Crack Open the Bubbly, Downton Abbey's Back

The first trailer for Season 5 of Downton Abbey has been released, and it looks like things are really heating up.

There's kissing and more naughtiness. An attempt to drag the folks at the Abbey into more modern times (but not so modern that they have plastic water bottles - not yet, anyway).

There's most of the familiar characters - and some new ones sprinkled in for good measure.

The season premieres in England on September 21. Diehard Downtonites who rely on PBS to get their weekly does of The Abbey will have to wait until January.

But, there's this thing called the internet, and if one is resourceful, one can certainly find all the Downton one needs well before the new year, eh, what?

Home Depot Hacked

Everybody's getting hacked these days.

The latest victim appears to be the do-it-yourselfer's paradise, Home Depot.

The retail chain announced yesterday that it was looking into reports that some of its customer data had been stolen and was being offered for sale on the internet.

Not good.

Lowe's responded immediately by changing it's slogan from "Never Stop Improving" to "Never Gave Up Your Data."

And I have to admit that given the celebrity selfie hacks over the weekend, I was a little scared to look further into the Home Depot situation.

Seriously, the last thing anyone wants to see are naked, um, plumbing shots of Gary in Appliances...

Britney Currently Available

There were rumors flying everywhere all last week that Britney Spears' now ex-boyfriend had cheated on her.

Video of her ex kissing another woman allegedly surfaced, and that was that.

During a concert in Vegas over the weekend, Britney grabbed the bull by the horns, and announced to her fans, "Well, by now everyone knows my boyfriend cheated on me."

She seems to be handling the end of the 17-month relationship well.Ahhhh the single life! She says she's on the hunt for a really hot guy, and told her audience, "The best thing about your boyfriend cheating on you is that you get to go on another first date!"

The Biebs Rapping Again - Rap Sheet, That Is

Justin Bieber is fast becoming Public Enemy Number One.

TMZ reports that while he was vacationing in Ontario with Selena Gomez, he was arrested for driving his ATV into a van filled with photographers.

It all happened last Friday - allegedly, of course - and after the crash, there was a physical altercation as well.

The Biebs was arrested for dangerous driving and assault. He was released, but has a court date later in the month.

On its own, this might not be that big a deal. But add in the fact that he's still on probation for his infamous egging incident in LA, this could be real trouble for him.

Might be time for him to start brushing up on some jailhouse blues.

Daddy, What's a Typewriter?

Do you miss the sound of a typewriter?

Do you even know what a typewriter sounded like?

For those who went straight into the relatively silent era of keyboarding and completely missed the day of the typewriter - a frequently monstrous contraption that made a lot of noise as you pecked out the letters and dinged when you got to the end of the line so you could hit a lever that moved your paper back to a start point and began a new line - Tom Hanks has just the thing for you

Yes, that Tom Hanks. He invented an app for the iPad that mimics the look and sound of an old-style typewriter. The app is called Hanx Writer, and on the day it was introduced, it hit Number One.
If you feel like Tom, the app is free, so go grab it. There are optional features you can pay for, but if you just want to hear clackity-clack when you're writing away, get it now.

Zelda's Back, with a Message

Shortly after her father Robin's death, Zelda Williams decided to take a break from social media. When she left, she wasn't sure how long she'd be gone, but she did say that maybe it would be forever.

She'd had enough. While there were plenty of Robin's fans offering their thoughts and prayers to Zelda and her brothers, there were plenty more how had horrible things to say about the comedian and the manner of his death.

Yesterday, Zelda returned to Twitter and Tumblr. She quoted Harvey Fierstein - one of Robin's Mrs. Doubtfire co-stars - almost apologizing for letting the bullies win.

A powerful statement. And hopefully, a lesson learned for all of us...

Brangelina's Wedding Album - People Magazine Has It

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie said they wouldn't get married until everyone could get married. But it looks like they relaxed that standard a little bit.

It's old news now that they got married secretly in France a week or so ago. Now the news is that many of their wedding pictures can be seen in the latest edition of People Magazine.

All of their kids participated in the wedding, according to reports. Their two oldest sons walked mom down the aisle. Two of the girls tossed flower petals. And the other two children were ring bearers. Plus, Angelina had her dress designer sew artwork by the kids into her wedding veil.

Brad, who wore a suit out of his closet – why spring for a tuxedo, right? – but ended up having to borrow a tie from his son.

The magazine hits the newsstands tomorrow. So plan to spend a little extra time in the checkout line at the market, checking out the photos.

Meanwhile, you can check out this selection from Instagram, posted the day of the wedding.

Carrie Underwood Goes to the Dogs

When some people let the world know they're with child, they do it simply. A phone call to their parents, perhaps an announcement card in the mail, maybe even a simple email or Facebook message.

If you're Carrie Underwood, that's far too mundane.

The Queen of Country took to Twitter yesterday to announce that she and hubby Mike Fisher are expecting their first child in the spring of 2015.

And how did she do it?

By dressing up her two dogs in T-shirts that announced they were going to be a big brother and a big sister and posing with them. And they made the announcement in honor of "Labor" Day.

Get it? Because labor is the way pregnancy usually ends, while pushing the new child – in this case, sibling to a couple of canines – out into the world.

Just Call Me Kendall

Kendall Jenner is no longer using her surname. She's going simply by Kendall.

This isn't anything new, she says. It's just that the media picked up on it recently, that's all.

She's been simply Kendall for about a year now, to make things easier for her as she embarks on a modeling and acting career.

When she was burdened by the surname, it came with the Jenner-Kardashian baggage. "People didn't want to take a chance on me," she told Teen Vogue, "I think because I was sort of known."

Not so much that she was known – just that she was known to be part of the Kardashian Klan.

Of course, she's still Instagramming like a Kardashian…

A Kim Trim

Kim Kardashian trimmed about three inches of her hair over the weekend.

Her fans are probably camped out near her mansion, hoping that the Santa Ana winds will blow a lock or two their way.

A treasured keepsake, for sure.

Someone's going to have to explain to me why a Kardashian haircut qualifies as news.

Right after you explain to me why I'm writing this…
