AMANDA BYNES was arrested last night after she threw a bong out the window of her 36th-floor New York City apartment.
It all started when the doorman spotted Amanda taking hits off the bong in the lobby of the building and called police. By the time the cops got there, she was already in her apartment.
They knocked on the door, and when Amanda opened it, they saw the bong. So she grabbed it and tossed it out the window. Not surprisingly, police noticed a heavy smell of marijuana inside the apartment.
Amanda was arrested for possession of marijuana, tampering with evidence and reckless endangerment. Those last two charges were for tossing the bong.
Amanda was taken to Roosevelt Hospital for a PSYCHIATRIC EVALUATION, then to a police station for booking. She was expected to be held overnight, then appear in court this morning.
TMZ says that before her arrest, Amanda was acting erratically, by doing things like talking to herself. And she didn't surrender peacefully, she went kicking and screaming and yelling stuff like, quote, "Don't you know who I am?"
Don't worry...Lindsay is still crazy too.
RadarOnline.com says LINDSAY LOHAN tried to invite her DRUG DEALER to visit her at Betty Ford.
A source says this guy partied with Lindsay for years, and provided drugs for her including cocaine. The source adds, quote, "He is a very, very, bad influence on her."
Lindsay asked the clinic for permission to invite him, but they turned her down . . . quote, "They told her in no uncertain terms that she needs to sever her relationship with him once she leaves rehab, if she is to overcome her addictions."
Who? Ohhhh Charlie!!
CHARLIE SHEEN is embracing his Latin roots for "Machete Kills". As you may have heard, Charlie plays the president of the United States in the movie.
And in the credits, he's not going by "Charlie Sheen". He's using his GIVEN name, CARLOS ESTEVEZ
Charlie's full name is Carlos Irwin Estevez. His dad, MARTIN SHEEN, was born Ramon Antonio Gerardo Estevez.
Charlie's brother EMILIO DIOGENES ESTEVEZ is the only one of the three of them PROUD enough of his culture and heritage not to whitewash his name.
I LOVE me some Lifetime TV movies!!

They'll be passengers on one of those Virgin Galactic flights. One seat normally costs $200,000, and there's already a waiting list. The first flight is expected to launch around Christmas.

George Michael fell OUT of car...on the highway?!?!!?
GEORGE MICHAEL was the hospital earlier this week after witnesses say he was trying to open and shut his passenger side door, and he fell out of a Range Rover that was doing 70 miles per hour on the highway!!
One witness says, quote, "He had a nasty cut on his forehead and the back of his head. There was blood all down his face and on his teeth. He was breathing and conscious but in shock."
She adds, quote, "George was wearing a black and gold Adidas tracksuit that was ripped all down the arm and shoulder. He had no [shoes] on. I grabbed one from the second lane because cars were swerving to avoid it . . . I think he was lucky he didn't die."
Meanwhile, George's rep says he's still in the hospital, but only as a precaution. And he's, quote, "making good progress, he's fine and he's really looking forward to getting home."
EW EW EW EW Jesse James!
He cut the tip of his finger OFF yesterday while working on something! He posted a picture of it....but I'm not going to. Google if you must. It's GROSS!!!
Don't be mean to your kids or Melissa McCarthy will FIRE YOU!!
MELISSA MCCARTHY fired an extra from a movie because the woman was mistreating her own daughter! Way to go Melissa!
Melissa and her husband BEN FALCONE are directing a movie called "Tammy". Melissa is starring in it. They were shooting at a lake the other day with a bunch of extras including this unidentified woman and her 4- or 5-year-old daughter.
Sources say the woman was yelling loudly at her daughter all day to settle down and be quiet, and then she grabbed her by the wrist and jerked her pretty hard.
That was all Melissa needed to see. She had the woman FIRED, saying she wouldn't tolerate abuse on her set.
Three "Brady Bunch" cast members reunited at the Ohio amusement park King's Island over the weekend. That's the place where they filmed the "Cincinnati Kids" episode 40 YEARS AGO.
Barry Williams (Greg Brady), Christopher Knight (Peter) and Susan Olsen (Cindy) were there to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the episode. They met with fans, posed for pictures and even rode The Racer roller coaster.
This was the episode where the dad, Mike, is presenting some architectural plans for the park to the directors, but the canister with the plans gets mixed up with one that has Jan's Yogi Bear poster.
Jan loses Mike's canister, and the family has to scour the park to find it before Mike's meeting ends. Once they find it, there's a classic sequence where they do a RELAY RACE to deliver the plans back to Mike in time.
The season finale for Mike and Molly has been postponed.
CBS was supposed to air the season finale of "Mike & Molly" last night, but they pulled it at the last minute, and replaced it with a re-run.
The episode was called "Windy City", and the story involved Mike and Molly confessing things to each other as a TORNADO descended down on Chicago.
Obviously, this move was done out of sensitivity for the victims of the recent, devastating tornados in Middle America . . . especially the one that hit Moore, Oklahoma yesterday.
CBS says they will air the tornado episode of "Mike & Molly" at a, quote, "appropriate date" in the future.
Who will win DWTS!?!?!
I am still rooting for Lisa Vanderpump, even though she got voted off already.
• "Dancing with the Stars" [15th Season Finale] . . . 9:00 to 11:00 P.M. on ABC. Music Guests: Pitbull, Wynonna Judd, Psy, and "American Idol's" Jessica Sanchez.
How do people get SO behind?!?!
MARY J. BLIGE owes $900,000 in back taxes to the state of New Jersey. But that's NOTHING. Because the IRS just filed a tax lien against her for $3.4 million!!!
They say she didn't pay ANY federal income tax in 2009, 2010 or 2011. Mary J. is also being sued for defaulting on a $2.2 million loan, and her charity is being sued for not paying back a $250,000 loan.
He's broke as a joke.
Comedian Sinbad filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
He claims he has $11 million in debt, including $8.3 million in state and federal back taxes. Also, he "only" earns $16,000 a month, which isn't enough to keep up with his bills.
Meanwhile, he claims only $131,000 in assets.
According to TMZ, Sinbad's bankruptcy filing from 2009 was actually rejected, because he failed to fill out the proper paperwork.

He thanked his current team, Paris St. Germain in France, for giving him the opportunity to continue competing, but he added, quote, "I feel now is the right time to finish my career, playing at the highest level."
Now they're "swatting" cars!??!!?
The other day, cops swarmed DIDDY'S $500,000 Maybach and ordered the driver to get out of the car and get down on his knees.
They'd gotten a call that someone in the car was armed, but it turned out to be a false alarm. Diddy wasn't even in the car at the time . . . he'd just been dropped off somewhere.
Taj Jackson sticks up for his uncle Michael
MICHAEL JACKSON'S nephew TAJ says he was molested by a family member on his mother's side when he was a boy. And Michael was the one who consoled him after it happened.
And to him, that's enough proof that choreographer WADE ROBSON is lying about being abused by Michael.
Taj - who's the son of Michael's brother TITO - says, quote, Michael was, quote, "a support system for me and my mom."
He even gave Taj's mother an article about child abuse, along with a letter in which he asked her to read it to Taj and his siblings.
Only ONE judge wants to return!!?
At least one person wants to return to "American Idol" next season . . . and thankfully it's the sanest judge on the panel. Of course, that's KEITH URBAN.
When Keith was asked if he was interested in sticking around, he said, quote, "I would. I mean, I literally enjoy coming to work every day, and that's a rarity."
If you want my body, and you think I'm sexy.....read this THEN decide.....
ROD STEWART took a lot of steroids for his voice back in the '80s, but he gave them up for a variety of reasons - including the fact that they SHRUNK HIS JUNK!
He says, quote, "In those days we didn't have in-ear monitors and the band kept getting louder and drunker, and I kept blowing my voice out.
"The steroids will take down the swelling in any membrane, including your [package] . . . and it's what you do when you're in a bit of a pinch and need to do a show and you can't sing."
He adds, quote, "It's one of the most horrible drugs in the world. One night, on stage in Sheffield, I thought I was in the kitchen with my mum because the steroids had eaten a hole in my stomach.
"I was bleeding internally and hallucinating. What the audience must have thought?"
Rod says he still uses them about once a year to get through a tough performance, but he adds, quote, "You pay for it. You can't sing for a week."
You can be my hero baaaaaaaaaaby!
BRAD PITT spoke out yesterday about ANGELINA JOLIE'S choice to undergo a double mastectomy. He said, quote, "Having witnessed this decision firsthand, I find Angie's choice, as well as so many others like her, absolutely heroic.
"I thank our medical team for their care and focus. All I want . . . is for her to have a long and healthy life, with myself and our children. This is a happy day for our family."
In a separate interview he said, quote, "I'm quite emotional about it, of course. She could have stayed absolutely private about it and I don't think anyone would have been none the wiser with such good results.
"But it was really important to her to share the story and that others would understand it doesn't have to be a scary thing. In fact, it can be an empowering thing, and something that makes you stronger and us stronger."
Back home, he says he and the kids turned the whole thing into a game . . . quote, "We set up our own little post-op recovery that became pretty fun. You make an adventure out of it."
In other Brad and Angelina news....
Tabloids say.....again....they'll be getting married soon.
So is she pregnant?!?!? ....or just sick?
BEYONCÉ canceled a scheduled show in Belgium last night due to, quote, "dehydration and exhaustion." Her publicist says her doctors advised her to rest. The show will be rescheduled.
She's supposed to perform at the same arena TONIGHT . . . but there's no guarantee that's happening. Her publicist says, quote, "She's awaiting word from her doctors before making a decision."
Of course, there's talk that this SUPPORTS recent speculation that Beyoncé is pregnant again. There's no official word . . . but it seems like an interesting time for her doctors to order her to rest.
What the heck is wrong with this chick?!!?
CHARLIE SHEEN'S ex-wife BROOKE MUELLER is currently in rehab, and Charlie's OTHER ex, DENISE RICHARDS, has custody of Charlie and Brooke's 4-year-old twin sons Bob and Max.
According to RadarOnline.com, Brooke has been to rehab 20 TIMES!! And two of those times were when she was pregnant with Bob and Max. And both times, she was being treated for her addiction to CRYSTAL METH.
A source says, quote, "It's truly amazing that she was able to hold onto custody of the boys for as long as she did. Brooke's road to getting custody back of the boys is going to be very, very long."
Changes to DWTS next season and I'm liking it!
ABC has revealed their schedule for next season, and in the process, they announced that the"Dancing with the Stars" results show will be dropped next season to make more room for their new stuff.
There will only be one, two-hour episode of "Dancing" each week . . . meaning that the performances and results will somehow be combined into a single, two-hour show.
"Dancing with the Stars" has had a separate results show since Season Two in 2006.
Don't go Stefon!!!!
BILL HADER is leaving "Saturday Night Live" after eight seasons. He tells the "New York Times", quote, "It was a hard decision, but it has to happen at some point. It got to a point where I said, 'Maybe it's just time to go.'"
Bill may not be the only one who's leaving. FRED ARMISEN and JASON SUDEIKIS are not sure they want to do another season either. "SNL" boss Lorne Michaels says they're still, quote, "making their decisions."
Of course, SETH MEYERS is also leaving to take over for JIMMY FALLON on "Late Night" next February . . . but he's staying on "SNL" through this fall.
Now we know why we hadn't seen her in a while.
ANGELINA JOLIE has revealed that she had both of her breasts removed to prevent cancer. She had them surgically reconstructed afterwards.
In a piece in this morning's "New York Times", Angelina says her doctor told her she has the BRCA1 gene, which is one of the so-called "breast cancer genes".
And because of that, she had an 87% risk of getting breast cancer, and a 50% chance of getting ovarian cancer. So she made the choice to have both breasts removed.
She went through three months of medical procedures, which were completed on April 27th.
Read her New York Times article HERE.
Before Dr. Phil and Dr. Drew....there was Dr. Joyce Brothers
Celebrity psychologist DR. JOYCE BROTHERS died yesterday. She was 85.

Xtina and CeeLo might be coming back to The Voice!
They both took Season Four off, and were replaced by SHAKIRA and USHER.
A source tells the "Hollywood Reporter" that Christina could make somewhere around $12 million to come back.
TheWrap.com reports that Christina has already signed her new contract. Supposedly, it's worth $12.5 million, but she could make up to $17 million "with incentives." It's unclear what that means.
The site also says Cee Lo is in, quote, "advanced negotiations" to return. There's no word how much he might be making.
It's unclear if ADAM LEVINE and BLAKE SHELTON are planning on returning . . . or if they're going to sit this season out. Of course, if they do step away, it's possible that Shakira and / or Usher could sub in again.
So Kanye West walks into a bar......
BEST VIDEO EVER!!!!!!
Nope, I won't miss her.
BARBARA WALTERS is retiring next summer. She's planning to announce it today on "The View", which is very odd, because she already announced it yesterday.
She said, quote, "I am very happy with my decision and look forward to a wonderful and special year ahead both on 'The View' and with ABC News. I created 'The View' and am delighted it will last beyond my leaving it."
Barbara Walters is 83 years old. She's been working in TV journalism for over 50 years. She started as a writer and researcher for NBC's "Today" show in 1961.
Seriously Lindz...shut up and do your time!
TMZ says that Lindsay wants to leave the Betty Ford Center already, because doctors took away her Adderall.
Adderall is for attention deficit disorder, which Lindsay CLAIMS she has. And she does have a prescription for it. But it's also an addictive stimulant that is often misused.
Supposedly, doctors at Betty Ford assessed Lindsay's condition and decided she doesn't need it. So Lindsay is freaking out and telling people she wants OUT.
Lindsay's best move would probably be to stay right where she is. A source says that the judge will send her to jail if she pulls anymore rehab shenanigans.
Porn....has hit a new low.
"Tanning Mom" Patricia Krentcil is getting in the game. The good news is she's not even taking her clothes off. She's making a cameo in a gay porno flick called "Kings of New York". And they're paying her $1,000.
Patricia tried to offer her X-rated services to Vivid Entertainment . . . the company that just released the FARRAH ABRAHAM movie . . . and they said no thanks.

Jimmy in for Jay...but WHO is in for Jimmy?
It's SNL's Seth Meyers!
There's no premiere date for Seth's debut but Jimmy is taking over for JAY LENO after NBC broadcasts the 2014 Winter Olympics next February.
Seth said, quote, "I don't want to make any broad pronouncements about how the show is going to be, whether it's going to be the same or different.
"But I have to draw on my background in improvisational comedy and sketch comedy and stand-up comedy and try to find some mix of that."
I can't make the list, but A PRETEND GIRL DOES?!
"Maxim" released the complete Hot 100 yesterday, and LENNAY KEKUA is on it, at #69.
If that name doesn't ring a bell, she was MANTI TE'O'S FAKE GIRLFRIEND.
"Maxim" says, quote, "After Manti Te'o's fake girlfriend hoax of 2012, we think it might be nice to have an invisible girl of our own to love. Why not? She's got a ton of great qualities, including looking awesome in a bikini."
MILEY CYRUS tops the list this year. She's followed by SELENA GOMEZ and RIHANNA.
It's about time Randy! JUMP SHIIP!!!
RANDY JACKSON has announced that he's leaving "American Idol" after this season. He was the last of the original "Idol" judges.
In a very Randy-like statement, he said, quote, "Yo! Yo! Yo! To put all of the speculation to the rest, after 12 years of judging on 'American Idol' I have decided it is time to leave after this season."
For now, there's no indication that there's any animosity . . . but there may have been some between Randy and MARIAH CAREY. Word has it she just dropped Randy as her manager. They'd been together since the early '90s.
Meanwhile, there are reports that "Idol" does not plan on inviting ANY of this season's judges back . . . but there's no official word on that. Supposedly, the show wants to bring in some fresh blood.
I finally have a chance!
"Vampire Diaries" co-stars IAN SOMERHALDER and NINA DOBREV are no longer in real life. Sources say they broke up because Nina wasn't ready to settle down. They were together about three years.
Quote, "They will continue to work together and remain best friends, which is where the relationship started."
I never watched it...but if it comes back I will!
E! Online says that Fox is bringing back "24" for a limited run, and KIEFER SUTHERLAND will be back. Fox actually won't confirm it, but so-called "sources" say it's a done deal.
Kiefer's got the time, because the network is canceling his latest show, "Touch".
"24" ran for eight seasons before finishing its run in 2010. Plans for a movie were scrapped last year.
I demand to know WHO participated in this survey!!!!
According to a new survey by Public Policy Polling, people just don't like JUSTIN BIEBER, LADY GAGA or CHRIS BROWN.
The company named several pop stars, and asked people if they had a favorable or unfavorable impression of them. Brown polled the lowest of any of them, not surprisingly.
Only 13% of respondents rated him favorably, while 57% rated him unfavorably. 30% answered "not sure".
Bieber, Gaga, RIHANNA and JAY-Z also rated "unfavorable". SKRILLEX did too, but he was the least-recognizable star on the list. He only got an 11% favorability rating, but only 35% unfavorable. 54% of respondents voted "not sure".
Stars who rated favorably were ADELE, JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE, TAYLOR SWIFT and BEYONCÉ.
Would YOU like to be Lilo's roommate?!
LINDSAY LOHAN has completed a 48-hour detox program at Betty Ford, and she's now in an all-female dorm. She doesn't have a roommate yet, but that could change.
A source says, quote, "She is adapting to being back at Betty Ford and is very receptive to the care plan that has been created for her." Lindsay is NOT allowed to leave the clinic at all, and she's only allowed to use her phone for a short period every day.
There's also talk that doctors are going to evaluate whether or not Lindsay actually needs Adderall. She has a prescription for it because of her supposed ADD.
You KNOW it's gonna be FAB if these 2 are in it!
TINA FEY and AMY POEHLER reportedly make an appearance in the "Anchorman" sequel. A photo appeared online this week that supposedly shows them from behind.
There's no word on their part, most likely it's a cameo.
The Biebs on The Simpsons!
JUSTIN BIEBER will have a "brief cameo" on "The Simpsons" this coming Sunday. He's voicing an animated version of himself. The episode is titled "The Fabulous Faker Boy".

Are you ready for some football?!?
NBC asked CARRIE UNDERWOOD to be the next to sing the introduction to "Sunday Night Football"!
Carrie and her version of "Waiting All Day for Sunday Night" will debut on the September 8th game between the Dallas Cowboys and the New York Giants.
Carrie is the third person to sing the intro. PINK did it one year, back in 2006 . . . and then FAITH HILL took over and held the spot for six years before announcing last month that someone else could, quote, "rock the open."
"I am thrilled to be a part of NBC's 'Sunday Night Football' and am so honored they asked me. I have always loved football season, and it is so exciting to now become part of it every Sunday night!"
Wait....DID they get married?!?!
HONEY BOO BOO'S parents MAMA JUNE and SUGAR BEAR might NOT have gotten married on Sunday.
This is what she posted on her facebook page:

Mother's Day is SUNDAY!

I LOVE these movies!
TOM CRUISE just signed a deal to do "Mission: Impossible 5". That's literally all we know at this point. There's no word on a title, a plot, a release date, or which of Tom's co-stars from the previous films, if any, will return.
Michael Scott is coming back?!?!
TVLine.com is saying that STEVE CARELL WILL appear on the series finale of "The Office" on May 16th. The site says it will be a brief cameo . . . not a full-on guest-starring role.
But this is still not OFFICIAL. Just last week, an "Office" executive producer reiterated that both Steve and the show didn't want a return to "overshadow" his character's original departure, and Steve's rep has said he's NOT in the finale.
Was JLo almost SHOT!?
J-Lo was on a video shoot in Fort Lauderdale on Saturday, when gunshots were reportedly fired nearby. She was giving an interview to "Entertainment Tonight" at the time.
"Entertainment Tonight's" ROB MARCIANO Tweeted, quote, "BREAKING: Gunshots fired on Fort Lauderdale Beach DURING my J-Lo interview. No kidding. Security scrambled her away."
He added, quote, "[I] can hear and see ambulances converging about 400 yards down the street. Police confirming: 'Shots fired. No one hit.' Whew."
It's unclear what happened. The police say any suspects who may have been involved in the shooting fled before officers arrived . . . and there are no known witnesses or injuries.
J-Lo was with her current boyfriend CASPER SMART this time.
Get Well Soon Phillip Phillips!
Phillip just canceled the nine remaining dates on his college tour. In a Facebook post, he said, quote, "Hey guys, due to doctor's orders I have to postpone my last few tour dates. They will be rescheduled!"
Phillip is supposed to attend the "Idol" finale next week . . . and is scheduled to hit the road with JOHN MAYER beginning in July. It isn't clear what's wrong with him, but sources suggest it's a combination of his kidney issues and exhaustion.
Remember last time she was there - she got into a FIGHT with a female employee who caught her sneaking back into the clinic after sneaking out for a night.
As for the clinic the court originally agreed to in the New York area, Dina says Lindsay's psycho dad MICHAEL LOHAN was once a client there, and they rejected Lindsay because they didn't want HIM coming to visit her!!!
Lindsay is back with Shawn Holley, the lawyer she fired for no good reason back in January.

Where in the world is Lilo?!
LINDSAY LOHAN was supposed to check into rehab yesterday but we're still not clear on where she is.
She was originally going to do her 90-day deal at a facility in New York. But at the last minute she opted for Morningside Recovery Center in Newport Beach, California.
Soooooooooo, she hopped on a plane to California.
Lindsay arrived in California yesterday morning, and her attorney went to court and said she was, quote, "ensconced in the bosom" of Morningside.
BUT SHE WASN'T!!! She was spotted at a Fry's Electronics store in Fountain Valley.

3 things you didn't know about Pink!
1 - She used to date Joey Fatone! She opened up for them in the early '00's and says: "He was in love with me. He took me to Friendly's on a date and he bought me an ice cream. Such a sweetheart. He asked my dad's permission!"

He says, quote, "For every actor, celebrity, musician and politician out there that we see, there's somebody at home going, 'I was their first.' I want to hear their stories, too."
Stamos has one friend who WANTS to be on the show. He won't identify him, but he says, quote, "One very big star said, 'I gotta be on your show.'

Meat says, quote, "An allergy specialist mixed my urine with some other stuff first. So there was some urine in the solution to help fight allergies. You don't just pee in a bottle and stick a needle in and inject it."
He claims other celebrities have done it, too. "I won't give you their names, but they were people you would've heard of . . . and they were all peeing in glasses and bringing them back and having others drink it. It was an allergy thing. I wasn't involved, but I was there."
So DID J Lo want to come back to American Idol?
Last week, Fox denied a rumor that they were thinking about bringing back JENNIFER LOPEZ to replace MARIAH CAREY on "American Idol" mid-season.
Well now, there's word that it was actually J-Lo who approached Fox about getting her old job back. A "source" tells RadarOnline.com that J-Lo had her manager reach out to "Idol" to let them know she was interested.
Supposedly, she's no longer interested in touring and liked the stability that "Idol" provided, so that she could remain home with her five-year-old twins. The source added that J-Lo never suggested that she REPLACE Mariah.

ASHTON KUTCHER got into a fight with a security guard at the Stagecoach country music festival in Indio, California over the weekend.
TMZ says that Ashton was in the VIP area when a woman approached to say hi and shake his hand, and Ashton was cool with that.
But for some reason, the security guard shoved both Ashton and the woman which resulted in Ashton and the guy getting into a "violent" shoving match.
Ashton's friends had to pull him away, and then they left. Witnesses say this was NOT Ashton's fault, and the security guard was way out of line.
Speaking of Ashton....
CBS has renewed "Two and a Half Men" for an 11th season. ASHTON KUTCHER and JON CRYER have signed one-year deals to return, but ANGUS T. JONES' status is still up in the air.
Last fall, Angus posted an interview with a religious website called "Forerunner Chronicles". He expressed moral objections to the show, called it "filth", and suggested that people stop watching it.
The show has invited him back, to serve as a part-time character.
Ashton and Jon's new contracts are reportedly on par with what they were for this season. There aren't any specific numbers, but that suggests Ashton will make about $700,000 per episode, with Jon making a little less.
This means they will remain the highest-paid actors on TV.

Michael Jackson is still moon walking?
Nope...he's tap dancing!

She says, quote, "We go up there and no one's up there . . . just tap dancing. And the dog barks at his room, the window, every single night at the same time.
"The dog doesn't even know that that's Michael's room, and the security didn't know. It's weird!"
What do you do when your girlfriend eats your pet?

"It just wasn't the right thing to do. That's why she's not my woman anymore."

"Duck Dynasty"'s third season finale attracted 9.6 million viewers, which was enough to make it the show's most-watched episode.
Wednesday's "American Idol" averaged ONLY three million more viewers. Although admittedly, "Idol" isn't what it once was.
Not surprisingly, "Duck Dynasty" has been cleared for a fourth season, which SHOULD start filming soon. If that gets sorted out soon, Season Four will premiere sometime later this year.

Bye Bye Monkey JUSTIN BIEBER has tired of his monkey. As you probably recall, Mally the capuchin monkey was seized by customs officials at the Munich airport last month, after Justin tried to bring it in to Germany without the proper paperwork. Mally has been in quarantine ever since . . . because Justin apparently doesn't want him back. His people have been in contact with German authorities about getting Mally into a zoo or another, more suitable environment. Speaking of Justin.....

Selena is the musical guest on David Letterman tonight...last time she was there they joked about Selena making Justin cry.

Does she do ANYTHING besides embarrass herself?
TARA REID reportedly got kicked out of the All Saints store in L.A. last week for throwing a tantrum after they refused to give her a discount. A source says, quote, "She was screaming. She had to be escorted out by security. She seemed drunk."
Tara's rep says there was just a misunderstanding about the discount, because Tara always gets one at All Saints in the U.K. and Paris. Also, she left the store on her own, she wasn't kicked out. And she wasn't drunk.
The rep says, quote, "People love to say Tara's hammered and this and that. Whoever is saying that is not on Team Tara."
Hmmmm, is Reese a little embarrassed too?
In light of her arrest last week, REESE WITHERSPOON has canceled her upcoming talk show appearances.
She was supposed to do "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" tonight. Also, she was scheduled to tape an interview yesterday with "Good Morning America" that was going to air tomorrow. Those are no longer happening.

KIM KARDASHIAN and KRIS HUMPHRIES settled their divorce on Friday, and it sounds like it went pretty much the way we heard it would. Kris basically dropped his attempt to get the marriage annulled on the basis of fraud.
He also gets NOTHING out of Kim. Not even legal fees. They both walk away clean.
Kris had been demanding $7 million . . . but much like the annulment, this was something else he never really had a shot at getting, thanks to an iron-clad prenup.
"DO YOU KNOW MY NAME?!"
REESE WITHERSPOON and her husband Jim Toth were ARRESTED early Friday morning in Atlanta. .
Police saw a car weaving sometime after midnight Friday, so they pulled it over. Jim was driving, and Reese was in the passenger seat.
Reese started getting impatient and agitated. One of the cops says, quote, "She began to hang out the window and say that she did not believe that I was a real police officer."
He says he told Reese to sit down and be quiet. Once her husband was placed under arrest, Reese got out of the car. The cop told her to get back in, but she said she was a U.S. citizen, and was allowed to, quote, "stand on American ground."
So he tried to take her by the arms, but she resisted, and said, quote, "Do you know my name?" When the cop said no, he didn't need to know her name, she replied, quote, "You're about to find out who I am . . . You are going to be on national news."
At that point, she was cuffed and arrested.
The Friends reunion ISN'T happening?!
For some reason, rumors have been spreading online that a "Friends" reunion is coming . . . either as a one-time special, or as a whole new SEASON. But apparently, nothing is happening. Not yet, at least.
An "NBC source" tells E! News that the reports are, quote, "not true." Meanwhile, another "NBC insider" says that, while a reunion HAS been "talked about," there has been, quote, "no forward motion" on it.
Another reason to love Bradley Cooper!
BRADLEY COOPER lives with his mom!
Technically, Bradley's mom lives with HIM. She moved in with him after his father died two years ago.
In the new issue of "Details" magazine he says, quote, "My family is very close, and my dad dying was brutal for all of us. It was a schism, and its aftershock has not stopped. And we need each other. So here we are."
He adds, quote, "It's not without complications. It's not like I live in a compound and she's in the guesthouse. No. She's in the next room.
"But here's the thing: She's a cool chick. We can hang, and she can roll with the punches. If that wasn't the case, there's no way."
She hid under a table? No wonder Justin dumped her!
SELENA GOMEZ got to meet BRAD PITT at the "MTV Movie Awards" on Sunday night and it left her a little shell-shocked.
On "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" yesterday, she said that HE wanted to meet HER and get a photo with her, because his kids are big fans. So he came to her dressing room.
She told Ellen, quote, "I was trying to play cool and be really nice. And as soon as he walked out, I ran and I hid under the craft-service table for like two minutes because I couldn't believe it was happening."
D.L. HUGHLEY got booted from "Dancing With the Stars" last night.

Matt and Luciana spent somewhere in the mid-six figures to rent out an entire resort on the island. They originally got hitched in a small ceremony at City Hall in 2005, and have three daughters together. Luciana also has a daughter from a previous relationship.
Tracy, Tracy, Tracy.....
TRACY MORGAN did a couple stand-up shows at a comedy festival in Melbourne, Australia on Saturday and most attending didn't like it.
Both shows were sold out, but obviously, a lot of people didn't know what they were getting themselves into. Because at least 50 people walked out, and even more demanded REFUNDS.
We don't know exactly what Tracy said that upset so many people, but witnesses say his material was vulgar, sexist and not particularly funny. One witness says, quote, "It was all sexually related. It was like a horrible experience.
A journalist who reviewed one of Tracy's shows called it, quote, "truly awful" and said it was full of "old lazy jokes."
And an Australian women's rights group plans to protest his remaining shows in the country.
Ozzy was using drugs again?!!?
There have been rumors lately that OZZY and SHARON OSBOURNE are separated. Well, that's apparently true . . . because yesterday, Ozzy revealed that he FELL OFF THE WAGON.
In a post on his Facebook page he said, quote, "For the last year and a half I have been drinking and taking drugs. I was in a very dark place and was an A–hole to the people I love most, my family.
"However, I am happy to say that I am now 44 days sober. Just to set the record straight, Sharon and I are not divorcing. I'm just trying to be a better person.
"I would like to apologize to Sharon, my family, my friends and my band mates for my insane behavior during this period . . . and my fans."
Wait...did anyone even SEE the 2nd one??

He also Tweeted that he'd like to have MEL GIBSON direct the movie, although he called that, quote, "a long shot."
You're A Boob Man, Charlie Brown
Back in January, we heard that PETER ROBBINS - the original voice of Charlie Brown - was arrested for stalking and making threats. At the time, we didn't know the details, but now we do.
At some point, Peter paid for BREAST IMPLANTS for his girlfriend, one Shawna Kern. But then they broke up, and he wanted his money back. So he stalked and threatened both Shawna and her doctor.
He pleaded guilty to the charges this week, and is facing up to three years in prison.
Robbins is 56 years old now. He was 9 when he became the first person to voice Charlie Brown, in the 1965 special "A Boy Named Charlie Brown".
Lady Gaga won't be back anytime soon....
LADY GAGA has been on the shelf since undergoing hip surgery in February, and "sources" tell "Life & Style" magazine that she won't be back in action until September, at the earliest.
Supposedly, she just started walking again . . . but is still "relaxing and rehabbing." Since she can't perform, she's been focusing on writing some new songs, which she finds, quote, "therapeutic." Lady Gaga hasn't commented on her recovery.
Reeeeg and Kelly aren't friends in real life?!?!?
Kelly Ripa said she doesn't keep in touch with her former co-host and hasn't seen Regis since he left the show in November 2011!!
Kelly -- who was honored by The Hollywood Reporter Wednesday along with her current co-host Michael Strahan for making its annual 35 Most Powerful People in Media list -- told the publication that she doesn't really stay in touch with 81-year-old Regis. "I haven't seen him, no," she said.
When asked whether Regis has any similarities to current sidekick Strahan, Kelly said, "Well they're both incredible storytellers." She also joked that Regis could even keep up with Strahan -- a former NFL star -- on the football field. "They are both fiercely competitive, and they're both incredible football players."
Showbiz veteran Regis recently announced that he's returning to TV to host a show for FOX Sports 1 called Rush Hour -- during which he'll discuss sports topics with a panel of sports professionals, celebrity guests and fans.
Yep, I'll go see this!
The phony children's book "Go The [Eff] to Sleep" is being made into a MOVIE.
The script hasn't even been written yet, so details are scarce at this point.
Who raps a response to critics??? ...Jay Z does
JAY-Z and BEYONCÉ took a trip to Cuba to celebrate their fifth anniversary. Some people found that "controversial" because technically, you're not allowed to go to Cuba simply for a fun vacation.
The thinking is that Jay-Z got special permission because he and BEYONCÉ are so tight with the Obamas.
Well, Jay-Z has responded . . . in a rap, naturally. It's a new track called "Open Letter", and he raps, quote, "Boy from the hood, but got White House clearance. Sorry y'all, I don't agree with y'all appearance . . .
"Politicians never did [crap] for me, except lie to me, distort history . . . Obama said 'Chill, you gonna get me impeached.' We don't need this [crap] anyway, chill with me on the beach."
The track also includes the lines: Quote, "I done turned Havana to Atlanta . . . I'm in Cuba, I love Cubans. This Communist talk is so confusing."
TV Reminders For This Weekend!
Her time has finally come!
LINDSAY LOHAN was on "The Late Show with David Letterman" last night and she told Dave that she's finally going to rehab on May 2nd.
BUT...before that - she'll be going to Coachella music festival this weekend and next.
Dave asked her, "Aren't you supposed to be in rehab now?"
And Lindsay replied, quote, "Don't you watch anything that goes on? What are you a tabloid now?"
He also asked her how long she'll be in rehab, and she said "Three months." He asked her how many times she's already been in rehab, and she said "Several."
Lindsay handled it well, but it sounds like Dave caught her off guard because she said, quote, "We didn't discuss this in the pre-interview."
She also called her upcoming rehab stint, quote, "a blessing, not a curse."
Dave tried to get Lindsay to admit she's an addict, and to reveal what she's addicted to . . . but she wouldn't bite. She told him, quote, "We've discussed this in the past."
And he replied, "Did we really? . . . Now I'm the one who's having the blackouts."
Nope, Tom never saw it coming!
Tom Cruise admits that in a new interview with a German TV station. He says, quote, "I didn't expect that."
Of course he's talking about the middle of the night escape of ex-wife Katie Holmes.
Tom turned 50 right around the time of the breakup and he says, quote, "Life is a challenge. To be 50 and have experiences and think you have everything under control, and then it hits you . . . that's what life is.
"Life is tragicomic. You need a certain sense of humor."
Moooooore Bon Jovi news
Jon Bon Jovi is making it clear that HE had nothing to do with Richie Sambora leaving the band in a huff.
He says, quote, "I think Richie's doing all right, [but] I haven't spoken to him. We were surprised. It was 3:30 on show day . . . and we got a phone call that he wouldn't be there. It's a personal matter."
He didn't elaborate on that but did add, quote, "Don't believe what you read on TMZ because it's the furthest thing from the truth."
M. I. C....See you real soon Annette!

$20 for a concert ticket!?!?
Kid Rock has worked out a deal with Live Nation to make ALL the tickets for his summer tour available for just $20. Plus, his people are working to lower prices on things like beer, parking and merchandise for every show.
Kid says, quote, "We're all fortunate to make as much money as we do, and I can surely take a pay cut and help out in these hard times . . . we're going to make less money, but I've got enough money to where it's not going to kill my lifestyle.
"And who doesn't want to play to a packed house every night?"
To be clear, he isn't cutting corners by taking anything away from the show or shortchanging his crew. He says, quote, "I'm the one saying, 'If this doesn't work out, I'll take the pay cut.' It's a way of saying 'thank you' to the fans."
He also says they're not selling tickets for the front two rows, so they can offer free upgrades to random fans on the day of the show.
Once you're there, 12-ounce beers will run you $4 at every venue, which Kid Rock says is "fair," and he's slashed his t-shirt prices from $35 or $40 to $20 and $25.
The tour runs from June 28th in Virginia through September 15th in Tampa. The opening bands will beUNCLE KRACKER, and either KOOL AND THE GANG or ZZ TOP.

Last week, BON JOVI guitarist RICHIE SAMBORA left the band's tour to deal with mysterious "personal issues."
Why? Well the "New York Post" claims he IS drinking like crazy again.
An "insider" says, quote, "JON [BON JOVI] has been trying to get rid of him. He drinks constantly and has a stream of Hollywood bimbos around all the time, he really is a hard partier, and so are the women he hangs out with."
The "Post" says Jon's wife Dorothea "urged" Jon to give Richie the boot in order to keep the show free of drugs and alcohol.
Will YOU watch Vinny's talk show?

The show is called "The Show With Vinny", and instead of interviewing various celebrities in a studio, Vinny will have them over to his family's home in Staten Island, where his mother Paula will cook for them.
"The Show With Vinny" premieres on May 2nd.
What Would Jesus Do?
He'd buy this.
The History Channels "The Bible" sold 525,000 copies on DVD and Blu-ray during its first week of release, and that's already enough to make it the best-selling miniseries of all time.
RHONJ FIGHT!!! And it didn't involve the ladies!
It happened Saturday at the grand opening of fellow cast mate KIM DEPAOLA'S new clothing store in Ridgewood, New Jersey.
Sources say a guy named John Karagiorgis came into the store and made fun of the Lauritas' 3-year-old son Nicholas, who is autistic. A nasty brawl ensued.
A woman who owns a beauty salon that shares the space with DePaola's clothing store says, quote, "Three of Kim D's clothes racks were destroyed and three of our custom sinks were broken. There was blood on the walls."
There are also reports that Jacqueline took off one of her shoes and bashed the guy on the head with it. He claims he still has a mark on his forehead from the heel.
Even though the attackers were charged, a source says, quote, "Everyone felt as though Karagiorgis came in there confrontational, and instigated the fight."
The three "Real Housewives" stars filed a counter-report against him. There's no word yet if he'll be brought up on charges.
It should be noted that Bravo's cameras were rolling during all of this.
Bravo has canceled KATHY GRIFFIN'S late-night talk show, "Kathy", after two seasons. There's no official word from the network, but Kathy talked about it during a stand up show in Cincinnati on Friday.
By the way, Kathy may already be working on her next move. Last month, we heard that she filmed a pilot for some show with ANDERSON COOPER at the CNN studios, but there weren't any details on what that was all about.
Anderson's syndicated talk show is also on the way out. Back in October, he announced that it wouldn't be returning for a third season.
Jordan!!?? Will you be ok?!
JONATHAN KNIGHT abruptly walked out on a NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK concert in New York last Thursday.
Jonathan looked uncomfortable from the beginning of the show. He hung out by himself behind the group as they were performing, and at one point, he even checked his phone in the middle of a song.
About halfway through their hour-long set, New Kids launched into their new song "Survive You". Jonathan has a solo in it . . . but when it came time, he couldn't get the words out.
DONNIE WAHLBERG joked, quote, "Jon, these people paid thousands of dollars for these tickets. For one reason: They heard that you're singing on this record." And he put his arm around him.
Jonathan laughed, but then walked off the stage shaking his head.
After the show, Jonathan Tweeted, quote, "I'm sorry."
The general consensus is that Jonathan just had a panic attack, and everything is COOL with the group . . . because he was back with New Kids when they performed on the "Today" show on Friday.
Jonathan has struggled with severe anxiety. 12 years ago . . . in an interview with OPRAH WINFREY . . . he said, quote, "The whole New Kids thing was crazy. The more it grew, the more I just felt like I was trapped.
"I just always had this feeling inside me of always being nervous and afraid of situations."
