Despite the controversy surrounding Chaz Bono in his selection as a contestant on the newest season of Dancing with the Stars, Bono says that he has received some positive comments. "I got so many positive tweets yesterday, I couldn't get through them all," Chaz revealed during a photo shoot with partner Lacey Schwimmer.
Even with all of the positivity, Chaz says "I had my first Dancing with the Stars breakdown," acknowledging that at 42-years-old it can be painful to learn a new physical activity. "Hopping hurts," said Chaz.
Sandra Bullock spoke exclusively to ET this week to state that she is not pregnant nor is she dating actor Ryan Reynolds. Despite a recent cover for OK! magazine that reads "A Baby at 47," Bullock says she is not pregnant nor does she have plans to adopt another child at this time. As for Reynolds, Bullock states that the two are just friends and have been for over a decade.
Susan Lucci, star of the long-running soap opera All My Childrenspoke out this past week about the cancellation of her show. In a recently updated paperback edition of her book All My Life: A Memoir, Lucci added a heated epilogue in which she vents about the cancellation of the long running soap opera. Directly naming ABC Daytime head Bryan Frons as the subject of her heated statements, Lucci says, "An iconic show was losing out to greed. If Brian Frons could show his bosses that he could save the network 40 percent, he could keep his job even if the rest of us lost ours." Lucci's rep declined to comment.
