The golden rule of Survivor is the same as the golden rule for life.
Just freaking be polite to people.
Jennifer Lawrence plays superheroes onscreen, but her real-life kryptonite is pretty standard, as far as secret weaknesses go.
Lawrence visited The Late Show Wednesday night and confessed to David Letterman that while she sings in the newest Hunger Games installment, Mockingjay, Part 1, she's not comfortable with singing in public. In fact, she's mortified by the idea.
It was a night of triumph and heartbreak on The Voice Wednesday, as 12 artists moved ahead and eight artists said goodbye during the first live elimination show of the seventh season.
America's votes saved the two top vote-getters on each team of five singers, which forced each of the four coaches to save just one of their three remaining artists.
The hour-long show moved along briskly and put Team Blake Shelton in the hot seat first.
After five seasons on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Jacqueline Laurita knew it was time to take a break from reality TV.
"It was just very stressful," she tells PEOPLE. "So I agreed to do it part-time. It's been positive being away from the craziness of the show."
While the mom of three still appears in the show's sixth season, she's been focusing her time on family, including son Nicholas, who was diagnosed with autism in 2012.
Two weeks ago, scores of Voice viewers thought coach Pharrell Williams made a questionable choice when he shockingly decided to keep Elyjuh René over the highly praised Ricky Manning in the knockout rounds.
But on the second night of the live playoffs on Tuesday, the seeming wisdom of Williams's selection shone through when the California-based singer, 18, delivered an emotional rendition of "Latch" that had all four coaches on their feet.
"I can't believe what I just saw," gushed Adam Levine, whose team performed the previous night alongside Blake Shelton's five remaining artists. "Precisely perfect, soulful ... Pharrell has one of the strongest teams, and you just became the front-runner on one of the strongest teams."
The Real Housewives of New Jersey not only ended its season and reunion Tuesday night, but it also said goodbye to Teresa Giudice – perhaps forever.
"Do you think this is it for you?" host Andy Cohen asked her.
"Yeah, I think so," said an emotional Giudice, who is scheduled to report to prison on Jan. 5 to serve a 15-month sentence for fraud charges. "You're gonna make me cry, Andy. This is probably gonna be my last reunion."
Pat Sajak has seen a lot over the 33 years he has hosted Wheel of Fortune, but he couldn't get over the horsing around on Monday's episode.
The particular puzzle at the center of the story begins with the contestants on the syndicated game show guessing a 4-word answer to the question "What are you doing?"
After contestants Mitch and Lee successfully guess the first letter, putting a single "N" on the board in the first word, the duo has three seconds to guess the answer.
"Riding a brown horse," says one of the men, taking a stab in the dark.
His guess is met by laughter from the studio audience and Sajak.
Because no Hollywood marriage is truly complete unless it plays out on TV, Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg have decided to start a reality series of their own.
A&E has ordered 10 episodes of Donnie Loves Jenny, a new chapter in the cable network's love affair with the Wahlberg clan that began with this year's Wahlburgers, which focuses on the family's restaurant in Boston. This iteration will follow the newlyweds from the moment they got hitched Aug. 31 to whatever played out in their subsequent days of bliss.
Come for the luxury, stay for the frozen grapes.
Keira Knightley has been in show business for a while, but she still cherishes the memories of her earliest years in movies. Even if those memories aren't exactly private jets and champagne.
On Jimmy Kimmel Live! Monday night, Knightley explained to Kimmel that she still owns a pair of slippers from her stay at the L.A.'s Four Seasons Hotel, when Disney flew her out to the city for her Pirates of the Caribbean audition. But there's another secret of the Four Seasons that Knightley was keen to spill: their frozen grapes.
Jax is jacked.
