David McNew/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Lindsay Lohan made a bombshell announcement on Sunday's episode of her reality TV show, revealing that she suffered a miscarriage during filming.

"No one knows this…I had a miscarriage for those two weeks that I took off," Lohan admitted. "It's a very long story."

The 27-year-old didn't offer any details about the pregnancy or miscarriage, but discussed the emotional impact during the season finale of Lindsay on Oprah Winfrey's OWN network.

"There was a lot going on in my life then. I cried so many times watching it, because I don't see it as me...it's strange. It's weird."

Rubin 'Hurricane' Carter, Boxer Portrayed by Denzel Washington in "The Hurricane," Dead at 76


Scott Gries/ImageDirect(TORONTO) -- Rubin "Hurricane" Carter, a boxer who inspired a Bob Dylan song and a movie starring Denzel Washington, has died following a battle with prostate cancer.

Carter's friend, John Artis, says the boxer died in his sleep Sunday morning in Toronto, according to CTV News. He was 76.

Carter spent 19 years in prison on a murder conviction that was overturned after several appeals and a groundswell of support by civil rights groups and celebrities. He was released in 1985.

In 1975, Dylan released a song about Carter's case, titled "Hurricane." Washington portrayed Carter in the 1999 film The Hurricane, earning him an Oscar nomination.

"Dancing with the Stars" Celebrating Party Anthems on Monday Night


ABC/Adam Taylor(LOS ANGELES) -- Dancing with the Stars is throwing a party on Monday night. The show's remaining couples will perform dances to popular party anthems.

Adding to the fun will be Redfoo of the musical duo LMFAO, whose hits include "Party Rock Anthem." He will serve as a guest judge alongside Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba.

Candace Cameron Bure admits she's not too familiar with Redfoo's tunes, though her kids are. The former Full House star tells ABC News Radio, "They're going to say I'm so, like, 'Mom! You're embarrassing us!' I'm totally an old lady sometimes when it comes to certain music."

Cameron Bure's days on Dancing with the Stars may be numbered, according to last week's guest judge, Donny Osmond. She finished second-to-last on the leader board last Monday night.

Osmond says, "[W]hat I saw from her is so promising. She just needs to get her fans rallied and get those votes up."

One couple will be eliminated on Monday night's Dancing with the Stars, which begins at 8 p.m. Eastern time on ABC.

Kardashians Settle Copyright Infringement Lawsuit with Robert Kardashian's Widow


Ethan Miller/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- The Kardashians have settled their copyright infringement lawsuit with Robert Kardashian's widow, Ellen Pearson.

Attorney Even Spiegel tells E! News, "Kris Jenner and Kimberly, Khloé, Kourtney and Robert Kardashian Jr. have settled their lawsuit against Ellen Pearson Kardashian. The diaries and photos have been returned to the Kardashians, and all other terms of the settlement are confidential. Ellen will continue her state court action for defamation."

In 2013, the Kardashian siblings and their mother, Kris Jenner, sued Pearson, claiming she had licensed private material belonging to Robert Kardashian to which they believed they owned the copyright.

They claimed Pearson licensed parts of the attorney's journal, plus private photos of the family, to the publishing company behind the magazines In Touch and Life & Style. The magazines then published articles based on the items in contention.  The Kardashian family argued that the possessions belonged to them.

Robert Kardashian, who served as one of O.J. Simpson's attorneys during his murder trial, died in 2003.

James Franco's Former Manager Sued, Allegedly Stole from Him


Jemal Countess/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- James Franco's former talent and financial managers are accused in a lawsuit of stealing from the actor and James/Levy Management for several years by skimming commissions and using Franco's credit card for personal purchases.

Randy James and Ken Jacobson filed a lawsuit in California Superior Court on Friday, claiming Franco's ex-managers Miles Levy and Steve Blatt "conspired to, and did by fraudulent means, embezzle significant sums in commissions" starting in 2006, reports EW.com.

James and Levy were childhood friends who founded James/Levy Management in 1986.  According to the suit, Levy informed James that Franco was dropping the amount he paid in commission from 15 percent to 10 percent, and then Levy and Blatt diverted that five percent into a fake corporation called Down Goes Frazier, Inc., "formed by Miles and Blatt for the sole purpose of facilitating this theft."

Blatt's financial management firm has filed a countersuit, alleging that James/Levy Management was "rife with internal mismanagement, surreptitious behavior, duplicitousness, and questionable ethical acts."

Franco is not involved in the dispute.

Columbus Short Releases New Music, Say He Feels 'Raw' and 'Vulnerable'


ABC/Kelsey McNeal(LOS ANGELES) -- Scandal actor Columbus Short is battling serious accusations after his wife, Tuere Short, filed for divorce last week and claimed the actor threatened to kill them both. Still, he appears to be pressing forward to promote his upcoming album and its first single, "Gave Ya."

"To be honest with you, I'm feeling raw, focused, vulnerable and in a perfect place to write great music," he told People magazine of his latest venture. "God's been preparing me for a long time to deal with this season of my life. Being able to have thick skin is something that is needed."

Having a tough exterior may be important to Columbus, as he's repeatedly made headlines for allegedly violent episodes. According to TMZ, his wife claims he confronted her at their Los Angeles home on April 7 while intoxicated, choking her and threatening to kill her as part of a murder-suicide. The wife has obtained a restraining order against him.

Last month, Columbus pleaded not guilty in a separate incident to spousal battery, after he allegedly attacked his wife in front of his daughter and his son. Around the same time he entered that plea, he was arrested for allegedly punching another man at a West Los Angeles restaurant.

Columbus said he has blocked out all of his recent negative publicity. "You want to know the truth? I don't read anything. I don't read the good stuff and I don't read the bad stuff, because if I read the good stuff, I've got to read the bad stuff. I don't allow myself to make agreements with nonsense so I just don't take it in," he explained.

"I block it and I make sure my team knows, don't even show me stuff -- because unless it's real, I don't even want to see it. I don't even want to talk about it, because you never know where stuff is coming from and you make an agreement with a lie," Columbus continued.

Columbus plays Harrison Wright on ABC's Scandal.

Rosie, Al, and Other Extreme Celebrity Weight Loss Stories


Rachel Murray/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- Rosie O'Donnell is down nearly 50 pounds.

The comedian and TV personality flaunted her major weight loss in a before-and-after photo of herself posted on Twitter this past Thursday.

"Almost 50 lbs off -- I can see it now," the 52-year-old The View alum wrote.

O'Donnell reportedly underwent weight-loss surgery in July 2013, one year after a heart attack. Before the procedure, O'Donnell reportedly weighed 220 pounds.

But O'Donnell isn't the only one. Here are some other celebrities who lost some serious weight:

Al Roker

It took Al Roker months after he shed 100 pounds in 2002 to go public about his gastric bypass surgery. "In this country, if you have an alcohol problem or a drug problem, you can get treatment," the Today weatherman told USA Today in 2002. "If you have a weight problem, it's lack of willpower."

Carnie Wilson

In 2012, 12 years after documenting her 150-pound weight loss following gastric-bypass surgery, singer Carnie Wilson went under the knife again. This time, she told People magazine, she opted for lap-band surgery. "It was the right decision for me and I'm doing really well so far," the Wilson Phillips singer told the magazine in 2012. "It's all about taking good care of myself." Wilson said that by 2010, she was struggling to keep the weight off, after having two children.

Star Jones

Beginning in 2003, Star Jones, another The View alum, dropped 160 pounds in three years. While the world speculated about how she did it, Jones was evasive, until finally, in 2007, she admitted in a first-person essay in Glamour magazine to undergoing gastric bypass surgery. "The complete truth is, I was scared of what people might think of me. I was afraid to be vulnerable, and ashamed at not being able to get myself under control without this procedure," Jones wrote.

Graham Elliot

MasterChef judge Graham Elliot has been up-front about his struggles with weight and the sleeve gastrectomy he underwent last July after nearly hitting 400 pounds. He told People magazine that the hour-long procedure, where nearly 80% of a patient's stomach is removed to create a small sleeve-shaped stomach the size of a banana, allows him to still taste and try ingredients -- a necessity for a chef. By the end of last year, Elliot had completed his first ever 5K run and had posted a before and after photo on Twitter. "Now weighing in at 268lbs, down from 396lbs. Thanks everyone for the continued support!" he wrote.

Randy Jackson

After being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, American Idol judge and mentor Randy Jackson made the difficult decision to undergo gastric bypass surgery in 2003. "I was having serious issues with becoming a diabetic," Jackson told CBS' The Early Show in 2004 after losing over 100 pounds. "So thinking about how to do it, I tried all kinds of diets, everything under the sun. I was like: I really need to do something to nip this in the bud right now. It worked for me, but I hesitate to recommend it for people because it's like a personal life decision. It's a life choice because you change and alter your complete life when you do this."

Debbie Matenopoulos Reveals She’s Married and Pregnant


Charley Gallay/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Former The View co-host Debbie Matenopoulos, 39, shared a double dose of news with People magazine -- she’s married and pregnant!

Matenopoulos married Jon Falcone, a 36-year-old photographer, in Greece over the summer after two years of dating. The two met through mutual friends in 2012 and have been together since.

“I eloped in Greece and I’m four months pregnant!” she tells People.

She continued: “We had a secret eloping ceremony at a title monastery. I’ll do a proper wedding after I have the baby.”

The TV personality was in Greece working on her new recipe book, It’s All Greek to Me, when she decided to elope. This is Matenopoulos’ second marriage, but her first child.  The baby is due in October, but she isn’t sure she wants to know the baby’s gender just yet.

As for any strange cravings she’s having: “I’m not craving anything per se, but I have become ravenously hungry. I’d wake up in the middle of the night and chug orange juice and I’ve never liked orange juice! I’m a monster.”

On May 15, pregnant Matenopoulos will join all of the present and former co-hosts of The View for Barbara Walter’s special farewell episode.

Is There Drama on the Set of "Glee?"


VALERY HACHE/AFP/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Is there trouble on the set of Glee?

Sources told TMZ that Lea Michele, who plays Rachel Berry on the Fox musical series, is acting like a "diva," causing many of her co-stars to be upset.

Reportedly, co-star Naya Rivera, who plays Santana Lopez, eventually became fed up and brought the issue to producers, telling them many people were upset with Michele.

According to sources close to Rivera, when Michele returned to the set she discovered Rivera complained to producers. That's when Michele stormed off of the set.

Still, sources close to Michele have a different take on events. They say Michele and Rivera weren't even filming scenes together, and Michele didn't even know people were upset with her. The sources, according to TMZ, added that it was actually Rivera who got kicked off the set.

Glee airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on Fox.
