While you were working...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • Zac Efron, star of the animated movie "Dr. Seuss' The Lorax," may have made an accidental condom drop on the red carpet at the movie's Los Angeles premiere, if this video is to be believed. [YouTube]

  • It seems Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton may still be friendly following their 2003 divorce, because the actress has written an introduction for her ex-husband's memoir, "The Billy Bob Tapes: A Cave Full of Ghosts." [People]
  • "Idol" is losing its ratings battle against its competition, "The Voice," finishing with only 15.9 million viewers watching Wednesday's show compared to the 16 million who watched "The Voice" on Monday. ("Idol" stans, calm yourselves: We said the show lost the battle, not the war.) [EW]
  • Things we learned about rapper/Internet star Kreayshawn in this GQ profile: She can poop with the door open, but only if all the men have been cleared from the room, and will occasionally tell strangers she's Lady Gaga in order to bum a cigarette. (Spoiler: Said strangers don't believe her.) [GQ]
  • We can't decide if this rumored Paris Hilton song, "Drunk Text," is ghastly or brilliant - or if it would become brilliant after a few drinks. Video at the link. [Gawker]

Jennifer Aniston on 'Friends' reunion: I don't think so

Cast reunions of some form or another have become standard these days, but don't hold your breath for "Friends" to be the latest.

Star Jennifer Aniston, who played Rachel Green on the classic NBC show from 1994 to 2004, has said she doesn't think it's in the cards.

"No, there will be none. I don't think so," she told MTV of the thought of Rachel, Ross, Monica, Phoebe, Joey and Chandler resurfacing once again. "Wouldn't that be weird? I would be like, 'Oh, God, why did they do that?'"

Amber Riley cuts out fast food, drops two dress sizes

After making the decision to eat healthier seven months ago, "Glee" star Amber Riley has been hitting the red carpet - such as the one rolled out for 26th birthday party in Las Vegas, seen above, last weekend - with a slimmer physique.

The actress told People magazine that chronic stomach pains prompted her to rethink her diet last July.

Instead of fast food and burgers, which Riley said were "attacking" her stomach, "I decided I was going to make a change and eat healthier," she recalled.

Operation: Take Down Lily on 'Modern Family'

Welcome back, "Modern Family" fans!

I was off last week, but thanks to iReporter Kathi Cordsen for posting her thoughts on "Aunt Mommy" (and Claire was definitely last week's MVP).

On to Wednesday night's show, where the co-MVPs were the scheming Manny and Luke. Their plan to take the spotlight-stealing Lily down a few pegs accidentally injured Cam (Phil offered him a "Swedish massage, accent optional"), and broke Lily's doll, instead.

'Top Chef: Texas': Taking it down to two

We've got one more week after this to go, because Bravo’s squeezing every last drop out of “Top Chef: Texas,” Daniel Plainview-style.

Though three chefs remained, Sarah mentioned departed fourth chef Beverly 16 times, give or take, before the Quickfire. She’s like a scorned guy who insists he’s over Brenda by constantly bringing up how over Brenda he is.

Once Padma and Emeril greeted our cheftestants in Vancouver, they laid out the Quickfire: pair up with an Asian Top Chef Master to cook an Asian-influenced dish.

Happy 60th Birthday, Mr. Potato Head!

The Throwback: Mr. Potato Head turns 60

This month marks 60 years of spud-tastic memories for an iconic toy industry staple that remains a household name.

Mr. Potato Head hit the market in 1952 and has been inspiring imaginative play ever since. For many preschool aged children, ownership of a Mr. Potato Head represents a rite of passage as well as the passing down of a tradition from generation to generation.

Mr. Potato Head was the first-ever toy to be advertised on television and remains one of Hasbro's most beloved characters.
