Josh Brolin’s late-night antics

Josh Brolin may be a wildman, but he’s not one to hold a grudge. The Oscar nominee, 45, got into a drunken mini-brawl at an Irish pub in Santa Monica, Calif., Friday night, and TMZ shot footage to prove it. It all went down when the bar began to close, and Brolin didn’t want the party to end so starting punching randomly at a bouncer. After a few minutes you can see the fight disintegrate, then the two men hugging it out.

Brolin was arrested in January, also in Santa Monica, for public intoxication. But this time he ended up going home in a cab.

Marathon woman

Pamela Anderson is no doubt still feeling sore from going the distance at the NYC marathon Sunday. The actress shared her recovery on Twitter in an amusing photo after running the five-borough route with her brother Gerry — and helping to raise almost $76,000 for the J/P Haitian Relief Organization.

The former Baywatch star, 46, finished the race in five hours, 41 minutes, according to the marathon’s site, and summed up the grueling workout with the caption on the photograph (“Ouch!”), surrounded by ice bags and remote control on a bed.

Boy’s night out

The fun never stops in Justin Bieber’s world. The pop star was allegedly spotted at a brothel in Brazil for some pre-weekend fun, according to Page Six. The 19-year-old reportedly spent three hours in the popular brothel Centauros in Rio de Janeiro before sneaking out, covered by a sheet, along with two ladies. So the question is... when is he going to ask out Miley Cyrus? She’d drop Benji Madden in a hot second for him. Or maybe Bieber’s too wild, even for her.

Spiritual journey

Paula Abdul can add a new title to her resume: religious pilgrim. The former American Idol judge is on her first trip to Israel, connecting to her Jewish roots and planning on holding a belated Bat Mitzvah, the Jewish coming of age ceremony girls typically have at age 12 or 13. An official guest of Israel’s ministry of tourism, Abdul has been touring the country and visiting holy sites, museums and markets in Jerusalem. Abdul, 51, described the visit to the AP as “the most magnificent trip I’ve ever taken … magical and emotional.”

Better all the time

Austin Mahone is feeling well enough to reschedule his concert at the Fillmore Miami Beach. The date now stands at Feb. 24 (a Monday). The YouTube phenom had to cancel his show earlier this month because he ended up with a blood clot in his throat. The YouTube phenom told People he is almost back to his old self and slowly getting back to the gym. The doctor prescribed rest.

Expanding the brood

Drew Barrymore is still a new mom to 13-month-old Olive, but she’s preggers again. According to widespread reports, the actress turned wine entrepreneur and her art dealer husband Will Kopelman are going to be parents, Round II. “I want to be the Griswolds. I want the kids in the back rolling their eyes at mom and dad. I want Rusty and Audrey, theme parks and the whole nine,” Barrymore, 38, recently told Jay Leno.

Family issues

Jon Gosselin admitted to Oprah on Where Are They Now? that he and ex wife Kate may have failed their kids by putting them on TV. Though they have trust funds and got to travel the world, twins Cara and Mady, 13, and 9-year-old sextuplets Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah, and Joel are having development problems. “They have problems with their peers, and they have problems with talking to other people, and they have problems with wants and needs and manners and morals and what’s right and what’s wrong,” said the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star, who works as waiter.
