Leslie Grace speaks out about shock 'Batgirl' cancellation

DC's would-be Batgirl is showing grace after Warner Bros. Discovery clipped her wings. Leslie Grace, who played the title character in a nearly completed Batgirl movie we'll never see, has spoken out about the film's shock cancellation. "I feel blessed to have worked among absolute greats and forged relationships for a lifetime in the process," she wrote on Instagram, thanking Batgirl fans "for the love and belief" and for "allowing me to take on the cape and become, as Babs said best, 'my own damn hero!'" Grace also shared a now-heartbreaking video showing her excitedly putting on the costume. Just weeks ago, she had posted a celebratory photo of herself with Supergirl actress Sasha Calle, whose movie is also reportedly unlikely to happen in the wake of the WarnerMedia-Discovery merger. Meanwhile, Deadline reported that canceling Batgirl will only save the company around $20 million "at the most," or around three times less than the cost of the Snyder Cut. Make it make sense!

Kim Kardashian brags about her strong bones, lower body fat

Kim Kardashian is keeping us up to date on her bone density, whether we like it or not. The Skims founder strangely took to Instagram to share the results from a body scan she underwent inside a van, which showed that "my bones [are] stronger than 93-97 percent" of people. "Wow!" she says, before zooming in on information about her body fat. "A year ago my body fat percentage was 25 percent, and now it is 18.8 percent," she announces, bragging this is "athlete category." Kardashian previously showed a photo of herself getting a "painful" laser treatment to tighten her stomach — you know, just in case any of her followers were feeling even slightly okay about their own bodies today. Earlier this year, Kardashian sparked backlash for dramatically losing 16 pounds in three weeks to fit into her Marilyn Monroe dress at the Met Gala, but she insisted she "didn't do anything unhealthy." Watch out, Judy Garland: she's coming for your wardrobe next.

Chrissy Teigen is pregnant

Let's all enjoy this moment of Chrissy Teigen being in the news for reasons other than everyone yelling at her while we can. The model has announced she and husband John Legend are expecting their third child together, almost two years after their tragic pregnancy loss. "The last few years have been a blur of emotions to say the least, but joy has filled our home and hearts again," Teigen said on Instagram. "1 billion shots later (in the leg lately, as u can see!) we have another on the way." In 2020, Teigen shared the heartbreaking news that she suffered a miscarriage. She and Legend were expecting a son together, Jack. While sharing a "thirst trap" selfie showing off her baby bump, Teigen said she was previously "just too nervous" to announce that she's pregnant again. But "so far," she says, "everything is perfect and beautiful and I'm feeling hopeful and amazing."

Jennifer Coolidge slept with 'like 200 people' thanks to 'American Pie'

In 50 years, this will be American Pie's greatest cultural legacy: helping Jennifer Coolidge get some serious action. The White Lotus star revealed the sexy fallout from her role as a "MILF" in the 1999 comedy in an interview with Variety. "I got a lot of play of being a MILF, and I got a lot of sexual action from American Pie," she said. Coolidge famously played Stifler's extremely attractive mom in the film, and she says there were "so many benefits" that came from the project — including the fact that it really spiced up her sex life. "I mean, there would be like 200 people that I would never have slept with," she said. You know what? Good for her. On the flip side, we're going to assume her role in The Emoji Movie did not do quite as much to boost those numbers.

Emily Ratajkowski's alleged cheater husband begs her to take him back

What guy would be dumb enough to cheat on Emily Ratajkowski? Allegedly, this one. The model's husband, Sebastian Bear-McClard, is "begging her to give him another chance" amid reports he cheated on her, a source told Page Six. Last month, Page Six reported Ratajkowski is set to divorce Bear-McClard because he's a "serial cheater" and a "dog" — and a source now tells the outlet she has no plans to take him back. "She did her own digging and discovered even more s--t he did behind her back," the source said. Ratajkowski hasn't commented on the reports — except, well, she pretty much did by "liking" a bunch of tweets about the drama, including ones that read "can't believe that little b---h cheated on emrata," "emrata finally free from that man just proves that god is actually very real," and "i really think emrata should date women cuz at this point men are s--t." But hey, that could mean anything.
