2014 is starting out with a bang when it comes to celebrity news.
The stars rang in the new year in style as they vacationed in sunny and snowy locales. Half of the Kardashian clan stayed in Los Angeles for New Year's Eve, while Kim, Kourtney, Kris Jenner, Scott Disick and Kanye West celebrated in Deer Valley Park, Utah. Kim and Kourtney even showed off their skills on skis in a funny Keek video.
Also this week, celebrities hit the beach, whether it was in Florida, Hawaii or Mexico. Katie Holmes relaxed poolside in Miami, while Charlize Theron and Sean Penn soaked up the sun in Oahu and Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux sunbathed in Cabo.
In other news, "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" star James Avery died on Dec. 31 of complications following open heart surgery. He was 68 years old. His co-star Alfonso Ribeiro tweeted about Avery's death, writing:
I'm deeply saddened to say that James Avery has passed away. He was a second father to me. I will miss him greatly. pic.twitter.com/UrW0EeBFbO
