Checking in to 'Bachelor Pad'

Last night's premiere of "Bachelor Pad" began with host Chris Harrison expressing shock that some former "Bachelor" and "Bachelorette" contestants have found love and started families.

However, there are some former contestants who are still single, looking for love and desperate to stretch their 15 seconds of fame out for as long as they possibly can. Those are the people who have ended up on "Bachelor Pad."

Nineteen contestants have agreed to return to the stately "Bachelor" manor to compete for $250,000 in cash. Unlike previous seasons, the contestants share one bedroom full of bunk beds. Welcome to Camp "Bachelor Pad."

Reese Witherspoon as Peggy Lee?

It looks like Reese Witherspoon will need to warm up her pipes once again.

The actress, who won an Oscar in 2005 for her portrayal of June Carter in “Walk the Line," is in talks to play the legendary singer and performer Peggy Lee, according to Variety.

Lee rose to fame in the 1940’s, and went on to record a number of hit albums and songs, including “Is That All There Is?”

Witherspoon is already on board as producer of the project, along with Marc Platt, whom the 34-year-old actress worked with on the “Legally Blonde” franchise. Witherspoon secured the rights to Lee’s story from her estate after meeting with Lee’s granddaughter.

Nora Ephron, who is reportedly a fan of Lee's, will write the script and direct.

Justin Bieber hit with water bottle during performance

Justin Bieber has clearly made Beliebers out of many, many people, but perhaps it wasn't always that way.

When Bieber was performing at a concert in Sacramento in December, 2009, an errant water bottle came sailing through the air, hitting the 16-year-old star in the head, as shown in a video that was recently posted online. (Whoever threw that has a serious arm.)

It’s unclear why the concert attendee felt the need to pelt the kid with a plastic container of water – did he look thirsty? – especially since Bieber, at the time, was expressing how his love for the fans gathered.

The 16-year-old pop phenomenon joined Usher in Atlanta Friday for the first annual World Leadership Awards, and noted that the 31-year-old star has been a role model on his road to success.

“It’s amazing, you know, you gotta have a mentor—you gotta have someone to look up to, so you can better yourself,” Bieber said. “I’m glad to be here and support my mentor,” he added.
