It’s time for another “comeback”, this time Eminem is hoping it is his turn. He has a new album coming out called “Relapse” and a new video that is not only funny but I have to admit pretty good and I am not the biggest Eminem fan around. The video, “We Made You” pretty much takes a shot at a lot of the celebs out there. Look alikes are used to spoof today’s hottest celebs like Kim Kardashian and her famous rear end, Lindsay Lohan, Samantha Ronson, Amy Winehouse, Jessica Simpson and even a Sarah Palin look alike manages to make it into the video, and trust me she will be wishing she hadn’t. Kim Kardashian on the other hand thought the video was funny and was flattered to be a part of it. Dr. Dre produced the new album and even has a cameo in the video as Captain Kirk from Star Trek. It is definitely out there but worth the watch.
Here is a little more baby news for you for today. Campbell Brown of CNN and her husband welcomed their second son on Monday, Asher Liam who was a big boy weighing in at 9 lbs. 4 oz and 21.5 inches. Penelope Ann Miller also welcomed her second child Maria Adela. She is the couple’s second girl. Penelope will be in a new movie with “High School Musical” cutie, Corbin Bleu. The two can be seen in the new family movie “Robosapien: Rebooted and Free Style.” Hopefully the movie is way better then its title! And there is more “Melrose Place” news to report. I feel like this is de ja vu…the newest old cast mate to join the show is Thomas Calabro, who placed Dr. Michael Mancini. I loved the show and am so happy to see all these familiar faces returning. I bet they are so happy to be asked to play these famous roles again. I wonder if my favorite Jack Wagner will be back too. Why do they even need the new people, just bring back all the old ones.
Despite all that she has been through this week, Madonna comes to the aid of the Italian earth quake victims. Madonna grandparents on her father’s side actually lived in the town of Pacentro many many years ago. After hearing a plea from the Mayor asking for help for the town’s people, Madonna did not hesitate. She made a huge donation. Although the amount has not been released it is said to be around $500,000. Way to go Madonna! In other optimistic news, it seems that Farrah Fawcett who was recently admitted to the hospital for internal bleeding should be released in the next few days. IT is hard to believe that Farrah Fawcett is 62 and despite battling cancer still looks amazing. Her friend Alana Stewart says that Farrah is very brave and has a strong positive spirit. We love you Farrah…keep up the good fight!
I have to tell you, this isn’t exactly the hot gossip scoop but it is something I am personally so excited about…. one of my all time favorite shows is back on Broadway. “West Side Story”…who doesn’t just want to start snapping their fingers and dancing the night away with The Jets and The Sharks? The modern day Romeo and Juliet is just a fun show that you won’t want to miss. Who can forget Riff, Bernardo, Anita, Tony and girl named Maria? “The Step It Up and Dance” winner from the Bravo reality TV show, Cody Green, plays Riff and Karen Olivio takes on the role made famous by Chita Rivera, Anita. You might now Olivio from the Broadway show “In the Heights”. IT is just a fun evening with great music and issues that after all this time are still prevalent. And while I am in the theatre mode, I just have to let you know about another oldie but goodie that is back on Broadway – “Hair”. Moving from the 50’s to the 60’s the songs are some of the best, and will make you want to get up and sing. Who can forget “Let the Sun Shine In” and “Aquarius”. If you need a pick me up with all that is going on these days I guarantee great music, hippies, free love, and peace – should help for a little while anyway.
Ok now on to some celebrity news of the day. The big news is that Lindsay Lohan and girlfriend Samantha Ronson have officially broken up. And if you think Ronson is the tough one in the relationship, I would agree with you. She had Lindsay blocked by security from coming to her sister Charlotte’s party over the weekend and changed the locks on the home where they had been living together for 6 months. Oh it is going to get ugly between these two. Lindsay Twittered to Samantha…”So – you win, you broke my heart. now go away. I loved you” for all to see. So I am curious…will Lindsay’s new mate be a girlfriend or a boyfriend? Hmmmm…. and speaking of breakups, LeAnn Rimes attended the Academy of Country Music Awards without her husband last night in Vegas. She was wearing her wedding ring but made no mention of her hubby when she accepted her humanitarian award for all the work she does for charity. The night before she gave a free concert and again no mention or sighting of her husband, Dean Sheremet. She did some great singing though as she sang her famous song “Blue” as well as “I Want You to Want Me” by Cheap Trick and “Somebody to Love” by Jefferson Airplane.
IT’s a girl for Ryan and Trista Sutter from “The Bachelorette”. Basically the shows only married couple has just had their second child, a girl named Blakesley Grace. She joins baby brother Max who is 1 ½. Good news for “Melrose Place” fans….Laura Leighton will be back as Sydney Andrews. She will be the new landlord on this version of the show. Did you know that she is married to Doug Savant who was also on “Melrose Place” and is currently on the hit ABC drama, “Desperate Housewives”? They have to children together and have been married since 1999.
It was a huge disappointment last night in Sweden for fans of Metallica. Just minutes before the concert was to start the guys came out to deliver the news that lead singer, James Hetfield, had just been taken to the hospital. Luckily it was just a bug that he caught and he ended up dehydrated, but he is fine and returned to the U.S with the rest of the band. Can you even imagine how bummed out those fans were, but what can you do?
Jessica Simpson is back in the news and back in her daisy dukes. Jess performed last night in Florida in what many are calling a “major improvement” compared to the dreadfully unflattering photo of her in those high wasted jeans. Not only was Simpson out in her daisy dukes but she was also wearing a corset as a top (although the brown flannel shirt that accompanied the corset did nothing for her) Overall she looked great and compared to her last few concerts, she did great. There were no tears and no flubbed lines. Jessica is opening for Rascal Flatts and their next stop is in Phoenix on Thursday.
In other Simpson news, its official, Ashlee Simpson will be moving into the new “Melrose Place”. She will be playing Violet, who is a small town girl with a secret. She is one of those that will look sweet on the outside but watch out because she will get you. Hey, it wouldn’t be “Melrose Place” if she was just sweet. Although it is not official Heather Locklear has been in talks to return to the show as well as the possibility of Mischa Barton joining the cast too.
I know you are probably on the edge of your seat waiting for more Octuplet news and it is your lucky night because there is more to tell. The latest news is that Nadya Suleman just bought a new house for her family and will be moving in later this week. Although larger then her other house it is still just 2,583 square feet with just four bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The house listed for $564,900. Now that sounds like a great house for a family of 4 or maybe even 6 but 4 bedrooms for 14 kids and 8 being newborns – it still sounds a bit cramped to me. It seems that doing all those interviews paid off – literally. In addition to that good news for the family, Dr. Phil has also arranged for round the clock nurses to be at the house to help Suleman when the babies start coming home. Angels in Waiting, a nonprofit organization, are truly the angels that will be helping the family. There will be 14 nurses a day which will be about 4 to 5 at a time working with the babies. Typically that kind of care would cost about $135,000 per month. And you wonder why everyone is so angry at this woman?
