MEREDITH VIEIRA DISCUSSES OLD 'TODAY' SHOW DRAMA


Meredith Vieira admits that NBC did not handle the Today show drama from 2012 which resulted in Ann Curry's firing and Matt Lauer being viewed as the bad guy. The former co-host recently chatted with The Hollywood Reporter where she addressed the shakeup that went down following her exit from the morning news show.

Meredith said, "I really felt for Matt Lauer a lot. And I felt for Ann, too. It turned so nasty, really nasty. Every day you're reading this stuff that is just beyond cruel from angry, angry people who felt that Ann had been slighted and embarrassed and humiliated. And they basically pointed to one person on whom to take out all of their anger. I don't know if I would have survived that." She continued, "I just told him I loved him and I was there for him. But I never sugarcoated what had happened. I thought it had not been handled smartly from the very beginning, because I don't think they ever felt that was the right fit for Ann so they should never have put her in that position to begin with. And the ending was so mishandled. But you know what, s**t happens. People make mistakes. We all do."

  • Savannah Guthrie was hired at Ann's replacement.

ADRIENNE BAILON THROWS SHADES BACK AT KIM KARDASHIAN


Adrienne Bailon has responded to The Kardashian family's shade towards her. Earlier this week, an interview that The Real co-host did with Latina Magazine was published and she talked about ex Rob Kardashian. In the interview, Bailon revealed that being with Rob was hurtful to her career. She also discussed his infidelity, saying "It’s common knowledge that he cheated on me. It always bothered me that people were like, ‘Pero, why couldn’t you forgive him? Why are women always the ones who have to forgive? If you cheated on a man, he would be like, ‘You’re disgusting, and I want nothing to do with you.’ But women, we’re supposed to be like, ‘He messed up. He made a mistake.’"

Kim clapped back on Twitter, writing, "Funny how she says being with a Kardashian hurt her career yet the only reason she has this article is bc she is talking about a Kardashian. So sad when people try to kick my brother when he is down #FamilyForever."

  • Khloe wrote, "FDB" -- which stands for "F*ck Dat B*tch" and told a follower that she thought she was cool with Adrienne. Rob retweeted Khloe's "FDB" tweet.

ADRIENNE'S RESPONSE

On Thursday (July 31st), Adrienne responded via Instagram, writing, "Fame and a Career are two different things. I’ve always had a career. I have been working hard since I was 15-years-old. Being someone’s 'girlfriend' was never what I wanted to be famous for. What makes you 'famous' isn’t always what you want to be 'labeled' as, or known for. If anyone should understand that … It should be you."

  • She continued, "I also stated in the article that none of this would have stopped me from being in love and being in that relationship. I just would have gone about it differently. You can love someone just as much in private. We all learn from our first loves."

CELEBRITY GOSSIP


JADA PINKETT SMITH ADDRESSES OPEN MARRIAGE RUMORS AGAIN: Jada Pinkett Smith poses on the cover of Net-A-Porter's The Edit where she discusses the long-standing tabloid rumor that she and Will Smith have an open marriage. The Gotham star explains, "Will, to me, encompasses everything. It's almost as if calling him 'my husband' is too small of a word for what he means in my life...I think I had a very stuck idea of what a husband looks like, what a wife should be. Once I broke all of that, a whole new world opened for me and man, oh, man, I got to see him in all his glory. And so that's what it's evolved into. And I'm just ecstatic about it." She goes on to reveal how they deal with the stories saying, "The coping technique is knowing what the truth is. When you know that what's going on in your house is so the opposite of what's being said, and you also know that when there's mystery, people fill in the gaps, that's okay. And then you look back at it and look at how creative people can be, and it's kind of entertaining. We can laugh because it's so ridiculous. But I get it. I don't take it personally."

KIRSTIE ALLEY AND MAKSIM CHMERKOVSKIY AREN'T FRIENDS ANYMORE BECAUSE OF LEAH REMINI


Scientology and Leah Remini allegedly ruined Maksim Chmerkovskiy's friendship with Kirstie Alley. The Dancing With the Stars pro dropped by Watch What Happens Live earlier this week where he was asked if he is still close with his former dance partner.

He went on to say, "I think the world of her. I'm not judging people by their religion. I'm Jewish. I don't really believe in science fiction, but whatever. It's sad that we've gone through so much together, and I feel like I've helped her. And this is where we're at now. But I still think the world of her, and I wish her all the best."

  • Many news outlets are speculating that his rumored girlfriend, Jennifer Lopez, and her BFF/former scientologist, Remini, are the people that Kirstie "can't be associated with."
