MTV defends 'Teen Mom' show in light of fight video

A video depicting the brawl between "Teen Mom 2" star Jenelle Evans and her former friend Brittany Truett has made the rounds, keeping the debate over MTV's hit reality series alive and well.

Truett, herself a teenage mom, told ABC News in an interview regarding the fistfight that she believes the program has changed Evans. "She used to be a really sweet girl, outgoing, fun to be around," Truett said. "Since she's been on the show, she's got a big head and she's been angry at the world."

ABC News also reports it was revealed in February that three of Evans' teen friends have gotten pregnant, although they deny doing so in order to follow in Evans' increasingly famous footsteps.

Randy Quaid to premiere 'Star Whackers' movie

One month after debuting his song "Star Whackers" at Vancouver's Commodore Ballroom, actor Randy Quaid is set to unveil a movie about the alleged celebrity slayers he believes are out to get him.

On April 22, Randy and his wife Evi will present an unfinished version of their docudrama "Star Whackers" at the Rio Theatre in Vancouver, reports the Globe and Mail. The storyline? Randy—who plays three roles in the film—is targeted by assassins who "plot his demise and hunt him so to appropriate for themselves his value as a movie star," according to a summary.

“This is a work in progress and highly experimental with nudity, adult language and content throughout,” Evi said in a statement. “For the first time I would like an audience reaction to my art as a work in progress, so I may understand its content through other eyes.”

'DWTS' host: Don't have me interview Chris Brown

Chris Brown is set to perform on "Dancing With the Stars" tonight, just one week after his off-camera outburst at "Good Morning America."

As we all know by now, Brown stormily departed the set after anchor Robin Roberts questioned him about his 2009 assault case involving Rihanna, and a window in his dressing room was found smashed.

While some fans aren't happy that the star is appearing on the family friendly show, the show's host, Tom Bergeron, doesn't sound eager to talk to Brown either.

Emma Stone talks boys and Brangelina

She had no problem getting guys in last year's hit comedy "Easy A," but Emma Stone admits her own dating life is a bit more complicated.

“Honestly, I cannot put a finger on it. One guy could do something that I would find deplorable, and [with] another guy I’d find it charming…. It depends on the person," Stone tells the May issue of Glamour.

Jennifer Garner to play Agatha Christie's Miss Marple

Agatha Christie's beloved Miss Marple is ready for her big-screen comeback, and this time around will be played by Jennifer Garner.

Miss Marple—an unassuming old lady who was a master at solving crimes—made her fiction debut in 1927 and first appeared on film in 1961's "Murder, She Said," according to the Hollywood Reporter. Actress Margaret Rutherford was 70 at the time, and would portray the character in a series of mystery movies.

Angela Lansbury put her own twist on Miss Marple in "The Mirror Crack'd" in 1980 — four years before she starred as mystery writer/investigator Jessica Fletcher on the popular TV show "Murder, She Wrote."

Now, former "Alias" star Garner will produce as well as star in the Miss Marple reboot, Deadline reports. This spin on the character's story will be more modern, with Garner playing a younger version of the detective.
