Before Jennifer Lopez, Alex Rodriguez was dating Anne Wojcicki. Anne is the CEO of the genetics firm 23andMe. The two split in late 2016 after a year and a half of dating. Well. Anne’s mother Esther had some not-so-nice things to say about her daughter’s ex in a recent interview. Esther didn’t mince words saying, “He had no academic background. We couldn’t have an intellectual conversation about anything. His main interest in life was something that none of us had ever focused on, which was baseball.” She continued, “He could park himself in front of a TV and watch baseball for 10 hours a day. He wasn’t even sure he wanted to go on the yacht with Anne because the TV might not be working.” Esther did have some nice things to say about A-Rod. “I liked A-Rod, he was a very nice man. He came from a Hispanic family. We liked them, they were very sweet,”
Selena Gomez is worried The Weeknd will do a tell-all interview about their relationship.

When Kim Kardashian West and husband Kanye West decided to have a third baby via a surrogate to avoid the health complications she had with her first two pregnancies, they knew there would be logistical complications. So, the pair made the bold decision to withhold their identities from their surrogate mom. Kim was worried that whoever was carrying her baby might not be a fan of herself or her husband and she didn’t want that to affect anything. However, her need to have a relationship with her outweighed any concerns. Luckily the surrogate was a fan, not a super fan, but she watched the show and so she understands Kim’s pregnancy struggles.
Speaking of Kim, she has reportedly parted ways with her long-time assistant and publicist. She reportedly fired Stephanie Shepherd, her assistant and the COO of her company Kardashian West Brands and Ina Treciokas, her long-time publicist.
Kardashian West gave Shepherd the boot, reportedly dissatisfied with her attempt to transition into a larger role at KKW.
According to my source, Kim Kardashian West is opting for a more “political” publicist, raising questions once again about whether her husband is planning a 2020 run for The White House.
Paris Hilton wants everybody to know that she and Britney Spears were taking selfies long before Instagram and Twitter existed.
