Hello and welcome to Gossip Time, a weekly guide to the stars by Allie Jones. This week: a model forsakes a comedian for a DJ, an actress has a cool party, and Brooke Shields reveals the perfect gift.
I have bad news. Pete Davidson and Emily Ratajkowski, the real couple we are all obsessed with, might be over. This is despite the fact that People reported this week that Davidson, 28, and EmRata, 31, were “getting a little more serious.” Unfortunately, it seems that Ratajkowski is seriously dating other people.
The model and author was spotted getting on the back of a motorcycle belonging to DJ Orazio Rispo the other day. Uh oh. You may recall that Rispo was the guy she was photographed making out with in October. Could it be that she has been dating him this whole time and only went to a Knicks game with Davidson for attention?
No, of course not. But according to Hollywood Life, the possibility is bumming Davidson out. “Pete understands that Emily just got out of a marriage and he doesn’t want to smother her,” a source told the gossip site, referring to Ratajkowski’s divorce from Sebastian Bear-McClard. “Pete is slightly bummed when he sees her on a date with another guy because he does like her a lot. But he is not putting all of his eggs in one basket either.”
Oh good. So who else is Davidson dating, then? Well, TMZ was really hoping they had a scoop when they published photos of Davidson sitting next to his Bodies Bodies Bodies co-star Chase Sui Wonders at a Rangers game yesterday. Unfortunately, if you zoom out, you can see he was also sitting next to his other Bodies Bodies Bodies co-star Rachel Sennott.
It does not look to me like any of these people are on a date. Sennott and Wonders both posted photos from the game that did not include Davidson. Also, it seems like Wonders has been dating Riverdale star Charles Melton for most of the year.
This is heartbreaking :(
Maybe Davidson can date Jennifer Aniston? She’s single and doing fine. So fine, in fact, that she recently hosted a Christmas party to which you were not invited. According to Page Six, Aniston, 53, invited several celebrities to her Bel-Air mansion on Saturday night — the same place she fake-married Justin Theroux once upon a time — and no one posted about it on social media. Wow.
“We’re told it was a no-cellphone party — but not because there was a rule in place,” the gossip outlet reports. “Guests simply ‘didn’t pull them out.’”
At least one of the guests simply ran to Page Six to tell all about it, however, because we have a full guest list: Sandra Bullock, Gwyneth Paltrow, David Spade, Bradley Cooper, Jason Bateman, Tobey Maguire, Ted Sarandos, Barry Diller, Courtney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Reese Witherspoon, Mark Duplass, Jon Hamm, and Jon Hamm’s girlfriend Anna Osceola. Sounds like a fun crew.
The Page Six source said the “joke of the night” was that it was an “old guard of Hollywood” party with “non-thirsty” celebrities. Ha ha! Yes, these people do not care about status whatsoever.
Speaking of strivers, the second installment of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Netflix reality show dropped yesterday. Unfortunately, like the first installment, there was not much gossip in it. “H” and “M” mostly talked about their own bravery and the time Beyoncé texted Meg that she was rooting for her.
There is one item from last week’s episodes that is really making me laugh, however. Remember when Meg said that she shocked Kate Middleton by going in for a hug when they first met? Well, sources close to Kate are now claiming to People that this is nonsense, because the Princess of Wales actually loves to hug.
“Kate’s a big hugger,” a “friend” told the tabloid. “She is warm and friendly and greets everyone with a big hug and kiss. It comes naturally to her to be like that.”
Here are the photos People chose to illustrate Kate’s warm hugs:
Point to Meg here, I think.
STUFF BY HILARY DUFF: Hilary Duff is loving your White Lotus memes.
Finally, I’ll leave you with this real Page Six headline regarding Brooke Shields’s holiday shopping:
As far as I can tell, Shields is not a paid spokesperson for PottyMints™, just a fan.

i did a pass on prince harry’s book and am verrry curious about how the tea he spills is received right after the netflix doc. i would say more but fear being sniped. in other news, i think jennifer aniston’s curly/wavy hair is pretty.
I can't stop thinking about the guest list for Aniston's party... Mark Duplass but not Katie Aselton? Some TV executives and David Spade? This sounds like something you'd show up to and silently go "oh fuck how long do I have to stay before I can run out of here"
