Chrissy Teigen reacts to being the ONLY celebrity Joe Biden’s @POTUS Twitter account is following

Joe Biden is officially the United States’ commander-in-chief, which awards him full access to the now infamous @POTUS Twitter account. 

And Chrissy Teigen reacted in pure excitement when she realized that she is the ONLY celebrity that the 78-year-old president chose to follow on Wednesday.

‘OH MY GOD !!!!!!!!!!’ wrote the model, 35, who shared a screenshot of Biden’s ‘following’ list with her 13.5million followers.

As of now, Biden happens to be following just 11 accounts on the platform, with many of those accounts belonging to his personal White House aides.

Specifically he is following the likes of White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, Director of National Economic Council Brian Deese, and Domestic Policy Advisor Susan Rice.  

Chrissy, still in shock over Biden’s surprise follow, sent out a few follow-up tweets, including one that poked fun at former president Donald Trump.

Teigen was famously blocked by Trump, while he had control of the @POTUS Twitter account.

But with the account’s settings reset and Biden behind the wheel, Chrissy can ‘finally see the president’s tweets’ and ‘they probably won’t be unhinged’ like Trump’s often were.

Taking a moment to poke fun at herself, the wife of John Legend joked that she ‘should prob never tweet again,’ since Biden will get direct access to all of her crazy antics.

Chrissy, John, and their two children have been having ‘an incredibly special day’ in D.C., as they partake in the numerous Inauguration Day festivities.

Earlier in the day, Teigen expressed how thankful she was to have experienced the historical event ‘sober,’ in an emotional Twitter post. 

‘ran our a**es up the stairs for this shot,’ began Teigen, who included a snapshot of herself, husband John Legend, 42, and their two children posing on the Capitol stairs.

‘just incredible to be here. sober. I know that’s weird but it’s like…a different world for me. everything is new and better,’ she gushed, adding: ‘very happy. the most happy bigly happy.’

On December 25, Chrissy revealed via Instagram that she decided to go sober sometime in late November, noting that she was ‘four weeks sober’ at the time.

Teigen’s decision to ditch alcohol for good in late November came after the tragic pregnancy loss she experienced in September. 

Along with her sobriety, the Fast And The Furious noted that she has been ‘going through intense grief counseling,’ even sharing an emotional post-session video with her Instagram followers in December.

Incredible 'just incredible to be here. sober. I know that’s weird but it’s like...a different world for me. everything is new and better,' she wrote

In the brief clip, Chrissy stated that she has been ‘doing her best to work on herself and stay positive’ in recent weeks, which appears to have done wonders for her current outlook.

Teigen shared tons of photos and videos to her Instagram and Twitter on Wednesday as she took on the Capitol with her family, including a snapshot of her and John sharing a celebratory smooch.

Teigen looked ultra chic in a bright red coat with matching pumps, while carrying her essential items in a black velvet purse with gold hardware.

John had a scarf wrapped around his neck, while his body remained comfortably bundled up beneath a striking beige coat.

Another snapshot showed Chrissy and John holding hands before the Washington monument with daughter Luna, four, and son Miles resting comfortable on their shoulders.

John is slated to perform during the inaugural primetime special Celebrating America, which airs Wednesday night from 8:30-10pm EST on most networks.

Tom Hanks hosts the special in honor of Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris – and performers include Katy Perry, Demi Lovato, Justin Timberlake, Jon Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen, and Foo Fighters. 

Prior to gaining entrance to the inauguration, Chrissy was subject to her seventh COVID-19 test if the week, writing that her and her family could not ‘go anywhere til [they] got [their] results.’

‘Tested 7 of the last 7 days for various shoots and this event. Please lord fingers crossed you don’t have to hear my window news anymore,’ concluded Chrissy, who was referencing to the hilarious inauguration commentary she was giving from the comfort of her hotel room’s windowsill.

On Tuesday night, Chrissy received a bit of backlash on social media for attending the inauguration amid the coronavirus pandemic.

It occurred shortly after the star shared a snapshot of her and John’s two-year-old son Miles packing for their trip to the Capitol, writing: ‘My baby got his first fat lip pushing his car down the driveway. still happy packing for inauguration though!’ 

One irked Washington, D.C. resident wrote: ‘Hey Chrissy DC residents aren’t very ‘happy’ right now and can’t even ‘happy pack’ their cars to drive to the grocery store because of the military state the city is in but yeah LOL come on down especially in a pandemic. How happy!!!’

There is also heightened security in the city due to the recent riots at the Capitol, which have made the city nearly impossible to navigate for local residents.

The Twitter user also noted that due to the pandemic and social-distancing ‘no one will be there’ to see Legend perform, which prompted the question: ‘Why couldn’t he do a virtual performance and also why does his whole family have to go when literally no one can move about the city?’

The Cravings CEO, no stranger to clap backs, was clearly annoyed by the faux outrage towards her family.

‘for f**ks sake why are you guys always always mad at me, all I wanna do is make you happy or at least leave you with a neutral feeling of indifference,’ tweeted Teigen.

Chrissy also reminded those upset at D.C.’s current lockdown restrictions that it is not directly her fault, but that she feels their frustration during such a volatile time.

‘this is not my fault but I’m sorry you’re frustrated. I just like to share what we are up to and whatnot,’ wrote the wife of John Legend, who boasts 13.5million followers on the platform.

Not very happy: One irked Washington, D.C. resident wrote: 'Hey Chrissy DC residents aren’t very “happy” right now and can’t even “happy pack” their cars to drive to the grocery store because of the military state the city is in but yeah LOL come on down especially in a pandemic. How happy!!!'

Gigi Hadid, Sophie Turner & More Celebrity Moms Taking Their Babies For Strolls Outside – See Cute Pics

Gigi Hadid, Sophie Turner, and more doting star moms are often seen taking healthy walks with their precious bundles of joy in strollers. We’re taking a look back at some of our favorites right here.

It’s common knowledge that one of the best ways to get in exercise while also spending time with your baby is going for walks with a stroller, and many celeb moms do it! Gigi Hadid, Sophie Turner, and more doting mamas have been photographed going for relaxing strolls with their tots in various locations and it’s always an adorable sight to see! From outings in winter while bundled up to keep warm, to summer outings while taking in the sunlight, there’s never a bad time to go for a walk with a baby!

Gigi has been out and about with her Zayn Malik‘s baby girl since giving birth in the fall, and looking super chic while doing it. The Maybelline model rocked an $1,100 Louis Vuitton shearling hat as she pushed her baby stroller in New York City on Sunday, Jan. 10. She paired the hat with a camel jacket made out of a corduroy material, along with a similar pair of low-heeled boots. The mother-daughter duo were in the trendy Soho district as they passed by Aritzia’s Super World pop-up store.

New mom Gigi made headlines when she was spotted taking her baby daughter out for a stroll in New York City for the first time. The model was wearing a black newsboy-style hat, a long black coat and black boots during the outing as she pushed her newborn, whom she shares with Zayn Malik, in a black and white stroller. She also wore tan gloves, a black face mask and round-shaped sunglasses and looked as comfortable as could be in her new role as a mother.

Sophie, who welcomed her baby girl Willa with Joe Jonas in July 2020, has also appeared to be adapting to motherhood well. She’s been seen taking her daughter for strolls around Los Angeles on numerous occasions since her birth, including one on Nov. 13, 2020. The new parent donned a black pinstripe blazer over a dark gray top and black pants during the outing and her hubby Joe joined her in a white jacket with colorful designs over a white top and jeans.

Lea Michele is another new mom that loves going for walks and the arrival of her son Ever, whom she shares with husband Zandy Reich, hasn’t stopped her. The former Glee star was seen pushing an all-black stroller with her baby boy in it during a walk in the L.A. area in Oct. 2020 and looked incredible. She showed off her figure in a white tank top and black leggings and also wore a black face mask.

Famous Celebrity Co-Star Feuds: Lucy Lawless Vs. Kevin Sorbo & More Cast Mates Who Did Not Get Along

They through their personal feelings, but these co-stars were NOT fond of one another when the cameras were off! Take a look at some co-stars who didn’t get along

Not every working relationship is going to end in lifelong friendship — that was especially true for these co-stars! When it comes to casts getting along, not every single one can be a big happy family. In fact, there have been plenty of famous co-stars who just could not get along. Let’s breakdown some of the biggest co-star feuds thus far.

Lucy Lawless & Kevin Sorbo

Lucy Lawless and Kevin Sorbo in “Xena: Warrior Princess” [The Everett Collection].

Actors Lucy Lawless and Kevin Sorbo starred on the series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys in the mid-90s. Although Lucy appeared in only 11 episodes of the original show, she eventually got her own spin-off, Xena: Warrior Princess, which ran from 1995-2000. In total, the co-stars had to appear in 13 episodes together — eleven in Hercules and two in Xena. But even that was enough to push the pair apart.

The two haven’t exactly been friendly since, and on January 7, Lucy put Kevin in his place. The two took to Twitter following the horrific riots that took place on Capitol Hill on January 6. In his initial tweets, Kevin, who’s peddled misinformation and conspiracy theories on social media, made unfounded accusations that the Trump supporters who stormed the Capitol were “leftist agitators” in disguise, even saying “they don’t look like patriots to me.” Leave it to the woman who originated the role of Xena: Warrior Princess to put Kevin in his place.

“No, Peanut. They are not Patriots,” Lucy began her scathing retort. “They are your flying monkeys, homegrown terrorists, QAnon actors,” she continued. “They are the d—–bags that go out and do the evil bidding of people like you who like to wind them up like toys and let them do their worst.” She added the hashtags “keep your filthy hands clean” and “enabler” to her words.

The Cast Of ‘Grey’s Anatomy’

The cast of ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ [The Everett Collection].

Has the cast of Grey’s Anatomy every completely gotten along? Perhaps circumstances have smoothed over as the series, which debuted in 2005, has gone on to a 17-season run. But there were some major, notable feuds between these cast members, so much so that they deserve their own spot on this list!

Katherine Heigl memorably had issues with both cast and crew members. She dropped out of the 2008 Emmy race because she felt “the material” that was written for her that season didn’t “warrant” an Emmy nomination, even though she won for 2007 Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for her performance as Izzie Stevens! Katherine also had some tifs with former co-star Isaiah Washington, and he even reignited their feud on Twitter in 2020!

Then, there was Ellen Pompeo‘s riff with her co-star Patrick Dempsey. The actor seemingly wasn’t cooperative about working through negotiations so that Ellen could be given a raise. Ellen eventually, however, was able to secure her paycheck. But the longtime star of the show even highlighted how fraught working relationships were on set. “Hurt feelings, combined with instant success and huge paychecks started things spinning out of control,” she said in a 2013 interview. “The crazier things got, as I watched all the tumult with Isaiah [Washington] and then the Katie [Katherine Heigl] thing, I started to focus on the work. Maybe it is my Boston, blue-collar upbringing. I just tried to not pay attention to all the noise around me.”

Will Smith & Janet Hubert

The bad blood between Janet Hubert and Will Smith has been known for decades, ever since Janet was replaced as Aunt Viv on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. The two notoriously did not get along, and in 2020 everything finally came to a head. The feud started, though, in 1993, when Will appeared on an Atlanta radio show to offer this perspective on their feud:

“I can say straight up that Janet Hubert wanted the show to be The Aunt Viv of Bel Air Show because I know she is going to dog me in the press,” he said. “She has basically gone from a quarter of a million dollars a year to nothing. She’s mad now but she’s been mad all along. She said once, ‘I’ve been in the business for 10 years and this snotty-nosed punk comes along and gets a show.’ No matter what, to her I’m just the Antichrist.”

Janet, however, alleged that Will had practically “destroyed a 20-year-career with untruths.” Decades later, the two finally sat down for an HBO Max reunion special in November 2020, where Will apologized to Janet for his behavior and how he treated her during a difficult time in her life.

“When I left the show, I had this new baby and no one. Family disowned me, Hollywood disowned me, my family said you’ve ruined our name and I wasn’t unprofessional on the set. I just stopped talking to everybody because I didn’t know who to trust, I had been banished. They said it was you who banished me. Because you were Will, you were a kid. It was hard.”

Sarah Jessica Parker & Kim Cattrall

Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall in ‘Sex & The City 2’ [The Everett Collection].

Although they played BFFs on HBO’s beloved series Sex & The CityKim Cattrall and Sarah Jessica Parker have been anything but. It’s unclear exactly how their long-running feud began, but it definitely came to a head in 2018 when SJP extended her condolences to Kim following her brother’s death.

“I don’t need your love or support at this tragic time [Sarah Jessica Parker],” Kim wrote in an Instagram note. “My Mom asked me today, ‘When will that [Sarah Jessica Parker], that hypocrite, leave you alone?’ Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now. Let me make this VERY clear. (If I haven’t already) You are not my family. You are not my friend. So I’m writing to tell you one last time to stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your ‘nice girl’ persona.”

Yikes! SJP has continued to play down the clear rift between the two. Sadly for fans, it also means that plans for a third SATC film were scrapped a few years ago. Now, however, it seems that a revival might be coming to HBO Max! The only catch — Kim Cattrall is reportedly not involved.

Ashley Tisdale & Lucas Grabeel

You remember how the song goes — “It’s hard to believe that we couldn’t see, that these two feuded, apparently?!” It’s true! Ashley Tisdale and Lucas Grabeel, who played twins Sharpay and Ryan Evans in the High School Musical films, did not get along. Despite their fun chemistry on the big and small screen, Ashley spilled the details during a May 2017 get together.

“We were not close,” Ashley admitted. “We were not good friends—let’s be honest. It’s been 10 years, so we can talk about it.” she laughingly admitted. “We hated each other. Like, I’m not kidding.” Lucas couldn’t help but confess that it was true. “We didn’t get off on the best foot,” he said. Fortunately, it looks like as the two have matured their working relationship has blossomed into friendship!

Kim Kardashian ditches her $1.3m engagement ring as she ‘hires celebrity lawyer Laura Wasser’

A look at Kim and Kanye’s love story 

2004: First meeting  

Kim and Kanye first met on a music video shoot when the KUWTK star was working as Brandy’s assistant and Kanye was working on a song with the songstress. 

At the time she was still married to Damon Thomas, who she wed in 2000, and Kanye was dating model Alexis Phifer. 

Kanye was dating model Alexis Phifer

Speaking about their first meeting on the Keeping Up With The Kardashians 10 year anniversary special, Kim said: ‘I met him I think in 2002 or 2003. He was recording a song with Brandy, and I was her friend…

‘I vividly remember hanging out with him and then they did a video together, so I’d see him a few times…

‘He was asking his friends: ‘Who is this Kim Kardajan?’ He didn’t know what my name was’. 

Later on that year, Kim split from Damon, who she wed when she was just 19 after eloping. 

She attributed domestic violence for the split – a claim he has always staunchly denied . 

Kim wrote in the divorce papers: ‘Before we left out home, Damon hit me in the face and cut my lip open..

‘I fell into the bed frame and banged my knee hard. I was limping when we went skydiving.’

2006: Heads turned further 

Kanye’s huge crush on Kim only grew over the years as the rising star began getting photographed next to her boss-turned-friend Paris Hilton. 

In an interview with Ryan Seacrest in 2013, Kanye revealed that he truly fell for his future wife after he got a glimpse of a certain photo of her next to her pal Paris in Australia. 

He said: ‘I just knew I wanted her to be my girl for a long time. ‘I remember I saw a picture of her and Paris Hilton, and I remember telling my boy, ‘Have you seen that girl Kim Kardijon?” 

Despite his growing attraction to Kim, Kanye went on to propose to longtime girlfriend Alexis in August of 2006. 

The proposal was slightly more low-key than his eventual proposal to Kim many years later. 

Kanye popped the question to Alexis over a lobster and pasta dinner during a vacation to Capri. 

Tradgedy struck the following year however, when Kanye’s beloved mother Donda passed away.

Following a number of procedures for liposuction, a tummy tuck, and a breast reduction, the following day she experienced a sore throat, pain and tightening in her chest, before collapsing. A friend who was with her called 911 and West was taken to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead in the emergency room.

After her death, Kanye seemed keen to honour her wishes of his marriage as he said of tying the knot to Alexis: ‘I’m just going to go and get married — I’m not going to make a big deal out of it…

‘I wouldn’t get married to prove anything to anyone. It’s for me, for stability in my life, and I’m so happy that I found someone that I really love, that challenges me, that keeps my life interesting, that’s just as crazy as I am.’

2008: A split, Princess Leia and two new loves 

In April, Kanye calls off his year-and-a-half engagement to Phifer, as confirmed by Phifer in a statement to People, in which she said: ‘It’s always sad when things like this end, and we remain friends’. 

Shortly after, Kanye asked Kim to appear in his infamous hip-hop puppet show Alligator Boots, where she would be playing the part of Star Wars’ Princess Leia.

Although the show was rejected by Comedy Central, Kardashian still had fond feelings for the project as she shared behind the scenes pictures from the set of Alligator Boots to social media in 2018.

Kim wrote on her website: ‘We had met before this project (back in 2003), but I would say this is when we first really connected. These pics are SO funny!’ 

At the time of filming Alligator Boots, Kim was in a relationship with New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush, who she started dating in 2007. 

Meanwhile, Kanye became involved with model Amber Rose in September of that year. 

Future couple? In February, Kim and Kanye reunite with one another at the Y-3 show in New York City. Kim attended the show with boyfriend Reggie, while Kanye arrived solo and snagged a seat next to the couple and actress Milla Jovovich

2009: A fashionable meet and a mysterious mention 

In February, Kim and Kanye reunite with one another at the Y-3 show in New York City. Kim attended the show with boyfriend Reggie, while Kanye arrived solo and snagged a seat next to the couple and actress Milla Jovovich.

In April, during his appearance on Keri Hilson’s hit track Knock You Down, appears to reference his looming crush on Kim and his jealousy over her relationship with Reggie. 

He rapped: ‘You were always the cheerleader of my dreams / Seem to only date the head of football teams/…

‘And I was the class clown that always kept you laughing / We were never meant to be, baby we just happened’. 

Kanye and Amber also part ways in July of that year

2010: The end of two love stories 

In March, after three years of dating, Kim and Reggie split up for good. Reports at the time blamed the pressures of fame.

They had briefly split in August 2009 before reuniting, however he was unable to reconcile himself to Kim’s rising star. 

An insider told e! online: ‘They do truly love each other and there’s no bad blood… They’re even open to the idea of reconciling down the road, but need to be apart right now.’

Kanye and Amber also part ways in July of that year. 

Following their split, Amber blamed Kim for the split, saying: ‘Kim is one of the main reasons why me and Kanye are not together. She’s a homewrecker!’ 

In the years after his split from Amber, Kanye has openly criticised the model – most famously saying in a 2015 interview that he had to take ’30 showers’ after dating her and reportedly branding her a ‘prostitute’. 

In December, as Kim filmed the music video for her single Jam (Turn It Up), Kanye was present on set. Famously, Kardashian’s mother Kris Jenner snapped at him for checking out her daughter’s famous derriere by bluntly saying, ‘Don’t be looking at her a**’. 

The songwriter snapped back: ‘I’ve never seen it actually.’ 

In August 2011, Kim and Kris wed during a lavish, televised ceremony in Montecito, CA

2011: A Hump(hries) in the road  

In May 2011, Kim got engaged to her NBA star boyfriend Kris Humphries, who she started dating in October of 2010. 

In August that year, Kim and Kris wed during a lavish, televised ceremony in Montecito, CA. The eye-popping nuptials were attended by 450 guests and cost approximately $10million,

In an explosive twist in the tale, after just 72 days of marriage, Kim filed for divorce on October 31.  

Kim later revealed that she had misgivings about the marriage but felt she must go forward due to surrounding pressures. 

She said: ‘There was all this attention on the wedding, and I thought ‘maybe it was just the pressure of the show giving me this anxiety.’ 

‘The night before, my mom pulled me aside, off camera, and was like, ‘This isn’t it for you,”

‘I felt like, if I pulled out now, everyone’s going to think I just did it for the show. Then afterwards, people were saying, ‘You have to stay married for a year,’ but I physically couldn’t do it. When I made the decision [to divorce], everyone said it was made up for the show. Everyone really wanted to take me down.’ 

Kris said of the split: ”It’s never easy to go through the embarrassment of something like that — with your friends, with your family …. But when it plays out so publicly, in front of the world, it’s a whole other level. It was brutal’.

Kim discussed the services and detailed what they meant to Kanye, saying: ”Kanye started this, I think, just to heal himself. It was a really personal thing, and it was just friends and family…

‘He has had an amazing evolution of being born again and being saved by Christ…

‘For the most part, it’s just a musical ministry. Kanye doesn’t have his 501 [registered non-profit exempt from federal tax] yet to make it an official church, but it is for God and it is a Christian church. It started off healing for him and it’s become something that he really wants to share for everybody else.’ 

Kanye himself spoke about Sunday Service, telling David Letterman: ‘It was really an idea that we had to open up our hearts and make music that we felt was as pure and as positive as possible… 

‘And just do it for an hour every Sunday. And just have somewhere where people can come together and just feel good with their families.’

Virtual: Kim Kardashian revealed on Thursday that she received a hologram of her late father Robert from husband Kanye West , in celebration of her 40th birthday 

‘For my birthday this year, I couldn’t think of a better way to spend it than with some of the people who have helped shaped me into the woman I am today. Before COVID, I don’t think any of us truly appreciated what a simple luxury it was to be able to travel and be together with family and friends in a safe environment…

‘After 2 weeks of multiple health screens and asking everyone to quarantine, I surprised my closest inner circle with a trip to a private island where we could pretend things were normal just for a brief moment in time. We danced, rode bikes, swam near whales, kayaked, watched a movie on the beach and so much more.

‘I realize that for most people, this is something that is so far out of reach right now, so in moments like these, I am humbly reminded of how privileged my life is. #thisis40.’

During the trip, she received a hologram of her late father Robert from husband Kanye. 

Famed attorney Robert Kardashian, who tragically passed away from esophageal cancer in July of 2003 at the age of 59, was brought back to virtual life for the unconventional gift, which a number of fans have branded ‘creepy’.

Among the statements made by the virtual incarnation of the late Kardashian patriarch were that his famous daughter was ‘all grown up’, while he also hailed Kanye, 43, as ‘the most genius man in the whole world’.

The two-and-a-half minute video showed the late Kardashian wearing a beige suit jacket layered over a crisp white dress shirt as he seemingly spoke directly to Kim.

‘Happy Birthday Kimberly,’ greeted the hologram. ‘Look at you! You’re 40 and all grown up. You look beautiful just like when you were a little girl. ‘I watch over you and your sisters and brother and the kids everyday. Sometimes I drop hints that I’m around,’ noted hologram Robert, who made reference to something the Kardashians refer to as a ‘big peefee’.

2021: The end? 

The couple have been rocked by claims that their six-year marriage is over, with sources saying ‘divorce is imminent’ for the power couple.

Several sources have claimed that Kim is preparing to file for divorce from her rapper husband while he is said to be fed up with the whole Kardashian clan.  

The rumors of a split follow a rocky year for the couple where they were spotted having ‘crisis’ talks after Kanye accused Kim of trying to ‘lock me up’ and said he wanted to divorce her in a series of rambling Twitter posts while he was said to be in the grips of a bipolar episode. 

Kanye also made a failed run for the White House in 2020 and during his first presidential campaign rally told attendees that Kim had considered aborting daughter North.

Dark world of PRs and their celebrity clients – death, sex and chilling secrets

Tanya Roberts’ death – and the shocking reveal that the news had been wrongly reported – made headlines around the world.

The former model and actress, who found fame as both a Bond Girl and a Charlie’s Angel, was first reported to have died on Sunday evening.

Within 24 hours Tanya’s alleged death had been reported by countless news outlets and sparking an outpouring of obituaries and tributes – with her partner Lance O’Brien also recording an emotional interview with Inside Edition.

It was during the filmed chat that Lance discovered Tanya was in fact not dead, but still fighting for her life in ICU.

Tanya starred alongside Sir Roger Moore in A View to Kill

Lance O’Brien sobbed as he discovered Tanya was still alive after he and her rep both said she had died

Lance had left the hospital earlier on Sunday believing that he had shared his love’s final moments after watching her ‘fade away’.

He immediately told Tanya’s agent Mike Pingle, who then shared the news with the world’s media.

Tanya’s tragic death then had to be reported for a second time on Tuesday.

Following the bizarre turn of events, agent to the stars Rob Cooper has shared an inside take at how publicists handle breaking news for their clients from deaths, births and weddings and the super secretive relationship that goes on between celebrities and their reps that fans don’t get to see.

PR powerhouse Rob Cooper has given his expert take on the scandal

Rob explains: “A good agent should have a really intense relationship with their client, as their representative your job isn’t just to publicise the celebrity and negotiate deals, a large part of your job is to know their darkest secrets and do everything possible to ensure personal details don’t make their way into the public domain, because of this many publicists become the closest person in a celebrity’s life.

“When a client is in demand, you often end up travelling around the world with them, staying in the same hotels, having meals together and sharing many highs and lows. The job can be literally 24 hours at times, with little time for sleep.However, during quieter periods you are still likely to have multiple calls throughout the week to check in with the client.

“From an outsiders perspective, I really sympathise with Tanya’s publicist after wrongly announcing the death of his client. The repercussions from making this false claim will damage his relationship with the media outlets as many titles will receive a backlash from readers, a backlash that isn’t deserved as they received the confirmation needed that Tanya had died.

Tanya with her agent Mike Pingel

“When announcing something as sensitive as a death, a publicist should not only confirm the news with a spouse or family member, but you should also ensure that anyone extremely close to the celebrity is made aware of the death before the news has broken.

“Once you are confident that anyone with a close relationship to the celebrity has been informed, you need to make sure that measures are put into place where their privacy is respected.

“The hardest thing for any agent is temporarily losing contact with their client. If a story is breaking and you can’t speak to them directly for whatever reason, you often have to rely on information from their spouse or family. If this information is wrong then it can cause all kinds of trouble.”

Tanya Roberts has died at the age of 65

Following the incorrect announcement about Tanya’s death this week, Lance has attempted to explain how he wrongly interpreted her ‘final moments.’

“I turn around and she’s completely passed out cold,’ he told The Sun. “I thought that was that, she wasn’t going to recover.

“So when I came down the elevator I was distraught, I was lost, I was completely discombobulated. There was nobody there to guide me. I called her publicist Mike Pingel and I said I just said goodbye to Tanya.”

On Monday Pingel said that the hospital called Lance to tell him that Tanya was still alive, with his emotional reaction seen in the Inside Edition video interview.

The agent described Tanya’s condition as ‘dire.’

Lance told The Sun: “Her kidneys are so far gone, her liver is so far gone, her gall bladder is so far gone. She also has a terrible blood infection. The doctors say it started out with a urinary tract infection.

“The doctors say there’s no way she’s going to be the same. She always told me she didn’t want to be an invalid. She said if it got to this stage, end it for me.”

19 Friendliest Celebrity Exes: Olivia Wilde, Jason Sudeikis & More Former Couples Who Stayed Amicable

Not all celebrity breakups have to be super messy! In fact, some stars – like Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis — have stayed super friendly with their famous exes, even after ending the relationship.

Some Hollywood romances end with shouting matches, legal filings, and bad blood so bitter that the former lovers never speak to each other again. On the other hand, some celebrity exes act like the breakup was no big deal and have remained friends ever since. From Anna Farris becoming Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger’s biggest supporter, to Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon’s co-parenting to Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin’s successful “consciously uncoupling,” there are so many examples of celebs being friendly after the love is gone. Take Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis, for example.

Olivia and Jason ended their seven-year engagement at the start of 2020, and the split was so amicable, news about the breakup didn’t get around until the end of that year. The couple – who share two kids (son Otis Alexander and daughter Daisy Josephine) – have made parenting a priority, and it seems they’re on great terms. Less than a week after news of their split broke, the former couple reunited and shared an intense, warm hug. Days after Olivia was spotted holding hands with Harry Styles, she paid Jason a visit, and things still seemed copacetic between them.

When talking about amicable exes, one must not overlook Jennifer Aniston. At the start of 2020, there was one of the biggest and most-buzzed-about celebrity reunions of all time: Jenifer and Brad Pitt. The stars, who were married from 2000 until 2005, both attended the SAG Awards that January and shared a sweet moment backstage after they both won awards. It was the first time fans have seen them physically together since their split, proving that they’re totally cool with each other all these years later. Brad also attended Jen’s 50th birthday party in 2019.

Jennifer has also kept up an amicable relationship with her other ex-husband, Justin Theroux. They ended their relationship in Feb. 2018, but it was not a bitter breakup. Just weeks before news of the split went public, the two had vacationed together, and they attended the same holiday party in 2019. Plus, Justin has shown love for Jen on social media since the breakup, too! Another pair of friendly celeb exes are Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck, who share three kids. Since their split in 2015, they’ve been seen spending time together on many occasions, and Jen helped Ben get sober in 2018.

For Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick, getting to a good place after breaking up did not come easy. The two were not on good terms for the first few years after their split but have gotten to a much better place. They even take vacations together with their three kids now!

Other celeb exes who’ve stayed friends include Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony, Gigi Hadid and Cody Simpson, and more. Click through the gallery above to check out photos of the friendliest celebrity exes!

2020 is finally coming to a close! Before the year wraps up with small celebrations and new resolutions, check out the celebrities who went on healthy weight loss journeys in 2020!

While some people may have let themselves go during 2020, others took the opportunity to focus on fitness and getting healthy! This has allowed for some incredible celebrity weight loss stories from what has been a fairly dismal year, with several big-name stars shedding major pounds over the course of the last 12 months. As 2020 comes to a close and millions set their new year’s resolutions for a healthier, happier life, check out some of the celebs who completely transformed their lives in 2020!

While some stars, like Rebel Wilson, have been super open about their weight loss journeys, others have kept quiet about what they’ve been doing to lose weight, and are letting the photos do the talking! Rebel often posts updates on Instagram of her fitness journey. She’s often sharing her workouts on her page, and isn’t shy about showing off her slimmed-down figure in social media photos.

From glamorous gowns to workout attire, Rebel has put her new bod on display in a number of different looks. The Australian actress has lost roughly 60 lbs., but previously admitted that she has a bit of work to still do to get down to her goal weight of 165 pounds. Now, the Aussie star is fully embracing her look and flaunting her loving relationship with partner Jacob Busch, too!

Rob Kardashian has gone through many ups and downs with his weight over the years. The only KarJenner boy has been known to take major breaks from the spotlight when he’s not feeling confident. This year, he’s been focused on himself, though, and the hard work is paying off! Rob made a triumphant return to the public eye after his sister, Khloe Kardashian’s, birthday in June. Although he still hasn’t been caught by paparazzi, he’s been sharing plenty of photos of himself on social media, and his slimmer figure has been on full display.

Like Rob, Adele has also avoided paparazzi throughout most of 2020, but every once in a while, she’ll post a photo on Instagram that gets fans buzzing about her slimmed-down look! For her birthday in May, Adele wowed everyone with a picture of herself in a little black dress. She looked completely different after losing 100 pounds. Considering Adele is SO private and barely posts on Instagram, her fans go crazy over any glimpse they can get of her. Needless to say, she basically breaks the Internet every time she shares a photo of herself!

Meanwhile, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s son, Chris Schwarzenegger, also debuted a noticeable weight loss this year. “He made it his goal to get healthy for graduation and he stuck to it,” a source told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. “He started working out and making better food choices. He’s been away at school, living like a typical college kid, the past few years, but he’s growing up now and ready to take better care of himself.”

There are plenty of other amazing weight loss stories from this year, though! Scroll through the gallery above to see Kelly Osbourne and more stars who debuted new looks in 2020.
