Gayle King Fires Back at Fox News’ Jesse Watters for Confusing Her with Robin Roberts

Scott Kowalchyk

Gayle King’s big interview with R. Kelly got plaudits from all over this week, including from Fox News, where The Five co-host Jesse Watters praised the CBS This Morning host for staying calm as the singer and accused child rapist ranted and raved in her face. There was one problem, however.

“Hats off to Gayle King for totally redeeming herself after the Smollett fiasco,” Watters said. His co-host Dana Perino had to correct him. It was Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts who interviewed actor Jussie Smollett after his alleged attack. “Oh, I knew that,” he said before ultimately apologizing for the mix-up.

“Were you happy to hear that Fox News’ Jesse Watters gave you props for this interview after that Jussie Smollett interview you did?” Stephen Colbert asked King during her Late Show victory lap Thursday night.

‘Chicago Med’ Sneak Peek: Robin Returns — What Does That Mean for Connor?

Remember when Robin Charles (Mekia Cox) and Dr. Rhodes (Colin Donnell) were in a super serious relationship and she just up and left town? She returns during the Wednesday, February 19, episode of Chicago Med — and it’s safe to assume it will shake things up inside the hospital.

“She comes back because Dr. Charles’ ex-wife is in need of some help at the hospital. One of the big things between Connor and Robin is that fact that she just sort of left, she disappeared,” Donnell, 36, told Us Weekly exclusively. “He had to figure out somewhat to be OK with that. I think there are a lot of feelings that are still unexplored there.”

Of course, it doesn’t help that Dr. Rhodes is currently single again following a falling out with Ava Bekker (Norma Kuhling) — did she sleep with his dad or what? Regardless, “it’s going to be complicated” with his ex back in town, the former Arrow star added.

He also noted that there may be some interactions between Ava and Robin: “It’s going to be super awkward.”

In Us Weekly’s exclusive sneak peek of her return, Robin sits down with her dad (Oliver Platt) and her mom, CeCe (Paula Newsome), who has never been introduced on the show.

“You did good there,” Dr. Charles says to his ex-wife when Robin gets up to take a call. She corrects him: “We did good.”

However, she then reveals some bad news – and why she’s back in Chicago. “My lymphoma is back and my old chemo regime isn’t working,” CeCe tells Dr. Charles. “I already got third and fourth opinions and the only thing left is clinical trials.”

Chicago Med airs on NBC Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Singer Robin Thicke surprised his pregnant girlfriend with a marriage proposal.

The 41-year-old “Blurred Lines” singer proposed to model April Love Geary with friends and family. She announced the couple’s engagement in an Instagram post Monday as a video shows Thicke asking the 24-year-old Geary to marry him and her writing “YES YES 1000x YES.”

Robin Givens Is Heading To OWN In New Scripted Drama

Actress Robin Givens has her OWN show. The now 53-year-old actress who had a tumultuous, brief marriage to boxer Mike Tyson in the 80’s, is headlining a new OWN show, Ambitions, created by Will Packer and Jamey Giddens. She and veteran TV actress Essence Atkins will co-star in a drama about two women navigating their lives in the view of Atlanta’s top power players.

Here’s a description of the show via Shadow and Act:

Givens will lead the cast as Stephanie Carlisle,’ the wife of Atlanta Mayor Evan Lancaster (White), whose true loyalty is to her own family’s prestigious law firm, where she is the latest in a long line of distinguished lawyers. Stephanie desperately wants to be in charge of the Carlisle family law firm and quietly fumes about her father Stephen’s condescending assertion that she’s simply not ready yet.

Atkins will play Amara, a lawyer in U.S. Attorney’s Office who has newly arrived in Atlanta with her husband, Titus (Cross). Originally from Texas, she is quickly gaining attention from the U.S. Attorney’s Office as a diligent prosecutor but disappoints her supervisor by turning down the offer to run point on a major local case.

White has been cast as Evan Lancaster the Mayor of Atlanta, who is married to attorney Stephanie Carlisle (Givens). Evan’s political ambitions seem to cloud his judgment as he is willing to do anything to get to the next level in his career.

Cross will play Titus, an attorney who recently moved with his wife Amara (Atkins) to Atlanta. Titus has been hired as in-house counsel for a big pharma company run by Hunter Purifoy, who is fighting a class action suit brought by the powerful Carlisle family.

Evans plays the role of Rondell, Atlanta Mayor Evan Lancaster’s (White) sister, who runs a not-quite-profitable restaurant called Thelma’s Place.

Page plays the role of Bella, a fashion designer in Atlanta who designs all of Stephanie Carlisle’s (Givens) dresses for her.

Giddens, the show’s creator, is an exec producer and writer.  He is the co-owner of the popular soap opera website, DaytimeConfidential.com and wrote on the Urban Movie Channel’s The Rich and the Ruthless starring Victoria Rowell.

Robin Actor Says Batman Is a Killer in DC’s Titans

While talking to IGN about his role in the upcoming live-action Titans show on the DC Universe subscription service, Dick Grayson/Robin actor Brenton Thwaites explained that it was Batman’s murderous methods that drove Robin away, which is why the show finds Robin fighting crime solo in Detroit instead of Gotham.

“Batman is a killer and Robin wants to get away from that,” Thwaites said. “The idea is that he doesn’t want to become a killer himself. And although these guys that he’s fighting are bad and they deserve, you know, they deserve what he’s dishing out, it seems, he believes that when you kill someone you crossed the line and you become almost as bad as them, so it’s pretty clear in the series that he was with Batman, Batman crossed the line and he was teaching me to do the same thing, and he’s trying to break away from that.”
