Sacha Baron Cohen still doing press as 'The Dictator'

Sacha Baron Cohen is pulling from a familair bag of tricks to promote “The Dictator.”

The comedian arrived at New York City’s famed Waldorf Hotel in character as General Admiral Aladeen recently to speak at a mock “press conference” for his upcoming film.

In typical Cohen fashion, he then commenced to make all varieties of politically incorrect comments (or jokes, if you're in his target audience), and even Oprah Winfrey wasn't safe.

Seeing double (and triple) on 'DWTS'

"Dancing with the Stars" saw double on Monday night, with the six remaining teams each doing a pair of routines. (All that talk of "two" gave me a hankering for some Doublemint gum.)

Donald Driver was the first celebrity up, and he performed a tango with Peta "Heavens To" Murgatroyd. He joked that it only takes two to tango but it takes three "10s" to win the Mirrorball Trophy.

Maurice Sendak dies at 83

Maurice Sendak, author of the classic children's book "Where the Wild Things Are," has died, a spokeswoman for HarperCollins Publishers said Tuesday. He was 83.

Sendak illustrated nearly 100 books during a 60-year career, winning dozens of accolades as he endeared himself to generations of children reared on his fanciful stories. One critic called him "the Picasso of children's literature." Former President Bill Clinton called him the "king of dreams."

He died Tuesday in Danbury, Connecticut, of complications from a recent stroke.

Born in Brooklyn the son of Polish immigrants, Sendak grew up to take a few night classes but largely taught himself as an artist.

Jennifer Lopez: I'm open to adoption

Jennifer Lopez has never adopted, but she still used a personal experience to play a woman who chooses to adopt in the upcoming film, "What to Expect When You're Expecting."

Lopez, who in real life is mom to 4-year-old twins Max and Emme, portrays Holly, a woman who desperately wants to have a child but faces fertility issues.
