Screen Legend Taylor Fights For Her Life


From WENN:

Hollywood legend Elizabeth Taylor is reportedly on the brink of death after her heart began to fail.
Sources say the Oscar winner, 74, is bedridden in her Bel Air, California, home.
After learning her heart is failing, Taylor reportedly cancelled her annual Easter party and has begun planning her funeral - she is expected to be buried next to her former husband Richard Burton in Switzerland.
A friend says, "Liz is inching closer to death every day and she knows it. It is not a pretty picture.
"She's not leaving a lot of money to her children. She wants the bulk of her fortune to go to AIDS research."

My thoughts are with Elizabeth tonight =(

Ann Takes On Angelina



Angelina Jolie's interview with the Today Show's Ann Curry can be found in full context here.
In it, she gets defensive when it comes to talking about paparazzi and says that she "wouldn't be attracted to a man who would cheat on his wife," intimating that Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston were already separated when Pitt and Jolie began a relationship.

Keira is the New Face of Chanel


Pirates of the Caribbean star Keira Knightley has been selected to be the new face of the Chanel fragrance, Coco Mademoiselle. Her one year contract is rumored to be worth over $1 million and will cover both print and TV ads. She will be replacing cokehead Kate Moss, who had been the face since 2001. Christine Dagousset, the executive vice president of fragrance and beauty for Chanel, released this statement:

“We think Keira is the perfect Coco Mademoiselle woman because she is always incredibly alluring and seductive. [She] possesses beauty, elegance and modernity, so she has many qualities that parallel other iconic Chanel faces.”


Also, she doesn't possess coke. Well, maybe. Her birthday pictures were pretty contradictory of that statement.

Charlie Sheen's rep confirmed that he has had the tattoo on his wrist that read "Denise" in honor of his estranged wife Denise Richards erased with laser surgery (a bandage is visible on his wrist in the right photo). The two are currently in a bitter battle over events that Denise claims occurred during the marriage.

Britney Update!



US Weekly is reporting that sources have confirmed that Britney Spears is indeed pregnant after Spears was photographed with a visible 'bump' at the swimming pool of Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas over the weekend. Gossip magazines and websites (like this one) have been speculating over Britney's condition since February, when she was rushed to the hospital with early signs of pregnancy. Her representative denied it then, but no official word has been released either way since US announced her pregnancy on Tuesday. This would be her second child with husband Kevin Federline.

Reports are also circulating that Spears has fired her nanny for son Sean Preston after he fell out of his highchair and was treated for a fractured skull. She has also cancelled plans to attend her brother Bryan's birthday party in order to stay at home and spend more time with Sean. The same reports also speculate that Britney has hired a doctor to give her advice on how to protect Sean. A source told In Touch Weekly, "The doctor advised her not to leave Preston on any high surfaces where he could roll off." Wow, that's great advice that I would definitely pay for. The source also told In Touch: “She wanted to be a mother and thought she could snap her fingers and be the perfect mom, but Britney is learning the hard way that being a good mother is something you always have to work at.”

Paula and Ryan Kiss and Make Up


From People Magazine:

Ryan Seacrest and Paula Abdul seem to have finally patched things up.
The saga began when Seacrest told PEOPLE on April 21 that things had been "awkward" between them after Abdul joked about him on The Tonight Show. Days later, Abdul said in a statement, "Reports of a feud are ridiculous," and Seacrest's rep said the American Idol host had been joking.

But on Seacrest's KIIS-FM morning show on Wednesday, he admitted he hadn't been kidding around. "I spoke the truth," he said. "There were some awkward moments in the last week or two between Paula and I. … And before the show last week I went down to try to talk with her and I couldn't get in."

Seacrest and Abdul discussed the situation in an on-air phone interview.

"You made a couple of jokes about me, which I love," Seacrest said. "But then on the show that week, we weren't in sync. You and I. I just felt like, for us, it was a bit awkward and uncomfortable. Would you agree?"

"Actually, I thought you would be laughing hysterically," Abdul replied, "and then when I came out to see you, I don't know if you were preoccupied but Simon goes, 'You're in the dog pound tonight, baby.' "

After Paula complained that she'd felt left out when Seacrest and Simon Cowell teased each other, Seacrest held out the olive branch. "So it's safe to say that we can move forward," he said. "We can poke fun at each other and when we do it, we're not feuding."

"I'm trying to catch up with you and Simon!" Abdul replied.

"Ryan, I have nothing but love for you," Abdul said later in the show. "Remember, I'm the one who told you when we first started that I had a crush on you. … (You) ignored me so I had to move on."


Aww, how cute. But I think Paula was right. Hatcher is Seacrest's beard. (Although Ryan would NEVER grow a beard, beauty fiend that he is).

Oma-grossa Gets a Boob Job!



Reality star Omarosa shows off her new breast implants at the Wynn hotel in Las Vegas. She's stretching her fifteen minutes of fame even more than her chest by airing her surgery on national television later this year for (what else?) a reality show on the Discovery Health Channel. This woman has ZERO class.

Kim Mathers Emails Star Magazine Her Side of the Story

Star Magazine sent a letter to Eminem's estranged wife asking why she believed he was divorcing her, as well as what she had to say to one of Em's friends, who claimed she was "spending money like crazy" and "hanging out with her girlfriends again." Here's what Kim wrote back to Star:

"I would just like to say that the reason my husband has filed for divorce still remains a mystery to me. The only thing I can tell you definitely is that Marshall has a problem being honest with me, himself, and many others. I have done nothing but try and try with him, and nothing is ever good enough. I wanted to seek out counseling, but as everyone around Marahall knows, he's perfect. It's everyone else that's fucked up. It's amazing he can talk as much shit about anyone he wants and people buy it, but the minute someone speaks on him, they are automatically lying or trying to make money off his name. Correct me if I am wrong, but I could swear my name is mentioned in quite a few songs that he has.
As far as spending his money, the only thing I over-indulge in is our children. The girlfriend that I went out with has been friends with me and my husband for 16 years, and I did come home that night because my girls called me and asked me to come get me because daddy was sleeping.
I really wanted our relationship to work this time. For me and my girls. It's terrible that it didn't, but I will manage to get through this. Me and my girls are very strong, and, unfortunately, they have already been through so much.
- Kim"

Denise Richards Dating Richie Sambora?


People Magazine reports:

On Saturday, Richards, 35, and Sambora, 46, the soon-to-be ex-husband of Heather Locklear, arrived at Le Café in the Westlake Village neighborhood outside Los Angeles at about 5 p.m. in separate cars. In the parking lot, the two kissed then walked hand-in-hand, smiling and chatting the entire way as they headed for the restaurant.

Inside, they shared a table in the covered patio where they gazed into each other's eyes and held hands across the table. Eventually, Richards planted a kiss on Sambora's hand – and he returned the gesture, kissing hers. They then kissed again on the lips.

They left the restaurant at 5:45 p.m. in the same car together. Sambora has a home in Westlake Village.

On Friday, Richards filed a 17-page court document claiming that her estranged husband, Charlie Sheen, had threatened to kill her. The actress also claims that during their marriage, Sheen abused prescription medication, had violent mood swings, was a compulsive gambler and visited pornography Web sites featuring "very young girls." Sheen has called Richards' claims "vile" and "baseless."

Richards originally filed for divorce in March of last year, when she was six months pregnant with the couple's daughter Lola. The pair appeared to briefly reconcile after Lola's birth in June, but on Jan. 4, they requested that their divorce proceed with a private arbitrator.

In February, Sambora – who's the guitarist for Bon Jovi – split from Locklear, his wife of 11 years. The couple have an 8-year-old daughter, Ava.

Richards and Locklear are pals who grew even closer during Richards's split from Sheen. Locklear, who starred with Sheen in Spin City, attended Richards's baby shower before she gave birth to her daughter Lola – and helped take care of the baby after she was born.

Richards's rep could not be reached for comment.


Hmm...I wonder how Richards' new BFF Locklear feels about this. And the disagreement between Denise and Charlie is just getting worse and worse. DRAMA!

P.S. (Poor Suri) =

Oh, yeah, and by now everyone should know that Suri does not mean "princess" in Hebrew. It means "Get out of my face." Good job, Tom. (I'm sure it was Tom that picked the name as Katie was probably in her brainwashed state.)

Tom Cruise Displays Typical TC Behavior


Tom Cruise showed up unexpectedly to the world premiere of Mission Impossible: III at the Palazzo Colonna in Rome, Italy today. Naturally, he demanded that all the attention immediately be redirected at himself as he ran onstage during the press event and cut off poor co-star (and superior actor) Philip Seymour Hoffman, saying, "Sorry to interrupt. I just got off an airplane, so I'm way too tired." Too tired to what? Wait his turn? He later admitted that he hadn't slept once since daughter Suri's birth last Tuesday. "My own mission impossible was getting here today...Katie said, 'Go have fun.' So I'll be here for eight hours, and then I'm going home."

Looking constipated




What is that next to her mouth? Does anyone see what I'm talking about? That ginormous bump?

I know she was hella skinny before, but the girl has gained a lot of weight, it looks like.

Sienna and Jude Still on Good Terms



Here's Sienna Miller in London carrying one of Jude Law's children (sorry, I don't know their names). Apparently she and Law are still on friendly terms and she gets together with him on occasion and spends time with the children. I think that's good...I would hate (as a kid) to suddenly have someone cut out of my life that I had gotten used to being with just because the relationship didn't work out.

Baby Bump Alert!

Naomi and Liev = (Finally) Engaged?


From WENN:

The couple has been spotted shopping for engagement rings in Los Angeles. An insider at top store Antiquarius tells America's In Touch

This will be both stars' first marriage.
Watts' publicist was unavailable for comment when WENN went to press.



Shannen Wants Her Own Show, Too


Former Beverly Hills, 90210 hellcat Shannen Doherty has found the perfect job as host of a reality series for the Oxygen Network called Breaking Up With Shannen Doherty. The show, as described by the network, "comes to the rescue of men and women who are unable to muster up the courage to break off their toxic relationships with bad boyfriends/girlfriends, 'frenemies,' or tyrannical bosses." This is a really good - and terrifying - concept. If I was a bad girlfriend and I had Shannen Doherty in my face getting all crazy, I'd do whatever she said. Shannen Doherty is scary. Anyway, the show, which will also be executive produced by Doherty, is coming to the air in August. I'm definitely going to watch this.
