Rivers' WIN nomination is for best actress in a comedy series for her performance in last year's "September Issue" episode of Fashion Police.   [READ MORE]

Since the arrival of Ebola on United States' shores, a couple of things have become abundantly clear: No matter how often health officials say that the disease is not transmitted through casual contact — it's easier to get a cold — plenty of Americans are witch-hunt-level paranoid about catching it. And too many folks have no clue about the geography of Africa or how big the continent is.

Clearly, Kylie Jenner isn't fazed by the latest tabloid talk. Following a string of speculative reports surrounding the 17-year-old star's perfectly plump pout, the TV personality took to Instagram on Monday to share yet another selfie which showcases her very full lips. She denied that she has received lip injections, posting on her Twitter page that she's "bored" by the speculation.

Japan is not exactly Ebola country, but when a high-level delegation from Tokyo arrived in Pyongyang this week, two of the first people they met were dressed in full hazmat gear. North Korea is always on guard against outside influences, but now that it perceives the deadly disease to be a threat, its anxiety has reached a new level. It has banned tourists, is mulling strict quarantine requirements, has put business groups on hold and is looking even more suspiciously than usual at every foreign face coming across its borders.

A nurse who vowed to defy Maine's voluntary quarantine for health care workers who treated Ebola patients followed through on her promise Thursday, leaving her home for a bike ride. Kaci Hickox and her boyfriend stepped out of their home Thursday morning and rode away on bicycles, followed by state police who were monitoring her movements and public interactions. Police couldn't detain her without a court order signed by a judge. Hickox contends there's no need for quarantine because she's showing no symptoms. State officials were going to court in an effort to detain Hickox for the remainder of the 21-day incubation period for Ebola that ends on Nov. 10 It was the second time Hickox broke quarantine. She left her home Wednesday evening briefly to speak to reporters, even shaking a hand that was offered to her.
