Couric to return to 'Today'?
We love rumors, and this is a doozy. The New York Post and TMZ say that with lovely Samantha Guthrie with kid and soon to go on maternity leave, NBC honchitos are thinking about inviting Katie Couric, who left Today in 2006, back to fill the gap. She and Guthrie and cohost Matt Lauer are all buds, and . . . we'll see.
Ariel Winter case settled
It was a tearful Los Angeles courtroom on Monday, as Ariel Winter, who plays Alex (the smart sister) on ABC's Modern Family, learned the outcome of her guardianship tussle. Since 2012, Ariel, 16, has been living with her sister, Shanelle Gray, amid charges of physical and emotional abuse against Ariel's mother, Chrisoula Workman. Chrisoula agreed to the current arrangement - but requested that Ariel watch a video montage of family photos before court adjourned. She did, with much emotion. Glenn Workman, her father, will control Ariel's finances, and the court will monitor the situation until Ariel turns 18.
