Surprise! Anna Kournikova and Enrique Iglesias welcomed twins on Saturday. The two, who kept the pregnancy completely out of the public eye, had a boy and a girl they named Nicholas and Lucy. That same day, she posted this pic on Instagram writing, “#MiamiWinter.” The duo met on the set of his “Escape” music video in 2001 and have been dating for 16 years.  She sports a large yellow diamond on her left ring finger, but they have never commented on their official status, besides when in 2014 he told Latino magazine, “This is a new era! A paper doesn’t guarantee your happiness. Besides, we are just fine with sex and love.” And in 2016, he told E! News, “I don’t believe you need a piece of paper to show you love someone. Who knows what the future holds…or the past…haha.”

Meryl Streep Oscars 2012The Manhattan district attorney’s office is trying to build an embezzlement case against Harvey Weinstein in addition to his rape case, which has not yet gone before a jury. The New York Post says Cyrus Vance Jr. has spent the past few weeks speaking to former employees of Weinstein and gathering documents on the heels of service about two dozen subpoenas. Their goal is said to be ensuring that Weinstein can’t avoid prosecution. Meanwhile, Meryl Streep finally responded to Rose McGowan’s criticism of her not speaking up about Harvey Weinstein. “I wasn’t deliberately silent,” Streep told the Huffington Post. “I didn’t know. I don’t tacitly approve of rape. I didn’t know. I don’t like young women being assaulted. I didn’t know this was happening. Rose assumed and broadcast something untrue about me and I wanted to let her know the truth. I am truly sorry she sees me as an adversary, because we are both, together with all the women in our business, standing in defiance of the same implacable foe.” McGowan had tweeted, “You’ll accept a fake award breathlessly & affect no real change. I despise your hypocrisy.” Really??? Meryl needs a better publicist.

Mariah CareyShe’s happy…Mariah Carey’s 23-year-old hit, “All I Want for Christmas is You,” just made the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 list. This milestone marks the first time the song has crested into the Top 10 since its 1994 release on her fourth studio album, “Merry Christmas.” “This is such an amazing Christmas gift,” the 47-year-old gushed. “As a songwriter, I feel so honored to have this song reach Billboard’s Top 10 for the first time.” She continued, “I’m so thankful to everyone who embraces this song as part of their holiday tradition.”

 

Happy Monday!
