She faces 15-40 years in prison!!!
Back in June we learned that former original Melrose Place actress Amy Locane (who starred in the first season of the original show back in the 1990′s) got busted for drunk driving after she killed another driver in a car accident. Today we learn that Locane has been indicted with felony aggravated manslaughter and assault by a grand jury and faces up to 15 to 40 years in prison if she is convicted on both charges!
Former “Melrose Place” star Amy Locane has been indicted in New Jersey on charges of aggravated manslaughter and assault by auto following her deadly crash earlier this year … TMZ has learned. Sources tell TMZ Locane was indicted this afternoon by a grand jury in Somerset County. As we previously reported, Locane smashed into the side of another car in Montgomery, NJ back in June … killing the woman in the front seat. Locane told cops she had several glasses of wine before getting behind the wheel. Locane faces 10-30 years behind bars for the manslaughter charge — and 5-10 years for the assault by auto charge. Locane’s attorney Blair Zwillman tells TMZ he’s “surprised” at the aggravated manslaughter charge, adding, “I don’t believe it is supported by the law or the facts and I think it constitutes over-reaching by the prosecutor’s office.”
I can appreciate that Locane‘s lawyer is trying to argue is client out of prison but the fact that she KILLED someone because of her admitted drunk driving seems pretty clear to me that she needs to be locked up for a very long time. At the end of the day, Locane ended someone’s life … and no amount of time served in prison will undo that horrible act. Whether or not she serves a shorter sentence in prison or a longer sentence, she can never truly atone for taking another person’s life. It remains to be seen first if she will be convicted on these charges and second how long she will be sentenced to prison if she is convicted. I really have no sympathy for Amy Locane one way or the other. My thoughts go out to the family who lost their loved one in this tragic accident. The price they continue to pay is immeasurable :(

Same 30 Seconds to Mars, More Boobies
Last month we got to see the “edited for broadcast” semi-censored version of the new 30 Seconds to Mars music video for their single Hurricane and today we get to see the final, Director’s Cut, totally uncensored version of the vid. 30StM frontman Jared Leto tweeted this week that the version of the video we saw previously was NOT the uncensored version:
Despite the fact that we saw a censored and less censored version of the video last month, we have not yet seen the totally uncensored version of the video … until now. 30 Seconds to Mars have finally released the Director’s Cut version of Hurricane … here are a few screencaps:
For the most part, the video is very much the same in tone and storyline … but this version of the video features a few more sexual scenes as well as imagery of nekkid women. After the jump, if you dare, check out the NSFW uncensored version of the 30StM music video for Hurricane … More »
Julia Stiles vehemently denies that she had an affair with MCH
On Tuesday we learned the very sad news that Dexter co-stars and real life married couple Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter have decided to end their marriage … and today we learn that the couple have taken things one step further toward divorce. Jennifer filed divorce papers in SoCal yesterday which very likely means that there will be no reconciliation:
TMZ has learned … Jennifer Carpenter just filed her petition for divorce this afternoon from her “Dexter” co-star Michael C. Hall … but it turns out they’ve been separated for a long time. According to the document, the date of separation is listed as August 9, 2010. Carpenter cites “irreconcilable differences” in the petition filed in L.A. County Superior Court. Carpenter is also asking for spousal support and for attorney’s fees. The couple, who married in 2008, have no children.
UGH … this break-up is just so sad. I just can’t get over it. What makes the matter even worse is the irresponsible rumors going around that actress Julia Stiles has anything to do with the couple’s break-up. It is the easiest and laziest assumption to claim that Julia — who joined the cast of Dexter this season in a guest starring role — started an extramarital affair with MCH and to blame her for the split. I just don’t understand how people can believe a cheating claim like this when it is based on no proof at all. Just because MCH and Julia Stiles acted together on the show, they had to have been engaging in a cheating affair? Because of all of the irresponsible rumors, Julia Stiles felt compelled to issue a statement denying that she had anything to do with MCH and Jennifer‘s split. After the jump, read Julia‘s full statement … More »
On Tuesday we learned the sad news that Dexter co-stars and real life married couple Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter have decided to end their marriage and today we get to see a couple photos of MCH braving the chilly streets of SoCal all by his lonesome:
I’m not gonna lie, I’m still pretty shocked and bummed that MCH and Jen couldn’t make it work but … I guess it’s for the best. I loved seeing the couple together, even if it did weird me out that the on-screen brother and sister were romantically involved. I just don’t want to think of MCH going it alone … he strikes me as such a great guy. Here’s hoping he couples up to a lovely lady when the time is right … and that he is able to enjoy the alonetime that he is dealing with now.

Since last June we got to see photos from the SoCal set of the new film Water for Elephants … including train scenes, horse scenes, elephant scenes and dog scenes. Today, we get our first look at the first movie trailer for the film:
To be honest, I’m still not convinced that this movie is for me. I know I’ve voiced concerns about the film before but so many Pink readers have encouraged me to see the film (or at least read the book it it based on) that I became convinced that I might like the film. I dunno … this trailer doesn’t really wow me, to be honest. Check it out in full after the jump, and judge for yourselves … More »

Workin' things out?
Last month we learned that Eva Longoria filed for divorce from her hubby and San Antonio Spurs basketball player Tony Parker amid allegations that he cheated on her emotionally with a teammate’s wife. Just a few days later, Tony filed divorce papers of his own. Earlier this month, Eva and Tony reunited for a lunch date together here in SoCal presumably to discuss their pending divorce. Today, we get to see a new photo, courtesy of TMZ, that shows Eva Longoria chatting with Tony at a BBQ joint/gas station in San Antonio, TX this week … could a reconciliation be in the works?
Eva Longoria flew a few thousand miles to be with Tony Parker yesterday, dining on good ol’ Texas BBQ. The picture shows Eva — dressed in black and wearing a black hat — at Rudy’s Country Store and Bar-B-Q, just north of San Antonio. Tony is behind the pillar. Sources connected with the couple tell TMZ Eva flew to Texas to spend time with Tony. We’re told it was all very friendly. The restaurant — actually it’s a gas station with a BBQ pit out back — is a couple of miles from the huge house that Tony and Eva recently built. The divorce is still on, but one source connected with the couple says not to rule out the chance for a reconciliation.
Now, either this BBQ joint/gas station has got some great grub or Eva and Tony are really working behind the scenes to at the very least stay friendly thru their divorce … or at best, to work on staying together. If the couple have already met twice already, then they’ve prolly met other times that we don’t know about. Eva and Tony‘s dueling divorce papers filing came pretty fast … mebbe they rushed into things? I guess we’ll know soon enough if the couple are really dunzo or if their dunzoness is dunzo.

Another look at the dress
Yesterday, in People magazine, we got our first look at the first photo released from Nicole Richie and Joel Madden‘s wedding ceremony which took place in Beverly Hills, CA last weekend. Today we get to see another photo from the wedding but this photo is published on the cover of the German In magazine:
The first shots of Nicole Richie in her wedding gown have surfaced — and she looks absolutely stunning! The pictures, which appear on the cover of Germany’s In magazine, show Richie in her lace, tulle and organza Marchesa gown — which she tells PEOPLE was inspired by the one Grace Kelly wore in her wedding to the Prince Rainier of Monaco. The photos also show Joel Madden in his tux, Nicole with her father, Lionel, and with her daughter, Harlow. PEOPLE magazine will have additional photos from the wedding in Friday’s issue.
It is very common for celebs to sell wedding and baby photos to both domestic and international publications at the same time. One photographer takes all of the photos and then the two publications pick which photos they want to publish. I’m assuming that People got first pick because I much prefer the photo they released yesterday over this one. This photo of Nicole is a bit odd. The angle of her face doesn’t really work for me … and that smile looks kinda scary. We do get a better look at the top part of her Marcesa dress and, as you can see, In magazine also features 3 other photos on the cover. I can’t wait to see them all in much larger size … the photo of Nicole holding her daughter Harlow Winter Kate looks adorable. I really, really can’t wait to see more.
"We are having twins."
First, the very pregs Mariah Carey referred to the children she is carrying in her womb as “they” leading people to speculate that she is having twins … then, hubby Nick Cannon flat out denied that the couple are having twins. Today, we hear from Nick again in a new radio interview and he is now telling us something different. Nick Cannon has come out and finally confirmed that yes, Mimi is carrying twins in her baby bump:
Ever since Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon confirmed their pregnancy news, the world has been wondering: Is it a boy or a girl? Maybe even multiples? On Thursday, Cannon himself put rumors to rest on his radio show, telling listeners, “We are having twins.” The two have been cautious about revealing too many details since they’ve had a “long journey” to parenthood, which included a miscarriage in 2008. But when President Barack Obama happened to ask about her pregnancy, Carey just couldn’t keep a secret. While performing at TNT’s Christmas in Washington 2010 on Sunday, Carey ran into President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama backstage. “They, ironically enough, questioned my wife about, you know, ‘So, what are you having, are you having twins?’ ” Cannon said Thursday morning on his 92.3 Rollin’ With Nick Cannon radio show. “And at this point she hadn’t told anybody anything because doctors advised us to keep it to ourselves until we get further along,” he said. “And because of the excitement, because of the emotion, she was overwhelmed [and] she shared with the President and First Lady that we are having twins.”
Aww … I love it! My guess is that Mr. & Mrs. Cannon prolly wouldn’t've confirmed the twins until Mimi gave birth if it wasn’t for the nosiness of the Obamas. To be honest, I don’t care what inspired them to spill the beans … this is just happy, happy news! We do NOT know if the twins will be identical or fraternal nor do we know when Mariah is due to give birth. But we do know she and Nick will be the happy parents of TWO adorable babies very soon … I cannot wait to meet them :D

The TV Guide
Last night David and I made our way to the Ahmanson Theatre in downtown LA to see a performance of the touring version of the Tony and Pulitzer prize winning musical Next to Normal. Altho I first saw the show on Broadway back in August of 2009, I was really excited to be able to see the show again here in LA:
David is a huge fan of the show so he was really excited to see it again. Alice Ripley, the actress who originated the lead role on Broadway (and won a Tony award for her work), is featured in this touring cast and she is joined by a fantastic group of actors. I was really impressed with all of them, especially Emma Hunton who plays Natalie the daughter. For those of you who don’t know, Next to Normal tells the tale of a family that has to deal with a mother’s frantic bi-polar disorder. I know it doesn’t sound like the kind of fare you’d get from a stage musical but the story is not only compelling, it’s riveting and truly heartfelt. The show is here in LA until January 2, it’s a deffo must see for all Broadway musical fans.
Tonight, I’m hoping to meet up with Darion for dinner/movie/hanging out … other than that, things are gonna be pretty quite around here. I hope your Wednesday is going well!! Happy Hump Day!!

Last week we got our first look at the first promo pics released for Jersey Shore season 3. Today we get our first look at a new JS3 promo photo of the entire cast … and from the looks on their faces, they seem about as bored with the show as I am:
It is becoming increasingly clear that pretty much everyone is already over Jersey Shore … including the Jersey Shore cast themselves. My guess is that the cast is trying to look “serious” in this photo but they, instead, all look like they could give two shits about anything. If I’m bored with the show and the JS cast is bored with the show … what is my incentive to watch season 3? Anyone?
