Fans hold vigil for Kim K's marriage at Dash store

Kim Kardashian's split from Kris Humphries is taking a toll on the former newlyweds, as well as their fans.

An ad posted to Craigslist on October 31 – the day Kardashian filed for divorce – called for distraught fans of the unhappy couple to meet in front of the Dash store in New York City at 4:15 that afternoon.

The attendees (who, amazingly, weren’t too busy occupying Wall Street to arrive at the vigil) showed up with candles, flowers, magazine covers and signs to mourn the end of the 72-day marriage.

Sports fans hate on Nickelback... again

It seems Nickelback’s nasally rock ballads just don’t sit well with sports fans.

Supporters of the Detroit Lions are the latest to protest a possible performance by the Canadian band. (The Winnipeg Free Press published an open letter to the National Hockey League in August when word spread that Nickelback would play at its Face-Off festival.)

The band is reportedly slated to perform during halftime at Ford Field, when the Lions take on the Green Bay Packers Thanksgiving Day. But a whole lot of Lions fans/Nickelback haters have signed an online petition begging the National Football League to reconsider.

Jessica Biel: I wish I'd landed 'Notebook' role

As with love, life as an actor means always having that one that got away. And for Jessica Biel, it sounds like it was the lead role of Allie from "The Notebook," which ended up going to Rachel McAdams.

Ryan Gosling, memorably, played her paramour from the wrong side of town, Noah.

Biel, 29, tells Elle magazine in its December issue, "'The Notebook'...That's one I wanted so badly. I was in the middle of shooting 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre,' and I auditioned with Ryan Gosling in my trailer - covered in blood."

Jennifer Lawrence: 'Hunger Games' isn't 'Twilight'

Cam picks up a woman on 'Modern Family'

Yes, you read that headline correctly.

It seems that Cam (VIP of the week) is convinced that if he were straight, he and Julia Roberts would be dating. After a waitress on the hunt for tips got flirtatious with him (the "drink-a-doodle-doo" was a dead giveaway to his sexuality, said Mitchell), he wanted to prove to Mitchell that he could pick up a woman.

At first, things seemed to be going well with a woman he met at a bar (played by the wonderful Leslie Mann, best known for "Knocked Up").
