JIMMY FALLON: War With Trump Rages on Another Day
Jimmy Fallon's Twitter war with President Trump has moved from social media to television.
After exchanging a couple of tweets Sunday night, they took shots at each other in front of live audiences Monday. Speaking at a campaign rally in South Carolina, Trump brought up the Tonight show host, asking, "Did you see Jimmy Fallon? The guy screws up my hair, he's going back and forth. He was so disappointed to find out it was real, he couldn't believe it."
Trump was referencing the 2016 interview in which Fallon playfully messed up Trump's hair. Fallon recently said he regretted doing it because it "normalized" him. During last night's monologue, Fallon joked about the feud, saying, "The President of the United States went after me on Twitter. So if you're watching, Melania, I don't think your anti-bullying campaign is working."
The President's attack on late night TV didn't end with Fallon. He also went after Late Show host Stephen Colbert, calling him "a lowlife," and said Jimmy Kimmel used to "stand outside on the sidewalk waiting for me" before Trump ran for office. He then asked the crowd, "I mean, honestly, are these people funny? I can laugh at myself. Frankly, if I couldn't I'd be in big trouble. But they're not, like, talented people." (USA Today)
KHLOÉ KARDASHIAN: Flaunts Apology Ring
Tristan Thompson spent a chunk of his NBA money on an apology ring.
TMZ published photos of Tristan on a dinner date with Khloé Kardashian, who flaunted her new diamond ring.
She’s taken him back despite the serial cheating while she was pregnant. Khloe described in a tweet yesterday (Monday) the struggle to accept his apologies and “the enormous rebuilding this takes to even co-exist. I'm proud of my strength.”
She wore the new diamond on her left ring finger. Some have speculated it’s an early birthday gift or even an engagement ring. Doubtful. They’re good, but it’s far too soon for those two committing for a lifetime. (People)
KATY PERRY: Famous Name Is Worthless in Scotland
The name Katy Perry doesn’t go very far in Scotland.
Last Saturday night, she couldn’t get a table at any of Glasgow’s finest restaurants. Slipping the hostess a hundred didn’t seem to help, either. When faced with rejection, Katy turned to comfort food – Taco Bell.
She told the story on stage, (quote) “I searched for the top 25 places for dinner. Some are really fancy and sit only 10 people. I called a couple of places and couldn’t get in. Listed at the very bottom of dinner places was Taco Bell -- so I went there.” (The Scottish Sun)
DEMI LOVATO: Matching Tattoos With Squad
Demi Lovato marked her relapse with a fresh tattoo.
On Monday, she shared on Instagram story a photo of her management team with “FREE” inked on their fingers. Demi captioned the photo, (quote) “The team that tats together stays together.”
It’s clear that her inner circle supports Demi. They’re with her thick and thin. In recent weeks, things had been bleak around Demi. With the release of “Sober,” she’s announced a fresh start on the road to recovery.
Demi’s hairstylist, César Ramirêz, posted to his Instagram account, (quote) “Everyone deserves to speak their truth! Love is accepting someone for who they are and for who they are not! #free #Spirits.” A member of the Philymack management team said, (quote) “That moment when you realize you’re living your dream with the people you love #free.” (People)

JERSEY SHORE: Ronnie Ortiz-Magro's Baby Mama Arrested in Domestic Disupte
Jersey Shore star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and his baby mama Jen Harley took their domestic squabbles to another level when she allegedly dragged him with her car.
Us Weekly says that "things went south when they started arguing during the drive home" from a barbecue. A source explains, “Jen hit Ronnie in the face during the argument, and he asked [her to] pull over and let him out of the car. She stopped, and Ronnie tried getting out and got caught in his seatbelt. Jen started driving away, dragging Ronnie. Ariana was in the car at the time in the back seat… Ronnie’s face was bloodied and bruised, and he’s got a nasty road rash.”
Jen was arrested Sunday in Las Vegas and booked for domestic violence.
TMZ says the couple's two-month-old daughter, Ariana, was in the car at the time.
Earlier this month, Jen allegedly spit on Ronnie and punched him in the head. And in April the two also got into a nasty fight caught on video.

FLORENCE AND THE MACHINE: Flo Talks Lifestyle Change
Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine has opened up about her former hard drinking and partying lifestyle.
Speaking to Britain's The Guardian, the singer describes how things got out of hand during a period when she and her music were seemingly everywhere. The drinking and partying was her way of coping with it. She admits she was "drunk a lot of the time, on extra dirty Martinis," her way of drinking "three shots at once."
She explains that the partying was about "not wanting to deal with the fact [that her] life had changed, not wanting to come down." She describes going on two-day binges where she'd return home and not know where she'd been. She says it "always felt like something had picked me up and thrown me around various rooms and houses, then gone ‘boom!’ It happened every time, and every time it was shocking.”
She says she finally decided to sober up as she was approaching her career's 10th anniversary last year. She claims that when she realized she could perform without the booze it was "a revelation. There’s discomfort and rage, and the moment when they meet is when you break open. You’re free.”
