randy quaid extradition

Actor Randy Quaid and his wife Evi Quaid have been given several opportunities by the Santa Barbara court system to show up and face charges stemming from an unpaid hotel bill.  Once again the two have failed to appear for their scheduled hearing.

California prosecutors will now move ahead with extradition proceedings against the couple.  Their arrest warrants remain active according to senior deputy district attorney Lee Carter.  He indicated his office will seek extradition from Texas, where Randy and Evi were arrested last month.

The felony charges stem from a luxury resort stay where the couple racked up charges totaling $10,000.  They skipped on the bill after being told that their credit card had been declined.

View video coverage of the case below.

oprah winfrey violence

Back in September, singer Chris Brown spoke out about how betrayed he felt after talk show queen Oprah Winfrey aired a show on domestic violence and dedicated it to all the "Rihanna's of the world."

For Brown, who is no longer welcome on Oprah, this was a slap in the face and he felt she should have been as sympathetic to his plight as she was toward the victims.  Brown isn't the only one harboring hard feelings and it looks as though Winfrey may be operating under a double standard.

Gospel singer BeBe Winans was on Oprah last Friday promoting his new album.  What is the problem with that?  BeBe is accused of domestic violence against his wife Debra Winans.  BeBe reportedly shoved Debra to the ground in front of their children.  Charges are pending for the singer, who has another court date scheduled for early next year.

Debra spoke with TMZ and said that she was hurt that Oprah would have BeBe on the show.

chaz bono sex change

Chaz Bono sat for a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight and provided an update on his gender transformation.  He reports that at the age of 40-year-old, his true identity is emerging after a very long process that began nearly a decade ago.

After years of indecision, Chaz determined he was finally ready to take the steps necessary for the female-to-male sex change early this year.  The process included the removal of breast tissue, which he called a relief rather than traumatic.  Regarding the hormone treatments, Bono reports that the testosterone  has slowly caused significant changes.  "It lowered my voice.  Fat redistributes, muscles grow, hair grows, sex drive increases...I shave about once a week now."

Bono is the daughter of famed musicians Sonny and Cher and grew up in the public spotlight, and has been in a longtime relationship with partner Jennifer Elia - photos here.

The process is not yet complete and further surgery is planned.  Part two of the compelling interview will air tonight on ET - see part one video below.

View the photo journal history of Bono's transformation from Chastity to Chaz and ET footage below.
