Well here's something I didn't see coming — while the industry is buzzing with rumors about who may take Simon Cowell's place on American Idol, Ellen DeGeneres has bowed out of judging duties after only one season. She released the following statement:
"I told them I wouldn’t leave them in a bind and that I would hold off on doing anything until they were able to figure out where they wanted to take the panel next. It was a difficult decision to make, but my work schedule became more than I bargained for. I also realized this season that while I love discovering, supporting and nurturing young talent, it was hard for me to judge people and sometimes hurt their feelings. I loved the experience working on Idol and I am very grateful for the year I had, I am a huge fan of the show and will continue to be."
I have to admit that I didn't think Ellen brought a ton to the judges table, but with her five-year contract, I didn't expect to see her drop out. Not to mention that she doesn't exactly seem like the quitting type, though it might be beneficial for the show to go back to three judges. Are you surprised to hear this news?
Have fun guessing!
Michael C. Hall was hard at work on the LA set of Dexter yesterday with a very cute costar. Today, the Emmy-nominated actor took a break from filming to join a panel discussion at the TCA about the show's soon-to-debut fifth season. Afterward, we sat down with MCH to talk about last year's shocking finale and all the intense cliffhangers still to come. He revealed that Dexter will definitely wrestle with a new emotion for him, guilt, over Rita's death and that the cast's new addition, Julia Stiles, won't play a "traditional" love interest to the now-single serial killer. When we pressed him for more on the relationship, he didn't want to give away too much. Stay tuned for tomorrow's PopSugar Rush for our interview with Dexter himself and some new hints about what's to come!
Mark Wahlberg was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today after more than 20 years in the entertainment industry. His The Other Guys costar Will Ferrell spoke at the ceremony after the two spent last weekend at Comic-Con, where Mark tested his hand at hosting PopSugarTV. Mark's wife, Rhea, and their kids Ella, Michael, and Brendan joined in for a photo op in front of the shiny new plaque, and it was also the debut of their newest member, 5-month-old baby Grace. The recognition is well-deserved as Mark's impressive career includes music, modeling, movies, and producing with his latest blockbuster film coming out on Aug. 6. Plus, this weekend is his one-year wedding anniversary with Rhea; congrats two times over to the Wahlberg family!

On if she had read the book before shooting:
Julia Roberts: I had read it before it became so widely popular, and I thought it was so terrific 30 pages into it, that I went on Amazon.com and sent one to my best friend in Chicago, and said, "Let's read this."
On her own love advice to young women:
JR: Talk to your mother. Get your mother to tell you what she really knows, and don't take advice from actors. We don't know anything.
On her many outfits in the film:
JR: I think the most costume changes I've had in a movie is maybe 40 or 50. I think that's maybe average. This, by the time I think we were done, was maybe 103. [Michael Dennison] worked tirelessly over making it really authentic and making it great . . . It was like wardrobe Olympics, this movie.
