Kendall JennerKendall Jenner has hinted she plans to quit her family's reality TV series in the near future.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, who appears in the June edition of French Vogue, admits she wants to focus on her modeling career.

When asked about her success on the catwalk, the 18-year-old brunette beauty told E! News, "I get more and more comfortable with everything. It's fun though, it's the world I wanna be living in, so it's awesome."

Kendall found out she would be appearing in the fashion bible during Paris Fashion Week in March. "I remember hearing about it and I freaked out. I was so excited. It's a dream, it's incredible, so it's amazing. You don't know how to react, it's so surreal," she added.

The model also opened up about her relationship with US Vogue editor Anna Wintour: "She's always been very kind to me. She's really awesome."


Bryan CranstonBryan Cranston will reprise his role as Walter White.

The 58-year-old actor - famed for his portrayal of the crystal meth producer in the AMC drama Breaking Bad - will "definitely" return in the new spin-off Better Call Saul, despite his character being seemingly killed off in the show's finale last year.

"With the new show coming and the possibility of flashbacks or flash-forwards, there is going to be something with Walter White. They won't do it as a gimmick, it will actually mean something when they do it. Definitely expect the return of Walter White in some way, shape or form in the new show," a source said.

However the insider was unable to confirm whether Bryan Cranston's Walter White - for which he won a Best Actor Golden Globe - will be alive when he returns to the small-screen. "I wouldn't be able to answer that, but I know that they have options of bringing him back and that they will do it in an awesome way," the insider said.

Marilyn MansonMarilyn Manson has joined the cast of Sons of Anarchy for the final season.

The 45-year-old rocker will play "a white supremacist prison shot-caller" named Ron Tully, who is set to help the show's protagonist Jackson "Jax" Teller (Charlie Hunnam) "expand his power base" in the program, which portrays police and motorcycle gangs in California.

Manson and his dad, Hugh Warner, have always been huge fans of the show which was created by Kurt Sutter, and the shock rocker admitted he is joining the series to make his father proud: "Sons has been such a big part of my life, as well as my father's. The very heart of SOA is about [the father-son] relationship ... So I was determined to make him proud by being involved in what will probably be remembered as the most amazing piece of television cinema. After all, the very heart of SOA is about that relationship. So, now all I need is a motorcycle."

Manson - whose real name is Brian Hugh Warner - has previously appeared in shows including Californication, Once Upon a Time and Eastbound & Down.


Kanye West and Kim KardashianKanye West has allegedly banned Kim Kardashian from appearing on Kourtney & Khloe Take The Hamptons.

The brunette beauty previously revealed she would join her sisters for up to a month in the exclusive enclave in Long Island, New York, after her Irish honeymoon, but her new husband doesn't want her to feature in the upcoming Keeping Up with the Kardashians spin-off series.

"There's no way Kanye was going to allow Kim do it. It's no secret how much Kanye dislikes and despises Kim's involvement with reality television, and there was no way it was going to happen so soon after the wedding. Kanye doesn't want her doing anymore reality television than she is contractually obligated to do. If Kim does agree to film, it will likely be without Kanye's knowledge beforehand!" a source said.

Kim's mother Kris Jenner is said to be "furious" that Kanye is getting involved in their business.

Nic PizzolattoAlthough two months have passed since HBO's freshman crime drama True Detective aired its season finale, fans can't let go of the rumors surrounding the next season!

Fortunately for them, creator and showrunner Nic Pizzolatto - who wrote all eight episodes of the first season - took to a podcast interview to confirm some of the season 2 speculation.

As it had already been announced that Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson were not returning for the next season, gossip has it that there will be three leads - two men and a woman - which Pizzolatto did not confirm, but did say that he's "deeply in love with each of them."

Pizzolatto did reveal that the show will take place in California: “Not Los Angeles, but some of the much lesser-known venues of California. And we’re going to try to capture a certain psycho-sphere ambiance of the place, much like we did in season one.”

Ryan SeacrestRyan Seacrest performed on American Idol last night.

The 39-year-old star - who has fronted the talent show since it began in 2002 - took to the stage on the show's finale for a surprise musical performance, which was introduced by program mentor Randy Jackson. Wearing a tuxedo, Ryan sang Richard Marx's classic ballad "Right Here Waiting" - which quickly turned into a duet when the curtains rose to reveal the crooner and the two performed together at the piano.

Speaking afterwards, Ryan jokingly told the audience, "I apologize. [That was my] moment in the sun."

Judge Harry Connick Jr. claimed the performance would trigger a new career direction for the host. "My prediction? You're going to have a record deal before this night is over," he joked. Ryan replied, "I hope not."

Miley CyrusMiley Cyrus has refused to perform on The Voice because of Christina Aguilera.

The "Wrecking Ball" hitmaker reportedly has an intense dislike of the show's coach - who, like Miley, shot to fame as a young Disney star - and even though the "Fighter" singer is currently on a two-season break from the competition, she won't sing on the show.

"Miley is no friend or supporter of Christina, despite the fact they have a lot in common, including long associations with Disney and using some of same people through the years on their respective business teams. Even if Christina has temporarily stepped aside, The Voice is still Christina's show and Miley doesn't want to lift a finger to help that woman," a source said.

Show bosses are said to be upset as they are desperate for the former Hannah Montana star to sing on the season finale. "Last month Voice bosses made Miley another offer to have her perform on the finale show and Miley said no - and was very clear about her reasons!" the source said.
