KJ's Hollywood Dirt for 12/19/2013
Phil Robertson Has Been Suspended from "Duck Dynasty" 
 
 
A&E has suspended PHIL ROBERTSON from filming "Duck Dynasty", after he gave a very honest interview to "GQ" magazine, where he called gay people sinners . . . and said black people were happier before the civil rights movement.
 
 
A&E said, quote, "We're extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson's comments, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series 'Duck Dynasty'.
 
 
"The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely."  The show's fourth season premieres on January 15th . . . and he'll probably appear in most of it, since, at this point, most of the season has already been filmed.
 
 
In the interview, Phil said his family believes "strongly" that, quote, "if the human race loved each other and they loved God, we would just be better off."
  
 
But then he talks in depth about his views of the gay community and this comment is what has got people most worked up:  "We just love 'em, give 'em the good news about Jesus, whether they're homosexuals, drunks, terrorists.  We let God sort 'em out later."
 

Elsewhere in the interview, he had this to say about growing up in Louisiana, before the Civil Rights movement:
 
 
Quote, "I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person.  Not once.  Where we lived was all farmers.  The blacks worked for the farmers.  I hoed cotton with them.  I'm with the blacks, because we're white trash . . .
 
 
"They're singing and happy.  I never heard one black person say, 'I tell you what:  These doggone white people' . . . Pre-entitlement, pre-welfare, you say:  Were they happy?  They were godly.  They were happy.  No one was singing the blues." 
 
 
Barbara Walters Names Hillary Clinton the Most Fascinating Person of 2013
 
 
BARBARA WALTERS revealed her list of “10 Most Fascinating People of 2013″ on last night’s TV special, unveiling HILLARY CLINTON as the most fascinating of all.
 
 
Clinton said she will decide if she wants to run for president "sometime next year"
 
 
BILL CLINTON laughed when Walters asked what a presidential win would make him. “First mate,” he suggested. “I don’t know.”
 
 
 
An Ohio Man Died on a Skydiving Trip His Wife Won on "Ellen"
 
 
An Ohio man died in a skydiving accident in Australia on Saturday while on a trip his wife won from ELLEN DEGENERES.   The skydiving trip was given away on her show last January.
 
 
Cherilyn McGraw did a tandem jump, but her husband Brandon, a Marine with skydiving experience, jumped solo.
 
 
An employee from the skydiving school said that just before landing, Brandon turned sharply left, then right, then crashed into the ground.  
 
Ellen hasn't released a statement yet but I'm sure she feels terrible. 

 
Did Martha Stewart Just Dis Gwyneth Paltrow?
 
 
GWYNETH PALTROW has been trying to rebrand herself as a lifestyle guru these days.  But it sounds like the OG of domestic goddesses, MARTHA STEWART, isn't impressed.
 
 
The paparazzi asked Martha which of them was the "better lifestyle coach".  And she replied, quote, "Oh for Heaven's sake, you have to live to be a coach."  
 
 
Orlando Bloom Says the Goal of Men Should Be to Make All Mothers Happy
 
 
In a recent interview, ORLANDO BLOOM was asked to share something he's learned through his studies of Buddhism.
 
 
He said, quote, "The goal of men and the world should be to make all mothers happy.  Women, as mothers of the earth, deserve the utmost respect.  If the goal is to make all mothers happy, we won't go too far wrong."
 
 
Bloom was also asked about breaking his back when he was in drama school.  Apparently, there was a chance Orlando would never walk again, and the interviewer asked if he was afraid he'd never have sex again.
 
 
Orlando said, quote, "That was the first thing I asked . . . It was this four-day period where it was all a question mark. But I had this really strong belief that that wasn't my life.  That wasn't in the cards for me."
 
 
There was one thing Orlando did NOT want to talk about.  The interviewer asked him if it was "love at first sight" when he first saw his soon-to-be ex-wife MIRANDA KERR.
 
 
He said, quote, "It was a lot of things.  And actually, I'd rather not talk about it."
 
 
 
Paul Rudd Will Play Ant Man
 
PAUL RUDD has been chosen to play Marvel's next superhero, Ant Man . . . whose power, obviously, is that he can shrink down to the size of an insect.
 
The movie is due out in the summer of 2015, and it'll be directed by EDGAR WRIGHT, who did "Shaun of the Dead", "Hot Fuzz", "The World's End" and "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World".
  
In the comics, Ant Man was a founding member of The Avengers.  There's no word if he'll be rolled into any future "Avengers" movies.

Kim is flat-out denying this.  She Tweeted, quote, "Do people really think I would wax my daughter's eyebrows so young?  Come on, I'd wait until she's at least 2 1/2!"
 
 
Then she added, quote, "I'm kidding!!!  It's pretty sick for people to insinuate that I would wax my daughter's eyebrows.  They are thick, natural, and amazing!"

"I just think it should be illegal to call somebody fat on TV.  If we're regulating cigarettes and sex and cuss words because of the effect it has on our younger generation, why aren't we regulating things like calling somebody fat?"

Chris Brown Had His Probation Revoked, But He's Not Going to Jail
 
 
CHRIS BROWN had his probation revoked yesterday, but he won't be going to jail.  Instead, the judge is allowing him to stay in anger management rehab, where he's apparently been making progress.
 
 
Chris will continue to take the prescription meds his doctors have prescribed for him, and he's still not allowed to use medical marijuana.
 
 
Brown was arrested in October for punching a man outside a hotel in Washington, D.C. 
 
 
He got one step ahead of the justice system by immediately running to rehab, but he was kicked out because he threw a rock through his mother's car window after they got into an argument when she showed up for a counseling session.
 
 
He was then ORDERED to do a 90-day inpatient rehab stay.
 
 
Brown's probation is for his 2009 assault of RIHANNA. 
 
 
Is Lindsay Lohan Planning a Tell-All Book?
 
 
Is LINDSAY LOHAN working on a new career as an author?
 
 
TMZ is reporting that the actress has decided to spill all in a book that she's currently shopping around to publishing houses. And she won't hold back when it comes to sharing details of arrests, her drug abuse, her acting career and her family, reports the site. 
 
 
Still in its early stages, the book apparently started out as a series of journal entries Lohan wrote while in rehab as a therapeutic exercise.
 
 
 
Miley Cyrus Doesn't Mind Being Single Anymore
 
 
On BARBARA WALTERS' "Most Fascinating People" special, MILEY CYRUS talks about her breakup with LIAM HEMSWORTH . . . and how she's not afraid to be single anymore.
 
 
She says, quote, "I was so scared of ever being alone, and I think, conquering that fear, this year, was actually bigger than any other transition that I had, this entire year.
 
 
"I don't ever want to have to need someone again, where you feel like, without them, you can't be yourself."
 
 
Still, she doesn't regret anything . . . quote, "I don't think I realized what 19 truly is, and I got engaged at 19, and I definitely wouldn't change being engaged.  It was so fun wearing a fat rock for a few years.
 
 
"But now, I just feel like I can actually be happy.  I wait for those moments of silence, when I'm just at my house, by myself."  
 
 
The special airs tomorrow night at 9:30pm.
 
 
 
The Rock is the Top-Grossing Actor of 2013
 
 
"Iron Man 3" is the top-grossing movie of 2013 so far, but that doesn't make ROBERT DOWNEY JR. the top-grossing ACTOR of the year. 
 
 
That honor goes to DWAYNE "THE ROCK" JOHNSON, whose movies "Fast & Furious 6", "G.I. Joe:  Retaliation" and "Pain & Gain" have earned a combined $1.3 billion.
 
 
Downey came in second with $1.2 billion, but that's only for ONE MOVIE.  Yes, "Iron Man 3" has earned that much worldwide.
 
 
Here's the Top 10 . . .
 
 
1.  The Rock,  $1.3 billion
 
2.  Robert Downey Jr.,  $1.2 billion
 
3.  Steve Carell,  $964 million for "Despicable Me 2", "The Way Way Back" and "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone"
 
4.  Vin Diesel,  $887 million for "Fast & Furious 6" and "Riddick"
 
5.  Sandra Bullock,  $862 million for "Gravity" and "The Heat"

7.  (tie)  Billy Crystal and John Goodman,  $743 million for "Monsters University"
 
9.  Chris Hemsworth,  $701 million for "Thor:  The Dark World" and "Rush"
 
10.  Jennifer Lawrence,  $700 million for "The Hunger Games:  Catching Fire"
 
 
It's interesting to note that "Fast & Furious 6" put THREE people on the list this year.  I actually didn't realize these movies were so HUGE.
 
 
 
Target Is Refusing to Sell Beyonce's New Album, Because iTunes Got the First Crack at It
 
 
BEYONCÉ'S new album is available exclusively on iTunes for the next few days . . . but physical CD copies are expected to hit stores on Friday.  Well, MOST stores.
 
 
Target is REFUSING to carry the album, just because iTunes got first dibs.  A spokesperson says, quote, "When a new album is available digitally before it is available physically, it impacts demand and sales projections . . .
 
 
"We have appreciated partnering with Beyoncé in the past, [but] we're primarily focused on offering CDs that will be available in a physical format at the same time as all other formats."
 
 
Now, two things come to mind:  First off, even though iTunes sold nearly a million copies before it was made available to Target, does anyone NOT think that it has a much better chance of selling in their stores than a lot of the other CDs on their shelves?
 
 
And secondly, Beyoncé has previously given Target exclusive, special versions of her albums, and they weren't complaining then.  Maybe they just got spoiled.
 
 
 
Dave Matthews Has Formed a "Supergroup" with Jakob Dylan
 
 
A few weeks ago, DAVE MATTHEWS said he was working on a new DAVE MATTHEWS BAND album . . . but apparently he has another project in the works, because he's formed a new jam band called THE NAUTS.
 
 
It's a "supergroup," which also features WALLFLOWERS singer and BOB DYLAN'S son JAKOB DYLAN . . . plus Bob's guitarist Charlie Sexton, Charlie's brother Will and drummer Brady Blade.
 
 
The Nauts are currently working on their debut album, and there's also talk that the group will be performing live sometime soon.

Beyonce's Surprise Album Is a Phenomenon . . . and It's Selling Like Crazy
 
 
Somehow BEYONCÉ managed to SURPRISE THE WORLD by abruptly releasing a new album on iTunes at midnight on Thursday.  And it's selling like CRAZY.
 
 
The self-titled album sold over 430,000 copies in just ONE day, which is basically unheard of these days.  Especially when you consider it's only available on iTunes, and no one had ANY CLUE it was coming out . . . until it did.
 
 
In fact, it reportedly sold 80,000 copies within the first THREE HOURS it was available.
 
 
Obviously, that guarantees it a #1 debut on the Billboard 200 for last week.  The sales numbers for the week ran through yesterday, but the final numbers won't be released until Wednesday.
 
 
Early estimates say it racked up at least 600,000 downloads over the weekend.
 
 
The iTunes exclusive "visual" album is selling for $15.99, and contains 14 tracks.  It also includes 14 videos, with other bonus video content.  It's unclear if or when it'll be released on CD.
 
 
The "New York Daily News" reports that the album generated more than 1.2 million Tweets in just 12 hours, including a "Tweets per minute" spike of 5,300, which was roughly 300 more than "Sharknado" notched during its peak halfway through its original telecast.
 
 
Over the weekend, Beyoncé put out a video explaining that she wanted to unleash an album . . . as a surprise, with all the videos done . . . so that people could absorb it all at once.
 
 
She said, quote, "Now people only listen to a few seconds of a song on their iPods.  They don't really invest [in] a whole album.  It's all about the single and the hype . . .
 
 
"I wanted to make this body of work, and I feel like it's something that's lost in pop music.  I wanted people to have a different first impression . . . not just listen to a 10-second clip, but to actually be able to see the whole vision of the album." 
 
The celebrity world went nuts over the album. Here's some reactions:
 
Katy Perry:  "Don't talk to me today unless it's about Beyoncé.  Thanks."
 
Demi Lovato:  "Um . . . Beyoncé just dropped a surprise album?!!?!  #SooooGood  #OnRepeat . . . I'm literally FUH-REAKING OUT over this . . . the music vids?!!?!  I CANT HANDLE THIS MUCH FIERCENESS . . . #NoJoke #Dying . . .
 
"HOW IS ANYONE NOT TWEETING ABOUT #BEYONCÉ RIGHT NOW?!!?!?"
 
Lady Gaga:  "Good Morning! . . . Welcome back, Honey B.  We missed you!  <3"
 
Diplo:  "Did Beyoncé explode or something?  What's goin' on?   Confused."
 
Snoop Dogg:  "My girl Beyoncé just changed da game!"
 
Alicia Keys:  "Love this!!  Shine on mama!!!! ;-) @Beyoncé."
 
Cher:  "I haven't heard it, but how can you NOT love Beyoncé?"
 
Pete Wentz:  "I think Beyoncé just broke the Internet."
 
 
"The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" Tops the Box Office with $74 million
 
 
"The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" earned $73.7 million to easily top the weekend box office.  That's a lot for a movie with such a long run-time, but still less than the $85 million opening of the first movie, "An Unexpected Journey".
 
 
TYLER PERRY'S "A Madea Christmas" came in third with $16 million.  Here are the Top 5 movies at the box office:
 
 
1.  (NEW)  "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug", $73.7 million.
 
2.  "Frozen", $22.2 million.  Up to $164 million in its 4th week.
 
3.  (NEW)  "Tyler Perry's A Madea Christmas", $16 million.
 
4.  "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire", $13.2 million.  Up to $357 million in its 4th week. 
 
5.  "Thor: The Dark World", $2.7 million.  Up to $198 million in its 6th week.
 
 
"Family Guy" Brought Back Brian the Dog
 
 
"Family Guy" brought back Brian the Dog last night.  Brian was killed off on the November 24 episode, when he got hit by a car.  There was an immediate uproar on the Internet.
 
 
But last night, Stewie went back in time and saved him.  Brian's response was, quote, "Thank you for saving my life.  A lot of other families would have just gotten another dog and moved on."
 
 
After the episode aired, show creator SETH MACFARLANE Tweeted, quote, "I mean, you didn't really think we'd kill off Brian, did you?  Jesus, we'd have to be [effing] high.
 
 
"Oh and hey . . . thanks for caring so much about the canine Griffin.  He is overcome with gratitude."
 
 
Mark Wahlberg Says He's the Best White Rapper-Turned Actor . . . And Talks About His '90s Feud with Leonardo DiCaprio
 
 
MARK WAHLBERG is claiming the title of BEST WHITE RAPPER-TURNED ACTOR.
 
 
He says, quote, "I'm the best white rapper-turned actor.  EMINEM did a great job in '8 Mile', but he only made one movie so I definitely have that title."  
 
 
Peter O'Toole Is Dead at 81
 
 
Legendary actor PETER O'TOOLE died Saturday after a "long illness".  He was 81.
 
 
O'Toole's films include "Lawrence of Arabia", "Becket", "The Lion in Winter" and "My Favorite Year".  He was also the voice of Anton Ego in the 2007 Pixar movie "Ratatouille".
 
 
He won four Golden Globes, but never an Oscar.  In fact, he held the record for most Oscar nominations without a win, with EIGHT.  He was given an HONORARY Oscar in 2003.

Khloe Kardashian Is Filing For Divorce From Lamar Odom
 

TMZ is reporting that KHLOE KARDASHIAN is filing for divorce from LAMAR ODOM ... TODAY.
 

Their sources say Khloe will be citing irreconcilable differences in her legal docs. The split should be pretty cut and dry -- an ironclad prenup which kept all their assets separate ... and no kids.

 
The end was a long time coming ... Khloe had expressed dire concerns about the marriage ever since she learned about Lamar's crack addiction earlier this year, but she forestalled divorce for fear he'd OD or worse.

"Hillary Clinton, Angelina Jolie . . . and Miley Cyrus, if you're high as [crap] and really into tongues." 
 
 
This isn't the first time Pink has dissed Miley.  In September, Pink had this to say about Miley's "performance" at the "VMAs" . . . quote, "Am I into it?  No.  I think it's tacky . . . [Twerking?]  There's a place for that, and it's not on stage . . .
 
 
"She's really freaking talented . . . she can sing her ass off . . . [but] to go up there and do that?  She's cheating herself and she's cheating the rest of us . . . she can do better.  I've seen her do better."  
 
 
 
Does Justin Bieber Ask Girls If They Want to Be "Biebered"?
 
 
The not-always-reliable "Star" magazine claims that JUSTIN BIEBER has been testing out a new pickup line.  Supposedly, he's been walking up to girls and asking them if they want to be "BIEBERED".
 
 
A source says, quote, "His friends thought it was hilarious, but to Justin it's not a joke . . . he thinks he's so incredible in the bedroom that it's a privilege for girls to get with him."
 
 
 
George Clooney Won't Deny That He's Gay . . . Because He Doesn't Want to Insult Gays
 
 
Even though GEORGE CLOONEY bounces from one hot woman to another, the Internet still likes to spread gay rumors about him.
 
 
In the new issue of "Esquire U.K.", George says, quote, "[A headline read] 'George Clooney's Gay-Gay-Gay.'  And I said, 'I'm gay-gay.  The third one's pushing it.'"
 
 
But Clooney doesn't want to deny the rumors because, quote, "that's flat out insulting to the gay community."

There are reports that Barron is no longer pursuing charges . . . and one source says it's because someone who was at the party threatened to release photos that show the whole thing was his fault.
 
 
 
Britney Spears Wants a Baby Girl So She Won't Feel "As Alone in the World Anymore"

"I think it's going to be crazy.  I'm not going to feel as alone in the world anymore.  I'm going to feel like I have a second person, like, that's me."

Kate now has three children with three different husbands.  
 

Demi Lovato Couldn't Go 30 Minutes Without Cocaine
 
 
When DEMI LOVATO was hooked on cocaine, she was SERIOUSLY hooked.  During a recent interview she said, quote, "I couldn't go 30 minutes to an hour without cocaine and I would bring it on airplanes.
 
 
"I would smuggle it basically and just wait until everyone in first class would go to sleep and I would do it right there.  I'd sneak to the bathroom and I'd do it.
 
 
"And that was even with [a] sober companion, somebody who was watching me 24/7 and living with me.  I was able to hide it from them as well."
 
Taylor Lautner Is Not Getting It On With Kristen Stewart
 
 
We heard a silly rumor that TAYLOR LAUTNER was nailing KRISTEN STEWART.  Well, now we know it's not true.  Because Taylor is still dating Marie Avgeropoulos . . . an actress he met on the set of his upcoming movie "Tracers".
 
 
They were linked a few months ago, and this past weekend they were spotted snuggling at the JAY Z concert in L.A.  
 
"The Sound of Music Live!" Almost Beat Football in the Ratings . . . And "Bonnie & Clyde" Also Did Well
 
 
"The Sound of Music Live!" attracted nearly 19 million viewers to come in second place in the ratings . . . just behind "Sunday Night Football".
 
 
Even though a lot of them were "hate-watching" it, CARRIE UNDERWOOD'S acting was still popular enough that NBC is considering another live musical for next year.
 
 
The "Bonnie & Clyde" mini-series was another ratings surprise.  It was simulcast Sunday night on three networks . . . History Channel, A&E, and Lifetime . . . for a combined total of 9.8 million viewers.  That dropped to 7.4 million the second night.

KJ's Hollywood Dirt for 12/10/2013
MTV's Artist of the Year Is . . . Miley Cyrus
 
 
MTV has announced that their Artist of the Year for 2013 is . . . MILEY CYRUS.  (???)
 
 
They explained this INTERESTING selection by saying that Miley's duet with ROBIN THICKE at the "VMAs" was the most watched video on their websites . . . and that the MTV web page devoted to Miley had more hits than any other artist's.
 
 
You heard that right . . . MTV named Miley the "Artist" of the Year, partially BECAUSE of her completely artless performance at the "VMAs".  Let's hope this was just an OBJECTIVE honor based on Internet traffic.
 
 
For what it's worth, MTV's Artist of the Year in 2012 was ONE DIRECTION, and KATY PERRY was their selection the year before that.  So, you know, they aren't exactly looking for a modern day BOB DYLAN or anything.
 
 
Katy Perry Says She Had to Block Her Republican Parents from Coming to President Obama's Inauguration
 
 
KATY PERRY'S parents are evangelical preachers . . . so not surprisingly, they're pretty hardcore conservative Republicans.
 
 
But in the new issue of "Marie Claire", Katy says that when they heard she was singing at PRESIDENT OBAMA'S most recent inauguration back in January, they were ALL ABOUT IT.
 
 
She says, quote, "They didn't vote for Obama . . . [but] they were like, 'We can come!'  And I was like, 'No, you can't.'  They understood, but I was like, 'How dare you?' in a way."
 
 
Adam Sandler is the Most Overpaid Actor of the Year
 
 
Forbes.com has named ADAM SANDLER the Most Overpaid Actor of 2013.  For every dollar Adam is paid, his movies gross just $3.40.
 
 
The data was compiled before the release of this summer's "Grown Ups 2", which was a big hit.  And he flopped pretty hard with his previous two movies, "Jack & Jill" and "That's My Boy".
 
 
Sandler is followed by Katherine Heigl, Reese Witherspoon, Nicolas Cage and Kevin James.
 
 
Justin Bieber Says He's Just a "19-Year-Old Boy" 
 

We talk a lot about JUSTIN BIEBER drinking, smoking pot, hitting clubs and partying with women of questionable virtue all over the world.  But apparently, it's all because he's just a kid trying to FIND HIMSELF.
 
 
And by holding him accountable for all the stuff he does, we're HURTING HIS FEELINGS.
 
 
Justin was on RYAN SEACREST'S radio show hyping his new movie "Believe", and he explained how he's still JUST A BOY.
 
 
He said, quote, "People don't get to see me, and that I'm really a 19-year-old boy.  I'm becoming a man but I'm still 19, I'm still finding myself and when I have the media attacking me every day, it's no less bullying than what happens in schools."
 
 
"I think this movie really shows who I am as a person . . . I make mistakes growing up.  I'm not perfect;  I'm not a robot.  People forget I'm a human being [and] I have to make mistakes and grow stronger."  
 
 
 
Danica Patrick Is Happy That Trace Adkins Is Her Cohost for Tonight's ACAs
 
 
A lot of people were surprised when DANICA PATRICK was announced as TRACE ADKINS' cohost at the "American Country Awards".  Even she was a little shocked when the producers offered her the job.
 
 
Even though she's been on TV a million times, this is uncharted territory for her.  She says, quote, "I don't think hosting dinner at my house really counts." 
 
 
What helped seal the deal is that she won't be flying solo.  She says, quote, "With a guy like Trace who's done it for a few years and is such a cool, relaxed guy and so well-known and respected in the industry, and he has a great personality. 
 
 
"We're going to have fun.  I'm looking forward to it." 
 
 
The ACAs will air tonight at 8:00 P.M. on Fox.

Do Britney Spears' Handlers Refuse to Let Her Go Online . . . So She Doesn't Have a Meltdown?
 
 
Is BRITNEY SPEARS BANNED from the Internet? 
 
 
RadarOnline claims her dad and her manager won't let her go online . . . because they want to keep her in a, quote, "bubble", where she's protected from the haters.
 
 
Specifically, they're trying to keep her from reading the bad reviews that her new album, "Britney Jean", has been getting.  Instead, they told her that all the critics LOVE it. 
 
 
So how bad are the reviews?  Well, they aren't THAT bad, but most people are saying it's just OK.  However, the album is selling great.  It's been Number One on iTunes and it's expected to do well on the charts.
 
 
But her handlers are still worried that the criticism could send Britney into another, quote, "bad tailspin."  And that would be a disaster since her big Vegas show is set to launch in a few weeks, on December 27th. 
 
 
Amanda Bynes Out of Rehab?
 
 
The Daily Mirror claims Amanda Bynes has completed her treatment and is living with her parents again.

Amanda is reportedly now looking into college and  is thinking of majoring in fashion design.
 
 
 
Are Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis Fighting Over a Prenup?
 
 
ASHTON KUTCHER finally got out of his marriage to DEMI MOORE, so you can forgive him if he's being a little careful about his future.  Unless you're MILA KUNIS, that is.
 
 
The not-always-reliable "National Enquirer" says they're fighting over wedding plans because he wants a prenup . . . and she's not happy about it.
 
 
A source says, quote, "She's royally insulted because she stood patiently by his side throughout his fight with Demi.  They're both so bullheaded, and neither is budging.  This money battle is threatening to wreck their romance."
 
 
Has Kristen Stewart Switched Over to Team Jacob?
 
 
Sources say KRISTEN STEWART has switched from Team Edward to Team Jacob in real life.  In other words, she's now dating the other member of her "Twilight" love triangle, TAYLOR LAUTNER.
 
 
Witnesses supposedly saw Taylor sneaking out of Kristen's house early Wednesday morning.  Obviously that doesn't necessarily mean anything.  But on the Internet, it means EVERYTHING.
 
 
Taylor Swift Is Doing Secret Santa With Her Crew 
 
TAYLOR SWIFT and her road crew have been doing Secret Santas during their tour.

2.  "Khumba"  (Not Rated)  
 
 
This 3D, animated movie stars Jake T. Austin from Disney's "Wizards of Waverly Place" as a zebra born with stripes on his face, but none on his butt. 
 
 
When his superstitious tribe thinks he's to blame for a mysterious drought, he goes on a quest to find a "magic water hole" where the first zebras got their stripes.
 
 
But first he'll have to get past Liam Neeson, a half-blind leopard who believes that eating the half-striped zebra will make him whole again.
 
 
AnnaSophia Robb, Laurence Fishburne and Anika Noni Rose are also in it as other zebras . . . and Steve Buscemi does the voice of a wild dog.

The mayor of Gold Coast, Australia, Tom Tate, has released a video, asking JUSTIN BIEBER to come back and clean up the graffiti he did while in his city.  The BEST part is that he calls Justin a, quote, "pop princess."
 
 
Tate says he's willing to let Justin off the hook is if he comes back to Gold Coast to perform at some holiday event he's hosting THIS Saturday.
 
 
That's POSSIBLE, because Justin will be on tour in Australia through Sunday.  But unless this is just one big set-up, it seems doubtful that Justin would actually accept his offer.

A Ron Burgundy Scotch Is Coming Out Plus Ron Interviews Peyton Manning
 
 
Ron Burgundy does love his scotch.  Which makes this one of the more obvious marketing ideas:  A Ron Burgundy brand of Scotch.  It's being released by a company called Riviera Imports sometime this month.  

Tomorrow night on ESPN, WILL FERRELL continues his ferocious promotion of the Anchorman sequel.  He'll interview Peyton Manning, including asking him why he's never had a mustache.
 
 
"Anchorman 2:  The Legend Continues" comes out on the 18th.
 
By the way, Will  would have been surrounded by an entirely different news team in the first "Anchorman", if not for a few casting changes.  The team almost consisted of John C. Reilly, Chris Parnell and Ben Stiller, instead of David Koechner, Steve Carell and Paul Rudd.
 
 
 
Jennifer Lawrence, Sarah Silverman and a Woman from the "Blurred Lines" Video Made "GQ's" Year in Babes List

Jennifer Lawrence Confuses "Arachnophobia" with "Alcoholism"
 
 
JENNIFER LAWRENCE seems to have that "adorable, scatterbrained" thing down to a "T".  Like in a recent interview with "OK!" magazine in which she got tripped up over the word for the fear of spiders.
 
 
She was talking about encountering spiders on the set of "Catching Fire".  She said, quote, "Everybody told me there were no spiders, so when I saw three, I started crying.  Jungles are not easy when you're afraid of everything.
 
 
"I think I am a legitimate alcoholic.  No, what's it called?  An arachnophobic."
 
 

Bret Michaels Will Play a "Post-Apocalyptic Version of Himself" on "Revolution"
 
 
BRET MICHAELS will have a cameo on an upcoming episode of "Revolution" . . . where he's playing a, quote, "post-apocalyptic version of himself."  (???)
 
 
The show is set in the future, 15 years after the world falls into anarchy after suddenly losing all electricity.
 
 
Bret will even perform an acoustic version of "Every Rose Has Its Thorn".  Of course, it HAS to be acoustic because, you know, there's no power.
 
 
Bret's episode will air sometime next year.
 
 
 
"Glee" Is Inviting Its Original Cast Back for the Show's 100th Episode
 
 
"Glee" creator Ryan Murphy has announced that all the original cast members have been invited back for the show's 100th episode, which will air on March 18th.
 
 
It's too early to say who will and who won't accept those invitations.
 
 
For what it's worth, DIANNA AGRON Tweeted that she received, quote, "good news" on Monday . . . so perhaps this was what she was talking about.
 
 
 
Tootie from "The Facts of Life" Had a Baby Yesterday
 
 
KIM FIELDS . . . a.k.a. Tootie from "The Facts of Life" . . . had a baby boy yesterday.  This is the second child for Kim and her husband.  They named him Quincy Xavier.  They also have a 6-year-old son.
 
 
They'd actually been trying to get pregnant again for a few years.  Kim suffered two miscarriages in between kids.  She's 44 years old.

Will Renee Zellwegger Join "Dancing With the Stars"? 


There's talk that the producers of "Dancing with the Stars" are hoping to do a season packed with former Oscar winners.

Naturally, they probably wouldn't be able to land the bigger names, like Meryl Streep, Robert De Niro, Tom Hanks, Denzel Washington and Dustin Hoffman.  
 
 
 
George Clooney Hasn't Found the Love of His Life
 
 
Sorry, STACY KEIBLER, you weren't "the one".  In an interview with "W" magazine, GEORGE CLOONEY says he has NOT met the love of his life yet.

"I also always loved GRACE KELLY."
 
 
Katy Perry Says Perfection is Boring 

A lot of men think KATY PERRY is the perfect woman but Katy disagrees with that.  She reveals some of her flaws and annoying habits to Joy magazine.
 
 
"The first thing you should know about me is that I can't even boil an egg. Secondly, I'm always late. I can't help it; I get it from my mother."
 
 
"Also I find it hard to turn down sweets if there are some in the studio. I also don't always look immaculately styled. There are phases when I walk around with a swollen face due to acne. It's fine for people to see me like that. Then they know you don't have to be perfect to be successful. Perfection is boring."

Paul Walker Was Killed in a Car Crash on Saturday
 
 
Actor PAUL WALKER was killed in a HORRIFIC car crash on Saturday afternoon.  He was just 40 years old.
 
 
Paul was most famous for starring in the "Fast and the Furious" movies.  He played Brian O'Conner in all the movies except the THIRD one, "Tokyo Drift".  Here's what you need to know:
 
 
Paul was in Valencia, California . . . just north of Los Angeles . . . to attend an event his charity organization was putting on for typhoon victims in the Philippines.
 
 
The event was co-sponsored by a high-performance car shop called Always Evolving, which is owned by a former race car driver named Roger Rodas.  Roger was a close friend of Paul's, and Paul was an investor in his shop.
 
 
At around 3:00 P.M., Paul and Roger decided to go for a joy ride in Roger's 2005 Porsche Carrera GT . . . in an industrial park near the shop.
 
 
But Roger lost control, they crashed into a light pole, and the car immediately EXPLODED.  Roger and Paul were both killed instantly.
 
 
The Los Angeles County sheriff's department says speed was a factor.  A 45 mile per hour speed limit sign was attached to the light post they hit.
 
 
Paul. was in the middle of shooting the seventh installment in the "Fast and the Furious" franchise at the time of his death.  There's no official word on the movie's status . . . but the "Hollywood Reporter" says the plan for now is to delay production, but NOT to scrap it altogether.
 
 
Paul Walker's Death: The Celebrity Tributes
 
 
As you'd expect, many of PAUL WALKER'S former co-stars have commented on his tragic death this weekend.  Here are some highlights:
 
 
Paul's co-stars from the "Fast and the Furious" franchise:

Jordana Brewster:  "Paul was pure light.  I cannot believe he is gone."
 
 
Ludacris, who RHYMED his tribute:  "Your humble spirit was felt from the start, wherever you blessed your presence you always left a mark, we were like brothers and our birthdays are only one day apart, now you will forever hold a place in all of our hearts."
 
Dwayne Johnson:  "All my strength, love and faith to the Walker family during this heartbreaking time.  We find our strength in his light.  Love you brother."
 
 
Tyrese Gibson:  "My heart is hurting so bad no one can make me believe this is real.  God, I pray that you send clarity over this, 'cause I just don't understand.  My heart hurts, it's broken.  No one can convince me that this is real.
 
 
"Prayer warriors, please pray real hard for his only child, his daughter and family . . . My God . . . My God . . . I can't believe I'm writing this."
 
 
(Tyrese showed up at a vigil at the crash site, and broke down in tears.  He also took a piece of the wreckage home, and posted a photo of it online.  TMZ has the photo and video of him at the crash site.)
 
 
His co-stars from "She's All That":

Sarah Michelle Gellar:  "May Paul be in peace.  To his family, you are in our thoughts and prayers."
 
Gabrielle Union:  "There are no words.  Someone please say this is just another absurd Internet hoax."  (Initially a website claimed this was a hoax.  But sadly, THAT was the hoax.)
 
 
His co-star from "Varsity Blues":
 
James Van Der Beek:  "Thoughts and prayers tonight are with Paul Walker's friends and family, especially his little girl.  So sad.  Very heavy heart tonight.  I just remember him as being so effortlessly golden.  He had that way about him, that 'thing.'"
 
 
His co-star from "The Skulls":
 
Joshua Jackson:  "Damn.  Hard to imagine someone so full of life taken so soon.  My thoughts go out to your family.  RIP Pauly Walker."

(In the 10 days since it was released, "Catching Fire" has made $297 million in North America.  And when you add in the $277 million it's made in foreign markets, it pushes its worldwide haul to $573 MILLION.)
 
 
"Frozen" had a big weekend too, earning $66.7 million from Friday through Sunday, and $93 million from Wednesday through Sunday.  That's the best DEBUT ever for a movie over Thanksgiving weekend, and puts it just behind "Catching Fire" on the all-time Thanksgiving list.

Joe Jonas Lost His Virginity at 20 . . . And Smoked Pot With Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato
 

In a new piece he wrote for Vulture.com, JOE JONAS admits he lost his virginity at the age of 20.
 
 
He says, quote, "We decided to take the [purity] rings off a few years ago.  I lost my virginity when I was 20.  I did other stuff before then, but I was sexually active at 20.  I'm glad I waited for the right person."  Joe is 24 now, so that was about four years ago.
 
 
Joe doesn't say who that "right person" was, but he also talks about dating ASHLEY GREENE when he was 20, and he calls it, quote, "my first serious relationship."  She played Alice Cullen in the "Twilight" movies.
 
 
Joe also reveals that the first time he smoked pot was with DEMI LOVATO and MILEY CYRUS, when he was 17 or 18.  He says, quote, "They kept saying, 'Try it!  Try it!' so I gave it a shot, and it was all right.
 
 
"I don't even smoke weed that often anymore . . . Now I appreciate wine or a vodka-soda at the end of the day every once in a while."
 
 
If Joe was really 17 or 18, then this happened 6 or 7 years ago.  Miley and Demi are both 21, which means they would have been 14 or 15.

Michael J. Fox Says Matthew Broderick Almost Destroyed His Career
 
 
It's hard to imagine a time when MICHAEL J. FOX was struggling to make it in Hollywood.  But he actually almost packed it in and went back to his native Canada . . . and it was all because of MATTHEW BRODERICK.
 
 
He says, quote, "In 1982, I was desperate to have a job in LA.  I owed money, and my phone was cut off.  I was selling sections of my sectional sofa.  I was ready to go back to Canada and pick up nails on my brother’s construction site."
 
 
That was when "Family Ties" came up.  Unfortunately, the producers WANTED Broderick, so Michael wasn't holding out much hope.
 
 
He says, quote, "He'd usually go in first for auditions, and you'd hear hands shaking.  I was always losing jobs to Matthew Broderick."
 
 
He would have lost this one to Broderick too, but he didn't want to commit to a TV series . . . so Fox finally got his breakthrough role.
