Why We're Obsessed With 'Dancing With the Stars'
Welcome to the ballroom, Dancing With the Stars fans -- after two eliminations into season 24, the competition is really heating up! While Normani Kordei and Val Chmerkovskiy topped the leaderboard last week with their steamy routine to "Hey Big Spender," we'll have to wait and see if their skills will hold up on Monday, as Nancy Kerrigan and Artem Chigvintsev, and Heather Morris and Alan Bersten are leading closely behind. Stay tuned because ET is bringing you all the DWTS coverage with weekly recaps, and breakdowns of all the standouts, surprises and slip-ups.
Chris Evans is trading in his Captain America shield for a more melodramatic role in Gifted. We love him in anything, quite frankly, but playing a single bachelor raising his prodigious 7-year-old niece proves he's more than a superhero; he's a father at heart. "You'd make an amazing father," the actor's 10-year-old co-star, Mckenna Grace, adorably admitted. "You would be a good dad. You would. You're really nice." Despite all the drama, Gifted has an energetic undertaking, full of life and humor that audiences of any age can appreciate.
The long wait is over, Coachella is here! Yes, although Beyoncé will be sitting out as the headliner due to her pregnancy, we're still gaining Mother Monster Lady Gaga, and if her set is anything like her epic Super Bowl halftime performance, we're in for a real treat. While thousands are headed to Indio, California, others will be enjoying the show from the comfort of their own couch (couchella!) because for the seventh year in a row, YouTube will be livestreaming the first weekend, April 14-16. This includes performances from Kendrick Lamar, Lorde and Radiohead -- even Gaga.
We know as Buffy the Vampire Slayer (which recently celebrated its 20th anniversary), but these days she's slaying in the kitchen. Sarah Michelle Gellar is sharing her creative and kid-friendly recipes in her new cookbook, Stirring Up Fun With Food. "For me, it's about taking away the intimidation factor," Gellar said during an interview with ET. "This is for people who -- even from novice to expert, it's just creative ways to get your creative juices flowing." Organized by season and occasion, the book offers fun "food crafting" projects for kids to get involved with, allowing them to develop self-confidence and think creatively. "I think, for my kids, it's been great to see having an idea, starting from scratch, and actually making it into something tangible," the mother-of-two said. "It's a really proud moment."
There's no stopping the Fast and Furious franchise! With its eighth installment, we can expect the trademark insane action sequences, The Rock vs. Vin Diesel and a steamy scene with Charlize Theron. Universal Pictures released a new trailer for the series earlier this month, featuring the entire cast and teasing Dominic Toretto's (Diesel) relationship with Cipher (Theron). While the highly anticipated film is getting the hype it deserves, the cast recalled some of their favorite memories from the set with late friend and former co-star, Paul Walker, who died in a tragic car crash in November 2013. "I love Vin, I love Michelle [Rodriguez] ... but my friendship with Paul was definitely the highlight because he was the best guy," explained Jordana Brewster, who played Mia Toretto. "So, the bond I had with him was definitely the best part."
