‘Chuck’: Where have all the missions gone?

It’s never fun having to wait for a new episode of “Chuck.”

The show didn’t air last week because of the 2-hour return of “The Event," and apparently, the show’s producers weren't fond of the wait either.

Luckily, they have a creative outlet for that annoyance.

Jon Bon Jovi: Steve Jobs is killing the music business

Don't expect to see Jon Bon Jovi rocking out with an iPod — the singer claims digital downloads are destroying the music industry.

"Steve Jobs is personally responsible for killing the music business," he says of the Apple co-founder in an interview with the Sunday Times Magazine.

The Bon Jovi frontman believes that music fans nowadays are missing out on the fun of actually going into a record store and picking a disc based on album art and just a few previously heard tunes.

'Bachelor' Brad picks a mate, but will it last?

The second time was indeed the charm for Brad Womack, who proposed marriage to Emily Maynard on last night's season finale of "The Bachelor.”

But the real fireworks occurred on the "After the Final Rose" special, courtesy of two startling admissions.

First, host Chris Harrison announced that the original plan for the "Final Rose" ceremony was for Brad and Emily to get married on the Caribbean island of Anguilla, where a previous "Bachelor" episode took place.

Mel Gibson is a granddad

Embattled actor Mel Gibson recently received some good news: he's become a grandfather again.

Gibson's daughter Hannah, who is married to blues guitarist Kenny Wayne Shepherd, delivered a son over the weekend. Shepherd's rep confirms to CNN, "Hannah and Kenny did indeed have a baby boy Saturday night."

This is the third grandchild for Gibson, who is father to eight kids, including 1-year-old Lucia, his daughter with ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva.

As CNN previously reported, the troubled star recently was sentenced to three years probation and a year-long anger management counseling program relating to a prior incident involving Grigorieva.

Channing Tatum not doing 'Bodyguard' with Rihanna

Channing Tatum is shooting down rumors that he'll team up with Rihanna for the upcoming remake of "The Bodyguard." In fact, up until recently, the actor wasn't even aware that his name was attached to the project.

“No, really?" Tatum replied when a BBC Radio 1 interviewer asked him about the casting reports last week. "I wouldn’t not do that, but I don’t know. I mean, Rihanna is hot — I would definitely guard that body — but I’m not sure about doing 'The Bodyguard.'"

As Marquee previously reported, the remake of the 1992 Kevin Costner-Whitney Houston drama about a Secret Service Agent protecting a singer is being given a more modern twist. This time, it's an Iraq war vet keeping the diva out of danger, and thanks to technology like Twitter, Google Maps and TMZ, that won't be easy.

Which stars would you like to see in the revamped version of "The Bodyguard"?
