Hefner, Hugh — In an interview with Esquire magazine, Playboy founder says he’s probably slept with over a thousand women but vehemently asserts that when he was married (he’s been married three times) he was committed and never strayed from his vows. Hef reportedly made it perfectly clear that when he was married, his wife was the only person to whom Hefner paid ridiculous amounts of money to tell other people she was having sex with him.

Leno, Jay –– After rumors hit the web last week that 12:30 slotter Jimmy Fallon has been offered Leno’s Tonight Show, ousting the silver fox for the younger-skewing Fallon, Leno has resorted to bashing the network for the last several nights in his monologue despite network insistence that he stop doing so. It really must suck to think you have The Tonight Show only to learn NBC has other plans, eh Jay? Man, really feel for ya. Hope it all works out.

McKellen, Ian — Magneto and Charles Xavier will put away their differences for one day when X-Men actor Ian McKellen will officiate his old pal and X-Men costar Patrick Stewart’s wedding to jazz singer Sunny Ozell. McKellen appeared on the UK’s Jonathan Ross Show to declare “I’m marrying Patrick,” a phrase which surely delighted thousands of X-Men slash fiction writers everywhere before the statement was sadly clarified for them.

Swinton, Tilda — Silly you; while you were presumably busy for the past few weeks, you’ve completely forgotten to check in on your pal actress Tilda Swinton. That’s why you’ll be happy to know that she’s been showing up unannounced to sleep in a glass case at New York’s Museum of Modern Art. If you need her, she can be found in the east wing as part of the only semi-popular installation Androgynous Ginger in Repose.
