Could Katie Couric Eventually Replace Barbara Walters on "The View"?
There's some talk on the World Wide Web of Misinformation that KATIE COURIC may replace BARBARA WALTERS on "The View" after Barbara retires next year.
The "New York Daily News" says it's "likely" that Katie's talk show will be CANCELED sometime this winter, because it's struggling in the ratings. On top of that, Katie isn't happy with the show's, quote, "gossipy" direction.
So-called "sources" say Katie might work out better on "The View" . . . because viewers like her more with co-hosts than they do when she's on her own . . . and, quote, "Even [viewers] not liking her can work in the show's favor and her favor."
However, Katie shot the rumor down on Twitter . . . saying, quote, "Wow! Appreciate the interest but . . . completely not true. Crazy how these things get repeated. Guess it's just the world we live in!"
Is Justin Bieber Playing Robin in the "Batman vs. Superman" Movie . . . Or Is It All Just a Gag?
It looks like JUSTIN BIEBER is having a little fun at the expense of comic book fans.
The other day, he posted a picture of the SUPPOSED script for the "Batman vs. Superman" movie. And it had his name stamped across the front of it.
Obviously, he's trying to imply that he's going to be IN THE MOVIE. And people have already begun speculating that he could be playing ROBIN. (Even though no one has even suggested that Robin will be part of the movie.)
But it sounds like this might just be part of a PRANK . . . because he also Tweeted, quote, "Off to do something funny or...die :)" (So hopefully this is all just hype for a parody video he's doing with FunnyOrDie.com
Speaking of Justin, he was one of tons of celebrities who hit up the FLOYD MAYWEATHER fight in Vegas on Saturday. But he and LIL WAYNE actually got to walk Floyd to the ring.
