Following his brilliant shut-down of a nosy airplane passenger in June, Cooper took his defiance to the airwaves this week on his daytime talk show "Anderson Live. "  When Cooper came out as gay in July, former "The View" host Star Jones suggested that, when ratings slip, daytime hosts tend to reveal a lot of personal things in efforts to boost viewership.

The walk down the red carpet at the Emmys wasn't "as scary as it usually is," quipped "Sex and the City" actress Kim Cattrall. Why? Joan and Melissa Rivers, the mother-and-daughter duo who long hosted the event for E! Entertainment and served as the network's snarky fashion cops, were replaced by daytime talk show host Star Jones, who ushered in a far friendlier tone as she doled out air kisses and compliments.

After 16 years, Joy Behar is leaving "The View. " Behar, the brassy Brooklyn-born comic, announced that she's leaving ABC's morning talkfest at the end of her contract in August. "You reach a point where you say, 'Do I want to keep doing this?'," Behar told Deadline.com, which broke the news late Thursday. "There are other things on my plate I want to do -- I've been writing a play, I've been neglecting my stand-up. " Behar added that she'd be interested in joining CNN, which is being re-engineered by new boss Jeff Zucker, with whom Behar recently took a meeting.

Star Jones Reynolds skirted questions about her dramatic weight loss for years, saying only that she had undergone a medical intervention. That intervention, it turns out, was gastric bypass surgery. Reynolds, 45, says she was "intentionally evasive" when people asked how she'd dropped 160 pounds in three years. She writes about her weight loss in a first-person essay in the September issue of Glamour magazine, on newsstands Aug. 7.

Jacoby Jones proved he didn't have two left feet on the field when he took on the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII earlier this month.  But will that hold true on the dance floor? During a commercial break in Sunday night's Academy Awards, ABC ran an ad announcing the Baltimore Ravens wide receiver as a contestant on the new season of “Dancing With the Stars.” (See, live-viewing has its rewards.) Jones, 28, helped the Ravens to their victory in the big game, with a 108-yard kickoff return and a 56-yard touchdown catch that demonstrated his spinning abilities.

Jon Jones alone didn't put the Versus cable network back on DirecTV, but the public clamor and inside dealing that took place to get the rising star's Ultimate Fighting Championship bout in front of as many fans as possible did make an impression. Jones, a 22-year-old preacher's son from upstate New York, is matched against light-heavyweight Brandon Vera in the network's debut "UFC Live" card at 6 p.m. PDT Sunday in Broomfield, Colo. Until Monday, Versus had been kept off DirecTV since September, the result of a reported financial squabble in which the Comcast-owned sports network was charging a higher fee. Disagreement ensued, and Versus was blacked out. The ever-vocal fans of mixed martial arts made their dissatisfaction known as lower-weight fights in the UFC-owned World Extreme Cagefighting organization on Versus were going unseen.

Maria BELLO cuts such a memorable swath through such independent films as "A History of Violence" and "The Cooler" that it's surprising to find her in Universal's "The Mummy: Tomb of The Dragon Emperor," which opens Friday. Surprising to anyone but her, that is. Sitting down to lunch at a Beverly Hills restaurant, the blond, brown-eyed actress launches into an account of her lifelong love for adventure stories, almost as if she feels the need to prove that her intentions are honorable.
