Gisele Bündchen denies giving Tom Brady an ultimatum before their divorce
Gisele Bündchen would like to clarify her marriage to Tom Brady had way bigger problems than that whole unretirement business. Speaking to Vanity Fair, the model indicated that she and Brady were growing apart even before he reversed his decision to retire from football last year, clarifying that this drama wasn't the reason for their split. A marriage falling apart, she noted, "takes years to happen," and "what's been said is one piece of a much bigger puzzle." Bündchen also denied claims that she gave Brady a retirement ultimatum and demanded he quit football or she would leave him, calling this "very hurtful" allegation "the craziest thing I've ever heard," and she slammed the tabloids for making her seem like "somebody who is against football." Later, Bündchen discussed investing in the collapsed cryptocurrency exchange FTX, telling Vanity Fair, "It's just … terrible. I'm so sorry for all of us that this happened." Incidentally, that is also our review of 80 for Brady.
Sofia Coppola's daughter says she was grounded 'because I tried to charter a helicopter'
Sofia Coppola's daughter and her helicopter have both been grounded. Director Sofia Coppola and musician Thomas Mars' 16-year-old daughter, Romy, has gone viral after saying (joking?) in a truly incredible TikTok that she was grounded "because I tried to charter a helicopter from New York to Maryland on my dad's credit card because I wanted to have dinner with my camp friend." While making pasta sauce, she also admitted she doesn't "know the difference between a garlic and an onion" before noting that her parents' "biggest rule" is that she's "not allowed to have any public social media accounts because they don't want me to be a nepotism kid." As she said this, Romy held up her father's Grammy. But "TikTok is not gonna make me famous, so it doesn't really matter," she insisted — in a video that has since amassed tens of millions of views and is perhaps her family's greatest filmmaking accomplishment yet.
'American Idol' contestant slams Katy Perry for 'mom shaming'
You're gonna hear her roar. An American Idol contestant is calling out judge Katy Perry for allegedly "mom shaming" her on the show. At the start of Sarah Beth's audition this season, Perry expressed her utter shock that the 25-year-old has three kids, physically getting out of her seat in surprise. "If Katy lays on the table, I think I'm gonna pass out," Beth said, leading Perry to joke, "Honey, you've been laying on the table too much." So Beth — who ended up making it through to Hollywood after Perry gave her a reluctant "yes" — took to TikTok to slam Perry for making this joke that "wasn't super kind," calling the moment "embarrassing" and "hurtful." She added that "women supporting and uplifting other women is so cool," and "mom shaming is super lame," as "nobody deserves to feel crappy about" having children. Baby, now they've got bad blood.
Aaron Sorkin reveals he had a stroke last year
Aaron Sorkin has made some lifestyle changes after a scary wake-up call. The Oscar-winning screenwriter and creator of The West Wing revealed to The New York Times he was "concerned that I was never going to be able to write again" after having a stroke last November. According to Sorkin, his blood pressure was so high that a doctor told him that "you're supposed to be dead." After the stroke, he slurred his words and had difficulty typing for about a month, and he couldn't sign his name until recently. Describing this as a "wake-up call," Sorkin said the incident inspired him to quit smoking, improve his diet, and start working out twice a day, as he realized he was wrong to think he "was one of those people who could eat whatever he wanted, smoke as much as he wanted'' without being affected. But he added that if his story can "get one person to stop smoking then it'll be helpful."
Jameela Jamil's worst date involved a guy breaking 'all of his front teeth'
Jameela Jamil's mission to get banned from all of America's top talk shows is going well. The Good Place star appeared on Today to promote her new podcast Bad Dates, which sees her interview celebrities about their dating nightmares. So Jamil shared her own worst date story, and it didn't disappoint. "I had a man take several steps into my apartment, in what was supposed to be my first ever booty call," she recalled. "He collapsed three steps in. He broke all of his front teeth, they flew across my apartment. He split his chin open and collapsed, and it's because he had misused a drug that excites a man's sausage." Jamil, who suggested "you're never having me back" because of that comment, proceeded to go on The View and describe herself as a "serial erection killer" before being censored multiple times — leading the show's producer to wonder if he's in the bad place.
