Elizabeth Vargas has checked into rehab for alcohol abuse! The co-anchor of ABC's 20/20, who has recently been absent from the news show, confirmed in a statement to PEOPLE that she is currently in treatment. Elizabeth Vargas said,"Like so many people, I am dealing with addiction. I realized I was becoming increasingly dependent on alcohol. And feel fortunate to have recognized it for the problem it was becoming. I am in treatment and am so thankful for the love and support of my family, friends and colleagues at ABC News. Like so many others, I will deal with this challenge one day at a time. If coming forward today gives one other person the courage to seek help, I’m grateful.” Good for her for recognizing that there’s a problem and attempting to get help!
Lady Gaga is out of this world! Seriously though! Lady Gaga will become the first artist to sing in outer space! Lady Gaga is set to blast off in a Virgin Galactic ship and belt out a single track during the Zero G Colony high-tech musical festival in New Mexico. She has to do a month of vocal training because of the atmosphere. Even Lady Gaga’s glam squad will be on the shuttle with her! Zero G Colony is a three-day hi-tech festival set to take place at Spaceport America in New Mexico. It features world-class entertainment and cutting-edge technology. So Lady Gaga performing in space makes sense. I’m being told that the performance will be like nothing the world has seen before. Lady Gaga has even taken out a ridiculous life insurance policy! HAHA!
Chris Hemsworth, like other actors, is used to going to extreme lengths to prepare for a movie role. Well, this one seems to take the top spot! During a stop on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Chris Hemsworth admitted that he's been on a crash diet for his next film, Heart of the Sea. Chris Hemsworth plays a sailor who is stranded at sea, so he had to get really skinny. To prepare? Chris Hemsworth is on a 500 or 600 calories a day diet! He’s taking drastic steps to completely transform his body. Chris Hemsworth said, "I had a cheat meal a couple of minutes ago so I'm in a good mood. I had a bit of pizza. Like 10 [slices], but that's just once a week and then you feel really guilty." TISK TISK! But in all fairness, Chris Hemsworth said “you can consume 600 calories in a milkshake. So it ends up being a couple of small salads, a couple of small pieces of protein and that's kind of it and you go to bed hungry! Then you have like a fasting period of 15 hours, like you stop eating completely, and then you have little meals through the day." NO THANK YOU!
Another day, more drama! Brooke Mueller has gone to child dependency court in Los Angeles in an effort to get custody of her twin sons with Charlie Sheen after their temporary guardian, Denise Richards, told child protective services that she could no longer care for the boys! Brooke Mueller and her lawyers are in court trying to convince the judge to give her custody back of the twins and she’s offering to be monitored 24/7! Her lawyers are going to argue that her sons, Bob and Max, are being thrust into the media spotlight because of the ongoing custody dispute with Charlie Sheen making outrageous comments about her as an individual, and as a mother. Also just yesterday I reported that Denise Richards said that the boys had “extreme violent mood swings,” and were violent towards her daughter and dogs! Brooke Mueller recently filed court documents alleging that Denise Richards was trying to turn the boys against her. If the judge doesn’t want to give the boys back to Brooke Mueller, she would want them to be with her mother! Can you imagine what these poor boys are going through?
Most of the time if you tell the police that you didn’t know that what you were doing was bad or illegal, they’d laugh at you! But will that be the case for Justin Bieber? That’s what he’s trying to say now that police are trying to contact him in connection with illegal graffiti in Brazil. Justin Bieber was photographed tagging up a Rio building and local police reportedly launched an investigation! They even went to Justin Bieber's rented mansion to question him, but he wasn’t there when the cops showed up. Putting graffiti on buildings is a crime in Brazil punishable by up to a year in jail, and thanks to these photos, police now have reason to believe that Justin Bieber is guilty. My sources are telling me that Justin Bieber is insisting that he was told by locals to tag the buildings and thought that it was okay. Why do that to a building anyway?
Looks like their marriage is just fine! Or is it? New pictures of Will Smith getting VERY close and partially nude with his young Focus costar Margot Robbie have sparked rumors that he’s been cheating on his wife of 16 years, Jada Pinkett Smith. BUT, my sources are telling me that everything is just fine in the Smith household and that Will Smith isn’t hooking up with his costar. The rumors started after Will Smith and Margot Robbie took advantage of a photo booth that was available to them during the film's wrap party. My sources are telling me that it was the last day of filming and everyone was taking pictures. They were just goofing around and there’s nothing more to it than that! So Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are great and their marriage apparently hasn’t been affected at all! Believe it? Or is it all a cover up?
Are Katy Perry and John Mayer headed down the aisle sometime in the near future? E! News is reporting that the two are definitely headed towards an engagement and that it’s inevitable! Katy Perry and John Mayer are apparently very serious and are so smitten with each other that friends and family wouldn't be the least bit surprised if John Mayer proposed! Everyone wants them to get engaged and John Mayer has reportedly been spotted ring shopping for her and Katy Perry has admitted that John Mayer was a long time crush of hers! So maybe it's only a matter of time before the two become husband and wife!
