ABC/Tony Rivetti(NEW YORK) -- When black-ish returns Wednesday, Tracee Ellis Ross' character Rainbow may have a "little secret."
"Dre thinks that Rainbow is pregnant," she teased on Monday's Good Morning America. "And perhaps she is, perhaps she isn't."
On black-ish, Ross portrays Rainbow, a doctor and mother of four kids. Her husband, Dre, is played by comedian Anthony Anderson. The series follows the family as they navigate life in the suburbs.
The actress said it's no secret why so many people have connected with the comedy.
"We're a loving family and I think that's one of the beautiful lessons of the show that [we have] all these differing opinions, all these differing ideas and somehow even though [we] might all disagree about the way things should go, or look, or whatever, you find your way back, and there's this love between the family," the daughter of Diana Ross explained.
Although Tracee Ellis Ross is filming black-ish, she had time to co-host BET's Black Girls Rock, which was taped last Saturday at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark, New Jersey, but airs April 5 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
Among others, the awards show honored Jada Pinkett Smith with the Star Power Award, Cicely Tyson with the Living Legend Award, Erykah Badu with the Rock Star Award and Selma director Ava DuVernay with the Shot Caller Award, among others.
"The show itself is just the tip of the iceberg for what the organization does, [which is] empowering young women and making sure that we have generations of trailblazing women," Ross said on GMA. "But it was an exciting show. We had Mrs. [Michelle] Obama, the first lady, was with us all night."
Obama spoke about the importance of education during her address at Black Girls Rock. She also told the honorees, "I am so proud of you. My husband, your president, is so proud of you. We have so much hope and dreams for you."
Black-ish airs Wednesday nights at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
Telepictures Productions Inc.(LOS ANGELES) -- What in the world would make Hilary Duff dye her blonde tresses green?
"I've never done anything like this, and I was just in Cabo [San Lucas, Mexico] with my son and I was staring at the ocean and I was like, 'I want that on my head,'" she said on Monday during her 12th appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. "So this happened."
Duff said her 3-year-old son, Luca, with former NHL player Mike Comrie, loves the new look.
"Here's the thing: Luca is very particular about how he likes my hair. There are absolutely no buns on my head, no ponytails. I'll have a ponytail and he's like, 'Um, hair down, Mom. Hair down, please,'" she explained. "Now he likes to go through his roster of colors that he knows. He's like, 'Your hair's purple,' and I'm like, 'No, it's green.' He's like, 'Nah.' I'm like, 'Yeah.' He's like, 'It's blue.' 'No.' 'It's purple.' 'No.'"
"He's very, very funny," Duff added, smiling.
Duff is set to star in TV Land's new comedy Younger, which premieres Tuesday at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
Comedy Central(NEW YORK) — The Daily Show has found their new host.
South African comic and Daily Show contributor Trevor Noah will succeed Jon Stewart when he leaves the show later this year, the network announced on Twitter.
"It's official: we're thrilled to confirm @Trevornoah will be the next #DailyShow host," read the tweet.
Noah, 31, first appeared on The Daily Show last December in a segment titled “Spot the Africa,” during which he highlighted African stereotypes by comparing America to African nations, including Noah’s home country of South Africa.
Comedy Central president Michele Ganeless said of Noah: “We talked to women. We talked to men. We found in Trevor the best person for the job. You don’t hope to find the next Jon Stewart -- there is no next Jon Stewart. So, our goal was to find someone who brings something really exciting and new and different."
Largely unknown in America outside of his Comedy Central appearances, Noah is a popular stand-up comic in Europe. The son of a black Xhosa mother and a white Swiss father, Noah tells The New York Times his mother had to hide who his father was during apartheid, since multi-racial unions were illegal.
"He brings such a unique worldview and a deep understanding of human nature, which makes his comedy so insightful,” Ganeless said of Noah. “He’s truly a student of the world.”
Noah also brings color to a talk show medium that has increasingly been criticized for being too white, too male and two middle-aged. His selection follows Comedy Central’s The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, which debuted last January starring the former Daily Show correspondent, who also is black.
Noah himself tweeted the news Monday morning, writing, "No one can replace Jon Stewart. But together with the amazing team at The Daily Show, we will continue to make this the best damn news show!"
Chris Rock also tweeted his stamp of approval, posting a screenshot of Noah with the caption, "Thank you President Obama."

Burgess explains to ABC Radio, "It'll be the first week we can do lifts. And anyone who's followed our Instagram account knows that we've got some good ones up our sleeves."
Riker Lynch, the Glee actor and R5 musician, and his partner, Allison Holker, promise their dance will be "hot," "spicy," "grimy" and "on fire." As Holker puts it, "It's Latin Week. We have to be all of those things."
One couple will be eliminated at the end of the night.
Here's a rundown of the songs to which the couples will dance on Monday night:

Courtesy of Comedy Central(LOS ANGELES) — You've heard all about it, but now you can finally see it: Comedy Central's Roast of Justin Bieber airs Monday night at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
The show features celebs like Snoop Dogg, Martha Stewart and Shaquille O'Neal ripping into the Bieb about everything from his sexuality, to his arrests, to his relationship with Selena Gomez. And according to the participants, coming up with insults about the singer was almost too easy.
Talking about how he prepared to host Monday night's roast, Kevin Hart told reporters on the red carpet, "I basically went through my mental Rolodex of all the dumb s**t that Justin has done and I said, 'You know what? Why choose a couple? Just talk about it all!'"
Asked to name his favorite dumb thing that Justin's done, Hart laughed, "My favorite? He bought a monkey! It doesn’t get better than that. The white kid bought a monkey. Is that not a big deal to everybody? I don’t understand how that is not the topic of conversation overall!"
But in addition to having to rely on their mental Rolodexes, one of the roasters, comedian Natasha Leggero, tells ABC Radio that Comedy Central helped everyone come up with jokes by giving them tons of research about Justin's missteps.
"You download the twenty-five page document that Comedy Central sends you of all of his arrests and DUIs and insane incidents," Leggero explains. "And after five years of being on Chelsea Lately, where every week there’s a new thing, like, everything made the news! It’s like, 'Someone throws a water bottle at Justin Bieber’s head!' So yeah, so it’s kind of easy because there’s so much there."
Making fun of Bieber is one thing, but his closest family member also came under fire -- at the taping, there were references to his mom and abortion. On the red carpet beforehand, Justin's mom, Pattie Mallette, told ABC Radio, "I kinda braced myself for the worst imaginable possible things and feelings and I’m just here as a supportive mom."
Asked which celebrity roaster she thought would be the meanest to her little boy, she said, "Martha Stewart. I’m a little worried about Martha Stewart, I’m not gonna lie. I think Martha Stewart’s got a little bit more up her sleeve than you might imagine."
As for Stewart, she told reporters that she agreed to do the roast "in a moment of weakness" and added that she had "many, many reservations" about it. Among them: the fact that you'll see her saying "some raunchy stuff."
"Please, please everyone who knows me…I didn’t write this stuff!" says the domestic diva.
One thing that happened during the taping that you won't see Monday night are the tasteless jokes about the late Fast and Furious star Paul Walker -- they've been edited out. After the taping, Justin told reporters that he “didn’t particularly like” the jokes about Walker. He also told reporters, "I turned a lot of people off over the past few years, but I know I can still turn out good music and turn everything around."
Other celebrity roasters tonight include Pete Davidson, Ludacris, Hannibal Buress, Chris D'Elia and Jeffrey Ross.
Chuck Hodes/FOX(LOS ANGELES) — Taraji P. Henson, who plays Cookie Lyon on the hit TV series Empire, has apologized after accusing police in Glendale, California, of racially profiling her 20-year-old son, Marcel, during a traffic stop.
"I would like to publicly apologize to the officer and the Glendale Police Department. A mother's job is not easy and neither is a police officer's," Henson posted on Instagram on Friday.
"Sometimes as humans we over react without gathering all of the facts. As a mother in this case I overreacted and for that I apologize," she continued. "Thank you to that officer for being kind to my son."
Last month, Henson, 44, told Uptown magazine that her "child" had "been racially profiled." Henson told the magazine, "He was in Glendale, California and did exactly everything the cops told him to do, including letting them illegally search his car. It was bogus because they didn’t give him the ticket for what he was pulled over for."
However, footage of the October 18, 2014 incident, obtained by the Los Angeles Times, shows the officer explaining that he pulled Henson's son over for driving through a lighted crosswalk as a person was walking in it. The officer also asks whether Marcel has any illegal substances in the car, to which he admits he has marijuana but cannot find his medical prescription in the vehicle.
The officer eventually lets Henson's son off with a lesser citation. "I'm going to give you a citation for the marijuana," says the cop, explaining, "Listen, I'm not going to give you a citation for running that yellow because that will actually put a moving violation on your license and you're going to have to do traffic school and all that stuff."
"So I'm helping you out by not giving you a violation on that. All I'm going to do is take the weed from you. You can go to court and show your prescription and stuff and you can handle it that way," the cop adds.
Empire, which airs on Fox, recently wrapped up it's first season.
Fox(NEW YORK) — Hugh Jackman may be hanging up his claws for good.
The Australian actor is set to star in a third Wolverine film that will be released in 2017. Jackman hinted over the weekend that he may retire from the mutant role after that.
Jackman, 46, posted to Instagram on Saturday a photo of his hands, one of which featured Wolverine's claws. He wrote, "WOLVERINE ...ONE LAST TIME. HJ."
If he does walk away from the Wolverine character, it wouldn't be a total surprise. He told SFX magazine in 2014 regarding the Wolverine series, "If I did another one I'm 99.9 percent sure it would be the last."
Jackman previously starred in two stand-alone Wolverine films: 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine and 2013's The Wolverine. He's also played the character in several X-Men movies, including last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past.
His next Wolverine film, which is currently untitled, will open on March 3, 2017.
Photo by Tommaso Boddi/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- Angelina Jolie made her first appearance post-surgery when she attended the Kids' Choice Awards with two of her children on Saturday night.
The actress brought her daughters Shiloh and Zahara to the awards show, hugging them both when she won the "orange blimp" for Best Villain for her role in the Disney movie Maleficent.
Last week, Jolie revealed in a New York Times op-ed her decision to have a preventative surgery that removed her ovaries and Fallopian tubes after doctors discovered she tested positive for signs of early ovarian cancer. Her mother died from the same type of cancer in 2007.
Jolie underwent the preventative surgery just two years after having a preventative double mastectomy.
Jolie looked healthy and poised at the awards show, saying in her acceptance speech it was good to be different.
"Don't fit in, don't sit still, don't ever try to be less than what you are and when someone tells you that you are different, smile and hold your head up high and be proud," she said.
She ended her speech by paying homage to her evil role.
"As your villain," Jolie said, "I would say, 'Cause a little trouble. It is good for you.'"

Sony / Columbia(NEW YORK) -- The teaser trailer for Spectre, the next installment in the James Bond series, picks up right where the last film left off.
The trailer opens with the famed 007, played for the fourth time by Daniel Craig, learning some "personal effects" recovered from his ruined family estate and childhood home of Skyfall contain a dark secret of his.
The trailer features some familiar faces - like Naomie Harris, who played Moneypenny in Skyfall - as well as some franchise newcomers, including an eerily silhouetted Christoph Waltz who closes the trailer.

Photo by Brian To/Getty Images for The Lifeline Program(NEW YORK) -- Betty White's biggest regret in life involved her late husband Allen Ludden, who died from stomach cancer in 1981.
White, 93, spoke to Oprah Winfrey for Sunday's Oprah: Where Are They Now? and said that her major regret was not marrying her husband a year earlier.
They were together for 18 years before he died.
"I spent a whole year, wasted a whole year, that Allen and I could have had together, saying 'No' I wouldn't marry him," White told Oprah, referring to the year it took for her to accept Ludden's proposals. "Saying, no, I won't leave California. No, I won't move to New York. I wasted a whole year we could have had together."
She added, with a smile, "But, we made it. We finally did."
