Julianne Hough is really excited that she married NHL star Brooks Laich this summer. “This is a different chapter. I’m 29, and I feel like I’m sort of coming into my own being married. I feel this maturity that has kind of just happened, and a peace and a direction that I want to go towards.” She continues, “All my friends are like, ‘I think you’re the most excited person to be married ever!’ [Because] I truly like when people ask me that question. I just light up and I’m so happy. There’s people [that] ask if it’s different, and it really is… Obviously, our day-to-day life is similar, but just the deep amount and sense of love that you have for this person and just feeling totally one is so much more grand than I ever imagined.” Julianne goes on to declare, “I feel sexier. I feel all these different things that you would think that’s how you feel when you’re single. You own yourself, but I think I feel all of those things 10 times more.”
Chrissy Teigen has revealed that she and husband John Legend plan to expand their family very soon via frozen embryo transfer. Chrissy says they originally harvested 20 embryos–three of which were deemed normal after being genetically tested. “The first little girl didn’t work, and then the second is Luna,” Chrissy explains. The third embryo, which is male, will be implanted in her womb in the coming months.
Iron Chef Gauntlet contestant Jason Dady says that Mario Lopez tried to get a free meal at his San Antonio restaurant Range in exchange for an Instagram post about the place. He alleges that Mario (or Mario’s rep) declared, “We’ll put you on the map.” When Jason declined, the person hung up immediately. Jason initially shared a vague Facebook post about the incident, but then offered to name and shame the celeb if his post got 1,000 likes. Once it did, he shared an A.C. Slater gif. Meanwhile, Mario must have found somebody else to take him up on his offer, because he instead posted a photo of himself dining out at San Antonio establishment Mi Tierra. And while many mocked Mario, Uproxx has chastised Jason. “The fact is that Lopez was offering up something with a legit value. The man has 996 thousand followers on Instagram,” it points out. “Right now, Range has 568 followers on Instagram. Linking their account to that of a social media savvy dude like Slater is a smart move. Value per dollar it would have been way better than an ad.”

On yesterday’s episode of Ellen, Ellen DeGeneres and Oprah Winfrey visited a local grocery store together and wreaked havoc. Oprah admitted in the segment that she hadn’t been to a grocery store since Thanksgiving 2016, while Ellen said it’d been “years” for her. During their time in the produce aisle, Ellen held up both enormous and tiny cucumbers and asked Oprah which size was ideal. (Oprah dubbed them “too big” and “too small.”) Ellen also got on the loudspeaker to announce that Oprah was looking for dandruff and ointment for a mysterious ailment. She also surprised fellow shoppers by offering to pay for their groceries — using Oprah’s money, of course.

As for Kourtney, a source says, “She thinks this fling with Sofia is a little weird, but nothing shocks her anymore.”
Gabrielle Union reveals she’s “had eight or nine miscarriages” in her new memoir We’re Going to Need More Wine. “For three years, my body has been a prisoner of trying to get pregnant,” the 44-year-old actress writes in an excerpt about her fertility struggles shared by People. “I’ve either been about to go into an IVF cycle, in the middle of an IVF cycle, or coming out of an IVF cycle.” Gabrielle goes on to explain that she didn’t see children in her future until she married NBA star Dwyane Wade and became a stepmom to his three sons. “For so many women… people feel very entitled to know, ‘Do you want kids?’” she notes. “A lot of people, especially people that have fertility issues, just say ‘no’ because that’s a lot easier than being honest about whatever is actually going on.”

Other country artists have spoken out after the tragic attack, including Aldean who encouraged Americans to “stop the hate.”
