Round 2 for Madge and Sean?
What would it take for friendly exes Madonna and Sean Penn to get hitched once again? Turns out, a hefty price tag—but if you think about it, not a bad deal. Madonna hosted a charity gala for Raising Malawi at Art Basel in Miami on Friday and she told Sean that she would remarry him if he put $150,000 towards the cause.
Despite their rocky marriage in the ’80s, they’ve clearly stayed close. On stage, Penn agreed to her offer, but in an effort to get the crowd to bid higher, he handcuffed her and crawled through her legs.
“For once, he’s not the one being arrested,” she joked to the star-studded audience, which included Leonardo DiCaprio, Chris Rock, James Corden, Courtney Love, David Blaine, Dave Chappelle and Bethenny Frankel. In fact, Frankel caught a few great moments and posted them on her Snapchat.
Shanghai Surprise! She’s still in love with him! OK, maybe she was joking, or just trying to drum up more bids, but come on! Enough time has gone by for this to work, right? Madge auctioned off several Herb Ritts-shot photographs of her and Sean from back in the day, along with some other awesome items like costumes from past tours.
The night fetched $7.5 million for Malawi, reports the AP. Now let’s see if Madonna and Sean will keep their word and make all our dreams come true.
The ‘Dawson’s Creek’ reunion we waited 13 years for finally happened
It’s the Creek reunion we’ve been hankering for. No, no, not Pacey and Joey (though we’d love to see Katie Holmes and Joshua Jackson together again). Michelle Williams was at a holiday party hosted by Matt Damon and who did she run into? Why, James Van Der Beek. Of all the shindigs in all of Los Angeles …
According to E! Online, it’s been 13 years since the actors were photographed together and while time has flown by, these two still look as adorable as ever. We’ll never forget.
Trump slams SNL for a sketch about his tweeting … on Twitter
Donald Trump just doesn’t know when to NOT engage. Alec Baldwin was back on Saturday Night Live, this time for a sketch about the president-elect’s Twitter love.
It starts off in a classroom, where a student named Seth was retweeted by Trump, much to the surprise of the teacher. It was a case of art imitating life as Donald had retweeted a teenager named Seth, who attacked CNN for its coverage of Trump’s false claims that millions of people voted illegally.
Alec’s Trump lauded Seth, referring to the teen’s Twitter bio and his love of the Anaheim Ducks. Kate McKinnon‘s Kellyanne Conway defended Trump, saying he’s tweets up a storm “to distract the media from his business conflicts and all the very scary people in his cabinet.”
The sketch continued, with Trump going through Twitter instead of paying attention during a national security briefing.
Needless to say, Trump wasn’t happy and expressed his displeasure. Unsurprisingly, on Twitter.
Just tried watching Saturday Night Live – unwatchable! Totally biased, not funny and the Baldwin impersonation just can’t get any worse. Sad

Baldwin had a response of his own.
Release your tax returns and I’ll stop.

Your move, Donald.
The reason for Kanye’s breakdown: mismanaged meds
Kanye West has been out of the hospital for nearly a week and now we know why he was hospitalized in the first place. TMZ reports that the stress of Kim‘s robbery in Paris caused him to mess up his meds, which sent him spiralling out of control.
According to TMZ, Kanye’s psychological issues have long been managed by medication, but he went off his prescribed dosage and that’s when all the trouble began. Once doctors were able to stabilize him, he was released from UCLA Medical Center. But it’s not all rest and recovery.
Us Weekly is reporting that Kim is keeping the kids away from their father, likely until she knows he’s back to his old self.
“It’s just been hell for them,” a source told Us. “Kanye’s behaviour took a huge toll on their marriage. But Kim feels relieved he is getting the help he needs. She thinks this is what it will take to save him — and help their marriage.” Here’s hoping.
Here’s how Scott Disick won Kourtney K. back
The only question on fans’ minds wasn’t if Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick were going to get back together but when. And turns out, it’s been a few months. They’re still not living together, E! News reports, but Scott finally changed his ways and Kourtney softened her stance.
“Scott has just been over the partying. He got sick of it and decided to clean up his act,” the insider explained. “Their love for each other never went away. He’s been trying to win Kourtney over for a while now, but his constant partying was a huge issue. He’s been spending a lot more time with Kourtney and the kids and proving himself to show that his family is the priority.”
Like Khloe and Kim before her, it’s Kourtney who is the cause for Scott’s change in attitude. “He’s doing his best to keep himself in check,” a source said. “Kourtney is definitely the reason for that. He still has his own place, but he loves her. He’s always loved her and wanted his family back together. They’re best friends—that’s never changed, even when things were rough between them.”
Makes for perfect TV, doesn’t it?
