Douglas is being sued by his ex-wife, Diandra Douglas, who is claiming that she is entitled to 50% of his earnings from the upcoming 'Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps' as part of her divorce settlement from the actor in 2000, and he's currently married to actress Catherine Zeta-Jones, with whom he has two children.
It seems strange that Diandra would be seeking her share of her ex-husband's salary for a movie he made a decade after their divorce was finalized...well it is. The suit appears to hinge on a clause in Michael and Diandra's divorce settlement that entities her to 50% of any earning Michael receives from any movies he did - including residuals, merchandising and ancillary rights - during their 23-year marriage. According to Diandra's lawyers, that includes any "spinoffs" of Douglas movies.
Marilyn Chinitz, Michael's lawyer, however, simply thinks this is a case of life imitating art, with Diandra taking the famed Gordon Gekko line "greed is good" to heart. Michael doesn't want Diandra to be an albatross around his neck forever," Chinitz said.
Michael and Diandra's divorce remains one of the costliest in Hollywood history. The pair's split was bitter, to say the least, with Diandra accusing Michael of sex and alcohol addiction and multiple infidelities. In 2007, Forbes magazine compiled a list of the 10 most expensive celebrity divorces and listed the Douglases' at number eight. Diandra walked away with an estimated $45 million and the couple's homes in Beverly Hills and Majorca.
Justice Cooper has delayed ruling while he considers whether he should keep the case or send it back to a California court; however, he revealed that he believes there is indeed a difference between a spinoff and a sequel.
Michael and Diandra recently came together to support their son, Cameron, who was sentenced to five years in prison for his role in dealing methamphetamine and cocaine in New York City. During Cameron's April hearing , Michael, who along with Zeta-Jones and Kirk Douglas asked the judge for leniency, took a swipe at his ex-wife in a letter to the judge, describing Diandra as "a young mother without any parenting skills handed down from her own parents.
My spin : No,no,no Michael...it's not nice to say bad things about your children's mother, you knew Diandra was half your age and wasn't wise to the world, but she was smarter than a lot of the women you f**ked, she made you marry her, now you have to pay the piper...so just grin and bear it...it other words just pay up and keep your woo-woo in your pants.

Emergency medical workers were called to Shawn King's home in Provo on May 28. Her father dialed 911 after finding the 50-year-old woman in her bed, breathing but not responding when he tried to wake her, according to a transcript of the emergency call, which was released through an open-records request Wednesday.
Karl Engemann told the dispatcher that he thought she may have taken too much medication for anxiety or depression. Officers who responded to the call found several prescription bottles, including Ambien and anti-anxiety medication, that had been filled within 10 days but were empty, according to a police report. It also said there was a handwritten note that indicated she had taken the pills intentionally. Another note expressed Shawn King's desire to be buried in Utah, police said.
The report did not include any mention of why Shawn King may have wanted to harm herself. Engemann had told the dispatcher that he did not suspect it was a suicide attempt.The Kings filed for divorce in April, but Larry King released a statement through his spokesman, Howard Rubenstein, saying "reports that we have fought are absolutely false."
Shawn King is Larry King's seventh wife. The couple has been married since 1997 and has two sons.
"Our marriage is still together, and I am staying very close to our children, who we love immensely," Larry King said. "We shall go through this difficult time intact as a family."
While I agree that being married to Larry might drive anyone to the brink ( especially if those stories of chronic flatulence are true) Shawn, honey, you are a beautiful, vibrant woman. You are intelligent, wealthy and have two wonderful sons. You are only fifty, in your prime, and the world is your oyster. SMARTEN UP! Whatever it is, it's not worth dying over.

To all you Potter fans, this is the next to last movie and it's bound to be a good one. Enjoy.
The couple's divorce was finalized in Travis County,Texas, TMZ reports. Sandra filed papers on April 23, describing the marriage as "insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities."
Just days after taking home her first Academy Award , Bullock learned her husband had been having several affairs, when the first of the women -- Michelle 'Bombshell' McGee -- came forward with her story.
Jesse was then implicated in seven (7) extramarital affairs.
Although James and Bullock worked to together to adopt Louis Bardot back in January, custody was never an issure in the split, as James dropped his name from the adoption papers. James has three children from previous relationships.
The 'Monster Garage' host and Sandra wed in 2005.
My spin : Sandra ...good for you , so now girl get on with your life with your beautiful baby....there's a good man for you out there, he may just be around the corner or down the block, so keep your head up and your eyes open...never settle for less.

The whole thing is double unfortunate since it takes the attention away from what I think is a very interesting sounding film. "The Beaver," directed by his( Gibson's) longtime friend "Jodie Foster," is about a man who for some reason can only communicate through an animal in the form of the tibilar rodent.
The film is set for release in October, at which point there will undoubtedly be loads of Media stories asking whether fans will want to support Gibson despite all his personal issues.
My spin : So lets get a jump-start on it now . Are any of you less likely to want to see Gibson's film given his off-screen troubles? Or does the whole damn drama not matter to you at all....drop us a comment about what you think.
Kicking back having fun and keeping it real...see you at the movies.
It would be normal to assume that Madonna was raising a little Material Girl, but (despite a wardrobe that makes Kate Moss look like a Gap commercial), little Lourdes and the rest of Her Madgesty’s brood have grown up with all kinds of rules and restrictions.
For starters, there is no TV-watching allowed. Madge says they have a set, but only for movies (presumably documentaries about impoverished nations), because everything on TV is crap. Hmmmm. Does that mean the kids are banned from watching Mommy’s movies as well? The former Mrs. Ritchie, who maintains primary custody of all four of her kids, is also uber-strict when it comes to keeping the home tidy. And unlike with many of Tinseltown’s other famous families, there are no maids paid to pick up after her children.
Apparently when a toy or an item of clothing is left on the floor, it is put into a trash bag and the kiddies must complete chores to earn the item back. Sounds like a pretty good system if you ask me, and a sure fire way to cut down on house keeping costs.
And speaking of cutting down, a few years back, Guy Ritchie told the press that his Mrs. had officially entered into Grinch territory by cancelling Christmas, or at least all the presents that go with it. At the time (2007), Guy was all for it, saying: “Once we stopped all the presents, we started enjoying ourselves more.”
wonder if Madge’s new man (err boy), who may or may not still believe in Santa Claus, feels the same way.
2. Reese Witherspoon
Reese may not be one of Hollywood’s good time gals, but what the Southern lovely lacks in the letting-loose department, she more than makes up for in good old fashioned common sense and values.
She’s probably not the girl you’d want to party with, but if you ever need a billionaire babysitter, look no further than mama Witherspoon.
The mother of two (mini-me Ava is almost a teenager, and Deacon is 6), has made her children top priority, and not in that fake way where everyone says their kids are first on the list, but then shows up at Bungalow 8 every weekend. But while she’s happy to spoil them with her time, Reese is less keen on providing her wee ones with material comforts. (Let’s just say little Ava won’t be swapping tiaras with Suri Cruise any time soon).
While promoting her movie Four Christmases in 2008, Reese explained her own holiday season is a lot less gluttonous than you might think, given that she probably could afford to buy her kids a new planet if she wanted.
“I think kids do best when they only have a couple of things that they really enjoy,” the actress said of her sparse gift giving practices.
3. Gwyneth Paltrow
So yes, Gwynie is the queen of all things extravagant and superior, but when it comes to her kids, she may as well be your average soccer mom (minus the soccer mom haircut, of course).
Just like her own children (daddy is Coldplay frontman Chris Martin), Princess P grew up in a celebrity family, and certainly didn’t want much as a young one. But when it came time for Gwyneth to grow up, she did just that, and apparently she wants her kids to experience the same school of hard knocks.
“My father made it very clear that the day I left university I was on my own," Gwyneth has said, explaining that she feels like letting kids know that they have a trust fund is like setting them up for failure.
“My dad didn't give me any money and I really struggled and I waitressed and bought cigarettes out of tips and tried to get to auditions with no gas.”
Naturally we take all of this “I didn’t get a free ride” rhetoric with a grain of salt. (Gwynie fails to mention that her first audition ever was for Steven Spielberg…not exactly starting in the mailroom, to put it mildly). But I guess it’s all relative, and personally, I’m just relieved that little Apple and Moses will have a chance to experience the world without their famous parents. Although for the sake of anonymity, a name change may be in order.

As the mostly male audience gave her a standing ovation, Sandra teased, Let's be honest here just a moment..."did I win this for being entertainer of the year, or did I win this because of the spectaclar IED [improvised explosive device] explosion that became my personal life?" After the laughter subsided she got serious , telling the soldiers who voted for her, "I'll do it over again if it was to entertain our troops. "Then it went right back to joking, I would sing , but you're seen enough pain in your lifetime," offered Sandra. "I would dance - I'm a pretty god dancer...but the dress is to tight."
The next night, Sandra,45, showed a lot of leg - in a black sparkly mini with a low-cut back at the MTV Movie Awards, where she was presented with the Generation Award by Bradley cooper, Betty White and Scarlett Johansson " Honey , don't ever wear that dress backwards," the golden Girl deadpanned to her , The Proposal co-star after sharing a hug. The comedy countinued as Sandra joked that the Generation Award sounded like it should be for "old people who has extended their welcome" before insisting to the audience,"I love what I do and I'm not going anywhere." sandra turned to Scarlett and asked what she was doing on stage because her presence was "so weird." After Scarlett explained she was the stand-in for her hubby...Ryan Reynolds--- who was nominated with Sandra for Best Kiss in The Proposal.(they lost to Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart in New Moon)---Sandra joking planted a kiss on Scarlett's lips . Sandra turned to audience and said, "Can we please go back to normal?" Because therapy is really expensive.(In reference to her separation to her separation from Jesse).
Over the past three months following the split, Sandra has been completely focused on raising her 5-month-old son. But Hollywood is still knocking .Sandra's thinking it over at the moment, says an insider. Just because she has her son at home and is busy being a mommy, that doesn't mean she can't make a movie or two a year. Sandra really has the right support system to be able to thrive as a working single mom. And she looked so amazing at both awards shows, every producer in town ants her.
Sandra's biggest reason to smile is her 5-month-old son. "He's just perfect," she says. "There's nothing hard about loving my baby son...I guess you can say I am surprised at how easy it has been for me.
My spin : Looking good Sandra , just keep a level head and a good man will come your way, we are pulling for you because you are "America's sweetheart.
Kickin back keeping it real and like to report on the good things in Hollywood, they are so few and far between.

Janet was shooting the recently released Tyler Perry comedy Why Did I Get Married Too? when her brother died. She made several high-profile TV appearances over the last year, starting with a performance of "Scream" at the MTV Video Awards in September. Later in fall 2009, she opened the American Music Awards, followed by an eight-minute medley on the "American Idol" season finale this spring, which found her praised for her newly slimmed-down form and vigorous dancing, if not her lip-synching. Her struggles with keeping fit will be detailed in a self-help book, True You, scheduled for this fall. Jackson recorded a new ballad for the Married Too soundtrack, "Nothing," but is currently without a recording contract. She also ended her seven-year relationship with producer Jermaine Dupri last year. This month, perhaps signaling sides being taken in family disputes, she tweeted her support for brother Randy's public statements, writing: "It's time the fans know the truth and ur one of the very few I trust n doing so. I got ur back all the way bro."
Jermaine was hailed for his performance of one of Michael's favorite songs, Charlie Chaplin's "Smile," at the Staples Center memorial. Less acclaimed: his role in the reality mini-series "The Jacksons: A Family Dynasty," along with brothers Jackie, Marlon, and Tito. The show ran for six episodes on A&E in December and January and was widely criticized as manipulated and/or exploitive. Though production had originally wrapped before Michael's death, reshoots allowed most of the show to revolve around reaction to the tragedy. (A proposed second season appears to have fizzled out.) Jermaine has been the most interviewed Jackson in the last year, talking with Matt Lauer at Neverland last year and Larry King at the Forest Lawn mausoleum this week.
Randy is the family's most active Twitterer, and he recently used his account to air differences with other members of the clan. On June 15, Randy walked into a hospital in Pasadena complaining of chest pains, but he later tweeted he was fine. On June 23, he took some disputes public, offering a hint at what might have given him agitation. "Let's start with my family," he wrote. "There is a common concern about their lack of support and unity...Right now, my struggle is trying to get my family together on the 5th of June at Forest Lawn...I'm putting myself in the hot seat. I have nothing to lose." He added, I am not in support of the Gary event/trip or whatever it is," referring to Katherine's plan to attend a tribute in the family's Indiana hometown.
Though there was initial speculation that Jackson's second wife might want to take on their children after the death, she never publicly expressed any interest in custody, reaching a settlement with Katherine Jackson in August that allowed only for supervised visitations.
DR. ARNOLD KLEIN
Jackson's dermatologist and "closest friend" has been quite vocal about the star's private life. The admitted former sperm donor played it coy on the issue of whether he was the true biological father of Prince and Paris Jackson--saying only that he was not their dad "to the best of my knowledge." But there was no equivocating this spring when declared that Jackson was gay, backing up the story of a former employee, Jason Pfeiffer, who claimed he and Jackson had a years-long sexual relationship. Among the Jackson loyalists denouncing Klein for this supposed betrayal of trust were Jermaine Jackson (using four-letter words) and Elizabeth Taylor (using Twitter).
"Michael was not ashamed of his sexuality," said Pfeiffer, the former office manager for dermatologist Arnold Klein, alleging in May that he'd had a "passionate and sexual" relationship with Jackson for years. "I believe he was probably my soulmate." Klein affirmed that he'd discovered the two men shirtless and approved of their relationship, saying, "Was he gay? Yes...When you see two people looking at each other, you know what's happening. I was just very happy for both of them."
The golden-age film star and longtime Jackson pal took to her Twitter account to announce after a preview screening of This Is It that the documentary "is the single most brilliant piece of filmmaking I have ever seen." In May, she took to Twitter again, this time to lash out at his chatty dermatologist for alleging that Jackson was gay. "Dr. Arnie Klein declared on May 2 that he did not betray Michael Jackson by saying publicly that he had a homosexual relationship with someone in Arnie's office. It seems he supplies not only women [Debbie Rowe], but men too.....how convenient. Just what we want in our doctors. And then to say he did not betray Michael's confidence. No wonder he has death threats. I thought doctors, like priests, took an oath of confidentiality. May God have mercy on his soul."
"They don't have any friends," their guardian, Katherine Jackson, told the Daily Mirror this month, in a headline-making aside. "They don't go to school, they have private lessons at home--but that will change in September, when they are due to enroll at private college." Friendless or not, Prince, 13, Paris, 12, and Blanket, 8, have come out from under wraps in every way since their father's passing. They made their uncloaked public debut at the tear-jerking conclusion of Michael's Staples Center memorial service, and went on to attend the Grammys this year. In a development that might alarm their protective dad, they've even posted videos of themselves on YouTube--including Blanket's recreation of a scene from Monsters Inc. The kids are even said to have gone out door-to-door to proselytize for the Jehovah's Witness faith that Katherine is raising them in, just as their father did before he left the sect.
The patriarch of the family continues to be one of American pundits' favorite punching bags, which some would find poetic justice. Although Joe wasn't mentioned in his son's will, he seems determined to inherit some of the public attention. His latest shocking statement seemed to lay some of the blame for Michael's death on Katherine: He said he had asked his wife to visit their son "to keep him cheered up," but she declined for fear of violating Michael's privacy. "I said this would have never happened if you had went and been with him," Joe said he told Katherine. But the senior Jackson has been feeling the heat ever since he went on the red carpet at the 2009 BET Awards and talked about a new record label he was starting...three days after Michael's death. In recent legal news, Joe Jackson's lawyer has filed complaints with the California Medical Board against AEG--creating a rare instance where many fans may side with the big corporation against the little guy.
In testimony to Michael's closeness with his mother, she was the only family member other than his children to immediately benefit from his will, and has become the guardian of his kids. But even Michael's beloved mum has been involved in some controversies. Katherine has aligned herself with Howard Mann, a businessman who TMZ says "promotes online nude gambling." Together, Mann has said, they plan to produce a Jackson biopic and sell 273 unreleased tracks that were discovered when Mann bought a storage unit owned by the Jackson family. They've already collaborated on a coffee-table book, Never Can Say Goodbye: The Katherine Jackson Archives, which is being sold online. Child protective services came to the family manse in Encino after it was reported that Jaafar Jackson--one of three children of Jermaine's who also live at the house--had brandished a stun-gun near one or more of Michael's children. In this week's controversy, Katherine is scheduled to travel to hometown Gary, Indiana, for an event commemorating the anniversary of Michael's death, even though Randy Jackson is publicly rallying for the entire family to gather at Michael's tomb in Glendale, California
DR. CONRAD MURRAY
The doctor who injected Jackson with Propofol and performed unsuccessful CPR on the singer has faced legal trouble in three states. In California, he's awaiting trail for involuntary manslaughter. Attempts to take away his license to practice medicine in California in the meantime have been unsuccessful, though Murray has said it's irrelevant because he only practices in Texas now. In Nevada, his license may be in trouble due to unpaid child support; in Texas, he has only lost the power to administer sedatives. On a recent US Airways flight, he administered emergency aid to an unconscious woman. Joe Jackson continues to pursue action against Murray, most recently claiming that the doctor was seen drinking at a strip club before Michael's death, although associates claim the doc is a non-drinker. "I know what trouble is," Murray told his Houston church congregation last fall. "I, with my compassion, was only trying to help my fellow man. But it appears I was at the wrong place at the wrong time." Murray was new enough to Jackson's employ at the time of the death that he never did get paid for any of his services.
I wonder if he will sue the estate for the wages owed to him...
More updates on the Jackson family and their associates in this drama tomorrow.
Keeping you in the loop on theMel/Oksana drama:
Alleging physical violence, Mel Gibon's ex-girlfriend , Oksana Grigorieva, has reportly obtained a restraining order against the actor.
AS RadarOline reported earlier, Gibson has a restraining order against Grigorieva, however, details of the order were unknown. TMZ is now reporting that the Oscar winner's sealed filing was intended to stop Grigorieva, with whom he has a seven-month-old daughter, from speaking publicly.
Grigorieva's lawyers went to Los Angeles family court Monday (June 21) asking for an emergency hearing. Grigorieva's representatives told the judge that Gibson had been "extremely violent" with her earlier this year, and the 'Lethal Weapon' star has been ordered to have no contact with the Russian singer.
The following day, Gibson's lawyer reportedly sought to modify the order so the actor could have contact with his and Grigrieva's daughter.
A gibson source has dismissed Grigorieva's allegations saying the alleged violence occured in January and that she traveled extensively with him afterward. The source said ,"In these cases , when someone cries wolf, the judge is mandated to assume there's a wolf , until a full hearing can be held.
A source close to Grigorieva confirms the reported violent acts happened in January, but quick to add,"there were other acts after January that were not physical but still constituted domestic violence."
Gibson and Grigorieva broke up in April after dating for little over a year. The breakup was said to be amicable. At the time, Grigorieva was quoted as saying ,"We have split up, suddenly and recently...unfortunately, I cannot give you the reason. But soon you will find out everything... quite soon."Stay tuned: the saga continutes, updates as they become available.
My spin: This seems to be turning into a series and we will be here for the long run....Grigorieva was okay with the abuse util she got what she wanted...a baby and a record deal that Gibson financed, now she has thrown the old drunk to the curb. Didn't she know most alcoholics have a change of personality when drunk...we think she knew , but was willing to hang on until she got what she wanted....Tim Dalton wised up to her quite quickley.
Kicking back, keeping it real and having fun.

On Wednesday, a smiling Cyrus was spotted with boyfriend Liam Hemsworth, 20, at LAX, and she told Ryan Seacrest on Tuesday that she's just focusing on "the positive and I hope this record does well."
Meanwhile, it seems blogger Perez Hilton, who came under fire for Tweeting an apparently explicit photo of the 17-year-old star, has a reason to smile as well. Though Hilton (real name: Mario Lavandeira Jr.), 32, faced enormous public outrage for posting a revealing paparazzi shot of the young star ( which exposed her genitalia) climbing out of a car, Beverly Hills criminal defense attorney Howard Price said the blogger will probably not face legal consequences.
"It seems unlikely Perez would be prosecuted for any criminal act in this case," Price says. "For this to constitute as child pornography it has to be a photo of actual sexual conduct or a more blatant exhibition of one's private parts for the purpose of sexually stimulating the viewer."
"Plus," Price adds, "prosecutors aren't going to waste their time trying to go after an isolated event like this. They are more concerned about more serious and widespread cases."
But Hilton isn't off the hook completely: "If Perez doctored the photograph however, that could be grounds for a civil defamation suit," according to Price.
Hilton's lawyer, Todd Rubenstein said that the blogger "did not create, post, Photoshop or alter the photos. From his Twitter account, he merely linked to and commented on someone else's photos, which is his First Amendment right and is lawfully done by thousands of bloggers all day long ... Furthermore, the photos are not pornographic by any legal, factual or common sense definition."
What he can be accused of is lack of scruples ( she is only seventeen) and bad taste.
One repercussion of Hilton's actions: ABC reportedly pulled ads for The View from his Web site. Another possible repercussion is that he will lose a few or more viewers who are a little disappointed in him and have lost some respect for him. We should not exploit our children for any price.
So what happens next? Cyrus and Hilton are headed for a possible run-in on Sunday: The blogger is a presenter at the Toronto-based awards show. Bloggers beware! You have a responsibility to use good judgement. For shame Perez. And, as my partner so aptly put it, "MILEY,DON"T LEAVE HOME WITHOUT YOUR PANTIES AND YOU WON'T HAVE THIS PROBLEM."
The documents list Mel Gibson as the plaintiff and Oskana Grigorieva as the defendent, RadarOline reports the documents were served to Grigorieva at her home last night.
Through the papers are sealed and can't be released to the public, it's reported the complaint is about three (3) main issures and the movie star's access to his young daughter.
Gibson and Grigorieva broke up in April after dating for little over a year. The break up was allegedly amicable, though at the time Grigorieva was quoted as saying, "We have split up, suddenly and recently... unfortunately, we cannot give you a reason. But you will find out everything quite soon.
They made their first appearance as a couple only a few weeks after Gibson's wife of over 30 years filed for divorce. Gibson has seven (7) children from his marriage in addition to Lucia and Grigorieva has a son, Alexander, from a previus relationship with actor Timothy Dalton. Stay tuned, the Gibson saga continues.
My spin on the homewrecking bimbo and old crazy fart-ass Mad Mel: Oksana is good at her game, set her eye on an old alcoholic drunk and caught his eye, she didn't give a shit about who she was hurting or the consequence of her actions, it was just what she wanted and if she could keep him in a drunken stupor to work her magic and boy did she work the old fool. I bet old Mel don't remember what it was like to poke the shank...what else can you call the bimbo, I am being nice, I would call her a whore. Oksana dumped old Mel in a hurry after he got her singing career jump started...smart girl. She really worked that old fool. Oksana had no intention of marrying Mel. Now folks, he's crawling back to Robyn like a whipped dog with his tail between his legs. Robyn, beware. When old Mad Mel was riding high with his sweet young thing, he didn't come to your defense when his family said the two of you were'nt legally married and you conned him into marrying him by getting pregnant. But they forgot you were with him through the lean times and the fat times. Oh yes, Oksana says the split was amicable...I guess you could call it that.She had what she wanted so what was the use in pretending any longer than necessary to be enjoying sex with a drunk.
Kicking back ,having fun and keeping it real as always.
"Sandra and Jesse are talking." a friend of the actress confirms, "most of the conversations are focused on the children, but occasionally Jesse makes her laugh and they forget for a second what he did to her. Of course, Sandra misses him. You don't just stop loving someone because they cheated. The divorce is definitely still on, but could I see them getting married down the road ? It's not impossible." Although it's the last thing on her mind at the moment, sources say that Hollwood power players are nervous about the impact any sort of reunion would have on Sandr's career.
PopEater columnist Jo Piazza explains, "The American public is very careful with their sympathy. They are indulging in Sandy's scorned woman narrative, and right now they are squarely on her side. But if she flips this script and returns to what we know is a bad marriage , all of that goodwill and love will go out the window faster than you can say Nazi sympathizer." "It will also harm her whitin the industry, as pairing with Jesse makes her extremely vulnerable and volatile , and no director or studio wants that kind of liability behind one of their actress," she adds, "Jesse will only serve to destabilize her career."
Piazza is not alone in her thinking. Publicist-to-the- Kelly Brady of Broadway Creative agrees.
Right now, everyone is on Sandra Bullock's side. She's America's sweetheart and they are rooting for her to move on with her life and to stay strong," she says."If Sandra got back with Jesse, I don't think the public would uderstand. He publicly humiliated her and she will struggle to regain the public's respect if she were to go back to him."
However, not all of the experts agree.
Paula Froelich, New York Tmes best-selling author of "Mercury in Retrograde,' argues, "If she waits long enough and he's changed, all is forgiven. A lot of women have taken back their cheating husbands, especially when a baby is involved."
Paul Dergarabedian, president of Hollywood.com box office division makes a simiar argument, telling me: Saying I think people would feel as they would feel as they would if their sister got back together with someone they didn't like. Shocked and angry at first, then a cautious wait-and-see attitude followed by an understanding that it's ultimately her life and her decicion."
Ultimately, no one puts it better than our friend, the Diane Sawyer of entertainment news, Lara Spencer. The Insider' host says, "I don't think that it wouls effect her career. She has solidified her place as an iconic actress and total sweetheart, and if she feels he deserves a second chance, who are we to judge?"
My spin: Careful walking on trouble waters Sandra...you was warned by one of his mistress that he will never change, he like the notoriety and like to push it to the limit just to see if he can get away with it....

The girl excitedly looks around to see if anybody's watching her. She whispers softly to Pete the man behind the counter, 'I'll TAKE one!'
As Pete packages the frog, he quietly says to her, 'Just follow the instructions!'
She nods, grabs the box, and is quickly on her way home.
As soon as she closes the door to her apartment, she opens the instructions and reads them very carefully She does EXACTLY what is specified:
1. Take a shower.
2. Splash on some nice perfume.
3. Slip into a very sexy nightie.
4. Crawl into bed and place the frog down beside you, and allow the frog to do what he has been trained to do.
She then quickly gets into bed with the frog and to her surprise . . NOTHING happens! The girl is very disappointed and quite upset at this point. She re-reads the instructions and notices at the bottom of the paper it says, 'If you have any problems or questions .. please call the pet store.'
So, she calls the pet store. Pete says, 'I'll be right over.' Within minutes, Pete is ringing her doorbell. The girl welcomes him in and says, 'See, I've done everything according to the instructions. The damn frog just SITS there!'
Pete . . . looking very concerned, picks up the frog, stares 'directly into its eyes' and STERNLY says:
'LISTEN TO ME!!
I'm only going to show you how to do this
ONE MORE TIME.
"The proceeding was conducted in accordance with Mr. Coleman's desires as expressed in his will that no funeral service, wake or other ceremony memorialize his passing," the brief statement said.
Jeffs revealed earlier this week that Coleman's 2005 will specified he wanted no funeral. That document trumped a 1999 will in which Coleman said he wanted to be remembered in a wake conducted by people who had no financial ties to him and "can look each other in the eyes and say they really cared personally for Gary Coleman."
The former child TV star died May 28 at the age of 42 after suffering a brain hemorrhage. He had fallen two days earlier at his home in Santaquin, about 55 miles south of Salt Lake City.Coleman's cremation had been on hold because of a dispute over his assets between his ex-wife, Shannon Price, and ex-girlfriend, Anna Gray. Both contend they are the lawful administrators of his estate.On Monday, a Utah judge appointed Jeffs to oversee Coleman's property and the cremation of Coleman's remains until the dispute is settled.Jeffs has said Coleman's ashes and property will be securely stored until a final determination is made on an estate executor. It's a decision Jeffs said could take months.
Coleman's 1999 will named Dion Mial, one of Coleman's friends and former managers, who on Monday withdrew his petition to be named as the special administrator of Coleman's estate. Mial's attorney said the 2005 will, which names Gray as administrator, takes precedence because it is more recent.Price is named in a 2007 handwritten note by Coleman that is intended to amend any earlier wills. The note names Price as the sole heir of Coleman's earnings, home, toy trains and other property.
"I made this change of free will and was not coerced in any way," says the note dated Sept. 4, 2007, less than a month after Coleman and Price married. "This I have done because of my personal selfishness and my weakness and I love her with all my heart."Price and Coleman met in 2005 on the set of the comedy "Church Ball." They divorced in 2008.
Coleman was still conscious when he was taken to a hospital in Provo on May 26 but slipped into unconsciousness the next day and was placed on life support. It was Price who ordered that Coleman be taken off life support. In 2006, Coleman signed documents giving Price legal authority to make medical decisions for him if he couldn't.
Lawyer: Coleman’s ex was ‘harsh’ and ‘domineering’
As the battle for control of Gary Coleman’s estate rages on between the actor’s ex-wife and ex-girlfriend, his former attorney Randy Kester took a break from the legal fray to slam the side he isn’t supporting. In an interview with Radar Online, Kester accused Coleman’s ex-wife, Shannon Price, of treating the star cruelly during her marriage to the “Diff’rent Strokes” actor.
Kester, who represented Coleman in recent years, claimed the couple had a troubling dynamic and that Price routinely disrespected the actor, “frequently (calling) him stupid,” and even made “comments about his stature.” And Price’s alleged problems with Coleman didn’t end with name-calling.
“It was awful. The neighbors take on Shannon is that they didn’t ever understand the relationship,” Kester recalled. “Many of them would come over and carry Gary, when he was very ill, out of the car and into the home ... and (they) have made comments about how she just kind of didn’t seem to care. She was more concerned with getting her packages into the house than making sure that Gary was brought safely into the home.”
In the end, Kester considered it “an inappropriate relationship” and simply witnessing it disturbed him.
“Shannon’s treatment of Gary was harsh and it was domineering, and it always bothered me,” the lawyer explained.
*Poor Gary, he had a pretty harsh life. People used and abused him, including his own parents. All he wanted was what all of us want; to be loved for himself. I hope you are at peace now Gary.
According to Murphy, while he understood the likelihood of on-set hookups, he hoped to minimize the off-screen drama with one simple stipulation.
“I've certainly dated people I've worked with and, you know, when you work on a set for 18 hours a day I think it's natural,” Murphy explained to Heat magazine. “But I have a rule: Don't do it in your trailer.”
It was rule certain unnamed members of the “Glee” club didn’t follow.
“They've broken that rule on many occasions,” Murphy said. “I'm like, 'I know you guys are young and hormonal, but don't do it in your trailer.' I'm the dad, that's what I say'.”
Not that Murphy has to worry quite as much as the typical father of hormonal high schoolers. After all, despite the fact that they play teens on the small screen, the stars of “Glee” are all over the age of consent.

My spin....Take a look at our favorite ginger-man...old Dave wasn't such a bad looking guy about 7/8 years ago...but damn look at him now...do you think the wear and tear on his old body is caused by sleepless nights and holding his dangle in his hand ?? Maybe he changed bimbos so often because Marg threw his nasty butt to the curb and he didn't think she would ever leave him.
Maybe he left Liza because he was actuallyafraid when she threatened to cut off his woo-woo. Old Dave looks and acts like a very lonely and sad man these days. A word if I may Dave...you have to treat a woman with respect and not as a doormat....Until you do, you better take out some penis insurance....but hey, that's just me....

Directors: Jay Duplass, Mark Duplass
Writers: Jay Duplass, Mark Duplass
Cast: Marisa Tomei, John C. Reilly, Jonah Hill, Catherine Keener, Matt Walsh, Katie Aselton
Plot: With John's social life at a standstill and his ex-wife about to get remarried, a down on his luck divorcee finally meets the woman of his dreams, only to discover she has another man in her life her son. Written and directed by Jay and Mark Duplass, the iconoclastic filmmaking team behind Sundance Film Festival favorite "The Puffy Chair," "Cyrus" takes an insightful and funny look at love and family in contemporary Los Angeles.
Listed at $6,75 million, the Sunset Beach property was recently remodeled in 2002. Located right on the sands and a few miles from Newport and Huntington Beach piers, it's four bedrooms , each with it's own bethroom, are spread across two levels.
The design inside the house is pretty relaxed, nothing too glamorous except for gleaming hardwood floors and first-class view of the Pacific Ocean. Still, since we all love to peek inside celeb's homes,lets take a look around.
Speaking of views, they're best from the great room, ( third photo from top).Canterra stone floors and subdued furnishings give the place a rustic feel. Crown-molding and a grid ceiling adds character. Vintage suitcases, a natural-wood sofa table and potted palms bring to mind 'Old Florida.' There's a glass-enclosed patis off the room, containing a pool, grotto, waterfall. tiki touches and a waterslide.
The kitchen is well appointed, but not movie-star exciting. custom maple-wood cabinetry is crowned with granite counter-tops and stainless steel appliances. A crescent-shaped granite slab divides The Great Room from the kitchen. An ornate iron staicase plays off the Mediterranean decorating theme.
Because of the sellers celeb status, the new owners will have to contend with an extensive surveillance system, complete with security cameras and professional quality audio and video systems.
Just down the street, also in Sunset Beach , is a three bed-room condo which James owns...asking price of $1.29 million....but that's a story for another day, so stay tune, updates as they become available....the Jesse James saga continues.
My spin :The best part about Celebrity break-ups , some really sweet deals in real estate hits the market. Is the free ride over for Jesse, I really hope so? I heard on the grapevine jesse was going to follow Sandra to Austin, Texas, run Sandra to your Manison in New Orleans or your estate in Atlanta, Georgia, the fool went to rehap for sex addiction, but one of his mistress told you he wasn't going to stop , Jesse just misses your money. I f Jesse James follow Sandra as he plans, he will not be welcome in her hometown and there's some pretty rough guys/gals there and they don't care who Jesse' s great-grandfather was.
Kicking back having fun and keeping it real as always...see you in the funny papers.
