Bill Cosby to Lend Art Collection to Smithsonian for Exhibition on African-American Art

Photo by: Douglas Gorenstein/NBC(NEW YORK) -- Bill Cosby will lend his art collection to the Smithsonian Institute's National Museum of African Art for a public viewing later this year.

According to a press release from the Smithsonian, the exhibition will open on November 9 and stay open through the early part of 2016. The collection of pieces currently owned by the William H. and Camille O. Cosby Collection will be publicly displayed alongside work from the National Museum of African Art.

The Cosbys' collection includes over 200 African-American paintings, prints, sculptures and drawings. The couple began compiling the art more than 40 years ago, the Smithsonian says.

"It's so important to show art by African-American artists in this exhibition at the Smithsonian's National Museum of African Art," said Cosby. "To me, it's a way for people to see what exists and to give voice to many of these artists who were silenced for so long, some of whom will speak no more."

"Dancing with the Stars" Recap: Alfonso Ribeiro Sets High Bar in Season 19 Premiere

ABC/Rick Rowell(NEW YORK) -- The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star Alfonso Ribeiro was the early standout during the Monday premiere of the 19th season of ABC's Dancing With the Stars, while designer Betsey Johnson and Olympian Lolo Jones suffered significant missteps during their routines.

Ribeiro finished in the lead among the 13 celebrities who are vying for the coveted Mirrorball Trophy.

This year's celebrity cast includes reality TV personality Sadie Robertson, who appears in Duck Dynasty; YouTube beauty guru Bethany Mota; and NASCAR legend Michael Waltrip.

The pairs were scored by judges and will earn votes from the audience. The couple with the lowest combined total of judges' scores and audience votes will be eliminated. The first elimination of the season will come during a results show Tuesday.

The judges' panel was expanded this year to include former Dancing With the Stars pro dancer Julianne Hough, a two-time Mirrorball champion herself and sister of current pro Derek Hough. Julianne Hough evaluated performances alongside head judge Len Goodman and judges Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba.

Tonight's Routines

Antonio Sabato Jr.: The General Hospital actor's cha cha with Cheryl Burke drew moderate praise. Said Goodman: "Well it's obvious that you've got dancing in your blood. Unfortunately it hasn't reached your feet." Hough said Sabato's performance was "a little flat-footed" but she liked his extensions. Tonioli liked that Burke gave Sabato "a lot of content" for the first week and said Sabato had good hip action, while Inaba said the couple had "hot chemistry" that would lead to higher expectations. Goodman, Hough and Inaba each gave Sabato a 6, while Tonioli gave him a 7, for a total of 25 out of a possible 40.

Lea Thompson: The Back to the Future actress, who was a ballet dancer decades ago, earned warm praise from the judges for her elegance, but they cautioned her to watch her posture. "It was beautiful! It was so beautiful. It made me so happy," Hough said. Tonioli agreed, describing Thompson's quality of movement as "exquisite." Inaba said she thought it was one of the "best first foxtrots I have ever seen...you guys are a really well-balanced team," and Goodman said it "was terrific. Well done." Thompson earned four 8s for a total of 32 points.

Janel Parrish: The judges liked the spirited jive that Parrish and partner Valentin Chmerkovskiy delivered. "Naughty! Naughty! Naughty!" Tonioli said, although he said Parrish needed to polish her jive moves. Inaba liked that Parrish had the courage to "just go for it," adding: "You've got great potential." Goodman said it was "a bit untidy on occasion" but said, overall, it was well done, while Hough said Parrish was a true performer. Tonioli awarded Parrish an 8, while the others each gave her a 7 for a total of 29 points.

Lolo Jones: The Olympian's cha cha with pro partner Keo Motsepe ran into trouble at the start because of a missed cue that affected her time throughout the majority of the routine, and during her judges' critique a frustrated Jones acknowledged her performance was "awful." Hough commended her for picking the routine up again and said she needed to work on her fluidity. Tonioli told Jones that all performers mess up at times and told her to come back next week and show something better. Goodman told Jones not to be too hard on herself, adding: "You had personality, you had a bit of sizzle going on so it's not all bad." Inaba said, "Lolo, truthfully that was more like an 'uh oh.'" Jones earned two 6s and two 5s for a total of 22 points.

Betsey Johnson: A stubborn prop feather boa derailed the flamboyant fashion designer's spunky cha cha with partner Tony Dovolani. When Johnson tried to retrieve the hot pink boa from a prop rack the garment got stuck. When she tugged, it fell onto the floor and got caught between the dancers. Then Dovolani bent down to retrieve the boa and the routine petered out. Despite the malfunction, Johnson finished the routine with her trademark cartwheel and split. "I was enjoying it so much. It was so entertaining and then the disaster with the boa. I'm so upset," Goodman said. Hough said Johnson had "some really wonderful moments," and Tonioli added, "You just went for it with gusto. It went wrong." Johnson earned four 5s for a total of 20 points.

Tavis Smiley: The talk show host and partner Sharna Burgess earned praise for their foxtrot. "I like watching you dance because you're one of those people who's like a natural mover...you move so well, so natural, so likeable. Well done," Inaba told Smiley. Hough said Smiley's routine was "awesome" and that he looked comfortable on the dance floor, and Goodman said Smiley needed to work on his footwork but that the routine was fun and enjoyable. Tonioli said he loved "the comedic touches" and urged Smiley not to throw his arms. Smiley earned an 8 from Hough and 7s from the other judges for a total of 29 points.

Sadie Robertson: The Duck Dynasty star's cha cha with Mark Ballas earned praise from the judges. "Duckling no more. Here we've got a bird of paradise!" Tonioli said. Added an approving Goodman: "Quack! Quack! You'll be back." Hough called Robertson "the entire package." Inaba said Robertson had gorgeous lines. Inaba and Goodman awarded her 8s while Hough and Tonioli gave her 9s for a total of 34 points.

Michael Waltrip: The NASCAR racer's cha cha with Emma Slater drew mixed review from the judges. "I liked it...I think you did fantastic. It was fun, entertaining, well done, simple," Inaba said. Hough said it was "awesome" and noted that it seemed Waltrip was having so much fun. But in comparing Waltrip with Slater, Tonioli said "you looked at times like a golf cart trying to keep up with a Ferrari," and Goodman made another car analogy: "The engine was running but you never got out of first gear." Waltrip earned three 6s and a 7 for a total of 25.

Jonathan Bennett: The Mean Girls actor's bubbly jive with Allison Holker earned him a standing ovation from the ballroom audience. "You're a polished performer...I'm, like, blown away," Inaba said. Hough called Bennett "such a natural performer" and told him he had potential. Goodman agreed, telling him to "work hard." Bennett earned two 7s and two 8s for a total of 30 points.

Tommy Chong: The comedian's cool cha cha with pro partner Peta Murgatroyd -- and a cameo from his comedy partner, Cheech Marin -- brought smiles to the judges' faces. "You are extremely sexy," Hough told Chong, adding: "You have the moves like nobody's business." Tonioli confessed that he'd been expected "bad grandpa. I'm getting cool grandpa." Goodman said it was painless, fun and enjoyable. Inaba added: "That was fantastic! You came in like a low rider ... you killed it!" Chong earned three 7s and a 6 for a total of 27 points.

Randy Couture: Judges were full of praise for the mixed martial artist and action movie star's smooth foxtrot with partner Karina Smirnoff. Hough and Inaba both found the actor's performance sexy, with Hough telling him: "Randy, you're making me randy...you have grace and you have class and there's a sensitive beauty about you." Inaba said she prided herself in being professional but couldn't help feeling "a little weak in the knees…you are sexy out there!" Goodman said the performance "had a charm about it," and Tonioli said Couture was light on his feet. Couture earned three 8s and a 7 for a total of 31 points.

Bethany Mota: The YouTube sensation earned good reviews for her jive with partner Derek Hough. Inaba found the routine "tight, clean and well-rehearsed," but said there were lulls in Mota's energy. Hough agreed. Goodman thought Mota should keep her diary clear as he found the routine "terrific." Added Tonioli: "Huge on the Web and pretty good on the dance floor as well...I'm telling you, you were wonderful." Mota earned four 8s for a total of 32 points.

Alfonso Ribeiro: Ribeiro's and pro partner Witney Carson's electrifying jive earned them a standing ovation, including from Goodman. "Beautiful routine. Fantastically danced," Goodman said. "That was without question the best dance of the night." Hough said she was "blown about by the musicality in that," and commended Carson's choreography. Tonioli said Ribeiro was the "king of the night" and Inaba said Ribeiro had "the swagger of season 19...you just raised the stakes my friend! Excellent." Ribeiro earned 36 points, the highest score of the night.

ABC will air the results show Tuesday night at 8 p.m. Eastern time.

Tiffani Thiessen Is 'Definitely Trying' to Get Pregnant

USA Network Photo: David Giesbrecht(NEW YORK) --  Tiffani Thiessen would like to expand her family soon.

Even more excited about the possibility of a second baby? Her 4-year-old daughter, Harper.

"She puts more pressure on me than anyone!" Thiessen told the online magazine, Sweden with Love. "Every day, she begs me to have a baby. She can’t wait to turn into a little mommy. She’s ready!"

Thiessen, 40, is hoping she can make that a reality sooner rather than later. The White Collar actress and her husband, Brady Smith, are "definitely trying."

"With Harper it happened right away," she said, adding that she doesn't think she's currently pregnant. "I’m hoping it’ll be as easy this time around."

There are other exciting things coming down the pike for the actress too. Thiessen, an avid gardener who has a chicken coop in her backyard, will begin filming a new show for the Cooking Channel, Dinner at Tiffani's, later this year, and she's also gearing up to send Harper off to her last year of preschool.

"I’ve loved so much that I’ve been able to spend basically every day with her. Even when I’ve been working, she’s come to work with me," she said. "She’s going to be in school until 3 p.m., and that’s a long time for me to be away from her. I suspect I’ll pull her out once in a while."

Still, Harper, whom Thiessen described as "high-spirited girl," certainly has a mind of her own, her mom added.

"She knows what she wants, and that can be challenging at times. But I don’t ever want to quash her spirit or change the fact that she’s a strong-willed little kid," she said. "We have boundaries and we have rules, but we’re not crazy strict. We want her to grow up to be both a respectful and happy person."

First Full-Length Trailer for "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay -- Part 1" Debuts

Lionsgate(NEW YORK) -- The first official, full-length trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay is here.

Part 1 hits theaters on Nov. 21 but, in the meantime, here are a few highlights from the almost-two-minute clip.

Jennifer Lawrence opens the scene as Katniss, saying, "I never wanted any of this. I never wanted to be in the games. I just wanted to save my sister and keep Peeta alive."

To which President Snow responds, "It's the things we love the most which destroy us."

Then all heck breaks loose, as we see the rebels led by Lawrence, including other co-stars such as Elizabeth Banks and Liam Hemsworth.

One more thing: Peeta is alive and is being kept in the Capitol.

"Peeta is the Captiol's weapon," Woody Harrelson's Haymitch tells Katniss. "The same way you are ours!"

"The View" Premieres with New Hosts

Lou Rocco/ABC(NEW YORK) -- It's a new era for The View.

The ABC talk show kicked off a new season with three new co-hosts -- Rosie O'Donnell, Rosie Perez and Nicolle Wallace -- in a new studio in New York City.

"The thing that never changes on The View is it's great conversation with great women," Whoopi Goldberg said at the start of the show. "That is not going to change."

First up to introduce herself was O'Donnell, who was returning to the show after getting married, having a new baby and sending her oldest off to college. Sitting cross-legged and barefoot, she also said that she had lost about 50 pounds after having surgery.

"I'm good. I'm happy," O'Donnell, 52, told the live studio audience. "I had a heart attack two years ago in August and then I had the vertical gastric sleeve. ...It is sort of a last change thing after you tried everything else. ...I feel better."

Perez went next, explaining that in addition to joining the talk show, she's also gearing up to star in a new Broadway show alongside Larry David. She also recently married musician Eric Hayes, and is a longtime activist now working as part of the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV and AIDS.

"Life is good," Perez, 50, said. "I could go on and on and on and brag about myself but I usually like other people to praise me, not to praise myself. It's a Latin thing."

Another new face was Wallace, 42, who worked in the White House with George W. Bush before joining John McCain and Sarah Palin's ill-fated presidential campaign. She's also a novelist and the mother of a 2-year-old son.

"I am a Republican," she declared before O'Donnell -- who famously sparred with Republican Elisabeth Hasselbeck -- announced, "And I really like her!"

The only remaining panelist from last season was Goldberg, 58, who emerged thinner, having topped out at 217 lbs.

"I'm happy to have a gig and happy to be working with y'all," she said. "[I'm] happy we get to carry on the tradition."

Cheryl Burke Done with "Dancing with the Stars"?

ABC/Craig Sjodin(NEW YORK) -- After 10 years of dancing with stars from Drew Lachey to Emmitt Smith to Rob Kardashian, Dancing with the Stars pro Cheryl Burke may be hanging up her dancing shoes -- on TV at least.

“As of now, this is probably going to be my last season,” Burke told ABC News' Good Morning America on the eve of her first dance with star partner Antonio Sabato Jr., on the show’s 19th season, premiering Monday night.

“I started when I’m 20. I’m 30. I want to try new things and just see what’s out there,” she said.

Burke has appeared on 18 of the show’s 19 seasons. She is the show’s first professional dancer to appear in the finals seven times and the semi-finals 10 times.

Burke, a two-time winner of the show’s coveted Mirror Ball trophy, has been open about exploring other opportunities while on the show, including opening her love life up to TV.

In 2012, Burke told reporters she had spoken to ABC executives about becoming the next Bachelorette.

“There hasn’t been a firm offer, but if they offer it to me, I would love to do it,” she said at the time.

The 19th season of Dancing with the Stars, and possibly Burke’s last, premieres Monday, Sept. 15, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

"Django Unchained" Actress Says She Was Handcuffed for 'Showing Affection'

Michael Tran/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- An actress who appeared in the film Django Unchained is claiming Los Angeles police handcuffed her last week after "showing affection" toward her partner in public.

In a lengthy post on her Facebook page on Thursday, Daniele Watts wrote, "Today I was handcuffed and detained by 2 police officers from the Studio City Police Department after refusing to agree that I had done something wrong by showing affection, fully clothed, in a public place."

Watts says when police arrived, she stood on a sidewalk and spoke with her father on her phone. She knew she'd done nothing wrong, so she walked away.

She says a few minutes later, two police officers "accosted" her and "forced" her into handcuffs. She continues, "As I was sitting in the back of the police car, I remembered the countless times my father came home frustrated or humiliated by the cops when he had done nothing wrong. I felt his shame, his anger, and my own feelings of frustration for existing in a world where I have allowed myself to believe that 'authority figures' could control my BEING...my ability to BE!!!!!!!"  

Watts also posted a photo of herself crying during the incident, alongside another picture of herself playing a cop on the show Weeds.  

Watts' partner, Brian, maintains to TMZ that the two were making out inside a parked car outside of CBS studios in Los Angeles when a nearby resident spotted them and called police. He suggests police confronted them because he's white and Watts is black, and they thought she was a prostitute.

On Sunday, the Los Angeles Police Department released a statement saying officers were responding to a call that "a male and a female were involved in indecent exposure inside a Silver Mercedes with the vehicle door open."

The statement notes, "The responding sergeant and police officers located two individuals that matched the description of the suspects, and they were briefly detained. Upon further investigation it was determined that no crime had been committed. Ms. Watts and her companion were subsequently released."

The LAPD says an internal investigation regarding the matter has been launched.

Watts currently stars in the new FX comedy Partners.

New Season of "Dancing with the Stars" Begins Monday Night

ABC (LOS ANGELES) -- Thirteen celebrities will put on their dancing shoes Monday night when ABC's Dancing with the Stars begins its 19th season.

The judges' desk will be a little more crowded this season. Former Dancing with the Stars pro and two-time champ Julianne Hough will join Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba on the panel. There will also be guest judges during the season.

Hough -- whose brother, Derek, will be back as one of the pros -- doesn't plan on holding back her opinions. She tells ABC News Radio, "I judge the way that I teach. And, you know, if you saw previous seasons that I was on I was not afraid to crack the whip on my dance partners. Where, you know, I do have my little halo, it's held up by my devil horns."

In another wrinkle to the format, there will be a separate results show during at least the first two weeks of competition. Last season, Dancing with the Stars aired only once per week throughout the competition.

Among the notable celebrities who will enter the spotlight in the ABC ballroom: YouTube star Bethany Mota, General Hospital's Antonio Sabato Jr., Duck Dynasty's Sadie Robertson, former The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air actor Alfonso Ribeiro, Back to the Future actress Lea Thompson, and comedian Tommy Chong.

Las Vegas oddsmaker Johnny Avello has tabbed Sabato Jr. as the early front-runner for the Mirrorball Trophy, followed by Ribeiro and track star Lolo Jones. Tommy Chong has the longest odds, behind PBS host Tavis Smiley.

If Sabato Jr. wants to finish in first place, he'll have to battle through the pain he's already been experiencing in rehearsals. He says he's been taking a lot of Advil, adding, "The hips are hurting. Everything is new. The mind is working really fast to get all these moves."

However, he notes, "I’m just blessed to be a part of this."

Thompson is simply hoping to have fun on the dance floor, despite some concerns she has about doing the show. She comments, "That’s what’s really great about dance, because once you just let it go, it’s just joy, and I’m hoping to get to that spot again."

On the first night of Dancing with the Stars, which will begin at 8 p.m. Eastern time, each couple will dance either the cha cha, the foxtrot or the jive. One couple will be eliminated the following night on the results show, which will air at 8 p.m. Eastern time and will feature musical guests Smokey Robinson and Aloe Blacc.

Here's a rundown of this season's couples:

  •  Jonathan Bennett, Mean Girls actor, and Allison Holker
  •  Tommy Chong, one-half of the comedy duo Cheech and Chong, and Peta Murgatroyd
  •  Randy Couture, UFC star, and Karina Smirnoff
  •  Betsey Johnson, fashion designer, and Tony Dovolani
  •  Lolo Jones, track star, and Keo Motsepe
  •  Bethany Mota, YouTube star, and Derek Hough
  •  Janel Parrish, Pretty Little Liars actress, and Valentin Chmerkovskiy
  •  Alfonso Ribeiro, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air actor, and Witney Carson
  •  Sadie Robertson, Duck Dynasty star, and Mark Ballas
  •  Antonio Sabato Jr., General Hospital actor, and Cheryl Burke
  •  Tavis Smiley, PBS host, and Sharna Burgess
  •  Lea Thompson, Back to the Future actress, and Artem Chigvintsev
  •  Michael Waltrip, NASCAR driver and owner, and Emma Slater

Cecily Strong: I'm 'Genuinely Happy' After Being Replaced on "Weekend Update"

NBC(NEW YORK) -- If Cecily Strong is upset that she's been replaced on Saturday Night Live's "Weekend Update" desk, she's hiding it really well.

NBC announced last Thursday that former SNL writer Michael Che will fill Strong's anchor seat, joining Colin Jost when the new season begins Sept. 27. Strong reacted to the news in an Instagram post, promising to stay involved with "Weekend Update" in guest roles.

Strong wrote, "I don't see this as me leaving update, just as me being on update in a looser, goofier way that is a lot more fun for me and in a way I think I'm better at. And now I get to do features with the very funny and wonderful Michael Che!"

She adds, "No point in being angry or sad for me for something I'm genuinely happy about!"

Chris Pratt will host the 40th-season premiere of SNL, with musical guest Ariana Grande.

"The View" Looks Forward to a Brand New Season

Lou Rocco/ABC(NEW YORK) -- A new season of The View with several new co-hosts, a new set and a new logo returns to ABC on Monday.

Still, when the show does enter its 19th season, viewers will see one familiar face -- returning moderator Whoopi Goldberg. She said she's looking forward to learning from her new co-hosts -- Rosie O'Donnell, actress Rosie Perez and political analyst Nicolle Wallace.

"My function amongst the woman is to contribute to the conversation," says Goldberg. "You know, I have as much experience -- or maybe a little bit more because I'm older -- to offer the youngins...the newbies...and they have a lot of stuff to give me as well. So it's good. It's fun."

O'Donnell, who is returning to the daytime talk show after a stint from 2006 to 2007, said one reason behind her decision to return is the chance to work with one co-host in particular.

"What drew me back was the opportunity to work with Whoopi Goldberg. I have admired her since I first saw her in her first one-woman show back when we were both younger and less gray...," O'Donnell quipped. "But this is the first time I get to do it day in and day out so that's a pretty good gig."

The other Rosie on the panel, Rosie Perez, will make history Monday when she takes her seat. She'll become the first Latina to be an official co-host.

"I didn't even realize that I would be the first Latina on The View. I read that in the Entertainment Weekly article and the NPR article and I was like, 'Oh! That's right!'" Perez said. "And I just believe that that's so bada**. I love it! I love it! It's such an honor."

One new co-host that viewers may not recognize is Wallace. She served as communications chief for George W. Bush’s White House and re-election campaign and was a senior advisor for the McCain-Palin campaign in 2008. Wallace says her former boss supports her decision to join the show.

"He had some very encouraging things to say," Wallace said of former President Bush. "And listen, all politicians, all presidents know the power of this show. So it was no surprise that a former president knew exactly what this show was [and] exactly how important it was."
