The Word: Bam Margera, once a ‘Jackass,’ always a jackass

Bam Margera

Considering he’s 32 years old, Bam Margera’s 2012 is off to a suspicious start. After his Mardi Gras pool-hopping arrest in New Orleans, the former “Jackass” star spent last weekend fighting over a girl — with a pro boxer.

Sources tell TMZ that Margera and a woman were hanging out in Adelaide, Australia, when her ex-boyfriend, an unidentified featherweight champion, approached them. Surprisingly, the boys weren’t able to talk this one through, and a fight broke out. The sources go on to say that Margera “didn’t get hurt that bad” and “held his own.”

Well, for now, at least. Forget jealous Australian boxers — Margera is married to a Philly girl.

Should have stuck with music lessons

A thief pretending to be Grammy Award-winning violinist Joshua Bell snuck into his hotel room in Spain last week and helped himself to quite a few valuables. After gaining access to the room, the impersonator called security and asked for help opening the safe, reports TMZ. Included in the loot? A $38,000 watch.

“I was amazed at how easy it was for this to occur,” Bell tells the site.

And we’re amazed that a violinist can drop $38,000 on a watch. What does this guy drive?

Why are we talking about Kirk Cameron?

Kirk Cameron shared his views on homosexuality and gay marriage during an appearance on “Piers Morgan Tonight” on Friday. “I think that it’s detrimental and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization,” said the former child actor.

GLAAD had a snappy comeback, while Morgan supported his guest’s decision to voice his opinions — which we suppose we need to get behind in the name of free speech or whatever. But in the future, Morgan, let’s just ask the kid from “Growing Pains” what’s good on the brunch menu and move on.

Take us in, Angelina!

What do you do when you’re too famous to hit up Six Flags in peace? Build a theme park on the sprawling grounds of your French chateau. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are installing a solar-powered playground-to-end-all-playgrounds that will include “a massive pool, slides, tunnels, boat rides, a pirate island with a castle, a go-cart track and an old-fashioned carousel,” according to Perez Hilton’s source.

Angie, I take back the leg jokes! Any chance you want to adopt a twentysomething?
