Donald Trump Completes ALS Ice Bucket Challenge


Stephen Lovekin/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Add Donald Trump to the list of celebrities taking part in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

Trump -- nominated by ex-boxer Mike Tyson, World Wrestling Entertainment Chairman Vince McMahon and The Simpsons patriarch, Homer Simpson -- completed the challenge with the help of Miss Universe, Gabriela Isler, and Miss USA, Nia Sanchez.

The 68-year-old business mogul also ended the long-running debate as to whether or not his hair is really his own.

In a video taped atop New York's City's Trump Tower, The Donald announces, "I've been called out by everybody for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge -- Homer Simpson, Mike Tyson, Vince McMahon -- like everybody is going crazy over this thing." He adds, "I guess they wanna see if whether or not this is my real hair, which it is.”

He then challenges his sons Donald and Eric, as well as President Obama. The president already passed on the challenge earlier this month when he was called out by Ethel Kennedy, the 86-year-old widow of Robert Kennedy.

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has raised more than $88 million for Lou Gehrig's Disease.

Movie Review: "As Above/So Below" (Rated R)


Universal(NEW YORK) -- The found footage horror flick As Above/So Below revolves around Scarlet (Perdita Weeks), an archeologist of sorts who speaks multiple languages -- two of them dead -- and is a black belt in Krav Maga.  Totally believable, right?  Scarlet's immediate goal in life is to fulfill her late father’s quest to find the Philosopher’s Stone, and she won’t let anything stop her...not even a silly thing like death.

When Scarlet discovers that the stone may be hidden in the catacombs of Paris, she recruits a team to accompany her on her underground descent, including a few people who know their way around the place. There, they encounter human remains, a guy who used to live in the catacombs but who disappeared two years ago, plenty of sudden, loud noises, and dozens of other obvious signs that they should leave before they all come to a horrible and violent end.

Then, there’s the most disturbing sign something is amiss: objects and people from each member of the team's past begin to pop up. There’s a spooky piano, an even spookier dead brother and a burning car from an accident.  All of this, mind you, is taking place nearly a thousand feet under the streets of Paris.  Yes, it’s pretty creepy, but perhaps no more creepy than riding that New York City subway line you recently found out is infested with bedbugs.

Like so many horror films, the decisions made by these characters are preposterous -- nearly as preposterous as the notion that you are watching found footage from a camera that was left behind with no hope of ever getting it back. I’m beginning to think it’s called “found" footage because people FIND it annoying. There’s nothing new here; aside from a couple of claustrophobic and aurally frightening moments, As Above/So Below is more boring than it is scary.

Two out of five stars.

Joan Rivers Hospitalized for Cardiac Arrest


Charles Sykes/Bravo

(NEW YORK) -- Joan Rivers is "resting comfortably" after she was hospitalized Thursday, her daughter said.

"I want to thank everyone for the overwhelming love and support for my mother," Melissa Rivers said in a statement released by Mount Sinai Hospital. "She is resting comfortably and is with our family. We ask that you continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers."

A law enforcement source told ABC News that Rivers was rushed to Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City after an emergency call that she was in cardiac arrest.

The New York City Fire Department transported a woman matching Rivers' description after receiving a call that the woman was in cardiac arrest at an Upper East Side clinic, Yorkville Endoscopy, an FDNY source said. The law enforcement source confirmed the woman was Rivers.

TMZ reported that Rivers was having surgery on her vocal chords at the clinic.

Later on Thursday, E! Online tweeted that Rivers was in "critical but stable condition."

Rivers, 81, had been hard at work of late, co-hosting her E! TV show, Fashion Police and doing stand-up comedy. According to Ticketmaster, she had seven shows planned across the U.S. for November.

"Ignore aging: Comedy is the one place it doesn’t matter. It matters in singing because the voice goes. It matters certainly in acting because you’re no longer the sexpot. But in comedy, if you can tell a joke, they will gather around your deathbed," she wrote in The Hollywood Reporter in 2012. "If you’re funny, you’re funny. Isn’t that wonderful?"

Britney Spears Is Single After Boyfriend Reportedly Cheated on Her


Jason Merritt/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Britney Spears is newly single -- reportedly because her boyfriend cheated on her.

Brit tweeted on Thursday, "Ahhhh the single life!" Coincidentally or not, she posted that comment around the same time TMZ published a story claiming David Lucado was videotaped making out with another woman earlier this month.

Reportedly, Brit dumped her boyfriend after learning about the footage, which TMZ says is being shopped around.

A rep for David tells the website, "David is very, very in love with Britney. This is unfortunate and he hopes that it all works out." Unfortunately for David, it didn't work out -- Brit's rep confirms to Billboard that the pop star is single.

Britney dated David for a year and a half. Their relationship began not long after her engagement to her then-agent, Jason Trawick, ended in January of 2013.

Blake Lively Details Her Encounter with Angry Bees


Ethan Miller/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Blake Lively's 27th birthday celebration this past week didn't get off to a great start. The former Gossip Girl star, whose birthday was Monday, says she was attacked by an angry swarm of bees.

In the latest post on her lifestyle blog, Preserve, Lively writes she was shooting content for Preserve when she suddenly "felt an electric shock of energy."

Lively continues, "[W]as it excitement that I was about to turn another year older? Was it nerves? Why did it feel like agony? I like getting older...I think. But this felt terrible.”

Lively then writes, “Does your butt quite suddenly (and painfully) deflate when you turn 27? Because mine hurt like hell…then my neck, back, legs and forehead. And oh my hands! They were shriveling. It felt like I was being shot by dozens of tiny invisible darts. I felt like the Wicked Witch, melting, melting, burning, melting.”

“I wasn’t being greeted by the onset of spontaneous aging, but rather a full-fledged bee day. Attacked. All over. Everywhere,” she adds.

Lively says she doesn’t know what kind of bees stung her. She says the attack left her "shaken" and "swollen."

She concludes the post by musing, “It took a swarm of bees to remind me that a b-day is nothing but a number. Each day I choose my age.”

Lively will next be seen starring opposite Harrison Ford in the upcoming drama, The Age of Adeline, scheduled to hit theaters in 2015.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt Married Saturday in France


Kevin Winter/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are now husband and wife, a spokesperson for the couple confirms.

The couple tied the knot in Chateau Miraval, France last Saturday in a private, civil ceremony attended by friends and family.

Pitt, 50, and Jolie, 39, announced their engagement in 2012.  A spokesperson says they obtained a marriage license from a judge in California, who also conducted the marriage ceremony in France.  

Jolie and Pitt's children were participants in the ceremony, said the spokesperson. The bride was walked down the aisle by sons Maddox, 12, and Pax, who's 10.  Daughters Zahara and Vivienne, 9 and 5 years old, respectively, threw flower petals, while daughter Shiloh, 7, and son Knox, 5, served as ring bearers.

Husband of Whitney Houston's Daughter Arrested for DUI


Imeh Akpanudosen/WireImage(ROSWELL, Ga.) -- Bobbi Kristina Brown's husband has been arrested and charged with DUI, police said.

Nick Gordon attempted to change lanes in a BMW sedan Thursday morning in Roswell, Georgia, when the vehicle struck a curb and overturned, police told ABC News. Afterward, Gordon was arrested for DUI, failure to maintain a lane and driving with a suspended license.

Brown, 21, announced last year that she was married to her childhood friend, Gordon, who had a longtime relationship with her family. They announced their engagement in 2012.

This is not the first time Gordon has been in trouble with the law. In 2012, he was arrested for reckless driving and speeding.

A rep for Brown has not yet responded to a request for comment.

Homer Simpson Accepts the Ice Bucket Challenge


FOX via Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Even animated characters are accepting the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

In a new video released online, a shirtless Homer Simpson takes on the challenge. He nominates his neighbor Ned Flanders -- twice -- his co-worker Lenny and Donald Trump before spilling a glass of water on his head.

However, Bart then dumps gallons of water, plus penguins, a bear, hockey players, a snowman, Santa Claus, an ice cream truck and more, on his unsuspecting dad from a helicopter.  

The 26th season of The Simpsons premieres on Fox on September 28. You can catch up on previous seasons by tuning in to the ongoing Simpsons marathon on FXX, which concludes on Labor Day.

Elsewhere in celebrity Ice Bucket Challenge news, Bridesmaids actor Chris O'Dowd got drenched in a video in which he nominated "Baby O'Porter," thus revealing that he and wife Dawn O'Porter are expecting a child. Dawn is seen pouring water on her baby bump.

So far, the Ice Bucket Challenge has raised $94.3 million for the ALS Association.

WATCH: Reese WitherspoonÂ’s Inspiring Message to Boy with Cancer


Jason Merritt/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Reese Witherspoon transformed into “Pink Lady” Elle Woods from her hit movie Legally Blonde to send a hopeful message to a four-year-old boy battling cancer.

The Oscar-winning actress sent the message to four-year-old Will after learning that he was a big fan of Legally Blonde.

“This is for one of the strongest little four-year-olds I can imagine. Will -- I hear that you’re fighting so hard and strong against cancer and that in the hospital you’ve been watching a lot of Legally Blonde and loving it. I hope it makes you laugh!”

Witherspoon captioned an Instagram photo of herself holding a sign with the hashtag “Team Will.”

“I wanted you to know that I made this sign in your honor -- and I’m sending a big big hug and my hope and prayers. Just know -- I’m a really big fan of YOURS!” Witherspoon wrote. “PS anyone else – feel free to make your own sign for Will and post it with the hashtag #TeamWill so he can see it. ...I’m sure he’d love that!”

In addition, the mother of three made a short YouTube video titled “The Pink Lady’s Message To Will.”

Kimmel Stages "Friends" Reunion with Aniston, Cox and Kudrow


ABC/Randy Holmes(LOS ANGELES) -- On Wednesday night's Jimmy Kimmel Live! Jimmy Kimmel reunited Friends castmates Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow -- on a rebuilt set from the sitcom, no less -- for a staged reading of Kimmel's Friends fan fiction.

Kimmel started subtly, by asking Aniston if she'd do a favor for him, and increasingly upped the ante by first handing her a script, then unveiling the rebuilt stage.

"What? What is this?!" Aniston asked incredulously.

"This is an exact replica...I actually spent $80,000 making it," Kimmel said. "To the 'T' every detail is correct."

Jennifer began reading, but balked when Kimmel pulled out a "Rachel wig." Aniston said, "I've gotta have boundaries."

Kimmel played Ross, and it became obvious why -- he wanted a love scene with Rachel. The crowd howled when Cox entered as Monica, who, like Rachel, was also scripted to compliment Ross' lovemaking -- as was Kudrow, who was also met with a roar from the crowd.

Eventually, we learn Kimmel had "killed off" Joey and Chandler in order to have all the actresses to himself. However, before the scene in which they "all make out," the actresses walk off, with Aniston saying, "Make love to yourself, Jimmy."

In other Friends news, the upcoming 20th anniversary of the sitcom's premiere will be honored with a pop-up replica of Central Perk -- the coffee shop where Ross, Rachel, Monica, Chandler, Joey and Phoebe spent countless hours. The replica will open in the SoHo neighborhood of Manhattan. It will be open to the public from Sept. 17 to Oct. 18, and will feature free coffee, special appearances by the actor who played the barista Gunther, James Michael Tyler, as well as contests and more.  Friends premiered on NBC on Sept. 22, 1994.

"Sopranos" Creator Says Comments on Tony Soprano's Fate Were 'Misconstrued'


Craig Blankenhorn/HBO(NEW YORK) -- It appears we still don't know the answer to the question that's been lingering on the minds of Sopranos fans for seven years: Did Tony Soprano die in the finale? Thought it seemed that series creator David Chase had cleared up the matter in a recent interview, he now says his comments were misconstrued.

The acclaimed HBO drama famously wrapped in 2007 with a fade-to-black ending in a diner, accompanied by the Journey hit "Don't Stop Believin.'"

The scene seemingly left open the possibility that Soprano was killed. Chase was asked in a recent interview with Vox.com whether Soprano died. This was his response, in the words of writer Martha P. Nochimson: "He shook his head 'no.' And he said simply, 'No he isn't.'"

However, Chase's rep released the following statement Wednesday night: "A journalist for Vox misconstrued what David Chase said in their interview. To simply quote David as saying, 'Tony Soprano is not dead,' is inaccurate. There is a much larger context for that statement and as such, it is not true."

The statement continues, "As David Chase has said numerous times on the record, 'Whether Tony Soprano is alive or dead is not the point.' To continue to search for this answer is fruitless. The final scene of The Sopranos raises a spiritual question that has no right or wrong answer."

The actor who played Tony Soprano, James Gandolfini, died last year in Italy of a heart attack at the age of 51.
