NEWS: Kris Jenner Addresses Rumors Suggesting Her Divorce From Robert Kardashian Is Her Biggest Regret

Kris and Bruce Jenner Separate: The spouses announced their separation on Tuesday, Oct. 8 and shortly after, the rumors started flying about their imminent divorce. But not so fast. A source told E! News exclusively these rumors are simply "not true."

"The Kris and Bruce separation remains just that: a separation," says a source. "There is no divorce plan, no legal papers [are] being filed."

And while the split is official, the Jenner's noted they remain best friends and, as if to prove it to naysayers, the pair reunited for a party Thursday night in which Kris posted pics online of herself, Bruce, and Bruce's sons Brody and Brandon Jenner having a grand old time.

Friends, Cast Shot NBC

Jennifer Aniston Says She Was "Asked to Step Out" of Friends Cast Photos: Aniston revealed quite the secret this week: she was asked to sit out of cast photos for Friends in case she didn't end up playing the character Rachel Green, Us Weekly reports.

The reason why? According to James Burrows, the hit series' director, Aniston had shot five other pilots before landing her big breakout role. Aniston was originally signed on to star in the CBS sitcom Muddling Through when she met with Burrows for an audition.

"We took her in second position," he explained about hiring the 44-year-old actress. "So [when] that show was cancelled, we were able to use her."

Aniston let the cat out of the bag at Television Academy's An Evening Honoring James Burrows.

And that iconic photo of the cast in front of the fountain?

"When we were shooting the first grouping of cast photos [for Friends] in front of that fountain, I was asked to step out of a bunch because they didn't know if I was going to be still playing Rachel," Aniston said.

Prince Harry, Cressida Bonas

Prince Harry Gearing Up to Marry Cressida Bonas: Might we hear royal wedding bells soon?! By the looks of it, Prince Harry is ready to settle down with his girlfriend Cressida Bonas.

An insider tells E! News exclusively that the redheaded royal is getting serious with his ladylove. So serious, in fact, that the two are definitely talking marriage.

"Seeing Prince William and Kate [Middleton] get married and settle down has had a real effect on Harry," the source explained. "He's just seen how happy they are and he's realized that he wants that too."

Bonas is "very much up for getting more serious," the source added. "They want to remain very much as they are—with a private life away from the cameras. For now they want to enjoy as much time together before the seriousness of their relationship becomes public with announcements."

Cory Monteith, Glee Farewell FOX

Glee's Cory Monteith Tribute: Glee honored the memory of Cory Monteith on Thursday, Oct. 10, during the Finn Hudson tribute episode, "The Quarterback." It was a tribute to Monteith's legacy and it also laid to rest one of the sweetest, and most endearing, characters on TV, Finn Hudson.

"The Quarterback," begins a few weeks after Finn's death and does not include his cause of death or the funeral. The storyline centers around someone stealing Finn's letterman jacket and Mr. Schue inviting everyone to pay tribute by singing songs for Finn. Rachel (Lea Michele) shares a heart-breakingly beautiful rendition of Bob Dylan's "Make You Feel My Love."

And the episode brought big ratings: 7.4 million total viewers and a 2.8 in the demo. That marks a 75 percent rise from last week's episode and Fox's best demo numbers since September 2012.
