Wendy Williams takes three weeks off… A new baby Bieber… Ryan Reynolds is getting into gin… Ed Sheeran addresses wedding rumors… and Rihanna celebrated her big 3-0!
Wendy Williams took a few days off work because she was suffering from flu-like symptoms, but she came back on the air yesterday to reveal a bigger problem. She says doctors have diagnosed her with Graves’ Disease, which is causing her to have difficulty sleeping, weight loss, anxiety, and it’s making her feel like “birds are swimming around” her head, which may explain why she fainted on live TV a few weeks ago. And her doctor’s prescription? Three weeks vacation!
Wendy shares the news that she is taking three weeks off due to issues with hyperthyroidism and Graves’ disease.
Justin Bieber’s getting a new baby brother or sister. His dad Jeremy married Chelsey Rebelo in Jamaica on Monday. Yesterday, he posted a picture of his new bride in a bikini with her little belly poking out. He captioned it, “My beautiful wife and….” While dad continues his honeymoon in Montego Bay, Justin and Selena Gomez flew back home to LA. They were seen going to church together last night.
Ryan Reynolds decided to get into the devil water business. He is now a “significant owner” of Aviation Gin. Ryan says he chose this over more popular spirits like vodka and tequila because one taste had him sold. I’m sure he’s hoping for the same success George Clooney had with his Casamigos Tequila, which he and his partner Rande Gerber sold for over $700 million last year.
Ed Sheeran wore what looked like a wedding ring when he performed in London Monday night. So at last night’s BRIT Awards, a red carpet reporter asked him what was up with that. Ed said it’s not a wedding band…it’s an engagement ring! He said, “I don’t know…I feel like it’s good to both do things.” He said he and Cherry Seaborn haven’t set a wedding date, but that it will be a situation where no one knows when it will happen.
Rihanna celebrated her big 3-0 with a black tie dinner in NYC with her close family and friends, followed by an after-party featuring Rihanna’s favorite performer, Toni Braxton! Who knew? RiRi posted a picture on her Instagram showing herself onstage with Toni, captioning it, “finally met my fav! thank you for making my night so special! I’ll never forgive you for looking this good at my party tho.” Page Six reports that Leonardo DiCaprio sneaked into a side room for the after-party, where Rihanna was snuggled up with her billionaire Saudi boyfriend, Hassan Jameel. And champagne was flowing! They reportedly went through HUNDREDS of bottles.
