9Kevin Costner Prepares to Release His First Country Album

At the age of 53, Kevin Costner is ready to become a rock star. Well, a country star, at least.

Kevin Costner will fulfill a longtime dream in November when he releases his first album with his country-rock band, Modern West.

The actor, who told PEOPLE that his unlikely turn as a lead singer elicited double-takes when the band played a NASCAR event in July, has been playing music with some of his band mates for nearly 20 years.

An early incarnation of the band (once called Roving Boy) stalled when Costner’s movie career took off, but in the past few years he’s devoted more time to music. “I remember looking out into the crowd, thinking, ‘This just feels right,’ ” Costner, 53, said in a statement about an early performance with Modern West.

Apparently Costner co-wrote six of the songs on the upcoming albums. Some of the tracks are expected to hit country radio as early as this week.

Will you be buying a Kevin Costner country album?

10Looks Like Change is Afoot at Chez Hefner

Finally the members of Hef’s harem are weighing in — honestly — on the rumors that their menage-a-quatre is coming to a grinding halt.

Says Kendra in a new interview:

“There are lot of changes going on … people are going through changes. There’s a lot of rumors about me moving on, Holly moving on … it’s really sad. I mean, it’s only sad because Hef has to deal with it, and Hef gets really emotional because he really loves us. He is definitely a softie, so it’s really sad seeing him go through this stuff. [But] he keeps it cool, and he has a lot of girlfriends around now to keep him happy.”

Heh.

It’s like The Girls Next Door: The New Class. Everyone’s different except for Mr. Belding and Screech. Mr. Belding is clearly Hugh Hefner. Who’s the Screech of the Playboy mansion? I say Kendra’s little brother, the kid for whom the term “wigger” was invented. Let’s keep him around and make him a star. I just wanna see what happens.

21Total Hottie Hugh Laurie Robbed!

Hugh Laurie, the super-sexy star of House, recently had his home robbed.

HOUSE star HUGH LAURIE has been left “unnerved” after his Los Angeles home was ransacked by thieves.

The British actor had his laptop and a number of other personal items taken in the raid on his new $4 million (GBP2.2 million) Hollywood Hills mansion earlier this month (Sep08).

Laurie, who relocated to the U.S. in 2004 after landing the role of Dr. Gregory House in the hit medical drama, and his wife Jo were asleep when his house was targeted. No one was harmed in the break-in.
Laurie, 49, revealed the news of the burglary after arriving late for a U.S. TV interview to promote the forthcoming series of House.

After apologising to the TV crew, he said, “We were in bed when it (the burglary) happened. I came down this morning and said, ‘Where’s the laptop?’ Then we realised.”

The star is the latest celebrity in the area to fall victim to burglars – it is believed the same group of thieves are responsible for raids at the homes of singer Faith Hill and her husband Tim MCGraw, and movie studio boss Sherry Lansing, who all live nearby.

A police source says, “The raid on Hugh Laurie was very similar to ones we have been investigating in that area. It is lucky that he did not disturb the burglars or we could have been looking at something much more serious.”

You know, I read this several times, and I just kept thinking the same things over and over again:

1) He’s married??? That bastard!!!! and
2) I wonder if there was a sex tape on that laptop.

You guys, I’ve been doing this job too long.
