“Kris is still seeing Corey. Sometimes they seem fine and sometimes not great,” a source tells People about the KarJenner family matriarch and Gamble’s relationship.
Though Jenner, 61, and Gamble, 36, have been dating since November 2014, the source says that the couple’s “relationship is more business than romantic.”
“Kris is basically his sugar mama,” says the source.
“They will never get married,” the source adds.

At YouTube’s annual Brandcast back in May, the company announced a number of celebrity-fueled shows that would live outside of the video platform’s paywall. Now, YouTube’s chief of original content, Susanne Daniels, has confirmed that this is part of an attempt to go after TV ad dollars.
"There's one bucket of money and the digital platforms, yes, are competing for TV ad dollars that were previously exclusively TV ad dollars,” Daniels said at the Cannes Lions Advertising Festival on June 23.
And it seems to be working, so far. Johnson & Johnson, who had previously removed their ads from YouTube due to brand safety concerns, recently bought an exclusive sponsorship to the Ryan Seacrest produced Best.Cover.Ever. Katy Perry’s Big Brother-like livestream accrued about 49 million views over four days earlier this month. YouTube-funded, ad-supported programming from other major celebrities, like Kevin Hart, Ellen DeGeneres, and Demi Lovato will aim for similar success, »

A formidable actress, Laura Dern has been working in Hollywood since age 5. At 13 years old, the daughter of icons Diane Ladd and Bruce Dern became the youngest Miss Golden Globe and soon thereafter earned critical acclaim with her breakout role in Blue Velvet. The 1986 film also marked the first time Dern and director David Lynch would work together throughout her career, a pairing that continues with Twin Peaks’ celebrated return on Showtime.

Speed is one of the great ’90s action movies, a clean post-Die Hard action flick that elevated a preposterous (but compelling) premise with Keanu Reeves’ physical showmanship and Sandra Bullock’s considerable charisma. But that almost wasn’t the case. Stephen Baldwin actually turned down the role before it went to Reeves, and Bullock’s part was almost occupied by Ellen DeGeneres. Thank god they didn’t, though. As a new video from Art Of The Scene details, the likability of Reeves and Bullock helped sell viewers on the film’s gonzo centerpiece scene, in which a bus leaps over a missing chunk of interstate.
The video goes into great detail on how director Jan De Bont pulled the scene off, filming it from five different angles to stretch a .49-second jump into 11 seconds of screen-time. That might make the actual stunt seem somewhat puny, but seeing the »

Getting to be in the audience for Ellen DeGeneres's show is definitely a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity worth commemorating with a souvenir, but as one audience member learned, you probably shouldn't steal said souvenir. Before a recent taping, Ellen set up a swag table and told guests they could take one item. Repeat: One item. Most of the audience members followed that direction - except Nancy. Nancy didn't realize there were hidden cameras filming the group, and she decided to make multiple trips to the swag table to grab a few items. Watch the hilarious, cringe-worthy video to see how the audience reacts when Ellen calls her out. »

Zyrus, 25, debuted the new moniker on Twitter and Instagram Sunday — almost three years after revealing to Oprah Winfrey that “my soul is male.”
Since rising to international stardom in late 2007, the Tagaytay native became the first Asian solo singer in history to land in the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 albums chart with the release of 2010’s Charice, which debuted at No. 8.
Since the episode of Winfrey’s Where Are They Now? aired in October 2014, Zyrus has kept a low-profile — until now. »

Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, and Ava DuVernay are all collaborating on one of 2018’s most highly anticipated films, “A Wrinkle in Time.” Winfrey and Witherspoon star in the DuVernay-directed adaptation of the beloved sci-fi novel, set to bow early next year. The trio of A-listers have something else in common: they’re among the 24 women to make the cut for The Hollywood Reporter’s Most Powerful People in Entertainment List.
The number of women in this year’s THR 100 marks an improvement from last year’s, when 19 women appeared on the list. Women — such as TV titan Shonda Rhimes, “Wonder Woman” director Patty Jenkins, and producer/ host Ellen DeGeneres — earned spots on the list for acting, producing, directing, and fronting studios. Here are some highlights from the feature:
Witherspoon in “Home Again”
The best advice Witherspoon has received about power: “I had the privilege of working with Oprah Winfrey on a movie for three months this year, and she taught me so much about business. She does not waste a minute of her time, and she does it all with grace and style and humor. She is hustle personified.”
What Witherspoon has learned about her job from her kids: “My kids help me understand emerging platforms and the opportunity there to reach a broader audience. It inspired me to expand my production company into digital and mobile content for women and create a dialogue on social media with my fans.”
The best advice Jenkins has received about power: “I learned to watch the simplicity of shifting power dynamics from [producer] Brad Wyman, who used to break it down for me daily while we were making ‘Monster.’ He has one of the cleanest grasps on power of anyone I’ve ever met because it is totally unfettered by emotion or his own agenda. He’s a pessimist but could always be talked into pointing out the only available avenues for optimism when pushed. I learned a lot from him about the dry simplicity of strategy and patience.”
The object on Jenkins’ desk people would be surprised to see there: “An Avid. I don’t edit my films myself, but I need access to all takes, music, and ways of doing things at all times. It’s the writer in me who wants access to fiddle and learn.”
How Trump has changed Jenkins’ job and life: “I think he has made the messages and discussions I want to have more in-focus and pertinent than ever.”
Who DuVernay would switch jobs with in Hollywood for a day: “[Netflix’s] Ted Sarandos. I’d like to know how it feels to be the industry’s biggest disruptor and have those deep pockets too. I’d make it a shopping day.”
How Trump has changed DuVernay’s job and life: “He’s devastated me in many ways, but each of those ways has made me more determined than before.”
Diane Nelson: Wall Street Journal/YouTube
Who Diane Nelson, President of DC Entertainment, would switch jobs with in Hollywood for a day: “Patty Jenkins. To feel demand for your talent, regardless of gender, and knowing you are creating films that are going to leave lifetime imprints.”
The best advice Nancy Dubuc, President/CEO of A+E Networks, has received about power: “I can’t say there’s been any specific advice that I could quote. But, so many people that I admire, especially those women who have climbed the ranks, from superagents to gifted storytellers and mentors — all taught me by example to respect your use of power and never assume it’s a given, certainly as a woman.”

Fans don't have to worry about ABC cancelling The Bachelorette any time too soon. The summer dating reality series was already renewed for a 14th season, back in mid-May.

Will The Bachelorette's (overly tardy) step towards diversity draw an even larger audience in the 13th cycle? Stay tuned. The 13th installment of The Bachelorette follows Texas attorney Rachel Lindsay -- an alumna of the Nick Viall season of The Bachelor -- on her quest for true love. Lindsay and host Chris Harrison will welcome celebrity guests Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis, Ellen DeGeneres, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, and new country music star Russell Dickerson to the ABC TV show.

Fox on Monday released the first “wave” of nominees for the 2017 Teen Choice Awards, a bittersweet collection full of dearly departed (and soon-to-be-departing) shows.
The Vampire Diaries, which wrapped its eight-season run earlier this year, is well-represented, as is Pretty Little Liars, which bids farewell later this month. (Pll actually snagged the top spot with seven total nominations.)
The reality star was a guest on The View last week, where she addressed the tension in the Kardashian-Jenner family in recent months over Caitlyn's memoir, The Secrets of My Life, which features critical claims about her ex-wife, Kris Jenner.
"I definitely got upset about it," Kim, 36, told the panel in a teaser clip of the sit-down, set to air Tuesday. "In our family, we are always so close and stick through everything, so everything is definitely going to be fine."
"Maybe their stories are different, maybe their accounts are different," she added. "But when all of us were there witnessing some things, and seeing things really different, it was just a little surprising."
During the discussion, Kim also admitted that it's been months since the two »

The latest, “Cars 3,” races into theaters this weekend. The production company has even more sequels lined up in the future, including another “Cars” installment, a highly anticipated “The Incredibles 2,” and “Toy Story 4.”
Pixar first jumped on the sequel bandwagon in 1999 with “Toy Story 2,” a follow-up to its first movie ever. A third “Toy Story” film came out more than a decade later, when many of the first movie’s fans were off to college.
Film Review: ‘Cars 3’
