Tim Burton’s Trouble With the Ex

timburton.jpgThis one’s kind of juicy.

Tim Burton’s former flame Lisa Marie is suing after a failed mediation.  Their trial date is set for August.

They broke up in 2001 – but she filed suit in 2006.  She wants a payday!

Burton and Lisa Marie hooked up in December 1991 and moved in together the following year. At that point, according to her complaint, the filmmaker promised to “share equally any and all property accumulated” and agreed to take care of her financial needs for the rest of her life.

Wow.  Where can I get that??

While Burton and Carter continued their partnership on- and offscreen, Lisa Marie was “extremely depressed” for several months.

Awwwww…  Poor Baby.  Now gimme some money!

Basically she’s saying that lawyers (who were apparently working for him) conned her into a deal in which she takes a lump sum – But it was a conspiracy!


Most notable – they were never married.  Oh but that’s just, you know, a technicality.

Gotta love the sugar daddies.

Update on the Crazy Quaids

Remember when I told you about Crazy Evi Quaid? Gots an update for you

Randy Quaid has been BANNED FOR LIFE by Actor’s Equity!

Ok, so maybe it wasn’t a touch of the Crazy, but a whole lotta crazy…

In addition to being banned… You know by a THEATER UNION – ie: will never be able to work a union theater project – he’s also been fined for more than $81,572. That would be over the stuff that had Crazy Evi in a tizzy in the first place.  That monetary amount is basically two weeks of pay for the cast of the production he ruined, Lone Star Love.

Heidi Lookin’ Awful in Jail

heidi-fleiss-mug-shot.jpgHeidi Fleiss was arrested!  And GOOD LORD DOES SHE LOOK BAD.

Now, she was never the most – um – beautiful women.

But damn.

Annnnyway…  She and some guy were arrested in Pahrump, Nevada.

When she was pulled over, she had a bunch of prescription narcotics (without proof of prescription,) and her passenger had pot.

Amy Visa Veto’d and then um not

amywinehouseguitar.jpgGrammy nominated Amy Winehouse was supposed to perform at the awards show Sunday…  But then some immigration woes got in the way.  She’s up for 6 awards, which was a definite performance must.

However – U.S. Immigration officials refused her Visa request.  Possibly due to her drug issues?  Haven’t found anything yet giving the reason for the refusal – but I suppose the immigration peeps don’t need to.

Next best thing, though, is going on with the show – via satellite.

Personally – she doesn’t exactly have a good track record when it comes to her performances…  Will she actually do it?

But the news came in today that they will indeed issue the Visa.  Um.  I guess they have the prerogative to change their minds?  Apparently Winehouse appealed.

Due to the logistics, though, she will still be doing the performance by satellite.  I can see that though – with travel time, lack of rehearsal time, and the fact that she’s currently frail anyway?  They just came through with the decision too late.

Uma Thurman to Testify

umathurman.jpgThe stalking trial of Uma Thurman is set to begin March 11th.  The stalker in question…  former Psych patient, Jack Jordan.  Fun!

He was arrested outside her home in October.  He’s apparently been at it for two years.

His attorney, so far, has this to say about him:

He was just a romantic, pursuing the woman he loves.

Wow.  I’m waiting for and if he can’t have her no one can.  He hand delivered a letter to her home threatening to kill himself.  Yeah – a psycho romantic.

The first attempt at contact was trying to get into her trailer on a set – after he traveled cross-country.  After that one his family had him committed.

Jordan has already rejected a plea.

Wow.  Obviously, I’m into celeb’s and their antics…  But I’ve never approached one (even my hard core crushes,) and any mail I sent was as a Jr. Higher writing to fan sites.  I just can’t imagine going to the lengths of  a stalker.

But then again, I’m sane.

Rebecca De Mornay on Probation

rebeccademornay.jpgI’ve really put off posting this…  She’s one of my all-time favorite actresses, and I just hate it when they eff up.  But that’s my job here folks…  (But seriously – check her out in The Hand That Rocks the Cradle…  That’s evil genius right there.)

Ms. De Mornay pleaded no contest to a DUI (she was arrested on October 30th.)  There were two counts – but in exchange for the plea, the 2nd one was dismissed.  She got 3 years probation and $350 in fines plus fees.  She also has to go to rehab.

She registered at 0.09 – a smidge above the legal limit of 0.08.

Former Miss Nevada – Run In With the Law

katiereesmug.jpgI don’t know why I like this story so much – never even heard of the woman before now.

The former Miss Nevada, Katie Rees, was arrested… for allegedly attacking a cop who pulled her over for a traffic stop.  Then, as they were processing her license realized it was invalid, and she had expired tags to boot.  She was not happy.

She lost her crown because some dirty pictures from a spring break trip showed up – which I find funny…  Dude!  Miss Nevada!  Las Vegas!  Dirty pictures are a nono anyway.

She has been released, and has to go to court on Friday.

Heath Ledger and the DEA

heathledgerdea.jpgI’ve stayed away from the Heath Ledger stuff, mainly because it was an accidental overdose, and dude – he’s gone – Didn’t want to illegitimately keep going in the rumor mill!  But…  There’s now news that falls under the little umbrella that’s my site here…

The DEA is now probing into his death.  They want to know how he got the drugs that were in his system at the time of his death.  They want copies of his autopsy and the police reports.

Apparently, 6 different drugs were in his system, causing the accidental overdoes (accidental as all levels were in acceptable amounts – they reacted together) including anti-anxiety meds, sleep aids, and painkillers.

You Know Who

brittneyout.jpg Jeez Guys….  I take one day off because the computer screen is sliding off to the right…  Go to bed with a fever…  Wake up…  and I have to do ANOTHER Britney update post!!

So – to sum up.  Brittney has left the hospital a week early.  The hospital apparently said it couldn’t keep her against her will…  A court representative decided that there was no just cause.  I thought that’s exactly WHY she was there…  A psych hold!! (which kinda means against one’s will)
Then she went to the Beverly Hills Hotel – met up with boyfriend Adnan – then went to see her lawyer Adam Streisand.  Of course, that’s the lawyer who objected to Daddy Jamie being named conservator.

In other news, Sam Lufti – the “manager” that the family filed a restraining order against – has hired Michael Sands.  You know, the Federline camp’s PR dude?  He wants to set the record straight and thinks Sands is the man to do the job.

Sands cryptically told TMZ, who broke this story, that “I’m honored to work with a patriot like Sam Lutfi.”

huh wha??

Meanwhile back at the ranch Jamie met up with Brit and Adnan at the Beverly Hills Hotel.  Except that other reports put the whole fam, Brit, Mom, Dad, and Adnan, back at her Summit home.

As parents of an adult child in the throes of a mental health crisis, we were extremely disappointed this morning to learn that over the recommendation of her treating psychiatrist, our daughter Britney was released from the hospital that could best care for her and keep her safe

We are deeply concerned about our daughter’s safety and vulnerability, and we believe her life is presently at risk. There are conservatorship orders in place created to protect our daughter that are being blatantly disregarded.

We ask only that the court’s orders be enforced so that a tragedy may be averted.
