    Wow - I must have been living under a rock with that Ryan Phillippe and Reese Witherspoon thing. I guess that would explain why they just aired a special on Reese the other day. Hmm. Must've missed that! That's too bad, unlike some of these other couples we're mentioning, they actually seemed kind of sweet together.

    He has proven that he is not an interested father. Duh! How many times have you seen him with any of his children? I'm pretty sure he's all about him.

    I think Britney has gotten what she deserved by marrying this boy. Things that don't start out appropriately have a tendency to end in a pathetic state. Like the saying goes: What they'll do with you, they'll do to you.

    60 Minutes' Ed Bradley Dead At 65

    60 Minutes' Ed Bradley Dead At 65

    Nov. 9, 2006
    NEW YORK (CBS) Veteran 60 Minutes correspondent Ed Bradley died of complications from leukemia this morning at Mt. Sinai hospital in Manhattan. He joined the staff of the venerable news magazine 26 years ago.

    Bradley’s consummate skills as a broadcast journalist and his distinctive body of work were recognized with numerous awards, including 19 Emmys, the latest for a segment that reported the reopening of the 50-year-old racial murder case of Emmett Till.

    In a special report, CBS Evening News anchor and managing editor Katie Couric said Bradley was "considered intelligent, smooth, cool, a great reporter, beloved and respected by all his colleagues here at CBS News."

    "He certainly was a reporter's reporter," fellow 60 Minutes correspondent Mike Wallace told CBS News Radio.

    He was honored with the Lifetime Achievement award from the National Association of Black Journalists. Three of his Emmys came at the 2003 awards: a Lifetime Achievement Emmy; one for a 60 Minutes report on brain cancer patients, "A New Lease on Life;" and another for his hour on 60 Minutes II about sexual abuse in the Catholic Church, “The Catholic Church on Trial."

    Bradley’s 60 Minutes interview with condemned Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh was the only television interview ever given by the man guilty of one of the worst terrorist acts on American soil; it also earned Bradley an Emmy.

    His reporting on the worst school shooting in American history, “Columbine” (April 2001), revealed on 60 Minutes II that authorities ignored telling evidence with which they might have prevented the massacre.

    Other hourlong reports by Bradley have prompted praise and action: “Death by Denial” won a Peabody Award for focusing on the plight of Africans dying of AIDS and helped convince drug companies to donate and discount AIDS drugs; “Unsafe Haven” spurred federal investigations into the nation’s largest chain of psychiatric hospitals; and “Town Under Siege," about a small town battling toxic waste, was named one of the Ten Best Television Programs of 1997 by Time magazine.

    Bradley’s significant contribution to electronic journalism was also recognized by the Radio/Television News Directors Association when it named him its Paul White Award winner for 2000. He joins other distinguished journalists, such as Edward R. Murrow, Walter Cronkite and Peter Jennings, as a Paul White recipient.

    More recently, the Denver Press Club awarded him its 2003 Damon Runyon Award for career journalistic excellence. Another prestigious honor received by Bradley is the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Awards grand prize and television first prize for "CBS Reports: In the Killing Fields of America" (January 1995), a documentary about violence in America, for which he was co-anchor and reporter.

    His work on 60 Minutes has gained much recognition, including a George Foster Peabody Award for “Big Man, Big Voice” (November 1997), the uplifting story of a German singer who became successful despite birth defects. In 1995, he won his 11th Emmy Award for a 60 Minutes segment on the cruel effects of nuclear testing in the town of Semipalatinsk, Kazakhstan, a report that also won him an Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Award in 1994.

    Also in 1994, he was honored with an Overseas Press Club Award for two 60 Minutes reports that took viewers inside sensitive military installations in Russia and the United States. In 1985, he received an Emmy Award for “Schizophrenia,” a 60 Minutes report on that misunderstood brain disorder.

    In 1983, two of Bradley’s reports for 60 Minutes won Emmy Awards: “In the Belly of the Beast,” an interview with Jack Henry Abbott, a convicted murderer and author, and “Lena,” a profile of singer Lena Horne. He received an Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Silver Baton and a 1991 Emmy Award for his 60 Minutes report “Made in China,” a look at Chinese forced-labor camps, and another Emmy for “Caitlin’s Story” (November 1992), an examination of the controversy between the parents of a deaf child and a deaf association.

    In addition to “In the Killing Fields,” his work for "CBS Reports" has included: “Enter the Jury Room” (April 1997), an Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Award winner that revealed the jury deliberation process for the first time in front of network cameras; “The Boat People” (January 1979), which won duPont, Emmy and Overseas Press Club Awards; “The Boston Goes to China” (April 1979), a report on the historic visit to China by the Boston Symphony Orchestra, which won Emmy, Peabody and Ohio State Awards, and “Blacks in America: With All Deliberate Speed?” (July 1979), which won Emmy and duPont Awards.

    Bradley’s coverage of the plight of Cambodian refugees, broadcast on the CBS Evening News with Walter Cronkite and CBS News Sunday Morning, won a George Polk Award in journalism.

    He also received a duPont citation for a segment on the Cambodian situation broadcast on CBS News’ “Magazine” series. He covered the presidential campaign of Jimmy Carter during Campaign ‘76, served as a floor correspondent for CBS News’ coverage of the Democratic and Republican National Conventions from 1976 through 1996, and has participated in CBS News’ election-night coverage.

    Prior to joining 60 Minutes, Bradley was a principal correspondent for "CBS Reports" (1978-81), after serving as CBS News' White House correspondent (1976-78). He was also anchor of the "CBS Sunday Night News” (November 1976-May 1981) and of the CBS News magazine "Street Stories" (January 1992-August 1993).

    Bradley joined CBS News as a stringer in its Paris bureau in September 1971. A year later, he was transferred to the Saigon bureau, where he remained until he was assigned to the CBS News Washington bureau in June 1974. He was named a CBS News correspondent in April 1973 and, shortly thereafter, was wounded while on assignment in Cambodia. In March 1975, he volunteered to return to Indochina and covered the fall of Cambodia and Vietnam.

    Prior to joining CBS News, he was a reporter for WCBS Radio, the CBS Owned station in New York (August 1967-July 1971). He had previously been a reporter for WDAS Radio Philadelphia (1963-67).

    Bradley was born June 22, 1941, in Philadelphia and was graduated from Cheyney (Pa.) State College in 1964 with a B.S. in education.

    Whoa! Didn't even know he was ill. How sad. Hope he didn't suffer.

    Oh, that's so sad. I always liked him. I always make one of his pasta recipes that I saw in GQ magazine a million years ago. May he rest in peace.

    Now for some trashy celeb news (might I add that people who throw things off balconies are idiots--they don't seem to realize that it has to land somewhere OR on someone... :nono ) :

    Denise Richards in Bizarre Movie Set Incident

    THURSDAY NOVEMBER 09, 2006 08:25AM EST

    By Christine Kilpatrick and Bryan Alexander

    Denise Richards

    Denise Richards was involved in a bizarre incident with paparazzi Wednesday on the Canadian set of her new movie Blonde and Blonder, where laptop computers were hurled and a senior citizen slightly injured, a spokesman for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police tells PEOPLE.

    The Mounties were summoned to the movie location at the River Rock Casino Resort in Richmond, British Columbia, a suburb of Vancouver, after Richards took issue with the presence of two unauthorized photographers on the set, said Cpl. Peter Thiessen, a media relations officer for the Richmond Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

    The actress approached the photographers and threw their laptops off the balcony of the hotel, said Thiessen, adding that a computer "struck an 80-year-old women in a wheelchair. It struck her in the arm. She was not interested in pursuing criminal charges and suffered only minor injuries."

    Police interviewed both Richards and her costar, Pamela Anderson, about the incident, and the movie production company agreed to pay for the damages to the photographers' computers, according to Thiessen.

    "Based on the actions of the paparazzi, they are lucky their laptops are the only things that were tossed over the balcony," a rep for Richards told PEOPLE.

    As of yet, no charges are being filed. Howard Blank, a representative of the Blonde and Blonder production, said, "No one was seriously injured in any way." He said the events were "getting blown way out of proportion."

    Blank added, "As a precaution first aid was called. An ambulance was called, which is also routine. No one was transferred to the hospital at all. Everything is fine."

    Richards and cast members were "very upset" about the incident, Blank said, and after filming was halted for an hour it then resumed and continued until 8 in the evening.

    Has anyone been watching these interviews with ANS, on Entertainment Tonight? That woman is as high as a Georgia Pine. She can barely speak and what words do escape are almost too slurrred to be understood. She was talking about her mother with her(fake) teeth clinched and was gritting them and shaking all over. Creepy, I tell you.

    Denise Richards needs to be glad that the senior citizen she hit with the computer was not me. I could always use a little, or lot of, extra money and how better to get it than to sue an out of control "movie star" who is full of herself?

    Or Elizabeth Taylor and Larry Fortensky.
    Anyone read that this Gest clown is going to be on the next "I'm a celebrity, get me out of here"? All the rest of the cast are unknowns to me. Guess none of them ever married Liza or I would have recognized their name.
