Patti Murin, who plays Princess Anna in the Broadway musical Frozen, opened up about her mental health struggles after canceling a performance.
The 37-year-old actress, previously known for her role on the TV series Chicago Med, had pulled out of Tuesday’s theater show. On Wednesday, she explained why.
“So last night I called out of the show because I had a massive anxiety attack in the afternoon,” she wrote on Instagram. “It had been building up for a while, and while the past month has been incredible, all of the ups and downs and stress and excitement really takes a toll on my mental health.”
“I’ve learned that these situations aren’t something to ‘deal with’ or ‘push through,'” she continued. “Anxiety and depression are real diseases that affect so many of us. It requires a lot of rest and self care to heal every time it becomes more than I can handle in my daily life. While I hate missing the show for any reason at all, Disney has been nothing but supportive of me as I navigate my life and work, and I’m so grateful to them.”
She added, “Just remember that you’re not alone, your feelings are real, and this is not your fault. Even Disney princesses are terrified sometimes.”
Tina Turner is rollin’ back into the spotlight!
The Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll made a rare public appearance at the the Aldwych Theatre in London on Tuesday for the opening of Tina: The Tina Turner Musical—a production based on the singer’s life. Turner, 78, walked the red carpet with her husband, Erwin Bach. The legendary artist wore a black blazer and pants for the occasion and accessorized her look with lace gloves.
Even though Turner has attended a few public events over the years, she hasn’t officially walked a red carpet in half a decade. Her last red carpet appearance was in 2013, making last night’s appearance even more special.
It’s been just about a week since Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson welcomed their first child together, True Thompson.
Khloe gave birth to their baby girl on Thursday, April 12 at a Cleveland hospital with Kris Jenner, Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian and BFF Malika Haqq by her side.
The baby’s arrival followed shortly after an alleged cheating scandal involving Tristan was reported. Amid all of the cheating reports, Tristan returned to the basketball court for the Cleveland Cavaliers’ last season game on April 11. After the game, Tristan made it to the hospital for the baby’s birth.
So what’s the status of Khloe and Tristan’s relationship today?
The end of Carrie Mathison’s story is near.
During a wide-ranging interview with Howard Stern on his Sirius XM show on Wednesday, Claire Danes—who also revealed to the world that she is pregnant with her and husband Hugh Dancy‘s second child—admitted that the already-ordered eighth season of her Showtime series Homeland will also serve as the espionage thriller’s last.
“Yeah, that’s it,” she said when Stern brought up the show’s long-rumored final season, adding that she’s feeling “really conflicted” over the prospect of the show ending. “I mean, I’ll be ready. She’s a lot, this Carrie-freakin-Mathison. I mean, she’s under constant duress. It’s a workout, so I’ll be ready for a reprieve from that. But, you know, I’ve never done anything for this long. I mean, I’ve been married for as long, maybe a year longer.”
Who wore it better?
Jennifer Garner and Lenny Kravitz are currently in a scarf battle, unbeknownst to them. On Tuesday, the day of her 46th birthday, Garner was spotted out and about with a pal in Los Angeles. For the occasion, the 13 Going on 30 actress wrapped herself in an extremely oversized scarf to keep warm.
Garner’s birthday scarf sighting is very reminiscent of Kravitz’s iconic scarf moment from years ago. On Nov. 25, 2012, Kravitz was photographed walking around chilly New York City wearing a large scarf around his neck. The scarf was so large that it could’ve actually doubled as a blanket.
Cardi B ain’t sorry she’s coming for Beyoncé‘s throne.
Fresh off the release of her debut album Invasion of Privacy, a pregnancy reveal and one twerk-tastic Coachella performance, Cardi B is still finding ways to outdo herself. This time around, the rapper’s made music history by smashing two of Queen Bey’s Guinness World Records.
Cardi B now holds the titles for most simultaneous Billboard Hot 100 entries by a female and most simultaneous Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Top 10 entries by a female.
Following the release of Lemonade in 2016, Beyoncé previously held the title with 12 tracks charting at the same time. Cardi beats her by just one.
TV’s oldest and most dysfunctional family is about to return for their last hurrah.
The final season of The Originals premieres tonight, featuring a major time jump (more on that later) and a whole bunch of problems brewing in the French Quarter (what’s new?) as the Mikaelsons have been forced apart for the past eight years due to some seriously dark magic. We’ve seen the first three episodes and we can tell you that they might be the show’s three best episodes ever, but we thought it might be more helpful to get on the phone with someone who’s seen every episode and knows exactly how all of this is about to end.
Executive producer Julie Plec has shepherded the Mikaelson family throughout their time on The Vampire Diaries and now all the way through The Originals, and she says it “actually wasn’t hard” to find an ending to this epic, five-season/thousand-year-long story.
Looks like Victoria Beckham‘s in Stefano Gabbana‘s Burn Book!
The Italian designer, who is best known as one half of fashion duo Dolce & Gabbana, isn’t hiding his dislike for former friend, the Spice Girl-turned-designer.
Yesterday Vogue Brasil Instagramed an image of Beckham from a September 2016 Vogue shoot in honor of the Brit’s 44th birthday. While fans aplenty flocked to the social media page to give their well wishes to the bday girl, Gabbana made his feelings clear by commenting on the mag’s caption with three thumb’s down emojis.
Fans (and CommentsByCelebs) were quick to notice the simple but effective diss and many called out or noted the designer’s dig in the comments section.
Do couples who coordinate together stay together?
This year has been full of celebrity splits, divorces and alleged cheating scandals. Does love ever triumph? Someone send us a sign! Well, there’s no better way to show a united front than to wear matching clothes. To welcome the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his wife, Akie Abe, Donald Trump wore his uniform of a navy suit and white button-up Wednesday in Palm Beach, Fla. The president also wore a diagonally striped tie, visibly coordinating with Melania Trump, who wore a $2,990 Carolina Herrera cap-sleeved, striped dress and white Christian Louboutin pumps. The couple held hands while walking across the private Mar-a-Lago club grounds.
Despite rumors of a rocky relationship, the pair looked strong and stylish, thanks to their matching ensembles.
“To be able to revisit a role at this point in my life, the same character and to bring all of this new information I have as an actor and a person to the same role is such a treat. And I don’t think many people have the opportunity to do that and I feel so grateful for it.”
Right now March’s appearance is just a one-off, but would she return to the special victims unit?
History has been made in a galaxy far, far away.
The Star Wars universe has taken a major step towards diversification by hiring its first ever black female director. A Wrinkle in Time director, Ava DuVernay, announced on her Twitter account that the upcoming Episode IX film’s director and executive producer, J.J. Abrams, hired Victoria Mahoney as his second unit director for the film. This would make Mahoney the first woman of color to serve as a director in any of the Star Wars films.
“Happy to share this historic news,” DuVernay wrote on Twitter. “A black woman directing stories in a galaxy far, far away. First unit director #JJAbrams. Second unit director @VictoriaMahoney. #StarWarsE9 #StarWars.”
While Cheryl had her own Carrie moment when she confronted her actual mother covered in blood, Midge was supposed to make her debut as Carrie, but then the curtains opened and a murdered Midge was displayed alongside an announcement that the Black Hood has returned.
To make sense of this and what comes next, we got on the phone with creator Roberto Aguirre Sacasa. Then, the Black Hood broke our recorder, and we had to email him instead, but he did still offer a few bits of insight on tonight’s musical extravaganza and its bloody ending.

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream with Kourt and her kids!
Kourtney Kardashian celebrated her 39th birthday this afternoon with a trip to the swanky spot Taverna Tony in Malibu, Calif. The reality star enjoyed some special time with her three children Mason, Penelope and Reign Disick—and a heaping plate of ice cream. The health conscious personality, known for her clean eating, may actually be breaking from her streamlined diet for her birthday!
An eyewitness tells E! News, “They had a nice table outside on the patio and enjoyed a casual lunch. The restaurant took great care of Kourtney and brought over lots of Greek food for the kids to try.”
The insider says, “They were dipping their bread in hummus and loved it. For dessert, they let the kids help make a dessert with pastries, ice cream, whipped cream and fruit. Penelope carried out their creation from the kitchen with Tony, the owner of the restaurant, and they all sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to Kourtney. They left with lots of leftovers and gifts from the restaurant.”
