Tattoo be gone! Us Weekly reports that Melanie Griffith is erasing her romantic past — literally.

The actress, 56, split from her husband Antonio Banderas earlier this year and is now slowly removing a prominent tattoo of his name on her right bicep.

On Monday, she was spotted with a bandage across her arm, seemingly healing from another removal procedure.

NEW COUPLES?

Has Modern Family’s Sofía Vergara moved on from her ex-fiancé Nick Loeb with True Blood’s Joe Manganiello? Maybe. Page Six reports that the pair were seen having brunch Sunday afternoon at a popular New Orleans spot.

A photo popped up on Instagram of them together at a table, a plate of fried chicken between them but has since been deleted. Vergara is in New Orleans filming the comedy Don’t Mess With Texas.

Meanwhile, Zac Efron and Michelle Rodriguez were spotted getting cozy on a vacation in Sardinia, Italy, People.com reports. Efron, 26, and Rodriguez, 35, were photographed smooching on a boat. Efron split from Vanessa Hudgens in 2010 and has been single since; Rodriguez was last linked to supermodel Cara Delevingne.

Joining Menzel in the All-Star Week fun will be Aloe Blacc, who will perform Wake Me Up and Can You Do This before to the July 14 Home Run Derby.

BIG ON BURGERS

Shock rocker Alice Cooper loves White Castle sliders.

Cooper is such a fan of the little square hamburgers that he showed up at the company headquarters in Columbus on Monday to be inducted into the restaurant’s Craver Hall of Fame.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that the 66-year-old rock legend — real name is Vincent Furnier — told about 250 people gathered at the restaurant’s headquarters stories about his father sharing White Castle burgers with him when he was a kid.

HARRY’S BACK

Harry Potter is back – mysterious, married and going gray.

J.K. Rowling has given fans a glimpse of the grown-up boy wizard in a new story posted Tuesday on her Pottermore website, the first update since Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was published in 2007. A Rowling spokesman said there are “no plans” for a new Potter novel.

The 1,500-word story describes Harry, about to turn 34, attending the final of the Quidditch World Cup with his family and old friends Ron and Hermione. Harry now has “threads of silver” in his hair and a mysterious cut on his cheekbone, related to his “top secret” work as an evil-battling Auror.
