This morning’s news:

The Office’s Angela Kinsey has split from her husband, Warren Lieberstein. Her rep indicated that the split was amicable and that they “continue to be friends and spend time together with their daughter.”

Kate Walsh seems to be flirting with the idea of returning to Grey’s Anatomy. “I might,” she said to Usmagazine.com. “I’m not gonna’ say. Who knows what’s in the mind of [show creator] Shonda Rhimes.”

The Octo-Grandfather will be appearing on Oprah. Nadya Suleman’s father is scheduled to visit the talk show on February 24. This comes at the heels of the press fiasco that was created by Nadya’s mother, where she first spoke about her daughter’s inability to take care of the Octuplets, but then backtracked. It’s also being reported that the Suleman’s house is being forclosed on, due to the family not having paid their mortgage for 10 months.

Backstreet Boy Nick Carter will be on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today to talk about his struggle with alcohol abuse. “I had a lot of rude awakenings, warning signs, DUIs,” Carter said to Ellen during the episode. “I realized that it was wrong, [but] I decided to go and sort of punish myself. I went to the classes, did everything I was required to do. Then I’d . . . get back into it. Sort of fool myself in a way.”

Barbara Walters will interview Oscar host Hugh Jackman for her annual Oscar-night special where, Walters says, he will talk about his father and those persistent gay rumors. Other interviewees will include Anne Hathaway, the Jonas Brothers and Mickey Rourke. On today’s The View, Walters added that Rourke wast the “most intense” interview she had ever done.
