Jon Stewart found out the hard way what fans of "Bridget Jones's Diary" have known for years: Hugh Grant can play a pretty convincing bad guy. In the 13 years he's hosted “The Daily Show," Stewart has conducted plenty of tense interviews with powerful, high-profile people, but it turns out the worst guest he ever dealt with wasn't a warmongering politician or an egomaniacal filmmaker. Nope, it was the floppy-haired rom-com star and phone-hacking victim, who paid a visit to “The Daily Show” back in 2009 to promote the instantly forgettable witness-protection comedy, “Did You Hear About the Morgans?

Crystal Harris is showing off another engagement ring from Hugh Hefner -- the man she famously left just days before they were supposed to marry last year. Now they are engaged again. Is it true love or is it a publicity stunt? [Los Angeles Times] Rachel Zoe's clothing line launched with much fanfare in 2011, but interest seems to be fading, at least in bricks-and-mortar stores. British department store Selfridges has dropped the apparel (but kept the shoes), Saks is offering it online only and Bloomingdale's seems to have cut back on the quantity available in-store.

That's one small step for Congress, one giant leap for … people who watch TV. Or not. In case you haven't, uh, heard, the Commercial Advertisement Loudness Mitigation Act, better known as the CALM Act, went into effect Thursday. What's that, you say? Or should it be: What's that you say? You know, in case someone is reading this to you while the television blares in the background. (And isn't English-language punctuation a wonderful and mysterious thing?) But I digress.

Crystal Harris was flaunting her new engagement ring - the second she's received from one Hugh Hefner in two years - Tuesday on Twitter. With the caption "My beautiful ring from @hughhefner," Harris posted a montage of the new dazzler, shown above, which is similar but not identical to the one she accepted in December 2010 and then auctioned off in October 2011 after she decided to walk away only days before their planned June wedding....

Hugh Jackman's Wolverine mutton chops may make him look tough, but he revealed his tender side during a "60 Minutes" profile aired Sunday night to promote "Les Misérables. " The interview, conducted by Scott Pelley, involved Jackman discussing his childhood in Australia, which was marred by the actor's mother leaving the family, forcing his father to raise five children alone. Pelley asked Jackman, "What advice does [your father] give you today?" Surprisingly, the thought caused the normally jolly Jackman to choke up on camera.

Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris are reportedly headed down the aisle once again - though technically they'd be hitting it for the first time, after she pulled the runaway-bride thing on him five days before their planned wedding in June 2011. The 86-year-old and the 26-year-old are allegedly engaged again and aiming to say their vows on New Year's Eve, sources told TMZ over the weekend. Apparently time apart from Hef taught Harris to be more independent, something she thought she needed, the sources said.

An Orange County woman who conspired with her lover to kill her husband as he slept and who later escaped from prison with a guard has been recommended for parole. Jeanette Lynn Hughes, 58, was convicted in 1985 of plotting to murder her husband, James Hughes, as he slept in their Huntington Beach home. She was sentenced to 26 years to life in prison. The state parole board granted Hughes' request on Friday in Sacramento after a hearing that stretched more than seven hours, said prosecutor Paul Chrisopoulos with the Orange County district attorney's office.
