Reese was arrested Friday for disorderly conduct after she mouthed off to a cop while her husband Jim Toth was being arrested for DUI. She asked the officer if he knew who she was and then added, “You're about to find out who I am ... You are going to be on national news." On Sunday she apologized for the arrest admitting she had too much to drink and that she was “embarrassed” by her actions.

BAY DENIES ARMAGEDDON APOLOGY
Director Michael Bay, whose new movie Pain & Gain opens Friday, is denying that he apologized for his blockbuster Armageddon. Bay reportedly told the Miami Herald, “I will apologize for Armageddon, because we had to do the whole movie in 16 weeks. It was a massive undertaking. That was not fair to the movie. I would redo the entire third act if I could." But yesterday Bay took to his website to argue that his words were taken out of context. “I'm not in the slightest going to apologize for the third movie in my movie career, a film called Armageddon,” explained Bay. “What I clearly said to the reporter, is I wish I had more time to edit the film, specifically the third act.” Added Bay, “I'm proud of the movie. Enough said.” [See Spotlight On for more.]
SURGERY FORCES THE ROCK TO MISS PREMIERE
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was absent from Monday’s Pain & Gain premiere in Miami because he had to undergo emergency hernia surgery. Over the weekend, the wrestler revealed that he suffered an abdominal injury that required him to go under the knife. "Saw my Dr who had to push my intestines back thru the tear in my abdomen. Kinda romantic," he tweeted. "Surgery is next week. #BringItOn." Johnson, 40, sustained the injury to his abdomen during his April 7th WrestleMania 29 match against Jon Cena, which Johnson lost. Pain & Gain opens Friday.
KRIS JENNER TO BLAME FOR KHLOE’S FIRING
While reports claimed that Khloe Kardashian wasn’t asked back to X Factor because she didn’t get along with Mario Lopez, Radaronline reports it was actually Khloe’s mother Kris Jenner who had issues with Mario. “Everyone thinks that Mario hated working with Khloe,” a source told Radar. “But he was nothing but encouraging and supportive (to Khloe). It was her mother Kris who was the problem.” The source claims Kris would complain to producers that Mario was “pushy and insensitive” and that he and Khloe didn’t have any chemistry. She even had the nerve to suggest Mario be replaced by one of the other Kardashian sisters. Unfortunately her complaints seem to backfire on Kris. Said the insider, “Well, the producers agreed with the no chemistry argument, but also that Khloe was in over her head – and that’s why she’s gone.” Meanwhile, Kris has started raiding her daughter’s wardrobe. The 57-year-old attended an E! event in New York Monday wearing a red Valentino mini-dress that her daughter Kim Kardashian wore just 11 months earlier. Kris was also sporting an iPhone case that read “Queen of F***ing Everything.”
Q-Kris Jenner is the mother of how many kids? 6 [Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, Rob, Kylie and Kendall]
SHARON DISCUSSES MARITAL PROBLEMS
Sharon Osbourne has finally commented about rumors her marriage to Ozzy Osbourne is in trouble. Earlier this month, Ozzy admitted he had fallen off the wagon, but insisted he was now sober, and was doing everything he could to improve his relationship with his wife. Yesterday on The Talk, Sharon opened up about Ozzy’s struggles. "He said he's been using alcohol and prescription drugs for the last year and a half," she said. "And that he's been an a–– and he's been in a very dark place. That's true. That's very true." But reiterating what Ozzy said, Sharon insists they’re 30-year marriage is not over. "We're not getting divorced,” she said. “However, am I happy? No. Am I upset? Yes I am. I'm devastated right now." As for Ozzy’s addiction, Sharon explained, “It's a disease that not only hurts the person that has the disease but it hurts the family. It hurts people who love you. We're dealing with it. We've dealt with worse. We're dealing with it and this too shall pass." And if he doesn’t stay clean, Sharon joked, "my husband will be taken to hospital to get my foot removed from his ass."
BUCKWILD SEX TAPE TO BE DESTROYED
Guess we’re never going to see the Buckwild sex tape. A judge in West Virginia Monday ordered Shae Bradley and Jesse J’s homemade sex tape be destroyed. Shae went to court to get a permanent injunction stopping Jesse from selling the tape, and the judge went one step further, ordering Jesse to destroy it. According to reports, the judge was likely swayed to Shae’s side when Jesse admitted in court he was just shopping the tape to “ruin (Shae’s) life.” In the end, Jesse claimed he had already burned the tape when he found out Shae was taking him to court.
LONGORIA DENIES DATING READY FOR LOVE STAR
Eva Longoria has denied rumors she’s dating Ready For Love bachelor Ernesto Arguello. Earlier this week, Eva tweeted “Sorry guys, still not dating @ernestoarguello Who are these 'sources'?" But regardless of whether anything romantic is going on, TMZ reports that Ernesto has been crashing at Eva’s home lately, and they were even spotted out together in L.A., hitting Chateau Marmont Sunday night and Soho House on Monday. What’s even odder, TMZ reports that another Ready For Love bachelor, Tim Lopez, has also moved into Eva’s pad. Maybe she feels bad about casting them in such a stinker of a show.
Q-What was the name of Eva Longoria’s character on Desperate Housewives? Gabrielle Solis
SNOOP SAYS MILEY/LIAM ROMANCE OVER
If you believe Snoop Lion (a.k.a. Snoop Dogg) Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are definitely over. Snoop collaborated with Miley on a tune called “Ashtrays and Heartbreaks,” which he says is about “change, turnaround, and you know, just going through things.” When asked about what specific things he was talking about, Snoop told the Huffington Post, “I can’t speak for her, you know what I’m saying, but I know that she has a relationship that no longer exists. I know she’s probably in a transformation change with her life, her music [and] her career.”
Q-What is the name of Snoop’s debut solo album, which was released in 1993? Doggystyle
MAD MEN MISTAKES
Sounds like Mad Men needs to find a new fact checker. In Sunday’s episode, Christina Hendricks’ character Joan Harris tells her visiting friend she made reservations for dinner at Le Cirque, but that would have been impossible. As the New York Post points out, this season is set in 1968, and the famed New York City restaurant didn’t open until 1974. This isn’t the first time the AMC drama has made such continuity errors. An early screener of last season’s premiere, set in 1966, originally featured the Dusty Springfield song “The Look of Love,” but that tune wasn’t released until 1967, forcing creator Matthew Weiner to change the song before it aired. In another episode, Elisabeth Moss’ character Peggy goes to the doctor to go on the pill, and the wall calendar read March, 1960, but the birth control pill wasn’t approved by the FDA until May of that year.
Q-Who is the father of Joan Harris’ son? Roger Sterling (John Slattery)
AFFLECK JOINING ‘LIVE BELOW THE LINE’ CAMPAIGN

Will you?” Sophia Bush and Josh Groban are also taking part in the challenge, which runs from April 29th to May 3rd.
LEO RESPONSIBLE FOR GWYNETH GIVING UP RED MEAT
Gwyneth Paltrow credits Leonardo DiCaprio with getting her to rethink eating red meat back in the early 90s. "He was vegetarian and he'd talk about how dirty meat is and how bad factory farming is,” Paltrow tells The Observer. “I haven't eaten red meat in 20 years, and although Leo's not totally responsible, he definitely planted a seed.” Paltrow is known for her picky diet, and has said in the past that she tries to keep her kids away from processed foods like Oreos and such, but she does admit, “I’m a realist and I have kids and I love Oreos too, so honestly I’m not rigid at all.”
GWYNETH CALLED OUT FOR SELLING BIKINIS TO TODDLERS
Meanwhile, Gwyneth Paltrow has come under fire for selling designer bikinis for children on her Goop website. The swimsuits are part of a collection by designer Melissa Odabash, and they’re priced at $45 each. “We remain very opposed to the sexualization of children and of childhood,” a rep for the child safety charity Kidscape told The Mail. “The dangers have been discussed at length, so it is a great pity that such trends continue and that they carry celebrity endorsement." A rep for the Iron Man 3 star called the controversy “absurd,” adding, “‘Two-piece bathing suits have been worn by young girls for decades.”
Q-Paltrow played an overweight girl dating Jack Black in what 2001 comedy? Shallow Hal

Chaz Bono is looking a lot different these days. The 44-year-old former Dancing with the Stars contestant tells People that he’s lost 60 pounds, and “is still losing weight.” “I’ve just changed the way I eat,” he said. “Diets don’t work. You just have to change what you eat and I have.” And it sounds like Dancing with the Stars helped in his weight loss as well. “I still enjoy dancing,” he says. “I still take classes.” He has also begun martial arts training as part of his activity regimen.

Rowe would reportedly love to have a relationship with Prince, but she’s willing to wait and hope it develops naturally when he’s ready.
