Before her over-the-top fairytale romance with the loopy, larger-than-life movie star/madman, Holmes lived a relatively normal existence as a TV actress with a promising career in movies. After "Dawson's Creek" ended in 2003, she relocated from North Carolina (where the show was produced) to New York (where she rode the subway as if she were a struggling actor en route to an audition.) Holmes balanced her good-girl "Creek" role as Joey Potter with darker big-screen parts in "Pieces of April," "Go" and "Wonder Boys." Then came a slew of mainstream roles in "First Daughter," "Batman Begins" and "Thank You For Smoking."
Then she met Tom Cruise.Read More »from Conspiracy Theory: Is Katie Holmes Becoming Normal Again?
If the 72 day wedding wasn't already a tip-off, the Kardashians reserve the right to change their minds at a moment's notice.
Only this time, they've changed their minds and decided their brain-dead "Saturday Night Live" doppelgangers are suddenly funny.
After "SNL" jumped on the Kim-got-married-for-publicity bandwagon with a sketch called "Kim's Fairytale Divorce," younger sister Khloe Tweeted, "Ha! I just saw the SNL skit they did and I could not stop laughing… LOL." She was apparently so smitten that she Tweeted it twice: "u have 2learn2 laugh at urself life is 2short ... Its SNL... They r supposed 2make fun Its not who we are&I know that."Read More »from The Kardashians Suddenly Like ‘SNL’ Spoofs

I've known Piggy for a number of years -- a number of decades, really, though she might not appreciate that candor. But yes, there is a spark for certain, and it is still sparking. Passion, I would say. It's passion to either extreme.

Kevin Winter/Getty ImagesThe best way to silence pervasive baby daddy rumors? Take a DNA test, and announce the results publicly. That's how Justin Bieber intends to approach the first major scandal to mar his squeaky-clean teen dream reputation: in two weeks, the pop idol will voluntarily undergo a paternity test to prove he is not the father of Mariah Yeater's three-month old son.
If the results redeem The Biebs, TMZ reports the 17-year-old singer might sue Yeater for slandering his good name in her lawsuit and "world exclusive" interview in Star magazine.Read More »from Justin Bieber Will Take DNA Test To Prove He Did Not Get Mariah Yeater Pregnant

Mark Metcalfe/Getty ImagesKim Kardashian is back in Los Angeles -- and looking uncharacteristically crabby -- after meeting with Kris Humphries at his Minnesota home this weekend. The reality TV princess touched down at LAX late Sunday dressed like she was going to a funeral, sporting all black, no makeup and a dreary expression. (Check out the photos on Radar Online.)
Kardashian flew up North on Saturday for a 4-hour, save-the-marriage sitdown with Humphries and the pastor who married them. Sources tell TMZ a reconciliation is "up in the air," which fits quite nicely into the dubious dramatic narrative of this dubious marriage on this dubious reality TV show. Is Kim a genius? Possibly.Read More »from Kim Kardashian Returns To L.A. After Weekend In Minnesota With Kris Humphries

Soon the "Twilight" trio -- Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner -- will graduate from the blockbuster franchise that made them international superstars. When the first movie premiered in 2008, the gang was woefully unprepared for the fame game: Pattinson came off like a neurotic mess with unwashed Edward Scissorhands hair; Stewart could not seemingly get through a talk-show interview without fidgeting and pulling sulky Ally Sheedy-in-"Breakfast Club" faces; and Lautner, aka He of The Blindingly White Teeth, was more or less overshadowed by Pattinson-mania.
Three years later, the three co-stars -- seen here getting stars on Hollywood's Walk of Fame -- have transformed into more grown-up, healthier-looking versions of themselves.
