Security freed Britney Spears from bathroom
Actually, Britney Spears, 39, wanted to take a nightly bath on a Hawaii vacation with boyfriend Sam Asghari, 27. Instead, the singer lived through anxious moments that could easily pass as a metaphor for her life. On her Instagram profile, she writes down her frightening experience. “At 2 a.m., I decided to take a bath,” she begins her lines, which she shares to a photo of a slightly open wooden door. When she wants to get her face wash from another bathroom, the door can no longer be opened. “The lock was jammed! I was locked in the s*** bathroom and my boyfriend was asleep,” Britney says.
Not even an earthquake can wake her boyfriend when he sleeps, she explains. So he heard their calls only after the fourth attempt. “He tried to open the door with a pen … so I called the security service,” the American continues. Again and again she is put off, someone is about to come. After Britney bridges the waiting time with cleaning, she suddenly seems to experience a kind of revelation. “Then I saw them … the door … I looked at it for the first time with the desire to open it,” are the profound words of the pop star, who is currently taking action against his father’s guardianship. “My eyes widened and the door became clearer… Wider… I could see them with clarity and brightness… please open the door.” Then, finally, the door was opened by the security personnel. Miley Cyrus puts it in a nutshell in her comment under her colleague’s post: “You really liberated Britney!”

Jenna Dewan raises allegations against her ex Channing Tatum
Jenna Dewan, 40, and Channing Tataum, 41, have been divorced since 2019, but daughter Everly will connect the two actors forever. In an interview, the 40-year-old now remembers the beginnings with her daughter – and becomes quite reproachful towards her ex. Channing left her alone with Everly at the time, Jenna says. “I had to travel with her, Chan couldn’t accompany us at the time. So me, my Doula and Evie were traveling all by themselves when she was six weeks old,” recalls the Hollywood actor on the podcast “Dear Gabby”. Jenna Dewan likes to remember the first few months with Everly today, but they were by no means easy. “I had them with me on set all the time. It was just very difficult… It was as if I never had a single minute of rest. You often wake up at night and then you work all day. I breastfed, I pumped, I was without a partner. It was just crazy,” says the 40-year-old.
Ellen Pompeo breaks new ground after “Grey’s Anatomy”
Ellen Pompeo, 51, announces on the podcast “Ladies First” that she wants to turn her back on acting after the end of the hit series “Grey’s Anatomy”. Accepting another role is out of the question for the “Meredith” actress. She would rather devote herself to a new project, she told presenter Laura Brown. “I’m not saying I’ll never act again, I can be very good. But I’m not necessarily crazy about continuing my acting career,” she said. “I think more entrepreneurial at this stage. I look forward to investing in companies and starting a business. This is a growth area that I’m excited about and where I can use my brain in a different way.”
Acting no longer seems to have any incentives for Ellen. “Sitting around in caravans, traveling around, shooting in Atlanta, shooting in Vancouver. I don’t feel like staying in caravans at 11am sitting and waiting to shoot scenes and for recording managers to knock on my door and tell me when I can have lunch. You know, it’s for the young at heart. It’s for the youth!”.
Now the time seems to have come for the actress to break new ground. She remains curious and does not shy away from unknown adventures. Her own podcast entitled “Tell me” is her current heart project. She apparently had only one thought: “Let me go out and do something I’ve never done before, and try something completely different for absolutely no other reason than to try something else because I haven’t done it for so long,” she explained her motivation, and despite all the excitement, remains quite calm: “If it fails, it fails, but at least I try something new.”

Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively now wear “more comfortable shoes”
The fact that Hollywood relationships last ten years is not a matter of course. However, Ryan Reynolds, 44, and Blake Lively, 33, have reached that milestone. On August 1, 2021, they celebrated their tenth anniversary – with a sweet tradition as they reveal. On the occasion of their anniversary, the actor couple went out to eat at the sushi restaurant “O Ya” in Boston. That’s where their love story began. “If it weren’t for this place, we wouldn’t be together. No kidding,” the “Gossip Girl” star wrote in his Instagram story. “No restaurant means to us anymore.”
Ryan Reynolds shared a selfie of himself with his sweetheart in his arms in front of the restaurant. “Our favorite restaurant with her fourth favorite date,” he joked as usual. After all, the two are known for regularly taking each other on the net. So he shares the same snapshot again a little later, this time with a further excerpt, and wrote about his own face: “Post this again because I had cut out my wife’s cute earrings. She taught me. Sorry if I disappointed anyone.”
The 33-year-old replied in her story only with a cheeky “That’s right”. For her date, the mother of three chose a white dress with black dots and button placket to black, flat sandals, the “Deadpool” star wore a patterned, dark blue shirt and chino pants with bright sneakers. “10 years later. We’re still going on our ‘first date,'” Blake said of a photo of them from head to toe in a living room, adding, “But in much more comfortable shoes.”
