Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus like to keep things chill and casual, by the sounds of things.

The adorable couple married in a quaint living room ceremony at the end of last year, and surprised us all. Miley only had ONE request for the special day, and it's pretty unconventional.

Speaking to E! News at the MusiCares event, she told the outlet that she asked her fiance at the time for "Literally, vegan chicken and dumplings." Alright, then. Each bride to their own.

Miley is a woman of simple taste, and we'll take ANY detail at all about their low-key nuptials. They're a relatable couple, seemingly, but we'd definitely be more picky about the dress than dumplings.

"That was my only rider," she said. "I would do anything for dumplings. You could add nothing else. I didn't even need a dress. I was trying to wear leggings and a hoodie. I just wanted dumplings, that's all."

Judging by THOSE amazing wedding snaps on Instagram, it seems like the pair had an incredible wedding day.

While attending the 2019 MusiCares Person of the Year Gala, Miley and her parents honoured her godmother, Dolly Parton.

She made sure to give a KILLAH performance with Shawn Mendes while she was there, because why not? She also walked the red carpet on Liam's behalf the other night for the premiere of his new flick, Isn't It Romantic.

Miley and Liam have us feelin' pretty damn jealous of how pure goals-y they are. We wish we could have gone to their wedding soirée, we do enjoy dumplings.

Actress Margot Robbie is set to earn HUGE praise for her role in Mary, Queen of Scots, and now the Australian is set to star in a totally different movie.

She's officially signed on to produce and star in a live-action BARBIE movie, E! News reported today.

Warner Bros. and Mattel have struck up a partnership to bring the franchise to the cinemas in it's first ever live-action take on the famous doll.

Chairman of Warner Bros, Toby Emmerich, commented on Margot's new role in the project;

"Margot is the ideal producer and actress to bring Barbie to life on screen in a fresh and relevant way for today's audiences." Robbie intends on co-producing the movie under LuckyChap Entertainment.

The 28-year-old actress released a statement expressing her delight at playing the role of Barbie;

"Playing with Barbie promotes confidence, curiosity and communication throughout a child's journey to self-discovery. Over the brand's almost 60 years, Barbie has empowered kids to imagine themselves in aspirational roles from a princess to president."

She continued; "I'm so honoured to take on this role and produce a film that I believe will have a tremendously positive impact on children and audiences worldwide. I can't imagine better partners than Warner Bros. and Mattel to bring this film to the big screen."

Tom Ackerley, Margot's husband, as well as her business partner are also co-producers. Mattel took back the rights after the option passed on Sony's deal, and Robbie signed a first-look negotiation with Warner Bros in 2016.

Chairman and CEO of Mattel, said in a statement; "Barbie is one of the most iconic franchises in the world and we are excited to partner with Warner Bros Pictures and Margot Robbie to bring her to life on the big screen. We look forward to building on this collaboration with Warner Bros Pictures as we tell the stories of our beloved brands."

Amy Schumer was previously roped in to portray the titular doll she dropped out in 2017, saying in a statement, "Sadly, I'm no longer able to commit to Barbie due to scheduling conflicts. The film has so much promise, and Sony and Mattel have been great partners. I'm bummed, but look forward to seeing Barbie on the big screen." 

A director or release date has yet to be assigned. 

We can't wait to see what Margot does with this role, she really can be anything she wants. Barbie inspo 101.

Selena Gomez looks healthy and refreshed in the first photos of the star since entering a treatment facility for anxiety and depression in October.

The Wolves singer went on a fun field trip to the snow in Big Bear, California, yesterday.

The star was all smiles on her day out with friends, including her former Wizards of Waverly Place co-star Bailee Madison.

Selena wore a black outfit for her outdoor activities, striking a pose with her friends and looking healthier than ever after snow-tubing.

Gomez entered a treatment facility for anxiety and depression last October following her struggle and ongoing issues with Lupus, a disease which caused her to require a kidney transplant in 2017.

After undergoing a trip to hospital in September, the star appeared under a huge amount of strain. 

A source told E! News that Selena "started to feel super overwhelmed" but just a week after entering the treatment centre she was "already feeling better than she did last week."

Since leaving her treatment programme in New York, Selena hasn't made many public outings or appearances.

She utilised dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), a form of cognitive-behavioural psychology, while receiving treatment.

The 26-year-old told Vogue in 2017 that  "DBT has completely changed my life," adding,

"I wish more people would talk about therapy. We girls, we're taught to be almost too resilient, to be strong and sexy and cool and laid-back, the girl who's down. We also need to feel allowed to fall apart."

The former Disney star seems to rely a lot on her friendships for support during times of tough mental and physical health.

During a photoshoot for a campaign, she had her friends join her on set;

"I don't know what I would be without my friends. They've saved my life, they've been there for me through the thick and thin of it all," she said in a video for SGxPUMA.

We're so glad for Selena that she has such loyal friends, and wish her all the best with her health in future.

She's truly inspiring, it can't be easy to discuss mental health under the public eye.

Whether it’s a guilty pleasure or low-key obsession, reality shows make for some of the best entertainment available on TV.

Some may be firm believers that the Kardashian clan made reality TV what it is today, while others lean more towards Andy Warhol’s spark of genius in recording daily life and his “famous for 15 minutes” philosophy.

Either way, the trend is arguably at its peak and has us all hooked. In preparation for the upcoming holidays and extra time to spend in front of the screen, here are a few tips to enjoy the best reality shows of days past and present.

Plan your show sources and schedules

The holiday season is usually packed with marathons on TV, be it anything from Big Brother to America’s Next Top Model.

However, there’s nothing worse than missing a juicy episode and spending the rest of the season somewhat in the dark. Luckily, these shows have become easy to get hold of and even easier to track on their relevant channels.

Prepping for the weekly marathon simply requires your chosen list of shows to watch next, a TV schedule guide and a subscription to a trusty online streaming site just in case you miss an episode.

Worst case scenario, you can find catch up reviews online to grab all the essential details before you continue watching.

Get social and involved

Along with the gift of reality shows, the technology age has given us a range of platforms to express every bit of excitement or rage the presents itself during the tangible drama onscreen.

One way to show support or express your strong feelings about your favourite show is to head to Twitter, Instagram or Facebook to share all the best and worst moments with viewers across the world.

Nothing feels quite as satisfying knowing another fan is having the same experience as you are and is also unashamedly passionate about the latest scandals.

Perhaps it's no surprise, then, that people can now bet on the latest shows like UK’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! It's possible for people to bet on a final winner or who will be sent home in the various eliminations throughout the season.

The interaction makes the entire experience all the more real, particularly when people can potentially win money from your extensive show knowledge. Who said watching TV wasn't a productive use of time?

Stay (somewhat) active

The holidays are all about fun and relaxation, but you don’t want to become entirely sedentary during your off time.

This isn’t to say you should spend your days at the gym if you’re not that way inclined. Instead, you can compile a fun workout or set of activities to do in the comfort of your home and maybe even do it without having to turn off the TV.

With so many equipment-free options from which to choose, you can be sure to find something to suit you. After all, the boost in energy means more time to continue the holiday fun.

Catt Sandler left E! News two months ago after she became aware of a massive wage gap between herself and her male co-host. 

In a statement posted on her website, the 43-year-old news anchor confirmed that she made the decision after learning of a “massive disparity in pay” between her and co-host Jason Kennedy.

'An executive from E! brought something alarming to my attention — namely, that there was a massive disparity in pay between my similarly situated male co-host and myself,' she wrote at the time.

Catt went on to reveal the scale of the pay gap, explaining how her male co-anchor had been earning almost twice her salary for the past number of years.

Now, Catt has revealed E!'s response to her leaving her position. 

According to a personal essay written by the presenter:

'For me, in those moments, it was important to explain how I had been wronged and how I knew in my core that to stay would mean collaborating with an evil system,' she wrote.

'Swallowing my values was not an option. What happened to me was unfair.'

'After exhausting all attempts to make things right, I asked the decision makers face to face, “Why?” “Why is he, in your opinion, worth so much more than I am? Is he doubly good at his job?'

'Their response? “We’re obviously just looking through a different lens than you.” Yes, the “he’s a male and therefore gets preferential treatment” lens.'

Ahead of the 60th annual Grammy Awards ceremony tonight, a Care2 petition is calling on artists to boycott E! News on the red carpet. 

It comes after bosses failed to address the issue around wage inequality when after Catt Sadler, one of network's best-loved talents, quit her upon learning that her co-anchor, Jason Kennedy, was earning almost twice her salary despite doing the exact same job. 

The petition, which urges artists like Lady Gaga, Kesha and Bruno Mars to snub the pre-show interview, has garnered over 17,000 signatures so far. 

It argues that E! News is "not taking this seriously at all" and accuses the network of being hypocritical through its support of the #MeToo and #Time;sUp movements.

Catt Sadler, who presented two shows on the entertainment station, Daily Pop and E! News, quit in December after learning of a huge disparity between her and Jason's pay. 

“An executive from E! brought something alarming to my attention — namely, that there was a massive disparity in pay between my similarly situated male co-host and myself,” she said at the time.

“More recently, when E! reached out to renew and extend my deal, I learned that he wasn’t just making a little more than I was. In fact, he was making close to double my salary for the past several years.” 

The 60th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony takes place tonight, January 28, in Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Catt Sadler has left her role at E! News after more than a decade with the US television network.

The star revealed her departure in a tweet posted on Monday saying: “It’s true. Today will be my last day on #DailyPop and @enews. I hope you’ll tune in so I can thank you for the memories. I love you guys SO much it hurts.”

In a statement posted on her website, the 43-year-old news anchor confirmed that she made the decision after learning of a “massive disparity in pay” between her and co-host Jason Kennedy.

“Know your worth.  I have two decades experience in broadcasting and started at the network the very same year as my close friend and colleague that I adore.”

She continued: “It was important for me to explain my departure. I did not want to disappear from your television screens and have you wonder why. Thank you for your precious time all these years. Thank you for the support. Thank you for the constant exchange of ideas on social media as well. This chapter is over and a new one begins.”

According to reports, while Catt did attempt to negotiate for equal pay, the network offered her a number that was “not even remotely close” to Jason's salary.

Speaking to People magazine the mother-of-two said: "It's almost insulting because you know you work really hard. I'm a single mom of two kids. I've given my all to this network.

"I've sacrificed time away from my family and I have dedicated my entire career to this network. And when you learn something like that, it makes you feel very small and underappreciated and undervalued. It's heartbreaking…”

Fan were quick to offer Catt messages of love and support:

In a moving interview with People, E! News anchor, Maria Menounos, revealed that she recently underwent brain surgery after an MRI scan revealed she had a brain tumour.

The TV presenter was in the process of caring for her mother, who has stage 4 brain cancer, in February when she began experiencing symptoms which caused her grave concern.

"I’d been getting lightheaded on set and having headaches," she explained. "My speech had gotten slurred and I was having difficulty reading the teleprompter.”

 

It's ladies night tonight on @enews 7/11

A post shared by maria menounos (@mariamenounos) on

Acutely aware of her mother's diagnosis, 39-year-old Maria communicated her concerns to a physician who immediately acted on them, and sent the anchor for an MRI scan.

Tragically, Maria learned she had a brain tumour – a discovery which she said she struggled to comprehend.

"I didn’t cry. I actually laughed,” she recalled. “It’s so surreal and crazy and unbelievable that my mom has a brain tumour – and now I have one too?”

On June 8, Maria underwent a seven-hour surgery which allowed her surgeon to remove 99.9 per cent of the tumour.

Maria explained that while she's not entirely out of the woods, she's incredibly optimistic about her future.

Referring to her consultant's prognosis, Maria explained: "He said there’s a six to seven percent chance that we’ll see it come back. But I’ll take those odds any day.”

 

Happy Wednesday ! #bangs #noovie

Deciding to stand down from her position on the popular entertainment channel, Maria is now focussing on her recovery.

"My face is still numb. This is something that takes at least a month of healing, but I’m getting stronger and stronger every day and I’ll be back to normal very soon.”

Encouraging the public to take responsibility for their health and welfare, she said: "I tell people all the time if your car is making a weird noise, you take it to the mechanic. How come when our body is making weird noises, we ignore it?"

It's hard to believe that it has been almost seven years since the tragic passing of actress Brittany Murphy in her Beverly Hills home at the age of just 32. 

Though the death was determined to have been from 'natural causes' at the time, there has been much speculation into the tragic case and its strange circumstances ever since. 

The actress' death was believed to have been a combination of pneumonia and anaemia, as well as the accidental mixing of prescription drugs in her system. 

But according to a recent investigation undertaken by E! News, there are many authorities close to the case who still have questions. 

"I had questions initially and those questions remain," said a respected pathologist Dr Cyril Wecht to the news site. 

Brittany's husband, screenwriter Simon Monjack, also died of the exact same issues of wife just five months after her death in their home adding even more suspicion to the case. 

Brittany's mother Sharon has since claimed both deaths were caused by toxic moulds in their house while her father, Angelo Bertolotti, has speculated that a toxicology report included evidence of deliberate poisoning. 

While the circumstances around the death have yet to be satisfactorily cleared up, authorities have revealed that the case would reopen if the evidence presented itself. 

"We would have to have direct evidence,"  L.A. County Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter. 

"In all honesty, it would take something like a confession. Something connecting somebody with it.

"A reexamination could happen also if law enforcement contacted us. Or we can reopen the case if there is substantial evidence."

Ryan Seacrest is probably the most employable person in Hollywood.

In case you were not aware he’s the producer of American Idol and Keeping Up with the Kardashians, hosts a daily radio show, hosts American Idol and collaborates with Macy’s on his own menswear line, Ryan Seacrest Distinction

Now he is adding another gig to his already mile long CV. The television personality has announced he’s teaming up with celebrity skin expert Dr. Howard Lancer to launch a men’s grooming line in 2016. 

The doctor is Ryan’s long-time dermatologist. The pair have come together to produce a line of products that are designed specifically for men. 

“Ryan has been a patient and friend for a long time,” Lancer told Allure. “He’s always been interested in skincare, and while we’ve talked about this partnership for a while, now is the right time.” 

Ryan is not the only Hollywood A-Lister to launch such a line. Rob Lowe, a seemingly age-defying human being, has just launched his new skincare line, Profile

“I’ve sent it out to all my bros and the response has been great,” he told People magazine.  

“Zac Efron is a big fan of the cleanser. It’s very early — I’m sure I’ll be getting more feedback. But it’s pretty much as I hoped. People are digging it.”

Well, if Rob’s line already as Zac’s blessing then we reckon Ryan is going to be facing some serious competition.

Earlier this year, Giuliana Rancic announced that she would be saying goodbye to E! News after 10 years hosting the programme.

The TV personality confirmed that she would be ending her run as anchor on the series in August, but she would still be returning to co-host Fashion Police this season. 

The 41-year-old host described this new stage in her life as "such a thrilling time" and thanked the team at E! for allowing her to move on to the "next chapter."

She is still technically attached to the network and will be hosting red carpet events, so she’s not exactly going to be quick to diss E!

Her husband Bill, however, does not seem to be so concerned. 

New York Daily News asked the Fashion Police host if Kathy Griffin had “thrown the show under the bus when she made her haughty exit last year”.

Giuliana responded by saying: “I can’t comment on that,” then supposedly motioned at Bill adding, “I can’t say it. He can.”

Bill, 44, then “gave the universally recognised look that says, ‘Hell, yes!’”

Kathy left the show after just seven episodes and said she did not want to use her comedy “to contribute to a culture of unattainable perfectionism.” 

When asked if focusing on her fashion line, G By Giuliana, since going part-time at E! was a “breath of fresh air!," Bill was again quick to jump in.

“From your mouth to God’s ear!” he said, while Giuliana apparently attempted to keep him quiet:

“Stop saying that! You’re so bad! Bottom line: It’s just really nice to be doing what I’m very passionate about.”

Each week, we speak to an inspiring go-getter as part of our Rising Stars series.

Here, Emily O'Donnell of IrishTV.ie joins us to candidly talk about her impressive career, breaking world records, E! News – and why the camera just doesn't make her nervous (even if going on dates still does)…

When 32 year-old Leopardstown native, Emily O’Donnell, successfully completed the challenge of wearing a different outfit each day for an entire year back in 2013, she didn’t realise that she had actually set a Guinness World Record.

In the aftermath, she is – unsurprisingly – known for her love of style.

Still, rather refreshingly, these days her interests and skills extend far beyond mere fashion. For example, her show for Irish TV, Wicklow Country Matters, is currently enjoying huge success.

Indeed, with the station having just recently signed a deal to air in the US, the up-and-coming presenter is about to be seen by a whole new audience.

Should luck keep shining on Emily, a position at E! News could also be on the cards: she recently applied for a position at the station's London office.

And regardless of the outcome of that application, Emily – chatty, warm and outgoing – is certainly a natural in front of the camera.

“Normal things, like dates, would make me nervous, but being on television doesn’t make me nervous at all,” she laughs. “I’m completely at ease when I go on air.

"I love chatting to people for my show and I get to meet so many interesting characters too.”  

With a Masters in PR under her belt, Emily kick-started her career by working with fashion clients in consumer PR. Even though she adored the job, she didn’t particularly enjoy being confined to a desk.

Thus, Emily embarked upon a fashion styling course before going on to assist stylist Roxanne Parker on various magazine shoots.

It was only after RTE invited her take part in a pilot for a reality TV series, ICA Boot Camp, that she “really caught the TV bug,” and so was inspired to study TV presentation, production and direction.

As far as Emily’s career highlights go, it’s a toss between presenting for Fashion One TV – where she got to interview Hunger Games actor Alexander Ludwig – and the aforementioned Guinness world record-setting 365 Style Diary Project

Meanwhile, and although Wicklow County Matters attracts some of the highest viewer ratings on the channel, Emily is not one to rest on her laurels.

An idea she pitched to the station for on Irish milliners and crafts people is currently in production and will run later this year as a six-part series. With so much on her plate, what will happen if E! News comes calling? 

“If I got the job, then yes I would give it a go, but I’m a home bird at heart. To be honest, I love my job at Irish TV and now that it will be viewed in America, my mum won’t be the only one watching me any more!” she laughs.

“I love Ireland too much to make a permanent move, but if E! asked me over, I would probably find it hard to say no!”
