Feud alert! CNN Newsroom host Don Lemon and Oscar-nominee Jonah Hill — man, isn’t it still a little weird to see “Oscar-nominee Jonah Hill”? — got into a virtual pissing match yesterday. And while Hill has deleted his half of their heated exchange, plenty of sources had already copied what they said before the original tweets disappeared into the ether.
It all began when Lemon complained that Hill had been rude to him in a hotel. “Said hi to @jonahhill in hotel. Think he thought i was bellman. Didn’t know his name til bellman told me. A lesson to always be kind.” When a follower asked Lemon to clarify what had happened, Lemon resorted to name calling: “He [Hill] was a tool.”
In a tweet that’s since disappeared, Hill shot back at Lemon: “I said hi. What do you want me to do, move in with you? I was in a hurry. Didn’t realize you were a 12 year old girl. Peace.” Whoa — way harsh, Tai. Here’s Lemon’s response: READ FULL STORY »

Ricky Martin is still “livin’ la vida loca.”
The bangin’ singer-turned-Broadway star tweeted a pantsless picture of himself over the weekend (your treat for the day) after auctioning off his trousers to benefit the nonprofit AIDS fundraising organization Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

If it’s trending, you can bet celebs are going to tweet about it.
And this weekend, there was no bigger story than the impending “Frankenstorm.” Morning news – and particularly the weather people strolling the New Jersey boardwalk — had plenty to say, and they weren’t the only ones. Most simply tweeted messages of support, but others started questioning things. Lindsay Lohan, for one, thought the news was in hyper-panic mode: “WHY is everyone in SUCH a panic about hurricane (i’m calling it Sally)..? Stop projecting negativity! Think positive and pray for peace.”
