Tracy Morgan's Car, Bicyclist Meet in NYC

Andrew H. Walker/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- 30 Rock star Tracy Morgan had a mishap in New York City Monday night, when a bicycle-riding deliveryman rammed the door to Morgan's Jaguar after the funnyman opened it. He tells the New York Post he was sitting in his car, when he opened his door and the cyclist rammed it. “I mean this guy was wearing all black ... If you want to write a story about something, write a story about how these guys should wear lights or reflectors or something," Morgan said.

While the bicyclist wasn't injured, he was taken to the hospital for X-rays. Morgan called for a tow truck for his car because his door wouldn't close after the impact.  The comic seemed to take the incident in stride, telling the newspaper, "This kind of stuff happens all the time in the city. I grew up in the city. I’ve been dealing with this stuff for years."

Report: Justin Bieber Attracts Cops in ‘Batman’ Themed Cadillac

Jason LaVeris/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- If you’re a 17-year-old cruising around in a Cadillac CTS-V with the word “Batmobile” emblazoned on the trunk, you’re going to attract some attention. If you’re all of the above and also happen to be Justin Bieber, pretty much everyone is going to take note -- especially if you cut off a cop car.

According to TMZ, earlier this week, the teen pop sensation was driving that car around Los Angeles accompanied by Sean Kingston in a black Rolls Royce and another buddy in a Range Rover. TMZ said that according to law enforcement sources, Bieber cut off a California Highway Patrol officer and got pulled over along with the two other cars in the mini-motorcade. The Biebs and his pals were let off with a warning.

Justin’s Cadillac not only has the word “Batmobile” on the back, it also reportedly has a “JB” logo on the side panel and Batman symbols on the front and back.  The base model of that car -- excluding JB's custom matte black paint, rims, and the other custom bells and whistles -- costs around $70,000.

Oprah Gifts New Car to 'Favorite Things' Audience

Photo Courtesy - PRNewsFoto/Discovery Communications(CHICAGO) -- From diamond earrings, an iPad, and a brand new car, Oprah Winfrey succeeded for the last time at sending unexpecting audience members into hysterics during part two of her legendary "Ultimate Favorite Things" episode.

On the heels of last week's first installment of the popular Oprah Winfrey Show segment, Winfrey shocked yet another group of guests with another round of gift giving in which hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of goodies were doled out.

The first gift bestowed -- an Apple iPad -- came down from the ceiling flanked by angel wings as Winfrey explained that it is her "Number One favorite thing ever."

But the screams of the audience only escalated, peaking when Winfrey unveiled the never-before-seen 2012 Volkswagen Beetle, the keys to which were given to each guest in the studio.

Winfrey also gave the audience several items of clothing, including a cashmere sweater and matching leggings from Magaschoni, as well as Ugg boots covered in sequins and a patent-leather Coach bag that cost nearly $400.

She presented each guest with two $500 gift certificates to Nordstrom's lingerie department.

A custom set of Le Creuset cast iron pots and pans, plus its new line of stainless steel cookware, was also distributed to the audience -- carrying a price tag of nearly $600 per set.

A ballerina presented Oprah's audience with the Sophie Jewelry Box from Pottery Barn, which when opened displayed a pair of diamond Jessica Leigh earrings by Dana Rebecca Designs. Each pair has more than 100 diamonds.

Performances by some of Winfrey's favorite singers, Johnny Mathis and Josh Groban, helped finish the show, and audience members went home with each performer's new CD.
