Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian Step Out for First Time as Newlyweds

Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian’s wedding may be officially over, but the newlyweds still have that glow. After officially tying the knot yesterday in a lavish Beauty and the Beast-themed wedding in New Orleans, Louisiana, the couple stepped out in public for the first time looking very happy and very in love.

Williams and Ohanian greeted throngs of fans in the Ace Hotel, where they enjoyed an after-wedding brunch. Still not ready to let go of her wedding white, Williams looked flawless in a crop top and high-waisted skirt that clung to her curves. Giving her feet a rest from a night filled with dancing, she wore a pair of Chanel slip-on espadrilles. 

Ryan Seacrest Disputes ‘Reckless’ Misconduct Allegations Brought on by His Former Stylist

Ryan Seacrest Disputes ‘Reckless’ Misconduct Allegations Brought on by His Former Stylist

Ryan Seacrest is speaking out regarding recent allegations made against him by a former coworker.

In a statement obtained by ET, the 42-year-old talk show host denies the “reckless allegations” that he behaved inappropriately towards an ex-stylist.

“Recently, someone that worked as a wardrobe stylist for me nearly a decade ago at E! News, came forward with a complaint suggesting I behaved inappropriately toward her. If I made her feel anything but respected, I am truly sorry,” Seacrest says in the statement. “I dispute these reckless allegations and I plan to cooperate with any corporate inquiries that may result. I treat all my colleagues with kindness, dignity, and understanding, as this is a principle that’s core to who I am.”

“Throughout my 25 years in the entertainment industry, the majority of my co-workers have been women, and I’ve endeavored to foster a positive work environment of mutual respect and courtesy, as that’s how I believe it should be,” he continued. “I’m distraught that anyone or any situation would call that into question. I’m proud of my workplace reputation, and believe my track record will speak for itself. I’m an advocate for women. I will continue to support their voices.”

As of now there are no additional comments regarding the specifics of the allegations. According to The Hollywood Reporter, who first reported the news, the alleged victim made a substantial financial ask in exchange for her silence. 

ET has learned that the report, and that Seacrest and his lawyers declined the request, are accurate. Meanwhile, an E! spokesperson confirmed to People that the company has started an investigation on the matter. 

Seacrest is among the many men in Hollywood who have been accused of sexual misconduct, including Jeffrey Tambor, Kevin Spacey and Brett Ratner. 

During a recent appearance on The Late Show, Ben Affleck was also on the hot seat about sexual misconduct claims made against him by Hilarie Burton. Hear what he had to say in the video below.

Why ‘This Is Us’ Star Jon Huertas Is Making It His Personal Mission to End Homelessness (Exclusive)

Why ‘This Is Us’ Star Jon Huertas Is Making It His Personal Mission to End Homelessness (Exclusive)

This Is Us star Jon Huertas is making it his mission to end homelessness.

The actor, who plays Miguel on NBC’s hit sophomore drama, has been a passionate supporter of the cause, due in part to his own personal experience. Though Huertas has been a successful working actor for the past two decades, he pointed to a trying time in his past when he found himself living without a roof over his head.

“I, at one point, for about two weeks, was in my truck with two dogs and all my stuff in the back of my pickup truck covered in a tarp. I didn’t have a roof and I didn’t know how soon I was going to get one and all it took was me reaching out to people I know who care to get me into a different situation. That’s kind of what we have to do as a society, as a community to reach out,” Huertas tells ET. “You can’t look at someone and go, ‘That person’s homeless.’ You don’t know who is and who isn’t. Some people dress like they don’t care and their clothes are tattered; they might live in an apartment somewhere. There are people who dress very nice, but they may live in their car or even crashing on someone’s couch.”

Huertas has been working closely with United Way, an organization that fights for the health, education and financial stability of every member in every community, for the past several years. This year, he is co-hosting their annual 5K walk/run HomeWalk, alongside pal and former Castle co-star Seamus Dever, which will take place this weekend in Downtown Los Angeles, with the goal of raising $1.5 million.

“Every person on the planet should feel like they belong to a community,” Huertas says. “When I see people on the street that don’t have a home, it worries me that they don’t feel like they are part of society and I know that they create their own micro-community sometimes on the streets but sometimes that can breed violence, transmitted viruses because once they get complacent they can start to ignore their own health, whether it be physical or mental.”

“We, as neighbors, can reach out to let them know that we think about them, that we can help them if they want it,” he continues. “Every day I wake up, I feel like I want to do something for somebody that day, whether it be make them smile, pick something up from the store for them. My duty is to do that with homeless neighbors — at least give them a smile, at least give them hope that they may one day change their circumstances.”

As a resident of Venice Beach, California, Huertas says he has first-hand interactions with many of his homeless neighbors and have “gotten to know them and have gotten to know their stories.” According to Huertas, since the first HomeWalk began in 2006, United Way has helped house more than 18,000 people.

“If more people would, instead of walking on the other side of the street when they see the homeless or instead of ignoring that they’re there, would at least say ‘good morning’ or ‘good afternoon’ or say ‘hi’ or ‘how are you doing today,’ the homeless neighbors would understand that they can reach out to maybe change their situation,” he says. “There are places they can go. There are options. But it takes both sides talking to each other to do that.”

Jon Huertas will co-host United Way’s 11th annual 5K walk/run, HomeWalk, with former Castle co-star Seamus Dever on Saturday, Nov. 18 in Downtown L.A.’s Grand Park.

Gabby Douglas Apologizes After Simone Biles Reacts to Her Telling Aly Raisman Women Should ‘Dress Modestly’

Gabby Douglas Apologizes After Simone Biles Reacts to Her Telling Aly Raisman Women Should ‘Dress Modestly’

Gabby Douglas is taking back her controversial comments she made on social media on Friday.

The 21-year-old gymnast issued an apology after Simone Biles called her out for telling their former USA Olympic Gymnastics competitor Aly Raisman that it’s a woman’s “responsibility” to “dress modestly” after Raisman spoke out about women being victim-shamed.  

“Just because a woman does a sexy photoshoot or wears a sexy outfit does not give a man the right to shame her or not believe her when she comes forward about sexual abuse,” Raisman wrote in her post. “What is wrong with some of you? AND when a woman dresses sexy it does not give a man the right to sexually abuse her EVER.”

Douglas replied to Raisman, saying in a now-deleted tweet, “However it is our responsibility as women to dress modestly and be classy. Dressing in a provocative/sexual way entices the wrong crowd.”

After seeing Douglas’ tweet, Biles tweeted a screenshot of Douglas’ response and defended Raisman. 

“Shocks me that I’m seeing this but it doesn’t surprise me… honestly seeing this brings me to tears bc as your teammate I expected more from you &  to support her,” Biles wrote. “I support you Aly 💕 & all the other women out there! STAY STRONG.”

Following the backlash, Douglas apologized for her remarks, tweeting Friday night, “I didn’t correctly word my reply & I am deeply sorry for coming off like I don’t stand alongside my teammates. Regardless of what you wear, abuse under any circumstance is never acceptable. I am WITH you. #metoo.”

Raisman has previously opened up about her experience with sexual harassment and women’s issues. 

Hear what she had to say in the video below.
