Russell Brand filed for divorce from Katy Perry on Friday on Dec. 30, just weeks after telling Ellen DeGeneres that he and his popstar wife were in it "until death do us part" on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on Dec. 2.
Brand called the Internet "a wicked little liar," adding that “being famous is like a little bit of you is taken away, and goes off, and lives on its own and does what it wants."
But just 28 days later, Brand told AP, "Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I'll always adore her and I know we'll remain friends," and offered no other details.
Brand and Perry were married in October 2010 at a resort inside a tiger reserve in India. Over the course of their relationship, the couple has made numerous TV appearances, declaring their love for audiences across the world to see. From Brand talking about his proposal with »

Comedian Bill Maher sparked a Twitter war this week with a post he wrote skewering quarterback Tim Tebow and his fervent religious beliefs following the Denver Bronco’s Christmas Eve loss to the Buffalo Bills. “Wow, Jesus just f—d #TimTebow bad! And on Xmas Eve! Somewhere in hell Satan is tebowing, saying to Hitler “Hey, Buffalo’s killing them,” Maher tweeted.
Tebowing – getting down on one knee to pray in a crowd no matter what else is going on – has been an easy target for ridicule, sparking an Internet meme and becoming part of a Saturday Night Live sketch. »

As "A Christmas Story" plays on a 24-hour loop, we are instantly transported back to the world of that great holiday classic. But on our HD TVs and Blu-ray players, one thing is obvious: 1983 was a long time ago. So, you ask, where are the film's stars now?
It's no Red Ryder Bb gun, but here's a Christmas gift to you: some answers.
In the spirit of Christmas, Scott Schwartz, who played pole-licking Flick, and Zack Ward, who played the bully Scut Farkus, reunited to discuss the film on "The View" late last week. Turns out the pole wasn't actually frozen metal -- it was just a plastic pole with a vacuum inside. But Ward, who is now an actor and stuntman, still got his comeuppance -- he says that kids challenged him to fights for years to come.
Schwartz took advantage of his famous tongue, anyway, as he would »

Recently on The View, during a conversation on North Korea's transition of power, Whoopi Goldberg made comments stating that Communism makes sense "on paper" but doesn't work once humans put it in practice. Clearly this means that she is a Communist. At least, that seemed to be the message of a segment on The Five where they accused Goldberg of not being condemn-y enough or something. »

It was the fart heard 'round the world. Or, what everyone thought was Whoopi Goldberg passing wind on TV last Friday. On Monday's show, the cohost of The View began the hour by "clearing the air" about what was perceived by many as a stinky situation. "People have lost their minds about this," said the Oscar winner referring to the program's Dec. 16 episode where, during an interview with Homeland star Claire Danes, Goldberg audibly appeared to let one go and remarked at the time: "Oh, excuse me! I think I just blew a little frog out of there!" Well, don't believe everything you hear, apparently... "What actually happened is, there is in me a little kid »
The View's Sherri Shepherd has suggested that Saturday Night Live needs more African-American castmembers. Shepherd made the criticism during an interview with Saturday Night Live's Fred Armisen, where she complained about frequently being left of the comedy show's spoofs of The View. "Where's the people who can play me on the sketches?" she questioned Armisen, adding: "You gotta get some more black people on your show." Armisen appeared to agree with Shepherd's call for more African-American castmembers by saying: "We're working on it." (more) »

Last Friday, the entire blogosphere went crazy because it was possible that Whoopi Goldberg farted on live TV (what can I say, bloggers just want to go home for the holidays too). Today during the opening few minutes of The View, Goldberg discussed the incident during some of the most ridiculously funny television you're going to see all week. Seriously, I want every day to start with someone doing a Zapruder film analysis of a fart joke. »

Goldberg was sat on a circular couch with her co-presenters talking to Danes, who was promoting her TV show Homeland earlier this week (begs12Dec11).
But Danes' interview was interrupted when a loud noise seemed to erupt from Goldberg, while the Romeo + Juliet actress looked stunned.
A laughing Goldberg told the panel, "Excuse me, I think I just blew a little frog outta there!"
But the incident didn't embarrass the Oscar winner, who quickly moved on from the mishap to ask another question.
It's not the first time the Ghost actress has talked about her gas problems - in May she admitted to often passing wind while on TV during a health segment with American physician Dr. Oz. »
The 'Sister Act' star however quickly owned up to the incident, while looking around to a giggling audience.
"Oh excuse me, I just let a frog out there," Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
Danes made her feel better saying "It's Ok!"
A spokesperson from network ABC however suggested that it might have just been a joke.
"It was clearly a joke and all in good fun. Secretly we hoped it would get posted on YouToot," the representative said. (Ani) »

Whoopi Goldberg's probably wondering, "Why couldn't everyone have been talking at once when this happened?!" The Oscar-winning cohost of The View suffered an all-too-human embarrassment on the air this morning when she let down her guard for a split second—and let one rip. Hey, it happens! Not always when Claire Danes is talking, but... The Golden Globe nominee was discussing why she thinks her critically acclaimed Showtime series Homeland was so well-received, when, from the other side of Joy Behar came a little "poot"! "How polite!" Danes exclaimed, laughing. But we're going to have to hand it to Goldberg for not playing the it-was-the-chair »

This morning, as comedian Gabe Liedman put it, “Claire Danes witnessed her first human fart, live.” This video has already been everywhere, but in case you somehow missed its epicness, behold the most glorious morning television moment ever: Whoopi Goldberg farting loudly on The View: video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo player I think we can all agree that the best part about this clip, other than that it happened in front of Claire Daines, is that Whoopi makes no attempt to hide or cover this fart. She owns up to it, saying “Oh, excuse me, I think I just blew a little frog out of there!” A frog Whoopi? No. That wasn’t a little frog. Here are some things that may have come out of there though: A squeaky door hinge. A zipper opening up really fast. A kiss from Bill Cosby. A VHS tape mid-rewind. A naked fat »

Troubled funnyman Andy Dick has signed on for twice-weekly therapy sessions in a bid to get back on his feet following a series of potentially career-ending legal woes and personal problems.
In recent years, the beleaguered comedian has hit the headlines for a string of alcohol and drug-related issues and this year alone he was ejected from an adult entertainment awards ceremony in Las Vegas after allegedly pestering a porn star, and in May he was arrested by police in California amid allegations he was drunk and disorderly in public.
And now Dick, who's been to rehab at least 10 times, is finally turning his back on the past after realising he can no longer rely on his friends and family to pick him up and point him in the right direction.
During an appearance on U.S. chat show The View on Friday, the Zoolander star said, "It happened within the year. It was time for my yearly intervention. Every room I went into, I'm like, 'Oh, this is going to be it, there's going to be people sitting around, every doorway, every corner I turn,' (but) nobody was there. Nobody was there to bring me back and sit me down and say, 'Andy, I think it's time to slow down, again.'
"Who knows why I do what I do and I did what I did, but this is the first time that I said, 'I'm about to be 46 years old, Ok, I need to really stop and work a hardcore programme. I'm in therapy twice a week... I'm trying to grow up."
And while Dick admits he's now 100 per cent sober, he's getting drug-tested to prove to the media and his fans that he's clean: "It's not by law, (it's) for you. I know I'm not on drugs but no one (else does)... And now I have the paperwork to prove it." »
The toot happened while the ladies were interviewing Claire Danes about her Golden Globe-nominated show "Homeland." At one point Goldberg started gyrating uncomfortably. Moments later...it happened.
Goldberg quickly remarks, "Excuse me, I think I just blew a little frog out of there."
ABC tells the Huffington Post that Goldberg wasn't the one who dealt it, saying, "It was a joke. Every time there is a fun noise she pretends it was her."
This isn't the first time Goldberg has "stepped on a duck" during a broadcast of the talk show. In May 2011, she let one fly during an interview with Dr. Oz.
Maybe it's time Whoopi lay off the Greek food. »
I have so much respect for Whoopi after she fully acknowledged her flatulent faux pas. Bravo, Ms. Goldberg! Whoopi Goldberg has always been my favorite feathered friend in the hen house that is ABC's The View -- and now I know why! On the Dec. 16 episode, during a rare intellectual discussion with Claire Danes about homeland security issues, Whoopi lifted a cheek and cut a big ol' fart. Sorry for being so blunt, but to sugarcoat Whoopi's act would be to undermine its hilarity -- and my newfound respect for the daytime goddess. "I think I just blew out a little frog outta there!" Whoopi proclaimed, taking pride in her mighty act. If academy members aren't calling an emergency meeting right now to discuss giving this woman a daytime Emmy, they all need to re-evaluate their lives. Watch this most epic passing of gas below (the magic happens 11 seconds »
