While you were working...

  • Snooki and her fiance Jionni LaValle swore they're going to take their impending parenthood seriously, and so they appear to be getting to work learning the ins and outs of caring for a child....by carting around a plastic doll. Great news - they lasted four days without losing or harming the fake baby! [TMZ]
  • If you started to feel guilty about making fun of Angelina Jolie's inescapable right leg, don't worry. She wasn't paying attention to the "Jolie-ing" that commenced post-Oscars anyway. You're in the clear to continue to mock mercilessly! [HuffPo]
  • Clearly, our invitation to hang out with two of our BFFIOHs (that would be BFFs in our heads) got lost in the mail, but we're blaming it on the alcohol. Next time you get together for a round of tequila shots, Heidi Klum and Sandy B., call us, k? [Us Weekly]
  • So, in case you haven't been on the Internet in the past 24 hours - hey, we're assuming you were working! - Justin Bieber's released a new single....and has maybe purchased himself a $6 million mansion as well. [MTV/X17]
  • What's going on with Rihanna and Ashton Kutcher? Perhaps something more than the rent, as rumors are flying that photographers caught the Barbadian singer arriving solo at the newly single actor’s Los Angeles mansion on Thursday. [AOL Music]

The Daily Mail reports that Cowell's rep said on a U.K. morning show Monday that when the entertainment mogul went to investigate, he found an unknown woman in his home with a brick in hand.

'Hunger Games' fans tweet displeasure over black actors

You can't please everyone when adapting a book for the big screen, especially one as beloved as "The Hunger Games," but director Gary Ross and the casting team likely weren't anticipating this.

According to Jezebel, there appears to be a group of fans who are displeased that black actors were cast to portray Cinna (Lenny Kravitz), Rue (Amandla Stenberg) and Thresh (Dayo Okeniyi). While Cinna's complexion isn't described in the novel, author Suzanne Collins does describe the latter two characters as both having dark skin.

As chronicled on the Tumblr "Hunger Games Tweets," it seems some readers either didn't pick up on the description or didn't read the description as depicting two African-American characters, and as a result have been vocal about their disappointment.

'Eastbound & Down': He gets it from his momma

In the words of our protagonist, “It’s hard to be ‘Charles in Charge’ when you’re not Scott Baio.”

And that, my friends, is where find ourselves with just two episodes of "Eastbound &  Down" left to go – stuck with an overwhelming feeling of facing life's uncertainties. Like Kenny Powers, we all go through struggles, but his are just funnier to watch.

We pick up with Tammy - that would be momma Powers - psyched about Kenny’s forthcoming visit with Toby, even calling him her “famous baseball player son.” Clearly he gets the delusional and egotistical side from mom.

Jimmy Kimmel to host 64th Primetime Emmys

ABC is keeping it in the family for this year's 64th Primetime Emmys, as the network's extended the hosting gig to Jimmy Kimmel.

Although Kimmel's a veteran of the late night circuit with his ABC show and is no stranger to hosting awards ceremonies - he's been on deck for programs like the American Music Awards and the ESPYs - this will be his first time holding the reins on the Emmys.

Don Mischer is back to executive produce the show for the 12th time (yep, that's a record).

PETA willing to support Kim K. 'flour bomber'

If Kim Kardashian ever brings charges against the woman who flour-bombed her at an L.A. event last week, it seems PETA is planning to side with the powder perpetrator.

The woman, who ambushed Kardashian on the red carpet of her fragrance launch this past Thursday, reportedly called her a “fur hag” before dousing her with what was said to be cooking flour.

PETA has denied any involvement with the incident, but a rep for the organization told CNN in a statement that they could back the woman if she desired their aid.
