JENNIFER LOPEZ and MAKSIM CHMERKOVSKIY may be getting cozy! Fellow dancer Cheryl Burke says, "They're beautiful people, yeah. But at the end of the day it's more about the inside.

West Pittston, Pennsylvania's Kevin McGroarty has suddenly become more popular than ever. Unfortunately, it's because of his self-penned obituary. Starting with the line, "McGroarty achieves room temperature," he states that he died at the age of 53 after battling a long fight with mediocracy. He was baptized at St. Cecilia Church, Exeter, which later burned to the ground, he enjoyed elaborate practical jokes, over-tipping in restaurants, sushi and Marx Brother's movies. He led a crusade to promote area midget wrestling, and in his youth was noted for his many unsanctioned daredevil stunts. McGroarty leaves behind no children (that he knows of), but if he did their names would be son, "Almighty Thor" McGroarty; and daughter, "Butter Cup Patchouli."

However, it doesn't explain how the alleged spiked tea incident occurred six months before Oprah Chai tea debuted.
