brett butlerIs Brett Butler returning to television ... as a psychic?

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the 'Grace Under Fire' star opened up about her new reality show that's currently in development. She also revealed the intense pressure of having a hit sitcom.

"It was real unnerving and weird and it's very strange ... It's other worldly," Butler told Nancy O'Dell, referring to the bad days she'd rather forget. "I don't romance the past ... It prevents me from looking ahead at new things."

Taylor Armstrong'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' star Taylor Armstrong is set to reveal details about the domestic abuse she suffered while married to her recently deceased husband.

Taylor has filmed her first TV interview since her estranged husband's suicide with Nancy O'Dell for 'Entertainment Tonight,' airing Sept. 20.

On the Sept. 13 show, 'Entertainment Tonight' showed images of a badly bruised Taylor, reportedly taken in July.

Taylor filed for divorce from Russell, her estranged husband, on July 15. In August, Russell hanged himself.

A source told 'Entertainment Tonight' that Taylor underwent Lasik eye surgery on July 5, then just days later Russell hit her so hard that her corneal flap was dislocated. Taylor reportedly didn't make a public appearance until she did press for 'Real Housewives' in August.

"I felt like I was dying inside," Taylor told People after filing for divorce. "Now, there's some sense of peace."

Mary Hart Talks Oprah, Michael Jackson & Saying Goodbye to 'Entertainment Tonight'

by Maggie Furlong, posted May 20th 2011 9:00AM
Mary Hart, 'Entertainment Tonight'After almost 30 years hosting 'Entertainment Tonight,' Mary Hart is signing off for the last time on tonight's show.

With the show from the very beginning, Hart has had a million adventures and interviews that you could pick her brain about all day long, but one vivid memory from the show's first months is truly hard to believe. "I remember very well traveling from city to city around the country, convincing station managers to keep the show on the air, that we were going to be a ratings winner for them," Hart said. "I mean, it took personal convincing."

Can you imagine now, in this age of entertainment news at every turn, not having a staple show dedicated to just that? Not to mention the 20 others out there ...

I talked to Hart about those early years, her most cherished interviews, her least favorite part of the job and her quasi-rivalry with another TV personality signing off soon, Oprah Winfrey. "Well, I do have her beat by a few years!," Hart said with a laugh.

Margaret Cho Says Sarah Palin 'Forced' Bristol on 'Dancing With the Stars,' Royal Wedding Could be 3D and More

Margaret ChoApparently, Bristol Palin might not have been all that interested in competing on 'Dancing With the Stars' this season -- but her mother made her do it.

E! Online is reporting that comedian Margaret Cho, one of Bristol's 'DWTS' competitors, thinks Sarah Palin "forced" Bristol to take part in the reality show to make amends for her pregnancy during the 2008 election.

"Sarah supposedly blames Bristol harshly and openly (in the circles that I heard it from) for not winning the election, and so she told Bristol she 'owed' it to her to do 'DWTS' so that 'America would fall in love with her again' and make it possible for Sarah Palin to run in 2012 with America behind her all the way," Cho wrote on her blog.

by Catherine Lawson, posted Nov 9th 2010 7:55AM

Nancy O'Dell, October 2010It's been a busy week for Nancy O'Dell. Yesterday we heard that she'll be hosting Fox's New Year's Eve programming, and today it's been reported that she'll be taking over from Mary Hart on 'Entertainment Tonight' when Hart steps down next year.

O'Dell told People magazine: "I remember watching 'Entertainment Tonight' when it first premiered and dreaming about working for the show some day. ... I am honored to be the one chosen to fill a TV legend's seat and I hope I can do her proud!"

Over the summer, veteran reporter Hart announced her plans to leave 'Entertainment Tonight' in 2011 after nearly 30 years on the show. Yesterday, she said that "Leaving this job was not an easy decision, but knowing I will pass the baton to Nancy O'Dell makes that decision much easier. ... Nancy is a talented and respected entertainment correspondent. We have spent many years working on opposite sides of the celebrity battlefield and I know the show will flourish with Nancy as co-anchor."

Betty White on Sandra Bullock: 'Let Her Work It Out' (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Mar 23rd 2010 9:37PM
Entertainment Tonight, Betty White, Sandra BullockBetty White has lived a lot of years and weathered a few storms along the way. So we should probably listen to her wise words about pal Sandra Bullock's marital woes.

"We're all deeply, deeply saddened," White said on 'Entertainment Tonight' (weekdays, syndicated). "At such a high point in her life, it's tough ... I love her with all my heart. That's one of the greatest human beings on the planet ... but the less other people have to say about it and let her work it out ... the better."

Will the tabloids leave it alone? No, but the best we can hope is to give Bullock and husband Jesse James space to deal with things on their own.

As for her thoughts, Bullock says, "There's so many different ways to cheat ... I think it's sometimes far worse to emotionally cheat." Look for that interview on 'Entertainment Tonight' tomorrow.

Marie Osmond's son commits suicideYou've probably heard that Marie Osmond's son committed suicide on Friday evening by leaping off the balcony of his Los Angeles apartment.

'Entertainment Tonight' (weekdays, 7:30PM ET on CBS) reported on the tragedy, noting that 18-year-old Michael Blosil texted a friend and said he left a note for her on his bed.

It's just awful all the way around, but especially for this friend, who will live with the fact that she didn't get there in time to try and save him. Not that she could have, but it's going to haunt her for the rest of her life.

Entertainment Tonight, Barbra Streisand, We Are the WorldDozens of stars gathered to out-sing and out-diva each other for 'We Are the World - 25 for Haiti,' a remake of the song that brought in $63 million for the Ethiopian famine 25 years ago. New footage of the recording was shown on 'Entertainment Tonight' (weekdays, 7PM ET on CBS).

Sure, it's a great cause, and we're sure director Paul Haggis will do it justice. Still, we have a feeling that Barbra Streisand, Celine Dion and all the rest will show up on an episode of 'The Simpsons' (Sun., 8PM ET on FOX) real soon.

PEOPLE reports that the former 'Bachelor' contestant has been named a special correspondent for 'Entertainment Tonight.' As part of the job, Rycroft will cover a number of assignments for the entertainment program, including premieres, award shows, set visits and Hollywood parties.

Just a year ago, the former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader was one of 25 women vying for Jason Mesnick's heart on season 13 of 'The Bachelor.' Rycroft won it, of course -- but not for long. During the show's reunion special, Mesnick revealed that he had lingering feelings for runner-up Molly Malaney, then dumped Rycroft on national television (Mesnick and Malaney have since announced plans to wed as part of an ABC special, set to air Mar. 8.)
