Now Trending: Where does Chelsea Handler fit in the shifting late-night talk-show puzzle? Add to ...

CHELSEA’S CHOICE

Is CBS going to hand the hosting duties of The Late Late Show to a woman? In the wake of Stephen Colbert being named successor to The Late Show with David Letterman, the network is reportedly considering putting a female comedian into the host chair for the program that immediately follows it on their late-night schedule. CBS CEO Les Moonves alluded to the possibility during a recent interview with Bloomberg News. “Obviously we’re considering all candidates and women are among them,” said Moonves. “A woman would be great in late night.” Online speculation points to E! fixture Chelsea Handler or daytime talk host Ellen DeGeneres taking over the post-Colbert timeslot. CBS’s contract with current Late Late Show host Craig Ferguson expires later this summer.

Talk of revisiting the classic 1982 sci-fi film starring Ford as a futuristic bounty hunter has been circulating online since 2011, when original director Ridley Scott reportedly expressed interest. During his weekend Ask Me Anything chat on Reddit, Ford said he’s also keen for an update. “If in fact the opportunity would exist to do another, if it’s a good script, I would be very anxious to work with Ridley Scott again,” said Ford. “He’s a very talented and passionate filmmaker.”

GOING SMALLER

Having the world’s most famous cleavage is not always easy for Kate Upton. The 21-year-old Sports Illustrated model has shocked fans with a recent interview in which she says she wishes she had smaller breasts. “I wish I had smaller boobs every day of my life, as I would love to wear spaghetti tops bra-less or go for the smallest bikini designs,” she said in her chat with the British tabloid The Sun. In the same interview, Upton, who appears opposite Cameron Diaz in the new romantic comedy The Other Woman, also allowed, “I know I say I wish I had smaller boobs – and that’s true because at least twice a day I wish that. But the grass is always greener, as they say.”

TAX TARGET

Topping the Forbes list of highest-paid models has put Giselle Bundchen on the U.S. government’s radar. The Brazilian-born supermodel, who finished first on the magazine’s Supermodel Rich List with an estimated net worth of $42-million (U.S.), says being conspicuously rich has already made her a tax target. “I’ve already been audited by the IRS [Internal Revenue Service] because of this list,” Bundchen recently said in an interview with U.K. Vogue. “Truthfully, whether I’m on this list or not, it doesn’t interest me.” Bundchen earns most of her money through endorsement deals for clients like H&M, Chanel and Pantene.
