Appearing alongside husband Mark Kelly, Gabrielle Giffords was a guest today on Good Morning America, touching on a subject she sadly knows all too well:
“After the shooting in Tucson, there was talk about addressing some of these issues, [and] again after Aurora,” Kelly said. “I’m hopeful that this time is different, and I think it is. Twenty first-graders’ beingMore >
Robin Roberts has once again updated fans on her physical condition.
The Good Morning America anchor – who has taken a leave of absence from that program following a bone marrow transplant on September 20 – just returned home against after a week in the hospital.
She was treated there for a virus that failed to respond to medication.
“Our immune systems usually take care of a virus like this … but mine is only 59 days old,” Roberts wrote in a post called “Home Sweet Home: Part II.”
Added Roberts of the latest visit:

Yup, she’s number-one again.
Just hours after her latest album debuted at the top of the iTunes chart, Taylor Swift sat down with George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America to talk all about “Red.”
Focusing on the process of actually collaborating with various songwriters for a change, Swift said the CD took her to the “edges of what I’m allowed to do” as an artist. Meaning what, exactly?

Robin Roberts has updated her Good Morning America blog to reflect the two major events taking place at the moment in her personal life.
The reporter tells fans she has delayed the start of her bone marrow transplant procedure because she is in Mississippi “standing proudly” with her family as loved ones say goodbye to Robin’s mother, Lucimarian Tolliver Roberts, who passed away on Thursday.
She was scheduled to be admitted to the hospital today, but Roberts writes:
“When I return to NYC and walk through those hospital doors next week momma will be right there with me. Light, love andMore >
Backstreet’s back, alright.
For the first time in six years, Nick Carter, Brian Littrell, Howie Dorough, A.J. McLean and Kevin Richardson reunited as the five Backstreet Boys performed live on Good Morning America’s Summer Concert series in New York’s Central Park.
The quintet sang “Incomplete,” “I Want It That Way” and “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back).” Check out their GMA reunion concert below and see what you think:

Robin Roberts announced today that she is leaving Good Morning America one day earlier than scheduled, not due to her impending bone marrow transplant, but as a result of Hurricane Isaac.
She is flying home to Mississippi to be with her ailing 88-year-old mother, Lucimarian, along with her family, which is in the eye of the storm.
“I know the journey ahead will not be easy,” said Roberts, who is dealing with a blood disorder known as Myelodysplastic Syndrome. “Just know that I’m going to come back here as soon as I can.”
In Roberts’ temporary absence, Good Morning America will welcome aMore >
Savannah Guthrie to the rescue? Not after one installment of The Today Show at least.
The new anchor’s debut episode was met with a resounding response by her program’s chief rival this week, as Good Morning America scored its first ratings win on a Monday since 2006.
Fast affiliate numbers show GMA garnering an advantage of 6,000 households over Today in the key demographic of 24-54-year olds (1.68 million over 1.674 million), along with a 356,000 lead in total viewers (4.425 million over 4.069 million).

Demi Lovato and her pink/blonde hair took to the Good Morning America stage today for a pair of performances.
First, the new X Factor judge rocked out a bit and received some help from an enthusiastic audience with “Give Your Heart a Break.” Watch her in action now:
Lovato was also asked about her schedule these days and replied:
“I’m doing really good. I’m actually not tired, I get so much energy doing this stuff! I’m straight from tour to X Factor, to you know, everything!”
Everything, indeed. Check out a video of herMore >
Duets debuted on ABC last night and one thing is for certain: Chris Brown fans will NOT be tuning in.
Not when the quartet of judges includes John Legend, whose girlfriend was recently the target of ridiculous death threats from Team Breezy members.
The panel also includes Robin Thicke, Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Nettles, all of whom won’t merely judge aspiring singers, but actually perform with them on stage as well.
First, however, this impressive foursome opened the premiere on its own, leading off last night’s episode with a rendition of “Let Me Entertain You.” Watch it here:More >
I’m back in the game with vengeance. I’m here. And I’m unbroken.
So said Demi Lovato to Robin Roberts today during an interview on Good Morning America, as the young singer stopped by to promote her new album, which comes out at midnight tomorrow and which features the R&B track “Up All Night.”
“I’m standing tall and confident and happy and healthy and proud,” Demi said of how she now feels and why she chose “Skyscraper” as her first release. Watch the interview below and then check out Lovato’s performance of this single:More >
Demi Lovato is leaving Sonny With a Chance, the show that’s made her a star on the Disney Channel. She’ll instead focus on her pop career – and recovery.
Given the actress sought treatment recently for “physical and emotional issues,” and confessed to cutting herself since age 11, a change might do her good.
“It made sense for me to go ahead and leave the show to focus on my music,” Lovato tells People. “It’s sad for me that a chapter of my life has ended.”
“However, there couldn’t be a better time for me to move on.”

Things got awfully heated on Good Morning America yesterday as Donald Trump discussed his potential presidential run with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos.
In short, George took him to task and the Donald didn’t appreciate it.
Stephanopoulos mentioned that some Republican heavyweights call him a “flawed messenger for the party” and “a joke candidate.” Why do they think this?
By continuing to question President Obama’s birth certificate and citizenship. Trump replied by … going off about Obama’s citizenship. You gotta see this:

Brett Favre should have called it a career in 2009.
His final season was marred by injuries, on-field mediocrity and Jenn Sterger, a former New York Jets employee who reportedly received suggestive voicemails, sexual texts and totally unsolicited pictures of Brett Favre naked.
Now Jenn Sterger is ready to tell her side of the story.
This week, Sterger is opening up publicly for the first time, six months after news of Favre’s alleged inappropriate behavior became an Internet scandal.

After extensive talks, Nicki Minaj has officially joined Britney Spears’ upcoming summer tour, replacing Enrique Iglesias as the star’s opening act.
A source close to the 26-year-old Minaj confirmed to E! that she’s aboard and tour organizers expect the tandem should be a big concert draw.
More so than the Spanish crooner who pulled out last month? Probably.
1-2 PUNCH: Two Femme Fatales. One horribly pricey ticket.
Indeed, the choice of the Trinidad and Tobago-born hip-hop diva is probably for the best, given how foolish Iglesias’ camp just made Ms. Spears look.

Chris Brown and Rihanna got into an infamous disagreement two years ago, but they can certainly agree on wanting to move past that argument now.
In the new issue of Rolling Stone, Rihanna opened up again about her famous ex and why she agreed to the lifting of a restraining order against him.
“You can never please people,” she said. “That’s my decision. It doesn’t mean we’re gonna be in a relationship, or make up, or even talk ever again.”
“It just means I didn’t want to object to the judge,” she stressed.
The modified order means that the former couple may attend industry events at theMore >
