“GMA” Gets New Extra Hour

“GMA” Gets New Extra Hour

ABC has canceled “The Chew” after seven seasons.  The daytime food show saw a big drop in ratings since host Mario Batali was fired for alleged sexual harassment.  “Good Morning America” will add a third hour to take its place.

Arie and Lauren have set a date!  The “Bachelor” couple will walk down the aisle in a private ceremony January 12th – NOT on TV.  They plan to have 100 guests in Maui, Hawaii.

Emmy winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus is being honored with the annual Mark Twain Prize for American Humor.  The star of “Seinfeld,” “New Adventures of Old Christine,” and “Veep” will be the 20th recipient of the prize from the Kennedy Center.

Ariana Grande is speaking out after some internet trolls suggested that she’s the reason why her ex-boyfriend, Mac Miller, crashed his car while driving under the influence.  She said, “How absurd that you minimize female self-respect and self-worth by saying someone should stay in a toxic relationship…I am not a babysitter or a mother and no woman should feel that they need to be.  I have cared for him and tried to support his sobriey & prayed for his balance for years (and always will of course) but shaming/blaming women for a man’s inability to keep his s*** together is a very major problem.  Let’s please stop doing that.  Of course I didn’t share about how hard or scary it was while it was happening but it was.  I will continue to pray from the bottom of my heart that he figures it all out and that any other woman in this position does as well.”
