AP: NEW YORK - Shaquille O'Neal is competing far outside his weight class in the second season of "Shaq Vs."
ABC announced Wednesday that Justin Bieber is among those the NBA star will face off with in his reality competition series. O'Neal will visit the much smaller 16-year-old pop star and join in a dance crew competition.
The second season of "Shaq Vs." will take the focus off athletic competitions. O'Neal will have a cook-off with Rachael Ray and a hot-dog-eating contest with competitive eating champion Joey Chestnut.
He will also race Dale Earnhardt Jr., try magic with Penn & Teller and box Sugar Shane Mosley.
O'Neal says: "I'm out to prove that I can compete beyond athletics. ... There's no challenge bigger than me."
The second season premieres Aug. 3.

AP: DETROIT — An underage girl found dancing at a strip bar earlier this year was caught dancing at another topless club on the same day the first establishment was padlocked, police said Tuesday.
Officers went to Club Onyx in Detroit on Monday night after getting a tip that an underage girl was dancing, police spokesman John Roach said. The 15-year-old they found was the same girl who at age 14 was performing at All Stars Lounge in April, he said.
Police arrested a manager at Club Onyx, Roach said. Roach said the club could be shuttered and the manager could be charged with child sexually abusive activity.
"It says a lot about the girl's situation but also it says a lot about the way some of these clubs operate," Roach said of the discovery.
Messages seeking comment were left Tuesday at phone listings for the club.
'Disrespectful' A friend of the teenager's family described the girl as "disrespectful of her mother," the Detroit News reported.
"She would pull a garbage can up to the window and jump out of the house," Tay Giles, 39, told the newspaper. "If you sat down ... had a conversation with her, you would know she's underage because she's not capable of having a grown-up conversation."
The arrest came on the same day that All Stars Lounge was padlocked following an order from a judge. That club is to remain closed for a year. Timothy P. Murphy, a lawyer for All Stars, said he's appealing. He said the Club Onyx bust makes him suspicious about what circumstances drew police to both clubs.
"I think she's working for the Detroit Police Department," Murphy said. "I think it's obvious."
Roach denied that claim.

NY Post: Lindsay Lohan may soon be on her way to prison, but her legal woes are turning into her biggest payday in years. Bids for the troubled starlet's pre- and post-prison interview are now coming in at over $500,000.
Major TV networks -- which technically don't pay for interviews but often get around that by paying for pictures -- are putting in bids by joining forces with weekly magazines to score the big jailhouse chat.
Meanwhile, an increasingly desperate Lohan was close to signing lawyer Robert Shapiro, who defended OJ Simpson in his murder trial, in a bid to overturn her 90-day sentence, which is to start July 20.

Ed Norton takes the high road and releases a classy statement in response to Marvel's "Avengers" - "Hulk" slam.
"As most of you know, I don't like to talk much about the business of making movies because it means a lot to me to protect the audience's fullest enjoyment of the 'magic' that films can have," the statement began. "But I am so appreciative of the outpouring of support from fans of the Hulk and the Avengers that I feel it would be rude not to respond."
"It seems it won't work out for me to continue playing Bruce Banner for Marvel in 'The Avengers,' " he wrote. "I sincerely hoped it could happen and be great for everyone, but it hasn't turned out as we all hoped. I know this is disappointing to many people and that makes me sad. But I am very sincerely grateful to Marvel for extending the offer and even more so for giving me the chance to be a part of the Hulk's long and excellent history."
"And I really can't thank the fans enough for how much enthusiasm you've sent my way about what Louis and I tried to do in our turn with the legend," Norton concluded. "It means a lot to me. I grew up with Banner and Hulk and have been a fan of every incarnation. I'm really proud, and very blessed, to have been one of them and will be thrilled to see him live on through other actors. Hulk is bigger than all of us, that's why we love him, right?"

From what I understand, the book wasn't great. Will Oprah challenge the movie with her lawyers or will she challenge Kitty to a street fight?

Yahoo: TUCKER, Ga. (AP)—Michael Vick was a no-show at his celebrity golf tournament Sunday after probation officials restricted travel for the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback this weekend.
Vick spokeswoman, Judy Smith, said that Vick’s travel has been at the discretion of his probation officer since he was released from prison in a federal dogfighting case in May 2009.
The restriction follows a prosecutor saying this week that while Vick wasn’t involved in a shooting after his 30th birthday party in Virginia Beach, Va., that he was in a confrontation before the incident.
Vick missed the Michael Vick Celebrity Golf tournament in Georgia and also did not make a scheduled appearance at a youth football camp in Raleigh, N.C., this weekend.
Spokespersons for both events say they were notified Sunday morning that Vick would not be attending.
“They called early, like 2 o’clock in the morning, telling us he’s not coming,” said Cornelius Corprew, director of Camp Elite Sports’ two-day football camp. “And then we couldn’t speak to him. It was through one of his associates.
“We’re not crazy. No state agency is communicating at 2 o’clock in the morning that he’s not allowed to come. I think that was a selfish act.”
Corprew, who said that he was told Saturday by Vick representatives that the NFL star would be there Sunday. He said Vick was paid a $2,000 deposit of a $4,000 fee. He said the camp was built around Vick’s appearance, and that campers paid $175 each and were promised packages that included photos and autographs.
“I’m upset because our camp is built on integrity and character and that’s what we teach to our kids,” Corprew said.

MTV: Earlier today, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige released a statement to Hitfix .......
"We have made the decision to not bring Ed Norton back to portray the title role of Bruce Banner in the Avengers," wrote Feige. "Our decision is definitely not one based on monetary factors, but instead rooted in the need for an actor who embodies the creativity and collaborative spirit of our other talented cast members. The Avengers demands players who thrive working as part of an ensemble, as evidenced by Robert, Chris H, Chris E, Sam, Scarlett, and all of our talented casts. We are looking to announce a name actor who fulfills these requirements, and is passionate about the iconic role in the coming weeks."
