People magazine says Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are trying to move on from his recent DWI arrest. A source says, "She's upset, as anyone can imagine. She doesn't understand why he would do something so stupid as attempt to drive himself home after a night of drinking. She's disappointed. It's already been tough on their marriage with Justin on tour, having to rely on FaceTime to stay connected. The fear is that more tough times are in store. And if Justin isn't worried about losing Jessica, he should be."

Another source says, "Her friends think she’s married to a loser and hate that so much of her life is taken up with trying to get Justin to stay on the straight and narrow. But the arrest was a wake-up call: It’s time for her to realize she can’t do it alone. If he keeps going down this path, their marriage will be over."



In Touch Weekly reports Miley Cyrus warned her dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, against marrying Firerose, but he didn't listen.  An insider says, “Miley is still pretty angry with her dad for the terrible way he treated Tish [Cyrus], so it’s not going to be as simple as all is forgiven, just because he’s single again. He’s going to have to work very hard to get back into her good graces, but divorcing Firerose is definitely a step in the right direction.”

Geo TV says Ben Affleck is allegedly planning to move in with Jennifer Garner because of his rift with Jennifer Lopez. A source tells the network, "Ben’s got a key to come and go as he pleases, and he’s been spending a ton of time at her place, coming over for dinners and hanging with the kids. It’s great for his state of mind and the kids love having him around. That’s why Jen’s open to the idea of having him move back in, she’s got a lot of space so he wouldn’t be in her way. She knows it would bring a lot of comfort to their kids.’’


The Daily Mail says Matt Damon issued a stark warning to Ben Affleck before he married Jennifer Lopez. A source tells the site, "Matt tried to warn Ben when he got back together with JLo that this could happen. Matt was there to help Ben get it together after their first split and he felt like this would happen again. As things started falling apart, Matt told Ben that he supports whatever choice he makes, but wants him to jump in and focus on his work. Ben spent so much time focusing on JLo's projects just like he did the first time around. He told Ben, 'What has she ever done for your career?' Matt is the only real guy friend Ben has. He would not let him get back on the bottle, and has been on him to make sure of this.'"


PopCulture.com says Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez's alleged breaking point came during the filming of her documentary. A source claims, "The making of her documentary [The Greatest Love Story Never Told] was a real eye-opener for them. Things that are private I had always felt are sacred and special in part because they're private. They both sat back and looked at how different they really are. While Jennifer loves being the center of attention, Ben would rather live his life away from the spotlight. At the end of the day, they both just want different things out of life."

Yes, his relationship with his kids is very sad for him right now, but he insists that this isn’t a reaction to that pain, that he had every intention of starting a family with Ines regardless of that. People can speculate about his motives all they want, but the fact is Brad wants two, maybe even three kids, with Ines and he would do the adoption option again in a heartbeat if that’s something Ines wanted too.”



Drew Carey tells TV Insider that it’s common for Price is Right contestants to use 'liquid courage' before competing on the show. “They’ll have a [marijuana] gummy or I’ll smell alcohol on their breath.

And he goes, ‘I’m a skateboarding rabbi.’ He didn’t think he was going to get picked, and he totally tripped.”

Dear Fonseca,

My mother-in-law is the worst person on the planet. On Wednesday night, we invited the family out to (local restaurant) to celebrate my daughter's 12th birthday. Everyone bought presents. I was stunned when my daughter opened my mother-in-law's gift. She bought her a scale. Everyone at the table gasped. I can't believe she bought a scale for a tween. That has to be the worst gift ever. My mother-in-law says it's a great gift because my daughter can monitor her weight and this in turn will make her a healthier person. I totally disagree and think the gift is going to make my daughter self-conscious. The family is divided over the gift because they don't want to offend my mother-in-law. What is your opinion on this? Good gift or bad gift?
