Heather Morris and a host of former Glee stars will reunite for the show's 100th episode.
Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy announced on his Twitter account this week that all of the original cast members are being invited back for the celebratory episode. He has now confirmed that Heather - who played cheerleader Brittany S. Pierce in the show - will return, along with Harry Shum Jr. (Mike), Mark Salling (Puck), Dancing with the Stars winner Amber Riley (Mercedes) and Kristin Chenoweth (April), who won an Emmy for her guest turn.
Heather hasn't appeared in the program since the fourth-season finale when Brittany was written out of the series, after announcing she was bound for early admission to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Since her exit, actress Heather and her boyfriend Taylor Hubbella welcomed their first child in the world, Elijah, who was born in September.
Whether Dianna Agron, who played Quinn, will return for the special episode remains unclear. The actress has not appeared since the 14th episode of Glee's fourth season and was not a part of season five's tribute to late star Cory Monteith.
Amber Riley has won Dancing with the Stars.
The Glee actress and her professional partner Derek Hough have taken home this year's mirrorball trophy after triumphing over High School Musical actor Corbin Bleu and his professional partner Karina Smirnoff with a perfect-scoring samba/quickstep fusion.
"Anything that scares me I want to do. You can do whatever, whatever, whatever you put your mind to," Amber said, speaking after the result was announced.
And despite coming second, Corbin was just delighted to have taken part: "I thank God for this experience. I thank my family."
Earlier in the evening, Jack Osbourne - whose sister Kelly came third on the show in 2009 - and his partner Cheryl Burke were eliminated into third place after the first round of dances. "I'm definitely not a better dancer than my sister, for one. We're both tied. Just going the distance for me was winning enough," he said.
Alec Baldwin's talk show has been officially axed.
The 55-year-old actor's late night MSNBC series Up Late has been cancelled after claims the former 30 Rock actor made a homophobic slur against a photographer earlier this month. A spokesperson for Alec and MSNBC issued the following statement to UsMagazine.com: "We are jointly confirming that Up Late will not continue on MSNBC. This is a mutual parting and we wish Alec all the best."
The star reportedly called a paparazzo a "c**ksucking f*g" hours after winning a court case against his stalker in New York, but he later insisted he had called the man a "fat head." An insider told the New York Post's Page Six that executives were not impressed by his behavior and decided to cancel his show on Tuesday. "The decision has been made. He's gone. The [parent company] Comcast guys have decided. Word is spreading through the building," the source said.
The chat show was suspended from the Friday night slot two weeks ago and Alec admitted in a blog post at the time that the future of his talk show was unclear. "Whether the show comes back at all is an issue right now," he wrote.
Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick's daughter will be Miss Golden Globe 2014.
The Following actor and The Closer actress' 21-year-old daughter Sosie Bacon will follow in the footsteps of fellow Hollywood offspring, including Bruce Willis and Demi Moore's daughter Rumer Willis and Fifty Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson, when she helps walk award winners and presenters on stage at the annual ceremony on January 12.
The annual Mr or Miss Golden Globe is usually the child of a celebrity and last year's Miss Golden Globe was legendary actor-and-director Clint Eastwood's daughter, Francesca Eastwood.
"I am delighted to have Sosie Bacon continue the tradition and have her be our 2014 Miss Golden Globe. As we all know, she comes from a very talented family and this gets us one degree closer to Kevin Bacon," Hollywood Foreign Press Association president Theo Kingma said in a statement.
Britney Spears is to appear in her own E! documentary.
The "Work B***h" singer has let cameras into her life to show viewers what is happening with her career and family in the television special entitled I Am Britney Jean, which has been confirmed to air on December 22.
Fans will also see how she prepares for her two-year Las Vegas residency in addition to looking after her children Sean and Jayden - her sons with ex-husband Kevin Federline.
According to E!, the one hour program will offer "an intimate look at one of the most overexposed yet under-revealed stars of today as she faces one of her biggest challenges ever while finishing her album, shooting videos, doing press and being a mom." The special follows Britney as she completes recording on her eighth studio album Britney Jean and she will give her "most candid and revealing interviews ever" as she discusses her personal life.
The rumors were true: Stevie Nicks will be coming to American Horror Story: Coven. With the popularity of the hit FX show rising each week and the fact that Ryan Murphy seems to have some magical power convincing any person on Earth to guest star for his shows, the announcement was not all that surprising (although nonetheless exciting!).
"Guess who's visiting the Coven? The legendary Stevie Nicks!" Murphy wrote on his Twitter this morning.

With a few of their veteran comedies now off the air, NBC needed some new TV blood for their line-up, so who best to ask for a new show than the creator of 30 Rock and one of the stars from The Office?
The network enlisted Tina Fey and her producing partner Robert Carlock for an upcoming show starring Ellie Kemper, which sees her as a woman living in New York City after having fled from a doomsday cult. Considering that the plot doesn't strike me as something that will be tickling my funny bone, it will be interesting to see Fey's spin on it.
Though the single-camera project is currently untitled, NBC has ordered 13 episodes to air next Fall.

Prepare yourself for more Lettie Mae
Thornton Daniels next summer on True Blood! Adina Porter, the actress who portrays Tara's alcoholic-turned-Bible-thumper mom, has been promoted to a series regular on the hit HBO show.
Though Porter has been a part of the vampire drama since its first season, her character had been in and out of the spotlight the past season; however, it's no surprise that we'll be seeing more of Lettie Mae considering how the show left off with her begging Tara to feed off her (as if they're going to kill off a gem of a character like Lettie Mae).
Porter starred in two seasons of another popular HBO show, The Newsroom, and has also appeared on Grey's Anatomy and American Horror Story.
True Blood's next - and final! - season airs next summer.

Alec Baldwin is to host a chat show.
The 30 Rock actor has been confirmed to present a prime-time weekly talk show, entitled Up Late With Alec Baldwin, at 10pm on MSNBC in October in which he will give his take on current affairs and culture and interview guests on such subjects.
"I've been talking with Alec for a while and can't wait to bring his personality and eclectic interests to MSNBC. He's got such passion for ideas and what's going on in the world - he's going to be a great addition to our line-up," MSNBC president Phil Griffin said in a statement.
Alec has been getting plenty of interview practice on his podcast Here's the Thing for radio station WNYC, which has seen him put the questions to several stars including Lena Dunham and Chris Rock, and he believes it has been the perfect preparation for his TV show. "After two seasons of my WNYC podcast, I've developed a fondness for hosting a show that involved talking with smart, talented and engaging people in every imaginable field. I'm grateful to MSNBC for helping me bring a similar show to television," he said.
