Melanie Griffith in Rehab

Melanie Griffith

Melanie Griffith

Melanie Griffith has checked herself into rehab again.  The actress has entered the Cirque Lodge in Utah to presumably battle her addiction to painkillers.  However, it appears that this trip to rehab isn’t as urgent as earlier visits.

A statement from her rep said: “She is there to reinforce her commitment to stay healthy. This is part of a routine plan that was designed between her and her doctors years ago.”

I don’t really know how going back to rehab for the third time is part of a plan.  Maybe Melanie is battling her old demons again.  However, maybe this really is part of a healthy, predetermined plan.  Beats me, I’m not a doctor.  I know, I know, surprising huh?  Yeah, I’m confused for a doctor constantly.

“Inglourious Basterds” Does Gloriously

(Sorry about the bad pun)

Most people really enjoyed Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds. I know I did. I felt a strong sense of Jewish pride watching all those Nazis get punished. Also, the film is well done and exciting without losing the indie spirit of a Tarantino flick. I thought the movie would do well. Not this well though.

Inglourious Basterds made $37.6 million this weekend, far surpassing predictions and bringing in a haul rarely seen in late August. It’s a big plus for The Weinstein Co. as well, who haven’t seen many hits yet. As well as the great box office, the movie is doing spectacularly with critics and audiences. It’s getting big thumbs up across the board.

The summer is just about over and this will probably be the last big news story from this movie season, unless The Final Destination or Halloween 2 really blow people away (they won’t). Now that it’s all said and done, we can officially say that Transformers: Rise of the Fallen ended up being the biggest film of the summer. But we all kind of saw that coming, right?

Did Michael Jackson Kill Michael Jackson?

michael jackson11 Did Michael Jackson Kill Michael Jackson?

I hear Michael Jackson’s doctor; Conrad Murray may be on suicide watch. I am constantly hearing about Michael’s friends, family and fans that are still devastated by his death, I should know, I’m one of them.

It’s been months since Michael’s passing. I’ve been so sad and angry. Then suddenly something hits me like a ton of bricks, literally making me stop in my tracks, it was my first epiphany since I had learned the tragic news of Michael Jackson’s death. I began to ask myself, “Who really killed Michael Jackson? The drugs? His doctors? The enablers? His handlers? Or is there a chance that Michael killed Michael?”

Michael Jackson’s doctors should never have allowed him to take all those drugs, however, the practice of dispensing medication is so prevalent. Let’s face it, doctors are only people thus having a demanding, rich and famous client can be very persuasive when it comes to doing what’s right. Furthermore, even if the doctors stopped dispensing the pharmaceuticals, chances are the addict finds them somewhere else, usually on the dangerous black market.

The people surrounding Michael Jackson should have confronted him and said “Enough!” A little tough love could have benefited Michael greatly, however, if you’ve ever known an addicted person, then you know, that tough love will often falls on deaf ears. When you say “No!” the addict often recoils and often starts seeking new friends, nefarious new enablers, anyone who will say “yes.”

Learning Michael’s doctor is shut in his home, afraid to come to out, scared to answer the phone, and knowing Michael’s people are reeling and floundering in his passing, I suddenly started feeling sorry for the living and moreover, I started getting mad, for the very first time, I was mad at Michael Jackson.

You were so talented, you brought so much joy to so many, and you helped so many in countless ways. My god dear Michael, I know you were in great pain, but why could you not have used your extraordinary powers to try and heal yourself? if not for you, for your friends, family, for your fans? I love you Michael, I have shown you that in every way.

I think the time has come to show support for those of us that are still living. To stop the blaming and start the loving, because love, after all, is the most potent cure, and most importantly; I think you would have wanted it this way Michael.

Jackie Kennedy Had Relationship with Marlon Brando?

A new book is claiming that Jackie Kennedy had “flings” with not only Hollywood legend Marlon Brando but also Bobby Kennedy, the brother of her husband.  All the relationships took place after President Kennedy’s assassination but this is still shocking news, if true.  And I stress if.

David Heymann, author of the book Bobby and Jackie: A Love Story, says he got his hands on unpublished chapters from Marlon Brando’s memoir, which filled him in on the juicy details.  Among them: Jackie O and Brando met in 1964 at a dinner and spent the night drinking and dancing.  Other festivities followed later…

The book claims that Kennedy cut off the relationship when she later remarried.  The alleged relationship with Bobby Kennedy happened shortly after JFK’s death, according to Heymann.

I don’t know if I believe all this.  Heymann is trying to sell books after all.  At the same time, Jackie O had every right to see whoever she wanted so big deal if she did date these guys.

Crypt Above Marilyn Monroe Sold!

marilyn monroe crypt 300x252 Crypt Above Marilyn Monroe Sold!

The crypt above Marilyn Monroe was just sold today for $4.6 million at an auction on eBay. Bidding for the auction started at $500,000 on Aug 14. It isunknown who bought the crypt. We thought Hugh Hefner would.

The crypt above Marilyn at Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery is being vacated, making room for someone else. A woman named Elsie Poncher, sold her husband’s crypt above Marilyn to pay off her house mortgage! Her husband had bought the crypt from Marilyn’s ex husband Joe DiMaggio in 1954. DiMaggio had planned on being laid to rest above Marilyn, but he changed his mind and sold the plot when he and Marilyn divorced in 1954.

Monroe was laid to rest at the cemetery in 1962. Mr. Poncher was put to rest above Marilyn “face down” in 1986. Elsie Poncher said that Mr. Poncher will now be moved one plot over from the original.

Michael Lohan “Inside Job” Lindsay Burglary

lohan1 223x300 Michael Lohan “Inside Job” Lindsay Burglary

Can you say drama?  It’s usually the first word when describing Lohan these days. This time around Lohan’s house was again violated and the breakers-in were caught in video surveillance cameras.

It was papa Lohan who called cops to report the break in telling our friends at TMZ that a wall safe and some watches were taken. Michael Lohan also stated it was an “Inside job” because people that work for Lindsay failed to arm the alarm.

“I am not going to put up with individuals violating my family. Lindsay is a charitable, generous person that always gives. This is a personal violation and it has got to stop.” Said Mr. Lohan.

Lindsay wobbled home at 3 a.m. discovering the break in. It is the second such burglary in 3 months.
