ABC/Heidi Gutman(LOS ANGELES) -- TV personality Billy Bush and his wife, Sydney Davis, are calling it quits after two decades together, his rep tells ABC News.

"After almost 20 years of marriage, they have separated for the moment to evaluate their life together," says the rep. "They love each other and their children deeply and are committed to a bright future."

The former Access Hollywood and Today host, married Davis in 1998 and they have three daughters: Josephine, Mary and Lillie.

The 45-year-old journalist made headlines last year after a 2005 Access Hollywood tape of Bush and then candidate Donald Trump discussing women surfaced before the presidential election. Trump later called the conversation "locker room banter."

In the leaked tape, Trump bragged about his ability to grab and kiss women because he's "a star."

After the leak of the tape, Bush was eventually fired from Today. He apologized on social media for his part in the vulgar conversation and spoke to ABC News this year about the incident.

"I understand people's reaction. I agree. I also felt that way," he said.

© 2017 WARNER BROS. ENTERTAINMENT INC. AND METRO-GOLDWYN-MAYER PICTURES INC./Graham Bartholomew(LOS ANGELES) -- Oscar-winner Alicia Vikander sure looks the part of adventurer Lara Croft -- that is, the more realistically-proportioned version seen in the hit 2013 reboot of the video game Tomb Raider -- in the new trailer for the character's next cinematic go 'round.

Vikander's Lara Croft is a confident, fearless young woman, who in this case, undertakes a globe-trotting adventure after following clues left by her presumed-dead dad -- played in flashbacks by The Wire's Dominic West.

It seems an ancient tomb contains a world-shattering secret, one that a well-armed team of baddies, led by amazing Hateful Eight character actor Walton Goggins can't wait to unleash.

The coming attraction shows off big screen versions of the game's deadly traps and Lara's death-defying leaps, and Vikander is shown wielding not only the rebooted character's trusty bow and arrow, but in a nod to the '90s-era game, her trademark twin pistols.

Angelina Jolie first played the classic console character in 2001's Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and 2003's Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life.

Tomb Raider is set for a March 16, 2018 release.

Angelica Hale - NBC/Trae Patton(LOS ANGELES) -- The final live performance show of the current America’s Got Talent season took place at Hollywood’s Dolby Theater on Tuesday night, featuring the final 10 acts hoping to win the $1 million prize and a chance to be a headline act in Las Vegas.

Simon Cowell, Howie Mandel, Mel B and Heidi Klum were treated to some truly amazing performances, all introduced by host Tyra Banks.

America’s votes will decide who moves on and who goes home. The result will be announced during Wednesday’s live show on NBC.

 Here's a rundown of the final performances:

 Angelica Hill, who recently became a big sister, got the show started with her cover of Clean Bandit’s “Symphony,” bringing all four judges to their feet. Heidi told the nine-year-old, “You are only four-feet-tall, but you are a giant,” adding that in her opinion, Hale was the best singer of the season.

Acrobatic dance crew Diavolo jumped, slid and flew through the air, aided by props, including a huge see-saw ship. Simon declared that any casino owners watching on Tuesday should be booking them immediately.

Evie Clair, 13, who recently lost her father to cancer, delivered a moving rendition of Louis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World.” Howie said, “Our hearts and souls go out to you,” adding, “We all go through dark times. What gets us through is hoping and praying for that light at the end of the tunnel…Your voice is that light.”

Singer Kechi survived a horrific plane crash and burns over her entire body to make it to the AGT finals. Following her uplifting performance of Estelle’s “I Am a Conqueror,” Simon declared, “That wasn’t a song -- that was an anthem.” Mel B called the performance “powerful and moving.”

Darci Lynne Farmer, a 12-year-old ventriloquist, brought her friends Oscar and Petunia on stage and sang The Beatles’ “With a Little Help from My Friends.” All four judges considered Darci Lynne the odds-on favorite to take home the $1 million prize.

Ukrainian dance crew Light Balance, was the last act of the night and delivered a greatest-hits performance of sorts, reprising some of the costumes and elements that made them a hit with the judges. “This is like the Super Bowl, you think someone’s won it, then something else happens ten minutes later that changes it all!” said Simon. Heidi declared, “You should already be in Vegas and I’m going to see it again and again!”

The winning act of season 11 will be crowned when NBC's America's Got Talent returns on Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET.

ABC/Randy Holmes(LOS ANGELES) -- On Wednesday night, Jimmy Kimmel laced into Republican Senator Bill Cassidy of Louisiana for proposing new health care legislation that Kimmel said fails the "Jimmy Kimmel" test Cassidy himself had proposed in an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last May.

Cassidy appeared on the program after Kimmel had made an emotional plea for health care legislation in the wake of his newborn son's need for life-saving heart surgery.

But, Kimmel said, with new legislation that Cassidy and co-sponsor Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., have proposed, "Not only did Bill Cassidy fail the Jimmy Kimmel Test, he failed the Bill Cassidy Test." 

Kimmel said Cassidy "wasn't very honest" when he appeared on the show.  

"He said he wants coverage for all, no discrimination based on pre-existing conditions, lower premiums for middle class families and no lifetime caps.  And guess what? The new bill does none of those things," Kimmel said.

"Stop using my name," Kimmel said, "'cause I don't want my name on it.  There's a new Jimmy Kimmel Test for you, it's called a lie detector test, you're welcome to come by the studio and take it any time."

Kimmel also had words for critics on social media. "Before you post the nasty Facebook message saying I'm politicizing my son's health problems, I want you to know, I AM politicizing my son's health problems because I have to," he said.

"They're taking care of the people who give them money, like insurance companies, and we're all just looking at our Instagram accounts, liking things, while they're voting on whether people can afford to keep their children alive or not," Kimmel said of bill's backers. 

"Most of the Congress people who will vote this probably won't even read it. They want to us to do the same thing," Kimmel continued. "They want us to treat it like an iTunes service agreement. And this guy Bill Cassidy lied right to my face."

©2017 CBS Broadcasting Inc./Scott Kowalchyk(LOS ANGELES) -- Hillary Clinton stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday night to promote her book, What Happened, about the 2016 presidential election. 

The major topic of conversation, no surprise, turned out to be Russian meddling in the campaign -- just one of the many factors on which Clinton blames her electoral defeat at the hands of President Donald Trump.

"I don't think anybody can with a straight face say that the Russians did not set out to influence our election, and they did so," Clinton said. "This latest revelation about the way they bought ads on Facebook and targeted them -- we're gonna find out a lot more, Stephen."

Clinton explained Russian President Vladimir Putin's motives, and sounded a cautionary note.

"He wants to undermine how we see each other, how we respect each other, how we support our institutions and our society," Clinton said.  "I think they believe they had a good outing in 2016 and I think that they will be back in 2018 and 2020 unless we stop them."

She suggested that if collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia is proven -- and despite exhaustive investigation and seemingly endless coverage, it isn't -- people need to take political action.

"What you do is mobilize politically to express your will and your rejection of that kind of Russian involvement and coordination at the ballot box. I mean, that is where we settle our political differences, and that's where it should be," she said.

Clinton also told a story about Putin from her time as secretary of state.  "He takes me...into this inner sanctum with this huge desk and the biggest map of Russia I think exists, and he started telling me he's going here to tag polar bears. And then he says to me, 'Would your husband like to come?'" Clinton recalled. "I said, 'Well, I'll ask him, but if he's busy, I'll go.'"

Marvel - 2017

(NEW YORK) -- The trailer to Thor: Ragnarok is already retro, from its garishly-colored logo to its use of Led Zeppelin's "The Immigrant Song." But Nerdist has taken things a step further, and revised the coming attraction to make it look as if it's a trailer you'd see on a VHS tape in 1987, not 2017. 

From the hammy narration, to the non-widescreen aspect ratio, to the video tracking errors -- for the young, those are image warbles that had to be adjusted with a knob on your VCR -- Nerdist left no detail untouched. 

"He's back to Ragnarock-and-roll!" the narrator exclaims, as an electric guitar riffs. "Thor is fantasy! Thor is excitement! Thor is a world of fantasy and excitement beyond your imagination!"

The teaser even uses TV show footage of Lou Ferrigno as The Hulk battling Eric Allan Kramer as Thor from his appearance in the cheesy 1988 TV movie The Incredible Hulk Returns, in place of Chris Hemsworth.

All this, in addition to special effects that were deliberately downgraded to look as if the movie was made in the Reagan era. 

Thor: Ragnarok will open November 3 from Marvel Studios, which is owned by Disney, parent company of ABC News.

ABC/Lou Rocco(LOS ANGELES) -- Ryan Phillippe is pushing back against abuse accusations.

The actor's ex-girlfriend has slapped Phillippe with a lawsuit, claiming not only that he's using drugs -- including cocaine, ecstasy, mushrooms, and steroids -- but that on July 4, he attacked her, throwing the unidentified woman down a flight of stairs.

After he allegedly threw the woman down the stars, the star of USA's Shooter is also accused of grabbing, striking and kicking her, and then pushing her to the ground.  The complaint alleges Phillippe grabbed the woman hard enough to leave bruises on her arm.

Phillippe's camp disputes the claims.  "As a staunch advocate for the health, well-being and equality of women, Ryan is completely devastated that these false allegations have been made and circulated," reads a statement provided to ABC News. 

It adds, "Domestic violence is an incredibly serious issue and fabricated and proven false claims should not be used to unjustly slander the falsely accused.  The claims are false."

It should be noted that the Los Angeles Police Department took the alleged victim's report, but apparently didn't arrest the actor.  They did, however, issue a protective order against Phillippe, which is not uncommon.  

The L.A. City Attorney tells ABC News that it did get the case from the LAPD, and after a review, it was set for a hearing in the office.  Both parties were present, and were advised on the law and given guidance on how to avoid similar incidents in the future.  The office is taking no further action.

Just days ago, Shooter producers announced they were cutting the show's second season short because Phillippe broke his leg off-set, but didn't provide details.

ABC/Lorenzo Bevilaqua

(LOS ANGELES) -- Kim Kardashian West has everything a girl could want, but in Allure's October edition, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star admits she and husband Kanye West want to make sure that her kids don't have too much.

"We don't do gifts," says Kim. "[Kanye and I] talk about it all the time, about not getting too much and trying to be as grounded and well-rounded as possible...I don’t like presents anymore."

The couple was just as stingy when it came to celebrating their recent wedding anniversary, according to Kim, who reveals they "just did absolutely nothing. We spent two days in Santa Barbara, and we slept."

"You know what? I think we went to IHOP," she adds.

Kardashain West says it's the simple things that matter most to her, like a plastic jewelry box her 4-year-old daughter North gave her just before she traveled to Paris last year and was later robbed.

Kim admits feeling a little anxious before taking off on that trip because of recent terrorist attacks, and her daughter wanted to reassure her by giving her one of her treasured items.

"She gave me a little plastic treasure box, and she put her little jewels in it -- like fake little plastic jewels -- and she was like, ‘Mommy, this will keep you safe when you go to Paris," Kardashian West recalled. "To have something really sweet like that is more important to me than all the jewelry."

In addition to North, Kim and Kanye are parents to one-year-old son, Saint, and reportedly are expecting baby number three -- via a surrogate -- by the end of January.

Keeping Up with the Kardashians returns Sunday at 9 p.m. ET on E!

Taron Eggerton as Eggsy -- 20th Century Fox(LONDON) -- Kingsman: The Golden Circle -- the sequel to 2015's Kingsman: The Secret Service -- premiered in London on Monday.

Taron Egerton, who plays British secret agent Eggsy Unwin, said the movie is A LOT more of the same. 

"I think [director] Matthew [Vaughn] recognized that it was necessary that we do what we did in the first one that everyone loved," he says, "but...there's also lots of new and exciting things that you haven't seen before."

Explains Egerton, "It's like the first one, but with a shot of adrenaline. And Elton John."

The movie pairs the British secret agents with American counterparts, and the cast includes Jeff Bridges, Channing Tatum and Julianne Moore. 

"It was fun," Vaughn says about the expanded Kingsman universe. "I could play around with the culture clashes and get to work with some icons, so nothing to complain about."

Speaking of icons, it was a text from returning star Colin Firth that sealed the deal for Moore to play the film's villain.

"I wasn't going to take no for an answer this time," Firth says.  "I've been trying - 'cause Julianne and I worked together about seven years ago or something, and it was one of the best experiences I've ever had and we've stayed very good friends, but trying to reel her in on another project hasn't been the easiest thing."

As for Tatum, who plays a Statesman -- an American counterpart to the Kingsmen -- he just had fun with the accent and the language. "I'm pretty sure no one understood anything that I said in the whole movie," he explains. "I'm talking like, 'You smiling like a dead pig in sunshine' and stuff, so it's real silly, but super fun to do."

Kingsman: The Golden Circle opens in the U.S. on Friday.

Courtesy of VH1(LOS ANGELES) -- On Monday night, VH1 brought together an all star line up for its Hip Hop Honors: The '90s Game Changers event in Hollywood. The '90s style block party celebrated the golden era of hip-hop and shed light on the influential genre and how it crossed over into pop culture.

Hosted by Regina Hall, the event honored Master P, Jermaine Dupri, Martin Lawrence, director Hype Williams and Mariah Carey.

Comedy also had a place at the Hip Hop Honors. When Tischina Arnold went to present Martin Lawrence with his award, the Survivor's Remorse actress was repeatedly interrupted during her speech by Lamorne Morris, Affion Crocket and Regina Hall who were all dressed as memorable characters from Martin.

The event also featured a number of signature performances which included Fat Joe and Remy Ma performing Big Pun's “Not a Player,” Warren G performing “Regulate” with Ty Dolla $ign, Xscape performing TLC’s “No Scrubs” and Ty Dolla $ign doing a melodic rendition of Montell Jordan’s “This Is How We Do It.”

The event took a more serious turn when Pharrell Williams presented Hype Williams with his award. In a seemingly unrehearsed speech, Pharrell offered a heartfelt message about the current political climate asking everyone to "open your eyes." 

Lil Kim, Havoc and Fabolous hit the stage to perform "Quiet Storm" in tribute to the late Prodigy of Mobb Deep, who died earlier this year.

Yet, even with all the notable performances and speeches, DJ Khaled's son, Asahd Khaled, stole the show when he accompanied his father on stage to honor a true '90s icon: Mariah Carey.

After the Khaleds introduced Mariah, the singer sweetened the night by performing "Honey" and enlisting some of the song's most notable featured guests who included Da Brat, Jermaine Dupree, Mase and The Lox.

CBS ©2017 CBS Broadcasting, Inc./Trae Patton(LOS ANGELES) -- Emmy audiences at home, and in the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles, where stunned Sunday night, when, during his opening monologue, host Stephen Colbert brought out former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer. Spicer lampooned his own first White House press conference -- about the size of the audience at President Donald Trump's inauguration.

While Hollywood is not thought to be the most receptive crowd for Trump administration officials, Spicer said he had no trepidation about the appearance.

“It’s an honor,” Spicer told The Hollywood Reporter at an Emmys after-party Sunday night. “I have a lot of respect for folks who do what they do in film and on television, so it’s a real honor to be invited.”

Spicer said Colbert and the show's executive producer reached out to him and pitch him the idea -- which had him using a moving podium of the sort that Melissa McCarthy used to spoof Spicer during her Emmy-winning appearance on Saturday Night Live, and addressing the size of the Emmys audience.

“They came up with a concept, and I thought it was kinda funny," Spicer said. "I said I’d be there.”

So was Spicer worried about the kind of reaction he might get in a notoriously liberal room? “I was more worried about the logistical reactions,” he said. “I’ve never wheeled a podium before. The one I’m used to is pretty stationary.”

ABC/Eric McCandless(LOS ANGELES) -- The battle for the Mirror Ball trophy got underway Monday night as season 25 of Dancing with the Stars premiered.

No contestants broke away from the pack on the premiere.  But backstage, many told ABC Radio they were happy with their performances and excited about the competition.

Former NFL star Terrell Owens finished the night second to last, but, the night got his competitive juices flowing. "This whole thing is bringing about the kid in me again, so I'm just enjoying every moment of it," he said.

Musician Lindsey Stirling, who ended the night tied for first, naturally was just as excited. "I honestly don't think I could have done any better," she said. "We had a blast doing it, and when we finished it I just got the biggest smile on my face. It's like, it's something you can't explain, that electricity of pure happiness."

For ESPN reporter and paralympic gold medalist Victoria Arlen, who was paralyzed for 11 years, spend some of her teen years in a vegetative state, and only started walking around 18 months ago after 11 years in a wheelchair, the night was a triumph regardless of her score. "We danced and we did it and my feet did what they were supposed to do and it was just so surreal," she said. "I'm really blessed it was just an incredible moment."

Hamilton actor Jordan Fisher ended up tied for first and already was looking ahead to the rest of the competition. "I feel like we under-promised and over-delivered tonight, and I couldn't be more thrilled and excited for, hopefully for the rest of the season, should America keep us going," he said. 

Dancing with the Stars returns next Monday and Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

ABC/Eric McCandless(LOS ANGELES) -- Thirteen celebrities and their professional partners strutted their stuff Monday night on the season 25 premiere of Dancing with the Stars in their bid to win the coveted Mirror Ball trophy.

After a splashy production number, hosts Erin Andrews and Tom Bergeron welcomed the new cast and revealed some changes for the landmark season. This year, there are only three judges: Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli. Due to time limitations, the judges will be limited to one comment per couple. How they'll be able to contain Bruno all season remains to be seen.

Things got underway with NFL champion Terrell Owens and Cheryl Burke, returning for her 20th season. They danced a cha-cha to The Temptations' "Ain't Too Proud to Beg.” While Owens may be fleet-footed on the football field, Len cautioned him to watch his feet. The judges awarded a total of 15, which would end up being the lowest score of the night.  

1980s teen singing sensation Debbie Gibson danced a foxtrot with partner Alan Bersten to her own “Lost in Your Eyes.” Bruno told her to watch her arms and shoulders. The judges gave her 17.

HGTV’s Property Brothers star Drew Scott promised dancer Emma Slater he'd renovate her kitchen if they win. Their biggest problem is that he’s 6'4" and she’s 5'4". They came out, appropriately, to "Our House" by Madness, and while they were fun to watch, Len told Drew, "If you were a house, you would be a fixer-upper." The couple took a 16.

Shark Tank star and self-proclaimed cougar Barbara Cocoran bared her claws early in the pre-interview saying, "I would be happy with any of the guys here. I'll take anybody. Oh, yeah. Come to mama." Partnered with Keo Motsepe, their salsa did not impress the judges and she got the low score of the night with 14.

Hamilton star Jordan Fisher and Lindsay Arnold tangoed in the high score of the night, with 22. With his Broadway experience and gymnastics background, Fisher could be a real contender for the Mirror Ball trophy.

WWE star Nikki Bella proved to be fierce in her pre-interview, body slamming Artem Chigvintsev, but was less confident going in for her dance. Len said she had good body context but needed to stop looking down and earned 20.

In her pre-interview, ESPN personality and former American paralympian swimmer Victoria Arlen shared her heartbreaking tale of overcoming adversity. "I was paralyzed for 11 years," she said. "When I was 10, I got sick and slipped into a vegetative state for four years, and was pretty much written off as a lost cause. At 15, I started to slowly make my way back into the world. About a year and a half ago, I started walking after spending ten years in a wheelchair. I can't feel my legs. If I fall, I apologize. I think this is a big statement to myself as well as the people that wrote me off, I'm here, I lived, and I'm ready to dance."

Victoria and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy danced a cha-cha and earned a 19 from the judges.

Nick Lachey, who was a member of the boy band 98 Degrees, and whose brother won DWTS season two, said, "Because I was in a boy band, people assume I can dance. But 98 degrees was the non-dancing boy band." His cha-cha with Peta Murgatroyd earned them an 18 total.

Nick's wife Vanessa, danced with Nick's partner's husband, Maks. Their cha-cha impressed Len Goodman, who said, "Vanessa can dance!" as the couple took a 21 for their first dance.

Lindsey Stirling, a Billboard number-one artist who has appeared on the show danced a cha-cha with returning pro and two-time champion, Mark Ballas. Len said, "You come out with the cha-cha-cha, crisp, clean, lovely leg action, nice hip action. That, for me, is the dance of the night." The judges awarded her 22, tying for first place with Jordan Fisher.

Judges’ Scores:
Jordan & Lindsay – 22 out of 30
Lindsey & Mark – 22
Vanessa & Maks – 21
Nikki & Artem – 20
Victoria & Val – 19
Frankie & Witney – 19
Nick & Peta – 18
Derek & Sharna – 18
Sasha & Gleb – 18
Debbie & Alan – 17
Drew & Emma – 16
Terrell & Cheryl – 15
Barbara & Keo – 14

Dancing with the Stars 25 returns next Monday and Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

ABC/Randy Holmes(LOS ANGELES) -- Jamie Foxx is reportedly gearing up for another major biopic.

After winning the Best Actor Oscar for playing Ray Charles in 2004's Ray, Foxx will reportedly strap on the gloves of boxing legend Mike Tyson.

"It's on, as of right now," the British tabloid The Sun quotes Tyson as saying. "Jamie Foxx has signed on for it. Filming hasn't started yet, but it's going to happen.

Although Tyson didn't going into detail about what part of his life the rumored film would cover, the boxing champ did admit, "A lot of people aren't going to like the things I've done in my life."

In a January interview with Screen Rant, Foxx seemingly confirmed that he was a part of the Tyson biopic, calling it "a go" after being asked if he "were attached" to the project. The actor also revealed that Martin Scorsese, who's rumored to direct the project, was set to be a part of it as well.

"Yeah, he’s attached," Foxx said of Scorsese. "And...Mike Tyson’s life is one of the most amazing American stories."

ABC/Randy Holmes(LOS ANGELES) -- The woman who is reportedly extorting Kevin Hart for millions of dollars for his alleged infidelity during his marriage to his wife, Eniko Hart, has released a video explaining why she went after the Central Intelligence actor.

In a nearly five-minute video, obtained by TMZ and described by the gossip site, the unidentified extortionist shares an image of Hart in bed with an unidentified woman. The video then continues with a scene where two people, one suspected to be Hart, are seen having sex. Later, the man is seen putting on his clothes.

In a written explanation in the video, which TMZ does share, the extortionist breaks down why she felt the need to expose Hart.

"The REAL reason Kevin Hart orchestrated the Texas Hurricane Relief fund... was... to get ahead as he knew this damaging footage was one click away from being exposed as the liar and cheater he is," the explanation reads, in part. 

"Kevin Hart was privy to me wanting to expose him, as I have made countless attempts to expose this information to various blogs, in an attempt to also get paid," the video text goes on, adding that Hart was "tipped off" and "most likely paid them off as they would not take on the story.  Hence why I am exposing him in this way (FOR FREE)."

According to the extortionist, Hart was "drinking, doing drugs and having sex with multiple women" in Las Vegas while she was there with her friends. The woman says she felt appalled seeing Kevin "blatantly disrespect his marriage."

"For the record, I do not claim to be a saint," reads the message.  "I know exactly who and what I am.  The difference is, I am not married, nor do I pretend to be perfect."

As previously reported, Hart went on Instagram on Saturday evening to apologize to his wife and kids for his actions. Although he did not specify what he exactly did, his management released a statement on Sunday to ABC News, saying he was being extorted.

“Someone tried to set Kevin up in a failed extortion attempt. As law enforcement is involved, we cannot comment further as it could affect the investigation,” the statement read.
