Speaking of future wedding bells, did Avril Lavigne marry Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger on Saturday in France?

It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Eminem. So, what is he up to? In a new documentary How to Make Money Selling Drugs, Eminem is opening up about his scary drug abuse, revealing that he almost died during one overdose. The rapper, who entered rehab for sleeping pill addiction in 2005 and addressed the problem in his 2010 album Recovery, has admitted in the past to taking 10 to 20 Vicodin (painkiller) pills daily. Eminem said, "My bottom was going to be death. I don't know what point exactly it started to be a problem, I just remember liking it more and more.” If friends tried to tell him to get help, Eminem says, "I would say, 'Get that person outta here, they don't know nothing about my life. I literally thought I could control it." His scary brush with death when he was hospitalized following an overdose. Had he got to the hospital about two hours later, he would have died. His organs were shutting down. They didn’t think he was going to make it." Glad to see he made it through!
Paula Deen just can't catch a break. After losing with the Food Network, Caesars, Walmart, Home Depot, Smithfield Foods, and Target and having her activities with diabetes drug maker Novo Nordisk temporarily suspended… she is now taking a hit from Kmart, Sears, JCPenney and Ballantine Books. They also announced plans to drop deals with Paula Deen. A rep for JCPenney said Friday that the department store planned to "discontinue selling Paula Deen-branded merchandise" and Ballantine released a statement noting that it had cancelled the publication of Paula Deen's upcoming cookbook, Paula Deen's New Testament: 250 Favorite Recipes, All Lightened Up. Sears Holdings, which owns both Sears and Kmart said they "made the decision to phase out all products tied to [Deen's] brand" but would "continue to evaluate the situation." Sad.
