Emma Watson Gets Pixie Haircut
Harry Potter star Emma Watson, who plays the matter-of-fact Hermonie Granger, has chopped off nearly all her hair. Now that the Harry Potter saga is coming to an end, the actress decided to change her look. She took to Facebook to debut her new look, telling friends, “Dear all. Cut my hair off a few days ago. Feels incredible. I love it.” The 20-year-old now looks like a young Mia Farrow. Apparently Watson has wanted to go short for a long time, but a little movie franchise got in her way. She Facebooked, “I've wanted to do this for years and years; it's the most liberating thing ever. Hope you like." Yes we do, Ms. Watson. [New York Daily News]
Sandra Bullock Takes Stalker to Court
As if this year hasn’t been enough of an emotional roller coaster for Sandra Bullock, the actress is now dealing with a stalker. The Academy Award-winner went to court this week to obtain a restraining order against Thomas James Weldon, who reportedly has a history of travelling cross-country to try and meet the actress. The court order Weldon to refrain from trying to make contact with Bullock or her newly adopted infant child Louis Bardo Bullock. This is not the first time Bullock has taken out a restraining order against Weldon. She did so in 2003, however that order expired last year. Weldon has spent the last seven years in a Wyoming mental hospital and upon his release went back to his old ways of trying to find Sandra. Scary. [Huffington Post]

Famous drunkard Amy Winehouse apparently insulted the King of the Zulus when she was recently taken to a royal dinner in his honor. Winehouse got hammered and attended the launch of an African-themed restaurant with her boobs falling out of her dress upon arrival. The King of the Zulus Goodwill Zwelthini then made a 15-minute speech that Amy ignored and eventually passed out during in full view of the king. “It was embarrassing. Amy was in a state. People were cringing. Before the king arrived she was downing glasses of wine and snogging the face off Reg. She completely insulted the King during his speech. Amy showed no respect,” The Sun quoted a source as saying. The women is all class. [The Sun]
Knicks Refuse to Make New Mistakes, Continue Reliving Old Ones
Several years ago, Isaiah Thomas turned the New York Knicks into the laughing stock of the NBA while serving as the team's head coach and president. Through a series of coaching gaffes, mis-management, and one financially crippling sexual harassment suit, Thomas turned the Knicks into the single worst franchise in professional basketball. Today, after a two-year absence from the team, the Knicks have re-hired Thomas as a consultant in an apparent effort to dismantle the mild progress the organization has made since his departure.

Michael Irvin Had Sex in his Hall of Fame Blazer
When former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame he did not take his inductee blazer off for days. Like, at all. "I wore it for two straight days. Finally my wife was in bed and said she wanted to make love but that I had to take the coat off. I refused and kept the blazer on because I wanted to perform like a Hall of Famer on the field and off.” [Chicago Tribune]
