Mariah Carey shares struggle with bipolar disorder
Mariah Carey is sharing her struggle with bipolar disorder for the first time.

The 49-year-old singer went public with her bipolar II diagnosis in the April 23 issue of People after years of living in "denial and isolation."

"Until recently I lived in denial and isolation and in constant fear someone would expose me," Carey told the magazine.

"It was too heavy a burden to carry and I simply couldn't do that anymore," she said. "I sought and received treatment, I put positive people around me and I got back to doing what I love -- writing songs and making music."

Carey was first diagnosed in 2001 during her hospitalization for a physical and mental breakdown. Bipolar II disorder is characterized by hypomania, which is less severe than mania with bipolar I disorder, and periods of depression.

"For a long time I thought I had a severe sleep disorder," Carey recalled. "I was irritable and in constant fear of letting people down. It turns out that I was experiencing a form of mania. Eventually I would just hit a wall."

The "I Don't" singer is now in therapy and taking medication to manage her condition.

"I'm just in a really good place now," she said. "[Bipolar disorder] does not have to define you and I refuse to allow it to define me or control me."

Carey said in an Instagram post Wednesday that she's "grateful to be sharing this part of [her] journey" with fans. Many voiced their support for the star in the comments, with one person writing, "Thank you for sharing this with the world. You show me what strength is everyday."


Showtime to air Kevin Smith comedy special
Kevin Smith announced via Twitter on Monday that Showtime will air the comedy special he was filming when he had his Feb. 26 heart attack.

"The comedy special I was shooting with @comedydynamics the night I almost died of a heart attack has been picked up by @Showtime! Mark your calendars: It airs MAY 11th on the same network as @SHO_Homeland! Thanks for the home, #Showtime!" the 47-year-old performer and filmmaker tweeted.

The cable network also confirmed the airdate in its own social-media post.

The 47-year-old star was filming the special in Glendale, Calif., when he started feeling ill and canceled his second show to head to the hospital. Doctors discovered Smith had a 100 percent blockage of his left anterior descending artery and underwent emergency surgery.

The Dogma and Clerks writer-director-star recently said he has lost nearly 30 pounds since his health crisis.

'Late Night' host Seth Meyers welcomes second son
Late Night host Seth Meyers is a dad of two.

The 44-year-old television personality said on Monday's episode of Late Night with Seth Meyers that wife Alexi Ashe gave birth to a baby boy, Axel Strahl, in the lobby of their apartment building.

Meyers, who already shares 2-year-old son Ashe Olson with Ashe, said he was having a "normal Sunday" with his wife when she started having contractions. The couple's plan to casually make their way to the hospital quickly fell apart.

"I'm feeding our son Ashe lunch. My wife is upstairs with my mother-in-law, Joan," Meyers recounted. "About 20 minutes into lunch, Joan comes downstairs and just looks at me and says, 'We have to go to the hospital now!'"

"My sister-in-law, Ariel, she comes over to watch Ashe," he said. "[Our doula] joins us. The four of us get in the elevator. My wife is in an intense amount of pain. It seems like now it's just one long contraction."

Meyers said their Uber was waiting outside the lobby when his wife announced the baby was coming.

"My wife's saying, 'The baby is coming. The baby is out,'" the star recalled. "I looked at my wife and the only way I can describe how my wife looked like is she looked like someone who was trying to hide a baby in a pair of sweatpants."

"She laid down in our lobby and we sort of created a semi-circle around her. We undressed her and the baby was just out, the head of the baby was out," he said. "I called 911 and ... over the course of about a minute conversation, I basically said, 'We're about to have a baby. We're having a baby. We had a baby.'"

Meyers confirmed the news on the Late Night with Seth Meyers official Twitter account, writing, "On Sunday, the newest addition to the Meyers family entered the world." The television personality had announced Ashe's pregnancy in November.


Amal Clooney says romance with George felt 'natural'
Amal Clooney says her romance with husband George Clooney felt "natural."

The 40-year-old barrister recalled falling for the 56-year-old actor in the May issue of Vogue. Amal and George had their first date at a restaurant in London after meeting at George's house in Lake Como, Italy.

"It felt like the most natural thing in the world," Amal said of their romance. "Before that experience, I always hoped there could be love that was overwhelming and didn't require any weighing or decision-making."

"It's the one thing in life that I think is the biggest determinant of happiness, and it's the thing you have the least control over," she explained. "Are you going to meet this person? I was 35 when I met him. It wasn't obvious that it was going to happen for me."

George agreed, saying he was instantly attracted to Amal when they met and "immediately knew that something was very different" after their first date.

"Of course she was beautiful," the actor said. "But I also thought she was fascinating, and I thought she was brilliant. Her life was incredibly exciting -- the clients she was taking on and the superhuman work she was doing. I was taken with her from the moment I saw her."

Amal and George married in Venice, Italy, in September 2014, and welcomed their twins, daughter Ella and son Alexander, in June. George couldn't help but gush about Amal in the February episode of My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman, saying the barrister gave his life greater purpose.

"I have to say, before I had the twins I felt that about her," the star said.

"I felt that I met someone who I would absolutely trade my life for. I met someone that her life meant more to me than my life, and I'd never had that experience before," he added.

Which reality star will look for love on a new TLC series?

Mom-of-eight Kate Gosselin will look for love on a new TLC series.

The 43-year-old television personality will star on Kate Plus Date, which will follow Gosselin as she explores dating nearly 10 years after her divorce from Jon Gosselin.

"@Kateplusmy8 is looking for love on her new series, #KatePlusDate!" TLC confirmed in a tweet Monday.

Gosselin said in an interview with People that she's "nervous" but "excited" about the show. She shares 17-year-old twins Cara and Mady and 13-year-old sextuplets Aaden, Alexis, Collin, Hannah, Joel and Leah, with Jon, from whom she split in June 2009.

"It was very apparent, now that they're older and talking about dating and how they're all gonna get married someday ... it became apparent: they want someone for me," the star said of her kids. "They want me to have somebody in my life."

"I stopped focusing on myself -- I used to be a runner, and all of these things sort of fell by the wayside, and I sort of forgot about the dating thing," she explained. "It's never really fit into my life."

Gosselin said she's "open" to meeting "whoever," but is looking for a mature individual who respects her independence and can ultimately develop a relationship with her children.

"I do want someone with a set career, who is confident," the star said. "A grown-up with their own life, their own agenda, who knows who they are. If someone travels for work, that would be great, because I'm used to being on my own and being self-sufficient."

"[I] would love my kids to have a mutual friendship and respect with this guy and for him to be someone they can ask for advice," she added. "It would be great for my kids to have someone they can feel like is a real friend."

Gosselin and her family came to fame on the TLC series Jon & Kate Plus 8, which was renamed Kate Plus 8 following the star's divorce.
