Leonard Nimoy's "Minor" Abdominal Surgery

Where's Bones when you need him?

Leonard Nimoy is currently recovering after going under the knife for "minor benign abdominal surgery."

Which, for those keeping score at home, is slightly less painful than a Vulcan nerve pinch.

Word of the actor's condition came courtesy of the Carpenter Performing Arts Center in Long Beach, Calif., which was set to host "An Evening With Leonard Nimoy" on Saturday night.

"Leonard Nimoy will not appear tomorrow evening," the statement read. "He has had emergency surgery for a minor, benign, abdominal condition and is recovering beautifully.

"[Wife] Susan Bay Nimoy extends her thanks to everyone for their get-well wishes."

No further details on the operation, including where or when it took place, were given. (The 79-year-old Star Trekker was tweeting up until Tuesday, when he was in New York to attend a performance by Vulcan heir Zachary Quinto's Angels in America.)

Nimoy also canceled an appearance at Massachusetts MOCA. Both the missed events are expected to be rescheduled.

We know the erstwhile Mr. Spock will live long and prosper, but here's hoping he'll also have a speedy recovery.

jessica alba was a feminist at age 5

the stunning gorgeous golden globe nominated actress Jessica Alba began rebelling against her parents at the age of 5!!

Jessica Alba was a feisty kid! She said she started rebelling against her "strict" parents at the early age of 5. Now, at 29, with a kid of her own, she probably has a much different take on her 'tude.

She explained: "It's always been weird because I grew up in a very traditional, Catholic household. My parents were very strict but I broke away from that at an early age. I was a feminist when I was five. These days, I am much more liberal-minded bit I still respect their beliefs."

As Jessica has grown older she has learned to accept her parents' views, but still considers herself an independent woman. In her latest film Machete Jessica gets to stab a love rival in the eye with her stiletto heels, something she thoroughly enjoyed. She said: "Walking in 3in heels wasn’t as much fun as putting one in someone's eye. It was 104 degrees where we were shooting in Texas and they were not comfortable."

Jessica, who has a two-year-old daughter Honor with husband Cash Warren, is regularly referred to as one of the world's most beautiful women, but she doesn’t think of herself as "sexy". She added in an interview with the Metro newspaper: "I don’t really pay attention to that sexy image. It just goes with the character in the movie. At the end of the day, it's all a part of selling a product.”


too bad a lot of women are scared of calling themselves feminists

Drake Says 'Excitement Factor' Put Nicki Minaj On Hottest MCs List

'She's controlling the radio,' fellow Young Money rapper tells MTV News.

Nicki, Nicki, Nicki. That's what all the talk seems to be about this year in hip-hop, according to Drake.

The Thank Me Later star said Nicki Minaj is a worthy candidate for the 2010 MTV News' Hottest MCs in the Game list, on which she landed at #6, despite not dropping an album yet. Last year, Drake scored the #3 position off the strength of his So Far Gone mixtape.

"I think Nicki should make it based off of excitement," Drake told MTV News. "She's one of, if not the most exciting rapper this year. Feature-wise, she's on tracks with heavyweights killing; not holding her own, but killing. She's controlling the radio. I think that's grounds enough to make it. This year, who really? [Rick] Ross, Nicki. Everyone else hasn't dropped yet. The excitement factor is there. I'm going off of excitement and buzz, 'cause I feel like that's why I made it [last year]. A lot of it was off of the excitement I created for people. But Nicki has a lot to prove too. That album is a hump to get over, man. That's a whole different monster — no pun intended."

The Queens lyricist has made it a habit to outshine superstars on tracks from Trey Songz's "Bottoms Up" to Kanye West and Jay-Z's "Monster." Minaj has also fared well on the charts with her material, landing a #1 Billboard hit with "Your Love."

On Sunday, Nicki will appear on "RapFix Live" with MTV News correspondent Sway on MTV.com to answer fans' questions about her ranking on the Hottest MCs list, her forthcoming debut album Pink Friday and anything else viewers want to ask.

The 2010 Hottest MCs in the Game rollout is now under way! As in 2008 and 2009, the criteria is based on a combination of rhyme skill, flow, buzz, commercial success, business ventures, Web presence and cultural influence. Upload your comments, reactions, arguments and/or your own list to Your.MTV.com or send tweets with the hashtag #hottestmcs — the best responses could be on TV or our hip-hop blog, RapFix!

Tune in to MTV2 for the entire one-hour "Hottest MCs in the Game" special on Sunday, October 24, at 1:30 p.m. ET, where we'll reveal who will be crowned 2010's Hottest MC. Then log on to MTVNews.com following the show to see Nicki Minaj on "RapFix Live" at 2:30 p.m.


Jennifer Grey Tackles ‘Dancing’ Drama Rumors

Despite reports that there is tension behind the scenes of “Dancing with the Stars” aimed at frontrunner Jennifer Grey and professional partner Derek Hough, the pair said they haven’t had time to feel any ill will from their competitors.

“We’ve got enough to worry about. We really don’t see [anything],” Jennifer told Access Hollywood Live’s Kit Hoover.

Jennifer went on to note that she is cheering on her fellow celebs who are all competing in search of that coveted mirrorball trophy in Season 11.

“I’m totally rooting for everybody,” she said. “I just love watching the change each week. I love seeing them just kind of come into their own and find the dance that feels like it fits them and see them come out. It’s so beautiful.”

Video: Woman pays Chris Rock $20,000 to tell off her ex-boyfriend

This has got to be the funniest thing ever. Chris Rock was on stage with Jon Stewart at the Night Of Too Many Stars to rally against autism. When Jon asked Chris what he was offering, Chris said, “Tonight, I will get on the phone and I will curse out your ex.”

It didn’t take long for bidding to reach a whopping $20,000 for the phone call. A woman named Deserae claimed that her ex-boyfriend, Jeff, posted pictures of himself with another woman on Facebook, after they’d been together for an entire year.

Check out the video to hear Chris bust a verbal cap:

The Chilean miner with two viejas is wanted as face of a dating website

Yonni Barrios, 50, who was revealed to have a mistress, is being pursued by AshleyMadison.com, an online service for married people looking to have extramarital affairs.

While he was underground, Mr Barrios's wife of 28 years discovered that he had been seeing another woman for five years after his mistress began keeping a vigil near the Chile mine.

The miner asked both women to be there when he emerged. His mistress Susana Valenzuela, 45, turned up but his wife Marta Salinas, 56, stayed away.

After being rescued, Mr Barrios was greeted by Miss Valenzuela and rescuers, aware of his reputation as a ladies' man, shouted "Go Tarzan". Under the proposed deal Mr Barrios would be required to remain married in order to represent the extramarital dating service.

He would become its Spanish speaking spokesman and appear in television and radio advertisements in North, South and Central America.

Octomom's Doctor: 'I'm Sorry for What Happened'

Octomom's doctor regrets his decision to help Nadya Suleman conceive 8 babies--and he's very apologetic. Dr. Michael Kamrava testified in his own defense in administrative court on Thursday in an effort to keep his medical license, PEOPLE reports.

"I'm sorry for what happened. When I look back at it, I wish I had never done it and it will never happen again," Dr. Michael Kamrava said while wiping away tears.

Dr. Kamrava implated 12 embryos in Suleman. State officials claim this is evidence of unreasonable judgment, substandard care and a lack of concern for the eight children she would go on to conceive in addition to the six she was already raising. Suleman was unemployed at the time.

Officials say the doctor should have sent Suleman for a mental health evaluation instead of doing the procedure.

Interestingly, Kamrava seems to be moving away from previous statements he's made about his actions. Last year he defended the procedure in a 'Nightline' interview saying it was all "was done the right way ... under the circumstances."

OF COURSE he's sorry. He might lose his medical license! What an asshole.

Ceci n'est pas une personne.

'Rabbit Hole' trailer: Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart move us ... to pack Kleenex

by Kerrie Mitchell
OCT 22 2010 05:20 PM ET

I’m a big fan of John Cameron Mitchell’s last movie Shortbus, so I was excited to see him take on an emotionally complex project like Rabbit Hole, a drama based on the Broadway play of the same name. In it, a successful suburban couple (played by Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart) cope with the accidental death of their young son. The duo are already earning Oscar talk after the film’s well-regarded showing at Toronto and now the trailer has landed online. See it embedded after the jump.

The trailer is a doozy, almost stifling in its grief, but with hints of some dark, rueful humor, especially from Kidman, who looks in fine form. Are you in based on this?

Kat Von D Threatens To Sue Her Producers Over Nikki Sixx Diss

Roll out the sterile gauze and get those antibiotics ready! Apparently Nikki Sixx and Kat Von D are slobbering all over each others’ tattoos again, and Kat’s so afraid of hurting her boo’s little baby bunny feelings that she has threatened to sue her show’s own producers if they showed footage of her insulting him. Because she was riding high on boner fumes during her brief but disgusting tryst with Jesse James (and because she is a paragon of elegance and poise) Kat took it upon herself to rip Nikki a new one while the cameras were rolling for her TLC show “LA Ink”. After abandoning Sandra Bullock’s sloppy seconds, Von D reportedly “freaked out” at the possibility that beloved would hear her smack-talking him on any upcoming episodes…and do what? Cry into his black velvet pillows? Write about it in his emotions journal? CALL HIS MOM?

Von D demanded any potentially offensive moments be edited out of the series, as well rejected a “Jesse vs. Nikki” plot line that seems designed to induce vomiting spice up the series. Wow, whatever Kat said must have been harsh if she thought Nikki would care that much. That or the man bruises like a peach…emotionally. We’ll probably have to wait for the DVD to see what she really had to say. Or we’ll just wait until they break-up again. Next week.

Angelina Finds Herself A Good Zombie To Date

Jersey Shore’s Angelina has had her fair share of scary dates but now she’s hit rock bottom, hooking up with a zombie (sort of!).

RadarOnline.com has learned that the reality TV star’s hot rendezvous was a commercial for IFC’s 5-part horror series Dead Set, a scary spoof of reality TV where people are living safely in their Big Brother house while flesh eating zombies have taken over Britain and are multiplying as quickly as they kill.


Sherlock and Benny Cumbermuffins begin take-over of the US.

Modern-day 'Sherlock': Exemplary, my dear viewers
By Robert Bianco, USA TODAY

Welcome to the 21st century, Sherlock — and just when we need you most.
It may seem odd that the most unabashedly entertaining new show of the season is built around an almost overly familiar, formerly Victorian detective, but the evidence is indisputable. Ingeniously reconceived by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, the revivalist team who breathed new life and sharp wit into Doctor Who, this modern-day British twist on Sherlock Holmes takes Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's beloved creation and moves him lock, stock and deductive reasoning into a present-day procedural.

The result is a sharp, funny, clever series that remains faithful to the spirit of Doyle's stories while infusing them with a vibrant spirit of modernity. You'll notice the updates, from the cellphone-provided clues to Sherlock's use of a homeless network of informers, but they're never forced or intrusive and they never fail to form a coherent whole, so you don't feel like you're watching some museum display stuffed into modern dress.

As impressive as Moffat and Gatiss' work may be, it would not register nearly as well without the fabulously amusing star turn by Benedict Cumberbatch, a well-regarded British actor who should now become an American household name. Putting his distinctive stamp on an oft-played role, Cumberbatch turns Sherlock into an adorably aggravating blend of House, The Mentalist and Sheldon from Big Bang — while making him completely, compellingly his own.

Okay, this is weird. Just hours after we posted the news about Snooki coming up with her own line of slippers, we got news that her fellow Jersey Shore star, Jenni “J-Woww” Farley, is forced to shut down her clothing line. Remember? We reported her plan to do a fashion line called “Filthy Couture” not so long ago.

There were talks about ‘trademark issues’ as there’s also a company with a similar name threatening her with a lawsuit. A friend of J-Woww said “Money needed to be returned to the people who had ordered clothing.”

Radar Online reported that J-Woww’s friend said:

“She couldn’t handle the clothing line and didn’t really have the help she needed.”

The friend also said that J-Woww has given up on her clothing line.

“She could have given her line a new name but instead just let it go. She’s no longer designing clothes for her line and I’m not sure if she’ll ever do it again.”

Awww… too bad. Wonder what Snooki has to say about this.


Don’t wince just yet, we know for sure the show is part of your guiltiest pleasure. Snooki from the MTV reality show “Jersey Shore” is not really the star to look up to when it comes to fashion, but you gotta admit that some of her slippers are cute.

And as if God conspires with Snooki, your silent prayers are answered. The reality star announced that she has partnered up with internet slipper retailer, Happy Feet, to launch her own line of fluffy slippers.

There will be three different Snooki Slipper designs available this coming holiday season. The Snooki Slippers will have a Snooki tag and will come in a branded bag designed also by Snooki.

Jersey Shore's Vinny is Serious About Acting

The intoxication of fame and success has hit the Jersey Shore cast in a variety of ways. Snooki, once sexually active, is reportedly now on day ninety of a dry spell, preferring to stay home for quiet nights if there are no cameras around to document her life, she said. Pauly D., the humble guido, is currently filming his own spin-off. And now Vinny, the former aspiring lawyer, is making good on his questionable promise to forgo law school for a real acting career, landing himself a guest spot on MTV's The Hard Times of RJ Berger. He'll play RJ's cooler cousin in an episode titled "My Cousin Vinnie." Guadagnino also announced that he's thinking of moving to L.A. to take Hollywood by storm. They're so far gone now!

I understand he's riding the money train for as long as it lasts but I really hope he goes to law school eventually.


Galifianakis wasn’t in on this awkward interview. “Allegedly.”

Here’s an interview Zach Galifianakis did last week with Gordon Keith, a local TV host in Dallas.  Everyone on the internet is calling it “uncomfortable” and “sphincter-clenchingly awkward.”  I saw it, and just assumed it was just a well-executed gag.  Keith does an incredible job of replicating Galifianakis’ Between Two Ferns shtick, and I assumed by the way the awkward pauses are of almost identical length to Galifianakis’ Two Ferns videos, that Galifianakis was in on it.  Keith however (who it should be noted does do a comedy show), claims that this was not the case.

Kristen Stewart Will ‘Look To The Books’ To Help Her Play A Mom


If you’re a Twilight fan, then you know that Bella Swan aka Kristen Stewart turns into a vampire in the final installment of the saga — Breaking Dawn! But Kristen not only has to get used to being a bloodsucker, she has to play the role of mommy to a half-vampire daughter! “Luckily, it’s written very well and from her [Bella's] perspective once the kid comes,” Kristen, 20, tells VH1. “So, there’s really no way to prepare for that to be honest…I’m just really lucky that it’s written so well. I think I have everything I need.”

While we don’t think it’s a stretch at all for Kristen to play a character who is in love with a hot vampire (who doesn’t love Edward Cullen?), we don’t exactly see her as the maternal type. And unlike your typical mom, Kristen’s character has to deal with a totally different kind of child — a fast-growing one with fangs named Renesmee! “It’s very unique, it’s not the most normal story,” Kristen explains. “So I think I’m just gonna look to the books.”

Tyler Perry Details Graphic Sexual And Physical Abuse On Oprah [Video]

After an emotional interview on Oprah, Tyler Perry finally was able to release details about the demons that have been haunting him since childhood.

As previously reported,Perry joined Winfrey to discuss the abuse he endured growing up as a child, from rape by both male and female relatives to sexual abuse at the hands of a church member.

The actor and playwright has previously discussed his traumatic childhood but took to his Twitter account to say that this account would be much more detailed.

During his touching appearance, Perry described how he was molested by two men at the age of 6 while growing up in New Orleans.

"I was about five or six the first time [it happened]”, Perry said. “ I was building a bird house in his backyard and a man from across the street came over and put his hand in my pants. [At the time] I thought, 'What is this?'"

Mary Anne Spier hates airbrushing

Actress Rachael Leigh Cook is rallying against the perfect portrayal of female stars in the media - insisting she is outraged over the "manipulated images" of celebrities which are fed to vulnerable young girls.

The "She's All That" star has joined forces with Oscar-winner Geena Davis, the Girl Scouts of the USA and The Creative Coalition to attend a summit in Washington, D.C addressing body image issues for youngsters.

Cook admits she's "up in arms" about the relentless stream of airbrushed images of famous women plastered over the pages of magazines, and she's urging young girls not to measure themselves against the impossibly high standards of celebrities.

She tells Fox News, "I did not grow up getting told about how manipulated the images we see of women and girls out there are, and I think it's an absolute travesty that young women are seeing what the media is feeding them. It breaks my heart to be part of an industry and part of a machine that really pushes out these images and propagates these really terrible standards that are false.

"Nothing that you see is real, even if you look at what looks like a candid photo of someone, anything can be done. It is false advertising and false advertising is a crime so why isn't this a crime? I'm just up in arms about it."

And Cook insists the movie industry should be more honest about the images which are presented to the public.

She adds, "People need to know that there are actual lenses that are put on cameras that make people stretched out. If you saw these actors in person, you wouldn't even recognize them as the people you see on TV. It's just all a complete illusion and maybe it should be viewed as art, the way that art isn't real. The way that a picture of a rose can be beautiful, but it's not a real rose."

What do you think ONTD? Should airbrushing/Photoshop be used or not?
...Or just discuss your favorite RLC roles.

Jason Schwartzman on Naked Jonathan Ames and the Death of Publishing + Bored To Death preview clip

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

One of the most remarkable things about Jason Schwartzman is that audiences don’t hate him yet. Which isn’t to suggest that he deserves to be hated. Far from it. But Michael Cera doesn’t deserve to be hated either, and his backlash is still going strong. Schwartzman has thus far managed to elude a backlash, which is kind of amazing for a guy who got his start as the Macaulay Culkin of cult indie movies. Everybody in Hollywood loses their coolness cred eventually. If you’ve followed Schwartzman’s career lately, it’s like he’s been double-dog daring his fanbase to reconsider their adoration. He’s hawked iPad Apps for the New Yorker. He’s been in two indie-pop bands, one of which provided the theme song to a Mischa Barton TV show. He co-starred in movies like Funny People and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, both of which bombed at the box office. He has (or had) an ironic mustache. When he walks into Brooklyn bars, people cheer. And then there’s Bored To Death, his HBO series already well into its second season (it airs Sundays at 10:00 p.m.). Created and written by quirky novelist Jonathan Ames, Schwartzman plays a quirky novelist named—wait for it—Jonathan Ames. The Onion’s A.V. Club recently described the show as “The Long Goodbye for the McSweeney’s generation,” which is the literary equivalent of passing out torches and pitchforks to villagers and pointing towards the old mill. But somehow Schwartzman remains beloved, or at least non-loathed. He’s either very, very lucky, or he’s got the career durability of a grown-up Max Fischer.

The Future Of 'Dollhouse' Comics

Earlier this week, we spoke to "Dollhouse" actress Eliza Dushku about the recent release of the second season of Joss Whedon's over-too-soon Fox series on DVD and Blu-Ray. While we were chatting the actress up about the show, we couldn't help asking for an update on the comics side of the "Dollhouse" universe, too.

In the end, it turns out that there was some confusion all around when it came to "Dollhouse" comics, so today we went straight to the source for clarification on the series' past, present, and future in the comics world: Dark Horse Comics editor Scott Allie.

The main man behind the growing Whedonverse presence at Dark Horse, Allie offered up a complete breakdown of what's out now, what's coming up, and where it all fits in the greater "Dollhouse" mythology. Oh, and it's probably not a spoiler to say that the story is far from over for Whedon's mind-bending house of dolls.

‘Lone Star’ Creator Kyle Killen Still Hoping for Cable Pickup for Cancelled Show

Kyle Killen isn’t giving up. The creator-writer-executive producer of “Lone Star,” the short-lived and critically acclaimed 20th Century Fox Television show about a Texas con-man, still believes the series could air on cable television. “We have 6 completed episodes that function nicely as a mini-season and we’d love to find a home for that,” Killen told Speakeasy on the eve of this year’s Austin Film Festival and Conference, where he’s speaking this weekend and the “Lone Star” pilot will be shown.

After “Lone Star” received dismal ratings in September, Fox yanked it after just two episodes, despite direct pleas Killen made to the public and tons of media coverage that covered the abrupt cancellation. “When you have as spectacular failure as that, it’s definitely the train wreck that people can’t help looking at as they drive by, so all that attention was good,” said the Austin-based screenwriter.

Killen recognizes the hurdles are high, however. Not only do interested networks need to embrace the series, but they must also figure out a way to take a show that has been designed for a broadcast network and reconfigure it for a cable model. “That’s why it’s so rarely happens,”

admitted Killen, who can only point to one recent example: TNT is taking over the L.A. cop drama “Southland,” from veteran producer John Wells (another Austin fest attendee), after NBC canceled it.

Unlikely to happen, but since DirectTV saved 'Damages' anything is possible. I'd still like to watch this.

Sean Parker Reacts to Justin Timberlake in 'Social Network'

As portrayed by Justin Timberlake in 'The Social Network,' Napster founder Sean Parker (who jumped onboard Facebook at age 24 as a founding president) is a Silicon Valley rock star.

But despite the Oscar buzz generated by the fledgling actor for playing Mark Zuckerberg's mentor in the film (co-starring Jesse Eisenberg and Andrew Garfield), the real Sean Parker, 30, isn't quite giving Timberlake a standing ovation.

"It's a great performance of a character that isn't me," Parker told Us on Thursday night, while attending the 2010 Angel Ball, a cancer fundraiser in New York City.

Asked whether Timberlake, 29, should be nominated for his first Academy Award, Parker laughed.

"That's a good question," he replied. "It's not my industry."

Though Parker was ousted from Facebook after a 2005 cocaine arrest (no charges were filed), he still unofficially advises the company. Reportedly worth millions today, and on his way to becoming a billionaire, he has now steered his business focus back to the music industry.

The failing producer, apparently still living in the same year as his production beats, leeches on to teams up with Petey Pablo to produce the track "Britney Spears", the oh-so-imaginative title no doubt reflecting the sheer creativity that was poured into the song.

You can listen to the track and its outdated lyrics including "Y’all got me feelin’ like Britney Spears / Anybody know where Lindsay Lohan is? / Let me do a couple of lines and take a couple of pills / Get drunk, jump behind the wheel", assuming you are even able to decipher them, here.

Looks like someone has been a little too busy digging through the bowels of the Billboard Charts looking for Shock Value II to read the gossip columns eh? Don't worry Timbo, just because Britney was able to see your oncoming irrelevancy and Justin Timberlake had the sense to abandon ship, doesn't mean you won't be able to get it back up.

After all, there's always Madonna.

Marianne talks about her life, love and creative process on Australian tv. The interview is a bit long, but gives a great insight into her life for non-fans or everybody that wants to be! Marianne's new album is supposed to come out next year and there's already a lot of tour dates for Europe in 2011. Check out her official homepage for more.

I just love Marianne so much and though I've literally seen hundreds of interviews there is always new stuff for me. She's my greatest inspiration and music love.

Katy Perry Okay with Rihanna's Wedding No-Show

Rihanna and Katy Perry are BFFs -- and both mega pop stars -- so of course Katy understood when her close pal had to work, rather than fly to India for Katy's wedding to Russell Brand ... this according to sources close to the wedding.

Perry and Brand tied the knot earlier today in a traditional Hindu wedding. But while reports say the wedding was just family friends, sources tell us Katy's good friend Rihanna wasn't in attendance. 

Rihanna was a part of Katy's Las Vegas bachelorette party -- but, according to our source, Rihanna told Katy she couldn't make it because she had to hit the studio.

We're told Katy booked a special room for Rihanna -- but she totally understood why RiRi couldn't hop a plane to India.

Céline Dion is a mom again – times two!

The singer gave birth to fraternal twin boys on Saturday at a Florida hospital at 11:11 a.m. and 11:12 a.m., her rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.

"Celine, René and their son René-Charles are thrilled," says her rep.

One of the boys weighed in at 5 lbs., 4 oz., with the other at 5 lbs., 10 oz.

The twins are healthy, says her rep, but will spend the next few days in an incubator because they were born premature.

"Celine is resting now and they plan to discuss what to name the boys when she wakes up," the rep adds. "René-Charles has been to the hospital to visit his brothers and is just so excited they are here."

Congratulations to them! Can't wait to hear the names.

newspaper provides PSA about ONTD's most popular Halloween Costume

Paper warns against Gaga meat dress

HARTFORD, Conn., Oct. 22 (UPI)  -- A Connecticut newspaper is warning readers of the dangers involved with emulating Lady Gaga's famous meat dress as a Halloween costume.

The Hartford (Conn.) Courant said wearing raw meat like the pop singer did at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards can lead to infections including campylobacteriosis, which can bring about fever, muscle ache, diarrhea, dysentery and other symptoms.

The newspaper said wearing a meat dress, which many experts have predicted to be a popular costume this year, can also lead to toxoplasmosis, a parasitic infection that can lead to brain damage or death among those with weak immune systems.

So what are you gonna be for Halloween, ONTD?

Irish Queen of Pop Nadine gives the most shocking interview of 2010!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Feuds, fallouts, sniping and snubs. For a band who haven't released any new material in nearly two years, Girls Aloud are still making one hell of a din.

And somehow it's Nadine Coyle who finds herself cast as the villain of the piece. Her relocation to LA three years ago has, according to some, rendered a group reunion impossible.

Naomi Watts Still Set To Play Marilyn Monroe, Talks Preparation Process

There's already a picture floating around the Internet of Michelle Williams done up in full Marilyn Monroe garb for My Week With Marilyn, the Weinstein Company movie currently filming in England telling a story set during Monroe's time filming The Prince and the Showgirl opposite Laurence Olivier. But just as the cultural fascination with Monroe takes countless forms, there's plenty of room for more movies about her-- and the next one, Blonde, is still set to start shooting in January.

a Lady Bullock movie post

In good humor, David Lee Roth once took a particularly painful breakup as a sign to get back to work.

It appears that Sandra Bullock has decided to do the same after a whirlwind six month period in which she had a summer blockbuster (The Proposal), another sleeper hit after that (The Blind Side), received Oscar buzz for The Blind Side, won the Oscar, gave a teary-eyed speech with her yet to be outed husband in tow, was wronged in her marriage in a public and humiliating manner, won the nation’s respect by handling the fallout with dignity, announced she had adopted a baby boy and then moved to New Orleans … whew!!!

Not content to sit around and dust off her golden statuette, Lady Bullock has instead decided to seize a golden opportunity and is embarking on no less than four wide ranging film projects. A caveat is in order since Hollywood is notorious for bandying about movie ideas. As everyone knows, no project is a go until someone is willing to cough up the dough. Nevertheless, all of the following Bullock projects are past the rumor stage.

i believe these movies have been posted in seperate articles, but sine it's a slow news day i thought maybe this would be ok to post cuz its about all her upcoming projects.

Most "Interesting" Aloud Girl Soon to be Ridin' Solo?

Over the coming weeks Girls Aloud stars Cheryl Cole and Nadine Coyle will release solo albums. Cheryl's will almost certainly go to No 1 and stay there until Take That knock her off, while Nadine will be glad of a week in the top 10.

If you find yourself unmoved by this, then you're almost certainly wondering, "Where's the ginger one with her new album?"

Source - Was surprised to find this in the Grauniad today; it reads like some pro-Nicola propaganda, otherwise known as Common Sense.

What style of music do you think would suit her? I'd love to hear some kind of Bat For Lashes/Polly Scattergood vibe from her... but jk, bye creativity, more generic dance-pop timez ahead! :(
