Al Roker, meanwhile, pitied the fool who made fun of his rather impressive Mr. T.
It's Halloween, so that means one thing: Famous exhibitionists who like to dress up in public are dressing up in public. That means there's no shortage of men dressing as women, women dressing as men, people pretending to be robots, robots made out of pumpkins, cats dressed as other animals and celebrities openly mocking each other but calling it an homage. Here are just a few of the more creative efforts making their way across the Internetblogs. Now, onward to Thanksgiving!Full Story
It's been weeks, but we can all still handle one more twerking video, right? Especially when it's narrated by the king of the nature documentaries. This is so accurate, you won't believe it's not the original audio. Imagine what one with Kimye would sound like. Full Story
That's going to look great at future PTA meetings!
Rihanna has some new ink to show off, covering up that Maori-style tattoo on her right hand with a henna-style tattoo. Wait, didn't she have that first one put on traditionally in New Zealand, with a hammer and chisel dipped in ink? You'd think she'd keep it just for the story.
Bang Bang McCurdy and Cally-Jo of Bang Bang NYC tattoo parlor shared the whole story with E!, telling them "We drew on her hand from 7 p.m. to midnight. ... The inspiration was henna art; We wanted something really decorative, feminine and sexy. We thought that was the closest in style where we could shift and make it look decorative."Full Story
Here she is the first week of October. We'll have to find a more recent photo to really ascertain if this is the truth or not.
All you die-hard Scandal fans have a new development to freak out about, because your favorite crisis manager, Kerry Washington, is pregnant. No, not with the president's baby, but with her husband's. That would be a real story though, wouldn't it?
The 36-year-old and her NFL spouse Nnamdi Asomugha, 31, are expecting the child in the spring. “Kerry and Nnamdi are ecstatic,” a source tells People. Another source (or maybe the same one, who knows) told Us Weekly she's about four months along. She and Asomugha married privately on June 24.Full Story
L.A. being L.A., Chris will probably end up with just one more chance.
We didn't follow up with Chris Brown's camp after his assault charge in D.C. was reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor Monday, but we wish we had: Breezy went and checked into a rehab center for anger management on Tuesday, his people announced late that night (late for Florida, anyway). Boy, talk about closing the barn door after the horse has bolted.
"Chris Brown has elected to enter a rehab facility," the singer's people told E! in a statement. "His goal is to gain focus and insight into his past and recent behavior, enabling him to continue the pursuit of his life and his career from a healthier vantage point."Full Story
Shannon in 2008, before the tough times set in.
Former Playboy Playmate Colleen Shannon isn't exactly a Juice*-level celebrity, but since she was arrested for attempting to smuggle an illegal immigrant into the U.S. and now has to got to prison for four months, we're all ears. Even our sterling standards can be bent, y'know.
Shannon, the centerfold for the magazine's 50th anniversary edition in 2004, was charged in August 2012 with helping her boyfriend Robert Skojo sneak in from Canada through the Akwesasne Mohawk Indian Reservation, the Syracuse Post-Standard reported. Unfortunately, Skojo had a record of drug charges and getting caught with prostitutes in Canada, so he would not have been allowed to cross into the States. Kind of makes you wonder how they met.Full Story
He already got three elephants; What more does he want?

It's been more than a decade since Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise got divorced, so of course Vanity Fair got her to talk all about it. The verdict: She's much happier with Keith Urban, although that may not be Tom's fault.
“I was so young. And you know, with no disrespect to what I had with Tom, I’ve met my great love now. And I really did not know if that was going to happen," Kidman told the magazine. "I wanted it, but I didn’t want it for a while, because I didn’t want to jump from one relationship to another. I had a lot of time alone, which was really, really good, because I was a child, really, when I got married. And I needed to grow up.”Full Story
Goodbye, nick, Joe and Kevin. Don't rush back into the studio or anything.
Not that anyone really has a whole lot invested in them anymore, but the Jonas Brothers have announced to People that the break they took from touring is going to be permanent. And you were really hoping they'd sing Lovebug one more time.
Just to make sure everyone gets their word in, Kevin told the mag, "It's over for now." That was followed up with Nick saying, "It's really hard to say 'forever.' We're closing a chapter, for sure."So at least you have hope for a reunion, but they all agreed this was best. "It was a unanimous decision," Joe added. Full Story
Always the good role model.
Chris Brown isn't the only one getting out of trouble in court this week. Rapper 50 Cent struck a deal in his domestic violence case, kicking the main charge and copping a plea for misdemeanor vandalism. That's right, no more threat of jail for Fiddy!
Curtis Jackson was initially ordered to stay away from Daphne Joy, the mother of his second child, and had to turn in his firearms after a fight in June. He allegedly kicked Joy and did $7,100 in damage to her property, resulting in a domestic abuse charge and four counts of vandalism. TMZ said the deal he struck led to his no contest plea to only one count Monday, resulting in a sentence of three years probation and 30 days of community service. Full Story
Wait, they're still making X-Men movies? Of course they are, because they have so many stories about Wolverine to focus on. Can't we just get one movie about Cyclops? Storm? Even Kitty Pryde would be okay. Anything but more Wolverine. Full Story

Here's Aduba in a promotional still as Crazy Eyes.
Country singer and Rock of Ages actress Julianne Hough riled up the Interwebs over the weekend by attending a Halloween party with a group playing characters from Orange Is The New Black. It's not so much the group's idea, but the one Hough chose.
She was portraying Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren from the show, played by Uzo Aduba, who is black. As you already know, Hough is not. And Twitter didn't like that she put a ton of bronzer on to simulate being a black character. Besides a ton of complaints about photos online, the NAACP had a problem with it, too.Full Story
