Who Gave Guy a Shiner?

Uh-oh. Guy Ritchie showed up with a black eye after a night out in London, the Sun reports. No word on where the mystery shiner came from… could this have anything to do with his less-than-flattering nickname for tough ex-wife Madonna? More gossip:

  • The recession has hit celebrity divorces. John Cleese successfully halved his $1.9 million settlement after showing that he’s not worth as much as he was in 2007, the Mail reports.

  • Guess who’s coming back to primetime? Roseanne, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Barr is in talks to play—get this—a sitcom matriarch.
  • During her extended stay in St Lucia, Amy Winehouse was inspired to change her tune—to reggae, the Sun reports. But her label isn’t happy with the songs she’s written for her third album, so she may be forced to start all over.
  • Katie Holmes can add a new role to her résumé: babysitter. The actress watched pal Victoria Beckham’s boys over the weekend, the Mail reports.
