Hollywood was stunned by the unexpected death of Fast and the Furious star Paul Walker on Saturday night. Walker was involved in a single-car accident that ended in an explosion that claimed the lives of Walker and the car's driver. Here's what Walker's former co-stars and fellow celebrities had to say about his sudden passing:
When The X Factor first came to the U.S., the initial reaction was, "Why?" Unfortunately, three years later, the question remains the same.
Mario Lopez's wife Courtney gave birth to a baby boy on Monday evening.
"It's a boy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" the Extra host announced on Twitter. "Please welcome Dominic Lopez to the world! Couldn't be happier... @CourtneyMLopez & baby are doing just fine... :)"
Simon Cowell sits on a balcony overlooking the pool at the Beverly Hilton hotel and lights another cigarette. It's a tumultuous time for the fiery Brit, whose baby-daddy drama is dominating tabloid headlines just a month before The X Factor is set to premiere its do-or-die third season in the United States. But Cowell has rarely appeared more at ease. "I think you're really going to like it more this year," he says of his singing competition.
After last season's addition of judge Britney Spears proved to be a multimillion-dollar dud and original panelist L.A. Reid jumped ship (Demi Lovato is the only holdover from Season 2), Cowell again restructured the panel, this time focusing on experience and chemistry. Enter Kelly Rowland, a former member of Destiny's Child who worked on the U.K. version of The X Factor in 2011, and Paulina Rubio, a Latina superstar whose previous gigs include coaching the Mexican edition of The Voice. Mario Lopez will take on full hosting duties, after sharing last season with Khloe Kardashian.
The format itself is also undergoing some tweaks. Here, Cowell and his team discuss the show's new direction.
Sofia Vergara has been engaged to Nick Loeb for more than a year, but she hasn't finalized any plans for their wedding.
The Modern Family star is contemplating doing a "tiny" celebration, she told Extrahost Mario Lopez, in part because she went all out for her 40th birthday last year with a celebration that included more than 100 people.
