Keenan Thompson is leaving “SNL”… “Two and a Half Men” final season… Boost ratings for “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo”… Jay Z and Beyonce played us… and Kris Jenner finally filed for divorce

The rumor is that Keenan Thompson is leaving “Saturday Night Live” at the end of this season. He reportedly wanted out last spring but Lorne Michaels asked him to stay on one more season as a favor to him. With so many cast members leaving, he wanted to keep some sense of normalcy. TMZ is reporting that Keenan is really done after this season and that he plans on moving to LA with his wife and baby.

“Two and a Half Men” is returning for its final season on October 30th. Even though they killed off his character three seasons ago, Charlie Sheen says he’s in talks to make an appearance on the series finale. Charlie says it’s “100 percent happening if they want to do it.”

RadarOnline is reporting that Sugar Bear isn’t cheating on Mama June and that the whole thing was dreamed up to boost ratings for “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.” According to gossip sites, Mama June repeatedly caught Sugar Bear trolling for dates on PlentyOfFish.com. But Radar’s source says it’s being blown way out of proportion for ratings’ sake. Yes, Sugar Bear did sign up for dating sites, but only for the sake of a story line.

What do you do when ticket sales for your joint concert tour aren’t exactly selling like hotcakes? You start a rumor that your marriage is in trouble and you’re getting a divorce the second the tour wraps up. That’s apparently the case with Jay Z and Beyonce’s On the Run Tour. Ticket sales were off to a slow start until everybody thought they were witnessing a power couple breaking up on tour. The tour ended up grossing close to $100 million, so the joke’s on us.

It’s been 11 months since they announced they were legally separated, but Kris Jenner finally pulled the trigger and filed for divorce. She’s asking that every dime she earned since they officially separated in June of last year to be hers and hers alone. Other than that, Kris wants to keep her 20.5 carat engagement ring and split custody of 17-year-old Kylie. Bruce agreed to all those terms, saying he’d like to keep some miscellaneous jewelry and personal items, as well. It looks like this is shaping up to be one of the most amicable divorces Hollywood has ever seen.
