Charlotte McKinney and Keo Motsepe Talk Bruno Tonioli, the Nobel Prize and More

ABC/Adam Taylor(NEW YORK) -- Ousted Dancing with the Stars contestant Charlotte McKinney has strong words for judge Bruno Tonioli, who told her Monday night that she's "never going to win the Nobel Prize for quantum physics, but you are easy on the eyes."

Fresh from their appearance on Good Morning America Tuesday morning, during which McKinney blasted Tonioli's comment, McKinney, 23, and her pro partner, Keo Motsepe, played a word-association game with ABC News.

"Unfair," said McKinney, when asked about "Tonioli."

"Rude," added Motsepe.

Comedy Central Supports New "Daily Show" Host Trevor Noah After Backlash

Comedy Central(NEW YORK) -- Comedy Central said they stand by Trevor Noah, Jon Stewart's successor on The Daily Show, after the South African comedian came under fire for some controversial comments he'd tweeted in the past.

The tweets have caused some to accuse Noah of being anti-Semitic and sexist. One tweet from 2011, for example, reads, "A hot white woman with a** is like a unicorn. Even if you do see one, you’ll probably never get to ride it." Others contain comments about Jews and Israel, which were perceived to be derogatory.

But in a statement provided to ABC Radio Monday, the cable network said, "Like many comedians, Trevor Noah pushes boundaries; he is provocative and spares no one, himself included. To judge him or his comedy based on a handful of jokes is unfair. Trevor is a talented comedian with a bright future at Comedy Central."

Noah has also received support from fellow comedians, including Chris Rock. When the news first broke about Noah replacing Stewart, he tweeted: "Thank you President Obama."

On Tuesday, Noah also tweeted to his critics, noting that "a handful of jokes that didn't land" doesn't define his character or him as a comedian.

To reduce my views to a handful of jokes that didn’t land is not a true reflection of my character, nor my evolution as a comedian.

Harvey Weinstein Responds to Model's Accusations

Fernando Leon/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Harvey Weinstein's representative has spoken out on behalf of the media mogul following accusations that surfaced on Monday.

Weinstein, 63, is "being investigated" after a 22-year-old model filed a complaint with police Friday evening, the New York Police Department confirmed to ABC News on Monday.

"We are cooperating fully with the authorities and are confident that we will be fully vindicated," Weinstein's rep told ABC News Tuesday.

The unidentified Italian woman claims Weinstein groped her in his office at the Tribeca Film Center in Manhattan, New York around 6 p.m. Friday. No charges have been filed at this point, police said.

Weinstein allegedly grabbed the woman's breasts, a police source told ABC News.

After police look into the matter, it will be up to the Manhattan District Attorney’s office to decide whether to proceed with charges against the famed movie executive.

The Funniest Moments from Justin Bieber's Comedy Central Roast

Courtesy of Comedy Central(LOS ANGELES) -- Justin Bieber's singing career, his brushes with the law and his former girlfriend Selena Gomez were among the main targets during the much-anticipated Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber, which aired Monday.

The roast featured an eclectic roster of celebrities taking turns poking fun at Bieber, including comedians Natasha Leggero, Jeff Ross and Hannibal Buress, Undateable star Chris D’Elia, Saturday Night Live standout Pete Davidson, basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal, rappers Ludacris and Snoop Dogg, lifestyle guru Martha Stewart and host, actor/comedian Kevin Hart.

Here are some of the special's highlights:

D'Elia, whom Bieber calls his “favorite comedian,” kidded the singer about his blue suit and his hairstyle.

“For a guy worth $200 million, why are you dressed like Sharon Stone in the 90s,” D'Elia joked.

The actor and stand-up comic said of Bieber, “You have it all...except for respect, love, friends, good parents and a Grammy.”

Hart joked that “Ebola patients hear about ‘Bieber fever’ and say, ‘I’m gonna go ahead and ride this one out.’”

Ross joked that he “never roasted somebody with a bedtime before.” He also joked about Bieber’s on-again-off-again romance with Gomez, noting she “wanted to be here, but she’s dating men now.”

After telling the singer, “You have such a huge career behind you,” Ross closed by saying, “You know what Biebs, you’re right. You’re young, talented, you’re famous and that can be a lot of pressure, but you’re a smart man with a good heart and I know you’ll never end up like Kurt Cobain or Amy Winehouse -- respected.”

O’Neal joked, “Justin, as a father of six, you have to straighten up, son. Last year, you were ranked the fifth-most-hated person of all time. Kim Jong-un didn’t rank that low. And he uses your music to torture people.”

Stewart told the singer, “Justin, I’m sure it’s great to have 60 million followers on Twitter, but the only place people will be following you in jail is into the shower.”

Will Ferrell, appearing as his Ron Burgundy character from Anchorman, defended Bieber’s numerous brushes with the law, declaring the pop star is “doing it right.” He then ran down all the incidents, noting, “This kid has spunk, moxie and probably a few other STDs.”

Near the end of the special, Bieber fired back at the roasters.

"I turned a lot of people off the past few years, but I know I can still turn out good music and turn everything around,” he said. “You have my word I will not end up broken, pathetic, bitter or sitting on the dais of somebody else's roast."

The singer then got serious. He said he was “thrown into this at 12 years old” and that he didn’t know what he was getting himself into. He then apologized for his past behavior, declaring, “I’m a kind-hearted person who loves people, and through it all, I lost some of my best qualities.”

He added that he’s “looking forward to being someone that you guys can all look at and be proud of.”

The special was taped on March 14.

Which "Terminator" Film Does Arnold Schwarzenegger Say 'Sucked'?

David McNew/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- In the first Terminator film, Arnold Schwarzenegger said he'd be back.  Now he's back for a fourth time in Terminator: Genisys. It's actually the fifth film in the Terminator film series and marks the former California governor's return to the science-fiction flicks after bowing out of Terminator Salvation, which was released in 2009.

"You didn't do the fourth?" ABC News correspondent Nick Watt asked Schwarzenegger in an interview that aired on Tuesday's Good Morning America.

The actor replied, laughing: "Thank God."

"Why, was it bad?" Watt asked.

"It sucked," Schwarzenegger said.

Thirty-one years after the original Terminator premiered, Schwarzenegger’s character fights his younger self in Genisys.

"Here the challenge was, how do I have the same frame as I had in the 1984 movie?" the 67-year-old former champion bodybuilder said, adding that he "wasn't that far away from it."

"I was an eight. So, I had to push it up to a ten. But within two months I got to that size," Schwarzenegger said.

Genisys is the start of a new Terminator trilogy. "They paid a lot of attention to make this movie really work, to make this movie really go through the roof because then there's a reason to do two more," Schwarzenegger explained.

Terminator: Genisys also stars Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes star Jason Clarke as John Connor, and Divergent actor Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese.

NBC Announces Live Production of “The Wiz” for December

The cast of the 1978 movie starring Diana Ross and Michael Jackson. Michael Ochs Archive/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — NBC has officially announced The Wiz will be its next live musical production.

The network said Monday it will collaborate with Cirque du Soleil on The Wiz, which will air Thursday, December 3. A cast has not yet been announced.

Craig Zadan and Neil Meron -- who have produced the past three Oscars telecasts as well as the NBC live musicals The Sound of Music Live! and Peter Pan Live! -- will return for the new production.

NBC noted that Cirque du Soleil will also work on a Broadway revival of The Wiz that will debut during the 2016-2017 season.

The Wiz initially opened on Broadway in 1975, re-imagining L. Frank Baum's The Wonderful Wizard of Oz in an African-American context. A movie adaptation hit theaters in 1978, starring Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, Lena Horne and Richard Pryor.

Tony Award-winning director Kenny Leon is on board for the TV production and the Broadway revival in collaboration with Harvey Fierstein, who will contribute new material to the original Broadway book by William F. Brown.

NBC previously announced it has a Music Man production in the works. It is expected to premiere in 2016.

Disney Working on Live-Action “Mulan” Movie

Disney(NEW YORK) — Disney is bringing back another princess for a live-action film. The studio will develop a live-action version of Mulan after acquiring a script for the project, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

An animated Mulan film, focusing on the titular female warrior, opened in theaters in 1998, featuring the voices of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. actress Ming-Na Wen and Eddie Murphy.

Mulan
earned more than $300 million worldwide and was nominated for an Oscar for its musical score. A straight-to-video Mulan sequel was released in 2005.

Disney, the parent company of ABC News, currently has a box office hit with the live-action Cinderella. Last year, it found success with Maleficent, starring Angelina Jolie as the Sleeping Beauty villain.

Aside from Mulan, Disney's future live-action projects include new versions of Beauty and the Beast and, reportedly, Dumbo.

New TV Land's “Younger” Is ‘Like “Devil Wears Prada” Meets “Sex and the City”’

TV Land(NEW YORK) — In Younger, Broadway star Sutton Foster plays Liza, a 40-year-old single mom who tries to return to the workforce after several years and a divorce, and finds that it's not how she left it. So she pretends she's in her 20s to score a job in the publishing industry after a dozen failed job interviews.

Debi Mazar stars as Maggie, the lesbian best friend of Liza, who suggests she "re-think things," Mazar tells ABC Radio, especially after a much younger man mistakes Liza for a woman in her 20s at a Brooklyn bar.

Hilary Duff stars as junior editor Kelsey Peters. She describes the series as "kind of like Devil Wears Prada meets Sex and the City." The actress also described her character. "I play this young girl, who's kind of an animal in the work space where she's gotten very high up quickly and she's pretty aggressive, but her dating life is a hot mess," she tells ABC Radio.

Initially, Duff didn't want the role. "My agent calls me and she's like, '[Creator] Darren Star sent this amazing script and this part will be really great for you and he wants to meet you and talk to you.' And I'm like, 'Nope! No, no, no! I don't want to do it. I cannot move to New York right now.' There was just so much going on in my life with a new baby and everything else," she explains.

Eventually after a phone call, Duff agreed, telling Star, "'OK! I'm gonna be there.'"

Mazar, however, jumped at her role. "I'm 50 playing 40. So I'm loving it," she says. "I can tell you how blessed I felt when I got the part because I was older and I got to play younger and it's just so nice. I usually age up. I'm like, 'I'll play the grandmother. I've got no problem with that.'"

Both actresses signed onto the series not only because of the script, but because of the opportunity to work with Star, who also created Sex and the City.

"It's Darren Star so it has his mark on the show for sure," says Duff.

"Darren Star loves women as you can see from all of his shows. He's very specific. It's like doing theater. He knows what he wants. He knows where he wants the comma [and] the period," Mazar adds. "He's a joy to work for just because he really celebrates women and their relationships."

Duff says "the fashion is great" on the series, especially since Star reunited with Sex and the City costume designer Patricia Field to create the looks. Mazar agrees, telling ABC Radio that Star told her he wanted her character to "be a lesbian and still be fierce, and sexy, and wear that lipstick and keep those heels on."

Younger, which also stars Miriam Shor and Nico Tortorella, premieres with back-to-back episodes on TV Land Tuesday at 10 p.m. Eastern time.

“Dancing with the Stars” Recap: Model Charlotte McKinney Eliminated

ABC (LOS ANGELES) — Charlotte McKinney, the model who became a sensation after she starred in a racy Super Bowl commercial for Carl's Jr., was voted off ABC’s Dancing with the Stars Monday.

“I wanted to make you happy, that was my main thing,” McKinney told her pro partner, Keo Motsepe, after learning she was being voted off the show.

“I learned so much,” she added.

McKinney said the show had been “a challenge” and she was “extremely grateful” for the opportunity.

The eliminated couple had the lowest combined total of judges’ scores and viewers’ votes from the previous week’s performances.

It was Latin Night on Monday’s show.


World News Videos | US News Videos

Here’s a rundown of the routines:

Rumer Willis:
The actress’s Disco-themed Salsa got the evening started on a high note. Head judge Len Goodman called the performance “the best dance I’ve seen this season.” Julianne Hough said she enjoyed seeing Willis “let loose” and wanted more of that from her. Bruno Tonioli said Willis had gone “completely disco fabulousm,” and Carrie Ann Inaba said she had initial misgivings about mixing the Disco with Salsa but found the result “fantastic.” Willis earned three 8s and a 9, for a total of 33 out of a possible 40 points.

Charlotte McKinney: After appearing to lack focus and being distracted by her work email during rehearsals, the model, who is dyslexic, earned a standing ovation for her Rumba -- but the judges roundly panned her effort. Hough said she felt “sad” because it appeared McKinney didn’t take her pro partner Keo Motsepe’s instruction and seemed to be picking up her feet during slides. Inaba told the model that everybody was being a little hard on her because she had “so much potential.” An unhappy looking Goodman said, “I tell you about this show. You get out what you put in. The more you sweat the better you get.” And there were murmurs of disapproval when Tonioli told McKinney: “You’re never going to win the Nobel Prize for quantum physics but you are easy on the eyes,” then added that she produced “very good shapes” but appeared to lack concentration. McKinney earned two 5s and two 6s, for a total of 22 points.

Michael Sam: The judges had constructive criticism for the football player after his Salsa. Tonioli called the performance “a great effort” but said Sam’s focus on his partner resulted in his timing being “really, really wrong.” Inaba found the routine “a little choppy” and said she didn’t feel safe watching the lifts. Goodman admitted he found it “a little bit rough and ready” but he thought the lifts were good. “Dance is a little bit like life. You have good days and not so good days. Tonight, not so good,” he said, adding that Sam should focus and come back stronger. Hough agreed, saying: “I think the last two weeks were definitely stronger.” Sam earned four 6s, for a total of 24 points.

Riker Lynch: The judges liked the R5 band member’s Salsa, but Inaba said she wanted to see Lynch dominate his pro partner, Allison Holker, more. Hough agreed, saying the pair danced well separately but needed more chemistry and interaction together. Goodman said he didn’t think Lynch was the best dancer this season, but added: “You’re not the best but you could be, because you’ve got flair.” Tonioli said the performance was “Salsa full throttle.” Lynch earned three 9s and a 7, for a total of 34 points.

Suzanne Somers: The actress, wearing a fruit-laden headdress, turned in a judge-pleasing Salsa, although Inaba said she’d like to see more emotional depth from Somers at this stage of the competition. Somers’ partner, Tony Dovolani, said he and the actress put everything they had into the performance. Hough and Tonioli both remarked that the routine had lots of Salsa content, but both saw mistakes. “You lost a couple of steps...but good performance,” Tonioli said. Goodman told Somers the routine was “a bit like your headdress: that was juicy, fruity and full of fun.” Somers earned three 6s and a 7, for a total of 25 points.

Chris Soules:
Coming off a disappointing performance last week, the Bachelor star was determined to do better with his Argentine Tango and he did. “You are the comeback kid!” an enthusiastic Hough said. Tonioli agreed, calling Soules “so much stronger, so connected, so present.” “I could feel the sparks fly between you two,” he said, referring to Soules’s partner, Witney Carson. Inaba said she was impressed with the way Soules carried himself. “You were powerful, you were magnificent,” she said. Goodman said Soules put in the work after a bad prior week. “For me, that’s the best dance you’ve done, so well done for that.” Soules earned four 7s, for a total of 28 points.

Robert Herjavec: Bruno told the Shark Tank star that his smoldering Rumba demonstrated commitment between him and his pro partner, Kym Johnson, but also said Herjavec needed to work on his hands and the continuous flow of the dance style. Saying the pair’s chemistry was “ridiculous,” Inaba advised Herjavec to provide a firmer frame for her partner and sustain his movement more. Herjavec complied by demonstrating more movement during the judges’ critique. When Goodman told him he was “middle of the pack” and needed better hip action and more fluidity, Herjavec also started moving and the audience cheered. Hough went against her fellow judges, saying: “I thought that was one of your best performances.” Herjavec earned three 7s and an 8, for 29 points.

Patti LaBelle: The singer’s Cha Cha was a crowd-pleaser but all four judges said the routine needed more content at this stage of the competition. Inaba said that, compared to last week’s performance, LaBelle’s routine left her “a little underwhelmed.” Goodman told the singer she had “great musicality” and charm, but directed his criticism about more content to her pro partner, Artem Chigvintsev. LaBelle earned two 5s and two 6s, for a total of 22 points.

Willow Shields: The 14-year-old actress earned a standing ovation for her intense Paso Doble. “First Paso of the season. That’s going to be hard to beat,” Goodman said. Hough said the actress had improved “beyond belief” every week. “Keep doing what you’re doing,” she said. Tonioli said Shields was getting the taste of the competition and learning how to become a dancer, and Inaba said the actress was “a seasoned performer” when she hit the dance floor. Shields earned four 8s, for a total of 32 points.

Noah Galloway: The U.S. Army veteran is a double amputee and has been dancing with a prosthetic leg. For his Argentine Tango, he rehearsed with a prosthetic arm for the first time but ultimately decided not to use it. Despite that, he showed great strength and dexterity, bending and lifting his pro partner, Sharna Burgess. Hough said she was “blown away” by Galloway’s flexibility and praised Burgess’s choreography. Goodman agreed. “Your imaginative choreography is fantastic,” Goodman told Burgess. Tonioli said Galloway’s lifts were “out of this world.” Inaba also praised Galloway, but drew boos from the crowd when she mentioned that she saw an out-of-sync step from Galloway. Galloway earned two 7s and two 8s, for a total of 30 points.

Nastia Liukin: The Olympian’s Samba with partner Derek Hough earned mixed reviews from the judges. Inaba loved Liukin’s flexibility but Tonioli cautioned against being so flexible that Liukin overextended her moves. Goodman called Liukin “a fantastic dancer.” Liukin earned two 9s and two 8s, for a total of 34 points.

Monday night’s scores:

  • Nastia Liukin and Derek Hough: 34
  • Riker Lynch and Allison Holker: 34
  • Rumer Willis and Valentin Chmerkovskiy: 33
  • Willow Shields and Mark Ballas: 32
  • Noah Galloway and Sharna Burgess: 30
  • Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson: 29
  • Chris Soules and Witney Carson: 28
  • Suzanne Somers and Tony Dovolani: 25
  • Michael Sam and Peta Murgatroyd: 24
  • Charlotte McKinney and Keo Motsepe: 22 (They were voted off.)
  • Patti LaBelle and Artem Chigvintsev: 22

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

Paula Patton Says After Split from Robin Thicke She Became ‘a Real Woman’

Ida Astute/ABC(NEW YORK) — Paula Patton and Robin Thicke are not yet officially divorced, but the actress says she's already a changed woman since splitting from the "Blurred Lines" singer last year.

"I live in a place of gratitude and [I'm] growing up in many ways, I think. I moved from my parents' house to moving in with Robin," she says on Tuesday's episode of The Meredith Vieira Show, according to a preview clip obtained by E! News. "And now I'm like becoming an adult at this old age. I'm really like a real woman now."

The former high-school sweethearts wed in June 2005 and split in February 2014 after rumors of Thicke's infidelity.

"You know I'm doing really well. It's been a long year and a lot of challenges but I've grown quite a bit and [I'm] just getting used to change," she explains, adding that she tries to "embrace it and just be thankful for everything I do have."

Their divorce will be finalized on April 14. The two will share custody of their 4-year-old son Julian.

Vin Diesel Teases Sequels to “Furious 7” and “XXX”

ABC/Randy Holmes(LOS ANGELES) — On Monday's Jimmy Kimmel Live!Furious 7 star Vin Diesel promoted the seventh movie in the franchise, and hinted that despite some rumors to the contrary, an eighth Fast and the Furious movie is in the future.

In the same way they teased Jason Statham's character at the end of Fast 6, only to have him emerge as the main heavy in the follow-up, Diesel explains series newcomer Kurt Russell plays a character who has a much bigger role in an upcoming adventure.

"You know I always think of these films...as trilogies," the actor explained. "We really hired [Russell] because of a story that follows us, that takes place in New York."

Speaking of follow-ups, Diesel also hinted he's in for another XXX movie, and explained to Kimmel that fans can thank Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg.

Diesel starred as extreme athlete-turned spy Xander Cage in the 2002 original, only to be replaced, improbably, by Ice Cube in the far less successful 2005 sequel XXX: State of the Union. In that film, Diesel's character was said to have been killed on a mission, although a DVD extra featuring Diesel's stunt double, shot from behind, purported to show Cage killed in an exploding building.

However, the rumors of his demise have apparently been greatly exaggerated.

Diesel explained he took a meeting with Zuckerberg, who the actor claims did some work on his Facebook page: "I said I wanted to take some of the spam off my page," the actor said of the billionaire, to which Kimmel replied, "You treated him like an IT guy, basically." 

"Basically," Diesel laughed.

The actor said Zuckerberg told him, "I want another XXX," which got the star thinking. "So I was like, 'Hm, another XXX...' the actor mugged, as the crowd cheered approvingly.

Furious 7 opens nationwide Friday.

Robin Williams' Wife and Kids' Lawyers Meet in Court

Jason Kempin/Getty Images(SAN FRANCISCO) -- Legal teams for Robin Williams' widow and for his three children appeared in a San Francisco courtroom Monday to determine who will get what of the late actor's estate.

Lawyers for both parties said they hope to have the matter resolved by June 1, the date set for the next hearing.

"This is very, very typical," said James Wagstaffe, an attorney for Susan Williams. "The court recognized that this is an amicable matter. ... His wife and her two sons with whom he lived for many years can stay in the home and not have the home stripped of normal things that are in a home, like art and furniture, and she can keep her wedding presents."

Susan Williams, the late comedian's third wife, filed paperwork this past December to determine who had rights to his things. She asked the court to exclude the contents of their San Francisco area home from what his three children from previous marriages were allowed to have.

Susan Williams said her husband's trust intended to distribute items from his other home in Napa, Calif., as opposed to the one they shared, according to the court documents.

The late movie star's adult children, Zachary, Zelda and Cody, claim that Susan Williams is robbing them of their father's things.

"My brothers and I have not at any point since dad’s death been invited to or visited his and Susan’s house in Tiburon, nor have we removed anything from it," Zelda Williams wrote Monday in a Tumblr post.

"They are disturbed that this petition has been filed and we are here because as an intensely private person, Mr. Williams wouldn't have wanted this," attorney Andrew Bassak, who represents the trustees, said Monday. "That is troubling to the trustees as close confidants of Mr. Williams."

"It's painful," said Meredith Bushnell, another lawyer representing the children. "They were very close with their father."

Williams was 63 when he died at his home last August, later deemed by authorities to be a suicide. Shortly thereafter, Susan Williams revealed that the late actor had struggled with depression and had been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease shortly before his death.
