megan foxStill wondering why Megan Fox wasn't in the third Transformers movie?  Well according to sources, Steven Spielberg demanded that she be fired after she compared director Michael Bay to Hitler.  Fox was then replaced by Victoria's Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in the latest installation of the blockbuster series.  The drama started to unfold in 2009, she told London's Wonderland Magazine "[Bay] wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is. So he's a nightmare to work for but when you get him away from set, and he's not in director mode, I kind of really enjoy his personality because he's so awkward, so hopelessly awkward."  She also claimed that, "He has no social skills at all. And it's endearing to watch him. He's vulnerable and fragile in real life and then on set he's a tyrant."  How....sweet?  Bay claimed to not be offended by these remarks, but a member of his crew felt otherwise and wrote in an open letter on Bay's website, "We've had the tedious experience of working with the dumb-as-a-rock Megan Fox on both Transformers movies."  No love loss between this cast and crew! -Popeater

Abstinence spokesmodel, Bristol Palin, confesses in her new memoir Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far to losing her virginity while getting drunk on wine coolers during a camping trip.  According to Palin, she didn't even remember what happened after waking up until she overheard ex-boyfriend, Levi Johnston, bragging about it to his buddies on the phone.  After confronting Johnston, he promised they wouldn't have sex again until they were married.  Cough, cough. I believe him.  In the book, Palin states that Johnston's reaction to becoming a father was, "better be a (bleeping) boy" and she claims that Johnston cheated on her "as frequently as he sharpened his hockey skates." Who knew abstinence and wine coolers don't mix?! -Gawker

America's been weeping ever since Regis Philbin announced earlier this year that this would be his final year on the Live with Regis & Kelly.  He is scheduled to leave in November, but the big question is - who will replace him?  There's only one Regis, so these will be some big shoes to fill.  A new report states that they have it narrowed down to 3 people at this point: TV and radio personality Ryan Seacrest, Bravo executive and host of the network’s late-night talk show, Watch What Happens: Live, Andy Cohen, and actor Mark Consuelos.  Many believe that Cohen and Consuelos will have better odds at getting the job due to chemistry.  Cohen and Kelly Ripa are close personal friends and Consuelos is definitely close and personal with her - they are husband and wife afterall.  Talk about taking your work home with you.  An ABC-Disney spokesperson dismissed the report, telling WSJ “it’s ridiculous at this point to be speculating about who will replace him.”  We will just have to wait and see. -THR
