Brody Jenner is still in with Kim Kardashian even though he opted to attend her ex Reggie Bush’s wedding and not his stepsister’s to Kanye West. Bush wed dancer Lilit Avagyan at the same place LeBron James and Savannah Brinson tied the knot, the Grand Del Mar hotel in San Diego, over the weekend.

It’s kinda ridiculous that everybody’s making such a big deal out of it.”
Tupac Shakur fans were dealt a blow: The Broadway musical Holler If Ya Hear Me, which uses songs from one of hip-hop’s greatest artists, is closing after less than two months.

Discounting had left the average ticket price at $38.44. It stars slam poet Saul Williams as a recently sprung inmate hoping to stay out of trouble.

She also posted pics of her and the American Idol host, 39, getting snuggly on their recent Eurotrip.

Tracy Morgan is getting better every day. “I’m OK,” he said outside his New Jersey home, where photogs were waiting to get a glimpse of the comedian who is recuperating from a deadly car accident. “I love you very much.
