Rob Ford, Doug Ford and Matt Lauer
Mayor Rob Ford continued to defend his leadership ability on Tuesday's Today Show after being stripped of most of his powersMonday by the Toronto City Council.
Nearly two weeks after Ford admitted to smoking crack during a "drunken stupor," he attempted to frame his admission as a sign of moral integrity, since he isn't afraid to admit his mistakes.
"I'm embarrassed. Not just myself," Ford told Matt Lauer. "My family, my friends, my supporters. I take full responsibility for that. We've all made mistakes, Matt. I'm not perfect. Maybe you are, maybe other people are. I've made mistakes. I've admitted to my mistakes."
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
Nothing says true love like simulating sex on a motorcycle in front of a green screen, right? Oh, and don't forget the galloping white horses and rolling clouds over the desert.
Kanye West debuted his Kim Kardashian love-letter music video for "Bound 2" on Tuesday — and it features an apparently naked Kardashian straddling the rapper in front of cheesy nature images.

Those are in addition to the 39 counts filed against the couple in July, which included bank fraud, making false statements on loan applications and bankruptcy fraud. Teresa has also been accused of lying about having a job and a $15,000 monthly salary on a loan application, while Joe has been charged with failing to file tax returns from 2004 to 2008, when he allegedly earned nearly $1 million.
Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki
It's hard out there for a Sam fan.
Since getting possessed by Ezekiel, Sam (Jared Padalecki) has repeatedly been pushed out of the action on Supernatural this season to allow the angel to save the day (with the delightful exception of Sam's scenes with Crowley last week). And though with each use of his powers, Zeke — and thus, Sam — weakens a little more, Padalecki says Sam will get back in the fray soon.
"We do start to see that Zeke is healing Sam," Padalecki tells TVGuide.com. "We do see Sam start to not require so much help from Zeke and his brother. So we will gradually see more bits of Sam more often than Zeke in the upcoming episodes, which doesn't mean we won't see Zeke as well."
After MSNBC suspended Alec Baldwin's talk show Up Late for two weeks in the wake of the actor's apparent use of an anti-gay slur, the actor has now said the talk show might never return.
"Whether the show comes back at all is at issue right now," Baldwin wrote onThe Huffington Post. "The show is no doubt a work in progress and one that I believe featured some interesting guests and disseminated a good deal of interesting information. But if the show dies, its fate ends up being no different than the vast majority of start-up TV programming, and so be it."
Surprising celebrity family ties
Baldwin also took the opportunity to address the accusations that he recently directed a homophobic epithet at a photographer. "What word is said right after the other choice word I use is unclear. But I can assure you, with complete confidence, that a direct homophobic slur (or indirect one for that matter) is not spoken ... My friends who happen to be gay are baffled by this. They see me as one who has recently fought for marriage equality and has been a supporter of gay rights for many years. Now, the charge of being a 'homophobic bigot,' to quote one crusader in the gay community, is affixed."
Justin Timberlake landed the coveted cover of GQ's Men of the Year issue, but the singer's interview got off to a rough start.
"So I find it ironic that I'm doing an interview with you about Man of the Year when I feel—literally—like a bunch of people just took a sh-- on my face," Timberlake told the magazine.
The singer's poor mood was apparently due to the underwhelming critical response to both his latest film Runner Runner and album The 20/20 Experience: 2 of 2.
Surprising celebrity family ties
"Where did all this vitriol come from? It's mean. And I'm not cut out for it," Timberlake said, 20 years after starting his career in show business.
Move over, Fox News. Jon Stewart has a new target: deep-dish pizza.
The Daily Show host delivered an epic rant against Chicago-style pizza, calling it "tomato soup in a bread bowl. This is an above-ground marinara swimming pool for rats."
"I don't know whether to eat it or throw a coin in it and make a wish," Stewart continued. "And if I made a wish, it would be that I'd wish for some real f---in' pizza."
