Most of her stage antics may be NSFW, but apparently, tongue-wagging Miley Cyrus is suitable for NBC. The good-girl-gone-bad’s BANGERZ Tour is headed to the tube in a two-hour special that the Peacock will broadcast on July 6. [Billboard]

The View is cleaning house. Not long after Barbara Walters’ retirementSherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy announced that they would be leaving the ABC show. “It’s been seven wonderful years on The View and after careful consideration it is time for me to move on,” Shepherd said in a statement. McCarthy echoed her sentiments, tweeting “If Sherri goes… I go too. #sisters.” Whoopi Goldberg is officially the last host sitting standing. [Vulture]

Locked up? Shia LaBeouf was arrested during a Broadway performance of Cabaret (starring Michelle Williams) on June 26 for “drunken behavior.” Coincidentally, his outburst occurred on the eve of Transformers: Age of Extinction’s release. It’s the fourth film in the Michael Bay franchise, one that LaBeouf left in 2011 due to “creative differences.” [Variety]

We thought they killed all the Kaijus in Pacific Rim, but apparently, we were wrong. Guillermo del Toro has signed on to shoot Pacific Rim 2, this time taking its characters to “fresh territory.” The film, which del Toro promises will have “more Jaegers [and] more Kaijus, kicking each other’s butts,” will be released on April 7, 2017.

Vanessa Carlton hasn’t released a new album since 2011; so fans may be sad to hear that her fifth LP has been pushed back until summer 2015… until they find out why. The “Ordinary Day” singer is expecting her first child with husband John McCauley. We’ll wait for that! [The Hollywood Reporter]

It wasn’t simply creative differences that caused Luke Grimes to depart from True Blood as it neared its final—and sure to be epic—season last December. According to anonymous sources, the star decided to leave the show after learning his character would become involved in a same-sex relationship. Of course, his rep has chosen to deny, deny, deny. We just hope it’s not true. [TIME]

Khloe Kardashian just turned 30. And celebrated her birthday in The Bronx will rapper beau French Montana. With Kim, Kourtney, Kendall, Kylie, and mama Kris in tow. Cheers. [Us Magazine]

AOL can’t contain #CandidlyNicole. The web series, which follows Nicole Richie, is being formatted for the small screen, and will debut as a half-hour show on VH1 on July 17. Who’s tuning in? [VH1]
