First we get a Chris Brown/Cher mini slider, now Chris Rock is starting some delicious New York strip steak drama? Good thing we’re omnivores because there is beef as far as the eye can see! This morning when Today host Matt Lauer said in passing, “We’re hoping the same kind of weather hits us tomorrow when we’ve got Chris Brown out on the plaza,” guest Rock couldn’t help but joke, “Did you say you hope the same weather hits you? I hope some weather doesn’t smack us upside the head.” Chris Rock can’t help it! He’s a comedian. He knows you can’t let perfectly good beef go to waste. Our deepest apologies to Elmo though; no tiny puppets needed to hear that.
Now that we think about it, Rock’s comments actually pale in comparison to how hard Cher zinged Chris earlier this week following rumors that Brown took to Twitter and declared that the Just Like Jesse James singer “needs a beating” for criticizing President Obama. The gossip later turned out to be false, but when a fan tweeted, “Cher, how do you feel about Chris Brown saying he was gonna hit you.” Cher replied, “I don’t know. Is that something he’s particularly good at?” Someone get the grill going and break out the hamburger buns! Looks like we’re going to have beef all summer long!

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).
Next time you think Leighton Meester is just another pretty face, remember that she’s actually a pretty face who’s been quietly and with impressive dignity dealing with her “crazy” mother for years. If you recall, the That’s My Boy actress filed a suit against her mom Constance Meester last July; Constance was allegedly using the $7,500 a month Leighton sent home for her young brother Lex‘s medical fund…to buy herself luxury items “like plastic surgery, Botox, and hair extensions.” That must be some weave if it’s worth ignoring your son’s medical bills, Constance! Must be the finest weave in the entire world!
Meester’s mom allegedly argued in court that her actress daughter “had promised to take care of her,” which we guess somehow translates into having the smooth forehead skin of a wax doll? Luckily the judge on the case ruled that no such agreement existed. According to TMZ, the Gossip Girl actress will not get back the spent funds; instead she “just wanted the judge to make her mother go away.” Why do we have a feeling that won’t be happening any time soon? We were already going to see That’s My Boy; now we’ll want to go just so Leighton can recoup some of her losses!

Guys, we cannot deal with this Jenny McCarthy/ Jim Carrey drama if it turns into real beef. We cannot. Emotionally, spiritually, mentally, we just do not have it in us. If Carrey’s curt retort to McCarthy’s comments about him failing to visit her autistic son Evan are any suggestion though, that might where this sadness is headed. “I will always do what I believe is in the best interest of Evan’s well being,” Jim claimed early today according to TMZ. “It’s unfortunate that Evan’s privacy is not being considered. I love Evan very much and will miss him always.” Guys, we know it might be hard to believe, but if our jobs have taught us anything…them’s fighting words.
Of course, seeing as how Jenny brought up her ex’s role in Evan’s life after their 2010 split in the first place, it was sort of inevitable that Carrey would feel the need to call her out. “I’ve tried to ask [Jim] numerous times [to see Evan], because my son still asks,” McCarthy told Howard Stern earlier this week. “I tell [Evan] that someday you’ll cross paths, meet again. . . [but] it’s hard. He’s been in therapy. It’s a process, he’s working on it.” We are going to have to enter therapy if two celebs start fighting over an autistic 10-year-old. Wouldn’t a few harsh text messages be more than enough, you guys? A nasty yet still private Facebook message?

It was about this time last year that America was caught up in the tiger-blod-soaked, warlock-populated insanity that was Charlie Sheen‘s extremely public meltdown. While the man has fortunately moved on, even landing new show Anger Management, the actor obviously hasn’t forgotten The Dark Times either. “Clearly, a guy gets fired, his relationships are in the toilet, he’s off on some f—ing tour, there’s nothing ‘winning’ about any of that,” Sheen told this month’s Rolling Stone. “I mean, how does a guy who’s obviously quicksanded, how does he consider any of it a victory? I was in total denial.” He took the words right out of our mouth! Of course, Charlie’s dismissal from Two and a Half Men and divorce from Brooke Mueller were only a few of the shocking parts of his crash, and nowhere near the craziest. The five most jaw-dropping moments of his breakdown (as we remember it) would have to be:
1. That coke-fueled hotel room trashing: The first and perhaps the most conspicuous event in Charlie’s months-long meltdown was his October 2010 rampage through New York’s Plaza Hotel, during which he ransacked his room and allegedly held porn star Capri Anderson against her will. If only we could have foreseen the absurdity to follow…
2. Jon Cryer beef: Sheen called his Two and a Half Men costar a “a troll” for a host of perceived slights. A completely uncalled for insult, but on the other hand, lol. Read more…
John Mayer is known for controversial comments in interviews as they pertain to women and ex-girlfriends. How ironic, then, that his feelings were hurt over Taylor Swift’s “Dear John” from the 2010 Speak Now album. Two years later, John tells Rolling Stone magazine that he was “humiliated” by his rumored ex’s song. Even after Mayer’s low-key hiatus after he divulged troubling information about his sexual desires in Playboy two years ago, we see he hasn’t learned Rihanna’s tactic of not answering certain questions that may cause a stir. Read more…
“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.
