So much for not burning bridges!
A week after filming her final episode of America's Got Talent, Sharon Osbourne says she won't return to NBC in any capacity, even though five years of options remain on her contract.
"They don't want me, and I don't want them," Osbourne tells The Hollywood Reporter. "I never want to hear from them again."
Comedian Lisa Lampanelli, who appeared in the last season of Celebrity Apprentice, says she has lost more than 80 pounds after having most of her stomach removed through gastric sleeve surgery earlier this year — and she's still shedding weight.
Season 7 of America's Got Talent came to an end Thursday night, crowning a winner and bidding farewell to judge Sharon Osbourne.
While Osbourne's departure didn't come as a surprise, the victory announcement might have. Olate Dogs, a troupe of acrobatic pups, beat out their human finalist counterparts to take the title. After taking the $1 million prize, they'll be heading to Vegas to headline their own show.
Jimmy Kimmel points to an enormous new treadmill in his office. The Jimmy Kimmel Live! host recently installed the contraption, which sports a large tabletop to conduct business while exercising, and has taken to walking on it while working. "I read somewhere that sitting all day can cut 15 or 20 years off your life," he explains. "It's worse than smoking. We weren't meant to sit this much."
One word sums up the second installment of America's Got Talent's semifinals: puppies! Why? Because when you have a brood of precious pups performing acrobatics, how can you remember any of the other acts?
When Olate Dogs took the stage Tuesday night, their troupe of well-trained dogs showcased a range of impressive skills, including jumping rope, back flips, a group scooter ride and even a conga line! Seriously, how can you compete with that?
During Tuesday's America's Got Talent semifinals, judge Howard Stern named William Close the frontrunner, but it was 14-year-old Edon who stole the show.
The singer received a standing ovation for his rendition of One Direction's smash hit "What Makes You Beautiful." Following Edon's impassioned performance, Howie Mandel and Sharon Osbourne were on their feet while the crowd enthusiastically chanted his name.
Media mogul Oprah Winfrey topped Forbes' list of the highest-paid celebrities, raking in $165 million between May 2011 and May 2012.
Winfrey, whose earnings actually fell by $125 million from the previous year, remains at the top thanks to the final season of The Oprah Winfrey Show, as well as her eponymous magazine, OWN, her spin-off shows and Sirius radio deal.
Who Earns What: TV's highest-paid stars
Coming in just behind Winfrey is movie director Michael Bay, who earned $160 million. His Blockbuster film Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon, which he earns profits on, took in a whopping $1.1 billion at the box office.
Steven Spielberg took the No. 3 spot, earning $130 million in the last year. His company DreamWorks produced Falling Skies, Terra Nova and Smash for television and the Oscar-nominated films The Adventures of Tintin and War Horse.
Who are Hollywood's highest-paid actresses?
Howard Stern apparently went too far.
NBC reprimanded the America's Got Talent judge after he called fellow NBC star Jay Leno a "spineless maggot" on his Sirius XM Radio Show. The comment was...
Nick Cannon, Ben Blaque
We thought we'd seen it all on America's Got Talent, but crossbow performer Ben Blaque proved us wrong. On Tuesday's wild card episode, judges Howie Mandel, Howard Stern and Sharon Osbourne each brought back four picks for a shot at redemption. Without a doubt, Blaque was one of the few who redeemed himself by performing what is possibly the most dangerous act to ever hit the AGT stage.
America's Got Gabby!
Olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas will make a guest appearance on the America's Got Talent results show Wednesday night.
AGT returned this week after a two-week hiatus while NBC covered the Olympics.
