MANIFESTING matrimony? Despite her real-life nuptials being up in the air, Jennifer Lopez was every bit a gorgeous bride on the set of Shotgun Wedding in a photo she posted on Instagram March 19. “Eye on the prize,” the 51-year-old captioned the beachy, wind-swept shot, taken in the Dominican Republic. Perhaps the snap was a wink at March 12 reports claiming she and Alex Rodriguez ended their engagement months after the former slugger, 45, made headlines for allegedly cheating on the singer with reality vet Madison LeCroy. J.Lo and A-Rod denied the split a day later — but he quickly jetted off to the DR to see her. There, a source tells Star, the athlete groveled to salvage their relationship. “Alex is going above and beyond to erase any doubt in Jen’s…

secrets of betty white’s will

She’s going to the dogs! After celebrating a big birthday in January, Betty White, who joked “Since I am turning 99, I can stay up late as I want without asking permission,” is going strong, re-releasing her long-lost 1970s series Pet Set to stream on Apple TV in February. In addition, sources tell Star, the legendary animal lover has been getting her affairs in order, even revising her will. And the beneficiaries of her reported $75 million fortune will have four legs and tails! “There will be some left for family, but the majority of her cash, property and other assets will be kept in trust for her pampered pets,” says an insider. “It’s bound to leave her friends and family, especially her stepkids, speechless.” Wed three times, the Golden Girls…

ellen’s ratings woes

That’s gotta hurt! Days after Ellen DeGeneres’ wife Portia de Rossi underwent an emergency appendectomy, the talk-show host faced reports that her daytime show has lost a whopping one million viewers this season. According to the New York Times, the 63-year-old, who was forced to apologize for a “toxic” work environment this fall and fire three producers after allegations of behind-the-scenes “racisim, fear and intimidation,” has lost 38 percent of her core viewers, women under 54. Not only that, she’s also down around $25 million in ad revenue. Now the onetime Queen of Nice is “in a panic,” a source tells Star. “She’s desperate to bring her ratings back up.” While celebs like Ted Danson (above) are still popping in, the source says Ellen is on the hunt for a…

chris lawyers up!

It’s getting thorny: Chris Harrison offered up a seemingly sincere mea culpa for defending a Bachelor contestant’s racially insensitive behavior to show vet Rachel Lindsay. Or was it? Vowing to “try to evolve and become a better man” the 49-year-old announced in February he would be “stepping aside” from his longtime hosting gig. But it turns out Chris has hired attorney Bryan Freeman — who repped Gabrielle Union in her fight against America’s Got Talent — and sources tell Star he wants his job back! “He feels he’s been unfairly treated by ABC and is worried they’re going to fire him,” says an insider. “He’s ready to go at them with both barrels.” It could get ugly. Adds the insider, “Chris knows a lot of dirt, and he’ll have no…

orlando’s high-maintenance life!

Taking self-care to the max, Orlando Bloom invited some serious online mockery when he shared his exacting daily routine with a U.K. paper March 21. “Genuinely thought the Orlando Bloom interview in The Sunday Times was a spoof,” read one tweet. “Is it really not?” Others compared the fastidious Pirates of the Caribbean star to American Psycho’s skincare-obsessed serial killer. Giving Gwyneth “GOOP” Paltrow a run for her millions, the 44-year-old follows 20 minutes of Buddhist chanting with green powders mixed with brain octane oil, collagen and protein, then goes for a hike before he “earns” his breakfast porridge (made with hazelnut milk, vanilla paste, goji berries and vegan protein powder, naturally!). And unlike those who have embraced a casual WFH look, he said, “I like to make an effort.…

julianne’s divorce makeover!

I’m grateful for my health,” Julianne Hough posted alongside a sunny March 15 selfie sending “love and good energy” to her 4.8 million followers. But many were quick to notice the Dancing with the Stars alum didn’t seem quite herself. “She looks so different in this picture. The lips maybe?” wondered one commenter. Another was more blunt: “Plastic.” Sources tell Star it’s all part of the 32-year-old’s journey after splitting from husband of three years, Brooks Laich, last May. “She felt it was time for something fresh and had some things done,” says an insider. “She’s totally gone Hollywood and is having fun with spray tanning and extensions.” A little too much fun, Michigan-based cosmetic surgeon Anthony Youn tells Star. “Her lips look much larger,” says Youn (who doesn’t treat…
