January Jones Doesn’t Deny Hooking Up With Liam Hemsworth

Sesame Street: Kevin Clash Leaves Big Shoes To Fill
Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash didn’t just voice the little red puppet: The multiple Emmy Award winner was the show’s “Muppet leader,” helped fix technical issues, traveled far and wide to train new puppeteers, gave life to other puppets, and worked as a director and co-executive producer, the New York Times reports.
Clash will still voice Elmo for the rest of this season and the majority of next since the show tapes way in advance; gaps in his work have been filled by temporary puppeteers who have stepped in during past Clash absences. But it’s unclear who will take over afterward.
The Elmo character will carry on, but “it’s a big transition moving on without him being part of the team,” says an insider.
Kevin Clash Resigns From Sesame Street
Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash has resigned from “Sesame Street” in the wake of an allegation that he had sex with an under-aged youth.
In its statement Tuesday, Sesame Workshop said “the controversy surrounding Kevin’s personal life has become a distraction that none of us want,” leading Clash to conclude “that he can no longer be effective in his job.”
“This is a sad day for Sesame Street,” the statement said.
As the announcement was made, a lawsuit was being filed in federal court in New York charging Clash with sexual abuse of a second youth. The lawsuit alleges that Cecil Singleton, then 15 and now an adult, was persuaded by Clash to meet for sexual encounters.
Clash, who had been on “Sesame Street” for 28 years, created the high-pitched voice and child-like persona for Elmo, a furry, red Muppet that became one of the most popular characters on the show and one of the company’s most lucrative properties.
Clash’s exit from Sesame Workshop followed a tumultuous week that began on Nov. 12 with a statement from the company that Clash had requested a leave of absence following the charge by a man in his early 20s that he had had a relationship with Clash when he was 16.
Clash denied the charge from that man, who has not been publicly identified, calling it “false and defamatory.” Days later the man recanted his charge.

Chris Brown Dresses As Arab Terrorist For Halloween
There’s something missing in Chris Brown’s brain: Basic good judgement
Brown is once again the center of controversy after attending a Halloween party thrown by Rihanna, but the meeting isn’t what has fans shocked—it’s his costume choice. E! reports that Brown and four friends went as a posse of Arab-style terrorists, complete with beards, turbans, and weapons, as evidenced by an Instagram shot and Brown’s accompanying tweet: “Ain’t nobody F–king wit my clique!!! #ohb.”
Sure, it’s just a costume, but “given his history, you wouldn’t think Chris Brown would want to associate himself with violence and destruction,” writes Rebecca Macatee.
