The freak skiing accident that actress Natasha Richardson suffered resulting in a very bleak outlook. Richardson, 45, the daughter of actress Vanessa Redgrave, suffered a devastating head injury Monday while skiing on a beginner’s slope outside Montreal during a trip with at least one of her two sons.
Vanessa was reportedly lucid and talking for several hours after her accident, then fell unconscious. Her husband, Liam Neeson, 56, raced from a Toronto movie set to be with her as she was hospitalized.
She remains in a New York hospital, and her family and friends have all but given up hope that she’ll recover from her head injury. A family friend told People that:
“There is no chance. “It is a fact that her heart is beating but she is brain dead.”
Her fragile condition, described as “leakage of blood between the brain and skull has the actress’s family coming to grips with potentially having to make an unthinkably difficult decision. “It’s not official yet,” says the friend, “but they basically will detach her.”
Family and friends gathered for a vigil yesterday. We’re sending up prayers.
Big Brooke Hogan performed at the Calle Ocho carnival in South Miami, Florida yesterday, looking exactly like her mom Linda. Except we haven’t been subjected to pics of Linda pole-dancing. Yet. Brooke thought it might be sexy if she tried an impromptu pole dance for the crowd, which included her cheering DAD, Hulk Hogan. Gross.
Brooke, as you can clearly see, is not aerodynamically correct for stripper-pole dancing. She clearly IS making an ass of herself. It’s gonna take awhile for those carnival attendees to get THESE images out of their heads!
Pandemonium erupted outside of an “America’s Next Top Model” casting call in midtown Manhattan Saturday, when an overheating car triggered a stampede of catwalk-wannabees. Screaming as they ran for their lives, hundreds of hotties in heels toppled over barricades along W. 55th St. after several people in the crowd started yelling, “There’s a bomb!” OR, was it “There’s a blonde?!” Deep thoughts.
As the girls stumbled over police barricades, witnesses told a local radio station that the chaos was compounded after a man jumped out of a car and started grabbing purses. In the end, 6 people were injured, 3 were arrested, and stilettos and clothing littered the street. It’s the recession, yo.
The papz everywhere are thanking heaven that Lindsay Lohan is in trouble with the law, TOPPED with a big old catfight between Li-Lo and SamRo. Ay, Dios. This is the good stuff. With the real possibility of jail! Roll ‘em!
The cops were called to Lindsay and SamRo’s house, (which is actually SamRo’s house.) Sam and Lindsay had a nuclear fight, and some priceless piece of swag got thrown out the window.
At the same time, the police were trying to serve Lindsay her $50,000 arrest warrant- for screwing up her probation! They went to the front door to talk to Lindsay and Sam but they wouldn’t open the door. TMZ has the video.
The po-po may arrest Lindsay. The papz are praying. It just might be an awesome night for those boys!
UPDATE 4:26 pm CT: Police are reportedly at Lindsay’s house RIGHT NOW!!
Ruh Roh, Li-Lo is in BIG trouble again, and the po-po are looking for her! Beverly Hills police said an arrest warrant has been issued for Lindsay Lohan stemming from her 2007 conviction for drunk-driving.
The $50,000 warrant was issued by the Beverly Hills Superior Court, the police said in a statement issued on Friday. They declined to state the reason for the issuance of the warrant.
“It is our hope that Ms. Lohan will surrender herself so that this matter can be resolved in a timely manner,” Beverly Hills police Lieutenant Mark Rosen said in a statement.
In November 2007, Lindsay spent 84 whole minutes behind bars for a drunk-driving and coke possession conviction. She had been arrested the previous May after she wrecked her car in Beverly Hills and again in July following a car chase in the Los Angeles beach community of Santa Monica.
Did the leggings-queen violate probation? Was she driving on a suspended license? Did she miss a court date? Did she run over SamRo? Answers will come soon, my children. Snarkista is on it.
Howard K. Stern, the (ahem) ex-lover of Anna Nicole Smith was arrested yesterday and charged in regards to her death. More than two years after Anna Nicole Smith died from a lethal cocktail of prescription drugs, authorities have filed the first criminal charges, targeting her former attorney and boyfriend.
Stern once claimed to be the father of her daughter Dannielynn, until DNA tests proved that photographer Larry Birkhead was the baby’s daddy. Stern has been formally charged with conspiring to furnish drugs to Smith prior to her death, prosecutors said Thursday.
He was arrested on 6 felony counts, and booked by police in Whittier, Calif., with bail set for $20,000. Also charged with 7 felonies each were two doctors, Sandeep Kapoor, 40, and Anna Nicole’s “psychiatrist”, Khristine Eroshevich, 61, who allegedly prescribed medication unlawfully to Anna Nicole, according to the L.A. County D.A.’s Office. Kapoor was arrested and booked. A warrant was issued for Eroshevich’s arrest.
In March of 2007, Eroshevich sent a fax from the Bahamas to Los Angeles before Anna Nicole Smith died, asking for a menu of potent drugs that could kill her patient. This was the same doctor whom “Entertainment Tonight” paid as a consultant and was constantly referred to on their program as the dead modelâ€™s “best friend.”
In the fax, Eroshevich requested a laundry list of drugs to be sent to the Bahamas by courier for “M. Chase,” the pseudonym Smith used to obtain drugs. The list was unreal. It included: four bottles of 2 mg Dilaudid; 2 milliliter bottles of Lorazepam (Ativan); two bottles of 350 mg Soma, a total of 180 tablets; one bottle each of 30 mg Dalmane and 400 mg Prexige, the latter a British drug; and one bottle of methadone, 300 5mg tablets. All of them are classified as different types of painkillers.
The conspiracy counts claim the three defendants conspired to provide controlled substances to Smith from between June 2004 and January 2007. They also were charged with “prescribing, administering or dispensing a controlled substance to an addict,” among other charges.
Anyone with half a brain knows that these three made it easy for Anna Nicole to get her crazed hands on enough drugs to kill even Amy Winehouse. We can only HOPE these trials are televised, as the soap opera around Anna Nicole Smith is always crazier than fiction. More to come on this developing story.
Fresh on the heels of reports that Kevin Federline was getting close to his ex-wife Britney Spears again, come OTHER reports that Brit’s gnat-sized attention span is still gnat-sized. In other words: K-Fed, you’re still in the Circus, you’re just not in the main ring.
Brit-Brit has reportedly embarked on a secret love relationship with her longtime talent agent, Jason Trawick. E! News says 37-year-old Jason recently joined Our Lady Of The Cheetos for the first four shows of her “Circus” tour. The two have now become “much closer.”
E! claims to have been informed by a well-placed source that Jason’s bosses at the William Morris Agency have no problem with his close bond with Spears. “They joke about it,” the source claims. Hell yeah, they joke about it! There’s just TOO much material to resist! Like the material that outfit in the pic is made of… for starters.
This doesn’t bode well for any extra “Mommy Time” for SJP and JJ, who are forced to watch mama strumpet around in heinouswear EVERY SINGLE NIGHT. Wait a minute…there’s hope for those boys after all! Thanks, Jason!
