Katie Couric: New ABC Show Will Be Like 'Oprah'
“It’s gonna be topical, it’s gonna be live, you know, hopefully it will deal with various issues,” she told Jay Leno during an interview Monday.

Kalup and Franco EP being released July 12
Kalup and Franco is the duo of Kalup Linzy, a video/performance artist who frequently performs in drag, and James Franco, an Oscar-nominated movie star (127 Hours, Spider-Man) who has quickly become one of Hollywood's biggest weirdos. The partnership formed after Franco invited Linzy to perform on GENERAL HOSPITAL during Franco's stint on the soap opera, and they've since become a performance duo and a musical act. On July 12, they'll release their debut EP Turn It Up on Dutty Artz, the label co-founded by the globe-trotting, genre-mashing theorist DJ /rupture.

The EP will be available as a digital download and as a limited-edition 7". It features two songs, "Rising (Both Sides Now)" and "Turn It Up (So We Can Turn It Out)", co-produced by DJ /rupture and his Nettle bandmate Brent Arnold, and "Rising" also features production from /rupture's Dutty Artz partner Matt Shadetek. Linzy produced a third track, "Fly Away". The duo intends to make music videos for each of those three songs, which will feature "surprise guest cameos."

Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo Dishes About Her GENERAL HOSPITAL Departure
"But we did shoot it! I have no idea why they didn't air our honeymoon. I don't get involved in the business aspect of things but I thought we shot some really beautiful material, and there was a lot of it! But they have their bigger picture to worry about, and I have a lot of respect for that. The show comes first. It's not about us."

LA REINA DEL SUR broke records (and ground) for Telemundo
"Let’s not forget that the telenovela’s 63 one-hour episodes also featured some sizzling, never-before-seen on-Spanish-language-television sex scenes, including a heated kissing session between Teresa Mendoza and "La Teniente" (played by Spanish actress Cristina Urgel). The scene was so hot that it was even censored in Mexico, where apparently it’s OK to show a bunch of drug lords shooting at each other with AK-47s in broad daylight, but a lesbian kiss? They don’t think so!"
