Sharon Stone lost physical custody of her 8-year-old son on Tuesday, after attempting to modify a previous joint agreement with her ex-husband Phil Bronstein. Phil will retain sole physical custody of Roan Joseph Bronstein, who was adopted a week after his birth. The court ruled that Phil “can provide a more structured continuity, stable, secure and consistent home for the child.” Oh, don’t be so hard on Sharon. THIS looks pretty stable, secure, and consistent. [Source:Foxnews.com: Photo:Getty]
Tony Alamo, 74, had a syndicated televangelist program in the 70s with his late wife Susan. At the time, his “glitzy” denim jackets were worn by everyone from Elvis Presley to Bruce Springsteen. Then he went to jail for tax evasion in 1985, and again in 1994. Now he’s back in the news after police raided his Fourke, Arkansas compound (he prefers the term “campus”) as part of a child pornography investigation. Six underage girls were seized, as authorities believe they were in “immediate danger.” While Alamo swears that there are no porno shoots or child marriages going on (“In the Bible it happened. But girls today, I don’t marry ‘em if they want to at 14-15 years old”), he stands by his belief that young girls should be married as soon as possible and that, “consent is puberty.”

Robert Wagner, best known as Number Two from the Austin Powers movies to anyone under 30 (and the guy from Hart To Hart to everyone older), alleges that he had a clandestine four-year affair with Hollywood legend Barbara Stanwyck in his new memoir, Piece Of My Heart. The pair met on the set of 1953′s Titanic, when Wagner was 22 and Stanwyck was 45. In an excerpt published in The Daily Mail, Wagner describes how the bigwigs in Hollywood tried to wreck their love by announcing he was engaged to actress Terry Moore.
The studio blindsided both of us by releasing a story that we were engaged! They never called, they never told me they were going to do this, it just appeared in the papers. I was livid; for one thing, I was very involved with Barbara and called her from Tarpon Springs every night. Terry was also a much younger woman, and Barbara was – how to put this delicately? – not pleased about that.
Growl! Check out a video after the jump of Wagner paying tribute to Stanwyck at a 1987 AFI salute to the actress. His emotion (“Barbara…it’s an honor to be a part of your life”)—and an aging Jimmy Stewart‘s interest in what Wagner’s going to say—makes a lot more sense in this new context.
Amid reports that Hugh Hefner and his #1 girlfriend Holly Madison are on the rocks, today he admitted that indeed the time may come for them to go their separate ways.
“I love her very much, but you know, she wants very much to get married and have children. That isn’t very much in the cards for me,” Hef says. “So there has to be a certain reality there.”
Although he insisted that at the moment, Holly “…is still my girlfriend,” Hef alluded to reports that she has been getting cozy with illusionist Criss Angel, saying, “… I’m sure the time will come when she’ll be dating others. That’s part of the transition.”
But has that time come already?
Now you too can be a sexy scientist! Dita Von Teese unveiled her new Wonderbra lingerie line by posing with two models and an oversized pair of her wares at a launch party in London earlier today. Check out the gallery to see the goods at work.

David Blaine is busy being a stain on the New York City scenery with his latest stunt – hanging upside down for 60 hours. While doctors are worried that all that gravity might make his internal organs explode, Blaine is all “f*ck that, I’m gonna hang forever!” The magician is currently rigged up and on display at Wollman Ring in Central Park, and will not be able to eat or sleep during the stunt. He’ll get food through a straw and pee through a catheter, and is able to free one leg so he can raise his head a bit. Blaine called this latest challenge “the most difficult for sure.” Luckily, being a douchebag is much easier. [BBC. WireImage]
Amy Winehouse is somehow cognizant enough to A) plan for a DJ night on Halloween and B) invite Chelsy Davy, Prince Harry‘s girlfriend, to join her in a matching rat outfit at the event. Says Wino, “I think Chelsy is nuts to be honest and I know we’d hit it off. She should come on a night out with me. I know Harry is a fan, so he could drop her off.” It seems unlikely that Davy will appear at the event (titled A Plague On Both Your Houses), let alone dress up like a rat, but then it seems unlikely that Winehouse will be there (or anywhere) either.
Meanwhile, Blake Fielder-Civil, Winehouse’s husband, has turned down another chance to leave prison. This time, rather than send him off to his mum’s, authorities said they’d shave months off his jail term if he’d go to rehab. But Blake said, “no, no, no.” Said a source to The Sun, “All he wants is a free reign when he leaves, which means living with Amy back in Camden. But if he is turning down these chances to leave jail and get clean, it doesn’t bode well for him and Amy when he finally does get out.” Nothing does, really.
So, it’s like, true. Whitney Port, Lauren Conrad‘s fashion conscious sidekick who has somehow managed to remain as neutral as Switzerland during four seasons of the show, has been let loose on Gotham as the star of MTV’s next big docudrama. Whit will be working for fashion designer Diane Von Fustenberg, and should start airing early next year. On The Hills, Whitney is good for a couple of weird faces and a shoulder to fake cry on, but how is that going to translate into a full thirty minutes? With a lot of help from her old friends the producers, we’d guess. [Photo: MTV]
