Dolly Parton postpones concert due to back problems

Dolly Parton

A back problem has forced Dolly Parton to postpone a concert tour she planned in support of her new CD. Dolly was scheduled to kick off a 13-show tour Feb. 28 in Minneapolis, two days after the release of “Backwoods Barbie”, publicist Marcee Rondan said Monday.

Doctors advised Parton to take up to eight weeks off to recover from the unspecified problem.

Rondan said she had no information on the nature of Parton’s back condition.

“I know I have been breaking my neck and bending over backwards trying to get my new ‘Backwoods Barbie’ CD and world tour together, but I didn’t mean to hurt myself doing it,” Parton, 62, said in a statement.

She said doctors told her she will be “good as new in a few weeks, and I can’t wait to get back out there.”

The tour will be rescheduled for late April through May. Tickets will be honored for the new dates.

Rachel Zoe gets denied at the Marc Jacobs show, throws a tantrum

Rachel Zoe

This is too funny!

Sources say that Rachel Zoe was seen screaming and cursing because she wasn’t allowed inside of the Marc Jacobs show. Apparently, she tried to fight her way in through the bouncers, but they pushed her back.

Here, she’s seen at the Marc Jacobs after party. I guess they’re not as selective as to who they let in.

Two-time Dancing with the Stars champ Cheryl Burke and her boyfriend of a year, actor Matthew Lawrence, have broken up, People has confirmed.

Duane “Dog” Chapman free from charges in Mexico

Duane Dog Chapman

Duane “Dog” Chapman cannot be extradited to Mexico to face criminal charges in his capture of serial rapist and fugitive Andrew Luster in 2003, a three-judge panel in Mexico has ruled.

The unanimous ruling was handed down Tuesday. The TV bounty hunter, his son Leland Chapman and associate Tim Chapman faced being sent to the resort town of Puerto Vallarta, where they captured Luster, who had jumped a $1 million bond on charges that he drugged and raped three women.

“He’s a free man,” Chapman’s San Francisco-based attorney, James A. Quadra, said in a telephone interview late Tuesday. “They can’t reinstate any criminal charges and as a result of that, there’s no basis for them to then seek extradition.”

I still don’t like this guy. I don’t care if he’s a free man or not. I still feel he’s a racist, no matter how many apologies he’s made.

Marie Osmond

Marie Osmond is returning to center stage, after agreeing to a deal with a syndicator, Program Partners, for an upcoming daytime talk show, titled, “Marie”. The show is set to launch in the fall of 2009.

Marie says that she likes the philosophy that the syndicator brought to the table and in a press conference announcing the show, says, “They’re giving me the freedom to do some things that I feel strongly about, and the timing is right for a show like this.”

Think she’s got what it takes to dethrone the queen of daytime talk?
