KIM KARDASHIAN WANTS TO TEAM UP WITH GRETA THUNBERG

From reality star to prison reformer to climate activist? Kim Kardashian, 38, is adding another line to her crowded resume, just as she comes off another prison reform victory. On Monday, the lawyer-in-training and mom of four revealed that Momolu Stewart, 39, was walking free after 23 years behind bars for murder thanks to her ongoing efforts.

Kardashian has been making headlines for months for her high-profile meetings with President Trump and successful bid to reform prisons. Thus far, she has helped campaign to free 17 federal inmates who were serving life sentences for low-level drug crimes.

Now, it seems Kardashian is setting her eyes on environmental activism. On Tuesday, she hailed the 16-year-old Swedish climate crusader Greta Thunberg, telling reports at the World Congress on Information Technology in Armenia that she'd love to have her over for dinner.

Kardashian said: "She is such an amazing young girl, and so brave and courageous to stand up to these grown-ups that can be very scary and for her to be so open and honest is exactly what we need. Climate change is a serious problem."

Kardashian, who has more than 150 million followers on Instagram, said she'd be willing to share tips with Thunberg's parents.

"Speaking on a big platform invites a lot of different opinions and personalities and how they (parents) manage that," Kardashian said.

TRUE HOLLYWOOD STORY

Meanwhile, Kardashian is also opening up for E! True Hollywood Story's "Who Is Kim Kardashian West?" set to air Sunday, October 13th.

Available already on YouTube, Kardashian and her family and friends get candid about her rise to fame. She discusses how her father Robert Kardashian Sr.'s work on O.J. Simpson's murder trial divided her family: "One day my dad took me and Kourtney into the trial, and then my mom happened to be sitting with Nicole's family, and we looked over and my mom was looking at us, like, 'What are you girls doing here? Why are you sitting on that side?'"

She also opens up about how her Paris robbery changed her. "There's those moments in like that really change you, and shake you to your core. My robbery was definitely that moments for me," she reflects. "As crazy as this sounds, I wouldn't give up that experience for the lessons I learned from it... Material things used to be so important to me. I measured my success by my material things. But there is nothing material that is important to me."

JENNIFER ANISTON SHARES HER HARVEY WEINSTEIN STORY

Jennifer Aniston, 50, told Variety for its Power of Women issue, about her own experience with Harvey Weinstein. Aniston said that Weinstein, who has been accused of misconduct, including rape, by dozens of women, never physically attacked her, but he did behave like a bully. (Weinstein is facing criminal charges in NYC for assault and rape, and has pleaded not guilty. He is set to go to trial in January of 2020).

Aniston said that Weinstein tried to talk the fashion icon into wearing dresses made by his wife, Georgina Chapman. She said he made the request for the premiere of the 2005 film Derailed that she starred in and he produced: "I remember, right when Georgina's clothing line Marchesa was starting. That's when he came to visit me in London while we were shooting. He'd be like, ‘Ok, so I'd like you to wear one of these to the premiere.'"

The actress continued: "And I went through the book, and at the time, it wasn't what it is today. It was not for me. He was like, ‘You have to wear the dress.' That was my only bullying. And I was like, ‘No, I will not wear the dress.'"

Aniston is co-starring with Reese Witherspoon in Apple+'s The Morning Show, which follows the story of two female news anchors will fill in for their disgraced colleague. She says she researched actual morning news shows that dealt with those very issues, including the Today Show, where host Matt Lauer was fired for alleged misconduct.

That one, she tells Variety, hit her hard.

"I was so devastated," Aniston says. "It's such a strange thing; it felt oddly like my dad did something terrible. I trusted him and had been interviewed by him. He was there for so many moments in my life. And when Friends was ending, it was Katie Couric and Matt interviewing us."

The Morning Show, she tells Variety, is modeled on many of the men—famous and not—who fell during the #MeToo movement: "All fictional, but also kind of highlighting aspects of the archetype of a charming narcissist, of a generation of men that didn't think that was bad behavior. That's just the way it works. And men are flirts and women are coy and find it flattering. And thankfully, with the sacrifices of these women who have come forward, this isn't going to happen anymore. It's wonderful that you're accountable and you have to check yourself."

PRINCE HARRY SUES ‘THE SUN,’ ‘DAILY MAIL’ FOR ALLEGED PHONE HACK

Prince Harry is declaring war on the British tabloid press. The royal has filed claims in court "regarding the illegal interception of voicemail messages," a Buckingham Palace spokesperson tells CNN.

This move was made public Friday, days after Harry attacked the bloids for publishing a private letter from his wife Meghan Markle to her estranged father Thomas Markle. The actual filings were reportedly made at the High Court in London by Harry's legal team on September 27th.

A spokesperson for The Sun's parent company, the Rupert Murdoch-owned News Group Newspapers (NGN), told CNN: "We confirm that a claim has been issued by the Duke of Sussex. We have no further comment to make at the current time."

In his original statement Harry blasted the media: "Unfortunately, my wife has become one of the latest victims of a British tabloid press that wages campaigns against individuals with no thought to the consequences -- a ruthless campaign that has escalated over the past year, throughout her pregnancy and while raising our newborn son."

He went on to reference his mother Princess Diana's untimely death and his fear for Meghan's safety: "Though this action may not be the safe one, it is the right one. Because my deepest fear is history repeating itself. I've seen what happens when someone I love is commoditized to the point that they are no longer treated or seen as a real person. I lost my mother and now I watch my wife falling victim to the same powerful forces. We thank you, the public, for your continued support. It is hugely appreciated. Although it may not seem like it, we really need it."

JERSEY SHORE’S RONNIE ORTIZ-MAGRO CHARGED WITH KIDNAPPING

The Jersey Shore star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro's relationship with girlfriend Jen Harley has been tumultuous from the get-go. The pair, who share an 18-month-old daughter, have broken up and made up multiple times, but their latest rift reportedly turned violent. The 33-year-old Ortiz-Magro was arrested near L.A. at an Airbnb that he and Harley were renting, according to reports.

Ortiz-Magro was high on cocaine, and his temper flared, according to reports. He allegedly hit her and chased her with a knife; police booked him for kidnapping, but he posted the $100,000 bail and was released.

Harley was spotted picking him up from jail with their baby.

Shortly before his arrest, Ortiz-Magro was discussing his sobriety with Us Weekly. He told the mag that CBD helped keep him off booze and drugs. He said he first tried CBD after surgery: "I'd be in pain and I'm, like, I feel good! I don't feel a nasty feeling after, I don't feel like I need more. I feel like it lasts."

He continued: "You know, and it's not like when you take pills, I feel like you're, like, I gotta take four now and then I gotta take another four. And no. It's, like, one drop, boom. With the pills, it's like, 200 milligrams, that's all you get. With CBD, you could control your own, what you want to do."

Ortiz-Magro also told People that the public's perception of his relationship with Harley is overly negative, and that their connection is real and deep. "They ask why do we stay with each other? And it's because we know what we have is real," he said. "And at the end of the day, people don't see what we have, they see what MTV wants you guys to see."

ROBERT PATTINSON HAS NO CLUE HOW HE SNAGGED ‘BATMAN’ ROLE

Robert Pattinson is set to play Bruce Wayne in the new Batman film, but he's not sure why, he tells Esquire U.K. In a new cover story, he said: "It's kind of insane. I was so far away from ever thinking it was a realistic prospect. I literally do not understand how I've got it, at all."

Pattinson, 33, wasn't the only person who was shocked that the Twilight star snagged the role. Still, Twitter's reaction wasn't as tart as Pattinson expected. He told Variety recently the backlash was "less vitriolic" than he expected.

But director Robert Eggers was all in. "Even in the Twilight years I never said, 'Oh, he's just a pretty boy,'" Eggers told Esquire. "I always thought there was something interesting about him. I could tell that he wanted to be a great actor. And in the past years it's been very clear that he is."

As was co-star Willem Defoe, who said that Pattinson clearly as the perfect jaw for the role.

After laying low following his unexpected rocket to fame on Twilight, Pattinson said he's ready for the limelight again.

"For a long time you're very self-conscious in the street," he told the magazine. "You're hiding a lot, so on set you have an excuse to be wild. It's like being an adrenaline junkie. And also, when you don't know how to do something, why not just run headfirst into a wall? See what happens. I haven't got any other ideas."

MADELAINE PETSCH SAYS RIVERDALE HELPED HER UNDERSTAND BULLYYING: Riverdale's Madelaine Petsch tells Seventeen that she hasn't always been as confident—or mean—as her fan-fave character Cheryl Bloom. "I've learned the mindset of the people who bullied me very well because Cheryl's been a bully on the show," the 25-year-old explained. "I've learned that the people who've made the most fun of me as a kid probably had their own s--t that they were going through. And so, they were taking it out on other people. And that breaks my heart." The show has also helped her embrace her red hair. "Finally, my hair and I have a great relationship," Petsch said. "And when fans tell me they're being bullied, I remind them that the things they're being bullied for now are the things that make them unique. When you get older, those things are going to make you stand out."

"So, we all know Cady was from Africa," Lohan says in an Instagram video shared Thursday. "But this year, we want to help with building a well in Uganda."

IS LORI LOUGHLIN PITCHING A TELL-ALL?

Lori Loughlin may be ready to tell the story of her role in the college admissions scandal that has snared her, husband Mossimo Giannulli, Felicity Huffman and dozens of others.

Radar reports that Loughlin, who pleaded not guilty to shelling out $500K in a bid to scam her daughters' way into University of Southern California, is eager to sell her story. (ICYMI, she and Giannulli allegedly had fixer William "Rick" Singer help get daughters Isabella, 21, and Olivia, 19, into USC as crew team recruits, even though neither of them played.)

"She's talking to agents about turning her prison experience into a cash-grabbing book and movie," one insider said. "They've assured her it will make millions."

The 55-year-old will find out fate soon enough. Next up is a court date this Wednesday. The pair are facing up to 40 years behind bars. Huffman, who pleaded guilty in exchange for a lighter sentence, was sentenced to two weeks behind bars for the relatively smaller crime of paying $15K to pump up her daughter's SAT scores.

According to Entertainment Tonight, Loughlin's "anxiety is through the roof, she is terrified, and she's been consumed with trying to put on a happy face but it's not easy under the circumstances."

The source continues: "Lori is sticking with her story that she and her husband were scammed by Rick Singer. She has claimed to friends that they always thought the money was going to a charity through the school. She says she doesn't feel for one minute they were breaking the law."
