Almost four years after Brittany Murphy died, new evidence is pointing to fairly strong clues of poisoning.
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.
Christina Aguilera has postponed her 2010 summer tour until 2011, citing a busy schedule promoting her new album Bionic and the film Burlesque. Huffington Post says it’s because her new single tanked. Well so what. She pulls the fewest antics of stars her age and boy can she wear clothes. Or as evidenced above and below. not wear them.
David Hasselhoff is said to have been hospitalized in LA this past weekend, possibly for another drinking binge — something that’s already happened to him several times in the past few years. It makes me wonder if the first thing PR people teach actors is how to deny everything.
Bret Michaels, who has been in hospital at least three times this year, won Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice reality show and says in a Facebook note that while he’s not 100% yet, he has “every intention of trying to continue the tour starting Friday in Biloxi.” On the other hand, he skipped the Celebrity Apprentice afterparty.
Brittany Murphy’s widower, writer/ director/ producer Simon Monjack, was due for heart bypass surgery, which he kept putting off. Unfortunately, he put it off for too long, passing away last Sunday night of a heart attack at 39. Brittany was another entertainer who went to soon, dying of cardiac arrest in Simon’s home in December. She was laid to rest on Christmas Eve. Her mother Sharon, who lived with the couple, was the unfortunate person who found discovered Brittany and Simon unconcious in both situations.
Slipknot bassist Paul Gray passed away on Monday at 38. No cause of death has been announced yet. The band were known for their ‘dark metal’ sound and for wearing masks.
Miley Cyrus says that she’s not going to go to college right now. I guess if you’re already a billionaire at 17, going to college doesn’t seem like a worthwhile prospect. On the other hand, she says that her grandma went back to college at 62. Ok, good luck with that plan then.
Iran has freed award-winning Iranian filmmaker Jafar Panahi on about $200K in bail. Panahi, who was jailed two months ago on poorly specified charges, went on a hunger strike. At least one social media campaign, on Facebook, was launched in hopes of having him released.
