About six weeks after he suffered a cardiac arrest and needed his fiancee – Omarosa Manigault – to revive him and get him to the hospital, actor Michael Clarke Duncan has passed away. He was 54.
Best known for his role in The Green Mile and most recently a series regular on Fox’s The Finder, Duncan reportedly died unexpectedly, though he was hospitalized at the time.
TMZ sources say Omarosa’s mother was at Duncan’s side, while the former Apprentice star herself simply left the room for a short while and returned to the horrible news.
While details are sketchy at the moment, the actor’sMore >
The Internet is run by cats. This is a scientific fact.
As such, it was really only a matter of time before all the cat videos online were honored in some officially-sanctioned capacity, and the first annual Cat Video Film Festival at Minneapolis’ Walker Art Center this week did just that.
More than 10,000 were on hand as Henri 2, Paw de Deux (below) was crowned the winner of the people’s choice award, a.k.a. The Golden Kitty!

The office of embattled Congressman Todd Akin (R-MO) is pretty furious with GOP activist and former White House Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove.
For joking that Akin should be bumped off, obviously.
Businessweek reports that Rove spoke about Akin – who is facing calls to drop his bid for Missouri’s U.S. Senate seat – at a GOP donors’ breakfast in Tampa.
The site says Rove quipped to the audience: “We should sink Todd Akin. If he’s found mysteriously murdered, don’t look for my whereabouts!”
Akin’s office issued a statement calling the quote “deeply disturbing,” given that the FBI isMore >
Sorry, Good Morning America. You’ve been scooped.
Following the announcement that Robert Pattinson had scheduled his first post-scandal interview with that ABC program, Comedy Central has now stepped in to make a correction:
The Twilight Saga stud will actually sit across from Jon Stewart on Monday’s edition of The Daily Show.
The appearance was booked far in advance, as part of Pattinson’s promotion of Cosmopolis, but given the nature of this comedic series, it’s hard not to wonder if Stewart won’t at least make some reference to another famous Stewart.

Will Ferrell is not the only person broken up by Kristen Stewart cheating on Robert Pattinson with Rupert Sanders.
Also really sad over the course of events? Robert Pattinson himself.
Reporter Carlos Greer tells People that the actor is “heartbroken and angry,” while sources spill to the magazine that “he’s been drinking and relying on friends to deal with the pain.”
Other outlets, meanwhile, report that Pattinson has returned to the most dangerous habit of all: smoking.

Jeremy Renner might not need any help with his performance in bed. But he might require assistance reading labels in the future.
Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, the actor told a story about how he once asked a friend for some sleep medication before a 10-hour flight from Los Angeles to London. An easy enough request, right? Not in this case.
“I take a little sleeping pill, pop it and realize nothing’s happening,” The Bourne Legacy star said. “But something else was happening.”
If you know what he means! Yes, folks, Renner was given Viagra instead of Ambien and the results kept aMore >
Robert Pattinson is yet to speak out regarding Kristen Stewart’s admitted affair with Rupert Sanders.
But although it wouldn’t be difficult to imagine the pain this actor is in regardless, he actually expressed his take on infidelity in the April edition of Italian Vanity Fair.
“There’s a thing I’ve never got, that is, why do people cheat?” Pattinson asked in the article. “I can understand the impulse, but not how you can keep two relationships going at the same time for long. This usually happens to people with children.”
Sanders, of course, does have two children. But Stewart claims herMore >

Hey, have you heard? Tom Cruise is single again.
In light of the actor’s divorce from Katie Holmes, and with many believing Scientology is to blame for the couple’s split, the National Enquirer quotes an expert on that religion who says Cruise will next marry somebody from within the church.
Specifically, Yolanda Pecoraro!
The actress is a “Scientology princess, perfect for Tom,” according to a tabloid source, who adds that Pecoraro has been taking Scientology courses since she was 13 years old.

Tom Cruise has finally had it with all the talk, chatter and innuendo.
A day after the actor spent quality time with daughter Suri in New York City, the star – through attorney Bert Fields – went off on Life & Style today for its latest cover story, which alleges Cruise has “abandoned” his child and left her “in tears.”
In regard to the assertion, Fields has sent an email that reads:
“That, as anyone knows who saw their photos together yesterday and today, is a disgusting, vicious lie. Until this week, Tom was shooting a film on location, but he spoke to Suri every day.
“He’s with SuriMore >

Tom Cruise’s attorney, Bert Fields, demands that the National Enquirer and its parent company, American Media, retract its new cover story about the actor’s just-settled divorce from Katie Holmes or face a defamation complaint of epic proportions.
Among other tawdry allegations, the magazine claims Cruise’s home was akin to a “house of horrors” and that his estranged wife, Holmes, lived a “tortured life” in a marriage that was a “living nightmare” in virtual lockdown for years.
Fields absolutely went OFF on what he said was a “disgraceful and lurid cover with bogus, red and yellowMore >
