Busy Philipps took a flight to be with best friend Michelle Williams on the 10-year anniversary of Heath Ledger‘s death.

On Monday evening, Philipps, 38, shared a photo of her view of the sunset from an airplane with a red heart emoji. Then, hours later, she posted a follow-up selfie of her with Dawson’s Creek costar Williams.

“It’s ok,” Philipps wrote along with the picture that showed the All the Money in the World star, 37, with her eyes closed and leaning on her longtime confidant.

Ledger and Williams dated after meeting on the set of their 2005 film Brokeback Mountain and welcomed daughter Matilda in October 2005. They separated in September 2007.

A decade ago, Ledger was found dead from an accidental overdose in his New York apartment. He was 28.

A toxicology report revealed a fatal mix of prescription drugs in his system. Ledger was survived by his partner at the time, Williams, and their young daughter, Matilda (now 12).

In tearful videos posted to her Instagram story on Monday, Philipps expressed grief while driving in her car as the song “Time to Pretend” by MGMT plays in the background.

“I was just driving and I was thinking about my friends Heath who died 10 years ago and this song came on, ‘Time to Pretend,’” she said in one of the videos. “It came out after he passed away and I remember when it came out, because it made me think of him. I just thought he would have liked this song. And for some reason, every time I hear this song… it’s weird.”

Also on Monday, the late actor’s sister, Kate Ledger, revealed that the family remains in contact with Williams.

“We keep in constant contact with Michelle and Matilda and visit frequently,” Kate said. “She is an amazing girl and a source of delight to us all.”

Kate, the director of a design and media production company, cherished a close relationship with her brother, whom she called her “soul mate.”

“We spoke almost every day regardless of where Heath was in the world or what he was doing,” she recalled. “Our conversations ranged from talking about projects to what we were having for dinner! Nothing was off limits.”

Party City is apologizing for a commercial that called gluten-free people “gross.”

The party store issued a statement on Monday after several people with gluten allergies slammed the company on social media for their commercial, which was for Food Network star Sunny Anderson‘s inflatable snack stadium.

The ad features two people in a room decorated and ready for a Super Bowl party. A large snack table is on display and to the right of it is a single plate of food separated on a stool.

“Those are some gluten-free options,” one woman says in the commercial.

“Do we even know people that are like that?” another woman asked.

“Tina,” the first woman responded.

“Oh, gross, yeah,” the second woman said.

Anderson shared Party City’s full apology on her Instagram on Monday, writing in the caption, “Please read I’d like to thank @partycity for handling this swiftly and with care.”

The company issued the following statement, “Party City values its customers above all else, and we take your feedback extremely seriously. We recognize that we made an error in judgment by running the recent Big Game commercial, which was insensitive to people with food allergies.”

It continued, “We have removed the commercial from our website and all other channels, and sincerely apologize for any offense this may have caused.”

“We’d also like to clarify that Sunny Anderson was not involved in the creation of this commercial in any way, and we apologize for any offense it has caused with her audience and fans. We will also be reviewing our internal vetting process on all advertising content to avoid any future issues. In addition, Party City will be making a donation in support of Celiac Disease research.”

Amber Portwood dropped a few bombshells on Monday night’s episode of Teen Mom OG.

The reality star broke the news of her pregnancy to MTV crew which shocked producers. Portwood, who shares 8-year-old daughter Leah with ex-boyfriend Gary Shirley, admitted she had not been taking birth control when she and her boyfriend, Andrew Glennon, conceived.

Dia, an executive producer on the show, asked Portwood and Glennon if they were surprised about the pregnancy.

“I don’t think it was a surprise, we weren’t surprised, no,” Portwood said.

“Were you not using birth control?” Dia asked. Portwood shook her head in negation, and added, “And I always do,” meaning she always took care to take birth control.

Dia laughed and said, “It’s amazing, those two things go hand in hand!”

Dia also couldn’t help but wonder how long the couple had been together before they realized they were expecting their first child together.

“We just met, my brain is catching up with everything,” Dia told Glennon and Portwood. “I just need to ask. When did you guys meet?”

“Almost three months,” Portwood said, referring to the time they’d been dating.

“Woah, speedy,” Dia responded, to which Portwood said, “Well, you know I can’t do anything right.”

Glennon spoke separately with a different MTV crew member, who asked him how he was acclimating to the news of his impending fatherhood.

“I never wanted a relationship, never saw it coming,” he said. “When we met , we spoke once or twice, it was so casual. I think it was gravitational because there was no effort, it just happened.”

He continued, “Don’t get me wrong, on the inside I’m slightly terrified. At the same time, I have to accept it because I know that it feels so right.”

Portwood had her own heart-to-heart with an MTV producer, who asked how the mother of one was feeling about having another child.

“I’m freaking out a little bit,” Portwood admitted. “Just about having another human being. This is a big deal. When I was younger I didn’t realize how big of a deal it was. There are many ways to mess up.”

In the last season of Teen Mom OG, Portwood opened up about the impossibility of her having any more children after Leah. At the time, she was engaged to Matt Baier and she revealed she wouldn’t be able to have more children because of the medications she was taking for her Borderline Personality and Bipolar Disorder.

“I just got re-diagnosed for Borderline Personality and Bipolar Disorder, and I’ve been taking three medications now that I need to take for the rest of my life,” Portwood said at the time. “I can’t, I can’t get pregnant on this medication.”

She further clarified, and explained, “I can get pregnant, but it would mess up the fetus. If I do not have medication, I will not be normal. I would have … crazy mood swings.”

When Portwood was asked about whether she was taking her medications on Monday night’s episode, Portwood said she was “completely off my meds.”

She said she stopped taking them “about a month ago because I didn’t need them. a very uplifting person, he’s positive.”
