Chrissy Teigen and John Legend’s daughter, Luna, is growing up so fast! In 2017 alone, the adorable 1-year-old went on her first tour, traveled to a handful of different countries, and even said the word «cat» for the first time ever. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Little Luna has had so many firsts this year that even Chrissy pointed it out on Instagram back in March, writing, «Ah!!! So many firsts,» alongside a snap of Luna in Morocco. Keep reading for a look at all the exciting milestones Luna has hit this year.
Milo Ventimiglia has had some iconic roles over the years: Jess Mariano on Gilmore Girls, Peter Petrelli on Heroes, and now Jack Pearson on This Is Us. One of his most underrated appearances, though, definitely has to be when he played Fergie‘s love interest in her «Big Girls Don’t Cry» music video. In 2006, Ventimiglia took a walk on the wild side when he played the singer’s tattooed, often shirtless boyfriend.
While Fergie definitely isn’t afraid to show off her sexy side, she admitted she was «totally nervous» about making out with the actor. Honestly, do you blame her? «I just had to tell him, like, ‘Please help me with this,'» she told Entertainment Tonight about filming the steamy scenes for the video. «He was so great.» We can only imagine. Relive his gorgeous cameo above.
Turns out some of the shocking twists on This Is Us actually happen off screen. In a digital exclusive for the first season, the cast members reveal some interesting facts about the three generations of the Big Three. Not only were Justin Hartley and Parker Bates (who plays 9-year-old Kevin) wearing the exact same thing when they first met, but it turns out that Chrissy Metz and Hannah Zeile (who plays 15-year-old Kate) had a cool connection as well. Plus, Niles Fitch (who plays 15-year-old Randall) reveals the interesting reason he decided to avoid Sterling K. Brown, or «Mr. Sterling,» as he adorably calls him, during filming. See the heartwarming video segment above.
Hope you’re having a good weekend. Jim Carrey’s probably not. Ace Ventura, Pet Detective should have maybe been called Ace Ventura, Incredibly Bad Influence according to a letter allegedly written by the actor’s ex-girlfriend Cathriona “Cat” White. Carrey is currently being sued for wrongful death by Cat’s estranged husband Mark Burton and her mother Brigid Sweetman. She committed suicide by overdosing on drugs in September of 2015, and they’ve accused him of using a false name to provide her with said drugs. Cat had been Carrey’s on-again-off-again ex since 2012.
People reports that Burton and Sweetman’s legal team is claiming that, “during a forensic examination of Ms. White’s iPad,” they unearthed a letter she had written to Carrey in April of 2013. In it, she accuses him of introducing her to “cocaine, prostitutes, mental abuse and disease.” No wonder why Jenny McCarthy ran screaming to a New Kid on the Block.
In the letter, she accuses him of giving her STDs and basically says she wants an apology for that as well as wanting him to know that he “broke me down as a person.” She also explained how much her life changed after Jim allegedly got her involved with the seamy side of Hollywood. via attorney Michael Avenatti and People:
Cat’s husband and mom are claiming that Jim used the name “Arthur King” to procure the drugs for his ex.
Jim filed a counter-suit against Cat’s lawyer Filippo Marchino (and his firm), Burton, Sweetman, and their legal teams claiming that the lawsuit is just the latest in a series of extortion attempts by them. Sweetman’s attorney Michael Avenatti says that he can’t wait to go to trial.
Avenatti claimed in a statement that the “note, written in Cat’s own words, shows the world how Jim Carrey treated her while she was alive and the depths of his destructive behavior. We look forward to trying our case to a Los Angeles jury.”
Michael Avenatti also claims that Jim is “incoherent and unhinged” and “needs help.” Well, I did read the reviews for Dumb and Dumber To so yeah, maybe.
Jim and his legal eagle have both released statements that claim Cat and her attorney made all her accusations up and now her family is doing the same. They also say that this suit is just the second extortion attempt that’s been made on him. Jim claims the first one was successful.
In a statement, Carrey said, “Unfortunately, I made the mistake three years ago of giving in and settling false claims made against me by Mr. Marchino, on behalf of Cat, as mounting a public defense is a very costly and painful process.
So, this whole situation is a sad mess. And it’s a long, long way from Fire Marshall Bill.
I know, Simon. Katy Perry has spoiled a lot of things for me, too (short hair, award show monologues , Orlando Bloom). Unrepentant bitch in a v-neck sweater Simon Cowell made himself a household name by being the cruel one on the original American Idol. ABC is bringing the show back despite it only having gone off the air last year. And Simon’s got opinions. (It took 35 years to get a sequel to Blade Runner, you desperate-for-advertising dollars hoes!)
This iteration’s judges will be country music’s Luke Bryan, Scott Disick’s potential future father-in-law Lionel Richie, and Katy Perry. Simon, who sticks with what he knows and is currently a judge on America’s Got Talent, didn’t edit himself when he spoke to Extra about the new judges.
Simon told his ex-girlfriend Extra’s Terri Seymour that no one can replace the original fab four of him, high-ass Paula Abdul, Randy “Yo Dawg” Randy Jackson, and frosted-tipped utilahost Ryan Seacrest. (Ryan, by the way, is hosting again.) Simon says that “maybe they should do it without judges” and make it all about the contestants. But how do you choose the winner, then? Would it be to the death?
When I hear all this talk about casting judges, I have to be honest with you, I think this is where they have it wrong it doesn’t matter about the judges, it is about the contestants and that is why everything has gone the wrong way right now.
Simon wouldn’t come back if you paid him the $ 25 million they’re giving Katy (and already regretting).
He pointed out that he would not return to the show that he helped make famous even if they begged, saying, “You can’t go back! We had the best of times when we did it.”
And Simon doesn’t think it’s possible to recapture the old magic.
“You can’t recreate what we had before, you know, it was me and it was Paula and Randy and Ryan and it was an amazing chemistry there.
I don’t know about chemistry. I know there were chemicals. And those were mostly in Paula’s coffee mug and Seacrest’s hair. And then Simon got bored talking about other people, and the man-witch we all know and love came out.
When Terri asked if he thought Luke was a good fit, Simon quipped, “I genuinely don’t care. Look, in my time, I will tell you the real story on what really happened there and it is an interesting story.”
If that means there’s going to be an American Idol tell-all, it damn well better have Paula Abdul penning more than a few chapters about what a gift she was to that show.
Michigan has a bye week this weekend, so naturally, instead of sitting at home watching game film and studying up for next Saturday, Jim Harbaugh is at the Michigan aquatic center judging cannonballs for the Michigan Water Carnival.
But you know Jim wasn’t going to be able to sit there and just watch while all these people did cool tricks off the high dive. Seeing as he’s still a 12-year-old trapped in a 53-year-old man’s body, he had to make his way up in full khakis to bust out his best can opener.
I give it a 6/10. Room for improvement.
Obviously, this isn’t the first time he’s gone into a pool in his khakis

The arid wasteland that is desperate housewife Tori Spelling’s checking account looks to have received a blessed shower of money. Tori has reportedly settled her lawsuit against grilled deliciousness chain Benihana out of court. Every employee of the L.A. branch of the IRS turned their heads in Tori’s direction in perfect velociraptor synchronicity after reading TMZ’s report that she’s most likely getting a check for something. At least one that wasn’t signed “Candy Spelling, Disappointed Mom” They shouldn’t get too excited. Most of that money is going to keep that mini-mall plastic surgeon she uses on retainer and the rest is earmarked for diapers for the many children that they probably can’t afford.
The pride of West Beverly High took a tippy (tipsy?) tumble onto a grill at the restaurant’s Encino, CA location in April 2015. She reportedly received second and third-degree burns which required skin grafts. Tori filed a lawsuit for damages that September, noting that her injury cost her “wages.” What does the W2 form look like when your job is obliquely referring to how traumatized you were when your shifty goon of a husband might have convinced you to try anal on national television? I’m referring to on national television, not the anal. But at this point for Tori, a check is a check is a check so who knows what the future holds?
TMZ says that newly filed docs claim that Tori and Benihana recently settled up, and it’s looking like they paid her. It’s not known how much they settled for.
As Michael K. pointed out back then, you’d really have to work to get yourself up on one of Benihana’s table grills. And by “work,” he meant “down enough of their sake sangrias.” Tori claims she “tripped” and fell backward. Dean is a total asshole for not volunteering to be the one to burn himself so they could file a lawsuit. It’s not chauvinism if you take some pain so your wife doesn’t have to, Deaner.
That clip is from Butch Jones’ Monday press conference where he decided he would take his time to go after the media for their negativity after they asked about a fight between two players the previous week. Meanwhile, he’s been the worst coach in America through 4 weeks and has the entire Tennessee fan base ready to can his ass.
So while Butch was blaming everybody but himself for everything, it caught the attention of Rece Davis, who by all means is one of the nicest, most professional guys in the college football media.
Rece saw this abomination of a press conference and decided to take a few minutes on GameDay this morning to put Butch in a body bag.
I think we may be looking Butch Jones’ last Saturday as Tennesee’s head ball coach. At least he’ll always be a champion of life.
Des came with the thunder as well
This year brought us more gripping cultural obsessions than any year in recent memory. Between record-breaking blockbuster films, the penultimate installment of the epic Game of Thrones series, phenomena like the fidget spinner, and huge news from some of our favorite artists, 2017’s most memorable moments provide endless Halloween costume inspiration.
For some people, it’s a holiday — for us, it’s a freakin’ lifestyle.
Naturally, we’re happier than kids in a (Halloween) candy store. At POPSUGAR, we don’t take Halloween lightly; we start burning Autumn-scented candles as soon as the first leaf changes, taste-test pumpkin spice snacks in the middle of Summer, and begin our horror movie marathons immediately after Labor Day. For some people, it’s a holiday — for us, it’s a freakin’ lifestyle.
When our editors are on the ground covering fan events like Comic-Con and WonderCon, they’re observing the latest cosplay trends with Halloween on the brain. Meanwhile, we’re always making note of cultural conversations unfolding on the internet and looking at them through a Halloween lens: would this meme make a good costume? Is that celebrity moment perfect Halloween inspiration? The day-to-day stories that get us talking are often some of the best costume fodder come Oct. 31, so we’ve always got an eye out for the next big thing.
Using our editors’ passion for Halloween, we’ve created a master list of the top 10 costumes for 2017. You can expect to see these costumes everywhere this October, but don’t worry: we’ll share how to execute them like nobody else.
Major moments: A teen murder-mystery series inspired by the Archie comics? Yes, please! Riverdale is our favorite «f*ck-being-guilty-about-it» pleasure, and the main characters from the show are perfect Halloween costume fodder. The only trouble will be determining which friends should dress up as Archie Andrews, Jughead Jones, Betty Cooper, and Veronica Lodge.
How to create it at home: Each character has a signature clothing item or accessory, like Archie’s letterman jacket or Jughead’s beanie. Decide which person you want to channel, then create an outfit featuring their go-to pieces. Get the full Riverdale costume tutorials for each character here!
Honorable mentions: Aside from the obvious additions to this Riverdale group — like Cheryl and Jason Blossom or Josie and the Pussycats — you can also draw inspiration from another cult-favorite TV show that had a major moment this year. Your crew can easily dress as the women from Big Little Lies with stuff already in your closet — just have everybody create their closest imitation of an Audrey Hepburn outfit! Bonus points if you throw an Elvis or two into the mix.
Beyoncé’s Pregnancy AnnouncementMajor moments:
Do you remember where you were when you found out that Beyoncé was expecting twins? We do! Queen Bey’s ethereal pregnancy announcement photo became instantly iconic, imitated — for better or worse — by people everywhere. And it’s not going to stop now that Bey and Jay have welcomed their babies; expect to see pregnant Beyoncé costumes everywhere come Halloween.
How to create it at home: Collect a few key pieces, blast your favorite Beyoncé song, then get ready for your close-up.
- Green tulle
- Flower crown
- Burgundy bralette
Honorable mentions: Beyoncé didn’t just serve up one fierce look for Halloween inspiration this year — pretty much every appearance she’s made in 2017 is costume-worthy, and the goddess-like getup she wore during her Grammys performance is almost as iconic as her pregnancy announcement. With a sunray crown, a sparkly golden gown, and stunning jewelry, you’ll feel like heaven on earth while wearing your Halloween costume.
The Handmaid’s Tale
Major moments: 2017 proved that The Handmaid’s Tale isn’t just excellent reading material in the form of Margaret Atwood’s dystopian novel — it also makes for an incredible viewing experience. Fans couldn’t get enough of Hulu’s addictive interpretation, and neither could the TV industry; the show took home a whopping five awards on Emmys night. Because the handmaids in the series have such a distinctive wardrobe, they’ll be an easy and popular Halloween costume this year.
How to create it at home: Interested in joining the resistance? Here’s everything you’ll need for your handmaid costume:
- A red cloak
- A white bonnet
- A tan mesh bag
- Black ankle boots
Honorable mentions: This has been an excellent year for female-focused TV shows, and another one that would make for a great group costume is Insecure — who doesn’t want to dress as Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany?
Wonder WomanMajor moments: When the story of Amazon demigoddess and all-around badass Diana Prince hit theaters this Summer, it didn’t just become the highest grossing superhero origin film. Wonder Woman also changed the conversation about women in Hollywood forever. Our editors were brought to tears by the movie’s unapologetic representation of female strength and heroism, and by the immediate effect Wonder Woman had on little girls worldwide. So why not honor the film’s flawless blend of femininity, boldness, beauty, and badassery through a costume that reflects Diana’s role as both warrior and woman? You can choose Diana’s classic red, blue, and gold armor, or you can go for a fun nod to the film with her blue evening gown and hidden sword.How to create it at home: Want to channel your inner Amazonian warrior this Halloween? There are several ways to achieve Diana Prince’s strong, sexy look for Halloween, so check out our full Wonder Woman costume tutorials here.Honorable mentions:
There are even more ways to approach a Wonder Woman costume this Halloween; you could opt for the training gear that Diana rocks back on the island of Themyscira, or you could rock her Victorian street clothes and bowler hat from the movie! If you’ve got a group, everybody could dress as a different iteration of Diana.
Pennywise the Clown from It
Major moments: The highly anticipated remake of Stephen King’s It only hit theaters in early September, but it’s already become the most talked-about horror film in recent memory! We have absurdly funny memes, newfound crushes, and dance challenges inspired by the movie, so you’d best believe that the movie’s terrifying antagonist, Pennywise the Dancing Clown, will be everywhere on Halloween night. (Even the sewers! We all float down there, right?)
How to create it at home: You can’t scare your friends as Pennywise without some essential costume elements, like:
- A red balloon
- Face paint
- A ruffled clown collar
Honorable mentions: Looking for a less overtly spooky option? The kids from Stranger Things make for a great group costume with a nostalgic ’80s twist — and it’s especially timely considering that season two hits Netflix mere days before Halloween.
Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen
Major moments: The night of the Game of Thrones season seven finale, you could find the majority of the internet screaming something along the lines of: «OH MY GOD, OH MY GOD, IT FINALLY HAPPENED!» That’s because fan-favorite contenders for the Iron Throne, Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen, finally indulged their romantic tension — and it was glorious. So glorious, in fact, that we predict this Halloween will be filled with «Jonerys» couples costumes. Though, if we had to guess, only the bravest will attempt to re-create Jon’s most talked about . . . ahem, asset.
How to create it at home: The key to channeling Jon Snow is a fur wrap, a sword, and a brooding look. For Daenerys, you’ll need:
- A blond braid
- A dragon pin
- A black dress
Honorable mentions: Other Game of Thrones couples worthy of Halloween costume tributes this year include Brienne and Tormund, Greyworm and Missandei, and Jaime and Cersei. Take your pick!
Major moments: Ah, the internet. It’s the only place where a flamboyant Turkish steak connoisseur could become an overnight viral hit, catapulted to stardom and success purely due to the theatrical finesse with which he salts and seasons his meat. Salt Bae became a quintessential page in the book of meme history, and thanks to his signature outfit and culinary flair, you’ll also see him at Halloween parties everywhere come Oct. 31.
How to create it at home: Perhaps the easiest costume to create from this entire list, you’ll only need a few things that you already have in your closet to channel Salt Bae. Ready to get salty? Check out the full Salt Bae costume tutorial here. (For bonus Halloween street cred, bring some steak with you — you’ll make people laugh and have a snack for the road. It’s a win-win!)
Honorable mentions: You can easily turn another of the year’s biggest memes — badass Olenna Tyrell from Game of Thrones — into a Halloween costume with just a veil, pillbox-style hat, and an «I don’t give a f*ck» expression on your face. Just take notes from this cosplayer, who flawlessly executed her own Olenna costume.
Zombie Taylor Swift
Major moments: After a lengthy hiatus, Taylor Swift made headlines when she dropped her «Look What You Made Me Do» music video — laden with not-so-subtle references — at the 2017 VMAs. Declaring that «the old Taylor» is dead, Taylor appears in the video as a zombie form of herself. It’s the perfect balance of spooky and pop-culturally aware for a Halloween costume, so we predict we’ll see plenty of undead Swifties on Oct. 31.
How to create it at home: Hoping to bring Taylor Swift to life — er, death — for Halloween? Here’s what you’ll need:
- A light blue dress
- Zombie makeup
- A short blond wig
Honorable mentions: The group costume possibilities related to Taylor Swift are endless. Because she appears as so many iterations of herself in the «LWYMMD» video, you can essentially take your pick of different Taylors and channel your favorite one. Grab a group of friends and each play a different Taylor! If you’re sticking to a solo costume but want something that’s not as involved as full zombie makeup, try Taylor from the cover of her album Reputation with a ripped sweater, slicked hair, and dark lipstick.
Major moments: You can run and you can hide, but in 2017 you simply can’t avoid the massive hype that is the fidget spinner. And while it’s not exactly a traditional sort of costume, you can expect people to replicate this controversial toy while trick-or-treating this October . . . maybe even while holding a fidget spinner or two of their own.
How to create it at home: To create your perfect fidget spinner costume, you’ll need to get a bit crafty; so grab your scissors and some glue, then check out the full costume tutorial here.
Honorable mentions: Another sensation has been the dancing hot dog Snapchat filter, which could easily be replicated with headphones and a t-shirt with red and yellow stripes of «mustard and ketchup» down the front.
Major moments: At cosplay-heavy fan conventions this year, one particular cosplay (literally) made waves: Disney’s ocean-obsessed Polynesian princess, Moana. The brave, resourceful, and curious teenager is beloved by kids and adults alike, and her simple getup is an easy one to replicate as a Halloween costume.
How to create it at home: How far will you go to re-create Moana’s outfit? You’ll need:
- A Polynesian-inspired skirt
- A burnt orange top
- A red or burnt orange scarf belt
- A blue pendant necklace
Honorable mentions: Other popular characters from Moana include the island goddess Te Fiti, the trickster Maui, and Moana’s sassy grandma. Sounds like the makings of a perfect group costume, eh?
