While you were sleeping
So, apparently, Californication is an autobiographical narrative of David Duchovny's life The X-Files actor has entered rehab for sex addiction. According to People, he's issued a statement saying, "I have voluntarily entered a facility for the treatment of sex addiction. I ask for respect and privacy for my wife and children as we deal with this situation as a family." Meanwhile, Us digs out this nugget from a 1997 Playgirl article: "I'm not a sex addict. I have never been to those meetings. It's hurtful to my family and if I was involved with a woman in a monogamous relationship, it would be hurtful to her. There was another story claiming I was a neat freak. If I had to choose one of the two, I think I'd rather be a sex addict. It's not funny and I'll be glad when it goes away."
Michael Lohan's father dies; Michael Lohan sinks to new low One would think the death of a parent would be time for private grief, but Lindsay Lohan's dad used the death yesterday of Lindsay's grandfather as an excuse to issue the following statement to OK!: "My father just, literally, died in my arms. I notified all my kids and my lawyer notified Dina's attorney. Let's see if she has the decency and respect to bring my kids to the wake and funeral. THIS will show her true colors! Thus, not even a call. But that's par for the course with Dina! She didn't even send a card or visit when he was sick." This capped off a couple of days of sniping that started when Michael attacked Lindsay's girlfriend. You can catch up here and here. Let's hope this death does not in any way impede Michael's planned television show, which he somehow also found time to announce yesterday. He said to TV Guide he plans to tell all about his ex-wife's "lies."
For Twilight fans only Stephenie Meyer's unfinished manuscript for her Twilight companion book, Midnight Sun, was leaked sometime this week. She's decided to abandon the project and make legally available unfinished draft. She says, "I'd rather my fans not read this version of Midnight Sun. It was only an incomplete draft; the writing is messy and flawed and full of mistakes. But how do I comment on this violation without driving more people to look for the illegal posting? It has taken me a while to decide how and if I could respond. But to end the confusion, I've decided to make the draft available here (at the end of this post). This way, my readers don't have to feel they have to make a sacrifice to stay honest. I hope this fragment gives you further insight into Edward's head and adds a new dimension to the Twilight story. That's what inspired me to write it in the first place." Check it out here.
