Emma Watson will bring new 'Harry Potter' clip to MTV Movie Awards


Emma Watson may have graduated from the wizarding world, but she'll bring a bit of "Harry Potter" magic to the MTV Movie Awards Sunday night.

Watson, who plays brainy witch Hermione Granger in all eight "Potter" films, will take a break from filming "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" to present a previously unseen clip from "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2," the final installment in the film franchise that has spanned a decade.

"Wizard-loving fans will be treated to a never-before-seen clip from the conclusion of the two-part motion picture event," MTV announced.

"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1" is up for a chunk of the evening's awards, including best movie, best male performance, best female performance (Watson), best villain (Tom Felton's Draco Malfoy), best fight (Watson, Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint vs. Death Eaters) and, of course, best kiss (Watson and Radcliffe.)

None of that's to say the "Potter" nominees are shoo-ins; they'll face some stiff competition with "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse." The new "Potter" clip will share the spotlight with "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" teaser trailer, which is also making its debut at the awards.

Maybe it's the perfect venue for the wizard-lovers and the vampire-crazed to square off.

Lisa Rinna says she'd join Kelly Ripa after Regis Philbin leaves 'Live'

Lisa Rinna wants to join Kelly Ripa when Regis Philbin leaves "Live"

Lisa Rinna, who 10 years ago was up for the "Live" job that Kelly Ripa ultimately snagged, would now like to take Regis Philbin's spot on the show.

"I think it's actually smart to put a lady in there [with] Kelly," the former "Days of Our Lives" star told PopEater. "It would be fun to co-host with her, at least see what the chemistry would be like, 'cause we know sometimes women get along, sometimes they don't."

Philbin, 79, who has hosted "Live" for nearly 28 years, announced in January he would leave the show at the end of this summer. Ripa has been his co-host for a decade, since Kathie Lee Gifford left the show.

"You can't replace Regis," said Rinna, who recently co-hosted "Live" while Ripa was on vacation, but added that Philbin has long been a supporter.

"Kelly, she of course should have gotten the role, but every time I sit down with Regis, he says, 'It could have been yours.' Ten years later, he said it again today," Rinna told PopEater.

Do you think "Live With Kelly and Lisa" could be a hit? Let us know in the comments.

Richie Sambora in rehab; Bon Jovi to tour without him

Richie Sambora is back in rehab Richie Sambora may have fallen off the wagon, but the show will go on for a supportive Bon Jovi.

Guitarist Sambora is checking into rehab to treat his exhaustion and deal with sobriety issues, RadarOnline reported.

In a statement on the rock band's website, Bon Jovi said it will proceed with its upcoming tour without Sambora.

"Our support for Richie is absolute," the statement said. "He is, and will remain, a member of Bon Jovi. Although he will be absent from upcoming shows for the time being, we very much look forward to his healthy return. In the meantime, we will keep our commitment to our fans and continue our tour."

The group kicks off its North America tour Saturday in New Orleans before heading to Europe in June.

This isn't Sambora's first stint in rehab.

The rocker, who spoke about his addiction to painkillers in the Bon Jovi documentary "When We Were Beautiful," checked into rehab twice in 2007 -- the year his divorce from Heather Locklear was finalized, his father died from lung cancer, and he split with girlfriend Denise Richards.

Sambora also pleaded no contest to DUI in 2008.

"Richie has had a busy year," a source told Radar. "I think this was a culmination of all the things that overloaded his life and finally he realized he needed to take care of himself."

'Prom' movie premiere: Rebecca Black hits the red carpet with stars Aimee Teegarden, Thomas McDonell

Aimee Teegarden at the "Prom" movie premiere

A constellation of rising stars joined cast members of Walt Disney's "Prom" at the movie's red-carpet premiere Thursday. The teen flick's leading lady, Aimee Teegarden of "Friday Night Lights" fame, sparkled in silver on the arm of costar Thomas McDonell at the screening in Hollywood.

"Prom" chronicles a group of high-schoolers on the cusp of adulthood as they prepare for the most important night in their lives.

Rebecca Black at the premiere of the movie "Prom." Cast members Yin Chang ("Gossip Girl"), Danielle Campbell, Jonathan Keltz and Jared Kusnitz dolled up for the El Capitan premiere, and the film's director Joe Nussbaum and screenwriter Katie Wech beamed from the red carpet.

A slew of young celebs rocked dresses that could have twirled in movie proms of yore. "Modern Family" actress Ariel Winter and Joey King, the pint-sized star of "Ramona and Beezus," were both pretty in pink. Chelsie Hightower ("Entertainment Tonight," "Dancing With the Stars") and Aimee-Lynn Chadwick wore black-and-white stripes. Click the pics to see more pictures.

Rebecca Black, the singer of the YouTube hit "Friday," defied death threats to strut her stuff for the cameras in a white, balloon-skirt dress. "Spy Kids" star Daryl Sabara looked snappy in a gray suit. Kendall and Kylie Jenner ("Keeping Up With the Kardashians") hammed it up for the cameras.

Olympic gold medalist Tara Lipinski made an appearance, as did Rachel Smith, Zachary Gordon, Nathan Kress, Jake T. Austin, Francia Raisa, Nolan Sotillo and Debby Ryan, to name a few.

The event was followed by an after-party at the aptly chosen Hollywood High School, where pop/rock band Allstar Weekend -- which rose to popularity after competing in "Disney's Next Big Thing" --  performed for the young stars.

"Prom" opens in theaters April 29.

Trump supporter Gary Busey's 1-year-old son hospitalized


Gary Busey's 1-year-old son has been hospitalized since earlier this week at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where he is being treated for "a childhood illness."

Luke Busey, son of the actor and fiancee Steffanie Sampson, is expected home by the end of the week, a Busey rep told "Access Hollywood" on Tuesday.

"Gary is very grateful to his fans for their love and support," the rep said. "Gary and Steffanie thank everyone for their prayers and get-well wishes for Luke."

The "Lethal Weapon" actor also has a son, Jake Busey, with ex-wife Judy Helkenberg, and a daughter, Alectra "Ellie" Busey, with Tracy Hutchinson.

The freshly fired "Celebrity Apprentice" contestant made headlines earlier this week when he expressed his support for Donald Trump's rumored presidential bid. Busey told the "Today" show that although he has "great respect" for President Obama, Trump "would be an absolutely good" president.

"He knows about this country," Busey said. "He knows the situation we're in now."

On the "The Wendy Williams Show," the actor went so far as to pledge his vote, calling Trump "a great man."

Demi Lovato reveals her diagnosis of bipolar disorder

Demi Lovato reveals she struggles with bipolar disorder Demi Lovato, who last week tweeted her support for Catherine Zeta-Jones' "brave" decision to be treated for bipolar II disorder, revealed that she too is bipolar.

The 18-year-old Disney actress discovered her diagnosis during her three-month stay at a rehabilitation center in Illinois, where she was treated for anorexia, bulimia and cutting.

"I never found out until I went into treatment that I was bipolar," Lovato told People. "Looking back it makes sense. There were times when I was so manic, I was writing seven songs in one night and I'd be up until 5:30 in the morning."

Lovato has recently opened up about what she calls "the darkest time" in her life, discussing in depth her struggles with self-mutilation and eating disorders.

In an interview that will air Friday on "Good Morning America" and "20/20," Lovato said her lifelong depression wreaked havoc on her body.

"[Cutting] was a way of expressing my own shame, of myself, on my own body," Lovato said in the interview. "I was matching the inside to the outside. And there were some times where my emotions were just so built up, I didn't know what to do. The only way that I could get instant gratification was through an immediate release on myself."

Lovato also said she was bullied at school, and discussed her decadelong "unhealthy relationship with food," saying she started compulsively overeating when she was only 8 years old and later began starving herself.

"I was performing concerts on an empty stomach," she said. "I was losing my voice from purging. I was self-medicating. I was not taking medication for depression, and I literally was so emotionally whacked-out that I took it out on someone that meant a lot to me."

Lindsay Lohan dropped from 'Gotti' biopic consideration

Lindsay Lohan and Victoria Gotti Sounds like a tale of organized crime won't pay for Lindsay Lohan, who, despite her stunning resemblance to crime boss John Gotti's daughter, has been dropped from consideration for the role of Victoria Gotti in the mobster biopic "Gotti: Three Generations."

A week ago, the "Mean Girls" star was "in talks" to join John Travolta and Joe Pesci in the film. "Talks have stopped," producer Marc Fiore told People, giving no details except to note that Lohan's off-screen legal woes were not an issue.

"She's a wonderful person," Fiore said. "Her legal case has nothing to do with it. We just couldn't reach terms."

The troubled actress is facing a felony charge for allegedly stealing a necklace from a Venice boutique. Her penchant for partying has also landed her in trouble with the law, and she is still dealing with the aftermath of her 2007 DUI arrests.

The announcement comes on the heels of news Tuesday that Nick Cassavetes, whose titles include "The Notebook" and "Alpha Dog," has dropped out of his directorial role in the film due to a scheduling conflict with the indie drama "Yellow," which he was already signed on to direct.

Lohan and Cassavetes both attended a news conference a week ago promoting the mobster flick, posing for pictures with Victoria Gotti and John Gotti Jr. Other actresses are now being considered for the role, Fiore said.

Meanwhile, Lohan may still be in the running for another mob movie: Fiore has expressed interest in casting Lohan in "Mob Street," a film about the Mafia's involvement on Wall Street.

Rihanna's secret family: two half-sisters, a half-brother — and two nieces

Rihanna's has three more half-siblings Barbados bombshell Rihanna has a secret family — two sisters and a brother from three mothers.

The "S&M" and "Umbrella" hitmaker is also an auntie to two adoring nieces, the Sun of London revealed.

Rihanna's long-lost sibs were each born during different relationships before their father, Ronald Fenty, married Rihanna's mother, Monica.

Rihanna, whose family calls her by her given name, Robyn, was 15 and not famous when she first met her eldest sibling, 32-year-old Kandy, who showed up at the Fentys' door and explained who she was.

"I guess you could say I was shocked," Ronald Fenty told the British tabloid. "But I was a bit on the wild side and something of a ladies' man back in my early days."

Ya think?

Rihanna has devoted fans in her nieces, 14-year-old Brandy and 11-year-old Crystal.

"My girls thought she was great fun and now, of course, they love the fact their auntie is one of the most famous singers in the world," Kandy said. "They love her music and are always singing her songs at the top of their voices."

The other secret siblings are Samantha, 30, a policy consultant for Caribbean regional governments, and brother Jamie, a 27-year-old graphic artist.

The R&B star maintains a warm relationship with them, the Sun said, dropping by for visits when she returns to Barbados for family events or official functions.

Rihanna is also close with her younger brothers, Rorrey, 21, and Rajad, 15. On her way to see Arcade Fire at Coachella, she tweeted birthday wishes to her baby brother: "Happy BIRTHDAY to my baby bro (I still think he's my son) RAJAD!!! Sis love you booj, even from a million miles away! Wish I cud squeeze u."

Sounds like one bigger, happier family.
