Kris Jenner on O.J. Simpson: “I Will Always Feel Guilty”

A new documentary titled, The Secret Tapes of the O.J. Case: The Untold Story aired on September 30, 2015 and Kris Jenner (formerly Kardashian) weighed in on the trial and, what she feels, was her own inability to save a friend from domestic violence.

Incredibly, it’s been two decades since the O.J. Simpson trial but it remains a relevant topic of conversation to this day. Jenner, who was a friend of Nicole Brown Simpson continues to be haunted by the red flags she failed to see before Nicole’s murder (along with Ronald Goldman) in Los Angeles on June 12, 1994.

The couples had been close for years (the football legend was even a groomsman at their 1978 wedding) so, when O.J. was accused of killing his ex-wife, Robert Kardashian acted as an adviser to the legal team of his old friend. O.J. was eventually acquitted of the crime.

Bindi Irwin Dances in Tribute to Late Crocodile Hunter

There was a time when the Crocodile Hunter was the most talked about personality on television. Although, many had made jokes about his death for years (since he was always surrounded by the world’s deadliest creatures), it was still a shock when it happened in 2006. He left behind his wife, Terri, and their two children, Bindi and Bob.

Since Steve Irwin’s passing, daughter, Bindi, has worked tirelessly to preserve her father’s memory despite her young age. Now, at 17-year-old, she’s a contestant on Dancing with the Stars and, this past week, her touching tribute to her father earned her the season’s first perfect 10.

In a pre-recorded segment from Monday’s episode, she said: "What shaped me the most would probably be when my dad passed away. It's been nine years and I've never really dwelled on that point. I think I'm ready to tell that story." She continued: "It took a really long time to understand what actually happened. For the rest of my life, I'll kind of feel like he's going to come home."

Cancer Diagnosis Put Strain on Amy Robach and Andrew Shue’s Marriage

Even the strongest relationships can suffer from a serious medical diagnosis. Good Morning America host, Amy Robach, and her husband, actor Andrew Shue, learned this the hard way.  After just three years of marriage, the couple were blindsided to learn that Robach had developed breast cancer.

On-Air Discovery

In 2013, Amy Robach took part in Good Morning America’s “October Pink Initiative” by choosing to have a mammogram on the air. The 42-year-old was trying to convince readers to undergo regular screenings when she was blindsided by her own diagnosis.

Children Involved

Soon after the sobering news, Robach told PEOPLE: "Telling my children was the toughest part but that's when you get strong, because you have to be strong for other people." Between the two of them, they have five children from previous relationships - Shue’s sons Nate, 19, Aiden, 17, and Wyatt, 12, and Robach’s daughters Annalise, 9, and Ava, 12. Undoubtedly, this added to the stress of the situation.

Cathriona White’s family were left stunned by her sudden death earlier this week. The on-again-off-again girlfriend of actor, Jim Carrey, was just 30 years old when she was found. It appears as though she committed suicide.

The Irish-born makeup artist was “pronounced dead at 8:40pm [Monday] night at a residence” according to Los Angeles Assistant Chief Coroner, Ed Winter. Although, there were indications of suicide, an official cause of death cannot be determined until an autopsy has been completed. As Winter added: "It was reported as a possible suicide. There evidently was a note found. There were pills located near her… final cause of death won't be released until we get full toxicology and tests back."

In a statement to the Irish Independent, White’s family stated: "The family of Cathriona White sincerely regret the untimely passing of their beloved daughter and sister. Cathriona was a shining light in our lives who was loved deeply by her entire family. We will miss her terribly and at this difficult time we ask to be left in private to mourn our loss.

New Movie Helped Andrew Garfield Heal Family Wounds

It's been a weird time in Hollywood for Andrew Garfield. He lost his role as Spider-Man and things got a little quiet for a while. People often say that things happen for a reason and, maybe, he was meant to take a break from the blockbusters in favor of a small, independent project. It sounds as if the turn of events truly worked out in his favor.

Garfield is currently starring in 99 Homes, a film in which he portrays a single father who has lost his childhood home to foreclosure. In a desperate attempt to regain the house that he shares with his mother (Laura Dern) and son (Noah Lomax), he actually goes to work for the man who evicted them.

The British actor was affected by what his character went through and revealed that it brought back memories of his parents struggling similarly when he was a child. He explained to E! News: "When I was between the ages of 11 and 17, there was this tension in our house. There was this pressure. I could feel it subliminally even though the conversations were happening behind closed doors."

Bobby Brown Speaks About Daughter’s Death for First Time

It’s been a couple months since Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away and her famous father, Bobby Brown, has opened up for the first time about the sad situation. Becoming emotional several times during the interview, he expressed the opinion that, had he been with his daughter in the days leading up to being found unresponsive in a bathtub in her home, she probably would be alive today.

With his wife, Alicia Etheredge, by his side, Brown said: "If I could have been there two days before, it wouldn't have went down like that.” Of course, that can be said of almost any tragedy. It’s very common for surviving family members to think about how a change in circumstances could have prevented the loss of a loved one.

Kimberly Williams-Paisley Finds Lessons in Mother’s Dementia

Understandably, watching a parent suffer is a painful process but Kimberly Williams-Paisley has found a way to learn lessons from her mother’s diagnosis of primary progressive aphasia 10 years ago. In addition to showing great inner strength, the actress is an example of how we can choose to support loved ones coping with dementia.

A New Kind of Love

Williams-Paisley was determined to not allow the disease to destroy her relationship with her mom so, instead of fighting the process, she chose to start loving the person her mother was becoming.

As she explains to People magazine: "People change and evolve in life anyway and this is just an extreme evolution in my mother. There were ways that she changed along the way that I loved. She became goofier and funnier. She became more accepting of me in a lot of ways. There were times when I was a mother and she just delighted in me, whereas in the past, she may have been a little more critical or she might have meddled a little more.”

Why Are Celebrities Sleeping with Nannies?

Hollywood has been rocked by the allegations that Ben Affleck cheated on his wife, Jennifer Garner, with their nanny. After a decade of marriage, and three children, it seemed like their relationship was reasonably solid. Fans were disappointed, however, when the pair announced their impending divorce. Garner is a beautiful, successful woman and Affleck could have had an affair with almost any woman in the world. Why would he cheat? More specifically, why would he chose to do it with an employee?

Not the First

Jude Law and Ethan Hawke have been linked to nannies and Robin Williams even married (and fathered two children with) his son’s babysitter, Marsha Garces. Their marriage lasted nearly two decades.

Now, Ben Affleck is rumored to have been spending quality time with his children’s caregiver, 28-year-old Christine Ouzounian. While he has denied these allegations, Garner continues to move forward with their sudden divorce.

Bachelorette Star Chris Bukowski Reveals Anxiety Struggles

For many viewers, The Bachelor and The Bachelorette are guilty pleasures with Bachelor Pad and Bachelor in Paradise filling in during the summer months. Anyone who has watched the last few seasons will be familiar with Chris Bukowski but they may not be aware of how being on the show changed his life - for the worst. The reality television star shared an open letter detailing his experience and what it has cost him.

First Appearance

Emily Maynard was a contestant on The Bachelor and was, ultimately, chosen by Brad Womack. Unfortunately, their relationship did not last and she returned in 2012 as The Bachelorette. During that season, one of her suitors was Bukowski. Of his first foray into Bachelor Nation, he explained: "My first go-around on The Bachelorette was an amazing experience because I had no expectations. I met a great girl, made friends, traveled the world, and put myself out there for people I'd never met before...I was 25 and on top of the world."

Rather than return to his normal life, like most former contestants, Bukowski accepted a spot on Bachelor Pad 3 and it was, literally, a game (and life) changer.
