Jennie Garth Weight Loss: How Does She Done

How does she done it?

That's the question many have for Jennie Garth, considering she's a working mother of three who recently shed 30 pounds and is determined to keep it off.

The actress admitted to People this week that "maintenance" is a "daily" challenge, but it's all about keeping the proper mindset.

"You have to remind yourself what your priorities are," she said. "And remind yourself about staying healthy and living a healthy life."

It also helps that Garth has turned to gluten-free recipes, while also fitting in exercise as often as possible.

In whatever way she can.

"Every day, I try to schedule something in, whether it's hiking with my dog or jogging or going to the gym," said Garth, who's been linked romantically these days to Big Gigantic drummer Jeremy Salken. "Those are the things I'm focused on right now."

And it's clearly paying off. We always knew Dylan McKay made the right choice.

Kelly Osbourne recovering well after fainting on E set
Kelly Osbourne was hospitalized Thursday after fainting on the set of the E! network's "Fashion Police."

A spokeswoman for Osbourne told the cable network that the 28-year-old TV personality was awake, alert and in stable condition. She will be staying at the hospital overnight for observation as a precautionary measure. No additional details were provided.

Osbourne is the daughter of rocker Ozzy Osbourne and "The Talk" co-host Sharon Osbourne. She was profiled with her family on the MTV reality series "The Osbournes" and has appeared as a contestant on "Dancing with the Stars." She's currently a panelist on "Fashion Police" with Joan Rivers, Giuliana Rancic and George Kotsiopoulos.

"She's fine," Rivers said in a video posted Thursday afternoon on the celebrity news site "We just saw her."

Spokeswomen for Sharon Osbourne and Melissa Rivers, Joan's daughter and executive producer of "Fashion Police," declined to comment.

Kelly Osbourne's brother, Jack, revealed he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis last year.

Irish Notre Dame QB Gunner Kiel To Transfer

Irish Notre Dame QB Gunner Kiel To Transfer
Notre Dame quarterback Gunner Kiel intends to transfer, a source confirmed to

The website Irish Sports Daily earlier reported that Kiel would transfer.

Notre Dame had no comment. A message left for Kiel's father, Kip, was not returned.

A four-star quarterback from the Class of 2012, Kiel drew notoriety for his recruitment after defecting from both Indiana and LSU.

The Columbus (Ind.) High School product redshirted this past fall during the Fighting Irish's run to the Discover BCS National Championship. He is the nephew of former Notre Dame quarterback Blair Kiel, who died last Easter at the age of 50.

Redshirt freshman Everett Golson won the starting job last fall, with junior Tommy Rees seeing extensive playing time, too.

During his last meeting with reporters on Jan. 5, Kiel said the thought of transferring had not crossed his mind.

"It honestly hasn't," he said during media day at Sun Life Stadium. "I've been more focused on the season and been more focused on school and other things that are more important to me."

Redshirt sophomore Andrew Hendrix was ahead of Kiel on the depth chart last year as well, and Notre Dame welcomed in another quarterback this semester in early enrollee Malik Zaire.

"Anything could happen," Kiel said Jan. 5. "[Golson] could go to the NFL -- you never know. He could also get hurt, other people could get hurt -- there's so many doors that could be opened that I just have to be patient, just wait my turn, wait to get better."

"I'm gonna try, but he's a great quarterback," he added when asked about unseating Golson this spring. "He's going to lead this team and he's going to keep getting better, so I just need to keep getting better and learn from him, and also learn from coach [Brian] Kelly and just try to keep getting better each year."

After spurning LSU at the 11th hour last January to enroll early at Notre Dame, Kiel drew sharp criticism from LSU coach Les Miles, who questioned the heart of Kiel at the Tiger Gridiron Club's annual national signing day "Bayou Bash" in Baton Rouge, La.

"There was a gentleman from Indiana that thought about coming to the Bayou state," Miles said. "He did not necessarily have the chest and the ability to lead a program, so you know."

Kiel took the high road whenever asked about Miles.

"Once he said it, I don't blame him at all -- I was dumb during the recruiting process," Kiel said Jan. 5. "I couldn't really make up my mind, but I was also doing what was best for me at that time, and that was picking a college. That much pressure and being so highly ranked, I couldn't make up my mind.

"It was hard, but I'm very happy with the decision I made, and I've always respected Coach Miles. I'm not going to throw him under the bus, because I think he's a great coach. Everything he stands for, I think, is great. He's a winning coach. There's nothing more to say. I can't take back what I did, so I respect Coach Miles and everything he stands for."

Bin Laden's son-in-law captured, charged in US with conspiring to kill Americans

Bin Laden's son-in-law captured, charged in US with conspiring to kill Americans
A top Al Qaeda spokesman who is the son-in-law of Usama bin Laden has been captured overseas and charged in the United States with conspiracy to kill Americans, according to an indictment unsealed Thursday, sparking Republican criticism that such terrorists don't belong in the civilian judicial system.

The capture of Sulaiman Abu Ghaith drew praise from Republican Rep. Peter King of New York, the former chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, who called it a "very significant victory" in U.S. efforts against Al Qaeda.

But two fellow Republicans, Sens. Lindsey Graham and Kelly Ayotte, said Thursday the Obama administration's decision to bring Abu Ghaith to court in New York is wrong, "sneaky" and against the will of Congress.

Graham says Abu Ghaith is clearly an enemy combatant and should have been sent straight to the Guantanamo Bay detainee facility in Cuba for extended questioning. Instead, he is expected to appear Friday morning in a federal court in New York City to face charges.

"The Obama administration’s lack of a war-time detention policy for foreign members of al Qaeda, as well as its refusal to detain and interrogate these individuals at Guantanamo, makes our nation less safe," Graham and Ayotte said in a joint written statement. “We are at war with Al Qaeda and its affiliated groups, and America’s detention policy must reflect that reality."

Even so, the Justice Department touted the capture of Abu Ghaith as significant.

"It has been 13 years since Abu Ghaith allegedly worked alongside Usama Bin Laden in his campaign of terror, and 13 years since he allegedly took to the public airwaves, exhorting others to embrace Al Qaeda's cause and warning of more terrorist attacks like the mass murder of 9/11," U.S. Attorney Bharara said in a news release announcing Abu Ghaith's arrest. "The memory of those attacks is indelibly etched on the American psyche, and today's action is the latest example of our commitment to capturing and punishing enemies of the United States, no matter how long it takes."

Attorney General Eric Holder added, "No amount of distance or time will weaken our resolve to bring America's enemies to justice."

Abu Ghaith became an international name in late 2001 when he appeared on pan-Arab satellite television urging Muslims everywhere to fight the United States and warning of more attacks similar to those of Sept. 11. In one video, he was sitting with bin Laden in front of a rock face in Afghanistan. A teacher and mosque preacher in Kuwait, he was stripped of his Kuwaiti citizenship after 9/11.

He is identified as a major Al Qaeda core official by the New America Foundation think tank in Washington. King said Abu Ghaith was involved in the planning in the 9/11 attacks against the World Trade Center and Pentagon.

"Definitely, one by one, we are getting the top echelons of Al Qaeda," King said. "I give the (Obama) administration credit for this: It's steady and it's unrelenting and it's very successful."

It's likely that Abu Ghaith will face a host of terrorism-related charges and possibly murder, which could carry the death penalty, said attorney Michael Rosensaft, who was a prosecutor in the U.S. Attorney's office in Manhattan until last fall and is now in private practice. He predicted the trial will last months, if not years, and that some of the evidence against Abu Ghaith will be a challenge for prosecutors to bring to court if it is classified.

Abu Ghaith's trial will make one of the few prosecutions of senior Al Qaeda leaders on U.S. soil. Charging foreign terror suspects in American federal courts was a top pledge by President Obama shortly after he took office in 2009 -- aimed, in part, to close the detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

"The propaganda statements in which Abu Ghaith and his late father-in-law, Usama bin Laden, praised the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 are alone enough to merit the most serious punishment," King said

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney declined to comment on the capture when asked during Thursday's press briefing.

The Obama administration's attempts to move many of the detainees held at Guantanamo into facilities in the United States to stand trial domesstically were halted during Obama's first term after Congress passed a measure with bipartisan majorities opposing such transfers.

Demi Moore files divorce papers, responding to Ashton Kutcher

Demi Moore files divorce papers, responding to Ashton Kutcher
Demi Moore has filed divorce papers in response to those filed by Ashton Kutcher in December.

Moore is seeking spousal support from Kutcher, reportedly the highest-paid man in television, and wants him to pay her legal fees, according to a document obtained by TMZ.

The reason for the split is the old standby, irreconcilable differences, which might also describe what arose during settlement negotiations the couple had been attempting over the past year or so, the New York Post reported. The talks bogged down after a year, a source told the paper.

The couple split up in mid-November 2011, with Kutcher finally filing for divorce the Friday before Christmas 2012. (For those keeping track of lengthy celebrity breakups, @aplusk and the former @mrskutcher have been splitting for 15 months now. Compare that to Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries' breakup, which just rolled into month 17 since they split at the end of October 2011. Important to note: Kim didn't wait more than a year to file papers, like Ashton did.)

Moore was the one to announce their split in 2011, saying, "It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I have decided to end my six-year marriage to Ashton. As a woman, a mother and a wife there are certain values and vows that I hold sacred, and it is in this spirit that I have chosen to move forward with my life. This is a trying time for me and my family, and so I would ask for the same compassion and privacy that you would give to anyone going through a similar situation."

Kutcher had reportedly cheated on Moore with a 22-year-old San Diego woman, Sara Leal, on their sixth wedding anniversary. At the time, the "St. Elmo's Fire" actress was in New York promoting a short-film anthology she'd participated in for Lifetime. It was her first time behind the camera.

Moore's intent to file was first reported by the Post on Wednesday.

"Ashton made a lot of money after marrying Demi — a lot more than she made — but despite him becoming just as famous through her, he believes he doesn’t owe her that much," a source told the Post. "She has had enough."

NORAD Evacuated After Five Suspicious Packages Found

NORAD Evacuated After Five Suspicious Packages Found
NORAD was evacuated after five suspicious packages were found on Thursday. Employees became suspicious at NORAD’s Colorado headquarters when something about the packages looked out of place.

The evacuation took place at Peterson Air Force Base, though the organization’s control room team was operating at a backup site in Cheyenne Mountain at the time.

The control team was at its backup site, because renovations are currently underway at their main building. NORAD is short for North American Aerospace Defense Command.

The group is a joint US-Canadian command whose goal is to defend the skies above both nations. They also monitor any sea approaches.

Cheyenne Mountain was originally NORAD’s primary control room. It was carved out in the 1960s and can withstand a nuclear attack. NORAD moved to Peterson Air Force Base in 2006.

Because the organization’s control team was operating at a backup site, the NORAD evacuation did not affect any critical operations. Jeff Bohn, a spokesman at the Air Force base, stated that the employees became suspicious, because the packages looked “out of place.”

Tests on the suspicious packages have ruled out biological, chemical, or radiological agents, though other tests are still under way. The packages were removed following the initial tests The entire evacuation took about four and 1/2 hours.

NORAD moved from Cheyenne Mountain after they said that the change would save money and also consolidate personnel. Despite the move, the mountain location is kept on standby for backup use. The group now shares its headquarters building with the US Northern Command.

The command is responsible for both defending US territories from attack and helping civilian authorities. Essential Northern Command and NORAD operations were not interrupted by the evacuation.

It is not yet clear what was suspicious about the packages to cause the evacuation at NORAD. A spokesman declined to give more information.

Hulk rumors: Planet Hulk rumors debunked by Joss Whedon until The Avengers 2

Hulk rumors are making a buzz across the internet tonight for comics fans, as Latest Newser reported this Thursday, March 7, that talk of an upcoming “Hulk” movie has been shut down by both Mark Ruffalo and Joss Whedon this week.

Under the news headline, “Hulk rumors shut down by Joss Whedon”, sources report that despite the rumors this week that planning of a “Planet Hulk” film was in the works, noted that this is not the case. Both director Joss Whedon and actor Mark Ruffalo have said no to the alleged talk.

Mark Ruffalo, “The Avengers” star who played the Hulk, even told fans that he won’t be playing any roles as the giant green superhero again until “The Avengers 2”.

Initially, the Hulk rumors began with a “Planet Hulk” movie being set in motion as its own film in which the Hulk would be transported to another planet and then forced to liberate it from the planet’s oppressors.

Then “World War Hulk” talk began, which this time was even linked with the plot for “The Avengers 2”. However, director Joss Whedon once again confirmed that there’s already a plot line set for “The Avengers 2”, and “World War Hulk” is not in the works whatsoever.

Mark Ruffalo did add that the Hulk rumors may eventually lead to real planning for a standalone film for the Hulk, but it’s certainly a few years off at least.

Hilary Duff, Sister Haylie Give Baby Luca Kisses While Swimming: Picture

Hilary Duff and Luca
Kisses for baby Luca! Hilary Duff and her sister, Haylie Duff, took Hilary's adorable son Luca, 11 months, for a swim on Wednesday, March 6.

The sisters, both wearing swimsuits with their hair pulled up, posed for a picture together in the water. Haylie cradled her nephew and they both showered him with kisses.

Hilary, 25, posted the cute photo on Twitter and captioned the shot, "Waterbug." Haylie, 28, also tweeted, "Swimming with my Seester and Luca. Favorite way to spend an afternoon."

Though he's probably still learning how to swim, little Luca has recently learned how to walk.

"Well, I officially have a walking baby on my hands!" Hilary announced on Twitter Feb. 28 of her son with husband Mike Comrie. "It's hilarious . . . the wobble makes it look like he's 3 drinks in!"

Joy Behar Leaving ABC's The View After 16 Years

Joy Behar attends Joy Behar's Comics with Benefits: A Special Night Of Comedy Benefiting Victims Of Hurricane Sandy on December 10, 2012 in New York City.
It's the end of an era! After more than 16 years as a co-host on The View, Joy Behar is planning to exit the long-running ABC talk show when her contract ends in August, Deadline reports.

Behar, 70, is the only remaining original cast member besides co-creator Barbara Walters. Fellow season one co-hosts Meredith Vieira and Star Jones departed the series in 2006, while Debbie Matenopoulos left in 1999. The current panel includes Whoopi Goldberg, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, and Sherri Shepherd.

"It seemed like the right time," Behar told Deadline in a phone interview on March 7. "You reach a point when you say to yourself, 'Do I want to keep doing this?' There are other things on my plate -- I've been writing a play, I've been neglecting my standup."

She added, though, that she would miss her colleagues -- and Walters, in particular. "It is a smart talk show because somebody of her stature is leading the conversation," Behar said of the series' executive producer. "Barbara was one of the main reasons I took that job."

Behar herself will be missed, too, by both fans and the network. "Joy Behar has been instrumental in the success of The View from the very beginning," ABC said in a statement to Deadline. "We wish her all the best in this next chapter and are thrilled that we have her for the remainder of the season."

Sean Lowe: I Have a Mental Breakdown, Cry on Bachelor Finale

The Season Finale of "The Bachelor" airs MONDAY, MARCH 11 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
It all comes down to a single rose! Sean Lowe will choose between proposing to Catherine Giudici and Lindsay Yenter (or possibly neither!) on the finale episode of The Bachelor on Monday, March 11, and 29-year-old entrepreneur says he's happy with his decision -- but it wasn't easy to make.

"I'm happy, man. I was skeptical going into it," he admits in a radio interview with Mario Lopez for On With Mario, airing Friday, March 7. "I thought out of meeting 25 women, there's a good chance I might not build a connection with anybody."

After confronting 18 of the women he eliminated on a heated Women Tell All special March 4, Lowe says, "I made it out on the other end alive. And not only that, you'll see on Monday, I'm left with two of the most phenomenal women in the world. And I really did develop strong feelings for both of them."

And those strong feelings led to a big meltdown, Lowe reveals.

"You're going to see me, basically, have a mental breakdown," Lowe, a devout Christian who's abstaining from sex until marriage, admits. "I get to a point where I'm like, man, both of these girls are so wonderful and I could see my life heading in either direction. And I don't know what to do, and I'm torn."

Anguishing over the decision, Lowe further confesses he sheds a few tears along the way. "I was always proud of the fact that through [Emily Maynard's season of] The Bachelorette and every episode except for the last of The Bachelor, I never cried once. I had my man-card in tact, and then the emotion just pours out of me that last day," he says. "I lose it all."

Lowe's interview with Lopez airs Friday, March 7 on 104.3 MY FM Los Angeles on On With Mario. The finale episode of The Bachelor airs Monday, March 11 on ABC.

Pretty Little Liars: Emily and Hanna Search for Toby's Body in the Morgue

Spencer Hastings (Troian Bellisario) may be convinced that her ex-boyfriend Toby Cavanaugh (Keegan Allen) is dead, but her friends aren't so convinced. In the March 12 episode of ABC Family's Pretty Little Liars, Emily Fields (Shay Mitchell) and Hanna Marin (Ashley Benson) dress up as candy stripers and sneak into the morgue to look for Toby's body.

Grossed out by the "smell of dead people," Hanna lets Emily do the dirty work and check the identification tags on the bagged corpses. "God, this is so wrong," Hanna says after picking up a mortuary tool. "You spend your whole life doing crunches, getting rid of tan lines, not eating that second pudding, and in the end you're just a stale loaf of bread lying on a rack."
As Hanna makes disgusted faces, Emily continues to look for Toby's body. "Maybe you can help me with this loaf," she suggests. "I can't find the tag." Before Emily unzips the body bag, Hanna stops her. "Em, what if it really is Toby in there?" she asks.

"It's not," Emily replies half-convincingly. "Spencer needs to know that."

Pretty Little Liars airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. EST on ABC Family.

Justin Bieber Faints Onstage, Finishes Concert After Brief Delay

Justin Bieber performs in London, England.
The show must go on. Justin Bieber had a bit of a scare when he fainted mid-concert on Thursday, March 7, but he didn't let that stop him from finishing the performance.

"Justin fainted onstage tonight during his concert in London when he fell short of breath," the 19-year-old "Boyfriend" singer's rep tells Us Weekly. "He left the stage for 20 minutes, then came back and finished the show. He is now on his way to a doctor to get checked out and see what is wrong."

It is not yet known what caused the episode, but there's no doubt it's been a stressful week for the pop superstar. On Wednesday, March 6, Bieber took to Twitter to talk about rising above the drama and focusing on his loyal fans, a.k.a. Beliebers.

"I'm focused on the good things in life. I'm blessed and not forgetting it," he wrote. Later, he added: "I will continue being me. I will continue to serve, to perform, to care, to love, to smile, to dance, to play, to sing...and you are welcome to join, because I carry no hate. We got too much love for that. I'm about the music."

Tina Fey on Her Swimsuit Pictures: My Nightmare Came True

Tina Fey arrives at the Golden Globe awards ceremony in Beverly Hills on January 13, 2013.
For people who saw the photos last week of a tankini-clad Tina Fey vacationing in Orlando, they were a welcome and rare glimpse of the busy writer-comedian in relaxation mode. For the 42-year-old mom of two, though, they were nothing short of mortifying.

"My nightmare came true and I was photographed in my bathing suit in Florida. Thankfully, I was mostly submerged," the actress told USA Today.

"It was at Disney World. I felt like it had to be another guest," she continued of the unknown shutterbug.

Tina Fey plays with her daughter during a family vacation in Orlando, Florida on February 27, 2013.   
In the pictures, a fit Fey — wearing a modest, navy blue, polkadot tankini top and matching swim shorts — plays around in a pool with adorable daughters Penelope, 19 months, and Alice, 7.

The Bossypants writer, who hosted the Golden Globes in January and recently wrapped up 30 Rock, is now busy promoting her latest movie, Admission, with Paul Rudd.

Beach bonding session! Leaving their husbands and kids behind for a weekend, Reese Witherspoon and Drew Barrymore enjoyed the ultimate girls-only getaway with pal Cameron Diaz in Tulum, Mexico, where they hit the surf for a little fun in the sun.

Witherspoon, 36 -- who welcomed her third child, son Tennessee, on Sept. 27 -- showed off her post-baby body in a modest, red-and-navy striped halter-style one-piece. Fellow new mom Barrymore, meanwhile, tested the waters in a black-and-white polka-dot bikini with retro high-waisted bottoms and a bandeau-style top.

"Reese and Drew have bonded over their babies and losing the baby weight," a source told Us Weekly of the A-list actresses, who gave birth within 24 hours of each other last fall. (Barrymore, 38, welcomed daughter Olive, her first child with husband Will Kopelman, on Sept. 26.)

The ladies were joined on the beach by Barrymore's BFF and Charlie's Angels costar Diaz, 40, who showed off her famously fit physique in a skimpy two-piece with yellow bottoms and a striped top. "She seemed excited to just be with her friends and be in a healthy, fit place where she could work out all day and relax," an eyewitness told Us of the What to Expect When You're Expecting star.

Indeed, the trip was a productive one for the trio, who did yoga, ran on the beach, swam, and noshed on healthy meals for five days. "They all hung out together and seemed to be good friends," a source said of the group. "All the girls were very social and had a great bonding experience."

Taylor Swift: I Don't Want to End Up Alone Laying in a Marble Bathtub

Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift is all of 23, but she's already worrying about ending up sad and alone: "The typical Hollywood sad cliche of the poor lonely starlet with no one because she put up all these walls and didn't trust anyone," she explains.

In the April issue of InStyle U.K., the singer-songwriter goes into confessional mode again and opens up about her fears when it comes to fame and love. "What I worry about is that I never want to end up kind of a self-centered, vain human being," she tells the magazine.

"My fears circle around me making the wrong choices and messing this up for myself. I don't want end up being awful and intolerable. Alone. Laying in a marble bathtub by myself, like sad, with a glass of wine just complaining that my life ended up alone because I pushed everyone away because I thought I was too good to hang out with anybody."

Swift claims in the current issue of Vanity Fair that she's dated only two people (presumably Conor Kennedy and Harry Styles) since 2010, and in this issue of InStyle U.K., she again tries to make the argument that she's not boy-crazy. "I'm a girls' girl," she says. "I mean, there's all kinds of complicated things with having guys as friends. If they have a girlfriend who doesn't like you or things like that. So I have, like, two or three guy friends. A select few. But I have like 20-25 really good girlfriends."

Kourtney Kardashian's New Bangs Look Much Nicer in Person, Her Hairstylist Says

Kourtney Kardashian spotted walking around during a photo shoot on March 6, 2013 in Los Angeles, California.
Yes, they're only bangs, but they're Kourtney Kardashian's bangs! When the 33-year-old Kourtney & Kim Take Miami star Instagrammed a shot of her newly cut bangs yesterday, March 6, fans and media outlets immediately took notice.

Turns out the fringe wasn't her idea. "It was my idea," hairstylist Peter Savic, who works with all three Kardashian sisters, tells Us Weekly. "I've been suggesting bangs to her for a long time and also to lighten her hair. The picture on Instagram isn't that accurate! It looks much nicer in person. Kourtney looks great with bangs."

"The bangs aren't super heavy, but they're not too light," he continues. "Kourtney is very open-minded and that's what I love about her! She's always willing to try new things. She trusts me."

So much so that she also agreed to his plea for a new hair color: "Her hair color is lighter — lighter on the ends and medium-brown roots. It's a mixed dark honey beige blonde."

Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. Take Charlotte to Disneyland

Sarah Michelle Gellar, Freddie Prinze Jr. and their daughter Charlotte, 3, meet Rapunzel at the all-new 'Fantasy Faire' attraction at Disneyland park in Anaheim, Calif., on March 6, 2013.
Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr.'s little princess met a fairy tale princess during a family trip to Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif., March 6. The spouses of 10 years took their 3-year-old daughter, Charlotte, to the see the new Fantasy Faire attraction, which officially opens March 12.

"Charlotte is a huge fan of the princesses and was very excited to visit the new Fantasy Faire at Disneyland," a source tells Us Weekly. "She could not have been more thrilled to meet Rapunzel."

Gellar, 35, "mentioned that Tangled is one of Charlotte's very favorite movies," the source adds. The couple's 6-month-old son, Rocky James, was not included in the family photo with the Disney character.

Following the cancellation of The CW's Ringer in 2012, Gellar laid low while pregnant with her little boy. She recently signed on to star in producer David E. Kelley's workplace sitcom, The Crazy Ones, opposite Robin Williams. Prinze, 36, has not appeared on television since he guest starred in a 2010 episode of Psych. He recently voiced the character of Lt. James Vega in the animated film Mass Effect: Paragon Lost.

Gellar and Prinze -- who have appeared in four films together, including I Know What You Did Last Summer and Scooby-Doo -- celebrated their tenth wedding anniversary in September 2012.

Chris Brown Explodes at Valet Attendant for Overcharging Him $5

Chris Brown arrives at the Topshop Topman LA Opening Party at Cecconi's West Hollywood on February 13, 2013 in Los Angeles, California.
Chris Brown doesn't like to feel cheated. The 23-year-old singer got into a confrontation with a valet attendant on Wednesday, March 6 over a $10 service charge -- and the exchange was caught on tape.

After leaving Stars and Strikes Celebrity Charity Bowling Tournament at Pinz Bowling Alley in L.A.'s Studio City neighborhood, Brown went to the valet stand to get his car. In TMZ's video, a valet attendant asks Brown to pay a $10 fee, and the singer refuses.

"Gimme my f--king keys," Brown demands while getting in front of the attendant's face.

"Just give me 10 dollars," the man replies.

"F--k ten dollars," Brown yells. "We gonna turn this whole spot up . . . I promise you."

A member of the "Don't Wake Me Up" singer's group tries to defuse the escalating confrontation by pleading, "Let's go, let's go. We got the money, don't worry about it." And eventually Brown does walk away while shouting, "Funky ass ten dollars."

Why the outrage of the $10 fee? A source tells TMZ that the standard fee for the valet is $5, and they were allegedly trying to cheat Brown into paying an inflated $10.

Michael Jordan Applies for Marriage License With Fiancee Yvette Prieto

Yvette Prieto and Michael Jordan arrive at the 11th Annual Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational welcome reception at the Liquid Pool Lounge at the Aria Resort & Casino at CityCenter on March 28, 2012 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Michael Jordan is headed for the altar -- again. On Thursday, March 7, the 50-year-old NBA legend hit up a courthouse in West Palm Beach, Fla., to apply for a marriage license with fiancee Yvette Prieto. County clerk spokeswoman Kathy Burstein confirmed the news to the Associated Press.

Per Florida state law, the basketball hall-of-famer and the Cuban model, 33, have 60 days to use the license once it's granted. TMZ says they plan to tie the knot on April 27.

Jordan and Prieto dated for three years before getting engaged in 2011. His rep told North Carolina TV station WCNC that he proposed over Christmas.

This will be the second marriage for the Charlotte Bobcats owner; he was previously wed to Juanita Vanoy for 17 years before their 2006 divorce. He and Vanoy -- who received about $168 million in their settlement -- share three kids: sons Jeffrey Michael, 24, and Marcus James, 22, and daughter Jasmine, 19.

Alec Baldwin's Pregnant Wife Hilaria Is Expecting a Baby Girl

Hilaria Baldwin and Alec Baldwin attend the Guild Hall: Academy Of The Arts Lifetime Achievement Awards at The Plaza Hotel on March 4, 2013 in New York City.
Ireland Baldwin is getting a half-sister! Alec Baldwin's pregnant wife, Hilaria Thomas Baldwin, announced their unborn child's gender on Thursday, March 7, on Extra. "Alec and I are overjoyed that we are going to be welcoming a little girl into our lives," said the yoga instructor, who is also a lifestyle correspondent for the show.

The 28-year-old spoke with Us Weekly about her first pregnancy at the Academy of the Arts Lifetime Achievement Awards in New York City March 4. "At the beginning I wanted pineapple and citrus, which was not typical for me, but then you get heartburn so I had to stop that," Thomas Baldwin revealed. "I don't have really crazy cravings. I definitely eat more than I did before, but nothing too crazy."

At the time, the parents had no idea if they would be welcoming a boy or a girl this summer. "We're finding out the gender soon," Thomas Baldwin said.

The first-time mom-to-be is wasting no time getting ready for their daughter's arrival. "I'm reading a lot, although I'm learning it's not good to read too far in advance because then you freak out," she told Us. "I saw a birthing video the other day and I was like, 'That's too much information for me! I don't want to know that yet!'"

Though Orphans star Baldwin, 54, had hoped to name their baby Massimo had it been a boy, his wife wasn't sold on the moniker. "Every day we change our minds," Thomas Baldwin said. "I think at the end you sort of to look at [the baby]."

This will be the second child for Baldwin, who is already father to 17-year-old daughter Ireland with ex-wife Kim Basinger.

Kelly Osbourne Has Seizure, Is Rushed to Hospital in an Ambulance

Kelly Osbourne attends the 21st Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party at Pacific Design Center on February 24, 2013 in West Hollywood, California.
Kelly Osbourne was rushed to an L.A. hospital just before noon on Thursday, March 7, after suffering a seizure while filming her E! show, Fashion Police, multiple outlets are reporting. According to ET Online, the 28-year-old star was taken from the scene on a stretcher.

TMZ reports that Osbourne was sitting in her chair when she turned to Melissa Rivers and said, "I don't feel good." She then fell out of the chair and started shaking. The seizure lasted for about 30 seconds, ET Online reports, during which time Rivers and other crew members rushed to her side. An EMT, who just happened to be in the audience, also ran to the stage to help.

Osbourne woke a short while later, but was taken to a hospital by ambulance to be evaluated. Fashion Police co-host Joan Rivers, who was present on set during the incident, told TMZ that her costar "is fine." And a source tells Us Weekly that Osbourne is "speaking with doctors and under evaluation. Her condition is stable."

It's not yet known what led to the frightening episode. Osbourne's rep could not be reached for comment.

Gordon Ramsay on Feud With Father-In-Law: In a Sense, I've Had Two S--t Dads

Gordon Ramsay attends the 21st Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party at West Hollywood Park on February 24, 2013 in West Hollywood, California.
Gordon Ramsay's family feud is still going strong. The 46-year-old celebrity chef is still fuming over bad business and personal relationships with his father-in-law, Chris Hutcheson, and doesn't hold back his true feelings in a new interview with Men's Journal, on stands Friday, March 8.

"First my father let me down, and then my father-in-law let me down," Ramsay says. "In a sense, I've had two shit dads."

The Kitchen Nightmares star became business partners with his wife Tana's father in Gordon Ramsay Holdings shortly after they married in 1996. At the time, Ramsay said he and Hutcheson were so close that they were like "two wings of the same plane."

But Ramsay started investigating loans Hutcheson was taking from the company in 2010 with the help of a private detective, and discovered his father-in-law was living a double life with a mistress and two children, Men's Journal reports. Ramsey claims that Hutcheson hacked his email after he fired him, and subsequent lawsuits were filed. (Hutcheson has denied any financial impropriety. The lawsuits between Hutcheson and Ramsey have since been settled.)

"I mean, Tana's mother would be on the phone with Chris, and he was saying to her, 'Oh, my God, the snow in France is ridiculous, and I won't be back for a few days,'" the Masterchef star recalls. Gordon and Tana are parents to daughters Megan, 15, and Matilda, 11, and twins Jack and Holly, 13. "While literally at the same time the detective was on the other line saying to me, 'Right, he just landed at Heathrow, and he's being picked up by a blonde, who's driving his car.'"

"And then to cast Tana and the grandchildren off like he did," he continues. "I mean, what would it take for me to do that to my daughter? What kind of man would I be? What kind of evil f--k would you be, to s--t on your family to that extent and bring in this new family that had been hidden for 20 years? What kind of man would I be?"

Ramsay's relationship with his own father wasn't any better. His dad, Gordon, abandoned his family in 1991 to start a new life with a different family, but died seven years later of alcoholism at age 53.

One of the last times Ramsay saw his father was when he invited him to dinner at his restaurant. "He didn't really understand the menu, and he asked for a glass of red wine, which he topped off with 7-Up or Sprite. He said it made it taste better. I didn't know what to say," he admits. "But I could see my French sommelier's toes curling. And I was so embarrassed that I made up an excuse that I had to go to a meeting."

Miley Cyrus Steps Out Without Engagement Ring After Cryptic Tweet

Miley Cyrus leaving the studio March 6, 2013.
Miley Cyrus' ring is off -- for now, at least. On Wednesday night (March 6), the 20-year-old singer headed to a recording studio in an all-black outfit, complete with spiked leather coat. Not in the mood to smile for photographers, the former Hannah Montana star was missing one major accessory: Her engagement ring from fiance Liam Hemsworth. Designed by Neil Lane, the bauble -- Hemsworth, 23, proposed last June -- features 3.5 carats, with a center stone that dates back to the 19th century.

The LOL star stepped out sans bling hours after denying that she and her former Last Song costar Hemsworth are on the outs. "I didn't call off my wedding," she tweeted. "Taking a break from social media. #draining."
Sources close to the couple tell a different story about the young Hollywood pair. "Liam and Miley are done," a pal says in the new Us Weekly, out now. "She says she's over it," the friend adds of the star, who's now busy recording her fourth album after putting her own career on hold to be with the Hunger Games star.

For much more on the couple's troubled times -- why Hemsworth is "struggling to understand" his fiancee's shocking transformation, which A-list actress he was "making out" with, their "passionate" fights and more --  pick up the new Us Weekly, on stands Friday.

Lisa Vanderpump, Kellie Pickler and Wynonna Judd Rock Dancing With the Stars Costumes

Lisa Vanderpump, Kellie Pickler, Wynona Judd
Lisa Vanderpump, Wynonna Judd and Kellie Pickler are no strangers to sequins, but the trio take things to a whole new level in the first official promo pictures for the sixteenth season of ABC's Dancing With the Stars.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Vanderpump, 52, rocks a strapless gown and matching heels in her signature color, pink. The Bravo reality star will compete with new pro Gleb Savchenko. "He's going to have to carry me around the dance floor," Vanderpump jokes in a behind-the-scenes video. "I'm going to give it my best shot, but I need a good teacher. He's easy on the eyes, so it's going to be a little easier.

Judd, meanwhile, selected a more demure look, opting for a pewter long-sleeved, floor-length dress. The country music legend is paired with pro Tony Dovolani, who won his first Mirror Ball trophy during the All-Stars season in 2012. "I picked him before we even met," the 48-year-old said of Dovolani, whose previous partners include reality stars Melissa Rycroft, Audrina Patridge and Kate Gosselin. "I said, 'I just have a feeling. I said I will do Dancing With the Stars if I can dance with Tony,' and so I got my wish."

Pickler, who is growing her hair out after shaving her head to support a friend stricken with breast cancer, rocks a strapless aqua gown with crystal embellishments. "We want people to underestimate us, so that way they're not riding on our coattails," the 26-year-old said of competing with pro and three-time champ Derek Hough. "I've never ballroom danced before. . . We're very serious about this competition, because we're going to take that shiny ball back to Nashville, Tennessee."

The trio's competitors were revealed on Good Morning America Feb. 26: boxer Victor Ortiz, Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman, actor D.L. Hughley, Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones, Disney Channel star Zendaya Coleman, comedian Andy Dick, Olympic figure skater Dorothy Hamill and actor Ingo Rademacher. The final contestant will be revealed before the new season begins Monday, March 18.

Khloe Kardashian on Pregnant Kim's Health: Mommy and Baby Are Doing Fine

TV Personalities Khloe Kardashian and Kim Kardashian attend the 21st Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party at Pacific Design Center on February 24, 2013 in West Hollywood, California.
Kim Kardashian  and her baby-to-be have the support of her fans -- and her family. Shortly after news broke that the pregnant reality star, 32, was on doctor-ordered rest following a health scare, her sister Khloe addressed the situation -- with gratitude -- on her blog.

"A lot of you have expressed concern in the recent hours about Kim," Khloe, 28, wrote. "And I just wanted to let you all know that mommy and baby are doing fine and just taking it easy right now."

A pal told Us Weekly earlier on Thursday, March 7, that Kim "just needs to take a little rest" following a mandate from her doctor. The E! star arrived back home in Los Angeles on Tuesday following a trip to Paris. "She's been working a lot, and [plus] a divorce and the move and everything else she has going on," the pal note.

Added Khloe on her blog of the well-wishers: "Thank you so much to all of our wonderful fans and loved ones for your concern and support. We love you!"

North Korea threatens nuclear strike, U.N. expands sanctions

North Korean soldiers attend a military training in this picture released by the North Korea's official KCNA news agency in Pyongyang March 6, 2013.
North Korea threatened the United States on Thursday with a preemptive nuclear strike, raising the level of rhetoric just before the U.N. Security Council approved new sanctions against the reclusive country.

The White House said North Korea's threats would only lead to Pyongyang's further international isolation and declared that the United States was "fully capable" of defending against any North Korean missile attack.

China's U.N. Ambassador Li Baodong said Beijing wanted to see "full implementation" of the new U.N. Security Council resolution that tightens financial restrictions on Pyongyang and cracks down on its attempts to ship and receive banned cargo.

North Korea has accused the United States of using military drills in South Korea as a launch pad for a nuclear war and has scrapped the armistice with Washington that ended hostilities in the 1950-53 Korean War.

A North Korean general said on Tuesday that Pyongyang was scrapping the armistice. But the two sides remain technically at war as the civil war did not end with a treaty.

North Korea threatens the United States and its "puppet," South Korea, on an almost daily basis.

"Since the United States is about to ignite a nuclear war, we will be exercising our right to preemptive nuclear attack against the headquarters of the aggressor in order to protect our supreme interest," the North's foreign ministry spokesman said in a statement carried by the official KCNA news agency.

North Korea conducted a third nuclear test on February 12, in defiance of U.N. resolutions, and declared it had achieved progress in securing a functioning atomic arsenal. It is widely believed that the North does not have the capacity for a nuclear strike against the mainland of the United States.

With tensions high on the Korean peninsula, the U.N. Security Council voted unanimously to expand its sanctions on North Korea. The new sanctions were agreed after three weeks of negotiations between the United States and China, which has a history of resisting tough measures against its ally and neighbor.

The resolution specifies some luxury items North Korea's elite is not allowed to import, such as yachts, racing cars, luxury automobiles and certain types of jewelry. This is intended to close a loophole that had allowed countries to decide for themselves what constitutes a luxury good.

"These sanctions will bite and bite hard," said U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice.

The export of luxury goods to North Korea has been prohibited since 2006, though diplomats and analysts said the enforcement of U.N. sanctions has been uneven.

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, a former South Korean foreign minister, welcomed the council's move, saying in a statement that the resolution "sent an unequivocal message to (North Korea) that the international community will not tolerate its pursuit of nuclear weapons."

The success of the new measures, council diplomats said, will depend to a large extent on the willingness of China to enforce them more strictly than it has in the past.

Pyongyang was hit with U.N. sanctions in retaliation for its 2006 and 2009 nuclear tests. Those measures were subsequently tightened and expanded after several rocket launches by the North.

In addition to the luxury goods ban, there is an arms embargo on North Korea, and it is forbidden from trading in nuclear and missile technology.

George Lopez, a professor at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana and a former member of the U.N. panel that monitors North Korea sanctions compliance, said the new measures should have a real impact on North Korea's movement of money and constrain access to equipment for its nuclear and missile programs.

"Now, we may yet see another launch or a bomb test, but over the medium term this resolution will degrade DPRK capabilities to grow its program," Lopez said, using the acronym for the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.


North Korea's threats were the latest in an escalating war of words by both sides across the armed Korean border this week.

The North's unnamed foreign ministry spokesman said it would be entitled to take military action as of March 11 when U.S.-South Korea military drills move into a full-scale phase.

"North Korea will achieve nothing by continued threats and provocations. These will only further isolate the country and its people and undermine international efforts to promote peace and stability in northeast Asia," Rice told reporters.

President Barack Obama's administration said it had reassured South Korea and Japan "at the highest levels" of its commitment to deterrence, through the U.S. nuclear umbrella and missile defense, in the face of the new threats.

Glyn Davies, the State Department's point man for North Korea, also said in testimony prepared for a Senate hearing that Washington will not accept North Korea as a nuclear state.

Russia's U.N. Ambassador Vitaly Churkin called for restraint and an end to the threats. "Let's keep our minds cool and keep focused on the need for the only possible rational course of action, and that is returning to six-party talks," he said.

North Korea, which held a mass military rally in Pyongyang on Thursday in support of its recent threats, has protested against the U.N. censures of its rocket launches. It says they are part of a peaceful space program and that the criticism is an exercise of double standards by the United States.

The North's shrill rhetoric, however, rarely goes beyond just that. Its last armed aggression against the South in 2010 came unannounced, bombing a South Korean island and killing two civilians. It was also accused of sinking a South Korean navy ship earlier in the year, killing 46 sailors.

North Korea was conducting a series of military drills and getting ready for state-wide war practice of an unusual scale, South Korea's defense ministry said earlier.

South Korea and the United States, which are conducting annual military drills until the end of April, are watching the North's activities for signs that they might turn from an exercise to an actual attack, said South Korea's defense ministry spokesman Kim Min-seok.

Kim declined to confirm news reports that the North has imposed no-fly zones off its coasts in a possible move to fire missiles, but he said any flight ban limited to near the coast would not be for weapons with meaningful ranges.

South Korea's military said in a rare warning on Wednesday that it would strike back at the North and target its leadership if Pyongyang launched an attack.

Facebook News Feed Gets Facelift

Facebook News Feed Gets Facelift
Facebook has redesigned its News Feed to be more engaging for users and more profitable for the company.

Speaking at a media event Thursday at the company's headquarters in Palo Alto, Calif., CEO Mark Zuckerberg said, "What we're trying to do is give everyone in the world the best personalized newspaper we can."

The new design is more consistent across the Web, tablets and mobile phones and more visually appealing, thanks to a greater emphasis on images over text. In practical terms, Facebook's focus on improved personalization means that users will have more control over the content they see.

For example, Facebook is introducing several new feeds to complement its existing News Feed. There's an All Friends feed that lists everything shared by friends in chronological order. There's a Photos Feed that's just photos from friends and liked pages. There's a Music Feed that includes posts about music and local concerts. And there's a Following feed, which carries news from liked pages and followed people, not unlike Twitter.

Chris Cox, VP of product at Facebook, said the new design is "about getting Facebook out of the way as much as possible." Evidently, the company has recognized that it needs to provide users with the option to see everything posted by friends or followed entities, rather than only surfacing a subset of posted content.

This is a fairly significant revision of Facebook's approach to the social ad business, given that earlier this year, Zuckerberg described Facebook's business as resting on three pillars: News Feed, Timeline and Graph Search. These new feeds represent a lot more pillars, or a major reinforcement of the News Feed pillar.

During Facebook's Q4 2012 earnings call in January, Zuckerberg indicated that upcoming News Feed changes will expand the company's advertising business.

"[N]ow we have this News Feed ads business that we barely tuned and there's a big opportunity in front of us to make every ad that we're showing a lot better," said Zuckerberg. "... As our News Feed design evolves to show richer kinds of stories, that opens up new opportunities to offer different kinds of ads as well."

Facebook's News Feed is already a success on mobile devices. According to eMarketer, the company took in 18.4% of the $4 billion U.S. mobile display ad market in 2012, ahead of Google's 17%. The redesign should help Facebook do even better in the mobile ad market.

Facebook's redesign starts rolling out on the Web Thursday, and is expected to reach mobile devices in a few weeks.

Companies must build more social networking bridges to customers, suppliers and partners -- not just among internal users.

Tate Donovan Praises Ex-Girlfriend Jennifer Aniston's Fiance Justin Theroux

Tate Donovan; Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston
There's no hard feelings between Tate Donovan and his ex-girlfriend Jennifer Aniston. Appearing on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live March 6, the 49-year-old admitted that while he's no longer "in touch" with The Break-Up actress, he's happy she found love again with screenwriter Justin Theroux.

"He's a great guy, a really good guy. Super smart," Donovan said of Aniston's 41-year-old fiance. The Deception actor added that the future spouses are a "good couple." Donovan has known Theroux for many years, as they were once both involved in Massachusetts' Williamstown Theatre Festival.

Donovan and Aniston dated from 1995 to 1998, and the actor even played the actress' love interest on the NBC sitcom Friends during that time. Aniston went on to marry Brad Pitt in 2000, while Donovan wed writer Corinne Kingsbury in 2005. Both marriages ended in divorce.

In January 2013, Donovan shared his joy for Aniston's engagement at a Television Critics Association cocktail event for NBC. "I am very happy for her," the single but "kind of dating" Donovan told Us Weekly of his 44-year-old ex. "I hope it lasts and that they have a great time. And I'm sure they will. They seem like a very happy couple."

Aniston and Theroux got engaged in New York City in August 2012. This will be the first marriage for Theroux, who was previously in a long-term relationship with stylist Heidi Bivens. The Wanderlust costars would love a ""destination wedding, kind of like eloping with a few friends," a source told Us last year. "There will be the feeling of a vacation, since that's their favorite thing to do."

Vanessa Minnillo Opens Up About Her Struggle With the Baby Blues: I Felt Lost, Unloved, Alone

Nick Lachey and wife Vanessa Minnillo arrive at LAX in Los Angeles, California with their baby son Camden on January 13, 2013.
Vanessa Lachey (nee Minnillo) wanted to be a mom more than anything. So when she gave birth to a healthy baby boy last September -- her first child with husband Nick Lachey -- she felt like she was living a dream. And then reality settled in.

In a new blog entry on her official website, the first-time mother opens up about overcoming the baby blues just a couple of weeks after welcoming son Camden John. (Lachey first revealed her struggle in an interview with Us Weekly on Feb. 20, but at the time she said it occurred four days after his birth.) "I never thought it would happen to me," she admits.

Things with Camden got off to a great start. "I remember that first night in the hospital, after 14 hours of labor and 3 hours of pushing, how it was ALL worth it!" Lachey, 32, gushes. "I couldn't understand how anyone could ever feel anything less than this enormous amount of pure love! I looked over and saw Nick holding Camden in his perfect hospital swaddle, and I felt so at peace and right where I was supposed to be."

That feeling lasted until 9 a.m. the next morning, when Lachey woke up in a panic over missing a feeding. "I was screaming at myself, Why didn't he wake?! Why did my maternal instinct not kick in and wake myself to feed him? He must be STARVING! I'm a bad mom!" she writes. "Tears were rolling down my cheeks. My hopes and dreams of being the perfect *natural* mother were shattered."

The Wipeout host put the incident behind her and tried instead to focus on basking in the glow of new motherhood, but within two weeks of bringing her son home from the hospital, she "noticed a swing" in her emotions. Part of it was not having enough quality alone time with her son when he wasn't feeding -- "I was sick of feeling like a milk machine," she says -- and part of it was realizing the magnitude of the responsibility she had taken on.

"I think it's just fear...The fear of not knowing what I'm doing. The fear of 'messing up' this little boy. The fear of being responsible for a human being and not knowing any 'life' experiences to compare moments with him to," she writes. "No matter how many books you read, NOTHING prepares you better than the real thing. I felt lost, unloved, alone and at my wits end."

Lachey's inner turmoil continued to fester until Sept. 29, when the weight of her world came crashing down around her. "I started crying. I was feeding Camden and crying my eyes out," she confesses. "I felt like I had officially come undone."

"I didn't feel like myself," she continues. "Where was the super woman who always thought and knew she could do it all? Where was the organized Vanessa who had it all under control no matter what the obstacle? She was gone, and I thought...forever."

Lachey gave the baby to Nick and took a drive to clear her head. "I went to Starbucks, came home, took a shower, put myself together and came upstairs to give my husband a kiss and tell him I was sorry...I was sorry for the weeks of losing myself. I was sorry for the weeks to come when I [wouldn't] be myself," she explains. "And it made me feel so much better."

"It's okay if we can't do it ALL," she writes, "because...we have already done so much...There is no Camden without me. And I want him to see the best of me in hopes that he can grow up to be an amazing, wonderful happy man who finds his own me in himself. That's what family and life is all about. Being whole with yourself, to be the best you for everyone else."

Demi Moore Wants Spousal Support from Ashton Kutcher, Officially Files Divorce Papers

Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore arrive at the Coalition to Abolish Slavery & Trafficking's 13th Annual Gala on May 12, 2011 in Los Angeles, California.
Your move, Ashton. Sixteen months after announcing the end of their six-year marriage, Demi Moore has officially filed divorce papers against estranged husband Ashton Kutcher. The LOL star, 51, submitted the documents to Los Angeles Superior Court on Thursday, March 7, TMZ confirms.

Moore's filing comes nearly three months after Kutcher filed papers of his own, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason behind their split. Moore also cited irreconcilable differences, but unlike her soon-to-be ex, she is requesting spousal support and seeks to have Kutcher pay her attorney fees.

A source tells Us Weekly that the actress tried to reach a settlement in private but "was tired of waiting" for her ex, 35, to stop "stalling" the process. "One always hopes that you can negotiate these things and do them under the radar," the insider says. "Nobody wants to be public. But at a certain point you need to move forward."

Moore plans to do just that once her divorce from the Two and a Half Men actor -- now dating his former That '70s Show costar Mila Kunis -- is finalized. "She's doing great," the source tells Us. "She's happy, she's traveling."

Justin Bieber Responds on Twitter: Only God Can Judge Me

Justin Bieber attends Q102's Jingle Ball at the Wells Fargo Center on December 5, 2012 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Justin Bieber has had enough. Bogged down by reports of a birthday party gone wrong and a delay at his March 4 London show surrounding him this week, the 19-year-old singer set the record straight to his 35 million Twitter plus followers on Wednesday, March 6 in a lengthy note.

"Rumors rumors and more rumors. Nothing more nothing less. Might talk about them one day. Right now I'm just gonna be positive. Can't bring me down," he wrote. "I'm focused on the good things in life. I'm blessed and not forgetting it. I'm giving back every day for it. Can't phase me."

"Fake stories to sell papers I guess are part of the job. But I'm a good person. I know that. You can't tell me different. We know the truth," Bieber added. "As long as my family, friends, and fans are with me you can say whatever. We are all equal in God's eyes and we have a responsibility to each other."

The "Boyfriend" singer continued by addressing specific stories about reports on recent shirtless photos, rumored girlfriends and being supposedly fined for his 40-minute concert delay.

"So make up stories about fake fines and make no mention of the positive . . . or say when I came out of my show with my shirt off because after performing for 2 hours I might be sweaty I was going into a club (really?). Or any girl I stand next to is my girl or that I don't care, or that I don't feel, or that a 19 year old going to a club in Europe is wild . . ." he wrote. "I understand it is part of the job to be judged . . . but judge me on the facts, judge me on the music, and be careful of the judgement you pass."

"But know this . . . I'm only judged by one power, and I serve him," Bieber said. "So yeah I will continue being me. I will continue to serve, to perform, to care, to love, to smile, to dance, to play, to sing . . . and you are welcome to join, because I carry no hate. We got too much love for that. I'm about the music."

And with that, the teen heartthrob concluded his speech with a positive message.

"Gonna enjoy the day and keep smiling. So should all of you," he wrote. "Much love. I see you beliebers = I love you."

Kim Kardashian Is Fine, on Doctor Ordered Rest at Home

Kim Kardashian attends the Topshop Topman LA flagship store opening party at Cecconi's Restaurant on February 13, 2013 in Los Angeles, California
Pregnant Kim Kardashian is taking it easy -- doctor's orders. Expecting her first child (with love Kanye West) this July, the 32-year-old reality starlet endured a minor pregnancy scare on Tuesday after arriving home in Los Angeles from Paris. "All fine -- doctor-ordered rest," one pal assures Us Weekly.

Indeed, in addition to her always-hectic schedule of work duties around the world, Kardashian is also dealing with a move -- and her divorce case with ex Kris Humphries.

(After many contentious months -- Humphries, 28, had argued unsuccessfully for an annulment -- a judge recently ruled that Kardashian and Humphries' divorce trial will begin May 6, with all parties required to attend. In happier news, Kardashian and rapper West, 35, purchased an $11 million home in Bel Air, Calif. back in January.)

Explains the source: "She's been working a lot, and with a divorce and the move and everything else she has going on, she just needs to take a little rest."

Draghi Keeps Gradual Recovery Faith as ECB Cuts Forecasts

European Central Bank President Mario Draghi stuck to his view that the euro region will gradually recover later this year even as officials trimmed their economic forecasts and considered cutting interest rates.

“Later in 2013 economic activity should gradually recover, supported by a strengthening global backdrop and our accommodative monetary policy stance,” Draghi told a press conference in Frankfurt after the ECB left its benchmark interest rate at 0.75 percent, a record low. While officials discussed cutting borrowing costs today, the “prevailing consensus was to leave the rates unchanged,” Draghi said.

Uncertainty caused by the stalemate in last month’s Italian election, where anti-austerity parties won more than half the vote, has renewed concern that the euro area may struggle to overcome the sovereign debt crisis and exit recession.

The ECB today predicted the 17-nation economy will shrink 0.5 percent this year, more than the 0.3 percent contraction forecast three months ago. The estimate for 2014 growth was reduced to 1 percent from 1.2 percent. The central bank also cut its 2014 inflation projection to 1.3 percent from 1.4 percent. It aims to keep inflation just below 2 percent.
High Bar

The inflation outlook is “broadly balanced,” Draghi said, even though the risks to the economy are on the downside.

“The ECB is now projecting lower growth than any other institution and has lowered the inflation projection for 2014,” said Christoph Rieger, head of fixed-rate strategy at Commerzbank AG in Frankfurt. “The fact that it still decided against a rate cut underscores that the bar is higher than many assume.”

The euro climbed as Draghi spoke and traded at $1.3096 at 4 p.m. in Frankfurt compared with $1.3020 beforehand. While the euro has risen 8 percent since July, it has dropped about 4 percent since the start of February.

The central bank’s new forecasts assumed an exchange rate of $1.35 for this year and next.

The ECB president omitted from his opening remarks a statement made last month that the euro’s appreciation posed a downside risk to inflation. The exchange rate is broadly in line with its long-term averages, he said later.

Earlier, the Bank of England held its bond-purchase program at 375 billion pounds ($565 billion) and kept its key rate at 0.5 percent.
Berlusconi’s Return

Italian bond yields jumped after anti-austerity parties led by former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi and comedian-turned- politican Beppe Grillo won about 55 percent of the vote in last month’s election. That triggered fears of a new wave of market turmoil across the euro region that would send borrowing costs surging from Rome to Madrid and Dublin.

“Markets understand that we live in democracies,” Draghi said, adding that overall, confidence is returning to the euro area. “Fragmentation is not worsening it’s actually improving, it’s receding” and the recovery path is “largely unchanged,” he said.

The yield on Italy’s 10-year bond dropped to 4.62 percent today from 4.9 percent on Feb. 26. Spain’s 10-year yield has declined to 4.90 percent from 5.37 percent in the same period.

Concerns that record-low rates aren’t being properly transmitted in some nations has stoked speculation that the ECB may introduce additional measures to encourage bank lending to small and medium-sized companies.

“We always think and study and reflect, but we are not committing to or planning anything special,” Draghi said, adding the ECB’s monetary policy “will remain accommodative for as long as needed.”

“Draghi remains dovish,” said Anders Svendsen, an economist at Nordea Bank AB in Copenhagen. “But more weakness is needed to make the ECB cut rates.”

Jobless Claims in U.S. Unexpectedly Fall to a Six-Week Low

The number of Americans who filed for unemployment benefits declined to a six-week low, showing further improvement in the labor market.

First-time jobless claims unexpectedly fell by 7,000 to 340,000 in the week ended March 2, the lowest since the period ended Jan. 19, according to data today from the Labor Department in Washington. The median forecast of 50 economists surveyed by Bloomberg called for an increase to 355,000. The four-week average dropped to a five-year low.

Companies are easing up on dismissals as purchases of equipment climb and households maintain spending in the face of higher payroll taxes. Further declines in firings are a first step toward bigger employment and wage gains, and a report tomorrow may show payrolls picked up in February.

“Every indication we have is that the labor market is beginning to pick up steam,” said Drew Matus, deputy U.S. chief economist at UBS Securities LLC in Stamford, Connecticut, who correctly projected the drop in claims. “It’s all consistent with 2013 being an okay year despite all the fears about what sequestration might mean or Europe might do.”

Stock-index futures held gains after the figures, with the contract on the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index expiring this month rising 0.3 percent to 1,543.7 at 8:46 a.m. in New York.

Another report showed the U.S. trade deficit widened more than forecast in January as demand for imported crude oil rebounded. The gap grew by 16.5 percent to $44.4 billion from $38.1 billion in December that was the smallest in three years, Commerce Department figures showed in Washington. The median forecast in a Bloomberg survey called for the deficit to increase to $42.6 billion.
Economists’ Estimates

Economists’ estimates in the Bloomberg survey ranged from 332,000 to 362,000 claims after an initially reported 344,000 in the prior period.

No states estimated the number of claims last week and there was nothing unusual in the weekly data, a Labor Department official said as the figures were released.

The less-volatile four-week moving average fell by 7,000 to 348,750, the lowest since March 8, 2008.

The number of people continuing to receive jobless benefits rose by 3,000 to 3.09 million in the week ended Feb. 23. The continuing claims figure doesn’t include Americans receiving extended unemployment benefits under federal programs.
Extended Benefits

Those people collecting emergency and extended payments decreased by about 225,400 to 1.78 million in the week ended Feb. 16.

The unemployment rate among Americans eligible for benefits held at 2.4 percent in the week ended Feb. 23, today’s report showed.

Thirty-seven states and territories reported a decrease in claims, while 16 reported an increase. These data are reported with a one-week lag.

Initial jobless claims reflect weekly firings and tend to fall as job growth, measured by the monthly non-farm payrolls report, accelerates.
Government Spending

Defense contractors will be hit hardest by the across-the- board cutbacks in the growth of government spending. Rockwell Collins Inc. (COL), Boeing Co. (BA) and Huntington Ingalls Industries Inc. (HII) are among companies that have said they could announce headcount reductions.

Because the reductions extend over the next decade, “it’s still more of a question mark than it is a conclusion,” Ed Coleman, chairman and chief executive officer at Unisys Corp. (UIS), a technology services company based in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania, said at a March 4 conference. “It has, more broadly, the impact of slowing down decision-making processes in the federal government, which have not been particularly fast-paced for a while.”

“It does just add more uncertainty into that marketplace,” he said.

Salty diet may increase risk for autoimmune diseases

A new study finds another reason to cut down on the salt: Increased salt intake may trigger and sustain some autoimmune diseases.

Autoimmune diseases are illnesses that cause the immune system to attack healthy cells instead of pathogens and can affect any part of the body. This includes everything from Type 1 diabetes, psoriasis, multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office on Women's Health, there are more than 80 different types of autoimmune diseases that affect 23.5 million Americans.

Autoimmune diseases have been associated with an overproduction of TH17 immune cells, a type of helper T cell (or white blood cell) that produces an inflammatory protein called interleukin-17, but science hasn't been able to determine why some people produce more TH17 than others, Nature pointed out. But, three separate studies published in Nature on Mar. 6 may provide more clues.

Researchers note that autoimmune diseases have gone up in the Western world, and many scientists believe it is because of environmental factors especially changes in lifestyle and dietary habits. More consumption of highly processed food and fast food have been pointed out as possible causes.

The first study used technology developed by Hongkun Park, a physicist at Harvard University in Cambridge, Mass. Silicone nanowires (or minute structures made out of silicone) were used to change genes inside an immune cell without changing how the cell functioned. This was able to provide a model of how TH17 cells worked. Co-author Aviv Regev, a biologist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, said to Nature that this work was necessary because the scientists would have been "guessing in the dark" trying to figure out how the TH17 cells were controlled.

Researchers in the second study then watched immune cells being produced over a 72-hour time period. Serum glucocorticoid kinase 1 (SGK1) -- which regulates salt levels in other kinds of cells -- was observed every time a TH17 cell was created. Researchers then discovered that mouse cells created in high-salt conditions had more SGK1 expressions and more TH17 cells compared to those in a normal environment.

"If you incrementally increase salt, you get generation after generation of these TH17 cells," study co-author Vijay Kuchroo, an immunologist at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts, said to Nature.

The third study then built on the findings from the other two studies. Mice were placed on a high-salt diet and were observed creating more TH17 cells. The mice ended up having a severe form of multiple sclerosis called autoimmune encephalomyelitis.

"It's very clear in experimental models in animals that there's a dramatic effect going from low salt to high salt," author David Hafler, chairman of the department of neurology at Yale School of Medicine in New Haven, Conn., told Bloomberg.

Together the studies suggest that salt may spur the enzymes to create TH17 cells.

"We think of helper T-cells as sort of the orchestra leaders, helping the immune system know what the cells should be doing in response to different microbial pathogens," Dr. John O'Shea, director of intramural research at the U.S. National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases, in Bethesda, Md, said to HealthDay. He was not involved in the studies. "The strength of these papers is that they have found another factor that drives [helper T-cell] differentiation -- salt."

However, Hafler pointed out to HealthDay that salt may not be the only trigger since other genetic and environmental factors also play a role in autoimmune diseases. But, it does open the possibility that low-salt diets may benefit people with autoimmune disorders.

"They have now identified a biomarker, so you could treat people with a low-salt diet and then check for the marker in cells using cell cytometry, for example," O'Shea explained.
