Proud dad alert! 

Judd Apatow was right by his daughter Maude Apatow‘s side as she made her directorial debut during tonight’s 2018 Santa Barbara International Film Festival, heading over to Instagram with a sweet photo of the accomplished 20-year-old. 

“Congratulations @maudeapatow for showing her first short film at the Santa Barbara Film Festival and also to her co-director @oliviarosenbloom!” the famous director wrote alongside a selfie of the pair inside the theater. 

And with Apatow and actress Leslie Mann as ‘rents, Maude was practically destined for a career in the enterainment industry. In fact, Apatow cast his then 10-year-old little girl and youngest daughter Iris Apatow in his 2007 hit comedy Knocked Up. Maude has also played the daughter to her real-life mom’s characters in Funny People and This Is 40

So what’s it like to follow in the footsteps of comedy greats like her pops? As she explained to Nylon in 2016, Maude (who studies theater at Northwestern University) is not only thankful for Judd’s advice, but for the words of wisdom Amy Schumer and Lena Dunham have passed on. 

“My dad has always said, ‘Write for yourself.’ Because as an actor, you don’t have much control over what happens,” she explained. “But Lena and Amy, they’re involved in writing and acting and directing and editing. I want to learn how to write better so I can write for myself.”

Congratulations, Maude! Something tells us her career is only just getting started.

One down, nine to go!

Big Brother: Celebrity Edition had its first eviction on Friday night, with James Maslow and Chuck Liddell both up for elimination entering the hour. After Keshia Knight Pulliam ended up becoming HoH in Thursday night’s episode, she stuck with the women’s plan and nominated James and Chuck in their first step to eliminate all the male competitors. 

During tonight’s two-hour episode, both of the nominees tried their best to win the Power of Veto. Ultimately, Shannon Elizabeth took home the prize and chose to keep the nominations the same. 

So who ended up going home, becoming the CBS reality series’ first-ever celeb exit? Boy how things can change.

In a surprise turn of events, Julie Chen informed the house that Chuck was eliminated after receiving seven votes from the house. 

“I think it switched last night some time. I don’t know…I’m not sure what happened exactly,” Chuck shared with Julie after being eliminated. “But I guess I wasn’t as good as the social kind of game as James was.” 

He added, “You know, I don’t know why it didn’t work. I don’t think this is my game. I really want to be on The Amazing Race with my wife.”

Julie later revealed that the eliminated house guests will automatically become members of the jury and cast the final winner. And yes, they can watch from home and not in sequester.   

Along with Keshia, the other remaining houseguests include Omarosa, E! personality Ross Matthews, Shannon (American Pie), Mark McGrath (Sugar Ray), Marissa Jaret Winokur (Actress), Metta World Peace (former NBA player), and Ariadna Gutierrez (Miss Universe 2015).

Big Brother Celebrity Edition‘s next episode airs Sunday at 8 p.m. on CBS.
