Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka on OutNeil Patrick Harris can't wait to marry partner David Burtka.

The How I Met Your Mother star has been engaged to the chef for over five years and the actor is eager to tie the knot because he wants to be able to call David his "husband." The 38-year-old actor - who has 15-month-old twins Gideon and Harper with David - told Out, "I'm not the biggest fan of the word 'partner.' It either means that we run a business together or we're cowboys. 'Boyfriend' seems fleeting, like maybe we met two weeks ago. I've been saying 'better half' for as long as I've been able to. I think it's a little self-deprecating and clearly defines that we're in a relationship, but it would be nice to say 'my husband.'"

Neil also admits he and David have their ups and downs like any other couple: "Sometimes I'm deeply in love with David and head-over-heels, and sometimes I question whether it's going to work out and is meant to be. It's more good times than bad, but it's not always good."

It does nothing but make me laugh, it's great."


Channing TatumChanning Tatum once rescued a female driver who was stranded by the side of the road. The Dear John star was driving to an interview in Los Angeles, but stopped when he saw a woman trying to push her car down a dangerous exit ramp. He stopped, telling the woman, "The car's smoking. Maybe it's on fire."

Noticing that the lady had a child in the back of her car, who turned out to be her grandson, he got him out of the vehicle, before trying to find out what was wrong with the car and calling a tow truck company. The actor's chauffer was able to make some rudimentary repairs to the car, which would be enough for the driver to make it to the next service station, and Channing gave the lady $100 to help cover the cost of the repair.

"Get it fixed. Go fix it now. Don't get stuck out here again. Take it slow. Put on your flashers," he told the lady, according to his interview in next month's Details.

LeAnn Rimes' tattoo in honor of her husbandLeAnn Rimes has had a tribute to her husband tattooed on her foot. The country singer has had the words "The only one that matters," inked on the top of her right foot after being inspired by a conversation she had with spouse Eddie Cibrian.

"I'm addicted to words & sayings that mean something special to me. Eddie said to me 'You're the only one that matters so....' (sic) I was surprised that it was not painful at all. Maybe when you really want something it doesn't hurt as bad (sic)," she wrote on her Twitter.

LeAnn, 29, married Eddie in April last year and has previously had body art celebrating their union, with a temporary tattoo inspired by the vows he made to her at their wedding. The tattoo, on her ribcage, read, "You gave me the courage to be truthful. I promise to give you the comfort to be trustful."

Lindsay LohanLindsay Lohan was praised by the judge during her court hearing on Wednesday.

The actress - who has been working at the Los Angeles County Morgue as part of her sentence for breaking her probation in relation to a 2007 DUI (driving under the influence) case - received a positive report from Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner, who had been in touch with the morgue and probation department.

"I'm pleased to say she's done it all. Just keep doing what you're doing, you appear to be doing it well. The probation officer has written a favorable report, as has the volunteer center," Sautner told her.

Lindsay has certainly been adhering to the terms of her probation and completed the last month's carefully parsed-out requirements, which include the completion of 12 more days of community service at the morgue, four psychotherapy sessions and meeting with her probation officer. At the start of the hearing, Sautner announced Lindsay's next court date would be postponed one week - to February 22 - because the court is busy on February 17.

Bruno Mars in courtBruno Mars' cocaine possession charge was dismissed by a judge on Wednesday.

The "Grenade" singer - who was arrested in Las Vegas in September 2010 after being caught with the substance in the toilets of the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino - will have the case officially wiped from his criminal record after pleading guilty back in January 2011.

At the time, the judge presiding over the case ruled the 26-year-old star should pay a fine of $2,000, complete 200 hours of community service and undertake drug education classes. However, Bruno - who previously admitted he "did a foolish thing and has never used drugs before" the incident - has now exceeded the amount of required community service after logging more than 230 hours working for children's and health-related charities, TMZ.com reports.

Blair Berk, the singer's lawyer, appeared in court on his behalf to see the charge officially dismissed. After initially hearing the charges would be dismissed, the "Just The Way You Are" hitmaker - born Peter Hernandez - explained he was "appreciative" that he wouldn't be convicted for possession. "Bruno is very appreciative he is being given this opportunity as a first offender not to suffer any conviction and instead to have his charge dismissed. He is taking all of this quite seriously," Mr. Berk said at the time.

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar OdomKhloe Kardashian is reportedly seeing fertility experts in a bid to get pregnant. The reality TV star - who has made no secret of her desire to have a baby with her husband of two years, Lamar Odom - has been researching top specialists in Dallas, Texas, following her and Lamar's move there late last year.

"Khloe has been meeting with fertility doctors in Dallas, and Lamar has been going with her to several appointments. It makes sense for her to have a fertility doctor in Dallas, as well as Los Angeles. Khloe very much wants to have a baby with Lamar, and their inability to get pregnant has had its rough moments, but this has only made their relationship stronger," said a source close to Khloe, who underwent treatment in her home town of Los Angeles.

The couple - who moved to Dallas after basketball star Lamar was traded to the Dallas Mavericks from the Los Angeles Lakers in December - are also keen to show their baby struggle on their reality TV show so fans can know what's going on.

Tyra BanksTyra Banks has a new boyfriend.

The America's Next Top Model host is said to be smitten with the mystery man after meeting him on a "spiritual break" in Bali, which she went on to get over her split from long-term boyfriend John Utendahl. "It's a total long-distance romance. But it's a big deal," a source told People.

Tyra met her beau on her trip around Bali last month and after flying home to New York, she turned right around and flew back to Bali to spend the Christmas holidays with him. Tyra separated from banker John in December after three years together and decided to seek solace in the Far East with a female friend. "Tyra has gone away with a female friend and has been island-hopping, visiting Bali and taking a spiritual retreat," a source said.

News of the couple's split comes as a shock as earlier this year Tyra admitted she wanted to have a baby. "I definitely want babies," the former supermodel said.


Avril Lavigne and Brody JennerAvril Lavigne and Brody Jenner have reportedly split up.

The singer and the reality TV star - who had been dating for almost two years - have decided to call time on their relationship because they couldn't agree on their future. "They decided to end their relationship. It wasn't working out, and they wanted to go their separate ways. She wanted to settle down, but he wasn't exactly ready. They had been having problems starting in the summer with her tour because she was on the road all the time. It put a strain on their relationship," a source told Life & Style.

Avril - who was previously married to Sum 41 rocker Deryck Whibley - recently said she would marry again as she wanted to start a family: "It's all about love and I make that my number one priority. One day I would hope to have kids and do that whole thing. Right now I'm very focused on my career, my album, my tour and naturally when that happens for me next, yeah I'll go for it."
