With 87 years to go, it's kind of early to call this, but "GQ" magazine has chosen the 100 Hottest Women of the 21st Century.  And they gave BEYONCÉ the ultimate title of "Miss Millennium

 "Town & Country" magazine has put out a list of the World's Most Eligible Bachelors.  Most of it is comprised of brats you've never heard of, whose parents are either royalty or just rich.  The familiar names include Prince Harry, George Clooney, Tim Tebow and Jack Nicholson.

TATYANA ALI . . . who played little Ashley on "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" . . . has revealed that one of her guilty pleasures is . . . ONE NIGHT STANDS.  (!!!)  She also says that contrary to rumors, she does NOT only date white guys.

 

 

 

This is one of those common Kardashian moments that almost gets you aroused, until you think about it more deeply and then become nauseous.  Sort of like when KOURTNEY waxed KHLOE'S nether regions.-Kourtney and KIM were on the "Today" show yesterday, and they talked about how cool it is that Kim is pregnant, because they can breastfeed each other's kids. Kim said, quote, "You know what [Kourtney] said to me on the way over here?  She said that in the old days . . . and maybe we should try this . . . one sister should babysit all the kids so I can go out, or vice versa, and then whichever sister's babysitting should just breastfeed all the kids that are there."

Britain's "Sun" tabloid clams ROBERT PATTINSON and KRISTEN STEWART are OVER.  Supposedly, he broke it off this past weekend.  A "source" says, quote, "She was supposed to be Rob's date for the Golden Globes, but he told her he wants to cool it off . . . Kristen's upset but understands."

 OPRAH says that during her interview with LANCE ARMSTRONG he, quote, "did not come clean in the manner that I expected."  But she said he DID admit to using performance-enhancing drugs, and she was satisfied with his answers.  Also, the interview will now air in two parts:  Tomorrow night and Friday night. 9pm on OWN.

LANCE ARMSTRONG may be trying to make nice with the federal government.  CBS News is reporting that Lance offered to be a "cooperating witness" in a federal doping investigation.  In other words, he's willing to RAT on others who were involved.He also offered $5 million to compensate for alleged fraud.  The Justice Department reportedly turned him down on both counts.-Meanwhile, the World Anti-Doping Agency says there's basically only one thing that'll convince them to even consider lifting the ban . . . quote, "a full confession under oath."

LANCE ARMSTRONG has at least one vocal supporter left:  ESPN's STUART SCOTT.  Scott recently announced a recurrence of the cancer that he was first diagnosed with in 2007.  (--He won't say what kind.)And he says, quote, "I don't care about a bike race.  I'm fighting cancer and trying to stay alive for my daughters . . . (Armstrong's) efforts that affected millions of people with cancer is his legacy.  And you're not going to argue me off that."

Honey Boo Boo's beloved "Uncle Poodle" has revealed he's HIV positive. Uncle Poodle -- whose real name is Lee Thompson  tells Atlanta's Fenuxe magazine he was diagnosed with HIV last year, and now hopes to lend his newfound star power to promoting safe sex in schools. "I was adamant about getting my HIV status checked on a regular basis," Thompson told Fenuxe writer Dino Thompson-Sarmiento. After learning he'd tested positive in May 2012, he said, "I knew it had been my boyfriend who infected me. I later learned he had been HIV positive and was not taking medication and had not bothered to tell me about it. I was advised that I should press charges and, hesitantly, I did. It was the right thing to do."Thompson, who reportedly tied the knot with his husband Josh last August, calls people who are having unsafe sex "damn fools," and noted, "They are playing Russian roulette; they are playing with their lives and that of their sexual partners."He added, "I know what it is like to be bullied. I know what it is like to live with HIV. I can help and I want to."

 

-In other "Honey Boo Boo" news:  MAMA JUNE has reportedly banned "CRAZY TONY" from appearing on the show . . . because he's just TOO CRAZY.-In November, Tony was arrested for being involved in a prank where a man was scaring people on the side of a freeway in a giant gorilla suit.-Mama June says, quote, "We love him as a friend . . . but that was a crazy story.  Not trying to be mean, but we want to keep it family oriented."

Adele publicly dedicated her Golden Globe for Best Original Song to her 3-month-old son on Sunday night, but you're not going to hear much more about him. The singer is keeping details about her baby -- including his name -- very private.“I am not sharing his name at the moment. It is very personal to me... I am enjoying him on my own,” the superstar told a reporter backstage at the awards, according to People. Though celebrity baby names are highly scrutinized, talked and tweeted about, Parents magazine says keeping monikers a secret is a trend in Hollywood. Actress Uma Thurman waited three months before revealing her daughter's name. (Alternatively, it took her three months to figure out how to pronounce it: Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson.) Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. welcomed a son in September 2012, but didn't announce his name, Rocky James, until mid-November.

In the new issue of "Esquire", MEGAN FOX says she speaks in tongues.  It happened to her for the first time at church when she was 8.  She also believes in stuff like leprechauns and the Loch Ness Monster.  Oh, and she posed for some sexy pictures in the magazine, too.  Naturally.

AL ROKER had to know when he admitted that he pooped his pants that he was NEVER going to live that down.-For instance, yesterday on the "Today" show, some guy in the background held up a sign that said, "#shart".  And when they tried to change the camera angle to get him off the screen, he moved back into the picture.

The "New York Post" reports that TONY DANZA filled his throw-up bag in first class on a flight from New York to L.A.  And he told the other passengers he was fighting the flu.But KATE UPTON happened to be sitting nearby, and she told a different story.  Kate was flying with a manager from her modeling agency named Lisa Benson.And after the incident she Tweeted, quote, "I just found out [Lisa] has a phobia of throw up.  I don't want to laugh but it is kind of funny the guy next to her is hungover."(--Apparently, Kate didn't know who Tony was.  But that's understandable.  As the website Gawker.com points out, she was born two months after "Who's the Boss?" went off the air.)

Ryan Gosling loves to knit. YES Knit!! He says, "I did this scene in 'Lars and the Real Girl' where I was in a room full of old ladies who were knitting, and it was an all-day scene, so they showed me how.  It was one of the most relaxing days of my life. If I had to design my perfect day, that would be it.  And you get something out of it at the end.  You get a nice present.  For someone who wants an oddly shaped, off-putting scarf."

Elton John and David Furnish confirmed that they do have a second kid.  Elijah Joseph Daniel Furnish-John was born Friday, via surrogate.  It's unclear if she's the same surrogate who gave birth to their first son, Zachary, who's now two years old.

 

JESSICA SIMPSON will star in an upcoming NBC sitcom based on her life.  She's playing a fictionalized version of herself . . . but there aren't many details beyond that.  NBC is pumped about it . . . in fact, one exec even referred to Jessica as, quote, "truly a modern-day LUCILLE BALL, with incredible comedic chops." 

Oxygen has nixed rapper SHAWTY LO'S upcoming reality show "All My Babies' Mamas", after everyone started freaking out about it.  The show was about Shawty's "unique family," which includes 11 children he fathered with 10 different women.The Parents Television Council called the premise, quote, "crass, irresponsible and exploitative" . . . and a Change.org petition asking that the production on the show be shut down gathered over 37,000 signatures.  The NAACP also spoke out against it.--The show was supposed to begin with a special that would premiere this spring . . . but that isn't happening anymore.  Osygen says they've "decided not to move forward with [it]."  Shawty hasn't commented.

Saturday's NFC divisional matchup between the Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers was the most-watched program on TV last week, bringing in almost 31 million viewers.  (--The Niners won 45-31 and play the Falcons this Sunday.)Number two in the ratings was Alabama DESTROYING Notre Dame in last Monday's BCS Championship game on ESPN, which pulled in over 26 million.  (--The final score of that one was 42-14.)  Here are the Top 10 shows overall last week . .

  #1.)  The Packers-Niners game, Fox, 30.9 million viewers

#2.)  The BCS National Championship Game, ESPN, 26.4 million viewers

 #3.)  "NCIS", CBS, 21.1 million viewers

Remember Kris Kross?  Well, they're reuniting for a concert next month to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Jermaine Dupri’s record label.  There's no indication that they plan on doing anything beyond that.

 

 

 

 

 

Actor Victor Garber, who played Jack Bristow on Alias and the shipbuilder Thomas Andrews in Titanic, confirmed this week what he thought people already knew. Yes, he is gay. "I don't really talk about it, but everybody knows," Garber, 63, told E!. The actor, who has been nominated for six Emmy Awards, including three for Alias, has hardly kept it a secret.  In an interview last year with a magazine in his native Canada, Garber said: "My companion Rainer Andreesen and I have been together almost 13 years in Greenwich Village. We both love New York."Andreesen, an artist and model, accompanied Garber to this year's Golden Globe Awards. Garber also appears in Ben Affleck's Argo, and spoke to Hernandez about the joy of his connection to Affleck and his wife Jennifer Garner, who costarred on Alias.

Charlie told David Letterman (via UsWeekly) that he knows the world is going to be an even weirder place when he becomes a granddaddy "Me as a grandfather, Dave...I don't know. It's like the world's going to crack in half. It's fabulous. It's just not a title I'm ready to adopt."

Danica Patrick and Paul Hospenthal have come to the end of their road together. Less than two months after announcing that she and her husband had separated, the NASCAR driver, 30, officially filed for divorce, according to documents obtained by Sporting News. "My marriage is irretrievably broken and there is no reasonable prospect of reconciliation," the IndyCar racer stated in her filing on Jan. 3. She also noted in the documents that the couple have a prenup and that neither side would require alimony.

Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson have tried to get married. Twice, in fact! But, you know..."We've had two different wedding dates, but he keeps knocking me up," the pregnant future sitcom star, her cleavage barely tamed by her animal-print dress, joked Tuesday on The Tonight Show about her fiancé of two years."We're doing it very backwards, I know...I'll just keep my legs crossed, I guess, this time," Simpson vowed with regard to the next time they set a date.Jessica Simpson didn't hire a Weight Watcher's chef—there's no such thing!Asked if she planned to get pregnant so soon after welcoming daughter Maxwell, who's now 8 months old, Simpson decidedly said, "Nope!""Apparently it was a part of God's plan for my life," she said, laughing. "I was extremely shocked...because I was going through a lot of hormonal changes, trying to get back to the old, vibrant Jessica. You know, it was kind of like a one-night stand. And it happened, all over again!"This time around, however, she doesn't plan on eating "everything in sight."

 

 

Jennifer Lopez was so close to two of her ex-boyfriends at the Golden Globes, she could've passed them the salt—but did she feel awkward? Nah."We run in the same circles," she reminded Ellen DeGeneres, in an interview airing tomorrow on Ellen, of how not unusual it is for her to cross paths with Sean "Diddy" Combs and, to a lesser extent, Ben Affleck.But count Lopez among the many who gave Affleck a standing ovation when he won Best Director for Argo.J.Lo made our list of the top 10 riskiest looks at the Golden Globes"It was a great movie," Lopez said. "And, we [her and Affleck] got you know, a lot of...They were really hard on us in the press when we dated back in the day, on movies and things like that."So, it was a nice moment.
