    Donations Pour in to Buy Eric Frein Lookalike a Car

    (CANADENSIS, Pa.) — Thousands of dollars have been raised for a Pennsylvania man who said he’s continually accosted by cops as he walks to work through the woods where police are searching for suspected cop killer Eric Frein. Supporters who heard about James Tully’s plight raised nearly $14,000 online to buy him a car. Tully said he walks five miles from his home in Canadensis to his job at a metal manufacturing factory, and his path crosses right through the manhunt area in the Pocono Mountains. He told ABC News affiliate WNEP that he’s been stopped by police at least… Read more

    TLC Cancels “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo”

    (NEW YORK) — Here Comes Honey Boo Boo has been canceled.

TLC is faithfully committed to the children’s ongoing comfort and well-being.” However, the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star, a mother of… Read more

    Aaron Paul Criticizes Toys ‘R’ Us' Decision to Pull "Breaking Bad" Figures

    (NEW YORK) — Just days after Toys “R” Us announced it was putting Breaking Bad action figures on an “indefinite sabbatical” from its stores, Aaron Paul is supporting a petition to put the toys back on the shelves. Paul, who played Jesse Pinkman on the AMC drama, on Thursday mocked the initial petition, launched by a Florida mom, that led to the decision by Toys “R” Us. The Emmy winner tweeted, “Wait, so @ToysRUs pulled all of the Breaking Bad figures from their shelves and still sells Barbie? Hmmmm…I wonder what is more damaging?” He then posted a fake quote… Read more

    Oscar Producers Respond to Report that Neil Patrick Harris Was Back-Up Plan for Hosting Role

    (LOS ANGELES) — The producers of the 2015 Oscars telecast say a report claiming Neil Patrick Harris was their fourth option to host the show isn’t quite accurate. The Hollywood Reporter claimed earlier this week that Craig Zadan and Neil Meron initially “begged” the 2014 host, Ellen DeGeneres, to take on the role again. When she said no, the publication reported, the producers expressed interest in Chris Rock and later Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Zadan and Meron have addressed the report in a statement to Deadline.com, in which they explained the process that led to last week’s announcement of Harris as host…. Read more

    Aaron Sorkin Confirms Christian Bale Will Play Steve Jobs on the Big Screen

    (NEW YORK) — Christian Bale has landed a new job: the role of Steve Jobs in an upcoming biopic of the late Apple visionary. Screenwriter Aaron Sorkin confirmed Bale’s involvement to Bloomberg, commenting, “We needed the best actor on the board in a certain age range and that’s Chris Bale.” Sorkin, who won a screenplay Oscar in 2011 for The Social Network, added, “He didn’t have to audition. Well, there was a meeting.” Sorkin says that while Bale “has more words to say in this movie than most people have in three movies combined,” he’s confident the actor will “crush… Read more

    Nurse Who Contracted Ebola Virus-Free, NIH Says

    (BETHESDA, Md.) — After weeks in isolation, Dallas nurse Nina Pham has been declared Ebola-free, according to the National Institutes of Health. Pham, 26, contracted Ebola from Liberian national Thomas Duncan, who flew to the United States in September and was diagnosed with Ebola at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas.

    Listen to Bette Midler Sing TLC's "Waterfalls"

    The notion of Bette Midler covering a #1 hit by the ’90s R&B supergroup TLC may not sound like a very good idea…but it turns out the Divine Miss M’s version of “Waterfalls” is a lot better than you’d think. Midler recorded the song for her upcoming album It’s the Girls!, a tribute to great girl groups.  She’s turned the tune — a cautionary tale about the dangers of both drug dealing and of having casual sex during the height of the AIDS epidemic — into a slow, mournful piano ballad.  She’s also cut out the song’s rap interlude, which… Read more
