Would you stay with your husband if he allegedly held a knife to your throat?
Apparently Brooke Mueller will. High-profile lawyer, Yale Galanter, appeared on Larry King Live last night, Dec. 30, and insisted that the incident that occurred on Dec. 25th between the pair, was just a “bad marital moment.”
Despite the fact that Charlie was charged with 2nd degree assault, menacing, and criminal mischief, Galanter, who repped Oj Simpson in his Las Vegas memorabilia-heist case, insists, “They want to reconcile. They want to work on their marriage. They have two beautiful babies that they are trying to raise.”
This is also despite the fact that Brooke admitted to the police in her affadavit that this kind of incident had happened before. Allegedly Charlie had pushed Brooke down to the floor where she hit her head a few months ago, during another raging argument, according to RadarOnline.

David Archuleta continues to bring holiday cheer to the talk show circuit.
The "American Idol" runner-up performed a very sweet rendition of "Melodies of Christmas" on "Live With Regis and Kelly" Tuesday.
His smooth voice is well suited for the happy song, and it's apparent that Christmas means a lot to Archie.
The post-song interview with Kelly and husband Mark Consuelos is particularly fun because David explains how the holidays are celebrated at his home, and we get to see a picture of him and his four siblings, many who look a lot like him.
Check out the performance:
David can next be seen and heard on the "Larry King Live" holiday special on CNN on Dec. 23 at 9 Et/Pt.

She may have been his lucky charm, but Kate Hudson and Yankee slugger Alex Rodriguez needed more than luck to keep their romance alive. "They're over," says a source. "They've been broken up for a couple of weeks. They just wanted things to die down around them. [Kate and Alex] both seem to totally fine. They decided to move on." Together since the spring, the couple were seen together all over the country and most recently in Europe where Hudson was doing press for her latest flick, Nine.

Reitman’s “Up in the Air” Fails to Excite, Surprise
First things first. Whenever I hear of a new film being mentioned in the same sentence as the word “oscar,” I have a tendency to watch the film with a more scrupulous eye. A lot of us do, in fact. To me, the film has to earn the title since the word “oscar” is one which we tend to associate with the best of the best. Many of you purchase a movie ticket knowing that you’re in good hands whenever you hear the critics raving about how oscar-worthy a movie is. For this film, I’ll stick to being a critic. I’ll leave the raving to someone else.
This month’s smorgasbord of happy-go-lucky holiday movies is likely to cannibalize itself at the box office as most films are about the »

The spectacle of near-celebrities going on Larry King Live to ask for the return of their privacy has been one of the long-running jokes of our era. Now Tiger Woods puts a new spin on it with his profound-apology-but-give-me-my privacy press release. Memo to Tiger: if you really wanted your privacy, maybe you should just have played championship golf, lived on the prize money, and gone home. Maybe you shouldn't have inked dozens of deals with sponsors who were using your name and image to create a bond with potential consumers, a bond that's implicitly aspirational. The grandaddy of such advertising in the modern age, of course, is three simple words: "Be Like Mike". Once you're asking people to be like you, you're inviting them to wonder about the "you" they're supposed to want to be like. End of privacy. »

Congress on Monday called for an aspiring reality TV show couple to testify and explain how they successfully crashed a private White House dinner party last Tuesday night, according to a new report. CNN reports that House Homeland Security Committee chairman Rep. Bennie Thompson is asking for both the couple and the head of the Secret Service, Mark Sullivan, to testify at a hearing on Thursday about the breakdown in security that ultimately allowed the couple to meet President Barack Obama without being on the party's guest list. "This is a time for answers, recognition of security deficiencies past and present, and remedies to ensure the strength of the Secret Service and the safety of those under its protection," Thompson said in a statement to CNN. "This is not the time for political games or scapegoating to distract our attention from the careful oversight we must apply to the Secret Service and its mission. »
Update: The couple insists they are not shopping a sit-down for big bucks or for free. "This is an erroneous report and allegation," Mahogany Jones, a rep for the pair, tells E! News. "The Salahis are not shopping any interviews or demanding any money from any media networks to tell their story. They are not talking with the press or making any formal interviews or statements at this time." This, Jones says, is also the reason the duo won't be crashing Larry King Live tonight. ________ Maybe if the Secret Service made a cash offer, those White House intruders would be more amenable to a sit-down. While reality-tv wannabes Michaele and Tareq Salahi have apparently yet »

Chris Brown has dodged questions regarding his altercation with Rihanna in his previous TV appearances, but he is said to bare all in ABC's "20/20". The network has announced that on the upcoming edition of the TV newsmagazine program, the 20-year-old singer will come clean and provide details on the February incident.
The so-called an "in-depth" talk with "Good Morning America" anchor Robin Roberts has already been taped, and is scheduled to be aired on December 11. Jeffrey Schneider, the spokesman for the network, confirmed that the "I Can Transform Ya" singer will not perform live, but parts of his interview may be aired on "Gma".
The singer, who is awaiting the December 8 U.S. release of his new album "Graffiti", has had several interviews prior to this one. He talked to Larry King of "Larry King Live" among others. However, his sit-down with "20/20" came after Rihanna had a one-on-one interview with »
Tareq and Michaele Salahi's alleged crashing of the White House state dinner Tuesday night raises more questions than just how security let them through.
To what lengths will people go to in order to land on a reality TV series? Should reality show producers actually consider and condone the actions of those who've broken the law specifically to get attention to get on the show? Would TV viewers want to watch said scofflaws getting more fame and fortune on their own shows?
It's no surprise that reality shows have been a breeding ground for attention seekers. Any regular Joe nowadays can have their 15 minutes in the sun and possibly even parlay that into extended fame. Some have even made a career out of reality TV show-hopping. Megan Hauserman, we are definitely looking at you.
But with the competition so fierce to land on these shows, those craving fame have been »
Just days ago, they were hobnobbing with Vice President Joe Biden, Slumdog Millionaire's composer, and Washington D.C.'s elite. Now a Virginia socialite couple is being investigated by the Secret Service for being perhaps history's most successful gatecrashers. Dressed in a tux and fancy sari and followed by a reality-show crew, Tareq and Michaele Salahi somehow managed to make it through Marine guards, Secret Service details and White House staff to rub elbows with some of the most powerful people in the world at President Barack Obama's first state dinner, in honor of the Indian prime minister, »

If you're a David Lynch fan, you probably know he's been spending the bulk of his time on transcendental meditation lately. He's even started his own foundation, which seeks not only to promote awareness about meditation, but also to bring it to schools nationwide.
With so much time devoted to the practice, Lynch has not made a feature since Inland Empire (2006). But in a recent interview with Vulture, the 63-year-old director said that his next project will be a documentary about the founder of transcendental meditation, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. The Maharishi spent more than 50 years teaching and advocating the meditation technique to people worldwide, even attracting the attention of The Beatles in the late '60s. He lived into his 90s and died of natural causes in February 2008.
While it sounds like a fascinating project, it certainly doesn't sound like the "typical" Lynch fare, and the man himself stated as such in the interview. »

Why should Larry King have walked out on Carrie Prejean? Did Gossip Girl's threesome radiate an afterglow? And what did Craig Ferguson do that Craig Ferguson had never done before? The answers—and more questions—in the latest TV ratings quiz: 1. Whom did viewers find more "inappropriate," Carrie Prejean or Larry King? Judging by the numbers, Prejean. Wednesday's Larry King Live, featuring Prejean (and to be fair, other guests, as well), was the CNN show's second-least-watched episode of the week, averaging only 633,000, or a fraction of what clips of the Prejean-King dustup scored on YouTube. 2. Were Gossip Girl's bedroom antics good for the CW? In the aftermath of the »

Q: I'm curious about Project Runway's Christopher Straub. The ring he wears suggests he has a husband / partner / significant other. What details might you know on this? Every time Heidi had him in tears, I found myself strongly torn between wanting to give him a hug and going all Cher on him. – LgH, Houston, TX, Usw, Earth
A: “I am married!” Straub tells the Flying Monkey. “Well, not legally, but Ronnie and I had a commitment ceremony two-and-a-half years ago. We've been together for over five years. He's a little scientist, and we really don't understand what each other does for a living.”
I asked what the two of them do for fun. “We like to travel, watch TV – I like reality shows and he »

The executive director of Miss California USA released a statement to Et saying that after Carrie Prejean's bizarre interview with Larry King on Wednesday night, he believes "the public is finally getting a glimpse of the real [former Miss California] who lives in her own delusional world." The statement continues: "The childish behavior, her negative attitude, the sarcasm and condescending tone, the disrespect and continual lying she is demonstrating now is only a fraction of what we endured during her reign and after. Anyone who buys her book is supporting a woman who is actually the opposite of everything she claims to be. I sincerely hope she is able to get the psychological help I believe she has shown to clearly need." "Larry King Live" had Prejean on the show via satellite to discuss her new book, but the former beauty queen found herself in a heated moment where she called King "inappropriate »

Carrie Prejean is just carrying out God's plan, she tells Christianity Today in an interview that fails to address her solo sex tape--the topic that nearly caused her to walk off 'Larry King Live' Wednesday night. She also answers a question about her topless photos by discussing a need for Christians to unite against the Enemy and says she can't be homophobic because she lives in California and has gay hairdressers. Then she breaks down her conversion time line in a way that refutes her ex-boyfriend's claim that she sent him the masturbation tape when she was 20, not 17 as she has stated. Here are some highlights: On when she traded her depraved teenage behavior for Christianity: I went to Santa Barbara and I found out that it was a big party school, and I just didn't seem to »

Carrie Prejean, the former Miss California USA, threatened to walk off the Larry King Live set when King turned the focus of their interview toward the settlement of her lawsuit with the pageant.
During the interview, King asked Prejean why, if the issue of religious discrimination is so important to her, did she settle her suit with the pageant. (In the suit, Prejean asserted that she was dismissed from serving as Miss California USA because of her statements about gay marriage and other hot-button issues.)
Prejean did not answer King's question, instead repeating several times that the details of the settlement are confidential and calling King ...
