Entertainment behind the scenes
Less than a year after having her breasts enlarged to X-rated proportions (along with a further 11 astounding cosmetic procedures at the same time), reality TV starlet Heidi Montag is finding out the downside of a G-sized bust.
For one thing, she can’t hug her four dogs (it hurts too much), and then there are the clothing limitations (not much in the way of off-the-peg outfits that size). Not to mention the fact that they get in the way of regular work-outs and that she feels “trapped in my own body”, according to Life & Style magazine.
Oh, and all those plastic surgeries also ruined her short-lived marriage to her “The Hills” co-star Spencer Pratt.
Heidi tells Life & Style magazine she is now looking for a plastic surgeon in South America (?) to remove the super-sized implants and bring her down to a smaller D cup. Or a double D.
The top three directors at the North American box office have walked down the aisle a total of 11 times, leading to the decidedly unscientific conclusion that romantic comedies may be better for your marriage than heavy dramas.
Garry Marshall (pictured at left), the man behind last weekend’s champion “Valentine’s Day” as well as “Pretty Woman” and the sitcom “Happy Days,” let the team down by being married just once, to the same woman since 1963 (per Wikipedia).
In the wake of their announcement on Monday night’s show on cable channel TLC that they will split up, television reality couple Jon and Kate Gosselin and their eight children will take a break from the show centered on their life as a large family, the channel said on Tuesday.
“TLC continues to support the Gosselin family and will work closely with them to determine the best way to continue to tell their story as they navigate through this difficult time,” the channel said in a statement.
U.S. media is becoming increasingly crowded with celebrities who are famous for being famous. Jon and Kate Gosselin are famous for having a crowded house, with a pair of twins and a group of sextuplets. But the abode of the two reality TV stars of “Jon & Kate Plus 8″ on cable channel TLC could get slightly less crowded. That’s because on Monday’s show the couple going through marriage turmoil will make a big announcement, according to a promo that circulated on the Internet on Thursday.
All the Gosselins’ children are under 9 years-old. Sadly for the family, Jon and Kate have been spending a lot of time apart since he was photographed in April leaving a club late at night with another woman. Since news of the pending announcement, the New Jersey Star-Ledger and numerous other media outlets have speculated that the Gosselins could be headed for a divorce or a separation.

If tabloid rumors are to be believed, baseball star Alex Rodriguez and pop diva Madonna have been spending a lot of time together, flying around the country, planning to buy an apartment together and generally getting very up close and personal since their recent twin divorces.
But Rodriguez, 33, is not playing ball with all that talk. After weeks of silence about their relationship, the sports star is trying to dispel talk of romance with Madonna, 50.
Model Christie Brinkley walked away from a brutal divorce trial agreeing to pay $2.1 million to her ex-husband, Peter Cook, whose dirty laundry was aired in court in testimony describing his affair with a teenage assistant and how he ponied up $300,000 to keep her from tellling anyone.
And so it may come as little surprise that Brinkley, 54, a 1980s magazine glamour queen who has been married four times, has no plans to head back to the altar.
“I’m not going to marry again,” Brinkley told the New York Post in a story published online on Friday.
“I know too much about the marriage laws and divorce laws,” she said. “Getting married again would not be a very intelligent thing to do.”
Cook will probably be remembered as Brinkley’s most notorious husband, after five days of testimony that revealed his $3,000-a-month porn habit and the lengths he went to keep his affair with then 18-year-old Diana Bianchi a secret.
The New York Post reported that Brinkley’s estate is worth an estimated $60 million, and that she gets to keep her 18 houses in the divorce settlement.
Brinkley, who was photographed in stylish clothes as she came and left the courtroom, said there was one good reason to settle the case.
“I was down to my last outfit!” she joked. “It had to end.”

It’s been a tough two days in divorce court for model Christie Brinkley, an icon of 1980s glamour, and her estranged husband, Peter Cook. The two were married in 1996, and their divorce proceeding is in a Long Island, New York court to resolve child custody issues.
Brinkley has accused husband Cook of cheating on her with a teenager and being hooked on porn in a New York trial that has elicited tearful testimony from each and an appearance from Brinkley’s daughter, Alexa, from her former marriage to singer Billy Joel.
People magazine reported online that documents filed on Thursday show the couple, who separated back in 2006, had reached an agreement on finances and custody of their two children, after seven years of marriage.
Decisions, decisions. In a bizarre admission, British socialite Jemima Khan has revealed how she decided once and for all to dump a boyfriend only when the watch he bought her stopped. In a recent article in Vogue magazine, the 34-year-old described her indecision as a “chronic affliction” that had got steadily worse over the last decade.
While no names were mentioned, the British press wasted little time in naming the jilted lover in this case as actor Hugh Grant, who the Daily Mail reported bought then-girlfriend Khan a 3,000-pound watch to match his own in 2004. The couple split in 2007.
