Abby Wambach and Glennon Doyle Melton have officially tied the knot! Melton, 41, took to Instagram to share a photo of their wedding day, which took place Sunday. The two shared a kiss as Wambach, 36, wore a red velvet suit jacket, while Melton donned a silver bejeweled dress. In a second post on Monday, Melton added a photo of Wambach wearing a black hoodie with the words "Christian Mommy Blogger's Wife" on it. "My beloveds- please never give up on love," Melton wrote in the caption. "Life could surprise the hell out of you. Trust me- you might just wake up one morning and find yourself smackdab in the middle of heaven. I love my wife. LOVE WINS." The couple confirmed they were dating in November 2016, with the Christian blogger revealing the news of her "new love" on her Facebook page. "Feels like the world could use all the love it can get right now," she wrote. "So today, I'm going to share with you my new love." The relationship news comes three months after Melton announced her divorce from husband Craig Melton, and two months after Wambach announced that she and her wife of three years, Sarah Huffman, would be divorcing following an April DUI arrest that forced the soccer star to confront her struggles with substance abuse. The two announced their engagement in February. Melton has long been an outspoken advocate for same-sex marriage. "Figuring out my stance on homosexuality felt like a life and death decision," she wrote in a 2013 post on her blog Momastery. "I know my Jesus, I love Him, and I think if he needed me to believe that homosexuality was a sin, He would have mentioned it." She added that she hoped that her coming out would help her three children, son Chase and daughters Tish and Amma, feel emboldened to be truthful with themselves and others. Melton wrote, "When Craig and I sat them down to tell them about Abby I started by saying: 'In our family, we live and tell the truth about who we are no matter what, and then love each other through it -- and I'm about to show you how that's done.'"

Harry Styles' new girlfriend pleads for his fans to be kind to her. "All I want is to share beautiful food with you all". We'd been wondering what's been going on with Harry Styles' love life as of late (last we heard he had been single for a while) - and last week we got our answer when it was reported he'd been secretly dating blogger and model Tess Ward. Now Tess, 27, has pleaded with Harry's fans to be nice to her after receiving a rise in bad reviews of her recipe book The Naked Diet on Amazon. The founder of popular food blog The Yes Chef posted a picture on Instagram, with the caption: "Brunch for dinner is never a bad idea on the weekend! ??Also for everyone following and messaging me, I am thankful but please be kind to me. All I want is to share beautiful food with you all." The Sun reported that the pair were introduced by mutual friends, and apparently really hit it off. A source told the paper: "They've been on a number of dates while Harry has been in London and he's already introduced Tess to some of his close friends including his personal stylist Lou Teasdale." They continued: "This really seems different to Harry's past relationships as Harry genuinely is besotted with Tess and doesn't want to risk messing this one up." Harry and Tess have been spotted out driving in London and she was also seen leaving his secret gig last weekend, fueling the rumors about their relationship. She's even been seen out wearing one of his favorite Gucci shirts - it must be love (British Glamour)

Brad Pitt Assures Fans "I've Got Nothing to Hide" Following Angelina Jolie Divorce. Brad Pitt continues to be an open book for his fans and followers. Less than two weeks after making front-page headlines for his revealing interview with GQ Style, the Hollywood actor is speaking out about his life following a public divorce from Angelina Jolie. In a new interview with the Associated Press, the A-lister discussed his present state of mind where he couldn't help but get personal. According to the outlet, Brad said he's spending his time by "keeping the ship afloat" and "figuring out the new configuration of our family." ''Kids are everything," he said of the six children he shares with Angelina. "Kids are your life. They're taking all the focus, as they should anyway." "I'm not suicidal or something," he added while chuckling. "There's still much beauty in the world and a lot of love. And a lot of love to be given. It's all right. It's just life." Eight months after Angelina filed for divorce, Brad spoke out in an in-depth interview to GQ Style. In the issue, the War Machine star owned up to his shortcomings and revealed what he's doing to become a better father. "You know, I just started therapy," he shared. "I love it. I love it. I went through two therapists to get the right one." And while plenty of rumors surfaced about what led to the end of his marriage to Angelina, Brad says so much of it is and was inaccurate. "I avoid so much of it. I just let it go. It's always been a long-run game for me," he explained. "As far as out there, I hope my intentions and work will speak for themselves." It's not fun to have "things drug out in public," but Brad said he's far more concerned about his kids "being subjected to it." "Kids are so delicate. They absorb everything," he explained. "They need to have their hand held and things explained. They need to be listened to. When I get in that busy work mode, I'm not hearing. I want to be better at that." As for how long Brad's candid remarks will last, your guess is as good as ours. For now, the actor is speaking his truth even if it's not as glamorous as Hollywood appears. "I've got no secrets. I've got nothing to hide," Brad shared with the AP. "We're human and I find the human condition very interesting. If we're not talking about it, then we're not getting better." (Eonline)

It was and will forever be, one of the happiest days of my life," she shared before adding, "This photo was taken today, 5/15/2017. A month after what should have been our big wedding ceremony." King continued, "My heart is broken. My soul aches. I am lost. He is the greatest love of my life. He is my best friend. As we separate, and attempt to find our footing through life, all I can hope for us is that we both find happiness within ourselves. I love you. You'll always have my heart. You'll always be my first husband." While receiving well wishes from fans around the world, King also asked for privacy during this undeniably difficult time.

Katharine McPhee and David Foster Spark Romance Rumors After PDA-Filled Dinner Date. Let the romance rumors begin! As the temperatures warmed up in Southern California this past weekend, E! News has exclusively learned that David Foster and Katharine McPhee met up at Nobu in Malibu Friday evening for a dinner date. According to a source, the pair arrived around 8:30 p.m. and was seated at a private, sea-front table in a corner. "David and Katharine were very intimate during their dinner," our insider shared. "David was seen grabbing Katharine's face and kissing her cheek several times. Katharine was doing the same to David's face and they were acting as if they were a couple." The famous duo shared two bottles of red wine and ordered an array of various sushi dishes before leaving the restaurant together in an Uber less than two hours later. "By the end of the date, Katharine sat on David's side of the table and cuddled him with a blanket," our source added. This isn't the first time David has faced romance rumors following his divorce from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Hadid. At the end of 2016, the record producer received headlines after stepping out with supermodel Christie Brinkley. In fact, the pair was spotted leaving The Stinking Rose restaurant in Beverly Hills last week. A rep for the supermodel, however, would tell People they are just friends. In a recent interview, David opened up about how he was doing following the end of his most recent marriage. "This is the first time in my adult life that I've been single," he shared with Vanity Fair back in January. "It's a very powerful feeling, but I'm not used to it." He added, "Someone said to me recently that you need to be very careful about the person you pick to spend the rest of your life with. It's kind of weird that I'm hearing that now and thinking, 'Oh, right.'" (Eonline)

Liam Payne Talks ''Internal Battle'' Against Cheryl Cole Over Naming Their Son Bear, and What Made Him Come Around. Liam Payne knows his son's name is unique, and that's exactly why he loves it. The One Direction singer-turned-solo artist explained the origin of son Bear Payne's name during a Total Access radio interview, which he said was decided upon by mom Cheryl Cole. "It was an internal battle," Liam reflected. "I wanted a more traditional name and she wanted a name that was more unusual. "The reason she chose Bear was because Bear is a name that when you leave a room, you won't forget." "And I like that," the U.K. native decided eventually. Cheryl and Liam welcomed their first child together in mid-March, ultimately confirming the little guy's name after celeb adventurer Bear Grylls shared a congratulatory message to the new parents. "You know what? Now he is Bear," Liam, 23, added. "When I look at him, he's just Bear. At first I wasn't really having it. I was like, 'I'm not really sure. I don't really understand.' Now I look at him and he's Bear. You become your name as you get older anyway." And as Payne continues to adjust to fatherhood (and his son's name), he's also gearing up to make a big splash in the music world. Fans can expect a solo single from the artist to drop May 19 called "Strip That Down," and over the weekend he reunited with bandmate Niall Horan in Los Angeles. We're happy to be the bearer of this great news: Liam is about to experience his biggest year yet! (Eonline)

Miley Cyrus Reveals Katy Perry Is Her Oldest Friend in Hollywood. Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry are battling it out on the pop charts with "Malibu" and "Bon Appetit," respectively -- and that's the only place fans will see them pitted against each other. "She's been a friend of mine for a really long time," Miley, 24, told WKTU's Cubby and Carolina Bermudez Tuesday. "We were actually just realizing the other day that next year, we'll have been friends for 10 years. I think that's my friend that I've known the longest. Which is really, really weird!" And, according to the pop princess, "that's like a really long time" in L.A. Miley and Katy's friendship dates back to 2008. "When she came out with 'I Kissed a Girl,' I was doing the Hannah Montana movie, and I heard her on the radio. They said, 'Who did you write that about?' She said me!" she recalled, adding that she was on her dad's four-wheeler at the time -- "this is how hillbilly we are" -- when Katy said that. "I screamed and started freaking out, and then she asked me to go to the VMAs with her. That's when I started doing my whole VMA controversy. I was like, 'I'll go with Katy Perry!'" Miley's mom, Tish Cyrus, was a little leery about that. "She didn't want me to go by myself. You know -- like stranger danger," she said. "So, my mom went with me in the limo with Katy Perry." According to Miley, Tish "just thought it was cool that I got to go with Katy Perry." "So, that's how we met," Miley said, "and we just stayed friends." Miley was also asked about possibly starring as Madonna in the unauthorized biopic Blond Ambition. "I think that's a huge, huge compliment," she said. "I don't know. If she asked me, I couldn't turn down Madonna. Paris Jackson looks too much like Madonna. I'm the wrong pick." The singer has been making the rounds to promote "Malibu" before her 2017 Billboard Music Awards performance Sunday. She's eager to sing her latest single, but there's one song she'd like to retire: "Wrecking Ball." Not that anyone needs to worry: she knows it's a fan favorite. "I'll do it, but I don't love it. It's when you're so stoked about something and then you have to sing a song that bums you out," Miley said. "And I'll never live down when I licked a sledgehammer." (Eonline)

Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants Cast Reunite for Amber Tamblyn's Directorial Debut. Hollywood friends come and go, but a sisterhood is forever. It's hard to believe that it's been close to nine years since the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants cast was together on the big screen. But during Monday night's New York premiere of Paint It Black, fans of the movie franchise and book series were treated to a special reunion as several cast members stepped out to support Amber Tamblyn. As the actress celebrated her directorial debut, Blake Lively and Alexis Bledel were by her side as they posed for pictures outside the Museum of Modern Art. If that wasn't to get fans shaking in their pants, social media users caught America Ferrera joining in on the fun during the film's official after party. This certainly isn't the first -- or the last -- time the talented cast has hung out and supported each other ever since The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 was released back in 2008. From wedding ceremonies and double dates to afternoons at brunch and plays, these group of ladies have consistently proved their real-life friendship is still going strong. In fact, there is still plenty of hope that a third movie in the franchise could be coming. "It's an idea and a conversation," America shared with E! News' Marc Malkin back in March. "I think it would be amazing. The sisterhood is still well and alive. I love my girls. We're very much a part of each other's lives and if the movie happens it would be a great thing." Until then, the cast is more than happy to support Amber's new movie based on the popular novel by Janet Fitch. And yes, they may just be proving one of Sisterhood's greatest quotes: "Not everyone you love is going to leave you." Paint It Black opens in select theaters this Friday. (Eonline)

'Straight Outta Compton' star arrested for 'beating up' security guard. The actor who portrayed rap mogul Suge Knight in the movie "Straight Outta Compton" was taken straight to jail after a cop saw him beat up a security guard at a tony Miami resort, police said. The officer saw Richard M. Taylor, 40, "pick the victim up and slam him to the ground" after the Marenas Beach Resort called for help, saying the actor was in the lobby menacing the guard, according to a copy of the report obtained by The Post. Taylor –- who played the infamous rapper now awaiting trial on a murder charge -- was charged with misdemeanor battery and is being held at Miami-Dade jail. A worker who answered the phone at the hotel told The Post the security guard was roughed up but "will live." The incident started when Taylor-who has been posting Instagram shots of his beach vacation under his handle r.marcostaylor-was told by the guard to take his foot off a table in the lobby, police said. The Plainfield, NJ, resident told the guard to "leave him alone," according to the report, but the guard told the front desk to call the police. Taylor stayed in his chair for about five minutes, then got up, walked over the guard and pushed him in the chest, according to surveillance video. By the time cops arrived, the two had to be physically separated, according to the report. On his IMDB page, Taylor lists himself as an actor, stuntman, fitness trainer and martial-arts instructor. Aside from his role in the 2015 critically acclaimed "Straight Outta Compton," Taylor also appears in the Netflix show "Luke Cage" and the upcoming flick "Baby Driver." (PageSix)

Jimmy Kimmel Returning to Host the 2018 Oscars. Jimmy Kimmel had so much fun hosting the 2017 Oscars he's doing it again. Kimmel will host the 90th Academy Awards on March 4, 2018. Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd will produce, Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs announced Tuesday morning. "Jimmy, Mike and Jennifer are truly an Oscar Dream Team," Boone Isaacs said. "Mike and Jennifer produced a beautiful show that was visually stunning. And Jimmy proved, from his opening monologue all the way through a finale we could never have imagined, that he is one our finest hosts in Oscar history." More than 32 million viewers tuned in to watch the 2017 ceremony -- which included a Best Picture mix-up between La La Land and Moonlight. "Hosting the Oscars was a highlight of my career and I am grateful to Cheryl, Dawn and the Academy for asking me to return to work with two of my favorite people, Mike De Luca and Jennifer Todd," Kimmel told E! News in a statement. "If you think we screwed up the ending this year, wait until you see what we have planned for the 90th anniversary show!" Kimmel later tweeted about his return, writing, "Thanks to @TheAcademy for asking me to host The #Oscars again (assuming I opened the right envelope)." "It's not often you get two chances to have a once-in-a-lifetime experience and even more rare to be handed the keys to a party 90 years in the making," De Luca and Todd added. "We always thought the idea that anything can happen on the Oscars was a cliche until we lived it." Next year's ceremony will be held at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center and will be televised live on ABC at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT. The 2018 Oscars also will be televised live in more than 225 countries and territories worldwide. "Our Oscars team this year delivered a show that hit every high note. Jimmy brought back the essence and light touch of the greatest hosts of Oscars' past," Academy CEO Dawn Hudson said. "Mike and Jennifer's love of movies is infectious and touched every aspect of the show. This is the perfect team to lead us into the ninth decade." "After just one year, we can't imagine anyone else hosting The Oscars. Jimmy's skillful command of the stage is invaluable on a night when anything can happen -- and does," said Channing Dungey, president of ABC Entertainment. "With Mike and Jennifer at the helm, we're ready for another unforgettable show that will dazzle, delight and, most importantly, honor 90 years of Hollywood's most prestigious award." (Eonline)

He already has five Grammys, an Oscar, a Golden Globe and 16 American Music Awards -- and now Lionel Richie has an honorary doctorate degree! The legendary music icon was honored at Boston's Agganis Arena on Saturday alongside Lucinda Williams, Todd Rundgren, Shin Joong Hyun, and Neil Portnow, president and CEO of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences. "For his contributions to contemporary culture, his humanitarian efforts, and the joy his music brings to so many, it is my pleasure to present Berklee's honorary doctorate of music to Lionel Richie," Berklee President Roger H. Brown said in his introduction for the 67-year-old singer/songwriter. Pharrell Williams sent kind words to Richie, which Brown read: "Lionel is the ultimate musical alchemist! Any time you hear a Lionel Richie song, it takes you back to the moment you first heard it." Brown also shared comments from Stevie Wonder, David Foster and Quincy Jones. "You are in the prime seat to tell the world what they need to know," Richie said to the graduating student artists. Multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, and record producer Rundgren delivered the class of 2017 commencement address. The night before, Richie joined graduating students on stage at the annual commencement concert to perform his anthemic charity hit, "We Are the World." "I wish Michael Jackson would have been with me to share that moment, because what I saw on your faces was the enthusiasm, the passion, the drive, the love, and the dreams," Richie told the audience.

Prince William Visits With Young Cancer Patient Who Jokes He's ''Too Old'' for Her to Marry. We couldn't help but smile over new photos and videos of Prince William's latest visit with children at a south London hospital. The Duke of Cambridge traveled to the children's Oak Center cancer unit at the Royal Marsden's Sutton hospital on Tuesday and got to meet one sweet 6-year-old patient named Daisy Wood. In fact, Daisy had been watching a movie about princesses just before William walked into her room, and while she allowed him to strap on her name tag for the meeting, she realized the royal just wasn't her type. Her father joked, "She did say William was a little old for her to marry." LOL! Still, Daisy found herself a little tongue-tied upon her visit with the royal -- who is the president of the hospital -- but her father was so grateful for his support. "It's particularly nice he's come around," Mr. Wood said. "It shows he's interested in the Royal Marsden and the patients -- it gives a boost to everyone." He added, "And being a dad with two young children, you can see how he relates very well to the children." William also got to spend time with 11-year-old Zac, a big royals fan who suffers from a brain tumor. "Zak has loved the royal family since he was little. He was at that age when all the events were being staged for William and Kate [Middleton]'s wedding and he was hooked," his mother revealed. Of course, Zak couldn't help but ask about William's two children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte. "We were talking about George, and William said George was noisy and charging around the place," Zak's mother said. "And Charlotte has recently had her birthday, so Zak said happy birthday to Charlotte. This was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Zak." The Duke of Cambridge visited with several other patients and even sat in on an art lesson with a group of children. He was also reunited with radiotherapy aid Fiona Bragg, who took him under her wing when he spent a day shadowing staff at the Royal Marsden in 2005 -- two years before he became president. Afterward, he was shown the multi-million dollar MR Linac scanner, which combines radiotherapy treatment with traditional imaging and has the potential to allow tumors to be targeted precisely in real time -- the first of its kind in the country. Needless to say, William certainly has a lot to be proud of when it comes to the successful hospital! (Eonline)

Taylor Swift is out of hiding, and all it took to draw her out in public was a trip to see her mom. Taylor hopped a PJ to Nashville this weekend for Mother's Day. She arrived on Saturday, and stayed through Sunday. Looks like it was a pretty casual family weekend ... based on her wardrobe. It's the first time we've seen T-Swift out since she performed at a Super Bowl weekend concert. It's unclear why she's been underground for 3 months. She caught a lot of flak for her feud with Kanye & Kim last year -- and might be letting that die down. Fans hope she's just off working on a new album. Whatever the reason ... good to see her back and smiling. (TMZ)

Angelina Jolie celebrated Mother's Day evening on Sunday without her brood of six or estranged husband Brad Pitt. Jolie -- who is in the process of divorcing Pitt -- celebrated the holiday with a one-on-one dinner with her son Pax, 13. The duo were spotted at Tao Asian Bistro in Los Angeles, and we're told Jolie was in a spiffy black cocktail dress. "She was in a great mood. She chatted a little with the staff, but was very focused on Pax," a spy said, adding that during their meal, "She saw a geisha-shaped chopstick rest that read, 'Stolen from Tao' and she started cracking up. They were having a great time. She seemed happy." (Page Six)

The home Hayden Panettiere was living in when she was breaking into showbiz as a child star is now on the market for $1.75 million. The crib's in Palisades, New York ... a ritzy suburban enclave where Angelina Jolie grew up, and stars like Bill Murray, Diane Sawyer and Al Pacino have also lived. Hayden's folks bought the 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath home in 1995. It sits on a quaint suburban lot, surrounded by trees and it's just a short walk away from the Hudson River. Interesting timing on the sale ... Hayden's parents went through a nasty 8-year divorce that finally ended last April. It's unclear whether mom or dad gets the dough from the house. It's still registered in both their names. Fun fact: When her folks bought this place, Hayden was playing Sarah Roberts on "One Life to Live" ... at the age of 6! (TMZ)

Bravo Announces New Scripted TV Series -- About Anna Wintour's Feud With Tina Brown! But who will play Anna?!?! That's really all we care about now that it's been announced a Feud-like TV show about Anna Wintour and fellow powerhouse editor Tina Brown is in the works at Bravo. All That Glitters will track the rise and rivalry of Wintour and Brown during the 1990s, when both were beginning their ascent at Vogue and Vanity Fair and The New Yorker, respectively. The six-hour series is based on the biography of Si Newhouse by Thomas Maier, who will also serve as producer. Casting is yet to be announced. A press release stated: "All That Glitters presents the true story of the behind the scenes rivalry, relationship and remarkable ascent of pop-culture icons Tina Brown and Anna Wintour. As both bold and driven women fight their way to the top of a male-dominated industry driven by greed and betrayal, they each find new paths to change the world around them -- Tina, through the intersection of high-culture and celebrity, and Anna with an instinct for high fashion and emerging talent." Though Brown is formidable, we kind of think La Wintour won this one, considering she's pretty much a household name and was recently named a Dame by the freakin' Queen of England. Sorry, Tina.

Kim Kardashian's assistant reveals ALL her secrets. Is Stephanie Shepherd superhuman? She must be... Kim Kardashian's assistant, Stephanie Shepherd, has opened up about what it's like to be the right hand woman of America's most famous celebrity. In an intimate interview with Refinery29, Shepherd, who has been working for Kardashian since 2013 and was recently promoted to COO of Kardashian West Brands, spoke about how she landed the role, the period after the Paris Robbery and what it was like being on call at Kanye and Kim's 2014 wedding. She revealed what it's like going for a job interview with Kim: "She had no makeup on and was in her sweats, super pregnant with North. She was just like, 'Look, I need help, Robin [Antin] loves you and says great things about you; this is what I need. Can you do it?' And I was like, 'OK, sure, I can do that -- and if I can't, I'll figure it out!' Meanwhile in my head, I was so nervous." Speaking of the Florence nuptials, she said: "I didn't even get to watch the ceremony because I was also filming -- I often producer-cam the more personal moments for the show, when they don't want full-on cameras around -- so I was filming everyone getting ready." "Caitlyn lost her suit, so I had to locate it; all the girls are getting ready, we're getting Kim together, we're in this castle; Kanye is down rearranging the floral arrangements and all this stuff, all while I'm trying to film." Sounds stressful, right? Shepherd, who is in her late 20s and close to all of the family, is obviously unflappable, being plunged into unexpected territory after Kim was held at gunpoint in Paris last year. "It was terrifying. At the time, I had to hold it together and make sure everything was getting handled, and that we could get Kim home as quickly and safely as possible," she said. "The night of the robbery, Kourtney and I were out, we were a little drunk, so when everything happened, we rushed home and sobered up real quick. We didn't sleep that entire night. I was so busy handling stuff." Can't be an easy job, can it? (British Glamour)

Kylie Jenner is living life on the edge in Beverly Hills just for a little while ... but for a lot of cash. Sources close to Kylie tell TMZ she's renting a mansion in Bev Hills while she gets work done on her $12 mil Hidden Hills home. The new pad rents for $125k/month ... and is currently on the market for $35 million. The price tag is certainly justified -- the place oozes luxury -- sitting on a cliff, gorgeous views with 5 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms thrown in for good measure. Not to mention the pro chef's kitchen, big screen theater ... and a library with a bar! The Agency repped both sides of the deal ... and James Harris from The Agency who also appears on "Million Dollar Listing" repped Kylie. The freakin' life of Kylie. (TMZ)

Here's What Happens to Those Stunning Bachelor Engagement Rings Once the Couples Split. The Bachelor's Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell may have ended, but diamonds are forever. The news that the couple was splitting may have shocked Bachelor nation and fans near and far, but the question that most presents itself after an engagement ends is: who gets the ring? The two got engaged on television in front of millions back in 2016 and then let cameras follow their love story on Freeform's show Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After? Well, we now know that didn't exactly go as planned. At the time of the romantic proposal, however, Higgins got down on bended knee and asked the blonde beauty to marry him with a stunning 4.25-carat, platinum square-cut and halo-style diamond Neil Lane engagement ring. The ring was said to be worth an estimated $95,000 and was reportedly one of the biggest Bachelor blings to date. Back in November of last year, the two announced that they had called off their wedding but that they were actively working on their relationship. So, what exactly goes down when Bachelor couples announce their split? Well, a source tells E! News that there's generally a window given in which the ring needs to be returned to the producers on the show. From there, the ring is delivered to the jewelry designer himself. Earlier Monday, the exes released the following joint statement to People to announce their breakup: "It is with heavy hearts that we announce our decision to go our separate ways. We feel fortunate for all the time we had together, and will remain friends with much love and respect for one another. We wish nothing but the best for each other, and ask for your support and understanding at this time." (Eonline)

During the Q&A portion of the annual beauty pageant, the Washington, D.C. winner was asked whether she considered affordable health care for all United States citizens a right or a privilege. "I'm definitely going to say it's a privilege," she answered Sunday night. "As a government employee, I am granted health care and I see firsthand that for one to have health care, you need to have jobs." She also came under fire for her take on feminism, which she would like to exchange for the term, "Equalism." "I don't want to consider myself like this die-hard, you know, like, 'I don't really care about men,'" she said. "One thing I'll say, women, we are just as equal as men when it comes to opportunity in the workplace." Two days later, she took a seat across from Good Morning America's Michael Strahan to respond to the mounting backlash surrounding her answers. In clarifying her points, it sounded like she shifted her stance. "I am a woman, I'm going to own what I said," she responded. "I am privileged to have health care and I do believe that it should be a right and I hope and pray moving forward that health care is a right for all worldwide." "I am privileged to have health care. I want people to see where I was coming from. Having a job, I have to look at health care like it is a privilege," the new Miss USA continued. In regard to her take on feminism, the 25-year-old wanted to be clear she wants women to get the recognition they deserve. "For me, where I work at with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, equalism is more of a term of understanding that no matter your gender, you are still given the same accolades on your work, so I believe [if] the person does a good job, they should be, you know, credited for that in a sense, but I don't want anyone to look at [it] as if I'm not all about women's rights because I am," McCullough said. "We deserve a lot when it comes to opportunity in the workplace as well as leadership positions." As a final note, "I've seen and witnessed firsthand the impact women have." (Eonline)

Get ready for a Carpool Harry-oke starring Harry Styles! The One Direction member-turned-solo artist, 23, kicked off his week-long residency on The Late Late Show Monday along with host James Corden and actor Aaron Taylor Johnson, who was the night's guest. "I've arranged for Mr. Harry Styles, he's going to help me get to work on Thursday in a brand new Carpool Karaoke, you don't want to miss it," Corden announced at the top of the show. Back in December 2015, Styles rode with Corden and his band mates Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, months following Zayn Malik's departure. Also during Monday's episode, Styles had a bit of an awkward moment when Johnson mentioned the Kardashians -- specifically Harry's ex Kendall Jenner -- during a conversation about the actor's coop of chickens, all of whom are named after the Keeping Up with the Kardashians reality family. "So, do [the Kardashians] lay every day, Harry?" Corden asked Styles. Styles will be performing a new song from his self-titled album each night of the stint until Thursday, May 18. On Monday's show, the singer performed his hit, "Sign of the Times." The Late Late Show airs nightly at 12:37 a.m. ET/PT. (People)

Rumors have previously been rife that icon Mariah Carey would replace much-loved Nicole Scherzinger as a judge on the X Factor UK. Now it has been revealed that Nicole will be back for the new series, but this doesn't rule out a Mariah judging role... The Sun has reported that it was Mariah's reps who approached Simon Cowell and the X Factor team, but that they continued to re-sign Nicole up regardless. Sources said of the situation: "Mariah's name is still in the frame and, given it's X Factor, it's safer not to rule anything out." We guess only time will tell, as a fourth judge has not been picked yet to join Simon, Louis and Nicole. There is talk Sharon will return, but if not, could this mean Mariah will have her moment in the X Factor spotlight?! Mariah previously appeared as a judge on American Idol in 2012, but clashed with Nicki Minaj. (British Glamour)

Harry Styles Uses a 1D Mind Trick As He Kicks Off His 'Late Late Show' Residency. Host James Corden reveals Harry will star in a Carpool Karaoke later this week. He can sing. He looks neat in pretty much anything and he breaks hearts wherever he goes. It turns out the TV cameras love him too. Harry Styles kicked off his four-night residency on James Corden's The Late Late Show overnight and didn't look out of his depth. The British pop star opened his stint with a sketch in which he was blocked in the CBS lobby by a gruff security guard. "You're Harry Styles, sure, fine. And I'm Katy Perry," the gatekeeper responded. "If you're Harry Styles, then where's the rest of One Direction?" So Styles pulls out the big guns. He uses a patented 1D mind trick to unlock her brain and turn it into goo. When Corden tries the same stunt, it backfires. Styles' debut solo album Harry dropped last Friday and is sailing to No. 1 on the U.S. and U.K. albums charts. The pop singer will appear on Corden's late show across four nights and will ride with the host for a special edition of "Carpool Karaoke" on Thursday night. The singer also discussed his notorious stage dive attempt during an intimate show in New York the week of his album's release and performed his first solo single, "Sign of the Times." (Billboard)

Courtney Barnett Shows Us 'How To Boil An Egg'. The great Melbourne rocker Courtney Barnett is sharing a new song as part of the Split Singles Club series, a collaboration between Barnett's own Milk! Records and fellow Australian indie Bedroom Suck. Although technically, "How To Boil An Egg" is an old song. "I used to perform this song at all the open mics when I was 21," Barnett explains. "It never got recorded, so for personal-posterity I updated it and made this version recently when I was bunkered up in the bush doin' some demos for my next album. In tradition of the Milk! Records compilation releases, like 'Pickles From The Jar' or 'Three Packs A Day,' I wanted to include a song of mine for Split Singles Club that was a tad left of album-centre. It's a songwriting experiment that doesn't really belong anywhere else." (Billboard)

Carter Page Cites Maroon 5 In Letter To Justice Department. In the summer of 2016, former Donald Trump adviser Carter Page was being investigated by the FBI on suspicions that he was working with Russian intelligence. Page is now asking the Department Of Justice to release documents detailing their surveillance efforts, and he's quoting Maroon 5 lyrics as part of his argument. "The documents that the US Department of Justice must now provide are crucial to repairing the integrity of your organization following last year's events," Page writes in a letter to the DOJ obtained by CNN. "A song from popular culture accurately describes many of the matters usurping a vast proportion of your time and America's attention given the primary focus of the mainstream media today: 'Like a little girl who cries in the face of a monster that lives in her dreams.'" He helpfully provided a YouTube link to Maroon 5's "Harder To Breathe" in a footnote. Ah, yes, the time-honored rhetorical strategy of quoting Maroon 5. Never fails. (Billboard)

Zac Efron Will Star as One of the Most Notorious and Terrifying Serial Killers of All Time. How's this for some bone-chilling casting news? Zac Efron has been cast as infamous serial killer Ted Bundy in an upcoming psychological thriller, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The film is titled Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, and will be told from the perspective of Bundy's longtime girlfriend, Elizabeth Kloepfer. True crime fanatics will remember Kloepfer as the one who turned Bundy into authorities, though she continued to date him despite her growing suspicion that Bundy was involved in the disappearances of multiple young women in the 1970s. Bundy was described as attractive and charming, characteristics that factored into him committing at least 30 confessed homicides across seven states up until his capture in 1978. (The actual victim total remains unknown.) While awaiting trial on murder charges in 1975, the Vermont native escaped from prison twice. During this time, Bundy committed additional assaults, which included three murders. He ultimately received three death sentences, and was executed 1989. Producer Nicolas Chartier described Efron as the "perfect" actor to take on the role, telling Deadline, "He can play both the depth and the charm that this guy had in equal measures, and which allowed him to manipulate these women in such a terrifying way." Are you excited to see the former Disney star take on the dramatic role? (Eonline)

Hackers Threaten to Leak Upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean Film Unless Disney Pays Ransom. Hackers are reportedly holding Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales hostage. Online pirates who claim to have the unreleased action flick in their possession are threatening to leak it unless Disney pays up, according to Deadline. The hackers have demanded an "enormous amount" of money via an online currency called Bitcoin, and will release the movie in increments until the ransom is met. The publication reports that the FBI is involved in the investigation, and Disney has no plans to concede to the requests. E! News has reached out to the studio for comment, but CEO Bob Iger allegedly briefed ABC employees on the incident Monday morning, but did not confirm Pirates is the film at risk. The fifth installment of the highly-anticipated franchise stars Javier Bardem as the villain opposite Captain Jack Sparrow's Johnny Depp. Other Pirates favorites set to return include Orlando Bloom as Will Turner, Keira Knightly as Elizabeth Swann and Geoffrey Rush as Captain Hector Barbossa. Shanghai Disney Resort hosted the movie's world premiere, followed by another star-studded event in Paris and the U.S. premiere in Los Angeles on May 18. Director Joachim Ronning squashed rumors that Dead Men Tell No Tales would be franchise's last, teasing to CinemaBlend, "This is the beginning of the finale...But I don't know if it's the last one, or if they'll make another 10 of them. I don't know! But I hope so!" Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales premieres nationwide May 26. (Eonline)

Netflix Orders Comedy About Dysfunctional Terrorist Cell as Second Spanish Original Film. Written and directed by 'A Spanish Affair' scribe Borja Cobeaga, comedy starts Javier Camara Netflix unveiled its second original feature film from Spain on Tuesday. Fe de Etarras, a comedy about a dysfunctional terrorist cell in Madrid, stars Javier Camara (Narcos), Julian Lopez, Miren Ibarguren and Gorka Otxoa. The film is written and directed by Borja Cobeaga, who describes it as "a crazy comedy about a serious subject- like Friends, but in a safe house." Cobeaga wrote Spain's most successful comedy ever, A Spanish Affair, which ranks as Spain's top-grossing homegrown title of all time. Produced by Barcelona-based Mediapro, the comedy will premiere simultaneously in the 190 countries, in which Netflix operates. Fe de Etarras is set in the summer of 2010 in a Spanish city and tells the story of a strange and dysfunctional terrorist squad formed by a veteran who wants to prove he isn't a coward, a couple whose relationship depends on the longevity of the operation and an outsider who thinks that being a part of the team will make him feel like Chuck Norris. The squad hides in an apartment waiting to get the go-ahead, which seems like it will never come. Meanwhile, the Spanish national soccer team is winning the World Cup in South Africa, and the whole country is celebrating around them. Netflix said no English-language title has been selected yet for the film, which starts shooting this week in Madrid. Etarra is the name given members of the armed Basque separatist group ETA, which waged a 50-year bloody campaign for independence from Spain, killing more than 800 people before ending its activity earlier this year. Netflix Spain's first film was Seven Years, released in October. (Hollywood Reporter)

Roseanne Is Officially Returning Home With Revival at ABC. Roseanne is going home. Two decades after the iconic family sitcom signed off the air, ABC has announced that they've handed out a straight-to-series order for a revival, bringing the Connor clan back to the network that made them household names. Network president Channing Dungey confirmed the plans for the new episodes while on a conference call with reporters ahead of ABC's big presentation during 2017 Upfronts week in New York City. "We're rebooting Roseanne," she said. "It is planned for the midseason. We're still at the early stages." After reports of the revival made news weeks ago, Roseanne sparked interest from several outlets, including Netflix, but ultimately the show's former home won out in the end. As previously reported, original stars Roseanne Barr, John Goodman and Sara Gilbert will be returning (despite Goodman's Dan having died), with Barr and Gilbert executive producing alongside Tom Werner and Bruce Helford. Other cast members, including Laurie Metcalf and Johnny Galecki, are expected to return as well. Running from 1988 to 1997 for nine seasons, Roseanne was hailed for its realistic portrayal of the working class American family. Centered on the Connor family, who was always just scraping by, the comedy went on to 17 Emmy awards throughout its run. Roseanne also starred Michael Fishman, Lecy Goranson, Sarah Chalke, Natalie West and the late Glenn Quinn. No word yet on which Becky will be in the revival. (Chalke famously replaced Goranson during season six, before the latter returned in season eight.) Are you looking forward to returning to Lanford with the Connors? And are you holding out for a Halloween episode like we are? (Eonline)

Logan Huntzberger, Are You the Father? Matt Czuchry Holds the Answer to a Gilmore Girls Mystery. It seems like Gilmore Girls fans will have to call Maury Povich in to get to the bottom of the final four words of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. Spoiler alert! The Netflix revival ended with Rory Gilmore (Alexis Bledel) telling her mom, Lorelai (Lauren Graham), she was pregnant. Cut to black. Is Logan (Matt Cuzchry), Rory's baby daddy? "That's a question for Amy Sherman-Palladino to answer that question. I cannot answer that question," Czuchry told E! News with a laugh at Fox's 2017 Upfronts. Czuchry will next be seen opposite Emily VanCamp in Fox's new medical drama, The Resident. Czuchry said the Gilmore Girls creator did not give him any guidelines about what he was and wasn't allowed to say now that the revival has been seen by millions of viewers. "Actually, she told me I could say whatever I wanted and that's what I've always chosen to say," he told us. "Oh, that's kind of cool," VanCamp said. However, Czuchry said he does know "what the situation is with that," but it's not his story to tell. "It's not my story, it's Amy and Dan's story, they're the creators of it," he said. "I just feel like they've not said it, so if they want to say whatever it is then they should be the ones to say it, not me. But they said I could say whatever I wanted." When E! News spoke with Sherman-Palladino and her husband and fellow Gilmore Girls executive producer Daniel Palladino after the revival dropped on Netflix, the two said they 100 percent know who the father is. "I think a lot of clues are out there. I know with the time passage it wasn't 100 percent clear, but we also didn't have her engage with who she thought was the father," Palladino said. "She felt like she was going ahead on this, deciding what to do and how to do it solo, that's why we had her go to her father. At that point you didn't know she was pregnant, but in hindsight, I think that was -- " "In hindsight, she was searching for what is her path going to be. Look, I thought I had told Lauren the last four words 10 years ago and she informed me that I didn't, so I don't know what I've told anybody and what I've said to anybody," Sherman-Palladino added. "We just sort of felt like we wanted to leave it in that way because it was really less about who the father was and more about Rory repeating her mother's history." (Eonline)

It's Official: Scandal Ending After Season 7. Olivia Pope's "It's handled" days are officially coming to an end. ABC announced the Shonda Rhimes series starring Kerry Washington will come to an end after the already announced season seven. Network president Channing Dungey confirmed suspicions that the Gladiator's days were numbered during a conference call with reporters ahead of ABC's big presentation during the 2017 Upfronts week in New York City. "I do think the audiences, fans and Gladiators...are going to want the story to end in the way that Shonda intended," she said, adding that the network supports Shonda's decision "wholeheartedly." Rumors about Scandal ending first circulated weeks ago, but went unconfirmed. For her part, Rhimes has been open about the show having a definitive conclusion. "I feel like there is a finite amount of Scandal to be told. I know what the end of Scandal will be, and I feel really good about that. And I can see where the end point is. And I don't think I'm going to change that...I know how long it will be, but we'll see," Rhimes previously told NPR. Washington told Glamour she trusted Rhimes' decision. "It's not really up to me," she said. "It's up to Shonda and to the network. Shonda has said from the beginning that she kind of knows how it ends. So, I'm trusting her to guide the arc." Scandal also stars Tony Goldwyn, Bellamy Young, Scott Foley, Katie Lowes, Guillermo Diaz, Darby Stanchfield, Joshua Malina, Jeff Perry and Joe Morton. Will you be sorry to see Scandal go or it is time to hang up the white hat? Scandal's two-hour season six finale airs Thursday, May 18 at 9 p.m. on ABC. (Eonline)

Cheryl Burke Is "Strict" on Dance Moms, But Says the Girls Have Been "Traumatized." Cheryl Burke returned home to Dancing With the Stars during the semifinals and saw Simone Biles eliminated from the competition, but she wasn't exactly surprised. "Simone, I was saying earlier, she could be part of the troupe that's how good she is, but at the end of the day knowing the show and being on it for 19 seasons, it's about the journey you take," Burke told E! News. "The audience at home, they love to be able to connect as if you're their best friend and they want to see a non-dancer become a dancer." Burke is taking her dance experience to a new venue on Lifetime's Dance Moms. While she admits to never really being a Dance Moms viewer, Burke said it's not that different than Dancing With the Stars. "I'm coaching these girls. I come from the original dance mom, so I kind of know how to handle these moms. But it is a lot. I just want the girls to have a positive experience coming out of this show," she said. Burke replaced Abby Lee Miller during filming of Dance Moms season seven. "A lot of the girls I feel have been traumatized by the past and I just want them to know it's all about positive reinforcement, but I am still strict. I'm not going to let anything swing by, but it's been a roller coaster ride in such a short amount of time to be honest," she admitted. "Once Abby left we only did a few weeks and there's so much more I want to bring out from them." Dancing With the Stars airs Mondays, 8 p.m. on ABC. (Eonline)

News caught up with the Olympic gold medalist and her professional partner Sasha Farber after they were ousted from the ABC reality hit on Monday night, where an emotional Simone told us, "I think everyone's a little bit shocked, but sometimes you don't know." While she didn't win the mirrorball trophy, Simone said she felt like she "won" a few other things during her time on the show. "I've never danced in heels, I've never danced with a guy," the 20-year-old gymnast said, "so I feel like I've won a lot at that, and I've won a friendship for life." Sasha was quick to gush about her partner, also saying he had made a friend for life this season. "I'm just super proud I got to meet her and work with her.

Tracy Morgan: Staying Alive Is Not a Therapy Session for the Legendary Comedian, You Hear? Tracy Morgan's first stand-up special on Netflix may mark the legendary comedian's return to the form since the devastating 2014 car collision that left another comedian dead and the 30 Rock alum in critical condition, but don't tune in expecting a raw therapy session. "People ask me that all the time about therapy. I've never used comedy as therapy. If I need therapy, I just get in my car and go back to my old neighborhood," Morgan admitted to E! News while promoting Tracy Morgan: Staying Alive. "It reminds me of where I come from and where I could end up at if I don't check myself before I wreck myself. So I do comedy because I love to do it. That's it. It's not about me." Acknowledging the outrage culture that's cropped up since his time away from the stage, Morgan told us there wasn't a single joke in the special, filmed at the landmark Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, New Jersey that he felt the urge to get ahead of and pre-emptively apologize for. "No. That'll never happen again. I'm just doing comedy and everybody in that room knows there isn't any malice in my heart," he asserted. "You take out your rage on somebody else." Tracy Morgan: Staying Alive is now available for streaming only on Netflix. (Eonline)
