No more late nights, Arsenio
CBS has canceled a second season of “The Arsenio Hall Show,” citing a major decline in ratings, vulture.com reported Friday.

The people's Mariah
Songstress Mariah Carey may be richer than anyone you know, but she’s not too full of herself to get down and ride with the little people on the New York City subways. Page Six reports that Carey, who’s 44 or 45 (sources differ), rode the West Side No. 1 train early Friday morning after the Fresh Air Fund’s Spring Gala at the Chelsea Piers. Carey posted two pictures of the escapade on Instagram, titling one, “Glimpses of our joyride on the 1 train #subwayincouture.”
English supermodel Kelly Brook, 34, appears to have married her strapping ex-royal marine, the 27-year-old actor, model and fitness guru David McIntosh. Also employing Instagram to spread the apparent news, Brook posted an image Thursday of the two of them on the Eurostar luxury train to Paris, writing, “Look how happy my husband looks :).” She also referred cryptically to “wedding celebrations.” The two met just last New Year’s, broke up on Valentine’s Day, and then acknowledged they were engaged last month.
He used to be one of Hollywood’s leading heartthrobs, but now, thank you very much, he’s just a farmer with a multi-million-dollar estate in Provence, France. Getting dirt under his fingernails and apparently loving it is Brad Pitt, 50, who bought the Miraval Estate with live-in squeeze Angelina Jolie, 38,in 2012. “I’m a farmer now,” Pitt tells the Wine Spectator. “I love learning about the land and which field is most suitable for which grape, the drama of September and October: Are we picking today? Where are the sugar levels? It’s been a schooling for me.” Pitt and Jolie must be doing something right. Their first vintage, the Côtes de Provence Rosé Miraval, won plaudits as one of the world’s best wines.
Jennifer Lopez calls her new music video, “First Love,” nothing more than “sweet and sexy,” according to People.com, though some might prefer “breathtakingly steamy.” In it, the curvaceous 44-year-old superstar cozies up to the requisite chiseled hunk, who sheds his clothes quicker than a tree drops leaves in the fall. Lopez looks pretty good herself in an American Apparel body suit and hot-hot swimsuit by Issa De’mar. Her new album, “A.K.A.” will be released June 17.
