“Entertainment Tonight” says ROB LOWE has the inside track on replacing MICHAEL STRAHAN on “Live!”.

He was reportedly in the running back in 2012 too, before they ultimately chose Michael. And it sounds like he’s interested . . .

This week, he said, quote, “I [guest]-hosted it with Kelly and had the time of my life. I love her . . . I love being able to talk to an audience every morning like that and just being fun, counter-punching, being silly, and talking about cool stuff.”

There’s no word if Johnny and Amber broke up over the chaos that erupted when they illegally smuggled their two dogs into Australia . . . which resulted in their ridiculously awkward and insincere apology video.

Is Charlie Sheen Moving to a Retirement Home in Mexico?

Britain’s “Daily Mail” claims CHARLIE SHEEN is moving to Mexico.

They say he bought three homes next to each other in Rosarito, a quiet retirement community in Baja California. Charlie would make the middle house his primary home . . . and the other two are just so he won’t have any next-door neighbors.

His realtor says, quote, “He’s tired of the rat race of the United States and his life the way it is. He’s certainly not coming here to impress anyone with a huge mansion on the ocean.”

Charlie is only 50, so it’s early for him to “retire,” but then again his body has a LOT of mileage on it.

It’s unclear what Mexico thinks of this. Oh, wait a minute, maybe THIS is how DONALD TRUMP is going to get Mexico to pay for that wall . . . to keep Charlie Sheen OUT.


Bill Cosby Will Have to Stand Trial for Sexual Assault

All the accusations against BILL COSBY are FINALLY starting to actually go somewhere.

Yesterday, a Pennsylvania judge ruled that Cosby WILL have to go through a criminal trial for the alleged sexual assault of Andrea Constand.

She worked at Temple University back in 2004, and she claimed he invited her to his house, gave her some pills to “take the edge off” and sexually assaulted her. Of course, she’s one of more than 50 women to make claims against him.

Cosby is now free on $1 million bail. No trial date has been set yet. If he’s convicted, he faces up to 30 years in prison.


MC Hammer Has Turned His Back on Hammers . . . For Money!

Your universe is about to unravel.

MC HAMMER HATES HAMMERS. In a recent interview, Hammer said, quote, “Using hammers is always a scary proposition, man. You can hit your fingers. So I try my best to not have to hammer too many things.”

But that’s probably only because he’s a spokesman for new picture-hanging strips. Command hanging strips picture hangers that don’t use a hammer or nails. He even did a commercial for them where he says, “Stop hammer time!”

Celebrity Diets

If you’re struggling with weight, you might want to try the “Jimmy Kimmel Diet!”

Jimmy says he’s “pretty unpleasant to be around” on fasting days, survives on coffee, pickles, peanut butter and apple and egg whites, but never hits the gym and hates exercise.

Be warned –lots of doctors don’t condone the diet, including celebrity physician DR. OZ.


Do You Confuse Helen Hunt for Jodie Foster?

Poor HELEN HUNT had a serious case of the Mondays yesterday.

Helen headed to Starbucks to kickoff the day and a barista implied she knew her name. Helen was shocked to see the word: “Jody” on the side of her cup and has been confused for JODIE FOSTER on more than one occasion.

BTW, the barista spelled ‘Jody’ with a ‘Y’, where Jodie Foster spells her name with an ‘IE’ at the end, but that’s Starbucks for ya!

The other “celebrities” on the show include: Andrew Dice Clay and his wife, Ray J and Brandy, Lance Bass and his mom Diane…..and Brandi Glanville and LeAnn Rimes’ ex-husband Dean Sheremet.

She walked onto the stage holding a doll and when McCartney offered to sign it – she told him no – she wanted to play bass with him instead!

So, Paul handed her a bass and they played “Get Back” together. Leila was actually really good and the crowd went wild.

Iran Thinks Kim Kardashian is a Secret Agent

There’s a branch of the Iranian government called Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, and it exists to protect the country and its culture from outside influence.

They say they’re under direct, deliberate attack from an American top-secret spy, and that spy is Kim Kardashian!!! They say that KIM is secretly helping Instagram corrupt its women and children with her immoral and un-Islamic posts.

They even go so far as to say that Kim takes her orders from Instagram!! Kim denies it, but then again, isn’t that what a secret agent WOULD do?

While all of this seems like a joke, the Revolutionary Guard has already arrested dozens of people for what they consider immoral and un-Islamic activity on social media.

Her fans didn’t like that, and attacked Chick-fil-A on social media. But it’s hard to hate on Chick-fil-A, because it’s delicious. Eventually, there were more and more posts saying things like: “I can’t lie, Chick-fil-A’s lemonade is GOOD and “I’m a Beyoncé fan!”


When Lenny Kravitz Wants To Shop, He Shuts Down The Store

Lenny Kravitz isn’t shy about flaunting his rock-hard abs, or his star power.

Lenny shut down the high-end clothing store, Saint Laurent on Rodeo Drive because he felt like doing a little shopping – but didn’t want to be interrupted by all of the “little people.”

It wasn’t about privacy, though, because Lenny didn’t bother to pull the blinds on the huge floor-to-ceiling windows – he just left them open as he strutting around topless and trying on several different shirts before checking-out and leaving with several bags.

After Lenny was gone, the store re-opened to the public.

The Staff Of “Live” Is Mostly “Team Michael” – NOT “Team Kelly”

Today will be Michael Strahan’s last day on “Live!” and we are finding out some behind the scenes gossip from staff members.

TMZ is reporting that most of the people behind the scenes are “Team Michael” because they feel like Kelly Ripa is a hypocrite. Publicly, Kelly talks about respect and the show being like a family — but in private, she hasn’t been showing respect to anyone – let alone treating them like “family!”

Staff members also support Michael because they don’t think he did anything wrong and was just following his boss’ orders. The show’s staff is also worried about losing their jobs because it’s rumored that Kelly wants to move the show to LA.

Bullock thinks he’d make a great father to her two children and reportedly has her attorneys hard at work on an iron-clad prenuptial agreement that would give him nothing if he’s unfaithful.


The “CSI” Franchise Is Over After 16 Years  

CBS canceled “CSI: Cyber” after two seasons, meaning that the “CSI” franchise is finally done after 16 years.

America has watched attractive CSIs investigate MANY THOUSANDS of murders on CBS and on Spike at three in the morning. That’s many thousands of murders MORE than they investigate in real life, because most of what they did is WELL outside their job description.

Real crime scene investigators analyze evidence; they don’t patrol the beaches of Miami in Hummers, conduct raids, kick down the door of the bad guys, or disarm bombs.

The original “CSI” ended last year. “CSI: New York” ended in 2013, and the most ridiculous one “CSI: Miami” ended in 2012.

Def Leppard Met Students from a Deaf School Whose Mascot Is a Leopard

The Arkansas School for the Deaf actually has a leopard for a mascot. So, they’re the DEAF LEOPARDS.

It has nothing to do with the band DEF LEPPARD. They’ve been the Leopards since at least 1941, 18 years before singer JOE ELLIOTT was born.

Anyway, someone started a petition asking the band to stop by while they were in Little Rock for a show. It got less than 1,500 signatures . . . but the band DID see it.

They were in Little Rock last night. Unfortunately, they didn’t have time to actually go to the school. But they DID take a photo with four athletes from the school next to a replica of their scoreboard.

(Here’s a local news report on the meet-up.)

The DEA searched PRINCE’s Paisley Park compound yesterday, so it’s really starting to look like he was involved in something shady with prescription drugs.

Reports say the feds are checking to see if there’s a case to be made against any doctors or pharmacies for bogus prescriptions.

They’re also looking into the son of the rehab doctor who was at Prince’s home when he died. He had a backpack full of synthetic opiates with him. They’re used to wean people off actual opiates, but that may not have been on the up-and-up.
