Bob Saget & the twins

There are revelations a-plenty in comic Bob Saget's new memoir, Dirty Daddy: The Chronicles of a Family Man Turned Filthy Comedian. He explains how he could play a sweet family man on Full House, yet maintain the raunchiest stand-up act this side of Richard Pryor (his favorite comic, Saget tells USA Today). But the most important revelation is about the Olsen twins, who were 9 months old when they joined Full House.

"I actually did change Mary-Kate's and Ashley's diapers once. And that was four years ago," he writes, adding, "Ashley came up with the punch line to that joke."

Kat gets out the klaws

Lovely, nutty Katherine Heigl is suing drugstore chain Duane Reid for $6 million. See, she went to the market one day, came out, some paparazzo took a picture, and Duane Reid used it in a tweet: "Love a quick #DuaneReade run? Even @KatieHeigl can't resist shopping #NYC;s favorite drugstore." She asked them to take it down, and for some reason, they didn't, and now she's suing them for misappropriating her image without authorization. And that is not that good.

Gossip petits fours

During his annual Schieffer Symposium on the News in Texas, Bob Schieffer announced Wednesday that NBC's Jane Pauley will join CBS News Sunday Morning as a contributor. . . . Officials in Britain have released to the family the body of rock star Bob Geldof's daughter, Peaches. An autopsy was inconclusive, though toxicology results are pending. . . . Rapper Big Sean has called off his engagement to Glee chanteuse Naya Rivera.
