Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina in a coma after being found unconscious in a bathtub

Well, this is a terrible story. Bobbi Kristina, the 22-year-old daughter of the late Whitney Houston and Bobbi Brown, was found unconscious in the bathtub of her Georgia home early Friday morning. She was rushed to a local hospital and is said to be recovering, but it’s an eerily scary (and sad) situation.

From The Telegraph:

Bobbi Kristina Brown, 22, was found by her husband and a friend at her home in Georgia, USA, yesterday morning. The incident took place just two weeks before the third anniversary of her mother’s death, who died in a bathtub at a Los Angeles hotel.

A spokeswoman for the Roswell Police Department in Georgia said Mrs Brown was given cardiopulmonary resuscitation until rescuers arrived and added that the incident remained under investigation.

Doctors have now stabilised her breathing and she has been transferred to the intensive care unit of North Fulton Hospital.

Oh man, how terrible. It may just be a strange coincidence, but part of me feels like the bathtub aspect of this is just too much like Whitney’s death to ignore, and makes me wonder if this wasn’t intentional. It does feel somewhat inappropriate to speculate on whether or not this was a suicide attempt (or perhaps just an unintentional drug overdose), but either way, I think it’s pretty clear that Bobbi Kristina needs some help that she’s just not getting.

TMZ actually reported that Bobbi Kristina was placed in a medically induced coma yesterday afternoon for swelling of the brain, and Bobby Brown and Tyler Perry (I know, don’t ask) are at her bedside, so she’s still in serious trouble.

The Daily Beast did a great piece that’s worth reading; it examines Bobbi Kristina’s life in the years following Whitney’s death (and even while Whitney was alive) and when you look at the whole picture, it’s a really sad one. The question is, can you bounce back from the kind of life she has had to live a healthy, “normal” one yourself? This seems to be something Bobbi Kristina is struggling with, and I really hope she’s okay.

Bruce Jenner IS transitioning to become a woman, a source “confirms”

bruce jenner

The world can’t just leave Bruce Jenner alone. Is he transitioning to be a woman? Is he “on a journey”? Ever since he started growing his hair a bit longer, the world has been going nuts speculating about what’s going on in his private life, and now it seems like People has got the REAL SCOOP (yes, that’s sarcasm).

“Bruce is transitioning to a woman,” says a source close to the family. “He is finally happy and his family is accepting of what he’s doing. He’s in such a great space. That’s why it’s the perfect time to do something like this.”

“He’s being very smart about and also respectful about his transition,” the insider says. “Instead of completely shocking everyone, his changes have been subtle, and his family has had the chance to slowly get used to his new looks and life.”

And his family, including children Cassandra, 34, Burt, 36 (with ex wife Chrystie Crownover ) and sons Brandon, 33 and Brody, 31 (with ex wife Linda Thompson), as well as daughters Kendall, 19 and Kylie, 17 (with Kris Jenner) are adjusting to the new Bruce. “The [kids'] concern seems to be Bruce’s happiness, and he acts very pleased with his new life,” says the insider.

Admits the family source: “It is an intense thing. Of course not everyone is 100 percent on board. Different people have different reactions. But everybody loves him.”

“The family is really giving this space and time to Bruce. This is his story and they want him to tell the world the way he wants,” the source close to the family says. “They really want to empower him to tell his story so that hopefully he can help other people too. That’s the goal.”

Now it appears that Jenner, finally happy in his own skin, will soon be ready to live life out in the open. “He has come out to those closest to him,” says the family source. “He’s so happy and excited. He gets to lay down a huge bag of bricks. He’s been through a dark period and is coming out on the other side.”

So basically, People feels okay paying an intern to make up quotes from a “source” to make another headline about Bruce’s gender identity? That, or the Kardashian/Jenner clans know some really shitty people who are quite happy to give over private details about their lives in exchange for a hundred bucks… which seems just as likely, now that I think about it.

Heidi Montag’s father arrested for child sex abuse and incest

heidi montag

Holy shit. Take a look at this prize piece – it’s Heidi Montag‘s father, Bill Montag, who was arrested this week in Aspen for child sex abuse and incest that happened over a span of YEARS in the ’90s. Heidi apparently knows who the accuser is and thinks she’s not credible and is just out to destroy the family, but uh… something tells me there might be some truth to things.

From TMZ:

Bill Montag was picked up by Aspen cops Thursday night. Authorities say the sexual abuse continued until the girl turned 17. The complaint says he abused the child at least 50 times.

As for the time frame … the alleged abuse occurred between 1993 and 1998. It does not line up with Heidi or her sister Holly.

According to the docs, Bill Montag “groomed her with back rubs in her bedroom in the basement of their home,” and escalated by attempting to insert a vibrator into her vagina. At age 16 he began performing oral sex. It then gets extremely graphic.

The documents describe the last incident in 1998, when he allegedly crawled into bed with her, tried to pull down her underwear and said, “I want to have sex with you.” Authorities say she rebuffed him by saying, “Get the hell out of my room, no!” And he responded, “I thought that’s what you wanted. I thought you loved me the way I love you.”

What the hell? This is disgusting, and the mere sight of this guy is seriously giving me the willies. No no no.

Val Kilmer hospitalized with possible throat tumor

val kilmer

There are conflicting stories – as in, TMZ says it’s a throat tumor and the actor himself says it isn’t – as to why Val Kilmer was hospitalized this week in UCLA’s intensive care unit. He’s okay now (or so it seems), but it seems like a pretty scary situation.

From TMZ:

Val Kilmer was rushed to a hospital this week after he began bleeding from the throat … and we’re told it’s a throat tumor.

Law enforcement sources tell us paramedics rushed to his Malibu home Monday night after someone called 911 and reported the bleeding.

The “Top Gun” star was taken to UCLA Medical Center, Santa Monica. Doctors performed surgery and he’s currently recovering.

We’re told family members have been upset because they feel Val has ignored the problem and allowed it to get worse.

Either Val is feeling a bit embarrassed about things or TMZ has got the wrong end of the stick for once, because he took to Facebook this morning to set the record straight:

Thank you for all your sweet support. But I have not had a tumor, or a tumor operations, or any operation. I had a complication where the best way to receive care was to stay under the watchful eye of the ucla ICU. Friends have assisted who know my spiritual convictions and have been most sensitive and kind for the extra effort in making sure there’s minimum gossip and silly talk. I am praying for a speedy return to the boards as they say. God bless you all and please don’t worry. Love and deep affection , Val

Huh, I don’t really know what any of this means, but I’m glad he seems to be okay.

Teresa Giudice is getting buff in prison

teresa giudice

Last year, Teresa Giudice was sentenced to 15 months behind bars for tax fraud and whatever other bullshit she was up to with her husband, but the judge allowed her to spend the holidays at home with her family and head to prison in the new year. Now that she’s there, she’s making the most of her time and getting buff in the prison gym, apparently.

“She’s getting in the best shape of her life,” an insider tells Us of the Bravo-lebrity, 42, currently serving a 15-month sentence for fraud. “Every night she hits the gym and has been asking friends to send her workout videos.”

If only they could send her a personal porta-potty, too. “Teresa says the bathrooms are the hardest part of jail because they’re filthy and have no privacy,” a second source tells Us.

Apparently Teresa is working as a laundry maid while there and she hopes when she gets out that she’ll be able to get her own cooking show and land the cover of a magazine. She writes down her goals on a daily basis to keep her focused, which… I mean, hey, she’s in jail. Can’t knock whatever people have to do to get through shit.

Florence Henderson is 80 and sleeping with a chiropractor from Florida

florence henderson

How awesome is Florence Henderson? She looks absolutely incredible for any age, let alone 80, and she’s living it up with her “friend with benefits”, a chiropractor from Florida who she knocks boots with whenever the feeling’s right. He’s not her only lover, of course, and she’s keeping it moving and feeling great. LOVE IT!

From Closer Weekly:

“I still feel like I’m 28,” the star, who will celebrate her 81st birthday on Valentine’s Day, tells ‘Closer’ in an exclusive interview and photo shoot in Marina del Rey, Calif. “I do anything and everything to stay active because, let’s face it, I am not slowing down anytime soon!”

And that includes her sex life! “It’s foolish to think that older people don’t enjoy sex. It’s a big myth,” she confides to ‘Closer.’ “There is no age limit on the enjoyment of sex. It keeps getting better,” Florence says, adding, “You learn to do things with more experience, intelligence and the ability to choose more wisely.”

Though Florence — who is a spokeswoman for ‘City of Hope’ cancer research center — admits she’s not looking to marry, she does enjoy putting herself out there. “I like to date, but not every date needs to lead to marriage. I actually have a friend with benefits,” she confesses to ‘Closer.’ “He lives in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and is a chiropractor. I really enjoy his company, but I am sure he sees other people, as I do.

Apparently Flo likes men in their 60s because the younger ones are the only ones who can keep up with her. AMAZING! This is the attitude to have in life. So glad Florence Henderson is alive and well and is doing her to the fullest.
