Pennsylvania man sets Plinko record on ‘The Price Is Right’

A Pennsylvania man was feeling pretty chipper on “The Price Is Right,” as he won a record $31,500 playing Plinko on the daytime show, TMZ reported.

In the segment that aired Thursday, 23-year-old Ryan Belz of Millerton was animated from start to finish as he dropped five Plinko chips down a zigzag maze to win cash prizes of various amounts up to $10,000. The Penn State graduate broke the previous mark of $30,500, KCBS reported.

The game debuted on the show in January 1983. A player technically could win $50,000 if all five chips hit the $10,000 slot in the middle of the board. 

Belz hit the $10,000 spot on his first chip, then added $1,000 with his second. He connected for $10,000 on his third attempt and then added $500 on his next try. On his final try, Belz kissed the Plinko chip and let it go. It went straight to the $10,000 spot again, and Belz, who had been demonstrative throughout his appearance, kicked his excitement into overdrive.

Belz plans to use his winnings to pay off his college loans, TMZ reported.

WATCH: Miley Cyrus honors Manchester attack victims with performance on 'The Voice'

Miley Cyrus isn’t coaching “The Voice” until next season, but that hasn’t stopped her from making an early appearance on the show.

On Tuesday, the 24-year-old hit-maker sang her latest single, “Malibu,” as part of the second half of the Season 12 finale.

Miley dedicated her performance to her “good friend” Ariana Grande and the victims of the Monday attack in Manchester, England, which took place outside of one of Grande's concerts.

“Our hearts are with you,” Cyrus said before launching into her breezy ballad surrounded by a scenic stage setting of wildflowers and waterfalls.

“Malibu” was released earlier this month and is the first taste of Cyrus' new musical direction. She previously made clear to the public that she is returning to her roots with her forthcoming record. “Malibu,” which she co-penned in honor of her fiancé Liam Hemsworth, is set to appear on her as-yet untitled album, due out later this year.

In addition to Cyrus' performance of “Malibu,” the star-studded episode included performances from artists such as Little Big Town, Chris Stapleton, Rascal Flatts and many more.

Cyrus coached on Season 11 of “The Voice.” She will return to coach on Season 13, alongside co-stars Blake Shelton, Adam Levine and Jennifer Hudson.

Sean Hannity speaks out after Fox News retracts Seth Rich story

Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich was shot and killed in 2016 in what authorities have said was an attempted robbery.

Since his death, some conservative media outlets have suggested that Rich had been in contact with WikiLeaks – a claim Rich's family said it had "seen no evidence" of – and may have been killed for political purposes, CNN reported. Recent developments regarding former FBI Director James Comey’s firing and the investigation into any potential collusion between President Donald Trump’s administration and the Russian government also were met with stories suggesting a cover-up in Rich’s death.

The slain DNC staffer’s family has since asked outlets to stop touting the conspiracy theory, according to CNN.

On Tuesday, Fox News retracted one of its stories about Rich.

Many wondered how Fox News anchor Sean Hannity would react, as he has spent a great deal of time discussing the conspiracy theory.

On Tuesday, Hannity told his radio audience that he would stay the course.

“I feel so badly for this family and what they have been through and what they are going through,” he said, mentioning the family’s desire to “find the truth.” Hannity also said he sent his “thoughts and prayers.”

From there, Hannity said finding a connection between WikiLeaks and a whistleblower in the DNC – “take Seth out of it” – was important as “the Russia collusion narrative is hanging by a thread.” Hannity suggested that the existence of the whistleblower would show that the source of the WikiLeaks revelation came from an internal source, not Russia.

“These are questions that I have a moral obligation to ask,” he said, promising to “do the mainstream media’s job.”

“And all you in the liberal media, I am not FoxNews.com. I retracted nothing,” he added.

Audio from Hannity’s show was shared by several sources, including liberal watchdog group Media Matters for America. The Fox News anchor accused the organization of trying to get him fired, referencing its published list of his advertisers:

But later Tuesday evening, Hannity appeared to soften his tone during his television show.

"Out of respect for the family's wishes for now, I am not discussing this matter at this time," Hannity said.

He added, “To the extent to my ability, I am not going to stop trying to find the truth. ... And at the proper time, we shall continue and talk a lot more."

'Dancing With the Stars' crowns new winner

Congratulations to Rashad Jennings and Emma Slater, the new winners of "Dancing With the Stars."

Jennings came into night two of the two-part finale on the top of the leaderboard. On Monday night, he and partner Slater performed two back-to-back flawless routines that left the judges and audience on their feet. He first performed a flawless Viennese waltz followed by a funky freestyle that earned high praises from the judges.

After part one of the finale, it was clear Jennings had his game face on.

For part two, Jennings and Slater performed a cha-cha and tango fusion as their “24 Hour Challenge.” Slater applauded Jennings’ willingness to “go there” throughout the season.

Bruno Tonioli called the performance “dazzling” and told Jennings he was a “rising star” throughout the competition. Len Goodman shared that was surprised Jennings made it to the finals and applauded him for making it all the way to the end. And fans will be happy to hear that Jennings is joining the summer “DWTS” Summer Nights tour.

Monica Lewinsky rips Roger Ailes for launching 'culture of exploitation'

Monica Lewinsky penned an op-ed piece in the New York Times ripping former Fox News chairman Roger Ailes, who died last week.

She opened her piece by saying her words are not meant to be another obituary for Ailes, but "I hope, instead, an obituary for the culture he purveyed — a culture that affected me profoundly and personally,” she wrote.

>> Former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes dead at 77

She continued, “Just two years after Rupert Murdoch appointed Mr. Ailes to head the new cable news network, my relationship with President Bill Clinton became public. Mr. Ailes, a former Republican political operative, took the story of the affair and the trial that followed and made certain his anchors hammered it ceaselessly, 24 hours a day.”

>> Medical examiner: Roger Ailes' death was accidental

She emphasized that their tactic worked like a charm. The Clinton-Lewinsky scandal hooked viewers as it unraveled, turning casual viewers into Fox loyalists. Fox cemented itself as the No. 1 news station, where it has remained for the last 15 years. Lewinsky also said that last year, the network made about $2.3 billion.

Lewinsky called it “a culture of exploitation,” and she railed on the environment fostered at Fox News and other cable news networks that use titillating stories to drive ratings.

"Their dream was my nightmare. My character, my looks and my life were picked apart mercilessly,” Lewinsky wrote. “Truth and fiction mixed at random in the service of higher ratings. My family and I huddled at home, worried about my going to jail — I was the original target of Kenneth Starr’s investigation, threatened with 27 years for having been accused of signing a false affidavit and other alleged crimes — or worse, me taking my own life. Meantime, Mr. Ailes huddled with his employees at Fox News, dictating a lineup of talking heads to best exploit this personal and national tragedy."

Lewinsky said the firing of Ailes after sexual harassment allegations, and more recently the firing of disgraced former Fox News ratings king Bill O’Reilly following multiple sexual harassment allegations and some $13 million in settlements paid to women, shows that Fox News’ culture extended beyond the ratings game.

“The irony of Mr. Ailes’s career at Fox — that he harnessed a sex scandal to build a cable juggernaut and then was brought down by his own — was not lost on anyone who has been paying attention,” Lewinsky wrote.

Billy Bush opens up about Trump 'Access Hollywood' tape

It’s been almost seven months, and Billy Bush is ready to talk.

Bush opened up to The Hollywood Reporter about the infamous “locker room talk” tape involving President Donald Trump that resulted in Bush losing his job at NBC. In the column, he said that he’s seen the tape only three times, once just before it was leaked and twice ahead of the interview with THR.

He admitted that seeing the tape left him feeling “totally and completely gutted.”

“Looking back upon what was said on that bus, I wish I had changed the topic,” he said. “(Trump) liked TV and competition. I could’ve said, ‘Can you believe the ratings on whatever?’ But I didn’t have the strength of character to do it.”

Bush also claimed that “plenty of people” knew about the tapes at NBC.

“I was kind of bopping along, and I don’t know if it was God or what that said, ‘OK, you’ve developed. You’re a pretty good guy. Let’s see how you handle this.’ And ka-boom!” he said. “It all comes apart.”

Despite being fired, Bush said he remains in contact with "Today” show co-hosts Matt Lauer and Hoda Kotb. As for his plans for the future, Bush said he is still hoping to get back into TV.

He has been pitching a new series to focus on pop culture, sports and celebrity interviews and said he hopes to show fans his softer, more empathetic side.

'SNL' season finale touts The Rock for president, features Trump's take on 'Hallelujah'

President Donald Trump will have one less thing to tweet about – at least for the next few months.

Saturday Night Live's 42nd season came to a close this weekend in a star-studded finale featuring five-time host Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and musical guest Katy Perry, as well as cameos by Tom Hanks and Scarlett Johansson. 

>> Read more trending news

The episode kicked off with its Trump team – including Alec Baldwin as the president and Johansson as first daughter Ivanka Trump – singing Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah." The sketch was a reprise of the show's post-election cold open, which featured McKinnon, playing defeated Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, performing the same song.

"I'm not giving up because I did nothing wrong, but I can't speak for these people," Baldwin's Trump told the audience.

>> Watch the sketch here

But the political talk didn't end there. During his monologue, Johnson jokingly announced that he will run for president in 2020 with Hanks as his running mate. 

"In the past, I never would have considered running for president," Johnson said. "I didn't think I was qualified at all, but now, I'm actually worried that I'm too qualified."

Hanks added, "Well, the truth is, America needs us. No one can seem to agree on anything anymore, except two things."

"Pizza and us," Johnson quipped.

Later in the show, Hanks appeared in another callback as the wildly popular (and bizarre) David S. Pumpkins – with a twist. The character, renamed David S. Pimpkins, was one of several guest stars in a rap video with an overabundance of featured artists.

Styles and Corden began with the solo star's first single, "Sign of the Times." 

"I went somewhere else emotionally," Corden said. "You weren't here in the car."

Styles confessed that the ballad “makes me cry — in a cool way."

At one point during the ride, the two men swapped clothes. Styles wore Corden’s navy polo shirt like “an international rock star,” while Corden wore Styles’ bright shirt, looking like he was “going to a barbecue,” according to the Hollywood Reporter. 

Styles and Corden also sang Outkast's "Hey Ya" and "Endless Love" by Lionel Richie and Diana Ross. 

They also pulled over the car to talk about films, then re-enacted scenes from “Notting Hill” and “Titanic.” Styles took on the female lead roles, telling Corden that he wanted him “to draw me like one of your French girls,” according to the Hollywood Reporter.
