ABC/Fred Lee(NEW YORK) -- Monday night in New York City, Meryl Streep was joined on the red carpet by her daughter and co-starMamie Gummer for the premiere of Ricki and the Flash.

Ricki and the Flash does not represent the first time Streep has worked with Mamie. She explained on the red carpet, "I've been working with my daughter for 32 years and finally I had someone who directed her that she listened to."

Naturally, Streep gave her daughter's performance in the film a glowing review, saying she was "blown away," though she quickly added, "I'm not objective."

In Ricki and the Flash, Streep plays the titular character, who abandoned her family to pursue her rock star dreams. It opens Friday.

Gregory Zabilski(LOS ANGELES) -- The cast and crew behind the groundbreaking Amazon show Transparent took part Monday in the Television Critics Association summer press tour in Beverly Hills, discussing season two and how everything has changed for them.

A year ago, they'd taken the stage at the press tour, and it seemed almost no one was talking about transgender issues. Now, Transparent creator Jill Solloway has whiplash: "It's kind of mind-blowing about how our culture has sort of caught up to Trans 101."

And her show has caught up, too. She chatted about the major change for season two, saying a trans writer was hired.

Solloway says there aren't enough trans people telling their own stories.

As for Caitlyn Jenner, star Jeffrey Tambor, who plays a late-in-life transgender woman in Transparent, fielded that one, commenting, "We have met Caitlyn on a personal level and we love Cait."

Transparent season two is out in December.

Patrick Ecclesine/FOX (LOS ANGELES) -- Zooey Deschanel is a new mom...and a new wife.

A rep for the New Girl star says Deschanel and her now-husband, Jacob Pechenik, have welcomed a child.

"I am thrilled to confirm that Zooey Deschanel and her husband Jacob Pechenik are new parents to a beautiful healthy baby girl," the rep said in a statement obtained by ABC News.

Additional details regarding the baby or the secret marriage have not been released.

In January, Deschanel, 35, told People magazine she was expecting, saying, “Jacob and I are over the moon. We are so excited to meet our little one.”

Later that month, it was revealed that the couple was engaged.

In a March appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Deschanel said she and Pechenik wanted to be surprised by the baby's gender.

Deschanel was previously married to Death Cab for Cutie rocker Ben Gibbard. Their divorce was finalized in 2012.

BET(LOS ANGELES) -- Will Smith took to Facebook Monday to dispel rumors that he and his wife of almost 20 years, Jada Pinkett Smith, were divorcing.

"Under normal circumstances, I don't usually respond to foolishness. (Because it's contagious)," he wrote. "But, so many people have extended me their 'deepest condolences' that I figured - 'What the hell... I can be foolish, too!'"

He continued, "So, in the interest of redundant, repetitious, over & over-again-ness... Jada and I are... NOT GETTING A DIVORCE!!!!!!!!!!!!! : -)"

The post concluded, "I promise you all - if I ever decide to divorce my Queen - I SWEAR I'll tell you myself!"

Jada tweeted her support of her husband: "My king has spoken."

The couple married in 1997 and has been plagued by rumors in the past.

In 2012, Pinkett Smith spoke to French magazine Gala and said, "Every year, one celebrity couple is under the microscope. This year, unluckily, it's us! I almost want to say that we should have been expecting it."

She added about rumors they were living apart, "That's ridiculous. We've always lived together."

Lifetime(NEW YORK) -- Bobbi Kristina Brown was laid to rest in Fairview Cemetery in Westfield, New Jersey, on Monday afternoon, the Associated Press reported.

The 22-year-old was buried next to her mother, Whitney Houston.

According to the AP, the casket arrived at Newark Liberty International Airport earlier Monday morning and was transferred to Whigham Funeral Home, the same place that handled services for Houston in 2012. Brown's maternal grandmother, Cissy Houston, and Dionne Warwick were among those photographed at the funeral home earlier Monday.

The burial comes two days after Brown was memorialized at a funeral in Alpharetta, Georgia.

Brown died on July 26, almost five months after she was found unresponsive in a bathtub inside her Roswell, Georgia, home. Her father, singer Bobby Brown, called her death "unimaginable."

“Krissy was and is an angel. I am completely numb at this time," he told ABC News the day after her death. "My family must find a way to live with her in spirit and honor her memory. Our loss is unimaginable. We thank everyone for the prayers for Krissy and our family as we mourn my baby girl."

Authorities are investigating the circumstances surrounding Brown's death, according to a representative for the Fulton County district attorney's office. The Fulton County medical examiner said that an initial portion of the autopsy did not show an obvious underlying cause of death, and additional laboratory tests are being conducted.

Trae Patton/NBC(NEW YORK) -- Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale are ending their 13-year marriage, a rep for the couple told ABC News.

"While the two of us have come to the mutual decision that we will no longer be partners in marriage, we remain partners in parenthood and are committed to jointly raising our three sons in a happy and healthy environment. To that end, we respectfully request privacy from the media during this time," the statement from the musicians read.

Stefani, 45, and Rossdale, 49, wed in 2002. They have three sons together: Kingston, 9, Zuma, 6, and Apollo, 1.

Earlier this year, the No Doubt frontwoman opened up about her marriage to the Bush singer to Cosmopolitan magazine.

"We go through so much together — it's a miracle that we could stay together this long," she said. "It's good to have those days when we both do our own things. I think that's what keeps relationships going, when both people can be themselves and have their own individuality. That's especially important for women. It's hard to find time for yourself."

Fox(NEW YORK) -- Michael B. Jordan is one of the stars of the latest adaption of Fantastic Four. The Fruitvale Station actor warned moviegoers to expect a more realistic onscreen approach to the classic Marvel tale.

"This is like an origin story, you know?" he said on Monday's Live with Kelly and Michael. "The other films were cool and it was great. But we didn't immediately just throw on suits and try to save the world. It was like what would really happen to these kids if they got into an accident and got these abilities. Like, what would really happen?"

Jordan portrays Johnny Storm, who gets the unique ability to transform into a human torch. In order to play the role, the actor had to film in a one-piece. "I tried not to drink any fluids before I get into the suit because you know it's gonna be a while [before I get to use the restroom]," he explained.

Fantastic Four, also starring Kata Mara, Miles Teller and Jamie Bell, is in theaters Friday.

Charles Sykes/Bravo(NEW YORK) -- Married with Children star Christina Applegate dated many Hollywood actors before she wed her second husband, Martyn LeNoble, in 2013.

On Sunday night's Watch What Happens Live, the actress spoke about her botched date with Brad Pitt, when the two attended the MTV Movie Awards in 1989. Reportedly, Applegate ditched Pitt during the date for another guy.

When host Andy Cohen asked who the lucky guy was, Applegate was tight-lipped. "[Do] I have to say it? I don't have to do nothing. I don't have to do nothing...," she quipped.

Still, Applegate did reveal that although the person she ditched Pitt for was a well-known person, he wasn't an actor. 

Asked if she ever dated Pitt again, Applegate said, "No."

Pitt is now married to another Hollywood actress, Angelina Jolie.

Christopher Polk/Getty Images for dcpIt's the second major split for a country star in a month.  Reba McEntire is ending her marriage to Narvel Blackstock, her manager and husband of 26 years.

In a joint statement, the couple announce that they have been separated for the past few months, after 26 years of marriage, adding, "Despite this being the end of their marriage, they continue to support each other.

Peter Kramer/NBC(LOS ANGELES) -- These days, you're more likely to catch Drew Barrymore promoting her beauty and accessories business, Flower, than appearing in a role on the big screen.

"Flower has changed my life because it lets me be a mom the way I want to be and I still get to do something meaningful and think about girls and women and empowering messages," Barrymore told E! News while promoting Flower's new eye wear line, sold exclusively at Walmart.

"I love movies but the hours right now for where my kids are in their life, it's few and far between that I'll work," she said.

Barrymore and husband, Will Kopelman, are parents to daughters, Olive, 2, and Frankie, 15 months.

The 40-year-old actress revealed to E! that she has turned down "a lot" of acting jobs over the last few years because of her new business venture. "Flower beauty is a full-time job," she said. "We do a lot of traveling for it. I do a lot of press. I go to labs all over the country, truly seeking out the most innovative things."

Charles Sykes/Bravo(NEW YORK) -- When Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin announced in 2014 that they were splitting after 10 years of marriage, the pair famously referred to their split as a "conscious uncoupling."  The actress now revealed they didn't come up with the term.

In the September issue of Fast Company, Paltrow said the term was created by Elise Loehnen, the editorial director of her website, Goop.

"When I announced that I was separating on the website, [Loehnen] titled the piece 'Conscious Uncoupling,' and I had no idea," she explained.

Although she didn't come up with the term for her divorce, Paltrow said she's very hands-on with the content of Goop and it often surprises her when she reads some of the backlash she's personally receives. Paltrow got flack for suggesting that her readers purchase a juicer that costs more than $4,000 -- an item most of her readers can't afford -- and for even suggesting they try "vaginal steaming."

"I do think a lot of the misperception comes from people who haven’t actually gone on the site, because a lot of the things you see or hear, we’re like, ‘We never said that, never wrote that, that’s not the price point, or this was totally out of context,’" Paltrow clarified.  "It seems that when people really engage, they understand who we are and what we’re doing."

Paltrow said that some members on her team do get frazzled by the backlash, but she reminds them of one thing. "I just tell them that I think we are creating interesting discussions," she said in the magazine.

ABC/Lou Rocco(NEW YORK) -- Candace Cameron-Bure has reunited with her Full House co-stars for Netflix's upcoming sequel, Fuller House. The actress revealed more about the series on Monday's Good Morning America.

"This journey is really about the three women. It's a little flip-flop of the original show," she teased.

On Fuller House, Cameron-Bure's character will be a widowed mother of three sons, who has her sister Stephanie and friend Kimmy -- played by Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber, respectively -- move in to help. The show also will feature guest appearances by original stars Bob Saget, John Stamos, Dave Coulier and Lori Loughlin. Netflix's Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos said last month that twins Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen "are teetering whether or not they'll be around." The show will premiere in 2016.

"We tapped two episodes already and it's been amazing," Cameron-Bure continued. "And the fans, the people who have seen the live tapings are just...we've had people crying because of seeing us all back together and how nostalgic the show is."

But that's not all Cameron-Bure has going on. She's out with a new book, Dancing Through Life: Steps of Courage and Conviction. Bure described how the book changed last year.

"I was scheduled to write a book about motherhood and after Dancing with the Stars finished, I called up my publisher and I said, 'I just had the most incredible experience of my life, and I learned so much about myself in the four months that I was at the show," she said, "'and these were not just lessons about being on a reality show or a dance show, these were life lessons I'm gonna take away forever.'"

Timothy White/E!(LOS ANGELES) -- Khloe Kardashian recently turned heads, wearing very little on the cover of Complex magazine, and now she's revealing how she got that amazing body she flaunted.

Kardashian, 31, told Australian radio hosts Fitzy & Wippa that she's obsessed with working out.

In fact, she was jet lagged after her long travels, but still decided to hit the gym.

"It wasn't that intense here because I'm still jet lagged, but I make sure that I go," she said. "Even 30 minutes you feel, 'Okay, I feel good about myself.' Then if you want to eat something or whatever, then you don't feel as bad. Definitely when I'm in L.A., I go hard, and I've lost like 35 lbs."

Khloe said she doesn't weigh herself, but "I know how I want to feel in clothes, and it does become addicting."

Khloe has been open about her weight-loss journey, posting pictures to Instagram with messages of inspiration.

"Looking back at pictures of myself I didn't realize at the time how unhealthy my lifestyle actually was. People love to call me the fat one, but as weird as it sounds I still don't think I would consider myself fat back then," she wrote in February. "Definitely overweight and unhealthy, yes. About two years ago I decided to turn to fitness as a form of therapy and as a stress reliever."
