Congratulations to Jenny McCarthy, she is the next co-host to join "The View." The actress and former Playboy playmate was named Monday to join the panel of the ABC weekday talk show. Barbara Walters, who created "The View" in 1997 and has since served as a co-host, made the widely expected announcement on the air. Jenny McCarthy will join "The View" as Joy Behar prepares to leave after being on the show since its premiere. A remaining vacancy was created last week by Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who exited to join Fox News Channel.
It’s official! Kelly Osbourne is ready to become a Misses! She has confirmed that she and her boyfriend of one year Matthew Mosshart are officially engaged. He popped the question during a romantic vacation in Anguilla. Kelly Osbourne said: "I've never felt this close to another human being, ever.

To seal his commitment, Matthew Mosshart moved to L.A. to be with her. Congratulations to them!
Most moms, when preparing to buy a stroller, weigh their options based on things like safety, convenience and cost. Those factors are important to Kim Kardashian too, but she has at least one other criteria: that it match her baby's skin tone. She told her sister’s boyfriend Scott Disick that she wanted to be sure that the model she chose would look good with her baby's complexion because it'll be a variation of a skin tone, so she’s just trying to see what color will look good.
Justin Timberlake is now hoping that he new song “Take Back The Night” gets people thinking about more than just his music. Turns out that he was only recently made aware that Take Back The Night is also the name of a nearly 40-year-old international support group for victims of sexual violence. He said, "Upon the release of my new single 'Take Back The Night,' I was made aware of an organization of the same name called The Take Back The Night Foundation. I wanted to take this opportunity to let all know that neither my song nor its lyrics have any association with the organization." But, Justin Timberlake suggests that maybe now at least the name of his song can contribute to the conversation, even though the substance of his "Take Back the Night” is purely music. Justin Timberlake also said, "It is my hope that this coincidence will bring more awareness to this cause."
Normally you NEVER want to be late to a Dave Matthews concert, especially if you are Dave Matthews himself! Emily Kraus, a fan of Dave Matthews since she was nine, and her boyfriend were on her way to Dave Matthew's concert in Hershey, Pennsylvania when they saw him on the road stranded because he was driving his motorcycle to the show and had gotten a flat tire. Dave Matthews also didn’t have a cell phone on the bicycle. They gave him a lift to the show. Dave Matthews thanked the couple by inviting them to dinner backstage and giving them front row tickets for the show. He also signed their concert tickets, "Thanks for the ride!"
When he isn’t busy touring with Taylor Swift and singing to fans, Ed Sheeran is too busy hanging out with celebrity friends. Yup, apparently Ed Sheeran takes weekly phone calls apparently from ELTON JOHN! Ed Sheeran said, "Elton John's continually surprising me with how much he cares. He'll ring me weekly just to be like, 'Don't give up. Do this single ... I know you want to do this but do this.'" Elton John, who handpicked Ed Sheeran to perform a duet with him at the Grammys in February is still really involved in his career… and for Ed Sheeran it is so flattering and humbling that he takes so must interest in his projects. Pretty awesome!
The initial autopsy for Glee star Cory Montheith was completed yesterday and initial results should be available tomorrow. Toxicology results will be available much faster than expected because the investigation was fast-tracked, but the results being released to the public is rumored to be delayed. For now though, as the world waits, Cory Monteith’s cousin Richard Monteith has spoken out to beg the world to remember him for his successes and not what the toxicology report might reveal about his struggles with addiction and a potential relapse. He’s saying, “Please don’t judge on what is gonna be coming out. Glass half full. All the good things that he’s done. There’s more things on that side to focus on.” We will keep you up to date if those results come down today.
The world is also waiting for Kate Middleton to give birth to her first child and royal baby with Prince William. With all the last minute preparations made, all the royal couple can do is wait. But Prince William's stepmother, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, has hinted that the royal baby's birth could be later than expected. It went viral that Kate Middleton’s due date was July 11th, but during a visit to Little Harbor Children's Hospice yesterday, Camilla said, "We are all just waiting by the telephone. We are hopeful that by the end of the week he or she will be here." So is the real due date really around July 21st? Guess we will see!
Teasing, teasing is no fun! Kris Jenner loves to self-promote, and she’s trying to be EXTREMELY smart about it! As her new daytime talk show Kris debuted yesterday, Kris Jenner shared the ultimate teaser photo via the show's Twitter and Facebook in which she beams on the show's set carrying an infant baby. The caption read: "You never know who will stop by our show today!" The kicker? That baby is NOT her not-yet-seen granddaughter North West, who Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed six weeks ago. Turns out the kid is a baby of a show staffer. Kris Jenner explained, "Kim's just got to do that on her own time. Let her have her privacy for a little bit and calm down. And when she comes out, she comes out." Anything for ratings right?
