Trailer Park: Disney gets 'Tangled' and 'McPhee' returns

If you like animated features and movies about hair – the planets are about to align for you!

Walt Disney Pictures’ 50th full-length animated feature, "Tangled", is headed to the big screen this November. “Chuck's” Zachary Levi lends his voice to the kingdom’s most wanted — and most charming — bandit Flynn Rider.

While hiding out in a tower after his latest heist, Flynn bumps into Rapunzel, voiced by Mandy Moore, a feisty teen with 70 feet of golden hair who’s looking for her ticket out of the tower where she’s been locked away for years. The unlikely duo set off into a hilarious, hair-raising escapade filled with adventure, humor and hair — lots and lots of hair.

Prince to receive BET Lifetime Achievement Award

BET has announced that Prince will receive this year's BET Lifetime Achievement Award at the June 27 Awards ceremony, which will mark the 10th anniversary of the BET Awards show.

Known for his unconventional and groundbreaking performances, Prince has been a musical legend for decades, producing 10 platinum albums and three times as many Top 40 singles. BET noted in their announcement that “Prince’s music transcends all generations," and it's a notion that Prince agrees with.

The artist, who recently celebrated his 52nd birthday, told Ebony magazine that “we made music way ahead of its time anyway...It’s as fresh 2day as ever.”

Dina Manzo done with 'Real Housewives' because of Danielle Staub

Dina Manzo is done with “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” and a statistical analysis reveals it’s all because of Danielle Staub.

"I would say 99.9 percent is because of Danielle [Staub], but the other .1 percent was drama created by her," Manzo told Us Weekly.

As fans of the show can concur, "Danielle became all we ever talked about! I wanted to film some fun stuff," Manzo said.

The May 31 episode, in which Staub showed up at a charity event with a bodyguard in tow, wasn't the kind of "fun stuff" Manzo was hoping to capture. The event, which was held at the Manzo-owned catering hall called The Brownstone, became the scene of a dispute that ended with Manzo’s nephew being called a gay slur by Staub’s company.

'Blood' actor: 'I'm happy to throw my clothes off'

“True Blood” fans who wanted to see more of Alexander Skarsgard were gratified Sunday, when the third season premiered. The actor's first scene of the season was in the nude.

“I love the scene,” he told Access Hollywood. “It’s a fun scene. I think it’s a good introduction to Eric in Season 3.”

For Skarsgard, who plays vampire sheriff Eric Northman, the nudity isn’t an issue as long as the scene makes sense.

Cameron Diaz: I'm not ready to be a mother

Getting older when you’re an actress is often considered to be a negative thing, but Cameron Diaz, 37, doesn't see it that way.

"The experience of growing older is that you become more introspective. You learn who you are and what you want. When you're in your 20s, you have no idea what the hell's going on or who you are or how the world works,” the actress told InStyle magazine in its July issue.

“Wisdom is really underrated. We are obsessed with youth, with physical youth, what we look like and what happens to our bodies as we get older. We forget what happens to our souls, our minds, and our actual human experience."

Robert Pattinson: I'm a bit old-fashioned

With the promotional walk-up to “Eclipse” in full-swing (and no end in sight until June 30), it feels like Robert Pattinson has been talking for the past 24 hours straight; he hasn’t read “Breaking Dawn,” (poor kid has no idea what he’s in for); he’d like to go on a date; it’s the anticipation of sex that makes “Twilight” so sexy.

The 24-year-old actor isn’t done yet. In an interview with Parade magazine, Pattinson once again touched on “Twilight’s” take on sex, and he said that he understands why his character, Edward, is staunchly against sealing the deal with his human love, Bella.

“Edward is old fashioned. Nowadays, everyone just goes around screwing everyone for no reason,” Pattinson told Parade. “I guess Edward doesn't really want to sort of cheapen his relationship with Bella, even though she's pushing him to go all the way. He's got this certain idea of how it should go with the love of his life. He wants to do it right and not just follow his base instincts. I guess I'm a bit old fashioned in that way as well."
