celebrity planking

Planking, aka the lying down game, is a popular activity in various parts of the world.  It consists of lying face down in an unusual or incongruous location. The hands must touch the sides of the body, and having a photograph of the participant taken and posted on the Internet is an integral part of the game.

It first became all the rage in England but has recently become an equally huge fad in America.  A trending topic on Twitter for weeks, people have been posting images of themselves in full planking mode.

Doctors and nurses at one medical facility were suspended when they planked on the job and posted the picture.  There have also been several reported arrests for planking on police cars or splayed out on famous statues.

Celebrities are into planking and even New Zealand Prime Minister John Key and his son Max uploaded a planking pic to Facebook.

This writer even got into the act while performing her legitimate day job duties:

kristyn caddell and chris hansen flinging in florida

Chris Hansen, known for catching sex offenders via hidden camera, may have just gotten a taste of his own medicine.  The To Catch A Predator host was secretly filmed getting cozy with a woman who is not his wife.

Hansen, 51, was spotted with news anchor Kristyn Caddell, 30, at the Ritz Carlton in Manalapan, Florida having dinner.  They were filmed as part of an undercover sting by the National Enquirer. The camera crew also documented their return to her Palm Beach apartment, where the couple reportedly remained together for the night.

Hansen resides in Connecticut with his wife and two children, but has been in Florida investigating a disappearance on and off for the past four months.

The irony is that Hansen's popular Dateline series features stories about older men who prey on younger women.  Hansen, 21 years older than Caddell, has not yet come forward with a statement.

Check out the video here.

aaron carter opens up about michael jackson

Aaron Carter, who spent a month in rehab earlier this year for "emotional and spiritual issues," is speaking out about his relationship with Michael Jackson.

Aaron, 23, claims Jackson gave him cocaine and alcohol when he was 15.

In an interview with Australia's OK! magazine, Carter says, "I never talked about it... This is the first time. I do ... I miss Michael ... I have spent such incredible times with him. I did things with him that nobody else did ... But I was also troubled about what he did to me."

When the interviewer asks if Jackson gave him alcohol, Carter responds, "Yes, he gave me wine. I mean, I could have refused, but I was 15."

"He gave me cocaine. I felt weird about that and other stuff ... We spoke afterwards, hours and hours, on the phone. I admired Michael, but his behavior bothered me a lot. Then my mother called the police..."

Jackson was often accused of having inappropriate relationships with children after being acquitted of child sexual abuse in 2005.

Aaron,the younger brother of Backstreet Boys' Nick Carter, is hoping to relaunch his music career and is currently working on a new album.

katy perry and russell brand buy new home

Katy Perry and Russell Brand have purchased a new home in the Laurel Canyon area of the Hollywood Hills.

The couple shelled out $6.5 million for the Mediterranean-style mansion built in 1925, and previously owned by former National Lampoon CEO Daniel Laikin.

The 8,835 square foot home with 7 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms was used on the reality TV show "The Bachelor."

The three story mansion sits on just under three acres which includes a broad lawn at the front of the house with a circular driveway, two detached guest houses, a grotto-style swimming pool, and a small stream with a Japanese-style arched bridge tumbling down a rock waterfall into the pool.

Living areas inside the main house include a living room with wood floors, double-height hand-painted wood beam ceiling, stone mantelpiece and minstrel's balcony, a formal dining room with an antique hand-painted honeycomb pattern ceiling, an eat-in kitchen, a family room with antique carved stone corner fireplace, a billiard room, and a media room with wide-screen projector system and built-in snack counter.

Perry and Brand recently put their Los Feliz home on the market for $3,395,000. (See photos)

jonathan rhys meyers suicide attempt

Actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers was transported to a London hospital on Tuesday after an apparent suicide attemptThe Tudors star had reportedly taken an undisclosed number of pills before phoning 999, London's equivalent of 911, for help.

The Sun is reporting that the 33-year-old was found slumped over on the floor of his home when paramedics arrived.  He refused treatment, prompting the rescue team to call for police intervention.  Officers transported the reluctant actor to a nearby medical facility.

A representative from Scotland Yard said: "We can confirm that we were called by the London Ambulance Service to an address following reports of a man refusing treatment.  Police intervened, and the man was taken by ambulance to a central London hospital.  That was the end of our involvement."

The actor has struggled with alcohol addiction for years, with five stints in rehab, the latest was earlier this month at a five-star facility in South Africa

He has also been removed from several airline flights after displaying belligerent behavior.  The latest incident occurred last month.

Rhys Meyers was released from the hospital in the early hours of Wednesday.  He emerged looking red-eyed.  When asked to make a statement, he replied: "No comment."

Nadya Suleman, mother of fourteen, needs some help... and fast!  In a recent interview with InTouch magazine, she reportedly revealed how she feels about parenting -- and it's not good.

Among her off-the-wall admissions: "I hate babies, they disgust me.  My older six are animals, getting more and more out of control, because I have no time to properly discipline them."

"The only way I can cope is to lock myself in the bathroom and cry.  Sometimes I sit there for hours and even eat my lunch on the toilet floor.  Anything to get peace and quiet.  Some days I have thought of killing myself.  I cannot cope."

The article includes a photo of Suleman's children in the messy home, with one of the kids eating drywall.

The financial burden has been a constant problem for Octomom.  She has been threatened with foreclosure and continues to be badgered by the mortgage holder each time she falls behind on her payments.

If this latest report is the real deal, it seems like an opportune time for L.A. Social Services to intervene.

lindsay lohan at a downtown womens center where she will do 480

Now the real work begins: 480 hours of community service ...

After spending 35 days confined to her Venice Beach home, Lindsay Lohan's tracking device will be removed from her ankle today and she will be free to come and go as she pleases.

The troubled actress managed to squeeze in a small slice of drama near the end of her court-mandated confinement.  She was hauled into court for an emergency hearing after testing positive for alcohol after a rooftop BBQ gathering with friends.

The L.A. Probation Dept. demanded the test, unaware that her drug and alcohol testing order had lapsed.  A judge quickly resolved the matter, after admonishing Lohan to refrain from partying for the remainder of her home incarceration.

Lupe Martinez, who works for Sentinel Electronic Monitoring, was spotted at Lohan's home and was reportedly authorized by the L.A. Sheriff's department to remove the bracelet any time after 10:20 a.m.

Lilo will remain on probation for the misdemeanor jewelry theft and must complete 480 hours of community service before her name is completely cleared.  She'll divide her time between the Downtown Women's Center and the L.A. County Morgue.

We've done the math ... if the actress begins now and works eight hours per day for the next two months, she'll finally be able to wipe the slate clean.

She'll then be free to begin filming the big screen biopic Gotti: Three Generations with John Travolta, Kelly Preston and Al Pacino.
