COURTENEY COX CALLS JOHNNY MCDAID BREAKUP 'BRUTAL': Courteney Cox appeared on Running Wild with Bear Grylls earlier this week where she discussed her split from Johnny McDaid last year saying, "We were engaged for over a year and then we broke up. I didn't know how to regard love the way he does. And it definitely made a lot of mistakes that I see, whether it's co-dependency or people-pleasing. I didn't know how to bring it in. It was always external. I definitely have learned a lot, and no matter what, I will be a better person from that breakup, even though it was so brutal." She went on to discuss their reunion adding, "It’s just...everything's new. We have both really worked on ourselves on the parts that needed the most attention. And it feels really different." They started dating in 2013.
LINDA THOMPSON OPENS UP ABOUT MARRIAGE TO CAITLYN JENNER: Caitlyn Jenner's ex-wife, Linda Thompson, has come full circle since first learning that her husband actually identified as a woman. She explained on Tuesday's (August 23rd) Good Morning America, "My happiness was complete, until that day when Brody was 18 months old and Brandon was just about 3 and a half, and my remarkable husband came to me and said, 'I need to tell you something about myself.' He said, 'I identify as a woman.' It was earth-shattering, it was devastating. People can't understand -- 'You must've had some kind of an idea.' No! Nunca, nada, nothing! My deeper compassion went to Bruce, for her to have felt so trapped in the wrong body. It broke my heart to think he had struggled so long, so hard." Linda went on to say of the transition, "I think more than anything it's been a relief for Caitlyn to be able to emerge as her true self. For the rest of us, we love her. But when I first met her, she was in a Bruce Jenner body. He was just an incredible person -- still is. And I've since said to her, 'You've gotta give yourself credit. You kicked manhood's butt.'" They were married from 1981 to 1986.
NICK OFFERMAN WANTS TO BREAK THE STIGMA OF MIDDLE-AGED SEX: Former Parks and Recreation star Nick Offerman wants to shatter the stigma regarding middle-aged sex along with his wife, Megan Mullally. He explained to The A.V. Club, "I'm 46, Megan's 57, and we have a happy marriage. We get it on with each other and we feel very celebratory about that...We don't go make out in front of people at the mall but we will happily sing songs about it and trumpet the fact that we simply are happy in middle age as a loving couple, because I do think there's a real ageism in our business where if you're over 35 you're not supposed to ever kiss anybody with tongue." They are currently on tour together with their live show, Summer of 69: No Apostrophe. Nick and Megan married in 2003.
ALI LOHAN SAYS FAMILY DRAMA GETS TWISTED BY THE MEDIA: Ali Lohan is attempting to launch her music career but is fully aware that her family association precedes her. She explains in a new interview with Cosmopolitan magazine, "It's just crazy how things can get out, and be twisted and completely fabricated. That was mind-blowing to me. Being born in a family that's public, that's just been my life. I've never gone out of my way for attention." The 22-year-old also explains why she called out Jennifer Lawrence for dissing her sister last year saying, "That was literally something that came over me where I was like, 'You know what, that's my sister. I gotta say something...' At first, I was like, 'S**t. Are people gonna jump on this?' I'm like, 'You know what? It's OK.' Because I just wanted her to know that you should stand up for other women, you should help people and not put them down, ever."
