Fergie launched her solo debut, "The Duchess," to much success in 2006. It featured five top-5 hits, including "Fergalicious" and "Big Girls Don't Cry."
Duhamel has appeared in the "Transformer" films and most recently in "Safe Haven."
In a precedent-setting move, Khloe Kardashian
has reportedly been fired from "X Factor."
Tough break, Lamar.
She thus becomes the first Kardashian to ever be fired from anything.
According to the New York Post, her co-host, Mario Lopez, is expected to return to Simon Cowell's third-tier karaoke show.
* Speaking of Mario, on "Extra," he asked Esquire's Sexiest Woman Mila Kunis if she was interested in playing Anastasia Steele in the housewife porn movie version of "Fifty Shades of Grey."
Mila's coy reply: "I'm not disinterested."
The write stuff
Everyone knows a great movie starts with great writing, and the CIA thrillers "Argo" and "Zero Dark Thirty" won the top screenplay honors from the Writers Guild of America.
The guild's adapted screenplay award Sunday went to Chris Terrio for "Argo." Mark Boal won the prize for original screenplay for "Zero Dark Thirty."
Director Malik Bendjelloul won the documentary award for "Searching for Sugar Man," his portrait of acclaimed but largely forgotten 1970s musician Rodriguez.
On the TV side, "Breaking Bad" was chosen the best-written drama series, "Louie" was chosen best-written comedy series and "Girls" won as new series.
* But the big news at the WGA
Awards, according to Us Weekly, is that Amy Poehler showed up with bangs.
* Longtime reality-TV couple
Ethan Zohn and Jenna Morasca are splitting after a decade.
"It is with much consideration and a heavy heart that we are announcing that after 10 years of a loving relationship, the decision was made to move on without each other," the couple said in an exclusive statement to People magazine, for whom Ethan had previously written about his battle against Hodgkin's lymphoma.
Jenna, 32, won "Survivor:
Amazon" and Ethan, 38, won "Survivor: Africa." As a team, they competed on "The Amazing
Race" and starred on their own show, "Everyday Health."
Last February, Ethan underwent a stem-cell transplant and in May he attended Jenna's graduation from Columbia University, where she earned a master's degree in counseling and clinical psychology.
You might wonder why, after all that, they couldn't make it work.
* Milano Market, the NYC deli
that frisked Forest Whitaker ("The Last King of Scotland") after it accused him of shoplifting, is sorry.
A rep told TMZ.com, "The
management of Milano Market deeply regrets the wrongful actions of our employee in stopping and frisking Forest Whitaker.
"While we can not delve into the employee's mind-set, we do not believe that he was racially motivated in his actions, simply misguided."
Hey, it's a deli. You've got to expect a little bologna.
Milano Market seeks to reach out to Whitaker to make a donation to a charity of his choice.
* She may not be on "The Voice"
this spring, but Christina Aguilera won't be penniless.
BANGShowbiz.com says she has sold her Beverly Hills, 90210 mansion for $13.5 million.
It's been on the market for two years.
Christina bought the 10,000- square-foot home from the Osbournes, who lived there during their MTV reality show.
The 6BR, 9BTH shack has a music room, a game room and a luxury pool in the garden.
* Alec Baldwin's young bride
may be having
a baby, but he's the one who's hormonal.
Or he's not dealing well with the end of "30 Rock."
Alec reportedly saw retired New York Police
Detective G.N. Miller staking out his Manhattan home on Sunday as a paparazzo. The New York Post reported Alec is alleged to have called Miller, who is black, a "crackhead" and unleashed other insults about him and his mother, Miller wrote in his statement.
Alec also allegedly told the photog to orally stimulate a portion of his anatomy.
The Post said that shortly before the altercation, a female Post reporter asked Alec about the lawsuit against his yoga-teaching wife, Hilaria. Alec, and this is according to the Post, grabbed her arm and said, "I want you to choke to death."
Someone needs to take his wife's yoga class.
