Michelle McGee apologizes to Sandra Bullock

Michelle “Bombshell” McGee has apologized to Sandra Bullock for the embarrassment her alleged affair with Jesse James may have caused. In an interview with Australian TV show Today Tonight, the Bombshell said, “Sandra, I’m sorry for your embarrassment. I’m sorry all this is public. I’m sorry for everything.” McGee also maintained, as she has all along, that she was “duped” by James, who she says told her that he’d split up with the Oscar-winning actress before they kicked off their 11-month affair. “I feel like I was lied to just as much as she was. If Jesse was upfront with me in the beginning, we wouldn’t be in this situation,” she said.

'Dancing With the Stars': Will Kate Gosselin finally get sent packing this week?

Gosselin-dwtsImage Credit: Adam Larkey/ABCAs you’ll see tonight if you tune in to the Week 4 performance episode of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars, Kate Gosselin is a terrible ballroom dancer. Ninety-nine percent of the Internet (but not Jane Seymour) seems to hate her. There are “Free Tony” t-shirts for sale (the ‘O’ is a purple disco ball)! Our Lady of Perpetual Metaphor (Bruno Tonioli) is making the late-night rounds, talking about how “dreadful” her dancing is. (“But in a nice way!”) Jimmy Fallon reenacted her stone-faced “Paparazzi” paso doble. She’s embroiled in custody disputes with Jon and has a new TLC show planned, called Twist of Kate. (Please have nothing to do with dancing! I see your use of ‘twist’ and raise you a hearty ‘hell to the no!’) No one understands who is voting to keep her in — except ABC, who’s lovin’ it like some Chicken Selects.

The Kate Gosselin Media Spectacle Spectacular has been bad before, but has it ever been this gross? When does this rancid milk expire? Are you amused by the season 10 circus, or is it time to put a once-great nation out of its misery and vote Kate off Planet Mirrorballus?


Elizabeth Taylor denies engagement

Elizabeth Taylor has shot down engagement rumors via her Twitter account today.  “The rumors regarding my engagement simply aren’t true,” Taylor tweeted. “Jason is my manager and dearest friend. I love him with all my heart.” Rumors spread last week that Taylor was engaged to her longtime manager, Jason Winters, which would have marked the ninth marriage for Taylor. That means the 78-year old icon is still available, fellas! Those interested in wooing should know that Taylor has a fondness for sequins and White Diamonds.

Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy confirm split on Twitter

Jim-Carey-Jenny-MccarthyImage Credit: Alexander Tamargo/Getty ImageJim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy have parted ways after five years together, the couple announced on their Twitter accounts this afternoon. First Carrey tweeted: “Jenny and I have just ended our 5yr relationship. I’m grateful 4 the many blessings we’ve shared and I wish her the very best! S’okay! ?;^>”. McCarthy then tweeted, “Im so grateful for the years Jim and I had together. I will stay committed to Jane [Carrey’s daughter] and will always keep Jim as a leading man in my heart.” There’s something poetic about a couple that’s always been a friend of lowbrow comedy announcing the news on Twitter. The only thing that would have made it better is if they had linked to each other, like, “@JennyfromMTV and I have just ended our 5yr relationship…” Probably a space concern. Definitely more respectful in solid black anyway. (For the record, Carrey’s publicist issued the following statement: “Jim and Jenny have recently decided to end their five year relationship. They are grateful for the many blessings they have shared and wish each other the very best.”)

Jokes aside, this was one of the couples I liked. You could imagine the humor that brought them together, and had to respect how they dealt with difficult things, like her son’s autism. Anyone else a little sad?

Jon Gosselin plans to sue Kate for custody

jon-and-kateImage Credit: TLCColored contacts enthusiast and occasional Insider special correspondent Jon Gosselin is planning to sue his ex-wife Kate for primary physical custody of their eight kids, reports People. “Jon wants to spend time with these kids, and she is throwing up road blocks,” said Jon’s lawyer, who plans on filing three separation actions within the next two days. “And the eight children are the innocent victims. This tears Jon up.” Kate’s other innocent victims include the 20 million people who tuned into last night’s Dancing With the Stars and drank in bubbling test tube of poison that was her paso doble set to Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi.”

Kate issued the following statement on People responding to the allegations: I am not willing to comment in public on the custody discussions regarding my children. What I will say is this: I am and always will be a mother first, but as a single working mom, I will do everything necessary to provide for my kids despite the opinion of others.”

John Corbett reveals how he met Bo Derek (and again, that he's in 'Sex and the City 2')

In case you missed the news when it broke, John Corbett can’t stop confirming that he will, in fact, be in Sex and the City 2. On Monday’s Lopez Tonight (watch a preview after the jump), he explains: “Somebody shot a picture of me last October in Morocco and they said ‘John Corbett’s here in Morocco shooting Sex and the City 2 the movie,’ right? And I’d been saying for six months that wasn’t me, that picture was taken in Istanbul ten years ago, because I had direct orders not to say I was in that movie but now I can say ‘I’m going to be in the Sex and the City movie.'” Hooray! (Right?)

Even more exciting: Corbett reveals how he began dating Bo Derek eight years ago. It’s so Hollywood, you have to simultaneously love it and loathe it. “My buddy is this great guy… [agent] Norby Walters…he puts this big Oscar party on [Night of 100 Stars]…this was eight years ago, and he said ‘Come to the party?’ and I said ‘You know, I’m not really dating anyone right now,’ and he said, ‘I’ll fix you up on a date.’ So he slips this thing under my door with 20 really famous ladies on it. But one name that jumped out at me. I put a one and a circle around it, and I stuck it back under his door and he called me up and said, ‘One name, you give me one name?’ And that name was Bo Derek, and we’ve been together eight years now… READ FULL STORY

'Human Target"s Mark Valley on his favorite roles, the photos he wants no one to see, and wife Anna Torv

Mark-Valley-TargetImage Credit: Justin Stephens/FoxMark Valley left his bike in Vancouver. It’s there with his radio, some clothes, and hiking gear. He left the items for good luck, and, he admits, so he can playfully brag later if his show Human Target gets picked up for more episodes beyond its current 12. (”I’ll say ‘Oh, of course it got picked up,”’ he says in a faux haughty tone, ”’I left my stuff there.”’) They haven’t heard anything yet, but he’s hopeful. ”I think there’s more story to be told.” The same can be said of Valley’s personal rise to fame. Sitting down with EW.com earlier this week, Valley spilled on some of his memorable roles. And a few of not-so memorable ones…

Character: Fair-haired resident
”I always thought it was fun to do these little parts. But they weren’t little parts to me at the time, they were a big deal. It was like ‘Oh my God, I’m going to be on a [movie] on HBO, playing ‘the fair-haired intern!”’ READ FULL STORY

Sandra Bullock's marriage woes: The end of the fairy tale?

Jesse-James-Sandra-BullockImage Credit: Jerry Watson/Retna Ltd.First, Sandra Bullock revived the female-centric romantic comedy last summer with the blockbuster performance of The Proposal. Then The Blind Side became the first female-lead movie to cross the $200 million mark. And then she won the darn Oscar out from under Meryl Streep for her performance in the latter. We all rejoiced that a good, hard-working woman was finally getting her due. That she was doing this all at 45 while wearing a gorgeous sparkly Oscar gown, while constantly thanking her husband/Prince Charming in words we all scribbled down to later use when in a pinch writing our own love notes and wedding vows, only solidified what we already suspected. Sandra Bullock was living a modern-day fairy tale, the life to which almost every woman over 30 currently aspires. We all want to look stunning at 45 while bringing home at least half of the bacon, accepting accolades for it, and being supported by our equal (and bad-boy sexy) partner. READ FULL STORY

Who is your favorite Celebrity Power Couple?

beyonce-jayzImage Credit: Kevin Mazur/WireImageFriends, the Kate Winslet/Sam Mendes divorce has left me heartbroken. Maybe I’m just a romantic, but I found their relationship truly inspirational. She was the Oscar-winning, fantastically talented (and irrepressibly charming, and ridonk gorgeous) actress of her generation. He was the Oscar-winning theater wunderkind-turned-movie maestro. They weren’t anywhere near the top of the Forbes list of Top-Earning couples, but they had a certain admirable quality that went beyond their earnings potential.

Coming so soon after the Robbins/Sarandon split, it feels to me like there’s a hole at the top of the Celebrity Power Couple Pyramid. PopWatchers, who are your nominations to fill the void in our hearts? Here are some ideas to get you started:

Ben Affleck & Jennifer Garner: I’m 90 percent sure that the warm healing glow of Bennifer 2.0 was a big factor in Affleck’s mid-decade career shift from washed-up man-meat to witty character actor and brilliant writer-director. Another plus: they don’t mind spoofing themselves in video form.

Beyoncé & Jay-Z: Like Mendes and Winslet, these two icons are equally successful in very different ways. He’s the rap god who became a music mogul. She’s the pop princess who became a multimedia Queen. They keep an admirably low public profile, unlike…

Demi Moore & Ashton Kutcher: Twitter’s First Couple has redefined “approachability” by letting the public know exactly what they’re doing and thinking every minute of every day. They’re a postmodern Hollywood couple, which is probably what we deserve.

Ellen DeGeneres & Portia de Rossi: The future Daytime Queen and the Better Off Ted/Arrested Development star are easily the funniest couple in Hollywood. Their careers are admittedly a bit lopsided success-wise, but their adorability factor is off the charts.

Zac Efron & Vanessa Hudgens: They sing, they dance, they’re young and beautiful…there are just so many reasons to hate the High School Musical couple. But unlike other pop-tart starlets, they both seem focused on breaking out of the tween ghetto and having real careers. Mark this as a wait-and-see, but don’t be surprised if, fifty years from now, they’re the next Hume Cronyn & Jessica Tandy.

Who are you favorite Pop Culture Power Couples, PopWatchers? Don’t you hate that Kate Winslet’s appearance on Extras feels so bittersweet now?


EW Exclusive: Nick Cannon on his busy career, his goals for the future, and his life with wife Mariah Carey

Nick Cannon firmly believes in the power of positive thinking. Ask the 29-year-old how his various achievements came about—successful stand-up comic at 15 years old, staff writer for Nickelodeon’s All That and Kenan & Kel at 17, CEO of his own production company Ncredible, chairman of the TeenNick cable network, host of NBC’s hit America’s Got Talent and a daily radio show, and loving husband to Mariah Carey—and he’ll tell you that he willed them to happen by telling the universe what he wanted. “I truly believe in speaking things into existence,” says Cannon. “Not to get all Tony Robbins, but you speak it, and it can definitely happen to you.” Cannon sat down with EW for an exclusive interview on his growing career and his high-profile marriage to superstar Mariah Carey.

On his film career: “They started throwing every movie [at me] and I chose bad. I didn’t understand that you had to be strategic. I was like, ‘A couple million dollars?! I get to shoot a gun?! Let’s go!’”

On his marriage to Mariah: “There were people who were for it and there were more people who were against. You have to ask the question: Is your heart more important than your career? Absolutely. I was like, If I don’t do anything else ever again in the entertainment industry, I’m in love with this woman.” READ FULL STORY
