Taylor Swift tells Elle magazine that you should get to know someone before you date them. "Before you jump in headfirst, maybe, I don’t know...get to know someone! What I know now to be more valuable about a person is not their charming routine upon meeting them, but the layers of a person you discover in time. Are they honest, self-aware, and slyly funny at the moments you least expect it? Do they show up for you when you need them? Do they still love you after they’ve seen you broken? Or after they’ve walked in on you having a full conversation with your cats as if they’re people? These are things a first impression could never convey.

The NY Post says Britney Spears has finished her memoir. A source tells the newspaper that it will be released in the Fall. “Britney’s book is a story of triumph. It will cover her most vulnerable moments, her childhood – being a little girl with big dreams – her break-up with Justin Timberlake, the moment she shaved her head, and her battle with her family over her conservatorship. It is also a story of survival, finding her way out of the crippling conservatorship to finding happiness with her husband Sam Ashgari.”
The International News says Meghan Markle has a good reason for not attending King Charles' coronation on May 6th. A source tells the website, "The Coronation does fall on Prince Archie's 4th birthday and this has likely played a factor to Meghan staying in California with Archie and Lilibet. We know that the Duke and Duchess take an active role in their children's upbringing and, therefore, prioritise family time including birthday celebrations. Another factor to Meghan not attending could be due to the media circus surrounding the couple if they did attend together. Their mere presence would be a huge distraction from the Coronation itself. We know this from just the speculation of whether they have been invited. If they did both attend the Coronation, it is without doubt that there would be countless coverage of where they stayed, their seating arrangement, what they wore (include whether Harry wore Military uniform), who they did and did not speak to etc. This would be the case despite how lowkey and short they try to keep their attendance. It is possible that this has played a part in the decision."

Matthew McConaughey tells Kelly Ripa that Woody Harrelson may be his brother. "In Greece a few years ago, we're sitting around talking about how close we are and our families, And my mom is there, and she says, ‘Woody, I knew your dad.' Everyone was aware of the ellipses that my mom left after ‘knew.' It was a loaded K-N-E-W. We went on to unpack what this ‘knew' meant and did some math and found out that [Woody's] dad was on furlough at the same time that my mom and dad were in their second divorce. Then there's possible receipts and places out in West Texas where there might have been a gathering, or a meeting, or a ‘knew' moment. Look, it's a little easier for Woody to say, ‘Come on, let's do [DNA tests],' because what's the skin in it for him? It's a little harder for me because he's asking me to take a chance to go, ‘Wait a minute, you're trying to tell me my dad may not be my dad after 53 years of believing that?' I got a little more skin in the game."
Radar Online claims Tom Cruise is allegedly ignoring Will Smith's phone calls to do a movie together. A source tells the website, "Making a movie with Tom would be a major win for Will, but, apparently, Tom hasn't returned any of his calls. Tom has been lying low in Hollywood, so he isn't about to publicly come to anyone's defense, even for Will. The last thing he wants is to be embroiled in that drama. Will has approached Tom several times, trying to reconnect and see if they can hang out and brainstorm on some projects together. A solid movie with Tom would guarantee Will's comeback, or so he thinks. Will has even offered to fly to London if that's more convenient, but Tom isn't biting and doesn't even write him back."
Chris Evans doesn't think he is going to return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe to play Captain America again. The International News quotes him as saying, "It's tough, because look, I love that role deeply. He means so much to me, and I really do. I think there's more Steve Rogers stories to tell, sure. But at the same time, I'm very, very precious with it. It's like this little shiny thing that I have that I love so much, and I just don't want to mess up in any way, and I was a part of something that was so special for the special period of time and in a way, it really landed so well. As much as I'm connected to that role and love telling those stories and working with those people. It doesn't quite feel right right now."

My husband installed cameras on the outside of our home last month. I was bored at work and going through the camera's history when I caught my neighbor leaving his house in the afternoon with a woman, who was not his wife. I think it's one of his assistants at work. He looked like he was still getting dressed as they were getting into his car. The guy has always been a total jerk to his wife. She deserves better. I am thinking about sending her a copy of the tape. If I do, it may cause them to divorce. I don't think she has the money to live on her own with the kids so this may be risky. She has a right to know her husband is cheating. Is it my place to tell her? I could be getting her into financial trouble if they split. What do I do?
