Morning Buzz! Will Smith and the Fresh Prince Family Reunited and It’ll Give You ALL the Warm Fuzzy ’90s Feels + More

A super-nostalgic TV reunion and a bonkers Beauty and the Beast theory lead this morning’s top news stories. Check those and more out below!


1. We are TOTALLY here for this. Alfonso Ribeiro — AKA Carlton Banks — posted the sweetest snap of the Fresh Prince of Bel Air fam, and it’s giving us major nostalgia for one of our fave TV families. “Always amazing to spend an afternoon with my Fresh Prince family,” Ribeiro wrote, before concluding things on a sadder note. “Wishing that James Avery was still with us to make this complete.” Us too — because even if Will Smith might actually be turning into Uncle Phil, it’s just not quite the same without the real deal.

2. Peta Murgatroyd is the picture of a working new mom as she pumps breast milk backstage at DWTS. Her hair and makeup might look full glam, but new mom Murgatroyd kept it pretty real in a behind-the-scenes snap from DWTS. “My milkshakes do not bring all the boys to the yard/trailer,” she captioned the pic of her using a breast pump before taking the stage to slay. “Oh the joys of motherhood!” Murgatroyd welcomed her first kid just three months ago and is a total champ, if you ask us.

3. Paris Jackson got the cutest bestie tattoo with none other than her big bro Prince. This isn’t the first time the famous siblings have bonded through getting inked together, but as far as we know, it’s their first matching tattoos. “Sometimes I feel like my big brother and I always think the same thoughts, he just doesn’t have a filter and always vocalizes them😂.” Paris captioned the photo of their Yin and Yang ankle tattoos. “Though total opposites, like my Gooko and I, the inseparable yin and yang work together finding and causing balance within each other. Matchies with my bestie!” Dying of cute.

4. The Cash Me Outside girl is getting her own reality show.TMZ is reporting that Danielle Bregoli, made famous by her defiant appearances on Dr. Phil, has signed a deal with a major TV production company. There aren’t many details on the show’s concept just yet, but we already know we’re totally gonna watch this.

5. People are losing their minds over this bonkers Beauty and the Beast theory that fills a huge plot hole. (Spoilers ahead, if you haven’t seen the movie!) The live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast has been a smash hit, but some people couldn’t help but notice that the people outside the castle didn’t seem to age either. Reddit user Hainted proposes that, “The village of Villaneuve is caught in the Enchantress’ curse as well. It’s stated outright that she erased the memories of the Prince, his lands, and servants from the villagers’ minds, but if you pay attention she also locked the village in a time loop.” Must. Rewatch. Immediately. (Photo via Mike Coppola/Getty)

6. Quote of the day: “Of course I know how to roll a joint.” Of course you do, Martha Stewart. Happy National Weed Appreciation Day!

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
