George Clooney and Stacy Keibler: It’s over


In news that comes as a surprise to no one, George Clooney is single again. The star and girlfriend Stacy Keibler have split, according to People.com.

The couple, who have been together two years, want different things in life, a source told People.

“Stacy called it quits. She wants to have children and a family someday. She knows where George stands on that. They talked and they quietly stopped being a couple several weeks ago.”

The source also says Clooney, 52, and Keibler, 33, are on good terms: “They talk every day. They were friends before they started dating and they’ll be friends after.”

Prison bound

Lauryn Hill reported to federal prison in Connecticut to begin a three-month sentence for tax evasion, TMZ reports.

The former Fugees singer, 38, was booked into the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, a minimum security facility, on Monday morning.

Custody battle

Sounds like a CW show minus the supernatural element: Vampire Diaries star Zach Roerig is fighting for custody of his 2-year-old daughter, whose mother is incarcerated, TMZ reports.

In papers filed in a Georgia court in June, Roerig, 28, seeks full custody of the child, whose name has not been revealed. Roerig made the new request because the mother, Alanna Turner, was sentenced to a federal prison after pleading guilty to “various crimes” and is already behind bars, according to TMZ.

Oh, Mr. Darcy

It’s Colin Firth, but not as we know him. He’s 12 feet (3.7 meters) tall and made of fiberglass.

A statue of brooding Mr. Darcy, the character played by Firth in Pride and Prejudice, has been installed in London’s Serpentine lake. The figure shows Darcy emerging from the water in a soaked shirt, recreating a scene from the 1995 television adaptation of Jane Austen’s novel.

The scene helped turn Firth, who won an Oscar for The King’s Speech, into a sex symbol and is regularly voted among Britain’s most memorable TV moments.

Kris gets help

Not sure if this makes Kris Jenner’s new talk show any more palatable, but Joan Rivers and Sean “Diddy Combs” will be among the co-hosts .

Jenner will be paired with a different co-host for each episode of the daytime show, titled Kris, the producer said. Co-hosts include Kathie Lee Gifford, Morris Chestnut, NeNe Leakes, Tom Bergeron and Ryan Seacrest, who produces Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Khloe Kardashian-Odom, one of Jenner’s daughters, also will be a co-host.

Speaking of family: Jenner hinted to Today host Matt Lauer that granddaughter North West (child of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West) might make her debut on the show.

Royal tweets

Twitter just got a bit more royal: Britain’s Prince Andrew has joined the micro-blogging service as @TheDukeOfYork.

Within hours of opening the account Monday, Andrew had more than 10,000 followers but — and this will shock all Twitter users except Alec Baldwin — also had received several abusive comments.
