Talking points

Does mother know best?

Chris Brown’s mother thinks the troubled singer needs to really address his assault of ex-girlfriend Rihanna, as well as his recent outburst during a “Good Morning America” visit. “He has to learn to deal with it and go on with his life,” Joyce Hawkins tells Sister 2 Sister magazine. “I think he really needs to talk about the situation.”

Reese’s hubby is adapting

Reese Witherspoon admits her new husband, Jim Toth, is having trouble adjusting to being married to an A-list actress. “He thinks it’s totally bizarre,” she says, according to Hollyscoop, adding that the constant paparazzi attention — even when Witherspoon isn’t with him — makes him really uncomfortable. But that doesn’t mean it’s easier to be married to someone who isn’t an actress. “I wouldn’t say it’s easier,” she says. “Every relationship has its own dynamic. But it helps that he understands what I do for a living.”

Justin Bieber: ‘Kind of a brat’

“CSI” star Marg Helgenberger has some rather unkind things to say about her show’s recent guest star, Justin Bieber. “I shouldn’t be saying this, but he was kind of a brat,” she admits in a French radio interview, according to Radar Online. “He was very nice to me, but he locked one of the producers in a closet and he put his fist through a cake that was on the cast’s table.” Bieber shot back on Twitter yesterday: “It’s kinda lame when someone you met briefly and never worked with comments on you. I will continue to wish them luck and be kind.”
