Singer Billy Joel has cancelled his HarperCollins book deal for The Book Of Joel a memoir he planned to write for the publisher.
According to the publisher, the book was to be an “emotional ride” that would speak of Joel’s three failed marriages and his various substance abuse battles.
The book was scheduled for a June release and would have contained “never before revealed” details about Billy Joel.
Apparently Joel abruptly quit the book with no notice. Joel said of the cancellation:
“It took working on writing a book to make me realize that I’m not all that interested in talking about
Every Charlie Sheen interview and quote is more hilarious than the previous one, until we’re forced to remember: the guy is a father of five. He’s somehow been the primary parent of two-year old twins during the last few weeks of partying and ranting.
But that’s no longer the case. Hours after Brooke Mueller successfully filed a restraining order against her ex-husband, authorities arrived at Sheen’s house last night and took little Bob and Max into custody.
Charlie Sheen is now on Twitter, as evidenced by this photo of him and Rachel Oberlin, as well as this message: My sons are fine …More >
(HMG Celebrity News) – Well Charlie Sheen’s latest ex is back in the news and it gives me a recurring feeling that she is still a hot mess. Those two very young twins Brooke Mueller had with Charlie Sheen, are gonna be the likely losers in their parents individual battles with substance abuse. Nothing seems to have changed for Charlie, who allegedly was AWOL for some family Christmas parties last week, because he was out partying again. Brooke has been reportedly in and out of rehab and allegedly spent this past Thanksgiving eve in an L.A. hotel room partying before heading to a soberMore >
(HMG Celebrity News) – TMZ reports Charlie Sheen’s soon to be ex-wife Brooke Mueller had quite the Thanksgiving, spending the night before in an L.A. hotel room partying before heading to a sober living facility. No details on whether she voluntarily called for help after losing control, or was tracked down. I have said before I think Brooke is quite the hot mess. Charlie seems to love party girls and he and Brooke reportedly carried their baggage of substance abuse into their marriage and their young twin boys lives. Brooke who reportedly has addictions to alcohol and crack, seems toMore >
(HMG Celebrity News) – In light of her failing two recent drug tests a bench warrant was issued for Lindsay Lohan’s arrest, yesterday. The warrant is issued but on hold until Friday at 8:30 a.m. PST, when Lohan is due back in court, TMZ reports. She reportedly had cocaine and amphetamines in her system, just days after spending 2 weeks behind bars and 23 days in rehab. Lohan was convicted twice in 2007 of driving under the influence (DUI) and missed a court-mandated substance abuse counseling classes. That’s what prompted a judge to send her back to jail in the first place. On herMore >
[HMG Celebrity News] – When the news broke last month that Paris Hilton had been arrested for possessing cocaine most people said she’d find a way to duck out of the charges. And they were right.
The 29-year old socialite appeared in a Las Vegas courtroom this morning and pleaded guilty to possessing the drug and obstructing an officer, in return for which she got one year probation, a $2,000 fine, 200 hours of community service and must also complete a substance abuse program.
“You have been sentenced to one year in Clark County Detention Center,” Judge Joe Bonaventure told the defendant.More >
Following a series of scripted drunken outbursts, Scott Disick has entered therapy.
In his attempt to overcome a battle with substance abuse, the douchebag baby daddy of little Mason Dash is now receiving support from an unlikely source: Kris Jenner.
Said Scott’s most vocal critic (while, of course, doing publicity for season five of Keeping Up with the Kardashians): “I think that Scott has really come a long way. My main concern is for my daughter Kourtney and my grandson Mason, and I think Scott had some issues he was really grappling with and has come around.”
Jenner even told E! NewsMore >
(HMG) – As we mentioned earlier today, Lindsay Lohan has hired O. J. Simpson trial lawyer Robert Shapiro, who has a new plan to keep her out of jail. According to TMZ sources Shapiro is not planning to appealing Lindsay’s upcoming prison sentence, which could be used as a stall tactic to keep her out of jail for months. Instead Shapiro, will reportedly be asking Judge Marsha Revel to put Lohan in a very specific rehab facility to reduce, or possibly eliminate, her jail time. And now it looks the plan is already in motion as Lohan has apparently already chosen to check into a “soberMore >
(HMG) – Mötley Crüe frontman Vince Neil has apparently slipped off the wagon again. TMZ reports, Neil was stopped early this morning in Las Vegas by police who arrested him on suspicion of driving drunk. Neil is in custody at the Clark County Jail with bail set at $2K. Neil has had a few brushes with the law in the past and has been through years of substance abuse issues. What’s most distressing though about Neil allegedly getting back in a car drunk is that he doesn’t seem to have learned from his past. In 1984, Neil and drummer Nicholas “Razzle” Dingley of the Finnish hard rock bandMore >
(HMG) – The answer to that question is probably yes, but going on a TV show to try to deal with it, seems ironic. Anyway, I wouldn’t be surprised at all if Tila Tequila has a substance abuse issue, given those frequent meltdowns she video taped herself. Since the domestic incident with pro football player Shawne Merriman, Tila’s life just seemed to further disentigrate into bizarre rants, claims she was pregnant and an engagement with the now deceased Casey Johnson that made you want to demand they both put the proverbial beer goggles and crack pipe down. Well TMZ is reporting thatMore >
