeling, which mainly constitutes catalog work.

    "I did a meal delivery service, and it was terrible!" she says. "It was the tiniest portions, and I was timing myself to see when I could have my next meal. At the time I was working out three hours a day. I got to a point where I could fit into size 6 pants, but the buttons wouldn't close across my hips."

    After nearly starving herself, Willcox hit a low point when she found herself desperately licking leftover frosting from a baking sheet.

    "I was like, what is going on?," she says. "I had this wakeup call that this is not who am I at all. I had a moment where I wanted to quit. Why am I giving so much to this industry that doesn't give me anything back?"

    The Los Angeles-based body-positive advocate decided that instead of quitting the industry, she wanted to change it, and came up with the idea for Healthy is the New Skinny, which is now a thriving social media movement and lifestyle brand.

    "I started to talk about my experiences on a blog, and the models were hitting me up left and right and saying, 'I saw this and I wanted you to know I struggle with this every day,' and were sharing their stories with me," says Willcox. "Every model feels this way, but you can't talk about it because you risk pissing off your bookers and then they won't book you."

    Willcox left Ford Models and founded her own modeling agency, Natural Model Management, in 2011 to welcome women with "real" bodies. It now represents over 30 models, including herself.

    In addition to changing the modeling industry, Willcox is determined to teach young girls to love their bodies, and regularly gives speeches about healthy eating and body confidence at schools across the country.

    "No matter what size any of us are, as women, we've always felt this pressure to be skinny," she says. "There's this perception that you're only healthy if you look like what the media's portrayed health to look like. It's inspiring to see that girls are starting to wake up to the fact that these feelings aren't natural to us, it's been taught. That's been my main goal, and to say, we can challenge that."

    Tyra Banks and Chrissy Teigen’s ‘FABLife’ a ratings disaster

    Tyra Banks and Chrissy Teigen’s new show, “FABLife,” has turned to the drab life for the supermodels thanks to sinking ratings since its debut, TV insiders tell Page Six.

    Banks’ other show, the long-running “America’s Next Top Model,” is ending its run Dec. 4 after 12 years on the air. And sources tell Page Six her Disney/ABC show “FABLife” won’t make it to a second season unless things get more fabulous quickly. By comparison, daytime shows from Bethenny Frankel and Anderson Cooper were put out of their misery due to low ratings though they had bigger average numbers than “FABLife.”

    “The new ratings are beyond catastrophic,” said one insider after “FABLife” debuted in September as the No. 1 new syndicated talk show with a 1.0 rating, but sank in subsequent weeks to a 0.7. It’s now being beaten by a much less glamorous daytime competitor, “Crime Watch Daily.”

    “The show’s a ratings disaster,” said another source, “specifically with [adults 25 to 54]. By comparison, Bethenny’s delivery of the [25 to 54 demographic] was 29 percent higher than ‘FABLife’ at the time of its cancellation” last year.

    “ABC’s already looking for a replacement [for ‘FABLife’],” said a third source, who added that new producers are being hired to inject fabulousness. “It’s not going to survive with a 0.7 [rating].”

    But sources close to the show counter that it’s doing well with women and has “the youngest demo among syndicated shows besides ‘The Real’ and ‘The Wendy Williams Show,’” and is performing well in markets like New York and Chicago. “They are very excited and optimistic about this show,” said one. In the most recent ratings, “Dr. Phil” came in as the top daytime talk show with a 3.0, followed by “LIVE! with Kelly and Michael” with a 2.6 and Ellen DeGeneres at 2.2.

    Teigen first revealed her pregnancy this month via Instagram to her 3.6 million followers, rather than on the show. But she thanked her co-stars and crew on Monday’s episode for keeping her pregnancy a secret while she had morning sickness. A few weeks before, she revealed to Banks on the show her struggles with fertility.

    Christie Brinkley Supports Kelly Rutherford Amid Custody Battle, Calls Out 'Broken' Family Court System

    After getting the attention of A-listers like Kim Kardashian West with her international custody battle, Kelly Rutherford has the support of another major celebrity: supermodel Christie Brinkley.

    Brinkley, who endured her own bitter fight for custody of her children with architect Peter Cook, posted a goofy photo of the stars posing by a pool Thursday.

    "I'm using this fun picture to catch your attention to a serious issue that every good parent needs to be aware of," wrote Brinkley, 61. "The problem with our broken family / divorce court system and how the person with the slickest lawyer can wreak havoc on our children, their lives, and their future."

    Brinkley went on to say that Rutherford's six-year legal drama "appears to be trademark actions by an extreme narcissist and his high paid lawyers. This is both a cautionary tale on International law and custody issues, and a call to action."

    Rutherford, 46, will fly to Monaco soon for an Oct. 26 hearing. She has been trying to bring son Hermes, 8, and daughter Helena, 6, back to the United States, where they were born, since 2012, when a California judge sent them to live with their father, German businessman Daniel Giersch, in Monaco and France temporarily – even though the exes have joint custody.

    Andy Roddick and Brooklyn Decker Name Son Hank

    Welcome to the family!

    Andy Roddick and Brooklyn Decker are new parents after welcoming their first child, son Hank, on Wednesday, Sept. 30, PEOPLE has confirmed.

    The couple confirmed the pregnancy exclusively to PEOPLE in May, and the Grace and Frankie star later took to Instagram to give a glimpse at her baby bump.

    “So this happened … #the3ofus,” Decker, who cradled her belly in the photo, wrote.

    From there, the mom-to-be kept her followers up to date on her growing bump, sharing several selfies and snapshots of her pregnancy progress on social media.

    Although the couple asked for baby name ideas, Roddick explained that they decided to keep the sex of their first child a secret.

    “The name is still debatable,” the Grand Slam singles champ told PEOPLE in May. “We’re open to any and all suggestions. We’re going to figure it out as we go.”

    ‘America’s Next Top Model’ To End After 22 Seasons

    One of the longest-running broadcast reality series, the CW’s America’s Next Top Model, is coming to an end, with the current 22nd season as its last as the network has opted not to pick up a 23rd cycle. The series finale will air Friday, December 4.

    America’s Next Top Model premiered May 20, 2003 on UPN, and was the first series to debut on The CW on Sept 20, 2006. The network is in discussions about a retrospective special to air in late 2016.

    “America’s Next Top Model was a successful franchise for two networks, first at UPN and then The CW, and it became not just a ratings hit, but a global pop culture phenomenon,” said Mark Pedowitz, President, The CW. “I want to thank Tyra and Ken for all their years of success in establishing a show that was not just popular in the U.S., but all across the world.”

    Top Model has been the most successful reality series on the CW and the longest-running series currently on the network. The show, produced by Tyra Banks and Ken Mok, has come down from its ratings heyday but still does decent business when delayed viewing is factored in. For premiere week, Top Model posted the biggest Live+7 percentage lift of any program, +100%, doubling its Live+same day number to rise to a 0.8 rating in adults 18-49. Additionally, Top Model launched a very successful format that has been produced in over 30 countries.

    In a lengthy Instagram post, Banks discussed the decision to end the show.

    “I truly believe it’s time,” she wrote. “Our diehard fans know we’ve expanded the definition of beauty, presented what Flawsome is, tooched and booched and boom boom boomed, shown the world how to show their neck, rocked couture/catalogue/commercial poses, have found our (and your) light, strutted countless runways, gone on tons of go-sees, added guys to the girls mix, and have traveled around the globe and back again. Yeah, it’s time. It really is.”

    Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are expecting a baby

    Chrissy Teigen is eating for two.

    The foodie and her husband, John Legend, announced via Instagram on Monday night that they’re expecting their first child together.

    “John and I are so happy to announce that we are pregnant,” Teigen, 29, captioned a photo of herself laying down as Legend touches her belly, “As many of you know, we’ve been trying to have a baby for a while now. It hasn’t been easy, but we kept trying because we can’t wait to bring our first child into the world and grow our family. We’re so excited that it’s finally happening. Thank you for all your love and well wishes.

    She added, “I look forward to all the belly touching!”

    Legend, 36, also posted the same photo, captioning it simply, “We’re pregnant!”

    The happy couple married in 2013 and have been trying to get pregnant for awhile.

    In September, she opened up about her infertility struggles on her talk show “FABLife.”

    “I will say honestly, John and I are having trouble,” she told Tyra Banks. “We would have kids five, six years ago if it’d happened. But my gosh, it’s been a process! We’ve seen fertility doctors. And then once you open up about all those things to other people, you start learning that a lot of people in your life are seeing these people, and they have this shame about it.

    She continued, “So anytime somebody asks me if I’m going to have kids, I’m like, ‘One day, you’re going to ask that to the wrong girl who’s really struggling, and it’s going to be really hurtful to them.’ And I hate that. So I hate it. Stop asking me!”

    Tyra Banks lists Beverly Hills villa for $7.75M

    Wanna live the fab life? Tyra Banks’ Beverly Hills villa is fierce H2T — and for $7.75 million, this terracotta-roofed Spanish Colonial might just be imbued with the same inspiration and attitude.

    The supermodel walked the runways for Chanel, Valentino and others before she found über-success as the producer and host of the long-running reality TV show “America’s Next Top Model.” These days, Banks has her hand in a number of projects, most notably her new talk show “FABLife” with Chrissy Teigen.

    The arched stone entryway — one of many features that remain from the home’s 1926 construction — leads to the gated courtyard, where hand-crafted tiles line the fountain and staircase.

    Banks added a luxurious sunroom, where she liked to spend summer evenings, according to the Wall Street Journal. You will, too! Who could pass up spending the twilight hours next to a cozy fireplace, surrounded by serene white walls?

    Banks also added a gym in the garage. If getting your body into booty-tooching shape isn’t your thing, you could take a peaceful dip in the pool. However you choose to spend your time here, this charming house is sure to elicit a smize.

    Coco Rocha didn’t wash her face for three years

    Coco Rocha has a dirty little secret.

    The Canadian-born beauty committed a cardinal sin of skin care by sleeping in full makeup every night for three years.

    “When I started modeling I did not take care of my skin very well,” the 27-year-old told Page Six at the Clarisonic x Keith Haring party in New York Wednesday. “I would do a photo shoot, wake up and in the morning do another shoot thinking they would just remove yesterday’s makeup. That was bad.”

    The new mother has cleaned up her act and now dedicates a full hour each day to her facial regimen, relying on a mix of drugstore brands like Clearasil and high-end products only available in France.

    “Now I’m OCD about it,” explained Rocha. “Finally I realized my mother was right and I’ve got to take care of my skin.”

    Giving birth to daughter Ioni, 6 months, allowed the “Face” coach to refocus her life and dispel the myth that all top models live a wild rock ’n’ roll lifestyle.

    “A lot of us [models] love being in our pajamas at home watching horrible TV just like any average woman,” she confessed. “Now I just want to hang out with my baby all day long. The poor other models when I bring out my phone — they’re like, ‘We don’t need to see her [Ioni] one more time.’”

    Model sues Bill Cosby over alleged 2008 sexual assault

    A model who has accused Bill Cosby of drugging her at the Playboy Mansion in 2008 sued the comedian on Tuesday for sexual assault.

    Chloe Goins' lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles seeks punitive damages for a variety of problems she says she has endured since the incident, including mental anguish, loss of self-esteem and dignity.

    "Bill Cosby touched an intimate part of Chloe Goins' body while she was seriously disabled and/or unconscious," the lawsuit states.

    The lawsuit is the third filed against Cosby since last year, when allegations of his sexual abuse began receiving new scrutiny. Three of his accusers are suing the comedian for defamation in Springfield, Massachusetts, because of statements released on his behalf that branded them as liars.

    Cosby is also being sued in Los Angeles by Judy Huth, who claims Cosby molested her at the Playboy Mansion around 1974 when she was 15. Huth and Cosby's lawyers are scheduled to be in a Santa Monica courtroom on Wednesday to argue a motion over Cosby's upcoming deposition in that case.

    Many of the accusations against Cosby are barred from being prosecuted or filed as civil lawsuits because of statutes of limitations.

    Cosby's attorney Marty Singer did not immediately return an email message seeking comment about Goins' lawsuit. He has previously denied the accusations and denied Cosby was in town on the date one of the model's lawyers has said the incident occurred.

    Goins' lawsuit does not specify a date when the incident occurred, but states it is being filed under a provision that allows victims of underage sexual abuse to sue for several years after they turn 18. Goins turned 18 in May 2008, which would place the incident several months before August 2008, the date her attorney Spencer Kuvin initially said the incident occurred on.

    The AP doesn't normally identify people who say they are victims of sexual abuse, but Goins has come forward publicly in the lawsuit and at a January news conference.

    The lawsuit includes a list of 40 women who have accused Cosby, 78, of some form of sexual misconduct, including several who have accused the comedian of drugging and assaulting them. Some of the women are identified only by pseudonyms they have given during news conferences with attorney Gloria Allred.

    Goins' lawsuit states she met Cosby at the Playboy Mansion, who gave her drink that made her sick and dizzy, the complaint states. Cosby then offered to take her to a room to lie down, where she blacked out, according to the lawsuit.

    When she awoke, the lawsuit states Goins was naked, her breasts were wet and sticky and Cosby was lower down on the bed biting one of her toes. The comedian left the room when Goins awoke and confronted him about what he was doing, the lawsuit states.

    "Ms. Goins at no time gave Bill Cosby consent to touch her body in any way, let alone in a sexual manner," the lawsuit states.

    The Los Angeles District Attorney's office said last week that it is reviewing a police investigation into Goins' allegations for a possible criminal case against Mr. Cosby. There is no timetable for when a decision will be made. Goins met with police detectives in January.

    Andy Roddick and Brooklyn Decker Welcome a Baby

    Andy Roddick and Brooklyn Decker are new parents after welcoming their first child on Wednesday, Sept. 30, PEOPLE has confirmed.

    Cindy Crawford: Daughter Kaia Didn't Think I Was Cool Until Kendall Jenner Mentioned Me

    You may be a world-renowed supermodel who hangs with George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin and has whole books devoted to your photoshoots, but your toughest critics — your kids — aren’t going to be impressed. That is, until a member of the Kardashian-Jenner family mentions you.

    While appearing on Live With Kelly & Michael to promote her book Becoming, Crawford, 49, fielded the question about whether her up-and-coming model daughter thinks she’s cool.

    “You’re just ‘Mom’ to your kids,” Crawford explained. “As she’s becoming more interested in fashion and models, she’ll be like, ‘Oh, Kendall Jenner talked about you, Mom. She looks up to you.’ She’s learning it through history.”

    And though daughter Kaia has landed an IMG modeling contract (and the accompany worry from her mom that comes with), Crawford isn’t ready to transplant her to N.Y.C. to pursue a globetrotting career like Crawford (or the current crop of supers, including Jenner and Gigi Hadid). “She’s only 14, so she’s still in school. She’s had a few little opportunities, and fortunately, I get to the be Momager,” Crawford says. “She knows I know what I’m talking about — at least in this one thing, she can’t dismiss me: ‘Oh Mom, you don’t know what you’re talking about.'”

    One other perk to having her daughter follow in her footsteps? Kaia is starting to appreciate those ubiquitous lookalike comments. “She used to be like, ‘We look nothing alike!’ But now she figured out maybe that’s not such a terrible thing. She sees it and is growing into it,” Crawford says.

    Jenner isn’t the only one who thinks Crawford is the coolest: Reformation’s “Cindy Crawford” sweatshirt has been seen on celebrities as varied as supermodel Karlie Kloss and Coco Rocha, actress Lena Dunham and — yep — even Kaia herself.

    Cindy Crawford: 'I Learned How to Be Famous' from Ex-Husband Richard Gere

    Cindy Crawford hasn't been one to talk about her ex-husband, actor Richard Gere, but the happily re-married mom of two is now opening up (a little) about their relationship, and explains why she hasn't said more.

    "It's not something I want to share," Crawford, 49, says in the latest issue of Porter on her decision not to include Gere in her autobiography Becoming. "If I felt that there was a great good that could come of it, I might have shared more, but I didn't think that there was anything for other people to learn or benefit from. And I wanted to be respectful."

    The supermodel divulged to the magazine an important lesson learned from her first husband, however.

    "Look, I learned a lot from Richard," she says. "I learned about how to be famous. Again, that's not a universal lesson. And a lot of the personal things, everything else I learned from that, were for me."

    The pair were together for four years before calling it quits in 1995. While there was a notable age difference, the couple, who wed in a quickie Las Vegas ceremony in 1991, had different priorities. While Crawford had her focus set on advancing her career, Gere, a Buddhist, was more devoted to spiritual practice. Crawford also said the marriage did not get enough attention.

    "We didn't spend enough time together," Crawford said in 1995. "And we're equally responsible for that. We thought it would be okay if we just flew in from Paris to L.A. to get together for a night to see each other. It wasn't."

    Crawford married Rande Gerber in 1998 and the pair had two children – Presley Gerber and rising model Kaia Gerber.

    Heidi Klum cajoles boyfriend to buy her plastic snail

    Heidi Klum gently, but persistently cajoled her boyfriend Vito Schnabel buy her a giant plastic snail at the 7th annual Milan amfAR auction, nudging up the price of the sculpture and helping raise a Milan record of $1.6 million for the charity.

    "Vito, I thought you were going to buy me the snail!" the model, who chaired the event, pleaded from stage Saturday night, as bidding heated up. A few bids later, the 29-year-old art dealer won the 3-meter (11-foot) snail by the Europe-based Cracking Art Group for 20,000 euro ($22,000). Klum, a mother of four, said she planned to put it in her garden.

    The amfAR charity raises money for AIDS research, with the goal of finding a cure for AIDS by 2020. The organization's chairman Kenneth Cole told the crowd that the money raised at the auction would be used to set up an amfAR institute for the cure.

    During a break in the auction, actress and model Dakota Johnson introduced Blondie singer Debbie Harry, calling her "my personal perception of cool."

    Harry, looking fabulous in a snug black sequin dress and sunglasses with her trademark splash of blonde hair, asked if any of the tailors in the room could help her guitarist, who had ripped his pants. He lifted his leg gamely to show the tear.

    As Harry, now 70, belted out "Heart of Glass" and "Call Me," some in the fashion crowd couldn't resist the beat and danced by their dinner tables.

    "I have always supported amfAR from the very beginning. I think it is very worthwhile, they've had some tremendous success and the support and the feeling for it is wonderful," Harry told The Associated Press as she arrived.

    Also during the auction, Goga Ashkenazi, who is reviving the historic Vionnet brand, paid 22,000 euros for a 1970 photograph of Debbie Harry, hair teased out and eyes upward against a red background, by rock photographer Mick Rock. The print was signed by both Rock and Harry. And Lapo Elkann, whose family controls Ferrari, apparently can't get enough of fast cars: He paid 75,000 euros to race a Ferrari and other high-performance cars in Las Vegas with actress Michelle Rodriquez.

    Roberto Cavalli's new creative director, Peter Dundas, arrived with singer Ciara on his arm wearing one of his creations that had just made its runway debut hours before. Ciara did a few takes down the red carpet so photographers could catch the billowing effect of the open-front chiffon skirt with a Baroque big cat print, tied over a mini-skirt and coupled with a suede tank top.

    She told the AP that she and Dundas have been long-time friends "so it is just really sweet to also be part of his journey so I feel awesome."

    Bar Refaeli Is Married! Supermodel Weds Adi Ezra in Israel—Get Details About Their Wedding!

    Sorry guys, this babe is officially off the market.

    Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli married her businessman fiancé Adi Ezra on Thursday, E! News has confirmed.

    The two tied the knot in a beautiful, traditional Jewish and rustic outdoor wedding ceremony in front of more than 300 family members and friends, including Israeli celebs, at the Carmel Forest Spa Resort near Haifa, Israel. Rabbi Yitzchak Dovid Grossman, a famous rabbi, married the couple.

    "The ceremony was so magical, filled with close friends and family and a few notable names and models," a source told E! News. "The locations was stunning. Bar couldn't be happier!"

    Refaeli, 30, wore a stunning Chloé bridal gown, E! News has learned.Famous Israeli singer, Shlomi Shabbat, who is also a judge on The Voice Israel, performed his song "The Beginning of the World" as the bride walked down the aisle to the chuppah to meet her groom, the Israeli websites Mako and Walla! reported.

    As Ezra stepped on a glass to seal the union, Bruno Mars' 2010 song "Marry Me" was played. Refaeli and later changed into another Chloé dress for the reception, which featured a giant, draped tent lit up by purple spotlights and adorned with icicle lights.

    While the ceremony and party seemed to go on seamlessly, there was some drama leading up to the nuptials, which were marked by heavy security. There was constant back and forth between officials on whether the skies above the affair would be open to air traffic, and the arguing continued up until the day before.

    The request to close the airspace above their wedding venue was originally granted by aviation authorities last week. However, Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz issued an ultimatum to the head of the authority—remove all limitations on flight, or lose your job. Yikes! In the end, only authorized aircraft were allowed to fly. A hot air balloon, a helicopter and several drones were spotted, while one of the latter, used illegally by a photographer, was grounded, Mako reported.

    Total estimated cost of Refaeli and Ezra's wedding? At least $330,000, according to the website.

    Refaeli took to her Instagram to share some of the festivities that took place prior to their big day, while also showing off her enviable bod. Wearing a thong bottom and long-sleeve tropical pattern top, Refaeli enjoyed some fun in the sun by the pool while wearing a white baseball cap that had a veil attached for what looked to be another bachelorette party.

    "This time tomorrow... I'll be dancing in white," she wrote on one photo. Another showed her diving head first with her head gear still on!

    Refaeli also celebrated her last days of being single last month, kicking off the party in the Maldives, relaxing at the waterfront tropical paradise and soaking up the sun. While no male strippers or raunchy party favors were spotted, Refaeli did share a fun photo on Instagram of the party in full swing.

    This marks Refaeli's second marriage. The supermodel was in her late teens when she wed Arik Weinstein in 2003 and they divorced after two years. Refaeli later dated Leonardo DiCaprio on and off for several years before they split in 2011.

    Back in March, E! News confirmed Refaeli and Ezra, the heir to Israeli food importing company Neto ME Holdings, Ltd., were engaged after about a year of dating. Additionally, an insider previously told E! News that the two met through mutual friends, and (added bonus!) Refaeli's family loves Ezra and appreciates how he understands her values. Bar has always wanted to raise her kids Jewish, and the two lovebirds are eager to start a family of their own.

    Cheers to the newlyweds!

    Cindy Crawford on Her Daughter Kaia's Career: 'Models Are Expected to Be So Tiny and I Worry About That for Her'

    Supermodel Cindy Crawford knows what it takes to be successful in the fashion industry. But she also knows things have changed since she got her start in the ’80s. And Crawford reveals that she’s worried about her 14-year-old daughter, Kaia, entering the competitive modeling world.

    “Today, models are expected to be so tiny and I worry about that for her, because that was never my natural body type and I don’t think it’ll be hers either,” Crawford tells the new issue of Net-a-Porter’s The Edit. “Still, I’ll say to her, ‘Enjoy carbs while you can!’ Kaia’s blossoming into such a beautiful young woman and I really want to let her shine. I don’t want her to feel in competition with me, although I’ll tease her, and say, ‘You have my old hair — give it back!’ Or, ‘Give me back my legs!’ But she’ll be fine… She’s much more together and worldly than I was at her age.”

    Crawford covers the latest issue of The Edit shot by Chad Pitman, wearing a plunging lace Balmain jumpsuit. She also stuns in a variety of high-fashion looks from Dion Lee, Emilio Pucci, Sonia Rykiel and more.

    In the candid interview, the star explains how being a model in 2015 is a way harder job, that requires more skills than when she was growing up in the industry.

    “They had better learn to sing and act, too, because it’s not really enough to just be a model anymore,” she shares. “Anna Wintour was the one who started the trend of putting celebrities on covers and in the big campaigns. Then everyone followed suit, so now they want stars like Kendall Jenner and Taylor Swift. They want people with a following, and social media has helped because models like Cara [Delevingne], Coco[Rocha] and Gigi [Hadid] can have their own voices and talk to fans directly. There are more pathways available to them than we had.”

    The mom of two turns 50 in February, and she says that as she gets older she feels more comfortable in her skin. And she’s proud of the brand she created.

    “I started to see myself the way the world saw me. And, fortunately, that brand lined up with the person I really am — it’s not like I’m secretly smashing up hotel rooms,” she quips.

    But she still isn’t immune to some of the cyber-bullying that goes on, like the emotional after-effects she felt after an altered image that showed her with cellulite on her stomach went viral.

    “Now, if I’m on a beach in a bikini where there might be paparazzi, I’d definitely put a coverup on,” she says. “There are good and bad angles and I don’t want to subject myself to that. It’s hurtful.”

    One imperfection she’ll never hide. The famous mole on her face.

    “If I ever had it removed, I wouldn’t feel like me anymore,” Crawford shares. “My fans worry about it a lot, you know — to the point where I’m wondering whether The Mole should have its own Twitter account and Instagram page, just like Harry Styles’ ponytail.”

    Model Jessica White changes her name to ‘Jypsy’

    Model Jessica White has mystifyingly changed her name to Jypsy White to boost her career as an actress.

    White, who’s been living in LA over the past year and appeared in a music video for John Legend, has been cast as a recurring character in Brandy Norwood’s new BET series, “Zoe Ever After,” scheduled to air next year.

    Sources said the cast and crew on set are calling her “Jypsy,” and the name will appear in the credits.

    The artist formerly known as Jessica is also working on an album.
