Lauren Alaina to Drop Out of Finale of American Idol

May 24, 2011

I don’t watch the show, but this could definitely make for some interesting television this evening on Fox!

From TMZ:

Lauren Alaina may not get her shot to be the next “American Idol” because she has lost her voice …spies on the set tell TMZ … and it could be the break of a lifetime for Haley Reinhart.

We’re told during the rehearsal this afternoon, Lauren — who has been losing her voice — was supposed to sing three songs.  She got through the first, struggled through the second and was unable to perform the third.

“Macho Man” Randy Savage Dies

May 20, 2011

Growing up in the 1980′s, “Macho Man” Randy Savage was one of my idols. I loved waking up on Saturday mornings and staying up late on Monday nights to catch WWF (now WWE) on TV and see his feuds with Hulk Hogan, Jake “The Snake” Roberts and “Ravishing” Rick Rude.

His match against Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat may be the greatest match of all time!

RIP Macho Man!

From TMZ:

Florida Highway Patrol tells TMZ … Savage was driving his 2009 Jeep Wrangler when he veered across a concrete median … through oncoming traffic … and “collided head-on with a tree.”

Savage was transported to Largo Medical center, where he died from his injuries.

Savage’s wife was a passenger in the vehicle during the collision — but survived with “minor injuries.” She was transported to a different local hospital where she was treated. 

Comedian Greg Giraldo Dies

September 29, 2010

TMZ is reporting that comedian Greg Giraldo has died today at the age of 44. His death occurs five days after he was hospitalized for an overdose.

I always loved watching him on the infamous “Celebrity Roasts”. He definitely was a funny guy!

RIP!

From TMZ:

Greg had been hospitalized in New Brunswick, NJ after he overdosed on prescription pills last weekend. A source said the overdose was not a suicide attempt.

Giraldo was best known for his celebrity roast appearances. He had also been a judge on “Last Comic Standing.”

From TMZ:

Cops say they responded to the gas station in Crescent Springs after receiving a complaint about two men fighting in a cab.

When cops arrived to the scene, they located Jericho and Helms, who were “manifestly under the influence of an alcoholic beverage.” Both men were then arrested — but cops say the wrestlers were cooperative with police.

Crescent Springs is roughly 20 miles from Cincinnati, where the two men participated in a WWE event on Tuesday night.

From WKRC:

Erlanger Police were called to the Shell station on Buttermilk Pike in Crescent Springs on Wednesday morning around 4:45 a.m. Police say someone called for help with two men fighting in a cab.

When officers got there they arrested 35 year old Gregory Shane Helms, also known as “Hurricane Helms” in the wrestling world. He and his companion, 39 year old Christopher Irvine, also known under the WWE name “Chris Jericho”, are charged with Public Intoxication.

Rush Limbaugh Hospitalized

December 30, 2009

Popular conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh was rushed to a hospital in Hawaii this afternoon with chest pains. It has not been made clear at this point if he has had a heart attack.

From Reuters:

KITV television station said Limbaugh was in serious condition at Honolulu’s The Queen’s Medical Center after being treated at a hotel by paramedics, citing unnamed sources.

Hospital administration coordinator Wendy Rogers told Reuters she could not comment on the report. Due to patient confidentiality rules, it is up to patients to decide if they want information to be released, she added.

Limbaugh, a popular but controversial voice in American politics, was vacationing in Hawaii at the same time as Democratic President Barack Obama and his family.

From TMZ:

According to the report, Rush was in “serious condition” when he arrived to the hospital.

Attempts to reach a rep for Limbaugh were unsuccessful.

UPDATE #1: TMZ has confirmed paramedics did respond to the Kahala at 2:41 to attend to someone with “chest discomfort.”

UPDATE: 11:29 PM EST — Sources inside the hotel tell TMZ the hotel took drastic measures to get the mystery patient — reported to be Rush Limbaugh — out of the resort without being seen.

We’re told hotel security shut down a wing of the hotel and the guest elevators — the patient was transported using the employee elevator bank.

From Gather.com:

Rush Limbaugh was admitted to a Honolulu hospital with chest pains around 3:00 PM local time today, which was a little before 8:00 PM in his home state of Florida. His condition was reported to be “serious.”

The 58-year old talk-show host was vacationing at the Kahala Hotel, a 345-room luxury resort with its own, private 800′ beach, just 10 minutes from Waikiki.  Paramedics treated him briefly before transporting him by ambulance to Queen’s Medical Center.

Limbaugh’s medical history does not include any known heart attacks. In 2001, he told his listeners that he had lost most of his hearing as a result of an autoimmune inner-ear condition.  This necessitated a surgical procedure to place an electronic device in his skull to restore his hearing.

Report: Brittany Murphy Died of Natural Causes

December 21, 2009

The Associated Press is reporting that a Los Angeles County coroner has ruled that actress Brittany Murphy died of natural causes.

From the Associated Press:

Murphy, 32, collapsed in the shower of the West Hollywood home she shared with her husband, British screenwriter Simon Monjack, on Sunday and was pronounced dead two hours later at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Her death “appears to be natural,” assistant chief coroner Ed Winter said.

Cops are investigating the “Clueless” starlet’s sudden death. An autopsy is planned for today or Tuesday reportedly against the wishes of Murphy’s hubby, Monjack, who told hospital staff he didn’t want one performed, according to TMZ.

The Hollywood stunner’s weight loss in recent years sparked rumors of eating disorder or drug use, which she denied. She reportedly suffered from flu-like symptoms and was vomiting in the hours before her death, according to TMZ.com. Meanwhile, friends and family showed an outpouring of support for the young starlet.

Were Tiger Woods Injuries Caused By His Accident…Or His Wife?

November 27, 2009

I’ve been wondering this all day since I first heard reports that Tiger Woods was in an accident outside his home early this morning.

It was about the same time that I read reports that Woods was supposedly cheating on his wife.

Now, check out this story on TMZ.com and decide for yourself.

From TMZ:

We’re told he said his wife had confronted him about reports that he was seeing another woman. The argument got heated and, according to our source, she scratched his face up. We’re told it was then Woods beat a hasty retreat for his SUV — but according to our source, Woods says his wife followed behind with a golf club. As Tiger drove away, she struck the vehicle several times with the club.

We’re told Woods became “distracted,” thought the vehicle was stopped, and looked to see what had happened. At that point the SUV hit the fire hydrant and then hit a tree.
