Third Time’s A Charm For Vanessa Williams!

More Celebs Arriving at The The 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards in LA
 Vanessa Williams saved the best for last (I HAD TO!)

The actress is set to be hitched to her boyfriend Jim Skrip, and this time she thinks he’s the one (the three?). “Third time’s the charm,” Williams joked to Us Weekly‘s Loose Talk, saying the phrase is “her own personal hashtag.” Us Weekly reports on the info Vanessa was trying to keep under wraps at her Sept 2014 Queen Latifah talk show appearance:

“Vanessa, I have been trying to have a conversation ladies and gents, but I’m blinded by the light coming from that bling ring on your finger,” Latifah joked to Williams, who has partnered with Dress for Success and TracFone to help empower women in the workplace through their “Success Is Calling” program. “Is there something that we need to know around here?”

Williams explained that she met her future husband — a Buffalo, N.Y. native — during a vacation to Egypt nearly two years ago. “You go across the world to find somebody who’s six hours away,” mused the actress, who has four children with exes Ramon Hervey and Rick Fox.

Oh man, can you imagine going on some weird Egypt excursion and finding Vanessa Williams on your trip? And then MARRYING HER? Life is amazing and I LOVE IT.

Congrats, girl!

Of COURSE Blythe Danner Is Gonna Defend Gwyneth Paltrow

"Austin Powers In Goldmember" Premiere

What’s true in 2002 (like this photo) is certainly true now!

Gwyneth Paltrow gets a lot of flack for being ridiculous, but of COURSE mom and fellow actress Blythe Danner is gonna have her kid’s back. Duh.  During an interview on the Today show to promote her new movie, I’ll See You in My Dreams, Natalie Morales asked the mom about her kid, and the results were just as you’d expect…

“I know she’s the most extraordinary girl who can do everything,” Danner gushed of the Goop founder, a mom herself to daughter Apple, 10, and Moses, 9. “Incredible mother, she’s raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for my husband’s oral cancer foundation — things she doesn’t talk about a lot.”

Danner added that Paltrow is becoming a “great environmentalist,” telling Morales: “I’m so proud of her. I think she’s so accomplished that people get kind of intimidated by it.”

And of course, she promotes conscious uncoupling:

“I admire it very, very much,” Danner told Us Weekly of the two. “They’ve handled everything very well. They’re great parents. That comes first for them and they’re really handling everything beautifully.”

I know, so controversial having Blythe talk up Gwen. Still, it’s nice to see someone being NICE to Gwyn for a while. I know I really don’t…ever. But it’s so EASY to make fun of her! AUGH! #conflicted

Elizabeth Olsen Is Hooking Up With Her Avengers Costar!

"The Avengers: Age Of Ultron" - European Premiere

 Elizabeth Olsen has a new leading man in her life, in the form of her The Avengers star Tom Hiddleston!

“They have been hooking up,” an insider tells Us Weekly of the longtime friends, who become close while shooting upcoming movie musical I Saw the Light, in which they play husband and wife.

“It’s casual,” the insider says, adding that the two won’t be rushing into titles anytime soon, but they do make sure to “text when they’re apart.”

Olsen, 26, called off her engagement to Boyd Holbrook this past January, which means the time might be ripe for another new dude to be present in a more permanent sense? Or just fun…

“She wants to make a new life for herself,” the source says. “She’s having fun.”

This is the dude in question. What do you think- do they seem like a cute couple or WHAT?
