Imeh Akpanudosen/WireImage(ROSWELL, Ga.) — Bobbi Kristina Brown’s husband has been arrested and charged with DUI, police said.

Nick Gordon attempted to change lanes in a BMW sedan Thursday morning in Roswell, Georgia, when the vehicle struck a curb and overturned, police told ABC News. Afterward, Gordon was arrested for DUI, failure to maintain a lane and driving with a suspended license.

Brown, 21, announced last year that she was married to her childhood friend, Gordon, who had a longtime relationship with her family. They announced their engagement in 2012.

This is not the first time Gordon has been in trouble with the law. In 2012, he was arrested for reckless driving and speeding.

A rep for Brown has not yet responded to a request for comment.

FOX via Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Even animated characters are accepting the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

In a new video released online, a shirtless Homer Simpson takes on the challenge. He nominates his neighbor Ned Flanders — twice — his co-worker Lenny and Donald Trump before spilling a glass of water on his head.

However, Bart then dumps gallons of water, plus penguins, a bear, hockey players, a snowman, Santa Claus, an ice cream truck and more, on his unsuspecting dad from a helicopter.  

The 26th season of The Simpsons premieres on Fox on September 28. You can catch up on previous seasons by tuning in to the ongoing Simpsons marathon on FXX, which concludes on Labor Day.

Posted in Entertainment News

Jason Merritt/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — Reese Witherspoon transformed into “Pink Lady” Elle Woods from her hit movie Legally Blonde to send a hopeful message to a four-year-old boy battling cancer.

The Oscar-winning actress sent the message to four-year-old Will after learning that he was a big fan of Legally Blonde.

“This is for one of the strongest little four-year-olds I can imagine. Will — I hear that you’re fighting so hard and strong against cancer and that in the hospital you’ve been watching a lot of Legally Blonde and loving it. I hope it makes you laugh!”

Witherspoon captioned an Instagram photo of herself holding a sign with the hashtag “Team Will.”

“I wanted you to know that I made this sign in your honor — and I’m sending a big big hug and my hope and prayers. Just know — I’m a really big fan of YOURS!” Witherspoon wrote. “PS anyone else – feel free to make your own sign for Will and post it with the hashtag #TeamWill so he can see it. …I’m sure he’d love that!”

In addition, the mother of three made a short YouTube video titled “The Pink Lady’s Message To Will.”

(NEW YORK) — Joan Rivers is “resting comfortably” after she was hospitalized Thursday, her daughter said.

“I want to thank everyone for the overwhelming love and support for my mother,” Melissa Rivers said in a statement released by Mount Sinai Hospital. “She is resting comfortably and is with our family. We ask that you continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers.”

A law enforcement source told ABC News that Rivers was rushed to Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City after an emergency call that she was in cardiac arrest.

The New York City Fire Department transported a woman matching Rivers’ description after receiving a call that the woman was in cardiac arrest at an Upper East Side clinic, Yorkville Endoscopy, an FDNY source said. The law enforcement source confirmed the woman was Rivers.

TMZ reported that Rivers was having surgery on her vocal chords at the clinic.

Later on Thursday, E! Online tweeted that Rivers was in “critical but stable condition.”

Rivers, 81, had been hard at work of late, co-hosting her E! TV show, Fashion Police and doing stand-up comedy. According to Ticketmaster, she had seven shows planned across the U.S. for November.

“Ignore aging: Comedy is the one place it doesn’t matter. It matters in singing because the voice goes. It matters certainly in acting because you’re no longer the sexpot. But in comedy, if you can tell a joke, they will gather around your deathbed,” she wrote in The Hollywood Reporter in 2012. “If you’re funny, you’re funny. Isn’t that wonderful?”

“Sopranos” Creator Says Comments on Tony Soprano’s Fate Were ‘Misconstrued’

Thursday, August 28th, 2014 by

Posted in Entertainment News

Craig Blankenhorn/HBO(NEW YORK) — It appears we still don’t know the answer to the question that’s been lingering on the minds of Sopranos fans for seven years: Did Tony Soprano die in the finale? Thought it seemed that series creator David Chase had cleared up the matter in a recent interview, he now says his comments were misconstrued.

The acclaimed HBO drama famously wrapped in 2007 with a fade-to-black ending in a diner, accompanied by the Journey hit “Don’t Stop Believin.’”

The scene seemingly left open the possibility that Soprano was killed. Chase was asked in a recent interview with whether Soprano died. This was his response, in the words of writer Martha P. Nochimson: “He shook his head ‘no.’ And he said simply, ‘No he isn’t.’”

However, Chase’s rep released the following statement Wednesday night: “A journalist for Vox misconstrued what David Chase said in their interview. To simply quote David as saying, ‘Tony Soprano is not dead,’ is inaccurate. There is a much larger context for that statement and as such, it is not true.”

The statement continues, “As David Chase has said numerous times on the record, ‘Whether Tony Soprano is alive or dead is not the point.’ To continue to search for this answer is fruitless. The final scene of The Sopranos raises a spiritual question that has no right or wrong answer.”

The actor who played Tony Soprano, James Gandolfini, died last year in Italy of a heart attack at the age of 51.

Hello Kitty Shocker: It’s Not a Cat

Thursday, August 28th, 2014 by

Posted in Entertainment News

iStock Editorial/Thinkstock(LOS ANGELES) — Appearances can be deceiving. Take, for example, Hello Kitty, who, despite its name and apparent whiskers on its face, is not a cat.

So says Sanrio, the Japanese company behind the popular character. Christine Yano, who’s serving as a curator of a retrospective on Hello Kitty at the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles in honor of the character’s 40th anniversary, says she thought Hello Kitty was a cat. However, she notes to the Los Angeles Times, Sanrio corrected her — “very firmly.”

Yano says, “That’s one correction Sanrio made for my script for the show. Hello Kitty is not a cat. She’s a cartoon character. She is a little girl. She is a friend. But she is not a cat. She’s never depicted on all fours. She walks and sits like a two-legged creature. She does have a pet cat of her own, however, and it’s called Charmmy Kitty.”

In a bio for Hello Kitty posted on the official Sanrio fan site, the character is a “cheerful and happy little girl” who lives in London with her mother and twin sister.

Kimmel Stages “Friends” Reunion with Aniston, Cox and Kudrow

Thursday, August 28th, 2014 by

Posted in Entertainment News

ABC/Randy Holmes(LOS ANGELES) — On Wednesday night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! Jimmy Kimmel reunited Friends castmates Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow — on a rebuilt set from the sitcom, no less — for a staged reading of Kimmel’s Friends fan fiction.

Kimmel started subtly, by asking Aniston if she’d do a favor for him, and increasingly upped the ante by first handing her a script, then unveiling the rebuilt stage.

“What? What is this?!” Aniston asked incredulously.

“This is an exact replica…I actually spent $80,000 making it,” Kimmel said. “To the ‘T’ every detail is correct.”

Jennifer began reading, but balked when Kimmel pulled out a “Rachel wig.” Aniston said, “I’ve gotta have boundaries.”

Kimmel played Ross, and it became obvious why — he wanted a love scene with Rachel. The crowd howled when Cox entered as Monica, who, like Rachel, was also scripted to compliment Ross’ lovemaking — as was Kudrow, who was also met with a roar from the crowd.

Eventually, we learn Kimmel had “killed off” Joey and Chandler in order to have all the actresses to himself. However, before the scene in which they “all make out,” the actresses walk off, with Aniston saying, “Make love to yourself, Jimmy.”

In other Friends news, the upcoming 20th anniversary of the sitcom’s premiere will be honored with a pop-up replica of Central Perk — the coffee shop where Ross, Rachel, Monica, Chandler, Joey and Phoebe spent countless hours. The replica will open in the SoHo neighborhood of Manhattan. It will be open to the public from Sept. 17 to Oct. 18, and will feature free coffee, special appearances by the actor who played the barista Gunther, James Michael Tyler, as well as contests and more.  Friends premiered on NBC on Sept. 22, 1994.

“Full House” May Be Revived with Some Original Cast Members

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014 by

Posted in Entertainment News

Jason LaVeris/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) — Full House, making a comeback? In the immortal words of Uncle Jesse, “Have mercy!”

A revival of the hit 1987-1995 sitcom may be coming to your TV screen, according to John Stamos, who played Uncle Jesse on Full House and reportedly has an ownership stake in the show, is “leading the charge” on the idea for Warner Bros. Television, according to the site, along with series creator Jeff Franklin and executive producer Bob Boyett.

The proposed revival would feature original cast members Candace Cameron Bure and Jodie Sweetin — who played Tanner family daughters D.J. and Stephanie — as well as Andrea Barber, who played D.J.’s best friend, Kimmy.

Bob Saget and Dave Coulier — a.k.a. Danny Tanner and Uncle Joey — are also “involved in some way,” according to

It’s unclear whether Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who shared the role of the youngest Tanner daughter, Michelle, will take part in the potential project, which at this point is not official.

Full House is a hit in reruns on Nick at Nite, and the cast remains close. Stamos, Coulier and Saget co-starred in a Super Bowl commercial for Dannon Oikos Greek yogurt earlier this year. In July, Stamos, Saget, Cameron Bure and Barber attended Coulier’s wedding.

Celebrities Join Chelsea Handler for Musical Sendoff

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014 by

Posted in Entertainment News

Timothy White/E!(LOS ANGELES) — On Tuesday night, Chelsea Handler and a number of her celebrity pals bade farewell to Chelsea Lately, the comedienne’s E! show.

Handler announced previously that she was leaving E! and heading to Netflix to create “docu-comedy specials” and also host Netflix’s first talk show. The talk show does not have a premiere date.

In her opening monologue, Handler remarked she was “wrapping up seven years of ridiculous stupidity” and was “very impressed” with herself. She proceeded to pat herself on her own back.

Tuesday’s hour-long, live send-off began with another one of the show’s shower bits — this time with a clothed Ellen DeGeneres interrogating a nude Handler as why she was never asked to be on the show. “Is it because I’m a lesbian?” Ellen asked. “No!” Handler protested. “I didn’t even know you were a lesbian. I thought you were married to Ryan Seacrest.”

The show featured a parade of the series’ former “Roundtable” guests including comics like Whitney Cummings and T.J. Miller, and then segued to a sit-down with Handler’s pals, Sandra Bullock, Mary McCormack, and Jennifer Aniston.

The trio, wearing signs bearing their first names, then staged an “intervention” for the allegedly hard-partying host. “I urge you to get help,” McCormack pleaded. “So if you have to tell the world that you’re ‘Going to Netflix,’ for a little while, I think everyone supports you…Netflix is a wonderful facility…Jen, Sandy, and I have arranged a plane that can take you to Netflix tonight when the show wraps.”

Aniston claimed, “I miss the old Chelsea. The Chelsea who resembled a battered Gold Rush-era hooker…The one that I used to find naked on my lawn chair after she fell asleep in the sprinklers with little Chuy on her back.”

Bullock started with, “Dear George, your practical jokes are annoying,” before realizing she’d, “cut and pasted” the format from her Clooney intervention. She went on to say she had, “no intention of confronting” Chelsea about anything because their friendship “is still relatively new, and you still scare me a little bit.” Bullock later scolded her friend for breaking up with 50 Cent, who appeared and later performed.

Miley Cyrus also appeared to sing Roy Orbison’s torch song “It’s Over.”

That was followed by an impressive group of celebrities, including the aforementioned, singing a “We Are The World” spoof called “Goodbye to E!.” The sing-along featured Trace Atkins, Fergie, Gwen Stefani, Gerard Butler, Avril Lavigne, Joel McHale, Tim Gunn, Josh Gadd, LeAnn Rimes, Alanis Morissette, Sammy Hagar, Amy Poehler, Bobby Brown, Dave Grohl, Dane Cook, Johnny Knoxville, Tim Allen, and Melissa McCarthy, with Marlee Matlin signing.  When Stefani introduced the sing-along, she referenced her Emmy night Colbert Report blunder by calling Handler “Chelsea Hemmer.”

Handler also thanked E! for the opportunity to have her own show, and called for people to donate to Cyrus’ charity My Friend’s Place, which benefits homeless teens. “Y’all are rich,” Miley said of her fellow celebrity chorus members, “so everybody here should donate, that’s all I’m saying.” Chelsea insisted she’d “make” her wealthy friends pony up, but implored regular people to do so, too.
