(Newser) – Reports of Ed McMahon’s ill health have been greatly exaggerated, Perez Hilton reports, quoting a rep who said the nearly-86-year-old “is alive and kicking, and is in fact amused by rumors of his demise.” More from the crazy world of gossip:

  • Do-gooder Brad Pitt is meeting with Nancy Pelosi today, People reports, to discuss a project aimed at building “affordable and environmentally-sustainable housing” in New Orleans.

  • A faux Toni Braxton in Suriname ignited a riot when concert attendees realized she wasn’t the real thing, TMZ reports. Toni’s rep says the real singer is “displeased” by the hoax.
  • Milk scribe Dustin Lance Black annoyed everyone by toting his Oscar statuette to a birthday party and “showing it off the whole time in a really obnoxious way,” the Post reports.
  • Madonna who? Guy Ritchie seems to be in excellent spirits these days, the Mail reports, recently partying until 4:30am and belting out some impromptu karaoke.
