Naturally beautiful. She's feisty!" Vergara split from fiancé Nick Loeb in May. His True Blood character, Alcide died in a shocking scene in Sunday's episode. They first met in May at the White House Correspondents' Dinner. 

 

Yesterday morning Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy commented on the fact they are leaving The View. Jenny and Sherri would not be renewing their contracts. Jenny explained she will be working on a new show but Sherri was overcome with emotion, especially when she started talking about her fellow costars. Sherri explained “I didn’t discuss anything publicly, anything in my personal life, because I didn’t want to do anything to distract from Barbara Walters and our celebration of her retirement in May." Watch the good bye here!

Mila Kunis revealed to W magazine about her relationship with her fiancé and former That ’70s Show co-star, Ashton Kutcher. Kunis said “My first real kiss ever was with him on the show. Not only did the show introduce me to my fiancé, but I’m so grateful that all my mistakes are recorded for posterity. I went through puberty on television … through everything embarrassing that a girl can go through in front of my fiancé. There’s no question that he’s seen the worst. I find that comforting.” Kunis and Kutcher got engaged in February, and announced Kunis’ pregnancy in May.

After months of speculation, Naya Rivera has been fired from Glee. Naya has just learned that she’s been fired from the show. She knew this day would eventually come. Naya and Glee star Lea Michele have been at odds for months, and Lea is not going anywhere. Creator Ryan Murphy has made it perfectly clear that this final season centers around Rachel. So that makes Naya the odd woman out. She was written out of the final episodes last season and will probably appear in very few of Glee’s final season.
