Nick Viall and the bachelorettes with Backstreet Boys; ABC/Rick Rowell(NEW YORK) -- On Monday’s episode of The Bachelor, Nick Viall started with some damage control, admitting he’d slept with Liz earlier at his friends’ wedding, but ultimately decided to send her home.  

Undaunted by the revelation, Corinne continued her efforts to commandeer Nick’s affections, planning to seduce him with only an overcoat and a can of whipped cream. Still cautious after his sticky situation with Liz, Nick stopped Corinne from taking things as far as she’d hoped, leaving her feeling like she’d failed.

Since she already had a rose, a disappointed Corinne opted to sleep through the ceremony, much to the dismay of both Nick and the rest of the women. Elizabeth, Hailey and Lacey were sent home.

On the first group date, seven of the bachelorettes got a chance to dance onstage with Nick and The Backstreet Boys, with the one with the most impressive moves getting the chance to try them out on Nick.

Danielle emerged as the champion, enjoying her one-on-one time with Nick and grabbing a kiss or two, much to Corinne’s dismay. In the end, Danielle walked away with the rose -- but not before Corinne confessed to the other girls that even though she’s 24, she still has a nanny who takes care of her.

Vanessa floated away with the only one-on-one date of the night, enjoying a zero gravity flight with Nick. While the two enjoyed making out during the weightless portion of the ride, Vanessa was embarrassed when she got sick later on the plane.

Nick comforted her, and they transitioned seamlessly to a romantic date atop LA’s tallest building. Vanessa shared the story of how her grandfather had passed away only three weeks before the show, paving the way for more intimacy with Nick. Before the evening was over, Vanessa had a rose.

Next up was the Nickathalon, a group date where three Olympians led seven girls through track-and-field events to see who’d get some one-on-one time in the hot tub with Nick. Even though Dominique technically came out on top, she failed to grab the ring required to win, so Astrid ended up with the one-on-one time with the Bachelor.

Dominique voiced her displeasure over how the day had gone, which ended up being her one-way ticket home as Nick sent her packing. Ultimately, he opted to give Rachel the rose.

As the episode came to a close with a pool party for all the bachelorettes, Corinne was once again back to her antics, managing some steamy alone time in a bouncy house with Nick -- a move the others girls definitely thought was too much.

Vanessa was just one of the women who voiced her outrage to Nick, going so far as to say she’d rather forego her rose if this is how Nick plans to behave.

Find out what happens next when The Bachelor continues next Monday at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

Chris Haston/NBC

(LOS ANGELES) -- Nick Cannon thinks that ex-wife Mariah Carey was just "a little flustered" during her now-famous New Year's Rockin' Eve performance. During a sit-down chat with Ellen DeGeneres on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday, Cannon jokingly told the daytime host that Mariah's flub was a government set-up. 

"You know me -- I'm a conspiracy theorist. I think the government did that. They set her up. That was a distraction. They just put her out there," he says. 

Turning serious, Nick acknowledged that performing live is difficult. "Anyone who knows about performing and having inner ears and stuff, things can go wrong on live television. I do live television all the -- I screw up on America's Got Talent all the time," he admitted.

"When there's people in your ear saying things and stuff...I think she kinda got a little flustered, but being the diva she is, she said, 'I'm just going to walk around and pose for seven minutes,'" Nick continued. "And like Ryan Seacrest said, 'She can do no wrong.' So, she worked through it." 

As previously reported, last week, Mimi posted a recorded message about her botched New Year's Eve performance to give her side of the story. In the clip, she accuses the production team of sabotaging her, and says that it's not "practical" to sing live in the middle of Times Square on New Year's Eve "with all the noise, the freezing cold, the smoke from the smoke machines, thousands of people celebrating" and faulty ear monitors.

David Livingston/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- A couple of weeks after welcoming her first child, Dancing With the Stars pro Peta Murgatroyd took to Instagram to get real about her post-baby body.

Murgatroyd and her fiance Maksim Chmerkovskiy welcomed son Shai Aleksander on Jan. 4.

"Real life: I took this photo 8 days post birth. I left the hospital looking 5 months pregnant. Many people think a woman should shrink right back to her pre-birth weight immediately. That is just not the truth for most," she wrote, alongside a picture of her proudly displaying her body.

She continued, "The female body is incredible and resilient, but healing and strengthening take time. Now it's time for patience and hard work. Lots of love to all the new mamas out there on the journey."

Murgatroyd, 30, also added the hashtag "#ShaiIsWorthEveryPound."

The Dancing duo announced their engagement in December 2015. Six months later, they revealed they were expecting their first child.

© 2016 WARNER BROS. ENTERTAINMENT INC. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.(LOS ANGELES) -- Zoe Saldana is taking Hollywood to task for its harsh treatment of President-elect Donald Trump.

In an interview with Agence France-Presse that was re-posted on Yahoo, the Star Trek actress says that liberal Hollywood's brash treatment of Trump during the presidential election helped to turn off middle-class Americans and increase the president-elect's fanbase.

"We got cocky and became arrogant and we also became bullies," Saldana said of Trump, who has been repeatedly accused of being a bully by insulting and mocking those he doesn't like, or who disagree with him.

Although not a supporter of the Republican president-elect, Saldana feels that Trump's behavior could be compared to some of the celebrities who chose to single him out.

"We were trying to single out a man for all these things he was doing wrong... and that created empathy in a big group of people in America that felt bad for him and that are believing in his promises," the actress explained.

Saldana, who was born in the U.S. to Puerto Rican and Dominican parents, says even with racial tensions running high due to campaign rhetoric against Mexicans and Muslims, she's hopeful that a Trump presidency won't bring the nation back to the dark days of segregation.

"I'm learning from [Trump's victory] with a lot of humility," Zoe told AFP. "If we have people continue to be strong and educate ourselves and stand by equal rights and treat everyone with respect, we won't go back to those times."

ABC/Mitch Haaseth(LOS ANGELES) -- On last week's episode of ABC's The Bachelor, Nick Viall dropped a bombshell by sending home Liz, a woman he'd slept with before she came on the show.  This week, he'll have to spill the beans about what happened to the other women.

"I think you will see the fallout from me sending Liz home addressed as the episode begins," says Nick of tonight's show. "I think people will be very intrigued by how that all goes over in the house."

Viall has no regrets about his decision to send Liz packing, insisting, "Liz is great and I wish her the best. I think it was a decision that my guess at this point she would agree was best for both of us."

Adds Nick, "Unfortunately while we got to know each other when we first met, that time had passed, for us."

We're also sure to see more of Corinne, the aggressive businesswoman from Miami who's shaping up to be the villain of the season, although Nick tells ABC Radio he thinks the label is a little unfair at this point.

"Corrine certainly took chances and she put herself out there, and whether she made the right decisions or not is certainly open for debate. But she is someone who is a firecracker, and definitely takes risks, and some of the women are a little bit more conservative," he says. "I think both have their merits, and I think sometimes people will maybe be a little too critical." 

The Bachelor airs Monday night at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

Fox - 2017(LOS ANGELES) -- This Sunday, The Simpsons kicked off their 600th episode with a what was basically a hip-hop-inspired ode to F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic 1925 novel, The Great Gatsby.

The first-ever hour-long episode, titled "The Great Phatsby," began with the Simpsons taking a trip to a wealthy enclave, inspired by upscale Hamtons community on New York's Long Island, to attend a "beachside bacchanal" at Mr. Burns' estate. After the party, Mr. Burns and Homer Simpson come face-to-face with the host of another soiree nearby -- hip-hop super-producer "Jay G. "

The episode continued to feature a handful of special animated guests, including a candle-selling failed rapper named Jazzy James, voiced by Key and Peele's Keegan Michael Key; Jay G's ex-wife, Praline, voiced by Taraji P. Henson and clearly inspired by her Empire character, Cookie; and recording artists RZA, Snoop Dogg and Common. 

After Burns finds himself penniless, thanks to being swindled by Jay G, the rappers and Praline agree to help Burns, Bart and Homer exact revenge on the mogul in the recording studio, with their very own diss track. 

Even with their revenge plan foiled by Jay G himself, along with another failed plot involving a cooked goose, Jay G and Mr. Burns call a truce, and the Simpsons leave the Springfield Hamptons with a newfound appreciation for hip-hop.

2015 - Lucasfilm(LOS ANGELES) -- In the wake of Carrie Fisher's death, there was speculation producers might digitally recreate her character for the remaining Star Wars films.  However, Lucasfilm says it's not going to happen.

“We don’t normally respond to fan or press speculation, but there is a rumor circulating that we would like to address," Lucasfilm said in a statement released Friday.  "We want to assure our fans that Lucasfilm has no plans to digitally recreate Carrie Fisher’s performance as Princess or General Leia Organa."

The statement continues: "Carrie Fisher was, is, and always will be a part of the Lucasfilm family. She was our princess, our general, and more importantly, our friend.  We are still hurting from her loss. We cherish her memory and legacy as Princess Leia, and will always strive to honor everything she gave to Star Wars.”

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story includes a brief, digitally altered performance by Fisher as a young Leia from the first Star Wars movie, along with a much lengthier complete digital re-creation of the late Peter Cushing as Governor Tarkin, a.k.a. Grand Moff Tarkin, also as he appeared in the first movie.  Word is Fisher finished her performance for Star Wars: Episode VIII, so the speculation was she might be digitally recreated for Episode IX.

Fisher died December 27, four days after she went into cardiac arrest on a transatlantic flight.

Star Wars is owned by Disney, the parent company of ABC News.

Taraji P. Henson in "Hidden Figures"; Hopper Stone/Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation(NEW YORK) -- Hidden Figures, starring Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monáe, grabbed the top spot at the weekend box office for the second week in a row, raking in an estimated $20.4 million on its way to a projected $25 million gross for the Martin Luther King Day weekend, according to Box Office Mojo.

Taking second place was La La Land, starring Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, earning $14.5 million. The winner of seven Golden Globes is expected to top $17 million for the four-day weekend.

Sing, the animated musical featuring the voices of Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Seth McFarlane and Scarlett Johansson, held on to third place, grabbing $13.8 million.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, starring Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Bill Mendelsohn, Forest Whitaker, Riz Ahmed and Alan Tudyk, finished the weekend in fourth with an estimated $13.8 million. That figure should top $17 million by Monday, which would make it the only 2016 release to top $500 million domestically and just the seventh film of all-time to earn that honor. Star Wars is owned by Disney, the parent company of ABC News.

In fifth place, with an estimated $13.38 million debut, is the horror feature The Bye Bye Man, featuring Big Love's Douglas Smith, Scream Queens' Lucien Laviscount and British actress Cressida Bonas. It was the only new release to make the top five.

Mark Wahlberg's Patriots Day, expanding to wide release, had a disappointing weekend with an estimated $12 million take, as did Monster Trucks, starring MacGyver's Lucas Till, with a $10.5 million haul.  Ben Affleck's Live by Night, however, fared the worst of the new releases, finishing out of the top ten with $5.4 million.

Here are the top 10 movies from Friday through Sunday, with estimated weekend gross ticket sales:

1. Hidden Figures, $20.4 million
2. La La Land, $14.5 million
3. Sing, $13.8 million
4. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, $13.8 million
5. The Bye Bye Man, $13.38 million
6. Patriots Day, $12 million
7. Monster Trucks, $10.5 million
8. Sleepless, $8.46 million

Will Heath/NBC(NEW YORK) -- As expected, Alec Baldwin reprised his Donald Trump impersonation on this weekend's Saturday Night Live, and as usual, Trump responded with some choice words for the show, its cast and NBC.

“@NBCNews is bad but Saturday Night Live is the worst of NBC. Not funny, cast is terrible, always a complete hit job. Really bad television!,” Trump tweeted Sunday.

 

.@NBCNews is bad but Saturday Night Live is the worst of NBC. Not funny, cast is terrible, always a complete hit job. Really bad television!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 15, 2017

 

The show's cold open lampooned Trump on everything from his transition team's apparent difficulty in securing musical acts and celebrities for inauguration day events, to his plan to divest himself from his businesses, to an unconfirmed, salacious report that Russia has compromising intelligence on him.

"Who is excited for my inauguration day?" Baldwin's Trump asked to a roar of applause. "Yes, thank you to those people over there who I definitely did not pay to do that."

When a fictitious reporter from Buzzfeed -- which Trump described earlier this week as "a failing pile of garbage" for publishing the contents of the report -- asked a question, Baldwin's Trump echoed the comment, adding, "I took your test yesterday and I'm a Joey, not a Rachel!" referring to an online "Which Character from Friends Are You?" quiz.

Asked by a reporter, played by cast member Sasheer Zamata, how he planned to repeal and replace Obamacare, Baldwin's Trump said, “I actually do have a replacement plan, okay? I just read about it this week. It’s a terrific plan. Just great. It’s called the Affordable Care Act.”  The Affordable Care Act is, of course, the legislative name for Obamacare.

When Zamata said that repealing Obamacare meant that people could die, Baldwin replied, “Listen, sweetheart, I’m about to be president, we’re all going to die.”

The cold open also poked fun at Trump's sons Donald Jr. and Eric, played by SNL's Mikey Day and Alex Moffat, respectively. "I've turned over all my businesses to my sons," joked Baldwin's Trump. "Look at those two little American Psychos," referencing Bret Easton Ellis' killer yuppie novel-turned film.

2016 - 20th Century Fox(LOS ANGELES) -- With the Hollywood awards season upon us, the entertainment industry is getting inundated with "For Your Consideration" spots -- movie and TV studios' reminders to colleagues not to forget them when it comes to voting.

Leave it to Ryan Reynolds and his alter-ego Deadpool to shake things up.

The "For Your Consideration" for the unlikely box office smash notes it took "42 rejection letters from Fox," and "783 million fans" of a leaked test video of the movie to get it to the big screen.

It's not entirely a joke, however: the movie has ended up on major nominations list including the Golden Globes, the Directors Guild Awards, and -- producers hope -- possibly the Oscars.

ABC/Ida Mae Astute(NEW YORK) -- Comedian, actor, writer, producer -- Kevin Hart does it all, and now the actor is gearing to explain it all in a new two-hour special on the History Channel.

Deadline has learned that Hart will star in and executive produce Kevin Hart Presents: The Black Man's Guide to History, that centers around the comedian explaining the lesser-known but important stories from black history. The special comes from Kevin's Hearbeat Productions and Comedy Dynamics.

According to the site, the show begins with Hart finding his daughter upset after watching 12 Years a Slave and believing that black history is only about slavery and struggle. In an effort to show her a different reality, Hart begins to educate his daughter through scripted re-enactments about black historical figures that may not be widely known. Those figures included: Robert Smalls, a former slave who led a revolt on a Confederate warship and pretended to be the captain to evade capture; Mae Jemison, the first black female astronaut; and Henry “Box” Brown, a slave who courageously mailed himself to a free state in a box.

“I’m very excited to be working with History on this show because not only is it entertaining, and it’s hysterical, but it also is an important program for our country right now,” Hart said. “We hope to make people laugh and learn a bit too.”

No word on an air date for  the project yet.

ABC/Phillippe Bosse(NEW YORK) -- Quantico star Priyanka Chopra had to be examined by a doctor after a mishap took place on the New York City set of the ABC drama.

While TMZ reported the actress was rushed to the ER, a rep for the spy show confirmed only that a "minor incident" had taken place Thursday evening.

"We can confirm that there was a minor incident on the NY set of Quantico last night," the rep tells ABC Radio, adding, "It would be premature to comment further until we have all the information. Priyanka was examined by a doctor, released and is home resting comfortably."  

ABC Radio has also learned that Chopra was a no-show for shooting today, which required some schedule shifting by her co-stars. 

She was also absent from a press event held Friday morning in New York City, where reporters were informed she was home on doctor's orders.

C. Flanigan/Getty Images(LONDON) -- Hours after Michael Jackson's daughter Paris said that seeing British actor Joseph Fiennes portraying her late father in the TV show Urban Myths made her "want to vomit," the show  has pulled the episode.

Urban Myths: A Brand New Collection of Comedies is what the British network Sky Arts describes as dramatizations of "true...ish" pop culture stories. One of the episodes was to feature Elizabeth Taylor, Michael Jackson, and Marlon Brando; fleeing New York City by car after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.

A trailer, which has now been removed, dropped earlier this week.  It showed Fiennes as Jackson, wearing what appears to be a prosthetic nose.

Sky Arts issued an official statement this morning explaining its decision to pull the episode.

"We have taken the decision not to broadcast Elizabeth, Michael & Marlon, a 30min episode from the Sky Arts Urban Myths series," the message begins. "This decision was taken in light of the concerns expressed by Michael Jackson’s immediate family."

The statement continues, "We set out to take a light-hearted look at reportedly true events & never intended to cause any offense. Joseph Fiennes fully supports our decision."

Paris Jackson, Michael's daughter, wrote Wednesday on Twitter, "i'm so incredibly offended by it, as i'm sure plenty of people are as well, and it honestly makes me want to vomit."

As previously reported, Paris wasn't the only Jackson family member to speak out about the portrayal.

"Unfortunately this is what my family has to deal with. No words could express the blatant disrespect," MJ's nephew Taj Jackson wrote on Wednesday.

The show's director, Ben Palmer, previously told the British paper The Guardian, "we really think Joe Fiennes...[has] given a really sweet, nuanced, characterful performance."

ABC/Tyler Golden(LOS ANGELES) -- In an interview with in Marie Claire UK, Natalie Portman revealed she earned three times less than Ashton Kutcher did on their bomb of a romantic comedy called No Strings Attached

Now Kutcher is speaking out -- but he's applauding the Oscar winner.

In a tweet linking to the article, Kutcher said he is, "so proud  of Natalie and all women who stand up for closing the gender pay gap!"

"I wasn’t as pi**** as I should have been," said the 35-year-old Jackie star to the magazine about the salary difference. "I mean, we get paid a lot, so it’s hard to complain, but the disparity is crazy."

"We just have a clear issue with women not having opportunities," Portman said. "We need to be part of the solution, not perpetuating the problem."

She and Kutcher join a host of other stars, including fellow Oscar winners Jennifer Lawrence, Patricia Arquette, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Bradley Cooper, who have spoken out about the wage gap in Hollywood.

Getty Images Entertainment(NEW YORK) -- When Andrew Garfield gave his ex-girlfriend Emma Stone a standing ovation at the Golden Globes after she won the best actress award for La La Land, it became one of the night's most talked about moments.

Now, the 33-year-old English actor is opening up about that moment.

"We care about each other so much, and that’s a given, that’s kind of this unconditional thing. There’s so much love between us and so much respect," he told Vanity Fair's "Little Gold Men" podcast. "I’m her biggest fan as an artist. So for me, it’s been bliss to be able to watch her success and watch her bloom into the actress that she is. And it’s also been wonderful to have that kind of support for each other. It’s nothing but a beautiful thing."

In fact, Garfield counts Stone among his closest friends, who, he said, keep him grounded in Hollywood. Many of those friends were with him Sunday night at the Globes.

"I was overwhelmed that I had such sincere, authentic Hollywood friends," he said about the way he felt during the Globes telecast. "Which I don't think is a common occurrence. I had about seven or eight real, true anchors in that room and in the parties following. Emma, of course, is one, Claire Foy is another, Laura Dern. Eddie Redmayne, Jonah Hill ... these are people that I actually love in a real, sincere way, and I believe they love me back. I was just struck with this deep gratitude."

Garfield also had kind words for his Hacksaw Ridge director Mel Gibson, saying he has, "done that work, that very difficult, internal, transformative work" to improve himself after the scandals that threatened to eclipse his career.

Garfield also made headlines at the Globes for his public smooch with fellow actor Ryan Reynolds after Reynolds lost the Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy to Ryan Gosling.
