Here are just some gossip tidbits I wanted to share. First are you ready for this, the adorable little girl, Rubina Ali, from “Slumdog Millionaire” is writing her memoir. She is only 9 and luckily the book will not be about her rise to fame but rather her life growing up in Mumbai. If her reality is anything similar to the movie, I am sure it will be heart wrenching and gripping.  The book, “Slumdog Dreaming” is actually due out July 16. Something you will not want to miss Monday night…Heidi and Spencer Pratt return to the NBC reality show, “I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here”. After quitting 3 times and for some reason then wanting to return to the jungle, the two must spend the night in the “Lost Chamber” while the cast decides whether to vote them back in or out. I am sure NBC is praying to let them in. The ratings have never been so high with this crazy pair and their antics. They do seem perfect for each other. Do they not know that they are a spectacle… even Matt Lauer from the “Today Show” was making wise cracks about them during an interview with an NBC guy in regards to the show.  Only moments into the chamber, Spencer starts crying for a medic saying he dislocated his thumb. The medic says basically can you move it? Spencer says yes and the medic tells him to get over it he is fine.  They are a couple of babies and to watch them you just do not want to believe they are really like they are and then you also can not watch them to long without wanting to rip your own eyeballs out. Like I said you won’t want to miss Monday’s episode or maybe actually you do. Congratulations to Lance Armstrong and his girlfriend, who welcomed a new baby boy into the world, Max Armstrong, who weighed in at 7 pounds 5 ounces and 20 inches long. 

How bizarre are all the conflicting stories on the shocking death of actor David Carradine? So first the police suspected suicide, but Carradine’s people are insisting that is not the case. He was in Thailand filming the movie “Stretch” and had 3 more movies scheduled for when he returned. His people say, “He was too full of life” to kill himself.  Originally it looked like he hanged himself but the police do admit  that is looks suspicious. Right now the case is under investigation and at this point the police just do not know yet what happened.

Ashton Wins the Race

It was a very close race but in the end Ashton Kutcher beat out CNN in the race to 1 million Twitter followers. It was so close that only 30 minutes separated the two. Congratulations Ashton that is a pretty amazing feat. Now I wouldn’t want to be the one to say that perhaps Ashton is getting a big head but here is what he had to say about the win. “This is David versus Goliath. This just shows how people want to get information. It is about us. It means that one man can have a voice as loud as a media network.” Well the good news is that not only did Twitter and Ashton break the first 1 million follower goal; Ashton is sticking to his word and will be donating 10,000 mosquito nettings for beds for World Malaria Day. Next up on Twitter is Oprah. She actually started tweeting on Friday.  When Oprah speaks people listen…literally. In her first 15 minutes she had 76,000 followers and within her first hour over 125,000 followers. How long until she passes 1 million?

Beyonce is finally ready to bring her World tour to the states starting June 21st in New York. She is out there promoting and singing her heart out for her newest album, “I AM… Sasha Fierce”.  Beyonce will be hitting 14 cities and ending her tour in Las Vegas for a 4 night stretch. And get this…at each venue there will be 2000 seats available for only $20 per ticket (except for her Vegas performances). Pretty awesome Beyonce!

 Pete Wentz and his group Fall Out Boy have been banned from performing their concert as planned in Mizner Park, in Boca Raton Florida.  The boys seem to have a bit of a reputation for causing “disturbances” and Boca didn’t want to have anything to do with them. So instead of paying a lot of extra money for security the boys have moved the concert to the not as stuffy, Pompano Beach Amphitheatre. Ironically however, Pompano Beach is not all that far from Boca Raton. Florida is becoming quite the stickler of a state, the Fox affiliate there is “refusing to air Ozzy Osborne’s variety show because it is not keeping with community standards.” Well I guess that is what happens in a retirement state, they lose all their sense of fun out there.

And here is a little wedding and baby news for you that you know I just cannot resist. First off, congratulations are in order for David Miller, from the international opera group Il Divo, who just got engaged. Simon Cowell from “American Idol” is actually responsible for putting this group together and they are widely successful. In fact they are starting a U.S. tour May 8th. Country star Brad Paisley and wife Kimberly Williams – Paisley finally welcomed their second child a boy, who seemed to be in no hurry to get here. The two have been waiting way past Kimberly’s due date for the little guy to arrive. Mother and baby and doing well and will be joining big brother 2 year old, Huck.
