Drake Pokes Fun at Macklemore, Iggy at ESPYS; Chris Brown Makes an Appearance

Drake Pokes Fun at Macklemore, Iggy at ESPYS; Chris Brown Makes an Appearance

Kevin Mazur/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) — Drake took some playful jabs at Macklemore and Iggy Azalea as host of the ESPYS award show on Wednesday night.During one segment of the ESPN ceremony, which was held at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, Drake performed a song titled “Honorable Mention” — a tribute to athletes who have failed to win a championship.Singing to Oklahoma City Thunder basketball player Kevin Durant, Drake quipped, “I know you understand real talent doesn’t always win championships, like real music doesn’t always win Grammys.” A photo of Macklemore with a Grammy in hand was then shown on a screen behind Drake.After Macklemore won a bunch of Grammys earlier this year, and then sent a text message to Kendrick Lamar apologizing for his victories, Drake told Rolling Stone that Macklemore’s gesture felt “cheap” and not “genuine.”Later in “Honorable Mention,” Drake gave a shout-out to Iggy Azalea and her boyfriend, Los Angeles Lakers basketball player Nick Young, calling them a “poor man’s Jay and B,” referring to Jay Z and Beyoncé.He followed “Honorable Mention” with a song titled “Side Pieces,” about athletes’ activities with women on the road. He was joined by Brian McKnight for that one.Drake closed the segment with a song that sampled an interview with embattled Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling in which Sterling declared he’s not a racist.Drake’s enemy-turned-friend, Chris Brown, popped up during a sketch in which Drizzy was “feuding” with basketball star Blake Griffin via a series of practical jokes. As Drake was set to undergo an appendectomy, it was revealed that Chris and Blake would be the ones operating on him. They also pretended to tie up Drake so they could take over ESPY hosting duties.Drake kicked off the ESPYS with a funny monologue in which he riffed on Sterling, LeBron James returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers, and the Washington Redskins team nickname controversy, among other sports topics.

Jennifer Lopez Has a New Species of Water Mite Named After Her

Jennifer Lopez Has a New Species of Water Mite Named After Her

ABC/Ida Mae Astute(PODGORICA, Montenegro) — Jennifer Lopez’s music touches many people in many different ways. Recently a group of scientists named a new species of water mite they discovered near Puerto Rico after her.University of Montenegro biologist Vladimir Pesic explains that “J-Lo’s songs and videos kept the team in a continuous good mood when writing the manuscript [on their findings] and watching World Cup Soccer 2014.”He notes that while he and other scientists rooted for different teams during the World Cup, they could all connect with Lopez’s music.Pesic calls the gesture a small token of gratitude to J-Lo, who has Puerto Rican roots.It’s actually not unusual. Over the years, scientists have named dozens of organisms after famous people to honor them. Mick Jagger has a type of trilobite named after him, a spider was named after Bono and a marine parasite found in the Caribbean sea was named after Bob Marley.Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Jillian Michaels Reveals Why She Left “The Biggest Loser”

Jillian Michaels Reveals Why She Left “The Biggest Loser”

Andrew Southam/NBC/NBCU Photo Bank(LOS ANGELES) — Jillian Michaels wanted to be clear about one thing after she recently announced she’d be leaving The Biggest Loser.”I don’t want fans to think I feel like I’m too big for the show or that I’m seeking greener pastures. I’m so grateful to the show and so sad to leave,” she told People magazine. “There were some fundamental differences [with the show's producers] that have existed for a while.”Michaels, 40, said people were starting to see her as a villain.”In the beginning of the show it was tough love. You saw the tough, and you saw the love,” she said of how things had changed over time.More recently, she said, “You saw none of the relationships, none of the bonds that I build with my clients…millions of people have this warped negative perception of me.”In fact, people started to judge her home life with her partner and children — son, Phoenix, 2, and daughter Lukensia, 4.She said someone actually commented “about what kind of mom I must be.”Another person even brought her daughter into it, saying directly to her: “I know who your mom is — she’s a cheater. I saw it on TV.”After last season’s winner and the show were both criticized for health concerns, Michaels said, “I had to take a hard look at my work. I came to the conclusion that moving forward, I need to be able to have an impact on the outcome of what I do.”

Jennifer Aniston Reveals What She Smells Like

ABC/Rick Rowell(NEW YORK) — Jennifer Aniston just launched her new fragrance “J by Jennifer Aniston.”The Friends star spoke to People magazine on what fans can expect from the new scent.“My debut fragrance is a clean, feminine perfume. It reminds me of the way you smell when you just arrive at the beach: fresh, with a touch of sunblock and sand,” Aniston said.She continued, “This new fragrance is its complement. It has a hint of that salty sea smell that reminds me of a day spent in the ocean. It’s relaxed and refreshing.”Aside from fragrances, Aniston was also recently named spokeswoman for Living Proof hair products.Aniston, 45, told ABC News in May that she’s “all about a low-maintenance approach,” which includes only washing her hair every other day or every three days. Living Proof helps her with that.She added that her hair hasn’t always been stunning and easy to deal with, the way it is now. “It’s funny and entertaining in a way and it’s of course very flattering to say the least,” Aniston told ABC. “But I always have such a chuckle when I hear people saying I have great hair because as a kid it was always a challenge.”Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Brody Jenner Insists He and Kim Kardashian Aren’t Feuding

Jason Merritt/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) — Brody Jenner insists he’s on good terms with his stepsister, Kim Kardashian, even though he didn’t attend her wedding.Jenner raised suspicions of a possible fight between the two when he didn’t show up for the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star’s wedding to Kanye West in Europe back in May.At the 9th Annual All-Star Celebrity Kick-Off Party in Los Angeles on Monday, Jenner told People magazine, “Not going to Kim’s wedding was not me trying to diss her and Kanye.”Brody cited a previous engagement as the reason, explaining, “I simply had a very last-minute thing. They didn’t want to let people know about their wedding early in advance, and I had already booked gigs in Chicago and some other places, so I was already working.”The 30-year-old reality TV star also denies stories that Kim didn’t invite his girlfriend Kaitlyn to the wedding. “Of course Kim would let me bring my girlfriend if I wanted to,” he tells the magazine, adding, “I’m her brother — it’s her wedding. I am allowed to bring someone if I want to.”While Jenner missed Kim and Kanye’s affair, he did make the wedding of Kim’s ex-boyfriend, football player Reggie Bush, in San Diego, California, this past Saturday.”I’ve been friends with Reggie for a very long time,” Brody explains. “I really love him and he’s one of my favorite people on this entire planet. I got to have a really close relationship with him through him and Kim being together.”Jenner’s taking all the feuding rumors in stride. “The only opinion that matters in this situation is Kim’s, and me and her are good,” he declares, adding, “She is incredible.”Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

“Million Dollar Listing Miami” Star Talks Being First Female Realtor in Franchise

“Million Dollar Listing Miami” Star Talks Being First Female Realtor in Franchise

NBC Universal(MIAMI) — Samantha DeBianchi is not only the founder of DeBianchi Real Estate, one of the top real estate firms in Florida, but she’s also the first woman to be featured on Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing franchise.The current star of Million Dollar Listing Miami tells ABC News Radio it’s not easy being the first woman to step into the fray, especially in such a male-dominated field.”I’ve been called all kinds of different things and I think when people say, ‘Oh, she’s a b***h,’ it’s funny because a man is strong and…people respect that. When a female is strong, it’s like, ‘That girl’s a b***h,’” she explains. “And I just think it’s so ironic. And so I play up that and I say, ‘You know what?  I am a b***h then,’ and I’m happy to be one because I’m very good at what I do.”Million Dollar Listing has touched down in three cities — New York, Los Angeles and now Miami. DeBianchi says she doesn’t know why it took so long to tap a woman for the show, but she thinks she knows why she was chosen for the Miami spin-off.”I’m not your typical female realtor. I’m very tough. I’m very strong,” she says. “You know, I’m very straightforward and I think I bring something different to the table and I’m just as tough as the guys.”Find out just how tough DeBianchi is when Million Dollar Listing Miami airs on Bravo Wednesday nights at 9 p.m. ET/PT.Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Why Kristen Wiig Went ‘Fully Naked’ in New Film

Why Kristen Wiig Went ‘Fully Naked’ in New Film

ABC/Randy Holmes(NEW YORK) — Kristen Wiig has played many comedic characters in her career, but now, the former Saturday Night Live star is trying her hand at drama.”I was introduced to the world as a cast member of SNL but I’ve always wanted to do dramatic stuff, to write and direct, do a lot of different things,” she told Elle magazine. “Comedy is where my heart lies, but there’s also something really satisfying about being able to step away with a small crew, become a character and get to know her for a few months at a time.”To that end, Wiig, 40, has two big projects coming down the pike: The Skeleton Twins alongside Bill Hader, and Welcome to Me, in which she portrays a woman with borderline personality disorder who wins millions in the lottery.The latter forced the actress to really push herself into new territory.”I’d never read a character like that!” she said. “I got to a scene where it read, ‘She’s fully naked,’ and I remember thinking: If I do this movie, I have to do this scene, because it’s really important to this script.”

Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino Reveals His Mother, Not Brother, Gave Him His Black Eye

Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino Reveals His Mother, Not Brother, Gave Him His Black Eye

Jason Merritt/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is back on TV in The Sorrentinos, a reality show about his family that premieres Tuesday.You can’t mention the Sorrentino family and “The Situation” without bringing up his arrest from last month, following a fight with his older brother Frank in a tanning salon they own together.The entire family — Mike, Frank, Marc, Melissa and mother Linda “Peaches” — stopped by ABC’s New York headquarters this week to clear up exactly what happened on June 17 and fire back at critics who think the fight might have been staged to promote the show.”It was a business miscommunication among family,” said the former Jersey Shore star. “At the same time, not many in this world have the ability or capacity to work with your family. It’s rewarding, I’ve always dreamt of it since I was little, but there are trials and tribulations, but at the end of the day we sit down for mama’s gravy.”Frank added that filming for The Sorrentinos had finished and that there was no way the altercation was planned because there were no cameras around at the time.”We had wrapped filming a week and a half prior to that,” Frank said.He added that the network picked up a 9th episode to film the aftermath of the brotherly fight and how the family coped with the drama.”Like all families, there is drama, there are ups and downs … ours may happen to be in front of the camera,” Marc said, adding that he’s also been fighting with Mike since he was 7. “I wish it was staged — it happens to be a very real case later this month, we believe in putting our best foot forward that it will be dismissed.”The family will go back to court in New Jersey to handle the simple assault charge against Mike. Frank said he would never press charges “against my own brother.”As for the fight itself, photos surfaced the day after of “The Situation” sporting a shiner under his right eye. He said his mother Peaches — not Frank — gave that to him!”That was Peaches, my mom got the licks in,” Mike said. “Frank did not touch me at all.”Sorrentino’s mother hit him by accident when she as trying to break up the fight between Mike and Frank.”I was trying to break them apart,” Peaches clarified. “When they were fighting, me and Melissa tried to break them up, unfortunately to try and break them up I might have hit him with a left.”Mike added, “She tried to grab me multiple times, there were multiple jabs, she kept missing she wasn’t able to grip, so that’s why I had the black eye.”Frank said following the fight he didn’t talk to Mike for a week and Mike said he even blocked his brother on Twitter.The squabble aside, Mike said he wants to show people a different side on The Sorrentinos.”On the Jersey Shore, fans only saw a part of Michael Sorrentino,” he said. “On this new show, there are a whole new set of characters as well as finally introducing the real Michael Sorrentino, not ‘The Situation.’ I don’t know if I am ever going to be able to drop the nickname, did ‘The Rock’ ever drop ‘The Rock’ … it’s part of what had made me but at the same time part of what had destroyed me, but the situation is not the whole me. It’s really a dream upon another dream to get a second shot, some people don’t even get one shot, to get another one is very special.”With Marc continuing his DJing career, Mike and Frank pursuing acting, Melissa in the process of planning her wedding and Peaches single and dating, Marc said “you get to see a family on the East Coast, I know there’s a very prominent family on the West Coast.”Mike added, “You get to see a real show,” joking about the Kardashians and adding that his show is never scripted.The Sorrentinos premieres Tuesday at 10 p.m on TVGN.

Erin Andrews Opens Up About New ‘Dream Job’

ABC/Randy Holmes(MINNEAPOLIS) — The news broke Monday that Erin Andrews would be taking over the top spot on the NFL sidelines for Fox, replacing Pam Oliver who is entering her 20th and final season with the network.Andrews told ABC News on Tuesday that the opportunity is definitely “a dream come true.”The Dancing With the Stars co-host and veteran sports reporter added that “it’s what I think I’ve wanted, it’s pretty much what every sports fan that loves the NFL would love to do at some point. To work with those guys and to be with that crew, it is a dream come true. It’s exactly what I’ve wanted.”Andrews, who joined Fox in 2012, will work with the top NFL team on the network, which includes the iconic Joe Buck and Troy Aikman.”I know I have huge, huge shoes to fill,” she added. “There’s nobody I’ve watched more over these past 15, 20 years than Pam Oliver and what she did and the precedent she set. How she worked tirelessly day in and day out and really set the standard for women and sideline reporters and so much more than that. I can’t thank her enough for being a wonderful role model. This is not going to be easy for me.”She added, “What I set out on day 1 was to be someone like Pam, I hope I can just hold up that end of the bargain.”Andrews, 36, spoke to ABC while in Minneapolis for the MLB All-Star Game and as part of the Yoplait Greek challenge. For someone as busy as Andrews, she said getting the right foods in her body is important at all times.”It’s the easiest for me on the go, when I’m running to workout or running to a DWTS rehearsals, I usually grab a plastic spoon and my yogurt,” she said of Yoplait. “It’s very good and very good for you…its perfect for me, easy for me.”Andrews said that her family couldn’t be prouder of what she’s accomplished, especially this milestone.”They are proud, they really are. It’s been a whirlwind ride for all of us. last year…I handed out the world series trophy to Boston Red Sox, a team my dad grew up loving,” she said. “A playoff game in minus 30 degree in Lambeau Field, I was at the Super Bowl, it’s just been a dream come true. Just a month ago, I watched my boyfriend play for the Stanley Cup, it’s kind of been an absolute whirlwind.”And Andrews knows that her parents Paula and Steve really helped her get to these heights.”I am trying to convince my mom to retire, trying to convince my dad get out of work so he can be with me every weekend and live this dream with me,” she said. “I’m kind of like ‘You know what, you guys already paved the way for me, just come and enjoy all this.’”Finally, Andrews wanted to be clear to DWTS fans that she still plans to co-host the show.”I am going to have time for Dancing with the Stars. That was all part of our negotiations with them. In February when they came to us, I kind of hinted when I took the job, I was going to be on the Michael Strahan program, now more so than ever,” she said. “He works crazy hours on Sunday, I’ll be doing the same thing. I’m literally going to be going from the football field to the ballroom just like ‘Stra,’ he goes from the studio in New York to his show with Kelly Ripa.”

Meredith Vieira on Returning to “The View”: ‘You Can’t Go Back’

ABC/Lou Rocco(NEW YORK) — Meredith Vieira, who served as the original moderator on ABC’s The View from its debut in 1997 until 2006, insists she has no desire to return to the show.While promoting her upcoming daytime talk show, debuting in September, at the Television Critics Association summer press tour in California on Monday, Vieira, 60, discussed The View.
According to Deadline.com, she said, “I knew after nine years it was time to leave The View,” noting, “I have a pretty good sense of timing and I always like to get out before something bad happens.”The TV journalist and talk show host has made several appearances on the program since leaving, and says she was treated “lovingly.” Vieira came to realize, however, that “you can’t go back,” explaining it would have seemed like the “crazy aunt going back.”Vieira’s remarks come on the heels of ABC’s announcement this past Thursday that Rosie O’Donnell, who co-hosted The View from 2006-2007, will return this fall.
Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy recently announced their impending departures from the show, while co-host Barbara Walters retired from her on-air role in May.
