KJ's Hollywood Dirt for 10/20/2014

Was Justin Bieber Scolded for Kicking a Ball Around the Vatican

Word has it JUSTIN BIEBER was "reprimanded" for kicking a SOCCER BALL around the Vatican recently.

Justin reportedly shelled out over $25,000 for a private tour of Vatican City . . . but apparently, he got bored just walking around inside old buildings, so he had to kick the ball around in the halls. The staff was NOT amused . . . and he was, quote, "very strongly told off."

Justin hasn't commented, and probably won't. However, he did post a photo on Instagram a week ago, of him at the Vatican . . . with his soccer ball.

David Letterman's Cue Card Guy Was Fired After He Attacked One of His Writers

DAVID LETTERMAN's longtime cue card guy was FIRED after he put his hands on "Late Show" writer BILL SCHEFT a little over a week ago.

69-year-old TONY MENDEZ says Scheft has been a passive-aggressive A-HOLE to him for years, and his temper finally got the best of him.

He says, quote, "I just grabbed him by the shirt. He was very surprised. He didn't say a word. He was cowering, his eyes were real big, he probably peed a little bit on his pants."

The New York Post says Mendez was fired on the spot, but he doesn't blame Letterman. He says it was CBS' call to let him go. And he adds, quote, "Dave is the best, the most generous boss I have ever had. Dave would never do anything to harm me."

He added that the show offered to pay his salary and health insurance until Letterman steps down as host next year. Mendez had been with Letterman since 1993.

Is Bruce Jenner Hooking Up With Kris Jenner's Best Friend?

KRIS JENNER is reportedly FREAKING, because BRUCE JENNER is having relations with her best friend and former assistant, Ronda Kimihara.

They were spotted going to dinner and an ELTON JOHN concert in L.A. earlier this month, and a source says Kris is, quote, "torn apart and angry," and she's CRYING EVERY NIGHT.

But E! Online that they're NOT dating. Their families have been close for DECADES, so they're just good friends. Of course, E! is Kardashian media headquarters, so they might just be trying to spin this.

KJ's Hollywood Dirt for 10/10/2014

Katy Perry Will Do the Super Bowl Halftime Show

KATY PERRY has been chosen to perform during the 2015 Super Bowl Halftime Show. At least that's what several media outlets are reporting, including "Billboard" and the "New York Post".

She was recently announced as a finalist for the gig, along with COLDPLAY and RIHANNA. Super Bowl 49 goes down February 1st on NBC.

What's kind of funny about selecting Katy Perry is that there's been talk that the NFL wants artists to PAY for the privilege of doing the Halftime show, since they get such massive exposure.

But Katy was on ESPN's "College Game Day" last Saturday, and she admitted there were negotiations. And she said, quote, "I have let them know that I'm not the kind of girl who would pay to play the Super Bowl."

Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling Named Their Daughter Esmerelda Amada

We finally have some details on EVA MENDES and RYAN GOSLING's new daughter.

She was born at 10:22 A.M. on September 12th, and her name is Esmerelda Amada Gosling.

Jennifer Garner is NOT pregnant but She DOES Have a Baby Bump

After months of speculation about her pregnancy, Jennifer Garner proudly defended her "baby bump" on the The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday.

The actress said that her rounded tummy is thanks to having her and Ben Affleck's three children, Violet, eight, Seraphina, five and two-year-old Samuel, and isn't going anywhere.

"I am not pregnant, but I have had three kids and there is a bump," said the 42-year-old.

"From now on, ladies, I will have a bump, and it will be my baby bump. It's not going anywhere," she continued. "Its name is Violet, Sam and Sera."

Jennifer was the subject of numerous rumours that she and Ben were extending their adorable brood after she was spotted wearing a series of loose-fitting tops while out and about.

Amanda Bynes Was Caught Shoplifting . . . Twice in the Same Day?

On Wednesday, AMANDA BYNES was caught shoplifting a hat from Barneys in New York City. She claimed it was all a misunderstanding. But she was also caught stealing something from another store, just AN HOUR before.

TMZ says employees at Pookie & Sebastian began following Amanda around the store because she was acting suspicious. They did not recognize her . . . they just thought she was a, quote, "half-naked, homeless crack-head."

She supposedly tried to bolt with a shirt stuffed between her arms. When an employee stopped her and asked if she was going to pay, she said, quote, "Do I really have to buy this?"

Obviously, the answer was YES. So, Amanda pulled out a credit card and paid $128 for the shirt.

Anne Hathaway Says She Felt "Punched in the Gut" By All the Haters

In 2013, the world turned against ANNE HATHAWAY. She was supposed to be one of the darlings of award season, thanks to "Les Miserables", but for some reason, the HATERS were piling up.

She tells "Harper's Bazaar" that she was Googling herself for a Funny Or Die project when she saw an article titled "Why Does Everyone Hate Anne Hathaway?" And that's when it really hit her.

She says, quote, "[I felt like I was] punched in the gut. Shocked and slapped and embarrassed. Even now I can feel the shame . . . I was in crisis."

But she adds, quote, "Now I'd be fine. I really would be. I'd let it roll off my back, but at the time I was still partly Fantine [from'Les Mis']. I was still identifying with being a victim."

New Movies This Weekend

1. "Dracula Untold" (PG-13)

Dominic Cooper from HBO's "The Wire" is the enemy sultan, and Vlad's son is played by one of the Stark boys from "Game of Thrones". Don't get too excited though, it's the most forgettable of the Stark children . . . Rickon Stark.

KJ's Hollywood Dirt for 10/1/2014

Ben Affleck Shows Wiener in "Gone Girl"

"Gone Girl" opens Friday, and if you weren't already planning to see it, maybe I can sweeten the pot: This film will give you your first glimpse of BEN AFFLECK'S PENIS.

He tells MTV News, quote, "It's ironic because [director David Fincher] said to me from the beginning, this is a warts and all movie. It can have no vanity. You have to see the naked underbelly of this character."

He adds, quote, "There is some very brief nudity . . . The penis is in there! It's IMAX penis! You've gotta pay fifteen bucks to see it in 3D . . . it looks better in 3D. You should know it was a very cold set."

Tracy Morgan Responds to Walmart's Ignorant Claims

TRACY MORGAN is fighting back against Walmart for claiming he's responsible for his own injuries because he wasn't wearing a seatbelt when one of their trucks plowed into him.

He says, quote, "After I heard what Walmart said in court I felt I had to speak out. I can't believe Walmart is blaming me for an accident that they caused. My friends and I were doing nothing wrong.

"I want to thank my fans for sticking with me during this difficult time. I love you all. I'm fighting hard every day to get back." One of Tracy's friends was killed in the accident. He and several others were injured. They're suing Walmart.

Michael Phelps Is Apologizing for Drinking and Driving . . . Again

MICHAEL PHELPS is a world-class swimmer . . . and unfortunately, he's also getting pretty good at apologizing for DUI arrests.

According to the "Baltimore Sun", Michael was pulled over late Monday night, when a cop clocked him doing 84 in a 45 mile-per-hour zone. That's nearly twice the speed limit . . . and according to reports, his blood alcohol content was also at nearly twice the legal limit.

Yesterday, Michael apologized, Tweeting, quote, "[I was] charged with DUI, excessive speeding and crossing double lane lines. I understand the severity of my actions and take full responsibility.

"I know these words may not mean much right now but I am deeply sorry to everyone I have let down."

One of the reasons his words may not mean much is that this is his second DUI arrest. He was also busted back in 2004, when he was 19. He also apologized that time, and said he "took responsibility" for his actions.

Michael's Olympic teammate RYAN LOCHTE took this opportunity to take a few jabs at him. He said, quote, "I'm not concerned . . . he just makes dumb decisions. He has so much money to get a driver . . .

"I even have a driver. Just stinks for the sport of swimming. But he will become smarter from this. Luckily he did not hurt himself or someone else."

The "Rush Hour" Movies Are Being Turned Into a TV Show

The "Rush Hour" movies are being turned into a TV show. It'll be an hour-long action comedy with a plot similar to the movies: A by-the-book foreign police officer being forced to work with a cocky American cop.

There's no indication JACKIE CHAN and CHRIS TUCKER will be involved, but Brett Ratner is onboard as an executive producer . . . he directed the movies.

For what it's worth, just last month Jackie Chan said he'd be interested in doing a fourth "Rush Hour" movie . . . even though there wasn't anything in the works. As for the show, it's still early in development . . . and no network is attached yet.

The Tom Hanks Movie "Big" Is Being Turned Into a TV Show

If the 1988 TOM HANKS movie "Big" totally left you YEARNING for more, here's good news: Fox is turning it into a TV show.

There aren't any other details yet . . . but Fox seems pretty high on the idea, so there's a good chance it'll end up vying for a spot on their schedule next year. And there's no talk that Tom Hanks would be involved.

George Clooney Got Married This Weekend But It's Not Official YET


It finally happened.  GEORGE CLOONEY and AMAL ALAMUDDIN got married Saturday night in Venice, Italy.  Although technically there's still time for George to back out.  They're making it official with a civil ceremony today.



There were about 100 guests at Saturday's ceremony at the Aman Canal Grande Hotel . . . including Matt DamonBonoJohn Krasinski and his wife Emily BluntCindy Crawford and her husband Rande GerberEllen Barkin"Vogue" editor Anna Wintour and BILL MURRAY.



Gerber was reportedly the best man, and for some reason Julia Roberts wasn't able to attend.



A source says George and Amal held hands as they recited vows they wrote themselves.



After the ceremony, guests celebrated until well into the morning.  The menu included lobster, sea bass, beef, and risotto.  There's no confirmation on the rumor we heard last week that LANA DEL REY was going to sing.



But at one point, Amal's father took the microphone and put the pressure on them to start producing GRANDCHILDREN.  George may be 53, but Amal is only 36 . . . so they can both do the job required of them to reproduce. 



There aren't any photos yet, but the paparazzi seemed to be camped out along Venice's famous canals, as Clooney, Amal and their guests were zipped from place to place all weekend in water taxis.   



They were also spotted on Sunday wearing their wedding rings.



This is Amal's first marriage, but Clooney's second.  He was married to actress TALIA BALSAM from 1989 to 1993.




Jennifer Lopez and Leah Remini Got Rear-Ended by a Drunk Driver


JENNIFER LOPEZ and LEAH REMINI were rear-ended by a drunk driver in a pickup truck Saturday when they went out for lunch with their kids.  Thankfully, they are all okay.



Leah was driving J-Lo's car on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu when they were hit at a red light.  The drunk took off, but they called 911 and he was caught.



J-Lo posted a selfie of her and Leah in the car, along with the caption, quote, "Sitting at a light, Riding high right before some drunk fool rear ended us in my new whip!!!  Thank god everyone ok!!!"



Then she went INSANE with hashtags, including "don't drink and drive", "cursed that fool out" and "the Bronx came out."



She also wrote, "#dontmesswithmycocnuts.  She was referring to the kids, and meant to say COCONUTS.



And we know this because earlier in the day, she posted a picture of her 6-year-old twins Max and Emme in the backseat with Leah's 10-year-old daughter Sofia . . . and one of the hashtags was "coconuts".





Denzel Washington's "The Equalizer" Was #1 at the Box Office


"The Equalizer" had a solid opening weekend at the box office, easily taking the #1 spot with $35 million.  That's the fourth biggest September debut of all time . . . and the third best opening of DENZEL WASHINGTON'S career. 



(Denzel's two best opening weekends were from "American Gangster" and "Safe House" . . . which opened with $56 million and $54 million, respectively.)



The stop-motion animated movie "The Boxtrolls" was the weekend's other wide release.  It made $17.3 million in 3rd place.  Here are this week's Top 5 movies:

It Might NOT Be Over for John Mellencamp And Meg Ryan


JOHN MELLENCAMP had nothing but nice things to say about his ex-girlfriend MEG RYAN and hinted the couple may not be done just yet. 


John told the Associated Press "I'm very happy with the time I've spent with Meg Ryan.  She's a beautiful girl and I know that I will never, ever, ever be with a funnier girl than her. Not gonna happen. I'm grateful for the three-and-a-half years we've been together," he added. 


Despite calling it quits over the summer,  Mellencamp hinted that things might not be done entirely.  "Nothing's over," he said, when asked about their current status. "Nothing's over. I never say die for anything. Do you ever quit on anything?"

In today's Hollywood Dirt, a man tries to tackle Kim Kardashian, Britney Spears' says she'll be writing some "I hate men" songs for her next album plus the few details we know about George Clooney getting married this weekend and more!



The Smiley Morning Show gives you the Hollywood Dirt each morning on 99.5 WZPL but if you miss it or want to share a story, you can always find it here too plus some stories we didn't get to on the air!



Just 'Like' my page while you're here to make sure you get the daily Dirt updates!







That Ukrainian Red Carpet Crasher Tried to Tackle Kim Kardashian


A man nearly TACKLED KIM KARDASHIAN as she, KANYE WEST and KRIS JENNER were getting out of a limo to attend a fashion show in Paris yesterday.   


Not surprisingly, it was Ukrainian "journalist" Vitalii Sediuk . . . the guy who's become infamous for his red carpet pranks.  He apparently dove at Kim's legs as she was getting out of the limo, almost taking her down.



But there were a ton of people crowded around to hold her up, and to pull this guy off her.



We first heard about Vitalii in 2012, when he tried to kiss WILL SMITH on the mouth and got a backhand slap for his efforts.



Earlier this year, he ambushed both BRADLEY COOPER and LEONARDO DICAPRIO at separate events, getting down on his knees and hugging both men around the crotch.  


At the Cannes Film Festival in March, he climbed under AMERICA FERRERA's dress.  And a few weeks later he attacked BRAD PITT at the premiere of "Maleficent" and broke his glasses. 


He even got onstage at the Grammys somehow and almost crashed one of ADELE's acceptance speeches.



He actually issued a statement after the Kardashian incident saying, quote, "I hope Kim is okay and won't be mad at me as I didn't mean any harm.  Kanye is one lucky man as Kim is a goddess!"



He also said he's doing it as a PROTEST, because he's BANNED from entering the U.S.




George Clooney is Getting Married in Venice This Weekend


The details are still pretty much under wraps, but GEORGE CLOONEY and AMAL ALAMUDDIN are getting married in Venice this weekend.


George has commandeered the Hotel Cipriani, where guests should begin arriving today.  This is expected to be a three-day celebration, with the actual wedding taking place tomorrow night.


It'll be a black-tie affair, with only about 60 guests, including BonoEllen BarkinSandra Bullock and her son Louis, Matt Damon and his wife, Julia Roberts and her husband, Cindy Crawford and her husband Rande Gerber . . . 


And, of course, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.  There are reports that Brad will be the best man.  Oh, and Lana Del Rey is going to sing.




Britney Spears' Next Album Is Apparently About Her Conflicted Feelings Toward Men


BRITNEY SPEARS broke up with her boyfriend David Lucado last month . . . supposedly because he cheated on her.  So, is Britney going to go the TAYLOR SWIFT route and trash him on her next album?  Maybe.



She says, quote, "I think you take your experiences that you go through and definitely put it into your work.  So, I'm gonna have a lot of 'I hate men' songs, and then a lot of 'I love men' songs.  So, it kinda goes both ways."




Justin Bieber Is Voicing the "Knight Rider" Car KITT in an Upcoming David Hasselhoff Comedy


Can you imagine JUSTIN BIEBER providing the voice for KITT . . . the talking car from "Knight Rider"?  Well, it's happening.



DAVID HASSELHOFF says he asked Justin to do it as a favor, for an upcoming movie called "Killing Hasselhoff", which is a comedy about a guy who tries to win a celebrity death pool by hiring a hit man to kill The Hoff.



The Hoff says, quote, "I think he's a cool kid, and he gets a bad rap.  He's a good guy and I like his music, I've known him for five years."



Justin was spotted with The Hoff filming scenes for the movie, so he's also appearing in the movie . . . although there aren't any further specifics on that.



WILLIAM DANIELS was the voice of KITT on the original "Knight Rider".  He's the guy who played Mr. Feeny on "Boy Meets World".



"Hangover" star KEN JEONG and comedian JIM JEFFERIES are also in the movie, and have confirmed that they worked with Justin, and that he was great.




New Movies: Denzel's "The Equalizer" and the Animated Flick "The Boxtrolls" Are in Theaters


1.  "The Equalizer"  (R) 



Denzel Washington plays a retired special ops agent who's just trying to lead a quiet life and put his past behind him, until his friends become the victims of violent crimes.  



One of them is Chloe Grace Moretz, a young prostitute who strikes up an innocent friendship with him at the diner where he spends his nights reading.  When she doesn't show up one night, Denzel decides to get payback on the guys who put her in the hospital.  And things escalate quickly after he finds out that the pimp and his thugs are all in the Russian mob.


The movie's a violent remake of the 1985 TV series that starred an old white guy named Edward Woodward.  It's directed by Antoine Fuqua, who previously teamed up with Denzel on "Training Day".




2.  "The Boxtrolls"  (PG)  Trailer


 A stop-motion animated movie about an orphaned boy named Eggs, who's trying to save the creatures that raised him from an evil exterminator played by Ben Kingsley.  "Game of Thrones" fans might recognize the kid's voice.  The actor's real name isIsaac Hempstead Wright, but you'd know him as psychic crippled orphan Bran Stark.


It's made by the same people who did the Dakota Fanning movie "Coraline".  Her little sister Elle Fanning is in this one as a human girl helping Eggs save the boxtrolls.
