Charlie Sheen -- Chicago, Do Or Die

Charlie Sheen will learn tonight, the hard way, whether or not his departure from "Two and a Half Men" was a good career move or a "career killer" as he performs his second show. A rep for says with the rest of the tour already not selling well they have between 200-300 seats available per show tonight's performance could send the rest of the tour into a tailspin.

And staffers at several ticket agencies tell us there has been a rapid rise in the number of people trying to unload their tickets since last night's disastrous performance. BUT The way Charlie's people see it ... it was just "one group of unruly people who started booing, and it became a mob-mentality situation." 

One "sheep" said, "They wouldn't even let him finish a story," adding, "It wasn't all bad and we're looking forward to Chicago."

Charlie Sheen Booed Off Stage in Detroit

Charlie Sheen abruptly ended the first stop of his tour when audience members started shouting "You suck!"

Sheen ended the first show in Detroit after less than an hour on stage when the audience made it clear they weren't entertained.

When Sheen finally took the stage after several bad attempts to warm up the crowd with clips of his father's films, he seemed to be referring to a script. He showed an old film he wrote and directed starring Johnny Depp, and, when that didn't stick, asked the audience what they wanted to hear.

But then the crowd got very ugly and loud boos and shouts of "You suck!" caused Sheen to retort, "Already got your f---ing money, dude."

We're told Charlie called on Simon Rex for some help sending him on stage to rap -- and when that didn't work they played the new track, "Winning" ... which Snoop Dogg recorded for Charlie. 

We're told that got the crowd excited but when neither Snoop nor Charlie came out on stage they started booing again. (Snoop was in Los Angeles at the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards...Smart guy!)

At that point most of the crowd started walking out -- and the house lights were turned on.

We're told Charlie did come back on stage briefly and invited the people who stayed to move up closer to the stage ... but then he started complaining about his audio and then walked off the stage.

PLEASE MAKE IT STOP...Well Maybe Not, This Is Kinda Funny!

Rebecca Black has jumped in the "Time Machine" and has bought her 15 more minuets of fame. Check out this funny clip from "Funny Or Die"

Lady Gaga Kicks Adam Lambert Out of Her Birthday Party

Lady Gaga and Adam LambertLooks like bad behavior does not sit well with Lady Gaga. Adam Lambert found that out the hard way when he was kicked out of her birthday party for being drunk and unruly.

Close friends of Gaga threw her a surprise birthday party to celebrate her 25th birthday at a Mexican restaurant called La Cita Bar in Los Angeles,  even though Lambert was not one of the invitees, he attended as a guest of the music group the Scissor Sisters.

Celeb blogger Perez Hilton told Morning Dish radio program Thursday, "Adam showed up beyond drunk. Super sloppy embarrassingly drunk!"

It was said Lambert began some intense fist-pumping and kept beating on the walls until he actually punched a hole in the bar's low ceiling. "Adam acted like an animal. He kept jumping up on the tables and chairs and screaming. When they brought the cake out he tried to smear it in Gaga's face and put a doll from the cake in her mouth!"

Eventually, Gaga had enough, and she had her security throw Lambert out of the party.

Penelope Cruz gets Hollywood Walk of Fame Star

Penelope Cruz
Oscar winner Penelope Cruz unveiled her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame star Friday, flanked by leading men Javier Bardem and Johnny Depp.

The event is timed ahead of next month's release of "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides," in which she stars with Depp.
The Spanish star says that when she came to the United States in 1994, she only knew how to say "How are you?" and "I want to work with Johnny Depp" in English.

She jokes that now, she knows how to say "I want to work with Johnny Depp again."

The 36-year-old actress co-starred with husband Bardem in her Oscar-winning role in "Vicky Christina Barcelona." They welcomed their son in January.

Japan Workers of the Nuclear Power Plant Expect to Die

The mother of one of the atomic "samurai" working to bring Japan's stricken nuclear plant under control has said her son and his colleagues expect to die as a result of their efforts.

Meanwhile, there are reports that additional workers are being offered big money to dash into the radiation-drenched heart of the Fukushima Daiichi plant, perform a job, then withdraw.

In a phone interview with Fox News, the tearful mother of a 32-year-old worker said: "My son and his colleagues have discussed it at length and they have committed themselves to die if necessary to save the nation."

"He told me they have accepted they will all probably die from radiation sickness in the short term or cancer in the long term," the woman added.

"They know it is impossible for them not to have been exposed to lethal doses of radiation."
The woman did not give her name, because she said the workers had been asked by management not to speak publicly about their ordeal, in order to minimize panic.

There are also indications that the workers aren't being provided with some crucial safety equipment. Japan's interior minister said that not all of the workers were given lead sheeting to protect themselves from the floor--which may be contaminated by radiation--while sleeping.

"My son has been sleeping on a desk because he is afraid to lie on the floor. But they say high radioactivity is everywhere and I think this will not save him," said the mother.

In another bleak sign, there are reports of additional workers being offered up to $5,000 a day to act as "jumpers"--so called because they "jump" into highly radioactive areas to quickly perform a task before fleeing with minimal exposure. But even at those rates, many candidates are turning the work down, Reuters reports.

"My company offered me 200,000 yen ($2,500) per day," one subcontractor in his 30s told a reporter."Ordinarily I'd consider that a dream job, but my wife was in tears and stopped me, so I declined."

And Ryuta Fujita, 27, told the Tokyo Shimbun newspaper he was offered $5,000 to go into Reactor 2, but likewise declined.

"I hear that guys older than 50 are being hired at high pay," Fujita said. "But I'm still young, and radiation scares me. I don't want to work in a nuclear plant again."

Last week two workers in Reactor 3 were taken to hospital after their feet were exposed to 170-180 millisieverts of radiation. The average dose for a worker at a nuclear plant is 50 millisieverts over 5 years.

Because so few workers want to venture into the plant, it's proving hard for TEPCO, that company that runs it, to assess whether efforts to cool the fuel rods are working, or even to fully diagnose the problems.

Robots are usually used for this type of work, but Fukushima's interior is so filled with debris that it's difficult for robots to operate there.

Bill Murray Finally Signs On to 'Ghostbusters 3' ... and 'Ghostbusters 4'

Who ya gonna call? The answer is "all of your friends," because the Ghostbusters are back in action OMG, It's about time.

In an exclusive interview with franchise director Ivan Reitman, sources say that Bill Murray has finally agreed to reprise the character of Dr. Peter Venkman and team up with Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and Harold Ramis for not just one, but two 'Ghostbusters' adventures. They are set to be filmed concurrently and released back-to-back for Christmas 2012 and Christmas 2013.

The development of 'Ghostbusters 3' has been brewing for years, but news about the project really started to heat up in the past 12 months. For quite some time, the delay in getting the movie made has been Murray, who was vocal in his displeasure with the previous draft of the screenplay written by Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg. But back in the fall, Dan Aykroyd told Vanity Fair that he had taken over scripting, and then last month, while promoting 'No Strings Attached,' Reitman revealed that Murray had seen the newest draft, and going forward with a new 'Ghostbusters' installment would come down to his approval.

Charlie Sheen Records a Song With Snoop, Rob Patterson and Simon Rex


Charlie Sheen called in music biz heavy hitters -- Snoop Dogg and ex-Korn member Rob Patterson , and Simon Rex -- to record a song for his tour, No this is not an April Fools Joke, though we wish it was.

The foursome got together at Charlie's Beverly Hills pad on Thursday night -- where they recorded "Winning."

Sheen will roll out the track during his upcoming one-man show.

Britney / Minaj Tour?

Britney Spears has reached out to Nicki Minaj as her opening act for her upcoming concert tour ... and lawyers for the two are in "serious talks." We're told it's looking very good that Nicki and Britney will reach an agreement in the next day or so.

Nicki would take the place of Enrique Iglesias -- who bailed at the last minute because his ego could not take opening for Britney.

Nicki is currently on tour with Lil Wayne -- those concerts end on April 28. Britney's tour begins June 17 in Sacramento.

Go Daddy CEO Kills Elephant; Company Embattled in Controversy

Go Daddy CEO Bob Parsons has released a video of himself killing an African elephant, drawing outrage from animal rights groups. We will not show the picture because It's horrible.

The video begins with foreboding music, first showing the damage that the elephant has inflicted on the crops of an African village and then following Parsons and his team as they stalk the elephant. According to captions in the video, Parson believes he will "save" the village by killing the elephant.

Then we hear loud noises.

"Bob Parsons fires first," the text says. "Bob Parsons fires again. Both shots hit home."

We see a photo of Parsons standing over the elephant's body, and then AC/DC's "Hells Bells" plays as "hungry villagers butcher the elephant."

In a surprising touch, most of the male villagers are wearing bright orange hats with the GoDaddy logo, and the camera zooms in on the logos as the men descend on the animal's carcass.

"Even though the elephant was huge, there is not enough meat for everyone," reads the text.

Parsons, a former U.S. Marine and Vietnam vet, is the CEO, founder and sole investor of GoDaddy. The video was shot on March 8, 2011, while Parsons was vacationing in Zimbabwe. Parsons posted the clip on his personal blog.

The controversial video, described by the Village Voice as "a strange mix of machismo and colonialist vibes" and "pretty gross" by Business Insider, has drawn condemnation from PETA and other animal rights groups as well as rival web domain registration companies. released a statement saying that "it's not necessary to kill elephants to feed those in need" and offering to donate a portion of profits for new domain registrations to the charity Heifer International, while is offering to give a percentage of their profits to

GoDaddy has previously courted controversy with its racy TV commercials featuring scantily clad women. Parsons has called the ads "fun, edgy, and a bit inappropriate." I don't know, we might have to change domain host, we cant support this.

Was American Idol's James Durbin's "Pepsi Moment" In Bad Taste?

When "American Idol" rocker James Durbin mentioned Pepsi--the arch nemesis of longtime "Idol" advertiser Coca-Cola, and sponsor of rival program "The X Factor"--on "Idol's" live broadcast Wednesday night, he was probably most concerned that he'd inadvertently started a cola war (as sponsor-wary host Ryan Seacrest swooped in quickly to plug "Idol's" preferred soda of choice). But it turns out James may have offended more than just advertising executives or diehard Coke-drinkers.

During his quite literally blazing cover of Elton John's "Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting" Wednesday, an onstage piano was lit on fire, and when Ryan questioned James about the potentially dangerous pyro, James quipped: "I have a lot of hairspray in my hair to keep it from jumping around so much--so the one thing I was worried about was having a 'Pepsi moment'!"

James was, of course, referring to an infamous 1984 incident, during which the late Michael Jackson's hair was set on fire by faulty pyrotechnics on the set of a Pepsi commerical. It was obviously James's attempt, failed or otherwise, at a joke--and it was a little amusing to see Ryan squirm like that. But according to TMZ, the Jackson family didn't find the remark very funny, and now James is under fire, so to speak.

"We were shocked to see this. It's nothing to make light of and everybody should be focusing on who was responsible for Michael's death," a Jackson family rep told TMZ. The source added that Michael's father, Joe Jackson, was particularly peeved that no one at Fox deemed it necessary to edit James's comment out of "Idol's" tape-delayed broadcasts in later time zones.

The young singer took to his Twitter page today to address the controversy, insisting that he never meant to make fun of the late King Of Pop (any more than he likely meant to give Pepsi free advertising). "For anyone talkin..I said pepsi NOT MJ! I have no disrespect for Michael. I grew up singing his art," James tweeted. "I guess youll take it how you want it...Talkin about MJs passing is too soon. Making a reference to an incident 25 years ago..not too soon. The stab was at pepsi people." Look James No matter what you call a pig and how much you try to sugarcaot its its still a sugar coated "Pig" the routine was in bad taste, say your sorry own up to it and have a Coke and a Smile. Doesn' any one at Idol pre approve these performances anyway?

Lindsay D.A. Says Selling Surveillance Tape Means Nothing

The prosecutor in the Lindsay Lohan case says the fact that the alleged victim/jeweler may be selling views of the surveillance video online will have no bearing on the criminal trial.

Danette Meyers says it doesn't matter that Kamofie & Company selling views of the video for $2.99 a pop. Meyers says, "The issue is whether Lindsay stole the necklace, period."Meyers believes the defense will try and take advantage of the online sale, but she says, "That will just add around 30 minutes to cross examination.  That's it."

Meyers Tells TMZ she doesn't think the jewelers' credibility will be harmed by the $2.99 deal.  Lindsay has said the necklace was a loan and she didn't steal it.  Meyers says it gets back to the issue, If she didn't steal it, "Why then did Lindsay return the necklace to the police?"

And sources say the owners of Kamofie & Company "got a raw deal" and haven't seen a penny of profits from the sale of the video, at least not yet.  The sources say the owners were taken advantage of, and the contracts they made for the sale of the tape are now being reviewed by lawyers.

5 Browns' Dad Gets 10 to Life for Abusing Daughters

Keith Scott Brown the father of classical piano group “The 5 Browns” was just sentenced to 10 years to life in prison for sexually abusing his three daughters back when they were children. He was charged with one count of first-degree sodomy upon a child and two counts of second-degree felony sexual abuse of a child back in February and pled guilty. Brown faced a possible sentence of 25 years to life on the three counts -- but under the plea agreement, Brown must serve at least 10 years of his sentence.

The abuse allegedly took place between 1990 and 1998.

Ticket Brokers Unable To Sell Charlie Sheen Tickets, Losing Money...Not Winning!

Charlie Sheen may have received his money for selling out his tour, but the ticket brokers that snapped up seats to re-sell are not doing to well.

Sheen's relatively quiet week in the press has left him out of the public spotlight and companies like StubHub scrambling to unload open seats. As of Monday, there were 2800 seats available for his New York shows.

A broker told the newspaper, "I'm worried. I need him to do something else stupid so I can unload all these tickets. We bought them on a whim, and I guarantee we're going to take a loss." He purchased 85 tickets to Sheen's shows - and has sold less than 10. "If he isn't filled up with drugs, he won't be funny. People who buy tickets now, they're going to see a car crash."

An amateur broker purchased over $1500 in tickets to shows in big cities like Boston and Chicago has so far sold one ticket - for under face value. "Basically, if I opened the newspaper tomorrow and saw that he was dead, my first reaction wouldn't be 'Darn, I really liked his movies.' It would be 'Sweet! I get my money back from Ticketmaster.'"

Chris Brown's 'F.A.M.E.' Debuts At Number One Despite Recent Bad Press

Chris Brown F.A.M.E.Despite his recent violent outburst on Good Morning America, racy photos that hit the 'net and the "Oh maybe I shouldn't of said that" moment, Chris Brown has rose above the negativity surrounding him lately and scored a number one debut with his new album, "F.A.M.E."

Brown performed on Tuesday night's episode of Dancing With The Stars; and prior to the show, host Tom Bergeron made it clear to producers that he didn't want to interview Brown. The host said that he couldn't guarantee that he wouldn't bring up Brown's 2009 Rihanna beatdown while interviewing him, (Why would he feel it important that he'd have to.) after what happened after Good Morning America host Robin Roberts questioned him about the events (with questions he approved beforehand, no less). After his appearance on GMA, Brown reportedly flipped out, broke a window in his dressing room, removed his shirt and then walked down the streets of Manhattan in a huff. But regarding the new album - it's Brown's first number-one ever, selling over 270,000 copies.

Note to Britney Spears, whose new album "Femme Fatale" dropped on Tuesday: if anyone asks you about that head-shaving nervous breakdown - break a window. You'll top the charts.

Adult Star Jenna Jameson & Fighter Tito Ortiz Split?

Tito Ortiz says the rumors that he and Jenna Jameson have separated are untrue even the story that Jenna allegedly threw his expensive watches in the ocean. Tito says he and Jenna are still together, although he did mention a "big argument" recently.  As for why Jenna wasn't wearing her wedding ring yesterday, Tito says it doesn't matter they are still together.

It was also asked did Jenna allegedly throw some of his expensive watches in the ocean after a New Year's Eve fight and he had to hire a scuba diver to retrieve the items.  Tito says the real story is that his kids like throwing things in the harbor which they did with his expensive glasses and that's what the scuba guy was looking for.

The PCD creator held auditions for an all-new version of the sexy recording group Pussy Cat Dolls yesterday in L.A. and tons of hot women showed up to try out! "When I'm creating the next group, it's really finding that sexiness," Antin says. "It's about the whole package. Obviously I'll look for a triple threat. I want girls who are incredibly talented, incredible singers, incredible dancers. Beautiful girls on the inside and out." Robin adds, "You gotta be able to love it. I need commitment. It's like boot camp." The search for the new group will be part of a reality show Antin is developing with Kim Kardashian as a producer.

Glee Star Lea Michele Involved in Car Accident

Lea Michele was involved in a car accident early Friday morning.

The 'Glee' star was on her way home from work when her car was hit on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles. "A couple of drunk girls hit her, got out of the car, giggled that she was famous, said something like 'are you drunk, too?' Then they drove off," said a source close to the actress.

"Lea was hit and notified the police," says the 24-year-old's rep. "She was not injured and is fine."

This isn't the first accident Lea Michele has suffered. The actress was involved in an earlier incident prior to auditioning for her role on 'Glee.'

"For my second audition I got into a massive car wreck, left my crashed car in the street and ran into the audition with cuts and glass in my hair," she said. "And then on the final audition, I had the worst neck ache from the car accident." I am glad your OK Lea, and since this happen on "Friday" doesn't Lea look allot like Internet sensation Rebecca Black....Hmmmm?

Enrique Iglesias Bows Out As Britney's Opening Act

Enrique Iglesias dropped out of the upcoming Britney Spears concert tour because his ego couldn't handle being her opening act. Lawyers and agents for Britney and Enrique were working out an agreement for weeks, and the terms were "finessed" to make Enrique appear to be a co-headliner.  We're told both sides agreed to the deal and that's why the announcement was made on Tuesday.

But just hours before Britney's camp went public, Enrique was on the phone with various people connected with the tour in lengthy conversations in which he made it clear -- he was, in reality, Britney's opening act and he wanted out. One source says the deal was actually very favorable to Enrique according to TMZ ... "great terms and great placement."  But we're told it all came down to taking the stage before Brit -- too much to handle. So money can't buy you "everything" especially humility. Come on E.I. I mean its not like your a bigger start than Britney or does your ego blind you from that reality also...

D.A. Won't Prosecute Lindsay in Betty Ford Case

The Riverside County District Attorney has decided not to file criminal charges against Lindsay Lohan in connection with the altercation last December between Lindsay and a Betty Ford staffer. The D.A. believes there is "insufficient evidence" to prosecute Lindsay.

Lohan was under investigation for battery after a scuffle with Dawn Holland, while there for treatment. The case involved an alleged altercation that happened after Lohan and her roommates left the clinic and came back from a bar at 1:03 A.M. on Dec. 12. The altercation is categorized as a "hand to hand battery."

The District Attorney claims the investigation was like any other and was not given special treatment. "It wasn't looked at any differently than other cases, and we didn't put any special priority on this," Hall said. "We also had to re-interview subsequent times several witnesses in the case."

Donald Trump Says Whoopi Goldberg Comments 'Insulting'

Donald TrumpDonald Trump responded to the flack created by his comments on "The View" about President Obama's citizenship--and called Whoopi Goldberg's accusation that his "doubts" about Obama had something to do with race "insulting."

Trump appeared on the ABC show last week and set Goldberg off by saying that there was "something on [Obama's] birth certificate that he doesn't like."

Goldberg called this "the biggest pile of dog mess I've heard in ages" and asked, "it's not 'cause he's black, is it? ...Because I've never heard any white President asked to be shown the birth certificate."

On Monday's "Fox and Friends," Trump struck back. when asked if his comments had anything to do with race, he said, "absolutely not. I like Whoopi. I've always had a good relationship with Whoopi...but frankly, I mean, I think that's insulting that she brings up--what does that have to do with race?"
Trump said that people "asked John McCain for his birth certificate. They've asked others for their birth certificate. They asked Bush for his birth certificate, by the way...and they would ask me for my birth certificate."

Steve-O Arrested in Canada

"Jackass" star Steve-O was arrested in Canada yesterday for assault with a weapon -- but the alleged incident that led to the arrest happened 8 YEARS AGO.

Law enforcement sources confirm ... Steve-O was stopped by customs when he got off an airplane at Calgary International Airport, when officials noticed there was an outstanding warrant out for his arrest.
The warrant was issued back in 2003 -- for an incident in which Steve-O allegedly attacked somebody with an unknown object. So far, the identity of the victim is not yet public.

Steve-O was placed behind bars for a short while -- before going in front of a judge. He was soon released on $10,000 bail which the actor had to pay IN CASH (It pays to be a Jackass I guess).  Steve-O is due back in court in May.

'Sucker Punch' Star Emily Browning once 'Bella Swan' hopeful of Twilight suggested by author Stephenie Meyer for role

Emily Browning who was once the 'Bella Swan' hopeful of the Twilight Saga talks exhaustion and schedules in a new interview and what it was like to be suggested for the role by author Stephenie Meyer. Browning says that, “It’s really strange,” the actress laughed. “It’s bizarre…What actually happened is that I was asked to audition not take the part, but to just audition shortly after ‘The Uninvited’ had finished filming,” the actress said. “And I’m not the type of person who can just work back-to-back. So I was just exhausted, and I was like, ‘I’m sorry, but I just can’t sign on to a trilogy right now.

Russell Brand: Marriage is 'Mundane' but 'Spectacular'

Comedian and actor Russell Brand gushes about his wife in the new issue of Details magazine, but says admits that marriage is 'mundane'. He tells the mag that being married to his wife, pop singer Katy Perry, is "at once the mode mundane and spectacular thing in the world."

"There are a lot of areas where I've simply relinquished decision-making. It really does make my mates laugh, though."
The "Hop" star also opens up about coping  with his addiction. “The only way to cope is with a program.  If you stop doing recovery, even eating too much chocolate, something will flare up, and I know where that leads, because I’ve been there before.  To me, gravity is heroin, and then death.”
More quotes from his interview below.

On his tabloid-fueled rocker-sex-god persona:
“Well, it seems obvious that to turn myself into a character—incredibly theatrical and rock-and-roll and languid and sexualized—was to emphasize areas where I was confident, to draw the eye from the obvious deficit of a man only just getting over being a junkie.  I’ve very confident in the physical manifestation of a rocker.  And there are aphorisms I still deem tight: the carnal self is the true self.  In that barbaric, marauding period of promiscuity, there was a type of Aleister Crowley ‘Do what thou wilt’ as the sum of the law.  That voice you use when you come?  I was using it to perform.  Not some distant, attic-dwelling emotion brought out occasionally, like a front room you never use except when the vicar visits.  I was in there fucking all the time.”

On being cast in Forgetting Sarah Marshall:
Aldous Snow was initially written as a proper English chap, a writer.  “We were convinced the casting director had played a gag on us,” says director Nicholas Stoller. “The hair, makeup, clothes—I think he had 18 belts on? Jason [Segel, the film’s star and screenwriter] asked Brand about the role, and he said he’d ‘had a cursory glance’—what a thing to say to a director and writer.  Asked about improv, it was as if he’d never heard of that either.  Then he started in.  When he left, Jason got up and did a jig.”  The part was rewritten.

Amy Adams to Play Lois Lane in New 'Superman' Movie

Amy Adams Snyder's 'Sucker Punch,' came in second this week at the box office, but he had bigger news to report as the director phoned actress Amy Adams from Paris to let her know she had been chosen to play Lois Lane in his upcoming 'Superman' movie, due in theaters in December 2012.

On choosing Adams to play one of the most iconic love interests in superhero history, Snyder told the LA Times, "It goes back to what I've said about Superman and making him really understandable for today. What's important to us is making him relevant and real and making him empathetic to today's audience so that we understand the decisions he makes. That applies to Lois as well. She has to be in the same universe as him [in tone and substance]."

Adams joins a cast that includes Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman, as well as Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as Kent's adoptive parents here on earth.

The hunt is still on for the film's villains, rumored to be the trio of Zod, Ursa and Non, who last battled Superman on the big screen in 'Superman II.' Actors who are rumored for those roles as of now include Edgar Ramirez and Michael Shannon.

Emily and Brad from the Bachelor Fakin' It?

A staffer snitch from the popular ABC show revealed that Bachelor Brad Womack and Emily Maynard are just pretending for the cameras. According to the insider snitch, after many make ups and breakups, Emily has finally ended her relationship with Brad.

Also following their recent admittance of a break-up on The Bachelor finale, but they look to be going stronger than ever. Photos of the pair were posted by one of Brad’s pals on March 17 who wrote, “Wow! I guess you can’t trust tabloids after all.” They sure look pretty happy!

The pair were likely hanging at one of Brad’s Austin bars, perhaps the Dizzy Rooster, which seems to be his personal favorite.

The friend included four photos of the duo, probably on their last day together as Emily, 25, was later spotted arriving back at Charlotte-Douglas Airport in North Carolina on March 17 — wearing her engagement ring.

The Riverside County District Attorney's Office is once again pursuing possible assault charges against Lindsay stemming from the alleged altercation she had with a Betty Ford employee back on December 12, 2010. Lindsay (without the Lohan)  was completely aware the DA had begun interviewing witnesses in her case, but she didn't seem worried at all.

Lindsay denies pushing the woman first. The staffer reportedly scolded Lohan for allegedly returning past curfew after spending the evening at a local bar, and demanded the actress take a drug/alcohol test. It was during that exchange that that the woman reportedly "put her hands" on Lohan.

The actress claims she told the woman, "Take your hands off of me" and then "pushed back," according to the report.

Lindsay had been receiving treatment at the Betty Ford Center and its facilities, about 120 miles east of Los Angeles, since late September. A judge overseeing her probation stemming from a 2007 drunk driving case has required Lohan to remain at the rehab center until Jan. 3.

Black Swan' Double: Hattin' on Natalie Portman

The professional dancer who worked as Natalie Portman's dance double for the Academy Award-nominated film, 'Black Swan,' is claiming she's the victim of a "cover-up," Entertainment Weekly reports. The ballerina told the magazine the film and its producers are misleading the public about how much dancing Portman actually did in the movie. (Sounds like a lil' jealousy brewing)

"Of the full body shots, I would say 5 percent are Natalie," says Sarah Lane, 27, an American Ballet Theatre soloist. "All the other shots are me." Lane performed most of the film's complicated dance sequences and allowed Portman's face to be digitally grafted onto her body.

In a L.A. Times article published earlier this week, Portman's fiancé and 'Black Swan' choreographer Benjamin Millepied said otherwise. "There are articles now talking about her dance double [Lane] that are making it sound like [she] did a lot of the work, but really, she just did the footwork, and the fouettés, and one diagonal [phrase] in the studio," he said. "Honestly, 85 percent of that movie is Natalie."

But Lane doesn't agree. "The shots that are just her face with arms, those shots are definitely Natalie," she said. "But that doesn't show the actual dancing."

Lane confessed she was never promised specific billing for her role but was disappointed to see herself barely credited: she is only acknowledged as "Hand Model," "Stunt Double," and "Lady in the Lane" (a brief walk-on role).

One of Lane's most blabber mouth moments was that 'Black Swan' producer Ari Handel asked her not to talk about her work to the press. "They wanted to create this idea in people's minds that Natalie was some kind of prodigy or so gifted in dance and really worked so hard to make herself a ballerina in a year and a half for the movie, basically because of the Oscar," Lane said.

"It is demeaning to the profession and not just to me. I've been doing this for 22 years.... Can you become a concert pianist in a year and a half, even if you're a movie star?"

To her credit, Portman never hid the fact she had a double. "I do have a double for the complicated turning stuff," Portman told press last year. "It was not anything I ever could have done in a year, nothing I could've caught up with. But I think it was just better for all of us if I did as much as possible." So come on Sarah what is the real reason for you telling everyone this "Shhhhhhh info". You did a job you signed a contract you got a check in a Oscar winning movie.

Bret Michaels to Sue Tony Awards

Bret Michaels blames the Tony Awards for causing the brain hemorrhage that nearly killed him after he was whacked in the head by a piece of scenery while performing on the show in 2009.

Michaels has filed a lawsuit against Tony Award Productions, CBS and others  blaming producers for not instructing him on how to safely exit the stage after his performance was over because while he tried to exit, he was "smacked" in the face by a piece of the set.

Michaels claims he had to be hospitalized for a broken nose and a cut lip.  Six months after the awards, Bret nearly died from a subarachnoid brain hemorrhage. Michaels insists it was NO coincidence.

In his suit, Michaels claims, "One of the most common causes of this type of hemorrhage is head trauma ummmm like the one Michaels suffered at  the Tony Awards." Michaels notes, "Through his sheer will to live, to see his children grow up, [he] was able to survive this trauma."

Bret says producers have "failed and refused" to remedy the situation and even blamed him for the mishap at the Tony Awards, claiming he "missed his mark." Michaels is suing for unspecified damages. A rep for the Tonys had no comment.


Say it ain't so...even though we knew the day was coming. The final original episode of 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' will air Wednesday, May 25, the Associated Press reported. The talk show host's production company, Harpo Productions, confirmed the date Friday. No word on who will be on the show.

Though the show has been in reruns the past few weeks, Winfrey Tweeted on Thursday that she was "hard at work planning the final shows." She also said new episodes would begin airing April 7.

Winfrey shared her decision to end her show after 25 years with viewers last November. It was prayer and careful thought that helped her decide, she said. "I love this show. This show has been my life. And I know when it's time to say goodbye. Twenty-five years feels right in my bones and feels right in my spirit."

After her final show, Winfrey will turn her focus and attention to her new cable network, OWN (The Oprah Winfrey Network.)

OWN launched Jan. 1, and the network's programming slate serves up a potluck stew of stars -- everyone from Black Eyed Peas maestro (who contributes the single 'Own It' as a network anthem), Wynonna Judd and her mama Naomi (starring in the original OWN series 'The Judds'), Fergie, the fallen Duchess of York ('Finding Sarah'), Carson Kressley, Nancy O'Dell, Suze Orman, Dr. Oz, Dr. Phil McGraw and more. Plus: lots of hugs, makeovers and learning.


Britney Spears is headed to Las Vegas Friday to perform a mini concert at Palms Casino Resort's Rain Nightclub, which will be filmed for an upcoming MTV special.

Spears, 29, blasted on Twitter Friday morning to confirm the rumors that she'll indeed be onstage in Las Vegas. "Looks like my little secret isn't a secret anymore," Spears Tweeted, before asking who of her more than 7 million Twitter followers will be attending. "You're all invited. Be there or be square bitch!"

Hotel and nightclub executives have been tightlipped about what the show will entail (but is anything a secret anymore), Spears will take to the stage twice Friday – once at 8 p.m. in a ticketed event, then again at midnight for a performance that will be open to the public. The appearance in Vegas comes just days before the release of Spear's new studio album, Femme Fatale, which will debut Tuesday.

Feud Alert! Kirstie Alley Smites "Big Bad Drunk Wolf" George Lopez After Piggy Comment

Kirstie Alley Twitter

Is someone sore that he isn't dancing with the stars this season?

A day after George Lopez poked so-called fun at the latest crop of contestants and invoked the "this little piggy" nursery rhyme when talking about Kirstie Alley, the actress doesn't appear to be taking the late-night host's unconstructive criticism to heart. In fact, she laughed in the face of his mean-spirited slam.

Will Ferrell On 'The Office': Replacing Steve Carell, Guest Starring In Four Episode Arc

Ferrell, a long-time friend and co-star of Carell -- the two featured together in 'Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy' will join the workplace comedy for a four episode arc near the end of this season, reports.

Carell's Emmy-winning time on 'The Office' is winding down, and the show has been waiting to reveal his replacement at Dunder Mifflin. Ferrell will play a branch manager that comes in as Carell's Michael Scott begins leaving, and will take over for at least one episode.

"We are proud to continue The Office's tradition of discovering famous talent," 'The Office' show runner Paul Lieberstein (who plays Toby on the show) said, "and we hope that once America gets a good look at Will, they'll see what we see, tremendous raw sexuality."

Ferrell and Carell's careers often intertwine: Carell tried out for 'Saturday Night Live,' claiming he lost out to Farrell, and they starred together in 2005's 'Bewitched.'

UPDATE: **SPOILER ALERT** Ferrell's addition was announced on television in a promo for the show's next episode, airing April 14th. Carell's Michael Scott laid the groundwork for his exit, proposing to girlfriend/co-worker Holly and announcing that they were moving to Colorado. Carell's last episode will air on April 28th.

"No one can replace [Carell]. That goes for him as an actor, because no one has the sense of humor he does, but also there's no person who has his incredible positivity and professionalism, and just a really good heart. So we're losing a friend first and foremost."

In addition to Ferrell, the show's season finale will have two other major guest stars; series creator -- and British series boss -- Ricky Gervais, and Will Arnett.

Chris Brown Apologizes for GMA Freakout

The temperamental R&B singer, 21, is sorry for his backstage tantrum on Good Morning America, which followed a tense, Rihanna-question-dodging chat with Robin Roberts on-air.

A contrite Brown, who is still on probation for his 2009 assault of then-girlfriend Rihanna, spoke up about the incident during a Wednesday appearance on the BET video show 106 and Park.

"First of all, I want to apologize to anybody who was startled in the office, or anybody who was offended or really looked, and [was] disappointed at my actions," said Brown, who reportedly trashed his dressing room and smashed a window, moving GMA's hair and makeup personnel to call security. "Because I'm disappointed in the way I acted."

GMA host Roberts isn't holding a grudge for the tense chat. On Wednesday, she said on-air that she was "shocked like everybody else," by how things turned out. She and Brown "have had a wonderful relationship," she added. "We'd love to have him back."

Lindsay Lohan is Going to Trail

Lindsay met with her lawyer, Shawn Holley Tuesday afternoon.  Holley laid out the options but left the decision to Lindsay, who said she's firm about her innocence and wants to push it to the wall at trial.

Lindsay's felony grand theft case will now be assigned to Judge Stephanie Sautner who is considered a tough but fair judge and the preliminary hearing is set for April 22.

Lindsay faces both jail and prison as the case moves on jail,  if Judge Sautner decides Lindsay violated her probation, and prison, if Lindsay is convicted of grand theft.

We have been saying Lindsay was crazy not to accept the plea deal, not because she'd be found guilty of grand theft ... but the way the system is set up, Lindsay could be thrown in jail for the probation violation before her grand theft trial.

Here's the good news for Lindsay.  If she had accepted a plea deal, she would have been placed on 3 years probation. Lindsay has a credible defense in the grand theft case, and if Judge Sautner agrees NOT to rule on the probation violation until a verdict is reached in the grand theft case, Lindsay could get off with no time served.

Sheen Comin' Back to 'Men' Ehhhh, Not So Much!

There is "no chance" of Charlie Sheen coming back to "Two and a Half Men" according to sources connected to the production of the show.

A story has been circulating that CBS wants Charlie back on the show.Ok so Charlie was hired by Warner Bros. and, Only Warner Bros. can bring him back, and sources (the guys or girls who know everything) directly connected to the production tell us there is "no chance" of that happening.

"Men" creator and executive producer Chuck Lorre has been holding meetings about the future of the show and possible re-casting, but Charlie is NOT COMING BACK.

The story that CBS offered him his job back is simply not true.  CBS can't rehire Sheen....

Still developing!

Film legend Elizabeth Taylor dies at 79

LOS ANGELES - Screen legend Elizabeth Taylor, film goddess died Wednesday at age 79.

She died of congestive heart failure at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where she had been hospitalized for about six weeks, publicist Sally Morrison said.

"All her children were with her," Morrison said.

Taylor had extraordinary grace, fame and wealth, and won three Oscars, including a special one for her humanitarian work. But she was tortured by ill health, failed romances and personal tragedy.

"I think I'm becoming fatalistic," she said in 1989. "Too much has happened in my life for me not to be fatalistic."
Her eight marriages — including two to actor Richard Burton — and a lifelong battle with substance abuse, physical ailments and overeating made Taylor as popular in supermarket tabloids as in classic film festivals.

Taylor disclosed in November 2004 that she had congestive heart failure. But she still periodically dismissed reports that she was at death's door, saying she used a wheelchair only because of chronic back problems that began at age 12 when she fell from a horse.

"Oh, come on, do I look like I'm dying?" she said in May 2006 in a rare television interview on CNN's "Larry King Live." "Do I look like or sound like I have Alzheimer's?" Tabloids report such things "because they have nothing else dirty to write about anybody else," she said.

The London-born actress was a star at age 12, a bride and a divorcee at 18, a screen goddess at 19 and a widow at 26.

She appeared in more than 50 films, and won Oscars for her performances in "Butterfield 8" (1960) and "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" (1966), in which she starred opposite Burton.

In later years, she was a spokeswoman for several causes, most notably AIDS research. Her work gained her a special Oscar, the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award, in 1993.

As she accepted it, she told a worldwide television audience: "I call upon you to draw from the depths of your being — to prove that we are a human race, to prove that our love outweighs our need to hate, that our compassion is more compelling than our need to blame." She will Truly Be Missed

ABC Won't Press Charges Against Chris Brown

Chris Brown  is lucky that ABC does have a heart and decided not to press charges for his alleged window-smashing meltdown at "Good Morning America" Tuesday. The NYPD will not investigate the matter because there is no complaining victim.

That's especially good news for CB -- because he's currently on probation for beating up Rihanna and could have faced prison time if the judge violated his probation on grounds he committed vandalism.

We're told the judge will not violate Chris' probation unless New York prosecutes him ... and that's not going to happen.

Justin Bieber, Rihanna to be Featured on Japan Aid Album

Justin Bieber and RihannaUniversal Music Group has announced that it will be releasing a digital-only compilation album featuring some of the label's biggest stars, in an attempt to raise funds for earthquake and tsunami-stricken Japan.

Gaga and her loyal fans had raised over $250,000 already for the Japan Relief effort on there own. Singer Ne-Yo is also contributing to the country's aid by performing at several charity concerts in Japan , one of which took place Yesterday, and another on Thursday, March 24.

Chris Brown Freaks out after 'GMA' Interview, Not Happy With The Questions...

Chris Brown was pissed behind the scenes at "Good Morning America" this morning ... smashing a window and storming out without a shirt, all because of on-air questions about the Rihanna incident.

Brown performed and was interviewed by Robin Roberts live from the Times Square studio when she began asking about the infamous incident. Brown tried to redirect the questions to focus on his album -- but Roberts continued to ask about Brown's legal issues stemming from the Rihanna incident.

We're told after the interview, Brown freaked out, storming into his dressing room and screaming so loud, the people in hair and makeup became alarmed and called security.

Brown was out of control, and one source present tells us he smashed a window in his dressing room, with the chair, and the glass shattered and some shards fell onto 43rd and Broadway.

We're told by the time security rushed the area, Brown had ripped off his shirt and left the building, blowing off another performance he was supposed to do for the ABC website.

And sources say on his way out of the building, Brown confronted a segment producer, got in his face and stared him down. People from the show got in between Chris and the producer to diffuse the situation. Brown is on probation for the felony beating and he's required to obey all laws. 

UPDATE 6:49 AM PT:  Brown just tweeted, "I'm so over people bringing this past s**t up!!! Yet we praise Charlie sheen and other celebs for there bulls**t."

UPDATE 6:59 AM PT: Brown has already deleted the previous tweet ... and added a new one that reads, "All my fans!!! This album is for you and only you!!! I'm so tired of everyone else!! Honestly!! I love team breezy!!"
