Nicole Richie left her kids feeling embarrassed as she danced around the kitchen while giving her lizard a bath.

The Simple Life star had nine-year-old daughter Harlow in fits of giggles as she recorded her mom dancing to Bobby Darin's Splish Splash while she helped the reptile enjoy his first bath.

Captioning the video, which she uploaded to her Instagram account, Nicole wrote: "Speedy had his 1st bath this weekend & it was a blast ... even in a room full of haters #splishsplash #letmelive (sic)"

In the video, Harlow - who Nicole has with her husband, Joel Madden - can be heard telling her mom she's "embarrassing" Speedy the lizard.

Meanwhile, Nicole - who also has Sparrow, eight, with Joel - previously revealed she thinks it is important that her children have a "full-blown childhood".

She said: "Well, for Joel and me, it's very important. And it's just been this way since day one. It's extremely important to us for our kids to be kids, to have a full-blown childhood. And that is the life we've created for [them]. Not that there's anything wrong with taking your kids here and there, and sometimes we do, and that's really fun, but family and togetherness and just developing a strong closeness and trust with our kids right now, especially at this age, is the most important thing to us. So, that is where we spend most of our time."

Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone snubbed Golden Globes after parties in favour of a chilled night in.

The Hollywood stars recorded a tongue-in-cheek video posted on Jennifer's Facebook page on Monday night, in which La La Land star Emma quizzed her pal over why they decided not to go out after the annual awards ceremony, which was held in Beverly Hills on Sunday, halfway through having their make-up done.

When Emma asked, "What happened tonight?", Jennifer replied: "Well, you told me that you wanted me to be your date for the after parties so I got us tickets to some after parties and I booked a car and I was halfway through glam when you told me that you didn't want to go. You just wanted to go over to my house, so I sent my glam team home and now this is what I look like."

Emma had earlier walked the red carpet with tennis legend Billie Jean King, who she portrayed in the movie Battle of the Sexes, for which she was nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture, which she lost to Lady Bird star Saoirse Ronan.

It comes after Emma revealed she became friends with the 27-year-old beauty because they had the same "stalker".

The Oscar-winning actresses bonded over text messages for over a year before they came face to face for the first time, and both women had a fleeting panic they were about to meet "John the Orchestra Guy" when they arranged to hang out.

Meryl Streep offered to sit on Mariah Carey's lap after the singer "stole" her seat at the Golden Globes.

The We Belong Together hitmaker was incredibly apologetic when she found herself in the award winner's seat at the event in Beverly Hills on Sunday, but Meryl insists she isn't worried about what happened.

Speaking on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, she quipped: "B***h stole my seat! There she was next to Spielberg, sucking up. I said, 'No, no, stay there.' I said I'll sit on your lap."

And soon after it all happened, Mariah rushed to social media to apologise to Meryl.

She revealed on Twitter: "Got caught mingling on the way to the loo during a commercial break... took the first seat available, happens to be right next to Steven Spielberg. Cut to next commercial break, guess who comes back to her seat...(sic) ... (me) Dear Meryl, please forgive me!!!

(MERYL STREEP) You can take my seat any time!"
