Here's the Scoop...

I think with all that's been going on lately that it's time for a sweet, nice story.

Justin Timberlake marked his fifth anniversary with Jessica Biel by recalling their first dance as a married couple.

The 36-year-old singer shared his rendition of the Leon Russell single "A Song for You" while reflecting on his wedding to Biel in an Instagram post Thursday.

"#TBT to a late night freestyle session on a break in the studio," Timberlake captioned a series of clips of himself singing.

"YES I've been back in the studio cooking!" he confirmed. "But, today is even more special for me because five years ago, on this day, I became the luckiest man in the world when I exchanged vows with my best friend. This song was our first dance."

"To my beautiful @jessicalbiel: You have taught me so much about what a true love means," the star gushed. "I can't put into words what these last five years have meant to me, so... 'Listen to the melody 'cause my love is in there hiding...' #Happy5thAnniversaryWifey #ASongForYou."

Biel re-posted one of the videos on her own account, writing, "My tender heart is yours, now and forever." She followed up with a clip of herself and Timberlake grooving in a car while using a Snapchat filter.

"How lucky am I? Even if he's initially skeptical, he always gets extra for me. #5," the 35-year-old actress wrote.

Timberlake and Biel married in Fasano, Italy, in 2012 after nearly six years of dating. The couple share 2-year-old son Silas, whom Biel described as a "mini" Timberlake in an interview with The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon in July.

"It's his style," she explained. "He's got, like, a daddy swagger."

Let's have a good week! We all could use one.

Be Well,
Steve

Quentin Tarantino on Harvey Weinstein: 'I knew enough to do more than I did'
Quentin Tarantino said he was aware of claims about producer Harvey Weinstein's sexual misconduct and wishes he did more to stop it.

"I knew enough to do more than I did," the director, who has worked with Weinstein throughout his career, told The New York Times in an article published Thursday.

"There was more to it than just the normal rumors, the normal gossip. It wasn't secondhand. I knew he did a couple of these things," he continued.

Tarantino says he was aware of Weinstein's sexual advances towards actress Mira Sorvino in 1995, whom the filmmaker was dating at the time. "I was shocked an appalled," Tarantino said of Sorvino telling him Weinstein had chased her around a hotel room and showed up at her apartment in the middle of the night.

"I couldn't believe he would do that so openly. I was like: 'Really? Really?' But the thing I thought then, at the time, was that he was particularly hung up on Mira," Tarantino said before offering why he felt the problem was resolved by dating Sorvino. "I'm with her, he knows that, he won't mess with her, he knows that she's my girlfriend," he said.

Tarantino also shared how he was aware of another actress who told him Weinstein had approached her and how actress Rose McGowan had reached a settlement with the Hollywood mogul."I chalked it up to a '50s-'60s era image of a boss chasing a secretary around the desk," Tarantino said. "As if that's OK. That's the egg on my face right now."

Weinstein worked with Tarantino on nearly all of his films, including Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill, Inglorious Basterds and The Hateful Eight.

McGowan is among a number of women who have said Weinstein raped or harassed them since an initial New York Times report containing allegations Oct. 10. Other women have come forward, including Lupita Nyong'o, who shared her experiences with the 65-year-old Thursday in an op-ed written by the actress in The New York Times.

Nyong'o wrote that Weinstein made her feel uncomfortable early in her career after she was invited to a screening at his home. "Harvey led me into a bedroom - his bedroom - and announced that he wanted to give me a massage. I thought he was joking at first. He was not," she wrote of the encounter, which included Weinstein saying he wanted to take his pants off.

"I told him not to do that and informed him that it would make me extremely uncomfortable," she continued before saying she left his house shortly after.

In another meeting between the pair, Nyong'o said Weinstein asked her to join him in a private room, which she declined. "Though we may have endured powerlessness at the hands of Harvey Weinstein, by speaking up, speaking out and speaking together, we regain that power. And we hopefully ensure that this kind of rampant predatory behavior as an accepted feature of our industry dies here and now," Nyong'o wrote about sharing her story.

Also on Thursday, the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed on Twitter that an investigation was ongoing concerning Weinstein and an anonymous Italian model-actress who says Weinstein sexually assaulted her in 2013.

"Mr. Weinstein obviously can't speak to anonymous allegations, but he unequivocally denies allegations of non-consensual sex," a rep for Weinstein told People magazine in response to the investigation.

As the sexual assault and harassment claims have stacked up, Weinstein has been fired from The Weinstein Company, expelled from The Motion Picture Academy of Arts and Sciences, which oversees the Oscars, and has had his wife Georgina Chapman announce that she is leaving him.

Ines Rau becomes Playboy's first transgender Playmate
Playboy will soon feature its first transgender Playmate, Ines Rau.

The 26-year-old French model voiced her gratitude in an Instagram post Friday after news broke she will appear as the centerfold in the magazine's November/December issue.

"I am proud to be making history and breaking boundaries!" Rau, who is of North African descent, wrote.

"I want to thank the Hefner family and Playboy enterprise for the compliment! Being asked to be a Playmate was for me like getting a giant bouquet of roses, I am so flattered and beyond grateful!" she added.

Rau said in an interview with Playboy that she didn't openly identify as transgender for years because she was "scared" of what other people would think. She encouraged fans to embrace their own truths.

"I lived a long time without saying I was transgender," the model told the magazine. "I was scared of never finding a boyfriend and being seen as weird. Then I was like, You know, you should just be who you are."

"It's a salvation to speak the truth about yourself, whether it's your gender, sexuality, whatever. The people who reject you aren't worth it," she advised. "It's not about being loved by others; it's about loving yourself."

Rau was previously featured in the May 2014 issue of Playboy, but not as a Playmate, or centerfold. British star Caroline Cossey, aka Tula, was the first transgender model to pose for the magazine, appearing in 1991.


Hollywood Walk of Fame star to be dedicated to the late Selena Quintanilla
The late Tejano music icon Selena Quintanilla is getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Nov. 3.

Hollywood Chamber President/Chief Executive Officer and Walk of Fame emcee Leron Gubler, along with members of the Quintanilla family, are expected to unveil her star in front of the Capitol Records building in Hollywood.

Actress, producer, director and Texas native Eva Longoria will also join Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti to proclaim Nov. 3 "Selena Day" in the City of Los Angeles.

Quintanilla was a Texas-born singer-songwriter, who was shot and killed by a former employee in 1995. She was 23. Jennifer Lopez portrayed the artist in the 1997 movie, Selena.

"Before there was J. Lo, Shakira or Beyoncé... there was a transformative female artist called.... Selena," Otto Padron, president of Meruelo Media and the official sponsor of the tribute, said in a statement. "Selena is one of the most influential music icons of the 20th century. Her music, style and smile are timeless and now her star will grace our city forever."

"We are honored to continue to be a part of Selena's story and witness this well-deserved recognition, without a doubt she is one of the most influential figures in Spanish music and her legacy will continue to transcend generations," added Victor Gonzalez, president of Universal Music Latin Entertainment.

Which Golden Globe winning actor has replaced Owen Wilson in the TBS anthology series 'Miracle Workers'?

Steve Buscemi is set to replace Owen Wilson as the co-lead of TBS's upcoming comedic anthology series Miracle Workers.

Buscemi will star alongside Daniel Radcliffe in the seven-episode comedy series after Wilson dropped out of the project in August.

The series takes place in a heaven-set workplace where Buscemi, who last appeared on television in HBO's Boardwalk Empire, will star as God.

Radcliffe stars opposite Buscemi as Craig, a low-level angel responsible for handling all of humanity's prayers, working for a God that has checked out of his job to focus on his favorite hobbies.

Miracle Workers is executive produced by Saturday Night Live's Lorne Michaels and created by Man Seeking Woman's Simon Rich, who also will serve as showrunner.

The series is based on Rich's book What in God's Name and was picked up by TBS as part of its upfront slate.

Production was stalled after Wilson decided to leave the project and Miracle Workers is currently scheduled to premier in 2018.
