Some behind-the-scenes snapshots from this morning's Good Morning America announcement of this season's cast of Dancing With The Stars.
I want Sharon Osbourne to be my best friend. This won't happen, of course, but a girl can dream. I don't know her personally, but I've had two interactions with 'The Talk' host. Once, circa 2002, when we both attended a White House Correspondents' Dinner after-party in Washington, D.C. where she was a guest, and I was on duty -- mingling with other high-profile celebrities, Red Carpet style, to get quick quotes for Us Weekly.
Brooke Burke-Charvet's enthusiasm was infectious. Now we all are getting a front row seat to how that same enthusiastic person handles getting fired from a job. As it turns out, there's a lot we all can learn from watching.
Adam Carolla is a controversial guy. But I'd guess those people who think they know him haven't spent much time listening to The Aceman, whose fans know him as someone who has helped countless teenagers and adults through their troubles.
The Sundance Film Festival had another successful year, adding a well-deserved notch to the independent film bedpost, and Park City had no shortage of...
Bill Engvall braved the balmy warm weather out west while agreeing to sit down and take HuffPost's #nofilter challenge. While we had his attention (prior to the quiz), we asked about his courageous stint on Season 17 of "Dancing With The Stars" -- with dancing pro Emma Slater (he finished fourth) -- and his time on set with that little superstar, JLaw.
It is holiday time again along with the long lines waiting to buy those special gifts. How will your feet and legs survive the pounding of pavements and standing for hours on hard concrete floors at the malls and running from department store to department store?
Bill Nye is the consummate scientist -- with a flair for humor. 'Bill Nye the Science Guy' was born after he won a Steve Martin look-a-like contest circa 1978, eventually showcasing his scientific knowledge on PBS from 1993 to 1998. In case you're not sure where else you've seen him, he also hosted 'The 100 Greatest Discoveries,' Science Channel; 'The Eyes of Nye,' PBS; and 'Stuff Happens,' Planet Green.
Simply put: blackface is unacceptable. Just don't do it. For those who say it's not about race, a thought exercise: what if a black man had dressed in "whiteface" as a white murder victim of a black defendant? Yes, you can imagine the FOX-fueled false equivalence hysteria from here.
I'm at war with loneliness, and loneliness is winning. I'm also in the super swanky SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills -- with beautiful people all around -- to see Oscar winners Diablo Cody and Octavia Spencer, and singer/dancer-with-the-stars turned movie star Julianne Hough.
Does it seem odd to praise Valerie Harper for authentic humanity as art? I don't think so, and it may not be obvious at first glance. After all, aren't all people on TV human? Yes and no.
They came for the tango and stayed for the salsa. The blockbuster hit dance show Forever Tango returned to Broadway for the second time since its debut in 1997.
Actor Gilles Marini is one of the rare people in the industry who is a humble, kind and a devoted family man; and also a hard working, talented actor, who oozes passion in absolutely everything he does. He shared some of his favorite travel hits and misses with me.
With rumors swirling that Paula Deen may be joining the cast of Dancing with the Stars next season, let's consider what could be next for the disgraced deep-frying diva. A fitness DVD? A gig hosting the BET Awards? Or better yet: perhaps a career in pop music?
I see a lot of people doing what seems to be no-brainer tasks... and they make lots of money. It drives me crazy that people become rich doing things that are so simple -- that I could do. Here are 10 things on my list. (What's on your list?)
Pitbull credits him mom with a lot, telling us, "My mother always told me the pen is mightier than the sword."
