Lifetime has picked up the reality series "Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition," headlined by "Dance Moms' " Abby Lee Miller, the network reported Monday.
The show will feature 12 of the country's most talented girl and boy dancers competing for a $100,000 cash prize and a scholarship to the Young Dancer Program at the Joffrey Ballet School in New York. Joining Miller at the judges table will be Robin Antin, founder of the pop group sensation Pussycat Dolls, and dancer and cutting-edge celebrity choreographer Richard Jackson (Lady Gaga's "Marry the Night"). Kevin Manno (MTV's "The Seven") will host.
Mila Kunis' relationship with Ashton Kutcher doesn't seem to be up in the air -- even in the moments before they boarded a plane leaving Bali after a romantic getaway.
The couple, noticeably tan from a weeklong island vacation, walked through the Denpasar International Airport on Sunday -- and they were holding hands.
Four months since they were first romantically linked -- and 14 years after they met filming "That '70s Show" -- the two have been taking a break from Hollywood with some quality time at a five-star resort on the island's southern peninsula. "They were smiling, really relaxed together," an observer told People of the traveling duo.
Rumored to be staying in Nusa Dua at the Amanusa beach resort, Kunis, 28, and Kutcher, 34 (who in November split from wife of six years Demi Moore) enjoyed a sunken indoor bathtub, a private pool and a wooden four-poster bed.
Of the couple, an observer at a Los Angeles movie wrap party told People last month, "It looked like young love."
Judith Light, newly armed with a Tony Award, will be returning to Broadway in a new play by Richard Greenberg, The Associated Press reports.
The Manhattan Theatre Club said Tuesday that the former "Who's the Boss" actress will star alongside Jessica Hecht in "The Assembled Parties." Lynne Meadow will direct.
Previews for the family drama about an affluent Jewish family in Manhattan begin March 19 at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre on 47th Street, with an opening set for April 17.
Greenberg's other plays include "Take Me Out" and "Three Days of Rain."
Light this summer won a best featured actress in a play Tony for "Other Desert Cities," and she was nominated for "Lombardi." Hecht was recently seen on Broadway starring opposite Jim Parsons in "Harvey."
nRob Kardashian is following in his father's footsteps.
The 25-year-old kid brother of Kim and Kourtney Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian Odom announced Monday on Twitter that he's heading to law school at the University of Southern California.
"Going to Law School very soon and so excited and can't wait!" he wrote. "School just never ends for me! #UniversityofSouthernCal #Trojans #FightOn"
Rob's late father, who passed away in 2003 of esophageal cancer, was a renowned California lawyer and businessman. Rob Sr. famously joined O.J. Simpson's defense team in his 1995 murder trial, despite not having practiced law for more than 20 years.
The Kardashian patriarch would undoubtedly be proud of his only son, who also has a bachelor's degree from USC. And in addition to his pursuit of a graduate degree, the reality star is launching a men's sock line on Nov. 1 at Neiman Marcus stores nationwide.
Willa Ford and husband Mike Modano, who married in Athens, Texas, in 2007, are going their separate ways, People reports.
"It is with great sadness that after five years of marriage, Willa and Mike have decided to divorce," they said in an exclusive joint statement through her rep. "They remain friends and wish each other success and happiness."
Ford, 31, and Modano, 42, who retired from the Dallas Stars hockey team last year, were together for more than four years before becoming engaged in 2006 and marrying the following year before 75 guests at a private ranch.
Ford, who competed on season 3 of "Dancing With the Stars," currently appears in the Starz original drama "Magic City."
