Selena Gomez's Swimsuit Sonata, Betty White's Employee Drama, and Much, Much More

Here's what's happening out there:

• The other day on Instagram, Selena Gomez shared a throwback photo from "a sweet, small house" in her home state of Texas, where it appears as if she frequently enjoyed tickling the ivories in nothing but her bikini and a pair of weathered boots. You know, just like all Texans do!

• Speaking of Texans who model bikinis, we recently caught up with Sports Illustrated swimsuit siren Hannah Ferguson. Watch the video below to learn about her early career in Dallas (or click here for more of our exclusive videos), then think about relocating to the Lone Star State. Life (and clothing choices) just seem so much simpler.

• In an interview with Into the Gloss, Gwyneth Paltrow came off as kinda relatable after admitting that she's "not very good at putting on makeup." But being Gwyneth Paltrow, she immediately ruined any relatability by explaining how someone else has been applying her makeup "for 20-plus years." Still, it was nice while it lasted.

• Renee Zellweger appeared on Wednesday's episode of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" to debut the first trailer for "Bridget Jones' Baby" (below), which once again sees Bridget involved in a love triangle with two handsome, supportive, well-to-do men. (Alas! The never-ending problems of the average single gal!)

• According to Us Weekly, country singer Miranda Lambert has already been introduced to boyfriend Anderson East's parents and "everyone got along" famously. In related news, your in-laws — whom you've met and tried to bond with hundreds of times — still seem hate your guts.

• Betty White is reportedly being sued by her former live-in employee Anita Maynard, who claims she was denied overtime pay and proper breaks while working for the 94-year-old actress. So with that in mind, we now have a much better understanding of why Coco, the former live-in employee of "The Golden Girls," had disappeared after just one episode:

• Less than two years after marrying a man who looks eerily like her late father Kurt Cobain, Frances Bean Cobain has filed for divorce from husband Isaiah Silva. As it turns out, maybe it's not the best idea to marry a man who modeled his look after the troubled dad you never really got to know. You learn somethin' new every day.

• Lionsgate has released the first trailer for Mark Wahlberg's new film "Deepwater Horizon," which tells the real-life story of the Deepwater Horizon drilling incident of 2010 (below). Somehow, though, we fully expect this particular retelling to end with Mark Wahlberg punching the oil spill into submission:

• And finally, in sadder news: Ken Howard, the actor who portrayed Coach Reeves on "The White Shadow" and served as the president of the SAG-AFTRA actors' union, passed away on Wednesday of undisclosed causes. He was 71.
