The Entertation Index: November 3

November 3, 2011

Bieber, Justin — A California woman has signed a sworn affidavit that “Baby” singer Justin Bieber is in fact the father of her three-month old child after a hookup at L.A.’s Staples Center after a concert a year ago. Bieber continues to claim the child isn’t his, but that’s difficult to prove since the infant already has three million twitter followers, an upcoming Christmas album and no one can seem to tell if it’s a boy or a girl.

Cates, Gil — Long-time Oscars producer Gil Cates, who has produced fourteen of the awards telecasts, has passed away at age 77. His funeral is expected to go much longer than planned with an orchestra and lit sign alerting the minister to “wrap it up.” Kidding aside, our thoughts do go out to his family.

Deschanel, Zooey — The New Girl star and her husband, Death Cab for Cutie front man Ben Gibbard have announced their divorce after two years of marriage. But before you go getting any fancy ideas, hipsters, you should know that just because you’re wearing an ironic t-shirt with a cardigan and thick-rimmed glasses as you sip your Argentinian matcha and pretend to read The Atlantic doesn’t mean she’s going to go for you. Sorry to break it to you, big guy.

Housewives, RealReal Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks tells an AP reporter that reality TV is a catalyst for bullying in the untelevised world. “Unfortunately I do think that reality TV has spawned a whole culture of bullying,” said Parks. “I believe that the behavior you see on reality TV does not exactly exemplify how adults should be conducting themselves.” Then she went on to hype the premiere of Real Housewives of Atlanta in November. So…yeah. There you go.
