Barbara Walters wouldn't be very happy to hear about this!
After many years of being in the number one spot, The View, for the very first time, fell behind The Talk!
Maybe the casting controversy was a turnoff for viewers!
According to Nielsen live, the ratings for The Talk skyrocketed during
Tsk tsk, Brit-Brit.
Britney Spears and boyfriend David Lucado shared a lovely Sunday lunch at a Cheesecake Factory in Thousand Oaks, CA, this past weekend. Sounds normal, right?
Well, the only problem is, the pair dined and dashed!
Now hold your horses! According to Britney, the whole thing is just a big misunderstanding.
When Brit and David had finished eating, she told the waitress that her security guard would cover the $30 bill. Except that her security guard thought Britney had already sorted everything out, so everyone left the restaurant without paying!
We're sure this was just another honest mistake! Partly because Britney is a multimillionaire who can afford a meal, and partly because she can be seen leaving the restaurant with a to-go bag in hand looking really happy!
We bet she had the Chicken Bellagio. That stuff is delicious.

Holy Iceberg Batman!
We can't believe that this picture is real, but it is!
This photo of an iceberg found off of the Little Bay Islands, Newfoundland, has been making its rounds online.
And for good reason, it's uncanny!
Ever since Mike Parsons posted the picture to the Facebook group "Growing Up in Newfoundland," people are amazed by the likeness to DC Comics' Caped Crusader.
Basically, the iceberg can be explained in one of two ways:
1. Mother Nature is really pumped for Batman Vs. Superman.
2. Dr. Victor Fries has officially turned into Mr. Freeze and is attempting to conquer the world!
Either way, consider us impressed!

We're officially in love with Joss Whedon's latest muse.
Remember how he made that Buffy The Vampire Slayer napkin? Well, now The Avengers director has done it again!
Only this time, he's drawn a picture depicting some of the cast of his cult TV show Firefly.
That's right! The show famous for getting a premature cancellation on FOX after just 11 (stellar) episodes has come back to life via a pen-to-notepad drawing of Mal, River, and Wash; played by Nathan Fillion, Summer Glau, and Alan Tudyk, respectively.
And not only do we get to see these awesome pictures, Joss is also hiding little inside jokes and easter eggs in them too!
For instance, SPOILER ALERT, in this one, Joss drew Wash saying, "I didn't die!," with a note, 'a la Coulson.' A solid reference to his newest TV show Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Pretty soon the whole Whedonverse is going to be recreated in 2-D!
Joss, we'd like to personally ask for Dollhouse to be your next show to get the stick-figure treatment.
Five chalk Eliza Dushku drawings on a coffee filter will work just fine.

You can say that Chantal Hammontree just had a very good hair day. That's because her weave protected her from getting shot in the back of the head!
Chantal was getting a ride to her home in East Chatham, Chicago, from her girlfriend, and as she was about to get out of the car, someone shot at her through the back window!
The bullet hit Chantal, but bounced off because of her weave, protecting her from any severe damage. The 18-year-old was taken to a nearby hospital, but stayed conscious the entire time.
While the cops aren't necessarily sure whether the bullet was stopped by the weave or if Chantal was simply lucky, Chantal's family is convinced. Watch what her uncle, Randy Berry, had to say about the shooting!
Ch-ch-check it out (below)!
What great news! Blake Lively's lifestyle website is set to debut this month!
We've been hearing about it for so long that we've got some great expectations for it! And we bet Blake is feeling pressure to deliver!
The blog's main focus will be to sell "curated fashionable items" made by artisans and chosen by Blake herself, but there will also be videos starring the actress. And knowing how much she enjoys cooking, there may even be some recipes or cooking tutorials!
