Kim K. and Justin Bieber spotted together - again

Things might get a bit frosty between Justin Bieber fans and Kim Kardashian, since the 29-year-old E! reality star was spotted with the 16-year-old pop idol at an L.A. Pinkberry yesterday.

Kardashian first upset true Beliebers in May, receiving death threats when she tweeted that she had “Bieber fever” and the tween dream –- who admits to having a crush on the curvy brunette - jokingly referred to her as his “girlfriend” following their May meeting at the 2010 White House Correspondents Dinner.

At the time, the 5-foot-6 singer assured fans that Kardashian was just “a very sexy friend.”

Injury isn't stopping Jon Bon Jovi

During a hometown concert on Friday at New Meadowlands Stadium, Jon Bon Jovi somehow injured himself and ended up with a torn calf muscle (ouch!) near the end of the performance.

But the damaged leg didn’t slow the legendary rocker down - 'cause, you know, he was already halfway there - and rolled right on with the set, closing the two-and-a-half hour show with everyone’s favorite song to sing along with as loudly as possible,“Living on a Prayer.”

“The injury won’t prevent Bon Jovi from playing any of their upcoming stadium dates this summer,” a spokesperson for the band said. The tour's next stop will be in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, on Monday.

'True Blood' gets back to business

Editor’s Note: This post contains spoilers for the Sunday, July 11, episode of HBO’s “True Blood.”

When we last gathered ‘round the TV to catch up with Bon Temps’ sexy assortment of supernaturals and conflicted mortals, we found ourselves wading waist-deep in the ongoing plot exposition of this season’s too many new characters and storylines.

But last night, we finally got down to business and settled into the “True Blood” we love and ignore our husbands for.

So, after an attempt to gather intelligence on Bill’s whereabouts ended in an angry snarl of leather and hair product, we find Sookie tending to the physical and emotional wounds of Alcide, who continues to pine for his former fiancée – the as-yet-unseen Debbie Pelt. Debbie, as it turns out, has moved on, and is to be betrothed to Operation Werewolfer - and Bill-kidnapper - Coot.

'Entourage' is back with that old familiar magic

Welcome back "Entourage" fans! Let's jump right in.

As business-like (and generally "meh") as last week's season premiere episode was, this week's show was a fast-paced party that delivered a nice dose of that old familiar magic. (Wait a minute....did I just make the first two episodes of the new season of "Entourage" sound like a mullet haircut?)

In last week's blog, I took a moment to list some items I wanted larger doses of this season while also mentioning a few things of which I could see less. Apparently, the same HBO gods that delivered my Ari Gold, "we're going to hell, so bring your sunblock," screen saver also heard my cry, and saw fit to grant me more Shauna Roberts!
