'Don't Trust the B--' stars embrace show's title

It's no surprise that Krysten Ritter revels in the chance to play Chloe, the title character in ABC's new comedy, "Don't Trust the B-- in Apartment 23."

"I mean, d-uh," she told CNN. "[In the premiere] alone, I’m in a rap video; I’m naked; I’m getting a kid drunk; and having sex on a birthday cake. It’s ridiculous! It’s really fun to play any character that has no morals and no filter."

Ritter was genuinely surprised through the course of shooting the show's first season as to how far the writers took her character.

Bieber backs 'Bully' doc: I was bullied too

The Weinstein Company's documentary on bullying in schools has received another show of support from teen pop star Justin Bieber.

The 18-year-old singer has provided the soundtrack for a new TV spot for the "Bully "documentary with his song "Born to Be Somebody." The clip, which premiered on Fandango.com, began airing on TV Monday.

“I was bullied,” Bieber told "Showbiz Tonight's" Kareen Wynter in an exclusive interview. "Most people in their lifetime have been bullied at some point. I think that it's about time that people start making a change."

A few of the celebrities, Katherine Jenkins in particular, needed clarification (more than once) that they were safe, courtesy of a loud, overzealous audience.

The "Dance Duel," promoted last week, didn't occur.  ABC says the dance-off between couples with the lowest viewer vote totals will actually begin next week.  And one of the show's more popular celebrities got the boot.

Nicki Minaj: Gaga comparisons are 'tired'

You won't offend Nicki Minaj if you try to draw a comparison between her and another outrageously dressed singer, Lady Gaga, but she just might demand to know why you think they're similar.

"[The comparison] irks me, yeah," Minaj said in an interview with ABC's "Nightline."

"First of all, I'm a rapper. I'm from south Jamaica, Queens. What are the similarities? Wigs? Every female in this game wears wigs." And if you think "over-the-top costumes" is another thing the two stars have in common, you'll be met with the buzzer sound.

Gary Ross won't direct next 'Hunger Games' film

As "The Hunger Games" continues to dominate the box office, director Gary Ross has confirmed that he's stepping away from the franchise.

Reports surfaced last week that Ross was bowing out of helming the next "Hunger Games" film, "Catching Fire," with some citing creative reasons and others speculating he was holding out for a larger payday.

But Ross himself says the issue is one of timing.
