Earlier this month we learned that Conrad Murray was found guilty of the manslaughter death of Michael Jackson and today we learn the fate of his conviction. Murray was back in court this morning to be sentenced for the crime he was convicted of and the ruling judge decided to throw the book at him. The maximum punishment for manslaughter is 4 years in prison … and that is exactly the sentence that Murray got slapped with. BUT, not so fast … because of a new law in California, Murray will NOT go to prison — he’ll go to jail instead. Nor will he serve the full 4 years — he’ll likely be out after 2 years. In addition, Murray has been ordered to pay restitution of about $900. So that works out to … 2 years in jail and $900 for the death of Michael Jackson. I guess justice has been served. More »

Last night I got to hang out with my friends Erin and Halli for the whole night and altho we didn’t have a plan we ended up having a pretty fun evening together. The ladies took me to 5 Guys Burgers & Fries so I could find out what all the fuss is about and man, was that a great way to the start the night. The rest of the night was spent walking all over Manhattan enjoying the 70 degree weather. We checked out some of the storefront windows newly decorated for Xmas and ended up at our fave Mexican restaurant for margaritas and sangria. All in all, we had a fantastic night. More »
Back in August we learned that former Real Housewives of NYC star Bethenny Frankel had scored a development deal for her own talk show. As much as I LOVE Bethenny, my initial reaction to news of a talk show was … well, of no real interest. While I find her fun to watch in a reality TV sense, I can’t really see how a daily talk show would appeal to me. Well, apparently the bosses at all the major networks agree because The Hollywood Reporter is reporting this week that Bethenny‘s talk show is dead … dunzo before it could even get off the ground. Apparently, the show was shopped all over town and no one was interested. Get out the spork, y’all … it sounds like it’s time to peace out Bethenny‘s dreams of being a talk show host. More »

Director Guy Ritchie is featured in the new issue of Details magazine, in order to promote his new sequel film Sherlock Holmes 2: A Game of Shadows and in his interview, the subject of his failed marriage to Madonna came up.

Despite the fact that the union didn’t work out, Guy says that he enjoyed his marriage to Madonna and has no regrets about their decision to marry. Click below to read more. More »

Steven R. McQueen, the grandson of famed actor Steve McQueen and star of The Vampire Diaries, was spotted recently on a shirtless jog with his pet pooch … and the photos of the 23 year old lad are worth checking out. On TVD, Steven plays the younger brother of protagonist Elena (played by Nina Dobrev) and since last season has gone thru a bit of a growth spurt from boy to man. As you can see below, McQueen has beefed up considerably for the role. US Grade A hunk!
What I like most about these photos is how normal Steven looks … he’s fit but not starved. Throw in the adorable dog and it’s almost cute overkill. For the most part, McQueen manages to fly under the radar … but if he continues to go out for shirtless jogs, well, he’s bound to get a bit more attention. I approve of the practice of shirtless jogging. Here’s hoping it’ll become Steven‘s new thing ;)
