ET has obtained the documents finalizing the divorce of actor-comedian Tom Arnold from Shelby Roos, his political consultant wife.
Arnold first filed for a legal separation from Roos in August 2006, but six months later, the ‘True Lies’ star asked the courts to withdraw the request because the couple reconciled. He then filed for divorce again in May 2007. They two originally married in 2002.
Arnold was married twice before, first to Roseanne Barr from 1990 to 1994, and later to Julie Champnella from 1995 to 1999.
The third time is not the charm for Ed McMahon.
The former Tonight Show sidekick was hit with his third debt-related lawsuit of the summer today, this one filed by a SoCal lending firm that says McMahon owes more than $275,000 on a 2006 loan.
Westmoore Lending of Huntington Beach claims McMahon and his wife, Pamela, defaulted on the loan early last year.
A spokesman for the 85-year-old TV icon said Monday that he hadn’t seen the suit yet.
But McMahon’s camp has seen the other two complaints leveled at him recently, including a $275,168 You-Owe-Me from a lawyer McMahon hired to work on his daughter’s divorce and an attempt by Citibank to recoup a nearly $200,000 loan.
McMahon revealed in June that he was facing foreclousre on his Beverly Hills home after falling behind on mortgage-loan payments. He said he hadn’t been able to work since breaking his neck in a fall last year.
Getting tired of being on the defensive, apparently, McMahon filed a negligence suit last month against Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he had three surgeries to repair his injuries, and the billionaire owner of the L.A. home where he fell.
Last week, Selena Gomez assured everyone that there’s no beef between her and Miley Cyrus. Now, she’s sharing some surprises she has in store for her debut album.
The actress/singer is, not surprisingly, “super excited” about starting work on it. But if fans of the 16-year-old, who stars in “The Wizards of Waverly Place” on the Disney Channel, are expecting it to be all about Selena, they’d better think again.
“I’m going to be in a band — no Selena Gomez stuff,” she told MTV News last week. “I’m not going to be a solo artist. I think that I don’t want my name attached to it.”
The star said that the album will have a pop/rock feel to it, and she plans to play instruments on some of the album’s tracks.
“I basically want to make music that is fun and that parents and kids can jump around to and have a good time to,” she said. “I will be singing, and I’m learning drums and playing electric guitar.”
She even wants to take a backseat at times during live gigs. “I would like to try it and kind of switch it up,” she said. “When I do the tour and stuff, I would like to do maybe a section on the piano or on guitar or on drums.”
And although a musical career is relatively new to her, Selena is determined not to bite anyone else’s style. “You know the [Jonas] boys and people like Demi [Lovato] are my friends, so I definitely would not copy or do anything that they did. They’re really good, obviously, at what they’re doing, so I’m going to let them have that. But it’s also just kind of fun to learn things.”
Speaking of whom … at press time, rumors continued to circulate that Selena and Nick Jonas (who spoke at a press conference Wednesday about the Brothers’ new single) are an item. The pair recently fueled the speculation when they each shared a dating story, in two different interviews, that sounded familiar. At press time, neither star had commented on the rumors.
Sophie Monk was left virtually speechless when she was interrogated about her love life during a recent Hollywood red carpet appearance.
The stunning blonde – who was previously engaged to Paris Hilton’s boyfriend Benji Madden – was grilled by Hollyscoop.com reporters and asked if reports about a fling with American Idol host Ryan Seacrest are true.
The blushing Monk said, “I don’t know, I don’t like talking about that stuff. But he’s lovely.”
And the difficult questions didn’t stop there – Monk was also asked for her thoughts about her former fiance’s new romance with the hotel heiress.
She added, “This is getting heavy… I want happiness for everyone.”
For the first time since suffering a near fatal heart attack last May, Kelsey Grammer is opening up to Entertainment Tonight about his terrifying ordeal in his first on-camera interview since that fateful day.
In the interview, set to air on Thursday, the Frasier star tells ET, “We originally said it was just a mild heart attack, and it actually wasn’t very mild,” he reveals. “They had to blast me twice and get me started all over again.”
It was while paddleboarding with his wife Camille last May near their home off Hawaii’s Kona coast that Grammer first started feeling symptoms. He was flown to a hospital in Honolulu and released several days later.
Of his near-death experience, Grammer says, “My heart stopped, and Camille was patting my head and she said, ‘That’s when you looked up at me and said, ‘I’m going now.’ And then off I went. And then she said, ‘I’m going to need to zap him.’”
Kelsey continues, “It felt like somebody was actually trying ot tear my chest apart with the jaws of life. As I lay there dying, I said, ‘Please, I can not do this. I don’t want to see anything; I don’t want to see any light; I don’t want to have any little adventures that make me want to get out of this life. I need to finish this one.’”
Grammer says he is “doing fine” now and is slowly beginning to exercise again.
“I’m playing a lot of Wii!” he said.
Tatum O’Neal has pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct for her June crack cocaine bust and could possibly have her charges dropped if she meets judge’s orders.
Per Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Elisa Koenderman’s mandate, the Oscar winner must participate in two half-day sessions in a drug treatment program and pay a $95 fee.
If Tatum completes the stipulations by her Sept. 4 court date, the case will be thrown out.
Tatum, 44, was arrested on June 1 when she was spotted trying to buy crack cocaine by her Lower East Side apartment in New York City. After a flurry of excuses and reasonings — from asserting she was conducting research for a role to asking police “Don’t you know who I am?” — the troubled star, who has publicly battled drug addiction for years, blamed the incident on the passing of her beloved dog, Lena.
“She loved that dog,” Tatum’s groomer Jorge Bendersky told OK!. “I have so many clients, I can see them going through stuff with their dog; it’s devastating. And somebody who has the inclination, or had a path with some trouble, it could push you over the edge, more when you are attached to the dog as you are.”
