With Gatsby premiering this week, the NBA play-offs in full swing, and the Met Ball around the corner, the question isn't who we're toasting, it's who aren't we toasting? 

Cheers to... Jason Collins, the NBA center who came out publicly and is the first openly gay NBA player. [E!]

Cheers to...  the return of snappy Tony Stark and Iron Man 3. [NPR]

Cheers to... Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maquire for throwing yet another after party on top of the luxe after-party at the Plaza Hotel for their upcoming film The Great Gatsby. [The Daily Meal]

Cheers to...  Lea Michele for continuing to stand by boyfriend Cory Monteith as he returns home from a monthlong stint in rehab for substance abuse. [She Knows]

Cheers to... the Chicago Bulls' Nate Robinson, who was literally puking benchside between breaks during their game against the Brooklyn Nets and still played amazingly. [Yahoo!]

Cheers to... President Obama, who was kind of funnier than Conan O'Brien, the host, during the White House Correspondent's Dinner.[Washington Post]

Cheers to... the Cleveland Indians for scoring a combined seven home runs against the Phillies. [ESPN]

Cheers to... Cher, who is giving her mom the ultimate gift this Mother's Day with her Lifetime documentary, Dear Mom, Love Cher. [USA Today]

Cheers to... this year's challenging and surprising Met Ball theme, punk, leaving celebrity and model guests a little confused about attire. A bold choice, but bold is always better isn't it? [NYT]

Cheers to... the Golden State Warriors who haven't been in the NBA play-offs since 1997 and won the first round against the Nuggets. [Fortune]
