Charlize, Sean split

And here we thought this one would last (OK, not really): Charlize Theron and fiancé Sean Penn have split, sources told Us Weekly.

Did somebody get dumped? Maybe. One source told Us that Theron, 39, was the one to break things off with her fellow Oscar winner, 54. The couple had known each other for decades before they became involved romantically. Us reported that they got engaged last December.

Cancer news

Cheech and Chong’s Tommy Chong has been diagnosed with rectal cancer.

The actor, who made it to the semifinals on last season’s Dancing With the Stars, tweeted the news himself on Thursday.

“I’m in treatment now,” he told Us Weekly, and added that he’s smoking marijuana now more than ever. “Either I get healed, or I don’t. But either way, I’m going to make sure I get a little edge off or put up.”

Bye bye, Brandi

Brandi Glanville is a Real Housewife of Beverly Hills no longer.

TMZ reports that Glanville has been booted from the Bravo show, citing sources as saying that she has been too difficult and that the other cast members no longer want to work with her. You mean there’s a limit to bad behavior on reality TV?

Protective dad

Sunday will be Perez Hilton’s first Father’s Day with his baby girl, but he won’t be going out to celebrate.

Hilton says he’s “pro-vaccination” and won’t take 5-week-old daughter Mia out in public much until she gets her two-month shots. He calls himself “a very cautious parent.”

The 37-year-old celebrity blogger (real name: Mario Lavanderia) started his family in 2013 when son Mario was born via surrogate, as was Mia. Hilton says he decided to become a dad on his own because he “didn’t want to worry about a relationship of mine interfering with the happiness and well-being of my children.”

Though he says he’s open to dating, Hilton remains single and is raising his children with the help of his mom and a nanny.

“Every day is Father’s Day for me,” he said.

New job

NBC said Thursday that Brian Williams will not return to his job as Nightly News anchor following his suspension for misrepresenting himself, but will be given a second chance with the company as a breaking news anchor at the cable network MSNBC.

Williams said he was sorry for saying things that weren’t true, apologized to colleagues and viewers, and said that “I’m determined to earn back their trust.”

Lester Holt, who has been subbing for Williams since his suspension in February, will officially take over as anchor at Nightly News, the network said.
