It hasn't been an easy week for Kelly Osbourne, whose close friend Amy Winehouse passed away on July 23. Kelly, who was recently photographed wearing her hair in a beehive hairdo at the singer's funeral, has been sharing her difficult time and how her family is helping her cope with her million-plus Twitter followers. The host of E!'s Fashion Police tweeted, "thank god for my dad he just flew in from LA! his hug alone made me feel so much better" and added," its times like these that show u how important ur loved ones r & how to truly appreciate life! we only get one chance make it count!" Keep your head up, Kelly!
Whether she's on The View or hosting her own show on HLN, it's no secret that Joy Behar isn't a fan of conservative commentator Ann Coulter. On Wednesday night, the liberal host went head-to-head with the author of How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must) — and neither woman held back in what became a fiery debate about the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy and conversion therapy. Now, In Touch can reveal that Friday, July 29 at 10 p.m. ET on The Joy Behar Show, the second part of the controversial interview will air — and there surely will be plenty to discuss at the water cooler on Monday morning! According to a show insider, the pair will discuss Oregon Rep. David “Tiger” Wu, who this week announced his planned resignation from Congress because of a sex scandal. Sounds juicy! Check out Joy's blog for more about the show!
TV correspondent and author Mo Rocca is probably most well-known for his political commentary and thick glasses, but the former Daily Show star is now opening up about his personal life. In a candid interview with Ben Harvey and Dave Rubin of The Six Pack online radio talk show, Mo reveals how he came to terms with being gay while working in the public eye. "I'm just more comfortable with myself now," Mo says. "It's taken me until I'm 42 to begin feel this way." The satirist also recently decided to stop wearing his signature frames. "I felt like I was hiding behind my glasses, as if my glasses were becoming a costume piece."
If you miss seeing Mo work with Jon Stewart on Comedy Central's The Daily Show, there's a chance you'll be able to see the old gang back together. "That would be fun… I believe Steve [Carell] is sincere about doing it, and I believe Jon is, too. I'd love to do it!"

Here she is! Kelly Rowland celebrated her third solo album release, Here I Am, on July 27 at the top of the über-posh Standard Hotel in New York. The event, hosted by Moët Rose, was filled with flowing champagne and giggling girl talk among the former Destiny's Child trio.
The queen "B" herself, Beyoncé, arrived a little after 1 a.m. to partake in a few dry martinis (with olives, of course) and a glass of bubbly while doing a tipsy two-step with Kelly, Michelle Williams and R&B singer Maxwell. The divas hugged all night and playfully sung along to Kelly's smash hit “Motivation." Beyoncé was sure to sing the loudest in support of her bestie, Kelly!
True Blood star Alexander Skarsgård has called it quits with his longtime girlfriend, Kate Bosworth. The two had been together for the nearly two years and recently drew attention to themselves by noticeably not spending time together.
Alex, 34, was reported seen flirting with female fans at Comic-Con. The two co-star together in Straw Dogs, which will be out later this fall.
George Clooney broke up with Elisabetta Canalis, but he didn’t want to break up with her cooking! According to an insider, during their two-year relationship, George, 50, fell in love with Elisabetta’s skills in the kitchen, especially her homemade tomato sauce.
Although they’re no longer dating, Elisabetta, 32, is still filling George’s fridge, sending him jars of her tomato sauce as well as other specialties like marinated eggplant and sesame cookies. “Elisabetta was of course heartbroken when George ended things, because she really believed they’d marry one day. But she still feels the need to feed and take care of him when she can,” the insider says. “She knows the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, so that could be the reason she’s still sending him care packages.” Hey, it could work!
Most 2-year-old girls spend the majority of their carefree young lives with their mothers, playing with dolls, having tea parties and coloring pictures, but not Amber Portwood’s daughter, Leah. The tot has been living every day without the woman who brought her into the world. Since the troubled Teen Mom star’s attempt at suicide on June 14, Amber has been spending time in a rehab center in California. Amber is being treated for anger management and depression — and, some believe, a problem with prescription pills.
Leah hasn’t been reacting well to Amber’s absence. Amber’s brother, Shawn, tells In Touch that Leah desperately clings to his girlfriend whenever they visit. “Because she can’t see my sister, she’s looking for that female figure,” he says. But without her real mom around, Leah is beginning to act out. “She throws fits and bites and hits other children,” a family insider tells In Touch. “She can be a wild little girl.”
Leah’s father, Gary Shirley, 24, hasn’t been around much, either. “Gary rarely spends time with Leah. Instead, he’s out at the bars almost every night,” a friend tells In Touch, adding that Gary bragged about hooking up with lots of different girls while downing drinks at his local Anderson, Ind., strip club, Hoosier Girls, on July 20.
While Gary lets loose, his mother, Carol, cares for Leah, but she’s hardly acting like the stable parent the little girl so desperately needs. Leah’s only hope of having a normal childhood is having two dependable parents. Fortunately, Amber seems to be making improvements in rehab, Shawn says. “She is doing better. She is working out, kickboxing and has a whole new routine,” he recounts, adding that the young mother could remain in treatment for up to two more months. Then, when she returns home, she can finally focus on what’s truly important: giving her daughter the stable life she herself never had.
Ashley Dupré, once outed as a call girl for former New York governor Eliot Spitzer, will now be seen in a different light in her reality TV debut. "I'm not trying to be seen as anything other then myself and hoping that's what shows through," Ashley exclusively tells In Touch.
On the new VH1 series Famous Food, Ashley joins other celebrities in opening an LA restaurant from scratch, with a chance to win a partnership position in the new venture. Proving to the public "she's more than just a former escort," Ashley believed it was important to "stand up" for herself after coming to grips with the fact she will always have the label. "So for me it's not about recreating my image, it's about giving people the opportunity to know more of me rather then just the one negative thing from my past," she explains. "I'm a little quirky and a dork at heart, but I'm also hard-working, dedicated and genuinely caring of others."
Here are clips from episode 4 of VH1's Famous Food which premieres today at 8 p.m. ET/PT! http://51minds.wiredrive.com/r/p/?presentation=1c56f1a9d82417b3810afc81771ad92a
Just when we thought the journey to find true love for Bachelorette Ashley Herbert was over, In Touch has learned that, in real life, J.P. Rosenbaum is still not over his first love. His ex Stephanie Kerman broke his heart back in 2008, and has since moved on with another serious boyfriend, but J.P. just can’t seem to totally move forward.
J.P. seems like a sweet, happy guy on the show, but he’s been living a double life for the sake of the cameras. “J.P. was severely depressed over the breakup when he tried out for the show,” reveals a Bachelorette insider. In fact, “he only tried out for The Bachelorette at the insistence of a friend who wanted to snap him out of his heartbreak.” The fact that J.P.’s feelings were still so raw when he auditioned is both surprising and disturbing.
Ashley received a 4-carat, $150,000 engagement ring, the biggest in Bachelor and Bachelorette history, but accepting it and walking down the aisle may be the biggest mistake of her life. If she is ever going to make J.P. truly forget Stephanie, Ashley has her work cut out for her. J.P.’s first love will be a tough act to follow, and insecure Ashley may not be up for the task. While she claims to feel “secure” and “relaxed” around him, her touchy-feely body language says otherwise. Though after what she’s been through, it’s hard to blame her. Like J.P., Ashley entered into this season of The Bachelorette as someone recovering from a broken heart.
Even though J.P. has told her he loves her and Ashley in return has presented him with the final rose, J.P. may still be to damaged by “the one that got away” to live happily ever after with Ashley. “I need to be sure that this is very real for both of us,” Ashley admits. But, unfortunately, on a show like The Bachelorette, it’s impossible to be sure that anything is real.
