Savannah Guthrie gives birth to baby girl
‘Today’ show co-anchor Samantha Guthrie and her husband, Mike Feldman, announced the birth of their first child, Vale Guthrie Feldman, Thursday morning. Born on Wednesday, Aug. 13, Vale weighs 8 lbs. and 5 oz. and is 19.5 inches long, and has already made her TV debut: her parents shared photos of the newborn with the “Today” show. “My 3am wake up call sounds a lot different now. Sweeter…” tweeted Guthrie.
The couple got married on Saturday, March 15, 2014 in Tucson, Ariz., Guthrie’s hometown. Guthrie announced both the wedding and the fact that she was four months pregnant on-air the following Monday.
Kim Kardashian West plays ‘Plead the Fifth’
Kim Kardashian West went on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” on Wednesday night and chatted with Andy Cohen about everything from a potential sibling for little North West to her biggest regret: the short-lived singing career she attempted a couple of years ago. “What gave me the right to think I could be a singer?” she said.
She also took a “butt selfie” with Cohen and survived a round of “Plead the Fifth,” choosing to answer questions about her brother Rob’s love life (she would rather have “The Real’s” Adrienne Bailon as a sister-in-law than Roc Nation singer Rita Ora) and Kanye’s rants (she’s never embarrassed by them), and “pleading the fifth” when asked how musicians compared to professional athletes in bed.
Kim wasn’t the only West making news on Wednesday. Earlier that day, CR Fashion Book posted a preview photo from North West’s first fashion shoot. Wearing a Chanel bag and brooch and Lorraine Schwartz earrings, the 13-month-old will be featured in their upcoming fall issue.
The cast of Broadway’s ‘Aladdin’ honors Robin Williams
After a Tuesday performance, Tony Award-winning actor James Monroe Iglehart, who plays “Genie” in the Broadway adaptation of “Aladdin,” led the cast and audience in a sing-a-long of “Friend Like Me.”
On Wednesday, Igleheart gave a statement to E! News saying, “Although I never got to meet him in person, Robin Williams has influenced my life greatly; his performance as the Genie, of course, and his entire career as a great performer and actor. I’m extremely saddened by his passing but first and foremost my heart, my thoughts and prayers go out to the Williams family. They have lost a husband and father. We as fans have lost one of the greatest entertainers ever.”
Mini-‘Mean Girls’ reunion
Fans of the 2006 Lindsay Lohan comedy will be happy to know that some of the cast members still find time to hang out. Earlier this week, actor Daniel Franzese, who played Damien, posted an Instagram photo of himself with Amy Poehler (Regina George’s mom!) and Lizzy Caplan (Janice Ian!) at the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood with the caption “Celebrating a bday and an Emmy nom last night for one of the greatest people you will ever meet #LizzyCaplan with our girl #AmyPoehler last night at the Chateau Marmont. #meangirls #northshore10yrreunion #damiansyearbook”
Now all he has to do is make a “You go, Glen Coco!” Vine to make it complete.
