Now that Heidi Klum and Seal have gone belly-up the next stage is to start guessing the cause of their demise: and our first contender is Seal's allegedly "volcanic temper." Blabbermouth sources ran straight to TMZ and told them that the couple are splitting because he gets a case of the Hulk-like rages and she doesn't want that around their kids. They also threw in the old chestnut of Heidi being more successful than Seal and him not being able to hack it. All this is great and all but they didn't answer the question that's really on our minds: Who gets custody of their epic Halloween parties? [TMZ]

The Hills fans will be excited to know that Kristin Cavallari is expecting a kid – the rest of us will remain ambivalent. Giving it an extra dollop of the whatevers, the reality star and her guy Jay Cutler ran straight out and told the tabloids: "We are thrilled to announce we are expecting our first child together. It's an amazing time in our life and we can't wait to meet the new addition to our growing family." Still, let's hope the pregnancy is happy and healthy. Just do us a solid and keep the bump pimpin' to a minimum. [People]

Sharon Stone kept it light during a recent interview with AARP, explaining how she felt she'd never be pretty again following her brain hemorrhage in 2001 and backing it up with talk of the two miscarriages during her marriage to Phil Bronstein. Poor love, what a depressing interview. "I came out of the hospital with short- and long-term memory loss. My lower left leg was numb. I couldn't hear out of my right ear," she said. "I thought, 'I'll never be pretty again. Who's going to want to be around me?'" [NYDN]

That George Lucas interview has been kicking around for about two weeks now and is an example of George being crazy and paranoid more than anything else. In it he also claims that Hollywood is out to get him, that he's going to close down Skywalker Ranch and only make small indie art films from now on and that he's tired of being treated like shit by everyone in the industry.

People in the industry have pointed out that the factors that led them to not finance this film have zero to do with the black cast, but much to do with several things:

1. They thought the script, particularly the dialogue, was not very good.

2. The fact that for nearly three decades every George Lucas film that did not have the words "Star Wars" or "Indiana Jones" in the title has lost money for the investors, so why would they want to place a bet on him breaking that track record?

3. That "A George Lucas Film" test markets about as well as "A M. Night Shyamalan Film."

4. That George has access to more than enough money to have financed the film himself, and if he wasn't willing to risk his money on the film why should they risk theirs? (The cost of the film is roughly equal to the revenue he got from Blu-Ray sales of the Star Wars trilogy this Christmas.)

And lets be honest, Lucas is a guy who has had exactly one black character in his most famous film trilogy (and that character isn't portrayed in the most positive light.)

The idea of this rich white guy with nearly unlimited funds bitching that the studios are racist because they wouldn't fund one of his films is laughable.

If he went to the studios and said he wanted to make "Star Wars Episode 7: Lando Strikes Black" and set it on Lando's planet with an all black cast he'd have had every producer in Hollywood giving him money.

I mean, I'm sorry, his film didn't get funded because he has a bad track record and nobody thought the script was marketable. This it. That's not racism. That's business.
