While you were working...

  • If you can't tell from our enthusiastic recaps, we're big fans of "New Girl" (and Max Greenfield, a.k.a. Schmidt to us). So the (unsurprising) news that Fox has re-upped the show for a second season makes our collective "case of the Mondays" just that much more bearable. Also: A fourth season of "Glee" and a third of "Raising Hope" on deck for next year. [Fox]
  • We're going to excuse Jennifer Lopez for breaking our dating rule No. 28 - no purchasing of homes, cars or pieces of jewelry that can later be pawned for a considerable sum - as the price of a white, customized Dodge Ram is likely chump change for her. The singer/actress reportedly purchased said truck as a present for her boyfriend Casper Smart's 25th birthday on Friday. [People]
  • Jay-Z and Beyonce are indoctrinating their little one in the good life early: Blue Ivy's hitting the St. Barth's vacation scene at the tender age of three months. [X17]
  • Kristen Stewart turns 22 today, and if nothing else, the actress should have plenty of cash to blow in celebration thanks to all of the movies she has lined up to come out this year. [MTV]
  • Anne Hathaway's lengthy brown locks have all been snipped away in a drastic haircut for her "Les Mis" role. [Daily Mail]
  • Hope Khloe Kardashian didn't get too comfortable in Dallas - her basketball-playing hubby Lamar Odom is officially "stepping away" from the Mavericks, effective immediately. [E!]
  • Snoop Dogg has a new contribution to the literary world: "Rolling Words: A Smokable Songbook." As in, yes, a book that one can, er, smoke. [TIME]

Bourdain's back with more 'No Reservations'

Now eight seasons in to "No Reservations," you might think host (as well as author/chef) Anthony Bourdain would be growing weary of his televised travel-and-eat lifestyle. (Particularly when you take into account that he has another food-focused Travel Channel show, "The Layover," which is more service-oriented than "No Reservations.")

But prepping for the eighth season of "No Reservations," which debuts tonight at 9 p.m. ET on the network, Bourdain said in a recent press call that he's not struggling to find fresh material.

"The guiding principle with the show," he says, involves a few essential questions, with the first being, "'where can I go that will be interesting to me?'"

Drew Brees takes your questions - and your party invites

Ever since Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints won Super Bowl XLIV at the end of the 2009 NFL season, many fans have considered the Saints quarterback their saving grace.

And given his effort to help rebuild a community ravaged by Hurricane Katrina - when he's not setting a record on the football field - it's easy to understand why.

So when we offered our iReport community the chance to ask Brees a few questions, they ran the gamut from what it takes to become an NFL quarterback to how Brees deals with his quasi-diety status.

Andy Cohen on 'SNL' skit: I'm flattered

"Saturday Night Live" returned this weekend after a hiatus with none other than Sofia Vergara as host.

She'd already proved she had comedic timing both on and off her ABC sitcom "Modern Family" - if you've ever seen her joke on the red carpet, you'll know that she's a natural - and she brought her talent to a number of skits, including one that poked fun at Bravo exec Andy Cohen.

Vergara opened the show with a monologue that tried to find humor in truth: "Forgive me if you don't understand what I say," she said, making light of her accent, "and I'll forgive you for staring at my chest the whole night."

'Eastbound & Down': The comeback kid

In arguably one of the greatest “Eastbound  & Down" episodes ever, Kenny Powers got his mojo back, Ashley Schaeffer met his demise and we said goodbye to baby Toby, for now.

Sunday's episode saw Black Biker Week arrive at Myrtle Beach, and yes, that was 2 Chainz playing in the intro. Rap music and KP don’t mix unless there's about to be some hilarious racial tension.

Of course, all the folks in the beach town were scared. And who was the guy in the Skeletor mask? That would be KP’s nemesis, Reg Mackworthy (Craig Robinson). Great opening sequence.

Houston funeral costs point of contention in Newark

It seems some Newark, New Jersey residents have a bone to pick with Whitney Houston’s family.

According to CNN affiliate CBS New York, the city's taxpayers aren't pleased with the more than $187,000 tab Newark picked up for police overtime during Houston’s funeral there in February.

Some residents say the late singer’s family should have paid for its own security at the New Hope Baptist Church, rather than have the city take on the overtime for close to 200 local police officers.
