Katharine McPhee's Impending Divorce and Bobby Flay's Tips for Expert Grilling

Avoid these backyard blunders.

 

Here's the deal, everybody:

Taylor Swift got real with People magazine and shared why she always wears red lipstick (her face looks better that way) and why she's obsessed with oxfords.

Maxim magazine crowned Victoria's Secret model Candice Swanepoel the hottest woman of 2014 on its annual Hot 100 list . If she should fail to fulfill her duties as hottest, runner-up Scarlett Johansson will presumably assume the role.

And now the moment you’ve been waiting for. The 2014 #MaximHot100 number one is…@AngelCandicehttp://t.co/tUYLcSg8uW pic.twitter.com/2ayEklembG

Having a cookout this Memorial Day weekend? Before you fire up that grill, make sure to familiarize yourself with the most common grilling mistakes, courtesy of Bobby Flay in the video above.

"American Idol" alum Katharine McPhee is finally filing for divorce from husband Nick Cokas, only a scant seven months after she decided she liked kissing other dudes behind his back.

Interestingly enough, "Twilight" actress Nikki Reed is also filing for divorce, also from an "American Idol" contestant. Stop marrying "American Idol" contestants, everybody.

Charlie Sheen is angrily ranting about Rihanna on Twitter now, reportedly because RiRi politely declined his request to make awkward small talk with his fiance Brett. But really, would it have killed Rihanna to smile, shake the woman's hand and exchange simple pleasantries? (Rihanna: "So, I hear your husband is crazy?" "Brett: "Yes! That's true!" See? Done!)

Last weekend at a charity gala in New Orleans, Brad Pitt jumped on stage to play the tambourine for Bruno Mars and his band. Try and pick him out in the video below; he's the one who's barely contributing.

Will Smith is rumored to be developing a New Year's Eve television special, hopefully to coincide with a Roland Emmerich film called "New Year's Day" where he fights aliens on behalf of the president.

"Extra" host Maria Menounos will be taking her talents and her fantastically distinct laugh to the E! Network.

Good try, Beyonce. Your new super-long braids are nice and all, but they won't distract us from the fact that your sister beat up your husband. (Your sister beat up your husband!)

Will Ferrell and doppelganger Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers had a drum-off on "The Tonight Show," where Ferrell eventually resorted to just playing the cowbell like we were all secretly hoping:

Jessica Alba made it a point to tell People magazine that she "never slept [her] way through Hollywood." Funny she would mention that, seeing as it never really crossed our minds, but now we're wondering … did Jessica Alba sleep her way through Hollywood?

"High School Musical" and "Spring Breakers" actress Vanessa Hudgens flaunted her abs and bejeweled bellybutton on Instagram the other day:

Kim Kardashian enjoyed a girls' night out in Paris ahead of her wedding in Italy, and you could tell it was a good time, because Kylie almost fell flat on her face.

A painting of Katy Perry has been added to the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C., presumably so future generations of visitors can look back and ask, "Who the heck is this lady with all the candy strewn across her cleavage?"

Lifetime is currently working on a Whitney Houston biopic. The actress taking Whitney's role has yet to be named, but hopefully she'll capture the late singer's essence a little better than FOX's MADtv did back in the early '00s.

And lastly, Chips Ahoy is finally catering to the specific demographic of folks who love both cookies and cake frosting, but are too lazy to dip one into the other. Behold: chocolate chip cookies stuffed with cake frosting.
