Good News / Bad News
For the past few days, Melissa Rivers has been giving us updates on her mother Joan Rivers‘s condition as she recuperates in the hospital after she stopped breathing during a medical procedure last week. Earlier this week, it was reported that Joan was put on life support while she rested in a medically-induced coma. Today Melissa tells us that Joan has been moved out of the Intensive Care unit and into her own private room … which sounds like good news. But, unfortunately, Joan isn’t yet showing any signs of improvement. More »

Today we get an update from Joan‘s daughter Melissa that confirms that Rivers remains on life support. Honestly, it’s not much of an update but considering how many people are holding out for any bit of positive news, I figured Melissa‘s statement was worth sharing. More »

Early yesterday we learned of the massive leak of celebrity nude photos that were reportedly stolen from private online storage accounts and today we are hearing from Apple Inc. about the leak.

Just a few moments ago, Apple has released an official statement about the incident, which you can read in full below. More »

Law is not happy about the leak of her personal photos … and her official statement makes that fact very clear. It’s short and to the point … read it in full below. More »

Back in June we learned that Michael Sam, the first openly gay player in the NFL, signed a 4-year contract to play for the St. Louis Rams … conditional on how he performed in the pre-season training with the team. Today we learn the sad news that Sam has been released from his Rams contract — which is a nice way of saying that he got cut. After all of his pre-season training with the team, the Rams decided that he wasn’t good enough to play professional football for them. More »

"My family has always been private about our time spent together"
Yesterday we read a very sweet tribute message that Zelda Rae shared on Twitter in memory of the death of her father Robin Williams the day before. Since then, Zelda and her brothers Zak and Cody released longer personal statements in the wake of their father’s death. In response to Zelda‘s tribute, Frances Bean Cobain (the only child of Courtney Love and the late Kurt Cobain) shared a message of support for her on Twitter as well. But, very unfortunately, these personal statements opened up Zelda to horrible abuse by people who inundated her with tasteless jokes about her father’s death. As a result, Zelda has decided to quit social media “for a good long time” altogether. Sigh. The letters shared by Robin Williams‘s children, tho, are exceedingly poignant and worth reading in full below. More »

In an official statement, SMG shares with the world what Robin Williams meant to her and her family. More »
