If Hasselbeck really is leaving the show, she'll be following fellow panelist Joy Behar to the door. Behar, 70, announced this week she'll vacate her place on the couch in August.
The Biebs goes off
Bodyguards had to restrain Justin Bieber Friday morning when he exchanged nasty, nasty words with a paparazzo in London.
As the Biebster's minders guided him vigorously through a photog phalanx, one of the shooters cried, "Assault" and followed up with an F-word barrage. The lensman questioned the intellectual acuity of the star, who was by then safely stowed away in an SUV, where he could have stayed.
Instead, the 19-year-old superstar burst forth on the crest of his own F-wave, with all the redundancy characteristic of such discourse: "I'll [naughty gerund] beat the [naughty noun] out of you." His minders calmly shoved him back inside the vehicle and drove away. You can watch it all on www.tmz.com, which also transcribes the more eloquent quotes.
"Ahhhhh! Rough morning," tweeted Justin, whose final concert in London was scheduled for Friday night. "Trying to feel better for this show tonight but let the paps get the best of me. Sometimes when people r shoving cameras in your face all day and yelling the worst thing possible at u . . . well I'm human. Rough week."
The "rough week" referred to a shortness-of-breath incident at Thursday's concert. The singer's rep said medics pronounced him OK. He was also checked out in a hospital, the Associated Press reports.
Kelly Osbourne is in the hospital after having a seizure, according to the AP. Docs are trying to figure out the cause. Osbourne, 28, posted a photo on Twitter Thursday showing her with an IV in her left arm. She thanked her fans for their "beautiful well wishes." The daughter of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne was hospitalized Thursday after collapsing on the set of E!'s Fashion Police.
So, what's up with the Miley Cyrus- Liam Hemsworth betrothal? Miley partied in North Hollywood Thursday night without Liam and without her engagement rock, reports Us Weekly. Matter of fact, a dark-haired man accompanied the 20-year-old chanteuse to the shindig. Us identified him as Liam's friend Paul Khoury. Miley tweeted Wednesday that she hadn't called off her wedding, but the buzz among those in the know is that the relationship is going badly, says Us.
