Clinton jokes she's resigning from the 'Fox News presidency'

Hillary Clinton is mocking Fox News for "always talking" about her as if she'd won the presidency.

The 2016 Democratic presidential candidate is joking in an interview with the online news outlet NowThis that she is officially resigning as the conservative news channel's president of the United States.

She says the outlet is "always talking about the Clinton administration," despite the fact that she lost the election Donald Trump.

Clinton says: "I want to take this opportunity, sitting here with you, to announce that I am resigning from the Fox News presidency. "

She adds: "I think that we should just leave that behind us and whoever they want to blame for anything, they're going to have to find somebody else."

TV's 'Nashville' to end its run after upcoming sixth season

The country music series "Nashville" will return for its sixth and final season in January, ending a show that had to handle the jump to another network and the loss of a key star.

Cancelled by ABC after four seasons, "Nashville" jumped to CMT but creators are now pulling the plug after more than 120 episodes, citing "creative" reasons.

The show starring Hayden Panettiere has produced hits on the Billboard country charts, spawned U.S. tours and earned Connie Britton both Emmy and Golden Globe nominations. Britton's character was killed off in season five.

The final 16-episode season of "Nashville" premieres Jan. 4 and will air in two chunks, with the finale coming this summer. Episodes also stream on Hulu the day after they air on CMT.

Museums mark 100 years since death of French artist Rodin

Museums around the world are marking 100 years since the death of French artist Auguste Rodin, including the Rodin Museum in Philadelphia.

A ceremony marking the day of the artist's death was held Friday at the museum on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. Those taking part tossed red roses in a reflecting pool at the museum. Other events are planned throughout the year to mark the centenary.

Rodin's famous statue "The Thinker" stands outside the Philadelphia museum, which opened in 1929. The collection features other well-known works, including a cast of "The Burghers of Calais" and "The Monument to Honore de Balzac." A current exhibition is organized around Philadelphia's copy of another famed work, "The Kiss."

Yoko Ono's Basquiat painting sells for nearly $11 million

A painting by Jean-Michel Basquiat (zhahn mee-SHEHL' BAH'-skee-aht) from the collection of Yoko Ono has sold for $10.9 million.

Sotheby's says the work, titled "Cabra" (KAH'-bruh), was sold Thursday night in New York to an unidentified buyer.

The pre-sale estimate was $9 million to $12 million. Part of the proceeds will benefit the Spirit Foundations, founded by Ono and John Lennon.

"Cabra" was inspired by Muhammad Ali's 1970 knockout of Argentine heavyweight Oscar Bonavena, known as "The Bull."

It shows a bull's skull on a bright red background above a boxing ring. Hieroglyphics denoting a "TKO" — technical knockout —are above the skull.

The title, "Cabra," is Spanish for goat. When capitalized, GOAT becomes an acronym for "Greatest of All Time" — a reference to Ali.

Letters and milk jug: Warsaw Ghetto archive goes on display

Letters and other witness accounts of Jews in the Warsaw ghetto — the records of a community destroyed in the Holocaust — have gone on display for the first time.

The exhibition "What we were unable to shout out to the world," opened at the Jewish Historical Institute in Warsaw this week. It includes letters, journals, official records and other documents in Polish and Yiddish as well as an old metal jug used to hide the documents from the Emanuel Ringelblum archive.

Ringelblum, a Jewish historian and social activist, and some 50 to 60 helpers collected the documents during World War II to preserve a record for posterity of Jewish life in the Warsaw ghetto during the German occupation of Poland. They gathered on Saturdays, and came to be known as the Oneg Shabbat, meaning "Joy of the Sabbath."

They hid their trove in 10 metal cases and two metal milk cans, evidence that was recovered after the war.

Ringelblum and all but three of those who helped him were killed in the Holocaust.

The Germans imprisoned 400,000 Jews in the Warsaw ghetto, where they suffered severely from starvation and diseases before most were deported to the Treblinka death camp and murdered.

Jennifer Hudson files for protective order against ex-fiance

“American Idol” alum and current judge on “The Voice” Jennifer Hudson has obtained a protective order against her now ex-fiancé, David Otunga, after calling it quits on their relationship.

People magazine confirmed the news with a statement from Hudson’s representative.

“They have been in the process of ending their relationship for a number of months,” the representative said. “Today, Jennifer requested and received a protective order against her ex-fiancé. Jennifer’s actions are solely taken in the best interest of their son.”

The couple were engaged in September 2008 after less than a year of dating. They welcomed their son, David Daniel Otunga Jr., in August 2009. The engagement news came just before Hudson’s mother, Darnell Donerson, and her brother, Jason Hudson, were found dead by gunshot wounds in a Chicago home. The singer’s 7-year-old nephew was also found dead. Her former brother-in-law, William Balfour, was convicted of the murders in 2012.

Ortunga’s attorney denied any abuse allegations in a statement to People.

“Mr. Otunga has never abused or harassed Ms. Hudson or their son, and it is unfortunate, especially in today’s climate, that she would feel the need to make these false allegations against him. Mr. Otunga looks forward to his day in court and in being awarded the residential care of the parties’ only child,” the statement read.

TMZ reports that Otunga’s attorney, Tracy Rizzo, said Hudson is using Otunga’s status as a former WWE wrester against him. 

“As a result of Mr. Otunga’s career in the WWE, Ms. Hudson felt that she could give an award winning performance in court to portray herself as the victim,” Rizzo said, according to TMZ.

A well-preserved issue of the 1938 comic book that first featured Superman is heading to the auction block.

Profiles in History announced Friday that it will sell a copy of Action Comics #1 at a Dec. 19 auction in Los Angeles. The comic, which features Superman hoisting a car over his head on its cover, is expected to sell for between $800,000 to $1.2 million.

The Latest: Women who worked for Franken vouch for him

The Latest on allegations of sexual misconduct against Sen. Al Franken (all times local):

11:05 a.m.

Several women who worked for Minnesota Sen. Al Franken are vouching for him after allegations of sexual harassment by a radio host.

Los Angeles radio news anchor Leeann Tweeden alleged Thursday that the former comedian forcibly kissed her while rehearsing for a 2006 USO tour performance and later was photographed reaching out to grope Tweeden as she slept during a flight.

Franken apologized to Tweeden but said he remembers the rehearsal differently.

A group of eight former Franken employees issued a joint statement Friday morning saying the senator treated them "with the utmost respect."

The statement credits Franken for fighting for women's issues in the Senate and promoting female employees within his office.

Organizers of a major book festival in Atlanta where Sen. Al Franken was scheduled to speak say the senator has abruptly canceled his appearance.

A Los Angeles radio anchor on Thursday accused Franken of kissing and groping her during a 2006 USO tour.

The Minnesota Democrat had been scheduled to speak Monday night, the closing night of the two-week-long Book Festival of the Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta.

Keely Sime, the center's marketing director, said Friday that festival organizers received word Thursday that Franken would not attend his sold-out appearance.

Tickets for Franken's appearance ranged from $32 to $75 for VIP access, and included a copy of the senator's book "Al Franken, Giant of the Senate." Sime said the center is contacting those who purchased tickets.

The Los Angeles radio anchor who accused Sen. Al Franken of forcibly kissing and groping her during a 2006 USO tour says it's up to voters to decide whether he should stay in office.

Leeann Tweeden tells ABC's "Good Morning America" Friday that she decided to come forward with her story because she hopes to encourage other victims of sexual harassment and assault to tell their stories in "real time." Tweeden says she didn't speak out at the time of the incident because she felt complaining would hurt her career.

When asked if Franken should step down, Tweeden says: "That's not my call. I didn't do this to have him step down ... I think that's for the people of Minnesota to decide."

Sen. Al Franken is the latest public figure to be caught in the deluge of revelations of sexual harassment and misconduct— and the first member of Congress.

The Minnesota Democrat has apologized to Los Angeles radio anchor Leeann Tweeden and said he would welcome an ethics inquiry.

In a post Thursday on the KABC website, Tweeden accused Franken of forcibly kissing her and groping her during a 2006 USO tour. She later said that she accepts his apology.

Fellow Democrats have condemned Franken's actions, mindful of the current climate as well as the prospect of political blowback. Democrats and Republicans have called for the Senate Ethics Committee to investigate.

President Donald Trump weighed in, too, saying Franken just last week was lecturing people on sexual harassment and respect for women.

Model Gigi Hadid pulls out of Victoria's Secret China show

Supermodel Gigi Hadid said Friday she will not be walking the Victoria's Secret fashion show in Shanghai next week, a few months after Chinese internet users accused her of racist behavior.

Hadid said in a post on her Twitter account: "I'm so bummed I won't be able to make it to China this year. Love my VS family, and will be with all my girls in spirit!!"

Hadid did not give a reason and Victoria's Secret refused to comment on the issue.

"Victoria's Secret will not have a response," a spokeswoman said by email.

The surprise exit comes months after a video of Hadid triggered an outpouring of criticism on Chinese social networks. It showed Hadid squinting in a way that appeared to be a reference to a stereotype about Asian facial features.

Hadid responded by apologizing in September on China's popular Twitter-like microblog site, Weibo. "I have learned to be very careful of how my actions can come off or be portrayed, and I'm hopeful you'll accept my apology," the post said.

It was not immediately clear whether Hadid had been denied a visa. Asked about this at a regular briefing, a spokesman for China's foreign ministry said he was unclear about the issue.

It is not uncommon for entertainers and performers to be denied visas by Chinese authorities for political reasons.

Most recently, as tensions rose between China and South Korea over a U.S. missile defense system, some K-pop and K-drama stars had to cancel widely anticipated visits to China due to visa delays.

South Korean actor Ha Jung Woo could not get a visa needed for a movie project with China called "The Mask," starring Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi.

Actor Tom Sizemore denies groping allegations

Actor Tom Sizemore has addressed recent allegations that he groped an 11-year-old Utah girl during a 2003 photo shoot.

Sizemore says he never inappropriately touched the child and calls the claims "highly disturbing."

A police report released Wednesday says the child actor reported that Sizemore kissed and groped her during production of the movie eventually titled "Born Killers." Utah prosecutors declined to file charges, citing witness and evidence problems.

The police report first obtained by The Salt Lake Tribune says a woman responsible for children on set didn't see inappropriate touching. A production company lawyer said Sizemore had been fired, though he remains listed as a cast member on IMDB.

Sizemore's career has included prominent roles in "Saving Private Ryan" and "Black Hawk Down," but he's been dogged by drug abuse and domestic violence arrests.
