      Robert Pattinson Looking Kinda Grim

      Thursday, July 29th, 2010

      Robert Pattinson looked very subdued as he headed towards the morgue.  Don’t worry though it was only on the set in the movie “Water For Elephants“.

      The young actor is preparing to do the scene where he has to identify the corpses of his parents.

      Even the thought of that would make anyone feel pretty grim!

        Former NBA player Lorenzen Wright found dead – police say it appears to be from a self inflicted gun shot wound.

        Thursday, July 29th, 2010
        Lorenzen Wright, a former NBA player has been found dead on Wednesday in a wooded area off  Winchester rd and Hacks Cross about 15 miles outside of Memphis.
        His body was found almost a week after his mother reported him missing.  According to Police there was some confusion when his father reported he was in Europe on vacation after his mother had reported that he was missing.

        Eyewitnesses say that Wright, 34, appears to have died from a self inflicted gun shot wound.  The 911 call reporting a body found, has been passed over to the Memphis police, who are investigating his death.  The incident was originally called in to Germantown police.

        Wright was apparently having financial problems and reportedly his house had been foreclosed on.

        Wright was the 7th overall draft in 1996 and played for several teams during his 13 years in the NBA, including the Atlanta Hawks, Memphis Grizzlies and Sacramento Kings and later for the Cleveland Cavaliers during the 2008-2009 season.

        Connecticut News Channel 8 reported that foul play was considered at the time Wright had gone missing, but police report that they do not believe foul play was involved after examining the scene.

        Janet Jackson is the Face of Blackglama Fur

        Thursday, July 29th, 2010

        Janet Jackson joins the elite that include icons such as Audrey Hepburn, Ray Charles, Sophia Loren, Marlene Dietrich, Elizabeth Taylor, Lauren Bacall, Faye Dunaway, Cindy Crawford,  and  many more as the latest celebrity to be featured in the Blackglama fur label ads.

        Jackson is seen here wrapped in the famous brand of Blackglama fur that has become known for its naturally rich,dark brand of minks.  The brand built its reputation on designing quality-elegant, luxurious mink products.

        Jackson was chosen for this year’s “legend” ad campaign because of the image she represents.  Blackgama’s CEO, Joe Morelli says, “Janet is an icon in the world of music and entertainment, a true legend.  She represents everything that this storied campaign embodies. Janet is to entertainment what Blackglama is to luxury.”

        On the anti-fur front, the animal rights organization, PETA expressed great distaste for Jackson’s involvement with the Blackglama.   They deemed her endorsement as “desperate”.

        Blackglama’s advertising agency, Laspata DeCaro was the creative force  behind the fur campaign and Rocco Laspata was the photographer.  Janet Jackson’s Blackgama fur ads hits national print outlets this September in publications such as Vogue,Vanity Fair,The New York Times, Harper’s Bazaar and more.

        Lindsay Lohan worried she won’t get Family Time before heading to Rehab!

        Wednesday, July 28th, 2010

        Lindsay Lohan has just one week left to serve of her “90 day sentence”, being scheduled for early release on Sunday or Monday due to overcrowding.  Having got away with the largest part of the sentence her lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley complained in an interview with People that she may not be allowed her family time before heading for rehab.

        “She’s a little upset right now,” said her lawyer, “She’d like to spend some time with her family, and there’s at least some question as to whether or not she’ll have to do directly to rehab.”

        Presently, Lohan will have a day from the time of her release to make personal arrangements before rehab but Holley says the concern now is that the troubled star will go straight to the rehab facility.

        “I think it would only be fair for her to spend some time with her family and that’s what she’d like me to emphasize to the judge,” Holley said.

        Ms. Lohan may be upset but after all a 14 day jail stint hardly makes you estranged!

        Soul singer Al Goodman dies during surgery

        Wednesday, July 28th, 2010

        Al Goodman, founding member of the R&B trio Ray, Goodman and Brown  died on Monday of heart failure during surgery to remove a tumor at Hackensack Medical Center in New Jersey, according to his daughter, Rhonda Goodman.

        Goodman, 67 was “joking and laughing” before his surgery, his daughter said.

        Goodman was a member of the Moments — an R&B group that formed in Hackensack, New Jersey, in 1968 — along with Harry Ray and William Brown. They topped the soul charts in 1970 with “Love on a Two Way Street” and again in 1975 with “Look at Me (I’m in Love).”  In 1978, the trio renamed itself Ray, Goodman and Brown.   12 months later, the trio hit No. 1 with “Special Lady.”  The group regularly had hits in the soul charts into the 1980s. Their last Top Ten single was in 1986.

        Goodman who was married for 34 years is survived by his wife Henrietta, five children and one grandson.

        “There’s mourning all over the world — in England, in Germany and in Japan,” said Marshall Thompson, leader of the Chi-Lites, on Tuesday. “We’re all mourning for Al Goodman.”

        The funeral is planned at the Bergen Performing Arts Center in Englewood, New Jersey on Monday.

          Holly Madison on ‘When I Was 17′ Recalls Dumping Her Boyfriend At Prom.

          Wednesday, July 28th, 2010

          Holly Madison spoke about her teenage years on “When I Was 17” and revealed that when she was a teenager growing up in Astoria, Oregon, the Playboy Playmate wasn’t all that popular.

          “Other people would describe me when I was 17 as, like, a freak or aloof,” Madison says on this week’s episode.  “I was always, like, white makeup, black lipstick. Like, I wasn’t particularly hot in high school, but I guess nobody was where I was from.”

          Although she admits slacking off for the first three years of high school and skipping school, she realized at 17 that if she ever wanted to get out of her small town, she needed to go to college and got it together and passed with straight A’s.

          “I just couldn’t wait to get on with my life,” she added. “Move into a big city and just make things happen. I was kind of bored.”

          Of her senior year she said:

          “My senior year was definitely memorable. I had a lot of fun getting ready for prom and my mom made my outfits for me so I got to design them.  I went with my boyfriend, who was a couple years older than me. By the time we got to prom, all my friends kind of split up [from dinner], and sadly my most memorable moment of my prom was finding out my boyfriend had cheated on me with this potato-headed girl.  I was so angry. I drove him home, dropped him off, broke up with him,” she continued. “And that was that.”

          Driven him home!  I don’t think so, would you?
