Nobody can seem to get their Lamar Odom facts straight. The NBA star reportedly checked into rehab on Wednesday, but that story wasn’t confirmed and he reportedly fell off the radar. Now they’re saying he spent a day in rehab and left already. He’s also suppopsedly gone on a crack binge. (story)

Gina Gershon will be playing fashion icon Donatella Versace in a new movie, and she looks exactly like her — well, without all the weathering.

Kourtney Kardashian

A male model is suing Kourtney Kardashian, claiming he is the father of the reality star’s son.

Michael Girgenti claims he met Kardashian in 2009 during a photoshoot while she was on a break from her longterm boyfriend Scott Disick. Her son Mason, 3, was born nine months after the pair allegedly had unprotected sex in Glendale, Calif.

Girgenti filed a lawsuit at the Los Angeles County Superior Court demanding a DNA test to determine whether he’s Mason’s biological father. He seeks joint custody if he is Mason’s parent.

A hearing is scheduled in September.

Kardashian’s lawyer, Shawn Holley, wrote a letter to Girgenti, calling his allegations “false and defamatory.”

A representative for Kardashian previously insisted, “Since the… photoshoot, Kourtney never spoke with him, saw him nor met him again. Kourtney has never been alone with him, and Kourtney certainly has never physically/intimately been with Mr. Girgenti.”

Kardashian also has a daughter, Penelope, who turned one in July.

Syfy

The strange success of Syfy’s Sharknado movie – which former “90210” star Ian Ziering called his “John Travolta ‘Pulp Fiction’ moment,” by the way – can probably be attributed to the same cultural normative (or abnormative, we should say) that made “Bubba Teeth” a hit: Every now and then, people just like to drop all pretense and participate in the humor of things.

But it looks like it may just be those producers who took a chance on such an utterly ridiculous movie concept who get the last laugh when this thing hits actual theaters. ‘Cause that’s happening now.

Yep, “Sharknado” took the TV-observing world by storm, pun intended, for several reasons, not the least of which was an out-right social media frenzy over the unashamed ridiculousness of the film. Live-tweeting it was kind of the thing to do that night (’cause what else is going down on some random Thursday evening?).

While viewership itself was ultimately just so-so, it was the web impact that really had teeth; at one point, the title was reportedly the subject of 5,000 tweets a minute.

And though Syfy’s been responding to the interest with shark-themed marathons and, yes, even plans for a sequel (!!), they’ve now got even bigger aspirations to see what kinda damage this thing can do on the big screen.

That’s right. Regal Entertainment will be hosting midnight screenings of “Sharknado” on Aug. 2 at some 200 theaters across the country.

“‘Sharknado’ has become a force of nature in its own right,” a rep for the theater chain explained. “The project transcends the original television platform and has created tremendous buzz. There’s just something epic about watching these huge beasts on the big screen with your friends and family. The crowd reactions will make for a memorable experience in our theatres … Regal is proud to be giving our guests this chance to fuel the social media whirlwind by inviting friends to come to the show and tweeting reactions.”

So … sticking with the weather-y theme, will lightning strike twice with this “Sharknado” thing?

Miley Cyrus

MTV is developing an hour-long Miley Cyrus documentary that will air later this year.

The singer/actress invited cameramen to tag along while she was working on her new album. According to MTV’s president of programming, Susanne Daniels, the film will spotlight the star’s transition from “Disney princess to legitimate artist and fashion icon.”

Cyrus’ current single, “We Can’t Stop,” is No. 2 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. She recently admitted that the song is about taking drugs at a party. She told London’s Daily Mail: “I don’t think people have a hard time understanding that I’ve grown up. You can Google me and you know what I’m up to — you know what that lyric is saying.”

The singer, 20, also just got naked for Marc Jacobs’ skin cancer awareness campaign. She posed completely nude for the “Protect the Skin You’re In” campaign, which features the star on a line of t-shirts.

Cyrus kicked off her showbiz career by starring in the Disney series “Hannah Montana” from 2006-11. She has since been working hard to prove she’s “grown up” and eschew her good girl image.

Beyonce

Beyonce’s husband Jay-Z surprised her in Philadelphia, Penn., on Thursday night by joining her on stage and kissing her towards the end of her concert.

The rapper, who is currently touring with Justin Timberlake, took some time off to spend time with his sweetie.

Jay-Z snuck up behind his wife and hugged her, and the crowd went wild. Beyonce’s look of surprise and the tender moment they shared together prompted concertgoers to cheer for the super couple.

Beyonce’s tour has reportedly already made around $55.6 million. Her next show is scheduled for Monday, June 28, at The Staple Center in Los Angeles.

However, fans eagerly waiting for her next album may have to wait a little longer. Fans hoping for new music this summer or fall will probably have to wait until 2014. According to a recent report, the songs that the singer has already recorded have been scrapped.

One Direction

International pop sensation One Direction‘s latest album will be called Midnight Memories.

The British-Irish boyband have revealed the name of their new record the follow-up to last year’s Take Me Home – in a video posted on their Instagram account today .

The clip showed Harry Styles rearranging pieces of paper each with a letter on to spell out the album’s title. The caption for the video said: “So did you get it…? 1DHQ x #1DAlbumTitle.”

The band confirmed the name and release date for their third studio album, and added fans can pre-order it from Monday 9. They tweeted: “YES – 1D’s 3rd album is MIDNIGHT MEMORIES & is out Nov 25th! AND you can pre-order Mon! 1DHQ x #RememberRememberThe25thNovember.”

The record will feature their hit single Best Song Ever, which recently won the ‘Song of the Summer’ prize at the MTV Video Music Awards.

Zayn Malik teased fans earlier in the day when he posted a cryptic video which featured the first few seconds of the final clip, showing his band mate starting to move the pieces of paper into place. Along with the clip, he wrote: “What is @harry_styles up to?”

Midnight Memories is expected to feature a number of writing collaborations with other artists, and McFly’s Danny Jones has confirmed his band penned a track for the record.

He previously said: “We obviously love the boys. They’re amazing guys. We’ve got a new track on their album … I’m glad that they came to us because we can give them good music.”

Mike O'Malley

Glee fans know Mike O’Malley as Kurt’s (Chris Colfer) father, a single dad who dated Finn’s (Cory Monteith) mother. O’Malley has a new show on NBC, Welcome to the Family, and when NBC presented the show to the Television Critics Association, O’Malley shared his thoughts on Monteith’s death and plans to appear in the Glee episode about Finn’s funeral.

“I hope to,” O’Malley said. “I’m here doing Welcome to the Family and we shoot one episode five days a week, but Burt is a very, very important role to me. It’s been a great, great part and I’ve said to all those guys I’ll work early in the morning, late at night, Saturdays, Sundays to participate in not only continuing to be on that show, but honoring Cory and his passing and that character. He is on the show my stepson so I certainly plan on being there, and they may possibly be shooting that episode in the time we’re on hiatus.”

Recalling his time with Monteith, O’Malley praised his work in a famous scene where Burt caught Finn using the F-word towards his son. “I had many of my scenes on Glee with either Chris Colfer or Cory Monteith,” O’Malley said. “I think that I had what was probably the toughest scene I’ve ever acted in my career as an actor opposite him when I had to throw him out of the house because his character Finn out of the house because of a slur that he used. It was remarkable to me when we were shooting that scene over and over again, the depth of emotion that he was able to portray, the sorrow, the shame.”

Since Monteith died, all of his Glee costars have spoke about his kindness and work ethic, O’Malley included. “Ever since I met him, he was the fictional quarterback on that show and he was the very real quarterback on that set. He was an incredibly warm guy, a guy who was welcoming to everyone who came on that show from the beginning through the new folks who came onto the show this past year. He was a very, very hard working actor. I just loved working with him. He was a great guy. I miss him very much.”

Glee returns this fall on Fox and look for Welcome to the Family on NBC.
