You’ve got questions. Gwyneth Paltrow has got the answers. The Goop guru took to her blog, as per usual, to address criticism she faced over an “out of context quote” she gave to E!. No, it has nothing to do with conscious uncoupling or her Brentwood brick-and-mortar. This time, it’s all about “Mommy Wars.” [Vogue UK]

Barbara Walters is going out with a bang! The broadcast veteran, who will permanently be stepping behind the camera this week, had one last hurrah over the weekend, courtesy of Saturday Night Live. She joined the show’s “Weekend Update” where she applauded a myriad of impersonators for reducing her career “to a cartoon character with a ridiculous voice.” [Time]

Remember Keanu Reeves’ turn as demon hunter/slayer/exorcist in 2005’s Constantine? Well, NBC is serving it on a silver screen platter this fall with a TV show of the same name, this time starring Matt Ryan in the title role and sticking closer to the original Hellblazer comic the horror is based on.

While the Peacock is ushering in a new fall programming schedule, it’s leaving a network favorite behind. Parks and Recreation, starring Amy PoehlerRashida Jones, and Aziz Ansari, is coming to an end after seven seasons of laughs out loud. [Washington Post]

On the other hand, Parenthood, which risked cancellation amid pay cuts and cast negotiations, will be getting closure with a final, 13-episode season. [Deadline]

Estranged Clippers owner Donald Sterling is apologizing for his inflammatory remarks… sort of. In an exclusive interview with Anderson Cooper, the banned basketball billionaire asked for forgiveness for his “one mistake” and deemed Magic Johnson, who he blatantly insulted in a leaked recording, a good guy, but a poor example “for the children of Los Angeles.” [The Hollywood Reporter]
