Anna Faris and Chris Pratt announce divorce
Anna Faris and Chris Pratt said they are untying the knot after eight years of marriage.

"Anna and I are sad to announce we are legally separating," the ex-couple said in a joint statement on Facebook. "We tried hard for a long time, and we're really disappointed. Our son has two parents who love him very much and for his sake we want to keep this situation as private as possible moving forward. We still have love for each other, will always cherish our time together and continue to have the deepest respect for one another."

Faris tweeted a similar message from her Twitter account.

Faris, 40, and Pratt, 38, first met on the set of Take Me Home Tonight in 2007 and got married in 2009 during a ceremony in Bali.

In interviews they were often asked about balancing their relationship with the demands of being in-demand Hollywood actors.

"It's just as important, if not more important, to focus on your relationship with your partner because your children are going to leave one day [and] you have to maintain a relationship that's going to outlast your child's needs for you," Pratt told People in a recent interview. "I have the support of a strong partner who's been through this and understands it and whom I can share these experiences with. And we have a family that we're starting that's the focus of my attention."


Val Kilmer pushes back on 'more negative health lies'
Actor and artist Val Kilmer insists "family needs" and not poor health are to blame for some recent changes in his schedule.

"So happy to be back in Tuscan. Sold out giant #Rialto and they painted this on their walls! Can't wait to see the lobby," the actor tweeted Saturday, along with a photo of the mural featuring the words: "Val Kilmer Presents Cinema Twain. Aug. 5," and an image of Kilmer dressed as the iconic wordsmith and storyteller, Mark Twain.

"See reviews fr fans lst nite against new try to dredge up more negative health lies because I had to shuffle shows because of family needs," he said in a Twitter post Sunday.

The New York Post reported Saturday that Kilmer last month canceled appearances at Comic Con in Tampa Bay, Fla., and the opening of his own art exhibition, Icon Go On, I'll Go On, in Los Angeles, prompting concern about the status of his health.

Kilmer admitted this spring he was "healing" from cancer after denying reports he had the disease for about a year. The 57-year-old actor is known for his roles in Real Genius, Top Gun, The Doors, Willow, Batman Forever and Tombstone.

Which renowned television producer won't attend the Kennedy Center Honors reception with President Trump?


ABC courting Johnny Galecki for 'Roseanne' revival
ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey says actor Johnny Galecki may reprise his role of David in the upcoming revival of Roseanne.

The Hollywood Reporter quoted Dungey as saying Sunday talks with Galecki are "ongoing."

Galecki, current co-star on The Big Bang Theory, appeared on Roseanne Seasons 4-9.

Already confirmed to return for Season 10 in 2018 are Roseanne Barr, John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Michael Fishman, Lecy Goranson and Sara Gilbert.

TVGuide.com said some, but not all, elements of the show's controversial finale will be changed in the new episodes.

"I wouldn't say that [the revival] is ignoring the events of the finale, but I can confirm that Dan is definitely still alive," Dungey told reporters at the Television Critics Association summer press tour.


Whoopi Goldberg to return for 10th season of 'The View'
Oscar-winning actress Whoopi Goldberg will return for her 10th season on ABC's daytime talk show The View, according to multiple media reports.

The decision helps settle what has been a revolving door of cast members on the female-hosted talk show since the retirement of its creator, Barbara Walters, four years ago. Aside from Walters, who hosted the first 17 seasons of The View, and another original panelist, Joy Behar, Goldberg will become the longest-serving panel member in the show's 21-year history. She will surpass former costars Meredith Vieira and Star Jones, who each did nine years on the program.

With a focus on controversy surrounding the Trump administration, The View has enjoyed its strongest ratings in three years, averaging 2.6 million viewers per episode last week. That number put it ahead of its competitor, CBS' The Talk, which has opted to shift away from much of the political drama in Washington in favor of a focus on pop culture.

The 21st season of The View is set to debut in early September.

Which renowned television producer won't attend the Kennedy Center Honors reception with President Trump?

Norman Lear says he will attend the Kennedy Center Honors ceremony, but not the traditional gathering hosted by the President of the United States before it.

"I could never turn my back on the @kencen. It represents the Arts and Humanities which mean everything to me," Lear tweeted Friday. "Of course, I'm accepting the honors. What I'm not accepting is the @WhiteHouse reception with @realDonaldTrump."

Honorees typically attend a reception at the White House before the gala, then sit with the president and his spouse during it and go to dinner with the first couple after it. This year's honorees are Lear, Carmen de Lavallade, Gloria Estefan, LL Cool J and Lionel Richie.

CBS confirmed this week President Donald Trump and his wife Melania will be participating in all of the high-profile events associated with the Kennedy Center Honors. The network is scheduled to broadcast the Dec. 3 ceremony on Dec. 26.

Lear, 95, is best known as the producer of All in the Family, Good Times, One Day at a Time, The Jeffersons, Spinal Tap, Stand By Me and The Princess Bride. He also is the author of Even This I Get to Experience. He and his frequent collaborator Rob Reiner are vocal critics of Trump.
