'Me, too!,' says Miley
Trying not to be outdone, sketchy chanteuse Miley Cyrus, cruelly felled by a bug, and then an allergic reaction to antibiotics, has announced makeup dates for the interrupted "Bangerz" tour. She engulfs the Wells Fargo Center Aug. 1. Tix are $49.50-$89.50. Information: 1-800-298-4200, comcasttix.com.
Clooney roped in
They said it couldn't be done. And now it all but is. Monday, it was confirmed that George Clooney, most beautiful, confirmed, freest-as-the-breeze bachelor ever (OK, he was actually married once, to Talia Balsam, but he cleared that up in 1993), is to wed Amal Alamuddin, beautiful genius international human rights lawyer for the firm Doughty Street Chambers in the U.K. (They were the ones who spilled the official legumes.) So she's also a moral icon! Wow. Poor George didn't stand a chance. He's a grizzled, tottering 52; she's an overwhelmingly splendorous 36. No details yet on where, when - or how much that ring weighing down Amal's finger cost.
Ruckus at Paul & Edie's
Paul Simon 72, and his goddesslike wife, SideShow favorite Edie Brickell, 48, are not feelin' too groovy after being charged with disorderly conduct up in New Canaan, Conn. Around 8:30 p.m. Saturday, police went to their home, where they found (they say) signs of physical violence and minor injuries (unclear to whom). Married since 1992, Simon and Brickell have three children. His two previous marriages were to Carrie Fisher and Peggy Harper. Paul and Edie walked into court hand-in-hand for arraignment Monday in Norwalk. The lawyer who represents them both, Allan Cramer, calls the incident "much less than nothing."
Ferguson is the next to go
A few weeks after David Letterman announced he'd be retiring from the CBS late-night television lineup, Craig Ferguson did the same. Ferguson, host of The Late Late Show since 2005, told his studio audience during Monday's taping that he will step down at the end of the year. Ferguson's show airs after Letterman's, at 12:35 a.m. on weekdays. The move was no surprise after CBS announced that Stephen Colbert will replace Letterman next year. There was a time when Ferguson, whose show won a Peabody Award in 2009, was considered a strong contender for that job. "CBS and I are not getting divorced, we are consciously uncoupling," Ferguson said. "But we will still spend holidays together and share custody of the fake horse and robot skeleton, both of whom we love very much."
