Bear, Masturbating — In Rolling Stone’s current issue featuring Conan O’Brien and his upcoming talk show at TBS, O’Brien reveals that he plans to find some way to keep his longtime staple character The Masturbating Bear, even if it means meeting with NBC in a courtroom to maintain his property.

Cyrus, Billy Ray — Divorce papers were filed in Tennessee earlier this week confirming the plans for the divorce of Billy Ray Cyrus and his wife Tish, calling for “equal distribution of the family estate.” According to lawyers, divvying guardianship of the offspring should be easy for the couple, however, with Billy Ray getting custody of Miley Cyrus and Tish Cyrus getting Hannah Montana.

Manson, Marilyn — After rocky relationships with pinup Dita Von Teese and actress Evan Rachel Wood, the gothic rocker is said to currently be dating former America’s Top Model contestant CariDee English.

Sheen, Charlie — Following a messy altercation earlier this week wherein, during a trip to New York City with ex-wife Denise Richards and his children, Charlie Sheen went on a drug-fueled rampage and trashed a Plaza Hotel suite full of escorts, Richards says the couple’s daughters no nothing of the event and simply “think they had a fantastic trip in New York with mommy and daddy,” and that their “dad left early.” Allegedly, the children have also been told that Sheen has been “taken to live at a farm where he can run around all day long and play with other daddies, where he’ll be happy.”
