    Joanna Gaines posted on her Facebook page Friday to address rumors that she’s leaving HGTV’s “Fixer Upper” to work on a skin care line. She used the opportunity to make it clear that the rumors are not true.

    “I wanted to take a minute to let y’all know that it’s simply not true,” she wrote. “This is a SCAM! We have nothing to do with it and have been trying to stop it for some time.”

    Joanna had previously written about the scam in a blog post back in April, writing, “We are currently filming season 5 of the show ... I am not getting into the business of facial creams ... Don’t buy the facial cream, friends.”

    “Don’t believe everything you read,” she also advised fans.

    Joanna Gaines encouraged fans to spread the information and to report any “fake news websites or sponsored ads.”

    According to Cincinnati’s WCPO, rumors that Joanna Gaines was working with a new skin care line, Derma Folia Renewal, arose in April. Many people spread the rumor on social media, and fans purchased products with the belief that they were being promoted by Joanna Gaines. A representative for Joanna Gaines said that month that the rumors were untrue and that she was unaffiliated with the products.

    Menounos revealed she felt frustrated after her mother’s stage IV brain cancer diagnosis and tried to reckon with a higher power as she watched her mother’s battle.

    “I was getting really frustrated because she wasn’t fighting and she was doing worse,” Menounos said of her mother in an interview on “Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly.” “I just remember praying and just saying, ‘God, I wish you gave this to me because I have the fight and I have the will to beat this stuff. She doesn’t.’ And, uh, be careful what you wish for.”

    Shortly after her mother, Litsa Menounos underwent surgery, Menounos said she started experiencing headaches and dizziness and had a difficult time reading the teleprompters at work. When she realized she was having symptoms similar to her mother, she made an appointment with her doctor.

    “He said, ‘I’m so sorry I have to tell you this because I know that you’re going through a lot with your mom, but you have a brain tumor. It’s called a meningioma, and you need to schedule an appointment with a neurosurgeon right away,’” Menounos said. “And so, I was like, ‘OK.’ I started kind of chuckling because at that point it’s like, ‘This is a joke. How does this happen?'”

    Menounos kept the diagnosis a secret from friends and family, not telling them until three days before her own surgery.

    “It’s like you’re getting a punch in the face, or a hammer,” Litsa Menounos said of her reaction. “You cannot process that. That was the worst thing for me. [My cancer] didn’t matter, honestly.”

    Menounos’ tumor was benign and now that she is back on her feet, the mother and daughter are focused on Litsa’s health.

    “I just hope that we can make her one of the long-term survivors because I’m worried about her,” Menounos said through tears. “Nobody ever wants to lose their mom. I pray this next MRI is good so that we can all just take a breath, and I have some time to not worry.”

    “This is a scary and upsetting situation for anyone to go through, but Hilary is thankful that her family, her staff, her home and her pets are all safe,” Duff’s rep told E!

    Duff was vacationing in Canada with her son, Luca, 5, when the home was broken into.

    According to TMZ, thieves stole thousands of dollars worth of jewelry. The tabloid reported the thieves broke into the home through a door and cited police sources, who said an alarm in the home never went off.

    Police confirmed to E! News that other homes in her neighborhood were also burglarized.

    Duff joins a long list of celebrities who have been victims of home robberies. Scott Disick, Michael B. Jordan and Ronda Rousey have all been victims of recent home invasions.

    The remembrance, written as a letter to Bennington, was posted to the band’s social media pages on Monday morning.

    “You touched so many lives, maybe even more than you realized,” the letter said. “Your absence leaves a void that can never be filled—a boisterous, funny, ambitious, creative, kind, generous voice in the room is missing.”

    Bennington was found in dead of an apparent suicide in his home near Los Angeles last week, The Associated Press reported.

    The band said it’s still trying to come to terms with its grief.

    “We’re trying to remind ourselves that the demons who took you away from us were always part of the deal. After all, it was the way you sang about those demons that made everyone fall in love with you in the first place,” the statement from Linkin Park said. “You fearlessly put them on display, and in doing so, brought us together and taught us to be more human. You had the biggest heart, and managed to wear it on your sleeve.”

    Linkin Park canceled its upcoming tour, meant to kick off July 27 in support of the band’s new album, “One More Light.”
