LIZZIE KNIGHT: "AP ShowBiz Minute."

Sting, Renee Zellweger, and Kermit the Frog were among the stars who appeared in a streaming event Sunday to raise funds for a network of camps that host seriously ill children and their families. The event dubbed SeriousFun for All included musical performances by Sting and Trisha Yearwood. It also featured segments with Kermit and numerous other celebs, celebrating some of the SeriousFun network's camps and campers.

Two guitars owned, played, and partly designed by the late Eddie Van Halen will be going up for auction. Julien's Auctions announced Monday that a 2004 EVH Charvel Art Series electric guitar and a customized electric guitar Van Halen built with his guitar tech will be among the items for sale at the Beverly Hills auction that starts December 5th.

Liam Neeson's thriller "Honest Thief" stole the top spot at the box office in yet another quiet weekend of moviegoing. The film brought in $3.7 million in North America the weekend of its US debut. "Honest Thief" overtook "The War with Grandpa," which claimed number one last week.
