Things Just Keep Getting Better for Katie Rees

Katie Reese Las Vegas Arrest Mug Shot Pictures, Photos

Katie Rees, the former Miss Nevada who was stripped of her crown after some incriminating photos hit the web, was arrested this morning in Las Vegas for allegedly assaulting a police officer.

Rees was pulled over shortly before 3:00 AM for a traffic violation. According to Las Vegas police, when they attempted to arrest her, “she became physically aggressive towards the officer.”

Cops told TMZ that they were just going to cite Rees, but when she lost her shit, they took her in.

I think someone else needs to be sentenced to rehab.

Oh, wait, I forgot. Rehab’s not cool anymore. Send her to a psych ward!

Rehab Is So Last Year


The new place to see and be seen is your local hospital’s psych ward.

Following in the famous footsteps of Justin Chambers and Britney Spears, Delta Burke checked herself into a psychiatric hospital last week, voluntarily.

She’s seeking treatment for symptoms of depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder and “hoarding.”

Sheesh, doesn’t anybody just go to rehab anymore?

Statement from the Family of Heath Ledger

“We remain humble as parents and a family, among millions of people worldwide who may have suffered the tragic loss of a child. Few can understand the hollow, wrenching, and enduring agony parents silently suffer when a child predeceases them. Today’s results put an end to speculation, but our son’s beautiful spirit and enduring memory will forever remain in our hearts.

While no medications were taken in excess, we learned today the combination of doctor-prescribed drugs proved lethal for our boy. Heath’s accidental death serves as a caution to the hidden dangers of combining prescription medication, even at low dosage.

Our family enjoyed an extremely happy two week visit with Heath just prior to the New Year. Those recent precious days will stay with us forever. We as a family feel privileged to have some of his amazing magic moments captured in film. To most of the world Heath was an actor of immeasurable talent and promise. To those who knew him personally, Heath was a consummate artist whose passions also included photography, music, chess and directing. We knew Heath as a loving father, as our devoted son, and as a loyal and generous brother and friend.

We treasure our beautiful granddaughter Matilda (to our dear Michelle) as well as an unbelievably wonderful network of close friends, forever, around the world. Families rarely experience the uplifting, warm and massive outpouring of grief and support as have we, from every corner of the planet. This has deeply and profoundly touched our hearts and lives. We are eternally grateful.

At this moment we respectfully request the worldwide media allow us time to grieve privately, without the intrusions associated with press and photography.”

Bouncing Back



Christina Aguilera made her first public appearance since delivering her baby boy yesterday at a Best Buy in West Hollywood.

She was promoting the release of her new DVD set, “Back To Basics: Live And Down Under,” and also promoting her post-pregnancy boobage.

She looks tired.

BREAKING: Heath Ledger Died of Prescription Drug Overdose


Surprise, surprise.

The New York City medical examiner’s office released the official cause of death today.

Mr. Heath Ledger died as the result of acute intoxication by the combined effects of oxycodone, hydrocodone, diazepam, temazapam, alprazolam, and doxylamine.

We have concluded that the manner of death is accident, resulting from the abuse of prescription medications.

The drugs are the generic names for the OxyContin painkiller, the anti-anxiety drug Valium, Xanax, an anti-anxiety drug, and the sleep aids Restoril and Unisom. Hydrocodone is another name for ibuprofen.

Be careful out there, kids!!
