Donnie Wahlberg and Dr. Jenny McCarthy were on the Howard Stern show yesterday, and the headline making the rounds is about Jenny and The View maybe or maybe not unofficially asking her back. Who cares. There’s another clip floating around that is far more interesting, concerning Donnie Wahlberg and his brother Mark. Full Story

Ambra Battilan is a model who has gone to police in New York alleging that Harvey Weinstein groped her. They met at an event on Thursday. She claims that Weinstein told her to come see him on Friday at 6pm at his office for an “audition”. During the “audition”, she alleges that Weinstein asked her if her breasts were real, then tried to touch them, then allegedly tried to shove his hand up her skirt. Full Story

As Maria noted in her Tidal post, Taylor Swift was probably THE biggest name not present and accounted for at the Tidal kickoff yesterday. I say THE biggest name because, love her or hate her, you cannot deny Taylor’s chart influence, not only with the latest album 1989 but her previous ones too. Full Story

Maria was just wondering in the previous post about the launch of Tidal about the absence of some major recording artists from the announcement, including Katy Perry. The Tidal presser happened in New York yesterday, late afternoon. Katy Perry? She was in New York too. Last night she stepped out for a Chanel party with Karl Lagerfeld. Full Story

Tom Hardy makes a mug

If you already have a Tom Hardy problem, this isn’t going to help. This will make it much, much worse. Here he is on the cover of UK Esquire. Some dudes, when they do the squinty eye thing, it doesn’t work, not at all. You don’t believe it. Like if there was actually cigarette smoke drifting across their faces, they wouldn’t hot-squint, their eyes would just water and they’d swat it away. Full Story

In February Jon Stewart announced he will be retiring from The Daily Show later this year, and now it’s become official that his replacement will be South African comedian Trevor Noah. There’s still no date for Stewart’s retirement beyond “later this year”, but when he does go, Noah will take over his chair. Full Story

This didn’t end up being a surprise since Michelle tweeted about it a couple of days before the event. But still. Still. When she, Kelly Rowland, and the Beyonce reunite? It’s still a big deal. The reunion happened Saturday night at the Stellar Gospel Music Awards in Las Vegas where Michelle was nominated in several categories. Full Story

The first trailer for Jake Gyllenhaal’s boxing movie Southpaw—the one he got insanely ripped for—just premiered on Eminem’s Youtube channel, of all the weird places. Once upon a time, Eminem was attached to the project, but his involvement now is limited to a song on the soundtrack and, apparently, debuting the trailer. Full Story

While Taylor Swift continued her friend collection enemy isolation in Nashville last night, Katy Perry was in LA at the premiere of her concert film The Prismatic World Tour. Does it make you side with her more? The fact that Taylor seems to be systematically picking everyone off around her, with the exception of Rihanna who will not be bought or traded, motherf-cker, don’t you even dare? Not me. Full Story

This is really cute. And also really interesting. Ben Affleck was in DC today, along with Bill Gates, to address the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on State and Foreign Operations. There was a Batman mention, obviously. I think he’s going to ride closer to the RDJ approach to being a superhero as opposed to the Christian Bale one: Mention it whenever you can. Full Story

I love the Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation trailer that Sarah posted yesterday – click here for a refresher. As she wrote, it’s pure ridiculous action movie fun. It knows exactly what it is. It doesn’t aim to be anything more. And Tom Cruise’s level of frustration when he delivers the final line – “the other door!” – is perfect. Full Story

If I’m Justin Bieber, 21 years old, trying to “man up” at every opportunity, I’m loving the fact that Leonardo DiCaprio, founding member of the Pussy Posse, wants to hang out with me. On Saturday night, the two were at a club together in West Hollywood. The pictures are sh-t quality so I didn’t buy them but if you want to see, click here Full Story

Miley Cyrus was in Vegas last night. Patrick Schwarzenegger was not with her, even though he’s back from Spring Break in Mexico. According to E!, one source says Miley isn’t taking his calls and that Patrick is “extremely frustrated” because he’s made it a point to be a really great boyfriend and can’t believe that people think he would step out on her. Full Story

We’ve known that it’s James for a while now. But we’ve never heard it from Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds…until now. Reynolds is doing press for The Woman In Gold, opening April 1. Jesus, it is April already??? Anyway, during an interview with The Today Show, Ryan confirmed that his daughter’s name is indeed JAMES. Full Story
