“This will be the third marriage for Kardashian and the first for West.”[HuffPo]

Have you been keeping up with the latest news in the impending wedding nuptials of Kim Kardashian and baby rapper daddy Kanye West? No?

Well, the good folks at TMZ have, which is why they broke news that Kimye has already obtained a marriage license . . . which means they’re most likely already hitched.

“Kim and Kanye are now married on paper. They got their license in California over the past few days,” a source recently reported to Life & Style magazine.

Signs of the Apocalypse jokes aside, we wish them well. And look forward to the inevitable messy divorce proceedings.

James Franco Calls Theater Critic “A Little Bitch”

“Though Mr. Franco musters a single, perfect tear for the play’s tragic climax, I only came close to shedding one. That was in the first act, when a dog (a real one) is led offstage to be shot because it stinks.” [Vulture]

Consider yourself warned, critics (myself included): James Franco does not like it when you criticize him.

Case in point: the of-late-scandalized star took to Instagram to call theater critic Ben Brantley a “little bitch” after his less than flattering review of John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men which stars Franco and Chris O’Dowd.

What pissed off Franco? Well, critiques from Brantley like this: “Though he sports a Yosemite Sam accent, Mr. Franco is often understated to the point of near invisibility.”

Colbert To Replace Letterman On “Late Show”

“The decision comes about a week after Letterman announced during a taping of his program that he would retire from the program – and the longest tenure as a latenight host on broadcast TV – sometime in 2015.”[Variety]

Political punditry just won’t be the same.

Comedian and faux ultra right winger Stephen Colbert has been named the new host of CBS’s Late Show with the announcement last week that David Letterman plans to step down in 2015.

Colbert’s contract with current boss Comedy Central is set to expire in 2014, which may be why he jumped ship. What remains to be seen, however, is if Colbert can actually be himself and not the nutty right wing pundit he plays as host of The Colbert Report … and if audiences will like him in the role.

The late night terrain sure is a’changin’.

Chris Martin Denies Affair With ‘SNL’ Staffer

“She’s never been jealous or territorial. Her philosophy is, ‘We’re both adults. We make our own choices.'”[HuffPo]

Tsk, tsk. Chris Martin just can’t catch a break these days.

Just days after a “conscious uncoupling” (blech) from his spouse of the last decade, Gwyneth Paltrow, the lead singer of Coldplay has come out vociferously against rumors that he has been carrying on with a secret woman identified only as a staffer from Saturday Night Live.

According to a source, “He had an affair with a woman who was backstage and was part of an entourage. Everyone was talking about it because he was openly flirting with her at one of the show after parties.”
Martin’s rep responded, “This is completely untrue, we totally deny it.”

And now you know.

Stephen Colbert Is CBS’s Top Pick to Replace Letterman

“Less than 24 hours have passed since Letterman announced his retirement and the Internet has already provided CBS with dozens of replacements — from Jon Stewart to Maya Rudolph.” [HuffPo]

Some people may not be so happy with Stephen Colbert after last week’s Racist Tweet brouhaha, but someone wants him really, really bad: CBS.

According to reports, Comedy Central’s thruthiest comedian is the top choice by the brass at CBS to replace outgoing talk show host David Letterman: “Colbert has not had any formal conversations about taking the position, but he is the network’s first pick.”

If he did take the gig, however, Colbert wouldn’t get to play the fake pundit that made him famous: “Mashable notes that if Colbert were to take over Letterman’s — or any late night show on a network — that he would change his schtick. He would have to drop the conservative persona that recently landed him in hot water.”

“The first footage from the action car franchise debuted at CinemaCon in Las Vegas last week. It featured Walker and the rest of the actors sitting in cars that are dropped out of an airplane and parachute their way down to the ground.”[THR]

Four months after the death of one of its leading men, Paul Walker, the seventh Fast & Furious film is back in production.

The film, which will apparently “retire” Walker’s character rather than kill him off, stars Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson and Chris “Ludacris” Bridge, all of whom are now shooting the remaining half of the film in Abu Dhabi.

Fast & Furious 7 is set to release April 10, 2015.
