Nice guy finishes first again on 'Idol'

We have so been here before.

Cute, clean cut all-American guy drives the girls crazy and takes the "American Idol"  championship. That's what happened Wednesday night when Scotty McCreery,  a 17-year-old, deep-voiced, supermarket bagboy from Garner, North Carolina, won Season 10 of  "American Idol."

Ever since he crooned "Baby, lock them doors and turn the lights down low" during his audition in Milwaukee, McCreery consistently had the support of fans and "Idol" judges who praised him every week. FULL POST

The Throwback: 'Wonka' star talks 40th anniversary

Actress Julie Dawn Cole was 12 when she was cast as bratty Golden Ticket winner Veruca Salt in the classic 1971 film "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory."

The movie is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, and Cole has just released a book entitled "I Want it Now!" The scrap book-style memoir features Cole's memories from the set and loads of details that will satisfy even the most die-hard "Wonka" nerd's sweet tooth.

CNN spoke to Cole, who gave us gobs of sweet details about on-set crushes, her dislike of chocolate (say it ain't so!), unlikely "Wonka" fans, saved mementos, and of course - Oompa Loompas!

Kim K. and Snooki face their 'H8R's' in CW clips

The premise behind the CW’s new reality show “H8R” is simple: Take a celebrity’s most passionate “hater,” give them the opportunity to confront said celebrity face-to-face and see what happens.

The show, hosted and executive produced by Mario Lopez, is coming to the CW in the fall, and the network has posted clips of what to expect.

In one of them, diminutive “Jersey Shore” star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi barrels into a bar ready to take on her hater – some guy named Nick who apparently went on a rant about Snooks, calling her a “wannabe Italian” and a “drunken slob.”

Chelsea Handler: Not a fan of '16 & Pregnant'

MTV’s docu-series about teen pregnancy, "Teen Mom" and "16 & Pregnant," are often criticized for glorifying teen pregnancy, and late-night host and author Chelsea Handler is one of the critics.

Handler, who’s known for her no-holds-barred comedy, says that she tries to make fun of everyone of “as often as possible” and believes that “people are too P.C.,” as she tells the New York Times in an interview.

“We need to be focusing on other things. We’re seeking out such grossness in human behavior and want such mindless entertainment,” she goes on. “‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ and some of these other shows are more racist. Or ‘16 and Pregnant.’ Getting rewarded for being pregnant when you’re a teenager? Are you serious? I mean, that makes me want to kill somebody.”
