Jimmy Kimmel just inked a two-year contract extension. He will remain at ABC at least through 2017. Over the past 4 years, Kimmel has increased his viewership. Kimmel has enormous value on social media. He creates viral videos on a regular basis.



Justin Timberlake revealed that Michael Jackson pushed him to take a shot as a solo artist. Justin says he actually hoped to get Jackson to cover "Gone," which he'd written for 'N Sync. In an interview with Oprah Winfrey for Oprah's Master Class, Justin says, "Michael did hear it, and called me on the phone and said that he wanted to cut the record, but he wanted it to be a duet between himself and I. And I said, 'Well, it's already out, we've already cut the song as an 'N Sync record. Could we do, like, an 'N Sync featuring Michael Jackson, or Michael Jackson featuring 'N Sync?' And he was very absolute about the fact that he wanted it to be just a duet between himself and I." Justin's interview on Oprah's Master Class airs on Sunday on OWN.


Kim Kardashian wants a big family and revealed in a recent interview that she wants to expand her family. “Being a mom is amazing. But pregnancy was not a good experience for me. I had medical problems. But North is worth it, she changes all the time. One day she’ll look like Kanye, the next like me. She is very calm and quiet. I want about six children.”

Miley Cyrus declared that she’s the “poster child for good health” yesterday, shortly before getting on stage at the O2 Arena for her first show since last month’s extended hospitalization. At a
London press conference, Cyrus slammed tabloid rumors that she’d overdosed. Miley explained “I took some lousy antibiotics that a doctor gave me for a sinus infection, and I had a reaction.” She said ”I’ve been laying down for 3 weeks. I’m gonna go off — I’m like a star waiting to explode.” Miley credits vitamins, yoga and honey with healing her when conventional medications weren’t working.


"Modern Family’s" Ariel Winter will keep living with her adult sister after an agreement was reached this week just before a trial was set to begin on who would care for the 16-year-old actress. Winter's mother, Chrisoula Workman, agreed to drop the case if her daughter could watch a video montage of family photos in court. The judge agreed, and Winter sat in court and cried as photos of her childhood played. Judge Daniel Murphy said it would be up to her to decide whether she would visit with her mother.

The posh 14,300 square-foot pad includes five bedrooms, nine bathrooms and sits on four prime acres in a ritzy west
Los Angeles neighborhood.
