Back in 2003, a Chicago sports bar purchased the infamous Bartman ball for $113,824 just so it could exorcise the Cubs demons by blowing it up. I hope that’s what the person who’s the current high-bidder to buy the “one-of-kind” baseball autographed by Kim Kardashian and her soon-to-be ex, Kris Humphries, has in mind. A bidder named Wahoopaz is apparently willing to part with $1,025 for the unusual ball, which was signed when the basketball star and Minnesota native threw out the first pitch before a Twins game last July.

Gisele Bundchen explains Patriots loss: 'My husband cannot f--ing throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time.' -- VIDEO
Sports fans, namely of the Super Bowl-winning New York Giants variety, have been soaking in every bit of expert analysis and endless SportsCenter replays from last night’s thrilling (fourth quarter) rematch between the Giants and the New England Patriots. But while the sports world is wrapped up in stats, final scores, and non-stop footage of Mario Manningham’s game-changing catch, it turns out there’s one person who really knows the final, concrete conclusion about why Super Bowl XLVI ended with the Giants winning over the Pats 21-17: Gisele Bundchen.

This was the winter of our disconnect.
Despite the general belief that the Year of the Dragon is supposed to usher in prosperity, such has not proven true for some of our favorite A-listers. In the last month, no fewer than a dozen celebrities have announced that they would be buying one-way tickets on the break-up train straight to Singlesville. What gives? READ FULL STORY
The devastating news about the divorce of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries has left us with so many unanswered questions: If those two kids can’t make it in this crazy, mixed-up world, who can? Why can’t I remember what I did 72 days ago? Are you there God? It’s me, PopWatch.
Thankfully, Taiwanese animators NMA, who always explain everything in a much clearer way, have come to the rescue. In just over a minute, their latest cartoon accurately pinpoints every major detail from the wedding bonanza and divorce bonanza, including how Kris wanted Kim to move to Minnesota with him (to wear Viking helmets, apparently) and that he was so caught off guard by the divorce (after she coldy alerted him by spelling out “DIVORCE” in rose petals) that he was (literally) steaming mad. Watch the full clip below. Looks so much like Kim it’s uncanny, isn’t it PopWatchers? READ FULL STORY
Everybody loves Melissa McCarthy, the Emmy-winning, SNL-killing, breakout star of Bridesmaids. (And EW’s current cover queen.) Well it turns out that her actor and writer husband Ben Falcone, whom she met during their stint together in the Groundlings comedy troupe, is every bit as marvelous and cool.
Good news, Earth: They’ve spawned. (Their daughters Vivian and Georgette are 4 1/2 and 19 months.) McCarthy describes Falcone as the kind of man who will read to his daughter from her favorite princess book every night but change the dreary narrative unbeknownst to her. “The story is written as ‘Jasmine was a nice girl,'” McCarthy groans. “‘She had no life. She was very sad and lonely. Then she met her prince. They got married and lived happily ever after and he ran the kingdom.’ So I’ll be brushing Georgie’s teeth and he’s in the other room reading to Viv and he’s like ‘When Jasmine opened her new orthodontist’s office the prince came in with terrible teeth and she saved him.’ And the next night he’ll be like ‘Jasmine opened up a wild zoo!’ and I hear Viv like ‘No, no, no, the Prince did it!’ And he’s like ‘No he didn’t, no he didn’t. He worked for Jasmine for the next 17 years of his life.’” READ FULL STORY
And they said it wouldn’t last!
Okay, so they technically they were right: After a, uh, fairytale 72 days of marriage, Kim Kardashian is filing for divorce from Kris Humphries. (Plan your new Halloween costumes accordingly!) While credit must be given to America’s royal couple for surpassing the likes of Dennis Rodman and Carmen Electra (nine days), Britney Spears and Jason Alexander (two days) and Robin Givens and Svetozar Marinkovic (a reported seven minutes) in the pantheon of shortest celebrity marriages, here’s some other numbers to crunch: READ FULL STORY
When talk of a possible Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore split sparked a few weeks ago, the couple’s silent Twitter accounts only fueled the rumor mill flame.
Since then, people have been buzzing about what they are posting on the social networking site. And since neither party has tweeted anything along the lines of, say, “It’s over! I’m free! So long, famous significant other!”, followers have been chomping at the bit to find anything that resembles a clue about the status of their relationship. Because, what else is there to do? Get a hobby? Psh. READ FULL STORY
Things are not looking great for the six-year marriage of Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher. Though Two and a Half Men‘s new star has tweeted that we shouldn’t jump to conclusions — “When you ASSUME to know that which you know nothing of you make an ASS out of U and ME” — the tabloids are quoting sources close to Moore as saying that their relationship is teetering. Hence, paparazzi are stalking Kutcher to see if he’s still wearing his ring, Taiwanese artists have tackled the rumored discord, and oddsmakers are even speculating on their future together. According to PaddyPower.com, a website that clearly takes bets on anything, the odds of the couple divorcing before the end of 2013 are a cynical 2/5. Clearly, the smart money is thinking split. In fact, the smart money has already moved on to speculating about Ashton’s next girlfriend. Currently, Scarlett Johansson is the odds-on favorite (8/1) to land on Kutcher’s arm, with Eva Longoria (12/1), Jennifer Lopez (12/1), and Lindsay Lohan (16/1) close behind. The educated gambler in me trusts in past performance, so if I was a pathetic, compulsive gambler, I’d like Courteney Cox (25/1) and Madonna (33/1) as smart bets. I’m not compulsive enough, though, to lay money down on Sophia Loren (90/1).
Are you repelled by the practice of gambling on a marriage’s demise? Or is this the best news Lindsay Lohan has heard since Mean Girls?
