PIPPA!: No flame like an old flame, per The Sun, “Royal bridesmaid Pippa Middleton is following in sister Kate's noble footsteps — she's dating a mega-rich Earl whose real-life home is HOGWARTS.

HELPING HAND: Wonder what Bruce thought of the Demi deal? Here’s a hint, per People, “Shortly before Demi Moore split with Ashton Kutcher, her previous husband Bruce Willis went to her house to ask her to get help for her worsening health, a source tells PEOPLE in this week's cover story. "He was worried about her and wanted her to get better," says the source. "Many of her friends did the same thing, but she just wouldn't listen." http://bit.ly/wp3Hqi
WHIP MY HAIR: Back and forth. . .um, not. Per PerezHilton, “Now she really looks like her daddy! Willow Smith won't be whipping her hair back and worth anytime soon because she shaved it all off.” http://bit.ly/xEmXZk
COLBERT REPORT: In defense of super PACs, per the Los Angeles Times, “Stephen Colbert continued his one-man crusade against "super PACs" on Thursday night with an ironic salute to 22 of their biggest backers. "To all the worrywarts out there who said that super PACs were going to lead to a cabal of billionaires secretly buying democracy: Wrong. They are publicly buying democracy," Colbert (sort of) joked. As he explained, approximately half of all super PAC money -- some $67 million dollars -- came from just 22 donors.” http://lat.ms/zQ9vui
NOT DEAD: Eddie Murphy, that is, per TMZ, “The Internet is blowing up with reports that Eddie Murphy is dead. NOT TRUE. We made some calls, and Eddie is very much alive. The frenzy was triggered by MediaFetcher.com. The site has been spinning bogus stories about other celebs they claim are dead but are not.” http://bit.ly/wK1Ktw

That was in 1985.” http://bit.ly/wrgPPe
STAYIN’ ALIVE: Good news, per the AP, “Bee Gee star Robin Gibb says he is making a strong recovery and putting on weight after suffering from a serious illness. He told BBC radio on Friday that he feels better than he has in a decade.” http://apne.ws/zMrDyf
