Ye explained the reason he’s running for president, and as usual, it’s a head-scratcher. According to Radar, he said, “The reason why I’m announcing that I’m running for President is I want the FCC to look at my money. If the FCC was looking at my money, there would be a possibility that Adidas wouldn’t have went into JP Morgan Chase and froze my account and put a $75 million hold on four different accounts.

It sounds like Cheryl Burke doesn’t really want to leave “Dancing with the Stars,” and she may have been trying to work the network into giving her a bigger role on the show. After Monday night’s finale, she told Extra, “My heart is broken, it really is. I don’t think it has 100 percent hit me.” Cheryl said of her decision to leave, “It’s not the first time… I have announced my retirement, but really I am holding myself accountable, because I have to, I need to evolve, I need to grow.” She added, “I would love to be able to evolve within this family and if it’s not here that’s fine, no hard feelings whatsoever, I get it.” Cheryl had said in the past she wanted to be considered for a role as a judge on the show, and with judge Len Goodman leaving, this would have been her opportunity. It just sounds like the network wasn’t interested in that.

“Aquaman” actress Amber Heard is suing her insurance company for refusing to cover her as part of her $1 million liability policy she took out to protect herself from defamation claims. Amber countersued New York Marine and General Insurance Co. after they said they’re not responsible to cover her claim because she committed willful misconduct in her defamation of Johnny Depp, RadarOnline.com reports. She’s saying there’s a deal in writing, and they’re breaching it. Even though she’s suing them, her lawyers don't want the case to proceed while she's appealing the $10 million verdict that the jury ordered her to pay Johnny Depp. According to the filing, claims "are not ripe unless and until there is a final judgment in the Depp lawsuit."

Gabby Windey may not have found the love she was looking for on “The Bachelor” or “The Bachelorette,” but she might have as a contestant on this season of “Dancing with the Stars.” There were rumors that there were some feelz between Gabby and her fellow DWTS co-star Vinny Guadagnino from “Jersey Shore,” and now that “Dancing with the Stars” has ended, she’s saying she’d be down to go out with him, according to Us Weekly.

In more DTWS news, Cheryl Burke announced she’s done with the show, and now Mark Ballas might be right behind her. He may have just won the Mirrorball trophy on “Dancing with the Stars” with Charli D’Amelio, but that doesn’t mean he’ll be back next season to defend his title. He said, “I don’t know [if I’m coming back. You know the older I get…” adding, “My body couldn’t even fathom a thought of doing this [in] six months, so I’ll let you know down the line.”

Fans were worried when Kelly Clarkson wasn’t on her show for two days, and others had to fill in for her at the last minute. She is supposed to be back today, according to OK. Not only were fans worried, they were not happy about the fill-ins, saying things like, "We want Kelly. Little boring.” It’s good to be loved, I guess. Her absence didn’t seem planned, especially considering Ryan Reynolds was scheduled as one of her guests, and who would want to miss that?
