"Real Housewife" Kim Richards goes back to rehab

“Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star goes to rehab for the second time

“Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Kim Richards has entered rehab once again.
Kim, aunt to reality stars Paris and Nicky Hilton, has reportedly entered an undisclosed treatment center, ETOnline reports.

Following Season 1 finale of the show in January, which featured a rough argument with her sister Kyle, Richards, who has become known for her unpredictable behavior on the Bravo series, checked into rehab only to leave a week later.

Kyle Richards said in the Season 1 finale, “You are a liar…[and] you are an alcoholic! Yeah, that’s right. I’ve said it now and everybody knows.”

Recently castmate Adrienne Maloof appeared on “The Wendy Williams Show” with her husband, Dr. Paul Nassif. Williams asked the pair about Kim’s mental health.

Dr. Nassif said, “When you’re on numerous medications for moods, and you combine them all together, and possibly the dosing may be off, it can cause some of those symptoms of the eyes a little glassy, a little bit of slurring of the words…just looking like you’re not completely with it.”

Matthew Barnaby arrested for DWI

ESPN hockey analyst arrested for second time this year

ESPN hockey analyst Matthew Barnaby was arrested Monday morning and charged with DWI after being pulled over for driving erratically in Clarence, N.Y.

Barnaby’s Porsche was missing a front tire and was sparking as it ran on in the front rim.

According to WGRZ, Erie County Sheriff’s Department, the former Buffalo Sabres player failed several sobriety tests and refused to take a breath test, which immediately cause his license to get revoked.

A spokesperson for ESPN said that the network is looking into the incident.
Earlier on Sunday, Barnaby tweeted a photo of himself watching the Jets-Redskins game with some friends at a bar.

According to the Huffington Post, Barnaby, 38, was arrested earlier this year after an incident with his estranged wife. He pleaded not guilty to charges of criminal mischief, criminal trespass and harassment.

Barnaby was ordered to complete 500 hours of community service and continue anger management counseling.

Herman Cain suspends candicacy, endorsement up next?

Media reports suggest Cain will endorse Newt Gingrich

Since Herman Cain suspended his presidential campaign due to a slew of sexual assault and extramarital affair accusations, the rumors have been circulating about whom the former GOP candidate will endorse.

The latest rumor is that Cain will announce an endorsement for current front-runner Newt Gingrich.

Cain’s departure from the race has shaped it more clearly into a match-up between Gingrich and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney.

According to Reuters, Gingrich seemed to be the more logical choice for a Cain endorsement because his campaign appealed to the same conservative wing of the Republican party as Cain’s.

Fox 5 Atlanta tweeted Sunday night that Cain was set to endorse Gingrich on Monday for the GOP nomination. Minutes later, National Journal’s Lindsey Boerma said there was word from the Cain campaign that “there’s nothing to report he’ll endorse someone tomorrow.”

Reuters reports that R.C. Hammond, a spokesman for Gingrich, said there were no plans for Cain to endorse the former Speaker of the House of Representatives on Monday, despite many media reports.

Mindy McCready due in court after son found

Country singer, six months pregnant with twins, could face jail time

Mindy McCready is due back in court today.

Arkansas police found the country singer and her five-year-old son Zander hiding in the closet of an unoccupied summer home days after the pair was reported missing.

Zander has been in Arkansas foster care since Friday night when he was taken from McCready and into custody. An Arkansas judge will confer with Florida Department of Children and Families officials Monday morning about sending the child back to Cape Coral, Fla., where he lived with McCready’s mother, Gayle Inge, who is his legal guardian.

According to ABC News, the Cleburne County sheriff said police tracked down the multi-platinum-selling recording artist at an unoccupied lake home in Heber Springs, Ark.
Authorities said her boyfriend, David Wilson, was talking to the police while McCready and her son hid in a closet. Neither Wilson nor McCready had permission to be inside the home.

Child welfare officials said Zander is safe and in good health, ABC reports.
It is uncertain whether or not the singer will face criminal charges. She was not arrested but could be charged with criminal trespassing. However, Sheriff Marty Moss told ABC News that was unlikely.

The singer has previously been arrested for drug charges and a DUI and spent time in jail for assaulting her mother. McCready taking her son in violation of a judge’s order could result in further jail time – only this time McCready is six months pregnant with twins.

The babies’ father is believed to be Wilson, according to the New York Daily News.

Madonna to perform Super Bowl Halftime show

Pop Legend to perform at Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis

It’s official: the Material Girl herself will be performing the Halftime show at Super Bowl XLVI, the NFL confirmed Sunday.

The NFL Championship game, which will take place Feb. 5 at Indianapolis’ Lucas Oil Stadium, will see Madonna team up with Cirque du Soleil, one of her favorite collaborator’s Jamie King and visual artists at the Moment Factory in a telecast on NBC.

After Janet Jackson’s infamous 2004 “wardrobe malfunction,” the NFL has been going with older, classic rock performers for the highly anticipated event. After Jackson and her co-star Justin Timberlake, Paul McCartney performed the following year. The next few years saw performances by The Rolling Stones, Prince, Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, Bruce Springsteen and the Who.

Last year, the NFL mixed it up and The Black Eyed Peas, Usher and Slash stole the show.

Brooke Mueller arrested for assault, cocaine possession

Charlie Sheen’s ex-wife arrested for assault, found with four grams of cocaine

Charlie Sheen may be out of trouble for now, but the same cannot be said for his ex-wife Brooke Mueller.

Mueller, 34, was found with at least four grams of cocaine when she was arrested for allegedly assaulting a woman at a local Aspen, Col., bar over the weekend.

She was arrested early Saturday after a woman at a local bar known as Belly Up told police that Mueller had assaulted her, according to a report by the Aspen Police Department. The officers arrested the on time real estate investor at another bar shortly after, the report said.

Mueller was charged with assault and drug possession and was released on $11,000 bail, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Mueller was also charged with possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, according to the police report.

Mueller and Sheen, who married in 2008, had a chaotic relationship and intense custody battle for their twin sons. Sheen was arrested in Aspen on Christmas day in 2009 for allegedly beating Mueller, who was reportedly legally drunk at the time she made the 911 call.

Sheen filed for divorce in February. Mueller has since entered rehabilitation for cocaine use. Both parents of twins Bob and Max are required to pass drug tests are part of their custody agreement, according to media reports. It is unclear who had custody of the twins at the time of Mueller’s arrest.

Kurt Busch fired by Penske

NASCAR driver fired after inappropriate tirade at reporter

Kurt Busch has been fired. Again.

According to the Charlotte Observer, Penske Racing fired its NASCAR No. 22 Dodge driver Sunday. An official announcement is expected Monday from Penske.

Just a little over a week ago, NASCAR fined Busch $50,000 for the use of an obscene gesture and profanity during an interaction with ESPN reporter Dr. Jerry Punch during the Sprint Cup series finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway, the Boston Herald reports.

The incident with Punch, which took place in the garage after Busch’s car broke its transmission, was caught on video and posted on YouTube.

The Boston Herald reports that Penske Racing officials gave a statement saying they were reviewing the matter internally.

Unfortunately for Busch, this is not his first firing for a reason unrelated to the track. In November 2005, less than one year after winning his first Cup series championship, Busch was cited for criminal recklessness in Avondale, Ariz., in what police said was an alcohol-related incident. Soon after, he was fired by Roush Fenway Racing.

After sitting out the final two races of 2005, Busch began driving for team owner Roger Penske in 2006. Since joining the Penske team, Busch has won 10 races and his highest finish was fourth place in 2009, the Herald reports.

Because this decision comes so late in the season, it puts Penske and Busch in a very difficult position. There are currently no quality cars available for Busch next season. Other drivers who competed this season but are now without cars include David Ragan, Brian Vickers and David Reutimann.

Rihanna put on 24-hour health watch

Rihanna put on health watch after meltdown in Ireland

Rihanna is reportedly under a 24-hour health watch.

The singer supposedly had a backstage meltdown that almost canceled her Nov. 25 show in Ireland, part of her 10-month, 101-day tour.

There is speculation that the 23-year-old’s intense tour schedule is causing serious exhaustion. After the tour finishes, the singer still has to film a DVD from her “Loud” tour before she can get some well-deserved R&R. After her show that was almost canceled, Rihanna tweeted to fans, “so light-headed! WTF!!!!!”

A month prior, Rihanna was hospitalized and forced to cancel a show in Sweden, because she was reportedly sick with the flu.

The Daily Mail claims that Rihanna turned to close friend and fellow singer Beyonce for advice on how to maintain her health during the tour. In a recent interview with Ellen DeGeneres, the singer said she wants to start dating.

Rihanna said, “I’m not necessarily happy being single. It’s not really that cool. My personal life is pretty much non-existent – which is not good, not for the long run.”

Ginger White apologizes to Gloria Cain

White apologizes to Herman Cain’s wife and kids for alleged affair

Ginger White is not finished with her time in the spotlight.

The woman claiming she had a 13-year-long extramarital affair with GOP presidential hopeful Herman Cain publicly apologized to Cain’s wife and children.

In an interview with MSNBC, White said, “I am deeply, deeply sorry if I have caused any hurt to her and to his kids, to his family. That was not my intention. I never wanted to hurt anyone and I’m deeply sorry. I am very sorry.”

“I am not a cold-hearted person,” White continued, “I am a mother of two kids. And of course my heart bleeds for this woman because I am a woman and being in a situation like this cannot be fun.”

White alleged publicly that she had a long term affair with Cain on Monday, becoming the fifth woman to come forward and accuse the Republican candidate of inappropriate behavior. Cain soon announced he was “reassessing” his campaign and consulting with his wife.

White claims she “never asked” Cain to leave his wife and that she would be “surprised” if Gloria Cain did not know about the affair, according to MSNBC. Herman Cain has stated differently, claiming that his wife was unaware of his friendship with White until after the accusations were made.

Obama postpones basketball fundraiser

Obama’s NBA campaign fundraiser pushed to summer

The NBA lockout may be over, but one thing is still being postponed – President Barack Obama’s Obama Classic fundraiser.

The campaign, that was to feature more than two dozen professional basketball stars, notified ticket holders Thursday that the Dec. 12 event was being moved to the summer, the Associated Press reports.

The fundraising all-star game had originally been planned when the NBA season was in jeopardy due to the lockout. Top players had already committed to the game. Owners and players recently came to an agreement, ending the lockout.

The NBA season is set to start Christmas Day.

Tickets to the game ranged from $100 to $5,000 for courtside seats, according the Associated Press. Donors who wanted to have dinner with the players gave the maximum $35,800. The money would be split between the Democratic Party and Obama’s re-election campaign.
