Hollywood Headlines: A crazy week in review

Christine O’Donnell wants her own way
Christine O’Donnell bolted in the middle of a “Piers Morgan Tonight” interview Wednesday after the host peppered her with gay marriage and abstinence questions. The irritated but media-savvy “tea party” leader asked,” Don’t you think as a host that if I say that’s what I want to talk about that’s what we should address?” referring to her book. The cheeky host replied, “Not really, no.” Moments later O’Donnell split, leaving an overnight media blitz in her wake that continued through Friday. Appearing on the “Today” show, O’Donnell reiterated why she walked off.

“It was, like I said, the very inappropriate, creepy line of questioning,” she responded, alluding to Morgan’s questions about masturbation, abstinence, lust -- all issues that came up during her U.S. Senate run. But it appeared that a question about gay marriage was the one that put her over the edge and the Twitterverse abuzz.  (Rob Carr / Associated Press)
Gerard Depardieu goes ‘oui oui’ on a plane
Apparently Gerard Depardieu nearly peed his pants on a recent Paris-to-Dublin flight on City Jet airlines. When flight attendants stopped him from using the restrooms as the plane taxied to the runway for takeoff, he held tight. But when he heard the flight was delayed 20 minutes he went ahead and did his business right there in the aisle. Details are fuzzy on whether the stream was directed at the floor or into a bottle, but regardless, Depardieu was promptly escorted off the flight.  (Roberto Pfeil / Associated Press)
Anderson Cooper has a potty mouth
It turns out Anderson Cooper thought the whole Gerard Depardieu incident was pretty funny. In a pun-filled RidicuList segment on “360,” the newsman burst into a fit of giggles. He managed to get through a string of jokes about “jet streams and “In-continental airlines,” but the silver-haired fox completely lost it over “Depar-two.”

And over on Comedy Central, Stephen Colbert announced that he had discovered “Cooper’s kryptonite.”  (Adrian Sanchez-Gonzalez / AFP / Getty Images)
Abercrombie’s situation with ‘The Situation’
Abercrombie & Fitch isn’t paying the “Jersey Shore” cast to wear its duds, in fact it is willing to pay them not to. In a statement, the company cited fears that Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino’s association “could cause significant damage to our image” and is seen as “contrary to the aspirational nature of our brand.” Ouch! At least the Jersey gang will always have Ed Hardy.  (Mel Evans / Associated Press)
