DATES SET FOR STEWART'S LEAVE

We all knew John Oliver was going to guest host The Daily Show in Jon Stewart's absence this summer, but now we know when to potentially start watching Friends reruns (more than usual, anyway). Oliver's stint will begin June 10, Comedy Central reports. While Stewart is off making the decidedly unfunny Rosewater, Oliver will take the anchor desk while also hosting the fourth season of John Oliver's New York Stand-Up Show, notes Entertainment Weekly. Stewart will be back Sept. 3. "Don't worry, it's still going to be everything that you love about The Daily Show, just without the thing that you love the most about it," Oliver said in a press release. Oh, come on, anyone who can almost injure a camel on assignment in Wisconsin is worth at least a four-day trial period.

Rihanna might have bought Brown a car

We don't know how much stock to put into this one, but the U.K.'s Sun is claiming that far from being split up again, Rihanna just bought Chris Brown a car worth more than $1 million for his 24th birthday on Sunday. "Rihanna has spent more than a million dollars on his main gift - a custom-made car," a source told the Sun. That "custom-made car" is reportedly a 2009 Mercedes-Benz SLR Stirling Moss, which had a limited edition run of only 75 examples, the paper said.

Carey, Cannon renew vows at Disneyland

Tuesday was April 30, so Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon renewed their wedding vows, like they do every year. This time the couple celebrated the big fifth year by shutting down Disneyland and letting kids Moroccan and Monroe serve in the wedding party. Entertainment Tonight says Cinderella's Major Domo was the MC for the 250-guest reception, which Cannon DJ'd. There were 15,000 flowers brought in from South Africa, the Netherlands and France, and attractions were open for guests. It was also the kids' second birthday. They got their own party with 150 guests and foks dressed up as Disney characters.
