U.S. TV presenter Elisabeth Hasselbeck is taking a hiatus from morning news programme Fox & Friends to recover from surgery. The former The View co-host was missing from the panel of the daily morning show on Wednesday (15Oct14) and her fellow presenters told viewers Hasselbeck is recovering from an undisclosed operation.
Presenter Steve Doocy said, "In case you were wondering where Elisabeth is today and this week, well, she had some surgery yesterday and she's going to be out for a couple of weeks... But she's doing just fine, she's on the mend."
Co-host Brian Kilmeade added, "But as you know if you watch the show, she is strong, she is tough and a better athlete than me. We heard from her last night and she said she is feeling good. So, in a short time, she'll be back on the set."
A representative for Fox News tells TheWrap.com, "Elisabeth has asked for all to respect her wishes for privacy in regards to further details at this time."
The producers of Glee have been sued by a shopper who allegedly tripped over cables while the TV series was filming in a California mall.
In the lawsuit, Yolando Rosario claims she was shopping at Burbank Town Center in November (13) when she fell over wiring which had been set up by the 20th Century Fox crew in a walkway open to regular shoppers. In the paperwork, obtained by TMZ.com, Rosario states that she broke her arm and a rib in the fall and is suing bosses at the Fox network and the owners of the mall for unspecified damages and coverage of medical bills.
The scene set in the mall features characters Kurt, Santana and Rachel, played by Lea Michele, working as elves for Santa Claus. It aired in the U.S. in December (13).
Actress Megan Fox is letting destiny decide whether or not she should have more kids after giving birth to her second son earlier this year (14). The sexy Transformers star admits she's not opposed to having a large family, and she isn't taking extra precautions to make sure she doesn't fall pregnant again.
She says, "There's not a plan, but I'm gonna be, like, one of those weird people that doesn't not try, but isn't trying - and just leaves it up to the universe."
But she's not ready to have baby number three just yet - she recently timed a romantic weekend away with husband Brian Austin Green to make sure they didn't conceive.
She tells chat show host Chelsea Handler, "I made sure I wasn't ovulating because I didn't want to get pregnant again."
Lest you think Megan Fox has it easier than non-celebrity moms, here are a few awesome quotes from her recent interview with Chelsea Handler:
"You don't really have a life. You're home a lot. You don't sleep..."
"You don't even get to poop alone—you have to take the babies with you."
And as far as her date nights with hubby Brian Austin Green? They spent the night in a hotel once, and it was very carefully calculated:
"We did that one time and we made sure I wasn't ovulating because I didn't want to get pregnant again. Sorry! Too much information."
No life, no sleep, no pooping in private? And date nights planned around your ovulation? Megan Fox has officially proven that she's just like the rest of us moms.

Megan Fox was stunned to learn the middle name she had picked for her baby son, who was born earlier this year (14), was also her great-grandfather's. The Transformers star and her husband Brian Austin Green had already selected Bodhi as the first name for their second child - after Patrick Swayze's character in one of the new mum's favourite films, Point Break - but they were still deliberating on a middle moniker when Fox received a strange call from her mum.
She explains, "His middle name is sort of spiritual and religious for me, in that Ransom can also mean being saved. I pitched it to Brian and he was like, 'You know, I feel like that's such a typical, like, actor-y thing to do to name your kid something so weird and I don't know if we can make it work'.
"Two days later my mum texted me and was like, 'You know, if you haven't chosen a middle name, your great-grandfather's middle name was Ransom, and maybe that'll work'. I didn't know because... he died before I was born... We figured it was meant to be."
"Brian doesn't get any intimacy whatsoever." Actress Megan Fox admits her sex life with husband Brian Austin Green is non-existent now they are parents to two young kids. She gave birth to son Bodhi in February (14) and is also mum to 22-month-old boy Noah.
"I've walked the floor. I came once when my husband (Brian Austin Green) was here for (TV drama) Sarah Connor. I wasn't promoting anything. I came in a Star Wars T‑shirt, and I walked around and nobody bothered me one time." Megan Fox feels at home at the Comic-Con convention in San Diego, California. The actress will be there this weekend (25-27Jul14) to promote Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

A stage adaptation of Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner's black comedy The War Of The Roses is heading to Broadway.
All The Way producers Jay and Cindy Gutterman are developing a theatre version of author Warren Adler's bestselling divorce novel, which the 1989 film was based on, and they are planning to debut the new production during the 2015-2016 season. Casting details have yet to be announced.
The War of the Roses is not the only book-to-movie project to get a Broadway makeover - a musical based on Olivia Goldsmith's The First Wives Club is also heading to the stage with a soundtrack penned by Motown legends Brian and Eddie Holland and Lamont Dozier.
The new production, a heavily revised version of The First Wives Club play which debuted in San Diego, California in 2009, will launch in Chicago, Illinois next spring (15) before transferring to Broadway.

The stars of Mel Gibson's historical epic Braveheart reunited in Edinburgh, Scotland on Tuesday (24Jun14) to mark 20 years since filming began on the movie.
Actors Brian Cox, David O'Hara, Angus Macfadyen and Peter Mullan reunited on the tartan red carpet to mark the 20th anniversary of filming and to commemorate 700 years since the Battle of Bannockburn, which is portrayed in the final scenes of the Oscar-winning movie.
The actors took part in a question-and-answer session after a special screening of the film, and Gibson, who was unable to attend the event in person, sent in a pre-recorded video message to mark the moment.
In the clip, the film's lead actor and director, said, "It is hard to believe that 20 years ago this month our production got underway in Scotland. And what a production it was. I was fortunate to be able to bring together so many talented people for this project. Together we went into battle with a goal of telling a good story while being cinematically compelling. This evening's event honouring Braveheart two decades later acknowledges that we accomplished what we set out to do... it is very gratifying indeed."
The 1995 film won five Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Director for Gibson.
