ICE-T went off on his wife Coco on Twitter after some photos hit the Internet of her posing suggestively with an unknown rapper named AC.9.  Ice said the pics were disrespectful and in bad taste, and made him "look and feel like crap."  Coco later apologized, saying, "Ice is right, the pics I took with this man were in poor taste & I disrespected my husband however the pics were the only thing that happened."

GISELE BUNDCHEN gave birth to a baby girl this past Wednesday.  This is the second child for Gisele and New England Patriots quarterback TOM BRADY.  They named her Vivian Lake.They also have a 2-year-old son named Benjamin . . . and Brady has a 5-year-old son named John with actress BRIDGET MOYNAHAN.  (--She plays Tom Selleck's daughter on ABC's "Blue Bloods".)

LINDSAY LOHAN spent the latter half of last week running around with THE WANTED.  After attending the Philly concert on Wednesday, she did indeed travel with the band to Boston, where she and MAX GEORGE checked into a hotel together.  Then she was out clubbing with Max Friday night, after the band's performance at Madison Square Garden.  Max isn't admitting they're a couple, but he did say that traveling with them kept Lindsay out of trouble for the week.

Dallas Cowboys nose tackle Josh Brent got into a drunk-driving accident early Saturday morning that resulted in the death of teammate Jerry Brown a linebacker who was on the practice squad.  Brent flipped his car while speeding in Irving, Texas shortly after 2:00 A.M.  He's been charged with intoxicated vehicular manslaughter, and has been behind bars ever since.  He faces up to 20 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

 After this weekend's tragedy, the Dallas Cowboys are searching for answers.  And this might be one of them: Calvin Hill, who's responsible for the team's off-the-field support programs, says they're considering equipping players' cars with those devices that keep them from driving when they're drunk.The NFL Players Union would probably have to sign off on that.  It's not clear if they would.  (--The union does already have a program in place to offer rides to players who've been drinking.)

Last week, when KATE MIDDLETON was in the hospital with severe morning sickness, two Australian radio DJs decided to try to get a call through to her room. Mel Greig and Michael Christian from 2DayFM called the hospital, pretending to be QUEEN ELIZABETH and PRINCE CHARLES.-A nurse named Jacintha Saldanha took the call, and forwarded it to one of Kate's nurses . . . who was apparently fooled by the DJs' really bad impersonations.  The prank gained attention all over the world. Well, on Friday Jacintha was found DEAD in her home.  Authorities suspect SUICIDE . . . although they didn't say how she died. A hospital administrator wrote a letter to the station saying how upset he was about the prank . . . and the palace issued a statement saying Kate and PRINCE WILLIAM were, "deeply saddened" by Jacintha's death.-The end result is that those DJs are no longer on the air.  Although they have NOT been fired. -The station issued a statement saying that Greig and Christian are, quote, "deeply shocked" about what happened, and will, quote, "not return to their radio show until further notice out of respect for what can only be described as a tragedy." This was reportedly a joint decision by both the station and the jocks. Jacintha was 46 years old.  She leaves behind a husband and two children.

 

KIM KARDASHIAN blogged that her "heart is completely broken" . . . because her 4-month-old kitten Mercy died.  Mercy was a gift from KANYE WEST, but she had to be put down after being diagnosed with a fatal, cancer-like virus. -Kim actually didn't even own the cat anymore.  A few weeks after getting it, Kim developed allergies, and would have needed to get regular injections to combat them . . . so she gave Mercy to KHLOE'S assistant.

TONI BRAXTON Tweeted on Friday that she was in the hospital for, quote, "health issues related to Lupus and blood clots." But she added that she would be home soon . . . and her rep said her doctors expect her to, quote, "do just fine and recover completely."

There was a time, before rehab, when KEITH URBAN would get depressed every single Sunday . . . because he had no one to party with.  That's actually one of the reasons he and NICOLE KIDMAN named their first daughter Sunday Rose. Keith says, "For me, Sunday used to be the loneliest day of the week because nobody's hanging out on a Sunday.  They're all with their families and I used to dread Sundays."But when I met Nic, it became my favorite day of the week because we always spent it together.  Nic had the same feeling so we said that if we had a child we should call her Sunday

PSY has subjected us all to "Gangnam Style", and if that isn't enough of a reason to DESPISE HIM . . . there's now some new ammunition. Eight years ago, in 2004, Psy performed a brutal anti-American song called "Dear Americans", which featured the lyric:  "Kill those [effing] Yankees. He was protesting the U.S.'s involvement in Iraq, and the deaths of two Korean schoolgirls, who were accidentally hit and killed by a U.S. military vehicle.-"Dear Americans" is not a goofy pop song like "Gangnam Style", it's some sort of metal-rap song.  The lyrics include the lines:  Quote, "Kill those [effing] Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives.-"Kill those [effing] Yankees who ordered them to torture . . . kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law and fathers . . . kill them all slowly and painfully."-Well, now that the U.S. has helped Psy become massively famous and rich, he's softened his position on America . . . and he wants us to know he's SUPER SORRY.In a statement, Psy says, quote, "As a proud South Korean who was educated in the U.S. and lived there for a very significant part of my life, I understand the sacrifices American servicemen and women have made to protect freedom and democracy in my country and around the world. "The song was part of a deeply emotional reaction to the war in Iraq and the killing of two Korean schoolgirls that was part of the overall anti-war sentiment shared by others around the world at that time. -"While I'm grateful for the freedom to express one's self, I've learned there are limits to what language is appropriate and I'm deeply sorry for how these lyrics could be interpreted. I will forever be sorry for any pain I have caused by those words."

Singer Jenni Rivera was killed in a plane crash shortly after takeoff early Sunday. Mexican authorities confirmed Sunday evening that the wreckage of the small plane had been found in Nuevo Leon state, and there were no survivors among the seven people believed to be on board. The Learjet carrying the 43-year-old performer lost contact with air traffic controllers after it took off from Monterrey, Mexico, at 3:15 a.m. following Rivera's concert there. Contact was lost about 60 miles away, Mexico's transportation ministry said in a statement. It was scheduled to arrive in Toluca, outside Mexico City, before sunrise.Rivera, a native of Long Beach, Calif., was known as the Diva of Banda with over 20 million albums sold worldwide and recently named one of People En Español's 25 most powerful women. She was also the star of I Love Jenni, a reality show that aired on Telemundo's mun2 documenting the singer's jet-set life as an entertainer and mother of five children. It also featured her publicist, lawyer and makeup artist, who were all on the plane with her. Earlier this month, ABC tapped Rivera to star in her own show. The self-titled comedy, Jenni, would feature her as a strong, middle-class, single Latina woman working to raise a family using unique parenting skills, reported Deadline.

 

Shannen Doherty took matters into her own hands last month -- placing a call from Los Angeles to a 911 dispatcher in Westhampton, NJ in the hopes of helping a possibly suicidal fan on Twitter.TMZ posted the audio clip of the call on Sunday Dec. 9, in which the worried Beverly Hills, 90210 actress, 41, immediately acknowledges the bizarre nature of her cross-country call."This is going to sound incredibly strange," Doherty is heard saying, "My name is Shannon Doherty, and I'm an actress and there is a girl who is threatening to shoot herself."Doherty explained to the dispatcher that the fan, an unnamed 27-year-old woman, had sent her direct Twitter messages claiming she would commit suicide if Doherty didn't give her a phone call."I'm completely untrained to deal with somebody threatening suicide," Doherty admits during the call. "It's been an undoing thing and my security guys told me to block her, because she's aggressive and does very erratic things . . . I felt bad for her to be honest."The Shannen Says star then follows the dispatcher's instruction, tweeting the fan to get her home address."I would love it if you guys would just call back and let me know," she asked.The dispatcher, naturally, couldn't help but gush just a little over the famous caller."All my coworkers can't believe I'm on the phone with you!" the operator admitted toward the end of the call
