Kim Kardashian Dares You to Work as Hard as She Does

KIM KARDASHIAN was asked about her haters, and how she responds to them.

The Who Stopped a Show to Complain About Pot Smoking

THE WHO stopped a show in Long Island on Wednesday to complain about the excessive amount of marijuana smoke that was wafting up to the stage.

ROGER DALTREY threatened to end the show early if they didn’t stop. So, is this a case of some old fogies being hypocritical about a vibe they used to participate in? Not really.

In the past, Roger has said that while he used to smoke pot, he’s developed a severe allergy to cigarette and marijuana smoke, and it can completely shut down his voice. And now, the crowd is asked not to smoke at Who shows.


“Letterman’s” Finale Drew His Biggest Audience In Decades

DAVID LETTERMAN’S last episode of “The Late Show” drew nearly 13.8 million viewers on Wednesday night.

That’s his biggest audience in two decades!   Several other notable episodes came close: 13.5 million people tuned in when Dave finally had OPRAH on so they could end their “feud” . . . and 11.7 million people watched Dave’s first episode back after having heart surgery in February of 2000.

However, Dave’s finale’ fell about 800,000 viewers short of the audience for JAY LENO’S goodbye on “The Tonight Show” last year.

Letterman’s Last “Late Show” Included an All-Star Top 10 List

DAVID LETTERMAN signed off for good last night with a show that was heavy on clips from his last 30-odd years on TV.

But one of the highlights was an all-star list of the “Top 10 Things I’ve Always Wanted to Say to Dave”. It was delivered by, in this order, Alec Baldwin, Barbara Walters, Steve Martin, Jerry Seinfeld, Jim Carrey, Chris Rock, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Peyton Manning, Tina Fey, and Bill Murray.

The show started with video of the late President Gerald Ford saying, quote, “My fellow Americans, our long, national nightmare is over.” Then all the LIVING presidents said it, ending with PRESIDENT OBAMA, who added, quote, “Letterman is retiring.” Then Letterman walked into the frame and said, quote, “You’re just kidding, right?” (Here’s video.)

Letterman’s final monologue started with a killer joke: “So it’s beginning to look like I’m not going to get the ‘Tonight Show’.” The FOO FIGHTERS closed out the night with “Everlong” . . . the song he asked them to play for his first show back from quintuple-bypass surgery in 2000.


Are Jay Z and Beyoncé Separating?

Here’s some pretty juicy tabloid trash for you! “In Touch Weekly” claim JAY Z and BEYONCÉ are separating.

A “source” says, quote, “Things have been terrible for a long time. Beyoncé wants a trial separation.”

The source says that they’ve tried therapy, but it isn’t working. Apparently, Jay Z has been cheating and Beyoncé is fed up with it, so she’s “moving away.”

George Clooney Says Amal Left Him Hanging When He Proposed

Most women wouldn’t have to think about it if GEORGE CLOONEY proposed to them. But AMAL ALAMUDDIN apparently isn’t most women.

In an interview with “CBS This Morning”, George says he “dropped it on her” when he proposed, quote, “We’d never talked about it . . . there wasn’t like a, ‘Maybe we should get married’ [conversation].”

What he did was he got down on one knee. He says, quote, “I asked her, and she just kept saying, ‘Oh my, God,’ and ‘Wow,’ and we just sat there. And finally, I just said, ‘Listen, I’m 53, I’ve been on my knee for about 28 minutes so I gotta get an answer out of this because I’m gonna throw a hip out! I might not be able to stand back up.'”


Beyoncé Emptied an Expensive Bottle of Champagne Into a Hot Tub for a Music Video, and People Are Upset

NICKI MINAJ and BEYONCÉ have released a new video for “Feeling Myself” on Tidal . . . and there’s a picture going around from the filming, where Beyoncé empties an expensive bottle of champagne into a hot tub.

It’s a bottle of Armand de Brignac, a.k.a. ‘Ace of Spades’ . . . and a single bottle could cost anywhere from $300 to HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of dollars. It’s unclear how expensive the one in the video is, but people freaked out online about it, saying things like: Quote, “Beyoncé, pouring my college tuition fees into a hot tub”, and, quote, “Even just $1,000 could have completely changed someone’s life, like someone finally being able to eat lunch. So seeing her pour out a $20,000 bottle into a pool is a slap in the face.”

For what it’s worth, Jay Z owns that champagne, so it’s likely nobody paid for it. After all, if publicity is what they were looking for, it’s clearly working.


KFC Is Bringing Back Colonel Sanders

KFC just announced they’re bringing back Colonel Sanders.

He’ll be in their new TV commercials starting Monday, in honor of KFC’s 75th anniversary. The original Colonel Sanders wasn’t a character, he was a real businessman named Harland Sanders, and he started Kentucky Fried Chicken. Unfortunately he died in 1980.

So for the new ad campaign, he’ll be played by Darrell Hammond from “Saturday Night Live”. He’s the guy who does Bill Clinton, and Sean Connery in the ‘Celebrity Jeopardy’ skits with Will Ferrell.

Is It On Between Jennifer Lopez and Mariah Carey?

At the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday, JENNIFER LOPEZ was caught fiddling with her phone while MARIAH CAREY was performing.

It looks like she’s checking Instagram, but it’s hard to tell. She also talks with her date CASPER SMART during the performance. By the end, she’s finally paying attention . . .and when the house lights came up, she clapped.

A lot of people are calling this a “diss,” do you agree? Although, it’s hard to believe that celebrities aren’t constantly messing with their phones or talking while something is happening onstage. This is the Billboard Music Awards . . . not the Oscars.

(Here’s video.)


Bill O’Reilly is Denying He Abused His Ex-Wife

BILL O’REILLY recently lost a bitter, three-year custody battle with his ex-wife Maureen McPhilmy, when she was awarded custody of their two children.

Documents in the case are sealed, but a so-called “source” says the evidence included testimony that Bill dragged her down a staircase by her neck, while his young daughter watched.

The girl’s 16 now, and told the story to a court-appointed forensic examiner. Bill issued a statement saying, quote, “All allegations against me in these circumstances are 100% false. I am going to respect the court-mandated confidentiality put in place to protect my children and will not comment any further.”


Is Nashville Getting Annoyed with Aging Rock Stars Trying to Go Country?

Does it bother you when aging rock stars like STEVEN TYLER and BRET MICHAELS use their celebrity to launch country careers? Well, it’s definitely annoying some of the country performers.

CLAY WALKER tells the “Modesto Bee”, quote, “I can’t stand to see outdated rock ‘n’ rollers coming in to play country music. That really [ticks] me off. We have great singers, great country musicians. “There’s no reason we have to dilute it by letting people in the format that don’t have any business being in the format.”

Reality TV Roundup

Former reality star JON GOSSELIN (of “Jon & Kate Plus 8″ fame) is reportedly looking to get custody of his 11-year-old daughter, HANNAH –but not any of the other seven children.

A “source” tells E! Online that Jon is seeking custody of just Hannah because she is unhappy living with her mother, KATE, who’s had primary custody of the couple’s eight children since they divorced six years ago.

It might be difficult to convince a judge that he’s ready to get custody –as of last fall, Jon not only was single, but struggling financially, and had been recently evicted from his home.

RadarOnline is reporting that Patrick had a “very messy and emotional” fling with a much younger staffer on the ABC drama, which is what ultimately led to his longtime absence from the show before suddenly having his character killed off in a car accident.

Johnny Depp’s Dogs Escape Australia Before Being Put Down

Johnny Depp’s dogs got out of Australia just hours before officials promised to euthanize them.

“Boo” and “Pistol” boarded a private jet back to the U.S. yesterday, meaning they will not be euthanized on Saturday as the Australia’s Minister for Agriculture had threatened to do.

The Minister said Johnny and Amber Heard never declared the dogs when they touched down in Australia last month, so they were never quarantined – which is required for all animals entering the country.

Over sixty-five hundred people signed a petition to “save Johnny Depp’s dogs,” while others started a countdown entitled, “It’s almost time to kill Johnny Depp’s dogs.”

It’s shocking that this rumor took more than a week to get going, but here it is: TIGER WOODS

The source says, quote, “It wasn’t with anyone special. He really wanted Lindsey to be the one, but he

blew it again. He can’t help himself. He’s got an addiction. He relapsed.”

A Russian newspaper ran an article questioning whether the Duchess of Cambridge really gave birth last Saturday.

One source said that there is nothing that can make a woman — even if she gave birth with the help of the very best doctors — stand up 5 hours after giving birth — and leave the clinic on her feet.
