Tristan Thompson still gets regularly heckled during away games with the Cavs, as fans are still pissed about him allegedly cheating on Khloe Kardashian. Koko just wishes they’d stop it and see the best in him like she does.
Khloe Kardashian may have been able to forgive and somewhat forget about BF Tristan Thompson allegedly cheating on her with a strip club worker a week before she delivered their baby girl True in April. But the Cleveland Cavaliers star regularly gets booed when he plays away from home court at Quicken Loans Area. NBA fans apparently still feel he’s a bad guy for breaking Khloe’s heart, and her fans still troll him on social media. Even though she’s all good with her baby daddy now, Koko wishes others would cut him some slack as well.
“Khloe is upset and frustrated that people are still so hard on Tristan, she is ready to put the negativity of his cheating behind them and move ahead as a happy family. Khloe appreciates that people want to have her back but she does not feel that she needs protection from Tristan at this point. She is choosing to see the best in Tristan and she is hoping that her fans, her friends and her family will all do the same. Khloe is ready for a happy new chapter and is very much looking forward to the new year,” a source close to the 34-year-old reality star tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Tristan and the Cavs were playing the Brooklyn Nets at Barclays Center on Dec. 3 and the crowd in the stands was heckling him so bad that they got an angry reaction out of the 27-year-old. After being called a “bum” and other not-so-nice names by New York fans, Tristan lost it and gave the them a middle finger salute. That’s pretty bad to have his head taken out of the game and into the stands like that. What a loss of focus for a pro-athlete.
Even Khloe’s sis Kendall Jenner, 22, has been caught booing Tristan! She had floor seats to watch on-again BF Ben Simmons‘ Philadelphia 76ers take on the Cavs at home and when TT got ready to go for a free throw, the entire arena erupted in massive boos. Kenny was caught on video playfully joining in with the hecklers who were trying to get inside of Tristan’s head. Khloe took notice and tweeted out ““Look at my baby heckler. I’m dying at Kenny trying to heckle on the low low! #ItDidntWork.”
Kendall Jenner and Ben Simmons are back on and going very strong. The supermodel just spent a romantic weekend with her NBA baller beau — and even met his mom. So are they finally exclusive?
Kendall Jenner has clearly called a timeout on her hiatus with Ben Simmons, 22. The supermodel and the superstar athlete –who abruptly ended their romance in August — have been spending all kinds of time together in recent weeks. But they really took things to the next level over the weekend when Kendall, 21, visited the 76ers player in Philadelphia. A source tells HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY that during her visit the reality beauty bonded with Ben’s mom, too. And that’s not all — Kendall and Ben kicked off the holidays together with ice skating, tree trimming and lots of cuddle time!
Roseanne may be long gone, but The Conners is going strong. Many people assumed the spin-off of Roseanne would fail without its most famous (and controversial) character. But despite killing off the family matriarch in the first episode, people are still tuning in to watch. Though ratings aren’t as high as they were for the premiere of Roseanne last March, the new version of the show is still pulling in about 7 million viewers a night.
ABC hasn’t decided yet whether it will renew The Conners for another season. But for now, the remaining cast members are earning good money for their roles on the sitcom.
John Goodman’s salary for The Conners

Goodman’s character Dan Conner has spent this season struggling to come to terms with his wife’s death following an opioid overdose. He’s earning $375,000 per episode for his work on The Conners, according to Variety. That means he’ll take home $4.125 million for the entire 11-episode season.
Goodman actually got a pay raise following the cancellation of Roseanne. He was earning $250,000 an episode for his work on the 2018 reboot. Goodman has a net worth of $65 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
What the rest of The Conners cast is earning
Two of the other biggest stars of The Conners are also earning hefty six-figure paychecks for the show. Sara Gilbert, who plays Darlene Conner-Healy, and Laurie Metcalf, who plays Jackie Harris, are both getting $375,000 an episode — the same as Goodman. Gilbert has a net worth of $35 million and Metcalf is worth $8 million.
Per-episode salaries for the other main cast members, including Lecy Goranson, Michael Fishman, and Emma Kenney, haven’t been revealed.
Is Roseanne Barr making any money from The Conners?

ABC fired Roseanne Barr after her racist tweets involving Obama administration official Valerie Jarrett. But getting rid of the actress wasn’t as simple as handing her a pink slip.
In normal circumstances, Barr would be entitled to receive money from The Conners. That’s because she helped create the character Roseanne Conner. But ABC wanted to make sure that the actress wouldn’t benefit financially from the new show. Barr and the network agreed to a one-time payment that one source described to the Hollywood Reporter as “go-away money.”
One reason the network was ready to write Roseanne a check to walk away from the show? They’d already agreed to pay Goodman, Gilbert, and Metcalf for the next season, and they’d have to hand over that cash whether any episodes were filmed or not. ABC also stood to lose tens of millions in lost ad revenue if they couldn’t find a show to replace Roseanne.
I regret the circumstances that have caused me to be removed from Roseanne,” Barr said in a statement after the agreement was reached. “I agreed to the settlement in order that 200 jobs of beloved cast and crew could be saved, and I wish the best for everyone involved.”
Veteran character actor Philip Bosco, who won a Tony Award in 1989 for “Lend Me a Tenor” as an opera impresario and was nominated five other times, died Monday, according to his grandson, Luke Bosco. He was 88.
Bosco received his first Tony nomination for “Rape of the Belt” in 1960. His other nominations were for “Heartbreak House,” “You Never Can Tell,” “Moon Over Buffalo” and “Twelve Angry Men.”
Bosco also appeared in “A Man for All Seasons,” “King Lear,” “The Crucible,” “A Streetcar Named Desire,” “The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial,” “An Inspector Calls,” “The Heiress, ” Twelfth Night” and “Copenhagen.” He was inducted into the American Theatre Hall of Fame in 1998.
Luke Bosco wrote in a Facebook post: “My beloved grandfather, an indomitable force in the theater and a man of goodness beyond measure, passed away yesterday evening. We will not soon forget your grace, your courage, your resolute will, or the love which you found so easily all around you. You are my hero and a hero to so many other young actors across the generations that strive for greatness not for glory’s sake, but for the love of the art. And let’s not forget your irresistible urge to crack a joke in any setting. I never knew a man that could congratulate and taunt his fellow nominees in a single breath. You will be dearly missed.”
In feature films, Bosco starred in Tamara Jenkins’ “The Savages” as the estranged father of Laura Linney and Philip Seymour Hoffman’s characters. He portrayed the boss who fired Sigourney Weaver’s character and hires Melanie Griffith’s character at the end of “Working Girl.” His television work included a Daytime Emmy Award in 1988 for his appearance in the ABC Afterschool Special “Read Between The Lines”and he was a series regular on FX’s “Damages.”
Other feature credits included “A Lovely Way to Die,” “The Pope of Greenwich Village,” “Children of a Lesser God,” “Three Men and a Baby,” “The First Wives Club” and “Wonder Boys.”
Hi, me again, I really want to keep talking about Priyanka and Nick’s wedding if that’s OK with you. I could go on and on about my thoughts regarding their big day, and fortunately, a ton of Twitter users are in the same boat, as illustrated by the abundance of tweets about Priyanka Chopra’s wedding dress circulating the site. There are way too many tweets about the celeb couple’s nuptials to count, but practically all of them are praising how fab Chopra looks in her wedding day attire.
Keep in mind, I’m almost surprised how much positive feedback Chopra is getting for her look — not because she isn’t stunning, of course, but because so many of the people tweeting, myself included, all spent our tween years picturing ourselves getting married to Nick Jonas. How nice of us to be supportive and not salty! TBH, I’m still a little bitter (I went to 13 Jonas Brothers concerts! Where is my lifelong partner?), but Chopra made such an incredibly beautiful bride, I can’t help but gush about their big day. Maybe I wasn’t meant to be Mrs. Jonas, but Chopra certainly was, and she really started this next chapter of her life in style.
ICYMI, Chopra and Jonas had two different ceremonies to make their love official. One was an incredibly Christian ceremony, officiated by Jonas’s father, and the second one was a mind-blowingly beautiful traditional Hindu wedding ceremony — and of course, both Konas and Chopra stunned at both events. Prior to the big day, Chopra didn’t give us many hints about what she’d be wearing, beyond mentioning at the God’s Love We Deliver, Golden Heart Awards that it was "going to be cute and comfortable." Later, she revealed in an interview that Ralph Lauren would be designing a custom gown for her Christian ceremony.
And just as she said, we now know that, for her Western ceremony, Chopra opted for that custom Ralph Lauren gown. It was sheer, it was long sleeved, it was hand-embroidered, and it looked like it walked straight out of your dreams when you were a little girl. Pearl buttons and a scalloped collar finished off the stunning look, but most dramatic of all was the 75-foot tulle veil that trailed behind Chopra as she walked down the aisle. It was so long, in fact, that Chopra needed the help of five people to carry it.
Naturally, this fairytale of a dress elicited a slew of tweets that expressed the same feeling of OMFG that you’re probably experiencing right now:
For her Hindu ceremony, Chopra wore an equally stunning but radically different dress. By Indian designer Sabyasachi, the traditional lehenga was crafted from hand-cut organza flowers and Siam-red crystals. According to Harper’s Bazaar, it took "110 embroiderers in Calcutta and 3,720 hours to create this insanely intricate look." Talk about lavish! There’s no doubt that this wedding will go down in history as one of the most stylish of all time.
It’s official! Kevin Hartis hosting the 2019 Oscars.
The comedian and movie star announced the news via social media on Tuesday.
“For years I have been asked if I would ever host the Oscars and my answer was always the same,” Kevin wrote in a lengthy statement. “I said that it would be the opportunity of a lifetime for me as a comedian and that it will happen when it’s supposed to. I am so happy to say the day has finally come for me to host the Oscars.”
Just prior to Hart’s major reveal, several outlets reported that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences was in talks with the Night School to emcee the star-studded ceremony.
Kevin’s post continued, “I am blown away simply because this has been a goal on my list for a long time… To be able to join the legendary list of hosts that have graced the stage is unbelievable. I know my mom is smiling from ear to ear right now.”
2018 Oscars Red Carpet Fashion
“I want to thank my family/friends/fans for supporting me & riding with me all this time… I will be sure to make this years Oscars a special one. I appreciate the @TheAcademy for the opportunity…. now it’s time to rise to the occasion #Oscars,” he concluded.
Most recent Oscars hosts include Jimmy Kimmel, Chris Rock, Neil Patrick Harris, Ellen DeGeneresand Seth MacFarlane.
As for Kevin’s experience in presiding over award shows, he’s no rookie. The funnyman hosted the 2016 MTV Movie Awards alongside Central Intelligence co-host Dwayne “The Rock Johnson, as well as the 2011 BET Awards and 2012 MTV Video Music Awards.
In other Academy Awards-related updates, in September it was announced that the new Popular Film category would be postponed after all.
The Academy shared in a statement at the time, “The Academy recognized that implementing any new award nine months into the year creates challenges for films that have already been released. The Board of Governors continues to be actively engaged in discussions, and will examine and seek additional input regarding this category.”
The nominees for the 91st Annual Oscars are set to be unveiled on January 13, 2020. The 2019 Academy Awards will air February 24, 2019 on ABC.
Congratulations to Kevin! We can’t wait to see you shine.

“Sweaty hair, don’t care” should be Demi Lovato‘s new mantra if it isn’t already.
The “Confident” singer was looking just that in a new photo she posted on Instagram on Tuesday. The selfie showed Lovato simply glowing after a workout and soft smiling at the camera. Perhaps she also lives by that “I don’t sweat, I sparkle” mentality, because she sure looks it.
“Sweaty, messy jiu jitsu hair,” she captioned the photo. Lovato was wearing her martial arts outfit in the picture. She revealed in her hashtag that she is a blue belt, which means she is at the intermediate level of the sport.
She tagged Unbreakable Performance Center, which is a gym that has a slew of high-profile clientele, including Noah Centineo and Wiz Khalifa.
Inside Demi Lovato’s Post-Rehab Recovery: Everything We Know
Ever since leaving rehab in November after her drug overdose in July, the “Skyscraper” artist has been focusing heavily on her health and wellness routine.
A source told E! News in November how her regimen and outlook have changed. “She’s been working out with a trainer several days per week, eating right, and truly has a whole different mindset,” the source explained. “She has been following all of the steps and guidelines put in place by her specialists.”
She has reportedly been attending meetings at a “private wellness center,” which is another part of her new commitment to sobriety and health.
Lovato has been spending much of her free time surrounding herself with family and friends. In November, she was seen out laughing with some friends as well as alongside clothing designer Henri Alexander Levy, who has been acting as a “sober companion” for Lovato. Another insider told E! News at the time, “Demi wants to be around people who are like-minded and Henri is good energy for her. They spend a huge amount of time together but Demi is not focused on dating. Demi is very focused on her health.”
Plus, she recently came the defense of one of her backup dancers and clapped back at someone who called her team “rotten.”
Demi has been focusing on her family, too. “She stays majority of her time with her mom. She has mandatory check-ins with doctors often, and is being heavily supervised in her sober facility,” the source said.
Another source informed E! News in October that Lovato is becoming “a new version of herself.” The insider said, “Demi is doing great and is really receptive to the help that she is getting. Treatment has really changed her and she is looking forward to remaining sober and her new outlook on life.”

Rumor has it that there is another Jonas brother wedding on the horizon. Fresh on the heels of Nick Jonas’ wedding to Priyanka Chopra, the rumor is that Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner are preparing for a destination wedding of their own next year in France. I’m sure my invite will arrive any day now. While I wait by my mailbox, we can kill some time by speculating about this couple’s chances for a happily ever after, based on Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas’ astrological compatibility.
Turner was born on February 21, under the sign of Pisces, and Jonas was born August 15, making him a Leo. So, how are these two signs when they are in a relationship? Is it the fairytale were hoping for? One that is guaranteed to go the distance? While only time will tell for Jonas and Turner, I can tell you this: Based on their zodiac signs, it may not be so easy, because Leo and Pisces are not highly compatible — at all. That doesn’t automatically spell doom for the couple, but it means long-term success it will take a little more work — that is if they are both true to their signs’ characteristics. Don’t worry, it’s not all bad news; there are some areas of strength to work with. Here is what we can guess about this couple’s dynamic based on what we know about their astrological signs’ compatibility.
There is an instant connection between Pisces and Leo.
Some signs need a little time to warm up to one another, but that is not so with Pisces and Leo. Leo’s innate charisma means the Lion has no trouble sweeping Pieces of their feet. Both signs are hopeless romantics and, when that connection happens so fast, they can’t help but feel like it’s love at first sight. Pisces is so enamored with Leo that their adoration helps to feed the Lion’s ego. So, short-term, this is an extremely passionate connection.
Communication will be a struggle.
Trouble begins with their communication styles. Both have the tendency to be blunt and speak their minds, but also to be ultra-sensitive and take what the other to deeply to heart. Leo’s association with the sun and reason makes them feel like they are just giving Pieces a reality check. For Pisces’ part, they are just saying what they see, but their gift for intuition can often mean their observations cut far deeper than they intend. For Leo, that is a huge blow to the ego, and to Pieces that feels like a betrayal of their connection. So, there is a real danger of resentment and anger growing between the two signs.
If they want to make it long term, they will need a lot of patience and empathy.
For this couple to have any chance of successfully transitioning from a short and epic romance to something secure and long-term, they will both need to practice a lot of patience and empathy. For Leo, that can be a struggle, but when their heart is truly invested, even the proud Lion can try to make some changes. For Pisces, it’s about really giving their all to the relationship and believing that love can conquer all — and, in their case, it really can. It just might take a few tries. Which is why it’s not uncommon to see this duo of signs break up and make up several times before making it work for good.
The fact that Turner and Jonas are still together and taking things slowly bodes well for their chances. Often times, a more volatile Leo and Pisces couple will rush down the aisle while things are good, thinking that will solve all their problems. But in the case of this fire and water sign, slow and steady will win the race.
Only Dolly Parton could go on a national talk show and talk about a threesome involving Jennifer Aniston.
Yes, that happened.
Parton, 72, blew up “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” Monday night as she discussed writing the music for Aniston’s Netflix film “Dumplin’ ” (streaming Friday) and how excited her husband of 52 years, Carl Thomas Dean, was about the concept.
“I love her to death,” Parton said of Aniston, 49, who stars in and produced the movie. “My husband is crazy about her, and he was more excited that I was going to do a movie with her than he was that I got the chance to write all this music. I think he fantasizes, like, a threesome.”
Then Parton made a clever quip (seen in the NSFW clip below) about her husband being too old for the situation, causing Fallon to collapse in surprised laughter.
Aniston, too, was pretty stunned by Parton’s comments.
“My mouth just dropped,” Aniston tells USA TODAY. “And then I laughed my (butt) off. That’s Dolly. “
Fully composed by Tuesday, Aniston says the comments were just Dolly being her classic, outrageous self, which is why the colorful country music legend looms so large in “Dumplin’,” the story of a plus-size teenager (Danielle Macdonald) who enters a pageant organized by her former beauty queen mother (Aniston).
