jane russell in 2009

Screen legend Jane Rusell died Monday morning of respiratory failure at her home in Santa Maria, California.

According to daughter-in-law Etta Waterfield, Russell was a "pillar of health" but caught a cold and died of respiratory difficulties.

Russell became a popular pinup girl during World War II, after being discovered by Howard Hughes for his film, "Outlaw."

She went on to become an accomplished actress in dramatic and comedic roles, catapulting to fame when she starred alongside Marilyn Monroe in "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes."

Survivors include her children, Thomas K. Waterfield, Tracy Foundas and Robert "Buck" Waterfield, six grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.

charlie sheen on the today show

The Charlie Sheen madness continued this morning with media rounds where the actor discussed his drug abuse, his family, and his feud with Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre.

In an interview on The Today Show with NBC's Jeff Rossen, Sheen said, "I'm tired of pretending I'm not special.  I'm tired of pretending like I'm not bitching, a total frickin rock star from Mars. People can't figure me out, they can't process me. I don't expect them to. You can't process me with a normal brain."

Well, Charlie, you got that last part right.  We "normal" people are certainly having trouble processing you.

Calling Alcoholics Anonymous a failed system developed by a "broken-down fool that was a plagiarist,  Sheen said he conquered his drug and alcohol problems on his own.  "I closed my eyes and made it so," Sheen said.

“I will not believe that if I do something then I have to follow a certain path, because it was written nice,” he said. “It was written for normal people, people that aren’t special. People that don’t have tiger blood, you know, Adonis DNA.”

He denied that he is an addict or an alcoholic, saying they lack his strength of character, calling them "fools, trolls, weak, defeated."

"They allowed defeat to be an option.  I will not."

Sheen says he will finish the TV show, if CBS and Warner Bros. bump his pay from $2 million to $3 million per episode.

"We're definitely at war," says Sheen.  "They're trying to destroy my family."

"Defeat is not an option. They picked a fight with a warlock."

When asked if he should apologize for his recent antics, Sheen replied, "No, they owe me an apology, a public one. They should be licking my feet."

According to reports, Sheen plans to file a $320 million lawsuit against CBS, Warner Bros. and Lorre for "mental anguish."

Despite the disbelief of most of the media and public at large that Sheen is clean (for the moment), I, for one, do believe him, which begs the larger question -- what is wrong with Charlie Sheen?  I've heard "manic depressive" thrown around, but do a quick search for "Narcissistic Personality Disorder."   I believe you'll find a picture of Sheen along with the definition.

cojo oscars 2011 best dressed list

Cojo's best dressed picks ...

Steven 'Cojo' Cojocaru has revealed his picks for the best dressed and worst dressed celebrities to walk the red carpet last night at the 2011 Oscars.

His favorites, who seem to repeatedly land at the top of this list: Sandra Bullock, Halle Berry, Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Cojocaru issued a fashion citation to Jennifer Lawrence, comparing her red dress to a Baywatch bathing suit.  The real clinker of the night, according to Cojo, was the white dress of Nicole Kidman.  His comment: "She looked like a hostess from the Panda Express."

lady gaga born this way1

Lady Gaga is definitely going for the shock factor in her new Born This Way video.  With objects protruding from her face, scary looking skeletons and talk of a new race within the human race, the video is very interesting and artistic but also a little unsettling.

Referring to herself as Mother Monster, Gaga recites her manifesto for nearly the first three minutes of the video.

Gaga's choreographer Laurieann Gibson speaks highly of the video: "I will tell you that it's a life-changing experience.  You can expect the highest level of execution in vocal music, art and dance...but you will be shocked."

And shocked we were! Yes there are a few normal dance scenes in the video, but for the most part the video is mind blowing.

No need to take our word for it ... have a look for yourself:

charlie sheen gma interview

Charlie talks candidly to GMA's Andrea Canning ...

It is painful to watch and never ending.  The fight between Charlie Sheen and the executives of Two and a Half Men seems to be one sided, with Charlie keeping the fire stoked.

Sheen is on a media blitz and is talking to anyone who will listen -- clearly hell-bent on smearing his bosses while portraying himself as the wronged party.  Radio shows, television interviews and now rumored book deals.  Each new soundbite is more bizarre than the last.

He announced on ABC's Good Morning America that CBS is "in breach, radical breach."  The actor said he will definitely file a lawsuit seeking "tons and tons" in damages.  Rumors indicate that the amount is $300 million.

During this portion of the interview Sheen either had a smoke hanging out of his mouth or was flexing a red wire that looked like a fuse for an explosive device.  A not so subtle message aimed at Chuck Lorre?  Seems likely.

anne hathaway oscar dresses

Anne Hathaway and James Franco co-hosted the 83rd Annual Academy Awards on Sunday night live from the Kodak Theater.  She clearly shined while her male counterpart was a little flat and decidedly lackluster.

Hathaway dazzled the audience with one fabulous glam gown after another, as evidenced by our photo gallery.

Winners List, Photos, Video

One of the highlights, according to Hathaway, came at the end of the show when the P22 5th Grade Chorus from Staten Island, NY closed the show with their amazing rendition of Over The Rainbow.

Hathaway did some singing of her own in a spoof that was aimed at Hugh Jackman.  The actress really CAN sing.  Check it out below and we've followed that up with a pic of James Franco, in drag, channeling Marilyn Monroe:

kirk douglas and melissa leo oscars 2011

Kirk Douglas was a ham, Melissa Leo dropped the F-Bomb ...

The big winner for Best Picture last night at the 83rd Annual Academy Awards was, as expected, The King's Speech.  In addition Colin Firth won Best Actor, Tom Hooper earned Best Director and David Seidler took top honors for Original Screenplay.

Complete Winners List

Best Actress, also as expected, went to Natalie Portman for her performance in Black Swan.  Best Supporting Actor and Actress honors went to Christian Bale and Melissa Leo for their portrayals in The Fighter.

Leo, who received her award from veteran actor and "ham" Kirk Douglas, dropped the F-Bomb during her bizarre acceptance speech.  She later apologized for the gaffe, claiming she "just got caught up in the moment."

A show highlight was the amazing performance by PS22 5th Grade Chorus, under the direction of Staten Island, New York's resident pied piper Mr. "B".

Check it Leo's F-Bomb speech below followed by more Oscar moments in our photo gallery:
