Majority of people know who Billy Mays is, and if they don’t then they probably do not own a television set. Billy Mays was on so many commercials pitching products such as Orange Glo, OxiClean, and Kaboom. He became a pop-culture figure with his booming-voice, friendly demeanor, and distinctive beard. He reminded me of Al Borland (played by Richard Karn) from Home Improvement.
I am sure by now everyone has heard about the tragic death of a great icon. No, I am not talking about Michael Jackson, though that news is incredibly sad, but about the death of Farrah Fawcett at the age of 62. The former Charlie's Angels star passed away Thursday morning at St. John’s Health Center in Santa Monica, nearly three years after being diagnosed with anal cancer.

It’s official. Jon and Kate Gosselin publicly revealed their “separation” on last night’s much anticipated episode of Jon and Kate Plus 8, but before it even aired, People.com got a hold of some legal evidence of their actual filing for a divorce. SHOCKER!
TLC announced that they will be taking a “production break”, although rumor has it that the next episode is scheduled to air on Aug 3rd. I’m sure TLC is fighting this matrimonial turmoil so that they can keep their ratings at their all-time high!
The self-proclaimed “queen of gossip” Perez Hilton claims to have been assaulted early this morning by Will.I.Am from the Black Eyed Peas and his security guards. Supposedly, the assault occurred around 3 A.M. this morning in Toronto after the MuchMusic Awards.
Instead of calling the police himself, like a normal person, Hilton decided to “tweet” about it on his Twitter page:
- Perez Hilton - I’m in shock. I need the police ASAP. Please come to the SoHo Metropolitan Hotel now. Please.
- PH - I was assaulted by Will.I.Am of the Black Eyed Peas and his security guards. I am bleeding. Please, I need to file a police report. No joke.
- PH - Still waiting for the police. The bleeding has stopped. I need to document this. Please, can the police come to the SoHo Met Hotel?
- PH - I spoke to my lawyer. I really need to talk to the authorities. Please come to the SoHo Met Hotel. Have called the police. Need them here.
- PH - The Toronto police are here now. Thank you. Please stop calling them.
Don’t these celebrities ever learn? If you have ever made a sex-tape, burn it! Unfortunately, Leighton Meester did not take this advice. TMZ.com is reporting that there is a video tape of "the gossip girl" and her boyfriend having sex. This tape is making the rounds through the celebrity sex tape market.
The video was shot a few years ago and sources say that it “shows Leighton in mostly innocuous though nude scenes—with several big exceptions…one involving her very talented feet.”
Okay take a deep breath, it’s really not as serious as it sounds. On June 18th, Robert Pattinson was in the city filming scenes from his new fim, Remember Me, when reportedly he was clipped by a taxi.
Pattinson was “hit” when he was fleeing from his crazed fans outside Strand bookstore on Broadway and 12th Street. He was running to reach the solitude and safety of his trailer. A representative told the Daily News that the heartthrob was barely grazed by the taxi. Pattinson reportedly stood still for a moment, and appeared to be stunned. In the meantime his bodyguards screamed at the group of lady fans, “You see what you did, you almost killed him!”
