Reality TV star Kim Kardashian went on a Twitter rant earlier today about driving and texting laws in Florida, according to reports.
In the sunshine state, drivers can talk and text freely on their mobile phones. Kardashian, 29, who is currently in Miami Beach filming her sisters’ reality TV show Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami, was so outraged after spotting a police officer apparently texting at the wheel that she snapped a photo and posted it with the caption: “A cop texting and driving in the car next to us! This disturbs me! What do you guys think?”
The newly-single Keeping Up With The Kardashians star then urged her fans to take Oprah Winfrey’s ?No Phone Zone Pledge? with her and hinted about her own “awful texting and driving experience” that she said she “can’t wait to share with yo...Read More
Actor Kiefer Sutherland has revealed that the September 11 terrorist attacks made him feel that he had “wasted” his life acting.
As Jack Bauer on US TV show 24 – which has recently been cancelled after eight seasons – the 43-year-old protects the US from terrorism.
But, in real life, he said the events of September 11 put his profession into perspective.
In an interview with US showbiz mag Daily Variety, he said: “I felt for the first two weeks after 9/11 that I couldn’t believe I had wasted my life as an actor.
“Those were the moments when I think, rightfully so, we truly valued the police officers, the firemen, the doctors, the nurses, the people who can actually physically contribute at that exact moment.
“I was walking down the street in a daze like that, and a guy was walking do...Read More

Sandra Bullock is reportedly refusing to return to the Los Angeles mansion she shared with cheating husband Jesse James while he is there.
According to Radaronline.com, the Oscar-winner has moved out of the luxurious pad, which she bought before marrying the alleged love-rat, and has been staying at her Hollywood Hills home.
It is reported that the Blind Side star is devastated by claims that the daredevil biker has slept with up to four women behind her back.
Two of his alleged mistresses are strippers and one is a fetish model. The fourth is described as a businesswoman and is represented by high-profile Los Angeles attorney Gloria Allred.
Since the sex scandal emerged, 45-year-old Bullock has not been spotted in public and has cancelled several appearances.

Dennis Hopper is so ill he won’t be able to answer his wife’s legal claims in court.
His lawyer this week filed court papers to state the Easy Rider star is terminally ill with prostate cancer and unable to undergo chemotherapy.
Access Hollywood reports Joseph Mannis stated Hopper, 73, cannot be deposed by lawyers on behalf of Victoria Duffy, 42, in the course of his divorce proceedings.
Hopper filed for divorce in January, seeking to end his 14-year marriage to Duffy, with whom he has a daughter, Galen Grier, who turns seven on Friday.
Duffy has countered with claims of abuse and bizarre behaviour on Hopper’s part.
Mannis said Hopper was extremely weak and weighed barely 45 kilograms...Read More
You would think that when a doctor kills a man due to poor professional conduct, the first thing to go will be that doctor?s license. It?s getting close to a year since Michael Jackson passed from the land of the living and just now a petition to revoke Dr. Conrad Murray?s license has appeared. And this is what Jerry Brown, Attorney General, had to say about the recent request: “The defendant is alleged to have administered a lethal dose of Propofol and other powerful drugs to patient MJ, which resulted in the patient’s death. The exercise of such poor professional judgment and placing the life of a patient in jeopardy requires that the California Medical Board take measures to protect the public from future harm.” But it probably makes no difference...Read More
Tiger Woods will finally face the press without any stage management in a pre-Masters news conference, it has emerged.
The shamed golfer has been criticised for controlling his communications with the public in his only appearances since the November 27th car crash that led to his fall from grace.
But now, after reading out a statement and carrying out two time-controlled interviews, it looks like he will finally face a room full of reporters with no restrictions.
The PGA have reportedly scheduled him to hold a press conference on April 5th in preparation for his return to golf at the Masters in Augusta.
Although he may refuse to answer questions about his personal life, reporters are likely to ask about it nonetheless.
There are no other interviews that day, suggesting he could face...Read More
It looks like the rapper is a really helpless case when it comes to bankrupt British soccer teams? and probably stray puppies, too. Diddy is apparently looking to invest in Crystal Palace, a London soccer team that?s facing bankruptcy, but he also wants to help out other teams in difficult spots as well. This is what a source said about Diddy?s intentions: “Diddy was in London meeting football fixers a couple of weeks ago. The finance is in place, he’s just deciding who he thinks he’ll make a bid for. Portsmouth – who are also in severe debt – were mentioned but he thought Palace were a better idea. He could cover their debt and bankroll a return to the Premier League. He liked the name as well.” So in this case it does pay for a team to have a likeable name...Read More
Sandra Bullock’s marital status is now listed as separated from Jesse James on her IMDb profile page, but her rep says they never authorised that change.
An employee for the internet movie database told TMZ, in order to make such a change to a star’s profile, it must be approved internally by IMDb.

Ten days after her tearful, triumphant Best Actress Oscar win, Sandra Bullock was rocked by news that her husband, Jesse James, cheated on her with a tattoo model Michelle (Bombshell) McGee.
Bullock reportedly moved out of their Los Angeles home and has been in hiding since the story broke.Read More
