They're doing *whaaaat*??
Al Roker and Matt Lauer say they'll undergo prostate exams live on Thursday's Today show. This continues a tradition. In 2000, then-host Katie Couric had a colonoscopy. In 2005, she went for a mammogram.
Morrissey makes it clear(?)
Hooray (we think?) for singer Morrissey, who's given us a quote both totally ambiguous and totally excellent. In his autobiography, titled, simply, Autobiography, he details his love affair with Jake Owen Walters. But, he says on website True to You: "Unfortunately, I am not homosexual. In technical fact, I am humasexual. I am attracted to humans. But, of course, not many." We do not understand, but we still like the drift.
Sheen escalates custody war
Charlie Sheen has gone both crazy and nuclear. He is trying to make sure ex-wife Brooke Mueller doesn't get custody of their 4-year-old twins, Bob and Max. Despite a gag order, he ranted to TMZ about Brooke being dangerous to the boys. Meantime, other ex Denise Richards, who's trying to end her temp guardianship of the twins, has posted photos of little Bob, seeming to show injuries to his head.
Vargas confirms rehab stint
Elizabeth Vargas, coanchor of ABC's 20/20, has confirmed she is seeking treatment for alcohol abuse. She's been at an undisclosed rehab center for a few weeks already, which explains why she's not been seen on the show in a while. In a statement, Vargas says, "I will deal with this challenge one day at a time." Insiders say she expects to return to the air in a few weeks.
Other news in the news
Anne Hathaway, says her rep, is not pregnant. It wasn't us; we swear it! . . . In the wake of revelations, dismaying the male world, by Marie Osmond that she had surgery to reduce her E-cup breastage, Heidi Montag, former MTV star and queen of the surgical ward, reveals she has reduced her F-cup implants to C-cup. She tells Us Weekly the old faux breasts weighed "about three pounds each." Makes your back ache just thinking about it. "I'm the new, new Heidi," she tells Us Weekly. [Your joke here.]
