The Miley Roundup:

The Oxford Dictionaries added its annual crop of new words to its online database this week, one of which happens to be Miley Cyrus's favorite thing to do: twerk. The former "Hannah Montana" star has been hitting headlines all week for her raunchy MTV VMA performance, and for her the timing couldn't be better. The word is now official. Twerk, v.: dance to popular music in a sexually provocative manner involving thrusting hip movements and a low, squatting stance. Thanks Miley! (story)

Speaking of twerking, Miley posted some provocative new shots of her derriere to Twitter following her MTV performance. She also posted the artwork for her forthcoming album, "Bangerz". It's pretty bad. (story)

Miley's pal Kelly Osbourne spoke out over her VMAs performance, during which the singer had a lot of difficulty keeping her tongue in her mouth. Kelly had one thing to say about it: "put your f***ing tongue in your mouth!" Amen. (story)

Billy Ray Cyrus wouldn't discuss his little girl's performance, but he did say, "I'll always be here for Miley," during an interview with Entertainment Tonight. He cancelled an appearance on Piers Morgan's CNN talk show Tuesday night because he didn't want to talk about it yet. (story)

Following Sunday night's MTV VMAs, Miley reportedly skipped an afterparty to hit the studio with Kanye West to record a remix of his single "Black Skinhead". (story)

Finally, rounding out the Thursday morning twerk-fest, Miley and Justin Bieber are featured on Lil' Twist's new single "Twerk". Yes, really. (story)

The Morning Roundup:

Actress Valerie Harper, diagnosed with a terminal form of brain cancer earlier this year, is joining the cast of the upcoming season of "Dancing with the Stars". The star was given only three months to live by doctors, and she's defied the odds, not only surviving for five months, but beating her prognosis and staying healthy enough to compete on the show. Did we mention that she's also 74? Talk about inspirational. (story)

Former "King of Queens" star (and former Scientologist) Leah Remini is also joining the DWTS cast, along with Snooki, a Showgirl and a "Glee" star. (story)

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are reportedly headed for divorce over recent cheating allegations brough against Lamar by two women, along with the NBA star's reported hard drug habits. (story)

Catherine-Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas may be calling it quits soon. The couple is reportedly "taking a break" from each other and are separated, but neither has filed any documents in terms of a formal legal separation and neither has mentioned the "D" word. (story)
