Kathy Griffin doesn’t need to worry about whether or not her man smells like the Old Spice guy. Why? Because her new man is the Old Spice guy! Maybe!
Friends tell Us Weekly that the comedian and Isaiah Mustafa “are not boyfriend/girlfriend, but they are definitely spending time together and getting to know each other.”
Griffin Tweeted the following photo of her and Mustafa back in September, saying at the time that the aspiring actor was “super hot.”
But might this all be a PR stunt? Like Griffin’s fake past relationships with Levi Johnston and Adnan Ghalib? It does not appear thatMore >
We’ve always know that Ellen DeGeneres was comedic royalty.
But it turns out the former American Idol host actually has some soon-to-be royal blood inside of her.
Ellen revealed on her talk show yesterday that she received a letter from the New England Genealogical society and it told her she was a 15th cousin of Prince William’s fiancee, Kate Middleton. Who knew?!?
Joked the comedian:
“I’m definitely invited to the wedding now… Let me know if you need me to plan the bachelorette party. Because I found some straws that are shaped like… well, never mind.”
Justin Bieber completed one of the more packed media blitzes in recent memory this week by appearing on last night’s edition of Saturday Night Live.
The 16-year old sensation, teetering dangerously close to overexposure as he promotes the February 11 release of “Never Say Never,” stopped by for two segments:
- A skit with host Dana Carvey, in which the comedian reprised his role of “Church Lady” and flirted with the Biebs.
- A digital short with Andy Samberg, in which the pair mocked The Roommate.

So Mary Harvey profoundly stated to Jane Velez-Mitchell during an interview on HLN this week, as Steve Harvey’s former lover was asked why she waited so many years to lash out against her husband.
The bitter ex-wife was so rattled by the simple question that she actually apologized to the host for her rambling response, saying she was under a lot of stress. She also complained about her lack of “access” to her son, saying the court gave the comedian custody because Steve said she was a “nobody.”
Which either means theMore >
Chelsea Handler and 50 Cent need to go public already.
While the E! host has insisted they’re just friends, she didn’t shy away from sharing a few intimate details during an appearance on The Tonight Show.
After Jay Leno asked if she called her man “Fiddy Cent,” the Chelsea Lately host deadpanned, “I don’t know, I call him Curtis when we’re having sex.”
50 cozies up to Handler … and her producer Heather McDonald.
Continued Handler, “No, but he does have a real name. His name is Curtis. Curtis … I don’t know, I should find out.” She’s kidding … we think. Hard to tell.

“This woman is a jerk. I hate her.” – Jerry Seinfeld on Lady Gaga
While the comedian was (partially) joking in an interview with New York’s WFAN radio, he’s definitely not gaga over the singer’s recent baseball game antics.
“I can’t believe that they put her in my box, which I paid for,” Seinfeld said, referring to Lady Gaga’s bizarre, profanity-laced meltdown June 10 at Citi Field.
Gaga showed up during the fifth inning of the day game between the Mets and Padres and was furious that her front-row seats were close to photographers.
