Anytime you see The Donald headlining one of these pieces, you can pretty much automatically assume that he is on the faulted end of some super-dopey pissing match. In this case though, Bill Maher started it. Maher laid down a jokey bet to Trump (along with a multitude of insults), saying that he would offer $5 million to a charity of Trump's choice if Trump can prove that he not the spawn of his mother and an orangutan. Well, crafty Trump produced his birth certificate and is suing Maher for the proceeds. Anything for publicity for the non-half-monkey.

Ronnie Lott vs. Chris Culliver
You may know Ronnie Lott from being one of the best safeties in NFL history and a two-time Super Bowl Champion. You may know Chris Culliver as being the outspoken nobody idiot from the Super Bowl-losing 2012-2013 San Francisco 49ers. Culliver told radio shock jock Artie Lange that he and other athletes do not want gay players on their team. Lott, who was actually good in San Francisco and never lost a Super Bowl for the squad, basically told Culliver to shut up. So did Joe Flacco, Anquan Boldin and Jacoby Jones when they took the ring from the '9ers on Sunday.

Chris Brown vs. Frank Ocean
I didn't have a chance to cover this feud last week, but fortunately, like everything Chris Brown -- this isn't going away. Brown's crew and Ocean's crew got into a fight over a parking lot at a recording studio. Though if you are a fan of A Bronx Tale, you already know that most fights are not really over a parking space. During the brawl, guys from Brown's squad were allegedly yelling out homophobic slurs as Brown and friends beat up on the singer who has admitted having a relationship with a man in the past. According to Ocean, Brown also threatened to shoot him. Whether those allegations are true or not, something tells me that Brown has run out of benefit-of-the-doubt.

Marilyn Manson vs. The Fans
OK this one is probably not Manson's fault, but apparently a show in Canada had to be cut short when Marilyn began vomiting on stage several times before collapsing during a performance of his trademark song, "Beautiful People." Manson's folks are blaming the flu for the incident in Saskatoon, and I'm just hoping that nobody was seated in the splash zone for this show. Hopefully Manson feels better soon so he can go back to his normal and far less disgusting onstage antics of allegedly performing sex acts and burning bibles (allegedly).
