SHIA LaBEUOF: Not what you think – so say the reps, per the Los Angeles Times, “Shia LaBeouf is being treated for alcohol addiction in the wake of recent antics in New York that ultimately saw him arrested during a production of "Cabaret" and charged with disorderly conduct and criminal trespassing. But that doesn't mean he's doing in-patient rehab. "Contrary to previous erroneous reports, Shia LaBeouf has not checked into a rehabilitation facility but he is voluntarily receiving treatment for alcohol addiction," the "Nyphomaniac" actor's rep said Tuesday.”

KENDRA WILKINSON: This thing is weird, per Us Weekly, “Kendra's not exactly feeling on top these days. Kendra Wilkinson resurfaced in L.A. yesterday, Tuesday July 1, looking stylish and somber in a summery business ensemble that didn't include her wedding ring. A source close to the Kendra on Top star, 29, tells Us Weekly that she's "doing okay" but "still in shock" over husband Hank Baskett's shocking tryst with transgender model Ava Sabrina London. "She's not sleeping that much anyway because of the new baby [Alijah]," adds the source.”

THE DUCHESS: In Wimbledon white, per People, “Just like the athletes competing at Wimbledon, who are ordered to wear all white, tennis fan the Duchess of Cambridge made an appropriate choice for her day in the sunshine at the grassy courts with husband William on Wednesday. Kate, 32, wore the same summery dress by Zimmermann last seen on the beach in Australia in April, as she and William, 32, in a suit and tie, headed to the grand slam event to watch Brit favorite and reigning champion Andy Murray.”

MONTY PYTHON: For those of a certain age, per the New York Times, “Something completely different was never going to be on the menu. The record-breaking ticket sales generated by the news that members of the fabled comedy team Monty Python would be reassembling here for a rare onstage reunion were surely not generated by hopes that the old boys had come up with new tricks.

“No, the many-thousand-strong fold that assembled at the O2 Arena, where the show, which is running for 10 nights, opened on Tuesday, arrived in the spirit of pilgrims in search not of revelation but reassurance. And I’m presuming that is what they received, in a program that had both the pomp and familiarity of a high church ritual.”

DYLAN: You can call him Bob, per Rolling Stone, “Record collector Jeff Gold recently discovered 149 acetates of in-progress versions of songs that Bob Dylan made as he was recording his 1969 LP Nashville Skyline and his two 1970 albums, Self Portrait and New Morning. The rock and folk icon used these acetate recordings, which are cut in real time and can be played on a regular turntable, to figure out what worked and what didn't work in the songs he was writing.

“The records previously belonged to the woman who owned the Greenwich Village building where Dylan had rented a room to use as a studio. Gold has theorized on the record collectibles website RecordMecca, where he's selling some of the acetates for thousands of dollars, that Dylan had either left them or thrown them away when he moved out of the space.”

THE NOTEBOOK: And secrets, per The Wrap, “Great news, fans of “The Notebook” who are still depressed that they just can't seem to replicate that burning love between stars Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams: They hated each other at first. Celebrities, they're just like us!

“In an interview with VH1 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the film, director Nick Cassavetes explains that the two stars got very heated early in production, and not in the way that had been intended.”

‘TAMMY’: Of numbers, per The Hollywood Reporter, “Melissa McCarthy's latest comedy, Tammy, debuted to a pleasing $1.3 million on Tuesday night as it began rolling out at the North American box office. That's ahead of the $550,000 earned by recent female comedy The Other Woman, as well as last year's The Heat, starring McCarthy opposite Sandra Bullock, which took in $1 million on its first Thursday night. It's also ahead of the $450,000 earned by McCarthy's Identity Thief.”

KATE UPTON: Sleepy time, per the Huffington Post, “No filter necessary. Kate Upton shared a gorgeous photo via Instagram on Monday, June 30. "In bed with @mertalas and @macpiggott #nofilter #becauseiminamazinglight," wrote the 22-year-old, who was wrapped in nothing but a white sheet.”

TIM HOWARD: And the World Cup, per Celebuzz!, “Tim Howard gave a brilliant performance in the United States’ 2-1 defeat after overtime to Belgium saw the American goalkeeper make the most saves in a World Cup match since 1966, but it wasn’t enough to keep Belgium from winning the game. Aside from countless tweets praising the goalkeeper, someone altered Wikipedia’s page on the U.S. Secretary of Defense to say "Tim Howard." Several memes featuring Howard’s likeness also went viral.”

AND FINALLY: Today’s mystery music video.
