When Anderson Cooper isn’t dodging explosions in Gaza (see video below), he’s going off on Twitter followers who accuse him of covering the Israel-Hamas conflict unfairly.

Weiss, a self-described “social media junkie” and “foodie,” criticized his story an Israeli air strike on a media center, writing “Report a fair story. Report facts.”

Lindsay Lohan has HAD IT with Michael Lohan, and the events of this month – leaking the phone call during her fight with her mom, and Friday’s intervention attempt – were the last straw.
The actress will seek a restraining order against him, according to reports.
Lindsay’s mom has been encouraging her to do this ever since MiLo secretly recorded and leaked a phone call she made detailing the epic fight with Dina earlier this month.
LiLo wasn’t on board with seeking legal protection … until now.
Originally she felt that cutting him off was good enough; now she thinks the onlyMore >
Stevie Nicks has issued a public apology.
A couple days after the Fleetwood Mac singer got involved in the Nicki Minaj/Mariah Carey feud by referring to the former as a “little girl” who needed to be choked, the artist has come out with a statement.
“I want to apologize for my remarks about Nicki Minaj’s behavior toward Mariah Carey which I said during a long and exhausting day of interviews,” Nicks tells Just Jared.
“It was very out of character for me and I deeply regret what I said. I feel very protective toward Mariah Carey who has gone through many difficulties in her lifeMore >

So much for that Kim Kardashian vs. Beyonce feud.
The wife of Jay-Z and the pretend girlfriend of Kanye West sat together Friday night at a Watch the Throne concert in Birmingham, England, smiling, laughing and dancing it up as their men performed on stage.
“Kim and Beyonce were dancing all night! They even went into the mosh pit!” a witness recounts to Us Weekly. “It was the most hectic thing ever!”
Previous reports stated that Beyonce took issue with Kim dating Kanye, partly due to the difference in upbringings between Knowles and Kardashian and partly, we presume, because Beyonce hasMore >
Saturday night honored the best in non-prime time TV as the Daytime Emmy Awards were handed out at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif.
“Daytime” is classified as 2 a.m. until 6 p.m., so there was a lot of ground to cover for Anderson Cooper and Oscar the Grouch, who served as co-hosts.
Despite two soap operas biting the dust this year (All My Children and One Life to Live), the annual award gala was a positive one across the board.
Notably, despite a ratings dip and rumors of Ann Curry’s firing, NBC’s Today Show nabbed the award for Outstanding Morning Show program just theMore >
As part of his whirlwind promotional tour this week, Justin Bieber spent some time with Jimmy Fallon.
But there was no art history mockery involved during this late-night visit.
Instead, viewers were treated to some serious competition between singer and host, as each has come out with a new album and each was set on proving he was more awesome than the other… at push-ups… at video games… at holding one’s breath… at dancing.

Known for her dirty mouth and extreme views, has Sarah Silverman finally gone too far? Some may believe so.
The comedian sent out a Tweet over the weekend that included two photos and a caption. In the first image, she’s joined by boyfriend Alec Sulkin and a puffed out belly. In the second, her stomach has returned to its regular size and it’s accompanied by the words:
“Got a quickie aborsh in cas R v W gets overturned.”
Silverman posted the Tweet in response to Mitt Romney becoming the presumptive Republican nominee for President. He referred to Roe vs. Wade last January as “one of theMore >

Note to ABC: Can you cancel the Oscars next year and just replace the ceremony with three hours of Jimmy Kimmel Live?
This talk show followed the 84th annual Academy Awards on Sunday night and delivered, oh, about 167 million times the humor.
First, we were introduced to Movie: The Movie. Then, Oprah Winfrey sat down as the featured guest and Kimmel pitched her on numerous ideas for the struggling OWN.
There was Oprah Repos Her Favorite Things, Oprah: After Dark and – because “reading is, like, the most boring thing in the world” according to Jimmy – the best idea of all: Book Club FightMore >
The Associated Press named the Mother Monster herself, Lady Gaga, the Entertainer of the Year Monday. Not a choice you’re going to find THG arguing with.
Edging the late Apple founder Steve Jobs by just three votes, the 25-year-old Gaga won the annual honor, voted on by 135 AP editors and broadcasters.
The award is based on who had the most influence on entertainment and culture in 2011, and from that standpoint, Jobs and Lady Gaga were neck and neck.
The singer has touched on a number of facets in the past year, from a hit album in Born This Way to a record 17 million Twitter followersMore >
Kim Kardashian is kooling it on the dating front for awhile.
At Thursday evening’s opening of the Kardashian Khaos boutique at the Mirage Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, the star says she’s remaining upbeat despite a rough 2011.
“I’m really thinking that 2011 was a lot of learning lessons,” Kim says of the past 12 months, which saw her get engaged, married and split from Kris Humphries.
“In 2012, I’m just excited for the New Year and the new me.”
Will the new Kim be just as phony and dull as the old one? Stay tuned.
Despite the sad, fast end of her fake marriage to Humphries, the superstarMore >
Following one of the most surprising, emotional results of the season (we miss you, Rachel!), The X Factor pretty much stuck to the script on this week’s results show.
After dragging out the elimination for as long as the show could – first, Florence + The Machine played, then Melanie and Chris advanced to next Wednesday’s finale – it came down to Marcus Canty and Josh Krajcik. And the latest hopeful sent packing was…
The fun dancer simply could not overcome a performance from the previous night that Simon Cowell labeled as “grotesque and horrific.”

Apparently, Chicago Bears receiver Sam Hurd was arrested on Wednesday by undercover Homeland Security agents after attempting to set up regular purchases of marijuana and cocaine to expand a drug distribution system he already had going.
