Steve Harvey at a ceremony to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Despite hand held cards and purported teleprompters, sources say Steve Harvey is using no script as host of the latest “Celebrity Family Feud”. In a recent episode, Harvey’s family, including his mother-in-law began quarreling when he asked they’d trade in their man for.

 

Acting jealous and shocked, the comedian continued the show by playing to his guests’ feelings. The ABC show had previously avoided hurting people’s feelings, but insiders are suggesting that Steve Harvey acted so spontaneously he may not have realized what the reaction would be. Post-airing analysts Joe Warbler and Jen Hannigan suggested Harvey looked quite dazed in subsequent shots.

 

The next part of the show featured basketball stars Ralph Sampson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. A stagehand reported the card Harvey was holding had merely a doodle.

 

Scriptwriters were unable to answer inquiries regarding the purported missing scripts to the show. One was overheard saying that the “host might not need one – he’s so much funnier without it.”

LOS ANGELES - OCT 12: Lindsay Lohan arriving at the "Saints Row: The Third" Video Game Launch at the Supper Club on October 12, 2011 in Los Angeles, CA

For actress, singer, and model has been reported to say she is getting more publicity by remaining elusive than doing any work in the public spotlight. Sources in Hollywood claim her strategy is calculated. No spotlight has meant focusing on other things, Lohan has said, but remaining in her position of anonymity has boosted her morale.

Many blame various personal and legal problems for Lohan’s absence from the public eye. Some insiders have suggested for some time she may be staying low for a reason. She has been seen working with kids and at women’s shelters, doing good deeds.

However, rumors have surfaced she will appear in “Sick Note”, an upcoming UK series in which she’ll play her favorite role, the boss’ daughter.

“I’d also like to space movies. It’d be so cool to shoot aliens and stuff, or be the savior of a planet,” Lohan said to a friend under Oath of Embellishment.

Rapper P. Diddy earned $130 million in the past year, according to Forbes. According to the organization, that is even more than Beyonce. Sources close to Diddy say he is contemplating what to do with all of his money.

According to rumors, the rapper/businessman contacted agents with an offer to buy the Olsen twins. He also bought two mansions in the Hamptons and a condo in Miami. Representatives of Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen didn’t return phone calls.

Artwork for a forthcoming album cover reportedly features only a dollar sign. Also, Diddy has made numerous tweets about spending money, earning money, and all things money, according to an anonymous source.

Diddy’s past 12-month earnings make him the highest paid celebrity in the world for last year. Business interests include a record label and possibly a bid to send the first human to Mars sometime in the future.

On Monday, Taylor Swift surprised an interviewer when she announced she was working on a full-length album of Katy Perry covers. The two pop stars have been sparring as of late. Back and forth comments from both have flooded the airwaves.

The as of yet to be titled album will feature “Firework”, and reportedly an acoustic version of Perry’s “I Kissed a Girl”. A highlight is also expected to be “Last Friday Night”, which insiders say may feature Swift on banjo.

“It seems like she hates me, but that’s because some things I said were misunderstood, I think,” Swift said. “People think I’m mean. It bothers me, but I try not to think about it too much. I just want to have fun and everyone will love this record.”

According to reports, the album will be exclusively available on iTunes.

Alien flying with lights took the bikeCelebrity actress, stylist, and all-around socialite Drew Barrymore claimed this week that E.T., the extraterrestrial she starred with in the 1982 movie of the same namesake, abducted her several years later for unknown reasons. Barrymore claims she was taken between October 4-6, 1995, from her California home.

Barrymore said in unsubstantiated reports she didn’t know how long she had been in outer space. “They took some body fluids and examined me, you know, alien stuff, but not without permission. The aliens on the ship were very, very nice.”

According to reports, medical examiners were unable to find evidence of an abduction. So far, nobody has come forth to report the actress had been missing for any substantial period of time.

The Non-Associated Press reported that no suspicious activity was reported in the local area at the time Drew claims to have been abducted by extraterrestrials. A local dispatch obtained over wires did, however, report a couple of missing bicycles around the same time.

1186px-Friends_logo.svgUnconfirmed reports from the Hollywood Press suggest that the TV Show Friends, which ran from 1994 to 2004, will return for all new episodes soon. Insiders also report that each member of the main cast will retain ownership of the rights of the show on a specific network.

For example, Matt LeBlanc will secure the rights to the TV show’s NBC contract. There’s unsubstantiated rumors that Matthew Perry has a deal with PBS, and Lisa Kudrow will form her own network and air multiple episodes of the classic show simultaneously, and continuously.

Rumors suggest the new show may or may not take place in Manhattan. Jennifer Aniston has ABC rights to it, but is reportedly planning to push it on the Sci-Fi Network. The network assignment for Courtney Cox has not been revealed, but she expressed interest in promoting the show to The Weather Channel, according to the Non-Associated Press.

Rather than at Warner Brothers Studios in Burbank, CA, the new ‘Friends’ will be filmed in an undisclosed, underground location.

Defying what physicists have claimed to be impossible, The Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons revealed secretly that he has a ball of hot plasma in a plastic jar. Parsons is reported to have told several members of the show’s cast, which anonymously told network executives.

 

Details are sketchy regarding this ball of plasma. Inferences from several statements suggest it is about two-and-a-half by three inches, and is infinitely hot. Details also suggest the plasma has been in a state of equilibrium for about three months.

 

“It would require the gastroeconomic equivalent of the kinetic energy of a sub-micro-atomic quasar. The mathematical calculations would require more than any supercomputer could handle, except for my head,” Parsons said in an unrelated statement.

 

Some have demanded to see the ball of plasma, suggesting a subpoena be issued. Opponents (including Sean Spicer) say there is nothing to see and the entity has been properly filed and secured.

Last week a revival to the television show ‘Rosanne” starring Rosanne Barr was announced. Reports now suggest the hit show will feature the Conners not in a struggling household, but a state-of-the-art trailer.

The ‘Conner Trailer’, as many familiar with the production call it, will look like a beaten motor home on the outside, and inside. Loose and flaking panels however, turn to reveal crisp and modern solar arrays. Also, a hidden radar system will alert the family through the smoke detector system of intruders.

Geothermal heat will power the trailer, and all water will be recycled. Another hidden feature will reportedly be an automatic deep anchor system that will activate in high winds. Rumors of an anti-missile defense system have not been proven.

Also, sources close to the producers say that the number of Beckies in the show has been increased four-fold, allowing for more quirky situations and plot twists.
