‘Hey @kanyewest so cool that you’re here at @TheCherShow! If you look up from your cell phone you’ll see we’re doing a show up here. It’s opening night. Kind of a big deal for us. Thanks so much’ —JARROD SPECTOR, who portrays Sonny Bono in Broadway’s The Cher Show, slamming the rapper on Twitter ‘I was like the Punky Brewster of the hood. I was a well-rounded kid, but I could also scrap if necessary. But I wasn’t that hard. I still had Strawberry Shortcake wallpaper in my room’—TARAJI P. HENSON, on growing up in the Washington, D.C., area, to In Style ‘[People say] your life is not your own any more. But I had 39 years of me. I was sick of me. I was so happy to put…

5 things we’re talking about!

1/ Steph Curry’s response to a young girl about his sneakers This girl rocks! When a 9-year-old from California wrote the NBA star asking why his Icon Curry 5s weren’t listed in the girls’ section on Under Armour’s site, he wrote back, “We are correcting this now !” 2/ Hostess snacks getting the breakfast treatment Mornings will get a little (okay, a lot ) sweeter when cereals inspired by Donettes and Honey Buns hit grocery stores in January. 3/ Ariana Grande’s ‘thank u, next’ music video After more than a week of teasing on social media, the pop star released the video for her single, which is an homage to comedy classics like 13 Going on 30, Bring It On, Legally Blonde and Mean Girls—and features a guest appearance by Kris Jenner as Grande’s mom.…

My friends always give me grief about . . . Wearing sweatpants all the time. They’re like, “You’ve got to spruce it up a notch.” But I’m not budging. I’m self-conscious about my . . . Arms. They’re disproportionately larger than the rest of me. The fat hides the muscle well. I have an irrational fear of . . . Throw-up. Anything about it. I have an irrational fear of prison cells too. Can you imagine puke in a cell? I would just pass out. My guilty pleasure is . . . Sweets. I used to be a salts girl, but I moved on to sugar. My arms love it more than I do. My hero is . . . My mom. She’s lived a pretty exemplary life. She really did the most with what she had. What makes me…

matt lauer a year after scandal

One year after Matt Lauer’s ousting from NBC News, the former Today anchor is leading a quiet life outside New York City—a dramatic change from his decades-long career as a globe-trotting newsman. “He’s not doing well,” says a source close to Lauer, 60, who was fired as reports emerged of several incidents of alleged sexual misconduct in the workplace. “He went from being a superbusy person to having nothing but time on his hands.” On Nov. 29, 2017, Lauer’s former Today coworkers Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb announced on-air he had been terminated overnight. (Lauer later admitted to seeing NBC staffers romantically during his tenure at the network but slammed allegations of “coercive, aggressive or abusive actions” as “absolutely false.”) In the 12 months since, the journalist, who is worth a…

weeks until they wed!

The Bachelor’ s Arie Luyendyk and Lauren Burnham have packed a lot into one year. The couple, who got engaged in March, are preparing for their Jan. 12 wedding in Hawaii and expecting a baby in June. “We didn’t really plan it this way, but everything has been very quick in our relationship, so it’s kind of fitting,” says Burnham, 27. “We’ve come full circle!” Now that Burnham has overcome initial morning sickness (“It was really bad,” she says), the couple are prepping for baby while finalizing wedding plans—including selecting rings by jeweler Neil Lane. “I had my eye on it from the beginning,” says Burnham of her 4-carat eternity band, set with more than 200 diamonds. Now the couple are counting down the days until they’re husband and wife.…
