Bruce Jenner’s disclosure in a heavily promoted ABC News interview that he is in the midst of transitioning to a female gender identity comes at a time when TV has heightened interest in transgender life stories.
ABC Family took advantage of the natural tie-in to promote its upcoming docu series “Becoming Us” during Friday’s two-hour “20/20″ special featuring Diane Sawyer’s interview with Jenner, the Olympian and former “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star.
“Becoming Us” revolves around a teenage boy grappling with his father’s transition to a woman. The series premieres June 8 and hails from Ryan Seacrest Prods.
The Discovery Life channel earlier this month launched the unscripted series “New Girls on the Block.” The series focuses on six women in Kansas City, Mo., who are beginning to live openly as transgender. Conveyor Media has produced five hourlong episodes.
Discovery Life’s larger sibling, TLC, is preparing »

Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris may the biggest stars around, but how did these two become an item? Well, it turns out that the pop star's other famous pals, the ladies of Haim, may have had a hand in introducing the new lovebirds!

"We've known Calvin for a while. He put out a record in like 2008 or 2009, like back in the day, and I used to go to all of his shows and I was a big fan. We just kind of linked up.

The entire Beckham family was on hand for Burberry's London in Los Angeles event at the Griffith Observatory on Thursday night. Even though there was lots of spectacular fashion to behold - including a runway show that featured Naomi Campbell, Jourdan Dunn, and The Late Late Show host James Corden - the Beckhams easily grabbed all the attention with their presence at the party. The crew was decked out in designs from the iconic British brand as they sat front row for the festivities; Victoria kept her arm around middle son Romeo while David held little Harper in his lap next to Vogue editor Anna Wintour - how adorable is her tiny Burberry trench dress? Brooklyn, 16, who has become a bit of a star in his own right, took the opportunity to snap photos with some of the party's high-profile guests for his Instagram fans. He posed with Ryan Seacrest, »

Things got tense on American Idol last night between judge Harry Connick Jr. and contestant Quentin Alexander. Quentin, who performed Lenny Kravitz's "Are You Gonna Go My Way," voiced his displeasure at Joey Cook and Rayvon Owen being in danger of elimination, calling it "wack." "This sucks," he told Ryan Seacrest pointing to the stage with Joey and Rayvon in the danger seats. "We have two of the best vocalists, my best friend is sitting over there. This whole thing is wack, but I'm going to shut up right now." Harry responded to the upset contestant during the show. "Quentin, if it's that wack, then you can always go home because Idol is paying a lot of money to give »
It's on! Things got awkward on American Idol during Top 7 week when judge Harry Connick, Jr. took issue with something singer Quentin Alexander told Ryan Seacrest after his first performance of the night. "This sucks," the 21-year-old told the Idol host after the judges commented on his performance of Lenny Kravitz's "Are You Gonna Go My Way."

Talk about awkward! On Wednesday's "American Idol," one contestant seemed a little more than frustrated after two of his friends were set to be eliminated ... calling the entire show "wack." Quentin Alexander was on stage talking to Ryan Seacrest about the night, when he went on a tirade against the singing series. Apparently, his comments didn't sit too well with judge Harry Connick, Jr. who called out the aspiring singer for his "disrespectful" commentary. Check out the clip above -- it gets a little aggressive! Alexander seemed visibly upset on stage while talking to Seacrest, who then asked Quentin what was going through his head. "This sucks," he told Ryan. "We've got two of the best vocalists, my best friend, sitting over there, this whole thing is wack, but I'm going to shut up right now." Seacrest tried to console the contestant by telling him that either one of his »

Well, that was uncomfortable. Harry Connick Jr. took “American Idol” contestant Quentin Alexander to task on Wednesday’s show when the contestant fell out of line following his performance and declared, “This whole thing is wack.” After a solid rendition of Lenny Kravitz‘s “Are You Gonna Go My Way,” Alexander sported quite the sourpuss look, despite getting mostly positive feedback. Host Ryan Seacrest asked what’s up. “This sucks,” Alexander said, gesturing to the Bottom 2. “We have two of the best vocalists, my best friend is sitting over there, this whole thing is wack — and I’m going to shut up right now. »

Over the course of 14 seasons, American Idol has had its fair share of uncomfortable moments.
Chris Daughtry serving up a “Wait, I got eliminated?” grimace. Paula Abdul critiquing a song Jason Castro was about 45 minutes away from covering. (Fret not, old girl will be back in a judging capacity this summer on Fox!) Danny Gokey trying to out-Adam Adam Lambert — and failing like a 5-year-old taking the AP Physics exam — on “Dream On.”

Wednesday (April 15) night's "American Idol" theme is American Classics and America played some role in choosing the eligible songs and at some point, somehow, we'll find out who America put in the Bottom 2 and then America will get to go on Twitter and choose who we/they want to save. That's a lot of responsibility on you tonight, America. Good thing I only have to recap! Click through and follow along. 7:59 p.m. Et. Note to self: Clark Beckham is a person on "American Idol." Try to remember. 8:00 p.m. "Tonight we celebrate the songs you picked as American Classics," Ryan Seacrest says, underlining the confusion. And is Ryan already holding the results? Does that mean we've abandoned the envelope-presenters? That wasn't a good gimmick. But it wasn't a bad gimmick either... 8:01 p.m. Jennifer Lopez Fashion Show time! Yeah, there's no way she's touching anybody in the crowd tonight. »

Ryan Seacrest Prods.’ unscripted division is moving into a deal with Endemol Shine North America.
The agreement is not an outright acquisition of Rsp’s unscripted assets, like most of Endemol’s past pacts with independent production outfits. But Endemol Shine will take on the staff, development and overhead costs for Rsp’s busy unscripted wing, which is home to the Kardashian series on E!, Bravo’s “Shahs of Sunset” and ABC Family’s upcoming “Becoming Us,” among other shows.
The deal won’t kick in until the end of this year as Rsp is still in an unscripted TV financing deal with iHeartMedia (formerly Clear Channel) through year’s end. The Rsp banner will retain its moniker and staff, led by programming president Eugene Young and COO-cfo Jeff Refold.
“Ryan is not only one of the TV industry’s leading broadcasters, but over the last decade, he has also »

Odd "American Idol" Season 14 fact: Unless I'm missing something, every single remaining "American Idol" Finalist this season is from the Eastern or Central Time Zone. Daniel Seavey and Adanna Duru were the only two contestants from the West Coast and they're gone. Last week, the otherwise dismal Daniel got hosed by the "Idol" Twitter Save, in which his geographic core was disenfranchised if they happened not to be watching an online live feed. The "Idol" Twitter Save returns on Wednesday (April 8), but with all of the singers' hometowns watching the same feed, nobody can claim that they're being Seaveyed. And, once again, viewers from outside of the Et/Ct time zones have been cut out of the elimination process. Tonight's theme is Billboard Hits, so follow along and chime in with your own thoughts... 7:59 p.m. Et. Has anybody else lost all sense of how many people are still left on "Idol" this season? »

Some 50 bloggers, writers and disc jockeys received a blast from the past this week in the form of creepy gifts.
From lamb chop puppets to a He-Man hat, the packages contained a note from a high school friend, “Gordo,” that referenced trips, obsessions, phobias or other personal trivia and tidbits. No, this was not a case of media stalking on a grand scale.
“We wanted to convey the cleverness and creepiness of the film itself,” said Oren Aviv, president and chief content officer of the motion picture group at Stx. “You have to create a sense of urgency and the more personalized the material, the more people will talk about it.”
The gifts arrived a day before the release of the first trailer for “The Gift,” the story of a couple »

While it'll be some time before we get to hear Justin Bieber's new album, one thing is for sure - it will be emotional. The 21-year-old singer admitted to Ryan Seacrest on Thursday that his ex, Selena Gomez, is a current muse. Bieber and Gomez, 22, began dating quietly in 2010 and in the ensuing years, had an on-again-off-again romance, part of which inspired Gomez's 2014 single "The Heart Wants What It Wants." When asked by the On Air host about Gomez's single, Bieber revealed that "a lot of my inspiration comes from [Gomez]." "It was a long relationship that created heartbreak and created happiness, »
