Drama expected at BET Awards

Here’s hoping Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj don’t kill each other when the two divas take the stage at the BET Awards Sunday.

If not, there is bound to be drama, anyway: Previously announced performers include such headline makers as Chris Brown, Miguel and R. Kelly.

Rapper-singer and Amanda Bynes target du jour Drake leads with 12 nominations. Chris Tucker will host; presenters include Paula Patton, LaLa Anthony and Gabrielle Union, so there may be a Dwyane Wade sighting as well.

Name calling

Alec Baldwin appears to have deleted his Twitter account at @ABFalecbaldwin after threatening to eff up a Daily Mail reporter. George Stark ratted out Bald-win’s wife who looked to be Tweeting during James Gandolfini’s funeral, which the couple was attending. One of the more publishable names the actor called Stark was a “toxic little queen.” Hilaria Bald-win copped to tweeting but not during the service. “When someone tweets something at a certain time, and you retweet it later, it posts the TIME the first person tweeted,” she explained.

Still together

Kris Jenner is shooting down reports that she is separated from Bruce Jenner, even though they live in different homes. The reality mom told Access Hollywood the family’s mansion was a little “congested,” possibly due to the rumor that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West had moved in with their premature baby.

Red-hot lover

Back before Tom Cruise was a Scientologist, he dated Cher, the singing/acting legend told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live. “It was pretty hot and heavy for a little minute,” she said, rating his abilities in the “top five.”

Love blossoms

How cute. A source confirms to UsWeekly that Courteney Cox is indeed dating her Cougar Town co-star, Brian Van Holt, 43. The 49-year-old former Friends star is reportedly ready to go public with her romance, going strong for about six months, the source blabbed. Holt plays her character’s ex-husband on the TNT show.
