CHICAGO, April 4, 2013 -- Chaz Ebert issued the following statement Thursday about the passing of her husband, Roger Ebert, a day after he celebrated 46 years as a film critic:
"I am devastated by the loss of my love, Roger -- my husband, my friend, my confidante and oh-so-brilliant partner of over 20 years. He fought a courageous fight. I've lost the love of my life and the world has lost a visionary and a creative and generous spirit who touched so many people all over the world. We had a lovely, lovely life together, more beautiful and epic than a movie. It had its highs and the lows, but was always experienced with good humor, grace and a deep abiding love for each other.
"Roger was a beloved husband, stepfather to Sonia and Jay, and grandfather to Raven, Emil, Mark and Joseph. Just yesterday he was saying how his grandchildren were "the best things in my life." He was happy and radiating satisfaction over the outpouring of responses to his blog about his 46th year as a film critic. But he was also getting tired of his fight with cancer, and said if this takes him, he has lived a great and full life.
"We were getting ready to go home today for hospice care, when he looked at us, smiled, and passed away. No struggle, no pain, just a quiet, dignified transition.
"We are touched by all the kindness and the outpouring of love we've received. And I want to echo what Roger said in his last blog, thank you for going on this journey with us."
Heidi Klum says raw maternal instinct led her into a life-threatening rip current to save her 7-year-old son.
"I did what any mother would do," the supermodel told People magazine in an interview published Wednesday.
Newly released photos of the harrowing Hawaiian incident show the "Project Runway" star pulling her young son Henry to safety through churning, waist-deep
waters and then straining to drag one of his nannies out by the armpits.
The photos show a very different side.
She's seen rushing into the choppy surf headfirst, struggling to keep a grip on her son's wrist, falling down as she hauls one disoriented nanny out of the terrifying tide and slipping out of her bikini top amid the chaos.
Her bodyguard beau Martin Kirsten appears hunched over on all fours in one photo, apparently trying to catch his breath after the scary but successful rescue effort.
"Henry swam out of it. I grabbed him at the shore. The nannies were the ones in much deeper trouble," Klum told People.
"Never underestimate the power of the ocean," Klum warned.
The blond beauty was celebrating Easter on Oahu with her kids - including Leni, 8, Johan, 6, and Lou, 3 - when the powerful undertow caught Henry by surprise.
Henry is her eldest son with ex-husband Seal.
She lamented the fact that a witness took photos instead of lending a hand.
"The family was surprised that we were being photographed and no one would come help us," she told People.
Klum and her family returned safely to Los Angeles Monday, and she quickly tried to play down her obvious heroics in the People interview.
"These photos taken recently look much worse that it really was that day," she said.

LOS ANGELES, CA - APRIL 03: (L-R) Actors Matthew Gray Gubler, Dianna Agron, and Darren Criss attend Vogue's 'Triple Threats' dinner hosted by Sally Singer and Lisa Love at Goldie's on April 3, 2013 in Los Angeles, California. (Photo by Donato Sardella/WireImage)
Celebrating a New Video Series in L.A.

Last night a steady stream of guests packed into Goldie’s on West Third Street in Los Angeles for an intimate dinner to fete the upcoming launch of the Triple Threat video series on Vogue.com. The new restaurant quickly filled with the likes of Ethan Peck, Agyness Deyn, and Tallulah Harlech, who were joined by Jennifer Meyer, Poppy Delevingne, and CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund winner Greg Chait, and soon there was barely room to stand. The cozy seating arrangements only made the mood livelier, though. “How about I sit there?” teased the triply talented singer-dancer-actress Alison Brie, cheekily pointing to a middle bench seat across one of the picnic-like tables before climbing over Brittany Snow and shimmying her way in between Chord Overstreet and Olivia Munn.
“It’s a real pleasure to be in L.A. with everyone I love,” said Vogue’s Creative Digital Director Sally Singer, who flew in from New York to join West Coast Director Lisa Love in cohosting the occasion, which Singer explained was equal parts a celebration of the three “super-talented” actresses Anna Kendrick, Dianna Agron, and Brie, who star in the music clips, which were directed by Vogue.com contributor Jacob Brown, as well as a toast to the videos’ sartorial theme and L.A. style staple—denim. As China Chow pulled a light blue jean Theyskens’ Theory bomber jacket over her shoulders, Irene Neuwirth and Jessica de Ruiter debated their favorite denim looks: vintage for Neuwirth vs high-waisted Acne Studios for de Ruiter. Kirsty Hume’s favorite way to wear jeans? “Every day!” announced the model with a broad smile, and Nikki Reed, whose various talents include singing, acting, writing, directing, producing, and now designing (she launched her jewelry line, Matlin Era, four months ago) declared her favorite look, “a denim shirt buttoned up with a cute necklace under the collar.” Sounds like the perfect uniform for a real-life exponential threat.

Target issued an apology today for an offensive color label on a dress sold online.
An online shopper noticed today that a dress on Target.com was available in “Dark Heather Gray” for one size but “manatee gray” for the larger size.
A photo of the offensive label started circulating around the internet causing many people to wonder if the picture was actually real. Well, it’s real. Thankfully, Target has already issued an apology for dress label saying that it was an “unintended oversight.”
Target spokeswoman Jessica Deede told Forbes:
“We never want to offend any of our guests. We apologize for any discomfort that we may have caused … We are in the process of fixing the discrepancy and updating Target.com so the gray dress will be available in all styles … We’re working on updating our systems right now.”
Deede said that Target uses “manatee gray” for many products. Towels, rain boots, and shirts are all available in the color, which by itself, isn’t really offensive.
While it’s true that Target uses Manatee Gray for many products, those products typically remain the same color regardless of size.
Deede told Forbes that there were two teams working on the “Missy” and plus-size product lines and they obviously didn’t communicate with each other about the color. One team went with Dark Heather Gray and the other went with Manatee Gray.
Deede said: “We are working to update the name of the dress to reflect Dark Heather Gray. This was an unfortunate oversight and we’ll take it into consideration moving forward.”
Target has removed the dress for the time being.
In Danny Boyle's art-heist movie Trance, James McAvoy's character has a strong preference when it comes to women and pubic hair: shave it all off.
This meant that Rosario Dawson's character — and Dawson herself — had some grooming to do for her full-frontal close-up. "Waxing hurts!" she told Vulture when we saw her at the Cinema Society premiere of the film last night.
"I wasn't thrilled about that. The General, she was angry with me for a little while!" Then, clearly embarrassed, Dawson put her clutch bag up to her mouth — and kept talking.
"I should say ... hold on ... Oh, I'm so embarrassed! ... I was thinking, it would be like she was gnarly. She was mad. I don't know. I can't think of it. I'm going to get myself in trouble."
Since the Trance shoot, Dawson has given the General a break. "Got the winter do going on," she told us of her now-full bush. "I'm happy."

Here is a tweet of Conan's comment on the incident:
And you can watch the video HERE and join in on the debate on whether those are their real bodies. Here's hoping Conan addresses it on his next show, and takes off his shirt for proof.
Blake Lively's rep has played down reports that the actress has snubbed plans for a Gossip Girl movie. The 25-year-old was said to be "desperate to avoid" reprising her role as Serena Van Der Woodsen in a supposed big screen version of the show, 'infuriating' her former co-stars.
"She's being pressured on all sides to sign on," a source told Star magazine. "She thinks it's a terrible idea and is desperate to avoid the project."
Lively's rep told Gossip Cop that the story is untrue, explaining that the star "was unaware there was even a Gossip Girl movie" in the works. Lively starred opposite Leighton Meester, Chace Crawford and Ed Westwick in The CW series, which ran for six seasons until December 2012.
She was recently rumored to be in talks to play Freddie Mercury's girlfriend Mary Austin in the upcoming biopic starring Sacha Baron Cohen.
The only good reason to make a Gossip Girl movie would be to show Blair finally coming to her senses, and breaking free from that human version of a cane toad that she ended up marrying. Other than that, DNW
Amanda Bynes claims to be suing all media outlets peddling stories of "mental illnesses," reveals she has an eating disorder via Twitter
Clearly hurt by the recent press stories, Amanda Bynes took to twitter to lash out against media outlets, claiming to be pursuing legal action against all who have insinuated she may have a mental disorder. A few minutes later, Ms. Bynes revealed that she has an eating disorder. This may clear up her vehement denials that recent photos of her looking a bit worse-for-wear were really her. Girl's self-conscious, just like the rest of us.
don't make fun of my blurb, bitches. news outlets are slow
hope she's seeking help of some kind, poor dear
Fans of pop sensation Britney Spears want to colonise a tiny central Somerset village.
Some of the more vocal fans of the American pop star, who shot to fame with the single ...Baby One More Time, have deemed her a figure of divinity and upgraded her from Britney to the nickname of Godney.
Having discovered the existence of the village of the same name – with a population of 219 people at the last census – her fans have joked on Twitter about uprooting en masse to live in the village in homage to their idol.
While the town of Glastonbury routinely loses their tweets to a stream of those about the festival, and the village of Street stands no chance of getting noticed on the social networking site, the village of Godney is perhaps an unlikely contender for it’s own trending hashtag. The tags are used to a categorise messages and conversations on Twitter.
“When we first took over the pub, I thought I’d use the power of social media to promote the Sheppey Inn,” said Mark Hey, landlord at the pub.
“It made sense to use the hashtag Godney, but everything I wrote just got lost in tweets from Britney fans. And of course, the moment they found out that the village existed, that hashtag was full of people OMGing and saying they were going to move to Somerset.
“It was quite funny, but it meant that everything was getting lost in a mire of nuttiness.”
Mr Hey tried changing the hashtag to Sheppey, instead, but soon stumbled on another problem.
“There’s a town called Sheppey in Kent that seems to be pretty lively, and our stuff got lost in a stream of what was happening over there.
“It was really bad one weekend, when Britney was appearing on a show somewhere and there was a national news story when some girls were caught on video throwing a kitten around a bedroom in Sheppey.”
However, Mr Hey is reasonably philosophical about things, saying that the village’s unlikely connection to the star means that when his tweets are noticed, they get a wider audience than they might have otherwise.
“It makes me laugh, honestly,” he said.
“And I’ve also made friends with a few people in Sheppey, Kent when they’ve tweeted their dislike for the place and I’ve thought they were talking about us.
“Sometimes we’ve had some quite convoluted conversations about things.”
Mr Hey also said he isn’t aware of any of her fans following through on their jokes about moving to village.
“We tend to get a few American tourists passing through, but none of them have seemed all that interested in Britney,” he said.
And despite the star accidentally hijacking the name of the village and his tweets getting lost in a river of admiration for her, Mr Hey says he would never change the name of the pub.
“Obviously, we’re named after the river that runs alongside us,” he said.
“If they changed the name of the river, we’d think about changing our name, but that doesn’t seem very likely.”
This Queen even has real lands!
Supporters of the actress — who has played Carol since Season 1 — took to TVLine’s comments section to demand that AMC finally do the right thing and make her a regular as well.
There’s just one problem: McBride is, and has been, a regular — a fact she confirmed herself on Twitter Wednesday. Responding to the “awesome outpouring” of support following news of Chad L. Coleman, Sonequa Martin-Green and Emily Kinney’s promotions, McBride maintained, “I currently am a series regular.” She then chalked up questions about her status to, “legalese.”
The legalese she no doubt refers to also happens to be the source of much of the confusion. Unlike the majority of Walking Dead‘s regulars, McBride’s name is not included in the main title sequence alongside co-stars like Andrew Lincoln and Norman Reedus. Instead, she’s listed in the secondary credits (aka “Also Starring”) following the first commercial break — a section reserved on most shows for guest stars.
According to sources, the fine print of Walking Dead contracts gives producers (and AMC) the right to include series regulars in either section. To wit, Scott Wilson (Hershel) — who receives the same post-opening credits billing as McBride — is also a series regular.
What’s not clear is how these decisions are made. For example, why was Danai Gurira — who joined the show as Michonne in Season 3 — given main title billing immediately, while an original castmember like McBride has yet to receive that honor?
One person who (surprisingly) doesn’t have the answer is series creator Robert Kirkman. “There are a lot of executive producers on the show and that’s not my forte,” he tells TVLine. “I don’t even know what the series regular term actually really means when it gets down to it, I’m sorry to admit.”
So awesome and disgusting. Did I just see Eddie Izzard? OMG
Miami Heat player Chris Bosh and his wife returned home from his 29th birthday party to find they had been robbed of $340,000 worth of jewelry and purses, but his 2012 NBA Championship ring was left untouched, Miami Beach Police said Thursday.
Police said they got the call about the burglary at 12:30 a.m.
Bosh and his wife had left their two children and a teenager at home with two babysitters at 7:30 p.m. and they headed out to celebrate his birthday at Briza on the Bay on Bayshore Drive in Miami, the case report said. The Moroccan themed party included belly dancers and fire breathers. And a camel named Henri greeted guests. The festivities started at 9 p.m.
When the Boshes got home, they realized their closet had been ransacked, police said. Bosh contacted his security director and assistant..
No one who was home heard anything, and apparently the thieves handpicked the items they were stealing, police said. There was no sign of forced entry into the home.
Bosh's Championship ring was spared, but they took what they wanted from jewelry box, including watches and rings, police said. Bosh's wife said purses totaling about $155,000 were taken, along with $15,000 cash and 12 watches worth $300,000.
"We are leaning on the side of this being an inside job," said Miami Beach Police spokesman Bobby Hernandez.
Chris Bosh: 'I've Been a Hall of Famer'
Hernandez said police are checking to see if there had been any contractors at the home recently. The housekeepers were also being interviewed, he said.
Bosh told police there was surveillance video and an alarm at the home. The alarm was not activated because the babysitters were home. But polcie did notice that a back door on the side of the home overlooking the bay was unlocked and the front door had been unlocked when the Boshes came home.
Bosh joined the Heat in the summer of 2010 through a sign-and-trade deal with the Toronto Raptors, who drafted him in 2003. In his third season with the Heat, Bosh is third on the team in scoring and second in rebounding, averaging 16.7 points and 6.7 rebounds per game on 53.4% shooting. He also leads the Heat with 1.4 blocks per game.
Bosh and his wife, Adrienne, have a son, Jackson. Bosh also has a daughter, Trinity, from a prior relationship.

It’s finally time to meet Artie’s mother on GLEE: series co-creator Ryan Murphy broke the news that SONS OF ANARCHY star Katey Sagal will play Mama Abrams.
“So thrilled to announce my friend Katey Sagal is playing Artie’s mom on Glee!” Murphy tweeted. “There is nothing this woman can’t do!”
Representatives for GLEE confirmed the casting and that Sagal will appear in the 21st episode of the season, “Wonder-ful.” (Which, as the name suggests, is a Stevie Wonder tribute.)
Are you excited to finally meet Artie’s mother?

She's been wanting to play his mom for a while according to Kevin McHale:
