Kevin Winter/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Goldie Hawn has been with Kurt Russell for more than three decades, but the two have famously never tied the knot. That's because, says Hawn, the relationship itself is more important than taking vows.

"A lasting relationship isn’t about marriage," she tells Porter magazine. "It’s about compatibility and communication. And you both need to want it to work. If one person does not want it to work, it isn’t going to work."

"Intention is the key," she continues. "It’s also about not losing yourself in each other. Being together, two pillars holding up the house and the roof, and being different, not having to agree on everything, learning how to deal with not agreeing. Everything’s a choice."

The actress and producer said what she and Russell care about is a healthy family unit, including her children with Kurt and those from previous relationships -- Kate Hudson, Oliver Hudson and Wyatt Russell. Kurt also has a son, Boston, from a relationship before Hawn.

"We talked about relationships and commonality early on," says Hawn.  "We had nannies, there’s no doubt about it. We’ve both been working. But we were very present with our children. It’s the same way we grew up. I had a working mother, Kurt did not. My mother was right there."

Hawn was a sex symbol in the 60s and 70s and still stuns on the red carpet, even though she's heading into her 70's.  She tells Porter, "Getting older is a fact of life."

"By living mindfully you understand that there are many transitions in life. You just go through them," she says.  "But it’s wonderful to know you’re aging, because that means you’re still on the planet, right? It’s all about how you make it. It’s all in your mind."

Foot Network(LOS ANGELES) -- When celebrity chef Bobby Flay received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Tuesday, he had an unexpected visitor.

Just as he took the stage to deliver his remarks, an airplane towing a banner that read "Cheater" flew in the sky above the Food Network star. The plane and banner reportedly circled overhead until Flay finished speaking.

Flay is in the midst of a nasty divorce from former Law & Order: Special Victims Unit actress Stephanie March. The two were married for 10 years and separated earlier this year.

According to the New York Post's Page Six, Flay cheated for three years on March with Elyse Tirrell, who was a hostess at Flay’s Bar Americain in 2008 and later became the chef's assistant.

A rep for Flay told the Post, "This specific allegation was in a letter sent from one attorney in this case to the other...then leaked specifically to try to insert this story into the press."

E! News also reports a rep for Flay sent them a statement about the cheating allegation, which said: "We will continue to refrain from responding to the continued efforts by certain parties to spread rumors and innuendo...Even more unfortunate is that all of this is being done in order to renegotiate a pre-nuptial agreement that was agreed to over a decade ago and never amended during the marriage."

This was Flay's third marriage and the first for March. The couple does not have any children together, though Flay has a daughter from his second marriage.

BET(NEW YORK) -- The clock has finally wound down on BET's football dramedy The Game, which begins airing its ninth and final season Wednesday night.

"We had an amazing ride," Wendy Raquel Robinson, who stars as Tasha Mack on the series, tells ABC Radio. "It's kind of unreal that it's coming to an end."

The cast, which also includes Hosea Chanchez, Coby Bell, Brandy Norwood, Jay Ellis and Lauren London, have already wrapped production on the series, Robinson says.

"I feel like it's so iconic. And I feel like I'm leaving behind a legacy that I'm so proud of," she says of the series. "And I'm proud of the work we've done and I'm proud of the evolution of the show. It's bittersweet. It really is. It's bittersweet, but I think it's time that we go out on top."

The Game creator Mara Brock Akil tells ABC Radio she's also glad the series is ending properly, compared to her other defunct show, Girlfriends, which ended abruptly in 2008.

"It's a blessing to be able to say goodbye," she says. "You create shows knowing that they're not gonna last forever. It's always bittersweet to say goodbye, but compared to my experience on Girlfriends to know that you're going to end it [is good] so you can enjoy the rest of [it] and sometimes you're gonna cry through the process."

So what can fans expect from Wednesday night's season opener?  Robinson says of her character, "Tasha Mack I wouldn't say is stuck in a love triangle. I think she's trying to smooth it out into a rectangle. The four people being Rick Fox, Pookie, my baby Kai and myself. She's come to grips that either she's going to be a single mom, or she's gonna end up with someone and it'll be a family. I can honestly say she has a fairy-tale ending."

The final season of The Game premieres Wednesday at 10 p.m. Eastern on BET.

Dana Edelson/NBC(LOS ANGELES) -- They say opposites attract, and that's apparently true for comic Sarah Silverman and Masters of Sex actor Michael Sheen, who have been dating for over a year.

On Wednesday's The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Silverman said of her and Sheen, "We like almost none of the same things."

For example, Silverman explained, Sheen loves magic, while she doesn't.

"I like real magic like sunsets or how I can move my hands using only my mind, but I mean, magic isn't real. It’s not real," she said, adding, "I just feel like if you think that magicians are really magic you should maybe not be able to vote."

But it's not their apparent lack of shared interests that may be keeping them from walking down the aisle -- marriage equality is. Silverman confirmed what she's said before: she has no plans to wed until gays can marry everywhere in the U.S. 

And even if that did happen, Silverman says she'd still be hesitant to walk down the aisle. "I don't know that I would want to get the government involved in my love, personally," she said.

Silverman and Sheen have been dating since December 2013.

Annie Leibovitz/Vanity Fair(LOS ANGELES) -- The first teaser for Caitlyn Jenner's new E! reality series, I Am Cait, was released Wednesday.

The series, consisting of eight one-hour episodes, will detail the former Olympian's gender transition.

In the 60-second teaser released Wednesday, Jenner reflects on her new changes as a woman while primping in a mirror, including applying lip gloss.

"So many people go through life and they never deal with their own issues, no matter what the issues are.  Ours happen to be gender identity," she says in the teaser. "But how many people go through life and just waste an entire life because they never deal with themselves to be who they are?"

Jenner adds that she has new issues to worry about as a woman. "You go through all this stuff, and you start learning kind of the pressure that women are under all the time about their appearance," she says. "I never had, until a couple of weeks ago, actually a professional come in and do my makeup. What a difference!"

In the teaser, Jenner is also seen driving out of her Malibu home, in which she's been living for months during the transition. She exclaims, I'm "officially off the property" and "out into the world."

She adds, "Put it this way: I'm the new normal." 

I Am Cait premieres Sunday, July 26 at 9 p.m. Eastern on E! In the U.K., the reality show will premiere August 2 at 9 p.m.

Isabella Vosmikova/NBC(NEW YORK) -- America’s Got Talent returned on Tuesday, with more singers, magicians and dancers.

Tuesday's showcase included a blind dancer, a professional regurgitator and an 87-year-old singing ex-showgirl.

Howie Mandel, Howard Stern, Heidi Klum and Mel B were back behind the judges’ table to offer their opinions and decide which acts would advance. Also back for season 10 was “The Golden Buzzer,” which gives each judge one opportunity to send an act straight to the live show at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

Here’s a rundown of some of Tuesday’s highlights:

Female hip-hop dance troupe DM Nation kicked things off with some precision dance moves that blew away the crowd and the judges. Howie, noting he’d just seen moves he’d never seen before, Heidi called it “perfection.” Mel B gave them her trademark “off the chain.” All four panelists gave them a simultaneous “yes” and the dancers moved on to the next round.

Mentalist Wayne Hoffman, 33, studied psychology and realized he could use his study of the human mind for entertainment. He lined up three giant firecrackers on a table behind him, two were duds and one was live. After bringing Mandel on stage to blindfold him and mix up the explosives, Wayne used Mandel’s body language to ascertain which ones were duds and which were live, holding each lit firecracker in his mouth as he tested his guesses. Howard proclaimed, “That was excellent.” Heidi said she was entertained the entire time, adding that Wayne was a little “cray-cray.” Mel B called it “dangerous” and “brilliant.” All four judges voted “yes” and Hoffman moved on to the next round.  

The Craig Lewis Band from Atlanta sang James Brown’s “It’s a Man’s, Man’s Man’s, World” to thunderous applause. Howie was impressed by the “power” of their voices. Heidi predicted they’d go far in the competition. Praising them for a “great audition,” Howard declared they took a difficult song and “owned it.” Mel B commented that they were “on point, out of the gate” All four judges gave them a “yes” and the duo was off to the next round.

As you might guess, professional regurgitator Stevie Starr swallowed a set of numbered coins and gave them back up in a specific order. With one coin left, Starr swallowed a light bulb -- purportedly to help him bring up the last coin -- then regurgitated the light bulb as well. For his finale, he swallowed a cup of sugar, followed by a cup of water and made both reappear one at a time. Mel B said she would bring her family to see Stevie’s show. Howie noted Starr left them all wanting more. Heidi declared it the best act of the night. Howard echoed the others’ comments, adding that he enjoyed the presentation as well. Starr got four “yeses” and a ticket to the next round.

Blind dancer Benjamin Yonattan, 14, lost his vision two years ago, but continued to pursue his passion. He performed a contemporary dance piece. Mel B called the young artist “unstoppable.” Mandel noted that someone with vision as a handicap, created “a beautiful image for everyone else.” Heidi noted that aside from his disability, Benjamin “has talent” and “deserves to be here.” Howard thought it was a “top- notch performance.” The verdict was a “yes” from all four judges and Yonattan moved on.

Shirley Claire, is an 87-year-old former showgirl. She wowed everyone with her feisty version of Frank Sinatra’s “I’m Gonna Live Till I Die.” Mel B declared Shirley’s personality “filled up the whole room.” Mandel noted the octogenarian was “witty and quick” and so much better than people a quarter of her age. Klum added “funny” and “elegant” to the list of superlatives, adding Claire was “an inspiration.” Shirley received four “yeses,” earning her a place in the next round.

Hostess by day, singer by night, Alicia Michilli knocked out the judges with her powerful rendition of Etta James’ “I’d Rather Go Blind.” Stern noted Michilli channeled her “inner soul singer” and it was “beautiful.” Klum thought the singer sounded “really, really, really, really, really good.” Mel B thought the performance wasn’t “pitch-perfect from start to end,” but could feel Alicia’s soul.” Mandel agreed it wasn’t “perfection,” but still great. Michilli got a thumbs-up from all four judges and another chance at the big prize.

Comic magician Derek Hughes took a while to get to the magic, but when he did, it was impressive and gross. Hughes showed a deck of cards, from which Howard picked the ace of spades. After making the cards disappear, he pulled the deck from the zipper of his pants -- minus Stern's card. The magician then pulled down his pants to show the card stuffed in his butt. Mel B noted Derek was “funny, aggressive, naughty and dirty,” adding, “I like it.” Howie added “amazing” and “unique.” Heidi thought it was “awesome.” Howard declared Hughes “unforgettable.” The magician earned four “yeses” advancing him to the next round.

The final act of the evening, Freckled Sky was a pair of dancers who mixed dance, lighting and water to produce a breathtaking routine that drew a standing ovation from the crowd and three of the judges. Howard called it “spectacular.” None of the other judges needed to comment, because Stern pressed his golden buzzer, guaranteeing them a trip to the live shows.

Some acts that didn’t make the cut included Ronnie the Dancer who entertained the judges, but unfortunately got buzzed by three out of the four judges. Youngblood, a 24-year-old busboy, drank milk through his nose and squirted it out of his eyes. The judges were impressed and nauseated at the same time.

America’s Got Talent airs again next Tuesday at 8 p.m. Eastern time on NBC.

Timothy White/E!(NEW YORK) -- Kim Kardashian has had enough of the rumors about her and her pregnancy. The reality star ranted about her frustration on Twitter Tuesday.

Seemingly out of nowhere, Kanye West's wife began, "So f***ing sick today on all levels!!!!! UGHHHHHHHHH I can't deal!!!!!!!!!! Praying I get through the day!"

"Can't wait til my website is active! I'm gonna do live video streaming so every time someone talks s**t I can go blast the f**k outta them," she tweeted, before adding, "Pregnant KiKi does not play!!!! *BLOOP!*"

Kim revealed Sunday that she was expecting her second child with Kanye. The couple, who wed in 2014, are already parents to 1-year-old North.

When asked by one of her 32 million Twitter followers why she was even addressing the negativity, Kim replied: "I just mean rumors or lies. People make up so much even people close who u think are legit. Truth time."

And when one fan suggested that Kim was mad at Wendy Williams for reporting that the reality star was using a surrogate during her second pregnancy, Kim replied: "Please! This is the type of stuff I will address. If I got a surrogate I would say I did! Thankfully I didn't have 2."

Perhaps Kim is in better spirits after venting. She tweeted, "Hahahaha Twitter just contacted me to see if I've been hacked LOL #JustPregnantKeeks."

Noel Vasquez/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Bob Saget is excited for Fuller House, Netflix's upcoming update of his sitcom Full House. It was announced last week that he was on board, but he admits to being surprised the show is making a comeback. 

"I was on it and I didn't expect this," he told ABC Radio at Monday's premiere of Entourage, in which he also appears.

"I just know...there was a lot of love within the show," the comic says, "And it was made for families to sit down and watch it together. It's amazing that it's doing what it's doing."

Candace Cameron-Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber are also signed on to the show, which is slated for a 2016 debut. Bure's character will reportedly be a widowed mother of three, who has her sister Stephanie and friend Kimmy -- played by Sweetin and Barber, respectively -- move in to help.

Original series stars Lori Loughlin, Dave Coulier and John Stamos will also appear, but two of the show’s biggest stars, twins Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, have declined to participate.

Warner Bros.Entourage is one of those shows you either loved or hated.  Count me as one of the people who loved the HBO series, though my interest waned over time. And like many others, I really didn’t think an Entourage movie would work. I was absolutely wrong.

Vince (Adrian Grenier) has just annulled his very brief marriage, so when we first see him and his friends, they’re partying on what looks to be a 100-million-dollar yacht off the coast of Ibiza with mostly women, many of whom are topless, and only a handful of guys.  It’s not long before Vince is on the phone with his former agent, Ari (Jeremy Piven), who’s now the head of a studio and wants Vinny to star in the very first movie he makes. Vinny’s willing, as long as he directs the movie.

Cue Jane’s Addiction! (The band’s “Superhero” is the Entourage theme song.  In case you were wondering.)

Cut to Vinny and his entourage as the subject of a piece by Piers Morgan, who has one of the many cameos in the movie. It’s clever and amusing, but not hilarious. Don’t worry, though: the hilarious is coming.  The Piers Morgan piece serves as creative exposition and a nice set-up for the rest of the action. See, Vince’s movie is running way over budget and when they ask Ari, for the third time, for more money, Ari is forced to go to Texas to see the movie’s financier, Larsen McCredle  (Billy Bob Thornton) and beg for more cash. This time, McCredle isn’t just going to write another check. Instead, he dispatches his son, Travis (Haley Joel Osment), a spoiled egomaniac, to LA to decide whether or not the movie is worth the investment.

In the meantime, E, or Eric (Kevin Connolly) is no longer with Sloan (Emmanuelle Chriqui).  But she is nine months pregnant with his child, so they attend Lamaze classes together while Eric, uncharacteristically, is sleeping with other women.

As for the rest of the entourage, Turtle (Jerry Ferrara) is now in great shape and reaping the rewards of a well-executed business venture, while Johnny Drama (Kevin Dillon) is hoping his role in Vinny’s movie will change his life.

I’ll leave the story there.  This isn’t a knock on the series but it turns out Entourage the movie may also be the best episode of Entourage, the TV show.  It’s hard to prepare anybody for the dizzying number of celebrity cameos packed into this movie, just about every one of which is great.  You are going to laugh, a lot.

Four out of five stars.

ABC/Rick Rowell(LOS ANGELES) -- On Monday's episode of The Bachelorette, one of the suitors, Clint, professed his love for another man in the house, J.J.

Viewers were confused as to what was going on with them, though, as was host Chris Harrison. Still, the show alluding to a romance wasn't out of line.

"It's not just a simple bromance. I don't know what it is, but I don't think it's that big of a stretch the way they were talking and acting," he told TV Guide. "I'm still not even sure what to make of it."

Clint, who last week enjoyed a one-on-one date with Kaitlyn Bristowe, was more distant this week, and said that he was pretty sure that she's not the right woman for him. However, he was determined to get a rose from her, so that he could continue getting to know J.J.

"It’s absolutely insane. I never thought that I’d meet somebody like that," he said. "Falling in love with a man never crossed my mind."

Clint, an architectural engineer from Chicago, and J.J., a former investment banker and the father of a little girl, never cleared up whether theirs was a romantic or platonic relationship. However, they're still in touch, and have been communicating on social media for weeks. Most recently, Clint compared himself and J.J. to Batman villains, and opened up a bit about his mother's reaction to Monday's episode.

"Dedicated to my sweet and loving mother, who will now live out the remainder of her years in an insane asylum after last night's episode of #thebachelorette," he wrote.

According to Harrison, however, the Clint-J.J. union is not without drama. "You'll see a lot more. There's a massive betrayal [that has to do with] the Clint-J.J. relationship, the likes of which I don't know if we've seen in a long time," he said. "It's very explosive and I don't find Clint as much of the bad guy in the house that J.J. seems to be."

Mary Ellen Matthews/NBC(NEW YORK) -- Mindy Kaling and her ex-turned-friend B.J. Novak are about to release a book together after the two signed a deal with Penguin Random House.

According to E! News, the two Office co-stars are working on a comedy book. There's no word yet on when the book will be released.

Still, Kaling did tweet about the project. "Thanks for asking about the book @bjnovak & I are working on! It's not a tell-all, sadly. I can say it's going to be really funny and cool," she said.

"I swear I'm not trying to be mysterious! We are just starting work on it," she added. "Here's a cool pic of us brainstorming ideas."

The photo was of two cartoon frogs sitting at a table eating cookies.

Kaling knows that it's unusual that she's remained very friendly with her ex. 

"I will freely admit: My relationship with B.J. Novak is weird as hell," she said in the June issue of InStyle magazine. "He is not my boyfriend, but he is not my best friend. I guess you could describe our relationship as a ‘romantically charged camaraderie with loud arguments,’ but I don’t think Facebook would accept this as a new status."

Mark Davis/NBC(NEW YORK) -- After Caitlyn Jenner's first image hit the Internet Monday, people on social media started comparing the look of the person formerly known as Bruce Jenner to actress Jessica Lange. In fact, Lange was trending on Twitter Monday. 

So during an interview with The Daily Beast, the Oscar-winner addressed the issue. Her first reaction when told she was "trending" was, "What does that mean?"

She laughed and reportedly said, "You have to explain what that means to me. ...I don’t do any of this stuff, the Internet. So I have no clue when people use this terminology. I have to repeat it to understand."

After The Daily Beast explained it to her, Lange said of Jenner's photo on the cover of Vanity Fair, "That’s so wonderful. Well now, I’m going to have to look for that picture."

"That’s an interesting bit of information," she added.

The Daily Beast was clear that this wasn't an official statement from the American Horror Story star, just the back-and-forth that happened when they told her about Jenner.

Warner Bros.(LOS ANGELES) -- Some lucky moviegoers who were at a supposed advanced screening of Magic Mike XXL recently got a shocking surprise.

Although they thought they were giving their opinions to a marketing executive about the first Magic Mike film, released in 2012, they didn't realize until later that the "executive" was in fact Magic Mike star Channing Tatum.

The actor dressed in a disguise -- wearing prosthetics, make-up, eyeglasses and a grey suit -- to chat with fans one-on-one. He also affected a mild southern accent.

In a video released by Omaze that details the prank, Tatum is seen asking one fan, "You saw the first [movie]?"

"I did...parts of it," the fan replies, laughing.

To which Tatum, as Scott the marketing exec, quips: "You just fast-forwarded right to the dance parts." 

At one point, tatum asks who was the best actor in the original film. "Matthew McConaughey," the fan replies.

Tatum also asks which parts of the film the fans would most like to see in 3-D.  "The parts where there's pelvic thrusting," one young woman declares.

Tatum finally revealed his true identity when the Magic Mike XXL screening started. After male strippers popped up in the theater, which was supposed to be a 3-D screening of Magic Mike XXL, Tatum -- still in disguise -- began dancing, even twerking on one fan. He then removed his disguise, much to the fans' surprised delight, and threw roses into the crowd. 

Magic Mike XXL, starring Tatum, Matt Bomer and Joe Manganiello, hits theaters July 1. You could even join Tatum at the film's red carpet premiere by entering to win at Omaze.com.
