Rod Stewart on reuniting with long lost daughter

Baby number eight is on the way for 65-year-old rocker Rod Stewart, but he's only recently begun getting to know his eldest child, whom he had in his teens, he says in an upcoming interview on "The Joy Behar Show."

"The eldest [child] is in her 40s. Although I’m the biological father she was put up for adoption when I was 17 or 18 I think," he explained to Behar. "I was absolutely stone broke...and so she was put up for adoption. Only found out who her [biological] father was about 15 years ago."

Parents Television Council finds GQ 'Glee' shoot 'disturbing'

The Parents Television Council is disturbed by the GQ photo shoot featuring three of the show's stars.

In a statement released on Wednesday, the PTC “denounced the makers of the TV show 'Glee' for a hyper-sexualized GQ photo shoot that will be featured in the November issue.”

President of the PTC Tim Winter found it “disturbing that GQ, which is explicitly written for adult men, is sexualizing the actresses who play high school-aged characters on ‘Glee’ in this way,” and thought “[i]t borders on pedophilia.”

CW developing 'Glee' meets 'Bad Santa' series

Watch your backs, "Glee" gang – looks like you've got some competition. The CW is developing it's own song-and-dance dramedy called "Acting Out," reports Deadline.com.

Rather than being set in a high school, however, the "Acting Out" action will take place at a summer camp and focus on the relationships between the counselors and the camp's young, curmudgeonly new owner. Think Coach Sue in khaki.

The project, which is being described as "'Glee' meets 'Bad Santa,'" is being helmed by writer-director Todd Graff, the man behind the 2009 music-themed Vanessa Hudgens flick "Bandslam" and the upcoming Dolly Parton/Queen Latifah choir comedy "Joyful Noise."

"Acting Out" is set to jazz-hand its way onto the CW's lineup in 2011.

'Teen Mom' couple under investigation

When Amber Portwood was shown becoming violent with the father of her child, Gary Shirley, on an episode of MTV’s “Teen Mom," it sparked plenty of dialogue, including an interview with the on-again, off-again couple taped by MTV.

But now it looks like Amber could be in for more than just an on-camera talk-it-out session with Dr. Drew.

According to Anderson, Indiana Police Department Detective Mitch Carroll, the police were made aware of the alleged incident after the episode in question aired because of emails from viewers. The police paid a visit to the home of the "Teen Mom" on September 29, but Gary and Amber were out of state at the time. The police have since conducted an initial case report and have spoken with the young parents over the phone.
