Ted Kaczynski, better known as the Unabomber, recently updated his Harvard alumni class notes, listing his “occupation” and “awards” in a morbidly amusing submission.
In the Harvard alumni magazine, the Class of 1962 shares tales of helping inner city kids, serving on the federal bench, summering in Normandy and so on.
It’s a fairly distinguished, upstanding crew. Except for Ted, who just started his 15th year at the federal maximum security prison in Florence, Colo.
Before he was the “Unabomber,” who was sentenced in May 1998 to eight life sentences for killing three people and injuringMore >
Amanda Bynes has agreed to lay low after her agent and manager ordered her to stop being a fixture of the Hollywood nightlife scene. Is a trip to rehab next?
She was then involved in another traffic incident last week. As she keeps on partying (and some say crashing), friends are urging the star to go to rehab.
“Amanda has been in a downward spiral for six months. Even though her dad publicly said she doesn’t drink he knows she has aMore >
Brittany Kerr, a cheerleader for the NBA’s Charlotte Bobcats and now a contestant on American Idol, probably can’t challenge Phillip Phillips on talent alone.
She does bring other attributes to the table, however.
A massive surge in traffic from peeps looking for Brittany Kerr bikini photos crashed her manager’s website the following day, according to reports.
Not only that, she’s on her way to Hollywood! J.Lo wasn’t impressed with her audition (below), but Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson sent her through.
Big surprise. No word if she’ll don a two-piece in the next round …More >
Michael Showers, an actor who had a recurring role as police Capt. John Guidry on the HBO drama Treme, was found dead in the Mississippi River this morning.
He was 45.
A steamboat captain spotted him at around 11:15 a.m. in waters near New Orleans’ French Quarter. Harbor Police recovered the body about 30 minutes later.
An autopsy will be performed to determine cause of death, but the chief investigator estimated that Showers’ body had been in the water for two days.
The Times-Picayune identified Showers as being from Chalmette, a town in southeast Louisiana situated on the east bank ofMore >
Bar employees may have claimed Hines Ward looked nice and sober late Friday night, but looks can be deceiving.
Police have released their findings of the traffic stop that took place in Georgia, with officers saying they detected a “strong odor” of alcohol on the Pittsburgh wide receiver when he opened the door. Ward subsequently blew a .128 on the field sobriety test before being taken into custody.
The legal limit is .08.
Ward told the cops he had only drank two Coronas on the evening and was not impaired.
But the arresting officer says the DWTS victor had a difficult time keeping hisMore >
(HMG Celebrity News) – Famed director Steven Soderbergh, who won the best directing Oscar in 2000 for Traffic, has been slapped with a paternity suit in Manhattan Supreme Court naming him as the father of a five-month-old Australian girl.
The filing says Frances Lawrencina Anderson “had sexual intercourse” with the married Oscar-winning filmmaker “on many occasions covering a period of time was in Sydney at the time when Soderbergh directed a play he wrote called “Tot Mom,”covering all possible dates of conception, including but not limited to December 2009.” Anderson’s suit said she gaveMore >
Our apologies to Holly Madison.
On Friday, we asked readers which premiere they were more likely to tune in for tonight: True Blood or Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami. Somehow, we forgot to include E!’s latest reality show in this discussion, Holly’s World.
It debuts this evening and stars Holly Madison, who says she’s single and would love to someday raise a child in Las Vegas.
“I would much rather raise a family in Las Vegas than in L.A. First of all, when you live in Vegas, it’s very much like a small town with a really strong sense of community. And, Vegas is really strict. You can’t getMore >
Yay, my favorite freckle-faced former redhead, Lindsay Lohan, always finds away to stay in the news so no one will forget her. She now has a 36 year-old “cougar” lesbian lover, as PopEater puts it, who is a photog and what’s her name, Indrani Pal-Chaudhuri, suggests she’s East Indian. Given LiLo’s facial features have been transforming into something very Bollywood, I’m not surprised.
But wait, is LiLo’s new pal, Pal-Chaudhuri, paparazzi? No, she’s a reality show star, a Princeton graduate, and not a party girl. So what happened to the man whose arm she was on about Cannes? But LiLo told USMore >
Shia LaBeouf is a fool, making negative comments about two recent films he’s been in: namely Transformers 2 and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. His comments disparaged both films in a way that suggests he’s gotten an inflated head. Hey Shia, do you know Katherine Heigl, another notorious motormouth who didn’t know when to shut up a couple of years ago, and put down some of the projects she was with, including Gray’s Anatomy?
Lindsay Lohan may think she’s okay as far as her traffic/ alcohol education classes, but apparently she’s been falling down in Cannes — claimingMore >
From the pseudo-real headlines of the celebrity blogosphere today, you’d think that it was Lindsay Lohan underwent brain surgery, not Barbara Walters. Oh no, wait, that was heart valve surgery. Anyway, Lindsay’s progress is very good right now, thank you very much. So you can stop worrying about her. She doesn’t need a brain transplant.
LA Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel confirmed LiLo is progressing in her alcohol education program. Good on you, Lindsay. Maybe now when you party, you can control yourself. If you can’t, give me a call and I’ll set you straight. I’ll even drive you aroundMore >
