Mila Kunis and Macaulay Culkin break up. Who knew they were together?

For eight years? How did I miss this? I read People‘s Star Tracks each week. I sneak USWeekly inside my open New Yorker when I’m trying to look smart on the train. Is it possible that my eyes saw them together in the glossy pages and my brain just refused to recognize the reality of their relationship? I mean, I understand he’s 30, but he’s also forever nine years old, due to his cheek-slapping performance in Home Alone. And if you’ve seen Black Swan, then you’ve done your own cheek-slapping about Kunis, but somehow, it’s not the same.

Did you know they were a couple for eight years? Why didn’t you tell me?

Kate Gosselin says kids not expelled, that she's in a 'weird' alternate world

Kate Gosselin says she feels like she’s in “a weird alter-reality world.” So do we, Kate, especially in this Entertainment Tonight clip where she explains that her kids are not expelled (as reported by some outlets), they’re just being tutored at home because they need breathing room — but that she’d never stop putting them on TV. Kindergarten! It’s so much tougher than a career. READ FULL STORY

Jessica Simpson's latest release: Her engagement. What should come next?

Jessica-SimpsonImage Credit: Kevork Djansezian/Getty ImagesJessica Simpson has made a thoroughly postmodern career of living her personal life for public consumption. One assumes she didn’t set out to do so, but even from the very start of her teen pop career, she was better known for her public declarations of virginity than for her music. (When’s the last time you spun “I Think I’m in Love With You” on the old iPod?) Then she finally hit superstardom as a reality star on MTV’s surprise hit Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica, and all bets were off. She was so watchable as her unvarnished self that even her god-given voice would never again be able to compete with the prospect of, say, hearing her debate the difference between chicken and fish.

Now, five years, a divorce from Nick Lachey, and countless tabloid covers later, her life still trumps her work. Case in point, her announcement this week that she’s engaged to her boyfriend of five months, ex-NFL player Eric Johnson. The woman, you must admit, has an uncanny knack for timing: Not only does the surprise betrothal come just as she’s releasing a Christmas album, but also a week after ex Lachey popped the question to his longtime love, Vanessa Minnillo. Gossip blog speculation has run predictably rampant, analyzing everything from whether she bought her own ruby engagement ring to whether she’s trying to beat Lachey to the altar to whether she’s headed for financial ruin for reportedly not wanting a prenup. I choose to believe in true love and thus hope for nothing but the best from Simpson’s impending union; but if cynics were right, and this were some kind of publicity move, it would be pretty brilliant. And it wouldn’t be the first brilliant PR move from her: She turned mean media scrutiny of her weight into several magazine cover stories about body image and even a VH1 documentary show, The Price of Beauty. She cemented the media-dating-industrial-complex of John Mayer. She convinced someone a line of edible beauty products was a good idea. She designs surprisingly great, affordable shoes.

The real question: Is there any chance for her entertainment career to reflect the same brilliance at this point? READ FULL STORY

Heidi Klum out-does all celebrity Halloween costumes, as usual

heidi-klum-sealImage Credit: Bryan Bedder/Getty ImagesCelebrities dress up for Halloween just like the rest of us. Except if you’re Heidi Klum and Seal. Then you dress up for Halloween like it’s the most important thing ever and seriously go all-out, as they have been known to do for the last several years. Behold this year’s get-up. Klum is dressed “an alien transformer,” and Seal is the Silver Surfer, though that belt is definitely not canon.

Elaborate, non-skanky costumes are awesome, but I’m partial to the homemade kind, no matter what. This amazing Tauntaun costume, complete with stilts, is an all-time great, and it’s impossible not to love this little kid dressed as Robocop. On the celebrity front, Kyle MacLachlan gets high marks.

What were the best costumes you saw out and about, PopWatchers?

'Gossip Girl': Blake Lively and Penn Badgley break up: OMG will the show be the same?

Gossip-Girl-Break-UpSpotted: Dark clouds hovering over Manhattan as Lonely Boy and S go their separate ways. Cue the sounds of dexterous teens and twentysomethings texting away: OMG Blake and Penn broke up! Le sigh, PopWatchers. If these two can’t make it, is there any hope for us mortals?

Reps for both Blake Lively and Penn Badgley confirmed to People that the couple has ended their nearly three-year relationship in September (See: Happier times). Will Blake Lively cover up her signature cleavage in mourning? They’re both young, attractive, and rich, so sure, they’ll bounce back, but doesn’t an extra little piece of you die inside at the thought that Gossip Girl may never be the same? READ FULL STORY

David Arquette apologizes on Twitter for his comments to Howard Stern

David Arquette took some flak yesterday for his extremely candid interview with Howard Stern, and he’s taken to Twitter to apologize. “I went on Howard Stern yesterday to provide clarity and honesty about what I’m experiencing,” he wrote, “but while doing that I shared too much….it’s alright for me to be honest about my own feelings but in retrospect some of the information I provided involved others and for that I am sorry and humbled.” Sadface for you, David Arquette. I’m so torn between loving juicy, horribly too-private details, and having a shred of dignity and human decency. It’s tough!

Admit it, PopWatchers: There’s a part of you that takes celebrity divorces a little bit personally, right?

Clip du jour: Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara's new Web series

Welcome to the Internet, Anne Meara and Jerry Stiller. Their new Web series, Stiller & Meara, is nine kinds of awesome. It’s almost like if you do comedy together for decades, you get pretty good at it! Aww. On episode 1, they discuss Facebook, and on episode 2, they discuss The Jersey Shore (“they’re like trolls!”). Amazing: READ FULL STORY

Portia de Rossi now officially a DeGeneres. Change is difficult.

Portia-de-RossiImage Credit: Angela Weiss/Getty ImagesSome names just roll off the tongue, don’t they? Portia de Rossi had one of those, earning her a place just below Mariska Hargitay on my list of names I wish I had instead of my own. But the AP reports she’s now Portia DeGeneres after the court granted her petition to take wife Ellen DeGeneres’ last name. Hmm…that’s going to take some getting used to. Courteney Cox adding the Arquette to her name after marrying hubby David was strange enough; I just barely got used to that. Now this?

That said, congratulations to the DeGenereses. May your friends save copious amounts of time over their lifetime when addressing Christmas cards thanks to this melding of names. Also a plus? The name Portia de Rossi (which really wasn’t even her birth name to begin with; it was Amanda Lee Rogers) is now up for grabs. Dibs!

Update: Through her rep, the actress released the following statement to EW.com: “I am thrilled to legally adopt my wife’s name. I will continue to use Portia de Rossi for professional purposes.”

Lunchtime Poll: Rihanna kissing Rihanna

Children, fame and fortune are cool. Mega cool. But everything has a downside, and famous people have an affliction unfamiliar to us normals: If you get really, really well-known, Madame Tussaud’s will make a freakish wax sculpture of you. The latest victim is Rihanna, who has now updated her Twitter with a brain-imploding Twitpic in which she gives Robo-Rihanna a European cheek-smooch. If we could see the brain bubbles over this image, we’d probably see nothing but happy rainbows inside Real Rihanna’s brain…but what’s on the mind of her waxwork clone?

CBS' Julie Chen(bot) and Leslie Moonves: Prepare yourself for lots of 'Talk' about this Hollywood power duo!

Les-Moonves-chenImage Credit: ReutersS/Danny Moloshok/LandovToday, at the Television Critics Association summer press tour, CBS mainstay Julie Chen sat on a panel — alongside Leah Remini, Holly Robinson Peete, Sharon Osbourne, Sara Gilbert, and Marissa Jaret Winokur — and chatted about the network’s new from-a-mother’s-point-of-view talkshow, The Talk, that’s launching this fall on CBS. (The show is basically The View, with a motherly twist.)

For the first time, members of the press were allowed to see a bit of the pilot CBS shot for the show. And let’s just say, these ladies aren’t holding back too many details about their personal lives, especially Early Show co-host and Big Brother host Chen, who functions in a sort of moderator role. This, of course, answers the burning question: Will Chen talk about her buzz-y relationship with the head of CBS Leslie Moonves? It’s a resounding “yes,” based on today’s clip and the discussion. Heck, during the panel, Chen told the audience what her pet peeve with Moonves is. (It’s that he wakes their 10-month-old baby up sometimes in an attempt to “connect.”)

Granted, that story wasn’t too scintillating or racy — and truly, Chen chose her words carefully — but based on the frankness of the chatter, we’ll be hearing a lot about Hollywood high-roller Moonves. In fact, it sounds like we might hear about him in the bedroom, in the bathroom, in the playroom — wherever he is around the Chenbot and Baby Chenbot. Are you ready for all that, PopWatchers?
