The E Buzz for May 13, 2011
From Hugh Grant to Ashton Kutcher
Yesterday we heard talks had fallen through for Hugh Grant to replace Charlie Sheen on "Two and a Half Men," and today we find out it may be Ashton Kutcher taking the role. "The Hollywood Reporter" says Kutcher has all but signed the deal and is getting a "huge payday" to take Sheen's place.
"Idol" Top 3
More than a few people were surprised last night when James Durbin was eliminated from "American Idol." That leaves Haley Reinhart, Lauren Alaina, and Scotty McCreery as the top three. Next week they will all travel to their hometowns before another contestant is given the boot.
Another Celebrity Owes $$$$
She may be one of the finalists on "Celebrity Apprentice," but that doesn't mean she's exempt from the IRS. Actress Marlee Matlin owes the IRS $50,000 in back taxes. She had this to say, "I'm paying it back. I'm not shying away from it, and I'm certainly not ashamed of it. It doesn't mean I'm a bad person. It's reality. It's the reality that a lot of people in America are facing."
