Katie Holmes leaves her borough to smoke a cig and The Daily Mail is on it

Sometimes mama needs a break. Katie Holmes reportedly "[snuck] away to Brooklyn to smoke a cigarette miles away from daughter Suri," according to a headline published Tuesday in The Daily Mail. Holmes quit smoking 15 years ago when pregnant with Suri, though she's reportedly fallen back into the habit over the years. According to the report, Holmes "bundled up before taking a car from her home in Manhattan to a secluded spot to smoke a cigarette a borough away," which is definitely a big mood. And while The Daily Mail's report was unnecessarily scoldy, fans agreed that Holmes' actions were extremely relatable. "That is a single mom with a teenager who can be left alone for Mom to do whatever she needs for a short time," one Twitter user wrote. "Love it."

Shanna Moakler insists she hasn't commented on ex-husband Travis Barker's engagement

Shanna Moakler has commented on making no comment about her ex-husband Travis Barker's engagement to Kourtney Kardashian. Early Monday, hours after the news broke about the engagement, Moakler posted to her Instagram Stories that she was "temporarily closed for spiritual maintenance" and "before you ask why someone hates you, ask yourself why you give a f--k." Moakler also deleted the recent photos of her two children with Barker, 17-year-old Landon and 15-year-old Alabama, after they celebrated their father's news; Moakler notably has been estranged from her kids for a while now. Still, the former Miss Universe winner said there was nothing to see here despite all the activity: "PSA I haven't made a comment on anything going on in the world period," Moakler insisted in a statement. If you say so!

Alicia Silverstone keeps getting kicked off dating apps

Alicia Silverstone is not having a lot of luck with dating apps! Appearing on The Drew Barrymore Show, the actress admitted she's been banned twice from "one of the dating apps." "I put a fake profile [up] because I wasn't comfortable yet being me," Silverstone admitted. "And then I got kicked off, I got banned." Silverstone wasn't ready to call it quits, though, and eventually rejoined, pointing out that fellow celebs like Barrymore and Sharon Stone were on the app. "So I went on as myself, and it took a lot of courage to do it," she said. "And then I did it, and I had a date with someone planned, and the day I went in to find out about the date where we were meeting or whatever, I had been banned. Poor guy. I got kicked off as myself, too."

Paris Hilton speaks out about her 'severe PTSD' while pushing for youth treatment center reform

Paris Hilton delivered emotional remarks in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday about experiencing "trauma and severe PTSD" as she advocated for a bill to fight abuse in troubled youth treatment centers. Hilton has alleged she was subjected to abuse at youth facilities, and she spoke about her experiences during a press conference in support of a bill by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.). Hilton said she was sent to four facilities over two years starting when she was 16 because her parents were promised "tough love would fix me," but she said that while there, she was "strangled, slapped across the face, watched in the shower by male staff, called vulgar names, forced to take medication without a diagnosis, not given a proper education, thrown into solitary confinement in a room covered in scratch marks and smeared in blood, and so much more." The bill is soon set to be introduced in Congress, with Schiff saying the legislation aims to "break the cycle of trauma that has plagued these institutions for far too long."

Protesters clash over Dave Chappelle special

Hundreds of Netflix employees walked out of the company's headquarters on Wednesday in protest of Dave Chappelle's standup special The Closer, which has received heavy criticism for its jokes about the gay and trans communities. Counter-protesters also attended the protest, bringing signs that read "Jokes Are Funny" and "Netflix Don't Cancel Free Speech." "We are protesting this walkout. They have the right to do it, but we have the right to stand up for Dave Chappelle and his freedom of expression," one counter-protester, Gigi LaRoux, told Variety. Transparent creator Joey Soloway also appeared at the protest to support Netflix employees that walked out over the special. "Trans people are in the middle of a holocaust," Soloway argued, adding that "the line is simple: stop making things worse."
