GLAAD slams 'Duck Dynasty'

Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson doesn't hold back when it comes to his beliefs.

"We're Bible-thumpers who just happened to end up on television," he tells GQ.

Phil, 67, gets fired up when it comes to the subject of sin.

"Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman," he says.

GLAAD rep Wilson Cruz isn't happy. "Phil's decision to push vile and extreme stereotypes is a stain on A&E and his sponsors," he said Wednesday.

How old is Brad Pitt?

Soooo old, his birthday is being celebrated by AARP the Magazine, a publication of the retired persons' cabal. Twice voted People's sexiest man alive ('95 and '00), Brad turned the big 5-0 on Wednesday.

That's the age one's eligible to become an AARP member.

"Acclaimed Actor, Producer, Humanitarian, and Family Man, Mr. Pitt Joins the Club," reads a mock AARP mag cover the org is sending around.

30 years after 'Body Heat'

Kathleen Turner was 27 when her steamy neo-noir film, Body Heat, was released in '81. She's not so young anymore. "I don't look like I did 30 years ago. Get over it!" Turner tells Closer Weekly. "I'm going to be 60 next year. Sixty! And even I say to myself, 'OK, we can't pretend anymore here.' "

More Kardashian trouble?

Khloé Kardashian isn't the only member of America's true First Family to break up with her man. In Touch Weekly cites unnamed insiders who say Khloé's sis Kourtney may be losing her bf, Scott Disick.

SD, who has two children with Kourtney, won't let go of his penchant for partying and has moved out of the Kardashian domicile, says In Touch. And he's been seen hanging with a Hot Young Woman. "Kourtney is devastated," says Unnamed Source.

Meanwhile, Khloé tweeted on Wednesday, calling her own bust-up "heartbreaking and torture to my soul. Please, I don't need the extra rumors and BS right now."

One more for Bruce brood

The 58-year-old mega-star Bruce Willis (remember when he was young and sweet on Moonlighting? Well, not so much sweet, maybe) is going to be a father for the fifth time. The Red star, who has three daughters with Demi Moore, is expecting his second child with still-shiny newish wife Emma Heming-Willis, 35. Their first, Mabel Ray, is 20 months old.

Beyoncé is the boss

Beyoncé's self-titled fifth studio album, which she released on iTunes without any P.R. fanfare, has sold more than a million copies worldwide in just six days and set a record for iTunes, the company said Wednesday. Needless to say, it has taken the top spot on the Billboard album chart, selling 617,000 units in America, according to Nielsen SoundScan. B is the only woman to take No. 1 on the chart with her first five studio albums.

Garth Brooks' Blame It All On My Roots: Five Decades of Influences, available exclusively at Wal-Mart, slips to No. 2 with 172,000, while Kelly Clarkson's holiday album, Wrapped in Red, shows with 136,000.
