ENTERTAINMENT NEWS

Tony Romo and Wife Candice Romo Expecting Third Child Together. Tony Romo and his wife, Candice Romo, might have another footballer on their hands! The Dallas Cowboys quarterback and his wife are expecting their third child. Candice announced the exciting news Tuesday morning on KTCK 96.7 FM The Ticket. "We will be expecting our third little Romo offspring this August," she said. Tony and Candice are already parents to two boys, Hawkins, 4, and Rivers, 2. The NFL star and his wife, a sports reporter, and sister of actor Chace Crawford, tied the knot at Arlington Hall in Dallas in May 2011. Romo popped the question Dec. 16 on his future wife's 24th birthday, after about a year and a half of dating. Candice, who was named Miss Missouri in 2008 and was a top-10 finisher for Miss USA, was a sports reporter for KDAF-TV in Dallas/Fort Worth at the time. They welcomed their first child together in April 2012. "He's over-the-moon excited about it," Chace told Us Weekly regarding his brother-in-law at the time. "He's just such a wonderful person...He was born ready to have a family, you know what I mean? So it makes perfect sense." Congratulations to Tony and Candice! (Eonline)

Bella Hadid Opens Up About Her Breakup With The Weeknd: "Love Hurts, but You Have to Pull Through." Bella Hadid always gives perfect face -- even when the thoughts behind her smile are heavy ones. "When I love somebody, I love them with my whole heart," said the 20-year-old model said in a revealing new interview with Teen Vogue for their "Love Issue," in which she admits that her breakup with The Weeknd last year did take its toll, even if she maintained a stoic front in public and on social media. "It was my first breakup -- or second, next to the horse -- and so public," Bella, who in addition to being all over New York Fashion Week sister Gigi Hadid is also an accomplished equestrienne, said. "As an outsider, you might think I handled it so well, but it's always in your heart, and you always feel it very heavily." She added, "It'll be hard for a while. Love hurts, but you have to pull through." The horse she was referring to, meanwhile, is named Lego and he actually came along long before The Weeknd did. He was her favorite competition horse, she explained, "my main, my ride or die," but her family sold him after her Lyme disease diagnosis forced her to give up her goal of training for the Olympics. Bella has been open about her battle with Lyme disease, an infection caused by a tick bite that is treatable but can trigger severe health consequences; mom Yolanda Hadid also suffered from the disease. So the kid knows something about strength and taking care of herself. She nailed her Victoria's Secret Fashion Show debut last November -- a debut she had to make when The Weeknd was right there performing. As in, while she walked. Bella became somewhat of a social media idol when it comes to the picture of her rocking the Victoria's Secret lingerie on stage while her ex performed like it was no big deal, the kind of moment almost anybody who's been through a breakup has probably fantasized about. She told E! News at the time that she and the singer, who's now dating Selena Gomez, remained close despite the split. "There is no awkwardness. He is my best friend, and I am excited because I am walking during his performance," Bella said. A source told us that the "I Feel It Coming" singer sent Bella a token of his affection to her hotel room in Paris to wish her luck before the big show, and they had been talking and texting. It's unclear whether he had stepped out with Selena yet when Bella talked to Teen Vogue, but either way, she maturely and gracefully told the mag, "I'll always respect him, and I'll always love him. Sometimes you want to be sad about it or handle it differently, but at the end of the day, you never want to burn a bridge that you've fought so hard to build." (Eonline)

Shailene Woodley Wants a Mug Shot Do-Over. Given the choice, Shailene Woodley would like to retake her mug shot. Stephen Colbert touted the image on CBS' The Late Show Monday (with Woodley's blessing), admitting it took him by surprise. At first, he thought she was "auditioning for Orange Is the New Black," he said. "This is you actually having been arrested at the Standing Rock protest." "I wish I had known that this was going to be as public as it was. I would have made a [tough] face," she said. "I feel like I'm just looking at the person like, 'Are you kidding me right now?'" Colbert told her not to be so hard on herself. "If I was arrested and put in an orange jumpsuit, I wouldn't look as serene as you do there," he told Woodley. "I think that's a really good choice." Woodley was arrested for trespassing while protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline in October. "I was lucky. My mom was actually with me in North Dakota that day by happenstance," she said. "It was her first time there; she was out there to participate in this powwow in Rapid City, S.D." At the time of her arrest, Woodley was broadcasting on Facebook Live. "I handed her my phone and I was like, 'Keep recording.' The look on her face -- she was shocked," the 25-year-old said. "I can't imagine what it would be like to watch your daughter be handcuffed and taken away." Woodley was released from Morton County Jail hours later. As the actress' publicist told E! News at the time, "She appreciates the outpouring of support, not only for her, but more importantly, for the continued fight against the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline." The cause is close to Woodley's heart. "The tribe at Standing Rock has been opposing this pipeline since 2014. Last year, starting around September, thousands of people flooded to the reservation to protest this pipeline," she told Colbert. "We got the Army Corps of Engineers under [Barack] Obama's administration to deny the easement, so they couldn't drill. And as we've all maybe heard, in the last few weeks there has been an executive order from [Donald] Trump's administration saying that they were going to go ahead with the easement anyways and start drilling...[But] the protest at Standing Rock is continuing. People are still there." And Woodley will continue to speak up. "The front lines don't necessarily have to be in North Dakota. The front lines can be wherever you are," she explained. "You can create a protest in New York City -- because protests are about creating awareness and people coming together." (Eonline)

To put it bluntly, Elle King was on another level at the 2017 Grammy Awards. On Monday, the singer revealed she was "accidentally high AF" during music's biggest night. "Note to self, don't eat a bunch of pot muffins before the Grammys red carpet," King, 27, wrote on Instagram along with a screenshot of herself during a red carpet interview. At the star-studded soiree, King, who attended Sunday's show with country star Dierks Bentley, exhibited flower power with her Teuta Matoshi gown and a Lirika Matoshi floral crown, which she now regrets choosing. "Sometimes when you're accidentally high af from pot muffins, you don't realize you're A F–KING SNAPCHAT FILTER until after the Grammys and people tell you," the daughter of actor Rob Schneider captioned her second marijuana-referencing screengrab. King was nominated for best country duo/group performance for her duet with Bentley, "Different for Girls." "I thought it would be a cool collaboration," Bentley, 42, told PEOPLE on the red carpet. "She's who I wanted and I got her. It's the perfect person with the right song. It's not a standard country song. It took the right person to make it come alive, and she was the person so I got really lucky." King previously earned two nominations last year for "Ex's & Oh's" in the best rock song and best rock performance categories. (People)

Hugh Jackman is being treated for skin cancer for the sixth time. Hugh Jackman is being treated for skin cancer for the sixth time. The X-Men actor took to Instagram to share the news with his followers and highlight the importance of wearing sunscreen. He wrote "Another basal cell carcinoma. Thanks to frequent body checks and amazing doctors, all is well. Looks worse with the dressing on than off. I swear!" He finished the post saying "#wearsunscreen." Hugh was treated for skin cancer twice in 2014 and three times before. He first got checked after his wife urged him to see a doctor about the "mark" on his nose. The disease is curable if detected early enough. In 2014, he posted a similar message, saying: Hugh posted an image to his Instagram page featuring the words Everybody's free (to wear sunscreen), a reference to the Baz Luhrmann song, and a plea for his followers to protect their skin from the sun's harmful rays. Here's wishing Hugh a speedy recovery. (British Glamour)

Alanis Morissette, Kim Kardashian and a bunch of other celebs have turned their social media accounts into a Thomas Guide for criminals who are looking for the most expensive jewelry in town. Law enforcement sources tell us they believe Instagram and other platforms have become the undoing of famous folks who show off expensive bling. TMZ broke the story, Alanis was just hit by burglars who made off with $2 mil in jewelry. No surprise ... Alanis has been posting photos of her bling on various social media platforms and her blog. Some of the rings, bracelets and other jewelry go for thousands and thousands of bucks. Kim learned her lesson, but a slew of celebs continue to flaunt their wealth on social media. Cops tell us it's simple for thieves to find out where people live, and by posting pics of jewelry in the home it becomes a roadmap for a quick hit. They say the problem is compounded when celebs post vacation photos in real time because it's like a neon sign to break in. (TMZ)

Sarah Silverman Repeatedly Mocked For Mistaking Construction Markers For Swastikas! Oof! How awkward for Sarah Silverman! Over the weekend, the comedienne took to Twitter to reveal she spotted potential swastikas all over a sidewalk she was walking on. Unfortunately for the funny lady, the so-called swastikas were merely markers for construction workers. Oof! Initially, the I Smile Back star posted: The trolls of the internet were quick to call out Miz Silverman on her blunder as she was DRAGGED for the mistake. At first, Sarah didn't let the criticism get to her as she defended: However after followers didn't lay off her, the stand-up clapped back: You tell 'em, girl. In fact, this isn't the first time the 46-year-old has sparked controversy via her Twitter account. Earlier this month, the School Of Rock alum was accused of encouraging a military coup against President Donald Trump. Eek. Still, we'd rather have Sarah fighting the good fight than censor herself online. Don't stress too much, Silverman... everyone makes mistakes! (Perez Hilton)

Justin Bieber Is Trolling The Weeknd! Justin Bieber is sounding super bitter about his ex Selena Gomez dating The Weeknd! As we previously reported, the pop star responded to news of the rumored couple by saying the Starboy star's music is "wack." The Biebs wasn't done there though! With Selly and The Weeknd AKA Abel Tesfaye's relationship seemingly getting more serious, the Sorry singer is continuing to take shots at his fellow Canadian. While Abel was celebrating at the Grammys, Justin took to Instagram Live to answer fan questions AND make fun of his ex's new man! Sharing what his fave song of the moment is, the 22-year-old replied, "Starboy by The Weeknd" -- and it absolutely cracked him up: "Oh shit that was funny. We gotta end it now. That was too funny." (Perez Hilton)

Oakland Raiders star Aldon Smith is being investigated for what we're told is a domestic incident ... TMZ Sports has learned. Sources tell us cops in San Francisco were called early Saturday morning and responded to a home in the city. Smith owns a house in San Francisco. Police interviewed Smith and the alleged victim and took a report. The case is under "active investigation." Smith has not been arrested. An arrest would be catastrophic for Smith's career -- he's currently suspended by the NFL for multiple violations of the league's substance abuse policy. Smith was expected to be reinstated in March, on the assumption he stayed out of trouble. An arrest could undo his prospects. Smith has had several run-ins with police since he was drafted by the 49ers back in 2011. Smith showed extreme potential when he was on the field -- he was the NFC Defensive Player of the Year back in 2012. A rep for Smith had no comment. (TMZ)

Disney has "ended its affiliation" with YouTube's biggest celebrity, PewDiePie (a.k.a. 27-year-old Swede Felix Kjellberg), after multiple videos he uploaded were reportedly found to contain antisemitic content. According to a Wall Street Journal report, cited in affiliate website MarketWatch, the move was sparked by a Jan. 11 video on Kjellberg's YouTube channel. The video apparently showed what the Journal said were two men hired by the internet personality to display a sign that read "Death to All Jews." According to the Journal, that video has since been removed by Kjellberg himself, who said that it was a joke gone too far. The Journal said that a further review of Kjellberg's YouTube channel turned up nine videos, dating back to August 2016, that contained jokes construed as antisemitic or imagery related to Nazism. On Monday, TIME was told Disney was cutting off relations with Kjellberg. "Although Felix has created a following by being provocative and irreverent, he clearly went too far in this case and the resulting videos are inappropriate," reads a statement Disney provided to TIME. "Maker Studios has made the decision to end our affiliation with him going forward." The entertainment conglomerate's Maker Studios division had partnered with Kjellberg to produce Scare PewDiePie, a 10-episode series for YouTube Red, the Google subsidiary's premium streaming service. Its first season was released in early 2016, the Journal said. In a Tumblr post dated Feb. 12 that addressed the Jan. 11 video, Kjellberg conceded that "these jokes were ultimately offensive," but insisted he was "in no way supporting any kind of hateful attitudes." "To anyone unsure on my standpoint regarding hate-based groups: No, I don't support these people in any way," he wrote. Kjellberg rose to internet stardom as PewDiePie by uploading videos of himself playing video games and joking along the way, sometimes crassly, to YouTube. Since first joining YouTube in April 2010, he has built a massive online following of over 53 million subscribers at the time of writing, and a formidable business model. In 2014 alone, Kjellberg earned $7.4 million from his videos. TIME has reached out to YouTube and PewDiePie for comments regarding the Disney termination. (People)

THE OTHER STUFF . . .

John Stamos Makes Puppy Eyes With His Pooch for PETA. Sorry, Caitlin McHugh. John Stamos has a new date to cuddle with on Valentine's Day, and it's an adorable dog! Just in time for today's lovey-dovey holiday, E! News has an exclusive look at the Scream Queens star and undeniable heartthrob's latest partnership with PETA. John joined forces with the animal rights organization to promote adoptions from animal shelters, a cause near and dear to him. In the ad campaign, which proclaims, "Adoption Is Love. Begin a Lifelong Friendship at Your Local Animal Shelter," John and the pooch lay next to each other one the ground. Celeb photographer Brian Bowen Smith captured the sweet snapshot. Stamos is an animal lover himself and is a proud dad dog to two precious canines (who both have their own Instagram pages!) of his own. "I couldn't ask for more devoted companions than my dogs Lilo and Frieda, who are always ready to play, snuggle, and keep my spirits up," John shared in a press release. "PETA and I encourage people to find the love of their lives at their local animal shelter." Over the summer, John mourned the loss of his beloved German Shepard, Linka. "She was always there, especially in the dark times. Never judging. By my side. Only loyal. #rip Linka," the actor wrote on Instagram. (Eonline)

Wolfgang Puck dropped the f-bomb like it was fresh meat on a grill while he was live on HSN. Wolfgang was promoting his own 14-piece cookware, and its low low price ... when he expressed shock at how much the competition charges. It was quick, and it was late Saturday night ... so maybe no one noticed. Clearly, someone's a little slow on the censor button over at HSN. (TMZ)

Candace Cameron Bure is only getting better with age. The Fuller House star, 40, is in the best shape of her life thanks to her commitment to working out. "I feel the most fit and strong that I've ever felt in my life," Bure tells PEOPLE. "What keeps me on track is that I want to feel good and have a long life with my husband [Valeri Bure, 42] and kids [daughter Natasha, 18, and sons Lev, 16, and Maksim, 15]." The actress' fitness routine depends on her filming schedule, but she makes sure to get a workout in whenever she can. "It can be anywhere from a 20-minute workout a couple of times a week, or an hour five times a week," she says. "If I am home and working on Fuller House, my schedule is more consistent, so I'll usually work out five days a week. But now I'm filming a Hallmark movie in Vancouver and my schedule is really tough as far as the amount of hours I work every day, so if I can squeeze in even 10 minutes of exercise here and 10 minutes of exercise there, that's what I'll do for the three weeks I'm filming." When Bure does have the time to fit in an hour workout, she loves working with her trainer Kira Stokes, who trains her via FaceTime now that Bure is no longer based in New York. "Our workouts incorporate strength training with cardio, plyo work and balance," says Bure. "What's so specific about Kira is the order of the moves that she does that complement one another, which really makes a huge difference in her workout." Stokes trains Bure using her signature Stoked Method. "The Stoked Method is a high-intensity training system with a focus on mindful functional flow of movement," Stokes tells PEOPLE. "With regards to training Candace, each circuit we complete during her workout is a highly curated combination of strength, cardio and core work. She jumps rope in between each circuit while I educate and demo her on the next circuit so she rarely stops moving. We end each session with signature Stoked fine-tuning work for the focus muscle groups of the workout, and tension abdominal work." Bure uses 3-lb. dumbbells for fine-tuning work, and 25-lb. or 30-lb. dumbbells for weight lifting. "We love using TRX, and then we do a lot with my own body weight too," she says. When Bure trains on her own, she'll have a jump rope on hand to squeeze in a couple of minutes of cardio whenever she can. She also mixes in moves she can do without any equipment. "I love doing air squats or jump squats, push-ups, jumping jacks, burpees, crunches -- all the basic stuff, but it's all you need to do to keep it toned," she says. "The great thing about Candace is she's a very self-motivated person," says Stokes. "She is so game for everything and she loves challenges." Bure says seeing her body transform is what keeps her motivated to stay on track with her workouts. "When I see muscles that are more defined that I hadn't seen before, it's exciting," she says. "I love a muscular figure. It feels like an accomplishment and it makes me feel strong and I love having a strong body. When you look better, you feel better. That keeps me motivated." In addition to working out, Cameron Bure credits her healthy diet with boosting her toned physique. "I eat a very plant and grain-based diet," she says. "I follow a more Mediterranean diet, so I eat lots of fresh vegetables and whole grains and fish. I don't eat dairy very often, and I've cut most of the sugar out of my diet -- I see the biggest effect from not eating as much sugar." While Bure has been open about struggling with bulimia when she was younger, she says she is long past that phase of her life and feels healthier than ever before. "It's something that I'm always aware of and that I do think about, but having been healthy for so many years, it's not something I have to think about on a daily basis," she says. "It's not something that I struggle with anymore. I really found my joy in fitness, and then as I get older I've just been fine-tuning my diet and I enjoy eating what makes my body feel the best." As she ages, Bure is focused on keeping her body properly fueled and healthy. "I feel a real sense of accomplishment about what my body can still do, and I want to keep it in shape and keep it strong for so many years that are ahead of me," she says. "You kind of take your body for granted when you're younger, so the older I get the prouder I am of the things I'm able to do with it." (People)

Jon Stewart's NEVER been confused for a Donald Trump supporter, but he strongly believes the media should show up for the President's first White House Correspondents' Dinner. It's become a big thing -- some reporters are pulling out of the annual event due to Trump warring with multiple media outlets. Jon was grabbing a slice at Famous Original Ray's Pizza when we got his take on the potential boycott. It's interesting because Jon hosted the WHCD back in '97, but he's also famously NOT down with Trump. He gave us one good reason why reporters should get over the tension and attend. Jon also had a great piece of advice for Trump's handshake game, which looks to have improved with Canadian PM Trudeau ... by about 13 seconds over the Japanese PM.

Margot Robbie just upped her cool chick factor by partying and dancing in a Georgia watering hole called Southern Comfort. Instant cool chick cred. Margot took a break from filming the Tonya Harding movie over the weekend outside Atlanta, and producers threw a get-together for the cast and crew. Margot kicked off her ice skates and put on her dancing shoes to hit the floor with her co-star Paul Walter Hauser. Paul plays Shawn Eckhardt, Tonya's bodyguard, and he's apparently pretty good on his feet too ... based on this video. Our sources say Margot and about 30 others sucked down pitchers of beer and cocktails. Not that it got too wild ... we're told Margot's real-life husband was there too. We don't blame him. (TMZ)

MTV EMAs to Return to London. First held in the British capital in 1996, the awards show will emanate from the U.K. for the sixth time. Viacom and MTV said Tuesday that London has been chosen to host the 24th annual MTV EMAs later this year. The show will air across MTV's TV, social and digital platforms live from The SSE Arena, Wembley on Sunday Nov. 12. First held in London in 1996, the MTV EMAs will emanate from the U.K. for the sixth time. Edinburgh (2003), Liverpool (2008), Belfast (2011) and Glasgow (2014) were the other British host cities in the past. "London is arguably the world's musical epicenter and it's both a huge privilege and opportunity to bring the MTV EMAs 2017 to the U.K.'s capital city," said David Lynn, CEO of Viacom International Media Networks. "The EMA creates an incredible buzz wherever it lands it; that will be amplified tenfold in London." The mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: "After two decades away, the MTV EMAs are returning to electrify the greatest city in the world once again. It promises to be an absolutely incredible evening, featuring some of the globe's top artists and watched by millions. London is the natural city to host one of the greatest musical shows on earth with our exceptional musical history, wealth of creative talent and outstanding venues-we're the entertainment capital of the world. Whether you're a musical superstar, Londoner or visitor to the city-London is Open to entertain you!" Bruce Gillmer, who executive produces the MTV EMAs and is executive vp, music, talent programming and events, MTV International, said: "The MTV EMAs are one of the biggest and most unforgettable nights in music globally. We anticipate this year's event in London will be even bigger and louder than ever before. The city's incredible musical heritage along with the local fan's robust energy will undoubtedly make this one killer show." (Billboard)

Ed Sheeran Reigns Supreme on Australia's Singles Chart. Ed Sheeran enters a fifth week at Nos. 1 and 2 on Australia's singles chart with his comeback tracks "Shape Of You" and "Castle On The Hill" (both Asylum/Warner) while homegrown slacker-rock trio Dune Rats snatch their first albums chart title. Sheeran extends his chart reign after quietly dropping into the country last week for a round of promotional activities, which included an open-air gig at the iconic Hanging Rock and a performance at the Sydney Opera House. Gold Coast singer-songwriter Amy Shark lurks just behind Sheeran with "Adore" (Wonderlick/Sony), which is unchanged at No. 3. "Adore" is now platinum-certified (70,000 units) after nabbing No. 2 on last month's Triple J Hottest 100 countdown, behind Flume's winner "Never Be Like You" (Future Classic). Coming in at No. 4 on this week's ARIA Singles Chart is Zayn & Taylor Swift's "I Don't Wanna Live Forever" (Republic/Universal) and The Chainsmokers' "Paris" (Columbia/Sony) completes the top 5. Dune Rats celebrate a first national No. 1 on the ARIA Albums Chart with their second full-length studio record, The Kids Will Know It's Bullshit (Warner), which features the Hottest 100-placing tracks "Bullshit" (at No. 33) and "Scott Green" (No. 34).

Rag 'N' Bone Man Powering to Albums Chart Title in U.K. Rag 'N' Bone Man, winner of the 2017 Brits Critics Choice Award, is fulfilling the faith shown in him with an impressive showing on the mid-week U.K. sales charts. The homegrown singer-songwriter is blowing away the competition on the U.K. albums chart and he's about to bust Ed Sheeran's record-breaking run at Nos. 1 and 2 on the U.K. singles chart. The Sussex-born Rag 'N' Bone Man (real name Rory Graham) is dominating the field with his debut Human, which has the clocked up more than 70,000 combined sales to head the Official Chart Update. Remarkably, the album is outselling the rest of this week's top 20 combined. Human leads nine new albums cruising into the top 40, including three poised for top 10 debuts: Thunder's Rip it Up (No. 2 via Ear Music), Nines' One Foot Out (No. 4 via XL) and Devlin's The Devil In (No. 10 via Devlin Music). Sheeran's "Shape of You" (Asylum) is still the best-selling single at the midway point of the chart week, though the title track to Rag 'N' Bone Man's debut album rises to No. 2. Sheeran's "Shape Of You" and "Castle On The Hill" have ruled the official weekly chart for the past five weeks, setting a new mark for the longest-ever run in the top two of the U.K. chart (besting Justin Bieber's four-week stint at Nos. 1 and 2 with "Sorry" and "Love Yourself" in 2015). "Human" will break Sheeran's stranglehold of the survey if stays at No. 2 at week's end as "Castle On The Hill" falls to No. 3 on the midweek chart. The top five is respectively rounded out by Jax Jones featuring Raye's "You Don't Know Me" (Polydor) and Zayn & Taylor Swift's I Don't Wanna Live Forever (RCA/Republic), from the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack. Katy Perry could score the week's highest singles chart debut with "Chained To The Rhythm," which features Skip Marley and starts at No. 6 on midweek sales data. "Chained To The Rhythm" dropped last Friday and is the first release from the U.S. pop singer's forthcoming fourth album. Sheeran, Rag N Bone Man and Katy Perry should stay high in the U.K. charts for some weeks to come. They're all booked to perform at the Feb. 22 Brit Awards in London. (Billboard)

Can You Spot All the Aladdin Easter Eggs in Moana? Audiences were introduced to a whole new world when Moana premiered in theaters on Nov. 23, 2016. Although the world was new, the animated film also featured a few Aladdin in-jokes. E! News was given an exclusive look at just a few of the nods to Disney's 1992 animated movie. "The talented artists at Walt Disney Animation Studios love to hide inside jokes and references to other movies, called Easter eggs," Auli'i Cravalho, who voices the title character, says in a featurette.

So, grab your fishhooks and let's see if you can catch some of these hidden treasures before they end up in the underworld." Blink and you might miss hidden gems, like the lamp and the magic carpet from 1992's Aladdin. Ron Clements and John Musker, who co-directed both films, are also buried in the scenery.

'Bethany' Trailer: Shannen Doherty and Tom Green Bring Horror Home. James Cullen Bressack directed the project about a young woman haunted by her childhood imaginary friend. Tom Green and Shannen Doherty are proving why sometimes home is not where the heart is in the first trailer for Bethany. The horror project is from director James Cullen Bressack and centers on a young woman named Claire (Stefanie Estes) who moves back to her childhood home only to be haunted by her imaginary friend from when she was a child. Zack Ward, who co-wrote the film with Bressack, stars as Claire's husband, with Green playing her psychiatrist and Doherty playing her late mother. Kenneth Gust, Ace Underhill, Doherty, Shant Jordan and Shahen Jordan produced alongside Bressack and Ward. In 2015, Green spoke with Heat Vision from the set of the film. "I've obviously done a lot of outrageous characters and ridiculous things in my TV show, and this is a more serious role," he said. Uncork'd is releasing the project on VOD and in theaters on April 7. (Hollywood Reporter)

Berlin: Authorized Notorious B.I.G. Doc in the Works. The Malloys will direct 'Notorious B.I.G.: One More Chance,' which will feature all of the legendary hip-hop artist's music. An authorized Notorious B.I.G. documentary is officially underway. Tentatively titled Notorious B.I.G.: One More Chance, the project from Submarine Entertainment and ByStorm Films will be directed by The Malloys (Emmett Malloy and Brendan Malloy). It will be made in collaboration with his mother, Voletta Wallace, and the estate of Notorious B.I.G., and feature all of the music of the legendary hip-hop artist, who died in 1997. David Koh, Dan Braun, Wayne Barrow and Keith Miller will produce the film, with Wallace, Stanley Buchthal, Josh Taekman, Mark Pitts and Josh Braun as executive producers. Submarine and ByStorm Films will serve as co-producers. Submarine -- which has worked on recent music docs Searching for Sugarman, 20 Feet From Stardom and Nas: Time Is Illmatic, among others -- will be representing worldwide rights at this year's Berlin Film Market. The doc will chart the rise and lasting impact of Biggie (born Christopher George Latore Wallace), who only recorded two albums before he died in a drive-by shooting at age 24. "It brings so much joy to my heart that my son Christopher's music has made such an impact on the music community and his stories have positively inspired so many young men and women over the years and still influencing the youth all over the world today," said Voletta Wallace in a statement.

Rose Leslie Is Breaking Toes and Keeping Secrets on The Good Fight. Rose Leslie has been on two huge shows in the United States -- Downton Abbey and Game of Thrones -- but for the first time she's dipping her toe into an American-shot drama with The Good Fight, the spinoff to The Good Wife. Oh, and that toe she's dipping in may be broken. "No, I never did [imagine she'd end up with a broken toe on The Good Fight]," she admitted to E! News during a set visit. "This was purely down to me. This was my kind of like ignorance in thinking that I could turn and pivot on a little dime... Of course when I attempted it on camera, I then completely whacked it into a table." And get this -- when Leslie was playing Ygritte on Game of Thrones, she didn't injure herself at all. "At least then I was on a mountaintop and would then have an excuse of falling flat on my face, but no, I didn't actually have any injuries shooting that -- luckily," she said. When viewers meet Leslie's Maia Rindell, she's fresh off taking the bar exam and joining Diane Lockhart's (Christine Baranski) firm. Diane's her godmother, somebody Maia has always looked up to, Leslie said. "I like to think that she is, from the beginning, wanting to pave her own way in this rather brutal corporate law world. And, yeah, no, man, she's got real kind of gravitas," she said. "She's a fighter." Maia is going to have to be a fighter. By the end of the episode she's ostracized after her father is arrested for his part in a financial scam that also happens to wipe out her godmother Diane's savings, putting a pause on her retirement and making her into a pariah of sorts. Just like Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) before them. Speaking of Alicia Florrick, Leslie is a self-professed Good Wife fan, so she's jonesing for an appearance from you know who. "Oh my days. Well, I think it's obvious," she said. "I think Alicia would be great if she came back." Make sure you watch the video above to hear about keeping secrets, which Leslie and The Good world are both quite good at. The Good Fight premieres Sunday, Feb. 19 at 8 p.m. on CBS with another episode dropping on CBS All Access, CBS's streaming platform. (Eonline)

Jasper Confesses His Love for Princess Eleanor in This Adorable Scene From The Royals Season Finale. Will Jaspenor finally get their happily ever after? That's the question on Jasper (Tom Austen) and Sarah Alice's (Miley Locke) minds in this exclusive sneak peek from Sunday's season three finale of The Royals. After learning Princess Eleanor (Alexandra Park) plans to leave for six months, the two buddies are obviously discouraged while discussing the idea of fairy tale endings. "You know what? I think that only happens in storybooks," Jasper tells Sarah Alice. "So, they were lying then about princesses and happily ever after?" she asks disappointed. "No, they're not lying," Jasper clarifies. "I mean some of it's not actually factual. There is golden hair and clear heels, but different kind of girls wear them." LOL! He continues, "Anyway, happily ever after is real. You should believe in that, OK?" Sarah Alice reluctantly promises to keep the faith before putting Jasper on the spot. "Do you love her?" she wonders. "Yeah, I do," he confesses. "You should probably tell her that," Sarah Alice advises. Uh, duh! (Eonline)

Did the right person win The New Celebrity Apprentice? (Eonline)

JoJo Fletcher Reacts to Rachel Lindsay Being Named the Next Bachelorette: "I Thought There Was No Other Choice." JoJo Fletcher is ready to pass on the roses. Rachel Lindsay, currently a contestant on Nick Viall's season of The Bachelor, is set to be announced as the star of The Bachelorette's upcoming 13th season on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday night, and she's already got the support of the last Bachelorette. "I thought there was no other choice but Rachel and she's a Dallas girl, so we're going to keep that trend rolling," JoJo exclusively told E! News at 102.7 KIISFM's Pick Your Purse Party at The Bungalow Huntington Beach. And Becca Tilley, who starred on Chris Soules and Ben Higgins' seasons of The Bachelor, completely agreed with her BFF, adding, "I don't think from Nick's season there was anyone else that I thought it would be." Of the 31-year-old lawyer from Dallas, JoJo, 26, said, "I just love that she's a good age. She's very smart. She handles herself well. She's super confident and it's nice that they are mixing it up, so props to them." Rachel is set to become the franchise's first black lead in its 33-season history, with JoJo saying, "I think we're all ready for it." Becca continued, "I think progression only happens when you kind of push the boundaries and you make people get used to something or get comfortable with something." After JoJo found love with Jordan Rodgers, who she is still engaged to, last season, Becca said Rachel "has some big shoes to follow." After thanking her best friend, who is dating Bachelor Nation alum Robert Graham, JoJo said, "I think it will be very good. She was my favorite, her and Vanessa [Grimaldi]." In an usual twist, ABC is announcing Rachel as the next Bachelorette while she is still competing on the show, similar to what they did when they revealed Nick would be the next Bachelor while he was still on Bachelor in Paradise. The Bachelor airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on ABC. (Eonline)

Move Over, Bromance! The Voice Season 12 Is All About Alicia Keys & Gwen Stefani's Girl Crush. Get ready to feel the love, The Voice fans. As we impatiently await the season 12 premiere of our favorite music competition, NBC's graciously released a sneak peek at the season's coaching line-up, exclusive to E! News, and for the first time ever, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine's bromance just might find itself overshadowed! And not by Blake and his real-life girlfriend Gwen Stefani, returning this season for her third after two cycles off, either. "I am crazy excited about Gwen joining this season. That's my friend," returning coach Alicia Keys gushed about the platinum blonde pop star. "She is such a beautiful soul, and I love her style and her kindness and her sweetness. She's a very, very genuine person." And the feeling is more than mutual. "Alicia is unbelievably inspiring. She has a spirit and an energy to her that just has an impact, and she's just full of goodness," Gwen said, returning the favor. "There's been a lot of love and lots of laughing." Naturally, this left one half of America's favorite bromance feeling just a wee bit threatened. "Hey Blake, we should try that," Adam joked. "Be like, 'Blake, you're so amazing and beautiful and talented and handsome!' We don't go that kind of stuff. We do the opposite." All that said, the love is very real amongst all four coaches, giving the season a vibe unlike any other, Blake teased. l"No matter how much grief we give each other on television, there's a lot of love between the four of us," the country crooner said. "This combination of coaches is not like any other. There's a bond here that is unexplainable." Unexplainable? Maybe. Highly watchable? Definitely. The Voice returns for season 12 on Monday, Feb. 27 at 8 p.m. on NBC. (Eonline)

Rachel Lindsay To Be Named Next Bachelorette -- and the Franchise's First Black Lead Ever. It seems that we won't have to wait until after the final rose to find out who the new star of the Bachelor franchise is. According to multiple reports, Rachel Lindsay will be named the next Bachelorette, and the announcement will be made on Jimmy Kimmel Live, despite the fact that six women -- including Lindsay -- remain on this season of The Bachelor. The 31 year-old attorney from Dallas, Texas will be the first black Bachelorette or Bachelor in the series' history. Viewers have been calling her out as the next Bachelorette since the season began, but the announcement is not usually made this early on in the season, and especially not before the contestant in question has been eliminated from the current season. Reality Steve first broke the news of Lindsay's casting, and of the announcement on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss has been teasing an "historic" announcement on Twitter for weeks now, and revealed on Sunday that Kimmel would make the announcement during his Monday night show. ABC also broke tradition with their last announcement of Nick Viall as the Bachelor by making that reveal before he broke up with the woman he was dating on Bachelor in Paradise, and by choosing someone who wasn't on the most recent season. ABC has not yet returned a request for comment. The Bachelor airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on ABC, and Jimmy Kimmel Live airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. on ABC. (Eonline)
