TYLER PERRY TO RECEIVE PEOPLE’S CHAMPION AWARD: Tyler Perry is set to be honored with the People’s Champion Award at the 2020 E! People’s Choice Awards, set for Sunday, November 15th. The director, entrepreneur and philanthropist’s work in entertainment, and in support of charitable organizations, earned him the honor. “In a year of unrest and uncertainty, Tyler Perry proved a natural leader,” Jen Neal, General Manager of E! News, Live Events & Lifestyle Digital, said Tuesday, Oct. 6. “From his pioneering efforts in successfully, and safely, restarting production and creating jobs at Tyler Perry Studios, to personally supporting charities and families in need, he continuously inspires hope in people. We are honored to present him with the People’s Champion of 2020 Award.”


A “furious” Anne Heche left the Dancing With the Stars set Monday after being eliminated following a mix-up, Page Six reports. Heche refused to do press and left the lot immediately.

Heche wasn’t theonly one who was confused after new host Tyra Banks announced that Cheer coach Monica Aldama and pro partner Val Chmerkovskiy were safe, when they were actually trailing the pack. Then, Banks said that Heche and pro Keo Motsepe, and Vernon Davis and Peta Murgatroyd were the bottom two, leaving Chrishell Stause and Gleb Savchenko onstage amid the confusion. 

Then, Banks called Aldama and Chmerkovskiy back to the stage to face elimination. “There has been an error in the control room. This is the craziness of live TV,” the supermodel said during the confusion. “I’m so sorry. This is live TV.”

But the pair were saved, and Heche was sent home. Banks tweeted: “Wowzers. Live TV. Wrong name on cards. So challenging to deal with moments like these. But we power through.”

Others weren’t as blithe. Chmerkovskiy compared Banks’ error to Steve Harvey’s infamous snafu at the 2015 Miss Universe pageant, when he announced the wrong winner.

“Just got Steve Harvey’d #dwts,” he tweeted.

Jason Priestley told The Roz & Mocha Show: “’Don’t look at the stars of the show’ was never an edict that came down on our show. I don’t know who told Jessica Alba not to look at us.” He did admit that someone likely told her that “because they thought that was a thing to do,” but he said that he always tried to make sure guests felt welcome.
