Jewel, Ty Murray
Jewel and rodeo star Ty Murray are splitting after nearly six years of marriage and 16 years together.
"My husband, friend and partner of 16 years and I have decided to get a divorce," Jewel announced on her blog. "For some time we have been engaged in a private and difficult, but thoughtful and tender undoing of ourselves. Allowing ourselves the time and space to redefine what we are to each other with love rather than malice.
Johnny Sequoyah, Delroy Lindo
It's hard not to want to believe in talents like Alfonso Cuaron (of the amazing Gravity) and J.J. Abrams (no TV explanation necessary). These two very busy visionaries lend their names, and Cuaron his directing chops (in the pilot episode, anyway), for NBC's otherwise painfully derivative Believe (Monday, 10/9c), which plays like one of those middling Stephen King melodramas about supernaturally gifted children on the run for their lives.
Cuaron elevates the stock clichés with visual motifs of a butterfly providing mystical guidance and a dizzying flock of pigeons (my idea of a living nightmare) subduing a Big Bad Female Assassin in a loft. It's a handsome looking pilot, even at its most predictably familiar. And as Bo, the spunky little girl whose psychic and paranormal gifts seem to have no end — or, maddeningly, definition — Johnny Sequoyah is agreeable company, never too cute even when the script calls for Bo to be cloyingly precious. Because believe it or not, Believe feels it necessary to squelch the chase-thriller elements with schmaltzy subplots reminiscent of Fox's short-lived Touch. Bo knows goodness, and in between close calls as she eludes her well-funded potential kidnappers, she somehow finds time to inspire a young doctor to get past his crisis of confidence.
Thanks to her impressive musical knowledge and her easygoing charm, Jewel has had no trouble fitting in on this season of The Sing-Off.
But it seems no one has taken to Season 4's new addition more than...
Ben Folds, Jewel and Shawn Stockman
It's been almost two years since The Sing-Off last serenaded viewers, but the a cappella competition is back and hotter than ever!
In this exclusive sneak peek from Season 4 (Dec. 9, 9/8c), one of the groups blows the judges -- including new addition Jewel -- away with a cover of...
No one saves face in director Steven Soderbergh's ghoulishly entertaining, opulently produced Behind the Candelabra (Sunday, 9/8c), HBO's grandest, gaudiest and most fascinating movie in quite a long while — probably since last year's Game Change, in which Julianne Moore's uncanny impersonation of Sarah Palin swept the awards the way Michael Douglas is likely to repeat with his equally astonishing transformation into the flamboyant but closeted "Mr. Showmanship" Liberace.
Jewel, June Carter
Jewel gave fans a sneak peek of what they can expect from her portrayal of June Carter Cash in the upcoming Lifetime movie, The June Carter Cash Story.
Jewel will play June Carter Cash in the upcoming Lifetime biopic, The June Carter Cash Story, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
"Many people know about the legendary love story of Johnny and June, but June Carter Cash has her own epic journey filled with triumphs, tragedies, loves and losses," Lifetime executive Rob Sharenow said. "This movie will explore all aspects of the woman behind the icon, and we're thrilled Jewel will be playing the role."
Now that the blind auditions have swiveled to a halt, it's time for The Voice's four coaches — Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera — to put their teams to the test. The crop of singers will be narrowed down as they face off head-to-head for the final spots on their coach's team. "The big difference this year is it's way more competitive," says exec producer Mark Burnett...
Where have all the harsh judges gone? Following Simon Cowell's 9-year mean streak on American Idol, it's become increasingly difficult to find a tough-talking judge on singing competition shows like The X Factor and Idol.
However, The Voice's four coaches insist they're getting tougher this time around.
"This year, we are diving more into critiquing. ... You see us more in depth in the coaching process," Christina Aguilera told reporters at NBC's Winter TV preview Friday. "I think this year you're going to see it more. Last year we were all finding our...
Disorientation is nothing new for the loyal viewer — we hardy few — of Fox's fantastically bizarre Fringe (9/8c).
