New baby for Shonda Rhimes, and more news to note

Today's news you might've missed:

  • "Grey's Anatomy" and "Scandal" creator Shonda Rhimes is going to have a supremely busy fall. In addition to her two ABC shows returning for new seasons, Rhimes also welcomed a third child on Wednesday. "No. 3 is here and she's perfect!" the proud mom tweeted. "Babies are good. Life is good." [Shonda Rhimes' Twitter]
  • NBC is digging into its archives for a new miniseries. The network is planning to portray the life of legend Johnny Carson with a TV event that would examine Carson's upbringing and historic tenure on "The Tonight Show." Any casting suggestions? [EW]
  • This is why we adore Sara Bareilles: Instead of taking the bait when asked her thoughts on Katy Perry's single "Roar" - which, in case you haven't heard, sounds awfully similar to Bareilles' "Brave" - she shrugged it off as a win. "I was stoked," the singer recently said. "I was like, 'You guys want to go get (mad) about something and buy my music, that's great." [E!]
  • We're not into gambling, but you might be. Want to know who's a safe bet on Emmys night? Check out these odds: [LAT]
  • This whole Miley thing? Yeah. It's now a movement. We'll let MTV explain:

      Would you do me the honour of explaining your outlandish statement? I do find it rather confusing as I – certainly of a higher economic and educational background – would honestly like to know how your mind arranges such things.

      Yours sincerely,

      Petunia Higgleseebum

    Kind regards,

    And since they aren't allowing comments on the Jared Leto story, I will post my opinion here.

    Jared Leto is such a tool. I mean THAT is why I hate emo's, overemotional without reason and totally lame and predictable. Covering RnB in a alt/rock band is soooo 2001 and OVER! That was not cool, not interesting and Rihanna should sue him for every lousy dollar he's got. Jared Leto is far from a rock star. Fake rebellion + lame sefl pity.

      Speaking of bitter old hags, the way you dealt with Minaj on Idol was pathetic. You are such a princess diva and your voice is going down the toilet. You sound like Linsday Lo0han when you speak and I bet you haven't had half the fun she has. Stay in your Repunzel castle and don't drag yo fat arsch out until you learn how to treat people with some respect.

    • u don't say

      Mariah, yep you got that right. She has nothing good to say about anyone. She is either attacking a celeb or if you comment on something you write and she doesn't agree with it, she attack you as well for it.

    • M.A.P.

      And what are you doing right now – u don't say? Oh, that's right, you're doing EXACTLY what your complaining about – b!tching at ME instead of talking about the article at hand. You are just as pathetic as the chunky thunder-thighs Mariah. If you don't have anything to say regarding thew topic, then don't post anything – then we wont be having these petty arguments.

    Shonda who!? Sara who!? CNN this is an international website. Please keep the stories relevant for an INTERNATIONAL audience. So sick of the stories about small-time US "celebrities" that noone knows. I don't care about the Bachelor or some dumb reality TV personality. You have enough megastars in the US that are known the world over, so please write about them for once!!!
