Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon To Star in New TV Series

Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet reunited at charity auction last night, where Madonna did a surprise performance and Leo got into a bidding war with Harvey Weinstein and ended up spending $400k for “a large portrait of the actor in paint and crushed-up plates by Julian Schnabel.” Stars, they’re just like us!

Justin Bieber accidentally clipped a paparazzo while leaving a church event yesterday.

-There’s lots of odd but good news coming out of the TCAs today. Chris Pine will star in a 6-episode TNT drama directed by Wonder Woman’s Patty Jenkins, written by her husband, and inspired by Fauna Hodel. Showtime announced a new pilot executive-produced by Ben Affleck and Matt Damon about crime & corruption in early 90s Boston. Channing Tatum and Joseph Gordon-Levitt made an 80’s cop show  for Amazon that is a parody of a Romanian TV series.

He seemingly admits to cheating on Beyonce, talks about a “Becky,” addresses elevator-gate, calls out Kanye West, and reveals his mom is gay. Yeah, it’s a lot.
