Kate Walsh's Husband Files of Divorce


'Private Practice' Star Kate Walsh's Husband Files for Divorce
The couple has only been married for 15 months

Kate Walsh doesn't only have marital problems on TV.

The "Private Practice" star's husband, Alex Young, has filed for divorce, reports "Entertainment Tonight."

According to court papers, the couple has been separated since Nov. 22, just before Thanksgiving. Young cites irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split.

Walsh, 41, and 37-year-old Young, a production co-president at 20th Century Fox, in February 2007, and he proposed three months later. They had gone public with their romance in April at a Los Angeles fundraiser for the now president-elect Barack Obama.

The couple tied the knot in September 2007 in Ojai, Calif. The ceremony was attended by friends, family, actress Kate Beckinsale and her director husband Len Wiseman, as well as "Grey's Anatomy" costars Katherine Heigl, Chandra Wilson, Sara Ramirez and Justin Chambers.

Walsh first played Dr. Addison Montgomery on "Grey's Anatomy" before spinning off to her own series, "Private Practice," both on ABC.

WWE Announcement: SmackDown Main Event at Armageddon


It's official: WWE Champion Edge defends the gold in a Triple Threat at Armageddon
Written: November 29, 2008

After meeting with the WWE Board of Directors following SmackDown, General Manager Vickie Guerrero has announced that at Armageddon, her husband Edge will defend the WWE Championship in a Triple Threat Match against Jeff Hardy and Triple H. (Match Preview)

As new WWE Champion Edge reemerged on SmackDown with his gold raised high, the WWE Universe witnessed three of SmackDown’s top Superstars, Jeff Hardy,
Vladimir Kozlov and former WWE Champion, Triple H battle for clock supremacy to see who would face the Ultimate Opportunist at Armageddon, only to be left in a shroud of uncertainty until this morning's announcement.

Jeff Hardy set the standard early, winning the first Beat the Clock Challenge Match with a high-octane win over
The Brian Kendrick in 12:13. After taking Ezekiel Jackson out with a lightning kick through the ropes, Hardy delivered a Swanton Bomb on Kendrick to secure the victory, making him the Superstar to beat.

Matt Hardy put everything on the line for the sake of his brother, battling tenaciously with the mighty Moscow Mauler, Vladimir Kozlov, while keeping one eye on the clock. The Extreme champion’s endurance paid off, as time expired without a winner, thereby sealing the door shut on Kozlov’s opportunity to be part of the Armageddon main event.

After a grueling match, Triple H hit the Gold Standard with a Pedigree. However, WWE Official Mike Chioda had been knocked out, and struggled through glazed eyes to finally deliver the three-count. However, after raising The Game’s hand in triumph, indicating that he had beaten the clock, a second WWE Official, Charles Robinson ran down to dispute the outcome. The two officials came to the consensus that Triple H and Jeff Hardy had earned their win in exactly the same amount of time, 12:13, leaving the WWE Universe in a state of confusion and suspense as to who would be facing Edge at Armageddon until this morning.

As the headlining Survivor Series matches were being finalized, Jeff Hardy continued his extreme tirade throughout SmackDown, causing major disruption to several of the Superstars. And even Undertaker - emerging from a casket in the middle of the ring - was not as shocking as Jeff Hardy’s frightening new look to match his reckless insanity. (WATCH PHOTOS)

Contract Signing for

SmackDown General Manager Vickie Guerrero had scheduled a simple contract signing for the WWE Championship Match at Survivor Series between WWE Champion Triple H and Vladimir Kozlov. But things quickly turned extreme when Jeff Hardy suddenly jumped from the top rope and put the Moscow Mauler through the table. Hardy then proceeded to rip up the championship contract and throw it in The Game’s face.

As Undertaker and Hardy seemed to be reaching the climax of an absolutely brutal Extreme Rules Match,
Big Show charged to the ring. The World’s Largest Athlete chokeslamed The Deadman and caught the advancing Hardy in midair, before Undertaker nailed him with the steel chair. However, with The Phenom’s attention on Big Show, Hardy was able to clobber him with the same chair, paving the way for him to hurl himself off the turnbuckle, over the top of the ladder and down upon The Deadman – executing a breathtaking leg drop that sealed his amazing victory. Following the match, SmackDown General Manager Vickie Guerrero told Hardy that if he beats Triple H next week, she will make the WWE Championship Match at Survivor Series a Triple Threat Match.

FOX Pushes "The Cleveland Show" to Fall 2009

FOX Pushes 'The Cleveland Show' to Fall 2009
Arianna Huffington set for an ursine recurring role

Conspicuously left off of FOX's recently announced midseason schedule, "The Cleveland Show" has been pushed to next fall.

But don't take that move as a bad sign for the "Family Guy" spin-off. In addition to admitting to the premiere delay, FOX also announced that it has ordered a full season of the animated comedy.

That means that FOX has now ordered 22 episodes of "The Cleveland Show," which will star Sanaa Lathan, Nia Long, Kevin Michael Richardson, Mike Henry and Seth MacFarlane.

"FOX picking up nine more episodes of our show is proof that an African-American can make it in this country," says, um, "Cleveland Brown" in FOX's press release. "This is a milestone for the United States of America."

FOX initially set "The Cleveland Show" for a midseason launch. It follows Peter Griffin's neighbor (Henry) as he moves to Virginia to be with his high-school sweetheart (Lathan) and her kids. His son Cleveland Jr. will also be part of the show.

In addition to announcing the full season order and the fall start, FOX also made a rather peculiar addendum: Arianna Huffington will take a recurring role on the series.

The presence of the blogger, radio host and politically shifting pundit would be odd enough. What's more, though, Huffington's character will be part of the family of talking bears who live in Cleveland's new Virginia neighborhood. The ursine spouse of Huffington's character will be voiced by MacFarlane.

With the "Cleveland Show" reassignment, the jury is still out on FOX's other unscheduled midseason comedy, the Mitch Hurwitz-produced "Sit Down, Shut Up."

WWE Friday Night SmackDown! - Official Results (November 7, 2008)

Going to the extreme

By: Michael Burdick
November 7, 2008

ORLANDO, Fla. – After coming so close to winning the WWE Championship – time after time – and being told by SmackDown General Manager Vickie Guerrero that he doesn’t have what it takes to become WWE Champion, a recluse Jeff Hardy made it clear to the WWE Universe that he would use any means necessary to get another chance.

The Miz & John Morrison def. WWE Champion Triple H & Jeff Hardy (DQ) (PHOTOS)

Jeff Hardy showed up to his tag team match determined to show Guerrero that he could overcome “The Dirt Sheet” stars on his own. Once Triple H tagged him in to the match, he refused to tag out again. When he was unable to score a pinfall and The Game came to his aid, Hardy snapped, causing the disqualification as he swung and threw a steel chair wildly at both Miz and Morrison.

Determined to demonstrate the extreme nature of his cause, Jeff Hardy went on to sabotage the main event match between the undefeated Vladimir Kozlov and Undertaker. Hardy attacked the Moscow Mauler with a chair, simultaneously handing Kozlov a win by disqualification and an apparent chance at WWE Champion Triple H at Survivor Series. After the bell, the out of control Hardy danced with death, smashing The Phenom over the head as well. He then returned to Guerrero and secured himself an Extreme Rules Match next week against the legendary Deadman.

United States Champion Shelton Benjamin def. R-TruthUnited States Championship (PHOTOS)

The Gold Standard successfully survived an explosive onslaught by R-Truth, hitting his devastating Pay Dirt to reign supreme and retain his United States Championship.

After Brie Bella beat Victoria with a surprise inside cradle, she once again sought refuge under the ring. When both Victoria and Natalya began dragging her out from completely different places, it was revealed that the mysterious Diva actually has a twin! The dynamic duo proceeded to give their opposition a simultaneous beat down. has learned that Brie’s twin is named Nikki and has secured exclusive post match photos. Check back tomorrow for an exclusive photo shoot with the Bella sisters.

The Great Khali and Ranjin Singh interrupted the VIP Lounge in order to treat the WWE Universe to another sizzling Kiss Cam. (WATCH PHOTOS) Although MVP refused their invitation to stick around and stormed out – paving the way for the Punjabi Playboy to kiss two of Orlando’s sunniest sweethearts – the Ballin’ Superstar returned to get a few shots in. A vengeful Khali earned a victory over MVP with his mighty two-handed chokeslam, leaving his adversary one win short in his continued quest to earn his promised intensive bonus. With another mark in the loss column, will MVP earn his bonus by the Survivor Series deadline? Or will he have to pay back the multi-million dollar signing bonus from his original contract?

Ezekiel Jackson def. Jimmy Wang Yang (WATCH PHOTOS)

In retribution for Jimmy Wang Yang’s win by disqualification over The Brian Kendrick last week, Ezekiel Jackson manhandled the Asian redneck, ruthlessly hurling him into to the canvas for the pin. After the bell, Jackson’s associate once again treated Yang to The Kendrick.

LOST Returns to ABC this January!


'Lost' Returns in January
Season five gets a two-hour premiere on Jan. 21

Set your "Lost" countdown clocks to 75 days: ABC has set the show's season premiere date.

The show will open its fifth season with a two-hour premiere starting at 9 p.m. ET Wednesday, Jan. 21. It marks a return to Wednesdays for the show, which aired after "Grey's Anatomy" on Thursday nights at the end of last season.

Other than the date and the episode titles -- "Because You Left" and "The Lie" -- ABC hasn't released any information about the new season. It's expected to run for 17 episodes -- with the 17th partially making up for last year's strike-shortened 14-episode season -- which would put the season finale in late April or early May.

It remains to be seen what the addition of "Lost" to Wednesday nights will mean for ABC's current lineup on the night. " Private Practice," which ABC picked up for the full season a couple weeks ago, is likely staying put, but it's potentially bad news for either "Pushing Daisies" or " Dirty Sexy Money," both of which have been struggling in their second seasons.

The network has yet to announce a full midseason schedule. ABC also has three comedies, including NBC pickup " Scrubs," and three new dramas on tap for 2009.

"Lost" ended its fourth season by showing how the Oceanic Six got off the island and formed their cover story, with flash-forwards showing all six people decidedly unhappy with their post-rescue lives and realizing they have to go back. Which could be a problem, as the finale also showed Ben (Michael Emerson) moving the island to points unknown. And then there's the matter of Locke (Terry O'Quinn) being revealed as the man in the coffin.

Answers to some of the questions posed by those developments will start coming in 75 days.

Ex-24 Star Moving to Lost


Ex-'24' Star Is Getting 'Lost'
Reiko Aylesworth is in talks for a recurring role

Former "24" star Reiko Aylesworth may soon be involved in a different sort of international intrigue on "Lost."

Aylesworth is in negotiations to take a "major" recurring role on the upcoming season of the ABC series, according to The Hollywood Reporter. She would appear in at least four episodes of the show, which will make its return early next year.

The character Aylesworth would be playing is described as "a smart and successful professional woman with a love for the outdoors who is looking for the right man." This being "Lost," that could mean almost anything. Could she be:

- A heretofore unseen Other who's been working behind the scenes in searching for the "right man" -- say, John Locke (Terry O'Quinn)?

- An operative for either Ben (Michael Emerson) or Widmore (Alan Dale) who's helping track the movements of either side's adversaries?

- Someone who gets involved with one of the Oceanic Six? (Note to the character: If this is the case, you're looking in the wrong place for the right man.)

Aylesworth is best known for playing CTU agent Michelle Dessler on "24" for three-plus seasons. She had a recurring part on "ER" last season and has recently appeared in the movies "Aliens vs. Predator -- Requiem" and "Mr. Brooks."

Beginning in January 2009, the new schedule will have Adult Swim goodness starting at 10 p.m. every evening. Thanks to a multi-year licensing agreement with Twentieth Television, the Emmy-winning "King of the Hill" has the honor of beginning the Adult Swim programming each night.

"Adult Swim has been a consistent ratings winner," says Stuart Snyder, president and chief operating officer of Turner Broadcasting's Animation, Young Adults and Kids Media group. "By expanding the network with exciting new programming, which speaks directly to our audience, Adult Swim and can continue to grow and be the dominant brand with men 18-34."

Mike Lazzo, Adult Swim's senior VP of programming and production adds, "With 'King of the Hill' joining 'Family Guy' in our Adult Swim lineup we now have two of the greatest animated series ever made."

Adult Swim has topped the ratings with men 18-34 for 12 of the last 14 quarters.

"King of the Hill" is currently in its 12th season on FOX and has not been renewed for the following years. There's been much speculation as to its fate, including interest by ABC to pick up the animated series.

Even with
Big Show becoming more than a casual observer, the fate of Chavo Guerrero in a Casket Match against Undertaker seemed set in stone. After punishing the self-proclaimed "Mexican Warrior," The Phenom signaled to the referee that the end was near. But, as he was about to send Guerrero to his doom, Big Show slammed the casket door closed. Then, when The Deadman countered his opponent’s attempt to use a chair with a vicious chokeslam, Big Show attacked. However, the trick was on The World’s Largest Athlete as The Phenom pulled the top rope down, sending the charging Superstar tumbling over the ropes and onto the top of the looming box of death. Undertaker then hit Guerrero with the Tombstone and rolled him into the coffin for the win.

Spider-Man 4 Update

Pulitzer pen crafts "Spidey 4"
Friday October 31 1:51 AM ET

Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire got out of a rabbit hole, only to be ensnared by a spider's web.

Lindsay-Abaire, who won a Pulitzer in 2007 for his drama "Rabbit Hole," is in final negotiations to write "Spider-Man 4" for Columbia.

Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire are back as director and star, respectively. Kirsten Dunst also is expected to return for the latest movie featuring the Marvel Comics character.

Plot details are under lock and key. Producer Laura Ziskin had said she would like to aim for a May 2011 release for "Spider-Man 4," nine years after the original movie's debut.

Columbia always has gone off the beaten path during the development process when hiring writers for the "Spider-Man" movies. Alvin Sargent, a veteran scribe best known for 1973's "Paper Moon" and 1980's "Ordinary People," served as a writer on the second and third films. Michael Chabon, another Pulitzer winner, also worked on "Spider-Man 2."

James Vanderbilt previously wrote a draft of "Spider-Man 4."

Lindsay-Abaire's "Rabbit Hole," which starred Cynthia Nixon and Tyne Daly, hit the Broadway stage in 2006 and won four Tonys, including best play. The writer also is known for the play "Fuddy Meers."

Lindsay-Abaire has said in interviews that his plays tend to be "peopled with outsiders in search of clarity," which would put his work on sympathetic terms with Peter Parker, who in his classic incarnation is the perpetual outsider.

The choice of scribe also signals that that filmmakers are intent to focus on character, something that critics said got lost in the third installment.

Lindsay-Abaire, now writing the book and lyrics for the Broadway musical adaptation of "Shrek," has dipped his toe in Tinseltown before, with his adaptation of "Inkheart" due in January. He is also adapting "Rabbit" for 20th Century Fox and Nicole Kidman.

Science Does Not Contradict With Faith.

Pope sees physicist Hawking at evolution gathering
Fri Oct 31, 1:52 pm ET

VATICAN CITY (Reuters) – Pope Benedict told a gathering of scientists including the British cosmologist Stephen Hawking on Friday that there was no contradiction between believing in God and empirical science.

Benedict, who briefly met the wheelchair-bound physicist at an event hosted by the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, described science as the pursuit of knowledge about God's creation.

"There is no opposition between faith's understanding of creation and the evidence of the empirical sciences," the pontiff said.

"Galileo saw nature as a book whose author is God."

The Catholic Church found the 17th-century astronomer Galileo guilty of heresy for insisting the earth revolved around the sun. It did not rehabilitate him until 1992.

Hawking is a guest at the week-long event, which will explore the theme: "Scientific Insights into the Evolution of the Universe and of Life."

In an interview with Reuters last year, Hawking said he was "not religious in the normal sense."

"I believe the universe is governed by the laws of science," he said. "The laws may have been decreed by God, but God does not intervene to break the laws."

The Catholic Church teaches "theistic evolution," which accepts evolution as scientific theory. Proponents see no reason why God could not have used an evolutionary process in forming the human species.

The Pontiff admired the technology that allows Hawking to speak through a voice synthesizer. Hawking is crippled by a muscle disease and has lost the use of his natural voice.

Hawking, author of the best-selling "A Brief History of Time," will speak about the origin of the universe at the closed-door event.

Jennifer Hudson's Mother, and Brother Found Dead.


Jennifer Hudson's Mother, Brother Found Shot Dead
Suspect in custody, police still looking for Oscar winner's 7-year-old nephew

LOS ANGELES -- "American Idol" finalist and Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Hudson's mother and brother were found dead in her mother's Chicago home on Friday afternoon, according to news sources.

Darnell Hudson Donerson, 57, and her 29-year-old son Jason had been shot to death. Police say there were no signs of forced entry and that the murders appear to have been the result of a domestic dispute. Neighbors say that they heard shots fired on Friday morning, but the bodies weren't found by a family member until that afternoon.

Police are currently looking for Hudson's 7-year-old nephew, Julian King, who police believe were in the house at the time of the shootings. The boy's mother, Jennifer's sister Julia, reported him missing on Friday afternoon.

Late Friday word came that the police have a suspect in custody although Julian has yet to be found. The suspect's identity hasn't been confirmed by police, but other reports have the suspect as William Balfour, the husband of Julia, who is currently on parole after serving seven years for attempted murder. Within the past year he has listed Donerson's address as his place of residence.

Hudson -- who can currently be seen in "The Secret Life of Bees" -- won the Oscar for best supporting actress in 2007 for her role in "Dreamgirls." She became engaged last month on her 27th birthday to David Otunga, better known as "Punk" from the second season of the reality dating show "I Love New York."
