No one can accuse the Greece (N.Y.) Central School District of looking the other way when it comes to its disciplinary response to students bullying others.

The kids who harassed Karen Klein with a 10-minute barrage of vile verbal taunts that went viral were suspended for the entire 2012-13 school year.

If you haven't seen it, this video was the reason why ...

The four seventh grade boys who bullied the 68-year-old grandmother to tears were all issued a one-year suspension from school, a one-year suspension from bus use and ordered to perform 50 hours of community service with the elderly.

They must also complete a bullying prevention program.

The four kids will be all sent to the District Reengagement Center - a special alternative education program - as the town is required to provide an education by law.

Klein received national attention after the video of the boys bullying her went viral. Sympathetic viewers donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to her.

She said from the beginning she did not want to press criminal charges, and that she felt sorry for the kids ... though she does not accept their apologies.

What do you think of the kids' punishment?

Octomom Nadya Suleman and new boyfriend Frankie Grageda went on a date this week. Stunning and breaking news right there, we know. Breathe.

Who knows how you arrange a babysitter when you have 14 children and a house in foreclosure, but lo and behold, Octomom apparently pulled it off.

Gotta make time for yourself and your love life, right?!

Octomom and Frankie Grageda

Octo began dating Frankie G, a 23-year-old bodybuilder, two months ago.

That's a decent chunk of time, but the pair had not been able to go on their first real date without the brood until this week, when Frankie stepped up to the plate.

He reportedly got a friend to watch the kids so he could take her to the beach in Santa Monica! There, she reenacted these scenes from the Octomom porn movie.

Just kidding ... but it wouldn't have surprised us.

The two worked out together on the beach, with Frankie Grageda helping her get in shape for her stripper gig at The Playhouse in Hollywood, Fla., on July 13.

Lisa Vanderpump of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is really sad about her former home, which was featured on the show, being lost in a fire on Friday.

"I'm shocked, really," she told KCAL-TV. "It's been an incredible journey coming to America and living in that house. My daughter got married in that house."

"I'm pretty emotional about it even though I sold it a few months ago."

Lisa Van Der Pump

The massive home, which appears in the opening credits of the Bravo reality show, was featured many times on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

As Lisa said, her daughter Pandora tied the knot on its grounds.

"She got married there in the fall, as everybody who watched RHBOH saw, and it was amazing, and that's what I want to think of it," Vanderpump said.

The fire was reported at about 6:30 p.m. Friday night, according to the LAFD. More than 100 firefighters responded to extinguish the massive flames.

A portion of the roof and portions of the floors collapsed due to the fire, the cause of which is unknown. One firefighter was hospitalized but no one died.

Vanderpump and husband Kenneth Todd downsized recently to a smaller home, selling the place for $19 million after their adult children moved out.

Lisa, Camille Grammer, Taylor Armstrong, Kyle Richards, Kim Richards, Adrianne Maloof and Brandi Glanville return to the Bravo show later this year.

Popular ESPN reporter Erin Andrews is leaving the network, effective today.

ESPN spokesman Mike Soltys confirmed that Andrews, who has been with the worldwide leader in sports since 2004, is a goner. Her contract expires today and the network was unable to reach an agreement on an extension with her.

She will reportedly anchor Fox Sports' college football coverage this fall.

Beautiful Erin Andrews Picture

Fox declined immediate comment Friday night, but the network is making a major push into college football and Erin would represent a major "get."

This will be Fox's first regular season of college football coverage.

ESPN, in a statement wishing her the best in the future, said that Andrews "did great work for us and we made an aggressive offer to keep her."

In other news, Michael David Barrett, the perv who filmed Erin Andrews nude in her hotel room three years ago, is scheduled for release Tuesday.

Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp is so unpopular, it can't even beat a RERUN of Dance Moms on Lifetime. So it's been pushed to 11 p.m., according to reports.

Lifetime will now be airing a new Dance Moms episode at 9 p.m. Tuesdays, followed by a repeat at 10 p.m. in Bristol's old slot, then Palin afterward.

The season premiere of Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp aired June 19 to abysmal ratings and worse reception from critics. It may be the worst show ever.

Bristol Palin Book Signing

It eked out a total audience of 726,000 viewers, many of whom probably hated it pretty bad, and a meager 0.2 rating in the key 18-49 demographic.

The show follows the daughter of former Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin as she lives in an L.A. mansion and volunteers for charity.

Bristol Palin also rides a mechanical bull and so forth.

She brings along little Tripp, of course, her son by Levi Johnston, who turned down money to appear on the show because it's too bad for even him.

What's more, Kyle Massey, Bristol's former friend and DWTS co-star, is suing Lifetime claiming he created the idea and was screwed out of the project.

You might not want to claim credit for this debacle, K.

Their daughter is now six, the age where Scientology will begin to be a major part of her life, and Katie fears Suri will be dragged in too deep.

Holmes has never fully committed to Scientology, TMZ reports, despite her ties with the church and more than five years of marriage to Tom.

As she's grown, the couple had been arguing over Suri with greater frequency, and Katie eventually filed for divorce to protect the little girl.

A key detail in the Tom Cruise-Katie Holmes divorce filing was the location in which it was filed: The 33-year-old actress made if official in New York.

Garrison was arrested April 22 after allegedly hitting his ex-girlfriend Ashley Mattingly, and has remained in custody since then because he's on parole.

The former Prison Break star was convicted of vehicular manslaughter back in 2007; He pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor domestic violence last month.

He could spend up to a year behind bars, not to mention even more trouble if a judge determines that the charge was a violation of his parole terms.

His next court hearing is scheduled for July 11.

It felt all but official this morning, but NBC finally and formally announced that Savannah Guthrie will be the new co-anchor of Today.

Savannah Guthrie debuted Friday but no mention was made on-air.

She had been rumored to be the network's preferred replacement for Ann Curry, who had fallen out of favor with executives and Matt Lauer.

Ann Curry's farewell speech yesterday ended her 14-year tenure at Today, but she only served as Lauer's co-anchor for the last 12 months.

Rumors of NBC firing her began surfacing late last week.

Today executive producer Jim Bell released a statement announcing Savannah's new position, lauding the journalist's unique skill set.

Guthrie "has a one-of-a-kind combination of sharp wit and approachability," Bell said, adding that Today viewers continually "value [Guthrie's] journalistic skills and legal background just as much as her humor and charm."

Bell added of Savannah, "She can effortlessly go from interviewing the Secretary of State to jumping Olympic-sized hurdles on the plaza."

Rumor has it ... Adele is pregnant with her first child!!

Adele and Simon Konecki are expecting, she confirmed Friday: “I’m delighted to announce that Simon [Konecki] and I are expecting our first child together,” the Grammy winner told fans in a post on her official website titled, “I’ve Got Some News.”

That would certainly quality.

Adele at BRIT Awards

Adele's baby will soon be rolling in the crib!

“I wanted you to hear the news direct from me, obviously we’re over the moon and very excited but please respect our privacy at this precious time. Yours always, Adele xx”

The singer/songwriter was first photographed with Konecki, who is 38, and divorced with a daughter, back in January. In February, he accompanied her to the Grammys.

That month, the 24-year-old said in an interview that her goal was to have three sons by the age of 30. Guess she was serious about achieving that life milestone.

“I really want to be a mum,” she said. “I better start getting on with it!”

And so she has! Congratulations to Adele and Simon! As for the guy who dumped Adele and supposedly inspired her career? Wonder what he's thinking ...

Lamb of God singer Randy Blythe was detained in Prague this week. He could face 5-10 years in prison for an altercation at a 2010 show that allegedly left a fan dead.

Reports indicate the incident leading to the arrest of Blythe (full name D. Randall "Randy" Blythe) involved a man repeatedly rushing the stage from the crowd.

He was ejected from the stage and later died of head injuries, according to WTVR, the CBS News affiliate in Lamb of God's hometown of Richmond, Virginia.

Lamb of God canceled a show at the Rock Cafe in Prague Thursday after the singer was brought in for questioning; reports differ as to what happened next.

Some sources say Blythe was arrested and charged with "the crime of bodily harm of 4th degree and resulting in the death of a fan." The band's rep denies this.

Randy's brother, Mark Blythe, told WTVR that if manslaughter charge is actually filed, it is "bogus and outrageous and will be dropped immediately."

The band tweeted the hashtag #FreeRandyBlythe late Thursday. Blythe deleted his once extremely active personal Twitter account earlier this summer.

Maria Ferrero, the Grammy-nominated band's publicist, told MTV News that Lamb of God's management will not comment in full until Monday. However:
