Mariah Carey isn't holding back her feelings! She slammed "American Idol" in her most recent interview, calling the show "boring and fake." Mariah Carey said, "That was the worst experience of my life. I'm not going to get into what it was. Let's just say, I don't think they had any interest in us having a good experience through that show. Pitting two females against each other wasn't cool. It should have been about the contestants instead of about some non-existent feud that turned into even more ridiculousness. I would never be involved in it again." You're coming through crystal clear! Listen to it for yourself at the 8 minute mark!
Nearly seven months after getting engaged in his barn in Arlington, Iowa, Chris Soules and Whitney Bischoff have called it quits! The Bachelor couple released a statement and said that they "have mutually and amicably decided to end their engagement. They part with nothing but respect and admiration for one another and will continue to be supportive friends." The Bachelor just has bad luck, these couples don't last after the show!
He's going to be the hottest old man ever when he gets up in the 70s, just mark my words! One of the sexiest things about George Clooney is that he embraces his age. Rest assured that he has no planes to even dye his grey hair. George Clooney said, "You have to come to terms with getting older and not trying to fight it. I'm a big believer in the idea that you can't try to look younger. You just have to try to look the best you can at the age you are." I'd say that at the age of 54, that approach is working for him. Don't change or dye a thing!
Guess who broke another record? That's right, Taylor Swift! Her album 1989 is now the first album since Adele's to produce THREE number one hits! The jump from #53 to #1 by "Bad Blood" is the biggest jump to the top since Taylor Swift's song, "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" back in 2012. So she's actually beating HERSELF! Taylor Swift beat out Wiz Khalifa's song "See You Again" to break the record! Congratulations, again!
Late night talk shows has seen it's fair share of changes, especially with David Letterman just stepping down after 33 years. Then you have Jon Stewart ending his time at The Daily Show and even Chelsea Handler is bringing her show to Netflix! Well, Rolling Stone Magazine polled their readers on who they thought was the greatest host in TV history. Guess what, it's not Jimmy Fallon… or David Letterman. Here are the results. Jimmy Fallon came in fifth, Steve Allen was fourth, Conan O'Brien was third, David Letterman was second, and the number one spot went to Johnny Carson!
It's been almost a year since Tracy Morgan got into that car crash that left him critically injured, but now he's ready to tell his story.

Ed Sheeran doesn't say no to his fans often, but when it came to this he had to turn them down. It wasn't even a kid, it was a parent that had the odd request! Ed Sheeran said, "There was a woman in San Francisco, she wanted me to be her daughter's first kiss -- and her daughter was 9. She was like, 'Well, Carrie Underwood did it for this 11-year-old boy last week!' If Carrie Underwood kisses an 11-year-old boy, he goes into school the next day and they go, 'Oh, you absolute lad!' If a 9-year-old girl goes into school and goes, 'I got kissed by a 24-year-old yesterday,' police are being called, you know?" I'd say that's fairly accurate.
ChooseMyPlate.gov has published the recipe for a healthy alternative to S'mores, that melted-chocolate-and-marshmallow-on-graham-cracker concoction that's so messy and wonderful, especially in the summer.
Ready? Instead of chocolate, strawberries. Instead of marshmallow, yogurt.
And instead of graham crackers, a couple of pieces of cardboard.
Okay, that last part's not real, but it might as well be.
Nothing wrong with strawberries and yogurt - they make a nice parfait.
But they pale in comparison to melty, drippy, messy chocolate and marshmallow.
It's National Burger day! America loves them. So do I. In Memphis I love a bunch of different places. Huey's has always been a local favorite. Tops Bar B Q rocks the house with their burger. Simple-mustard-onion and it comes off a seasoned grill. The Green Beetle downtown has an amazing burger...Great flavor and a really fresh bun. Dyers also is on any list. Old grease from 1945 and a simple clean taste. Instant yum. Houston's really blows the doors off their burgers too.
Those are a few. More on the tadio today at 7:25.

Yesterday we knew that four advertisers pulled their ads from TLC's 19 Kids and Counting. Walgreens, Payless ShoeSource, and Choice Hotels were some of the brands that said goodbye. Now seven more companies have pulled their ads from the show. David's Bridal, Pure Leaf Iced Tea, Ace Hardware, ConAgra, Party City, and Behr all made their announcements on social media. TLC still hasn't announced that they are cancelling the show. My sources are telling me that there's a new plan in the works: spinoff shows that would focus on the kids, newlyweds Jill and Derick Dillard and Jessa and Ben Seewald. The show had the highest ratings when they focused on them. Hmm… could it work?

The terms and conditions of Tracy Morgan's settlement with Walmart remain confidential, but Tracy Morgan released a statement saying, "Walmart did right by me and my family, and for my associates and their families.

When I first heard this I thought it was ludicrous but now it's starting to make more sense. Kris Jenner is trying to trademark the word "momager," a term her kids call her for managing them all. Well now we know why. Kris Jenner has filed legal documents to secure the trademark for the word "momager" for a new lifestyle brand she;s launching It's plan is to empower moms and women and is going to be called Momager. So now it's a little less ridiculous.
I can't believe she did it! Lindsay Lohan did what we all didn't think was possible. She completed her community service! According to the prosecutor, Lindsay Lohan did it just in the nick of time. He confirmed that she did about 8 hours a day for several weeks without a break to get the job done! Lindsay Lohan's lawyer will be in court today with proof that the 125 hours were completed. If this really happens, this will be the first time in nearly 7 years that Lindsay Lohan will be off probation. CONGRATULATIONS!
