Anna Faris: "Life Is Too Short" To Be With Somebody That "Doesn't Have Your Back"

Whoa! She's not holding back!

Anna Faris took a pretty obvious swipe at estranged husband Chris Pratt while giving advice to a caller on the Unqualified podcast, and it gave us a pretty good idea of what caused the A-list couple's split.

“Life is too short to be in relationships where you feel this isn’t fully right or somebody doesn’t have your back, or somebody doesn’t fully value you. Don’t be afraid to feel your independence if things aren’t right," she said.

“I made that mistake, I think, a little bit, like ‘I’m checking my relationship off the lis.' And if that would be the final piece of advice I could give you, that would be know your worth, know your independence. There's so much life experience. I hope you get to live it all and experience a whole lot of people," she added.

The super star couple announced their decision to separate in a joint statement this past Sunday.

"We are sad to announce we are legally separating. We tried really hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed. Our son has two parents who love him very much and for his sake we want to keep the situation as private as possible moving forward. We still love each other and will always cherish our time together," they wrote on Instagram.

The only thing worse would be if Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard called it quits!

Kind of!

Jake Paul dropped by Petco with some of his Team 10 members yesterday to pick up some pet supplies, and at first we thought he was showing off her his new pooch to random women in the parking lot, but then we realized what was going on.

In a weird turn of events, Vanderpump Rules star James Kennedy's mom happened to be there at the same time, and asked the YouTube star to pose for a pic with her own furry friend.

Not to worry, though! The former Disney star took to Instagram today to introduce his new four legged son.

"Jake Paulers, let's welcome APOLLO to our lives❤️ my boy is a beast!! He's named after the Greek God Apollo... who is the god of the sun, creativity, & light.. I named him Apollo as a constant reminder of being creative & having a positive light & STRAIGHT UP BEING A GOD!! currently learning how to be a dad😂 can we get him to 1 million followers in a day? @apollothek9 <-- let's go!!" he captioned the adorable snapshot.

Let's hope he can be a responsible parent!

Ben Affleck Celebrates His Birthday With His Kids

Posted on Wed Aug 16th, 2017 11:15am PDT       By X17 Staff

What better way to mark the milestone!

Ben Affleck celebrated his 45th birthday by having dinner with his three children at swanky Barton G in West Hollywood last night, and the kiddos made sure he had plenty of presents to open. How cute! The only person noticeably absent? His girlfriend Lindsay Shookus. The Oscar winner and Jen Garner must have an agreement about not introducing the kids to new love interests until the time is right.

"They had a great night at Barton G. He appeared to be over the moon and there were lots of good laughs. Ben looked very happy celebrating his birthday and spending time with the kids. They were giving him hugs and leaning on him throughout dinner. The kids had a cardboard box that they gave him. Jen wasn't there, just Ben and the nanny brought the kids," a source dished to E! News.

"They ordered the huge pink cotton candy Marie Antoinette's Head and the big Dolla Dolla Bills Y'all chocolate ganache tart covered in gold," the source added.

In other Ben news, the A-lister's brother Casey might have just let the cat out of the bag that he's not doing Batman anymore!

"I thought he was an OK Batman. No, he was great. He was great. He’s a hero, so he had something to channel and work with there. But he’s not going to do that movie [The Batman], I don’t think. Sorry to say," he said on the Dale & Holley With Keefe radio show, before realizing he was spilling a secret. "Is that breaking news? Because I was just kind of making that up, I don’t know," he backpedaled.

Let's hope this year was better than the last one!


The Kardashians Reflect On KUWTK Biggest Moments In Hollywood Reporter Cover Story

Posted on Wed Aug 16th, 2017 10:20am PDT       By X17 Staff

We can't believe how long they've been relevant!

The Kardashian ladies have dominated reality TV for the past ten years with their wildly successful show, and they looked back on some of the most dramatic and memorable moments in a new Hollywood Reporter cover story.

The E! bombshells sat down with executive producer Ryan Seacrest and Bunim/Murray co-president Jeff Jenkins to dish about everything from Caitlyn's transition to Kim's failed marriage to Kris Humphries, and it's juicy!

Kris Jenner touched on Caitlyn's claim that the family reality show was her idea, and she couldn't help herself but be petty. "It's so absurd. I'm not sure what the motivation was for her to say something like that. Maybe somebody should remind her that it's called Keeping Up With the Kardashians," she sniped.

As for the I Am Cait star's headline-making transition?

"The most difficult thing [to film] was probably Caitlyn's transition and just seeing my mom and Khloe having such a hard time. We never really edited content before, but we did edit a bit of Khloe's reaction just because she was so upset," Kim explained.

"If I act a certain way, I act a certain way, but I just knew in my head this needed to be a four-hour episode. This is so real, and I want to ask every question I have, but also I want honest answers," Khloe clarified.

Kimmy K also revealed that she almost didn't go through with her wedding to Kris Humphries, because she knew the relationship wasn't right.

"The night before, my mom pulled me aside, off camera, and was like, 'This isn't it for you. Why don't you go away and I'll handle it?' I felt like, if I pulled out now, everyone’s going to think I just did it for the show. Then afterwards, people were saying, 'You have to stay married for a year,' but I physically couldn't do it. When I made the decision [to divorce], everyone said it was made up for the show. Everyone really wanted to take me down," the mother-of-three confessed.

"Think about this realistically: If it was for the show don't you think we would have found someone that signed off? Someone OK with getting married and getting divorced two months later? If it's for a show don't you think you'd want as little legal trouble as possible? This was real emotions, real feelings. People f*ck up," she reasoned.

Khloe had no choice but to address her decision to film spinoff Khloe and Lamar amid her basketball player husband's battle with substance abuse.

"I never wanted to do Khloe & Lamar [which ran for two seasons in 2011 and 2012]; my ex-husband did. He sold it to E!, and I let it happen because I wanted him to be happy. I was the one who canceled it. It was way too much," she admitted.

"We deferred to Khloe on what she was comfortable with, because someone's life was hanging in the balance and that someone is a hero to a lot of young people. It wasn't necessary to go stick a camera in Lamar's face while he's on death's door in the hospital. It's just too much, so I guess, in a way, there is a line," Jenkins filled in.

Then there was that whole Pepsi scandal involving Kendall Jenner, which many believed trivialized the Black Lives Matter movement.

"We're not perfect, but you see these things in the media, like Kendall and [her Pepsi ad that was accused of trivializing Black Lives Matter], where I see her at home crying, but in the media she looks another way because she's not addressing it. I'm just like, "This is wrong. You need to speak up." She was like, "I don't ever want to show that footage of me crying." She was trying to not make excuses or be dramatic, but that was what she was going through at the time," Kim said in defense of her sister.

Just because they've made it to the top doesn't mean they're slowing down! We caught all the girls - minus Kim! - fiming KUWTK yesterday at the studio. They went to great lengths to hide from photographers as they made their exit, which makes us think they have something up their sleeves that they're cooking up for ratings!

Obama's Charlottesville Tweet Becomes Most Liked In History

Posted on Wed Aug 16th, 2017 9:00am PDT       By X17 Staff

The former POTUS is clearly more popular than the current one!

Barack Obama's tweet following the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday has become the most "liked" in the history of Twitter. Obama shared a Nelson Mandela quote after the violence broke out, which killed three people.

"No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love. For love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite. - Nelson Mandela," the tweet read.

Donald Trump is getting MAJOR backlash for refusing to condemn white supremacists and saying that "both sides" are equally responsible for the incident, and a lot of people are saying his sentiments during his press conference at Trump Tower are the beginning of the end of his presidency.

"What about the alt-left that came charging at, as you say, the alt-right, do they have any semblance of guilt? What about the fact that they have charging with clubs in their hands, swinging clubs. Do they have any problem? I think they do. So as far as I’m concerned that was a horrible, horrible day. Wait a minute, I'm not finished, fake news," he told reporters.

"I watched those much more closely than you people watched it, and you had a group on one side that was bad and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent. And nobody wants to say that, but I’ll say that right now. You had a group on one side that came charging in, without a permit, and they were very, very violent," he added.

And to think qualified, measured Hillary Clinton could be running the country right now...


Chris Brown Tells All On The Night He Beat Rihanna In New Doc Welcome To My Life

Posted on Wed Aug 16th, 2017 8:20am PDT       By X17 Staff

Hasn't he ever heard of the fact you're never supposed to hit a woman?

Chris Brown explained every detail of the night he savagely beat Rihanna in his new documentary Welcome to my Life, and while we believe some of his story, he basically tries to say that both of them were abusive towards each other. Victim blaming at its finest!

The rapper says it all started when he confessed to Riri that he had slept with a woman prior to their romance, and she just couldn't get it over it.

"My trust totally was lost with her, she hated me after that. I tried everything, she didn’t care. She just didn’t trust me after that. From there, it just went downhill because there were too many verbal fights, physical fights as well. Mutual sides. It is the first time I get to say anything. We would fight each other. She would hit me, I would hit her and it never was OK," he explained.

The pair recognized they had a problem, yet it persisted.

"There was always a point where we’d talk about it like, 'What the f—k are we doing?’ Like, 'I don’t like you slapping me.' If I go on stage I got a scratch on my face and I gotta explain it like, ‘Oh, no I fell.' If you got a scar or a bruise you gotta put makeup on. I’m not ever trying to put my hands on any female. I felt like a f-ing monster," he continued.

Things reached a breaking point when that unidentified woman showed up unexpectedly at Clive Davis' pre-Grammy party.

“The ceremony’s about to start, she’s just crying. She got over it. She started drinking a little bit, we both was drinking a little bit. We was tipsy, laughing and then we left," he said about the singer's reaction.

Clearly the "Wild Thoughts" songstress wasn't over it, and when she saw a text message from the woman on Breezy's phone as they were driving home, all hell broke loose.

"She starts going off, she throws the phone...'I hate you.’ She hits me a couple more times. I remember she tried to kick me, but then I really hit her, with a closed fist, I punched her. I busted her lip. When I saw it, I was in shock. I was like, ‘F—k’ why the hell did I hit her? From there she just spit in my face, spit blood in my face and it enraged me even more. She takes the keys out of the car and fakes it like she throws them out of the window. I get out the car and I’m looking for the keys and somebody yelled and she yells out her door, ‘Help, he’s trying to kill me,'" he confessed.

At least it's over now!


MUST-SEE PHOTOS - Kendall Goes Braless And Kylie Dresses Down For Dinner Date

Posted on Wed Aug 16th, 2017 6:44am PDT       By X17 Staff

Kendall Jenner bares all! The young supermodel followed the latest trend and left her bra at home for a night out at Pace restaurant with sis Kylie and her pal Jordyn Woods. Kendall's fellow model pals Bella and Gigi Hadid, Cara Delevigne and others have been ditches the chest support undergarments as of late and frankly, we LOVE this trend! She wore a see-through white tank with ripped grey jeans -- with a strategic hole just under her booty crease, and light grey ankle boots with a snakeskin belt.

Meanwhile, sis Kylie dressed down and way less sexy in a red Dodge jacket, which was weird. The billowing windbreaker had an 80s vibe but also appeared to be covering up a bit of a belly on the younger Jenner, who paired it with tight black leggings, another black sweatshirt underneath and velvet Fendi slides. Not her best look ...

A crowd of fans and paparazzi circled the gang as they entered and left the restaurant and our videographer got in a few questions ... to Kendall: "Are you dating Blake Griffin?" (See our pix of the two of them partying together after Kendrick Lamar's concert last week.) And to Kylie: "Are you worried about your show's ratings?" See how it all went down AND see the hot mystery dude driving them home! Who dat?!


Nicest Ex Ever! Jen Garner Buys A Cake For Ben Affleck's Birthday

Posted on Tue Aug 15th, 2017 2:20pm PDT       By X17 Staff

Someone give this woman a medal!

Jennifer Garner swung by a bakery in Brentwood this afternoon to pick up a cake, and we think it's no coincidence that it's Ben Affleck's birthday! Is she some sort of saint?

The Batman actor cheated on her with girlfriend Lindsay Shookus for years and broke up their marriage, and he's been parading his new lady love all over town in recent months. We guess this is Jen G taking the high road! It's also possible the actress was buying the sweet treat so her kids could surprise their dad with it.

She might be doing a great job at keeping things civil with the Oscar winner, but she's relieved to be done dealing with his problems, amid rumors he's back to boozing after his stint in rehab earlier this year.

"[Jen] feels like Ben’s drinking is Lindsay’s problem now. Of course, Jen worries about Ben’s health because is the father of her children [Violet, 11, Seraphina, 8, and Samuel, 5], but she feel slike she’s done everything she can to help him over the years. It’s Lindsay’s turn," a source dished to In Touch.

"Jen is very surprised that Lindsay is drinking around Ben. But she feels that ultimately it’s up to [Lindsay] how she wants to handle the situation,” the source added.

Jen is a class act, that's for sure!
