Entertainment Tonight aired video of a celebrity meltdown Saturday. Everyone's favorite blonde was strapped on a gurney and taken to a mental ward, crying that her husband ruined her life. It could get worse if she doesn't win New Hampshire tonight.
General Motors CEO Rick Wagoner will address the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas today and reveal company plans for a driverless car. It's not that far-fetched an idea. They've been testing the prototype in the Oval Office for seven years.
The San Francisco Zoo reopened Thursday, one week after the Siberian tiger leaped over its twenty-foot fence and attacked customers. Attendance at the zoo doubled after the tiger tore up three people. Who says negative campaigning doesn't work?
The New Hampshire primary could narrow the field of presidential candidates today. Everyone's battling for the mantle of change. Last night Barack Obama called for change, John Edwards said he's the agent of change, Hillary Clinton said she had already made change, and Ron Paul's supporters gave him another ten million and change.
Fox News excluded Ron Paul from its GOP presidential debate on Sunday, sparking fury. The network hates any criticism of the president. They even edited the news footage of Malibu in flames last month to take out the scenes of the bushes under fire.
Roger Clemens was asked Friday to testify before the House Oversight Committee investigating the use of steroids. He should meet with the lawmakers. Roger Clemens was such a bad liar on CBS' 60 Minutes Sunday, he could use some pointers from the pros.
Los Angeles was pounded by three rainstorms Friday that left thousands without power and publicity. That explains why Dr. Phil rushed to Cedars-Sinai Hospital to see Britney Spears. They have an emergency generator that can send out press releases.
Britney Spears was taken to a hospital after she stood off police outside her bedroom door Friday. She was drinking and drugging and a had a gun and her baby in the bedroom. Police were summoned when neighbors thought they smelled cigarette smoke.
