Tom Sizemore drugs battle detailed in new book

April 29, 2013 ( -- Review: The cover photo of Tom Sizemore's autobiography, ''By Some Miracle I Made It Out of There,'' is a perfect introduction for what's to come. The 51-year-old actor stands looking up at the camera, instantly recognizable because of his work portraying tough-guy characters in such memorable 1990s films as "Saving Private Ryan," ''Heat" and "Natural Born Killers." His face, though, looks worn, and his eyes are those of a man who's been to hell and back. And that's exactly what his book details - Sizemore's ascent to the height of cinema, working for the Steven Spielbergs and with the Robert De Niros of the world - and his drug-fueled descent that left him imprisoned and out of options. "I was a guy who'd come from very little and risen to the top," writes Sizemore, who was born and raised in hardscrabble Detroit. "I'd had the multimillion-dollar house, the Porsche, the restaurant I partially owned with Robert De Niro. "And now I had absolutely nothing." "By Some Miracle" - the title is taken from a line uttered by his "Saving Private Ryan" character, Sgt. Mike Horvath - is a painfully honest look at a man, who, by his own admission, had become a "spoiled movie star" and an "arrogant fool" who at his lowest point was "a hope-to-die addict." Sizemore recounts his friendships with Hollywood's elite - Sean Penn, Robert Downey Jr. and De Niro among them - and his dalliances with actresses Edie Falco, Elizabeth Hurley and Juliette Lewis. It was during Sizemore's tabloid romance with former Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss that his life truly fell apart. He was convicted in 2003 of harassing, annoying and physically abusing Fleiss. While Sizemore admits in the book to being "immature" and says he regrets may of his actions, he denies striking Fleiss. Readers interested in a behind-the-scenes look at Hollywood's machinations will love Sizemore's book, but it's not for everyone. It's written in a plain, sometimes coarse prose befitting some of the hard-boiled characters Sizemore brought to life on screen. And the subject matter can at times be difficult to stomach - sex tapes, copious amounts of drug taking, etc. But in many ways, it's a story of redemption - of a man who now is trying to regain a small measure of what he squandered. "I've led an interesting life, but I can't tell you what I'd give to be the guy you didn't know anything about," Sizemore writes. Tom, readers who get through your book will know just about everything about you. (Copyright ©2013 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)

Rapper Mack 10 I'm Not Fat Anymore!!!

Rapper Mack 10
I'm Not Fat Anymore!!!
042613_mack_ten_launchDouble beef patty, special sauce? Not for Rapper Mack 10 ... who axed Big Macs (and pretty much all things cow) from his life ... and lost an incredible 60 plus pounds in the process!!!

The "Westside Connection" rapper's been HUGE since the mid-90's ... so after our photog spotted him out in L.A. last week (above) looking svelte, we contacted him to find out what's up.

Mack tells us ... he's majorly slimmed down by cutting all red meat from his life -- "I used to love to be able to order a burger or get a fat ass steak, but now I am up on eating fish, chicken and s**t."

FYI -- At his heaviest Mack was 267 and now he's South of 200.

Mack says it's all thanks to his kids -- "I want to make sure I can keep up with them. It's hard to eat healthy but that's something I got to do to make my life right."

We'll bow down to that.

Hip-Hop Rumors: Did Chris Brown Turn Down Teyana’s Cooch Offering? Sheree’ Whitfield Unhappy With Iyanla Vanzant!

Is Teyana Taylor still a virgin? She may be if this recent rumor about Chris Brown is true! The rumor suggests that TT all but gave up the chocha to Chris Breezy Brown and he said NAW. They were cool for a long time, but it seems like a ways back, she got too drunk to think. And her thoughts took over. When they did, she was so blown that she offered her body to CB. She also expressed her love for him too, the rumor says. But, what happened after is crazy. Seems like after turning her down, Brown and his people who were there too were pretty saddened. They were so sad that they left her alone and cancelled the room they were staying in. This caused for TT not to have any place to lay her now naked body. Security had to escort her out of the room, by putting a sheet around her. I’m not sure who was there but somehow she got to a friends car and was safe. Anyway…they are no longer friends.

I been talking about this. Peep what I just a got from BallyHo PR:
(April 22, 2013, Atlanta, GA.) Reality TV star Sheree’ Whitfield’s participation in the recent episode of OWN’s ‘Iyanla Fix my Life’ was not at all what she expected. In like fashion to what rapper DMX experienced on his taping of the show, Sheree’ feels that she too was wooed under false pretenses. She agreed to be on the show based on the understanding that Iyanla would be addressing and helping her and her ex-husband Bob Whitfield, deal with co-parenting issues; unfortunately during the shoot, it was clear that what she was told would be the focus of the show was not.
“Since leaving the Housewives, I’ve been at a different place in my life, a place of healing and self-empowerment, so when Bob reached out to me about doing this show on co-parenting I was excited because I thought we were both on the same page and equally wanted to work towards mending our relationship so that we could more effectively co-parent, and even more importantly I thought it was an opportunity to inspire single parents in our situation,” says Sheree’ Whitfield. “However, once shooting began I felt misled because the line of questioning was centered more on accusations of my shortcomings as a wife versus how we can begin to resolve our issues.”
During the shoot and in communications afterwards, Sheree’ expressed her concerns and displeasure with the taping to Iyanla and the show’s producers and only agreed to continue for the sake of some sort of amicable resolution, which was never realized. “Although I was caught off guard by what felt like a very one-sided and judgmental approach to “therapy,” what I did take away from this experience is that I must continue to take responsibility for doing the work to be a better person. I am completely committed to making sure that I am a positive and healthy mother for my children and being a role model for the young women that I mentor,” says Whitfield.

Sheree’ is committed to empowering and inspiring single moms, divorced moms, and other women dealing with relationship and co-parenting issues. She is working on launching her own foundation which emphasizes the importance of emotional and physical wellness for all women. Sheree is also focusing on her own career and is excited about more opportunities in film and television with her cameo appearance in ‘Scary Movie 5′ being only the beginning.

She is currently seeking speaking engagements to speak with organizations, foundations, and women’s groups about her challenges and to share her insight on surviving her own struggles and rising above them.

Snoop Supports Anti-Gun Movement via League of Young Voters

(AllHipHop) As the war on gun violence rages on and as we reflect on the Boston Marathon bombings, West Coast icon and Hip-Hop legend,  Snoop Lion has decided to do his part to end the violence.
As part of Snoop’s ongoing reincarnation to Rastafarianism, Snoop has most recently taken his stance on gun violence and is urging the youth to put down their weapons.
Seeking to secure peace across the world and within Hip-Hop, today (April 22)  The League of Young Voters Education Fund launched a grassroots non-violence campaign inspired by  Snoop Lion aka Snoop Dogg’s song “No Guns Allowed” ft. Drake Cori B - Snoop’s daughter.
The initiative was derived from startling statistics recently acquired by the League of Young Voters that state that a child or teen dies or is injured from guns every 30 minutes in the United States.
The primary goal of the campaign with Snoop is to decrease violence by advocating for youth violence prevention programs and background checks on firearm purchases.
During a recent appearance on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight, Snoop explained how a rash of tragic school shootings motivated him to write “No Guns Allowed.”
“I wanted to make some music to try to help the next person who was thinking about loading a gun, going to a school and shooting. Maybe it would help him put that gun down and think about what he was doing before they [acted],” Snoop Lion told Morgan.
In an open letter to Snoop, which garnered national media attention from leading outlets, such as Politico and BET, Rob “Biko” Baker, Executive Director of the League of Young Voters Education Fund said “I am so inspired that you are using your platform to speak up about the nation’s violence issue. I want you to know that the League of Young Voters Education Fund is committed to spreading your anti-violence message to prevent future tragedies.”
The buzz surrounding the open letter caught Snoop’s attention and prompted him to respond publicly via his Twitter account, which quickly led to a meeting between the superstar and leaders from the League.
Snoop is now publicly aligning himself with the League of Young Voters Education Fund and their “No Guns Allowed” initiative.
“‘No Guns Allowed’ is a really important song to me,” Snoop Lion said. “I’m humbled that an organization like the League of Young Voters Education Fund supports what I’m saying in it and is taking action. Especially since they have been doing work for a long time to spread an anti-violence message in our communities.”
Spreading this peaceful message is exactly what the League is doing with the announcement of their “No GunsAllowed” campaign which will include:
●     A non-violence pledge
●     A Causes petition supporting universal background checks and funding for violence prevention programs
●     Opportunities for people to share personal stories about how they’ve been affected by gun violence
●     An informative celebrity PSA series
●     A live streaming round-table discussion with key influencers and other special events
The League’s “No Guns Allowed” PSA series will use the power of storytelling to heal communities and develop innovative ways to stop violence. The videos will inform viewers about issues related to gun violence and feature celebrities, political figures, grassroots organizers and community members sharing their thoughts and personal experiences related to gun violence.
As part of a widespread social media push launching today, League of Young Voters Education Fund is also asking people across the country to submit personal stories and photos via Tumblr and share messages using the hashtag #NoGunsAllowed on Twitter and Instagram, expressing how they’ve been affected by gun violence.
“No Guns Allowed” themed events, including interactive live streams, and a round-table discussion with celebrities, community activists and political figures, will also take place. The League has been producing non-violence events, such as their Put the Guns Down rallies, for more than 10 years.
“The League is excited and honored by Snoop’s support for our ‘No Guns Allowed’ campaign,” Baker said. “We’re looking forward to collaborating with him in the near future to reach even more people and bring some much-needed attention to the work we’ve been doing for some time to make urban communities safer.”
Join the No Guns Allowed movement now by taking a pledge against violencesigning a petition in support of universal background checks and violence prevention programssubmitting personal stories today about how you’ve been affected by gun violence, and sharing photos and messages using the #NoGunsAllowed hashtag.
Visit for updates on additional “No Guns Allowed” activities from the League of Young Voters Education Fund.

Video: TV Anchor A.J. Clemente Fired for Cursing on Air During First-Ever Broadcast

A.J. Clemente got his big break on Sunday, April 21, as the new weekend anchor for NBC affiliate KFYR-TV in Bismarck, N.D. But less than 24 hours later, he's looking for work again, having been fired by the station for opening his first-ever broadcast with profanity.
PHOTOS: Celebs who've been fired from jobs
Clemente's co-anchor, Van Tieu, was introducing her colleague at the start of the Sunday evening report when he let slip a couple of curse words. (In video of the incident -- which went viral afterward and got "KeepAJ" trending on Twitter -- he appears unaware that he's on camera at the time.) The station later posted an apology online, and Van Tieu expressed regrets during the 10 p.m. broadcast, but the damage to Clemente's career had already been done.
"That couldn't have gone any worse," he tweeted after the gaffe. "Tough day, thanks for the support, we all make mistakes. I'm truly sorry for mine. I'll try my hardest to come back better and learn from this."
PHOTOS: Stars' first jobs
It appears he won't get the chance -- at least, not at KFYR-TV. According to CBS News, the station said Sunday night that Clemente had been suspended. And on Monday morning, the rookie anchor posted some bad news on Twitter.
"Unfortunately, KFYRTV has decided to let me go," he wrote. "Thank you to them and everyone in ND for the opportunity and everyone for the support."
A few minutes later, he added: "Rookie mistake. I'm a free agent. Can't help but laugh at myself and stay positive. Wish I didn't trip over my 'freaking shoes' out of the gate."

Reese Witherspoon Arrested For Disorderly Conduct After Traffic Stop

First Published: April 21, 2013 7:52 PM EDT Credit:
Reese Witherspoon’s mug shot, Jim Toth’s mugshot, April 2013
ATLANTA, Ga. -- Actress Reese Witherspoon was arrested on a disorderly conduct charge after a state trooper said she wouldn’t stay in the car while her husband was given a field sobriety test in Atlanta.
The trooper noticed the car driven by her husband wasn’t staying in its lane early Friday morning, so a traffic stop was initiated. Her husband, James Toth, had droopy eyelids and watery, bloodshot eyes, and his breath smelled strongly of alcohol, according to the report.
Toth told the trooper he’d had a drink, which Witherspoon said was consumed at a restaurant two hours before the traffic stop, the trooper writes.

Before the field sobriety test began, Witherspoon got out of the car, was told to get back in and obeyed, the report said. After she got out a second time, the trooper said he warned her that she would be arrested if she left the car again.
As the test continued, “Mrs. Witherspoon began to hang out the window and say that she did not believe that I was a real police officer. I told Mrs. Witherspoon to sit on her butt and be quiet,” Trooper First Class J. Pyland writes.

Toth was then placed under arrest. He was charged with driving under the influence and failure to maintain the lane.
At that point, the report says, Witherspoon got out and asked the trooper what was going on. After being told to return to the car, she “stated that she was a ‘US Citizen’ and that she was allowed to ‘stand on American ground,’” the report states.
The trooper then began to arrest Witherspoon. The report says Witherspoon was resistant at first but was calmed down by her husband.

“Do you know my name?” Witherspoon is quoted as asking the trooper. She’s also said: “You’re about to find out who I am” and “You’re about to be on national news,” according to the report.
Toth and Witherspoon were then taken to jail.
A message left at the office of Witherspoon’s publicist, Meredith O’Sullivan Wasson, wasn’t immediately returned Sunday.

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- There must be liquid talent in the water at the Hernandez house!
Bruno Mars’ (birth name Peter Hernandez) four sisters are making quite a splash of their own with their debut as pop music group, The Lylas.
Consisting of Tahiti Hernandez, Tiara Hernandez, Presley Hernandez and Jaime Kailani, The Lylas (an acronym for Love You Like A Sister) are determined to make it big without the help of their superstar brother.

“We want to do this as much as we can on our own at first and he’s doing his thing and we’re doing ours,” Tahiti told Access Hollywood in a new interview. “As long as we’ve got our family love and support that’s all we need.”
“There’s a lot of other people we wanna work with before we work with Bruno,” Tiara added with a laugh.
Some of those “other” people the ladies would like to collaborate with include Maroon 5’s Adam Levine and the band Fun.

“We all have different taste in music but there’s so many out there we’d like to work with,” Tahiti said, adding that The Lylas draw inspiration from Celine Dion, Beyonce, Pink, Lauryn Hill and Gwen Stefani.
In addition to their impending album (they released a single, “Come Back,” this week), the singing sisters’ journey to stardom will be chronicled in a docu-series set to premiere this fall on WEtv.

People Are Surfing On Michigan's Flooded Rivers

People Are Surfing On Michigan's Flooded Rivers

Megan Durisin at Business Insider 
[image: surfing in Michigan] Michigan is seeing crazy amounts of flooding this week — and some people are taking advantage of the record-breaking river levels. Joe Matulis, who works at Matuli Paddle Surf in East Lansing, Mich., posted pictures this week of himself and friends catching a wave on the Red Cedar River, which runs through the Michigan State University campus. His blog said he met some "rad" students who were already taking advantage of the high water levels when he got there. It wasn't the easiest, since the section of the river has lots of submerged rocks. But the su... more » 

Nicole Eggert hospitalized after 'Splash' mishap

"Splash," the celebrity diving competition on ABC, appears to have claimed another injury. Nicole Eggert, the former "Baywatch" actress, was injured after a bad landing from a dive during a taping of the show on Thursday.
TMZ first reported the accident, which an ABC rep confirmed with The Times.
According to the report, Eggert was pulled from the water after her dive, which involved multiple backflips, and rushed to a nearby hospital. ABC confirmed that Eggert was consulting with a doctor.
Though the 41-year-old actress appears not to have broken any bones, there is concern she may have internal injuries. Her kidneys in particular, are being monitored. And she's still on the show.
Eggert isn't the only star to be injured on the high-diving reality show. "Chelsea Lately" sidekick Chuy Bravo had to drop out of the program before it ever began airing because of a fractured heel he sustained during practice. And Miss Alabama Katherine Webb was advised to drop out by her doctor because of a back injury.
Kendra Wilkinson also quit the show because of her fear of heights. And extreme skier Rory Bushfield ruptured an eardrum during a dive but didn't quit the show.
Despite the mishaps and injuries, there's a small contingent of celebrities competing to win, including Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Drake Bell and Eggert.
Unfortunately, all the drama and injuries is doing nothing to save the show in the ratings. This week, the show hit a ratings low, with just 5.2 million viewers.

That's exactly what Jake Healy discovered when he created this YouTube mashup — which, fair warning, contains NSFW language. Macklemore's popular song "Thrift Shop" is accompanied by witty banter from the guys at Channel 4 News.

Jay-Z, has entered into a multi-year, worldwide partnership with his Roc Nation music label and Universal Music Group.

(AllHipHop News) Marcy projects bred rapper turned mogul, Jay-Z, has entered into a multi-year, worldwide partnership with his Roc Nation music label and Universal Music Group.
Under the new deal, Jay-Z will bring his Roc Nation artists, including Rihanna, and will operate as a standalone label within the UMG family, effective immediately.

Several other labels, including Sony Music Entertainment and Warner Music Group, made moves to try to lock down Jay-Z and the Roc Nation imprint although Jay-Z ultimately picked UMG for an undisclosed amount.

“We are looking forward to working with Lucian and the incredible team he’s assembled at Universal. We would like to applaud Lucian for collaborating with us to strike a new age deal. This agreement presents a unique opportunity for Roc Nation’s artists-being able to continue to operate as an independent label with the strength, power and reach of the best major. I look forward to a long and prosperous collaboration with UMG. It feels good to be home.” Jay-Z said in a statement to the press.
While the terms of the agreement were not disclosed, sources say Warner executive Lyor Cohen made a play for Jay-Z as part of a deal that would sign the Brooklyn bred mogul to his own firm.
Jay-Z’s signing to the world’s largest music company, led by Lucian Grainge, comes on the heels of Jay-Z allowing his last long-term recording contract with Universal’s Def Jam to expire.

In making the announcement, Lucian Grainge, Chairman and CEO of UMG, said, “In just five years, Roc Nation has established itself as one of the most successful brands in music with a reputation for developing some of today¹s most influential and popular talent. Not only does this agreement provide a dynamic platform for Roc Nation’s exciting emerging artists, it extends our relationship with the extraordinary Rihanna and represents a homecoming for JAY Z-a brilliant artist and entrepreneur, who has been a creative cornerstone of our company. All of us at UMG are thrilled that JAY and Roc Nation chose UMG as their partners, knowing we will support their artists with a level of resources, expertise and passion that is simply unmatched in the industry.”

Founded in 2008, Roc Nation is a full-service entertainment company, inclusive of artist, songwriter, producer and engineer management; music publishing; touring & merchandising; film & television; new business ventures; and a music label.

Former RHOA Star Sheree Whitfield Dishes On Phaedra Parks’ Bravo Spin-Off

Bravo has just announced a slew of new reality shows, and it's no surprise that the network is cashing in by giving spin-offs to the stars of some its most popular series.  Given that Real Housewives of Atlanta is the most watched show in Bravo's history, two of its ladies made the list.
Kandi Burruss has been working on The Kandi Factory for what seems like ages.  Her show will follow the singer/songwriter/reality star as she mentors up and coming artists who are recording their first single and creating their own music video.  It seems very fitting.  Kandi's RHOA co-star Phaedra Parks is also getting her own show…and she's basically Atlanta's answer to Judge Judy.  Also fitting.
Who should feel the need to weigh in on Phaedra's new series?  Why it's none other than fomer (booted) Atlanta housewife Sheree Whitfield!

Speaking to Rumor Fix, Sheree dishes about her former cast members' new endeavors…namely Phaedra's new spin-off (Rich People's Problems is the working title) in which she acts as a judge who serves "cold, hard justice" to Atlanta elite who find themselves embroiled in a dispute.   
Upon hearing hearing this news, Sheree laughs, “Are you kidding me?”
If you recall, Sheree and Phaedra's friendship fizzled after some confusion over Phaedra's representation of Sheree during a child support issue.  Sheree tells the site, “I wouldn’t go to her for legal advice,” adding, “but I wish her the best.”  Sure you do, Sheree.  Sure you do.
The former reality star jokes, “I don’t miss the show — I miss the paycheck!”
However, even without the Bravo show to keep her busy, Sheree is working on many projects, including a line of health and fitness DVDs (is that a new requirement to be an Atlanta housewife past or present?) and a Scary Movie cameo.
