GM stung by scorpion: Doug Melvin sought medical attention

Image
Brewers general manager Doug Melvin sought medical attention after he was bitten by a scorpion Wednesday night in Phoenix Injuries to MLB general managers are piling up. Days after Yankees GM Brian Cashman broke his leg and ankle skydiving, Milwaukee Brewers boss Doug Melvin was hospitalized after he was stung by a scorpion Wednesday. The Chatham, Ont., native said he spent three hours in a emergency room in Scottsdale, Ariz., after trying to dispose of what he thought was a harmless bug in his condo. “It stung me right through the Kleenex,” Melvin told reporters. “My arm started swelling and then the numbness started going up my arm, like when you hit your funny bone. I was wondering if it might go all the way up my arm and go to my heart. I got nervous when it got up to my shoulder, so I went to the emergency room.” Despite having numbness in his left arm, Melvin was back at work Thursday. FURCAL DONE FOR SEASON Rafael Furcal’s season ended before it got started. The St. Louis C

Miley takes off ring: Cyrus Spotted without ring

Image
Media games: Miley Cyrus left a recording studio in Los Angeles on Wednesday, replacing her engagement ring with another item of jewellery, hours after denying her wedding to Liam Hemsworth was off So after denying reports the wedding was off and bleating on Twitter about the 'lies', Miley Cyrus banged things to rights... by stepping out minus her engagement ring. Not the most obvious response, but perhaps the kind reactionary tactics of a young starlet playing a game with the media. Miley, 20, pointedly held up her left hand as she was snapped by photographers in Los Angeles on Wednesday, brandishing a replacement piece of bling on her wedding finger. Spot the difference: Miley's ring on Wednesday, seen right the 3.5-carat diamond ring Liam gave to her It was not the 3.5-carat diamond Neil Lane ring Hunger Games star Liam bestowed her with last summer. Adding to her attention seeking display was a mean-looking studded leather jacket, short black

Blocked Bids to Fill Judgeships Stir Latest Fight on Filibuster

Image
Caitlin J. Halligan's nomination to the District of Columbia federal appeals court was filibustered by Republicans. WASHINGTON — A fresh feud over federal judgeships has again begun to agitate the Senate, with Republicans so far blocking President Obama from filling any of the four vacancies on the nation’s most prestigious and important appeals court. After Republicans this week filibustered the nomination of Caitlin J. Halligan of New York to the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, Democrats quickly began discussions over how to respond. One possibility is for Mr. Obama to make several simultaneous nominations, in effect daring Republicans to find specific objections in multiple instances. Democrats say Republicans would be hard pressed to come up with legitimate reasons to disqualify all four. “We need to design a strategy to counter the Republicans, and we are going to need the president,” said Senator Tom Udall, Democrat of New Mexico. “Ra

Jim Carrey, Steve Carell bring Burt Wonderstone magic to SXSW

Comedian Jim Carrey speaks before presenting an award during the second annual 2012 Comedy Awards in New York City April 28, 2012. Comedians Jim Carrey and Steve Carell brought a touch of magic to the opening day of the South by Southwest Conferences & Festivals in Austin, Texas on Friday, with the premiere of their new film "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone." "Burt Wonderstone," out in U.S. theaters on March 15, tells the tale of childhood friends Burt (Carell) and Anton (Steve Buscemi) who bond over their love of magic, growing up to become a world-famous magician duo. They soon find their skills and friendship tested in a constantly evolving world of magic and entertainment, as audiences demand something new with the arrival of edgy illusionist Steve Gray (Carrey). Carrey, decked out in a red jacket and silver shoes on Friday's red carpet, said that despite playing a magician, he resented magic. "I've always had this weird relationship with m

Reported: Huge flood on Mars

Image
This image provided by NASA and taken by a camera aboard NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter shows the equatorial plains region known as Elysium Planitia on Mars. Using a radar instrument aboard the spacecraft, scientists made a 3-D map of flood channels below the surface of Mars, apparently created by past flooding. The findings were reported online, March 7, in the journal Science. The face of Mars is dotted with a maze of channels, pointing to possible ancient megaflood episodes. Now scientists peering below the surface have uncovered the first evidence of underground channels apparently created by flooding — a finding that's expected to further illuminate the role of water in Mars' history. Using a ground-piercing radar sensor aboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, a team of scientists created 3-D maps of an equatorial region known as Elysium Planitia and the channels that run underneath the plains. Besides the contributions from rovers and landers, "

Denny Hamlin: I won't pay NASCAR fine

Image
Denny Hamlin at Daytona last month. Denny Hamlin is good and angry about being fined $25,000 by NASCAR for making wht it said were “disparaging remarks” about the new Sprint Cup Gen-6 car on Sunday. “Ultimately, I’m not okay with it,” Hamlin said of the punishment at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. “This is the most upset and angry I’ve been in a really, really long time about anything … anything that relates to NASCAR. The truth is what the truth is. I don’t believe in this. I’m never going to believe in it. As far as I’m concerned, I’m not going to pay the fine. If they suspend me, they suspend me. I don’t care at this point.” NASCAR could do just that, which would hurt Hamlin, who drives for Joe Gibbs Racing, in the Sprint Cup standings. Or NASCAR could deduct the money from his next race weekend. Or it could just drop the whole matter and admit it made a mistake. (Not that sports organizations ever do that … ) In a statement on Twitter, Hamlin indicated he would appeal and added tha

Capriati arrest warrant A Jennifer Capriati arrest warrant is being pursued today by the Police Department of North Palm Beach, Gossip Extra reported this Friday, March 8. According to sources, former women’s tennis champ Jennifer Capriati has a warrant out for her arrest and may be charged with both stalking and battery following a Valentine’s Day “incident.” Under the headline, “Arrest warrant sought for ex-tennis champ, Jennifer Capriati”, a police report revealed that the past winner of a French Open and two Australian Opens met up with an ex-boyfriend at the Oxygen Health and Fitness gym — and the meeting was not a good one. Capriati and her former flame Ivan Brannan allegedly had a “serious argument” by the men’s locker room, and Capriati then reportedly punched Brannan several times in the chest. A yoga instructor on site added that following the Capriati arrest warrant headline this week, the tennis champ did in fact hit Brannan and tried to intervene before Brannan ran

Jennifer Capriati Arrest warrant denied by her laywers

Jennifer Capriati Arrest warrant denied by her laywers New broke that there’s an arrest warrant for Jennifer Capriati, but the former Grand Slam champion’s legal team has issued a statement for allegedly attacking her ex-boyfriend Ivan Brannan. ”There is no arrest warrant for Jennifer Capriati. The case between Ms. Capriati and Mr. Ivan Brannan has not yet been assigned in Palm Beach County and has not been reviewed. The current facts being circulated by Mr. Brannan are an over exaggeration and the police report is one-sided in Mr. Brannan’s favor since they failed to get Ms. Capriati’s side of the story. We will make sure that Ms. Capriati’s side of the story is fully conveyed and when the truth comes out she will be vindicated from these charges.” According to SI.com, the incident happened on Valentine’s Day at a gym in Florida, with Capriati striking Brannan’s chest several times before a yoga instructor broke it up.

Report: Jennifer Capriati arrest warrant sought

Image
Jennifer Capriati An arrest warrant is being sought for Tennis Hall of Famer Jennifer Capriati, according to Gossip Extra. It seems the North Palm Beach Police Department, in Palm Beach, Fla., may be seeking a warrant after a February 14 incident. Capriati, a former women's tennis champion, allegedly ran into a former boyfriend, Ivan Brannan, at a gym, and the reunion didn't go well. The report says she struck him in the chest with her fist multiple times, before a yoga instructor intervened. At that time, Brannan reportedly took cover in the men's locker room and called 911. Once 911 was called, Capriati supposedly left. She was stopped by cops, who verified her identity and let her go. A spokesman with the Palm Beach County State Attorney's office declined to comment on the possibility of any warrant.

Wayne Bengston, left, shot and killed Gregory Rodriguez, right, host of the Sportsman Channel show "A Rifleman's Journal,' while the TV personality was visiting the Bengston's wife A man in the US shot and killed the host of a TV program about shooting - while the host was visiting his wife. Wayne Bengston, 41, then beat his wife, took his two-year-old son to a relative's house and drove to his home about 40 kilometres away, where he apparently killed himself, police say. The victim was Gregory G. Rodriguez, 43, host of the Sportsman Channel show "A Rifleman's Journal". Bengston's wife told police that Rodriguez was in town on business and visiting her at her mother's house when her husband showed up on Thursday night. It wasn't clear how Rodriguez and the woman were acquainted. After the shooting, sheriff's deputies found Bengston's truck parked in hi

Miley Cyrus party with Mystery Man Identified

Miley with a mystery man went to a house party in North Hollywood in March 7, 2013. Miley's wild night out -- without Liam Hemsworth. The "Can't Be Tamed" singer turned up at a house party in North Hollywood on Thursday, March 7 with an unidentified, dark-haired male companion. And, for the second night in a row, the 20-year-old former Hannah Montana star opted not to wear the 3.5 carat diamond engagement ring from fiance Hemsworth, 23. After spending some time at the bash, Cyrus and her mystery man departed together in her car, with Cyrus' friend taking the wheel. (UPDATE: A source confirms to Us Weekly that Cyrus' mystery man is Hemsworth's friend Paul Khoury.) The LOL actress' first ring-less appearance was on Wednesday, as she headed to a recording studio elsewhere in L.A. Hours earlier, she took to Twitter to deny that her 10-month engagement to Last Song costar Hemsworth was off. "I didn't call off my wedding," Cyrus tweeted. (

Credit: ABC/Dave Hagerman After weeks of wading through disastrous group dates, tense rose ceremonies and crazy cat fights in search of his wife, Bachelor star Sean Lowe is finally set to pop the question (or not) to one of his two finalists: Catherine Giudici, 26, and Lindsay Yenter, 24. And, according to show host Chris Harrison, Lowe is "definitely still happy" with his decision even several months after the show finished taping in November. "Oh yeah, he was happy with Lindsay and Catherine [as the final two]," Harrison told E! News of Lowe's decision-making process throughout the season. "I think he aspires and hopes and looks to have something like AshLee represents, I think that's what his parents have." "But I also think that in the end he realized he's just not there yet, and she's a little more mature and a little further along than he is," he continued

Charlize Theron Planning to Launch Denim Jean Line: Report

Image
Charlize Theron arrives at the Oscars at Hollywood & Highland Center on February 24, 2013 in Hollywood, California. A woman of many talents! Charlize Theron always looks stunning in red carpet couture, but the Oscar-winning actress also knows how to rock a pair of jeans -- and she may be putting that skill to good use. Theron, 37, and stylist Leslie Fremar are planning a Theron Jeans line with denim brands, The Hollywood Reporter reports. And extra good news for her fans: the line would reportedly be sold for reasonable prices in mass-market stores. The Snow White and the Huntsman actress' rep, however, told The Hollywood Reporter that she couldn't confirm the project. When it comes to style, Theron is all about keeping it simple these days. The single mother to son Jackson, 13 months, recently shaved her head for a role in the upcoming Mad Max film. "It's great," she told E! News earlier in March. "It's so low maintenance, and having a kid, you

Michelle Obama Slammed by Vivienne Westwood for Dreadful Clothes

Image
Vivienne Westwood; Michelle Obama Say how you really feel, Vivienne Westwood! After bashing Kate Middleton last month, the British fashion designer, 71, set her sights on American royalty: Michelle Obama. In a new interview with the New York Times, Westwood is asked to weigh in on First Lady's fashion -- and her habit of recycling outfits, a practice that Westwood generally supports. "Don't talk about her," Westwood snipes of the President's wife, 49. "It's dreadful what she wears." When asked to elaborate on Obama, who recently debuted talked-about new bangs, and wore a raved-about Jason Wu gang for an inaugural ball in January, the iconoclastic designer continues: "I don't want to talk about it. Really, I can't. She's a very nice looking lady, but it’s a nonstarter regarding clothes that suit her." Westwood compares Mrs. Obama -- unfavorably -- to the most legendarily stylish First Lady ever. "Jackie Kennedy was a di

George Lucas Already Signed Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill for Star Wars

Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford speak onstage during the 33rd AFI Life Achievement Award tribute to George Lucas at the Kodak Theatre on June 9, 2005 in Hollywood, Oops! George Lucas may have just stolen the thunder from his lead stars. The Star Wars creator accidentally revealed in an interview with Bloomberg Businessweek that Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia) and Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) have already signed on for Star Wars: Episode VII. "We had already signed Mark and Carrie and Harrison -- or we were pretty much in final stages of negotiation. So I called them to say, 'Look, this is what's going on,'" Lucas, 68, said of Disney buying Lucasfilm, and planning to release Star Wars: Episode VII in 2015. "Maybe I'm not supposed to say that," he added. "I think they want to announce that with some big whoop-de-do, but we were negotiating with them." Lucas teased, "I won't say whether the

Oz the Great and Powerful Review: James Franco Is Withdrawn, Mila Kunis Languishes in Remake of Classic Tale

Image
Mila Kunis and James Franco in "OZ: THE GREAT AND POWERFUL" Us Rating: ** 1/2 It's got brains. Heart. And yes, even courage. What this Wizard of Oz prequel needs is more imagination. Smarter casting too: A withdrawn James Franco can't quite sell himself as Oscar "Oz" Diggs, a small-time magician and con man in 1905 Kansas who gets caught in a tornado and lands in the magical world of Oz. He's not really a wizard, you see, but the locals believe in his powers and ask for his help in defeating the Wicked Witch of the West. The candy-colored fantasy is essentially a story of good versus evil, represented by witches both luminous (Michelle Williams) and deliciously saucy (Rachel Weisz). Yet, sigh, Mila Kunis languishes in a pivotal role (too spoiler-rich to detail here). And even with a dazzling, CGI-amplified yellow brick road at his disposal, Oz's journey yields no big surprises. Still, the climax cleverly pays homage to the original -- complete w

Kristin Cavallari Wears a Lauren Conrad-Designed Dress

Kristin Cavallari Will fashion bring Kristin Cavallari and Lauren Conrad together? The new mom recently wore a frock designed by her former frenemy Conrad for a photo shoot with the magazine Splash Chicago. Looking slim and stunning, the 26-year-old Cavallari paired Chinese Laundry "Liberta" heels she designed for the brand with a black tulle strapless Paper Crown "Jasper" dress designed by Conrad, 27. (The shoes retail for $149.95 and the dress is currently on sale for $238.70.) Cavallari, who also has a line of affordable jewelry, recently appeared on Watch What Happens Live on Dec. 3, where she revealed that while MTV's The Hills was "pretty fake," her dislike of Conrad was one of the few elements of the show that was real. When host Andy Cohen asked her if her "distaste" for the fashion designer was scripted, she laughed and shouted, "No!"

Rick Springfield Arrested Today

Image
Singer Rick Springfield Singer Rick Springfield was arrested in Los Angeles on Friday after missing a court date relating to a 2011 DUI conviction. The Jessie's Girl hitmaker was expected to appear before a judge last month to prove that he had completed a court-ordered alcohol education program as part of a plea deal he struck with prosecutors two years ago to avoid a stint behind bars. He failed to show and a bench warrant was issued for his arrest on Wednesday. Police turned up at the singer's Los Angeles home on Friday to execute the warrant and he was taken into custody at Lost Hills Sheriff's Station. However, Springfield's lawyer managed to have the warrant recalled by the time he was booked by cops and he was subsequently released. The singer took to his Facebook.com page while at the station and explained the incident to fans, insisting it was a mix-up. He writes, "I didn't know that I was supposed appear in court a few weeks ago. It was to do wit

Nuclear Missiles 'On Standby' Claims North Korea

Image
North Korea Claims Nuclear Missiles 'On Standby' A leading general in North Korea claims the country has a long-range missile armed with nuclear warheads on standby. Pyongyang repeated its Thursday vow to ditch all nonaggression pacts with South Korea and again threatened a "preemptive nuclear attack" on the United States as well. The regime also announced early Friday that it plans to cut off phone hotlines between North and South Korea. It was part of a defiant response to tough new sanctions imposed by the United Nations Security Council. Colonel General Kang Pyo-yong was quoted in North Korea's party newspaper, Rodong Sinmun, as saying his soldiers are already positioned to launch a war of reunification -- taking over South Korea -- whenever the order is given by its leaders. "Our intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) and other missiles are on standby position mounted with various nuclear warheads that have been developed lighter and smaller,&q

Danica Patrick hit in head by rock badly on dirt track

Danica Patrick Danica Patrick says she's fine after getting hit in the head by a rock on a dirt track. Patrick got smacked by a stray rock while attending a race Thursday night, leaving her with a sore head. She had a brief conversation with medical staff Friday, but felt no problems. Patrick says the rock hit her "straight in the head," and she's glad she had a hat on or "there would have been blood." Patrick had one of the most significant crashes of her career last Sunday in Phoenix, slamming into a wall with about 100 laps left and leaving her with a stiff neck and a headache. Patrick became the first woman to win a pole and lead green-flag laps at the Daytona 500 last month, finishing eighth.

Gregory G. Rodriguez was a popular TV host on the Sportman Channel. A man has killed a TV host in Montana in an incident that has shocked fans of the victim, who had worked on the Sportsman Channel show "A Rifleman's Journal." According to reports a northwestern Montana man shot and killed TV host Gregory G. Rodriguez, as the popular TV personality was visiting the shooter's wife. The accused, Wayne Bengston, 41, then is said to have beaten his wife before taking his 2-year-old son to a relative's house. Police have said that the man then drove about 25 miles to West Glacier, where he apparently killed himself. Bengston's wife has reported to police that Rodriguez was in the area for business and stopped by to visit her at her mother's house in Whitefish on Thursday night. However, her husband showed up, sparking a bloody confrontation. Early reports did not confirm how 43 year old Rodriguez and the women knew one another. The shootings sparked a ma

Kelly Osbourne's Seizure: Doctors Still Trying to Figure Out Why

TV personality Kelly Osbourne arrives at the 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards at Staples Center on February 10, 2013 in Los Angeles, California. Get well, Kelly! Kelly Osbourne had a major health scare filming E!'s Fashion Police in L.A. on Thursday, March 7 -- suffering a sudden, 30-second seizure. Costar Melissa Rivers, crew members and an EMT in the audience rushed to her aid before the 28-year-old was rushed to the hospital via ambulance. Still laid up at the hospital, a recovering Osbourne shared a rather graphic TwitPic -- a closeup of an IV in her arm -- and assured fans that doctors are still investigating what led to the seizure. "Thank U all 4 UR beautiful well wishes yes I did have a seizure they are just trying to figure out why?" Osbourne wrote.

Kourtney Kardashian has no qualms about sharing her weight ups and downs with the world. In the March 10 episode of Kourtney & Kim Take Miami, the mother of two -- who welcomed daughter Penelope in July 2012 -- steps onto the bathroom scale while chatting with boyfriend Scott Disick and sister Kim Kardashian. "Do you guys ever, like, pee and then weigh yourself?" Kourtney asks, to which Disick replies, "Yeah, of course. You always gotta go on an empty stomach." When the scale shows that Kourtney weighs 115 pounds, Kim shouts, "115! I am so jealous." "Do you know what you're supposed to weigh for your average weight for your height?" Disick asks his 5-foot tall girlfriend. Kourtney -- who gained 45 pounds during her second pregnancy -- estimates she should weigh 105 pounds. "What were you when

Will Oz be great and powerful at the box office?

Image
This film image released by Disney Enterprises shows James Franco, left, and Michelle Williams in a scene from "Oz the Great and Powerful." WELL, the good news is, the new "Oz" put me in mind of the Tin Man, The Cowardly Lion and the Scarecrow. The bad news - because it could use more heart, courage and brains. "Oz, the Great and Powerful" comes in an opulent 3D package, but it's also a corporate product that confuses enchantment with investment, and seeks to compete with a beloved classic by being longer, louder, more technological and - in the biggest misstep - hipper. You can almost hear the studio guys pursuing four-quadrant demographics: "Let's make the new wizard younger, more handsome. Let's make the witches (Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams) sexy. Let's have some kissing. Some leather pants and high-heeled boots." Or, let's not. Instead, let's remember when the Academy Awards tried to get hipper an

Justin Bieber's performance at the 02 arena was interrupted after he collapsed on stage, according to his spokeswoman LONDON (AP) — Justin Bieber says he is "getting better," after fainting backstage at a concert in London, and the venue says Friday's show is scheduled to go ahead as planned. A spokesman for the O2 Arena said the 19-year-old pop star was treated backstage during Thursday's concert after becoming short of breath, but recovered and finished his set. "As far as we are concerned everything is on, on, on" for Friday's show, Jeremy King said. "He was treated by our team of medics and after further examination they didn't find anything more serious or worrying." A spokeswoman for Bieber said he was given oxygen and took a 20-minute reprieve after fainting backstage at the arena on Thursday. Bieber later posted a shirtless photo of himself in a hospital bed with the caption: "Gettin better listening to Janis Joplin.&q

Demi Moore: You Were Crappy Husband and You will pay Demi Moore may be rich and famous, but she's no different from millions of scorned wives seeking revenge -- and that's why she wants spousal support from Ashton Kutcher ... despite the fact that she's richer than him. There is no way a judge would ever give Demi spousal support.  Short story ... she doesn't need it and she won't get it.   A source close to Demi tells us ... she was "really hurt" by Ashton, whom the source called a "bad husband."  The source would not use the word revenge, but the sentiment was clearly there. That said ... multiple sources connected with the former couple tell us ... Demi and Ashton are in the midst of negotiating a financial settlement, and her lawyer knows the more Demi asks for, the better she'll do in the end.

NORAD evacuated Evacuation Lifted at Headquarters in Colo.

NORAD headquarters in Colorado NORAD headquarters in Colorado were evacuated for about 4 1/2 hours Thursday after employees found five suspicious packages, but the command's control room team was working at a backup location about eight miles away at the time and no essential missions were disrupted, officials said. Employees became suspicious because something about the packages looked "out of place," said Jeff Bohn, a spokesman at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, where the North American Aerospace Command is based. Bohn declined to say what the packages looked like or what appeared to be amiss. Tests performed on the packages ruled out chemical, biological and radiological agents, Bohn said. The packages were then removed and were undergoing other tests, he said. Bohn said he did not know how the packages arrived or whether they had been screened before they were delivered. He said that would be part of the investigation. NORAD is a joint U.S.-Canadian
