**Ladies, get ready…Kylie Cosmetics is coming to Houston!

Houston’s Topshop is one of seven stores across the nation to host Kylie Jenner’s Kylie Cosmetics pop-up shop, starting Nov. 20. Topshop’s office manager said the store is expected to be open at regular times, which are from 10 a.m to 9 p.m. She said the times could change based on the Galleria’s security team. The store will continue to carry the product until it runs out — which could happen in hours based on prior pop-up shops.

Kylie Cosmetics are only available for purchase online and usually sell out within minutes after relaunching to the site. In the past, Jenner showed up to her pop-up shops to surprise fans, but there’s no word on if Kylie, or her boyfriend and rumored baby daddy, Travis Scott will make a surprise visit.


**Blake Shelton might have made a name for himself as a judge on The Voice, but he’s got another title now: People Magazine’s 2017 Sexiest Man Alive.

“That y’all must be running out of people,” he told PEOPLE in this week’s cover story.

All kidding aside, Shelton credits his girlfriend of two years, Gwen Stefani, for convincing him to embrace the crown. “She goes, ‘Listen to me, you’re going to regret this for the rest of your life if you don’t take this gift and just live in the moment.”

But a bigger incentive for the singer was being able to stick it to his fellow judge (and 2013 Sexiest Man Alive) Adam Levine. “I can’t wait to shove this up Adam’s a**,” Shelton adds. “As proud as I am and honored that you guys asked me, that’s really the only thing I care about.”


**It’s been 25 years since the release of “Home Alone 2: Lost in New York.” To celebrate, the Plaza Hotel, which plays a prominent role in the film, is offering a package that allows guests to live it up like Kevin McAllister.

Rates start at $895, only slightly less than the $967 Kevin spent on room service during his stay. “In-room and throughout the hotel a variety of experiences inspired by Kevin’s time over the holiday’s here at The Plaza will come to life for guests to enjoy,” according to the hotel’s website. “Beyond the in-room experience, guests are invited to dine in the Todd English Food Hall to taste-test a 90s inspired menu with upscale versions of childhood favorites, or to head over to the interactive photo-experience where they’ll find themselves in Kevin’s New York journey.”
Included in the package is an “over-the-top” ice cream sundae from room service, just like the one Kevin had in the film.

The hotel concierge will also arrange for guests to experience quintessential New York sights, like the Empire State Building, Wollman Rink and a limo trip through the city.

**Taylor Swift‘s latest album “Reputation” has gone and done it…she sold over a million copies since it was released four days ago, according to Nielsen Music. To be exact, the album had sold 1,050,000 copies by the end of business Monday.

Reputation” is Swift’s fourth consecutive album to sell more than a million copies in its first week. Other big debuts include 2014’s “1989,” 2012’s “Red,” and 2010’s “Speak Now.”
Taylor is the only artist to have four different albums sell more than a million copies in a week since Nielsen Music started tracking album sales in 1991.

While Swift’s numbers are impressive, she still doesn’t come near the biggest debut in music history: Adele‘s “25” sold 2.3 million copies in its first three days before ending its first week with 3.3 million copies sold in 2015.


**The Katy Buc-ee’s will be recognized by Guinness World Records for its 255-foot-long car wash on Thursday. Buc-ee’s officials said it will offer free car washes to celebrate.

The car wash is part of the new Buc-ee’s 56,000-square-foot store that opened in September at Katy Freeway and Cane Island Parkway.

Buc-ees officials said it also operates the largest convenience store in the world, located in New Braunfels, Texas. The New Braunfels Travel Center covers 68,000 square feet and features 120 fueling positions, 83 toilets, 31 cash registers four Icee machines, as well as 80 fountain dispensers.

**Netflix put out the results of a survey where 37% of viewers have admitted to watching Netflix at work . . . and 12% say that they’ve watched while in PUBLIC BATHROOMS. That’s about 13 million, by the way.

According to a survey of 37,000 subscribers in 22 countries, 67% of viewers download and watch their shows on the move. Downloading, unlike streaming, allows you to watch something later without an Internet or WiFi connection. But people aren’t only watching during their down-time. For example, 37% have admitted to watching at work.

There were some other fascinating revelations: 22% said they’d cried while watching Netflix in public . . . and 12% admitted to Netflixing in PUBLIC BATHROOMS.

There are roughly 109 million Netflix subscribers worldwide, so if 12% of people have done this, that means 13 million people have, which is astonishing.

In a recent interview, Corinne revealed that after being eliminated from Nick Viall’s 21st season, she came home and rekindled her romance with a longtime boyfriend.

“The doctors, upon examination, detected that I had suffered a hemorrhage on my right vocal cord.
