Alec Baldwin stalker found guilty; Walters ruins Hunger Games screening; Adam Levine is People’s Sexiest Man Alive, Andy Kaufman probably not alive and Jennifer Aniston chooses work over wedding.
BALDWIN STALKER FOUND GUILTY
Alec Baldwin’s stalker Genevieve Sabourin was found guilty yesterday on all five counts of stalking and harassment. The Canadian actress was sentenced to 180 days in jail, on top of the 30 days she’s already serving for contempt of court. Sabourin was arrested in April outside Baldwin’s New York apartment. She claimed she had a sexual relationship with the 30 Rock star, which he has denied.
ALEC CURSES OUT PAPARAZZI
Meanwhile, Alec Baldwin’s win in court didn’t make him any happier. Not long after the verdict was announced, Alec was caught on video threatening a photographer who was hanging around his Manhattan apartment. The 30 Rock star, who was with his wife and daughter, ran after the pap cursing and calling him a “c**ksucking f*g." Baldwin later insisted he did not say the homosexual slur. "Acoustic analysis proves the word is fathead,” he wrote on Twitter. “Fathead ... Anti-gay slurs are wrong. They not only offend, but threaten hard fought tolerance of LGBT rights."
WALTERS TALKS HER WAY THROUGH HUNGER GAMES SCREENING
Barbara Walters apparently never learned you are not supposed to talk during movies. Sources say The View host was at a screening for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire earlier this week and ruined it for everyone around her. She arrived with four assistants who waited on her hand and foot, with one even forced to clean her glasses. Then during the screening, Walters had a hard time following the film’s plot, so she was constantly asking her assistants questions. “Every time someone came onscreen, she’d say out loud, ‘Who’s that?’ Then an assistant would fill her in,” a source told the New York Daily News. “She couldn’t understand any of the plot twists and would ask ‘What’s going on?’ every five seconds. It was crazy. Even when characters reappeared on screen after having shown up 20 minutes earlier, she’d be like, ‘Who’s that?’”
Q-Catching Fire is the second of three books in the Hunger Games series. What is the name of the third? Mockingjay

SIMON CAN’T BE AROUND BABY MAMA’S SON
Simon Cowell’s baby mama Lauren Silverman already has a 7-year-old son, but it doesn’t sound like the X Factor judge will be bonding with him anytime soon. According to TMZ, a clause in Lauren’s divorce agreement from ex Andrew Silverman states that if Simon goes anywhere near her son Adam, Lauren will have to pay Andrew $50,000. And if it happens more than three times she’ll lose contact with her son until the court gets involved. The clause only lasts until January 2015. As for Andrew, he agreed not to trash Simon publicly and must make sure no one around him does either.
