When a caller asked about Griffin's recent departure from Fashion Police, Cooper defended his CNN New Year's Eve Live co-host: "I want nothing but the best for Kathy, and I think she's going to go on to bigger and better things."

Cohen clearly didn't agree.

Natalia Kills and Willy Moon Speak Out: X Factor 'Encourages Judges to Be Forthright and Opinionated'

Originally posted 03/18/2015 08:20PM



While her tirade against contestant Joe Irvine – and the firing that followed – seemed fairly straightforward, former X Factor New Zealand judge Natalia Kills insists that there is more to the situation than meets the eye – but it's not a "conspiracy."

"I feel like everyone needs to put the idea of it being a manufactured conspiracy theory behind them," Kills, 28, told MTV Australia. "There's really nothing to it."

Judging by the some of the comments PEOPLE received on this story, the singer may have been referring to the theory that this has all been some calculated publicity campaign to boost Kills's profile, along with that of her husband Willy Moon.

Gina Rodriguez has always known she wanted to be a performer – even if she didn't always look the part.

"I was a huge tomboy," the Jane the Virgin star tells PEOPLE about growing up in Chicago as the youngest of three daughters born to native Puerto Rican parents.

"I remember being 6 years old – I was probably wearing joggers and an oversized T-shirt – and I saw these little girls in sequins outfits smiling and dancing at the Puerto Rican Day parade. I was like, 'I want to be in those little sequin dresses.' "

Stephen Fishbach was the runner-up on Survivor: Tocantins and has been blogging about Survivor strategy for PEOPLE since 2009. Follow him on Twitter @stephenfishbach.

"Most of the time you kinda need that social component. So when you don't win, someone's got your back – and they can take you to the end." –Brett Clouser, Survivor: Samoa

Survivor is truly a social game.

You can have all the great strategic ideas in the world. But none of it matters if you whistle out of tune or don't know how to apologize.

Wednesday night's Survivor was a testament to the importance of self-awareness and self-control. It turns out you can't curse, insult people's religion or walk around with your junk out and still win a game of influence and social politics.

Game of Thrones Season 5 Premiere: 'There's Some Really Dark Stuff Coming'

Send a raven. Game of Thrones is back.

And there couldn't possibly have been a more fitting location for Wednesday night's season 5 world premiere than the Tower of London.

Kit Harington, Natalie Dormer and Charles Dance were among the stars from the acclaimed HBO fantasy drama who brought Westeros to London, where the walls of the "Bloody Tower" were emblazoned with illuminated projections of dragons and flames that flickered along the red carpet.

Even the much-coveted Iron Throne found its way to to the historic fortress, which just happens to be circled by ravens – though not the three-eyed kind.

Was there ever any doubt that the Empire finale would be absolutely bonkers?

In just two hours, Empire crammed in approximately six seasons' worth of material – and we wouldn't have it any other way.

The finale was a bit of a convoluted ... not mess, per se, but certainly something that requires a brief recap. Here's what happened in the season 1 finale of Empire, as told in 9 GIFs (and 3 Tweets!).
