Kris Humphries talks divorce on 'GMA': 'You’ve got to move forward' -- VIDEO

Five weeks after Kim Kardashian filed for divorce, her estranged husband Kris Humphries finally broke his silence today on Good Morning America. “For me, it’s just certain things happen in life and you’ve got to move forward,” he said. The former New Jersey Nets forward, who became a free agent this year, attempted to stay on point while he spoke about looking for a team, working with his foundation, and letting “other things… take care of themselves.”

Humphries refused to directly answer the question of whether he still loves Kardashian, saying, “I’m focused on things I can control.” All told, he approached talk of his 72-day marriage delicately, refusing to blame reality TV for the split. “I can’t say for sure” what impact cameras had on the relationship, he said. “It’s the only time I’ve been married.” One thing’s for sure, though, he won’t be watching himself on this season of Kim & Kourtney Take New York: “The only things I only watch on TV of myself is playing basketball.” See Humphries’ full interview below.

Mindy McCready defends herself to ABC News -- WATCH

Country singer and Celebrity Rehab star Mindy McCready sat down with ABC News’ Andrea Canning for an interview to tell her side of her ongoing custody saga. McCready, who recently violated a court order when she took her five-year-old son, Zander, out of the care of her mother, Gayle Inge, (who she filed a libel suit against back in August, according to the Associated Press) and brought him to Arkansas with her. The two were found hiding in a closet by the authorities, after it they were initially reported as missing.

The troubled star, who according to her website “suffers from severe depression” (she attempted suicide in 2008) and has continued to find herself in trouble with the law over the years, told Canning “[I did] not ever think that me taking my own child, that I carried for nine months, that I gave birth to in the hospital by myself would ever be breaking the law. What I did was to protect my child, and there’s not a person in the world that’s going to tell me that that is wrong.” Watch a clip below: READ FULL STORY

Angelina Jolie answers everyone's question about whether she and Brad Pitt will ever get married -- VIDEO

There may be no question posed to Angelina Jolie more than whether or not she and equally mind-bogglingly attractive partner Brad Pitt will ever get married. (Well, that and “How about a Beowulf sequel, already?!” Sarcasm.) It’s not just the tabloids splashing the still-burning question across their cover. Heck, even Jolie and Pitt’s children are asking them about it.

During an interview with Christiane Amanpour for a segment that will air on both Good Morning America and Nightline, the Oscar winner, who is making the rounds to promote her latest film and directorial debut, the war drama In the Land of Blood and Honey, assured her interviewer she wasn’t the only one asking that oft-posed question. Jolie said, “The kids asked me the other day, and I asked them if it was just because they wanted to have a ‘big cake.’” (In her kids’ defense, even if that is their reason, it’s a pretty valid one.) She continued, “They see movies that have the people getting married in the movies … you know, the happily ever after. Shrek and Fiona are married.” Then Jolie, who has become something of an expert question fielder over the past few years, told Amanpour, “We’ve explained to them that our commitment when we decided to start a family was the greatest commitment you could possibly have. Once you have six children, you’re committed.” Well, that answered that, all right. Watch the moment below: READ FULL STORY

Ann Coulter gets silenced on 'Morning Joe' for calling John McCain a 'douchebag' -- VIDEO

It looks like Ann Coulter, who has a long history of saying things, is going to have put a(nother) dollar in the Douche Bag Jar. This time around it’s for her actually calling someone a “douche bag.”

During her visit Tuesday to MSNBC’s Morning Joe, which already has a low tolerance for political name-calling, Coulter got the silent treatment from the show when she went on a tirade about Sen. John McCain, at one point apparently referring to the former presidential candidate as a “douche bag.” (“Just blur it all out,” host Joe Scarborough instructed.) Still, at least 10 seconds of Coulter’s verbal rampage were muted by the network, leaving viewers to ponder what else she could have possibly said. Probably something along the lines of this.

Bill Maher and Elisabeth Hasselbeck battle on 'The View': Watch it in all its uncomfortable glory

You’d be hard-pressed to find two people in entertainment with more conflicting views on politics than Bill Maher and Elisabeth Hasselbeck. So it only made television sense during his visit to The View on Tuesday, that they were positioned as close as uncomfortably possible to one another. In fact, uncomfortable was the key adjective to describe just about every moment of their tense meeting.

Mere moments into his visit, Maher, who stopped by to promote his new book, was halted by Hasselbeck (who didn’t appear on Wednesday’s installment of The View) to discuss a particular joke he made on his HBO show, in which he stated that upon Lara Logan’s return to the U.S. after her sexual assault in Egypt, America would send Hasselbeck in her place. [Update: Hasselbeck tweeted on Wednesday, “Comfronting someone who suggest ( even in jest) that you should be traded and gang raped for another woman IS NOT an ATTACK. #standup #women”]

Hasselbeck, who needled Maher (“Forgive this idiotic Republican for bringing this to your brilliant mind”), told him it wasn’t so much the joke at her expense that bothered her. Rather, she was speaking on behalf of women and that the joke itself wasn’t funny. (Because if there’s anything Hasselbeck cares about, it’s preserving the sanctity of comedy.) At one point, Maher explains he says these sort of things to stand on the edge for the sake of comedy, to which Hasselbeck fired back, “Thanks for being the hero.”

You can relive the interview in all of its painfully awkward, yet undeniably entertaining glory below, in which the two continue to hurl zingers at each other. READ FULL STORY

Can CNN score morning magic with Soledad O'Brien and a new panel program?

Can CNN reinvent its morning line-up? It looks like that’s what the cable news net is hoping, and execs have tapped Soledad O’Brien to lead the charge. They’ve invited O’Brien back to the sunrise shift as moderator of a conversational morning news show that will air from 7 to 9 a.m. weekdays. It’s an interesting move for an otherwise traditional network. Certainly panel shows are blowing up right now, but they’ve only been met with mixed reception. For every The Five, there’s also The Chew. And none of the shows on the air right now begins as early as O’Brien’s new vehicle will. Do people want that much talk first thing in the morning, or do they want their news straight-no-chaser like a bitter but necessary shot of wheatgrass? 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.

Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner address divorce blowback with their own media blitz -- VIDEO

In the last 24 hours, Kim Kardashian and her momager Kris Jenner mounted a double-pronged attack in defense of Kardashian’s divorce from Kris Humphries after only 72 days of marriage. Leading the charge, Kardashian released a statement on her blog yesterday. She defended her feelings for Humphries, her decision to film her wedding for Keeping Up With the Kardashians, and essentially blamed the pressures of the spotlight for her own bad decisions, saying, “I got caught up with the hoopla… and didn’t want to disappoint a lot of people.” Then, in a statement about as rich as her $20 million wedding, she asks, “I hope you respect my courage.”

This morning, Jenner sat down with the Today show’s Ann Curry. The marriage “certainly wasn’t a sham, certainly wasn’t for TV,” she insisted. She also denied reports that the family made money by selling the TV rights to the ceremony, claiming Kardashian and Humphries footed the bill for the nuptials, which many suspect were fueled by celebrity discounts and freebies. Said Jenner, “[A]t the end of the day, [money from selling wedding photos] went towards the wedding and Kim had to pay a great deal.” Watch Jenner’s interview and read more of Kardashian’s statement after the jump.
