"GLEE" CREATOR SAYS FINAL SEASON WON'T BE SET IN NEW YORK

Glee creator Ryan Murphy has changed his mind and is telling reporters that the final season of the Fox series won't be centered on New York after all. "The final season is really its own story and its own location and while the New York stuff will be alive, the final season is not New York-centric at all," Murphy told reporters Monday during a conference call that included The Hollywood Reporter.  Instead the series will time jump, and Murphy said he's inviting all past characters back to the series for its sixth and final season. "It really [will be] a lovely, fitting season that dwells on the original people that were on the show and what happens to them and how they give back. That really is the last season. We'll revisit some of the new kids that came and went. There's a return of the Jane [Lynch]-Matt [Morrison] characters in a big way. It's really interesting, very sweet, satisfying ending to the story," he said.

MICHAEL STRAHAN SAYS THAT IF HE JOINS GOOD MORNING AMERICA HIS “LIVE” CO-HOSTING GIG WILL REMAIN HIS PRIORITY EVEN AFTER HE REPLACES JOSH ELLIOTT AFTER HIS SUDDEN DEPARTURE FOR NBC

Michael Strahan has confirmed that he has been in talks with Good Morning America about joining the morning show team in addition to his co-hosting role on “Live with Kelly and Michael.” The former football star-turned-talk show host reiterated that he will keep the 9 a.m. talk show as his priority even though he is going to be brought into the GMA fold after the sudden departure of Josh Elliott. “This is what I do. This is me. This is my home. I love you,” he said on “Live” yesterday. “So no matter what I go nowhere. This is my love. You are my love. This is my job so don't worry.” Strahan said that he had gone for meetings with GMA executives but they had not yet finalized how he would juggle his work on the two shows - both of which air on ABC and are Disney productions. Strahan said that whatever they work out with GMA, they will have to be smart about it when it comes to his schedule. “This is my number one priority, you are my number one priority and I love what I do. I would never do anything to jeopardize the quality of what we do,” he said on “Live.”

ANDERSON COOPER WILL NOT INHERIT ANY OF HIS MOTHER'S VANDERBILT MILLIONS WHEN SHE DIES

Anderson Cooper has revealed that he will not be inheriting any money from his wealthy mother, Gloria Vanderbilt. The heiress-turned-jeans designer and perfume developer is the great-great-great-granddaughter of the railroad tycoon Cornelius Vanderbilt. Gloria, who is now 90-years-old, has an estimated personal wealth of about $200 million but her youngest son Anderson is not expecting to get any of that when she dies. “My mom's made clear to me that there's no trust fund. There's none of that,” the CNN anchor told Howard Stern on his radio show. “I don't believe in inheriting money... I think it's an initiative sucker. I think it's a curse.  Who's inherited a lot of money that has gone on to do things in their own life? The 46-year-old journalist makes a reported $11 million per year as a result of his CNN contract “I'm doing fine on my own, I don't need any,” he said.

SERIES FINALE: HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER (SPOILERS)

So now we know how he met their mother. In its 208th and final episode last night, the CBS comedy "How I Met Your Mother" finally revealed the mystery contained in its title and then ended with a twist designed to reward longtime fans.

A lot of things change. A lot of things don't. But in the end, Ted finally wraps up the long, very involved story he has spent nine long seasons telling his children.

WOMAN GETS $25,000 IN PLASTIC SURGERY TO LOOK LIKE JENNIFER LAWRENCE

Jennifer Lawrence inspired at least one fan to take some extreme measures to follow in the Hollywood star’s footsteps. A 30-year-old mom and dog trainer named Kitty opted to have six plastic surgery procedures, totaling $25,000, to look even more like Lawrence, to whom she says she’s often compared. “I can appreciate that her personality is spunky and fun,” she said. “I can appreciate that her body is banging.” As Lawrence became more famous, Kitty’s interest in heightening their resemblance also grew. She explains, “The more I’ve looked at her, the more I’ve realized that her features are sort of my features but more refined.” Kitt adds, “The reason why I decided to get surgery is because post having my daughter, I wasn’t quite as comfortable with my body…I don’t think you have to be crazy to want to look better or feel better about yourself. That’s not crazy.”

LEAKED 32-PAGE THE VOICE CONTRACT SHOWS NBC CAN IGNORE VIEWER VOTES, EXPOSE PSYCH TESTS AND SUE CONTESTANTS FOR $1 MILLION

A leaked legal document that contestants of The Voice must sign in order to appear on the TV talent show has exposed the production's potential for distortion and the umbrella of power NBC ensures it has. The 32-page contract was obtained by the NY Daily News and details how producers can cut anyone from the line-up, break and change rules of the competition at their discretion, script winners and send the singing hopefuls for medical and/or psychological tests and broadcast the results. One clause also reportedly says they can ignore the show's voting system in “the event of problems.” Another warns contestants the show “may be disparaging, defamatory, embarrassing (and) may expose [them] to public ridicule, humiliation or condemnation.” It also warns they could “portray [them] in a false light.” The cast-iron contract has been drafted so that none of the fledgling reality stars that enter the show can sue NBC afterwards.

CHARRED SUNGLASSES WORN BY PAUL WALKER IN HORROR CRASH ARE AUCTIONED OFF BY MAN WHO TOOK THEM FROM SCENE OF HIS DEATH

The sunglasses worn by Paul Walker on the day he died have been placed up for auction. The actor perished alongside his friend Roger Rodas on November 30, when the car they were traveling in lost control and crashed. And the seller of the accessories claims to have stopped to help at the crash scene in Santa Clarita, California. According to the auction listing on BidAMI.com, the mystery owner says police ordered him away from the scene but he returned to look when the wreckage was cleared and found the sunglasses in the bushes. The listing states: “The owner of this lot offering was nearby and on scene for information and assistance with officers and reporters.  Once the site investigation was cleared with car debris hauled away and tape taken down, a responding officer allowed him as well as others back to the public site. The listing on BidAMI.com also includes a fire extinguisher which the owner claims was used on the scene, crash debris and photographs taken at the site. The lot has so far attracted three bids, and the current sale price is $605.
