Ricky Gervais may host the Golden Globes again

Apparently Ricky Gervais wasn't too offensive at the Golden Globes earlier this year, because the New York Post claims that the hilarious Brit’s been asked back.

As the host of this year's Globes ceremony, Gervais let loose on Hollywood with some harsh jokes, but in the end, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association enjoyed the program.

The organization said in a statement in January that the "HFPA would never condone some of his personal remarks," although they did add, "We loved the show. It was a lot of fun and obviously has a lot of people talking. When you hire a comedian like Ricky Gervais, one expects in your face, sometimes outrageous material."

Brett Ratner: Yeah, I hooked up with Olivia Munn

Entertainment Weekly reports that "Tower Heist" director Brett Ratner has copped to being the Hollywood hot shot Olivia Munn mentions sleeping with in her memoir.

But while the filmmaker admits that he hooked up with Munn, he says he didn’t pleasure himself with shrimp fat, as the book alleges.

On last night’s episode of G4’s “Attack of the Show” (which Olivia used to be on), host Kevin Pereira brought up the rumor that Ratner is actually the director from Munn’s book, "Suck It, Wonder Woman!: The Misadventures of a Hollywood Geek.”

While you were working...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • Will it be a baby girl for Jay-Z and Beyonce? Kelly Rowland's quote to press while working a red carpet in London seems to hit that could be true. According to Rowland, "Jay is going to buy that little girl everything possible." [MTV]
  • Speaking of babies: This Bieber baby drama doesn't look like it's going to end as quickly as Biebs probably hopes. Mariah Yeater, the woman who claims she had the 17-year-old singer's baby three months ago, allegedly told her ex that he was the father, at first. [NYPost]
  • So, there was lip syncing on "X Factor" last night, specifically from one Mr. Leroy Bell, and Fox is being open about it. "For the group ensemble performance, the vocals are pre-recorded to allow the acts to concentrate on preparing for their own live competitive performances." They add that other competitions, like "Idol," do the same thing. Basically, it's all lies people. All lies. [EW]
  • What has heretofore been known as "That Other Snow White Movie - No, Not The One With The Girl From 'Twilight,'" now has an actual title. Relativity Media's "Mirror, Mirror," starring Lily Collins, Armie Hammer, Julia Roberts and Nathan Lane, is scheduled to arrive on March 16, 2012. [THR]
  • It looks like the firing can go both ways. In the same week CNN confirmed Hilary Swank had dropped some members of her team following the contested Chechnya event she attended - including her manager and friend of eight years - comes news that the Oscar winner herself was dropped by her PR firm. [EW]

Many surprises still in store for 'Chuck'

Many surprises still in store for 'Chuck'

[Editor's Note: There are a few spoilers for the season in this post. Be forewarned!]

There are only 12 episodes remaining before "Chuck" goes off into that good night (including one airing tonight), but that doesn't mean there aren't plenty of twists and turns still to come, at least according to executive producer Chris Fedak.

"Each episode will change," Fedak told reporters on Wednesday. "From the episode that comes on Friday night, we will end in a far different place than where we began, and by the end of [next week's episode], things will have changed again. So it’s like this season, every episode will be different, and by the end of each episode, the dynamic and the core dynamic of the show will be changing."

So far, this has definitely been a season of change, with Morgan as the "intersect" and Chuck relying more and more on his computer geek skills (and no, Fedak won't say if Chuck ends up getting it back).

'Voice's' Adam Levine: I'm not worried about 'Idol,' 'X Factor'

In its first season, "The Voice" actually lived up to its promise of paying more attention to vocal talent than anything else. Those who made it through to the live competition included a 40-something woman rocking the bald look, an "Idol" cast-off and the winner, Javier Colon.

For its second season, mentor Christina Aguilera says they're trying to be even more inclusive.

"The diversity is so extreme," Aguilera told CNN. "I have an opera singer who is really great and will knock your socks off, [and] a dynamite MC. No joke. It's really fun and interesting this year.”

Is Miss Piggy losing weight?

As evidenced in the November issue of InStyle magazine, Miss Piggy is still as fabulous as ever after more than three decades in show business.

But - and feel free to call us crazy - she's looking slightly more svelte than we remember in a new commercial for Alamo rental cars. Maybe it was the dress, the bangs, the angle of the camera, or her snackcercise routine. Or maybe our memories are faulty.

Take a look and let us know what you think - either way, she's still the flyest pig in the industry, as evidenced from these clips of the Muppet diva through the years:
