Every fall, it’s all about the pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks….until now. For the first time in four years, Starbucks has launched a new fall drink. Out today — the toasted graham latte! They start with graham cracker-steeped milk and then add it to a shot of espresso with a sprinkle of cinnamon graham crumbles on top. And to go along with the new flavor of latte, Starbucks is rolling out new fall cups today. They hope the leaves and pinecones will put you in the mood to drink a hot latte while it’s still 95 degrees outside….

SPOILER ALERT: Chaka Khan went home on Monday night’s “Dancing With the Stars.” But this was a double-elimination week, and last night they sent home Triple Crown winning jockey Victor Espinoza. He explained that his dance was a little for because his pants were so tight. Bless his heart.

Dancing With The Stars elimination

Bruno Mars reportedly has been asked to “curate” the halftime show for SuperBowl 50, and it’s rumored that he’s asked One Direction to take part in the show. The boys could use this as their final goodbye performance in the US before they go on their one-year break. It’s also rumored that Bruno asked Coldplay to join the half time lineup.

Lee Daniels was defending his “Empire” star Terrence Howard and his record of violence against women. He told The Hollywood Reporter that Terrence “ain’t done nothing different than Marlon Brando or Sean Penn, and all of a sudden he’s some (BLANKING) demon. That’s a sign of the time, of race, of where we are in America right now.” Sean Penn didn’t like the comparison one bit and he’s filed a $10 million defamation lawsuit against Lee for putting it out there that Sean was a wife-beater. Sean admits in his lawsuit that he’s had “several brushes with the law,” but that he has never been arrested for or convicted of domestic violence.
