Some people think NBC dissed Olympic sweetheart Gabby Douglas by airing a promo with a monkey doing gymnastics. Was this racism ... or is everyone just getting way too sensitive?

Plus, the story we broke -- 'Bachelorette' star Kasey Kahl busted and accused of dishing out a nightclub beating while high on paint thinner! You gotta hear Kasey's explanation for this crazy arrest.

And Cuba Gooding Jr.'s run-in with a bartender -- cops are dropping the whole thing, but our video of the incident raises some new questions.
