While tapping through your Instagram Stories, you may have wondered: Did Jennifer Aniston and Selena Gomez become best friends? Yup! The two share the same manager, Aleen Keshishian, who celebrated her 53rd birthday on Wednesday, Feb. 3. Aniston, 51, posted a photo of the three hanging out together on her feed, writing, "Happy birthday @aleenkeshishian [two red heart emojis] We love you." Gomez, 28, reposted her tribute, and Keshishian reposted the latter star's regram, writing, "Wish we could celebrate in person @jenniferaniston @selenagomez [red heart emoji] u both so much!" Several years ago, Aniston and Gomez met through Keshishian and then struck up a friendship. In December 2014, Gomez shared on Instagram a photo of herself with Aniston and promoted the latter star's film Cake. A month later, the two actresses were spotted hanging out together at a 2015 Golden Globes after-party. "She's just like a little cherub that I feel like I wanna take care of," the Friends alum and Morning Show star told E! News days later. "She's been extremely supportive and wonderful."
Renée Zellweger is making her broadcast television debut in The Thing About Pam, an NBC limited series based on the bizarre and twisted tale of Betsy Faria's 2011 murder. The award-winning actress has signed on to executive produce and star in the Blumhouse Television, NBC News Studios and Zellweger's Big Picture Co. project. She will take on the lead role of Pamela Hupp, a woman who is currently serving a life-sentence in a Missouri prison for the murder of Louis Gumpenberger, whose own demise is thought to be linked to Faria's unsolved killing. NBCUniversal Chairman of Entertainment Content Susan Rovner said in a statement, "When you think about what qualifies something as a ‘must watch,' I'm not sure you could do any better than the undeniable trifecta of Renée Zellweger, Blumhouse and Dateline." Not to mention, the real-life story of Hupp is truly unbelievable. To put things simply, and without spoiling the plot, The Thing About Pam will highlight the wrongful conviction of Faria's husband Russ Faria, and Hupp's alleged involvement in the events that revealed his innocence.
Reality stars and proud parents Ashley Petta and Anthony D'Amico just welcomed their second child. The couple, who fell in love on Lifetime's Married at First Sight in 2016, told E! News that Ashley gave birth to the pair's second baby, a girl, on Feb. 3. They named their little one Vaeda Marie. Ashley shared with us, "This pregnancy was not easy on me and the birth was even harder but meeting the new addition to our family made it all worth it! It was definitely love at first sight. We can't wait to get her home and introduce her to big sister." Ashley and Anthony, who also share daughter Mila, 2, are set to star in Married at First Sight: Couples' Cam, premiering Feb. 4 at 8/7c on Lifetime. In an interview with Us Weekly in 2020, Anthony gushed over how becoming parents has been the biggest joy. "Mila has changed our lives in so many amazing ways and we couldn't imagine life without her," he said. "I don't think either of us has ever loved someone so much." Ashley documented her pregnancy journey on social media. On Jan. 4, one month before her due date, she shared a photo of herself standing in Vaeda's soon-to-be nursery to Instagram, along with a message about self-confidence during this special time.
Will Rupert Grint be catching the Hogwarts Express once again? On Thursday, Feb. 4, the 32-year-old actor sounded off on the reported HBO Max Harry Potter series. As Grint relayed to Variety, he doesn't expect to be involved with the project—and he's not so keen to pass on the role of Ron Weasley—the character he played in all eight movies—to another star. "It'll be weird if it was a continuation kind of thing," the British-born star shared. "I weirdly feel quite protective of that character. Even when I saw the stage shows, it was a very strange experience…If it's like a different group of friends, I guess it would be interesting." This stance is slightly different than the one he shared back in December 2020. In a chat with Comicbook, Grint said "never say never" about reprising his role. "I would never say, 'Absolutely no,'" he explained. "It was a huge part of my life and I'm very fond of that character and their stories. So yeah, I mean, I'd be up for it at the right time. I don't know what capacity that would be, but yeah, we'll see."
Mickey Guyton is not blind to the racial inequality within the country music community. The singer-songwriter exclusively tells E! News she's well aware of how Black people are treated by fellow artists, record label executives and even listeners. But she feels it's her duty to pave a way for the Black girls and boys who aspire to be a country musician one day. "There's so many people: women, Black women, indigenous, Latinx, LGBTQIA+, that have a unique story that's important to be heard and when you're not giving people that platform, that is just flat out wrong in my personal opinion," she explains. "That's why representation matters, because there's a little 7 year old girl out there that looks like me that has these dreams and when she doesn't see herself, she doesn't get to pursue that and she doesn't get to live a life that could have been destined for her." But representing the Black community poses it challenges for Mickey too, who recalls the racism she's faced in recent years.
Fans are slowly getting hints about baby Khai. On Thursday, Feb. 4, Vogue dropped Gigi Hadid's beauty video tutorial on how the new mom manages her skin post-pregnancy. While the model surely dished out all of her skincare secrets, eagle-eyed fans of the 25-year-old caught a sneak peek of a tattoo tribute for her and Zayn Malik's newborn daughter Khai. During the 15-minute video, Gigi lifted her arm and viewers could clearly see the baby girl's name written in Arabic on her bicep. Fans were quick to notice that the ink matches Zayn's tattoo, which is in red and on his right wrist. Following her private pregnancy, the couple remained tight-lipped about their baby girl's name for four months after her birth. In late January, Gigi finally revealed the moniker. Gigi quietly updated her Instagram bio and added, "khai's mom" on Jan. 21. Back in September, both she and Zayn took to their social media accounts to welcome baby Khai to the world.
Sisters and friends. In an exclusive chat with E! News, Mike "The Miz" Mizanin gave an update on his family and revealed that daughters Monroe, who turns three in March, and Madison, 16 months, are "playing now." Per the WWE superstar, his daughters are playing the way "two little sisters should." "Before Madison was a little too young and Monroe would kind of try to play with her, but she was just too young to really do things with her," The Miz exclusively told E! news. "And now they're doing things!" And this wasn't the only milestone The Miz had to share about his kids with wife Maryse Mizanin. According to the wrestling star, his oldest Monroe is growing up before his very eyes. He continued, "So, she's speaking, she's running around everywhere and she's just getting bigger." Apparently, the little one's hair is something to behold. "Her hair is so beautiful and blonde and really long, we put it in a ponytail," The Miz gushed. "It's crazy. It's amazing how fast they grow."
"What the globe needs right now." This is the very message teased on the billboards for Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's upcoming hosting stint at the 2021 Golden Globes. We know this to be true as E! News has obtained the exclusive first look at the images. As you'll see below, the new posters feature Fey and Poehler dressed in all-black, which makes them pop against the gold and white background. And, may we say, their blowouts look beyond fabulous. Even though we're living in unprecedented times, we have a feeling the returning hosts will make the NBC-aired award show a memorable one. The Saturday Night Live alums successfully hosted the Golden Globes between 2013 and 2015. So, we were thrilled when former NBC Entertainment Chairman Paul Teledgy announced the hosting news while on the Television Critics Association Tour in Jan. 2020. "NBC has long been home to two of the funniest people on the planet—Tina Fey and Amy Poehler," he said at the time. "And we didn't want to wait any longer to share the great news that they'll be hosting the Globes once again."
Mariska Hargitay Welcomes Chris Meloni Back to "Law & Order" Elliot Stabler (Christopher Meloni) has a return date!

April 1 will also see the return of Manifest for its third season, which promises to finally answer the question of what happened to the passengers of Flight 828. Here's the scoop from NBC: "Over a year has passed since the miraculous homecoming of Flight 828 and the discovery of others who have mysteriously returned.

But sticking together is more important than ever, because no matter what happens, it's all connected."

Zaire Wade turned 19 on Thursday, Feb. 4. And while he received well-wishes from several family members, Kaavia James Union Wade's message truly stole the show. "19 huh???" a post shared to the 2-year-old tot's Instagram account read. "Seems like just yesterday we were running our 'Come see my cute baby sister and stay for dessert scam.' Happy Birthday bro bro @zaire." The tribute also featured a photo of Kaavia staring up at her big brother during a basketball game and another sweet snapshot of Zaire holding his baby sister. To be clear, Kaavia's parents Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade run the account. Still, Zaire seemed to appreciate the post nonetheless, writing "Love you" with laughing and heart emojis. Kaavia wasn't the only one to have a little fun with the birthday messages. Zaya Wade, 13, did, too. "Happy Birthday big bro!!" she wrote alongside a throwback photo, "(had to expose you a bit)." Even Dwyane couldn't resist leaving a playful comment, "Those [teeth]," the retired basketball star wrote beneath the pic. "Thank God for braces."
