Travolta accuser No. 2: Arbitration

The second Anonymous Masseur who lodged a sexual battery complaint against John Travolta is willing to withdraw his lawsuit and enter arbitration, says his lawyer.

“We can set up our own private trial. I’m willing to do that,” Okorie Okorocha tells the New York Daily News, “and I’ve proposed that to [Travolta’s lawyer] Marty Singer.” Adds Okorocha, “He hasn’t agreed, but he hasn’t said no.” Travolta has dismissed the masseurian claims against him as bogus.

Glanville: I was going to kill Rimes!

Famed hausfrau Brandi Glanville once was filled with murderous rage at her ex-husband Eddie Cibrian’s new wife, LeAnn Rimes. Glanville almost exploded when Rimes showed up at a Glanville son’s soccer practice. (Glanville and Cibrian have two boys, Mason, 8, and Jake, 5.) “My blood was boiling,” Glanville, 39, tells Aussie mag NW HQ, “and I thought I was going to kill her.”

“That was the first time I saw her that way,” she says. “She was … in my soccer chair, under my tent, she’s got my kid on her lap and she’s with my husband.” Glanville’s marriage to Cibrian collapsed when it was revealed he was having an affair with Rimes. Glanville concedes that Rimes is “good to my kids, they love her and that’s all I could ask for.”

Today in the celeb meat market

Rihanna this weekend posted behind-the-scenes pics of her “Where Have You Been” music vid shoot showing her topless save for a delicate smattering of (faux) crocodile scales glued to her skin in a bra shape.

Speaking of crocodile-skin decadence, the New York Daily News has discovered that the flash backpack from the Olsen twins’ fashion line, The Row, which Ashley Olsen just gifted to Jessica Biel, is not the top-of-the-line, $39,000 croc skin version. It’s only the cheapo budget version that retails for $3,900.

Auctioneer Profiles in History (www.profilesinhistory.com) in July will auction off Natalie Wood’s white Mercedes 250SL Roadster/Coupé Automatic the star bought in 1967. It is expected to fetch $30,000 to $50,000.

An ‘Avengers’ girl for Hemsworth

Chris Hemsworth, 28, who wields his mighty hammer Mjolnir with such sexy pizzazz in Thor, and his wife, Spanish actor Elsa Pataky (Beyond Re-Animator), 35, welcomed their first baby, a girl named India Rose, in London on Friday, Us Weekly says.

Granddad Bob Geldof gushes

“He was incredibly gentle with Astala,” says new mom Peaches Geldof of her dad, Irish rocker turned world savior turned grump Bob Geldof’s first encounter with Peaches’ first child, baby boy Astala Dylan Willow Geldof-Cohen. He took Astala aside “and was so quiet, which isn’t something my dad’s renowned for.” Bob, 60, isn’t so fond of the name, no doubt inflicted on the baby by his dad, S.C.U.M. front man Thomas Cohen. “Yuck!” London’s Daily Mail quotes Bob as saying. “It’s a girl’s name, let’s face it.”

Kristen Stewart: %$#! And @*&^!!

Kristen Stewart’s hidden talent comes out in a chat with Elle mag: The Twilight darling curses better (worse?) than any grizzled rum-guzzling sailor you’re likely to meet.

Yet she remains so delicate. K-Stew, 22, says she hated having to ride horses for her new pic, Snow White and the Huntsman. “You have to basically tell that thing who’s boss, and I didn’t want to do that,” she says. “I was like, ‘No, do your thing.’.” K-Stew also complains that her childhood was “so [bleep] perfect,” she never got to see the darkness and pain regular Joes put up with every single day.

“You can learn so much from bad things,” says K-Stew. “I feel boring. I feel like, Why is everything so easy for me?” And yes, Kristen is still dating that bleepingly most perfect of all boyfriends, Robert Pattinson. So sad.
