CELEB PHONE HACKER: A Los Angeles judge has sentenced Christopher Chaney, who hacked into the cell phones of Scarlett Johansson and Mila Kunis, to 10 years in prison.

TMZ said Chaney, 36, was sentenced Monday.

He was arrested last year and in March pleaded guilty to nine felony charges, including identity theft, wiretapping and unauthorized access and damage to a protected computer.

Chaney was accused of leaking nude photos of actresses Johansson and Kunis on the Internet.

Prosecutors said Chaney hacked into the phones and email accounts of dozens of others, as well, including singer Christina Aguilera and actress Renee Olstead.


DENISE STAPLEY: Denise Stapley, a 41-year-old sex therapist from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, has been declared the winner of the TV reality competition show "Survivor: Philippines."

Stapley beat out fellow finalists former "Facts of Life" star Lisa Whelchel and author and professional speaker Mike Skupin to win the $1 million prize during Sunday's finale.

Jeff Probst serves as host of the "Survivor" franchise, which just wrapped its 25th season.


JENNA DEWAN-TATUM: Jenna Dewan-Tatum's publicist says the U.S. actress and wife of film star Channing Tatum is pregnant with their first child.

The couple, who are both 32, "are pleased to announce that they are expecting the birth of their first child next year," the Tatums' representative told People.com Monday.

The baby's gender and anticipated birth date were not immediately reported.

Dewan-Tatum is a cast member of TV's "American Horror Story: Asylum."

Channing Tatum is People magazine's current Sexiest Man Alive titleholder. His film credits include "Magic Mike" and "21 Jump Street." The couple married in 2009.


NATHAN FILLION: Actor Nathan Fillion, who plays a mystery novelist on TV's "Castle," is to serve as host of the Writers Guild of America Awards ceremony in Los Angeles.

The event is to take place Feb. 17 at the JW Marriott Los Angeles L.A. LIVE.

"When I first accepted the honor of hosting the Writers Guild Awards, I was confused and actually thought I was receiving one," Fillion said in a statement Monday. "Since I play a writer on TV, I felt perhaps someone was under the impression I deserved an award and I wasn't about to correct them. However, now I'm in the perfect position to present myself with whichever award I choose. Who's going to know? At the very least, I can network with the most talented writers in the business in preparation for my next round of unemployment. It's a win/win."

"We think Nathan's an extraordinary choice to host the 2013 Writers Guild Awards," said the ceremony's executive producer Cort Casady. "Not only does he play a writer brilliantly on 'Castle,' but also, in addition to acting, he sings, dances, is a popular voice talent, and has a great gift for comedy. And with over 1.5 million Twitter followers, Nathan brings a smart, enthusiastic audience to our celebration of writing."

Fillion is also known for his work on the TV shows "One Life to Live," "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Firefly."
