"Transformers" Made $100 Million This Weekend
"Transformers: Age of Extinction" was the only new movie in theaters this weekend, and it had the best opening weekend of the year with a strong haul of $100 million in its first few days of release.  That's slightly better than the last "Transformers" movie, which made $97.9 million . . . but not as good as "Revenge of the Fallen", which made $109 million.
Here are this week's Top 5 movies:
1.  (NEW)  "Transformers: Age of Extinction", $100 million. 
2.  "22 Jump Street", $15.4 million.  Up to $140 million in its 3rd week.

Showbiz Hero of the Day: Amy Adams Gave Up Her First Class Seat to a Soldier
AMY ADAMS is our SHOWBIZ HERO OF THE DAY, for giving up her first class airplane seat to a SOLDIER on a flight from Detroit to L.A.  She tried to do it inconspicuously, but other passengers saw what happened.  
One of those passengers was Jemele Hill from ESPN's "Numbers Never Lie".  She says, quote, "As I was getting seated, I saw the flight attendant guide the soldier to Ms. Adams' seat.
 "She was no longer in it, but it was pretty clear that she'd given up her seat for him.  I was incredibly impressed.  [She] did it so quietly and quickly that it speaks to her character."
Amy took the soldier's seat in coach, and even took pictures of some of the other passengers.
When the press contacted Amy, she said, quote, "I didn't do it for attention for myself.  I did it for attention for the Troops."
Amy's father was in the service, and she spent her early years living on military bases.

Hours Before His Arrest Thursday, Shia LaBeouf Was Chasing A Homeless Guy Around for His Hat
Several hours before being arrested for disrupting a Broadway revival of "Cabaret" this past Thursday, SHIA LABEOUF was seen out on the street . . . chasing a homeless guy around for his hat.  
Witnesses said it looked like Shia thought the hat was his, and was trying to get it back.  He was also acting like he knew the homeless guy, saying stuff like, "It's me, Shia" and acting, quote, "whacked out."  
Since Shia didn't get to finish watching "Cabaret", LIZA MINNELLI'S rep sent him a DVD copy of the 1972 movie version.  He says, quote, "I figured he may want to find out how it ends."
Khloe Kardashian Got a Jeep and a Bunch of Jewelry for Her 30th Birthday
KHLOE KARDASHIAN turned 30 on Friday, and there was plenty of celebrating.  
Khloe's boyfriend FRENCH MONTANA bought her a brand new $49,000 Jeep and $30,000 worth of jewelry.    There was actually a party Thursday night, where Khloe got her cake.
Miley Cyrus Got a New Dog, and Says Her Dead Dog Gave Her Its Blessing
MILEY CYRUS has a new dog.  She lost her Alaskan Klee Kai, Floyd, to a coyote in April.  Then her mom bought her a puppy, but it didn't work out.  (An Alaskan Klee Kai is kind of like a Husky, but smaller.)
She got her new dog last week.  He's a Collie named Emu Coyne Cyrus and she says she got Floyd's BLESSING.
She posted on Instagram that she had a memorial service for Floyd, and that quote, "I felt my angel Floydy give Emu his blessing.  I prayed to Floyd to just give him a touch of his awesomeness, and he has."  
Mark Ruffalo Says Ben Affleck Won't Let Jennifer Garner Be Friends with Him
JENNIFER GARNER and MARK RUFFALO played soul mates in the 2004 movie, "13 Going on 30".  And apparently Jen's husband BEN AFFLECK wants to make sure that never happens in REAL life.
On Thursday, Mark was a guest on "Watch What Happens Live", promoting his new movie "Begin Again".  And someone called in to ask if he and Jen are still friends.
According to Mark, they were GREAT friends . . . until she started dating Ben, who put a stop to it.  Quote, "We had a great time together . . . But then Ben came on the scene, and that was the end of that."
Ben and Jennifer started dating right around the time "13 Going on 30" came out.  It's also worth noting that Mark WAS already married at that point.

Shia LaBeouf Was Arrested After Disrupting a Broadway Play


SHIA LABEOUF was ARRESTED last night after disrupting a Broadway revival of "Cabaret".


Sources say he was being loud and disruptive during the first act, smoking inside the theater and, quote, "slapping random people on the behind and on the back of the head."


Shia was led out in handcuffs by security, then given over to police when he wouldn't stop being unruly.


Even when he got to the police station, he refused to calm down, telling them, quote, "[Eff] you!  I'll [eff] you up!"  They decided not to undo the cuffs, so he started SPITTING, and they had to put a mask on him.


He also told police, quote, "I have millions and millions of dollars and attorneys and I'm going to ruin your career."  And he called the cop who was fingerprinting him a homophobic slur.



Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy Are Leaving "The View" . . . Were They Fired?


Yesterday, SHERRI SHEPHERD and JENNY MCCARTHY announced that they're leaving "The View".  Sherri spent seven years on the show, and Jenny only lasted one.


Sherri said, quote, "After careful consideration, it's time for me to move on.  I'm extremely grateful to BARBARA WALTERS for giving me the opportunity . . . and I'm incredibly grateful to my 'View' family and my fans for supporting me."


Later in the day, Jenny Tweeted, quote, "If Sherri goes . . . I go too.  #Sisters.  My 'view' will be changing too.  As [it] will with many hard-working folks.  Thanks to everyone at the show for your dedication and an amazing year."


They both made it sound like it was THEIR decision, but several reports say they were FIRED.  Supposedly, the show is looking to start all over . . . although as far as we know, WHOOPI GOLDBERG will remain.




'N Sync Will Be Together at Lance Bass's Wedding . . . But They Won't Perform


When LANCE BASS and his fiancé get married, 'N SYNC will be fully represented.  But don't expect them to perform. Lance says, "Yes, there will be a reunion.  But I doubt we'll be performing 'Bye Bye Bye'.  I think it's a little cheesy if I sing at all at my wedding."


But he adds, quote, "There will be a stage, there will be a band, so I'm sure if you see that on stage, people are going to be popping up and doing whatever they want to do, that will be an open mic for anyone else."




NBC is Doing a Miley Cyrus Concert Special 


NBC will air a two-hour MILEY CYRUS concert special called "Miley Cyrus:  Bangerz Tour" on Sunday, July 6th.  It'll include performances from the tour, and behind-the-scenes footage.




Miley spends so much time onstage playing with her crotch, showing almost her entire backside, simulating relations on blow-up dolls, making lewd gestures with large phallic symbols and glorifying marijuana.


So good luck finding two hours' worth of FCC-friendly footage from that, NBC.




Robert De Niro Crashed Somebody's Apartment to Watch the U.S. / Germany Game


ROBERT DE NIRO really wanted to watch the U.S. / Germany World Cup game yesterday.  Unfortunately, he was filming his upcoming movie "The Intern" in Brooklyn's Cobble Hill neighborhood.


The production actually sent an email to a nearby apartment building, asking if they could put a satellite dish on their roof and run a cable from it down to the street, so he wouldn't miss the game.


But before that could happen, De Niro found an easier way to watch.  One of the residents in the building says, quote, "Apparently he found a house of people watching it and joined them."




Mark Wahlberg's "Transformers" Movie and Keira Knightley's "Begin Again" Are In Theaters


1.  "Transformers: Age of Extinction"  (PG-13) 


Mark Wahlberg discovers that the truck he's planning to strip for parts is actually an injured Optimus Prime.  He and his family are then attacked by a strike team sent by Kelsey Grammer, a CIA agent who wants to destroy all the surviving Transformers.


Stanley Tucci is also in it as a scientist trying to reverse engineer the autobots so he can build his own Transformers.  And a blonde minx named Nicola Petz is the eye candy in this one.  She plays Marky Mark's daughter.


This movie also busts out the DINOBOTS . . . has John Goodman as the voice of a Transformer named Hound . . . and brings back the old voice of the cartoon Megatron (Frank Welker) to do the voice of a new villain named Galvatron.


2.  "Begin Again"  (R) 


Keira Knightley plays a songwriter who came to New York to help her boyfriend with his first record deal . . . and then gets dumped after he becomes a rock star.  She also does her own singing in the movie and has five songs on the soundtrack that's out Tuesday.


Mark Ruffalo is a record exec who convinces her to record her own music, "True Grit's" Hailee Steinfeld plays his daughter, and Adam Levine from Maroon 5 makes his acting debut as Keira's boyfriend.  Mos Def and Cee Lo Green are also in it.

Did Khloe Kardashian's Boyfriend Try to Hook Up with a Radio Intern?


A radio intern claims KHLOE KARDASHIAN'S boyfriend FRENCH MONTANA tried to hook up with her after a concert last week in Boston.


The girl was trying to get an interview with French, and he brought her onto his tour bus . . . alone.  Then he GOT ON TOP OF HER, and even told her, quote, "I have a lot to lose . . . You know that I have a girlfriend!"


But ultimately she pushed him off and ran out of the bus.  


So far Khloe has made no comment.




North Korea Will Retaliate if the New Seth Rogen / James Franco Movie is Released


North Korea is apparently threatening to ATTACK us if SETH ROGAN's new movie "The Interview" is released as planned.


Seth plays a TV producer, and JAMES FRANCO is an on-air host.  When they get a chance to interview North Korean dictator KIM JONG-UN, the U.S. government asks them to ASSASSINATE him.  


Yesterday a spokesman for the North Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs took a pretty hard stance against the movie.  He said, quote, "Making and releasing a movie on a plot to hurt our top-level leadership is the most blatant act of terrorism and war and will absolutely not be tolerated.


"If the US administration allows and defends the showing of the film, a merciless counter-measure will be taken." 


There's no word exactly what that "merciless counter-measure" would be. 


Seth doesn't sound too worried.  He Tweeted, quote, "People don't usually wanna kill me for one of my movies until after they've paid 12 bucks for it.  Hiyooooo!!!"




Adam Levine Knows That People Think He's a "[D-Bag]," But He Doesn't Think He Is


Some people think ADAM LEVINE sort of comes off as a D-BAG . . . and he's aware of that, but he doesn't believe that's an accurate assessment.


In an interview with "GQ", Adam says, quote, "Would it be really easy to assume that I was a [D-bag]?  Definitely.  100%.  But that doesn't mean that I am.  Or maybe I am, I don't know.


"I'm going to get really intricately self-reflective right now, and ask myself the hard questions . . . to find out, once and for all, definitively, whether or not I'm a [D-bag]."  


He adds, quote, "You know what the gist of this article is?  Your opening line can be:  'You don't have to like me, but I'd prefer it if you did.'


"That's kind of how I feel.  I'm not the easiest person to love right off the bat, you know.  If I knew everyone in the world, they would love me.  Every single last [effing] one of them."




The Fiancee of One Direction Star Zayn Malik Passes Gas in Front of Him


ONE DIRECTION star ZAYN MALIK is engaged to PERRIE EDWARDS, the blonde from a British girl group called LITTLE MIX.  And we know it's love, because she doesn't mind passing gas in his presence.


Perrie's bandmate JESY NELSON says, quote, "Perrie will happily fart in front of Zayn but I'd never do that in front of [my boyfriend].  I'd go outside and fart instead."


Perrie adds, quote, "I do it because I'm engaged."




Michael Jackson Once Declined to Party With Bon Jovi . . . But Sent Bubbles the Chimp in His Place


Here is a bizarre story from the 80s that we're just hearing about. MICHAEL JACKSON once declined an invitation to party with BON JOVI . . . but he sent a representative in his place.  This was back in 1987, when they were performing at different arenas in Japan, and staying at the same hotel.


Michael had taken over a whole wing of the hotel, and basically spent all his time practicing his dancing.  But his people did invite Bon Jovi to meet with him.


They basically just made small talk, then JON BON JOVI invited Michael to come down to their part of the hotel and hang out.


Michael never showed, but he sent BUBBLES THE CHIMP in his place.  Jon says, quote, "We proceeded to get very drunk, have a bunch of water fights, knock on doors, typical classic rock star things to do in the eighties.


"We were having a blast two floors below with Bubbles, and he was up there practicing his dancing . . . because he was just so ultra-über-focused on being Michael Jackson.  The blessing was the curse."

Justin Bieber Was Involved in a Car Accident Yesterday


JUSTIN BIEBER was involved in a car accident in Beverly Hills yesterday, but he is going to be okay.


Justin was a passenger in an Escalade that was being chased by the paparazzi.  The car was going pretty fast trying to lose them, and was hit by a BMW that pulled out of a parking structure.


Justin immediately jumped out of the Escalade with his head covered, got into another car and sped off.




Is Jenny McCarthy Being Bounced from "The View"?


After just one season, JENNY MCCARTHY might be getting bounced from "The View".  Fox News says her contract won't be renewed because, quote, "she just didn't appeal to the daytime audience market.  They couldn't relate to her."


Ratings have also dipped slightly since Jenny joined the show.  (Rumors are already kicking around that Bethenny Frankel is in talks to come onboard.  Maybe they're eyeing her up as Jenny's replacement.)




Eliza Dushku and Rick Fox Broke Up


ELIZA DUSHKU and former L.A. Laker RICK FOX have ended their relationship.


Apparently, a key factor in the breakup was distance.  Eliza says, quote, "Rick's an L.A. guy and I'm a Boston girl."


Eliza is actually back in Boston and plans on starting work on a college degree in the fall.  She says, quote, "I'd rather be a little physically cold here than emotionally cold in L.A.  I missed my town and my family."




Queen Elizabeth Visited the Set of "Game of Thrones" . . . But She Didn't Sit on the Iron Throne


QUEEN ELIZABETH THE SECOND and her husband toured the set of"Game of Thrones" yesterday, as part of their visit to Northern Ireland. 


Unfortunately, the shot everybody was waiting for never happened . . . because the Queen did NOT sit on the Iron Throne. 


She gave it a good look, though, and the monarchy posted a picture of it on Instagram.  Yes, the British monarchy has its own Instagram.




The World Cup Won the Ratings Week


"World Cup Soccer" was the most-watched show of the week.  Sunday's game where Portugal scored in the final moments of the game to block a U.S. win was watched by just under 14 million people on ESPN.


And the game where the U.S. beat Ghana drew another 9.7 million viewers.  Our next match-up is tomorrow, where we'll go up against Germany.  They're our biggest competition in our World Cup Group and we're both undefeated going into tomorrow's match.

Kim Kardashian Explains How to Take the Perfect Selfie
If you want to know how to take the perfect selfie, you might want to ask an expert.  And who's more of an expert than KIM KARDASHIAN?  Here are three tips from Kim on taking a good selfie:
Use a Mirror.  This one seems obvious.  Why WONDER how it's going to look?  When you take a picture in a mirror, you know EXACTLY how it's going to look.
Go Black and White.  You always want the best lighting you can get.  But when it's lacking, black and white helps de-emphasize the shadows and other lighting imperfections.
Hold the camera up high.  Your face looks better and THINNER when you're stretching your neck a little to look up. 
J-Lo's Mom Doesn't Want Her Back Together With Marc Anthony

Mom was in the audience when Wendy told J-Lo, quote, "In my mind, you'll get back with Marc."  But when the camera panned to Mom, she was shaking her head and mouthing the word "nope."
But J-Lo said she and Marc are the best of friends, and committed to raising their kids.  And when Wendy described him as, quote, "devastatingly hot," J-Lo's mom seemed to agree.  
"Jersey Boys" and "Think Like a Man Too" Are In Theaters
1.  "Jersey Boys"  (R) 
Clint Eastwood directs this movie about Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, which was adapted from the Broadway musical.  It stars John Lloyd Young.  He's the guy who won a Tony award for playing Frankie Valli in the Broadway version.  Christopher Walken is also in it as a local mobster.
Until the Beatles came along, the Four Seasons were one of the most popular bands of the '60s.  Some of their #1 hits include "Sherry", "Big Girls Don't Cry", and "Walk Like a Man".  You'd also know their 1975 hit "December 1963 (Oh What a Night)".
2.  "Think Like a Man Too"  (PG-13) 
This is the sequel to that 2012 comedy which was based on Steve Harvey's book, "Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man".  In this one, more relationship chaos ensues when the couples hit Las Vegas for the wedding of Regina Hall and Terrence J's characters.

3. "Coherence" (Limited Release)
This psychological thriller is getting a lot of buzz.

I'll keep you posted on the details.
It stars NICHOLAS BRENDON (Xander from Buffy the Vampire Slayer) Emily Foxler, Lorene Scafaria, Maury Sterling, Elizabeth Gracen, Lauren Maher, Hugo Armstrong and Alex Manugian.
On the night of an astronomical anomaly, eight friends at a dinner party experience a troubling chain of reality bending events. Part cerebral sci-fi and part relationship drama, COHERENCE is a tightly focused, intimately shot film that quickly ratchets up with tension and mystery.
4. "Third Person"  (R)  (Limited Release)
Liam Neeson plays a writer using Olivia Wilde as his inspiration, while Kim Basinger waits for him back home.  His story is somehow interconnected with two other love stories . . . with Adrien Brody falling for a beautiful Italian woman in Rome . . . and with Mila Kunis trying to regain custody of her son with the help of James Franco.

Police Were Called for Loud Music at Selena Gomez's House
SELENA GOMEZ was investigated for a noise complaint at her L.A. home on Tuesday night.  It was really no big deal, though.
E! Online says it was a basically a "non-event" . . . they were asked to turn down the music, they did, and all was well.  It was actually LIVE music.  Just a few people with instruments, including a piano.
Selena posted a picture of the festivities on Instagram yesterday, with the caption, "Tacos, live music and candles . . . such a beautiful night with beautiful people." There's no word if JUSTIN BIEBER was there.
Three People Were Arrested For Throwing Beer Bottles at Taylor Swift's Rhode Island Mansion

On Sunday, two guys and a woman were arrested and charged with disorderly conduct after they threw beer bottles, yelled profanities, and flipped off the security guard.  The guard took photos of it on his cell phone and called the cops.
TMZ talked to one the suspects and he said they "harbored no ill will" toward Taylor.  They were just drinking some beer and things got out of hand. 
He also said they weren't flipping off the guard . . . they were just throwing up the peace sign like Taylor does in the video to her song "22".

The Guy Who Broke Into Sandra Bullock's House While She Was Inside Had an "Arsenal" of Weapons at Home
This month, a crazy stalker broke into SANDRA BULLOCK'S house while she was inside.  The police were able to stop him before he got too far . . . but it sounds like this guy really IS dangerous.
When the police searched his home, they found a, quote, "arsenal of weapons," including SEVEN MACHINE GUNS.
Apparently, the guy, Joshua Corbett, wasn't armed at the time of the break-in.  Sources say he wasn't there to burglarize it . . . he was obsessed with Sandra and wanted to see her.
He never did, because she'd locked herself inside a room.
The D.A. has now charged Corbett with 19 felonies, including seven counts of possession of a machine gun . . . two counts of possession of an assault weapon and 10 counts of possession of a destructive device.
He was also charged with stalking.  After the weapons were discovered, Corbett's bond was increased from $185,000 to $2.2 million.  He could be looking at up to 12 years in prison if convicted of all charges.

And 30 of them were flown in specially and put up in a fancy hotel for the festivities.  The other 20 are locals.  He even rented out an entire nightclub.
A source says, quote, "Leo had bottles and bottles of Dom Perignon champagne going around.  He really went all out on it and spared no expense.  It was a really lavish party.
"He didn't really cozy up to any one girl in particular.  He was really sociable and kept wandering from one woman to the next.  He seemed keen to have a good time with all of them."

Casey Kasem is in Hospice and Life Support Measures Have Been Stopped
 A judge ruled yesterday that CASEY KASEM'S daughter KERRI could end life support measures, so she did.  Casey is in hospice now, and TMZ says they're playing old recordings of "American Top 40" for him.
The judge said that keeping Casey alive by continuing to give him food, water and medication was likely causing him more pain than it was worth.  Casey is 82, and suffers from severe dementia and symptoms similar to Parkinson's disease.
Casey's kids say he left the following health directive . . . quote, "If the extension of my life would result in mere biological existence, devoid of cognitive function, with no reasonable hope for normal functioning, then I do not desire any form of life-sustaining procedures, including nutrition and hydration."
Not surprisingly, Casey's wife JEAN is NOT happy with this.  She came out of court saying Kerri, the judge and others now have Casey's BLOOD ON THEIR HANDS.  
Jean claims she and Liberty, the daughter she had with Casey, have NOT been allowed to see him.  But the rest of the family says they WANT Jean and Liberty to join them at Casey's bedside.
Is Lea Michele Dating a Male Prostitute?
LEA MICHELE has been quietly dating a guy named MATTHEW PAETZ for the last few months.  And there's a reason she's keeping the relationship quiet.  It's because Matthew is a MALE PROSTITUTE.  At least he WAS.          
Until recently, Matthew worked for a legal escort service called Cowboys 4 Angels, which is featured on the Showtime series "Gigolos".  He used to have a profile on the company's website, but it's hidden now.  
Matthew never appeared on the show, but lonely ladies were paying him $350 an hour, $6,000 for a weekend and $17,500 for a full week.
He met Lea on the set of her music video "On My Way".  And while Matthew entertained a client as recently as April, he's reportedly been on "hiatus" since he started dating Lea.

There's a Possibility of a New "Star Trek" Series on Netflix

The "Star Trek" TV franchise might get new life ONLINE.  Netflix wants the rights to create and produce a new "Trek" series all on their own, like how they do it with "House of Cards" and "Orange is the New Black".
There's no word how serious talks are, but it doesn't sound like they're too far along.  We also don't know at this point how the show will related to any of the previous series, or to the J.J. ABRAMS movies . . . if at all.
The last "Star Trek" TV series was "Enterprise", which never really caught on and was canceled in 2005, after four seasons.
Sean Astin Says He and Corey Feldman Are In if There's a "Goonies" Sequel
Director RICHARD DONNER recently revealed that a "Goonies" sequel is in the works.  It's still too early to tell if it'll actually happen, but if it does, we know at least two of the big stars would be down for a return.
SEAN ASTIN says, quote, "I hope it's true.  I certainly like the idea of doing it.  I don't know if I'd be in it or not.  If they really wanted us to be in it, I'm sure there would be some way to work it out."
He added, quote, "COREY FELDMAN and I are buddies.  Oh, he's fired up.  He's ready to go."
But Sean also said he's heard the movie will probably focus on the CHILDREN of the original gang.
Miley Cyrus May Be Feuding with Selena Gomez . . . Because She Held a Cutout of Selena While Performing "FU"
Is MILEY CYRUS igniting a beef with SELENA GOMEZ?  Maybe.
Earlier this week, Miley was performing in Milan, Italy, when a fan tossed a weird cutout of Selena onstage.  It happened when Miley was performing "FU", and she picked it up and carried it around during her performance.
After a few moments, Miley threw the cutout back into the crowd as she sang, quote, "I don't really have much to say, I was over it the second that I saw her name.  I got two letters for you, one of them's 'F' and the other one's 'U.'"
Miley hasn't commented . . . but since it doesn't seem like she planned on having the cutout, it could just be a coincidence.  Also, aside from holding the cutout, she didn't really address it, SING TO IT, or anything like that.
That being said, one report suggests that the fan didn't throw the cutout onstage, they were just holding it . . . and Miley "grabbed it" from them.  That would make it seem MORE intentional, but who knows.

Halle Berry Has to Pay Her Ex $16,000 a Month in Child Support
HALLE BERRY is on the hook for some SERIOUS child support.  A judge ordered her to pay 16-GRAND a month to her ex-boyfriend GABRIEL AUBRY.  They have 50-50 custody of their 6-year-old daughter Nahla.
She was also ordered to pay Aubry a lump sum of $115,000 for back support, plus $300,000 for his legal fees.

Tracy Morgan Is in Critical Condition After His Limo Bus Got Hit by a Walmart Truck
TRACY MORGAN is in intensive care, after his limo bus was hit by a Walmart truck on the New Jersey Turnpike at about 1:00 A.M. Saturday morning.  He had performed at a casino in Delaware earlier that night.
The accident also involved a second tractor-trailer, an SUV and two cars.  One person was killed, and Tracy is one of four people who were badly hurt.
JAMES MCNAIR is the victim who was killed in the crash.  He was in Tracy's vehicle, and was his longtime friend and comedy writer.  He was 62 . . . and also performed under the name "Uncle Jimmy Mack".
Yesterday, Tracy's rep said that Tracy was still in critical condition . . . but added that he was, quote, "more responsive today."  He also said Tracy had a number of injuries including a broken leg, a broken femur, and several broken ribs.
He's expected to be hospitalized for several weeks.
Tracy's ex-wife Sabina Morgan told the "New York Daily News", quote, "He's not in good shape.  I'm traumatized . . . It's like I'm in a nightmare."
Comedian Ardie Fuqua is also in critical condition, as is Tracy's assistant Jeffrey Millea.  Another comedian, Harris Stanton, was treated and released.
Some sources say the driver of the Walmart semi fell asleep at the wheel . . . didn't see traffic slowing in front of him until it was too late . . . and plowed into several vehicles.
The man was charged with one count of death by auto, and four counts of assault by auto.  He was released after posting $50,000 bail.
The limo's driver was not seriously hurt.  He told ABC News, quote, "I climbed around and heard Tracy screaming for help.  I climbed up on the body of the limo bus . . . but I couldn't reach them."
Someone Broke Into Sandra Bullock's House While She Was Home
On Saturday night, SANDRA BULLOCK picked up the Decade of Hotness award at the Spike TV "Guys' Choice Awards".  Then she went home and her weekend got a little scary.
A 39-year-old man entered Sandra's house early Sunday morning.  As far as we know, she didn't confront the guy.  Police were called . . . they arrived at the house at about 6:30 A.M. and arrested him.
There's no word what he was doing there, but my guess is he was NOT attempting to steal any "Speed 2" memorabilia. 
Jennifer Lopez Split Up With Her Boyfriend Casper Smart
JENNIFER LOPEZ and CASPER SMART have broken up, after about two and a half years together.  He's 27, she turns 45 next month.

The source adds, quote, "She will definitely still keep things civil and actually still loves him.  The hard part is the kids love him too. He has become a part of her family."  (Jennifer has 6-year-old twins with ex-husband Marc Anthony.)

A Lot of Celebrities Are Giving Justin Bieber a Pass for His Racist Videos . . . and Drake Bell Wonders Why
A lot of celebrities say JUSTIN BIEBER deserves a pass for the racist stuff he said when he was a kid . . . although they don't condone it.
USHER, who signed Justin when he was 13, says, quote, "Do I turn my head in shame based off of what I see, what I know?  Nah, I don't, because it's all part of life's process.  Am I in it with him?  Yeah."
That being said, some elements of Justin's downfall over the past year or so DO concern him.  He says, quote, "I hate some of the things I hear.  Is it all true?  I don't know.  But I will tell you this:  Success comes with a price."
RUSSELL BRAND released a video saying Justin deserves a break because, quote, "He's a child."
On "The View", WHOOPI GOLDBERG said she chalked it up to "youthful ignorance," and the fact that he's Canadian.  Some Canadians took offense to this so Whoopi went on Twitter to explain saying "Canadians, I was saying the N word is not something that lived in Canada the way it lived here, part of American history."
On the flip side, DRAKE BELL (Of Nickelodeon's "Drake & Josh" fame) who's been a very outspoken critic of Justin . . . compared him to DONALD STERLING.  He Tweeted, quote, "Sterling [is] caught saying racist things and [it] ruins career . . . Justin gets caught, and the excuse 'He doesn't know any better' is used."
He deleted that tweet for some reason, but he later followed it up with the Tweet, quote, "If Justin Bieber didn't understand the racist jokes he spewed, why was he laughing at the punch line?  You don't laugh if you don't understand."
AL SHARPTON said the videos are "troubling" . . . and that this should be a teachable moment, for why, quote, "None of us can use the N-word." 
Justin Has Issued an Apology for the Second Racist Video
JUSTIN BIEBER has issued an apology for the second racist video . . . and it's pretty much the same as his first one.  Except, in this one he took a page out of JONAH HILL'S book . . . with a "use me as an example of what not to do" bit.
He says, quote, "Facing my mistakes from years ago has been one of the hardest things I've ever dealt with.  But I feel now that I need to take responsibility for those mistakes and not let them linger.
"I just hope that the next 14-year-old kid who doesn't understand the power of these words does not make the same mistakes I made years ago.  At the end of the day, I just need to step up and own what I did."
Leonardo DiCaprio Refused to Be Filmed for "Keeping Up with the Kardashians"
Last Sunday, BRUCE and BRODY JENNER were at a club in L.A., doing some filming for "Keeping Up with the Kardashians".  It was some dude's birthday, and Brody was DJing the party.
LEONARDO DICAPRIO was there . . . but he didn't want ANY part of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians".
A so-called "source" says, quote, "The organizers know how Leo feels about cameras, so they gave him a heads up.  He didn't want to be filmed for the show.  He wouldn't have wanted to be filmed for anything, but especially not that one."

The Second Video of Justin Bieber Being Racist Is Out
As expected, there's another video of a young JUSTIN BIEBER saying the N-word.  This time, he changes the lyrics of his song "One Less Lonely Girl" to "One Less Lonely [N-word]".
The 28-second clip shows Justin gleefully singing, "One less lonely [N-word], one less lonely [N-word] . . . if I kill you, I'll be part of the KKK, then there will be one less lonely [N-word]."
TMZ says Justin was 14 at the time . . . and that Justin's handlers intentionally allowed it to surface online, because he wants to "own up to what he did." 
This comes just days after Justin apologized for another video, where he tells a racist joke that includes the N-word.  His excuse was basically that he was just a kid at the time, and has since learned how much certain words can hurt.
Supposedly, the people who had the videos have tried to extort Justin over the years, but the shakedown never worked.  It sounds like there aren't any MORE of these videos . . . but at this point, who knows.
Justin hasn't directly commented on the second racist video . . . but he did post a photo of some Bible passages on Instagram.  There are three verses . . . two from the book of John and one from Isaiah . . . and all of them deal with forgiveness and salvation for your sins.  
Melissa McCarthy Couldn't Get Anyone to Make Her an Oscar Dress
MELISSA MCCARTHY says she was inspired to start a plus-size clothing line because she had trouble finding a designer who'd make her an Oscar dress.
It inspired her to start her own plus-size clothing line.  She tells "Redbook" magazine, quote, "When I go shopping, most of the time I'm disappointed.
"Two Oscars ago, I couldn't find anybody to do a dress for me.  I asked five or six designers . . . very high-level ones who make lots of dresses for people . . . and they all said no."
In case you care, the designer who finally took the job was Daniela Kurrle . . . And she's made several dresses for Melissa since.
Charlize Theron Left a $96 Tip on a $4 Yogurt
CHARLIZE THERON went into a Pinkberry yogurt shop in Hollywood WITHOUT ANY MONEY, and ordered a chocolate hazelnut with chocolate shavings.  And she told the woman behind the counter she'd be back to pay the $3.75 tab.
Well, she DID come back, driven by her boyfriend SEAN PENN.  She gave the woman a HUNDRED-DOLLAR BILL, and told her to keep the change.  That's a $96.25 tip.

Chris Brown is Out of Jail
CHRIS BROWN was sprung from the L.A. County Jail yesterday morning at 12:01 A.M.  Brown had been in custody since mid-March, when he allegedly violated his probation by getting into a scuffle in Washington, D.C.
On May 9th, a judge sentenced Brown to a year in jail, but he got credit for 234 days already served behind bars and in court-ordered rehab.  That left him with 131 days, so obviously, this is a pretty early release.  There's no word why, but it's not uncommon.
After he got sprung, Brown Tweeted, quote, "Humbled and Blessed . . . Back to the Music and the Fans . . . Thank you GOD."
Meanwhile, Brown's probation was extended until January of 2015.  He has to submit to drug testing at least three times a week and get psychiatric counseling and outpatient therapy twice a week.
Basically, Chris is STILL on probation from when he beat up RIHANNA in 2009, because he keeps violating it and getting it extended.  If he keeps his nose clean until January of 2015, he will have spent SIX YEARS on probation.
Did Kanye West Give Kim Kardashian a Naked Portrait of Herself as a Wedding Gift?
I'm not sure how this is a gift for KIM KARDASHIAN exactly, but as a wedding present, KANYE WEST got her a nude painting of herself.
In the picture, Kim is wearing only a G-string and Louboutin heels.  It's from behind, so you don't see any naughty bits, but it's still not exactly family-friendly. 
Kanye reportedly commissioned a "street artist" who goes by the name of "Bambi" to paint something, quote, "regal but typically Kim."  The painting is titled, "Perfect [B-word]."  Yep, regal and classy. 
Kanye plans to hang it in their bedroom.

The "Journalist" Who Accosted Brad Pitt on the Red Carpet Was Trying to "Bury His Face in Brad's Crotch"
BRAD PITT says the Ukrainian "journalist" who accosted him on the red carpet last week did not intentionally strike him . . . but he says HE hit the guy because, quote, "The nutter was trying to bury his face in my crotch."
Brad says, quote, "Out the corner of my eye I saw someone stage-diving over the barrier at me.  I took a step back, [and] this guy had latched onto my lapels.
"So I cracked him twice in the back of the head . . . not too hard . . . but enough to get his attention, because he did let go.  I think he was then just grabbing for a hand hold because the guys were on him, and he reached up and caught my glasses."
So, maybe he was trying to HUG Brad's crotch, just like he did to LEONARDO DICAPRIO earlier this year.  He also tried to kiss WILL SMITH back in 2012.  
Brad goes on, quote, "I don't mind an exhibitionist, but he's going to spoil it for the fans who have waited up all night for an autograph or a selfie, because it will make people more wary to approach a crowd.
"And . . . if he tries to look up a woman's dress again, he's going to get stomped."  He's talking about how this same guy put his head under AMERICA FERRERA'S dress at the Cannes film festival a couple weeks ago.
The Beastie Boys Turned Down a Lot of Money to Keep Arnold Schwarzenegger from Using "Sabotage" in His Latest Movie
Earlier this year, ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER starred in a movie called "Sabotage" . . . and at one point, THE BEASTIE BOYS were offered "a lot of money" to let the movie use their song of the same name.
But the Beastie Boys turned it down . . . for the same reason they didn't want the toy company GoldieBlox to use their song "Girls" last year:  They don't let their music get used in advertisements.
MIKE D says, quote, "It felt like too much of an endorsement . . . [and] we weren't fans of Mr. Schwarzenegger's recent . . . work."  (And apparently, a lot of people agree.  The movie BOMBED at the box office.)
Mike admits that they COULD use the money, because they haven't been able to tour or release new music since the death of ADAM "MCA" YAUCH in 2012.
But they also want to adhere to MCA's will, which requested that his music and "artistic property" NOT be used for advertising purposes after his death.
Keith Urban Ignores the Tabloid Lies About His Marriage to Nicole Kidman
"Rolling Stone" asked KEITH URBAN how he deals with the tabloids always fabricating crap about his marriage to NICOLE KIDMAN.  He deals with it by ignoring it.
He says, quote, "The people who really know us are most aghast by the whole thing and going, 'How do you not want to defend that?'  I'm like, 'It's pointless.'  Our life will be our way of defending it."
He got quite mushy when he started talking about his love for her saying, quote, "I have a wife who is just from another planet.  She is so celestial.  I say that I was born into her.  That is the best way I can describe how I feel about her and us."
Yes, he said, "born INTO her."  Even the interviewer had to ask what that means . . . so Keith clarified.  But not really.  He said, quote, "It means that I felt like I was just sitting dormant, and she came along and I came to life.
"I was born into her, so who I am now was waiting the whole time."

KJ's Hollywood Dirt for 6/2/2014
Casey Kasem's Wife Threw Raw Hamburger Meat at His Daughter As He Was Taken Away in an Ambulance
INSANITY erupted at the Washington state home where CASEY KASEM'S wife JEAN has been keeping him since last month, when she moved him out of California without telling his kids.
It all started at a hearing on Friday, when a judge ruled that Casey's daughter KERRI, from his first marriage, be allowed to visit him and have him evaluated by a doctor and hospitalized, if necessary.
Jean responded by holding a press conference at which she played cell phone audio of Casey MOANING.  She claimed it was because he was upset about the court ruling.
Casey is 82 and suffering from advanced Parkinson's disease and a form of dementia.  So it's probably impossible to say WHY he was moaning, if the audio was even legit in the first place.
Yesterday, Kerri showed up at the house with an ambulance to take Casey to the hospital.  She said he had bed sores and infections in his bladder and lungs.
But the ambulance wasn't allowed in.  So 911 was called, and another ambulance came with a fire truck.  In the ensuing chaos, Jean threw a POUND OF RAW HAMBURGER at Kerri.  And she did it for BIBLICAL reasons.
She said, quote, "In the name of King David, I threw a piece of raw meat into the street in exchange for my husband to the wild rabid dogs."  
Melissa Etheridge Got Gay Married Yesterday
MELISSA ETHERIDGE got MARRIED at the San Ysidro Ranch in California on Saturday.  The lucky girl is LINDA WALLEM, a TV producer whose credits include "That '70s Show" and "Nurse Jackie".  She and Melissa are both 53.
Guests included Jane Lynch, Rosie O'Donnell, Chelsea Handler, Whitney Cummings, Peter Facinelli and Australian singer Sia.
Melissa sang a brand new song for Linda, and after the ceremony she Tweeted a wedding photo, along with the caption, quote, "True love . . . so blessed.  "By the power invested in me by the state of California . . ." Thanks."
All four of Etheridge's children participated in the wedding.  She has a 17-year-old daughter and a 15-year-old son with former partner Julie Cypher . . . and 7-year-old twin boys with ex Tammy Lynn Michaels.
Technically this is Melissa's first marriage, although she and Michaels did have a commitment ceremony.  She and her new "wife" have been dating since 2010.
Adam Carolla Says Rich People Are Better Than Poor People
ADAM CAROLLA is known for his strong opinions but this one might not sit well with some of his fans.  In an interview with "The Daily Caller", he says rich people are better than poor people.  He doesn't just insinuate it . . . he says it loud and clear.
He says, quote, "[Rich people] are better than poor people.  They just are.  I've hung around with plenty of poor people, now I've hung out with rich people.  They work harder, generally.  More focused.
"The folks I grew up with, the poor people I grew up with, fairly lethargic, did a lot of complaining, smoked a little too much, drank a little too much, blamed everyone but themselves a little too much."  
"Maleficent" Is Angelina Jolie's Best Box Office Debut Ever
"Maleficent" had a fantastic opening weekend, earning $70 million in its first three days.  Believe it or not, that's the best box office debut of ANGELINA JOLIE'S career.  Her previous best was "Kung Fu Panda", which made $60.2 million.   
SETH MACFARLANE wasn't as fortunate with "A Million Ways to Die in the West".  It debuted in 3rd place with just over $17 million . . . which is just one fourth of what "Maleficent" made.
Here are this week's Top 5 movies:
1.  (NEW)  "Maleficent", $70 million. 
2.  "X-Men: Days of Future Past", $32.6  million.  Up to $162 million in its 2nd week.
3.  (NEW)  "A Million Ways to Die in the West", $17.1 million.
4.  "Godzilla", $12.2 million.  Up to $175 million in its 3rd week. 
5.  "Blended", $8.4 million.  Up to $29.6 million in its 2nd week.
"The Arsenio Hall Show" Was Canceled After Just One Season . . . Even Though Jay Leno Once Said It Was Being Renewed
ARSENIO HALL'S new show has been canceled after just one season . . . despite the fact that JAY LENO made a special appearance on his show back in February, to announce that the show had been picked up for a second season.
At the time, Arsenio asked if Jay would do some comedy on his show, and Jay joked, quote, "Actually, on the second season, I'm going to be hosting.  They didn't tell you that part?"
It's unclear what happened . . . but apparently, the studio had a change of heart.  The final episode aired on May 21st.  "The Arsenio Hall Show" was a revival of his previous show, which ran for five seasons before being canceled in 1994.
