Here's the Scoop...

Do you collect stamps? Do you like 'Game of Thrones'? Well, if you said, "Yes" or "Maybe" then get ready for this...

The U.K.'s Royal Mail postal service has announced a new set of stamps based on HBO's hit fantasy drama Game of Thrones.

The set includes 10 characters from the show and a few creatures, including a dragon, a pair of giants, the evil Night King and White Walkers and the Iron Throne itself.

Characters include Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), Jon Snow (Kit Harington), Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), Arya Stark (Maisie Williams), Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey), Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner), Eddard Stark (Sean Bean), Olenna Tyrell (Diana Rigg), and Tywin Lannister (Charles Dance).

Royal Mail announced that some of the stamps are limited to a run of 1,500. Fans can pre-order the collection before Jan. 23.

Harington said in December that production on the forthcoming eighth and final season of Game of Thrones is "going really well," but, there is a pressure to deliver as the season "is one where we could easily let people down."

Stamp it up!

Be Well,
Steve

'Fixer Upper's' Chip and Joanna Gaines expecting fifth child together
Fixer Upper stars Chip and Joanna Gaines announced on Instagram Tuesday that they are expecting their fifth child together.

"Gaines party of 7.. (If you're still confused.. WE ARE PREGNANT)," Chip said alongside a comedic photo of himself and his wife comparing their stomachs together.

Chip and Joanna are already parents to 12-year-old Drake, 11-year-old Ella, 9-year-old Duke and 7-year-old Emmie Kay.

The couple announced in September that HGTV's Fixer Upper will end after Season 5 in order to focus on their family and other business ventures.

"The most important thing in the world is Jo and I's relationship, followed very quickly by these four beautiful kids [of ours]," Chip said previously on Today of the decision to end the show.

"We didn't want to push it, redline it for so long that we woke up and realized we are at a point of no return," he continued. "So we wanted to take a step back and focus on what is absolutely the most important thing to us."

Joanna's younger sister Mary Kay McCall, who was featured on Tuesday night's episode of Fixer Upper, is expecting her sixth child as well.


Rose McGowan to appear in five-part E! documentary
Actress Rose McGowan is set appear in a five-part documentary on E!, the network announced Tuesday

The five-part series titled Citizen Rose will air on E! beginning with a 2-hour premiere Jan. 30 at 8 p.m. followed by four additional episodes set to air in the spring.

"You are formally invited into my mind and world. I am thrilled to partner with E! to amplify my message of bravery, art, joy and survival," McGowan said.

Citizen Rose will follow McGowan during the preparation for the release of her book Brave.

"As I ready my book, Brave, I realized I wanted to show how we can heal through art even when being hounded by evil. I want to have a conversation with everyone, and most especially, you, about looking at things differently and seeing beauty everywhere," she said. "E!'s tremendous reach and impressive platform allow me to globally communicate the importance of living a Brave life."

McGowan was at the center of the #MeToo movement near the end of 2017. She was among the several women named in a New York Times report that first outed Harvey Weinstein's alleged sexual misconduct.

"Rose McGowan's courage in addressing sexual abuse and harassment in Hollywood ignited a conversation and inspired other women to speak out against their abuser," Amy Introcaso-Davis, executive vice president of development and production at E!, said. "We look forward to taking viewers inside this talented, dynamic woman's world as the first allegations unfold and she becomes a leading voice in a critical cultural change."

McGowan is set to executive produce the documentary along with Bunim/Murray Productions.

America Ferrera reunites with 'Sisterhood' cast amid pregnancy
America Ferrera reunited with her Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants co-stars following news of her pregnancy.

The 33-year-old actress spent time with Alexis Bledel, Amber Tamblyn and Blake Lively on Tuesday after announcing she's expecting her first child with husband Ryan Piers Williams.

Ferrera was all smiles in a photo on Instagram of Bledel, Tamblyn and Lively touching her baby bump. Lively herself is mom to two daughters, while Bledel and Tamblyn have a son and a daughter, respectively.

"Starting the New Year off with blessings from my Sisterhood. We've got work to do for the next generation. Let's get to it. #TIMESUP," Ferrera captioned the picture.

Ferrera had shared news of her pregnancy in an Instagram post Sunday on New Year's Eve. She and Williams, a 36-year-old actor, married in June 2011 after six years of dating.

"We're welcoming one more face to kiss in 2018!" the actress wrote alongside a photo of a baby onesie. "Wishing you #MásBesos in the New Year! #babybesos #HappyNewYear."

Ferrera, Bledel, Tamblyn and Lively played Carmen, Lena, Tibby and Bridget in Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and its sequel. Lively told E! News in July 2015 that she would be interested in a third movie.

"We would love that," she said of herself and her co-stars. "We are such good friends."


??? Guess Who ???

Which singer/actor will show his 'tush' on 'American Crime Story: Versace'?

Ricky Martin will show his "tush" in Season 2 of the FX series American Crime Story.

The 46-year-old said on Tuesday's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show that he will bare his behind for the first time on TV as Antonio D'Amico on American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace.

"I show my tush for the first time on television," he told host Ellen DeGeneres, who had seen episodes of the yet-to-be-released season.

"You sure do, and more than that," DeGeneres responded.

D'Amico was the longtime partner of Italian fashion designer Gianni Versace (Edgar Ramirez), who was killed outside his Miami Beach mansion in 1997. Versace will examine the murder and Versace's killer, Andrew Cunanan (Darren Criss).

"It's an amazing series," Martin said. "Brilliantly written. Dramatic. My first scenes that I shot was when [my character] actually found [Versace's] body."

"I'm really happy to be part of this because even though so many years went by, we are still dealing with a lot of things -- as a member of the LGBT community -- that we dealt with in the '90s," he added. "For example, the killer, Andrew Cunanan ... went on a killing spree ... he [was] killing gay men."

Versace co-stars Ramirez, Criss and Penelope Cruz as Donatella Versace. The season introduced the characters in a first full-length trailer in November, and will premiere Jan. 17.
