ABC/Fred Lee(LOS ANGELES) -- Joshua James Corbett, the man accused of stalking actress Sandra Bullock, was arraigned on Wednesday, after his court appearance was pushed back from last month.

Corbett entered a not guilty plea on Wednesday. A pre-trial hearing date was set for June 8.

The 33-year-old Corbett faces charges including first-degree residential burglary, stalking and possession of a machine gun after he allegedly climbed a fence onto Bullock's property and broke into her residence last June. Bullock was home at the time of the incident.

Kylie Jenner Admits to Using Lip Fillers

Photo by: Timothy White/E!(NEW YORK) -- The debate and speculation is over -- Kylie Jenner has finally admitted to using fillers in her lips.

During a cameo for Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Jenner, 17, speaks to the camera in a testimonial and was asked about her "beautiful lips."

"I have temporary lip fillers, it's just an insecurity of mine and it's what I wanted to do," she said.

She continues, "I'm just not ready to talk to reporters about my lips yet because everyone always picks us apart."

She then gives the reporter a vague answer about using different colors.

In another clip, Kylie's sister Khloe Kardashian says, "Kylie decided to plump her lips and I don't think there's anything wrong with that. I think if you've done something though, it is right to cop up to it."

She advises her sister not to talk around it because she'll "look like a liar."

Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson of One Direction Spar in Twitter Feud

Photo by Jeff Kravitz/OneD/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Former One Direction band member Zayn Malik was in a photo with producer Naughty Boy, and his former band mate Louis Tomlinson felt the need to crack a joke.

The picture that Naughty Boy posted on Twitter has a filter that distorts the image, and has a caption, "Replace this," that may or may not allude to Malik leaving the band.



So, Tomlinson wrote, "Remember when you were 12 and you used to think those Mac filters for your pictures were cool haha ! Some people still do HA!"

 

 



To which, Malik, 22, replied, "@Louis_Tomlinson remember when you had a life and stopped making b****y comments about mine ?"

 

 

In the middle of all that, you'll notice that Tomlinson and Naughty Boy got into it, as well.

"@Louis_Tomlinson and some people can't even sing.. but who's complaining when there's auto tune eh," the producer wrote.

Then Tomlinson, 23, wrote, "How does it feel to be riding on the back of someone else's career ?"

Finally, Naughty Boy wrote, "Yeah how does it feel mate? You've been doing that for the last five years... I've got Emeli Sande and Sam smith on my CV."

The squabble comes less than two months after Malik left One Direction.

"My life with One Direction has been more than I could ever have imagined. But, after five years, I feel like it is now the right time for me to leave the band. I have to do what feels right in my heart. I am leaving because I want to be a normal 22-year-old who is able to relax and have some private time out of the spotlight," Malik wrote on Facebook back in March.

Chris Soules Can't Wait to Be 'a Normal Dude Back in Iowa' Again

ABC/Matt Petit(NEW YORK) -- Getting eliminated from Dancing with the Stars wasn't easy on Chris Soules. However, the former Bachelor star admitted that part of him is happy to be done with reality TV for a while.

"There's nothing I want more than just to be a normal dude back in Iowa," he told ABC News after the elimination. "I'm really looking forward to that."

Shortly after the finale of The Bachelor aired a few months ago, the farmer from Arlington, Iowa, immediately began training for DWTS. A life on television, he said, is not what he wants.

"The spotlight isn't something I asked for," he said. "It was an awesome experience and it was more than I could have ever expected, but... there's a lot of upside to going back and getting back to work."

And maybe wedding planning too? Soules is currently engaged to Whitney Bischoff, whom he met on The Bachelor.

Eva Mendes on Why She's Not Celebrating Mother's Day

Monty Brinton/CBS(LOS ANGELES) -- Eva Mendes just gave birth to a daughter, Esmeralda, late last year -- but even so, she will not be celebrating Mother's Day this weekend.

"There is no plan," she told Access Hollywood on Tuesday. "I kind of feel like I haven't quite earned my stripes yet, in a way. She's seven months [old]."

Taking the focus off herself, Mendes, who welcomed her baby with beau Ryan Gosling, said it's all about her mom this year.

"She's had a really hard year. My brother's sick, so it's all about my mom, honoring her. We're all going to go over to her house and bombard her with love," she added.

This isn't the first time Mendes, 41, has said she hasn't earned her mothering street cred yet. Back in March, she told Women's Health she doesn't feel like she can tell other mothers what to do.

"I don't feel like I've really earned the right," she told the magazine. "I want to respect all the moms out there. They're going to be like, 'You know what? You're a few months in. Just shut up.'"

Kendall Jenner Cries While Talking About Bruce Jenner's Transition

Timothy White/E!(NEW YORK) — Kendall Jenner got emotional when her father, Bruce Jenner, revealed to her that he was transgender.

In a trailer released Tuesday to promote the upcoming E! special, Keeping Up with the Kardashians: About Bruce, fans see how Bruce's eldest daughter with his third ex-wife, Kris Jenner, reacted to the news. The model tearfully got up from her seat in search of tissues.

"He's the most amazing person I know. I couldn't ask for a better dad," Kendall says in a confessional. "He taught me how to ride a bike and be the tomboy that I am."

Kendall, 19, also details the 45-minute drives he would make to drop off and pick her up from school.

In a separate trailer, Kim Kardashian, Bruce's stepdaughter, admires his pedicure. "Your feet are actually way more feminine than I ever would've imagined. I am impressed!" she says.

A proud Bruce responds, saying he did it himself. He adds that he even does his own makeup, adding, "I could do your makeup. I could do it all baby!"

About Bruce follows the Olympian's interview with ABC's Diane Sawyer in which he revealed he was transgender.

Keeping Up with the Kardashians: About Bruce, a two-part special, airs May 17 and May 18 at 9 p.m. ET on E!

“Dancing with the Stars” Elimination Recap: Two Stars Get the Boot

ABC(LOS ANGELES) — As reality TV stars, Chris Soules and Robert Herjavec are used to dishing out rejection, but they were eliminated from ABC’s Dancing with the Stars Tuesday, just one week shy of the semifinals.

Soules, the 33-year-old star of ABC’s The Bachelor, and Herjavec, one of the investors on ABC’s Shark Tank, were both voted off the show in a double-elimination, along with their respective partners, Allison Holker and Kym Johnson.

The two TV personalities had struggled during their time on the program. Soules, a farmer from Iowa, has shown steady improvement in recent weeks although his scores have hovered at or near the bottom of the leaderboard.

The judges have commended Herjavec’s dedication throughout the competition -- his smiling turns on the dance floor made it clear the business mogul was enjoying his participation in the show -- even though they’ve said his performances were inconsistent.

Herjavec was the first to learn his fate Tuesday when it was announced midway through the show.

When Erin Andrews, the show’s co-host, brought up the apparently affectionate relationship between Herjavec and Johnson and asked what was next for the couple, the Shark Tank star smiled and, without answering directly, said it was great to have been on the show.

“This show is such an inspiration to so many people. I’m so honored to have been able to do this. It was so much fun, wasn’t it, Kym?” he said, and she agreed, adding that Herjavec “embraced every single dance he’s done.”

But Tom Bergeron, the show’s longtime host, added his own relationship comment, telling Herjavec: “Robert you may not have won the mirror ball trophy but I’m suspecting you won someone’s heart.”

Johnson smiled and appeared surprised, while Herjavec smiled and replied: “Tom, I’m not sure I feel that way about you.”

Soules learned his fate at the end of the show, and he was overcome with emotion when Andrews asked him how he felt. He got choked up and had tears in his eyes.

When Bergeron asked Soules to share what he was feeling, The Bachelor star replied: “It’s been an incredible experience. I’m just thankful to have been a part of it,” he said, his voice full of emotion. Soules said that he’d done something he never thought he’d be able to do. “It’s life changing. I’m forever grateful,” Soules added.

“I love this guy so much, Carson said of Soules. “This has been the most rewarding season.”

Tuesday’s eliminations came as no surprise, unlike last week’s revelation that consistent high scorer Willow Shields was being voted off.

Elimination is based on a combination of judges’ scores and viewers’ votes.

Returning to the show next week for the season’s semifinals are actress Rumer Willis, who earned two perfect scores on Monday’s show; Olympian Nastia Liukin; R5 band member Riker Lynch and U.S. Army veteran Noah Galloway.

Tuesday’s elimination show also featured Carly Rae Jepsen performing her new hit, “I Really Like You,” and Josh Groban singing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”

ABC’s Dancing with the Stars returns next Monday at 8 p.m. Eastern time.

Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed Double Their Honeymoon Fun

Jason LaVeris/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) — Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed kicked off their life together as husband and wife in style.

The Vampire Diaries actor and the Twilight actress jetted off to not one, but two exotic honeymoon destinations, sources tell People magazine.

The couple, who tied the knot in Malibu a week ago, started off by spending a few days in Tulum, Mexico, in an oceanfront suite at the hotel Ana y Jose.

A source tells the magazine that Ian and Nikki "enjoyed the beach and the ocean. They also went on several adventurous outings near their hotel.”

“They seemed to have a great honeymoon," adds the source.

The newlyweds' next stop was Rio de Janeiro, where they enjoyed dinner on Sunday with Somerhalder's Vampire Diaries co-stars, Paul Wesley and Phoebe Tonkin.

As Somerhalder and Reed dined on Brazilian food and red wine, "they were kissing nonstop," an eyewitness tells People, noting, "They looked very happy."

A source close to the couple adds, "They are over the moon to finally be married."

Anna Kendrick Discusses Hollywood's Gender Bias

ABC/Rick Rowell(NEW YORK) — Anna Kendrick is glad there's finally a public discussion on Hollywood's gender bias, and she wants in on it.

“All the films nominated [for a Best Picture Oscar] this year had male leads. Like, every single one," notes the 20-year-old actress in the June issue of Glamour magazine. "So I’m glad that [equality’s] feeling like a bigger issue now."

Kendrick also contends that Hollywood treats men and women differently, especially when it comes to casting movies.

"There’s [a film I’m considering] now where I have to wait for all the male roles to be cast before I can even become a part of the conversation," she tells the magazine. "Part of me gets that. [But] part of me is like, ‘What the f**k? You have to cast for females based on who’s cast as males?’"

"To me, the only explanation is that there are so many f**king talented girls, and from a business standpoint it’s easier to find women to match the men," she continues. "I totally stand by the belief that there are 10 unbelievably talented women for every role.”

When asked if that makes her feel more competitive with other actresses, Kendrick declares, "I don’t think it makes you more competitive. If anything, it bonds you because we’re all dealing with the same problem."

Kendrick reprises her role as Beca Mitchel in Pitch Perfect 2, opening nationwide May 15.
