Did Guilt Make Him Do It?

Maybe he had a lot of other issues on his plate but lying about Michael Jackson surely weighed the heaviest. From Radaronline:

The father of a boy who sued Michael Jackson and accused him of sexual molestation died by committing suicide, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.

Evan Chandler, formerly a Beverly Hills dentist, shot himself in the head. He was found dead in Jersey City, N.J.

Jersey City Police Department spokesman Stan Eason told RadarOnline.com: “Evan Chandler’s body was found at 5.35 pm on November 5 by the concierge at his luxury apartment building in Jersey City. We have ruled it as suicide because he was found with a gun held to his body and had a single bullet wound to the side of his head. Mr. Chandler was 65.

“There was no note found in the apartment but officers did find medication in keeping with a serious medical condition. A doctor based at Colanta Hematology in Bayonne, NJ, had called the concierge, asking him check on Mr. Chandler’s apartment as Mr. Chandler had missed an appointment. It was thanks to the concierge’s actions that Mr. Chandler’s body was discovered. Mr. Chandler’s body has now been returned to his family.”

In the early 1990s, Chandler reported Jackson to authorities in both Los Angeles and Santa Barbara, charging the King of Pop with molesting his son, then 13.

But the case never went to trial because the boy received a civil settlement for “personal injuries arising out of claims of negligence” from the superstar.

Both parties signed a confidentiality agreement, promising not tot talk about the case or the multi-million-dollar settlement.

Playboy For Sale!!!

If you have a spare $300 million, you can own the empire that Hef built and his daughter destroyed....That's right, Playboy started to suck and go downhill when his daughter took the reins. That's when the womne started to look faker and faker and a lot more like plastic. Guess his sons will not be taking the throne!

from reuters.com:

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Playboy founder Hugh Hefner changed American pop culture, one centerfold at a time.

With his Playboy Enterprises Inc in talks to be sold for about $300 million, the 83 year-old Hefner will be giving up control over the iconic adult entertainment empire he founded that was instrumental in shaping society's opinions on nudity, sex and free speech.

Playboy magazine also showed men how to enjoy stylish clothing, good liquor, sports cars and other luxuries, and became a standard bearer for that lifestyle -- real or imagined.

"All that kind of stuff just piled up issue after issue -- promoting that idea of consumer abundance as being synonymous with the good life in this country -- and Hefner is very important in promoting that idea," said Steven Watts, author of "Mr. Playboy: Hugh Hefner and the American Dream."

But as Playboy's fortunes waned, some of the symbols of wealth that surrounded Hefner became harder for him to hang on to.

Playboy Enterprises Inc is in talks with Jim Griffiths, a former entertainment president at Playboy, and private equity firm Golden Gate Capital, to sell itself for about $300 million, a source familiar with the matter said Friday.

Playboy declined to comment. Golden Gate Capital, which is in joint talks with Griffiths, were not immediately available for comment.

The company is also in separate talks with Iconix Brand Group to sell itself, sources told Reuters on Thursday.

The company has been looking for a buyer for months, even before the appointment of a new chief executive in June, when Scott Flanders replaced Christie Hefner, the daughter of the magazine's founder Hugh Hefner.

Al Bundy is distraught:


Adult Swim Fans!!

check this out from reuters! I'm going to make my own season!!

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Adult Swim, the raunchier side of Cartoon Network, is letting its fans design their own DVDs.

Starting Monday, visitors to AdultSwimShop.com can choose 110 minutes' worth of TV episodes, some artwork for the DVD case and disc face, as well as create a menu and title, and Adult Swim will mail the finished product to them for $20.

Adult Swim's Build a Custom DVD launches with 100 episodes of those shows and others. By year's end, its entire originals library of more than 1,000 episodes from more than 30 series will be available.

Adult swim also distributes its content digitally via iTunes, Xbox Live and PlayStation Network.

The initiative is similar to Warner Archive Collection, whereby Warner Bros. lets consumers select classic film titles online for DVDs that are "manufactured on demand" and mailed. Warner Bros. and Cartoon Network share the same parent, Time Warner.

The Kardashians are Ovah

Or KardASSians....whatever. Paris Hilton is pissed and aims to take back the reality show crown as the queen. We all know that when Pari$ decides to put her mind to something, she manages to achieve it, no matter how much we might hate the bish. Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, she's coming for you.

Paris Hilton is declaring war on her former best friends, the Kardashian sisters, for becoming more famous and earning more cash than she does.
The hotel heiress is fuming that Kim and her sibs, who got their first big break by hanging out on the Hollywood scene with Hilton, have eclipsed her in the fame and money stakes. Sources say she's hatched a plan to boost her brand by pushing a new beauty line and make herself more likable by playing down her lavish lifestyle.
A source told Page Six: "Paris is furious that Kim got her start by hanging out in Hollywood with her -- and now, the Kardashians have it all, the reality shows, the magazine covers, the big appearance fees and promotional deals.

"She used to command $100,000 for club appearances, but now Kim is the hottest girl -- and they aren't friends anymore. The magazines are bidding around $300,000 for Kourtney's baby-shower and baby pictures. And Khloe's wedding brought in record ratings for E!

Sources close to Hilton said she's carefully working on the launch of her new hair and beauty line, which she'll unveil in Beverly Hills on Tuesday, taking the lead from the Kardashians by having her family at her side.
And she's keen to play up her more stable relationship with Doug Reinhardt and talk about the possibility of marriage and babies.
