■Today show co-host Billy Bush lost his job this week after the leak of a bombshell 2005 video in which he and Donald Trump carried on a lewd conversation about women. The video, shot in a van as Trump was en route to tape an Access Hollywood segment, shows Bush giggling as Trump recalled his attempt to seduce married TV host Nancy O’Dell and bragged of forcing himself on women—including “grabbing them by the p----.” When actress Arianne Zucker came to meet Trump in the studio lot, Bush called her “hot as s---” and then encouraged her to hug Trump. NBC suspended Bush and he was reported to be negotiating a separation deal with the network. “There is simply no excuse for Billy’s language and behavior,” said Today producer Noah Oppenheim. Bush, 44—a cousin of former President George W. Bush and the married father of three daughters—said he was “ashamed’’ of his behavior and that he was “less mature” at the time.
■Kim Kardashian has beefed up security after a gang of thieves robbed her of $10 million in jewelry at gunpoint in a Paris hotel. In assembling her new team, Kardashian, 35, met with Israeli army veterans and former agents of the CIA and Secret Service, TMZ.com reports. She plans to have two armed guards at all times and travel in an armored car. Kardashian will also continue to employ her main bodyguard, Pascal Duvier, who was guarding two of her sisters at a Parisian night club when the robbers broke in, tied her up with tape, and stole her jewelry.
■Brad Pitt will not face prosecution after an incident involving his estranged wife and his son aboard a private jet last month. Pitt, 52, and Angelina Jolie, 41, were flying with their six children from Nice, France, to Burbank, Calif., when they got into an argument. After their son Maddox intervened, Pitt was seen on security cameras “looking drunk” and yelling at the 15-year-old, Us Weekly reported. Jolie subsequently filed for divorce, and a tipster called authorities with allegations of child abuse that were referred to the FBI. But the agency has decided not to pursue any charges. “[Pitt] certainly could have behaved better,” a source tells the New York Daily News. “But there was no physical abuse.”
