    Kathleen Perricone at Yahoo Celebrity 2 yrs ago

    It’s been reported that the gunman is 20-year-old Adam Lanza, whose mother Nancy was a either a teacher or an aide at the elementary school, located just 65 miles northeast of New York City. After the rampage, which began in the school’s main office and continued on in a kindergarten classroom, Adam Lanza was found dead, although it’s unclear at this time if he took his own life. Police have also discovered the body of an unknown adult at the Lanza family home. ABC News reports it is Nancy Lanza.

    One child is confirmed dead in #Newtown shooting - this is just awful. My heart goes out 2 all affected... So sad

    How could someone be so evil as to kill innocent children at school? God Bless and watch over those families and children that witnessed it!

    There are just no words. Only sorrow. We are all shedding tears today for those families.

    These poor parents probably have Christmas presents for these poor babies. I can't stop crying. I want to rip Bryn out of school.

    Just sick about the news from CT. Sending love to all those families

  • Camille Grammer: Ex Kelsey Won’t Let Our Kids Say My Name at His House

    Kathleen Perricone at Goddess: Celebrity Moms and Dads 2 yrs ago

    The "c-word" is not allowed to be spoken in the Grammer household … and no, that word isn't "car seat." During an appearance on "Anderson" on Tuesday, Camille Grammer revealed that her ex-husband, Kelsey Grammer, has forbidden their two children (Mason, 11, and Jude, 8) from saying their mother's first name while they are visiting with him and his new wife, Kayte.

    "So these poor kids, my daughter and my son, can't say my name in their father's house," said the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star, adding that it made her "sad" when she found out. "I think they can say 'mom' or 'the other household,' but they can't say my name."

    It's unclear why Kelsey, 58, who cheated on Camille, 44, with Kayte, is so incensed by his ex. During an August interview with Oprah Winfrey, he also refused to say Camille's name, only referring to her as "that person."

    Kelsey's rep did not respond to omg!'s request for a comment.

  • Charlie Sheen’s Ex-Wife Brooke Mueller: I Didn’t Overdose, I Was ‘Napping’

    Kathleen Perricone at Yahoo Celebrity 2 yrs ago

    It looks like Brooke Mueller went to the same school of excuses as Lindsay Lohan. After it was reported by TMZon Friday that the ex-wife of Charlie Sheen and mother of his 3-year-old twin boys had overdosed on drugs, her rep Steve Honig – who coincidentally or not just quit as Lohan’s mouthpiece – explained, "An assistant thought Brooke was non-responsive while she was napping and hastily called an ambulance. As a precaution, Brooke was brought to a local hospital and discharged after an hour. She was diagnosed with exhaustion and dehydration and is now fine and resting at home. That's it."

    According to TMZ, Mueller, who split from Sheen in November 2010 but has remained friends with him, has been to rehab 15 times for dependency issues, most recently this past June. In March, she struck a plea deal with prosecutors in Aspen, Colorado, after she was arrested for cocaine possession following her arrest for attacking a woman in a nightclub last December.

  • Lindsay Lohan Shows Up at The Wanted Concert: Her History of Acting Like a Groupie

    Kathleen Perricone at Yahoo Celebrity 2 yrs ago

    But it doesn’t look like she won his affections this time either. Despite reports that the 26-year-old was only there to spend time with the British singer, he clearly had other plans: a date with Jagermeister. “Good night ahead!!” he tweetedafter the Philly show, along with a photo of him planting a kissing on a huge bottle of the German liquor. Lohan, whom George described as “the best drunk in New York” toE! Online after the Big Apple debacle, “has been trying to hang out with Max for some time,” a source tells the site. “You always want to give people the benefit of the doubt, but once he saw what was happening, he was out of there."

    This the first time Lohan has acted like a band groupie. After filming “Chapter 27” with Jared Leto in 2006, she spent the next few years showing up at 30 Seconds to Mars concerts and hitting events proudly wearing his band’s Echelon bracelets – even long after the two had been rumored to be an item.

  • Bobbi Kristina Brown’s Ex Blasts Whitney Houston Song During Arrest

    Kathleen Perricone at Yahoo Celebrity 2 yrs ago

    The saga of Bobbi Kristina Brown and her adopted brother just got to another level of weird. On November 28 – the same day Whitney Houston’s 19-year-old daughter crashed her car after she drove down an embankment – Nick Gordon was arrested for going 82 mph in a 35 mph zone … while blasting the late singer’s 1992 classic “I Will Always Love You.” Because nothing inspires speeding like an easy-listening ballad.

    Ironically, Bobbi Kristina got into an accident on that same day, and Houston was clearly on her mind as well. After she crashed her car into a tree, which left her uninjured, the teen tweetedthat her mother was her “personal guardian angel” who kept her safe from harm. “Not a scratch,” she added.

    Later that day, it was reported that Bobbi Kristina and Gordon had called off their engagement – even though they never officially confirmed it – and that everyone will be able to watch the drama unfold on the Houston family's upcoming Lifetime reality show.

  • Lindsay Lohan’s Bank Accounts Frozen by IRS to Pay Off $233k Debt: Report

    Kathleen Perricone at Yahoo Celebrity 2 yrs ago

    Just when it seemed that things really couldn’t get any worse for Lindsay Lohan … they have. On Monday, just days after she was arrested for punching a woman at a New York City nightclub, it was reported that the IRS had frozen the actress’ bank accounts in order to get payment on the $233,904 she owes Uncle Sam in back taxes from 2009 and 2010. Although her “Scary Movie 5” co-star Charlie Sheen reportedly gave Lohan $100,000 to put towards her 2009 bill, the very generous gift seems to not have made much of a dent in the overall amount, which now also includes 2011 taxes, according to TMZ. (Lohan’s manager did not respond to omg!’s request for comment.)

    Lohan has not been seen since she was escorted out of New York City’s 10th Precinct early Thursday morning. Although there were reports that she might enter rehab in an effort to cut a deal with the judge to keep her out of jail, she’s reportedlytelling friends she does not feel she needs any help.

  • Lindsay Lohan Kicks Assistant Out of Car After He Bails Her Out of Jail: Video

    Kathleen Perricone at Yahoo Celebrity 2 yrs ago

    In a new video, just before Lohan, 26, was escorted out of the 10th Precinct at 7 a.m., she can be seen turning around to Gavin Doyle and yelling, “You’re not coming with us!” Still, he does and hops in the front seat of the awaiting car, while Lohan gets in the back with security. But before her door shuts, the actress is heard screaming, “Gavin get out of the car, get out of the car Gavin! Get him out of the car, now! Gavin get out! Gavin get out of the f--king car. Now!” Doyle does as he is told, while the group surrounding the car laughs at him, but not before poking his head back in the car and telling Lohan, “OK. Never speak to me again.”

    On Friday, Doyle tweeted that he was headed for Miami, presumably to get far away from the drama. Soon after, he added, “Be thankful for the good things and people in your life. It’s not where you are in life, it’s who you have by your side that matters.” [Related: Why Isn't Lindsay Lohan in Jail? -- And Other Burning Questions]

    Clearly, she has priorities.

  • Amanda Bynes Stops Cab to Yell at Photographers Waiting on Justin Bieber

    Kathleen Perricone at Yahoo Celebrity 2 yrs ago

    For someone who wants to be left alone by the general public, Amanda Bynes sure knows how to command attention. The “retired” actress, who hasn’t been seen in weeks since she fled Los Angeles for New York in September after a string of bad driving incidents, came out of hiding on Wednesday looking better than she has in a while … but still acting very strangely. Bynes, whose dark hair is now a golden hue and extra long thanks to extensions, accidentally stumbled upon a group of photographers waiting to snap a picture of Justin Bieber while walking down a New York City sidewalk. Once she realized her mistake, she immediately tried to cover her face with her scarf, but it was too late. Luckily for the “What a Girl Wants” actress, she was able to hail a taxi and extract herself from the situation … yet moments later, she made the cabbie pull over so she could go back and give the photogs a piece of her mind. According to E! Online, Bynes scolded them for acting illegally – even though they were not – and then hopped back in the cab and headed straight to Bergdorf Goodman for a shopping spree.

  • Bobbi Kristina Brown Thanks Late Mother Whitney Houston for Keeping Her Safe After Car Crash

    Kathleen Perricone at Yahoo Celebrity 2 yrs ago

    For the second time in two months, Bobbi Kristina Brown’s Camaro has been involved in a single-car crash. On Wednesday, the 19-year-old lost control of her vehicle as she attempted to make a left turn out of her apartment complex in Alpharetta, Georgia (click hereto see photos). She drove over the curb and down an embankment before coming to a stop on a park trail. Luckily, no one, including Bobbi Kristina, was injured, although she took out a bunch of trees on the way down.

    According to law enforcement, after a passerby saw what happened, the person called 911, but when EMTs arrived, Bobbi Kristina was already safely out of her car. She was later given a citation for “failure to maintain lane,” after it was determined that no drugs or alcohol were involved in the accident.

    Following the crash, Bobbi Kristina took to Twitter to tell her concerned followers that her mother, Whitney Houston, who died in February following cocaine use, was her “personal guardian angel” who kept her safe from harm. “Not a scratch,” she added, before including the hashtag “SeriousChangeswithinME.”

  • Gabriel Aubry vs Olivier Martinez: The Conflicting Stories About Their Fight

    Kathleen Perricone at Yahoo Celebrity 2 yrs ago

    According to TMZ, Aubry was granted a restraining order from the “Unfaithful” actor, and in his declaration, he claimed that the day before the fight, he took Nahla (his daughter with Berry) to her school play, and when his ex and Martinez showed up, Martinez whispered in his ear in French, "I wish I could beat the s--t out of you right now. You're lucky we're in a school right now. We're going to take Nahla right now and you're not going to follow us.” That next morning, Aubry states, he brought the little girl back to her mother’s home, but instead of the nanny receiving Nahla as she normally does, Martinez appeared at the door and said, “We need to talk.” According to Aubry, he was walking to his car when Martinez jumped off the stairs and knocked him to the ground. As he beat the model, he yelled that he had cost him $3 million in lawyer fees (Berry and Martinez recently lost their bid to move to France with Nahla). Aubry also writes in his declaration that after the fight, Martinez said, “We called the cops … you're going to tell them that you're the one who attacked me, or I'm going to kill you."
