Madonna Paid For Brother To Go To Rehab

The pop star says she tried to help her unfortunate elder brother before he became homeless by checking him into a clinic in Texas.

The singer's brother Anthony Ciccone hit headlines this month when it was revealed he has been living on the streets of Traverse City, Michigan since losing his job at the family's vineyard.

Ciccone told reporters his "family turned their back on me", but insisted he didn't want help because of his showbusiness connections.

In a new interview with Britain's Daily Mail, it is revealed Madonna tried to help her brother six years ago by paying for him to undergo a two-month stay in a rehab clinic in Texas to battle his drinking problem, but the treatment didn't work.

Ciccone is adamant he didn't need rehab and is convinced his family should have done more to help him.

He tells the publication, "I'm a zero in their eyes; a non-person, an embarrassment. If I froze to death, my family probably wouldn't know or care about it for six months.... My family seem to think rehab is some kind of magic panacea for life's ills..."

However, Ciccone, 55, insists he doesn't resent his famous sister's success, but he does wish she would get in touch.

He adds, "I'm proud of my sister - but it's been a burden, because I can't be me; I have to be related to a celebrity. People have their ideas and expectations. My sister's a multi-millionaire - but she earned it, I have to give her credit for that. But you'd think there'd be some more family loyalty, and that's not the case... Just to communicate would be nice... There isn't much else that exists outside of what she's doing."

Charlie Sheen’s Anger Management Headed to FX

It looks like Charlie Sheen will be back on TV next summer! FX has confirmed they picked up 10 episodes of his new sitcom Anger Management. If the show is a hit, the network will commit to 90 more episodes.

“We think that Bruce Helford, Joe Roth and Charlie Sheen have come up with a wonderful, hilarious vehicle for Charlie’s acting talents — and a character we are very much looking forward to seeing him play. ‘Two and a Half Men’ has been an outstanding component of FX’s schedule for the past 14 months, and we have every confidence that Anger Management will soon be as well,” said FX President and General Manager John Landgraf.

Anger Management is loosely based on the 2003 film of the same name. Sheen will play “a mild-mannered, non-confrontational man ordered to attend group anger management sessions led by a therapist who could probably use some anger management himself,” according to Lionsgate.

Sheen, 46, was fired from the CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men in March following weeks of bizarre behavior and a public feud with show creator Chuck Lorre. His character, Charlie Harper, was killed off and replaced by internet billionaire Walden Schmidt, played by Ashton Kutcher.

Robert Pattinson Opens Up About Twilight Sex Scenes With Kristen Stewart

Summit Entertainment

In a press conference in Stockholm, Sweden on Friday, Robert Pattinson opened up about filming sex scenes for Breaking Dawn with real life love Kristen Stewart. Admitting that they both found the scenes “difficult,” Pattinson said the set was “crazy” with everyone giving different opinions on how Bella and Edward should act.

“The sex scenes were difficult. The set was crazy and you have about 20 people in the room and someone saying things like: 'No, Bella would not have made that noise. Can we do it again?'” he said.
"It was very charged, but a very tender and sentimental scene. It's not a scene from the book, so everyone was nervous about doing it right," Pattinson said. "A ton of other people were nervous. And, Kristen and I were both worried about the shape of our bodies would look on camera. We felt vulnerable."
“It's funny that all three movies portray sex as something scary and then, when they have sex in the fourth movie, they have a child with really rather devastating consequences," he added.
Breaking Dawn Part 1 opens in theaters November 18.

Osmond was diagnosed with bronchitis and released from the hospital later Wednesday night. "So the allergies went into a bronchitis. Didn't realize it until I went to hit the high notes last night on stage. Pie Jesu was kinda P-U,” the former Dancing with the Stars contestant tweeted Thursday.
The illness won’t keep Osmond from continuing with performances. She is set to return to the stage Thursday night. No dates have been canceled.

Beavis and Butthead Do Twilght! Return to MTV a Huge Success

It's official Beavis and Butthead are back! They returned to MTV this week (Oct 27) after a 13 year absence. The animated series Beavis and Butthead proved to be a huge success as 3.3 million people tuned in for the revival of the animated series.

According to Zaptoit, the series performed well with males, who comprised over two-thirds of the audience. The episode saw the duo tackle pop culture references such as Jersey Shore and The Bachelor. However reviews for the episode were mixed. According to The Hollywood Reporter, one critic praised, "it turns out that their brand of blunt but unexpectedly wise snark translates just as well to trashy reality shows as it did to trashy hair metal videos back in the day", whilst another stated, "by the old measurements, the premiere episode is tepid and distant." Many fans were more optimistic. Alan Moyer, talking on twitter said, 'Beavis and Butthead haven't lost a step' whilst Stephen Hopkins declared, 'I think Beavis and Butthead actually got funnier than it was before'. However it wasn't enough to please everyone: 'I hate that Beavis and Butthead is back on TV'tweeted another.

The comedy, initially launched in 1993 but ended in November 1997. The teenagers still now appear as the same age, having failed to grow or mature in the past decade. Mtv President Can Toffler previously told Rolling Stone magazine, "They're the same boneheads sitting on the same couch, commenting on things through a really simple prism".

Matt Damon Launches Water.org Bottle Project

Matt Damon may look like a bad guy with the prison jumpsuit and fake neck tattoos while on set in Vancouver filming Elysium. But don’t be fooled.

This week, Matt Damon and Water.org, the charity he co-founded, are launching a water bottle campaign to help some of the 884 million people who lack access to clean, safe water.

"I think what resonates with me most is when you see people living without clean water and they're forced to scavenge for water and basically use up all of their time just doing that,” Damon said. “You realize that they're in such a crippling cycle of poverty; it's just a death spin that they can't possibly get out of."

With the purchase of each limited-edition CamelBak Groove reusable water bottle, $10 will go directly to Water.org.

The bottles are available at water.org/gift,

Doctor Who Star to Have Memoir Published Posthumously

The autobiography of Doctor Who actress Elisabeth Sladen is to be published posthumously next month, six months after her death from cancer, aged 63.
The memoir, described as "a warm and witty celebration", covers her years on the BBC sci-fi show as well as other aspects of her distinguished career.
Former Doctor Who David Tennant has written a foreword for the book, published by Aurum Press on 7 November.
Sladen first appeared as Doctor Who's companion Sarah Jane Smith in 1973.
Having acted alongside two Doctors - Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker - she left the series in 1976 but continued to play Sarah Jane in anniversary specials and radio plays.
The Liverpool-born actress reprised her role in the revived Doctor Who in 2006, going on to star in its CBBC spin-off The Sarah Jane Adventures.
Aurum Press said her autobiography - originally slated for an April release - was being published now "with the support and participation of Elisabeth's family".

Dancing With The Stars Elimination Recap: Chaz Bono and Hope Solo Land In Bottom 2

The two lowest scorers this week on Dancing with the Stars found themselves facing elimination on Tuesday night’s results show. Chaz Bono and Hope Solo scored 19 and 20 points respectively on Monday and both faced harsh criticism from judges. Bono felt disrespected when Bruno Tonioli compared him to a “cute little penguin” while Solo’s partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy took offense to Len Goodmen declaring their performance the “worst dance of the season.”
Bono and partner Lacey Schwimmer held their peace until they were away from the judge’s table.  "It's a bit insulting. One judge in particular week after week paints me as this... I don't know... chubby, cuddly little Ewok, little penguin. That's not about my dancing," Bono said of the name calling. "If you want to talk to me about my dancing and how I can improve, I have no problem with that. That would be fine!"
Chmerkovskiy did not hold his peace. When Goodman slammed Solo’s dance and pointed out that he had 50 years of experience in dancing, Chmerkovskiy snapped, “Maybe it’s time to get out.”
In the end, Chmerkovskiy’s outburst did not have a negative effect on Solo's time on the show. He and Solo were declared safe and Bono was sent packing.
"I took so much away from this. This was an amazing journey that really pushed me and showed me I could do so much more than I thought I could," Bono said after his elimination. "I came on this show because I wanted to show America a different kind of man, and I know that if there was someone like me on TV when I was growing up, my whole life would have been different. I dedicate everything I did to all the people out there like me -- especially the kids and teens who are struggling. You can have a wonderful, great life and be successful and happy.”

Backstage at DWTS: Chaz Bono "Upset" With Judges' Comments While Mom Cher "Could Cut a Bitch!"

Looks like Maksim Chmerkovskiy isn't the only dancer on Dancing With the Stars to feel frustration with the judges this season.

Chaz Bono and Lacey Schwimmer still had a few choice words of their own to share with us after the show, and you won't believe what message Chaz's mom, Cher, had for the judges...

"We were upset, not with the scores but with the comments toward me personally," Chaz told us after he got eliminated tonight, referring to Bruno Tonioli's likening Chaz to a cute, fluffy penguin. "We thought we did a good job [last night]."

"The judges always have a favorite or two," Lacey lamented. "We are just not that couple this season."

So what went wrong? Why did the judges feel compelled to get personal? Chaz said only that he knows that their commentary certainly can affect the voting, and Lacey agreed.

"For Middle America who knows nothing about ballroom dancing," she explained, "they look at these three judges and think they know everything there is to know about ballroom dancing. And when they make comments like that, it does influence how people will vote or support or view the show."

Cher Blasts "DWTS" After Chaz Is Bounced

Chaz Bono admitted he chafed a bit when "Dancing with the Stars" judge Bruno Tonioli compared him to "an Ewok" and "a penguin," but that's nothing compared to how his mom felt.
After Bono was eliminated in last night's competition, Cher took to her Twitter page to vent on the Tonioli and the judges (with one notable exception) for their treatment of her son.
Going Home is Fine but why insult him b4 he Goes!" wrote Cher. "Maybe Rudeness & Flapping Arms take the place of TALENT."
Cher then took aim at Len Goodman, who famously clashed with dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy the previous night, saying, “As for the Older Gentleman ….every Show Needs A Grumpy Old Man!"
However, Cher did express her thanks to judge Carrie Ann Inaba, whom she felt was fair and kind towards Bono. 
“Thank u Carrie Ann 4 your Gentility u r beautiful inside & out,” wrote Cher, before adding: “The Chick is beautiful & Polite ! The Men suck"

Steven Tyler Injured in Shower Mishap

Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler  has been hospitalised in Paraguay after suffering a nasty fall in his hotel bathroom.
The rocker was taken to the emergency room in Asuncion on Tuesday (Oct 25) after slipping in the shower and cutting his face. He also received dental implants for two teeth lost in the accident.
Tyler spent three hours under the care of doctors before returning to his hotel to recover, according to an ABC report.
An Aerosmith concert planned for Tuesday was postponed by one day.
The news has left fans more than a little concerned because Tyler underwent a rehab stint in late 2009 for pain management.
The last time he took a tumble - from a stage in South Dakota - the band was forced to scrap a 2009 summer tour. He later quit the band to pursue a solo career.

Cher Not Happy With Dancing With The Stars Judge Bruno Tonioli

Cher went on her Twitter to rant about Dancing with the Stars judge Bruno Tonioli after he referred to Chaz Bono as a "little penguin", after a tango inspired byPhantom of the Opera.

She wrote: "That guy has no room 2 (to) talk "Little penguins"… I find it disrespectful that Bruno refers to Chaz as a "little penguin"…Is it Dwts or Looking Perfect Wts (what the s**t)?

Michael Lohan Arrested For Domestic Violence

Michael Lohan, the father of troubled actress Lindsay Lohan, was arrested Tuesday morning on domestic violence charges. A police report from Tampa, Florida shows the 51-year-old was arrested at 1:10 a.m. when officers responded to a call at the home of his girlfriend, Kate Major. He was booked at the Hillsborough County Orient Road Jail where he is currently being held without bail.
Lohan is accused of hitting Major, destroying her cell phone and threatening to throw her off the balcony during an hours-long argument over multiple things, including a restraining order that Major obtained after a previous incident of domestic violence. Lohan was also angry that Major refused to perform oral sex. He allegedly banged his head against the bathroom door until it bled and told Major that he planned to tell police she attacked him.
The police report says as soon as officers arrived Lohan “got defensive saying 'everything is OK and nothing happened here.” "The victim started yelling in the background for us to help her because he was lying. We separated the two at this time,” the report states.
After he was taken into custody, Lohan complained of chest pains and was taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital. He allegedly hoped his time at the hospital would “prevent him from going to jail, and in fact, signed himself out of the hospital soon after he thought the police left,” according to the police report. He was then taken back into custody and transported to jail.
Lohan has not commented. He has been arrested multiple times in the past for domestic violence.

U2 Unsure What Their Future Holds

After recently wrapping up their highest grossing tour of all time, it seems as if U2 are not sure what lies ahead for them as a band. "I'm not so sure the future hasn't dried up," Bono told Rolling Stone. The singer admitted he's been taking heat from his bandmates for such talk. "The band are like, 'Will you shut up about being irrelevant?' Ironically, being forced to look back at this period reminds me of how we might re-emerge for the next phase." 

Ozzy Osbourne Trying Out Vegan Diet

Rock veteran Ozzy Osbourne has adopted a new vegan diet in a bid to get healthy.
The 62-year-old star was inspired to change his lifestyle last week (ends Oct. 21) after watching the documentary Forks Over Knives, which publicises the benefits of veganism.

In an interview on his wife Sharon's U.S. daytime show The Talk on Tuesday (Oct 25), he said, "My assistant showed me a video called Forks and Knives (sic) or something, about (cutting out) meat and dairy products, so I thought, 'I'll give this a shot!'"

Osbourne is convinced turning his back on animal products is already giving him a new lease of life and will help him make better food choices when he's on tour.

He added, "I feel OK actually, I feel better about myself, you know? I go on binges... That's the reason why I decided to cut out meat out and dairy because I've limited what I can have because when you're on the road and you're travelling, you grab buns and... burgers are everywhere... so now I've just narrowed the margin.

"I'm not saying I'm gonna do it forever; I might go back - when my wife learns to cook, so that'll be never!"

Mulligan landed the Hollywood Supporting Actress Award for her role in Shame, and Williams was honored with the Hollywood Actress Award for “My Week with Marilyn,” in which she plays Marilyn Monroe.
The actress used her acceptance speech to reflect on her role as the late screen icon, telling the crowd, “It seems to me that all that Marilyn ever wanted was to be taken seriously as an actress. She studied, she trained harder than me, and she never got the recognition that she deserved and craved. I feel very lucky tonight to experience some of that.”
The stars of new movie “The Help” were handed the Hollywood Ensemble Cast Award, while Glenn Close was chosen as the 2011 Career Achievement Award honoree.

LA Morgue Turns Away Lohan’s Cupcakes

Lindsay Lohan’s apology gift of cupcakes was turned away from the Los Angeles County Morgue on Friday, because the actress' community service bosses felt it was "unacceptable" for staff to munch delicious treats inches from dead bodies.

The Mean Girls star began her court-ordered service at the morgue a day late on Friday morning, after she was turned away on Thursday for arriving at the wrong entrance, and thought it would be a nice gesture to say hello with cupcakes.
Unfortunately, Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter didn't agree - and he insisted the delivery guy was turned away.
Winter tells TMZ.com, "It's unacceptable. We're not here to accept food."
Lohan's representative says, "Lindsay asked her assistant to pick up lunches from the In-And-Out (fast food chain) in Huntington Park around 10:30 a.m. Around 11:00 a.m., her assistant returned with the lunches and brought them into the administrative trailer and set the food on a table for the volunteers to eat on their break.
"Additionally, Lindsay ordered cupcakes for the staff and volunteers. When they were delivered, morgue supervisors would not let them into the building.
"It is unfortunate that Lindsay's well-intentioned actions were not taken in the spirit in which she intended; to say she was sorry for yesterday's misunderstanding."

Lindsay Lohan Shows Up Early To Morgue

Actress Lindsay Lohan arrived on time to her court-ordered community service at a morgue Friday, after nearly jeopardizing her probation one day earlier by turning up late and being refused entry.
The troubled star dressed somberly in black and arrived prior to her 7 a.m. start at the Los Angeles County Morgue to begin court-ordered community service, performing tasks such as cleaning toilets, mopping floors and emptying trash bins.
The “Mean Girls” actress, 25, had been on probation as part of her sentence for stealing a gold necklace from a jewelry store earlier this year, but Wednesday, a judge revoked probation after she failed to adequately serve her community service punishment at a women’s center in Los Angeles.
The judge sent Lohan, instead, to the morgue and set a new hearing for November 2, to decide if Lohan in fact violated probation and, as a result, could go to jail.
Lohan had been scheduled to begin work at the morgue Thursday, but was late. Her spokesman blamed the tardiness on confusion over the morgue’s entrance location and the media gathered outside.
