Anthony Bourdain was found dead… New Prince album… Reese Witherspoon addresses the rumors… Kelly Clarkson’s diet… and Jax Taylor & Brittany Cartwright are engaged
The Smithsonian once called Anthony Bourdain the “original rock star” of the culinary world and “the Elvis of bad boy chefs.” Anthony was found dead in his hotel room in France this morning. He was 61. CNN is reporting that it was a suicide. Anthony was in France working on an episode of his CNN series, “Parts Unknown.” CNN issued a statement saying, “His love of great adventure, new friends, fine food and drink and the remarkable stories of the world made him a unique storyteller. His talents never ceased to amaze us and we will miss him very much. Our thoughts and prayers are with his daughter and family at this incredibly difficult time.” National Suicide Prevention Lifeline — 1.800.273.8255.

Yesterday would’ve been Prince’s 60th birthday and to mark the occasion, Warner Bros. Records announced that a new Prince album — “Piano & a Microphone 1983” — will be released on September 21st! The album features Prince working through nine tracks at his home studio. Among the songs are “Purple Rain,” the title track from his 1984 movie of the same name. There’s also a spiritual song called “Mary Don’t You Weep.”
This September 21st, the timeless Prince back catalogue welcomes a new, special addition – Piano & A Microphone 1983: 9 tracks and 35 minutes of Prince – solo with just a piano and a microphone. More: https://t.co/cypEBCWjz5 pic.twitter.com/sh0oUc0rKq

Reese Witherspoon confirmed the rumor herself. She posted an Instagram video showing her floating by in a pink sequined bikini — just like Elle Woods in her Harvard audition video in “Legally Blonde” — and captioned it, “It’s true…#LegallyBlonde3.” And Reese is rocking that bikini just as hard in 2018 as she did in 2001!
Kelly Clarkson has reportedly lost 40 pounds and all everyone wants to know is how she did it. Yesterday, Extra published an interview where she revealed that she has a thyroid disorder, but a book she read changed everything for her. The book is called The Plant Paradox by cardiac surgeon Steven R. Gundry. She said, “I literally read this book….and now all my levels are back up. I’m not on medicine anymore because of this book.” She explained, “It’s basically about how we cook our food, non-GMO, no pesticides, eating really organic.” And she says she doesn’t work out AT ALL. The weight loss is all thanks to what she’s been eating.

I don’t know how “Vanderpump Rules” fans feel about it. Has he changed? Is he good enough for her? Whatever way you feel about it, Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright are engaged. Jax popped the question last night in Malibu and yes, the “Vanderpump Rules” camera crew captured it all on film. Brittany posted a picture of her new fiancé’s beaming face and her gigantic “3.14 carat cushion cut GIA certified white diamond, E color, Excellent cut and clarity.” (I know this because I copied it right off the description the ring designer gave on his Instagram.) Brittany captioned the photo with ALL the plugs, “Omg omg!!!!!!!! We are ENGAGED! What a way to start our summer and season 7!! I am so happy, so in love, and so beyond excited for this next chapter of our lives! I can’t wait for all of you to see how he proposed! I am the happiest girl ever right now. 💝👑 love can win 💝💝 #PumpRules thank you @kylechandesign this ring is gorgeous!!!”
