Not everyone is happy about Carrie Underwood taking on the role of Maria Von Trapp in the live remake of ‘The Sound of Music’, she’s actually getting lots of negative feedback for it. Carrie told Entertainment Weekly, “I get hate tweets and stuff like, ‘You’re not Julie Andrews!’ I know I’m not Julie. Nobody is and I would never pretend that I was … I know my place.”

Julie Andrews was the original lead almost 50 years ago in 1965. The NBC event will air live this Thursday, Dec. 5 at 8 p.m.


Ryan Seacrest will ring in the New Year in Times Square with some good company: Jennifer Hudson, Jason Derulo, Fall Out Boy, Enrique Iglesias and Robin Thicke are all set to perform at Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest 2014. The show will air at 10 p.m. ET on Dec. 31 on ABC. Jenny McCarthy and Fergie return as hosts of the East and West coast parties.

Additional performers will be announced at a later date.


Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore finally finalized their divorce on Wednesday. Apparently an inside source told People magazine, ”Ashton and Mila have talked about getting engaged and married for quite awhile. He wants to get engaged during the holidays. Ashton’s been waiting for his divorce to be over for a long time. He was annoyed it took so long. It was hanging over his head.”

In the new December/January issue of Details magazine, he said “They’re gonna stop the Mario Batali orange! It’s preposterous! But they’re doing pretty well without me. I just ordered 200 more [pairs]. They made a special run for me before they retired the color.”


By now you’ve probably seen Kanye West and Kim Kardashian‘s steamy “Bound 2” music video. Well, one eager fan actually bought the motorcycle Kim straddles Kanye on…or at least that’s what its seller on eBay claims.
The post appears to have gone up yesterday and was sold shortly thereafter. The starting bid for it was 4,500 British pounds, or just over $7,300. No details yet about the lucky buyer.
