"AMERICAN IDOL"-DEXTER ELIMINATED
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- It was a bad night for 'Bama on "American Idol" last night. Jessica Meuse (MYOOS) and Dexter Roberts were this week's bottom two. Both are from rural Alabama. But it's Dexter who is going home. He did "Lucky Man" as his farewell song. While he's this week's lowest vote-getter, Dexter gets to be part of this summer's live Idol tour. There are just a half-dozen hopefuls left, as the season heads into its final month.

REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ATLANTA STAR ARRESTED
ATLANTA (AP) -- It's a real charge for a cast member of "Real Housewives of Atlanta." Porsha Williams faces a charge of battery -- this, after fellow cast member Kenya Moore told police she was attacked while taping the show. Police say they were called to the Biltmore Hotel on March 27, where Moore told an officer Williams assaulted her. When police went to question her, Moore said she couldn't fill out a statement at the time because she had to be on set. An arrest warrant was issued -- and Williams surrendered Wednesday night. She has since been released. No comment from officials from NBC Universal, parent company of the Bravo network, which airs the show.
WHOOPI GOLDBERG AND HER POT-PEN PAL
DENVER (AP) -- Whoopi Goldberg has nothing but good things to say about her pot pen. She has been using one of those marijuana-vaporizing pens to relieve symptoms from glaucoma. Goldberg writes about her experience in a new column for The Denver Post's Cannabilst Web site. And she says the "vape pen" helps her with the glaucoma headaches -- without getting her overly high off the pot. Goldberg says she's discreet about using the pen if she's in areas of the country where medical marijuana is illegal.
MAN CLAIMS HE WAS ABUSED BY X-MEN DIRECTOR BRYAN SINGER
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A man who claims he was sexually abused by "X-Men" franchise director Bryan Singer says he felt like "a piece of meat." Michael Egan III says he was a teen when he was sexually abused by Singer and others. He says he and other teenage boys were plied with drugs and promises of fame in Hollywood while they were abused and threatened. Egan says he did report the allegations to authorities at the time -- but doesn't know why charges weren't pressed. Meanwhile, Singer's attorney says in a statement that the allegations against Singer are "completely fabricated." Egan sued Singer in Hawaii and is seeking more than $75,000 on each of the four accusations he makes against the director.
"BEARS" - DAVE MATTHEWS
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Dave Matthews puts earth first and thinks you should too. Matthews says even with wars and politics and all the things that worry people, the health of the planet should trump all that. He calls it "the most important message that human beings need to hear." Matthews is a supporter of primatologist Jane Goodall's institute, which is promoting the new documentary "Bears." It opens today.
Dave Matthews says he knows a lot of things occupy people's minds, but it should be ecology.

FOX TO DO SEQUEL TO "MRS. DOUBTFIRE"
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- It was a hit more than 20 years ago. So Fox 2000 is looking to light a new fire under an old movie. The studio will re-ignite the comedy "Mrs. Doubtfire," which starred Robin Williams. No deals are in place yet, but a Fox spokeswoman says Williams and Chris Columbus are in talks to be aboard, with Williams re-doing the role of a man who dresses up as a Scottish nanny to spend time with his kids -- and Columbus directing. The original film made more than $400 million worldwide. Among the movie's funniest scenes is when Williams fake breasts catch fire -- and he puts them out with a pair of pot lids.
KEVIN SPACEY AND BILL CLINTON APPEAR AT RAIN FOREST BENEFIT
NEW YORK (AP) -- Kevin Spacey does a pretty mean impression of former President Bill Clinton. So it was no surprise that Clinton got on Spacey's case about that when they both appeared at a 25th Anniversary Rain Forest benefit concert at New York's Carnegie Hall. Spacey mimicked Clinton's praising his Netflix series "House of Cards," in which Spacey plays the president of the United States. Clinton told Spacey he always wanted to be an actor -- but Spacey aced him by getting into his line of work.
