Miranda Lambert performs with Pisol Annies on 'Good Morning America'It's been almost three years since Miranda Lambert released her last album, 'Revolution.' The musical drought is about to end for Lambert's fans. Friday on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC), she announced that her new album, 'Four The Record,' will hit shelves on November first, and performed with her new group, Pistol Annies, which also has a new album coming out August 23.

In the tradition of The Ramones and the Traveling Wilburys, each member of the Pistol Annies is an "Annie" - Ashley Monroe is "Hippie Annie," Angaleena Presley is "Holler Annie," and Lambert is "Lone Star Annie." "We all write songs together," said Lambert, "and we all have separate styles artistically on our own, but together we just make up this, this chick group that sings about what most girls want to say but don't, you know."

The Annies performed a twangy, sultry version of their debut single, 'Hell On Heels,' the title track from the forthcoming album.

Nancy Grace and Dan Abrams discuss the Casey Anthony verdict on 'Good Morning America'Nancy Grace has spent the last several weeks railing against Casey Anthony, and the last twenty-four hours against the "not guilty" verdict in her trial. Appearing Wednesday on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC), Grace was more in control, discussing with Dan Abrams how testimony from Anthony's family influenced that case and what Casey's life might be like now that she is an infamous celebrity.

Abrams and Grace agreed that Anthony's family had been persuasive to the jury, especially Casey Anthony's mother Cindy's emotional testimony. "I think that they [the family] believed a conviction was coming down, but not a death penalty, if they could stop it," said Grace.

Spencer also marveled that the paparazzi never managed to catch Radcliffe with a drink in his hand. It helps if you have a cloak of invisibility to hide your hooch.

Howie Kohlenberg claims 'The Marriage Ref' ruined his marriage on 'Good Morning America''The Marriage Ref' is supposed to settle disputes between married couples, but according to former contestant Howie Kohlenberg, it broke his marriage apart. Kohlenberg appeared Wednesday on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC) and blamed the show and its creator, Jerry Seinfeld, for his divorce. After getting a taste of fame from appearing on the show's debut episode, Kohlenberg said that his then-wife's Christine's behavior began to change for the worse.

"They were saying how Christine looked so great and her lips were beautiful and all of a sudden she's getting a really big head, she's doing some Botox, she wants to do Playboy," said Kohlenberg. After the show, she left Kohlenberg and their four-and-a-half-year old son to go to Hollywood, he said.

Seinfeld's reaction to the story, which was quoted in the Daily News, was a less-than-apologetic "Love it!" The couple initially went on 'The Marriage Ref' to get publicity for their spa business, which, like their marriage, is now defunct.

George Stephanopoulos and Michele Bachmann Spar Over the Founding Fathers and Slavery (VIDEO)

George Stephanopoulos and Michele Bachmann on 'Good Morning America' Michele Bachmann has only been an officially-declared presidential candidate for 36 hours, but she's already on the defensive over her propensity for making controversial, factually dubious statements. Monday, the news cycle feasted after she gaffed by mistaking the home town of serial killer John Wayne Gacy for that of film legend John Wayne. Tuesday on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC), George Stephanopoulos pressed her on a statement she made months ago that the founding fathers had "worked tirelessly to end slavery."

"You have the worst record of making false statements of any of the leading contenders," Stephanopoulos said. Challenging Bachmann on the statement concerning slavery, Stephanopoulos pointed out that many of the founding fathers, including Washington and Jefferson, were slaveholders.

Bachmann first responded evasively. "What our Constitution has done for our nation is to give us the basis of freedom unparalleled in the rest of the world," Bachmann replied. "That's what people want to get back to because they realize that our government is taking away our freedom."

Alicia Keys on 'Good Morning America'Alicia Keys sounded an optimistic note Tuesday morning on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC). Keys has every reason to be feeling good: she just released a reissue of her debut album, 'Songs In A Minor,' to celebrate its tenth anniversary. Keys is happily married, the mother of an 8-month-old son, and she's spreading her wings as a producer on Broadway with a play called 'Stick Fly.'

'GMA' host Robin Roberts asked Keys if all of that makes it into the music somehow. "That's what also the tenth anniversary is about, you know, the future," she said. "It's about celebrating where I've come from so we can really continue to go on into the future. Because it's going to be an incredible future."

Keys also performed her love letter to her home town, 'Empire State of Mind (Part II),' as the cabs and people passed behind her in Times Square. It made a perfect setting for a song about the city.

Bristol Palin on 'Good Morning America'Sarah Palin hasn't announced that she's running for the presidency, but her daughter Bristol Palin said Monday on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC) that if it does happen, it would be a good thing for America. Bristol, promoting her new book, 'Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far,' also talked about more controversial topics with Robin Roberts, including her memoir's claims that Levi Johnston "stole" her virginity and her recent corrective jaw surgery.

Pressed by Roberts about her allegations against Johnston, Bristol clarified that she wasn't accusing him of date-rape, but called losing her virginity a "foolish decision." She also addressed her recent jaw surgery, which caused a mini-media firestorm several weeks ago. Bristol put the procedure in the same category as getting braces or contact lenses.

Florence and the Machine on 'Good Morning America'You've probably heard the music of Florence and the Machine, but Friday on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC), Florence Welch explained the origin of the band's name, and introduced the machine herself, before they performed their hit song 'Dog Days Are Over' on GMA's Summer Concert Series.

"It's funny because it kind of started as a private joke between me and Isabella, over here," said Welch, motioning toward her keyboard player, Isabella Summers. "This is Isa Machine, the original Isa Machine. And I was Florence Robot. So the first name for the band was actually Florence Robot/Isa Machine, but that's really long."

The band then kicked into their most recognized single, 'Dog Days Are Over,' which some may recognize from its use on the TV shows 'Glee,' 'Gossip Girl,' 'Community,' and 'Covert Affairs.'

Raven-Symone on 'Good Morning America'On her new show, 'State of Georgia,' Raven-Symone plays a woman from Georgia who moves to New York City to become a star. Of course, Raven-Symone has been a star since she was four-years-old, when she played Olivia on 'The Cosby Show.' Thursday on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC), Raven-Symone talked about the new show and some show-business advice she got from Bill Cosby.

Raven-Symone was thankful to have had Cosby, a legendary comedian and television icon, as a mentor from an early age. "He told me that this is a business, and you have to stay professional," she said. "No matter how much glitz and glamour or money that you can collect, it's all about, can people respect your business ethic."

She'll also be joined by a couple of TV veterans on 'State of Georgia': Loretta Devine ('Boston Public,' 'Grey's Anatomy') and Majandra Delfino ('Roswell'). A TV staple for most of her life, it's hard to believe that Raven-Symone is still only 25-years-old.

Five-Year-Old YouTube Makeup Expert Makes Over 'GMA' Ladies

Five-year-old makeup guru Madison Hohrine on 'Good Morning America'Should a five-year-old be giving advice on anything? If it's YouTube sensation Madison Hohrine, whose makeup tutorials have garnered over a million views, quite possibly. Wednesday on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC), Bianna Golodryga and Robin Roberts got some tips on makeup from Madison.

Madison thought both of them looked pretty, but said that Roberts could use blush on her cheeks. Golodryga also needed some blush, and also some pink lipstick and purple eye shadow. "Clearly I needed a lot more help than you did," joked Golodryga, addressing Roberts. "I love when someone says, 'You're pretty, but...'" said Roberts.

For the record, Madison's mom has stated in the notes of at least one of her YouTube videos that she doesn't let Madison wear makeup, and that mom lets Madison borrow her makeup -- Madison has none of her own. That is, until the sponsors start calling ...

'GMA' Investigates Fried Kool-Aid, America's Latest and Greatest Delicacy (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Jun 21st 2011 1:40PM
Fried Kool Aid on 'Good Morning America'There are few things known to man that American chefs haven't tried to fry. Proof of that appeared Tuesday on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC) in the form of fried Kool-Aid, a new delicacy pioneered by a man named Chicken Charlie, a food vendor at the San Diego County Fair. Using a concoction of cherry-flavored Kool-Aid, water and flour, his ingenious creation looks like a sweet potato and, according to customers, tastes like a doughnut.

According to the story, Charlie went through 150 pounds of Kool-Aid powder in his opening weekend. Customers raved about it; Charlie said he knew it was going to be a big seller, but wasn't expecting the nationwide attention he's gotten for it. Kool-Aid certainly sounds tastier than some other things he's tried. "I will fry anything," said Charlie. "I fried a gentleman's shoe and a customer took a bite of it and she loved it".

Back in New York, the crowd outside the 'GMA' studio seemed to enjoy the fried Kool-Aid creation. Robin Roberts even went so far as to say it "tastes like Kool-Aid." Go figure.

Cameron Diaz on 'Good Morning America'Cameron Diaz made some very specific choices for her title role in the new film 'Bad Teacher.' Monday on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC), she explained one of the more prominent choices, displaying her character's consumer nature by constantly eating the worst junk food she could find in every scene. The crew didn't think she'd be able to handle it, but she enjoyed herself.

"She's always taking, taking," said Diaz. "So I decided that I was gonna, in every scene, be eating something or drinking something or chewing on something. So I, the whole film, all I did was ... and all the worst foods like corn dogs and fried chicken. It was really just an excuse to eat all of that bad food."

The prop guys had a spit bucket ready for her, but she declined and just ate the food. They christened her "The Intestinator" for her iron constitution.

George Stephanopoulos discusses Anthony Weiner on 'The View'Anthony Weiner resigned his position as U.S. Representative Thursday in the wake of a scandal that involved his sending lewd photos of himself to women via Twitter. His behavior shocked many, including 'Good Morning America' co-host George Stephanopoulos, who spoke on the subject Thursday on 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC).

"I was, you know, as shocked as anybody else just by the compulsion that he demonstrated," said Stephanopoulos. "You heard the first story, said 'Well, this might be true.' But then he came out and talked to every single reporter in the country and said it's not true, I'm the victim here. That's what surprised me."

Just hours after Weiner's resignation, Sherri Sherpherd wondered if he could recover from the scandal. Stephanopoulos noted that Weiner has spent his whole working life in politics and he is a smart guy. But he made the point that before he did anything else, Weiner would have to get himself straightened out and settle things with his family.

Ryan and Tatum O'Neal on 'Good Morning America'Those who enjoyed watching the father-and-daughter team of Ryan and Tatum O'Neal in 1973's 'Paper Moon' might have thought they were seeing an ideal Hollywood family. It was clear that the pair worked well together -- Tatum, then 10 years old, became the youngest person to win an Oscar when she claimed Best Supporting Actress. Thursday on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC), the pair talked about how they might use that on-screen chemistry to help resolve decades of estrangement on their new OWN reality series, 'Ryan and Tatum: The O'Neals.'

"It was a way back," said Ryan. "There weren't that many paths. This looked promising because we work well together. We have a history. I thought maybe we could make more history."

Tatum agreed it would be a good setting. "We do work well together," she said. "Let's have that conversation in a work setting and we will sort of find our way back that way."

There was a light moment when Robin Roberts said there were two sides to the story. "Well, then let's hear mine," quipped Ryan. "Perfect," replied Tatum. The pair agreed their lives would be enriched by reconciling, and at the very least, the comic timing is still there.
