Ben Affleck Selling Plantation

If you'd like to live like Ben Affleck and have an extra $9M lying around, go for it. He's selling his 87-acre Georgia plantation on Hampton Island. It's accessible only with permission, which is fancy! It's 6,000 square feet, has four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms. There's verandas everywhere and beautiful river views.

Robin Williams Documentary Trailer 

There's a new HBO Documentary coming out about Robin Williams. The trailer hit the internet yesterday and it's pretty heartbreaking. This is a clip of Steve Martin talking about Robin. Also his son Zak. The documentary comes out July 16th. 


Kelly Clarkson Talks Health & Wellness 

Kelly Clarkson lost a bunch of weight recently, but she didn't exercise at all, which makes me so jealous. HA! She read a book called the Plant Paradox, about how to cook food, eat non-GMO, and organic. The best part? She didn't do it for looks - she did it for her health. Kelly was dealing with a thyroid issue and an autoimmune disease. She said her levels are back up, and she's not on medicine anymore because of the book. 


Rebecca Black Resurfaces on The Four

Taylor Swift Fans Unhappy 

Some Taylor Swift fans are REALLY unhappy right now. Some fans in the UK had their seats moved due to production changes, but apparently they're not getting their money back. I'm talking, $700 for two tickets and then were downgraded to tickets valued around $300. Who knows if it's true but they're making a stink on social media for sure. 


Justin Bieber Sued 

Justin Bieber is getting sued by a guy who got into a fight with Bieber in Cleveland after Game 3 of the 2016 NBA Finals. The video shows that the guy swung first and Bieber was responding -- but the guy claims he ended up in the hospital with a concussion because Bieber's team got involved too. He also claims that Justin was throwing out racial slurs too but he wouldn't name which ones. Scooter Braun says this is completely false and the guy has been trying to get money from Justin for the last several years. 


CNN's Anthony Bourdain Commits Suicide 

CNN's Anthony Bourdain, the chef and TV personality, committed suicide at the age of 61. He was in France shooting an episode of his TV show. A lot of celebrities are reacting. Chrissy Teigen: "One of my idols. Unapologetic, passionate and one of the best storytellers on the planet. Thank you for making food so exciting. And always standing up for everything right… Be at peace now." Patton Oswalt: "I've brushed up against this darkness and I know it's a tempting exit but REACH OUT to ANYONE. Stay on this side of it -- in in the light and warmth. Where you get to try again, every day." Gordon Ramsay: "Stunned and saddened by the loss of Anthony Bourdain. He brought the world into our homes and inspired so many people to explore cultures and cities through their food. Remember that help is a phone call away."
