Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are determined to spend the holidays together for the sake of their two children as they work out their marriage troubles.
The Hero hitmaker separated from Cannon earlier this year (14) after six years of marriage, but the rapper, actor and TV presenter reveals the estranged couple still works closely together to make sure the happiness of three-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe remain the stars' top priority.
Speaking to U.S. talk show host Meredith Viera on Friday (24Oct14), he explains, "(I'm) just staying focused on family and what's right and getting through these times and just doing what's right for the kids... "They're just happy. They love mommy, they love daddy. We've always been people who are kind of on the go, coming and going, so their life hasn't changed one bit. We spend holidays together, we do everything that we're supposed to do together."
And he claims bizarre reports about Cannon and Carey fighting over custody of their pets are unfounded.
He adds, "You know what I heard the other day? I heard that there's a family dispute over our eight dogs. It's the Jack Russell puppy dispute!"
Shamed baseball star Barry Bonds is officially single again after finalising his divorce. The retired San Francisco Giants player initially split from Elizabeth Watson in June, 2009, when she first filed to end their 11-year union.
They reconciled weeks later and requested to have the court papers dismissed, only to split for good in 2010.
The former couple reached a private agreement, reportedly regarding assets and custody of its five-year-old daughter, and now a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge has signed off on the divorce, finally bringing the union to an end, according to TMZ.com.
Bonds has been in the headlines in recent years after being linked to baseball's steroids scandal.
In 2011, he was sentenced to serve 30 days of house arrest for lying to a grand jury about his alleged steroid use back in 2003.
Halloween is a week from today, and if you haven’t planned your costume yet you might be starting to panic. It’s hard to think of a costume that hasn’t been done hundreds of times before. You want something original, relevant and that people will get right away. So why not take some inspiration from recent pop culture? Here are some costume ideas from your favorite movies, TV shows, and apps.
Guardians of the Galaxy
Grab a few of your friends and go together as the rag-tag superhero team. Bonus points if someone has a kid to dress as dancing baby Groot.
The Winter Soldier
If villians are more your thing, you can dress as the Winter Soldier from the Captain America sequel.
The character of Maleficent has been around for a while, but now you can serve some Angelina Jolie realness.
Elsa from Frozen
If you don't mind having the same costume as a bunch of 8-year-old girls.
Rust Cohle from True Dectective
Just say philsophical nonsense all night.
American Horror Story
Whether you join the Coven or are part of the Freak Show, you have plenty of creepy characters to choose from.
The 12th Doctor
A new Doctor means a new costume! Keep it classy and take on Peter Capaldi's spiffy look.
Rock some braids and go as the Mother of Dragons for those Game of Thrones lovers.
The tongue is the most important part. Make sure no one sees you for more than ten seconds.

If you have ever read a single thing I've ever written, you might know, I love One Direction. A lot. So it might come as no surprise to you, but over here at Hollywood.com, we are FREAKING OUT about the "Steal My Girl" muisc video release on Vevo. We were ecstatic when the song first released. Now that the video is here, we can barely speak.
Before you even scroll a centimeter further, watch the video right this second:
Perfectly 1D, right? Gymnasts. Liam leading a band? Niall's entire outfit and dance. A chimp + Louis = the dream team. Harry's almost $4,000 jacket. Zayn and sumo wrestlers. And obviously, Danny DeVito (I love your work!).
Doesn't this just melt your heart?
There was the perfect amount of Harry:
And Niall's gorgeous face:
Hell, even whatever was going on here for Liam and Zayn was just perfect:
Before the video even released on Vevo, people were mentally preparing themselves (us too):

Kelly Osbourne has a new bumblebee tattoo in tribute to her comedian pal Joan Rivers.
Osbourne co-starred with Rivers on U.S. show Fashion Police and referred to her as her "second mum", and she was left devastated by Rivers' death last month (Sep14).
She posted a photo of the outline of her new inking on Instagram.com on Friday (24Oct14) and told fans the new body art is a tribute to the late funnywoman. In a caption alongside the image, Osbourne used her favourite Rivers' quote, writing, "In honor of you joanrivers... 'If you looked at aerodynamics, at science, the bumble bee should not be able to fly. Physically, it was just not anatomically equipped to soar. Yet it did, defying gravity, defying logic. The bee was a creature that defied and beat the odds, a miracle.' Thank you for being my Miracle @joanrivers."
Thieves stole jewellery, computers and clothes in a raid on U.S. singer Nell Bryden's hotel room while she was performing onstage. The pregnant star was singing for fans in Sheffield, England during her current U.K. tour when crooks struck at a hotel where she was staying in the city.
Two men ransacked her room and stole laptop computers, gems, and stage costumes in the raid earlier this month (Oct14).
Bryden, whose baby is due next month (Nov14), has now filed a compensation claim for $16,000 (£10,000), claiming security procedures at the hotel were inadequate.
Taylor Swift had to argue with the boss of her record label to ditch her country girl image and become a pop star.
The Shake It Off singer's new album 1989 contains not one country-style song, signalling that her move away from the genre that made her famous is complete. However, the transformation into sexy pop star was not easy for Swift - she ended up squabbling with the boss of Big Machine Records in Nashville, Tennessee because he wanted some country tracks on the record.
Swift tells British newspaper The Sun, "The decision came directly from me. I had to plead my case with everyone and certain people at the record label... I had to really campaign... I showed them that I was doing this for all the right reasons and that this was the creative decision and artistically there was no other option than to boldly hone this album for what it is. "I had to convince my Nashville record label president it was right for me. I presented the album to him and he said, 'It's great, it's the best thing you've ever done but can you put two country songs on it?' But I refused. I explained it would change the solid cohesiveness of the record, so he agreed. He's happy as a clown (sic) now as we got our first Hot 100 No.1 with Shake It Off."
1989 is scheduled for release on 27 October (14).
Sheryl Crow has finally sold her Hollywood Hills house, two years after it went on the market. She originally listed it in 2012 for $16 million (£10 million) but the 11-bedroom property sold for $11 million (£6.8 million). Crow bought the home in 1998 for $8.4 million (£5.2 million).
Actress Lindsay Lohan begged Britain's leading chat show host to back off when he started quizzing her about her time behind bars.
The Mean Girls star agreed to an interview with Jonathan Ross for his weekly show but she turned prickly when he began probing for details about her prison term. Lohan spent 14 days in a jail cell for drunk driving in 2010, but when asked how long it felt like, the actress tensed up and replied, "I have no idea. I've blocked that part out. That's in the past, okay? You are not putting this in the show."
Ross moved on but returned to the subject at the end of the interview, telling Lohan, "Well, it's been lovely, occasionally tense, having you here. But that's not necessarily a bad thing. I was just going on about the same subject, which is why you, understandably, got a little defensive."
Editors at Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper allege Lohan was upset with the tone of the interview and her aides have held talks with bosses at network ITV in a bid to edit out the prison references.
The interview is due to air in the U.K. on Saturday (25Oct14).
Joan Rivers' daughter Melissa has reportedly received more than $100 million (£62.5 million) from her late mum's estate.
The veteran comedienne passed away last month (Sep14) after suffering cardiac and respiratory arrest during a routine throat operation. Now her only child, Melissa, is set to inherit $75 million (£47 million) in cash as well as the $35 million (£22 million) condo in New York City's Upper East Side, according to Us Weekly. Melissa's son Cooper, 13, is expected to receive his own bequest. Last week (16Oct14), a New York medical examiner determined Rivers died of hypoxic arrest, when oxygen to her brain was cut off during the procedure.
