Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said we are more than likely headed over the fiscal cliff and called the GOP-controlled House of Representatives a "dictatorship." 

An extremely poor one, but a dictatorship just the same.

Boehner and Reid

Just how bad the fiscal cliff will suck remains to be seen, as does how long it takes to strike a deal. But it looks inevitable that the Dec. 31 deadline will pass, Reid lamented.

He took to the Senate floor to declare his frustration with Congress' other chamber as the deadline to deal with the so-called fiscal cliff rapidly approaches.

Reid argued that House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) could easily end the standoff and avert the across-the-board tax hike in 2013 this afternoon.

In a word? AWWWWW!

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have given the world a glimpse into their Christmas, one filled with happiness, joy, presents... and Dem Babies!

That's the name these stars have given twins Monroe and Moroccan.

  • Mariah Carey, Nick Cannon, Twins
  • Mariah and Twins

"A Carey-Cannon Christmas, the most festive yet!" the couple captioned a photo album on their Dem Babies website. "Merry Christmas to all!"

Cannon made headlines last week when he said the Kim Kardashian sex tape led to the end of his relationship with that reality star.

The America's Got Talent host should be sending Ray J a Thank You card, however. If not for that video, he may never have romanced Mariah - and there would be no Dem Babies to show off around the holidays.

The former point guard was dismissed by the team after posting a 14-14 record through 28 games; he had ironically been named Eastern Conference Coach of the Month for October and November following an 11-4 start.

Johnson, Avery

"The Nets ownership would like to express thanks to Avery for his efforts and to wish him every success in the future," principal owner Mikhail Prokhorov said of the decision.

In response to a petition to deport Piers Morgan from the U.S., a group of Britons who are not huge fans have started a rival petition to keep him in America.

Piers

Morgan's spirited anti-gun rants since the Newtown, Connecticut shooting have spurred calls for the CNN host to be sent back to his British homeland.

Of course, while gun control foes would love nothing more, there's no chance. The 1st Amendment clearly protects his right to ... criticize the 2nd Amendment.

Still, the petition has more than 80,000 signatures, which alarmed a group of Britons who have eagerly come to the outspoken TV personality's defense.

Not because they're fans; they just don't want him back in the UK.

Call us crazy, but we think a new Philadelphia high school program may create a bit of controversy.

According to ABC News, the city - in response to a new report that cites five percent of its high schoolers have tested positive for STDs - is installing condom dispensers in the 22 schools with the highest rates of these diseases.

Condoms

"We believe distributing condoms is part of our obligation to keep students healthy and to remain healthy," said school district spokesman Fernando Gallard. "The health department has described this as a continued epidemic of STDs among teenagers in Philadelphia."
