La La Anthony reveals she had emergency heart surgery
La La Anthony has revealed she underwent emergency heart surgery in June, two years after she was diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat. In a new interview with Self published on Nov. 12, the 39-year-old MTV alum explains that she was told in 2019 that she suffers from premature ventricular contractions (PVCs), a potentially dangerous heart rhythm issue. “I felt my heart racing all the time, but because it’s all I ever really knew, I didn’t even know that it was necessarily something wrong,” she recalls, adding that she got checked out after she “started feeling it even more — like this fluttering and this racing all the time.” She was given an EKG, which showed she was experiencing “about 25 percent more heartbeats over the course of the day” than it should be. Her doctors “were very, very concerned,” she continued. “Within a 24-hour period, they said, my heart was beating 30,000 extra beats more than the average person. It was going fast constantly.” After failing to take the medication she was prescribed regularly she suddenly became lightheaded and pale, but only went to the hospital after her son begged her to on June 1. She was soon in the operating room for a two-hour emergency surgery. “They would wake me up during the procedure and say, ‘We’re going to speed your heart up now. Just take deep breaths,'” she recalled. “Those doctors were just so incredible, but it was a terrifying experience.”

Taylor Swift’s fans skewer Jake Gyllenhaal on Twitter amid ‘Red’ re-release
They say the internet never forgets — and chances are, Jake Gyllenhaal agrees with that sentiment after his name trended on Twitter with the Nov. 11 release of Taylor Swift’s 10-minute long version of “All To Well.” Rerecorded and released as part of her “Red (Taylor’s Version)” launch, the song tells the story of a rough breakup, long rumored to be inspired by Taylor’s split from Jake circa 2010. The new version features all kinds of new details that point even more directly to Jake, not least of which are lines like, “You said if we had been closer in age maybe it would have been fine.” During their brief, three-month relationship, Taylor turned 21 and Jake was 29 — which also probably explains the lyric, “And I was never good at telling jokes but the punch line goes / I’ll get older but your lovers stay my age.” On Twitter, Taylor’s fans ate up all 10 minutes of the seeming Jake digs, posting memes galore and riffing on anecdotes from the song. “What if you were jake gyllenhaal and you wanted to go to heaven but god said nah remember when you missed taylor swift’s 21st birthday party,” cracked one user. Another, sharing a photo of someone snoozing on a cloud, wrote, “How Im sleeping tonight knowing I’m not Jake Gyllenhaal’s publicist.” On the “Tonight” show on Nov. 11, Taylor told Jimmy Fallon she initially recorded the 10-minute version for the 2012 “Red” release, but it was cut down from what she admitted was an “absurd length.”

Britney Spears dons #FreeBritney shirt before conservatorship hearing
“It’s a human rights movement.” So said the “#FreeBritney” t-shirts Britney Spears and her fiance, Sam Asghari wore in Instagram video Sam posted the night before Britney’s Nov. 12 conservatorship hearing, where she could finally get her freedom. The cute clip shows the singer, 39, dancing around while looking firmly into the camera as Sam occasionally drapes a protective arm around her. Leading up to the hearing, Britney’s lawyer filed a petition to dissolve the conservatorship she’s been under for 13 years. Even if the conservatorship is terminated, there will be more loose ends to tie up in the coming weeks. Jamie, who was nixed as estate conservator after Britney accused him “conservatorship abuse,” has also petitioned to end the conservatorship. But Britney’s lawyer has indicated plans to further investigate Jamie’s handling of the singer’s nearly $60 million estate. According to the New York Times, a separate hearing is scheduled for Dec. 8, where financial matters are expected to be ruled on. In addition to the matter of Jamie’s estate decisions, the judge is likely to hear a request from Britney’s mom, Lynne Spears, to have the singer cover more than $650,000 worth of legal fees Lynne claims to have racked up while trying to “help Britney.” “This week is gonna be very interesting for me,” Brit shared on Instagram on Nov. 8. “I haven’t prayed for something more in my life.” She later deleted the post.
Paris Hilton says ‘I do’ to Carter Reum in custom Oscar de la Renta
With no shortage of fanfare (or TV cameras), Paris Hilton married Carter Reum on Nov. 11 — a date chosen in honor of the bride’s favorite time of day. “It’s my reminder to make a wish and be open to miracles,” she tells Vogue. Paris, 40, walked down the aisle at the former estate of her late grandfather, Barron Hilton, in the Bel-Air section of Los Angeles, wearing a custom Oscar de la Renta gown with long, flower-embroidered sleeves. “I wanted something that was timeless, elegant, chic, and iconic, and I am so happy,” she gushed. At the reception, Paris and Carter, also 40, partied with famous friends including Demi Lovato, Kim Kardashian West and Paris’ sister, Nicky Hilton, who served as her maid of honor. It was Paris’ fourth engagement — and apparently, the only one that stuck! The three-day long celebration is all headed to the bride’s new reality show, “Paris in Love,” out now on Peacock.
