An emotional night on 'DWTS'

Monday's "Dancing with the Stars" was all about the most memorable years of the contestants' lives. As was the case last fall, the tissues were plentiful as the tears were flowing like wine.

The first celebrity up was Jack Wagner, who performed a samba in honor of last year, when he learned he had a daughter he'd never met until she showed up at one of his concerts. The dance was performed to a Wagner tune that wasn't "All I Need," shocking many who didn't realize that he had a repertoire of more than one song.

As far as the dance itself, Jack looked better than last week, appearing more in sync with partner Anna Trebunskaya and demonstrating that he can hold off on the "over dancing" that hurt him before.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Paramount studios has been trying to revamp the script for the hit movie for the past six years, but it’s repeatedly gotten stuck in development.

Mary J. Blige sings about chicken for Burger King

R&B superstar Mary J. Blige might rue the day she agreed to sing about Burger King's “crispy chicken” snack wrap with “three cheeses.”

That’s because her new commercial for the fast-food chain, which is revamping its menu, has been met with some backlash. (The commercial also appears to be missing from Burger King's YouTube channel.)
