Kate Hudson: Tom Cruise Crashed My Party By Scaling a Gate



Kate Hudson and her brother Oliver were on Thursday’s episode of Ellen to promote their podcast “Sibling Revelry.” They were reminiscing about some of the best parties they’ve thrown at their parents house. The siblings used to throw insane parties when their parents (Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell) were gone, and one a bit more insane when hundreds of people showed up. Kate, a self-professed control freak became bouncer for the party, standing at the door and vetting guests. She remembered:

“I’m standing at the door making sure that people who aren’t supposed to be at the party aren’t coming in — there’s like 400 people at my parent’s house. I’m kind of freaking out a little and I see someone scaling, literally scaling, an eight-foot gate at my parents’ house. They come off and they do a back handspring and pose and I’m about to yell at this guy, and it’s Tom Cruise.”

Kate said she went over to greet Tom, who wasn’t invited but decided to come by because he “heard there was a party.”

If the party happened when Kate was a teen or early 20's, this would have occurred during the mid to late 90s. For what it's worth, Tom Cruise wasn't a complete stranger to the family- he was close to Kurt and Goldie during the 80s and 90s, and he starred with Kurt in 2001's Vanilla Sky.

Who would be your prime celebrity party crasher?

Freddie Prinze Jr. On Why His 20 Year Relationship with Sarah Michelle Gellar Works




  • When asked what's their key to a happy marriage, he says "There’s no keys. There’s no rules...I just believe in knowing who you are when you start a relationship. And if you don’t, then that relationship probably isn’t going to work."

  • He says it really helps that they're both private and they make each other laugh.

  • Freddie and Sarah also accept each other's hobbies. For example, she has known he plays video games and if that were a problem for her, they wouldn't be together. Likewise, he respects her love of reality television, and won't mock it.

  • Respecting your partner's likes is big: "If you love and respect someone, what brings them joy should make you happy, whether you’re involved with it or not. So, let your girls watch what they want to watch. Let your dudes watch what they want to watch. Don’t give them a hard time. And if you find yourself in one of those relationships, maybe it’s time to have a conversation."

  • Freddie and Sarah have no plans to work together again but he'll never say never.

Lena Waithe is voicing Disney's first openly-LGBTQ animated character in "Onward"



In Onward, Lena Waithe voices the cyclops Officer Specter, who appears in a scene where she talks to another character about how “My girlfriend’s daughter got me pulling my hair out.”

When asked about the scene, Onward producer Kori Rae said “It just kind of happened. The scene, when we wrote it, was kind of fitting and it opens up the world a little bit, and that’s what we wanted.” Director Dan Scanlon added that “It’s a modern fantasy world and we want to represent the modern world.”

Dan DiDio out at DC Comics


Big comic books news: Dan DiDio is no long with DC Comics as of today. It's unknown whether he quit or was fired. Dan joined the company in 2002 as VP of Editorial before becoming the VP Executive Editor in 2004. Since 2010 he has been Co-Publisher along with Jim Lee. As of now Lee will remain as sole Publisher.

DiDio has been a big name at the company, as he was a major talking head and helped spearhead the year-long series 52, The New 52 reboot in 2011, as well as the Rebirth relaunch in 2016. He's also the man behind the upcoming Generations miniseries that is set to explore the history of the DC Universe, all before the yet-to-be-announced and supposed relaunch called "5G." Whether the relaunch still happens as planned - or at all - is unknown.

DiDio hasn't been a very well liked figure in the comic community and is noted for his dislike of characters like Dick Grayson and Wally West. DiDio also caused an uproar several years ago when he tossed out the idea of Batwoman getting married and stated superheroes shouldn't have happy private lives.

Katie Hill talks about resigning from Congress after her photos were leaked

More clips and summary of conversation [Spoiler (click to open)]


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Ln-xlLzDK8



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=htjdYmIntqI

Plays clip. Speech Katie Hill gave on her last day in Congress. Joy covers her career and background, and the reason behind decision to step down. Photos were taken without her knowledge or consent, then released again without consent. Talks about how she felt when all this happened. She started hearing rumblings, was naïve to think a publication would publish them, and she didn’t think her ex-husband would do that to her. She’d been with ex-husband since she was 16 and he was 20. He did this out of revenge. She left just before the election, which was how important it was for her to get out. He had a meltdown, told her and others, that if she left – then he would ruin her. She went back to him (because reasons of typical victims). Then when she left again, he made good on his promise. KH says her relationship was wrong, the ménage à trois. Sunny reads legal note, re/abuse or wrongdoing. He filed for petition, so she hasn’t filed anything due to Calif. being a no-fault state. As for amicable, she’s tried since day 1, without crazy attorney fees, but it’s been impossible and not at all amicable.

Meghan thinks revenge p0rn should be illegal. But calls her out for sleeping with her staff member. KH says she was in the middle of a tumultuous relationship, and a new relationship formed that shouldn’t have. KH says she doesn’t regret stepping down because she knew what she did was wrong. Ana wonders why KH stepped down and was there an ethics investigation. KH says it’s very slow and very invasive. When you leave it stops. It’s not why she resigned, but it took the pressure off her staff because she resigned, due to the investigation ending. It was creating a domino effect for her colleagues that KH didn’t want to happen. Pelosi advised her not to step down. Usually when something like that happens, you ride it out and let the voters decide.

KH had wondered if it would’ve blown up as much if she weren’t bi-sexual. Explains more about having to discuss her sexual identity even with people in the LGBT community. Next chapter, her experience shouldn’t deter other young women from running. Started PAC called Her Time with $1M. typically those who wouldn’t be the most common candidates. It’s this type of systemic change that help us progress in a way that we should.

“Kendall, Gigi, Cara Delevingne. But here’s the thing: let’s go back to it though. I know Kendall the best. I’ve spent the most time with Kendall, you know, she’s a good friend of ours. I haven’t spent a lot of time with Gigi and I haven’t spent a lot of time with Cara so I have nothing against those people. It’s just I have a better relationship [with Kendall]. It’s not like I’m like ugh screw Cara, screw her, you know what I mean? OK."

Giorgio Armani sparked controversy today, blasting fellow designers after his Emporio Armani show

Mr. Armani had something to say about current fashion after today's Armani show in Milan

“I am tired of hearing about trends. They are nothing. I want to improve the woman who lives now. There’s all this musing about the past as a trend, but I don’t agree with it at all. So please stop writing about trends. Write about what [Alessandro] Michele did at Gucci, what Miuccia Prada did at Prada and what I am doing, but let’s not play this game. You should get to the bottom of it, what is the thinking behind what we do. Stop being dominated by raving about the Nineties [as an example]. I am at a moment when I can say what I think."
