'The Bachelorette' finale: Rachel Lindsay chooses Bryan Abasolo
Rachel Lindsay's journey to find love came to an end Monday on the season finale of The Bachelorette which ended with a proposal.

Lindsay ended up giving the final rose to chiropractor Bryan Abasolo who was up against business owner Peter Kraus. Personal trainer Eric Bigger was sent home first earlier in the finale.

The 32-year-old ended things with Kraus due to his cold feet when it came to marriage. "While things didn't end the way that I hoped, I have you to thank for the feelings I did have," Kraus said to Lindsay. "I wish you nothing but the best and I really just want happiness for you, that's all."

This left Abasolo for Lindsay who proposed on a hill after picking out a Neil Lane engagement ring. "You are everything I could ever want in a woman, a wife, the mother of my children. I am completely head over heels, totally, absolutely in love with you," he said. "I just hope you feel the same."

"I love you and I can't imagine spending my life with someone else," added Lindsay. The live portion of the finale involved Abasolo asking Lindsay to marry him again in front of the live audience.

Abasolo shared the engagement news on Instagram alongside a photo of himself getting down on one knee to propose to Lindsay. "We've gone through so much...the ups, the downs, the challenges...but in the end, what shines above all else is the deep love, loyalty, respect and admiration we have for each other and that's what will continue to carry us through into our future," he wrote as part of a lengthy caption.

"On cloud 9," he captioned a second photo of himself and Lindsay sharing a kiss while onboard an airplane.

Ryan Reynolds has given fans their first taste of how Josh Brolin will appear as time-traveling mutant Cable in Deadpool 2.

"We all have that one, grumpy, heavily armed Uncle from the future," Reynolds shared on Twitter Monday alongside a close-up image of Brolin in costume as Cable.

Brolin is seen notably sporting the characters signature mechanical eye and scared face. The actor is holding up his finger to his mouth in the image.

In a second photo shared by Reynolds, Brolin is featured carrying a large gun and sporting Cable's metal arm along with a teddy bear hanging by his side.

ABC: 'Last Man Standing' cancellation not due to Tim Allen's political views
ABC entertainment president Channing Dungey has stated that Tim Allen's political views did not lead to the cancellation of Last Man Standing.

"Politics had absolutely nothing to do with it -- we have actors on our shows who have all sorts of different political views," Dungey said to The Wrap Sunday during the Television Critics Association's summer press tour.

"Tim Allen is a valuable part of the Disney ABC family and has been for a very, very long time," she continued. "Last Man Standing was a show that, several years running, kind of came up to the very end in terms of the renewal, which was the same case this year."

Last Man Standing, which starred Allen in the lead role, was canceled by ABC in May after six seasons. The actor previously stated that he was "stunned and blindsided," by the network's decision.

Following the news, fans of the sitcom wondered if Allen's outspoken political views could have led to the cancellation. The comedian notably attended President Donald Trump's inauguration and previously stated on Jimmy Kimmel Live that it wasn't easy to express his conservative views in Hollywood.

"You've gotta be real careful around here," Allen said at the time. "This is like '30s Germany. I don't know what happened. If you're not part of the group, 'You know what we believe is right,' I go, 'Well, I might have a problem with that.'"

Last Man Standing featured Allen as a conservative, church-going Colorado man who is married with three adult daughters and in charge of marketing for a chain of outdoor, sporting goods stores. The show also starred Nancy Travis and Hector Elizondo.

In June, CMT was reported to be in discussions with 20th Century Fox TV about bringing back Last Man Standing for a seventh season.


Elon Musk confirms Amber Heard split: 'We are still friends'
Elon Musk says he's "still friends" with Amber Heard, despite their recent split.

The 46-year-old Tesla founder addressed his breakup with Heard by commenting on the 31-year-old actress' Instagram photo Monday.

"V cute," Musk responded to a side-by-side photo of The Little Mermaid character Ariel and Heard, who will play the mermaid Mera in the upcoming movies Justice League and Aquaman.

"Btw, just to clear up some of the press storm this weekend, although Amber and I did break up, we are still friends, remain close and love one another," he added. "Long distance relationship when both partners have intense work obligations are always difficult, but who knows what the future holds."

Us Weekly reported Sunday that Musk and Heard had recently called it quits after a year of dating. Sources said the couple's split was due to their busy schedules.

"The timing wasn't good for them," an insider told the magazine. "He's super busy and works all the time. Amber is filming [Aquaman] in Australia until October. She's in no position to settle with him. She feels her career is just starting."

Musk and Heard met on the set of Machete Kills in 2013, and were first linked in July 2016 following their respective splits from Talulah Riley and Johnny Depp. Musk shares five sons, Damian, Griffin, Kai, Saxon and Xavier, with Riley.
