NBC has suspended Billy Bush indefinitely following the fiasco involving a recording of him and Donald Trump degrading women a decade ago.  Bush hosts the 3rd hour of the TODAY show; there’s no word on when or if he will back.

The Los Angeles department of Children and Family Services opened an investigation into the alleged incident of child abuse against Brad Pitt which was then passed onto the FBI and the FBI, apparently never opened an investigation, and they say the matter should never have even been referred to the agency.  The FBI’s official position is that they are still fact-gathering, though they are not calling it an investigation. Those with knowledge of the case say it will go nowhere.

Ryan Lochte is officially off the market.  The Dancing with the Stars contestant posted a photo on his Instagram last night, revealing that he got engaged to girlfriend Kayla Rae Reid last night.  “Memories forever!!!#thelochtes #LA,” Lochte wrote alongside a photo of the couple kissing (and Reid flashing a giant diamond ring) overlooking the ocean in Malibu, California.

Celine Dion has revealed that she has never kissed another man aside from her late husband, Rene Angelil.  The two were married back in 1994, meaning she would have been 26, but since he was her manager and helped launch her career in the 80’s, one can assume that he was probably the only boyfriend she ever had as well.

Daniel Craig has done a 180 degree turn from his past comments about playing James Bond. After Spectre finished filming, Craig said he’d rather “slash his wrists” then play Bond again and now, he’s singing a different tune.  He says he had been away from home for a year filming when he made that comment and it stuck.  Speaking in NY over the weekend, Craig said I’ve got the best job in the world doing Bond.  If I were to stop doing it, I would miss it terribly. I love this job. I get a massive kick out of if and if I can keep getting a kick out of it, I will.”
