Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens Break Up on Her BirthdayS

The golden couple of Disney breaks up on Vanessa's 22nd birthday. Katie Couric goes to a Bieber concert. Michael C. Hall divorces. Miley barters for her bong video with Macbooks. Tuesday gossip is always a trade-off.

  • Vanessa Hudgens is celebrating her 22nd birthday by breaking free from the shackles of her Disney PR-mandated sext-enhanced romance with Zac Efron. After four years of PR heaven romance, the duo either broke up on Vanessa's birthday (but "they are 100 percent still good friends" so probably not?) or it's time to rev up the ol' tabloid conspiracy theory machine: Did Vanessa's relationship contract expire on her birthday? Does she want to party with another man? (But "there's no third party involved," so probably not?) And, of course, that perennial query about Efron's sexuality. Speaking of which, remember the time Zac told everyone about Vanessa's anus-shampooing toilet? We'll cherish the memories, Zefnessa. [TMZ, image via Getty]

  • Spotted in the audience at a Bieber concert: Katie Couric and Dr. Oz. Oz had better seats. [TMZ]

  • Miley Cyrus' management tried to pay off her bong video distributors with Macbook Pros. Apparently a handful of students at a San Luis Obispo college (Cal Poly?) had copies of the video, and to avoid an overt payment, Miley's "team" offered to "trade" computers with anyone who had it on their harddrive. Obviously, the campaign failed. Silly Cyrus managers! Only money can buy silence. [TMZ]

  • Meanwhile, remember how Miley freaks out during her "bad trip" about some guy who looks just like her undie model ex-boyfriend Liam Helmsworth? Turns out it was Friday Night Lights actor Grey Damon, who does kind of resemble Liam. [TMZ]

  • After two years of marriage, Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter are divorcing. Apparently they've been separated for "some time." [EW]

  • Mariah Carey on the rumor that she's queer: "If it makes somebody happy to say that, then whatever, but that's not the reality. I don't have a discriminatory policy of who I'm friends with, so yes, I'm friends with women who are gay—gay, straight, it doesn't matter to me. So I don't get upset when I hear that, because it is what it is. I guess I could lie about it to seem more exciting." Don't make Katy Perry sue you for schtick infringement. [Advocate]

  • Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens Break Up on Her BirthdayWhitney Port "let my sexy side out" for Maxim which she claims was "TOTALLY new for me." Has she really never done a sexy photo shoot before? I was under the impression that MTV reality stars don't even have real skin, just many layers of lace and underwire, which they molt and shed like so many shells, perpetually shapeshifting near-nudity. [WhitneyPort]

  • Paris Hilton was a no-show at Nicole Richie's wedding because "Nicole is in a very different place in her life from when she was hanging out with Paris. She's the mother of two and now a wife while Paris seems to be in exactly the same spot she was in five years ago. Still partying in Vegas and getting into trouble with the law." Or, you could say Paris gave Nicole the best possible gift for her wedding: Justified feelings of superiority. [Popeater]

  • Remember when basketballer Manu Ginobili thought he saw a UFO? Turns out it was a team of flare-wielding skydivers. That or the Kardashian mothership, abducting bachelor athletes. [TMZ]
