Brooke Mueller to Re-Enter Rehab

She to pull an Amy Winehouse and say “no, no, no,” but with her friends afraid she’ll actually end up like Amy Winehouse, Brooke Mueller has agreed to enter a new rehab facility.

The troubled ex-wife of Charlie Sheen was arrested last week on drug possession charges, while also accused of punching a woman in the face. She is due back in an Aspen-Colorado court later this month.

According to TMZ sources, Mueller will soon leave for an undisclosed treatment facility in the Los Angeles area. Sheen will be in charge of the former couple’s two sons during her time away, a less scary proposition since he stopped residing with numerous “goddesses” and acting like a “warlock.”

We wish Brooke all the best in this attempt to get clean. Let’s hope the 17th time is the charm.

Ryan Braun, National League MVP, Reportedly Tests Positive For Banned Substance

Reigning National League MVP Ryan Braun has reportedly tested positive for a banned substance and is appealing to Major League Baseball, according to reports.

ESPN cited two sources Saturday in first reporting the news, saying the 28-year-old Milwaukee Brewers star tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone.

A spokesman for Braun said in a statement that “there are highly unusual circumstances surrounding this case which will support Ryan’s complete innocence.”

“There was absolutely no intentional violation of the program,” Matthew Hiltzik said in a statement sent by the four-time All-Star left fielder’s representatives.

“Ryan has impeccable character and no previous history, unfortunately, because of the process we have to maintain confidentiality and are not able to discuss it any further.”

“we are confident that he will ultimately be exonerated.”

The case is still being appealed to an arbitrator under MLB’s drug program.

Major League Baseball does not announce positive tests and penalties in drug cases involving initial positives until all arbitration issues are concluded.

The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the appeal is still ongoing and said Braun has known about the positive test since late October.

One of the people involved said that the appeals process regarding the outfielder’s case is not likely to be concluded until January at the earliest.

That person said after being informed of the positive test, Braun asked to have another urine test taken, and that test was within normal range.

If suspended, Ryan Braun wouldn’t be eligible to play for the NL Central champions until May 31 at Dodger Stadium, barring any postponements.

The 50-game suspension means he would miss the first 57 days of the major league season, losing about $1.87 million of his $6 million salary.

He hit .312 with 33 homers and 111 RBIs in 2011 and led Milwaukee to the NLCS, where the Brewers lost to the eventual World Series champion Cardinals.

Nicole Scherzinger Speaks on Rachel Crow Ousting

For the record, Nicole Scherzinger did not send Rachel Crow home on Thursday night.

This X Factor judge instead chose to let America decide between the 13-year old and Marcus Canty, yet Scherzinger is the panelist facing the harshest fan rebuke after Crow’s name was called for elimination.

“My heart comes from the right place, so I get really sensitive when people are negative,” the former Pussycat Doll told reporters after the show. “Don’t [critics] know I only want the best for every single person?”

Nicole added that she thought Canty would be selected by voters, though they never got a chance to hear Crow’s incredible survival song.

“When I saw that look on her face, [I felt] that I had let her down, like I dropped her,” Scherzinger, who shed tears for 30 minutes after the episode, said. “I could have been holding on and I dropped her. She is the sunshine of our show, so it’s hard to see her cry.”

Crow, however, has come out and said the public should not blame Nicole, while the young crooner’s fortunes are already looking up: sources say Disney has requested a meeting with Rachel.

Taylor Armstrong: Why I’m Sharing My Story Now

Taylor Armstrong will release a memoir in February that details the alleged abuse she suffered at the hands of estranged late husband Russell Armstrong.

Given the timing of the book, along with the numerous interviews this Real Housewife has given on the topic since Russell killed himself in August, it’s impossible not to wonder why Armstrong is speaking out now. It’s a matter of safety, Taylor claims.

T. Armstrong

“Until Russell’s suicide, I didn’t feel safe to tell anyone for fear of my own safety and the safety of my daughter,” Armstrong tells ABC News. “With Russell’s passing, I now feel safe to bring my story into the light, to help all battered and abused women, and men, and aid them in their struggle.

“From the bottom of my heart, I believe if my book can help others find the courage to deal with the pain and fear of their abusive relationships, I will have made a real difference in their lives.”

What do you think of Armstrong releasing such a memoir?

(5-year-old Kennedy) With Russell’s passing, I now feel safe to bring my story into the light, to help all battered and abused women, and men, and aid them in their struggle.”

Rachel Crow on X Factor Elimination: Don’t Blame Nicole!

It was the most emotional scene of The X Factor season: Rachel Crow, 13, falling into sobs as soon after she eliminated from the competition this week… while the crowd booed Nicole Scherzinger for not casting a vote that would have saved the contestant.

After the show, however, Rachel was far more calm than many in the audience.

“I am not feeling the greatest, but I will be fine,” the singer told the press, adding of Scherzinger: “She told me that she was sorry. I don’t know why she said that… I told her it was okay and not her fault.”

Considering the hate-filled messages directed at Nicole and Paula Abdul last week, Crow also issued this plea to fans:

“I want to say to all those people, ‘Stop, Please.’ [Scherzinger] is the nicest person and the most beautiful person inside and out… She is amazing, and I don’t understand why people are taking it out on her. It’s no one’s fault. It’s not even America’s fault. It’s no one person’s fault. It’s just what God had in store for me. And I will be okay.”

Do you think Rachel should have been voted out?

Angelina Jolie Gushes Over Brad Pitt, Family

Angelina Jolie is opening up more these days than ever before.

A few days after appearing on Nightline and addressing the issue of marriage, excerpts from an interview Jolie gave to Marie Claire have become available online.

“He has expanded my life in ways I never imagined,” the actress tells the magazine. “We built a family. He is not just the love of my life, he is my family. I hold that very dear. I suppose what I’ve learned from Brad is to be able to have the kind of family whose happiness and well-being comes before your own. I’m very, very grateful to have such a loving family, and I wouldn’t have that without him.”

Sounds like she’s a fan of the guy, doesn’t it?

Jolie also touched on her children (Maddox will “take care” of her when she’s sad; Pax is “extremely wild.”) and made it sounds like her and Pitt might someday add to their adorable brood.

“Nothing planned at the moment, but we just don’t know,” she said. “I could end up pregnant.”

Sinead O’Connor: Married to Barry Herridge!

Sinead O’Connor tied the knot yesterday. The lucky man is Barry Herridge.

Just as she’d planned, the singer and her fiance said “I do” in quite the non-traditional fashion – while sitting in the back of a pink Cadillac in Las Vegas.

“She wanted to do the whole thing in a Cadillac. That was her thing,” a source said of the ceremony, which began with the pair arriving around 7 p.m.

In a pink, low-cut dress revealing her tattoos, the “Nothing Compares 2 U” singer filled out paperwork before settling into the Caddy on the Vegas Strip.

“It wasn’t a traditional dress, but it wasn’t a traditional wedding either,” says the source. “Sinead cried during the vows and had to wipe her eyes.”

After the 10 minute ceremony, Sinead O’Connor and her new husband lit candles as employees of the chapel sang “Happy Birthday” to the bride.

It was also her 45th birthday, after all!

Dottie Sandusky Releases Statement, Stands By Husband

For the first time since her husband was arrested on multiple charges of heinous sex crimes against young boys, Dottie Sandusky has spoken out.

Dottie says she’s been “shocked and dismayed by the allegations made against” the ex-Penn State coach, adding:

Jerry Sandusky Mug Shot

“As the mother of six children, I have been devastated by these accusations.

“Our children, our extended family and friends know how much Jerry and I love kids and have always tried to help and care for them. We would never do anything to hurt them. I am so sad anyone would make such a terrible accusation which is absolutely untrue. We don’t know why these young men have made these false accusations, but we want everyone to know they are untrue.”

Earlier today, Dottie helped bail her husband out of jail by writing a personal check for $50,000. He remains confined to the couple’s house and, if his lawyer has any brains at all, will stop making public statements such as these.
