Lucy, the scary version Residents of Celoron, N.Y., are proud TV and film icon Lucille Ball was born in their town. They love her. Dearly. What they don't love so much is a statue of Lucy by artist Dave Poulin that was erected in town in 2009. It's not just that the comedian looks like a demented serial killer. The face is all wrong - the eyes big and monstrous, the teeth threatening and prominent, the hair kind of masculine. Concerned citizens have spent six years trying to persuade town leaders to redo the piece or get rid of it. Celoron Mayor Scott Schrecengost tells the Post-Journal in Jamestown, N.Y., he doesn't want to waste any more taxpayer money on the statue.

It's a weird celeb world. Film stars now routinely draw out breakups (see Justin Bieber / Selena Gomez , below) forever for the PR of it.

(She's like a Roman Legionnaire, falling on her sword rather than risk capture by the Goths.) Pyrrhic victory, anyone? Several Unnamed Sources tell London's Daily Mail and MTV News that reality TV's very own Darth Vader planned to cut Brit, who was hired to bring some much-needed spark (flare, glow, glitter)
