After two years together, Miranda Lambert and Anderson East have split up, according to a new report. In Touch magazine claims East, 29, ended things, leaving Lambert, 34, “devastated.” “She didn’t see it coming,” the source said. The source told the mag that two just “grew apart” while they were on separate tours. Miranda has been writing songs and she’ll join The Bandwagon Tour with Little Big Town in July. She refuses to sit around feeling sorry for herself.”

 

It doesn’t matter how successful a performer is, they know deep in their hearts that some fan will probably stop loving them today. It’s something BRAD PAISLEY thinks about as he walks to the stage each night.  “Somewhere in the back of my mind, there’s always a little bit of, ‘Are they going to be tired of me tonight?’  That’s on my mind.” The bright side is that the people in the crowd DO still love him or they wouldn’t have bought a ticket.  It’s important to keep things fresh, so he combats audience fatigue is by changing things up.

 

No, JENNIFER ANISTON didn’t have a secret miscarriage . . . and JUSTIN THEROUX isn’t hooking up with ANGELINA JOLIE.

 

49 yr old Rachael Ray was at the 10-year celebration of her pet food brand Nutrish in New York City on Monday. She detailed the canine-friendly cake she made for Isaboo, her 13-year-old rescue Pitbull, earlier this month.  “ ( “I put in a cup of white rice, a little bit of breadcrumbs, I like to use the whole wheat toasted breadcrumbs, a touch of mint for their breath — it really does help. Then I add two egg yolks, four egg whites and then just bake it like a normal cake. It’s great because it’s high in protein and has good fats in there, it’s a balanced meal. I also like to add in a pinch of sea salt, no pepper of course.”) Rachael really wants to make a dog cookbook.  However, it’s not happening just yet. “I’ve asked millions of times. But none of the publishers want to do it, maybe you could put in a plea for me.”  After launching Nutrish in 2008, she has been donating a portion of each sale to The Rachael Ray Foundation, which focuses on helping animals through Rachael’s Rescue. Since then, she has donated more than $21 million to animal charities.

 

MIRANDA LAMBERT’s MuttNation Foundation gave surprise donations to some 50 animal shelters across the country. The grants ranged from $3,000 to $5,000.  She says she is amazed and humbled by the great work these shelters do, and os so honored to be able to support their critical efforts.

 

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding will be one of the biggest events of the year. More so when the Spice Girls are slated to perform at the ceremony.  Markle has been a big fan of the group and Harry met the group back in 1997 after attending one of their concerts with his dad, Prince Charles.

 

Dolly Parton presented her 100 millionth book from her Imagination Library book gifting program to the Library of Congress in Washington D.C. She also announced a partnership between her organization and the Library of Congress for a monthly storytime that will be streamed to libraries across the country.
