Zhao Wei Sued For Staring: Lawsuit Claims Chinese Actress's Inte
Chinese actress Zhao Wei (also known as Vicki Zhao) is being sued for staring at someone through a TV screen. According to The Associated Press, the lawsuit claims that Zhao's character on the Chinese TV series "Tiger Mom" stares too intently at the viewer.

Why Is Jon Gosselin Seeking Custody Of One Daughter, But Not The
Jon Gosselin's fed up with his current custody arrangement- the former "Jon and Kate Plus 8" star will be seeking to gain custody of his child from ex-wife Kate Gosselin, reports Us Weekly.
