Movie star Michael Douglas has announced that his six month battle with Stage III throat cancer has been won. Douglas announced his victory over the disease during a Monday Today Show interview with Matt Lauer that will air on Tuesday.
Douglas told Lauer:
“I feel good, relieved. The tumor is gone. But, you know, I have to check out on a monthly basis now to maintain. I guess there’s not a total euphoria. I’ll probably take a couple of months of getting checked out. But it’s been a wild six-month ride.”
In October Douglas completed his last round of chemotherapy and was told by doctors that his chance of survival was 70 to 80 percent.
So the current Agent 007, Daniel Craig (seen above half-naked on a beach and grabbing his crotch) was supposedly spotted in Venice, California, at a gay bar and later smooching outside in the parking lot. Of course, if Craig, who has played the epitome of the ladies’ man, James Bond, in two movies is actually gay or bisexual, he wouldn’t be the first or last male to be so in Hollywood. A good 15 years ago, someone threw out a statistic that 75% of male actors are gay, though some maintain a lifestyle of being straight. At least, that was supposedly true before many actors started “coming out.”
Alexis Houston, whom Matt Lauer did not have an affair with (according to Houston), is neither related to singer Whitney Houston nor actually a she. Houston was previously known as Wellington Houston before a sex change operation, and Stuart Houston before that.
The audio of a 911 call by a hotel employee suggests that Slipknot bassist Paul Gray had a hypodermic needle and pills near his body. The employee went to Gray’s room to check on him after his mother was unable to reach him on the phone.
According to a rep, Simon Monjack, the recently deceased widower of Brittany Murphy who was scheduled for heart bypass surgery, died of a broken heart. Brittany passed away at 32 on Dec 2009, and according to the rep, Simon’s life was turned upside down after that. He’ll be buried beside her in a private service. Truly sad. It’s easy to say that’s nonsense, but friends and family have relayed similar stories over the years about someone they knew who passed on not long after their spouse did. In most such cases, the couples were senior citizens, but not always.

Today Show host Matt Lauer has apparently split from his model wife of nearly 12 years and mother of his three kids, Annette Roque. Or wait, was it that she threw him out on his ass for cheating on her, possibly with one or more Canadian broadcasters?
Apparently he moved out of their house after two days of fighting, which ended with Annette no longer wearing her wedding ring. But the move actually happened a while ago, as they’ve been living apart for two months. I guess Annette didn’t want to go through deja vu, as Lauer supposedly cheated on her a few months before their wedding. (She didn’t find out about it until two years afterwards.)
The couple have three children. Lauer was also previously married, from 1981-88, to writer/ producer Nancy Alspaugh. Alspaugh said she’s not shocked to her about Lauer and Roque’s breakup (the two had previously filed for divorce). Lauer was also the host who conducted the interview in which Tom Cruise revealed to the world what an expert on the history of psychiatry he is. Try not to laugh too hard while you watch the following video clip.
