Sean Kingston Critical After Crash



MIAMI (AP) -- Authorities say rapper Sean Kingston is hospitalized after a crashing a personal watercraft into a Miami Beach bridge.
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokesman Jorge Pino says Kingston and a female passenger were injured when the watercraft hit the Palm Island Bridge around 6 p.m. Sunday. Pino says both were hospitalized early Monday at Ryder Trauma Center, but he didn't know their conditions.
According to TMZ, Kingston is in critical condition.
Pino says authorities are investigating the crash, and "nothing at this point would indicate that alcohol played a role."
A representative for his label Epic Records confirmed early Monday that Kingston was in a crash and "was now stabilized." No further information was provided.
Kingston rose to fame with his 2007 hit "Beautiful Girls" and was also featured on songs by artists including Justin Bieber.

Finally, a close up of Kim Kardashian's new bling.

The reality star and her basketball playing fiance revealed yesterday, that they were going to tie the knot -- the proposal took place nearly a week earlier. The quick romance should have been the topic of conversation, but Kardashian's 20.5 carat emerald cut diamond ring soon became the center of attention. It has been reported that the ring costs $2 million.

The pair were preparing to depart from LAX yesterday when paparazzi snapped photos of the couple going through security. Now that the cat is out of the bag, Kardashian can show off her enormous ring for the world to see.

Check out more shots as the future Mr. and Mrs. Humphries head through the airport, but more importantly, her bling here.

Steven Tyler on 'American Idol': 'The Show Sucks'


Steven Tyler on 'American Idol': 'The Show Sucks'


While America will have to wait until tonight to see who is crowned their next 'American Idol,' judge, Steven Tyler, seems to have already made up his mind about the competition.

"I never wanted to do 'American Idol,'" he told E! Online after last night's live show. "I turned around and said, 'The show sucks. How can kids be [an] American idol? They haven't played clubs, they haven't paid their dues, they haven't done what we did.'"

But Tyler seems to be singing a different tune now that's he's had a full season behind the judge's table.

"I was wrong. They are out there, we just have to wade through a bunch of them."

And wade through thousands of hopefuls alongside Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson, he did. But Tyler reasons that it was all worth it to find his golden girl, finalist Lauren Aliana.

"She doesn't even try to hit the notes, the words just go to that place," he said. "Everybody else is trying to hit the notes, and she's never had that problem with pitch ... She's been perfect and right and great. I circled her months ago and said 'American Idol.'"

But Aliana may have to put in a little effort to hit those high notes in tonight's performance -- she recently injured her vocal chords during a rehearsal.

Do you think Tyler has the next 'American Idol' pinpointed or do you think Scotty McCreery still has a chance at the title?

Kevin Federline is Voted Most Fit Man Alive.. ( Not)


Kevin Federline Packs on the Pregnancy Pounds 


Kevin Federline and his very pregnant girlfriend, Victoria Prince, headed out to the ball field Monday and we can't help but notice how these two are starting to look a little, err, shall we say ... similar?

Prince and Federline announced they were bringing the fifth Federline into the world back in March and it seems the pair have been collectively eating for two.

Once an uber-fit dancer, Federline packed on the post-marriage pounds after his split with ex-wife Britney Spears and begrudgingly became known as 'K-Fat.' He joined the 7th season of 'Celebrity Fit Club' and dropped back down to the slimmer K-Fed that exploded onto the scene as the man who married, and impregnated the famed pop star.

Federline was tipping the scales at 232 lbs. when he started 'Fit Club' and was quoted as saying, "I look like a pregnant man right now." He had one of the most notable and successful transformations that season, but it looks like the father of five has ballooned back up.

Federline spends his time coaching son Sean's baseball team, where the family was photographed here. On occasion, Spears has even been spotted sitting in the stands with beau Jason Trawick.

Prince is due with their new baby girl this summer, rounding out Federline's baby total to 5

Arnold Could Be the Next $200M less Man

Arnold Schwarzenegger Could Face $200 Million Divorce
By Kelly Fisher

If Maria Shriver decides to file for divorce from Arnold Schwarzenegger, the payout could put Tiger Woods' $110 million divorce to shame. According to Page Six, the couple's net worth has been placed between $200 million and $400 million, which means should Shriver cut legal ties with her husband of 25 years, she could take over $200 million with her.

Though it's believed the power couple has some sort of prenup in place, the longevity of their marriage and Schwarzenegger's infidelity is likely to trump the relevance of the document in court.

Schwarzenegger and Shriver announced their separation earlier this month, and last week news broke that the former California governor had fathered a child with the couple's former maid and assistant.

Other claims that Schwarzenegger has fathered more than one children with different women have also been making the rounds, most audibly from former 'Bond' girl Jane Seymour, who believes "there will be lots of information coming people's way" in the near future.

"I heard about two more [out of wedlock kids] somebody else knows about," Seymour said in a CNN interview. "I even met someone who knows him well."

Like many in Hollywood, Seymour wasn't the least bit surprised by the news of Schwarzenegger's epic philandering. "I was not even remotely surprised," she said. "The moment I heard it, that there was an announcement of their separation -- he was obviously jumping the gun before everyone else told the world of the news."

Though they are separated, Shriver has yet to file for divorce from Schwarzenegger. However, it is believed she has hired top Hollywood divorce lawyer Laura Wasser should she decide to proceed with a divorce.

Sean 'Diddy' Combs changes his name...again

Sean 'Diddy' Combs changes his name...again


How many names can one man have?
Rapper/entrepreneur/actor/whatever else he wants to be Sean Combs started in the game as Puff Daddy before becoming known as Puffy, Puff, P. Diddy and finally, Diddy. Now, for one week, he wants to be known as "Swag."
For those who have been hiding under a hip-hop culture rock for the past few years, "swag" is short for "swagger" and according to the Urban Dictionary is defined as "How one presents him or her self to the world."
Swag announced the change via his official Twitter account and even set up anew Twitter account to reflect the temporary name change.
"I decided that I’m gonna change my name for a week in honor of my comeback," he said on a video he released. "I’ve gone as Puff, Puffy, Puff Daddy, P. Diddy, Diddy, King Combs – my real name is Sean Combs – and for a week, this week only, you can call me by my new name, Swag.”

Jackie Kennedy’s love (letters) has a price: $134,500

Jackie Kennedy’s love (letters) has a price: $134,500
By Melissa Bell



A “French lady”(that’s all the description auctioneer Christie’s is willing to give) paid more than $130,000 for 22 letters written by Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis at an auction Thursday morning.

The letters were not to the former first lady’s husband no. 1, President John F. Kennedy, or husband no. 2, oil magnate Aristotle Onassis. They were written to her boyfriend R. Beverley Corbin Jr.

The teenage Onassis wrote the letters in the 1940s to then-Harvard student Corbin while at her finishing school, a place she described as a “prison,” the Christie’s auction lot described.

“If school days are the happiest of your life, I’m hanging myself with my skip-rope tonight,” one letter reads.

The letters passed by descent to the seller, who CNN said was Corbin’s son. Corbin died in 2004.

I’m pretty sure I would never, ever want anything I wrote — especially love letters at the age of 17 — to be revealed to the world at large, but Onassis comes across as strong-willed and amusing. Some choice excerpts:

“I'm never going to send my children to boarding school. The boys can go to P.S. 148 with gangsters, and then go to Columbia & the girls can go to Hunter College and they'll all be morons but at least they wont have to tear around and get their teeth knocked out playing hockey every day... Can you think of anything worse than living in a small town like this all your life and competing to see which housewife could bake the best cake?” (Onassis did not get her wish: Her daughter, Caroline Kennedy, graduated from Concord Academy. Son John F. Kennedy Jr. attended boarding school at Phillips Academy).

She tells Corbin in one letter to smuggle in cigarettes, chocolate “and a hip flask to shock Mrs. J.”

She also did not mince words:

”I've always thought of being in love as being willing to do anything for the other person — starve to buy them bread and not mind living in Siberia with them — and I've always thought that every minute away from them would be hell — so looking at it that [way] I guess I'm not in love with you.”

The last letter announced her (short-lived) engagement to John Husted:

“What I hope for you is for the same thing to happen as quickly and as surely as it did with me. It will when you least expect it.”

Kim Cattrall Enjoying Freedom From 'Sex and the City'


Kim Cattrall Enjoying Freedom From 'Sex and the City'


Kim Cattrall may have made her name on the hit HBO show 'Sex and the City,' but right now the actress is enjoying life without any strings attached to the series and movies.

"I'm having such a good time being footloose and fancy free and not having to check in and say, 'Is it OK if I do this or do that?'" she told E! Online. "There's no mom and pop standing over me. I enjoy that.

Cattrall played Samantha Jones on the series from 1998 to 2004, and in two movies in 2008 and 2010.

But what about those rumors of a possible third 'SATC' movie in the works? Cattrall said she hasn't heard much.

"I have no idea," she said "I hear more prequel than sequel."

Earlier this week, Sarah Jessica Parker talked about a possible third installment of 'SATC,' saying she thinks it could happen.

"I think there is perhaps one more small, important story to tell," Parker told MTV News. "Whether or not we choose to do that and when we choose to do that remains, obviously, the unknown, but it's nice to ponder."

But until any decisions are made, Cattrall is enjoying life without 'Sex,' but don't think she's not having fun in the romance department.

"I'm dating, getting out there," Cattrall said. "It's scary but also it's exciting. It's both of those things. It's a tight rope, you know? It's feeling like you're 14 again, which you kind of like when you're 54."

Mother Of Schwarzenegger's Love Child Revealed

Mother Of Schwarzenegger's Love Child Revealed:  Mildred Patricia Baena
By Ashley Reich

Mildred Patricia Baena, 50, has been identified as the mother of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s love child,RadarOnline.com reported Tuesday night.
Baena, who goes by Patty, was a housekeeper for the Schwarzenegger family for 20 years before retiring in January.
According to TMZ, the former housekeeper--who lives several hours outside of Los Angeles with Schwarzenegger’s son and her three other children--began to "pursue Arnold" in the late 1990s. She reportedly told friends that she and Schwarzenegger had unprotected sex during the day at his house, though she didn't tell him that he was the father of her child until the boy was a toddler.
Schwarzenegger announced Monday night that he had fathered a child with a household staffer over a decade ago, before he was elected as California governor.
"After leaving the governor's office I told my wife about this event, which occurred over a decade ago," he said in a statement issued to the Los Angeles Times. "I understand and deserve the feelings of anger and disappointment among my friends and family. There are no excuses and I take full responsibility for the hurt I have caused. I have apologized to Maria, my children and my family."
When questioned by the paper Monday before Schwarzenegger issued his statement, the former household staffer--now revealed to be Baena--said another man was the child's father. She declined to comment after the Los Angeles Times notified her of Schwarzenegger's statement.
Shriver, who--with Schwarzenegger--announced the couple's separation after 25 years of marriage on May 9, issued a statement Tuesday responding to the revelation.
"This is a painful and heartbreaking time," Shriver said. "As a mother, my concern is for the children. I ask for compassion, respect and privacy as my children and I try to rebuild our lives and heal. I will have no further comment."

Arnold Makes Shocking Revelation as the Fallen Gladiator



Arnold Schwarzenegger Fathered A Child With Member Of Household Staff

LOS ANGELES — Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has acknowledged that he fathered a child with a member of his household staff, a revelation that apparently prompted wife Maria Shriver to leave the couple's home before they announced their separation last week.
Schwarzenegger and Shriver jointly announced May 9 that they were splitting up after 25 years of marriage. Yet, Shriver moved out of the family's Brentwood mansion earlier in the year after Schwarzenegger acknowledged the child is his, The Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday.
"After leaving the governor's office I told my wife about this event, which occurred over a decade ago," Schwarzenegger told the Times in a statement that also was sent to The Associated Press early Tuesday. "I understand and deserve the feelings of anger and disappointment among my friends and family. There are no excuses and I take full responsibility for the hurt I have caused. I have apologized to Maria, my children and my family. I am truly sorry.
"I ask that the media respect my wife and children through this extremely difficult time," the statement concluded. "While I deserve your attention and criticism, my family does not."
Schwarzenegger's representatives did not comment further. A spokesman for the former first lady told the Times she had no comment.
The Times did not publish the former staffer's name nor that of her child but said the woman worked for the family for 20 years and retired in January.
In an interview Monday before Schwarzenegger issued his statement, the former staffer said another man – her husband at the time – was the child's father. When the Times later informed the woman of the governor's statement, she declined to comment further.
The child was born before Schwarzenegger began his seven-year stint in public office.
Shriver stood by her husband during his 2003 gubernatorial campaign after the Los Angeles Times reported accusations that he had a history of groping women. Schwarzenegger later said he "behaved badly sometimes."
In his first public comments since the couple announced their breakup, Schwarzenegger said last week that he and Shriver "both love each other very much."
"We are very fortunate that we have four extraordinary children and we're taking one day at a time," he said at a Los Angeles event marking Israeli independence. Their children range in age from 13 to 21.
Since his term as California governor ended in early January, Schwarzenegger, 63, has hopscotched around the world, his wife nowhere in sight. While the "Terminator" star appeared confident about the future since exiting politics, cutting movie deals and fashioning himself as a global spokesman for green energy, Shriver, known for her confidence, seemed unsettled.
Shriver, 55, maintained her own identity when her husband entered politics, though she gave up her job at NBC. Their union was often tested in Sacramento, where the former action star contended with a rough seven years of legislative gridlock, a budget crisis and lingering questions about his fidelity.

Don Lemon Comes Out; CNN Anchor Calls Himself a 'Double Minority'


Don Lemon Comes Out; CNN Anchor Calls Himself a 'Double Minority'

In September of last year, Don Lemon made the extraordinary admission on live TV that he was victimized by a pedophile as a child. Months later, the CNN anchor is releasing a book that carries on that spirit of openness by speaking publicly for the first time about his being gay and what that means for an African-American man.

"I'm scared," he told The New York Times on Sunday. "I'm talking about something that people might shun me for, ostracize me for."

Lemon, 45, told the Times that "it's about the worst thing you can be in black culture" to be a gay male. "You're taught you have to be a man; you have to be masculine. In the black community, they think you can pray the gay away. I guess this makes me a double minority now."

The journo's colleagues at CNN have been aware of his sexuality for years, but Lemon decided while writing his book, 'Transparent,' that he was going to go all in and embrace the truth.

"I abhor hypocrisy," he said. "I think if you're going to be in the business of news, and telling people the truth, of trying to shed light in dark places, then you've got to be honest. You've got to have the same rules for yourself as you do for everyone else."

Lemon also acknowledged that people are going to tie his victimization as a child to being gay. "People are going to say: 'Oh, he was molested as a kid and now he is coming out.' I get it," he said.

'Transparent' has been dedicated to Tyler Clementis, the Rutgers student who committed suicide after his roommate secretly used a webcam to broadcast his sexual encounter with another man.

He also noted that in a perfect world it would be ideal if all the closed TV news personalities would publicly acknowledge being gay, but he knows better than anyone that you need to go at your own speed.

"I think it would be great if everybody could be out," he said. "But it's such a personal choice. People have to do it at their own speed. I respect that. I do have to say that the more people who come out, the better it is for everyone, certainly for the Tyler Clementis of the world."

Was Mariah Carey Reported for Drinking in the Hospital?


Was Mariah Carey Reported for Drinking in the Hospital?


All new parents have their hands full, but Mariah Carey and husband Nick Cannon also dealt with a very unexpected visitor in the hospital where their daughter and son, Monroe and Moroccan, were born April 30.

"Child Protective Services actually came to me," Cannon told Piers Morgan on CNN Thursday, "And said that they were here to see me because there had been allegations that there was drug and alcohol use during the stay in the hospital."

But it's hardly as scandalous as it sounds: Cannon believes someone involved in Carey's care was overheard discussing a beer that allegedly boosts breastmilk production. Many moms of twins receive lactation tips specific to the challenges of feeding two newborns, but most can probably count on more privacy than Mariah Carey.

"It all started when a nurse suggested to my wife that if you drink Guinness, the dark beer, the yeast improves breastfeeding," Cannon added. "I don't know if someone heard that [and] were saying my wife was drinking beer. People will do anything to try to conjure up a story."

Cannon's theory is that a mundane conversation became a wild rumor only because of the new mom's celebrity. According to Us, he said the rep responding to information about alcohol in the patients' room understood the circumstances and agreed the allegation was ridiculous.

"To even have to deal with that, with my wife in the state that she's in while we're in the hospital, to even have to think about someone possibly wanting to investigate your children," Cannon said. "It's sad at the end of the day...when you think about people trying to make a buck off newborn babies."

Guinness beer tips aside, nursing twins is serious business for some moms, as 'Modern Family' starJulie Bowen proudly explained during a chat with George Lopez last year. On the other hand, twin mom Jennifer Lopez caused a mini-scandal in the parenting blogosphere when she confidently told People magazine she was forgoing breastfeeding altogether.

Terrible Example for Young People: Lady Gaga


Terrible Example for Young People: Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga Wears Penis Shoes On 'American Idol


Lady Gaga pulled a fast one on "American Idol" producers this week, wearing a pair of booties with, well, Lucite male members for heels that made it onto viewers' screens.
Various media outlets (who probably couldn't sit through the clip) reported that GaGaloo's phallic footwear was covered up by an "Idol" logo, however, here at HuffPost Style, we powered through the entire segment -- not necessarily something we're proud of -- and you can see her see-through shafts around the 4:38 mark.
So, what's the deal with Gaga's latest style statement? They're made by Void of Course and reportedly ring in around $4,500.

Jesse James: 'I should have left her'

Jesse James: 'I should have left her'
By Katie McLaughlin


CNN -- "I should have did the honorable thing," Jesse James tells CNN's Piers Morgan. "I should have left her, you know? If I wanted to screw around, I should have, you know, ended it."

The TV personality and West Coast Choppers CEO discusses the breakup of his marriage to Sandra Bullock, his new fiancée Kat Von D, his new book, "American Outlaw," and more on Friday's "Piers Morgan Tonight."

"I'm 100% to blame," continues James. "I take full accountability for my actions, you know? No one was holding a gun to my head to do what I did."

Morgan tells James that the only time he ever met Bullock was at the Oscars last year, and she said, referring to James, "I wake up every day, and I remind myself how lucky I am to have him."

Then, Morgan says, "within four days it was all over." James says that while he wouldn't go back and change things, he is partially glad that it happened because he is "a firm believer that things happen in life to teach us a lesson."

"I'm not happy that I hurt her, and hurt so many people around her," James adds. "I would never want to put anybody through that again."

Morgan asks James to recall the moment he confessed to Bullockthat he had been unfaithful. The conversation is revealed in the book, in which James says he admitted the affair, but told Bullock that he never cared for the woman he had the affair with. However, when Bullock asked why he'd done it, James had no answer.

"It's tough to tell them something when you know when you tell them you're never going to see them again," James tells Morgan.

James admits that he and Bullock no longer speak.

James opens up to Morgan about growing up in Riverside and Long Beach, California, with a father who beat him. When Morgan asksJames if he thinks his father should have apologized, James says, "I don't think so. I think I'm cool with it. You know, it's kind of the dichotomy of me. It's made me who I am, you know? Made me strong; made me never do that to my kids."

James also describes how he came very close to being recruited to a top college on a football scholarship, but an armed robbery sent him to jail for 90 days during his senior year of high school, dashing any hopes of an NFL career.

"I clinged to the wrong friends, and the wrong crowd," says James. "On the football field I was like the disciplined soldier. I would kill for my coaches and do everything perfect -- every drill, every practice, everything. I'd be the first one there, and the last one to leave. But as soon as football season ended, I didn't have any structure. So I would just get in trouble."

Soon after, James began working security at concerts. He tells an anecdote about doing security for the rap group Public Enemy. His job was to make sure Flava Flav did not buy crack cocaine.

"They had me like drive around and follow him," recalls James, "and make sure he didn't buy crack from anyone in L.A. For a week."

Spending time on the road with bands in the late 1980s and early 1990s in Europe sparked James' lifelong passion for motorcycles. He began building bikes whenever he wasn't with a concert tour and was eventually able to earn a living building high-end custom bikes at his shop, West Coast Choppers. The shop led to his becoming a TV host, which is how he met Bullock. The actress had arranged for her godson to meet James because the boy was a West Coast Choppers fan.

James tells Morgan that he wrote "American Outlaw" because he wants to tell his story, despite the fact that a lot of people "think I should just hide forever." He says that while he understands why so many people despise him for what he did to Bullock, he no longer cares. "I can be the villain," says James. "And she'll always be America's sweetheart."

"I don't think Sandy and I were ever really friends," says James, who is now engaged to tattoo artist Kat Von D. He says that he and Von D have "a deeper understanding" of each other.

"Kat and I seem to be connected on, like, such a higher level," says James. "I've never had someone like have my back 100%, you know?"

At that point, Morgan brings up Bullock's Golden Globes acceptance speech, in which the actress said to her then-husband, James: "There's no surprise that my work got better when I met you, because I never knew what it felt like for someone to have my back."

James quickly counters, claiming Bullock "said that same speech at four different award shows."

When Morgan asks if James is accusing Bullock of being insincere, James asks Morgan what Bullock does for a living.

"Movie stuff," answers Morgan.

"Yes, what?" asks James.

"An actor," replies Morgan.

"Oh, OK, cool," James retorts.

When Morgan asks James if he thinks it was an act, James says, in reference to Hollywood, "I think you know, that whole -- that, you know, people that have to live in that world."

Morgan asks James if he's glad to be out of "that world," to which James replies, "100%."

"It's just pretend," continues James. "It's not real. I'm, like, the guy that goes to a shop. And I don't hang out in the office. I go to the back of the shop, and hang out with the guys that are all greasy, dirty. And that's -- that's where I belong."
