WOMAN ARRESTED AT JUSTIN BIEBER'S RENTED HOUSE
ATLANTA (AP) — A woman is accused of breaking into a house Justin Bieber was renting and falling asleep in his bed. Police in suburban Atlanta say the 23-year-old woman (Qianying Zhao) was found at the home yesterday. Bieber is renting the house from music producer Dallas Austin. She told police she was Bieber's friend and came to the house to attend Bieber's birthday party. She told police the door was not locked. Police say Bieber's party was earlier in the week at another location. No one was home at the time. Investigators believe she's not a friend but a fan who follows Bieber on Twitter. She faces a charge of criminal trespass.

The MTV Movie Awards will be April 13.
''MR. PEABODY AND SHERMAN" HAD A DIFFERENT PEABODY IN MIND
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Ty Burrell was not the first choice to be the voice of Mr. Peabody for the new film "Mr. Peabody and Sherman." Director Rob Minkoff says he originally wanted Robert Downey Junior but Downey couldn't do it because of his work on "The Avengers." Ty Burrell got the part instead, and Burrell knows it's all because of "Modern Family." Burrell says he tried unsuccessfully to get voiceover work for a long time. He says he wishes he could say he landed the role because of his skill but he knows it's because he was lucky enough to be on a hit TV show. "Mr. Peabody and Sherman" opens tomorrow.

''AMERICAN IDOL" WILL GO FROM 12 TO 11 TONIGHT
LOS ANGELES (AP) — In Keith Urban's opinion, Emily Piriz, Majesty Rose and Sam Woolf will be back next week on "American Idol." It's not so obvious who will go home tonight. On last night's show, the judges kept telling contestants they were good but they needed to do breakout performances. Tonight's show will feature Season 11 winner Phillip Phillips singing his new single, "Raging Fire." Irish rock band Kodaline will also perform.

WINES OFFERED BASED ON TV SHOWS
UNDATED (AP) — Given how picky Mr. Carson is about the wine served at dinner on "Downton Abbey," it makes sense that the show would offer viewers official "Downton Abbey" wines. The company Wines That Rock offers a white and a red made by a winery in Bordeaux, France. They sell for about $17 each. If you're more of a "Duck Dynasty" fan, you can get Duck Commander wines from the Trinchero Family Estates in California's Napa Valley. They sell for about $10 each. "Star Trek" wines are made in California's Sonoma Valley and are named for episodes: Trouble with Tribbles, Mirror, Mirror and City on the Edge of Forever. They sell for about $25. More of a beer fan? You can get "Game of Thrones" Take The Black stout or Fire And Blood red ale from Brewery Ommegang in New York.
LEAH REMINI GETS REALITY SHOW
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The world will soon be able to follow the antics of Leah Remini and her family. TLC has signed her up for a reality show that will feature Remini, her husband and her 9-year-old daughter. The show is promising a lot of interesting side characters. Remini's mother is described as "opinionated," her stepfather as "eccentric," her British nanny as "brash" and the housekeeper as "wisecracking." Her sister and brother-in-law talk to each other in a secret coded language. The show comes after Remini made a public break from the Church of Scientology. Remini's reality show will premiere this summer.
