Starting tonight at 7pm CST, for the next 24 hours, celebrities like Oprah, Julia Roberts, Rob Lowe, Jennifer Garner, Common, Josh Groban, Marie Kondo and George W. Bush will all do SOMETHING that will be live streamed on Unite.us, as well as Facebook, YouTube, Twitch, Twitter, LinkedIn and more. They can sing, read poetry, teach a lesson on something, dance, lead a meditation….whatever they want to share.

At last check, the All In Challenge has raised over $27M for Feeding America, Meals on Wheels, World Central Kitchen and No Kid Hungry. Chris Pratt recently offered up a pretty cool experience for a raffle. You could join Chris and the cast for a behind-the-scenes look at the production of the next “Jurassic World” movie where you will have the opportunity to be “eaten by a dinosaur.” Also, Shawn Mendes is raffling a chance for you and a guest to meet him on the set of an upcoming music video shoot. It also says, “The winner will be given the opportunity to have a cameo appearance in the video.” And this has Ana’s name written all over it, but unfortunately, we can’t afford it. Up for auction, Michael Che will perform your joke on an upcoming Weekend Update! And once “Saturday Night Live” is back up and running, you and your guest will be there to tour the set, meet the cast, watch the show and go to the after party!!! At last check, the bid is up to $55K. Sorry, Ana!!

Anderson Cooper made the big announcement on TV last night, but it you missed it, it’s on his Instagram. He’s a daddy! Little Wyatt Morgan Cooper was born on Monday, named after Anderson’s late father, Wyatt. Morgan is a family name on his mother’s side. I had TEARS reading what he said last night. “As a gay kid, I never thought it would be possible to have a child, and I’m grateful for all those who have paved the way, and for the doctors and nurses and everyone involved in my son’s birth. Most of all, I am grateful to a remarkable surrogate who carried Wyatt, and watched over him lovingly, and tenderly, and gave birth to him.” Anderson’s parents and his brother have all passed away, but Anderson said, “I like to believe they can see him. I imagine them all together, arms around each other, smiling and laughing, happy to know that their love is alive in me and in Wyatt, and that our family continues.”
CNN’s @AndersonCooper is a dad.
“On Monday I became a father. I’ve never said that out loud and it astonishes me,” he said Thursday at the end of the #CNNTownHall.

Quarantine has been messing with some people’s heads more than others. Some think Madonna may have reached her breaking point. In the latest entry of her Quarantine Diary, which you can check out on her Instagram, Madonna revealed, “Took a test the other day and I found out that I have the antibodies. So tomorrow, I’m just going to go for a long drive in a car, and I’m going to roll down the window, and I’m going to breathe in…I’m going to breathe in the COVID-19 air. Yep, I hope the sun is shining….” So, if she has the antibodies, that means she already had coronavirus, right? Although, she didn’t say if she’d suffered any symptoms, so maybe she didn’t….But does she think having antibodies makes her immune? The CDC says having antibodies doesn’t necessarily make you immune to the virus. Madonna has me very confused…
One of Eminem’s fans wanted to meet him, so he broke into his house! TMZ broke that story that almost a month ago, this guy used a paving stone to break the window in Eminem’s kitchen and climbed inside. The security alarm woke Eminem and he ended up coming face-to-face with the intruder in his living room! What EXACTLY happened next is a little unclear. One report says Eminem called his security guards and they came in and grabbed the guy. But Eminem’s rep told XXL that Eminem wasn’t asleep and he didn’t call for security. He held the man himself until police arrived. Either way, 27-year-old Matthew David Hughes is just lucky he didn’t get shot. However, he’s been sitting in jail since April 6 because he can’t make his $50K bond.
