Nicki Minaj storms off


Another PR stunt? Or Nicki Minaj may be truly fed up with being a judge on American Idol.

On Wednesday night’s auditions show, Minaj left the set after getting annoyed with her fellow panelists Keith Urban, Mariah Carey and Randy Jackson because she felt they were picking apart contestant Summer Cunningham (who got OK’ed for Hollywood).

Summer, after singing Lean on Me, told the stars she didn’t know whether she was a country singer or not. Then a full-on debate began, while Minaj looked on, bored. When it was her turn to speak, the pink-haired diva let her feelings known, then bailed. In her wake, Carey said cattily: “That was going to be my move the next time she ragged on me.”

Troubled times

Sofia Vergara and Nick Loeb are trying their hardest to make it down the aisle eventually. But it’s not looking so good for the couple. The new issue of Star blabs that the Modern Family star and her entrepreneur fiancé have entered counseling in Los Angeles.

Ouch. Bethenny Frankel’s estranged husband Jason Hoppy has filed “aggressive” divorce papers of his own, UsWeekly reports. Hoppy is asking for everything the reality star is asking for, and then some: child support, medical, life and dental insurance; primary residence of their $5 million home; and primary custody of their daughter.

Teen nightmare

Teen Mom 2’s Jenelle Evans is taking her rancor public with new husband Courtland Rogers. The pair had an online war via Twitter. She said he left town after she suffered signs of a miscarriage and wants a divorce “ASAP.” It is unclear if the mother of one, 21, actually miscarried, but she was rushed to the hospital with Rogers nowhere in sight. Maybe that was a good thing since E! News reports the MTV star filed four accounts of assault on a female with an unborn child at a North Carolina courthouse Wednesday. Rogers denies ever hitting her.

Pregnant pauses

Michael Bublé is going to be popping the bubbly soon. The singer, 37, and his wife, Argentine actress Luisana Lopilato, 25, announced they are expecting. And Chely Wright is doubling her pleasure. The country singer, 42, is expecting twins with her wife Lauren Blitzer, they said on the YouTube show Gwissues.

Health monitor

Former L Word star Lauren Bedford Russell finds Jack Osbourne to be an inspiration. The actress was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in July after losing partial vision in one eye. Russell, 31, told RadarOnline that she figured out she had the condition after reading up on what Osbourne had experienced. She is trying to raise awareness as well.
