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.

Did you get about the Bobby Flay divorce for two seconds? Yeah, me too. But thankfully there are still more ridiculous claims being thrown about that will SPICE up your day!
Flay’s estranged wife Stephanie March claims she had a huuuuuge hand in making Flay’s restaurant and celebrity chef status successful, and continues to file legal docs to set aside their prenup, also claiming he left her pretty much nothing to live off of. So what is Stephanie claiming credit to? TMZ reports:
She claims Bobby told her she has “an amazing palate” and relied on her to taste test his recipes. She says she sampled a number of items at their home and gave thumbs up and down, which led to the finished product. She specifically cites Bobby’s NYC restaurant, Bar Americain.
We’re told in her argument to the judge she zeroes in on Bobby’s famed NYC restaurant, Bolo, (which, ironically, didn’t last). Stephanie says during a vacation to Spain she pushed him into including tapas on the menu — something she says he was against. But Stephanie says she prevailed, and the restaurant became an enormous success, earning 3 stars from the New York Times.
Stephanie says she was also heavily involved in the design and ambience of all of Bobby’s restaurants, right down to music and lighting.
Stephanie is trying to undo the prenup, which provides her with $5k a month because she complimented his “palate” and suggested tapas? Oy Veh.
Bobby remains firm on the prenup thing. What else u got, Stephanie?

George Clooney like got married to Amal Alamuddin like TWO SECONDS ago, but that doesn’t stop EVERYBODY from asking about kids…
In an interview with Charlie Rose for CBS This Morning, the Tomorrowland actor pretty much politely told everyone to back the eff up because kids aren’t a priority and can’t we just be happy I’m finally married? Us Weekly reports:
“I don’t really [think about it],” he told Rose. “I mean, I’ve thought about it, I suppose, but it hasn’t been high on my list.” He did note, however, that he’d been hearing the question more since marrying Alamuddin back in September.
“I’ve been asked [about kids] a lot lately because I’ve gotten married and I’m doing a movie with kids in it,” he said, joking that some people had gotten really “creative” about it.
“I’m really close with my family,” the Gravity star (who was previously wed to Talia Balsam) told Rose. “My sister, I’m very close to — I’ve got a niece and nephew. My nephew was just named prom king from the high school that I went to where I was not named [prom king].”
And it’s not like they aren’t SUPER BUSY. Alamuddin just does some silly little practice called BEING A HUMAN RIGHTS LAWYER and MOONLIGHTING AS A VISITING PROFESSOR AT COLUMBIA. And Clooney…well, you know what his day job is.
“The things that she does have great meaning,” Clooney shared on CBS This Morning. “There are consequences when what she does works and doesn’t work, and they’re much bigger than the kind of consequences I deal with.”

Agreed. Now everyone- let’s just bask in the hot, accomplished couple that is the Clooney/Alamuddin household, shall we?

A wedding and then a birthday- pretty rad month for the Somerhalder/Reed household!
Weeks after tying the knot, Ian Somerhalder celebrated Nikki Reed‘s birthday on Monday with an adorable instagram post that shows how much he loooooooves his new lady!
“Happy Birthday my love,” the Vampire Diaries hunk wrote, alongside photo of Reed making a wish on a bday cupcake. Reed turned 27 years old on May 17. “Me and the world celebrate you,” Somerhalder, 36, continued in the caption of his latest update. “And hope all of your dreams come true. I’m in awe of your compassion to create positive change in the world…”
More sentimentality just days after the two honeymooned in Costa Rica. In post, Somerhalder again gushed about Reed for making him so happy. “Thank you to this beautiful woman who makes every day a dream come true,” he captioned the vacation pic. “Pura Vida.”
