A relaxed Woody Allen emerged on Monday amid reports his 16-year marriage is in trouble. The 78-year-old director wore a slight smile as he left a New York hotel, as a new piece in the National Enquirer alleged his relationship with Soon-Yi, 43, is under pressure.

The publication alleges the couple are having problems after recently renewed allegations he molested his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow when she was seven years old. An insider close to the director told the Enquirer that the couple's relationship "may be on the brink of collapse".

The source said: "[Soon-Yi's] been at Woody's throat and he can't seem to do anything to calm her down. They have been arguing over Dylan's accusations, and it's turned them against each other. Old wounds have been reopened and it's tearing Woody and Soon-Yi apart."

Woody and Soon-Yi married in 1997, five years after it was revealed he was intimately involved with Farrow's 21-year-old adopted daughter. The couple have two adopted teenage daughters — Bechet and Manzie who are reported to be "asking a million questions" about the allegations after hearing the rumours "at school" according to the source. Earlier this month, Dylan who claims the Blue Jasmine director molested her when she was seven, insisted she will not be "silenced" by the Hollywood star, and renewed her allegations in a New York Times blog.

Allen received his 24th Oscar nomination for Best Original Screenplay for Blue Jasmine but is highly unlikely to be in Los Angeles for the ceremony, having only attended once in the first post-9/11 ceremony where he spoke in support of his beloved New York City.

'I made 8 cakes in 6 days'

It's been a hard road for Paula Deen ever since she was slammed in June for admitting she used the N word, resulting in her Food Network contract being yanked and endorsement deals drying up.

The celebrity chef, who suffers from Type 2 Diabetes, shares with the March 10 issue of People magazine how she's gotten back on her feet, and it has included food.

"I made eight cakes in six days," the 67-year-old star confessed. "I didn't eat all those cakes, but [I've been indulging] way too much lately."

Even her husband Michael Groover, aged 58, took notice when he told her, "Honey, I don't know if I'm going to survive this." The overeating comes on the heels of a 40-pound weight loss in 2012 that she did to help moderate her diabetes.

But now she may be under pressure to stop all that stress-eating as she has signed a $75-million deal with Najafi Companies to launch Paul Deen Ventures.

It may not be helping her waistline that she's had to work on a new restaurant, Paula Deen's Family Kitchen, located next to Dolly Parton's Dollywood in Tennessee, according to a recent report from TMZ.

Also helping her get back to her old self have been therapy sessions.

"I have been on a very erratic little journey with a psychologist I respect so much," she offered to the weekly. "I hang on every word he says. I talk to him over the phone, which is very unsatisfying."

She added, "If it wasn't for my fans' love, I'd be home breathing into a paper bag."

Mommy loves you!

She was about to embark on an eight-hour international flight with an eight-month-old. So Kim Kardashian could be forgiven for feeling slightly nervous as she prepared for the journey to Paris, France, from New York with her little one.

But the 33-year-old appeared less than concerned about the upcoming flight as the pair checked in for their flight at JFK, instead showering her daughter with affection.

With North looking adorable in a pink jacket with ears on the hood, Kim couldn't resist giving her a big kiss on the cheek, hugging her close while preparing to go through security at the airport.

North, meanwhile, appeared more interested in what was going on around her, looking around inquisitively as she observed her surroundings. Kim and little Nori were joined at the airport by her mother Kris Jenner, who accompanied the pair to the French capital.
