Will Rihanna and Chris Brown do the unthinkable?

Nearly three years after the infamous assault that ended their relationship and nearly put him in jail, the two are working toward getting back together, according one of the most prolific and unreliable celebrity news sources around! That's crazy!

Chris Brown and Rihanna's Tweets this week got people talking, and MediaTakeOut (dot) com has apparently "been hearing reports for some time" that Rihanna and Brown are working on "RECONCILIATION" (their word, and unnecessary capitals).

SO is it happening or not?

Rihanna and Chris

According to the celebrity gossip site, a person close to Chris Brown says he'd like nothing more than to get back with her. But since the "incident" Chris felt that he'd destroyed any and all chances of a relationship with his "soul mate."

So he stayed away from her, by law, at her request.

But now things have changed. Rihanna and Chris are speaking to each other on the phone, exchanging IMs and text messages to boot. Insanity!

She's in Barbados right now (check out these bikini photos!) but they reportedly plan to meet up when Rihanna returns to Los Angeles next week.

Chris is said to be ecstatic, but Jay Z and Rihanna's managers are reportedly furious that they're back on speaking terms and may reconcile?

Will they? Is any or all of this true? Stay tuned.

VOTE: Should Rih and Chris date again?

If he had had his way, Hugh Hefner would have exchanged vows with Crystal Harris in the summer of 2011.

But the Playboy founder says he won't be making that same mistake in the new year, telling People this week that he "dodged a bullet" when Harris dumped him days before their scheduled June wedding.

"I am clearly not meant to be married," the 85-year old said. "Married life isn't for me."

Don't cry for Hef, however. He's far from lonely.

The bachelor refers to his latest girlfriends, Shera Berchard and Anna Berglund, as "special ladies" and told the magazine he'd be "on top of my game" in 2012. It's unclear which of those women he's nicknamed game.

The divorce of Katy Perry and Russell Brand was months in the making, and the pop star was NOT blindsided by the actor/comedian's filing, reports say.

They decided Brand would file the court papers in the divorce because she didn't want to upset her religious parents, sources close to the couple indicate.

Katy and Russell knew the relationship was on the rocks months ago, but didn't want to bail on the marriage without a concerted effort to work it out.

Sadly, both sides ultimately felt "it just wasn't there."

Katy and Russell were on board with the divorce weeks ago - there was no massive fight that triggered the split - but didn't want to be in L.A. when the papers were filed.

Thus, he went back to England and she went to Hawaii for Christmas.

Fans of Katy know her parents are evangelical Christians, who raised her to believe that divorce is morally wrong. Out of respect to Katy and her family, Russell was the one to officially file; It's unclear how or when Katy will legally respond.

Brand released a statement confirming the split but insisting the two will always love each other and remain friends. Here's hoping that's true, but don't bet on a reconciliation.

These two appear to have had problems since the get-go.

LeBron James capped off his 26th birthday in style last night.

The star made a brilliant inbounds pass to a streaking Dwyane Wade, who converted an alley-oop lay-up in the closing seconds to lift the Miami Heat to 4-0 Friday.

The visiting Heat needed this improbable ending to get the job done, but thanks to James and Wade, they outlasted the scrappy Minnesota Timberwolves, 103-101.

Lame Heat intro video aside, Miami may live up to the hype this year ...

Just weeks after undergoing a double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery, E! News host Giuliana Rancic visited the Today show Friday with husband Bill.

So how is the cancer survivor feeling now?

"I feel great," Giuliana told Matt Lauer. "I feel great considering it's been only two and a half weeks, but I still have a ways to go as far as recovery."

Giuliana and Bill Pic

The Giuliana & Bill star, who returned to work this week, has maintained a positive, but candid attitude about her breast cancer diagnosis and treatment.

Make no mistake, this was no easy decision - or ordeal.

"It was definitely hard," she said regarding how she felt immediately after her invasive surgery. "Up until about a week and a half ago it was hell."

Giuliana was on morphine, in extreme pain and sick to her stomach, but with Bill's help, she managed to get out of bed - and set a hospital record!

Giuliana's doctor gave Bill strict orders to help her walk around the bed and the hospital to aid in her recovery, which provided her motivation.

"I asked a nurse what the record was for walking laps around the hospital," recalled said. "It was two," Bill went on. "G did two and a half."

Brock Lesnar went down hard against kickboxer Alistair Overeem in the first round at UFC 141 last night. A few minutes later, he announced his retirement.

The former heavyweight champion finished his own meteoric mixed martial arts career on a losing note at Friday's Ultimate Fighting Championship event.

Lesnar retired from the UFC after Overeem stopped him with one vicious kick to the body at 2:26 of the first round in their much-touted heavyweight bout.

"Tonight is the last time you'll see me in the octagon," Lesnar said.

That leaves the UFC heading into 2012 without its biggest star.

Even though he fought only seven times in the UFC, Lesnar was a pay-per-view audience magnet because of his compelling past as a WWE "champion."

He reigned as heavyweight champ, headlined UFC 100, generated the most Internet traffic of any MMA fighter and actually has fights left on his contract.

UFC President Dana White and Chairman Lorenzo Fertitta took the high road with Lesnar even after the fighter blew off the post-fight news conference.

White said, "When a guy decides he wants to retire, you let him do it. This is not, 'Go hit a ball with a stick for the next two or three years on your way out.'"

"This is the real deal, guys. Â…We'll figure it out." He said regardless of how many fights Lesnar has on his contract, "Doesn't matter. If he's done, he's done."

Rebecca Gayheart and Grey's Anatomy star Eric Dane have welcomed their second child together, another girl they've named Georgia Geraldine!

Gayheart, 40, and Dane, 39, have been married since 2004, and are already parents to daughter Billie Beatrice, who was born in March 2010.

"Rebecca Gayheart and husband Eric Dane welcomed Georgia Geraldine Dane on Dec. 28, just in time for the New Year!" the pair's rep says.

"Both mom and baby girl are happy and healthy, Billie is thrilled to be a big sister, and dad is getting ready to live in a house full of ladies!"

Eric Dane, Rebecca Gayheart, Daughter

In August, an expectant Rebecca Gayheart shared with People some details about going through what was a more relaxed second pregnancy.

"What’s made it different is that I’m very focused on Billie … so I’m not very focused on [the pregnancy]. I'm not as neurotic," the actress said.

She also confessed to readying herself for the obstacles that awaited the couple as they prepared to parent two kids under the age of 2:

"I've heard that's very challenging. But I think I'm up for it. Eventually it's going to be great because they'll be very close in age, and to each other, hopefully."

Congratulations to the happy, growing family!

For Derek Jeter, this is one double play we're guessing he doesn't mind hitting into.

All indications point to the Yankees superstar rekindling his romance with actress Minka Kelly, as witnesses tell Life & Style the pair are spending the holidays together in Paris. They were spotted at the Musée d'Orsay yesterday.

  • Derek Jeter in Black
  • Minka Kelly Limo Ride

"They had a guide taking them around on the fifth floor, and they were looking at Monet and the works of other French impressionists," a source tells the tabloid "They went to all the different floors; they looked at Van Gogh. Derek was very low-key and was wearing a black-and-gray sweater. Minka looked very pretty. She was wearing white jeans, a brown jacket and boots."

Jeter and Kelly split in August due to their demanding schedules, but since then the latter's remake of Charlie's Angels has been canceled, giving her ample time to go deep into the hole with the iconic shortstop... if you know what we mean!

The Internet may be a "wicked little liar," to use Russell Brand's words, a great deal of the time. But apparently not in this sad case. He's divorcing Katy Perry.

Just 24 hours after Russell was spotted sans wedding ring in London, with Katy 7,000 miles away with friends in Hawaii, the actor filed the papers this afternoon.

Brand personally confirmed the news, saying in a statement: "Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage I'll always adore her and I know we'll remain friends."

Brand cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split in the official divorce documents, filed in Los Angeles Friday. The couple married October 23, 2010.

The documents list "community property assets," which may indicate a lack of prenup, or one that does not account for all their earnings and other assets.

The news is surprising and yet not, given recent reports that the couple had been having problems and spending time apart, possibly following a massive fight.

He does not list a date the couple separated, but TMZ reports that Russell Brand may have blindsided Katy Perry by filing the divorce petition. Stay tuned.

The first minute of this wedding footage is very sweet, but pretty much boilerplate and entirely what you'd expect ... until then the music suddenly changes.

You've gotta hand it to the beautiful bride and her father for choreographing this dance medley, as well as for some of their song selections. Funny stuff.

Watch and roar along with the crowd below:
