Ben Affleck to Live in Brooke Shields’ House

Peter Kramer/NBC(LOS ANGELES) — Ben Affleck is on the move following the announcement that he’s splitting with his wife of 10 years,Jennifer Garner.

The Gone Girl star will rent Brooke Shields’ home in Los Angeles’ Pacific Palisades after his family returns from Atlanta, where Garner recently began shooting her upcoming film, Miracles From Heaven, according to the New York Post.

The move, however, is expected to be just a temporary arrangement until the estranged couple finish renovating the 8,800-square-foot Pacific Palisades home they bought for $17.5 million in 2009. Sources tell the newspaper they “don’t want to live in a construction zone.”

An additional structure is being built on the property, and it’s speculated that Affleck will eventually reside there.

In spite of their impending divorce, Ben and Jennifer have stated that they will live on the same property in the Pacific Palisades once they return home, but not in the same house, as they continue to co-parent their three kids: daughters Violet and Seraphina and son Samuel.

Shields’ five-bedroom, five-bathroom home is conveniently just a few houses away from Affleck and Garner’s property, sources tell the Post. Shields and her husband, writer Chris Henchy, put the mansion up for rent in June for $30,000 a month.

Kourtney Kardashian Reportedly Seeking Sole Custody of Kids Following Split with Scott Disick

Photo by: Timothy White/ E!(LOS ANGELES) — Following Kourtney Kardashian’s split with longtime partner Scott Disick, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star is seeking sole custody of the couple’s three young children, a source tells Us Weekly.

Kourtney, 36, is determined to protect her kids — Mason, five, Penelope, three, and Reign, seven months — from Disick’s downward spiral, fueled by alcohol and drugs, according to the insider, and she’s met with top Hollywood divorce attorney Laura Wasser.

When it comes to the kids, a Kardashian pal tells the magazine, “She knows being with [Laura] is what’s in their best interest. There’s no turning back now and she is going full steam ahead with figuring out an agreement.”

The estranged couple doesn’t have a formal custody arrangement, but sources tell the magazine a battle over the kids would be surprising. “Scott’s friends don’t think he’ll challenge Kourtney,” notes one insider.

Adds another source close to the couple, Scott “doesn’t act like a dad at all when he’s partying.”

Kourtney isn’t the first member of the Kardashian clan to seek Wasser’s help.

In early 2013, the attorney held Kim Kardashian’s hand while heading into a meeting with her husband of 72 days, Kris Humphries.

Later that year, Wasser filed divorce documents on behalf of Khloé Kardashian in her split from Lamar Odom.

Bill Cosby’s Lawyer Speaks: Volume of Accusations ‘Does Not Make It True’

Douglas Gorenstein/NBC(NEW YORK) — For the first time, Bill Cosby attorney Monique Pressley is speaking publicly about the sexual assault accusations against her client.

“The sheer volume or number of people who are saying a particular thing does not make it true,” Pressley said on Wednesday’s Good Morning America.

Over two dozen women have accused the comedian of drugging and sexually assaulting them. Cosby has never formally been charged with sexual assault.

When asked if she feels all of the women are lying, Pressley responded, “I’m not making conclusions, and you know that I can’t, about whether someone is lying or not. What I am saying is that Mr. Cosby has denied the accusations that have been lodged thus far.”

Earlier this week ABC News obtained the full deposition from a 2005 civil case in which Cosby spoke about his affair with former Temple University employee Andrea Constand. The documents also reveal Cosby admitted to relationships with other women, including Beth Ferrier, Theresa Serignese, Shawn Thompson and Paige Young.

Pressley said admitting to relationships with these women doesn’t imply guilt in regards to the sexual assault allegations. “What we’re looking at now is a situation where we started with a man, who had not been charged with a crime, who has not been convicted of a crime, but instead has been accused of criminal activity,” said Pressley.

They attorney also said the media is taking statements from the deposition out of context, such as whenCosby admitted to procuring drugs for use in having sex with women.

“What we’re seeing so far are headlines that are grabbing one excerpt or two and then misinterpreting them,” Pressley declared. “When the deposition said that there was use of Quaaludes, which was done often in the ’70s. It was considered a party drug called disco biscuits and it was something that was used frequently, not just by Mr. Cosby, but other entertainers.”

“America’s Got Talent” Recap: The ‘Judge Cuts’ Continue with Seven More Acts

Peter Kramer/NBC(NEW YORK) — America’s Got Talent continued its “Judge Cuts” on Tuesday. Howard Stern, Heidi Klum, Mel B and Howie Mandel continued the four-week process of picking 36 acts for the live performance shows. This week, singer Michael Bublé – invited by Heidi — joined the regular panel and got to use the “Golden Buzzer” for his favorite act, sending them to Radio City Music Hall without any consultation from the AGT judges.

Only seven out of the 20 acts that performed on Tuesday’s show were allowed to move on to the next round. They were dance troupe DM Nation, singer Daniella Mass, musical duo The CraigLewis Band, puppet act Ira and his mother Mirriam, dancer Benjamin Yonattan, ladder balancer Uzayer Novruzov andSelected of God Choir.

Actor/comedian Marlon Wayans joins the panel next week.

Here’s a rundown of some of Tuesday’s highlights:

Twenty-three-year-old singer Daniella Mass performed “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina,” from the Broadway show Evita, in Spanish and English. Bublé complimented the singer in Spanish. Stern noted Mass’ voice was “second to none.” Klum called the performance “incredible.”

Nerdy puppet Ira sang Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On” to Mel B, backed on guitar by his stage mother, Mirriam – also a puppet. She explained to the panel that she told Ira “get it on” means “get ice cream.” What followed were a series of double entendres from Ira, telling the former Spice Girl he knows a nice place where they can “get it on” and asking her if she likes “vanilla.” When Heidi complained she was jealous the puppet paid more attention to Mel B, he invited Klum to “get in on the act.” Mel responded by saying she would love to get it on with Ira. Klum called him “loveable and cute.” Michael noted it was easy to “fall for” the puppet.

Blind dancer Benjamin Yonattan, 14, suffers from retinal dystrophy, but still manages to impress and inspire people with his ballet and acrobatic moves. Howie called Yonattan’s routine “uplifting and heartbreaking.” Mel B noted the teen was having difficulty balancing, but applauded his perseverance. Bublé called Benjamin “inspiring.” Howard also praised him for performing on the AGT stage, instead of hiding in his room. Benjamin advances to the next round.

Uzayer Novruzov, a Russian-born acrobat, performed stunts using a freestanding ladder. Mandel noted Uzayer was “what we celebrate on America’s Got Talent,” adding he could watch him “for hours.” Klum added he “puts a big smile on everyone’s face.” Bublé called the act “exceptional,” but confessed he thought he would be “part of a YouTube video where a man falls to his death.” Novruzov makes it to the next round of competition.

The CraigLewis Band brought the judges to their feet with their performance of Mary J. Blige’s “I’m Goin’ Down” After agonizing over it for a while, Bublé used his Golden Buzzer for the act, moving the duo straight through to Radio City Music Hall. His only reservation about pushing the button was that he felt certain they’d go through without his help, and wanted to save it for another act. The guys advance to the live rounds.

Canadian precision dance troupe DM Nation brought several members of the judging panel to their feet, including Bublé, a fellow Canadian who noted he was proud they were from the same country. Michael applauded the team’s “synchronicity,” declaring the routine was “magnifique.” Howie called it “girl power.” They move on to the next round.

Selected of God Choir surprised everyone with a version of the Destiny’s Child song “Survivor.” Stern noted they “took an act that was good and made it great.” Buble called it “beautiful and powerful.”

Some acts that reached the end of the road included Dr. Danger’s All Stars, a group of daredevils that wowed the judges during their audition, but failed to impress with Tuesday’s stunt that featured one of them riding a motorcycle through fire. Stern and Mandel buzzed them, both agreeing the act was “underwhelming.” Bublé, however, disagreed, noting the danger involved in the stunt.

Ryan Shaw has come close to realizing his dream “many times,” signing a record deal and earning Grammy Award nominations. His dream of winning the big prize on America’s Got Talent also ended in disappointment on Tuesday. Ryan sang Bonnie Raitt’s “I Can’t Make You Love Me.” Bublé noted Ryan had the strongest voice he’d heard in the competition so far, adding he’s “got the goods.” His only complaint was that he would’ve loved to have heard the singer tackle something that would “get the place roaring.”

Magician Aiden Sinclair turned his life around after serving ten years in prison for a number of crimes. His card trick had Howie asking, “Were you released from prison or did you escape?” Howard called Sinclair a “solid act,” noting he’s always excited to see a magician come up on stage and “wow” them. Mel B declared she was “mind-boggled.” Bublé said Aiden should call the routine the “Shawshank Redemption.” In spite of the praise, Sinclair was sent home.

Nerves got the better of Scott Heierman, who performed standup comedy in drag. After a great audition, he went blank during Tuesday’s routine and couldn’t finish. It was the end of the road for Scott.

Former showgirl Shirley Claire, 87, impressed the judges with her version of Frank Sinatra’s “The Best Is Yet to Come.” Bublé noted it was a tough song to sing, adding the octogenarian was “beautiful.” However, it wasn’t enough to stand up to the other singers performing on Tuesday’s show.

America’s Got Talent airs again next Tuesday at 8 p.m. Eastern time on NBC.

President Obama on “The Daily Show”: Jon Stewart ‘Cannot Leave’

PictureGroup(NEW YORK) — President Barack Obama wants Jon Stewart to remain as host of The Daily Show.

Obama made his seventh appearance — his third as president — with Stewart on the Comedy Central program Tuesday night. “I can’t believe that you’re leaving before me,” he quipped. “In fact, I’m issuing a new executive order that Jon Stewart cannot leave the show. It’s being challenged in the courts.”

Stewart responded, “For me, this is a states’ rights issue.”

Of course, Obama addressed more serious issues, such as the recent Iran nuclear deal. He joked that critics think if former Vice President Dick Cheney had been involved in the negotiations, “everything would be fine.”

“What we are doing is making sure that this critical problem is being resolved and recognizing that we’re still going to have more work to do,” he said of the deal.

He briefly touched upon Donald Trump, the controversial GOP presidential candidate to whom Stewart referred as the “future president.” Obama commented, “I’m sure the Republicans are enjoying Mr. Trump’s current dominance as the front-runner.”

“Anything that makes them look less crazy,” Stewart added.

Stewart says goodbye to The Daily Show on August 6. He’ll be replaced by Trevor Noah in late September.
