Gaineses talk about end of 'Fixer Upper'

The couple behind HGTV's "Fixer Upper" is opening up about the reasons for ending the show after its fifth season, which premieres next month.

In an interview with People magazine, Chip and Joanna Gaines cite a grueling 11-month production schedule as a reason for the show's end. Chip Gaines says the show was demanding time from him that he needed to be giving to the couple's businesses, relationship and family.

Joanna Gaines isn't ruling out the possibility of a return to TV, saying "you just never know."

The Gaines' also addressed rumors of marital problems. The two say they have a solid marriage that Chip describes as in "a really good place."

Launched in 2013, "Fixer Upper" follows the two as they redo houses near their Texas home.



Lohan feels 'very bad' for Weinstein

Actress Lindsay Lohan says she feels "very bad" for Harvey Weinstein, who was fired by the company he co-founded amid decades of allegations of sexual harassment.

Lohan made the comments in a since-deleted Instagram video Tuesday. The video was captured by followers who posted it to social media. In it, she says that she has done several movies with Weinstein and he never harmed her.

Lohan also called on Weinstein's wife Georgina Chapman to "take a stand and be there for her husband." Chapman said Tuesday that she plans to divorce Weinstein. An emoji with a halo under the name "Harvey" was displayed on screen during the clip.

Lohan has been sharply criticized on social media over the video.

Her representative didn't immediately return a request for comment Wednesday.



Eminem to 'stomp' Trump with lyrical tirade

Eminem has unleashed a lyrical tirade against President Donald Trump, saying he "came to stomp."

The rapper took aim at Trump in a 4 -minute freestyle rap video that aired as part of BET's Hip Hop Awards on Tuesday night. Eminem focused several times on Trump's ongoing campaign against NFL national anthem protests, rapping: "so we focus on that instead of talking Puerto Rico or gun reform for Nevada. All these horrible tragedies and he's bored and would rather cause a Twitter storm with the Packers." Eminem also derided Trump as "a kamikaze who will probably cause a nuclear holocaust."

Eminem closed the piece by saying people who don't support the president love the military and the country, but "hate Trump."

The White House didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
