Chris Harrison blogs 'The Bachelorette' episode 3

Chris-Harrison.jpg

I hope you enjoyed night one of our special two-night Bachelorette event. Night two airs tonight in our regular Monday primetime slot. This week we were still at the mansion but all the dates were just north of LA up in the town of Santa Barbara. Nick got the first one-on-one date. Andi was impressed by Nick and was really looking forward to their date. It’s really interesting to see these men melt into nervous little boys when they get around Andi. We saw it with Josh last week, and we now saw it with Nick. Is it just me, or does Andi seem to have deeper more meaningful conversations than many Bachelorettes have in the past? Nick and Andi shared an incredible evening. He easily got the rose but more importantly, got his first kiss.

The group date this week was easily one of Andi’s favorite dates of the entire season. To this day she’s still talking about her time with Boyz II Men. I have to say that they were awesome to work with and our entire crew enjoyed this day. We took over an open-air mall in the middle of Santa Barbara called Paseo Nuevo. The way it all worked is the Boyz put on a little show for the big crowd that showed up. By the way, a huge thanks to the thousands that took the afternoon off to show up and party with us. It was a phenomenal crowd and they were fired up. After the Boyz got done, our “boys” got up and sang so poorly that whales were congregating off the coast. One of my favorite parts of the day was standing offstage with the band while the guys made us all endure their rendition of “I’ll Make Love To You.” We were laughing so hard we could barely contain ourselves. Everybody had fun with it and it was a great experience. READ FULL STORY

Laverne Cox is 'Time' cover star, talks transgender movement

Laverne-Cox

Orange is the new black, and Laverne Cox is the new face of a movement.

The actress — best known as Sophia on Netflix’s hit prison dramedy — is on the cover of the latest issue of Time, accompanied by the cover line “The Transgender Tipping Point.”

While the full cover story — which “examines the radical rise in awareness of transgender Americans and how this movement is reshaping our definitions of gender” — isn’t yet online, Time has an extended Q&A up on their website, in which writer Katy Steinmetz talks with Cox. (The cover and interview come a month after Time made waves by not including Cox in its annual list of the world’s most influential people, despite overwhelming online support for her.)

'Scandal' star Bellamy Young reacts live on TV to Critics' Choice Awards

Score one for Drunk Mellie.

Scandal actress Bellamy Young, who portrays First Lady Mellie Grant on ABC’s crazy hit drama, was scheduled to appear on Los Angeles’ KTLA earlier today. Because the Critics’ Choice nominations had just been announced, the anchors asked Young to help them out with reading the names on air — briefly hiding from her that she herself had been nominated as well.

When they reveal that she also scored a nod, she’s obviously overwhelmed and thrilled. And this reaction is way better than the “Oh, I even forgot nominations were happening today!” response that celebs are so fond of. Watch below: READ FULL STORY

Bill Murray imparts wisdom and thrills at random bachelor party -- VIDEO

Sick of Kimye? This news is the perfect palate cleanser: Bill Murray, who has a charming way of popping up in the most ordinary of places, was the surprise toastmaster at a Memorial Day weekend bachelor party in Charleston, S.C. The actor has a home in the area and owns the Charleston Riverdogs minor league baseball team. When some Boston College alumni saw him dining at a local steakhouse, they invited him upstairs to celebrate the waning bachelorhood of their engaged pal, E.J.

Murray rebuffed them at first, according to Deadspin — but just as they were about to give up, the man, the myth, the legend waltzed in and imparted some wisdom about life and love. Since E.J., who’s scheduled to be married on June 14, is already committed, Murray directed his remarks towards the flabbergasted men in the room who are still looking for Ms. Right. “You know how funerals are not for the dead, they’re for the living?” he said. “Bachelor parties are not for the groom, they’re for the uncommitted.”

The room erupted with giddy delight, though one surmises Murray could’ve received a similar response for anything he uttered, even gibberish like “Gunga galunga. Gunga gunga da gunga.”

But Murray took his task seriously. “If you have someone that you think is The One … take that person and travel around the world,” he suggested. “Buy a plane ticket for the two of you to travel all around the world, and go to places that are hard to go to and hard to get out of. And if when you come back to JFK, when you land in JFK, and you’re still in love with that person, get married at the airport.”

That's what 'Friends' are for: David Schwimmer helps police solve stabbing case

David Schwimmer: Friend, and now, crime-solver.

Early Monday morning, a fight broke out in the lobby of the building next to Schwimmer’s New York City residence. The brawl sent both men to the hospital — and shortly afterwards, Schwimmer offered to let the police take a look at footage from his security cameras so they could see what really went down. Admittedly, Schwimmer still isn’t at Ryan Gosling status — he would have had to actually stop the fight and, you know, be Ryan Gosling — but hey, a man can try.

Schwimmer’s security footage ended up being a big help, as it recorded the fight and may be used in court now, according to the New York PostNow we really know Ross will be there for you when the rain starts to pour.
