82 regular season games, two months worth of playoffs — but it all came down to one game. The Miami Heat and the San Antonio Spurs squared off one more time in Game 7 of the NBA final, and after a great game, the Miami Heat won the championship.
There is nothing better than a Game 7 — sports fans dream about them. So we knew we were in for a treat when LeBron James’ Miami Heat went head-to-head with the San Antonio Spurs in Game 7 of the NBA Finals — a winner-takes-all game to determine the 2013 NBA champions. It was TK TEAM’s night on June 20, as they claimed the Larry O’Brien Championship trophy, winning in a thriller 95-88.
Miami Heat Win NBA Championship — LeBron James Earns Second Ring
There was so much on the line coming into Game 7 — way more than just the 2013 championship. LeBron, who seemed to shake off the critics in 2012 by winning an NBA championship, an MVP trophy, and a gold medal at the Olympics, found himself once again the subject of unbelievable scrutiny. The general consensus going into June 20′s game was that if the Heat lost, LeBron would be a failure.
King James seemed to realize the stakes: “I only came here to win championships,” LeBron told ESPN before the game. “This is what I wanted to be a part of this team for.”
On the other side of the court, the San Antonio Spurs, were looking to become one of the most decorated NBA teams ever. Built around veteran Tim Duncan, the Spurs have won four titles in the last 14 years. Winning a fifth would propel them into conversations with Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls, Larry Bird’s Boston Celtics, and Kobe Bryant’s Los Angeles Lakers.
In the final moments, Miami Heat took the lead by 7 points!
What about you, HollywoodLifers – were you rooting for the Miami Heat to win? Let us know!
After Kimye’s baby was welcomed to the world on June 15, the couple kept her name a secret — until now! According to a new report, the birth certificate has been revealed with a rather peculiar name on it.
Although many were wondering if Kim and Kanye would go with another “K” name to keep in tradition with their own names — and Kim’s family’s own tradition — the birth certificate allegedly revealed the name of their baby daughter as North West, TMZ is reporting.
However, Kim and Kanye must have changed their minds because they were definitely set on a “K” name before this reveal.
Could it be? Could Kanye and Kim have named their daughter after a space needle direction?
Kim & Kanye Keep Their Baby’s Gender A Secret
Although the couple found out the gender of their baby as soon as they could, they kept it a secret from the public until the official reveal on Kim’s hit show Keeping Up with the Kardashians. In the episode, Kim visited the doctor’s office with her sisters Kourtney and Khloe and mom Kris Jenner, and the doctor revealed she was having a girl!
But the couple managed to keep it a secret by fooling people whenever they would buy baby clothes! They kept all of the purchases gender unspecific. She said on her reality show:
We buy all white. Or we'll go and buy both [girl and boy clothing], and then no one will know!
We’re glad we finally know the name of their baby girl! What do YOU think of the name, HollyMoms? Do you like it?
In case you’re unaware, there’s now video on Instagram! Justin took advantage of the new feature and released a sexy new video, where he revealed big news!
Justin Bieber always looks great shirtless, so we’re happy he was half naked while he took advantage of the new video feature on Instagram on June 20!
Justin Bieber Instagram Video — Singer Reveals ‘Crazy News’ While Shirtless
“Hahaha,” Justin captioned the clip. ”So crazy news, guys, there’s video on Instagram!” the singer says with a laugh.
He can hardly contain himself as he bursts into more laughter.
While Selena Gomez has been spending time with her friends, including David Henrie, post-split, it appears that Justin is still doing what he does best — taking off his shirt and sharing intimate moments on Instagram! (We’re definitely not complaining.)
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Watch the video below and tell us if you think Justin’s first Instagram video is sexy!
'The Last Goodbye,' a song from Miley’s new album, sounds very different from her party anthem 'We Can't Stop.' The lyrics are intense, and a source tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively if it’s a message to Liam Hemsworth.
‘The Last Goodbye’ About Miley Cyrus’ Dog Lila — Sad Song
A source close to Miley tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively, “It isn’t about Liam, it’s actually something that came to her after her dog died and formed into this song. It started as a sad song but when it’s released you’ll see that it is actually uplifting.”
‘The Last Goodbye’ Lyrics
The 5-second sneak peek that’s available does not provide much except the following lyric: "I know you're going to want me to come home for a last goodbye," however, our source assures as that it’s not a song about Liam.
Plus, Miley is definitely not saying goodbye to her fiance anytime soon. The two were recently spotted on a romantic movie date at the ArcLight Cinemas in Los Angeles, where they were seen showing a bit of PDA.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Is “The Last Goodbye” a sad song? Listen to the snippet below and tell us what you think!

Kanye’s never been one to do what’s expected. And a source tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that Yeezy will continue that trend because he won’t be selling his baby’s photos!
While Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie reportedly sold their baby photos, of Knox and Vivienne, for $14 million in 2008, Kanye West refuses to make money off of his baby girl.
Kanye West Selling Baby Pictures? — Yeezy’s No Sell-Out
A source close to Kanye tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively, ”I know Kanye’s not about to make money off that girl. Trust, that’s not going to happen. Kanye isn’t no pimp and he damn sure isn’t about to pimp out his own daughter. That’s not in his character. Whenever he does decide to bring his girl out in public, it won’t be for money. It’s going to be on his terms and in an appropriate place.”
Kim Kardashian Will Likely Want To Sell The Photos
A source previously told us, "I highly doubt Kim will just give it up for free, slim chance that's going to happen. If there's money to be made, she will make it and honestly, there's nothing wrong with that. Why give it up for free when at the same time you can make a dollar from it?"
That’s true! Plus, Kim and Kanye could always give the money to charity, like Brad and Angelina did. Wouldn’t that make it all worth it?
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should Kanye and Kim sell their baby’s first photos?
Chris will release his new album, ‘X,’ on July 16, but don’t expect to hear any duets with Rihanna. A source tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that Chris is doing everything he can to keep such tracks off the album.
It must have been a bitter breakup! Following Chris Brown’s split with Rihanna, the “Fine China” singer is threatening his record label, telling them to keep any tracks with Rihanna off his album!
Rihanna On Chris Brown Album? — Breezy: NO Ex On ‘X’
A source close to Chris tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively, “Just saw the working track list for ‘X’ yesterday — Rihanna is not on there. Record execs wanted that song on there, but Chris said he would rather not and wouldn’t allow the record to be released unless they took it off. They’re still hoping to convince Chris or pay him more to change his mind because it would be a hit. The record hasn’t been pressed yet, so things can change, but at this point he’s been bullheaded and won’t change his mind.”
Chris, 24, previously confirmed that a track featuring Rihanna, 25, would be on his new album, but that was before they broke up.
Chris Brown Previously Confirmed: Rihanna ‘Will Be On My Album’
"We're taking it one day at a time," Chris told USA Today of RiRi in late March. "She's a wonderful girl. She's beautiful. She's on tour and our schedules don't allow us to be as close as we want to be. But everything is good. She will be on my album."
Sadly, things can change in a blink of an eye. Chris and Rihanna have split and he’s now dating his other ex Karrueche Tran again.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should Chris’ duet with Rihanna go on his new album?

The sad, sudden death of James Gandolfini is mourned across the world, but no one will grieve quite the way his family will. This tough time has to be especially hard for James’ young 13-year-old son, Michael, and experts gave their thoughts on how he can cope.
James Gandolfini was known as a family man who had a loving adoration for his two children, Michael, 13, and Liliana Ruth, 9 months. It’s never easy to lose a parent, but it is especially hard for young children who have to grow up without a father. HollywoodLife.com asked some experts about what they can do to deal with the grief.
How James Gandolfini’s Son Can Cope With Trauma Of Finding His Dad Dead
Michael was with James at the time of his heart attack, and he was the one who found his father on the floor of their hotel bathroom after it happened. Dr. Gilda Carle, 30-second therapist for the Today show, told HollywoodLife.com exclusively that the trauma of what he witnessed has the possibility of resulting in Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and counseling is highly recommended for Michael.
She tells HollywoodLife.com:
This will be a very difficult picture for him to erase. He’ll worry that he did not do enough. He’ll keep repeating, ‘If only…I had acted sooner, called my mom, called the right person…’ He’ll benefit from grief counseling, so he can understand the stages of grief and can recognize each stage as it evolves.
How Michael Gandolfini Can Grow Up Without A Father
It’s not going to be easy for Michael to grow up without his dad, but there’s ways for him to be able to cope with it as he grows up, said Dr. Mary Lamia.
Generally speaking, nothing can bring back the person you lost,” she said. “There's nothing anybody can do to make it easier, except to try to connect with him because it's such a massive disconnection when you lose a parent. There's nothing harder than losing a parent except losing a child. There's no way to make it better, but there's ways to distract oneself or ease the pain. Life goes on and you make other connections and that eases the pain a bit.
Those connections can be made with the help of family members, Dr. Lawrence Balter, Ph.D., said:
It depends on the person, but he needs the support and help from his family. They should do as much as they can to commemorate his father's life. They should talk about his father a lot so he becomes part of his own memory.
Dr. Lamia also thinks it is important for Michael to pay homage to his father as he grows up. She adds:
“It's important to remember what the lost person taught you, who they were and that they're still inside of you. To remember what his father taught him and use that as guidance during his teenage life, as an adult and as he's a parent. The main thing to watch out for is that when they become a parent and their child is the age they were when the parent died, they'll remember how young and innocent they were and the grief will come up again.
How James Gandolfini’s 9-Month-Old Daughter Can Remember Him
It’s hard enough for a 13-year-old boy to cope with the loss of a father, but 9-month-old Liliana Ruth isn’t even old enough to realize what happened. The experts gave some advice about what Liliana Ruth’s mother, Deborah Lin, can do to make sure her daughter learns about the man James truly was. D.r Gilda says:
Certainly, a 9-month-old child has no ability to comprehend this tragedy. But as she begins to ask questions at age 3, 4 and thereabouts, answer as truthfully as possible, without generating fear in the child. Statements like ‘Daddy’s in heaven, and protecting you from far away’ is a common rationale that children accept.
Dr. Balter said it’s imperative that Deborah doesn’t keep any details about James’ death from Liliana Ruth. He adds:
[Deborah] has to tell her the truth about how he died, whatever the medical facts are about what happened to him. She should talk about some of the nice memories that she has about her husband and how much he loved his daughter; develop a very nice narrative so that she can appreciate who her father was.
He is remembered as one of the nicest and most genuine actors in Hollywood, and we can only hope his children can remember and celebrate how great of a father they had.
Danielle Bradbery Record Deal — ‘The Voice’ Winner Signs To Taylor Swift Label
Big Machine Records also includes country stars Tim McGraw and Rascal Flatts.
Danielle, 16, will head to Nashville to meet with the staff of the record company early next week and begin recording some new music for her debut album on June 24, The Hollywood Reporter claims.
Danielle’s coach Blake Shelton was focused on building Danielle’s country fan base during the competition.
He said, “I wanted to make sure Nashville respected her as much as they could. Obviously she’s an incredible vocalist, but I wanted them to know that she respects country music. That’s why we kept throwing it back to artists from 10, 20 years ago.”
Danielle must have felt Blake certainly helped her, because she told THR that she hopes he continues to mentor her in the future.
Blake Shelton: Danielle Bradbery Is A Gift To The Music Industry
Blake said, “I see us standing here talking about her 20 years from now. I do believe that. I wouldn’t say that, with this confidence, about anyone else that’s been on this show. Danielle Bradbery is a gift to the music industry.”
Danielle sang Taylor Swift’s “Mean” during her blind audition. She impressed Blake, Usher and Adam Levine enough for them to turn their chairs around.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Is Danielle Bradberry the next Taylor Swift?

The doting dad thinks his daughter is so gorgeous, he doesn’t want to leave her side! A source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY just how infatuated he is with his daughter.
Kanye West is officially head-over-heels in love with his new family, and can’t stop gushing about his baby girl. Obviously, Kanye knows his girlfriend Kim Kardashian is gorgeous, so it’s no surprise he thinks his baby is just as beautiful!
Kim K may have rented out a deluxe maternity suite at Cedars Sinai hospital in Los Angeles, Calif., but because baby Kimye decided to come early, her room reportedly wasn’t ready for her. Instead of the celebrity suite, she had to deal with a normal hospital room!
Kim Kardrashian had her birth suite at Cedars Sinai hospital all ready to go and was anticipating her baby’s arrival — until it came three weeks early on June 15! Because of the early arrival, the fancy rooms were already reserved, so Kim and her crew were forced to stay in a room for normal hospital residents. Blasphemy!
Kim Kardashian Had To Stay In A Normal Hospital Room
Kim didn’t leave the hospital until June 19, so she still got to enjoy some time in the $3,320-per-night hospital suite equipped with a flatscreen TV, food service and spa arrangements, but her first experience in the hospital reportedly wasn’t quite so luxurious!
That's the real reason why they're doing it, so people won't be trying to get all up in their space trying to look at the baby and everything. That's not going to happen. Kanye really wants this to be a special moment. He's about to have his first baby with Kim, and he wants to savor that moment and doesn't want anything or anyone to mess it up!
Kanye West Bumps Into Dwight Howard At The Hospital
As Kanye was waiting for Kim to give birth, he roamed around the hospital — only to bump into basketball star Dwight Howard! According to TMZ, Dwight’s newest baby momma (he has three others) was occupying one of the hospital suites, but Dwight and Kanye got along famously anyway, with Kanye letting Dwight get an early listen of his new album, Yeezus.
No reports have been released about whether Kim actually had to give birth in a regular hospital room, but we hope Kim and Kanye got the “special moment” they were hoping for!
Do YOU think a fancy hospital suite was necessary for Kim to give birth, HollyMoms?
Today’s an important day for Edward Cullen: The sexy vampire who stole our hearts in the ‘Twilight’ movies turns 112! While he is celebrating with his sparkly and gorgeous family, we are naming the top five reasons we’ll always be Team Edward.
Even though his flawless face will never age, that doesn’t mean Edward Cullen won’t technically get older. Everyone’s favorite Twilight vampire was born June 20, 1901, a day which won’t be forgotten. For his special day, we decided to list the reasons why we’ll always love Bella’s soulmate.
5 Reasons We Love Edward Cullen
1. Edward Cullen is strong, yet sensitive:
He’s sweet, smart, and unbelievably gorgeous. He loves Bella unconditionally and has saved her own countless occasions. From his quoting of Shakespeare to his piano skills, this guy is just perfect.
2. His undying devotion to Bella Swan:
The love story is at the center of it all. Even when Bella thought he was gone for good in The Twilight Saga: New Moon, he was just trying to protect her from the dangers he thought he brought in her life. He let her make her own decision regarding her relationship with Jacob. He made us swoon over his proposal to Bella. Basically, Edward is just an all-around great guy who forces all the other guys to step up their game.
3. Edward is an amazing dad:
This incredible dad literally delivered his own daughter, Renesmee — which was epic enough for us — but then he also protected his daughter at all costs against the Volturi!
4. His restraint around human Bella:
Even in the multiple times Bella was a bloody mess, Edward never went too far and sucked her dry. That takes skill, Edward — one that we definitely admire.
5. His sparkly skin:
The hot vampire has the most beautiful skin, ever. He sparkles in the sun and his flawless features are often referred as god-like by Bella. Count us as jealous.
We will miss this swoon-worthy vamp on the big screen, but we thankfully have the Twilight books and DVDs for eternity. So, happy birthday, Edward Cullen. For all you Twi-hards, we’re taking it back to where we first fell in love with the selfless vamp: when he used his superhuman powers to save Bella from being hit by a van!
What is your favorite thing about Edward Cullen, HollywoodLifers? The reasons are endless, but drop us a comment and let us know what you think!
You two are now the proud, and I’m sure exhausted, parents of a gorgeous five-day-old girl and are headed to your interim home to officially start your life together as a family.
You’ve also just been through a few scary moments together. Kim had to give birth three weeks early to your daughter after her blood pressure soared, and she displayed possible symptoms of pre-eclampsia, a potentially dangerous condition, according to People magazine.
That must have made for a tense few hours for the two of you, before your baby was safely delivered.
But going through adversity together, I’m sure, also brought you even closer. Our HollywoodLife.com sources tell us you’re madly in love with your new daughter, and you think “she’s the most beautiful girl ever.”
That’s exactly how you, as a new dad, should be feeling; and I can tell you, as a mom myself, that you’re only going to fall more in love with your daughter with each passing day.
That’s why now is the perfect time for you, Kanye, to make Kim the happiest woman on Earth — not that she isn’t already feeling that way.
Kanye & Kim — You Two Have Such A Healthy Relationship
You two have known each other for several years. You were friends before you became lovers, which is absolutely the best way to begin a romance.
We know you’re crazy about Kim and that you barely left her side in the hospital. When swimsuit model Leyla Ghobadi tried to accuse you of cheating on Kim, you told our source that it was ridiculous because “ain’t s–t popping off with [no one] other than Kim.”
But what was even more important was that Kim didn’t give it a moment of thought. She knew she was with you when you “supposedly” were meeting Leyla, and besides that, she trusts you. Trust is such an important component of a loving and lasting relationship.
Kanye, now that Kim is finally free of Kris Humphries, she’s free to marry you! She loves you, she trusts you and she supports you. She never complained when you spent months in Paris recording Yeezus — she respects your creativity and knows you need your artistic freedom to do your best work — and not all women would be so understanding.
Kanye, Kim’s your perfect match. Rob Shuter of NaughtyButNiceRob.com has reported that an engagement is imminent because you are so overcome with loving emotion since the birth of your baby.
We at HollywoodLife.com really hope that’s true! Kanye, what could be more romantic than to propose to the woman you love, who has just given birth to the daughter you’re in love with?
Do it! Make it official!
Don’t you think Kanye should propose to Kim now, HollywoodLifers? Let me know!
