Kristin Chenoweth impressed with her gown at the Oscars 2013
Kristin Chenoweth is herself leading the fashion-field at the Oscars in Los Angeles, rocking a dazzling sparkly gown while helming ABC's coverage of the biggest night on the movie calendar. Chenoweth gushed about her fellow celebrities' fashion choices on the red-carpet, though she herself won high praise on Twitter for her eye-catching gown.
"J. Law's dress is spectac, but I may like Kristin Chenoweth's best. I like the black frothiness...and her cute topknot," said one fan on the micro-blogging site. Another said: "Just realised Kristen Chenoweth has Tinkerbelle hair. I love it a bit more now. And the sparkly dress is awesome." Another user somewhat meanly suggested, "Adele looks like an ogre next to Kristen Chenoweth! Looks good in that sparkly dress though!" Though her gown won plenty of acclaim, Chenoweth's interviewing techniques left plenty to be desired. "Amanda seyfried [with] Kristin Chenoweth: Holy hell was that interview a trainwreck. #oscars," one viewer tweeted, while another said, "Honestly, what is with Kristin Chenoweth?

Robin Roberts made a return to Good Morning America, after five months of absence, after receiving treatment for MDS.
"I have been waiting 174 days to say this: 'Good Morning America!'" GMA host Robin Roberts said on her return to the show.

"Faith, family and friends have brought me to this moment and I am so full of gratitude."

Fans of Good Morning America could well be waiting until mid 2013 for the return of their beloved host Robin Roberts.
Roberts recently underwent major hospital treatment for bone marrow transplant after she was diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndrome. The disease attacks the blood and bone marrow and even though she’s on track to recovery, her immune system is still weakened, meaning that an early return to work could turn out to be hugely problematic for her health.
According to TMZ, it’s looking as though Roberts will be unable to return to the show until May 2013 at the earliest and June is looking a more likely prospect. Several sources connected to Good Morning America told the news site that doctors are “pleased with her progress and say she’s right on schedule.” That’s good news for Roberts, but still frustrating for the TV presenter, who is said to realize that the rest is necessary, though it sounds as if she’s itching to get back to work.
