    By: Lindsey DiMattina Sep 19, 2012
    Hollywood lost a valued member of its community on Friday when actor Stephen Dunham passed away. According to Variety.com, Dunham — who will probably be best remembered for his role as Edward Pillows in DAG — died on Friday, just several days after suffering a heart attack. Dunham was just 48 years old. During his life, Dunham appeared in many TV shows including Hot Properties, Hot in Cleveland, True Jackson, VP, Oh, Grow Up, and What I Like About You. But his talents weren't just limited to television — Dunham also had many roles in movies. He had a supporting role in The Mummy, Catch Me If You Can, Traffic, and Monster in Law. Dunham last appeared on the big screen in Oliver Stone's Savages — but his final film, Paranormal Activity 4, will be coming out in October. Dunham is survived by his wife and Paranormal Activity 4 costar Alexondra Lee, his father, mother, brother, and sister. Follow Lindsey on Twitter @LDiMat.

  • Lindsay Lohan Arrested for Leaving the Scene of an Accident
    By: Lindsey DiMattina Sep 19, 2012
    Wasn't Lindsay Lohan the one who was just talking smack about Amanda Bynes constantly getting in trouble behind the wheel? Well, maybe Lohan shouldn't have been so quick to judge, because karma is a b***h. Lohan was arrested on Wednesday morning for leaving the scene of a accident in New York City, a public information officer for the New York City Police Department tells Hollywood.com. She was arrested for "leaving the scene of a minor vehicle accident with a pedestrian," the officer says. It all allegedly went down at the Dream Downtown when Lohan entered the parking area, where she allegedly struck a male and then decided to proceed into the hotel instead of waiting at the scene. She was arrested when she exited the hotel about an hour and a half later. The officer relays that the incident occurred around 1 AM, and Lohan was arrested at about 2:30 AM. The police confirm that the victim reportedly suffered a knee injury and was taken to Bellevue Hospital. The extent of the injury is not known at this time. Lohan, on the other hand, was arrested — but she didn't have to spend the night in jail. She was released with a desk appearance ticket, which means she didn't have to pay bail and was given a date to appear in court. The police also informed us that alcohol was not a factor involved in this incident. "While some of the facts are still being gathered, it appears that this is much ado about nothing," Lohan's rep Steve Honig said in a statement to Hollywood.com. "We are confident this matter will be cleared up in the coming weeks and the claims being made against Lindsay will be proven untrue." Follow Lindsey on Twitter @LDiMat.

    By: Lindsey DiMattina Sep 18, 2012
    Just two weeks after giving birth to son Finn, Tori Spelling is back in the hospital again and recovering from emergency surgery. "Tori Spelling underwent emergency surgery over the weekend due to complications from her C section," Spelling's rep tells Hollwood.com. According to TMZ, the 39-year-old actress was rushed to the hospital on Saturday — but now it sounds like she is doing much better. "She remains in the hospital and is resting comfortably," Spelling's rep says. Hopefully Spelling can get home soon to spend time with her new son, who was born on Aug. 30. He is her fourth child with husband Dean McDermott. She also is mother to Liam, 5, Stella, 4, and Hattie, who will turn 1 on Oct. 10.

  • Shaun White, Olympic Snowboarder, Arrested for Public Intoxication — PIC
    By: Lindsey DiMattina Sep 18, 2012
    When Shaun White isn't racing down Olympic slopes on his snowboard, well, let's just say it sounds like he needs a babysitter. The 26-year-old Olympic snowboarder was arrested and charged with vandalism and public intoxication in Nashville, Tenn. at the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel early Sunday morning, the Metro Nashville Police Department confirms to Hollywood.com in a press release. According to the Police Department's press release, officers arrived on the scene at 2 AM after receiving a call about an intoxicated man, allegedly White. White reportedly "pulled a fire alarm at the hotel which caused the evacuation of all guests," and a hotel employee stated that he witnessed White "destroy a hotel phone." White then allegedly tried to flee the scene via taxicab, but a citizen kept the cab from leaving after saying that he "was calling the police." Upon hearing the conversation, White reportedly "kicked the citizen and fled on foot." According to the citizen, he chased White down and White fell into a fence. White was reportedly transferred to the hospital and released later that afternoon. The officers that reported to the scene said that White "appeared to be extremely intoxicated and smelled strongly of alcohol." And after White refused to sign the misdemeanor citations, arrest warrants were issued that officially charged White with vandalism and public intoxication. Follow Lindsey on Twitter @LDiMat.

  • Kate Middleton Wins: French Judge Bans Further Publication of Topless Pics
    By: Lindsey DiMattina Sep 18, 2012
    Kate Middleton had a major win on Tuesday when a French judge granted her an injunction preventing the further publication of topless pics of the Duchess of Cambridge, the UK's MailOnline reports. The ruling in favor of the royal family prevents the French magazine Closer — which first published the pics of Middleton sunbathing in her bikini sans a top — from distributing, selling, or printing the compromising shots. While the magazine can no longer print the photos (or additional copies of the controversial issue), the ruling also requires that the pictures be taken down from the magazine's website. The pictures also cannot be published in any other French publication — and a judge has forbidden the publication from selling the images across the world. Closer has 24 hours from Tuesday's ruling to hand over the pictures to the royal family. If this isn't done in the said time frame, the magazine will be fined 10,000 euros. And if the magazine decides to disobey the ruling and sell or print the pics, it will also be fined the same amount for each day that it doesn't adhere to the court's injunction. Middleton is also to be awarded 2,000 euros in legal fees. Prince William and Middleton have also filed a criminal complaint for the invasion of their privacy. This could cause Closer to be fined 36,000 pounds and the editor in charge of the issue to serve a year in prison. Additionally, the royals have filed against "persons unknown" — the photographer that took the inappropriate shots in the first place. This person has yet to be identified.

  • 'Weeds' Comes to an End with Season 8's Highest Ratings
    By: Lindsey DiMattina Sep 17, 2012
    After eight seasons, Weeds fans remained loyal to the Botwin family as they tuned in for the series finale of their beloved Showtime show Sunday night. While the numbers weren't as stellar as last season's bow, Sunday's episode still pulled an all-season high, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Fans that have stayed in touch with Nancy Botwin's crazy, drug-dealing life that has taken her from California to New York to Connecticut and back to California wanted to catch the last glimpse of the erratic mother before she made her TV departure. Played twice, the one-hour Weeds series finale special debuted at 10 PM with 864,000 viewers turning in (the season 8 premiere drew in 805,000 viewers). Airing again at 11, the show was able to capture a total audience of 1.28 million for the night. On average, this season reportedly drew in 3.2 million viewers per epiosde, the same as Season 7's average. But after seven years, the finale's numbers still weren't as strong as seasons seven, six, and five's season highs.  Follow Lindsey on Twitter @LDiMat.

  • Amanda Bynes Finally Loses Her Car to the Impound Lot
    By: Lindsey DiMattina Sep 17, 2012
    What happens when a person doesn't obey a judge's orders? He or she gets in trouble. And that's exactly what happened to Amanda Bynes over the weekend when she decided to ignore the judge's ruling not to get behind the wheel. Bynes, who is currently battling charges of DUI and two hit-and-runs, was pulled over Sunday morning, People reports. And the troubled 26-year-old actress finally had to say goodbye to her car as it headed to the impound lot. Burbank Airport Police reveal that Bynes got in trouble for allegedly driving with a suspended license when she was stopped on Sunday. While the actress wasn't arrested, she was given a misdemeanor citation. Every day, it seems like Bynes is getting in trouble with her car. Even Lindsay Lohan, who has had her fair share of car troubles, is getting fed up with Bynes' reckless road manners. "Why did I get put in jail and a nickelodeon star has had NO punishment(s) so far?" Lohan tweeted Sunday evening. How long is it going to take for the law to put baby in the corner? At this point, Bynes' car troubles are just getting ridiculous. Follow Lindsey on Twitter @LDiMat.

  • More Kate Middleton Topless Pics Published — REPORT
    By: Lindsey DiMattina Sep 15, 2012
    We hoped that we would never have to read the headline, "Kate Middleton Topless Photos," again — but sadly that wish didn't come true. Just after news broke that French gossip magazine Closer published pictures of the Duchess of Cambridge sunbathing sans her bikini top, another European publication has decided to run the photos as well. The Irish Daily Star edition in the Republic of Ireland published the same pictures, BBC News reports. While the pictures have already caused an uproar around the world, the Editor of the newspaper, Mike O'Kane, doesn't seem to think that the Middleton is different from any other celebrity. "The duchess would be no different to any other celeb pics we would get in, for example Rihanna or Lady Gaga," he said. "She's not the future queen of Ireland so really the only place this is causing fury seems to be in the UK."  "She's married into the royal family, she's one of the most photographed people in the world, and she decides to partially disrobe on a balcony where it can be seen from a public road and she's stunned now, or the Palace are annoyed that people are interested in this," O'Kane added. "Of course people are going to be interested in this." The people that pay O'Kane aren't happy with the editor's decision to print the pics. Mimi Turner, Northern & Shell's communications director, said that the company is "abhorred" by the publication's decision. "We, like St James's Palace, believe [it] to be a grotesque invasion of their privacy," she stated. While no publications in the United Kingdom have run the pics, Italian magazine Chi has claimed that it will place the shots in a 26-page special issue this coming week. A royal spokeswoman wouldn't comment if they have plans to sue Chi except "to say that all proportionate responses will be kept under review." She also gave this statement: "Any such publication would serve no purpose other than to cause further, entirely unjustifiable upset to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who were enjoying time alone together in the privacy of a relative's home."
