Usher and Tameka Foster's oldest son, Usher V, is on the mend after a horrifying pool accident earlier this week, and Foster couldn't be happier about his recovery, People reports.
Foster posted a pic of herself cradling her little boy in the hospital on Thursday.
"My favorite 5-year-old. What a blessing!" she wrote. "I have always loved and appreciated my sons but tragedies and close calls make this even more evident."
She also revealed earlier in the day that Cinco was "resting well" and that they'd "had a SpongeBob marathon ALLL night," because "he wouldn't go to sleep!"
Usher released a statement Wednesday night thanking "the two men who saved my son's life" after he got his arm stuck in a pool drain while trying to retrieve a toy in the pool at his father's Atlanta home on Monday.
"The Voice" judge has primary custody of his two children with Foster, but she reportedly filed a request for an emergency custody hearing on Tuesday.
"Now that it's sunk in, she is livid," a source close to Foster told People. "Usher has custody and won't let Tameka have the kids. She feels like the kids are being raised by his family or by nannies, when they should be with their mother."
Piers Morgan is getting some competition in the form of Fox newswoman Megyn Kelly, E! News reports.
Kelly, who's on maternity leave from work, has landed her own 9 p.m. Fox News time slot, according to the Drudge Report. Kelly's show would replace Sean Hannity's current 9 p.m. gig and would air in direct competition with Morgan's CNN show "Piers Morgan Live."
So what's Morgan think about his new time-slot rival? "Bring it on @megynkelly," the 48-year-old Brit tweeted Thursday with a link to the Drudge Report's story.
Sounds like Morgan isn't too worried!
Kelly gave birth to baby boy Thatcher Bray on July 23. Thatcher is Kelly and husband Doug Brunt's third child together.
Marriage is a beautiful thing, especially when you're married to Oprah Winfrey, People reports.
"It was an amazing experience for me," says Forest Whitaker, who plays Winfrey's onscreen husband in "Lee Daniels' The Butler," opening next Friday.
The movie, based on the real-life story of a man who worked at the White House for 34 years under eight consecutive presidents, juxtaposes the couple's home life against the turbulent times of the 1950s and '60s.
"[Oprah] was so committed to our relationship," said Whitaker as he was promoting the film in New York City on Monday.
"In between the scenes, when we're trying to develop our rapport and continue to build our connection, she would be so generous, she would rub my back, or, you know, we'd walk hand in hand to the set and talk, and I think it led to the magic of us being able to really be connected in the film.
This being Winfrey's first role in 15 years, she said she was drawn to the character of Gloria because she "had a little fire inside of herself." But that passion led to some heavy scenes for Whitaker, 52, who wasn't sure how to react to the 59-year-old's emoting.
He admits there were a couple of scenes "where I didn't know what to do by the way she was behaving."
For instance, "One time she was [acting] really drunk in the scene," he said, "and I just didn't know what to do."
"You know that awkward moment when you don't know how to take away someone's pain, you don't know if you should touch them, you don't know if you should help them, you don't know if you should be in the room? Those are the kind of moments that she did" -- which he credits for elevating their work together.
People are still reeling from Beyonce's incredible hair transformation, and it seems like everyone has something to say about the star's sassy new blond pixie cut, E! News reports.
Most notably, her trusted hair stylist Kim Kimble, who has worked her magic on the singer's tresses for years (except when she is on tour), said she was just as surprised as everyone else.
"I did not expect it, but I think it is a great shock," Kimble tells E! News. "It's amazing that she made a change. It shows a lot of confidence. It's powerful that you won't let one thing define you."
As for her music video shoot scheduled for this weekend, Kimble admits she'll definitely have to change gears to adapt to the sudden transformation.
"I've got to rethink," the beauty guru says. "I had a plan but now I am going to have to rethink it. Maybe think of the style I was going to do and give it a shorter twist. I am ready to roll with it!"
