WHY DEMI MOORE AGREED TO THREESOMES WITH ASHTON KUTCHER: In her new memoir, Inside Out, Demi Moore discussed her decision to have threesomes with ex-husband Ashton Kutcher. (They were married 2005-2011). In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres Tuesday, she explained: "I don't think it should be implied that he instigated. I think it was—and again in trying to keep the perspective on my story—he expressed something that was of a fantasy and it was in my efforts to want to please and be what I thought he wanted." What's the craziest thing you've done to keep a relationship going?

JON CRYER RESPONDS TO VIRGINITY-STEALING CLAIMS: Jon Cryer has been as transfixed as the rest of the nation with Demi Moore's juicy memoir, Inside Out (it dropped Tuesday). Trouble is, he's one of the subjects she covered in her tell-all. She wrote that during the filming of 1984's No Small Affair, she deflowered him. Spilled Moore: "It pains me to think of how callous I was with his feelings — that I stole what could have been such an important and beautiful moment from him." While Cryer, 54, doesn't blame her for making that assumption, she was off-base. He tweeted:"Well, the good thing about this is she doesn't have to feel bad about it anymore, because while I'm sure she was totally justified making that assumption based on my my skill level (and the stunned look on my face at the time), I had actually lost my virginity in high school." He added, "But she's right the other part, I was over the moon for her during a very troubled time in her life. I have nothing but affection for her and not a regret in the world."

MEGHAN MARKLE DOWNGRADES ENGAGEMENT RING: Meghan Markle opted to leave her mega-sparkler of an engagement ring at home while on tour in Africa with Prince Harry and their baby Archie.

She opted for the rings because she wants to be low profile during meet and greets, according to reports.

JOAQUIN PHOENIX SHUTS DOWN INTERVIEWER: Joaquin Phoenix stormed furiously out of an interview when asked if his Joker portrayal could incite mentally ill fans. "Aren't you worried that this film might perversely end up inspiring exactly the kind of people it's about, with potentially tragic results?" the critic asked Phoenix, noting his Joker was "an unstable, self-pitying loner with a mass-shooter mindset. He walked out, and agreed to return an hour later after his PR rep negotiated a conversation.

MARY WILSON FIRST CELEBRITY CONTESTANT TO BE ELIMINATED FROM SEASON 28 OF ‘DWTS’

Former Supreme Mary Wilson cha-cha-ed her way through the latest round of ABC's Dancing with the Stars last night, but it wasn't enough to keep her on the show for another week.

During last night's episode, audiences watched as the 12 competing celebrities performed their second dances for audiences and judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli.

After two hours of live performances, it was revealed at the end of the episode that two celebrity-pro dancer pairings were in jeopardy of elimination: The Supremes' Mary Wilson and Brandon Armstrong, and Ray Lewis and Cheryl Burke.

After their names were announced as being in the bottom two, Wilson and Armstrong, and Lewis and Burke joined co-hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews on the ballroom floor for the judges' verdict.

After Inaba chose to save Wilson and Tonioli chose to save Lewis, head judge Goodman made the final decision. Ultimately, Goodman elected to keep Lewis in the competition, which meant Wilson was the first Season 28 contestant to be sent home.

"If I'm totally honest, neither of these couples should be in this position," said Goodman. "However, they are and it's very difficult because one, I want to judge from my heart; the other, I have to judge with my brain. And my brain says I've got to save Ray and Cheryl."

For the second week of competition, Wilson, 75, and Armstrong performed a cha cha and earned a 15/30 from the judges while Lewis and Burke danced a foxtrot and were also awarded a 15/30.

Reflecting on her short time on DWTS, the singer said, "It was fabulous. I enjoyed it so much."

The eliminations work a bit different this year. Each week, after the bottom two couples are revealed, judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli will have a chance to save one of the in-jeopardy pairs, while the other will be eliminated for good. If Carrie Ann and Bruno are divided in their decision, head judge Len will cast the tie-breaking vote.

Last night, Hannah Brown topped the leaderboard, with a score of 24 out of 30. Lamar Odom was once again at the bottom with 12.

Odom opened up about his health issues and 2015 overdose last night. During the episode, the 39-year-old former basketball player attributed his score on last week's premiere (a score of 11 out of 30) to suffering short-term memory loss following his 2015 hospitalization, during which his life hung in the balance. He indicated that the memory loss was causing him to forget dance steps.

"Four years ago, I was living in Las Vegas, went to go hang out in a place I had no business. I had an overdose," Odom said, adding that he did not do drugs that night and may have had his drink spiked. "While I was in a coma, I had 12 strokes and six heart attacks."

‘FLEABAG’ AND ‘GAME OF THRONES’ WIN BIG AT 2019 EMMYS

Fleabag and Game of Thrones won the Best Comedy and Best Drama at the 71st Annual Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday (September 22nd.) The stars converged at the Microsoft Theater in L.A. for TV's biggest night. The show went host-free, following Oscars' lead, but there were still many Hollywood moments.

The party got started with a cartoon Homer Simpson literally doing a face-plant onstage, and Anthony Andersonrushing onto stage and declaring, "We will not let the Empire fall!" as he ran about mock-organizing the show backstage and dinging Game of Thrones with a Starbucks coffee reference. Then Bryan Cranstonc ame onstage to wax philosophical about the current state of TV, declaring "it's never been better."

Going in, HBO's Game of Thrones led the pack, garnering 32 nominations. Next up was Amazon Prime's The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, with 20 nominations. All told, HBO snagged an amazing 137 nominations. Netflix nipped at its heels with 117.

Ultimately,Fleabag won big time, snagging Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Lead Actress for Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Outstanding Directing. Game of Thrones also brought home gold, landing Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Supporting Actor for Peter Dinklage. Chernobyl triumphed with three awards, Outstanding Limited Series trophy as well as writing and directing awards.

ADDITIONAL HIGHLIGHTS:

Alex Borstein gave an inspiring acceptance speech for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, thanking the show's creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, but also her mother and 102-year-old grandmother, a Holocaust survivor who dared to "step out of line" and escape death at her concentration camp. Before she walked onstage, the camera zoomed in on her doing a shot.

A clearly delighted Phoebe Waller-Bridge told the crowd that she was just excited that a "dirty, pervy" woman can win an Emmy for Outstanding Writing.

Jimmy Kimmel and Stephen Colbert joke that "this show sucks" without a host, but they seem to hit a nerve online.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge won the award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series in what many saw as a surprising upset for Julie Louis-Dreyfus, who was accepted to win for her final season of Veep.

The audience seemed to guffaw when Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner came onstage and pretended Keeping Up With the Kardashians is 100% "unscripted" and "unfiltered." Said Kardashian: "Our family knows first-hand how truly compelling television comes from real people just being themselves."

Rupaul gave an upbeat speech thanking everyone for the Outstanding Competiton Program award, and seguing into a push for viewers to register to vote.

The cast of Game of Thrones reunited onstage to present the award for Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or a Movie. Patricia Arquette graciously accepted the award, then addressed her sister Alexis Arquette's death. "I just have to say I'm grateful to be working, I'm grateful at 50 to be getting the best parts of my life, and that's great," Arquette said. "But in my heart, I'm so sad. I lost my sister Alexis, and that trans people are still being persecuted, and I'm in mourning every day of my life."

Jharrel Jerome got the audience as excited—on its feet and clapping excited—as he was with his from-the-heart speech, thanking his mother and When They See Us' creator, Ava DuVernay for his win as lead actor. He also addressed the men the series was about, who DuVernay brought as her guests. "Most importantly, this is for the men that we know as the Exonerated Five. Thank you so much. It's an honor; it's a blessing," Jerome concluded, as the audience rose to their feet and applauded.

Emmys commentator Thomas Lennon raised eyebrows online when he gave Felicity Huffman a shout-out. He didn't name names, but referred to any ex-Emmy winning stars who may be watching from prison. He said: "Hopefully those two weeks are going to fly by." Huffman, who won an Emmy in 2005 for Desperate Housewives, has been sentenced to two weeks in prison for her role in the college bribery scandal.

While accepting her award as Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series, Michelle Williams thanked her bosses in Fosse/Verde for not only paying her equally, but also listening to her when she made expensive requests and not "presuming to know more" than she did about her own needs. "I see this as an acknowledgement of what is possible when a woman is trusted to discern her own needs, feels safe enough to voice them and respected enough that they'll be heard," she said.

John Oliver thanked his dog for "letting us give him belly rubs" and helping to produce "that piece on the Senate filibuster" when he accepted the award for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Series for Last Week Tonight With John Oliver.

Billy Porter gave a humble, emotional speech while accepting the award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series, thanking Pose's creator Ryan Murphy and calling on all actors to change the "molecular structure" of the country through empathetic and thoughtful portrayals.

Jodie Comer won lead actress for Killing Eve, against Sandra Oh, who was considered a front-runner (and co-stars with her in the same show).

Phoebe Waller-Bridge seemed unable to believe her good fortune after winning Outstanding Comedy Series.

Game of Thrones gave a gracious adieu to the series and the Emmys after winning Outstanding Drama Series.

LUCY BOYNTON ON WHAT SHE DOESN’T LIKE ABOUT DATING RAMI MALEK

Lucy Boynton and Rami Malek's relationship may seem pretty dreamy to us regular mortals, but it actually has some serious drawbacks. Boynton chatted with Porter for a cover story, and revealed that her Bohemian Rhapsody co-star's hotness can excite a certain level of fanaticism in others that is off-putting. (The pair confirmed their romance in January.)

Boynton said that the 38-year-old Malek's work on the hit TV series Mr. Robot commands a serious fan base.

The 25-year-old said: "It's lovely to see people who are excited about his work—if they've seen Mr. Robot or Freddie—but it's just that thing of people grabbing him. I mean, you'd never grab a complete stranger in the street. And I think there's a sense of ownership. It's OK to just come up to someone, with your camera already out, and disregard whoever they're with. It happened when we were with my mother, and we were just shoved out of the way. It's quite shocking."

Boynton also sang Malek's praises, explaining how deeply he gets involved in every project he commits to.

"I'd never really seen that in a lead actor before, being involved in every corner," she said, "I've tried to do that, being more aware. I think I've become more opinionated and I've got a better vocabulary, in terms of understanding a project, and my own tastes."

Boynton said that she's taking notes because she wants to spend her life acting. She said: "He's been doing it longer. And I think the main thing is to take your time. I want to do this for the rest of my life, and it's easy to think that you have to keep the momentum going, a phrase you hear a lot. It's tempting once you've done one thing to quickly sign on to something else, so you have something to talk about. I've learnt that's not the case, and that you can take your time to do really good-quality pieces rather than just doing everything."

KOURTNEY KARDASHIAN ROASTED FOR $100K PLAYHOUSE AS SHE AND KIM TALK NANNY ABUSE

The Kardashian-Jenner kids are living their best life, and it's way fancier than yours. Kim, Khloe and Kylie have all taken turns getting slammed on social media for various wild expenditures on their mini-me's, from fancy purses and toy cars to shoes that definitely cost more than anything you own. Now it's Kourtney's turn.

She gave Architectural Digest an insider tour of the playhouse she built for her trio of tots, and it's so big and, er, distinctive, it earned more than its share of wolf whistles on YouTube. Here's the deal: Kourtney claims she shelled out $100K for a giant playhouse for Mason, Penelope and Reign that includes a white rug, white furniture, giant stuffed animals but no toys. That's right, folks. White.

Here's some of the feedback she got:

"Ok kids and white rugs and pillows and sofa? What's that! Way too clean and organized kids aren't playing in there.."

"They should have had help with the design. For kids, it looks cold and unusable."

"I bet the kids NEVER play in that room. It's just for the show. It has boring toys that are just used as decorations. White interiors with a white rug and white furniture? Definitely not kid friendly."

"I think that Mickey and Minnie are little bit creepy..."

"No toys? Just some overstuffed animals? Bizarre."

"Imagine sitting at the dead of the night in that room . No lights . Sitting on that couch looking straight to the black Mickey mouse on it .... dudeeee I'd be scared of ittt like wthelll."

NANNY ABUSE?
Meanwhile, Kim and Kourtney shared stories about their kids and nannies on Sunday's Keeping Up With the Kardashians, and it was honestly kind of upsetting.

Kourtney confesses: "The nanny was putting her in the car and Penelope scratched her face, but P can be out of control. I think she blacks out and does these wild things."

Kim adds: "Over the weekend, North tried to bite my nanny and said, ‘I don't want a nanny anymore, you can go home.' And I was like, ‘You can't fire our nanny.' "

Then, grandmother of 10 Kris Jenner's boyfriend Corey Gamble jumped in and said he'd "whip" Penelope if she scratched him. Penelope's father Scott Disick exploded, telling Corey to "get the f*** out of here."

DEMI MOORE REGRETS HAVING THREESOMES WITH ASHTON KUTCHER

Demi Moore's telling it all in her new memoir Inside Out. The actress revealed that he and ex husband Ashton Kutcher had threesomes during their marriage. She said that when Kutcher asked her to have a threesome, she agreed. She explained, "I wanted to show him how great and fun I could be." She said that the two times they decided to have a threesome proved to be a mistake.

Moore also revealed that in 2010, she saw media reports claiming that Kutcher met a 21-year-old woman while bowling with her daughter Rumer and cheated on her in their home while she was out of town filming a movie. When she confronted him, he bought up their threesomes as a defense. She explained, "Because we had brought a third party into our relationship, Ashton said, that blurred the lines and, to some extent, justified what he'd done."

She revealed that Ashton cheated twice in their marriage.

She also revealed that things started going wrong when she miscarried their baby at six months and several attempts at IVF failed. After the miscarriage, she started drinking again and blamed herself for the loss.

Ashton and Demi divorced in 2013.

Inside Out will be released on September 24th.

KIM KARDASHIAN REVEALS THE LAST TIME SHE SAW O.J. SIMPSON

Kim Kardashian has revealed that it got very emotional the last time she saw O.J. Simpson in public. During an interview on her friend Johnathan Cheban's new podcast FoodGod: OMFG, Kim said, "I think the last time I saw him was in Miami. It was before he had gone to jail last situation, and Khloé and, I think me Kourtney and Khloé were in Miami in a club, and we ran into him in the VIP section. But it was like behind a stage or something, I don't even know what club it was at. We all, I think, started crying. It was emotional, I think."

Kim's later father, Robert Kardashian Sr. was a friend of O.J.'s and served as one of his defense attorneys during his 1994 murder trial for the deaths of ex wife Nicole Brown and friend Ron Goldman.

Cheban also revealed that Kim has never talked to him about her dad's involvement in the trial. Kim responded, "Yeah, we never really talk about it. I never really talk about it." She added,"I just, you know, his kids are all so amazing and Nicole's kids, and I'm still somewhat friendly with his children. I don't really talk to them, but I did connect with his son a few years back, and I just have respect for them, and their lives must be extremely hard to really go through that. I always try to keep to myself on that issue and not really bring anything up for them."

BRAD PITT REVEALS WHY HE CONFRONTED HARVEY WEINSTEIN ABOUT ALLEGED GWYNETH PALTROW INCIDENT

Bratt Pitt opened up about how he reacted when Harvey Weinstein made a pass at ex-girlfriend Gwyneth Paltrow. Paltrow has claimed that Weinstein sexually harrased her in the early days of her career. In an interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour, he revealed that he confonted Weinstein. He explained, "At that moment, I was just a boy from the Ozarks on the playground and that's how we confronted things."

He continued, "I just wanted to make sure nothing was going to happen further because she was going to do two films. I think the interesting thing is that we, Hollywood specifically, but the workplace, men and women's dynamics is being re-calibrated, re-calibrated in a very good way that is long overdue. And I do think that's an important story to tell."

During an interview with Howard Stern, Paltrow revealed that Pitt told Weinstein, "‘If you ever make her feel uncomfortable again, I'll kill you.' Or something like that." She added, "It was so fantastic. He leveraged his fame and power to protect me at a time when I didn't have fame or power yet."

Megan Fox has opened up about her 6-year-old son Noah's decision to wear dresses. During an appearance on The Talk, the actress said that her son is "really into fashion" and wears whatever he wants to school, including dresses.

She explained, "Sometimes, he'll dress himself and he likes to wear dresses, sometimes. And I send him to a really liberal, hippy school, but even there — here in California — he still has little boys going, ‘Boys don't wear dresses,' or ‘Boys don't wear pink.'"

She continued, "So we're going through that now, where I'm trying to teach him to be confident no matter what anyone else says. He just wore one two days ago to school, and he came home and I was like, ‘How was it? Did any of the friends at school have anything to say?' And he was like, ‘Well, all the boys laughed when I came in, but I don't care, I love dresses too much.'"

WILL SMITH REVEALS WHAT NOT TO DO IN A MARRIAGE

Will Smith revealed how couples can "sustain lifelong partnerships" in a hilarious birthday video for wife Jada Pinkett-Smith. The video, which he posted on Instagram, show he and Jada on a plane about to land into Tanzania. Will Smith shared that he had made the mistake of not telling his wife something about the trip -- and Jada didn't seem amused at all.

He said, "I didn't tell Jada that the runway was going to be dirt." He continued, "I want to talk to y'all about sustaining lifelong partnerships. Stuff like, ‘It's not really a runway, it's dirt' — you don't say that. Your marriage doesn't need it. It just brings up conversations that are unnecessary when once you're down the truth is revealed. The truth comes out in the wash."

Throughout the video, Jada keeps a straight face.

Will captioned the video, "Happy Bday babe! Sorry I didn't tell you about the dirt runway in Tanzania…"

Simon: "I'll tell you why . . even though everybody remembers al the craziness, what worked about that series was is that Randy, like myself, is an A&R guy, but also a record producer. Paula actually was a brilliant spotter of talent. I was an A&R (artists and repertoire) guy, which is one of the reasons why I think we had this additional chemistry. Our legacy, genuinely, are the artists who we discovered over the seven-year period. That's what I'm most proud of."

He also gave props to Kelly, saying, "The fact that you're one of the most successful singers in the world. I have to say something about you, Kelly. Unlike the majority, you are the same person off-camera as you are on camera. You've always respected people and you've been very loyal and you're a great friend. I'm absolutely thrilled for you, genuinely. You've worked hard."

MEGAN FOX OPENS UP ABOUT SUFFERING A PSYCHOLOGICAL BREAKDOWN

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Megan Fox opened up about suffering a "psychological break down" back in 2009. The actress revealed that around the time Jennifer's Body was released, she found herself consistently being sexualized in films and media.

She explained, "It wasn't just that movie, it was every day of my life, all the time, with every project I worked on and every producer I worked with. It preceded a breaking point for me."

She continued, "I think I had a genuine psychological breakdown where I wanted just nothing to do/ I didn't want to be seen, I didn't want to have to take a photo, do a magazine, walk a carpet, I didn't want to be seen in public at all because of the fear, and the belief, and the absolute certainty that I was going to be mocked, or spat at, or someone was going to yell at me, or people would stone me or savage me for just being out. I went through a very dark moment after that."

Megan revealed that having her first child Noah turned things around for her. She explained, "I think it took getting pregnant — that was the first real breakthrough where my consciousness shifted and my mind opened up and I was able to see from a birds-eye view and breath and take it in. And then another kid, and then another kid and with every kid, I feel like that's always been the doorway into a better version of myself."

Megan and Brian Austin Green share three kids, Noah, Bodhi and Journey.

The actress came on as a producer at the start of season 2 in 1999.

She said, "I think that working so closely with fellow producer Michael Patrick King, you just learn the business of producing, which involves numbers and budgets and unions and interpersonal relationships and complicated people and easy people. You learn because it's exciting, there's a lot at stake and you're invested."
