The majority of Mega Millions lottery ticket holders are tearing their non-winning numbers into tiny little pieces this morning.  Three ticket-holders from Kansas, Illinois and Maryland, on the other hand, have hit the jackpot and will split $640 million.

The winning numbers in Friday night's drawing were 02-04-23-38-46 and the Mega Ball 23.  Each winner will receive $213 million before taxes.

Mega Millions lottery is played in 42 states plus the District of Columbia and the Virgin Islands.  Lottery officials indicate that during the last few hours before the drawing Friday night clerks across the country were generating $1 million in sales per minute.

According to Illinois Lottery spokesman Mike Lang, the winning quick pick ticket in his state was sold at Moto Mart in the small town of Red Bud, near St. Louis.

The Maryland winner purchased the ticket at a retail store in Baltimore and the Kansas ticket was sold in the northeastern part of the state.

whitney and cissy houston

Cissy Houston is finally ready to break her silence several months after the sudden death of her daughter Whitney Houston in L.A..

The family matriarch, 78, sat down for an interview with New Jersey TV station My9.  The chat took place at the New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, where Whitney sang and her funeral service was held.

How is Cissy coping with the loss of her daughter?  “I have my moments.  I'm not there yet.  I don't think I'm any more courageous than anyone else. I am a true believer in God, if I could bring her back I would, but that's not possible."

Asked about the singers struggles with addiction and if she feels responsible for that, "I know I did the best I could. I don’t blame myself. I know I did the best I could for everything."

She continued, “My children are my whole life. She was very special to me... she was my only daughter, and a good one.  Looked out for her family.  I'm very proud of my daughter.  She accomplished a whole lot in the short time that she had here . . .she was a very wonderful person."

The L.A. Coroner ruled that Houston's death was due to accidental drowning, with heart disease and cocaine listed as contributing factors.

Whitney's only daughter Bobbi Kristini Brown got a big break thanks to Tyler Perry, who will feature her in a recurring role on his TBS sitcom For Better or Worse beginning in July.

nicki minaj shows much during idol performance

Nicki Minaj had millions of television viewers on the edge of their seats last night during her live performance of Starships on the American Idol elimination show.

The decidedly upbeat dance routine that was enthusiastically executed by the talented entertain threatened to unleash one or both of her breasts throughout the musical number.

Afterward show host Ryan Seacrest stated the obvious, "Well you guys enjoyed it. That was fun.  There were parts of that performance that were a little high risk ... if you know what I'm saying."

Minaj looked slightly sheepish and quietly responded, "I know, I know."

At one point during the song the bootylicious celeb actually tucked a wayward body part back into her skimpy top.  Check out the video below:

twins becomes triplets

A long-awaited Twins sequel is in the works and will morph into Triplets with the addition of comedian Eddie Murphy added to the mix.

Danny DeVito and Arnold Schwarzenegger will reprise their 1988 roles as mismatched twin brothers who were part of a secret experiment to create a perfect child at a genetics laboratory.  The twist comes when they discover they have a long lost triplet bro.

With the governator back in the film business it was just a matter of time before someone cooked up a project that he could really get his biceps around.

The 24-year-old hit was Schwarzenegger's highest grossing comedy, pulling in $216 million worldwide.  DeVito is still basking in the glory of his recent mega blockbuster hit The Lorax.

The new project remains in the early stages of development.

josh kelley and katherine heigl lafd visit

A fire crew from the LAFD responded to a fire alarm at 1:36 p.m. Thursday that originated from the posh Los Feliz residence of Katherine Heigl and Josh Kelley.

When three fire fighters arrived they were met by the rocker who explained that there was no fire.  Kelley speculated that steam had apparently set off an early warning system alarm in the residence.

Inquiring minds are eager to know the exact origin of the steam.  Could it have come from that hot tub that set tongues waging back in 2010 when the neighbors reported the couple for engaging in an over-the-top splash and romp session.

Responding LAPD officers were met at the gate by Kelley and his decidedly tipsy bikini clad spouse.

rihanna in a tuxedo style coat dress

Rihanna made quite a stir this morning when she set out from the Mandarin Hotel in London on her way to a BBC Radio 1 appearance with Scott Mills.

The Barbardian songstress was wearing what looked like a slightly over-sized blazer.  The paisley-like fabric featured a black trimmed front that seemed to suggest that she was wearing nothing underneath.

Her tuxedo-styled coat dress was secured in front by what appeared to be a single button.

Suffice it to say the paparazzi had a field day trying to capture photos from every conceivable angle.

Recent rumors suggest that RiRi is having a fling with the star of Two and a Half Men.

During a press conference for her new film Battleship, a reporter asked if they'd be seeing an appearance from a certain Ashton Kutcher.  She replied, "Wow, how disappointing was that question.  I'm happy and I'm single, if that's what you're really asking."

Check out more views of the tuxedo dress below:

lindsay lohan all smiles after court hearing

Lindsay Lohan has finally fulfilled her probation obligations according to Judge Stephanie Sautner.

The saga began nearly five years ago.  Sautner characterized the long and painful legal journey as "the endless 2007 DUI case."

Having finished her community service obligations and court-mandated psychological therapy sessions, the actress has been released from formal probation.  There is one proviso--she must now obey all laws for 2-1/2 years of informal probation.

Her Honor remarked, "I know it's kinda hard when people are following you all over the place ... but that's the life you chose."  As a parting comment she offered Lohan some advice, "Stop nightclubbing and focus on your work."

Lohan, dressed in a teal Givenchy pantsuit, was glowing as she made her way from the courthouse.
