Coleman's former agent to tweet the 'truth'

Two weeks after his May 28 death from a brain hemorrhage, Gary Coleman is still making headlines, and it doesn't look like that's about to stop any time soon.

Following the recent TV appearance of Coleman's grieving parents and the battle over his estate, Coleman's former agent Victor Perillo has established a Twitter account, GColemanTruth, to address negative stories about the late star and his family.

"I am furious that there are people out there profiting from Gary's death by getting paid for spreading vicious lies about the Colemans and tarnishing our wonderful memories of Gary," Perillo, a Coleman family confidant, said in a statement. "We want to be viewed as the voice of reason by always telling the truth and the source for factual information about Gary, his parents, and this tragedy."

Kristen Stewart: Dakota Fanning is the best kisser

Kristen Stewart is not one to kiss and tell - well, sort of.

At a June 12 "Eclipse" press conference in L.A., the actress was asked which of her "Twilight" co-stars was the better kisser: Robert Pattinson or Taylor Lautner.

"Dakota [Fanning]," Stewart, 20, answered, referring to the 2009 rock-and-roll biopic "The Runaways," in which the actresses shared a kiss. "I'm just going to have to say that because it's easier."

Katy Perry’s World Cup allegiances divided

All's fair in love and football for Katy Perry.

The singer, engaged to British comedian Russell Brand, didn’t pick a side for Saturday’s highly anticipated England vs. U.S. World Cup game. Perry tweeted on the afternoon of the match, “OMG I'M SO DIVIDED RIGHT NOW," (in all caps, just to show the dire straits she was in) and she was even wearing a minidress that combined the flags of the two countries to prove it.

Who knows how she would have reconciled her split allegiance had the game not ended in a 1-1 draw. “EVERYBODY WINS!!! I LIKE THAT," Perry tweeted after the match. "(Plus as an american marrying a englishman... I am DIVIDED).”

Brad Pitt on his beard: I was bored

Expect to see a lot less of Brad Pitt – the actor has finally trimmed his grungy goatee.

On June 12, Pitt was spotted with a much less bushy beard while driving around L.A. with partner Angelina Jolie. The 46-year-old actor and father of six was rumored to have been letting his whiskers grow wild for his role as a British explorer in the upcoming drama, “The Lost City of Z.”

Not so. The shaggy actor later explained that the decision to let his grooming go was more personal than professional. “It’s boredom,” explained Pitt. “No other reason than that.”

The man lives with Angelina Jolie, has six kids, and he’s bored?

There will be 'Blood' (and werewolves)

In the desert that is summer television, there’s at least one vein filled with fresh entertainment, and that’s HBO’s “True Blood.”

We left off at the end of the second season with a dead maenad, a brokenhearted Tara, an engagement and the disappearance of Bill Compton, all of which have left fans dying to sink their teeth into the third season. As the promos for the HBO show coyly state, "waiting sucks."

But the wait is finally over tonight at 9 p.m., and while the orgies and Fellowship of the Sun storylines from last season may seem hard to top, as one TV critic put it, that “soapy mix of sex and horror” is still there in abundance for season three.
