Anthony Bourdain cooks for Asia Argento, Rose McGowan, Annabella Sciorra
Anthony Bourdain says he cooked for girlfriend Asia Argento and two other outspoken advocates against sexual assault and harassment.

The 61-year-old chef and television personality shared a meal with Argento, Rose McGowan and Annabella Sciorra following their allegations of abuse against producer Harvey Weinstein.

Bourdain shared a photo Saturday on Twitter of Argento and McGowan smiling and pointing for the camera.

"It was an honor to cook for this meeting of the minds @AsiaArgento @rosemcgowan @AnnabellSciorra," he captioned the picture.

Argento said in the comments that Bourdain "cooked us food filled with love and strength." McGowan later told fans Bourdain made an omelet.

"Best omelet ever. @Bourdain @AsiaArgento @AnnabellaSciorra," she wrote.

Argento, McGowan and Sciorra are among the dozens of women who have accused Weinstein of sexual assault and harassment. Bourdain voiced his support for Argento after the actress came forward in October.

"I am proud and honored to know you. You just did the hardest thing in the world," he tweeted.


Jay Leno, Boyz II Men, Imagine Dragons to perform at Vegas Strong benefit show Friday
Comedian Jay Leno and Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper have joined the lineup for Friday's Vegas Strong Benefit Concert.

"I was born and raised in Las Vegas, and my pride for this great city runs deep," Harper said in a statement. "In the wake of this terrible event, the world has seen what I've always known to be true: how strong our city is and what a tight-knit, supportive community we have. I'm proud to be a part of the Vegas Strong benefit to support and honor those impacted by this tragedy and the city that I love."

The show at T-Mobile Arena is intended to be an evening of entertainment and support for the victims of the Oct. 1 mass shooting -- the deadliest in U.S. history -- which happened at the city's Route 91 Harvest country music festival. Fifty-eight people died and hundreds were injured in the attack.

Also expected to take the stage at the Vegas Strong event are Boyz II Men, Cirque du Soleil, David Copperfield, Imagine Dragons, Penn & Teller and The Killers.

Mariah Carey's Christmas tour delayed again
Music superstar Mariah Carey says she is "on the mend," but still not ready to begin her Christmas concert tour.

"Doctors have ordered a few extra days of rest before I can finally fly to New York and take the stage for my Christmas Tour," Carey tweeted Friday. "While this news disappoints me to share, I am grateful to be on the mend and for the support from all of you -- it means the world to me! See you from the stage soon darlings!"

Carey, 47, announced earlier this month that she was forced to scrap several planned shows because she had an upper respiratory infection, following the flu.

People magazine said Carey had been scheduled to kick off her tour in Ontario Nov. 17, but is now expected to begin the string of shows in New York Dec. 2.


'Bachelor' alum Kelly Travis expecting first child
Bachelor alum Kelly Travis is going to be a first-time mom.

The Season 18 contestant announced in an Instagram post that she's pregnant and expecting a baby with husband Hunter Hamm in June.

Travis shared a photo of a sonogram and a party popper filled with confetti. The post received over 16,500 likes.

"Hamm in the oven! So excited to announce baby Hamm is due June 2018. #thankful #hammintheoven," she captioned the picture.

Travis and Hamm married in Sea Island, Ga., in May 2016. Travis previously confessed in an interview with Modern Luxury that her heart was with Hamm, not Season 18 star Juan Pablo Galavis, during her time on The Bachelor.

"I found myself wishing I was with Hunter, instead of at all the incredible places the show was taking me," the star said before sharing that she immediately called Hamm after she was eliminated from the show.

"He was there when I got to the airport, and we have spent every day and night together since," she gushed.

Travis has since appeared as a guest judge on The Bachelorette Season 10 and as a contestant on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.

Who has been crowned Miss Universe 2017?

Miss South Africa won the Miss Universe pageant Sunday night, marking the first time that country has received the honor since 1978.

Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters beat 91 other women from around the world to take home the Miss Universe crown. The 22-year-old business management graduate said she is an advocate of self-defense for women and hopes to make it part of her platform as Miss Universe.

During the question and answer session of the program, which was recorded in Las Vegas and hosted by Steve Harvey, Nel-Peters also said women should be paid the same as men in the workplace.

"In some places, women get paid 75 percent of what men earn for doing the same job, working the same hours -- and I do not believe that this is right," she said.

The runner-up to Nel-Peters was Colombia's Laura Gonzalez and the second runner-up Jamaica's Davina Bennett.
