Portia de Rossi Wants Ellen DeGeneres to Quit Daytime TV
Ellen DeGeneres is considering quitting her NBC daytime talker, “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” and branching out because her wife, Portia de Rossi, thinks the comedian has “other things she could tackle.”

“I just think she’s such a brilliant actress and standup that it doesn’t have to be this talk show for her creativity,” de Rossi said in a DeGeneres-centric interview with the New York Times published Wednesday, ahead of the release of her wife’s first standup special in 15 years.

De Rossi says the Netflix comedy event, titled “Relatable” — marketed as a tongue-in-cheek takedown of the comedian’s approachable image — shows DeGeneres is “just a bit more complicated than she appears on the show,” adding, “There’s more range of emotion.”

Harry Shum Jr. Named Ambassador for the 2019 SAG Awards
Make way for the 2019 SAG Awards' new ambassador! Harry Shum Jr. has claimed the coveted spot this year—and deservedly so, as he's appeared on both the big and small screens.

Shum, of course, also starred as Charlie Wu in Warner Bros.' Crazy Rich Asians. And let's not forget he is a former SAG Award winner (Outstanding Ensemble in a Comedy Series) for his work on Glee. The actor, who last month announced that he and wife Shelby Robara are having a baby girl, can add this new title to...

If You See Us Crying Over Alessia Cara's Destiny's Child Medley, It's Just Emotions Taking Us Over
Are you ready to clear your schedule for the rest of the day? Alessia Cara performed a Destiny's Child medley that you'll be listening to on repeat, with no time for interruptions. The 22-year-old stopped by SiriusXM and performed five classic hits from the iconic girl group, whose final lineup gave us the talents of Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams (try to say their names without tearfully remembering that they've broken up).

The Canadian-born singer lent her signature raspiness to "Say My Name," "Bills Bills Bills," "Survivor," "Bootylicious," and "Emotion," giving each song a slow, soulful rendition that Destiny's Child would surely appreciate. And those runs, honey! Obviously you can never beat a classic, but Cara's medley is definitely worth a second - or seventh - listen. Watch the video above!

The Ellen Show Might Be Nearing Its Finale, Because Apparently It Can't Go on Forever?
Even though it's hard to imagine, apparently The Ellen DeGeneres Show cannot go on forever. In fact, the feel-good talk show's fate was recently hanging in the balance before Ellen DeGeneres extended her contract until 2020 after an apparent internal debate. DeGeneres spoke about the pressure of her eponymous show - now in its 16th season - as well as her forthcoming stand-up special Relatable in a refreshingly candid interview with The New York Times.

"I wanted to show all of me."

"The talk show is me, but I'm also playing a character of a talk-show host," DeGeneres said, explaining why she's returning to stand-up after a 15-year hiatus. "I wanted to show all of me." Her brother, Vance DeGeneres, agreed that working on new material offered her a break from the routine, saying, "After doing the show for 16 years, it's second nature. She wanted to break out of, not a rut,

Whoopi Goldberg is speaking out against the idea that the Academy Awards forgo a host at the 2019 ceremony — and is offering to do the job herself.

Sources told Variety that skipping a host is one of the plans that the Academy is considering after Kevin Hart dropped out of hosting the Oscars. Hart initially did not apologize for his resurfaced homophobic tweets but did so as he stepped down.

Jason Momoa Quit His Diet After Aquaman: "Every Day Is a Cheat Day!"

Jason Momoa Quit His Diet After Aquaman:
Jason Momoa went above and beyond to get into character as Aquaman. With his 50-inch chest and 19-inch biceps, he brought the King of Atlantis to life on the big screen. But by the time he was done filming the Warner Bros.' Aquaman (in theaters Dec. 21), the 6-foot-4 actor was ready to let himself go. "I had to not really eat as much to stay lean. I'm Hawaiian—if we eat, we just get big. So, genetically, it's hard for me to get trim," he tells E! News. "You deplete yourself of carbs, so I had a harder time getting lean. I'd rather just get big." "I'm not a fan of doing abs," Momoa adds. "It's tough...You can't drink beer!" So, once production...

True Detective Season 3: Mahershala Ali Is on the Case in the Ominous Official Trailer

True Detective Season 3: Mahershala Ali Is on the Case in the Ominous Official Trailer
Yes, True Detective is finally returning for season three, and yes, Mahershala Ali looks damn good in the trailer. The third installment of HBO's gritty detective series, an anthology from Nic Pizzolatto, stars the Moonlight Oscar winner as Wayne Hays, a state police detective from Northwest Arkansas. He sets out to solve the mystery of two missing children in 1980, eventually crossing paths with Amelia Reardon (Selma's Carmen Ejogo), an Arkansas schoolteacher with a connection to the kids. From the looks of the trailer, things go horribly awry and we can't wait to figure out why!

The new season will premiere on Sunday, Jan. 13, 2019. After a dry, painfully slow second season, the drama unsurprisingly lost a good number fans who couldn't get enough of Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson in season one. Fortunately, it seems the twisted new story - which will unfold over the course of three decades -
