Alabama Barker Says She ‘Loves’ Kourtney Amid Shanna Feud

Bonding big time! Travis Barker‘s daughter, Alabama Barker, sent love to his girlfriend, Kourtney Kardashian, amid her ongoing feud with her mom, Shanna Moakler.

On Friday, May 21, the 15-year-old shared an Instagram Story video in which she opened up a pastry box to reveal a beautiful white cake with strawberries on top. “@kourtneykardash [red heart emoji] [you],” the teen captioned the footage.

This isn’t the first time the Blink-182 rocker’s daughter has received a gift from his new girlfriend, with whom he went Instagram official in February. Since Alabama’s dad, 45, and the Poosh founder, 42, began dating in December 2020, the blonde beauty has shown off sweatsuits, loaves of bread and collagen powders that the reality star gifted her.

While Alabama appears to be forming a bond with Kourtney, she seems to be experiencing a rift in her relationship with her biological mother, Shanna.

On May 15, Alabama took to her Instagram Stories to reveal how she feels about her mother, 46, amid tensions. “Everybody thinks my mother is amazing,” she wrote at the time. “My mom has never completely been in my life. Can you guys stop painting her out to be an amazing mom? Did your moms ask to see you on Mother’s Day [because] mine didn’t? I’m done keeping it a secret, reality shows.”

Later, she told fans via TikTok that she tried “multiple times” to get her mother to have dinner with her for the holiday “and she said let’s go to dinner another day.”

Alabama’s older brother, Landon Barker, also opened up about his relationship with the former Miss USA in a clapback comment to a social media user. “You don’t know [how] my mom treats her kids. She wasn’t even there on my birthday and she didn’t spend Mother’s Day with us,” the 17-year-old wrote. “What a great mom! I’m actually very grateful for my dad because he’s been there for me like no one else. Please stay out of situations you know absolutely nothing about. Thank you very much.”

He previously called out his mother in a TikTok comment response to a troll who claimed the teens were treating their mom like “trash” online. “Actually, if you weren’t such a dumbass, you would realize our mom has never been in our lives and isn’t in our lives like our dad is,” he wrote on May 14.

Shanna addressed the drama with her children in an exclusive interview with Life & Style. “What mother wants to have their child upset with them? What mother wants to hear their children say such horrible things?” she said on May 19. “It’s just sad, but I understand they’re teenagers. They’re being influenced by numerous people, who are very calculating, very manipulative, and there’s nothing I can do except just be there for them [and] love them.”

‘SATC’ Items in Show’s Revival | #Lifestyle

'SATC' Items in Show's Revival

Carrie Bradshaw had a massive closet, along with a huge accessory collection. So, it comes as no surprise that Sarah Jessica Parker has already been seen wearing items seen on Sex and the City in the show’s HBO MAX revival, And Just Like That.

While Patricia Fields was the costumer on all six seasons of the show as well as the two feature films that followed, her successor Molly Rogers is doing a fantastic job of pulling pieces that are both iconic, as well as obscure, for the new series.

As the revival’s filming is underway in New York City, the most surprising item from Carrie’s closet to reappear is the Manolo Blahnic “Hangisi” blue satin jewel buckle pumps that she wore to wed “Mr. Big” John Preston in during the final moments of the first film.

Chris Noth‘s character even slipped one of the shoes on Carrie’s foot to re-propose to her in the movie. The iconic footwear proved to be better than any diamond ring.

Another accessory that played a big part of Carrie and Big’s relationship has also made a reappearance. In the first film, Sarah Jessica was wearing a Streets Ahead USA black leather and silver studded “Roger” belt along with a pink sheath dress when she broke the news to Miranda, Charlotte and Samantha that she and Big has decided to get married.

In And Just Like That, the belt is back! SJP wore it along with a pink Carolina Herrera shirt dress while filming scenes on July 20, along with costars Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis. Thirteen years since it was last seen, the belt still looks just as chic as it did in the 2008 movie.

Fans either loved or loathed Carrie’s fondness for oversized floral lapel pins in Sex and the City season 3. The look is back in the new series, as SJP was photographed wearing a massive blue rose-shaped lapel pin while shooting a scene on July 23. The accessory was a trademark in her first round of dating John Corbett’s Aiden Shaw, so perhaps it’s a precursor that Carrie and Aiden’s love story could see a new chapter.

“I’m going to do the show,” John confirmed to Page Six in April, adding being part of the revival is “very exciting” for him. And the actor isn’t just making a cameo, as he told the site, “I think I might be in quite a few,” when asked how many episodes he will appear in.

Bachelorette Katie Thurston's 'Men Tell All': Recap, Drama

Bachelorette star Katie Thurston’s Men Tell All special on Monday, July 26, brought the drama. A recap of the most shocking moments involve contestants Thomas JacobsKarl SmithHunter Montgomery and more. 

The Men Tell All special was filmed on Thursday, July 15, and there were a few notable faces missing, including Thomas, Mike Planeta and finalists Greg Grippo and Blake Moynes. Of course, there were plenty of fan favorites in attendance like Andrew SpencerMichael Allio and Connor Brennan.

Season 17 has been getting more intense as the weeks go on, especially considering Katie, 30, admitted she “[fell] in love more than once” during an interview with Entertainment Tonight on June 7.

“Nothing’s off limits this season. Love is love, and I gotta do what I gotta do,” the Washington native admitted. While she stayed hush-hush about her current relationship status (see spoilers here), she was open about what goes down during fantasy suite dates.

“I have sex in the fantasy suites, so you heard it here first. We all know it happens, but no one’s talking about it!” Katie divulged. 

“I’m embracing who I am, and if a guy can’t accept me being sex-positive or talking about sex, it’s just not gonna work out,” the TikTok star explained. “There are some people who are a little traditional and old school, but people around my age and younger, we’re here for it. It’s 2021, embrace your sexuality and be an empowered woman.”

A source previously told Us Weekly that Katie’s season wrapped a whole week early thanks to her decisiveness throughout the process, but that’s not to say it was an easy journey

In early June, an insider told Life & Style the leading lady “threatened to quit” at one point over the “drama-filled” season. 

“It’s definitely an emotional roller coaster for Katie. She doesn’t hold back and will tell it like it is … It really got to her and she couldn’t take it anymore,” the insider said at the time. “She just walked away from cameras. She kept changing how she felt and her thoughts were all over the place. You will see later on this season how difficult it was for her.”

'Rooting for' Joe, Noah on 'BIP'

Cheering from afar! Bachelorette alum Bennett Jordan exclusively tells Life & Style who he’s “rooting for” this season of Bachelor in Paradise

“I really, really am rooting for all of them,” the season 16 contestant says while promoting his collaboration with luxury footwear brand Del Toro for his Sage Suede Milano Loafer

However, the New Yorker notes he especially hopes his close friends from the franchise, including Dr. Joe ParkRiley Christian and Ed Waisbrot, find love while they’re on the beach. 

That being said, the wealth management consultant has buried the hatchet with Noah Erb, whom he butted heads with during Clare Crawley and Tayshia Adams’ season. Bennett assures he doesn’t have “beef” or “animosity” toward anyone. 

“Noah and Abigail [Heringer], that would be an awesome couple [on Paradise]. I’d be super excited for them,” Bennett says. “I could see that. Honestly, I’ve met Abigail, and I could see there being some attraction there. If they’re attracted to each other, I could see some personalities matching, and they could be a really, really fun couple.” 

While he’s not sure if they would “go the distance,” the former contestant admits “you never know.”

Bennett was a fan favorite during season 16, and many fans were surprised when he wasn’t announced on the cast list for BIP. The Georgia native says his absence came down to a “timing thing.”

“I think it was a mutual decision that it just didn’t really make sense — both from the standpoint of the females that were apparently going as well as just the things I had going on from a business standpoint. I’m really busy with work,” explains Bennett, while adding he “believes” people can fall in love on the reality dating show. 

“From my experience, it has to make sense, though. And it has to position me for success,” he continues. “It probably just wasn’t the right fit for me at this time to go on Paradise … That wasn’t going to be the most fruitful usage of my time this summer.”

That’s not to say he will never appear in Bachelor Nation again. Bennett says he would “be open” to doing something else in the future. 

In the meantime, he’s been brainstorming his own Bachelor spinoff show where the lead goes on a “massive road trip” across the country, going on dates and traveling with potential contestants. “The idea is you get that quality time that you don’t get in The Bachelor or The Bachelorette to spend [with someone],” he explains.

Camila Cabello’s Workout Routine Is Totally Relatable

Stars, they’re just like us. Camila Cabello gave fans an inside look at her workout routine — and it was refreshingly relatable!

“Y’all know this feeling?” the “Havana” singer, 24, captioned a selfie via Instagram on Sunday, July 25. In the photo, Camila made a funny face to showcase her exhaustion with all of her exercise equipment in the background.

In recent weeks, Camila has made it a point to be extremely forthcoming with her followers about health, fitness and body positivity. “I was just running in the park minding my own business trying to be fit, trying to keep it healthy. And I am wearing a top that shows my belly,” the former Fifth Harmony member began a July 16 TikTok after photos of her out and about went viral.

“And I wasn’t tucking it in, because I was running and existing like a normal person that doesn’t tuck it in all the time. And I was like, ‘Damn.’ But then I reminded myself being at war with your body is so last season,” Camila added. “I am grateful for this body that lets me do what I need to do. We are real women with curves and cellulite and stretch marks and fat. And we gotta own that, baby.”

To hammer home her point, Camila concluded the video by singing the En Vogue lyrics, “Giving him something he can feel,” while running her hand up her stomach.

Not only does Camila’s stance on body positivity help her followers, but also her boyfriend, Shawn Mendes. “[Camila is] so strong, so clear and confident with her [body] and so articulate and empathetic about other people’s,” the “Stitches” artist, 22, said during a November 2020 interview with British GQ. “It really changed my view of mine. It really changed my life.” 

Shawn and Camila first met while touring with Austin Mahone in 2014. Despite sparking dating rumors a number of times over the years, the A-list pair didn’t confirm their romantic relationship until September 2019, and they’ve been going strong ever since! “Happy Anniversary, Kuko. Here’s to more joy, more friendship and more love,” Camila captioned a series of PDA-packed photos with Shawn in early July.

Simone Biles’ Boyfriend Jonathan Owens Supports Her at Olympics | #Lifestyle

Simone Biles' Boyfriend Jonathan Owens Supports Her at Olympics

Watching from afar! Gymnast Simone Biles’ boyfriend, Jonathan Owens, stayed up all night to watch her during the Tokyo Olympics during the early hours of Sunday, July 25. 

At 1:13 a.m., the football player, 26, shared a video via Instagram Stories that showed Simone, 24, in her Team U.S.A. uniform during the Olympic qualifying rounds for gymnastics.

“Almost that time,” the Houston Texans safety wrote with a fingers crossed emoji to caption a post from Gymnastics Now calling Simone the “greatest of all time.” Due to coronavirus concerns, spectators, including friends and families of the athletes, were not allowed to attend the Olympics. 

It’s clear the athletic duo are head over heels for each other. The Ohio native is competing for a gold medal during the Games, but she still took a moment to gush over her beau for his birthday on July 21. 

“Here in Japan, it is already my favorite persons birthday. HAPPY 26th BIRTHDAY BABE. @jowens_3, I love you so much,” Simone wrote via Instagram along with seven adorable photos. “Can’t wait to celebrate you when I get home! Thanks for keeping me sane during the craziest times. An ear to vent to, someone to share fun times with and make the best of memories. Not sure how I got so lucky [and] what I’d do without you! But I hope you have the best day ever. Not too much fun without me [though] hahaha. Forever yours, S.”

She added that she was “obsessed” with the athlete in a separate post. Simone and Jonathan took their romance Instagram official in August 2020 just five months after her split from Stacey Ervin Jr., whom she dated for nearly three years. 

“He’s a real man. I love him. We have a great time together,” the Houston resident said about Jonathan during a virtual Today show interview in January 2021. “Our personalities match right up. We have the same sense of humor. He’s just great. He’s an athlete, too, so we really understand each other, and I think that’s why our relationship has been seamless.”

Surprisingly, the St. Louis native didn’t exactly know Simone’s level of fame during the early days of their relationship. “Her work ethic was really the first thing that caught my eye,” he admitted during episode three of the gold medal winner’s Facebook Watch series, Simone vs. Herself. “I never really watched gymnastics before I first started talking to her. When I met her, I honestly didn’t know who she was.”

He added, “It was just like, ‘Oh, she has a lot of followers — she must be pretty good or something.’ That’s how I would tell people and they’d be like: ‘Simone Biles?! You for real, the gymnast?!’ And I’m like, ‘Man, she’s good like that?!’”

Scott Disick's Boat Day With Amelia Gray Hamlin, Penelope

Living the life! Scott Disick cuddled up with girlfriend Amelia Gray Hamlin during a fun boat day with his daughter, Penelope Disick, on Saturday, July 24. 

“Hermés only to swim,” the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 38, captioned a photo of the model, 20, resting her head on his chest while they cruised around on a boat. Amelia commented two hearts on fire emojis in response.

The reality star was speaking in reference to the Hermés Avalon throw blanket wrapped around them, which retails from the iconic designer for $1,550. The duo looked extremely cozy in grey sweats for the windy ride.

The couple was joined by the Flip It Like Disick star’s daughter, Penelope, 9. Scott shared a photo on his Instagram Story of P wrapped up underneath the same blanket while her dad kissed her on the head.

“Pinop,” he captioned a second photo of the sweet girl smiling while she looked over the windshield of the boat. He also shares sons Mason and Reign with ex Kourtney Kardashian

Scott and Amelia first sparked romance rumors in October 2020 when they attended Kendall Jenner’s Halloween party together. 

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star’s mother, Lisa Rinna, admitted to pal Erika Jayne that she was “a lot nervous” about her youngest daughter’s relationship with Scott, who is 18 years her senior. When she found out they were involved, the reality mom called it a “what the f—k moment.” 

“We’re thinking it’s a phase, right? It’s a phase, I don’t want to bring attention to it,” the Melrose Place star said about her and husband Harry Hamlin’s reaction to the surprising romance. “Should I text Kris [Jenner] and be like, ‘Welp …,’ I’ve done nothing in other words because I also don’t want to bring any attention to it.”

Scott and Amelia seem to still be going strong. For her birthday in June, the New York native gifted his girlfriend a diamond cross necklace. Days later, he purchased her a Saddle II, Paris 1976 vintage silver gelatin print by Helmut Newton, TMZ reported.

The $57,000 photography print cost the reality star a whopping $57,000, which he used EthereumPay cryptocurrency to purchase. 

The feeling is definitely mutual. For Scott’s birthday in May, Amelia did not hold back gushing over her beau.

“Happy birthday, my love. You light up my life and make my world better. I can’t imagine what I would do without you,” she wrote via Instagram, along with sharing several cute photos of the pair. “Thank you for being you. The most caring, loving, special person on this planet. I’m so lucky. I’m so blessed to have met you. I love you.”
