In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Jennifer Lawrence gets in a fender bender because she thought she saw Honey Boo Boo and One Direction calls Piers Morgan stinky.
HIT: Jennifer Lawrence car accident caused by wishful Honey Boo Boo thinking
With each and every uninhabited Jennifer Lawrence interview, the actress continues to give us more and more reasons to love her. This week, The Hunger Games starlet had to explain how she rear-ended a family in Georgia because she thought she saw Honey Boo Boo. On the 0.00001 per cent chance Lawrence reads this, we can totally be BFFs, nerd out on Harry Potter and watch Here Comes Honey Boo Boo together. Call me!
MISS: CNN’s Piers Morgan vs. One Direction
On the heels of the news that David Beckham was leaving the L.A. Galaxy, CNN’s Piers Morgan tweeted, “No serious top flight team would sign Beckham for football reasons any more- he should retire gracefully.” 1D’s Liam Payne and Harry Styles harmlessly replied to Morgan saying that Beckham is their hero. Apparently, that was enough for Morgan to throw in a couple of unwarranted 1D quips of his own, including a suggestion that Beckham should join the group and Harry should grow a pair. Was it a feeble attempt on Morgan’s part to finally get some publicity in America since joining CNN? Maybe, maybe not. But we do know the boys got the last laugh as #PiersMorganisSmelly trended on Twitter.
HIT: Journalists go crazy on 777 tour
Hands down some of the best stories of the week had to be the ones filtering out of the 777 Boeing airplane Rihanna and her crew hired to take her, 150 or so journalists and fans to seven cities in seven days for her 777 tour (see where she’s going with the 7s?). While the singer stayed up till 6 a.m. slinging out shots from behind the bar, some music journalists were going crazy due to lack of sleep and access to the singer. During one airplane ride, a radio DJ from Australia went streaking down the airplane aisles to the delight of his tired and frustrated peers. Another reporter, this time from GQ, somehow managed to keep typing a story out on his laptop even though he was falling asleep. At the end of the tour on Tuesday, Rihanna apologized for her absence and mentioned that she would do it all again (I can hear the invitations being ripped apart now).

We’re happy because Justin Bieber is happy. And he’s happy because he’s performing for 500 lucky winners. And they’re probably beaming. So everyone is happy, all because of Justin Bieber…
Rihanna and Piers Morgan
You’d think Rihanna would take Piers Morgan’s burn about her new short haircut personally, but apparently making debatably offensive comments is the way to score an interview with her. Duly noted.

As “America’s Got Talent” gears up for its seventh season, Howard Stern, the King of all media, is hired on as a judge to replace Piers Morgan.
If you’re a big fan of the outspoken radio DJ, don’t fret. Production for the televised talent show will be moved to New York City, so Stern can continue on with his Sirius/XM radio show, BuzzFeed reports.
I have to admit, I find “America’s Got Talent” extremely corny and boring but now that Stern is on board, his larger-than-life personality will definitely make things more entertaining to watch. I’d be curious to hear him speak his mind to a family of baby jugglers from Oklahoma.
The New York Post writes the shock jock allegedly requested $20 million dollars for his new job. Being a judge is no joke, Stern tells his listeners.
“I take judging very seriously. In order to up my credibility, I will wear a suit,” he jokes.
In this video below, you can watch the cocky Howard talk about how he looks forward to the show, especially to “judge these lunatics”.
No word yet on whether or not anyone’s replacing the snooze-fest of a host that is Nick Cannon.
Lily Allen and her husband, Sam Cooper, have a new reason to smile.
According to the United Kingdom’s Daily Mail, the couple welcomed their first child Friday. This comes after several pregnancy hardships for Allen, having lost a baby boy one year ago. She also suffered a miscarriage in January 2008, when she was with Brit musician Ed Simons.
Coronation Street actor Charlie Condou took to Twitter to confirm the news that the singer had had her baby, writing: “She has indeed, a little girl.” Many, many other British celebrities have congratulated the pasty couple via Twitter – however, her spokesperson has declined to confirm.
She isn’t the only celebrity in baby-bliss (that’s a thing, right?) this Thanksgiving weekend. Of course, Selena Gomez is now a big sister: “Momma and Brian are finally letting me share the news! My mommy’s carrying my baby brother or sister I’m the happiest girl in the world!” she tweeted yesterday.
Another British media mogul, CNN’s Piers Morgan, welcomed a daughter with wife Celia Walden and confirmed on his Twitter. “It’s true. I’ve become a dad for the 4th time, to a baby girl called Elise. She’s absurdly beautiful and utterly adorable.” Maybe this will effect his sensitivity.
Charlie Sheen appeared on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight, his first interview since “Two and a Half Men” shut down production this evening. Although Sheen claimed to be sober (he even brought a recent drug test as proof), there is no question Charlie wasn’t all there.
Piers asked him about if he had any regrets. “There’s a couple things I wish I hadn’t started,” said Sheen. “One of them is smoking cigarettes.”
And he summed it up: “I’m still alive, which is pretty cool.”
Did you see the interview? What did you think of Charlie’s performance?
Extra TV is reporting that Simon Cowell has released some big news! According to Cowell, Piers Morgan from “America’s Got Talent” could be Larry King’s replacement on CNN.
“[Morgan] was under contract to us on ‘America’s Got Talent,’ so he called me and we helped sort of broker the deal,” Cowell said. “I knew about this weeks ago.”
Although there has been nothing officially announced about King’s replacement, Cowell is very confident in Morgan’s ability as an interviewer.
“Piers is without question the best interviewer I’ve ever been interviewed by… apart from you, Terri.” (He of course is referring to Terri Seymour who was interviewing him at the time).
However there is another candidate for Larry’s replacement who has a connection to Simon Cowell. That is of course Ryan Seacrest, who has stood in for Larry King a few times.
We feel that Seacrest would be a better fit. What do you think?
