    "Oh, sorry, darling, I got engaged," Williams shared. "I have had a lot of good things happen — I turned 50 when we were in rehearsal on Broadway, I just got engaged a couple of weeks ago. It has been a lot of blessings on this trip."

    She also referred to the Buffalo native as "just a nice, regular, gorgeous guy," noting at the time that he was her Valentine this year.

    Jeremy Blacklow at Yahoo Celebrity 2 mths ago

    Madea's about to be a mommy daddy. Tyler Perry and his off-on girlfriend, Gelila Bekele, are expecting their first child, a source close to the actor confirms to Yahoo.

    Perry shared the news with a close group of friends at his 45th birthday party two weekends ago in Atlanta, says the insider, who was in attendance.

    "He is thrilled and couldn't be happier," the source says.

The actor, who is best known for his Madea movies but will soon be starring in Gone Girl , is known for not only being a good guy, but he's also one of the wealthiest, with a net worth estimated at $400 million.

    "I know I would be a great father," Perry said on a 2013 episode of The Steve Harvey Show . "I don't want to work this hard. I don't want to have all of this and not leave it to my children."

    Perry has spoken repeatedly about being abused by his own father and not having a positive male influence in his life.

    Perry also said he was sexually abused by four other adults (three men and a woman) before the age of 10.

  • Selfies, Certifications, and Suspicions: The Latest on Joan Rivers's Doctor and Ongoing Death Investigation

    Jeremy Blacklow at Yahoo Celebrity 3 mths ago

    "Investigators believe that Rivers's vocal cords began to swell during the allegedly unauthorized biopsy, cutting off the flow of oxygen to her lungs, which led to cardiac arrest on the morning of Aug. 29," a source told CNN. Rivers was placed in a medically induced coma and eventually died Sept. 4 at age 81 after being taken off life support. TV host Wendy Williams, who told her audience on Wednesday that Korovin has also treated her, revealed to The Insider With Yahoo that Korovin is currently in hiding. Williams also suggested that "maybe [Korovin] took the selfie because she thinks it's something that would have made Joan laugh." Sources close to Korovin told TMZ on Thursday that the doctor claims CNN's source is lying and that she neither performed a biopsy on Joan, nor took a selfie while Joan was under anesthesia. Both the New York Police Department and the New York State Department of Health are looking into the circumstances surrounding Rivers's death, but neither has issued a formal comment about the status of their investigations. Meanwhile, Yorkville Endoscopy's gastroenterologist and medical director, Dr. Lawrence Cohen, who performed Joan's scheduled endoscopy, stepped down from his post last Friday.

  • Is Hilary Duff Weirded-Out by Aaron Carter's Continued Declarations of Love?

    Jeremy Blacklow at Yahoo Celebrity 3 mths ago

    Carter, the younger brother of Backstreet Boy Nick Carter, and Duff, then a Disney darling starring in Lizzie McGuire , began dating in 2000 — when both were just 13 — and continued on and off until 2003. In the "off" periods Aaron courted Lindsay Lohan, which lead to a slew of teenage gossip drama.

    "I started dating Hilary [Duff] on my 13th birthday," he told host CNBC back in 2005. "I was dating her for like a year-and-a-half and then I just got a little bored so I went and I started getting to know Lindsay, dating Lindsay."

    Meanwhile, Hilary moved on. She married former NHL player Mike Comrie, 33, in 2010, and they have one son together, Luca Cruz Comrie, 2.

    In 2012, Aaron spoke with Fox News about Hilary’s marriage, her pregnancy news, and his regret over losing her. "I'm really happy for her that she's in a successful relationship and that she's going to have a baby," he said. "Sometimes I think to myself, maybe that could have been me but it is what it is."

    @aaroncarter are you talking about Hilary?

    " Yeah, don't know each other… so… yeah."

  • Investigations, Memorials, Controversy: The Latest on Joan Rivers

    Jeremy Blacklow at Yahoo Celebrity 3 mths ago

    The investigation: Late Tuesday, the New York Daily News reported that what was supposed to be a routine procedure at Yorkville Endoscopy did not go as originally planned. A medical source tells the newspaper that an unplanned, last-minute biopsy was performed on her vocal cords, and that procedure was responsible for a vocal cord seizure that cut off Rivers's air supply. The newspaper suggests that if the biopsy was performed in a hospital, where such procedures are typically done, Rivers would likely have survived. 

    A representative for the Rivers family declined to comment on the story. A spokeswoman for Yorkville Endoscopy wouldn't comment on the specific situation due to patient confidentiality laws, but they did provide an extensive statement to The Insider with Yahoo that clarified that a vocal chord biopsy is not a procedure that has ever been performed before at their clinic.

    "She was an amazing woman and it was an appropriate send-off."

  • Nick Jonas Strips for Fans at NYC Gay Clubs

    Jeremy Blacklow at Yahoo Celebrity 3 mths ago

    Nick Jonas wasn't kidding when he said he loves his gay fans.

    The youngest of the Jonas Brothers, who's been focusing on a solo music career these days, showed up to promote his new song, "Jealous," at club BPM's Gay College Tuesdays night in New York City.

    After his performance, Nick was encouraged by the crowd to strip. Though the fresh-faced pop star didn't take it all off, he played along and did more of a striptease, unbuttoning his shirt while moving seductively to the delight of clubgoers.

    The hunky singer has been bulking up lately for his role in the new martial arts-themed original series Kingdom (which premieres Oct. 8 on Audience Network). He might as well put those guns and toned abs to good use after all!

    Eager fans captured some video of Nick inside the club hanging out before his performance. He mingled with many of them throughout the night.

    I love my gay fans

  • Sara Gilbert Announces She's Pregnant on 'Talk' Premiere

    Jeremy Blacklow at Yahoo Celebrity 3 mths ago

    The 39-year-old actress and talk-show host announced that she's pregnant on Tuesday on the Season 5 premiere of The Talk.

    The funniest part of her announcement, though, was how it came about — in the form of Gilbert refusing to take on a dare on the show.

    In a segment called "Face Your Fears," in which each of the five hosts are asked to do exactly that, Gilbert offered a pretty darn good excuse on why she couldn't be smashed between two nail-studded boards in a spiked Sara sandwich.

    Had the dare taken place, it would've looked like this:

    Her co-hosts couldn't contain their excitement — either on air, or on social media.

    Sara's pregnant !!!! There's a new 'Talk' baby on the way! @THEsaragilbert #TheTalk

    Congrats to Sara and Linda! #TheTalk

  • J.Law & Order: Hacked Celeb Pics Won't Be Exhibited After All!

    Jeremy Blacklow at Yahoo Celebrity 3 mths ago

    A Florida gallery has pulled the plug on the planned art exhibit by the artist XVALA that was to feature the hacked nude photos of celebrities including Jennifer Lawrence, Kirsten Dunst, Kate Upton, and many other leading Hollywood ladies.

    The St. Petersburg-based Cory Allen Contemporary Art gallery made headlines last week when it announced it would launch the so-called "No Delete" collection featuring the salacious stolen images, prompting a flood of negative press and criticism.

    "It was inspiring to see people take action through a petition, signing their name and not just commenting on a thread," said Cory Allen. 

    "Copyright violation. You can't do that. The wrath of Jennifer Lawrence's attorneys is going to come down on them."
