[UPDATE] Natalie Wood Death Case

Natalie Wood Death Case: Boat Captain Passes Polygraph / Other Information Received
The recently reopened case of actress Natalie Wood’s drowning death focuses on new information that may implicate those on board the boat the actress fell from 30 years ago, including the boat’s captain, who has passed a lie detector test.

Dennis Davern, the captain of the Splendour, the yacht which the actors were staying on, said that he heard Wood and husband Robert Wagner arguing moments before she disappeared. Davern has said that he believes Wagner had a role in Wood’s death.

Davern had a lie detector test performed on him by examiner Howard Temple, who says that the results of the polygraph “indicated he was telling the truth.”

In this exclusive interview with “Good Morning America,” Temple said Davern told him that after Wood’s death Wagner instructed him to not speak about the drowning.

“Davern made the statement that he stayed at the Wagner home … [was] told not to talk …Wagner paid for his therapy, and Davern could not leave the estate without bodyguards,” Temple said.

In an NBC interview last week, Davern said ”Yes I would say so,” when asked about Wagner’s responsibility. He admitted that he may have been at fault as well, saying, “We didn’t take any steps to see if we could locate her. It was a matter of don’t look too hard, don’t turn on search light, don’t call anyone.”

Davern also said that he lied to officials in the initial police report. It is unclear whether he could face charges if that’s true.

Davern’s motives in revealing this new information regarding the night of Wood’s death have been called into question after he co-authored a book about the actress’s death. He and Marti Rulli wrote the 2009 book Goodbye Natalie, Goodbye Splendourabout the circumstances surrounding the actress’ death. He and Lana Wood, Natalie Wood’s sister, asked authorities to re-open the case last year.

ABC News has learned that detectives have now interviewed Marilyn Wayne, the boater who was aboard a ship 40 yards away that night in 1981. She claims she heard Wood screaming for help moments before she allegedly drowned off the coast of Catalina Island in California.

“They talked to me about what I remember from the case all those years ago,” Wayne told “Entertainment Tonight.”

Wood, the star of film classics like “West Side Story” and “Rebel Without a Cause,” apparently drowned while boating with Wagner and actor Christopher Walken, with whom she was filming what would be her last role in the movie Brainstorm (Remastered Edition) The official cause of Wood’s death was determined to be accidental drowning, but because there has been little concrete information about the circumstances surrounding the events of that night, speculation has been rife and the case remains one of Hollywood’s longest-running mysteries.

Lifeguard Roger Smith, who pulled Wood’s body out of the water, has told “Good Morning America” that he believes the actress may have floated alive for hours.

“I could have saved her,” Smith said, adding that he was “not called in time.”

So far Wagner and Walken, the two men with Wood that night, are keeping quiet regarding the reopening of the case.

When gossip website caught up with Walken in West Hollywood Tuesday to ask him what he thinks about the reopening of the case, Walken simply said, “I don’t know.”

Wagner, the now 81-year-old star of the TV series “Hart to Hart,” is still hard at work, making an appearance as a murder suspect on an episode of CBS’ “NCIS” this week.

Wagner was not charged in Wood’s death, and police plan to reach out to him as part of the re-opened investigation. They say he is not a suspect. - abcnews

NOTE: I don't normally post the celebrity 'gossip' type stuff but there is some interest in this incident so I decided to go ahead with it....besides, it's a slow news day. I received the following email on Monday November 21st. I can't verify the information but simply posting 'as is' for information purposes:

Hello Lon.

Regarding Natalie Wood...

I heard something rather surprising one night in the early 1980s. I was at Trump's restaurant. It was a swanky place at the corner of Roberson and Melrose on the edge of West Hollywood just shy of Beverly Hills. I knew the bartender. He told me that one of the Wagner daughters was in the night before. She was upset and drunk. She told the bartender that she had just discovered that her father, Robert Wagner, was having an affair with Christopher Walken.

It's possible that Nathalie that night aboard 'The Splendor' walked-in on a gay moment between R.J. and Walken and mayhem broke-out.

The following was found after a bit of research:

Actor Robert La Tourneaux gave an interview to a gay magazine naming his famous married closeted bisexual lovers; alleging one of them to have been Academy award-winning actor Christopher Walken, whom he met through Mart Crowley. He also accused Walken of having an affair with another married actor, Robert Wagner, on the night of actress Natalie Wood's (Wagner's wife) unexplained death. - Broadway Babylonby Boze Hadleigh

Dick Van Dyke Mystery Illness Solved ? Actor Blames Dental Implants

Dick Van Dyke thinks he has found the cause of his mystery illness and dental implants might have something to do with it.

Last month, Van Dyke revealed he has been suffering from an undiagnosed neurological disorder for the past seven years. He told his Twitter followers he experiences a pulsing-sensation in his head coupled with severe fatigue. He underwent a battery of tests to try to figure out the problem, including a CAT scan, MRI and spinal tap, but to no avail.

"Tests and scans have yet to reveal a specific diagnosis. Various medications have not diminished the symptoms," his rep, Bob Palmer, told USA Today at the time. He added that the 87-year-old star was in "good physical condition" otherwise, but the fatigue had become acute. The actor was forced to cancel a public appearance in New York City that month because his doctor advised him not to fly out of Malibu.

On Thursday, Van Dyke announced he might've finally found the cause of his mystery illness: dental implants.
TWEET :It seems that my titanium dental implants are the cause of my head pounding . Has anyone else experienced this ? Thanks for all your implies .
The BBC reported last year that dental implants can cause nerve damage and may lead to problems related to pain, speech, eating and kissing. Dr. Joseph Mercola, an alternative physician and New York Times best-selling author, has claimed dental implants can exacerbate autoimmune diseases .

Oscar Pistorius Murder Scence Bloody Photos Surface

Photos of the blood-spattered bathroom where Oscar Pistorius shot his girlfriend to death have surfaced on the web ... and they could prove to be crucial pieces of evidence in the runner's defense.

The pics were taken from outside the bathroom door in the Blade Runner's South African mansion ... and show two bullet holes in the bathroom door ... along with a pool of blood by the toilet ... and a blood trail leading to the stairs.

Another pic shows blood drops on the stairs ... where Oscar says he carried Reeva while trying to call for help.

Oscar admits he shot and killed Reeva Steenkamp on February 14 ... but insists it was an accident.

In fact, Pistorius told investigators he grabbed his gun and fired 4 shots into the bathroom that night ... but only because he thought an intruder snuck into his house and was hiding in the toilet. The holes in the door could back Oscar's defense ... that he truly didn't know who was in the bathroom when he opened fire.

Of course, the person in the bathroom was Reeva -- who ultimately died from her wounds. Oscar was arrested and charged with murder.
Bad Genie & Witchy says what HUH ???
This A-hole is going to get free because he is a national hero over there. No way they will convict him. Just like OJ he should be hanged for what he did.

Even if it was an accident, isn't it a bit of an overreaction to shoot blindly into your bathroom? Couldn't he have just asked if anyone was in there first - before executing them? He must be totally paranoid.

'Behind the Candelabra': Michael Douglas & Matt Damon

Michael Douglas and Liberace: A Side-By-Side Comparison

Sunday night marks the premiere of "Behind the Candelabra," a Liberace biopic starring Michael Douglas as the flamboyant pianist. Based on a memoir by the musician's young lover Scott Thorson (played by Matt Damon), the HBO film has received mostly positive reviews, with critics noting that its stars disappear into their roles, both physically and metaphorically.

"It had to look as real as possible, so we spent a lot of time in the makeup chair," Douglas, 68, told the Metro newspaper. "Before you know it, everything seems to come together. You put on the right outfit, have the right hairdo and there you go!"

But how successful were they? Take a look!

Sunday night marks the premiere of "Behind the Candelabra," a Liberace biopic starring Michael Douglas as the flamboyant pianist. Based on a memoir by the musician's young lover Scott Thorson (played by Matt Damon), the HBO film has received mostly positive reviews, with critics noting that its stars disappear into their roles, both physically and metaphorically.
One of Liberace's most famous get-ups was his King Neptune costume, which reportedly weighed over 200 lbs. "Candelabra" costume designer Ellen Mirojnick told the New York Post that it took three weeks to create a similar look (with lots of embroidery and appliqué) for Douglas.
The gold lamé-clad star (circa 1950) was one of the greatest performers of all time, but Douglas had a tough time learning to play like the master. So while his glittery piano was right on-point, "I focused on mimicking his hand gestures," he told Metro.
The film focuses on Liberace's sometimes-volatile relationship with Thorson (together in Los Angeles), and features several steamy scenes. "As far as making out with Matt, it's not so bad," Douglas told "Good Morning America." "We rehearsed the scenes. For me, I guess that biggest thrill is when I first saw it, after a few minutes, I really forget it's Matt. Matt and Mike, you know? I just forget it's us."
Liberace, wearing fur in Chicago in 1982, owned many eye-catching ensembles, but his favorite look, his "lasagna" costume, was similar to the one Douglas is wearing. "Liberace used to say that he loved that costume because he could eat lasagna and you would never notice if he spilled on it," Connie Furr Soloman, a costume designer who wrote a Liberace book, told the New York Post.

Even while relaxing in his Beverly Hills home, Liberace (in 1961), looked sharp—and the "Candelabra" crew made sure to replicate his looks as precisely as possible. In fact, Mirojnick told the Post that she had his jewelry recreated exactly in precious metals and veneered.

Justin Bieber : Segway-Riding , Pot-Smoking Nightmare Neighbor --ALLEGEDLY

Justin Bieber is hell on wheels, and not just in his Ferrari -- neighbors tell us they saw him over the long weekend riding a Segway and smoking a joint ... smack in front of neighborhood kids.

Multiple neighbors in the exclusive, gated Calabasas community say Bieber and his friends have turned the neighborhood upside down. We're told they've called cops twice in the last five days over excruciatingly loud noise coming from Bieber's house where parties were going full-bore at 3 AM.

Neighbors tell us Justin has been a real problem in his Ferrari and on his motorcycle. Aside from the incident Monday night when he was allegedly roaring through the neighborhood, we're told Justin frequently drives recklessly. Residents say Justin almost struck a neighbor pulling out of his driveway Sunday.

As for the Segway incident, neighbors say on Sunday Justin was riding side by side with a buddy, who was also smoking a joint on his Segway.

Neighbors tell us the homeowner's board is planning on taking action -- for starters, they've talked to cops who promise they will begin towing vehicles that are left on the street overnight -- a frequent occurrence when Bieber or his friends throw parties.

We're also told the board believes Bieber is running a business from his house -- something prohibited by the association rules. The way they see it -- people living at the house are managing Justin's life, which is part of his career. They are especially irked that security guards sleep in the garage.

Witchy says : You got to be kidding .
So young, so much money, and so freakin stupid. SMH.

He's got two drug addict leeches living with him at that place what do you expect. They probably sell dope out of his pad while he's away.

There are a lot of powerful people with deeper pockets than him living in that community. They will definately have enough of his childish behavior and do something about it. And the key word is community. He does not own the neighborhood. It is a community of people all living in the same area which he cares nothing about that will end his idiocy.


Rob Lowe to Star As JFK in TV-Movie "Killing Kennedy"

Kennedy for the upcoming National Geographic TV-movie "Killing Kennedy," based on the bestselling book of the same name by Bill O’Reilly.

Ginnifer Goodwin is slated to play Jacqueline Kennedy, and Michelle Trachtenberg has signed on to star as Maria, the wife of the slain president’s assassin Lee Harvey Oswald.

"Killing Kennedy" tracks both Kennedy and Oswald in the four years leading up to that November day in 1963.

The TV-movie begins production in June, and is set to premiere later this year.

The 78-year-old "I Dream of Jeannie" actress wowed the crowd at this weekend’s Life Ball in Vienna, Austria, coming on stage in her iconic midriff-baring costume.

New Nickelodeon Movie : Italian-American org . Demands Boycott

An Italian-American group is denouncing "Nicky Deuce," a Nickelodeon movie set to air on Monday, claiming it plays up "hurtful" stereotypes of Italian-Americans as gangsters and criminals.

"Nicky Deuce" stars Noah Munck of "iCarly" as an ordinary teenager who transforms into a mini-mobster when he goes to stay with his uncle in Brooklyn (watch the trailer below).

The movie includes several actors from "The Sopranos" and mafia-related themes.

Now the advocacy organization Italian American ONE VOICE Coalition is slamming Nickelodeon for "irresponsible" broadcasting, calling on parents to boycott "Nicky Deuce."

"These trash-television purveyors now want to brainwash a new generation with this insidious and hurtful stereotype of Italian Americans," said the group’s president Manny Alfano. "We are appealing to all parents – please, don’t let your children watch this garbage."

Calling "Nicky Deuce" "gutter television," Alfano added, "It is beyond reprehensible that a children’s network like Nickelodeon would so grossly abdicate any semblance of corporate responsibility and target young children with a racist, stereotypical movie on Italian Americans."

Nickelodeon is brainwashing your kids to think Italians are all bootlegging mafiosos and it MUST be stopped -- so says a pissed off Italian-American advocacy group, demanding parents BOYCOTT Nick's new flick.

The Italian-American One Voice Coalition -- a major national org. fighting against negative Italian-American stereotypes -- is peeved over the TV movie, "Nicky Deuce" ... set to bow on May 27th.

FYI :The flick is about a dorky Italian-American teenager who transforms himself into a mobster (to be cool, duh) ... just like his Italian-American uncle, who has mafia ties. Like "The Sopranos" with kids.
But One Voice tells TMZ ... this "trash television" is an affront to their culture, meant to "brainwash a new generation with an insidious and hurtful stereotype of Italian Americans."

"It is beyond reprehensible that Nickelodeon would so grossly abdicate any semblance of corporate responsibility and target young children with a biased, stereotypical movie."

They add, "We are appealing to all parents to not have their children watch this garbage."

Now here's the trailer. You decide ...

Cannes: Robert Redford Gets Standing O for All Is Lost

Robert Redford in All Is Lost 

Robert Redford  received a standing ovation for his performance in All Is Lost at the film's Cannes premiere.  The Oscar-winning actor and director, who portrays a sailor lost at sea, is the only actor in the largely speech-free production.

It is the second movie from director JC Chandor, whose first feature Margin Call (2011) was nominated for an Oscar for best original screenplay.
"I believe in the value of silence in film,'' Redford told reporters about the movie, which features only a few lines of voiceover. The film, showing out of competition at this year's film festival, has received rave reviews from a number of critics.  Variety called Redford "superb" in his "emotionally resonant one-man showcase".

Chandor and Redford worked together for nearly three months in Mexico shooting the film about a man battling the elements.
"He was relentless in his vision, but also very respectful, and it encouraged me to give it more and more," the 76-year-old actor told a press conference.

Redford, who is known for his roles in All the President's Men and The Way We Were, is president of the Sundance Institute which supports independent film makers.

His forthcoming political thriller The Company You Keep, which he stars in alongside Transformers actor Shia LaBeouf,  will be released this summer.

The release date for All Is Lost  has not been confirmed.

Morgan Freeman Falls Asleep During Interview for New Movie

The publicity circuit for a new movie can be exhausting -- as an actor you've got to do countless interviews and promotional spots, trumpeting a film that you might not even like that much. But very few times has this level of exhaustion been captured on tape... until now. While Morgan Freeman was doing local TV interviews with Michael Caine for their new magician thriller "Now you see me," he nodded off several times (more like "Now You Zzzz Me," right?).

While Caine was being enthusiastic about the movie, discussing the scale of the tricks, Freeman begins to close his eyes. Then his head droops and you realize, he's taking a little nap. The interviewer (from a Fox affiliate in Seattle) either doesn't realize that he's temporarily lost the "Shawshank Redemptio" star or doesn't want to bring it to anyone's attention, so he lobs a softball question about what it takes to be a narrator, and everybody is once again on the same page.

Seeing a movie star fall asleep during an interview is like capturing footage of bigfoot and a unicorn making out; it's the rarest of the rare. "Now You See Me,"  which also stars Woiody Harrelson , Jesse Eisenbreg , Mark Ruffalo , Isla Fisher , Melanie Laurent, Dave Franco, and Elias Koteas, opens on May 31st.

Natalie Wood & Robert Wagner

Did Hollywood  star Natalie Wood   walk in on husband Robert Wagner and Christopher Walken having sex on the night she drown ?
A log has been uncovered that suggests Wagner and Walken were engaged in a sexual act when Wood walked in on them on the night she died
Wood drowned, age 43, after going overboard her 60-foot yacht Splendor on November 29, 1981
Police and the coroner at the time ruled her death accidental
Husband Robert Wagner, now 82, denies being involved in her death and has never been charged
A new coroner's report released in January found she had bruises on her wrists, knees and ankles that could have been 'non accidental'
By Michael Zennie and David Mccormack
PUBLISHED:14:14 EST, 3 April 2013 | UPDATED: 16:39 EST, 3 April 2013
A shocking new revelation has been uncovered in the infamous 31-year-old mystery surrounding the death of Hollywood actress Natalie Wood.
Wood's body was found floating in the sea off Catalina Island, California on Nov 29, 1981. She had been staying on the yacht, the Splendour, along with husband Robert Wagner and their guest and fellow actor Christopher Walken.
The new discovery is the latest in a series of revelations in the case over the past couple of years.

Refusal: Robert Wagner (left) has refused requests by detectives to be interviewed as part of a fresh investigation into the death of his wife Natalie Wood (right) in 1981
Christopher Walken was a guest of Natallie Wood and Robert Wagner on their yacht on the night that she drowned
Authorities reopened the case in 2011 after the captain of the yacht, Dennis Davern, claimed he had originally lied to the authorities and a new coroner's report published in January revealed that Wood sustained bruises to her face and other parts of her body before she went overboard and drowned.
Now the National Enquirer claims to have uncovered documentation - an official lifeguard log - which suggests Wagner and Walken had engaged in a sexual act and that Wood may have walked in on them and set off the chain of events which lead to her untimely and still unexplained death.
The note, which is torn and illegible in parts, reads 'also known Chris Walken and Robert Wagner were engaged in sexual activity in cab of boat... (illegible)...that Ms Woods found both of them together (illegible)...stated they took her away in a (illegible)...was the last time she was seen alive.'
The Los Angeles County lifeguard, who worked with detectives on the case, told The Enquirer he made the notes on the log after detectives told him that it was a scenario that were considering as a possible motive for any crime that might have been committed on the boat.
Party: Ms Wood, Mr Wagner and actor Christopher Walken were aboard the boat - along with captain Dennis Davern (right) when she disappeared and drowned
If legitimate, the documentation could help shed further light on the case which is remains a mystery 21 years after the tragedy occurred.
Ms Woods death was initially ruled an accidental drowning, caused by her slipping and falling from the dinghy, but authorities reopened the case in 2011.
Davern, who said he had originally lied to authorities, now claims Woods and Wagner had been fighting in the hours before her body was found.
Neither Wagner nor Walken has ever been charged in connection with the case.
In January a new coroner's report revealed that bruises found on the actress' face, wrists, knees, and ankles occurred before she went into the water - not, as the 1981 report had concluded, as she struggled to climb back aboard the yacht after falling over the side.
Those bruises could have been 'non-accidental' and she could have been assaulted aboard the yacht, the medical examiner claimed.
Beaten: Ms Wood, seen here in 1962, had bruises on her wrists, knees and ankles that were consistent with her being beaten, according to a new coroner's report released in January
The new coroner's report poked numerous holes in the original autopsy reporting and the ruling that her death has been accidental - however it stopped short of calling her death a homicide.
Wagner's publicist, Alan Nierob, told MailOnline in January that he would not comment on the report.
Los Angeles County sheriff's detectives reopened their investigation in 2011 after the captain of the yacht claimed that Wood's husband, Robert Wagner, was with her right up until she went overboard.
Her death was ruled 'accidental' at the time, but in 2012, the coroner changed the ruling to 'undetermined.' The coroner's office said in the new report that it is not have enough evidence to rule on the manner in which Wood died.
However, the report did pay special attention to the bruises found on Wood's body.
'The location of the bruises, the multiplicity of the bruises, lack of head trauma, or facial bruising support bruising having occurred prior to entry in the water,' the report stated.
Fatal: This is the yacht Splendor that Ms Wood and Mr Wagner were aboard when the actress went overboard and drowned off Santa Catalina Island over Thanksgiving weekend in 1981.
Dangerous: Ms Wood reportedly could not swim. Her body was found floating in the water near Catalina Island hours after she went overboard.
Tragic: New information released in the last couple of years has cast suspicion on the original finding that Ms Wood's death was accidental (pictured here with Mr Wagner).
Confession: Dennis Davern, the skipper of the yacht, says he lied to police about what happened the night Wood drowned.
'Since there are unanswered questions and limited additional evidence available for evaluation, it is opined by this Medical Examiner that the manner of death should be left as undetermined,' Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Lakshmanan Sathyavagiswaran wrote in the report completed last June.
Wagner has told investigators that Wood, who could not swim, must have fallen in the water when she got up to try to retie a dingy that had been knocking against the side of the yacht.
He is not considered a suspect by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office.
Wood's body was found to have a blood alcohol content of 0.14 percent, nearly twice the legal limit for driving. She was also found to be under the influence of a motion sickness medication and a painkiller, which likely increased her level of intoxication.
Her body was found floating off Catalina Island, near Los Angeles, several hours later.
The captain of the yacht, Dennis Davern, told '48 Hours' and the 'Today' show last year that he heard Mr Wagner and Ms Wood arguing the night of her disappearance and believed Mr Wagner was to blame for her death.
He said that after Wood went to bed, he heard the fight continuing in her cabin, including sounds of a physical struggle.
He also claimed that a fight had broken out between Wagner and actor Christopher Walken, who was also aboard to yacht.
Mr Davern claims Wagner waited several hours after his wife disappeared to call authorities.
Wood, 43, rose to stardom in 1947 playing little Susie, the girl who didn't believe in Santa Claus, in 'Miracle on 34th Street.'
She later starred as Maria in 1961's 'West Side Story' and was nominated for an Oscar for her role opposite James Dean in 'Rebel Without a Cause.'
Wagner, now 82, admitted he had a fight with his wife on the night of November 28, 1981, but said she was not in her cabin when he went to bed.
He maintains he had nothing to do with her death, though said he feels personally responsible for not looking after her.
However, Davern reportedly offered an alternate explanation for Wood's death. Lana Wood, the actress' young sister, claimed to author Suzanne Finstad that Davern called her and drunkenly confessed that Wagner allowed his wife to drown.
'He said it appeared to him as though (Wagner) shoved her away and she went overboard. Dennis panicked and (Wagner) said, "Leave her there. Teach her a lesson." Dennis said he was very panicky that he was sitting and (Wagner) kept drinking and kept drinking.
‘And he’d say, "Come on, let’s get her." And he said (Wagner) was in such a foul mood, at that point, that he then shut up and was waiting for when, when are they gonna go to her rescue, until all the sound stopped,’ Lana is heard telling Finstad in recordings make for her 2001 book Natasha: The Biography of Natalie Wood.
Lana continues on to say that Davern did not think that Wagner meant for Wood to die but he did not ‘run to her aid.’
'Even if he did not kill her, which is what I understand the guy’s saying, it was – you know, that it – it was an accident,' Lana said.
In January investigators also revealed that Robert Wagner has declined to be interviewed for the latest inquiry.
Detectives began re-investigating the case in November 2011. Investigators interviewed more than 100 people – including Mr Walken - but Mr Wagner refused and Sheriff's Lt. John Corina has said the actor's representatives have not given any reason for his silence.
The setup:
On November 28, 1981, the 60-foot yacht Splendor set out for Santa Catalina Island, a rocky island off the coast of California, 22 miles from Los Angeles. Aboard were Robert Wagner, Natalie Wood and the boat's skipper, Dennis Davern. The couple also brought Wood's newest costar, Christopher Walken, to celebrate their successful completion of filming for 'Brainstorm,' a science fiction thriller.
Wood, Wagner and Walken departed the yacht and rode a dingy to shore, where they had dinner at Harbor Reef Resultant on the island. Waitresses reported that all three Hollywood actors drank heavily - mostly champagne - and were rude and boisterous.
Witnesses say all three were very intoxicated about 10.15pm when they piloted the dingy back to the yacht, which was anchored offshore.
Exactly what happened after the three returned to the boat remains a mystery.
The tragedy: Wood's body was found floating in the water about a mile from the yacht about 8am on November 29 and the coroner determined that she had died of a combination of drowning and hypothermia.
Her blood alcohol level at the time was 0.14percent - nearly twice the legal limit for driving. She also had motion sickness medication and painkillers in her system, which likely increased her level of intoxication.
The time of death is estimated at about midnight at on November 29.
'The fact that her stomach contained 500 cc of partially digested food material supports that opinion of that time of death being around midnight, especially given the information that dinner was consumed between 8 and 9pm,' according to the new report.
However, Wood was not reported missing until 1.30am - fully 90 minutes after she went overboard, according to an interview with the manager of the restaurant on shore.

Arnold & Maria : It Ain't Over Yet

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver are in no rush to get divorced ... and there are 2 lines of speculation -- either they're so rich it doesn't matter, or they may actually get back together.

Several sources connected to the former couple tell TMZ ... neither Arnold nor Maria feel any urgency to get a judge to make the divorce official, even though all of the money and custody issues have been worked out. The reason, they say, is simple ... They're worth approximately $400 million -- which they agree they'll split down the middle -- so it's not like they need the divorce to buy a house.

Short story -- neither one of them is in a hurry to pull the trigger, because it will have NO IMPACT on their day-to-day lives.

And other sources say there's a different reason why they haven't gotten divorced -- they are not done with each other, and there's still a chance they'll get back together. Our sources say both Arnold and Maria have sent mixed messages to their friends and family -- at times saying they want the divorce, and other times talking about how they still feel love for their longtime partner.

One source says ... lately Maria is more amenable to divorce because she's hearing that Arnold has a girlfriend.

FYI, Arnold and Maria were together last weekend at their daughter Christina's graduation ... looking pretty happy.

Witchy wants to know if they are serious :
Arnolds already been out screwing everything he can......she just figures why bother divorcing him!

That is a beautiful picture  of both of them, looks like a "NightMare I had The other Night"...

Ahhhhh-nold....Where is your other Son, was he even invited to his half-sister's Graduation?

Ray Manzarek : Legendary Rock Club Honoring Doors Death

It's the kind of memorial rock stars dream of ... famed Sunset Strip nightclub Whisky a Go Go -- where The Doors got their start back in the 60s -- will be honoring Ray Manzarek on its marquee for the rest of the week, TMZ has learned.

Ray Manzarek -- who co-founded "The Doors" with Jim Morrison in 1965 and played keyboard -- has died, this according to the band's official Facebook page.

Manzarek was 74.

According to the website, Manzarek passed away today at the RoMed Clinic in Rosenheim, Germany after a lengthy battle with bile duct cancer.

At the time of his death, Ray was surrounded by his wife Dorothy and his brothers Rick and James.

Along with Jim ... Ray and The Doors churned out some of the most iconic rock songs in history -- including, "L.A. Woman," "Break On Through to the Other Side," "The End," "Hello, I Love You," and "Light My Fire."

Doors' guitarist Robby Krieger released a statement saying, "I was deeply saddened to hear about the passing of my friend and bandmate Ray Manzarek."

He added, "I'm just glad to have been able to have played Doors songs with him for the last decade. Ray was a huge part of my life and I will always miss him."

According to the band's official Facebook page ... Ray's family has asked that in lieu of flowers, fans should make an in memoriam donation in Ray's name to

Today on TMZ Live, Harvey reminisced about the time he met Ray 15 years ago -- and completely embarrassed himself in the process. Really funny story.

A rep for the famed rock club tells us, the marquee memorial will stay up tonight through Saturday -- and every show in the meantime will be dedicated in Manzarek's honor.

The rep says the club will also be briefly "going dark" tonight at 8pm in remembrance.

As we reported, Manzarek -- one of the founding members of the iconic rock band -- passed away today following a long battle with bile duct cancer. He was 74.

The Doors were playing as the house band at the Whisky -- opening for acts like Van Morrison -- when a record exec discovered them and gave the band their first big record deal.

3:55 PM PT -- The Roxy -- another famous Sunset Strip rock club -- has beat the Whisky to the punch ... already erecting its own marquee in Manzarek's honor.

Manzarek is best known as a founding member of the classic rock band The Doors, along with John Densmore, Robby Krieger and the group's charismatic (and controversial) frontman Jim Morrison.

"I was deeply saddened to hear about the passing of my friend and bandmate Ray Manzarek today," Krieger said in a statement. "I'm just glad to have been able to have played Doors songs with him for the last decade. Ray was a huge part of my life and I will always miss him."

The group formed after Manzarek met Morrison while studying film at UCLA in the early-'60s. Later that decade, they became a force on the Los Angeles music scene and helped define the sound of sixties rock. Among their indelible hits: "Break on Through to the Other Side," "L.A. Woman," and "Hello, I Love You."

Following Morrison's death in 1971, the group eventually disbanded, but Manzarek continued to write and record music and wrote a memoir on his time with the band in 1998, titled Light My Fire: My Time with the Doors. His role as the shrewd, straight-laced member of the group was also immortalized in Oliver Stone's 1991 movie The Doors.

At the time of his death, Manzarek was surrounded by his wife Dorothy and his brothers Rick and James. He is also survived by his son Pablo and three grandchildren, Noah, Apollo and Camille.

The PICs is sending their condolence :
The great thing about it? Ray lived before he died. That's how I look at it when someone goes. Can't help but question did they make the most of it? Think for themselves & enjoy it? From what I've read of his life, I think Ray clearly did. & that's the best thing anyone can ask for. A happy interesting life.
What a great musician he was. I wish I could have seen The Doors play, but I will always remember the great keyboard playing in the songs. Mystical, magical and always steady in arrangements.
