Megan Fox says cutting out dairy is the key to looking good.

The ‘This Is 40’ actress has bounced back to her stunning pre-pregnancy figure even though she only gave birth to her first child, Noah, in September and Megan credits lack of dairy with helping her to lose weight.

She told Hollyscoop: “I’m not eating dairy, that’s my biggest secret. It’s really hard on your hormones and it’s not good. If you want to gain weight, eat dairy. If you don’t, don’t eat it.”

It was recently revealed Megan only gained 23 pounds while expecting by keeping her exercise routine consistent.

The 26-year-old beauty's personal trainer Harley Pasternak said: "We worked out throughout her entire pregnancy. She was a model of health through the whole process. She really educated herself big time and had a great relationship with her physician so she really understood the safe boundaries of how to exercise and eat well during pregnancy. As a result, she knew how active she could be and she was very consistent and didn't overdo it.

"As she progressed from trimester to trimester, we'd modify things. As a result, she was so fit at the point of delivery that it actually went more easily and she was able to get medical clearance relatively quickly to come back and keep working out."

My sisters and I will all have babies in 2012 so it's such an exciting time. Even though I'm exhausted, gaining weight and breaking out from all the hormones, I'm really enjoying my pregnancy. It's all for the baby so I couldn't care less!"

The couple tied the knot in April 2006 and Marisa has previously revealed she only has eyes for her husband.

She said: "My job can definitely bring out a lot of insecurities or trust issues, but I'm so thankful we never had that. I don't give my husband a reason to worry.

 [ Masterweb Reports ] – A helicopter crash in the forests of Okoroba community in Nembe local Government of Bayelsa State has consumed the lives of Kaduna State governor, Patrick Ibrahim Yakowa, immediate past National Security Adviser (NSA), General Owoye Andrew Azazi (rtd) and four others.  The other victims were the pilot and co-pilot (Commander Muritala Mohammed Daba & Lt. Adeyemi O. Sowole), and aides to Yakowa and Azazi (Dauda Tsoho & Warrant Officer Mohammed Kamal).

The crash occurred around 4: 30 pm local time shortly after  take-off. Masterweb News Desk gathered the victims were returning to Yenagoa (Bayelsa State capital) from the funeral of the father of  Douglas Oronto, one of President Goodluck Jonathan’s Special Advisers when they met their untimely death.

Fidelis Odunna, Bayelsa police spokesman confirmed a navy helicopter crashed in Ogbia Creek but gave no details of those onboard. An aide to Yakowa speaking on condition of anonymity confirmed the death of his boss in the crash. Many important  dignitaries were in Bayelsa on Saturday for the funeral.  President Jonathan was not in Bayelsa at the time of the crash, according to the presidency.

Comrade Hitler Adunion, ex-Chairman of Okoroba Community Development Committee (OCDC) who witnessed the incident told reporters the helicopter wobbled and nosedived into the forest bursting into flames.  In his words: "We sighted the chopper wobbling and crash-landed. By the time we got to the scene, it was in flames. We tried to put out the flame but it was difficult. We saw the roasted bodies of those inside."

Kaduna metropolis streets  swelled with pockets of crowd discussing the demise of Yakowa as the news filtered in, three hours after the crash and confirmation he was onboard the ill-fated copter. Security has been beefed up in the city.  Security forces patrol  all nooks and corners of the city. There is unprecedented traffic jam on most major roads and streets of the city.

National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) located the crash site within 20 minutes after the disaster and found all  the six passengers dead, most burnt beyond recognition. The dead bodies, which included those of Governor Yakowa and  General Azazi were deposited in the mortuary of an undisclosed hospital.

[ Masterweb Reports ]Where is Father Mark? The question was directed at no one in particular. One of his parishioners, Mr Ugochukwu Obute, was only trying to be sure that their spiritual father was present at the official commissioning ceremony of their neighbourhood internal roads. Obute, who is the chairman of town one in the Federal Housing Estate, New Owerri, wanted to be sure that the Reverend Father was present, ostensibly to help clear some doubts and misinformation among the residents of the urban community.

It turned out that some government agencies had been laying claims to building their roads. The roads were so well done that some politicians saw it as a means of boosting their chances of electoral conquest. Curiously, those trying to take credit for the good roads did not mind that a project sign post boldly proclaimed that the contract was awarded by the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC.

So, when Rev. Dr Mark Njoku, the Parish Priest of St Mark’s Catholic Church, had the opportunity to speak, he said he was relieved that they had confirmed the true identity of the agency that brought them succour. “At last, we now know who to thank for giving us a solid and smooth network of roads. We are certainly going to offer specials prayers for the NDDC for literally making our roads straight and smooth.” he said.

For Engr. Emeka Nwachukwu, one of the leaders in the estate, “this is the dividend of democracy that we can see and feel.” He said that a good job always speaks for itself, noting that the NDDC deserves kudos for paying attention to quality. Indeed, the three-kilometre road seemed to confer the status of Government Reservation Area [GRA] on the estate.

The neighbouring Federal Housing Estate, also in the New Owerri area of the state capital, equally celebrated the inauguration of its own internal roads built by the NDDC. The chairman of that section of the estate, Engr. Jerry Ugwuoke, commended the fact that the asphalt was laid on stone base. ‘That is as good as it gets in road construction,” he said.

The high standard exhibited on these roads, more or less set the tone for many other projects commissioned within the same period by the NDDC in Imo and Rivers states. While 6 have been inaugurated so far in Imo State, it was a rosier picture in Rivers State, where 46 completed projects were handed over to the benefitting communities. The projects include roads, solar-powered water, classroom blocks, cottage comprehensive health centres and rural electrification.

It was celebration galore as the people sang and danced to express their joy and appreciation for the amenities the NDDC had provided for them. The people of Mbaoma in Owerri North Local Government Area of Imo State were particularly joyful. Their happiness came from the portable water which they are now drinking, courtesy of the 20,000 gallon solar-powered water scheme built by the commission.. Their school children danced; their women danced and their men cheered. Even NDDC officials joined in the dancing.

The dancing continued in Akeme community in Arondizogu, Ideato North Local Government Area. They also had cause to rejoice as the Ejizie-Izuogu Road was handed over to them by the NDDC. Eze Dr Mike Nwosu, the traditional ruler of Akeme in Arondizogu, said that his people had seen the good works of the NDDC and could testify that the commission does not compromise on standards. “Our prayer is that the road will pave the way to a flourishing relationship that will benefit my people,” he said.

Eze Nwosu said he had many good things to say to the NDDC but he was constrained to limit his comments to Igbo language because of a new directive from Chief Rochas Okorocha, the Imo State Governor. According to him, there is a new order that no traditional ruler in the state should speak English in any public event. He said the directive was meant to save the Igbo language from extinction.

Barr. Peter Ezeobi, the representative of Imo State on the board of the NDDC, told the people that the commission was determined to make its presence felt in all parts of the Niger Delta as quickly as possible. He assured them that as an interventionist agency, the NDDC was determined to take development to all nooks and crannies of the region.

Ezeobi, who performed the commissioning ceremony on behalf of the Managing Director of the NDDC, Dr Christian Oboh, assured the people that the amenities being provided for them would endure for a long time because the commission was known for high quality jobs. “We don’t believe in half measures and indeed, excellence is our hallmark,” he said.

The interventionist agency had earlier commissioned a three-kilometre road, with drainages for a high-brow neighbourhood in Aladinma estate of Owerri North Local Government. At that event Mrs Osato Arenyika, the NDDC director in the Owerri office, said that from now on, all completed projects of the interventionist agency would be commissioned to show the world how well it has performed. “In the past, we had taken it for granted that our projects will speak for us, but it has become necessary to also show the people what we are doing,” she said.

Arenyika charged the Saint Andrew’s Neighbourhood Association [SANA], the body coordinating the affairs of the estate, to maintain the road, as well as the street lights and the transformer also provided by the NDDC.

Engr. Michael Nwachukwu, chairman of the SANA neighbourhood, said that the NDDC has added a lot of value to the lives of the people in the area. “You have made us the envy of the town, our neighbourhood has become the prime place to live in this town, with durable roads built for us, the transformer you gave us and recently the solar street lights,” he said.

In Rivers State, it was truly a bounteous harvest of projects. In a three-day swing across the state, 46 projects were inaugurated with fanfare by the representative of Rivers State on the Board of the NDDC, Professor Ibitamuno Aminigo and the Director in the State office, Dr [Mrs] Enyia Akwagaga, on behalf of Dr. Oboh, the Managing Director of the commission.

At George-Ama in Okrika Local Government Area, the home town of Chief Rufus Ada-George, the former Governor of Rivers State, the feeling of satisfaction was palpable. The welcoming smiles were all that was needed to demonstrate that the people were satisfied with the internal roads which the NDDC built for them.

Prof Aminigo expressed delight at the quality of job done on the road. “It is a thing of joy for me because I know the value of this project to this community. The benefits are enormous for the fishermen who can now very easily access the markets with their daily takes,” he said. Aminigo said the board and management of the commission were working in consonance with the transformation agenda of President Goodluck Jonathan, with special emphasis on increasing the tempo of infrastructure development in the oil-producing region. He stated that the NDDC would henceforth commission all its completed projects to erase the wrong impression that it was not living up to expectations as an interventionist agency.

A community leader in George-Ama, Mr.James Kalipa thanked the NDDC for the road project, describing it as a sign of good things to come in the community. “We say a big thank you to the NDDC for touching the lives of our people. We expect more projects in the future.” The NDDC Director heading the Rivers State office, Dr Akwagaga said that the commission would continue to intervene in the areas of critical need for the people of the region. She urged communities where projects were commissioned to jealously guard them for the benefit of their people.

Dr. Akwagaga commended the people of Umerelu in Ikwerre Local government Area for appreciating the classroom blocks built for them and urged them to continue to be peaceful as that was the only way to attract more amenities from the NDDC.

 [ Masterweb Reports ] – On April 13, 2010, Masterweb published an article titled "Many Protest Racist Murder of Nigerian Teen" ( The article is republished below ). Michael Barry, a 26-year-old man accused of murdering the Nigerian teenager in a row with racial undertones told court he did not know his brother (now diseased) had a knife when they were after a group of young boys and girls to try to retrieve his mobile phone from them.

Barry in his testemony said before 15-year-old Toyosi Shittabey was stabbed, “I was extremely annoyed, worked up and I just wanted my phone back”. It was the sixth day of trial of Michael Barry, a resident of Ringsend, Dublin, who pled not guilty in the murder of Toyosi Shittabey on April 2, 2010, at The Boulevard, Mount Eustace, in Tyrrelstown, Dublin.

Prosecution argued Barry’s late brother Paul inflicted the stab wound on Shittabey but that Michael was an accessory to the murder. Counsel for the prosecution told the opening hearing that on the fateful day, the victim was with a "group of five black youths and four white females" and one of the girls asked for the light-up of her cigarette by Paul Barry. According to the counsel, a row ensued with "racist undertones" and name calling followed by exchange of blows. Counsel for prosecution continued that believing a phone was taken by the group, Barry and his brother Paul pursued the group in a car and confronted them at a roundabout in Tyrrelstown. Prosecution told court Paul Barry holding a knife approached one of the youths and Shittabey went to assist the youth in danger and was stabbed by paul in the chest.

The judge in his ruling believed Barry had no prior knowledge his late brother had a knife and ordered acquittal of Barry. Judge Barry White told court there was no evidence Barry knew his brother Paul was carrying a knife when he drove him to the scene where he stabbed Shittabey. The judge also cited the failure of a crucial witness to give evidence in court and the fact that Paul Barry was now dead. The judge directed a verdict of not guilty entered in the case against Michael Barry, saying: "In circumstances where the accused man's brother has died and with the refusal of a witness to co-operate, the interests of justice may not be well served in this case".



Many Protest Racist Murder of Nigerian Teen                     Date: April 13, 2010.

By Masterweb News Desk

Over 2000 people on Saturday, April 10 in Dublin marched in protest of the racist murder of a Nigerian teen. Dublin is the largest city and capital of Ireland. The march was peaceful with a large number of police presence. Toyosi Shittabey, a Muslim 15-year-old boy of Nigerian decent was on Friday, April 2 this year stabbed to death in Dublin, in what many described as racial attack. The teenager was found lying on the street, near his home, at Mount Eustace in Tyrelstown at about 2000 BST on the fateful day. He was rushed to the hospital and died short time later. Many condemned the attack, describing it as racially motivated. A Dublin teenager, Patrick Kabangu, was reported as saying: “Racism is hiding everywhere. It is in the schools. Everywhere in Ireland is racist, it is just being hidden. This country is crazy.” Another resident in a Dublin Sunday Tribune report said: "It was a racist attack. He was a lovely happy-go-lucky boy." Two men aged 23 and 38 were arrested as suspects. The Garda (Irish Police) in a press statement said an official from its Racial and Intercultural Office was working in the city amid concerns about tensions.

Shittabey, is one of six children who migrated to Ireland with their parents 11 years ago. The 15-year-old, a talented footballer who played for Shelbourne’s youth team, was walking home from the National Aquatic Centre in company of friends when they were subjected to racial name calling by two men in the Mount Eustace estate. Words were exchanged between the two groups with Shittabey’s group walking away from the scene. The duo ran into their nearby home and picked up knives with which they went after Shittabey’s group in a car. The 15-year-old told his friends to ignore the stalkers and as they walked away, Shittabey was stabbed on the chest by one of the men.

A very reliable source identified one of the assailants as Paul Barry, 38, a resident of an undisclosed address on Pearse Street in Dublin. Paul Barry according to the source, was in 2001 when he was 29, charged under Section 2 of the Prohibition of Incitement to Hatred Act, after a stabbing incident on Pearse Street the previous year. Barry who was unemployed at that time was charged along three other men - Paul Fitzpatrick (20), David Colclough (29), and Darren Kenny (31). The four, charged under Section 2 of the Prohibition of Incitement to Hatred Act were accused of using the word 'nigger' and 'niggers' during an attack, June 11, 2000 on David Richardson, 46, and his son Christian, 25, on Pearse Street.

The march in memory of Toyosi Shittabey was organized against calls for its abandonment by Nigerian Muslim community leaders who argued it may spin out of control. In addition, some of the religious leaders saw it as too political. The march which began at Parnell Square, ending at the Irish Parliament, was led by a sizeable contingent of mainly black teenagers. “Never Again” they chanted as they marched with different worded placards.

The march which mobilized a faction of Dublin black population, and both human rights and anti-racist groups, was unquantifiable display of solidarity. Different speakers drawn mainly from political parties spoke at the end of the march. Ciaran Cuffe, Green Party junior minister spoke condemning the attack in its totality.

Other speakers included Socialist MEP Joe Higgins, trade union representative Jack O'Connor of SIPTU, members of the African community and Shittabey's cousin Abisoye Shittabey. Toyosi's cousin after her speech, read a poem she wrote for the commemoration, which read: “God wanted a football player for his team in heaven. He looked down and say Toyosi Shittabey.” The crowd concurred: “So God took him by the hand . . . You are safe where you are . . . in God’s care.” Jack O’Connor spoke of the need for unity and solidarity in the wake of Shittabey’s death. “No one should attempt, on the basis of this tragic event, to promote division or disharmony on the basis of where someone lives or comes from,” he said.

When the march reached government buildings, it was addressed by Minister of State, Ciaran Cuffe. Cuffe in his speech said that the Minister for Integration should work closely with the Department of Justice to make sure those who murdered Shittabey faced penalties they deserve under the law. He continued: “There is no black Ireland or white Ireland, there is one Ireland. There is no old Ireland and new Ireland, there is one Ireland.”

Many have condemned the racist murder of Shittabey, while some disgruntled elements are engaging in cyber ranting. There are several reports of racist blogging on possible backlash from Shittabey’s murder. The bloggers, many using neo-Nazi logos in their identity boxes, discuss the possibility of a backlash from the immigrant community in the death of Toyosi Shittabey. Some of the racist comments included: "If they want trouble they will get it -- they had better get on the government/taxpayer-sponsored planes back home cos its gonna get worse for them if they stay. This country is in recession -- we don't need leeches sucking us dry."

Sub-Saharan Africans were described as "Watermelons" in one blog. One blogger describing himself as "Irish Celt" wrote: "If they start a revenge campaign I will be out on the street looking for more niggers to kill. These welfare-suckers are outbreeding us 6 to 1 and if we don't sort them out now it will only get harder, just look across the water in England, there are lots of suburbs whites can't even walk through without being attacked by niggers. We didn't ask for these niggers to come here to our country, they were not invited and they are sure as hell not welcome. This liberal social experiment on us Irish has been foistered [sic] onto us without question nor debate. Then the liberals wonder why so many of us are raging over the flood of these welfare-sucking scum into our country."

Shittabey was given a Muslim burial Thursday, April 8 after view of his body in a coffin at a Lucan funeral home. Many filed past his body in the funeral home, after the traditional Muslim washing and shrouding ceremony took place. Shittabey’s heartbroken father Segun and his brothers Sodiq, 22, and Tunde, 12, looked on as mourners paid their last respect.

The body was conveyed in a hearse, in a long funeral procession with a Garda escort, to Newcastle Cemetery in Dublin for internment. Mourners wept as the coffin was brought out of the hearse and laid on the ground. The lid was opened and the shrouded body removed amid loud wailing, weeping and calls to Allah. Nigerian Imam Shehu Adetola Adeniji from Dublin’s Sheriff Street Mosque led a short prayer. It was then lowered into the grave to the waiting arms of two imams, thence onto wooden slabs, where the 15-year-old was laid to rest on his right side facing east. Shittabey’s brothers Sodiq and Tunde, were the first to throw clay over their sibling's grave before it was covered with earth.

As mourners chanted and cried out Shittabey’s name, Imam Adeniji urged them to look at the teen's death as a lesson. "No matter how or what was the cause of his death it was destined that he was going to live just 15 years and the 15 years of his life were very glorious. It's a lesson for everybody so we can improve our lives, be law-abiding and follow the way of God," he said. “No amount of protest, no demonstration will bring back this boy’s soul. Your good mind is what he needs – not fighting, not crying,” Adeniji continued. Referring to the planned protest march, he said: “Demonstration is uncalled for. We do not approve of it. It is creating social unrest . . .”

Assistant Imam at Sheriff Street Mosque, Alhaj Saliu Adewunmi Adeniran speaking against a protest rally said: “It can instigate problems with teenagers and we are worried about where it might lead.”

Important dignitaries at the funeral included the Nigeria Ambassador to Ireland, Kemafo Nonyerem Chikwe and Irish Minister for Integration and Equality, Mary White.

Jessica Simpson is reportedly planning a secret Hawaii wedding.

The 32-year-old singer and her fiance Eric Johnson are jetting off to the tropical paradise on December 21 with a group of their closest family and friends in tow and are believed to be tying the knot in an intimate ceremony.

A source told "For the holidays, Jessica and Eric are going to Hawaii and they've invited a lot of their close friends and family. No one quite knows what is being planned, but family members are speculating that they could be planning a surprise wedding.

"Jessica and Eric had planned to get married before the end of the year, but because Jessica was helping her best pal Cacee with her wedding she got sidetracked. Then, her father's problems shattered her world and she discovered she was expecting."

Jessica - who is already expecting her second child after giving birth to daughter Maxwell Drew in May - and Eric have warned their pals they will be making a big announcement during the special getaway.

Despite her parents Joe and Tina's well-publicised decision to file for divorce in November amid rumours her father Joe is gay, the 'Fashion Star' host allegedly feels the time is right for her and Eric to make their union official and wants to get married before the New Year.

The insider added: "Jessica is certain though that she wants to get married before her baby is born, and isn't bothered if she's showing in any wedding pictures. She just wants a relaxed and intimate ceremony and has been dropping hints that the big day could be right before Christmas."


Alicia Silverstone has taken part in a new PETA campaign exposing cruelty ducks and geese suffer for their feathers.

The 'Clueless' actress appears as a spokesperson for animal rights organisation People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals in its latest effort to shed light on the inhumane practices used to pluck birds' feathers to produce down, which is then used in clothing, pillows and bedding.

She said: "No matter where it comes from, down is a product of cruelty to birds."

In the video expose released today (14.12.12), the 36-year-old actress states the live birds often have their feathers roughly yanked out of their bodies by workers which tears their flesh, which is then sown back together with a needle and thread without administering painkillers to the animals.

The video further alleges some ducks and geese used for down are also used for foie gras production - which involves the creatures being force-fed to fatten their livers.

Alicia - who is a committed vegan and previous recipient of the Sexiest Female Vegetarian award - said: "You can help stop this suffering by purchasing only down-free products and encouraging all your friends and family members to do the same. This is one simple way to make a huge difference for animals.

"Even in costumes I've said please don't use any feathers anywhere. I feel great not using down and feathers - there's no need for it at all."


Taylor Swift knows she dates men who are "dangerous" and "bad" for her.

The 23-year-old singer - who is currently romancing One Direction star Harry Styles and has previously been in relationships with Jake Gyllenhaal, Joe Jonas and John Mayer - says her new single 'I Knew You Were Trouble' is inspired by a "toxic relationship" that stems from a good girl falling for a bad boy, and she admits it is based on personal experience.

She told MTV News: "I had just gone through an experience that made me write this song about knowing the second you see someone like, 'Oh, this is going to be interesting. It's going to be dangerous, but look at me going in there anyway.

"I think that for me, it was the first time I ever kind of noticed that in myself, like when you are curious about something you know might be bad for you, but you know that you are going to go for it anyway because if you don't, you'll have greater regrets about not seeing where that would go, but I think that for me it all went along with this record that was pushing boundaries, like the sound of this record pushes boundaries, it was writing about something I hadn't written before."

The 23-year-old country star believes people go through different "phases" of what they are attracted to and just because you like bad boys now doesn't mean you still will in the future.

She added: "I think it's just like an opposites attract kind of thing. I don't know that all good girls are only attracted to all bad boys, I think everyone goes through phases as to what interests them."


Girls Aloud party in their slippers.

The five girls celebrated Sarah Harding and Kimberley Walsh both turning 31 in November with big night at a hotel and after they danced themselves into the ground they asked staff to bring them some comfortable footwear.

Kimberley - who reached the age on November 20 - revealed: "We had a bit of a wild one for mine and Sarah's birthday. I actually asked the hotel to get us some slippers so we could carry on dancing because our feet were hurting so much!

"We all had slippers on and were dancing. It was so much fun. It was a really good night."

Sarah - who turned 31 on November 17 - added: "It was a great idea, it's really quite fun (to wear slippers)."

The band have got back together after a three-year hiatus to celebrate their 10th anniversary in the music business, releasing a greatest hits album 'Ten' and announcing their 'Ten - The Hits Tour' for 2013.

The group - which is also comprised of Cheryl Cole, Nadine Coyle and Nicola Roberts - admit they can't believe they are now elder stateswomen of the pop world and wonder where the last decade went.

In a joint interview with the entire band UK station BBC Radio 1, Kimberley said: "I just think it's crazy that it's been 10 years. It just feels like yesterday, it really does."

Sarah admits a recent encounter with some Girls Aloud fans made her feel really old.

She recalled: "It's weird seeing your fans 10 years on. I met some out the other night and they were around 18 years old, and they're were like, 'You came and played at our school.' It made me feel really old."

Despite all their success and years of experience, Cheryl insists she and her bandmates are still on a learning curve.

Cheryl - who enjoyed the biggest solo success of all the girls - said: "We're still learning now, to be honest. The music industry changes so quickly and technology changes. When we started there was no Twitter, no Facebook, none of it was there ... It's like going back to the dark ages."

Jennifer Lawrence is going clay pigeon shooting with her family over the holidays.
The ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ actress admitted she is a little nervous as she has never done it before but has a secret back-up plan of bringing the bow and arrow she uses in the ‘Hunger Games’ franchise because she is a good shot.

She told The Guardian newspaper: "My brother just told me in an e-mail that we're all going to go clay pigeon shooting. He found this place where they let you shoot clay pigeons and then give you dinner afterwards. He's real excited about it. We've never done it before."

"I don't know what his shooting skills are like -- I'm sure they're better than mine. I'm going to have to bring my bow and arrow."

While Jennifer is excited to get back to Louisville, Kentucky, where her family lives, she admitted it doesn’t feel like home to her anymore.

She added: "It's where my family lives and it's where I grew up. But I don't know. These days I spend most of my time flipping between London and Los Angeles.

"I love London. I love the layout of the city and I love that it's not Manhattan or L.A. In L.A., people are only interested in your job and how much money you make. In London that doesn't matter so much. People know that there are other things to talk about."


Amanda Bynes has settled her hit-and-run cases.

The troubled former actress was due in court on December 17 to face charges relating to two separate incidents - where she allegedly ran into a car and fled in the scene - in April and August, but they were formally dismissed earlier this week.

A source told RadarOnline: "Amanda Bynes was able to reach a civil compromise in both of her hit-and run-cases.

“The two separate victims agreed to dismiss the charges after a financial settlement was reached with both... There really is no need to pursue legal charges because damage to their respective vehicles was paid for.

“Her lawyer Richard Hutton advanced the case and went in early to avoid the media.”

This will come as a relief for the ‘Easy A’ star as if she had been convicted on both counts, she could have faced up to 12 months in jail.

Along with her legal troubles, Amanda, 26, was involved in two bizarre episodes in September, locking herself in a store changing room for nearly two hours and refusing to come out and stripping off during a gym class and friends say her parents don't know what to do as Amanda has cut contact with everyone.

The insider explained: "Amanda shut them out and isn't speaking to them. She is doing everything on her own. She has no direction.

"Amanda is out of control. She won't accept help from anybody . . . She's completely lost." Brooke Mueller doesn’t want Charlie Sheen near their kids.
The former couple’s three-year-old twins were being looked after by Charlie’s ex-wife Denise Richards while Brooke undergoes rehab treatment, but Brooke was reportedly so furious when Denise asked to bring them to Charlie’s home for a party that she asked relatives to remove them from her care.

A source told gossip website TMZ: “Denise called Brooke Tuesday (11.12.12) to tell her she was taking the twins, along with her daughters, to Charlie's ‘Anger Management’ kiddie Christmas party.

"Brooke exploded, saying, ‘Absolutely not,’ adding, that she didn't want Charlie anywhere near the kids. After the conversation, Denise got a call from one of Brooke's lawyers threatening her if she dared to take the kids to the party.

“Denise didn't take the kids, but Brooke was so angry ... the next day Brooke's mother Moira knocked at Denise's door and demanded to take the two kids away. Denise obliged.”

Last Friday (07.12.12), Brooke had a short stay in hospital when the paramedics called to her house couldn't wake her up, although no illegal drugs were found in her system.

Her lawyer then confirmed on Tuesday she was seeking treatment for addiction issues with Adderall.


Prosecutors want Lindsay Lohan to serve 245 days in prison.

The 'Liz & Dick' actress failed to appear in court in Los Angeles on Wednesday (12.12.12) on three charges, including lying to police about a traffic accident in the summer – where her probation was revoked and prosecutors are seeking a lengthy stay in jail for her.

A source told RadarOnline: "Prosecutors are going after Lindsay with a vengeance because of her flagrant disregard for the law. The LA City Attorney's office will present evidence to Commissioner Jane Godfrey that Lindsay has a long storied history of lying to cops. Prosecutors want Commissioner Godfrey to sentence Lindsay to 245 days behind bars for the probation violation."

The 26-year-old troubled starlet was arraigned on Wednesday on charges that she lied to police about being behind the wheel of a car when it crashed in June on the Pacific Coast Highway.

Lindsay has been on probation since being found guilty of stealing a necklace in July 2011, for which she was sentenced to 120 days in prison and 480 hours of community service.

The actress - who has been arrested six times and spent 203 days in rehab - was previously said to believe that police have a "vendetta to bring her down" because they were allegedly pushing for her to be jailed for lying about the crash.

Lindsay claimed she wasn't driving her Porsche during the accident, but several eyewitnesses insisted she was behind the wheel.

 [ Masterweb Reports ] - "Yum". That's what hip hop fans will be saying because the hunger for Trybe Records' lyricist, Rukus, to release his debut single is not quite over, but on his latest freestyle "One Man Cypher", he's given rap fans and casual listeners a taste of his aggressive delivery and witty lyricism. Raw, unshaven and accompanied by a gritty black and white video to match his gravelly voice and grimy demeanor, Rukus takes his listeners on a rollercoaster ride for almost 3 minutes straight while hurling metaphors and entendres at the camera. While fans anticipate his The Hunger 2 mixtape, Rukus continues to ready his debut album, with singles expected in early 2013.
Rukus made a splash on the scene in 2006 when the hit single “African Queen” received airplay in the U.S., U.K., Nigeria, and Ghana and was chosen as part of a compilation album with proceeds to aid in the fight against poverty.

Renee Zellweger is dating Sheryl Crowe's ex-boyfriend.

The Oscar-winning actress was spotted kissing musician Doyle Bramhall II on Wednesday (12.12.12) at Los Angeles' LAX airport and sources say the couple - who went to college together - are smitten with each other. One told Us Weekly magazine: "They went to college together. It's going really well." Doyle previously dated singer Sheryl for two years after meeting on tour while he was her guitarist.

Renee's last serious relationship was with actor Bradley Cooper, but they split in March 2011, with sources claiming she wanted marriage while he didn't.

One said: "There is no doubt both of these people have not had a great experience being married, however, Renee was ready to give it another try with Bradley. She's 41 and has an Oscar. She's starting to think about children and settling down while Bradley loves his life exactly as it is. It's taken him a long time to be an A-list actor, and he's enjoying all the perks, fame and opportunities that have come his way following 'The Hangover'."

Renee, 43, was previously married to country singer Kenny Chesney, while Bradley was once wed to actress Jennifer Esposito.


Sir Mick Jagger's love letters have sold at auction for£187,250.

The 10 handwritten notes had been expected to fetch between£70,000 and £100,000 when they were sold in London on Wednesday (12.12.12) but auctioneers Sotheby's said a private collector bidding by phone wanted to pay the high price.

The letters were written by the 69-year-old rocker in 1969 from the Australian set of his movie 'Ned Kelly' and were sent to his former girlfriend Marsha Hunt, the mother of his first child Karis and inspiration behind The Rolling Stones' hit single 'Brown Sugar'.

Marsha, 66, has previously revealed the correspondence chronicles their "delicate love affair" and they discuss topical subjects of the moment like the first moon landing and John Lennon and Yoko Ono's relationship.

Sotheby's books specialist Gabriel Heaton said the collection - which also included song lyrics and a Rolling Stones playlist -show a "poetic and self-aware" young Mick.

He added: "They provide a rare glimpse of Jagger that is very different from his public persona: passionate but self-contained, lyrical but with a strong sense of irony."


Hugh Hefner wants to stay with Crystal Harris until he dies.

The 86-year-old Playboy founder said he doesn't care about the 60-year age difference between him and his 26-year-old fiancee and is sure she is the right person for him.

He tweeted: "The dramatic age difference between difference & Crystal & me really doesn't matter. Whatever time I have left, we want to spend together."

As an early Christmas treat, Hugh managed to secure Crystal membership to the exclusive Club 33 at Disneyland in Anaheim, California.

He tweeted: "Crystal became a member of Club 33 at Disneyland today. A Christmas gift to my darling that we can share together."

In response, Crystal simply tweeted: "Happiness is limitless."

Hugh - who has been married twice previously, to Mildred Williams from 1949 to 1959 and Kimberley Conrad 1989 to 2010 - and Crystal recently reunited after she initially called off their engagement just days before their wedding in June 2011.

They are now planning to tie the knot again on New Year's Eve (31.12.12) and the former Playboy Playmate of the Month has been flashing a huge new diamond engagement ring. She has also changed her Twitter handle to Crystal Hefner.

Speaking of why she broke off the engagement, Crystal previously said: "I got cold feet. Over time I just realised it wasn't for me, it was all happening so fast.

"I actually spoke to Hef about it before I left and we both came to the decision that getting married wasn't the best for either of us."


Lindsay Lohan faces having some of her prized possessions sold off because she can't pay her bills.

The troubled actress has fallen behind on monthly payments to a storage company, and now owes around $16,000, which could lead to items inside her locker - including designer clothes, family heirlooms and "potentially embarrassing" articles - being sold off at auction if the bill isn't paid by the end of this month. The account has been branded delinquent and the locker can't be opened until the balance is paid off in full.

According to gossip website TMZ, the 'Liz & Dick' star -whose bank accounts have been frozen by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) over unpaid taxes of $233,904 for 2009 and 2010 - has asked friends and family to help out with the payment but so far no one has agreed.

While the 26-year-old star - who also owes around £8,000 in rent for her Beverly Hills mansion - was recently given £100,000 from pal Charlie Sheen to help pay her tax bill, the actor recently complained she hasn't even said thank you.

He said: "She got shorted and I found out, so I said, 'Here'. I'm still waiting for a text to say 'Thank you'. Anything you know?"

Additionally, the 'Mean Girls' star - whose probation was revoked yesterday (12.12.12) after she was formally charged with lying to police - is also said to have enlisted help from her younger sister Ali Lohan, 18, to help sell some of her designer clothes to raise more money.


Cate Blanchett took her children onto the set of the 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey'.

The Oscar-winning actress brought her three boys Dashiell, 11, Roman, eight, and four-year-old Ignatius with her during the shooting of the fantasy film in New Zealand and says her children were enchanted by Sir Peter Jackson's impressive set pieces.

Speaking on British talk show 'Lorraine', Cate - who reprised her 'Lord of the Rings' role as Elf ruler Galadriel in the movie -explained: "They're getting to the point where they're not so portable and they choose to do less so it's been great to be with them. It's a pretty exciting place backstage on a film set, especially when you're young.

"I flew over for eight days and the boys came with me and it was wonderful for them to see the film set. They were so excited because they saw the 3D cameras ... they saw all the stunt guys and saw how things are put together."

Cate and her husband Andrew Upton are full-time artistic directors of the Sydney Theatre Company, so the statuesque 43-year-old beauty confessed filming the 'Lord of the Rings' prequel was a welcome break from her daily responsibilities.

She laughed: "My husband and I run a theatre company and that's been our focus so it was nice to escape for eight days to do this project. I haven't made a film for quite a long time."

Cate attended 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' royal premiere in London's Leicester Square on Wednesday night (12.12.12) and she was joined on the special green carpet by her co-stars Martin Freeman, Andy Serkis and James Nesbitt as well as director Sir Peter Jackson and Prince William.
