Ed Hartwell and the former ‘Cosby Show’ actress have been married for just six months.
Ed Hartwell, the husband of Keshia Knight Pulliam, has filed for divorce just six months after the couple married and days after the actress announced she was pregnant. Hartwell filed for divorce this week and is now said to de demanding that his estranged wife undergo a paternity test.
Talk show host Oprah Winfrey and her partner Steadman Graham were spotted arriving at the New York premiere for 'The Butler'. Oprah, who was wearing a sparkling pink sequined dress with her hair frizzed up with life, starred as the titular character's wife Gloria Gaines in the movie.
ABC's Splash is based on ITV's UK version, which pulled in millions of viewers despite being derided by critics and audiences alike.
Splash, ABC's new reality diving competition, premiered on Tuesday evening (March 19, 2013), to a mixed response on Twitter. Based on the UK version hosted by Olympic diver Tom Daley, Splash sees 10 celebrities train for six weeks and perform at least one dive for a live audience each way. The dives are usually terrible.
Though the UK version was recently renewed for series two, the show was derided for its slow pacing, bad diving, poor celebrity names and clueless judges. The problem is, clearly, that a dive into a swimming pool lasts about one second, while the show lasts for about, one hour. As such, the show is filled with a whole lot of nothing.
Last night saw actress Keshia Knight Pulliam perform a frankly dismal dive, before Louie Anderson did a little better. Model Katherine Webb also leapt into the pool, while Kareem Abdul-Jabbar did, err, his best. Judging the contestants is Dave Boudia and Steve Foley, two Olympians who lack any sort of on-screen charisma, which makes things worse.

Over the last few years, however, Perry (who plays the bossy battleaxe in full blown comic drag) has tried to wean his fan base off of Madea. She was absent from his last film (The Family that Preys) and had only a minor cameo in Meet the Browns. But now she's back, and while Madea Goes to Jail is wholly watchable, it's also an uneven experience.

After performing peripheral duties in "Barbershop2: Back in Business," Gina has moved fromChicago to Atlanta in this picture so her daughter can attend a prestigiousperforming arts school. To pay for it she's been putting up with workingunder Jorge, the pompous, flamboyantly skanky owner of a ritzy downtownsalon -- played by Kevin Bacon with a gleefully bad Euro-trash accent andgreasy, over-highlighted hair in his eyes.
But as the movie opens, she's just about had enough. Packingup her scissors and you-go-girl self-confidence, she hooks a small bankloan and fixes up a neglected beauty shop on the edge of a rough neighborhood,where inherits a handful of mouthy stylists with chips on their shouldersand hopes for the best.
Following the successful "Barbershop" formula,the movie's strength is its colorful cast of characters for whom no topic-- from bikini waxes to Oprah Winfrey -- is off-limits to zingers and smartremarks. They range from the ever under-appreciated Alfre Woodard as aheritage-proud black hairdresser who knows a Maya Angelou quote for everyoccasion to Alicia Silverstone as a bumpkin shampoo girl (with an unconvincingsouthern accent) who leaves Jorge's with Gina and gets a ghetto makeoverafter slowly winning over her new co-workers.
