Ellen's Selfie at the Oscars Breaks Twitter Record
It took the star power of Ellen DeGeneres, Meryl Streep, Jennifer Lawrence, Brangelina, and Kevin Spacey to finally do it.

Teresa Giudice and her husband, Joe, stars of the "Real Housewives of New Jersey," are expected to plead guilty this week to federal charges of fraud, sources told ABC News this weekend.
Giudice is facing two years in prison and her husband could face deportation to Italy.

Golfer Paula Creamer sank a 75-foot putt to win the HSBC Women's Championship and an LPGA title on Sunday. The putt was one thing, but Creamer's reaction was the real show: she ran across the green, fell to her knees, and began pounding on the grass, laughing and cheering.
