Report: “Scandal” Star’s Wife Files for Divorce

ABC/Craig Sjodin(LOS ANGELES) — Scandal actor Columbus Short is facing more personal problems. His wife has reportedly obtained a restraining order and filed for divorce after he allegedly threatened to kill the both of them.

According to TMZ, Short’s wife, Tuere Short, claims he confronted her at their Los Angeles home on April 7 while intoxicated, grabbing a knife and choking her. She says he then accused her of cheating on him, and allegedly put a knife to her throat and threatened to kill her as part of a murder-suicide.

Tuere Short says the actor slashed her tire as she tried to escape the house.

Columbus Short has since moved out of the house as part of the restraining order.

Tuere Short filed for divorce on Tuesday and is seeking sole custody of the couple’s 2-year-old daughter.

Last month, Columbus Short pleaded not guilty in a separate incident to spousal battery, after he allegedly attacked his wife in front of his daughter and his son. Around the same time he entered that plea, he was arrested for allegedly punching another man at a West Los Angeles restaurant.

Short plays Harrison Wright on ABC’s Scandal.

Miley Cyrus’ Allergic Reaction Explained

Sara De Boer/STARTRAKS PHOTO via ABC(NEW YORK) — Miley Cyrus was forced to cancel a couple of concert dates in Missouri this week due to a severe allergic reaction to antibiotics. Her camp has since shed more light on what exactly is bothering her.

A rep for Cyrus says in a statement that the singer obtained a prescription for an antibiotic known as cephalexin to treat a sinus infection that was diagnosed last week. She subsequently suffered an allergic reaction to the drug.

The rep says such a reaction can last from five to 27 days. The statement adds, “She will remain hospitalized and is under a doctor’s care until we see some improvement in her condition and is asking for your compassion and privacy at this time.”

Cyrus was hospitalized in Kansas City on Tuesday. So far, she’s cancelled dates in Kansas City and in St. Louis.

The allergic reaction occurred one week after she cancelled a concert in Charlotte, N.C., due to a bout with the flu.

Season Finale of “Scandal” Will Have ‘Cataclysmic’ Twists

ABC/Ron Tom(NEW YORK) — The season finale of ABC’s Scandal airs Thursday night, and one of its stars says it will be “cataclysmic.”

ABC hasn’t revealed much about the episode: we do know it’s set during Election Day, with President Fitzgerald Grant facing off against his vice president, who murdered her husband.

Jeff Perry, who plays the president’s chief of staff, Cyrus Beene, offers this hint to ABC News Radio: “We’re going to be tremendously surprised as to how the re-election effort turns. I can’t say who’s going to win, but the final twists and turns are cataclysmic.”

Perry admits there is always a possibility that series creator Shonda Rhimes could kill off his character at some point during the show’s run.

He says, “I keep some little tiny part of my heart ready for, ‘Oh wow, I never thought that bullet was for me. OK. This has been amazing.’ And then on another level, you know, 99 percent of me goes, ‘No, Shonda loves Cyrus. I think she just really loves him. I think I’m safe. No, it’s going to be OK.’”

The season finale of Scandal airs on ABC at 10 p.m. Eastern time. Later Thursday night, Jimmy Kimmel Live will feature an on-set interview with Rhimes, as well as appearances from cast members.

“The View’s” Jenny McCarthy Engaged to Donnie Wahlberg

ABC/ Ida Mae Astute(NEW YORK) — The View co-host Jenny McCarthy is engaged to her boyfriend Donnie Wahlberg. McCarthy announced the news on the ABC daytime program Wednesday morning.

McCarthy recounted how the New Kids on the Block member involved her 11-year-old son Evan in the proposal.

“He went into the other room and out came Evan with a card that said ‘Will’ and he handed it to me…and then Evan ran away and Evan came in with a card that said ‘You,’ and then he ran away,” she described.

McCarthy quickly figured out what was going on.

“And then Evan came back with a card that said “Marry” — but spelled wrong. It said M-A-R-Y,” she continued, laughing. “And then the last time, Donnie came out with Evan and Donnie’s shirt said ‘Me’ with a question mark.”

She added, “Of course, I said ‘Yes.’ In that moment Evan yelled, ‘I have another dad!’ and it made all of us cry and I feel like the luckiest girl in the world and he’s so wonderful.”

The two have been dating since last summer; the group’re thinking of either getting married in August, or stretching the engagement out until next year, McCarthy said.

View creator Barbara Walters then offered to host the nuptials in her New York City apartment, but quipped that the group’d have to find another location for the honeymoon.

McCarthy was previously married to actor/director John Mallory Asher, who is the father of her son. The group divorced in 2005; later that year she began dating Jim Carrey. The group split in 2010.
