“For years, I have been asked if I would ever host the Oscars,” Kevin Hart posted on Instagram. “My answer was always the same – I said that it would be the opportunity of a lifetime for me as a comedian and that it will happen when it’s suppose[d] to.”

Clearly it’s time because the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences confirmed Hart as the host the 91st Academy Awards ceremony. He takes over after Jimmy Kimmel did it for the past two years to declining ratings.

The Oscars will air on Sunday, February 24th on ABC.

We told you yesterday that Chrissy Teigen has been open about her son being fitted for a special helmet to fix his “slightly misshapen head.” As usual, it looks the trolls of the Twitterverse did what they do best and threw some hate her way. Now, the model is clapping back.

Apparently, some supposed know-it-alls assumed that Teigen and her hubby John Legend didn’t do their research before getting little Miles fitted for the therapy helmet. So, Teigen has taken to Twitter to address the haters, telling the “trolls” to go “back to your bridge now.”

“Just a friendly reminder that you do not indeed know absolutely everything,” she writes. “Miles has been seeing a physiotherapist – we didn’t just go straight to helmet. We tried muscle work and will continue.” Check out the tweets below.

The house that Megyn Kelly built is no more. “Today” is moving the third hour of the show back to studio 1A – the same place from which the first two hours are broadcast. A spokesperson for NBC News says the move will streamline the production process and make the division between the two broadcasts more seamless. The last broadcast of the show from its current home at studio 6A will happen on January 4th. No word on who’ll host the show.

Jason James Richter, you know, the boy from Free Willy, got a plea deal after being arrested in October for domestic violence. He was charged with two misdemeanors – one for domestic battery and one for vandalism. He pleaded no contest to the vandalism charge, which got the domestic battery charge dismissed. He ended up getting four days in jail and 36 months probation but the court gave him credit for the two days he’d spent in jail in October. He’ll also have to pay fines that include restitution to his girlfriend, with whom he was fighting.

Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are the parents of two children. While he says that fatherhood has made him “a better person,” they aren’t trying to add to their brood anytime soon.

Ryan was joking with Ellen DeGeneres about his kids and said, “That happened from sex.” Ellen was like, “So you’ve only had sex twice?” He replied, “Yeah. It’s a mercenary job. Hoping for a third soon.” When the crowd started to cheer, he quickly shut down THAT rumor.
