Producers broke the news to Frankie Grande -- Ariana's bro -- about their beloved grandpa.  And Friday night house guest Derrick Levasseur got similar bad news.Nonetheless ... 64-year old Iris Beverly isn't nervous -- and same goes for her 67-year old husband.  She tells us, "We don't believe in curses, when God calls my name I will go."Beverly adds, "Them dying is a tough coincidence, but he stays healthy walking and I'm a professional piddler."We made calls to the grandparents of some of the other contestants, but there was no answer. Fingers crossed.

Tim McGraw
Slap Victim Lawyers Up Pay Up, Or Else

The woman Tim McGraw bitch slapped during a concert earlier this month has taken the first step in slapping Tim back ... with a lawsuit.Jesslyn Taylor has hired a lawyer who has already contacted Tim's people ... and it's pretty obvious she wants Tim to ante up ... or face a personal injury lawsuit.Her lawyer, Eric Hertz -- a Georgia personal injury attorney -- tells TMZ his client was NOT trying to grab Tim's junk when he hauled off and slapped her.  He says she was nothing more than an enthusiastic fan who was part of the show's "interactive environment" and merely wanted a touch.Hertz says Jesslyn is furious Tim's been slinging mud at her by claiming she was aggressive ... trying to rip his jeans ... and she was thrown out of the concert as a result.  He says she feels humiliated and for starters wants an apology.Cops told us they side with Tim and feel he's the victim.  When you hire a P.I. attorney to contact someone who slapped you, you want one of two things: money or a lawsuit to get you money. We reached out to McGraw's reps ... so far no word back.

Audrina Patridge
Please Love Me, Nerds … Working Blue at Comic-Con

Audrina Patridge did her best to infiltrate nerd mecca by using her only best asset -- her ridiculous body, covered in paint -- but just ended up sticking out like a sore thumb.  Patridge tried to blend in at Comic-Con by dressing up as Mystique from X-Men Friday in San Deigo.Truth is, if there weren't cameras all over the convention center, Audrina probably wouldn't be rubbing elbows with Wookies and Klingons -- but she gets some props for the authentic comic book Mystique costume.She'd get way more if she'd gone as one of the movie versions.

Starbucks Sued
My Oprah Chai Tea Was Spiked with Heroin ... Claims Bizarre Lawsuit

All he wanted was a hot cup of Oprah Winfrey's signature tea, but a Starbucks customer claims his came with a heavy dose of heroin and a barrage of racial slurs -- this according to a lawsuit so outrageous, it's hard to take seriously.Vernon Charles Allen Merriweather says he ordered Oprah's Chai tea last Fall in Buffalo, NY -- and noticed the staff added hallucinogenics, heroin and Ambien ... according to the Federal lawsuit.Merriweather also says when he applied for a job (during a different visit) at the Starbucks -- he was told, "We don't hire n******" -- and the baristas called themselves an Aryan nation.Just in case you're still taking the suit seriously -- VCAM's tea was allegedly spiked 6 months BEFORE Oprah Chai tea even debuted! Yeah. All the same, VCAM is suing Oprah, Starbucks, and 2 colleges in Buffalo ('cause why not) for discrimination and harassment -- and wants all involved to get diversity training ... and give him $15 million.

Mariah Carey
Bel Air is for Princes Not for Queens

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon just freed up a big chunk of Bel Air, selling their massive estate and pocketing a few mil in the process.The couple sold the 3 acre, 7-bedroom Colonial for a skosh over $10 mil, which sounds impressive, but it's 3 million LESS than what they wanted.  Nonetheless, they bought it for $7 mil in 2009 so they won't be apartment hunting in the Valley.In case you want to know what you missed out on ... the house has a movie theater, a gym, an indoor basketball court and a putting green.Unless Miley Cyrus bought the house, it's likely the monogram at the bottom of the pool will be deep six'd.Real estate sources tell us ... M&N plan to ditch the left coast ... for NYC.

John Mayer
Prepare to be Mind Blown, Regis!

John Mayer is a big star.  Regis Philbin has met lots of big stars.  Regis A) doesn't recognize John and B) is genuinely star struck when Bob Saget clues him in.The singer was at Craig's with Saget when the famous TV host made his way into the restaurant and ran into the duo outside.It's actually pretty cool ... Mayer introduces himself to Regis and says they've never met.After that, things get a little confusing.  Just watch.
