Mel Gibson’s mugshot
July 31st, 2006 under Mel Gibson, Mug Shot. [ Comments: none ]

You know he does not look like the crazed, Jew hating, literally drinking and driving, trying to  cheat on his wife man that he was that night? Although those eyes are glazed like a Krispy Kreme donut.

Radio station goes from G-d to Oh G-d
July 31st, 2006 under Cool Technology. [ Comments: none ]

KFYE-FM hasn’t budged from the Fresno-area dial, but it’s about as far as you can get from the Christian music, sermons and Bible stories it was broadcasting until about a week ago.Now it calls itself "Porn Radio" — "all sex radio, all the time," with a suggestion that people under 21 not listen.Songs with little in common except suggestive titles and lyrics fill the playlist, including "Why Don’t We Do It in the Road" by The Beatles, "Sexual Healing" by Marvin Gaye and "Nasty" by Janet Jackson. Tamer songs are heated up by adding recorded moans and groans.The change, made after the station was sold this month, was met with several non-sexual groans from some residents."It would appear this is another of those promotions that are simply designed to create controversy," longtime Fresno radio personality Ed Beckman told The Fresno Bee. "This format belongs on Sirius or XM, not on over-the-air."The station tries not to cross the line, said owner Jerry Clifton.KFYE has been playing songs in a continuous one-hour loop without commercials. Clifton wouldn’t tell the Bee whether he plans to eventually switch to a more traditional format.

Mel Gibson in rehab
July 31st, 2006 under Mel Gibson. [ Comments: none ]

Star Magazine has confirmed that Mel Gibson has entered an unnamed rehab facility for treatment for alcohol addiction. Gibson’s rep, Alan Neirob, exclusively tells Star, "He is in a program of recovery at this time."Chris Prentiss, a neighbor of Gibson’s and the co-founder of celebrity treatment centre Passages in Malibu, Calif., tells Star: "I understand he has gone to a treatment centre. The center that I’ve heard he’s checked himself into follows the Alcoholics Anonymous 12-step program. And I don’t believe that will help him." Prentiss — who refused to name the rehab center he’s heard Gibson is in — adds: "He needs individual intense therapy by a team of people who know what they are looking for in causes in alcoholism."


I am sure this a save faced forced entry into rehab. His people are hoping we will forget about all of this, but we can not.  


Shannen Doherty to take on Star
July 31st, 2006 under Lawsuits, Shannen Doherty. [ Comments: none ]

Actress Shannen Doherty has vowed to sue a magazine that claims she has had extensive plastic surgery. The former Beverly Hills, 90210 star revealed she sobbed when she saw the cover of the current issue of Star magazine, which shows her picture and the headline: “Shannen Doherty’s Extreme Makeover: Has she had drastic plastic surgery?”The star claims she has retained a lawyer to sue the publication.“I went to work and my hairdresser David came to me and said, ‘Oh my God, did you see the cover of Star?’ and I went, ‘No, why?’ He told me and then he pulled it up online,” Doherty said on Monday’s episode of The View.“Production (of Breaking Up With Shannen Doherty) got halted for about an hour and a half because I was sobbing uncontrollably.”Asked if she has had plastic surgery, Doherty insisted: “No.“I’m actually willing to go so far as to go sit down with whatever plastic surgeon they want to put in front of me who can inspect my face,” she said.Doherty said she hopes to make Star magazine pay. “I’m willing to put as much money behind a lawsuit as humanly possible, just to sort of teach them a lesson,” she said.“If you didn’t have it (plastic surgery) and they’re saying that you did, then it’s embarrassing, it’s humiliating.” 

She will win, you know it. 


Will Cruise-Wagner renew with Paramount?
July 31st, 2006 under Tom Cruise/Katie Holmes/Suri. [ Comments: none ]

For many years, Tom Cruise has enjoyed the richest production deal of any A-list star in Hollywood. But in the latest sign of the industry’s increasing obsession with fiscal responsibility, that era may be coming to an end.Paramount Pictures, where Cruise and his producing partner, Paula Wagner, have been based since 1992, currently has a commitment to pay the pair as much as $10 million-plus a year to cover overhead, project development and other costs at their movie company, according to two sources with knowledge of the arrangement. But that sweet deal, which is at least four times what stars such as Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt and Tom Hanks are assured by studios to fund their film outfits, was due to expire today. And Paramount Chairman Brad Grey has told representatives of Cruise-Wagner Productions that the studio would not renew it at anywhere near the current terms, sources said. Instead, Paramount has offered Cruise and Wagner just a fraction of what they’ve been used to: $2 million plus a $500,000 discretionary fund each year for two years, said informed sources, who asked not to be named because of the sensitivity of the negotiations.Cruise’s attorney, Bertram Fields, said Friday, "We received an offer and we are digesting it. We will sit and talk about it." Asked whether Paramount left any wiggle room on its terms, Fields said, "It is not the case that they said this is a take-it-or-leave-it offer. I don’t think my friends at Paramount would ever talk that way." "We don’t receive $10 million or $11 million a year. We do not see anything near that," she said Sunday, declining to be more specific. "We, Cruise-Wagner, do not negotiate in the press. They have made what we would consider a generous offer." Paramount spokeswoman Janet Hill said, "We have the utmost respect for Tom Cruise and Cruise-Wagner Productions. We are currently in discussions to renew their deal."Cruise-Wagner’s production deal actually had expired in January, but both parties agreed to extend it until after "Mission: Impossible III" was released. It was then extended again until today.
