Author James Frey is returning to the scene of his public evisceration by Oprah Winfrey five years ago. The rematch will be one of O’s final episodes.
Frey was simply CRUSHED by Oprah in 2006 when she found out he made up a ton of details in his hugely popular memoir, A Million Little Pieces.
According to reports, Frey will return to the show and will talk with Oprah about how his life was affected by the scandal over the past five years.
No word on when Frey’s episode is scheduled to run.
Oprah taking Frey to task earned some of her biggest ratings in history, and clearly did not makeMore >
Billy Ray Cyrus appeared on Good Morning America yesterday and somehow resisted the urge to throw a chair through a window following his sit-down with Robin Roberts.
After coming across as loonier than Tila Tequila in an earlier interview with GQ, we need to give Billy Ray props for standing up and taking responsibility this time around.
Referring to his messy marriage (now on the mend), Billy Ray says he was “surrounded in darkness” when he claimed Satan was attacking his family. Now, after re-assessing his diatribe, Billy Ray explained his point in clearer terms:
“Fame can be aMore >
Rejected by Brad Womack, 26-year-old Ashley Hebert has been confirmed as the next Bachelorette, with her season set to kick off Monday, May 23.
As the third-place finisher on The Bachelor (Brad chose Emily Maynard over Chantal O’Brien on the finale), Ashley is certainly a worthy candidate.
We grew familiar with the cutie over the past few months, but now that she’s about to call the shots, here are some things to know about her …
She’s a fourth-year grad student at the University of Pennsylvania, who will return to school after The Bachelorette and finish dental school this fall.
Tennis champion Serena Williams has been hospitalized in L.A. with a pulmonary embolism, a blood clot in the lungs. She suffered the health scare Monday.
Williams looked stunning at Sunday’s Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party just hours before the unexpected condition surfaced.
Serena had been spotted at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. several times over the past week regarding the conditioned, but it worsened this week.
“Serena Williams underwent emergency treatment at Cedars for a hematoma she suffered as a result of treatment for a more critical situation,” herMore >
Charlie Sheen may be granting time to every media outlet in the country (Chuck, call us!), but there’s one person the crazed actor won’t be speaking to:
Brooke Mueller. She has been granted a restraining order, TMZ reports. Los Angeles Superior Court has banned the star from going within 100 yards away of his ex-wife. He also cannot have any contact with her.
Why the sudden filing, considering Mueller was just on vacation with Sheen, Bree Olson and Natalie Kenley in the Bahamas? She claims the drug aficionado threatened her several times over the past couple days.
Sheen isn’t too brokenMore >
Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky, who got married just last summer, have been the subjects of some unsettling rumors over the past week.
But the newlyweds say there’s no trouble in their marriage.
Despite reports suggesting that there may be serious issues between the couple, a friend of the family reports, “The happy couple are happy.”
Adds the friend: “Any report suggesting there is trouble in the marriage is absolutely false.” Why all of the speculation to the contrary then?
Possibly because Mezvinsky, an investment banker who had been working for the Manhattan financial firm G3More >
Heidi Montag was reportedly offered a spot on Dancing With the Stars in ’08 and again this season, but was forced to turn it down each time for different reasons.
First, contractual agreements she made when she signed up for The Hills barred her from busting a move anywhere other than on Spencer Pratt-directed videos.
Now, the 24-year-old former reality TV star is effectively unable to cut a rug thanks to all the cutting she endured over the past few years. Her body’s a mess.
At least she has her true love. [Photo: Pacific Coast News]

In between bong smoking and trying on an edgy persona, Miley Cyrus filmed a season of Hannah Montana over the past few months.
Tragically, though, it comes to an end this Sunday night, as Miley’s alter ego must decide what future she wants: that of a college student or a movie star?
Which will she decide?!? The suspense is killing us, but fortunately we can watch the following trailer over and over in order to try to figure out the answer. You can, too…

KISS bassist Gene Simmons is being targeted by hackers after the rock star said musicians should use legal remedies to fend off illegally downloaded music.
Both SimmonsRecords.com and GeneSimmons.com were targeted over the past weekend by a group that was angry he had stepped behind musicians instead of people who steal music owned by artists and their record companies.
Simmons had told the Telegraph:
“Be litigious. Sue everybody. Take their homes, their cars. Don’t let anybody cross that line.”
Perhaps the words used by Gene were a little overboard, but his point remains, illegallyMore >
The Hillstrands are being sued by Discovery Channel for $3 million, claiming that they failed to show up for a spinoff of Deadliest Catch called The Hillstrands. That lawsuit, which could cost the family their boat and crew has led to three captains leaving the show.
The Hillstrands told The Hollywood Reporter that they were unable to continue on the show because of current litigation.
“We have been through a lot over the past year and unfortunately given the current situation with Discovery we are unable to continue participating in Deadliest Catch.”

(HMG) – I thought Drew Carey, 52, looked a bit slimmed down a few months ago, but that was nothing. I noticed his photo today (above left, the one on right is from January 2010), as The Price Is Right frontman showed up last night’s CBS-CW Showtime Press Tour Party, and was checking as to why he is now so slim.
The Cleveland native who was hugely popular in his self-disparaging sitcom, The Drew Carey Show, has lost 70 pounds over the past year, he claims by old-fashioned diet and exercise. Of course the National Enquirer has a different theory, claiming back in May, that Carey underwent aMore >
Yesterday, we reported that Brock Kelly was likely dating Ashley Greene.
This news didn’t seem to stir up the emotions of Twilight Saga fans, but we have a feeling the following romance rumor will:
Life & Style reports that Taylor Lautner is back together with his high school sweetheart, Sarah Hicks. The couple reunited briefly last year and “are definitely back on,” an insider claims. “She’s absolutely gorgeous, and Taylor has always had a thing for her.”
In related news, sales of Sarah Hicks voodoo dolls have sky-rocketed in the last hour.
Over the past few months, Lautner has beenMore >
Kim Kardashian is taking revenge on Reggie Bush… again!
In a sign that tabloids are officially out of topics on which to report, Life & Style has run the SAME EXACT COVER STORY this week as it ran in mid-April.
Once more, the magazine is touting Kim’s bikini body, as if it’s something to aspire to and not something she accomplished by downing a dangerous diet supplement and then sitting on the toilet for days on end.
We’d tell the publication to cover some other facet of Kardashian’s life, but let’s face it: Is there anything remotely interesting about this large-breasted celebrity exceptMore >
Ready to enter an alternate universe?
Given the extreme makeover Miley Cyrus has undergone over the past couple months, it’s jarring to remember that she still plays Hannah Montana on television.
In fact, that show will air the first episode of its final season tomorrow night. It finds the Stewarts moving into a new ranch home and we’ve posted a sneak peek at the premiere below.
Miley is front and center, but there are no same-sex kisses, no gyrating of the crotch and no torn-up, low-cut, ridiculous outfits to be seen…Hannah Montana Clip
Cyrus has gone out of her way to say she wants toMore >
