Legendary Fashion Designer Oscar de la Renta Dies at 82


Photo by Michael Loccisano/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Legendary fashion designer Oscar De La Renta passed away on Monday at the age of 82.

A family member confirmed De La Renta's passing to ABC News. The designer had been diagnosed with cancer in 2006.

Born in the Dominican Republic in 1932, De La Renta left home at 18 to study painting in Madrid. It was there he developed a love of fashion design and began an apprenticeship with Cristóbal Balenciaga, who became his mentor, and then, landed a job with Lanvin in Paris.

"When I first arrived here in 1963, all the names on clothes were the name of [the store]," he told Gotham magazine last year. "You made your clothes, you sold them to the store, and they quickly removed the label and put the label of the store. If it was a dress at Saks Fifth Avenue, the label was Saks Fifth Avenue. Bergdorf Goodman was Bergdorf Goodman. But it was a time of transition."

In 1965, the designer launched his own label, and soon caught the eye of former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy. Other first ladies including Nancy Reagan and Hillary Clinton would follow suit, as well as a bevy of A-list stars, from Amy Adams to Sandra Bullock to Jessica Biel and countless others.

He also launched a successful bridal line, and most recently, designed Amal Clooney's wedding gown.

"George and I wanted a wedding that was romantic and elegant, and I can't imagine anyone more able than Oscar to capture this mood in a dress," she told Vogue last month. "Meeting him made the design process all the more magical, as he is so warm and such a gentleman."

The fashion designer is survived by his wife, Annette, and a son, Moises, as well as stepchildren and step-grandchildren.

De la Renta, who won a bevy of fashion awards in his lifetime, including two Council of Fashion Designers Designer of the Year Awards, a CFDA Lifetime Achievement Award and two COTY Awards, always appreciated every moment of his high-profile life.

"A huge mistake we make is forgetting that one day we will die. We think that we are going to live forever. I always say life is a little like a garden. There is a time to plant, then a time you have to weed. Just think about people you've deeply cared for. And then think of the people you wish you'd spent more time with," he told Gotham. "I always say this: Live, love and laugh."

Brad Pitt on ‘Pecking Order at Home’ with Dame Angelina Jolie


ABC/Rick Rowell(NEW YORK) -- Angelina Jolie may be an honorary dame, but that doesn’t necessarily make her the boss at home.

“Aaah, no,” Brad Pitt told Us Weekly with a laugh Sunday at the London premiere of his new film, Fury. “We have our own pecking order at home!”

Pitt recalled the recent royal reception, in which the queen of England made Jolie a dame of the British Empire -- one of the highest honors awarded by Britain -- for raising global awareness of violence against women as the co-founder of the Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative.

“It was just a pleasure and certainly one for the books,” the proud husband told Us Weekly about the Oct. 10 ceremony. “[It was] a wonderful afternoon for our family, a great honor for Angie and something we won’t forget.”

Pitt and Jolie brought their brood of six kids along for the meeting with the queen.

Because Jolie, 39, is a foreign citizen, she cannot be addressed as “dame,” and the award was given on an honorary basis.

Still, it was a significant achievement for the actress.

“To receive an honor related to foreign policy means a great deal to me, as it is what I wish to dedicate my working life to,” Jolie said in a statement. “Working on PVSI and with survivors of rape is an honor in itself. I know that succeeding in our goals will take a lifetime, and I am dedicated to it for all of mine.”

Michael Bolton Finds New Fans in Starring in Commercials as Michael Bolton


ABC/Matt Brown(NEW YORK) -- Michael Bolton is back in the studio, not to record another passionate break-up song, but to lay down tracks for a new line of greeting cards.

The ‘90s R&B icon who made us swoon with tear-jerking ballads like “How Am I Supposed to Live Without You” has launched a second career as a celebrity pitchman, selling all kinds of things from e-cards to Starbursts and Hondas.

The mullet is gone, but the pipes are as solid as ever. In all of his spots, Bolton plays a version of himself. “So far they all want me to be Michael Bolton,” the Grammy-winning artist said, laughing.

Bolton, who has sold nearly 55 million albums, clearly doesn’t need the money. He is just the latest celebrity to lend their persona to commercials.

Recently, Matthew McConaughey starred in two Lincoln car commercials and Will Ferrell became Ron Burgundy for a few Dodge Durango spots. William Shatner has also starred in commercials where he too plays an over-the-top version of himself. Not only is Shatner in on the joke, he’s cashing in. Those Priceline ads have led to new roles, including his Emmy-winning star turn on The Practice.

For Bolton, the ads have brought his career full circle. Back when he was a starving singer-songwriter, struggling to pay the bills, Bolton wrote and sang product jingles.

“’Be all you can be, get an edge on life in the Army,’” Bolton said. “That was me plus 20 great singers.” Bolton likes to joke that he has done a jingle for every drink in the picnic cooler, including spots for Coca-Cola, Pepsi, 7Up, Cherry 7Up and Dr. Pepper.

“Dr. Pepper was huge,” Bolton said, bursting into song: “’Dr. Pepper, give me the news, I got a bad case of loving you.’” Somewhere along the way, his music career took over, and Bolton remembers the moment he realized it.

“I was driving to New York, and one of my commercials comes on,” he said. “Then the commercial is off and my single comes on and now I’m in my heart.”

“I’m thinking, “This is what I’ve worked my whole life for. It’s happening,’” Bolton continued. “And just as it finishes another of my jingles comes on after it. They were bookends to my single.

He said when he heard a second jingle, he called his manager from the car.

“‘We have to stop doing the jingles.’ I told him,” Bolton said. "I don’t want people at radio trying to guess whether I’m a real singer or whether I’m a jingle guy.”

But what brought Bolton back to the commercial airwaves was a music video parody called “Jack Sparrow” that first aired on Saturday Night Live in 2011. In the skit, Bolton is working on a song with Andy Samberg and The Lonely Island, and while the guys sing about partying in the club, Bolton keeps singing about a Disney Pirates of the Caribbean fantasy. (The Walt Disney Company, which owns the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, is also the parent company of ABC News.)

Bolton said Samberg didn’t have to twist his arm to participate. He jumped at the chance.

"We met at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel and they gave us this boardroom,” he said. “We sat across from each other and I said, “Okay first of all my daughters are flipping out that I’m meeting with you guys right now.” And Andy says to me, “My mother is going insane that I’m sitting here with you!”

Through ads, Bolton can re-connect with fans who once weathered a break-up with a Michael Bolton tune, and reach their kids too.

“You are now stepping in front of an audience that record companies can’t even hope to get in front of,” he said. “There’s no comparison… Because you don’t have MTV and VH1 doing that anymore. Top 40’s not looking at us… We can’t look at them to get a new record out. It’s not realistic. It could happen, but it’s not realistic.”

Now the quirky ads have given Bolton a new way to remind his fans he’s still going strong.

How Jake Gyllenhaal Lost 30 Pounds for Latest Movie "Nightcrawler"


Open Road Films(LOS ANGELES) -- Jake Gyllenhaal's latest movie Nightcrawler is due out at the end of the month and a Halloween release date is fitting since the actor's appearance in set photos could easily be categorized as "creepy."

The Oscar-nominated actor takes on the role of Lou Bloom, a photographer who scours the night looking for horrific photos to get the most online traffic.

To take on such a role, Gyllenhaal went to the extreme.

"I made a lot of choices physically," he told Entertainment Weekly for its latest issue, adding he lost upwards of 30 pounds for the film.

Some of the actor's staples were kale salad and chewing gum to be able to drop such intense weight, he told the magazine. He also ran 15 miles each night and didn't see his friends for weeks.

"The running thing, you're pretty hungry because you're not eating a lot of food," Gyllenhaal added. "You're lonely because you're not meeting your friends for dinner. People go, 'Hey you want to meet for dinner after work?' I go, 'Well, I'm shooting all night.' 'Alright, you want to meet for lunch?' I'm like, 'I can't!' So I'm gonna go run."

Taylor Swift Reveals First Song on 1989: "Welcome to New York"


ABC/Richard Harbaugh(NEW YORK) -- Taylor Swift has revealed the first track on her new album. 

"The first song on 1989 is a song called 'Welcome to New York,'" she explained on Monday's Good Morning America.  "And I wanted to start the album with 'Welcome To New York' because New York has been an important landscape and location for the story of my life in the last couple of years," Taylor said.

Written by Taylor and Ryan Tedder,"Welcome to New York" is available tonight at midnight exclusively on iTunes, but only if you've pre-ordered 1989. "Welcome to New York" follows the release of the singles "Out of the Woods" and "Shake It Off." 

Taylor said the Big Apple definitely inspired the track. "I dreamt about moving to New York, I obsessed over moving to New York and then I did it," Taylor said. "The inspiration that I found in that city is kind of hard to describe and hard to compare to any other force of inspiration I’ve ever experienced in my life."

"It’s like an electric city and I approached moving there with such wide-eyed optimism and sort of saw it as a place of endless potential and possibilities and you can kind of hear that reflected in this music and in this first song especially," she continued.

1989 will be officially released October 27. Three days afterward, Taylor will perform live on GMA in Times Square.

Neilson Barnard/Getty Images for BMI(LOS ANGELES) -- Former American Idol contestant Joanne Borgella died Saturday after battling cancer. She was 32.

Borgella's family posted the news to her Facebook page on Saturday.

"With heavy hearts, we are deeply saddened to announce the passing of our beloved Joanne," the message read wrote. "On Saturday, October 18, 2014 at 5:45AM, Joanne Borgella Ramirez was called by the Lord to heaven. At an early age, Joanne made a choice to serve and trust the Lord; and since her diagnosis over a year ago, Joanne made a choice to also be a fighter and share her journey with the world."

The message added, "Her faith, courage and strength were unshaken throughout every obstacle she encountered. Although our family is suffering with this great loss, we find comfort in the closeness Joanne shared with the Lord. We know her spirit still shines and will continue to live on in heaven. #Godgotthis #cancerfree2014 #godisgoodallthetime. If you would like to send your condolences or for more information please feel free to email joanneborgella529@gmail.com or leave a message on her facebook fan page. If you feel so inclined, we hope you'll take the time to educate yourselves on Endometrial Cancer and support research efforts."

It was signed "The Borgella & Ramirez Family."

A few weeks ago, Borgella posted a message on Facebook saying she was having more radiation.

"Gooooood morning!! We are heading back to radiation for 2 procedures!! God js with us!! I have lots to fill you in on.. The presence of The Lord is here.. Prayers up!!! I love you guys #GodsGotThis #ThePowerofPrayer #Faith #IWillbeCancerFree2014 #JoanneBorgella," she posted.

In a video posted last October, she revealed that her cancer started in her throat and spread to her chest.

Borgella competed on the seventh season of Idol in 2008, where she finished in the top 24. Before that, she won Mo'Nique's Fat Chance show in 2005.  Borgella had also been featured on the cast of NUVOtv's show Curvy Girls.

Julia Roberts Honored at "Pretty Woman" Hotel for Humanitarian Work


ABC/Rick Rowell(LOS ANGELES) -- Julia Roberts was back at the iconic Regent Beverly Wilshire in Los Angeles Friday night, where she famously filmed Pretty Woman 25 years ago.

This time, however, the leading lady wasn't gracing the hotel to rendezvous with Richard Gere. Instead, she was accepting the Humanitarian Award from GLSEN, an organization that aims to prevent bullying against members of the LGBT community in schools.

Before the 2014 GLSEN Respect Awards, Good Morning America sat down with Roberts, 46, along with five young GLSEN ambassadors -- Mark Pino, Emery Vela, Peter Finucane-Terlop, Ben Espejo, and Ariana Thornton -- to talk about bullying.

"Why is this such an important issue for you and for your family?," ABC News' Amy Robach asked Roberts.

"I think for my family, because these are the heroes that are leading the way so that my children can go to school really unencumbered by this conversation," the actress explained of the five ambassadors. "You guys are the trailblazers. The future is really riding on people like this."

When asked whether Roberts and each ambassador could summarize how bullying has made them feel in one word, they all had poignant yet similar answers.

"I'm going to start with my own experience and say that bullying, when I have been bullied when I was younger, it made me feel insignificant," Roberts said.



"I would say it has made me feel silenced," Vela, a high school freshman from Denver, Colorado, who identifies as a straight-trans man, added.

"Dehumanized," Pino, a high school junior from Linwood, New Jersey, who identifies as gay, recalled.

"I want to say alone," said Espejo, a high school senior from Buena Park, California, who identifies as gay.

"Devaluating," Finucane-Terlop, a high school junior from Tampa, Florida, who identifies as gay, agreed.

"I would say ignored," said Thornton, a high school junior from Midland, Michigan, who identifies as pansexual.

Each of them also had strong opinions about what they would change in their schools to promote acceptance, if given the chance.

"I feel like a majority of the bullying that happens, or any other major issue, mainly occurs from just ignorance," Vela said. "You know, it's not people intentionally trying to be discriminatory. It's just they don't know."

"Teachers surprisingly need to be more sensitive with their lessons," added Pino, pointing out that it's not just students, but teachers and administration as well, who need to be cognizant of the LGBT community. "I've had teachers go on and talk about, ‘Oh guys, this is how you date a girl.’ [But] it doesn’t ever occur to them that there could be LGBT."

Roberts, as a mother of three, said the most disturbing thing to her is the "anonymous aspect of it that I think gives this sort of courage to people to be hateful as a sport. It's become like a game. And it's not a game. It's not funny. There's nothing brave or courageous about anonymously writing unkind things."

Roberts says she tells her children. "'Remember who you are. Be impeccable in every way that you represent our family in the day.'"

"Because even to be passive," she added, "to be a bystander, is to be absolutely as wrong as the person who is standing in the front of the line of cruelty. Even if this isn't your friend, even if this isn't your cause, we're still all human kind. Everybody’s just trying to get through the day the best they can."

Allison Williams Says Flying Lessons for "Peter Pan Live" Musical Are 'Fun' But 'Uncomfortable'


Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Allison Williams is well on her to flying into homes when she becomes Peter Pan for NBC's upcoming live musical production. Still, learning how to fly like a boy who never wants to grow up isn't easy.

The Girls star, who began flying lessons in August, told People magazine that being airborne is "about as fun as you can imagine."

Williams said the harness "becomes uncomfortable really quickly, but that first moment when you are lifted off the ground is just utter bliss."

"It's a shame we were not built to be airborne," she added.

NBC will air the musical Peter Pan Live!, also starring Christopher Walken as Captain Hook, on Dec. 4.

Peter Pan Live! is NBC's follow-up to its hit production of The Sound of Music, which starred Carrie Underwood.

Former "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" Actor Arrested over Boise Hotel Disturbance


Paul Warner/Getty Images(BOISE, Idaho) -- Nicholas Brendon, an actor best known for his role as Xander Harris on TV's Buffy the Vampire Slayer, was arrested Friday night in Boise, Idaho, following an incident at a hotel.

Boise police say witnesses had reported a disturbance in a hotel lobby. Officers who arrived at the scene say Brendon showed signs of intoxication and refused commands to stay seated while they tried to speak with witnesses.

The 43-year-old actor was arrested for resisting and obstructing officers after he allegedly continued to try to walk away. He was also arrested on a count of malicious injury to property after hotel staff said he broke a decorative dish.

Brendon was booked into Ada County Jail and has since posted bond.

A post on his Facebook and Twitter pages reads, "Nick is doing well. He sends thanks and appreciates all of you for your love, support and positive vibes."

The actor was in town for the local Tree City Comic Con.

Aside from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Brendon's credits include the TV series Criminal Minds and Private Practice.

"Glee's" Matthew Morrison Ties the Knot in Hawaii


Michael Loccisano/Getty Images for The Weinstein Company(LOS ANGELES) -- Glee star Matthew Morrison is officially off the market after tying the knot with his longtime girlfriend Saturday on the Hawaiian island of Maui, his rep tells People magazine.

The rep says the 35-year-old actor and his fiancée, actress Renee Puente, 31, exchanged vows at an intimate ceremony in front of 50 friends and family members on a private estate on Maui's southwest shore.

Morrison sported a custom Brooks Brothers tuxedo for the occasion, while the bride wore a one-of-a-kind Gustavo Cadile gown.

The evening included a hula dance Puente performed especially for Morrison who then joined her in a couples' version. The newlyweds also performed a duet of Laura Benanti's "Starry Eyed/Video Games."

Morrison and Puente began dating in 2011 and got engaged a year ago.

Morrison plays teacher Will Schuester on Glee, which returns for its sixth and final season in 2015.

Medical Examiner's Office Confirms Recovered Body Is Missing Actress


Charley Gallay/WireImage(SEATTLE) -- The King County Medical Examiner's Office confirmed Friday that the body found in the Seattle suburb of Auburn, Washington, was that of missing actress Misty Upham.

According to The Seattle Times, the medical examiner's office announced Upham died Oct. 5 -- the same day her family called police to report she was suicidal. They reported her missing the next day.

The cause of death remains under investigation, but Upham's family believes she did not commit suicide. In a statement posted on Facebook, the family says, "We believe she ran into the wooded area behind her apartment to hide from the police. The area in question has a hidden drop off and evidence suggests that she slipped and fell off of the steep embankment when she tried to get out of a view from the road. She simply did not see the drop off."

The family states that Upham was afraid of Auburn police due to an incident prior to her disappearance in which she was allegedly mistreated by officers. They also argue that Auburn police could have been more helpful after she went missing.

Upham was found Thursday in a wooded area, near the White River.

The 32-year-old Native American actress appeared in such films as August: Osage County, Frozen River and Django Unchained.

Letterman's Cue-Card Man Fired After Confrontation with Staff Writer


Brad Barket /Getty Images(NEW YORK) David Letterman is no longer taking his cues from Tony Mendez.

Mendez, the longtime cue-card man for Letterman's Late Show who's a familiar face to viewers, has been fired after he physically confronted a staff writer.

In an interview with the New York Post, the 69-year-old Mendez says he grabbed writer Bill Scheft by the shirt and "got my face in his face" during an altercation that occurred Oct. 9, before a taping of the CBS late-night program. He says he was fired a few days later.

Mendez says he'd been upset since the day before, when Scheft interrupted him as they were working with Letterman in the host's dressing room. Mendez, who claims Scheft was "always undermining me," recalls saying, “I know what I’m doing. Get off my back.”

When Letterman responded, “Tony, your sour disposition isn’t helping,” Mendez says, he countered, "'You’re the one who has the sour disposition, motherf***er.'" Mendez clarifies that he and Letterman often casually exchanged profanities.

Mendez says Letterman's reaction hurt his feelings, but "then I realized that this is what Bill was doing. He was trying to create a wedge between us so Dave would think I was an a**hole.”

Mendez calls Letterman "the best, most generous boss" he's ever had, but adds the late-night host probably didn't realize the tension between him and Scheft.

The New York Post reports Mendez has been offered his full salary and health insurance until Letterman leaves the Late Show sometime next year.

Jay Leno Receives Mark Twain Prize for American Humor


Jeff Riedel/NBC(WASHINGTON) -- Jay Leno was celebrated in Washington, D.C., Sunday night as this year's recipient of the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor.

The award is presented annually by the Kennedy Center in recognition of people "who have had an impact on American society in ways similar to" its namesake.

The event featured appearances by Jerry Seinfeld, Seth Meyers, Chelsea Handler, Wanda Sykes, Garth Brooks, former Tonight Show bandleader Kevin Eubanks and Leno's Tonight Show successor, Jimmy Fallon, according to USA Today.

Fallon called Leno "a trail-blazing comedian" who showed him "that hard work does pay off."

In accepting the honor, Leno thanked his friends and his wife of 34 years, Mavis. "Most people get to hear the good jokes -- she had to hear all the stupid ones that didn't work," Leno remarked.

Leno said he would "treasure" the honor. "This means a tremendous amount to me. I am so touched by this," Leno added.

The show was taped and will air as Jay Leno: The Kennedy Center Mark Twain Prize Nov. 23 on PBS.

Recent Mark Twain Prize recipients include Carol Burnett, Ellen DeGeneres, Will Ferrell, Tina Fey and Bill Cosby.

It was announced last week that Leno will return to TV in 2015 with a CNBC show titled Jay Leno's Garage, focusing on the car collectors' market.

Pitbull Serves as Guest Judge on Monday Night's "Dancing with the Stars"


ABC/Matt Brown(LOS ANGELES) -- Mr. Worldwide comes to Dancing with the Stars on Monday night.

Not only will Pitbull perform his hit single, "Fireball," he'll also serve as guest judge alongside Julianne Hough, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli. The nine remaining couples will dance to a mix of his hits and favorite songs.

The Pitbull-themed show comes one week after the stars temporarily switched pro partners. They're now back with their usual pros, but it may be too late for Michael Waltrip, who was at the bottom of the leader board last week.

The NASCAR driver and owner, who's reunited with Emma Slater, is worried that he may be eliminated on Monday night. Yet he recently vowed to ABC News Radio, "[W]e're going to keep working and we're going to try to get better and better and hopefully people will vote for us because we're having fun."

Mean Girls star Jonathan Bennett struggled last week, too. His pro partner, Allison Holker, says they're in a tough position, but, she adds, "I'm here for the challenge and I'm very excited about it and I'm very confident that Jonathan and I can make a turnaround."

One former Dancing with the Stars contestant is pulling for the middle-aged competitors. Fifty-two-year-old Karate Kid star Ralph Macchio says he's rooting for the "not-so-young guys," because he jokes, "if you're under 40 you're cheating!"

Macchio, who finished fourth during the show's 12th season in 2011, declares, "You got to give some big props -- especially right now with Alfonso Ribeiro. Coming out, doing 'The Carlton' thing -- went viral the next day. ...I gotta root for Lea Thompson. She’s in my, that's my age wheelhouse."

Dancing with the Stars airs Monday night at 8 p.m. Eastern time.
