[YOUTUBE "imW392e6XR0"] Jimmy Kimmel brought back his fantastic Celebrities Read Mean Tweets About Themselves segment Wednesday night, with a shocking twist. This time, a surprising number of the mean Tweets were actually ... good?

Sure, there were the requisite amounts of unfathomable abuse – why does Andy Garcia, of all people, have haters? – and impenetrable obscenities (particularly the ones aimed at Matthew McConaughey). But other Tweets showed a heretofore-unobserved level of wit that made their targets suppress a chuckle. Even David Blaine thought that David Blaine joke was pretty solid!

In the clip, Blaine asks Paul to shuffle a deck of cards.

Electrifying!

Alicia Silverstone and Woody Harrelson both experienced the magic of David Blaine's Electrified: One Million Volts Always On in New York City this weekend.

Operating on no food or sleep, wearing a chainmail bodysuit and surrounded by over one million volts of electricity (with Intel Ultrabooks controlling the voltage), the illusionist defied death by undergoing electric shock treatment for three days at Pier 54.

Silverstone and Harrelson both brought their significant others to witness Blaine in person.

"They had an incredible time and stayed for a while watching David interact with the crowd," a source tells PEOPLE.

Harrelson couldn't get enough of Blaine's latest performance.

"He said it was a stunning experience and he came back three more times throughout the weekend," the source adds.

This isn't an illusion: David Blaine is going to be a father.

Blaine, 37, and his French model fiancée Alizee Guinochet are expecting their first child together, the New York Post is reporting. The illusionist, best known for his endurance stunts, like depriving himself of food for 44 days while suspended above London's River Thames, reportedly told partygoers the good news at a recent rooftop cancer benefit.

The baby is expected next year.

And Blaine apparently plans to pass on his skills to his child: He reportedly gushed to party guests that he was excited to teach his first child some magic.

David Blaine Video Blogs About Trying to Break World Record on Oprah

Magician David Blaine is taking to The Oprah Winfrey Show on Wednesday in hopes of breaking a major world record. Known for his risky illusions, this time, Blaine will try to his breath underwater for more than 16 minutes and 14 seconds – live on the show.

In preparation, Blaine has been training in the Cayman Islands – and he's recorded two video blogs in which he describes his preparation. In one clip, the magician shows details of his training regimen, including the nights he's slept in a special hypoxic tent, which is filled with lower than normal levels of oxygen.

Says Blaine: "I've been sleeping here for a month – and I was just in Cayman where I've been training on holding my breath. And I've been getting pretty good, so my times have been getting much better."

In another clip he details his training free diving in the ocean where he holds his breath – and encounters sea life.
