Dick Clark, the well-known television producer and host, has died. Clark suffered a massive heart attack after undergoing an outpatient procedure, and attempts at resuscitation failed.
Dick Clark's health has been on a steady decline since he suffered a stroke back in 2004, which led to him being forced to retire from his post as host of New Year's Rockin' Eve (which Ryan Seacrest took over two years later.)
Kim Kardashian still feels married.
The 31-year-old reality star filed for divorce from NBA player Kris Humphries after just 72-days of marriage in October, but insists she hasn't put herself back on the market.
Addressing rumors she has been hooking up with long-time friend Kanye West, she said, "I think I'm still married. I'm really not dating right now at all. I'm really just focusing on work. I know I always say this, but I'm trying to just get through my situation and just have fun."
Mad Men actor Jon Hamm recently took aim at Kim and fellow socialite Paris Hilton as part of a rant about Hollywood celebrity culture - but Kim is adamant did not take his comments personally. Appearing on Ryan Seacrest's radio show, she said, "I respect Jon and I am a firm believer that everyone is entitled to their own opinion, not everyone takes the same path in life. We're all working hard and we all have to respect one another. I just feel like, to be honest, it's all about trying to stay focused and keeping everything positive. It really takes a lot more energy and effort to be harsh than to say something nice and be positive."
Kim Kardashian is filing for divorce today, Halloween 2011, after just 72 days of marriage. The 31-year-old reality TV star married basketball star Kris Humphries in a lavish televised ceremony in August but after rampant speculation their relationship was trouble, 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' producer Ryan Seacrest has confirmed a divorce is imminent. He wrote on Twitter: "Yes @kimkardashian is filing for divorce this morning. I touched base with her, getting a statement in just a few mins"
Kim - who attended a Halloween party in New York over the weekend but did not bring Kris along - has reportedly hired divorce lawyer Laura Wasser, who has previously represented Britney Spears, Maria Shriver, Angelina Jolie and Ryan Reynolds and will cite "irreconcilable differences" in her divorce papers, and is not seeking annulment. Sources close to the pair told website TMZ that their arguments over where to live were responsible for the breakdown of the union, with Kris wanting to live in Minnesota while Kim didn't want to leave Los Angeles. Although this has been a source of tension for some time, they decided to try to figure it out after the wedding because they were so caught up with being in love. Kim has previously revealed her marriage to 26-year-old Kris wasn't ideal because of the publicity surrounding their union and said they were finding it hard to get some alone time. She said: "It's not been ideal because you're newlyweds and you want privacy."
Kim and Kris tied the knot in a fairytale ceremony in front of 440 guests in Montecito, California with her sisters Khloe and Kourtney as matron and maid of honour, and her nephew, 23-month old Mason, as ring bearer.

Comedian Russell Brand wants to get married by an Elvis Presley impersonator.
The Get Him to the Greek star insists he and fiancee Katy Perry have not yet finalized plans for their forthcoming nuptials, but would consider tying the knot in Las Vegas.
“Now we’re talking, the drive-thru chapel. A Vegas wedding, married by Elvis Presley, or even better, Aaron Presley in his unnourished form,” he joked.
However, despite previously being branded a “total bridezilla” by Katy, Russell, 34, insists he is leaving the wedding planning to the 25-year-old singer: “If you’re getting married, the girl does it. I’m I helping? No way, man. I’m just looking out the window.”
Despite Katy’s friend Rihanna previously claiming the couple plan to marry in India, Katy insists they have not yet found a location but admits they are looking to go abroad. She told Ryan Seacrest, “I haven’t told Rihanna where we’re getting married actually. She thought we were getting married in India because we got engaged there. I hope it to be in a location because I think it’s better to take people out of their comfort zones. I think it’s going to be small for right now because there’s so much biggness going on in our lives. There will be receptions and parties. Everybody knows that I love to throw a good party.”

TMZ is reporting that American Idol 9 front-runner Crystal Bowersox almost walked away from the show two weeks ago. The way TMZ tells it, host Ryan Seacrest gave her a quick heart-to-heart to keep her on the top-rated reality series.
The scene allegedly happened before witnesses, in the parking lot of the theater where Idol is filmed. One upset Crystal Bowersox reportedly said she hated the attention of being on the show, turning to Seacrest to say “What’s the point?” No kidding what’s the point - Bowersox is so well-loved by judges and fans alike, she’s already easily scored herself a singing career. Sources say that homesickness was to blame for taking Crystal out of her game.

Man of a million jobs Ryan Seacrest says that the new American Idol judge Ellen DeGeneres will change the “sexual tension” on the show.
The host is very pleased that the openly gay star is joining the judging panel—which also includes Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson and Kara DioGuardi—because she will bring a new dynamic to the series.
“We love Ellen, she is a superstar. She will change the sexual tension. Simon and Paula had a specific sort of tension, but this will be quite different.”
Although Ryan is excited about Ellen’s arrival, judge Randy insists she has a lot to learn from himself, Simon and Kara: “She’ll be following my lead, I’ve told her to watch the dog.”
Ellen is taking Paula Abdul‘s spot on the TV talent show, and will join the panel after the audition rounds are completed.
“This is so exciting for me. Hopefully, I will be the people’s point of view because I’m just like everyone at home, I sit their and I watch it. I’m not looking at it in a critical way from the producer’s mind. I’m looking at it as a person who is going to buy the music and is going to relate to that person,” Ellen said.
