  • Reality Diving Show Splash Sends Another Celebrity to the Hospital

    Posted by Vanessa Ryan

    nicole splash injury

    I've been sucked into the ABC show Splash because of my kids...they love it.  Since I'm already watching with them, I decided early on to find something about it to like...and that ended up being Nicole Eggert.  Her story is pretty cool and I've been rooting for her ever since.  Well, TMZ.com reports that she was hospitalized last Thursday after a high dive went wrong. :/

    Sources tell TMZ the former Baywatch star was attempting a dive that included multiple back flips, but something went wrong and she landed in the water back first. The sources said the impact looked so painful, on-site EMTs rushed to pull the 41-year-old Eggert out of the pool and transport her to a nearby hospital.

    Splash insiders say Eggert didn't break any bones, and was released from the hospital a few hours later, but doctors are keeping an eye on her for any internal injuries and are monitoring her kidneys in particular.

    There is a long list of injured contenders... Chuy Bravo, Chelsea Handler’s assistant on her late night E! talk show, withdrew from the competition after fracturing his heel during diving practice and Miss Alabama USA, Katherine Webb, bowed out last week due to a back injury. Extreme skier Rory Bushfield ruptured his eardrum in a dive a few weeks ago, but refused to quit the show.

    Nicole had some trouble with a dive early on in the show...check it out below...

    Hope she is ok!  You can watch Splash Tuesday nights at 7pm CST on ABC.

  • MUGSHOTS: Reese Witherspoon and Her Husband Arrested

    Posted by Vanessa Ryan

    jim reese

    I didn't believe it when I read it and I still am kinda like whaaaaat?  "It" was the story that Reese Witherspoon was arrested on a disorderly conduct charge in Atlanta early last Friday (4/19.)

    According to Georgia police,  her husband, Jim Toth, 42, was pulled over after midnight when an officer observed him failing to stay in his lane while driving.  Reese was then disruptive by exiting the car before and during a sobriety test administered to her husband, according to the police report.

    The officer writes, "I had to tell Mrs. Witherspoon several times to get back into the vehicle before she did so. I told Mrs. Witherspoon that I would arrest her the next time she got out of the vehicle."

    As Toth was being arrested on suspicion of DUI, Witherspoon again stepped out of the vehicle, according to the report. When the officer told her to get back inside the car, she reportedly stated "that she was a 'US Citizen' and that she was allowed to 'stand on American ground.'"

    The report also notes, "Mrs. Witherspoon asked, 'Do you know my name?' I answered, 'No, I don't need to know your name.' I then added, 'right now.' Mrs. Witherspoon stated, 'You're about to find out who I am.'"

    The 37-year-old star later warned the officer that he would be on "national news," according to the report.

    The couple was released jailed briefly and then release on bond around 3:30 am ET.

    Witherspoon is working on a movie, The Good Lie, in Atlanta. She was in New York Sunday night for the premiere of her new film Mud, but did not speak with reporters.  Her co-star, Matthew McConaughey, also declined to comment, telling reporters, "I'm not going to comment on that since that's fresh."

    Witherspoon has released the following statement: "Out of respect for the ongoing legal situation, I cannot comment on everything that is being reported right now. But I do want to say, I clearly had one drink too many and I am deeply embarrassed about the things I said. It was definitely a scary situation and I was frightened for my husband, but that is no excuse. I was disrespectful to the officer who was just doing his job. I have nothing but respect for the police and I’m very sorry for my behavior."

    Witherspoon married Toth in March of 2011. They welcomed a son, Tennessee James, last September.

    I'm not saying Reese is above this, I'm just still really surprised that it happened... that she didn't get herself together enough to think of what her being arrested would result in, a media frenzy.  Embarrasement of her kids.  You know?

  • Garth Brooks Sued By Former Associate, Allegations Very Unflattering

    Posted by Vanessa Ryan


    Garth Brooks a diva?  Can we believe it?

    A new lawsuit is claiming Garth was just that, turning down roles and potential deals with media outlets including Disney and FOX while making outrageous demands.  This all being claimed by former business associate Lisa Sanderson according to TMZ.

    Garth apparently hired Sanderson from to help launch his TV and movie career.

    Sanderson says Garth turned down acting roles in high-profile films such as Saving Private Ryan and Twister because he demanded and didn't get the lead roles in those films. The suit says of the Saving Private Ryan deal, "He wanted to be the star and was unwilling to share the limelight with...Tom Hanks, Matt Damon and Edward Burns." As for Twister, Sanderson says Garth wasn't willing to be upstaged by the tornado in the film.

    Sanderson goes on to call Garth a "paranoid, angry, deceitful and vindictive man who will turn against those closest to him on a dime." She's seeking $425,000 in allegedly unpaid bonuses and salary from Garth, as well as punitive damages.

    Hard to believe, Garth may be a big deal, but I don't think he'd ever think he was THAT big of a deal.  Huh.  What is your opinion?

  • Child Draws Picture That Probably Mortified Their Mom!

    Posted by Vanessa Ryan


    Someone on Reddit posted a picture that their friend's daughter drew (above) after being assigned to write a one sentence about a family member and draw a picture. 

    Well now.

    Bet the teacher got a good laugh about it.  Or they got on the phone immediately and called the mom who I would assume would be super embarrassed?? I would be.  Which is why I only drink wine from a dark plastic cup in the dark after my kids go to bed.  ;)

  • Robin Roberts Hoping to Return to Good Morning America Next Week After Being Hospitalized

    Posted by Vanessa Ryan


    Have you been missing Robin Roberts on ABC's Good Morning America this week like I have?  Robin has opened up about her absence via Facebook.

    "Last week, in the middle of my Key West vacation, I began not to feel well," she wrote. "Nothing serious, just under the weather. I contacted my doctors and flew back to NYC. They felt it best to admit me into the hospital for a few days. Seems my young immune system needed a little boost to fight off 'opportunistic infections.'"

    "My doctors assured me that this was NOT because I was working or doing too much, too soon," she continued. "It's extremely common, post bone marrow transplant, to have complications. I'm blessed that mine have not been severe."

    Roberts assured her fans that she's "feeling MUCH better, and will relax at home for the rest of the week. According to Roberts, she'll return to the show "next week."

    Roberts first returned to GMA on February 20, exactly five months after she began medical leave to undergo treatment for a rare blood disorder.

    Best wishes to Robin!

    barbie no makeup

    Barbie always has it together, no matter what she's doing or what her latest career is, she looks fantastic.  Ever wonder what she'd look like without all the makeup, moisturizers, before  her perfectly straight and white teeth, fake lashes, hair conditioning treatments at her hair stylists, etc?  Artist Eddi Aguirre Cendejaz attempted to envision it, and hey look at that...she looks...rough.

    Kinda fun to see yes?

  • FBI Releases VIDEO and PICTURES of Boston Marathon Bombing Suspects

    Posted by Vanessa Ryan

    bombing suspects

    The FBI released video and photos of two "armed and extremely dangerous" suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing and is asking for the public's help in identifying them.

    "Somebody out there knows these individuals as friends, neighbors, co-workers or family members," Boston FBI Special Agent in Charge Richard DesLauriers said at a Thursday evening briefing.

    "Though it may be difficult, the nation is counting on those with information to come forward and provide it to us.

    "We consider them to be armed and extremely dangerous," DesLauriers added. "No one should approach them...If you see these men, contact law enforcement."

    bombing suspects

    The images show two men in baseball caps and dark jackets who were seen walking together through the crowd at Monday's iconic race.

    The man in the dark cap with a black backpack is being called Suspect No. 1. The other man, Suspect No. 2, is wearing a white cap backward and carrying a lighter-colored backpack.

    Suspect No. 2 set down a backpack at the site of the second blast, minutes before the explosion, DesLauriers said. He was then seen walking west down Boylston St.

    The public is being asked to call a hotline, 1-800-CALL-FBI, with tips or visit the bureau's website, bostonmarathontips.fbi.gov.

    "No bit of information, no matter how small or seemingly inconsequential, is too small for us to see," DesLauriers said. "Each piece moves us forward toward justice."
