Joan Rivers appeared on Access Hollywood Tuesday to explain why she walked out on CNN anchor Fredericka Whitfield mid-interview over the weekend. "Fifty years in the business, this is the first time I've ever walked off," she declared. "You've gotta understand -- when you interview someone, it's not an interrogation. And [Fredericka] was going at me, like, 'Why do you say this?' and 'Why do you say that?' It's like, you don't say to the Olsen twins, 'What's your favorite place to vomit?'" The 81-year-old comedian continued, "It was just [that] the questions were just coming out so negatively, and I found myself defending myself. And I thought, 'I'm a comedian!'" The interview in question made headlines Saturday after Whitfield asked Rivers why she wore fur on the cover of her new book and Rivers responded by telling her to shut up and storming off the set.
Pamela Anderson has filed for divorce from husband Rick Salomon after just six months of marriage. This is the second time that the couple has split. The former Baywatch star, 47, and Salomon, 46, tied the knot back in 2007 and split two months later on the basis of fraud. This time around, they've cited ""irreconcilable differences." Hey, the saying goes that third time's a charm...
On last night's episode of The Tonight Show, Halle Berry and Jimmy Fallon presented a cute skit called "This Is How We Roll," during which they held each others' ankles, formed a circle, then tumbled across the stage to show viewers their acrobatic skills. What man wouldn't have loved to trade places with Fallon at that moment...
In a new interview with RumorFix, Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham disses Jenelle Evans for having another baby. "I am beyond that," she declares. “In my life, women are not continually having babies and putting hardships and having the drama and putting the hardships around their children. I’m really not about living that lifestyle anymore. And I only want to make the best environment for my daughter." (Right... Because surely, your daughter loves having a porn star for a mother.) Abraham, who has been on birth control for five years, adds, "I would never go find a boyfriend right now get pregnant have a second child without a plan."
As if the addition of Gwen Stefani and Pharrell wasn’t epic enough, Stevie Nicks will be joining The Voice next season as an adviser to Adam Levine’s team. Billboard reports that Nicks is currently working with Levine and his 12 team members as they assign and rehearse songs for the seventh season of the show, being filmed now. NBC says that they will soon announce other advisers for the season, which premieres on the network on September 22.
The Dunphy home from ABC's hit Modern Family has sold for $2.15 million. But fans needn't worry about Phil and Claire being forced out of their house -- the space is actually only used for exterior shots and an arrangement to continue doing so will likely be worked out with the new owners. The L.A. pad boasts four bedrooms, four and a half baths, a kitchen with granite counter tops, and -- of course -- a white picket fence. Modern Family returns for its sixth season this fall.
Harry Potter is back, and he's going gray! In a new story posted yesterday on her website, author J.K. Rowling gave fans a glimpse of a grown-up boy wizard. The 1,500-word story describes Harry on the cusp of his 34th birthday, attending the final of the Quidditch World Cup with his old friends Ron and Hermione. Written in the style of a gossip column, the piece notes that Harry now sports "threads of silver" in his hair and that he and his friends are "no longer the fresh-faced teenagers they were in their heyday." A Rowling spokesperson says there are still "no plans" for a new Potter novel.
