It sounds like Kris Humphries and Myla Sinanaj never had that conversation. You know, the one where they decide to date each other exclusively and slam each other’s ex-fathers-in-law on Twitter. Or maybe they did, and Kris forgot to inform his lawyer? The gossips say the b-baller and the 25-year-old hotel employee have been dating since January, but his reps say he hasn’t dated anyone since his breakup with Kim Kardashian. Anyway, Sinanaj, who was snapped on the beach with Humphries just last Saturday and has been in the tabs nonstop ever since, got a nasty wake-up call yesterday. According to RadarOnline, the New Jersey Nets player’s lawyer, Lee Hutton, left Myla a voicemail yesterday asking her to stop calling herself his girlfriend.
“There are text messages between Kris and Myla which clearly prove that she is lying about being his girlfriend,” a source told the site. “Kris’ lawyer has also drafted a cease and desist letter that he will be sending to Myla which will also order her to stop making these claims. The timing of Myla making these claims is wreaking havoc on his upcoming divorce proceedings, because he will most certainly be asked about dating her during his upcoming deposition.”
We wonder what kind of havoc could be caused in Kris’ divorce, really. Does the law make a distinction between hookups and girlfriends?

Of all the many, many rumors we’ve been hearing about the movie adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey, this is one of our favorites: Angelina Jolie’s name has been floating around — no, not as a gender-swapped version of Christian Grey (though that would make things more interesting, and she did it for Salt!), nor as a casting choice for Elena/”Mrs. Robinson” (because who doesn’t think she’s into “kinky f—ery”?), but as a possible director of the film. According to Deadline, the folks at Universal Pictures denied having any conversations with Jolie, BUT they’d certainly consider her if she were into it. Hmmm, the love story of a naive college graduate and the corporate exec with a secret BDSM life sounds a wee bit different from In the Land of Blood and Honey, Angie’s directorial debut. It does, however, remind us of Jolie’s earlier days as a bad-girl actress who wore her husband’s blood around her neck. If she brought some of that attitude, and a little more feminist flavor than the book has, we could really get into this movie. Anyway, Deadline’s Mike Fleming doesn’t think it would happen, since she’s too involved in starring in Maleficent at the moment.
What’s your favorite Fifty Shades rumor of the moment? Sound off in the comments!

Sure, we’ll miss Noted Fashion Photographer Nigel Barker when America’s Next Top Model returns for Cycle 19 (!), but after spending the afternoon putting together this little gallery of the show’s new British judge, model Rob Evans. We have no idea about the former boxer’s skills with a bon mot at the judges’ table or whether he has very discriminating taste, but we could certainly forgive any shortcomings in that department. He certainly has Tyra’s seal of approval … and then some. According to RadarOnline, the 38-year-old model mogul and her 24-year-old recruit have been seen in L.A. and Newport Beach “canoodling” and going up to a hotel room together. This is mere weeks after Tyra was spotted out on a date with Drake, so all we have to say is, you go, Ty-Baby.
The recent Harvard grad openly showed her admiration for Rob, and posted an Instagram of them together last month with the caption, “All I can say is … yum.” Rob doesn’t seem to mind, either. In an interview with WetPaint after his Top Model gig was announced, he was asked if he expected rumors of a romance with his new boss would be surfacing soon. “Definitely. I’m a big flirt anyway,” he said.
That “bump” you see on Gisele in the photos taken of Gisele last week looks a hell of a lot like what we like to call “breakfast.” But yeah, on a supermodel, it very well could be proof that the 32-year-old Brazilian beauty is in fact three months pregnant with her second child with husband Tom Brady. Us Weekly cited an unnamed source as confirmation that 2-year-old Benjamin was going to be a big brother.
On the other hand, the Boston Herald says Gisele’s rep denied the report. “She has not shared any baby news with any of her inner circle,” the spokesperson said in an email to the paper. “I think it is a slow news day at Us lol.”
Whether or not the rumor is true, we would like to say these two know how to make a cute baby — and Tom’s got another cutie, Jack, with ex Bridget Moynahan — so we certainly understand wanting to keep at it!

We know it can’t be easy to be an ex-boyfriend of Taylor Swift, or an ex-girlfriend of John Mayer — you know you’re in danger of being skewered in a hit song or winding up with a rather unique nickname in the press. Still, it’s been two years since the two of them dated each other, so we were thought they’d have other exes to tear down. Not so much. We just learned how “humiliated” Mayer felt after hearing Swift’s “Dear John” song, and now according to the New York Post, it sounds like she doesn’t even want to be near him. She was about to be seated at West Hollywood hot spot Tower Bar, a source told Page Six, when she spotted Mayer sitting nearby. Swift promptly asked to be seated elsewhere (and the source said this was “drama central” but that sounds a little much).
Author and screenwriter Ray Bradbury passed away last night at the age of 91, and he’ll be missed for a whole lot more than just those books on your high school reading list. Today, as you head into the theaters to see The Hunger Games and Prometheus, stroll down you bookstore aisle to pick up the latest hot dystopian YA novel, or flip on your ginormous flat-screen TV, you owe something to Bradbury. As much as we refer to George Orwell’s Big Brother of 1984, rail against the dangers of Aldous Huxley‘s Brave New World and conjure up nightmares of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale, those book-burning “firefighters” of Fahrenheit 451 strikes fear into the hearts of many a reader and writer. His sci-fi writing (in short stories, The Ray Bradbury Theater TV show, and elsewhere), has also inspired many too follow in his imaginative footsteps. Granted we haven’t read his books since high school, so here, based largely on educated guesses and wild speculation, are 5 pop-culture things we owe the guy:
1. The Hunger Games: Fahrenheit 451 starkly contrasts the sterile, overstimulated emptiness of the dystopian city with the romanticized beauty of the country. Sound familiar?
“Hey @BarackObama… I don’t drink. Please fire the cop who arrested me. I also don’t hit and run. The end,” Amanda Bynes tweeted yesterday, shortly after she was charged with misdemeanor DUI for allegedly side-swiping a cop car and fleeing the scene in April. Despite her (and her father’s) frequent claims that she does not drink, prosecutors leveled the charge against her because she refused to take a Breathalyzer or blood test when she was arrested at 3 a.m on April 6, according to TMZ. At the time, the cops said she failed a field sobriety test and was deemed unfit to drive.
If convicted, she’d face 48 hours to six months in jail, but due to California’s notoriously overcrowded prison system, she’d likely only serve a couple of hours. Still, Bynes is clearly not going to stand for this kind of mark on her record, and for some reason seemed to think that the president could help her. Hmm, we know the Obamas love their celebrity friends, and the POTUS is relying on the likes of George Clooney, Sarah Jessica Parker and Jay-Z to help raise money and get out the vote this November. But something tells us that all her Twitter plea has done today is make us worry about the civic education of former child actors. Maybe she was too busy being All That to learn about the actual duties of the president?

After three years of dating, and three years of rumors of splits and engagements, Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are engaged, Miley’s rep confirmed to People today. “I’m so happy to be engaged and look forward to a life of happiness with Liam,” she told the magazine. He proposed last Thursday, May 31, with a 3.5-carat diamond ring from Neil Lane.
The 19-year-old actress/singer and her 22-year-old Hunger Games beau began dating in 2009 while filming The Last Song. They announced their breakup in August 2010, but were photographed making out in a car just a month later. Earlier this spring, after Miley was spotted wearing a rock on her left ring-finger, Liam’s older brother, Chris Hemsworth said he thought the pair were too young to get married. And we kind of agreed at the time. But perhaps the experience of caring for their growing pack of dogs together has made them decide to settle down?
Whatever the reason, we’re extending a wholehearted congrats to Liam and Miley, and consider this gallery of them being super-couple-y our engagement present to them.

We long ago established that Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield are ridonkulously cute together. I mean, on their own, we always wanted to be BFFs with each of them, so together, they’re a nuclear fusion of sweet, funny and awesome. That cute was fully on display at last night’s MTV Movie Awards, where Robert Pattinson‘s absence left a big vacancy in the GIF-able couple category. From the moment the Amazing Spider-Man co-stars arrived on the red carpet, they were making us squee. Just take a look at their interview with Kat Graham during the Pre-Show, which began with Andrew hiding behind Emma. When Kat, on duty as MTV’s style correspondent, asked Emma a question about her makeup, she started to answer, and then turned to BF Andrew mid-sentence and said, “You don’t have to be here for this!” “I do!” he protested, and proceeded to look very interested in Emma’s answer. Only boys in the early stages of love can look so absolutely absorbed in such things.
Just as Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have dominated the MTV Movie Awards Best Kiss category for the past four years — including last night, when KStew had to settle for a little onstage self love — their first onscreen lip lock was victorious in our own tournament last week. By an overwhelming majority of 84 to 16 percent, the Twilight kiss crushed The Notebook in our Ultimate Best Kiss Smoochdown. Judging by that vote, you guys your kisses wrought with tension and danger, but no tongue.
VH1 News hit up the Movie Awards carpet last night to find out what the stars thought was their own best kiss, and their tastes tend to differ from the typical Twi-hard.
“A five-minute Frencher is usually the go-to, and if that’s too long of a scene and people get all weird about it, then a nice, light tongue nibble on the lip kind of thing with groaning,” said Jeff Dye, the host of MTV’s hidden-camera show Money From Strangers.
“When a guy takes me out on a date and it’s a surprising kiss,” said Kirsten Prout of ABC Family’s The Lying Game. “Not like a sneak attack, pins you against the wall kind of kiss. When they dip you down low and it’s romantic and it’s like an old Hollywood movie, I’m a sucker.”
“Yeah, and I like up-against-the-wall hair pulling,” chimed in Lauren McKnight, Prout’s co-star in the My Super Psycho Sweet 16 movies.
To each her own!
