Paris Hilton discussed plans for her upcoming wedding while appearing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. She will be marrying her fiancé Carter Reum, a venture capitalist. They got engaged in February on Hilton’s 40th birthday as the pair was celebrating on a private island. Fallon, on Tuesday, asked Hilton if she will be utilizing her DJ skills during the wedding. “I’ll definitely get a DJ because it’s too much. We’ll have a band as well. It’s going to be like a three-day affair,” Hilton said. “Lots of dresses. Probably 10. I love outfit changes,” she continued before stating that Reum will not be taking part in outfit changes. Hilton will also be filming her wedding for a documentary series that is coming to Peacock. “I just feel like for my documentary This is Paris, it ended in a way in which, it was amazing but I just feel like I want my fans to see that I found my Prince Charming and my happy fairy-tale ending,” she said. She recently launched her new cooking series on Netflix titled Cooking with Paris.
********We still haven’t gotten over “One Night in Paris!!!”
*****She’ll never go away!!! As Bogart said in “Casablanca,” “We’ll always have Paris!!”
******She was named after the location where she was conceived (true)!! Just like our brother, “Backseat!!!”
Blake Shelton made an appearance on “The Kelly Clarkson Show” recently and filmed a segment in which he paired up with his fellow “The Voice” alum Nick Jonas to play against Kelly Clarkson and John Legend for a game called “Throw Me a Line.” For the game, a disembodied voice would say a line from the middle of a popular song and the singers would have to buzz in and sing the title of the song. Clarkson and Legend quickly swept the floor with Shelton’s team, racking up points for knowing Garth Brooks’ “Friends in Low Places” and Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody.” The tables seemed to turn when Jonas successfully recognized “ABC” by the Jackson 5 and Shelton correctly named “Footloose” by Kenny Loggins. However, the announcer said he’d share one more song and began to read the lyrics of “Hollaback Girl” by Stefani, Shelton’s wife. Blake was unable to beat Clarkson to the buzzer, allowing the talk show hostess to win the game when she correctly named the song. “Hollaback Girl” is arguably one of Stefani’s more famous songs, though the two have mentioned in interviews that they weren’t overly familiar with one another’s music before striking up a romance. They have now recorded a number of songs together.
**********To be fair, it’s hard to hear her music when her legs are wrapped around your head!!
*******And “Hollaback Girl” sounds a lot like “Hella Good” and “Hey Baby!!!”
*******When he got home, she made him wait a full five seconds before they had sex!!!
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were photographed sharing a passionate kiss outside of Affleck’s Los Angeles home after spending the day together to celebrate his 49th birthday, which was Sunday. They then reached for each other longingly as they bade adieu — all while Lopez’s assistant stood by and waited. It appeared to be the same woman who was forced to watch Lopez and Alex Rodriguez pack on the PDA in the Dominican Republic in March after they announced they were working on their relationship. Meanwhile, Arod seems to be taking the high road following his and Lopez’s breakup, as he said in an interview this week that their relationship was “incredible.” Lopez, however, unfollowed Rodriguez on Instagram and erased all of their photos together.
*****Nice closed-mouth kisses!! (have you noticed??) It’s a FAKE RELATIONSHIP!!
******Ben doesn’t want to stick his tongue down her throat!! He can taste what A Rod had for lunch!!
******The only real thing about this relationship is J Lo’s butt.. and we’re starting to wonder about that!!
*****When she hauls ass, she has to make two trips!!!
Kathleen Roberts, a woman who claims she’s Marilyn Monroe reincarnate, believes she’s married to Michael Jackson’s ghost. According to an article she wrote for the Daily Star, Roberts alleged that Jackson’s ghostly presence doesn’t have sex with her, however, he likes to use her earthly body to dance, sing and eat. Alongside a video, she revealed that MJ proposed to her “clairvoyantly” with a “pink engagement ring.” She also claimed in the article that they had the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. officiate their nuptials when she was getting out of a bathtub. “Michael stays in me all the time so he comes to the restroom with me and calls these special bonding moments ‘toiletries,’ ” Roberts wrote of Jackson, who died in June 2009 at 50 due to a cardiac arrest. “He stays possessed in me (relaxed not channeling and just enjoying living through me and communicating with me as a husband).” Roberts also wrote that she “feels special” that Jackson “chose” her to be his wife, they “treat our relationship as though we are married. We have our ups and downs but Michael, the truth is, I just can’t stop loving you.”
*******She’s knows it Michael’s ghost, because every once in awhile, Elvis’s ghost comes over to hang out!!
*****Weirdly, he looks just like he did in the “Thriller” video!!!
*****He stays in her all the time?? Kind of like Blake and Gwen!!!
Kelly Clarkson seems more than ready to start a new chapter in her life. Her professional achievements have been building for a while, and her ex-husband, Brandon Blackstock’s, reported insecurity with his former wife’s success might have been a contributing factor to the end of their marriage, and we hate the way it sounds like this dynamic was making her feel. According to a new report from Us Weekly, Blackstock, who served as Clarkson’s manager during their marriage, grew increasingly resentful of his wife’s success. “The relationship had been on the rocks for a long time,” a source shared with the outlet. “She was the high-income earner with a wildly successful talk show, and is the star of another hit show, The Voice. Brandon was extremely jealous of it and made her know it.” By the time Clarkson had her talk show, a coaching role on The Voice, and was working on new music, her income was reportedly in the millions. She eventually became concerned “that Brandon was just using her for her money and lifestyle” toward the end of their marriage. “The marriage was really, really awful at the end. … Kelly felt that she could no longer trust Brandon. She had a lot of questions that he just couldn’t answer,” the source went on. “She just wasn’t willing to look the other way anymore.”
*********True: When women have their own money, they’re not overly concerned about hanging on to a marriage!!! (discuss)
********We don’t know what he was down about.. she allowed him to wear his testicles every weekend!!
******Can a rich girl in Hollywood ever find love again??? Hell, yes!!!

Rita & Taika Talk Turkey!-(National Enquirer)
Rita Ora and Taika Waititi playing kissy-face with actress Tessa Thompson was just a tease! The three made headlines when they were snapped packing on the PDA in May in Australia. But British songbird Rita, 30, and Kiwi director Taika-who’s 16 years her senior-made their romance official when they cuddled up at “The Suicide Squad” premiere in L.A. on Aug. 2.
Cash-Hungry Jolie Prowls for Big-Bucks Boyfriend-(Globe)
Cash-strapped Angelina Jolie is angling for a billionaire beau to shore up her finances-and boost her stature in Hollywood, tipsters say. The scheming star, 46, has been bleeding big bucks battling ex Brad Pitt, 57, in a child custody slugfest that’s dragging on after nearly five years and millions in legal fees, sources squeal. “Angelina is frantic for cash. She hasn’t banked anywhere near enough to support her lifestyle in the past few years and she’s also taken an earnings hit from the pandemic,” dishes a pal. Now sources say the “Maleficent” movie witch is being inspired by pal Salma Hayek, 54, who married French fashion mogul, billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault, 59, in 2009. “Now Angie will limit her romantic prospects to high financial achievers going forward-and not be so caught up with looks and superficial career stuff.”
Adele & Rich: Low-Key Romance-(Us Weekly)
It turns out, the relationship between Adele and Rich Paul isn’t so new after all! “They’ve been dating for months,” an insider says, adding that the singer, 33, and the sports agent, 39, hang with the same crowd, which is why nobody picked up on the fact that they’ve quietly been seeing each other. “She seems really happy with him,” the insider says, noting that Adele was “very attentive and flirty” with Paul during a recent date in New York.
Emily & John: Clash of the Egos-(Star)
John Krasinski is letting the success of A Quiet Place and its sequel go straight to his head, spills a source, who warns that John’s love of the limelight could lead to long-term problems in his marriage to Emily Blunt. “John spent years trying to get his directing career off the ground. Nobody would take his calls and now, his phone won’t stop ringing,” the source says of The Office alum, 41. “His personality has totally changed. He’s putting fame and money above the more important things in life.” Meanwhile, the Jungle Cruise star, 38, with whom he shares two young daughters, is still “humble to a fault,” says the source. “Their family is way more important to her than the new clout they have as a power couple in Hollywood.”
Jen Tells All! Fame, Therapy & Forgiveness-(Life & Style)
Like many other Americans, Jennifer Aniston used the pandemic as an opportunity to reflect on what really matters to her. “There was so much good and so much horror all happening at once. For me, the good was a big decompression and an inventory of ‘What’s it all about?’” the actress, 52, says. When asked how she’s able to stay so optimistic after more than three decades in Hollywood and two failed marriages, to Brad Pitt and Justin Theroux, Jen only had one word: therapy. “I’ve watched people in my life go through hardships and hold on to resentment that eats away [at them.] Forgiveness is not in their vocabulary. That’s a real shame because it’s important to be able to forgive people.”
After retuning from the Tokyo Olympics, Simone Biles reunited with boyfriend Jonathan Owens, a safety for the Houston Texans. “Open practices aka bring your girlfriend to work day,” she captioned an Aug. 6 snap.
Reese: Faith, Family & My $1 Billion Fortune-(In Touch)
She’s officially a business mogul-what, like it’s hard? On Aug. 2, Reese Witherspoon called it “a tremendous day” as she announced on Instagram the sale of her media company for nearly $1 billion. “I started Hello Sunshine to change the way all women are seen in media. Over the past few years, we have watched our mission thrive through books, TV, film and social platforms. I couldn’t be more excited about what this means for our future.”
Two-Headed Turtle Found
National Park Service biologists in North Carolina made an unusual discovery while checking on sea turtle nests — a two-headed baby turtle. The National Park Service said wildlife biologists at Cape Hatteras National Seashore, in North Carolina’s Outer Banks, came across the unusual turtle on the beach this week. “Are two heads really better than one?! It’s not everyday that park biologists find a two-headed sea turtle!” the park said in a Facebook post. South Carolina State Parks said in late July that members of the Edisto Beach State Park’s Sea Turtle Patrol were conducting a routine nest inventory when they found the baby loggerhead with two heads. See the video HERE.
******There’s a name for two-headed turtles: “Reptilia Politico!!”
*******When they found him, he was talking to himself!!!
*******The only time it’s a problem is when each head wants to go in a different direction!!!
Anyone Missing A Leg?
A British woman who lost her prosthetic leg while swimming in a lake was reunited with her lost limb when a volunteer diver answered a plea for help on social media. Josephine Bridges, of Birmingham, England, said she was swimming in Windermere and lost her leg at some point after jumping off the Millerground jetty. Bridges’ sister, Emily, posted a plea for help on social media, and the Facebook post came to the attention of Angus Hosking, founder of Lake District Diving. Hosking met Bridges and her family at the lake and set about searching the bottom of the lake. “After getting changed and getting into the water I dove down and search along the left-hand side and worked my way to the end of the jetty. The visibility under the water was pretty terrible, so I was nearly on top of it when I finally saw it. I just saw a Birkenstock on the foot of it,” Hosking told LancsLive. See the video HERE.
********Wait. She was wearing a Birkenstock when she jumped in??
*****She tried to sue the people who own the jetty, but she didn’t have a leg to stand on!!!
****The day after she lost her leg, she went to breakfast at IHOP!!!
Python Found In Grocery Store
Shoppers at a grocery store in Australia were shocked to discover a 10-foot python slithering across a shelf in the spice section. Hilary Leigh posted a video to Facebook that showed the large snake she spotted on a shelf at the Woolworths store in Glenorie, a northwest suburb of Sydney. Witness Helaina Alati said she was shopping for dinner ingredients when she came face-to-face with the python. “It just wanted to say hello,” Alati told Guardian Australia. “Dozens of people must have walked past it.” A Woolworths representative said workers cordoned off the area to keep customers safe. Alati, who used to serve as a volunteer snake catcher, went home to retrieve equipment and returned to relocate the snake from the spice aisle to a more suitable habitat in the wild. “It was chill, and not aggressive at all,” Alati said. “It wasn’t in a defensive position. It slithered right into the bag. I’m used to seeing snakes in weird places, but I wouldn’t expect it to be in a Woolworths.”
******It was dangerous… the snake wasn’t even wearing a mask!!!
*******No worries!! The snake was just looking for a toilet to sleep in!!
Guy Spends Embezzled Money On Porn
A Florida man who pleaded guilty to embezzling almost $13 million from a nonprofit affiliated with the University of South Florida’s medical school spent most of it on a website where users pay to watch women online. Ralph Puglisi, a 59-year-old accounting manager for University Medical Service Association, admitted to misusing company credit cards to the tune of $12.6 million, according to the Tampa Bay Times. Of that, about $11 million was spent on an adult website called MyGirlFund.com, an adult entertainment site. But Puglisi didn’t appear to be using the site entirely for his own enjoyment. Some of the money went directly to a channel owned by his stepson’s fiancée, who then cashed out the tokens and split the proceeds, almost $745,000, 60/40, according to the Times. Puglisi also spent more than $22,500 on plane tickets for a woman and her friends to fly from Toronto to Orlando and another $43,662 at Disney World Resorts.
*******Hey, if your hooker friend is in from out of town, you want to take her for some wholesome Disney entertainment!!

STUFF THAT’S COOL AND VIRAL
VIDEO: CLASSIC REVIEW OF A 1982 DATSUN.
A LIST FOR THURSDAY
12 Items Doctors Always Keep In Their Medicine Cabinets
DuoDerm Extra Thin Bandages
DuoDerm Extra Thin is a waterproof bandage that comes highly recommended by Debra Jaliman, a board-certified dermatologist and assistant professor at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.
“It’s great for a blister, a cut, scrape or even good for after surgery. It speeds wound healing by 80%,” Jaliman said. “I bring it on trips as well. If it’s a very deep wound it needs medical attention and stitches.”
Ultrathon Insect Repellent Lotion
Jaliman also recommended 3M’s insect repellent lotion. She said it’s perfect for anyone who is prone to bug bites because it’s simply the “best one” she’s come across as a dermatologist.
Alyssa Dweck, a practicing gynecologist in New York, said she always keeps a probiotic geared toward vaginal health in stock.
“The vaginal biome is delicately balanced with a healthy pH in the acidic range,” she said. “With so many disruptors used day to day, a probiotic may be a real lifesaver for optimal vaginal health.”
When it comes to warding off illness, you want to have vitamin D. Many experts keep this on hand if they’re deficient.
“At the first sign any of us are coming down sick, we start our vitamin D to support our immune system,” said Jolene Brighten, author of “Beyond the Pill” and founder of Rubus Health, a women’s medicine clinic. Vitamin D can also help with your mood, too. Ask your doctor to do a routine blood test to find out what nutrients — like vitamin D — you might be deficient in, and they can tell you what you should keep in stock.
A Blood Pressure Monitor
Jaydeep Tripathy, a primary care doctor at the telehealth company Doctor Spring, said his home is equipped with a blood pressure device, like this MMIZOO monitor.
“One of the most useful devices is a home blood pressure monitor,” Tripathy said. “It’s useful even for the older adults because as one ages, hypertension risks are increased. Checking your blood pressure, especially if you are feeling off, can help with early detection of a medical problem.”
He pointed out that people who are generally healthy with no underlying conditions do not need to use this every single day. However, it’s extremely beneficial to keep on hand if you live with hypertension or hypotension.
“If your blood pressure goes beyond 180mmHg/100mmHg, and you are feeling other symptoms such as nausea and headaches, you should immediately seek medical attention,” he added.
Most people reach for the vitamin C in an effort to combat the first signs of a flu or cold, but there are a number of other benefits that occur when you get enough of the nutrient.
“Vitamin C is helpful for many things, not just helping to support our immune systems,” said Nicole Avena, an assistant professor of neuroscience at Mount Sinai School of Medicine. “Vitamin C is an antioxidant and can help reduce risk factors for heart disease and also can help prevent iron deficiency.”
Avena recommended vitamin C for both adults and children who aren’t eating a variety of vitamin C-containing foods (like citrus). Talk to your doctor to find out what they recommend keeping on hand.
If you’re someone who occasionally has a hard time falling asleep, Avena suggests trying some melatonin.
“Sometimes, it can be hard to fall asleep, especially if you are traveling or stressed. Melatonin is a hormone that naturally rises when you are about to fall asleep, so taking a supplement can help if you are having trouble falling asleep naturally,” she said.
Avena said it’s normal to have trouble falling asleep every so often, but if your sleeping troubles persist more than a week, seek out advice from your medical doctor.
Avena also keeps Zicam RapidMelts in her own medicine cabinet and recommended it for those moments “when you feel that tickle in your throat, or the onset of a cold or flu coming on.”
Michelle Sandberg, a pediatrician at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center in San Jose, recommended keeping Benadryl in your medicine cabinet at home.
Benadryl is excellent at treating allergies and allergic reactions caused by most things, including bee stings and insect bites, she explained.
If you’ll be spending time outdoors this summer, then consider stocking up on Sandberg’s recommendation of mineral sunscreen.
She personally looks for products with zinc oxide or titanium dioxide as ingredients. Just make sure to avoid active ingredients like oxybenzone, avobenzone, octisalate, octocrylene, homosalate and octinoxate.
Experts previously told HuffPost they recommended mineral sunscreens like the Kinship Self Reflect Probiotic Sunscreen for $42 and the Sun Bum Sunscreen Face Stick for $11.39.
Now, if you made the mistake of forgetting your sunscreen or it just didn’t do its job, then Brighten suggests turning to aloe vera.
“We live in a sunny place and despite our best efforts with sunscreen, mild burns sometimes happen. It’s always best to have it on hand in the event they do,” she said.
Experts recommend looking for aloe products that do not contain alcohol, like this bottle of Up&Up Aloe Vera Gel for $5.99, because it can sting or irritate burns further.
Beekeeper’s Natural Throat Spray
Finally, Brighten also keeps a throat spray on hand for when she’s sick.
“Bee Keeper’s Natural Throat Spray helps soothe a sore throat,” Brighten said. “It also contains propolis, which is derived from bee resin and has immune supportive properties.”
