The rumors have been floating practically since Mel Gibson first introduced us to mistress Oksana Grigorieva, but the actor/director has never admitted to knocking up his new lady until he sat down with Jay Leno on the Tonight Show last night. “This is true, we’re having a child…I guess I’m ‘Octo-Mel’ now.”
Gibson joked about his upcoming divorce, claiming “now I’ll have two women mad at me” after admitting his girlfriend is “almost 40.” He also says he didn’t meet Oksana, an “accomplished artist, pianist” signed to his record label, until two years after separating from Robyn Gibson, his wife of 28 years and the mother of his seven children. Will the ultra-Catholic put a ring on it before the kid is born?
Good old Demi Moore just can’t get enough of Twittering and we love her for it – especially as she posted this shot of her missing a front tooth this weekend. Usually looking inhumanely hot (especially for a forty-something mom of three), it’s refreshing to see that Demi too looks pretty weird when having a tooth taken out at the dentist – but also kind of cute. We’ve already seen the shot of her bum, courtesy of husband Ashton Kutcher, so we can’t wait to see what other intimate snaps the web-happy couple are going to share… [Photo: Twitter]
Exodus Tyson, Mike Tyson‘s 4-year-old daughter, is on life support after a tragic accident in the family’s Phoenix home. “Somehow she was playing on this treadmill, and there’s a cord that hangs under the console — it’s kind of a loop,” said Police Sgt. Andy Hill. “Either she slipped or put her head in the loop, but it acted like a noose, and she was obviously unable to get herself off of it.” Found by her 7-year-old brother, Exodus was removed from the treadmill by her mother, who immediately called 911. She is currently listed in “extremely critical condition.”
Former heavyweight boxing champion Tyson recently raised his public profile with a critically acclaimed documentary, Tyson, and a cameo in the upcoming film comedy, The Hangover. “The Tyson family would like to extend our deepest and most heartfelt thanks for all your prayers and support,” reads a statement from Tyson. “We ask that we be allowed our privacy at this difficult time.”
There were rumors six months ago that they may have hooked up, and now they’re back again. Yep, could “Rihanye” be more than a product of our word-mashing imaginations? Rihanna was spotted coming out of Kanye West‘s NYC apartment this weekend, she was wearing the outfit she should have worn to the Met Ball. Sexy, tight, and short, we would say that is a dress designed to impress. And perhaps a little more effort than you would normally make in order just to visit a friend one afternoon? Hm. Ã‚Â
The guy at the center of the Miley Cyrus hook-up rumors has spoken out and admitted they’re “close.” London actor Gregg Sulkin, pictured above in 2006 (he’s almost 17, so don’t worry about Miley being a cougar), was said to be the object of Miley’s affections earlier this month, and bringing her close to ending things with boyfriend Justin Gaston.
“She chatted me up and we exchanged numbers and emails. She is really, really nice. What she’s made me realize is that everyone is just a normal person, even if they are on film and TV. I never know what’s going to happen. I just go with the flow. But we are close,” he told the Sun.
Very sweet, Gregg. And we’re sure you’re about to get in huge amounts of trouble for talking as candidly as this, instead of just saying, “I don’t know where these crazy rumors come from! We’re just friends.” But we look forward to yours and Miley’s red carpet debut soon. [Photos: Splash News Online, FilmMagic]
Brooke Shields wishes she’d got busy earlier. The hot mamma confessed to Health magazine that she waited until she was 22 to lose her virginity — but instead of being piously proud at putting it off for so long, she regrets it.
“I think I would have lost my virginity earlier than I did at 22. I had the public and all this pressure, and I wish I had just gotten it over with in the beginning when it was sort of OK. I think I would have been much more in touch with myself,” she said.
Blogs have been buzzing with this “shocking” statement, but, really? Is it so shocking to be honest and say that having sex before your twenties might actually be a good thing? We think Brooke sounds like a pretty intelligent lady. [Photo: Splash News Online]

Late actorHeath Ledger took a final bow at the Cannes Film Festival, when, at the end of the weekend screening of his final film, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, a dedication read “A film from Heath Ledger and friends.”
Director Terry Gilliam said that Heath practically co-directed the film. “Heath was just brilliant at it. He got everybody else going. Everybody was just energized by Heath,” he said. “He was extraordinary. He was almost exhausting because he had so much energy.”
After Heath’s sudden death in January 2008,Jude Law, Colin Farrell, and Johnny Depp stepped up to finish the role left by the Australian actor. [Photo: Getty Images]
After a twelve day event filled with fashion, parties, and spit swapping, the 62nd Cannes Film Festival came to a close Sunday when black and white drama White Ribbon took the Palme d’Or. The festival’s top honor was presented by jury president Isabelle Huppert to Austrian director Michael Haneke at a ceremony at the Palais des Festivals. Not since Clint Eastwood presented the award to Quentin Tarantino for Pulp Fiction has the jury president handed out the award themselves.
The film, set in a village of northern Germany, follows a group of children who are the prime suspects in a series of crimes.
At the seaside cermony, the director said, “My wife sometimes asks me a very female question, ‘Are you happy?’ It’s very difficult to reply, I find, because happiness is a rare thing, but now I can say, this is a moment in my life when I am really happy.” [Photo: Splash News Online]
