Rihanna mourns cousins's death, calls for end to gun violence
Rihanna mourned the death of her cousin on Instagram Tuesday, just one day after the family members spent Christmas together.

"RIP cousin... can't believe it was just last night that I held you in my arms! never thought that would be the last time I felt the warmth in your body!!!," the singer said alongside a collection of photos of herself posing with her cousin, Tavon Kaiseen Alleyne.

"Love you always man! #endgunviolence," she continued.

Alleyne, 21, was shot by an unidentified man Tuesday night while he was walking near his home in Barbados, the Royal Barbados Police Force said in a report from Nation News. Alleyne died later due to his injuries at a hospital.

The shooter fled the scene of the crime and police are investigating the case, Sky News reported.

Rihanna recently made headlines in November when the government of Barbados announced that the street that she grew up on would be renamed "Rihanna Drive."

Mark Hamill pays tribute to Carrie Fisher: 'No one's ever really gone'
Mark Hamill paid tribute to Carrie Fisher on Twitter Wednesday, on the one-year anniversary of her death.

"No one's ever really gone...#AlwaysWithUs #CarrieOnForever," Hamill said alongside a collection of photos of the Star Wars stars posing together.

The photos included shots of Hamill and Fisher during their time starring in the original Star Wars trilogy of films that began with 1977's A New Hope and a shot of the pair embracing each other in character as Luke Skywalker and General Leia from the recently released latest entry in the series, The Last Jedi.

Hamill also posted a painting of Fisher sticking up her middle finger while holding her dog Gary.

Hamill recently made headlines for admitting that he and Fisher would make out while on the set of A New Hope.

Fisher died at the age of 60 in December 2016 following a heart attack. She was able to complete her scenes for The Last Jedi before her death, but will not appear in the forthcoming Star Wars: Episode IX.

Star Wars actor John Boyega, when discussing Fisher in The Last Jedi, said that her final appearance is a proper farewell to the character.

"It sends her off in a very amazing, amazing way," he previously said. "And she's still kept alive in this franchise. That's the beauty of it -- she lives forever in a sense."

"I've always been the girl who goes by how my clothes fit. I don't weigh myself - I just like to feel good in my body."

Paul Reiser, Helen Hunt in talks for 'Mad About You' revival
Sony Pictures Television is developing a Mad About You revival with original stars Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt in talks to return.

The revival is being developed as a limited series focusing on Paul (Reiser) and Jamie (Hunt), dealing with empty nest syndrome as their 17-year-old daughter, Mabel, heads off to college, TV Line reported.

Reiser co-created Mad About You with Danny Jacobson. The sitcom ran for seven seasons on NBC from 1992 to 1999 and won multiple Emmy and Golden Globe awards.

The show followed married couple Paul and Jamie Buchman as they lived their daily lives. Anne Ramsay, Leila Kenzle, John Pankow and Richard Kind also starred.

"I always said no to a reunion or a reboot and now that everybody keeps asking, it's possible...I always said if there's a reason for it, if there's a story to tell," Reiser told E! News previously about bringing back Mad About You.

"I'm open to it if we come up with a great idea and if America needs it...If there's a want, if there's a demand, we'll see."

'Roseanne' revival promo makes fun of John Goodman's return
Roseanne Barr and John Goodman are back in a series of new promo's for ABC's upcoming revival of Roseanne.

The clips, released Monday, feature Goodman and Barr reprising their roles as Roseanne and Dan Conner as they enjoy the holidays together by watching a basketball game.

Alicia Goranson as Becky Connor and Sara Gilbert as Darlene Conner are also seen in the teasers.

"You can't live in the past Dan," Barr jokes to Goodman, referencing how his character died in the series finale of Roseanne after nine seasons in 1997. "When things are gone, they're gone forever."

"I don't want to talk too specifically, but I wouldn't say we'll ignore the events of the finale," ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey previously said to Entertainment Weekly about Goodman's character before confirming that he will not be dead in the revival.

"Dan is definitely still alive," he continued.

The first promo features Goodman unable to realize he is watching a basketball game due to getting concussions from playing football.

The second teaser involves Gilbert and Goodman explaining the rules of basketball to a clueless Barr.

Roseanne is set to premiere on ABC on March 27. The revival will also feature the returns of Laurie Metcalf as Jackie Harris, Michael Fishman as D.J. Connor and Johnny Galecki as David Healy.

Which celebrity live-tweeted about her diverted flight with an unauthorized passenger?

Chrissy Teigen live-tweeted Tuesday her experience being onboard a diverted Tokyo-bound flight that was forced to return to Los Angles due to an unauthorized passenger being onboard.

"A flying first for me: 4 hours into an 11 hour flight and we are turning around because we have a passenger who isn't supposed to be on this plane. Why...why do we all gotta go back, I do not know," the model and TV personality said before she started regularly updating her followers on the situation.

"I don't know why I'm not more upset about this. The pleasure I get out of the story is worth more to me than a direct flight to Tokyo," she continued.

The All Nippon Airways flight was bound for Tokyo's Narita Airport before it turned back to LAX after it was discovered that an unauthorized person made it onboard.

"During the flight, the cabin crew became aware that one of the passengers boarded the incorrect flight and notified the pilot. As part of the airline's security procedure, the pilot in command decided to return to the originating airport, where the passenger was disembarked," Nippon Airways said in a statement Wednesday. "ANA is researching the situation currently to determine how the passenger boarded the flight. ANA would like to express its apologies to the passengers for the inconvenience. We take great pride providing exemplary customer service, and on this flight we failed to do so."

Teigen said that passengers explained to her that the unauthorized person was let onto the flight despite having a ticket for a different airline.

"They keep saying the person had a United ticket. We are on ANA. So basically the boarding pass scanner is just a beedoop machine that makes beedoop noises that register to nowhere," she said.

LAX Airport Police had a unit and supervisors on scene to meet flight ANA 175 as it arrived back to Los Angeles, ABC 7 reported.

Authorities said the flight was returned to LAX due to a "mix up and was straightened up."

"Police were interviewing all the people seated around the mystery person once we got off the plane. Why would they do this! I MUST KNOW MORE," Teigen said of meeting with police before noting that she did not find out more concerning the incident."No will spill anything. I wish I had more for you guys. I wish I could be your Snowden."

The flight was re-boarded and sent back to Tokyo Wednesday morning. Teigen continued to live-tweet the event, sharing how she and her husband John Legend were provided with a resting room as they waited to re-board the plane.
