Broadway Star Carole Cook on Trump, ‘Where’s John Wilkes Booth When You Need Him?’

Legendary Broadway star Carole Cook said something so shocking when asked about Donald Trump — “Where’s John Wilkes Booth when you need him?” Cook and her husband were leaving Craig’s in WeHo Sunday night when our photog asked about a performance…


Sara Haines Confirms View Departure: Where’s She Headed Next?

Sara Haines is leaving The View.

But she’s not leaving the world of television.

Far from it, in fact.

Following an announcement made at Comic-Con over the weekend, Haines woke up on Monday and confirmed to viewers that she is departing this morning program for another.

Good Morning America, to be specific.

Haines and Michael Strahan will debut their very own hour of GMA on September 10.

“I have a big announcement, it is bittersweet, so I’m going to start with the bitter part, which is just the sad part,” Haines said today, elaborating as follows:

“I will be leaving the show, for the best reason, but I have to start with this.

“I have dreamt about, I have watched the show since it began — look at who I’m flanked by … at the whole table … but there are days I go to look at Whoopi and I can’t finish a sentence because I remember it’s Whoopi Goldberg.”

Haines wasn’t done gushing, either.

“Every time I hear the theme music, I remember watching at home on my couch,” she said.

“This has been a dream I’ve always had to be on this show. Every day I walk out here, I’ve never taken it for granted.”

In conclusion?

“I don’t have words to express my gratitude. I wasn’t done being grateful and pinching myself for just sitting at this table.

“This has been a dream. I’m honored to sit here. I’m honored to go down with this brand sitting behind me every day.”

We certainly believe her, but the pull of having her own series alongside Strahan proved to be too much for Haines to turn down.

GMA Day will replace The Chew in the 1 p.m. time slot of Good Morning America.

“I cannot wait to kick things off with you,” Strahan said to Haines in a promotional video for the upcoming program.

Ever since leaving Kelly Ripa in the dust, Strahan has allegedly made enemies at Good Morning America.

It’s been evident that his goal is to become the most successful retired athlete on television, despite the rise of Alex Rodriguez over at ESPN.

And Haines is clearly psyched to help Strahan defeat all athletic comes in this domain.

Along with a video of her future co-anchor on Instagram, she wrote the following on Monday:

Ahhhhhhhh!! Not even sure I can find the words to adequately express how excited I am to sit next to @michaelstrahan as we embark on this new journey at @GMA #GMADay…it is (and has been) a dream of mine for a LONG time.

It’s bittersweet though as I leave @theviewabc, a place I have called home for the past couple years.

A huge thank you to all the viewers and fans who have followed me along the way.

I LOVE my View family, but don’t worry, my brand new *view* is literally down the street.

For The View, this announcement comes days after it was announced Paula Faris is also departing the program for a new job at ABC News handling breaking news and reporting.

With these two gone, it leaves Joy Behar, Whoopi Goldberg, Sunny Houston and Meghan McCain sitting at the ABC table each morning.

Until co-host number 2,798 is selected, that is.


Kylie Jenner and Kendall Double-Date: Where’s Kylie’s Baby Bump?

It turns out that Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner like to take their respective boyfriends on double-dates. It’s Halloween season, so they went on an appropriately spooky double-date.

Kendall Jenner might be the supermodel in the family, but as you can imagine, people have some very specific questions about Kylie’s appearance now that she’s willing to go places in public.

We’ve waited a long time to see Kylie Jenner’s baby bump.

Kylie Jenner is pregnant with Travis Scott’s baby, and to be honest, that is still so bonkers to us.

In part because Kylie is only 20 — and became pregnant at 19. That’s just not something that we expect to happen to people with what are essentially unlimited resources and, you know, access to every form of birth control known to humankind.

But also in part because math is a thing, and based upon Kylie’s due date, it appears that Kylie got pregnant after only one month of dating Travis Scott.

And that was after two years of her off-and-on relationship with Tyga.

(Tyga is not taking it well, either)

Regardless of how you feel about Kylie personally contributing to the ever-growing Kardashian-Jenner brood at an age when most girls are in college and when Kylie isn’t even old enough to drink, you have to admit one thing:

You want to see Kylie Jenner’s baby bump.

Kylie has gone to bizarre lengths to hide her baby bump, but now that she’s going out in public, maybe she’s done with the secrecy.


Us Weekly’s insider describes Kylie and Kendall’s double-date with their respective boyfriends, Travis Scott and Blake Griffin.

“Kylie and Kendall were both really loving and cuddly with their boyfriends. Both couples were almost always holding hands or had their arms around each other.”

That’s what you’d expect, despite 

“Travis and Kylie were a little more cuddly than Kendall and Blake. They would kiss more and Kylie would be hanging on Travis.”

Well, Travis and Kylie have a lot to be affectionate amount, we suppose.

“Kendall and Kylie took their boyfriends through the haunted mazes and were always clinging to their mans’ arm during the maze.”

Well, there are people out there who will be relieved to hear that protective male, frightened female gender roles are still going strong with some young Millennials.

Obviously, everyone would very naturally be curious about what Kylie Jenner’s baby bump might look like.

And Us Weekly‘s eyes on the ground were able to report on that.

“Kylie was in a very large oversize hoodie so it was impossible to see a baby bump.”

Ugh, that is so frustrating.

Not that she wore a hoodie — she can dress any way she chooses.

But it’s weird that Kylie is being so secretive about a pregnancy that everyone knows about.

And, let’s be honest, a pregnancy that Kris Jenner almost certainly arranged to have leaked when it leaked.

Does Kylie think that she’s playing some sort of wink-and-a-nudge game with the media and with her fans?

Or is this, to her, some sort of revenge for people always prying into her life?

For what it’s worth, Us Weekly also reported about a few details about the date.

“Travis and Blake seemed to get along very well.”

That’s good. And, although Travis had famously compared Kendall and Kylie’s sexual skills — which is just super gross — it’s not surprising. They’re dating a pair of sisters. You want to get along.

“Kylie and Kendall also picked up some milkshakes on their way out.”

There’s no telling if Kylie’s having pregnancy cravings or not, but at least it sounds like she’s following the no dieting while pregnant rule.


Kardashian Christmas Photo Released… But Where’s Kylie?!?

First, let’s start with this:

That’s not a typo in the headline.

The Kardashians and Jenners really are posing below for a Christmas-themed photograph. See for yourself:

The image was shared on social media by Kris Jenner last night and, yes, it does also include former Olympic Silver Medal ice skater Nancy Kerrigan.

For some reason.

“Oh no big deal…just Ice Skating with @nancyakerrigan in Calabasas in 95 degree heat for our Christmas Special!!!! #nancykerrigan,” wrote Kris as a caption to the unexpected snapshot.

In the festive photo, you can see the following famous members of this family:

  • Kendall Jenner
  • Khloe Kardashian
  • Kourtney Kardashian
  • Kourtney’s son, Reign Disick
  • Kim Kardashian
  • Kim’s daughter, North West

Notice who we did not mention?

Notice who is missing in photographic action?

Kylie Jenner.

Is she trying to hide her baby bump? Is she ashamed of this pregnancy, as some folks on the Internet have speculated?

No, an insider claims to People Magazine.

“They taped a Christmas special at Kris’ house. Kylie was there, but didn’t ice skate. She kept in the background, but seemed great,” this source explains.

As for why the family is doing Christmas stuff now?!?

Basically because they’re admitting that Keeping Up with the Kardashians is a bunch of scripted nonsense.

“We just started filming our KUWTK Christmas Special! Can’t wait for you guys to see this & see what our holiday prep is like!” wrote Kim on Twitter.

This is how TV works, of course. Episodes don’t air until several weeks after they are filmed.

But it should give fans of the series some pause to realize that the “celebration” you’ll see on the small screen in December really took place in October.

kim tweets

The Kardashians often release a Christmas card that goes viral every year, but it’s unclear whether that will happen in 2017.

For one thing, both Kylie AND Khloe will be rocking impressive baby bumps, as each is due to give birth early next year.

Kim may also be a tad busy planning for her next baby: a surrogate will welcome Kim and Kanye’s third child in January.

In other words: by this time in 2018, there will be THREE new members of this family. How insane is that?

How many E! spinoffs will this increase in relatives lead to?

How much money will Kris Jenner manage to rake in as a result? We shudder to think.

Keeping Up with the Kardashians airs Sundays at 9/8c on E!.

It’s really a pretty dumb show, if you ever take the time to watch it. Just sayin.


Game of Thrones Season 7 Finale Photos: Where’s Daenerys?!

We've known for quite some time that the final two seasons of Game of Thrones would be truncated affairs, but still, we can't help feeling that the show's seventh season finale is upon us far too soon.

Fewer episodes has meant a faster pace, which – though fun in some cases – has resulted in some pretty glaring inconsistencies in others.

(Based on travel times, Westeros is now apparently the size of Providence, Rhode Island.)

Fortunately, the show is in a position to deliver its most explosive season finale to date, which should help placate fans who are feeling slighted.

Check out the first photos from "The Wolf and the Dragon" below, and watch Game of Thrones online at TV Fanatic to get caught up in time for Sunday night's installment.

1. Tyrion and Jon Look Concerned

Tyrion and jon look concerned
Tyrion Lannister and Jon Snow look worried. Maybe, like everyone else, they’re wondering why the hell the Khaleesi isn’t in any of this week’s promotional photos.

2. Sansa Looks Pissed

Sansa looks pissed
Which has pretty much been her default state all season. Living with a sister who might want you dead can have that effect.

3. Littlefinger Looks Smug

Littlefinger looks smug
He’s probably the reason Sansa looks so pissed. The man has many talents, and irritating the hell out of everyone is certainly one of them.

4. Bran Sees Things

Bran sees things
We’re kind of surprised Team Stark has put Bran to better use this season. Seems like an all-knowing oracle would be a good thing to have around.

5. Cersei Is Pregnant

Cersei is pregnant
And yes, she’ll continue to use that fact to her strategic advantage. She didn’t get to a spot on the Iron Throne by being soft.

6. Theon is Somehow Still Alive

Theon is somehow still alive
If you can call that living. Anyone else involuntarily shudder whenever this poor bastard’s onscreen?

Abby Lee Miller in Prison: Where’s My Gourmet Food?!?

Abby Lee Miller was prepared for nearly anything after she was sentenced to a year in prison for bankruptcy fraud.

The irritating ex-Dance Moms host said in a recent interview that she may die behind bars.

But Miller was not prepared for the following.

There was simply no way for her to ready herself for the sort of treatment she’s received in jail.

That is, the normal and basic treatment provided to every inmate in said jail.

“Abby Lee was telling people that she was promised special meals and her own room,” a source tells Radar Online. “She has gotten neither!”

The same source describes Miller as “furious” as a result of this grave injustice.

Prior to the start of her 366-day prison sentence, Miller sat down and whined during multiple interviews.

“I’m afraid of being physically abused or raped,” she told People Magazine in April. “I have to stay busy. If I thought about it every day, I’d just sit around and cry.”

In order to fend off potential abuse or rape, the reality star has allegedly hired a bodyguard to keep her safe.

“The bodyguard is getting paid in commissary cash to watch over her cell and make sure that she is not messed with,” Radar writes.

Abby supposedly needs extra protection when her back is turned “in the TV room” because she’s “desperately surfing the stations to find out information about herself!”

That’s amazing.

We really hope it’s true.

Miller is a few weeks into her sentence at the FCI Victorville prison in California.

She’s reportedly already gotten into a brawl and lived to tell about it, so perhaps the worst is behind her.

She’ll also be kept a tad busier going forward because she’s set to receive her first job assignment any day now.

Moreover, “she will be done going through admissions and orientation, so she will have a permanent room assignment and job by the end of the month,” Radar says.

We send our thoughts and prayers to her future roommate, who will be stuck in a tiny cell with this annoying bully for hours and hours each day.

Miller, of course, quit Dance Moms back in March, complaining at the time about the way she was treated on set by producers.

The current season is airing on Lifetime, however, with Miller having filmed her scenes several months ago.

But she’ll soon be off the show for good and, well, we’ll celebrate when this happens.

Because she sucks a lot.


Meghan Markle and Prince Harry: Where’s the Ring?!?

By now, we’re sure you’ve heard the rumors:

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are engaged!

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are getting married next week!

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are expecting a baby!

It can be nearly impossible to discern truth from mere celebrity gossip when conversation shifts to the Suits actress and the Royal Hunk.

Just last week, for example, strong Internet chatter implied that Markle and Harry got engaged while on a trip to Africa.

“The whole proposal was the private, free and expressive moment he had hoped for,” a source told Star Magazine of Harry allegedly popping the question in a country that meant a lot to his late mother.

Hooray for the wildly famous twosome?!? Not quite. Not yet, at least.

“Harry and Meghan are not engaged yet, reports that they are are jumping the gun slightly,” an insider tells Hollywood Life, adding that the stars are “definitely headed in that direction.”

It’s worth nothing, however, that when the major development does at last take place, you won’t read about it first in a supermarket tabloid.

“When they do get engaged, Harry will follow Royal protocol and an announcement will be made by the Palace,” this same Buckingham source says.

Oh. We guess that makes sense.

The actress and the prince have been dating for about a year and a half now.

They’ve said basically nothing about their romance to the press, but they aren’t trying to hide their feelings, either.

They take trips together. They reportedly engaged in a bit of PDA on said trips.

The relationship is clearly very serious, which is why an anxious world awaits that inevitable proposal news.

“Harry and Meghan are very much in love, but they both want to make completely sure that they are ready to take the next step before doing so,” Hollywood Life writes.

The Royal Family, of course, was broken up many years ago after Prince Charles had an affair and split from Princess Diana.

“Harry does not want to make the same mistake as his mother and father did,” this insider explains. “When he marries it will be for life, and it’s not something he is going to rush into.”

Aside from the feelings involved, there’s the practical matter of what Markle will do with her life.

Will she give up acting and become a full-time Royal once that ring is on her finger?

“There’s all manor of things Harry and Meghan need to decide before getting engaged, like where they will live, and if Meghan will continue with her acting career,” says this source.

“She’s made it clear that she would like to continue working, and to do that she needs to spend a large amount of her time in Canada and the U.S.”

Seriously, if this engagement means the end of Suits on USA Network, we will not be happy!


Stranger Things Season 2 Trailer: Where’s Eleven?

Netflix premiered the first trailer for Stranger Things Season 2 at Comic-Con over the weekend.

And let us spoil one thing for you:

Barb is not coming back. We're terribly sorry.

"Nothing's gonna go back to the way it was, not really," Hopper says of life in Hawkins, Indiana, back in 1984, a sentiment echoed by Will (Noah Schnapp) because is still seeing and feeling … well… strange things since returning from the Upside Down at the conclusion of season one.

With Vincent Price's voiceover from Michael Jackson's "Thriller" serving as narration, we also get a look below at the group's Ghostbusters Halloween costumes, along with an intense tense couple moments between Nancy (Natalia Dyer) and Steve (Joe Kerry).

As for the new monster?

It isn't after Will this time around. But rather "everyone else." GULP.

Elsewhere: We see Mike has not giving up on finding Millie Bobby Brown’s Eleven, while we also see Eleven. Yes!

Is she eating waffles?

Is she in the Upside Down?

What will Sean Astin be up to as a new cast member?

All we really know so far is what Netflix has said about Season 2, which will start streaming on October 27?

It's 1984 and the citizens of Hawkins, Indiana are still reeling from the horrors of the Demogorgan and the secrets of Hawkins Lab.

Will Byers has been rescued from the Upside Down but a bigger, sinister entity still threatens those who survived.

Check out the trailer now!

Miley Cyrus Music Video: Where’s the Edge?!?

Miley Cyrus wasn't kidding in a recent interview:

She really has changed.

Speaking to Billboard, the artist explained that she's stopped smoking pot, is "completely clean" these days and focused an "evolution."

She says she's no longer in her "Dead Petz" phase.

With the release of her latest music video, we now understand what Miley means.

Gone are the risque outfits, the crotch grabs and the dirty dance moves.

In their place is a serene and happy Cyrus belting out the lyrics to the track "Malibu" frolicking all around and lying in a fielf of flowers.

Yes, the singer still flaunts her bikini body on the beach, but she does so while taking in the beauty of a waterfall.

The peaceful, upbeat video is chock full of with clips of Miley running with colorful balloons by the ocean… standing on the edge of a cliff …and playing with a cute puppy.

She's traded in her typical outlandish fashion for flowing white dresses and minimal makeup.

There's no edge here whatsoever.

The video is very pretty, but, let's be honest, also pretty darn boring.

Miley has said she wrote "Malibu" about fiance Liam Hemsworth, referencing the pair's rough path at one point in her lyrics, which reads:

“I never would’ve believed you if three years ago you told me I’d be here writing this song."

The artist recently got in some trouble for slamming the misogynistic messages at the center of hip hop music.

She later clarified these comments, but at least she has put her music where her mouth is.

The following video is as opposite from the "d-ck riding" and "c-ck sucking" she blasts that genre for as one can get. Check it out now:
