Elizabeth Shatner: 5 Things To Know About William Shatner’s Wife As He Files For Divorce

After 18 years, it’s over between William Shatner and his wife, Elizabeth Shatner. Here’s five fast facts you should know about the horseback rider, who married the actor in 2001.

William Shatner, 88, and his wife of 18 years, Elizabeth Shatner, 59, are calling it quits. The Star Trek legend, 88, filed divorce documents on December 10, ending his fourth marriage, according to TMZ. The soon-to-be exes, who married in 2001, reportedly had a prenup, and neither party will seek spousal support per the agreement, the outlet reports; the actor is worth $100 million. The couple don’t have any kids, and the divorce process is apparently “running smoothly.” It’s unclear why the actor filed for divorce. In the meantime, find out more about Elizabeth, who’s not an actress like her husband, but famed in her own field.

1. William Shatner is her second husband. This wasn’t Elizabeth’s first marriage. She married husband Michael Gleen Martin in 1983; he passed away in August 1997. She met William two years later and began a romance, ultimately marrying in 2001. Elizabeth is actually the actor’s fourth wife. He was previously married to Gloria Rand, Marcy Lafferty, and Nerine Kidd. He has four children from his previous relationships: Melanie, 55, Lisabeth, Leslie, 61, and Daniel Shatner.

2. She’s a famed horsewoman. Elizabeth is a passionate horseback rider and instructor who’s won awards for her work in the field. She started riding at the age of five, and started teaching horseback riding at 14, while also judging Indiana Arabian Club competition. She went on to win several awards, as well as a prestigious scholarship. Eventually, she became a professional horse trainer, and got a degree from Perdue University in equine and animal science.

3. She’s a photographer and digital artist. Elizabeth is a talented artist who calls her digital and photography work “Flowrosophy.” As she explains on the site for her Art By Nature business, ” A photo safari trip in Israel was the spark that ignited her passion for art and photography. She discovered that the image of something as simple as a flower opened the mind’s eye to the beauty and the messages sometimes hidden in nature. There is a healing synergy in the combination of light and color present in nature, especially flowers.”

4. She’s a philanthropist. Elizabeth and William run a charity show together called Hollywood Charity Horse Show. Proceeds from the annual event go toward helping children in need. She also founded the All Glory Project, “a non-profit campaign of consciousness to thank our wounded heroes, human and animal alike, as well as their families.”

5. She’s appeared in documentaries with her husband, and wrote one of his most famous songs. Elizabeth was featured in a 2002 episode of E! True Hollywood Story, and later appeared in films likeLife Beyond Trek: William Shatner in 2004, Gonzo Ballet in 2009, and The Shatner Project in 2014. She also co-wrote the song “Together” on William’s album, Has Been.

Jordyn Woods Takes Polygraph, Answers Once and For All: Did She Sleep with Tristan Thompson?

It may have been the celebrity gossip story of 2019.

So it’s only fitting that we close the year by revising it, right?

We write, of course, about Tristan Thompson cheating on Khloe Kardashian for THE SECOND TIME this spring — and not by kissing some random groupie, either.

Thompson made out with Kylie Jenner’s best friend, and Khloe’s close pal, Jordyn Woods, toward the end of a gathering the basketball player hosted at his house.

It’s still sort of unbelievable that he would do such a thing, you know?

And that Woods would be willing to swap spit with Thompson as well, of course.

For her part, Woods has taken some responsibility for her actions… but has also mostly blamed Tristan for what transpired between them many months ago.

Now, nearly a year after the misguided game of tonsil hockey, the Jordyn-Tristan kiss is back in the news because Jada Pinkett Smith has released footage of Woods taking a lie detector test on the actress’ Facebook Watch show, Red Table Talk.

As you may recall, Woods appeared on this program not long after the scandal broke.

She admitted to smooching Tristan on the lips back in February during this interview, and then said she immediately left the party and felt badly about what happened.

Woods also emphasized at the time that she did NOT sleep with Tristan.

Now, Pinkett Smith has confirmed that Woods actually took a polygraph back on March 1 when she appeared on the star’s talk show.

“Jordyn did take a lie detector test … it was Jordyn’s request,” Pinkett Smith said this week, adding:

“It was her request to be here, and it was her request to take the lie detector test. We had a forensic polygraphist with more than 25 years of experience in criminal and civil investigations.”

Why didn’t it air at the time?

“It wasn’t for this show — it was for [Woods] and for people that she loves,” Jada says.

Jordyn, as you can see below, is strapped in to the machine on the episode, sitting across from an expert in the field.

“I just want everyone to know that I’m telling the truth,” she tells this person when asked what she hopes to get out of the test. “That’s the most important part of the story to me, is the truth.”

The ccertified polygraphist then asks Woods three questions:

“Are you now in the state of California?”; “Are you currently sitting down?”; and “Did you have sexual intercourse with Tristan Thompson?”

Woods responds yes to the first two, and no to the third.

So… what were the results?!?

“I thought you did a fantastic job,” polygraphist tells Woods after concluding the test. “You definitely passed, and I believe you’re being truthful in the test.”

“She passed with flying colors,” Pinkett Smith adds. “There’s always more to the story, so you’ve got to be careful how you judge, no matter what you hear and no matter what’s out there.”

Our truth be told, we always believed Woods in this context.

It was widely accepted awhile back that she and Thompson did not engaged in any kind of intercourse.

This actually may explain the most stunning part of this whole saga, which is the following:

Khloe and Tristan are allegedly back together!

If you’ll excuse us now, we need to go get a band-aid for our foreheads.

Because it’s bleeding pretty profusely after we slapped it very hard upon reading that news.

Britt McHenry Sues Fox News, Tyrus Over Sexual Harassment

Britt McHenry is calling Fox News a “sanctuary for sexual harassers” in a new lawsuit she’s filed against the network and her former “Un-PC” cohost, Tyrus.

In the lawsuit, Britt says the only “zero tolerance” Fox News is demonstrating is for her … the woman who’s complained 4 times about sexual harassment — an obvious jab at the network saying it doesn’t allow any sexual harassment.

According to docs, obtained by TMZ, Britt claims the network refused to investigate some of her claims, shunned her, shut her out of company events and refused to allow her to appear as a guest on other Fox News shows.

She claims the retaliation is a result of her blowing the whistle on Tyrus — a former pro wrestler — who she claims crudely sexually harassed her in 2018 with text messages that included threats of a d**k pic, and comments about her butt and legs.

She also claims she complained to HR and management but instead of putting the kibosh on Tyrus, they retaliated against her and gave Tyrus his own show. In the suit, she says Fox never disciplined Tyrus because he showed investigators photos and texts of her cleavage and nearly bare breast.

The messages made it seem like Britt and Tyurs were both flirting with each other — but she claims, in the suit, the pics and texts were doctored and not really her.

As we first reported … Britt filed a sexual harassment complaint with New York State’s Division of Human Rights.

In the suit, Britt says even after payouts of over $100 million in recent sexual harassment scandals, “Fox News remains a sanctuary for sexual harassers, coddling and enabling the men who abuse female employees.”

We’ve reached out to Fox News and Tyrus … so far no word back.

Bill Cosby loses appeal in sex assault case that landed him in prison

A Pennsylvania judge did not err in allowing five women to take the stand against Bill Cosby to prove he was a serial sexual predator, an appeals court ruled Tuesday.

The unanimous Superior Court ruling upholds Cosby’s 2018 conviction on three counts of aggravated indecent assault for drugging and molesting Temple University staffer Andrea Constand.

Lawyers for the 82-year-old appealed his conviction, arguing that Montgomery County Court of Common Pleas Judge Steven O’Neill flubbed a decision to allow five accusers — including supermodel Janice Dickinson — to testify at retrial about being abused by the entertainer.

Only one additional accuser testified about being drugged and assaulted by Cosby during his first trial, which ended in a hung jury.

Long beloved as “America’s Dad,” Cosby was the first celebrity to be tried and convicted in the wake of the #MeToo era, and whose trial featured testimony regarding crimes with which he was not charged.

Prosecutors trying disgraced media mogul Harvey Weinstein also plan to call additional accusers, in an attempt to prove the conduct was part of a pattern.

The Pennsylvania Superior Court ruled that the testimony from additional accusers showed that Cosby exhibited a “signature” pattern of drugging and sexually assaulting his victims, as O’Neill found.

The former Pudding Pop pitchman is currently serving a three- to 10-year sentence, and maintains his innocence. He’s repeatedly likened himself to a political prisoner, and says he has no remorse.

Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele lauded the decision, and celebrated Constand for her bravery in the face of continued litigation.

“First and foremost, it is my hope that with this last guaranteed step in the criminal justice process now complete, the victim in this case, Andrea Constand, can finally put this assault behind her and move on with her life as the strong survivor she is,” Steele said in a statement.

“Her bravery in coming forward when she did to report a sexual assault by a powerful, famous man led to the subsequent exposure of him as a serial predator and served as an example to other women, giving them the needed courage to step up and stand up against sexual assault. The world is forever changed because of Andrea’s bravery,” the DA said. “With this decision, it has been affirmed that no one is above the law.“

Under Pennsylvania law, Cosby’s lawyers can now ask if the Pennsylvania Supreme Court will hear their appeal.

Cosby’s spokesman Andrew Wyatt said the team would request the appeal and called the panel’s Tuesday decision “appalling and disappointing.”

“It shows the level of corruption that resides in the Judicial System of Pennsylvania,” Wyatt claimed. “We’re not shocked because it shows the world that this isn’t about justice, but this is a political scheme to destroy America’s Dad, however they will not stop us and we will prevail in the State Supreme Court. Mr. Cosby remains hopeful and he stands behind his innocence.”

Ryan Reynolds breaks silence on terrifying stage barrier collapse

Ryan Reynolds has spoken out about the terrifying moment a stage barrier collapsed almost crushing him at Comic-Con in Brazil last weekend.

Footage showed the Deadpool actor jumping off the stage at the event in Sao Paolo on Saturday to get closer to fans in the audience while promoting his new movie Free Guy.

But moments later, the barrier separating him from the large crowd suddenly gave way, throwing some fans to the floor and prompting Ryan to jump backwards.

Recalling what happened, Ryan told Entertainment Tonight on Monday: ‘Well, ordinance collapsed and that was a little, I think it looked worse than it was.

‘All I was worried about were the people that were – what you could tell is that they were falling, like, “Oh, they’re gonna be fine”, and it’s like, “Oh, but that leg is gonna go”, so I jumped out. But it was, yeah, everyone was fine.’

Sounds like a very close call.

Ryan’s wife Blake Lively might be telling him ‘I told you so’ as he reveals she gave him one piece of advice – or more, a warning – before he flew out to the event.

‘My only job that Blake said as I was leaving was, “Just come home in one piece”,’ he said.

‘So that was my only job.’

Lucky you did, Ry.

There’s a huge buzz at the moment about Ryan’s new movie Free Guy, which sees him star as Guy, a NPC (non-player character), who is desperate for a break in his monotonous life. He then sort of gets what he wishes for after discovering that he’s actually caught up inside a brutal video game.

It also stars Killing Eve actress Jodie Comer, Stranger Things actor Joe Keery and Magic Mike star Channing Tatum, while Taika Watiti appears to be playing the villain.

After the trailer dropped, Free Guy earned comparisons to video game Grand Theft Auto Online due to the running animations, constant destruction and violence.

Free Guy is set to hit UK cinemas on 1 July 2020.

Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson Get Back Together – Find Out Why She Keeps It Secret

This arrives after it was revealed on ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ that the Cleveland Cavaliers star gifted her a diamond necklace with the help from her best friend Malika and Khadijah Haqq.

AceShowbizKhloe Kardashian seemingly has forgiven Tristan Thompson after his cheating scandal. A new report suggests that the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star is getting back together with the basketball player, with whom she shares her first daughter True.

“Khloe and Tristan are 100 percent back together,” a source revealed to Radar Online. The source added that the pair, who broke up in early 2019 after he was caught kissing Kylie Jenner‘s best friend Jordyn Woods, are spending time together often recently.

“He spends the night there frequently when he is in town,” the insider continued spilling about the Cleveland Cavaliers star, who travels the country for work.

However, it was said that Khloe didn’t want everyone to know about their alleged reconciliation. “It’s a secret because she knows how much everyone would judge her,” the source shared. “But she loves him despite how sh***y he treated her.”

This arrives after it was revealed on “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” that Tristan gifted her a diamond necklace with the help from her best friend Malika and Khadijah Haqq. “Tristan reached out to see if we would help give Khloe this gift,” Malika explained. “I think Khloe’s priority is to have peace in her relationship with Tristan, and if this is one step of him showing her that he wants her to feel better…I think it’s good!”

That was not the only expensive gift that Tristan gave her, apparently. Khloe told Scott Disick that Tristan gave her a promise ring as an early birthday gift. She said, “I’m like, ‘I don’t want a present from you. He’s like…’please!’ And then he gives me a card and he’s like, ‘I hope you accept this ring?’ I’m like, ‘NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!’ And he’s like. ‘It’s a promise ring.’ I’m like, ‘I really appreciate it, but I don’t think I can accept it.’ He’s like, ‘Just think about it.’ “

While Scott pointed out that the jewelry “looks fully like an engagement ring,” Khloe told him that it was the card that she’d “been waiting for forever.” She went on sharing, “It’s the nicest, longest card in his bad handwriting, which is what I wanted — just something tangible I could keep. I go, this is a beautiful new you I’m seeing. I just don’t want there to be any blurred lines.”
