Dax Shepard is shutting down rumors that he was unfaithful to his wife, Kristen Bell.

The “Ranch” star took to Instagram on Thursday to address a report from DailyMailTV that claims he cheated on Bell years ago with Kayti Edwards, the step-granddaughter of Julie Andrews.

Edwards alleges in the article that, after meeting Shepard through mutual friends in 2005, the two developed a “brief,” casual relationship. She claims they rekindled their romance at a private party in Hollywood in late 2009, while Shepard was about two years into his relationship with Bell.

“I was house-sitting for a girlfriend of mine in Hollywood and there was this party … I saw him and we hadn’t seen each other in a few years. So it was like a very friendly, ‘Oh my gosh, I haven’t seen you in forever. Nice to see you,'” Edwards alleges, claiming Shepard “threw” her in the photo booth with him. “We went back and made love, we had sex twice and he stayed until the next morning. I didn’t know he had a girlfriend at the time, he didn’t seem to care.”

Photos embedded in the article show Shepard and Edwards passionately making out, but it’s unclear when they were taken. Daily Mail claims they are nine years old, but according to Shepard, the timing is inaccurate.

“Hey Daily Mail, that photo is 13 years old, not 9,” he wrote on Instagram. “Also, Kayti has sold stories to tabloids about Matthew Perry, Jack Osbourne, Kid Rock, and now me. I look forward to her next one. Fingers crossed it’s about my #1, Brad Pitt :)”

Meanwhile, Bell seemed unfazed by the rumors, taking to Instagram to share some exciting news of her own. “This is what your face looks like when you find out that @sarabareilles has written a song especially for u on a super secret project…,” she captioned a selfie.

Bell, 38, and Shepard, 43, started dating in 2007 and eventually tied the knot at the Beverly Hills County Clerk’s Office in October 2013. Ever since, the lovebirds haven’t been able to stop gushing over each other in interviews with ET.

“She’s a better person than me by a factor of at least six,” Shepard, who shares two children — son Lincoln, 5, and daughter Delta, 3 — with Bell, told us earlier this month. “But still, even if I do one-sixth of what she’s doing, that’s still a lot more than I ever thought I was going to do.”

Jerry Seinfeld weighs in on Kevin Hart Oscar controversy, says it won’t be ‘so easy’ to replace as host

For Jerry Seinfeld, the fallout between Kevin Hart and the Oscars is the award show’s problem, not Hart’s.

For Jerry Seinfeld, the fallout between Kevin Hart and the Oscars is the award show’s problem, not Hart’s.

“Kevin is in a position because he’s a brilliant comedian to kind of decide what he wants to do,” Seinfeld told Willie Geist in a preview clip of a “Sunday Today” interview. “He doesn’t have to step down, but he can.”

Seinfeld, 64, who has commented on comedians under fire throughout the year, thinks Hart will walk away unscathed from his drama of stepping down from hosting the award show after catching backlash from homophobic tweets that resurfaced from several years ago.

“Who got screwed in that deal?” he asked. “I think Kevin’s gonna be fine, but find another Kevin Hart, that’s not so easy, he’s a brilliant guy with a movie career.”

But Seinfeld thinks navigating the landscape of an evolving audience comes with being a comedian.

“Most of the time comedians are expected to be the most agile in terms of how we think and construct our thoughts and what comes out of our mouths,” he explained. “We have been navigating these slalom gates forever.”

“It’s like Lindsay Vonn,” he joked referring to the Olympic skier. “Wherever you put the gates, I’m gonna make them, that’s the gig.”

The full interview will air Sunday, December 16 on NBC.

‘The View’ host Joy Behar suggests Orrin Hatch should ‘go to jail’ for not speaking out against Trump

ABC News’ “The View” co-host Joy Behar declared on Thursday that retiring Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) “maybe” should be sent to prison for not speaking out against President Trump.

ABC News’ “The View” co-host Joy Behar declared on Thursday that retiring Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) “maybe” should be sent to prison for not speaking out against President Trump.

“I don’t know if you saw this clip of Orrin Hatch, the esteemed, so-called senator from Utah,” Behar said. “I used to like him because he was very friendly with Teddy Kennedy,” the late Massachusetts senator.

Behar then described a clip – that ABC News did not air during the segment – in which she claimed Hatch said he didn’t care if President Trump and his former attorney Michael Cohen committed crimes together.

“’I don’t care,’ he said, ‘the president’s doing a good job,” Behar said. “Where have we come when a senator from Utah is saying, ‘I don’t care if he committed a crime?’”

Behar apparently was referencing a CNN interview with Hatch in which the senator was asked about Trump’s links to Cohen. Hatch said, “All I can say is this: President Trump, before he became president, that’s another world. Since he’s become president, this economy has charged ahead. We’re all better off, the country is better off.”

When the reporter mentioned that the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York is a Trump appointee, Hatch said: “I don’t care. All I can say is, he’s doing a good job as president.”

“View” co-host Meghan McCain reminded Behar that Hatch is “almost gone” when Behar fired back, “Don’t they care about democracy anymore?”

TRUMP: MIKA BRZEZINSKI WOULD BE ‘BANNED’ FROM TV OVER HOMOPHOBIC SLUR IF SHE WERE CONSERVATIVE

McCain complimented Hatch’s “hilarious” Twitter account before the show went to a commercial break. Behar was still fired up and continued the conversation when it returned from the break.

“The View” co-host Joy Behar suggested that outgoing Sen. Orrin Hatch should be locked up.

“The View” co-host Joy Behar suggested that outgoing Sen. Orrin Hatch should be locked up.

“He is going out of office. He has nothing to lose by speaking, against, truth to power about Trump,” Behar said. “Why does he say, ‘Even if he commits a crime, it’s OK?’ Maybe he needs to go to jail, too.”

Nobody on the panel immediately checked Behar for her comment and the discussion quickly pivoted to the pros and cons of being angry. Behar appeared to make the comment in jest, and it drew laughter from the audience. However, Behar has found herself in hot water with political rhetoric in the past.

VOX MOCKED FOR SEEKING CONSTITUTIONAL OVERHAUL SO OCASIO-CORTEZ CAN RUN FOR PRESIDENT

Behar recently apologized after saying “God forbid” Trump lives another 20 years and has come under fire for mocking Vice President Pence’s Christian faith. She essentially has rejuvenated her career with over-the-top anti-Trump rhetoric and last month declared that it would be “a good day for Donald Trump to resign.”

Meanwhile, former Massachusetts governor and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney won the race to succeed Hatch.

Amanda Stanton‘s domestic violence case has been dismissed, the Las Vegas District Attorney’s office tells ET.

The case stems from the “Bachelor” alum’s September arrest, following an alleged altercation with her boyfriend, Bobby Jacobs, in a Las Vegas hotel room. She was arrested on a misdemeanor battery domestic violence charge and pleaded not guilty.

In a statement to ET after Stanton’s arrest, her rep said the mother of two was “embarrassed and ashamed this happened and sincerely apologizes to hotel security and the Las Vegas Police Department.”

“Amanda is a gentle, respectful person who has never gotten physical with anyone under any circumstance,” the statement continued, claiming that Stanton simply got “a bit rambunctious,” but understood that police “still had to do their job.”

Stanton was spotted outside the Las Vegas courthouse on Wednesday with her father, and while Jacobs wasn’t photographed with the pair, he did accompany Stanton on her Vegas trip. The couple, who started dating earlier this year, posted several pics and videos together on social media.

Jenny McCarthy is speaking out about her time on “The View.”

During an appearance on “Watch What Happens Live” on Tuesday, the “Masked Singer” star, 46, revealed that creator Barbara Walters once asked her to “act Republican.”

“… When I was on there, it was really hilarious, because they initially had me come on to be the pop culture girl because they wanted to change it,” McCarthy explained to host Andy Cohen.

“And then Barbara didn’t know who anybody was pop culture-wise,” she continued. “And then they came in my dressing room and said, ‘Can you just act Republican so we have another point of view?’ And I said, ‘How do I act Republican?’

“Then they figured out how to get a Republican.”

McCarthy — a co-host on the ABC daytime talk show from 2013 to 2014 — complimented Meghan McCain, who offers a conservative voice to “The View.”

“I love her on ‘The View,'” she gushed. “They needed an opposite point of view, in order to be ‘The View’ you need different sides.”

Josh Henderson, star of E!’s “The Arrangement,” was arrested on Tuesday in Los Angeles, ET can confirm.

The arrest came after the 37-year-old actor allegedly burglarized his neighbor’s home. Law enforcement is currently reviewing any and all surveillance video available to substantiate the case.

As of now, LAPD cannot share what was allegedly stolen and don’t know if any other individuals had a role in the robbery.

However, according to TMZ, the actor’s neighbors arrived home over the weekend to discover that roughly $7,000 in jewelry was missing. They called the police and provided surveillance that allegedly shows Henderson and two others allegedly committing the robbery.

A source told the outlet that Henderson “was initially mistakenly identified with a grainy security camera, but he is fully cooperating and evidence is now being presented to the authorities showing he had nothing to do with any of this. Josh is innocent and we are confident he will be cleared very quickly.”

Soon after he was arrested and processed, Henderson was released on $50,000 bail. 

Besides “The Arrangement,” Henderson also appeared on “Desperate Housewives,” the “Dallas” reboot and most recently in the Hallmark film “Time for Me to Come Home for Christmas.”

Miley Cyrus reveals she calls Liam Hemsworth her ‘survival partner’ instead of fiancé

Miley Cyrus has a special title for Liam Hemsworth!

The 26-year-old singer stopped by SiriusXM’s Howard Stern Show on Wednesday and revealed what term — not boyfriend or fiancé — she uses for her longtime on-and-off beau.

“So actually, Liam, I’ve never loved him more for this,” she started, before Stern cut in to ask, “This is your boyfriend? Fiancé?”

“Yeah, kind of-ish,” Cyrus answered. “My partner, I call him my survival partner now.”

Though Cyrus revealed that Hemsworth thinks the term is “not romantic,” she has “learned that it is.” This was especially true during the Malibu Fires — in which the couple lost their home — where Hemsworth, 28, did everything he could to rescue animals.

“That is why you pair up with someone, for survival, and he was so incredible,” she gushed. “He got all the animals out in his truck. He put two pigs in crates, which, I can tell you, is so hard.”

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth ‘Talk About a Wedding and Kids All the Time,’ Source Says

“He got a lot of action for saving the animals,” Cyrus quipped. “Yeah, he got a lot of action. We had to make sure he knew I was very, very grateful.”

Currently, the couple is settled in Nashville, Tennessee. When they’re not home, they “travel around together” and have a “really regular life,” where Hemsworth is “a really amazing cook” (via Elle).

“You know, usually we live in Malibu, but right now we live in Nashville and [are] adjusting,” she said.

“I think the hardest thing for both of us right now is to go back [to Malibu]. A lot of people are starting to get back to their homes, people that didn’t lose their homes, but Malibu isn’t the same for right now. The air quality, the water, [Liam] surfs every day.”

Last month, a source told ET that Cyrus and Hemsworth “talk about a wedding and kids all the time, but they are in no rush.”

“Miley and Liam are totally in love, and are so happy living together,” the source said. “They are not married but often laugh at the idea that people believe they are secretly wed. They refer to each other as husband and wife all the time and their friends laugh.”

In addition to her relationship with Hemsworth, Cyrus also sort-of-confirmed her rumored appearance on “Black Mirror.”

“If you guess it, then I will shake my head ‘yes,'” she told Stern, who went on to reveal that Cyrus had nodded when asked about the Netflix series (via Billboard).

“I’m really actually excited for everyone to watch the ‘headshaking project’ we said yes to [before],” she said. “The minute I say I never want to do something again, all of a sudden, there I am. I hate everything, but it was the first time I’ve left somewhere feeling really proud of my work… but, you know, if I like it, that might mean it’s horrible.”

Cyrus went on to hint that she got to play a “lot of different sides” in the role.

“There’s a lot of dimension to it, and actually it was while the devastation of Malibu was happening, and it was a really weird learning experience for me, because I was so far from home and the show is already really dark, and it’s already kind of eerie when you’re there the whole time,” she said. “But I learned a lot about myself and I think I was able to kind of use that and put that into it.”

With her relationship and career discussed, Stern turned the conversation to Ariana Grande, Cyrus’ friend, who recently ended her engagement to Pete Davidson. Following Grande’s breakup, Cyrus sent her a cat with heart eyes emoji.

“I thought it was slightly even making her feel good, like maybe I was hitting on her a little bit,” Miley explained, saying Grande responded with a cloud emoji. “I have no idea…I think she was saying like, ‘I’m OK and I’m here…thank you for thinking of me.'”

“[Grande’s] one of my favorite artists right now because the thing I really like about her…anything I’ve ever asked her to be involved in, whether it’s Happy Hippie, or working with young homeless kids, she’s always there,” she added. “So I can never say a bad thing about her because she’s always great.”

Sorry, “Dancing With the Stars” fans — the show is taking an extended break.

ET can confirm that “DWTS” is not on ABC’s schedule for spring 2019. However, a source close to production anticipates the show will return for the fall season. The news was first reported by TV Line.

Host Tom Bergeron reacted to the news on Wednesday.

“As predicted, we’ll see you in September, and we’ll make sure it’s worth the wait! 😉 ⁦@DancingABC⁩ #DWTS,” he tweeted.

‘Dancing With the Stars’ Couple Alan Bersten and Alexis Ren Are on a Break

Country radio host DJ Bobby Bones took home the mirrorball trophy last month for the show’s 27th season in a major upset. Some fans weren’t happy with the results — including, apparently, Neil Patrick Harris, who threw shade after the finale aired — and called for a change in how voting is done on the show.

Meanwhile, on Sunday, “Dancing With the Stars: Juniors” crowned its first champion ever — 10-year-old pro skateboarder and surfer Sky Brown, her pro partner, JT Church, and mentor Alan Bersten.

In November, ET spoke to Bones and his pro partner, Sharna Burgess, after their victory, when even they admitted they were shocked by their big win.

Bobby Bones Responds to Neil Patrick Harris’ ‘Dancing With the Stars’ Shade

“You have to think about it, [when] we started the show, I had never danced before!” Bones said. “She [Burgess] got stuck with someone — she’s done [the show with] athletes and people that are, like, super, she got Nick Carter and Antonio Brown — and then all of a sudden she gets Gumby. I cannot believe we won.”

The season marked Burgess’ first win after 12 seasons competing on the show.

“This is probably the sweetest win that I could have had over seven [years],” Burgess told ET. “The journey that we had together, what we represented, and to hold a mirrorball trophy at the end of that, it’s beautiful.”

Fox Business Network posts back-to-back yearly wins over CNBC in Business Day viewers

Fox Business Network finished 2018 with its second straight yearly win over CNBC in Business Day viewers, landing its highest rated year ever across Business Day and Total Day viewers in the process.
“Lou Dobbs Tonight” was the year’s top rated program in business television among total viewers.

“Lou Dobbs Tonight” was the year’s top rated program in business television among total viewers.

Fox Business Network finished 2018 with its second straight yearly win over CNBC in Business Day viewers, landing its highest rated year ever across Business Day and Total Day viewers in the process.

FBN averaged 214,000 viewers during Business Day hours of 9:30 a.m. ET through 5 p.m. ET, while CNBC averaged 175,000. The revamped FBN delivered five of the six top rated programs of the year in all of business television, including “Lou Dobbs Tonight,” which was the year’s top rated program in business television among total viewers.

“Throughout this past year, Fox Business has once again provided viewers exceptional analysis and insight on how tax, trade, and economic policy impact their families and wallets. With headline-making journalists covering the longest bull market in history, ongoing international trade discussions, and breaking financial news, the experienced anchors, reporters and producers at FBN continued to prove their dominance in the business television landscape,” Fox Business Network president Brian Jones said in a statement.

“Varney & Co,” “Countdown to the Closing Bell with Liz Claman,” “After the Bell” and “CAVUTO Coast to Coast” joined Dobbs among the most-watched programs in the genre.

FBN’s pre-market and market close coverage all saw program highs for their timeslots, with “Mornings with Maria” picking up its first yearly win over CNBC’s “Squawk Box.”

As FBN thrived, CNBC recorded its second lowest rated year in the past 25 years with the key demo of adults age 25-54. FBN launched an expanded lineup on Oct. 15, including “Trish Regan Primetime,” and the result has been overwhelming.

Regan’s show is up 56 percent compared to the previous 8 p.m. hour of FBN, while “Kennedy’s” move to 9 p.m. ET has also brought double-digit gains.

Fox Business’ sister, Fox News, also had a strong 2018. FNC finished 2018 as the most-watched basic cable network for the third consecutive year among both primetime and total day viewers.

“Hannity” finished 2018 as the most-watched cable news program, averaging 3.3 million viewers. MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” averaged 2.9 million to finish second, while Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” “The Ingraham Angle,” “The Five” and “Special Report with Bret Baier” made up the six most-watched news programs.
