While Tattle was in Toronto, son of Tattle handled this week's chores. But now we're back to clean up the mess.

Friday

J.K. Rowling will get paid a ton of dough to write the screenplay for the Warner Bros. movie "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them," based on her textbook for the magical world of Harry Potter.

Thursday

The Internet was a buzz with a National Enquirer report that Tiger Woods' girlfriend Lindsey Vonn was seen canoodling with an older gentleman at the Justin Timberlake/Jay-Z concert in Miami. Vonn denied any anti-Tiger behavior. We think the Enquirer snagged her in a Vonn trap. We also think Tiger's had enough problems with women who worked the (ski) pole.

Wednesday

Tom Hanks had jury duty. You know, if you're going to have one person in Hollywood deciding your fate, Hanks is probably not a bad one.

Tuesday

After a particularly rough tackle in a game of soccer, One Direction heartthrob (isn't that a redundancy?) Louis Tomlinson vomited on the sideline. And fathers dragged to One Direction concerts everywhere smiled.

Howard Stern's longtime right hand, Robin Quivers, announced on Stern's SiriusXM radio show that she's been battling cancer for the past year. Quivers said doctors removed a tumor "the size of a grapefruit." Stern was so upset during the segment he did not remark that the grapefruit-sized tumor was as big as one of his testicles.

Monday

Tami Erin, who played Pippi Longstocking back in the '80s, announced that she was going to release her sex tape after all, thus thwarting the allegedly former "piece of sh-- boyfriend" who was going to release it without her.

Not hooked up

Taylor Swift and Aussie actor Brenton Thwaites. They were linked in Toronto. He unlinked them to Life & Style.

Knocked up

Emily Blunt and John Krasinski are expecting their first child.

Jordana Brewster and producer/husband Andrew Form had a baby son via surrogate.

Mario Lopez and wife Courtney also had a baby boy, the old-fashioned way.

Pre-nup?

Former Hugh Hefner girlfriend Holly Madison married Pasquale Rotella (father of her daughter Rainbow) in Disneyland.

Patrick Stewart married Sunny Ozell in Lake Tahoe. Ian McKellen officiated. The former Capt. Picard was beaming.

Former Bradley Cooper girlfriend Zoe Saldana tied the knot with Marco Perego in London back in June but just decided to tell people now.

Village People cowboy Randy Jones legally lassoed his partner of 30 years, Will Grega, yesterday in New York. Disco followed.

Re-upped

CBS has renewed "Big Brother" and "Big Brother: After Dark." CBS president Les Moonves must like to keep wife Julie Chen busy.

Laid up

According to Rolling Stone, Bon Jovi drummer Tico Torres had his appendix removed . . . surgically.

Held up

After a less-than-stellar opening at the box office for "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones," the sequel has been put on hold indefinitely, according to TheWrap.com. Production was to start next week.

Rising up

Variety reports that Mark Burnett and Roma Downey have made a deal with 20th Century Fox to cut a 135-minute "Son of God" feature film out of their 10-hour miniseries of "The Bible." The film will focus on the birth, life and resurrection of you-know-who, played by Portuguese actor Diogo Morgado.
