Report: Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake Expecting First Baby

Posted on: October 30th, 2014 by ABC News No Comments

David Becker/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Jessica Biel and hubby Justin Timberlake are expecting their first child, a source tells Radar Online.

A pal of the 32-year-old actress tells the gossip website, “Jessica is at least three months pregnant and she’s due in April!”

A second source claims that Biel has been cautious about going public with the news because she’s had problems getting pregnant in the past.

“Jessica has had tense times in the past when it comes to having a baby, so it is not surprising that she is staying mum on confirming the news publicly yet,” the insider notes.

The couple celebrated their second wedding anniversary a little over a week ago while vacationing in New Zealand.

Hulton Archive/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Sometimes fate can play cruel tricks. Other times, it’s your parents who do so.

Either way, there are number of people walking around in the U.S. whose names are identical to characters from scary movies or even the folks who make scary movies or books.

This being Halloween time and all, the folks at Whitepages did some checking and found 13 names or real life Americans that fans of the horror genre will immediately recognize.

However, while you might think they’re pretty cool, imagine going through life with a name like Norman Bates:

ABC/Lou Rocco(NEW YORK) — Taylor Swift is giving back to her new adopted hometown.

The singer announced on ABC’s The View Wednesday that she’s donating the proceeds from the sale of her single, “Welcome to New York,” to New York City Public Schools.

“I’m still learning but I’m so enthusiastic about this city that I feel like when I love something, I’m very vocal about it,” Swift, who was recently named a “Global Welcome Ambassador” for New York City tourism, said earlier this week during an appearance on ABC’s Good Morning America.

“I just go around going like, ‘Everybody, New York is amazing.’ So I think they just picked up on that and they gave me, like, a title,” she added.

Swift, 24, has had a banner week, having just released her new ’80s-inspired album, 1989. This marks the first time Swift has put out a pop album, something she described as the “most authentic” move.

Frazer Harrison/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — Katie Holmes had never really spoken publicly about her split from Tom Cruise in 2012 — until now. The former Dawson’s Creek actress says she’s moved on from all the attention she got from the split and wants to keep that in the past.

As for how she lives her life, Holmes added, “I don’t have any fear now, I don’t have a lot of rules for myself, and I don’t take myself that seriously.”

Holmes, 35, and Cruise, 52, were married from 2006 to 2012 and have an eight-year-old daughter, Suri.

Amanda Bynes’ Psychiatric Hold Extended

Posted on: October 29th, 2014 by ABC News No Comments

Dave Kotinsky/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — Amanda Bynes’ stay at a California psychiatric facility was extended Monday by 30 days.

The 28-year-old actress was due to leave on Monday, but according to TMZ, her doctors asked for and were granted by a judge a 30-day extension. They told a judge that Bynes is “very ill” and isn’t healthy enough to take care of herself at this time.

Bynes was placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold more than two weeks ago, after making claims on Twitter — which she later recanted — that her father had abused her.

She was previously placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold in July of 2013.

Ashton Kutcher Says Being a Dad Is ‘Best Thing on Earth’

Posted on: October 29th, 2014 by ABC News No Comments

Robert Cianflone/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — Ashton Kutcher is loving fatherhood so far. The Two and a Half Men star made an appearance Tuesday night on Conan, saying that being a dad is the “best thing on Earth.”

Kutcher said he and his fiancée, Mila Kunis, are not relying on a nanny to help out with one-month-old Wyatt Isabelle because they have the time to spend with their child. He told Conan O’Brien on the TBS late-night show that following Wyatt’s birth he wanted to call his parents and apologize because, he said, “I never knew how much they loved me.”

Kutcher, 36, joked that he knows what will calm down his child when she’s upset, so much so that he’s become a “baby whisperer.” He joked, “I like to give the baby to my friends and let it cry for a second, be like, ‘Let me take care of that.’”

He continued, “Any sort of hero fantasy that I have is completely satiated.”

Kutcher explained that Wyatt was not the name he and Kunis initially had in mind for their baby. He said the first name they chose “didn’t fit the energy” of what they were feeling during the pregnancy. Eventually, the actor said, he felt pressure from Kunis to come up with a new name, so he started to list random objects he spotted, like a sign or a door. Once he uttered the name Wyatt, Kunis liked it, and they went with it.

After that, Kutcher said, they acquired the rights to various URLs that included the name. He exclaimed, “I don’t want a porn site with my daughter’s name on it!”

The couple also set up an email address for Wyatt, which they use to send messages to her that she can read when she’s older.

Kutcher noted that his daughter’s middle name was inspired by Kunis’ grandfather.

As for the family’s Halloween plans, Kutcher stated that he, his wife and his child will dress as the Three Little Pigs, even though he’s not a big fan of the holiday.

Kutcher was on Conan to promote Thursday night’s season premiere of his CBS sitcom. When asked what he thought of former star Charlie Sheen having expressed a desire to return to the show, Kutcher said, “I just kind of stopped listening to things that Charlie Sheen says. Charlie Sheen has become like a parent on Charlie Brown to me. It’s more like, ‘Wa wa wa wa.’”

Will Lorraine Toussaint Return to “Orange Is the New Black?”

Posted on: October 29th, 2014 by ABC News No Comments

Frazer Harrison/Getty Images(NEW YORK) —  SPOILER ALERT: After back and forth reports, it appears Lorraine Toussaint is set to reprise her role as Vee, a prisoner that shook up the women’s federal prison, on the upcoming third season of Orange Is the New Black.

On the season two finale of the Netflix series, Vee appeared to be killed after being run over by a van driven by another prisoner trying to escape the Connecticut jail.

On Tuesday morning, TMZ reported the actress was slated to return to the series’ New York set that same day. Hours later, however, Netflix told Buzzfeed that the TMZ report was false.

Despite the denial, Toussaint was later spotted by a TMZ videographer as she arrived at the Queens, New York, set of the dramedy.

When asked by the videographer if she was returning to the show, Toussaint replied, “You know, if I were to give that away they’d actually have to kill me for real…again.”

“Let’s put it this way, at the end of last season, I took a pretty big hit,” she added.

Toussaint told ABC News Radio earlier this month that she still has hope for Vee. “She’s definitely taken a hit. She’s taken a seriously bad hit. The creator Jenji Kohan believes she’s dead and she would know,” Toussaint said with a laugh, “but I secretly do think [she's alive.] Now it is Vee. It is Vee.”

Toussaint also said she was humbled that some fans continued to hope that she’s not quite dead. “Mostly I’m so flattered and honored that people actually want her to still be alive,” she added.

“If she is alive I just hope she’s nowhere near my house,” Toussaint quipped.

Toussaint is now starring in ABC’s fantasy drama Forever, which airs Tuesday nights at 10 p.m. Eastern time.

Alyssa Milano Shares Breastfeeding Photo

Posted on: October 29th, 2014 by ABC News No Comments

Frazer Harrison/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — Alyssa Milano has shared a glimpse of her life as a mom with an intimate snap posted on Instagram of her breastfeeding her baby girl Elizabella Dylan.

Milano captioned the black-and-white snap with a quote from acclaimed Czech writer Milan Kundera: “‘Ah, the joy of suckling! She lovingly watched the fishlike motions of the toothless mouth and she imagined that with her milk there flowed into her little son her deepest thoughts, concepts, and dreams.’”

The Who’s the Boss star and her husband, David Bugliari, welcomed their daughter in September. They also have a three-year-old son, Milo.

Earlier this month, Milano revealed she was leaving the ABC drama Mistresses after the show announced it was relocating from Los Angeles to Vancouver, Canada, for its third season.

“I have two babies under 4. Being a mother and wife comes first, and I just can not uproot my children and separate the family by moving away,” she wrote in a blog post on Oct. 1. “I will miss this job desperately and wish everyone the absolute best,” she added.

How Melissa McCarthy Left Guests at Adam Levine’s Halloween Party ‘Horrified’

Posted on: October 28th, 2014 by ABC News No Comments

ABC/Randy Holmes(NEW YORK) — Melissa McCarthy really liked living next to Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine.

Though she admitted that she sometimes got “goofy” when she’d catch a glimpse of him, the biggest perk may have been the invite she once scored to his big Halloween party.

“I’m pretty sure we got a pity invite just so we wouldn’t call the cops,” she told Jimmy Kimmel during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. “I was not [usually] hanging out with Adam Levine.”

So, it’s understandable that her costume — she came dressed as her goofy Midwestern aunt — didn’t exactly blend with those of his female friends. Those women, she said, were all clad in bikinis, and didn’t entirely understand why she came dressed as she did.

“They were like, ‘Why did you do that?!’” McCarthy, now starring in the film St. Vincent, recalled. “They were so horrified that I looked like that! [To them], it wasn’t funny. It didn’t seem ironic.”

Melissa Rivers Hires Attorney to Investigate Her Mother’s Death

Posted on: October 28th, 2014 by ABC News No Comments

Brian Bowen Smith/E!(NEW YORK) — Joan Rivers’ family wants answers.

The comedian’s daughter, Melissa Rivers, has retained attorneys just weeks after her mother died suddenly at the age of 81 on Sept. 4 during a medical procedure.

“In order to fully determine all of the facts and circumstances surrounding the death of Joan Rivers we confirm that our firm has been engaged by Melissa Rivers and her family,” Ben Rubinowitz, a lawyer for the law firm of Gair, Gair, Conason, Steigman, Mackauf, Bloom & Rubinowitz, told ABC News in a statement.

Earlier this month, the New York City medical examiner said that Joan Rivers died of low blood oxygen while undergoing a procedure to treat voice changes and acid reflux. The Fashion Police co-host lacked sufficient oxygen to her brain for an extended period of time, which caused brain damage. Her heart had stopped after she was sedated with propofol.

Though a representative for the medical examiner’s office told ABC News on Oct. 16 that it found no obvious medical error and ruled Rivers’ death a “therapeutic complication,” one day later, the clinic where she was treated, Yorkville Endoscopy, was found deficient by the New York State Health Department. During a routine investigation into the clinic, the department said it found lapses in four categories required for accreditation: governing body and management, surgical services, medical staff and patient rights.

Yorkville Endoscopy’s accreditation will be terminated on Jan. 7, unless it can prove it has corrected the deficiencies, which a representative for the clinic said it will do.

“The center has been working collaboratively with appropriate government regulatory agencies to ensure complete compliance with all regulations,” a spokesperson for the clinic told ABC News. “The center remains open and will continue to collaborate with all accreditation and government regulatory agencies to ensure quality care.”
