Is there any doubt, however, that nextMore >
Tameka Foster is intent on proving that Usher is an unfit father.
The singer’s ex-wife filed papers in court last week that allege a number of indiscretions by Usher, most of them based on the way he has treated Tameka, not the way he has been toward his two sons.
But now Foster is raising the accusatory ante, demanding a judge force Usher to take a drug test ASAP because she believes he’s been popping pills around the pair’s children. Usher has refused to take this bait so far, deeming his ex’s claims to be “frivolous and unfounded,” merely meant to “harass and embarrass” the artist.
Jon Stewart and The Daily Show staff pulled a fast one on GOP Presidential candidate Jon Huntsman over Twitter. What did the comedian do to his namesake?
Well, the Republican, who is active on social media, held a “Twitter Town Hall meeting” on Tuesday, asking followers to send him questions via hashtag #Q4Jon.
Stewart, obviously, thought up a fun prank and asked his Twitter followers to “tweet actor Jon Hamm your questions by 4:15 Eastern! Hashtag #Q4Jon.”
You can imagine the results. One question thus read, “Jon, in ten years do you see yourself following George Clooney’s or TomMore >
Bethenny Frankel will not be hosting a nationally-syndicated talk show after all.
Talk of a gig such as this for the ex-Real Housewife heated up over the summer, but The New York Post now reports no network wants to make a deal with Frankel, perhaps due to a couple recent scandals.
First, a class action lawsuit was filed against the makers of Bethenny’s Skinny Girl Maragarita, alleging false advertising against the supposedly organic brand.
Then, a debate erupted over whether or not Frankel was actually lost at sea during a September excursion with her family. But there is good news forMore >
James Cameron is bringing Titanic back to the big screen in 3D.
Unlike some notable re-releases, the director has promised that not one second of the film will be different (cough, George Lucas), save for the three dimensional experience, when it returns to theaters in April of next year.
Your heart will go on again as soon as you watch the trailer:
One of the most beloved pictures of all time, the 1997 film starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet was also the highest grossing until it was displaced by Avatar, which James Cameron also directed. Not a bad pair ofMore >
A judge has set the trial of former presidential candidate John Edwards to begin January 30, a week earlier than when prosecutors and defense lawyers sought.
In federal court, U.S. District Judge Catherine Eagles signed an order Tuesday setting the schedule for Edwards’ trial on charges of campaign finance violations.
Edwards was indicted following an exhaustive investigation in June.
John Edwards is accused of asking two wealthy campaign donors to provide nearly $1 million in secret payments used to hide pregnant mistress Rielle Hunter.
Making matters even worse is the fact that he was aMore >
Mel Gibson is totally pulling Justin Bieber duty this week.
Fighting paternity claims of his own, Gibson has “no connection at all” to Laura Bellizzi, a random woman who claims he impregnated her over the summer, his rep said.
Alleged “friends” of hers say that they dated over the summer and frequently attended parties together. Whether or not that’s true, Mel’s denying he did this …
Former reality star Laura Bellizzi says Mel Gibson knocked her up. That old guy creepin’ in the pic? We have no idea who that is, but he does not look pleased.

Justin Timberlake and Kelsey de Santis attended a U.S. Marine Corps ball Saturday night. She’s the Marine corporal who asked him to the event via YouTube in July.
Timberlake was snapped by a fellow Corps member looking dapper – and a little shell shocked – at the Richmond, Va., event, seated at a table surrounded by Marines.
The wife of one of the other U.S. Marines at the ball said that the singer/actor “posed for pictures and seemed like a normal guy,” according to the N.Y. Daily News.
Here he is with his date:

Kris Humphries is preparing for battle.
The power forward, who reportedly had been refusing to go through with his divorce from Kim Kardashian, has now hired Lee Hutton, a Minnesota-based attorney who represents a number of pro athletes.
But where is Humphries?
“He doesn’t want a war. He’s lying low,” a source tells E! News about the free agent, who is still without a job, as the NBA lockout extends into Thanksgiving.
A war, meanwhile, is evidently taking place within the Kardashian household. A new report cites major tension between Kim and her siblings, as they are sick of her fake,More >
