Suzanne Somers tells the Behind the Velvet Rope podcast that John Ritter's son, Jason, rejected a Three's Company reboot. "I had suggested a show where you would imagine that Chrissy Snow and Jack Tripper eventually got married and they had a child and the child was Jason Ritter. I had suggested this to Jason's people and that the show would be me and Jason, but that John would appear as a hologram because it'd be like he was back and alive, but Jason doesn't want to do anything reminiscent of what his father did. That was the last time I got kinda turned on by thinking about doing a series again."

Megan Fox tells Glamour magazine that she and Machine Gun Kelly drink each other's blood. “Yeah. So, I guess to drink each other’s blood might mislead people or people are imagining us with goblets and we’re like Game of Thrones, drinking each other’s blood. It’s just a few drops, but yes, we do consume each other’s blood on occasion for ritual purposes only. I’m much more controlled. I read tarot cards and I’m into astrology and I’m doing all these metaphysical practices and meditations. And I do rituals on new moons and full moons, and all these things. And so, when I do it, it’s a passage or it is used for a reason. And it is controlled where it’s like, ‘Let’s shed a few drops of blood and each drink it.’ He’s much more haphazard and hectic and chaotic, where he’s willing to just cut his chest open with broken glass and be like, ‘Take my soul'.''

I was working out at my health club on Monday when two of the club's employees started walking towards me with two giant rose bouquets. I didn't think the flowers were for me until they handed them over. It turns out I have a secret admirer at the gym. He smiled and waved from the front desk and then left. My boyfriend freaked out when I brought the roses home. He said I should have never accepted them. I told him I was keeping the roses. This sparked an argument. I told him the flowers were thoughtful and that he needs to work harder at being more romantic and creative when it comes to our relationship. He says keeping the flowers is disrespectful. Who is right ... me or him? Should I be keeping the flowers?
