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.

TMZ says Allen Iverson wants to stop - abort, annul, abrogate - divorce proceedings, sputtering on since March 2010, when estranged wife Tawanna first filed papers.

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.

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?

Or is it as rumor has it: That La Banks is, shall we say, uterinely inhabited?

Saw 3D debuted as the weekend's No. 1 movie, but it still couldn't top sequel standards for the franchise. Although it generated $24.2 million - that's $10 million more than last year's Saw VI - the second, third, fourth, and fifth films in the series all topped $30 million over their opening weekends.
