Alex Martinez/Bravo(NEW YORK) -- Real Housewives of Atlanta viewers were shocked Sunday night when Kenya Moore appeared to believe Apollo Nida, who claimed that his estranged wife Phaedra Parks was cheating on him as he was turning himself into prison. Nida revealed text messages, claiming that they proved infidelity occurred.
Many thought Moore wouldn't believe Nida, who has also lied in the past, claiming Moore tried to have sex with him in Los Angeles.
"When he accused me of seeing him in L.A., it was just an accusation. He didn't have a text message, a photo, he didn't have anything. It was just something he said," she tells ABC News Radio. "So when he said this about Phaedra, he had proof. And the proof was in the text messages."
Moore continues that although Nida has proven he's a liar, Parks has also.
"Apollo exonerated her from any involvement in his criminal activity? Was that a lie?" Moore questions.
Last year, Nida was sent to prison for eight years on fraud charges.
"Phaedra has proven to be a liar," Moore continues. "She has lied about her pregnancy, she has lied...that she didn't use that kind of language when she said that Cynthia [Bailey] wasn't invited to her baby shower, and she also lied when she said that she had seen the text message of me propositioning Apollo. That was a bold-faced lie."
Indeed, in season three many of the housewives questioned why Parks lied about when she had gotten pregnant with her first child, Ayden. Many of the housewives believed it was because she had conceived the baby boy before marrying Nida, which would be against her religion. Also, Parks was caught in a lie when she claimed she invited Bailey to Ayden's baby shower. RHOA cameras caught her saying, she doesn't "give a f*** if Cynthia" attended. Parks said Cynthia was lying because she never uses curse words, as a Christian woman.
Real Housewives of Atlanta returns to Bravo on Sunday night at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
Peter Kramer/NBC(NEW YORK) -- Kim Kardashian loves taking selfies so much, she's even publish Selfish, a book of her best snaps. As for criticism that it's just more evidence of her own self-obsession, Kardashian says it's not so.
"I live my life on a reality show. But sometimes people take it very seriously, or they think it's ridiculous," Kardashian tells Adweek. "I'm kind of letting them know, yes, it is ridiculous, but it's all fun. I can look at a photo on social media and see a picture and know exactly where I was by the outfit I had on or who I was with. I take it more as a fun, emotional
"[I took] my first selfie in 1984 and that opens up the book," Kardashian explains. "For a decade, I've carried a big digital camera, and I think it's just fascinating to see the process of what types of photos evolve. Mine started off on digital cameras, then they went to a BlackBerry and then a smartphone. There's just such an evolution of the selfie. And I captured that, I think, really well."
The reality star said ultimately, it's all in good fun.
"You have to have a sense of humor every once in a while," she said. "So many people think that taking so many selfies is just ridiculous. For me, what's so funny is I love taking pictures and posting them on social media for memories. I genuinely love the glam of life and hair and makeup and all of that, so I love just sharing my life with people -- that's who I've been."
Jason Merritt/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- The leaked photo of supermodel Cindy Crawford that showed the model in a less-than-flattering light appears to have been faked, according to the photographer who took the picture during a magazine photo shoot.
John Russo, the celebrity photographer who took the shots for the December 2013 cover and spread in Marie Claire Mexico magazine, said in a statement to ABC News that the image was “stolen or unlawfully accessed and then altered and distributed to the media."
"It has been falsely claimed that this photograph represents an un-retouched image of Cindy Crawford. This is not true," Russo's statement said. "It is a fraudulent altered version of my photograph. I am grateful that this fact has been brought to the public's attention and that corrections are being run in the media."
The purportedly un-retouched image, allegedly from the shoot, was hailed by women around the world as empowering when it was posted on Twitter last month by British journalist Charlene White. The tweet has since been removed.
The image showed Crawford clad in a bra and panties. Her bared stomach was no longer flat and her thighs weren’t as toned as they used to be.
Photos that were published in the magazine showed Crawford’s stomach covered up, and a video from the shoot only showed her from the chest up.
Crawford spoke about her changing body during a 2012 interview with The Huffington Post, saying, "I'm happy with my body but it's not my old body."
Now 49, Crawford has remained silent since the photo was leaked.
Neither the magazine nor Crawford have responded to Russo’s claim that the leaked photo was doctored, but some pointed to another picture to say the claims have merit. Just days after the story of the unflattering photo broke, Crawford’s husband, Rande Gerber, posted an image of his bikini-clad wife on Instagram. That image showed Crawford looking far more slender and toned.
In a blog post written at the time the purportedly un-retouched photo of Crawford was made public, Marie Claire America said the image revealed “a body that defies expectations -- it is real, it is honest, and it is gorgeous.”
Amanda Edwards/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- One day after publicly saying he couldn't make his dear friend Leonard Nimoy's funeral because he was "doing charity work" for the Red Cross, William Shatner fired back at critics who had blasted him because of his absence.
On Sunday morning, he started on Twitter by citing a report calling Shatner a derogatory name because he missed Nimoy's funeral.
"Let's discuss it," Shatner, 83, wrote. "So my daughters Melanie and Lisabeth are attending Leonard's services. I chose to honor a commitment I made months ago to appear at a charitable fundraiser. A lot of money was raised. So here I am; tell me off."
He then took questions from fans and reporters and responded.
"Walking out on a major fundraiser wouldn't have you calling me a jerk for leaving a charity high & dry? Hmm?" he wrote after someone questioned why he just didn't leave the fundraiser.
He also wrote, "One of the other misconceptions seems to be that folks think flights to LAX occur all night long" and joked about the costs of a private jet from Florida, where he was with the Red Cross, to Los Angeles.
"A jet from FL to LA is about $30K," he later wrote.
Shatner then spent some time to remember his "intelligent, insightful, just a precious gem of a" friend, who died Friday at age 83.
The one word he used to describe Nimoy was "love" and that the two were very close after Star Trek ended.
He answered fans on what kind of father he was, saying "the best. He was also an amazing uncle to my daughters."
He closed by writing, "I do want to thank everyone for coming here and sharing their memories and celebrating the life of #LeonardNimoy LLAP! MBB," adding about the critics, "Gang, all haters do is hate."
Douglas Gorenstein/NBC(NEW YORK) -- There's been Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, Kourtney and Kim Take New York, Kourtney and Khloe Take the Hamptons and even Khloe and Lamar. But is a new E! spin-off featuring the youngest of the Kardashian clan, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, heading for TV?
According to Variety, a show featuring the two sisters, and daughters of Kris and Bruce Jenner, is in the works, although there's no word on how soon it would see airtime. Formal negotiations reportedly haven't even started.
The Jenner sisters are on the rise. From releasing a sci-fi novel, Rebels: City of Indra, last year and creating two clothing collections, they also have multiple individual projects. Kendall is the new face of Estee Lauder and is currently walking the runway in Milan Fashion Week. Kylie has her own hair extension line and is reportedly developing an app with her rumored boyfriend, rapper Tyga.
Despite having over 18 million Twitter followers between them, it's still hard to say if the two can carry their own show.
The new show is not part of the reported $100 million deal made by their mother Kris earlier this week that has Keeping Up with the Kardashians on E! for another four years.
E! told Variety that the figure in the deal is "grossly inaccurate," and it's more likely to be around $20 million for three more seasons of the show plus a $75,000 clothing allowance per season for the entire family. The spokesperson also said Rob Kardashian is part of the deal. Kris' son with the late Robert Kardashian, Sr. was glaringly missing in the New York Post's report.
The tenth season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians premieres March 15 on E!
NBC(NEW YORK) -- A skit on Saturday Night Live that parodies a car company ad by having a father see his daughter off to join ISIS has some viewers saying the show crossed the line from edgy to offensive.
The controversial skit, featuring Fifty Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson, begins with a father dropping his daughter off at the start of her big life adventure -- presumably the armed forces.
"OK, just call when you get there," the dad, played by Taran Killam, says to his daughter, played by Johnson.
The setup is a spoof of Toyota's Super Bowl ad, "My Bold Dad," in which an emotional father drops his daughter off at the airport as she joins the armed forces.
But the SNL parody has a twist. Johnson doesn't enter the airport or get on a bus. Instead, a pickup truck full of bearded armed militants arrives to pick her up.
"You be careful," Killam says.
"Dad, it's just ISIS," Johnson responds.
After Johnson climbs into the truck, Killam says, "Take care of her."
"Death to America," one militant, played by Kyle Mooney, responds.
The skit drew immediate criticism on Twitter, with some calling it "unfunny," "vile" and in "horrible taste."
"Is ISIS really a subject of humor?" another user asks.
But others defended the skit, including one who wrote, "So the worst people in the world are off limits for ridicule? Bullies need to be criticized and ridiculed. Otherwise they become a normal part of society."
An NBC spokeswoman said the network wasn't commenting.
Johnson was hosting SNL for the first time. Her famous parents, Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, made a cameo during her opening monologue.
Hulton Archive/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- As The Sound of Music turns 50, it's still just as iconic as ever, decades after Julie Andrews starred as Maria in the 1965 classic.
"What blows my mind is how much it's continued and how much people still value the story," Myles von Trapp Derbyshire, 30, told ABC News. "And the people that I meet, how much it's affected their lives. It's great to be part of a story that's proven itself to be timeless."
Myles is the great-grandson of Maria von Trapp, one of the main, real-life inspirations for the movie, and believes her story "is about being strong and facing adversity head on."
"Here we are 50 years later and people are still interested," he added. "Lady Gaga is performing at the Oscars and it's still relevant.”
In the classic movie, Maria leaves a convent during World War II and falls in love with Captain Georg von Trapp. The family, including the children, leave Austria during the war to escape the Nazis.
The film also focuses on the family's musical gifts and occupation as traveling singers. Maria von Trapp, who died in 1987, was the matriarch of the Trapp Family Singers.
Since The Sound of Music is based on a true story, Myles recalls the times he would visit the actual Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe, Vermont, and how that family landmark came about.
"After they came to the U.S., they were broke, because they had to leave everything behind in Austria," Myles told ABC News. "They decided on Vermont, it reminded them most of Austria with the green mountains and all. They bought a farm and turned that into music camp. That's where my grandmother and grandfather met."
While Myles may not have too many memories of his great-grandmother, his mother, Stephanie, 55, remembers Maria.
"She was my grandmother," she told ABC News. "[We would visit] once a year. We would go for a family trip to the Trapp Family Lodge, which was her house. It was a big deal, because we would get out of school early! And we'd have a ball."
With the von Trapp family being the inspiration for the Oscar-winning film, some elements were exaggerated for dramatic effect.
"The whole relationship with Rolf was added, that did not exist," he said of one of the von Trapp children having a relationship with a young Nazi in the movie. "He's a made-up character. My grandfather was actually the eldest child. So the relationship there with one of the Nazis didn't exist. They didn't climb every mountain, they hopped on a train to Italy when it came to the Nazis pursuing my great-grandfather."
He added, "The house itself [in Austria, which was a mansion in the film] was not this grand, huge thing. They lived very humbly for several years before they left Austria and came to the US. ...The personalities of Georg and Maria are also actually reversed."
“My great-grandfather was very sweet and kind, Maria was apparently very moody," he said, laughing.
Stephanie says Maria “wasn't your snugly grandmother, but she was fun. I'll never forget, she wanted to take us to the local soft serve ice cream place. She was trying to describe how tall the ice cream cone was and she was very excited. She took us in her convertible Volkswagen Karmann Ghia. We got ice cream and I just remember that was awesome.”
What the movie got exactly right was "they did sing, stuff about my great-grandfather Georg and him being a naval captain, and being knighted is all true."
Seeing the Movie for the First Time
Myles von Trapp Derbyshire doesn't remember the first time he saw it but has an amazing memento that he cherishes.
"There's a picture of me sitting on my grandfather's lap watching the movie when I was 4 years old," he said. "You can see Julie Andrews dancing through the mountains and me on his lap."
Stephanie von Trapp Derbyshire remembers, and though she's excited now, at 5 years old, she admits she "didn't get it."
"I remember going to the theater. I remember thinking, 'Why was this so special?' I didn't quite connect the fact that we were von Trapps and the people in the movie were von Trapps. I didn't get that," she said.
Frank Masi/Warner Bros. Entertainment(NEW YORK) -- Will Smith and Margot Robbie stole the title of box office winner this weekend, as their new movie Focus claimed the top spot.

About 5,000 people were expected to take the plunge, raising money for Special Olympics Chicago, breaking the organization's previous record. Last year, the event raised over $1 million. Lady Gaga took part with her fiance, Taylor Kinney.
Chicago native Vince Vaughn also took part in the event, according to ABC's Chicago affiliate WLS-TV.
Photo by John M. Heller/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- William Shatner said Saturday he feels "really awful" that he will not be able to attend the funeral for Leonard Nimoy, his friend and co-star on Star Trek.
Nimoy, who played Mr. Spock to Shatner's Captain Kirk on the long-running TV show and in movies, died Friday at the age of 83.
The actor revealed he was struggling with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in 2014, according to the New York Times. Nimoy had been a smoker, which contributed to the ailment, before he gave up the habit years ago.
Shatner tweeted Saturday that he was unable to get back to California in time for the funeral because he was in Florida doing a benefit for the Red Cross.
I feel really awful. Here I am doing charity work and one of my dearest friends is being buried.
Photo by Lester Cohen/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- Jennifer Lawrence took to Facebook on Friday to deny rumors that she and director David O. Russell had gotten into an argument on the set of their newest movie.
Lawrence is reportedly on the set of Joy, a film that directed by Russell and starring Bradley Cooper and Robert de Niro. The foursome last worked together on Silver Linings Playbook. Rumors circulated earlier this week that, while on the set of the film, Russell and Lawrence got into quite a screaming match.
Lawrence said in a Facebook post that she doesn't use the social media site much, "because I can barely work email." Still, she felt the need to "clear...up" the story, which she calls a "terrible rumor."
"David O. Russell is one of my closest friends and we have an amazing collaborative working relationship," the Hunger Games star wrote. "I adore this man and he does not deserve this tabloid malarkey."
In fact, according to Lawrence, Joy "is going great and I'm having a blast making it."
Photo by Jerritt Clark/Getty Images for Roc Nation(NEW YORK) -- Khloé Kardashian has been working hard to get in shape, and she's seeing results.
The reality TV star discussed her transformation on Instagram, as well as how exercise has changed her life.
"Looking back at pictures of myself I didn't realize at the time how unhealthy my lifestyle actually was. People love to call me the fat one but as weird as it sounds I still don't think I would consider myself fat back then," she wrote. "Definitely overweight and unhealthy, yes. About two years ago I decided to turn to fitness as a form of therapy and as a stress reliever."
It wasn't always that way, but now Kardashian, 30, now hits the gym four to five times a week.
She encouraged her readers to "start slow" with their own regimens so that they don't get discouraged.
"Remember it is all about consistency. There are no quick fixes if you want long-term results," she wrote. "Working out is a huge part of my life now. I genuinely enjoy sweating out my frustrations and living a healthier life. My workouts are not all about vanity. They are about clarity for my mind and soul."
"We all have different journeys in life, make sure your journey is for you and you alone," she concluded. "Remember in the end the turtle won the race. Slow and steady. Dedication and tenacity."
CBS via Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Leonard Nimoy, the actor who made the Star Trek character of Mr. Spock an international pop culture phenomenon, has died. He was 83.
Nimoy's granddaughter confirmed his passing to ABC News.
Nimoy was hospitalized last week after complaining of chest pain, though no information on his condition was released after that. He announced in late January, 2014 that he'd been diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD, a progressive condition that decreases lung efficiency, making it difficult to breathe. "I'm doing OK. Just can't walk distances. Love my life, family, friends and followers," Nimoy later tweeted, followed by "LLAP," shorthand for Mr. Spock's customary benediction, "Live long and prosper."
Born in Boston, MA, to Jewish immigrants from Russia, Nimoy began acting in local theater as a child and was appearing in films and television by age 20. After a two-year stint in the Army, he turned to acting full-time, with roles in classic TV series including Dragnet, Bonanza and Perry Mason, and the sci-fi series The Outer Limits and The Twilight Zone.
In 1966, Nimoy took on the role with which he would be forever identified -- the half-human, half-Vulcan science officer Spock, who served aboard the starship Enterprise on the TV series Star Trek. Though the original series was canceled after three seasons due to poor ratings, it found its audience in syndication, with Spock the show's most recognizable and popular character. In his 1975 autobiography, titled I Am Not Spock, Nimoy explored his mixed feelings about being so closely identified with the character -- initially resentful, but ultimately grateful.
In addition to the original Star Trek series, Nimoy appeared as Spock in two episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation, and played the character in eight Star Trek films, two of which he directed. His most recent appearance as Spock was in 2013's Star Trek Into Darkness. He also occasionally parodied the character, and himself, in voiceovers on shows including The Simpsons and The Big Bang Theory.
After Star Trek ended its initial run, Nimoy co-starred on TV's Mission: Impossible for two years and also hosted the reality show In Search of…, which explored paranormal and mysterious phenomena. His most recent television role was as the ruthless Dr. William Bell on the sci-fi series Fringe. In 2011, he appeared as a disheveled parody of himself, wandering through a supermarket in his bathrobe and ignoring fans, in thevideo for the Bruno Mars hit "The Lazy Song."
In addition to acting, Nimoy was a published poet and an avid lifelong photographer, whose work was exhibited in numerous galleries. He's survived by his wife, actress Susan Bay, two children and several grandchildren.
ABC/Craig Sjodin(LOS ANGELES) -- The pearl dress that Lupita Nyong'o wore to the Oscars was found in a bathroom two days after it was stolen from her hotel room in West Hollywood, police say.
The West Hollywood Sherriff’s Department received a call Friday afternoon from a “media source saying they received an anonymous call that the dress was in a restroom in the second floor of the London Hotel” where the actress was staying, Lt. Michael White said. “Hotel staff searched and found the dress in a bag hidden behind a counter in the bathroom. We believe this is the dress stolen from the hotel.”
There are no suspects, he said, although officials are reviewing surveillance video. A few smaller pearls appear to have fallen off the dress, but it seems to be intact, White added.
“We will maintain custody of the dress until a rep from the company or the victim comes to claim it,” he said. “We have lots of interesting things that happen in West Hollywood, we gave it the same attention we give any other case. It’s just another day in West Hollywood.”
The bathroom, which is being renovated, is accessible by both staff and visitors.
The actress's Calvin Klein Collection gown, made of more than 6,000 pearls and valued at $150,000, was stolen from her room at the London Hotel in West Hollywood Wednesday while she was out.
"This is a terribly unfortunate situation, and we are working with law enforcement on their investigation," a hotel representative previously told ABC News.
Nyong'o, 31, won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar last year and presented at this year's awards, wearing the custom dress that was designed for her by Francisco Costa.
Nyong'o's publicist declined to comment, while a rep for Calvin Klein has not yet responded to requests for comment.
