Laura Dern won her first Emmy Award on Sunday night thanks to her stellar performance as Renata Klein on Big Little Lies. During her heartfelt acceptance speech, Laura thanked her «amazing children, for their big, brave hearts,» and after the show, she linked up with them to celebrate her outstanding supporting actress in a limited series or movie win at HBO’s annual afterparty. On the red carpet, Laura beamed with pride while holding her Emmy next to her handsome 18-year-old son, Ellery Harper, and stunning 12-year-old daughter, Jaya Harper, whom she shares with her ex-husband, musician Ben Harper. The trio posed for photographers on the red carpet and met up with Laura’s Big Little Lies costar Reese Witherspoon and her own 18-year-old daughter, Ava Phillippe. See their lovely family photos.
A source (a gossip-whispering thetan?) tells UsWeekly says that 37-year-old out-and-proud Scientologist Laura Prepon and her 36-year-old down-low Scientologist fiancé Ben Foster are now the parents to a baby girl. Donna from That 70s Show was rumored to be knocked up back in January, then she confirmed said knocking up as well as what she was having on Live! with Kelly & Ryan in June.
According to UsWeekly’s source, the baby was possibly born earlier this week or last week, or who knows? Maybe this baby was born a month ago and already knows it doesn’t like the sound of Unky Ashton’s annoying laugh. Also not known is the name. All we know for sure is that Laura and Ben were seen having dinner in New York City on Tuesday night. They were reportedly seen enjoying “wine and cocktails,” which to me seems like one of the more obvious ways to let everyone know you’re no longer carrying a kid around inside you.
So this means the Church of Scientology has a…whatever they call a baptism, to plan. I’m guessing it’s called something pseudo-scientific and pretentious, like a Small Adult Celestial Enlightenment Ceremony. Actually, I wonder what that would be like? There’s definitely some kind of formal infant gown passed down from child to child with Tom Cruise’s smiling face hand-stitched into it. David Miscavige has John Travolta pour barley water into the baptismal font (aka a bowl placed on the apple crates David and Tom stand on during presentations). Someone dips the cans of an E-meter into the barley water and places them in the baby’s hands. Then the ceremony is complete when the baby has been asked who should be billed for their My First Auditing Session.
Congratulations are in order for Laura Prepon and Ben Foster — they are officially parents! According to Us Weekly, the Orange Is the New Black star recently gave birth to a baby girl. While no other details have been released at the time, news of Laura’s pregnancy first broke in January after she debuted her baby bump at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, UT. This is the first child for both Laura and Ben, who got engaged back in October 2016.
You guys aren’t going to believe this, but we have another teacher scandal on our hands as Central High School (Connecticut) special ed teacher Laura Ramos, 31, was charged with second-degree sexual assault after admitting to getting it on with one of her students.
According to WFSB.com, Laura, who is married, was complaining about not getting any from her “guy”, which led to her fulfilling her desires with an 18-year-old special ed student — details from the report:
The arrest warrant states that two weeks ago a student witness went to school officials saying Ramos started texting him first.
Court documents said “as a ‘normal teacher helping a student,’ but about a month to six weeks ago Mrs. Ramos began telling him about her personal problems.”
The documents went on to say “Ms. Ramos would complain that her ‘man’ or ‘guy’ does not want to have sex or do anything with her.”
The student witness told detectives while Ramos never used a name, he believed it was an 18-year-old special education student who is a junior at Central High School.
“Witness 1 noticed the victim would hang out in Ms. Ramos’ class and…would watch them make eyes at each other like flirting,” court documents said.
Ramos initially denied any sexual relations took place (shocker!), but eventually admitted to having sex with the student numerous times in her car.
Oh and if the sex isn’t enough, Laura also asked the kid to buy some marijuana for her, because why not? Her phone already had a ton of incriminating text messages, might as well get some bonus tree out of the relationship.
Laura is looking at potentially 10 years in prison if she’s convicted.
Sam Claflin first took our breath away with his portrayal of Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games franchise, but it’s his sweet moments with his wife, Laura Haddock, that really gets our hearts beating faster. The couple, who welcomed their first child in December 2015, have shared some swoon-worthy moments over the years. Seriously, these two always look so in love whenever they hit the red carpet together. Take a look back at their sweetest snaps.
Smiling can be a hot topic for women. Because Godtopus forgive we only smile when we feel like it. Catcallers and dirty old men around the world seem to think we’re meant to smile whenever they feel like it. Well, master thespians Laura Linney and Cynthia Nixon know all the intricacies of smiles. And they’re giving the world a quick and ruthless lesson.
«There are smiles that are weapons,» Linney explains in the NY Times video, «There are smiles that are shields.» And presumably the pair wield both as they exchange roles on the regular in the Broadway production of Lillian Hellman’s 1939 classic, Little Foxes.
This vid is ultimately a promo for a play. But the best bit is when these fierce ladies discuss what’d happen if you flipped the tables on rando dudes and demanded they smile. «They wouldn’t even be offended,» Nixon chuckles, «they would just be so confused.»
The Little Foxes is now on Broadway.
Laura Prepon and Ben Foster are expecting a baby girl. The Orange Is the New Black actress revealed the sex of her unborn baby when she stopped by Live with Kelly and Ryan on Thursday. «It’s so wonderful. It’s such a blessing,» she said reflecting on her first pregnancy. «She likes it here — she’s already kicking!» The pair first sparked romance rumors when they were spotted out together in NYC back in July 2016, and they got engaged three months later. Over the past few months, the parents-to-be have made a handful of sweet red carpet appearances together, including the premiere of Netflix’s Five Came Back in March. Congrats to the happy couple!

In previous teasers for the Red Nose Day charity special Love Actually sequel, there was no sign of Laura Linney. Of the many characters who were used and abused in the original film, Laura Linney got it the worst. She was *this close* to making it with Rodrigo Santoro, and sacrificed it all to take care of her…
