Fred Durst – Divorced!

That was quick, Fred Durst.

The Limp Bizkit frontman has tweeted to his masses that his union with wife Esther Nazarov has come to an end.

“For those of you inquiring I will confirm that Esther and I have decided to go our separate ways and we both thank you for your support,” Durst tweeted this weekend. He and his wife had been married for only three months.

Durst later updated his feed with “Thank you all SO much for your concern and extremely kind words. Sincerely. We remain very positive and wish only the best for each other.”

Dang, three months? I know that celebrities aren’t known for their long lasting marriages but THREE MONTHS?!

Randy Quaid & Wife Arrested!

Criminal mastermind!

Criminal mastermind!

Holy cow, what the hell is going on with Randy Quaid and his wife?!  Yesterday, the actor and his lady, Evi, were arrested in Texas after being charged with not paying a $10,000 hotel bill. Apparently, authorities in California say the two skipped on paying the hotel and then left town.  I guess.  I don’t know.  This is some pretty hardcore cross-country fugitive stuff here.  Where are the cast members of Law and Order when you need them?

The couple are being held in Marfa, Texas with bail set at $20,000 each.  Authorities aren’t saying much else about the case.  The official warrant was for charges of burglary, defrauding an innkeeper and conspiracy.

Quaid’s reps aren’t saying anything.  Yet.

UPDATE: Quaid and his wife were released on bail after a quick drive to the bank by a friendly, local sheriff.

Barbie Heading to the Big Screen

Well, it’s only been 50 years!

Barbie, the blond bombshell who has graced toy shelves for decades, is finally becoming a movie star. Universal Pictures has grabbed the film rights to Barbie and plan on creating a motion picture about her, with Julie & Julia’s Laurence Mark producing.

I wonder what a Barbie film will be like. Will it be modern Barbie or classic Barbie? Will she be impossibly skinny and fit or realistic? And, most importantly, what will her job be? Flight attendant, nurse? The options are endless.

Hayden Panettiere and Kevin Connolly: Dating?

This would be an interesting Hollywood couple.o91tky Hayden Panettiere and Kevin Connolly: Dating?

Bettyconfidential.com is reporting that Heroes star Hayden Panettiere and Entourage lead Kevin Connolly are dating.  Possibly.  The couple apparently spent the night together at the post-Emmys Entourage party.  According to sources, they definitely seemed like they were dating.

Says the source:

“Hayden spent her entire evening at the Entourage table talking to Kevin. They were there to hang out together and stayed for hours until well after midnight. Kevin only left Hayden’s side towards the end of the night when he wanted to chat with someone at another table.”

We all know that Hayden is into dating older men and Kevin is a good 15 years her senior. This could be a big old fat rumor but it could end up being true. However, I must say, they both look kind of similar. I’m not saying they could play siblings but…well, maybe. I don’t know. That’s a little weird, right?

Kristin Chenoweth Suffers Migraine at Emmys

Emmy winner Kristin Chenoweth had a tough time during a wonderful night Sunday.  Her publicist says that Kristin, who won Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for Pushing Daisies, suffered a rather serious migraine after her win.  According to her publicist, Chenoweth started feeling symptoms after her win and during media interviews.

The actress later laid down to try and subdue her pain.  She was then checked out by paramedics backstage and began to feel better, hoping to join in on the post-Emmy festivities.

I’m happy for Kristin.  She’s a great actress who seems to be finally getting her due praise, even if it’s for a show that’s been, you know, canceled.  And, like every good performer, Chenoweth is able to overcome difficulties and deliver.  If I were her, I’d probably be bawling backstage and pleading for drugs from the paramedics.  But that’s just me.

Zooey Deschanel and Ben Gibbard Wed

Death Cab for Cutie lead singer Ben Gibbard and actress/singer Zooey Deschanel got married over the weekend, her rep told People Magazine. The couple, who had been engaged since last year, wed near Seattle. That location definitely suits these two indie rockers.

I’ve always liked these two and, over time, have been able to get over my crush on Deschanel and accept their inevitable wedding. Besides, if she’s got marry somebody, I’m glad it’s Ben Gibbard.

Congrats, you two!

Mary Travers of Peter, Paul and Mary Dies at 72

B72369 Mary Travers of Peter, Paul and Mary Dies at 72

Mary Travers, best known as Mary from Peter, Paul and Mary passed away yesterday at the age of 72.  Peter, Paul and Mary were a legendary folk revival group that became popular during the 1960’s, creating such classics as “If I Had a Hammer”, “Puff The Magic Dragon” and “Leaving on a Jet Plane”.

Mary was not only known for her music but also her championing of civil rights.  The entire group fought for change throughout the 60’s and were also well known for introducing the world to the work of a young Bob Dylan.  They sang “Blowin’ in the Wind” at peace rallies and protests and turned it into the movement’s anthem.

For me, I’ll always remember Mary’s voice from my childhood, when my parents would play me “Puff the Magic Dragon” over and over again.  It always calmed me and made me happy.  It still does.

R.I.P. Mary.
