I had a plan that if my score was really well, then I might of just went to Yale or Harvard. But it was just mediocre." While some say Brad Pitt's new Hollywood Hills home was purchased as a bachelor pad in preparation for his breakup with Angelina, the dominant view is that he got it as an expansion of the Brangelina compound, to house the couple and their slew of multiethnic offspring. Angelina, meanwhile, feels like Brad isn't "pulling his weight" in their relationship, and she's shouldering the burden of raising their kids. Apparently, "she'll yell at him when he makes the eggs too runny or burns something." Sixteen-year-old Taylor Momsen's been sneaking cigarettes on the Gossip Girl set. Taylor Swift, meanwhile, is coming out with her own line of greeting cards. And Katy Perry went to Starbucks in a leotard.
On this Sunday's Family Guy, Chace Crawford voices a character named Luke, who robs a convenience store, gets arrested, and breaks out of jail.

Surely it had nothing to do with the Topomax, Methylprednisolone, Fluoexetine, Klonopin, Ativan, Vicoprofen, Propranolol, Biaxin, hydrocodone, and "miscellaneous vitamins" found in her bedroom (all of which Brittany's mother claims were his in the first place). In the midst of being sued by her landlord for the three months' rent she never paid, Mischa Barton hung out with her Tibetan spaniel, Ziggy, at the Cooper Square Hotel.

Elton John is rumored to be joining Lady Gaga onstage at this Sunday's Grammys. Ozzy Osbourne thinks Johnny Depp should play him in the big-screen version of his upcoming memoir I Am Ozzy.
ABC canceled Ugly Betty. Will Ferrell and his wife welcomed their third child, Axel. Jets Braylon Edwards, Wallace Wright, and James Ihedigbo chatted about how they didn't expect Peyton Manning to throw so many complete passes during Sunday's game over dinner the next night at Abe & Arthur's. And Ashley Tisdale tweeted some deep thoughts, "On my way to the dentist :/ have to get a cavity done. Not to excited.
