Justin Bieber embarrassed himself after a visit Friday to the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam. On the Facebook page of the museum, dedicated to the young Holocaust victim, somebody wrote a post about the pop star’s visit, explaining that Bieber and a group of friends and guards stayed for over an hour. As he left, he reportedly wrote a note in the museum’s guest book - 'Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber.'" Needless to say the note did not sit well with some, with one Facebook poster writing, "Anne Frank a belieber? That is by far one of the most self-serving things I've ever read, like ever." A source close to Justin later told TMZ that during his hour visit, he learned that Frank was into pop culture, which is why he made the “Belieber” comment.

Matt Damon and wife Luciana renewed their wedding vows in St. Lucia over the weekend. More than seven years after they wed in a civil ceremony at New York’s City Hall, the couple said “I Do” again on Saturday in front of 50 guests, including Damon’s good buddy Ben Affleck and his wife Jennifer Garner, Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Ocean’s Eleven’s Don Cheadle. Damon reportedly spent $1 million renting out the entire Sugar Beach Resort for the weekend event. According to Us Weekly, Damon wore a tan colored suit and flip-flops to the sunset ceremony, with Luciana dressed in a cream colored gown. The pair’s daughters, Isabella 6, Gia, 4, Stella, 2 and Alexia, Luciana’s daughter from a previous marriage, wore dresses similar in color to their mom. Following the 15-minute ceremony, all the guests headed down to the beach for a cocktail reception.

A mandatory divorce settlement conference was held in California Friday in connection with Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries’ divorce case but apparently only one of them knew what the word mandatory meant. While Kim showed up in the Los Angeles courtroom, Kris was a no-show, which left the judge in the case furious. Lawyers for Kris said the NBA star was detained in New York, but the judge didn’t care for the excuse and set a sanction hearing, which means Kris could be fined for his absence. Both sides failed to reach a settlement, which means their trial will begin as scheduled on May 6th. Meanwhile, Kim certainly made her presence known. The 32-year-old, who is expecting her first child with Kanye West later this year, was escorted out of the courthouse by ten uniformed Los Angeles County sheriffs.

It sounds like there may be trouble in paradise for Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne. The couple, who’ve been married for more than three decades, may be separated, a source tells The Sun. “They are living at different addresses and are not spending any time together. They fight a lot,” said the insider. Ozzy and Sharon reportedly haven’t seen each other for three weeks, with Sharon living at the Beverly Hills hotel, and Ozzy at their home two miles away. The couple’s son Jack took to Twitter to deny the report, writing, “It’s all bull**t. Last time I check a lot of British news papers weren’t amazing sources of accurate information. Moving on.”

Former President George W. Bush is a grandpa.

PORTER ACCUSER A FRAUD

The woman accusing P. Diddy’s baby mama Kim Porter of exposing her kids to drugs is a fraudster who is suing to get back at Kim for firing her. Sources close to Kim say former nanny Dawn Drago is a convicted shoplifter who lied about her criminal history on her employment application. She’s said to be extremely bitter about her firing, which happened because she falsified time sheets. Kim insists Drago’s drug accusations are false and the lawsuit is just payback. When asked about the shoplifting conviction, lawyers for Drago told TMZ it was irrelevant “because she was not working at a shop.” Yeah, doesn’t make sense to us either.

Q-The P.Diddy tune “I’ll Be Missing You” sampled what Police tune? “Every Breath You Take”

BYNES TAKES AIM AT PEREZ HILTON

Amanda Bynes is definitely not a fan of Perez Hilton. After countless posts about her recent bizarre behavior, the What I Like About You star took to Twitter to fight back against the blogger. “@PerezHilton I’m so sick of u saying ur sincerely worried about me. At least pick a photo from my twitter if u won’t stop talking about me,” she wrote. She then added, “@PerezHilton you are the scum of the earth!!! Pick better photos f***er.”

GLEE CRITICIZED FOR SCHOOL SHOOTING EPISODE

Fox’s Glee is receiving some serious criticism regarding last week’s episode, which involved a shooting at McKinley High. While no one was hurt, the subject matter didn’t sit well with some people, especially family members of the victims of Connecticut’s Sandy Hook tragedy. “It was so realistic that I couldn’t believe it,” Sandy Hook parent Tracy Muzzio told NBC Connecticut. “This close to the tragedy without any warning, I believe was inconsiderate.” Fellow parent Andrew Paley said he didn’t watch the episode, but was still upset by it. “We’re going through a healing phase right now and without giving us any kind of warning, it’s going to open up wounds we’re trying to close right now,” he said. [There were reports that prior to the airing, local superintendent of schools Janet Robinson issued an e-mail to parents warning them of the show’s content.] While some where upset by the storyline, others were offended that the show’s one character with Down Syndrome, Becky, played by Lauren Potter, was the actual shooter.

LOWE RELATIONSHIP ON THE ROCKS

Sounds like another Bachelor romance may be over soon. Sources tell Life & Style that Sean Lowe and Catherine Guidici’s relationship is already in trouble because it has “taken a backseat” to Sean’s new Hollywood life. Insiders add that competing on Dancing with the Stars has given Sean a “huge ego,” and he has become obsessed with fame and money. He’s also become a raging diva. 'When he goes to the (Dancing with the Stars) after-parties, he’s always an hour late and brings the biggest entourage with him– like eight people,” says a source. “No one else does that.”

GLANVILLE CAN’T FIND NEW HOME

Brandi Glanville may soon be homeless. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star decided to leave her current home after being hit with a rent hike, and having a few fans turn up at her place. Now she has less than a month to move out, but she’s struggling to find a new pad. Brandi says she wants to stay in the 90210 zip code, but every place she’s liked she “can’t afford.” In addition, she says “it’s hard because a lot of the houses I like don’t allow filming.” Brandi is hoping to find a place with more room for her two sons to play, as well as a pool so they “can swim off all of their energy.” Meanwhile, Brandi posted a picture last week that showed the damage a laser treatment did to her face. As for why she had the treatment, Brandi explained, “Doctor said he could get rid of my melasma. It was [too] hard for my skin. Still healing, it’s been depressing #skinobsessed.”

JANE SEYMOUR KICKS HUBBY OUT

Jane Seymour and husband James Keach announced Friday that their 20-year marriage is over. “Jane Seymour and James Keach confirm that they are separated and have been for several months," they said in a statement to Us Weekly. "At this time they are negotiating the terms of their divorce." Radaronline claims the 67-year-old Seymour kicked her hubby  out of the house after she suspected he had been cheating. “Jane and James have been having problems for years now, but she’s finally had it with his antics and kicked him out of the house a few weeks ago,” says a source.   Insiders say Jane put up with James’ wandering eye for years, but finally threw in the towel after hearing he had become close to a woman that she knew. Seymour and Keach, 65, have two sons, twins John and Kristopher, 17.

Arrested Development star Portia de Rossi opens up about her relationship with Ellen DeGeneres in the pages of this month’s Out Magazine. “We’ve settled into happily married life,” she says. “We really support each other in whatever we’re doing and we’re incredibly happy, which is why you don’t see us in the press so much. There’s no drama to report.” The couple has filled their home with plenty of animals, but Portia says they have no plans to fill it with any kids. “There comes some pressure in your mid-30s, and you think, Am I going to have kids so I don’t miss out on something that other people really seem to love? Or is it that I really genuinely want to do this with my whole heart?,” she explained. “I didn’t feel that my response was ‘yes’ to the latter. You have to really want to have kids, and neither of us did. So it’s just going to be me and Ellen and no babies — but we’re the best of friends and married life is blissful, it really is. I’ve never been happier than I am right now.”

Q-What is the name of Portia’s character on Arrested Development? Lindsay Bluth Fünke

JUDD RESPONDS TO McCONNELL TAPE

Ashley Judd has finally commented about the audio that surfaced last week of a private meeting between Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell and his aides, in which they talk about the possibility of Judd running for McConnell’s Kentucky seat. In the tape, someone is heard discussing Judd’s mental state, and it sounds like the actress is not surprised they’d stoop to such tactics. “This is yet another example of the politics of personal destruction that embody Mitch McConnell and are pervasive in Washington, D.C," a rep for actress told Us Weekly. "We expected nothing less from Mitch McConnell and his camp than to take a personal struggle such as depression, which many Americans cope with on a daily basis, and turn it into a laughing matter. Every day it becomes clearer how much we need change in Washington from this kind of rhetoric and actions."

Q-In 2011, Judd released a memoir. What was its title? All That Is Bitter and Sweet
