“Good Morning America” anchors T.J. Holmes and​​ Amy Robach have been temporarily taken off the air in the aftermath of their affair leaking to the public. ABC News' President, Kim Godwin, made the announcement, calling the situation an "internal and external distraction." It doesn’t appear they’ve burnt their bridges with the network but rather the network has yet to figure out the next step and how best to move forward, according to TMZ. What’s interesting though is that their drama has brought up their ratings.

Oh, the deceit! Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are being accused of using fake images in their promo for their new Netflix docuseries. Apparently, an image used in the trailer was actually taken five years before they even met, according to RadarOnline.com. The image was seemingly used to show a group of paparazzi surrounding Harry and Meghan. But, an investigation into the photograph found that the pic was actually taken in July 2011 during the premiere of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part Two” in central London, five years before Harry and Meghan even met. According to Daily Mail, neither Harry nor Meghan were at that premiere, and in actuality, the paparazzi were fighting to take pictures of Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson. Royal expert Ingrid Steward noted, “I don’t imagine Harry would have realized, but Netflix have been careless here as it weakens Harry’s comment about protecting his family.” The photograph was initially shown in the first Harry & Meghan ­trailer on Thursday while Prince Harry provided a voiceover saying, “I had to do everything I could to protect my family.”

Kirstie Alley has died at the age of 71 after a short battle with cancer. Her children, True and Lillie Parker, made the announcement on Instagram saying, “We are sad to inform you that our incredible, fierce and loving mother has passed away after a battle with cancer, only recently discovered.” Kirstie is best known for her role in the sitcom "Cheers" for her role as Rebecca Howe from 1987 through 1993. She then starred in her own show "Veronica's Closet" from 1997 through 2000. Her film work includes the "Look Who's Talking" series. Most recently, she appeared on the horror series “Scream Queens,” and earlier this year she was on “The Masked Singer.”

Imagine Dragons frontman Dan Reynolds got in some digs and backhanded compliments in his acceptance speech on behalf of the band for Variety’s sixth annual Hitmakers awards. Imagine Dragons, who has become one of the world's best-selling music artists, won Group of the Year, and Dan said in his speech, “Shout out Atlantic Records. You guys passed on us. Shout out to you. You took us to Disneyland, though. Remember that? You guys took us to Disneyland for free! That was great!...But Atlantic, we're celebrating you.
It's good to have some healthy competition.” He then thanked the band’s label, Interscope Records, calling them “the best in the world” but also saying, “Our president isn't here. He doesn't care enough. But that's OK. It's all good.
Don't worry about it. It's all good. We'll keep making you money.” He also took a swing at his family, saying that his Mormon parents never wanted him to be a musician, noting, “I have seven brothers. They're all doctors and lawyers. But I'm the richest now!”

Now that both the teaser and the trailer for “Harry & Meghan” have been dropped by Netflix, royal experts are saying it will be “an amazing act of revenge.” Royal author Richard Fizwilliams said that the effects of this series will be felt for years, explaining, “I think this will widen the rift between the brothers. There is no doubt that this Netflix series is an amazing act of revenge designed to weaken the very institution that William will inherit as future King, adding, “This is a full frontal, extremely destructive attack on the Royal Family - the institution as well as individual households and members of those households.” The late Queen’s former press secretary, Dickie Arbiter, added, “Harry says he's doing this to protect his family - protect them from what? Meghan says if we only knew what happened behind closed doors - why should we? What exactly is it that they have to say which we haven't heard before?” The documentary will begin airing December 8th, two days from now.

It’s been a year since Nick Cannon and Alyssa Scott lost their son, Zen, and he noted the “painful anniversary” on Instagram yesterday. He wrote, “Been tossing and turning all night, and as much as I know I need rest, last night I couldn’t sleep at all. I can’t believe it’s been a year already since the toughest day of my life occurred. Losing a child has to be the heaviest, most dark and depressive experiences that I will never get over. A mixture of guilt, pain, and sorrow is what I suppress daily.”

For the third time since August, Britney Spears has deleted her Instagram account, just after showering her sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, with love. An insider told the NY Post she was just taking a break, as she has in the past. They added that the attention around Britney's recent Instagram posts has been blown out of proportion, so she’s taking a break. Even though her Instagram is gone (for now), as of last night her Twitter and Tik Tok accounts were still live.

After making the biggest stink about missing out on his daughter, North West’s birthday, to the point where birthday parties were negotiated into the divorce agreement, Ye didn’t even show up to his son, Saint West’s party. Kim Kardashian celebrated Saint’s 7th birthday at the LA Rams game on Sunday. He got to hang out on the field, and it looked like they got those special seats high up. He and his friends were all dressed in team jerseys and got to hand out with the Rams' mascot and check out the Vince Lombardi Trophy. Maybe Ye is holding out for the family celebration.

Days after her 41st birthday, Britney Spears took to social media with an emotional message directed to her teenage sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James. According to OK, she wrote on Instagram, “To both of my boys … I love you … I would die for you !!! God speed my precious hearts !!! I would give anything just to touch your face !!!,”  Sean, 17, and Jayden, 16, haven’t spoken to or seen Britney in quite some time, sources say, because they’re embarrassed by her behavior online.

Michael Bublé documented his experience of getting the name of his fourth baby, daughter Cielo, tattooed on his arm above the names of his other three kids with wife Luisana Lopilato. He wondered aloud if he could get his wife to agree to change their daughter’s name to just “C” so he could avoid as much pain as possible. As for what the future holds, Michael said, “I've got enough space [on my arm] for at least six more kids.
They will have one syllable names.”
