Stephen Collins wants you to feel sorry for him ... and it is just not working. The former Seventh Heaven Star, who has publicly admitted to molesting three girls, sat down to talk about the sexual abuse for an interview with Katie Couric, which airs on 20/20 on Friday.

“In 1973, there were two occasions when I exposed myself to this young woman,” he admitted to Couric. “Several months later, she came to visit and stay with us, with my first wife and me. My wife had gone to sleep, and she and I were watching TV alone together… I knew that something unthinkably wrong had just happened that I couldn’t take back.”

In the sitdown the 67-year-old said, “I’m a flawed person.” The former fictional pastor continued,“In the church, it’s actually one of the things I love about the church… it’s really one of the main things about the Christian faith, is you know, Christ said in so many ways, ‘Bring me that… which about you is broken, bring it,’ and most people are broken in some way.”

Saying you are "flawed" is really an understatement. "Flawed" is more like: "My apartment is messy even though I am 31-year-old adult who should know how to clean up after herself, or sometimes I yell at my mother when she doesn't deserve it, or I buy clothes for myself instead of shopping for Christmas presents for my family." "Flawed" is not: "OH I MOLESTED SEVERAL GIRLS!" We really don't think Collins is grasping the gravity of what he has done.

In October, Collins' sexual abuse was brought to light when TMZ published audio recordings that the actor's estranged wife, Faye Grant, secretly taped during a therapy session in which he confessed to abusing three young girls.

They've got to keep up the action for their show!

Kris Jenner, Khloe Kardashian and Scott Disick hit the tracks to race go-karts yesterday while the cameras rolled for Keeping Up with Kardashians, and you know that if E! wasn't paying her for this, Kris would rather be off making money elsewhere.

It's a little surprising The Lord joined in on the fun, considering girlfriend Kourtney just gave birth to their third child. We're dying to know their little boy's name! Let's hope they didn't take a page from Kimye's book and name him something completely absurd!

Angelina Jolie Is Labeled "Seriously Out Of Her Mind" In Latest Round Of Hacked Sony E-Mails

Posted on Thu Dec 18th, 2014 7:50am PDT       By X17 Staff

This keeps going from bad to worse!

In the latest round of hacked Sony e-mails that were leaked, Scott Rudin and Amy Pascal take another jab at Angelina Jolie, who the producer previously called a "minimally talented spoiled brat" in a previous exchange. This time, Rudin labels the A-list actress as "seriously out her mind" over their differing opinions of production on Cleopatra, which Jolie was set to star in.

The three of them were discussing securing directors for the project and the possibility of Brad Pitt's wife shaving her head for the role, but Rudin would occasionally remove the Oscar winner from the e-mail chain to say nasty things behind her back.

"The one thought I would ask you both is about her "bald". I think that made sense in earlier drafts but if we are saying every time she's in bed she has no hair or a shaved head it changes the sensuality. I wonder if we should keep it out and discuss as an idea with the director. But I worry we could scare off a director," Jolie wrote. "Kill me now. Immediately. We ought to make this with her and [Michael] Fassbender or [Tom] Hardy or [Benedict] Cumberbatch and go home. She's seriously out of her mind," Rudin wrote directly to Pascal.

Angie is never going to work with Sony again!

Gwen Stefani Hangs With Son Apollo

Posted on Thu Dec 18th, 2014 6:00am PDT       By X17 Staff

Gwen Stefani took her nine month-old son Apollo to a meeting in Beverly Hills, on Wednesday. Perhaps she was having him weigh in on her new music for some record execs?

The Voice coach told this week: "Kids know if something is good or not. Like, even Apollo, I swear, when we play Spark the Fire, he totally dances ... I play everything for them and they tell me if they like it or not. They tell me, 'You've got to write a good song that everyone is going to like.' And I'm like, 'Okay I’ll try.'"

Gwen will show off her musical talents when she and fellow Voice coach Pharrell Williams will perform her single "Spark the Fire" at the People Magazine Awards tonight in LA. Hosted by Nick Cannon, the show will be broadcast live on NBC.

Bruce Jenner went on a grocery run today in Malibu, and we couldn't help but notice that his ponytail is getting mighty frizzy with all those split ends! Couldn't the Kardashian sisters send their glam squad to treat their stepdad to a deep conditioning and a haircut?!

Now we know who started this trend!

Kanye West left the recording studio in Hollywood today, and the rapper was rocking a long tweed overcoat with jeans as she sashayed out of the building. Kim Kardashian has been pairing a coat with almost all her ensembles in recent weeks, and it's obvious from this picture that Yeezy is the mastermind behind her fashion choices!

We think the Louis Vuitton Don has great style, but can he please retire those ugly brown booties? They ruin every outfit he wears!

She's not trying to hide their relationship anymore!

Kylie Jenner posted a sultry Instagram snapshot of herself nuzzling an man's neck, and although she cropped out his face, it's easy to tell that it's her rapper boyfriend Tyga from his tattoos!

The controversial couple have yet to publicly comment on their romance, but they have been inseparable in recent months. They made their most recently appearance on Monday when they visited the cancer ward at Children's Hospital Los Angeles to hand out presents. The 17-year-old's father Bruce is too busy transitioning and her mom Kris is too focused on her model sister Kendall to care that their youngest daughter is dating a much older man!
