Celebs are buzzing about Pope Benedict XVI stepping down -- and about the fact the next Pontiff could be ... BLACK! Is this the final frontier for minorities everywhere -- and would Catholics around the world embrace the change?

Plus, Rihanna and Chris Brown had some high times after the Grammys, and we got the video! Witnesses say they were smoking weed in a nightclub ... which is one thing, but driving home after is another.

And, supermodel Miranda Kerr's breast controversy! Okay, that's a slight exaggeration -- but she did unwittingly expose a surprising truth about her body ... and her bras.

(0:00) Pope Benedict XVI is stepping down -- and there's a chance the next Pope could be Black! The big question ... how would Catholics react?
(7:00) Charlie Sheen pleads with alleged murderer Christopher Dorner ... call me.
(10:00) Chris Brown ... allegedly smokes weed at a club then drives home ... and gets into a wreck this weekend and blames paparazzi. It never stops with this guy.
(14:15) Are all the James Bonds going to make an appearance at the Oscars? Not likely ... because Pierce Brosnan hints that he's not on board.
(18:00) Lil Wayne is being sued by a guy who says someone in the rapper's entourage hit him with a skateboard -- the alleged victim calls in to state his case. 
(24:00) Jamie Foxx says Black people are the most talented people on Earth ... so what would happen if a white guy would've said it?
(26:00) A "Buckwild" star is arrested in a crazy drug bust.
(32:00) Kim Kardashian and Kanye West may buy properties all over the world -- not even our Kardashian sympathizer (Mike) thinks it's a good idea.
(34:00) Miranda Kerr's boobs look wayyyyyyy bigger in a fancy bra. Is nothing as it seems anymore?
(36:00) The floor is yours!
(40:00) Christie Brinkley is PISSED OFF at people for ripping her daughter Alexa Ray Joel's changing look.

Harvey goes back and forth on spray tans. Charles goes back and forth on corn rows and dredlocks. They are making a ton of money and laughing.

So has anybody seen Rihanna today? I'd say that any night she's with Brown there's a solid 60% chance he'll beat and murder her.

Jamie Foxx doing no one any favours with this nonsense. What someone is better or worse depending on how much of a sun tan you have.

If Jamie Foxx wants to be a tool about this issue. Ask Jamie to name a first world country populated by black people. There are none. Black nations are all third world or developing nations.

Any institution that doesn't reflect ALL aspects of our culture is invalid, so the next pope shoiuld be a black, gay female combat veteran and Dove model.

Here we go..Figured it wouldn't take long to start this discussion. I'll just say, like a few others: We have seen how badly this country has been driven into the ground by the so-called President, do we really need to see in what direction the Church will go, if they do as some hope for...Time to become Jewish if this happens.

They should make Chris Brown Pope! Then he could go around kicking the **** out of all those other religions. Isn't that what the Catholics did for centuries?

How about Father Guido Sarducci as the replacement Pope? He must have moved up through the ranks by now...

It's Dave    

The next pope's name will be Peter if prophecy is correct and he will allegedly be the final Pope. There is a black Cardinal in consideration for Pope and his name IS Peter (Cardinal Peter Turkson ). So.... I guess we will see.
