Here's what's happening:
• Josie Canseco, the 18-year-old daughter of former MLB athlete Jose Canseco, has been posting lingerie and bikini pics on Instagram (see one above), most likely in an attempt to bolster support for her casting in the 2016 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. So here's hoping she achieves as famous a career as her father, minus any fights with Danny Bonnaduce or shooting her own fingers off.
• Oscar-winning actress Jennfier Lawrence told the New York Times that she and comedian Amy Schumer are working on a comedic screenplay. The two are also planning to star in it, so we can only hope they're writing several scenes that take advantage of Lawrence's innate talent for falling down at inopportune moments.
• For her final "1989" tour stop at L.A.'s Staples Center, Taylor Swift performed "Good For You" with Selena Gomez, "Mirrors" with Justin Timberlake, and "Smelly Cat" with Lisa Kudrow, who appeared in character as Pheobe Buffay from "Friends" (below). And if anybody's curious, Swift actually treated her paying audience to a couple of her own songs, as well.
• A source revealed to Us Weekly that Paula Deen will be appearing on ABC's next season of "Dancing With the Stars," where she'll be competing for the Mirror Ball Trophy alongside fellow celebrities including Bindi Irwin and Nick Carter. But if Deen wins, we imagine she's the only one with plans to batter and deep-fry it for company.
• According to her Instagram, Heidi Klum and her fellow "Project Runway" judge Zac Posen stepped on rusty nails while filming the Lifetime reality competition (below). So right about now, we're betting they both really regret assigning that "make a dress out of rusty nails" challenge to this season's contestants.

• After determining her to be the world's highest-paid female athlete for the past 11 years, Forbes has now named Maria Sharapova the world's "most marketable female athlete," as large portion of her earnings comes from endorsement deals. All this, despite you not buying a box of Wheaties in decades.
• In honor of Peace Day on September 21, Burger King has reached out to McDonald's with a proposal for a Whopper/Big Mac hybrid called the McWhopper, If McDonald's accepts, the two companies will open a pop-up shop in Atlanta to serve the offering, but if they don't, there's nothing stopping you from smashing both franchise's burgers into one one sweaty lump of food yourself.
• And finally, it was announced earlier this week that actors Bryan Cranston and James Franco will be starring in a new comedy called "Why Him?" about a man who disapproves of his daughter's college boyfriend. We imagine audiences will enjoy it as much as they did in 1993, when it was called "Son in Law" and starred Pauly Shore.
