Jennette McCurdy's Mother Loses Battle With Cancer

Jennette McCurdy's mother, Debra, has lost long battle with cancer. The "iCarly" star's mother passed away on Friday, September 20, according to a statement from the actress' representative to E! News.

"Jennette has suffered an unimaginable loss," the statement reads. "Please respect her and her family's privacy at this time of mourning. She appreciates the love and support of her fans."

Debra had been battling the disease for 17 years. She went into remission, but the cancer was back in 2010.

"In February 2010, my mother had sinus surgery and her doctors found breast cancer cells in her sinuses," the "Sam & Cat" star wrote on the Wall Street Journal. "After several scans, they also found cancer in her skull, lymph nodes, ribs, sternum, thoracic and lumbar spine and pelvis. And just a few weeks ago, they found cancer in my mother's brain and she has started another round of chemotherapy for the cancer in the rest of her body," she said back then.

Debra was under constant pain, but she kept taking care of her daughter. "She can barely stand, yet she gets up before me in the morning so that she can make me a mug of hot chocolate. I don't know how she does it, but she claims it's what makes her happy," Jennette said.

Jennette is scheduled to host Nickelodeon's Worldwide Day of Play this weekend. According to TMZ, she has canceled her appearance at the event.

Michael Buble's X-Rated Photos Surface

X-rated pictures of a man who appears to be Michael Buble have surfaced online. According to a Radar Online report, the steamy photos were taken at an apartment in Vancouver in the summer of 2000.

According to a source close to Buble, the singer was in an alcohol-fueled bash that day, where the party "got out of hand." A photo shows a woman crouching in front of him. She slipped her hand into his pants, while he looked at the camera and laughed. Another photo shows him burying his face in a woman's chest. Another photo features him between a woman's leg, while another snap of the party features the woman showing her behind to the camera.

The source explained the situation, "Michael had broken up from his girlfriend a few months earlier and he went on a bit of a tear-up. He was nursing a broken heart. When we returned to this apartment things got out of hand. It stunned all of us at the time but then we started laughing. There was a lot of whistling and hooting. There was no shame about it. Everyone even allowed photos to be taken!"

The source added, "These photos are the exact opposite of the image that he has portrayed publicly for years. Michael has always been a ladies' man."

Buble is now married to Luisana Lopilato. The couple, who tied the knot in 2011, became first-time parents after they welcomed a son Noah in August.

'Rocky V' Star Tommy Morrison Dies at 44

Tommy Morrison, former WBO heavyweight champion who starred in "Rocky V", has passed away. Tommy's promoter Tony Holden tells ESPN that Tommy passed away at the age of 44 at an Omaha, Neb., hospital Sunday night, September 1.

Tony adds that Tommy's wife Trisha was beside him during his passing. The family will not disclose the cause of death. "I don't know what the official cause of death at the hospital will be. You prepare for things like this, and still you feel like you got hit by a truck when you hear the news," Tony said on Monday.

Tommy, whose nickname is "The Duke", was born in Arkansas and grew up in Oklahoma. He won his first heavyweight fight in 1989 after defeating Alan Jamison in the first round. In 1993, he won the WBO heavyweight title following his win from George Foreman. Tommy's boxing career was ruined after he was tested positive for HIV and his license was suspended by Nebraska in 1996. He later denied that he contracted the disease.

Tommy had some runs-in with the law in the following years. According to Associated Press, he was charged with DUI in some occasions and also weapon possession. In 2000, he was sentenced to jail for two years. Another year was added in 2002 for violating parole.

Besides fighting in the ring, Tommy was also famous for starring in boxing movie "Rocky V" in 1990. He played rookie boxer Tommy Gunn who was trained by Sylvester Stallone's character Rocky Balboa.

Dr. Phil Apologizes for Drunk Sex Twitter Question

Dr. Phil McGraw, who recently landed in hot water because of a controversial question about drunk sex he wrote on Twitter, has apologized for offending people with the Twitter post. Senior vice president/publicity for CBS, Stacey Luchs, explains in a statement to USA Today that the tweet was written to "invoke discussion" with his followers.

"This tweet was intended to invoke discussion leading into a very serious show topic based upon a recent news story, hence the #teensaccused label," Luchs said. "It was a poll question, not a statement or a joke... This was a research post in preparation for a show, not a personal post and Dr. Phil deleted it the second he saw it."

"It was clearly ill-advised," Luch added. She continued, "We sincerely apologize that it suggested anything other than what was intended, data gathering. As you can imagine, Dr. Phil is very upset that this happened."

A tweet posted on Dr. Phil's account on Tuesday, August 20 read, "If a girl is drunk, is it ok to have sex with her? Reply yes or no to @drphil #teensaccused." It was later deleted.

Although the post was removed, it still sparked angry messages and mockery to the psychologist. "Here's a hint; if you wouldn't want it done to yourself, your child, or your loved ones, IT IS NOT OKAY," a Twitter user wrote.

"Dr. Oz was saving lives today and Dr. Phil is trying to hook up with drunk girls," Buzzfeed's Samir Mezrahi commented. "If a person is a misogynist, is it ok to just refer to him as 'Dr. Phil' from now on?" another Twitter user said.

'Real Housewives of Miami' Star Adriana De Moura to Pose Naked for PETA Campaign

"The Real Housewives of Miami" star Adriana De Moura will go naked for a PETA campaign. According to E! News, the TV personality is going to ditch her clothes and pose in a bathtub for an ad which will bring awareness to the cruel practice of keeping sea mammals for entertainment purpose.

The ad which features Adriana will highlight a question, "Could you live in a tub for 40 years?" It will be focused on the story of a lone Orca called Lolita. Killer whales travel in groups in the ocean, but the mammal is imprisoned in a small tank at the Miami Seaquarium. Lolita has been there since it was caught in 1970.

Adriana, who was born in Brazil, hopes that appearing in the ad can bring differences to the poor mammals. Adriana is passionate about the issue because Brazil has banned the cruel practice along with a few other countries. Adriana as well as the activists urge Miami Seaquarium to send Lolita to Puget Sound.

Earlier this year, four former Miss USA winners stripped down for a PETA campaign which targeted the use of fur products in pageants. The headline of the campaign which featured Shanna Moakler, Susie Castillo, Shandi Finnesey and Alyssa Campanella, read, "Feel beautiful in your own skin, and let animals keep theirs. Say no to fur."

PETA noted that millions of animals such as foxes, minks, raccoons, rabbits, chinchillas, and even cats and dogs, are electrocuted, beaten, drowned, strangled, and skinned alive every year because of their fur. "I've been an animal lover all my life, and the more I learned of the torture that animals go through in the name of fashion, I just think it's so unnecessary," Susie, 2003 Miss USA winner, said in a statement.

Simon Cowell Breaks Silence on Pregnant Adultery Scandal

The TCA panel for “The X Factor” garnered special attention this week following reports of Simon Cowell’s pregnant/adultery scandal extravangzaaaaaah.
Everyone wanted to know what the British personality’s first words would be on the hot topic and in expected Simon fashion, it was a case of sarcastic ignorance.
“Am I missing something?” he said when he was met by a bevy of reporters congratulating him on his first child, who he’s expecting with Lauren Silverman, the estranged wife of Simon’s once best friend Andrew Silverman.

Then, the tone changed, and he cut to the chase and responded, “Unfortunately, I have to keep this for the moment private. It’s just one of those things. But thank you very much anyway.”
“I would love to [talk], but I have to respect a lot of people’s feelings right now,” he added. “There are a lot of things I will eventually clear up when the time is right, but I really have to be sensitive because there’s a lot of people’s feelings involved here.”
And that was that.
Simon then met up with his judges’ panel co-stars Demi Lovato and Kelly Rowland to talk about what to expect in season three of the reality TV singing competition. This is when all the reporters started to fall asleep, so we’ll never know what they said.

Miss Universe Joining 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Cast

After months of pseudo-rumors about who is joining the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” cast, we can finally semi-confirm that the ladies' newest friend/castmate is a former beauty pageant contestant!
Two-time Miss Universe Puerto Rico Joyce Giraud has been rumored to be joining the cast for some time now and yesterday she was spotted at LAX with all the other housewives Rapunzel Kyle Richards, Prescription Pattie Kim Richards, The Fancy One Lisa Vanderpump and NOT-LeAnn Rimes Brandi Glanville.

Joyce was the second runner-up in the 1998 Miss Universe Pageant. She’s also an “actress” in the same way that Kim Richards is an “actress.”
The thing that qualifies her to be a “housewife” is that her husband is a Hollywood producer, Michael Ohoven.
Welcome to the clan, Joyce.
