Another day, another pile of celebrity dirt! It’s time to catch you up on all the celebrity gossip first thing in the AM so you can be in the know before all of your friends!
Let’s get it started!
One Direction’s Up All Night Third Biggest Debut Of 2012
They are the biggest boy band on the planet right now, and One Direction has solidified their rank as a serious contender not only for the tweens, but for the parents whose wallets were emptied last week when 1D dropped their new album Up All Night.
The group’s sophomore album has sold 540,000 in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
It’s the year’s third-highest debut behind Taylor Swift’s “Red,” which sold 1.2 million units its first week earlier this month, and Mumford & Sons’ “Babel,” which sold more than 600,000 albums in September in its debut week.

To top it off, the album also debuted at the top spot in the UK this week and is No. 1 in more than 30 countries!
Justin Bieber’s Wandering Eye Apparent Cause For Selena Drama
Bieber and Selena Gomez can’t seem to make up their minds about the status of their relationship. Are they on? Are they off? Was that a hotel date, or was that just a “friends with benefits” situation? Seriously, we want to know!
“Justin reached out first and hasn’t stopped reaching out,” explains one source. “Their main problem is Justin has a wandering eye.” (Remember that Victoria’s Secret model he was seen out and about with shortly after his break-up with Selena?)
Apparently Bieber isn’t sold on the possibility that this is “the one”, and that he wants to “experience other girls”. And by other girls, he probably wants to go through that whole college boy confusion state. But that last part is just my own idea, maybe because I truly would be okay with that!
But when it comes to him and Selena, I have a feeling the two will eventually break up. It’s just hard to do so when that is the only relationship you know. Also the two have become best friends, “so breaking that habit is tough.”
Kourtney Kardashian & Scott Disick: Engaged Or Not?
In what could quite possibly be the last major announcement that the entire Kardashian Klan could come up with, long time partners Kourtney and Scott finally announced their engagement for the world to hear. That was at least the buzz over night on quite a few blogs.
After having two children together, and five years of (sometimes) sleeping in the same bed, Scott proposed to Kourtney while they were in Paris last week. “Scott’s actually been planning to propose for a while,” an insider says, “but he just wasn’t sure when the moment would be right.”
“We’re all so thrilled they’ve finally decided to get engaged,” Scott’s aunt, Laurie Disick dished to Star. “We’re all so fond of Kourtney, and we wish them a long, happy marriage.”
Fast forward to this morning and E! has completely squashed those rumors: ”They call each other husband and wife,” the youngest Jenner sibling told E! News. “Who cares? ‘It’s a piece of paper.”
At this point, Kim and Kanye will be engaged faster than Kourtney and Scott!
Elmo’s Main Man Quits Among Another Underage Sex Accusation
Kevin Clash, the man behind the voice and the puppet of Elmo, has resigned from Sesame Street after 28 years.
Kevin was under accusation last week of underage sex with a 16 year old boy, seven years ago. That was dropped, and the world seemed to move on. However, a second man, Cecil Singleton, 24, says he and Clash had a sexual relationship starting when he was 15. He says the two met on a gay phone chat line in 2003, and his suit accuses Kevin of surfing chat lines “to meet and have sex with underage boys.”
Sesame Streets says: ”The controversy surrounding Kevin’s personal life has become a distraction that none of us want, and he has concluded that he can no longer be effective in his job … This is a sad day for Sesame Street.”
Indeed it is! Elmo was my dude growing up!
