Lena Dunham made Taylor Swift's day

Lena Dunham has long been a Taylor Swift fan, telling KCRW in 2010 she felt Swift was her "artistic kindred spirit". "She may not know it yet. I'd love to tell her. I feel like the way she uses autobiography in her work and the way she calls out guys who have, you know, fronted on her before.  But at the same time there is something sort of affectionate and non-judgmental about her music that I appreciate ... Her music has a real range and scope and it's very wise beyond its years.

And now Swift is returning the compliment. Swift tells CMT Radio that when she found out the "incredibly talented" Dunham listened to her music, it was a really good day for her: "She's a writer, director and actress who stars in this show called Girls on HBO. And it's -- my friends and I -- it's our favorite show. And I've always been really blown away by how she's so young -- she's in her mid 20s -- and she does all these things. She creates so much. When I found out that she listens to my music, it absolutely floored me. It made my day, honestly."

Reese Witherspoon is "very different in private" says People

'She got discovered young, she got pregnant and married young, and has no connection to the real world.

They added: 'With her, what happens in public and in private is very different. She does like to drink. She's actually the real girl next door and not the cliche girl next door.'

Tara Reid on Lindsay Lohan: We Don't Like Each Other

Tara Reid is no fan of Lindsay Lohan ... and Lindsay Lohan ain't too fond of Tara either ... so says the "American Pie" star.

Tara hosted "TMZ on TV" yesterday ... and told us she and LiLo have some serious issues, despite the fact they run in the same social circles.

"We don't really like each other that much," Reid said ... "If I get drunk, I'm a happy drunk. When she gets drunk, she's just mean."

Reid also claimed that when the "Liz & Dick" star flips if she is photographed by friends when drinking. “She’s so paranoid, anyone who has a camera phone on her, she drops it in the ice bucket," she said.

"You can’t go on attacking people."

The blonde actress also said the troubled star should “stop driving.”

“She crashed one of my friend’s cars and I asked him ‘why do you let he do this’?" she said. "He was like ‘I don’t know.’ I don’t think people should get away with that much."

Still, Reid believes Lohan will eventually get her life back on track ... because people keep giving her "chance after chance after chance after chance."

NOW STREAMING: 'The Great Gatsby' Soundtrack

One of the many trailers promoting Baz Lurhmann's film version of The Great Gatsby ends with Leo DiCaprio uttering a crucial line adapted from the original novel. "My life has got to be like this," he says, pointing a finger toward the sky. "It's got to keep going up." That extravagantly aspirational spirit is captured in the soundtrack to the film, executive-produced by the kingpin rapper Jay-Z and featuring a stunning array of hip-hop royals, pop champs and de rigueur alternative rockers. Distilling the essence of the Jazz Age though never completely reflecting it, this soundtrack is as much an event as is the film that inspired it.

'Glee' Star Sues Playboy Chick Beat Me And Vandalized My Car

"Glee" star Mark Salling is firing back at the woman who accused him of raw-dogging her without consent -- filing new legal docs against the former Playboy model claiming she broke onto his property, beat him up and scratched his car.

TMZ broke the story ... Roxanne Gorzela -- who also works as a DJ -- sued Mark in January for sexual battery, claiming they hooked up in March 2011 and Mark forced himself on her without a condom. Roxanne said she was down for sex, but only with protection.

Roxanne said she went back to Mark's house March 15th to confront him ... and found him in bed with another woman. Gorzela says she demanded proof he had no STDs -- and he attacked her, pushing her to the ground.

Now, Mark has filed a countersuit ... in which he tells a VERY different story.

In the docs, filed in L.A. County Superior Court and obtained by TMZ ... Salling says Roxanne barged into his house without permission, yelling uncontrollably and hitting him on the chest, arms, and face.

But it gets worse ... Salling claims Roxanne eventually ran out of the home and turned her wrath on his car -- using various items from her purse to scratch it up, causing "substantial" damage.

Mark is suing for trespassing, and assault and battery ... and demanding unspecified damages.

Unless the two can settle their differences soon, they'll be headed for court -- where a jury will ultimately decide their fates.

Mila Kunis beats out Rihanna for FHM's Sexiest Woman in the World 2013

Millions of FHM readers voted for the sexiest woman in the world.

12 months ago, FHM announced that Tulisa Contostavlos - of N-Dubz, X Factor and sex tape fame - had officially been voted the World’s Sexiest Woman by the readers.

Millions of you – took to the streets (or at least the internet) to voice your outrage. It was front-page news on every tabloid newspaper. So many people clicked on that our server crashed three times. FHM received letters, emails, tweets and letter bombs denouncing the result. How could – in a world of 3,301,112,087 women – Tulisa possibly be the world’s hottest?

Our answer was simple: Democracy. 99% of those who threw their toys out of the pram did not cast a vote. If they had, things could have been very different.

This year, they were. Across three long months of polling FHM received more votes than ever before. And the result? The most competitive, and the most trouser-shatteringly sexy 100 Sexiest countdown of all time.

Another member of The Saturdays is pregnant

Saturdays singer Frankie Sandford has announced that she is expecting a baby with footballer Wayne Bridge.

The singer revealed the news in a tweet.

She wrote: "Some big news from me today! Wayne and I are having a baby. We are both so happy and can't wait for his or hers arrival!"

Wayne Bridge proposed to Frankie Sandford last month releasing the news to fans shortly afterwards on Twitter.

The 24-year-old singer rose to fame in the band S Club Juniors but has not said when the baby is due.

She is not the only member of the Saturdays expecting a baby.

Rochelle Humes is having a child with JLS singer Marvin Humes and Una Healy gave birth to a daughter, called Aoife, last year.

The Saturdays recently returned from the US after filming a reality TV show.

Wayne Bridge is playing for Brighton & Hove Albion while on loan from Manchester City.

Last year the defender bought Frankie Sandford an Aston Martin worth £135,000 for her birthday.

oop! Lindsay Lohan Treatment Facility Has No License

The treatment facility Lindsay Lohan is currently at has NO LICENSE to provide rehab treatment because its license was REVOKED ... TMZ has learned.

TMZ broke the story ... Lindsay has entered Morningside Recovery in Newport Beach ... even though prosecutors never signed off on the facility. The judge is giving prosecutors a week to investigate the facility, and here's the first thing they'll find.

We've learned in 2012 Morningside's license was suspended for being careless with prescription drugs and operating beyond the scope of its license. After a full hearing in May, 2012, the California Dept. of Alcohol and Drug Programs REVOKED Morningside's license outright.

We spoke with Millicent Tidwell, the Deputy Director of Licensing and Certificates at the Department, and she told us "Morningside cannot give any treatment."

Tidwell tells us the only thing Morningside can do without a license is provide a sober living environment, but NO TREATMENT.


We've learned one reason Morningside's license was revoked is because a 20-year-old patient suffering from bulimia and alcohol addiction died at the facility. According to official docs, the facility was not licensed to treat people with eating disorders. According to the family's lawsuit against Morningside, the man had a low electrolyte count and the facility should have transferred him to a hospital but didn't. The man died from cardiac arrest at Morningside while doing push-ups. (ty, ljubavirakija!)

Logan Lerman Joins Brad Pitt & Shia LaBeouf in David Ayer's 'Fury'

Logan Lerman is in talks to join the cast of David Ayer's upcoming military action thriller Fury, Deadline reports. He'd play Norman Ellison, a military typist serving under Brad Pitt's Sergeant Wardaddy and alongside Shia LaBeouf's character.

Set at the very end of World War II, in April 1945, Fury follows the battle-hardened Wardaddy, who commands a Sherman tank and her five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Outnumbered and outgunned, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming odds in their heroic attempts to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany.

Lerman, who recently starred in The Perks of Being a Wallflower, can soon be seen in two very different tales of gods and the high seas. He'll reprise his title role for Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters and will play Noah's son, Ham, in Darren Aronofsky's Noah.

QED is producing the film with John Lesher’s Le Grisbi Productions and Ethan Smith. Alex Ott is co-producing the feature with Ayer. Principal photography is set to begin in September 2013 and Columbia anticipates releasing Fury on November 14, 2014.

Emilia Clarke to Star in James Franco's 'Garden of Last Days'

Franco is directing the adaptation of the book by Andre Dubus III.

Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke will topline The Garden of Last Days, James Franco’s latest directorial effort.

This is the first gig for Clarke since signing with CAA in October.

Last Days is being financed by Nu Image/Millennium with Gerard Butler, Alan Siegel, Danielle Robinson, Hanna Weg, Vince Jolivette and Miles Levy producing.

Adapted from the 2008 novel by Andre Dubus III (House of Sand and Fog), The Garden of Last Days explores family and sexual values over the course of a night set in a Florida strip club.

In one of three interwoven stories, Clarke will play a stripper who brings her 3-year-old daughter to work.

A July start is being eyed for the low-budget movie.

Clarke plays Daenerys Targaryen, the dragon-commanding princess trying to reclaim her family’s throne, in HBO’s hit fantasy Game of Thrones. She has British crime drama Dom Hemingway, which stars Jude Law, in the can.

***More about the film***

Franco is set to direct and star in “The Garden of Last Days,” an adaptation based on the bestselling novel by Andre Dubus III (“House of Sand and Fog.”) The film, set in present day New York, will tell three interwoven stories: "a stripper out of options who brings her 3-year-old daughter to work; an angry, lonely man who gets thrown out of the club; and a foreigner with an endless supply of cash on the brink of committing a terrifying act." Production is set to begin July 8 in New York.

Will 'Chronicle' Star Michael B. Jordan Be Human Torch in 'Fantastic Four'?

"Chronicle" star Michael B. Jordan is in contention to play The Human Torch in Josh Trank's "Fantastic Four" reboot due in 2015, which would give the African-American actor a rare role as a superhero in a big studio franchise, numerous individuals familiar with the project have told The Wrap.

The Human Torch, also known as Johnny Storm, was white in the Marvel comic, and the wise-cracking character was previously played by Chris Evans in the original 2005 version and its 2007 sequel.

Twentieth Century Fox declined to comment on the record, but numerous individuals close to the studio and the actor have told The Wrap that "Chronicle" director Trank is considering a reunion with Jordan, whose feature career has soared since his breakout turns on TV in "The Wire" and "Friday Night Lights."

'My Fair Wedding' Host Allegations of Sex Addiction ... Prostitutes

David Tutera -- host of "My Fair Wedding" -- is a hardcore sex addict ... and his penchant for hookers destroyed his relationship with his husband ... this according to legal docs obtained by TMZ.

We broke the story ... David (pictured above left) filed documents to end his 10 year domestic partnership with his longtime partner Ryan Jurica. The couple is expecting a surrogate to give birth to twins for them in July.

Now, TMZ has learned ... TWO DAYS before David filed his docs in L.A., Jurica filed legal docs of his own in Connecticut hoping to end the civil union -- and the papers contain some explosive allegations.

In the docs, Jurica blames David's uncontrollable sexual appetite for the destruction of their relationship -- claiming, "After repeated attempts at marriage counseling and therapy, we have been unable to save our relationship due to [David's] addiction to sex."

Jurica continues in the docs, "[David] has engaged in a pattern of hiring sex escorts and prostitutes to support his addiction."

Jurica says David refuses to seek help for his hooker addiction.

There's more ... in the docs, Jurica also demands full custody of their unborn kids. David also filed a request for full custody in the legal docs filed in L.A..

Jurica also says David makes all the money in their relationship -- more than $1 mil per year -- and he needs money to survive (house payment, car payment, etc).

In the docs, filed by Jurica's lawyer Bettina D. Hindin, Jurica also says ... David was the one who broke up with him ... and he took it so hard, he went into a downward spiral and checked himself into an in-patient alcohol rehabilitation center.

TMZ did some digging and learned Jurica has been arrested twice in the past 5 months -- once for DWI and once for public intoxication.


8:30 PM PT -- David just released a statement to TMZ, calling the allegations baseless and untrue. He tells us, "I am saddened by these developments; I am angered by the lies; and I am committed to moving beyond this painful moment to focus on my professional commitments and the upcoming birth of my children."


Demi Lovato: Rehab helped me reassess

Demi Lovato is pleased rehab made her overhaul her social circle.

The 20 year old star checked into a center in 2010 due to “physical and emotional issues”. She later admitted suffering from bulimia and self harming. She also turned to alcohol during her darkest times and was diagnosed with bipolar disorder.

Looking back, Demi is amazed by how sucked in to celebrity life she had become.

“A couple of months before I went to rehab, I had a birthday party and there were a couple of hundred people there. It was full of people who I considered my closest friends,” she told Company magazine. “When I turned my phone on after being in rehab for three months, I expected lots of text messages and phone calls. I had four texts. That was a wake up call. I have severe trust issues but I try not to be jaded.”

Now the star has a select group of people she is close to and knows she can rely on. Although it was hard to realize she needed to make changes in her personal life, they have been for the better.

“I don’t have loads of friends. I used to, but then I realized, do any of them actually care? Now I have people who, if I break my leg in the middle of the night, they’ll come to the hospital with me,” she said. “Or they’ll answer the phone at 4 am if I need them.”

The former Disney star used to be close friends with Miley Cyrus and while they still talk, they don’t see each other much.

The star has also dismissed claims she dated One Direction’s Niall Horan, insisting they were just friends. She can’t understand why people are so keen to discuss her personal life, or that of other stars.

“I don’t care about Taylor Swift’s love life. I don’t care about Harry Style’s love life,” she said. “I care about mine. I find it weird that people are so obsessed with other people’s love lives!”


Everybody Should Come Out, Or Not

Andy West wrote in The Independent, in response to Jason Collins' historical coming-out, that everybody should come out and if you think you can't, you're wrong, you actually can:

I believe every single gay person in the UK should come out, regardless of the reception they expect to receive. Yes it’s frightening but it’s also necessary. As long as gay men and gay women allow themselves to be forced into the wilderness by other people, there will always be prejudice against the 'community' as a whole.

Meanwhile, the ignorant remain swaddled in the pretence that their bigotry is acceptable. Future generations will continue to feel that they are something strange and shameful. Repressed homosexuals will continue to be warped and poisoned until they themselves become the very worst homophobes. Stand up and declare that you are gay. If not for yourself then for everyone else.


The latest human in favor of everybody coming out is queer comedian Margaret Cho, who's been tweeting in response to an article by Lauren Rosewarne entitled A Margaret Cho Outing, in which Rosewarne expressed her dislike of Margaret Cho's show "Mother," which hit the Melbourne Comedy Festival this week. Namely, Rosewarne was unamused by a bit Cho did about John Travolta, which Rosewarne likened to "drag(ing) people out of the closet kicking and screaming."

Orphan Black has been renewed for a second season.


BBC AMERICA has announced that its critically acclaimed original scripted series Orphan Black has been renewed for a second season, which will premiere in the channel’s Supernatural Saturday block in 2014. The drama, which stars Tatiana Maslany as a streetwise British orphan who discovers she’s one of many clones, has received another 10-episode order.

Here’s the full release that went out to press:

BBC AMERICA has renewed highly acclaimed original series, Orphan Black, for a second season to return as part of Supernatural Saturday in 2014. The conspiracy clone thriller starring Tatiana Maslany has been re-commissioned with a 10-episode order from Temple Street Productions, ahead of its season one finale on Saturday, June 1.

In making the announcement, Perry Simon, General Manager, Channels, BBC Worldwide America said: “Tatiana Maslany has delivered one of the year’s standout performances. We’re excited to commission a second season from the talented team of Graeme, John and Temple Street Productions, and we can’t wait to see who Tatiana shows up as in season two.”

“We’re delighted with the second season order for Orphan Black and want to thank everyone at BBC AMERICA, BBC Worldwide and Space for their support and commitment to our show,” commented David Fortier and Ivan Schneeberg, executive producers of Orphan Black and Co-Presidents of Temple Street Productions. “We’re thrilled to continue this journey with such a strong team and fantastic cast, led by the ridiculously talented Tatiana Maslany. A huge thanks to the fans for their steadfast support of the show. We’re looking forward to giving every one of them more Orphan Black.”

The innovative series has earned critical acclaim including The Hollywood Reporter saying “It is, flat out, one of the most intriguingly entertaining new series of the year,” TV Guide Magazine calling it: “a tangy, sexy blend of sci-fi and Run Lola Run-style chase thriller.” and the New York Post proclaiming: “If God and the Emmys are fair, at least six Maslanys will be picking up statuettes this September.”

Orphan Black is produced by Temple Street Productions in association with BBC AMERICA and SPACE. The series is co-created by Graeme Manson and John Fawcett, with Manson also serving as writer and Fawcett as director. Ivan Schneeberg and David Fortier are executive producers on behalf of Temple Street. The cast includes Maria Doyle Kennedy (Downton Abbey, Dexter), Jordan Gavaris (Degrassi, Unnatural History), Dylan Bruce (As The World Turns, Unstoppable), Kevin Hanchard (The Listener, Take the Lead) and Michael Mando (Make Your Move, The Colony).

The groundbreaking series launched on March 30 with Sarah (Maslany), an outsider and orphan whose life changes dramatically after witnessing the suicide of a woman, “Beth,” who looks just like her. Sarah takes her identity, her boyfriend and her bank account. But instead of solving her problems, the street-smart chameleon is thrust headlong into a kaleidoscopic mystery. She makes the dizzying discovery that she and the dead woman are clones… but are they the only ones? Sarah quickly finds herself caught in the middle of a deadly conspiracy, racing to find answers.

How 'Game of Thrones' producers would write a 'Parks and Recreation' episode (and vice versa)


Parks and Recreation characters love a good Game of Thrones reference. So what would happen if the creative overlords of these two vastly different TV worlds swapped jobs for an episode? Treat yourself to the results. (Parks and Recreation‘s season 5 finale airs tonight on NBC at 9:30 p.m.)

PARKS AND RECREATION By Game of Thrones exec producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss

The Pawnee Avian Society, led by Councilman Jamm, strong-arms Leslie into building a park for Pawnee’s official bird, the Grizzled-Neck Pigeon. April, the Pale Woman, presides over the dedication, complete with burning garbage pyres. Ron sees a ghost (or a Tammy?) just as his handcrafted birdcage SPLINTERS, slicing Jean-Ralphio in half, breaking Tom’s legs, and rendering Jerry mute, save for his own name… “Jerry… Jerry…” Meanwhile, in Eagleton, Ann amasses a fleet of her own Grizzled-Necks, the Pigeon from the ceremony perched on her shoulder.

Back in Pawnee: Ron sinks into a single-malt depression, questioning his craftsmanship/purpose… He retreats to Brandi Maxxxx’s newest brothel. Leslie presides over the Small City Council, where she accuses Jerry of sabotage. His punishment: He must piggyback handicapped Tom. Ben recognizes the Thrones takeover and insists Andy is the one true Hodor. Tom bribes the Sun to report that his “Jerry-Rig” is the latest “throwback slave couture.” Rent-A-Swag is immediately shut down.

The episode climaxes at Jean-Ralphio’s funeral, kicked off by Mona–Lisa’s twincest-laden eulogy. The Avian Society mercifully interrupts her with what Ron saw before: THE TAMMY WALKER, a Two-Headed Ice-Tammy riding a rotting Li’l Sebastian. Ben prays for aThronesian miracle… and a flaming yardstick careens into Jamm’s (surprisingly flammable) afro. Cut to Donna, thumbs-up. Everything burns fast — but the Tammy rises from the ashes… right as Ann and her Pigeon Fleet emerge from the Eagleton Highlands, raining down a majestic s—storm, extinguishing her for good.

The gang buries Jean-Ralphio’s tastefully swagged halves, each in its own custom Swanson casket.

Credits: Chris admits he’s a eunuch.

P!nk is still No. 1, PSY flops

'Just Give Me a Reason' claims a third week at No. 1 on the Hot 100, while Macklemore & Lewis log their second Digital Songs leader and Rihanna scores a milestone No. 1 on Radio Songs

P!nk tallies a third week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with "Just Give Me a Reason," featuring fun.'s Nate Ruess. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, meanwhile, notch a second leader on Digital Songs and Rihanna ties for the most No. 1s in the Radio Songs chart's history.

"Reason" remains atop the Hot 100 despite not leading any of the survey's main component charts. The song holds at No. 3 on Radio Songs, up by 10% to 125 million all-format audience impressions, according to Nielsen BDS; lifts 6-5 on Streaming Songs with a 2% increase to 4.7 million streams, according to BDS; and falls 1-2 after four weeks atop Digital Songs (253,000 downloads sold, down 4%), according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Michael Buble Tops Billboard 200, Fantasia Arrives at No. 2

Outside the top 10, notable for its plunge on the Hot 100 is K-Pop star PSY's "Gentleman," which tumbles 5-26. The song debuted at No. 12 two weeks ago, powered by initial online buzz for its video. It falls 1-6 after two weeks atop Streaming Songs (4.7 million U.S. streams, down 66%), even ranking below his breakout hit from last year, "Gangnam Style," which holds at No. 3 on Streaming Songs (5.3 million, down 22%). ("Gentleman" is now up to 252 million YouTube views worldwide [as of this posting]; the Hot 100, however, includes only U.S. views each week.)

Sales for "Gentleman" also decrease by 50% to 36,000. The song's 1.2 million in radio audience is not yet a significant factor in its chart fortunes, accounting for just 1% of its Hot 100 chart points.

Check tomorrow (May 2), when all rankings, including the Hot 100 in its entirety and Digital Songs, Radio Songs, Streaming Songs and On-Demand Songs will be refreshed, as they are each Thursday.

Zoe Saldana Confirmed For Guardians of the Galaxy

The casting of Zoe Saldana as Gamora in Guardians of the Galaxy seems to be a done deal — or at least Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige is talking about it like it is.

During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Feige said he thinks “audiences will respond to an alien Zoe Saldana,” confirming earlier reports. That means the Star Trek actress will officially join Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, Michael Rooker as Yondu and Ophelia Lovibond as an “aide” to one of the movie’s villains.

The EW article also has a concept art showing Peter Quill having his first extraterrestrial encounter, which happens before he gets sent to space. Feige said that, while Guardians will take place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe continuity, it will take place on the opposite side of the universe. It will be interesting to see how Guardians gets tied in to the main MCU storyline.

Director James Gunn opened up about the continuity as well during a recent interview. “In terms of a lot of stuff we’re very much like The Avengers, where it’s a very big, huge movie,” he said. “It’s different because it’s cosmic, it’s in outer space, it’s very colorful. We have a whole history of science fiction behind us that we’re dealing with, and borrowing from, and also fighting with to create something unique. But at the same time there’s a lot of stuff it has in common with The Avengers.”

Guardians of the Galaxy opens Aug. 1, 2014.

Bye, Bye Dr. Drew! Celebrity Rehab DONE!

Having faced five deaths among cast-members on Celebrity Rehab over the years, Dr. Drew Pinsky has revealed that he’s calling time on the popular VH1 show.

“I don’t have any plans to do it anymore,” the television doctor said, in a new interview. “I am tired of taking all the heat, it is just ridiculous.”Critics took aim at the MTV/VH1 and HLN star after troubled country singer Mindy McCready her own life in February in Arkansas. At the time, Dr. Drew went on television to remind people that the singer had a long history of substance abuse and mental health issues and had not “sustained” her treatment.

Her death was the latest to have hit the Celebrity Rehab alumni, which was already grieving the deaths of Jeff Conaway, Rodney King, Mike Starr and Joey Kovar.The toll promoted some to take swipes, including singer Richard Marx, who compared the the famous addictionoligist to suicide doctor Jack Kevorkian — he later apologized.

“I’m tired,” Dr. Drew told radio program Zach Sang & The Gang.“It’s very stressful and very intense for me. And to have people questioning my motives and taking aim at me because people get sick and die, because they have a life threatening disease, then I have to take blame for that?“Rodney King has a heart attack and I have to take blame for that? That’s really what is happening these days.”He added, “Treating addiction is treating addiction and we had a program that was second to none. We could handily anything — the sickest patients we would take. And we were good. We did it for 20 years. That’s enough.”



Reese Witherspoon just pled no contest and her husband Jim Toth pled guilty in Atlanta to charges stemming from his DUI arrest and her bust for mouthing off to the arresting officer ... TMZ has learned.

Reese -- who was arrested for disorderly conduct April 19 after disobeying an officer's order to stay in the car -- pled no contest to the infraction. You'll recall during her husband's arrest an inebriated Reese asked the cop, "Do you know my name?" She also told him he was gonna be on national news.

Reese -- who was not present but represented by her lawyer, Bruce Morris -- entered the plea to physical obstruction of another and will pay a pay a $213 fine, and that's it.

As for Jim, he was in court and pled guilty to driving under the influence. He'll get no jail time but he must perform 40 hours of community service and attend an alcohol education program. He's been placed on probation for 12 months.

The judge said to Jim, "Consider yourself fortunate you didn't injure your passenger [Reese] and didn't kill anyone."

This is an unusual move for celebrities, who often try and spin their legal woes. Reese was on GMA this morning ... saying she and Jim took full responsibility for their screw-ups and even admitted they exercised really bad judgment when he got behind the wheel drunk.

Her GMA appearance was just hours before Reese and Jim essentially said the same thing to a judge -- accepting responsibility and taking their lumps

Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver CONFIRMED for Avengers 2!

Twentieth Century Fox (or, rather, now 21st Century Fox) may own the screen rights to Magneto, the leader of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. But they apparently don't own the screen rights to his kids.

Marvel fans will be happy to know that at least two new characters have been confirmed to appear in "Marvel's The Avengers 2": Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. Joss Whedon hinted at last week's Hollywood premiere of "Iron Man 3" that he had written a "brother-sister act" into the script for the "Avengers" sequel, which immediately had fans speculating that he meant the popular mutant duo.

Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige is putting on a poker face about the whole thing, though he emphasizes that nothing's set in stone until the final draft has been set in stone.

"I'm not confirming or denying," said Feige to Entertainment Weekly. "The draft could change six months from now."

Twin siblings Pietro Maximoff, aka Quicksilver, and Wanda Maximoff, aka the Scarlet Witch, made their comics debut in "X-Men" #4 (March 1964). As the offspring of Magneto, they were portrayed as bad guys for a few issues before joining the Avengers in "Avengers" #16 (May 1965). Scarlet Witch has the ability to manipulate probability and reality via her "hexes," which usually manifest as cool-looking "hex bolts" or "hex spheres," while Quicksilver is able to move and think at super-sonic speeds.

Joss Whedon has no doubt come up with a clever way to introduce these two characters into the "Avengers" universe ... and a careful one, at that, as he's unable to mention Magneto or the X-Men or perhaps even the phenomenon of "mutant powers" as they exist in the Marvel universe due to the "X-Men" property belonging to Fox and not Disney. Having Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch in "The Avengers 2" also means that we'll never see them in an "X-Men" movie, which rules out any future scenario of being reunited with dear old dad (Ian McKellen/Michael Fassbender, depending on what time it is).

On the assumption that the twins make it to the final shooting draft (and really, why wouldn't they?), let the casting speculation now commence. How about Alexander Skarsgård and Eva Green?

"Marvel's The Avengers 2" will hit theaters on May 1, 2015.


Oh hells yes!! It's official now!

Gwyneth Paltrow cover "Glamour" [June/UK]

Her anticipated flick "Iron Man 3" premieres in theaters Friday (May 3) and Gwyneth Paltrow soaked up the spotlight by covering the June 2013 issue of Glamour UK.

After rocking a few poses in an all-white ensembles for the Colina Rentmeesters photo shoot, the "Contagion" beauty dished about her new home in the British capital and her life with singer-songwriter Chris Martin.

On enjoying life across the pond:
"I love London - it's my adopted home. Being an American woman living in Britain, there are things I've had to catch up on, though. Chris had to explain Blue Peter to me! In London, the kids and I really take advantage of the city. I have them on the tube, in the museums, in St James' Park, the theater. I use that city so much - I want them exposed to it."

On marriage:
"It's hard being married. You go through great times, you go through terrible times. We're the same as any couple. I asked my dad once, 'How did you and mom stay married for 33 years?' and he said, 'Well we never wanted to get divorced at the same time.' And I think that's what happened. When two people throw in the towel at the same, then you break up, but if one person's saying, 'Come on, we can do this,' you carry on."

On how she approaches her and Chris' relationship:
"I'm a very grounded, homey person and Chris is a very mad scientist, genius songwriter. So I never say, 'Where are you? You should be home by now.' I never place demands on him because I think he's a really talented man and he's putting something good into the world."

Katy Perry’s firebrand preacher dad finds watching her perform ‘hellish.’

Katy Perry’s firebrand preacher dad finds watching her perform ‘hellish.’
Katy Perry’s father has labeled his own daughter as a "devil child."
According to a report by the UK's The Sun, firebrand preacher Keith Perry has made claims that watching his famous daughter perform is so hellish that he finds himself weeping because the fans are worshipping the "Fireworks" singer instead of God.
Perry's parents are currently touring American churches as guest speakers and allegedly in Perry's father's sermons he urges people to "pray for Katy."
The couple reportedly show a video on their tour which depicts their pop star daughter as a "devil child" who needs "healing."
"They ask how I can preach if I produce a girl who sang about kissing another girl?" her father said at a speaking engagement in Santa Fe Springs, Calif. according to The Sun.
"I was at a concert of Katy's where there were 20,000. I'm watching this generation and they were going at it. It almost looked like church."
Katy Perry’s dad thinks she needs healing.
"I stood there and wept and kept on weeping and weeping. They're loving and worshipping the wrong thing," he continued.
Perry's mom and dad also asked for donations, "not one or two dollars, but 20s" so they can reportedly go to Switzerland.
The 28-year-old singer, who split from British bad boy husband Russell Brand last year, has topped the Billboard charts with eight No. 1 singles thus far in her career.
She's currently filming (what I've heard is) a perfume advert in my school! Excitinggggggggg. If I see her, I have my ONTD sign ready.

'Drop Dead Diva' is Back From the Dead on June 23!

The irony of Lifetime's dramedy about a woman who gets a second chance at life and the show's own return from cancelation isn't lost on us.

Fans should be happy to hear that "Drop Dead Diva" returns to Lifetime on Sunday, June 23 at 9/8c.

Additionally, the series from "Bones" producer Josh Berman just revealed that it's bringing on a new angel. Justin Deeley has been cast to replace Carter McIntyre (who replaced Ben Feldman on Season 4) as Jane's (Brooke Elliot) guardian angel.

Fans may recognize Deeley, 27, from his recurring role as Austin on The CW's "90210." He also has three movies due out this year: "Thriftstore Cowboy," "The Wicked," and "Geography Club."

McIntyre will return for one episode to presumably resolve his storyline.

Series regulars Elliott, Margaret Cho, Jackson Hurst, Kate Levering, April Bowlby and Lex Medlin are returning. In addition, John Ratzenberger reprises his role as Kim’s (Levering) father, while Jamie Ray Newman is back as Grayson's (Hurst) ex-fiancée Vanessa.

Lifetime canceled "Drop Dead Diva" in January. But, the show's producer, Sony Pictures Television, in tandem with its fans, fought to find ways to bring it back. The series was a solid performer for Lifetime last season averaging more than 2 million viewers an episode.

'The Americans' Finale Scoop: Executive Producers On What Happened And What's Next

Watching "The Americans" evolve over the course of the show's first season has been a gratifying process. It not only provided Keri Russell, who gave a brilliantly calibrated performance as Soviet spy Elizabeth Jennings, with an opportunity to blow away any preconceptions that might have lingered in the minds of fans of "Felicity," it also elicited a terrifically subtle performance from Matthew Rhys, who played her husband, Philip, with quiet intensity and a broodingly romantic air. And far from being an intellectual exercise in Soviet-U.S. gamesmanship, the show also provided an array of fight scenes, car chases and undercover identities that proved, once and for all, that Soviet wig technology of the '80s was far more advanced than anyone knew.

Slayer Guitarist Jeff Hanneman Dead at 49


Just over two years after contracting a rare skin tissue disease, Slayer guitarist and songwriter Jeff Hanneman died on Thursday from liver failure at Hemet Valley Medical Center, near his home in Southern California's Inland Empire area.

Slayer made the news public on Thursday afternoon, announcing that the band "is devastated" and calling Hanneman, who was 49, their bandmate and brother. Twitter quickly filled with messages from fans and fellow musicians, many of whom were in Los Angeles for the 5th Annual Revolver Golden Gods Awards show at Club Nokia. Disturbed/Device frontman David Draiman was among the very first, posting "RIP TO A TITAN OF METAL," while drummer Mike Portnoy wrote, "WOW...I'm in shock...RIP Jeff Hanneman."

LaLa Vazquez mocks Jordan Crawford following exchange with Carmelo Anthony

Actress LaLa Vazquez, the wife of Carmelo Anthony, has found herself playing a leading role in drama between the Knicks and Celtics for the second time this season.

Back in January, Anthony was suspended by the NBA for one game after pursuing Kevin Garnett to the Celtics’ team bus following a Knicks loss in which the two players received technical fouls and were involved in some heated trash talk. Rumors surfaced after the game that Vazquez was the subject of some of Garnett’s woofing.

Following Boston’s Game 5 win on Wednesday night, Celtics guard Jordan Crawford sought out Anthony, exchanging a number of words before the two teams headed to their respective locker rooms. Crawford’s talk prompted Raymond Felton to join the conversation and then led to a number of players and coaches intervening to separate the two sides. Again, rumors circulated after the game that Vazquez was the subject of Crawford’s taunting.

Gerard Way hits the right notes for 'Fabulous Killjoys'

The former My Chemical Romance singer gives a preview of his new series for Free Comic Book Day this Saturday.

It's finally time for the Killjoys to make some noise.

After five years of planning, plotting and creating, former My Chemical Romance singer Gerard Way is releasing his futuristic Dark Horse Comics series The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys. It's a tale of freedom-fighting punks and evil corporate empires that tied into his band's last album and was partly inspired by the birth of his daughter.

"It will give closure to a part of my life, and I'm sure it will do the same for Gerard, his former band and hopefully their fans," says Shaun Simon, a co-writer on the series with Way.

Fans will get their first look at Killjoys with a Free Comic Book Day special issue available on Saturday at comic shops nationwide. The first issue of the six-part miniseries, featuring artist Becky Cloonan, debuts June 12.

Scared Shatless: Chris Pine on boldly going where one man has gone before

When you're the second person to portray one of science fiction's iconic characters, Chris Pine notes, it's easy to second-guess yourself about nearly everything. The American actor should know, having inherited the role of the USS Enterprise's Captain James T. Kirk in the Star Trek universe from William Shatner. Millions of dedicated Trekkies have kept the internet afloat with their views on him as Shatner's successor.

Pine went a long way to making the part his own with a swaggering, committed take on the 23rd-century hero in director J.J. Abrams' highly successful 2009 Star Trek reboot, but four years, and one highly anticipated sequel in Star Trek: Into Darkness later, he says his response to donning Kirk's trademark Starfleet uniform is still essentially the same.

''The first thought is always don't screw it up,'' says Pine, who was in Sydney last week along with his director and several of his co-stars for the world premiere of the new movie.

Amanda Bynes explains makeover: 'I want to look like Blac Chyna'

Amanda Bynes is telling everyone that she’s very much not crazy, but then the spiraling starlet did the most insane thing ever: gave an exclusive interview to a tabloid! She sat down with inTouch magazine and of course, I got my hands on an early copy of the ultra-odd convo. Take a look…

Is it true you needed to shave your head after a bad dye job?
AB: Yes, I had to shave my head. It’s so annoying to have no hair at 27. I have extensions that I love but I miss my own hair.

Explain the facial piercings.
AB: I wanted to look like [stripper] Blac Chyna.

You’ve said you’re starting a fashion line.
AB: I love Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s clothing line…and I love how Justin Bieber dresses. My line will be a mixture of sick styles, and it’s going to be for everybody.

Do you think you have any issues with addiction?
AB: I don’t drink. I’m allergic to alcohol.

Where do you see yourself in five years?
AB: Happily married!

To recap, Amanda wants to look like a stripper, dress like Justin Bieber and find a man on planet Earth that will wife her up? Perhaps “insane” is too feeble a term…XOXO.


That's also a new picture she posted earlier today.

Tennis star Andy Murray blasts "biggest cover-up in sports history"

Andy Murray last night hit out at a Spanish judge who ordered evidence relating to one of the biggest doping rings in history to be destroyed.

Britain’s No 1 tennis player called the decision to dump more than 200 blood bags from stars in a number of sports as ‘the biggest cover-up in sports history’ and said it was a ‘joke’.

Earlier, Madrid judge Julia Santamaria ruled that the 211 blood bags from 35 people taken as part of the seven-year Operation Puerto investigation into Dr Eufemiano Fuentes could not be analysed by anti-doping authorities but must be discarded.

It now remains to be seen whether Fuentes, who was handed a suspended one-year jail term and banned from practising sports medicine for four years, will reveal the full extent of his operation, which he confessed went beyond cycling and into tennis, athletics and football.

Murray tweeted last night: ‘operacion puerto case is beyond a joke... biggest cover up in sports history? why would court order blood bags to be destroyed? #coverup

Fuentes’s sentence is relatively lenient because when police seized the anabolic steroids and blood in 2006, doping was not illegal in Spain. He was instead tried for violations of public health regulations. The World Anti-Doping Agency remain hopeful that the Spanish anti-doping bodies will be able to appeal against the ruling to destroy all the evidence.

The decision was also criticised by Andy Parkinson, chief executive of UK Anti-Doping, who said: ‘We are disappointed. Dr Fuentes has admitted to having been involved in multiple prohibited doping activities, and linked with multiple unnamed athletes.

‘It therefore cannot be right that these names will remain unknown and no immediate action can be taken.’ The court also sentenced former cycling team official Ignacio Labarta to four months in jail, and acquitted three others, including Fuentes’s sister Yolanda. Tyler Hamilton, who played a key role in Lance Armstrong's demise, spoke at the case.

MAC Sells Out Of Rihanna’s RiRi Woo Lipstick In Three Hours

RiRi Woo, the MAC lipstick shade created in collaboration with Rihanna, sold out online in three hours. During that time, “RiRi Woo” was trending on Twitter as customers complained of multiple failed attempts to get through to make the purchase.

The collaboration was announced in February. At the time, Jennifer Balbier, senior VP of global product development for MAC said Rihanna was insistent that “the color be suitable for every skin tone.”
For her part, Rihanna said she’s been using MAC products on tour for ages.

The next time the shade will be available will be in June. But for those with tickets to the Diamonds World Tour’s stop at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn (ahem!) you can buy them on-site at a MAC pop-up store that will be set up in the arena.
