'Twilight' stars will return for 'Breaking Dawn'

Twihards can breathe a sigh of relief.

Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz have settled their salary dispute with Summit Entertainment and will return for “Breaking Dawn,” the company wrote in a press release Wednesday.

The pair will rejoin the rest of the Cullen clan - played by Peter Facinelli, Jackson Rathbone, Elizabeth Reaser and Nikki Reed - in the final installment of the franchise. Billy Burke, who plays Bella’s father Charlie Swan, has also signed on to take part in “Breaking Dawn.”

However, despite buzz that the final book will be split into two films, there is no mention of an additional project in the press release, which simply states, “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn” is slated released Nov. 18, 2011.

The story of Superman's younger days will be coming to a close on The CW next season.

The network announced today that "Smallville" will conclude its run after 10 seasons next year. The CW says the final season of the Superman saga will bring viewers "a conclusion worthy of a superhero."

The network also released a fall schedule with two new dramas on tap. One show not returning is the revival of "Melrose Place", which was canceled after just one season.

'Modern Family' mom demonstrates breastfeeding technique

It’s highly doubtful that we’ve ever seen this play on the gridiron.

Julie Bowen swung by “Lopez Tonight,” on Monday and told host George Lopez how she nurses her twin 1-year-old sons, John and Gus. The 40-year-old “Modern Family” mom even showed him a picture, to demonstrate just how she pulls this off.

“It’s like two little liposuction machines on you,” she said. “They suck the fat out of you. They call it the ‘double football hold.’ You hold one here, and here [gesturing to her breasts], like two footballs... They’re doing God’s work right there, helping me return to my birth weight.”

Ashley Greene: R. Patz ‘doesn’t understand girls’

Ashley GreeneWant to be Robert Pattinson’s girlfriend? (C'mon, who doesn’t?)

Well if you do – and assuming he really isn’t dating his “Twilight” co-star Kristen Stewart – there may be a small problem.

According to co-star Ashley Greene, the Brit – who has to fight off legions of female fans near and far - just “doesn’t understand girls.”

Greene, 23, said she’s probably the only woman who has yet to fall for him in the June/July issue of Seventeen magazine.

“When I met Rob, I didn’t think twice about him. He’s really attractive, but that chemistry wasn’t there,” she said.

Salma Hayek Pinault: I’m a different, better person

Salma Hayek PinaultSalma Hayek Pinault made headlines last year when she stopped to nurse a baby during a goodwill trip to Sierra Leone.

Everyone else was taken aback by her impromptu breastfeeding, but Hayek Pinault told InStyle that she “didn’t think much of it,” and “was so surprised how much attention it got.”

“This baby was hungry and I was still nursing [my daughter] Valentina, so I fed the child,” Hayek Pinault said. “What was shocking were the hate letters I received. What offended some in particular was that I breast-fed a black child. It was not even in my universe, such a thought. For me, it was a baby who was just born and was hungry. He was healthy but malnourished at this hospital – it was really just a clinic in the countryside – and I was able to help.”

But Hayek Pinault already knows she doesn’t think the same as everyone else. Unlike others in her industry, the actress isn’t interested in getting any surgical tweaks, or even Botox – and she can raise her eyebrows to prove it.

The ratings aren’t the only thing down this season on “American Idol.”

When Ryan Seacrest announced on Wednesday night that more than 47 million votes had been cast to decide who would be heading to the finale from the trio of Crystal Bowersox, Lee DeWyze and Casey James, the number may have seemed astronomical.

Until fans remember that last season’s Top 3 garnered 88 million votes.
