Great news! Just signed Paula Broadwell to write my biography! Whee!"

-- Steve Martin: The actor, tweeting about doing a book project with the woman who had an affair with her biography subject, former CIA director David Petraeus, who resigned Nov. 9.

"Memo to: FBI/CIA From: SVU Writers' Room -- Please slow it down, we are having a hard time getting this all down."

-- Warren Leight: The Law & Order: SVU executive producer, tweeting about the ever-growing scandal involving Petraeus and Broadwell.

"Am I not good enough for you to get my side? 'Cause I'm a little black girl that raps?"

-- Nicki Minaj: The hip-hop artist, complaining that Barbara Walters contacted Mariah Carey but not her for comment about their feud on American Idol.

"The idea was to look near death. Looking back on the experience -- and I don't judge it -- it was definitely a little nuts."

-- Anne Hathaway: The Les Miserables actress, on losing 25 pounds in two weeks eating two squares of oatmeal paste a day for her role as Fantine.
