Halle Berry is ready to bring out the big guns in her custody battle. TMZ reports that she fired her long-time lawyer and hired Stephen Kolodny. Berry is rumored to be interested in moving to France, and it will most likely take some legal finagling to convince a family law judge that her daughter would be better off several thousand miles away from her father. Kolodny is used to nasty legal battles as he represented Mel Gibson in his divorce from Oksana Grigorieva.
The Biebs isn't a baby anymore. Justin Bieber, who turns 18 today, made a birthday appearance on Ellen and was presented with a pretty major gift. The dumbfounded singer received a Fisker Karma from his manager, Scooter Braun. Not to be outdone, Ellen Degeneres gave the singer a sunshade adorned with an image of her and Biebs' faces, as well as an Ellen bobblehead.
Dane Cook, Cary Elwes, and David Arquette are all apparently interested in small-screen work. All three have signed on for various network TV pilots. As long as the shows are better than NBC's Whitney, we'll be happy.
The Duchess of Cambridge is keeping herself busy while her Duke is deployed. Kate used-to-be-Middleton made a visit to the Royal School of Needlework this week to thank some of the embroiderers who worked on her wedding gown. People reports that the staff, graduates, and students used new needles every three hours and washed their hands every 30 minutes while working on the gown designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. Sounds like the visit might have been enough to convince the Duchess to never take up needlepoint.
Will Adele outrun Prince? The British singer now has the longest running number one album on the Billboard 200 since 1984's Purple Rain soundtrack. Now in its 22nd week (Prince had a 24-week run), "21" has sold more than 7.6 million copies in the US alone.
Cee Lo Green will release his memoirs next year. The singer-songwriter-Voice judge describes the book as "supernatural," "surreal," and "extraordinary." If nothing else, it is sure to be a must-read for any aspiring lady killers out there.
