If you missed KELLY CLARKSON's Christmas special last night, then you missed her magical performance with 2 legendary ladies: TRISHA YEARWOOD & REBA--amazing!
Here's your first look/listen at Blake Shelton's new single, "Doin' What She Likes"!
-- With the holiday season in full gear, Blake Shelton is looking forward to an annual tradition that he has with wife Miranda Lambert. Blake told Extra's Terri Seymour that his favorite holiday tradition is the "actual wrapping of the presents. That's something that Miranda and I make a point that we do." He then confessed, "Actually she does it and I mix her drinks while she's doing it." So what does Blake want to see under the tree on Christmas morning? He said, "Alcohol is always in high demand around my house." His fellow coaches on NBC's The Voice also get in the gift giving mood this time of year, as Christina Aguilera once gave Blake two-headed duck that was stuffed and mounted. This year, Blake is the one in playing Santa and he plans on giving his buddy Adam Levine some Nair hair remover or "something for his manicures."
-- Ellen DeGeneres says she's a happily married woman, no matter what the haters say. She addressed rumors of trouble in paradise on her show Wednesday, joking that she saw a tabloid headline saying, "Ellen and Portia Are Splitting" and thought, "'Oh, what happened? They seemed so happy.' And then I was like, 'Wait, I'm Ellen." She then turned a little more serious, saying, "There's not one ounce of truth to any of it. I'm very happily married. In fact, the only thing we ever argue about is who loves who more."
-- Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel have announced they have separated and ask for privacy during this time as their main concern is their son. Tabloids had reported their 11-year marriage was in a tailspin about six months ago because he couldn’t remain faithful.

-- Even though The Sound of Music, featuring Carrie Underwood, was panned by a lot of critics, it did get 18 million viewers. So, no big surprise, NBC is thinking about doing another live musical broadcast!
What musical should NBC do next & who should star in it?
-- An album recorded by Johnny Cash in the 80s, but shelved because he lost his record deal, will be released early next year. It's called "Out Among the Stars".
-- If you're looking for a gift for that person that has everything... how about Willie Nelson's golf course? The Perendales Cut & Putt in Spicewood, Texas, could be yours for a mere $3 million! Some of the strange rules, according to the course website, asks players not to "talk, clink coins or pass gas while someone is puttting"... "No bikinis or skimpy attire, except on women"... and "Gambling is not allowed unless you're stuck or in need of a legal deduction for charitable expenses".
