Mark-Paul Gosselaar Is Engaged, And It Isn’t To Kelly Kapowski

Sorry 90s TV fans, but it looks like Zach Morris is off the market. Yes, Mark-Paul Gosselaar is engaged, and amazingly/sadly it isn’t to Kelly Kapowski. The ink has barely dried on his May divorce from Lisa Ann Russell, but Mark has popped the question to ad exec Catriona McGinn over the weekend. “He couldn’t wait to propose,” his friend Neil Lane told People. Neil also designed the custom 5 carat cushion-cut diamond engagement ring. “He was so excited to have found the woman of his dreams.” We’re so excited! And we just can’t hide it! No wedding date has been set yet, but we sure hope they hold the reception at The Max. You can’t mess with tradition.

The Situation Wants To Be The Next De Niro. Or The Rock

Not content with merely being a a stomach flashing reality tycoon, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino wants a chance to flex his acting muscles, which he seems to think are as big as his biceps. In fact, he wants to follow in the footsteps of great thespians like Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Leonardo DiCaprio…and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Let’s aim for The Rock and see what happens, Mike. To be fair, he does have some similarities with this list of masters. He shares the Italian heritage with Rob, Al and Leo, and both The Sitch and The Rock are known for being shirtless. Plus they both have “The” in their names. He’ll be a natural!

He recently opened up to In Touch Online about his next career move. “Obviously, I look up to De Niro and Pacino, and for someone who’s closer in age Leo [DiCaprio] — I’d eventually like to make great movies someday,” told “But I’m trying to go in a trajectory similar to ‘The Rock,’ [Dwayne Johnson], who took his bold personality and phrases from the WWE into film.”  We’re not sure if you can jump from the Rock track to the De Niro track, but Mike’s sure gonna try! He’s making his acting debut with a cameo in the upcoming Three Stooges remake. Maybe someday he’ll be trading those vodka bottles for Oscars.

Twilight’s Kiowa Gordon Arrested In Arizona

Kiowa Gordon, known for playing the shape-shifting werewolf Embry Call in the Twilight franchise, has been arrested in Mesa, Arizona for suspicion of driving under the influence. Things got even more grim for the Twi-hottie when cops discovered that he also had an outstanding warrant, TMZ is reporting. Apparently the 21-year-old Kiowa skipped out on a court appearance in February 2010 for possession of drug paraphernalia and distributing alcohol to minors. The Breaking Dawn actor is reportedly still in custody, but we’ll be sure to give you updates on this breaking story! So far we have no word from any Team Jacob reps.

UPDATE: TMZ is reporting that Kiowa was not arrested for a DUI, but instead pulled over for what police called “routine registration check” in Tempe, AZ. It was during the check that the police computer revealed his outstanding warrant, and the actor was then brought into custody.

James Franco Made A Sex Tape

We got some good news and bad news for you James Franco fans out there. The good news is, he made a sex tape. The bad news, it’s apparently pretty awful. During an appearance on Conan last night, the Rise of The Planet of the Apes star and renaissance man came clean about the one aspect of film he’s not so great at. “When I was young, it’s not like I went down to Van Nuys and tried to break into the porn industry,” he admitted. “I got a video camera and my girlfriend and I decided to film ourselves. And watched it back and said yeah, let’s never watch that again.” Although we’d kind of expect as much. If he can’t get the energy level up for hosting the dang Oscars, we can’t imagine his sex tape would be any better.

But the experience made him have a new reverence and respect for adult film stars. “Those people in porno’s are great performers,” says the Academy Award nominee. “They’re selling it to an audience!” He then went on to randomly mention his grandma in the next breath, for reasons we can only guess at. Damn it Franco, first rule of the porn industry: NEVER bring up Nanna.

Is Rihanna Sexting Joe Jonas?

Rihanna definitely seems like a gal who isn’t afraid to get what she wants, and it sounds like she wants Joe Jonas. That would explain why she’s apparently sexting the 21-year-old Disney star! “They met when Joe did a song with Rihanna’s ex Chris Brown, and recently she’s been bombarding him with raunchy text messages,” a source told ShowizSpy. “She keeps laughing to her mates that she wants to take him on the wildest ride of his life.”

The middle Jo-Bro has been linked to some pretty steamy women in his young life, including Ashley Green, Demi Lovato and Taylor Swift. Yet he still remains single, saying that he’s “always looking for the right person.” Is the sexed up Rihanna the one who can win/corrupt his young heart? Riri may be bad, but she’s certainly good at it! And there’s definitely something deliciously bad about a perpetually bikini’d older woman putting the moves on the young promise-ringer.

Zoe Kravitz’s Awkward Movie Date With Gossip Dude Penn Badgley

It looks like the X-Men bond has been broken, as Zoe Kravitz has split with her First Class costar Michael Fassbender and moved on to Gossip Girl star, Penn Badgley. The two were seen leaving the (aptly named) Friends With Benefits party in the same cab, and more recently they were seen canoodling in a darkened movie theater watching Horrible Bosses. “He had his arm around her while they waited in line,” a source told Page Six.

But it looks like that was the wrong movie to see together, because things got a little awkward for the newly minted couple. Apparently there’s a part of the movie where Jennifer Aniston’s racy character asks, “Did you see Gossip Girl last night? I [bleeped] myself so hard [watching] that Penn Badgley guy, I broke a nail.” According to the witness, this made the real Penn more than a little uncomfortable. “The look on Penn’s face was priceless. They left the theater right after.” Looks like you might have some competition, Zoe!

Adele Says Alcohol Helps Her Write Music

For most of us, booze helps us make bad decisions. Or at best, some kind of horrible whatever-is-in-the-fridge culinary creation at 3 AM. But for Adele, booze helps her write her award winning, record breaking, multi-platinum selling music. Wow, we’ll have what she’s having! Like many great records, the 23-year old singer’s brilliant sophomore album 21 was inspired by a breakup with her boyfriend. But just recently Adele opened up about her writing technique. And it involves knockin’ some back.

“I used to have to lock myself away in my house, get pretty drunk and write a drunk diary,” she admitted to The Sun, “and that was the first time I could admit things to myself.” She says this approach made her songs more honest. “A drunk tongue is an honest one in my opinion.” But that was only the first phase of the process. “The next morning I would read it through with an awful hangover and, in the cold light of day, had to absorb my feelings about myself.” In addition to helping her make great art, she says it also helped her grow up. “I started realizing my own flaws and my disappointments and I started regretting a lot of stuff. It was quite an awakening.” Pretty intense stuff for a then-21-year-old. Who knows what she’ll have to tell us on her next album!

Glee gents Cory Monteith, Darren Criss and Kevin McHale suited up in dapper darks, while Chris Colfer went with an off-kilter high collared shirt and tie.

Return Of The Kanye Rant: “People Look At Me Like I’m Hitler”

After a spell of acting like a subdued elder statesman of the rap game, the Kanye West we know and love returned with another bizarre (and bigheaded) outburst that may cause you to face-palm yourself in confusion. Being anything but chill while performing at the Big Chill music festival in England, he ranted:

“I walk through the hotel and I walk down the street, and people look at me like I’m f–king insane, like I’m Hitler. One day the light will shine through and one day people will understand everything I ever did.”

The crowd booed (he also began his set a half hour late), but Air Yeezy went on to say he wished to be remembered as the Air Jordan of the music world, not Hitler.
