LAPD TO STOP REPORTING SWATTING PRANKS TO THE MEDIA: The Los Angeles Police Department has decided to stop making public announcements every time a celebrity swatting incident occurs.

He told the website, “I would love to work with on-screen wife Suzanne Somers again. The Step By Step cast was so wonderful to be with. They were my family and I think a little two-hour special about where these people are — not a documentary, but actually doing a show — seeing where they all come to over the years. It would be so fun to play that goofy Frank Lambert character again, aging another 25 years.”
Celebrities At Coachella
The 14th annual Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is underway and as thousands of music lovers invade Indio, California for two weekends of festivities, some of Hollywood’s biggest names are joining in on the fun. Everyone from Victoria’s Secret models to teen actors made the pilgrimage to the first two days of the festival over the weekend (April 12th – April 14th.)
Despite performances from big names like The Lumineers and Phoenix, celebrity attendees like Lindsay Lohan, Rob Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have been getting a lot of the attention.
- Kristen was reportedly celebrating her 23rd birthday by checking out some of the festival’s offerings whill getting cozy with Rob.
- Lindsay took in the festival with her 16-year-old brother Cody and 19-year-old sister Ali after insisting to friends that she planned to stay sober for the weekend.
- Other high-profile guests included Paris and Nicky Hilton, Francesca and Clint Eastwood, Danny DeVito and Melanie Griffith, Carrie Diaries star AnnaSophia Robb, and even Leonardo DiCaprio.
MTV Movie Awards
Although it was an evening dedicated to celebrating the year’s most entertaining films, Sunday’s (April 14th) MTV Movie Awards acted more as a showcase for the comedic talents of host Rebel Wilson. Rebel’s one-liners throughout the evening kept the night rolling on with plenty of laughs and OMG moments.
As far as the awards go, the big winner of the evening was Marvel’s The Avengers. The Avengers took home three awards including Best Villain, Best Fight, and the coveted Movie of the Year. Samuel L. Jackson took the stage not only for those awards but to accept the Shocking Moment award alongside Jamie Foxx for Django Unchained.
Fans also showed a lot of love for Silver Linings Playbook by voting for Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence for Male Performance, Female Performance, and Best Kiss. Unfortunately Jennifer was not at the show.
However, the part of the evening viewers seemed most eager for came at the end with the premiere of the teaser trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire introduced by Liam Hemsworth.
- Rebel’s opening with James Franco which featured some hilarious quotes including:
“I’m on a sit-about…it’s kind of like a walk-about but there’s no cardio.”
“The only thing I’ve hosted was this parasitic worm…I’m still not sure which hole it came out of.”
- Rebel taking a page out of the Billy Crystal book of hosting by editing herself into a few of the year’s biggest movies including Les Miserables, Life of Pi, and Magic Mike.
- Emma Watson winning the trailblazer award. Her speech about growing up in front of the camera was sweet and endearing — completely reaffirming why everyone loves her.
- Snoop Dogg and Ke$ha smoking a blunt on stage while presenting Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. For some reason those two didn’t seem like a total mismatch.
- Rebel’s koala cam bit which ran a little long but showing that there was large selection of booze inside of Quvenzhane Wallis’ kitty purse.
