'The View, 'Bold And The Beautiful' Win At Daytime Emmy Awards

August 31st, 2009 8:36am EDT
The View
Ellen DeGeneres has lost her crown as the Queen of daytime TV - the hosts of The View ended her four-year run as Best Talkshow Host at the Daytime Emmy Awards.

The beloved funnywoman had held on to the prize since 2005, but faltered at the ceremony on Sunday when she came up against "The View's" feisty foursome Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Barbara Walters.

But it wasn't all bad for DeGeneres - her daily chatshow pulled back by picking up four awards during the night.

CSI: Miami star Eva La Rue has become the latest celebrity to fall victim of the marriage magazine cover curse - she has called off her nuptials.

She also appeared on the cover of the publication, wearing a gown similar to the one she hoped to wear when she became Mrs. Cappuccio. But, like Courtney Thorne-Smith and Kelly Rowland before her, La Rue hasn't been able to make good on her we...

It was a night filled with diversity on Dancing With The Stars. Almost everyone performed a different type of dance, Michael Flatly, the Lord of the Dance, took Len's position for the night as a guest judge, and all the stars joined together to coordinate a hip hop routine.

Maurice Greene and Cheryl Burke were the first to take the floor, performing a Viennese waltz. Maurice was skeptical on dancing a ballroom-esque number because he had not done so since week one of the competition. He claimed his mind was on overload. He didn't get too bad critiques, but he did wind up with t...

Dancing With The Stars
After Misty May's painful farewell, no one was eliminated last week on Dancing With The Stars. However, the competition wasn't going to take last week's votes and scores lightly. Everything carried over from last week, making people like Rocco DiSpirito work even harder for a chance to dance another day.

This week the stars were assigned to dance either the tango or the samba and were judged accordingly. Judge Carrie Ann Inaba was cracking down this week claiming that by week four of the competition, people needed to start taking critiques and the dances seriously.

Up first, Maur...
