Kelly Clarkson's new album drops October 25

After a long wait, original “American Idol” winner Kelly Clarkson has announced the release date for her fifth album: October 25. The news comes via the singer's newly revamped site, kellyclarkson.com.

Fans have been anxiously awaiting new music from Clarkson, as the album's experienced a series of setbacks. “Stronger” was originally set for a late 2010 release, but was pushed back to early 2011, and then delayed again until fall.

Lead single “Mr. Know It All” will be released at the end of this month, and those who pre-order the album will get the single sent to them upon release. Fans can also watch the singer debut the song via live webcast on August 30.

The Throwback: 'Adventures in Babysitting'

The Throwback: 'Adventures in Babysitting'

On the heels of last week's announcement that a "Dirty Dancing" remake was in the works, buzz is generating about Jonah Hill's upcoming movie, "The Sitter," which many are calling a remake of another 1987 classic, "Adventures in Babysitting."

I'll forgive Roger Ebert for calling "Adventures in Babysitting" "Ferris Bueller's Sister's Night Off," and for giving it a thumbs-down (but Siskel gave it a thumbs-up!). It remains a favorite to this day.

In the film, high school senior Chris Parker (Elisabeth Shue) babysits Brad (Keith Coogan) and Sara Anderson (Maia Brewton), along with Brad's best friend, Darryl Coopersmith (Anthony Rapp). This all happens after Chris' dream date with Mike "SO COOL" Todwell (Bradley Whitford) is canceled.

Bravo not sure when 'Housewives' will return

In the midst of the tragedy of the suicide of  Russell Armstrong from "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," the show's return is now up in the air.

Bravo network executive and reunion show host Andy Cohen blogged on Wednesday that decisions are still being made regarding the reality show, which had highlighted marital problems between Armstrong and his wife Taylor.

"We're all still trying to process yesterday's very sad news, and looking at how to proceed with the series, which has finished primary production and was set to premiere on Labor Day," Cohen wrote. "We'll let you know what we decide when we do. In the meantime, we're sending our thoughts and prayers to Taylor and the rest of Russell's family."

Armstrong's mother told HLN's "Issues with Jane Velez-Mitchell" that prior to his suicide her son was fearful that the upcoming season of the show was set to "crucify" him.

Sorry Christine O’Donnell. ABC has another 'View'

Christine O'Donnell has been making the rounds on various talk shows, chatting about all types of memories.

When she's not walking out on interviews, the Tea Party favorite can be found dishing on her new book "Troublemaker: Let's Do What it Takes to Make America Great Again."

But one of her stories has run afoul of the remembrances of the queen of interviews, Barbara Walters. FULL POST

'Shore' stars fire back at Abercrombie

If Abercrombie & Fitch's announcement that they'd pay Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino - plus other members of the "Jersey Shore" cast - not to rock their brand on air was a PR stunt...well, we guess all publicity is good publicity.

Not only did stock dip 9 percent following the announcement, which the company made on Tuesday, but "Shore" member Paul "DJ Pauly D" DelVecchio tweeted a curious question.

"Hmmm if They Don't Want Us To Wear Those Clothes Why Make GTL Shirts," he asked, along with a photo of the T-shirt in question. (As "Shore"-ians know, "GTL" stands for the cast's infamous catchphrase, "Gym, Tan, Laundry.")
