ST. ALBANS, Vt. (AP) -- Randy Quaid and his wife remain in custody in Vermont -- where they were locked up on charges that they skipped out of the U.S. five years ago after being charged with vandalism in California. The Quaids were taken into custody at the Canadian border while trying to get back into the U.S. from its northern neighbor. They were told last week by Canadian officials that they would be deported. They are wanted in Santa Barbara, California to face felony charges filed in 2010. The actor's attorney failed in an effort to get the bail lowered.


NEW YORK (AP) -- Carey Mulligan says it's hard to believe the story of women winning the right to vote isn't one that's been told in the movies before. She says she and the cast of "Suffragette" were "very excited" about the movie because it's a part of human rights history "that no one has ever made a film about." Mulligan says it was "a massive deal" to be involved because women's issues raised by the movie still resonate today. She notes that in Saudi Arabia, women are just this year being allowed to register to vote.

NEW YORK (AP) -- Carey Mulligan says if you want to know what it's like to raise a daughter -- come back and ask her in five years. She is the new mom of a daughter, Evelyn, born a couple of weeks ago. She says people keep asking her what it's like to raise a girl -- and she says that's "kind of hard to say now." The dad is Marcus Mumford of Mumford & Sons.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) -- The manager of a private New Mexico ranch says movie productions again have the green light to film on the site. Diamond Tail Ranch manager Roch Hart says he's happy a 20th Century Fox investigation found that the cast of "Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials" didn't swipe any of the artifacts scattered around the property. The movie's star suggested in a TV interview that actors took items they weren't supposed to, despite warnings to leave them be. But Fox says a probe into the claim turned up no evidence that really happened.


LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Kelly Ripa says the secret of her success so far is a simple one: "surround yourself with people who are better than you." She says it has helped her while starring on "All My Children" and hosting with her former "Live" co-host Regis Philbin. Ripa got her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame yesterday. Comedian Jimmy Kimmel teased that the diminutive Ripa is "the only star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame who is the same size" as her star on the sidewalk.

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The steal is on -- and we aren't talking postseason baseball. "The Voice" began the battle rounds last night. That's when team members go head-to-head, with their coach deciding who to keep. The hopeful who's cut can be stolen by a rival team. Team Gwen, Team Adam and Team Pharrell all picked up steals on last night's show. Dustin Christensen was wanted by both Adam Levine and Gwen Stefani after being dropped by Team Blake. Levine told Dustin they would make beautiful music together. Stefani said she was thinking about what duet she would do with Dustin. In the end, Dustin decided to go with Team Adam.

NEW YORK (AP) -- Raven-Symone is the latest panelist on "The View" to walk back her words. The ex-Cosby Show star now says it was in "poor taste" to say, as she did last week, that she wouldn't hire someone with an ethnic-sounding name. She was part of a discussion about a study on people who make racial assumptions based on names. She says if she were looking for an employee, she wouldn't hire someone named "Watermeloandrea." Raven-Symone says she wasn't targeting a specific race; she had just heard the name it in a popular online video. Last month, Joy Behar apologized twice -- after irking people with comments about nurses and people with Alzheimer's. Over the summer, Whoopi Goldberg drew fire for her support for fellow comedian Bill Cosby.


NEW YORK (AP) -- Conan's going to Armenia. Late night comedian Conan O'Brien is going to be the first American talk show host to do a show from Armenia. He will be joined by his longtime assistant Sona Movsesian, who is of Armenian descent. O'Brien says he'll make sure his next assistant is someone who was "born in five-star resort in Tuscany." The show from Armenia will air Nov. 10.


LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A former "Spy Kid" is perfect -- on "Dancing With the Stars." Alexa PenaVega gets the first round of perfect scores of the season. Her husband, Carlos PenaVega, was just a point behind. Last night's show featured the "switch-up," with the celebs dancing with new partners chosen by the viewers. The celebs get a break this week; everyone is safe. So this week's judges' scores will factor into next week's elimination. Paula Deen needs to be concerned. She trails the pack, even though her jive was praised by the judges as her best performance yet.

DANVILLE, Ill. (AP) -- Dick Van Dyke is taking steps to save his childhood home in central Illinois. The actor says the house, located in Danville, Illinois, will be restored and when it is, it will house a foundation to provide scholarships to young performers. Eventually, organizers of the Dick Van Dyke Foundation hope to set up a museum in the home where Van Dyke and his brother Jerry lived in high school after the family relocated from Missouri.

AM Prep-Today in History

Today is Monday, October 5, the 278th day of 2015. There are 87 days left in the year.

Today's Highlight in History:

On October 5, 1947, President Harry S. Truman delivered the first televised White House address as he spoke on the world food crisis.

On this date:

In 1829, the 21st president of the United States, Chester Alan Arthur, was born in North Fairfield, Vermont.

In 1931, Clyde Pangborn and Hugh Herndon completed the first non-stop flight across the Pacific Ocean, arriving in Washington state some 41 hours after leaving Japan.

In 1953, Earl Warren was sworn in as the 14th chief justice of the United States, succeeding Fred M. Vinson.

In 1955, a stage adaptation of "The Diary of Anne Frank" by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett opened at the Cort Theatre in New York.

In 1969, the British TV comedy program "Monty Python's Flying Circus" made its debut on BBC 1.

In 1970, British trade commissioner James Richard Cross was kidnapped in Canada by militant Quebec separatists; he was released the following December.

In 1974, the Irish Republican Army bombed two pubs in Guildford, Surrey, England, resulting in five deaths and dozens of injuries. (Four men who became known as the Guildford Four were convicted of the bombings, but were ultimately vindicated.)

In 1984, the space shuttle Challenger blasted off from the Kennedy Space Center on an 8-day mission; the crew included Kathryn D. Sullivan, who became the first American woman to walk in space, and Marc Garneau, the first Canadian astronaut.

In 1988, Democrat Lloyd Bentsen lambasted Republican Dan Quayle during their vice-presidential debate, telling Quayle, "Senator, you're no Jack Kennedy."

In 1990, a jury in Cincinnati acquitted an art gallery and its director of obscenity charges stemming from an exhibit of sexually graphic photographs by the late Robert Mapplethorpe.

In 1995, Seamus Heaney of Ireland won the 1995 Nobel Prize in literature.

In 1999, two packed commuter trains collided near London's Paddington Station, killing 31 people.

Ten years ago: Defying the White House, senators voted 90-9 to approve an amendment sponsored by Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., that would prohibit the use of "cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment" against anyone in U.S. government custody. (A reluctant President George W. Bush later signed off on the amendment.) Americans Robert H. Grubbs and Richard R. Schrock and Frenchman Yves Chauvin won the Nobel Prize in chemistry. Daniel Alfredsson scored twice in the final six minutes of regulation and once during the first shootout in NHL history, leading the Ottawa Senators to a 3-2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Five years ago: Faisal Shahzad (FY'-sul shah-ZAHD'), the Pakistani immigrant who'd tried to detonate a car bomb in Times Square, accepted a life sentence from a federal judge in New York with a smirk and warned that Americans could expect more bloodshed at the hands of Muslims. President Barack Obama convened the first-ever White House summit on community colleges, calling them the "unsung heroes of America's education system." Paroled burglar Steven Hayes was convicted of murdering a woman and her two daughters during a home-invasion robbery in Cheshire, Connecticut. (Hayes and fellow perpetrator Joshua Komisarjevsky (koh-mih-sahr-JEV'-skee) remain on death row.)

One year ago: A suicide bomber blew himself up in Grozny, killing five policemen and wounding 12 others as the Chechen capital celebrated the birthday of its pro-Russian leader, Ramzan Kadyrov (kuh-DEE'-ruhv). Geoffrey Holder, a Tony Award-winning director, actor, painter, dancer and choreographer, died in New York at age 84.

MEXICO CITY (AP) -- Usually showing up late for a date will get you a less-than-warm reception. But Rihanna got cheers -- even though she was two hours behind schedule for her performance in Mexico City the other night. She started what's known as her "777" tour with an exclusive party for about 2,000 fans. She thanked fans for their patience, saying their hanging in there until she showed up Wednesday night really made her "feel loved." The concert swing will see Rihanna perform seven shows in seven days in seven different cities. Stops on the tour include Toronto, Paris, Berlin and London before ending up in New York City.

NEW YORK (AP) -- Nicki Minaj has already won a lot of awards during her career. But she says her career isn't about collecting hardware to put in her trophy case. She says the biggest draw for her being awards shows is performing before a live audience at the venue and on TV. She says that's what she will be looking forward to at the American Music Awards on Sunday. She says she has been at awards shows where she totally forgot she was up for a nomination -- until her name was read off as a winner. The way she sees it, if she keeps making good music, the awards will take care of herself. If you should happen to run into Nicki between now and Sunday, you can remind her she's up for four nominations at the AMAs.

Nicki Minaj says she's more excited about performing at award shows than she is at winning trophies.

DETROIT (AP) -- They most recently were known as the Frederick Douglass Homes in Detroit. But back in the day they were known as the Brewster projects. And that was the place where Diana Ross and the Supremes grew up. Now, the housing project is about to become another memory. Detroit mayor Dave Bing says the demolition of the massive high rise apartment buildings could start early next year. The city has no set plans for redevelopment of the complex where Diana Ross, Florence Ballard and Mary Wilson lived before signing with Berry Gordy's Motown Records in the early 1960s. Bing says he knows the former Brewster projects have "a lot of history" -- but has since "become an eyesore."
