"<a href="http://www.eonline.com/news/564063/maksim-chmerkovskiy-i-m-done-dancing-on-dancing-with-the-stars?cmpid=tweol-manual" target="_blank">I'm done dancing</a>," Chmervoskiy said on<em> The View</em>. "I feel like it's time,” he went on, adding, "I loved the experience."</p> <p>The last time Chmerkovskiy left <em>Dancing with the Stars,</em> it had been on less than pleasant terms. At the time, Chmerkovskiy had a lot of criticism for ABC’s dancing show and was clearly skeptical upon returning for the 19th season, on which he was paired with Olympic ice dancer<strong> Meryl Davis.</strong></p> <p>"When I came back to the show, it was not the same,” he admitted. “I was different, probably… When I came back, I saw this amazing talent, <strong>Val</strong> [<strong>Chmerkovskiy</strong>, his brother] included…I looked at it and thought they can do much more and better, I was taking up a huge spot.”</p> <p>Chmerkovksiy couldn’t have had a better return season, as he ended up <a href="http://uinterview.com/news/dancing-with-the-stars-finale-recap-meryl-davis-and-maksim-chmerkovskiy-win-amy-purdy-and-derek-hough-runner-ups-11552" target="_blank">winning the coveted Mirror Ball trophy</a> with Davis after they dominated on the dance floor week after week.</p> <p>Though Chmerkovskiy has no plans on competing on <em>Dancing with the Stars </em>in the future, it is possible that he’ll return to the show in some capacity – at least according to DWTS executive producer <strong>Rob Wade.</strong></p> <p>"I've just come back to the show, but I was on the show in season one and Maks came on in season two, so I've known Maks for 10 years now and he's a very good friend," Wade said earlier this month. "I'm absolutely hoping Maks comes back to the show. I don't know whether it's going to be as a dancer. I think there's a number of different things we can talk to him about and the way he'd be involved in the show. Maks will always be part of <em>Dancing With the Stars</em> in some way.”</p>Tue, 29 Jul 2014 00:00:00 -0400http://uinterview.com/feed/hmnjrkxajxckw<![CDATA[Bradley Cooper And Sienna Miller Film 'Adam Jones']]>http://uinterview.com/news/bradley-cooper-and-sienna-miller-film-adam-jones-12282<div align='center'><a href='http://uinterview.com/news/bradley-cooper-and-sienna-miller-film-adam-jones-12282'><img src='http://uinterview.com/images/uinterview/news/6832b1c966380bda7724d7b0247859a6-150x150.jpeg' alt='' align='left' /></a></div><p><strong>Bradley Cooper</strong> and <strong>Sienna Miller </strong>were spotted on set of their new movie <em>Adam Jones</em> in London’s Leicester Square on Monday.</p> <h1> Bradley Cooper, Sienna Miller Film 'Adam Jones'</h1> <p>Filming scenes outside, Cooper looked well put together in blue jeans and a black leather jacket over a tight black t-shirt.

In the book, Kyle writes about a man he dubbed “Scruff Face,” who disparaged Navy Seals, and consequently received a punch to the face from Kyle that knocked the former wrestler to the ground.</p> <p>According to Ventura, he neither made any such remarks, nor did Kyle ever physically assault him. In the trial, the <a href="http://uinterview.com/news/jesse-ventura-presses-on-with-lawsuit-against-late-american-sniper-chris-kyle-12066" target="_blank">burden of proof was on Ventura</a>, who had to show that Kyle knew the story was false when he included it in his book and that he revealed “Scruff Face” to be Ventura with malicious intent.</p> <p>Ventura first filed his defamation suit in 2012.

Since Howard still plays for the EPL’s Everton, NBC Sports is committed to working around his playing schedule, as that will continue to take top priority.</p> <p>"I think I got the balance right [last season]," said Howard, who commentated six games for NBC Sports last year. "To be honest, my schedule is eat, train, sleep and try and recover. I spend a lot of time in my home in Manchester, feet up on the bed, just resting."</p> <p>Howard’s star power is undoubtedly on the rise following his heroic performance in the United States' quarterfinal match against Belgium at the 2014 World Cup. In the game, Howard made a record-breaking (for a World Cup game) <a href="http://uinterview.com/news/tim-howard-becomes-a-hero-after-performance-in-us-vs-belgium-world-cup-match-12004" target="_blank">16 saves,</a> holding the score at 0-0 throughout the 90 minutes of regulation.</p> <p>While Howard appears to be the epitome of composure on the soccer pitch, the athlete admits his nerves threaten to get the best of him behind the mic.</p> <p>"On the surface, it seems so easy, but then you get in the booth and <a href="http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/tim-howard-talks-broadcasting-future-721975" target="_blank">your knees start shaking</a>," Howard told reporters on Tuesday, according to <em>The Hollywood Reporters.</em> "It takes such skill. As a player you know the game, but being to apply that and do it in the right way is very, very hard."</p> <p>As he continues to grow more comfortable talking about the game live for fans, Howard has started to warm to the idea of parlaying his playing career into one as a full-time analyst when it’s time for him to retire from the pitch.</p> <p>"I didn't know if television commentary was something I wanted to do," Howard said. "Dabbling in it is the obvious thing to do right now, but I realize how difficult it was doing just 7 or 8 games last year... It's still in its infancy, where I am at the moment, but if I can do this after I'm done playing, that's something I would enjoy."</p> <p> </p>Tue, 29 Jul 2014 00:00:00 -0400http://uinterview.com/feed/7t6val3bugw<![CDATA[Halle Berry's 'Extant' Bumped To Later Timeslot After Modest Ratings]]>http://uinterview.com/news/halle-berrys-extant-bumped-to-later-timeslot-after-modest-ratings-12279<div align='center'><a href='http://uinterview.com/news/halle-berrys-extant-bumped-to-later-timeslot-after-modest-ratings-12279'><img src='http://uinterview.com/images/uinterview/news/b9d840af5f6f0ac5502ee425d57ed5ab-150x150.jpeg' alt='' align='left' /></a></div><p>CBS is moving <em>Extant, </em>which stars Oscar-winner <strong>Halle Berry<i>, </i></strong> from the 9 to 10 p.m. timeslot on Wednesday evenings.</p> <h1> Extant Gets New Timeslot</h1> <p>Just three weeks into its freshman season, <em>Extant’s</em> ratings are causing some concern for CBS.

With Patti, Nick expounds upon his love for Andi, gushing about his feelings until Patti starts to tear up. When he gets Hy’s ear, Nick asks for Andi’s hand in marriage, provided she gives him the final rose. After a prolonged silence, Hy gives Nick a reluctant endorsement. As for Andi’s sister <strong>Rachel</strong>, she’s not terribly interested in what Andi has to say about Nick.</p> <p>The family is reluctant to accept Andi’s choice of Josh, since he seems to be the type she typically brings home, who never ultimately make her happy. They do, however, appreciate Josh’s obvious nerves and Rachel thinks it’s possible he’s taking it seriously. When it comes time to face Hy, Josh maintains that he’s genuine in his feelings for Andy and manages to keep his composure when asking permission to propose to his daughter. Later on, Josh has to face another round of interrogations from Andi, who is still concerned about his commitment. Fortunately, he has “proof” in his back pocket and pulls out an “Andi Murray” baseball card, complete with cute stats.</p> <h1> Andi Sends Nick Home</h1> <p>On her Last Chance date with Nick, Andi gets some pressure from him to show him or tell him somehow that he’s the one she wants. Though Andi declines, Nick, after stumbling through an awkward toast, feels somewhat reassured. His anxiety, he explains, stems from the fact that the last woman he proposed to broke off their engagement. He gifts Andi with a necklace with a vial of sand from the date on which he told her he loved her and hopes his love doesn’t end up unrequited.</p> <p>After Josh picks out an oval-cut diamond ring from Neil Lane, it looks like it’s going to be Nick’s turn to pick out an engagement ring – but Andi pays him a visit before he gets the chance. She admits that things just aren’t right with him and that she doesn’t want to put him through the Rose Ceremony. "Honestly, the last date—I wanted to just have fun and wanted to relax, and as hard as I tried I couldn't do that with you,” she said. “I feel like a life with you would be me over-analyzing every single moment." Nick can’t believe how Andi strung him along and cries on his way to the airport.</p> <h1> Final Rose</h1> <p>With the suspense gone, Andi waits at the end of the brick road for Josh. Josh, who doesn’t know he already has the competition in the bag, professes his love for Andi. When it’s her turn to talk, she makes him wait over a minute to reveal that she loves him too. Josh then gets down on one knee and proposes and receives a “yes” from the Bachelorette.</p> <p>In the live <em>After the Final Rose</em> special, Andi had to come face-to-face with Nick. Still somewhat bruised from getting dumped, Nick admits that it’s hard for him to understand what went wrong. He’s also upset that she slept with him, knowing she didn’t love him. “If you weren't in love with me, I'm just not sure why you made love to me,” he tells Andi, who is irate he’d make something like that private. All the same, she maintains that what she felt for him at the time was real.</p> <p>As for Josh, when he makes his way out onto the stage, he can’t stop saying how in love he is with Andi. Also, making sure everyone knows about their sex life too, claims he’s trying to get her pregnant.</p> <p><em>Bachelor in Paradise </em>kicks off next Monday on ABC at 8/7c.</p> <p> </p>Tue, 29 Jul 2014 00:00:00 -0400http://uinterview.com/feed/1av9c0z0fm00ggk<![CDATA[James Shigeta, Groundbreaking Asian-American Actor, Dies At 81]]>http://uinterview.com/news/james-shigeta-groundbreaking-asian-american-actor-dies-at-81-12270<div align='center'><a href='http://uinterview.com/news/james-shigeta-groundbreaking-asian-american-actor-dies-at-81-12270'><img src='http://uinterview.com/images/uinterview/news/4527fee5e38e27198322aa37f7b36b94-150x150.jpg' alt='' align='left' /></a></div><p>Legendary Asian-American actor James Shigeta died at the age of 81 on Monday, July 28.</p> <h1> James Shigeta Died July 28</h1> <p>Shigeta’s agent announced the news on Monday with a statement:</p> <p>“It is with great sadness that I report the loss of my long time friend and client James Shigeta…James passed peacefully in his sleep, July 28, 2014, at 2 p.m. The world has lost a great actor.

The string dolls were found in random hotel bedroms and lobbies filled with Comic-Con attendees. They were also spotted near <em>The Walking Dead</em> booth on the convention floor and hanging from the popular pedestrian bridge, and sidewalks down Fifth Street, leading to Comic-Con.</p> <p><img alt="" src="http://server.uinterview.com/cms/uinterview/custom_series_news/2a2a2cff9350b158ebe5f0e5638665ed.JPG" style="width: 300px; height: 186px;" /></p> <h1> Mystery Voodoo Dolls Found At Comic-Con</h1> <p>The dolls came with a small thumb drive and had “Malum Est” written on their bodies. When connected, the drive directs the lucky recipient to a choppy video, where the same “Malum Est” phrase is clearly seen. It is unclear where, exactly, these dolls were found. Journalist <strong>Emma Loggins</strong> posted a photo of a voodoo doll she found at the convention, writing, “Found a creepy #voodoo doll today at #sdcc.”</p> <p><iframe allowtransparency="true" frameborder="0" height="348" scrolling="no" src="http://instagram.com/p/q5hU5UHyOA/embed/" width="300"></iframe></p> <p>The video does not, however, say what exactly it is promoting. Google voodoo dolls and Comic-Con, and the answer remains just as much of a mystery. However, a search on Twitter of ‘Malum Est’ revealed a photo of <em>American Horror Story: Coven</em> star <strong>Emma Roberts</strong> with one of the <a href="http://emmaroberts-.tumblr.com/post/93070101952" target="_blank">voodoo dolls in question</a>, and <em>American Horror Story: Coven</em> featured a prominent Voodoo Queen character, played by<strong> Angela Bassett</strong>.</p> <p>Another photo, this one shared by Fox Home Entertainment, shows <em>AHS: Coven</em> co-star <strong>Sarah Paulson</strong> signing an “exclusive #CovenSDCC voodoo [doll].” Unfortunately, the photo is taken from a distance, so it is unclear whether or not the voodoo doll in the photo also has “Malum Est” written on it.</p> <p> </p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"> <p>.<a href="https://twitter.com/MsSarahPaulson">@MsSarahPaulson</a> signing one of our exclusive <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/CovenSDCC?src=hash">#CovenSDCC</a> voodoo dolls at booth #4229.

I should have done a better job articulating my thoughts and I sincerely apologize.”</p> <p>ESPN has also released a statement, distancing the network from Smith’s comments on Friday and expressing confidence in the sincerity of its employee’s apology.</p> <p>“We will continue to have constructive dialogue on this important topic," the statement read. "Stephen’s comments last Friday do not reflect our company’s point of view. As his apology demonstrates, he recognizes his mistakes and has a deeper appreciation of our company values.”</p> <p> </p>Mon, 28 Jul 2014 00:00:00 -0400http://uinterview.com/feed/2athvgcrly3oo0<![CDATA['The Jungle Book' Movie: Christopher Walken, Giancarlo Esposito Join Cast]]>http://uinterview.com/news/the-jungle-book-movie-christopher-walken-giancarlo-esposito-join-cast-12266<div align='center'><a href='http://uinterview.com/news/the-jungle-book-movie-christopher-walken-giancarlo-esposito-join-cast-12266'><img src='http://uinterview.com/images/uinterview/news/f7c1a879972b0f307f25baf2b6f4ac36-150x150.jpg' alt='' align='left' /></a></div><p>Disney’s live action/animation <em>The Jungle Book</em> feature has added <strong>Christopher Walken</strong> and <strong>Giancarlo Esposito </strong>to the all-star cast.</p> <h1> Christopher Walken, Giancarlo Esposito Join 'Jungle Book'</h1> <p>Walken and Esposito – who is best known for playing Gus Fring on <em>Breaking Bad </em>– will both <a href="http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/christopher-walken-breaking-bad-alum-721622?utm_source=twitter" target="_blank">voice characters in <em>The Jungle Book</em></a>, according to <em>The Hollywood Reporter. </em>Walken will be the voice behind ape ruler King Louie, while Esposito will voice wolf pack leader Akela.</p> <p>Other actors lending their voices to the project are <strong>Ben Kingley </strong>(panther Bagheera),<strong> Idris Elba</strong> (tiger Shere Khan), <strong>Lupita Nyong’o</strong> (wolf Raksha) and <strong>Scarlett Johansson </strong>(python Kaa).</p> <p>The only actor whose likeness will appear on screen is <strong>Neel Sethi</strong>, 10, who has been <a href="http://uinterview.com/news/the-jungle-book-casts-neel-sethi-10-for-mowgli-role-12137" target="_blank">tapped to play Mowgli.</a></p> <p><strong>Jon Favreau </strong>(<em>Iron Man, Chef</em>) is directing Disney’s <em>The Jungle Book</em> from a script penned by <strong>Justin Marks</strong>.

Bilzerian bosted to Stern that he won $50 million playing poker once and has lost up to $3.6 million in a game.</p> <p>A gambler from an early age, Bilzerian was honorably discharged from the Navy before he graduated – he claims it was because of his attitude, not his performance. His exit from the military mirrors his earlier expulsion from high school, where he was asked to leave during his senior year after it was discovered that he had a machine gun in his car parked in the school parking lot. Not only did he get kicked out of school, the stunt also earned him 3 weeks in jail.</p> <p>According to Bilzerian, he received his first firearm at age 6, and he frequently posts photos of himself surrounded by nearly naked women and guns.</p> <p><iframe allowtransparency="true" frameborder="0" height="348" scrolling="no" src="http://instagram.com/p/nJ1GIgoDt1/embed/" width="300"></iframe></p> <p><iframe allowtransparency="true" frameborder="0" height="348" scrolling="no" src="http://instagram.com/p/qQTIFPIDsL/embed/" width="300"></iframe></p> <p>Bilzerian is not shy when it comes to his infamous playboy antics, telling Stern that he once slept with 4 women at once, but he also admitted that he wasn’t popular with the ladies until after his time in Navy SEAL training, when he enrolled in college.</p> <h1> Bilzerian Suffered Two Heart Attacks At 25</h1> <p>However, Bilzerian’s hard-partying life hasn’t always yielded enviable results.

He had another heart attack 12 hours later.</p> <p>During the chat, Bilzerian also admitted that he doesn’t play poker too frequently anymore because the highs and lows can get very extreme, and that he recently bought a slightly used private jet.</p> <p>“I’m pretty smart with my money,” Bilzerian said when asked if he is ever worried he’ll use up his entire fortune with his lavish lifestyle.</p> <p>Of course, Bilzerian and Stern spoke at length about Bilzerian’s string of women.

Jessica (<strong>Deborah Ann Woll</strong>), home from her tryst with Jason, overhears Bill’s phone call, and clearly hears him saying he has contracted Hep-V, but when he passes her on his way out, he plays it cool, so she lets him go.</p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="169" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/nlMyi2EMOUM" width="300"></iframe></p> <h1> Eric And Pam Work With The Yakonomo Corporation</h1> <p>In Texas, Eric (<strong>Alexander Skarsgard</strong>) and Pam (<strong>Kristin Bauer van Straten</strong>) are taken by the Yakuza to Yakonomo Corporation headquarters, where the president of American operations, Gus Jr. (<strong>Will Yun Lee</strong>), confronts the two about Sarah Newlin (<strong>Anna Camp</strong>). He wants to know everything they know about Sarah’s possible whereabouts. If they don’t talk, they will meet the sun. Pam, seeing the possibility of an alliance, gets Gus Jr. to give his word that he will not kill them and convinces Eric to divulge his information. Eric tells Gus Jr. that Sarah Newlin has a sister living in Dallas, and now that her parents are dead it’s the only place for her to go. The sun is coming up and Eric refuses to give up Amber’s address, telling Gus Jr. that, at sundown, they will go together. Eric and Gus agree that Eric will get to kill her, and Gus will get the body.</p> <h1> A Cure For Hep-V</h1> <p>Meanwhile, Sarah breaks into Amber’s home. Amber is ready to kill Sarah, but is too sick and ends up throwing up blood on Sarah’s back. Later, Sarah insists that she has changed – she’s Buddha now. Amber, however, is not buying it. She tells Sarah that just because she was in spiritual hiding for six months, it doesn’t erase all the bad things she has done. Sarah then reveals that maybe this was all fate’s design. Her old self created Hep-V so that her sister would then be infected and she, the new Sarah Newlin, could save her, thus reuniting the two sisters. When the vampires took control of Vamp Camp, Sarah downed the only vial of Hep-V cure. She is the cure, and she offers to heal Amber as penance.</p> <p>At night, Eric, Pam and Gus Jr. knock on Amber’s door and are shocked when they see Amber looking healthy.</p> <h1> Sookie Is Hep-V Positive</h1> <p>In Bon Temps, Jason (<strong>Ryan Kwanten</strong>) arrives home from the party to find Violet (<strong>Karolina Wydra</strong>) all dressed up, ready to show her appreciation for him with a little romance. Jason goes along with it, and later sneaks out of bed when Jessica calls him. She needs Jason to pick up Sookie (<strong>Anna Paquin</strong>) and come over to the Compton house, right away. Jason complies, leaving Violet angry, trashing her basement bedroom.</p> <p>Jason wakes up a hungover Sookie and gets her over to Jessica’s home, where Jess tells them what she overheard. Sookie immediately flashes back to the night Alcide died. She had cut her arm in an attempt to attract the Hep-V vamps, and blood from when they were killed must have entered her open wound, infecting her blood. Sookie turns to Jason and tells him to take her to the clinic – she needs to be tested now.</p> <p>Bill is waiting in a room packed of Hep-V vamps waiting to talk to lawyer Madeline Kapneck (<strong>Kathleen York</strong>), and his infection has spread through his chest over into his arms. Hep-V is killing him faster and more aggressively than normal, so Bill is not pleased when Kapneck tells him that he is not allowed to create a new will because he is technically already dead. The government does not recognize vampires’ rights to pass down property to their progeny, but, for a cool $10 million, Kapneck will help him get his affairs in order before he dies. Furious, Bill stabs her and leaves.</p> <h1> Violet Kidnaps Wade And Adilyn</h1> <p>While Sookie and Jason wait to hear her results from the clinic, the two have a heart-to-heart. Sookie admits that she always knows when Bill is near her; she can still feel him. It’s not that she didn’t love Alcide, it’s just that there’s always something about your first love. Jason agrees and reveals that the only time he has truly felt anything like love was with Jessica. He doesn’t feel anything with Violet.</p> <p>Jason drops Sookie off at the Compton’s and leaves to go break up with Violet, but Violet is already gone. She left a note for him, telling him that their relationship isn’t working out and it’s over.</p> <p>Now hell bend on revenge, Violet finds Adilyn (<strong>Bailey Noble</strong>) and Wade (<strong>Noah Matthews</strong>) at Fort Bellfleur. After being caught in bed by Andy (<strong>Chris Bauer</strong>) and Holly (<strong>Lauren Bowles</strong>), Adilyn and Wade ran off to have some time alone together while they still can. (Andy, of course, was infuriated by this new discovery and chased a naked Wade out of his house.) Violet tells them that she wants to help young love, and convinces them to go with her to a place where they can be alone and stay safe from any Hep-V vamps out there.</p> <h1> Lettie Mae And Lafayette Share Visions Of Tara</h1> <p>In other news, Lettie Mae (<strong>Adina Porter</strong>) and James (<strong>Nathan Parsons</strong>) convince Lafayette (<strong>Nelsan Ellis</strong>) to take V with her so she can prove that she really is having visions of Tara (<strong>Rutina Wesley</strong>). The two of them find Tara standing on a cross with a snake, speaking some kind of gibberish. They get her down and follow her to the house she and Lettie Mae used to live in when she was a baby. Tara begins digging furiously in the front yard, but before they can ask her what it is she is looking for, the Reverend (<strong>Gregg Daniel</strong>) comes and wakes them up.

John 5 served as Roth’s lead guitarist on<em> DLR Band</em> and again for a song on Roth’s <em>Diamond Dave</em> album.</p> <p>John 5 announced the most recent collaboration, claiming <a href="https://www.facebook.com/OneOnOneMitchLafon" target="_blank">the new album</a> has “11 of the greatest songs you’ll ever hear,” to rock music journalist <strong>Mitch Lafon.</strong></p> <p>“[Dave and I] just made another record, and it’s, like, the ‘California Sessions,’ [Dave] was calling it,” John 5 said. “And it’s 11 of the greatest songs you’ll ever hear, and it’s just me and Dave, and we had <strong>Gregg Bissonette</strong> play drums on it. And it’s unbelievable. There’s a song called "Somewhere Over The Rainbow Bar & Grill." And you know, just great, great songs. And hopefully sometime it’ll see the light of day. But he’s, of course, busy with Van Halen and all that stuff. But it’s an incredible record.”</p> <p>“They’re all original songs. I would just go over to his [David Lee Roth's] house during the day and write this music and then he would book the studio at night,” John 5 added. “So we would go into A&M Studios – Henson Studios, it’s called now – and we’d record. And it’s so great. I mean, it sounds like just Dave from that <em>Van Halen I </em>or <em>II</em> or <em>Women And Children First</em> era, [in terms of his] singing [style], and it’s incredible, man. It’s really incredible. He loves it too, so maybe it’ll see the light of day sometime.”</p> <p>The album, which is reportedly a year and a half in the making, has no scheduled release date as of yet. Roth is also supposedly working on a new Van Halen project.</p>Mon, 28 Jul 2014 00:00:00 -0400http://uinterview.com/feed/1xagyp1rhp5<![CDATA[Who Is Lauren Hashian, Dwayne Johnson's Girlfriend?]]>http://uinterview.com/news/who-is-lauren-hashian-dwayne-johnsons-girlfriend-12257<div align='center'><a href='http://uinterview.com/news/who-is-lauren-hashian-dwayne-johnsons-girlfriend-12257'><img src='http://uinterview.com/images/uinterview/news/5dcf80bc8785149ed3b31ca8579e35a4-150x150.jpeg' alt='' align='left' /></a></div><p><strong>Dwayne Johnson</strong> was accompanied at the <em>Hercules</em> premiere by his longtime girlfriend <strong>Lauren Hashian</strong>, who rarely makes public appearances with the action star.</p> <h1> Who Is Lauren Hashian?</h1> <p>Johnson, 42, and Hashian, 29,<a href="http://www.thehollywoodgossip.com/2014/07/lauren-hashian-poses-with-dwayne-johnson-at-hercules-premiere-se/" target="_blank"> hit the red carpet together</a> at the <em>Hercules</em> premiere last week at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. For the occasion, the WWE fighter-turned-actor wore a gray pattered suit with a white, blue and brown checkered shirt and navy blue tie. Hashian kept her look simpler in a white cut out dress.</p> <p>Johnson and Hashian have been dating for the last seven years after meeting on the set of <em>The Game Plan</em> (2007) in Boston. At the time they first met, Johnson <a href="http://www.eonline.com/news/1494/the-rock-s-divorce-solidifies" target="_blank">was married to <strong>Dany Garcia</strong></a>, whom he divorced a year later. It’s been rumored that Johnson’s relationship with Hashian led to the divorce, though he and Garcia still have an amicable relationship and share custody of their child.</p> <p>Following his split from Garcia, Johnson has said he was in a deep depression. Hashian, according to the <em>Fast & Furious</em> star, helped him recover and become a better person. She “embraced and <a href="http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/" target="_blank">loved me at my very worst</a> and lifted me up to be my very best,” Johnson told <em>The Hollywood Reporter.</em></p> <p>Hashian, a singer, was born and raised in Massachusetts.

The teen spent most of her time cheering her teammates on from the bench. Although she was largely away from the action, the cameras found her more often then some of the squad's better players, who are reportedly beginning to resent the attention paid to Altynbekova.</p> <p>Altynbekova initially welcomed the attention, but has grown tired of it. Afterall, she is first and foremost an athlete who’d like to be known for her prowess handling the volleyball more than her looks.</p> <p>"I was flattered at first but it's all getting a little bit much," she said.

However, she refused to elaborate on how, exactly, her scenes come to life.</p> <p>“It’s done in a way that’s never been done before in a sense that no person has played a person with two heads… people have done it with another actress [but] this is a new thing,” <a href="http://tvline.com/2014/07/26/american-horror-story-freak-show-characters-spoilers-jessica-lange" target="_blank">Paulson teased</a>.</p> <p>Paulson also revealed that there are 22 people working on every single shot of her characters, and admitted that it was “one of the hardest things I’ve ever done.”</p> <p> </p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"> <p>It begins... <a href="https://twitter.com/AHSFX">@AHSFX</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/CCSD?src=hash">#CCSD</a> <a href="http://t.co/CTODNIagAG">pic.twitter.com/CTODNIagAG</a></p> — Michael Chiklis (@MichaelChiklis) <a href="https://twitter.com/MichaelChiklis/statuses/493204993852186624">July 27, 2014</a></blockquote> <br /> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> <p> </p> <p>As for the season’s big bad, Minear revealed that <em>AHS: Freak Show</em> had tapped <strong>John Carroll Lynch</strong> (<em>Fargo</em>) to play one of the main villains and promised fans that his character would “<a href="http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/comic-con-american-horror-story-721457" target="_blank">scare the s—t out of you</a>.”</p> <p>Bates was a huge hit at the panel, revealing what it was like to work with creator and showrunner <strong>Ryan Murphy</strong>.</p> <p>“After my first scene last week, I got home and couldn’t go to sleep, and then I slept for 30 hours – and that was without drugs! I swear to God, I think he scares the s—t out of me,” <a href="http://tvline.com/2014/07/26/american-horror-story-freak-show-characters-spoilers-jessica-lange/" target="_blank">Bates told the crowd</a>, laughing.</p> <p>Bates also told the panel that she would not do terrifying scenes with children, saying, “I wouldn’t want to do any bad scene with children. If there was something abusive with children that was too horrific, that would be it for me.”</p> <p><em>American Horror Story: Freak Show</em> will premiere sometime in October on FX, and Minear promised, “It’s the <a href="http://tvline.com/2014/07/26/american-horror-story-freak-show-characters-spoilers-jessica-lange/" target="_blank">best season</a> so far.”</p> <p> </p> <p>– <em>Olivia Truffaut-Wong</em></p> <p> </p> <p><a href="https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/uinterview/id548529935?ls=1&mt=8"><strong>GET THE FREE uINTERVIEW iPHONE APP FOR LATEST NEWS UPDATES</strong></a></p> <p> </p> <p>More on <em>American Horror Story </em>and Comic-Con:</p> <h4 style="font-size: 1.2em; margin-bottom: 0.2em; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; line-height: 15px;"> <sub>> <a href="http://uinterview.com/news/sarah-paulson-gives-sneak-peek-of-her-american-horror-story-freak-show-role-11791" style="color: rgb(59, 199, 244); text-decoration: none; outline: 0px;">Sarah Paulson Gives Sneak Peek Of Her 'American Horror Story: Freak Show' Role</a></sub></h4> <h4 style="font-size: 1.2em; margin-bottom: 0.2em; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; line-height: 15px;"> </h4> <h4 style="font-size: 1.2em; margin-bottom: 0.2em; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; line-height: 15px;"> <sub>> <a href="http://uinterview.com/comic-con-2014/news/the-walking-dead-premieres-new-season-5-trailer-at-comic-con" style="color: rgb(59, 199, 244); text-decoration: none; outline: 0px;">'The Walking Dead' Premieres New Season 5 Trailer At Comic-Con</a></sub></h4> <h4 style="font-size: 1.2em; margin-bottom: 0.2em; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; line-height: 15px;"> </h4> <h4 style="font-size: 1.2em; margin-bottom: 0.2em; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; line-height: 15px;"> <sub>> <a href="http://uinterview.com/comic-con-2014/news/game-of-thrones-announces-nine-new-cast-members-premieres-season-4-blooper-reel" style="color: rgb(59, 199, 244); text-decoration: none; outline: 0px;">'Game Of Thrones' Announces Nine New Cast Members, Premieres Season 4 Blooper Reel</a></sub></h4> <h4 style="font-size: 1.2em; margin-bottom: 0.2em; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; line-height: 15px;"> </h4> <h4 style="font-size: 1.2em; margin-bottom: 0.2em; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; line-height: 15px;"> <sub>> <a href="http://uinterview.com/comic-con-2014/news/teen-wolf-panel-teases-malia-and-stiles-human-derek" style="color: rgb(59, 199, 244); text-decoration: none; outline: 0px;">'Teen Wolf' Panel Teases Malia And Stiles, Human Derek</a></sub></h4> <p> </p> <p> </p>Mon, 28 Jul 2014 00:00:00 -0400http://uinterview.com/feed/foift6jiie8kg
