WRITERS APOLOGIZE FOR NOT ADDRESSING BILL COSBY'S SEXUAL ASSAULT ALLEGATIONS
Several members of the media are issuing apologies to Bill Cosby's alleged victims for not addressing their accusations sooner. New York Times columnist David Carr has written a piece calling out writers including himself and Cosby's biographer, Mark Whitaker, who ignored the claims for years before Hannibal Buress brought them front and center in his comedy act.
Carr wrote, "We all have our excuses, but in ignoring these claims, we let down the women who were brave enough to speak out publicly against a powerful entertainer. Mr. Whitaker has said he didn't want to put anything in the book, which he wrote with Mr. Cosby's cooperation, that wasn't confirmed -- which of course raises the question of why he wouldn't have done the work to knock down the accusations or make them stand up."
MARIA SHRIVER HAS COME AROUND TO HER SON DATING MILEY CYRUS

Maria was terrified that it would be another nightmare like the Taylor situation. Taylor Swift was their biggest fear. They all thought it was going to turn out like that." The insider added, "Patrick is really trying to do give Miley positive PR with Kennedy-Shriver clan."

When asked how she came to be a girlfriend, Kendra said, "I just wanted to party, and I had a damn good time, it was so fun.

I was living in this small-a** apartment, I was praying for anything to get me out of there." She added, "I moved in and weeks went by and I didn't know that sex was involved. I knew nothing about Playboy, I'd just graduated high school. He was like, 'Do you want to come upstairs?' And I was 'Sure, let's have fun'."

She continued, "I wouldn't say I work out a lot, just consistently...People think for some reason you have to work out for two and a half hours...but, it can be little. It can be 20 minutes, it could be 40 minutes, but you have to get it in. You can't do like two weeks and go like do two days and then take a week off and then do three days and then go, 'Why aren't I seeing results? I don't get it.' You know, you just got to do it -- sad, like anything else in life!"
ANNA KENDRICK REVEALS HER SECRET TO AN ENTERTAINING TWITTER ACCOUNT
Anna Kendrick has certain rules for herself when it comes to her Twitter account. The 29-year-old chatted about how she keeps her nearly three million followers entertained to E! News while promoting her new film Into the Woods.
Anna explained, "I drunk draft and double check them in the morning. Although I have done a handful of drunk tweets and so far people have not been able to tell the difference although I'm not quite sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing that my sober tweets could be drunk tweets." She added, "It's funny because I feel like when I try to say something really innocuous, those are the ones where people are like, 'What do you mean by that?' Sometimes, I just say something kind of gross, kind of honest, maybe a little too brutal. Those are the ones people respond to more. It's when you try to say something that's a little too squeaky clean that people are like, 'What's that? What are you doing? What's going on?'"

JOHNNY DEPP DOESN'T CARE ABOUT HIS RECENT BOX OFFICE FLOPS: Johnny Depp appears in the new issue of Details where he reveals that he doesn't really care that his last few films haven't done so well with critics or at the box office. He tells the magazine, "What is really satisfying is, like Marlon Brando, getting to that place where he just didn't give a f***. First, I reached a point where I cared so much and was so diligent in terms of approaching the work. Then you get to where you care so fucking much that it gets goddamn beleaguering, you know? But then a great thing happens. Suddenly you care enough to not give a f***, because not giving a f***, that's the total liberation. Being game to try anything." He adds, "For everybody, the clock's ticking. The main thing is whether you sit there and stare at the clock in fear of your ultimate demise -- which is pointless -- or you just live." Johnny plays the Big Bad Wolf in the movie adaptation of the musical Into the Woods coming out in December.

She discusses their close relationship saying, "I guess the thing that surprised me is that I would never expect to ever have a man this good-looking ever be my best friend. I just would never assume those things could happen, but he is. He's the most wonderful, lovable, family-oriented, sweet, hilarious, amazing guy. He actually taught me how to be fair and to stand up for myself. It's my biggest weakness: negotiating. I'm a wimp about standing up for myself and Liam is always fair. He's always on time, he's always doing his job, and he's good about making sure that things stay fair. He's teaching me to toughen up a little bit. That was important, I need that." As previously reported, there are rumors circulating that Jennifer and Liam's friendship has become something more since they have both found themselves single at the same time.
