Chris Rock would prefer if his children did NOT keep up with the Kardashians.

"My kids are watching reality TV now," the comedian said this weekend at the premiere of his new movie, Top Five, at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Which shows in particular? Two that feature many poor role models.

"My kids are obsessed with Dance Moms, and also the Kardashians," Rock said. "But I'm trying to stop them from doing too much of that."

A few weeks ago, Justin Verlander gave a baseball to girlfriend Kate Upton, who was seated in the first row behind the Detroit Tigers dugout.

The following video, meanwhile, isn't nearly as sexy. But it's similarly sweet.

On Thursday, Chris Rock took in a New York Yankees game alongside actor Bobby Cannavale. And just as the announcers were talking about the star, a foul ball came his way.

As you can see here, Rock corralled the item and handed it to a young fan, making him a candidate for "public office," as announcer Michael Kay joked...

... but did he really catch the ball?

When you're a kid, a shared love of Ninja Turtles is all it takes to forge a lifelong friendship.

Sometimes it seems like it's the same way with celebrities. Stars who have nothing in common other than wealth and fame often form bonds that baffle us plebeians.

Sure, money and power tend to break down a lot of social barriers (Mick Jagger has been knighted by the Queen of England. 'Nuff said.), but even that explanation can't help us wrap our heads around some of the stranger sets of celeb-besties:

Gwyneth Paltrow and Jay Z
Gwyneth claims she's tight with Jay. Right. We're sure they do the most gangsta yoga together.

Some of these pairings aren't so shocking when you consider their backstories (Jonah Hill has a history of stalking his A-list co-stars, so it's no surprise he latched on to Brad Pitt).

Others, we're not sure we totally believe. (Gwyneth Paltrow and Jay Z? Right, keep trying to sell us on that one, Gwinnie.)

Eminem's new album will feature Chris Rock, it looks like.

The comedian has finally broken his silence on his rumored trip to the studio with the rap icon, though we're still in the dark about what they're working on.

Rock let the cat out of the bag with this surprising pic:

Eminem, Chris Rock

"Yeah, yeah, but money does that," Chris jokingly said when an interviewer said Eminem looked younger in the photo. "I'm 65, man! [laughs]"

"Money is the best lotion in the world. [What were we doing?] I can't really say. I'm just saying, hey, you know, I've been on, hey, hey, I was on the Kanye record."

"Maybe I'm on the Eminem record. You never know!"

Listen up, white voters of America. Chris Rock is sending you a message.

Are you looking for a Presidential candidate that shares your values, hobbies and... well... skin color? If so, the name on your ballot this Tuesday should be obvious: Barack Obama!

The man was known as Barry for much of his life ("the third whitest name on Earth!"); he bowls; he dances with Ellen; he wears mom jeans.

And, unlike Mitt Romney, his family doesn't have more members in it than a Tyler Perry movie. Watch this hilarious endorsement now:

So, who are you voting for?

In wishing people a Happy White People's Day July 4, Chris Rock stirred up debate and sparked controversy as many accused the outspoken comedian of racism.

On Independence Day, the star fired off the following tweet: “Happy white peoples independence day the slaves weren’t free but I’m sure they enjoyed fireworks.”

Predictably, some people went absolutely ballistic.

Rock is, of course, 100 percent correct in noting that black people in America were kept as slaves and treated horribly - for nearly a century after 1776, no less.

This is accepted as fact and with shame by almost everyone, but the Tweet struck a nerve with many who seem to really hate black people mentioning slavery.

Nearly 150 years after the Emancipation Proclamation, so-called “reverse racism” achieves little and widens our divisions, or so the common argument goes.

Wrote one non-fan: “Chris Rock says ‘happy white people’s independence day.’ Racist lefties keep throwing gas on the fire to keep the hate alive. #tcot #loser”

That may be partially true, but it's also silly to think that if you stopped mentioning it, or acknowledging it did exist and still exists, that it would cease to.

He's also just a comedian having fun, so people probably shouldn't get TOO fired up one way or the other, but it clearly remains a pretty sensitive topic.

What do you think of Chris Rock's Tweet?

Chris Rock absolutely roasted Chris Brown on the Today Show Thursday in an off-the-cuff bit that left Matt Lauer, Al Roker and Elmo at a loss for words.

As Matt was coming back from commercial, he referenced the lovely New York City weather, which he hopes holds up for Brown's concert Friday.

"We're hoping the same kind of weather hits us tomorrow when we've got Chris Brown out on the plaza," said Lauer. And then this happened:

Rock, of course, never lets a good domestic violence joke go to waste.

"Did you say you hope the same weather HITS you? I hope some weather doesn't SMACK us upside the head," the comedian joked, making an obvious reference to Chris Brown's signature career achievement, beating the heck out of Rihanna.

The entire Today crew couldn't contain their laughter, which is especially funny when you consider that Brown is performing on the show tomorrow.

Sorry, Team Breezy, but there's just no defending your man anymore.

David Letterman tells jokes at others' expense for a living. This week, he got a taste of his own medicine from a worthy comedic adversary, Chris Rock.

Suffering from both a hoarse voice and a cold, Letterman gave Rock ample material for mercilessly mocking the talk show host's messy personal life.

"Dave, what the hell happened to your voice?" he asked. "You sound like an old ass man. You're still doing the show? You're rich, you could go home!"

Then Rock joked in reference to Regina Lasko: "Wife still mad at you, ain't she? I get it. Why drive back to Connecticut? Just do the show with no voice!"

Chris Rock turns the tables on Letterman.

Letterman took it in stride, and Rock later noted: "I've been there, man ... When I'm on the road, I just add on shows! We're doin' Roanoke tonight!"

Rock then continued his barrage, saying Dave "fired all the cute girls" that used to be backstage. Now it's just "a bunch of fat old guys," he lamented.

Of course, Letterman had a comeback, "some of them are starting to look pretty good." Follow the jump for some clips from the amusing exchange ...

Chris Rock can't get a major nutjob off his back.

Despite DNA tests proving he is not the father of Kali Bowyer’s child, she is moving forward with a book that still claims the boy is Chris Rock's.

In the press release Kali Bowyer circulated for her upcoming book, Hollywood Child, she she had “a hot affair with racy comedian Chris Rock.”

Her life, according to the release, “started crashing down all around her,” until “getting pregnant with Chris’ son saved her life.”

Rock’s attorney said, “There is a final judgement. This is not Chris Rock’s child. It’s been fully litigated, and that includes DNA testing.”

Kali Bowyer

Kali Bowyer? Not normal. No, really, she's nuts. TMZ is reporting that she has a history of trying to run scams - and she apparently really sucks at it!

From 2005-present, she has been convicted of DUI in Georgia, charged with theft by deception, facing charges of running an elaborate cellphone scam, writing bad checks, and causing several domestic disturbances. Ouch.

She also once claimed to be kidnapped and force to take some white powder, but that story got messed up when they asked her son what happened.

Chris Rock never stood a chance.

Last night - at Madonna's benefit to raise awareness/money for the plight of those in Malawi with AIDS - the comedian attempted to walk right past Rihanna. He failed.

Rihanna: Hot!

A celebrity gossip photographer caught Rock in full ogling mode. But can you really blame the guy?

Pssst, Chris: visit The Hollywood Gossip at any time to check out photos of Rihanna nude! That way, you can drool away in private.
