ABC NewsAfter being dropped by NBC and Univision, Donald Trump's Miss USA Pageant has found a home on the Reelz cable network.

“The decision on the part of REELZ to acquire the rights to the Miss USA Pageant was based on our belief that this special event, and the women who compete in it, are an integral part of American tradition,” said Stan E. Hubbard, CEO of Reelz, in a statement on Thursday. "“As one of only a few independent networks, we decided to exercise our own voice and committed ourselves to bringing this pageant to American viewers everywhere."

The pageant, scheduled to take place July 12, was dropped by NBC and Univision in response to comments Trump made during a speech June 16 announcing his bid for the Republican presidential nomination in which he referred to Mexican immigrants as "bringing drugs" and "bringing crime" to this country, and being "rapists."  Since then Trump has filed a $500 million lawsuit against Univision claiming the network had no contractual right to terminate its deal with him; Trump also has suggested that he might sue NBC.

Anthony Harvey/Getty ImagesMonths after being named People magazine's Most Beautiful Woman, Sandra Bullock is speaking out against what she calls the media's shaming attacks on women's looks and age.

"I feel like it's become open hunting season in how women are attacked and it's not because of who we are as people, it's because of how we look or our age," she tells E! News.

"I'm shocked -- and maybe I was just naïve, but I'm embarrassed by it. My son is getting ready to grow up in this world and I'm trying to raise a good man who values and appreciates women, and here we have this attack on women in the media that I don't see a stop happening."

Mother to 5-year-old Louis, Bullock says she feels for kids growing up today, especially girls.

"Little girls are having the hardest time with bullying and the Internet -- somebody with a very large hand and big voice needs to put a stop to it," Bullock says.  "We need to stop.  We are harming girls and women in a way, at a speed that it's scaring me. It's really scaring me, so I would love for someone to help put a stop to this."

The good news, says Bullock, is seeing how women in her industry have stuck together.

"You'd be surprised at the love that you have in our crazy industry," Bullock says. "The women have bonded together and have sort of become this tribe of trying to take care of each other and be there for each other in a way, because the minute you step out it's an onslaught."

Gabriel Olsen/FilmMagicAnt-Man star Paul Rudd got a huge honor Wednesday: the 2,554th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Rudd seemed truly overwhelmed to get a star, saying, "This is incredible."

He was impressed that his Ant-Man co-star Michael Douglas showed up to say a few words. Douglas talked about not being impressed the first time he met Rudd at a cafe in New York: "He looked like a homeless guy."

But Rudd won him over on the Ant-Man set. Douglas said, "I've never seen anybody have so much fun in my life."

And Rudd, known for being a funny guy, got emotional talking about his wife and kids, commenting, "I love my job, but that pales in comparison to how much I love you."

Marvel's Ant-Man hits theaters July 17.  Marvel is owned by Disney, which also owns ABC News.

Late Show with Stephen Colbert/YouTubeWhile the set for his new CBS late-night program is being built, Stephen Colbert is apparently itching to get behind a chat show desk -- which, he explained, was why he recently hosted a Michigan public access show called Only in Monroe.

The footage was posted on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert YouTube channel Wednesday night.

While not in his Colbert Report persona, Colbert was certainly in character, deadpanning through the 41-plus minute program as any local host would, on location in the local access channel's studio, which Colbert said was the perfect channel "to binge watch 2014 city council meetings. Spoiler alert: don't get too attached to that free parking on Cass Street.  It doesn't end well."

Colbert also performed live spots for local eateries and interviews with local newsmakers, including "a local Michigander who is making a name for himself in the competitive world of music...Marshall Mathers." 

Colbert acted as if he'd never heard of Mathers -- who is of course rapper Eminem -- sometimes to Eminem's apparent disbelief, and checked the Detroit native's Michigan bona fides by quizzing him on fellow Michigan native Bob Seger's songs.  Eminem played along, singing the hooks from a few, though most he didn't know.  "You claim to be from Michigan, but you don't know these songs," Colbert chided him. 

"So, where do you hope this goes," Colbert asked about Mathers' music. "Is it a career? A hobby?" He also warned Eminem, "This is a tough business, do you have a fallback position? Carpentry?  You just have to make plans for when the dreams die."

"I'm so confused right now," said Eminem at one point, who was there to promote the boxing movie Southpaw. "I'm trying to figure out if you're serious..." 

Em clearly was in on the joke, however.  He even read entries from the Monroe Community Calendar, and waved goodbye with Colbert through an absurdly long end credits sequence.

The Late Show with Stephen Colbert premieres September 8 at 11:35 p.m. Eastern on CBS.

Jason Merritt/Getty Images via ABCRapper Iggy Azalea insists that her supposed feud with pop singer Britney Spears is nothing more than a media creation.

Much has been made of Iggy's online comment regarding their duet "Pretty Girls," and how the two  artists allegedly threw shade at one another. But on Tuesday Iggy said she is "really saddened" that the media is "trying to create a 'beef'" between her and Britney.

She tweeted, "We remain friends and i haven't said anything negative at all about her. Does wishing we had promoted a single more make me the bad guy?"

"i feel like the media wants women in music to get out and mud wrestle each other," the Australian rapper continued. "As a woman i take great offense. Women in the media should be able to have a grown up and subjective opinion without it being anything more than that. its disappointing. No one is throwing 'shade' or 'shots' on either side of the table. The girl is my friend and i support her 100%."

Iggy concluded, "i feel like the press just wants to see girls be overtly sexual to one another, and have no real opinion other than 'i love it!' Im over it. Women in music are not the same as a teen drama. Stop making us all out to be, we are business women & artists. Not mean girls."

Last weekend, Iggy responded to a fan to explain why “Pretty Girls” wasn’t a hit. "Its difficult to send a song up the charts without additional promo and tv performances etc," she wrote. "unfortunately I'm just featured....”

The comment was perceived by some as a dis directed at Britney. For her part, Brit tweeted, "Can’t wait to get back to Vegas. So thankful I have shows for the rest of the year to look forward to... #YouWantAPieceOfMe," in what may or may not have been a reference to Iggy cancelling her tour.

Nino Munoz/Big Machine RecordsAs America prepares to celebrate its independence July 4, country music superstar Tim McGraw continues to celebrate the veterans who've helped fight for the country.

So far, on the Shotgun Rider 2015 Tour he’s given away six mortgage-free homes to deserving soldiers, with 30 more members of the armed forces set to get new houses by the tour’s end through his partnership with Chase and Operation Homefront.

“[These are] people who have given us security for a lot of years,” Tim reflects, “and we’re able to do that back for them in a small way.” In the three years he's worked with Chase and Operation Homefront, they’ve partnered to give away 114 homes in 30 states.

Tim’s next tour stop with singers Billy Currington and Chase Bryant is July 10 in Raleigh, North Carolina.

C Flanigan/WireImageWhen Ben Affleck thanked his now-estranged wife Jennifer Garner at the 2013 Oscars for working on their marriage for "10 Christmases," he apparently wasn't kidding.  A source tells US Weekly magazine the couple nearly divorced three years ago, and was participating in regular couples therapy to try to salvage their marriage.

According to the source, the two were going to split three years ago when their youngest child, Samuel, was born, but "you know how it is -- baby comes and solves the issues for a bit but it's just a Band-Aid.  It hasn't been working for ages."

The couple reportedly wanted to make their marriage work for the sake of their three kids, who in addition to Samuel include nine-year-old Violet and six-year-old Seraphina.  Now that the marriage is over, though, the couple will still stay together -- sort of -- for the sake of the children.  According to a source close to the situation, the actors, who announced their split one day after their 10th wedding anniversary, will continue to live on the same property.

"It's obviously a very sad time for both of them," the source told ABC News. "They have been trying to save the marriage for years, but they know it's the right thing for their family and for them. The kids will continue to come before everything."

CBS Photo Archive/Getty ImagesThe General Lee will no longer race across your TV screens -- at least not on TV Land.  The cable network has pulled re-runs of the show from its schedule.

“We can confirm that we removed Dukes of Hazzard from the schedule. We have no further comment," a TV Land rep tells ABC Radio.

TV Land hasn't revealed why the show was pulled, but the move comes amid the growing debate in the U.S. about the display of the Confederate flag, in the wake of last month's racially-motivated shootings at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, SC.  The signature 1969 Dodge Charger that's so central to The Dukes of Hazzard has the Confederate flag painted on its roof, and is named the General Lee, after Confederate Army General Robert E. Lee.

Several states have removed Confederate flags and other symbols from public places in the wake of the Charleston shootings, while South Carolina is currently debating whether to remove the flag from the statehouse grounds.  Many retailers have followed suit, no longer selling items that feature the Confederate flag.  Just last week, Warner Bros. said it would no longer license products featuring the General Lee.

Samir Hussein/Getty ImagesAmber Heard is more than Johnny Depp's wife.  The Magic Mike actress, who tied the knot with the famed actor in February, has been acting since the mid-2000s and has several movies out this year including The Danish Girl opposite Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne.

But before meeting Depp and eventually falling in love, the actress, 29, dated artist and photographer Tasya van Ree and came out as bisexual in 2010 during a GLAAD event. Since then, she's never tried to hide her true self when speaking to the press.

"I don’t want to have to deny my sexuality in order to be me," she told the Times of London. "But I don’t want to have to be defined by it. I’m fundamentally opposed to trying to edit myself to be palatable or popular. I don’t give a f***. I fight, but I shouldn’t have to.”

Heard added, "I never thought I would get married. But I’ve always loved who I’ve loved."

She also opened up about being an activist and being married to one of the most famous men on the planet.

"I’ve never let anyone else decide that for me, the [gay] community as much as mainstream society," she said, speaking about love. "The ironic thing is that’s what we’re fighting for: to not have your preferences mediated by others’ prejudices. In 32 U.S. states you can still be fired just for being bisexual. I don’t know how a country full of the descendants of free-spirited people can [support] the government dictating aspects of our private lives.”

About her high-profile relationship, Heard said, "It’s been a steady rise in exposure, pressure and accountability over the years. It ebbs and flows. It’s life on the run. I always wanted to be a vagabond. I’m a gypsy now, living out of a suitcase, constantly on the road. I like the travel, but I don’t like to fight to have anonymity."

As for any split rumors, she fires back, "I don’t care. I’m a happily married woman.”

ABC/Lou RoccoDonald Trump filed a $500 million lawsuit against Univision Tuesday over the network's decision to terminate its contract with Trump's Miss Universe Organization and not broadcast the upcoming Miss USA pageant, according to New York state court records.

The Spanish-language broadcaster recently announced it would not show the July 12 Miss USA pageant after Trump made "insulting remarks about Mexican immigrants" during a speech announcing his presidential candidacy.

"When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best," Trump said in the speech. "They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people."

When asked by ABC News last week whether he regretted those comments, Trump said, "Not at all. I said it about people from all over. I didn’t say it about Mexico -- I said people from all over."

Trump believes that the termination of the contract was a "politically motivated attempt to suppress" his freedom of speech "as he begins to campaign for the nation's presidency," according to the complaint, filed in Manhattan Supreme Court.

The suit, which alleges breach of contract and defamation, also claims that Univision pressured NBC to cut ties with Trump and the Miss Universe Organization on Monday.

Univision called the suit both "factually false and legally ridiculous" in a statement.

"We will not only vigorously defend the case, but will continue to fight against Mr. Trump's ongoing efforts to run away from the derogatory comments he made on June 16th about Mexican immigrants," the statement said.

NBC announced earlier this week it will not broadcast the Miss USA pageant, and on Tuesday, Dancing with the Stars' Cheryl Burke and MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts said they will no longer host the event. The pageant will be streamed on MissUniverse.com/MissUSA.

Warner Bros.You may remember from 2012’s Magic Mike that Channing Tatum’s Mike was leaving the stripping business to build his own custom furniture business. Let’s just say neither the business or his relationship went as planned, so when his old buddies -- Richie (Joe Manganiello), Tarzan (Kevin Nash), Ken (Matt Bomer) and Tito (Adam Rodriguez) -- decide to take a road trip for one last hurrah at the annual stripper convention in Myrtle Beach, Mike can’t resist the temptation to turn back the clock and dry-hump strangers all the way up the Florida and South Carolina coasts.

On the way to the convention, Mike meets Amber Heard’s Zoe, an aspiring photographer who also happens to be a stripper. Zoe doesn’t really serve as Mike’s love interest, but more of somebody he’s interested in getting to know a little better. On a stage, in front of several hundred strangers.

There’s very little dramatic tension in Magic Mike XXL. The outcome is never in doubt. Really, the only question needing an answer in this movie is whether they can find an emcee to replace Dallas, played by Mathew McConaughey in the first film.  That’s where strip club owner Jada Pinkett Smith’s Rome comes in, who’s kind of like the Willie Wonka of the male stripping business -- she’s the candyman.

Truthfully, Magic Mike XXL is a story that could’ve been told in 20 minutes. On the flip side, even if male strippers aren’t your thing, it’s impossible not to be impressed by Tatum’s dancing ability and Manganiello’s comedic timing. I just wish Manganiello’s two funniest scenes didn’t feel like they were three hours apart. This film’s pacing is atrocious.

The movie’s best attribute is it looks great, and that has everything to do with Magic Mike director Steven Soderbergh’s decision to act as the director of photography this time, while Gregory Jacobs, his longtime first unit assistant director, takes the reins.  Few people know how to utilize depth of field better than Soderbergh, but here it’s almost as if he’s attempting to make the movie look beautiful to make up for an incredibly boring and predictable story.

When Channing Tatum and friends aren’t thrusting their hips in someone’s face -- and that’s putting it mildly -- Jacobs and writer Reid Carolin attempt to craft a buddy road trip movie with the heart and humor of the first Magic Mike. While some of the humor remains, the heart is gone -- and that heart was Matthew McConaughey.

I’m sure some will find Magic Mike XXL arousing, but not anyone whose idea of a turn-on is a good movie.

Two out of five stars.

Photo by Bauer-Griffin/GC Images(NEW YORK) -- Hollywood couple Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have decided to divorce after ten years of marriage.

They issued a statement saying, "After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce.  We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children whose privacy we ask to be respected during this difficult time."

They added, "This will be our only comment on this private, family matter. Thank you for understanding."

Garner, 43, and Affleck, 42, married in 2005; they have three children: Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3.

The pair met in 2001 on the set of Pearl Harbor and went on to star alongside each other in the 2003 film Daredevil.  Years later, Affleck admitted that’s where and when he fell in love with Garner.

"That’s where I found my wife," he later told Playboy. "We met on Pearl Harbor, which people hate, but we fell in love on Daredevil."

They got engaged in April 2005 and married two months later in a private ceremony in the Turks and Caicos while Garner was four months pregnant with their daughter, Violet.

Garner has been open about how having children changed their marriage.  She recently told Yahoo! Parenting, "You just go on a ride together because you don’t know who you’re going to be when you first have a baby and you don’t know who [your partner] is going to be. You have to just hang in there while you figure it out -- and have a lot of patience for each other."

Last year, Garner told InStyle, "When we had our first [child], we had only been together a year. We were babies. It happened so fast, I hardly remember what we were like before the kids got here."

She also told the magazine that she and Affleck had a "mindful" marriage.  "You can't expect to be courted all the time, and I don't want to court him right now; I don't have the energy!" Garner said. "But we're definitely in a very mindful place where we're making an effort to be together, do things at the same time, and be loving."

For his part, Affleck made headlines when he accepted his best picture Oscar in 2013, for Argo, and thanked his wife for "working on our marriage," adding, "there's no one I'd rather work with."
