Homer Simpson is a Catholic. Bart, too -- at least according to the official Vatican newspaper, L'Osservatore Romano. The paper cites an analysis by Jesuit priest Francesco Occhetta, who claims a 2005 episode depicts Homer converting to the faith. "Few people know it, and he does everything he can to hide it, but it is true," says the paper. But the show's executive producer, Al Jean, has doubts: "I really don't think he could go without eating meat on Fridays -- for even an hour," he told EW.com.
Brigitte Bardot for president of France? The former sex symbol, 76, is so fed up with Nicolas Sarkozy's policies on animal rights that she's considering running herself in 2012 on the Ecology Alliance ticket, she said in a letter to Sarkozy published in France. "Sarkozy took me for an imbecile by making promises he didn't keep," she told the Associated Press.
