Gotta hand it to Alicia Keys ... she and her husband Swizz Beatz went on vacation with his ex-wife -- the same ex who called Alicia as a home wrecker! We know they're probably just doing it for their kids ... but could you forgive that?

Plus, Kim Kardashian finally made it on the cover of Vogue -- but some people think she only got there because of Kanye West. Anna Wintour famously said KK would NEVER be worthy of the cover, so...

And, the great Jerry Springer joins us -- he's taking heat for using the word "tranny" on his show ... and makes a vow to never say it again.
