Fantasia Barrino Taken To Hospital After Possible Overdose


Former ‘American Idol’ contestant Fantasia Barrino is not having a very good week – and it’s only Tuesday. This morning we told you about the scandal she’s currently involved in regarding an alleged affair with a married man (and a possible sex tape), now this afternoon it’s being reported that she was rushed to the hospital last night over a possible drug overdose.

As I was writing this, Fantasia’s rep confirmed that she was hospitalized, but it was not as serious as the media outlets were claiming. Her rep says that she accidentally overdosed on aspirin and a sleep aid.

“Her injuries are not life threatening. She was dehydrated and exhausted at the time,” Dickens said. “Fantasia is stable now. She will be released from the hospital soon.”

I certainly hope this was an accident and not intentional. All of this negative press isn’t healthy for anyone. We wish her a speedy recovery.

Updated: TMZ says that the police report states “suicide attempt”. I hope it’s a misunderstanding. How scary.

Jennifer Aniston Slammed For Suggesting Dads Are Optional For Families


I KNEW, as soon as I read Jennifer Aniston’s quote about women not needing men to have families that something like this would happen. Sure enough, ‘The Switch’ star is being called out for her comment, according to Fox News.

“(Promoting single parenthood) might be the norm in the Hollywood, but the rest of America believes children deserve and need a mother and a father,” Nathan Burchfiel of the MRC’s Culture and Media Institute told Pop Tarts. “Life is extremely difficult for single moms, with about one quarter of them living below the poverty line. But of course Jennifer doesn’t have to worry about that given her financial resources.”

Lynda Powell of the Bethel Foundation, a non-profit organization that seeks to support single moms attain housing, rehabilitation and mentoring, echoed Burchfiel’s sentiments that the “single life” is far from glamorizing or gratifying.

“Jen needs to come back to the real world of where the average, everyday mother does not begin to make the money to provide adequately for her children,” Powell said.

“We work with single mothers everyday where the father is absent and we see the sadness this brings into the family. From my own experience as a single mother, I know that having a positive male in the family unit makes a huge difference in that child’s life. Our prison systems are now overloaded and many that are in the prison system did not have a male role model in their life. We need to stop and think ‘What are we doing to our children by choosing to have a baby without the family unit intact?’”

I don’t think Jennifer herself has any plans to start a family as a single mother, so I’m assuming her comment was just part of the promotional blitz for her movie ‘The Switch,’ where her character chooses to start a family as a single mom.

Hopefully people aren’t taking their cues on how to live based on what wealthy actresses who are promoting their movies think. Or are they? Do these people have a point, and should Jennifer watch what she says?

Fantasia Denies Breaking Up A Marriage


Uh-oh. We haven’t heard a whole lot from former ‘American Idol’ champion Fantasia Barrino, but this isn’t the best way to get back into the press. Fantasia is being accused of breaking up a marriage in divorce papers, according to OK! magazine.

In her divorce petition filed last Wednesday, Paula Cook singles out Fantasia’s “covert adulterous affair” with her husband as the reason for their breakup, stating that Fantasia once told her over the phone, “He don’t want you. Maybe the next time that you get a husband you’ll know how to keep him. That’s why he is here with me.”

Paula claims that the affair began in August 2009 and that her “Husband and Ms. Barrino have at times recorded their illicit sexual activity.”

OF COURSE there’s a sex tape!

Fantasia’s manager has released a statement denying these claims.

“Fantasia is certain that she is not responsible for the deterioration of the Cooks’ marriage. Fantasia will weather this storm with the dignity and grace that she has exemplified throughout a life in which she has repeatedly overcome obstacles and challenges. Fantasia’s faith in God, herself and family remain as strong as ever.”

Hmmm… that’s not quite a denial of an affair. Well, if there is a tape, I bet it’ll come out.

I REALLY hope this isn’t true!

Photo: Ali Fedotowsky Smoking A Bong


Woops!

You never think you that time in college is going to come back and bite you… but for Ali Fedotowsky it most certainly has. Star Magazine has pictures of ‘The Bachelorette’ smoking out of a bong. What’s more shocking is that dark brown hair color!! I MUCH rather see Ali as a blonde! (j/k)

A source is claiming that Ali is and always will be a party girl.

“Ali was a total crazy party girl and still is, an insider tells Star. “It’s about time the truth about her came out!”

In fact, Star has seen several shots of Ali formerly a brunette in the presence of drug paraphernalia. In our Aug. 19 issue, we reveal Ali’s secret diary of letters, detailing booze benders, marijuana and ecstasy hazes as well as kinky sex desires.

The insider adds, “Her whole girl-next-door schtick was just a way to get into the spotlight.”

What do you think? Is this going to make matters worse for Ali? Or skyrocket her status in Hollywood? It’s like backwards-ville over there. The bad always promotes better than the good.

Report: Charlie Sheen’s Wife Experienced Serious Head Trauma Prior To Christmas Incident


Recently released reports indicate that there may have been a domestic violence incident between Charlie Sheen and his estranged wife, Brooke Mueller, months before their Christmas Day spat.

Police reports from that day note that two months earlier he allegedly threw her around “like a rag doll” during a heated argument at their home in California, during which she accused him of sleeping with prostitutes.

According to the three police reports, she claimed Sheen shoved her head into a piece of furniture, resulting in a head injury that required a CAT scan and treatment by multiple physicians.

Sheen was recently ordered to serve 30 days in rehab as part of a plea deal, in addition to 36 hours of domestic violence counseling.

This is all so sad to read.

Obviously, any type of domestic violence should not be tolerated. At one point, they seemed like such a happy couple with a promising future.

He is a talented comedic actor, so it is sad to see that he struggles with such personal demons. I hope for the sake of their children, both parties can get the help they need and move beyond these difficult times.

Laurence Fishburne’s Daughter Is Proud Of Her Porno And Thinks Her Family Should Be Too

This quote makes me think that Montana doesn’t really comprehend what she did. I mean… she wants her family to be proud of her porno? WHAT??

I want my whole family to be proud of me in anything I do, in any career I choose, I want them to be proud of me, whether I was being a doctor,” she went on. “I know why it’s ‘taboo,’ but I think everyone should be proud. I am proud of my body, I’m proud of what I’ve done, and I’m proud of the work I did.”

So Laurence Fishburne is supposed to be proud that his daughter is in a porno? I understand she’s young, but that is just bananas. Close friends of the family tried to pay Honcho Media $1 million to stop the tapes, but they refused the offer. And guess who is happy they did?

“This is something I want to do,” she said. “I know they’re doing it out of concern for me, but I want people to see it. I want people to buy my movie, so I am happy they didn’t buy it all.

Well, people are going to see the movie… and then completely forget about it. That’s the way the business works. What happened to Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian is RARE. It doesn’t always work out like that…

What do you think? Should a family be PROUD of their daughter if she goes into porn?

Kate Moss’ Newest Venture: Jam Making


Um… ok.

Kate Moss is launching her own range of jam. Who knew that the supermodel had a liking for homemade preserves?! Apparently, she’s been very busy cooking up some variations at her country estate in the Cotswolds. A source told The Sun newspaper:

“Kate bought a load of expensive equipment because she’s always been keen on the idea of making jam. She has so much fruit on her land she wanted to put it to good use.

“It started as a hobby, but she’s taking it a lot more seriously after glowing feedback from friends and family. She’s hoping her plum conserve will be a hit with the public.”

The line is tentatively being called ‘Kate’s Damson Jam’ and she has sent samples to celebrity friends including Simon Cowell.

What do you think? If this hits the market, would it be something you’d want to try out?
