Here's what's happening out there:
This whole week, Carmen Electra has been sharing bikini photos from Tahiti (see one below), where she's been soaking up sun since Saturday. If her Instagram account is any indication, she's also been soaking up pina coladas two at a time, but that picture isn't nearly as interesting. Enjoy your bikini photo.
Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt have been described as "the most notorious couple in the history of reality television," but how do they feel about the distinction? Surprisingly, they're not that miffed. To hear what they have to say (along with Spencer's new pick for "most notorious couple"), check out our interview in the video above.
After news of Chris Brown's 9-month-old daughter became public on Wednesday, Brown's sometimes girlfriend Karrueche Tran went public with an announcement of her own: that she was leaving him. Tran took to Twitter to declare that wants none of his "baby drama," which is perhaps the most public way to dump someone aside from announcing it during a Super Bowl half-time show.
In related news, Chris Brown's 9-month-old daughter is reportedly named Royalty. We're not sure whether it was Brown or mom Nia Rodriguez who chose the name, but in either case, it serves as a handy reminder of where Chris' child support payments will soon be coming from.
The third trailer for Marvel's "The Avengers: Age of Ultron" was released online Wednesday (below), and it spends two minutes trying to convince us that six superheroes (three of which are superhuman) might somehow get one-upped by a robot James Spader. (We're thinking the superheroes are going to win out in the end.)
The nominees for this year's MTV Movie Awards were announced on Wednesday, and as usual, they honor the film achievements that the Oscars still fails to recognize. So perhaps one day we'll see Zac Efron abs earn an Oscar for Best Shirtless Performance; as for now, however, we can at least award them a popcorn-shaped trophy.
Clothing retailer Express has debuted a bunch of new summer swimwear, including several "Kate [Upton]-approved" pieces (see one below). We're guessing that means she had a hand in picking the designs, but it's also possible that each Kate-approved piece was merely designed to handle the most ample of bosoms.
As reported by Reuters, Leonardo DiCaprio has teamed with Netflix to produce a bunch of environmental documentaries that, while likely to be well-made and critically lauded, we will promptly pass over in favor of more "Orange is the New Black."
Speaking of Leo, his ex-girlfriend Bar Refaeli shared a couple of bikini pics on Instagram the other day (see one below), remarking in the caption that she'd been working for 15 hours straight before the photos were taken. We, on the other hand, would prefer to nap in a bed, where we might not drown, but whatever. To each his own.
Bruce Willis is scheduled to make his Broadway debut in the 2016 stage adaptation of Stephen King's "Misery," which must have been a tough decision for Bruce, especially because if it goes bad, there are so many ways to work the word "misery" into the title of a scathing review.
Character actor Daniel von Bargen, known for memorable roles on "Malcolm in the Middle" and "Seinfeld," has died at the age of 64. The cause of death hasn't been revealed, but we can only hope he died doing what he loved: spinning around in his office chair:
Giorgio Armani explained to AP that Madonna's cape — the one that yanked her down a set of stairs at the BRIT Awards — was supposed to be fastened with a hook before Madonna insisted on the tie that dragged her down. "Madonna, as we all know, is very difficult," he told the AP, apparently not averse to kicking a woman when she's down, on the ground, and probably in pain.
And finally, Ben & Jerry's co-founder Ben Cohen told Huffington Post that the idea of marijuana-laced ice cream "makes sense" to him, because of course it does. With flavors like Cherry Garcia and Willie Nelson's Country Peach Cobbler, let's not pretend "weed-flavored ice cream" wasn't his end-game.
