It's all fun and games until someone pulls a piece on a paparazzo.

As we previously reported, Pippa Middleton is at the center of a gun scandal after she and her friends went for a spin in a convertible last weekend.

After partying at a raucous bash in Paris until 5 a.m., Pips was spotted leaving in a car with friends, when the driver took out what appeared to be a semi-automatic pistol and aimed it at a celebrity news photographer. But was the gun even real?

Royal Scandal

Sitting in the passenger seat, Pippa Middleton laughed.

Nobody's laughing now. Especially not her in-laws.

"This is embarrassing for them," a royal source says. The surprising scandal "has put [Kate Middleton] in a very difficult position," the source adds.

However, it appears that the excitement, which included reports that Pippa Middleton could face criminal charges, may have been overblown.

ABC News reports that the photographer claims he knew all along that the gun was a fake and has been telling people he never felt scared by it.

The Secret Service is looking into comments made this weekend by extreme right-winger Ted Nugent.

During a gathering sponsored by the National Rife Association, the rocker - referring to the upcoming election - urged members of the organization help "chop their heads off in November" and added:

"I'll tell you this right now: If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year. We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November. Any questions?"

Referring to the current administration as "criminals," Nugent appeared to directly threaten Obama - which is a crime - by ranting:

"If the coyote's in your living room, pissing on your couch, it's not the coyote's fault. It's your fault for not shooting him."

Responded Andrea Saul, a spokeswoman for Mitt Romney, the candidate Nugent is backing: "Divisive language is offensive no matter what side of the political aisle it comes from. Mitt Romney believes everyone needs to be civil."

The producers of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette are not exactly coming up roses in a new lawsuit from two African-Americans who auditioned last year.

They were turned down, allegedly, because of their race.

According to court papers, the two plaintiffs went to a Nashville hotel to audition, either as The Bachelor star or as contestants on The Bachelorette.

Christopher Johnson, an aspiring NFL player, claims when he arrived a producer asked him what he was doing there ... then shunned from the process.

The Bachelor Logo

Johnson and the other plaintiff, Nathaniel Claybrooks, both say they were taken to the side of the room and left out of the normal audition process.

Neither was called back, they say because of race. In 20+ seasons, there has never been a black Bachelor (which Lamar Hurd seeks to change) or Bachelorette.

They will be filing a class action lawsuit in federal court Wednesday morning. ABC, Next Entertainment, NZK Productions and creator Mike Fleiss, will all be sued.

A beacon of diversity, The Bachelorette returns Monday, May 14, with 25 white guys doing their best to woo beautiful white girl Emily Maynard.

Known for her dirty mouth and extreme views, has Sarah Silverman finally gone too far? Some may believe so.

The comedian sent out a Tweet over the weekend that included two photos and a caption. In the first image, she's joined by boyfriend Alec Sulkin and a puffed out belly. In the second, her stomach has returned to its regular size and it's accompanied by the words:

“Got a quickie aborsh in cas R v W gets overturned.”

Silverman posted the Tweet in response to Mitt Romney becoming the presumptive Republican nominee for President. He referred to Roe vs. Wade last January as "one of the darkest moments in Supreme Court history."

What do you think of Silverman's actions? Funny and harmless? Or totally wrong and inappropriate? Did she cross a line?

Pippa Middleton could face criminal charges after a male companion was reportedly caught brandishing a gun and allegedly pointing it at a photographer.

The younger sister of Kate Middleton was in the passenger seat of an Audi convertible with three male friends Sunday in Paris when all hell broke loose.

The driver allegedly reached for a semi-automatic gun and jokingly aimed it at a celebrity gossip photographer following them, London's The Sun reports.

Pip Pip Hoo-ray

The image, released to the Sun by the French photographer at whom the pistol was aimed, shows Middleton looking back at the paparazzo and grinning.

The paper reported that the Paris Judicial Police department is "poised" to launch a probe into the incident. Charges could result in prison sentences.

Even if the gun turns out to be a fake, criminal charges are possible.

"If the evidence points to her involvement, she will be prosecuted. Anybody involved in the illegal use of a handgun in public is liable to arrest," a source said.

The French photographer is still weighing whether to file a formal police complaint, the Sun's royal editor, Duncan Larcombe, confirmed this morning.

A dozen Secret Service agents have been removed from their posts in Colombia, U.S. officials confirm, following incidents of "misconduct" that sources say relate to at least one refusing to pay a prostitute for her services.

The agents were stationed in that country ahead of President Obama's arrival for the Summit of the Americas, which started today.

Obama and Agents

Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan has not yet disclosed the nature of the allegations that resulted in replacing these agents with new ones, though insiders tell The Washington Post that at least one agent solicited a prostitute - the act is legal in certain Colombian areas - who then went to the police when she was not paid.

None of those relieved of duty was a member of the President's security detail.

Ronald Kessler, the author of "In the President's Service" and a former reporter for The Washington Post, told CBS News this represents "the biggest scandal in Secret Service history" and marks a "tremendous embarrassment to the U.S."

Movie critics are unhappy with the current Three Stooges film because it's terrible.

But The Catholic League is displeased with the new comedy for an entirely different reason, and it's summed up in the following photo:

The Three Stooges Scene

President Bill Donohue has issued a statement in which he's critical of the idea that this comedy is a faithful homage to the goofy trio.

"Yes, the slapstick is there, along with the groans, pokes, thumps and the like. But the TV show never mocked nuns or showed infants urinating in the face of the Stooges. The film does," Donohue said.

As seen above, Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Kate Upton portrays a nun in the movie, donning a rosary necklace along with a bikini.

Larry David also takes on the role of nun... named Sister Mary-Mengele, likely after the Nazi war criminal Joseph Mengele.

"This movie is not just another remake: it is a cultural marker of sociological significance, and what it says about the way we've changed is not encouraging," says Donohue.

A Fox rep has responded to the criticism by saying "the Stooges have proved over time, laughter is a universal medicine. The nuns that Mr. Donohue alludes to, are in fact, caring, heroic characters in the movie, albeit within the framework of a very broad comedy."

Where do you stand on this issue? Should the Catholic League be angry?

Amanda Bynes may have been arrested for DUI in early April, but the actress isn't letting that legal hiccup get in the way of her Hollywood partying!

The troubled star - friends say Bynes has been lost for years - drove herself to hot spot Greystone Manor last night, where she was photographed texting behind the wheel... prior to backing her car over a curb in a red zone!

See for yourself:

  • Amanda Bynes at the Wheel
  • Amanda Bynes' Car

Bynes did eventually make it into the establishment, which is more than can be said for the day after her arrest.

Mere hours after the actress was released on bail following her drunk driving incident, she was denied access at THE SAME BAR she had frequented the evening before. At the very least, someone should tell Amanda to text a cab next time.

Kate Major has called the police on her former lover Michael Lohan, claiming he violated his restraining order, which he claims is totally untrue ... again.

This is the April 12, 2012 edition of this oft-repeated story.

Law enforcement sources say crazy Kate called the Delray Beach, Fla., police, claiming Lohan had shown up to a salon she was at (a violation of the current protective order against him) and started furiously banging on the glass windows.

  • Kate Major Mug Shot
  • Michael Lohan's Mug Shot

Police arrived, but by that point, MiLo had already split ... apparently he did not get stuck in a tree trying to flee the cops this time. We think.

Michael's side of the story is that Kate actually invited him to the salon in the first place, so that she could borrow money for him ... allegedly.

Mike says Kate has been seriously involved with him recently and that the two have been secretly living together in spite of the restraining order.

Law enforcement sources say police took Kate Major's statement when they showed up to the salon and have also spoke to MiLo as well.

The Florida State Attorney's Office will decide if charges will be filed and ML makes yet another contribution to our celebrity mug shots album.

Screenwriter Joe Eszterhas, who was collaborating with Mel Gibson on his ill-fated film The Maccabees before claiming in a letter Mel Gibson hates Jews, says he's got proof that he witnessed the latest rage-filled rants from the troubled star.Mel Gibson Smirks

His teenage son secretly recorded much of it, Eszterhas says.

"A lot of the stuff is on tape," he tells TMZ. What stuff?

Mel and Joe

He says the recordings were made in Costa Rica by his son Nick, though he would not say if the following alleged comments by Mel were captured:

  • "I want to f**k her in the ass and stab her while I'm doing it." - on his ex-girlfriend and former hate-filled rant target Oksana Grigorieva
  • "He's a c**t Jewboy." - on William Morris/Endeavor Chairman Ari Emanuel
  • "I'm glad he's dead. He deserved to be shot." - on John Lennon

In the letter to Mel written after The Maccabees fell apart, Joe wrote that his son recorded Me on his iPhone, but did not say how much, other than "a lot."

Joe also says people who allegedly witnessed Mel's rants are willing to come forward. As for The Maccabees script that Warner Bros. rejected, Joe said: "I'm heartbroken. I put my heart and soul into a script for someone who hates Jews. He needs help. Badly."
