Days after Russell Brand poignantly replied, "I don't know who that is" at the mere mention of ex wife Katy Perry, the 39-year-old actor is spilling on his failed 14-month marriage. "I would like to get married [again]," the Get Him to the Greek star said during his appearance on The Wendy Williams Show on Wednesday, reaffirming his past sentiments. "I was married before and I really liked it." The English comedian and the 30-year-old pop star famously wed in a traditional Hindi ceremony in India surrounded by friends and family back in October 2010, and less than two years later, the two filed for divorce. Both Perry and Brand have since spoken out in public »
It seems like Nick Jonas went from Disney tween dream to our new favorite sex symbol overnight. But little did we know, the 22-year-old was getting down in the sheets long before he started dropping f-bombs in his songs.
On Wednesday’s episode of The Wendy Williams Show the host asked Jonas point-blank if he was still a virgin, to which he quickly replied, “No.” “I’m an adult in all ways and comfortable with who I am,” he added. Well, damn.

New York (AP) -- Though the Lifetime movie "Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B" drew criticism from fans upset with casting and the way it depicts Aaliyah's life, executive producer Wendy Williams says she wouldn't do anything differently if she had it to do again. Aaliyah fans took to Twitter, criticizing everything from the movie's casting to how it portrayed the singer, who died in a 2001 plane crash at age 22. Even music producer Timbaland, who worked closely with the late singer, took to Twitter and Instagram, posting messages like "Hope y'all not watching this!!!!!!!!." In an interview Monday, Williams said that `"as a black woman I was proud to show that Aaliyah came from a two-parent family, which many of us don't." She also says the film "painted R. Kelly, (who married Aaliyah when she was 15), in a more tasteful light than perhaps others would, and I think »

Kelly Ripa may be America's sweetheart on her morning show, but she has no qualms about being the least popular person at home when it comes to her teenage daughter. "She recently lost her computer and phone privileges, so it's like taking away oxygen," the Live! With Kelly and Michael host said on The Wendy Williams Show this week, expanding on a story about 13-year-old Lola that Ripa's hubby, Mark Consuelos, touched upon but didn't delve into when he sat down with Williams beforehand.

Ladies and gentlemen, Moviefone has a new voice... and face.
After launching an online search for the next Mr. or Ms. Moviefone back in September, followed by an open casting call in October and weeks of deliberation, Moviefone has finally found the next face of its iconic brand.
Thursday morning, in an exclusive reveal on NBC's "Today" show, Kevin Thompson, a former warm-up man for "The Wendy Williams Show" and current host of Bet's "Claim to Fame" game show, was named the new Mr. Moviefone. And the Brooklyn, NY native couldn't be happier about the new role.
"To be 'The Voice' and 'The Face' of the Moviefone brand brings me immeasurable joy," Thompson says. "Truth be told, I'm just a kid from Brooklyn, trying to make his mother proud. For years, she's told me to shut up; now, I think she's proud I never did."
It truly is a good thing that he never did. »

Ripa continued, "He'll say, 'Do you mind if I watch the Giants game?' and I go, 'No, of course not.' He puts it on and »

Wendy Williams has come under fire by GLAAD for remarks she made Wednesday on her talk show about Bruce Jenner's pink nail polish and gender identity. “To suggest that a person's nail polish color or hairstyle would inflict harm on their children is just ludicrous,” GLAAD president and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis told TheWrap. “What does inflict harm, however, is gross and invasive speculation about a person's gender identity.” See photos: National Coming Out Day: 26 Out and Proud Stars During her Hot Topics segment on “The Wendy Williams Show,” the host referenced a picture of Jenner that TMZ had acquired, »
