Actress Lynn Redgrave, Star of Movies, TV & Weight Watchers Commercials, Dies at 67

British actress Lynn Redgrave and star of the Weight Watchers commercials, died Sunday night at her Connecticut home at age 67. She had battled breast cancer for 7 years after first being diagnosed in 2003 and undergoing a mastectomy and chemotherapy. Sister of Vanessa Redgrave and aunt of Natasha Richardson (who died in March last year in Montreal). A private funeral will be held this week.


The big coming out story on the cover of People Magazine…country singer Chely Wright (People Mag’s beautiful people issue 2001). She says, she’s gay and that nothing in her life has been more magical than the moment she decided to reveal her sexuality. The 39-year-old says she experienced a community in which homosexuality was shunned and she “hid everything” for her music. Wright is releasing her memoir, “Like Me,” and her new album, “Lifted Off the Ground,” this week. PS- An email sent to Wright’s record label wasn’t immediately returned Monday.


Nicolas Cage has officially lost his mind. He just bought a giant mausoleum in the shape of a pyramid. 9 feet tall, it sits inside a New Orleans cemetery with the stipulation that THIS is where he is to be buried. Why the pyramid? Well the National Treasure franchise of course. *he’s in maj financial trouble right now too, and has been forced to sell is medieval German castle and island in the Bahamas – um, hello! (Johnny Depp has even offered to help- Cage got Depp an agent which led to Nightmare on Elm Street). (The actor recently dyed his hair a shocking platinum blonde in order to get in touch with his "Celtic roots." And let's not forget his young son, whom he named Kal-El -- the birth moniker of Superman).


Yesterday we said there will NOT be an Anchorman 2…but good news for Tuesday, it might STILL happen. Paramount is now saying if they can reduce the budget, they may say yes.
