Tarantino a new dad

Quentin Tarantino and his wife Daniella Pick have welcomed their first child together.

Representatives for the filmmaker, 56, revealed the happy news to TMZ on Saturday, confirming: "Daniella and Quentin Tarantino are happy to announce the birth of their first child. A baby boy born Feb. 22."

The baby was born at Tel Aviv's Ichilov hospital, according to the Jerusalem Post. The couple has yet to reveal any further information.

Back in August, it was announced the director was to be a dad - less than a year after the couple married in November 2018.

The pair reportedly met when Quentin was promoting his 2009 film, Inglourious Basterds, in Israel. They got engaged in 2017.

Singer and actress Daniella, 36, secured a minor role in her husband's 2019 flick Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and previously appeared in the Israeli version of reality show Big Brother.





Diaz, Benji love parenthood

Cameron Diaz's husband Benji Madden gushed over his new family in a sweet post.

The actress and her Good Charlotte rocker husband announced they were new parents to daughter Raddix last month in an Instagram post and, taking to the platform again, the 40-year-old guitarist reflected on his new role as a dad.

"My Wife and Daughter fill me up with so much gratitude," Benji wrote on Instagram alongside a drawing of some roses. "Every day, I feel so lucky."

He added: "Just wanted to say it out loud!!! Much Love & Best Wishes."

The tot, who was born on Dec. 30, is named Raddix Chloe Wildflower Madden.

"She has instantly captured our hearts and completed our family. While we are overjoyed to share this news," wrote Diaz as she announced the happy news.

She also said the couple has a "strong instinct to protect our little one's privacy" and refused to share any further information or photographs online.

The fiercely private couple wed in 2015. Raddix is the stars' first child.



Shania takes to acting

Country music superstar Shania Twain has added an Oscar win to her bucket list after falling in love with her new acting career.

The Still The One hitmaker made her big screen debut opposite John Travolta in 2019 action film Trading Paint, and has now teamed up with Gary Sinise for upcoming movie, I Still Believe, in which she portrays the mother of Christian musician Jeremy Camp.

Working alongside the two Hollywood veterans proved to be valuable masterclasses for Shania, who credits the stars for helping to bring out her acting talent.

"They are both so experienced as actors, and they influenced me a lot. I learned a lot from them," she tells syndicated columnist Allison Kugel. "They were kind and very helpful and made me feel very much at ease, and I just loved being on the set.

"John Travolta made me feel very comfortable, and a film set is somewhere I feel I belong. It comes to me very naturally. I have no nerves about it or anything like that."

The singer-turned-actress admits she had never harbored onscreen dreams before tackling Trading Paint, and now she is hooked.

"I really would love to do more on film, so it sparked an interest I didn't realize I had," she explains. "It's a newfound joy in my life where I can be creative and step out of myself like no other element in my career."

And Shania is so determined to build up her acting resume, she is hoping it will one day lead to a big win at the Academy Awards.

She smiles, "It would be fun to get an Oscar... That would be a bucket list thing, of course! Why not? I would definitely add an Oscar to my bucket list."





Ozzy planning new album

Ozzy Osbourne is already planning on returning to the studio to record the follow-up to his new album Ordinary Man, despite his failing health.

The metal legend has been struggling with injury and illness since battling pneumonia and suffering a fall at his home last February, and last month revealed he had been living with Parkinson's disease.

Although his health struggles forced him to postpone his upcoming No More Tours 2 trek earlier this month, he has debuted his new record, Ordinary Man, a collaboration with producer Andrew Watt - who he plans to return to the studio with imminently.

"I'm starting another one next month," he told British music website NME, but also expressed his fear of touring, which he doesn't "like to think about" because he "can't even f***ing walk properly yet."

Ozzy has credited the new album with pulling him out of a downward spiral caused by his health woes - and thanked the producer, and rapper Post Malone, who got them together by asking him to appear on his track Take What You Want.

"I was feeling sorry for myself, miserable and in f***ing agony," Ozzy remembers. "I've never been laid up for a year in my life and still been in so much pain at the end of it, but Andrew Watt and f***ing Post Malone and my daughter Kelly got me going in the right direction.

"If it's not a big hit that's fine, but this album is quite possibly one of the most important albums I've ever made because it saved my life."

Ordinary Man debuted on Friday.



Family to block wedding

Amanda Bynes' family is planning to block her wedding to fiance, Paul Michael, as they need to approve the marriage under the terms of her conservatorship.

Bynes was first placed under a conservatorship back in 2013 when she was put on a 72-hour psychiatric hold due to erratic behaviour, with her mom Lynn's control over medical matters extended for two years back in 2018 - she has, however, had control of her finances since 2017.

The former child star, 33, recently announced her engagement to Paul, the son of a prominent Los Angeles doctor who she reportedly met at an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting, but sources tell TMZ.com the wedding will not go ahead any time soon as Lynn and other relatives do not approve.

Insiders tell the U.S. gossip website the family feels it's not in Amanda's best interest to be married, and they haven't met Paul - who they fear may be unemployed.

According to TMZ, the family are worried the relationship, which is just a few months old, came swiftly after another breakup - and so may be a rebound romance.

The publication also reports that the ring the Easy A star displayed on Instagram when showing off her engagement, was bought by Paul from Amazon for $49 - but that she's fine with not having a real diamond on her finger.



No 'royal' for Harry, Meghan

A spokeswoman for Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex has confirmed reports the couple will no longer use the word "Royal" in its branding.

News of the title ban began to circulate last week, suggesting the pair's Sussex Royal Instagram account and foundation of the same name would require new titles at Queen Elizabeth II's request after choosing to step down as senior members of the royal family.

On Friday, a representative for Harry and Meghan issued a statement about the change.

It read: "While The Duke and Duchess are focused on plans to establish a new non-profit organization, given the specific UK government rules surrounding use of the word 'Royal,' it has been therefore agreed that their non-profit organization, when it is announced this Spring, will not be named Sussex Royal Foundation.

"The Duke and Duchess of Sussex do not intend to use 'SussexRoyal' in any territory post spring 2020."

New names for the pair's social media accounts and foundation have yet to be announced, although they will reportedly still include "Sussex."

On Wednesday, it was revealed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will officially step down from their positions at the end of March, and start their new independent life on April 1.

Prior to retiring from royal duties, Harry and Meghan, who have been lying low on Vancouver Island in recent weeks, will return to the U.K. for six events, concluding with the Queen's Commonwealth Service in London on March 9.



Queen's sketches on auction

Two sketches believed to have been drawn by Queen Elizabeth II are expected to sell for thousands when they're auctioned next month.

While Buckingham Palace has refused to confirm whether the art is genuine, the pencil sketches appear to show the same middle-aged woman. One sketch is a profile of the subject while the second seems to be of the same person knitting.

The woman is believed to be Marion Crawford, tutor to the future British monarch and her sister Princess Margaret.

Drawn on royal-headed paper, the pieces were found inside a book called The Scottish National War Memorial, the inside page of which is signed "Elizabeth" in blue ink. The items have a hold of $3,875 at the auction.

A private collector sent them to auctioneers William George of Peter­­­borough, Cambs. The firm's Alex McCormick said, "It is most likely they were drawn by a member of the royal family close to Elizabeth, or perhaps even by the future Queen herself," reported Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper.

Although the date 1932 is stamped on the book, the Queen would only be six years old at the time, and experts suggest the drawings could date from later.

The sale ends on March 4.



Unscripted 'Friends' reunion special to launch with HBO Max

'Friends' cast to reunite

WarnerMedia's new streaming service will debut with some extra “Friends.”

The company announced Friday that the entire original “Friends” cast will reunite for an unscripted special that will be available on HBO Max when the service debuts in May.

A reunion has been long-sought by fans of the NBC series, which ended its 236-episode run in 2004. HBO Max will also carry every episode of the sitcom, which has proved enduringly popular, including with young audiences who discovered the show when it was available on Netflix.

The show made Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Matthew Perry, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc and David Schwimmer into household names and won six Emmy Awards.

“Guess you could call this the one where they all got back together — we are reuniting with David, Jennifer, Courteney, Matt, Lisa, and Matthew for an HBO Max special that will be programmed alongside the entire ‘Friends’ library,” said Kevin Reilly, HBO Max's chief content officer.

The stars posted identical Instragram posts of an old publicity photo of all them with the caption, “It's happening.” LeBlanc's post kept the same message but went farther back in TV history — he used a “M-A-S-H” cast photo instead.

The show's stars and its co-creator, Marta Kauffman, have long fielded questions about a possible reunion. Rumblings of an unscripted reunion special picked up after the WarnerMedia announced it would launch its HBO Max service into the crowded streaming landscape.

It was also announced Friday that cable channel TBS will air the show's entire run weekdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.



'No regrets' over Cats role

James Corden doesn't regret appearing in box office flop Cats.

Corden appeared alongside Judi Dench, Rebel Wilson, Jennifer Hudson, Taylor Swift and Jason Derulo in the big screen adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber's stage classic, which was panned by audiences and critics alike.

During a game of Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts, where players either have to answer a question or eat something disgusting, The Late Late Show host was in the hot seat as guest Justin Bieber asked him, "On a scale of 1 to 10, how much do you regret doing Cats."

The star had to either eat a bit of cod sperm or answer the question and, after a few seconds deliberating, he said: "Well here's the thing, I had the loveliest time making that film. It took me six days and I loved every single second of it. So I think you gotta decide things on your own personal experience, and I had a really great time.

"So, I don't regret doing it all, because I decided to do it in the same way I decided to do many things. Some have worked, some haven't," he added.

Corden previously mocked Tom Hooper's movie at the Oscars earlier this month, when he and Rebel donned furry cat costumes as they made their way onto the stage to present the award for Best Visual Effects.

"As cast members of the motion picture Cats, nobody more than us understands the importance of good visual effects," they quipped, referencing the criticism directed at the anthropomorphised felines in the movie.

The Visual Effects Society labeled the skit "immensely disappointing."



Harry, Bon Jovi team up

Prince Harry is set to join forces with Jon Bon Jovi to produce a special track for the British royal's Invictus Games Foundation.

The Duke of Sussex, 35, announced the news on Instagram on Thursday, revealing the rocker will record his tune Unbroken at London's famous Abbey Road Studios, along with the Invictus Games Choir, next week.

A post shared on the SussexRoyal Instagram account teased the collaboration with a shot of a fictional text message exchange between the pair.

The song will serve to promote the next The Invictus Games, a sporting event Harry launched in 2014 with the aim of helping wounded service personnel and veterans with their physical and psychological rehabilitation.

It will be held in The Netherlands from May 9-16, a month after Harry and his wife Meghan, Duchess of Sussex officially relinquish their royal duties on April 1.



Pam's ex engaged again

Hollywood producer Jon Peters is reportedly engaged again - just three weeks after his split from Pamela Anderson.

The 74-year-old broke up with actress fiancee Julia Bernheim - known professionally as Julia Faye West - to give a relationship with Pamela a real try.

But after ending his marriage to the Baywatch star with a text message, Jon is apparently back with Julia, and the pair are said to be engaged.

According to Us Weekly, the happy news was revealed as the NASDAQ Closing Bell was rung by Neptune Wellness CEO Michael Cammarata on Thursday.

Jon and Julia, who has appeared in TV shows such as The Girls of the Playboy Mansion and Evens Stevens, were both guests at the event.

Following his split from Pamela, Jon hit headlines when he revealed during an interview with the New York Post that he had paid off the actress' debts during their 12-day marriage.

"I dropped everything for Pam. She had almost $200,000 in bills and no way to pay it, so I paid it and this is the thanks I get," he was quoted as saying.

However, Jon has now insisted that he never spoke to the newspaper, telling the Ladysmith Chemainus Chronicle: "I haven't spoken to the press - nobody. I've loved this kid since she was 20 years old. I still love her. We're friends. We'll always be friends. I helped her in a way that she needed, but it's between her and I.

"I think she's great, and that's all I got to say."

Pamela also spoke to the outlet, which is circulated in her Canadian hometown of Ladysmith, and said: "I don't need anyone to pay my bills.

"I own a $10 million dollar house in Malibu Colony that has been rented for almost two years now and for the next three to five years for $40,000 a month. That more than covers all my bills and expenses."

She also confirmed that following their split, Jon wrote her a check for $100,000.



Luke Bryan launches beer

Country star Luke Bryan is cashing in on his love of a boozy beverage by launching his own brand of beer.

The Drink a Beer hitmaker has teamed up with tastemakers at alcohol firm Constellation Brands to unveil Two Lane American Golden Lager, an "easy-to-enjoy, sessionable beer" made with top quality, U.S.-grown ingredients, including water from the Blue Ridge Mountains, part of the Appalachian Mountains range.

"Between my songs, Instagram posts and onstage toasts to my audience, it's no secret that I like beer," the singer shares in a statement.

"For a long time, I've dreamed of creating a beer to enjoy no matter if you are hanging out at one of my shows or at home with friends and family, and I was so grateful to find a partner in Constellation to make that dream a reality."

In a new video promo for the beer, posted on Bryan's social media pages, he explains, "It's called Two Lane because it's perfect for the kind of places you'll find at the end of a two-lane (country) road - fishing holes, camp sites, dive bars - places where you and your friends can really feel at home."

He captioned the ad, "Excited to announce my latest collaboration. @TwoLaneBrewing #twolanelager".

Two Lane American Golden Lager is set to launch on March 2 in seven states across America's southeast, including Tennessee, North Carolina, Virginia, and his native Georgia.

Bryan is the latest star to enter the booze business - rockers Iron Maiden, the Grateful Dead, and Metallica also boast their own brews, while fellow country musicians Blake Shelton, Kenny Chesney, and Florida Georgia Line have their own liquor lines.
