It is so, SO ON between ORLANDO BLOOM and JUSTIN BIEBER.  Okay, technically, it was on the moment Orlando took a swing at Justin at a restaurant in Ibiza, Spain. But Justin took it to another level yesterday by posting a picture of Orlando WIPING A TEAR FROM HIS EYE.  E! Online says the photo was taken last year at the Broadway premiere of "Romeo & Juliet", which Orlando starred in. He also posted a picture of Miranda on Instagram, with the only caption being the image of a crown. But he took it down.


ALLISON WILLIAMS . . . universally recognized as THE HOT ONE on HBO's "Girls" . . . has been cast as PETER PAN in NBC's upcoming live special based on the Broadway musical. Yes, you heard me right:  Marnie from "Girls" is going to play Peter Pan. It sounds bizarre, but it's actually really common for chicks to play Peter Pan onstage.  MARY MARTIN . . . who was LARRY HAGMAN'S mother . . . famously did it in the 1950s. One-eyed minx SANDY DUNCAN owned the role in the '70s and '80s.  And Olympic gymnast CATHY RIGBY did it on-and-off from 1990 up until 2013. And for this NBC special, they were actually considering KRISTEN BELL, but she had a scheduling conflict. "Peter Pan Live!" is being made by the same people who thought we wouldn't be bothered by CARRIE UNDERWOOD'S horrible acting in last year's "Sound of Music Live!". The difference here is that Allison Williams can do both things the role asks of her:  Act AND sing.  Oh, and did I mention thatCHRISTOPHER WALKEN is playing Captain Hook? "Peter Pan Live!" airs on Thursday, December 4th.


Production on the new season of "The Big Bang Theory" was supposed to start yesterday, but it's been delayed because several stars, including Jim ParsonsJohnny GaleckiKaley CuocoSimon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar, want more money. Sources say Parsons, Galecki and Cuoco are holding out for, quote, "Friends money".  That would be around $1 million an episode, which is what the "Friends" cast eventually got. They'll probably get it.  Nobody really sees this as more than a typical contract negotiation.  Season 8 is still set to debut on September 22nd, as planned.


Police say a 17-year-old girl was RAPED at a KEITH URBAN concert on Saturday, at an outdoor amphitheater in Mansfield, Massachusetts, 30 miles south of Boston.  And it happened in front of a large group of people on the upper lawn. People who saw it took photos and video, and eventually a female fan ran over and pushed the guy off the girl.  Other people say the guy got up and left on his own. Either way he ran off, but was caught and arrested a short time later.  He's 18-year-old Sean Murphy, and he's been charged with rape.  He pleaded not guilty, and was released on $10,000 bond. His lawyer says the whole thing was consensual, and quote, "This was a private act, that regrettably occurred in a public place." He also says the girl wasn't drunk or on drugs at the time, but Murphy has admitted to being "drunk on Jack Daniels and beer."  And the police report says that when he called his parents, he was overheard saying he "messed up." This is the same concert police called a, quote, "mass casualty" event . . . more than 50 people were placed in protective custody, and 46 were given medical treatment.  Mainly because they were all HAMMERED.

CONGRATULATIONS to Alicia Keys, she is pregnant with baby # 2!! She posted a picture to Instagram with a GIANT baby bump! No word on the due date but what exciting news for the couple who just celebrated their anniversary!

ORLANDO BLOOM and JUSTIN BIEBER almost mixed it up at a restaurant in Ibiza, Spain yesterday. Witnesses say it started when Justin PURPOSELY bumped into Orlando. Orlando then went after him and even THREW A PUNCH, which missed . . . after which Justin yelled, quote, "What's up, bi**h?" There was a brief confrontation, then Justin left . . . and the crowd applauded. The video is below, but it catches the action AFTER the punch was supposedly thrown.


Everybody thinks JENNIFER LAWRENCE is so sweet and real and down-to-Earth. But what if it's all just an act? An Australian gossip site says Jennifer's boyfriend NICHOLAS HOULT has broken up with her because of her, quote, "EXPLODED EGO." You know him as the guy who plays Beast in the "X-Men" movies. A source says, quote, "Nicholas is moving on. He hates how in love with fame Jen is, and he told her he hates dating an A-list actress . . . Nic wants a more low-key girlfriend." Who could that low-key girlfriend be? Sources say he's already cozying up to ELVIS' granddaughter RILEY KEOUGH . . . because, quote, "Riley is into acting in indies and not playing the fame game."


MAKSIM CHMERKOVSKIY came back to "Dancing with the Stars" last season, and he won the show with Olympic Ice Dancer MERYL DAVIS.  And apparently, he wants to go out on top. On "The View" yesterday, Maksim said he's leaving "Dancing with the Stars" . . . for GOOD, this time.  To be clear, he said he was done as a DANCER, but left the door open to return to the show in a different capacity. He didn't really elaborate . . . but we're assuming that would be as a JUDGE or something, because it isn't like he's going to come back as a set designer or boom mic operator. 

DMX was recently in Orlando at a place called Magical Midway. There is a ride called the Slingshot. It thrusts you 350 ft in the air, just like a slingshot. He was REALLY scared and didn't even try to hide it. Check out the hilarious video below.

The Bachelorette finale was last night, Andi ended up choosing Josh, and yes, he did propose. But that's not the real story. What's really awkward is what happened at the "After the Rose" ceremony, when Nick, the guy she DIDN'T choose, revealed something he probably shouldn't have. Here's how it went down. Nick was obviously feeling the bitter sting of rejection. Andi told him he would find love again, and that he deserved someone who would reciprocate his feelings 100%.  She also told him that she was never in love with him. That's when he lowered the boom.  He said, quote, "If you weren't in love with me, I'm just not sure why, like, why you made love with me." It was a TOTALLY uncomfortable moment, and Andi was NOT happy that he brought it up.  She called it, quote, "kinda below the belt," adding that was something that should have remained PRIVATE.

Lea Michelle, good girl from Glee, just took to Twitter to announce that she is going to appear on an episode of her one of her favorite shows, Sons of Anarchy. And it's a very different role for her, MUCH different than what you're used to seeing on Glee. She'll play an empathetic waitress and single mother. No telling why she will only be on one episode. But it should be interesting to see her in a role like this.

Actress Kate Walsh went to Disneyland with a few friends last weekend. They got into the log flume on Splash Mountain. On the way down, the photographer snapped a picture of Kate grabbing her friend's boobs in front and holding on. 

Do you think you know what the MOST WATCHED trailer of the year so far is?? Well, it WAS Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles....not anymore. And this trailer hasn't even been out a WEEK yet. Fifty Shades of Grey! The clip has racked up 36.4 million views on YouTube since it was released last Thursday. And in case you are one of the few who haven't seen it yet, here ya go. Enjoy!

Last week, ARETHA FRANKLIN hit up a Johnny Rockets in the Niagara Falls area after a gig.  And she almost engaged in FISTICUFFS with one of the employees.  Here's what happened: 
 Aretha ordered a meal TO GO . . . but apparently, she was too hungry to wait, and once she got her food, she sat down at one of the tables inside to eat it. A server SCOLDED Aretha for doing that, telling her she wasn't allowed to eat takeout inside.  Aretha says the worker was, quote, "very rude, unprofessional and nasty."  She stormed out without finishing her meal. The owner of that Johnny Rockets says he's sorry, and called the worker a, quote, "new and very young employee."  Apparently, the employee won't be fired, but was REMINDED about the "takeout policies." Aretha is moving on.  She says, quote, "Over the years I have always enjoyed a burger and cherry Coke.  This experience will not stop my enjoyment of burgers and cherry Cokes, and talking to the classy and friendly people at Johnny Rockets."

Last year, CHUBBY CHECKER, the man behind "The Twist", sued the makers of a mobile app called "The Chubby Checker," which claimed to estimate the size of a man's JUNK based on his shoe size. He was asking for $500 MILLION in damages. Now, Chubby has settled out of court.  The terms haven't been disclosed, but the app hasn't been available for purchase since the lawsuit was filed.
 It's probably a safe bet that Chubby didn't get anywhere NEAR $500 million . . . because the app only sold 84 downloads in the two years it was available, at 99-cents a pop.  So in other words, this was an $83.16 operation.

Rihanna got a bit of unwanted attention this weekend in the form of a homeless man who stalked and threatened the "Diamonds" singer. The 53-year-old man, identified as Kevin McGlynn, reportedly turned up at Rih Rih's multi-million dollar apartment twice on July 8 and again on July 11 to deliver threatening letters, the New York Daily News reports. Cops found his name when he dropped his benefits card with his name and address on it. McGlynn has been arrrested on charges of stalking and harassment. According to the criminal complaint, McGlynn repeatedly called Rihanna a "bi**h" and threatened to "bum rush" her apartment. He also posted several letters to her California residence.

Also, The Bachelorette finale is tonight and Andy is down to just Nick and Josh. WHO ON EARTH WILL SHE CHOOSE?? Honestly, I don't care. I won't be watching. I will, however, be watching Running Wild with Bear Grylls. WHY, YOU ASK? Because it's the episode with ZAC EFFRON and he'll be shirtless, alot. Enough said. The End.

It's here!! "The Fifty Shades of Grey" movie trailer came out yesterday and if you haven't seen it yet you're crazy. Personally, it fits exactly what I pictured in my tiny little perverted brain while reading the books. Meanwhile, the news always wants the answer to this question: Would you want your parents to see this movie? Her parents are Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson. She said nope. The movie comes out on Valentine's Day.

A source says Robin Thicke is done begging his wife Paula Patton to forgive him, and has decided to move on. An attorney is already working on a financial settlement. One thing Robin is firm on, though, is that he won't be the one to file for divorce. 

Charlize Theron was spotted wearing a ring on her engagement finger, which would suggest that Sean Penn proposed, and she said yes. But that might not be the case. E! Online says Charlize's new piece of jewelry is an 18-karat yellow gold Anita Ko Leaf Ring, which sells for $4,900. And that would be on the cheap side as celebrity engagement rings go.

Britney Spears left her dermatologist's office yesterday with some pamphlets including one for Zerona, which is a laser fat removal treatment. But there's no indication that she's having anything done. She sure doesn't look like she needs any fat removed. Check out the current picture of her leaving the office RIGHT HERE and see if you agree.

Three months after Big Sean ended their engagement, Naya Rivera has already married another guy. He's an actor you've never heard of named Ryan Dorsey. They got married in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico this past Saturday. They'd been friends for years, but didn't start hooking up until after Naya and Sean broke up. Here's where it gets weird: Saturday was actually the day Naya and Sean were supposed to get married, but she may not have done it to spite him because it's also Ryan's birthday. But it gets weirdererer...she wore the dress that she was supposed to wear when she married Sean AND we heard she even used the same damn ring. Duuuuude. That's messed up. Check out some WEDDING PICTURES HERE!

In the Big Fat Rumor of the Day, this isn't official yet, but everybody is reporting that Zoe Saldana is pregnant. If it's true, this will be the first child for Zoe and her husband Marco Perego. "Us Weekly" says she's at least three months along. 

Jessica Biel is coming to "New Girl" on Fox and she'll guest star as the "hottest scientist in the world." She will play an obstacle in Zooey Deschanel's mission to get lucky at a edding. That's right. Jess and Nick aren't getting back together any time soon! But there is hope, according to boss Liz Meriweather. Meanwhile, Ellen DeGeneres broke some news by hitting up Twitter. She said, "So annoying when people brag on twitter & that's why I'm not tweeting that Portia just signed on to do a top secret arc on "Scandal". Oops." An ABC rep confirms Portia Di Rossi will appear in "Scandal's" upcoming season - it premiers September 25th.

Adele's one-year-old son Angelo James Konecki just won five figures in damages after the paparazzi photographed some private moments. Her lawyer said she had made it clear since the boy's birth that she never wanted Angelo to be "public property." In addition to the five-figure sum, as part of the settlement, Corbis Images UK agreed to never sell the photos again. The money will be held in a trust for Angelo, who turns two in October.

It's down to the final two on "The Bachelor" and no, not on Andi's season of "The Bachelorette" - we know Andi will hopefully accept Nick or Josh's proposal on Monday night, but we're already looking ahead to the next Bachelor. No surprise that Chris the farmer is one choice, but we have to go back to Emily Maynard's season to find bachelor number two. Arie Luyendyk Jr. was the runner-up when Emily chose Jef Holm. Who's your pick? Arie Luyendyk, Jr. or Chris Soules? "They are looking for the anti-Juan Pablo," says one source close to production. "Definitely want a really nice guy this time around."

Cameron Diaz and Jason Segal were doing a promo tour for "Sex Tape" and they were being interviewed by a show in Austrailia when she cut the interview short. The host brought up Drew Barrymore's battle with drugs and considering that's Cam's BFF, she wasn't amused. But it got worse because he immediately mentioned her typically private relationship with her boyfriend Benji Madden. Cameron said, "We're having to go now. Sorry, they're wrapping us up." And that was the end of the interview.

If Robin Thicke's begging ever works, and he actually gets back together with Paula Patton, they'll be living somewhere new because their Bel Air home is officially on the market. Neither Paula or Robin has officially moved out of the 2-story home, but they haven't slept under the same roof since separating in February.

During an episode of his YouTube show, Snoop Dogg tells guest Jimmy Kimmel that he smoked pot in a White House bathroom. He was there for a visit and asked to use the restroom and he says they asked if it was number one or number two. He claimed it was a number two, but that he needed to light a candle. Watch what he says he really did...

The beard that Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson wears in the upcoming "Hercules" movie wasn't his own, obviously. But it was real hair. Just not human hair. It was yak hair. Like the animal, yak. And if the thought of gluing yak hair to your face grosses you out, just wait until we get more specific. Yesterday on "Live with Kelly and Michael", The Rock said he asked his beard guy what kind of hair it was, and he told him it was yak. But when he asked what part of the yak it came from, the guy told him the testicles. Yes, The Rock had yak pubes glued to his face during the making of this movie. Why the pubes? Because they're the softest hairs on the yak. Eww!!

Lana Del Rey has a song called "F***ed My Way Up to the Top" but it's not exactly autobiographical. In an interview she says, "You know, I have slept with a lot of guys in the industry, but none of them helped me get my record deals. Which is annoying."

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West reportedly spent $500,000 on a decoy for their daughter North. They actually held a casting call so they could find a baby who looks enough like North to throw off photographers. They also hired another woman for North's nanny, all so the real kid won't get harassed by the paparazzi. Tom Cruise and ex-wife Katie Holmes were also said to have hired decoys to keep photographers at bay.

Kanye West had a cameo in "Anchorman 2", but he actually tried to work with Will Ferrell earlier than that. He tried out for the 2008 basketball comedy "Semi Pro". The part actually went to  Andre Benjamin from Outkast because Kanye's audition was reportedly pretty bad. Someone's trying to sell video of it to various media outlets. It hasn't hit the web yet, but a couple of pictures have. Kanye showed up in a giant afro wig. Check out the PICTURES HERE!

There's a new song from the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" soundtrack called "Shell Shocked" by Juicy J, Wiz Khalifa, and Ty Dolla $ign.

Justin Bieber risked violating his probation after police responded to noise complaints at his Beverly Hills condo six times over the weekend. Cops received four separate calls regarding loud music and rooftop partying late Saturday night and early Sunday morning. The other two complaints involved fans and paparazzi. Bieber was not cited for the complaints because he agreed to turn the music down. If Biebs, who is serving two years probation for egging his neighbor's house, had been cited, it might have been considered a violation of his probation, which could mean jail time.

This kind of vampire cross-pollination could be dangerous:  "Twilight" minx Nikki Reed is apparently dating "Vampire Diaries" star Ian Somerhalder. Interestingly, Nikki and Ian used to double date when they were in relationships with Paul McDonald and Nina Dobrev, respectively.

You're not gonna believe this, but the people behind dating site eHarmony have hired Limp Bizkit frontman, Fred Durst, to direct three commercials for the site. Fred said, "It was a really amazing experience. The chemistry was perfect right off the bat. I'd definitely be open to doing something else if they wanted me to."

This year's ceremony goes down on Sunday, August 24th. Voting is open now at VMA.MTV.com.

The 12th and final season of "Two and a Half Men" premieres in October. Although, the "half man" thing doesn't really apply anymore, because Angus T. Jones is gone. But maybe they'll be picking up a new half. Yesterday, the chairman of CBS told reporters that Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer might get gay married this season, so they can adopt a kid. In the premiere, Ashton's character, Walden, has a health scare that makes him realize he wants kids. And when he can't adopt one on his own, he proposes to Alan so they can adopt a kid as a fake gay couple. We don't know if Alan says yes though.

Someone posted a video on YouTube of Kanye West rapping at a record store event in New York in August 1996 when he was just 19 years old. He was completely unknown at the time. 

"Big Bang Theory" season 8 could be delayed over a contract dispute. The entire original cast is still without contracts. They earned $350,000 per episode last season. The show earned $3 billion. They now think they're worth a million each. Taping is supposed to begin July 30th. 

Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow caused a paparazzi frenzy this week when they had a mini "Friends" reunion over dinner at Craig's restaurant in Los Angeles. Photographers swarmed Aniston's chauffeured Mercedes as it left the scene, causing her driver to scrape a pole and damage the car. Cox and Kudrow, who drove separate vehicles, were able to leave the premises with their cars unscathed — despite the over-the-top paparazzi attention.

Tim McGraw swatted a woman in the head who ripped his jeans while he was performing Sunday in Atlanta. One report even said that she smacked at his junk. Tim was performing "Truck Yeah" and interacting with fans when a woman suddenly swatted the area close to his junk. She may have landed one because he seems to start yelling at her, although you can't hear what he says. He quickly turns away but then she grabs at the preexisting hole in his jeans and rips them even more. That's when he reacts. He knocks her hand back and then smacks the top of her head. You can see her hair fly in the video.
