Sherri Shepherd's Surrogate Gives Birth

August 6th, 2014 3:52pm EDT
Sherri Shepherd
Sherri Shepherd and estranged husband Lamar Sally's surrogate reportedly gave birth Tuesday, adding another layer to her ongoing divorce.

Shepherd and Sally married in 2011 and decided to have a child delivered via a third party. However, the surrogate was still pregnant when the two filed for separation this past May due to irreconcilable differences.

Sally has asked for complete custody of the child, according to People, and would most likely ask a judge for child support during divorce proceedings.

The story has an ugly side, as TMZ claims Shepherd believes she was defrauded via the s...

Nina Dobrev Plays Giant Beer Pong

Nina Dobrev and Jimmy Fallon
Jimmy Fallon sure loves his drinking games on The Tonight Show. After failing to play proper beer pong with Diane Keaton in April, he made the game bigger and better for last night's guest Nina Dobrev.

Using volleyballs and giant party cups (where does one buy those?), Fallon faced off against the Vampire Diaries star in a first-to-three contest. The rules were simple: Bounce the ball into a cup and your opponent has to chug a beer.

Jimmy quickly got ahead to a two-cup lead, but he got pretty cocky and began taking shots with his eyes covered. Check out the video to see if he pulled off...

Chrissy's Drunk First Pitch

Chrissy Teigen
Chrissy Teigen threw the ceremonial first pitch for the L.A. Dodgers last night, and if she appeared a little loopy it's because her dad got her drunk beforehand.

Teigen was celebrating her father's birthday earlier in the day when she tweeted to her fans at 7 PM, "Crap I'm pretty drunk" and "My mom is bombed." She then put on her jersey - #40 and the last name "Nugz." Dodgers reporter Michael Lananna revealed the jersey choice was "because '40 Nugz' is her favorite drunken food at McDonald's."

In the sketch, Jimmy is an inquisitive fellow (Helen later calls him an "Australian pantomime dame") who asks the magical Helen Mirren Mirror questions like "What do you think of Fifty Shades of Grey?" You know, hard-hitting stuff.

Mirren, who only replied in rhyme, said "The whips and chains are not my style, but who doesn’t love a jolly good spanking once in a while?" The theme ...
