David Brenner Leaves Final Request Before He Dies

Fans continue to mourn the death of legendary stand up comedian David Brenner who passed away Saturday due to cancer. Brenner is said to have died peacefully in his New York home with his family by his side. He held the record for the most appearances on the tonight show, but it doesn't stop there. Among his accomplishments, Brenner briefly hosted his own syndicated talk show in 1987, starred in four HBO specials and wrote five books. According to his publicist, his final request was that one hundred dollars in small bills be placed in his left sock, "just in case tipping is recommended where I'm going." His family says his final resting spot will read "If this is supposed to be a joke, then i don't get it." David Brenner was 78 years old.

Chris Brown is expected to appear in court today to face a judge after his probation was revoked Friday. The R&B singer was arrested and held without bail. The judge overseeing his case learned he had been discharged from rehab, this while the 24 year old star continues to struggle to put his troubled past with Rihanna behind him who is now said to be dating rapper Drake. Brown's probation for Rihanna's assault had been scheduled to end this year, but a judge revoked it last year after Brown was arrested on a misdemeanor assault charge in Washington, D.C. That case is still pending.

The muppets are back in trouble in their newest international adventure. Tina Fey plays a Siberian prison guard in "Muppets Most Wanted." She says the best part was mixing with characters she'd known since childhood and finding that they can really act. "Muppets Most Wanted" hits theaters Friday and is rated PG.
