Ryan Seacrest remains unmarried and he parried a question from ET with deflected humor.
At the KIIS FM's iHeartRadio Jingle Ball last Friday night, e he said his family isn't pressuring him to get married to his girlfriend Shayna Taylor because they're too distracted by his sister Meredith having a baby.
“They don't even know I exist,” he said, before adding that he’s so excited to be a first-time uncle, he’s been honing his baby-handling skills.
Kelly Clarkson performed "Heat" on "The Voice" this week. This was a strange week where Adam Levine had his two remaining team members in the bottom three. One was going to be eliminated for sure. But one of his singers Reagan Strange was not there for some unspecified illness. Instead of supporting DeAndre Nico, who did perform, he pushed folks to vote for Strange, who did end up moving forward. There was a lot of outrage on social media though folks did appreciate Clarkson supporting Nico. She will be performing for Carson Daly's New Year's show, taping her part in advance.
I cover both "American Idol" and "The Walking Dead." A few years ago, the show used a song written by season 9 winner Lee DeWyze. Now season 10 singer Paul McDonald is dating Emily Kinney, who was Maggie's sister Beth on "Walking Dead" from season two through five.
She is a musician as well and after they started dating, they also began collaborating professionally as Sweetheart Deal.
“I mean, we’re both artsy. We’re kind of outside the box in a lot of things. And we both work real hard,” McDonald told Yahoo Entertainment.
