While you were working...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • Forget what you've heard: Adele has posted an item on her blog denying that she's been romancing a married man. "This is the first and last time I will comment on the details of my relationship with Simon," Adele writes. "Contrary to reports and headlines in the press today, Simon is divorced and has been for four years." [Adele.Tv]
  • Age is clearly nothing but a number for Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart. Lopez retweeted this statement posted by her rumored beau last night: "Age, status, n opinions of others are irrelevant. Our hearts are endless and our souls infinite....Our ages are mere reminders of the hours logged on this earth and the precious time remaining.....We should all honor our time here by indulging our passion and dreams. So, close your ears and open your hearts; Love and be happy!" [Jennifer Lopez's Twitter]
  • Although the Internet may have led you to believe it, it seems Jay-Z never said that he would stop using the word "b***h" in his lyrics since he's now the proud father of baby Blue Ivy. The man may have 99 problems, but a....well, you know the rest. [Rolling Stone]
  • While everyone flips out about the young actress who plays Lily on "Modern Family" not-actually-saying the "F" word on tonight's episode, THR has helpfully rounded up all the other s*** Lily has said. [THR]
  • Logo's lined up a U.S. premiere of the second special of "Absolutely Fabulous" - it's the 20th anniversary of the series this year, dahhhling - on February 6 at 10:30 p.m. ET.
  • So here's the thing: "The Artist," funnily enough, isn't what you'd call a "talker." Unfortunately, that little tidbit failed to make it across the pond, where some moviegoers are demanding refunds because of the lack of dialogue. [Telegraph]
  • And last but not least in couple news, Rihanna and Chris Brown are rumored to have been "secretly hooking up"....for the past year. [Us Weekly]

'Glee' casts Rachel Berry's dads

After weathering the disappointment that Elton John reportedly wasn't available to play one of Rachel Berry's dads, Gleeks had a reason to perk up on Wednesday.

TVLine reports that Tony-winning Broadway star Brian Stokes Mitchell and "Law & Order: Criminal Intent's" Jeff Goldblum will portray Hiram and LeRoy Berry, the couple who adopted and raised Lea Michele's character Rachel.

We won't have to wait long to see them in action, either - the Berry dads will make their first appearance in the February 14 episode of "Glee," and they're expected to sing.

Is Emily Maynard the new 'Bachelorette'?

Reports are circulating that Emily Maynard, 25, will return to reality TV to try and find love once again.

According to People magazine, the single mom was hesitant to sign on,  but "The Bachelorette" is rumored to be relocating production to her hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina. If that were to happen, she could potentially do the show without being away from her daughter.

Maynard has already fallen in love on the ABC franchise, as she won season 15 of "The Bachelor" and was briefly engaged to Brad Womack.

'X Factor's' Chris Rene, Astro, Marcus Canty sign with Epic

As we've learned from more than one reality competition over the past few years, just because you don't win the grand prize doesn't mean you're going to lose out on a shot at a singing career.

Although "X Factor's" Chris Rene was a runner-up to the show's first season winner Melanie Amaro, he's joining the singer at Epic Records nonetheless, a rep from the label tells CNN.

"I've dreamt about this moment my whole life," Rene has told Entertainment Weekly. "And now it's here. Working with L.A. Reid - 'Big Homie' - is a dream come true."

'Glee' returns with NeNe...and a cliffhanger

"Glee" returned on Tuesday night with reality star NeNe Leakes, Helen Mirren's voice (which provided Becky's internal monologue), and not one but two proposals - the last of which ended in a cliffhanger.

(If you're nervous about spoilers, you should stop reading now.)

Let's start with Leakes' character, Roz Washington, the synchronized swim coach who is just as vocal as Leakes is on her Bravo reality show.

Snooki: Trump for president, please

Snooki: Trump for president, please

If you're unenthusiastic about the options available for the 2012 presidential nomination, Snooki feels your pain.

As she relayed at a recent press conference - for the launch of Team Snooki Boxing, the Huffington Post tells us - she's unimpressed. The guy she wants to put her "Jersey Shore" influence behind (millions of people do watch her pickles-and-booze-fueled antics on the reality show, after all, although less at the start of the fifth season than usual) isn't even a contender.

Not at the moment, anyway.
