There's a new leading lady! The first all-female finale of Dancing with the Stars featured all-stars Shawn Johnson, Kelly Monaco and Melissa Rycroft in a fierce battle for the mirror ball trophy. Kelly was the first eliminated…so it came down to Shawn and Melissa…and the winner is… Melissa! Rycroft was the only competitor among the final three all-stars to not have won before. Her partner Tony Dovolani had labored 14 seasons without previously winning.
Bing.com has come out with their list of the Most-Searched People of 2012.
Here it is...
#1.) Kim Kardashian
#2.) Justin Bieber (--He was #1 last year. Kim was #1 in 2010. So she stole the top spot back from him.)
#3.) Miley Cyrus
#5.) Lindsay Lohan
#6.) Katy Perry
#7.) Selena Gomez
#8.) Jennifer Aniston
#9.) Nicki Minaj
#10.) Taylor Swift
It’s almost time for "Time" magazine's Person of the Year. This years list of candidates for the honor includes President Obama, Mitt Romney, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Olympic gold medalists Gabby Douglas and Michael Phelps, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert…New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, the Mars Rover, and Malala, the 15-year-old Pakistani girl who was shot by the Taliban for advocating women's education. Also on the list…E.L. JAMES, who wrote "50 Shades of Grey," PSY, the guy responsible for "Gangnam Style,"
Last year's honoree was The Protester. And this year's list of candidates includes another one of those catch-alls: The Undocumented Worker. (--Check out all the candidates here.)
Angus T. Jones has released a statement in the wake of his anti-"Two and a Half Men" rant…and he's apologizing…Sort of. He says he's sorry if his comments came across as disrespectful or unappreciative. That being said, it doesn't seem like he plans to take any of it back. He doesn't directly address what he said and why he said it...and aside from referring to SOMETHING as a "misunderstanding," he isn't backtracking. TMZ has his full statement...click here to see it. Angus by the way, will NOT be on the set of "Two and a Half Men" to tape the next two episodes…but this has nothing to do with his rant. His character Jake is away, in the Army, and has had a diminished role recently. Sources say he was never written into these episodes.
Meanwhile, former "Two and a Half Men" problem Charlie Sheen has given his two cents. He said quote, "With Angus's Hale-Bopp-like meltdown, it's radically clear to me that the show is cursed." "Hale-Bopp" is a reference to the Heaven's Gate cult, which committed mass suicide in 1997 so their spirits could board an alien ship that was following the Hale-Bopp comet.
Angus’ religious advisor Christopher Hudson…the guy who's interviewing him in the video…says, quote, "Angus has not had a breakdown and I am not manipulating him. "We are making preparations for the second coming and it is our responsibility to prepare others for that. Angus accepts that we are living in the last days of the world as we know it. Jesus is coming soon and God will judge what is in the heart of each of us."
Here come the parodies: "Office" star Rainn Wilson made a video calling "The Office" filth, and telling people not to watch it Thursdays at 9:00 P.M.
"Supernatural" star Jared Padalecki thinks Angus should give away his salary if he really believes he's doing the devil's work. -Jared Tweeted, quote, "Angus T. Jones, if you BELIEVE what you said, put your money where your mouth is and donate your 'filthy' millions to charity. Try St. Jude."
The new "X-Men" movie will mark the return of Patrick Stewart as Professor X and Ian McKellan as Magneto. But James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender…who played the younger versions of those characters in the last movie, "X-Men: First Class"… are also coming back. It's a time travel story. Jennifer Lawrence will also return as Mystique.

Lisa Robin Kelly…who played Topher Grace’s sister on "That '70s Show"… was arrested Monday night after she and her husband got into a fight at their North Carolina home. Lisa's husband was arrested, too.
This marks Lisa's THIRD arrest since 2010, and her second arrest for domestic violence this year. Police say no drugs or alcohol were involved this time, but in the past, Lisa has copped to a drinking problem, which pretty much led to the end of her gig on "That '70s Show". She was arrested for DUI in 2010. And this past March, she was arrested for beating up a boyfriend, although the charges were eventually dropped. We don't know if that was the same guy she got in the fight with last night.
