Sherri Shepherd's Child Support Battle Escalates To Supreme Cour

KISS invaded the ballroom, and kicked things off with a rocking start for week four!

Martina Navratilova Eliminated on DWTS
After a killer kick off and week two’s struggles with the quickstep and jive, the stars gathered to find out who would be the first in the competition to go home. What a night! And I would say one of the most nerve-wracking. Especially since one of the contestants would be eliminated without having the opportunity to prove what they really could do on the dance floor.

However Sugarland helped ease the tension with their country tunes; and one by one contestants were told if they would be safe or placed in the bottom. The scores going into the elimination were the following in ranking orde...

Susan Boyle Chokes On 'The View,' Ends Performance Immediately

Susan Boyle
Susan Boyle was singing "O Holy Night" from her new album "The Gift" on The View when suddenly her voice cracked and she choked. However, the show must go on! Unless it doesn't.

In the middle of her glorious rendition, Susan Boyle appeared to lose her voice and immediately looked stage side for help. It's unclear if she was trying to keep them from interrupting her or telling them to end the song, but Whoopi Goldberg and Sherri Shepherd swooped in to end the odd moment.

If anything positive came out of the experience, it's that we all know now that Boyle doesn't lip-synch.

What We Were All Thinking - The Full Starpulse Oscars Recap

3/8/2010 1:50am EST
Oscar Feature
Tonight's Oscar ceremony is probably the most re-designed ceremony in Academy history.

Just look at all the changes. 10 Best Picture nominees, two hosts, no Best Song performances, more dance, a supposed streamlined show, and, weirdest of all, a request for no "thank yous" during the acceptance speeches.

Plus, a few of last year's tweaks will remain. They're sticking with the abhorrent practice of having five actors come out and sing the praises of the year's present crop of nominees (at least only in the Leading categories this year), and the producers are insistent on further expandin...

Buying land next to the course's 17th hole as a bargaining strategy, the club's order is disrupted as C-Note and his entourage bring their flashy, hip-hop lifestyle to the prim and proper country club. As Cummings attempts to revoke his new members, C-Note must restore his honor and chan...

Rosie O’Donnell
Fifty-four percent of those who participated in a recent poll say they will not miss Rosie O’Donnell when she exits The View in June. A surprising statistic given that ratings have risen significantly – 17 percent – since O’Donnell joined the daytime talk show last September.

Forty-eight percent say that they would be opposed to The View adding a male voice to the panel, while 34 percent say it would depend on who the male co-host is.
