"There has been no change"
Members of Bobbi Kristina Brown, who is currently hospitalized in the wake of a drowning incident that happened over a week ago, have announced that they will be holding a public vigil for her tonight called Shining a Light for Healing in an attempt to get God to “perform a miracle in her, so that he will get the glory.” Unnamed family members confirm that there has been no change in Bobbi‘s condition (which means she is still on life-support) but they feel that a public prayer vigil will help bring about her recovery. From what I understand, this vigil idea is coming from the Brown side of her family so there is no word if A.) her father Bobby Brown will participate or B.) any members of the Houston side of the family will participate but as far as I can tell, the public vigil for Bobbi Kristina will take place tonight nonetheless.

"I listen to my doctors"
Yesterday we learned the somewhat surprising news that Rosie O’Donnell has decided to leave her job as co-host of The View, divorce her wife of three years Michelle Rounds and star in an HBO stand up comedy special — all at the same time. Rosie made an in-person press appearance yesterday at a screening of her new HBO special Rosie O’Donnell: A Heartfelt Stand Up and made herself available to answer questions about her professional and private life. According to Rosie, it was her doctors who convinced her to quit The View because the stress on her heart was becoming too much to handle. For Rosie, quitting The View was a life or death situation.

1 person dead, 7 people injured, Bruce unharmed
Reality TV star Bruce Jenner was involved in a fatal car accident yesterday while driving on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, CA. The investigation into the accident is far from complete but initial reports suggest that Jenner was being chased by paparazzi photographers following him closely (likely inspired by news that he is about to reveal details about his reported transition) and he slammed into a car that was coming to a stop at a red light. The car he hit was pushed into oncoming traffic that the driver of that car was killed. Police have initially determined that Jenner was not speeding but they issued a warrant for his cell phone to determine if he was using his phone at the time of the accident. The good news for Bruce is that he was not severely injured in the accident and he voluntarily submitted to a blood alcohol test to prove that he was not impaired while driving. Very sadly, tho, this tragic accident resulted in the death of an innocent person. More »

Plus, the Brown & Houston families are feuding over BK's hospitalization
The good news is that Bobbi Kristina Brown‘s condition (in the wake of her hospitalization after she was found unconscious in a bathtub in her home last weekend) hasn’t worsened in the past couple days and has actually improved very slightly. This is not to say that she is out of the woods just yet but at least things aren’t getting worse. The bad news is that the two sides of her family — the Houstons and the Browns — are feuding so selfishly amongst themselves that Bobbi Kris was moved to a different hospital so that one side of the family could keep the other side away from her as she recovers. Insane. Additionally, Bobby Brown‘s attorney has released an official statement making clear that Bobbi Kristina never married Nick Gordon, despite assertions from the couple that they did get married last year. This is important because if BK is unmarried, Bobby Brown would be the next of kin and he gets to make the decisions concerning her care while hospitalized. More »
Conflicting reports about her condition are cause for concern
On Saturday we learned that Bobbi Kristina Brown, the only child of the late Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, was found unconscious in a bathtub in her home. According to reports, she was revived via CPR and was rushed to the hospital in “stable” condition. Yesterday, members of her extended family provided a public update in an effort to relay the message that Bobbi Kris “doesn’t do drugs”. Today we are hearing much about BK‘s current condition … but the reports are conflicting. The prevailing information going around is that Bobbi Kristina has been placed in a medically induced coma and that she has significantly diminished brain function. But, E! News — who managed to get an official statement from her father Bobby Brown — is reporting that BK has not been placed in a coma but is unresponsive (ie. unconscious) on a ventilator. At this point, we know for sure that Bobbi is hospitalized and unconscious … and it really does sound like her prognosis at this point is grim. More »
Very scary, extremely sad news to pass along … TMZ is reporting that Bobbi Kristina Brown, the only child of the late Whitney Houston and singer Bobby Brown, was found unconscious in a bathtub in her home. As you may know, Whitney Houston passed away almost 3 years ago (on February 11) when she was found unresponsive in a bathtub in a hotel here on Grammy Awards weekend. According to this report, Bobbi Kris was found by her husband Nick Gordon and a friend who performed CPR on her until paramedics could arrive. Thankfully, she was revived and is now “stabilized and breathing”. Wow. This is just insanely incredible :( More »
This is our country, these are our schools
Are any of you following the Humans of New York series? It’s incredible, and I’m going to go back and read some more entries after I write this, because I just need to keep hope alive. What you are about to see is a video of a police officer—wait, let’s just pause for a minute there. We have police officers in schools. Still not over that fact. And, come to think of it, I went to a school with security guards on the main floor (a performing arts school, believe it or not), so I guess I shouldn’t be that flabbergasted. So, yes, police in middle schools—great job, America. And this police officer took it upon herself to beat a 13 year-old girl with her baton, because the girl pushed her in the hallway. The girl had to be taken to the ER, where she received 10 stitches for the gash in her head. Would you believe me if I told you that THE GIRL (along with her two family members who tried to help her) WAS CHARGED WITH ASSAULTING A POLICE OFFICER? Click inside for more.
Well, actor Peter Mayhew has the pneumonia
Actor Peter Mayhew, the only actor to ever play Chewbacca in the Star Wars movies, was forced to cancel an in-person appearance this weekend due to illness. It turns out that Mayhew was stuck with a nasty bout of pneumonia and had to be hospitalized. Altho the illness can be very serious, Mayhew‘s wife says that his pneumonia is under control and he should be discharged from the hospital soon. But I’m guessing that sending our best wishes for a speedy recovery will do wonders for good ol’ Chewbacca. More »

For the most part, Justin Bieber has been laying pretty low lately … not really getting into trouble and not really causing much of a fuss, except when he tried to convince the world he bought himself a new private jet when, in fact, he did no such thing. Last week, video of The Biebs surfaced that showed him doing a bit of skateboarding and not really doing it very well (not to mention the dress he was wearing over his leather pants, ugh). Today we learn that JB ended up breaking his ankle because he posted a photo of his swollen foot on his official Facebook page. No word on how he injured himself but I’m gonna guess this break might be due to his poor skateboarding skills. Click below to see Bieber‘s busted foot. More »

"The gown is sooooo hipster"
Miley Cyrus was hospitalized Friday for a surgical procedure on her wrist which she did not explain … but she sure did enjoy sharing photos from the surgery. Actually, Miley shared one photo of her open wrist on her official Instagram profile … as well as a slew of Photoshopped photos of her wrist in an attempt to have as much fun as possible from her medical woe. The photos are fairly graphic but the Photoshopping is mostly fun. Have a look, if you dare.
