For the Summer Olympics, Queen Elizabeth II has agreed to let Skyfall director Danny Boyle shoot a short film at Buckingham Palace that will end with James Bond (Daniel Craig) parachuting live into England's Olympic stadium.

The short film, entitled The Arrival, will show Bond (Craig) getting a special assignment from the Queen to launch the Olympic Games. It will play on the stadium's screens, and then Bond himself will drop from the sky.

It is not yet known if the Queen will make a cameo in the film, but it would be the cherry on top of a sundae that already includes a possible Spice Girls performance, an Olympics-themed episode of Absolutely Fabulous, and James Bond, who will be making a huge, Beyoncé-worthy entrance.

England, you are pulling out all the stops we didn't know we wanted for the Summer Olympics.

Minka Kelly must be taking the breakup with Derek Jeter really hard, because here she is making out with Wilmer Valderrama, human landing pad for young Hollywood actresses completing their fall from grace.

The two were spotted sucking face in Australia, only three months after she and Jeter were seen making out in Paris. Somewhere in between that good decision and this bad decision, she reportedly turned down Jake Gyllenhaal.

Seriously, Minka, you need to call up Blake Lively and get a lesson on dating up in Hollywood.

Supporting my theory that Greta Van Susteren ruins everything, Louis C.K. recently revealed that the Fox News commentator was pretty much the reason he pulled out of hosting the Radio & Television Congressional Correspondents Dinner.

"I wasn't going to stand there and defend something I didn't really feel like doing anyway," he told TheWrap. "I wasn't that excited about it, I didn't want to cause them problems, I didn't think it was what they invited when they hired me. And I didn't think about it much."

In an early March blog post, Van Susteren called C.K. a "pig," and suggested the media join her in a boycott of the 68th annual Congressional Correspondents Dinner.

"It was like one morning I woke up, I heard there was static," said C.K. "I'm in production, so I have no reason to be in conflict with anybody right now."

Kris Humphries won't give Kim Kardashian a divorce until the reality starlet comes clean about their supposed sham of a marriage.

"Kris wants Kim to admit to fraud, to admit the whole thing was staged for publicity, to make a public apology to him because he really wanted a marriage," a source told The New York Post.

The NBA baller reportedly turned down a hush money offer of $7 million because he wants Kardashian to fess up and stop playing the victim.

The divorce proceedings have been hampered by Humphries, who filed for an annulment based on fraud.

He wants his estranged wife to reveal more about her financial situation because he's convinced she hasn't been forthright about how much money the televised wedding earned the Kardashian clan.

A source close to Kardashian said that she never offered Humphries the $7 million, and "she just wants to move on."

Rihanna recently revealed that she would "love" the chance to play Whitney Houston in a film, and shared her personal attachment to the iconic singer's music.

"My first song that I remember falling love with was a Whitney Houston song: 'I Will Always Love You'," she told the Associated Press. "It was really inspiring and it made me develop a passion for music, so really, she's partly responsible for me being here in this industry."

Rumors of a biopic based on Houston's life circulated after her tragic death in February, often with Rihanna's name attached. Although it was only talk, the "What's My Name?" singer said she would like to take on the role.

"That would be something that I would have to give my entire life to do, because I would really want to pull it off," said Rihanna. "That's a huge, huge role and whoever does it has to do a good job."
