Bolaris: Don't tase me, bro!

Posted: August 11, 2014

DON'T LOOK NOW, but the lazy days of summer are tick-tocking away. Before we all know it September will be here. But don't call Hollywood lazy. The celebs are closing deals, getting married and buying houses. Some, unfortunately, have gotten tased. Read all about it in Celebrityville.


Weather guy John Bolaris has burn marks on his chest and it ain't because of the sun. Instead, he alleges a Hamptons cabdriver used a stun gun on him during a dispute, reported. And it wasn't about the weather.

Bolaris, a weatherman, claims that over the July Fourth weekend, he hailed down a cab whose driver said he would take another group of people standing near Bolaris and his fiancee. An argument ensued and "the next thing I know, he gets out of the cab, slugs me and then tasers me," Bolaris told

The driver was charged with felony assault, harassment and other offenses, the East Hampton Star reported.


Sorry, ladies. It's official.

Outgoing single heartthrob George Clooney and his fiancee, lawyer Amal Alamuddin, have posted a legal notice in England declaring their intention to marry in Italy.


The couple the world can't get enough of, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, have plans to buy a 3.5-acre estate formerly owned by Lisa Marie Presley, reports. North's new casa, five minutes from their previous digs at Kris Jenner's house, has two pools, two spas, two barbecue centers and its very own vineyard, according to E! News.


* "Big Bang Theory" stars Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki have agreed on new, three-year deals that will pay them $1 million per episode. Twenty-plus shows a year. Do the math. Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar weren't as lucky. The pair is still negotiating and will probably be forced to settle for a smaller sum.

* Sherri Shepherd is a new mom. Maybe. The outgoing "The View" host and her estranged hubby's surrogate gave birth in Pennsylvania. Her soon-to-be ex, Lamar Sally, was present for the delivery.

Shepherd - who's claiming Sally defrauded her when she signed the surrogate documents - disavows maternity of the child. (BTW, she's headed to Broadway after her "View" run ends Monday to play Cinderella's wicked stepmother.)


The New York Post reported that Beyonce and Jay Z are booking separate rooms in separate hotels on their current On the Run Tour.

Broadway Bound

* BET talk-show host Keke Palmer will take over the tiara, playing the lead role in "Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella" on Sept. 9. The 21-year-old will be the first African-American to play the part on Broadway. ( Brandy played Cinderella in a 1997 TV movie.) * "Curb Your Enthusiasm" fans take note: Larry David will be making his acting and writing debut on Broadway this fall in "Fish in the Dark," the New York Times reported. David's first play is an ensemble comedy about a death in a family, the paper said. David hasn't worked on "Curb" since 2011, but he hasn't ruled out another season of the improv comedy. "But if I did do another season, this play would push that schedule back," he told the Times.
