Nikki Bella gives John Cena relationship update, says they are friends
Nikki Bella has given an update on her relationship with John Cena in a new video posted onto The Bella Twins YouTube channel.

The clip, released Sunday, features Bella discussing where her and Cena stand after the WWE power couple announced they had split in April after a six-year relationship and as the current season of Total Bellas continues to chronicle the lead up to their break up.

"Right now we're just friends. We are both working on each other and trying to work on us," Bella said in the video.

"We talk everyday. He is not only my best friend but he truly is one of the most amazing people I have ever met," she continued. "Hopefully one day we will get back together and if we don't we just both want each other to be very, very happy."

Bella also discussed what fans can expect in upcoming episodes of Total Bellas including her bachelorette party, how the planned wedding to Cena would have looked and the season finale will be emotional.

"The season finale is very tough," Bella said. "Its very honest and raw and real and you will see why John and I are at where we at today."

Bella and Cena's split had followed the third season debut of Total Bellas which featured the former Divas champion reconsidering her wedding because she wanted a child and Cena did not. Cena then appeared on Today in May and told hosts Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford that he was now willing to start a family with her.

Abby Lee Miller says she's "on the mend" after undergoing a second surgery.

The 51-year-old television personality gave an update in an Instagram post Saturday after getting 52 staples in her back following an operation.

"After the 2nd surgery, My back is finally on the mend. I just wish the top section & bottom would hurry along too!" Miller captioned a photo of her stitches and scars.

"I had 52 staples perfectly aligned and now a bunch of crazy stitches are holding my neck & lumbar region together! #abbyleemiller #abbylee #dancemoms," she added.

The former Dance Moms star was preliminarily diagnosed with Burkitt lymphoma, a type of cancer, after having emergency spine surgery in April. She underwent another procedure in June.

"I'm in recovery now and texting so everything must be ok," Miller said at the time. "Please keep me in your prayers. I'm grateful for all the well wishes!"

Miller said Friday on Twitter that she had "been on chemo for 6 days" at Cedars Sinai hospital in Los Angeles. She shaved her head last week amid her chemotherapy treatments.

"I was told that the first year of marriage would be really difficult and people warned me, but actually it's incredible."

Brian Ross departs ABC News following December suspension
Investigative reporter Brian Ross departed from ABC News on Monday after being suspended in December for an erroneous report about former national security advisor Michael Flynn.

The 69-year-old Ross, who worked at ABC News since 1994, announced his plans to depart from the network along with chief of investigative projects Rhonda Schwartz in a post on his Twitter account.

"It's time to say good-bye after 24 years at ABC News, an organization that has meant so much to us. While Rhonda Schwartz and I are signing off from ABC News, we are hardly leaving investigative journalism. There is much more to do," Ross said.

In an email to the news division, ABC News President James Goldston praised Ross and Schwartz for their work covering topics including "international human rights abuses and fraud, uncovered dangerous working conditions, sexual abuse cover-ups and dishonest business practices," which he noted often led to changes in policy.

"Over the years they have built a team of the best investigative journalists in our industry, and they leave behind an outstanding group that will continue to break stories for many years to come," Goldston wrote.

The network suspended Ross for four weeks in December after he cited a Flynn confidante on-air as saying Flynn was prepared to testify that President Donald Trump instructed him to contact Russian officials during his presidential campaign.

ABC News corrected the story hours after the original report aired, stating the source later clarified Trump assigned Flynn and a few other senior advisers after the election to find ways to improve relations with Russia, specifically regarding working together against the Islamic State.

Josh Duhamel, Eiza Gonzalez spotted kissing in Mexico
Rumored couple Josh Duhamel and Eiza Gonzalez were spotted kissing during a trip to Mexico.

The 45-year-old actor and 28-year-old actress got close during a visit Sunday to Muyil Lagoon, according to E! News.

Entertainment Tonight said Duhamel and Gonzalez kissed and embraced during their outing on the water. Duhamel wore a t-shirt and white board shorts, while Gonzalez sported a sharkskin print bikini.

Duhamel and Gonzalez were first linked in February following the actor's split from Fergie. The pair stepped out together for a dinner date at Matsuhisa Beverly Hills restaurant in June.

"Their relationship started out slowly, but lately, they are spending more time together," a source told People at the time. "They seem very happy."

Duhamel separated from Fergie in September after eight years of marriage. Fergie, who is parent to 4-year-old son Axl with the actor, subsequently told Entertainment Tonight she and Duhamel remain friends.

"We're great friends, Josh and I," the singer said. "There's so much love we have for each other. We really like each other, we have fun with each other."
