ABC/Rick Rowell

(NEW YORK) -- Bachelorette stars Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray have ended their engagement.The couple said that the breakup was mutual. "After several months of being engaged and working on our relationship, we have decided that it's best for both of us to go our separate ways," they said in a statement obtained by People magazine. "We are very sad that it has come to this point, but this is what's best for both of us individually."

Dorfman, 27, and Murray, 30, added that they will remain "good friends.""[We] have nothing but great things to say about each other and wish each other the best," they concluded.The former Atlanta assistant district attorney got engaged to the former baseball player during last year's season finale of The Bachelorette. On Monday, she told People that wedding planning had stalled, however.

"It's time to take a little break and make a little home in Atlanta and figure it out there,” she told the magazine. "[But] I would definitely have some of the girls from my season in my wedding, at my wedding. There's definitely some girls that I’ve kept in good contact with -- they're some of my best friends.”

Joan Rivers’ Clinic Will Retain Federal Accreditation

Joan Rivers’ Clinic Will Retain Federal Accreditation

Frederick M. Brown/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The clinic on Manhattan’s Upper East Side where Joan Rivers went into cardiac arrest has avoided losing its federal accreditation for now.Yorkville Endoscopy had until Wednesday night to make improvements after federal and state health investigators found deficiencies in the practice. The clinic succeeded, according to a letter that an arm of the Department of Health and Human Services sent to the clinic.The letter, obtained by ABC News, informed the clinic that its certification will remain intact pending one final inspection at an unspecified future date.Yorkville Endoscopy came under fire after an investigation by New York State Health Department following Rivers' death uncovered deficiencies in four categories. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services then found that staff members photographed her with a cellphone while she was sedated, improperly documented how much of the sedative propofol was used, and "failed to identify deteriorating vital signs and provide timely intervention during the procedure."The comedian's daughter, Melissa Rivers, has since hired attorneys Jeffrey B. Bloom and Ben Rubinowitz to further look into the circumstances surrounding her mother's death.After the inspections' initial finding were released, the lawyers issued a statement saying, "Our client, Melissa Rivers, is terribly disappointed to learn of the multiple failings on the part of medical personnel and the clinic as evidenced by the CMS report. As any of us would be, Ms. Rivers is outraged by the misconduct and mismanagement now shown to have occurred before, during and after the procedure. Moving forward, Ms. Rivers will direct her efforts towards ensuring that what happened to her mother will not occur again with any other patient."Melissa Rivers did not immediately respond to Thursday's accreditation announcement.

New Details of Teresa Giudice’s Life in Prison

New Details of Teresa Giudice’s Life in Prison

Heidi Gutman/Bravo(DANBURY, Conn.) -- Teresa Giudice reported to federal prison in Danbury, Connecticut, earlier this week, where she will remain until next year. But how exactly will she be serving out her time?At FCI Danbury, after which she is expected to spend time at a halfway house, Giudice will live a regimented life, waking up each day at 6 a.m. (she is either sleeping in a 2-person cube or a 6- to 8-person room) and reporting to a job, prison officials said."All medically cleared inmates are assigned jobs by staff, based on institution need with a focus on the inmate's individual skills and abilities, in an effort to provide them with employable skills for release," a representative for the prison told ABC News."Inmates are required to work a standard workday of approximately 7.5 hours. This may include educational programs for inmates in need of English as second language and/or GED. When not assigned to a required program or work assignment, inmates are free to participate in optional education programs and/or recreational activities," the representative added.On weekends and federal holidays, Giudice can have visitors, and her lawyer previously told ABC News' Good Morning America that her husband Joe will be bringing their four daughters this weekend to see her.

And if she wants to freshen up for her family, the prison representative told ABC News that while she was given a pillow, sheets, a blanket, toothpaste, a toothbrush, soap, shampoo and a disposable razor upon entering prison, she is permitted to "purchase limited cosmetic supplies" from the commissary, including eyeliner pencils, mascara and lip gloss, too. Hair dye is also on the commissary list, and there is also an area in the prison where she can get her hair done.In addition, "inmates are afforded the opportunity to shower daily," the representative said. "All restrooms have dividers for individual use."Meals are also carefully planned out in advance for the inmates, with vegetarian options for those who don't eat meat.

On Thursday, lunch consisted of either baked chicken or a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, steamed rice, pinto beans, green beans, whole wheat bread with margarine and a dessert or fruit. Dinner will be a choice of beef enchilada casserole, beef and vegetables or soy enchilada casserole, steamed rice, mixed vegetables, whole wheat bread with margarine and a beverage.Snacks are also available for purchase at the commissary, including several varieties of chips, ice cream, hummus, cereal bars and cookies.As for whether there was any concern that a celebrity could disrupt life at Danbury, the representative said "none."

As for whether Real Housewives will be among the TV shows available to watch, the representative responded, "There are TVs located in community rooms. I do not know the specific shows the inmates watch."

Tina Fey Reacts to Deadly France Shooting: ‘You Cannot Back Down on Free Speech’

Tina Fey Reacts to Deadly France Shooting: ‘You Cannot Back Down on Free Speech’

ABC/RICK ROWELL(LOS ANGELES) — Tina Fey is no stranger to satire, as the former head writer for Saturday Night Live. The one-time co-anchor of SNL's "Weekend Update" said that Wednesday's deadly shooting in France, which targeted a satirical newspaper, is a reminder of the importance of free speech."I mean, obviously, that news is terrible and tragic and upsetting," Fey said onstage at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour in Los Angeles. "And, I mean, yeah, you look at that, or you look at even the controversies surrounding The Interview, it makes you remember how important free speech is and it absolutely must be defended.  And you cannot back down on free speech in any way."French President Francois Hollande confirmed Wednesday that 12 people are dead and 11 others critically injured after a shooting at the offices of Charlie Hebdo, which had published cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad.  Three years ago, the publication's offices were firebombed for the same reason.Speaking about her own experiences with controversial humor, Fey said that during her SNL days, especially after 9/11, she felt some jokes were tricky, but she couldn't remember censoring herself. "I think the closest memory I would have of that would've been back doing 'Weekend Update,' which was a long time ago, but even that was a different era because [now it's] a social media era where you make a joke on American TV and it can go worldwide...a different environment," she explained. "But we're Americans.  We have to be able to, even if it's just dumb jokes in The Interview, we have to be able to make them," Fey concluded.

Late Night Hosts, Guests React to Deadly Attack in Paris

Late Night Hosts, Guests React to Deadly Attack in Paris

Meghan Sinclair/Team Coco(LOS ANGELES) — Conan O’Brien opened his TBS show Wednesday night with a statement about the deadly attack at the office of the satirical French newspaper Charlie Hebdo in Paris.  

O'Brien said they were killed because the newspaper "made jokes that some group found offensive."O'Brien continued, "In this country, we just take it for granted that it's our right to poke fun at the untouchable or the sacred, but today's tragedy in Paris reminds us very viscerally that it's a right some people are inexplicably forced to die for."O'Brien closed his remarks by saying, "All of us are terribly sad for the families of those victims, for the people of France and for anyone in the world tonight who now has to think twice before making a joke. It's not the way it's supposed to be."

Twelve people were killed in the attack.

The attack was also a topic of conversation on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live! with guest Bill Maher. The outspoken humorist and Real Time host said for someone in the humor business, the terror attacks hit close to home because the victims were executed, "for the crime of being satirists," before adding emphatically, "This has to stop."Maher vented that political correctness is making his "fellow liberals" turn "away from the truth.""We have to not avoid who did this. Who did this, Jimmy?" Maher asked the host. "Well, we presume..." Kimmel hesitated, "No, it's not a 'presume,'" Maher interrupted. "It's Muslim terrorists. This happens way too frequently. It's like Groundhog Day, except the groundhog keeps getting his head cut off.""I know most Muslim people would not carry out an attack like this," Maher said, "but here's the important point: hundreds of millions of them support an attack like this. They applaud an attack like this. What they say is, 'Well, we don't approve of violence, but if you make fun of the Prophet, all bets are off.'...Absolutely, that is mainstream in the Muslim world: that, 'If you make fun of the Prophet, you get what's coming to you.'"Maher said liberals should care about jihadi executions of gays, saying, if [in Vatican City] they were, "chopping the heads off of Catholic gay people, wouldn't there be a bigger outcry among liberals? I ask you," Maher said to applause.David Letterman, Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers did not discuss the Paris attack on their respective shows.

Phylicia Rashad Clarifies Her Comments About Bill Cosby

Phylicia Rashad Clarifies Her Comments About Bill Cosby

Photo by Dave Kotinsky/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Phylicia Rashad doesn't have an interest in discussing the accusations of sexual misconduct launched against Bill Cosby.That conversation, she said, detracts from a bigger issue surrounding the allegations, which Cosby has vehemently denied."We are really missing what is wrong here, which is, this is the United States of America. I know it's changing, but it's still the United States of America and there are tenets that we live by," she told ABC News Wednesday. "There is the Constitution of the United States, which ensures innocence until proof of guilt and that has not happened.“But what has happened is declaration in the media of guilt, without proof. And a legacy is being destroyed because of it. It's being obliterated."Rashad, 66, worked with Cosby for more than seven years, playing his wife, Claire Huxtable, on The Cosby Show. While she never intended to publicly speak about the allegations made against her former co-star, she said she was dismayed to see that she was falsely quoted as saying, “Forget about these women" in a recent story by Roger Friedman's Showbiz411."I am a woman. I would never say such a thing. I would never think such a thing," she said. "My message is, what happens to a nation in which people knowingly and willfully disavow the tenets that describe the nation?...This is not about the women. This is about something else. This is about the obliteration of a legacy."Rashad would not speak about the women who have accused Cosby of rape, nor would she discuss the things they said happened to them. But she did open up about the "kind" and "generous" man with whom she remains friendly."Speaking to the character of the man that I know, this has not been easy. This has not been easy at all but he’s not a coward," she said. "I don’t know what he will do in that way but I know that he won’t be hiding....He likes being around people too much and he respects people."Since November, various women have spoken to media claiming Cosby drugged and sexually abused them dating as far back as the 1960s and 1970s. He has always denied the allegations.Cosby's lawyer released a statement early on, saying, "The fact that they are being repeated does not make them true."Another attorney for Cosby, Martin D. Singer, added in late November, "The new, never-before-heard claims from women who have come forward in the past two weeks with unsubstantiated, fantastical stories about things they say occurred 30, 40, or even 50 years ago have escalated far past the point of absurdity."

“American Idol” Returns: What to Expect from 14th Season

“American Idol” Returns: What to Expect from 14th Season

Michael Becker / FOX(LOS ANGELES) -- Is this the year that American Idol stages a big comeback?

Fans will find out, starting Wednesday, as the 14th season of the once-legendary Fox reality competition premieres at 8 p.m. ET.Last year, viewers were positive about the show's new judging panel, featuring Harry Connick Jr., Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban, all of whom are returning this year. But USA Today reports that for season 13, ratings were down for the third year straight, and for the first time, the show was out-gunned by NBC's The Voice. 

In addition, the debut album from last year's winner, Caleb Johnson, wasn't a success. Then, longtime Idol mainstay Randy Jackson left the show, Coca Cola pulled out as a sponsor, and later this season, the show will cut back to just one night a week.On the positive side, the show is adding a new mentor, Scott Borchetta, the head of Big Machine Records and the man who turned Taylor Swift into a superstar. And the judges are bullish on this year's batch of contestants. "There's probably, maybe, five, six, seven people that I think are really gonna be duking it out, and then all the others that we've chosen have shown sides that are really surprising," says Urban. "When they get the right song, they really step up. It's that classic thing where the dark horse can just completely trump the expected winner, and I think there's gonna be a lot of that happening this season."

Urban is also happy about the addition of Borchetta. 

"I think it's terrific," he says. "I think he's got such a good sense of how to find great talent and how to make the right record and get the right people assembled. I think he's going to be an extraordinary addition to the whole family."Asked what's changed about this season, host Ryan Seacrest jokes to ABC News Radio, "Jen has a whole new closet of shoes. So her shoes are very different this year. We’ve auditioned some of the shoes. And we’ve also auditioned the contestants."Seriously, the host adds, "We brought back a bunch to Hollywood who are really good. They’re all very different...there’s a lot of different textures on the show this year, so looking forward to introducing that crop to the audience."Seacrest allows, though, that he'll miss Jackson. 

"I’m obviously sad to see him go, because I loved working with him," he tells ABC News Radio. "But I see him quite often and he will not be absent from my life. He and I see each other quite a bit. So we’ll miss him, but the show will go on, but never be the same without him."As for Borchetta, the newest member of the family, he tells ABC News Radio, "You know, I’m having a blast. Working with these kids, it’s what we do every day at the Big Machine Label Group, as far as developing talent. So the fact that we can get in there and work with them now, before they win. ...when we’ve been involved with other shows, we don’t get to even talk to them until after they’ve won." He adds, "Now, we have an opportunity to start very early on and really help them develop and make sure they’re ready for what their life could look like after they win."Borchetta notes though, that these days, if you want to win a reality singing competition, it takes a lot more than just a killer voice."What these shows have done is they’ve kind of leveled the playing field for great singers," he explains. "So now, you have to be a great singer, but a lot more. You’ve got to have artistic vision, you’ve got to be great socially, et cetera. So I think there’s a real opportunity for us to go in and make them aware of all the things that they need to be, you know, to, to win this and be successful in 2015."What fans may be most excited about this season is the prospect of not having to sit through the dreaded results show. As Borchetta explains, that's a very good thing."In this media moment, we can tell the whole story in one night," he says. "So many times, whether it’s Idol or The Voice or some of these other shows, that second night you’re going, ‘Alright, I’m waiting around all this time just to get to the last three minutes.’ So now you don’t have to. So now it will be a really great episode every night and every night counts, which I think is, is really important."American Idol season 14 debuts at 8 p.m. ET Wednesday on Fox.

Jennifer Aniston Talks How She Finally Might Marry Justin Theroux

Jennifer Aniston Talks How She Finally Might Marry Justin Theroux

ABC/Randy Holmes(NEW YORK) — Jennifer Aniston has been engaged to fiance Justin Theroux for more than two years and now has a decision to make on how the duo finally plan to tie the knot, especially with the media hounding them constantly.“There’s a big discussion in our house right now: Do you just do it and say screw it? Or do you try desperately to get away with [a secret ceremony] where you don’t have any fun because you’re hiding in a cave somewhere?" she told InStyle for its February cover.The Cake star, 45, continued, "If we could do it without all the buzzing and the noise…It can be done. When there’s a will, there’s a way.”Aniston couldn't be happier with Theroux and said past hardships and relationships that didn't last have helped her to appreciate the Leftovers star that much more. Aniston was famously married to Brad Pitt until 2005."I mean, it’s no secret: I’ve had some challenging companionship. I think hitting a wall with that really kind of [helped me grow]. I found a really great therapist. Not to sound too 'woo woo,' but I think the self-love piece was really important," she said. "And spending a lot of time alone. Having time to ask myself why there was such toxicity in my immediate space at times. Why would I attract that instead of light?”But after the Friends star's first impression of Theroux, 43, she definitely didn't think the two would eventually be man and wife."I remember thinking, 'Isn’t he hot?' But he was actually really quiet. I later came to find out that he was just exhausted because he had been writing nonstop, like a little hamster on a wheel. This was his one night off, and he had no personality, but he was very sweet and very overdressed. I was like, 'You must be really shvitzing up a storm in those jeans and combat boots,'” she added.Now the two homebodies have found each other and Aniston dished on what the A-listers do during a typical weekend."We’ll have friends over for a big dinner party or do a movie. On Sundays Justin cooks. He’ll surprise me with some wonderful egg creation. He also makes great pasta,” she said.The February 2015 issue of InStyle hits newsstands on Friday.

Phylicia Rashad on Bill Cosby Scandal: ‘Forget These Women’

Phylicia Rashad on Bill Cosby Scandal: ‘Forget These Women’

Frank Carroll/NBCU Photo Bank(NEW YORK) — Bill Cosby’s TV wife, Phylicia Rashad, is standing by her TV man.Rashad, who played Clair Huxtable opposite Cosby’s Cliff Huxtable on The Cosby Show, told ShowBiz411.com Tuesday that she loves the veteran comedian and supports him in the wake of numerous sex abuse allegations, some decades old.Rashad tells the website she has never seen the behavior alleged by women who claim they were abused.“Forget these women,” says Rashad. “What you're seeing is the destruction of a legacy. And I think it's orchestrated. I don't know why or who's doing it, but it's the legacy. And it's a legacy that is so important to the culture.”“Someone is determined to keep Bill Cosby off TV, and it's worked. All his contracts have been canceled,” she added.When discussing the legacy of The Cosby Show, Rashad told ShowBiz411, “This show represented America to the outside world. This was the American family. And now you’re seeing it being destroyed. Why?”Rashad also defended Cosby’s wife, Camille, saying she would never have been complicit or looked the other way while her husband allegedly abused other women. “This is a tough woman, a smart woman,” says Rashad, adding: “She’s no pushover.”Cosby's lawyer has previously denied the allegations made against the comedian. He has never faced criminal charges in connection with the claims.

Marvel Gives Biggest Peek Yet at “Ant-Man”

Marvel Gives Biggest Peek Yet at “Ant-Man”

ABC/Marvel(NEW YORK) — During Tuesday night's two-hour premiere of ABC's Marvel's Agent Carter, Marvel Studios gave the biggest view yet of their tiniest hero: Ant-Man.The film stars Oscar winner Michael Douglas as Hank Pym, the scientist who became the titular hero years ago after he discovers the ability to shrink to insect size and back again. Paul Rudd co-stars as Scott Lang, a father and "master thief" who Pym urges to take up the Ant-Man mantle.The two-minute teaser shown Tuesday night is short on major details, but it does show Lang shrinking down to bug size and back, fighting baddies, and even riding on the back of a flying ant, as Lang's suit enables him to control insects as well. Marvel has said Pym, a "founding Avengers member," mentors Lang and together the unlikely pair, "must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world."Perhaps taking a cue from the sense of humor that fit so well for the trailer for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, this latest teaser isn't short on the snark. "Scott," Douglas urges in the trailer, "I need you to be the Ant-Man.""One question," Rudd's character answers. "Is it too late to change the name?"
