Randy Travis Sues to Block DWI Patrol Car Video Release

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- Country music star Randy Travis has filed a lawsuit to prevent the release of patrol car video of his 2012 drunken-driving arrest in North Texas.

The lawsuit names the Texas Department of Public Safety and the attorney general's office.

A judge originally granted a defense request to block the video from being released. But media groups requested the video from DPS, and the attorney general's office ruled this month that the judge didn't have discretion to bar the video's release.

Prosecutors have said the singer was found naked by a road after crashing his Pontiac Trans Am. He pleaded guilty in January to driving while intoxicated and was sentenced to two years' probation.

DPS and the attorney general's office didn't immediately comment Friday.

HILARY SWANK: DEATH BECOMES HER?

WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (AP) -- Hilary Swank says even her own mom wonders why it seems she never lives long enough in the movies to see the credits roll. The actress has starred in a number of films in which her character -- or someone close to her -- dies. Swank says it isn't like she asks her people to go out and find scripts in which she ends up dead. But she says she does ask her people to point her to roles in which there are stories about women who can show the world "real, meaty, courageous, brave snippets of life." Her latest movie is "You're Not You" -- in which she plays a former pianist suffering from Lou Gehrig's disease. Not trying to spoil anything -- but Swank says it she doesn't think it gives anything away to tell you that her character doesn't survive this one, either.

Hilary Swank says it's not like she goes looking for roles with people who end up dead.

Hilary Swank says she's aware that death is often an element in her movies.

HALLE BERRY'S BRAS

NEW YORK (AP) -- Want to get your hands on some of Halle Berry's lingerie? You now have a chance -- now that she's reviving a line of underwear that has its origins in France. Berry is launching a collection of 10 bras and panties that will be sold at Target. They are born from the Scandale line -- which was started in 1932. Berry is an owner of the line -- and helps in the design of the lingerie. She notes women usually buy lingerie for themselves -- and if they find something they feel good in, it makes them "feel sexy and feminine and empowered." She says as a result, "their partners also reap the benefits." She spoke about the line while showing off a bra in her product line -- one that retails for under $20.

CLAIRE COFFEE: SETTLING IN

NEW YORK (AP) -- Claire Coffee has been married almost a year. But she says it's only now that she's starting to settle into the relationship. That's because her husband, Chris Thile, is in the band The Punch Brothers and is "on the road most of the time." The star of NBC's "Grimm" says the couple has now relocated to Portland, Oregon -- where the show is shot. And Coffee says, that means they'll have more time to spend together, even though her hubby is still an active part of the group. While she may not see much of her husband, Coffee says she gets to see lots of fans of Grimm in Portland. She says fans keep showing up -- even though producers don't go telling people when and where they will shoot. The first episode of season four of Grimm airs tonight on NBC.

Claire Coffee says Portland, Oregon isn't the easiest place to have a long-distance relationship.

<<CUT ..012 (10/24/14)>> 00:10 "hard to miss"

Claire Coffee

Claire Coffee says fans of "Grimm" seem to have no problem tracking down where the crew is shooting on any given day.

<<CUT ..013 (10/24/14)>> 00:10 "nice and respectful"

Claire Coffee

Claire Coffee says she thinks fans have inside information on how to find where "Grimm" is taping.

"THE ROOSEVELTS"-RATINGS

NEW YORK (AP) -- "The Roosevelts" are a ratings hit. The Ken Burns series has given PBS its biggest audience in two decades. That makes it Burns' third most popular film -- after "The Civil War" and "Lewis & Clark: The Journey of the Corps of Discovery." PBS says the series on the Roosevelts had an average audience of 9.2 million viewers. The saga of Teddy, Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt featured seven two-hour episodes that aired last month.
