Eddie Bubar, who owns Eddie's Pharmacy, reveals he filled more than 100 prescriptions for the Clueless star, her husband Simon Monjack and her mum Sharon between January 2008 and August 2009 under various aliases.
The pharmacy boss has told investigators a courier picked the various prescriptions up in an envelope approximately every two weeks with the name 'Lola Manilow Murphy' written on it. He tells TMZ.com that Lola was Murphy's pseudonym.
Bubar cut the trio off four months before the actress' December (09) death, partly because he believed they were using multiple pharmacies to fill scripts, according to the website.
He says, "We thought there was going to be an accident there."
But Monjack insists he and his late wife were the ones who ended the relationship with Bubar and Eddie's Pharmacy.
Bubar's comments come just a day after Monjack told U.S. news show Access Hollywood he never saw his late wife use drugs, stating, "Brittany was someone that had never used a drug in her life."
Medications were found in the actress' system at the time of her death, but her 20 December (09) death has been ruled an accident following an autopsy.
There ain't no place for bad tummies on a desert island. So Ramona Gray, a 29-year-old chemist from New Jersey, found out on Wednesday night's installment of "Survivor."
Gray, who got seasick within the CBS game show's very first few minutes, was the fourth castaway voted off everybody's favorite "Lord of the Flies" experiment.
Gray tried to remain upbeat about being cut out of the potential $1 million winner's pot.
"I learned that I could survive in this totally demanding environment," she tells CBS' "Survivor" Web site www.cbs.com. "And, I mean, this is a tough place. If I could make it here, I feel I can go back to the real world and survive almost anything."
LOS ANGELES, April 14, 2000 - Who are Gary Walkow, Seth Zvi Rosenfeld, and Adrienne Shelly? They are among some of the unknown to little-known to cult-known filmmakers hoping to get noticed, publicize their low-budget films, and in some cases, find distributors, at the 6th Annual Los Angeles Independent Film Festival, which kicked off Thursday night at a low-watt event here at the Director's Guild of America.
Through Tuesday, 35 feature films and 45 shorts will be screened at the fest -- with the majority of the works directed, produced and starring mainstream unknowns.
The caliber of these upstarts notwithstanding, the LAIFF also will feature films featuring (relatively) more recognizable names. For instance: hip-hop impresarios Black Thought, DJ Cut Chemist and Mos Def in the music documentary "Freestyle;" John Leguizamo, Rosie Perez and Marisa Tomei in "King of the Jungle;" and Courtney Love in "Beat," to exhaust the very short list.
Perhaps the biggest name of them all here is probably Joe Mantegna -- not as an actor, but a first-time director. And like most of the folks who came out Thursday to mingle, Mantegna was here to promote his directorial debut, "The Lakeboat," which opened the six-day festival with its world premiere.
Based on a script by David Mamet ("Glengarry Glen Ross"), the flick is a coming-of-age story about a man's seafaring life abroad a traveling freighter. And given the super-indie (translation: non-establishment) orientation of the festival, what brought his relatively non-indie film to LAIFF?
"Well, I was asked," joked Mantegna Thursday.
"To me it seems like it's kinda a good festival here -- and why shouldn't there be one? To me it's like if you're in Phoenix or Detroit there should be an auto show. I think it's great. I'm happy that my film's opening here."
Similar sentiments were echoed by LAIFF organizer Rich Raddon, who sees the L.A.-based festival as a venue designed to nurture the growth of not only independent films, but American ones specifically.
"Our mission is to provide independent filmmakers a place to showcase their work to Los Angeles audiences." Raddon told Hollywood.com. "[And] we definitely have a strong agenda have a strong agenda to promote independent cinema, and some of the festivals don't necessarily do that."
