Get caught up on the news all your friends will be talking about at Sunday brunch with Zap2it‘s “Weekend Warmup.”

Troy Polamalu will kick off the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) “Mane Event” Nov. 11 by hacking off his trademark locks to raise money for U.S. military vets. The Pittsburgh Steelers safety hasn’t cut his hair in more than a decade. And that’s not the only reason this haircut is such a big deal. He’s got his money-making curls insured for $1 million.

Here she is … Miss America 2014. A new beauty queen was crowned, but not without some major controversy. Miss New York, Nina Davuluri, takes the title from Miss America 2013 Mallory Hagan — also a former Miss New York. It must have been a little awkward for Ms. Hagan, pinning the crown on the head of a woman who just days before had called Mallory “fat as [bleep].”

Is Mallory was unhappy about Nina taking her sash, she didn’t show it. But throngs of Miss America fans following along on social media didn’t bother to hide their disappointment with the judges’ choice. Twitter erupted with outcries over the crowing of a woman of Indian descent. (‘Murrica!)

scott eastwood shirtless twitter Troy Polamalu haircut, Elizabeth Hurley breakup, and Scott Eastwood's hot bodClint Eastwood‘s son, Scott Eastwood is taking over the internet with steamy shirtless pics, and no one is complaining. In fact, Yahoo searches of the 27-year-old “Fury” star jumped by more than 9,000%. Whoa.

Former “Gossip Girl” star Elizabeth Hurley may or may not be broken up with Australian cricket star Shane Warne. Liz posted a cryptic message on her Twitter amid breakup reports, calling the situation “too raw and personal” to talk about.

But Shane’s tweet insists the reports are false and the couple is “not throwing the towel in yet.” He flew to London to try to smooth things over, but shortly thereafter, Liz landed in New York City sans engagement ring.

The stars of “Giuliana & Bill,” Bill and Giuliana Rancic, want to have a second baby via surrogate. They asked the surrogate mother of their first child to carry another baby, but we won’t know what answer the couple got until the season premiere of their reality show, which airs Oct. 15 on E!
