    Jimmy Fallon: "We Had A Surrogate"

    Amidst the royal baby mania, Jimmy Fallon was able to quietly welcome his first baby into the world, and in a surprising announcement on TODAY, he revealed she was born via surrogate. Daughter Winnie Rose's birthday is just one day after the royal baby's, and she was appropriately dubbed NBC's "Princess Winnie" by TODAY's Al Roker. Fallon gushes about his new baby girl in a heart-warming interview set to air next week on TODAY.

    Daft Punk Bails On Colbert

    Determined to not let Daft Punk's canceled performance ruin his "Colbchella," Stephen Colbert fired back in true comedic fashion. He produced his own hilarious music video of the techno group's summer hit "Get Lucky," with help from some famous friends, of course. Everyone from Jimmy Fallon to Hugh Laurie to former Secretary of State Henry Kissenger make an appearance in this must-see viral video.

    Beyonce Chops It Off

    Seems that the Grammy-winning superstar is taking her "If I Were A Boy" lyrics quite literally. Mrs. Carter was seen looking fierce and fabulous sporting a super short blonde pixie cut in Instagram photos. Work it queen Bey!

    Joy Behar Leaves "The View"

    ABC's "The View" is losing another longtime member on Friday: host Joy Behar. The 70-year-old is the last of orignal hosts to say farewell, save for the show's creator Barbara Walters who is set to retire from television in 2014. Friday's star studded bon voyage episode highlights Behar's 16-year run with "The View" and includes appearances from Tony Bennett, Joan Rivers and Regis Philbin.

    Saleswoman Tells Oprah, "You Won't Be Able To Afford That"

    The word no is probably something Forbes "Most Powerful Celebrity" Oprah Winfrey is not used to hearing. But on a recent trip to Switzerland, the former talk show host said she was told exactly that. Winfrey said that while shopping in Zurich, she was a victim of racism when a saleswoman refused to show her a handbag in the store, calling it "too expensive" for the media mogul who has earned a reported $77 million over the last year.

    Manning Bros Rap Their Way To TV Commercial Fame

    NFL quarterbacks Eli and Peyton Manning can both add a new skill to their resumes: rapping. In a new commercial for DirecTv's mobile football-watching app "Sunday Ticket," the brothers make their hip-hop debut rocking some seriously ridiculous wigs and singing a surprisingly catchy rap, "Football On Your Phone." Check it out to also see an appearance by the footballers celebrity dad Archie Manning. The family that raps together, stays together, right?

    Amanda Bynes Under Parental Supervision

    The former child star's head-scratching behavior -- from a bong throwing incident to an impromptu driveway fire -- forced a legal intervention on Friday. A judge granted Amanda Bynes' mother temporary conservatorship, which allows her to control decisions about her daughter's health and finances. The 27-year-old actress who is currently receiving mental health treatment recently received public support from former "All That" castmate Nick Cannon who told Bynes he's "only a phone call away." Maybe it's time Amanda takes him up on the offer.

    Usher's Son Survives Near-Drowning

    Usher spoke out to thank the two men who saved his son from the R&B singer's pool at his Atlanta home on Monday. The 5-year-old boy was underwater trying to retrieve a toy in the pool when his arm got stuck in a drain. After his aunt and housekeeper failed to rescue him, two male contracters working in the house successfully saved him from nearly drowning. The boy is recovering at a hospital in Atlanta, while his mom and Usher's ex-wife attempts to claim temporary primary custody of her two sons.

    Dustin Hoffman Beats Cancer

    The two-time Oscar winning actor responded positively to treatment for cancer and has been "surgically cured," according to his rep, who also added that Hoffman is "feeling great." The 75-year-old actor who made his major movie debut in 1967's "The Graduate" isn't slowing down -- he's set to star alongside Judi Dench in a movie version of Roald Dahl's Esio Trot.
