We're not sure these girls will EVER make peace.

On Monday, Kendra Wilkinson took to Twitter to tease an interesting reunion on her reality show, Kendra On Top, and encouraged her two-and-a-half million followers to guess who she met up with, writing:

Our hearts just grew three sizes!

On Wednesday during Illumination Entertainment's CinemaCon presentation in Las Vegas, the studio showed off some footage from their upcoming movies and made a pretty big announcement — Benedict Cumberbatch will be the new Grinch!

That's right, the studio is making an animated version of the classic Dr. Seuss children's book How the Grinch Stole Christmas and the Sherlock actor will be voicing the iconic green meanie!

The film, which will simply be titled The Grinch, will be produced by the same studio that made Despicable Me and Minions and is set to be released November 10, 2017.

Of course the last person to play the curmudgeonly character was Jim Carrey in the 2000 Ron Howard-directed live action version. Not only was the film a success, scoring $345 million worldwide, but it also won an Oscar for Best Makeup.

What do you think about Benedict voicing the Grinch?!

Tuesday is an incredibly special day for the famous author Beverly Cleary as she turns 100!

The witty writer was first published in 1955 and is probably best known for creating characters like Ramona Quimby and Ralph S. Mouse, as well as award-winning works like Dear Mr. Henshaw and Socks.

Cleary may be a century old now, but she's still celebrating at her retirement home with some carrot cake with friends while they watch Discovering Beverly Cleary: An Oregon Art Beat, a new doc that explores her Oregon roots.

While the birthday girl doesn't write anymore, she did admit "it's important for writers to know when to quit," as she reflected on her writing and how she hated typing saying:

"I even got rid of my typewriter. It was a nice one but I hate to type. When I started writing I found that I was thinking more about my typing than what I was going to say, so I wrote it long hand."

As for aging, she says she has "a few aches and pains" and jokes she didn't turn 100 "on purpose." LOLz!

With so many AH-Mazing books though, it's hard to pick which one we like best. Vote and let us know which Cleary book is your favorite (below)!

Bobby Brown

Bobby Brown is set to release a tell-all memoir covering his successful R&B career, and of course the tragic passings of Whitney Houston and their daughter Bobbi Kristina.

The book titled Every Little Step will be released this June — just weeks before the one year anniversary of B.K.'s tragic death at the age of 22.

The 47-year-old told ABC News on Friday:

"Writing this book has been a therapeutic process for me. Getting it all out has allowed me to move on with my life."

In addition to sharing stories about his life and career in the memoir, Bobby will also sit down for an at-length interview with Robin Roberts for a special edition of 20/20 — also set to air in June.

While this is certainly a very touchy subject considering Bobbi's death is still under investigation, we are very curious to see what her father has to say.

Will U be picking up a copy, Perezcious readers?? SOUND OFF in the comments!

Can we just talk about how AH-mazing he's looking?!

Which makes it pretty fitting that his latest page turner is all about helping YOU find your personal style so you can feel confident, too! Just take this excerpt from Does This Book Make My Butt Look Big?:

"Do you treat yourself like you're worth it? It sounds so simple, yet so few women really follow that mantra when it comes to themselves. But here's the honest-to-mod truth: If you don't prioritize yourself in terms of grooming and style, you're not going to harness that powerful version of you, the woman capable of running the show at work, in your family, and in your community. And then everything will go south, sweetie, and we're not just talking about your derriere. The motto I live by is, 'All the world's a stage; make sure you have the right costume,' and that's much of what this book is about—finding it, claiming it, feeling your best self in it."

We're feeling inspired already!
