ELLEN POMPEO AND PATRICK DEMPSEY DON’T TALK: Although they worked together for 11 years, Ellen Pompeo recently told Jada Pinkett Smith on her Red Table Talk show that she and Patrick Dempsey haven’t spoken since he left Grey’s Anatomy in 2015.

"Typically, when people leave the show, they need to sort of find themselves, who they are without the show, because the show takes up so much of your life. You need that time to figure out who you are without the show, so, we have not spoken, but I will always have a place in my heart for Patrick."

"He was texting me in the morning before I went into surgery, and we were FaceTiming the entire time I was in the hospital. He’s seen me at my worst. He was there through all of that," she said. "I think that’s why I feel the most beautiful in his eyes, because he still finds me beautiful after seeing all that."

Pete Davidson wants the negativity to stop. Since the Saturday Night Live star returned to Instagram last week following his split from Ariana Grande, he has not encountered a warm reception.

Fans of Grande’s have poured into his comments section, accusing him of ending the engagement. In a heartbreaking new post, Davidson shares his past—and current—struggles with mental health, saying he hopes his openness will raise awareness in general about the huge impact cyberbullying can have on victims.

"I've kept my mouth shut. Never mentioned any names, never said a word about anyone or anything," the 25-year-old comedian writes. "I'm trying to understand how when something happens to a guy the whole entire world just trashes him without any facts or frame of reference. Especially in today's climate where everyone loves to be offended and upset it truly is mind-boggling."

"I've been getting online bullied and in public by people for nine months," he continues. "I've spoken about BPD and being suicidal publicly only in the hopes that it will help bring awareness and help kids like myself who don't want to be on this earth. I just want you guys to know. No matter how hard the internet or anyone tries to make me kill myself. I won't. I'm upset I even have to say this. To all those holding me down and seeing this for what it is -- I see you and I love you."

Sympathy poured in from fans, with one writing "please stay strong," and another saying, "You are amazing!"

To outsiders, it seems like soon-to-be newlyweds Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas just met. But to them, their love story has been in the works for ages.

The lovebirds sat down with Vogue for a cover story that, for the first time, provided eager fans with a glimpse into their relationship. Nick, 26, recalls kneeling in front of Priyanka, 36, the first time they met (at last year’s Vanity Fair's Oscar party).

"I put my drink down, got on one knee — this is in front of a bunch of people — and I say, ‘You’re real. Where have you been all my life?’ Like, loud," he tells the magazine.

And while they went home together, the night ended with them squarely in the friend zone. "We hung out for a couple of hours. He patted my back before he left," she says.

Nick adds: "She’s still upset about that. Your mom was in the house! I thought it was a respectful first night."

After some back-and-forth, he scored her number. Nick’s brother Joe (who is engaged to Sophie Turner), tells Vogue: "I think she kind of knocked him off his feet. He was just this little puppy dog."

Nick admits: "She walks into the Chateau, and I feel an overwhelming sense of peace and understanding about this next chapter of my life." After their third date he told his mother he would marry her.

Priyanka says she loved the way he loves her from the get go: "As a girl, I’ve never had a guy tell me, ‘I like your ambition.’ It’s always been the opposite."


Nick popped the question on vacation in Crete, where they were celebrating her birthday. "I got down on one knee, again, and I said, ‘Will you make me the happiest man in the world and marry me?’" he says. "No joke — she took about 45 seconds. Forty-five seconds of silence."

Separately, Us Weekly reports that while Priyanka and Meghan Markle remain close friends, Meghan and Prince Harry will not attend their wedding in India. The pregnant Meghan is staying close to home these days, and missed out on joining Harry’s recent trip to Zambia.

The 36-year-old royal took part in an interactive workshop created to underline the importance of physical and emotional health. During the conference, he addressed his own past as a pilot at the East Anglian Air Ambulance.

William worked with doctors and paramedics providing emergency services throughout England.

"I got very sad and very down about this particular family," he said.

William continued: "After I had my own children, I think the relation between the job and the personal life was what really took me over the edge, and I started feeling things that I have never felt before. Talking was really important, but even that wasn't quite enough for one particular incident for me."

William urged employers to care for the mental health of their workers: "There's still a stigma about mental health. We are chipping away at it but that wall needs to be smashed down."

Break-ups are awkard in the best of circumstances … now imagine there’s a $2 million diamond ring in the mix. That’s what’s happening in the Paris Hilton/Chris Zylka split, amid reports that she dumped him, but is hanging on to the mesmerizingly large (20 carats!) pear-shaped sparkler he proposed with.

According to TMZ, Hilton is hanging on the ring, but that Zylka plans a "hard ask I Paris doesn’t" cough up the goods soon. Hilton hasn’t been the most devoted of caretakers of the gem thus far, managing to lose it at a Miami rave in March, just four months after receiving it.

It was "just so heavy and big," it "literally flew" off her finger and into an ice bucket, she breathlessly explained on Twitter.

Hilton, who hasn’t publicly commented on her breakup, alluded to it in an Instagram post. She dressed up as Marilyn Monroe, and shared a favorite quote from the siren as her caption: I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go. Things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right. You believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself. And sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together."
