It seems that the news crews can always find a celebrity somewhere that is in trouble , sick, or actually making a good impression. It seems that this week is no different and I assume that most of us are interested in the celebrities to want to know a little more. Here are some tidbits of information on some celebrities that I have heard of in the news this week.
Paris Hilton- The American heiress and socialite that is known for her partying and reality television shows was arrested this week for possession of cocaine. This is not her first arrest or run in with the law. She has been arrested for a DUI and has served time in jail for violating her probation by being charged with speeding and driving while suspended and not enrolling in a alcohol education program. It seems that this rich kid can not follow rules as she had to get a GED due to being kicked out of school due to violating rules. My opinion is she needs to grow up and realize that even spoiled rich kids have to follow the laws like everyone else.
Michael Douglas- Michael is a well-known actor and producer from a well-known family in the entertainment business. He announced this week that he is going to undergo aggressive chemotherapy and radiation to fight a case of throat cancer. He recently was diagnosed with stage 4 throat cancer that he says he brought on to himself by smoking and drinking. He says he has an 80/20 percent chance of beating this cancer. Michael is married to actress Catherine Zeta-Jones. I wish both Michael and his wife a lot of strength in this battle and I pray that he will beat the cancer and live to a ripe old age.
Jon Gosselin – Rumors are flying that Jon’s former gal pal has made claims that he did harass Kate after their separation and threatened her with blackmail tactics to get the money that he wanted. She claims to have proof of him attempting to blackmail Kate by threatening to call CPS on her if she did not give him the money that he wanted. Whether this is true or not, we may never know. However, it does go along with claims that Kate has made and with things that we know Jon has done since the separation and divorce. My opinion is that Jon needs to grow up and realize that he may not have liked the publicity that the show brought, but the money surely must have been a huge plus for him.
RAPPER TI – The Grammy award winning rapper/musician TI and his wife were arrested this week in West Hollywood, California for drug possession. The couple were arrested after a traffic stop and a policeman noticed a strong odor of marijuana coming from the car. The 29-year-old rapper, whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr., and his wife, Tameka Cottle, 36, were booked for investigation of possessing a controlled substance.
I feel that he will serve some time out of this due to the fact that he is still on probation for an unrelated handgun charge.
Miranda Lambert- Country musician and one of country’s most popular stars at this time has been nominated for 9 CMA awards. This tops all other musicians for the year and surely will help her to win more than one award this year. Melinda is well known and loved by country music fans and her popularity shows with these nominations. I do like Miranda, but I am not sure that I would have nominated her for that many CMA awards this year.
Well, that is all of the tidbits that I have for this week. I am thankful that these entertainers keep doing their job and their partying and bad habit as it makes our jobs as writers seem exciting and challenging as we wonder how we can possibly keep up with the constant changes in their lives.
