Tuning in to TV: Bachelorette, fiance deciding on wedding plans
On Sunday’s finale, the 26-year-old Ms. Maynard revealed she chose Mr. Holm, a 27-year-old entrepreneur from Salt Lake City, over race-car driver Arie Luyendyk Jr., the son of Indianapolis 500 winner Arie Luyendyk.
If the couple do decide to marry on television, they won’t be the first “Bachelor” or “Bachelorette” couple to do so.
One thing Ms. Maynard and Mr. Holm do have planned is to end their long-distance relationship as soon as possible. Mr. Holm said he’s hoping to move to Charlotte, N.C., in August in time for Ms. Maynard’s daughter, Ricki, to go back to school.
“I want to get there and hang out with her and get into daily life with her and with Emily. Figure it out together,” said Mr. Holm. “And then plan a wedding from there. And figure out where we want to go, whether it’s moving together as a family or staying there. We want to get into the family routine.”
In a posting on Twitter, Mrs. Osbourne addressed “my darling” fellow judge Howard Stern and said, “money is not the reason I’m not returning” to the show. Her tweet trailed off with “it’s because ….” and didn’t elaborate.
“This is coming out of context and sort of spontaneously, and we don’t even know what’s going on. And it’s probably much ado about nothing,” Mr. Greenblatt said, declining to comment further.
Ms. Osbourne has a multiyear contract with the series, said a person familiar with the production. The person, who lacked authority to discuss the issue publicly, spoke on the condition of anonymity.
“America's Got Talent,” which is now airing its seventh season, added Mr. Stern to the judges’ panel this year and moved the production from Los Angeles to New York to accommodate him. Howie Mandel is the show’s third judge.
Mrs. Osbourne’s representative did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Asked whether Mr. Stern intended to stay with the show, Don Buchwald, his agent, responded by email that “we do not respond to inquiries of this sort.”
The network announced a 10-episode version of the Bram Stoker novel on Tuesday. Jonathan Rhys Meyers has the title role as the vampire set in Victorian-era England.
Mr. Meyers is known for starring in the Showtime series “The Tudors,” and for the TV film “Elvis.”
‘Medical Center’s‘ Everett dies at age 75
Chad Everett, the blue-eyed star of the 1970s TV series “Medical Center” who went on to appear in such films and TV shows as “Mulholland Drive” and “Melrose Place,” has died. He was 75.
Mr. Everett played sensitive doctor Joe Gannon for seven years on “Medical Center.” The role earned him two Golden Globes and an Emmy nomination.
With a career spanning more than 40 years, Mr. Everett guest starred on TV series including “The Love Boat,” “Murder, She Wrote” and “Without a Trace.” Mr. Everett most recently appeared in the TV series “Castle.” His films credits included “The Jigsaw Murders,” “The Firechasers” and director Gus Van Sant’s “Psycho.”
Mr. Everett was born in South Bend, Ind., and graduated from Wayne State University before moving to Los Angeles and becoming a contract player with MGM.
In perhaps his most memorable recent film role, Mr. Everett played an aging lothario who engages in a steamy audition with a young ingenue portrayed by Naomi Watts in director David Lynch’s “Mulholland Drive”.
Guilty plea entered in ‘19 Kids’ extortion case
An Iowa woman has pleaded guilty to attempting to extort the parent company of cable network TLC by threatening to reveal an alleged affair involving a cast member of the popular reality show “19 Kids and Counting.”
Teresa Hunt entered a guilty plea Wednesday to one count of extortion during a hearing in federal court in Davenport. Sentencing was scheduled for Nov. 9.
Prosecutors say Ms. Hunt sent letters to TLC’s parent company, Discovery Communications Inc., claiming to have photographs of a cast member of “19 Kids and Counting” that would prove an inappropriate sexual relationship. The show follows Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar and their 19 children.
Prosecutors say Ms. Hunt demanded Discovery either cancel the show or pay her $10,000, or else she would leak the photos to a tabloid.
