Sadly the Jon & Kate Plus 8 plot thickens…US Magazine is confirming that Jon Gosselin has been having an affair for 3 months, with Deanna Hummel, a 3rd grade teacher. The news comes straight from Deanna’s brother and roommate, Jason. In addition to Jason, the magazine is reporting that they have talked to 5 additional people who are also confirming the story. I have to say I am sitting here shocked, and although I wrote two stories about his late night mishaps, I was really hoping in my heart that his denials were true. The brother gives detailed descriptions of times the two have been together and it seems that they have been able to spend a lot of time together. Wow, pretty shocking…I wonder what this will mean for the Gosselin family and next seasons show. I am sure Kate does not want to be raising that family on her own. Good luck guys. I am sure we will be hearing more on the Jon & Kate saga.

Paula’s pain was officially diagnosed as reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome, which is basically a very real condition where she was suffering from chronic pain all the time. It all started years ago from all her years as a professional dancer and a back and neck injury from a plane crash back in 1993. In addition to the pain killers she has also had 15 surgeries over the years to help her. Now with the help of yoga and spiritual workshops she is almost 100% better. At least this finally explains all her weirdness over the years. You knew it had to be something making her act that way. You can read all about Paula’s struggles and recovery in the June issue of “Ladies Home Journal” and you can also hear Paula sing her new single, “I’m Just (Here for the Music)” on “American Idol” tonight.
Hollywood loses another legend, Dom DeLuise died Monday night at the age of 75. DeLuise was a household name back in the 70’s and 80’s when he appeared in movies like “Blazing Saddles”, “Cannonball Run”, “Smokey and the Bandit ll” and “The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas”. He leaves behind his wife who he has been married too since 1965 as well as 3 sons who are all actors. On a happier note I have two marriages to report. Drummer, Meg White from the group The White Stripes just got engaged to Jackson Smith, who is the son of the singer Patti Smith. They plan to wed sometime this year. Also a famous actress/Broadway star tied the knot this weekend… Bebe Neuwirth who played Lilith on the hit show “Frasier” married Chris Calkins in Manhattan. Most recently Neuwirth has spent her time on Broadway in shows like “Sweet Charity” and “Chicago” and next year she will join the new musical “The Addams Family” where she will play Morticia. That should be a great show.
