Danielle Bradbery wins "The Voice"

LOS ANGELES (AP) - The girl who had never done a big gig before auditioning for "The Voice" has won it all. Danielle Bradbery was so stunned at winning she sang about three lines of her celebratory song and then just stood there covering up the smile on her face. The band and background singers kept going. It also means another win for Team Blake, as Blake Shelton gets his third win. Michelle Chamuel from Team Usher came in second, with The Swon Brothers from Team Blake in third.

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) - "Days of Our Lives" wins the drama series honors for just the second time in 40 years at the Daytime Emmy Awards. The NBC soap opera began airing in 1965. It beat out defending champ "General Hospital" and three-time winner "The Bold and the Beautiful." Doug Davidson of "The Young and the Restless" and Heather Tom of "The Bold and the Beautiful" won the top acting honors. The awards show was on HLN, and the network's censor wasn't fast enough on the button. Corbin Bernsen used some of the words you aren't supposed to say on TV while introducing the "In Memoriam" segment. He got a big laugh when he said he was just using the language his mother, Jeanne Cooper of "The Young and the Restless," would have used.

Man of Steel takes box office race

LOS ANGELES (AP) - The latest incarnation of Superman opens at number-one this weekend. "Man of Steel" takes in $125 million, including the Thursday night screenings. That's the biggest June opening ever. It's also the second-best debut of 2013, so far. "Iron Man 3" is the only movie that had a better opening weekend. The comedy "This Is the End" - starring Seth Rogen - was a distant second. "Now You See Me" is third. "Fast & Furious 6" was fourth, followed by "The Purge."

LOS ANGELES (AP) - They aren't saying anything for the record. But it looks to be a baby girl for Kim Kardashian and her rapper boyfriend Kanye West. Nothing official from the presumptive new mom and dad - but tweets are flying around suggesting the baby has arrived. Kardashian's sister Khloe went on Twitter to boast about "the miracle" that is now "part of our family." She adds that mommy and baby are healthy and resting. Kardashian mom Kris Jenner linked Khloe's tweets to her own account - and wished West a happy Father's Day. There were various media reports saying the baby was born this weekend - but none of those reports quote anyone on the record. If the baby did arrive over the weekend, the child would have come into the world a month premature.

Erin Brockovich to face BUI charge

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Six months in jail, a $1,000 fine, and up to 96 hours of community service. Those are among the penalties that may come Erin Brockovich's way. The environmental activist who gave her name to the 2000 movie that won Julia Roberts an Oscar has been charged with operating a boat while intoxicated. The DA's office decided to press charges against her after her arrest over the weekend at a marina near Hoover Dam. A warden says two breath tests placed her blood-alcohol level at twice the legal limit in the state of Nevada. Brockovich has a court date in October.

Ringo Starr's Grammy Museum Exhibit

LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Beatles did music and made movies together. And Ringo Starr says they hung out a lot together, too. The drummer says when vacation time rolled around, they didn't go their separate ways. He says it wouldn't be odd for him to travel with John Lennon, Paul McCartney or George Harrison - and if he wasn't with one of them, they'd be with one of the other group members. Starr has an exhibit of Beatles stuff on display at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles. The displays include his old drum kit as well as clothes and memorabilia. He says while the Grammy museum has a lot of his stuff - there's a lot more of it where that came from.
