Here’s the hot news buzzing around Hollywood this morning!!

We all know that Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin are separating but everyone’s been wondering what exactly “conscious uncoupling” is. Well, we have an answer. Conscious Uncoupling is a relatively new practice developed by bestselling author Katherine Woodward Thomas. It’s a 5-week program in which couples break up in a healthy, manageable way so everyone can heal properly. That’s nice but everyone’s still bagging on the term. One tweet said “Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin are getting divorced, citing “insufferable similarities.” — Huff Post

Months before Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin announced their split HE was seen at a Grammy after-party hanging with some unknown ladies. Martin was even videotaped leaving the hotel with two young brunettes. Cheating rumors have swirled around the couple for ages, but the finger usually pointed at her. Guess that’s not the case after all. — Daily Mail

Wu-Tung Clan is doing something unprecedented. They’re going to sell only one copy of the new 31-track double album “The Wu-Once Upon a Time in Shaolin,” which they recorded in secret. They said they wanted it to be like a piece of art. No date or price have been disclosed for the private sale but it will probably go for millions. Oh, that’s after it goes on a listening tour to museums around the world. — Rolling Stone

Katy Perry is already dating again. After splitting up with boyfriend John Mayer last month, she went on a date with rapper Riff Raff & talked all about it on social media. They went out last Thursday for sushi & Skrillex’s party. He called it “an average date,” but said they’d try to go out again next week. By the way, James Franco’s “Spring Breakers” character was based on Riff Raff. — Huff Post

Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian are working on a spinoff that will take them to the Hamptons & the locals aren’t happy about it! “Kourtney and Khloe Take The Hamptons” will show the sisters opening a pop-up clothing store, as they did for spin-offs in New York and Miami. The E network is thrilled about the show but locals fear they will be over-run with tourists & have already been tweeting THERE GOES THE NEIGHBORHOOD! — New York Daily News

Oprah Winfrey is going on tour. She’s launching an eight-city “Oprah’s: The Life You Want Weekend”, which will feature group activities & inspirational speakers. Oprah will be the keynote speaker but all kinds of celebrities are expected to turn up. Tickets go on sale April 7th but it’s not coming to Dallas. You’ll have to road trip to Houston to see her October 17th & 18th. — Hollywood Reporter

A new reality show promises women the chance to date Prince Harry – sort of. On I Wanna Marry “Harry”, twelve American women vie for the affections of a man they think is the red-headed Prince, but it’s really just a Harry look-alike. The handsome but common-born Brit Matthew Hicks spent weeks posing as the princeon the new reality show, which will be a little like Joe Millionaire. The REAL Harry of course is close to popping the question to longtime girlfriend Cressida Bonas. — Deadline

Zac Efron mysteriously ended up in a bad part of L.A. late Sunday night & got punched in the mouth as a result. Evidently cops broke up a big street fight with a group of transients & Zac Efron & his bodyguard were involved. They said that Zac threw a bottle at them but Zac said, No I just threw it out the window. This is a BAD party of town too where police are on high alert for drug & gang activity and Efron was in rehab for cocaine abuse twice last year. He also broke his jaw not long ago so this does NOT sound good. — TMZ

The guys from One Direction have hired an unprecedented 20 bodyguards a piece for their US tour next month. It means that at any given time 100 burly guys will be spread out to keep them safe. Sounds like overkill but they guys have had way too many close calls lately with over-enthusiastic fans. Sources say it’s mostly Niall and Liam. Liam’s been freaked out since two fans stole his pants in Australia last year & Nial’s been having panic attacks. — Irish Independent
