David Letterman Is Retiring in 2015
DAVID LETTERMAN announced that he's retiring next year on "The Late Show" last night.
Dave began by talking about how he will turn 67 on April 12th . . . and how he's been hosting a late night show since he was 34. He explained that he's done 4,014 shows on CBS, after doing 1,810 shows on NBC.
He went on for a few minutes, before saying that earlier in the day, he called the owner of CBS and let him know that he's RETIRING. That's when PAUL SHAFFER joked, quote, "You actually did this? Do I have a minute to call my accountant?"
David joked, quote. "What this means now, is that Paul and I can be married."
There's no timetable for his last day yet. David just said, quote, "It'll be, I think, at least a year or so, but sometime in the not too distant future. [In] 2015 for the love of God, in fact, Paul and I will be wrapping things up and taking a hike."
So Who Will Replace David Letterman?
Obviously, this is complete conjecture at this point, but here are some of the names we saw:
TVLine.com suggests: Stephen Colbert, Chelsea Handler, Jon Stewart, Craig Ferguson, Whoopi Goldberg, Neil Patrick Harris, Tina Fey, Kevin Hart, Louis C.K., Jerry Seinfeld, Jimmy Kimmel, Conan O'Brien and Jay Leno. (???)
The "New York Post" repeats some of those names, but also tossed a few new ones into the ring: Chris Rock and Aisha Tyler. Vulture.com's list includes Amy Schumer, who currently has her own show on Comedy Central.
Jezebel.com has a list of 10 possible FEMALE replacements, including Joan Rivers, Wanda Sykes, Ellen DeGeneres, Maya Rudolph and Amy Poehler WITH Tina Fey.
An "Entertainment Weekly" poll includes Andy Cohen and Ryan Seacrest . . . and a round-up on Time.com includes: Oprah and Tim Tebow. (???)
Are Bruce and Kris Jenner Together Again . . . Or Is Bruce Becoming a Woman and Changing His Name to Bridget?
BRUCE and KRIS JENNER were holding hands at Los Angeles International Airport yesterday, after they returned from their family vacation in Thailand. They were also wearing their wedding rings.
And when a paparazzi scumbag said, quote, "Look at you guys together!" . . . Bruce replied, quote, "We've BEEN together." (Here's video and pictures.)
But the "Star" tabloid still says Bruce is considering gender reassignment surgery . . . and wants to change his name to BRIDGET. (???)
Is Kelly Osbourne in Food Rehab?
Rumor has it KELLY OSBOURNE is in FOOD rehab.
The site Popcrush.com claims Kelly sought help after gaining 20 pounds in the aftermath of her break up with her former fiancé Matthew Mosshart.
Matthew is a vegan chef . . . and Kelly has said he's responsible for her healthy eating habits over the past three years. But when they split four months ago, Kelly allegedly thought SCREW IT . . . and binged on a ton of junk food.
Naturally, this could all be an exaggeration. "Now" magazine claims Kelly considers the help she's getting a, quote, "cleanse" . . . so it might just be more of a diet than "rehab." They also say she's signed up for Yoga and Pilates classes.
But Kelly says all of this is BOGUS. She Tweeted, quote, "When did I all of a sudden gain 20 pounds? I just asked my ass, and she can't seem to remember either! #MustBeASlowNewsWeek! . . . I have not gained 20 pounds."

"Captain America: The Winter Soldier" is Out Today
Captain America and the Black Widow investigate an attack on S.H.I.E.L.D., and then enlist the help of a superhero called the Falcon after the agency is compromised.
Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, and Cobie Smulders from "How I Met Your Mother" are all back from "The Avengers".
If you're not a comic book nerd, the Winter Soldier isn't Captain America, it's the bad guy.
Robert Redford is a high-ranking S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, Anthony Mackie is the Falcon, and Stan Lee has a cameo as the night watchman at the Smithsonian. As usual, you'll want to stick around through the credits for two additional scenes.
