'Big Brother' host Julie Chen says 'Christine's husband has every right to be upset'

Each week after every eviction, host Julie Chen will answer a few of EW’s burning questions about the latest episode of Big Brother.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: I was positively riveted watching Christine’s husband and family talk about how uncomfortable they were watching her cuddle and flirt with Cody. What do you make of the whole Christine-Cody situation, and does her husband have a right to be upset?
JULIE CHEN: Christine’s husband has every right to be upset. In fact, he wasn’t upset enough. All I know is if I ever did what Christine did then I would be coming home to no husband at all!!! Then again Christine is a free spirit and he knew who he married in the first place.   READ FULL STORY

Full 'Survivor: San Juan del Sur' cast and twists (Exile Island) revealed

Earlier today, Entertainment Weekly exclusively revealed six of the players who would be competing on Survivor: San Juan del Sur — Blood vs. Water. Now the rest of the cast — which is comprised of pairs of loved ones — that will be challenging for the million dollars can be announced as well. In addition to previously disclosed controversial former baseball player John Rocker and his girlfriend Julie McGee, Amazing Race twins Nadiya and Natalie Anderson, and Broadway boyfriends Reed Kelly and Josh Canfield, there will be 12 other contestants.

Originally there were supposed to be 20 contestants total, but one pair was forced to drop out after a medical check-up just days before filming began in Nicaragua. “We lost a pair of women, so the way it works out is there are more men than women,” host Jeff Probst tells us. “That’s just the game. We don’t like it that way but that’s the way it’s going to start.” Among the pairs that will be playing in season 29 are a married cop and a firefighter, Miss Michigan 2013 and her boyfriend, as well as a cheerleading mother and daughter team.

Chris Soules is the new Bachelor

On today’s Good Morning America, Soules was officially announced as the next Bachelor. Although it’s not a surprising pick—most everyone predicted this was a possibility at some point—it is one that took a surprising amount of time to make.

New 'Survivor' cast boasts MLB pitcher John Rocker, Spider-Man actor, and 'Amazing Race' twins

Entertainment Weekly has your first look at six of the contestants that will be competing on the next season of Survivor: San Juan del Sur — Blood vs. Water. Like the previous Blood vs. Water season, San Juan del Sur will bring in pairs instead of single players to compete for the million dollars. The one difference is that this season will feature no returning players. However, there are a few doozies among the cast of newbies.

Controversial former baseball relief pitcher John Rocker will be playing along with his girlfriend, spray-tan business owner Julie McGee. Rocker pitched for the Atlanta Braves in the 1999 World Series against the Yankees. But later that year, Rocker became embroiled in controversy when he was asked in a Sports Illustrated article whether he would ever consider playing in New York and was quoted as saying, “I’d retire first. It’s the most hectic, nerve-racking city. Imagine having to take the 7 train to the ballpark looking like you’re [riding through] Beirut next to some kid with purple hair next to some queer with AIDS right next to some dude who just got out of jail for the fourth time right next to some 20-year-old mom with four kids. It’s depressing… The biggest thing I don’t like about New York are the foreigners. You can walk an entire block in Times Square and not hear anybody speaking English. Asians and Koreans and Vietnamese and Indians and Russians and Spanish people and everything up there. How the hell did they get in this country?” READ FULL STORY

'Big Brother:' Zach talks Zankie and says 'I am completely 100% heterosexual'

Zach Rance wanted to be noticed this summer on Big Brother. That much was clear. Whether he was parading around in that goofy pink hat, starting a showmance with Frankie (even though he says he is straight), or calling other contestants a “fruit loop dingus,” Zach liked to be noticed. Maybe he should have played a little more under the radar because his fellow alliance members had finally had enough and evicted him from the Big Brother house last night. Then, with a chance to reenter the game in a jury competition, he fell short, ending his dream of emerging as the winner. We were unable to chat with Zach because he is back sequestered on the jury, but we were able to sneak a few questions to him via email and here’s what that lunatic had to say. READ FULL STORY

'Big Brother:' Julie Chen on her live ice bucket challenge and the death of Zankie

Each week after every eviction, host Julie Chen will answer a few of EW’s burning questions about the latest episode of Big Brother.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Okay, obviously we need to start with the Ice Bucket Challenge. How nervous were you about doing that on live television and how did it feel when Will Arnett dumped that water on you?
JULIE CHEN: I was sooooo excited to do this on live television. It’s the only way you can’t back out or run away….you must commit. I was adamant that the bucket had to be equal parts ice and water and to be very full. Unfortunately, most of the ice melted by the time the bucket was poured and that made the water temperature beyond cold. I also asked that the bucket really go straight over my head for full effect. It felt great and fun and funny for about the first 3 seconds and then it was like…am I going to catch pneumonia?!?!?  This is NOT fun anymore…it’s freezing and I am shaking. But well worth it for a great cause. READ FULL STORY

WE tv orders reality series 'Sex Box'

Sex-Box

The reality dating show arena just became a bit more crowded: WE tv has ordered nine, one-hour episodes of Sex Box, based on the U.K. show of the same name. In this therapy-based series, couples go into a camera-free, soundproof box to have sex, then emerge postcoitus to discuss their problems with a panel of experts.

“Sex Box is one of the most unique and compelling show concepts we’ve ever seen, and we can’t wait to bring it to WE tv,” said Marc Juris, the network’s president. “Our featured couples will get a once-in-a-lifetime experience, while our viewers will get the kind of bold, break-through-the-clutter programming they increasingly associate with WE tv.”

Sex Box is slated to premiere in the U.S. in early 2015.

Julianne Hough joins 'Dancing With the Stars' as fourth judge

Dancing With the Stars has already announced who the pros will be for season 19, and now there’s another familiar face joining the team. Good Morning America exclusively announced this morning that Julianne Hough will be joining the judges’ panel this upcoming season.

Hough is a two-time DWTS champion herself and has appeared as a guest judge on the show in the past. Now, she will officially add a fourth chair to the judges’ table, sitting alongside returning judges Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba, and Bruno Tonioli.

“I’m so excited to be back with my Dancing with the Stars family again on a regular basis,” Hough said in a press release. “I’ve always aspired to be an all-around entertainer, whether I’m acting, dancing or singing, and I’m thrilled for this opportunity that will allow me to continue all of those pursuits. Derek and I just finished our Move Live on Tour, which reminded me how much I miss the interaction with the dance fans that have been so supportive of me in my career. I am warming up the paddles and the sass, and I’m ready to have fun in this new role.”

Dancing with the Stars premieres Monday, Sept. 15 at 8 p.m. on ABC.

'Big Brother': Watch the Zingbot and Kathy Griffin join forces to insult people


Big Brother
is a ridiculous television program. And at no point is it more ridiculous than when a sassy wisecracking robot named the Zingbot enters the house to start dishing out insults at all the contestants. Which is why we are completely obsessed with everything he does. Now, I’ve had my own personal run-ins with the Zingbot over the years. There was the time he compared Entertainment Weekly to toilet paper and the time he mocked my writing and personal income. But I simply can’t stay mad at the Zingbot. Plus, perhaps he’s mellowed since giving birth to the Baby Zingbot. Anyhoo, the Zingbot extended an olive branch by sending over this exclusive clip of his annual appearance tonight on the CBS reality show. So why wait until this evening to see how his visit begins when you can check it out right here?

BUT WAIT! Something is very, very wrong with the Zingbot. Click on the video below to see what is amiss, and if comedian Kathy Griffin can help this bot get his Ziiiiiiiiiiiing! back. UPDATE: Check out the second video below to watch Donny get zinged by Kathy Griffin! READ FULL STORY

'Big Brother': Nicole reveals her biggest regret and whether she would shave her head to get back in the game

Nicole Franzel, 21-year-old nursing school graduate, was evicted from the Big Brother house last night at the hands of her frenemy Christine, who betrayed her by putting her up on the block after promising that she wouldn’t. Since all the jury members will have a chance to re-enter the game next week, we were not allowed to talk to Nicole after being evicted. But we did manage to email her some questions that she responded to. What is Nicole’s biggest regret? What’s her status with showmance partner Hayden? And how far is she willing to go to back into the game. Read on for answers…

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Did you think Christine would honor your agreement to not backdoor each other as HOH this week?
NICOLE: Yeah, at the beginning I definitely thought I wouldn’t be backdoored. She seemed sincere about it, but I was wrong.

EW: What is your biggest regret about your game play? If you could go back and change one thing, what would it be?
NICOLE: Trusting too many people. I should have kept my mouth shut and I put too much trust into Cody, not knowing he would tell Christine. READ FULL STORY

'Big Brother': Julie Chen says 'I am surprised the women didn't put up more of a fight this year'

Each week after every eviction, host Julie Chen will answer a few of EW’s burning questions about the latest episode of Big Brother.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: What was Nicole’s biggest mistake in this game?
JULIE CHEN: Unfortunately, her biggest mistake was trusting Christine too much and realizing she couldn’t, too late. She was also too honest, but it made her beloved by fans. She got TWO rounds of applause upon her eviction by the live audience, which has never happened this season and the other houseguests inside noticed. Take that! READ FULL STORY

Meet the pros for season 19 of 'Dancing With the Stars'

Dancing With the Stars is a little over a month away from kicking off its 19th season—and earlier today, on Good Morning America, we got our first glimpse at which 12 professional dancers will be twirling ex-actors, current actors, athletes, hosts, and more around that ballroom floor in hopes of eventually taking home the coveted Mirrorball Trophy.

For devoted fans of the show, there’s good and bad news. The bad: Maksim Chmerkovskiy decided against surprising the world and returning to the show. But at least his last routine was his best? READ FULL STORY
