George Clooney in spinal surgery

He's waiting to be nursed...
He’s waiting to be nursed…
Ocean?s Twelve star George Clooney has undergone spinal surgery after realising his back problems were the cause of agonising headaches. The 43-year-old actor was injured in October while filming a fight scene for his upcoming film, Syriana. He noticed soon after that he was suffering horrible headaches, but was unsure of the cause. According to his publicist, Stan Rosenfield, surgeons discovered recently that fluid was leaking out of his spinal column, thus the reason for his discomfort. Since receiving ?spinal cap? surgery last month, George is almost completely recovered although he has had to wear a neck brace while recuperating. Any volunteers to nurse him back to health?!

Paris investigated for theft
Paris Hilton is currently dodging allegations that she stole a copy of her infamous sex video from a West Hollywood newsstand. According to US tabloids, images from a surveillance camera clearly shows the 23-year-old hotel heiress reaching out for a copy of One Night in Paris, then putting it in her bag. The story broke when the newsstand?s employeer, Gerry Castro, spoke of the scandal on scandal American TV show Celebrity Justice last week. According to Local Deputy Sheriff Steve Suzuki, “There was an incident, and she is alleged to have taken something.” Although Paris? reps haven?t made a statement, her younger sister Nicky has made her opinions known on LA radio station KABC, saying “She did something anyone would have done in this situation. It’s not a big deal. Whatever – she doesn’t care. I think this guy is trying to make it into a big deal, to get some publicity for his newsstand.” Well duh!

We can call her J-Lo!
We?re allowed to call Jennifer Lopez ?J-Lo? if we want. Phew! Apparently the name-changing issue was blown out of proportion when she made a flippant comment in an interview recently. She said at the time she was sick of being called J-Lo and was thinking of calling her album Call Me Jennifer to really sell the point. She now says, “You can call me J-Lo or you could call me Jennifer or you could call me Jenny – I don’t care!” Good, neither do we.
