Guy Ritchie: I don't regret marriage to Madonna

Guy Ritchie and Madonna ended their eight-year marriage in 2008 – and the former Mr. Madge is finally speaking out, spilling about the union to Details.

"I enjoyed my first marriage. It's definitely not something I regret," Ritchie, 43, tells the December/January issue of Details. "The experience was ultimately very positive. I love the kids that came out of it, and I could see no other route to take."

Ritchie has a biological child with Madonna, son Rocco, 11, and an adopted son, David Banda, 6. (Madonna also has daughter Lourdes, 14, from a previous relationship, and adopted daughter Mercy James, also 6, from after her split with Guy.)

Bethenny Frankel talk show a no go?

In June, it looked like reality show vet Bethenny Frankel was poised to host her own talk show, but sources tell the Hollywood Reporter that the effort didn't gain interest from stations.

Frankel, who came to fame on "The Real Housewives of New York City" before moving on to her own Bravo reality franchises, was reportedly gearing up to host a nationally syndicated talk show with help from Ellen DeGeneres. A pilot was reportedly produced by Telepictures, which also works on DeGeneres' talk show, and Frankel herself had mentioned that she had hosting aspirations.

"I want to be on TV in a format where I can have a longer conversation with my fans rather than 140 characters on Twitter,” she'd said in an earlier interview with THR. “It probably will be a talk show.”

Kate Gosselin says she didn't have a face lift

In a blog post for her new job at savings site CouponCabin.com, Gosselin denies that she's had any work done on her face.

"With all of the buzz about me having a face-lift, I will confirm that I have not had one (I am only 36!!!)," she writes.

Kim K: I need to not live in a fairy tale

After the outcome of her fairy tale wedding resulted in a divorce filing - after, say it with us, "just 72 days of marriage" - Kim Kardashian seems to be rethinking some things.

Namely, what it means to find the ideal romance, she tells Glamour magazine in its January issue.

Tori Spelling: At least my breasts looked great

Tori Spelling is looking on the bright side. Although her husband Dean McDermott accidentally tweeted a topless photo of her that will probably live on the Internet forever, at least he picked the right time to do it.

The 38-year-old actress was nursing the family's newest addition, Hattie, two weeks ago when McDermott snapped a photo of the couple's four-year-old son Liam...which also depicted a topless Tori in the background. McDermott sent the photo out to his 80,000 followers before realizing his mistake. Although it's no longer on his Twitter account, it's still on the Web.

"It was a complete accident obviously," McDermott, 45, tells CNN. He and Liam were goofing around, putting stickers of rolling pins and pots and pans on their heads and taking photos. "I took a picture [of Liam] and I sent it and I did not see [that] in the background...."
