Sam Ronson to Joan Rivers: You have collagen older than LiLo

As far as Samantha Ronson is concerned, Joan Rivers’s Lindsay Lohan jokes are no laughing matter.

The celebrity DJ is defending her ex after Rivers poked fun of 24-year-old Lohan’s recent courtroom drama in a series of jokes this weekend.

“Lindsay Lohan said she wouldn't mind being under oath because she thought Oath was a Norwegian ski instructor,” Rivers, 77, tweeted on July 9. Later, referring to Lohan’s infamous manicure, Rivers wrote, “Lindsay Lohan is so dumb. Her idea of being sworn in is cursing at the judge.”

Behind the Scenes on 'Showbiz Tonight': Is Mel Gibson the only one to blame?

It's been a rough few days for Mel Gibson, but as we debated today in the "Showbiz Tonight" meeting, is he really the only one to blame in his messy, explosive split from ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva? How much should we be blaming Grigorieva in this mess?

Gibson has been slapped with a criminal investigation for alleged domestic violence, suddenly dropped by his talent agency and is now under serious scrutiny. To make matters worse, RadarOnline.com is releasing more tapes today allegedly featuring the actor and director in another violent and racist rant against his ex-girlfriend.

It could very well be curtains for Gibson's career, but it seems this whole case isn't so cut and dry. "Showbiz Tonight" producer Sid Lipsey said this morning that he doesn't believe Grigorieva is blameless in this drama. Could she be held partially accountable for the fall of Mel Gibson? Did she break the law? Tonight, we're getting the best experts in the biz to duke it out!

Marvel on the hunt for a new 'Hulk'

Let's hope the third time will be the charm.

The search is on for yet another actor to play "The Incredible Hulk" after Marvel Studios confirmed that Edward Norton will not reprise his role as the gargantuan green monster for the upcoming superhero ensemble movie "The Avengers."

Eric Bana was the first actor to play the Hulk on the big-screen in 2003, with Norton taking on the character in a 2008 reboot. As EW reported at the time, that production was fraught with drama.

Splitsville for The Dream and Christina Milian

After being married less than a year, Christina Milian and Terius ‘The-Dream’ Nash have decided to separate, according to UsMagazine.com.

“The couple reached this decision in late 2009, but decided to keep the news private in efforts to protect their baby daughter Violet,” The-Dream’s rep told Us magazine. “They ask for consideration and respect for their family moving forward."

The news of the couple’s split comes at a convenient time, as The-Dream was recently caught on camera with his assistant, Melissa Santiago, according to Us. In one photo, The-Dream is being straddled by Santiago as the pair plays in the Caribbean. The producer-singer was not wearing his wedding ring.

The-Dream and Milian eloped in September 2009 and said their vows again in Rome in December. Milian gave birth to Violet just five months ago.

'Despicable Me' one of the best in its genre

The estimated $60 million Steve Carell’s “Despicable Me” pulled in at the box office is one indication that Universal's animated tale of the evil yet loveable villain Gru is a winner, but the “four out of three stars” from one iReporter’s five-year-old bodes even better for the word-of-mouth this movie will have.

But it's not just for kids or fans of animation; if you're a fan of well-told films, said iReporter Al Mealey, you'll be a fan of this movie.

Village People: 'Y' did you do that, YMCA?

The YMCA may have decided that the “Y” in the organization’s acronym can fly as a solo act, but the Village People plan on keeping all of the letters in their hit song.

“We are deeply dismayed by today's announcement from the YMCA that they feel a name change and a rebranding are in order after 166 years," the Village People said in a statement. "Some things remain iconic and while we admire the organization for the work they do, we still can’t help but wonder Y.”

The national nonprofit said the name change to just simply "the Y" is a way of being "warmer," essentially referring to themselves in the same way that others do, as the organization’s senior vice president and chief marketing officer, Kate Coleman, told The New York Times.
