Mariah Carey Lands Another Acting Gig

Can she act? Maybe…maybe not…does it matter? Definitely not. Mariah Carey will draw in the crowds to any theatre, that’s for sure!

The singer has just landed a big show doing a West End theatre production in the UK although we don’t have any details yet as to what play she’ll be acting in.

“Mariah’s done a bit of acting in her time but nothing on this scale.
She was hugely flattered to have been asked and is determined to nail
the part. She is pretty confident in her own abilities. And although
there has been talk of musicals, Mariah has always wanted to star in a
play so this really is a dream come true.”

What do you think…can she pull it off?

Melissa Rycroft From The Bachelor Working For Good Morning America?

Melissa Rycroft from ‘The Bachelor’ has just landed a new gig…she’ll be working for ‘Good Morning America.’ None of this is rep confirmed, however Melissa Twitterered about it. That’s official enough for me!

Though unconfirmed by the network, sources tell TVGuide.com that
Rycroft will join the morning program this summer as a special
contributor. In that capacity, Rycroft will deliver "uplifting,
summer-type" pieces, our insider says.

Rycroft – who on Wednesday hinted at her new job via Twitter, saying, "Guess who just got a job with Good Morning America???" – is expected to make several appearances throughout the summer.

After ‘ Dancing With the Stars’ and now this doesn’t it make you question her motives for going on The Bachelor in the first place? Was she always out to land some other kind of TV deal? Eh. Probably…but what does it really matter in the end…do women really go on The Bachelor thinking they’ll find true love? Just call me cynical. :)

Cher Supports Chaz Bono’s Gender Reassignment

Cher fully supports her daughter’s decision to have a sex change.
I should hope so! That is her child after all.

The ‘Believe’ singer’s daughter Chastity Bono announced last week she has begun the surgical process to become a man and will now be known as Chaz.
In a statement, Cher said:

“Chaz is embarking on a difficult journey, but one that I will support.
“I respect the courage it takes to go through this transition in the glare of public scrutiny, and although I may not understand, I will strive to be understanding.

The one thing that will never change is my abiding love for my child.”

While Cher now supports her daughter’s choice to swap gender, she was initially shocked when she came out as a lesbian at the age of 18.

According to Chaz’s 1998 book ‘Family Outing’ her mother sent her to a series of psychiatrists after she admitted she was a lesbian.
Even though Cher once caught her daughter in a clinch with a female college friend, the singer refused to accept her daughter was gay.
Cher, 63, previously admitted:

“I flipped out. I’d always had this idea that she would get married and have a family.”

Chaz’s father, Cher’s ex-husband Sonny Bono, was more accepting of her sexuality.
Chaz, 40, was spotted in public on Tuesday, the first time since announcing her decision. I am assuming she will get more paparazzi attention now that she is going through with this surgery.

Mia Farrow’s Brother Committed Suicide

Mia Farrow’s brother committed suicide, police have revealed.
Sculptor Patrick Farrow’s body was discovered by officers at his art gallery in Castleton, Vermont, late on Monday evening and it has now been confirmed he died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

The chief medical examiner in the case said:

"These findings are consistent with evidence found during the investigation. Mr. Farrow’s wife contacted 911 upon discovering her husband unresponsive."

Police had initially classified Patrick’s death as suspicious, but have now confirmed the medical examiner’s suicide ruling is consistent with evidence found at the scene.

Patrick – who owned the Farrow Gallery with his wife, artist Susan Farrow – was Mia’s older brother and one of seven siblings born to author John Farrow and actress Maureen O’Sullivan.

The 66-year-old artist’s death comes just six months after Mia’s 35-year-old daughter, Lark Previn, died after a long illness.
‘Rosemary’s Baby’ star Mia has spoken of her grief at losing her beloved brother.
Her manager Laura Berwick said:

"The family of Patrick Farrow is grieving the tragic loss of their beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother and uncle who sadly chose to take his own life. They greatly appreciate the support of their friends during this difficult time."

My thoughts are with this family.

Billy Joel And Katie Lee Joel Split

Oh NO!

After looooooooooots of cheating rumors swirling around regarding Katie Lee Joel and designer Yigal Azrouel, she and husband Billy Joel have split. Who knows if the rumors were true or if the pressure was just too much for them both to take.

"After nearly five years of marriage, Billy and Katie have decided to separate," reps for the pair said in a joint statement.

"This
decision is the result of much thought and consideration. Billy and
Katie remain caring friends, with admiration and respect for each
other."

But, reps for the couple say that Yigal had nothing to do with the impending divorce, and their friends say the same.

"Their decision to separate was absolutely unrelated to Yigal," Joel’s spokeswoman, Claire Mercuri said.

"It
was really the age difference that caught up with them," said a friend
of the couple. "They grew apart. She is very career-oriented. She loves
going out. She loves the city. When Billy isn’t touring, he’d rather be
on Long Island with his motorcycles and boats."

Still, the friend added, "I can’t imagine the stories about Yigal helped."

One ally of Lee said, "Billy is no one to talk. It wasn’t like he was a monk when he was on tour."

But
a longtime pal of Joel insisted "he’s always remained faithful to
Katie. When he was touring with Elton John, he flew home almost every
night. He rarely stayed in a hotel room. When would he have done this
supposed fooling around?"
