Kourtney Kardashian has become BFFs with TikTok star Addison Rae. They met because Kourtney’s kids are fans of Addison and they hit it off. They post a lot of pictures together and people just aren’t understanding this relationship. Kourtney posted some pictures of them posing in the pool in their tiny bikinis and people were commenting things like, “This friendship still weirds me tf out” and “shes 41 and she’s hanging around with 19 year olds in swimming pools.” But Kourtney doesn’t care. She responded, “Do you suggest a better place. I’m looking for ideas …”

Tom Hardy’s name was trending over the weekend after a report came out that he would be the next James Bond. Daniel Craig’s fifth and final James Bond movie, “No Time to Die,” hits theaters in November. At least, it’s supposed to. The report says if the movie is delayed again, they announcement about Tom will be delayed, as well. So far, no comment from Tom, Daniel or the movie studio.

Kanye has been tearing up Twitter this weekend. Right now, he’s obsessed with getting the rights to his music from his record label. He’s also looking out for his fellow artists. On friday, Kanye tweeted, “I’M GOING TO PERSONALLY SEE TO IT THAT TAYLOR SWIFT GETS HER MASTERS BACK. SCOOTER IS A CLOSE FAMILY FRIEND.” He also tweeted what he thinks the new guidelines for musicians and record labels should be, and a lot of what he tweeted made really good sense. But he also got way off track when he tweeted, “I am the new head of adidas I will make sure all shoes have no laces as Run DMC told me to do … look natural … no laces. I am the head of adidas … I will bring adidas and puma back together and bring me and jay back together … all pumas designs are embarrassingly trash but I will personally design puma and adidas and make everything ok.” Kanye later apologized for trashing Puma publicly, and Adidas hasn’t said that Kanye is the head of their company. Obviously, Kim Kardashian is very upset about what’s happening and feels helpless to do anything about it. A source told Page Six that Kanye’s bipolar disorder and his anti-abortion stance have taken a toll on their marriage. The source said, “Kim has the whole divorce planned out, but she’s waiting for him to get through his latest episode.”

After a rocky summer, Season 18 of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” kicks off today and, as promised, she talked all about the allegations of a toxic work environment. The season premiere has already been filmed, and according to People, Ellen was supported by her wife Portia de Rossi and the crew who applauded as she walked on to the set. A source said it was very emotional for everyone, but Ellen didn’t hold anything back in her opening monologue, describing it as “poignant and funny and very much a candid take on what happened over the summer. She understands her audience wants to hear from her and is looking forward to talking directly to them on Monday.” Ellen was originally supposed to come back on Sept. 9, but they needed more time to work things out internally before production could resume. For now, there will be no audience, but celebrity guests will appear alongside Ellen. Her first guest today is Tiffany Haddish. Kerry Washington, Alec Baldwin, K-pop star SuperM and Kris Jenner are scheduled to appear during premiere week.

Jimmy Kimmel hosted last night’s virtual Emmys, which wasn’t really that bad. There was no live audience, and all the nominees sat at home with someone wearing a hazmat suit standing outside with an Emmy, just in case their name was announced as the winner. A lot of people were shocked when Zendaya’s name was announced as the winner for Lead Actress in a Drama series for “Euphoria.” She was up against Jennifer Aniston (“The Morning Show”), Olivia Coleman (“The Crown”), Laura Linney (“Ozark”), Sandra Oh (“Killing Eve”) and Jodie Comer (“Killing Eve”) — all older and more experienced actresses. Even Zendaya wasn’t expecting to win! But congratulations to her for the win, and for the news that “Euphoria” has been renewed for a second season. Other big winners of the night included HBO’s “Schitt’s Creek,” which won Best Comedy Series, Best Actor and Actress in a Comedy Series for Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara, and Best Supporting Actor and Actress in a Comedy Series for Daniel Levy and Annie Murphy. Best Drama Series went to HBO’s “Succession,” which also had the Best Actor in a Drama Series, Jeremy Strong. For a complete list of winners, visit Emmys.com.
