MasterChef is back this week with a two-hour episode, which means double eliminations, right? Hmmm... We begin with a mystery box put together by none other than the judges' sons.
Kanye West just scored some major brownie points with his girlfriend Kim Kardashian.
The rapper, 36, sat down Monday for a rare interview with Kardashian's mom, Kris Jenner, for her...
President Barack Obama, Jay Leno
President Barack Obama sat down with Jay Leno on Tuesday night where the two chatted about his recent lunch with Hillary Clinton, his "bromance" with Senator John McCain, the Trayvon Martin case and more.
After talking politics and policy, Leno got right to business asking about his recent meeting with possible future presidential candidate Clinton. "Who invited who to lunch?" Leno asked. "I invited her... And we had a great time," Obama said. "She had that post-administration glow. You know, when folks leave the White House, like two weeks later they look great." Joking about Clinton taking over, Leno added, "Did you notice her measuring the drapes or anything like that?" "Keep in mind she's been there before," Obama said. "She doesn't have to measure them."
President Barack Obama will return to The Tonight Show with Jay Leno next week, NBC announced Wednesday.
White House reporter Helen Thomas, who covered every President from John F. Kennedy to Barack Obama, has died, CNN reports. She was 92.
The trailblazing journalist died in her Washington apartment Saturday morning after a long illness, according to The Gridiron Club and Foundation, a journalistic organization for which Thomas once served as president.
Born in Winchester, Ky., she joined United Press in 1943 and began covering president-elect Kennedy in 1960. She became the official UPI White House correspondent in January 1961. She was known for sitting in an assigned seat on the front row in the briefing room, asking tough, pointed questions and always ending every press conference by saying, "Thank you, Mr. President."
Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Barbara Walters
Elisabeth Hasselbeck has officially said her farewell to The View.
On Wednesday morning, Hasselbeck — who walked on stage arm-and-arm with Barbara Walters — confirmed it was her final day on the ABC daytime program and that she'd be joining the couch on Fox and Friends in September.
On Tuesday, Amanda Bynes will be in court to face charges in her bong-throwing arrest from May. It's a far cry from where the former Nickelodeon star was just six years ago, when her career seemed full of promise after charming turns in She's the Man, Hairspray and Sydney White.
But in recent years — or more specifically, in the past 12 months — the 27-year-old's behavior has gone from odd to bizarre to downright alarming at times between her legal woes, strange appearances and crazy tweets. Here's a timeline:

The U.S. Supreme Court issued two landmark rulings related to the issue of same-sex marriage Wednesday. First, the court ruled that the federal Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage as between a man and a woman, is unconstitutional — paving the way for legally married same-sex couples to receive the same federal benefits as straight married couples. Second, the Court dismissed an appeal against California's Proposition 8, which banned same-sex marriage in the state — meaning that same-sex marriage can resume in California.
Celebrities took to Twitter to voice their opinions on the rulings. Here are some of their reactions:

The Supreme Court has ruled that a key part of the Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional, The New York Times reports.
In a 5-4 vote Wednesday morning, the court struck down a portion of the 1996 law that previously denied federal benefits to married same-sex couples. "The federal statute is invalid, for no legitimate purpose overcomes the purpose and effect to disparage and injure those whom the State, by its marriage laws, sought to protect in personhood and dignity," Justice Anthony M. Kennedy wrote. "By seeking to displace this protection and treating those persons as living in marriages less respected than other, the federal statute is in violation of the Fifth Amendment."
