We have to first off say CONGRATS to: HALLE BERRY and OLIVIER MARTINEZ...Halle gave birth to a baby boy Saturday in Los Angeles. There's no word on the name yet. AND "Voice" host CARSON DALY. He's got engaged to his girlfriend of six years, Siri Pinter. The two of them were spotted in Los Angeles Saturday, and Siri was wearing what looked like an engagement ring. Carson and Siri already have two kids together . . . a 3-year-old son named Jack and a year-old daughter named Etta Jones.
And Now, Harry Connick Jr. Is Getting His Own Sitcom on Fox. Fox has announced that they're developing a new sitcom, which will star Harry as, quote, "a successful entertainer and single dad who takes time off to reconnect with his teenage daughter." There's no word on a title yet. It's pretty early in the process, so if this does come together, it wouldn't go into production until after the upcoming season of "Idol".
"Gravity" had a record-breaking weekend at the box office, pulling in $55.6 million in its first three days of release. That's the best October opening of all time, surpassing "Paranormal Activity 3", which opened to $52.6 million two years ago. The JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE-BEN AFFLECK movie "Runner Runner" claimed the #3 spot this week with $7.6 million.
