Plus, with only one episode until the dreaded lunar eclipse, Scott and his pack are brought to the brink of death. Yeah, it was one of those nights.
Family and sacrifice were the two main themes of Teen Wolf‘s Aug. 12 episode, as Scott (Tyler Posey), Stiles (Dylan O’Brien), Allison (Crystal Reed) and Derek (Tyler Hoechlin) all went to extreme lengths to save the people they love. Of course, we won’t know how successful their efforts were until next week’s mid-season finale, so for now, let’s just talk about tonight’s epic surprises.
Papa, Can You Hear Me?
The biggest surprise of this week’s episode was easily the reveal that the super-handsome FBI agent questioning Stiles wasn’t your run-of-the-mill super-handsome FBI agent; he also happens to be Scott’s super-handsome father! (Did I mention he’s super-handsome?)
I figured that executive producer Jeff Davis was saving Scott’s dad for a rainy day, and I’m actually glad he sprung him on us without warning, rather than build up his reveal and create unnecessary hype. We already knew Scott’s mom was to thank for his olive complexion, and now we know where Scott gets his strong nose! (Thanks, Dad.)
#Stydia, At Last
Speaking of building hype, we finally got to see Lydia (Holland Roden) and Stiles’ long-awaited kiss this week, though it wasn’t much more than we were already shown in the mid-season trailer. At least now we know there wasn’t any romantic connection to the lip-lock; it was just Lydia’s way of calming Stiles down in the middle of his panic attack.
Still, there’s definitely something between them. After all, when Dr. Deaton paired up the three sacrifices — Scott, Stiles and Allison — with someone they had an emotional connection to, he didn’t hesitate to match up Stiles with Lydia. His decision to pair Allison with Isaac (Daniel Sharman) certainly raised a few eyebrows, though.
Seriously, did that guy get his PhD in shipping?
Derek Gets Desperate
Meanwhile, with Cora (Adelaide Kane) still on the brink of death, Peter (Ian Bohen) offered Derek a last resort to save her: He could absorb her poison and heal her, but it would mean giving up most of his power as an alpha. There always has to be a catch, doesn’t there?
Unsurprisingly, Derek decided to go ahead and heal her, so we watched as his eyes reverted back to that beautiful shade of innocent-killing blue.
It was a noble gesture, to be sure, but riddle me this: What’s the use of a powered-down Derek in these troubled times?
Morrell To The Story
Here’s where things got a little confusing: When the evil alphas tracked down Ms. Morrell (Bianca Lawson), they forced a ton of information out of her. Most of it made sense, but what did she mean when she said she’s just like Jennifer (Haley Webb)? She couldn’t possibly be a darach too, could she?
Her character has been all over the place since we first met her last season, so it wouldn’t totally surprise me if she made yet another crazy leap. We’ll get all of our answers — or at least some of them, hopefully — during next week’s mid-season finale.
Justin and Selena’s relationship has taken every single turn imaginable, and now the duo has decided to keep their friendship strong with the added bonus of ‘benefits!’ But will they really be able to maintain that kind of relationship without getting hurt?
After everything they’ve been through,Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber can’t bear to let each other go — but they’re also not in the right place to fully rekindle their romance. So the former couple has settled for casually hooking up whenever they’re both in the same city. It seems to be working for them so far, but someone always gets hurt when it comes to friends with benefits! Read on to find out all the EXCLUSIVE details about Justin and Selena’s new arrangement.
Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez: Friends With Benefits — They’re Still Hooking Up!
Justin and Selena have been keeping us guessing about the status of their relationship lately — especially after the Biebs didn’t show up to support Selena at the Teen Choice Awards on August 11. So what’s the deal with them?
“Their relationship is at a bit of a holding pattern,” a source close to the on-again, off-again couple tells HollywoodlLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “They are pretty much single but will hook up when they are in the same city.”
We all know how hard it is to move on after a breakup, and it’s only natural that Justin and Selena would still want to see each other — on any terms.
This latest phase of their relationship is the risky but popular “friends with benefits,” which can be fun — but someone’s feelings usually end up getting hurt in the end. Plus, based on Justin and Selena’s rocky history, we think they would have a hard time keeping things casual for long.
Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez: Are They Getting Back Together?
Everybody was waiting for Selena and Justin’s arrival at the Teen Choice Awards in Los Angeles to see how the on-again, off-again couple would handle the big event. But even though the "Come & Get It" singer was up for six awards, her ex didn’t show up to support her.
Justin did show his love for Selena by coming to her 21st birthday party in July with a single red rose, but he has since been spotted partying and flirting with other sexy girls. Selena, meanwhile, has said numerous times in interviews that she's single — but how single can you be if you’re still hooking up with your ex?
If anything, Justin’s new sitch with Selena is certainly better then hanging around his grandma naked. But that is a completely different story all together that Justin still has to explain!
So HollywoodLifers, do YOU think Justin and Selena are doing the right thing by being friends with benefits? Sound off below!
After the president dissed Kim and her baby daddy, Kanye West, in a recent interview, Kris jumped to Kim’s defense on her talk show, saying her daughter is the ‘hardest-working young lady in the world.’ Take that, Mr. President!
Apparently President Barack Obama doesn’t think Kim Kardashianand Kanye West set a good example for America’s youth. Barack called Kimye out while discussing the public’s troubling fascination with the lifestyles of the rich and famous in an interview with Amazon Kindle Singles — and his diss didn’t go unanswered. The president brought out the maternal instincts of momager Kris Jenner, who fought back on her talk show, Kris. Read on for all the details!
Kris Jenner On President Obama’s Kim Kardashian Diss — Momager Bites Back
In the interview, Barack says the American Dream isn’t what it used to be — and the public’s growing obsession with celebrity culture is partially to blame.
I do think what’s shifted is a notion that the wealthier you are, the more conspicuous consumption you engage in. The more successful you are, the more society should stay out of your way as you pursue the bigger house or the fancier jet or the bigger yacht. Were there things that all of us might have liked to have? Sure. But partly, I think, there also has been a shift in culture. There was not that window into the lifestyles of the rich and famous. Kids weren't monitoring every day what Kim Kardashian was wearing, or where Kanye West was going on vacation, and thinking that somehow that was the mark of success.
After hearing the comment, Kris struck back with a lengthy reply for all of America to hear:
It's really great that people aspire to get a great job … but I wasn't aware that you could only set the bar so high and that we could only dream so big. I was taught, dream big, work hard, and you could have whatever you wanted.
I bet the President has some friends with 10,000 square foot houses and that you wouldn't mind going over there, Mr. President, while you were asking them to have a party for you when you were campaigning for dollars to run for president.
Well, Kris certainly taught Barack a lesson — if you mess with the bull, you get the horns!
Kris Jenner To President Obama: ‘Kim Kardashian Is The Hardest-Working Young Lady In The World’
But Kris didn’t stop there. She went on to tell Barack just how hard Kim and Kayne have worked for their success.
I find it so odd that he's picking on Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. Well, Kanye West, first of all, doesn't go on vacation. Ever. And Kim Kardashian is the hardest-working young lady in the world. She never sleeps, she never stops, she never slows down and works so hard for what she's got. So I started thinking about her 10,000 square foot house and I thought, "Wow, her job affords her to live in a 10,000 square foot house.” And I think, if I'm not mistaken, that Mr. President's job affords him to live in a 55,000 square foot house.
Oh, snap! Kris certainly has a point — for all their faults, Kim and Kayne are both workaholics and no one can question their work ethic — even the most powerful man in the world!
Whose side are you on, HollywoodLifers – Barack’s or Kris’? Do you think Barack’s diss was too harsh? Let us know!
Rob may have paid Kristen a visit recently, but the ‘Twilight’ heartthrob is actually trying hard to distance himself from his ex, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. Easier said than done!
We’ve never given up hope that Robert Pattinsonand Kristen Stewartwill reunite, but while Kristen isn’t over Rob yet, he’s making a big effort to move on and get some distance from the woman who broke his heart. Read on to find out all the EXCLUSIVE details about how Rob is trying to forget Kristen.
Kristen Stewart Sad That Robert Pattinson Has New Life Without Her
Kristen is definitely not over Rob, and she would be thrilled to run into him — but Rob doesn’t exactly feel the same way about her, a friend of the Twlight actress tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
It’s Rob who has distanced himself from Kristen. He rarely hangs out in the same area as Kristen and her friends. It’s just easier for him this way. He’s kind of had to start a new life with new friends. Kristen still has her old friends. Of course Kristen has some regrets — she feels like she and Rob would be still be together if she had never cheated on him with Rupert. She misses their friendship the most. He was the one person who really got her, who really understood her.
Poor Kristen! She’s completely surrounded by reminders of Rob, while he is off building a new life without her. It must be so hard for her to accept the fact that Rob wants to leave her behind, but it’s probably not that easy for R-Patz either. After all, he was the one who reached out to her when he went to her house recently.
"He stopped by on the weekend and they both spent some time together, catching up,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. ”Kristen was really happy to see him, but I think in the end they were both sad because they still have feelings for each other. It's not as simple as just getting back together. Seeing each other brought up a lot stuff for both of them. For now, work — not rebuilding a relationship — comes first. It's sad.”
It sounds like Rob and Kristen are still trying to figure out how to be friends after their difficult breakup, and maybe Rob thinks that taking some time to himself will help their relationship in the long run. We hope it all works out for them!
Rob & Kristen's 'Strained' Relationship
Twilight fans were crushed Aug. 11 when Rob and Kristen were no-shows at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards, despite Breaking Dawn Part 2 being up for seven major awards. So why weren’t they at the show?
“Basically they appreciate all the love that the show and the fans have given them and the movie, but they want to move on with their careers and do not want to always be known for the Twilight films,” a source close to the Twilight stars reveals.
We’re not surprised Rob and Kristen want to move on professionally — but apparently there was another reason behind their absence at the awards show.
"Rob and Kristen have a strained relationship," the source says, adding that Rob thought it would be "odd" to be reunite with Kristen "in a public setting with their peers."
And you can forget about a reunion in the near future. The source tells us that's "far from happening."
HollywoodLifers, do YOU think Rob is really over Kristen? Or is he just trying to forget about her because it’s too painful to be with her? Drop a comment with your thoughts on the situation below.
Kim and baby North are still staying at home together — but Kanye went out yachting in Greece over the August 10 weekend. HollywoodLife.com learned EXCLUSIVELY through a source close to Kanye that he was looking out for his family the entire trip!
Kanye West’s Vacation In Greece: Yeezy Leaves Kim Kardashian & Baby
Kanye wouldn’t just duck out on his girls — and when business takes him around the globe, he’s following projects that will support his family. “Everything he does is for Kim and the baby,” a source close to Kanye tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. ”So when he jets out, believe me, it’s for something that’s got a lot of money attached — and that money is for his family.”
Even if Kanye is out promoting his projects, wouldn’t Kim prefer his presence at home? “Kim knows what time it is. Kim also doesn’t need the constant attention from Kanye,” our source explains. After all, Kim’s got a great support system of family, friends, and helpers — so she’s not home alone to fend for herself. “She’s got more help that anyone one mom could ask for,” our source reveals.
Kanye West Leaves Kim Kardashian, Goes To Greece On Business
But just because Kim’s all set up at home, does that make it okay for Kanye to jet across the world without her at this time?
“If it’s about cash or something else that’s benefiting Kanye and the family, you can miss him with all that,” our source says. “That trip was for business only and he’s back at home anyway.” Kanye was thinking about Kim and North back home — but if he had to be away, hopefully he enjoyed gorgeous Greece at least little bit! After all, the Kardashian family traveled there to film for Keeping Up With The Kardashians, and now they can share their travel stories!
What do YOU think, HollyMoms? Did Kanye have a good enough reason to leave Kim and the baby?

Desiree Hartsock & Chris Siegfried Moving In Together In Seattle
Desiree, 27, and Chris, 28, moved to Seattle, and they documented their journey through a series of Instagram pics, and Desiree wrote “On the road again! ;) @ChrisRSiegfried #newchapter #roadtrips #mylove #goodbyeCali #helloSeattle.”
“Always hard to say goodbye..but hello to my new chapter with @chrisrsiegfried,” she added, but once arrived she tweeted “Home. Sweet. Home. #Seattle.”
Desiree is showing such commitment to Chris! She is giving their relationship 110 percent, because she wants to prove all the naysayers who say that she settled for second best wrong.
Chris & Desiree Talk Double Dating With Sean Lowe & Catherine Giudici
So who will Des and Chris hang out with in Seattle?
HollywoodLife.com exclusively interviewed the cute couple on August 6, and when asked if they would all go on a double date in Seattle with Catherine and Sean Lowe, Chris and Desiree laughed and said they were open to it!
“That is a very interesting question!” said Chris. “Yeah, it would be interesting,” added Desiree. ”We all share together,” joked Chris of their love square situation, but Desiree insisted that it could happen. “We like them both and I do speak to both of them, so that would be a possibility.”
It sounds like a great idea!
What do YOU think HollywoodLifers? Are you happy for Des and Chris? Do you think Des is cool for moving to Seattle?
Amanda’s role as ’70s porn star Linda Lovelace has definitely had an impact on her style and taste in fashion. Her vintage-inspired look at the London premiere of her new film ‘Lovelace’ was absolutely gorgeous — it perfectly complimented her skin tone and shapely body! Tell us what you think!
Amanda Seyfried, 27, stepped out in a stunning blue getup at the London screening of Lovelace. The actress is really starting to embody the image and personality of her new role in the racy 70s-set film — although her reality is a little less risque than what we can expect to see in the biopic! What do you think of Amanda’s retro frock?
Amanda Seyfried’s ‘Lovelace’ Premiere Dress — Stunning In Vintage-Inspired Gucci
Amanda and her co-star Peter Sarsgaard attended a special screening of their new film Lovelace at the Mayfair Hotel in London, England on August 12. Amanda showed up wearing a gorgeous Gucci Cruise 2014 ensemble, featuring a blue metallic chiffon short-sleeved shirt with matching skirt. A pair of navy blue hotpants peaked through the sheer sequined skirt, bringing a glamorous, vintage feel to her look.
The gorgeous actress paired the look with some sexy Givenchy black ankle strap heels, and wore her hair in a low messy bun with curls that fell in front of her face. The back of the sheer top exposed the sexy star’s criss-cross bra as she signed autographs. Amanda looked absolutely stunning, finishing off her look with a bright red lip!
Amanda’s role as Linda Lovelace in the new movie flashes us back to the early 1970s, a time when sex and nudity were not as openly accepted. The movie deals with these social issues, as well as the struggles Linda faced when pressured by her lover/boss to join the porn industry. This is a very moving story that explores the public scrutiny women endured in the ’70s. The movie is sure to be a hit, and Amanda looks amazing in the sneak preview pics!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Does Amanda look stunning in her Gucci getup at the Lovelace premiere in London? VOTE!
There you have it: ‘Fresh Prince’ can cheer anybody up — even 5-year-old Usher Raymond V who wasn’t even around when the popular 90s show hit the air! The little boy is recovering in the hospital after a frightening pool accident on August 5 and his mom, Tameka, is sending out Twitter and Instagram updates right from his bedside.
Woke up cheerful, happy and hungry. Watching Fresh Prince… What does he know about the Fresh Prince? Intense face. Lol.
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air can make anyone smile, of course! It’s great news to learn that the little boy is doing well and getting a moment to relax away from his parents’ very public custody hearing.
Tameka has also been tweeting updates of the moments she’s spending with her kids. She’s even sleeping at Usher V’s side! On August 10 she wrote:
I feel great this morning! My son and I got a good nights sleep. Didnt even hear the nurses fumbling around. Yaaay, I usually sleep so light.
She has also been retweeting motivational sayings from friends and fans who are coming out in full force to support Tameka and her family. Clearly Tameka is taking some comfort in reaching out to supporters on social media at this anxious time — but is there something more to that?
Tameka Foster’s Instagram Updates After Son’s Accident
Tameka’s Instagram updates keep fans updated on her son’s progress, – but they also show that she has been at her son’s side as much as possible since his scary accident. It’s totally natural that a mom would want to share as much time with possible with her kids after such a rattling encounter — especially Tameka, who lost her older son Kile Glover in a water accident just last year — but her ex, Usher, has stayed off Twitter and Instagram entirely during the course of this family incident.
What do YOU think, HollyMoms? Do Tameka’s Instagram updates seem genuine or posed for a judge? Do you think that Tameka’s trying to show she’s more involved with her kids than Usher is?

HollywoodLife.com has just learned that Kim won’t be showing up on the red carpet on Aug. 25 to accompany her beau! So it looks like we’ll have to wait a bit longer for her post-baby debut!
Kim Kardashianwill be watching the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards from home with baby North West. Kanye West is expected to perform BLKKK SKKKN Head at the show at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, and this will be his seventh VMAs performance! But HollywoodLife.com has learned that Kim will not be flying to the Big Apple to attend the show.
Kim Kardashian Not Going To VMAs With Kanye West
Even though Kanye will be making record history by tying with Madonna for the most VMA performances ever, he won’t have Kim by his side! We’re not exactly sure why she’s not going but we can can tell you 100% Kim won’t be there, according to our source very close to the reality star.
Perhaps Kim just isn’t ready to show off her body yet? We told you that Kim has been laying low and has no plans of coming out in public anytime soon. She’s been in hiding since June 15, so it should be too much longer until we see her gorgeous face!
Kanye has won three VMAs and we’re hoping that this new song shows the world that he’s going to be winning a lot more the following year!
Kim Not Selling Baby Pics
We told you that Kim and Kanye have decided to no longer sell their baby pics of North. Even though they could have gotten upwards of $3 million dollars, they’ve decided not to. We’re thinking they might pull a Beyonce and post the photos on social media or just hold out for Vanity Fair or even Vogue.
HollywoodLifers, sound off below and tell us if you’re surprised Kim isn’t going to the VMAs.
