FLAVOR FLAV: Rapper and TV personality Flavor Flav was arrested in Las Vegas early Wednesday for alleged assault with a deadly weapon, officials said.

Flav's fiancee called 911 after he got in a heated argument with her and an unidentified teenager in their home, TMZ reported.

The hip-hop artist whose real name is William Drayton Jr. was booked for felony assault with a deadly weapon and misdemeanor domestic violence after the alleged incident.

He is accused of threatening one person with a knife and battering the other, TMZ said.

Flav, 53, is a former member of the rap group Public Enemy. He is also known for appearing on the reality TV series, "The Surreal Life," "Strange Love," "Flavor of Love" and "Wife Swap."


'DOWNTON ABBEY:' Greek television executives have cut a kiss between two men from an episode of the British drama series "Downton Abbey," the BBC said.

The embrace between a visiting duke and the estate's footman appeared in the installment that aired on NET Monday.

"The love affair between the two men ... was not censored," said Costas Spyropoulos, managing director of the Hellenic Broadcasting Corp. "The kiss was not shown because of the time the program was broadcast and the corresponding parental guidance warnings."

The BBC said viewers complained on social networking websites about the cut, which the liberal Syriza party described as "an extreme act of homophobia and discrimination which ... we cannot characterize as unprecedented."

The entire episode was broadcast Tuesday night at a later time.


MICHELLE OBAMA: First lady Michelle Obama has been booked as a guest on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" in Los Angeles, ABC said Wednesday.

She will make her first appearance on the late-night talk show Oct. 25.

"The first lady will join Kimmel to encourage Americans to exercise their right to vote. Kimmel will encourage the first lady to eat more pizza," ABC said in a release.


MEGAN FOX: U.S. actress Megan Fox announced on Facebook she has given birth to her first child, a son.

Fox, 26, married actor Brian Austin Green, 39, in 2010 after six years of dating.

Noah Shannon, their first child, was born Sept. 27, UsMagazine.com said.

"We have been very lucky to have had a peaceful few weeks at home," the actress wrote on Facebook Wednesday.

"He is healthy, happy, and perfect," she said. "We are humbled to have the opportunity to call ourselves the parents of this beautiful soul and I am forever grateful to God for allowing me to know this kind of boundless, immaculate love. Thanks to those of you who wish to send your positive energy and well wishes. May God bless you and your families abundantly."

Green also has a 10-year-old son from a previous relationship with actress Vanessa Marcil.
