The Kill Bill star is breaking her silence.

Uma Thurman took to Instagram on Thursday, Nov. 23, 2017 to wish her followers a Happy Thanksgiving — and to call out disgraced film producer Harvey Weinstein for the first time. While she didn’t clarify whether the Hollywood bigwig had ever acted inappropriately toward her personally, the Pulp Fiction actress did use the popular hashtag #MeToo, which has been used by people to open up about their experiences with sexual harassment and assault.

“I am grateful today, to be alive, for all those I love, and for all those who have the courage to stand up for others,” the 47-year-old captioned a black-and-white photo of herself. “I said I was angry recently, and I have a few reasons, #metoo, in case you couldn’t tell by the look on my face.”

“I feel it’s important to take your time, be fair, be exact, so…Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! (Except you Harvey, and all your wicked conspirators — I’m glad it’s going slowly — you don’t deserve a bullet),” she concluded, before signing off with “stay tuned.”

“For hours I’m trying to find the right words to thank every single one of your for your warm and supportive reactions,” Thurman tweeted after receiving an outpouring of love and support from fans and peers in the industry. “You left me speechless. That tells its own story. Sometimes words aren’t needed. THANKS is all I can say. x.”

As Nicki Swift previously reported, Weinstein was accused of sexual harassment and assault in a shocking exposé published by The New York Times in early October 2017. The piece documented the former Miramax co-founder’s alleged 30-year history of sexual misconduct. Thurman’s frequent collaborator, director Quentin Tarantino, later admitted that he knew about Weinstein’s behavior. “I knew enough to do more than I did,” he told The New York Times. “There was more to it than just the normal rumors, the normal gossip. It wasn’t secondhand….What I did was marginalize the incidents. Anything I say now will sound like a crappy excuse.”

Since the scandal broke, over 60 women have come forward accusing Weinstein of sexual assault and rape, and multiple big shots in the entertainment industry have been accused of sexual misconduct.

The “Malibu” singer is not having those pregnancy rumors.

Miley Cyrus took to Twitter on Thursday, Nov. 23, 2017 to shut down recent reports that she and longtime fiancé, Liam Hemsworth, are expecting their first child together. “RUDE!!! Not pregnant just eating a s**t ton of tufurkey,” the 25-year-old, who also celebrated her birthday this year on Thanksgiving, captioned a photo of herself with an arrow pointing at her stomach.

According to Entertainment Tonight, the rumors began to spread after Cyrus posted a snapshot of herself standing in front of massive silver balloons spelling out her name. “So close to b-day time! Stoked for a day full of Tofurkey & loved ones! Ain’t it ironic? #VeganTurkeyBaby,” she happily wrote in the caption. However, due to her pose, fans assumed the “We Can’t Stop” hitmaker was showing off a baby bump.

But Cyrus, who recently released her latest album, Younger Now, in September, didn’t let the gossip ruin her double holiday. The Voice judge continued sharing festive pictures with her fans, and her birthday presents included a beautiful necklace from her beau, as well as a gorgeous rainbow array of flowers, which she captioned with, “Thankful for another journey around the sun!”

As Nicki Swift previously reported, Cyrus and Hemsworth, 27, met on the set of the 2010 movie The Last Song, and dated on and off before becoming engaged in 2012. While the two broke it off in September 2013, they reunited again in 2016. Cyrus confirmed their engagement that October.

The “Battlefield” singer had a lot to celebrate this Thanksgiving.

Jordin Sparks took to Instagram on Thursday, Nov. 23, 2017 to announce that she and her model husband, Dana Isaiah, are expecting a son. “IT’S A BOY!!!” the soon-to-be-mom revealed, captioning a cute snapshot of the two holding blue confetti. “We have so much to be thankful for and this is definitely at the top of the list! @_danaisaiah’s gonna have a little mini me running around! We can’t wait to meet him. We love you lil man! 💙💙💙💙.”

A post shared by Jordin Sparks (@jordinsparks) on Nov 23, 2017 at 2:09pm PST

As Nicki Swift previously reported, Sparks, 27, surprised fans earlier this month when she announced that she had secretly eloped with Isaiah, 25, in July 2017, and that the two were expecting their first child together. Their little bundle of joy is due sometime in the spring. “We’re both really excited,” the “No Air” singer told People at the time. “He’s been like, ‘I want to shout it from the mountain tops!’ We’re really proud to be married to each other and to be celebrating this.”

“I’d gone through a crazy time last year, so I was just like ‘You know what? I’m good. I’m going to stay single. I’m just not going to look,'” Sparks, who previously dated singer Jason DeRulo, continued. “It’s amazing that that phrase ‘When you don’t look for it, that’s when it comes’…he just showed up at my door.” With her new family, the “Tattoo” singer said, “I’m the most content I’ve ever been in my life.”

Since the announcement, the newlyweds have kept fans in the loop with sweet photos from their proposal and of Sparks’ growing baby bump. “Dad and Mom 😍,” the American Idol alum wrote in the caption of the latter, including the hashtags, “#andababymakes3 #HGA #wearefamily #myhubbyhasaheartofgold.”

Katie Cassidy has broken her silence on her father’s death.

The Arrow actress took to Twitter on Nov. 24, 2017, to mourn the death of her father, David Cassidy, who died of organ failure on Nov. 21, 2017, at the age of 67.

“Words can’t express the solace our family’s received from all the love & support during this trying time,” Cassidy wrote. “My father’s last words were ‘So much wasted time.’ This will be a daily reminder for me to share my gratitude with those I love as to never waste another minute… Thank you.”

As fans of the Partridge Family star know, Katie and her father had a difficult relationship. In February 2017, David opened up to People about not being in his daughter’s life.

“I wasn’t her father. I was her biological father but I didn’t raise her. She has a completely different life,” Cassidy said. “[But] I’m proud of her. She’s very talented. It’s hard for me to even accept how old she is now.”

Cassidy is survived by Katie, son Beau; stepmother Shirley Jones; and brothers Shaun, Patrick and Ryan.

Mariah Carey might not usually want a lot for Christmas, but this year she just wants to be able to kick start her tour.

On doctor’s orders, the Grammy winner has cancelled three more concerts on her All I Want For Christmas Is You Tour. The tour was initially supposed to start on Nov. 27, 2017, but will now begin on Dec. 2, 2017, in New York City.

Carey took to Instagram on Nov. 24, 2017, to explain to her fans that she needs to take a little more time to focus on her health.

“I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving with loved ones; it’s certainly nice to remember what we are grateful for! Like most, I’m thankful for my overall health… for which I need a bit more time to get right,” she wrote. “Doctors have ordered a few extra days of rest before I can finally fly to New York and take the stage for my Christmas Tour.”

“While this news disappoints me to share, I am grateful to be on the mend and for the support from all of you – it means the world to me! See you from the stage soon darlings! ❤, Mariah,” she concluded.

Refunds will be available to fans who purchased tickets for Carey’s concerts on Nov. 27,28 and Dec. 1.

As Nicki Swift previously reported, Carey previously was forced to cancel the first few concerts of her tour due to a respiratory infection.

Willow Smith calls her life ‘terrible’

Willow Smith has not been a fan of growing up in the spotlight.

In an interview released on Nov. 24, 2017, in the debut issue of digital magazine Girlgaze, the daughter of Will Smith and Jade Pinkett Smith opened up about why the grass isn’t always greener on the other side.

When asked about what her life was like growing up as a child with famous parents, the 17-year-old got very candid, saying, “I’m going to be completely and utterly honest, it’s absolutely terrible.”

“Growing up and trying to figure out your life … while people feel like they have some sort of entitlement to know what’s going on, is absolutely, excruciatingly terrible — and the only way to get over it, is to go into it,” Smith said. “You can’t change your face. You can’t change your parents. You can’t change any of those things.”

She continued: “When you’re born into it, there are two choices that you have; I’m either going to try to go into it completely and help from the inside, or…I’m really going to take myself completely out of the eye of society. There’s really no in-between,” she added.

Smith first gained popularity in 2010 when she released her debut song, “Whip My Hair”. It was not until 2012 that Will Smith realized his daughter’s disinterest in fame when she was started shaving her hair instead of whipping it.

“We came downstairs and she had shaved her head bald,” Will recalled in JAY’Z’s “Footnotes for Adnis” video. “She shaved her head bald in the middle of her ‘Whip My Hair’ tour. I was like, ‘Oh, s—t.’ … I’m looking at that girl and I’m like, ‘Got it. I understand. You will not have this trouble out of me ever again. Let’s go, baby. We can go.'”

If you find Willow’s statement about her life odd (or the fact that she shaved off all of her hair to prove a point), you’ve got to read up on some of the craziest things that her brother, Jaden, has said or done.

Jennifer Lawrence says she wants to take a break from acting

Jennifer Lawrence is hoping to return to her roots.

Lawrence, who was raised on a horse farm in Louisville, Kentucky, says she wants to take some time away from the spotlight to … milk goats.

In an interview with Elle released on Nov. 25, 2017, the Oscar winner opened up about her desire to spend time farming rather than filming.

“I want to get a farm,” the actress told the magazine. “I want to be, like, milking goats.”

Seeing as Lawrence has filmed an average of three movies per year for the past seven years, we definitely don’t blame her for wanting to take some time off.

As Nicki Swift previously reported, Lawrence recently split with her director boyfriend Darren Aronofsky after over a year of dating. Who knows, maybe the recent break up also has something to do with Lawrence’s decision to lay low for a little bit.

With her newfound free time, the actress also plans on focusing on her work with Represent.us, a nonprofit group fighting to end political corruption.

While we wait and see if Lawrence has any other plans for her upcoming hiatus, read up on why her future could be in trouble.

Margot Robbie is not a fan of wearing her wedding ring … at least not during the week.

In an interview with Vogue Australia, the I,Tonya actress revealed that even though she’s coming up on her first wedding anniversary with husband Tom Ackerley, she’s not wearing her wedding ring quite as often as one might think.

“That’s the thing, we were best friends and roommates before and now we’re like best friends and roommates still, so nothing’s really changed at all,” Margot said while looking down at her wedding ring. “Other than the fact that I get to wear this on the weekends.”

“I can’t obviously wear it during the week when I’m working,” the 27-year-old explained. “I don’t want to lose it on set.”

The actress shared a shot of the elusive ring on Instagram on Dec. 19, 2016.

A post shared by @margotrobbie on Dec 19, 2016 at 7:56pm PST

The couple, who met in 2013 on the set of the World War II drama Suite Francaise, tied the knot in a top secret ceremony in Australia in Dec. 2016.

The actress was taken into custody on the night of Saturday, Nov. 25, 2017.

Local news station WSAZ reported that Naya Rivera was arrested around 9:30 p.m. in Kanawha County, W. Va. Police had been called to her home for a “domestic situation.” Once there, cops spoke with Rivera’s husband, Ryan Dorsey, who claimed that the 30-year-old had hit him on the head and the bottom lip while they’d been taking a walk with their son, Josey—and he allegedly had video footage to prove it.

According to E! News, Rivera was charged with misdemeanor domestic battery.

After being arrested on Saturday night, Rivera, who starred as Santana Lopez on the hit Fox series Glee, was arraigned the next day sometime after 12 a.m. She was soon released on $1000 bond, and her father-in-law reportedly picked her up from the courthouse.

Early on Nov. 26, WCHS reporter Kalea Gunderson shared a video of Rivera in a courtroom on Twitter.

Rivera and Dorsey married in July 2014, shortly after her breakup with former fiancé Big Sean. She later filed for divorce from her husband in late November 2016. However, in October 2017, Rivera called off their separation, filing for the dismissal of her divorce docs.

“She is back together with Ryan Dorsey,” a source told E! News at the time. “They want to make it work for the sake of their son.”

While we wait for Rivera to comment on the arrest, read up on all of the shady secrets of Glee.

Rance is survived by his sons and granddaughter Bryce Dallas Howard.

Following the news of her grandfather’s death, Bryce took to Instagram to share a poem about death called “Gone From My Sight” by Henry Van Dyke Jr., captioning it, “My grandfather, the patriarch of our family’s favorite poem, he could recite it from heart. I think I’ll do the same now.”

Our thoughts go out to Howard’s family during this difficult time.
