    We all knew The Rock was the champ, but now he's got even more hardware to prove it.

    At Thursday's London premiere of his new film, San Andreas , Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson successfully set the Guinness World Record for taking the most selfies in three minutes with a grand total of 105. Clearly whoever's keeping track of this world record has never seen how many outtakes we have when we try to take a selfie with the perfect lighting/angle.

    "I have just broken a Guinness Book World Record for the most selfies of all time," The Rock shouts in a video he posted to Instagram. "London, we did it!"

    Other selfie-related Guinness World Records include Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson, who took 1,449 selfies in an hour at Deer Valley High School in Glendale, Arizona, 2,997 selfies taken simultaneously in an event organized by Atlanta's Scheduling Institute, and the longest selfie relay chain: 289 people.

  • TLC Yanks '19 Kids and Counting' After Josh Duggar Molestation Confession

    The network issued the following statement on Friday: "Effective immediately, TLC has pulled all episodes of 19 Kids and Counting currently from the air.  We are deeply saddened and troubled by this heartbreaking situation, and our thoughts and prayers are with the family and victims at this difficult time."

    TLC wouldn't comment on Thursday after a police report surfaced of Duggar's past indiscretions, but instead ran a marathon of the show, which prominently featured Josh. Naturally, that sparked outrage from viewers and non-viewers alike.

    According to TMZ, the fate of the show is "uncertain" and sources involved say no long-term decision has been made. However, cameras have been rolling this week. One day before Josh's past was uncovered, he tweeted out a picture while filming.

  • Mama June: TLC Should Cancel '19 Kids and Counting' After Josh Dugger's Admission to Molesting His Own Sisters

    Robert Kessler at Yahoo Celebrity 7 hrs ago

    Here Comes Honey Boo Boo 's Mama June Shannon is railing against TLC, her former employer, calling them hypocrites for failing to pull 19 Kids and Counting off the air after one of the show's stars, Josh Duggar, admitted to molesting five young girls in 2002.

    TLC canceled Shannon's show in October following a report that she was dating a convicted child molester. On Thursday, Josh Duggar, the eldest of Jim Bob and Michelle Dugger's titular 19 children, admitted to having fondled five young girls, reportedly including his own younger sisters, when he was a teenager. That night, TLC aired a marathon of the show. And the network has another marathon planned for today.

    The awareness campaign, which started in Britain in 1988 to raise money for poverty-stricken children in the U.K. and Africa, arrived in the U.S. today with the same important purpose. Dozens of stars joined forces with NBC and participated in a three-hour telecast Thursday night in an effort to raise funds for children living in poverty here at home and abroad.

    The show featured segments that told moving stories of children in need, as well as funny skits starring some of Hollywood's biggest celebs letting loose for a good cause.

    In the words of host Seth Meyers, "We make you laugh, then we make you cry, then we make you open your wallet."

    Here are three of our favorite bits:

    The funds raised during the Red Nose Day campaign will be given to a variety of nonprofit organizations, including the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, the Children's Health Fund, Feeding America, the National Council of La Raza, and the United Way. To learn more or donate, click here.

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 20 hrs ago

    Flavor Flav was arrested in Las Vegas early Thursday morning for… well, a lot of things.

    Nevada Highway Patrol public information officer Chelsea Stuenkel told The Insider With Yahoo that they pulled the 56-year-old entertainer over in his 2005 black BMW over for going 73 mph in a 45 mph zone. He was arrested on six charges.

    The misdemeanors are suspicion of driving under the influence, speeding, possessing less than an ounce of marijuana, having an open container of alcohol, false registration, and driving with a suspended license. The total bail for Flav — whose real name is William Jonathan Drayton Jr. — was $7,000.

    This isn't the first time the rapper and television personality has had a run-in with cops on the road.

    Last year, the Public Enemy hype man was pulled over for speeding on his way to his mother's funeral in New York. When police ran his license, they found out it had been suspended 16 times.

    An attorney for Flavor Flav said she would get back with a comment when the AP informed her of her client's arrest.

    And baby makes three!  Yahoo can confirm Casey Wilson gave birth to a baby boy on Thursday. This is the first child for the 34-year-old actress and her husband, David Caspe, the man behind Wilson's hilarious projects Happy Endings and Marry Me .

    But it wasn't an easy to road to this "happy ending." In January, Wilson revealed on Today (via Us Weekly ) that she was having a "rough pregnancy."

    "W e've gotten off to a rocky start, my son and I, but I think we're going to see our way through this, " she said at the time. " He's in a lot of trouble right now ."

    In March, she appeared on the cover of Fit Pregnancy, where she confirmed just how troubling the early phases of her pregnancy were. Fortunately, things were looking up for her by the time of the interview.


  • Josh Duggar Responds to Child Molestation Allegations

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 1 day ago

    A stunning and very alarming report has emerged involving the Duggar family.

    According to a recently uncovered police report, Josh Duggar, one of the many stars of TLC's 19 Kids and Counting , allegedly molested five girls — some of whom, were reportedly his sisters — starting in 2002. He was around 14 at the time.

    Josh, 27, issued a statement to People in response to the allegations: "Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my family and close friends. I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation. We spoke with the authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing, and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling. I understood that if I continued down this wrong road that I would end up ruining my life."

    Josh has resigned as Executive Director of the Family Research Council.

    So what triggered this investigation in 2006 if the Duggars never came forward? Oprah, actually.

  • Pamela Anderson Is a Lady Now and You'll Address Her as Such

    Robert Kessler at Yahoo Celebrity 1 day ago

    For anyone who doubts the remarkable trajectory of Pamela Anderson's career, she now gets to add "first Playboy Playmate to be knighted" to her CV. During a stop by The Ellen DeGeneres Show , Anderson joked about her recent knighthood and added that she'll become a Countess next month.

    "Lady Pamela. And then it will be the Countess of the Lilly or something like that," Anderson said of her upcoming upgrade. "Anyway it’s an environmental thing."

    Anderson said the knighthood comes as a reward for her tireless work for animal rights. She's worked for years with PETA, advocating for a vegan diet and the discontinuation of the use of fur in fashion. Earlier this week, PETA unveiled its latest ad starring Anderson, in which she recreates Psycho 's infamous shower scene.

    On the show, DeGeneres joked that she likes animals, too, and would like a title of her own. Sorry, Ellen, but Americans don't get to be knights.

    Anderson also joked about her A+ genes; now that she's 47 she's happy to share the spotlight with her two sons, Brandon and Dylan.

    She says she's not completely off the idea of marriage, however.

  • Neville Longbottom Embarrassed J.K. Rowling With His Nearly Naked Photoshoot

    Robert Kessler at Yahoo Celebrity 1 day ago

    On Thursday, the U.K.'s Attitude magazine unveiled photos of its June cover star, Harry Potter 's Matthew Lewis.

    Lewis posed for the magazine's swimwear and underwear issue in various states of undress, saying he's surprised by all the attention his post-Neville Longbottom physique has gotten.

    "Obviously a lot of attention focused on it, which I didn’t expect at all," the 25-year-old said. "I’ve never considered myself to be good-looking at all. Just average."

    Yes, this is what Matthew Lewis used to look like:

    And this is what he looks like now:

    But there was at least one person who wasn't quite so thrilled to look at hot Neville lounging in a cardigan and his Armani briefs: Harry Potter creator and (probably) Lewis surrogate maternal figure J.K. Rowling.

    .@Mattdavelewis Not as bad as watching Dan in Equus, but close. Warn me next time, for God's sake.

    Matthew responded with his tail between his legs.

    Ten points to Gryffindor.

  • It Looks Official: Robin Thicke and His 20-Year-Old Girlfriend Geary Show Up to Cannes Party Together

    Mallory Schlossberg at Yahoo Celebrity 1 day ago

    Robin Thicke must have been crooning seductive ballads into the universe, because it looks like the romance gods have blessed him with a new relationship. Thicke, 38, showed up on Wednesday night to a yacht party during the Cannes Film Festival with his much younger girlfriend, 20-year-old model April Love Geary, essentially putting their relationship out in the open. This is for real, folks.

    According to People , the two also cavorted at the Grisogono bash at the Hôtel du Cap on Tuesday. Thicke reportedly performed there, too.

    While the two had been spotted outand about together before — and the paparazzi caught her vacationing with Thickeand his 5-year-old son, Julian — Thicke is now putting their relationship on display by choice by happily posing for the cameras, rather than being subjected to the paparazzi's shots. He really has an official lady now.

    But it looks like he's moved on and is happier now, at least.
