Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry, Not On Speaking Terms?

Halle Berry
Has the fight over Nahla begun?  This week's People Magazine reported that a pal of French Actor, Olivier Martinez, has said that Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry may not be on speaking terms.  When the pair split up, last April, it seemed to be amicable, but Aubry recently filed a petition to be formally recognized as Nahla's father and to officially share custody.  Why?  Inside sources say that once Halle starting dating Olivier Martinez things seemed to change.  Seems like he's trying to protect his rights.

Natalie Portman And The $2 Million Question

Natalie Portman
Besides winning a SAG Award, for her leading role in "Black Swan" for Best Actress last night, Natalie had to be escorted on the Red Carpet by security guards.  Why, you ask?  The actress donned $2 million dollars worth of Tiffany jewels!  Way to go!  In her acceptance speech, last night, The Huffington Post reported that Natalie handed out a little advice.  She said,

"My parents who taught me to work my hardest and never be an a**hole.  It's never acceptable."

It's A Bird, It's A Plane, It's.... Henry Cavill! Meet Superman

Henry Cavill

The handsome Brit, star of HBO's "The Tudors", has landed the role of Superman in Warner Bros. remake of the movie, according to "People Magazine".  Zack Snyder, director of the upcoming flick, said,

"In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time, and I am honored to be a part of his return to the big screen," said the 300 and Watchmen director in a statement released Sunday. "I also join Warner Bros. and the producers in saying how excited we are about the casting of Henry. He is the perfect choice to don the cape and S shield."

In 2005 he went up against Christian Bale for the role of Batman and lost.  This more than makes up for that loss.  Congrats Henry and Good Luck!

Charlie Sheen Checks Into Rehab

Charlie Sheen
According to Yahootv, Charlie Sheen has voluntarily checked himself into rehab.  Good for him!  It seems as though he may have had a little help from his family in making that decision.  Nonetheless, only he can make the decision to get rehabilitation.  I posted earlier today that Charlie was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Hospital, in LA , yesterday, for a reported hiatal hernia.  This move comes a day after that scare, so maybe that experience scared the heck out of him.  Sources told "Access Hollywood" that Charlie was driven to Promises rehab, in Malibu, by his father, actor Martin Sheen.

The actor's hit comedy, "Two and a Half Men" will go on hiatus, presumably until Charlie completes his rehab stint.  A rep for CBS said,

"Due to Charlie Sheen's decision to enter a rehabilitation center, CBS, Warner Bros. Television and executive producer Chuck Lorre are placing 'Two and a Half Men' on production hiatus," CBS said in a statement. "We are profoundly concerned for his health and well-being, and support his decision."
Good Luck and Get Well Soon Charlie!

Congrats RiRi!

Helena Bonham Carter Talks About Those Shoes!

Helena Bonham Carter
At this point, who cares, but let's hear it anyway!  "People Magazine" reports Helena likes to break all the fashion rules.  Good for her!  Right?..... Okay, she says,

"Why not wear mismatching shoes? Who says we can’t? I was just having fun. For me, fashion is all about fantasy and putting unlikely things together. That’s what I love. I genuinely love dressing up."
She even went so far as to say that she may wear the same outfit to the Oscars, but with matching shoes!  Helena has been nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in The King's Speech.

Oh, Charlie (Sheen)!

Charlie Sheen
Charlie Sheen was hospitalized yesterday, after a long, wild night of partying with five women (one was a porn star, no surprise there).  He was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Hospital, in LA, where he was, reportedly, diagnosed with a hiatal hernia (painful!), according to

CBS Entertainment (which airs Charlie's sitcom, "Two and a Half Men") President, Nina Tassler, has expressed concern for Charlie.  She says,

“We have a high level of concern. How can we not?  Let me speak personally first . . . This man is a father, he has children, he has a family . . . Charlie is a professional. He comes to work, he does his job extremely well . . . On a personal level, we obviously have concern. On a professional level, he does his job and he does it well. This show is a hit.  That's all I have to say."
I guess that says it all!  Charlie has already inked a multi-million dollar deal to stay on the show for two more seasons.  "Two and a Half Men" is the most watched comedy in prime time. 

We all wish Charlie well.....

50 cent

50 Cent has started a new production company called "Mayweather Productions" and his partner is none other than, Floyd Mayweather, Jr.  According to, Fiddy will play a "behind-the-scenes" role in the company.  I guess acting is taking a back seat to producing for Fiddy.  His partner Floyd says,

"We're going to do what we normally do: sit in a room and brainstorm and try to come up with new ideas … you know, outside the box. Be creative and just work together and try to be positive. That's the main thing. It's about working hard, being positive and working together."

Good luck Fiddy!  We'll look forward to those movies!
