February 22, 2014
What had ETonline readers buzzing this week?
It's the end of a Voice era.
CeeLo Green just announced that he's leaving the hit NBC singing competition during a taping of The Ellen DeGeneres Show airing Wednesday, revealing that he does not plan to return to the show "at all."
"I'm going to miss The Voice too. So I'm not coming back guys," he told DeGeneres, adding that he didn't want to "wear out [his] welcome."
Green has been on The Voice for four seasons.
As for his future plans?
The 39-year-old musician will still be working with NBC, dishing that he has a television show development deal with the network and other talk show opportunities. He also will release another album.
"I have so many other things that I want to do. I haven't released an album in four years. I'm almost done with my album," he said.
Barbara Walters' confession on Monday's The View most certainly had some viewers yelling, "TMI!"
The journalist admitted to her co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Jenny McCarthy, Sherri Shepherd and guest host Ross Mathews that she does in fact own a vibrator. The confession came up during Hot Topics when the subject of "self-love" was being discussed.
"Do you have more confidence and more self-love?" McCarthy inquired. Walters asked, "Self-love?"
"You know, self love Barbara. Friday night self-love," Shepherd chimed in.
Despite Goldberg saying she "can't handle it" if Walters started talking about her vibrator again, the 84-year-old quipped, "You know what it's called? A selfie!"
"The name of Barbara's vibrator is 'selfie,'" Goldberg added. "Fantastic."
Philip Seymour Hoffman designated in a 2004 will that his longtime girlfriend and mother of his three children should inherit his estate and that his children be raised outside of Hollywood.
In the will made public on Wednesday, the Academy Award-winning actor names Marianne "Mimi" O'Donnell as the sole beneficiary and identifies her as his "friend and companion."
The will also requested that Cooper -- his only son in 2004 who is now 10 years old -- "be raised and reside in or near the borough of Manhattan in the State of New York, or Chicago, Illinois, or San Francisco, California." It adds: "The purpose of this request is so that my son will be exposed to the culture, arts and architecture that such cities offer." Hoffman and O'Donnell were together for 14 years and were also parents to two daughters, Tallulah, 7, and Willa, 5.
Philip Seymour Hoffman, 46, was found dead on February 2 inside his New York City apartment of an apparent heroin overdose.
Megan Fox and husband Brian Austin Green are now the proud parents of two, People reports.
According to the news source, the couple welcomed a baby boy recently, marking their second son together. Fox gave birth to Noah Shannon in September 2012.
The new bundle of joy will join Noah, 16 months, and Kassius, 11, Green's son from a previous relationship.
Fox, 27, and Green, 40, first met in 2004 when Fox was still a teenager. After calling off their 2006 engagement in 2009, the couple became engaged once again in 2010 and married shortly after.
Juno star Ellen Page came out as a gay woman Friday at the Human Rights Campaign's THRIVE conference benefiting LGBTQ youth in Las Vegas, Nevada.
"I'm here today because I am gay," Page, 26, told the audience. "And because maybe I can make a difference. To help others have an easier and more hopeful time. Regardless, for me, I feel a personal obligation and a social responsibility."
She also said that she was "tired of lying" by staying silent on the rumors that have surrounded her sexual orientation.
"I also do it selfishly, because I am tired of hiding and I am tired of lying by omission. I suffered for years because I was scared to be out. My spirit suffered, my mental health suffered and my relationships suffered. And I'm standing here today, with all of you, on the other side of all that pain," she said. "I am young, yes, but what I have learned is that love, the beauty of it, the joy of it and yes, even the pain of it, is the most incredible gift to give and to receive as a human being. And we deserve to experience love fully, equally, without shame and without compromise."
"Thank you @HRC and everyone for all the love and support. X," she later tweeted in response to overwhelming responses of support she has received through social media.
