susan boyle hospitalized

Susan Boyle was hospitalized on Sunday evening following what was described as a breakdown after her second-place finish on Britain's Got Talent.

According to reports, the 48-year-old was seen wandering around her London hotel looking disoriented. Staffers from Britain's Got Talent contacted police and Boyle was assessed under the Mental Health Act and taken by paramedics to Priory Clinic - a mental health facility - in London.

"It was all done very calmly. They didn't want to stress or upset her. She didn't look well - she looked lost, not all there," said a source.

A spokesperson for the reality show issued a statement, saying, "Following Saturday's show, Susan is exhausted and emotionally drained. She has been seen by her private GP, who supports her decision to take a few days out for rest and recovery. We offer her our ongoing support and wish her a speedy recovery."

Earlier in the week, Boyle reportedly had a meltdown after being harassed by two reporters in the lobby of her London hotel.

eminem 52109

Eminem and Bruno (Sasha Baron Cohen) got into a fight at the MTV Movie Awards and many are asking if the fight was real or staged.

Bruno "teabagged" Eminem, and he didn't appear to be amused at all, getting up and walking out with his crew.

Zac Efron seemed startled and wasn't quite sure what to do, and Ryan Seacrest twittered about it, saying, (sic) "If u saw the fight at mtv movie awards betwen eminem and "bruno" I am told it was real and em's crew left the show."

It appears that it may have been a joke on Eminem that he wasn't in on.  Check out the video below and let us know what you think.

 amand brumfield mug shot

Amanda Brumfield, Billy Bob Thornton's daughter, has been arrested and charged with child neglect in the death of a 1-year-old child she was babysitting.

The girl died suspiciously from a blow to the head in October while in Brumfield's care.

According to Brumfield, the child fell from the top of her playpen, hitting her head and biting part way through her tongue.

Brumfield told police that she cleaned the baby's bleeding tongue with a paper towel and began playing with her, feeding her bananas and fruit snacks, and claims she was happy and playful.

Police say that it is doubtful the girl's injuries could have been caused by a 28-inch fall from the playpen.

"It's not believable that a 1-year-old can balance themselves on a railing," said Ocoee police spokesman James Berish. "You would either have to fall harder or hit something with more force."

Brumfield, who didn't call for emergency medical assistance until 2 1/2 hours later, says she laid the child on the couch next to her and fell asleep. She says was awakened sometime later by the phone and decided to take the child back to the playpen. She told police that when she lifted the child she discovered her body was limp.

When paramedics arrived at the scene, they attempted to do CPR on the girl, but were unable to revive her.

An autopsy determined the child suffered a fractured skull and a subdural hematoma due to blunt trauma.  The injuries found were inconsistent with the explanation given by Brumfield, and the medical examiner ruled the death a homicide.

Brumfield, 29, was released from jail today after posting $2,500 bond.

A rep for Billy Bob Thornton issued a statement, saying, "Mr. Thornton is estranged from Amanda and has had no contact with her for quite some time, however when informed about this situation he commented that, 'Anytime a baby's life is lost is an unimaginable tragedy and my heart goes out to the baby's family and loved ones.'"

Brumfield is Thornton's daughter with first wife Melissa Gatlin.

dr george tiller killed

Dr. George Tiller 1941-2009

Dr. George Tiller, one of the few U.S. physicians to perform late-term abortions, was shot and killed at his church on Sunday morning.  According to attorney Dan Monnat, the 67-year-old died after being shot outside the Reformation Lutheran Church in Wichita, Kansas at 10:00 a.m. on May 31, 2009.   The doctor was serving as an usher and his wife was singing in the choir at the time of the shooting.

Police were searching for a 1993 powder-blue Ford Taurus that is registered in the Kansas City suburb of Merriam, Kansas.  According to Wichita police spokesman Gordon Bassham, several witnesses saw the killer speeding away from the crime scene, and provided a license number and description of the vehicle.  The plate was reportedly a Kansas State University vanity plate.

A suspect was taken into custody at 2:00 p.m. central time in Gardner, Kansas, according to Eyewitness 12, a Kansas City news source.

The prominent advocate for abortion rights and his women's clinic have been the site of protests for the past two decades.  In 1985 his clinic was bombed and in 1993 he was shot in both arms by protester Rachelle 'Shelley' Shannon of Grants Pass, Oregon.  She received an 11-year prison sentence - see her photo below.

The anti-abortion group Operation Rescue issued a statement denouncing the shooting.  Their president Troy Newman said, "We are shocked at this morning's disturbing news that Mr. Tiller was gunned down.  Operation Rescue has worked for years through peaceful, legal means, and through the proper channels to see him brought to justice.  We denounce vigilantism and the cowardly act that took place this morning."

In 1991, Operation Rescue organized what they dubbed the Summer of Mercy protests.  They drew thousands of activists to Wichita for demonstrations that resulted in mass arrests for civil disobedience.

See video below.  The first is breaking news regarding the murder.  The second shows the coroner's office bringing the body out of the church.

nadya suleman

For a minute we thought that 'Octo-mom' Nadya Suleman was keeping herself out of the spotlight but we were wrong!  The mother of 14 has been busy setting up a reality TV series and book deal.

British production company Eyeworks will begin filming a documentary series, capturing the important milestones in the lives of her children; including birthdays and other special events.  Her attorney Jeff Czech is calling it a "quasi reality" show.

Her attorney goes on to say that Nadya if fully aware that she has to do something to be able to support her children, which is why she chose this route.  He said,  "She doesn't want the constant filming because she feels that would be taking advantage of her kids.  She's trying to find the middle ground and feels this approach will work best."

Suleman doesn't want to be compared to the popular reality show Jon & Kate Plus 8.  Apparently she has occasionally watched the show and she thinks they are boring.  That is grand!  Boring?

Eyeworks is shopping the series idea around to various networks.   It should be interesting to see if TCL will bite on this one.  They already air several mega-family shows, including 18 Kids and Counting - showcasing the Duggar family.

As for her other business opportunity, Suleman just signed a deal with ghostwriter Wendy Lee to write her autobiography.  Lee also co-wrote Life With My Sister Madonna, along with Christopher Ciccone.

Czech said that Nadya is most excited about the book deal.   She plans to share with the world details of how she was raised, how her children are feeling and details on the donor dad.

Will you read the book or watch her "quasi reality" show?
