    • TRUMP BLASTS OPRAH WINFREY OVER '60 MINUTES' SEGMENT

      Her segment, which covered the partisan divide in the country, prompted a series of tweets from Trump.

      • "Just watched a very insecure Oprah Winfrey, who at one point I knew very well, interview a panel of people on 60 Minutes," he tweeted on Sunday evening. "The questions were biased and slanted, the facts incorrect. Hope Oprah runs so she can be exposed and defeated just like all of the others!"
      • Winfrey has repeatedly said that she is not running after giving fans hope with a rousing speech at the Golden Globes that many saw as her testing the waters for a 2020 run.

      She is already a member of the board of nonprofit anti-corruption org Represent.Us. alongside director David O. Russell, with whom she frequently collaborates the Red Sparrow star tells Entertainment Tonight.

      • "It doesn't have anything to do with partisan politics," Lawrence said of her involvement with the non-profit organization. "It's just anti-corruption and stuff trying to pass state by state laws that can help prevent corruption, fix our democracy."
      • Or is she? A rep for Lawrence told Entertainment Weekly Monday that Lawrence isn’t going anywhere, and while she may dive deeper into politics, she is waiting on the green light on a few upcoming projects and will be highly active in Tinseltown again shortly.
      • Lawrence has become more and more involved in politics recently. In January, she participated in the Women’s March, holding a sign that read: "A woman's place is in the revolution."
      • This also isn’t the first time she’s expressed interest in taking a step back from Hollywood. The 27-year-old told Elle in November that she wanted to buy a farm and milk goats.

      • Fans immediately lashed out on Twitter, dubbing her a "spoiled brat" and "Miss Arrogance." Others defended her though, saying she was just being "modest."

    • MEGHAN MARKLE AND PRINCE HARRY HIT 'HAMILTON' ON DATE NIGHT

      Prince Harry and Meghan Markle took time out of their crazy wedding planning schedules to hit the town for hip-hop musical Hamilton. The pair took in Lin Manuel Miranda’s Tony-winnig show in London at the Victoria Palace Theatre.

      Leslie Garcia Bowman, who plays a general in the West End production, tweeted that it "was an honor to have Prince Harry and Meghan" in the audience.

    • REPORT: JEN ANISTON AND JUSTIN THEROUX'S FINANCIAL SPLIT A SNAP

      If concern over the state of Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theoux’s fortune has been keeping you up at night, The Blast’s latest report should have you resting easy. According to the site, they set up their financial life to make a split super easy.

      The pair kept the deeds to their residences in their own names and as their "sole and separate property." The 49-year-old Aniston owns a mansion in Bel Air and another in the Hollywood Hills. The historic Bel Air home was bought by Aniston in 2011 for $21 million. The Hollywood Hills home was bought for $742,500 in 1995.

      • Theroux owns an apartment in Greenwich Village, but it is unknown how much it was purchased for. Since none of their homes were acquired together, they are not viewed as community property.
      • Additionally, their primary assets (Aniston’s earnings from Friends and Theroux’s from Tropic Thunder) were also acquired pre-relationship, so they are not fair game post-split.
      • Also, judging from their joint statement announcing the split—"We are two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple, but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship"—they want to keep things as friendly as the O.G. friendly exes, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin.
      • Another report in Us Weekly, however, seems to reveal a darker side to their show of well wishes. A source tells the mag that they hadn’t slept in the same room together for months, even when they weren’t on opposite sides of the country.
      • "When Justin was in Los Angeles and staying with Jen, he would typically spend most of his time in the guest house of the mansion," the insider says. "He would play music, hang out and, in the final months of their marriage, would end up sleeping in the guest house."
