We've been waiting a while to find out who will be Oprah Winfrey's final guests on her last show on May 25, and now we know: It'll be Will Smith and wife Jada Pinkett Smith, says. The only caveat to this announcement is that there may be other guests as well. Also not specified is whether kids Jaden and Willow will appear with mom and dad. Since almost every move they make these days is to advance their kids' career, don't be surprised when Will announces Jaden will be starring in a remake of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, but this time about a kid from Beverly Hills who has to move to West Philadelphia.

Will Kutcher replace Sheen?

Twitter king Ashton Kutcher is giving his followers a clue that he may be joining Two and a Half Men - or he's punking them. Kutcher tweeted Wednesday, asking "What's the square root of 6.25?" The answer is 21/2. His online message came amid reports that he's nearing a deal to replace the fired Charlie Sheen on TV's top-rated comedy. Kutcher was negotiating with series producer Warner Bros., the Hollywood Reporter said Wednesday, citing unidentified sources. Earlier, Broadcasting & Cable reported Kutcher had emerged as a candidate. Warner Bros. declined comment, as did CBS. Kutcher's representatives did not respond to a request for comment. Kutcher gained fame on That 70s Show, then focused on film roles and producing, including the prank show Punk'd.

Leo and Bar have split ... again

All those solo pics of globetrotting Bar Refaeli said it before the New York Post did, but the model and Leonardo DiCaprio broke up last week after being together for something like six years, give or take a six-month break in 2009. Will two beautiful, rich and famous people ever find love again? "It was amicable, they're still friends and they are still talking," a source told the paper. "They just grew apart and went their separate ways. Neither were ready to settle down, and both have busy careers that have been taking them in different directions." Word is there was no third party involved, no one was cheating, no one was on drugs and no one hit anybody, making for a very bland breakup.

Big Boi buys daughter a record label

Oh, to be the daughter of Outkast's Big Boi, 16-year-old Jordan Patton, who got a new record label, Purple Kidz, for her big day! "My daughter just turned 16 years old, and you can see it on MTV's (My Super Sweet Sixteen), where they get cars, and things that depreciate and just don't mean nothing," 36-year-old Antwan Patton told Billboard about the gift. "I wanted to give my child something that she can grow and build and nurture. So I gave her her own label." Purple Kidz already has a first artist, signing Gabbie Rae, 12, whom you may recall from an episode of The Tyra Banks Show. Jordan and daddy are the only two partners on the marquee, which complements Big Boi's Purple Ribbon All-Stars label. Biggest upside: the chance of Andre Benjamin showing up to record. Oh, look, Uncle Andre 3000 is here!
