Photos: 32 Tgif Stars All Grown Up

9 December 2012 3:48 PM, PST

For kids of the '90s, the initials Tgif evoke memories of ABC's rotating Friday night lineup, which featured squeaky-clean fare such as "Full House," "Family Matters," "Step By Step" and "Boy Meets World." The latter, of course, has spawned a Disney Channel spinoff currently in the works, which will focus on the teenage daughter of "BMW" sweethearts Cory and Topanga.

In honor of "Girl Meets World," which signals the next generation of the sitcom characters with whom we spent our formative years, we're taking a look at what the erstwhile stars of Tgif look like as adults.

Surprise Winner At Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards

9 December 2012 3:22 PM, PST

The Los Angeles Film Critics Association (Lafca) handed out its 2012 awards on Sunday and "Amour" was a surprise choice for Best Picture. "The Master," Paul Thomas Anderson's weird and mediative drama about the origins of a religion not unlike Scientology, was named runner-up.

Directed by Michael Haneke, "Amour" is about a couple in their 80s and the struggles they encounter as old age and disease come between their relationship. The film stars Emmanuelle Riva, who tied with Jennifer Lawrence ("Silver Linings Playbook") for the Best Actress award from the Los Angeles Film Critics Association. "Amour" was won the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival in May and is a heavy favorite to win the Best Foreign Language Film trophy at the 85th annual Academy Awards.

While "The Master" didn't win Best Picture, the film cleaned up at the Lafca awards. Anderson was chosen as Best Director (Kathryn Bigelow »

'Playing For Keeps' Flops At The Box Office

9 December 2012 12:24 PM, PST

Gerard Butler's latest film, "Playing for Keeps" was panned by critics across the board. Now, the film is crashing in the box office as well.

On its opening weekend, the movie made a meager $6 million across 2,837 theaters. "Playing for Keeps," which also stars Jessica Biel, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Uma Thurman, was generally well-received by the audiences that did see it, earning a B+ CinemaScore. Butler's last movie, "Chasing Mavericks" also disappointed, making $2.2 million on its opening weekend.

On a generally quiet weekend, "Skyfall" took the number one spot with a weekend total of $11 million. To date, the latest James Bond movie has grossed $261.6 million domestically, for a global total of $918 million. The total of $918 million makes "Skyfall" Sony's highest-earning film ever.

"Rise of the Guardians" jumped ahead to reach number two in the box office this weekend. The animated holiday flick made $10.5 million this weekend. "Rise of the Guardians »

Just How Bad Is 'Playing For Keeps'?

9 December 2012 11:23 AM, PST

Playing for Keeps stars Gerard Butler as former professional soccer player George Dyer, who moves to Virginia in order to reconnect with family and becomes the coach of his kid’s soccer team in the process. Thrilling, right? Well, if you want to know whether or not George’s story has a happy ending, you’re in luck because I was one of the few people who saw it, so you don’t have to. Warning: Spoilers ahead. (But really, that’s the whole point of this, no?)

Dyer’s pro career ended with an injury, and now he’s broke and living in Principal Figgins’ (Iqbal Theba) guest-house. (Okay, he has a real name, but I can’t remember it.) At the beginning, we see George making what looks like a crappy audition tape for a sportscaster’s job. He takes the demo to Ben from Grey’s Anatomy »

Bruno Mars Covers 'Part Of Your World' From 'The Little Mermaid' (Video)

9 December 2012 11:02 AM, PST

Original Song: "Part Of Your World" from the classic Disney movie "The Little Mermaid."

Cover Artist: Singer Bruno Mars (who previously showed off his comedic chops hosting SNL in October).

How It's Different: Bruno, instead of our favorite cartoon mermaid, performed the song during his recent set at BBC’s Live Lounge. (Also: Bruno's apparently got 30 "thingamabobs" - not 20!)

Why We Love It: Well, it is the best song ever written, according to Bruno.

Better than the Original? Considering he admitted he had never been able to get through the cover without "choking up," we think Bruno did a pretty good job keeping it together while still channeling his inner-Ariel. Plus, he transitioned into "Under The Sea" like a pro. We'll call it a tie.

Are you into Bruno's version of "Part Of Your World?" What's your favorite classic Disney song? Sound off in the comments below or tweet @huffpostteen. »

Watch: Ne-Yo Breaks It Down On 'SNL'

9 December 2012 10:53 AM, PST

Ne-Yo hit "Saturday Night Live" last night to perform two songs. The episode was hosted by Jamie Foxx.

Ne-Yo first performed his hit single, "Let Me Love You." The song is a single off Ne-Yo's fifth studio album, "R.E.D.," or "Realizing Every Dream."

Later in the show, Ne-Yo slowed things down with a performance of his ballad, "She Is." While the recorded version of "She Is" features guest vocals from Tim McGraw, Ne-Yo performed it solo.

The singer tweeted to his fans multiple times Saturday night, voicing his excitement about being the musical guest for "SNL."

Released Oct. 31, "R.E.D." has received generally favorable reviews, but has never charted on Billboard.

Tyler Perry may be getting away from dressing in drag in his new thriller,

"Alex Cross," but the "Saturday Night Live" writers aren't ready to let go of Madea just yet.

Show Business Activists Cheer As High Court Takes Prop 8 Case

9 December 2012 9:50 AM, PST

The industry figures backing the federal suit to overturn California's Proposition 8 welcomed the news that the Supreme Court would review the case, and the show biz activists for same-sex marriage expressed confidence in the outcome.

It was just over four years ago, in the aftermath of the passage of the state's ban on gay nuptials, that Rob Reiner, his wife Michele and their two political consultants, Chad Griffin and Kristina Schake, hatched the idea to fight the initiative through the federal courts. Enlisting Ted Olson and David Boies, two legal eagles on opposite ends of the political spectrum, to lead the case provided a dose of publicity. David Geffen and Steve Bing provided the millions in seed money to get the effort launched. »

Ambulance Called To Honey Boo Boo's House

9 December 2012 9:42 AM, PST

What was supposed to be a happy occasion turned scary when Honey Boo Boo's dad Sugar Bear had a health scare during the family's Christmas toy drive last night (Dec. 8).

Paramedics were called to Alana Thompson's home in McIntyre, Ga., after Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson, 40, fell ill, E! News reports. Sugar Bear, who usually dresses up as Santa Claus and greets all the neighborhood kids for the toy drive, allegedly had high blood pressure.

"Usually you're allowed to sit on Sugar Bear's lap," a source at the scene told E! News. "But he was not feeling well ... they were worried his blood pressure was getting high."

"An ambulance was called to the house, but he was not taken off in it," the insider added, "[he] just got checked out by paramedics."

Scotland Yard Getting Involved With 2DayFM Kate Middleton Radio Hoax

9 December 2012 9:41 AM, PST

London — The reverberations from the death of a nurse who accepted a hoax phone call about the ill Duchess of Cambridge spread through two countries Sunday, as Australian authorities said London police had contacted them about a possible investigation.

The Australian radio station behind the call also announced an immediate review of its broadcast practices after the debacle, which began with a prank call made Tuesday to the hospital where the former Kate Middleton was being treated for acute morning sickness.

Two radio DJs managed to impersonate Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles and received confidential information about the Duchess's medical condition, which was broadcast on-air. The controversial prank took a dark twist three days later with the death of nurse Jacintha Saldanha, a 46-year-old mother of two, who was duped by the DJs despite their Australian accents.

The death has sparked an angry backlash against the DJs, who have »

HuffPost Workouts: Best Workout Songs Of 2012

9 December 2012 9:19 AM, PST

What marked your 2012 workouts more than, say Gangnam Style? Remember that June 16th run, propelled forward by Ne-Yo? Good times.

But in all seriousness, the right music can be the difference between a lackluster and inspired workout. Research consistently shows that working out with a rapid beat can improve speed, endurance and even enjoyment of the workout.

Putting together the best playlist can be tricky -- you have to account for not only music taste, but duration and beats per minute -- but there is little more satisfying than pushing yourself up a hill just as the beat of your favorite song drops. We at Healthy Living like to think we know a little something about playlists and so we've compiled our top picks for 2012.

From News Editor Amanda Chan's pop playlist to Associate Editor Sarah Klein's club music anthems, read on for our top workout picks of the »

Brandi Glanville Reveals She Needs Surgery To Remove Tumor

9 December 2012 9:08 AM, PST

"Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Brandi Glanville revealed she must undergo surgery to have a tumor removed.

Glanville will have surgery to remove the tumor from her breast, she told In Touch magazine. The reality star said after not feeling well for months she visited a doctor, who told her the cause of her sickness was the growing tumor. Thankfully, the mass is non-cancerous.

“I'm anxious about the recovery but have great friends who will be playing nurse," Glanville told In Touch. “I'm ready to get it over with and feel better."

Her health worries are not the only problems Glanville has had to deal with recently. The 40-year-old continues to fight with her ex-husband, Eddie Cibrian, and his new wife, singer LeAnn Rimes.

In a recent interview with Us Weekly, Glanville alleged that her 9-year-old son, Mason, became "extremely ill" after ingesting one of Rimes' laxative pills. But, »

Watch: Psy's Anti-American Performance Surfaces

9 December 2012 8:57 AM, PST

A partial video of singer Psy's controversial anti-American performance has surfaced, showing the "Gangnam Style" superstar destroying a mock military tank during a South Korean protest concert against the United States military.

On Friday, YouTube sensation Psy, otherwise known as Park Jae-Sang, made headlines when it was revealed that the "Gangnam Style" star sang lyrics from South Korean rock band N.E.X.T.'s song "Dear American," including: "Kill those f---ing Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives" and "Kill them all slowly and painfully."

Scroll For Video

The contentious Anti-American lyrics and photos from a 2004 protest concert were first posted on CNN's iReport in October. CNN reported that anti-American sentiment flared in the country after the brutal killing of a South Korean hostage by Iraqi insurgents in June that year. Earlier, in 2002, anger ignited when two South Korean schoolgirls were accidentally struck and killed by a U.S. »

Watch: Jamie Foxx Mocks Obama's 'White' Dancing

9 December 2012 8:51 AM, PST

Jamie Foxx returned to host "Saturday Night Live" for the second time this weekend, kicking things off with a classic "SNL" monologue complete with topical jokes, a well-executed movie plug and a surprise musical performance.

Right off the bat, Foxx declared that "Black is the new white" and used Jay-z, the Nets moving to Brooklyn, his portrayal of a slave in "Django Unchained" and Barack Obama's reelection as proof, repeatedly asking, "How black is that?" with delight.

As for President Obama, Foxx predicted that Barack's black side will take over during his second term (he can tell his white side ruled the first four years just by his dancing on "Ellen" alone):

“The next four years he’s even changing his name to President Barack Dikembe Mutombo Tupac Mandela Hussein Obama X,” Foxx joked.

Watch the full monologue above, which The NY Post called "refreshing" for bringing an underutilized perspective to the show. »

Romney Gaffe Wins Quote Of The Year

9 December 2012 8:49 AM, PST

New Haven, Conn. -- Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's comments about 47 percent of the population dependent on the government and "binders full of women" topped this year's best quotes, according to a Yale University librarian.

Fred Shapiro, associate librarian at Yale Law School, released his seventh annual list of the most notable quotations of the year.

"Debate remarks and gaffes actually seemed to play an important role in the ups and downs of the election campaign and may even have affected the ultimate outcome of the election," Shapiro said.

Romney, who lost the November election to President Barack Obama, made the 47 percent comment at a private fundraiser in May that was secretly recorded and posted online in September by Mother Jones magazine.

"There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what ... who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims. »

Watch: LeAnn Rimes Breaks Down In Interview

9 December 2012 8:45 AM, PST

It appears LeAnn Rimes' cheating scandal will always haunt her.

The singer, 30, opens up once again about her infamous 2009 affair with now-husband Eddie Cibrian, 39, in a sit-down interview with E! News' Giuliana Rancic tonight (Dec. 9) -- and breaks down discussing her heartbreaking decision to choose Cibrian over her husband Dean Sheremet.

Although Rimes still has issues with Cibrian's ex-wife Brandi Glanville -- who just called Rimes out last week for referring to her sons Mason, 9, and Jake, 5, as "her boys" -- nothing tops the pain she feels when thinking about destroying her seven-year marriage with Sheremet.

"Why act on it when you're both married and you both have families?" Rancic asks Rimes, who fell in love with Cibrian while shooting the Lifetime movie "Northern Lights." (Cibrian was in an eight-year marriage to Glanville at the time).

"That is a huge question. I never, ever in my heart want to hurt anyone, »
