'Survivor': Whitney Duncan has been hiding a secret husband

Survivor just turned into Temptation Island. People revealed today that castaway Whitney Duncan, who began an on-air romance with fellow contestant Keith Tollefson, has been secretly married for more than a year. The former Nashville Star contestant married musician Donny Fallgatter in August 2010, though the newlyweds kept their marriage secret from friends and family. Duncan told Survivor: South Pacific producers she was single even while she made phone calls to her husband back in the U.S. Before filming wrapped, Duncan confessed over the phone that she’d started a romance with Tollefson. Now back Stateside, the showmancers have been spotted around Nashville, and it appears her relationship with Fallgatter is over — if only unofficially.

What do you make of this shocking revelation, PopWatchers? Does this news change your opinion of Duncan? Tollefson has already been voted off the island, but do you think Duncan has a chance of making it to the end?

Ashton Kutcher takes the self-deprecating humor approach to image rehab

“What’s a picture worth?” Ashton Kutcher tweeted, along with a link to the photo of him posing next to an “I’M WITH STUPID” sign. Answer: Another apology for that uninformed tweet claiming Penn State firing college football legend Joe Paterno was an “insult” and showed “no class” because he wasn’t aware of the Jerry Sandusky scandal?

You can argue Twitter is just Twitter, and it’s ridiculous that what a person types in 140 characters or less becomes a news story, ever. But then, you weren’t the celebrity who just last month made a video urging the media and social media users to hold themselves to a higher standard when reporting and sharing information. After his faux pas, Kutcher has handed over management of his Twitter feed to his production company Katalyst as “a secondary editorial measure, to ensure the quality of its content.”

Oscar host vacancy: With Eddie Murphy out, who should step in? Vote!

Just one day after Brett Ratner announced he would be stepping down as Oscars producer, the 84th Academy Awards now finds itself without a host, too, as Eddie Murphy released a statement confirming that he will no longer be emceeing the ceremony. (“I was truly looking forward to being a part of the show that our production team and writers were just starting to develop, but I’m sure that the new production team and host will do an equally great job,” said Murphy, who was recruited to host the event by Ratner, his Tower Heist director.)

So now what, PopWatchers? Or more specifically, who? As in, who should host the 2012 Oscars? READ FULL STORY

Herman Cain discusses latest 'firestorm' on 'Kimmel': 'There's not an ounce of truth in all of these accusations'

GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday night not to discuss pizza or any of his nona-numbered plans, but Sharon Bialek, the latest woman to come forward and accuse him of sexual harassment. His appearance came just a few hours after Bialek held a press conference, which Cain said he watched and plans to “set the record straight” and tackle the controversy “head on” with his own press conference and media appearances.

Cain, who only referred to Bialek as “Woman #4″ told Kimmel, “There’s not an ounce of truth in all of these accusations” and that he will “talk about any and all future firestorms.” Watch the full clip below, in which Cain nearly gets himself into hot water again when Kimmel asked about Gloria Allred (“I can’t think of anything I would hire her to do”) and then nearly let a choice word slip. (“I’m in it to win it and I’m not going to be discouraged by all of this… stuff”): READ FULL STORY

Kris Jenner thinks Kris Humphries would be an 'Indian giver' if he took the ring back

If you can’t stand the idea of watching another Kardashian being interviewed about Kim’s divorce or simply the use of the unforgivable, made-up word “momager,” then by all means look away. (In fact, look at this instead. Happy place!) But, if you can’t help but be fascinated by the Kardashian saving-perpetually-stunned-face media blitz, check out Kris Jenner‘s visit to Good Morning America on Thursday.

In what is nothing more than a krazy koincidence (let’s give the Kardashians some credit, they have made intentional misspellings much more fun), Jenner was promoting her new book Kris Jenner… And All Things Kardashian when the topic of her daughter’s divorce came up. “Wow… I couldn’t have been hit with anything more shocking,” Jenner told GMA correspondent Lara Spencer, in regards to learning the news about Kim.

Scarlett Johansson talks about her leaked nude photos

Just a few weeks after stolen nude photos leaked on the Internet at the hand of accused hacker Christopher Chaney (he has since been arrested, apologized, and said he plans to plead guilty to all charges), Scarlett Johansson told CNN that the “unjust” incident felt “wrong.”

The pictures in question, however? Johansson definitely doesn’t see anything wrong with those. In an interview with Vanity Fair, which she graces the cover of for their December issue, the actress said succinctly of the photos, “I know my best angles.” READ FULL STORY

Alexis Stewart's intensely uncomfortable 'Today Show' interview: Watch and squirm!

If looks could kill, anyone that tuned into The Today Show this morning probably would have been dead by breakfast. Martha Stewart‘s daughter Alexis, alongside her former collaborator and friend Jennifer Koppelman-Hutt, visited the program to promote their book Whateverland and, apparently, make everyone terribly, terribly uncomfortable. When asked if the book — in which Stewart writes, among other things, that she felt as though she had “a glue gun pointed at my head” growing up with a famous mom — is an attack on her mother, the author simply stated, “It’s not a book about my mother. It’s a book about growing up and learning to live with what happened or didn’t happen.” (For the record, on her own show, Martha referred to the book as “hilarious” and “enlightening.”)

But it wasn’t the icy responses to the questions about Martha that would have made even David Brent uncomfortable and Nina Garcia cower in fear: It was the interaction between Stewart and Koppelman-Hutt, who have “broken up” since writing the book and working on their radio show together. Some of Stewart’s gems: “If you want to punish somebody, never talking to them again is a really good method,” “Some people are very clingy and some people like to be by themselves,” and “I’m very close to my mother, but not a single other person in my family.” (In case you were wondering, Koppelman-Hutt is very close to her entire family.) If you can handle it, watch the entire awkward clip below. READ FULL STORY

Kelsey Grammer thinks Camille married Frasier, tears up talking about new wife

Kelsey Grammer’s sitdown with Piers Morgan aired last night, and, of course, Morgan got him to open up about his very public divorce with his third wife, Camille. Did she marry Grammer because he was a TV star, he asked? “I think she married me because I was Frasier,” Grammer laughed. “I think it was Frasier. You know, he had this great wonderful life … he was stylish … and fabulous, you know, just a little gay … and he was famous. Kelsey Grammer was a different story. You got home and Kelsey Grammer was somebody different.” Asked which of Camille’s comments have hurt him most, Grammer thought of two. “She once said that I didn’t want my daughter… that pissed me off,” he offered first. (Morgan put that into context as only he could: “You’ve been a fairly hopeless husband from time to time with the various wives, and then some of them have been pretty useless wives, but you’ve throughout been a very contentious, loving father, so that kind of thing must really hurt you.”) The statement that stung both him and his fourth wife, Kayte Walsh, even more was “that thing about the child we lost … something about it being karma … it’s just disgusting,” Grammer said.  READ FULL STORY

Tracy Morgan to Letterman on his homophobic rant controversy: 'At the end of the day, I'm a comedian'

Nobody knows about public apologies better than David Letterman. Well, besides, perhaps, Tracy Morgan.

So the Late Show host commiserated with the 30 Rock star when he stopped by on Monday night to, once again, discuss the uproar he caused over the summer when he flew into an anti-gay rant on-stage at a show in Nashville. (According to accounts, Morgan had told the audience, “if his son that was gay he better come home and talk to him like a man … or he would pull out a knife and stab that little [n-----] to death.”) Since then, Morgan has made public apologies, including a conference with offended audience members from the infamous show.

Now it seems the comic actor is through with saying he’s sorry for the hate-fueled rant that split not only fans, but those in Hollywood (his 30 Rock co-star Tina Fey condemned his words, while fellow stand-up comedian Chris Rock supported him), and is now simply defending his craft. Watch the clip below. READ FULL STORY

LeAnn Rimes talks to Ellen DeGeneres about eating disorder rumors and her hubby's ex

Sometimes it’s easy to forget that LeAnn Rimes was the precocious youngster that nabbed the Best New Artist winner at the 1997 Grammys, isn’t it? That’s primarily because over the past few years, Rimes went from being a country-crossover sensation to tabloid mainstay, thanks to her relationship with her now-husband, Playboy Club actor Eddie Cibrian. (The two began an affair while working on 2009’s cheese-tastic Northern Lights, which ultimately turned into its own Nora Roberts drama and caused the demise of both of their respective marriages.)

The scandal that never-says-die got a second fourteenth life when Cibrian’s ex-wife Brandi Glanville debuted on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills this week, prompting people to get invested in the story once more. In her premiere episode Glanville declared, “I was married to the number-one d—–bag of all time.”

Perhaps to make sure she doesn’t get a kicky new nickname courtesy of Glanville on The Real Housewives, Rimes appeared on Thursday’s installment of Ellen to discuss, among other things, her relationship with Cibrian. “Obviously, we made decisions that were not necessarily the right ones, but it obviously brought us to the place where we are now. And, we’re happy and we’re married. And we’ve always put his kids first. We took the kids into consideration with everything that we do,” Rimes told DeGeneres. “The way we handled it, I will always say, it could’ve been handled a lot better, but maybe we both didn’t have the tools at the time to do it properly. I think we have both come to a really good place in our lives. And, right now, I’m really at peace.” Watch the interview below. READ FULL STORY
