Days after Walt Disney World reopened in Orlando, Florida, Hong Kong Disneyland is shutting down once again after a recent spike in coronavirus cases.
“As required by the government and health authorities in line with prevention efforts taking place across Hong Kong, Hong Kong Disneyland park will temporarily close from July 15,” a Disney spokeswoman said in a statement on Monday, according to multiple reports.
Disney’s Hong Kong park initially closed its doors on Jan. 26 as COVID-19 cases began to surge in Asia, and reopened on June 18. However, after recently reporting 52 new cases, the Chinese-governed territory will shutter the park once again, along with gyms, mahjong parlors and cinemas.
Despite Florida’s status as a worldwide hot spot for new coronavirus cases, plans to reopen Walt Disney World went ahead as planned over the weekend. “We had an amazing morning with the Cast before reopening the park today,” shared Disney Parks chairman Josh D’Amaro on Instagram. “I’ve missed you all. So happy to be together again.”
However, with California under stricter COVID-related restrictions, Disneyland announced late last month that it would be delaying its planned July 17 reopening.
“Given the time required for us to bring thousands of cast members back to work and restart our business, we have no choice but to delay the reopening of our theme parks and resort hotels until we receive approval from government officials,” read a statement from Disneyland Resorts at the time. “Once we have a clearer understanding of when guidelines will be released, we expect to be able to communicate a reopening date.”

The fashion world is stepping up in a time of need: Countless companies are now making, selling and donating non-medical grade face masks for daily protection from COVID-19.
Demand for cloth face mask options has soared in recent months, in part because the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now recommends wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) masks in public settings to help slow the spread of COVID-19. PPE masks are usually made from breathable a fabric like cotton and differ from a surgical mask and N95 respirators that experts say should be reserved for health care workers who are caring for the sick.
In times of crisis, it’s heartwarming to see companies we love giving back using the tools and skills they know best. Nordstrom, the largest employer of tailors in the country, has trained its alterations teams to make face masks to distribute to health care workers, while designer Christian Siriano’s small team of couture sewers is making 2,000 cloth face coverings per day. Dior has similarly pivoted to making face masks for those on the front lines in France. Burberry is using its global supply chain network to fast-track the delivery of 100,000 surgical face masks to the U.K. National Health Service’s medical staff, and Prada began the production of face masks and medical overalls at its factory in Italy.
And lots of brands are selling directly to consumers — including some that donate face masks to health care workers and others in need with every purchase — or offering a free mask with every purchase, like Frankies Bikinis. New to wearing face masks? The CDC guidelines recommends washing your face mask regularly (with detergent, in the washing machine); not touching your eyes, nose or mouth when removing them; and washing your hands or using hand sanitizer immediately after taking your face mask off.
Below are just a few of the companies that are producing and selling adult-size non-medical face masks to help fight the global pandemic (see face masks made specifically for kids here). Due to high demand, product supply may be low or sold out and shipping might be delayed — popular brands like Forever 21 and Banana Republic are currently sold out of their face masks. We’re updating this story frequently to keep you up to date.

Naya Rivera’s loved ones are paying tribute to the late actress and sending their condolences after her tragic death.
Rivera was pronounced dead on Monday, as her body was discovered following a five-day search. She was reported missing last Wednesday after she took a boat ride with her 4-year-old son, Josey, in Lake Piru in the Los Padres National Forest in Ventura County, California. The Sheriff’s Department told NBCLA that Rivera and her son rented a boat at around 1 p.m. but approximately three hours later, another boater discovered Josey in the boat by himself. TMZ reported that Josey told authorities that his mother went into the water for a swim, but never returned to the boat.
Rivera was just 33 years old. Both her famous friends and fans are speaking out about the tragedy, including her Glee co-stars.
Chris Colfer wrote, “How can you convey all your love and respect for someone in one post? How can you summarize a decade of friendship and laughter with words alone? If you were friends with Naya Rivera, you simply can’t. Her brilliance and humor were unmatched. Her beauty and talent were otherworldly. She spoke truth to power with poise and fearlessness. She could turn a bad day into a great day with a single remark. She inspired and uplifted people without even trying. Being close to her was both a badge of honor and a suit of armor. Naya was truly one of a kind, and she always will be.”
“💔Sending all my love to her wonderful family and her beautiful son,” he concluded.
“Rest sweet, Naya. What a force you were,” Jane Lynch tweeted. “Love and peace to your family.”
“My heart is broken,” Alex Newell wrote. “I truly had soo much fun filming this little segment… we both clearly didn’t wanna be there but made the most of it! Naya was truly a star.. one day as I was coming out of hair and make up I saw her sitting at base camp and she said “Alex… when you go on tour can you please say ‘everybody say heeeyy Ms. Newell’’ just for me!” I said absolutely we laughed and had a short little convo about life and music.. I’ll cherish that moment for ever!! I watched her preform with such power, brilliance, and honesty.. While being a light as a person! The love she had for her family and friends was always clear! She will truly be missed! Josey you are loved by all the people who love your mother! My thoughts and prayers are with her family! Rest Sweet Angel.”
Kristin Chenoweth shared a photo of Naya and her son, writing, “Thank you for what you gave the world. I love you.”
Becca Tobin wrote, “Naya was insanely talented, breathtakingly gorgeous, and one of the wittiest people I’ve ever met, but the legacy she left behind for me is her kindness. I joined the cast of Glee in the third season and as the newcomer, I was intimidated and terrified. The cast was already such a tight-knit group who had been working incredibly hard together for over three years to make it a hit show and I never expected any of them to have time for me. To my surprise, Naya, one of the most beloved by the rest of the cast (and the entire world), showed me instant warmth and kindness. She invited me to parties and gatherings and was always there to give advice. She was a superstar who had nothing to gain from being kind to the new girl, but she was and that changed this new girl’s entire experience on that show. I will forever be grateful to that beautiful human. My heart goes out to her family and her sweet boy. ❤️.”
Kevin McHale shared an emotional tribute, alongside a photo of himself and Rivera smiling and standing side by side. “My Naya, my Snixxx, my Bee. I legitimately can not imagine this world without you,” McHale wrote. “7 years ago today, she and I were together in London when we found out about Cory. We were so far away, but I was so thankful that we had each other. A week ago today we were talking about running away to Hawaii. This doesn’t make sense. And I know it probably never will.”
“She was so independent and strong and the idea of her not being here is something I cannot comprehend. She was the single most quick-witted person I’ve ever met, with a steel-trap memory that could recall the most forgettable conversations from a decade ago verbatim. The amount of times she would memorize all of those crazy monologues on Glee the morning of and would never ever mess up during the scene… I mean, she was clearly more talented than the rest of us,” McHale’s tribute continued, in part. “She was the most talented person I’ve ever known. There is nothing she couldn’t do and I’m furious we won’t get to see more.”

Back in September 2016, Rivera sat down with ET to discuss her memoir — Sorry Not Sorry: Dreams, Mistakes, and Growing Up — and candidly talked about a few of her deeply personal life experiences.

Demi Lovato Reminisces on Playing Naya Rivera’s Girlfriend on ‘Glee’: ‘I’ll Forever Cherish the Opportunity’
Demi Lovato is paying tribute to Naya Rivera. The “I Love Me” singer took to Instagram on Monday to share her memories of the late actress.
“RIP Naya Rivera. I’ll forever cherish the opportunity to play your girlfriend on Glee,” Lovato wrote, alongside a slideshow of photos from their time together on the Fox dramedy. “The character you played was groundbreaking for tons of closeted queer girls (like me at the time) and open queer girls, and your ambition and accomplishments were inspiring to Latina women all over the world.”
Lovato was a recurring guest star during the fifth season of Glee, in which she played Dani, who has a short-lived romantic relationship with Rivera’s Santana Lopez.
“My heart goes out to your loved ones at this time.. ❤️” Lovato concluded.
Rivera was pronounced dead on Monday, at the age of 33, as her body was discovered after a five-day search.
She was reported missing last Wednesday after she took a boat ride with her 4-year-old son, Josey, in Lake Piru in the Los Padres National Forest in Ventura County, California.
Following her disappearance and death, friends, family and former co-stars have been paying tribute with heartfelt memorials, remembering Rivera’s life and legacy. See the video below for more on the outpouring of condolences.
Empirestar Bryshere Gray has been arrested and booked on assault charges after an alleged domestic dispute with his wife. Police in Goodyear, Arizona, confirmed in a press release that they responded to a 911 call Sunday night from an adult female, who said she had been assaulted by her husband, whom she identified as Gray. She was treated for non-life-threatening injuries at a nearby hospital and later released.
SWAT and crisis negotiation teams were reportedly called out to assist when Gray refused to respond to officers’ requests to come outside. He was taken into custody just after 7 a.m. local time Monday morning. The Goodyear Police Department later shared his mugshot on its social media accounts.
Gray was booked into Maricopa County Jail on a domestic violence charge of aggravated assault, as well as two additional charges for assault and disorderly conduct.
The 27-year-old actor and rapper isn’t the only Empire cast member to face legal troubles in recent years. His onscreen father, Terrence Howard, spoke out on Twitter in 2017 about multiple allegations of abuse from his ex-wives and girlfriends, denying ever being “abusive to anyone in my entire life,” and sharing, “having an altercation is very different than abuse.”
In February, Gray’s onscreen brother, Jussie Smollett, pleaded not guilty to six counts of disorderly conduct for allegedly lying to police about being the victim of a hate crime. Chicago police claim that Smollett — who is openly gay — paid two brothers to stage an anti-gay and racist attack against him Jan. 29, 2019. Smollett’s attorneys are seeking to have the charges dismissed on double jeopardy grounds, as previous disorderly conduct charges against him were abruptly dropped last March.
See how creator Lee Daniels said Smollett’s legal troubles affected the Empire cast in the video below.
Engagement on board! Below Deck Sailing Yacht stars Ciara Duggan and Paget Berry are “finally” engaged. The couple announced the happy news on social media Thursday.
The two shared a slideshow featuring a video of the Italy proposal and photos, including a romantic snap of them sharing a kiss before popping open a celebratory bottle of G.H. Mumm bubbly. And, naturally, the toast appeared to go down on a boat!
The proposal video showed Duggan looking confused about why Berry was filming her as she sat in front of a fountain. “What are you doing? You’re recording,” she said.
She then appeared stunned as Berry crouched down next to her and presented a ring.
“Are you serious,” Duggan can be heard saying twice in the clip.
Berry also turned to the camera to note the ring he was using was “for show.”
“Well folks, it finally happened 🥰💍,” Duggan captioned the slideshow, which also featured a photo of the gemstone-encrusted ring.
Berry also posted about the proposal, writing, “I did a thing 🙈 💍 @liveandsetsail ❤️ #engaged.”
“So excited for you guys!!!” series co-star Jenna MacGillivray commented on the post. “You deserve all the love in the world.”
The couple have since been sailing around St. Tropez, with Duggan sharing video clips from their adventures on her Instagram stories on Monday.

Princess Love and Ray J are working it out. The 35-year-old reality star filed for a dismissal of her divorce from Ray J on July 6, ET confirms. ET has reached out to reps for Princess and Ray J for comment.
The news comes two months after Princess initially filed for divorce from Ray J after four years of marriage. The couple welcomed their second child together, son Epik Ray Norwood, on Dec. 30. They also share 2-year-old daughter Melody Love.
Last November, while pregnant with Epik, Princess told followers that she didn’t “want to be married anymore.” “I don’t have time for this. This is not love. And I’m done,” she said on Instagram, following her and Ray J’s drama over him allegedly leaving her stranded in Las Vegas.
Princess alleged at the time that Ray J left her and Melody stranded in Vegas following BET’s Soul Train Awards. Ray J, at the time, denied her claims in a video in which he slammed her for taking their argument to social media.
Then, Princess took to Instagram Live to tell her side of the story. The reality star claimed that she found an extra phone Ray J had, and that when she confronted him about it, he admitted that he had been “entertaining some women.” She said they were able to put it behind them, but then when she accompanied him to the Soul Train Awards, he asked her to move to Las Vegas and she refused. She claimed that that’s when the two got into a huge argument and he left her and stayed out all night. The next day, she said they got into another argument, and she accused Ray J of continuously threatening her with divorce whenever they argued.
A source told ET at the time that Princess was “fed up” and had been telling close friends and family that she was considering filing for divorce.
Despite their ups and downs, Ray J and Princess appeared to be on good terms lately. The singer gushed over how much Epik looked like Princess in a sweet Instagram video on Saturday.

Four people have been charged in the February shooting death of rapper Pop Smoke, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced Monday. Pop Smoke, whose real name is Bashar Barakah Jackson, was killed at a home in the Hollywood Hills during a robbery, according to the DA’s office.
Corey Walker, 19, and Keandre Rodgers, 18, have each been charged with murder with a special circumstance allegation, which would make them eligible for the death penalty if convicted. The special circumstance alleges the murder was committed “during the commission of a robbery and a burglary,” the DA’s office said. The complaint also makes gang and gun allegations.
Two minors, ages 17 and 15, have also been charged with one count each of murder and and robbery in juvenile court. The two minors have not been identified.
A fifth person had been arrested Thursday in connection with Jackson’s death. It is unclear if that person will also be facing charges.
Jackson, 20, was shot around 4 a.m. on Feb. 19 inside a rental home in the Hollywood Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles. City police officers found him with several gunshot wounds after responding to a 911 call. Jackson was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he later died.
Jackson’s debut album, Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon, was posthumously released July 3. The album features an array of popular artists, including 50 Cent, Roddy Ricch, Quavo, Tyga and Karol G.
The Los Angeles Police Department is still investigating the case.

Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews are leaving Dancing With the Stars as hosts. The longtime host took to Twitter on Monday to reveal that the show would be returning for a 29th season, but he would be not returning as host.
“Just informed @DancingABC will be continuing without me,” Bergeron wrote. “It’s been an incredible 15 year run and the most unexpected gift of my career.”
Bergeron added, “I’m grateful for that and for the lifelong friendships made. That said, now what am I supposed to do with all of these glitter masks?”
ABC and BBC Studios released a joint statement to ET confirming the news, and revealed that Andrews, his longtime co-host, will also be leaving the show.
“Tom Bergeron will forever be part of the Dancing with the Stars family. As we embark on a new creative direction, he departs the show with our sincerest thanks and gratitude for his trademark wit and charm that helped make this show a success,” the statement explained. “Erin will also not be returning, and we appreciate all that she brought to the ballroom. Fans have been rooting for her since she originally competed as a contestant back in 2010, and her signature sense of humor has become a hallmark of the show.”
The news came as a shock to fans, as Bergeron has been the host of Dancing With the Stars since its premiere in June 2005.
Bergeron publicly clashed with the show’s producers ahead of the most recent season of DWTS, when he took to Twitter to share his disappointment at the casting of Sean Spicer.
“A few months ago, during a lunch with DWTS‘ new executive producer, I offered suggestions for season 28. Chief among them was my hope that DWTS, in its return from an unprecedented year-long hiatus, would be a joyful respite from our exhausting political climate and free of inevitably divisive bookings from any party affiliation,” Bergeron wrote at the time. “I left that lunch convinced we were in agreement.”
Referring to Spicer joining the cast, Bergeron added, “Subsequently (and rather obviously), a decision was made to, as we often say in Hollywood, ‘go a different direction…. We can all agree to disagree. As we do now, but ultimately it’s their call. I’ll leave it to them to answer any further questions about those decisions.”
After season 28 concluded — with Bachelorette star Hannah Brown and her pro partner Alan Bersten taking home the Mirrorball trophy — Bergeron appeared as a costumed contestant on the third season of Fox’s The Masked Singer.
