Live one

Miley Cyrus’ twerky antics at the VMAs cost her a spread in Vogue. Editor Anna Wintour apparently wanted to feature the singer on the cover of the December issue but found her moves with Robin Thicke “distasteful,” an insider told UK’s Daily Mail.

At least Saturday Night Live still cares. Miley is set to take over hosting/ performing duties Oct. 5. It’ll be interesting to see if she pulls out her naughty fan finger again. We expect no less. Her latest video, for Wrecking Ballad, shows the pop tart naked, swinging on a wrecking ball, licking a sledgehammer.

New gig

One person Wintour has no problem with is Dwyane Wade. The basketball star announced on Twitter that he’s partnering with Chicago-based The Tie Bar on an affordable men’s accessories line, launching at TheTieBar.com in November. According to GQ, The Gentleman by Dwyane Wade capsule collection will include bowties, neckties, pocket squares and more.

Health woes

Howard Stern’s longtime sidekick Robin Quivers announced that’s she’s cancer free after a secret battle with the disease for more than a year. Some fans wondered why Quivers had been co-hosting their weekday SiriusXM radio program, The Howard Stern Show, from home. Quivers, 61, revealed a tumor was found in her endometrium (the lining of the uterus).

Bromance or more?

Andy Cohen (who Mama Elsa once predicted would never find love) is serious with hockey player Sean Avery, reports LaineyGossip.com. Insiders tell the site the two have been together awhile, but that the ex-New York Ranger is not totally out of the closet. He used to date actress Elisha Cuthbert. In 2011, Cohen joked to the two were “brothers from another mother.”

War time

World War ZZ? Brad Pitt told Variety there probably will be a sequel to the zombie apocalypse moneymaker.
