Sylvia Celeste Browne, a celebrated psychic and New York Times best-selling author, died Wednesday at Good Samaritan Hospital in San Jose, Calif., her website announced. She was 77.
"For nearly six decades," said her site, "Sylvia Browne dedicated her life to helping others as a spiritual guide through private readings, past-life regressions and prayer groups that spanned the globe."
With her strong beliefs in God and reincarnation, the Kansas City, Mo., native often assisted authorities in criminal cases and, with her son, Chris Dufrense, offered personal psychic readings from their Northern California office, according to the San Jose Mercury News.

Some guys ask for your sign. Other guys use trite lines like, "If I could reinvent the alphabet, I'd put U and I together."
And then there's Brody Ryan.
After begging model Piper Kennedy for her number in Starbucks, "Singer/Song Writer/Designer/Photographer/Producer" (according to his Twitter, @sirBRODAG) Brody Ryan sent her the below awkward video where he's smiling and sort of massaging his face (to Drake's "Hold On, We're Going Home").
Kennedy sent it to friends who posted it on the Internet, and #StarbucksDrakeHands was born, with copycats (and actual cats) imitating his creepy, face-touching video. Scroll down for more randomness from this week:

Jane Lynch says her divorce from Dr. Lara Embry after three years of marriage is about as drama-free as these things get.
"It's not dramatic. It's not a horrible thing. It's something that we're dealing with," the Glee actress, 53, said Monday on the web show Larry King Now.
"It's two people who just decide it's better to go apart than stay together," she added.

When Larry King dies, he wants to be placed in a state of "suspendered" animation.
"I want to be frozen on the hope that they'll find whatever I died of and bring me back," he tells a table of celebrities on CNN Presents: A Larry King Special: Dinner with the Kings, airing Sunday from the former talk show host's dining room.
The announcement by the 78-year-old King momentarily stuns his dinner companions who include Russell Brand, Seth MacFarlane, Tyra Banks and Conan O'Brien.

They announced their reconciliation and now Larry King and wife Shawn Southwick want to make it official.
The CNN host, 76 and his wife, 50, filed petitions Wednesday in a Los Angeles court to dismiss their divorce case, almost three months after they initially filed the documents.
"A lot of new things are happening to us," King said in a statement, "and we are happy to be together as a family with our children."
King's lawyer Dennis Wasser told PEOPLE in April there was a "50-50 chance this divorce is not happening." A month later, the two, who have two sons together, said they owed "it to ourselves and our children to continue being dedicated to each other."

After 25 years on the air, Larry King says it's time "to hang up my nightly suspenders."
The talk-show host, 76, said Tuesday he'll end his run on Larry King Live in the fall but will remain with CNN for occasional specials, "giving me more time for my wife and I to get to the kids' little league games."
"With this chapter closing I'm looking forward to the future and what my next chapter will bring," says King.
A replacement for King's 9 p.m. ET slot will be made "in the weeks ahead," according to CNN.

Larry King didn't mince words. This is a "difficult time," he says. He loves his wife "dearly" and he's certain they'll get through this "intact as a family."
His statement comes amid a report from police that his wife, Shawn Southwick King, was found unconscious two weeks ago in a Provo, Utah, home, with empty pill bottles strewn on her bed in a possible suicide attempt.
Southwick, 50, who has a history of painkiller addiction, was recently involved in divorce proceedings with King, 67, but they reconciled a week later. She was discovered May 28 by her father, Karl Engemann, who dialed 911.
"I slap her and I holler at her and she opens her eyes half way and puts them back down again," Engemann tells the emergency operator.

Looks like their differences weren't so irreconcilable after all.
After both citing that reason in filing separate divorce papers last month, Larry King and his seventh wife, Shawn Southwick King, have reconciled and halted their separation.
"We love our children, we love each other, we love being a family. That is all that matters to us," the couple said in a joint statement, according to Reuters. "We owe it to ourselves and our children to continue being dedicated to each other. We want to thank our friends for their loyal love and support – for being there for us."
The CNN host, 76, and his singer wife, 50, have two children together: Chance, 11, and Cannon, 9.

Larry King's seventh marriage may not be over after all.
"There's a 50-50 chance this divorce is not happening," King's lawyer Dennis Wasser tells PEOPLE. "His focus is on the best interest of his children. It's not clear to me which way he's going to turn on this issue."
The revelation comes as King and his wife Shawn attended counseling Monday. In a separate statement, Wasser says, "It was decided that there will be no divorce proceedings for two weeks as several issues need to be discussed and resolved."
