Who will make it to the finals in 'Dancing with the Stars'?

Posted: 08:05 AM ET

The final four couples hit the floor in 'Dancing with the Stars' last night – who do you think will make it to the finals?

The 10 score paddles were flying on Monday's Dancing With The Stars semi-finals as the four remaining celebs each performed two dances and moved closer to the mirror ball trophy.  Pussycat Doll – and self-proclaimed perfectionist – Nicole Scherzinger earned a 30 on her first dance and a 29 on her second for a 59.

She's tied with Olympic skater Evan Lysacek, who proved he isn't a robot by emoting like crazy on his dances to also earn a 59.

Erin Andrews glittered in blue and then in gold for her two dances and has a total of 56.

Chad Ochocinco, who went shirtless for his samba, is at the bottom of the pack with a 52. He seems destined to go home next.

Sandra Bullock adopts a boy; People magazine has the exclusive!!

Posted: 08:05 AM ET

Via People

In public, Sandra Bullock has been through the best and worst of times this year – from winning her first Oscar to enduring the breakup of her marriage. In private, she was quietly keeping a joyful secret – his name is Louis, and he is her newborn son.

Bullock reveals exclusively in the new issue of PEOPLE that she is the proud mother of Louis Bardo Bullock, a 3½-month-old boy, born in New Orleans. "It's like he's always been a part of our lives," Bullock, 45, says. She and husband Jesse James, 41, began the adoption process four years ago and brought Louis home in January but decided to keep the news to themselves until after the Oscars. Their close friends and family – including James's children Sunny, 6, Jesse Jr., 12, and Chandler, 15 – were essential in keeping the adoption a secret.

Then, just 10 days after the March 7 Oscars, Bullock and James separated following reports James had cheated. Bullock says she is now adopting as a single parent.

Jesse James checks into treatment facility

Posted: 08:17 AM ET

(PEOPLE.com) - With his marriage to Sandra Bullock in crisis and his family's future on the line, Jesse James is seeking professional help, his rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.

"Jesse checked himself into a treatment facility to deal with personal issues," his rep said in a statement. "He realized that this time was crucial to help himself, help his family and help save his marriage."

While the rep did not specify the type of treatment facility, one source confirms he checked in on March 26, and that it was "100 percent his own idea" - and not the result of an ultimatum from Bullock.

A cheating scandal that exploded on March 15 has sent James' nearly five-year marriage to Bullock, 45, into a tailspin with claims that he had affairs with at least four women. Bullock has moved out of the family home and is considering her options, another source says.

Before seeking treatment, James, 40, spent much of the last two weeks sticking to a routine, hanging out with his three kids and dropping them off at school and burying himself at work at West Coast Choppers in Long Beach, California.

Ricky Martin says he's 'a fortunate homosexual man'

Posted: 08:55 AM ET

Pop singer Ricky Martin declared publicly this week what he avoided discussing for years: He is gay.

"I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man," Martin wrote on his official Web site. "I am very blessed to be who I am."

A decade ago, when ABC's Barbara Walters pressed Martin to address rumors about his sexuality, he declined to confirm or deny them. "I just don't feel like it," Martin said.

Now, Martin wrote, "these years in silence and reflection made me stronger and reminded me that acceptance has to come from within and that this kind of truth gives me the power to conquer emotions I didn't even know existed."

The 39-year-old Puerto Rican native started off with the Latin boy band Menudo before launching his solo career in 1991.

His song "Livin' La Vida Loca" rose to the top of the music charts in 1999 and propelled Martin to stardom.

Martin said he decided years ago to not share "my entire truth" with the world because people he loved warned him that "everything you've built will collapse."

"Allowing myself to be seduced by fear and insecurity became a self-fulfilling prophecy of sabotage," he wrote. "Today I take full responsibility for my decisions and my actions."

The decision to come out was initiated a few months ago, when he began writing his memoirs, he said. "I got very close to my truth," he wrote.

Dennis Hopper attends Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony

Posted: 06:11 PM ET

By Alan Duke, CNN 

Los Angeles, California (CNN) - Dennis Hopper took what may be his final bow Friday as his star was dedicated on Hollywood's Walk of Fame. 

His lawyer and doctor told the judge overseeing his divorce this week that Hopper is dying of prostate cancer, but the 73-year-old actor was smiling broadly during the ceremony.

"I just want to thank you," Hopper told the crowd surrounding him. "That's all I can do."

"Easy Rider" co-star Jack Nicholson stood behind Hooper as Hollywood star number 2,403 was revealed with Hopper's name in front of the Egyptian Theater. Other stars on hand included director David Lynch and singers Johnny Mathis and Dwight Yoakum.

With his 6-year-old daughter, Galen, by his side, Hopper waved and bowed to hundreds of fans lining a barricade along Hollywood Boulevard.

Hopper's doctor called him "extremely weak" and said he weighs barely 100 pounds in a court document filed this week, but he walked on his own during the 45 minutes he was at the ceremony.

His forehead and right hand were bandaged, but not because of his illness. Hopper said he "took a terrible fall" and "got pretty screwed up" as photographers followed him outside his Venice, California, home Thursday.

"I want to thank the paparazzi," he said. "I know you've got a tough job, but sometimes you ought to be a little more sensitive

Hopper, who is undergoing radical chemotherapy for advanced, metastasized prostate cancer, is also divorcing his wife of 14 years, Victoria Hopper.

He is too weak and ill to be questioned by lawyers in the divorce, but attending Friday's ceremony "is a positive experience in every way," his doctor's sworn statement said.

The couple separated in January when he filed for divorce, claiming the stress of their relationship was threatening his life as he battled cancer.

Report: Sandra Bullock has left her husband, Jesse James

Posted: 08:07 AM ET

Sandra Bullock and Jesse James are not living under the same roof right now.

The actress left the Southern California house she shares with James just days before a report of infidelity by her husband surfaced, a source tells PEOPLE.

Bullock and James, 40, met in 2004 during a tour of the set of the Discovery Channel's Monster Garage, which James starred in.

Actor Peter Graves dead at 83

Posted: 08:14 AM ET

Actor Peter Graves, best known for his starring role on TV's "Mission: Impossible," died Sunday. He was 83.

While the cause of the actor's death was not immediately known, he apparently suffered a heart attack, his publicist said.

Graves had gone to brunch with his family Sunday morning. After they returned home and entered the house, one of his daughters began to wonder why he hadn't come back inside with them, said publicist Sandy Brokaw.

The family went outside and found Graves had collapsed. His daughter performed CPR but was unsuccessful in reviving the actor, Brokaw said.

Graves had been in good health and was celebrating 60 years of marriage and 60 years in the entertainment business. He was still pursuing work when he died, the publicist said.

He is best known for playing the character Jim Phelps for all but one of the seven years "Mission: Impossible" ran on CBS, from 1967-1973. He won a Golden Globe in 1971 for his work on the show, and was also nominated for an Emmy.

He reprised the role from 1988 to 1990 when the show resurfaced on ABC.
