Did you name your kid Bentley last year?

Reality TV seems to be leaving its mark on a newborn generation. According to Time, it looks like MTV's hit "Teen Mom" is doubling as a baby name book.

The first name of “16 & Pregnant” and then “Teen Mom” star Maci Bookout and the name of her son, Bentley, had the two biggest jumps in popularity this year, although they didn't quite make it into the top 10.

The names that did, however, could have easily been pulled from the “Twilight Saga."

David Hasselhoff's ex to carry a baby for Zsa Zsa Gabor?

File this one under "weird but true Hollywood stories": David Hasselhoff's ex-wife is considering carrying a child for 94-year-old screen legend Zsa Zsa Gabor.

Pamela Bach-Hasselhoff confirms to Radar Online that Gabor's husband, Prince Frederic von Anhalt, has approached her about being a surrogate mom for the couple, who are desperate to have a child. What's more, she is seriously thinking about taking them up on their offer.

"They have expressed how they would be honored to have my genes for their child," says the 47-year-old actress, who has two children with former husband Hasselhoff. "As they've told me, Zsa Zsa and Frederic regard me as one of the most beautiful women they know, alongside Grace Kelly and Bo Derek."

'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Does controversy overshadow Gaga's talent?

Gaga’s brand-new controversial video for her single “Judas” has finally been released. There has been a lot of speculation about how shocking and potentially offensive it would be. In the video, Gaga stars as Mary Magdalene leading a motorcycle gang on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem.

When I interviewed Bill Donahue, President of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, back in April, I asked him what his issue with the “Judas” song was. (I can only imagine what he thinks of the video today!)

Donahue told me, “I’m not going to sit here and pretend she doesn’t know what she’s trying to do. I mean, look, it’s not the worst thing in the world. But she’s trying to tweak Catholic sensibilities. Let her try it on Muslims and see what she does then at that point.”

You know it's a wild episode of "The Big Bang Theory" when Sheldon's creation of a bizarre three-person chess game is the least crazy thing to happen.

Thursday night's show continued to hint at some sort of reconciliation between Penny and Leonard in the not-too-distant future. Or at the very least, a breakup between Leonard and Priya.

This time, Amy Farrah Fowler decided to assist Penny in getting revenge on Priya for an innocuous remark about Penny's struggling acting career, with Bernadette playing the role of a spy, while on a double date.
