MAN PLEADS NOT GUILTY TO BREAKING INTO LL COOL J'S HOME
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A man has pleaded not guilty to breaking into LL Cool J's home. Jonathan Kirby was arrested after Cool found him in his kitchen.

"OOGIELOVES IN THE THE BIG BALLOON ADVENTURE"
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Even thought Kenn Viselman is the man behind the "Teletubbies" and "Thomas the Tank Engine" he still couldn't convince studios to let him make a G-rated movie for kids. He says most studios wanted at least a PG-13 rating. He says they would've thrown him out of their office if he hadn't made "something like 20 billion dollars in the world of kids and families." So instead, he says, he was "dismissed." He's releasing the movie independently without the help of a studio.
SMOKING CAUSED TYLER PERRY FIRE
ATLANTA (AP) -- Smoking caused the fire at Tyler Perry's studios in Atlanta. A fire department captain says someone didn't put out a cigarette properly. The fire was contained to the roof of a building that was being repaired. That's better than what happened last month. It took more than 100 firefighters to put out another blaze that heavily damaged a simulated streetscape.
"THE SOUP" THROWS ANISTON AND THEROUX A WEDDING TONIGHT
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- So what if the couple doesn't show? "The Soup" is still throwing what it calls the "Wedding of the Century" for Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux tonight on E! They spent a whole $300 on it. Joel McHale got help from the wedding planner for "RuPaul's Drag Race" and a monkey. Mankini, the guy who wears a bikini top and pants on the show, will perform the ceremony -- whether or not Aniston and Theroux show up.

"BABY DADDY" - TAHJ MOWRY
BEVERLY HILLS (AP) -- Ben finds himself in an embarrassing position in tonight's season finale of "Baby Daddy." Riley organizes a wedding for her friends Katie and Dave, but after a night of drinking, Ben wakes up in the bride's bed on her wedding day. Even though Tucker is supposed to be learning how to take care of a baby, in real life Tahj Mowry (MOHR'-ee) has some experience. He has a little nephew. But he can't let on that he's experienced, so he has to make believe he can't change a diaper because "watching a guy change a diaper is always going to be more comical than watching a woman."
LINDSAY LOHAN-NO CHARGES
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Lindsay Lohan is off one legal hook. L-A prosecutors have decided not file charges against Lohan over the rip-off of some items from a friend's house. Prosecutors say they didn't have the evidence to prove Lohan and two others might have been involved. Lohan is still on informal probation for taking a necklace without permission in January of 2011. That was just weeks after she was released from court-ordered rehab.
