Everything is business as usual today at the Yuengling brewery in Tampa, Fla., after a fire caused $1 million of damage to the plant on Saturday night, the Tampa Bay Times reported.

"The fire itself was very dramatic and very frightening," Yuengling's Director of Operations Jim Helmke said. "But none of the beer, none of the product was jeopardized at all. Nothing will prevent us from operating normally. Nobody here will lose an hour of work over this. It could have been much worse. We're very fortunate."

Two employees were inside when the fire broke out, according to the Tampa Bay Times. They were not injured, and, as you know, neither was the beer.

For those who can't keep up with the news about which celebrities don't like one another, Twitter has proved itself a reliable informant.

Take Piers Morgan and Jeremy Clarkson. The CNN anchor and "Top Gear" host got in a Twitter spat on Sunday after Clarkson tweeted a picture of Morgan with the caption, "What a monumental tw*t this man is. I cannot wait for the day he goes to prison."

The two had it out, exchanging barbs about whose show got better ratings, until Morgan apparently decided he was the victor in the 140-character combat.

"That was fun @JeremyClarkson – let's do it again sometime. #FleshEaten," Morgan tweeted above a picture of a skeleton used for Halloween decorations.

Eva Longoria was spotted sitting tableside with an ex-boyfriend in New York City Saturday afternoon, which means rumors must fly that she's giving things another go with a man from her past.

Longoria had lunch with ex-boyfriend Eduardo Cruz on Saturday, before she had dinner with him the very same night, E! News reported.

The former "Desperate Housewives" star and Penelope Cruz's younger brother were an item back in 2011, but officially called it quits in June 2012, according to Us Weekly.

While Fleetwood Mac just finished the European leg of its world tour, it looks like the band will not be hitting Australia or New Zealand in light of John McVie's cancer diagnosis, according to The Associated Press.

"We are sorry to not be able to play these Australian and New Zealand dates. We hope our Australian and New Zealand fans as well as Fleetwood Mac fans everywhere will join us in wishing John and his family all the best," band members Mick Fleetwood, Stevie Nicks and Lindsay Buckingham said in a statement.

Band spokeswoman Liz Rosenberg did not say what type of cancer McVie was battling, the AP reported.
