Paul Walker's Brothers to Help Complete Shooting of "Fast & Furious 7"


Kevin Winter/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Paul Walker's brothers will fill in for the late actor to help complete his scenes for the next film in the Fast & Furious franchise.

A statement posted Tuesday on the series' official Facebook page announced that filming of Fast & Furious 7 has resumed, with Caleb and Cody Walker stepping in for their brother.

It reveals, "Caleb and Cody are helping us complete some remaining action for their brother and fill in small gaps left in production. Having them on set has made us all feel that Paul is with us too."

The statement also notes that following Walker's death in a car crash last November, "We came together and all felt the only choice was to continue. We believe our fans want that, and we believe Paul would want that too."

The statement adds that Walker had completed most of his scenes as Brian O'Conner for the film, and "it's among the strongest work of his career."

Production on Fast & Furious 7 was suspended for several months following Walker's death. The film will arrive in theaters on April 10, 2015.

CBS Denies It's Discussed Late-Night Time Slot with Chelsea Handler


NBC Universal(LOS ANGELES) -- For the moment, it appears Chelsea Handler will not be joining Stephen Colbert at CBS in 2015.

The E! late-night host had the rumor mill churning on Monday, when she posted onto her Instagram page a photo of herself holding some papers, one of which had the CBS logo printed on it. The accompanying caption read, "Business meeting."

The picture fueled speculation that Handler may replace Craig Ferguson as host of CBS' Late Late Show. However, the network denies that is the case. A network spokesperson tells New York Magazine's Vulture that it is not in discussions with Handler regarding its 12:35 a.m. Eastern time slot.

The spokesperson says that while Handler did have a meeting with CBS this week, it was "a general meeting with our syndication [division.]”

ABC News Radio confirmed late last month that Handler plans to end her E! program, Chelsea Lately, and leave the cable network when her contract expires at the end of the year. Ferguson's deal with CBS will run out at the same time.

CBS announced last week that Colbert will replace the retiring David Letterman as the host of Late Show sometime in 2015. Colbert will be a guest on Letterman's show next Tuesday.

"Glee" Creator Says Final Season Won't Be Set in New York


Brian Bowen Smith/FOX(LOS ANGELES) -- Glee creator Ryan Murphy has changed his mind and is telling reporters that the final season of the Fox series won't be centered on New York after all.

"The final season is really its own story and its own location and while the New York stuff will be alive, the final season is not New York-centric at all," Murphy told reporters Monday during a conference call that included The Hollywood Reporter.

Instead the series will time jump, and Murphy said he's inviting all past characters back to the series for its sixth and final season.

"It really [will be] a lovely, fitting season that...dwells on the original people that were on the show and what happens to them and how they give back. That really is the last season...We'll revisit some of the new kids that came and went. There's a return of the Jane [Lynch]-Matt [Morrison] characters in a big way. It's really interesting, very sweet, satisfying ending to the story," he said.

Murphy also hinted about the final scene in the final season. It will apparently involve Lea Michele's Rachel Berry and Morrison's Will Schuester.

"We do have a final idea that we're working on that I think is very powerful and moving," Murphy explained. "It's about Rachel and Mr. Schue and it returns them to their origins and their roots, about how they felt about each other when they were younger and everything was idyllic. That ending has to be a reflection and celebration of how far all those characters have evolved....The main thrust of [the episodes] will be a final farewell to all of our characters that we've known since season one."

Murphy also said he and the other writers have been debating if Rachel should have another love interest after Finn's passing. Finn was played by Michele's off-screen boyfriend Cory Monteith, who passed away last July.

"We'll probably follow Lea's lead as we have so many times this year," he said. "She's always been so great and sensitive and been so wise about how to handle that stuff. We have to make that decision in the next couple of weeks -- if not months: Is Rachel going to have another romance? Or does Rachel's second half romantically happen when Glee is over? That's something we're debating. It's hard."

Still, one thing that's already been decided is the idea of a spin-off. Murphy said it's not happening.

"No, the spin-off thing was something that, you know, if we were going to do a spin-off what we were going to do was do the New York stuff as a spin-off, but we ended up not doing that, so not it's not a spin-off idea," he said, according to E! News.

Glee airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on Fox.

Brandy Norwood and Ryan Press End Engagement


Kevin Winter/BET/Getty Images for BET(LOS ANGELES) -- Brandy Norwood is back on the market.

The singer and her music exec fiancé, Ryan Press, split before the singer's 35th birthday in February, her rep confirmed to ABC News.

"They are both taking a step back actually. That’s what they both wanted to do," the rep said. "They’re friends and I think it’s the mature thing to do in a relationship is just evaluate where you are and move forward. The great thing is that they are friends and definitely that’s an important part and he’s still supportive of what she’s doing."

Norwood, who has a daughter from a previous relationship, and Press announced their engagement last year.

Last month, her brother, singer Ray J, told ABC News Radio that he's "protective" over his older sister.

"Every guy is crazy," he said, when asked whom he'd like to see her date. "I know I am so I just want to make sure she's happy and then I got her back -- whatever she wants to do."

Andi Dorfman Insults Juan Pablo Galavis In New "Bachelorette" Poster


ABC (NEW YORK) -- In case it wasn't clear on the last season of The Bachelor, Andi Dorfman is not at all interested in Juan Pablo Galavis.

How not interested? So much so that Galavis is slammed in a new promotional poster for The Bachelorette.

"She's looking for the right Juan," the poster reads, with the word "Juan" crossed out and replaced with "one."

Dorfman, a 26-year-old district attorney, was named the ABC dating competition's new star last month.

"I'm speechless. It's so surreal. I went on The Bachelor to find my husband and to find the love of my life," she said at the time. "It definitely gets lonely being single... I'm just looking to find that great love."

The Bachelorette returns in May.

Dina Lohan Pleads Guilty to DWI


iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Dina Lohan pleaded guilty to DWI on Tuesday.

Lindsay Lohan's mother accepted a plea deal stemming from the September 2013 DWI and speeding charges against her, her lawyer, Mark Heller, confirmed to ABC News.

"This being the first day of Passover, Dina Lohan was very gratified to receive an offer that we could not pass over," he said in a statement. "No jail, no probation and the opportunity to resume her driving privileges. She felt this was a great start to the Holy Week."

Lohan was arrested in the fall for driving 22 mph over the speed limit with a blood-alcohol level of 0.2 percent. Nassau County District Court Judge Andrew Engel ordered Lohan, 51, to complete 100 hours of community service before her June 3 sentencing, according to Newsday.

The judge also ordered her to attend a 16-hour state program on driver safety and will require her to install devices in her car that will only allow her to start the vehicle if she's sober and pay fines that total roughly $2,800.

"I'll never be back here again,” Lohan said. “You can quote me on that one.”

Michael Strahan Joins ABC's “Good Morning America”


ABC/Ida Mae Astute(NEW YORK) -- Michael Strahan got a red carpet welcome on ABC’s Good Morning America Tuesday as a member of the GMA family.

“I’m curious, when I’m here a few days a week, does that play every time?,” Strahan, 42, joked of the 30-second clip reel showing him as a baby, Super Bowl-winning NFL star and TV personality that preceded his arrival.

Strahan joined his new colleagues -- GMA’s George Stephanopoulos, Robin Roberts, Amy Robach and Lara Spencer -- at the GMA news desk in the show’s Times Square studio.  When Strahan appears on GMA, he will report from the studio before traveling uptown to his other morning show, Live! with Kelly & Michael.

“We’re so excited,” said Roberts. “You’re going to join us a couple days a week.”

When Robach indicated that Strahan will be reporting on, “stories that you love,” Strahan revealed what has him really excited about joining GMA.

“I watch you every morning and I always sit there and go, ‘Yeah that’s a good point,’” Strahan said.  “Now, instead of talking to the TV, I actually get to talk to you.”

Strahan’s arrival on GMA harkened back to his NFL days as a New York Giant as a he entered the studio to the high-fives of cheering fans.

The NFL Hall of Famer was presented with gifts to make sure he shows up alert and on time for his first day of work.

“The time is off so if I’m late on my first day, it’s George’s fault ’cause he gave me a clock and it’s not set with the right time,” Strahan said to Stephanopoulos, who gifted him with an alarm clock. “But I appreciate it because you can never have enough alarm clocks.”

Spencer gave Strahan a gigantic GMA coffee mug so he could stay caffeinated. “If I drink all of this it will be one happy good morning, America,” Strahan said.

Before leaving for Live! with Kelly & Michael, Strahan was put to work, tasked with announcing the show’s next guests, Dancing With the Stars cast-offs Cody Simpson and Witney Carson.

The pop singer and professional dancer then surprised Strahan by wheeling in a wheelbarrow full of Strahan’s favorite candy, Sour Patch Kids.

“Sugar and coffee in the morning,” Strahan said, holding a candy bag with his GMA mug.  “Good morning, America!”

WATCH: Paulina Gretzky's Provocative "Golf Digest" Cover Shoot


ABC/Matt Brown(NEW YORK) -- Golf Digest has released a video to accompany Paulina Gretzky's cover story for the magazine's May issue.

The video features Gretzky posing in various athletic outfits, even by the pool showing off some yoga positions.

Gretzky is engaged to PGA player Dustin Johnson, but isn't a player herself -- something that had members of the PGA more than a bit upset about since she nabbed the magazine's cover.

In the issue, she explains how she met Johnson.

"At the end of 2011, my mom played with Dustin in the Wednesday pro-am at Tiger's tournament at Sherwood. She told Dustin about her daughter, blah-blah-blah, and invited him to the house that night," she said. "We exchanged numbers, and here we are."

She continued, "The most important thing for me right now is my relationship with Dustin. It's what makes me happiest, and I don't think there's anything wrong with that. It's important for people to realize it's OK to be happy in love."

Alexa Ray Joel Feeling Better After Collapsing on Stage


Noam Galai/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Alexa Ray Joel is feeling better after her collapse over the weekend during one of her performances at Cafe Carlyle in New York City.

"I wanted to thank everyone for coming out to support me,” Joel wrote in a statement to the New York Times. "I was excited and determined to fulfill my final performance and I really wanted to end my run with a bang, but this was not what I had in mind and hope I have the opportunity to make it up to the wonderful audience very soon."

The singer was two songs into her set on Saturday when she collapsed. She was taken to the emergency room at New York-Presbyterian Hospital.

Joel's rep told the newspaper that she collapsed because of a sudden drop in blood pressure and heart rate, and reduced blood flow to the brain. The condition is called vasovagal syncope.

Joel, 28, is the daughter of Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley.

"Dancing with the Stars" Recap: Cody Simpson Voted Off


ABC/Craig Sjodin(LOS ANGELES) -- Pop singer Cody Simpson and pro partner Witney Carson were voted off ABC’s Dancing with the Stars Monday night during a show that featured the couples performing routines set to songs from hit Disney films. Disney is the parent company of ABC.

“This has been a very new experience -- an amazing experience -- and obviously it’s tough, but it is what it is,” Simpson said after learning his fate.

The evening also featured the first perfect score of the season: James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd earned perfect “10s” from all four judges.

Donny Osmond, who won season nine of Dancing with the Stars, joined Bruno Tonioli, Len Goodman and Carrie Ann Inaba at the judges’ table.

Each week, the couple with the lowest combined total of judges’ scores and viewer votes from the previous week’s performance is generally voted off. Since no one was voted off on the past two shows -- Billy Dee Williams withdrew from the competition on April 1 and no one was eliminated during last Monday’s partner switch-up -- those two weeks’ worth of judges’ scores and viewer votes were combined to determine Monday night’s elimination.

Here’s a rundown of Monday’s performances:

Drew Carey: The Price Is Right host and partner Cheryl Burke danced a quickstep to “Friend Like Me” from the film, Aladdin. After describing Carey’s routine as “zip-a-dee-doo-dah,” Goodman elaborated: “The performance had plenty of zip; the technique was very, very doo-dah, I’m afraid.” Osmond told Carey his arm movement needed more control, and Tonioli said Carey’s technique suffered. “The quickstep requires a very, very precise, clean delivery. You’ll do better next week,” he said. Inaba cautioned Carey about the “very strange face” he made when he lost focus. Carey earned four sevens for a total of 28 points out of a possible 40.

James Maslow: The actor and singer performed a contemporary routine to the hit song “Let It Go” from the film, Frozen. Tonioli called the routine a “contemporary blockbuster,” while Inaba said she cried throughout the entire performance: “What I saw here was absolute artistry...I did not expect this from you. Congratulations.” Goodman said the routine would “melt the coldest heart, even mine.” Osmond praised the choreography by Maslow’s pro partner, Peta Murgatroyd. “I was just blown away by the whole performance,” he said. Maslow earned four 10s for total of 40 points -- the first perfect score of the season.

Charlie White: Despite a momentary dance floor fumble of his prop cane, the Olympian and pro partner Sharna Burgess’s rousing jazz routine, set to “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” from the film Mary Poppins, earned praise from the judges. Osmond called it “an amazing performance,” and Tonioli agreed, but lamented that White dropped the cane: “What a shame, because it was almost perfect...do it again!” Inaba likened White to “a wave of happiness...except for the cane, fantastic. Stupendous,” she said, while Goodman also heaped praise, calling the routine “eye-popping, show-stopping and jaw-dropping.” He added: “I’m not bothered about the cane, no I’m not, because I thought you came out and just wowed this place.” White earned three nines -- and a 10 from Goodman -– for a total of 37 points.

Danica McKellar: The former Wonder Years actress and her partner, Val Chmerkovskiy, performed a quickstep set to “Be Our Guest” from Beauty and the Beast. The performance included an animated cameo from the film’s character, Gaston, and earned McKellar raves from the judging panel. McKellar even got a hug from a beaming Inaba, who said watching the pair was like watching the film come to life. Tonioli called the routine a “delicious, tasty feast,” adding that McKellar’s improvement was “incredible.” Goodman pointed out some lost body contact, but added that the routine had control and flair, and he called McKellar “a fantastic dancer.” Pointing out that he played Gaston on the Broadway production of the show, Osmond said “both you guys knocked it out of the park. I loved it.” McKellar earned three 10s and a nine, for a total of 39 points.

Amy Purdy: The paralympian snowboarder had expressed frustration about whether she could maintain the smooth technique of the waltz with her prosthetic legs, but her airy performance -- set to “So This is Love” from the film, Cinderella -- earned her a standing ovation from the ballroom audience. Inaba acknowledged that Purdy couldn’t create the rise and fall required by the style of dance, but said that, due to Purdy’s unique circumstance, she couldn’t deduct a point. Goodman said he would have liked more hold, but said the routine was beautiful. Osmond said Purdy was an inspiration and called her “a serious contender in this competition,” while Tonioli told Purdy he loved the performance. Purdy teared up when the judges revealed she and partner Derek Hough had earned three nines and a 10 for a total of 37.

Cody Simpson:
The pop singer’s samba to “I Can’t Wait to Be King” from The Lion King brought mixed reviews from the judges. Osmond said it didn’t seem as though Simpson was enjoying himself. Goodman said he liked the energy and “party feeling” of the samba, but said Simpson needed to work on his technique a bit. Tonioli said Simpson had “incredible energy, incredible timing,” but added that he could have done a bit more samba bounce, while Inaba said she “felt the power of Cody” Monday night. Simpson and partner Witney Carson earned two eights and two nines for a total of 34 points.

NeNe Leakes: Despite experiencing some rehearsal tension stemming from last week’s partner switch, the reality TV star and pro partner Tony Dovolani danced a foxtrot to music from the film, 101 Dalmatians. Osmond said Leakes “owned” the dance floor, while Tonioli said she played the evil Cruella De Vil perfectly. “It was incorporated so well into the choreography and it suited your personality,” he said. Added Inaba: “Cruella De Vil ain’t got nothing on you.” Goodman, referring to the tension between Leakes and Dovolani, said, “Sometimes you think you want a divorce then you realize the folly of your ways and I tell you, you two are a match made in dance heaven.” A visibly emotional Leakes earned four nines, for a total of 36 points.

Meryl Davis: The Olympic ice dancer and partner Maks Chmerkovskiy performed a comedic samba routine set to music from The Jungle Book. Inaba said the two dancers had a special partnership, adding that Davis’s technique was “just fabulous.” Goodman said the routine was “great entertainment and terrific,” while Osmond said it was “thoroughly entertaining.” Tonioli agreed, calling it “a wonderful, wonderful dance.” Davis earned four nines for a total of 36 points.

Candace Cameron Bure: Dancing a samba set to “Under the Sea” from the film, The Little Mermaid, Bure and partner Mark Ballas earned praise from all four judges. Goodman said the routine had fun and joy, while Osmond said Bure had promise. Tonioli said Bure had heeded the judges’ previous advice. “I really like what I saw...,” he said. Inaba said Bure was one of her “favorite movers on this season,” but noted that every once in a while the actress experiences an attack of nerves that affects her performance. Bure earned three nines and an eight for a total of 35 points.

Here a rundown of the judges’ scores:

  • James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd: 40/40
  • Danica McKellar and Valentin Chmerkovskiy: 39/40
  • Amy Purdy and Derek Hough: 37/40
  • Charlie White and Sharna Burgess: 37/40
  • NeNe Leakes and Tony Dovolani: 36/40
  • Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy: 36/40
  • Candace Cameron Bure and Mark Ballas: 35/40
  • Cody Simpson and Witney Carson: 34/40
  • Drew Carey and Cheryl Burke: 28/40

Dancing with the Stars returns next Monday at 8 p.m. Eastern time on ABC.

"Mad Men" Season Premiere Disappoints in Ratings


Frank Ockenfels 3/AMC(NEW YORK) -- Mad Men's final season is not off to a good start in the ratings.

The first airing of the AMC drama's seventh-season premiere on Sunday night was seen by 2.3 million viewers, according to Deadline.com. That's the lowest total for a Mad Men season premiere since 2008, when the second season began with 2.06 million viewers.

The first episode of season six debuted last year to 3.4 million viewers, while the season finale drew 2.7 million.

The first half of Mad Men's final season is airing this spring, while the second half will be televised in 2015.

The return of Mad Men was overshadowed somewhat by a couple of other cable programs that aired Sunday night. The debut of the latest episode of HBO's Game of Thrones was seen by 6.3 million viewers, Deadline.com reports. The fantasy drama's season premiere the previous week attracted 6.6 million.

Also on Sunday night, MTV aired its movie awards show, hosted by Conan O'Brien. Ratings for that broadcast were not available as of Monday evening.
