The Talk of Tinseltown; Get Well Bret

Michael Douglas' son Cameron was sentenced to five years in prison after pleading guilty to drug charges. In addition to prison, Cameron was ordered to pay $25,000 and serve 450 hours of community service. He will also spend an additional five years under supervision when he's released.


A Christian group has come to the aid of Stephen Baldwin. A website has been set up so fans can donate money which will be deposited directly into his bank account. Stephen filed for bankruptcy last year after he racked up more than $2.3 million worth of debt. A statement posted on the site reads, "Stephen Baldwin of the famous Baldwin Brothers is no stranger to the Hollywood life of glitz, glamour and the public eye. However, because of his religious convictions it has caused him the loss of many jobs and most recently, a highly publicized bankruptcy." There are a lot of Christians in Hollywood who seem to have no problem making money. It must be nice to have people you don't know putting money into your bank account. Where can I sign up?


Jennifer Carpenter has announced that husband and costar Michael C. Hall has fully recovered from cancer and is already back to work. This is great news. I love me some Michael C. Hall and Dexter.


Denise Richards and Kendra Wilkinson are attempting to set their single parents up on a date. According to a source, Denise heard that Kendra was planning an episode of her show where she helps her mother find a new man. Since Denise's dad lost his wife to cancer in 2007, Denise thought he might be a perfect candidate. This would be sweet if it were actually sincere.


Tori Spelling is reportedly developing a daytime talk show for ABC. It would be similar to "Regis and Kelly", but aimed at a younger audience. If marketed properly, this could actually work. Would you watch?


Lindsay Lohan has missed two depositions regarding the lawsuit she's facing from three men she took on a joyride in a hijacked SUV back in 2007. Lindsay went shopping during the first deposition. She had a hard time getting a ride the second time since her license is suspended. What about that mom of hers? Why couldn't she drive her to court? Lindsay has one last chance to appear on May 4. I hope she doesn't show up and gets sent to the clink for 30 days.


There was initially speculation over whether or not Kate Hudson purchased tiny implants. Now, there's speculation over whether or not she's pregnant. I don't think she cares what people think since she's making zero effort to cover up either.


Bret Michaels remains in critical condition after suffering a brain hemorrhage late Thursday evening. This comes one week after having an emergency appendectomy. Doctors believe both are complications from his type 1 diabetes. The doctors are currently trying to locate the source of the bleeding. Bret is awake and remains positive.

I hope Bret makes a full recovery. He's one of my faves.

Tori's chest looks so awkward in that photo. And maybe Kate Hudson just put on some weight? Although her belly does look a little bigger.

JP said...

Agreed Ashley... they're pushed up just a wee bit too much.

And no I wouldn't watch Tori although I'm probably not her target demographic...

And Bret has impressed me a lot on Celebrity Apprentice... but seriously what was up with that 1 second "Get Well Soon!" send off last night? Way to just through that together!

And Kate Hudson... I dont' care what size her breasts are... I'd do her.

McGriddle Pants said...

I've always loved Tori Spelling, but whats going on with her boobs in that pic?!?

And I hope Kate hasn't bought new boobies... I always appreciated how she embraced her small ones :)

Elizabeth said...

Oooh, thank you, Robert Pattinson!!

And I am SO happy to hear about Michael C. Hall. We love him.

Salt said...

SO happy about Michael C. Hall!! What a relief.
And so freaked out over Bret! I only just heard about this last night and it makes me so sad.

I will say NO to Tori's show if only because her boobs are scaring me half to death in that photo.

Tracie said...

I'll pass on Tori's show but where do I sign up for that free Christian money?

Kristina P. said...

I was watching Celebrity Apprentice last night, and he did a great job! I hope he's OK.

Baby Sweetness said...

Can't Kate Hudson just have gained enough weight to be a size 0 (instead of 00 or the juniors department)?!

Sorry - bitter, party of one...

Karen said...

I'm not a Bret Michaels fan, but I do hope he recovers, and soon!

And I think it would be awesome if Lindsey gets some time in the slammer.

PeaceLoveApplesauce said...

I love Tori & would most def watch her show!

Monique-aka-Surferwife23 said...

Not a Tori fan. But for that fact, I would still probs watch.

You saw my Tweet. I will die if anything happens to Bret. Die.

He was a staple in my childhood.

Kiki said...

awesome. i would so watch a Tori talk show. i am a fan of BH, her Lifetime movies and her reality show. i think Kate has just put on some weight, whether it be baby or junk food. i think Tori should've never gotten her breasts done. she looked better those early BH years. if Kate had augmentation, well, then more power to her. there are plenty of flat-chested actresses i can relate to and admire, and that make me feel sexy about my body.

WILDasaMINK said...

Poor Bret! I really hope he recovers and gets back to making some more sleezy reality television! Oh and singing Every Rose Has Its Thorn on every single episode.

Cathy said...

Michael Douglas' son is creeping me out....mainly because he looks so much like Michael Douglas.

Tori's boobs are weird.

I knew I wasn't the only one who thought Kate was preggers!

I will fully embrace Christianity if it gets me free money!

Em Static said...

Kate's been in New Orleans recently filming a movie. If she's anything like every other human being I've met who has spent any amount of time eating in NOLA (myself included) she probably just gained some weight.

The food down here is notorious for that.

MiMi said...

I would watch if Tori ISN'T hosting.
Denise and Kendra = blech.
I'm so sad about Bret. He's a hottie mchotterson.
Also, I love who the Talk was brought to me by today. :)
Have you seen the new blog about Twilight?

Michelle Hoad said...

I did not know they were married. What planet have I been living on. I can't quit thinking of them as brother and sister, so now I'm a little grossed out at the thought at them doing the nasty.

♥Aubrey said...

That's a lot of news to soak in...

First up...Douglas' son deserves to sit in jail and pay those fines. I think he's getting off easy actually!!!

Second...a Tori Spelling talk show will sink faster than the Titanic.

Christina said...

I always look forward to this post!

meredith said...

i want jennifer carpenter's body.

i won't watch tori spelling's show.

and i loooooove who brought us the talk of tinseltown today :)

Tara said...

thank you, robert pattinson, for filling me in on all this.

ps- get well soon, bret. i feel bad about calling him a mess last week. =/

Ashley said...

That Tori pic disturbs me...
I love Tori, but she should stick to Tori & Dean.

Nikosmommy said...

I'd watch a talk show with Tori...she's surprisingly funny. And it's obvious that Kate Hudson IS preggers.
LaLohan deserves jail time. How HARD is it to catch a ride to court for your deposition? I mean really, catch the bus if you have to!!

Jewels Diva® said...

Tori Spelling wants her show aimed at younger viewers.... do they know who she is?

Molly said...

Tori's boobs look jacked up. Seriously. Who dressed the woman?

While we are on the topic, the boobs are the first thing to grow when preggo = pregnant Kate Hudson. Who gets itty bitty implants anyway?

Poor Brett Michaels. So sad. Hope he recovers soon.

Jamie said...

I would definitely watch Tori, I hope that is true, I LOVE her!

browneyes_24b said...

I love Dexter! I'm so glad Michael C Hall has recovered! I think it's so wild that Michael and Jennifer are married in real life, but play a brother/sister duo on Dex. :D

Cranky Mommy said...

Happy SITS day!
Stephen Baldwin is blaming being a Christian for his debt, bankruptcy and poor acting skills? That sounds like a ringing endorsement for a religion if ever I heard one.

Nightingale said...

OMG! I SO didn't know that dexter and his sister were MARRIED!! I am now officially in love with this blog! And yay for kicking cancer!

Oh and YAY for you! Happy SITS day!

Love Nightingale Dancer

Holly said...

Since I moved form LA I am not as up on my celeb gossip...thanks for the catch up. Tori needs to get her breasts fixed for sure. I totally think Kendra and Denise should hook up their parents...I see an new E! show.

Ma What's 4 dinner said...

Can't Tori Spelling just go away already? I'd be perfectly happy just seeing her every once in while on some VH1 Where are they Now special????

Katie said...

Who needs Yahoo when I could just come here for all my celebrity news?! :) ...and who can resist that ending!

Hope you have a fabulous SITS Day!!!

Lindsay @ Just My Blog said...

Is it weird that Dexter's sister is Michael C Hall's wife?

I really don't think I could watch a talk show with Tori Spelling...She's so....I don't know. It seems like all she does is TV.

Bret Michaels...what a beautiful man. I do hope he recovers fully and quickly so I can keep staring at those gorgeous eyes of his.

Maggie S said...

Regis and Kelly have a lower age limit on their show? What are they doing on that show anyway? I let my kids watch it when they are sick. Maybe I should pay better attention?

Bethany said...

I will always love Kate regardless, and that Douglas boy did not inherit the good looks at all!

Tiffany said...

I love celebrity anything!! I hope Lindsey goes in the clink too...And Tori Spelling = No Way In Hell for me!!

Caitlin said...

This is exactly the kind of gossip round up my life was missing! Quick and to the point! Thank you!

Stopping by from SITS. Enjoy your day!

A Real Housewife said...

a) Stephen Baldwin--what a dirt bag!!
b) i can't wait for more dexter!
c) tori's boobs look ridiculous in that dress
d) i think kate hudson is positively adorable....even if she does float from man to man
e) you know i heart my fave vampire. if chlamidia was brought to us today by robert patz, i'd pay attention. ;)

beautywoome said...

Really? He gets donated money because he can't handle his own? Hollywood is full of incompetent human beings and their behavior shouldn't be re-inforced! That's like giving a child a cupcake for throwing a tantrum!!!

In any event, yes, SIGN ME UP TOO. Sick of everyone but us laypeople getting free money.

Second, would only watch Tori on TV if she removed those misshapen gelatinous blobs from her chest. They look like Silly Putty formed into natural rock shapes!

Mama Lisha said...

Congrats Today!!! By the way where is Alec Baldwin in all of this?

Embraced Chaos said...

Stopping by from SITS. I would not watch Tori (overrated) and it's so sad about Bret. I like him too. As always, love your celebrity updates!

Scrappy Girl said...

So glad I stopped by from SITS...adding you to my blogroll. I {heart} vampires too!

Ashley @ Little Miss Momma said...

So this blog is pretty darn fabulous and I am so excited I found it on SITS! I WILL be coming back!

Happy Mommy said...

I love anyone who loves Michael C Hall. Dexter is the most under rated show on tv! Cool blog.

mommylicious said...

I love Bret Michaels too, I was his biggest fan back in the 80's. I can't stand Tori Spelling. I don't think she can act.

Kenya said...

I cant believe Michael Douglas; son!!! He couldn't find anything else to do with his money??? Wow. Just wow!

Erin said...

So many comments!! Can't Lilo just take a taxi?! I can't believe anyone would send S. Baldwin money. Ridiculous! I hope that K. Hudson got implants. It would be nice to see someone get large A or small B implants - maybe set a trend away from all of the Heidi dolls. Please don't let her be pregnant. A dozen ppl would have to submit for a paternity test. Tori Spelling - go away. You annoy me. You stole another woman's husband - when she was pregnant?!?!

Hope you are having a great SITS day!

Erin said...

No word verification!! Woo-hoo!! Leaving another comment just to say thanks!

Cozy knits for you said...

I would watch tori I already watch her on oxygen. And its not the dress her boobs always look that bad I don't get why she doesn't get them fixed.
And DEXTER is the BEST show and I'm SO happy he is cancer free. But had NO clue they were married and it kinda creeps me out a bit!
Love the blog btw came in from SITS.

:corinne: said...

I know this is a day late...But Happy SITS day! Love your blog. Some great celeb gossip for sure. Ha! Sorry but I really like Steven Baldwin. I appreciate his honesty in being a christian and the sacrifice he's had to make in Hollywood because of his honesty. Hey Christians aren't perfect either even with money.
Great stuff though...Oh & NO I would NOT watch Tori Spellings new talk show if it happens. Not a big fan of hers. She needs a cheeseburger. LOL Ok, ok I'm done. Again, Congrats and I'm gonna continue peeking thru your blog. :)

Shelley said...

Tori's chest/neck area looks weird to me.

Oh...LiLo...

Kate Hudson always looks great! If she wanted to get implants thats her decision and as for her tummy...it looks like a baby bump (which would be exciting!) but if she gained weight then I would love her even more because that would mean she EATS!!
