Hollywood Headlines: A crazy week in review

Gavin DeGraw is on the mend after being attacked and beaten in New York. If that wasn’t bad enough, the “I Don’t Wanna Be” singer was hit by a cab after the scuffle. The whole ordeal unfolded around 4 a.m. after DeGraw parted ways with some drinking buddies in New York’s East Village and left him with a concussion, broken nose, black eyes, cuts and bruises.  (Frank Franklin II / Associated Press)
The Palin family has a new addition, baby Kyla Grace. The little tyke is the daughter of Sarah Palin‘s son Track and his wife Britta, who married in June. The Palins are keeping quiet about the baby news (no rogue Tweets from Nana Palin), but Kyla’s maternal grandmother Elizabeth Hanson did tell Radar Online, “Kyla Grace is great. She’s beautiful.”

George Lopez got his walking papers from TBS this week, bringing an end to his late-night talk show “Lopez Tonight.” The comedian will surely land on his feet, with lots of big plans lined up after the show. He told the “Lopez” audience on Wednesday, “like every TV star before me, I’m gonna find some crack. I’m gonna get on the pipe. Lose that unwanted 110 pounds I’ve been wanting to lose.”  (Jason Szenes / EPA)
Don’t hold your breath for a muppet marriage between Bert and Ernie -- it’s not gonna happen, even if gay marriage is legal in New York.

Kanye West just can’t stop putting his foot in his mouth. This time the controversial singer told a crowd of 40,000 at England’s Big Chill Festival that he can relate to Hitler. “I walk through the hotel and I walk down the street, and people look at me like I’m ... insane, like I’m Hitler. One day the light will shine through, and one day people will understand everything I ever did.” One day, but for now, they are just booing.  (Abdeljalil Bounhar / Associated Press)
News of a “Dirty Dancing” remake was met with a resounding groan, but director Kenny Ortega (who choreographed the original) has at least one fan on his side: Jennifer Grey. The actress, who played Baby opposite Patrick Swayze‘s Johnny in the film, tweeted, “I love @Kennyortega and trust that he will do something special #DirtyDancingRemake.” Of course, a reboot of the wildly successful love story of a sheltered teen who falls for a dancer while on vacation can’t be all bad.

The haters have spoken, and if there is one person America can’t stand, it is Casey Anthony.

A first look at Anne Hathaway in her “Dark Knight Rises” Catwoman suit left fans lukewarm, but the actress urges Batman devotees to stop their worrying. “What I am happy to say is, if you didn’t like the photo, you only see about a tenth of what that suit can do,” she promised. “And if you did like the photo, you have excellent taste.”  (Warner Bros.)
