Francia Raisa has opened up about the kidney transplant that helped save Selena Gomez‘s life.
The Grown-ish actress sat down with Harry Connick Jr. for an interview that will air this upcoming Monday, February 19 on Harry and talked about giving her BFF her kidney.
“Well, so our surgery was in June, our fans didn’t find out about it until September,” Francia told Harry (via Just Jared). “We wanted that privacy. It was a big surgery. She felt bad about even having me do that because we are just friends, I am not her family or anything. Well, I am now. She has my blood.”
Final Red Carpet: The eye contact! The body language! No one would’ve predicted trouble was brewing for the Friends star and her husband of two years as they made a romantic vacation out of a trip to Paris for the Séries Mania Festival in April 2017.

Rebecca Bunch is guilty. The Crazy Ex-Girlfriend character spent the whole season three finale feeling guilty and apologizing for her past misdeeds, which are numerous. Those misdeeds included lying to her best friend Paula about Trent, Rebecca’s stalker, blackmailing Paula. Rebecca Bunch also pleaded guilty to attempted second-degree murder. Yep, that happened.
In “Nathaniel Is Irrelevant,” Rebecca (co-creator Rachel Bloom), went to extreme lengths to stop Trent (Paul Welsh) from harming Nathaniel (Scott Michael Foster). She pushed him off a balcony, y’all.
Nathaniel acted as her lawyer and advised her to plead not guilty by reason of insanity, she has her borderline personality disorder diagnosis, but upon seeing Paula (Donna Lynne Champlin) at her hearing, Rebecca decided once and for all to be held accountable for her actions. She’s done hiding.

According to Page Six, police are investigating Tom after he reportedly got into a confrontation inside a Palm Beach restaurant.
But according to a source, neither Tom nor his attorneys have been contacted by police about an investigation.

It’s good to be Paris Hilton.
The heiress and former Simple Life star was famously accused of being famous for “nothing” when she broke onto the scene in 2003, but in the 15 years since, she’s managed to take that “nothing” and turn it into an empire big enough to make most of us green with envy. And now that’s she’s engaged to fiance Chris Zylka, she’s got a sure-to-be glamorous wedding on the way, as well.
In honor of the “Stars Are Blind” singer’s 37th birthday, which just so happens to be today, let’s take a look at her insanely luxe world—by the numbers.
It took eight years for the original line-up of Destiny’s Child, which consisted of Knowles, Kelly Rowland, LaTavia Roberson and LaToya Luckett, to get from the moment when Bey and Roberson had a fateful meeting at an audition to the point where Knowles’ father Mathew—who would prove to be a controversial figure in the group’s history—managed them to the release of their debut album. Along the way, they would be known by different names (Gir’s Tyme was the first), see their ranks fluctuate in size (a harbinger of things to come, the group went from six to four, with three unlucky singers getting the boot before the group was even signed), and get dropped by one label before they even had a chance to release any material (Elektra Records’ loss was Columbia’s gain).
After a track recorded just prior to signing with Columbia, “Killing Time,” earned them a spot on the soundtrack to the 1997 film Men in Black, it was time to get to work on their debut album. A two-and-a-half year recording process lead to a body of work featuring production from Jermaine Dupri, Wyclef Jean, Dwyane Wiggins and more, with “No, No, No” acting as their lead single, released in November of 1997.
We don’t think we’re jinxing anything to say that Sope Aluko‘s latest movie is going to be a monster hit.
Even before raking in a record-breaking $25.2 million from Thursday previews, the biggest amount ever for a non-sequel film, Black Panther has been the talk of Hollywood and beyond for weeks. Director Ryan Coogler‘s take on the Marvel Comics character, starring Chadwick Bosemanas the titular superhero, has a 98 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes and analysts are predicting it could bring in around $160 million over the long President’s Day weekend.
Needless to say, Aluko is pretty psyched to be a part of the phenomenon.
Prosecutors filed an amended complaint and Hick’s lawyer filed a motion to continue the arraignment, as the actor’s lead attorney is tied up in a different trial. Hicks’ lawyer also filed a motion to allow the actor face-to-face contact with an “expert” while in custody and to allow use of an electronic device.
On Feb. 16 of that year, after a day-long rehab stint, the then-25-year-old singer—who remains one of the most popular in the world—shaved her own head at a Los Angeles salon. At the time, she was dealing with major personal turmoil, namely a divorce from Kevin Federline and a custody battle over their sons.
Spears had initially asked the salon owner, “I want you to buzz my hair off.” The woman said she tried to talk the singer out of it, and that Spears then grabbed a pair of electric clippers and performed the task herself. The incident was captured on camera by the paparazzi, while a local news station’s helicopter crew also shot footage of it from the air.
“When she shaved her head, it was quite literally a way for her to try to rid herself of her past,” a source told E! News in 2017. “She felt like everything in her life was dictated by someone else. In her mind, people were always trying to tell her what to do, how to act…They were constantly touching her, telling her what to wear, how to style her hair…She felt like a doll. Shaving her hair off was the ultimate rebellion. It was almost a cleansing experience. It was her way of sending a clear message that she was no longer willing to be controlled.”
Amid a career break following a 2017 tour that was cut short, Justin Bieber made his return to the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game on Friday after seven years.

Common was one of their coaches. Team Clippers won, 75-66.
