Pop star Nick Lachey is thankful he didn't start a family with his ex-wife Jessica Simpson, insisting it was "probably the best thing that could have ever happened". The 98 Degrees star wed Simpson in 2002, but they split in 2005 after just three years of marriage.
Both singers have since moved on, and Lachey confesses having a baby with the blonde beauty would have made their relationship, which was documented on MTV reality show Newlyweds, all the more complicated.
During a candid interview on Jenny McCarthy's Dirty, Sexy, Funny satellite radio show, he said, "In our situation, that was probably the best thing that could have ever happened that we didn't have kids. And look, you're always going to love your kids no matter how you feel about their other parent, but all things being equal, it was the best thing probably for both of us that we went on with our lives."
Lachey has since settled down with his second wife, TV personality Vanessa, who is pregnant with their second child, while Simpson has also moved on and is now a mum to daughter Maxwell, two, and son Ace, 16 months, with her new husband, former American footballer Eric Johnson.
He continued, "She's obviously happily married with two (kids) and I'm happily married and about to have two so it all worked out the way it was kind of meant to work out."
And Lachey reveals the former couple, which divorced in 2006, has not been in touch since.
He added, "She and I don't necessarily stay in each others lives. I wouldn't say it's friends and I wouldn't say it's enemies - there is just no contact. We both moved on with our lives... it's not animosity, it's not friendship, it's just kind of nothing."
Model-turned-actress Brooke Shields has revealed she lost her virginity to TV Superman Dean Cain in her new memoir There Was A Little Girl: The Real Story Of My Mother And Me. The Blue Lagoon star began dating the actor while they were classmates at Princeton University in the 1980s.
After having sex with Cain, Shields admits she became "overwhelmed" by her decision because she feared her relationship with the Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman star would wreck the close ties she had with her mother, Teri Shields, who was also her manager at the time.
She writes, "He was incredibly and painfully patient with me regarding sex. But even when mom wasn't around, I felt as if she was watching. We were always holding hands and trying to find ways to be alone and kiss, but poor guy, I made him wait and wait and my mom kept track.
"Afterwards I got so overwhelmed that I jumped out of my bed. I actually kind of tumbled off it and started running. I was buck naked streaking down a hallway and running like I had just stolen someone's wallet.
"Dean leapt up and ran after me with the comforter in his arms. He hugged me tight and asked me where I was going. I was afraid I was leaving my mother. I didn't know where I began and where my mother ended and that meant I didn't know how to fit Dean in."
Her romance with Cain was brief and Shields has since wed tennis ace Andre Agassi and Chris Henchy, her current husband.
Former stars of Motorhead reunited at a gig in Britain last week (ends09Nov14). The band's former guitarist 'Fast' Eddie Clarke and drummer Phil 'Philthy' Taylor, who both joined in the late 1970s, got back together with frontman Lemmy at a show in Birmingham, England on Thursday (06Nov14).
Clarke joined the current stars for a rendition of classic hit Ace of Spades during the concert at the National Indoor Arena.
A picture of the pair posing with the current Motorhead line-up was posted on the band's official Twitter.com page with the caption, "Great to have Philthy Animal Taylor and Fast Eddie Clarke join us in Birmingham What a way to start the tour!!!!!!!!!"
Clarke quit Motorhead in 1982, while Taylor left the group in 1984 but returned for another stint on percussion from 1987-1992.
Lemmy previously insisted fans would never see that line-up together again, telling Guitar International magazine the idea of a reunion was out of the question, adding, "They've been out of practice. It's ridiculous to think of it. Then I would be a nostalgia act. I'm all for the now and the future."
Former Kiss star Ace Frehley once suffered a severe allergic reaction to the group's iconic stage make-up and feared he had been left permanently blind. The guitarist, who quit the rock group for good in 2002, reveals he forgot to take the face paint off after a show in Paris, France and woke up the next morning with an extremely swollen face.
Frehley was unable to see and feared the reaction had robbed him of his sight for good, telling Loudwire.com, "I was in Paris, and I bumped into a model, a fashion model that I knew from New York. She was doing a photo shoot there. We ended up getting drunk on about four bottles of Champagne, and I ended up passing out in the bed with my makeup on after the show. When I woke up, I had an allergic reaction from not taking the silver off, because it's ground up metal. My eyes were swollen shut. I was blind...
"They (my managers) rushed a doctor over, and they shot me up with, like, Prednisone, an anti-inflammatory that took it down. But for a minute there, I thought I was blind. I didn't know what had happened. It was insane."
Hip-hop mogul Jay Z has become a part-owner of his favourite Armand de Brignac brand of Champagne, eight years after naming it his bubbly of choice. The Empire State of Mind hitmaker began promoting the drink, nicknamed Ace of Spades due to the symbol on the gold bottles, in 2006 after deciding to lead a boycott of Cristal following critical comments made by managing director Frederic Rouzaud about its popularity among the rap community.
In response, Jay Z withdrew Cristal from sale at his chain of 40/40 Club sports bars, and declared: "It has come to my attention that the managing director of Cristal, Frederic Rouzaud, views the 'hip-hop' culture as 'unwelcome attention'.
"I view his comments as racist and will no longer support any of his products through any of my various brands including the 40/40 Club nor in my personal life."
Jay Z reportedly had a financial deal in place with Armand de Brignac owners to benefit from his wide endorsement, which included a placement in his 2006 video for Show Me What You Got, but now he has become an investor after taking over the stake previously held by executives at Sovereign Brands.
A statement released on Wednesday (05Nov14) reads: "We are proud to announce that Sovereign Brands, a New York-based wine and spirits company owned by the Berish family, has sold its interest in the Armand de Brignac ('Ace of Spades') Champagne brand to a new company led by the globally renowned Shawn 'Jay Z' Carter."
Actress Kerry Washington was honored with a top prize at a fashion awards gala in New York City on Monday night (03Nov14).
The Scandal star was the toast of the Accessories Council's 18th Annual ACE Awards as she picked up the Style Influencer award along with the show's costume designer Lyn Paolo.
As she accepted the honor at the event, held at the Cipriani 42nd Street venue in Manhattan, Washington described how she often collaborates with Paolo on her character Olivia Pope's costumes, telling the audience, "We often talk about the final five minutes in our fitting, which is that moment when the look is OK - it's a great suit, it works - but it's not quite there. How we take it from acceptable to exceptional is with the help of all of you guys - whether it's a Prada purse or Olivia's Movado watch or gloves or a ring."
Other attendees included Dakota Fanning, Naomi Campbell, Jack Huston and Nicky Hilton.
Actress Teri Hatcher and tennis star Caroline Wozniacki laced up their sneakers on Sunday (02Nov14) as they hit the pavement to take part in the New York City Marathon. The Desperate Housewives star befriended Wozniacki and reality TV chef Richard Blais before the big race as they huddled together to keep away the cold, and the actress shared a photo of the trio with fans on her Twitter.com page.
In the accompanying caption, she wrote, "Trying 2 (sic) stay warm & calm prerace w/ (with) new friends fellow runners @CaroWozniacki @RichardBlais".
Hatcher embarked on a leisurely pace once the race started and even stopped for photos along the way with friends and her daughter Emerson, who had turned out to cheer her mum on, while Wozniacki hit the ground running and kept up a good pace throughout the city's five boroughs, completing the 26-mile (41.8 kilometre) feat in three hours, 26 minutes and 33 seconds.
The sportswoman was congratulated at the finish line by her close pal and fellow tennis ace, Serena Williams, who tweeted, "Is it normal to cry when someone finished marathon (sic)? So proud of you caro @CaroWozniacki nycmarathon".
Meanwhile, Twilight actor Peter Facinelli voiced his support for his sister, who was among the more than 50,000 runners who braved the chilly temperatures and strong winds to compete.
Taking to Twitter, he wrote, "Give some cheers 2 my sis @NikoSophiaMom who is running the #nycmarathon. She has about 8 more miles to go. I'm eating a donut in support."
He later added, "Awesome job @NikoSophiaMom She finished in 4 hours 26 min. Who (can) run for that long? Your (sic) an inspiration. Thanks to all for cheering her on."
The 2014 New York City Marathon was won by Kenyan runners Wilson Kipsang and Mary Keitany, who triumphed in the men's and women's races, respectively.
Kipsang recorded a time of two hours, 10 minutes and 59 seconds, while Keitany was not far behind, logging two hours, 25 minutes and seven seconds.
Captain America star Chris Evans has sparked rumours his on/off romance with Minka Kelly is back on after spending time with the actress in recent weeks. The action man initially dated Kelly in 2007 and they reunited in 2012, only to split once more last year (13).
However, it appears the couple is now back on after the brunette beauty was spotted with Evans at a family karaoke night in his hometown of Sudbury, Massachusetts in late September (14).
An onlooker tells People.com, "It looked like a family night out. They were with a bunch of people, including Chris's family, and Chris and Minka sat in the back while other people in their group got up and did some karaoke."
Evans also reportedly invited Kelly over for lunch at his Los Angeles home on Tuesday (21Oct14).
Kelly previously dated newly-retired baseball ace Derek Jeter from 2008 to 2011, while Evans romanced actress Jessica Biel from 2004 to 2006 and was linked to British beauty Alice Eve late last year (13).
Tatum O'Neal's son has avoided jail after striking a plea deal with New York police over his summer (14) drugs bust. Kevin McEnroe, the actress' eldest child with retired tennis ace John McEnroe, was detained by cops in July (14) after he was allegedly caught making a drug transaction on a Manhattan street corner.
He was charged with felony possession with intent to sell, but prosecutors have since agreed to reduce the count to a misdemeanour, and it will be wiped from the 27 year old's record if he stays out of trouble for the next six months and completes a rehab programme at the Hazelden addiction treatment centre in the Big Apple.
The plea deal was approved by Judge Lisa Sokoloff in Manhattan Criminal Court on Tuesday (14Oct14), according to the New York Post.
