Chrishell Stause and Justin Hartley's Split Is Still a Bit of a Mystery, but Here's What We Know
Justin Hartley and Chrishell Stause split after two years of marriage in November 2019, but their breakup is making waves again thanks to Netflix's Selling Sunset. In a teaser for the show's upcoming third season, Chrishell is shown talking to Mary Fitzgerald about her divorce. "I'm just kind of in shock with it all," Chrishell says. "It's just a lot all at once because the whole world knows. I love him so much. This was my best friend. Who do I talk to now?"

Chrishell and Justin first got together in 2014 after costarring on The Young and the Restless, and three years later, they tied the knot in an intimate outdoor ceremony. However, in November 2019, the This Is Us actor filed for divorce, citing "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for their split and noting July 8, 2019 as the date of separation. Interestingly enough, though, their last public appearance together was at

Home Movies: ‘Something Wild,’ a Blast From the Past That Previewed the Future (Column)
There’s a fascinating game of movie fandom that goes like this:

“What’s the greatest movie of [that year] or [that decade] that never got the love, or the reputation, it deserved?” If you’re talking about the 1980s, I wouldn’t hesitate to say that it’s Jonathan Demme’s “Something Wild.”

You’ve probably heard of it, and have probably never seen it. It came out near the end of 1986, and though it received a handful of good reviews, along with some fairly hostile ones, the movie was basically ignored. No one was buzzing about it; no one was seeking it out. Its two stars, Jeff Daniels and Melanie Griffith, connected on camera in a way that should have propelled each of them into the stratosphere, but the power of that spark never made it onto the cultural radar. As the villain, the film featured a seethingly handsome young actor named

Kandi Burruss on ‘Great’ ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ Virtual Reunion and the Show’s Future

Kandi Burruss on ‘Great’ ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ Virtual Reunion and the Show’s Future
As a longtime cast member of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” Kandi Burruss is a pro when it comes to the end-of-season reunions where the entire cast comes together to reflect on all the drama. While filming on the show wrapped months ago, the reunion is taped after the episodes air. Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, the cast and crew were forced to film the reunion remotely — something that had never been done before.

“I felt like the reunion turned out really great, surprisingly, because I didn’t think there would be a way to do that and it be good,” Burruss told TheWrap on Wednesday. “Watching it back I was like, wow, it turned out way better than I expected.”

The reality TV star credits production for figuring out how to pull off the reunion — not an easy task with up to eight vocal women and host Andy Cohen

Hannah Brown and Rachel Lindsay discussed having an on-camera talk about N-word controversy before Brown backed out
Hannah Brown and Rachel Lindsay had discussed having a live conversation about the former’s use of the N-word on camera together before Brown backed out, according to “Entertainment Tonight.”

As Lindsay revealed in a lengthy video in response to the controversy on Sunday, she had reached out her fellow “Bachelorette” star after Brown said the N-word out loud while singing along to DaBaby‘s “Rockstar” on Instagram Live Saturday night. Lindsay expressed frustration that she was speaking out — “I hate that I have to do this,” she said — as she had “challenge[d] this person to use their platform” to discuss the slur, and was not satisfied that Brown instead apologized via a brief written statement on Instagram.

According to “Et’s” multiple sources, the former Bachelorettes had a long phone conversation Sunday morning about Lindsay joining Brown on an Instagram Live to have an open dialogue about the word and to educate others,

‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ Shakeup: Sharon Hoffman Replaces Jill Leiderman as Lead Producer

‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ Shakeup: Sharon Hoffman Replaces Jill Leiderman as Lead Producer
“Jimmy Kimmel Live” will undergo a major behind-the-scenes shakeup as longtime executive producer Jill Leiderman is departing the late night show. In her place will be Sharon Hoffman, a longtime CBS veteran.

Leiderman has served as Kimmel’s top producer since 2006, three years after it debuted on ABC.

“I could not be more thankful for what Jill has done for our show and could not have asked for a better partner over the past 14 years. Her contributions to the growth of ‘Jkl’ are immeasurable, including finding her worthy successor Sharon Hoffman,” Kimmel said. “We were very lucky to have Jill as long as we did and, while I am sad to see her go, I understand. I am sick of me too.”

‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ Top Producer Jill Leiderman Departs, Sharon Hoffman to Succeed
Sharon Hoffman, a veteran of CBS News and “Entertainment Tonight,” will take over as executive producer at “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” a rare behind-the-scenes changing of the guard at the ABC late-night show, where Jill Leiderman has held that role since 2006.

Leiderman has been instrumental in the evolution of Kimmel’s program, where she helped the comedian fashion a show that relied less on frat-boy humor and more on an Everyman persona that has proven durable and grown more relevant as the nation’s politics have evolved. Leiderman, who has held producer roles at Jon Stewart’s MTV program and CBS’ “Late Show” during David Letterman’s tenure, has been with Kimmel since before an eyebrow-raising and very funny video about Matt Damon’s sex appeal aired on his program and drew new attention. The success of that bit signaled a new era in late-night TV in which vignettes that get

After 14 years at the helm of Jimmy Kimmel Live! and a 25-year career in late-night, Jill Leiderman is stepping down as executive producer of the Jimmy Kimmel-headlined ABC talk show.

Upon graduating from Northwestern University in 1993, Leiderman landed a job as a production assistant on The Jon Stewart Show on MTV. She spent two years with Stewart, who would go on to anchor The Daily Show, on both the MTV and syndicated incarnations of his program. After the end of The Jon Stewart Show in 1995, Leiderman was hired by Late Show with David Letterman as as a writers’ researcher. During her 8½-year stint on the CBS late-night talker, she rose to senior writers’ producer.

In 2004, Leiderman switched gears, joining VH1 as a development executive. She was lured

Chris Watson and Bri Stauss are still making beautiful music together because you can stream to their new album now! The inaugural champs of “The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart” recorded an entire album, “Chris & Bri,” in quarantine and dropped it Monday night after the finale on their website.

“Somehow, we made an album. In two months, in different states recording, in different studios, writing everything through FaceTime,” Bri told “Entertainment Tonight” (watch below). “It was insane. I was able to come to L.A. for two weekends before the lockdown happened and then the rest was finished through FaceTime, and it was just insane.”

A 10-track LP, the album consists of five originals and five covers that the couple performed on the show, which finished filming in February. See the track listing below.

People Magazine to Launch Syndicated Series on Meredith Corp. TV Stations
The new owner of People magazine plans to adapt the entertainment and human interest magazine into a daily TV series set to launch in the fall on the company’s TV stations.

Meredith Corp., which acquired People through its Time Inc. purchase in early 2018, has tapped “Access Hollywood” veteran Rob Silverstein to lead the half-hour strip as executive producer and showrunner. The series will be “People-branded” but the formal title has not been unveiled. It will originate from New York and air initially on the Big Three network affiliates that Meredith owns in 12 mid-sized heartland markets.

Silverstein told Variety the series would mirror the venerable magazine that mixes celebrity and entertainment coverage with human interest and lifestyle stories. The breadth of People magazine’s coverage of pop culture, news and trends gives a TV series plenty to material to assemble a daily program.

“The magazine is so well respected for what they do now.

The Simpsons Cast Explain How They’ve Managed To Predict The Future

The Simpsons Cast Explain How They’ve Managed To Predict The Future
The past decade or so has proved that The Simpsons is not just the crazy animated sitcom we once thought it was but is actually a document of the future of civilization… just told through the lens of yellow cartoon characters. Donald Trump becoming president, Disney buying 20th Century Fox and, as social media has been talking a lot about lately, the coronavirus pandemic, among many others, have all been predicted by the long-running series.

Entertainment Tonight recently caught up with the stars and showrunner of The Simpsons to ask them their thoughts on the animated family’s unexpected psychic abilities. Nancy Cartwright, voice of Bart Simpson, Nelson Muntz and others, admitted that they’ve managed to get it right a lot of the time. “We’ve got quite a track record, which is impressive,” Cartwright joked.

Fittingly, giving that she voices shrewd, often cynical eight-year-old Lisa, Yeardley Smith is less convinced,

‘Listen to Your Heart’s’ Sheridan won’t give Julia another chance: ‘I’m not going to be somebody’s second choice’

‘Listen to Your Heart’s’ Sheridan won’t give Julia another chance: ‘I’m not going to be somebody’s second choice’
Julia Rae has been hopeful that Sheridan Reed will give her another chance after she apologized for dumping in for her crush Brandon Mills on last week’s “The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart.” Unfortunately, that’s not going to happen.

“For me, it’s a no,” Sheridan told “Entertainment Tonight.” “I cannot see it happening. … I think relationships are built on trust and communication. … Trust, to an extent, has been broken.”

Sheridan was head over heels for Julia, but she also had her eyes on Brandon, who was attached to Savannah McKinley. After a successful couple date swap last week, Julia broke things off with Sheridan, while Brandon watched Savannah walk away after telling her he has feelings for Julia but would stick with Savannah. Julia and Brandon were eliminated after a tepid performance, and Julia immediately regretted casting Sheridan aside. She has since revealed that she and

Chris Harrison denies Peter Kraus’ claim about ‘The Bachelor’s’ (lack of) relationship counseling

Chris Harrison denies Peter Kraus’ claim about ‘The Bachelor’s’ (lack of) relationship counseling
Last week, former “The Bachelorette” star Peter Kraus revealed why he turned down “The Bachelor” (three times). Among the reasons: Producers allegedly denied his request for relationship counseling. But that can’t be accurate, according to Chris Harrison, because contestants do get it.

“Well, they do get that,” Harrison told “Entertainment Tonight.” “Everybody has access to that.”

During an interview on “The Ben and Ashley I Almost Famous” podcast, Kraus said he rejected the opportunity to headline Season 22 of “The Bachelor — which eventually starred Arie Luyendyk Jr. — three times after producers approached him following his runner-up stint on Rachel Lindsay‘s season of “The Bachelorette.” The personal trainer, who had just started talking to a possible new love interest and didn’t feel he could guarantee a proposal on the show, denied that money was the primary reason things didn’t work out, stating that he and producers could not

‘The Bachelorette’ might have to film in a different state, Chris Harrison says
The “Bachelor” mansion might be taking a breather on “The Bachelorette.” As producers work to figure out a way to film Clare Crawley‘s season while adhering to social distancing guidelines, Chris Harrison suggests that they might have to leave California altogether to get it done.

“Right now it is still up in the air as far as timing goes. The state of California just took a big step back,” the host told “Entertainment Tonight.” “Who knows what is going on, so maybe we leave. Maybe we have to go to a state that has their stuff together and we can shoot. Maybe we are doing this in Texas — I don’t know — but right now we are just waiting and seeing where we can do this safely until we can do it the right way.”

Grant Gustin Says He Wants To Keep Playing The Flash Beyond Season 7

Grant Gustin Says He Wants To Keep Playing The Flash Beyond Season 7
The lockdown amidst the global pandemic has definitely affected the immediate future of The Flash, with season 6 being curtailed by three episodes due to the block on production. However, we also recently learned that the overall future of the show is in limbo right now, too. Grant Gustin told Michael Rosenbaum on his Inside of You podcast that negotiations to extend his contract past season 7 were interrupted by current events, so he can’t say for certain what’s going to happen.

That obviously got fans pretty worried, but the Scarlet Speedster himself has now got some additional comments that should calm everyone down. While speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Gustin addressed his remarks to Rosenbaum and made clear that he’s very optimistic about The Flash‘s future and that it’s his personal hope that he gets to make many more seasons.

Here’s how he put it:

Chris Harrison reveals if Matt James will still be on ‘The Bachelorette’ after Clare Crawley dustup
Last week, Clare Crawley caused a kerfuffle when she seemingly subtweeted “Bachelorette” contestant Matt James for allegedly not doing the show for the right reasons. He defended himself. So did she after getting backlash. It was awkward. And naturally, it had Bachelor Nation wondering if James, who’s the Bff of “Bachelorette” runner-up Tyler Cameron, will still be on the postponed season.

“As far as I know, [he’ll still be a contestant]. I mean, I have not heard anything different,” Harrison told “Entertainment Tonight,” adding that it was up to James if he wants to appear. “I mean, I don’t know if he wants to do this after quarantine, who knows? But as far as I know, yes.”

James is one of the original 32 men cast for Season 16 of “The Bachelorette,” but because nothing was filmed before the lockdown, the show has been undergoing recasting in preparation for whenever production could start, which producers

‘Listen to Your Heart’s’ Julia regrets dumping Sheridan for Brandon: ‘I am cringing with America’
Not that there’s been a lot, but Monday’s episode of “The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart” was by far the most dramatic one yet, as Julia Rae and Brandon Mills‘ incessant flirting and lack of commitment torpedoed two couples after they dumped their partners, Sheridan Reed and Savannah McKinley, respectively, to be with each other only to get eliminated. A big fat yikes all around. And Julia knows it.

“I am cringing with America,” she told “Entertainment Tonight.” “I lead with my emotions and that doesn’t always serve you well. I am an open book and I just blurt it out when I’m thinking it.”

As Chris Harrison warned us all, the Julia and Brandon drama was wild in Monday’s episode. After a couple swap paired them on a date together, Julia decided to end things with Sheridan, who’d been nothing but hopelessly devoted to her,

Move over, Barb! Nick Viall calls Madison Prewett a ‘liar,’ ‘vain’ and ‘calculated’
Well, Barbara Weber isn’t the only one who isn’t a fan of Madison Prewett. On Tuesday’s episode of his “The Viall Files” podcast, Nick Viall went off on the “Bachelor” runner-up, calling her “a liar,” “vain” and “calculated,” among other things.

The former Bachelor brought up Prewett’s interview on Kaitlyn Bristowe‘s “Off the Vine” podcast last week — her first since the “Bachelor” finale last month — in which she claimed that Peter Weber was texting her about reconciling days before he was photographed canoodling with fifth-place finisher Kelley Flanagan in Chicago. Weber responded in an comment on a “Bachelor” Instagram fan account: “you’d think you’d have a little more respect for this situation given we both know there’s more to the story.”

“We also know Madison to be a little bit of a liar. It’s true. People want to forget — I know
