>> i never played a character that can help so many people. >> a transgender story turns our "e.t." reporter into an emotional sitdown. >> you're making me tear up a little bit. >> now in our 35th season this is "entertainment tonight." >> thank you for joining us. at the end of another busy week for star news. >> and we have more big headlines for you. let's get started. tonight's top story. >> was jessica simpson drunk on live tv or ditzy the way we have come to know and love her. >> it's like 44. >> i am looking at myself on the monitor. >> i think ashley is the best at wearing gray. >> your sister? >> yes. >> it all unfolded on hsn. >> we glitz and glamoured it for our anniversary. >> while jessica and her mom pushed her fashion line, a lot of viewers were wondering about her behavior. so ten years ago there were no

since she was 12. >> you know, give her a break. this is a hard-working woman who has a very successful business. and i'm proud that she chose to come to hsn to celebrate. it was really fun night. >> let's keep moving. >> first up, nice quick hits. >> he is still trending. hot debate guy. we spoke to him two days after the debate. >> it's been a crazy couple days. it's been exciting and fun and just trying to take it for what it is and enjoy the ride. >> twitter still can't get enough of the filmmaker and billionaire son who went to school with patrick schwarzenegger and found out he was famous during a debate commercial break. >> a cnn photographer came up to me and basically said do you understand what is happening right now? i said, no. then i looked at my phone and noticed i had a lot of texts from friends and family. >> greg tells us celebrity crush is january jones. >> the funniest is the $10 one i saw on line.
the two definitely acted like lovebirds. >> you see tatum looking lovingly at rosie. eyewitnesses saw her put her arm around tatum. >> earlier this month, the daily mail was first to say they were a couple and tatum said she was with her wife. but when asked about the details, she said she was joking and deleted the whole thread. the couple said they are only friends. finally this, who got kim pregnancy news first? >> i haven't told anyone. >> what? >> i told north last night. >> kendall was told soon after. >> she face timed me. i was in a supermarket. i was like be quiet. there are people around. >> our carly steel got an exclusive sitdown and then the name is catchy, modern view. >> you smell divine. >> talk. of course i'm wearing it. >> it has rose and raspberry and vanilla which are all three of my favorite things.

>> i just don't think this movie could be the same without emily. i mean that poster wouldn't be as cool as it is without emily. >> now i know her. and i'm like oh, yeah, why you she's the one with the balls. >> and as for that oscar buzz, this cast is playing it cool. >> i take it with a pinch of salt.
the film. i find it hard to sort of go down that route. >> that would be major mistake. performance, emily's husband john kerzinski. >> was what was i had reaction? >> i don't know. i got a lot of leg hits like during it. you can see him shaking his head. i think that is good news. and a leg hit is like oh, my god. now just a heads up. there is a lot of violence in the film. keep that in mind. it is amazing. emily just landed another big role. she will star in "the girl on the train" which is based on the best-selling book that has been compared to gone girl. >> okay, that right there is some serious glamour. modern family star sophia vergara is a knockout. she made her debut there in 2010. so it's no wonder she made our best dressed list every year since. >> i remember when i was in colombia, i was part of a red carpet in hollywood.
