Dr. Conrad Murray will testify in the Michael Jackson wrongful death lawsuit filed by Katherine Jackson, who is looking to collect damages from AEG.
Michael’s mother wants Murray to testify about comments he made in his documentary, in which Murray said AEG honchos told him MJ was on “death skid row.”
AEG, Murray claimed, boasted in 2009 that it owned “the toilet paper he wipes his ass with” and “the f**kin’ popsicles that his children are sucking on.”
Referring to his ill-fated This Is It concert dates, the promoter allegedly told Murray, Jackson’s physician, “if he doesn’t getMore >
Oprah Winfrey took to Twitter last night to ask Nielsen viewers to watch her cable network OWN instead of the Grammy Awards, a pathetic move that drew criticism from her OWN followers and the market research company alike.

She later added, “Commercial Grammy people… u can turn to OWN.”

Dr. Conrad Murray was sentenced to four years behind bars today, the longest possible prison term for involuntary manslaughter. Needless to say, Michael Jackson’s family is adamant that he deserves every day of that sentence, and then some.
His mother, Katherine Jackson, made that abundantly clear in recent weeks.
In Murray’s official Probation Report, Katherine lashes out at Murray for his documentary, in which he lays blame on Michael and denies any wrongdoing.
Katherine feels Murray’s four-year sentence is “insufficient.”
The report says, “During filming, he repeatedly stated that heMore >

In an interview conducted shortly before he was convicted of involuntary manslaughter, Dr. Conrad Murray says he doesn’t feel guilty about Michael Jackson dying.
“I didn’t do anything wrong,” the cardiologist insists.
The Today Show aired portions of an intense sit-down interview with Murray that was conducted before the guilty verdict was reached by a jury earlier this week.
In it, he completely contradicts what he told police.
During the interview, Murray says he put Jackson to sleep that fateful day, then left the room to talk on the phone,More >
Michael Jackson is not exactly portrayed glowingly in the new documentary centered on Dr. Conrad Murray. No wonder there is outrage among his family and fans.
The controversial film debuted in the UK last night, just three days after Murray was found guilty of manslaughter in the death of Jackson. One major revelation:
Emphatically, the doctor states that AEG Live CEO Randy Phillips told him before the This Is It tour Michael Jackson “does not have a f**king cent” to his name.
Murray claims Phillips pulled him aside after a meeting about the London concerts and angrily said: “What’s thisMore >
Just hours before closing arguments in Dr. Conrad Murray’s involuntary manslaughter trial, a documentary about the embattled physician is being shopped to networks.
Murray, who faces up to four years in prison in the death of Michael Jackson, has been a part of filming the documentary since being charged earlier this year.
Dr. Murray, as we know, has decided not to take the stand at his trial, but has given long in depth interviews to the film crew … for whatever that’s worth.
“This project has been in the works since Murray’s arrest,” says a source. “It was originally conceived to helpMore >

For now, she has nothing to worry about. Craig and Shawn Christy are still awaiting trial and will remain behind bars until a court dateMore >
A new tell-all book about former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin claims she had a one-night stand with former NBA star Glen Rice way back in 1987.
Is that true? Does it matter? The answer to both is highly debatable. Is this the greatest rumor of all time? To that, we might have to answer yes.
At the time, she was single and working at a TV station as a sports reporter; Rice was a college basketball star visiting Alaska for a tournament.
Glen Rice scored 18,336 career points and won a title with the ’00 Lakers. If he scored with Sarah Palin, he wins the title of Most Randomly HystericalMore >
The Amazing Spider-Man doesn’t hit theaters until July 3 of next year, but the first trailer has been released, and should only fuel the buzz for the film.
Originally, Spider-Man 4 was planned for release in summer 2011, but the film was cancelled due to director Sam Raimi’s withdrawal from the project.
Sony, in turn, decided to reboot the big-name franchise with new director Marc Webb and Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone and Rhys Ifans leading the cast.
