Honey Boo Boo’s Israeli Fan

As we learned earlier this week, Adam Levine doesn’t care much for Honey Boo Boo. But others clearly feel differently. Barbara Walters named the child beauty pageant contestant and reality TV star one of 2012’s Most Fascinating People. She also has an admirer in Adi Segal, who lives in Israel. Segal recently wrote Honey Boo Boo a letter thanking her for keeping everyone cheery while rockets were flying in from Gaza. It appears to be a gag letter, but Honey Boo Boo was very obliging and posted a photo of herself holding the letter and the inflatable hammer decorated with an Israeli flag that Segal sent her.

It looks as though there is nothing that Fran Drescher does not carry in her purse. Take a look and see.

Here’s an engaging video of the talented and lovely Kate Hudson and Lea Michele battling it out to “All That Jazz” on “Glee.”

And here’s a music video of a completely different genre. Drake teams up with A$AP Rocky, 2 Chainz and Kendrick Lamar for “F–kin’ Problems.” It’s not to everybody’s taste.

Sarah Michelle Gellar reunited with her “Buffy” co-star David Boreanaz at a holiday event in L.A. benefiting L.A. Family Housing, an organization that helps families transition out of homelessness and poverty. Tori Spelling was there en famille, as well.

The first ever comedy issue of Vanity Fair, guest edited by Judd Apatow, hits newsstands in January. Here’s a sneak peek at one version of the cover featuring Paul Rudd and the rest of the cast of Apatow’s new film “This Is 40.” There are two other versions of the cover—one with Maya Rudolph, Jim Carrey, Amy Poehler and Will Ferrel; the other with Kristen Wiig, Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, and Jerry Seinfeld.

“New Girl” parodies abound. First there was “Jew Girl,” now there is “Old Girl”—featuring a grouchy retiree named Muriel Rosenberg who is not at all like the “adorkable” Zooey Deschanel.
