1. James Corden temporarily banned from restaurant for 'abusive' behavior

In between showing up in all the worst movie musicals you've ever watched, James Corden somehow had time to (allegedly) terrorize a New York City restaurant. Restaurateur Keith McNally revealed on Instagram he has banned the Late Late Show host from his restaurant Balthazar in New York for allegedly being the "most abusive customer to my Balthazar servers since the restaurant opened 25 years ago." McNally cited two incidents, the first in which Corden was allegedly "extremely nasty" after finding hair in his food, and he allegedly also yelled "like crazy" at a server for messing up his order. But just hours after his original post, McNally said Corden called and "apologized profusely," so he rescinded the ban. "Anyone magnanimous enough to apologize to a deadbeat layabout like me (and my staff) doesn't deserve to be banned from anywhere," McNally said, adding, "All is forgiven." Well, the restaurant behavior is forgiven, at least. It may be years before we're ready to forgive him for Cats.
