'Fox & Friends First' misspells 'Spelling Bee' with on-air graphic -- VIDEO

Fox-and-Friends.jpg

Sometimes, jokes just write themselves. And in the case of Fox & Friends First, the early morning Fox News channel program, we mean literally.

While reporting on a recent spelling bee competition, the Fox & Friends First graphic called the event a “Spelling Be”. You have got to be kidding me, right? The irony of the error will make you smile this Monday morning, in addition to the fact that the winning word was “definition”. Watch the clip below: READ FULL STORY

'How I Met Your Mother': The Mother says she's not going to die

Everybody breathe!

Cristin Milioti, The Mother, has debunked the recent theory that her character will die in the finale of How I Met Your Mother. When asked about the growing speculation, the actress told The Hollywood Reporter, “That’s insane. There are some crazy conspiracy theories, which really makes me love the fans more… That is so crazy.”

Of course, a careful reading shows she doesn’t actually deny anything. (Lance Bass and Joey Fatone also said it was crazy for there to be an *N Sync reunion at the VMAs this year…and we all know how that turned out.) But her shock does bode well that this comedy ending in a horribly upsetting way isn’t a completely forgone conclusion.

Elsewhere in the video, Milioti noted that the ending is exactly what creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas always planned. Calling it “beautiful,” she continued, “They’ve had this vision for nine years, and it’s in great hands. They know exactly what they want to do.”

Fans only have to drive themselves crazy for a few more weeks; How I Met Your Mother‘s hourlong finale airs March 31 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.

Jimmy Kimmel enlists 'Scandal' stars for Spanish series 'Escandalo' -- VIDEO

It’s no secret that Scandal is a big hit in the United States — but Jimmy Kimmel would like everyone to know that there’s also a Spanish-speaking version of the Shonda Rhimes drama, and it’s kind of a big deal in Mexico.

Welcome to … Escandalo! For Kimmel’s version of the show, he enlisted actual Scandal actors to create a telenovela that’s just a smidgeon crazier than Shonda Rhimes’s actual show. Whatever you’re picturing, it’s even better. Plus, it has Guillermo in the role of El Presidente. Let’s just say, Kimmel has this handled.

President Obama misspells Aretha Franklin's hit song 'Respect'

A, B, C… it’s not always easy as 1, 2, 3. And yes, even the leader of the free world gets a little tongue-tied sometimes.

During a speech at the Women of Soul concert series, which is being hosted at the White House, President Obama spoke about the impact that many great artists had on the fight for equality. However, when Obama went to quote Aretha Franklin’s famous song ‘Respect’, he got a little caught up in the moment  – and, like a nervous contestant at a spelling bee, he accidentally missed a letter.

Obama told the crowd: “When Aretha [Franklin] first told us what R-S-P-E-C-T meant to her, she had no idea it would become a rallying cry for African Americans, and women, and then everyone who felt marginalized because of what they looked like or who they loved. They wanted some respect.” The crowd immediately chuckled following the slip-up, but the President pushed right past it. You’ve got to rspect that follow-through.

10 things we learned from Benedict Cumberbatch's 'T Magazine' interview

Oh hey, look — your boyfriend Benedict Cumberbatch scored another magazine cover and photoshoot! (We’d say he’s never looked better, but, uh, we’re kind of biased.)

The Cumbermeister’s latest interview isn’t exactly his most revealing ever, but it does include plenty of tasty tidbits about how his first major acting role, how the “accidental superstar” reacts to Cumbermania, and which animated character he thinks he bears a resemblance to. (Hint: It ain’t Prince Charming.) Here’s what we learned:

He’s still self-deprecating to a fault
“Why does anyone want to know my opinions?” he asks his interviewer at one point. “I’m not interested in reading my opinions.”

He’s in your computer, taking over your Internet
According to the article, last year, Cumberbatch was tweeted about a staggering 700,000 times. That’s a lot of name jokes.

He’s got a sense of humor about his unique look
“He says he looks ‘like Sid from Ice Age.’”

'West Side Story': Why a Steven Spielberg remake could work

Naya Rivera, get your agent on the phone.

Yesterday, we learned that Fox has unlocked West Side Story for a possible remake — because Steven Spielberg, of all people, has expressed interest in directing a new version.

Since making movies based on beloved stage shows like Les Misérables and Into The Woods is “in” again — something I wholeheartedly encourage — it makes sense tha Spielberg might want to try his hand at directing a musical. But it’s surprising to hear that he’s interested in something that already has such a prestigious history: The original West Side Story film is as close to a sacred cow as movie musicals get. The stage show debuted on Broadway in 1957; the legendary film, starring Natalie Wood and Richard Beymer, premiered in 1961. It went on to win 10 Oscars, including Best Picture. So, yeah, those are some big character shoes to fill. READ FULL STORY

Check out a Simpson-ized version of Ellen's Oscar selfie -- PHOTO

Does Ellen DeGeneres have some competition from Homer Simpson?

DeGeneres’ Oscar selfie — which included Meryl Streep, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, and many others — became the most retweeted message ever after Ellen posted it during Sunday’s ceremony.

But the Simpson clan — or rather, Simpsons creator Matt Groening — want to break that record. Posted on Homer Simpson’s official account is the above photo of the Simpson-ized A-list stars, alongside this message: “The ugly true story of that Oscar selfie can finally be told! Let’s break Twitter again. Look for Bart.” READ FULL STORY

Chelsea Handler: 'I'm not racist. I date a lot of black people' -- VIDEO

Despite what her Oscar tweets may have indicated, Chelsea Handler is emphatically not a racist — at least, according to Chelsea Handler.

“People are mad at me all the time. If I was worried about that, then I would be spending a lot of time online. I’d rather be a little bit more productive,” she explained to George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America Tuesday, after he brought up her controversial Academy Award-night comments — including this message about Sunday’s Best Supporting Actress winner: “#AngelinaJolie just filed adoption papers #lupitanyongo #Oscars -@chelseahandler.”

Okay, cool! Thanks for clearing that up, Chelsea. This would be the perfect time to change the subject. Right? Right?

Yeah, no. “I’m not racist,” the comedian continued, laughing as though the very idea were utterly ludicrous. “I date a lot of black people, so that would be a difficult thing to explain to them.” Palm, meet face.

Jennifer Lawrence jokingly tries to steal Oscar from Lupita Nyong'o -- PHOTO

Jennifer Lawrence can’t stop. Jennifer Lawrence won’t stop. And I, for one, wouldn’t want her to.

At last year’s Oscars, Lawrence took home the award for Best Actress, but only after she tripped her way up the stairs. And after she had the award in hand? She flipped off the entire press room. This year, she did not get a chance to trip up the stairs as she lost the Best Supporting Actress race to Twelve years A Slave‘s Lupita Nyong’o. However, J Law did not disappoint. She made sure to get her clumsiness out of the way early when she fell on the red carpet — stupid traffic cones! — and then, after she lost the Oscar race, she tried to get her hands on Nyong’o’s Oscar. Of course, she was joking, and the whole thing only makes us love her more.

The real question is, which fake fight was the night’s best — Lawrence’s struggle with Nyong’o, OR Kelly Osbourne “choking” Lady Gaga? (Osbourne and Gaga have apparently decided to bury the hatchet, after feuding for several years.) You decide:

John Travolta's favorite actress, Adela Dazeem, has joined Twitter

The only thing worse than John Travolta’s hair at the Oscars was John Travolta’s horrible mispronunciation of Idina Menzel’s name. When Travolta took the stage to introduce Menzel’s performance of the Oscar-nominated song, “Let It Go,” from her movie Frozen, he asked the audience to “please welcome the wickedly talented, one and only, Adela Dazeem.” At least, that’s what we thought he said; it’s pretty tough to understand that quick mumble.
