NBCUniversal(LOS ANGELES) -- There are only four red chairs on The Voice, but if the show ever added another, who should sit in it? In a new video on TVLine.com, this season’s coaches reveal their dream picks for a fifth coach.

Both Adam Levine and Gwen Stefani think Bette Midler would make a great addition to the show. Gwen says the Divine Miss M is “somebody we’d love to get to know a little better,” and Adam agrees.

“She looks like the kind of lady that doesn’t take any s***, and I like that,” Adam says.

Gwen also suggests Barbra Streisand because, she says, “that is an artist that can do everything.”

The other two coaches, Blake Shelton and Pharrell Williams, are a little sillier with their fantasy choices. Blake wants model Kate Upton as the fifth judge -- because he’s “a fan” -- and Pharrell says he’d pick either Kermit the Frog or Krusty the Clown.

The ninth season of The Voice premieres Monday, September 21 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.

ABC/Lou Rocco(NEW YORK) -- Rihanna is planning her own beauty line.

While promoting her new RiRi perfume at a meet-and-greet Monday at Macy’s in Brooklyn, New York, The Barbadian singer said a line called Fenty Beauty is next in her business plan.

"That is definitely something I am going to have my hands on and would love to do,” she told Refinery29.com. “It’s something that I’ve always wanted to do, but I’ve always had so much on my hands. But, this time, I’m going to make sure it happens. I'm going to find some time between albums and fragrance to do that. I promise."

Rihanna has enjoyed great success in a variety of endorsements, including a MAC lipstick collection, a fashion line with River Island, and serving as the face of Christian Dior. As she envisions her own beauty line, she already ideas for the perfect products.

“Lashes that could just put themselves on,” she says. “Lipstick that doesn’t move, but doesn’t dry your lips out, that you don’t need a liner for."

Sony/Screen Gems(LONDON) -- If left up to current James Bond author Anthony Horowitz, British actor Idris Elba would never portray 007 on the big screen.

"Idris Elba is a terrific actor, but I can think of other black actors who would do it better," Horowitz told the U.K.'s Daily Mail. "For me, Idris Elba is a bit too rough to play the part. It’s not a colour issue. I think he is probably a bit too 'street' for Bond. Is it a question of being suave? Yeah."

Instead, Horowitz can see Hustle's Adrian Lester as Bond.

Horowitz is the latest author to be tapped by Bond creator Ian Fleming's estate to continue writing novels about 007. Unlike the earliest Bond films, which were adaptations of Fleming's original novels, the latest Bond films -- with the exception of Casino Royale -- have been stories written specifically for the screen.  And Horowitz doesn't agree with some of what he's been seeing of the next Bond film,Spectre.

"I’m looking at the trailer and I am seeing a photograph of Bond’s family. The mum and the dad are in there and their faces are missing because the picture has been burned in a fire. This is going to be to do with his family background, and I know the fans are all terribly excited to know more, but I’m saying, 'Don’t tell me, I don’t want to know,'" he said. "I don’t want to know about his doubts, his insecurities or weaknesses. I just want to see him act, kill, win."

At least Horowitz likes Daniel Craig, calling him "a terrific Bond."

Spectre isout November 6.

Eddy Chen/The CW(LOS ANGELES) -- Jaime King is still trying to comprehend that she's a mother to two boys.

The actress, who gave birth to her second son, Leo Thames, last month, told ABC News that having two children under the age of two is "surreal."  "It feels like I'm living in a dream," she said in Los Angeles last week. "I feel like I'm so blessed that I'm still not even processing the fact that I have another child."

King and her husband of seven years, Kyle Newman, welcomed their first child, James Knight, 22 months ago. At nearly two years old, King said he's "in this magic time where he's just discovering everything every minute."

Meanwhile, "Leo Thames is a beautiful newborn. He's very sweet and he sleeps and he eats and he does what newborns do," she dished. "I don't ever want to be away from either of them!"

This baby has a very special godmother in pop superstar Taylor Swift, one of King's closest friends.

ABC/Adam Taylor(NEW YORK) -- Andy Grammer was just announced to the new cast of Dancing with the Stars, yet he's already lost his pro partner.

Peta Murgatroyd will have to sit out season 21 of the ABC competition due to an injury. She tells People magazine she's been diagnosed with four torn ligaments and a "floating piece of bone at the back of my ankle."

Murgatroyd, 29, explains that she underwent an MRI after sensing "something was not right" after taking part in a live Dancing with the Stars tour. She adds, "My doctor said I needed surgery and I knew I needed to put my health first if I want to keep dancing on the show into my 30s."

Murgatroyd, who will undergo surgery in mid-September, says it was "awful" for her to break the news to Grammer. "He had specifically asked to be partnered with me and I felt like I was letting him down," she says. "But he understood and has been a great guy about it."

Indeed, Andy tweeted Monday night, "Love you @PetaMurgatroyd !!!"

Murgatroyd will still help the "Honey, I'm Good." singer's new partner during rehearsals. Her replacement will be revealed Wednesday on Good Morning America.

Dancing with the Stars returns September 14 on ABC.

Monty Brinton/CBS(NEW YORK) -- Ne-Yo is engaged to model Crystal Renay and she’s having a baby.

The singer made the official announcement on Twitter, commenting. “Clearing the air..@mscrystalrenay and I are ENGAGED to be married next year. And yes we are expecting. #FromTheHorsesMouth."

Ranay posted a photo of them together on Instagram and wrote, “Our miracle is on the way and I couldn't feel more blessed. You're negativity means nothing to us. We are happy, we've BEEN happy and will always be HAPPY no matter what they say.  Thanking The Lord above for those who know my story know what this absolute miracle means to me.”

Ne-Yo has two children by his former fiancée, Monyetta Shaw: 4-year-old daughter Madilyn and 3-year-old son Mason. Shaw decided to have her tubes tied because they agreed to not have more children. After they broke up, Ne-Yo was slammed in social media.

He addressed that issue on Twitter, saying, “Clearing the air..I didn't force Mo to tie her tubes. Mutual decision. And the procedure is reversible. #SheCanHaveKids #FromTheHorsesMouth. He added, “Twit fam. THIS IS YOUR DIRECT LINK TO ME. From now on if you wanna know ASK ME. No 3rd party, no guessing, no BS #FromTheHorsesMouth."

ABC/Rick Rowell(NEW YORK) -- Monday night's episode of Bachelor in Paradise marked the arrivals of a few new cast members.

We were reintroduced to Chelsie Webster late in the previous episode. On Monday night she asked out Nick Peterson, who was eager to end his relationship with Ashley Salter. The breakup left Ashley feeling upset; she told the cameras she'd felt deceived.

Chelsie and Nick became acquainted on an ocean cruise, but they lacked chemistry.

Mackenzie Deonigi, from Chris Soules’ season of The Bachelor, joined the crew in Mexico and paired up with Justin Reich, who on Sunday night's episode went out with Amber James. Mackenzie and Justin took part in a Spanish ceremony led by a shaman that involved smoke and mud. It ended with the shaman telling them, "You're married."

Jaclyn Swartz, previously a contestant on Ben Flajnik’s season of The Bachelor, showed up to paradise and had her sights set on Jared Haibon. Jared was interested in her, too, but Ashley Iaconneti -- who's had a crush on Jared all season -- had a trick up her sleeve.

Ashley I. obtained an overnight fantasy suite date card from host Chris Harrison and approached Jared with it. Jared agreed to the date, and Ashley I. implied to the cameras she was considering losing her virginity to him.

That left us with a cliffhanger for the two-night season finale, which begins Sunday night on ABC.

Christopher Fragapane/FOX(NEW YORK) -- Although the news was broken through legal documents, Terrence Howard is pushing back against a New York Daily News report that claimed the Empire star divorced his third wife, Miranda Cristine Pak, on July 27. 

The newspaper, which obtained legal documents detailing the divorce, reported that Pak filed for divorce back in March, while she was still pregnant with her first child with Howard. The docs also revealed that the two had been living separately since August 2014. The couple's son, Qirin Love, was born in May.

Regardless, the two seem to be getting along quite well. The actor tweeted a picture of the two, smiling while sitting on an airplane, over the weekend. The caption read, "Heading out!!!" He also posted a photo with his new baby boy, with the caption: "My wonderful family day out!!!"

The actor warned his thousands of Twitter followers: "Can't believe everything you read in the papers..."

Howard was also married to Lori McCommas from 1989 until 2007. The couple had three children -- daughters Aubrey and Heaven, and son Hunter. He later married then divorced, Michelle Ghent. The couple was married from 2010 to 2013.

Rodolfo Martinez/Bravo(LOS ANGELES) -- Kim Richards reportedly has been banned from the Beverly Hills Hotel after her arrest at the upscale establishment back in April, according to TMZ.

A representative for the Beverly Hills police department told ABC News back then that after Richards refused to leave the hotel around 2 a.m., police took her into custody. The rep added that after the arrest, the reality star, who appeared to be intoxicated, cursed at officers and allegedly kicked one in the leg. Richards was arrested and charged with public intoxication, trespassing, resisting an officer and battery on a police officer, according to police.

TMZ reported Monday that Richards struck a deal with prosecutors. Instead of having to attend 52 Alcoholics Anonymous classes, be on probation for three years and do 30 days of community service, she'll have to just complete community service.

Still, her attorney argued that she can't do physical labor activities because of a foot injury. A judge ruled that if she can back up her claims with a doctor by September 14, she can avoid going to jail.

Timothy White/E!(LOS ANGELES) -- Kanye West was honored with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award at Sunday night's MTV VMAs and his wife Kim Kardashian, mother-in-law Kris Jenner and sisters-in-law Kourtney Kardashian and Kylie Jenner were there to support him. But some were wondering, "Where's Khloe?"

Turns out, she was babysitting her eldest sister's five-year-old son Mason Disick.

"Mase and I are having a raging slumber party!!" the reality TV star tweeted.

Still, it's clear that Khloe caught the show from home. After West announced at the end of his speech that he planned to run for President in 2020, she made her support known by posting a "Mr. West for President" banner on Twitter.

West can also count on Kourtney Kardashian's vote. After the show, she shared a photo of herself standing in front of the White House with her sisters. "Keeping Up with the Kardashians Season 427: White House Edition," it read.

ABC/Craig Sjodin(NEW YORK) -- Derek Hough told People magazine he's "stoked" his sister, Julianne, is engaged to professional hockey player Brooks Laich [like].  In fact, the two have gotten along so well, Laich even asked Derek Hough to be a groomsman at the wedding.

The professional dancer has an idea where the ceremony will take place. He told the magazine it will be somewhere "outdoors, in nature. ...Sentimental. Something special to us. I have an idea where it's going to be. It's going to be amazing."

Wedding guests shouldn't expect Derek to perform with his sister. "We perform enough. We've been on two tours," he said. "Me and [Laich] might do something funny. We'll have fun. When my family gets together, they dance anyways. They dance more than me and my sister."

As for his sister's fiance, Derek says, "He's the best.  We went surfing yesterday. We've been hanging out a lot. He's a good guy."

There's no word on when Julianne Hough and Laich will make it official.
