HILARIA BALDWIN EXPLAINS WHY SHE SHARED NEWS OF MISCARRIAGE

Hilaria Baldwin recently shared that she was "most likely experiencing a miscarriage" on Instagram. She said she wanted to discuss the experience to fight back against the culture of secrecy and shame many women feel when they miscarry.

Hilaria, who shares four children (the youngest being 10 months) with Alec Baldwin appeared on The Today Show Tuesday to discuss why she decided to be so open about it.

She told hosts Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie: "This is something that has not been easy. I understand it and I wanted to come out and speak about it because it's something that so many people deal with and, as women, we're trained to deal with it silently."

She said that she went in for a routine ultrasound, and the technician noticed the baby’s heartbeat was slow. "I'm pretty sure this is not going to stick," Baldwin told told Kotb and Guthrie, saying she would find out for sure later that day.

She added: "When we agree to be parents, we have to accept the good and the bad. Whether our child gets a scraped knee or gets their heart broken as a teenager or gets really sick. Or God forbid something worse. We have to realize it’s not all diapers and blankets and hair bows. We have to open our hearts and realize there are going to be hard moments, too."

Hilaria also wrote an essay for Glamour. In it, she wrote: "Even before I got pregnant, I thought about what it would be like to have to share news like this. Having a miscarriage would hurt if I went through it in silence and it would hurt if I lost the pregnancy in front of everybody, I realized. At least sharing my story might help me and other women dealing with a miscarriage to find support. Almost every single one of my friends has experienced some kind of struggle with infertility or miscarriage. I had such a fear of miscarriage with each of my pregnancies that I'd google the probability of miscarriage each day. And yet we're still so quiet about it. For me, this doesn't make sense."

FELICITY HUFFMAN TO PLEAD GUILTY, EXPRESSES ‘SHAME’

Felicity Huffman has agreed to plead guilty over her role in the sweeping college admissions scandal, according to Page Six. Fourteen parents in total are pleading guilty, federal prosecutors say.

Lori Loughlin, who has also been accused in the case, is not among those pleading guilty.

Huffman released a statement saying: "I am pleading guilty to the charge brought against me by the United States Attorney's Office. I am in full acceptance of my guilt, and with deep regret and shame over what I have done, I accept full responsibility for my actions and will accept the consequences that stem from those actions."

"I am ashamed of the pain I have caused my daughter, my family, my friends, my colleagues and the educational community," the statement continued. "I want to apologize to them and, especially, I want to apologize to the students who work hard every day to get into college, and to their parents who make tremendous sacrifices to support their children and do so honestly. My daughter knew absolutely nothing about my actions, and in my misguided and profoundly wrong way, I have betrayed her. This transgression toward her and the public I will carry for the rest of my life. My desire to help my daughter is no excuse to break the law or engage in dishonesty."

Huffman reportedly paid $15,000 to get her daughter help cheating on her SATs. Her husband William H. Macy was not charged.

JUDGE CONSIDERS UNSEALING FILES IN JUSSIE SMOLLETT CASE

A Cook County judge may rule in the coming weeks on whether or not the files in Empire star Jussie Smollet’s case will be unsealed. Lawyers for several media organizations filed motions seeking to make the records public because of the national attention to case and the prosecutors’ sudden and unexpected decision last week to drop all charges in the case.

In exchange for dropping the charges, Smollett forfeited $10,000 in the bail he posted in Chicago. During the same hearing, Smollett’s lawyers asked Judge Steven Watkins to seal all of the records be in the case. Prosecutors issued no objections, and Watkins complied.

On Tuesday, Watkins said that would be decided in writing around May 23rd.

"The file is sealed," Watkins said Tuesday, noting that under the law the file is not simply tossed out but can’t be viewed by anyone without a court order. "It’s not destroyed."

Support for Smollett in Hollywood, meanwhile, is lukewarm. Ava DuVernay has supported him, while Chris Rock, and most recently Tracy Morgan, have criticized him.

On Monday night during his appearance on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, Morgan cracked jokes about Smollett's lleged hate crime.

"Yeah, they gave me a role on Empire," Morgan started off. "Contractually, they gave me millions of dollars. Contractually, all I gotta do is not fake a hate crime."

Then he added, "Jussie!"

ALYSSA MILANO ROASTED FOR DEFENDING JOE BIDEN AMID ALLEGATIONS OF INAPPROPRIATE BEHAVIOR

Staunch #MeToo advocate Alyssa Milano is getting heat on social media for going to bat to defend Joe Biden as he appears to be gearing up for a 2020 presidential run. Meghan McCain also came to Biden’s defense after two women accused the former vice president of inappropriate touching.

On Friday, Nevada assemblywoman Lucy Flores claimed in an essay in The Cut that Biden gave her a kiss on the back of her head that made her feel uncomfortable on the 2014 campaign trail. On Monday, a second woman, Amy Lappos, came forward in The Hartford Courant, saying that during a 2009 fundraiser in Greenwich, CT, that made her feel disrespected.

After the first allegation emerged, Biden defended himself, while still empowering women. "In my many years on the campaign trail and in public life, I have offered countless handshakes, hugs, expressions of affection, support and comfort," the statement reads. "And not once -- never -- did I believe I acted inappropriately. If it is suggested I did so, I will listen respectfully. But it was never my intention."

Milano, who used social media as a platform during the sex scandals that rocked Hollywood in 2017, encouraging women to speak out, defended Biden. She alluded to his work with the 2014 "It’s on Us" campaign, which was designed to prevent sex assault at college.

"I am proud to call Joe Biden a friend," she wrote. "He has been a leader and a champion on fighting violence against women for many years, and I have been fortunate to accompany him to events with survivors where he has listened to their stories, empathized with them, and comforted them. That's who Joe Biden is -- a warm, generous individual who believes its on all of us to pay attention to women's stories and experiences."

Her support was not well-received by all. Many social media users accused Milano of being a "partisan hypocrite". Many others asked her, "What happened to believe all women," a common refrain Milano and other #MeToo advocates have used when friends of the accused come to their defense.

"Fame was fun at first, but the older I get, the more private I want to be," Henson tells Variety. "I think there's a misconception with people in the limelight that we have it all together, and because we have money now and are living out our dreams, everything is fine. That's not the case. When they yell 'Cut' and 'That's a wrap,' I go home to very serious problems. I'm still a real human." The 48-year-old adds: "I suffer from depression. My anxiety is kicking up even more every day, and I've never really dealt with anxiety like that. It's something new."
