The defense rested today in the Casey Anthony trial, bringing to an end two weeks' worth of evidence presentation and witness testimony. It did so with the Anthony choosing not to take the stand.

The prosecution will now present a rebuttal case, but it is barely even expected to last a day. Closing arguments will follow, with jury deliberations possibly getting underway this holiday weekend.

If Casey is found guilty of killing her daughter, she could be executed by the state.

Stephen Colbert will not be our next President. But he may have a say who gets the job.

The comedian/talk show host won approval today from the Federal Election Committee to form a SuperPAC, meaning Colbert can raise money and produce/buy television time for political advertisements.

"Moments ago the Federal Election Committee made their ruling," Colbert said ta crown below outside the FEC headquarters. "And ladies and gentlemen I'm sorry to say, we won!"

How did this come about? Former FEC Chairman Robert Lenhard said the ruling "means people can use their network's resources to fund their own PAC ads without needing to report it on their network, on their show."

As for the host of The Colbert Report? Added Lenhard:

"I think he's going to have fun. But until he gets at least a million dollars he's not going to run many ads outside of his show."

Colbert is already working on that, however. He solicited donations from fans during his speech, telling supporters: "I don't know about you but I do not accept limits on my free speech, I don't know about you but I do not accept the status quo. But I do accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express."

Following his victory on The Voice, Javier Colon told reporters: "I didn't expect to win."

But those who watched this singer's performances throughout the competition couldn't have been that shocked.

Under the guidance of coach Adam Levine - who says his team member won because his vocals are "so powerful and special" - Colon improved each week - and we've got the video evidence to prove it!

Sit back and watch a slew of Colon's renditions below, from his early auditions to his finale duet with Stevie Nicks...

Anthony Weiner likely wanted to set a good example for folks during his time in office. But we doubt this is what he had in mind,

Joe Stangni, a Louisiana Councilman, has been caught in a Twitter scandal after The New Orleans Times-Picayune published a photo he sent of himself in his underwear to a town employee.

Explained the politician after this picture leaked: "I had an inappropriate but consensual relationship with an adult female and we exchanged improper electronic communications which ended in 2009. I did not use any government computer or city issued equipment to send or receive these communications."

Following the guidelines of Famous Person Apology 101, Stangi invoked a Higher Power in his statement, adding:

"I asked for God's mercy and forgiveness. I apologized to my wife and family and asked for their forgiveness as well. My actions and bad judgment had nothing to do with my duties and responsibilities as a public official. They were private acts, but I take full responsibility for my irresponsible behavior. This matter has been a painful experience for my family and I pray that everyone will allow our family to continue to heal. I am sorry."

The most embarrassing part of all this? At least Weiner had something to show off.

A man named Justin John Bieber is creating quite the stir on Facebook for two reasons:

  1. His name.
  2. The fact that he goes off on Justin Bieber.
FB Profile

A 50-year old man, this Justin Bieber feels as attached to his name as Michael Bolton did on Office Space: he was here first, he thinks the other Justin Bieber is a "punk ass little bandit" and he has no intention of changing it!

We don't approve of some of Justin John's language or reference, but it's better to see a middle-aged man turning away "little girls" than trying to friend them, isn't it?

UPDATE: Apparently this Facebook profile is a fake and the picture is of French computer scientist Michael Xhaard.

Shia LaBeouf may come across as a sort of shady dirtball who kisses and tells. But an on-set source says this about the Transformers star:

He's not a liar.

Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox

Get a room, Megan Fox and Shia LaBeouf. Wait, you allegedly already did!

Following the actor's admission that he slept with Megan Fox during shooting on the movie's sequel a couple years ago, an insider confirms to Us Weekly:

"Yes, Megan and Shia hooked up... I think they were drawn together because it was so ugly working on that film," adding that Fox was NOT dating Brian Austin Green at the time because "they had a 10-month break before getting back together."

This mole also says Fox was not fired from the franchise. She simply said "enough and quit."

Mark Halperin must be watching too much Tracy Morgan stand-up.

During a live appearance on MSNBC's Morning Joe today, the political analyst was asked about President Obama's behavior yesterday during a meeting with Republicans, inquired about whether or not the show was on a seven-second delay and then said:

The President "acted like a dick." Watch the host's stunned reaction to the insult now:

Halperin, who co-authored the book "Game Change," has been suspended indefinitely by the network and said in a statement:

"I want to offer a heartfelt and profound apology to the president, to my MSNBC colleagues, and to the viewers. My remark was unacceptable, and I deeply regret it."

Should he have been punished?

Lindsay Lohan had her ankle monitor removed and was released from house arrest around 10:20 a.m. Pacific Time yesterday.

Last night, she partied with friends at the Lexington Social House in Los Angeles. We're as shocked as you are: she didn't go there for a late breakfast?!?

  • Lindsay at a Nightclub
  • Failing to Hide

Lohan reportedly spent the evening with actors Emile Hirsch and Lyndsy Fonseca, barely making it out of the club without falling as she tried (and failed) to hide from a swarm of paparazzi.

It's nice to see this star getting back to what she does best, isn't it?

UPDATE: Lohan has replied to this coverage and written on her WhoSay page: “Of course me going to my best friends going away dinner is a headline- especially on my first day out of my house in 35 days. That does not give anyone the right to have a field day and manifest stories. IT WAS A GOING AWAY DINNER, THAT WAS IT

“Nothing exciting happened aside from the very yummy hummus and pita. If anyone caused me to nearly fall it was the pyschotic [sic] paparazzi…. off to the gym now- have a lovely day xo."

Jonathan Rhys-Meyers is a very talented actor with a very troubled personal life.

Great Britain's The Sun reports that paramedics arrived at the star's house in London Tuesday night because he swallowed pills in what is believed to be a suicide attempt.

"This is very sad. It was the opinion of those present that he tried to take his life," an insider tells the newspaper.

Earlier this month, The Tudors star checked into a five-star rehabilitation clinic in South Africa. It was his fifth stint in such a facility.

Let's all hope there's still time for Rhys-Meyers to find his way.

UPDATE: A Scotland Yard spokesman says: "We can confirm we were called by the London Ambulance Service to an address in NW8 to report to a man refusing treatment. Police attended, and the man was taken by ambulance to a central London hospital. That was the end of our involvement."

A friend, meanwhile, says the actor "relapsed," but did not try to kill himself.
