Celebrity Scoops…updated Wednesday, 5.3.17

Jimmy Kimmel choked up on Monday night’s monologue, discussing how his son William John Kimmel was born with a serious heart condition. He gave props to the staff and  a ”very attentive nurse” at Cedars-Sinai Hospital, who detected his baby’s heart murmur and ultimately diagnosed the issue as a blocked pulmonary valve. Little Billy underwent open-heart surgery at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, and seems to be doing just fine now. “It was the longest three hours of my life,” he remarked. He also used the platform to note that President Donald Trump proposed a $6 billion cut to the National Institutes of Health and praised Congress for their decision to “not go along with that. They actually increased funding by $2 billion and I applaud them for doing that.” He also joked, “Poor kid. Not only did he get a bad heart, he got my face.”

Nice call! Kelly Ripa’s year-long search for a new TV cohost seems to have been worth the wait. Ryan Seacrest has landed the coveted gig, so the show will now be called, “Live with Kelly and Ryan.” The pair took to the studio sound stage hand-in-hand for the announcement and Seacrest later told People, “I almost had a tear in my eye.” Kelly concurred saying, “It was that think where I was like, if I start crying now, I am not going to be able to pull myself together. So I am just going to save it until afterwards because we need to not derail the show with our tears.” Looking good together, guys!

Who could ever throw shade on little Princess Charlotte? Apparently some internet trolls did just that after this adorable shot of her went public. “Just me that thinks Princess Charlotte is kind of ugly,” noted ‘White Chyna.’ Others busted on her hair, saying it was a middle aged blow dry and that it was a comb-over. Thankfully others quickly defended the darling Royal, sniping, “It’s a baby, you should keep quiet you moron.” Agreed! Contain the crazy out there.

Happy Wednesday!
