  • KATE WINSLET, ONCE KNOWN AS 'BLUBBER,' RECALLS BEING FAT-SHAMED AS A KID

    It’s hard to believe the seven-time Academy Award nominee and all-around gorgeous woman Kate Winslet has been consistently bullied for being "fat" and was once even locked in a cupboard by her school-age tormentors, but it's true, the actress says.

    The Oscar-winner shared her personal story and extended words of empowerment to a room full of children at a charity event this week. Speaking in London, Winslet recalls the insults and degradation: "They called me ‘Blubber.’ Teased me for wanting to act. Locked me in the cupboard. Laughed at me."

    • Unfortunately, the ugly derision didn’t end in the schoolroom. Winslet remembers career advice suggesting she would be "lucky" to even get a shot at acting, and should be "happy to settle for the fat girl parts."
    • Even when she was established, the name-calling didn’t end. Winslet told Rolling Stone back in 1998 that Titanic director James Cameron used to call her "Kate Weighs-a-Lot."
    • But she "fought back," she says, and advises kids to do the same: "I had to choose to rise above it all, and I had to work hard. You have to be indestructible to do what you love, and believe that you are worth it. And sometimes that’s the hardest part."

  • JAY MOHR CLAIMS WIFE NIKKI COX IS BATTLING MENTAL HEALTH AND DRUG ISSUES

    The Ghost Whisperer’s Jay Mohr is claiming that his estranged wife Nikki Cox is battling untreated mental health issues and drug addiction, according to People Magazine.

    He is requesting sole physical and joint legal custody of their son Meredith, 5, according to court documents filed Friday, March 10th and obtained by People.

    • Mohr wants Cox to have "reasonable visitation with Meredith," but insists that the visits "be professionally monitored."
    • Mohr filed for divorce from Cox for the second time in December after 10 years of marriage. Initially, Mohr was requesting joint physical and legal custody, but alleges that since then, "Based upon the increasing hostility in our home, Nikki’s ongoing refusal to attend her mental health issues … her abuse of drugs, and her failure to respect boundaries, I had no choice but to obtain alternate housing for me and our son."
    • The documents go on to claim that Cox is "incapable" of caring for Meredith and alleges that she has left ovens on and doors open at night, and once administered a double dose of medication to Meredith, causing him to vomit.
    • The ongoing issues are causing major disruption and distress in Meredith’s life, Mohr claims: "Meredith is exhibiting signs of regression, both at home and in school (he is starting to have bathroom accidents throughout the day) … His behavior is deteriorating both at school and with his therapists."

  • WILLIAM SHATNER, NICK VIALL CALL A TRUCE

    William Shatner is not at all happy that Nick Viall is on Dancing with the Stars, and he wants the Bachelor star to get the boot. Shatner went on a Twitter tirade against Viall on Monday and Tuesday, urging viewers to vote off the reality star, saying, "My goal for #DWTS is to knock Bachelor Nick out ASAP. Who is with me?"

    The Star Trek actor, who said he’s watched the show "for years," doesn’t even seem to have a horse in the race, tweeting, "Whoever your favorite is - just not Nick- make the 10 phone calls for them." Shatner said that any fans who watched the Bachelorette season with Andi Dorfman would understand his dislike. Viall simply responded to Shatner with a sad emoji.

    Dancing with the Stars host Tom Bergeron asked for a truce on Wednesday, wishing Shatner a happy birthday and tweeting, "Any chance I can negotiate a truce between you & @viallnicholas28 ??" Later, Bergeron joked, "If I can bring peace to this reality show I’m moving on to @Schwarzenegger & @realDonaldTrump."

    Shatner finally made peace, sort of, with Viall, offering him a virtual rose. The peace offering was accepted, with Nick wishing Shatner a belated happy 86th birthday. "Saw Nick Viall dance," Shatner said 45 minutes after extending his peace offering. "He can really dance. I hope he’s as good a lover."
