Kelly Ripa is expecting her third child with hubby Mark Consuelos in February. The soap star-turned-talk-show spitfire made the announcement on Wednesday's Live with Regis and Kelly.
We hate to say we told you so, but doggone it, we did tell you so. On last night's first-season finale of American Idol, the search for a superstar ended with Kelly Clarkson being awarded a recording contract worth a cool $1 million. Don't feel too bad for runner-up Justin Guarini, though: As the ostensible loser, the lucky stiff won't have to fill his first CD single with "A Moment Like This," the lachrymose power ballad that the show commissioned to ensure the victor's chart success. Um, is it too late to tack on Clarkson's ballsy cover of Aretha Franklin's "Respect"? Pretty please? Clarkson's single is due Sept. 17.
Heather Mills volunteered to sign a prenuptial agreement before marrying former Beatle Paul McCartney in June. But apparently, it was an offer he could and did refuse. "I wanted to prove that I love him for him," she tells October's Vanity Fair. "He said, 'I wouldn't let you'." Isn't that romantic... and dumb.
If those popularity polls are any indication, Texas cocktail waitress Kelly Clarkson is the odds-on favorite to win American Idol tonight (live 8-10 pm/ET on Fox). But as host Ryan Seacrest points out, don't underestimate Justin Guarini's core fan base.
"You have a lot of teenage girls who watch the TV show but probably don't participate in those online and newspaper polls," he tells TV Guide Online. "And like we've seen in the past with Tamyra [Gray], anything can happen."
That's a sentiment shared by Judge Dread Simon Cowell. Although the acid-tongued critic confesses he's personally rooting for Clarkson, he says that her victory is hardly a foregone conclusion. "You've got to remember, every week someone's voted out so all of those votes have to go to somebody else," he notes. "Also, in this competition, you're judged by [your performance that] night. Anything can happe
TNT is cutting loose Witchblade. In a surprise move, the network has axed its signature drama series after two seasons. Variety speculates that the decision may have been partly based on the personal problems of series star Yancy Butler, whose recent stint in alcohol rehab forced the show to briefly cease production.

After making a killing in blockbusters, A-listers such as Brad Pitt and Renée Zellweger tend to go pale whenever their old slasher flicks turn up on cable. Yet, no matter how successful John Hensley becomes, the Witchblade co-star isn't likely to scream bloody murder over a broadcast of his indie gorefest, Campfire Stories (which bypassed the multiplex and recently went straight to video).
"I did it right after the pilot for [ABC's ill-fated 2000 Gabriel Byrne sitcom] Madigan Men," the 25-year-old tells TV Guide Online. "It was described to me as being just as comical as it is gruesome, and the idea of getting splattered and all that sounded
"I really like that song. I'll be at my crib listening to that song really loud and I'll be breakin' to it. Don't tell nobody that." Soul superstar Musiq confiding to TV Guide Online his secret obsession with Madonna's similiarly-named hit song "Music."
Don't hold your breath for The Bill Clinton Show. Despite reports, the former President told Larry King that he has no immediate plans to enter the talk show fray. "Maybe sometime later in my life I'd like to do it," he said on Tuesday's Larry King Live. "It would be intriguing to me because I like to talk to people... [But] you have to be here every day, and ... a lot of the work I do requires me to travel. I really believe I should always spend more than half my time on public service, so I just don't see how I can do it." Clinton reportedly had been in discussions with both CBS and NBC about a show.
