And so it turns out that the biggest gift would actually be from Jimmy Kimmel.
According to a photo the comedian Jeffrey Ross tweeted out this afternoon, Ross was gifted today with John Currin's 1991 nude Bea Arthur portrait, which was sold at auction last week. At the time people only knew that an anonymous buyer had acquired the painting for a hefty $1.9 million, but Ross' tweet revealed that buyer's identity: It was Kimmel, who was apparently willing to part with a couple million bucks so that his friend could forever stare at a half-naked Golden Girl.
Exhaustion works like heavy drugs on Mariah Carey, which is to say hashtag-beautifully, as anyone witness to her Glitter-era breakdown or Home Shopping Network rambling knows. She performed today in Central Park for Good Morning America's concert series, and the gig forced her to wake up early. "I wake up at this hour," she explained. "I don't mean I wake up, I mean I go to sleep. It's kinda the same thing for me." Indeed. Me too in that this morning I sprang out of bed, turned on my TV and felt like I was dreaming.
But Is It Even Reallya Big Deal? CBS News’ White House correspondent Mark Knoller tweeted this morning that President Barack Obama did not return a salute to a Marine before boarding Marine One on the South Lawn.
The evidence that George Zimmerman's attorneys have uncovered on Trayvon Martin's cellphone paints a troubling picture of the Miami Gardens teenager: He sent text messages about being a fighter, smoking marijuana and being ordered to move out of his home by his mother.
And photos from that phone offer more of the same: healthy green plants — what appear to be marijuana — growing in pots and a .40-caliber Smith & Wesson handgun.
Defense attorneys on Thursday gave formal notice to prosecutors that they intend to use those and other reputation-damaging pieces of evidence about Trayvon once Zimmerman's second-degree-murder trial begins June 10.
The autopsy results for the man who died while in police custody on May 8 have been released.

When women were displaying the tattoos researchers found that the men were more likely to approach and then chat with them, as well as being quicker in making their approach.
For the second part of the experiment a group of over 400 20something men who were on the beaches at the same time as the sunbathing women were quizzed.
The biographer whose extramarital affair with then-CIA director David Petraeus triggered his resignation says she regrets the relationship.
Paula Broadwell told WSOC-TV in Charlotte on Thursday that she has remorse for the harm and sadness she caused her family. She is married with two young children.
She credited her husband and friends for standing by her as she rebuilds her life six months after her relationship with the married Petraeus was revealed by an FBI investigation and ignited a political firestorm.
After 19 years spent mostly in elected office, where he has gained a reputation as a frenetic promoter of both himself and the city, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa was busily working an A-list room once again — this time inside the posh Sunset Tower Hotel at Vanity Fair's Feb. 24 Oscar party, one of the swankiest events on L.A.'s social calendar.
What a union wuss! Eric Garcetti, casting his first vote since he won the mayor's race Tuesday, said the pay hike was "legally due" to the Coalition of L.A. City Unions, which represents about 18,000 non-public-safety employees.
LOS ANGELES (CNS) - The City Council tentatively approved a $7.7 billion budget for the 2013-14 fiscal year, closing a deficit that had been projected at $216 million.
The council made a series of changes to Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's proposed budget, and those adjustments will be finalized and brought back to the council. Once the budget is finalized by the council, it will be sent to Villaraigosa, who can either adopt or veto it.
``We're still not out of the woods. We still have structural deficit challenges that we anticipate we be there for the next couple of years,'' according to Councilman Paul Krekorian, who chairs the council's Budget and Finance Committee.
The budget carries a $260 million reserve fund, which will keep the city's bonds rating in good standing, Krekorian said.
The council's most significant change to the budget was the restoration of a separate ``budget stabilization'' fund with $38 million in property, gas and tobacco settlement tax revenue, according to Krekorian. The fund is now at $66 million, which will help close the anticipated $212 million budget deficit in the 2014-15 fiscal year, he said.
