Almost 13 years later, Kellie Pickler has added a new gig to her already stacked resume full of music and reality -- Daytime TV host! Related: This I Love Kellie Pickler Clip Will Have You In Stitches! The blonde crooner is now 1/2 of the CMT talk show Pickler & Ben, and we have to say, it's loads of fun! Especially since she gave us EXCLUSIVE scoop on her zany cohost Ben Aaron, girl boss executive producer Faith Hill, a surprise welcome gift from Ellen DeGeneres, and so much more! When asked if any current Daytime hosts offered up advice to the budding TV personality, Kellie gushed: "Everybody's been so positive and encouraging. Ellen [DeGeneres] actually sent us a gift. A little surprise gift, when we opened it, confetti shot out to the ceiling." That's so nice to hear! Guess it's not as cutthroat as some would think. Huzzah! Another person encouraging Kellie along the way is Faith, who just so happens to serve as her boss! On the country icon's hopes for the show, Miz Pickler shared: "She just wanted us to be ourselves. It's easier to be yourself than to try and be something you're not. And if you just tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything, right? She encouraged us to be us, have fun, do our thing, and that's what we do." On meeting her cohost Ben for the first time, she revealed: "Honestly, the moment that we met it was like Ben instantly became the big brother I never had. We were able to be ourselves and silly!" And keeping in the Ben theme, Kellie confessed there is one thing that sets Pickler & Ben apart from other shows: "Ben's dance moves. He's an incredible dancer, very flexible." Ow ow!! Besides dancing, they've done some crazy things so far for the cameras since the show's premiere on September 18: "We've done goat yoga, bungee jumping workouts, an America Ninja Warrior training. They built this course in the studio and I definitely have some battle scars from that. I'm pretty bruised up, but it was fun! Every guest we've had on the show is positive and uplifting. It's a feel-good show. And we get to be silly and it's safe for the whole family to watch, for kids. OUCH/Love it!! Read on for more interview HIGHlights (below): What is it like shooting in Nashville as opposed to NY and LA? "It's so wonderful. I mean, I love NY and I love LA. I think your vibe attracts your tribe so as long as I'm in good company, I'm blessed. This is the first talkshow they've ever done in Nashville and it's one of the fastest growing cities in the country right now. People are now coming to Nashville straight to our set to be in the audience." What does your real husband Kyle think of work husband Ben? "Oh my gosh, those two together is a mess. They get along so well. Kyle [Jacobs] loves Ben and Ginger [Zee] is so wonderful. We're so blessed to have each other in our lives." Your new song If It Wasn't For a Woman was written in tribute to your amazing grandmother. What would she think of the talk show? "I think my grandma would be so proud. Anything that's positive and uplifting. Anything that's going to be a safe place for people. She would absolutely love it. She was an incredible woman and I was so blessed to call her mom. I feel her with me today. I feel her wisdom and guidance." You can watch Pickler & Ben on CMT weekdays, check your local listing!

She spoke to the tabloid in 2011, before anyone cared and long before reportedly being paid $130K by Trump's crooked lawyer to keep her mouth shut. Related: Trump Compared Stormy To His Daughter... In the full account, the adult film actress says she can "definitely describe his junk perfectly" and drops details like names of others who were around and some cray shit you just could NOT make up! See the craziest tidbits from the interview (below)! Trump Thinks His Hair Gives Him Power Stormy: We were talking about all sorts of things. I remember he asked me like, "I gotta ask you a question and I don't want to get you offended" and I was like, "Trust me, you can't." I was expecting some sort of vulgar question and it wasn't; it was something about how much money I make off the royalties of something. And then I remember saying to him, "Ok well I have a question for you and it IS offensive." And I asked him about his hair. I was like, "Dude, what's up with that?" and he laughed and he said, "You know, everybody wants to give me a makeover and I've been offered all this money and all these free treatments." And I was like, "What is the deal? Don't you want to upgrade that? Come on, man." He said that he thought that if he cut his hair or changed it, that he would lose his power and his wealth. And I laughed hysterically at him. IT: What did he say? Stormy: He took it pretty well. He was like, "Yeah, yeah, my wife even did my son's hair like that, as a joke." I was like, "Yes, speaking of your wife…" IT: Did he mention her at all? Stormy: I mentioned her. I was like, "Yeah, what about your wife?" He goes, "Oh, don't worry about her." Quickly, quickly changed the subject. The Sex Was Boring But Not Terrible IT: Was the sex romantic? Stormy: It was textbook generic. It wasn't like, "Oh my God, I love you." He wasn't like Fabio or anything. He wasn't trying to have, like, porn sex. IT: Did he say anything to you during? Stormy: Nothing freaky. Like, "Oh yeah, that feels good. That's amazing." You know. It was one position, what you would expect someone his age to do. It wasn't bad. Don't get me wrong. Stormy: So anyway, the sex was nothing crazy. He wasn't like, chain me to the bed or anything. It was one position. I can definitely describe his junk perfectly, if I ever have to. He definitely seemed smitten after that. He was like, "I wanna see you again, when can I see you again?" Trump Apparently Didn't Use Protection While Cheating On His Wife... Ew IT: Did you use protection? Stormy: No. IT: Was that a conversation or was it kind of in the moment? Stormy: It was kind of in the moment. And I was really kind of upset about it because I am so, like, careful. The company I work for is condom-only. But I remember for a fact that we didn't because I'm allergic to latex. And I didn't go up there with condoms on me. I know that for a fact because 99% of men don't carry non-latex condoms on them, so I usually always have one in my backpack but I thought I was going to dinner, so I only had a tiny little cocktail purse. NFL Star Ben Roethlisberger Can Corroborate Part Of This Story Stormy: I ended up leaving and the next night I saw him again at a party. It was in the downstairs of the hotel I was in and he was hanging out with Ben Roethlisberger. When I got there, he was already with him. He had Keith, his bodyguard, call me and ask me if I was coming. When I got there, I called Keith and he told me where he was sitting and he brought me over. And he was hanging out with Ben for a long time. A couple other people around, nobody famous. Mostly people trying to hang on to them. Ben had just won the Super Bowl that year. Donald excused himself. He had to leave, I don't remember why, and he made Ben promise to take care of me. I stayed another 15-20 minutes and Ben Roethlisberger actually walked me up to my room that night because Donald told him to. Yeah, he walked me all the way to my hotel room. Trump Called Her A Lot -- And He Called Her "Honeybunch" Stormy: He always called me from a blocked number. He gave me — of course I had Keith, his bodyguard's number — he gave me his secretary's number, Rhona, which is his direct office line. Note: This checks out. Keith Schiller was Trump's bodyguard turned Oval Office Operations manager, and Rhona Graff was Trump's longtime secretary, and is still described as a sort of backdoor conduit for people who want to get in touch with the President. Stormy: Anytime I needed to get ahold of him, he always took my call or called me back within 10 minutes if he was on another call or wasn't there. I think she would call him and he would call me back from his cell if he wasn't in his office. The number was always blocked. He called me about every 10 days. He always called me "honeybunch." He's like, "How's it going, honeybunch?" He always started the conversation off, I think it was always his excuse to call, "I just read about you in such and such or there's a quote about you in magazine, I turned on my channel in my hotel room and guess whose face popped up?" Just like anytime he saw or read about me somewhere. I was super busy at the time. I've taken a year off because I had a baby, but I was everywhere at the time. That's when I did and was doing red carpets so there was pictures of me like all the time. That was always sort of his excuse to call: "Hey, did you know that you were on such and such? We need to get together to talk about your thing." Stormy Was Cheating Too Stormy: Anytime I called, he would call — it was funny if like my assistant or my boyfriend, who is now my ex-husband, he was my boyfriend at the time, was with me, I would always have him on speakerphone. I mean, it's Donald Trump. IT: Were you with your boyfriend when you slept with Donald Trump? Stormy: Yeah. IT: Did he know about the situation? Stormy: He didn't know that detail but he knew everything else. He called me all the time. Trump Has A Shark Phobia Stormy (describing her last encounter with Trump in Beverly Hills): We had dinner once again in his room. I had swordfish that time. Once again, no alcohol. The strangest thing about that night — this was the best thing ever. You could see the television from the little dining room table and he was watching Shark Week and he was watching a special about the U.S.S. something and it sank and it was like the worst shark attack in history. He is obsessed with sharks. Terrified of sharks. He was like, "I donate to all these charities and I would never donate to any charity that helps sharks. I hope all the sharks die." He was like riveted. He was like obsessed. It's so strange, I know. IT: So it's just you and him in the bungalow? Stormy: Yeah. But isn't that weird? So strange. So we finished dinner and we moved to the sofa so he could get a better view of Shark Week. Weirdly, that checks out too. Just check out these tweets from early July (aka, Shark Week) two years after she gave the interview: Sharks are last on my list - other than perhaps the losers and haters of the World! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 4, 2013 Sorry folks, I'm just not a fan of sharks - and don't worry, they will be around long after we are gone. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 4, 2013 The Affair Ended When Stormy Got Pregnant Stormy: Like I said, he always called from a blocked number and for the last year and a half I honestly don't know if he's called me or not because when I got pregnant with my daughter, I completely stopped taking calls that I didn't know. My fans don't know I had a baby. I left LA and lived in Vegas and basically hid out. I just really stopped taking calls from blocked numbers, numbers that I didn't know. I even stopped answering people that I did know, like other celebrities that I'm friends with that would just want to hang out or go out in Hollywood. Trump Lied To Stormy About Getting Her On Celebrity Apprentice The biggest thread throughout, and the subject Stormy says Trump talked to her about the most, was the lie that he would "100%" get her on Celebrity Apprentice: Stormy: And then he goes — I might be out of order with the conversation because it was so long ago. But he was like, "You know what? You're really smart. You're not dumb." And I was like, "Thanks, d---. What does that mean?" And he goes, "You should be on." And I was like, "Really? No, I don't think so." And he just kept thinking about it, I could see his little wheels turning. He goes, "No, it would be really, really good for you. People would think you're just this idiot with blond hair and big boobs. You would be perfect for it because you're such a smart businesswoman. You write and you direct and you produce and obviously you're hot and you're beautiful." And I was like, "Well, it's never going to happen. NBC is never going to let a porn star on." And he was like, "I can make it happen." And I was like, "You can't. I dare you." I was totally egging him on. And that was kind of like the thing, he was like, "No, we have to work on this for you." And that was sort of what he tried to bait me with for an entire year. He was like, "We have to get together to talk about your appearance on." But he was serious. I think when it hit him in the moment, he was like, "Yeah, this is going to be really good." And it could have. Of course, it would have been sensational. He just kept pushing for it, pushing for it. And he was like, "Would you do it?" I was like, "You know what, I'm not going to waste my energy on thinking about it, but if you actually have the power to make it happen, then I'll do it." IT: Did he promise you that? Stormy: Yeah, absolutely. He told me that he got a wild-card choice. That he could push one person through at will. IT: And he said it was going to be you? Stormy: Absolutely. 100% he promised me. Stormy: That's when he broke the news to me that it almost went through but there's somebody that had a problem and it got vetoed and blah blah blah. I was like, "I told you, you couldn't make it happen." I was pretty annoyed. IT: How do you feel about all this — the broken promises? What's your take? Stormy: I don't really know. I don't have any animosity or whatever. IT: Do you feel like a fool for believing him about? Stormy: No. I wasn't like going around telling everybody, "Oh my God, I'm going to be on." It's not like I bought into it 100%. I was challenging him to make it happen. I figured my shot was 50-50 even though he swore up and down it was 100. It's not just him. I never really get my hopes up on big stuff like that. Stormy says she decided to speak to the press after hearing about Trump hypocritically badmouthing the adult industry: Stormy: He went on some tirade how he would never be associated with someone…blah blah blah. But clearly I do a lot more than just pose for. So that just makes me wonder if he was just flat-out lying the whole time. I didn't have any unrealistic expectations of actually being on the show; I figured my chances were 50-50, I did believe that he was shy. So now I wonder if the whole thing was just a f---ing lie. IT: Just to impress you, to try to sleep with you? Stormy: Yeah. And I guess it worked. BTW -- don't feel too bad for Stormy. According to TMZ, her affair with Trump might end up making her some more money -- at her latest dancing gig. Apparently The Trophy Club in Greenville, South Carolina is using it to advertise! We guess you can't hold strip clubs to confidentiality agreements... [Image via MySpace.].....»»

Ben Affleck Faces Sexual Misconduct Questions On The Late Show & TODAY — WATCH!

Ben Affleck is facing his sexual harassment accusations head on. As you may know, the 45-year-old actor is currently on a press tour for Justice League — but interviewers would be remiss to not bring up Affleck's connection to the Harvey Weinstein allegations, as well as his own controversial behavior. On Thursday night, the father of three [...] Ben Affleck is facing his sexual harassment accusations head on. As you may know, the 45-year-old actor is currently on a press tour for Justice League -- but interviewers would be remiss to not bring up Affleck's connection to the Harvey Weinstein allegations, as well as his own controversial behavior. On Thursday night, the father of three appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, who didn't hesitate to ask Affleck the tough questions about the clear abuse of power against women in the industry. Even though the celeb nervously quipped, "This is a comedy show, correct?" initially, we applaud him for not shying away -- and encouraging everyone to believe the women (and men!) coming forward. Related: The Justice League Reviews Are In When asked specifically about the disgraced producer who helped begin his career, Jennifer Garner's ex said: "You know, for me, it was awful to see the extent of these terrible crimes. It was hideous. I haven't worked for Harvey in more than 15 years, but nonetheless, I felt this attachment. I did movies like Good Will Hunting, Shakespeare in Love and Chasing Amy—early movies that I really loved doing, when I still was totally brand new. And so, it sort of tainted that a little bit to realize while we were having these experiences and making these movies, there were people who were suffering and dealing with awful experiences. I didn't really know what to do with that, you know? It's hard to know." As we reported, the actor has since decided to donate his residual money from Miramax movies to RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network) and Film Independent: "I didn't want to sort of cash a check form the guy, and I thought, 'Maybe I can feel OK about it if it's going to a good cause.'" Colbert went on to give Affleck the opportunity to comment on his own allegations of "sexual impropriety" -- to which the Argo star said: "What I was accused of by a woman was of touching her breast while giving her a hug. I don't remember it, but I absolutely apologized for it. I certainly don't think she's lying or making it up. It's just the kind of thing we have to, as men, I think, as we become more aware of this, be really, really mindful of our behavior and hold ourselves accountable and say, 'If I was ever part of the problem, I want to change. I want to be part of the solution.' And to not shy away from these awkward or strange encounters we might have had where we're sort of navigating and not knowing." Referencing a clip that went viral earlier this week, Affleck said: "I just did an interview where somebody asked me a question—it was a serious question, and I kind of felt uncomfortable and didn't know what to say and laughed awkwardly. It's just a tricky thing to try to handle. I think the most important thing to do is to support the voices coming forward, believe them, and create a business where more women are empowered and in place so less of this happens, and so there is a way of reporting this stuff so that people can feel safe doing it." The Oscar winner also acknowledged the privilege he has as a male in the business, explaining: "I thought I had a sense of the scope of the problem and I thought I understood it, and the truth is I really didn't. I didn't understand what it's like to be groped, to be harassed, to be interrupted, talked over, paid less, you know, pushed around, belittled—all the things that women deal with, that for me as a man, I have the privilege of not having to deal with. Part of this, for me, has been listening to people I really care about and love as they tell me stories of stuff that has happened to them—this is men and women—and recognizing it's a real thing. I'm not spokesman. I'm not a superhero. I can't change it by myself. I can just be accountable for myself and my actions." LOUDER FOR THOSE IN THE BACK, BEN!! You can watch the full segment (below): Ben spoke about the same issue on Friday morning with Savannah Guthrie by talking about the current cultural shift because of the courageous #MeToo movement: "It certainly feels like a really important moment. It feels like a time when survivors are finding their voice, and people—and I include include myself in this—are really discovering the terrible extent of this problem here in our country. I certainly don't think it's just limited to Hollywood. But I expect if you see it this prevalent in this industry, it must extend to finance, tech and all those other places, and it's really disturbing. It's also inspiring to see people come forward and assert themselves. That's very moving." As for whether he knew about Harvey's disgusting behavior, the director said: "I knew he was sleazy and kind of a bully, but unfortunately that wasn't that uncommon. I was brand new to Hollywood. I was 24 years old. I had never made a movie. I didn't know much of anything, really. It really is a shame, because although I stopped working with Harvey a long time ago, those movies hold a special place in my heart. To now look back on it and think, 'Gosh, some other people were going through something really ugly, difficult and terrible and disturbing and terrifying while that was happening,' is kind of...I don't know ... The only thing I can think to do is give my residuals from my Harvey movies to a couple of organizations that I think are making a difference, and try to reconcile that. It's a way for me to feel better about that early stage of my career, when I made those movies with him." When Guthrie asked Affleck to set the record straight about Rose McGowan's claim that she told Ben in the past about being attacked by Weinstein, he replied: "I don't really want to get into other people's individual stories, because I feel like those are their stories and they're entitled to tell as much or as little of those as they want. I believe Rose. I support her. I really like and admire her tenacity, and I wish her the best." Related: Jennifer Garner & Casey Affleck Helped Ben Check Into Rehab Ultimately, Ben said he's dedicated to "looking inward" and being accountable for his actions: "That's all you can do, certainly as a man in my position and recognizing how fortunate I am, recognizing the privilege that I have. I'm also really trying to open my eyes and hold myself accountable, because that's all we can really do. It's a lot harder than pointing a finger at everybody else, really asking, 'What have I done that's crossed the line? How can I do better? How can I be more respectful, more inclusive, more mindful of this?' That's the kind of person that I want to be." As for what he would have done differently, the A-lister admitted: "There's plenty of jokes I wouldn't have made, or things I wouldn't have done. It's a time when—and it's happened almost overnight—there's a heightened level of awareness. One of the good things about that is the self-consciousness of, 'How am I fitting into the world here? How are my actions affecting other people? How is this interaction going to leave this person feeling?' It's easy to sort of gloss over that stuff and get self-involved. The hard thing is really, as I said, to be mindful and live in the present moment." Watch his interview on TODAY (below): While we think Ben's past actions are inexcusable, we do appreciate him stepping into the dialogue and acknowledging his wrongdoing head-on, while calling for empowerment of women. These are the tough conversations we should all be having! P.S. to end on a light note, watch Ben reveal that Donald Trump would demand to appear in any movies filmed at his properties (lol) (below)!
