Joan Rivers returned to "The Tonight Show" Thursday after being banned for nearly three decades. The 80-year-old comic was welcomed by host Jimmy Fallon for her first sit-down interview in 26 years since a feud with former host Johnny Carson made her persona non grata at the network. Carson is credited with discovering the sharp-tongued Rivers in the '60s. He made her a writer on his show, and she even dedicated her book "Enter Talking" to him. But when she got her own competing, late-night talker on Fox in 1986, the pair fell out and never spoke again.

ARLINGTON, Wash. - Air National Guard Senior Airman Charolette Gibson was picking through debris at the scene of the massive mudslide in nearby Oso on Thursday, working as part of a team alongside residents and relatives of the victims. "It gives them hope, it gives us hope, and it gives you some perspective on the situation," she said after leaving the mudslide scene for an afternoon news briefing. Helmet in hand, she still wore her fatigues. About 50 of her teammates have been working through the debris since soon after the Saturday mudslide, wearing waders and walking in single file through muck that she said felt like wet pavement.

What's a Hollywood star and lifestyle guru to do after "consciously uncoupling" from her rock-star husband? In the case of Gwyneth Paltrow, she's planning to take a break from acting to focus on her children, according to E! Online. "I just finished a movie in January that I was doing at the end of last year in London with Johnny Depp, and then I had two weeks here, and then I did a couple of episodes for 'Glee' for the 100th episode," Paltrow told E! recently. The movie to which Paltrow referred is "Mortdecai," an action-comedy caper directed by David Koepp and based on Kyril Bonfiglioli's anthology book "The Mortdecai Trilogy," about a roguish art dealer racing to recover a stolen painting rumored to be linked to a lost bank account filled with Nazi gold.

He doesn't play for any of the more publicized schools in the area. In fact, he doesn't even play his home games in the county, but in relative obscurity at California High in Whittier. The opposition includes Big Bear, mighty Christian High of El Cajon and a Bassett team that finished 1-9 last season.

When Chris Martin started classes at Pepperdine University nearly four years ago, he suffered from much more than normal freshman jitters. He felt a little like his future was passing him by. Four months earlier, Martin, a talented shortstop at Hamilton High, had been ignored by college and professional baseball scouts.

No matter how you spin it, divorce is a failure. It's a failure of intention. A failure of commitment. A failure of the very thing you promised to do when you wed, which is stay together for the rest of your life. But hey, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin, if it makes you feel better to torture the language, have at it: Call your divorce after 11 years of marriage a “conscious uncoupling.” It's still a failure. Sure, it's easy to mock Paltrow and Martin (but mostly Paltrow)
