DENNIS RODMAN doesn't like to sit still. The U.S. ambassador to the world - who visited with North Korea's supreme leader Kim Jong Un last month - is off to Rome, where he hopes to get an audience with the new pope. Of course, the cardinals haven't actually elected a new pontiff, but why let details get in the way of a good story. Rodman told TMZ on Tuesday that his "people" are trying to arrange a get-together with whoever succeeds Pope Benedict XVI. "I want to be anywhere in the world that I'm needed," Rodman told TMZ. " . . . I want to spread a message of peace and love throughout the world.

She did the red carpet as Little Red Riding Hood (in a blood-red Atelier Versace nun-inspired satin robe) with a pope-alike in full faux-Vatican regalia on her arm. Nicki Minaj at the Grammys. So scandalous! Minaj, 29, later performed "Roman Reloaded," with a stage show out of The Exorcist : She was strapped to a leather table, levitated, surrounded by roaring flames, and did a mock self-exorcism. The spectacle disgusted The View' s Sherri Shepherd . "I didn't know whether to dance or pull out my Bible and lay hands on the tv," she tweeted.

In court documents cited by TMZ, the former Sixers megastar requests the court to chuck Tawanna's divorce petition because he and Tawanna revived their union between November 2011 and February 2012, proving that their marriage is not "irretrievably broken," as Tawanna claimed in 2010.

Brad Pitt's soon-to-be father-in-law, Jon Voight, 73, really digs the politics of Brad's mom, Jane Pitt. She's a conservative — very much unlike her son, who once told the media he wouldn't marry Voight's daughter, Angelina Jolie, until same-sex marriage was legal. Angie's dad, also a conservative, says he applauds Jane's courage for speaking up against gay marriage. "Good for her!" Voight tells FOX411's Pop Tarts column in support of Jane, who has been inundated with hate mail since she wrote a letter to her local newspaper denouncing President Obama, whom she characterized as "a liberal who supports the killing of unborn babies and same-sex marriage.

IT'S BEEN years since Lindsay Lohan was taken seriously as a movie star, but it's also been awhile since she's been taken not-so-seriously as a Tattle star. Her bad behavior has become so . . . constant. Her mother's denials, her father's nuttiness, the whole family is this amazing web of dysfunction and drama. Yesterday the loco Lohans raised their game a notch when estranged daddy Michael Lohan arrived at Lindsay's apartment with the L.A. County Sheriff's Department.

Tyra Banks: Next chapter? Me too me too me too! That's Tyra Banks announcing the end of The Tyra Banks Show, her syndicated CW joint, after five years. Last shows will happen in 2010. Could Tyra, 36, not stand Oprah Winfrey getting the eyes for being a prominent black woman TV host calling it quits? Or was Tyra just tyra'd of the show? On her Web site, she says she'll concentrate on that all-engrossing cause, CW/UPN's America's Next Top Model, plus movies and unspecified "digital products," which sounds nastier than it probably is. Or is it as rumor has it: That La Banks is, shall we say, uterinely inhabited?

It's a trust thing We know it's still early on a Monday, so we'll try to keep this latest addition to the Mel/Oksana marathon simple.
