Chelsea Handler is mom to two new dogs.

After the deaths of her beloved pets Tammy, who she lost in August, and Chunk, who passed away on Thursday, the 42-year-old comedian introduced her Instagram fans to the new members of her family.

“2 new babies. Bert and Bernice,” she captioned an adorable photo with her fur balls on Instagram Sunday, adding the hashtag “#chowrescues.”

The animals closely resemble her previous pups. Handler also rescued Chunk and Tammy from shelters.

When Tammy died, the author vowed to adopt more pets.

“I will get another dog that needs a home and it will remind me every day how much I miss you,” she wrote in an Instagram tribute to Tammy, who died after a bout of renal failure.

After being adopted from a kill shelter at the age of 9, Chunk became Handler’s constant companion, a permanent fixture in her dressing rooms and even the cover star of her book Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang. Between his Twitter and Facebook accounts, the German shepherd-Chow mix had 170,000 adoring followers of his own.

“I don’t know who did my hair this day (probably me) but I know that this pic of chunk epitomizes how deeply dignified he was. We were a couple,” she captioned a photo with the pup on Thursday, the same day he died. “Thank you for your outpouring of affection.”

In a previous Instagram post announcing Chunk’s death, Handler recalled how much he loved attention from his fans.

“Thank you to everyone who has sent so many goodies, doggy treats, toys, clothes, paintings, stuffed animals, and everything else over the years,” she said. “He loved being famous and getting recognized, especially without me. So many people loved him, and i really appreciate that and so did he.”

Ed Westwick and his girlfriend showed some PDA over the weekend during a date in Los Angeles, amid the continued fallout as the actor faces allegations of sexual assault.

The duo were cuddly during a lunch outing at the eatery Lemonade on Saturday, which came just weeks after it was announced that the Gossip Girl alum, 30, was recast in the BBC’s Agatha Christie drama due to the allegations raised against him.

Serfaty, a former America’s Next Top Model contestant, has been dating Westwick since May.

A source told PEOPLE in November that Westwick and the Los Angeles-based model were “looking at engagements rings” while vacationing in Paris in late October. According to the source, those plans were put on hold in light of the allegations against Westwick, though the two remain very much together.

The first sexual assault allegation was brought against Westwick by actress Kristina Cohen on Nov. 6. In a lengthy Facebook post, Cohen alleged that Westwick raped her three years ago while she was visiting the actor at his apartment with her then-boyfriend, whom she referred to as a producer who was friends with Westwick.

Since then, the LAPD has opened an investigation into the claim, while former actress Aurélie Wynn came forward with similar accusations.

Westwick has denied both women’s allegations.

“It is disheartening and sad to me that as a result of two unverified and provably untrue social media claims, there are some in this environment who could ever conclude I have had anything to do with such vile and horrific conduct,” he wrote on Instagram and Twitter. “I have absolutely not, and I am cooperating with the authorities so that they can clear my name as soon as possible.”

A third woman, creative producer Rachel Eck, alleged in a BuzzFeed interview that in 2014, Westwick “aggressively groped” her breasts at a hotel in Hollywood. Westwick has not yet commented on Eck’s allegation, and his lawyer did not responded to multiple prior requests for comment from PEOPLE. Westwick’s rep also did not comment to BuzzFeed.

Earlier this month, producers of BBC One’s Ordeal By Innocence announced that Westwick has been replaced by actor Christian Cooke in the upcoming drama series. Reshoots on certain scenes in the project adapted from Agatha Christie’s works are planned to commence later this month.

Westwick had also “paused” from filming his series White Gold in November “while he deals with these allegations,” a statement from the BBC read at the time.

Olivia Munn is publicly responding to reports that she recently went on a “romantic” dinner date with Chris Pratt — and sharing her text messages with his ex Anna Faris about the rumors.

The 37-year-old actress used her Instagram story to shoot down talk that Faris was upset with her for dating Pratt, 38.

“1. Not every woman is scorned and upset after a breakup,” Munn wrote. “2. Not every woman is ‘furious’ at another woman for dating her ex.”

She continued, “3. So even if I was dating @prattprattpratt, some tabloids got me and @annafaris all wrong. 4. Women respect and love each other a lot more than some people like to think.”

After poking fun at what her couple name with Pratt would be — giving suggestions like “Crolivia” and “Prunn” — the X-Men: Apocolypse star shared a screenshot of a text exchange with Faris.

“Sooo… I would never respond to random tabloid stories, but since we know each other I wanted to reach out to you personally to tell you the story about me and Chris dating has 0% truth,” Munn’s message read. “I’m sure you already know it’s not true, or maybe you didn’t care either way, but I just wanted to reach out personally to tell you it’s not true.”

Faris responded, “Hi!!!! Oh my god-this town is so f—— crazy-you are so sweet to text-I love you-having said that if you were my new sister in law I would be thrilled! -lets please catch up soon.”

Munn and longtime boyfriend Aaron Rodgers called it quits in April, and the Green Bay Packers quarterback has recently moved on to a new relationship with NASCAR driver Danica Patrick.

“Yes, Aaron and I are dating,” Patrick, 35, confirmed during an interview with the Associated Press this week, adding that they had known each other for years after meeting at 2012 ESPY Awards.

 

Pratt, 38, filed for divorce from Faris in December, officially taking steps to end their eight-year marriage after they announced their split in August.

They continue to co-parent their son Jack, with Faris telling Extra that she and the Guardians of the Galaxy actor have remained friends and that both believe raising their child together is “hugely important.”

“We are great and there’s so much friendship and love, and we surround Jack with love, and funny, kind, happy people,” the 41-year-old actress said. “And as a result, he is really happy.”

In October, the Mom star sparked rumors of dating again when she was seen on several dates with cinematographer Michael Barrett, 47. The two had been spending time together since working on the new film Overboard.

“Anna has been hanging out with Michael for weeks,” a source told PEOPLE at the time. “They were hanging out occasionally in September, but started seeing each other more frequently recently.”

The two have since solidified their romance, spending time together on an Italian vacation in November. Faris and Barrett enjoyed a bundled-up ride on a water taxi as they took in the views of the romantic city. The cinematographer even sweetly wrapped his arm around the actress during the ride.
