What ever happened to Baby Skeeter?

If you grew up watching Jim Henson's "Muppet Babies", surely you wondered what became of Skeeter, the tomboy twin sister of Scooter and the only other girl in the nursery besides Baby Piggy.

You can breathe easy now because Skeeter's back!

Grown-up Skeeter can be found among the pages of "The Muppet Show" comic books, whose current series features her return. The comic, produced by Boom! Media, debuted last year. Each issue is a print edition of a "Muppet Show" episode, complete with skits, musical acts, backstage drama and production meetings.

Nadya Suleman: Only you can prevent pets from becoming Octomoms

Nadya SulemanBreaking: Nadya Suleman has accepted PETA’s offer to display a banner encouraging pet owners to spay or neuter their dogs or cats in exchange for $5,000 and a month’s supply of veggie dogs and veggie burgers, the animal rights organization has announced.

The offer was extended to Suleman’s lawyer Jeff Czech back in March, when the mother of 14 was facing home foreclosure after missing a $450,000 payment.

While Czech said he was offended the organization compared Suleman to a cat - in the press release sent to CNN, the organization said: “Who better to push the message 'Don't Let Your Dog or Cat Become an 'Octomom'...' than "Octomom" herself, Nadya Suleman?" – Czech said Suleman was open to the idea if the price was right.

Apparently it was. Suleman will “personally unveil” the banner with the message “Don't Let Your Dog or Cat Become an 'Octomom'—Always Spay or Neuter" tomorrow at her home in La Habra, California, at 11 a.m.

Megan Fox: I hate being told I'm talented

Megan FoxA few things about Megan Fox Allure magazine would like you to know: She's self-aware; she hates compliments (please, don’t tell her she’s talented; it feels forced); and those sexual innuendos in interviews weren’t cries for attention but rather attempts at satire.

“I was really open when I first started, trying to be light-hearted and have a sense of humor and engage in some sort of satire sometimes,” Fox said in the interview. “It did backfire to a certain extent…I still have the same sense of humor, but no desire to express it, really.”

But as Fox tries to lessen the amount of potential ammo the public can use to harp on her sexuality, others keep putting it front and center, like whomever snapped a photo of her topless while on set for an upcoming indie, “Passion Play.”

Shia LaBeouf admits he dropped the ball on 'Indiana Jones'

If anything, Shia LaBeouf is honest.

The 23-year-old told reporters at the Cannes International Film Festival that the last time he starred in a sequel, 2008’s “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,” he dropped the ball.

True, the flick earned $787 million worldwide, a blockbuster by studio standards, but there were problems with it, LaBeouf said, and that challenged him when he took on another popular film sequel, this year’s “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.”

Blake Lively's 'swell life' is in 'Vogue'

Blake LivelyAt 22, Blake Lively already has another Vogue cover under her belt: The “Gossip Girl” actress graces the magazine’s June issue just a year after she snagged the Vogue cover shot in February of 2009.

Lively, who spent part of her childhood in California, took a break from filming “Green Lantern” in New Orleans and headed to La Jolla, California with writer Hamish Bowles to catch some waves.

Although Lively may seem to be the epitome of a surfer girl, she'd only picked up a board once before at the age of 13 to surf at Manhattan Beach, and she walked away from it with a bloody nose. But, she was still game to suit up for Vogue - and spill a few (really, just a few) deets about her new movie.

“I’m going to be the coolest aunt ever,” Lively said of her role as Carol Ferris in the upcoming Martin Campbell film based on the DC Comics superhero. “All I want is to be a hero to my nephews and nieces.”
