Kris Humphries Sits Down for Awkward 'GMA' Interview (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Dec 9th 2011 2:20PM
There have been so many uncomfortable chapters in the televised romance, marriage and subsequent divorce between Kris Humphries and Kim Kardashian. But the NBA forward's interview with 'Good Morning America,' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) may be remembered as one of the most cringe-worthy. In a sit-down interview with Josh Elliot, Humphries seemed visibly uncomfortable answering questions about the experience of watching his relationship disintegrate on national TV, and tried to parry nearly every question back to his charitable foundation and NBA free agency.

Asked whether the omnipresent reality TV cameras were partly to blame for his marriage falling apart, Humphries acknowledged the constant tabloid scrutiny took a toll. "I can't say for sure or not for sure, it was the only time I've been married ... I've been in the NBA since I was 19 years old, and it's a different level, but for me it's all about moving forward and being excited about the opportunity to give back through my foundation," he said.

Bill Maher Hopes the Republicans Won't Do Anything Silly While His Show's on Hiatus (VIDEO)

by Stephanie Opella, posted Nov 14th 2011 5:30PM
Friday night's episode of 'Real Time With Bill Maher' was the last show of its fall season, and coincided perfectly with Rick Perry's "Oops!" debate gaffe and the Herman Cain sexual harassment scandal. Maher went on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM ET on ABC) to dish on the Republican field, and voiced his hope that the candidates would refrain from doing embarrassing things until his show returns in January.

The first thing George Stephanopoulos asked about was the $1 million to $1 bet Maher made with Michelle Caruso Cabrera that Herman Cain wouldn't end up as the 2012 Republican nominee. Maher defended his bet by noting, "This is a guy who's wearing a pimp hat through a ... sex scandal," and also brought up the fact that Cain's 9-9-9 tax plan was written by "his branch manager at Wells Fargo." When Stephanopoulos reminded Maher that Cain is still leading, Maher responded, "That's just because they hate Mitt Romney," and Stephanopoulos couldn't help but agree with his assessment.

Kris Jenner on Kim Returning the Ring: 'I Hate an Indian Giver' (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Nov 3rd 2011 1:15PM
Kris Jenner's damage control tour veered off course Thursday on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM ET on ABC) when she cavalierly advised Kim to keep the million-dollar ring Kris Humphries gave her. Previously, Kris had been saying all the right things, insisting that wedding gifts would be donated to charity and that the family didn't profit from the reality TV spectacle.

But she appeared to step in it on 'GMA,' when, responding to a rash of stories reporting that spurned-husband Kris would like the ring back, Jenner said, "Well, I hate an Indian giver. Don't you? I mean, it's a gift. Keep your gift," she said, laughing. We'll see how the comment resonates, but it seemed to strike a callous and possibly offensive tone.

'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' busJoplin, Missouri hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons back in May when it was ravaged by a giant tornado that killed 162 people and destroyed an estimated 2,000 buildings.

As survivors reeled from the catastrophe they got some good news from the 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' gang, who announced they would help rebuild homes for some of those dispossessed by the tragedy.

In what producers say is one of the largest projects ever undertaken by the reality show, 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' started work Wednesday on the ambitious plan to build seven houses in seven days.

'Good Morning America' host Sam Champion was on hand to reveal the names of the deserving families -- some of whom lost children in the disaster -- who will benefit from the new homes. 'GMA' will be reporting on progress throughout the week leading up to Ty Pennington's "Move the bus!" on Oct. 26.

Kris Jenner talks about her 'momager' role with the Kardashians on 'Good Morning America'Keeping up with the Kardashians is a full-time job for their "momager" Kris Jenner. Jenner was on 'Good Morning America' (Weekdays, 7AM on ABC) Tuesday discussing her role as part mom, part manager, to the Kardashian girls. She not only has to mediate infighting between her daughters, but also has to deal with gripes directed her way if one or more of the kids thinks she's being treated unfairly.

One of the clips from the segment showed Kris announcing she had secured a perfume deal for Kim. That miffed Khloe. "You get Kim her own deal first, and then it's the three of us?" she said. "I will sue the [poop] out of you." Kris asked her, "Are you insane?"

Former 'Goddess' Bree Olson Thinks Charlie Sheen Is Just a Bored, Funny Guy (VIDEO)

Bree Olson (right) with Charlie Sheen, whom she described as a bored, normal guy on 'Good Morning America'There have been many theories to explain the Charlie Sheen train wreck: most centered on drug use or psychological problems. Thursday on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC), one of Sheen's former "goddesses," Bree Olson, said he was just a bored guy who liked to tell jokes and say strange things for stress relief.

What about those interviews in which Sheen claimed to be on a drug called Charlie Sheen? "He would still talk the truth of stuff but at the same time he was just cracking so many jokes because he was just bored," said Olson. "People that don't know him, they just don't get it." Or the podcasts, where Sheen seemed even more out of touch with reality? "Maybe that was his way of venting or getting stress out," said Olson. "Stress relief. Because I was with him almost every time of the day and he seemed perfectly kosher and fine to me."

Paris Hilton before walking out of an interview on 'Good Morning America'Paris Hilton walked out of an interview with Dan Harris that aired Wednesday on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC), amid questions about her fading star and the low ratings for her new show, 'The World According to Paris.'

Harris asked Hilton if she was worried about low ratings for the show. She replied, flatly, "no." Harris then asked if Hilton ever worries that her moment may have passed, which flustered the heiress. As Hilton looked off-camera to her publicist, Harris said, "You wanna wrap up?" and Hilton walked off. At the end of the hub-bub, we hear Hilton saying, "I don't want all of this being used." She apparently did not get her wish.

'GMA' Reports on Marc Anthony-Jennifer Lopez Split (VIDEO)

Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez on 'Good Morning America'Judging by their recent public appearances, Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez seemed to have a happy, healthy marriage. They performed together on the season finale of 'American Idol,' which ended with a passionate kiss. Three weeks ago, Anthony was on 'The Talk' waxing romantic about the first time he met J-Lo, and talking about being "all in" for the marriage. So it came as something of a shock when they announced Friday that they were divorcing after seven years of marriage, which 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC) reported Monday.

'GMA' quoted the couple's statement to the press Friday, which said, "We have decided to end our marriage. This was a difficult decision." The report also mentioned Lopez's banner year, including her job judging 'American Idol,' People magazine naming her the "World's Most Beautiful Woman," and her new single 'On the Floor.'

'GMA' also mentioned that Lopez has had several high-profile relationships, and was married twice previous to her marriage to Anthony. The report also mentioned the cliché "Seven Year Itch," which seemed like a reach for an explanation.

Brad Paisley Performs for Four-Year-Old Fan on 'GMA' (VIDEO)

Brad Paisley performs 'Nobody's Fool' from the 'Cars 2' soundtrack on 'Good Morning America'With two songs on the 'Cars 2' soundtrack, Brad Paisley could be opening up a whole new, younger audience for himself. That was certainly the case Friday morning on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC), when Paisley performed his song 'Nobody's Fool' for a crowd that included a four-year-old lifelong fan.

Anchor Robin Roberts was interviewing Paisley, who was named CMA Entertainer of the Year and will co-host the awards with Carrie Underwood in November, and asked him what his favorite song to perform was. "Anything new that's a hit, anything that's brand new, because you haven't worn it out and you're still experimenting with it," said Paisley, noting he was learning in front of the fans.

Roberts pointed to the boy in the crowd, who was hoisted on his father's shoulders, and suggested Paisley use him as inspiration. The father said it was his son's fourth birthday, and that Paisley had been his favorite "ever since he was two" years old. "His whole life," Paisley said. It doesn't get too much more brand new than that.

'GMA' Examines New Trend, 'Owling' (VIDEO)

Owling on 'Good Morning America'Planking is officially so last week. The kids are no longer laying themselves flat, taking pictures of themselves in public places and posting them on the internet, according to 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC). Now they're squatting with their arms at their sides, taking pictures of themselves in public places, and posting them on the internet. The practice is imaginatively called "Owling."

"I really think there are a lot of things everybody could be doing," said Josh Elliott. "Apparently it's sweeping the nation, and the studio here today." The camera then cut to different crew members and cameramen squatting in places slightly higher than where they would normally sit. Crazy stuff.

So what's the next noun plus gerund to become a big trend? Let's start it right here, people. How about "Standing?" Take pictures of yourself in a normal vertical stance at the post office, in the park, or even, if you're really nuts, at your office. Get posting. These trends don't start themselves.

Sam Champion and Bert the Conquerer Interrupt 'GMA' From a Scissor Lift (VIDEO)

Bert Kreischer and Sam Champion take a ride on a scissor lift on 'Good Morning America'Back in May, Bert Kreischer (of 'Bert the Conqueror') terrified himself and Sam Champion by riding an old wooden roller coaster and a wild amusement park cliff swing. Wednesday on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC), Champion got his little revenge by putting Kreischer on a scissor lift that popped up outside the studio window during a segment.

Champion estimated the lift took them three and a half or four stories up. To Kreischer, it felt more like five. "I thought it was just the glare of the light," said Champion, "but Bert is actually bright red." Kreischer pointed out that birds were circling them as Champion said Kreischer genuinely doesn't like heights. "Or being on a fifty-foot roller skate," added Kreischer.

Regardless of Kreischer's overwhelming fear, he did say that Times Square looked "gorgeous" from their vantage point. Gorgeous enough that he wanted to look at it up close, from ground level.

Eden and Mickie Wood of 'Toddlers & Tiaras' on 'Good Morning America'Imagine retiring at six years old. According to 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC), 'Toddlers & Tiaras' star Eden Wood is doing just that, leaving behind the reality show and pageant scene. The piece said Wood (and, of course, her mother Mickie) is planning "her next big move." That will include a memoir, actions figures, and a canopy bed collection.

The 'GMA' correspondent asked Mickie if she thought she was teaching Eden that being famous is what's important. "No," said Mickie, "because so much of her life has nothing to do with that. As long as she enjoys what we're doing and what she's doing, mama's gonna keep doing it. If, you know, if it leads to the Miley Cyrus status or the Selena Gomez or whoever, so be it. If it doesn't, that's fine, too."

Polygamy is considered a felony punishable by jail time in Utah. Season two of 'Sister Wives' debuted in March to improved ratings over the first season. Count on TLC to keep the cameras rolling during the impending legal battle.
