Celebrity of the Week

This weekend, Justin Timberlake hosted “Saturday Night Live” for the fifth time, an honor few other celebrities have attained since the show began 38 years ago. “Saturday Night Live” fans were in for quite a show as a few “SNL” alumni popped up throughout the night.  Timberlake opened up the show with a monologue about joining the most “exclusive” club in New York City—the “Five-Timers Club,”—a group of celebrities who have hosted the show at least five times. As Timberlake left the stage, he entered the club and the skit began.

First, Timberlake was greeted by Paul Simon, who introduces him to the other members of the club, including Steve Martin, Chevy Chase, Alec Baldwin, Tom Hanks and Candice Bergen. Throughout the skit, each member revealed benefits of being in the club, such as free food, drinks and entertainment provided by current and past “SNL” cast members.

Timberlake, was also the musical guest for the show, performed “Mirrors” and was joined by Jay-Z for their song “Suit & Tie.” Fans of the show seemed to love his performance and even commented that he should join the cast.

 

Romance

Kate Middleton’s sister, Pippa, was caught locking lips and taking pictures with boyfriend and London stockbroker Nico Jackson on a ski lift while vacationing in St. Moritz. According to British tabloids, the duo met a year ago while skiing in Switzerland. Perhaps the couple was celebrating a one-year anniversary. During their trip, they hit the slopes and even competed in a cross-country ski race.

Model Elle Macpherson and billionaire real estate developer Jeff Soffer are engaged again. Let us explain: The two were engaged last year but Macpherson called it all off because she still had feelings for her ex Arpad Busson. The on-and-off-again couple reportedly got back together after Soffer survived a helicopter crash and Macpherson decided to give the romance another try. Access Hollywood was the first to break the buzz worthy news that’s now flooding
the Internet.
