Ricki Lake Remembers Ex Husband Christian Evans After His Tragic Suicide

Ricki Lake Remembers Ex Husband Christian Evans After His Tragic Suicide

Ricki Lake is opening up about the death of her ex husband Christian Evans after he committed suicide in February. It was not public knowledge that Christian had committed suicide by a self-inflicted gunshot wound before this interview.

Christian struggled with bipolar disorder and she told People that she wants to help others who are struggling. “I have to spread the word about recognizing this disorder and getting treatment as soon as possible. Christian didn’t want to be labeled as bipolar, but he admitted he was in the note he left. That was him finally owning it. That was him giving me permission to tell his story.”

“We never fought, we never had an argument. He showed up for my kids,” Ricki said of her two sons, Milo, 19, and Owen, 15, from a previous relationship. “He was this quiet force that was just all about love and goodness and wanting to help people.”

“I didn’t know what the hell hit me, because I didn’t know what it looked like, so I didn’t see it coming,” Ricki said of his bipolar disorder. “For me, someone who has lived with him for four years and seen how hard it was for him to get out of bed and be excited for things, I saw him starting to be happy. It presented initially as him being motivated.” Ricki continued, “It was horrific. He just wasn’t the person I had been with for four years.”

“I am going to try my best to honor him by living a full and happy life,” she added. “I don’t know what’s in store for me, but I’m an optimist….I never stopped loving that man. I’m so lucky I got these beautiful years with him.”

Our continued thoughts are with Christian‘s loved ones.

Kaitlyn Bristowe Says 'Bachelorette' Creator Wouldn't Let Her Do 'DWTS' - Read Twitter Exchange

Former Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe, who appeared on Chris Soules‘ season of The Bachelor and then went on to choose Shawn Booth on her own season of the show, made a shocking reveal on Twitter this week.

A fan wanted to know why Bachelor‘s Chris and now, Nick Viall, were allowed on Dancing with the Stars, but she hadn’t been asked.

“Actually I was offered it, had the contract & Mike Fliess told me I wasn’t allowed.He said he didnt want people wanting fame after his show,” Kaitlyn wrote. Mike is the creator of The Bachelor and Bachelorette.

Kaitlyn received many responses including, “@kaitlynbristowe that’s just messed up!,” “@fleissmeister @kaitlynbristowe years later? Why you gotta be sexist?,” “exposing that ridiculous double standard!,” and more. Needless to say, Mike got dragged by her fans after Kaitlyn made this reveal.

Amanda Seyfried & Fiance Thomas Sadoski Honor 'Last Word' Co-Star Shirley MacLaine!

Amanda Seyfried & Fiance Thomas Sadoski Honor 'Last Word' Co-Star Shirley MacLaine!

Amanda Seyfried and her fiance Thomas Sadoski teamed up to honor their The Last Word co-star Shirley MacLaine!

The 31-year-old pregnant actress and the 40-year-old actor hit the stage at ArcLight Sherman Oaks to present Shirley with the The KCET Cinema Series Lumiere Award at a special ceremony held on Tuesday (February 28) in Sherman Oaks, Calif.

“I am incredibly honored to be the recipient of the KCET Cinema Series Lumière Award,” Shirley said in a statement. “THE LAST WORD is written mostly from the point of view of a woman born in the 1930s, when women were not considered a force in business. If she wanted to be successful, she had to throw her weight around. That’s what this character does, but she’s funny at the same time. She knows that she has irritated a lot of people during her lifetime, but she wants to be remembered well. It’s also about two women who reveal things that they never would have even dared to look at before. And it’s because of their prodding of one another they are able to do that. Each learns how to know herself.”

Kristen Stewart Discusses How She Deals with the Demands of Hollywood

Kristen Stewart Discusses How She Deals with the Demands of Hollywood

Kristen Stewart takes the cover of V106 in a full Chanel look.

Here’s what the 26-year-old actress had to share:

On the impact of social media and technology on our daily lives: “But you also become addicted to that hit by yourself and with yourself, every seven minutes or so, and you end up wasting so much time just validating something very superficial in yourself. It has definitely changed us.”

On the demands of Hollywood and how she deals with them: “I know that it seems like just a couple weeks at a time or whatever, but between Cannes and the New York Film Festival, it seems like I need to force myself to be like, ‘OK no, stop being external. Enough of the output.’ Sometimes, you need to—this sounds so cliché—meditate on replenishing the well.”

On not promoting the “intimate” film she wanted to promote: “I was in front of 500 cameras promoting my films, but not the one. Not the intimate one. Not the one that I really care about.”

On her relationship to fashion and Karl Lagerfeld: “Karl has always, from the very beginning, made me feel like being myself was the right thing to do. And in [the fashion] world, that is a rarity. He’s a compulsive and obsessive artist and it’s contagious. And he’s kind. He is who he is for a reason. I feel so lucky to be in his space so often.”

Ellie Goulding Is Still Very Much 'Friends' With Ex Dougie Poynter!

Ellie Goulding and Dougie Poynter may have split over a year ago, but they’re still very much friends.

The 30-year-old entertainer was asked if she has rekindled her romance with Dougie, 29, while attending the launch of her Ellie Goulding for Deichmann shoe collection on Tuesday night (February 28) at the MC Motors Venue in London, England.

“There’s absolutely no… it’s like we’ve always been friends. He’s one of my really good friends,” Ellie revealed. “For me, when I’ve been in relationships with people, those are the people I will always hold dear to me. So if still maintaining a really awesome friendship with an ex is possible, then of course that’s the best thing because you’ve shared so much with that person… I think it’s important to share this life with people you have a genuine bond with and you’ve shared a lot with.”

Last month, Ellie and Dougie attended the Dame Vivienne Westwood and James Jagger’s Mad Max Party together held in aid of climate change during London Fashion Week.

Khloe Kardashian's Ex James Harden Reveals His Version of Why They Broke Up

Khloe Kardashian's Ex James Harden Reveals His Version of Why They Broke Up

James Harden spoke about his eight month relationship with Khloe Kardashian in a new interview.

“I didn’t like all the attention,” the 27-year-old NBA star told Sports Illustrated. “I feel like it was for no reason. I wasn’t getting anything out of it except my name out there and my face out there, and I don’t need that. It wasn’t uncomfortable, but it wasn’t me. I don’t need pictures of myself when I’m driving my car. Who cares? What shoes am I wearing? Who cares? Where am I eating? Who cares? It was unnecessary stuff that I think trickled down to my teammates. I had to eliminate that.”

James and Khloe were first linked in July of 2015. Their split was first reported in February of 2016. Khloe is now dating Cleveland Cavaliers star Tristan Thompson.
