1. Chuck Norris is selling his Walker, Texas Ranger ranch

2. Justin Bieber's mom doesn't want to talk about Justin Bieber
Pattie Mallette, the mother of Canadian pop pint Justin Bieber, is currently on tour promoting her autobiography, which is being published under the clunky — but effective! — title Nowhere But Up: The Story of Justin Bieber's Mom. But if you decide to attend one of Mallette's promotional events, there's one subject that's off the table: Justin Bieber. According to Radar Online, Mallette's handlers have warned journalists not to ask her any questions about her son's recent escapades.

But if you're worried that the X-Men franchise might come to an end sometime soon, fear not; according to Jackman, he'll play Wolverine as long as "the audience still wants to see it" — and, we presume, as long as 20th Century Fox keeps bringing wheelbarrows full of money to his door.

5. Kris and Bruce Jenner joined the Mile High Club
Today, in things you'll wish you had never heard: On her talk show Kris — which remains, inexplicably, on the air — Kris Jenner recently revealed that she and Bruce Jenner have had sex on an airplane. "We decided intentionally to join the Mile High Club," said Jenner, as opposed to all the people who join it accidentally. "We thought we were so sneaky," added Jenner, whose definition of "sneaky" apparently includes "talking about it on national television." [Us Weekly]
