Read today’s dose of chic intel right here…
Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum Split (People)
In Hollywood’s latest installment of didn’t-see-it-coming breakup news, Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum announced Monday that they are separating after nine years of marriage. Their joint statement was oddly cheerful, starting off with “Hey world!” and was even emoji-laden, writing exclusively to People:
So…We have something we would like to share.
First off, it feels odd that we have to share this kind of thing with everyone, but it’s a consequence of the lives we’ve chosen to lead, which we also happen to be deeply grateful for. We’re living in an incredible moment in time, but it’s also a time where truth can easily get distorted into “alternative facts” 😉 So we want to share the truth so you know that if you didn’t read it here then it’s most certainly fiction.
We have lovingly chosen to separate as a couple. We fell deeply in love so many years ago and have had a magical journey together. Absolutely nothing has changed about how much we love one another, but love is a beautiful adventure that is taking us on different paths for now. There are no secrets nor salacious events at the root of our decision — just two best-friends realizing it’s time to take some space and help each other live the most joyous, fulfilled lives as possible. We are still a family and will always be loving dedicated parents to Everly. We won’t be commenting beyond this, and we thank you all in advance for respecting our family’s privacy. Sending lots of love to everyone, Chan&Jenna.”
The magazine reports the couple has been living separately for over four months. Ugh, so sad.

Naomi Campbell Urges Vogue To Launch African Edition (Reuters)
Naomi Campbell said Sunday that Vogue should launch an African edition to recognize and foster the continent’s contribution to the global fashion conversation. “There should be a Vogue Africa,” she told Reuters while in Lagos for Arise Fashion Week runway. “Africa has never had the opportunity to be out there and their fabrics and their materials and their designs be accepted on the global platform…it shouldn’t be that way.” Condé Nast International, which publishes Vogue, could not immediately be reached for comment by Reuters.
Model and Lisa Rinna Progeny Amelia Gray Reveals Eating Disorder (Page Six)
Lisa Rinna’s 16-year-old daughter, who’s walked for Dolce & Gabbana, opened up on Instagram about overcoming an eating disorder. “I feel comfort with finally posting something I wish I was confident enough to post long ago,” the model started the post, later saying her modeling contributed to her illness. “I feel like sometimes people forget that just because your job involves being in front of the camera, doesn’t mean you can’t have bad days. We’re human. All of us. Instead of people ever commenting on my mental stability, people commented on my weight. Usually, when people are struggling with an eating disorder it stems from your mind, and your body is a reflection of it. I could go on and on about that time of my life, but the most important part about it was waking up one morning and deciding to stop sabotaging myself. My health, my physical health, my mental health and everything about myself. Once I got the help that I needed, shortly after the second photo was taken, I began to try to love myself for me.” Gray posted a sort of before-and-after pair of side-by-side pictures with the missive, both of herself in a bikini — one at her current healthy weight, one from the height of her illness.
I feel comfort with finally posting something that I wish I was confident enough to post long ago. I’m getting many comments comparing my body today vs. my body last year. I think that the support from my followers has really pushed me into writing this. Anyways, last year at this time there was no doubt that I was not okay. Not only physically but also mentally. I feel like sometimes people forget that just because your job involves being in front of the camera, doesn’t mean you can’t have bad days. We’re human. All of us. Instead of people ever commenting on my mental stability, people commented on my weight. Usually, when people are struggling with an eating disorder it stems from your mind, and your body is a reflection of it. I could go on and on about that time of my life, but the most important part about it was waking up one morning and deciding to stop sabotaging myself. My health, my physical health, my mental health and everything about myself. Once I got the help that I needed, shortly after the second photo was taken, I began to try to love myself for me. I am SO beyond humbled and grateful to have the platform that I do at such a young age, and to wake up every morning with a little girl reaching out to me and telling me I am her inspiration, really makes me feel like I have a purpose. I went through this journey not for attention, not for people to pitty me, but to help. I am on this earth to help people, and I know that. One in 200 women in the US suffer from anorexia. And I want to help. The first photo, taken today is not a photo of the perfect girl. That is a photo of me, trying to figure out my body, and owing my curves that I naturally have, and not forcing myself to starve them away. I have a lot of health complications after starving myself for so long so it’s going to be a journey that I go through for a large part of my life. I still have an extremely healthy life style and I workout so hard all week to maintain my Body. Not to say that recently being diagnosed with hashimotos has also been an extreme challenge for me to balance when still getting over this part of my life, but I am getting there. One day at a time. I want to help.
She also posted a subsequent Instagram thanking her 279,000 followers for their outpouring support following her disclosure.
