NBC wants Gervais back for the Golden Globes

Back in January, Ricky Gervais made headlines when he hosted the Golden Globes, and proceeded to take shots at many of the Hollywood stars in attendance, not to mention the awards themselves.

Gervais went on record as saying that this second time hosting would be his last, but that doesn't mean he's not wanted by the network that put on the show.

Gervais told E! that NBC is interested in having him back for a third time as host, but he said, "I think the Hollywood Foreign Press would need an awful lot of persuading." FULL POST

The couple’s daughter Lucia was born in October 2009. By April 2010, they made their separation public.

After a January 2010 fight with Grigorieva, Gibson was charged with misdemeanor domestic battery. He pleaded no contest earlier this year. The case blew up after racist and sexist rants by Gibson were recorded and leaked to RadarOnline.com.

Celebs make up for Gaga's tame VMA look with eccentric outfits

From her red lace mask and hat in 2009, to her meat dress in 2010 – it’s no wonder #Whatwillgagawear was trending on Twitter before the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards kicked-off on Sunday night.

This time around, Lady Gaga didn’t shock viewers with blood-spattered lingerie, or a hat that wouldn’t make it past airport security. Instead, Gaga donned a pair of black slacks and a white T-Shirt as her musical alter ego, Joe Calderone.

Ironically, it was the most street-friendly outfit we’ve seen her sport. But, not to worry, these celebs dressed crazy enough to make up for Gaga’s tamer look:

But Pitt, a real-life hero, swooped in and brought her to her feet.

'Entourage': 'When things get ugly, all bets are off'

I’d like to start this recap with a quote from Turtle circa season one: “I don’t know about the after life, but this life is sweeeet.”

That was 2004.

Seven years later, our boys have grown up. Last night’s “The Big Bang” (co-written by Jerry Ferrara) taught us that, for better or worse, these guys aren’t the same crew who spent off-days looking for weed at Val Kilmer’s house.

Burning down the house on 'True Blood'

Chaos ensued this week after Antonia's vampire minions descended on the crowd at the Tolerance Hoedown with the sole purpose of killing Bill.

When it looked like Eric might actually do it, Sookie zapped him with a double shot of her fairy fists of fury. She not only saved Bill, but reversed both the spells Eric was under.

So, huzzah! Eric's back. Celebrate accordingly.
