Former That ’70s Show stars Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher welcomed their first child together on Tuesday. According to TMZ, Kunis was admitted to Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles on Tuesday morning and gave birth to a baby girl. The Hollywood power couple and frequent Los Angeles Laker game attendees began dating in 2012 and got engaged earlier this year. This is the first child for both; Kutcher played stepfather to Demi Moore‘s daughters during his six-year marriage to the actress. Of course what really makes this news cute is remembering that Kutcher was Kunis’ first kiss IRL. Aww.

Amanda Bynes is in trouble again. Following the news of her recent DUI arrest, Bynes has reportedly been expelled from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) last month for constantly showing up to class high and getting into too many fights. The sad news comes after she tweeted photos of her FIDM runway debut back in March.
TMZ reports that the actress was constantly causing a disturbance in class by laughing at inappropriate moments. She ditched school often but when she did show up, she would wear over-sized sunglasses to cover up the fact that she was always stoned. She even paid other students to do her work for her and threw a huge fit when she called caught cheating off of another student.
Watch as The Gossip Table break down the effects of her DUI arrest. Let us know if you think Bynes can recover from her latest setback in the comments below.

Jordin Sparks has been one of my absolute favorites stars ever since way back in her American Idol days! So thank God she was at the VH1 offices today to promote her new movie Left Behind, and thank God even more that I was there to stalk her in an elevator and ask her just about everything possible!!!!
She was so nice and sweet, and totally approachable and fun! She told me all about her character Shasta’s struggles in Left Behind, which is a movie all about the rapture. Eek, scary!!! Luckily we had her amazing body of musical work to lighten the mood. She even let me in on a little secret: She’s working on new music and we should expect it very soon! I CANT WAIT!!!! I just love her so much!
Rosamund Pike, the star of the highly anticipated film, Gone Girl, is about to get a lot of attention for her standout role as Amy Elliott Dunne, a disillusioned housewife who suddenly disappears on her fifth wedding anniversary. The part is one intense (and showy) role, and will surely stick with audiences well after the end credits stop rolling.
With all the buzz coming her way, it’s a good time to get to know the 35-year-old English actress making a big splash Stateside.
She’s a Bond Girl
While this is definitely her biggest role, it’s hardly her first. The actress’ first big screen part was Miranda Frost, a villainous Bond Girl in Pierce Brosnan’s final James Bond film Die Another Day. She was the 68th actress to be featured as a woman who finds herself entangled with the famed British spy.
And She Can Act
She followed the splashy role with parts in more serious films, including An Education, Fracture with Ryan Gosling and Anthony Hopkins, and Joe Wright’s Pride & Prejudice. During that time she also picked up a British Independent Film Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in The Libertine, co-starring Johnny Depp.
She Modeled Amy After Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy
The role of Amy Elliott Dunne is a tricky one. It’s equal parts the perfectly charming and beautiful Stepford wife and conniving manipulator. For inspiration, Pike turned to John F. Kennedy, Jr.’s stoic yet picture perfect wife. While there was nothing deceitful about Bessette-Kennedy, she did maintain a distance at times that made her more alluring. “There’s not much out there about her. You never heard her speak,” Pike tells Entertainment Weekly. “You just see those pictures of her hiding her face. The way she moved—I used quite a lot of that body language and mood.”
She’s a Household Name — In England
As a testament to her strong line of work, the actress is quite popular in her home country of England. It’s only on this side of the pond that she’s relatively unknown and according to EW, she’d like to keep it that way — at least for now. “American audiences will likely have no preconceived notions of what she may or may not be capable of,” writes Chris Lee. She certainly has the element of surprise when it comes to the movie — but we’ve spoiled that for you.
This Is Not the Last You’ll See of Her
Aside from Gone Girl, which opens nationwide on Oct. 3, Pike can be seen in the 2014 BBC comedy, What We Did on Our Holiday, with Billy Connolly and Doctor Who‘s David Tennant. She also teamed up with her The World’s End co-star Simon Pegg for this year’s rom-com, Hector and the Search for Happiness. Trust us when we say these films will show a much lighter side of her.
Gone Girl is in theaters on October 3.

With all of the new good looking boy meets good looking girl television shows being added to your already jam-packed TV schedule (no judgement), you may be wondering: How the hell do I tell these shows apart? While it’s clear networks are taking a deeper dive into the chaotic world of dating and the struggles that come with it (thank you, technology), we’re giving you a breakdown of TV’s newest rom-coms to help you decide which one is for you. Because, let’s be honest, you won’t watch them all to decide. Ain’t nobody got time for that.
Take a look at network TV’s newest rom-coms to find out which ones tickle your rom-com enthusiast fancy.
Selfie (ABC, Tuesdays at 8 ET)
Watch if you like: Confessions of a Shopaholic
The show tells the story of Eliza (Karen Gillan), a self-absorbed, social media-obsessed millennial who comes to find that her time obsessing over “likes” has left her without any real-life friends. Warning: Isla’s Shopaholic character is a lot more lovable than Eliza, who you will want to punch in the face. To become more likable IRL, she enlists Henry (John Cho) to teache her how to break superficial habits and become more of a decent human being. Here’s hoping she’s less annoying as the season progresses, and that she and Henry’s love connection (which is alluded to in the first episode) will eventually defrost her narcissistic heart.
Manhattan Love Story (ABC, Tuesdays at 8:30 ET)
Watch if you like: He’s Just Not That Into You
What’s unique about Manhattan is that we constantly hear the main players’ thoughts. The show follows two single New Yorkers, Dana (Analeigh Tipton) and Peter (Jake McDorman), and, you guessed it, their story about falling in love. What makes the show entertaining is the naked truths that play out in these characters’ minds — thoughts we can probably all relate to and have had ourselves at one point or another. Similar to Justin Long‘s truthful but brutal dating tips in He’s Just Not That Into You, the show attempts to explain what we’re all really thinking while awkwardly conversing with someone new (Example: “Is he looking at my boobs?” and “Can she tell I’m looking at her boobs?”). This is a good show for you if you’re on the market and want to know you’re not alone in the battlefield we call modern dating.
A to Z (NBC, Thursdays Oct. 2 at 9:30 ET)
Watch if you like: 500 Days of Summer
Like 500 Days before it, the show opens up with voice over explaining the fate of a the featured couple (“Let me tell you the story of a couple… This television program is the comprehensive account of their relationship”). Before hearing about their story, which is narrated by a third party, Sons of Anarchy‘s Katey Sagal, you learn that Zelda (Cristin Milioti) and Andrew (Ben Feldman) only date for a definitive amount of time, which is different than your usual happily ever after. Another spin from your average rom-com is the dynamic between Zelda and Andrew, and the fact that she really isn’t buying what he’s selling until he is extremely persistent — similar to Summer (Zooey Deschanel) and Tom (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) in 500 Days. Yes, you know their fate right off the bat. But there’s something interesting about watching two people become a couple and wondering what will eventually cause their downfall. It’s cute, but with comedy that seems a little forced and a story that’s not a “I have to know what happens next,” it seems this show’s shelf life may be shorter than hoped.
Marry Me (NBC, Tues Oct. 14 9 ET)
If you like: Bride Wars
Casey Wilson (Happy Endings) and Ken Marino (Party Down) are irresistible as Annie and Jake, a young couple going through the chaos of marriage proposals (yes, plural) and all of the awkward in-laws and miscommunication in between. Writer David Caspe (Happy Endings) does a great job at making this an actual comedy, as the couple has a self-aware “we’re a shit show!” tone about them without being too mushy, making it something your hubby may even enjoy with you. Similar to Kate Hudson‘s character in Bride Wars, Annie is a neurotic bride-to-be, which can sometimes be annoying, but Jake’s unconditional love and frequent eye-rolling — like Steve Howey‘s Bride character Daniel — create an endearing dynamic that’s worth sticking around for. Plus, familiar faces such as Tim Meadows (Mean Girls), Dan Bucatinsky (Scandal), and John Gemberling (Broad City) make for a great supporting cast.

Summer may be over but these celebs are just heating things up. Of course, the usual suspects like Nicki Minaj, Kim Kardashian, and Miley Cyrus proudly showed their lady lumps on social media this month, but don’t underestimate others like cast members from Orange Is the New Black, Lea Michele, and Serena Williams, who gave them a run for their money.
This month also proved that sexy selfies aren’t just for the ladies. Nick Jonas, Joe Manganiello, and Trey Songz gave us a good, long look at their… arms and abs. Not that we’re complaining. Hop into the gallery above for the hottest of the hot in Twitpics and Instagrams this month and prepare to be just a little hot and bothered. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
Need some help taking sexy selfies of your own? Allow Sports Illustrated model and Carl’s Jr. spokeswoman Hannah Ferguson to give you some pointers.

Women everywhere are in awe of Amal Alamuddin, the woman who finally snagged George Clooney. Obviously, she must be an amazing woman, but who is exactly is the Hollywood star’s new wife? In the clip above, our Gossip Table panelists tell you all you need to know about Alamuddin. They even compare her to one of modern history’s most stylish women! The Gossip Table also reveals which magazine will feature a wedding photo on its cover.
