Whitney Houston In Serious Battle With Deadly Emphysemia?!

2 Jun

Just weeks after Whitney Houston went back into rehab for drug and alcohol abuse, the National Enquirer reports that she’s fighting another serious battle: with emphysema. According to the tabloid, the 47-year-old singer is in the early stages of the lung disease and has been told by doctors that she must quit smoking immediately.

“She’s developed emphysema — and her doctors are warning her she’ll die a horrible death,” says the Enquirer’s source.

Reportedly, the responsibility for restoring Houston’s health has fallen on her 18-year-old daughter, Bobbi Kristina — who is just out of rehab herself. Poor kid.

It’s hard to say if The National Enquirer is a reliable source, since they have a bit of a hit-or-miss record. (Their most notable hit: breaking the news of the John Edwards-Rielle Hunter affair.) But the emphysema diagnosis would explain Whitney’s recent series of “respiratory infections,” as well as the shortness of breath she’s exhibited during her comeback tour.

If Houston does have emphysema, her comeback may have to come to an abrupt end: The condition is long-term and incurable, and would make it difficult for Houston to exert herself in any way (which we’d imagine would include belting out “I Will Always Love You”).

The real tragedy is that someone blessed with Houston’s singing voice would become a heavy smoker in the first place. The voice is a fragile instrument, and we hear all the time about singers struggling to keep theirs healthy. Adele has postponed her U.S. tour dates due to laryngitis, and Shania Twain admitted last month that she lost her voice to a condition called dysphonia, probably brought on by stress. We can only hope that other aspiring singers learn from Houston’s mistakes, and don’t squander their talents for any kind of addiction.

Singer Whitney Houston Enrolled In Outpatient Program For Drugs

9 May

Whitney Houston is back in treatment.

The troubled singer is currently enrolled in an outpatient program for drugs and alcohol, Houston’s spokeswoman confirms.

So when’s the embattled star expected to finish rehab this time?

No word yet on how long this latest recovery stint will be, as the rep says Houston voluntarily entered the program in order to keep up her “long-standing” recovery process.

The 47-year-old Houston has lately been working on recovering her career. She released a comeback album in 2009 and headed out on the road to promote it in 2010. The tour suffered from a number of dates getting cancelled due to illness as well as horrible reviews.

In February 2010, Houston’s camp issued a statement saying she was still in fighting form after a Brisbane show gone wrong, during which she stopped in the middle of singing “I Will Always Love You” to sip water.

Leaving aside the past problems of her ex Bobby Brown, the “So Emotional” singer’s own drug drama goes way back: In 2000, she was busted at Hawaii’s Kona International Airport for trying to sneak a bag of pot past airport screeners.

In 2002, she spilled details of her drug use to Diane Sawyer admitting that she’s experimented with cocaine, marijuana, alcohol and pills, but swore that the “party’s over.” She first entered rehab herself in March 2004 to deal with a substance abuse problem, but left after just five days. She returned a year later.

Celebrity Gossip: Paul McCartney Set To Marry Girlfriend Nancy Shevell

7 May



Paul McCartney is set to marry his girlfriend of four years, Nancy Shevell.

A source close to the New York businesswoman told People magazine: “Nancy and Paul are getting married. Ring and all – very exciting.”

The couple started dating in the summer of 2007, and were most recently seen together at the Met Gala on Monday.

It will be the third time that the Beatles star, 68, has walked down the aisle.

He was married to American photographer Linda McCartney from 1969 until her death in 1998 – the couple had four children together.

Then in 2002 he wed Heather Mills, a marriage that ended acrimoniously in 2008.

But despite that troubled relationship, Paul has remained optimistic when it comes to matters of the heart.

“I just like being in love,” he said of his blossoming romance with Nancy, 51, in 2008.

Jennifer Lopez Is Named One Of Peoples Most Beautiful Persons

14 Apr

Jennifer Lopez is having a great year, first she’s selected as one of the new judges for American Idol, her seventh album Love? is dropping in May and now at the age of 41 she has been named as PEOPLE Magazines 2011 “World’s Most Beautiful” woman.

Lopez takes some time in the magazine to talk about how aging has put her in a better place now than when she was younger:

“It’s so crazy. Rarely am I left speechless, but I feel honored. I feel not worthy, you know? I feel happy and proud. Proud that I’m not 25!” she told the mag of her honor. “I feel better, I feel smarter. In my 20’s, I just wasn’t there in my mind and my soul and my spirit. It’s just great to be in the position I’m in now and be able to share that with the world,” she explained. “I think it’s because I have a lot of love in my life. I feel lucky to be an attractive person, but I’ve always felt that real beauty always comes from your heart.”

She goes on to tout her age as a good thing in Hollywood, while explaining how aging is being redefined by various industry players:

“I think with people like me and Jennifer Aniston, Halle Berry, and Julia Roberts, this generation is redefining what it is to be a woman who is not in her 20’s anymore but is still very viable, sexy and important,” she told PEOPLE. “We have a lot to offer. And people are starting to realize the beauty in that.”

The singers secret for looking young? Plenty of daily workouts.

Summary: Well, at least one woman’s going to get a title out of American Idol this year. People has named judge Jennifer Lopez the World’s Most Beautiful Woman. And it’s not like you see anybody handing out similar men’s titles to Steven Tyler or Randy Jackson.

“Rarely am I left speechless, but I feel honored,” the 41-year-old singer/actress tells People.

Jennifer Hudson’s also on the “Most Beautiful” list, BTW.

Reality Talk: All About Aubrey Premiere Party

All About Aubrey

Oxygen is using some pretty racy photos to promote the upcoming Aubrey O’Day reality show ‘All About Aubrey’. O’Day and her cast are baring it all showing off their fantastic bodies for the show. The cast members in the photos are Kyrstal Bronson, Tiffany Paladine, Stephanie Spiropoulos and, of course, Aubrey O’Day.

Here’s the official synopsis of the ‘All About Aubrey’

“All About Aubrey” follows international superstar and multi-platinum recording artist Aubrey O’Day as she launches the next stage of her career. The lead singer in Danity Kane, one of the hottest all-girl bands with multi-platinum albums, O’Day had it all — fame, glamour, talent, and an entourage. But her sassiness got the best of her, and she was ultimately fired in the most shocking way — on national TV during an episode of “Making the Band” by her demanding boss, Diddy.

Now O’Day is ready to make a comeback and stake her claim in the industry. And once again, she plans to do it with the whole world watching. But this time it’s going to be different — it’s going to be on her terms.

At 26 years old and a little more worldly, O’Day is ready to tackle the tough questions. Will she find Mr. Right? Can she prove to the industry that she has the star power to get back on top? Can she put in the hard work to deal with the cameras, the gossip, and the backstabbing?

O’Day takes on the challenges with passion, drive, humor and honesty. With a band of good but crazy friends, tie-dyed dogs, and a demanding team of industry professionals, O’Day hopes to achieve her goals without cracking under pressure.

The show premieres on Oxygen on Monday, March 7th and will show on Mondays from 10-11 p.m. (ET).
