UPDATE: As of 8:15 pm CT, Bernie’s condition is unchanged from “very, very critical”. Comedian Bernie Mac was rushed to the hospital Friday suffering from complications due to pneumonia. At the time, reports were just that he was in the hospital. Now, it seems Bernie is a in much more dire situation.
The Chicago Sun-Times is reporting that as of a few hours ago, Bernie Mac was still alive. According to the latest news report. Bernie Mac is in a hospital, in Chicago with pneumonia. The Sun-Times reports that Bernie was in “very, very critical” condition late Saturday at a Chicago hospital, according to a source who knows the comedian’s family. Prank calls to radio stations had news spreading around the net that Bernie had died.
His publicist, Danica Smith, said in a statement that the 50-year-old comedian is responding well to treatment. Smith said the pneumonia isn’t related to an inflammatory lung disease, sarcoidosis, that Mac also has. That condition, according to the AP, has been in remission since 2005. Bernie’s most recent gig was a big fundraiser dinner in Chicago for Barack Obama. Snarkista sends her prayers out for Bernie and his family. Get well, Bernie!
UPDATE: 8/31/08…Miley’s hacker says he’s too scared to release more pix because Miley was 15! Okay, so pretty much everyone knows that Miley Cyrus got hacked, and the racy pics have been dribbling out over the past few weeks. Snarkista heard that Trainreq, the hacker, lives in Murfreesboro, TN. about 30 miles from Nashville. He’s the real deal. Miley’s PHONE didn’t get hacked, like the press has been saying. Dude hacked her email. He’s got more Miley, and is gonna keep leaking the pics like the bikini and underwear pics here, (and possibly emails) out. Here’s a breaking story, the video interview with the hacker who HOPEFULLY has taught Miley a lesson. But probably didn’t.
MAJOR PROPS to Rickey for his FAB “Mavid” collection from the American Idol Tour! If you love David Cook and Michael Johns, you MUST check out the Bro-Dance video. Snarkista busted a gut, and it made her day!
The National Enquirer isn’t letting up on Senator John Edwards, and now it’s reporting his mistress, Rielle Hunter, mother of his â€œlove childâ€ â€“ has been secretly receivÂing $15,000 a month as part of an elaborate cover-up orchestrated by the former presidential candidate. And STILL the mainstream media ignores the story. Except for Fox News. Edwards must REALLY have some friends in high places!
The money is reportedly being funneled to Rielle by a wealthy colleague closely tied to Edwardsâ€™ failed presidential campaign. This same man is said to be throwing cash at Edwardsâ€™ pal and former aide Andrew Young…who tried to take the heat off the ex-Senator by claiming HE’S the father of Rielleâ€™s baby. According to the mag, Rielleâ€™s baby is a girl named Frances Quinn Hunter and was born at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital. They report a source very close to the situation says:
A super-rich pal â€“ who was closely involved with the campaign finances â€“ is helping John. Itâ€™s likely this man doesnâ€™t know all the dirty details of Johnâ€™s extramarital affair, but is acting out of loyalty and is not asking a lot of questions â€“ only writing the checks
The year-long investigation by the magazine blew wide open the night of July 21 when its reporters caught Edwards making a secret late-night visit to Rielle and their infant child at L.A.’s Beverly Hilton hotel. Senator Edwards was confronted by reporters, but refused to answer questions and hid out in a public menâ€™s restroom until security escorted him off hotel grounds!
Rich-boy Edward’s behavior is unconscionable. His wife Elizabeth is dying of cancer, and he can’t keep his pants zipped. Snarkista’s WAITING for the mainstream media to break their curious, complete silence on the story. Who else is getting paid hush money??!
Weâ€™re developing that right now and just going over scripts and drawing my character. I fight crime. Itâ€™s not like your typical superhero, Itâ€™s me basically as a superhero, so kind of using makeup and compacts as weapons. Itâ€™s kind of like a spoof on a superhero.
Stan! You’re a LEGEND! You created Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, Iron Man, the Hulk, Thor, Daredevil, Dr. Strange, and many other awesome characters. Snarkista knows you’re getting on up there age-wise, so maybe Paris is trying to pull an Anna Nicole Smith on you. Hide the checkbook! And if you DO make Paris a spooferhero, name her Supervain or Stuporgirl or The Wonky. Benji Madden could be The Pudge. Pretty please?
You just can’t make this shizz up! Both ‘Hairspray’ star Nikki Blonsky and former “America’s Next Top Model” contestant Bianca Golden were arrested in the Turks and Caicos Islands Wednesday after allegedly getting into a physical fight with each other at the airport! Damn. If I’m a model who weighs 80 pounds, you can bet the last person I’m gonna pick a fight with is a 300 pound actress!
They were both charged with assault. Nikki was released on $6,000 cash bail — she’ll return to court on December 1. Bianca is due to appear in court on September 17. She was also released on $6,000 bail. Nikki appeared in court Friday morning sporting a neck brace, believed to be worn as a result of an injury suffered in the fight. Bianca must have put her in a headlock with her mile-long legs!
Nikki’s DAD, Carl Blonsky, allegedly involved in the altercation as well, was arrested and charged with inflicting grievous bodily harm. He’ll remain in custody and will be back in court on August 8. Bianca’s MOM, Eleine Golden was airlifted to a hospital in Florida after allegedly suffering a head injury in the fight. Miami CBS affilliate WFOR is reporting that she is currently being cared for in the ICU of a Florida hospital. Holy effin’ crap. Snarkista cannot WAIT to hear what the hell caused THIS family feud. Get Jerry Springer on the line, intern Seacrest. Must. Have. Video.
Okay, Snarkista’s throwing a flag. This is just too much for her to take. Tommy-Girl Cruise has taken his evil abduction of Katie Holmes TOO FAR! Not that it wasn’t already too far, but this is all kinds of crazy. He took over her haircut, and now he’s making her wear his jeans. From 1987. WTF? Somebody help Katie. Even if it’s you, evil stylist Rachel Zoe. Chupacabra-style is better than this. Snarkista needs to lie down for a bit ‘cuz she has the vapors.
