John Stamos is getting a handle on what’s been ailing him.
On Aug. 26, the “Full House” actor posted two photos from a hospital bed, but didn’t completely confirm why he was there. However, his caption certainly implied that he was getting surgery to correct a condition called Trigger Finger.
“Damn you #Triggerfinger,” he captioned the two images. John added the hashtags “Easy peasey” and “All good home happy.”

According to Mayo Clinic, Trigger Finger, also known as stenosing tenosynovitis, is a painful condition in which someone’s fingers gets stuck in a bent position, as if a trigger was being pulled.
After sharing the images, several media outlets confirmed that John got surgery on his hands to correct his Trigger Finger.
After his post, many of John’s 3.4 million Instagram followers commented with support, and many people even said they had similar surgeries.
After 13 years of keeping his feet firmly on the ground, Travis Barker is turning into quite the jetsetter.
This week, the Blink-182 drummer headed to Italy with his girlfriend, Kourtney Kardashian. It’s just the second time Travis has flown since his fiery and fatal plane crash in 2008.
On Aug. 27, TMZ posted video of Travis and Kourtney boarding a boat in San Fruttuoso, Italy. Earlier in the day they were spotted cuddling up on the beach.
This is the second international trip is as many weeks for the rocker. On Aug. 15, Travis jetted off to Los Cabos, Mexico, with Kourtney and a few of her family members. Two days later, he celebrated his return to the air by praising the “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star, implying that she was the driving force behind his airplane ride.

“With you anything is possible,” he captioned an image kissing Kourtney on the tarmac, which was taken after they flew from Los Angeles to Cabo.
It appears that Kourtney and Travis left their family members in L.A. for this romantic Italian getaway.
Back in 2008, the private plane carrying Travis crashed upon takeoff in South Carolina. His friends Chris Baker and Charles “Che” Still were killed, as were the two pilots. Although Travis escaped the engulfed plane, he was burned on 65 percent of his body and spent three months in the hospital, undergoing 26 surgeries and countless skin grafts.
Shortly after, Travis vowed to never fly again. However, he recently began warming to the idea of flying and even said he would get back in the air.
For chess players, the term “fork” is well known. For Anya Taylor-Joy, a fork is what she could have used while filming “The Queen’s Gambit.”
While chatting with Tatler magazine, the 25-year-old actress recalled filming the popular Netflix series after finishing back-to-back projects, including 2020’s “Emma” and the upcoming movie “Last Night in Soho.” She only took one day off in between all three projects. Because of the nonstop work schedule, her diet left much to be desired.
“I survived on Diet Coke, cigarettes and coffee, and by the end of it, I was like, ‘I need to eat a vegetable,'” she said.
It wasn’t just Anya’s diet that suffered, but her social life did, too, as she was going to bed every night at 8 p.m.
“It can be difficult when you’re ‘young’ to not feel guilty about not doing things that other 25-year-olds are doing,” she said, but quickly added that she no longer feels this way. “I still love going out and being around people, but now my work is taking up so much of my energy, I have to be a lot more careful because I end up paying for it. I don’t have time to be a 25-year-old with a hangover.”
She continued, “I’m not someone who needs a drink to dance. Basically I’ve become very efficient at everything. I’m like, ‘What do I need out of this situation? I need to dance for a couple of hours, see my friends and have a good time,’ so I’m like, ‘Right, OK, let’s bang it out.’ Then it’s: go home, have a bath, get up for work. I sound mental, but that’s what’s working for me right now.”
Oddly, quarantining during the COVID-19 pandemic helped her become more whole and centered.
“I do think there’s a specific period of time between the ages of 18 and 25 when you are so malleable,” she pontificated. “And because I was pouring so much energy into understanding these other people [the characters she plays], I was like a vase being filled with different colored liquids and I had no concept of who I was.”
“It definitely got to a point where I was like, ‘I haven’t had time to catch up with my personal life and my perception of myself because I’ve been chucking all these experiences in a backpack and continuing to barrel forward,’ Anya continued. “So quarantine was actually great because it let me sit down with everything and think, ‘Wow, that happened.'”
It’s almost September, but Demi Moore isn’t ready to end her hot girl summer.
On Aug. 26, the “G.I. Jane” actress posted a sweltering snapshot to Instagram while donning in a red one-piece swimsuit from her Andie Swim campaign.

“Red Hot Summer,” she captioned the image.
While the photo was intended to promote the swimwear line, many of Demi’s fans and celebrity pals didn’t hide their astonishment at the 58-year-old’s physique, something that has occurred all summer long.
“Stunning!,” commented Rita Wilson. Gena Lee Nolin, who starred in “Baywatch” throughout the ’90s, said, “You make my 20 something Baywatch days look boring!!!!”
Demi has spent much of the summer showing off her enviable body. In July, she almost broke the Internet while sharing a simple bikini selfie from Greece. Naturally, she was again wearing Andie Swimwear, a company she’s invested in.

In July, she formally announced her partnership with the swimsuit line during a photoshoot with her daughters, Rumer, Scout and Tallulah Willis.

She said the campaign was about “celebrating togetherness and showing up for the people you love.”
The star added, “It was only fitting that I got to share this moment with the people I love most.”
Demi later spoke of the investment and the familial bond, saying, “It was important to me to include my daughters in this campaign, and I hope others seize opportunities in their lives to create meaningful connections and celebrate every moment with the people they love.”
The Kardashians were born to be stars — or that’s what they thought in the late ’80s.
On Aug. 26, Kim Kardashian dove into the family archives and shared an incredible video of herself, Kourtney Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian auditioning for “Star Search.” In the video, the trio lip-synched to Tiffany’s “I Think We’re Alone Now.”
A post shared by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian)
Kim, Kourtney and Khloe all donned matching metallic outfits, and the youngest of the sisters also sported sunglasses. Khloe was also the most animated, swaying back and forth. Kim and Kourtney were rather stoic in their performances.
“Our Star Search audition!” Kim captioned the incredible throwback video. “Clearly we didn’t get 4 stars…but Kris Jenner did for our outfits!!!!”
Not surprisingly, friends and family were mesmerized by the video of the girls. Khloe even commented that she had “a 5 year old vibe!”
Kris, who was in charge of the wardrobe, wrote, “Those were the days!!!!! When I got to dress you guys!!!!!! I knew I should have been a stylist…..”
Chrissy Teigen added, “OHHHHHHHH MY GOD.”
Another friend wondered why we are just now seeing this treasure trove for the first time.
The comments — many aimed at Khloe’s energy — came at a fast and furious pace.
“Khloe understood the assignment,” one Instagram follower said. Another added, “Khloe has always been a vibe.”
Other comments centered on the family matriarch.
“Kris was on a mission from the get go!” one person said. Another said, “Mama was gonna make y’all stars one way or another!”
Nicole Polizzi, otherwise known as Snooki, is aware that a day will come in which her three children want to see her antics on “Jersey Shore,” and it “terrifies” her.
The “Messyness” host is especially worried about her daughter’s take.
“I’m really nervous about Giovanna seeing me do back handsprings in a dress and, like, my whole crotch is out. She’ll be like, ‘Mom, where’s your underwear?’ So that terrifies me,” Snooki told Page Six. “Getting arrested on the beach, and she’ll be like, ‘Mom, why are you getting arrested?’ So, stuff like that.”
The reality TV star shares three children — Lorenzo, 9, Giovanna, 6, and Angelo, 2 — with husband Jionni LaValle, and she’s hoping to use her wild history on the show as a teachable moment.
“I also feel like it could be a lesson to be like, ‘Kids, be way better than me because Mommy is a s–t show,'” Snooki said. “So, I feel like I can use it to my advantage.”
Like most of her fellow castmates, Snooki became a mainstream name after appearing on the MTV show from 2009 to 2012. She also appeared in “Jersey Shore: Family Vacation” from 2018 to 2020. She eventually left the show to spend more time with her family.
“It was really hard,” she told “The Mel Robbins Show” of the decision to leave the show that made her famous, “but I had to think about my happiness and where I really wanted myself to be, and it’s being a mom and being [with my] kids and not drama and drinking … and drama.”
Earlier this month, Kim Kardashian called Tristan Thompson a “Canadian Prophet” after his Instagram post about “changing.” While Kim appears to be on board with Tristan’s revelations, the Internet isn’t having the NBA player’s philosophical takes.
On Aug. 25, Khloe Kardashian‘s baby daddy took to Instagram to wax poetic about working hard to achieve goals.
A post shared by Tristan Thompson (@realtristan13)
“Want to improve your health, your career, your life?,” he wrote alongside a few images at basketball practice. “Keep showing up. Keep showing up. Keep showing up.”
Not surprisingly, several NBA players applauded Tristan’s words, as did Khloe’s brother, Rob Kardashian, but the multitude of the hoopster’s Instagram followers felt that his words were hollow, and everyone’s comments were essentially the same.
“How about improving relationships?,” one person said. Another chided, “Improve being a better partner.” Yet one more wrote, “You ‘keep showing up’ in other women’s beds.”
Tristan has been the Internet’s punching bag for several years, based mostly on his spotty track record of faithfulness to Khloe.
Back in 2018, just two days before Khloe gave birth to their daughter, True, videos emerged of Tristan cheating on the reality TV star with several women. In the following days, he was then linked to even more women, and Khloe chose to stay with him. Then in 2019, he was again accused of cheating on Khloe, this time with Kylie Jenner’s now-former BFF Jordyn Woods. After that, the duo split. Soon, though, they were back on. The roller coaster continued in June 2021, as reports claimed the couple split again amid different cheating allegations.
Seemingly after every breakup, Tristan tries to win Khloe back with public declarations and flirtatious comments. So far, it’s usually worked. After his most recent post, one commenter alluded to that, predicting, “Khloe [will] fall for those words.”
In fact, just two weeks ago, a report claimed Khloe and Tristan were back on again. However, more reputable media outlets said the two were simply co-parenting. Still, that didn’t stop one person from ripping Khloe for her reconciliations with True’s dad.
“At this point @khloekardashian has no self worth. Anyway…,” the person said on Twitter last week. Khloe fired back, “You’re telling me you made an assessment about my life because of a random blog? I think that says more about you than it does about me.”
Erin Andrews is trying to take a shot at motherhood… again.
The former “Dancing With The Stars” host revealed she’s going through with her seventh round of in vitro fertilization treatments in hopes of starting a family with her husband of four years, Jarret Stoll.
“For those familiar, you know it’s a time-consuming and emotionally draining process,” she wrote on her blog, The Real Dal with Erin Andrews. “This is my 7th one, and I’ve been going through these treatments since I was 35 years old.”
The sports reporter, now 43, said the process of IVF is more difficult because of her age.
“I have been trying to do IVF treatment for a while now, but sometimes it doesn’t go the way you want it,” she wrote. “Every cycle is different in a woman’s body, so some months are better than others.”
Finding a balance between wanting a child and her career is almost equally as difficult.
“I work in an industry where I think women feel the need to keep things like this quiet,” she continued. “But no, there are so many other women who maybe put their careers on the back burner because they don’t want to miss out on any opportunities. It’s so common that people are starting families late and put so many other aspects of their lives on hold.”
Erin admitted that she was hesitant about being so open with her IVF struggles, but she ultimately embraced it.
“It’s a team that no one wants to be a part of. We’re all going through this and having a tough time. It can be so isolating, but in reality, we are all there together,” she said, noting the toll the treatments take on the body. “You feel bloated and hormonal for a week and a half. You could go through this whole experience and get absolutely nothing out of it — that’s the crazy part. It’s a ton of money, it’s a ton of time, it’s a ton of mental and physical anguish. And more times than not, they’re unsuccessful.”
She added, “Now that it’s my seventh time, something just hit me: Why am I keeping this such a secret when this is just a part of our lives? Instead of feeling ashamed, we need to give ourselves more love.”
Jason Aldean is mourning more than just the loss of a dear friend, he’s also mourning the loss of the man who may have saved his life.
On Aug. 25 the country singer publicly paid tribute to his longtime security guard Ryan Fleming — Ryan was the person who pulled Jason off the stage when a gunman opened fire during a Las Vegas concert in 2017.
Still the biggest mass shooting in United States history, 58 people lost their lives that day and over 800 more were injured. Jason could have been one of those victims if not for Ryan.
“Man this is a hard post to write. We lost one of our boys today,” Jason, 44, emotionally captioned a series of images. “Ryan Fleming aka @rhinolin3 was a friend I grew up with in Georgia.”
Friends for over 25 years, Ryan was a bouncer at a bar in Macon, Georgia. He then worked for the Sheriff’s Department.

“When it came time for me to hire a security guy that I knew would always look out for me and my family, There was no question for me that person was Rhino,” Jason wrote on Instagram. “He came out and traveled the world with us and for years if u saw me, Rhino wasn’t too far away.”
That was very evident on Oct. 1, 2017, at the Route 91 Harvest Festival, which was outdoors. Jason was just a few songs into his set when a man perched atop an adjacent hotel began firing at the crowd of 22,000.
“[Ryan] was the person who pulled me offstage during the Route 91 shooting and put his life in danger to take care of me and my crew,” Jason wrote. “He was a good man and an even better friend.”
He added, “We will all miss you brother and thank you for having my back all these years. We love ya Rhino! RIP”
After Jason’s post, many fellow country singers expressed their condolences and told their own stories about Ryan.
Luke Bryan said he was “praying” for Ryan’s family, and Morgan Wallen called it “awful news.” Kane Brown commented, “My favorite time with him was when he would ride my bus and drink A whole 24 pack to his self… the window was lined with empty cans.”
As friends and family showered Jason and Ryan’s family with support, the “Dirt Road Anthem” singer shared another post of his late bodyguard watching over him during a concert.

“Thank you Rhino!” Jason wrote. “See ya down the road one day bro. RIP.”
