Dane Cook Slammed for Blocking ‘Boston Strong’ Gig From Live Streaming

Categories: Uncategorized

cookThe Massachusetts-native comedian, who took part at the Boston benefit concert on Thursday, May 30, says that he doesn’t want his new material to ‘hit the airwaves yet.’

Many Massachusetts artists, including Aerosmith, New Kids On The Block and Extreme, took part at Boston Strong concert on Thursday night, May 30. However, it was comedian Dane Cook who made the biggest headline at the concert after he didn’t allow his part to be included in the free livestream.

The 41-year-old comedian then explained his decision. “Hey everyone sorry my set was not a part of the live stream or televised! I didn’t want any of the new material to hit the airwaves yet!” he tweeted. “I can’t wait to share it soon! The event was so meaningful and special. One of the best nights of my life.”

Cook’s explanation infuriated fans. A Twitter user slammed the “Good Luck Chuck” actor, saying, “@DaneCook You d**k. You were there for a charity, not for your own self-promotion. D**k.”

A Boston Herald’s sports writer, Jeff Howe, also expressed his disappointment. “Couldn’t imagine turning on a city the way @DaneCook did tonight. I know that’s not how it goes here in Massachusetts… I’ll admit, I used to think he was hilarious, but turning your back on your state makes you look like a squirrel… Why use a tragedy to tease your career?”

Boston Strong was expected to raise fund to help the victims of Boston Marathon bombing. The event was not broadcast on TV and this apparently caused troubles to those who live-streamed the five-hour-plus concert. “Nearly half a million people logged on to view the beginning of the show which lead to bandwidth related issues,” promoter Live Nation said in a statement.

Inside Heath Ledger’s Tragic Final Days: His Dark Diary Revealed

Categories: Uncategorized

heathIt’s been almost five and a half years since Heath Ledger‘s shocking death. Now, a newly unearthed documentary featuring the twisted diary he kept during the filming of The Dark Knight is shedding light on his final days.

As Heath prepared to play the demented Joker, he once explained, “I sat around in a hotel room in London for about a month, locked myself away, formed a little diary.”

In this clip from the German documentary Too Young to Die, his father, Kim, flips through the book’s haunting pages.

“He liked to dive into his characters,” Kim remembers. “But this time he really took it up a notch.”

Coming upon his notes for the infamous hospital scene, he said, “The hospital scene is interesting because when he was a kid, his sister Kate liked to dress him up as a nurse. He was really funny like that. He also was in the movie.”

But the book held more painful memories too. After a makeup test that was done eight months prior to filming, Heath wrote “BYE BYE” in large letters scrawled across a page near the back of the book.

Says Kim, “It was hard to see this.”

Now, however, his dad remembers the good days with his son whenever he looks at Heath’s daughter with Michelle Williams, Matilda.

In January, on the five-year anniversary of Heath’s death from an apparent overdose, Kim said, “Matilda has the same walk as Heath and is such a respectful little kid. She calls us ‘Papa’ and ‘Grandma Sal.’ Our family has the most wonderful relationship with both Matilda and Michelle. We talk frequently and visit as often as we can.”

Dan Aykroyd Film Sparks Murder Probe

Categories: Uncategorized

danGhostbusters star Dan Aykroyd was briefly at the centre of a police investigation in Calgary earlier this week after murderous footage of his 1990 film flop Loose Cannons was unearthed at a landfill site.

A worker, who stumbled upon the images of Aykroyd standing over a bloody corpse, failed to recognize the actor and thought he had found evidence of a sickening crime.

He handed his find over to local police officers who quickly realized they were just looking at scenes from a forgotten film.

Aykroyd tells TMZ.com he’s not surprised the film clip stumped the police, stating, “The movie should have been left in the landfill where it belongs.”

Dina Lohan Refuses Drug Test, Calls Security On Michael: Now Lindsay Won’t Have Family Therapy Day In Rehab

Categories: Uncategorized

lindsayJust when it appeared that Lindsay Lohan might get both her parents in the same room for a family therapy session, a TV show blew it all apart.

In a wild (and typical) scene, Dina Lohan refused to take a urine drug test, fought bitterly with Michael Lohan and ended up asking for security after the taping of a TV show, RadarOnline.com has learned.

Dina and Michael taped a new show called The Test and both were asked to take lie detector tests and urine tests as they “worked out” (read: rehashed) their decades of problems with each other.

Michael took both tests. Dina didn’t.

“It’s really, really sad that Dina couldn’t be forthright and be honest,” Michael told RadarOnline about the situation. “It’s a shame that although I took not only the lie detector and urine test she refused to take both.”

Things got so heated between the divorced couple on the TV set that Dina asked for security at show’s end to escort her out. Both were scheduled to sit down in the same room with Lindsay this weekend at the Betty Ford Center for family therapy.

Barring a miracle, that won’t happen and now they will visit her separately.

Dina and Michael argued over Lindsay, drugs, infidelity and rehab. Michael admitted to taping a call from Lindsay when Lindsay said her mother was doing drugs – and said Lindsay asked him to tape it.

Dina denied everything and called Michael a liar. She also said Michael had skipped out of rehab, which Michael admitted – but pointed out that was in the 1980s! He completed other more recent rehab programs.

Anna Nicole Smith’s Daughter Dannielynn Birkhead To Inherit Millions?

Categories: Uncategorized

nicoleA legal battle has dragged on for over ten years, but it looks as if Dannielynn Birkhead may be entitled to the fortune left by her mother’s late husband.

Dannielynn, the daughter of the late Anna Nicole Smith, may be receiving part of the estate of her mom’s late husband, oil billionaire J. Howard Marshall.

Dannielynn was declared the sole heir to the estate back in 2008, but the Supreme Court ruled that Anna Nicole’s estate was not entitled to any of Marshall’s fortune.

On Thursday, a California judge said that Dannielynn, who is now six-years-old, is entitled to sanctions against Marshall’s family.

Little Dannielynn may be entitled to up to $49 million of Marshall’s fortune, which is said to be around $500 million to $1 billion!

The judge made the decision based on allegations that attorneys working for Marshall’s estate used nasty tactics through litigation, including hiding important legal documents from Anna’s estate lawyers.

Anna Nicole Smith went to court after Marshall’s death in 1995, claiming he promised to leave her millions but he didn’t mention her in his will.

After Smith’s drug overdose at age 39 in 2007, her lawyers argued that the money should go to Dannielynn. The little girl was was fathered by one of her lovers, Larry Birkhead, 37.

Anna married the oil tycoon J. Howard Marshall in 1994 when he was 89-years-old and she was only 26. He died a year later.

Dannielynn Birkhead is the spitting image of her mother and is being raised by her father Larry Birkhead.

Demi Moore Didn’t Attend Daughter’s College Graduation

Categories: Top Stories

demi-mooreDemi Moore’s suspicious absence from her daughter Scout Willis’ college graduation is growing more mysterious as she won’t answer why she missed the milestone event for her youngest child.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Demi was a no-show at Scout’s Brown University graduation on May 26 in Providence, Rhode Island.

Her father Bruce Willis and her stepmom Emma Hemming were there helping her celebrate the big day along with her sisters Rumer and Tallulah Willis.

But her mom, 50, was nowhere to be seen, raising speculation about why she didn’t attend.

Her representative didn’t return a request for a comment about her absence to RadarOnline.com

Demi hasn’t been photographed in Los Angeles since May 22 after attending a yoga class in Hollywood.

Her new boy toy Will Hanigan jetted back to his Australian home and he recently said that their relationship was “complicated.”

Demi has been estranged from her daughters following her split from her husband Ashton Kutcher in 2011 and her early 2012 stint in rehab but she did attend Tallulah’s high school graduation in June 2012, so her absence at Scout’s is raising a red flag for those around her.

“Demi is trying so hard to repair her relationship with her daughters,” a source told RadarOnline.com.

“Not showing up to Scout’s graduation doesn’t seem like something she would do since she’s been making such an effort lately.”

Matthew Perry’s Drug Addiction And Road To Recovery

Categories: Top Stories

Matthew-Perry-matthew-perry-29662061-1024-768Behind the comedic one-liners and witty sarcasm, Chandler Bing was hiding a secret — the actor playing the famous sitcom character on “Friends” was battling serious addiction issues.

Matthew Perry revealed to ABC News Wednesday morning that he struggled with depression, alcohol and prescription drug abuse throughout his tenure on the show, which went off the air in 2004, and beyond. Looking back, Perry said he was “a sick guy” and was sent to rehab multiple times as a result.

“Mostly it was drinking, you know, and opiates,” Perry told ABC. “I think I was pretty good at hiding it but, you know, eventually people were aware.”

The media regularly covered his addiction as well as his weight and appearance fluctuations, which something a now-sober Perry said aided in his recovery.

Since that time, the 43-year-old has made a mission of helping other addicts find their own paths to sobriety. After joining forces with addiction specialist Earl Hightower, he transformed his former place in Malibu, California into a sober living home for men called the Perry House. Perry and Hightower were honored earlier this month with the Champion of Recovery award from the Obama Administration’s Office of National Drug Control Policy.

“We’re award-winning alcoholics,” Perry joked.

Former Child Star Rick Schroder Says His ‘Heart Goes Out’ To Amanda Bynes

Categories: Uncategorized

rRicky Schroder knows that life can be tough for child stars. The now 43-year-old actor-director, who starred in the popular 80s series Silver Spoons as a teenager, sees the troubles that Amanda Bynes and Lindsay Lohan are battling and wishes that someone would help them.

“My heart goes out to them, first of all,” Ricky said during an interview with ABC News Now. “They’re in a place, it’s not good.”

Ricky feels that the people in Amanda and Lindsay’s lives are basically just using them to make money.

“There’s a lot of people around them who don’t care about them and want to capitalize on it,” he said.

In past weeks, Amanda has concerned the world by tweeting angry messages about celebrities like Rihanna, posting bizarre videos, and worst of all, getting arrested on May 23 for allegedly throwing a bong out the window of her New York City apartment.

Lindsay is supposedly working through her issues in a court-mandated, three-month rehab stay at Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, Calif.

“I feel bad for them,” Ricky said. “I just wish some people could intervene on their behalf.”

Katie Couric Once Went Out With Bob Saget, Jeff Probst

Categories: Uncategorized

katieSo that’s her type.

Katie Couric, America’s favorite bubbly talk-show host, admitted to Howard Stern on Wednesday that she was once courted by TV’s Bob Saget and Jeff Probst.

Naturally, each date never made it to a second — but that was still plenty time for Couric to make some key observations.

On dating Bob Saget:

He’s really fun. I had fun, I don’t think I did it for him.

 

On dating Probst:

I went out with Jeff Probst once too. I think he had puka shells on — that was kind of a weird thing.

On the results:

I can’t say that I was devastated that neither called me back. I thought they were both nice guys … I don’t think there was real magic there with either [of them], but I enjoyed spending time with them.

For the record: Couric — who lost her husband to colon cancer in 1998 — is now dating New York financier John Molner, whom she met last year.
