After saying he simply couldn't "pretend" anymore that the CBS sitcom and his replacement Ashton Kutcher aren't both awful, Sheen is apologizing...just to Ashton, of course. [E!]
  • Jennifer Aniston has had an "aha!" moment, and without the aid of Oprah Winfrey: Nude scenes, it turns out, are "liberating"! [People]
  • We've seen so many snapshots of cute celebrity couples doing adorable things that even a photo of Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel having a date at a baby animal petting zoo would leave us unmoved. This photo of Jay-Z and Beyonce giggling at a Knicks game, however, is an exception: [PopDust]
  • Justin Bieber, at the ripe age of 17, already has enough life experiences and wisdom to pen a follow-up book to his best-selling 2010 tome. [Us Weekly]

Darlene Love: Bobbi Kristina is with family

Following Whitney Houston's home going service on Saturday, a number of reports have focused on Bobbi Kristina's whereabouts and well-being.

Whitney Houston's rep isn't commenting on the chatter, but Houston's godmother Darlene Love did clear up a rumor that the family was unable to locate Bobbi Kristina for a period of time after Saturday's service.

"She was with us, she was with the family the whole time," Love said in an interview with Access Hollywood. "Everybody went to a restaurant. We call [the event] after the funeral...a repast, where everyone goes to sit and talk and eat. And she was there...she's been with the family these last couple of days. We all know where she is, she's not missing."

'Shame' director: Actor snubbed because America's afraid of sex

'Shame' director: Actor snubbed because America's afraid of sex

Michael Fassbender's turn in "Shame" was one of the resounding snubs from this year's Academy Award nominations, and the film's director, Steve McQueen, believes the prudes could be to blame.

Fassbender stars in the film as a sex addict, a part that required him to spend screen time in the buff. His performance in the "harrowing drama" was "mesmerizing," Entertainment Weekly said of the Oscars oversight, and cemented Fassbender as "one of the biggest breakout stars of 2011."

Director McQueen agreed that Fassbender had been overlooked by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, reportedly telling the Press Association, "In America, they're too scared of sex, that's why he wasn't nominated. If you look at the best actor list, you're saying, 'Michael Fassbender is not on the list?'"

'Bodyguard' musical coming to London

Hollywood was said to be working on a modern take of "The Bodyguard" before star Whitney Houston's passing, and it appears the 1992 film will also be turned into a musical.

According to the U.K.'s Guardian, a stage version of the story has been in the works since last year, and producers are now said to be preparing the musical to arrive in London's West End in November.

Tony and Grammy winner Heather Headley will reportedly star as Rachel Marron - the role Houston famously played opposite Kevin Costner in '92.

Ben tours America on 'The Bachelor'

It's "hometown date" week on "The Bachelor," which means on Monday's episode, Ben traveled around the country to visit the families of the four remaining contestants.

It also gave Ben a great opportunity to count how many plaid shirts he owns - he showed off at least three last night.

The first stop on the "hometown date" tour was Ocala, Florida, where Ben, dressed in his finest plaid, met up with Lindzi the horse lady.
