This came thru late yesterday morning…TV legend Valerie Harper reveals in this week’s People that she’s been diagnosed with incurable brain cancer and has about three months to live. She was diagnosed in January with the terminal condition where cancer cells spread into the membrane surrounding the brain. Harper says “I don’t think of it as dying, I think of being here now.” Harper, who beat lung cancer in 2009, adds, “I’m well past my expiration date already. I’ve had a good run, what more can I ask for?” She is 73.

There's a rumor going around that Liam Hemsworth cheated on Miley Cyrus with January Jones after the Oscars last month. And ever since then, there's been talk that their engagement is OFF. Well, Miley hit up Twitter to deny it…and then she announced that she's quitting Twitter. But it didn't last. She said, quote, "I am so sick of L.A. And sick of the lies that come with it. I didn't call off my wedding. Taking a break from social media. #draining" Within a few hours, she was Tweeting again. But apparently, it's going to be all business from here on out. Not discussing anything but my music from now on." I love how quitting facebook and twitter is the grown up version of running away from home.

Kim Kardashian is putting on the baby weight! The Star tabloid says she has gained 65 pounds since getting pregnant, and she's really sweating it. A so-called "source" says she's up to 185 pounds, she's eating and crying uncontrollably and she doesn't even like Kanye West to see her naked anymore. Therefore, as soon as the baby is born, she's going directly under the knife and spending millions of dollars to, quote, "get everything lifted."
According to "The National Enquirer", Tim McGraw has a "secret son", 23-year-old Tyler Zarbo. However, it's not as salacious as it sounds. He is NOT Tim's biological child, he's actually the son of Tim's former fiancée, Kristine Donahue. The "secret" part is that Tim has been supporting Tyler but he hasn't told ANYONE about it, including his wife Faith Hill. Tim LEFT Kristine FOR Faith back in the mid '90s. Apparently, the Enquirer is also painting Faith as insanely jealous. She's never forgotten that Tim broke up with another woman to be with her, and she's worried that he could do it again to her."
As you'd expect, as soon as this story got out, Tim's people issued a statement. Here it is:
Quote, "The 'National Enquirer' story is full of inaccuracies and misrepresentations about Tim and Faith. We aren't going to comment on false statements that appear to have been sensationalized for the purpose of selling tabloid magazines."
There's been some talk that NBC is secretly planning to give Jimmy Fallon "The Tonight Show" when Jay Leno’s contract is up next year. The "New York Post" reports that NBC is "grooming" Howard Stern to replace Fallon on HIS show, "Late Night." The "Post" suggests that, by bringing Stern to "America's Got Talent" last year, NBC was able to show that he CAN be tamed for TV, and he can appeal to a younger audience. There's no official word from NBC or Stern.
Dennis Rodman is really taking this North Korea thing seriously. His rep tells TMZ that he plans to go back there within the next six months, and this time, he's interested in more than just basketball. He actually wants to broker a peace deal between his new pal Kim Jong Un and President Obama. The rep also says Rodman is SORRY he spoke so highly of Kim Jong Un and his father, without really understanding the scope of their human rights violations.
Jessica Simpson accidentally revealed that she's pregnant with a BOY on last night's "Jimmy Kimmel Live". When she realized she goofed, she said, "I can't believe I just did that, that was not planned." Earlier in the day, Ellen DeGeneres offered onsies for Jessica to take home. She could either have the boy onesie or the girl onesie. After she hesitated, Ellen handed her the boy onesie saying (quote) “You never know, but that’s my bet.”

Khloe Kardashian’s hubby Lamar Odom was in a New York courtroom earlier this week in connection with his ongoing child custody battle with ex-girlfriend Liza Morales, but he didn’t seem too worried about it. In fact, the LA Clippers star fell asleep on a courthouse bench. Lamar is currently fighting Liza for custody of their two children, Destiny, 14, and Lamar Jr., 11 (they had another son who died when he was six months old). In an open letter to the Daily Beast, Liza wrote about how she felt finding out Lamar was getting hitched. “I don’t think I’ll forget the tight knot I felt in the pit of my stomach the morning I received the text message with three simple words on the screen. It read 'I’m getting married’ and it was from the man I’d spent more than 10 years of my life with,” she wrote. “How could the man who’d constantly given me reason after reason for why we couldn’t get married just yet now be ready to tie the knot so quickly? There aren’t words to explain how I felt that day.”
Russell Crowe thinks he saw a UFO. The Les Miserables star posted footage earlier this week of some sort of flying object near his office in Sydney, Australia. “UFO? Time Lapse Photos Outside RC's Woolloomooloo Office (THESE ARE REAL!),” wrote Crowe. “A friend and I set camera to capture fruit bats rising from Botanic Gardens, this was a big surprise.” Many of Crowe’s followers were skeptical, with some suggesting it could be a plane or car taillights reflected off of glass, but Crowe rejected that, writing, “The camera is on a balcony not behind glass.”
