We would speculate on a shortlist of prescriptions she was refilling, but in light of the recent Hulk v Gawker ruling, we’re going to keep it boring & kosher and assume she’s just picking up some cough drops & a couple boxes of Theraflu. The 30-year-old actress, who currently has an estimated net worth of around $45 million (yup, that’s what hit TV series will get you!), was seen hitting up a local CVS pharmacy yesterday afternoon in Los Angeles.

UPDATE: OOPS! Looks like Nike kicked Sharapova to the curb, as well.
The fact that the drug was outlawed on January 1, 2016 makes it seem like bad luck for tennis star Maria Sharapova, but in light of the recent drama, the Latvian company responsible for manufacturing meldonium states that the normal treatment time for the drug is four to six weeks—NOT 10 YEARS!!!
So with that in hand, I’ll have to change my earlier assessment on the situation and conclude that Maria Sharapova was obviously using the drug because it was giving her an edge in her training and performance on the court. For those of you still wondering what this drug does for an athlete, Quartz has a nice explanation:
It is primarily used to treat people with heart conditions that affect the blood’s ability to deliver oxygen to the body. As it happens, oxygen delivery is key to an athlete’s performance, too.
Here’s what Meldonium does:
It reduces the amount of oxygen needed to keep tissues alive by changing the way muscle cells metabolize various substances in the blood. Typically, long-chain fatty acids enter cell mitochondria, which is where the metabolic process occurs. Meldonium blocks this action, instead sending carbohydrates to the mitochondria.
Metabolizing carbs requires less oxygen than metabolizing fatty acids, so giving the mitochondria carbs instead of fatty acids can keep cells alive when there’s not enough oxygen in the blood. This can save lives when poor circulation reduces blood supply and oxygen to tissues. For the same reason, reducing the need for oxygen can enhance athletic performance.
These latest photos of Sharapova were snapped earlier this afternoon as she hit up an L.A. gym just a day after she announcing her suspension. Within 24 hours of the announcement, Sharapova was dropped by three big sponsors, Nike, Swiss watch brand Tag Heuer and Porsche.
This goes out to all you cankle-nibblers! Minka Kelly was decked-out in Nike gear as she headed to the gym in Beverly Hills.
I was trying to find a recent interview with Minka & all I could find was an interview 11 months back when she appeared on the Craig Ferguson show (James Cordon has since taken up his late night time slot).
After watching parts of the clip, I’m now missing his somewhat frustrating, yet simultaneously hilarious interviewing style. By the way, Minka is a total mess during the interview! While she looks hot in the dress, she’s freakishly nervous the entire time, making it nearly impossible for her to talk like a normal person, but then again, to her credit, Craig Ferguson doesn’t exactly make things easy with all his cracked-out comments.
Hilary Duff was spotted leaving the gym in West Hollywood following a workout earlier today. The singer & actress recently opened up about her relationship with estranged husband Mike Comrie telling Ellen DeGeneres: “We are good friends and we laugh a lot. And we have a great communication and we share pictures when one is not with Luca. He’s great, we are great and we keep on trucking.”
Sounds a little awkward only because their post-separation relationship sounds too good to be true. I mean, if they’re such good friends & everything is so great, why not just stay together? I guess when it comes to screwy relationships, you gotta just go with whatever works, even if it makes little sense to people outside your immediate circle.
For those of you who may have missed it, Amber was recently involved in a war of words on Twitter with ex-boyfriend Kanye West after Kanye claimed Wiz Khalifa got “trapped by a stripper.” Amber, who’s known for not being the shy type, was rocking a tank that read, “Do No Harm, But Take No Shit” during a casual post-workout Starbucks run.
Bootygate is also another name for the scandal, but let’s face it, “FingerButt” leaves very little to the imagination. If this recent feud with ex-plaything Amber Rose is all a promotional stunt for his upcoming album, then it’s a fairly odd way of going about it. While slightly on the sensitive end of the “Kosher/Not-So-Kosher” spectrum, Amber could definitely use some extra cash flow these days, so it wouldn’t completely shock me if she’s getting paid under the table for playing along (even though it makes very little sense from Kanye’s standpoint).
Exes can be mad but just know I never let them play with my ass… I don’t do that… I stay away from that area all together

We’re pretty sure Sofia Vergara treated herself to many more things that she had her personal assistants hand wrap & put under her bling’d-out tree (pictured below are the $7K Dolce & Gabbana x Friends and $50K Cartier Panthère de Cartier earrings).
The ‘Modern Family’ actress was looking very sexy as she was spotted in a pair of tight black pants while doing some after-Christmas shopping at the mall in Century City. Sofia was showing off her 5-carat wedding ring and even gave the photographer the middle finger to signal that she was tired of having her picture taken.
With Bella Thorne turning 18 today, one would expect L.A.-based papz to find the next young Hollywood actress to fan the flames of their jailbait desires. I guess the lucky actress is going to be Elle Fanning, who turns 18 early next April.
Earlier today, Elle was seen wearing a white dress as she stopped by a Hollywood studio. And yesterday, the young actress was spotted leaving a gym following what appeared to be a very sweaty workout.
We should mention that she has been busy as of late filming ’20th Century Women,’ which also stars Annette Bening. The upcoming drama film is directed and written by Mike Mills and produced by Annapurna Pictures’ Megan Ellison (daughter of billionaire Larry Ellison).
Kylie Jenner was spotted at a production studio in Sherman Oaks. Normally we’d see Kylie decked out in all Adidas but this time she decided to rock a pair of Jordans instead. Not that Kylie has an endorsement deal with Adidas that we know about but we’re sure that they’ll be interested in taking care of that like James Harden. Also, did you know that there’s an offical Kylie app on iTunes? That’s all we’re gonna say about that.
Here’s supermodel-turned-actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley hitting up the gym in West Hollywood with her stylish glass bottle (can you get any more high maintenance than a glass gym bottle?!). Anyway, you’d think she’d be busy doing fashion show stuff at the London Fashion Week going down right now, but it appears Rosie’s taking a pass this year.
These were snapped earlier this morning in Miami as Danish model Nina Agdal was seen biking it to Barry’s Bootcamp. The 23-year-old Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model emerged following what appeared to be a grueling workout showing off her tone tummy in a pink Nike crop top and black leggings.
