In a new interview with Ellen DeGeneres , ‘New Moon’ hunk Robert Pattinson tells all about the day that a fan "frantically started taking her clothes off" for him. He explains the story to Ellen, "It was after a period of signing 500 signatures and one of [the fans] just came up. You kind of get 10 seconds with each person and you never really say anything and I kind of got bored of saying, ‘Hey, how are you doing?’ And she said in her 10 seconds, ‘What can I do to get your attention?’ I was like um, ‘Just take your clothes off.’ And she stood there and frantically started taking her clothes off and got dragged out of the room by security. I never felt more terrible." But while Rob, who goes bare-chested for a scene in ‘New Moon,’ says he never used to pat himself on the back over his physique, things might be changing. He tells Ellen in the interview set to air Friday: "I saw an interview the other day with a fictitious quote saying that I was proud of my abs. I was like I would never say that in an interview and I actually saw the film yesterday and I was like,’Yeah. This is the first time I’ve ever been proud of my physical appearance in my entire life…’"

Larry King tells ET he "didn’t understand it all" when former Miss California Carrie Prejean took off her mic in the middle of her interview. "I won’t even dignify it," the CNN host tells ET. "I didn’t ask anything wrong. I didn’t know what was inappropriate. I’m doing my job." Prejean was on "Larry King Live" Wednesday night via satellite to discuss her new book, but instead found herself in a heated moment where she called the newsman "inappropriate" multiple times when he asked her about why she settled with the Miss USA pageant. She then removed her microphone and told King he was being "extremely inappropriate" and that she was "about to leave" the show.
"Survivor: Samoa"’s self-proclaimed master manipulator Russell Hantz tipped his hand on last week’s episode when he didn’t trust his newly merged tribe.They told him they were going to vote off Erik Cardona , but he was worried they might blindside him, so he played the Immunity Idol to keep him in the game one more week. Will he now be the next to go?

"The Biggest Loser" contestants received a shock on Tuesday night’s show when host Alison Sweeney told them that two people would be going home — and one of them would be automatic as the show had added a new element to the weigh-in: a red line. The person who had lost the lowest percentage of their body weight would automatically leave the ranch, no vote would be taken. Surprisingly, that person turned out to be fan favorite Daniel Wright . After Daniel left, the rest of the cast had to vote for either pink team member Amanda Arlauskas , or orange team member Shay Sorrells to be the second person to leave. Shay, who was the heaviest-ever contestant, was sent packing. She lost by one vote, cast by Rudy Pauls , with whom she had had a confrontation during a challenge that week. Shay had lost 17 pounds at the weigh-in, making her total 100 pounds, a record for a woman on the ranch. So it seemed at first as if she were safe, but because she still weighed 376 pounds, it just wasn’t enough.
